New York Times bestselling author, Malcolm Nance, offers a chilling warning on a clear, present and existential threat to our democracy… our fellow Americans
“Malcolm Nance is one of the great unsung national security geniuses of the modern era." —Rachel Maddow
To varying degrees, as many as 74 million Americans have expressed hostility towards American democracy. Their radicalization is increasingly visible in our day to day life: in neighbor’s or family member’s open discussion of bizarre conspiracy theories, reveling in the fantasy of mass murdering the liberals they believe are drinking the blood of children. These are the results of the deranged series of lies stoked by former President Donald Trump, made worse by the global pandemic.
The first steps of an American fracture were predicted by Malcolm Nance months before the January 6, 2021 insurrection, heralding the start of a generational terror threat greater than either al-Qaeda or the Islamic State. Nance calls this growing unrest the Trump Insurgency in the United States or TITUS.
The post-2020 election urge to return to a place of “normalcy”—to forget—is the worst response we can have. American militiamen, terrorists, and radicalized political activists are already armed in mass numbers and regularly missed in the media; principally because Trump’s most loyal and violent foot soldiers benefit from the ultimate privilege—being white.
They Want to Kill Americans is the first detailed look into the heart of the active Trump-led insurgency, setting the stage for a second nation-wide rebellion on American soil. This is a chilling and deeply researched early warning to the nation from a counterterrorism intelligence professional: America is primed for a possible explosive wave of terrorist attacks and armed confrontations that aim to bring about a Donald Trump led dictatorship.

“A scathing look at the MAGA crowd and the existential threat they pose to American democracy. … A stark warning to be taken seriously."
“We must heed the warnings of the risks to our beloved system of government that continue to come. To that end, we can have no better Paul Revere than Malcolm Nance."
—Rob Reiner, Actor and Director
"As Malcolm Nance, or 'Nancetradamus' as we call him on my show, due to his uncanny predictions, has told us long ago, 'They want to Kill Americans'! It's an apt title for his new book, and a clarion call from a true patriot to save our democracy from the Trump insurgency before its too late."
"There are great writers and there are those who have lived the words on the page; Malcolm Nance is both. He pulls no punches, chronicling the attack on our liberties with the fierceness it demands."
—Chip Franklin, Host, KGO Radio, San Francisco
"Most national security analysts break down what you're seeing. Nance breaks down what's yet to be seen. He's a decorated military veteran, an astute analyst, and a powerful truth teller. No matter what your personal political affiliation is, Nance has a voice you need to hear. If you care about the future of our country and our world, you should read this book."
—Paul Reickoff, President and Founder, Righteous Media
"Nance forcefully articulates his belief that American democracy is in mortal danger... this is a frightening and provocative thought experiment."
