PHOENIX, AZ, December 07, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — A whirlwind of legal woes orbit around Donald Trump. While the American media spotlight, ever enthralled by the sensationalism of the moment, remains fixated on Trump’s legal issues, a crucial and overlooked danger continues to unfold. As the never-ending drama surrounding Trump’s legal battles captures headlines, the influence of Putin’s strategies quietly attempts to reshape the trajectory of American politics. The shadow cast by Putin over the landscape of American democracy, and his influence over Trump, grows larger and darker by the moment.

Elizabeth Graham’s new book, ‘From Democracy to Democrazy’, is an intriguing and informative “must read” from a woman who is probably the best-informed American on the terrifying realities concerning Vladimir Putin’s motivations and his control over Trump.

In her book, Graham describes how Putin intends to destroy our democracy from within – and he is succeeding. As a Cold War-era spy, he blames the U.S. for the fall of the Soviet Union. The tools used to achieve this destruction include: racism, violence, insurrection, cyber-attacks, inflation, isolationism, and the conversion and control of American “assets”, which includes Donald J. Trump.

Where is the proof? Proof and verification is found in Graham’s stunning new nonfiction book – ‘From Democracy to Democrazy’. The ebook version of the book was ranked number one in three categories on Amazon only weeks after it’s release. It was an immediate bestseller.

Elizabeth Graham had a Top Secret Security Clearance while a senior in high school, and immediately upon graduation began working undercover with the CIA. She later joined the SAIC’s Foreign Systems Research Center (FSRC) for 12 years. Eight of these years were spent studying Russia and Russian, and managed the largest Russian-language military, technical and intelligence library in the U.S. She began to travel to the Soviet Union and then became one of the very few Americans to move to the USSR. She lived under Communism in the Soviet Union, then Russia, and Central Asia long enough to become bi-cultural – she became Russian. Her first-hand knowledge and understanding of life in a communist or dictatorship country is shared with Americans in this book, as well as an expression of pure fear of Trump’s behavior, decisions, and words.

As stated on her website, “When you first read From Democracy to Democrazy, you might think you have found yourself in the middle of a John Grisham novel, or a movie like The Manchurian Candidate. This story line however is true.” From her rejection of an invitation to join the KGB (and surviving to talk about it), to Trump’s attendance at the Beverly Hills nightclub opening in Moscow (her oldest daughter managed this joint venture) – her real-life experiences were absorbed only through firsthand encounters. Knowledge gained during this journey is shared with her readers and is entirely factual. This is not a slanted political story written with the intention of swaying political positions, but rather a rendition of her life’s hard-earned wisdom.

In a recent blog post, Graham stated, “Trump’s admission of his guilt is a reflection of not just his stupidity, but the arrogance with which he leads his life. This is a man who is lock, stock, and barrel under the control of Vladimir Putin who is a dictator who wishes to destroy the United States. Trump’s stupidity also led to his 4 bankruptcies. No U.S. bank would loan him money, which led to his working with the Russians, who have laundered millions upon millions (dirty cash) of dollars via Trump’s real estate deals. His tax information provided verification. The Trump Tower in SoHo (New York) was entire bankrolled by Russians.

“Russians loan money to foreigners for ONE reason – to gain control and compromise that individual. They loaned about $9 million to France’s opposition leader Ms. Le Pen. Trump Jr. said in 2008 ‘In terms of high-end product influx into the U.S., Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets.’ In other words, ten years before Trump became President, most of his income came from Russia. The Russians even openly admitted to election interference and support for Trump in 2016, and they said that they would continue this effort. Of course they wish to have a Russian-controlled American in the White House. Graham explains to the American public how this happened and what it means to our democracy.”

From ‘Democracy to Democrazy’ has received rave reviews and five-stars from readers and reviewers. Kirkus Reviews wrote: “The book’s real value lies in Graham’s personal story, not only as an expert on Russian society, but as a White grandmother and former Republican who finally came to terms with America’s history of discrimination. Graham’s astute commentary is also accompanied by an entertaining and informative assortment of political cartoons, graphs, and charts. A well-researched expert guide to authoritarian regimes and the fragility of democracy in America.”

An Amazon reviewer stated, “This book is a must-read for Americans who want to know true facts about what’s happening to our country. It takes courage to write about the truth and not fall into that ‘fake news’ trap. This book will give you a stunning perspective – comparing the similarities of how our government operated with Trump at the helm to how Russian government (the DUMA) operates in Moscow. This comparison will shock you. . . . She also connects all the dots of the Trump administration and his partnership with Putin. Thank you, Elizabeth.”

Another reviewer said, “Ms. Graham brings a unique perspective on Putin, as well as Trump’s many relationships with Russians. She speaks Russian and some Ukrainian and worked under-cover with a top-secret clearance. She lived in Russia for nearly 20 years. She also explains how ‘mass manipulation’ began in totalitarian countries, and about how so many Americans were ‘brainwashed’ due to Trump’s repetitive rhetoric – a proven form of brainwashing. Her explanations of how Russia operates to entrap foreigners – including Trump – and then threatens their loved ones is an eye-opener for most naive Americans.”

Elizabeth Graham lives in a quiet rural city in northern Arizona. She had 4 children and has 3 grandchildren. Her oldest daughter died July 16, 2016 when she was in Japan.

Her college days were in Los Angeles with the desire to become a high school teacher. However, she was destined to study Russia, Russian language, and live a life of Top Secret clearances and undercover work. This lead to senior nonprofit management positions and consulting jobs in strategic places like Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia, all of the former Soviet countries (15 countries including the Baltics, Central Asia, and Ukraine), Pakistan, Afghanistan, Rwanda, Bosnia, Peru, Brazil, and many other locations.
