Jeb Bush, the Mexican Drug Cartel and “Free Trade”. The Bush Family and Organized Crime

Source: Global Research Jeb Bush is a presidential candidate. But Jeb is not only the brother of George W. and the son of George H. W. Bush. Jeb Bush also had close personal ties to Raul Salinas de Gortiari, brother of Mexico’s former president Carlos Salinas de Gortiari. In the 1990s, Raul the “drug kingpin”, according to Switzerland’s federal prosecutor Carla del Ponte, was one of the main figures of the Mexican Drug Cartel. Jeb Bush –before becoming Governor of the Sunshine State– was a close friend of Raul Salinas de Gortiari (image right): “There has also been a great deal of speculation in Mexico about the exact nature of Raul Salinas’ close friendship with former President George Bush’s son, Jeb. It is well known here that for many years the two families spent vacations together — the Salinases at Jeb Bush’s home in Miami, the Bushes at Raul’s […] Read More

2001: ‘Secret’ Rome Meeting Recounted by AIPAC Spy Case Figure

A few years back Sheryl Crow recorded a haunting song called “Three Days in Rome,” about a lover’s treacherous retelling of their affair in a novel. Likewise, anonymous sources have been talking for years about a secret meeting two Bush administration Pentagon officials had in Rome with a notorious Iranian arms dealer, in December 2001. It’s been said that the officials, Larry Franklin and Harold Rhode, along with former Reagan White House intelligence operative Michael Ledeen, were scheming to sabotage a deal that Bush administration “moderates” were trying to make with Iran. Another version was that they were “rogue operators” plotting to overthrow the Iranian regime. Yet another tale about Rome has Italian intelligence officials passing along a fabricated document purporting to show that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, whom the Bush White House was plotting to overthrow, was buying uranium from Niger for a bomb. All such accounts were […] Read More

2005: FLEEING CALIFORNIA AFTER 56 YEARS

By Frosty Wooldridge February 13, 2005 NewsWithViews.com http://www.newswithviews.com/Wooldridge/frosty32.htm Former Colorado Governor Lamm said, “Of course immigration has been good for America, but mass immigration during the twenty-first century brings America far more liabilities than assets.” While Bush pretends to carry out his oath of office, Americans flee this immigration invasion. In 2003, 800,000 Californians fled their own state. Tens of thousands of Americans fled Miami, Florida years ago with the Cuban invasion. If you live in New York, 1.5 million immigrants cannot speak English. Texas sounds and feels like a foreign country. With millions of illegal aliens and legal immigrants refusing to speak English, is this still America? What does the future hold if we allow our country to become a polyglot of cultures and languages? The short answer is–misery for all of us as our nation cracks up like Humpty Dumpty. Once that happens, “All the king’s horses […] Read More

2005: Former CIA Director Tenet Threatens Disclosures?

Friday, Sept. 2, 2005 11:00 a.m. EDT Former CIA director George Tenet, said to be the target of what the Washington Times called “a scathing report by Inspector General John Helgerson” – may go public with embarrassing disclosures about the Bush administration and its actions leading up to Sept. 11, 2001. The CIA report, prepared as the result of a 17-month investigation by a team of 11 CIA officials, blames Tenet and several top CIA officials for its failure pre-9/11 to deal with al-Qaida. But former Reagan White House aide and intelligence expert John B. Roberts II, quoting an anonymous source close to Tenet, wrote in Thursday’s Washington Times that the former chief spook has no intention of taking it lying down. The report, delivered to Congress this week, recommends punitive sanctions against Tenet, former Deputy Director of Operations James L. Pavitt and former counter-terrorist center head J. Cofer […] Read More

2005: George Bush in Hell

by David Michael Green You would not want to be George W. Bush right now. Not that you ever would anyhow, but especially not now. Indeed, there are indications that not even George W. Bush wants to be George W. Bush right now. That second term in office, the one that just a year or two ago seemed so precious that he was willing to launch a war just to obtain it, now feels like a life sentence. Plans for four years spending political capital now look a lot more like endless months of capital punishment. The Bush Administration has nowhere to go but down, and that is precisely where it is headed. Poll data show that even members of his solid-to-the-point-of-twelve-step-eligibility base are now deserting him as his job approval ratings plunge like so much Enron stock, lately crashing southward through the forty percent threshold. With almost his […] Read More

2004: How Bush's Grandfather Helped Hitler's Rise to Power

By Ben Aris and Duncan Campbell  The Guardian U.K. Saturday 25 September 2004 . Rumours of a link between the U.S. first family and the Nazi war machine have circulated for decades. Now the Guardian can reveal how repercussions of events that culminated in action under the Trading with the Enemy Act are still being felt by today’s president George Bush‘s grandfather,the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany. . The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism. . His business dealings, which continued until his company’s assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two […] Read More

2005: Privatizing the Truth; Bush's war on information

”We’re an empire now, and when we act,we create our own reality”. Bush aide; Ron Suskind, New York Times Magazine 10-17-04 By Mike Whitney fergiewhitney@msn.com — A great deal of print has been wasted on President Bush‘s inability to tell the truth. In fact, it really makes little difference whether Bush is a pathological liar or not. What is meaningful however is that deception is the primary tool for the maintenance of the state. Transparency and candor are now seen as direct threats to the preservation of the status quo.This suggests that Bush’s lying is not simply a matter of human frailty or corruption, but a clear statement of administration policy. This may seem like a minor point, but in fact the conduct of the Bush administration cannot be seriously evaluated without understanding that deceit is the cornerstone of their class-based world view. Evidence of this is everywhere, right […] Read More

The Bush Crime Family Tree

George Walker, GW’s great-grandfather, set up the takeover of the Hamburg-America Line, a cover for I.G. Farben’s Nazi espionage unit in the United States. In Germany, I.G. Farben was most famous for putting the gas in gas chambers; it was the producer of Zyklon B and other gasses used on victims of the Holocaust. The Bush family was not unaware of the nature of their investment partners. They hired Allen Dulles, the future head of the CIA, to hide the funds they were making from Nazi investments and the funds they were sending to Nazi Germany, rather than divest. It was only in 1942, when the government seized Union Banking Company assets under the Trading With The Enemy Act, that George Walker and Prescott Bush stopped pumping money into Hitler’s regime.

We Failed You? Try Again.

JIM GERAGHTY – NATIONAL REVIEW Anne Rice blames America, not local officials: “To my country I want to say this: During this crisis you failed us. You looked down on us; you dismissed our victims; you dismissed us. You want our Jazz Fest, you want our Mardi Gras, you want our cooking and our music. Then when you saw us in real trouble, when you saw a tiny minority preying on the weak among us, you called us “Sin City,” and turned your backs.” – novelist and New Orleans resident Anne Rice Let me get this straight. Ms. Rice, you live in (what was) a very attractive city which lies below sea level. On one side you have a giant lake; on the other side you have the Gulf of Mexico. Running through the middle is the Mississippi River. All of which are above you. Preventing those giant bodies […] Read More
