New Book Exposes Systematic Abuse by the Federal Government

No. 1 New York Times Best-Selling Author Releases Roadmap for Reclaiming America’s Lost Freedoms

Americans’ freedom is under attack by the biggest and most dangerous “branch” of government: the federal bureaucracy. In his new book, Undemocratic: How Unelected, Unaccountable Bureaucrats Are Stealing Your Liberty and Freedom (Howard Books/Simon & Schuster, May 19, 2015), renowned constitutional attorney and best-selling author Jay Sekulow alerts Americans to the erosion of their liberties by government bureaucrats who bully with impunity and without accountability.

The U.S. Constitution only allows for three branches of government. But, as Sekulow reveals, our government has birthed an out-of-control “fourth branch” in the form of a bureaucracy that robs Americans of their rights through endless rules and regulations—13,000 of them created from 2009 to 2012 alone.

So powerful and partisan is this unelected monstrosity that Sekulow warns: “This is a much larger problem than the corruption of a single government agency. This is the corruption of an entire system of government.”

Dissecting government assaults on individual freedoms, Sekulow details crisis after crisis perpetrated by an alphabet soup of unruly federal agencies:

  • An IRS targeting scheme silencing opponents of the Obama administration
  • A VA (Veterans Affairs) scandal delaying life-saving health care treatment for thousands of our nation’s veterans
  • A HHS (Department of Health and Human Services) abortion-pill mandate forcing employers to violate their religious beliefs
  • Climate-change regulations from the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) killing jobs and stifling the economy
  • NLRB (National Labor Relations Board) rules favoring union bosses over American workers

Today’s activist bureaucracy “amounts to a permanent, partisan political class that continually pushes the nation to the left regardless of who occupies the White House or controls Congress,” says Sekulow. With little oversight or accountability, “the left doesn’t need to win a congressional vote when it owns the bureaucracy.”

In Undemocratic, Sekulow provides a plan to fight back and explains why personal freedoms do not have to become a thing of the past. Coming off the heels of his No. 1 New York Times best-seller, Rise of ISIS, Sekulow now offers a practical roadmap to take back what has been lost.

Undemocratic recounts successful responses to government overreach and provides a framework for challenging federal lawlessness in the courts of law and public opinion.

Undemocratic will be available in bookstores nationwide on May 19.
