PCR Given Marquis Who’s Who Lifetime Achievement Award

PCR Given Marquis Who’s Who Lifetime Achievement Award
Dear friends, donors, readers:
If any of you have been discouraged by the claim of the shadowy organization, PropOrNot, that I am a Russian agent/dupe, or by the ADL’s claim that I am an anti-semite because I report Israel’s mistreatment of Palestinians, or by the claim that I am a conspiracy theorist because I am not taken in by the government’s lies, perk up. Marquis Who’s Who, America’s premier biographical reference work since 1899, has awarded me the Lifetime Achievement Award along with former Secretary of State Colin Powell, US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Apple CEO Tim Cook.
Little doubt some of you will not have a favorable view of the company in which Who’s Who has placed me. But keep in mind that Colin Powell publicly disavowed Bush and Cheney for sending him to tell what turned out to be lies to the UN, acknowledging that it was a blot on his career. Ginsburg, unlike many liberals, seems to believe in law based on precedent and except for the partially born defends civil liberties. Tim Cook is not Steve Jobs, but Apple continues to have good products, although like many other American products they are made abroad with cheap labor.
Think how much worse the company could have been. What if it were Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, Paul Wolfowitz, and Condi Rice? I searched Who’s Who’s Lifetime Achievement files online for each of those names and each search reported “nothing found.” Maybe Who’s Who will get to these achievers later, or maybe these aren’t the kind of achievements that Who’s Who wants to celebrate with its Lifetime Achievement Award. If any of this criminal gang reach similar recognition by Who’s Who, at least I can say I got there first prior to the sullying of the list.

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
