Andrew Solomon | Expect Us

(writer for Peter Whybrow)  Like cohesive narratives? The ones that help you as you are ambushed by BS?  We know you do, this is why we do what we do!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Andrew Solomon (born 30 October 1963) is a writer on politics, culture and psychology who lives in New York and London. He has written for The New York TimesThe New YorkerArtforumTravel and Leisure, and other publications on a range of subjects, including depression,[1] Soviet artists,[2] the cultural rebirth of Afghanistan,[3]Libyan politics,[4][5] and deaf politics.[6] His most recent book, The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression[7] won the 2001 National Book Award,[8] was a finalist for the 2002 Pulitzer Prize,[9] and was included in The Times of London’s list of one hundred best books of the decade.[10]

Solomon attended the Horace Mann School, graduating cum laude in 1981.[11] He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Yale University in 1985, graduatingmagna cum laude,[12] and later earned a Master’s degree in English at Jesus College, Cambridge.[13] He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in psychology, at Jesus College, Cambridge, working on attachment theory under the supervision of Prof. Juliet Mitchell.[14]Education

Family

Solomon is the oldest son of Howard Solomon, chairman of pharmaceutical manufacturer Forest Laboratories, and Carolyn Bower Solomon. Solomon described the experience of being present at his mother’s planned suicide at the end of a long battle with ovarian cancer in an article for the New Yorker;[15] in a fictionalized account in his novel, A Stone Boat; and again in The Noonday Demon. Solomon’s subsequent depression, eventually managed with psychotherapy and antidepressant medications, inspired his father to secure FDA approval to market Celexa in the United States.[16]

Born and raised in New York City, as an adult Solomon became a dual citizen of the United States and the United Kingdom. He and journalist John Habich were joined in an official civil partnership ceremony on June 30, 2007, at Althorp, the Spencer family (The Spencer family is one of Britain’s most illustrious aristocratic dynasties. This noble family descended in the male line from Henry Spencer, claimed to be a descendant of the cadet branch of the ancient House Le Despencer (died c. 1478), male-line ancestor of the Earls of Sunderland, the later Dukes of Marlborough, and the Earls Spencer. Other prominent members of the family include Winston Churchill (grandson of the 7th Duke of Marlborough) and Diana, Princess of Wales (daughter of the 8th Earl Spencer). The descent of the Spencer family from the Medieval Despencers has been challenged, especially by Horace Round in his essay on The Rise of the Spencers. The Spencers were granted a coat of arms in 1504 which bears no resemblance to that used by the family after c. 1595, which was derived from the Despencer arms. Round believed that the Despencer descent was fabricated by Richard Lee, a corrupt Clarencieux King of Arms.) estate and childhood home of Diana, Princess of Wales.[17][18] The couple married again on July 19, 2009, the eighth anniversary of their meeting, in Connecticut, so that their marriage would be legally recognized in the state of New York.[19]

In 2003, Solomon and longtime friend Blaine Smith decided to have a child together; their daughter, Carolyn Blaine Smith Solomon, was born in November 2008. Mother and child live in Texas. A son, George Charles Habich Solomon, was born in April 2009, and lives in New York with Solomon and Habich, his adoptive father. Mr. Habich is also biological father of two children, Oliver and Lucy, born to lesbian friends who live in Minneapolis. The development of this composite family was the subject of a feature article by Solomon published in Newsweek in January 2011.[19]

Media Blackout As Obama Appoints First Ever Assassination Czar

Media Blackout As Obama Appoints First Ever Assassination Czar

Corporate news blackout as Obama appoints John Brennan as the sole person in charge of designating people to be assassinated.

John Brennan, Obama’s chief counterterrorism advisor was a name that you did not see on the Mainstream media today as they continue to run stories that serve to distract the masses from stories that matter.

Most recently he publicly spoke about the drone program calling it moral and ethical and just.

According to reports from the Associated Press, John Brennan has now seized the lead in choosing who will be targeted for drone attacks and raids after Obama delegated him as the sole authority to designate people for assassination under the United States top-secret assassination program.

Yes, if it such a secret program then why is the Associated Press running a story on it? Because it is only a “top-secret” matter of National Insecurity when the public and organizations such as the ACLU request more details on it than is revealed int the propagandized reports the public is fed through the corporate media.

While this story deserves to have been put before the eyeballs of every U.S. citizens it was merely a side note ran by the Associate Press that didn’t make corporate news headlines anywhere.

According to the AP, under the new plan, Brennan’s staff compiles the potential target list and runs the names past agencies such as the State Department at a weekly White House meeting.

At the same time ACLU lawsuits and requests for information about the decision-making process behind the government’s assassination program repeatedly get denied with the government claiming the programs are so top-secret that they can neither confirm nor deny the programs even exist.

    May 24, 2012 at 10:11 pm Of all the people in this country, President Obama picks John Brennan to be the “assassination czar”? Brennan wouldn’t know a terrorist if one snuck up his backside with a case of dynamite tied to his rear end. Brennan has a hard time just saying the words, “Islamic Terrorist”. And with Eric Holder being A.G., how many CIA operatives or Seal Team members are going to put their lives and careers on the line when they would more likely be prosecuted by Holder for killing one of those scumbag terrorists?

KEEP ON!! & DOX ‘MOVEON’

Conflict of interest is a big problem on Earth.
