George Herbert Walker Bush (1924 – 2018)

Today is George Herbert Walker Bush’s funeral. I don’t normally write notices for just-deceased politicians, so this is a departure for me. But something has aroused my curiosity.

I posted a very brief notice about his death, along with a stock photo, on my Facebook page Saturday morning when I learned of it, and left matters at that. For whatever reason …  I don’t have a “philosophical justification” for it … I am not comfortable speaking ill of the just-deceased.

So I posted Bush’s dates, the photo, and then got off Facebook. I forgot about it, and went and did typical Saturday chores like get groceries, change the cats’ litter boxes, etc.

Around the time my wife and I were finishing lunch, a phone call came from a friend of mine. She told me people were posting vulgarities and obscenities on my Facebook page. I didn’t connect this with the Bush post until she told me that’s where they were. I wasn’t sure what she wanted me to do. My page is basically a free speech “safe space” if you will, although like everyone else I have limits that if someone crosses more than once, that person is gone, blocked.

Curiously, I couldn’t get on the site right away. Other sites worked, so it wasn’t my computer or Internet connection. Perhaps two hours later, whatever the problem was, it cleared up. I scrolled down and saw what my friend had been talking about. One shouted:


This had three likes. Someone else wrote, more modestly:

I’m not one to wish evil upon anyone, but he was an Alister [sic.] Crowley fan and practiced the occult. He committed war crimes. He was also a pro NWO puppet. Glad he is gone!

Still another commenter wrote:

War criminal, occultist, and pedophile. Other than that, s [sic.] great guy!!

There were a few others along these lines, a couple of them now removed (not by me).

As I said, I am not comfortable speaking ill of the just-dead-body-still-warm. Others have told me something similar. What is behind this discomfort?

It is not as if Bush himself would have cared. Whatever else one says, he was as power elite as one gets, and the power elites surely don’t give a tinker’s damn what we peons think of him, good or ill.

Is it because the comments might be true, or contain at least some truth, and that the truth is sometimes unpleasant?

One thinks of the Iraq War, which many of us considered a ghastly mistake from the get-go. I certainly did, and nothing that has happened since has convinced me to change my mind. Do revelations like what went on at Abu Ghraib or the air strikes on funerals or the rendering of tens of thousands of Iraqis homeless for no good reason as it turned out rise to the level of war crimes? I leave that judgment to others, or, perhaps now, to the Almighty.

I have no idea one way or the other whether the man was into the occult, or a closet pedophile. I’ve no reason to think the latter. But only because I’ve never gone to the trouble to investigate the matter and find out one way or the other, unlike my having followed Iraq War coverage.

The question of whether I could trust any source (doubtless obtained via the Internet) harping on such things would doubtless come up, assuming I was willing to spare the time (I’m not).

So should we restrain ourselves on behalf of G.W.H. Bush’s surviving family members? We don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings, now, do we?

In Bush’s case, they surely know a certain segment of the public hated the man’s guts. While they probably wouldn’t care to read comments like those above, it isn’t like they wouldn’t get over it in, perhaps, three to five seconds….

Or do we exercise restraint, finally, on behalf of it not being his fault that he was born the son of a man who built what would become the family fortune laundering money for the Nazis….  I refer to Prescott Bush, of course.

Or that he would be involved with the CIA….

We come back to: I have no rational explanation for my sense of the need for restraint.

Maybe there isn’t one.

What we can say: another member of the Anglo-American power elite has gone to his eternal reward … such as it will be … joining David Rockefeller Sr. and Zbigniew Brzezinski, cofounders of the powerful Trilateral Commission….

Perhaps the most interesting comment that appeared on Facebook, or anywhere else, regarding the career trajectory of George Herbert Walker Bush did not initially appear on my page. Edited very lightly, it is quite possibly the most revealing thing I have yet to see about the 41st president of the United States.

