    Even though the title is MISLEADING [in 2007 Andreessen was supporting Romney but after his loss Anreessen turned to Obama with less than $5,000 donation] you need to see more of Andreessen. Then you ask WHY did On2 under MF release too many deals with Chinese companoes in 2009? casp321@yahoo

    Creator of First Popular Web Browser Netscape Switches from Democrat to Republican

    March 3, 2012

    Marc Andreessen, the founder of Netscape who now runs the Silicon Valley venture capital firm Andreessen-Horowitz, has come out of the political closet and announced he's backing Mitt Romney, which puts him at odds with the generally liberal leaning of Silicon Valley.

    Andreessen – who sits on the boards of Facebook, eBay and HP - has donated $100,000 to the Romney SuperPAC. The tech biz whiz, who was a backer of Clinton and Gore in the 1990s, spoke highly of Romney during a lengthy interview on CNBC:

    Q: As a Romney backer do you think he has a better vision for the regulatory environment that would be better for Silicon Valley?

    Andreessen: "Yeah. At least so far I'm a Romney supporter in the primaries. He's a guy that is a dyed-in-the-wool-businessman. He's formed a large number of companies. He understands what it's like to be in business. Makes him attractive to people like me. I think he's got a great view on regulation.”

    But, Andreessen said, he doesn't like Romney's views on China: “He's essentially calling for a trade war. I think that's a terrible idea. I hope he stops doing that,” Andreessen told CNBC, before switching back to praising Romney's stance on regulation, calling himself “a big supporter.”

    Obama Meets With His High-Tech Money, But It’s “Not A Fundraiser”

    By Michael Scherer @michaelschererFeb. 17, 2011

    Air Force One took off at 3:20 p.m. Thursday, headed for the San Francisco Bay Area, where President Obama will dine with a high-powered group of high-tech executives to officially talk about innovation. “It’s not a fundraiser,” says White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

    But many of the invitees are among the biggest donors to President Obama and the Democratic Party. Eric Schmidt, the outgoing CEO of Google, gave $27,500 to Democratic causes in the 2010 cycle, while his wife, Wendy, gave $30,400 to the Democratic National Committee. Steve Westly, a founder of Ebay now at the Westly Group, gave $70,200 to national Democratic committees in the same time period, while Reed Hastings, the head of Netflix, gave $30,000 to the Democratic National Committee. The event host, according to the New York Times, is John Doerr, a venture capitalist who has advised the White House and who gave $59,500 to Democratic efforts in the 2010 cycle, while his wife, Ann, gave $124,400 more to Democratic candidates and committees.

    Behind the blood-stained curtains of Love
    there are fields of flowers
    where the lovers wander.
    While the mind sees only boundaries
    Love knows the secret way there.
    While the mind smells profit and quickly sets up shop
    Love sees untold of treasures far beyond.
    Lovers trust in the wealth of their hearts
    while the all-knowing mind sees only thorns ahead.

    To wander in the fields of flowers
    pull the thorns from your heart.

    Google Ventures, Kleiner Perkins And Andreessen Horowitz Team Up As “Glass Collective” To Invest In Google Glass Ecosystem

    Posted Apr 10, 2013 by Drew Olanoff
    Today, Google Ventures announced a partnership with two of the biggest technology venture capital firms in the world, Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins, on what they’re calling the “Glass Collective.” While this isn’t a fund, the three firms will be sharing seed investment dealflow for entrepreneurs and developers who are working on Google Glass software and hardware. If one firm sees an interesting opportunity, it will go to the others with it. The hope of this collective effort is to kickstart the developer ecosystem for Glass and bring it to mainstream users as soon as possible.

    Iran Letter: 165,000+ Sign Petition to Prosecute GOP Senators for Treason
    By KATELYN MARMON

    A petition on whitehouse.gov calling for charges to be filed against the 47 senators who sent an open letter to the leaders of Iran, possibly in violation of the Logan Act, has collected more than 165,000 signatures in less than two days.

Halliburton, the notorious U.S. energy company, sold key nuclear-reactor components to a private Iranian oil company called Oriental Oil Kish as recently as 2005, using offshore subsidiaries to circumvent U.S. sanctions. The story is particularly juicy because [VP Chen?y], who now claims to want to stop Iran from getting nukes, was president of Halliburton in the mid-1990s, at which time he may have advocated business dealings with Iran, in violation of U.S. law.

    Ted Cruz’s Texas two-step: Hired gun for Google

    In a little-known chapter of his career, the tea party darling intervened before his former employer on behalf of the tech giant. Was it lawyering or lobbying?

