Common Threads

When researching the shadow government or Deep State http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_state it is amazing how so many of the same names keep popping up. One of those names belongs to Robert Booth Nichols, a longtime player who was recently back in the news. Mr. Nichols, who died under strange circumstances back in February was involved with the current financial crisis through Sam Israel, one of the thousands of Bernie Madoffs that have been using intricately structured financial instruments, shady hedge funds and offshore banking to destabilize America from within as though it were just another banana republic. The opaque, above the law, rigged games that have brought the country to the brink of ruination for the benefit of a corrupt oligarchy have working blueprints in CIA/shadow government fronts of the past such as BCCI and the Nugan Hand Bank http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nugan_Hand_Bank and there is no reliable way of knowing just how much of the finance, insurance and real estate (F.I.R.E.) economy is derived from such shady organizations.

I would strongly suspect that the amount of money laundering, involvement with organized crime, narcotics and weapons dealing that is being currently conducted is stunning. Only the recent high profile cases like that of Alan Stanford who has been tied to such dirty activities as well as Madoff and Israel get the attention but they are the proverbial tip of the iceberg. Without digressing too much I just want to point out that much of the post WW II intelligence apparatus including the cowboys who were at the heart of the original Octopus were directly tied to the Eastern establishment, Skull and Bones types from which the OSS/CIA was comprised of. This being said, it is only natural that such grand scale financial chicanery and speculation has come to dominate both the U.S. economy as well as the government itself which is so thoroughly intertwined with the pirates that the schemes of the Wall Street high rollers are preserved at the expense of the millions of lesser beings whose lives are being destroyed by the ongoing greed and the subsidizing of such by a system gone cancerous.

Now back to Robert Booth Nichols who prior to his death was involved in a complex financial scheme with Samuel Israel http://www.cnbc.com/id/25495282 and Bayou Investments involving a fee of $10 million to be paid to Nichols for services rendered for assistance in the locating of a mysterious $250 billion U.S. treasury note http://desertfae.com/wordpress/?p=270 that is secured by 2,500 metric tons of gold that sits in the Atlanta Federal Reserve. Israel, who after being convicted for large scale financial fraud faked his own suicide, allegedly jumping off of a bridge and leaving on the hood of his SUV traced in dust the words "Suicide is Painless" never was able to obtain the T-Note (which was sitting in a London Safe Deposit Company and has been seized) subsequently sued Nichols for - get this - cheating him. Now here is the kicker, according to papers filed by Nichols the transaction was conducted under the premise of "matters of national interest" and according to a Bloomberg story (Bayou's Israel Was Cheated in Scam Investigator Says http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601127&sid=aLCwdJsx0V3M&refer=law ) was vouched for by a member of the Bush family, John P. Ellis http://www.thestreet.com/story/10243545/bayou-and-the-bush-cousin.html whose previous claim to fame was calling the rigged 2000 election for George W. Bush while working for FOX News. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2000/nov/19/uselections2000.usa2 When doing an objective review of the myriad scandals and dirty deeds in America over the past 50 or so years it is astounding just how many times that a member of the Bush crime family is involved but more on them later.

Now what is of greater interest pertaining to Nichols is that he was deeply involved in the Cabazon Reservation activities as well as tied in to Danny Casolaro's doomed investigation of The Octopus. Nichols had contributed much to Casolaro and he had previously worked as a partner of political prisoner Michael Riconosciuto http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Riconosciuto on projects on weapons development at the Cabazon Indian Reservation and the ongoing activities there through the company Meridian Arms.

Riconosciuto was the technical wizard who performed the alteration of the PROMIS software on the reservation to include the "back door" feature that would go on to figure so prominently in the espionage activities that it was later used for - political and financial. With the activities at the reservation including weapons development, training of paramilitaries and money laundering it was a veritable spook nest and the use of sovereign Indian lands for unauthorized purposes is something that needs to be seriously investigated. Author Joel Bainerman, in his book The Crimes of a President http://books.google.com/books?id=-CwkeJq6ozMC&dq=The+Crimes+of+a+President&printsec=frontcover&source=bl&ots=pqkE1RZ_1I&sig=TqLtxyMEQYTHLr3rxwhI7E1V9XE&hl=en&ei=pN1cSr_UH5GHmQeZh_HpDQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2#v=onepage&q=&f=false referred to the reservation as a "CIA cutout", with the revelations in Baca's KESQ series that three other local Indian tribes were also being investigated http://www.kesq.com/Global/story.asp?S=8993895&nav=menu191_1_1_4 in the Alvarez murders and the weapons testing activities at the Cabazon reservation the question is to what extent has this sort of piggybacking of black ops on sovereign land existed throughout the country and for how long.

