Connie Cook Smith's "What America Needs to Know"

In the 10/22/03 issue of The New York Observer, Joe Conason writes about George W. Bush's grandpa -- Prescott Bush's money-laundering and lengthy support for the Nazis -- until Congress forced the man to stop in late 1942.

Yet Joe apparently believes that's all there is to it. He writes:

"Imputing Nazi sympathies to the President or his family (now) ought to be beneath his adversaries."

Joe and I are usually on the same page, politically. But minimizing the Bush-Nazi connection is a deep disservice to all Americans, who have a right to know the horrific truth.

Joe-- and any interested reader -- ought to check out the Congressional Record, September 4, 1969. (It's not yet available online, but it can be viewed at all federal deposit libraries in most large cities). Here's what you will find:

George Bush Sr., then a congressman, sponsored testimony from race scientists William Shockley and Arthur Jensen

These Hitler Junior Geneticists -- enthusiastically sponsored by George Bush Sr. -- wanted to pay/bribe African-Americans to accept government birth control programs -- in order to stop them from "down-breeding the quality of the U.S. population."

And surely it's become well-known that the Skull and Bones cult at Yale, which the Bushes belong to, is based on vicious white-supremacist, master-race fantasies. If you don't know that, you must see Alexandra Robbins' best-seller, Secrets of the Tomb

It all started with Sam Bush, Prescott Bush's father, who sold war materiel to both sides during WWI -- and thus the traitorous family business begins.

Prescott did the same -- and much worse. He was a manager of the Auschwitz inmates, who were "free labor" (slaves!) for his coal and steel interests in Poland

Yes, there was Prescott Bush, seeing nothing wrong with that, along with his father-in-law, George Herbert Walker -- the two were financially supporting Hitler from 1924 - 1942.

Even though the Trading With The Enemy Act was passed right after Pearl Harbor in 1941, even though American soldiers were being to sent overseas to die, Grandpa Bush didn't care. He kept financing Hitler until Congress FORCED HIM to stop. These are just the Bush Family Values.

We know very well about George Bush Sr.'s illegal arms deals to the Contras (de-stabilizing a democracy in Nicaragua) -- and arranging for our hostages in Iran to be held in misery longer so that Jimmy Carter wouldn't get credit for freeing them, and thus Reagan/Bush would win the 1980 election. (Read October Surprise, by Barbara Honegger, and Trick or Treason, by Robert Parry.) And even though Iran was our murderous enemy, Bush Sr. made sure they got all the arms they wanted, because this is the Bush family business -- TREACHERY and TREASON.

Not to mention Bush Sr.'s/Reagan's well-known arms deals with Saddam Hussein all through the 1980's! Then in 1990, Bush Sr. tricked Saddam by conveying through our ambassador that it was okay for Saddam to invade Kuwait (Kuwait was side-drilling out Iraq's oil.)

But what happened when Saddam trusted Bush Sr.? Bush turned and used Saddam's Kuwait invasion as an excuse to send our soldiers after him (and to establish our troops in Saudi Arabia, the real goal.) This was called The Gulf War. Saddam's no peach, but who can blame him for putting Bush's face on a mosaic floor for everyone to walk on?

And let's not forget that the Bushes and the bin Ladens have been thick as thieves (they ARE thieves) for over 20 years.

And naturally, like father, like son unto the next and current generation. George W. cashed out his Harken stocks a week before they tumbled in 1990 -- an early Enron. Dubya came out with a hefty profit, while all his partners lost their shirts.

(If Martha Stewart, a Democrats contributor, goes to prison for insider trading, Dubya certainly ought to have the cell next door!)

But much worse: Dubya screwed the American people by doing nothing whatsoever when warnings of "hijacking airliners" poured in during his vacation in 2001. Just as he did nothing on the day of 9/11. He did not jump up from his chair at that elementary school and say, "Excuse me, children, duty calls." Instead -- he sat there for 20 minutes, making no inquiries, issuing no orders!

