"What my cabinet shows is that I am not afraid to
surround myself with strong and competent people...a good executive is
one that understands how to recruit people and how to delegate
authority and responsibility."-GW Bush 1/2/2001
As promised GW Bush has recruited competent and experienced
advisors. Despite their seeming diversity however they have a common
denominator. The America they reflect is the oil, pharmaceutical,
armament, Wall Street and eugenics interests long associated with
the Bush family.
Seventy years ago a similar configuration of oil, pharmaceutical,
chemical, military supply and eugenics interests were organized by
Wall Street into IG Farben/Standard Oil-Hitler's industrial
powerhouse. To grasp the real significance of what GW Bush's cabinet
has been brought together to accomplish it is essential to understand
the history of IG Farben, its relationship with American corporations
and how together they applied modern technology to the task of
eugenics or scientific racism.
According to former US Justice Dept. Nazi War Crimes prosecutor
John Loftus-who is today the director of the Florida Holocaust
Museum-"The Bush family fortune came from the Third
Reich,"-Sarasota Herald-Tribune 11/11/2000 (Click
Along with the Rockefellers (Standard Oil, Chase Manhattan
Bank), Mellons (Gulf Oil, Alcoa Aluminum), DuPonts (DuPont Chemicals),
General Motors and Henry Ford, banks and shipping companies
operated by the Bush family were crucial players in setting up the
industrial power behind the Third Reich. These companies poured
hundreds of millions of dollars into IG Farben and provided it with
technology for tactically-essential synthetic materials-while
withholding the same materials and patents from the US government.
The Rockefeller family, long aligned with the Bushes, owned
Standard Oil. Through a stock transfer they became half owners of
Germany's IG Farben with Farben likewise owning almost half of
Standard Oil. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, IG Farben
built and operated more than 40 concentration camps in Nazi-occupied
Europe, including Auschwitz.
At their slave labor/factory/death camps chemicals, weapons, drugs,
synthetic fuels and other materials vital to the Nazi war effort were
manufactured. In addition, eugenicists like Dr. Josef Mengele used the
human subjects in the camps for experiments the data from which are
today the basis for many drugs marketed by the pharmaceutical
industry-not too surprising in light of the fact that more Americans
die from prescription drugs than from any other single cause.
At the end of WWII the allies split up IG Farben into companies
that are now the top pharmaceutical concerns on earth among them
Bayer, Hoescht, BASF, the Agfa-Gevaert Group and Cassella AG. Many of
Wall Streets favorite pharmaceutical/chemical companies behind the
proliferation of genetically-altered foods, transgenic animals, human
cloning, dangerous psychiatric drugs, deadly vaccines and
pesticides-such as Aventis-are subsidiaries of these same companies.
War provides the necessary medium in which this witches brew of
oil, eugenics, pharmaceuticals, munitions and Wall Street investing
can reach maximum growth. Likewise, war is also the essential frame of
reference for the newly formed GW Bush administration.
The high-profile minorities who are working as Bush advisors have
been hand-picked, funded and carefully cultivated by right wing think
tanks and conservative foundations with a white supremacist philosophy
in order to provide cover for their anti-poor, anti-minority eugenics
For those who scoff at the validity of comparing the Bush
administration to the Nazis and IG Farben please note the following.
I'm not suggesting that GW Bush is a literal Nazi nor am I implying
that everyone who is an oil or pharmaceutical company executive
automatically deserves to be linked to IG Farben. That the Bush wealth
and prominence in American politics is derived from Prescott Bush and
George Herbert Walker's support of Hitler is a historical fact. If the
connection ended in 1945 with the destruction of Nazi Germany that
might have been the end of it-it didn't end there however.
Not only has the eugenics agenda continued but many of the top
Nazis who were advancing it during WWII were brought to the US after
the war and installed in academia, the media, government research
institutions and the CIA-by the same American officials who worked
with the Bush family to build up Nazi Germany in the first place.
Their ideas formed the basis for much of the agenda promoted by this
nation's most influential right-wing think tanks-the same think tanks
that are the sponsors of GW Bush and virtually every one of his
Why is it significant that many of Bush's staff and cabinet
appointees are former pharmaceutical company executives as was GW's
father, former President George Bush? These corporations are
voraciously patenting the earth's life forms-its plants, bacteria,
viruses, animals and even human genetic lineages. Reproduction of
plants, animals and humans may eventually be totally controlled by
these corporations, genetically-altered, recombined into chimeric life
forms and exploited for profit.
