Eric Schmidt is a playboy

Published

on

Thursday, Big League Politics reported that the Chairman of Alphabet, Google’s parent company, along with many high profile business executives, have resigned without explanation since September.

“In recent years, I’ve been spending a lot of my time on science and technology issues, and philanthropy and I plan to expand that work,” said Eric E. Schmidt, former chairman of the tech giant.

There seems to be more to the story than philanthropic endeavors and Schmidt’s work with the United States Department of Defense Innovation Board, which will continue, according to Pentagon sources.

Some are speculating that Alphabet may be trying to distance itself from its resident playboy in the midst of the #MeToo movement, in which hundreds of corporate executives have been forced to step down due to allegations of sexual misconduct.

Schmidt has a history of randy activities befitting more, perhaps, of a young professional athlete than a 62-year-old technology executive.

In April, The New York Post reported:

Married Alphabet Inc. chairman and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt is squiring yet another new girlfriend around town. Schmidt has been spotted out with socialite Ulla Parker, a divorcée known for her expensive taste.

Multiple sources tell Page Six that Schmidt and Parker, the glossy-haired ex-wife of Wall Street veteran Kevin Parker (who now runs Sustainable Insight Capital Management), have been spending time together after being introduced by mutual friends.

But, the man has a long history of stepping out.

In 2013, Gawker reported on Schmidt’s $15 million New York City duplex, described as a “sex penthouse,” which is outfitted with a wet bar, soundproofed walls, and a 3,300 square foot terrace. The duplex does not have a doorman, a curious feature for the W. 21st St. abode located in the ritziest enclave of Manhattan.

Around the time of purchasing the apartment, it became well known that Schmidt was dating Lisa Shields, now Vice President of Global Communications for the Council on Foreign Relations. According to a Page Six report, Shields openly bragged to her friends about dating Schmidt, and the two were often seen in public together in New York City and the Hamptons. Schmidt’s other flings include former CNBC correspondent Kate Bohner, and Marcy Simon, an angel investor and former producer at WCMH-TV in Columbus, Ohio.

All of this while married to his wife, Wendy. The couple remains together to this day, and when asked by GQ in 2013 if the two had an open relationship, Mrs. Schmidt refused to comment.

And then there was Schmidt’s infamous Instagram account. The now-deleted account was known for following scantily clad young women like Marissa Montgomery, who has grown up in her own right to become one of Forbes’ 30 under 30, or Brit Smith, now a performance artist.

Schmidt also owns a $50 million superyacht called Oasis, which is outfitted with all of the comforts of home, from a pool, to a fitness center, to a full-fledged nightclub.

A second potential reason for Schmidt’s abrupt departure could be politically-related. He enjoyed a somewhat cozy relationship with the Barack H. Obama administration, with “virtual open-door access to the White House” during the Obama years.

Schmidt was an instrumental part of the technology coordination of Hillary R. Clinton’s failed presidential bid in 2016. In fact, in an email obtained and released by WikiLeaks, John D. Podesta, Clinton campaign chairman, wrote to Clinton campaign spokesman Robby E. Mook:

He’s ready to fund, advise recruit talent, etc. He was more deferential on structure than I expected. Wasn’t pushing to run through one of his existing firms. Clearly wants to be head outside advisor, but didn’t seem like he wanted to push others out. Clearly wants to get going. He’s still in DC tomorrow and would like to meet with you if you are in DC in the afternoon. I think it’s worth doing.

He did, in fact, meet with Clinton, and later met with former president William J. Clinton during the early stages of the Democrat primaries.

Schmidt, through a company called Groundwork in which he was the primary investor, worked in an unspecified but seemingly important capacity in the Clinton campaign.

These days, Schmidt is not enjoying as close a relationship with the presidential administration.

In his first meeting with technology executives in 2016, President Donald J. Trump reportedly asked former chief strategist Steven K. Bannon if Schmidt was the guy that tried to help Hillary win the election.

Schmidt later claimed that the Trump administration would do evil things.

As for the official explanation, Schmidt simply said, “The time is right in Alphabet’s evolution for this transition.”

Closer to home, it might have something to do with the tragic death of his daughter Alison Schmidt, who was battling a long illness. Given his wealth, it had to be a punishing blow to have to bury his child, when there was no cure money could buy.

President Trump Announces New 1776 Commission to Promote Patriotic Education in Nation’s Schools

An alternative to leftist brainwashing.

Published

on

President Donald Trump announced the formation of a new ‘1776 Commission’ during a speech at the National Archives Museum on Thursday, creating a new commission that will work to instill principles of patriotic and pro-American education in defiance to left-wing school and university systems.

The President spoke of the need for the new commission in light of the vision championed by the cultural left, citing the New York Times’ 1619 Project and ‘critical race theory’ anti-white teachings pervasive throughout Fortune 500 companies and federal government agencies. (The President issued an executive order banning critical race theory brainwashing at the beginning of the month.)

The 1776 Commission will work to promote patriotic education and defend American heritage and character. It’s likely the organization will create curriculum that celebrates the American legacy, as leftists in public school and university systems work relentlessly to attack it.

Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character,” Trump said of the Commission’s goals. “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.

These radicals have been aided and abetted by liberal politicians, establishment media, and even large corporations,” Trump said. “Whether it is the mob in the street or the cancel culture in the boardroom, the goal is the same: To silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life.”

We are here today to declare that we will never submit to tyranny. We will reclaim our history and our country for citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed,” the president continued.

The President understands that conservatives and patriots must fight for cultural power as they do for political power, an pressing priority for conservatives who desire to fight back against the cultural left’s domination of the educational world.
