I’m watching the “Genius” series on National Geographic tonight, and the subject is the biography of Albert Einstein. So far, in the script alone, Einstein has repeated at least 3 times, how he is a citizen of the world, and against Nationalism. The very same sentiments we have heard on the lips from some of our most popular people, Obama and the Pope to name two.
The script was written, as all scripts seem to be written nowadays, to promote the New World Order of no boundaries, open borders: we are all one on this planet, etc., and ANY kind of nationalism is bad.
Now I am watching Albert screw his mistress and then turn to her and say “Monogamy is not natural. Why can’t I love you and Elsa too?”
Somewhere Bill Clinton is smiling. Ron Howard, the producer, is also…smiling.
Yes, according to the way Einstein is presented in this series, he was a flaming liberal.
The ignorant will see this and not even put ‘his words’ into the context of the history that he lived in. But make no mistake…. this is pure propaganda with the message that any kind of patriotism for your country, is Nazism.
We get this ‘brainwashing’ in too many T.V. programs.
Just this afternoon, I was watching Neil deGrasse Tyson interview Norman Lear. Clearly the admiration for the man was off the charts, for the man who truly believes that his work on All in the Family, showed the white man’s raciest tendencies in the character of Archie Bunker.
As I listen to Norman Lear announce with almost unbelievably arrogance, that Tyson was put there at that moment by God, to interview HIM…putting La Gross far beneath what he considered Norman’s vast gifts to humanity, I couldn’t help but think of how Lear trashed Trump when he was running for office.
Lear supported Hillary and Obama. He hated Trump.
I had to laugh because clearly Norman Lear thinks that he helped America recognized how ignorant and racist they are, and then, if that’s true, then they elected a RICH Archie Bunker.
Hey Norman, what happened?
Obama, was elected by many people simply because of the color of his skin. If Norman Lear had any kind of brain, he would know, electing a President because of their skin color or their sex, is not exactly logical, and to do it just to make yourself feel better, is also, insane.
(I’m still listening to Einstein’s biography….and again the dialogue….
“You despise American exceptionalism.” Said another professor to Einstein….
“I also despise German nationalism.” said Einstein, for the 4th time.
Yes, we, the masses, are being programmed daily.
I have said many times before that the TV series “24” was so popular, that the black President on that series paved the way for Barack Obama.
I’ve not read ANYWHERE that somebody else thinks that, but here was Norman Lear and Tyson admitting it.
That fictional black president on “24” was SO honest. So, wise. So…perfect, that when Obama came along promising to unite America, millions of white people believed him, and voted for him.
I did notice that they put a lot of attention to Einstein being a ‘professor’ and left out the part that he worked as a patent examiner for many years. Being a “professor” is very progressive. Being a “Patent examiner” … not so much.
In fact, it was when he was a patent examiner that he wrote his “theory of relativity.”
But…let’s leave that little nasty fact out.
So, how do they do this? Brainwash the masses?
With sheer genius.
And the sheer genius of Albert Einstein gave us a nuclear world.
I think we could use a little less ‘genius’ and a lot more of common sense.
This week we have two very insidious examples of grand theft:
Let’s start with the ‘kids’ first. The teen (black) mob rule is back, I guess because Obama is back. He just got a contract for his first speech.
Robbing trains is now the new pastime for the bored youth of Oakland, CA. We can only suppose its because they stole so much from the malls, they had to close down. So hey….stores are closing, why not just rob the trains?
A recent string of robberies on BART trains took a frightening turn when dozens of juveniles swarmed an Oakland station over the weekend and commandeered a train car, forcing passengers to hand over bags and cell phones and leaving at least two with head injuries, witnesses told the transit agency
According to a police official, witnesses said 40 to 60 juveniles flooded the station, jumped the fare gates and rushed to the second-story train platform. Some of the robbers apparently held open the doors of a Dublin-bound train car while others streamed inside, confronting and robbing and in some cases beating riders.
The juveniles “committed multiple strong-arm robberies of bags and cell phones,” said a police summary prepared after the incident. “At least two victims suffered head/facial injuries requiring medical attention.”
Jesse James would be proud.
And then there’s the grand theft of Barack Obama, who got more money in one hour than most of his government workers make in a YEAR, and the private sector in 25 years:
Barack Obama has agreed to a $400,000 fee for speaking to a prominent Wall Street firm, according to Charlie Gasparino of the Fox Business Network.
