Another Bush Thug Bites the Dust

This Is Who Bush Wanted to Secure His Homeland

Kerik Pleads Guilty in Corruption Probe
By TOM HAYS , Associated Press

A year and a half after his Homeland Security nomination sank over ethics questions, former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik pleaded guilty Friday to charges of accepting tens of thousands of dollars in gifts while he was a top city official.

Kerik was convicted on a pair of misdemeanors in a deal that spared him any jail time. He instead was ordered to pay $221,000 in fines at the 10-minute hearing.

Kerik acknowledged accepting $165,000 worth of renovations on his Bronx apartment from a company attempting to do business with the city - a New Jersey construction firm with alleged links to the mob. He also admitted failing to report a loan as required by city law.
The plea bargain allows Kerik to continue his new career as a security consultant in the Middle East.

The papers cited testimony by mob turncoats that owners Frank and Peter DiTommaso were associates of the Gambino organized crime family.

The civil complaint also detailed Kerik's cozy relationship with an Interstate official. In 1999, he sent a series of e-mails to the official that "indicated his lack of sufficient funds to both purchase and renovate his new Bronx apartment" and "indicated he would provide information to Frank DiTommaso regarding New York City contracts," the papers said.

In recent months, a grand jury has heard conflicting testimony from the DiTommaso brothers - who denied paying for the renovations - and from a contractor who said they picked up most of the tab. Former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, a close friend of Kerik and his one-time boss, also testified.
Giuliani said Friday that the guilty pleas do not diminish Kerik's accomplishments.

Our Newsday confrere, columnist, Ellis Hennican, delivered a tart reminder yesterday about who Kerik really is for anyone who's forgotten. For example, Ellis recalls "one of many petty scandals that have hung over Kerik's career. When he ran Correction, nearly $1 million of tobacco-company rebates were diverted into an obscure foundation Kerik was president of. This was for cigarettes bought with taxpayer money and then sold at inflated prices to jail inmates. But this rebate money - would kickbacks be a better word? - got spent entirely outside the normal rules for public funds. No one was criminally charged. But a whole rash of IRS rules were seemingly violated. One board member quit in protest when the foundation treasurer refused to provide him with financial reports. And no one has ever explained where all the money went. It was a typical Kerik deal. He behaved from start to finish like normal rules didn't apply to him." Read Hennican's whole column.

But there's a lot more: Kerik whose Iraq assignmnent won him the nickname "the Baghdad Terminator," has in the past advocated assassination as a U.S. Policy in Iraq. The New York Times reported last year on an odiferous arms purchase in Iraq at inflated prices on Bernie Kerik's watch in Iraq while Rudy and Bernie were raking in big dough as security consultants (and Bernie was on the Saudi payroll as a royal bodyguard).
The past few days have seen news reports about a rash of possible personal and professional improprieties on the part of the former New York City police commissioner, including big stock-option windfalls, connections with people suspected of doing business with the mob and, on Monday, allegations he had simultaneous extramarital affairs with two women.

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 former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.

The evidence has also prompted one former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor to argue that the late senator's action should have been grounds for prosecution for giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

Three sets of archives spell out Prescott Bush's involvement. All three are readily available, thanks to the efficient US archive system and a helpful and dedicated staff at both the Library of Congress in Washington and the National Archives at the University of Maryland.

The first set of files, the Harriman papers in the Library of Congress, show that Prescott Bush was a director and shareholder of a number of companies involved with Thyssen.

The second set of papers, which are in the National Archives, are contained in vesting order number 248 which records the seizure of the company assets. What these files show is that on October 20 1942 the alien property custodian seized the assets of the UBC, of which Prescott Bush was a director. Having gone through the books of the bank, further seizures were made against two affiliates, the Holland-American Trading Corporation and the Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation. By November, the Silesian-American Company, another of Prescott Bush's ventures, had also been seized.

The third set of documents, also at the National Archives, are contained in the files on IG Farben, who was prosecuted for war crimes.

A report issued by the Office of Alien Property Custodian in 1942 stated of the companies that "since 1939, these (steel and mining) properties have been in possession of and have been operated by the German government and have undoubtedly been of considerable assistance to that country's war effort".

