Description


The New York Time bestselling expose on the politicized federal bureaucracy that actively works to promote the Democrat agenda and undermine President Trump.

The liberal media loves to characterize the Obama years as free of scandal. They pretend this is true because virtually every office in the executive branch worked to withhold evidence of wrongdoing, silence witness testimony, destroy federal records, classify embarrassing information, and retaliate against truth tellers. Yet these same tight-lipped lifers leaked like a sieve once President Trump was sworn in, freely promoting the illusion that everything he does is the new Watergate.

Sometimes even conservatives portray the Deep State as nothing more than dumb inefficient bureaucracy. In fact, it’s the opposite; the Deep State is intentional, unconstitutional, and organized.

In Deep State, Jason Chaffetz reveals an entrenched leadership within the civil service that resists exposure, accountability, and responsibility.  At the highest levels, they fight back, outlast, and work the system for their own advantage.  And they certainly don’t like disruptive forces such as Donald Trump. 

As Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Chaffetz was the tip of the spear challenging the Deep State and trying to hold them accountable. He and his colleagues took on the powerful forces at the IRS, the EPA, the DOJ, the Department of State, and more.  The deeper he dove in, the more shocking he found the brazen approach by the power brokers.  The balance of power has shifted. The Deep State has gotten used to operating anonymously and without consequence.  This is a problem bigger than we can even imagine and getting worse.  Unless we do something dramatic to wrest back control, we risk losing the ability to successfully challenge wrongdoing by the most powerful bureaucracy in the world. 

In Deep State, Chaffetz highlights the Deep State’s tactics, illuminates the problems, and offers a way to fight back and win. It is important to expose the stories, but if the American People are going to win, Congress is going to have to do things differently.  This book helps the concerned citizen understand what must be done--so they can demand real change.

 

About the Author


Jason Chaffetz is an American politician and Fox News contributor. He was elected as a U.S. Representative from Utah in 2008 after spending 16 years in the local business community. When he left Congress in 2017, he was the chairman of the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Praise For…


“You will gain a whole new appreciation for the success of Donald Trump after reading Chaffetz’s account of the Deep State army working overtime to help his opponents and subvert his allies.”

— Donald J. Trump, Jr

“Long after you finish this book, you’ll be fuming about our out-of-control federal bureaucracy.  We cannot afford to tolerate the outsourcing of our governance to career bureaucrats whose only loyalty is to big government.”—

— Senator Mike Lee

“Jason Chaffetz first fought the Deep State from the inside. Now he has written a powerful guide to how it works and how to fight it. Deep State is not to be missed.”
— Peter Schweizer

“A truly chilling call to action that will confirm your worst fears about who our government really serves and how much power Washington DC’s persistent bureaucracy has amassed with help from a complicit press, and both Democrats and Republicans in Congress. Chaffetz reveals how he became a target of the Deep State, and describes the infuriating lengths to which these actors will go to monitor and neutralize threats to their agenda --including placing spies in Congressional offices. You may be startled and shaken, and you will come to know the Deep State is real.”
— Sharyl Attkisson

STOREFRONT CLOSED FOR REGULAR BUSINESS

Nevertheless, UPB provides ship-to-home service.

Unless and until we move our on-line fulfillment team to different premises, everything you purchase from us ships from warehouses outside of Berkeley.

Much of what we used to carry on store shelves is available, except for very expensive books, used books, and titles fallen between printings.

Certain limitations apply:

  • Sometimes we may have to split an order because books are stocked at different warehouses.
  • Thus, we may remove items from a multi-book order and ask you to resubmit them on a separate order.
  • Many high demand titles ship fairly quickly. Most other titles travel from back east, adding 2 to 5 days to delivery
  • Although we love you in Canada, Latin America, and else where, U.S. orders only.
  • Certain publishers give us low merchant discounts on certain titles, sometimes no discount at all. To be honest, we've had to raise prices on these, ranging from 5% to 30% above list.

You can also purchase eBooks and audio books through us. Distributed by Hummingbird, they include publications from the major trade publishers. Just access the menu link or the sidebar image above.
