If there is anything whatsoever inherent about good, solid leadership is in the notion of how well a person acts whilst under pressure; subsequently, the good leader candidates display such notable characteristics as a hidden sense of answerability to what happens during the time of their watch.
Other unusual behavioral characteristics such as responsibility and under normal circumstances the real great leaders are sure to have a sense of liability. In other words, whatever may break, good, bad, or ugly the best leaders ostensibly find the center and it may not always be comfortable in the center but being ahead with information is always the key to solving huge problems.
Especially good leaders are never arrogant, because being arrogant defeats the very purpose of why the leader is deemed to be needed and effective. Moreover, as we know arrogance is just one of those defense mechanisms parading around showing the world that one has a behavior that shows that they are better than the rest.
So many times people in leadership positions display elements of conceit, egotism, and superiority; all the while they act with pride for their accolades. Case and point: the POTUS, Barack Obama, broke a number of laws, including bribery, misappropriation of taxpayer funds, as well as on a more personal level outright lied to the American people and fabricated data that one would hope we would have better guidance about it.
Just as when Solyandra went down within a month after Mr. Obama rendered over one half a billion dollars on what? He did not see it then anymore than through his arrogance does he see it now he believed himself to be more superior to the rest of us to make the energy investment even palatable. Now then here is my question: One can tell if a person has learned by their future behavior.
What we have experienced since is the cruel and unusual way he rallied Congress’ democrats (mainly through off book favors or simple bribery) in getting the adequate legislation to pass the Patient Affordable Care Act (ACA) and then he signed it into law.
We were angry then primarily because of the Executive Orders and Amnesty for about one million illegal aliens very much providing a bonafide reason to wonder about his mental well-being as well as did he have America’s best interests in mind? Now this Amnesty issue is looking to make “paths to citizenship” just for breaking the law – hey! That is our rule of law.
Democrats back over the border but that is another lie like ObamaCare, “Fast, and Furious, Benghazi” and all the green frauds like Solyandra.
Just so we are all on the same page – the title of this article is “Accountability” and we as well as mental giants are wondering where is the accountability for the President’s Blue Ribbon –Legacy named after himself…ObamaCare?
Still a website that doesn’t work proficiently that looks to take another billion dollars to get running correctly as well as the more than 70 percent of the American people who despise his intentional lying along with his cohorts Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Katherine Sibelius. Anyone, please name another profession that allows for this type of misconduct…
The Senate bill does not say what President Obama thinks it says. Now I really truly and honestly hope that he has been given some misinformation prior to his speaking, or else it would be natural and very normal for one to infer someone is not being honest.
As for us, the entire matter of the Gang of Eight’s cum Senate bill is just a tad worse off than the original “Obamacare” travesty. During a very recent press conference Obama stated:
[W]e do have to deal with about 11 million folks who are in this country, most of them just seeking opportunity; they did break the law by coming here or overstaying their visa, and they’ve got to earn their way out of the shadows — pay a fine, learn English, get to the back of the line, pay their back taxes — but giving them a mechanism whereby they can get right by our society. And that is reflected in the Senate bill.
Somewhere in the White House, someone must have realized that Obama’s statement is not true.
The Senate bill does not make learning English a prerequisite for legalization. The Senate bill grants the Secretary of Homeland Security the discretion to wave fines for broad groups of illegal aliens. The Senate bill does not require back taxes of illegal aliens who never filed tax returns.
Jon Feere covered these myths in an op-ed for the Christian Science Monitor on May 13 earlier this year. The Washington Times wrote a story on the “back taxes” claim on May 21 in which it was noted that the “immigration bill’s authors acknowledged Tuesday that their legislation does not require illegal immigrants to pay all back taxes, saying it would be too difficult to make them ante up everything they might owe.”
President Obama’s language is not reflected in the Senate bill, but he has probably read similar language in immigration polling. Most polls that find support for a “path to citizenship” use language just as Obama did. One of the problems with those polls is that, like Obama’s statement, they do not describe the actual legislation that Congress is considering.
This is not the first indication that President Obama has not been fully briefed on the Senate bill. On October 24th, Obama remarked, “If there’s a good reason not to pass this common-sense reform, I haven’t
Well with the greatest of respect for the Office of the President just like Obamacare, Benghazi, Iran negotiations, and scandals within the highest echelons of government – don’t you think it’s time we had a POTUS that at least seemed more aware of the issues rather than simply going out and saying whatever?
