Hunter S. Thompson makes "Hunter" a pretty cool name
Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom and wife Jennifer Siebel announced the arrival of their new baby boy, Hunter Siebel Newsom. We hear mother and son, who was born yesterday morning, are doing well.

So congrats ... on giving him a normal name.

After Newsom and his wife named their firstborn Montana, it seems the couple decided to go with a more mainstream, trendy name. Hunter, by, the way, means "pursuer." Gavin jokes go here.

A quick Google search shows that Hunter is among one of the more desired boy names this year, making it to the No. 49 slot on popular baby names.

It never fails to amaze me just how snarky people in San Franciso are. You can't even congratulate The Lt. Gov. and his wife on the birth of they baby boy without making are hateful remark about his name NOT being weird. I hope you don't call yourself a journalisst.

I earned the Getty Oil Company shareholders 4 Billion Bucks On the Reserve acquisition; the way they treat me-- it really sucks!As the Getty inheritors bask in glee;All I asked for was that they look after me.Four billion dollars they earned on Reserve My fee I surely deserve.It turns out J.P. Getty may have been a Nazi;His family even goes back to Germany.With Hitler, Goring & Goebbels he did stand;While trying to undermine the American land!For paintings & artifacts he did receiveWith his oil he was able to deceive!Hoover & the FBI & Roosevelt they knew That J.P. Getty & espionage he drew!Many a young lad and Jew did dieAs planes dropped bombs from the sky.For years while Getty sat in BerlinHe may have committed many a sin.The ashes and smoke from the chimneys it rose While old man Getty sat cozy; he chose.With artwork held tightly under his armStill dripping in blood -- as the real owner metharm.Into the ovens & on meat-hooks, bulletsbetween the eyes Listen very carefully you can still hear theircries!While the Gettys sit in England; at their estateat WormsleyAnd Gordon sings in San Francisco  With his 727 in tow.The Getty museum sits atop Malibu While the corpses of World War 2 scream -- J.P.Getty -- We know you!

An employee at the Getty owned Pierre Hotel in New York Citywondered why there were so many Germans being hired and staying at The Pierreduring World War II.  He called the FBIand the FBI charged J.P. Getty with Espionage, FBI File 100.1202, June 26, 1940.   FBIreported in 1942; that the Getty owned Spartan Aircraft Company which was the world's largest aeronauticalschool … trained Nazis in Florida to become pilots during WWII … this after Pearl Harbor wasattacked.  43,000 people were killed inthe UK while J. Paul Getty was in Berlin still shipping oil to Hitler fivemonths before Pearl Harbor; December 7, 1941. The mother of J.P. Getty was German.


2003 documents declassified by UK Warfare Ministry reveal that inOct. 1941 the pro-Nazi Jean Paul Getty employed and lodged Nazis at his PierreHotel in New York City; Nazis who were involved in spying on and sabotagingAllied Forces’ war production plants. J.P. Getty’s eldest son; George Getty II was shuffled into the U.S. WarCrimes Department where he remained for two years after the war and eventuallycommitted suicide.

As aristocrats with treasures of art were executed -- beginning in1933 -- with the outbreak of war; Getty assiduously added to his vastcollection with the Nazis. The Ardabil carpet and Rembrandt of Marten Lootenare at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The Gainsborough of Christiepurchased in 1938 is at The Getty Museum in Los Angeles.

It was the job of the FBI in peaceand in war to root out internal enemies of the USA.  The FBI report refers to Getty’s alliancewith Göring, Goebbels & Hitler.
