    PS The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth

    Psalms 25:8 Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
    9 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
    Psalms 25:12 What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
    13 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.

    Psalms 37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
    8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
    9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
    10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
    11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

    Psalms 37:18 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
    Psalms 37:22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

    Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

    The BIGGER questions are about the background checkers . His goose is cooked, now — on to the selectors .
    -------
    Correct. An A+ for you.

    And after the "selectors" -- the handlers (aka: Jeb et al is my prediction).

    Glad to know you believe this fake's goose should be cooked! I hope so, too! (And I believe all Americans with even just a shred of honesty would agree.)

    And BTW, it is indeed just a wild guess on my part that perhaps, if there is indeed a conspiracy, and if indeed anyone at that university is charged, or if Alex Kemos is charged, that yes - they might be interested in cooperating to shave off some jail time threatened, should they ever find themselves threatened with up to 50 years in prison and 20 criminal counts like the 23-year old student whose alleged crimes did not even involve any Stolen Valor violation or the alleged theft of $300K taxpayer money. This kid allegedly stole a fraction of the money Kemos got, and this kid is looking at up to 50 years in jail -- that's a fact.

    Again, good luck!

    Well, here's a fact for you -- Jeb and his father and his brother probably won't put out a press release announcing they got busted for their scheme, if indeed it was them or any one or two of them behind this. So, you're gonna be waiting a long time if that's the kind of fact you're looking for.

    And if you're looking for any university officials who may be involved to likewise announce their involvement to the world, that would probably be a long wait as well.

    But the Stolen Valor guys at Stolenvalor.com didn't have any hesitation about including Alex Kemos on their "ecured Targets" list.

    And the 23 year-old student who allegedly faked his way into Harvard and allegedly stole $45,000 in financial aid monies is facing 20 criminal counts and up to 50 years in prison right now.

    So, here is what I am speculating: if by chance any one else at that university, along with ALex Kemos, ever gets charged with any crimes -- for allegedly stealing $300,000 in taxpayer funded salary, violating Stolen Valor, etc -- they might want to shave off some jail time and cooperate with authorities. At that point, should that point ever arrive, perhaps you will get some additional information about any other co-conspirators.

    In the meantime, here is a news article about the 23-year old who is facing up to 50 years in prison --

    Adam Wheeler the mind behind the Harvard Hoax charged with larceny and identity fraud

    I don't know if the law only applies to the Little People like this kid, or if Alex Kemos or Alex Kemos & Company if there is such will ever face this kind of potential punishment. We'll see.

    Good luck.

    I am sure you have it in you to apologize to me, even if you didn’t.

    And, again, I do hope this guy fries. And gets jail time for pretending to students he was a Navy SEAL, and all the wrongs he did, whether on his own — which I doubt — or with others, and regardless of who they may be (or not be).

    PS As I already posted:

    If you google “bush” and “kemos” and “china” here is what comes up:

    [PDF]
    George Bush China-U.S. Relations Conference: Development, Energy ...
    File Format: PDF/Adobe Acrobat - Quick View
    George Bush China-U.S. Relations Conference: Development, Energy, and Security ... Dr. Alexander Kemos, Partner, Nordic-American Corporate Development and ...
    china-us.tamu.edu/.../Agriculture-20Forum-20Final-20Report.pdf - Similar

    If you go to page 2 of this offical TAMU doc about a 2007 conference in DC with Chinese officials, here is what you’ll find —

    “Dr. Alexander Kemos, Partner, Nordic-American Corporate Development and
    Finance Company, gave the second lead presentation titled “The Political Economy of Food
    Safety Infrastructure and Economics in China.” He advised the U.S. stakeholders to avoid
    project mirror images onto the receiving end in China. Dr. Kemos emphasized the importance
    of acculturation and mutual understanding as the key to successful collaboration.”

    —and bear in mind the “Dr” part of that “Dr” Kemos is a fake.

    PS “You simply don’t have the dignity to admit when you are wrong.”

    I was wrong to support Jeb Bush at one time. I admit it. Are you happy now?

    BTW, I have my dignity. And I never claimed to be a Navy SEAL. What this jerk Kemos did is just pathetic.

    And I am sure - sure - he did not do it all by his little lonesome self. No one pulls out fake details about the Navy SEALS like he did on his resume.

    I know that link was on my post. I am not familiar with what you posted being linked on the article or linked to it. Who knows what that email is. I certainly don’t know.

