The Truth About Donald Trump’s Right-Hand Man

Steve Bannon has a great capacity for looking like he just got out of jail on bail after a night in the slammer for having been arrested “drunk, disorderly and a public nuisance.”  He and Michael Moore would be locked in a tie for “The Most Repulsive Looking Man in Politics” if such a competition were held.  Given Bannon’s great skills, it is obvious Mr. Trump has a taste for talent and cares not a whit about looks, decorum or social skills as Mr. Bannon has a long list of very vocal detractors.

It could be that young Democrats are upset Steve is crabbing their act at looking like a walking train wreck or pigpen.  They do it to look pathetic and garner sympathy, while Steve just doesn’t give a fig.  He made millions in equities trading and apparently got to the point where could ignore GQ.  If Steve makes the “Disaster Look” fashionable the lefties are going to have to break out in three-piece suits! (Gasp)

Bannon is accused by the Democrats of having done everything from farting in church, having dandruff, social diseases and body odors, kicking his dog and being anti-Semitic because his third ex-wife said he “hated Jews” in divorce filings.  To that we only say anyone who believes anything a divorcing woman says about her husband is terminally gullible or stupid or both.  My second wife in her filings declared she was afraid of me “…because he’s from outer space!”  In Santa Barbara County Domestic Relations Court penis possession is a hanging crime so that accusation stuck and probably cost me hundreds of thousands of Dollars.  Meanwhile back at Steve Bannon:

Steve is famous for interesting quotes the Democrat propagandists use as weapons:  “Birth control makes women unattractive and crazy.”  Talk about throwing gasoline on the candelabra or floating a Babe Ruth bar in the punchbowl at a church picnic!  Never utter that one at a dinner party.  All the ladies in the room have forks!

Then he wrote, “There’s no hiring bias against women in tech, they just suck at interviews.”  Now here is where Steve is really wrong, in my estimation.  Women are always better than men in interviews.  They feel like they are “on” all the time.  They work at appearance where a man occasionally thinks about it.  They are far more intuitive than men are to what people are saying.  Anyone who has been through elementary school should know, “Girls are smarter,” just stop and think how they looked at you and how many times you heard, “…stupid boy.”

And then Steve published his most famous question, “Does feminism make women ugly?”  The corollaries are: “Who is your next of kin” and “What do you want us to do with the remains?”

It is a matter of record that he did say, or publish, “Bill Kristol: Republican Spoiler: Renegade Jew,” which sounds offensive, but if you read it a few times the edge comes off and “renegade” is the critical element, but more importantly wrong as American Jews are consistently Democrats for reasons I will never understand and they, like Mexicans and all Central Americans, are natural conservatives. Bill Kristol’s conservative Republican status does make him a “renegade Jew.”

By “natural conservatives,” we mean people who believe in the sanctity of life and that a fetus is a person.  They appreciate the value of work, enterprise and earning their way as the keys to personal success and freedom.  They believe in honesty, forthrightness and that people should be free to choose their religion as long as it is not one that calls for subjugating or “killing non-believers” as does Islam.

It seems obvious that men like Michael Moore and Steve Bannon have talents and gifts that were perhaps purchased with something most of us have and they do not.  Having worked for several highly gifted and unique men, some very successful and wealthy, I have noticed they were often lacking in tact. All were “different,” impulsive and hard to be around until you learned to let the quirks go by.  Extreme talent comes at a price many are not willing to pay or abide.  Wives of such men get the full rasher.  They learn to deal with it or the marriage fails quickly.  Some get “Full up to here!” and then split.  Great talent is often both a gift and a curse.  In Steve Bannon President-elect Donald Trump is dealing with such a man.