Due to no action from this "Commander-in-Chief," the Pentagon strike was not prevented, as it easily could have been. At 9:05 am, he was told "America is under attack." The plane hit the Pentagon at 9:37. If Bush had immediately ordered air defense for the nation's capital or the eastern seaboard --which you'd think any Commander would do! -- then jets from Andrews AFB only 12 miles from Washington would have been up and protecting the skies within that critical half hour -- actually, within minutes.

But no, Dubya did nothing, even as as another airliner (it's now known) headed for Congress and the Capitol Dome! "Fortunately," it crashed in Pennsylvania. Later, Bush just high-tailed it to an underground bunker with other globalists who "happened to be there" -- while the nation fended for itself.

And now this President who is "restoring integrity and honor to the White House" doesn't bother to condemn and rout out those on his staff who exposed the name of a CIA operative, a deep-cover agent whose work was protecting Americans from rogue possession of WMD! How ironic. A woman who was actually protecting our country has been rendered useless and likely placed in danger by the Bush administration -- by those who are SUPPOSED TO BE protecting our country -- but didn't and aren't.

The ENTIRE criminal history of these genuinely evil people -- all the Bush brothers and uncles, too, from 1898 - 2001 -- is available for a quick read at

A writer on the Internet (who I regret I've lost track of) summed it up well -- and I paraphrase: For generations, the Bushes have represented BODY BAGS FOR OUR SOLDIERS, MONEY BAGS FOR THEMSELVES.

I hope Joe Conason will apologize to his readers for scolding people who KNOW that the Bushes are rotten traitors and actual Nazis.

Mainly, I hope other journalists will pick up the torch and awaken the American people to this dynastic family's colossal deceptions and horrific crimes.

Connie Cook Smith's "What America Needs to Know"

Four new White House Deputy Dictators are appointed! There's a new Looter-in-Chief for Iraq --
plus a just-created "Forget About Democracy" Department --
and more!

In a complete psychotic break from reality, the White House is fantasizing it can remove power from the Pentagon, the State Department, and the CIA -- seriously! -- and consolidate it instead under Condoleezza Rice's operations.

First the Bush White House imagined it could go it alone against the world. Now it is hallucinating it can usurp authority from the military, intelligence, and foreign policy divisions -- and somehow survive.

Ms. Rice, of course, whose ties to Chevron resulted in an oil tanker being named after her, is allegedly our National Security Adviser. When Sandy Berger of that same office under President Clinton informed Rice in early 2001 that counterterrorism on American soil should be her highest priority -- and gave her all the documents -- she did NOTHING with all that helpful information, and further, did nothing about all the 9/11 threats that came in right beforehand.

So now Her Incompetency continues to be rewarded (as all Bush administration personnel are rewarded for failure) with a big fat increase in responsibility and funding -- i.e., POWER.

According to CNN/Reuters ( ), Rice has been placed in charge of the new "Iraq Stabilization Group." Discerning readers understand that, in reality, as the "Iraq Subjugation Command."

The CNN/Reuters report says the "reorganization" announcement occurred in a confidential memorandum on Thursday to Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld, and George Tenet. In other words, the State Department, the Pentagon, and the CIA have been informed that THEIR subjugation-of-Iraq efforts are too wussy, and now some real Dictators are being put in place.

The memo, of course, was written "together with Vice President Dick Cheney" -- and with Powell and Rumsfeld, who -- if they want to stay in the administration -- have no choice but to go along.

The new policy was formulated "after talks she held with Bush in late August." Can you just imagine Rice trying to explain to Bush -- just as she carefully had to explain to him a few years ago that yes, South America has black people, too -- that things in Iraq now are desperately out of control -- and there will be no more putting on flight-suit-costumes and doing landing-stunts on aircraft carriers -- unless Georgie's "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq actually gets, well, accomplished!

Indeed, Ms. Rice says to the public this move is "a recognition by everyone that we are in a different phase now." Indeed, truly desperate now.

The "working groups" in the White House will be run by four Deputy Dictators: Gary Edson will oversee economic issues like oil, electricity, currency -- in other words, he's been designated Looter-in-Chief.

