That Rhodes name, keeps popping up in history. It follows the diamond trail to Africa, Cecil Rhodes, Rothchild and diamonds. It has also popped up with William Rhodes Davis, WW2 and Hitler. Then take the son of William Rhodes Davis who had to step down as Governor of California due to a scandal involving ENRON. His name is Gray Davis (Graham):
Cecil John Rhodes PC, DCL (5 July 1853 – 26 March 1902) was an English-born South African businessman, mining magnate, and politician. He was the founder of the diamond company De Beers, which today markets 40% of the world’s rough diamonds and at one time marketed 90%. An ardent believer in British colonialism, he was the founder of the southern African territory of Rhodesia, which was named after him in 1895. In 1964, Northern Rhodesia became the independent state of Zambia and Southern Rhodesia was thereafter known simply as Rhodesia. In 1980, Rhodesia, which had been de facto independent since 1965, became a recognised independent country, renamed Zimbabwe. South Africa’s Rhodes University is also named after Rhodes. He set up the provisions of the Rhodes Scholarship, which is funded by his estate.
Historian Richard A. McFarlane has called Rhodes “as integral a participant in southern African and British imperial history as George Washington or Abraham Lincoln are in their respective eras in United States history… Most histories of South Africa covering the last decades of the nineteenth century are contributions to the historiography of Cecil Rhodes.
His brother’s name is CURRY, like Leona McCurry in the Obama family tree. There are people in Africa named Davis, and they have a rose farm so I must wonder…
Now comes a Ben Rhodes, and a scandal in the White House which not so many days ago had smoke billowing out a window with a fire. Is the White House too hot ? Drills, dead people, Benghazi, cover up and dead people, IRS targeting people ? Who did this ? Press played with, phone records ? Who did this ?
The 2010 Austin suicide attack occurred on February 18, 2010, when Andrew Joseph Stack III, flying his Piper Dakota, crashed into Building I of the Echelon office complex in Austin, Texas, United States, killing himself and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) manager Vernon Hunter. Thirteen others were injured, two seriously. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) field office was located in a four-story office building, along with other state and federal government agencies and some private businesses on the first floor. Prior to the crash, Stack had posted a suicide note referring to “greed” with the IRS, dated February 18, 2010, to his business website.
Joseph Stack was suspected of setting fire, that morning, to his two-storey North Austin house, which was mostly destroyed, but no others. In the aftermath, people debated the policies of the IRS and appropriate forms of protest. The building was repaired by December 2011. As an impact of the 2010 Austin attack, the IRS spent more than $38.6 million with $6.4 million spent to recover and resume work at the building, and over $32 million spent to increase security at other IRS sites in the U.S. However, the spending on security changes was questioned as being ineffective.

Isaac Davis had been one of Kamehameha’s closest friends advisor. His death was a great shock to Kamehameha and cast a dark shadow over the satisfaction which the King must have felt with the peaceful settlement with the king of Kauaʻi.
His nephew John Davis came to Hawaii in 1810 trying to find his uncle. John stayed and married a Hawaiian noble woman named Kauweʻa kanoaʻakaka wale no haleakala kaʻuwe kekiniʻokoolau. They had a daughter named Eliza Davis (1821–1912) who had daughters Hannah (1855–1938) and Mary with husband William Johnson (?–1863). Eliza later married William Roy (?–1905), Hannah Johnson would marry son of missionary John Davis Paris (1809–1892), and Mary would marry Hilo businessman William Herbert Shipman (1854–1943).

