  • A critique of President George W. Bush Posted: October 18, 2008 (from 1:00 am Eastern
  • "Prologue to a catastrophe
    I, like most conservative Republicans, have been increasingly outraged and frustrated with the presidency of George W. Bush. However, let me state at the onset there are several things I can think of off the top of my head that Bush did well during his two terms as president of the most powerful country in the history of the world:
    * In 2001 Bush implemented a $1.35 trillion tax-cut program – one of the largest tax cuts in U.S. history;
    * His father, Bush 41, appointed one conservative justice – Clarence Thomas, Bush 43 appointed two moderate conservative justices to the U.S. Supreme Court – John Roberts and Samuel Alito;
    * Bush has kept America from another terrorist attack since 9/11....
    Why has Bush 43 been such a miserable, incompetent president? While the reasons are too many and complex to delineate in this short article, allow me cite a few policy concerns:
    * By August 2007, due to increases in domestic and foreign spending, the national debt had risen to over $10 trillion dollars, an increase of over 70 percent from the start of the year 2000, when the debt was $5.6 trillion, according to;
    * Bush is perhaps the worst communicator out of all the presidents in modern times. He is so inept at conveying even the simplest ideas without that bewildered look, pausing in awkward places, repeatedly saying, "uuuhhh," "aaahhh," "uuuhhhmm" and excessively stuttering for no apparent reason even while reading the teleprompter;
    * The United States entered 2008 with a shaky economy, consisting of a housing market correction, a sub-prime mortgage crisis, soaring oil prices and a declining dollar value. In February, 63,000 jobs were lost, a five-year record, and many observers believed that a U.S. recession had begun...

    Powell also addressed the controversial waterboarding interrogation technique that gained a level of infamy during the Bush administration, saying he wouldn't support the practice now.
    "The president of the United States, who has a responsibility to protect the American citizens, felt that, in that circumstance, waterboarding was appropriate, and as he clearly said, approved it and takes responsibility for the approval of it," Powell said. "I think subsequently, as you kind of go down the years and take a look at what has happened over the years, I think it could now be called torture."
    Powell noted that the FBI and other intelligence agencies have downplayed the quality of information the technique elicits, saying authorities can get better tips "through more vigorous and professional interrogation."
    "But the president of the United States is the one that is responsible for our safety and at that time the one thing we were most concerned about is to make sure we get everything we need to prevent another 9/11 attack," he said.
    Bush recently took responsibility for the go-ahead for waterboarding terror suspects in his memoir "Decision Points," released earlier this month."

    NEWS** Top U.S Bush Official is MURDERED + Mass Bird Deaths

    Top US Official Murdered After Arkansas Weapons Test Causes Mass Death Posted by EU Times on Jan 4th, 2011 // 446 Comments
    "...A shocking report prepared for Prime Minister Putin by the Foreign Military Intelligence Directorate (GRU) states that one of the United States top experts in biological and chemical weapons was brutally murdered after he threatened to expose a US Military test of poison gas that killed hundreds of thousands of animals in Arkansas this past week.
    According to this report, John P. Wheeler III, Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, Washington, D.C. from 2005-2008, when he became the Special Assistant to the Acting Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Logistics and Environment, was found brutally murdered and dumped in a landfill, and as we can read as reported by Fox News:
    "Delaware Police are investigating the apparent murder of a former Bush official who also championed the fund-raising effort to build the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the Mall in Washington, D.C. Wheeler’s body was found in Wilmington on Friday.

    According to police, somebody initially reported that the body was dumped out of a refuse truck, which would have been coming from Newark, onto the landfill. Newark Police spokesman Lt. Mark Farrall told Fox News that nobody had reported Wheeler missing before he was found.

    The Wilmington News Journal reported that Wheeler was last seen riding an Amtrak train from Washington to Wilmington, Del., last Tuesday."
    .Wheeler’s military career included writing one of the most important manuals on the effectiveness of biological and chemical weapons which led to his being hired in 2009 as a consultant to the Mitre Corporation, whose aviation system development department, the GRU reports, is at the forefront of creating the computer command and control systems used by the US Air Force in their fleet of aerial spraying planes.
    These aerial spraying planes, this report continues, are based at the Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas that over the past few months have been involved with ‘test dispersants’ of poisonous gasses in the Afghanistan War Theater using chemical weapons stocks obtained from Iraq and held at the Pine Bluff Arsenal, also located in Arkansas.
    Important to note about the Pine Bluff Arsenal, which calls itself “America’s Arsenal”, is that it is one of the World’s most specialized munitions and chemical-biological defense products and services bases which Russia had previously accused of not fully reporting the chemical agents removed from Iraq, between 2003 and 2008, and taken to the US for testing and subsequent destruction.