Four months earlier, the Congressional Budget Office released a report on the economic impact of the Senate bill that predicted a decade of depressed wages and increased unemployment.
Getting one’s heartbroken is never easy. Albeit if it is your pet, a sudden death, relational tragedy, or misbehaving by one of an admired person, the results are basically solidified in stone. Why else would there even be such a word as heart-broken?
Oprah Winfrey has never been one to hold her tongue.
That remained true when she sat down with BBC’s Will Gompertz and detailed how no one is above the racism that still exists in this world today … not even the President of the United States, Barack Obama.
“There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American,” she said. “There’s no question about that. And it’s the kind of thing no one ever says, but everybody’s thinking it.”
Okay…okay enough already. There is one notion when a person of respect, wealth, and consequently power begins to talk publically about a topic they unfortunately know very little about. And there is always the mention of a celebrity – just because they have celeb status does not make what they are saying anything but sputum (or spew-tum).
For some unknown reason – and people please beware – there are uneducated, malevolent, misfits, maliciously minded people who have arrived at the grandiose position of either having celebrity status, whatever that means. People, who have produced either a sex tape, maybe delivered a line in a film, or even being surrounded by robots that have this unknown status spouting off everywhere.
I will be the first to admit that the entire notion behind “Freedom of Speech” does not entitle a person to say anything they want and anywhere at that. There exists a multitude of laws either guaranteeing a person can speak, yet on the other hand there are also a multitude of laws which tell a person what is appropriate moreover, responsible to say.
Whatever it is that motivate people to espouse – much the same as venom – the words they do is something very much the mainstream-media should be trying to clear up; moreover, this is an issue that needs far more time spent when one is acquiring a degree in the journalism field or other writing.
Now for what was stated and by whom; in our quote by Ms. Oprah Winfrey basically she is saying that there is disrespect for the office of the president. How about some questions?
Why does she suppose there is disrespect for the office? Without even proffering anything from any other administration, meaning nothing from any other written source that for all we know may be an original source document, Winfrey simply states is because he’s African American.
I want to put this much in because I respect it. Just a small matter that President Ronald Reagan would not go into the Oval Office without a coat and tie, ever. He said it was the respect for the office that made him do it. Not very long afterword we elected a pseudo-President who would rather call Domino’s Pizza and place his evening’s eating accommodations over the phone rather than use the world class trained chef and staff of the White House.
Here is one for everyone…on August 8, 1973 the nation witnessed a person abdicate his position as President for the sake of showing integrity to the office he held. Richard M. Nixon resigned as president to stop things from getting any worse.
Now days in the Nu-culture or the Neo-now look at what has changed. A person by hook or by crook who has openly lied to the American people about his signature program, Obamacare, without a word of misgiving.
Sorry Oprah but playing the race card for an individual such as Barack Obama shows that you are indeed a racist among other examples from your mouth.

An openly homosexual columnist in Ireland has written a piece blasting his country for considering same-sex marriage, warning the state has no business reinventing the family and undermining children’s “right” to a mother and father.
“Same-sex marriage is not some warm, fluffy equality bunny; it’s a bare-faced state power grab,” Manning writes. “The state gets to entirely remake marriage, not as the man/woman/child model we’ve inherited from 10,000 years of history and across all cultures, but as an anything-goes irrelevant partnership agreement between adults.”
We believe that these two examples alone should have a tremendous impact on anyone who is reading. Why? Because in the first paragraph what gives the state or any legislature the power to define “family” into whatever perspective they feel is best? What the state in this particular case is doing is ignoring society’s ways of operation.
Furthermore what the state is taking the right of having a mother and father away from the child. In essence the state is foregoing mountainous volumes of behavioral and sociological data that with facts and evidence out of the hands of the people. And in this particular case – again – is having its go at playing God; or subsequently, every society for the last 10,000 years.
One last item to bring up with regards on society making. President James Madison in public writings, books, and in countless speeches warned our electorate of factions. How many times per day do you hear, “yes but…the majority doesn’t always win…” And don’t you just wish you had even one dime for every time it is stated however, the person saying it doesn’t have a clue what they are talking about?