Former president Obama will speak to a health care conference sponsored by Cantor Fitzgerald in September, Gasparino reports.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
Was it the young thugs of Oakland, who thought robbing and beating up mostly white people going to their jobs something fun to do?
Or was it Obama, who decided to give in the future, a probably pretty boring speech, which surely you could hear on YouTube for free… for an hour?
You know what?
The answer is right there in front of you.
Under whose Presidency did all this robbing, looting, and rioting, of (mostly black) youth spread like wildfire across the country?
Exactly. You win. That was pretty perfect.
I don’t remember ANY America President calling up another county’s Presidential candidate in order to affect their elections, do you? But that’s exactly what Obama did last week, in order to help the globalists leftist Emmanuel Macron become France’s President.
Explain to me why that is ANY different from Putin trying to affect our elections?
What? HE can do it because he’s Obama?
He can do it because he’s Obama, and he did it in front of the whole world?
Hey Putin! Next time you want to affect our elections, just call up the candidate and wish them luck.
Obama’s advisor said it wasn’t an endorsement. Well, logic says that if he didn’t call any of the other candidates, and he gave the guy permission to run it as an ad on TV, then Obama is lying again.
That’s a full-blown endorsement. That’s Obama saying…. “If you like your country, you can KEEP your country.”
Really, Obama still acts as if HE is President. Not only of America, but France. He talked as if he was talking to a state representative running for office.
What’s interesting is how Obama advises him not to slack off in the last days before the election, which was in political speech, a direct slap at Hillary Clinton. Obama insinuates that because she didn’t campaign much at the end, that’s why she lost.
He should have also advised him not to pass out, too.
Today, after the voting stopped in France… some polls said that Macron won by a slight margin, but other polls said Le Pen won, and by quite a lot.
Do you believe the polls?
Sound familiar? The bad news here, is that Macron does not carry the years of political baggage that the Clinton’s carried, and since Obama called, maybe that’s enough to make a few French vote for him, since the country leans liberal.
But then, it won’t be liberal much longer will it?
Today, on the American Sunday talk shows, you would have thought that the win of Le Pen was the start of the end of Europe. She would stop immigration and god forbid, get out of NATO!
France would have to defend itself, it would be the end of the world as we know it, according to all our wisest political hacks. The globalist think—Trump they can handle. Britain, seat of the NWO…they can fix…but evidently France, well, that’s just too much of a nightmare.
And a woman at that!
After watching Le Pen, I think she is a much more formidable foe than even Trump, to the globalists. Trump has Congress to stop him, but Le Pen? It’s a different government. And the EU needs France.
After the vote, the usual communist anarchists got out in full force and rioted in the French streets.
Macron is pretending to feel the pain of the French people, but by all accounts, he will keep things as they are, because, he’s been picked by the elites, and how do we know this?
Let’s keep defending our progressive values. Thank you for this discussion @BarackObama
And that’s the key word here: ‘progressive.’
I have faith in Le Pen. But, the French people have lived under socialism a lot longer than we have.
Let’s just hope their self survival instincts are as strong as the Americans and the Brits.
Here’s good news: President Trump is getting rid of a boatload of stupid regulations.
And here’s two I hope he throws at Paul Ryan: Metaphorically speaking of course:
From Freedom Manifesto by Steve Forbes and Elizabeth Ames:
In the state of Texas, for example every new computer repair technician is required to purchase a private investigator’s license. That’s right. An individual must either have a degree in criminal justice or complete a three-year apprenticeship with a licensed private investigator. To make matters worse, you can violate this ridiculous law if you are simply a regular citizen who has a computer repaired by someone who doesn’t have a PI license. Violators can be fined up to $4,000 and put in jail for a year.
(Anybody in Texas know if this is true?)
Washington, D.C. regulations actually make it illegal to ‘describe…any place or point of interest in the District to any person on a tour without a license. Violators risk being arrested and thrown in jail for up to three months.
Which explains why, in the year 2000, I asked a National Guard soldier on the street of D.C., in front of the Treasury Building, how to get to Independence Hall, he replied in the toughest voice he could muster:
‘There IS no such hall!”
I feel so much better now. And here I thought he just wanted to shoot me.
I used to study the rhythm of the Pygmies when I was a drummer. They have the MOST complicated rhythmic patterns on earth.
