American Nero: The History of the Destruction of the Rule of Law, and Why Trump Is the Worst Offender Details

Richard Painter and Peter Golenbock present a clear description of rule of law - arguably the single most important principle underlying our civilization. They also describe the abuses of power that have occurred throughout our nation's history. Beginning in Puritan New England with the infamous Salem Witch Trials, 'AMERICAN NERO' makes vivid stops at The Red Scare of the 1920s, Japanese-American internment, the McCarthy Era, and, much more recently, President Trump's attempt to violate the First Amendment by banning Muslims from entering the US.

While Trump is not the first offender, he is arguably the most blatant, and this unflinchingly honest and insightful work presents in devastating detail the ways in which our current president has trampled the rule of law with his attacks on the freedom of the press, the independence of the judiciary, and the autonomy of the justice department.

This not a book about right vs. left - instead, it is about the rule of law, a principle that transcends partisan politics, and how vital it is to the survival of our country. This book serves as a call to action, looking ahead to a brighter future for our country, one where citizens and officials alike protect our rights and honor their responsibilities.

    Somehow the Law is the established political clans. And their rule is upset by a newcomer. So the author squirms and tries hard to convince the readers that they have to love their leaders and never q...