Was Bush prosecuted then ...or now?

More than 60 years after Prescott Bush came briefly under scrutiny at the time of a faraway war, his grandson is facing a different kind of scrutiny but one underpinned by the same perception that, for some people, war can be a profitable business.

Bush makes a great big deal out of Saddam Hussein's palaces... it seems to me that it would only be justice served, if the Bush palaces were turned into holocaust museums in memory of the MILLIONS who have died over the past sixty years at the hands the Bush funding of fascism, torture and war crimes. It would be a start toward healing and show the world that America gets it.

It is the Hypocrisy of Bush Democracy

Hypocrisy Mars the War on Terror

Graduates from Ft. Benning partook in Latin America's most corrupt regimes, yet Congress still funds the school, by Rev. Charles Booker-Hirsch

Since the tragedy of 9/11, we have learned some of the ways Osama bin Laden has schooled his al-Qaida organization into a formidable terrorist organization. No major media organization I know of, however, dares today to discuss how for more than five decades - the last two decades on our own soil - our own government systematically has been operating a more substantial terrorist school.

Established in Panama in 1946 as a hemispheric Cold War beachhead, the U.S. Army School of the Americas (SOA), which operates solely for the training of Latin American military officers, was moved to Ft. Benning in Columbus, GA in 1984. Over 60,000 have graduated. They include Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega and Bolivian dictator Hugo Banzer; the assassins of an archbishop, a bishop, six Jesuit priests and four American churchwomen; and countless other military strongmen responsible for the deaths of literally hundreds of thousands.

From 1989-93, I worked with and heard the graphic persecution stories of untold numbers of Central American refugees fleeing de facto military dictatorships. It was no coincidence that the majority of SOA graduates in those years hailed from the Central American countries of Guatemala and El Salvador. Today, the majority of trainees are imported from Colombia, where we have pumped over $2 million of military aid daily the last two years into a "war on drugs" smokescreen for business interests that has only served to inflame the 40-year civil war there. Just two weeks ago, a narrow House majority freed this "drug eradication" money to openly engage in counterinsurgency operations. Vietnam, anyone?
In 1996 the Pentagon was forced to release training manuals used at the school that advocated the use of torture, extortion and execution, according to The School of the America's Watch, a watchdog organization. Even after these were made public, Defense officials continued to point out that most of the school's graduates had not committed the scores of human rights abuses against the millions of refugees fleeing the wrath that's come. This may be true. At the same time, for the last 55 years most of the Latin American military officers who actually ordered these abuses learned their lessons well through our taxpayer-supported SOA.

After the House of Representatives decisively voted to shut down the school in 1999, a House-Senate conference committee voted 8-7 to keep it open, provided the school be renamed - get this - the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHISC). Even SOA proponents saw no difference in the much-touted renaming.
Georgia's late Sen. Paul Coverdell assured his constituents the name switch was "a cosmetic change," and the Columbus, Ga. Ledger-Inquirer strongly concurred in a recent editorial. Different name - same shame. Orwellian Doublespeak, anyone?

Please join me and numerous communions such as the Presbyterian Church in urging leaders such as our distinguished Sen. Carl Levin, Chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee, to close SOA/WHISC and discontinue "Plan Colombia." The irony again is that, in the midst of our current war on terrorism to parts East, we train and unleash scores of future terrorists yearly to parts South. Hypocrisy, anyone?

The Rev. Charles Booker-Hirsch is pastor of Northside Presbyterian Church in Ann Arbor. He was one of 43 indicted in April for trespassing onto Ft. Benning during what he describes as a solemn nonviolent civil disobedience action last November. The "SOA 43" trial date has been set for July 8 at the U.S. District Court in Columbus, GA.
Praise the Lord, Rev. Charles Booker-Hirsch, may you always see the light surrounding you.

Thank you sir for your courage in standing: for love, for peace, for integrity and humanity - thank you.