In the first video, you have to TRY to ignore the guy dancing, (I know, it’s hard, he’s got it down doesn’t he?) and listen carefully to the synchronicity of the singers rhythm, compared to the drummers. It sounds like they are separate, but they are NOT.
VERY hard to do. Very few musicians in the world can do this…but the pygmies do it with ease.
Now, listen to the second video. It’s very soothing, and more rehearsed. I like to say that this is more ‘Westernized’ and some would claim it’s BAKA evolution. Add the guitar and you almost have a latin feel.
So to our ears, it’s MUCH more pleasing and fun. It’s more arranged, and the guy even has a mike. If you have never heard the music of the BAKA pygmy’s then you should at least try it once. I also wonder….Is this where the Hawaiians got the idea for the Hula skirt?
And by the way…I can do that. Really. And no, I’m not showing you.
Enjoy! And by the way, if you think this is weird, you should hear their lullabies. Hippo’s would run.
Obama has left the world on edge. North Korea threatens nuclear attacks on the United States: Russia is growling, China is playing its usual stealth cards, and everyone is TRYING to ignore it, but, fact it: It’s not easy.
President Trump has taken a strong military stance once again for America, and in that respect, we remember Ronald Reagan and another former President who had a few words to say, about big…hands…I mean…sticks.
I found a few words from Teddy Roosevelt’s “Carry a big stick” speech.
Here it is:
IN 1914, Teddy Roosevelt published some thoughts on how America should react to the war going on in Europe: Germany had just invaded Belgian and they were overrun. The world watched Belgian then, as we watch the Middle East now.
Here are a few paragraphs that Teddy wrote from OUTLOOK,
September 23, 1913: “The World War: Its Tragedies and Its Lessons. “
Our first duty is to hold ourselves ready to do whatever the changing circumstances demand in order to protect our own interests in the present and in the future: although, for my own part, I desire to add to this statement the proviso that under no circumstances must we do anything dishonorable, especially toward unoffending weaker nations. Neutrality may be of prime necessity in order to preserve our own interests, to maintain peace in so much of the world as is not affected by the war, and to conserve our influence for helping toward the reestablishment of general peace when the time comes.
We can maintain our neutrality only by refusal to do anything to aid unoffending weak powers which are dragged into the gulf of bloodshed and misery through no fault of their own. Of course, it would be folly to jump into the gulf ourselves to no good purpose: and very probably nothing that we could have done would have helped Belgium. We have not the smallest responsibility for what has befallen her, and I am sure that the sympathy of this country for the suffering of the men, women, and children of Belgium is very real. (Nobody says: Syria.)
One of the main lessons to learn from this war is embodied in the homely proverb. “Speak softly and carry a big stick.”
A little good can come, (peace movements) but only on condition that nations remember that as yet arbitration treaties, neutrality treaties, treaties for the erection of independent tribunals, treaties of all kinds can do nothing to save a nation in great crises unless that nation is able to defend its own honor, its own vital interests.
Under existing conditions, universal and all-inclusive arbitration treaties have been utterly worthless, because where there is no power to compel nations to arbitrate, and where it is perfectly certain that some nations will pay no respect to such agreements unless they can be forced to do so, it is mere folly for others to trust to promises impossible of performance: and it is an act of positive bad faith to make these promise when it is certain that the nation making them would violate them.
That last paragraph reminds me of Obama’s deal with Iran.
President Trump is speaking loudly and trying to carry a big stick. So is Kim Jung Un. So is Vladimir Putin.
The only country who is speaking softly are the Chinese.
Somebody said on the radio last night that the United States attacked nations who do not have nuclear weapons. Iraq and Libya to name two.
And that is why other nations want them so badly, and why that little creep in North Korea is so scared.
Whatever…when it comes to N. Korea, I’m afraid it’s going to be ‘use a big stick’ and THEN speak softly.
And I’m not sure which leader will use it first. One thing for sure: they won’t be able to blame the next war on Julian Assange.
Sadly, we heard today that Bill O’Reilly got “fired” from Fox.
Well, gee…now I am sure I can get rid of my cable.
We are hearing that the reason he was fired, was that many women complained about how Bill came on ‘sexually’ to them, and advertisers were leaving.
Right. Sure. More like the globalists are getting MAD. They are now going after all conservatives any way they can.
