Franklin D. Roosevelt: A Life From Beginning to End (Biographies of US Presidents)

Franklin D. Roosevelt* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.One of America’s most influential presidents was a man who could not walk. The polio that struck Franklin Delano Roosevelt when he was a future political star did not diminish him. Instead, against all expectations, it was the agent that forged his destiny. He came from an affluent family; a cousin, Theodore Roosevelt, had been president; another Roosevelt cousin, Eleanor, would become the wife who transformed the role of First Lady into her version of the bully pulpit. However, FDR’s path to politics was far different from the one that Theodore traveled. Inside you will read about...✓ The Roosevelt Household: Son, Mother, Wife✓ Politics and Infidelity✓ Roosevelt, the Paraplegic✓ Eleanor, FDR's Cousin and First Lady✓ The United States Enters War✓ The Death of the Longest Serving PresidentAnd much more!The pampered son of an elderly father and the strong-willed Sara Delano Roosevelt showed no particular acumen in his youth. FDR was not a scholar or an athlete of great renown. His romantic endeavors were awkward. What, then, created the dynamic leader who inspired a nation to believe in itself when it was reeling from the Great Depression and the shadow of war across the ocean? Perhaps it was adversity itself that transformed the golden boy into the tested president who vowed that America would not fall, that the economy would recover, that liberty would triumph over oppression. He had seen in his own life how, deprived of the use of his legs, he was nonetheless able to mobilize a nation by his energetic example. It’s true that Franklin Delano Roosevelt could not walk. But it was because of him that the United States of America was able, in the tumultuous years of the Great Depression and World War II, to remain standing when nations all around the world were falling.

At the Coalface: Part 1 of 3: The memoir of a pit nurse

A heart-warming story of a woman who devoted her life to helping others. This is the memoir of Joan, who started nursing in the 1940s and whose experiences took her into the Yorkshire mining pits and through the tumult of the 1984-85 miners' strike.

Joan Hart always knew what she wanted to do with her life. Born in South Yorkshire in 1932, she started her nursing training when she was 16, the youngest age girls could do so at the time. She continued working after she married and her work took her to London and Doncaster, caring for children and miners.

When she took a job as a pit nurse in Doncaster in 1974, she found that in order to be accepted by the men under her care, she would have to become one of them. Most of the time rejecting a traditional nurse's uniform and donning a baggy miner's suit, pit boots, a hardhat and a headlamp, Joan resolved always to go down to injured miners and bring them out of the pit herself.

Over 15 years Joan grew to know the miners not only as a nurse, but as a confidante and friend. She tended to injured miners underground, rescued men trapped in the pits, and provided support for them and their families during the bitter miners' strike which stretched from March 1984 to 1985.

Moving and uplifting, this is a story of one woman's life, marriage and work; it is guaranteed to make readers laugh, cry, and smile.

My People, the Amish: The True Story of an Amish Father and Son

In My People, the Amish, Joe Keim paints a detailed picture of life behind the bonnets and buggies. More than a biography, this is an honest look at the heart-warming traditions that mingle with the deep-rooted legalism of the Amish community in Ashland, Ohio.Born, raised, and baptized in an Old Order Amish church, from childhood Joe Keim was taught that if he didn’t follow the twenty-two-page ordinance letter that governed his community, there was no way he could get to heaven. What started as a path of rebellion led Joe and his wife Esther to a caring group of Englisher Christians who would love them like family and show them how to live out their new found faith in Jesus Christ. Nine months after their traditional Amish wedding, Joe and Esther left family and friends forever to live openly for Christ, and endured shunning and excommunication with bold faith. Since then, the Lord has brought many former Amish people to Joe and Esther for help. Because of their passion for the Amish people and with the support of fellow believers, they have brought biblical truth to thousands of Amish through the ministry they founded in 2000, Mission to Amish People (MAP).About the AuthorJoe Keim was born and raised in Ashland, Ohio. He married Esther Keim in 1986 and they left the Old Order Amish community in 1987. They have two grown children, Jonathan and Rachel. In 2001, Joe left his job as a tool and die maker for full-time ministry. The Keims travel all over the US, speaking in churches, as well as to hospital staff, to law enforcement, and at colleges, helping people understand how to communicate with the Amish.Through personal witness, home Bible studies, home prayer meetings, the Bible Club, The Amish Voice, and the Audio Ministry, the Keims want to see every Amish person hear the clear message of salvation. MAP offers counseling and protection to those who are victims of sexual, mental, and physical abuse. The ministry also provides help with needs such as getting a GED, obtaining a birth certificate, and finding a job. Through the Bible Club alone, they have seen more than 2,500 Amish make commitments for Christ.