Your values are something I would like to emulate, and certainly seem more representative of the Jesus I learned about as a little girl. In fact the Jesus I learned about, would have swept this miserable, hate-filled, money grubbing bunch of criminals from the temple a l-ong time ago. Now THAT would be faith, integrity and justice all rolled into one, a system that actually works to bring this treason to justice.

Thousands of Souls Say - "Hold Them Accountable"

Three thousand unresolved deaths, strong evidence of treason, and a horizon of endless war still remain matters of capital concern. To this date, the scenario of complicity alleged in Ellen Mariani's landmark RICO suit remains the most cogent and credible 9/11 narrative ever offered to an America raised on Court TV.
Freedom to hate flag, or what freedom of speech is used for in the USA

Bar would really like it if you kept quiet about her boy, money laundering and the CIA drug is just sooo impolite, to bring that nasty stuff into the light.

Examining those same 9/11 facts from a detective's point of view — as an unsolved and as yet quite successful crime —exposes far deeper concerns. The prime questions now become prosecutorial and focus attention on the critical issues of Motive, Opportunity and Means. Who ultimately gained most from the attacks? Who had the power to commit, permit or abet them? Who spotted or created the chance for them to occur? ...


... the RICO lawsuit we filed is one of the most significant cases in our history. To date, the Bush Administration has done more to diminish individual rights than any other administration in 225 years. With the enactment of the Stabilization Act and Patriot Act I, the attempted enactment of Patriot Act II, the photographing and fingerprinting of individuals entering the United States from certain countries and the planned “color coding” of everyone in the United States by the summer of 2004, “1984” is becoming a reality today, twenty years after the date it was projected. “911” has provided the pretext for the global military expansion we are seeing today, with its enormous costs in lives, federal funding and environmental damage.

After speaking around the country, we have found that people are amazed at the lack of media coverage of the RICO [Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act] lawsuit filed on behalf of Ellen Mariani and all law-abiding citizens of the United States and the world. The mainstream press has ignored our RICO lawsuit as well as most aspects of “911” until recently. But Bush’s arrogance in placing pictures of “911” in his re-election ads, along with the continued stonewalling of the “911 Commission” and the ineffectiveness of the “911 Commission,” has now brought this story to the forefront.
RICO was created in the 1960s by Congress to go after the mafia, the mob. It is our position that there is a “mob” in the Bush White House. When the events of “911” are investigated and when the “right” questions are posed, there is no way to avoid the conclusion that “911” occurred with the complicity of Bush and his administration.

Let us turn the spying eye of this criminal government back on them.

If this is a democracy -Bush, Speedy Gonazales and Arrogant Ashcroft have broken over 700 laws - hold them accountable!

Then reverse the appointments to the judiciary made by this WASP mafia, and return the country to government "of the people, by the people, for the people."

Perhaps for the first time in his spoiled narcissistic life, it is time for George Bush to be held accountable. The future of the legal system and America depends on it.

Follow The Money - Truth to Treason

Published on Wednesday, May 22, 2002 by
Follow the Money: Bush, 9/11, and Deep Threat
by Fran Shor

What did the President know and when did he know it?” This question, evocative of the Watergate investigation, is now being posed by politicians and pundits seeking to determine what information the Bush Administration had prior to the incidents of September 11, 2001. No amount of denial and back-pedaling by the Bush Administration can cover up the fact that Bush had advance knowledge of possible terror attacks on US targets by the followers of Osama bin Laden. While it’s clear that Bush was personally briefed on August 6, 2001 about the possibility of those attacks, it remains unclear about the nature and extent of precautions, if any, taken to prevent such attacks. ...

Nonetheless, there is a welter of material that points to the Bush Administration’s obstruction and neglect of important leads to link bin Laden to operations in the United States. Moreover, in the months and weeks leading up to 9/11 there were warnings and signs that some members of the Administration and its national security apparatus were anticipating something horrendous. ...

By detailing Bush’s background and fast-forwarding to the decisions of the Administration in its pursuit of war in Afghanistan, a possible war in Iraq, and a permanent war agenda, a money trail will unfold that will transform Deep Throat’s admonition into a Deep Threat alarm concerning the lives and liberties of citizens of the United States and the world.

