Hollywood’s Pathological Ego

John Cleese, an actor, has just unleashed a spew of vitriol in which he describes President Trump as an a**hole, unscrupulous, a pathological liar, and upholding a power seeking obsession while all of the peons that follow him are simple idiots.

Cleese, who has been married 4 times, has made his millions pawning his comedic temperament, is a long standing Liberal who supported Obama.

And somehow the irony of his shrewish tongue is lost on him…

In essence he stated that in order to be in politics one must be a narcissistic power grabbing money obsessed a** – but that definition only applies to Conservatives, Liberals would seem to be – immune.   In addition, he would seem oblivious to the obvious irony that this same oblique definition is rather common among actors.

According to Psychology Today, actors are driven by the outcomes of fame, money and adulation.   They are narcissistic, self obsessed and driven by ‘idiocy’.   They are ego driven to extreme and thrive on attention.

But what is most compelling is why they feel the need to become activists, whether politically, socially or environmentally.   Guilt.   Because of their undeserved accolade they feel a sense of guilt that they have accomplished nothing of value.   Subconsciously, they realize that they have spent their lives pretending to be someone else and that as a person they have no character.   So they do what they do best, they create one. They create a personality.

Recently, John Cleese stated that “critics ‘who can’t themselves direct, write, act, sing or dance’ should be replaced.” Perhaps that same denunciation should be imposed on actors/comedians who can’t themselves provide anything worthwhile outside of acting , ie they shouldn’t pretend to be politicians, businessmen, or scientists.

Of course, he is entitled to his opinion, but the glamour fame that surrounds Hollywood should come with greater wisdom in how it is parlayed. Perhaps these Pretenders should undergo classes teaching them not to utilize their fame in a way that deludes people into thinking they are anything else…

Another actor that has attempted to become an activist is Alyssa Milano.   Unlike Cleese, her formal education is rather alarming – less than 8th grade it would seem.   Her most recent rant was an angry tirade over the fact that Joe Rogan’s Podcasts garnered more hits than her own.   Her feelings were hurt because someone else was earning greater fame – and therefore this other person must be denigrated, vilified, and put in their place.

Like Cleese, Milano is oblivious to the hypocrisy.

This isn’t a new phenomena, Celluloid Heroes have been around for decades with Hollywood gaining status as a ‘culture’ of glamour, notoriety, and stardom.   And thus the ego was fed.

Today, many actors having little to no formal education feel compelled yo create in themselves an erudite attitude in which they portray themselves as ‘experts’ in science, art, math, business and – politics.   Having played the screen role, they envision themselves as having the knowledge and wisdom of PhD’s.   And the general public greedily eats up this fakery, this illusion fulfilling the fantasy.

Why?   Because glamour has been redefined as intellect.

While none of this redacts any talent these actors may possess in their chosen employment, it does provide a clearer picture of why they feel compelled to assert themselves as more, and why that power drives them.

John McAfee: A Threat to Politicians, Governments, and the Pharmaceutical Industry – Fighting For His Life

John McAfee of the original cyber security software company, McAfee Associates, has announced via his Twitter account that on June 14th he will release the names of Congressmen and Senators who are corrupt officials.   A self described Hackman, McAfee claims that he can find any information, any dirt, on anyone. He also claims he has a trove of information and evidentiary material on scores of corrupt government officials across the globe that he will release in the event he is not “left alone”.

Personally, I do not think this is an idle threat.

McAfee has certainly lived a ‘colorful’ life, but over the last decade plus, having exiled himself to Belize, his life has spiraled into a chaotic spin that was dramatized in a pseudo documentary by Showtime.

Showtime hired Jeff Wise as executive producer to create a biopic with the help of Nanette Burnstein, a producer and director of a few defunct sitcoms, and a documentary.   Their documentary on McAfee called Gringo, aired in 2016, received no accolade, and began with the premise that McAfee was guilty of a number of crimes.

Showtime highlighted their expose by citing various articles in Psychology Today which labeled McAfee as psychopathic and schizophrenic. But those articles are written by Jeff Wise, basically promoting the validity of a documentary by its own producer.   In essence, Wise actually discredits Gringo through false pseudo analysis – despite having no education in psychology or analysis.

This bizarre tactic was recently employed by the Democrats to create a fake analysis of Trump.

Showtime is owned by AMC Network. Josh Sapan is President and CEO of AMC Networks. In my previous blog, The Soros Web, Sapan is implicated in the Soros web of chaos through his board affiliations including;  People For The American Way and Right Wing Watch.

In 2017, Wikileaks released documentation revealing that the CIA had created extensible Firmware Interface, EFI, to hack Apple Macbooks.   “The malicious software can allegedly embed itself in a computer’s low-level firmware and runs as the system is booting up. It is also coded to survive system updates, reinstallations, and can restore malware that gets removed.”

McAfee spoke out against the breach claiming that these cyberweapons utilized by the CIA and MI5 are quintessentially more powerful and devastating than any nuclear device.   Within the #Vault7 Wikileaks release, it was also revealed that “among the many revelations in the cache of files is that the agency has reportedly created tools that allow it to hack into the world’s most popular smartphones and make them send location information, as well as text and audio data.

The CIA is also allegedly able to turn Samsung TVs into covert listening devices and can disguise its hacks to make them appear as if they are coming from other countries such as Russia, Iran, and China.”

McAfee was quite vocal in defense of Trump regarding the Russia hacking, as well as denying Russia’s involvement in the DNC hacking.   It is likely McAfee had assisted Assange in obtaining some of his caches of emails.

Despite Showtime’s attempt to find McAfee guilty of various crimes including murder, no actual charges have ever been filed against McAfee. While he does admit to fleeing the US it is related to his admission for nonfiling of tax returns.  This would seem to be his only verifiable crime.

An article compiled by Joshua Davis for The Wired, provides a succinct account of a period of time wherein John McAfee’s life became mired in bizarre twists and webs.   Editors for The Wired include Kevin Kelly and Chris Anderson, both of whom came from The Economist, the Rothschild syndicate.

Included in this biography is McAfee’s meeting up with Allison Adonizio in a Belize resort in 2010. A biologist doing postgrad work at Harvard, she explained that her research involved studying plant compounds and their ability to prevent bacteria from causing infections. In essence this discovery would revolutionize antibiotics.

McAfee was immediately onboard and offered to support her research at his property building her a laboratory and growing the specified plants on his land. His vision was how he could save millions of lives and transform the entire pharmaceutical industry…

Prior to hitching a ride with McAfee, Allison Adonizio was apparently living with Gregory Faull, the same man who was found shot in the back of the head execution style in 2012.   The documentary, Gringo, accuses McAfee of this murder.

Allison Adonizio later claimed that McAfee raped her, although accounts of her promiscuity while in Belize would bely that accusation.   Today, Mz Adonizio would seem to have all but disappeared although the Ausubel Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital in conjunction with Genetics at Harvard Medical list their study of research as: studying plant compounds and their ability to prevent bacteria from causing infections.  A link points to Adonizio on the Ausubel site, but her name has been extinguished from their list of researchers.

It would appear McAfee stepped on the wrong feet and his Belize haven would quickly spiral into his 11 dogs being poisoned, two murders, stalking, and numerous attempts on his life.

While today he says he just wants to be left alone – it would appear his cache of collected information presents a gross danger to the livelihood of some very powerful people.  His statement that he will be releasing names on June 14th is more a warning and the big names remain his blackmail.

FYI:  The Greg Faull estate filed a $25 million claim for damages against McAfee for wrongful death.  The judge that awarded the claim was appointed by Bill Clinton.