Did he hurt them in any way? Drug them like Bill Cosby? It seems to me whatever he did was probably legal, but in this day and age, women can get a lot of money by saying they were “harassed” and evidently he paid out a lot to shut them up.
Bill O’Reilly was the King of Fox News. His opening commentary alone was worth turning into. My son never misses his show, and has all his books, and so, what’s left for the conservative millennials?
Listen to this great rant by Bill. He nailed it. Is it any wonder that the liberals hate him?
It truly was great. He was the best at what he did. And now they are smearing his name forever.
The ‘progressives’ HAVE to control the airways. Bill helped Trump get elected. Not to mention, he told the truth about so many things. I liked how he tried to teach vocabulary at the end of his show.
Rupert Murdoch’s sons, are taking over….and who knows what will happen to FOX. My sense is, FOX has been also been losing viewers since they attacked Trump just as much as the liberal stations…and people got tired of it. I certainly did.
Karl Rove got way too much airplay. And no doubt, the Bushes, who seem to have control over much of that station, didn’t like Bill either.
Anyway, Bill O’Reilly wins the Nobody’s Fool Award for having such a spectacular career….and for giving us his usual brilliant opinions and words of advice, night after night, after night.
Thanks for “Looking out for us” Mr. O’Reilly, all those years.
Take a nice vacation, you deserve it.
And don’t forget….We’ll be looking out now, for YOU!
Rush Limbaugh today was trying to make the point that the Democratic Party, according to some, is NOT the party of JFK, or even LBJ, it’s even more left than that. In fact, some might call the party treasonous, since nobody in it accepts the results of the election.
Rush even compares the democrats to Sharia. He draws their common themes: one MUST accept the ideology of the Sharia, and all people MUST accept the ideology of the progressives.
They do not honor the Constitution anymore. Or our laws. Or free speech.
But, I think, it’s even more than that. The liberals have more in common with communists. In fact, it’s become the Alinsky’s party. The man who learned all he knew from communists and the Mafia.
Some time ago, I started going to old book stores and collecting books on communism. Nobody even mentions that we have communists in our mists simply because Hollywood made damn sure that nobody ever question that subject again since Joseph McCarthy went on his “witch” hunt.
But Joseph was right. It’s been revealed that FDR had over 17 communists in his administration. Obama’s administration was filled with the Muslim brotherhood. Not exactly people that should be in charge of our country.
Not long ago, I wrote about how the communist’s ultimate goal was to take over one of the American parties, and I think that time has come.
Most all communist books explain that FIRST you have to go through socialism to get to communism. The fact that Bernie Sanders was more popular than Hillary Clinton should have proved just how far the communists have come with their plans.
Rush is right. Never before in our history has one party refused to obey the laws given out by the party that won, since the Civil War.
What is happening now is a ‘revolution.’ It’s a good old-fashion communist revolution, but they can’t call it that, can they now?
But America is not there yet. The radical left commies were voted out by the American people. Their policies rejected, thanks to President Trump.
The only way they can get back in power is what they are doing now: violence.
And haven’t we seen enough of that in the last 8 years encourage by Obama?
What word do you hear from every lip of every movie star and democratic progressive?
If you read the Communist Manifesto, and the arguments of Marx and Engels, you can see, how easily a people can be pushed into revolution. (That’s another blog.) All the democrats are inciting protests, daily.
From Communism by Emile B. Ader
Since capitalism refuses to concede that it is fatally ill, and since the dominate class is so firmly entranced in its position of power, the only course open to the proletariat to secure that which is its right is that of violence. Control of production and distribution can be wrested from the exploiters only by force. Marx is willing to agree that in some few instances democratic procedures may be able to obtain proletarian dominance, but as a rule, violence must be the prevailing motif.
So, Rush is right. The silent majority who went back to work after the election, do not quite know how to take all these violent ‘protests’ that we see on a monthly basis, except that we do know many of the protestors are being paid by…communists.
I don’t know how many times I’ve heard our politicians complain about how Obama refused to call ISIS radical Islam. The reason its important?
You must NAME your enemy.
Well, I’ve got a complaint: Nobody Wonders why they can’t call the democrats what they really are: “commies.”
And yes, they need to be stopped.
If we have to name radical Islam by it’s true name, then by God, let’s start calling the democrats the name they deserve.
And yes, we can ‘resist’ too.
Could one of the reasons that Donald Trump won the Presidency was because, Donald Trump is the master at building his ‘brand?”