The Bushes, bin Ladens, and Carlyle

The Bush family’s involvement with oil is not only deeply rooted in Texas oil wells, but also in the Middle East. George W’s first experience in business was in the creation of the Arbusto Oil Company which eventually merged into Harken Oil. In 1986 Bahrain came to the rescue of the failing company by accepting a drilling contract with Harken even though Harken had no real background with drilling. When George W. sold his holdings in Harken for $848,000 in June of 1990, he cashed in at a point right before the company took a nose-dive in the aftermath of Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait in August of 1990. Questions about whether George W. had been given a warning by his father concerning what may have been the entrapment of Saddam Hussein in Kuwait have never been fully settled.
If 9/11 was a tragedy to thousands of Americans and their families, Bush and his father’s Carlyle cronies hit the jackpot, especially with renewed contracts for Carlyle defense investments. In particular, Carlyle had invested heavily in United Defense, the primary manufacturer of the Crusader artillery system. Although the Crusader faced a skeptical Congress before 9/11, Carlucci and his lobbyists certainly managed to line-up his old college buddy, Donald Rumsfeld, behind promoting the outmoded Crusader. When Carlyle went public with United Defense stock offerings in the fall of 2001, Carlucci, Bush, Baker, and other investors in Carlyle made out like bandits. However, when a possible paper trail and conflict-of-interest against Rumsfeld surfaced recently, he announced his opposition to Crusader. Of course, millions had already been made and Rumsfeld had to cover his own backside in light of the calls for the resignation of the Secretary of the Army, a former Enron executive already awash in dubious conflicts-of-interest.

The Taliban and Pipeline Politics

However, if the Saudi and Carlyle connections to father and son Bush don’t raise alarms, then the whole history of the Bush Administration’s dealings with the Taliban should. The primary focus of these dealings was the renewal of a planned pipeline from the natural gas rich fields of Turkmenistan through Afghanistan and Pakistan to other Asian markets. Behind this whole operation was the Unocal company. Among the advisors to Unocal was Zalmay Khalilzad, an Afghan-American academic, who in addition to being an advisor to Unocal in the 1990’s was also part of the foreign policy think-tanks that included Frank Carlucci. Khalilzad joined the Taliban’s lobbyist, Laila Helms (a relative of former CIA director, Richard Helms) in direct talks between representatives of the Taliban and the Bush Administration right up through July of 2001. When the Taliban broke off the talks, refusing the pipeline offers, the Bush Administration made known its efforts to strike back at the Taliban as early as August of 2001.

Ostensibly attacking the Taliban for its refusal to hand over Osama bin Laden, the Bush Administration refused any alternatives to the military option. During the whole military operation, the Pentagon has tried to establish security points that reflect the route of the proposed pipeline. Moreover, Harmid Karzai, the hand-picked US leader of Afghanistan, was, at one time, also a consultant for Unocal. Along with Khalilzad, who now is the US representative to Afghanistan’s interim government, Karzai is effectuating plans for the pipeline.

The CIA and Other Deep Pockets

In the immediate aftermath of 9/11 a number of news stories appeared concerning investments in “put” options in United and American Airlines. Put options are shares that are bets on falling market prices for specific stocks. In the week before September 11 put options in United and American Airlines went through a furious and unprecedented spasm of investment. In addition put options for Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch, two of the biggest occupants of the World Trade Center, also saw abnormal activity. Most of the investments in these put options originated in Germany through the Deutsche Bank. Deutshce Bank had earlier acquired Banker’s Trust, a investment banking firm whose Vice Chairman in charge of “private client relations” in the late 1990’s was A. B. “Buzzy” Krongard. In March of 2001, Krongard was appointed Executive Director of the CIA.

Certainly, the CIA has a history of laundering money and dealings with shady investment characters. What becomes particularly relevant in the lead-up to 9/11 is the August CIA briefing of Bush concerning the potential threat of attacks by bin Laden using hijacked planes on certain sites, such as the Pentagon and World Trade Center, and the fact that the CIA had bugging equipment on bin Laden messages and international banking operations. Although no one has apparently claimed the money from the put options, questions remain about Krongard and the CIA’s involvement.

