I still have to write the letter, so here is something for Wilmingtonians, especially, to CONTEMPLATE until I finish it and post it below:
February 12, 2018
Hi Steve – with Special Salutations also to Debbie, and your mother, Lorraine, whom I only met once!!!
My own mother, Ruth Anne (Meyer) Kenan, is now 95 and living in Raleigh, NC, and is of sound mind, if failing body – but still able to drive to church and bridge club. I had one HELL of a time with my mother over many years, but we are again getting along great in recent months.
Not only does Lucas TOWER Fretwell tower over YOU – the name from Debbie’s family – but he is offering MLK, Jr. a DRINK!!! In 1990, I was in a short snail-mail correspondence with Coretta Scott King, who was from – and hid there after her husband’s assassination – West Chester, PA, where we lived from two weeks before JFK’s assassination until summer of 1968, when we moved to Columbus, OH to live across the street from Coach Lou Holtz – my parents’ TOP POLITICAL ALLY, then, while has was assistant to the great Woody Hayes, another Denison grad. This was while we had Swastikas on our dinner plates, still.
Also, members of my Kenan Family – the Stewards of the Confederacy even today – RAN Politics in Selma, AL when Dr. King crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge.
Little-known about my family – and pointed out to me by a young female Canadian Narco-Trafficker in Puerto Vallarta who was holding me hostage with OTHER CIA/Hillary Clinton State Department/Kenan Family/Episcopal Church USA Drug Mafia (one of five times they held me hostage in 2010), is that she found in the 1999 Mercer University Press update to the book The Kenan Family (the original from 1967 is searchable online now, https://archive.org/details/kenanfamilysomea00regi, and shows my wrong middle name in the index, and claims I would get a basketball scholarship to Duke – I not knowing then that the Kenan Charities are now the largest private support of University Education in the world for many decades.
That sentence got away from me, but SHE found browsing that book, that in December 1973, when the American Psychiatric Association REMOVED Homosexuality from their list of Mental Illnesses, both the shrink who HEADED that org and the one who collated all the studies to make a decision were BLOOD KENANS, but of different surnames.
The Kenan Family is RIDDLED with gay and bi MEN, and recently I got in touch with Massachusetts Congressman Joe Kennedy III and asked him WHY the Kennedys ADMIT to NOT A SINGLE GAY MALE, and got the reply that they PROTECT GAY RIGHTS. But that TURKEY gave the Democratic response to Trump’s State of the Union Address, proving he can SPEACHIFY with the best, but as the MOST BEHOLDEN of all Democrats in Congress to the Pharmaceutical Industry, I say FLUSH JOE KENNEDY down the toilet (with Hillary Clinton)!!!
I was for Bernie and would have chosen Gov. Kasich second – he the only adult in the Republican field.
My younger sister runs Teva Pharmaceuticals’ DRUG TRIALS tabulations for Latin America – Teva an Israeli firm – and my New Hanover County is SUING Teva and four other Opioid Manufacturers for DELIBERATELY breaking US and North Carolina Laws and PROMOTING unnecessary Opioid consumption, Wilmington not only having the fifth highest alcohol consumption of all cities in the USA, but is ALSO the HIGHEST per capita consumption -- as well as trafficking -- of Heroin and Opioids in ALL of the USA – thanks to my parents, the wealthy distant-cousin Kenans in Chapel Hill who put Trump into power, and the Christian Churches – especially Episcopal/Anglican, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic, and Evangelical Denominations.
Like all people, Kenans have their good and their bad, but the Family Motto from our crest, is “Vive ut Vivas”, which means “Live Life to the FULLEST!!!” You might not know that in 1974 or 75, the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust gave Denison at least a million dollars toward the Endowment in a major campaign – the second largest donation Denison had received to that time. ($4,979,591.84 in 2017 dollars)
Today, I work with the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke University: http://kenan.ethics.duke.edu/, and another Kenan Charitable Org (largest private NGO in the world, supposedly), is Kenan Institute Asia: https://www.kenan-asia.org/?gclid=CjwKCAiAk4XUBRB5EiwAHBLUMX4iV-b1OhxoRe7DbxNM1hdLyb2HrkeayL0nDQ6hoRZaZ0oBilPlPxoCwWoQAvD_BwE.
Unlike my wealthy relatives, ALL my wealth and my Art collection were REMOVED from me by my immediate family, my employer of twenty years (1990 – 2010), the CIA, and Republican Party of Georgia when I first blogged in 2010, that in 1990, two top Jewish Business Leaders in Atlanta first told me my parents were LITERALLY the top NAZIS in the USA. My blogging of that got Rob Reiner’s first cousin Jonathan to make me an “Honorary Jew”, and today, I am in close contact with Rob Reiner and David Frum of https://investigaterussia.org/.
Funny that Rex Tillerson -- who is OWNED by my wealthy relatives who have controlled Standard Oil, now Exxon-Mobil, since 1913 when Henry Flagler left his last wife, Mary Lily Kenan, his entire estate, including more S.O. stock than J.D. Rockefeller ever owned – with XOM, certain Kenans, the CIA, and Hillary Clinton State Department put Enrique Pena Nieto into the Mexican Presidency – and TODAY ONLY Pena Nieto is LESS popular as an elected head of state than Donald Trump – LOL!!!
