Just when you figured Palo Alto could not get any more hallucinogenic over itself, the Accel Partners partner dives into the deep end of crazy and creates PutinTrump.org. If Sigmund Freud were only alive today, his study of Democratic “wish fulfillments” would rock the psychotherapy and political worlds.
Now Millennials with nothing better to do than finger their smart phones and giggle to themselves, can uncover deep algorithmic bliss over what Trump is saying about Putin! Glaser, who founded Real Networks, has weighed into the Hillary Clinton mud puddle of psychotic politicking with both feet.
Vowing to uncover hidden Trump-Putin truths, this new Bob Woodward of PUMPGate has vowed to find the Deep Throat or Manchurian Candidate of Election 2016! For those out there who believe these uber-socialists are nuts, you are probably right. The Accel Partners partner and Real Player rocket scientist was cited by CNBC as saying:
"You have this unprecedented alliance between a presidential candidate the leader of Russia and it's not being talked about as a whole."
Not being talked about? For a few days now this is all Clinton supporters know! Maybe it’s time we investigate Glaser for his role in the cohesive Silicon Valley effort to get Hillary in office?
Glaser, who’s main claim to fame is running off partner Tony Fadel, so that the latter could help Apple make trillions, must need attention. For readers unaware, if San Francisco has an abundance of anything, it’s narcissist whackos convinced the universe is talking to them (I have the emails from many to prove this).
And the PutinTrump.org seems like a perfect attention getter. The website landing page’s dogma opens the gaping hole of the world’s technology capital (AKA Alice in Wonderland):
“As the U.S. presidential election enters the home stretch, we see overwhelming evidence that a Donald Trump presidency would put U.S. national security interests at risk.”
Let this sink in. Take it, smell it, feel it – BAM! You got it right?
Glaser either A – needs attention, and/or B – has no qualms whatsoever over spinning a lie and sensationalism into profit. The site is off the scale, bombastic, tabloid-like, and a clear Clinton bent endeavor to appeal to the sheeple who rave about Hillary.
I was a technology writer and analyst tens years, before branding off into geo-politics and PR. The reader here needs to understand the nature of these “Valley of the Dolls” capitalists though, so here is more on their rise to fame.
Money, and Plenty of It, and Tiki Parties
Glaser, like so any other Silicon Valley pseudo-geniuses out there, came to prominence in a time when a bonfire of $ billions was being lighted in California’s frenzied Web 2.0 days. After the so-called “dotcom era” trashed billions lost overnight, a resurgent technology boom period was ushered in and branded the “second coming” by “visionaries” like Tim O'Reilly and old colleagues of mine like Mike Arrington and Pete Cashmore. It is no coincidence that O’Reilly now sits alongside Glaser at the Electronic Frontier Foundation. But Alice in Wonderland cadres of profiteers most people know all too well.
Web 2.0 saw vast investments funneled into Palo Alto and Menlo Park, and writers like me covered the whole amazing frenzy on myriad tech blogs like Tech Crunch, Mashable, ReadWriteWeb, and a dozen more. Analyzing, watching from close up, I recall seeing rivers of money wasted, and hyperbole doped to all time highs. It was in this circus of excess and eccentricity that a few successes stood for some a mire of stunningly idiotic failures.
Apple, Google, Microsoft and Facebook surfaced, on the wreckage of 10,000 bad ideas, that were PR hyped for bad entrepreneurs. The short version of it all would read something like this quote from the legendary Silicon Valley stock expert Philip Fisher and Motorola investor, who said:
"The stock market is filled with individuals who know the price of everything, but the value of nothing.”
Glaser and his associates, the things they are tied to, actually merit more scrutiny then a Trump-Putin world takeover allegation. Accel Partners has made 943 investments in 522 companies. The Palo Alto venture firm has raised in excess of $19.5 billion since its inception, and has spun off 30 IPOs, the most notable being Facebook.
To find out what Rob Glaser is all about, or any of his partners at Accel, all anyone has to do is micro-analyze these IPOs to find a business model beneath. Yes there are massive successes, but “hedging” losers is part of the business as well.
For every Facebook success they spurred, there are 5 dogs that just won’t run – investment traps that essentially milk money out of the idiot speculator. Let this sink in…. buy into what I am suggesting…. then understand how Wall Street and the tech business runs. Share price and perceived value run America. What, you think Google actually makes any money? Shares, it’s all about shares folks. Shares of air is a part of this business, but associations and intricate business control is even more crucial.
Sigmund Freud and the “Fix”
Further examination of Accel investments tells us the investing elite out there support a matrix of Silicon Valley business into everything from military industrial complex hardware and NSA spying tools, to corporate security and innovators in photonic integration technology using in virtually all advanced networks around the world. It’s these connections that are important to understand. Significantly, the Accel tentacles stretch forth into the final realms where super-capitalism hopes to conquer. From social networks in China, real estate, accounting for small businesses, and so much more fall within the clutches of an elite group investing for the elites in controlling markets.
Take one investment of Accel, CrowdStrike is the same security company that proclaimed Vladimir Putin himself hacked the DNC! Collusion, a cadre of leftist billionaires who’ll do anything to perpetuate their windfall in the Obama years, this is the name of the game in America.
Just focusing on CrowdStrike we see a $156 million investment by Accel, Google, Rackspace, and Warburg Pincus. So the question arises, “Does 156 million dollars buy allegiance these days?” Better yet, “What goals do investors seeking in those indebted to them?” Turning back to Glaser, his Twitter follows list reads like a Clinton Foundation master donor list.
From writer Steven Levy to his Obama Victory Fund efforts, the man investigating Putin and Trump is more a threat to our national interests than ISIL (Daesh in Arabic) in my view. If Putin were to absolutely take over the US, things could not be worse than these Disneyland characters running the show any longer. Obama helped create almost 2,000 billionaires while Detroit crumbled, and Hillary will surely create twice that many along with a new Dust Bowl.
Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin seem pretty normal to me, pretty easy to figure out. It’s these radical Clinton evangelists that we may need a Sigmund Freud or Carl Jung to figure out. These people make me fearful, the big “fix” that seems eminent is scary. What about you, what’s your take?