Warning Signals and Criminal Negligence

The CIA’s briefing for Bush wasn’t the only warning coming from intelligence agencies about the possible attack by hijacked planes on targets like the Pentagon and World Trade Center. Both German and Russian intelligence agencies picked up signals during the summer of 2001 about bin Laden plans. The FBI in its investigation of Zacarias Moussaoui’s activities documented his desire to fly a plane into the World Trade Center. When those FBI agents requested a warrant to search Moussaoui’s personal computer, the civil liberties-minded Attorney General, John Ashcroft, turned them down. On the other hand, Ashcroft was worried enough about the hijacking of commercial airplanes that starting on July 26, 2001 he stopped flying on commercial aircraft. Of course, neither Aschroft nor anyone else in the Bush Administration bothered to warn airport authorities to be on heightened alert and to tighten airport security in the face of such warning signals.

To suggest that the Bush Administration arranged the 9/11 tragedy is to resort to wildly speculative conspiracy theories. On the other hand, there is a substantive and documented record of neglect and obstruction to warrant a charge of criminal negligence by Bush and his national security state apparatus. It may be that part of that apparatus, especially elements within the FBI, are angered by how they and their reports were cavalierly treated by the White House. They and other congressional sources may be leaking the kind of information that was essential in bringing down President Nixon. Instead of waiting, however, for what appears as inevitable congressional investigations, we should be doing everything in our power to raise questions in public forums and the courts, if possible, about the criminal negligence of the Bush Administration. Before another pretext is created for another war for oil and the advancement of the military-industrial complex, this Administration needs to be confronted for the duplicitous and corrupt self-serving elite they are.

Fran Shor teaches at Wayne State University in Detroit. He is an anti-war activist and member of the Michigan Coalition on Human Rights.
It is bizarre, isn't it - we are watching a criminal corporate coup appoint judges, break over 750 laws with seeming impunity - and claim war time powers, after starting an illegal and immoral war.

I agree with mr. Bush that 9/11 changed everything, which is why it should have been investigated. Please start by forcing Bush to declassify the records of 140 Saudis flown from the country under executive order that did not allow their interview.

Ask the President why the Rand Corporation a well respected RIGHT WING organization, listed Saudi Arabia as the number one terror state in the world, and yet that country did not even make Bush's axis of evil. To the contrary Bush had the report minimized then he invited Prince Bandar to the ranch - so he could grovel in person.

If you want to stop the war on terror - look in the mirror and remove the huge log in the eye of the country. Until then all the world sees is a once great country held hostage to organized crime, in the form of a political party and president, both criminal.

Like Father - Like Son - Once a Nazi Always a Nazi

"To live in this process is absolutely not to be able to notice it... Each step was so small, so inconsequential, so well explained or, on occasion, 'regretted,' that, unless one were detached from the whole process from the beginning... one no more saw it developing from day to day than a farmer in his field sees the corn growing. One day it is over his head."
- Milton Mayer, "They Thought They Were Free"

Just think - YOUR son or daughter could be trained in this all American activity that has had its own school in Florida for THIRTY years.

American SLAVERY, "democracy" and constant political interference in action = Haiti. Isn't this close to where Tom Delay runs a slave colony?

RFA37 -- How the United States Lost the Second World War

RADIO FREE AMERICA - An Archive Series Produced by David Emory

Considered by Mr. Emory to be his best work, this massive archive program merits serious consideration as the most revealing explanation of the Cold War to date. The history of intellectual endeavor teaches that prevailing theories in the academic disciplines may be disproved and supplanted in time. Taken in combination with its immediate predecessor RFA program number 36, this work documents the working hypothesis that during the Cold War, German fascism and the Third Reich did not disappear as is commonly believed but rather survived underground and achieved a very real political and economic victory over the Allies.

Saving the Saudis*Craig Unger**
Just days after 9/11, wealthy Saudi Arabians, including members of the bin Laden family, were whisked out of the U.S. on private jets. No one will admit to clearing the flights, and the passengers weren't questioned. Did the Bush family's long relationship with the Saudis make it happen?

The pattern is right out of Das Reich. Capture all the oil reserves in the world, and drive the indigenous people off their own land.

