The Clinton-Bush Hurricane Fund Public Relations Scam

Bill "Bubba" Clinton is one sick human specimen. "Our government failed those people [in New Orleans and the Katrina-stricken Gulf states] in the beginning, and I take it now there is no dispute about it," Clinton told CNN. "One hundred percent of the people recognize that -- that it was a failure." Government, as epitomized by Clinton, and especially his Katrina Fund cohort, Bush Senior, is designed to fail people, or people who are not members of the plutocracy. The Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund is simply another public relations scam, a shell game designed to trick people into putting faith in government in the wake of Katrina. In fact, the federal government has its mission statement and it is immutable: it is designed to service a rich and powerful minority, a vampire class of sociopaths, at the expense of everybody else. It seems we have forgotten Waco (babies burned to death) and the medieval siege of Iraq (where a half million babies died from disease and malnutrition), horrific events plotted and planned by the government. Criminal minds such as Clinton and Bush are not interested in the death of the impoverished in New Orleans, initially considered of so little worth they were not evacuated in advance of the storm. The Fund is a PR stunt pure and simple.

Clinton wants a federal whitewash commission for New Orleans. "As with the 9/11 commission charged with looking at the events leading up to and after the September 11, 2001 attacks, Clinton suggested a bipartisan Katrina commission be formed. It would investigate what went wrong and determine 'what is the best structure and what are the best personnel decisions' to make in emergency management, he said," according to CNN. Such a commission would find a few handy scapegoats and endorse grandiose plans to prevent another New Orleans (more federal money doled out to Halliburton and other no bid corporations). "The elder Bush echoed Clinton's sentiment, telling CNN's Larry King that he is 'not satisfied' with the handling of the hurricane's aftermath." It's like that scene in the Wizard of Oz when the man behind the curtain booms through the Great and Mighty Oz to pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. Bubba and Bush are directly responsible for what happened in New Orleans -- neglecting infrastructure far and wide for decade after decade as the globalist elite and rich bankers and multinational corporations (the real constituency) picked the American people clean, a brazen act of pillaging and unimaginable grand larceny that only increased momentum after Bush Junior assumed office (through Supreme Court appointment and vote fraud).

"It has not happened yet, but there remains a real possibility that Katrina will swamp the Bush administration and leave it wrecked beyond repair," notes the BBC. "On both sides of the political divide, there is an acceptance of the fact that if Mr Bush is seen to have failed personally to provide leadership, then nothing can be salvaged from his second term in office -- he will be the lamest of lame ducks." Of course, this is less than useless and even comical -- blame will be shifted elsewhere, or foisted on a faceless federal government (how many bureaucrats are in prison or even lost their jobs after the "intelligence failures" we are told led to nine eleven?), and Bush, as a "lame duck," will continue in his capacity as a figure head, a disgusting rallying pivot, a cardboard cut-out for the ruling elite. Congress, infected with right-wingers and outright fascists, will not impeach Bush, although they may mildly rebuke him -- and then return to the "business of America," servicing the ruling elite and its plutocratic core.

If you think Democrats will change things -- think again: Clinton is evidence enough there is no difference between the illusory shades of the political spectrum. Nothing short of a political hurricane -- once upon a time called revolution, now a treasonous word -- will change the system. A massive and purgative storm surge needs to sweep through Congress and the White House and wash away the globalists and plutocrats who have but one purpose (and certainly no purpose or dedication to the American people): to service the neoliberal bankers and CEOs of criminal transnational corporations engaged in an end-run to steal as much real estate and plunder as many natural resoruces as possible and, in the process, reduce those they claim to care so much about to pitiful zeks (not only the poor of America, but the masses of poor around the world, victims of a rapacious globalism, most of them earning less than two dollars a day) and thus reduce the planet to a dismal and harrowing gulag