Fortune 500 companies spend fortunes trademarking their names, building their ‘brands’ and protecting their reputations, and if there is one thing that President Trump did better than most any other business man, was make the brand of “Trump” known all over the world.
And he worked hard to make sure that brand came with excellence.
One thing you had to say about Trump’s hotels and casinos, they were perfect examples of perfection and wealth.
Now, think about the Clinton brand. By the time, Hillary ran for President, the brand of “Clinton” was pretty much worn out. When you thought of the brand “Clinton” you thought of Monika Lewinsky. When you thought of Hillary, you thought of a woman who was controlling, and not respected in any kind of way. She appeared most of the time as a ruthless and bitter woman.
You thought of…four men dead in Benghazi and, “What difference did it make?”
Trump protected and promoted his brand with his life. Even after his divorce from Ivanka, she made a pizza commercial with him, and that pretty much cleared up his, “He LEFT her for a younger woman!” image. It was really a stroke of genius.
Trump protected his brand. Hillary…did not.
Now, let’s take this a step further….and can we admit that sovereign nations are a brand? America has always had a strong brand of greatness throughout history. It has always been known as the greatest country in modern history.
It’s Constitution alone gives her that status. And how does a nation show it’s ‘brand’?
By, it’s flag.
Conservative Americans are proud of their flag. They know the price that was paid for the ideas it stands for. Millions of American have died protecting it.
Which is why, the progressives have been trying to destroy the very symbol of that great ‘brand’ called America.
Patriotism is now being attacked.
For years, our flag has been burned at every protest. Kids are not allowed to wear the flag on their tee-shirts at school. The list goes on and on about how the American flag is attacked every single day.
What is being attacked is not only the flag, but America’s people.
This is how they are trying to destroy America’s culture, so as to push it into the one world government. They HAVE to destroy the brand.
Obama’s bowing to every national leader in the world, sent a clear message that America was no longer ‘great’. Did you ever think that it was part of the “elites” plan? Not just Obama’s?
Before Obama left office, he talked a lot about “tribes.” How the world was divided into ‘tribes’ and that’s not a good thing.
But…here’s the good news. Breaking the brands of nations and molding them into a one world nation, might not be as easy as they think. People are just not going to go quietly into that good tyrannical night.
The elites want a one world government, nations without borders…. everybody living under one world run by them.
This is not a conspiracy anymore. It’s a fact. And yet…all nations have pride in the culture that their ancestors lived and died for, and why the hell shouldn’t they?
The French WANT to be French.
The Americans want to be Americans.
The Brits want to be Brits.
The Muslims want to be Muslims.
The ‘tribes’ of the world will always want to stay in their own tribe. For all the complaints that have heard from the blacks wanting to be treated equally here in America, in reality, they want to stay with their own “tribe.”
I was watching a National Geographic special tonight, and in it, they were talking about how war is a good thing, because, the conquered always got a new culture from the conquered.
The fact that millions die in war was…just accepted.
They also said that the renaissance actually came about because of the Muslims invading Europe. The Muslims brought TRUE knowledge to Europe.
(Too bad they didn’t keep some of it for themselves.)
I thought that was a stretch. They are trying to rewrite the “Muslims” into world history, so that we can all accept them as “equals.” Merkel thinks that her people should accept some of the wonderful ‘culture’ of the Muslims. (right.)
The elites think, that if they mix all the nations like the Tower of Babel, sooner or later, we will all get along. They look at humanity as a humongous Petri dish to be manipulated and bred like their royal horses.
And if you look at the last actions of President Trump’s actions, in Syria and with North Korea and Russia: if you look at it that he is the ‘brand’ master, and he is just trying to strengthen America’s ‘brand” … It makes perfect sense.
Yes, the good news is that America voted in a man who wanted to “Make America great again.”
The British people voted to become British again.
The French will vote (I hope) to become French again.
For these were the nations who supported Liberty.
This one world government does not.
The reality is, not all ‘brands’ are successful. So, we can be glad that we have a ‘brand’ master at the helm.
Maybe it’s not the ‘globalists’ that are controlling him like everyone is saying.
Maybe, it’s just President Trump doing what he knows how to do best:
Building a great brand.
Good Lord. It was Easter Sunday today. A day for little kids hiding eggs, family get together over ham and turkey…a day to enjoy.
