Martin Eden: A Writer’s Story More Bitter Than Sweet-Jack Engelhard

Jack London wrote this novel, “Martin Eden,” when he was only in his 30s and it’s really the story of his life…about making it as a writer and about achieving that goal and about the futility of it all. His wanted fame and wealth and he got all that after years of rejection. He wanted the girl of his dreams, Ruth Morse, and when she finally came to him, he’d had enough.

Can you relate?

By the time the world caught up to him, Martin Eden was emptied out.  The people whose approval he sought turned out to be phonies.

This brings to mind J.D. Salinger who (so brilliantly and so timelessly) used Holden Caulfield to express the same loathing, disgust and despair.

Dirty Politics? You Must Be Kidding

Jack Engelhard

We’ve been warned that as primary season moves along, we’ll, it’s going to get ugly. Get ready for smear campaigns, attack ads – no mercy, no prisoners.

Yes, we’re being told, Dirty Politics will rule. (Ooh. I’m so scared.)

Psst: here’s a tip. We don’t even qualify as amateurs here in America. Take Kenya, please. The whole country is in an uproar because of a dispute as to who won the latest election for the top seat. Hundreds, maybe thousands, have been hacked to death in this tribal bloodbath, villages uprooted, and thousands sent scattering.

That’s dirty politics!

Saudi Prince Haunts Murdoch

By Jack Engelhard

Billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal…this is the man who donated $27 million to Palestinian terrorists during a Saudi “telethon.”

This is the man who offered Mayor Rudy $10 million upon the proposition that we, the United States, admit that we ourselves were responsible for 9/11.

Rudy said, “No thanks.”

Rupert Murdoch, however, said thanks when Alwaleed offered to buy a share of Murdoch’s empire, and thus Alwaleed became the company’s second largest shareholder at 10 percent. Or perhaps it was son James Murdoch who invited in the Prince. Rupert is known as a friend of Israel.

Not so James, who at this moment sits on the hot seat before an investigative committee at Parliament on the matter of widespread phone/email-hacking – COINCIDENTALLY on 9/11 survivors — which threatens to bring down the entire Murdoch empire. James Murdoch once referred to those “F…Israelis” in a meeting with former prime minister  Tony Blair – as revealed by Blair’s top aide Alastair Campbell.

Casey Anthony Bigger Than 9/11 – And Here’s Why

 

By Jack Engelhard

We all came together after 9/11 and we grieved properly and the media coverage was wall-to-wall – but nothing compared to this!

We’ve been in the eye of this Casey Anthony saga week by week, hour after hour and we are more outraged at this one woman than we were against the Islamic terrorists who murdered some 3,000 of our people in Lower Manhattan. I have no answer to this lopsided span of attention, only a guess or two.
