The emerging profile of the Bush administration-moderately conservative and multi-racial-is a facade. To see their real agenda one has to examine the administration's ideological source-the Manhattan Institute. GW may cultivate the image of a plain-talkin' good ole boy who prefers barbecuing to making policy, but virtually every idea presented as central to his agenda comes from this elite east coast institution.
A little background
MI (The Manhattan Institute) was started in 1978 by William Casey, one of the top intelligence operatives in US history. During WWII Casey worked with OSS chief William Donavan and Allen Dulles to bring top level Nazi officials to the US where they were recruited into the newly-formed CIA, the military, government-connected medical research institutions and the media. The stated rational for importing Hitler's top intelligence operatives, social scientists and propagandists to the US was that they would be employed in fighting Communism-exactly what Hitler claimed he used them for. In reality they were brought here to help establish fascism in America-a goal which they are increasingly succeeding at. Before WWII started Dulles was involved with GW's grandfather Prescott Bush on Wall Street where, along with George Herbert Walker (Prescott Bush's father-in-law) they operated banks and shipping companies that were later declared by the US Congress to be fronts for the Nazis. In 1942 shortly after the US entered WWII the assets of these Wall Street companies were seized by the US government under the Trading With The Enemy Act. Dulles was the legal counsel for both Standard Oil and for Nazi Germany's I.G. Farben-one of the world's largest industrial powerhouses-which was co-owned by the Rockefeller family-the main funders of the Manhattan Institute. The US ambassador to Germany at the time had this to say about The Rockefellers, the Bush's, the Mellons (owners of Alcoa) and the other wealthy Americans who were backing Hitler and promoting Eugenics, or scientific racism: "A clique of U.S. industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany. I have had plenty of opportunity in Berlin to witness how close some of our American ruling families are to the Nazi regime. . .They extended aid to help Fascism occupy the seat of power, and they are helping to keep it there." - William Dodd, U.S. mbassador to Germany, 1937.-Facts and Fascism, G Seldes, p. 122 Also, Trading with the Enemy, Charles Higham, p.167
When IG Farben was broken up after Germany lost the war its parts
became the top pharmaceutical companies in the world- BASF, Hoechst,
Bayer AG, Agfa-Gevaert and Cassella AG. Today these companies, along
with Pfizer and Eli Lilly-which former President George Bush headed
from 1977-1979-are the largest manufacturers of prescription and over
the counter drugs sold in the U.S. Both the Pfizer and Eli Lilly drug
companies are sponsors of MI. These oil, pharmaceutical and Wall Street
investment banking elites are the foundations of the Rockefeller and
Bush dynasties and are the real constituents of the new Bush administration.
Being a business partner with the Third Reich posed no problem for Dulles
who became the first CIA director in 1947. In fact, their relationship
with the Nazis and Wall Street was exactly how Dulles, former Pres.
Bush and William Casey all became CIA directors. GW's father was made
CIA director in 1976. Shortly after creating the Manhattan Institute,
William Casey was made CIA director by Ronald Reagan. In 1954 Casey
put together a consortium of investors including top US intelligence
experts who had made fortunes on Wall Street to form Capital Cities.
In the interim, Casey served as Chairman of the Securities and Exchange
Commission from 1969 to 1977. By 1985 Casey's Capital Cities had so
much cash it was able to buy ABC and operate it as a propaganda arm
of the US government-which it continues to be today.
If you visit the MI website you will find a list of academics who
are their roster of so-called conservative experts. Their areas of expertise
are race, eliminating welfare, deregulation of business and the privatization
of virtually everything the government presently manages-including education,
prisons, parks, streets, social security, courts and welfare.
What's Hiding In GW's Cabinet?
"I'm very good at delegating authority...I'll surround myself with the best minds in America". Exactly who are these, best minds in America, and where is GW Bush getting them from?
There is a common thread connecting all of Bush's appointees so far-pharmaceuticals,
oil, Wall Street and the historical connection between the CIA, major
US corporations and Nazi Germany.
NJ Governor Christie Whitman is the Bush designee for the Environmental Protection Agency. Her massively polluted state hosts some of the world's largest oil refineries and chemical manufacturing plants. Environmental non-expert Whitman has said she doubts that the giant ozone hole over the North Pole or global warming are actually serious problems.
Donald L. Evans, the nominee for Commerce Secretary, is an insider in the Texas "oil mafia" and is GW's closest friend and confidant. He's also a close friend, confidant and contributor to one of America's biggest recipients of government contacts, Halliburton's Dick Cheney.
Rev. Floyd Flake, Dubya's nominee for Secretary of Education, was the only prominent African American leader in NYC to endorse Bush pal Rudy Giuliani, the racist NYC Mayor who has executed a seven year long campaign of violence, harassment and false arrest aimed at African Americans. Giuliani's most memorable quote on education was a proposal to blow up the entire NYC Board of Education. Last year, to his everlasting credit, Flake publicly denounced Giuliani as a mental case. Like numerous GW Bush aides and advisors, Rev. Flake is part of the CIA's Manhattan Institute which masterminded Giuliani's entire social eugenics agenda. Among the areas Flake is likely to focus on for Bush is turning public education over to religious institutions and corporations.
Ann M. Veneman, Bush's appointee for secretary of agriculture, was deputy secretary for agriculture under President George Bush. She is known as an advocate for letting corporations exploit public land and for widespread distribution of foods containing genetically-altered animal genes, viruses, self-contained insecticides and bacteria.
Bush has said he wants to open up Federal reserves, national forests and other pristine areas of public land to oil drilling, mining and road construction. Under Bush stewardship, we could see corporations running frankenfood farms in Yosemite or drilling for oil in the Grand Canyon.
John Ashcroft, GW's choice for Attorney General, is a self-styled moral crusader as strongly against abortion as he is enthusiastic about the death penalty. He lost his Senate seat in the 2000 election to an opponent who died during the campaign. Last year, Ashcroft received an honorary degree from Bob Jones University and is closely aligned with the Christian Coalition and Pat Robertson. Ashcroft is also an outspoken fan of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. He is known among lobbyists as an advocate for drug companies and the automotive industry and for preventing consumers from suing HMO's.
Mitchell E. Daniels Jr., nominated as director of the Office of Management and Budget was senior executive of the Eli Lilly drug company-which Bush's father headed from 1977-79. Daniels was also previously the president of the arch-conservative think tank Hudson Institute. Daniels, who advocates strict enforcement of laws against casual drug users, was arrested for marijuana possession in 1970.
Secretary of State designee Colin Powell is a lifelong operative of the CIA/military-industrial complex. While working for the Pentagon he helped cover up the Mai Lai massacre, the contra/arms deal and Gulf War Syndrome. Powell's fame derives from presiding over a war in which US troops were used as guinea pigs for experimental vaccines so that they could "safely" fight George Bush's friend Sadamn Hussein-who had been given the go ahead to attack Kuwait after being supplied with chemical and biological weapons by the Bush administration.
Like many of GW's appointees of color, Powell proudly admits he owes his career in large part to affirmative action while joining an administration that considers ending affirmative action one of its topmost priorities.
Condolezza Rice, Bush's National Security advisor was formerly a security advisor under President > George Bush and an aide to Colin Powell. She has the job of explaining the basic elements of foreign policy to GW, about which Bush admits to knowing almost nothing. A large part of her career was > involved in administering the CIA's foreign policy objectives. She serves on the board of Chevron Oil-known as one of the African continents most violent human rights abusers. A grateful Chevron recently named an oil tanker after her.