    Re: “people” could not accept he won.

    And actually what I meant to say is this: it was the politicians who could not handle it. But the people did vote for him and he beat a judge I think I read.

    As for Kemos, I read all the articles, several times. I hope he fries. Along with those who wrote his fake Navy SEAL details on his resume.

    I posted that for you. That is some piece of creating writing.

    And his fake mentoring of students, who wanted to be Navy SEALS, was really heinous, IMO.

    Anyway, good night!

    “Who’s going to get a job teaching at Harvard without advanced degrees?!”

    While you are a student, you can teach. He did not finish any advanced degrees, but apparently taught as a student while enrolled in a program.

    Like I said, we’ll see what happens.

    I think you’ll be surprised at the facts in this matter, if all the facts ever come out.

    And I do think he was being groomed to be Jeb’s VP running mate. But, he got busted. He’s outed as a fake.

    I’m wondering if he is CIA, too. But frankly, I don’t care. He had no business pretending to be a Navy SEAL.

    And no business pretending to have the public trust at a public university. But the jerks who run that school don’t seem to care much about students or the faculty; politics reigns supreme.

    Anyway, enough for me. I don’t know much about the guy who just won in South Carolina - Marvin Gay or Al Green or whatever his name may be, but I thought it quite interesting that because he is unemployed military, and was unknown prior to his win, people could not accept he won.
    I think more unknown people should run for office. Enough dynansties already. Enough politicians. Enough.

    Re: “I speculate he [GH] would never knowingly support a fake Navy Seal nor would GW.”

    You can speculate all you want.

    I disagree with you. GH and GW and Jeb are politicians, first and foremost. Sticking a fake military honor on someone they want to put forth to the public as a candidate is not beneath them, is now my opinion. Is it terrible to think that? Yes, it is shocking, and shocking to me, too.
    I guess it’s the same way one feels to learn that some priests or rabbis molest children, or some lawyers are frauds, or some bankers steal, judges lie, etc etc.

    BTW, some school janitors are not checked out so well; it depends on the school, the situation, etc.

    But these frauds - like this guy - receive less checking when they are installed primarily for political reasons.
    It’s shocking what can go in education, that’s for sure. It can be political beyond belief because it involved the public trust, and there is nothing a politician wants more than to gain the public trust.

    I have learned that, too.

    Re: “Jeb graduated in 73, married in 74 and first child born in 76.”

    I a, not interested in attempting to look up dates right now or correcting you if you’re wrong, but I will tell you a true and funny story. When he was governor, I noticed that online in various info at the governor website of Florida, he had not one, but two different years he claimed he was married.

    I emailed him and suggested he pick one of the two different years as his marriage date - and stick with it.

    That is a true story.

    Frankly, at this point, it would not surprise me if he never got officially married, and they are just common law husband and wife.

    Just my guess; I could be wrong but - it would not surprise me if there was actually no official marriage certificate.

    Jeb and his father are not big on official documentation, is what I have come to learn.

    If you mean speculations on Jeb Bush not actually completing the coursework required for his 4-year degree, that source is my own analysis, based on the fact he worked out of the country immediately upon graduating in a bank — so, it would seem: yes, he did complete the course requirements since a bank accepted his degree though the bank was in Latin American.

    But now, it seems to me: his father got him that job, and so, unlike others who get their girlfriend pregnant while in college — if indeed that is what happened, and I certainly don’t know if it did — Jeb Bush did not have to drop out. He simply cut short his college career, maybe his father got the college to hand him a degree despite not having done the coursework, and off Jeb Bush goes to Latin American courtesy of his father, to work in a bank, since: his degree is in Latin American Studies. So, now:

    it doesn’t look like he dropped out, or had to drop out; it looks like: he was just such a genius he finished in only 2-1/2 years instead of 4.

    But is that really what happened? That is my speculation, a question. Which scenario is what actually happened?

    And my only answer is this: I would not be surprised, now, if he was missing 1-1/2 years of coursework in his degree; I don’t know if he is or not; I would just not be surprised, now, is my point.

    He’s been in politics for over 12 yrs - I’m sure his background has been checked and re-checked


    It would not surprise me if no reporter has ever thought to ask to see his college transcript.

    After he graduated - and he graduated in only 2-1/2 years so I doubt any distinction such as what you mention exists - he “proved” his degree in Latin American Studies by: working in Latin America, with money (at a bank).