With Nichols being a connected guy he would be a hugely important source for Casolaro, or was he a disinformation agent? According to sources, Nichols and Casolaro spoke often and at length in the month before Casolaro's demise. Nichols, it must be noted also allegedly had organized crime ties to the Gambino crime family http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gambino_crime_family as well as to the Japanese Yakuza. It has already been established that the CIA and Shadow Government had regularly worked with organized crime figures (see Operation Underworld http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Underworld ) including those who had been burned by Castro's takeover of Cuba. Again, the war against communism, Cuba in this case provided blanket justification for lawlessness, nefarious alliances and the deviation from accepted American ideals.With Nazi war criminals already on board with the CIA, ties with The Syndicate were consistent with the pattern. In this context, the question must be asked regarding Robert Booth Nichols and whether he was sanctioned as a contact with the organized crime elements on behalf of the establishment. It should be recognized that the mob played a part in forging the political careers of many an influential U.S. figures, Ronald Reagan and Richard M. Nixon to name a few. It would be na´ve to not believe that many of our elected representatives are not just as much in the pockets of organized crime as they are with other interests that threaten the system as a whole. (I would recommend this piece http://desertfae.com/wordpress/?p=166 as food for thought as it references a current influential politican who has been a party to much of the overt criminality of the past several years, primarily as an accomplice).

The presence of Robert Booth Nichols in the milieu surrounding Casolaro's research as well as with Bayou Investments and the $250 billion treasury note is just another example of the interconnectivity between the underworld and the overworld. The financial aspects of this cannot be downplayed in the wake of the global meltdown that is largely due to the shadow banking system comprised of offshore banks largely exempt from U.S. laws, money laundering, pools of black money, narcotics/weapons dealing profits and speculative finance that have been a permanent fixture of the oligarchy's financial matrix. Any legitimate investigation of power in the U.S. must include an analysis of intricate financial institutions, layered in Enron style subversion and patterned after CIA/Wall Street front companies expressly created for the purpose of funding off-the-books operations.

Tentacles of the Octopus

"We will know that we have succeeded when everything the public believes is false."

- William J. Casey

It must be understood that there has always been a powerful segment of this country that has been enamored with fascism as the perfect sort of government that would support the long-term evolution of capitalism itself. Fortune Magazine once featured a fawning cover story extolling the virtues of Benito Mussolini's corporatist/fascist state in pre-WW II Italy and even Hitler had ardent admirers in America. It cannot be emphasized strongly enough that the precursors to today's Wall Street ruling elite were perfectly willing to do business with the Nazi regime as long as it was in their short term financial interests to do so. Let me be emphatic that this is NOT an attack on capitalism itself but rather on those who are able to use the system to advance their interests and agendas and to destroy any and all impediments and obstacles. I would like to opine that the system is fatally flawed and like communism, contains the seeds of its own demise, what is going on right now is a testament to that.

In order for the bastardized form of capitalism that exists today (largely through the machinations of those that I am addressing in this section) to continue to evolve it must become much more authoritarian in nature, the early forms of fascism are too ostentatious for the more sophisticated era in which we now live so we need to look more to China as the current role model. For profit prisons, all encompassing surveillance, a militarized police state, compromised courts and above all the possibility of disappearance into a gulag system with no trial and the nearly codified indefinite detention along with torture must be a tool for which to exercise control over the dissenters and the rabble.

The conditions for the creation of the Octopus, or as Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._Fletcher_Prouty would refer to it, a Secret Team http://www.ratical.org/ratville/JFK/ST/ST.html were set into motion with Harry S. Truman's much maligned creation of the National Security State with the signing into law of the National Security Act of 1947 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Security_Act_of_1947 . This set into up the post WW II world and allowed for the use of the intelligence services to be used to perpetuate their wartime stance into a permanent fixture of U.S. policy. The act also created the CIA although its original mandate would be expanded to include the anti-democratic functions that it has since become known for. In creating the CIA, the successor of the wartime Office of Strategic Services (OSS) there would be no end to the warfare state, only a redirection into clandestine and covert activities that would include destabilization of governments deemed 'unfriendly' to U.S. interests, propaganda, sabotage, training and support of paramilitary forces and above all snooping.

Being that the OSS largely grew out of the Eastern Establishment and the Skull and Bones types (from which it drew recruits) it would naturally serve the interests of Wall Street finance oligarchs, corporations, industrialists, oil barons and other moguls. It would also due to the very nature of secrecy under which it existed be a fertile ground for rogue elements, private CIA's within the CIA so to speak.
I do want to state that the CIA is far from the only U.S. intelligence agency; there are many and too often they are lumped in with the CIA as it is the most prominent. There are at least sixteen separate intelligence agencies and those are only the ones that we know about and there is often collaboration with foreign intelligence to circumvent laws and ensure plausible deniability. The CIA though is unique in that it was created to serve as an enforcement arm for the Wall Street elite and the money power, its primary obligation is not to the United States itself but that element that exists in the shadows. I recommend reading: How the CIA Created a Ruling, Corporate Overclass in America http://existentialistcowboy.blogspot.com/2008/01/how-cia-created-ruling-corporate.html for some very good examples.

