Stage show rolls on with Katrina backdrop in tow.
The Houston Chronicle reported that former President Bill Clinton,
asked by President Bush to help raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina,
offered harsh public criticism of the Bush administration's disaster-relief
effort on Sunday, saying, "You can't have an emergency plan that works
if it only affects middle-class people up."
Clinton's comments on the ABC News program This Week could prove awkward for
the White House, given Bush's eagerness to involve his Democratic predecessor
in a high-profile role to raise money for the hurricane's victims, the Chronicle
So what was the Bush response to Clinton's "tirade"?
still like him" Bush Snr responded.
The Bushes and the Clintons are currently the main players in a long
running grand stage show. Listening to Clinton saying the Bushes have ignored
the working classes of Louisiana is like listening to a Ku Klux Klan member
denouncing the British National Front for being racist.
What has Clinton ever done for the poorer people of America? He signed the
welfare reform Personal Responsibility Act, which forced millions of working
class people off welfare. Not so bad in itself, but when you consider that the
jobs available to them were purely extremely low wage and slave labor work,
it becomes a different matter. It was EARLY into Clinton's second term in office
that the manufacturing jobs decline started. Manufacturing employment alone
has fallen 3.3 million (19 percent) from its March 1998 peak under Clinton.
This trend is simply continuing under Bush as more and more jobs are being exported.
We are told Bill Clinton is now going to solve
Global Poverty, he is the savior of the poor man, some will cry.
has revealed that to simply attend Clinton's poverty conference
you must fork out $15,000.
"This nonpartisan conference will bring together a diverse and
select group of current and former heads of state, business leaders, noteworthy
academicians, and key NGO representatives to participate in a series of dynamic
interactive workshops," the conference web site claims. This is nothing
more than an elite think tank cobbled together to discuss how they are possibly
going to continue to pull in record profits under the nose a world obsessed
with "solving" Global Poverty.
Another of Clinton's belly ups, the War on Drugs, was as phony a facade
as the Surgeon General's warning on cigarette packages. Just as the
US government continued to subsidize and protect the tobacco industry, so its
covert operations spurred the traffic of heroin and cocaine into the United
States. And, likewise, the policies on pharmaceuticals did more to defend the
profits of industry than the health of consumers. Clinton's Government consistently
put the interests of powerful industries before the well-being of ordinary people.
We have continually exposed how Clinton and the Bushes personally profited
from massive drug smuggling operations
through Mena, whilst Clinton was Governor of Arkansas.
Alex Jones has interviewed multiple former CIA officers who were UNLOADING the
cocaine. Bush Snr, then Vice President, met ELEVEN times with the Clintons in
the year before Clinton announced his run for President. Teenagers Don Henry
and Kevin Ives were murdered for accidentally witnessing a CIA cocaine smuggling
operation in Mena. Bill Clinton aided in the cover up, as well as the money
laundering. The Clinton-Bush relationship is a long and fruitful one.
The Clintons and the Bushes have been known to vacation together in
more recent times. Earlier this year on CBS, Clinton revealed that he looks
upon the Bushes as a surrogate family, and how Barbara Bush refers
to him as "her son". Is this really a picture of two distinct
and opposed political ideologies pitted against one another?
Last year George W invited both Clintons as guests of honor and praised
them to the hilt as he unveiled portraits of the two to be hung
in the White House. Bush described him as having "...a great compassion
for people in need... a man of enthusiasm and warmth". This after Bush's
2000 campaign was built around Clinton having no honor or dignity whilst in
the White House.
Festivities continued last November when the entire
Bush family journeyed to Little Rock for the opening of the Clinton
Presidential Library. The praise from both President Bushes for Bill
Clinton was sick bag overwhelming. "The William J. Clinton Presidential
Library is a gift to the future by a man who always believed in the future and
today we thank him for loving and serving America." Bush 43 was quoted.
After this Bush Snr and former President Bill Clinton joined forces
for Tsunami Relief. They appeared at this year's Super Bowl and seemed to be
having a blast together. They declared their friendship; we learn they talk
on the phone often, play golf together and are just plain ‘pals.'
Times revealed that the current President even takes foreign policy
advice from Clinton, along with his father, and lets them sit in on CIA briefings.
These two families are desperate attention loving power mad elitists
and want to retain control of their respective political parties. They are using
each other to ‘soften' their disapproval in the opposite party. We have
two simultaneous dynasties - the Bushes and the Clintons. The Bushes
are the hand of the Republican arm and the Clintons the hand of the Democratic
arm. The body is of course controlled by one mind that outranks them all, the
corporate fascist elite.
Just as the two major parties - with isolated examples of winning third
party candidates - control who can win elections, these two family dynasties
control who can be nominated inside their respected parties.
There has not been an occupant in the White House outside of the Bush
or Clinton families since 1988. This will seemingly continue through to 2012
and beyond. How can this be in a constitutional republic?
Police State policies such as the Patriot Act, put in place by Bush have set
the stage for the next Clinton who will be able to exploit them to extremes
far beyond the Republicans would ever dream of being able to. Under another
Clinton a horrific event like that at Waco under William J could become an everyday
The policies stay the same, the faces alternate. The elite system of
control has worked this way for centuries, when it's time for a change one dynasty
takes a backseat and the other moves forward.
It is clear that Hillary Clinton's recent "move to the center"
is a stage managed operation that signifies such a change of guard is underway.
Hillary reached personal best in terms of national popularity this summer, with
52 percent of Americans now saying they view her favorably - and only 37 percent
disagreeing. This has rocketed up from just a 39 percent approval in March.
Whilst her husband has been hanging around with the Bushes, she has
been living it up with the likes of Newt Gingrich, Bill Frist, John McCain and
Rick Santorum. There is clearly a bipartisan move underway to shift public perception.
And so we return to the backdrop of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Clinton really has no right to criticize anyone over this disaster of criminal
negligence that will lead to vast profit for corporate America. Not only is
the Bush Administration directly responsible for the ferocity of the disaster,
the blame also lies with Clinton. Ten years ago, the Clinton administration
cut 98 flood
control projects, including one in New Orleans, saying such efforts should
be local projects, not national.
A $120 million hurricane project, approved and financed annually from 1965
was killed by the Clinton administration after being approved by the Army Corps
of Engineers. It was designed to protect more than 140,000 West Bank residents
east of the Harvey Canal.
Furthermore, Clinton's biggest "disaster", the OKC bombing proved
just how responsive he was in a time of crisis. He took FOUR days to reach the
scene, Bush only just beat him to it by taking three to reach New Orleans.
And now of course we have Clinton Teaming up with the Bushes again with Katrina
as the backdrop. Once again this is an example of the two hands scratching one
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. "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."
So who will be surprised when this "commission" clears all those
in power of any wrong doing or negligence, just like after 9/11? Of course it
will also recommend Halliburton et al to be contracted to make sure nothing
of this sort happens again - at least for another few months.
The Clinton-Bush name tag has so far raised $96 million for Katrina victims,
whilst boosting the PR reputation of the two together beyond the stratosphere.
The tag team serves to create the impression that the two hands together can
lift more stones, whilst backstage, behind the scenes both hands are scratching
the proverbial behind of the New World Order.
The Clintons and the Bushes are comparable to the Lucchese and Genovese
families: they have their little spats, but at the end of the day they eat their
gnocchi from the same table. The Democons and the Republicrats are the left
and right hands of a single body. The mind of this body is intent on bare handedly
tearing apart freedom and ripping to shreds the constitutional form of governance
that was created to bring down this elitist rabble.
