Who I am: My name is Grant J. Kidney. I’m a graphic designer, content creator and political commentator.
What I do: I am currently focused on building and maintaining infrastructure of a creative brand known as ‘VRIL’, which runs the gamut of graphic design and politics. I create independent media and offer political commentary across a wide spectrum of social platforms.

Deep intel: In 2008, I launched ‘The Grant J. Kidney Revolution’. This was a part serious, part satirical platform from which I could communicate political thoughts and ideas. I had attracted a huge following on the now defunct MySpace.com. At about this juncture, I self published my first book. The work has since been retired.
When I first set foot into politics, I was very right wing, despite splashes of satire deliberately interspersed into my content. Ultimately though, I fell prey to a form of left wing socialism as preached by the ‘Zeitgeist movement’.
In 2011, I rebranded as a ‘Zeitgeister’, and started approaching the issues from a newfound, socialist perspective. Even at this time I had kept a regularly updated blog. I also did interviews with several interesting people including filmmaker Peter Joseph, futurist Jacque Fresco and documentarian, Holland Van Den Nieuwenhof.
The large body of work I conducted in the aforementioned era was totally scrubbed from the web when I decided that I no longer felt intrigued by politics. I wanted out. So in 2013, I pulled the plug on all political pursuits.
From 2013 onward, I became heavily involved in business. I launched my own graphic design venture called Vril Studio and ultimately partnered with and did work for several large companies including the Elon Musk inspired Hyperloop startup.
After a series of transformative events, I no longer held to left-wing, socialist ideology. Instead, I was swiftly returning to a right leaning perspective.
By 2015, Donald Trump announced that he was running for President. This event alone is what reawakened me to the political world. At this point I began actively participating in the 2016 election cycle. When Trump finally won the presidency, I felt proud knowing that I had played a role in the re-shaping of America.
From 2015 through early 2018, I had built an impressive social media presence with many thousands of followers. On Twitter, I had once accumulated 13 million impressions in the span of 28 days. I was followed by very big names and retweeted many times by personalities like journalist Mike Cernovich and author Dinesh D’souza.
In April 2018, I decided to retire from political endeavors and to focus instead on building my creative brand. I took a very large break from politics at this juncture, but after much contemplation, I decided to re-enter the political arena.
In July 2018, I reaffirmed a commitment that I will run for Congress in 2020 on a pro-MAGA platform.