This generation of Bush is simply the family out of the closet - the culmination if you will of sixty years of planning, manipulation and treason.

The "intelligence" agencies in Canada and the USA have become the KGB, and our respective "leaders", simply suits for a corporate industrial military complex, devoid of soul, integrity or

We choose leaders, by choosing between two corporate clones, either in the pocket of corporate crime. When leaders of passion, conviction, and inspiration arrive - like Kennedy, like Martin Luther King, ...they are assassinated or mysteriously die in a plane crash.

They start wars for profit and count on years of brainwashing with flag pledges by rote, and
tearful patriotic speeches. All the while the truth simmers under the surface, until one day a kid in Columbine picks up a gun and tries to blast the hypocrisy off the face of the earth. He doesn't care anymore about anything because he knows everything he hears on his TV is bullshit.
He is like Winston in Orwell's 1984 ... when he does turn on the TV, or the radio and listens to the patriotic propaganda - a gin soaked tear runs down his cheek.

Since eugenics seems to be such a fascination for Nazis, I wonder if they have ever explored the gene for narcissistic psychopathy, because it certainly seems to run in this family.

Time To Come to Jesus, mr. Bush

What would the world be like if we could have done this about sixty years ago?

Can you imagine Bush allowing any kind of fair election, after achieving office on TWO suspect elections and illegally acquiring the powers of a dictator?

Does anyone really think he will
turn unlimited power over to anyone else other than a Bush puppet?

How many Americans know American industry sponsored Hitler in WWII (Especially the Bush family)?

How many ex Enron lobbyists comprise the RNC? The DNC?

Why isn't the law enforced by
arresting the corporations who hire illegal immigrants, and FINING THEM for the medical expenses, and cost to the taxpayer?

Again, having acquired war powers based on an illegal, immoral war, the investigation of cause blocked at every turn, this week these criminals have the audacity to bleat "treason" at the New York Times for reporting yet another law breaking move by the Bush Administration.

How utterly predictable. They are called to account for their treason and they accuse someone else immediately. Nice try, this time it is not working. The people are waking from a long winter's nap and they are hungry for truth, and mad as hell about the way they have been lied to - time to come to Jesus mr. bush...time to be held to account.

Bush Occupation From Auschwitz to Abu Gharib

It's in the genes folks:

How important was the Nazi enterprise for which President Bush's father was the New York banker?

The 1942 U.S. government investigative report said that Bush's Nazi-front bank was an interlocking concern with the Vereinigte Stahlwerke (United Steel Works Corporation or German Steel Trust) led by Fritz Thyssen and his two brothers. After the war, Congressional investigators probed the Thyssen interests, Union Banking Corp. and related Nazi units. The investigation showed that the Vereinigte Stahlwerke had produced the following approximate proportions of total German national output:

50.8% of Nazi Germany's pig iron
41.4% of Nazi Germany's universal plate
36.0% of Nazi Germany's heavy plate
38.5% of Nazi Germany's galvanized sheet
5.5% of Nazi Germany's pipes and tubes
22.1% of Nazi Germany's wire,

Prescott Bush became vice president of W.A. Harriman & Co. in 1926. That same year, a friend of Harriman and Bush set up a giant new organization for their client Fritz Thyssen, prime sponsor of politician Adolf Hitler. The new German Steel Trust, Germany's largest industrial corporation, was organized in 1926 by Wall Street banker Clarence Dillon. Dillon was the old comrade of Prescott Bush's father Sam Bush from the "Merchants of Death '' bureau in World War I.

The great financial collapse of 1929-31 shook America, Germany and Britain, weakening all governments. It also made the hard-pressed Prescott Bush even more willing to do whatever was necessary to retain his new place in the world. It was in this crisis that certain Anglo-Americans determined on the installation of a Hitler regime in Germany.

W.A. Harriman & Co., well-positioned for this enterprise and rich in assets from their German and Russian business, merged with the British-American investment house, Brown Brothers, on January 1, 1931. Bert Walker retired to his own G.H. Walker & Co. This left the Harriman brothers, Prescott Bush and Thatcher M. Brown as the senior partners of the new Brown Brothers Harriman firm. (The London, England branch of the Brown family firm continued operating under its historic name--Brown, Shipley.)

