Gov. George Bush, Jr., To Seek Presidency?
Hillary Clinton, according to the July 20, 1997 issue of Parade magazine, as reported in The Spotlight, Aug. 11, 1997, may be a presidential candidate in the year 2000. Notes The Spotlight: "Although posing as 'light fare,' Parade actually has a long history of floating trial balloons and leaking information for the intelligence community and the plutocratic elite. So Hillary's candidacy may indeed be in the offing." And what could be worse than that? How about Spawn of Bush, Gov. George Bush, Jr., of Texas as Republican presidential nominee?
Our story thus far: Ronald Reagan, Republican nominee in 1980, is forced by Rockefeller to choose George Bush, Sr., as his running mate. "What the heck," thinks Reagan. "I'll still be President." Reagan believes that, as President, he is actually in charge. He steers his own course, and what does he care when his Vice President tries to tell him to do otherwise. But Reagan gets a strong "message" to the contrary when, supposedly, John Hinckley, Jr., almost kills him in 1981. Hinckley's father, John Hinckley, Sr., owns Vanderbilt Oil and has been a Houston neighbor for years of George Bush, Sr. Hinckley, Sr., has also given "campaign contributions" to Bush, Sr., since way back, when Bush, Sr., first ran for Congress.
So after surviving the attempted assassination, Reagan gets wise and bows to George Bush, Sr., in certain areas. Then in 1988, George Bush gets elected as President. We therefore have George Bush as de facto President from 1981 through January of 1993.
While Bush was de facto President, he had been visited privately by the then not-well-known governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton. Clinton had met with Bush in Portland, Maine and later privately visited him at Kennebunkport. (Boy Clinton by R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.) The Clinton-Bush nexus is also seen in the book Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA (by Terry Reed and John Cummings; a book sometimes sneered at by those who have never actually read all of it.) Write Reed and Cummings, "Here was what seemed a strange alliance. A state [Arkansas] run by Democrats in bed with a Republican administration in Washington..." What Bush and Clinton have had in common is that both of them are CIA boys: Bush connected to that nefarious agency since at least the time of the JFK assassination and on through when he was CIA Director in the 1970s; Clinton a part of the CIA "community" since at least his days as a student at Oxford, when snitch Clinton ratted on the anti-Vietnam War movement of that time. (See Partners in Power by Roger Morris.)
What this all means is that George Bush, Sr., has never been "out of the loop" since 1981 -- including during Bill Clinton's presidency.
Bill White of Houston helped Texas Republicans with "investments." White was sponsored by Lloyd Bentsen, Jr., son of former-senator Lloyd Bentsen, Sr. Lloyd Bentsen, Jr., was Harvard classmate of George Bush, Jr., now the governor of Texas. Another friend of Bush, Jr., has been James Bath, reportedly "a front man for Arabs connected with BCCI [Bank of Credit and Commerce International] who were buying influence in America." (The Outlaw Bank by Jonathan Beaty and S.C. Gwynne.) Bath reportedly is/was also CIA, recruited by George Bush, Sr., in 1976. "Son of Bush," George, Jr., owned a tiny "energy company" named Arbusto (which in Spanish means "Bush"). Arbusto was purchased in 1988 by Harken Energy. "Son of Bush" was named director of Harken. Then, Harken Energy got very "lucky" -- they had no offshore drilling experience, yet "won an offshore drilling concession from the Gulf kingdom of Bahrain that was potentially worth billions." (The Outlaw Bank) According to Bill White, spilling the beans to Beaty and Gwynne for their encyclopedic book on BCCI, that rogue bank seems to have played a part in the oil-drilling concession that went to Harken and "Son of Bush," the potential U.S. President-elect in the year 2000. (See also an article on the Bahrain oil concession by Beaty and Richard Behar, apparently published in Time magazine.)
So a continuing Bush dynasty looms on the horizon. Or, you could vote for Hillary Clinton, herself tied to the Bush dynasty. Or there's always Al "Knight in Shining Armor" Gore, whose pressure favoring NAFTA has led to erosion of American paychecks. Or there's "Smiling Dick" Gephardt -- no dirt on him available at the moment. Or how about "Lame Duck" Bill Clinton? You say he can't seek a third term? Hey, Bill Clinton can get away with murder. Or there's even Oliver North who, according to "Ru Mills" (pseudonym), is being positioned for a presidential bid. One of George Bush's other buddies, retired General Colin Powell, is also a possibility. Overall, the apparent plan is that if you throw enough crap into the process, one of "our" guys is sure to win.
