Fracking invades the Everglades. A fact! Cloning Galinda tells you what will happen.

Posted by jsmolders - July 11th, 2018

Read CLONING GALINDA, an ecothriller that describes grippingly what can happen when big oil attacks a town. “A cracking read… Bluebell Review… Not only is fracking a subject close to my heart but Jan Smolder’s cracking tale more than does justice to this one, and held my attention from start to finish. The residents of Noredge, Ohio, are largely divided into those who oppose fracking and those, whether from need or greed, accept the company, Supren’s, money in exchange for allowing the noisy and dangerous machinery to move into their properties to search for oil. Although comprising a large cast, built around Mary Jenkins (vehemently oppose to fracking), I had no difficulty in following the characters and their absorbing relationships, in the exciting twists and turns of the plot. References to Rodin’s ‘Thinker’ and Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony add a welcome cultured touch – this is a far cry from ‘red neck’ territory.
We are cleverly kept guessing as to the identity of Galinda but I found the eventual answer well worth the wait. A cracking read!!”PICT07132014-finalist-sticker-200

Trump taking children hostage. Violating international and US law.

Posted by jsmolders - July 4th, 2018

At the US-Mexico border Trump takes away children from their parents,  Central-American (Honduran, Salvadoran, Guatemalan) refugees running for their lives. The children are sent away to Michigan, New York etc. Then Trump forces those refugees, parents, to SIGN AWAY THEIR LEGAL RIGHT to the asylum process if they want to be reunited with their children.

These asylum seekers are FLEEING from murderous (mostly)drug-dealing gangs. US citizens are  major buyers of the gangsters’ product and contributors to the problems in Central America.

IMMORAL! STOP LYING! The White house is irreversibly damaging innocent children. USING THE BIBLE AS EXCUSE.

Posted by jsmolders - June 18th, 2018

This cruel policy, not a law, can be reversed by one simple Trump phone call. (I quote GOP Senator Lindsey Graham.) Trump holds the mental health of thousands of innocent children hostage for a wall and restrictions on legal immigration. Seeking asylum is NOT a crime.

The “justification” for his actions: the Bible! A tool used for centuries to justify slavery. SLAVERY!

Shame on lying officials and their sycophants.

Professionele recensenten noemen Oogst van Oorlog een aangrijpend drama.

The Everglades VIOLATED

Posted by jsmolders - June 13th, 2018

Florida’s most precious  treasure, the Everglades sanctuary, risks ruin by oil giants who have no concern about the violation of natural beauty and its inhabitants. “Cloning Galinda,” my latest novel, describes heart wrenching situations brought on by the oil and gas industry in Ohio.
