Introduction: There are no silver medals in politics -- The White House fence jumper -- What bureaucrats can learn from the Secret Service security model -- The IRS scandal: have we reached a turning point? -- Hitting the emergency brake on out-of-control government -- The White House drone crash and the coming privacy nightmare -- Istanbul, Bowe Bergdahl, and the unforgivable sin -- The future of policing -- The bureaucrats are far more dangerous that the gun carriers -- Charlie Hebdo, Paris terror, and presidential leadership -- The "establishment" versus the "grassroots" -- It's all about the money, but not for long -- Media bias: fighting back -- Everyone wants to be the president and here's why -- Your vote matters, but not for the reasons you may think -- It's not just the lobbyists destroying the political process -- Why blue states matter -- Can the current two-party system save us? -- Are there any good guys left? Here's the bad news -- Hillary's e-mails, Sebelius' politicking, and Clapper's lies -- America needs to "get big."
What events led a veteran Secret Service agent at the top of his profession, with no political experience, to resign his position and run for office, nearly pulling off the unlikeliest of upsets as a Republican in a deep-blue state? More importantly, what insight on issues from national and personal security to big politics can be gleaned from his successes as a Secret Service agent and failures in politics? As a former member of the elite Presidential Protection Division who served three Presidents, bestselling author Dan Bongino is uniquely qualified to provide a view from behind the curtain to warn readers about the political system that is failing them, and the security future that won't protect them. --page  of cover.
