Power Grab: How Obama's Green Policies Will Steal Your Freedom and Bankrupt America by author Chris Horner.
Christopher Horner, hailed by Glenn Beck as a “Watchdog” and praised by Rush Limbaugh as the “longtime go-to guy on global warming extremism,” has compiled a jaw-dropping account of the government’s arrogant plans to take over America’s access to abundant, afforable energy—and by doing so, take over our economy and limit the individual freedom we’ve so long taken for granted.
"Barack Obama’s “Green” Policies Start With Controlling Your Energy…and End With Your Life.
If Obama and his “green” coalition get their way, we’re headed for blackouts, skyrocketing energy prices designed to bankrupt disfavored industries, and even greater government control of our economy. Obama’s green jobs agenda masks a declaration of war against America’s most reliable sources of energy—coal, oil, and natural gas. He seeks to shut them down and convert America to green energy—mostly wind and solar—in an irresponsible experiment that will guarantee an energy crisis and drive America from recession to depression. The Obama administration, working in collusion with green groups allegedly protecting the environment, unions protecting their paychecks, and local elites protecting their ocean views, is putting the special interests ahead of your interests. In Power Grab, best-selling author Christopher C. Horner reveals,
How Obama is obsessed with “climate change” schemes at huge expense to our economy—even as the scientific case for global warming is collapsingHow Obama is counting on the liberal courts to gain greater control over American industryHow Obama’s “green jobs” policies are stripping jobs from America and sending them overseasHow Obama’s policies, if enacted, will dramatically change your life—starting with your confidence that a flipped switch will provide light, that a faucet will flow with water, that your home will stay warm, and there’s gas at the pump."

Reviews of Power Grab
Power Grab exposes the agenda of the Obama administration and its allies, from ‘green jobs’ to the cap-and-trade energy tax as ways to cram down the Left’s long-held wish list of demands, and dream of ‘organizing society’. Horner reveals what their rhetoric means, how the schemes work and what it all spells for you if they win. Power Grab lays bare the plan to replace your individual liberties with the state, securing the Left’s dream of making decisions for you and your family: what you can drive, how you can live, and what sorts of jobs and future they deem acceptable for Americans.” — MARK LEVIN, bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host
“Power Grab exposes the incestuous relationships between the Obama administration and the piles of taxpayer money it wants to pipeline to the Big Green juggernaut consisting of Big Business and Big Labor. Horner shows that the green agenda isn’t so much about a clean environment as it is about redistributing income from us to them.” — STEPHEN MOORE, member of the Wall Street Journal editorial board and senior economics writer
“Chris Horner . . . is right again in his new book Power Grab, which exposes what the extremists are really after: power over you, your wallet, and even your right to self-government. Power Grab is essential reading for fighting back.” — REP. MICHELE BACHMANN