Former Nazi CIA Asset Reinhard Gehlen

The Wall Street cultivated OSS was established in 1942 by the hated Franklin D. Roosevelt, a man whom the financial elite once tried to overthrow (see the Business Plot http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_Plot ) to consolidate intelligence during the war. William 'Wild Bill' Donovan http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/2WWdonovanW.htm , a powerful member of the Eastern Establishment and a Wall Street lawyer would head it up. Other OSS luminaries with elite pedigrees would include Allen Dulles (of firm Sullivan and Cromwell, another Wall Street business that didn't shy away from doing business with the Nazis) who would go on to play an integral role in the CIA as it developed. Dulles would be a key force in Operation Paperclip, the assimilation of Third Reich refugee war criminals into the CIA and sciences where their Nazi experience could be drawn upon to serve what would one day become The Homeland. Dulles, who would later become head of the CIA was unceremoniously forced out after the botched Bay of Pigs invasion by John F. Kennedy who was sufficiently aware of the dirty deeds of America's unofficial terrorist organization would threaten to "splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds". The accompanying blowback took care of Kennedy and in what should go down as one of the greatest conflicts of interest in American history Allan Dulles would go on to become a member of the Warren Commission http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKwarrenR.htm 'investigating' the assassination and coming up with the crazed lone gunman conclusion.

Now let me make it clear that I personally have an attitude of ambivalence towards mob and organized crime in general, it's just another line of work as far as I am concerned. So with that out of the way what I do have a problem with are government bureaucrats, U.S. military and intelligence and elected officials crossing the line into where they become gangsters themselves by working with organized crime. This is a very important aspect in what has gone seriously wrong in America post WW II in that the lines were not only blurred but the shadow government and the mob (as well as international organized crime syndicates) actively joined forces, knowingly and willingly for an agenda that ran counter to long term American interests and the CIA was responsible for allowing this to happen.

But I digress....

The OSS was also a breeding ground for virulent right-wingers, military men and dyed in the wool fascists with axes to grind against the communist devils. One of these men was General Edward Lansdale http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/COLDlansdale.htm , a serious reactionary who was involved in anti-Castro plotting and allegedly, according to some, notably L. Fletcher Prouty was in Dallas on the day of the Kennedy assassination (as were others including Richard M. Nixon and George H.W. Bush but more on that in the next section) where he was allegedly seen in the vicinity of the 'three tramps'. Other prominent spooks from the OSS would include future CIA chiefs William Colby http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/SScolby.htm (also of the Phoenix Program http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_Program ) and William Casey http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKcaseyW.htm whose tenure under Reagan would occur during the Iran-Contra period and intersect with the PROMIS software ordeal.

General Lansdale, as legend has it, was involved with gold taken from vanquished WW II enemies (see Yamashita's Gold http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamashita ) and using it to provide funding for black operations. The illegal narcotics trade would also prove to be a useful source in providing operational money for secret wars and off the books operations. Lansdale's work against the Castro regime would bring him into contact with Theodore Shackley http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKshackley.htm aka The Blond Ghost out of the Miami JMWAVE http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKjmwave.htm headquarters [note that George Bush's Zapata Corporation also allegedly had ties to this operation, likely a CIA front]. Ted Shackley would go on to turn up in an astounding number of scandals and shadow government operations over the years. Shackley was identified by Danny Casolaro as a part of the dirty old boy network that would become The Octopus so keep that in mind. When the work against Cuba was no longer a top priority with the Vietnam War ratcheting up, Shackley was sent to Southeast Asia where he was involved along with other anti-Castro operatives namely Felix Rodriguez http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKroderiguez.htm , Thomas Clines http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKclinesT.htm and Edwin Wilson http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKwilsonE2.htm (among others) in CIA operations such as the Phoenix Program (note also that the aforementioned Earl Brian who was a benefactor of the illegal sales of PROMIS was associated with this fearsome assassination and torture venture as well), the Secret Team was now up and running in another war zone where their skills could be fully utilized. I also want to note that regarding the anti-Castro operation from which so many of these rogue operators sprang also produced the infamous E. Howard Hunt http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKhuntH.htm , a veteran spook who at least according to a deathbed 'confession' recording had inside knowledge of the Kennedy assassination (this from a Rolling Stone article The Last Confessions of E. Howard Hunt http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/story/13893143/the_last_confessions_of_e_howard_hunt ). Interestingly enough, Hunt would go on to be one of the Watergate burglars who Nixon feared was going to spill his guts about that "Bay of Pigs thing" . Hunt's wife Dorothy would be killed in a suspicious plane crash which is described in Carl Oglesby's book The Yankee and Cowboy War in chapter seven which is transcribed here http://manageableants.blogspot.com/2009_04_01_archive.html . Hunt, like Shackley was suspected by Casolaro to be a member of The Octopus.

