    Maybe you do not much care about the future of the Republican Party. You should. Conservatives will always be with us. If conservatives become convinced that they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will reject democracy. The stability of American societ...

    One of the pleasures of too much MSNBC is the lamentations of the never-Trumpers, those conservatives who watch as the wild boar that is Trump gores their Republican party. All of them (with the exception of William Kristol) have something worthwhile to say, and what they say?from ...

    Ugh. It's only slightly more nuanced than Fire and Fury and all of the rest of them. (Why do I keep reading this books about Trump? Because I feel like if I read them all, I will come to understand why he is our president). There are some really good passages--especially when he talks ...

    He did not do it by himself. Donald Trump was hoisted into office, and is sustained there by many hands: by a conservative entertainment complex that propagandized for him; by fellow candidates for president who appeased him in the hope they could use him; by a Republican Party app...

    Democracy dies in darkness, opines a great American newspaper, but it would be more accurate to say that it dies by degrees. Where constitutional democracy has been lost, it has been lost because political actors have broken its rules turn by turn to achieve some immediately urgent g...

    Book does not add nor expand on the current knowledge at all. Simply recounts and restates the obvious, anybody watching liberal media can gather as much. ...

    UPDATE 2/4/17 ... Since I have followed the disgusting news about Trump and his presidency, much that Frum writes is familiar to me. Frum despises Trump, as do I, and over 235 pages he makes the case that such a view is well justified. How America is going to exit from this travesty...

    First, this is a really good book published at a uniquely, critically important moment in time. It's a worthwhile investment of time and, as a bonus, it's an easy read. (OK, I struggled to put it down, and decided that, once I started it, I'd rather finish it then get a good night's sl...

    A solid overview of the past two years, and how normalcy has eroded. Maybe my expectations were too high after the backstage intrigue of books like THE DEVIL'S BARGAIN and FIRE AND FURY. ...

    Sorry, Dave, but the erosion of the Republican base was well underway during Your Guy's administration. Your start date of 2008-ish for when Things Started Going Downhill in the Party is kinduva steaming load of bullshit. I don't disremember those 8 years. It was shit, and your party w...

    Considering David Frum?s one-time employer, his unabashed (though not brash) embrace of the conservative label, and the unfortunate occasion of its publication (on the heels of Fire and Fury), it?s possible his latest book may not garner the wide audience it so sorely deserves. Tru...

    Very good commentary from David Frum, a conservative journalist. He is right on about many things about who elected Trump and why they elected Trump. He notes the antipathy about immigrants many of the Trump voters have and he warns that conservatives who feel threatened will check out...

    "Trumpocracy has left Americans less safe against foreign dangers, has diverted their money from its proper purposes to improper pockets, has worked to bias law enforcement in favor of the powerful, and has sought to intimidate media lest they report things the public most needs to kno...

    Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic by David Frum ?Trumpocracy? is a solid book of those who enable, empower, support and collaborate with Donald Trump. Senior editor at the Atlantic and author of nine books including the bestseller The Right Man, David Frum pro...

    ?I just want to repeat: I?m president. I?m not king... I can exercise some flexibility in terms of where we deploy our resources, to focus on people who are really causing problems as opposed to families who are just trying to work and support themselves. But there?s a limit to...

    What a disappointing effort from David Frum! While I do not share many of the author's political convictions, he is one of the writers I turn to to better understand neoconservative Republican viewpoints. His writing in "The Atlantic" magazine, where Frum is a senior editor, is usu...

    If I were to write a book about the Donald J Trump presidency and the campaign before it, it would read very much like David Frum?s TRUMPOCRACY. I found myself time and again nodding in recognition of my own thoughts and recollections, noting that I?d written similar warnings and c...

    Trumpocracy by David Frum ? Book Review David Frum has written an erudite, scholarly, entertaining, coruscating, and, ultimately, both deeply scary and hopeful book called Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic (HarperCollins, 2018, 320 pages, $25.99/12.99). Using el...

    A very high four stars - only not 5 because I just read When Democracies Die which was a 5, and this was just slightly behind it. But this discusses many of the same ideas. I always feel badly for David Frum, a good old Republican utterly dismayed by what has happened to his party. Thi...

    Will we be a functioning democracy after Trump? After I finished Trumpocracy I was both more frightened and more hopeful. David Frum explains in this book how our entire system (which was designed to make sure that a casually cruel, corrupt person like Trump could never assume power) f...

    This is another of the recent wave of books about Donald Trump and the trainwreck that was the 2016 American election, along with its causes and aftermath. Aa a side note, there have been a lot of books written lately that take a negative view of Mr. Trump but I haven't noticed any ...

    The author of this book, David Frum, is a self-described conservative Republican. This book is not, however, primarily about conservatism versus liberalism (American progressivism). It is rather about conservativism and liberalism versus authoritarian Trumpism. As such, it is well arg...

    In David Frum?s Trumpocracy, the abnormalities of Trump and the surrounding administration are not partitioned out over weeks and months as they have been since Trump announced his candidacy but rather thrown at the reader like a barrage of fastballs that seem to have no end. This co...

    As our Country slowly erodes away: our Democracy, The US Constitution, and everything it stands for; I sit here and sadly say I told you so. Look I've married a malignant narcissist and at this point it's redundant so check my profile and my links for further insight. I can tell you ...

    While there are many anti-Trump books out there, they are for the most part written by left leaning activists and intellectuals. David Frum is a former speech writer for George Bush and a Republican, giving him a very different perspective on this presidency, yet coming to many of the ...

    I found Trumpocary to be a thought provoking commentary on the current chaotic status of US politics centered around the presidency of Donald J. Trump. Frum explains how US politics arrived to this point, rehashes the current status of the Trump presidency of the last year, and then fo...

    I've run into David Frum, the author of TRUMPOCRACY, a few times during my years in Washington, DC. This isn't unusual; one often runs into politicians, politicos, journalists, and other capital city "celebrities." My first encounter with Frum was the most memorable. I was walking my b...

    I always think rating nonfiction is impossible. What I can tell you that this is worth your time very much but it is also devastating to have it all so condensed and not in small doses. Maybe that is necessary though for even the last people to wake up..... ...
