Did President Obama Serve the American People—or Lockheed Martin?: A Book of Revelations

by Steffy Sota

I am a ghost writer.In life, I was a Washington outsider and investigative reporter who knew more about what was going on in Washington than most insiders did. I saw General Stanley McChrystal—the commanding general of international and U.S. forces in Afghanistan—and his staff-- letting off steam, partying, and openly bashing the Obama administration for what McChrystal and his staff saw as a lack of leadership. When my investigative report on McChrystal appeared in Rolling Stone, it set off a political firestorm—McChrystal was ordered to Washington where he was fired unceremoniously.With access to the Obama re-election machine in the "panic of 2012," I reported the behind-the-scenes story of the Obama campaign trail: from the Democratic convention to Obama's self-destructive performance at the first debate—all culminating in Obama’s incredible victory in the early morning hours of November 7th.On June 18, 2013, I died in a single vehicle automobile crash in my Mercedes C250 Coupé in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles at 4:25 a.m.  I died under suspicious circumstances.In Did President Obama Serve the American People—or Lockheed Martin? I present my objective research on President Obama and the Obama Administration. I present the facts, just the facts. My report is comprehensive, yet concise.In the end, President Obama’s legacy is not in the hands of his contemporary world, national, or local leaders, politicians, pundits, reporters, critics, future historians, think tank gurus, donors, university professors, friends, or golfing partners.In the end, President Obama’s legacy rests in the minds and hearts of the American people.My hope for America is that in some small way my objective research will contribute to how President Obama’s legacy is viewed now and in the future.Open Access PolicyYou are free to share, copy, or redistribute the materials in this text in any medium or format.

Leviathan (Wisehouse Classics - The Original Authoritative Edition)

by Thomas Hobbes

LEVIATHAN or The Matter, Forme and Power of a Common Wealth Ecclesiasticall and Civil-commonly referred to as Leviathan-is a book written by Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) and published in 1651 (revised Latin edition 1668). Its name derives from the biblical Leviathan. The work concerns the structure of society and legitimate government, and is regarded as one of the earliest and most influential examples of social contract theory. Leviathan ranks as a classic western work on statecraft comparable to Machiavelli's The Prince. Written during the English Civil War (1642-1651), Leviathan argues for a social contract and rule by an absolute sovereign. Hobbes wrote that civil war and the brute situation of a state of nature ("the war of all against all") could only be avoided by strong undivided government... (more on www.wsiehouse-classics.com)

The Role of the University in a Dysfunctional Society: A Book of Revelations

by Steffy Sota

I am a ghost writer.In life, I had one of the greatest reputations in the academic world. This thought made me retch. Fame is the thing I had most wanted from childhood; and after I got it, I had no understanding whatsoever of its basis—why people responded to what I said. I felt only disgust with my public "noble" character. I did not consider myself a scholar: I knew no languages except English, and I didn’t see the point of a systematic study of literature. I did not consider myself a critic, either, and I was surprised whenever I heard myself referred to as one. I hated Hudson; I disliked most of my colleagues; I disliked teaching graduate students. After a routine disagreement over the merits of a dissertation, I refused to teach in the Graduate School again. I was frequently depressed, I had writer’s block, and I drank too much. I did not even like my first name. I wished that I had been called Quentin or Dick.I held myself a discreet distance from any group with which I might be too quickly identified—professors, critics, liberals, curmudgeons, writers. I was all of those things, of course; I could not deny it. But I resented being understood under the auspices of anything so insufficiently nuanced as a rubric. I wanted to feel superior without betraying to others my sense of low self esteem. A lot of psychic energy went into the care and maintenance of my persona. It was the price I paid for a life of the mind.I think of my intellectual life as a struggle, not energetic enough, against all the blindnesses and malign obfuscations of the academic world. For me, a liberal is a person who believes that the right economic system, the right political reforms, the right undergraduate curriculum, and the right psychotherapy will do away with unfairness, snobbery, resentment, prejudice, neurosis, and tragedy. People’s political opinions may be rigid; but they are not necessarily rigorous. Political opinions tend to float up out of some mixture of sentiment, custom, moral aspiration, and aesthetic pleasingness. Today we live in an age of "fake news," "sound bites," "slogans," "insults," "insinuations," "name calling," "bickering," "nitpicking," and "demagoguery."I am happy I died when I did.The Role of the University in a Dysfunctional Society is comprehensive, yet concise.Open Access PolicyYou are free to share, copy, or redistribute the materials in this text in any medium or format.