                                                     
                                                     Ted Shackley aka The Blond Ghost

Once in Vietnam, the Shackley operation would draw in the next generation of shadow government figures including Richard Secord http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKsecordR.htm , Richard Armitage and Oliver North http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/NSAEBB/NSAEBB113/ who would all turn up later during the ongoing operations of "The Enterprise" http://www.fas.org/irp/offdocs/walsh/chap_08.htm during Iran-Contra. North and Secord specifically would play key roles, augmented by key neocons within the bureaucracy such as Elliott Abrams http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Elliott_Abrams , John Negroponte http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=John_Negroponte , Michael Ledeen http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Michael_Ledeen , John Poindexter http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=John_Poindexter and most importantly Vice President George Herbert Walker Bush. The Vietnam group that had coalesced around Shackley would also be involved in the Nugan Hand Bank http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKnuganbank.htm , a conduit for dirty money (drugs, guns) that would be redirected to fund the secret off the books spook wars under the ideological cover of the battle against communist influence. The Nugan Hand Bank operated until 1980 when Frank Nugan http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKnugan.htm , an Australian lawyer with more shady connections than the proverbial switchboard and under investigation for stock fraud was found dead in his Mercedes-Benz, the victim of what appeared to be a self inflicted gunshot wound, his wallet contained the business card of William Colby http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/SScolby.htm in his wallet. The other half of Nugan Hand was former Green Beret Michael Jon Hand http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKhandM.htm whose special operations experience allegedly included a good amount of work in the Golden Triangle http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Triangle_(Southeast_Asia) with the heroin trade. Hand disappeared and was never seen again after Nugan's death.

The Nugan Hand bank with its extremely high rates of return, tax-free accounts and promises of anonymity was a model that would eventually be replicated and in today's convoluted morass of offshore banking and fraudulent high finance there are likely thousands of smaller operations, of note is the recent scandal involving high rolling Texan investment guru Alan Stanford and his suspected involvement in money laundering for Mexican drug cartels http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/feb/22/allen-stanford-drugs-trade-mexico . The system has become thoroughly polluted, corrupted and rigged in order to benefit the Wall Street oligarchy that was so instrumental in originally setting up the CIA. With the blueprint for such grand scale financial chicanery that was originally a big part of black ops monetary alchemy available and the entire system eventually honeycombed with the sort of illicit, amoral types that were all too willing to grab onto the teats of the anti-communist cash cow. With the Vietnam experience an ugly and tragic blight on the American consciousness, Nixon run out of Washington in disgrace and the ruling corporate establishment hydra reconfiguring itself out of the ashes there would be a haven for The Octopus and its operatives within the shining palace of American renewal that would be erected as a temple for the soon to be annoited savior and heroic all-American warrior king Ronald Reagan and Vice President George Herbert Walker Bush - the man who would claim be "out of the loop" during the Iran-Contra operations .

Family Of Secrets


..the Bush Family is so heavily connected and is so interwoven with this systemic fraud, they're concerned about a cascade effect within the public. They don't mind if one incident comes out that they can point to it as an isolated incident. What they're concerned about is the public beginning to understand the level of corruption that exists within all agencies of government and the intricate connection the Bush family has had to this fraud over the decades.

- Al Martin (author of The Conspirators' Secrets of an Iran-Contra Insider)



                                                             


The involvement of a member of the Bush family, cousin John P. Ellis with Samuel Israel of Bayou Investments and the $250 billion treasury note http://desertfae.com/wordpress/?p=270 referenced earlier is a continuation of the amazing and ongoing presence of the Bush dynasty in post WW II America politics. The Bushes are generational scoundrels and have served the most powerful interests of the American oligarchy since the early days of the Twentieth Century. There have been a few excellent books written about the family and of note are Webster Griffin Tarpley's early and rather lurid tome that is entitled George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography http://www.tarpley.net/bushb.htm , Kevin Phillips' American Dynasty http://www.motherjones.com/media/2004/01/all-family and an extremely interesting recent book that has been completely ignored by the corporatist media (other than a few hit pieces) Family Of Secrets http://www.familyofsecrets.com/ by Russ Baker http://russbaker.com/ . The latter is particularly interesting in that it looks at the Bush family in the larger context of the ruling oligarchy and the system that serves it and has additional history on George H.W. Bush as a lifelong intelligence figure. I also not that Baker in interviews (see Family of Secrets site for links) has made the case that people like Bush family hatchetmen must be looked at in the larger context as being agents or operatives for the preservation of the larger oligarchical system albeit on a lower rung than the Bushes.

