Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo.

The nation’s undisputed heavyweight champion of the border security issue in the nation’s capital, Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., has launched into a major media blitz promoting his just-released blockbuster book, “In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and Security.”

After leading off with a powerful interview on Fox News’ “Hannity & Colmes” last night – which propelled “In Mortal Danger” from No. 7,311 on’s best-seller list to its current overall ranking as No. 31, as well as No. 9 on the Nonfiction chart, and No. 2 on the Current Events list – today Tancredo is scheduled to appear on:

Tomorrow, he’s scheduled to appear on Fox News’ popular “Dayside” show at 1 p.m. Eastern. In addition, he’s scheduled for dozens of major radio interviews, including Laura Ingraham, Alan Colmes, Lars Larson, G. Gordon Liddy, Jim Bohannon, Michael Reagan, Tammy Bruce, Janet Parshall and many others.

Tancredo is the chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus. In his new book, published by WND Books, Tancredo warns that America is on a course to the dustbin of history. Like the great and mighty empires of the past, he writes, superpowers that once stretched from horizon to horizon, America is heading down the road to ruin.

English historian Edward Gibbon, in penning his classic “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” (ironically published in the year America’s Founding Fathers declared independence from Great Britain), theorized that Rome fell because it rotted from within. It succumbed to barbarian invasions because of a loss of civic virtue, its citizens became lazy and soft, hiring barbarian mercenaries to defend the empire because they were unwilling to defend it themselves.

Tancredo says America is following in the tragic footsteps of Rome.

Living up to his reputation for candor, Tancredo explains how the economic success and historical military prowess of the United States has transformed a nation founded on Judeo-Christian principles of right and wrong into an overindulgent, self-deprecating, immoral cesspool of depravity.

His recipe for turning things around?

Without strong, moral leadership, without a renewed sense of purpose, without a rededication to family and community, without shunning the race hustlers and pop-culture sham artists, without protecting borders, language and culture, the nation that once was “the land of the free and home of the brave” and the “one last best hope of mankind” will repeat the catastrophic mistakes of the past, he writes.
