November 2011: Given that Election 2012 is exactly one year away, my seminar manual How To Counter Group Manipulation Tactics, updated last summer, is in such demand printings can barely keep up. So, I have tweaked the publication a bit once again to reflect the new sense of urgency. It is still the small, compact size without the spiral binding. The self-tests are still there, with a couple improvements, and the strategies remain expanded beyond education issues to include other topics such as environmental regulations that are at the forefront of committees, focus groups and task forces. Here’s a sample of the comments I am getting:



“I'm reading your 2011 ‘How to Counter’ book, in preparation for a trip to Santiago, where I will be meeting with government, business and free market think tank people, giving a couple of presentations, participating in a debate…. You have done a masterful job of analyzing the provocateur, change agent, community organizer, consensus-builder, societal controller mindset and tactics — and explaining how to counter them. It is exactly the education that my colleagues need. I'd like … another copy of your book to take with me and give my colleagues.” -- Paul Driessen, Author, Columnist and Senior policy advisor, Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow and Congress of Racial Equality

“If you’ve been to a public meeting lately, you will see the meeting is run by a man or woman who is not really part of the group in an ‘official’ capacity. They are called “facilitators.” His/her job is to bring the group to ‘consensus’…. If you begin to question the policy, or ask who the facilitator represents, or in general show signs of disagreement, the facilitator quickly loses his/her charm and begins to [portray] you as “uncooperative” or a troublemaker who is wasting the group’s time…. Best-selling author Beverly Eakman has been conducting one-day seminars for years to teach the good guys how to bust up these facilitator-controlled public policy meetings…. The problem was, Beverly could only conduct so many seminars and that made for a small distribution of the [accompanying] manual. Now that has changed. Beverly has updated the manual to stand on its own … and released it as a stand alone book. That means activists across the nation can now learn how to take back control of their government just by reading and following the advice in How To Counter Group Manipulation Tactics, 2011 Edition.” -- Tom DeWeese, President, American Policy Center (as published in The New American)