The Bush family runs like a poisonous serpent through recent American history. Their deep seated ties to the ruling oligarchy, the Ivy League Eastern Establishment and later the southern fried fascism of big oil, big religion and the sunbelt weapons colossus goes back for several generations. A good resource on the rise of the Bushes would be the aforementioned Kevin Phillips book which lays out the early history of these scoundrels. Further embellishment on the ill gotten gains, murky business dealings and political deviltry of the family can be found in the other two books. The early history of the Bushes is that of patriarchs Samuel P. Bush http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_P._Bush and the relation to gig oil, steel and munitions during the early period of the American Empire. Sam Bush was a big kahuna for a company called Buckeye Steel Castings http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buckeye_Steel_Castings , run by members of the Rockefeller family when they were tall in the saddle as some of the nation's foremost Robber Barons. He would eventually rise to a position of prominence with the War Industries Board http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_Industries_Board as director of the Small Arms, Ammunition and Ordnance Division prior to the U.S. entry into World War I. General Smedley D. Butler http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smedley_Butler was absolutely correct when he famously proclaimed in his seminal tract that War Is A Racket http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_is_a_Racket (a statement bordering on heresy in the current militarist America) and it would prove to be a very lucrative one indeed for the Bush Family.

Another early member of the House of Bush was George Herbert Walker http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Herbert_Walker 'Bert' Bush, a high rolling banking establishment type whose ties to the upper crust of the financial oligarchy, such as the railroad and financial elite Harriman family (Brown Brothers Harriman) would allow for the early fortification of power for the later generations. 'Bert' was a man who was able to parlay his connections and expertise in doing business with Russia and Germany post WW I and he would do much to ensure that Prescott, his son in law would get a primo position on Wall Street, with the lucrative business of the foreign clients who would later go on to infamy after they were armed by the money mongers whose only loyalty was to mammon, not country. It was under the stewardship of Prescott that the Bush family would take a darker turn. As a famous alumnus of the Yale secretive society Skull and Bones http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skull_and_Bones Dubya's grandpa gained notoriety for being one of the Bonesmen who raided the grave of Indian warrior Geronimo and took his skull as a trophy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geronimo#Alleged_theft_of_skull

It was the Skull and Bones pedigree that punched Prescott Bush's ticket into the upper echelon of the American fascist club and while I am not going to into these secret societies here, many of which are mischaracterized as being satanic or occult oriented rather than what they truly are which is a bunch of rich pricks determined to keep the game rigged. Skull and Bones is well known for the influential and interconnected members who engage in bizarre initiation rituals and swear allegiance to each other as they work together to ensure that the status quo remains intact. It should be mentioned that both candidates in the 2004 Presidential election, George W. Bush and John Kerry (who ran the Kerry Commission that later would investigate or as cynics would portend 'cover up' allegations of CIA involvement in drug trafficking associated with Iran-Contra) were from Skull and Bones. A look at the roster of alumni from this secret group alone shows the influence of a very small and selective oligarchy in America.

Prescott Bush followed the trajectory of his faulty moral compass (and the call of the fascist elements of his era) to work with Wall Steet interests in helping to build the Nazi war machine, reputedly as a money launderer for Hitler's murderous regime through the Union Banking Corporation which served German magnate Fritz Thyssen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fritz_Thyssen the German industrialist known as "Hitler's Angel" who was indispensable in providing the financial backing and carried clout that would create what was then the strongest military machine in the world as well as the most bellicose. While the Bush-Nazi links received no attention domestically in our neutered, corporatist media here is an article from The Guardian, How Bush's grandfather helped Hitler's rise to power http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2004/sep/25/usa.secondworldwar and here is a link to another piece by journalist John Buchanan that is entitled Bush Nazi Link Confirmed http://www.nhgazette.com/the-bushnazi-stories/bushnazi-link-confirmed/ that was published in the New Hampshire Gazette. The Nazi skeleton is but one of a great number in the Bush family closets and potentially the most damning of all. The Union Banking Corporation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_Banking_Corporation would be shut down by FDR in 1942 under the Trading With the Enemy Act, just another reason for the American fascists to burn for revenge against Roosevelt and fuel the fire for their relentless crusade against New Deal policies that continues to this day.

Prescott Bush went on to be an extremely influential figure in U.S. politics in the post-war era, his son George H.W. Bush would cut his teeth in intelligence, dirty dealing and black ops as a matter of family heritage, the father would pass down the business to his spawn in the truly American fashion. Phillips pegs it dead on here in describing the Bush Crime Family as:

A great family (great as in power, not morality) that has bulit a base over the course of the Twentieth Century in the back corridors of the new military-industrial complex and in close association with the growing intelligence and national security establishment.