    So, I bet you: no one ever thought to check his transcripts out because of the fact he had the above job right out of college.

    Again, it would not surprise me if his degree is missing 1-1/2 years of required coursework.

    And, again — I don’t that to be true, but it would not surprise me now, at all, if it was true.

    In any event, what happen with this 3rd highest ranking administrator at Texas A&M University, being a fake, who admitted it, is still, as you put it, “stunning.”

    I agree. I am amazed he was outed as a fake SEAL and is no longer employed there. Other fakes last much longer, ripping off the taxpayer and telling lies to students. Though Kemos’ lies were very brazen, and, frankly, downright cruel in my view.

    Or move to Pakistan -- Alex Kemos, BS in Fake, will fit right in:

    Fake degree scandal roils Pakistani politics - AP via statesman.com June 29, 2010 -- Excerpt:

    ISLAMABAD — Scores of Pakistani lawmakers may lose their seats for allegedly lying about their academic credentials, a growing scandal that adds to the woes of the U.S.-backed leadership as it struggles with Islamist militancy and a weak economy.

    What began as accusations against a handful of lawmakers has mushroomed into formal legal challenges against up to 160 elected officials — more than 10 percent of the country's federal and provincial legislators. Many are said to have claimed fake degrees to meet a previous requirement for holding office.

    The Supreme Court has ordered the Elections Commission to vet the credentials of nearly all of the some 1,100 federal and provincial lawmakers. If enough lawmakers are found ineligible, there are rumblings that a midterm election may be needed.

    The scandal has drawn some frustrated reactions from lawmakers besieged by an aggressive media.

    "A degree is a degree! Whether fake or genuine, it's a degree! It makes no difference!" Baluchistan province chief minister Nawab Aslam Raisani, who claims a master's in political science, shouted at a gaggle of reporters Tuesday....

    And BTW there is already jail time in that Stolen Valor Act federal law; and if ever a case deserved prosecution, I would say this case, re Kemos, is such a case. Violating not only that law, but the public trust, firing people, hauling out taxpayer money, and telling lies to students.

    Re what you wrote: “A Superior Court judge in Los Angeles lost his job and was disbarred b/c of fake academic and military claims.”

    I hate to say this, but it does not surprise me. It is very difficult to get people to do their jobs, like check credentials. “Oh, he’s a JUDGE, no need to check anything” is what they think. But I think differently, after seeing this kind of cr*p for the past 25 years.

    Jeb Bush claims he has a 4-year degree from a university in Texas that he managed to get in only 2-1/2 years. While I have no doubt some people can in fact do work in a short time span, I would not be surprised to discover if 1-1/2 years of required coursework is omitted from his degree, and they just gave it to him anyway, because he got his girlfriend pregnant at the time and then married her. Something like that. And maybe that is why he knew he could never pursue an advanced degree; because then the fraud would be discovered.

    I don’t know if that is what happened; I’m just saying: it would not surprise me in the least if in fact that was true.

    So your claim does not surprise me either, re the judge.

    What is so disappointing is that people are out there who do work very hard for their degrees, who do believe it is a stepping stone, but, in this country: fraud has replaced honest, hard work as the stepping stone, and it just happens too often.

    That needs to stop. It is a waste of the real talent in this country, to keep such talented people down, down, down because you found a fraud you can control and you own the media and/or law enforcement as well.

    It is a shame. Really a shame. And people who participate in that kind of white collar crime need to go to jail for very long periods of time. Even if they are judges, former governors, and dare I say it, and yes I will, former presidents. It is a terrible thing to do to honest hardworking citizens of this country, to deny opportunity because you need to have your fake in there instead of a qualified person.

    Obviously, that judge is compromised. Who knows why he makes the rulings he does; he needs to keep his secret first and foremost.

    Obviously, that TAMU administrator is compromised, and he fired people, too.

    How would you like to lose your job because a fake fired you?

    Not good what is happening with respect to this kind of fraud. Not good at all.

    We need to toughen up laws and sentence people to jail who violate The Stolen Valor Act and fraudulently haul off with hundreds of thousands or millions in taxpayer loot.

    Hope someone who cares about the military, honest taxpayers and students is reading this and waking up.

