Presidential Puppetry: Obama, Romney and Their Masters
Presidential Puppetry documents what many millions have long suspected: secretive elites guide our government leaders. The first book to analyze the Obama second term is also one of the first to examine the 2012 elections. Puppetry reveals scandals and shows why Congress, courts, and other watchdog institutions fail to report key facts about even the biggest news makers. Puppetry unfolds like a mystery extending over decades to the present. By the end, this compelling narrative documented with 1,200 endnotes shows hidden links between puppet masters, political leaders, spy agencies, and the economic austerity now being imposed on a hapless public. By exposing key secrets, it provides a roadmap for reform.

What They’re Saying About Puppetry:
Andrew Kreig uses his decades of investigative journalism talent to unmask the characters who have manipulated our democratic institutions. His formidable sources and sophisticated insights will enable elected officials, journalists, professors, and voters to evaluate the power interests at stake in the November 2012 elections. This is a frightening book that challenges all of us to act bravely. We must rouse ourselves to prevent a small number of wealthy, cynical men from usurping the power that rightfully belongs to the American citizen. He identifies these men, reveals their motives, shows us how they intended to accomplish their goals, and thus puts all of us on notice in this powerful exposé.
Lillian McEwen, author, D.C. Unmasked and Undressed
Andrew Kreig was for many years a celebrated reporter for the Hartford Courant and author of Spiked. He went on to lead with distinction the Wireless Communications Association and the Justice Integrity Project. These efforts help provide the intimate knowledge of the Washington, national, and global affairs required for such ambitious reporting.
Robert Ames Alden, former president of the National Press Club, co-founder and former president of the National Press Foundation, and former Washington Post World News editor
Thought provoking. Controversial. Presidential Puppetry is sure to raise lots of eyebrows. One of those books that inspires readers to look deep beneath the surface.
John Perkins, New York Times best-selling author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man and other books
Four decades ago, I described shocking abuses of the troops and taxpayers when I went on-the-record with Jack Anderson following my resignation from CIA service in Indochina during the Vietnam era. The situation is far worse now.
John Kelly, former news editor at NBC-TV and CBS-TV, and former CIA officer
Andrew Kreig’s keen investigative skills, outstanding authoring and established track record make his aptly titled, Presidential Puppetry, a ready source of vital information!
Ron Fisher, Captain, U.S. Navy (retired) and Chair, WeThePeople.now.org
Everybody should know that Andy Kreig is the man to see in Washington, DC to report the most important stories.
Dana Jill Simpson, progressive political analyst
One of the main reasons that the population of investigative reporters has not become extinct in Washington is because of the continued existence of Andrew Kreig. Most of the rest of the media population has undergone a subtle but systematic information terror campaign orchestrated by avaricious oligarchs that has hunted them down and expelled them from the media territory. All of us interested in the truth should be thankful that Andy’s talents continue to ensure that darkness of media manipulation is not the only characteristic that envelopes the issues in Washington and the world.
John Edward Hurley, Washington commentator, civic leader, and historian.
As I read key portions of Andrew Kreig’s book I had the feeling that its insights could make good leaders better, and could give bad ones serious concern that their ongoing injustices have been exposed in a way that demands remedial public action.
Clifford Arnebeck, public interest attorney who has challenged the integrity of the 2004 Ohio presidential election
This is clearly the worst of times in many decades, perhaps since the Civil War. The problem that a writer has is that you can write this, explain it, argue it, prove it. But, in the end, the reader and friends have to do something about it.
Sam Smith, Progressive Review publisher, DC Statehood movement co-founder, and author of books that include Shadows of Hope, Captive Capital, and Why Bother?
Buy and read this book. You’ll learn a lot more than you could have imagined, and you’ll start seeing the world, politics, and the justice system in a very different, clearer, smarter way. This book exposes the puppet masters who pull the strings of leading officials in both major U.S. parties, including Obama and Romney. Its entertaining, cutting-edge reporting provides the kind of information that we in the independent press believe vital to informed decision-making.
As a publisher of Andrew Kreig’s work, I confess to looking forward to publishing Andrew’s postings, because he is an investigative journalist combined with constitutional scholarship extraordinaire. This book takes his investigations to the next level, connecting the dots to unveil a big picture that is startling yet not surprising at all. The book goes into great depth, showing the connections behind the candidates. For example, I’ve written that Mitt Romney should be regarded as “Bishop Romney” because his experience in that LDS post is longer and more relevant to voters than his single term as governor. Kreig’s book amplifies that theme into a full historical context found nowhere else regarding Bishop Romney and his ascendancy within the revamped, tea party-oriented GOP. The book applies similar treatment to President Obama and many more U.S leaders.
The author has been a respected OpEd News contributor for years. So I am not surprised this book’s revelations have enduring and even global significance.

Spiked: How Chain Management Corrupted America’s Oldest Newspaper
Spiked shows how hidden imperatives and taboos corrupted America’s oldest newspaper after it was bought by one of the most respected media firms in the country, the Times Mirror Co. of Los Angeles.
Learn how the chain’s executives:
Repeatedly misled readers, government officials and Pulitzer Prize judges; Shamelessly inflamed minorities against police while its own reporter was finding irrefutable evidence that police did nothing wrong; Intimidated public officials so that they did not dare reveal the newspaper’s deceptions; Refused to report health hazards and abusive insurance company practices uncovered by experts and its own staff of reporters; Paid a reporter $50,000 in hush money.
As the chain twice transformed Connecticut’s dominant newspaper from top to bottom, a lavish advertising campaign kept telling readers, “We’re interested in what you think.”But behind the Madison Avenue glitz, a chilling real-life drama unfolded in secret.

What They’re Saying About Spiked:
“Anyone who has been a reporter will recognize the characters in this compelling book, whether or not they’ve worked for a chain. The arrogance, pretentiousness and downright cowardice so common to newspaper management appear here in bold relief.”
— John R. MacArthur, Publisher, Harper’s Magazine
“Rarely do we get such an honest look at the press… It’s simply a must read for anyone who cares about the implications of the corporate journalism sweeping the country.”

“Andrew Kreig’s case study has national significance.”
— Ralph Nader
“There’s no better description anywhere of the mutual back- scratching between newspaper managers and government officials; it’s a relationship far more insidious, in some ways, than the well- known symbiosis between reporters and government sources.”
— The Nation
“The specifics are fascinating…”
— St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“Spiked reads like the revelatory diary of a family member, steamy with allegations about deceptive investigative stories, fraudulent journalism prize applications, sexual pressure on staff members and hush money.”

— New London Day
“…immensely important book … provocative, exhaustively researched and absolutely refreshing.”
— Litchfield Enquirer
“…a remarkable book that should be required reading for anyoneconcerned about the current state of the media, especially newspapers, in Americatoday … The lack of oversight and ac- countability in the Pulitzer process is one of the real shockers that Kreig reveals. After reading Spiked you’ll never feet the same about the Pulitzer ….”
“…a SeymourHersh- style, meticulously researched attack on a powerful institution.”
— In These Times
