From the Back Cover
The bestselling authors return with a blistering exposé of how America is being ripped off by friends and enemies alike—with the help of our own ruling elites.
Our jobs go to China. Foreign aid goes to our enemies. Pakistan uses our money to fund terrorists who attack us. Saudi Arabia, which our soldiers have defended with their lives, funds 90 percent of the world's Islamic fundamentalism. The UN is awash in corruption; its bureaucrats steal the money we give it with total impunity. Fifteen hundred brave American soldiers have died defending the regime in Afghanistan—rated the second-most corrupt in the world! Meanwhile, European bankers and bureaucrats are taking over our economy and preempting our sovereignty.
How do they get away with it? By hiring our own political leaders, as soon as they leave office, to lobby for them to rip us off. Former House Democratic leader Dick Gephardt, for example, sits on the board of an American affiliate of a Chinese company that has been denied the right to operate in the United States because it steals our technology. Former House Republican Appropriations Committee chairman Bob Livingstone represented Libya until just before Gaddafi fell. And we have a president who willingly obliges countries that poach on our sovereignty, refusing to stand up for our interests and our jobs as they confiscate half the royalties from our offshore energy, subject our elected leaders to criminal prosecution if they go to war without UN approval, and tell us what kind of land-use policies we should pursue.
In Screwed!, bestselling authors Dick Morris and Eileen McGann lay bare the unvarnished facts as never before and suggest real, immediate, and specific steps to stop those who undermine our interests and take away our jobs. In the same vein as their previous crusading books—Catastrophe, Fleeced, and Outrage—Morris and McGann have documented, in great depth and detail, exactly how the United States is getting screwed, and how to stop it. They dig up the facts, name names, point fingers, and suggest concrete solutions—independent of partisan politics.

How dare Mr. and Mrs. Morris try to snap the American voting public out of their foggy daze that is so carefully being maintained to shut out the facts that American freedom and wealth is being happily shipped off shore so the United Nations can redistribute it more fairly among the entire world's elite ruling classes.
The USA is being sold out by a bunch of Benedict Arnolds munching away at the guts of the Nation's Institutions like termites.
The book begins with a familiar 2011 quote from Donald Trump where he states that China is screwing the USA. This is a familiar theme with Trump, but while "the Donald" doesn't provide information to back up to his claims, this book provides the proof in Spades.
The actual construction of the book consists of a short introduction followed by eleven major sections with titles such as "A World Democracy; America Without Sovereignty;" "Trick of Treaties: How the European Union is Preempting Congress and Binding Us Through International Treaties:" "The United Nations of Corruption:" " The World Bank:" "Foreign Aid: Biting the Hand That Feeds Them:" "In Our Backyard: The Chavez-Ahmadinejad Alliance:" and "The Enemy Within."
Each of the major parts includes several subchapters and at the end of each major part is a short "Action Agenda," which provides some ideas and advice on how to reverse the screwing that America is so helpfully being provided by both it's foreign allies and many of our own politicians and ex-pols.
It was the second major section that most alarmed this reader. Preparations are well under way for passing six major treaties, which would each strip the USA of its freedom and treasure. If Obama and the Senate sign and ratify the "International Criminal Court Treaty, The Law of the Sea Treaty, the United Nations Small Arms Treaty, the European Code of Conduct in Outer Space, the United Nations Convention on the Child and the requirements of Agenda 21" those treaties will mean that International Law trumps American Law, that half our offshore mineral, gas and oil wealth will have to be paid to the UN, that the UN can establish gun control in the USA, that the UN can force the USA to control green house gases and pollution and US Citizens will be forced to provide welfare to all the children in the world.
And while all these UN dictates can be enforced in our courts, in most of the other 160 nations in the UN, there is no court system that could force them to follow the dictates of that gleaming tower of knowledge, wisdom and fairness known as the United Nations.
Future Presidents and Congresses won't be able to void these treaties. Any changes will require a Constitutional Amendment passed by Congress and submitted to each state--a process that always takes years.
The most glaring problem with these treaties is that the USA is now spending twice as much money as it takes in and if it suddenly has to start supporting the rest of the world, there won't be enough money to satisfy everybody. The standard of living in America would drop to the levels of Zimbabwe and other fourth world countries.
One of the biggest surprises in this book is how eager Hillary Clinton is to get these treaties signed into law. For a former Conservative Union "Goldwater Girl" in 1964 she must know that these treaties are bad for America. While there is reason to suspect the President is using these treaties as stepping-stones to becoming head of the United Nations and being King of the World, why is his Secretary of State aiding and abetting him in his goals? If she eventually becomes President she will be inheriting a land of slaves and serfs under the supervision of the United Nations and its collection of despots.
This book is an alarming page-turner. It's difficult to put aside because so much of it rings true. The fact that the Obama Administration is rushing preparations to sign these treaties before he and his Democrat Senate leave office is absolutely terrifying for a free people. However, most of the news media has reported nothing about this in favor of News about Mitt Romney's high school pranks and Obama's visits among the sparkling galaxy of Hollywood Stars.
The Mayan Calendar, according to some so-called experts, predicts the world will end on Dec. 21 of the year 2012 (this year). If that happens there is no need to worry about some of our politicians selling America into slavery. However, if Obama loses this coming election he apparently plans to try and use his Democrat Senate to commit to these treaties in the lame duck session after the election much like he did after the 2010 mid-term. He wants to complete his goal of becoming King of the World by using the Presidency of the USA as a stepping-stone.
Enough said, read this excellent non-fiction book yourself.
But, seriously, thanks to Dick and Eileen for a well researched book that is filled with information on the elites' new tactics to push us all into their utopian plan for One World Government!
SCREWED is a book well worth reading and will be very useful even to those of us that have dedicated our lives to fighting the "New World Order."

Dick Morris and Eileen McGann demonstrate why the United Nations must be defunded to remove the possibility of a Third World War caused by the destabilization of the United States and other sovereign nations.
History has demonstrated why and how it happened under the "League of Nations" and we need to withdraw from the UN before it happens again by defunding it's Progressive Agenda.
Congratulations on a factually correct analysis of how we are being "Screwed". Thanks
Part 2 Review of "Screwed" by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann
This is an excellent book on "World Economics 101" and how the United States has permitted countries such as China to provide "Very Large and Very Illegal Subsidies to their Manufacturing" thereby making US Manufacturing totally ineffective and non-competitive.
However, it has also has been "The Fifty Year Failure of US Presidents and Congress" to "Increase Tax Revenues" instead of Tax Rates that has contributed to the United States being "Screwed" by the rest of the world.
Lowering "Tax Rates" increases "Tax Revenues" through the collection of Federal and States Income Taxes from US Corporations and newly hired US Workers; plus the "Bonus Benefit" of reducing "Unemployment, Social Security Disability, and Medicaid Benefits" to those being removed from unemployment.
