Scott McClellan was one of a few Bush loyalists from Texas who became part of his inner circle of trusted advisers, and remained so during one of the most challenging and contentious periods of recent history. Drawn to Bush by his commitment to compassionate conservatism and strong bipartisan leadership, McClellan served the president for more than seven years, and witnessed day-to-day exactly how the presidency veered off course. In this refreshingly clear-eyed book, written with no agenda other than to record his experiences and insights for the benefit of history, McClellan provides unique perspective on what happened and why it happened the way it did, including the Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina, Washington's bitter partisanship, and two hotly contested presidential campaigns. He gives readers a candid look into who George W. Bush is and what he believes, and into the personalities, strengths, and liabilities of his top aides. Finally, McClellan looks to the future, exploring the lessons this presidency offers the American people as we prepare to elect a new leader.

In jüngerer Zeit ist eine Zunahme der medialen Berichterstattung über Skandale zu beobachten. Die begleitenden zahlreichen, teilweise aufgeheizten Debatten um die Art und Weise der medialen Skandalberichterstattung – erinnert sei etwa an die Fälle Strauss-Kahn, Wulff, Kachelmann oder Hoeneß – haben gezeigt, dass Skandale ein gesellschaftlich virulentes, jedoch nicht einfach zu greifendes Phänomen darstellen. Skandalberichterstattung kann sich einerseits als gesellschaftlich hochrelevant erweisen, als mit ihr auf Missstände, Werte- oder Normverletzungen aufmerksam gemacht und Diskurse über grundlegende Werte und Normen in Gang gesetzt werden können. Andererseits kann eine Häufung von Skandalberichten sowie eine Zuspitzung und Personalisierung in der journalistischen Aufbereitung von Skandalen gleichfalls zu unerwünschten Auswirkungen auf Einzelpersonen (wie zum Beispiel nicht gerechtfertigte Reputationsschäden) und möglicherweise auch zu negativen gesellschaftlichen Effekten (wie zum Beispiel Vertrauensverluste in die Arbeit von Medien, Politik und anderer gesellschaftliche Teilbereiche) führen. Vor diesem Hintergrund werden im vorliegenden Themenband grundlegende Aspekte der Thematik sowie aktuelle Studien und Sichtaufweisen auf die Thematik aus kommunikationswissenschaftlicher Perspektive vorgestellt. Der Band setzt seinen Schwerpunkt auf die bisher in der Forschung eher wenig beachteten Effekte von Skandalberichterstattung sowie deren Gründe und Genese.

This book is all about Caliphate and Islam which was destroyed in 1914 through first illegal invasion of Iraq and Caliphate was abolished on 29th October, 1923 by Ataturk, a secret Jew according to Joachim Prinz as he mentioned in his famous book, The Secret Jews (pg 122). Largest Muslims which more than total Arab Muslims live in Indonesia and Malaysia and part of Philippine where no Muslim or Arab invader invaded and the fact is Europeans and USA invaded this countries. Sufis from Iran and Arab world spread Islam in these countries. Muslims were in America before arrival of Europeans. October 21, 1492, Columbus admitted in his papers that while his ship was sailing near Gibara on the northeast coast of Cuba, he saw a Mosque on the top of a beautiful mountain. Ruins of Mosques and minarets with inscriptions of Qur'anic verses have been discovered in Cuba, Mexico, Texas, and Nevada. In 1492, Columbus had two captains of Muslim origin during his first voyage, one named Martin Alonso Pinzon the captain of the Pinta, and his brother Vicente Yanex Pinzon the captain of the Nina. They were wealthy expert ship outfitters who helped organize Columbus' expedition and repaired the flagship Santa Maria. The Pinzon family was related to Abuzayan Muhammad III, the Moroccan Sultan of the Marinid Dynasty (1196-1465).[i] There is European Union for Europeans and same Europeans or Anglo Saxons who illegally occupied 4 continents of North America, South America, Australia and Antarctica and still today they are illegally occupying those 4 continents and sending powerful Navy, Air Force, Arm Force to Bahrain, Dhahrain, Iraq, Afghanistan and Persian Gulf and many part of this world. But why Europeans or Anglo Saxons are afraid of Caliphate on the model of European Union or USA? Has ever Hitler invaded 4 continents except his own Europe? The answer is no. So all must see their own face in the mirror before blaming any race or religion or individual. It has become every day habit to blame Islam and Muslims where as no Arab or Muslim invader ever went to Indonesia or Malaysia where largest Muslim group live and Indonesia is the Largest Muslim country though so called Europeans Christians invaded both Indonesia and Malaysia. So why has it become every day habit to blame Caliphate, Muslims and Arab? Have you ever heard that Muslim version of FBI or MI5 ever questioned Europeans in India or Arab World when Muslims were sole power in earth for over a thousand years and when Muslim rulers allowed Europeans to be immigrants in land of Caliphate or India for that greatness those Europeans became spies and occupied Muslim land? So why FBI or MI5 dare to harass Muslims? Why there is such cowardly behavior and attitude of FBI, MI5 or CIA and MI6 and other Western agencies? The way present genocide is going in Iraq, Afghanistan and it already started in northern Pakistan besides the threat of genocide against Iran with same pretext of WMD in Iraq, we must be terrified. There was no limit of lies and deception in human history. There is no limit of genocide in human history too. During last European War over 70 million people, the majority of them civilians, were killed, making it the deadliest conflict in human history. Muslims even did not kill 70 millions during last 1400 years.

The Encyclopedia of Deception examines lying from multiple perspectives drawn from the disciplines of social psychology, sociology, history, business, political science, cultural anthropology, moral philosophy, theology, law, family studies, evolutionary biology, philosophy, and more. From the “little white lie,” to lying on a resume, to the grandiose lies of presidents, this two-volume reference explores the phenomenon of lying in a multidisciplinary context to elucidate this common aspect of our daily lives. Not only a cultural phenomenon historically, lying is a frequent occurrence in our everyday lives. Research shows that we are likely to lie or intentionally deceive others several times a day or in one out of every four conversations that lasts more than 10 minutes. Key Features: More than 360 authored by key figures in the field are organized A-to-Z in two volumes, which are available in both print and electronic formats. Entries are written in a clear and accessible style that invites readers to explore and reflect on the use of lying and self-deception. Each article concludes with cross references to related entries and further readings. This academic, multi-author reference work will serve as a general, non-technical resource for students and researchers within social and behavioral science programs who seek to better understand the historical role of lying and how it is employed in modern society.

This book argues that we can learn a great deal about leadership from the experiences of eight US presidents who have served in the White House since Watergate. The eight presidents considered here differed widely in their family backgrounds, wealth, education, age, prior political experiences, and motivations for power. But they all made the same promise—to “faithfully execute the Office of President of the US and ... preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States”—and they all faced considerable challenges in fulfilling that promise. While all eight presidents had policy successes and failures, the author argues that we gain real insight on their leadership acumen by analyzing the deeper structures of leadership effectiveness that all leaders need to address: vision, execution, management, and decision-making. The book assesses the performance of each president along these four dimensions of leadership and extends lessons learned to leaders in other sectors.