Vlad the Impaler: A Life From Beginning to End

Vlad the ImpalerThe character Count Dracula is well-known throughout the world. He is a dark, seductive, pale man wearing a cape. His gaze is quite literally captivating, and he has the strength of ten men. The story, written by Bram Stoker in 1897, has been retold hundreds of times, but is there a historical figure upon whom the character is based? Is there really a Dracula? Many scholars argue that Vlad III Dracula, also known as Vlad the Impaler, is the real Dracula. He was known in western Europe for his cruelty, most especially his penchant for impaling his victims. He is said to have killed somewhere between 40,000 and 100,000 people during his crusade to stop the Ottoman Empire from expanding into eastern Europe. He was equally harsh on the people he ruled and is said to have taken great pleasure in torturing his victims. Inside you will read about...✓ Vlad’s early life and family✓ Rise to power: Vlad’s first reign✓ War with the Ottomans, Vlad’s main reign✓ Vlad’s imprisonment, third reign, and death✓ Vlad Dracula’s legacy✓ Vlad the Impaler in fiction: Count DraculaHis story, however, is much more complicated than the oft-reported details of his atrocities would imply. He lived in a time of conflict where many were equally as cruel, and he is viewed as a hero in Romania where he is remembered as a protector of his people. This eBook tells the story of his life and times, and discusses his connection to the fictional Count Dracula, in a succinct, compelling manner, which makes for an entertaining read that is packed with historical information.

Constance Street: Part 1 of 3: The true story of one family and one street in London’s East End

Constance Street can either be read as a full-length eBook or in 3 serialised eBook-only parts.

This is PART 1 of 3.

You can read Part 1 two weeks ahead of release of the full-length eBook and paperback.

One forgotten street, 12 unforgettable women.

Through the story of one street - Constance Street - we hear the true life tales of a tight-knit group of working class women in the East End of London set against a backdrop of war, hardship and struggle.

It's a story of matriarchy and deep family ties, of a generation that was scattered away from the street during the blitz bombings, but which maintained the ties of that street for decades afterwards.

Set in an area of East London called Silvertown, a once thriving docking community that at the turn of the 20th century was the industrial heartland of the south of England; the story focuses on the lives of 12 incredible women and their struggle to survive amidst the chaos of the war years.

We have Nellie Greenwood, the author's great grandmother who runs a laundry in Silvertown which becomes the focal point of the community. In 1917 a munitions factory in Silvertown explodes flattening much of the surrounding area and causing extensive damage to Constance Street - Nellie's daughter is blown from her crib but miraculously survives.

Deciding to open the laundry as a field hospital for the injured, Nellie and the women on the street come together to tend the wounded, the sick and the emotionally shattered as they cope with the aftermath of not just one but two world wars.

Through the Great War, the roaring Twenties, the Depression and then the unimaginable - the outbreak of a second world war - Nellie and the street survive with love, laughter and friendships that bind the community together. But just as this incredible group of women live through the worst, the unthinkable happens. On 7 September 1940, Constance Street is no more.

Following in the footsteps of Farewell to the East End by Jennifer Worth and The Sugar Girls, Constance Street is a life-affirming, heart-warming read that reminds us of a time when people pulled together.

He became a celebrated orator, writer, and statesman, and he was always an abolitionist.

In the end, there only seemed to be one way out.Megan’s powerful story reveals the devastating realities of human trafficking and the fear that imprisons its victims more effectively than any cage could ever do.

Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners (Updated, Illustrated): A Brief Account of Goda??s Exceeding Mercy through Christ to His Poor Servant, John Bunyan (Bunyan Updated Classics Book 5)

Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he has done unto my soul. (Psalm 66:16) This is a short and honest account of how God demonstrated His exceeding great mercy to His unworthy servant, John Bunyan.This story specifically tells how Bunyan was converted. John Bunyan was a companion of sin and was troubled by sin. He fought temptation and sin in his own strength and lost, and in despair he gave up hope of ever finding God’s mercy; but the Lord Jesus Christ at last delivered him from the guilt and terror that so often and so viciously troubled him.In addition to this, a short account of Bunyan’s call to the work of the ministry is told, along with the trials and trouble he encountered – including some of the difficulties he faced while in prison.This is all taken from his writings and is now published for the encouragement and support of others who are weak and tempted and need strength and hope and victory in Jesus.About the AuthorJohn Bunyan was born in November 1628, in Elstow, England. A celebrated English minister and preacher, he wrote The Pilgrim’s Progress (1678), the book that was the most characteristic expression of the Puritan religious outlook. His other works include doctrinal and controversial writings; a spiritual autobiography, Grace Abounding (1666); and the allegory, The Holy War (1682).

But it's not all smooth sailing in Hackney: for every baby that goes home to its loving family another is abandoned, unloved, or never gets to go home at all.

Funny, warm and deeply moving, Sarah Beeson's poignant memoir captures both the heartache and happiness of hospital life and 1970s London through the eyes of a gentle but determined young nurse.

From a young age, Ava’s self-taught belief that she was destined for more then the community's recreational activities of sex, raising babies and going to the farm gave her the courage to forge a very different path than the one expected of her.

Dancing Bare

Dancing Bare is an amusing and unconventional autobiography. Rigby, an impossibly innocent young man, swaps the suffocating confines of middle class New Zealand for love and liberation in nineteen-sixties London and Europe. Revelling in the freedom conferred by anonymity, he becomes an actor, stripper, rent boy, lover, teacher and dedicated traveller through Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, where travellers were uncommon and countries still retained many of the differences that made travelling so interesting. Rigby meets with a wide variety of people, life styles and customs, eventually settling in Paris where the state did not consider his sexuality to be a criminal offence.A moving and amusing story of hope and love, sex and sexuality, theatrical showmanship and artless innocence, laced with a little philosophical speculation as he wanders the world in pursuit of true love.

The O'Dell File (Kindle Single)

The general public has never heard of Jack O’Dell. But many of those who worked with him in the fifties and sixties consider him the unsung hero of the Black Freedom Movement. Victor Navasky, the longtime editor of The Nation and author of the acclaimed book Kennedy Justice, drawing on secret government files and interviews with O'Dell himself, seeks to correct that historical oversight. O’Dell, at one time a close confidant of Martin Luther King, Jr., was described by J. Edgar Hoover as “the number five Communist in the United States,” cited as a reason for the wiretapping of MLK, and was subsequently forced out of King’s inner circle. In this compassionate and vivid biography, Navasky reveals O’Dell’s unique organizing capacity and brilliant mind, while lamenting what American society, obsessed by the so-called Communist menace, lost by disqualifying him from being an open and visible contributor to the Civil Rights movement.VICTOR S. NAVASKY is the former editor and publisher of The Nation, a former editor at The New York Times Magazine, and founder of Monocle, a "leisurely quarterly of political satire.". He is the author of, among other books, Kennedy Justice, Naming Names, which won a 1982 National Book Award, A Matter of Opinion, which won the George Polk Book Award, and The Art of Controversy: Political Cartoons and Their Enduring Power. He teaches at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where he is the director of the Delacorte Center for Magazine Journalism and chair of the Columbia Journalism Review.

Missionary Warrior: Charles E. Cowman

“Called to Japan. August 11, 1900, 10:30 a.m.”When Charles E. Cowman made this notation in his Bible, he did not know how the Lord was going to use him over the next 24 years. From telegraph operator to faith missionary to founder of a missions organization that continues strong today, Cowman’s driving force was always for more people to come to know Jesus as their personal Savior. Though his story is more than a century old, his example of a life dedicated to following his Lord, wherever that led him, continues to inspire many people today. About the AuthorLettie B. Cowman and her husband, Charles, were cofounders of The Oriental Missionary Society, now One Mission Society. After Charles’ death in 1924, Mrs. Cowman collected devotions that she wrote during his illness and published Streams in the Desert, one of the best-selling devotionals of all time. In addition to Missionary Warrior and Streams in the Desert, she published a number of other books and served as President of The Oriental Missionary Society from 1928 through 1949.

