The Fall of the House of Bush

By Der Kosmonaut
21 February 2016
  The defeat of former Florida governor Jeb Bush, the son and brother of two former presidents, in yesterday's South Carolina primary election is a watershed moment in US politics. After the third consecutive crushing defeat in a state primary election, Jeb Bush has quit the race to become the next president of the United States As recently as six months ago it was the prevailing sentiment that Jeb Bush would easily win the Republican Party nomination for president in the November 2016 election. All of the stupid media outlets and pundits were convinced that the election would be a contest between two competing family dynasties, namely Bush vs. Clinton. However, Donald Trump has buried Jeb Bush and probably the future political fortunes of the Bush family.

  The Bush family is one of the most powerful and wealthiest sections of the American ruling class. Representing first Wall Street banking and financial sectors and later on petroleum, the Bush family were able to amass and wield significant political power. The patriarch of the Bush family was Prescott Bush who first made his fortune as a Wall Street bank executive before moving on to be elected to the United States Senate representing the state of Connecticut. It was his position as director of Union Bank Corporation which helped to finance Hitler's rise to power in Germany in the 1930s and Germany's efforts to conquer Europe in the Second World War. The wealth of the Bush family stained with the blood of tens of millions of lives in Europe. Blood on the hands would run in the veins of the family. Prescott was eventually elected to the United States Senate in 1952.
  His son George Herbert Walker Bush used the business connections of the father to get into the oil industry and moved to Texas. George HW Bush ran an unsuccessful campaign for the US Senate in 1964 on a platform opposing civil rights. He advanced the worn out Confederate argument of  "States Rights" which means that the individual US States have the "right" to discriminate against their own residents and citizens. "States Rights" is the bogus argument that apologists for the Confederacy advance to justify succession from the Union and to deny that the US Civil War had anything to do with the issue of slavery. This was the beginning of the Bush political racism which he and his sons would pursue with remarkable success in the following decades. The Bush family since George HW has been the sworn enemy of Black America. This is ironic considering that Prescott Bush actually supported Civil Rights and contributed money to help Black Americans. George HW Bush was appointed director of the CIA and though he only served for one year, it was enough for him to become a key part of the Military-Intelligence Complex aka The Secret State. After serving as Ronald Reagan's Vice President, Bush himself became president by engaging in guttersnipe racial politics. Though it has never been officially proven, it's common knowledge within the United States and throughout the Americas that H.W. Bush was personally involved in the drug trade. As the 41st president of the United States, H.W. Bush's first act of thuggery was the invasion of Panama in 1989. Long story short, Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega was on the CIA payroll and personal friend of H.W. Bush. Working on behalf of the CIA, Noriega shipped cocaine to the United States using the cover of the American owned Panama Canal. Noriega wanted a larger share of the profits. H.W. Bush ruled it out of hand. When Noriega threatened to tell the world that Bush and the CIA were the world's largest drug traffickers, that's when Bush illegally invaded Panama accusing Noriega of drug trafficking and smuggling.  The following year Bush would deliver his "New World Order Speech". on September 11 1990. That speech was the official declaration of global Totalitarian Capitalism under the tutelage of US capital.
  His eldest son George W. Bush entered into politics two years after he was booted out of the White House by Bill Clinton. W. Bush was elected governor of the state of Texas in 1994. As governor W. Bush distinguished himself as a sadistic executioner. He set the record for executing more convicted felons than any other politician in American history only to be outdone by her successor Rick Perry. Again blood letting and thuggery became a distinguished trait for a Bush. The rest of W. Bush's history is well known and there's no need to elaborate here.
  Jeb Bush, the younger brother entered politics by becoming governor of the state of Florida four years after his brother was elected in Texas. Like his father, Jeb would distinguish himself for his contemptuous and racist politics. Jeb Bush's policies were so blatantly vicious in their racism that Florida's long beleaguered Blacks referred to him as Jeb Crow. Jeb's worst crime was his role in organizing the theft of the 2000 Presidential Election on behalf of his brother George W. Though the international media largely focused on "hanging chads" in predominately white elderly voting districts, the theft was largely organized by disenfranchising Blacks from voting all across the state.

  It's very fitting and poetic justice that the House of Bush political dynasty was demolished by Donald Trump. It was Trump's obnoxious and ostentatious race baiting and xenophobic rants which did in Jeb Bush when it was the Bush family itself which started the practice of open racism and made it acceptable and successful in American politics. The Bush's paved the road for Trump and the rest of the Tea Party crackerjacks to push the Republican Party to the extreme far right. It was as disingenuous as it was ridiculous to observe how Jeb Bush attempted to play the moderate tolerant candidate in the election. However, he has no one else to blame except for himself, his brother and father for being racebaited out of the election. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. It's unlikely that another Bush will become the US president for the foreseeable future. Donald Trump has done the world a favor by preventing another Bush from occupying the White House.