The father of the 41st President and the grandfather of the most overtly fascist and recently departed leader in U.S. history, George W. Bush burrowed deeply into the establishment. He became a Senator in 1952 and as legend has it helped to groom Richard M. Nixon for his rise as a tool of the establishment.

                                                   
                                                        Dick Nixon and Prescott Bush

Nixon's political career was formed by his run for a California Congressional seat where he was backed by big money power (post-WW II fascist elements)against incumbent Jerry Voorhis http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Voorhis , a backer of the New Deal and a man who had run afoul of the oligarchy for his opposition to Standard Oil and a secret government drilling contract in the Elk Hills reserve that he had exposed before Congress. Voorhis was a marked man and was challenging Wall Street power at every opportunity, railing agains the "cancerous superstructure of monopolies and cartels". It was Nixon who would perform the political hit on Voorhis, subjecting him to a withering onlsaught of red baiting propaganda, the sort that would become religion in the U.S. as the war against the unions and the middle class began in earnest. Nixon would later go on to play a big part in the poisonous culture wars that have so ill-served this country and which we can now see the wreckage of in our thoroughly corrupted, diseased political system and the new feudalism as exemplified by the massive redistribution of wealth to reinflate speculative capitalism and the big Wall Street banks.

Russ Baker does some very interesting analysis in his Family Of Secrets, especially in regard to George H.W. Bush (aka Poppy) who appears to have been a member of intelligence dating back to at least the 1950's instead of when he was formally put in charge of the CIA in 1976. There is the very interesting story that Poppy is 'unable' to remember exactly where he was on the day of the JFK assassination (interestingly Nixon was in Dallas that day too) which in and of itself is odd, Baker makes the following statement in an interview:

I am very careful not to speculate. What I do is begin with the curious fact that G.H.W. Bush has said he could not remember where he was on November 22, 1963. That makes him just about the only adult alive at the time who has that memory defect.

Which in and of itself proves nothing but it is very unusual that Mr. Bush would not remember where he was, even more so when considering the existence of a memo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bush_Sr,_JFK_-_J_Edgar_Hoover_memo_2.jpg from then FBI head J. Edgar Hoover on the Kennedy assassination dated 11/29/63 that specifically mentions a "Mr. George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency". Bush and the CIA denied that they were the same person (another George Bush briefly worked for the CIA at the time, perhaps brought in as a cover) but there is the matter of Bush's company the Zapata Corp. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zapata_Corporation that has been linked to the CIA as a front, according to Baker the CIA helped Bush to establish this company http://whowhatwhy.com/2007/01/07/cia-bush-senior-oil-venture/ . Note that during the Bay of Pigs, the code name for the invasion was Operation Zapata http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zapata_Corporation#Bay_of_Pigs . During this particular period Bush would become familiar with some of the aforementioned anti-Cuban operatives such as Ted Shackley, E. Howard Hunt, Felix Rodriguez and an interesting figure by the name of Barry Seal http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barry_Seal . Seal, like many others would eventually turn up again in the milieu of drug dealers, gun runners and black operations that swirled around Iran-Contra when Bush was in the White House as Reagan's V.P.

George H.W. Bush's connections to many of the most shadowy figures and operations of the past half century as well as the criminal nature of his entire family make a strong argument that the ongoing destabilization of the United States by fascists has been aided greatly by the Bushes. I don't have the time to go into every aspect (I'll save it for the future) but the evolution of the Bush family from well connected servants of the early robber barons, to the arms trade, the Nazis and the smuggled out war criminals who would greatly aid and assimilate themselves into the intelligence services and the war against communism on through the JFK assassination, Vietnam, Iran Contra and ultimately the ruinous eight year reign of the Bush-Cheney regime have been instrumental in the fascist takeover of America.

An interesting footnote is the association of Bush's son Neil to the brother of John W. Hinkley Jr., the disturbed young man who attempted to kill President Reagan. Neil Bush and Scott Hinkley had dinner plans the night after the botched assassination, interesting bit of happenstance or perhaps a postponement of a celebration? Assassination researcher John Judge http://www.ratical.org/ratville/JFK/JohnJudge/112600.html made the following comment on this:

They knew each other socially quite well. The press said that they were to have dinner -- Scott Hinkley and Neil Bush were to have dinner on March 31 1981. But they cancelled the dinner after the news of the shooting. The press said that that was ironic. It gives a new meaning to the word 'irony'.

Because if Robert Oswald, Lee Harvey's older brother and Lynda Bird Johnson were going to have dinner the night of the JFK assassination, somebody would figure out it meant something.

