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.

The Fed Is Your Enemy, And The Elite Is In-Tow

By 5 Comments 686 views

Envision yourself on the Mount Everest ice field called the Khumbu icefall. You are with a group negotiating a crossing of the ice field on your way to the summit of Everest. You are almost at Camp One, having left base camp and are struggling through the most difficult acclimatization portion of your climb. You are part of a team, the first team up the mountain in this particular expedition, but in this endeavour, you feel alone. You are fighting nature’s forces, all of them — gravity, extreme cold, violent winds, blinding snow storms, thin oxygen, your own contracting blood vessels, cramps, and one step at a time you cross ladders, and you clip onto and off ropes that have been fixed in the ice. You worry each time you unclip your carabiner. Each might just be the moment when ice moves and disaster hits. And then it happens.


Clinton Cannot Be Sworn-In. Why?

By 7 Comments 1,423 views

The Hillary Clinton gems of dishonesty are endless, and in these last weeks of the Presidential campaign, flow faster than the mighty Mississippi swollen by snow melts in the Spring.  The deceptions are typical of the Clinton machine and although we often give a pass to mendacious tendencies of politicians, Clinton has been exposed to… Read more »


The Clinton, Fed and Globalist ASSAULT on America

By 4 Comments 993 views

As I watch the news on hurricane Matthew, I wonder when our self-esteemed President will spike the ball on climate change?  Global warming, he told us this week, caused the war in Syria and evidently the left deplores the fact  that hurricane Matthew was not worse than it was.  It seems that the new religion… Read more »

Obama Capitulates

Obama and Your FREEDOM: Obama Capitulates, Gives Away America’s Control Of The Internet’s Core

By 16 Comments 2,056 views

Today, no one seems to be paying attention to another Globalist-Obama American Freedom shrinking program. In breech of America’s constitution, Obama is handing off America’s control of the Internet. The MSM is asleep at the switch on this capitulation. A capitulation no-one is imposing on him — so why the rush? And yet, serial capitulator Obama will make this his final major act. It’s your freedom. You should care. We should all care. Why?


Dominant Obama/Clinton Memes – You Are Racists and Sexists

By 22 Comments 1,237 views

  In a continuation of her need to create division and hate within the Nation during Monday’s debate, Hillary Clinton blanketed all of America’s justice system and police departments as being infected with the mythical blight of racism.  Then she went on to claim that the affliction was systemic nationwide, so apparently we’re all racists. Clinton’s… Read more »


Libya – Clinton’s Biggest Albatross

By 14 Comments 1,305 views

Lest voters forget, the Clinton cheerleading attempts to make a name for herself in an anemic and paralyzed Administration all failed, and no attempt is more revealing of her naivety, and inability to make astute decisions, than the calamity we now know as Libya.  She championed the devastation of Africa’s most successful nation and  stable… Read more »


Wall Street Wealth Addiction and National Leadership . . . To Where?

By 3 Comments 1,084 views

This week we were treated to insight into extensive banking corruption as Wells Fargo fired thousands of employees for creating fictional client accounts and moving client money into such accounts, without permission.  The so-called “cross-selling” and opening of as many as 2,000,000 such accounts, some for non-existing clients, has resulted in the terminations of 5,300… Read more »


Clinton and Goldman Sachs — Why Such Duplicity?

By 5 Comments 904 views

We are witnessing the disintegration of globalist plans for supranational authority over us from some unknown distant locale. In Europe, with spasms of stupidity, they attempted to instil fear in the hearts of Brits to no avail.  Donald Trump’s support has come in large part to his pushback on globalism and its principles of trade… Read more »

Bankers, Oligarchs, and The Left’s Erosion of America’s foundation

By 8 Comments 1,256 views

Many conservatives are concerned that the future of the Supreme Court is paramount, however, IMHO, the most profound threat to the great American ‘Experiment’ rests in the threat to its economic foundation.   Understand that senior bankers and senior globalists are happy to see a socialist in power.  Socialists don’t build economies and don’t care… Read more »

Brazil’s Luiz “Lula” da Silva & Dilma Rousseff = Obama & Clinton

By 3 Comments 883 views

We witness Obama’s relentless attacks on Trump, even while standing beside a foreign leader, and the media cannot help itself. The first President on the way out the door to ever insinuate himself into a Presidential election not only gets a pass, he gets rationalizations from the MSM.  His desperation to prevent an unravelling of… Read more »