Howell Harris: His Own Story

Howell Harris was brought up to regard the Nonconformists as "a perverted and dangerously erroneous set of people." Hardly a promising start for a man who was to play a major role in the Welsh Revival. Yet in these extracts from his writings and diaries we can read the thoughts of Howell Harris before, during and after his own conversion. We can see God breaking through the barriers separating "church and chapel", and discover Christians of different denominations preparing the country for revival. Wesley, Whitefield, Harris. These great 18th century preachers worked both independently and together to preach the Living Gospel. This book is a vivid first-hand account of the joys, hardships and struggles of one of these men -- Howell Harris.

Memory Politics in Contemporary Russia: Television, Cinema and the State (Studies in Contemporary Russia)

This book examines the societal dynamics of memory politics in Russia. Since Vladimir Putin became president, the Russian central government has increasingly actively employed cultural memory to claim political legitimacy and discredit all forms of political opposition. The rhetorical use of the past has become a defining characteristic of Russian politics, creating a historical foundation for the regime’s emphasis on a strong state and centralised leadership.Exploring memory politics, this book analyses a wide range of actors, from the central government and the Russian Orthodox Church, to filmmaker and cultural heavyweight Nikita Mikhalkov and radical thinkers such as Aleksandr Dugin. In addition, in view of the steady decline in media freedom since 2000, it critically examines the role of cinema and television in shaping and spreading these narratives. Thus, this book aims to gain a better understanding of the various means through which the Russian government practices its memory politics (e.g., the role of state media) and, on the other hand, to sufficiently value the existence of alternative and critical voices and criticism that existing studies tend to overlook. Contributing to current debates in the field of memory studies and of current affairs in Russia and Eastern Europe, this book will be of interest to scholars working in the fields of Russian Studies, Cultural Memory Studies, Nationalism and National Identity, Political Communication, Film, Television and Media Studies.

During the Renaissance science was never separated from mysticism and alchemy. Some of the finest minds such as Leonardo da Vinci and Isaac Newton were all heavily involved in what they would of called the mystic arts. In "Mystics of the Renaissance", published in 1911, Rudolf Steiner examines the thought of eleven less well known pioneers of scientific discovery and European mystics (Eckhart, Tauler, Suso, Ruysbroek, Nicholas of Cusa, Agrippa von Nettesheim, Paracelsus, Weigel, Boehme, Giordano Bruno, and Angelus Silesius) through a collection of essays and explains their ideas and how they relate to modern concepts.

The Last of the Giants: How Christ Came to the Lumberjacks

In its early years, Duluth was a gold mine for lumber barons. Men were employed as lumberjacks and worked like beasts, only to be tossed aside like used equipment when no longer needed. The grand forests were raped for their prime timber, the balance burned wastefully. The men were coarse and hard, but they had to be to survive. More than any other people that ever lived in our land, these old-time lumberjacks could truthfully say, “No man cared for my soul.”That is, until God sent three men to the great Northwoods of our country ¬– Frank Higgins, John Sornberger, and Al Channer. These men blazed new trails of the Spirit and founded an empire for God. They reached a sector of humanity for which no spiritual work had ever been done before, storming the Northwoods with a consuming passion for Christ. And with that passion, they also brought a heart as big as all outdoors, a love for men that burned like a flame, and a desperate desire to see these men saved.

Scholars, Travellers and Trade: The Pioneer Years of the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden, 1818-1840

Today, the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden is internationally known for its outstanding archaeological collections. Yet its origins lie in an insignificant assortment of artefacts used for study by Leiden University. How did this transformation come about?Ruurd Halbertsma has delved into the archives to show that the appointment of Caspar Reuvens as Professor of Archaeology in 1818 was the crucial turning point. He tells the dramatic story of Reuvens' struggle to establish the museum, with battles against rival scholars, red tape and the Dutch attitude of neglect towards archaeological monuments. This book throws new light on the process of creating a national museum, and the difficulties of convincing society of the value of the past.

