Subversion, Inc. (Hardcover)
By Matthew Vadum
Also available in digital format here.
Ballot box stuffers. Urban terrorists. Gangsters. President Barack Obama’s favorite community organizing group and former employer, ACORN, is all these things and more – and rumors of its death have been greatly exaggerated. The organized crime syndicate is alive and well – and planning to resurface before the critical 2012 elections.
In "Subversion Inc.," investigative reporter Matthew Vadum traces the checkered history of the group and proves that the members of ACORN, and the thousands of wannabe offshoots it inspired, are foot soldiers in a long-running war on America’s free political institutions.
Following the “break the bank” strategy of Marxists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, ACORN seeks to overload the system with impossible financial demands – literally destroying America’s economy. With group supporters dominating the Obama administration and the Democratic Party’s organizing apparatus, thuggery and intimidation already have their talons dug deeply in the corridors of power in Washington and are dragging our country into a socialist nightmare.
Exposing the underbelly of leftwing politics and how to destroy it, "Subversion, Inc." is the key exposé to save America’s capitalism and democracy in 2012.
“Through his careful research, Matthew Vadum shined a light that exposed ACORN’s corruption. For months I fought to cut off the flow of tax dollars to ACORN. In 'Subversion Inc.,' Vadum warns that despite the defunding of ACORN, the group has only feigned death.” - Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.)
"Thanks to Matthew Vadum's extensive research there is no way liberals will be able to whitewash the evils of ACORN. History will not be kind to America's most notorious pressure group." - Hannah Giles, investigative journalist
About the Author
An award-winning investigative journalist, Matthew Vadum is a senior editor at Capital Research Center (CRC),a think tank that studies left-wing advocacy groups and their funders. “Subversion, Inc.” is his first book and the culmination of nearly three years of research and hundreds of interviews. Since joining CRC in 2006, his work has been cited in more than two dozen books and by multiple media outlets, including Fox News, The Weekly Standard, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and The Christian Science Monitor.
In her bestselling expose of the Obama administration, “Culture of Corruption,” Michelle Malkin hails Vadum for having “the foresight and insight to report on the [ACORN] story when nobody else would.” Glenn Beck said he finally “got it” when Vadum appeared on his TV show to talk about ACORN and helped him draw one of his famous tree diagrams. The Washington Post recognizes Vadum as an opinion maker because he “writes some of the harder edged and more influential briefings” in the conservative movement.
A graduate of Georgetown University’s master’s program in American Studies, Vadum lives and works in Washington, D.C.