    " You must also read these NEW SHOCKING REPORTS:
    -Top US Federal Judge Assassinated After Threat To Obama Agenda
    *see GoodnewsUSA.Info USA: Arizona
    -Birds and Fish are now Dying all Around the World

    According to this report, the US relocated from Iraq to the Pine Bluff Arsenal an estimated 63,000 metric tonnes of the poisonous gas Phosgene that is described as one of the most feared chemical weapons ever used due to its ability to literally cause the lungs and respiratory system to explode.
    Nearly immediately after Russia accused the US this past summer of not fully destroying Iraq’s Phosgene poisonous gas stockpile the Pine Bluff Arsenal began an ‘accelerated’ disposal programme injecting it deep into the ground in central Arkansas, but which, unfortunately, since this past September, has caused over 500 minor earthquakes to occur raising the concerns of their local population.
    More frightening, however, is the claim made in this report that the Americans have also begun shipping ‘massive quantities’ of Iraq’s Phosgene poisonous gas stocks to Afghanistan where when used they will be able to say they had nothing to do with it, and believe no one will be able to prove it either.
    Important to note about Iraq’s Phosgene poisonous gas stocks are that they are no longer able to be made by any Western country, including the United States, which makes its value as a Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD) incalculable, especially in a war situation like Afghanistan where the enemy forces are firmly entrenched in hostile terrain.
    To the direct reason for Wheeler’s murder, this report says, was this past week’s transport of Iraqi Phosgene poisonous gas aboard a US Air Force KC-767 tanker aircraft from Little Rock Air Force Base enroute to Afghanistan that shortly after takeoff had a ‘critical malfunction’ of its aerial spraying computer directed command and control system over central Arkansas causing the deaths of thousands of red-wing blackbirds.
    According to US reports an estimated 4,000 of these birds were killed outright and were quickly removed by US Environmental Services workers wearing hazmat suits and gas masks. Another US report states that cause of death to these thousands of birds was “trauma in the breast tissue, with blood clots in the body cavity and a lot of internal bleeding” which this GRU report states is consistent with Phosgene exposure.
    Even more chilling than this incident is this GRU report stating that it was the second “accidental” release of Phosgene poisonous gas in as many days, as the day before, this same US Air Force KC-767 tanker aircraft also had a “critical malfunction” causing a release over the Arkansas River that killed over 100,000 fish.
    Upon Wheeler discovering what was happening with Iraq’s Phosgene poisonous gas stockpiles, this report continues, he traveled from his home in Delaware to Washington D.C. where he openly confronted and threatened to expose the Pentagon and White House Officials responsible. Being a Vietnam Veteran who was responsible for having the famous memorial to that war erected, Wheeler was more than knowledgeable about the United States massive chemical and biological attacks in that conflict and had vowed to not let happen again.
    Sadly, but all too common in the United States these days, when Wheeler threatened to go public with what was happening he was targeted for death, and as a "sign” to anyone else thinking of going against the regime, had his body dumped in a garbage pit for all the World to see.
    Today, another great American was murdered in an effort to save his country from destruction. Sadly, his death will go barely noticed; the American people seem no longer to care as they continue to seek their solace in their propaganda media lies rather than confronting the brutal truth about the monsters they have let rule over them.
    For hundreds of thousands of other Americans they have become so disassociated with what is happening to, and around them, they have proclaimed May 21, 2011 as the day the World will end and are giving up everything in preparing to meet their God.
    The great American Revolutionary leader Noah Webster once said, "Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.”
    The Americans living today have utterly failed to heed these words and have, instead, become just what their masters have always intended for them to be… imbeciles. May God have mercy on them all.