Terrace Heroes: The Life and Times of the 1930s Professional Footballer (Sport in the Global Society)

The 1930s saw the birth of the football idol - prototype for today's powerful media sport stars. The players of the 1930s were the first generation of professionals, yet until recently the life and careers of footballers of this generation has been little studied. In 1930s Britain, football became increasingly commercialized, and the rise and development of both local and national media enabled players to become widely recognized outside of their immediate local context for the first time. Tracing the origins, playing careers and 'afterlives' of several First Division players of the era, Graham Kelly's revealing history explores the reality of living in Britain between the wars and draws interesting comparisons with lives of the modern football hero today.

Everything Man: The Form and Function of Paul Robeson (Refiguring American Music)

From his cavernous voice and unparalleled artistry to his fearless struggle for human rights, Paul Robeson was one of the twentieth century's greatest icons and polymaths. In Everything Man Shana L. Redmond traces Robeson's continuing cultural resonances in popular culture and politics. She follows his appearance throughout the twentieth century in the forms of sonic and visual vibration and holography; theater, art, and play; and the physical environment. Redmond thereby creates an imaginative cartography in which Robeson remains present and accountable to all those he inspired and defended. With her bold and unique theorization of antiphonal life, Redmond charts the possibility of continued communication, care, and collectivity with those who are dead but never gone.

A Study of Peter

Peter, by no means, comes close to writing near as much of the New Testament as either Paul or Luke. Even John wrote more Books of the Bible than Peter did. But there is just something about Peter, both in his life and in his writings that seems so easy for most people to associate with.In this study, we will be looking closely at Peter, trying to see just what made Peter do and say the things that he did. Hopefully you will find something about Peter that you too can associate with in your own life. But even more so, hopefully you will come close to God through Jesus Christ as you study about the life of Peter.

POWERMOVES: A Maori Entrepreneur's Journey From the Benefit to the Boardroom

There’s this thing in New Zealand called ‘Tall Poppy Syndrome’ and it works like this: instead of applauding our fellow Kiwis’ success and patting them on the back, we chop them down. It’s a real thing - AND IT SUCKS!According to the Oxford Dictionary, Tall Poppy Syndrome refers to ‘a tendency in our society to try and cut down people who are considered to be too successful or prominent (cutting the tall poppies down to size)’. If you’ve lived in New Zealand for a while you might have noticed Kiwis generally don’t like other Kiwis doing too well.For some reason we don’t like people who are too big for their boots, or drive flash cars, or create massively successful businesses. It can even begin at school. ‘Try-hards,’ ‘nerds,’ and ‘teacher’s pets’ are all examples of Tall Poppy Syndrome. I say - STUFF THAT! This book is about starting the conversation to destroy the Tall Poppy Syndrome and saying YES TO SUCCESS. It’s ok to win - it’s ok to be successful.

In the Skin of a Jihadist: Free Sampler: Inside Islamic State’s Recruitment Networks

FREE SAMPLER FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

When Anna Erelle, a young journalist, goes undercover online to discover how today's most ruthless terrorists use social media to recruit disaffected young women like the girls from Bethnal Green, her investigation spins into a harrowing nightmare.

In this extract, Erelle creates 'Melodie' - a twenty-year-old convert to Islam on Facebook - who is immediately Skyped by a man named Bilel, in Syria. Bilel is the French right-hand man of the most dangerous militant in the world, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Caliph of Islamic State. He offers Melodie a way to fill the boredom in her young life: he cares about her, offers beautiful things, spiritual purpose and, in less an idyllic life.

Reginald McKenna: Financier among Statesmen, 1863a??1916 (British Politics and Society)

Reginald McKenna has never been the subject of scholarly attention. This was partly due to his own preference for appearing at the periphery of events even when ostensibly at the centre, and the absence of a significant collection of private papers. This new book redresses the neglect of this major statesmen and financier partly through the natural advance of historical research, and partly by the discoveries of missing archival material. McKenna's role is now illuminated by his own reflections, and by the correspondence of friends and colleagues, including Asquith, Churchill, Keynes, Baldwin, Bonar Law, MacDonald, and Chamberlain. McKenna's presence at the hub of political life in the first half of the century is now clear: in the radical Liberal governments of 1905–16, where he acted as a lightning conductor for the party; during the war, where he served as the Prime Minister's deputy and the principal voice for restraint in the conduct of the war; and as chairman of the world's largest bank, where until his death in office aged eighty, he prompted progressive policies to deal with the issues of war debt, trade, mass unemployment, and the return to gold.