Mr. President, I Want You to Know Why I Continue to Support You: A Book of Revelations

by Steffy Sota

I am a ghost writer.In life, I served as the 39th Vice President of the United States from 1969 to 1973 under President Richard Nixon.I have the unenviable place in American history as the first Vice President forced to resign in disgrace.I pleaded "nolo contendere," or no contest. The judge reminded me that this was the ''full equivalent'' of a guilty plea for failing to report and pay taxes on income I received in 1967 when I was Governor of Maryland. In return for my plea, the Federal prosecutors agreed not to seek my indictment on allegations of kickbacks and bribery.If the revelations behind the career of every politician were suddenly made visible to the world—who would escape whipping?Many of America’s white middle class felt their values threatened by the upheaval and change that marked the 1960s and 1970s. They considered me their most vociferous champion. But their faith in me was destroyed by the revelations of avarice and mendacity that repudiated my claim as an upholder of lofty moral standards. I was a disgusting hypocrite.Oddly, I was remarkably apolitical in taste and demeanor. I preferred playing gin rummy with my aides to backslapping and handshaking with precinct captains and Republican county chairmen.My harsh response to riots and demonstrations alienated many of the Black leaders who had supported me and this response gave me a reputation as a hardliner. I hated the press. I referred to one reporter as a "fat Jap." I used the word "Polack" when answering a press conference question. "When you've seen one slum, you've seen them all," I once remarked casually.I attacked the ''tiny and closed fraternity of privileged men'' who packaged and delivered television news. Frank Stanton, then president of CBS, said that the Nixon Administration, through me, was making an ''ominous'' attempt to intimidate television reporters. I assailed The New York Times and The Washington Post. ''The American people should be made aware,'' I said, ''of the trend toward the monopolization of the great public information vehicles and the concentration of power over public opinion in fewer and fewer hands.''In attacking the news media and critics of President Nixon's Vietnam War policies, I used phrases such as ''nattering nabobs of negativism,'' ''effete corps of impudent snobs,'' ''pusillanimous pussyfooters,’’ and ''hopeless, hysterical hypochondriacs of history.''At the hight of my career, I was # 3 in popularity among Americans after President Nixon and Billy Graham.I said that politicians who encouraged antiwar demonstrations were ''ideological eunuchs'' and that the ''decadent few'' misleading the nation's youth should be ''separated'' from society ''with no more regret than we should feel over discarding rotten apples from a barrel.''More than anything else, I hated "leaks" to the press.My resignation came only 10 months before President Nixon himself resigned the Presidency in the face of impeachment proceedings related to the 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee offices in the Watergate Hotel.My only consolation is that there will never again be a politician in America like me.Mr. President, I Want You to Know Why I Continue to Support You is comprehensive, yet concise.Open Access PolicyYou are free to share, copy, or redistribute the materials in this text in any medium or format.

I Love You and Still Support You, Hillary: A Tribute

by Steffy Sota

Since the election, I’ve been in mourning for Hillary Clinton. Her loss has shaken me to the core. I sleep fitfully. I’ve gained five pounds. I dread going to work. I am afraid to watch television.I am not a professional writer. I’m not even a writer. I text. I tweet. I link. I like. But I just can’t vent my feelings any other way than through words.Words, words, words.Ironically, I am normally a woman of few words.If you are expecting a well-written, professionally organized and edited e-book, I apologize.A quick read with an open mind is all that I require...and maybe a lot of pondering and re-hashing.A short engaging discourse to me is not specifically meant to be outright political or tied to any specific moral view point as much as it is directing your eyes to what is the GOOD we fail to see in everything around us.It might come off as arrogant to some, but I see it more like speaking a heart-felt truth, and maybe a bit as a commiseration with friends like you.Open Access PolicyYou are free to share, copy, or redistribute the materials in this text in any medium or format.
