Last night, U.S. Senator Kamala Harris appeared on the Stephen Colbert Show. She did NOT yet declare herself running for U.S. President in 2020 saying “She might run” but it’s clear that her new book was written to give her the foundation and start that most politicians need to get their first messages out to the national public.

From California where she is a well known entity, nationally, Senator Harris is not yet fully known. The the national public is just getting to know her.

  • Will she run?
  • Can she win?
  • What are her principles?
  • Where does she stand on the issues and with which groups of lobbies and other entities influence her decisions and career?
  • Will she be the first woman President of the United States?

Lots of questions and we’re about to find the answers.

This new book if from one of America’s most inspiring political leaders, It is 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.

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.

  1. The new Democratic party slogan: The wealth is in the wrong hands! Redistribution! Homes are in the wrong hands! Redistribution!
    Health care is in the wrong hands! Redistribution!
    Everything is in the wrong hands!Redistribute everything!
    White males are the problem! ************** them.
    There only problem is that there aren’t that many salt mines to send enemies of the state.

    The Anatomy Of Hillary Clinton’s $84 Million Money-Laundering Scheme…..As Fox News reported, we documented the Democratic establishment “us[ing] state chapters as straw men to circumvent campaign donation limits and launder(ing) the money back to her campaign.” The 101-page complaint focused on the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) — the $500 million joint fundraising committee between the Clinton campaign, DNC, and dozens of state parties — which did exactly that the Supreme Court declared would still be illegal. HVF solicited six-figure donations from major donors, including Calvin Klein and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, and routed them through state parties en route to the Clinton campaign. Roughly $84 million may have been laundered in what might be the single largest campaign finance scandal in U.S. history.

  3. https://heightline.com/kamala-harris-husband-children/ It seem that Kamala was mostly raised in Canada. Her husband as manager at Venable was possibly involved in this??? Each of the three judges on the appellate panel seemed to doubt that Venable should be shielded from answering for the actions of David Meyer, then a lawyer in the firm’s Los Angeles office https://nypost.com/2015/12/16/washington-law-firm-accused-of-helping-11m-facebook-fraudster/ On some other doubtful sites was some crowing that Kamala is the female Obama…. if so we should check that she is not a creation of the CIA like Obama… See book Dreams from my Real Father Joel Gilbert…. Stanley Ann Dunham was professionally connected to Tim Geithner’s father, Peter. His Grandmother managed the CIA payroll in SE Asia???? Anyway is Kamla actually another creation of the CIA/Deep State?

  4. The only people pushing the Kamala Harris for prseident narrative are democrat party insiders and their millionaire donors.

  5. https://pagesix.com/2017/07/15/kamala-harris-meets-with-democratic-elite-in-hamptons/ he California senator is being fêted in Bridgehampton on Saturday at the home of MWWPR guru Michael Kempner, a staunch Clinton supporter who was one of her national-finance co-chairs and a led fund-raiser for her 2008 bid for the presidency. He was also listed as one of the top “bundlers” for Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, having raised $3 million. Guests there to greet Harris are expected to include Margo Alexander, a member of Clinton’s inner circle; Dennis Mehiel, a Democratic donor who is the chairman of the Battery Park City Authority, even though he lives between a sprawling Westchester estate and an Upper East Side pad; designer Steven Gambrel and Democratic National Committee member Robert Zimmerman.
    Washington lobbyist Liz Robbins is also hosting a separate Hamptons lunch for Harris. Search engine Michael Kempner Podesta lots of ties to the Podesta(s)

  6. Well…. All you have to do is search engine Kamala Harris AIPAC and see that she is chummy with BiBi… I do not think Kamala is going to tell us the truth that Israel and our own government both Democrat and Republican did 9/11
