Laura’s first book, The Hillary Trap, was first released in June 2000. Her second and third books, Shut Up & Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics, and the Media are Subverting America and Power to the People, respectively, are both bestsellers. Ingraham’s most recent book, The Obama Diaries, was released July 13, 2010, and immediately shot to the top of The New York Times bestseller list.
In Power to the People, Ingraham focuses on what she calls the “pornification” of America. She discusses issues such as traditional family values, education, and American patriotism. Power to the People stresses the importance of getting involved in the culture: “The main thread that runs through these topics I cover in the book is civic involvement and civic virtue. Get in the game. Start a blog, report on what is happening at your local PTA. If you are a parent, and you are disgusted at what you see on your kid’s computer screen, do something. Track where your kids go on the Internet. Tell your kids that you are going to review where they are on the Internet. Be a parental filter. Learn about threats that face America–from within and out. Education is the first line of defense.”
In The Obama Diaries, Ingraham tackles the cynical “razzle-dazzle” marketing of the Obama White House and exposes the administration’s true plans to “remake America.” Major media outlets love to describe the president as “no drama Obama,” but The Obama Diaries tells a different tale through hilarious and informative “diary entries.”