It was raining here so we stayed home. My husband has asked me not to watch politics on his days off, and so, we enjoyed watching TV today: They had on reruns of Back to the Future, The Goonies, Episodes of Monk, and my personal favorite: The Ten Commandments with Charles Heston.
It was a typical Easter in America. Spring is all around…birds, flowers…people going to church…
Unless of course, you turn on the news which I did tonight and no, there was nothing typically Easter at all:
On the front page of Drudge, some black guy in Ohio killed an old man for no other reason than he felt like killing somebody. He posted it on Facebook. And then he admits he killed 13 other people because he “just snapped.” His girlfriend dumped him, so he calmly went out and shot people. And yet, he was talking to some friend on his cell phone and saying “I love you buddy.”
Complete disconnect here. Complete. (Hope your buddy loves you enough to visit you in jail.)
And while I was enjoying working in the garden outside this weekend, over 27 people were shot in Chicago. Mostly because it seems it’s just fun to drive around and shoot at people for no other reason than because it’s fun. Some were just walking down the sidewalk, or sitting on their porches.
Was Rahm Emanuel spending his Easter with the other democratic elites out in the Pacific Tropical islands with Obama, Michelle, Oprah, Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Springsteen? And I have to wonder, why the richest most famous democrats in the world are all gathered in the vast ocean?
Are they HIDING? Or is this the party where they will all lick their very big ego’s and wounds, and plan their future attacks on Trump?
Don’t you wonder what they are all cooking up? Whatever it is, you can be sure it wasn’t a solution to the blacks killing blacks in Chicago.
And how about this:
In Berkeley California, Trump supporters got in a major fight with Soros’s liberal idiots. Lots of people were hurt, and what exactly were the leftist fighting about? Trump? Really? The liberals found out that Trump supporters don’t believe in “Turn the Other Cheek.”
And I’m not a big fan of it either, in many cases.
And speaking of turning the other cheek…we all know, that if you attack President Trump:
He hits back.
Even though he won a victory against the showdown with North Korea, because the missiles Kim Jun un shot off, did not go well, why then is Russia and China sending THEIR warships to the area?
I also wonder—Has the world always been on the edge of “snapping?”
Sadly, yes. It happened many years ago when it snapped and crucified Jesus, didn’t it?
And every Easter we celebrate it, go figure.
Excuse me while I go and eat my chocolate bunny. I just don’t want to think about all this stuff anymore.
At least, not until, next Easter.
I just thought this was the sweetest thing.
Jimmy Stewart…telling a joke.
They don’t make movie stars like Jimmy Stewart anymore.
Class act. Great American.
If you have read me for a while, then you know I am a big fan of Thomas Edison. I think there should be a national holiday devoted to him, if simply for THIS:
But, like Steve Jobs, Edison was not only a great inventor, he was a shrewd businessman, and could sometimes be ruthless.
As many inventors find out, your ideas can be stolen with ease. And the big guys do it without remorse. It takes more than just genius to get an invention out into the world.
Sometimes, it takes a bit more.
For instance: What did Thomas Edison do to the great Nikolas Tesla? Read and find out:
From The 48 Laws of Power:
When Tesla met Edison in New York, the famous inventor hired him on the spot. Tesla worked eighteen hour days, finding ways to improve the primitive Edison dynamos. Finally, he offered to redesign them completely. To Edison this seemed a monumental task that could last year’s without paying off, but he told Tesla, “There’s fifty thousand dollars in it for you—if you can do it.” Tesla labored day and night on the project and after only a year he produced a greatly improved version of the dynamo, complete with automatic controls. He went to Edison to break the good news and receive his $50,000. Edison was pleased with the improvement, for which he and his company would take credit, but when it came to the issue of the money he told the young Serb, “Tesla, you don’t understand our American humor.” And offered a small raise instead.
Tesla’s obsession was to create an alternation current system (AC) of electricity. Edison believed in the direct current system (DC), and not only refused to support Tesla’s research but later did all he could to sabotage him. Tesla turned to the great Pittsburgh magnate George Westinghouse, who had started his own electricity company. Westinghouse completely funded Tesla’s research and offered him a generous royalty agreement on future profits. The AC system Tesla developed is still the standard today but after patents were filed in his name, other scientists came forward to take credit of the invention, claiming that they had laid the groundwork for him. His name was lost in the shuffle, and the public came to associate the invention with Westinghouse himself.