  • Body of US military expert found in Del. landfill, By RANDALL CHASE, Associated Press Randall Chase, Associated Press – Mon Jan 3, 6:30 pm

  • 'DOVER, Del. – The body of a military expert who served in three Republican administrations was found dumped in a landfill over the holiday weekend, and investigators said Monday they do not know who might have killed him.
    John Wheeler III, 66, was last seen Dec. 28 on an Amtrak train from Washington to Wilmington. His body was found three days later, on New Year's Eve, as a garbage truck emptied its contents at the Cherry Island landfill. His death has been ruled a homicide.
    Wheeler, who served in Vietnam, helped lead efforts to build the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in Washington.
    The former Army officer lived in New Castle and worked as a consultant for The Mitre Corporation, a nonprofit based in Bedford, Mass., and McLean, Va., that operates federally funded research and development centers.
    Police have determined that all the stops made Friday by the garbage truck before it arrived at the landfill involved large commercial disposal bins in Newark, several miles from Wheeler's home.
    "He was just not the sort of person who would wind up in a landfill," said Bayard Marin, an attorney who was representing Wheeler in a dispute over a couple's plans to build a new home in the historic district of Old New Castle where the victim lived.
    Wheeler, the son of a decorated Army officer, was a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy. He retired from the military in 1971.
    Wheeler served as a special assistant to the secretary of the Air Force under President George W. Bush, and in the administrations of Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. He also was the first chief executive of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
    As the first chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, Wheeler led the multimillion-dollar fundraising effort to create the memorial on Washington's National Mall.
    Fund founder and president Jan Scruggs said Wheeler dedicated himself to ensuring that service members were given the respect they deserve.
    "I know how passionate he was about honoring all who serve their nation, and especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice," Scruggs said in a statement released Monday.
    In a forward for the book, "Reflections On The Wall: The Vietnam Veterans Memorial," Wheeler wrote that the beauty of the wall photos in the book comes from the black granite's reflective quality.
    "Before construction of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, those of us working on the project knew the wall would be shiny and reflective," he wrote. "But no one anticipated the sharp, true, and expansive mirror quality of the wall. The high polish of the black granite surface reflects blue sky, green trees, the Washington Monument, the Capitol Dome, the Lincoln Memorial, and the expressive faces of visitors who approach the Wall."
    Wheeler's military career included serving in the office of the secretary of defense and writing a manual on the effectiveness of biological and chemical weapons, which recommended that the United States not use biological weapons.
    "He was a very humble kind of guy, actually," Marin said. "He was never the kind of person who would talk about all the wonderful things he did in his life.""

    Nightline ties John Wheeler's death to the bird deaths.

  • Carlyle Group, wikipedia

  • "..Connections between the Carlyle and the Bush family have created controversy, particularly in relation to the War on Terror and the Iraq War. George H. W. Bush and his Secretary of State James A. Baker III have at times been advisors to the group. One writer claimed that Saudi Arabian interests have given $1.4 billion to firms connected to the Bush family.[citation needed] Of this figure, $1.18 billion comes from contracts awarded to defense contractor Braddock, Dunn & McDonald, which Carlyle sold before George H. W. Bush became an advisor.[22] A Carlyle spokesman noted in 2003 that its 7% interest in defense industries was far less than several other Private equity firms.[23] The group has in the past had links with the Bin Laden family, although the group argues investment was relatively minor and made by relatives including a half brother to Osama Bin Laden who had "disowned" him...
    In the documentary film Fahrenheit 911 Michael Moore makes nine allegations concerning the Carlyle Group, including: That the Bin Laden and Bush families were both connected to the Group but following the attacks on September 11, the bin Laden family’s investments in the Carlyle Group became an embarrassment to the Carlyle Group and the family was forced to liquidate their assets with the firm; That the Carlyle group is, in essence, the 11th largest defense contractor in the United States. Moore lists and provides evidence for the allegations on his website."

    George W.'s Personal Jesus By Guy Lawson December 31, 2004
    "..His father was in the front row with him that winter day, and his mother and wife and daughters, all gathered to celebrate his election. The thought of the younger Bush ascending to the presidency was on everyone's mind. But he didn't plot his life or aim to fulfill ambitions for the highest office, Bush wrote in his 2000campaign autobiography, A Charge to Keep. He acted spontaneously, lived in the moment, seized opportunities. His faith gave him the freedom to make all kinds of difficult decisions without worrying about the consequences. "I could not be governor if I did not believe in a divine plan that supersedes all human plans," the presidenttobe wrote...