Same-sex marriage is not supported by the majority, but states could care less insofar as that is the brevity that they reach without federal intervention. At least for now.
Interestingly Mr. Manning, who is narrating this article, goes on to say, “Manning explains same-sex unions will render marriage “irrelevant” because “for the first time, children and parenthood [will have] no place in marriage.”
And that is only one mention of the downsides of same-sex marriages. Couples are now going to the several states looking for their means of equality such as the same items that traditional marriages receive…Good luck.
“Only a man and a woman have children, despite every fantasy the gender-busters want us to believe,” Manning writes. “Every child has a right to that natural life. Same-sex marriage asks us to ignore reality and children’s rights to a mother and father.”
As for the second paragraph example, we believe what Manning is stating what about tradition, values, and morals. Moreover, (if there is such a thing) he actually addresses the rights of the unborn as well as all of the parties of the traditional marriage.
We believe that the following is why special interest groups are organizing, spending ridiculous amounts of money in support of what they may not believe.
Ireland’s Prime Minister Enda Kenny said he supports same-sex marriage “very strongly” and that the Government will actively campaign for it. Government supporting the causes, which as you know is precisely the same as Barack Obama has done here in America.

Google’s new Digital Attack Map reveals that the U.S. experiences daily cyber attacks. Though much of the map’s real-time cyber activity is untraceable, the map does confirm that China heavily targets the U.S. This underscores the need for the U.S. to make China feel a cost for its cyber espionage and theft.
Earlier this year, the cyber security firm Mandiant reported that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has stolen hundreds of terabytes of information from over 140 U.S. organizations. Also earlier this year, the Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property reported that the U.S. loses $300 billion per year from cyber espionage,
chiefly from China. This does not even begin to calculate the national security risks the U.S. faces.
Is it just me or does ALL the bells and whistles sound off regarding Comprehension Immigration Reform?
Beyond threatening other nations, China’s cyber activities are also directed toward maintaining domestic control using the “Great Firewall” to censor online access and content. In fact, cyber actors within China targeted the personal email accounts of human rights activists in China, the U.S., and Europe. News of this latest breach drove Google to end its cooperation with Beijing, believing that China’s cyber exploitation cannot coexist with business security, private-sector profits, economic progress, or global Internet freedom.
Apart from securing its own cyber networks with essential legislation—focusing on supply chain security and private-public information sharing—the U.S. should turn from its current ambivalence and advance its cyber security internationally. Partnering with friends from around the globe would allow the U.S. to lead the struggle for Internet freedom and make cyber crime too economically and politically costly to continue.
Mind you – all things being equal – one of the biggest reasons why the USA advocates having the United Nations located in the U.S. is the notion of, “Keep your friends close, but always keep your enemies closer.”

There should not be any dissenters given this little fact. Has the U.S. government ever created a business entity that experienced success? It is a quagmire indeed when one thinks about the United States inclusive of “The American Dream” and the grandiose amounts of money given away each year in funding nations that do not deserve it. It is very much like yesterdays squib about how illegal immigrants are really abusing the kind system that we offer.
All we are doing here is making an educated statement about how government entities should stay the heck out of private business’. When one takes a mild look at what the U.S. government has done to effectuate business it is a sorry and indeed expensive process to stare at.
We are not big enterprisers’ when it comes to the Social Security Administration. As long as I’ve been alive they have been regulating, stealing, and sure as anything they have created just another hog. Does anyone know what the Federal Aviation Administration does? Regulate? Whew! My father should be rolling in his urn about now – he spent over 30 years with the FAA, although what do they do in regards to the National Transportation Safety Board? These are the gang that goes out and cleans up the human parts, luggage, and try to set a course of how it happened.
Sadly however no agency is not without its bad apples. You come up upon just an arm…it is intact, very little blood albeit sporting a Rolex watch and rings loaded with diamonds. Do you think for a split second that the first person on scene is not going to be the new owners of that property?
Seriously if one were to look at government owned utilities there would be shock. All one needs to do now if look at the various phone companies. Anytime you have a chief executive on 60 Minutes who could not begin to tell you what the small excise taxes are for on your bill, there needs to be a change…another way, the guy is stealing.
