PBS' "The American Experience": Elevating GHW Bush to Sainthood

I think I'm gagging...
GHW Bush-Texas Book Depository-11/22/63
GHW Bush-Texas Book Depository-11/22/63
Watching PBS right now. "The American Experience". All about GHW Bush, monkey boy's daddy (so they say). Did you know that Prescott Bush, GHW's daddy, was a great civil rights leader and humanitarian? An 'Aristocratic Liberal' who was devoted to 'spreading democracy' around the globe. This is the same Prescott Bush who was declared a NAZI AGENT by no less than J. Edgar Hoover, who made him resign as CEO of the Union Bank of New York, a money-laundering operation for Adolph Hitler's Third Reich. Prescott was, in fact, "Hitler's Banker". He was a bonafide NAZI who passed his racist philosophy on to his progeny, much to the world's regret. So why is PBS giving us this love-in for a man dubbed "ice-pick" in the CIA, for his favorite personal method of asassination? GHW Bush was central to some of the most evil acts in history, including the murder of JFK and the escalation of the Vietnam War. Perhaps PBS feels that Bill Moyers needs a bit of balance. A bit of revised bullshit to counteract the tons of horrible secrets about W being revealed by Moyers concerning the Iraq war. They can never fix Humpty-Georgie W again, but they can gild the lily about his daddy, and thus cushion the awful damage W has done to the Bush legacy. Who cares if his daddy was just as evil as he is? PBS can just lie and lie and lie about GHW Bush's record, motivation, lack of ethics, and total disregard for the Constitution on almost every level. Bush Sr. was always the evil genius behind Ford and Reagan. Plus he was basically in charge of all CIA covert ops as far back as 1963, although he STILL claims he wasn't in the CIA until the 70's! PBS has really fallen...your tax dollars at work...

At least a few points of BULLSHIT there!! 05.May.2008 22:43

There were a couple of instances where the stated conviction, or purpose of HW seemed completely at odds with the scoundrel we know him to be. Don't have time to document, but this seems like another PBS raft of shit supporting the right-wing, fascist takeover of the country.

Read a hugely informative article that is more truthful than the Bush-slime could ever be... http://globalresearch.ca/PrintArticle.php?articleId=8854.

Extraordinary Times, Intentional Collapse, and Takedown of the U.S.A.

By Richard C. Cook

Global Research, April 30, 2008

Much has been written about whether a worldwide plan exists to control events and steer them in the direction profitable to an elite of the rich and powerful. Is this a "conspiracy theory"? While it is difficult to be specific about who exactly may be behind such a conspiracy, if it exists, it is at least clear that the privately-managed system of global financial capitalism gives ample opportunity for the world's richest people to combine for their mutual benefit. Further, global financial capitalism itself is based on the monopolization of money-creation by a world banking system that is largely privately owned, even while working through the central banks of the largest and most prosperous nations. This article postulates the existence of a coordinated and longstanding matrix set up by the controllers of money to dominate the movements of history. The article focuses particularly on what seems to have been an attack that has been going on for over a century against the independence of the nations of Russia and the U.S. The article also suggests a series of monetary reforms whereby the U.S. , or any other nation, can regain its economic identity and preserve its political freedom. The article was written a short distance from the reconstructed colonial capitol building in Williamsburg , VA. On this site on May 15, 1776, the Fifth Virginia Convention voted unanimously to instruct its delegation at the Second Continental Congress in Philadelphia to enter a motion for independence. It may be time to do that again.



Russian philosopher P.D. Ouspensky (1878-1947) wrote, "It is a mistake to think the times we are living in are like any other. These are extraordinary times."



Ouspensky, with his mentor, G.I. Gurdjieff, escaped from Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution, during the Russian Civil War. Though academia has failed to acknowledge it, this epochal convulsion was financed in part through the monetary resources of the international financial elite operating out of London, Amsterdam, New York, Paris, Hamburg, and Frankfurt.



It was this elite, acting through Western banks, which appears to have surreptitiously provided the wherewithal for Lenin and Trotsky to destroy the Russian nation after the fall of the Tsarist regime at the end of World War I. Support by the Western financiers is discussed by Dr. Matthew Raphael Johnson in his revisionist history, The Third Rome: Holy Russia, Tsarism & Orthodoxy. (The Foundation for Economic Liberty , Washington , D.C., 2003)



The present analysis postulates that the takeover of Russia, whose backbone was the alliance among the House of Romanoff, the Orthodox Church, the land-owing nobility, and thousands of self-governing peasant communes, was one of two major projects which the financiers set out to accomplish early in the 20th century in a longer-range plan to dominate the globe. The other was the control and eventual destruction of the United States of America. That project may be reaching fruition through the ongoing and seemingly purposeful financial meltdown of 2008.
