The Bushite Damage

I have spent nearly five years of my life since the war began, writing about it. Oddly enough, I spent 10 years before the 2000 election warning about the coming EVIL of the Bushites and they're like. My novel (Lost Seasons) written in 1996-1998, published in 2004 when someone decided it was "Prophetic," opens with a world conflagration which back then, I thought would be initiated by the insanity of yet to be elected, Bushite Neo-con-fascism. Further, back in 1974, I had a vivid dream of Tanks driven by men in Corporate Nazi helmets, rolling down our streets bumper-to-bumper stretching out for blocks. In the dream, as a young man I fought in the American Underground to rid America of Corporate Nazi's. Cheney's ancestors had been profiting from wars for nearly 1,000 years in Scotland and Britain. They are currently in their final death throes before permanent residence in Hades. The Bush's have profited from wars, since before Prescott Bush's prewar loans to Nazi Adolph Hitler from 1932-1942 to build factories and we know what else, the pre-Gitmo torture chambers and concentration death-camps. That the Israelites have not figured out the Bush ties to fascism for themselves, is to me a reverse miracle of Unenlightenment. Now we have the Carlyle Group* the great, grandchild of at least, four generations of Bush Profits by war, from before the banking firm of Prescott Bush, Harriman, Walker, the firm Brown Brothers, Harriman and the UBC, from which FDR's congress seized Capital and stocks, for trading with the enemy. They were lending Adolph Hitler millions from 1932-1942 and they held $3,000,000 for another Nazi in their bank, and some believe they still had Nazi's working with them until 1951, six years after the war ended. However, this time there is a new wrinkle. This time the son of a former Carlyle Group board member and shareholder, is in the position of being able to initiate wars by which the Carlyle Group might profit. Talk about Conflict of Interest! Talk about corporate mafia! Talk about Murder Incorporated!

That Carlyle Group, with $15 Billion in Profits since 2003 for it's privately held shareholders, which at one time or another (See footnotes end of article) included; Bush, The Bin Laden's, the Saudi's, generals, admirals, former Republican Presidents and their sycophants, influential politicians from countries over which they've held sway, and a 15 year average of 34.7% profit 12 times better than the major American corporations. As of the last few years, Carlyle is the number one private equity firm on the planet. As I predicted five years ago, suspecting that Tony Blair had spent his way into debt, going way over his head buying a "Dream House," living the high life which he could not afford, (was he facing possible foreclosure?) perhaps, envying the Hilton's, Murdock's, Bush's, the Bin Laden's, the Saudi Princes and anyone with dynastic wealth, he would opt for dynastic wealth at any cost. Yes, no matter what he had to do to get it, no matter how many had to die and become maimed, he was desperate to live the lifestyle of a jet-setter. He had Knighthood, position, but no real money, no dynastic wealth. I believe he was looking around for a way to sell his soul to fulfill his avaristic desires. Was Blair hoping for, and perhaps even promised a job at Carlyle as his reward for supporting the war? Back then, I said that if so, he would be making far more than he ever made in politics, even as Prime Minister. Rupert Hamer last year reported that allegedly Blair has, indeed, been promised a job at Carlyle starting at 250,000 Pounds Sterling, (about $375,000 American Dollars). That salary is just the tip of a financial iceberg, however. As far as his immortal soul is concerned, he would have been better off had he become a male whore, and slept with every woman on the planet for money, than what he did do to gain dynastic wealth. Have the Bushites it all figured out, a new formula for losing one's soul; bribe the ones in a position to help, and if they will not accept the bribe, maybe someone will kill them? An airplane crash here, and auto crash there, a bomb over there, a "heart attack" over here, a terrorist attack or kidnapping, a beheading, by a mercenary "terrorist" or someone working for one of the American corporations currently stealing America blind. Hell, if someone should die, blame it upon Bin Laden or some other such dupe on the Bush payroll and they will have accomplished what they set out to accomplish.

