Rep. Paul Ryan as Romney' his vice presidential running mate. At an Atlas Society meeting celebrating Ayn Rand's life in 2005, Ryan said that "The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand", and "I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are, and what my beliefs are. It’s inspired me so much that it’s required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff.
American's elder statesman of finance, Alan Greenspan, has shaken the White House by declaring that the prime motive for the war in Iraq was oil. Alan Greenspan was Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board (FRB). He had served on the FRB since 1987 when he was appointed by President Reagan. Dr. Greenspan served on advisory boards for Presidents Nixon, Ford and Reagan.
Greenspan was born and educated in New York City, where he earned a BA, MA and, 27 years later in 1977, a PhD in economics. After earning his MA in 1950, Greenspan became a 20-year associate of famed philosopher Ayn Rand, author of books "The Virtue of Selfishness,""Atlas Shrugged" and more. Greenspan wrote for Rand’s newsletters and authored a chapter for a Rand book. As legend has it, Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan was once a member of Ayn Rand's 1960's salon. He was invited guest at Rand's apartment and apparently was close enough to have read her epic Atlas Shrugged as it came off her typewriter. Philip Rothschilds ordered one of his mistresses (Ayn Rand) to write an 1100-page book that would describe to all witches how they would take control of the World through the Illuminati: It's called Atlas Shrugged.

Few of my family friends are member of the Bohemian Club. My father was inviting to join but turn it down! President Herbert Hoover once called this club "the greatest men's party on Earth. "Anybody can be President of the United States, but very few can ever have any hope of becoming President of the Bohemian Club. While the club was formed in 1872 by a group of San Francisco journalists, the male-only club now bars journalists from membership to protect the group's privacy. Membership is coveted, and people routinely wait 10 or 15 years before gaining admittance. There are currently about 2,700 members. Bohemian Club members as former President George Bush, President George W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, retired Gen. Colin Powell, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Dow Chemical Chairman Frank Popoff.
Atherton, CA, the town that I moved near Stanford University, is one of the wealthiest towns in the United States! It has more police per person than any city or town in the United States! When the "Silver King of the Comstock Lode," James C. Flood(who was an Bohemian), used part of his reported eighteen million dollar fortune to purchase 600 acres off Middlefield Road, built Linden Towers, a 44-room, three story home. He adorned his 1878 estate house with towers, gables and cupolas and furnished with exotic The area now known as Lindenwood was developed between 1937-1955, after the death of Flood's son. Some of my neighbors were the Chairman of the board of such companies as , Kelly-Moore Paints, Memorex, Transamerican and Ampex.
