Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 election was more than a
historic upset. It was the beginning of a major political, economic,
and social revolution that will change America — and the world.
One of the nation’s foremost conservative commentators, New
York Times bestselling author, and a mentor to many of Donald
Trump’s key advisers, David Horowitz presents a White House
battle plan to halt the Democrats’ march to extinguish the values
America holds dear.
Big Agenda details President Trump’s likely moves, including his:
• First wave of executive orders — restoring Guantanamo,
Keystone XL, nixing amnesty
• Surprising judicial appointments — Supreme Court and the
• Radical changes to federal rules & regulations — Obamacare,
EPA overreach, and a New Deal for black America
With the White House and Senate in GOP hands, and a Supreme
Court soon to follow, President Trump will have a greater
opportunity than even Ronald Reagan had to reshape the
American political landscape while securing the nation’s vital
security interests abroad.
“No president since FDR and his famed ‘100 Days’ has the chance
Donald Trump has,” Horowitz argues.
But he writes that the GOP and Trump must recognize they are
not fighting policy ideas, but an ideology — a progressive one with
a radical agenda to stop Trump in an effort to reduce America’s
power and greatness.
Big Agenda is a rallying cry and indispensable guide for how to
claim ultimate victory for the conservative cause.
Horowitz writes, “One battle is over, but there are many more to
come. This book is a guide to fighting the opponents of the
conservative restoration. It identifies who the adversaries are —
their methods and their motivations.
It describes their agenda — not merely the particular issues with
which they advance their goal, but the destructive goal itself. And
it lays out a strategy that can defeat them.”

David Horowitz, a former liberal and their most hated apostate,
writes clearly and concisely answering the questions: Who is the
Left? What is their agenda? How do Americans stop them?
The goal,” he begins, “is to put Democrats on the offensive… to
expose their hypocrisy and turn their firepower against them…
The strategy is to go for the jugular.” Conservatives generally are
uncomfortable with the idea of political brawling, even when on
the ropes as they have been throughout the Obama years. But
Horowitz stresses that if your first response to, say, the left’s
knee jerk use of the race card is to go on the defensive, then you
are losing. “To turn around the political battles conservatives
have been losing for so long, they must begin every confrontation
by punching progressives in the mouth,” he declares, referring to
boxer Mike Tyson’s famous observation that “everybody has a
game plan until you punch them in the mouth.” Donald Trump is
better suited to pursuing such a strategy than any Republican
leader in recent memory.
Horowitz goes on to note that the right must attack the left with
equal moral force, particularly at the Democrats’ Achilles heel:
their atrocious record on race as exemplified in their monopoly
control of America’s inner cities and the suffering and misery
they have wrought there."
This book succinctly explains why Donald J. Trump won, what he
will do, and why America will be better because of it. Well done.
Horowitz does a good job of explaining the context of Trump's
agenda for a conservative restoration to end the decline of
America. He does an especially good job of describing the big
picture. He shows that there are influential conservatives in Los
The United States was formed in 1776 based on the concepts of
national sovereignty, free enterprise, democracy, and equality.
Back then equality meant equality of opportunity and everyone
realized that outcomes would not be the same because people
have different abilities. The opposing view was established in
1848 with the publication of the Communist Manifesto. This view
mandated a politically enforced equality of results by a dictatorial
government. The left has promoted this policy with the slogans
changing from Communism to Socialism to Social Justice today.
This leftist movement peaked during the Obama administration
and attained the status of a religion in the media and in academia.
The idea was that a world based on free enterprise was a fallen
world and could only be redeemed by a politically enforced
welfare state. The main elements were easy access to welfare
benefits and open borders to attract more welfare recipients.
This system is funded by increasing taxation and regulation of
economic producers. This movement peaked in universities
where any criticism of the welfare state is generally forbidden.
David Horowitz grew up a “red diaper
baby” in a communist community in
Sunnyside, Queens. He studied literature
at Columbia, taking classes from Lionel
Trilling, and became a "new leftist" during
the Soviet invasion of Hungary in 1956.
He did his graduate work in Chinese and
English at the University of California,
arriving in Berkeley in the fall of 1959. At
Berkeley, he was a member of a group of
radicals who in 1960 published one of the
first New Left magazines, Root and
Branch. In 1962 he published the first
manifesto of the New Left, a book titled,
Student, which described the decade’s
Horowitz went to Sweden in the fall of
1962 where he began writing The Free
World Colossus, his most influential leftist
book. In the fall of 1963 he moved to
England where he went to work for the
Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation and
became a protege of the Polish Marxist
biographer of Trotsky, Issac Deutscher,
and Ralph Miliband, an English Marxist
whose sons went on to become leaders of
the British Labour Party. While in
England Horowitz also wrote
Shakespeare: An Existential View, which
was published by Tavistock Books. Under
the influence of Deutscher, he also wrote
Empire and Revolution: A Radical
Interpretation of Contemporary History,
In 2003, Horowitz launched an academic
freedom campaign to return the
American university to traditional
principles of open inquiry and to halt
indoctrination in the classroom. To
further these goals he devised an
Academic Bill of Rights to ensure students
access to more than one side of
controversial issues and to protect their
academic freedom. In 2006, Horowitz
published The Professors (2006), a study
of the political abuse of college classrooms.
Indoctrination U, which followed in 2008,
documented the controversies this book
and his campaign had created. In 2009,
he co-authored One Party Classroom with
Jacob Laksin, a study of more than 150
college curricula designed as courses of
indoctrination. In 2010, he published
Reforming Our Universities, providing a
detailed account of the entire campaign.
Norman Podhoretz, former editor of
Commentary magazine, says of Horowitz:
“David Horowitz is hated by the Left
because he is not only an apostate but has
been even more relentless and aggressive
in attacking his former political allies than
some of us who preceded him in what I
once called ‘breaking ranks’ with that
world. He has also taken the polemical
and organizational techniques he learned
in his days on the left, and figured out
how to use them against the Left, whose
vulnerabilities he knows in his bones.”