The Human Genome Project, as it admits on the very first page of
its website (Click
Here), is derived from the eugenics movement in the US and Nazi
Germany during the first half of the 20th century. The Eugenics
Records Office at Cold Springs Harbor NY-where American eugenics
started-was built by the Harriman family-the Bushes' Wall Street
business partners in funding Hitler. This is the new frontier of
colonialism in the 21st century-the total domination and exploitation
of the earth and everything on it-the New World Order both former
President Bush and Adolf Hitler so frequently called for.
While my writings focus on the Republican aspect of this agenda
there is no question that many Democrats are participants and that
none of these things could be accomplished without the full
"bipartisan support" we hear about each and every day.
Some of the men and women who do the thinking for GW Bush:
-Vice President, Dick Cheney, arguably the real President-elect,
was one of papa Bush's top advisors. His company, Haliburton, is one
of the nation's largest recipients of government contracts, supplying
military equipment, oil services and infrastructure. Cheney epitomizes
corporate-welfare and like most of Bush's appointees is a
multi-millionaire who will receive huge financial benefits from the
administrations' policies and any wars it manages to get the US into.
-Secretary of Labor Linda Chavez-who is outspokenly anti-union-was
a research fellow at the CIA's Manhattan Institute during 1993
and 1994 and has received almost $200,000 in grants from the John M.
Olin Foundation, a notorious right-wing fund derived from a family
business in munitions and chemicals with roots in white supremacy.
Despite her Hispanic surname she is an outspoken advocate for the
English First Movement. Chavez is president of the Center for Equal
Opportunity, based in Washington, D.C. an organization dedicated to
eliminating affirmative action. On their website Chavez quotes Charles
Murray, author of The Bell Curve, a classic of modern racial eugenics
which has become the "bible" for the anti-welfare
anti-affirmative action movement.
-Secretary of Health and Human Services, Wisconsin Gov. Tommy G.
Thompson, is known for his controversial welfare reforms-based in
large part on two books by Charles Murray, Losing Ground and The Bell
Curve. Murray was a consultant for the Wisconsin welfare reform
program. Thompson's protege, Jason Turner, was later brought to NYC
where he has run Mayor Giuliani's characteristically brutal welfare
elimination program. Turner became notorious for quoting the motto on
the gates over Auschwitz- "Arbeit Macht Frei-work shall
make you free". He is frequently a guest with Charles
Murray in panel discussions at the CIA's Manhattan Institute and other
Bush-connected think tanks. Murray wrote the Bell Curve while a fellow
at the Manhattan Institute where his pseudo-scientific research on the
genetic inferiority of African Americans was primarily financed by the
Pioneer Fund. Since 1937 the Pioneer Fund has promoted eugenics and
the ideology of white racial superiority.
-Secretary of Energy, Spencer Abraham, who served as Vice President
Dan Quayle's chief of staff, spent years trying to abolish the very
agency he will now head. His legislative positions include being
against higher fuel efficiency standards for cars, being against
government regulations for industry and support for opening up
national parklands to oil drilling. He is a recipient of oil company
contributions totaling more than $221,000 according to the NY Times.
The American Petroleum Institute has said it looks forward to working
with Abraham. Abraham helped found the conservative law group the
Federalist Society which specializes in eliminating social programs,
affirmative action, welfare and bilingual education. The society is
funded by the John M. Olin Foundation, the Sarah Scaife Foundation,
the Bradley Foundation, and the Lilly Endowment-America's leading far
right think tanks. Among its most prominent members are Supreme Court
Justices Scalia and Thomas whose questionable election ruling gave
Bush his illegitimate Presidency. Spokespersons for the Federalist
Society include Bell Curve author Charles Murray, Manhattan Institute
fellow Abigail Thernstrom, and Dinesh d'Souza of the American
-Secretary of Education, Rod Paige, the latest African American
Bush appointee, is a conservative public schools administrator in
Texas and decades-long crony of the Bush family who supports vouchers,
tying teacher pay directly to test scores and school privatization-all
of which will negatively impact African American students by
destroying public education.
