About

A constituent of the vast baby boomer generation with a career which has been fortunate to know the ponderous corporate worlds, as well as the intimately pressurized, and invigorating entrepreneurial domains of high tech and venture capital, I have harvested my share of mistakes meandering through corridors of enterprise from Silicon Valley, to London and endless, colourful, sometimes praetorian points in between. The voyage has provided an abundance of fodder for a pen yielding to an inquisitive keyboard, a foraging mind, and a passionate spirit. Whether political or business or social or economic or personal, is it not all political? It is a privilege to write, and an even greater privilege to be read by anyone, and sometimes with the wind at my back the writing may occasionally be legible. I do not write to invite scorn, nor to invite respect, but if I get really lucky the writing can stimulate thinking. I also write for the very selfish purpose of animating my own processes, and engaging the best of what life offers. Above all, whether biting fire or swatting shadows, I am grateful to be gifted the freedom to write and publish whatever flows down to the keyboard. To all those who enabled this freedom, and to all those standing guard to preserve it, I am indebted.

Obama’s Kenyan Pipeline Hypocrisy

By 17 Comments 1,576 views

Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline two months ago in a strictly political move pretending that such a project would undercut America’s ‘leadership on climate change’.  His politically driven agenda ignored the upside that newly employed thousands would bring to a starving economy – in North America.  So why is Obama promoting, even arranging financing,… Read more »

Obama’s Disdain Of “Aging Angry White Men”

By 9 Comments 949 views

Seven years ago the MSM, in an extended display of pageantry reminiscent of a Louis XIV crowning, proclaimed to the world that America had entered a post-racial era in its election of Obama. The euphoria was short-lived. Evidence oozed out of the White House that it’s residents were not as evolved on the “racism” front as the media had pretended.

A New World Religion Is Consecrated – In Paris

By 18 Comments 2,096 views

Mark this day in your calendars.  A new religion has been formally consecrated with an Oval Office ball-spiking by the President, “this historic agreement is a tribute to American leadership,”.  The best part, for all the West’s socialist leaders who signed on to this sanctification, is that the agreement will not require approval from America’s Senate. … Read more »

Obama: “ISIS Is Contained.” Really?

By 31 Comments 1,533 views

Today’s football spiking from the ever-prescient and diligent Nation defender, President Obama — Jhihadi John has been vaporized. Along with three cheers for me, Obama claimed, “. . . we have contained them.” Whew, that must be really good news, after all, a President wouldn’t lie. Umm, oh, wait, what’s that noise? A bomb?

Clinton & Obama Benghazi Lies = Death and Devastation For Millions

By 20 Comments 1,122 views

The art of deception and the disintegration of political credibility have reached new levels of stench, which the middle class across America looks to overthrow through its demonstrated support of ‘outsiders’ in the current presidential race. I use the term, “middle class,” because the political and economic ruling class, the supreme 0.001% quite evidently doesn’t care.

The Obama Wrecking Ball – A Final Legacy Component

By 21 Comments 2,245 views

Through six and half years of confounding ignorance sprinkled with moments of resolute Nation destruction, America has endured an attack on it’s aspirations at the hands of a hateful Administration.   Heading into the final gasps of the Obama/Jarrett regime, the United States is about to be slammed with a potentially unremovable dagger in the heart… Read more »

Putin Goes To War . . . Real War . . . Again. Where Is Obama?

By 18 Comments 1,168 views

Obama today ran to the podium using a horrendous crime at a college in Oregon to rail against guns. As traumatic as these insane killings are, when Obama addressed the Nation, barely any information was available from Oregon. What was he up to? Was he throwing a shiny object, gun control, out there for the media to goggle at while, . . . while what?

Hollywood Hypocrisy

Liberal Hypocrisy Unleashed On All Women

By No Comments 858 views

Democrats have for years accused conservatives of conducting a war on women. Seeped in hypocrisy and oozing with deception, this assertion has been conducted with help from a witless media, and with assistance from the influential socialist enclave of Hollywood. I use the term “hollywood” inclusively here — herding into this corral, both the players and the products of the entertainment industry.