Just a couple of severe concerns to pass along to you; When Henry Ford got done with the assembly line and Model T’s, just like his very rich mate Thomas Edison I don’t think this crew sat around talking of money or how to make it.
Nah, I err on the caution that a person with that kind of brain is already working on ways of getting out of the combustive engine business knowing full well that there would be future problems.
In the short of it most politicians are either lawyers, or poly-sci geeks that want to be so assuring that they learn the language of the jargon they speak – which really amounts to nothing, except for the “oh you have hurt yourself, let me get you a band aid.
Governments and their workers should stay the heck away from business. Leave insurance coverage to those who have spent 30 or so years in it. Because if you do not…you’ll soon be the pathological liar.
For years, perhaps decades, and generations the government has failed to control our borders. The southern border illegal immigration has sky rocketed since the 70s. Prior to and after September 11, 2001 there has been little or nothing concrete accomplished to establish real border security and immigration control. On the contrary, much has been done to decrease our security and immigration control.
President Bush messed up by giving illegal immigrants citizenship. Seeing this, others said to themselves, if it can happen once, it can happen again, this time for me. Let us go to the USA! President Bush encouraged illegal immigration!
The current administration has done even worse. Telling Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) not to deport, telling the U.S. Border Patrol to back off (release until court date), not getting the fence completed, do not deport unless they are a felon and dozens of other justifications for not enforcing existing federal law continues at striking rates. Promising a fast track to legal status if you violated our immigration laws is what this entire mess has turned in to.
Now let us look at the receiving end of the lack of border enforcement. The list seems endless and at times we wonder what the Hades our own government is doing.
It is vitally important to the understanding of this writing that we all huddle-up and come to a common understanding. Barack Obama has only made matters worse and in doing that he has raised a hell storm in the USA.
We, at The Contemplative Thinker, as an organization as well as individuals – mostly citizens but not all of us are US citizens are quite concerned with what this mad person is doing.
The only reasonable rationale is that he simply does not care, or that he gains pleasure counting the ways he skirts Constitutional as well as US federal law. Now let us not forget, we are talking about the POTUS here.
Yep it is that same person who tells fabrications upon more lies. We firmly believe that it has gotten to the point of pathology.
Being informative is quintessential. It was the POTUS who behind closed doors began issuing Memorandums of Order to those people who worked as Secretary’s or a Ministry for our international guests. Between the Executive Orders and Memorandums this person has authorized some 11 million or more people to come on over, free of charge, and do not worry, once here you will want for nothing.
That is after you have first disabled the U.S. taxpayer in every conceivable way. So let us make sure you are all signed up for the “Benefits Package” which of course covers food stamps, rights to healthcare, paid housing in one way or another – either just as soon as you arrive, or as soon as you have picked a place to live. Oh yes, our founders did not believe that we should pay for education so not to worry, education is free including the pencils needed to write with and paper to write on.
Now if any one of your children attending a school in the USA, and unfortunately you are down on your luck, please do not worry because we have the best school lunch programs not available in any other nation, which also includes day care and food for those children as well.
We believe in our organization that most of our elected officials have completely lost any awareness of what establishing a solid immigration system would save us in the short term. We also believe that there comes a time for diminishing returns; consequently, if one continues to make getting here easy, and then once here you’ve hit the lottery, well people just don’t look up to and try to do the same or one way or another share those values, ethics, and morals with the people they live with – point of diminishing returns.
Is this the most “UNAWARE” organization, administration, or collective entity that you have ever seen trying to make anything unscrupulous, scrupulous? We simply cannot hold back any more; what we are about to divulge easily proves that the Obama administration is without question beyond being unaware.
Okay so most people want to know about what I mean with unaware. Being unaware is a condition of not being conscious or uninformed of the situations with which one is definitely involved in. Being unaware exasperates when that person and those under his charter are not knowledgeable or fully aware of all of the information needed to make an accurate assessment.
Finally for definitions sake, for a person to be unaware is “not realizing that something is happening.” Or even worse, pretending to be unacquainted with what is happening – especially when it is under your direction or care.
Bringing up excuses from an already antiquated President Bush’s administration will only go long enough before the reality sets in and shows the true colors of individuals. And it is within those parameters we ask you whether or not this person, Barack Obama, should remain as the POTUS and whether or not many of his cronies should be maintained on the job.
