Grayson Wolfe and the Valley of the Neocons

Grayson Wolfe is ex-husband of Jill Kelley's unstable sister, Natalie. Grayson Wolfe is founding partner Akkadian Private Ventures, LLC, and was a Bush appointee in Iraq reconsruction.

When Reuters reporter went to Akkadian Private Ventures office to speak to them, lo and behold, it was not there.

Wolfe could not be immediately located for comment.
His LinkedIn profile identifies him as a founding partner of Akkadian Private Ventures, but when a Reuters reporter went to a Washington address listed for the firm, it was occupied by an unrelated private residence.


Who is Managing Director of Akkadian Private Ventures? Ross J. Connelly. Connelly was CEO of Bechtel Energy Resources Corp. from 1991 to 1995, overseeing the start up of the company and various developmental efforts in the United States, United Kingdom, Russia, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. In 1998 he ran for U.S. Congress in Maine’s 1st Congressional District and subsequently served as Maine State Chairman for “Bush for President” campaign.

Bechtel, a company with longstanding ties to the Republican party, was awarded contracts for rebuilding the Iraqi infrastructure, worth up to $680 million.

Many years ago, I knew a little about the defense and national security-related industry.

We are much more sophisticated than welfare queens or those in 47% that receive Fed benefits, handouts.

We are more educated. We write better. A lot better. Our proposals read great and are filled with hot ideas "du jour" with convincing arguments, details.

We don't ask for nickel and dime. We go for millions, 100 millions, and billions worth of contract.
We have sophisticated network of connection. We don't go to a government office and sit, fill out form, take a number and wait.

We have people making phone calls, people talking with members of Congress, Senate. We have nice meeting and presentations. We have lavish party, junkets.

Nobody ever looks down on us. There are complaints occasionally from the left, but we look down on them. The RW loves us.

Lesson: if you try to get Government dole from tax payers' money, it's better to do it our style. We get a lot of tax payer money while having fun doing it. And have fun also after get it.

sure does sound suspiciously like a front. Especially given the results of the subsequent search of the place.

Recommend this. Send it to friends and family. The media will never cover it, but it but it needs distribution through any means necessary.

Try again tomorrow with a sexier title that might catch attention. Something along the lines of "How the Twins Infiltrated the Neocon World." Not that exact wording, but the heading now doesn't lead the reader to the shattering nature of the revelation. After all, this is a huge deal.