A year later, Westinghouse was caught in a takeover bid from J. P. Morgan, who made him rescind the generous royalty contract he has signed with Tesla. Westinghouse explained to the scientist that his company would not survive if it had to pay him his full royalties: He persuaded Tesla to accept a buyout of his patents of $216,000 a large sum, no doubt, but far less that then $12 million they were worth at that time. The financiers had divested Tesla of the riches, the patents, and essentially the credit for the greatest invention of his career.
The name of Marconi is forever linked with the invention of radio. But few know that in producing his invention, he broadcast a signal across the English Channel in 1899–Marconi made use of a patent Tesla had filed in 1897, and that his work depended on Tesla’s research. Once again Tesla received no money and no credit. Tesla invented an induction motor as well as the AC power system, and he is the real “father of radio.” Yet none of these discoveries bear his name. As an old man, he lived in poverty.
So, yes. Tesla remained a Nobody. Unwise to the ‘businesses’ of stealing ideas.
And I often wonder who was the REAL Tesla behind Bill Gates?
The world owes just as much to Nicolas Tesla as they do to Thomas Edison. But sometimes genius, just can’t get away from the lab…their minds won’t let them.
Nevertheless….there is one man who knows Tesla’s and won’t let anybody forget his name.
Thanks to Elton Musk, we now remember the name of Tesla. And we know that Elton Musk, follows the path of them both.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Ephesians ch. 6, v. 12
Are you like me, getting tired of the constant rattle of the news stations reporting on the many crimes that our politicians commit and yet NEVER get punished for?
Why is it, that every time a felony is committed by our top politicians, they never seem to go to jail? From this side of the peanut gallery, America is really no different whatsoever than China, Russia, or any other third-world country, and we should just stop saying we are.
While the crimes of those that rule us, make the front-page news for weeks on end, nothing is EVER done to them.
Other countries put their leaders in jail, why not us?
How can our Congress, and FBI, and CIA, and all the rest of our muti-billion-dollar apparatus even say that they work?
What makes Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Susan Rice, Bill Clinton, any different from Putin?
Putin has kept himself in power (committing murders and becoming a billionaire) just as long as the Clintons have. In fact, I don’t see much difference between the two, except when they speak.
Putin actually makes more sense.
The Clintons have committed so many felonies, (including deaths JUST as suspicious as Putin’s death list.) that it’s unbelievable that they get away with it.
Unbelievable. If you don’t agree, than you have been living in a bubble of denial.
(I can’t help ya.)
And let’s not forget the billions they have made by using the United States as their own personal piggy bank,
And yet, they STILL get great press. Tell, me, how are our news outlets any different from Russia’s? It was proven that Hillary RIGGED the democratic primary. She should have been punished for that…one of her lesser crimes.
Bill Clinton, is a serial rapist. Not to mention, the fact that he made 27 trips to “orgy island” where the young girls are there for the rich and famous, should be enough to put him in jail. Everybody knows it.
(I would have had him impeached for nuking up North Korea.)
And speaking of giving away nukes…Obama gave billions of dollars to Iran and ISIS. Treason is almost too good a word for that man. Obama’s whole administration committed so many felonies we need another floor at the Smithsonian to hold just the paper work on them all.
And let’s not forget Congress, who make personal millions off of secret deals every day. And then they excuse themselves from the laws they make. They barely work enough hours to even register on the Richter scale.
Last week it was proven that Susan Rice was having the Trump campaign and his people under surveillance. Everybody yelled about the crime that it was.
This week, it’s all been forgotten.
President George W. Bush bailed out the banks with OUR money, and hid the fact that it was 17 Saudi men who were involved with that attack on 9/11. and so why did we attack Iraq again? He spent trillions on that war, and we have nothing to show for it.
No problem. He paints now, isn’t it wonderful?
Until the politicians at the top start getting prosecuted and put in jail for their crimes, it’s obvious to even the bird on the wire that…
America is a no longer a republic. Or even a democracy.
It’s a plutocracy. And it seems to be entrenched for good.
And that’s why when I hear any politician or radio host start talking about the constitution, I shake my head in vain.
There IS no constitution anymore.
The only right we seem to have left is the right to bear arms.
And THAT will disappear with the next attack.
Do you really think President Trump is going to prevent it?
Since he seems to have gone all global on us, I really hope so, but then again…
The bird on the wire seems to have flown.