-Secretary of Defense, Donald H. Rumsfeld was Secretary of Defense
under President Ford. Rumsfeld like Powell, Cheney, Rice and numerous
other Bush administration officials is a salesman for the Star Wars
Missile Defense Shield. He served four terms in the US Congress where
he voted against Medicare, anti-poverty programs like Headstart, food
stamps and various healthcare proposals. Rumsfeld, who formerly headed
Searle Pharmaceuticals, is part of the drug company axis within the
Bush administration. Former President Bush was director of Eli Lilly,
OMB head Mitchell E. Daniels was also senior executive of Eli Lilly
and AG John Ashcroft is known as a lobbyist for pharmaceutical
companies. Dr. Gail R. Wilensky-one of numerous John M. Olin grant
recipients attached to Bush-is the principal author of GW's Medicare
plan. Wilensky serves on the boards of eight health care companies in
which she owns more than $12 million in stock.
-Secretary of State, Colin Powell is a lifelong operative of the
CIA/military-industrial complex. While working for the Pentagon he
earned his present stature by helping cover up the Mai Lai massacre,
the contra/arms-cocaine deal and Gulf War Syndrome. Powell's
reputation as a hero derives from presiding over a war in which US
troops were used as guinea pigs for drug companies' experimental
vaccines so that they could "safely" fight George Bush's
friend Sadamn Hussein-who had been supplied with chemical and
biological weapons by the Bush administration. Unlike most of GW's
appointees of color, Powell proudly admits he owes his career to
affirmative action yet willingly joins an administration that
considers ending affirmative action a top priority.
-Secretary of the Treasury, Paul H. O'Neill is the chairman of
Alcoa Aluminum, one of the world's worst polluters and a leading
corporate supporter of Nazi Germany and eugenics. O'Neill owns 1.6
million shares of Alcoa, worth more than $50 million. During WWII
Alcoa negotiated a deal with the Nazis and IG Farben to supply
Germany's war machine rather than the US military with aluminum.
"If America loses this war," said then Secretary of the
Interior Harold Ickes on June 26, 1941, "it can thank the
Aluminum Corporation of America [ALCOA]." Alcoa produces hundreds
of millions of tons of fluoride. This highly toxic waste byproduct of
aluminum has been linked in thousands of medical studies to cancer and
other degenerative diseases. In the 1950's Alcoa arranged to have it
added to our nation's drinking water rather than disposed of as toxic
waste. During WWII in IG Farben's slave labor camps Nazis scientists
discovered that by adding fluoride to the drinking water they could
make prisoners more submissive to authority. .O'Neill is a fellow at
the RAND Corporation and American Enterprise Institute, two more
extreme right-wing think tanks.
-Attorney General John Ashcroft is a self-styled moral crusader as
strongly anti-abortion as he is enthusiastic about the death penalty.
Last year, Ashcroft received an honorary degree from Bob Jones
University. He is closely aligned with the Christian Coalition, Pat
Robertson and Southern heritage groups which admire the Confederacy
and defend the institution of slavery as practiced in the South. He is
known among lobbyists as an advocate for drug companies and the
automotive industry and for preventing consumers from suing HMO's. The
furor over Ashcroft's anti-abortion views is being played out exactly
as planned by Team Bush. Not only will the Bush administration never
make abortions illegal, if anything the eugenics agenda that underlies
the Bush family history guarantees that abortion, sterilization and
other technologies intended to limit population-including war,
chemical exposure, pesticide use in urban areas, genetically-altered
foods and vaccines-will proceed at an unprecedented level. The Bush
gang are delighted to see Democrats, women's rights advocates and the
left focusing on Ashcroft while virtually ignoring the other Bush
-Secretary of Commerce Donald L. Evans is an insider in the Texas
"oil mafia" and is GW's closest friend and confidant. He's
also friend, confidant and contributor to one of America's biggest
recipients of government contacts, Halliburton's Dick Cheney.
-Office of Management and Budget Director Mitchell E. Daniels Jr.,
was senior executive of the Eli Lilly drug company and was previously
the president of the arch-conservative Hudson Institute. Daniels, who
advocates strict enforcement of laws against casual drug users, was
busted for drugs in 1970.