    By Luke Mullins
    March 6, 2015
    There’s no doubt that Cruz is an exceptional lawyer. He clerked for the late U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist, and Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz called him “among the smartest students I’ve ever had.” But according to McDonald of Texans for Public Justice, when it came to the Texas AG’s office, Cruz had more to offer Google than legal expertise alone. “He was buddies with the attorney general and was well-known to the staff,” McDonald said. “He’s a brilliant lawyer, but there are a lot of brilliant lawyers who didn’t get the contract to represent Google before the [Texas] attorney general.”

    Senate Candidate and Supreme Court Have a History

    By AMAN BATHEJAJULY 22, 2012

    Mr. Cruz rarely mentions his earliest appearances before the Supreme Court, which do not make for great campaign material. During his first trip there, in 2003, he argued that Texas was free to back out of a legal settlement in which it had vowed to improve health care services for poor children. The justices ruled unanimously against Texas.

    The next year, Mr. Cruz persuaded the court not to release Michael Haley, who had been sentenced to 14 years in prison for stealing a calculator from a Walmart, even though the maximum was two years under state law. Although Mr. Cruz conceded that prosecutors had erred, he argued that freeing Mr. Haley would set a precedent that could undermine the convictions of others who were unquestionably guilty.

    Ted Cruz from Wikipedia
    In 2009-2010, while working for Morgan Lewis, Cruz formed and then abandoned a bid for state attorney general when the incumbent Attorney General Greg Abbott, who hired Cruz as Solicitor General, decided to run for re-election.

    By Luke Mullins
    March 6, 2015

    When the Texas attorney general opened an investigation into Google’s alleged anticompetitive practices in 2010, the Web behemoth turned to an unlikely ally for help: tea party hero Ted Cruz.
    It all began in July 2010, when the Texas attorney general’s office sent Google a “civil investigative demand” in which it asked the company to turn over documents and respond to written questions. Attorney General Abbott had opened the investigation to determine if Google had violated state and federal antitrust laws by using its monopoly power as a general ...

    Eleven days after Abbott issued his first civil investigative demand, Cruz returned to the attorney general’s office. Only this time he wasn’t representing the people of the Lone Star State — he was representing Google. On Aug. 9, 2010, according to a Cruz spokesman and visitors’ logs for the Texas attorney general’s office, Cruz met with David Schenck, whom Abbott had recently appointed as deputy attorney general for legal counsel. Cruz was able to get in to see the new deputy attorney general before Schenck had even started his job. Schenck was appointed on Aug. 2 but didn't officially join the agency until Sept. 1, according to a 2010 press release from the attorney general’s office.

    On Aug. 24, Cruz returned to the Texas attorney general’s office with a team of Google lawyers, including Google antitrust attorneys Dana Wagner and Matthew Bye, and antitrust lawyers Susan Creighton and Renata Hesse of the Palo Alto, Calif.-based law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, according to a Cruz spokesman and the visitors’ logs. This meeting, according to the visitors’ logs, lasted roughly 10 hours.

    FTC Investigation Forced John Doerr Off The Amazon Board

    Apr. 2, 2010

    Famed venture capitalist John Doerr stepped down as a Amazon board member last month due to an FTC investigation into the ties between Google and Amazon, according to the NYT.

    John continues to serve as a board member for Google.

    The NYT speculates that increased FTC investigations into Silicon Valley companies -- which often share board member investors from their startup days -- could lead to more awkward situations.

    The New York Times “Bits” blog reports, based on unnamed sources, that a venture capitalist John Doerr, who sat on both Amazon’s and Google’s boards of directors, has chosen to resign from Amazon’s board in the wake of an FTC investigation similar to the one that caused resignations from Apple and Google’s boards last year.

    Robert Schroeder, the F.T.C.’s regional director in Seattle, where Amazon is based, declined to discuss specific companies but said, “We have an interest in making sure companies are complying with the Clayton Antitrust Act.”

    Obama dines with tech stars of Silicon Valley

    PRESIDENTIAL VISIT

    By Carla Marinucci

    Published 4:00 am, Friday, February 18, 2011

    President Obama - on his first official trip to the Bay Area that didn't involve political fundraising - held a dinner meeting Thursday to talk job creation and education with a star-studded team of Silicon Valley executives and leaders, many of them past generous contributors to Democratic causes.

    Crowds lined the streets in tiny downtown Woodside, waving and cheering encouragement as the president's motorcade passed through on its way to the secluded estate of star Silicon Valley venture capitalist John Doerr and his wife, Ann, who have both been ranked among the country's most deep-pocketed political donors.