Nayef bin Abdulaziz Al Saud (Arabic: نايف بن عبد العزيز آل سعود, Nāyif bin ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ʾĀl Saʿūd), also spelled Naif (1934 – 16 June 2012), was the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia as well as first deputy prime minister from 2011 to 2012. He was also minister of interior from 1975 to 2012.
From 1952 to 1953, Prince Nayef served as vice governor of Riyadh Province. In 1953, he was appointed as the governor of Riyadh province. He stayed in this post for one year. Then he served as governor of Madinah province. In 1970, King Faisal appointed him to both deputy interior minister and minister of state for internal affairs.
Minister of Interior
In December 1994, he ordered hundreds of terrorism-related arrests with the support of Prince Turki, head of Saudi intelligence services.
In April 2001, he, not foreign minister Saud al Faisal, went to Iran as Saudi envoy in an unprecedented move. He issued all women in Saudi Arabia identity cards. Women were previously registered under their husband’s or father’s name in November 2001. After the September 11 attacks, he received US criticism for not undertaking sufficient action against extremists.
In 2003, Prince Nayef, who was in charge of foreign labor, decreed that foreign workers and their family members should not exceed 20 percent of the Saudi population in 2013. Senator Charles Schumer lobbied through Prince Bandar to remove Prince Nayef as Minister of Interior in July 2003.
Between 2003 and 2006, he led Saudi Arabia’s confrontation against Al Qaeda, which sponsored a series of domestic attacks on expatriate housing compounds, oil infrastructure, and industrial facilities. His political stance was strengthened because of increased media exposure and the successful end to terrorist attacks.

In March 2011, during the 2011 Saudi Arabian protests, 200 people who called for more information on their imprisoned relatives were denied a meeting with Nayef.
Second deputy prime minister
Since Crown Prince Sultan could not deal with demanding duties due to his extended absences for treatment and King Abdullah was about to travel to Doha to attend the League of Arab States Summit before going to London for the G20 summit, it was imperative to leave a senior official in charge, which added burdens to the leukemia-suffering 76-year-old Nayef. Therefore, on 27 March 2009, Prince Nayef became second deputy prime minister. His appointment caused a rare public split in the royal family. Prince Talal asked the King to clarify that the appointment did not necessarily mean that Nayef would become Crown Prince.
His appointment as second deputy prime minister expanded Prince Nayef’s influence into all corners of Saudi domestic policy and allowed him to participate in the development of foreign policy. He was not expected to interfere in economic matters, but to influence the judiciary.
Prince Nayef chaired many cabinet meetings when King Abdullah and Crown Prince Sultan were away for health reasons. Critics said he was behind the cancellation of the nation’s only film festival in the summer of 2009. In November 2010, he undertook all Hajj-related responsibilities. In some government offices, his picture was added next to King Abdulaziz, King Abdullah, and Crown Prince Sultan.
Crown Prince and first deputy prime minister
Prince Nayef was appointed Crown Prince and first deputy prime minister by King Abdullah on 27 October 2011, five days after the death of his full brother, Prince Sultan. During his time as Crown Prince, Nayef brought about modernizations such as “removing religious authorities who objected to the mingling of men and women in public spaces.”
Prince Nayef’s career was propelled by his full-brother King Fahd. Under Fahd, the ministry of interior became one of the most influential bureaucracies in Saudi Arabia. Prince Nayef served as a mediator in disputes between King Fahd and Prince Sultan. As King Fahd’s health deteriorated, his power gradually diminished as well. As Crown Prince, Prince Nayef was the most influential of the Sudairi Seven. He delegated the day-to-day responsibilities of his ministry to his son, Prince Muhammad and then-deputy minister Prince Ahmed. Prince Nayef had members of the ministry of interior placed in all overseas embassies.
In 2003, he “threatened to cancel certain business deals with the French government” if the narcotics investigation of Nayef bin Sultan bin Fawwaz al-Shaalan continued.

As a cricketer, George Mann was a right-handed middle-order batsman. His father, Frank Mann, also captained England, making them the first father and son to both captain England. Colin and Chris Cowdrey are the only other father and son to have done this for England.
Mann captained England in each of his seven Test matches, winning two, and drawing the other five; his father had also been captain in every Test he played in. Wisden said of Mann: “as a captain he was ideal, zealous to a degree, and considerate in all things at all times”. After leading England in South Africa in 1948/49, Mann led his side for two Tests in the following summer, before he stood down, citing inability to participate regularly due to his family’s brewing business commitments (Mann, Crossman & Paulin). Mann was a main board director and retained his position on the new company board when the brewery merged with Watney Combe & Reid in 1958.
F.G. Mann was chairman of the Test and County Cricket Board (TCCB) from 1978–83; most notably during the controversy over the rebel tour which Geoff Boycott and Graham Gooch led to South Africa in 1982.
