If any of you have been discouraged by the claim of the shadowy organization, PropOrNot, that I am a Russian agent/dupe, or by the ADL’s claim that I am an anti-semite because I report Israel’s mistreatment of Palestinians, or by the claim that I am a conspiracy theorist because I am not taken in by the government’s lies, perk up. Marquis Who’s Who, America’s premier biographical reference work since 1899, has awarded me the Lifetime Achievement Award along with former Secretary of State Colin Powell, US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Apple CEO Tim Cook.
Little doubt some of you will not have a favorable view of the company in which Who’s Who has placed me. But keep in mind that Colin Powell publicly disavowed Bush and Cheney for sending him to tell what turned out to be lies to the UN, acknowledging that it was a blot on his career. Ginsburg, unlike many liberals, seems to believe in law based on precedent and except for the partially born defends civil liberties. Tim Cook is not Steve Jobs, but Apple continues to have good products, although like many other American products they are made abroad with cheap labor.
Think how much worse the company could have been. What if it were Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, Paul Wolfowitz, and Condi Rice? I searched Who’s Who’s Lifetime Achievement files online for each of those names and each search reported “nothing found.” Maybe Who’s Who will get to these achievers later, or maybe these aren’t the kind of achievements that Who’s Who wants to celebrate with its Lifetime Achievement Award. If any of this criminal gang reach similar recognition by Who’s Who, at least I can say I got there first prior to the sullying of the list.