One can never be too suspicious of such sort of things when they involve members of the Bush family. Hinckley the shooter had ties to World Vision, a right-wing organization that allegedly acted as a CIA front run by John W. Hinkley Sr. that worked in Central America. Rumors of mind control (manchurian candidates?) have surfaced in regard to World Vision but whatever activities surround it are like most of our history, concealed behind the veil of secrecy.

Some credence can however be given to the CIA's long history of mind control experiments (MKULTRA) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_MKULTRA , the secret wars waged against leftist governments in the Southern Cone and the really creepy story that Mark David Chapman, the killer of the hated-by-the-establishment John Lennon also had ties to World Vision.

I would strongly encourage everybody who has taken the time to read this to do your own research on the connections between the Bush family and the downward trajectory of this once great country into the fascist gangster state that it has become today and despite the disgraced rule of George W. Bush he was after all able to successfully eviscerate the Constitution during his time in office as well as to put into place the most formidable high-tech police state in the history of mankind. The economy has been destroyed, the privatization projects of the fascists are now a reality and with more states in financial distress along the lines of California there will soon be national fire sales of roads, infrastructure and landmarks to the descendants of the early Robber Barons whose power has been consolidated by insiders such as the Bush family beyond their wildest of dreams. The only things that the United States of America is now capable of producing is death, destruction, financial scams, for profit prisons, paranoia and a massive Big Brother style surveillance and repression apparatus that is the envy of all dictators.

And the Bush family isn't finished yet, Jeb is coming soon and that you can count on.

Conclusion: The Octopus Ascendant


                                                          
                                                          Obama and Potemkin, America 2009


While it initially began with clandestine operations and murky, beneath the surface alliances The Octopus has become the underlying but inextricable operating system for the American capitalist empire as it exists today. It is the very kernel of all that we known and now has gone legit or perhaps more appropriately the system has descended to the level of corruption once the domain of rogue forces within. It has been a long and slow process, layered over the decades as the last vestiges of a free system where liberty is paramount has been leeched out leaving in its place a land that is America in name only, except that shingle has been replaced with one that says Homeland, a fitting legacy for the fascists who used the aftermath of WW II to mount their takeover. Now The Octopus is comprised of much more and it's gone corporate, ponder how the following tentacles have become interconnected and now dominate our ever declining way of life:
 
1. Energy and Resources (Soon to include privatized food and water...got money? I sure hope so if you plan on any sort of a continued existence)

2. Banking and Finance (The recent financial crisis has allowed the most powerful of institutions to essentially take over the government so that tax dollars will be directed to shore up their bogus markets and Ponzi schemes)

3. Transportation and Infrastructure(Our airports have already been transformed into Soviet bloc style checkpoints, it's all a matter of conditioning and time until all freedom of movement has been restricted entirely, the tracking chips are already being successfully sold to fearful parents as prevention against child abduction.)

4. Drugs(Pharmaceuticals are giving narcotics a run for their money and there will be no serious efforts at meaningful reform)

5. Munitons, Military Spending(Oceania always has been and always will be at war)

6. Geopolitics(The coups, destabilizations, puppet dictatorships, torture and ethnic cleansings will go on, it's all business as usual - for an intersting perspective see Tom Hayden's piece from The Nation entitled Understanding the Long War) http://www.thenation.com/doc/20090525/hayden

7. Media (Would anything be possible without the wonderful complicity of the media. The CIA had it right with Operation Mockingbird http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKmockingbird.htm , it would only be further refined over time with the rise of the right-wing, corporatist think tanks, the ginned up attack on the 'liberal' media and the rise of cable television, the corporatization and consolidation have built a propaganda machine that not even Goebbels cound have envisioned. The mass hypnosis that has narcotized an entire population through television has been an astounding boon for the fascists.)

8. Intelligence (The 'terrorist' attacks of 9/11 have legitimized the ubiquitous surveillance of the American people helped along by the technology of PROMIS and Main Core, our new forms of social control are already being beta tested by American corporations in China. See Naomi Klein's piece on China's All-Seeing Eye http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/story/20797485/chinas_allseeing_eye from Rolling Stone Magazine).

And it's all tied up in the big, shiny, star-spangled package of Empire.

The Obama administration has been a major disappointment in reining in any of the power of the fascist state established by his predecessors. I seriously am beginning to think that he doesn't care, nor do any of the Democrats who triumphantly retook the White House and the Congress - they are the insiders now and they control the cash spigots, and most importantly they have favors to pay back. Americans were promised change; here are a few of the changes that we have received to this point: a continuation of domestic spying, a bailout of the fraudulent financial system of Wall Street speculation, the Federal Reserve creating trillions of dollars out of nothing, apologies for torture (whoops - enhanced interrogation techniques - my bad), the failure to prosecute war criminals, a continuation of anti-labor practices, more secrecy (the suppression of the additonal Abu Ghraib photos), plans to censor the internet, the diabolical conflation of dissenters and extremists (terrorists) by the anti-American Department of Homeland Security and coming soon, the bait and switch of a public health care option that would only allow the filthy scoundrels in the insurance industry and the Wall Street profiteers to further enrich themselves while beggaring the population.And of course there are the wars, dealing in the death and devastation it is far too lucrative of a business to ever abandon and the swords that should long ago have been beaten back into plowshares are being honed to razor sharpness and pointed at the necks of all Americans who chose awareness and enlightenment over denial and acquiescence.