Bush Junior's first Business venture was Arbusto Energy which was allegedly partially financed by James Bath a close family friend and at the time, Bath was the exclusive business representative in the U.S. for Salem bin Laden, head of the Billionaire Saudi Arab family. He was also one of the seventeen brothers of Osama bin Laden. When first asked about his connection with Bath and indirectly, therefore, with the Bin Laden's, Bush denied knowing the man. Later he admitted Bath's investment in Arbusto Energy. Bath, it seems, allegedly was somehow connected to those involved in the Bank of Commerce and Credit International (BCCI) scandal, the same bank that went on to fund Osama bin Laden. BCCI allegedly defrauded depositors of $10 billion in the 1980's. Former Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau called it the largest bank fraud in the financial in this planet's history� Ties? In the 1980's, BCCI allegedly assisted in laundering money for clandestine CIA activities, including financial support to the Afghan mujahedin and financing intermediaries in the Iran-Contra affair. After Salem bin Laden died in 1988, the Saudi Arab banker who was also a BCCI principal, Khalid bins Mahfouz, inherited Bin Laden's interests in Houston Texas. James Bath was reputed to have managed a business for bin Mahfouz (also in Houston) and supposedly collaborated with bin Mahfouz and a fellow named Gaith Pharaon, BCCI�'s representative in Houston�'s Main Bank. In 1986, Bush's Arbusto morphed into the Harken Energy Corporation. In 1987, the year of the market crash, Harken ran into trouble. Saving the company was Saudi Sheik Abdullah Taha Bakhsh, by purchasing a just under an 18 percent share of Harken. Bakhsh was also a partner of Pharaon's in Saudi Arabia and his banker in Arabia was bin Mahfouz. Again, Bush lied, telling the Wall Street Journal he had no knowledge of BCCI 's involvement with Harkin's. So tightly interwoven was Bush's financial dealings with BCCI, that the Journal in bringing their investigation of the ties to a close in 1991 stated: "The number of BCCI-connected people who had dealings with Harken, all since George W. Bush came on board raises the question of whether they mask an effort to cozy up to a presidential son� Or even the president: Bath finally came under investigation by the FBI in 1992 for his Saudi business relationships, accused of funneling Saudi money through Houston in order to influence the foreign policies of the Reagan and first Bush administrations. "Worst of all, bin Mahfouz allegedly has been financing the bin Laden terrorist network, making Bush a U.S. citizen who has done business with those who finance and support terrorists. According to USA Today, bin Mahfouz and other Saudis attempted to transfer $3 million to various bin Laden front operations in Saudi Arabia in 1999. ABC News reported the same year that Saudi officials stopped bin Mahfouz from contributing money directly to bin Laden. (Bin Mahfouz�'s sister is also a wife of Osama bin Laden, a fact that former CIA Director James Woolsey revealed in 1998 Senate testimony.) Quoting Wayne Madsen (the author of Genocide and Covert Operations in Africa 1993-1999), an investigative journalist based in Washington, "Hike in US defence spending to benefit Osama's family": Bin Laden-Bush business connection seen through Carlyle Group." The Wall Street Journal said in an investigative dispatch. It said "through this investment and its ties to Saudi royalty, the bin Laden family has become acquainted with some of the biggest names in the Republican Party." "In recent years, former president George H W Bush, ex-secretary of state James Baker and ex-secretary of defence Frank Carlucci have made the pilgrimage to the bin Laden family's headquarters in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia). " Ex-president Bush makes speeches on behalf of Carlyle Group and is senior adviser to its Asian Partners Fund, while Baker is its senior counselor and Carlucci is the group's chairman," the journal said." --Hindustani Times, 9/28/01" I could go on with Carlyle's ties, which would place it at least under grave investigation under The Patriot Act, but we have not heard word one from the Major News Media about it, especially not on TV or cable, nor the FBI, nor the Justice Department, nor any other enforcement agency. Back to my words of January 2003, "It is only a feeling, but I believe that the Iran Contra episode was not an episode, but that when this "war" is over, it will be noted that billions are unaccounted for from both the Treasuries of the USA and Iraq and that some of the contractors over there may be laundering stolen moneys to fund more terrorism. That terrorism is aimed at provoking wars between Iraq and Iran, Syria, and later Venezuela and still later the USA itself.