It has to do with the long, slow-motion coup by the power elites, which of course went unreported outside leaflets and will never be seen in any Bush obit, but which reports on Bush’s role in the events that fundamentally destroyed whatever hope the U.S. might have had to become a Fifth Stage civilization as I used that term in my post-Comte essay below.

Obviously, I am not at liberty to reveal the name of the author. I can only assure you, I did not write this.

55 Years After the Coup Against U.S. President Kennedy

Prescott Bush and the Rockefellers were part of 40 bankers and industrialists that created the CIA after WWII, from the elite-run OSS (military intelligence).

George H. W. Bush was a manager of the CIA’s Bay of Pigs operation in 1962. He organized the training, arms supply, and ships for 2,000 Cuban exiles from Miami to attack Cuba. He signed the rental agreement for five of the seven ships that were used.

David Ferrie and Lee Harvey Oswald were involved with CIA men Clay Shaw and Guy Bannister in running guns from New Orleans and Dallas to Miami, for the Bay of Pigs invasion.

George Bush of the CIA was in the Dallas Petroleum Club with oil mogul Clint Murchison Sr. and his oil engineer George de Mohrenschildt.

Murchison was the central coordinator of the JFK assassination. De Mohrenschildt was the CIA’s handler for Lee Harvey Oswald, and testified before the Warren Commission about getting approval from the CIA for his close connection to Oswald.

George de Mohrenschildt wrote a letter to CIA Director George Bush in 1977 pleading for relief from CIA harassment for saying that the CIA had killed Kennedy. Bush replied, saying that it was not the CIA that was shadowing him. But, the CIA later admitted to going through de Mohrenschildt’s things in his home. They found that he had many Christmas cards from CIA and former OSS men.

As he was about to testify before the House Select Committee on Assassinations, in 1977, George de Mohrenschildt was found dead from a shotgun blast to the head, which was ruled a suicide.

Clint Murchison was a long-time major donor to LBJ. And, J. Edgar Hoover and LBJ were neighbors in DC, and would travel to Dallas together to visit Murchison and his mobbed-up dog track in Dallas.

Murchison owned the Del Mar horse track in California and would entertain J. Edgar Hoover at the race track and put him up for free at his El Charro hotel. Murchison also entertained Richard Nixon, and mob bosses Sam Giancana of Chicago and Carlos Marcello of New Orleans, at Del Mar and put them up at the El Charro hotel.

The Chicago mob and the New Orleans mob worked together on gambling operations throughout the South and in Las Vegas.

Jack Ruby was a Chicago mobster who worked for Sam Giancana. Ruby is buried in a Chicago suburb. Ruby’s job was to pay off the Dallas police for mob gambling enterprises in Dallas.

On the night before the Kennedy assassination, LBJ went to a party at Murchison’s family home in Dallas, very late in the evening, about 11 PM, after campaigning in Houston. LBJ’s long time mistress, Madeleine Brown, a real estate executive, stated that LBJ went into a meeting at the party with …

– oil mogul Clint Murchison, Sr.

– J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI

– Richard Nixon (who helped plan Bay of Pigs as Vice President and chairman of the National Security Council, with CIA Director Allen Dulles)

– oil mogul Howard L. Hunt, who was also a big LBJ donor and gambled at Ruby’s Carousel Club. Hunt was associated with [Abraham] Zapruder, the JFK assassination film maker’s business partner, who sold the film to LIFE magazine.

– John McCloy, who was Nelson Rockefeller’s personal assistant. Rockefeller was a CIA and FBI controller.

– Mr. Brown, of Kellogg, Brown, and Root, which later became a part of Halliburton, an oil pipeline company

– and other Dallas Petroleum Club oil men

After the meeting, Madeleine Brown said that LBJ was red-faced and told her, on the way to the car, that the Kennedys would not embarrass him anymore “after tomorrow”.

LBJ told her that was a fact, not a promise.

After the assassination, Madeleine Brown asked LBJ if he had killed Kennedy. He got mad and said that it was “those Texas oil boys!”.

