In a fleeting flash of fame that is becoming notorious rapidly Democrat Frederica Wilson of Florida illuminated a breathless throng of major media reporters and reporterettes saying, “The dog can bark at the moon all night long, but it doesn’t become an issue until the moon barks back.”  (Huh?)

Frothing-at-the-mouth Democrats are trying to make President Trump a monster after one their operatives tapped into his phone call to a Gold Star mother, who lost a son in the Afghanistan war and criticized his saying, “…he knew what he was getting into…” as if Mr. Trump were so inept he would he would insult or slur the deceased soldier to his mother!

It should be very clear Mr. Trump either followed “…he knew what he was getting into…” with, “but he did it for America.”  Or, he clutched and could not say it as making such a call takes a degree of “separation of the moment” only trained actors, professional politicians or other scoundrels have in their skill sets.  Most of us have not worked to have such mastery of our emotions.  Mr. Trump is one of us.

Equally likely Mr. Trump said it and Representative Frederica Wilson clipped it, but the critical question remains:  How in the world did this Congresswoman get a copy of the call in the first place?  This is not a leak.  It is an act of intrusion or sabotage, skullduggery, deception or illegal wiretapping that should be prosecuted as a crime.

There are factions in both parties that see Mr. Trump as a real threat where he could end the game that has been going on in Washington, DC since the time of President Woodrow Wilson.  The rise of people who use government for power, wealth and personal aggrandizement. Their trick has long been, “being for the little guy, the downtrodden, the weak, the indigent…”  But, they never deliver.  The game the Democrats play on “black people,” immigrants, needy, infirm and unable is nothing less than original sin.

All such crimes grow at only the rate the people will tolerate, which is a complex function of presentation, power and proximity, as well as the transmission of information which, it would seem, has recently reduced the third term to zero. Thus, we are witnessing the end of the “Democratic” party.  It has been a fraud in all respects never having been open to the masses, but run by men in smoke-filled rooms busy exchanging money, whisky and men for power over all.

Now that the people have ways of transmitting ideas, facts, money and more at the speed of light through the Internet the only hope they have is to destroy or control the beast.  They made one attack with “Network Neutrality” and we can be sure they will make many more as that is burr under their saddle and “the moon” has found a way to bark back.”

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.