Allow us to show just how ridiculous this “unawareness” has become.
How is it that a person in charge of local and international spy agencies be unaware that those agencies are maintaining data on:
Foreign leaders and Heads-of-State as well as trade partners and enemies of commerce have been victims. An entire nation of people such as the citizens of the United States. Every ally and close war partner your nation has ever had such as the United Kingdom, almost all of central Europe – Germany, France, Spain, and selective information concerning the Baltic countries; China, Russia, nations comprising the Middle East, South America and Central America and of course, not wanting to admit it but have too – Canada.
Being quoted as saying that one is unaware of domestic or international spying, especially when one is Commander-in-Chief is simply nothing shy of unconscionable. Most say it is dereliction of duty; which is an impeachable offense, but what does that charge do to the ridiculous notion of political correctness?
Like it or not this unaware person who was ushered in as President just happens to be African American. Now before getting all riled up at me – let us all be AWARE and look to evaluate what he has done to the other blacks that have political aspirations? This alone brings me to my next point. Is the unawareness by this man and his underlings a planned strategy or just plain arrogance?
This is the very question that we have had since his shady election inclusive of ACORN and big unions. Take a moment and just look at what this person has been or claimed he has been unaware of happening.
Now for Obama’s arrogance and pathological fabricating: This Affordable Care Act (Obamacare, Nat’l healthcare insurance) is just plain getting embarrassing not to mention humiliating. I would love to ask Barack Obama, “Hey Barack, have I ever done anything to embarrass you or yours?
My only discourse at this current time would be, “Man you are stinking up the world! As POTUS you must realize that what you do establishes a reaction toward us. Tone it down.”
“IRS Is an Agency in Crisis”
As if the Internal Revenue Service wasn’t in a boatload of trouble already, a congressional committee charged with rooting out corruption in government is investigating the tax agency for blowing tens of millions of dollars on employee conferences.
The probe comes on the heels of the scandal for the ages, in which the IRS targeted conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status. Organizations with conservative-sounding phrases such as patriot and Tea Party in their titles were singled out by the agency, according to a Treasury Inspector General report that ignited outrage among both Democrats and Republicans alike. Though illegal, this witch hunt against conservatives was rampant at the highest levels of the agency, according to the Treasury watchdog.
This week’s IRS scandal du jour involves $50 million that the beleaguered agency spent on hundreds of conferences for its employees between 2010 and 2012. Media reports began to leak over the weekend attributing the outrageous figure to a Treasury IG report due out this week. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, the congressional watchdog that holds government accountable to taxpayers, immediately jumped on it and will hold a hearing on the matter this week.
The conference spending includes $4 million for a 2010 gathering in southern California in which IRS employees stayed in lavish presidential suites that cost American taxpayers $1,500 to $3,500 per night. Attendees also got free alcohol and tickets to see the area’s professional baseball team. To inspire IRS staff, more than a dozen speakers were paid $135,000 in fees, including one who got a whopping $17,000 to talk about “leadership through art.”
Additionally, multiple videos were produced for the conference. One of the videos, posted on the House Government Reform Committee’s website, features IRS employees learning a popular dance called the “cupid shuffle” as they prepared for the California management conference. It’s quite entertaining though enraging that our tax dollars have been wasted on such a venture.
“The IRS is an agency in crisis,” said Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, a Republican congressman from California. “The American people expect that their tax-dollars will be used responsibly and not for financing lavish hotel suites and entertainment for government employees. The Oversight Committee will examine these egregious abuses of the public trust and an IRS culture that shuns accountability.”
Over the years the IRS has been in hot water over a series of transgressions. One of the things the agency is well known for is giving incarcerated criminals who prepare fraudulent returns tens of millions of dollars in refunds they are not entitled to. The figure increases annually and at last count the IRS doled out north of $35 million to criminals, according to a federal audit.
A few years ago the IRS came under fire for allowing 1 million foreigners—many in the U.S. illegally— to improperly claim close to $9 billion in tax credits even though they did not provide valid Social Security numbers on their return. Not long after that, the tax agency got in trouble for handing out $33 million in bogus electric car credits.