How would he have known that?

In 2007, E. Howard Hunt of the CIA admitted to helping to organize the Kennedy assassination, on video. It’s on YouTube.

Hunt lists other CIA men, including Frank Sturgis and David Morales, as being involved in killing Kennedy. Hunt lists LBJ as working with this group of CIA men to kill Kennedy.

Sturgis was reported in court testimony as telling CIA asset Marita Lopez, who worked with Sturgis on attempts to kill Castro, that he had helped kill Kennedy.

Lopez travelled to Dallas with Sturgis and others in two cars the day before the Kennedy assassination, as a decoy. She testified in court that Sturgis received an envelope full of money from E. Howard Hunt in a hotel room in Dallas, and that the Sturgis group had rifles with scopes, in the second car.

Sturgis later tried to get Lopez to retract her testimony, using force. (Lopez had flown back to Miami the day before the JFK assassination. Sturgis later told her the trip was to kill Kennedy.)

David Morales of the CIA told his lawyer that he had helped kill JFK and Bobby Kennedy.

Hunt and Sturgis had previously worked together on CIA attempts to kill Castro. The Chicago mob helped. Johnny Roselli, the Chicago mob’s man in Las Vegas, testified before the House Select Committee on Assassinations, in 1977, that the mob and the CIA had worked together on attempts to kill Castro.

Chicago mobster James Files said that he shot Kennedy in the head from the Grassy Knoll. A cartridge shell was found there. Files says that he put his rifle under his coat and walked away, right through the policemen who were rushing towards the sound of the shot from the Grassy Knoll.

Files says that Oswald showed him around Dealey Plaza, but that it was his boss, Chicago mob hit man Chuck Nicoletti, that shot Kennedy from behind, and not from the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository where Oswald worked.

Oswald took his gun to work that day. He left many fingerprints on the cardboard boxes in the 6th floor snipers nest, there. Three cartridge shells were found there. But, also found there was a thumbprint of Mac Wallace, LBJ’s personal hit man.

Kennedy had threatened to get rid of the Rockefeller-Rothschild owned Federal Reserve Bank.

He stopped the Oil Tax Allowance, a big tax break for oil producers, that was supported by Clint Murchison Sr.

Kennedy had threatened to destroy the Bush-Rockefeller created and controlled CIA.

He refused to escalate the war in Vietnam in the big way that LBJ did.

Kennedy refused to back up the CIA’s Bay of Pigs invasion with the U.S. military.

U.S. Attorney General Bobby Kennedy was set to indict LBJ on charges of Senate corruption.

The Bush-Rockefeller CIA assassinated Kennedy, and the FBI covered it up. The Texas oil moguls of the Dallas Petroleum Club that coordinated the coup included CIA man George Bush. They were led by Clint Murchison Sr, who was close to LBJ, J. Edgar Hoover, Richard Nixon, and mob bosses Sam Giancana and Carlos Marcello.

The real answer to who took over the U.S. government that day, in 1963, is:  the U.S. bankers and industrialists who had supported Hitler before and during World War II, and who had once plotted to remove FDR in a coup. This group included Prescott Bush, Averell Harriman, and the Rockefellers. They created and ran the CIA. Allen Dulles, Director of the CIA, was their man.

Readers … if anyone is reading … you be the judge of whether all this is true or if it’s just Fourth Stage era “fake news” acquired on the Internet.

Does all this deserve to be investigated? Feel free to leave a comment.

    Awesome this! Yes, it deserves to be investigated.

  2. CS-Cart says:

    How would you describe your achievements during your studies?

    • Steven Yates says:

      I am not sure as to the point or the relevance of the question, but–

      Three articles in refereed journals of my field, two more items forthcoming … done while teaching introductory level philosophy courses and also working off campus (also penning occasional articles and reviews for a city newspaper). I would describe all this as having established my reputation in my department as a solidly competent writer and the “doctoral candidate most likely to succeed.” Does this help?