    Here is the fiction on his resume (linked below the article I posted on the original newspaper web site) -- lots of fake details for someone who has no military background:

    --------------

    1/1982 ‐ 5/1987 

    Naval Special Warfare Group Two, Little Creek, VA  United  States  Navy  SEAL  Team  Two  Platoon  Leader  and  Operations  Officer. 

    Graduate  of  BUD/S  Class  93.  Organize  and  execute  small  unit  operations  in  support  of  Naval  Special  Warfare  missions  and  imperatives.  Deployments  in 

    Middle East and North Africa; including United Nations Forces in Lebanon (1983‐ 1984).    Selected  for  Arabic  Language  Training  at  Defense  Language  Institute  Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC), Monterey California.

       ----------

    BTW, the last time I looked, the Stolen Valor guys' web site had this Kemos listed as a "secured target."

    From StolenValor.com --

    Top-level A&M official resigns amid questions over credentials

    Alexander Kemos
    " ...Alexander Kemos never was part of the elite fighting force, and Texas A&M officials confirmed Friday that he doesn't have a doctorate or even a master's degree, which was a posted requirement for the $300,000-a-year position..."
    Update July 1, 2010:
    Loftin details Kemos betrayal
    Source: http://www.theeagle.com/am/Kemos-resigns-amid-scandal
    Date added: July 01, 2010


    These Stolen Valor guys' included another thread, "Loftin Details Kemos Betrayal" which concerns the TAMU president's blathering story trying to distance himself from this fraud, but his story doesn't hold water. I think maybe the Stolen Valor guys believe he is guilty, too, and I would agree with them 100% if they included that thread on their site because they want to go after both Kemos and Loftin, the TAMU president.

    But I also believe: this university president did not, all by his little lonesome self, go out there to find a fraud with two fake degrees and some fake Navy SEAL experience to hire. Oh no. I think this conspiracy, if that is indeed what it is, is a whole lot bigger and involved a lot more.

    And it is just so odious. So heinous to do that to students and to disrespect both the students, the faculty, the university, and, of course, all the brave men and women who do serve in the military, and the brave men who are indeed Navy SEALS.
    Prison time for all those fakes in this conspiracy. All of the ones who engineered this fake's entry into TAMU and collected $300,000 in taxpayer money, too. Just heinous.

    Thank you for letting me scream about this to you. A fraud is a fraud is a fraud. Jail time for the little people means jail time for him, too, is my opinion. I am glad others here agree.

    ...However, at Texas A&M -- known for its military history and its reverence toward veterans -- Kemos mentored prospective SEALs, told detailed stories about his supposed exploits during his time with the elite fighting unit, and in April even spoke at a dinner for cadets about ethical dilemmas he faced while he was a SEAL, students said in interviews with The Eagle.

    "These people are my heroes, my role models. That's what I want to be, and he just lied about it -- that's what made me the angriest," said Jeff Legg, who graduated from Texas A&M in December and is now in Coronado, Calif., training to be a SEAL. "I know people make mistakes, but this was one well-thought-out mistake."

    Legg had met with Kemos and requested a letter of recommendation from him for SEAL training. Kemos agreed but kept delaying, and never sent the letter, Legg said.

    "He said he was being considered for a job to go back as a captain or some B.S. like that," Legg said. "So he couldn't write a letter because it would be bias or something like that. He sounded credible at the time."

    Adam Unger, the commanding officer for student group SEAL Platoon within the Corps of Cadets, was upset at Kemos, he said. But most of all, he said, he found the situation funny.

    That's because he thought of Michael Johnson, who has graduated but was a member of the platoon last year. Johnson was playfully brushed off by the group because of a belief he disclosed to them following a brief interaction with Kemos: The guy was faking.

    "He was trying too hard and using terminology from books," Unger said, explaining Johnson's views. Johnson, who is currently in Navy boot camp north of Chicago, could not be reached for this story.

    The conviction became a running joke among the platoon, but no one ever thought to alert anyone, Unger said. Officials have not said how Loftin found out about questions regarding Kemos. The Eagle had been looking into Kemos' background weeks before his resignation and was preparing a story, but the newspaper had not alerted Texas A&M officials as of June 17, the day Loftin said he confronted Kemos.

    If you look this fake up on zabasearch.com, you’ll find he lives in Kennebunkport, home of GH Bush.

    If you know anything about Texas A&M, and I will guess you do, you know it is the home of the GW Bush Library.

    So, I would say: there is one direct connection since he was a featured speaker at a conference hosted by then President Bush, and two indirect connections, in light of the particular university and his place of residence.