For this buildup of the Hitler war machine with coal, steel and arms production, using slave laborers, the Nazi Flick was condemned to seven years in prison at the Nuremberg trials; he served three years. With friends in New York and London, however, Flick lived into the 1970s and died a billionaire.

On March 19, 1934, Prescott Bush--then director of the German Steel Trust's Union Banking Corporation--initiated an alert to the absent Averell Harriman about a problem which had developed in the Flick partnership. Bush sent Harriman a clipping from the New York Times of that day, which reported that the Polish government was fighting back against American and German stockholders who controlled `` Poland's largest industrial unit, the Upper Silesian Coal and Steel Company.... ''

In view of the fact that a great deal of Polish output was being exported to Hitler Germany under depression conditions, the Polish government thought that Prescott Bush, Harriman and their Nazi partners should at least pay full taxes on their Polish holdings. The U.S. and Nazi owners responded with a lockout. The letter to Harriman in Washington reported a cable from their European representative: `` Have undertaken new steps London Berlin ... please establish friendly relations with Polish Ambassador [in Washington]. ''

But immediately after Germany came under Hitler's dictatorship, the Anglo-American financiers granted debt relief, which freed funds to be used for arming the Nazi state.

The Bush family profited directly from the slave labor of Auschwitz concentration camp. Indeed, if America was a free country, most Americans would have heard by now that the President and his family have been sued by holocaust survivors.

George H. W. Bush, hired Nazis to work in his CIA, and his development of an illegal CIA within the CIA to do his skullduggery was spelled out quite well in "Three Days of the Condor."

Now the son of this family of fascism is in office, and he has started an illegal and immoral war, after standing down for 9/11, and committing corporate criminal negligence by diverting funds from New Orleans levees to Iraq, when he knew a full scale disaster was predicted.

Like his grandfather, he trades with the enemy (Saudis), listed as the top terror nation by Rand, they did not even make his "axis of evil."

It is time to end the Bush occupation of America

Dying For (Deferral) Dick

Talk About Being A Gangsta!

Dick Cheney and His Friends Are Profiting Big Time From the War

Why Isn't The Mainstream Media Reporting this????

Cheney's Former Company Profits from Supporting Troops Special Series By Pratap Chatterjee

Special to CorpWatch March 20, 2003

As the first bombs rain down on Baghdad, CorpWatch learned that thousands of employees of Halliburton, Vice President Dick Cheney's former company, are working alongside US troops in Kuwait and Turkey under a package deal worth close to a billion dollars. According to US Army sources, they are building tent cities and providing logistical support for the war in Iraq in addition to other hot spots in the "war on terrorism."

Cheney served as chief executive of Halliburton until he stepped down to become George W. Bush's running mate in the 2000 presidential race. Today he still draws compensation of up to a million dollars a year from the company, although his spokesperson denies that the White House helped the company win the contract. ...

In December 2001, Kellogg, Brown and Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton, secured a 10-year deal known as the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP), from the Pentagon. The contract is a "cost-plus-award-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity service" which basically means that the federal government has an open-ended mandate and budget to send Brown and Root anywhere in the world to run military operations for a profit.

Linda Theis, a public affairs officer for the U.S. Army Field Support Command in Rock Island Arsenal, Illinois, confirmed for Corpwatch that Brown and Root is also supporting operations in Afghanistan, Djibouti, Georgia, Jordan and Uzbekistan.

"Specific locations along with military units, number of personnel assigned, and dates of duration are considered classified," she said. "The overall anticipated cost of task orders awarded since contract award in December 2001 is approximately $830 million."

Cheap labor is also the primary reason for outsourcing services, says Major Toni Kemper, head of public affairs at the base. "The reason that the military goes to contracting is largely because it's more cost effective in certain areas. ...

Iraq has oil reserves second only to those of Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile Dick Cheney's 2001 financial disclosure statement, states that the Halliburton is paying him a "deferred compensation" of up to $1million a year following his resignation as chief executive in 2000. At the time Cheney opted not to receive his severance package in a lump sum, but instead to have it paid to him over five years, possibly for tax reasons.