    He uses his religion as a political tool better than any president in history. Christ is his number one adviser. And yet we don't really know what he believes. It's all part of the plan. gq-features-010805-jesusBush.jpg In the beginning, there was the call. George W. Bush sat in a straightbacked wooden pew in a private prayer service at a Methodist church in Austin on the day of his inauguration for a second term as governor of Texas. His father was in the front row with him that winter day, and his mother and wife and daughters, all gathered to celebrate his election. The thought of the younger Bush ascending to the presidency was on everyone's mind. But he didn't plot his life or aim to fulfill ambitions for the highest office, Bush wrote in his 2000campaign autobiography, A Charge to Keep. He acted spontaneously, lived in the moment, seized opportunities. His faith gave him the freedom to make all kinds of difficult decisions without worrying about the consequences. "I could not be governor if I did not believe in a divine plan that supersedes all human plans," the presidenttobe wrote. The Reverend Mark Craig, from Highland Park United Methodist Church, in a wealthy suburb of Dallas, knew George W. Bush well. The pastor and the congregation—as well as the whole state and most of the Republican Party—knew that Bush was struggling with "The Sacrifice Question," as the costs of running for president were called in Texas. In A Charge to Keep, Bush recalled the sermon from that day. The reverend told the story of Moses, who was asked by God to lead his people into the desert and unto the land of milk and honey. Moses was reluctant to take up leadership, the reverend said. Moses had sheep to tend, and he didn't want to make the sacrifice. "The people won't believe me," the reverend described Moses as saying. "I'm not a very good speaker. Oh, my Lord, send, I pray, some other person." George W. Bush had listened to his share of sermons since he'd begun his walk of faith, but he told friends that this was the best he had heard in his life. If Bush was waiting for inspiration—literally, the breath of God—then this was the moment that would change him forever, he wrote, a moment of recognition so clear and vivid that everything afterward would seem different. "People are starved for leadership," the reverend proclaimed. "America needs leaders who have the moral courage to do what is right for the right reason." The congregation rose to its feet cheering, a joyous noise reaching from the choir to the farthestback pews. Barbara Bush, the former first lady, said to her son, "He was talking to you." It was at this moment that George W. Bush was called to run for president. "As I stood to take the oath of office and give my inaugural address," he wrote, "the sun broke through the clouds." George W. Bush is the most overtly and publicly religious leader of the United States in generations. He speaks constantly of faith and the power of prayer and America's special place in the purposes of God. Religion permeates his official speeches and informal talks. Jesus is his favorite philosopher, he said in a debate in Iowa during the 2000 presidential campaign...

    In the fall of 1985, Bush and Poage were part of a group of men—their number soon grew to 150—who began to gather every Monday night at First Presbyterian Church, forswearing the weekly football game on television. Community Bible Study, as the national organization is called, is strictly nondenominational, open to Protestants and Catholics alike. It was also mainly a women's organization at the time; the men in Midland were breaking the mold. The night would start with singing a few songs, perhaps a hymn or a rendition of Hank Williams's "I Saw the Light," and then the men would break into groups of ten or so to discuss the lesson of the week. "We studied Acts and the Book of Luke, which is the only Gospel with the story of Jesus told in chronological order," Poage says. "It was orderly and made sense in a way that fit George W. Bush." The homework they were supposed to complete took a couple of hours each week and required answers to questions such as these, from Lesson 21, on the Gospel of Luke...

    The term born again entered the lexicon in Jimmy Carter's 1976 presidential campaign, during which he told Playboy magazine he had been born again—and the term soon became the subject of ridicule during the scandals involving televangelists during the 1980s. Leaverton said that there are many ways to describe the moment when, in the eyes of Christ, you pass from death to life accepting Christ into your life; surrendering to Christ; being born again; asking Christ into your heart; believing in Christ. "Many Baptists and Pentecostals will tell everyone they meet how and where and when they were born again, but Bush avoids that term for good reasons," Leaverton told me. "If you're from the South, in the Bible Belt, you understand the language, but a lot of northerners don't." Bush is an evangelist in the way it is commonly understood, Leaverton said He has an intimate relationship with the creator of the universe. "If you asked George Bush facetoface what he believes, he would tell you, but it can come off sounding kind of severe because it's not an easy thing. Do you believe Christianity is the only way to God Well, Christ was very clear about that. He didn't allow much wiggle room.".."