I got this directly from a recently retired Exxon-Mobil exec I met in a Carl’s Jr. across the street from Costco in Puerto Vallarta, January 2015 – not long before I returned to the States.
There is so much I could write, but that is why I have my blog that is now well on its way to 2,000,000 REGISTERED hits, and it gets emailed to my 220+ Political Contacts as well. THIS Letter will be posted on my blog here: http://theweathercontinues.blogspot.com/2018/02/my-birthday-greetings-to-my-college.html.
I don’t want to type so long that no modern person has the attention span to read it – and I just got a note from my best high school friend, Robert “Bob” Jones, that he is EAGERLY waiting to read this as soon as I get it posted.
The BEST memory I have of you and Debbie from college, is the time I learned that as I entered The Kismet gay disco in Columbus – OUT THE BACK ran THREE of Denison’s nine Fraternity Presidents – including the one who had been my roommate for a month in London and Paris on a Denison January Term trip visiting Art Museums and Cathedrals. I had told him up front that I was gay, but he never returned the favor, and at Graduation Ceremonies, I witnessed his mother hand him SEVERAL PILLS that he quickly washed down at a drinking fountain (his family owned a huge Plumbing Contractor Corporation around York, PA).
Anyway, you and I LAUGHED OUR BUTTS OFF over it – as did Debbie – but I don’t think she smoked marijuana like we did, then, anyway. Since 2009 – and now on doctor’s orders – I smoke pot again to relax from the tensions of my Political Life. Less and less, only late at night, as it interferes with my WRITING (although it HELPS my editing).
Partly, I am getting back in touch with you more deeply now, because California people are again so prominent in my life – not just Rob Reiner and Mr. Frum, but also Jeanne Wolf, the Entertainment Journalist whom I’ve known since 1982, see about halfway down here: http://laterdaysoftennesseewilliams.blogspot.com/2013/10/chapter-24-public-reading.html.
And in the last week or so, I have been back in direct contact with the Los Angeles County Detectives, since I have privileged info on how Natalie Wood was murdered: http://theweathercontinues.blogspot.com/2018/02/after-calling-lt-john-corina-of-los.html, and also Dean Hansell, who co-founded the first Gay Group at Denison with me in 1972. And ACTUALLY, Dean, whom I knew and was then President of Denison Community Association, only SET UP for a meeting of gay Denisonians, and I, James Culver Anderson (who lived next to you and me in the single in our dorm), and my boyfriend Bert Bennett III, attended and I took charge and we were soon on WDUB in an interview program of what it was like to be gay at Denison.
BTW: James Anderson – having endured about two dozen shock treatments because his Christian Family wanted to cure his homosexuality, now lives in Seattle but REFUSES to communicate with Denison people, and Bert Bennett is a married-with-children FAT SLOB Psychologist in Winston-Salem, NC, where his family owns one of the LARGEST Shell Oil Distributorships, Quality Oil.
We got not a SINGLE bit of flak from anyone for our live, 90 minute radio call-in show – and EVERYONE knew who we were, since we all had such distinctive voices on a campus of 2,100 then.
Dean went on to co-found GLAAD, be Asst. Attorney General of Illinois, a Police Commissioner of Los Angeles -- under Mayor Riordan – NOT the super-crooked Villaraigosa who helped sell Barack Obama to Big Banks and Wall Street also with help of Narco-Trafficker Rahm Emanuel and
Joe Biden CORRECTION: Al Gore, who
represented BILL Clinton – effectively shutting his wife Hillary OUT before the
Primaries even began in 2008.
This was all published on Huffington Post (like they used to publish about Obama’s lover Reggie Love entering Air Force One by back door to travel with “Barry Bam-Bam” whenever Michelle stayed home – and I have friends who have seen Obama and Emanuel in a Chicago gay bathhouse more than once – when Obama was an Illinois State Senator. Michelle always knew – and played her role EXCELLENTLY – as Jesse Jackson and Rev. Jeremiah Wright (who ran or maybe runs a Call Boy Service ONLY for married, black TOP Christians) – and the IDIOTIC REPUBLICANS claimed Wright was a MUSLIM like they claimed Obama was!!!
SURELY, God hates INVERTED Christians as much as they hate God, no???
But a FEW of them follow Jesus’s actual Teachings, and I have no problem with them.
As I told your young female employee who answered the phone this morning, I will send this to you via Facebook Messenger – but try to post it to your Timeline, in case anyone from Denison that we both know wants to read it. I’ll mail a physical copy to Fretwell’s Ethan Allen. And while I’m at it, that woman did SUCH A GOOD JOB FOR YOU on the phone with me, I promised her I would ask you to give her a RAISE (I would suggest DOUBLING her pay, but you know I am into both hyperbole and understatement – as a matter of style).
So, I hope your Birthday is – or was – FABULOUS, and that you will pass my greetings to both Debbie and your Mom, and salutations to your entire family, as well!!!