The company would not say how much the payments are. The obligatory disclosure statement filled by all top government officials says only that they are in the range of $100,000 and $1million. Nor is it clear how they are calculated.

Critics say that the apparent conflict of interest is deplorable. "The Bush-Cheney team have turned the United States into a family business," says Harvey Wasserman, author of The Last Energy War (Seven Stories Press, 2000). "That's why we haven't seen Cheney - he's cutting deals with his old buddies who gave him a multimillion-dollar golden handshake. Have they no grace, no shame, no common sense? Why don't they just have Enron run America? Or have Zapata Petroleum (George W. Bush's failed oil-exploration venture) build a pipeline across Afghanistan?"...

Some things you simply cannot improve upon.

Mulroney's Mime, Neo Con North

Stephen Harper, our great leader, with a 32% "mandate" - cannot rush quickly enough to become Brian Mulroney 2006.

A public service workers document really nails what the relationship will mean to the Canadian worker:

Mulroney-Harper alliance bad news for Canada's workers

American presidential candidate John Kerry blasts anti-labour practices in the U.S. by Quebecor World. Brian Mulroney is chairman of the board.

Ottawa - Brian Mulroney is back and it's bad news for Canadian workers.If any reminder were needed, apart from his close association with Conservative Leader Stephen Harper, it came late last week with the reporting of a Mulroney-related union-busting operation in the United States.

Mulroney-Harper alliance

Mulroney has emerged as one of Harper's most important advisers in the June 28 Canadian election campaign. He is also the chairman of Quebecor World of Montreal, one of the largest commercial print media services companies anywhere. Quebecor has just been blasted by U.S. presidential candidate John Kerry for gross interference with American employees who want to join a union. (Full text below.)

"My concerns are reinforced by 41 unfair labor practice charges that have been filed with the U.S National Labor Relations Board detailing specific incidents where Quebecor's management has interfered with and intimidated workers attempting to form a union."- Senator John Kerry

The former Canadian prime minister has been keeping a low profile during the Canadian election, mainly because memories of his 1984-1993 government are still so raw in voters' minds that his influence would be a liability if citizens knew how close the two men have become. Mulroney was so despised when he left politics that his Progressive Conservative party was reduced to two seats, the most humiliating defeat ever suffered by a national ruling political party in Canada. Since then, the former prime minister has worked tirelessly to restore his tattered reputation.

Conrad Black - wanted for bilking Hollinger, on whose board sat Henry Kissinger and Richard Perle, fellow Neo Cons who like Harper, want to rule to the world - or simply change the laws to protect their carnage.

From Mulroney to Stephen Harper - the bilking and selling of Canada is nearly complete.

Heck Martin signed an agreement with Bush and Fox to merge Canada, Mexico and the USA . NONE Of the leaders consulted with their respective parliaments who hold the representatives of the people.

There is no democracy in North America - it was sold in Canada - under Mulroney. Ever since Mulroney (and Reagan in the USA) we "elect" a suit from either the Liberal or Conservative Party - either of whom report to the Bilderbergs, the Trilateral Commission and various other corporate directed, profit driven groups.

Welcome to your new owners. You paid to train their army, and now they rule you.

Cheney moved 42 Halliburton companies offshore where they pay no tax at all yet receive directed government bids in the billions - all associated with Iraq oil.

You will of course be both Christian and heterosexual. Both are now prescribed by law.

Of course our lumbering, blue-eyed boy, will end every droning mime with instructions to God to "Bless Canada."

Gee what an exciting future.

We can, and must, all grow up to long for greed, all look alike, love the lord and of course be heterosexual.

They (on the other hand) will gay bash to distract from their war criminal behavior all over the world, and project their guilt continually on others. The pedophile ring (international) that has thrived in the background of every Republican administration - will continue - it is business honey.

Welcome to Canada, let us hold the door open...want our cash, our census system, our country... anything that defines us as Canadian. How about our children. Oh that explains the dumbing down of schools, the lack of funding.