Through her love affairs, philosophical musings & psychedelic experimentation we are brought on a journey around the continent as a reflection of her internal search for answers. Why have I never felt at home? Why did my mother give me up? Why do I feel incomplete without a lover? Why does the 'real world' seem so unreal to me?Holly Avila is an artist, author & musician who has been writing & performing songs since the 1970s. Her love of folk music led her to Greenwich Village, NYC where she formed the bands NY Frets & later Wheels, playing the tri-state country-bluegrass-blues circuit for 12 years. In 1986, Variety wrote, "The city came through vividly in the lyrics, but her deep-rooted singing was pure country like maple syrup poured over a stack of flapjacks." Her music found its way to the big screen in 1987 when Wheel's song "Trying Very Hard" appeared in the feature film Kandyland. Holly later joined the Juggernaut String Band in Pennsylvania while raising her children.

The Clarion of Syria: A Patriot's Call against the Civil War of 1860

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. When Nafir Suriyya—“The Clarion of Syria”—was penned between September 1860 and April 1861, its author Butrus al-­Bustani, a major figure in the modern Arabic Renaissance, had witnessed his homeland undergo unprecedented violence in what many today consider Lebanon’s first civil war. Written during Ottoman and European investigations into the causes and culprits of the atrocities, The Clarion of Syria is both a commentary on the politics of state intervention and social upheaval, and a set of visions for the future of Syrian society in the wake of conflict.   This translation makes a key historical document accessible for the first time to an English audience. An introduction by the translators sketches the history that led up to the civil strife in Mt. Lebanon, outlines a brief biography of Butrus al-­Bustani, and provides an authoritative overview of the literary style and historiography of Nafir Suriyya. Rereading these pamphlets in the context of today’s political violence, in war-­torn Syria and elsewhere in the Arab world, helps us gain a critical and historical perspective on sectarianism, foreign invasions, conflict resolution, Western interventionism, and nationalist tropes of reconciliation.

Erika and Klaus Mann in New York: Escape from the Magic Mountain (Chicago Shorts)

This is the riveting tale of two brave nonconformists whose dramatic lives open up new perspectives on the history of the twentieth century. Thomas Mann’s two eldest children, Erika and Klaus, were unconventional, rebellious, and fiercely devoted to each other. Empowered by their close bond, they espoused vehemently anti-Nazi views in a Europe swept up in fascism and were openly, even defiantly, gay in an age of secrecy and repression. In 1936, they fled to the United States and chose New York as their new adopted home. From the start, the two were embroiled by the literary and intellectual life, political turmoil, and shifting sexual mores of their times. Andrea Weiss engages their struggles, their friendships (Maurice Wertheim and Annemarie Schwarzenbach, among them), and their liaisons, as the siblings try to adapt to their new lives, all while introducing their work to an American audience for the first time.

Of fiber and people

In 1999, Shaul Shani and Amos Genish, two fearless businessmen, without any experience in the Brazilian telecommunications market, driven by a great dream but with limited capital, built GVT and took on the industry's large companies. Against all odds, the startup grew to become an important player in an industry dominated by giants, transforming itself from a small undertaking of US$ 54 thousand, into a US$9 billion company that is considered a market reference.In this book, Bruno Fernandes and Chico Barbosa highlight and analyze the events behind GVT's creation. It is a story with all the makings of a corporate thriller, revealing the moments of tension, doubt, and the extreme pressure under which the GVT executives operated as they made their way to the top of the industry.From the start, Shani and Genish faced seemingly insurmountable obstacles, such as investors' skepticism and aversion to new technology businesses, and delays in the company's IPO (Initial Public Offering). Moreover, as the company and market evolved, they had to tackle diverse management issues, expand operations to new regions and launch new businesses. Each milestone the company reached was a stepping stone in building a culture based on fiber and people. By investing in new technologies as well as in its employees, the company built a highly motivated team, able to communicate with customers in a transparent way, delivering consistent results.GVT started a new cycle when it was acquired by Telefónica in a competitive and unprecedented deal that became the biggest foreign investment in a Brazilian asset since 1980, at US$ 9 billion."GVT's strength lies in the originality of its business model, as well as its technological model." – Jean-Bernard Lévy, former CEO, Vivendi"GVT has an incredible story, leveraging its latest generation network and technology with a DNA that is highly focused on innovation." – Marco Patuano, former CEO, Telecom Italia

Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell teamed up with Wells Fargo Bank and its Russian HQ, using their Russian connections, such as Nikita Lobanov-Rostovsky and Alex Shor, to harass and terrorize this transgender woman. How they spent hundreds of thousands of $$$ to attack my character and good name. How Wells Fargo is now consulting Donald Trump and helping him get away with his crimes. How they hired Doctor Rosenberg out of Los Angeles to have me sexually assaulted because they needed to know whether I have breast implants or "confirmation surgery". How Trump, aided and abetted by Wells Fargo, attacks the LGBTQ community, particularly black trans women. How Putin's influence in the US through transphobia weakens and disrupts America's standing in the world.There are two that always abuse law and justice, those two are above the law and above any accountability in the United States of America: Donald Trump and Wells Fargo Bank. And Wells Fargo Bank (hereinafter “WFB”) is now directly compromised by Vladimir Putin of Russia. I stood up to this in the Bay Area along with very few other brave souls, but how can you go up against Wells Fargo-sponsored hatred machine, even if you had a lawyer? That’s why we need more of us speaking out about this and, more importantly, acting on this.According to very influential on Wall Street and beyond Barron’s magazine, Wells Fargo has been financing Russian military forces. Wells Fargo rented a GRU building in Moscow –why? How did Wells Fargo track down my former boss? All of this is allowed to happen because of the corrupt leaders at Wells Fargo, and those Trump-promoting politicians like Mitch McConnell and Elaine Chao, who turned their blind eyes to that, and also their determination to push an anti-LGBTQ+ agenda.Wells Fargo reduces women to our body parts, the same way the Religious Right do, and they do it openly and without consequences. And they refuse to see that they're doing Putin’s work for him. WFBank destroys Native-American lands in the Dakotas, while fleecing US taxpayers by having their HQ there in Sioux Falls, SD, to avoid paying taxes under transphobic Governor Kristy Noem, who hates trans people so much that she banned them from sports.Racists like Foley and current CEO Scharf don’t care (Scharf recently moaned about WFB “lack of black talent”; Scharf’s WASP ancestors were killing those native tribes with pleasure, nothing’s changed, only Foley and Scharf do it now through their $800-an-hour lawyers, like Hutner, Nestor, Briggs, and Lee).TERF ideology propagandist’s (Hutner, who also spews her hatred from her BERKELEY mansion, Pusey, Shor, etc.) history of hatred displays a pattern of mostly white, Christian, non-disabled, and financially stable women deploying their hatred and ignoring the needs of women of color, disabled women and trans women. Entitled privileged white boys like Foley never experience any discomfort.Let’s remember our trans sisters Claire Legato, Muhlaysia Booker, Paris Cameron, Chanel Scurlock, Zoe Spears, Tracy Single, Kiki Fantroy, and Bee Love Slater are all Black trans women who were murdered. Hundreds of transgender people have had their lives taken ruthlessly by those filled with hatred, the hatred that is professed by Hutner, Trump, McConnell, Chao, Foley, Shor, and Monasterio. 82% of them were women of color. However, this is only the number reported – the reality of the situation is likely far worse. Because if you plan on coming out as transgender in San Francisco, this horrible mistreatment awaits you. Not “gentle people”, but violence, hatred, and the bile of Trump surrogates, Putin’s enablers, and neo-Nazis like Foley, Ruffrage, Spencer, TERFs like Shor, Monasterio, Chao, and Hutner. Wells Fargo financially ruins people financially and emotionally simply for standing up for their rights. Let’s tell these white supremacists and Putin worshippers that we are onto them! Let’s take back our democracy and demand changes today!