The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which was obtained by The Washington Post in advance of its release, criticizes the IRS for lax oversight of foreigners who use an alternative form of identification instead of a Social Security number. Many of the foreigners who use the code, known as an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, are illegal immigrants, according to government officials and immigration experts.
In a statement, IRS inspector general J. Russell George, who wrote the report released on Tuesday, called it ‘disturbing’ that more than $11 billion in improper payments were being handed out each year.
However as all like minded people there is an attribution [blame] that we all must take in the effort to achieve the ends of what we asked for, and though it wasn’t done to our satisfaction, we ALL must remember that unlike the old days, we had skilled politicians, practicing doctors, scholars, academics, and experts who took charge and gave it what they could.
It is never easy or welcome to try to reach “yes” with a man and his majority party publically stating, “I will not negotiate…” Therefore, I believe it is an encouragement to stand up and say, “Here is a man that has on his plate the most coveted piece of legislation that can be remembered in American history.”
The man also the POTUS, holds the keys to a law that was enacted illegally. This particular law bears his name on it, which is more like a child or offspring than most of us are incapable of knowing. And as if it or not we face the reality that ObamaCare is the legacy and hallmark of his presidency. He is holding on to this law regardless of what it will cost the country, quite openly he snares at you and I like we are out of the human race. Furthermore, this person has used bribery, collusion, corruptible tactics, and the “Cornhusker Touchdown” (around a $300 million “apportionment” for Nebraska).
Finally concluding my statement it is incumbent upon us…period! We cannot go blaming the G.O.P. for ineptitude because they were not inept. Furthermore, AND there exists the need to discuss this part – in 2012 we picked up a lot of seats in the House and a few in the Senate, surely not enough to hand us clear majorities. Although we are willing to negotiate and come upon a resolution, let us be aware that it is the left side that insists that they will not negotiate.
In short gang we asked for less spending. Let us not go on a witch hunt and take down these Members for doing what we asked them to do. Let us assist them in every way we know how. So let us start by watching our mouths and edifying words that are only appropriate for this cause.
Illustrating that the nation’s perpetual budget crisis has done little to slow down the government’s manic spending spree, the Department of Justice (DOJ) blew north of $58 million on conferences last year.
The figure does not even factor in all of the bloated agency’s extracurricular conferences because it excludes those that cost less than $20,000. One could argue that $58 million is a drop in the bucket for an agency with an annual budget of $28 billion, but these are hard times and the government is supposed to be cutting back on spending, especially for unnecessary things like conferences.
Why bother when it is not your money? Besides, DOJ brass is likely patting itself on the back for slashing conference spending by tens of millions compared to the previous two years. The agency actually reduced its conference budget by $33 million in the last two years and that includes a $7 million cut in conference spending from last year. How big of them!
These alarming figures were recently made public by the DOJ’s inspector general (Michael Horowitz), who presented a congressional committee with the many ways the agency wastes tax dollars. The DOJ watchdog put it quite diplomatically when he told the panel that the agency needs to do a better job scrutinizing conference spending as it attempts to reduce waste and inefficiency in a tight budget climate.
“We believe that the current budgetary environment demands that the Department search for adequate alternatives to conferences, such as video conferencing, and that it strongly consider restricting its conference spending even further,” Horowitz told lawmakers from the House Committee on Judiciary and Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations.
His probe also uncovered other areas in which the DOJ is wasting public money and identified more than “$250 million in taxpayer funds that could be put to better use” by the agency. Among them is the inefficient way the DOJ runs federal prisons, duplicative programs that could be combined to save money and an out-of-control division that’s awarded approximately $15 billion in grants and $27 billion in contracts in the last few years.
This is crazy stuff for an agency that was firmly ordered to buckle down on frivolous spending as the country suffers through a never-ending financial crisis. “Avoiding wasteful and ineffective spending is a fundamental responsibility of federal agencies in any budgetary environment,” the DOJ watchdog reminds. “But when times are tight, as they are today, the government must redouble its efforts to make the most of every taxpayer dollar.” Hint, hint Mr. President.
The staff here at The Contemplative Thinker openly hat-tips and sends our thanks to Mr. Tom Fitton at Judicial Watch. It is through that organizations “Corruption Chronicles” that I am able to procure much of the information.