    It is not always that simple for many reasons, but here is just one: the university is trying to claim they never check nor ask for degree transcripts for administrative and staff jobs (only for faculty teaching jobs). Others at that university say that is a lie, and those jobs required transcripts too, but they didn’t require any for this fake.

    I seem to recall some schools have the above policy, or did before 9/11 but then changed it, or, had it but - it did not apply if you were applying for a job where you would be signing documents for the university and making more than $100K per year or something. In which case - this fake’s transcripts should have been required.

    I just want to add this: this story is really irksome to me on many levels, but one is how this fake mentored students who wanted to apply for the Navy SEAL program, and was a fake mentor. He would tell them fake stories about his fake exploits, according to students quoted in another article about this matter. That just makes my skin craw, it is so creepy and odious.

    And, of course, the fake mentor Kemos was not able to write recommendation letters for these very real TAMU students who wanted to become Navy SEAL because: Kemos knew he, Kemos, was a fake and by writing such letters he might get caught.

    This kind of fraud just makes me want to scream. It should be on the front page of every newspaper.

    How do we improve education in this country? Well, for one, get rid of fake Navy SEALS in universities who cost taxpayers $300,000 — and maybe respect the students enought to hire real mentors. Ever think of that?

    Just makes me want to shriek. And I am sure Jeb and his father and brother all thought this was fine — just shove our fake SEAL in that university so he can fake his way and get some real experience and real university salary and real public trust credentials by working at a public university — and the h*ll with the students and faculty and everyone else there.

    It just makes me want to scream.

    Do you think this guy should be prosecuted for violating the Stolen Valor Act? And for stealing $300,000 from taxpayers in his salary, which he was actually ineligible to receive as he claimed two fake advanced degrees?

    There is currently a 23 year-old student, Adama Wheeler, facing prosecution for 20 criminal counts and 50 years in jail, for allegedly faking his way into Harvard and allegedly stealing $45,000. Does the law only apply to the Little People? Or does it apply to fake "Dr" Kemos, too?

    The fake Navy SEAL experience claimed by Kemos to Teas A&M is in his resume linked at the end of the posted article.

    In addition, another article about his fake military service is here:

    A&M administrator lied about military service

    BTW, according to a google search, this Kemos worked for GW Bush in 2007, representing him as an expert to China. In addition, according to zabasearch.com, this Kemos lives in Kennebunkport, Maine, which is where GH Bush resides.

    I think this Kemos was being prepped for a run as Jeb's VP with his fake credentials and his top job at Texas A&M.

    In recent years I have decided I am no longer any fan of Jeb Bush. For many reasons, I now think Jeb is a crook. Just my opinion.

    Well, I took the time to update my profile here today, added my favorite quote about Einstein on my profile page, and reread what I wrote earlier on this thread about
    Jeb Bush (”In my current opinion...”) — as I found myself thinking about FR the other day.

    Maybe the “serious concern” I mentioned in my last post here was a crime not committed by the person I initially thought must have committed such.

    Or maybe such situations just can’t be addressed because of other reasons.

    Who really knows why certain things happen or don’t happen?

    Or maybe Jeb Bush wanted to do something about it, but it was too late or he couldn’t. Or perhaps there was some other reason.

    In any event, I know right now he publicly says he is retired from politics — however, people can and do change their minds about future plans.

    Consequently, if he should change his mind and want to come back to public life, he would probably want the support of his base here on FR.

    So, if you are someone here on FR reading this, just remember: you should make up your own mind about a candidate.

    Sometimes we grow wiser, sometimes not; sometimes we think we understand more, and sometimes we do not.

    But, I certainly don’t know everything.

    And, to Jeb Bush, if you are reading this: I am sorry — maybe there was a lot more to it than I recognized at the time. I certainly don’t know everything.

    In my current opinion: Jeb Bush should not be elected to any office ever again. He does not deserve the public trust.

    I am sorry to say this, but I was deceived by him. I only found out after he left office and did not address a serious concern he knew I had for a long time, about criminal conduct I reported to him. Instead of doing something about it, his brother fired all those US attorneys. Again, I am sorry to tell you all this.

    Here is my parody site about the Bushes, and again, I sincerely hope no one from this site votes for any of them again. Surely there are better people to represent a conservative point of view, as I believe such a view does include respect for the law:
