Logan Beirne

Author of Blood of Tyrants: George Washington & the Forging of the Presidency

“What would George Washington do if he were here today?”—based on what he and fellow founders actually did 225 years ago!

Blood of Tyrants provides groundbreaking details on how our first Commander in Chief dealt with the issues still facing us in the present: including military tribunals, torture, traitors, treason, drones, enemy combatants, political partisanship, Congressional meddling, government debt crisis, and let’s not forget, sex scandals.

Drawing directly from the papers of George Washington and his contemporaries, Beirne creates a living history that dispels common misperceptions about our founding fathers and tells us how they would handle our present crises and forge America’s future.

Here’s the short list—According to Beirne, Washington would have:

COMMENCED impeachment proceedings over the IRS partisanship, Libya, and AP spying.

RESPONDED with force to the first sign of trouble in Benghazi.

TREATED debt repayment as a moral obligation and our top domestic priority.

STAYED OUT of Syria and allowed our enemies to kill one another.

EXECUTED bin Laden’s son-in-law rather than provide him with a civilian trial.

TORTURED captured foreign enemy combatants, if it meant saving American lives.

EXECUTED Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in Guantanamo years ago.