Adrian Vance

Trained as a science teacher, with eight years classroom experience, he has been writing professionally since the age of 15. He was the youngest person to be published in Journal of the Illinois Academy of Science at 17 as a result of a paper he wrote suggesting a revision in the science teaching curriculum. Publication was accidental as his teacher headed the selection committee and his paper was sent to the printer in error. Nonetheless, it received positive response. It proposed teaching General Science, then Physics followed by Chemistry with Biology in the senior year given the then new molecular focus in Biology. During his college years he worked on the school newspaper, primarily as a photographer and did an occasional feature, some of which caused him to be called to the Dean's office. "You don't like the way we do things here?" was the usual opening remark followed by the expected suggestion. After his third year, exhausted and without direction, he left for one year, but returned, when Sputnik and Admiral Rickover's books documented a crisis in American education. He felt called to teach and completed a B.S. in Physical Science at Illinois State University with a major in chemistry, minor in biology, near minors physics and education. He did graduate work in both Illinois and California completing a California Life Diploma teaching credential in 1962. While teaching he saw many needs and opportunities in educational publishing so he wrote and produced educational materials, primarily filmstrips and sound recordings. He also wrote for photographic magazines as film work put him in touch with many photographic and production problems. He has 325 screen credits in educational, industrial film and filmstrip as a writer-producer. In 1976 he won the Learning Magazine “Best of the Year” award for his “You in the Universe” filmstrip series and the New York Film and Television Festival Silver Medal for “An Introduction to Cells” filmstrip series. For a partial database of Adrian’s publications please click on and you will see them listed by series title and publisher. Each series title included four to 30 filmstrips and all are not fully listed in this database. The grand total is over 800. Over that 30 years Mr. Vance also wrote other material: two books, published in New York: “UFO’s: The Eye and the Camera” for Barlenmir House and “Audiovisual Production” for Amphoto Books. He wrote and illustrated over 100 features and columns for photography magazines. He was a Founding Contributing Editor for Peterson's PhotoGraphic Magazine and the West Coast Editor of Popular Photography from 1974 to 1978, writing a monthly column for the magazine. As a result of underwater photography work he contributed to SKIN DIVER magazine in the 70's. His "Timing Waves to Enter The Sea" article, first appearing in SKIN DIVER, is now a chapter in a classified U.S. Navy Seals training manual. "UFO's, The Eye and the Camera" documents his "Two channel information theory for the analysis of events simultaneously seen and photographed." It is the first comparative analysis of vision and photography written with the idea of combining information from both sources into a single analysis that can be used scientifically and forensically. Mr. Vance is also credited with solving the mystery of how complete maps of Earth were drawn in antiquity and he rediscovered Captain Cook's secret method of locating Pacific islands so well their positions have only recently been improved. He is cited with discovering the method in the seventh edition of "The Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings," by Dr. Charles Hapgood and he later contributed to a definitive article on cartography in antiquity for The Smithsonian Magazine as they confirmed his method. On February 19, 1976 Mr. Vance got a “Certificate of Appreciation” award from the Los Angeles Police Department “in grateful recognition of his generosity in make available to officers of this Department the talents and training of his German Shepherd, Boris. The ready willingness of Mr. Adrian Vance to become involved and to make available his valuable dog in a potentially hazardous situation deserves the gratitude and approbation of the entire Los Angeles Police Department.” This incident was critical to the LAPD administration’s realization that trained dogs could be of value in police work and they are now employed by the LAPD. When the computer replaced film the school market audio-visual field he switched horses at full gallop and produced 460 computer educational disk systems for the Apple II computer over 15 years. During that time he became a professional broadcaster in the 90's to promote the State Water bond issue in Santa Barbara, California as he felt it was critical for the town. He was publicly credited for having been one of the top ten reasons the measure passed thanks to his book “Drought in Paradise” and radio work. The collapse of his software business when Apple Computer discontinued the "II" machine line in 1995 crystallized the failure of his second marriage. With no clear direction in the school market supplemental materials field he sought a career in broadcasting in Las Vegas, Nevada doing shows on both KDWN and KXNT. This was unsatisfying due to the "star" economics of commercial radio where a few performers make millions and everyone else starves. Mr. Vance has also been a day trader, strategist, system developer and author on the equities markets and trading. He now trades stock, land and develops residential property. His website and trading information service, "The Stock Surfer" was a leading Internet service for seven years. He has been developing “The Young Americans” series of Young Adult novels promoting conservative values as well as his personal memoir, “A Long Way From Normal.” You can buy Adrian Vance’ books or downloads at December 21, 2010 he was awarded US. Patent 7,855,061 for his “Fuel Farm” that makes a gasoline equivalent 100 Octane fuel, butanol, from CO2, water and sunlight with algae and bacteria.