Robert Blackwill (are they making this up? Great name for a villain -- Bob Blackwill ! ) is in charge of "creation of political institutions in Iraq" and Afghanistan -- also known as the "Forget About Democracy" Department.

Frances Townsend is in charge of counterterrorism, which means "Operation Crush Iraqi Resistance."

And Anna Perez will head up "clearer messages to the media regarding worries about reports of attacks on US troops, and unrest in the cities." Reports of attacks on our soldiers? Worries about what's going on over there? CAN'T HAVE THAT. We can count on good news from now on, as Ms. Perez sets up her Department of Disinformation.

Gosh, first it was paranoid delusions that caused the neo-cons to be afraid of (or greedy for) Iraq, and to attack without any provocation. Now it must be a psychosis causing the White House to pretend they can usurp power from State, the Pentagon, and the CIA.

I think the Bush administration is going to go down as fast as the towers did on 9/11.

And one more thing -- seemingly unrelated. Y'all have heard the news stories about two tigers lately? In Las Vegas, Roy Horn of Siegfried and Roy remains in critical condtion after a tiger in his act nearly mauled him to death. And in New York, a guy who was keeping a 425-pound tiger IN HIS APARTMENT was hospitalized with his leg nearly torn off.

Ya see, these critters have been manipulated and used for their owners' profit and pleasure for a long time. But it seems the tigers are waking up and realizing, "Hey, wait a minute, who REALLY has the power here?"

I can't imagine the power of the military and the CIA much longer putting up with the childish and dangerous policies of the George W. Bush White House.

And like awakening tigers, I can't imagine the American people much longer not "going for the jugular" of the likes of Bush and Cheney. These guys hijacked our government in 2000. They are ruining America and wrecking the world. And I think it's time for us tigers to turn on our manipulative masters.

Since I wrote the below commentary about Bush, and below that, about Republican hypocrisy and media protection (Republican stories you never hear about), some lids have blown off!

Morals guru Robert Bennett was caught using the fees he earns from Christian groups to hang out in Las Vegas casinos, to gamble lavishly in pre-dawn hours when he was least likely to be seen.

A former Republican governor, ticketed many times for speeding and often joking about it, ran a stop-sign at high speed and killed a volunteer firefighter on his motorcycle.

A Republican Senate aide was fired and forced to take down his website which was named after the numbers on the tail of the plane which crashed and killed Democrat Mel Carnahan. Displayed like some sort of scalp, or trophy, the plane's tail numbers referred to the Republican triumph of John Ashcroft.

(Ashcroft was actually defeated in that senatorial election by the newly deceased Mr. Carnahan -- but Bush swooped in and elevated the embarrassed Ashcroft to power as Attorney General. Hence the plane's tail numbers represented GLOATING at the death of the Democrat, and celebration of the default power position of the Republican.)

Rush Limbaugh has been exposed for his complete lack of human decency (racist remarks) on ESPN and had to step down from that position. And meanwhile it's been reported that he's the subject of an investigation into a "hillbilly heroin" (oxycontin) drug ring. The deafness he suffered a few years back (for which he received much sympathy) may have been caused by his illegal drug use.

Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger -- IF YOU READ THE DETAILS OF THE ALL THE WELL-DOCUMENTED ACCOUNTS IN THE LOS ANGELES TIMES -- there's no question Arnold has been until very recently the very creature of one of his movies: "Predator." As late as 2000, he has overpowered women -- both strangers in restaurants and elevators, and assistants on movie sets -- with strong-arm, physically painful, and humiliating grabs for their breasts and buttocks. Laughing all the way.

And now we're seeing the White House ethics of trying to harm the wife of a truth-teller against Bush. Ambassador Wilson's report was one of several which revealed Saddam had no nukes, contrary to Bush's lies. But the White House saw fit to punish Wilson for telling this truth by exposing Wilson's wife's secret status as a CIA agent. National security and lives are endangered -- all because, I think, Wilson's article ruined Bush's birthday when it appeared on July 6th!

Yup, tigers are turning, lids are blowing off, and the bad guys are going down!
