The Truths We Hold Description: A New York Times bestseller From one of America's most inspiring political leaders, a book about the core truths that unite us, and the long struggle to discern what those truths are and how best to act upon them, in her own life and across the life of our country. Senator Kamala Harris's commitment to speaking truth is informed by her upbringing. The daughter of immigrants, she was raised in an Oakland, California community that cared deeply about social justice; her parents--an esteemed economist from Jamaica and an admired cancer researcher from India--met as activists in the civil rights movement when they were graduate students at Berkeley. Growing up, Harris herself never hid her passion for justice, and when she became a prosecutor out of law school, a deputy district attorney, she quickly established herself as one of the most innovative change agents in American law enforcement. She progressed rapidly to become the elected District Attorney for San Francisco, and then the chief law enforcement officer of the state of California as a whole. Known for bringing a voice to the voiceless, she took on the big banks during the foreclosure crisis, winning a historic settlement for California's working families. Her hallmarks were applying a holistic, data-driven approach to many of California's thorniest issues, always eschewing stale "tough on crime" rhetoric as presenting a series of false choices. Neither "tough" nor "soft" but smart on crime became her mantra. Being smart means learning the truths that can make us better as a community, and supporting those truths with all our might. That has been the pole star that guided Harris to a transformational career as the top law enforcement official in California, and it is guiding her now as a transformational United States Senator, grappling with an array of complex issues that affect her state, our country, and the world, from health care and the new economy to immigration, national security, the opioid crisis, and accelerating inequality. By reckoning with the big challenges we face together, drawing on the hard-won wisdom and insight from her own career and the work of those who have most inspired her, Kamala Harris offers in THE TRUTHS WE HOLD a master class in problem solving, in crisis management, and leadership in challenging times. Through the arc of her own life, on into the great work of our day, she communicates a vision of shared struggle, shared purpose, and shared values. In a book rich in many home truths, not least is that a relatively small number of people work very hard to convince a great many of us that we have less in common than we actually do, but it falls to us to look past them and get on with the good work of living our common truth. When we do, our shared effort will continue to sustain us and this great nation, now and in the years to come.

Collected Letters From The Abyss Description: Does it matter that 20 years ago, Senator-to-be Kamala Harris ignored mail theft, attempted murder, tampering of evidence, and perjury in court documents? The story of how a (now deceased) San Francisco firefighter, in 1998, made one phone call and got the Political Machine to go to work for him, as told with the help of a selection of the official, legal and personal correspondence that was executed during a decade on the losing end of a prima facie case of municipal racketeering, a private petty paper war that destroyed my motherhood, devastated my marriage, stole my beauty, and made me the most hated woman buried under Willie Brown's city hall. HERE'S A LEGAL RIDDLE: What's worse than the crime? Everybody knows it's the cover-up. But what's worse than a cover-up? That's when those in charge of those who looked the other way keep on climbing into ever-bigger seats of power. Specifically TWO women, former deputy city attorneys. First, it was Katherine Feinstein, in charge of the prosecution of my family 1998-2000, who (as well as being the daughter of California's sr. senator, Dianne Feinstein) went on to become a judge on the Superior Court of San Francisco, was installed on the State of California's judicial performance panel, and was recently appointed by Governor Jerry Brown to the Medical Board. Second woman was Kamala Harris, in charge of the persecution of what was left of my family by 2000-2001, the former mistress of then-mayor Willie Brown, who went on to be the twice-elected D.A. of San Francisco, the California Attorney General, and who is now running hard for Senator. And her sister is one of Hillary Clinton's policy advisors. Her brother-in-law was Obama's assistant General Attorney in charge of Civil Rights. Oxygen starting to thin out at this high altitude. 6/12 July 1999 we, the plaintiffs, Greg & Ramona Mayon, quietly settled out-of-court with I.A.F.F. local #798. However, from 10 July 1998 until 11 July 2001, the City Attorney's office blocked our God-given, Constitutional right-to-travel, to return to family & land with our remaining children, forcing us to remain in a place we hate - being conservatives in an ultra-liberal conclave - under court-order to remain here. Thus, we were forced to raise our children in an urban setting when we are country people, our children denied their right to know their grandparents and their native Louisiana. But we never lost physical custody of the children, only legal custody. Those three years were spent with the City Attorney's Office of San Francisco systematically destroying our reputation, using the dozen of lies supplied by Children Protective Services, are all documented within this manuscript. Most of the documents I used as the foundation for this manuscript (and case) are marked 'Confidential' and comes with their own penal code. I, the person being talked about, have no right to this paper. So it was a struggle to even get it. But if need be, I will argue before any judge that I am called to stand before that the City Attorney's office cracked the judicial firewall, not I, by using this so-called 'confidentiality clause' to commit crimes. Those with dirty hands cannot hide them behind a cloak of confidentiality. Throughout this time, like any ordinary citizen, I went to the SFPD, the FBI and every court that I could think of, I petitioned over & over, but they all folded their hands and did nothing. We have been turned down by nearly every lawyer in town and even had the displeasure of having the SF Bar Assoc. tell me that no one here has the resources to help you. Even the F.B.I. told me to let go and get on with life. As the old legal adage goes, the only successful defense for a slander/libel case is to be able to prove you are telling the truth. I have used hundreds of the City's own documents to do just that.
