Roads To Moscow - Al Stewart

My brother's father-in-law was in the Luftwaffe and was captured by the Russians. He showed up on his wife's doorstep in 1956 and my sister-in-law was born. Funny how this old world turns.

Peter Thiel's Origin Story His ideology dominates Silicon Valley.

These guys are dangerous.


In 2019, while on a trip to Washington to answer questions from Congress about his digital currency, Thiel joined Zuckerberg, Jared Kushner, Trump, and their spouses at the White House. The specifics of the discussion were secret — but, as I report in my book, Thiel later told a confidant that Zuckerberg came to an understanding with Kushner during the meal. Facebook, he promised, would continue to avoid fact-checking po­litical speech — thus allowing the Trump campaign to claim whatever it wanted. If the company followed through on that promise, the Trump administra­tion would lay off on any heavy-handed regulations.