Face it, the same people who once glorified Benito Mussolini on the cover of Fortune Magazine for his wondrous corporatist state have won and we are their subjects, their slaves, their chattel and if you don't like it you can go and live in a for profit prison or simply disappear without any possiblity of a trial for the rest of your life. As American capitalism and its excesses gradually mutated from the original petri dish of the post World War II era world, the corruption, the greed and the pathological need for the necessary control for it to exist on a grand scale has metastasized to the point where it has consumed all, instead of The Octopus a more fitting metaphor for all that has taken place is the 1950's science fiction movie The Blob.

What happens now is no longer a matter of simply exposing the elements that set into motion the chain of events that are now reaching critical mass but in waging total war against the entire system itself through acts of civil disobedience and refusal to comply, I would caution those who are instigating for a full blown revolution, the rulers have bigger guns and more money than God, you are but ants to them and you will be squashed if you use violence to rebel. That is the only way that there will be a chance for survival now that the state has been weaponized against the people, equipped with a monstrous high technological surveillance system that morphed out of the theft of the PROMIS software and the police state infrastructure that grew out of the Reagan era programs such as Garden Plot http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Garden_Plot , Cable Splicer http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Operation_Cable_Splicer and REX 84 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rex_84 . The plans for the camps are ready if not the camps themselves... it has become fashionable to demonize those who now speak of them albeit ironic that the loudest of them never uttered a peep when George W. Bush was in charge of generating the pick-up lists.

But for the most part America sleeps. The coronation of Barack Obama, a product, a brand name and a triumph of modern public relations and marketing has provided the soothing balm for the raw sores on backs courtesy of the Bush administration. For a television addicted nation of sheep content to live on the world's largest lemming farm he is their perfect leader, a reality television show president, crooning sweet words while his actions belie the rhetoric. The vast majority of the fools will still be watching American Idol when the jackboots kick in their doors.

The Rise of the Obama Police State–An Early Demonstration?

By Guest on August 10th, 2009

ScreenPrint_90

By Robert Romano
Americans for Limited Government

“We don’t want interacting,” said the police officer, to the shock of the conservative activist holding the camera. She was in Baton Rouge, LA, filming a demonstration by ACORN in favor of Barack Obama’s proposed government-run health care. And what she had just witnessed, as the officer led the offending man away who had dared speak to the activist, was nothing short of the disruption of free speech, of the press, and of the right to assemble—by the police.

As reported by the Examiner, “Things took a surprising and dangerous turn when a police officer, clearly sympathetic to the ACORN rally, attempts to shut down the opposition. At one point, during a very civil discussion between an opponent and a supporter of the president’s plan, the police officer returned and actually told the individuals opposing the president’s plan they were not allowed to speak. The man in blue shirt, a supporter of the president’s plan, later returns and attempts to defend the free speech rights of the counter protesters.”

For all intents and purposes, she was reporting on the demonstration. And yet, every time she attempted to converse with opponents of ObamaCare, the police intervened. Not exactly what one would call the protection of unalienable rights. It looks more like a police state—in its infancy.

On Wikipedia, a police state is described, “The inhabitants of a police state experience restrictions on their mobility, and on their freedom to express or communicate political or other views, which are subject to police monitoring or enforcement.” Exactly what was seen in Baton Rouge.

In this case, nobody was arrested. But it is troubling, to say the least, that the police were apparently ordered to disrupt any interaction between supporters and opponents of ObamaCare, even ones that were perfectly willing to debate.

“We disagree. We can have a civil conversation and talk while we walk. We disagree. It’s fine,” said one ObamaCare supporter, who too was disgusted by the police action.

Really, the ones who had obviously expressed a desire to avoid even civil discourse of their views were the ACORN demonstrators. Of course, there is no such thing as freedom from speech, or debate. But if one does not like what is being said, they can simply move to the other side of the street.

But since they were protesting, wasn’t the point to defend their views? When they put themselves out there, as members of a self-described public interest organization, they actually are public figures—a part of the national political debate. That makes the views expressed by the organization subject to public scrutiny by press or citizen journalists alike.

Instead, in Omerica, apparently there is the stunning emergence of a political elite. They are beyond reproach and criticism. And the police will see to that, as can be seen in this appalling display.