I believed that Cheney and others, will and have been, running an Iran Contra sort of operation in full partnership with the bin Laden's, Al Qaeda, the Taliban, (most of which were allegedly regular visitors to Crawford during the senior Bush Presidency and the Clinton administration, according to some) and more. Recall that in Orwell's "1984" the rebel (terrorist Leader) and Big Brother were one in the same person, or at the very least in partnership creating wars (Bush-"...this is a different kind of war, it will take years to finish..." The moment Bush said that I knew he was disrespectfully lying to us as a salesman does to a pigeon he think is dumb as a stone, (all the while creating terrorist activities to distract the citizenry into submitting for "security purposes" to self-destructive, totalitarianist, Constitutional destruction. The plan, a reenactment of the Orwell Novel "1984", the goal, a small number of families, the military, and Arab investors, including Osama Bin Laden, joining with the Bushites to rule the world making most of it a toxic, slave labor camp, ala the USA in the film "Escape From New York". In this Orwellian nightmare, the Successor to the Third Reich would be the Bushites, the Bin Laden's, the Cheney's, the Blair's and Halliburton. These families and companies which were tied in any way to the Iraqi fiasco and those which earlier financed Adolph Hitler and later, Saddam Hussein, and still later Osama Bin Laden, plan to share the leadership in a not so Brave New World. In fact, what they have planned is a vision of Hell and it started with congress acquiescing first on the passing of the Patriot Act and later on the passing of The Military Commission's Act of 2006. Rove, Cheney and the rest, must have chuckled heartily at how easy it was to pull the wool over the eyes of not only their own party members but also the Democrats. The dream of Adolph Hitler has been reborn-come to life in a dream that Hitler found relatively as easy to sell to his people, as the Bushites found, some seventy years later to Americans Now, the Third Reich, like a Phoenix has risen from its ashes, and what it promises the world is the opposite of the browning of what the America promises, The Third Reich promises the Whitening of America and the world, which also means that eventually the Bushites Arab partners, will face the new secret police brewed by Halliburton in Blackwater and elsewhere by Twin canopies and other such mercenary Soldiers of Fortune or secret police enterprises. When the Brown sinned Arabs have outlived their usefulness, Bush will dispatch them to a death camp or camps. People here in America, while Brown Brothers, Harriman and UBC and others were involved in financing Nazi's and specifically the military growth of his empire, sneered at the idea that Hitler was up to no good, "Conspiracy Theorists," "Paranoids," they gleefully spewed, provocatively, while Hitler and his demoniacs planned the Blond, Blue-eyed, White, Fascist, Heaven, other bigots only fantasized about. The Bushites, ably led by Satanic forces, which existence is always pooh-poohed by the clueless, and yet here we are once again, and probably for the Umpteenth time in history, where the brain dead, the Unenlightened, and the terminally imperceptive, go on with their idiocy of seeing nothing but their own whimpering, self-pity, tied up in small matters, where all their twisted and shriveled perceptiveness, and slumbering consciences are drowned by Id's which are too busy selfishly self-indulging and stuffing themselves with self-imposed materialistic, misery. While the Bushites steal the world, others souls are too caught up in mall shopping, iPods, reality TV, cell phone ring tones and other such materialistic, trivial, nonsense, thus remaining unconcerned and unenlightened. A world of fools shopping 'til they drop every day, whining and crying about how they were put upon by parents, friends, teachers, the opposite sex, and life, and how there is no God because He is not there to help them out a fix they'd gotten themselves into. We have failed to eradicate the Hun, not only because of the stupidity and insensitivity of those we elected, although that is a apart of the failure, not because we were too lenient with the Hun when we had him, although that was a part of the problem, not because we did not indict Prescott Bush, Harriman and Walker, although that was also a big part of our current dilemma, not just because single, working women failed to vote in noticeable numbers, and not because as children we were mistreated, abused, or ignored, or exploited, or abandoned, or unloved, although that may have some bearing on our own personal problems. However, the truth is that in one way or another we have all been mistreated, abused, or ignored, or exploited, or abandoned, or unloved, in one way or another, to a greater or lesser degree, or at least as we perceived our past, but some Americans, the enlightened ones, at least, have risen above their own problems and thrown themselves into attacking the real problems of our times, the cosmic problems which are ever returning until resolved. Those Americans, instead of wallowing in self-pity and attention getting antics and slanders, worked above their own problems and outside the box. We need to forget our pain, self-inflicted or otherwise and do something for others.

We have been alerted, we have been called to action, now let's get it done!

Hire Elliot Spitzer as Special Prosecutor And Go Get The Bastards*!

(I don't mean literally, *Bastards, but I can't use the expletive I'd like to use and still get MSM coverage, they told me.)

*According to Wickapedia and other investment sources, Carlyle was founded in 1987 by William E. Conway, Jr., Daniel A. D'Aniello, Stephen L. Norris, Greg A. Rosenbaum. Rosenbaum left in 1987; Norris in 1995. Three remaining founders are reported to own approximately a 50% interest in the group's GP. The California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) is the sole institution owning a stake in the partnership, at 5.5% of Carlyle. The founders named the firm after the upper east side hotel in New York City, "The Carlyle," where they first met to discuss the idea. Carlyle's current chairman is Lou Gerstner, former chairman and CEO of IBM. Carlyle invests in the following industries: Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Consumer & Retail, Energy & Power, Healthcare, Real Estate, Technology & Business Services, Telecommunications & Media, and Transportation. The Carlyle Group's investments are focused on East Asia, Europe and North America, with most investment money coming from the United States (65%), Europe (25%), Asia (6%), Latin America, and the Middle East. Defense investments represent about 1% of the group's current portfolio - although this translates, into a 33.8% ownership of QinetiQ as one example. QinetiQ Great Britain's's recently privatized defence company. Although known primarily for its expertise in aerospace and defense, more than thirty percent of Carlyle's invested assets are in the telecommunications and media sector. Noted portfolio companies are Dex Media, the former directories business of Qwest Communications; Willcom, a Japanese wireless company; Casema, a Dutch cable company; and Insight Communications, the ninth largest cable company in the U.S. The Carlyle Group is also a major investor in US Investigations Services, which is the privatized arm of the United States Office of Personnel Management's Office of Federal Investigations. Brand-name companies that Carlyle owns include: Dunkin' Brands, which owns Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, and dental hygiene company Water Pik. Carlyle also took rental car company Hertz public. Critics of the Carlyle Group frequently note its connections to various political figures. Some of the sectors and companies in which it invests are highly sensitive to political activity; indeed, its actions may be viewed as a form of political arbitrage. This may create conflicts of interest when political decision makers have their own personal wealth linked to such investments. Carlyle is the largest private equity firm located in Washington, D.C., its corporate headquarters are located on Pennsylvania Avenue. Critics refer to Carlyle as a private military contractor, because it owns controlling or partial interests in several military contractors. For example, it used to own United Defense Industries, which was developing the Crusader artillery project. This project was funded in eight consecutive Clinton budgets but was cancelled soon after Bush became president, which eliminated the remaining $9 billion of the original $11 billion contract. A much smaller contract was awarded to United Defense to capture technologies developed during the eight years of development.
