I hope you caught Max Blumenthal on the IFC channel last week. He did a great piece on the Tea Party movement which he follows up close and personal.

My thirty minute documentary on the Tea Party and right-wing fear-mongering airs tonight at 8PM ET on the Independent Film Channel.

The Denver Post admires the series and praises the research Max has done on his 30 minutes episode called "Fear."

He knows some of the topics we covered all too well and wrote an amazing blurb about our new book:

“If you want to understand the forces behind the extreme demonization of President Obama and the assault on progressive America, look no further than Over the Cliff. With witty analysis and thorough investigative reporting, Amato and Neiwert provide a definitive chronicle of the far-right’s rapid movement from paranoia to outright violence. —Max Blumenthal, author of Republican Gomorrah: Inside the Movement That Shattered the Party

That was very kind of Max. Yes, I'll be posting about the book since it's my first one. I'm tremendously excited about it and I was very fortunate to be working with David on this project.

Don't forget, you can grab a copy here.

OTC is the #13 ranked book in Politics on Amazon right now and you know how competitive I am. You can also buy it from all the major online retailers and Over the Cliff is now available as an ePUB and mobi-Kindlen on

And we have all the end notes listed on our Over The Cliff website which is a great resource guide in of itself. Check out the notes on Chapter 3: Reaping the Whirlwind, as an example.
