THE NEXT RED WAVE: HOW CONSERVATIVES CAN BEAT LEFTIST AGGRESSION, RINO BETRAYAL & DEEP STATE SUBVERSION, by Jordan Sekulow  (Author)

Publisher: Center Street (September 24, 2019) 

Popular radio host and conservative legal and political commentator Jordan Sekulow offers an action plan that will bring real change to government and help secure the future of our nation. The next red wave is coming: November 3, 2020. We face battles on many fronts. The Deep State bureaucracy will stop at nothing to undermine the conservative agenda, even when that’s the agenda chosen by the American voter. The liberal bureaucracy will continue to work alongside former liberal government officials from, yes, the Obama Administration and Team Clinton. In this election, the Left’s prized goal – exclusively – will be defeating President Donald Trump by whatever means necessary. A red wave that surpasses the turnout and figures of the historic 2016 election will be the only way to win. Our opponents won’t be caught off guard by President Trump again. I promise you, the DNC and liberal activists organizations began working on plans to defeat President Trump in 2020 before he was even inaugurated in 2017. In fact, we have evidence of FBI officials attempting to undermine President Trump as he was preparing to take the Oath of Office. So-called “progressives” and the radical Left relentlessly force their liberal agenda on the American people. Even when Republican majorities control both houses of Congress, the deck can feel stacked against us. The confirmation hearings for Justice Kavanaugh are a good reminder about the chaos liberals can cause even when they are in the minority. Now, Democrats control the House of Representatives while Republicans maintain control of the U.S. Senate. We deserve better. All Americans deserve better. We deserve politicians who keep their promises. The only way to force action and hold our elected officials accountable is to know the issues and engage the political process. But it’s more than just fulfilling our civic duty at the ballot box. It’s being actively engaged in public discourse in between elections. Battles – important battles – are won far more often in the court of public opinion than in any federal courtroom. These battles affect our lives every single day. It’s time to fight back and come together to generate the next red wave. We can’t wait another moment. Now is the time to do it. It really is up to us. The clock is ticking.

DON’T BE AFRAID TO WIN: HOW FREE AGENCY CHANGED THE BUSINESS OF PRO SPORTS, by Jim Quinn (Author)

Publisher: Radius Book Group (November 5, 2019)

Labeled by The New York Times as “instrumental in helping change the face of major professional sports,” attorney Jim Quinn has influenced modern sports business for decades. Beginning back in the 1970’s with the landmark Oscar Robertson basketball free agency case, Quinn battled owners in all four major leagues to make sure the players got their fair share. In the early 1990’s, he faced the goliath National Football League and won the right to free agency for players, Quinn has spent a lifetime dealing in the gritty sports business to make fair agreements for players. Quinn shares significant cases and legal proceedings across major American sports and tells stories of the courtroom battles he fought on behalf of players and labor leaders seeking economic justice in their workplace. He sheds light on known and unknown figures who committed to larger causes than themselves and that modern sports owes a debt to the leaders of the past who risked their careers. Through Quinn’s lengthy career he has helped to empower athletes to speak and act in the best interest of the sports community and overcome some of the toxic figures who sought to drag down league success for their own ego and greed. In Don’t Be Afraid to Win, Quinn provides a unique point of view of someone who was personally involved in making changes happen in the business. His is a masterful examination of how sports has grown dramatically over the decades, how it benefited from the rise of sports unions and free agency, and how there is still fairness to be gained across the leagues. As one of the nation’s premier trial lawyers over the last four decades, JIM QUINN represented the players unions in all four of the major professional North American sports leagues, helping to create and draft the first free agency agreement in professional sports, as well as the first salary cap in sports. Don’t be Afraid to Win is his third book.
