The Christmas the GOP So Richly Deserves

Let’s take a look at how the Repub’s woeful state of affairs came about. Back in 1999, the GOP was willing to do anything to regain control of the three branches of US government—executive, legislative and judicial. The Project for the New American Century had laid out its plan for world domination in 1997 and the time was right for putting the Bush dynasty back in power. The people who signed the PNAC mission statement were cronies of Big Daddy Bush. By fraud, the GOP put one of the cheating Bush brothers in the President’s chair. And George W. Bush, it is odd to realize now, was the least odious of the Bush sons and the most electable. Jeb Bush had helped a Cuban con man bilk Medicare out of millions of dollars. A business partner of Jeb’s, Camilo Padrera, was indicted for drug dealing, gunrunning and embezzlement. That is, until the Bush family claimed that Padrera was a CIA agent on a covert assignment. Neil Bush was on the Board of Directors of Silverado, the Savings and Loan company that had a $1 billion dollar collapse because of the gross negligence, schemes and abuses of its directors. Marvin Bush was a director at a security company called Stratesec from 1993 to 2000. Stratesec originally was named Securacom and was capitalized by the Kuwait-American Corporation. KuAm provided security at New York City's World Trade Center, Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., and United Airlines between 1995 and 2001 The two planes hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001 were United Airlines planes, and another took off from Dulles International Airport. Two crashed into the World Trade Center. The attack was planned by Saudis. Marvin Bush's last year on the board at Stratesec coincided with his first year on the board of HCC Insurance, formerly Houston Casualty Co., one of the insurance carriers for the World Trade Center. He left the HCC board in November 2002, Dubya’s failed businesses, shameful record with the National Guard, religious fanaticism and mental problems seem almost benign compared to his brothers’ chicanery and dubious connections. But the main point with the GOP was to get the Bush clan back in power. And by voter fraud and the cheating of Governor Jeb Bush in Florida, the GOP got what it wanted…twice. And then the most horrendous act of terrorism, the attack on the World Trade Center, catapulted the Bush family’s underachiever into worldwide prominence. And PNAC seized the moment to put into action its plan for world dominance. The Bush administration had the excuse it needed to begin its plan to overtake oil rich countries in the Middle East. The US attacked Iraq. The last five years of GOP rule have been a perfect metaphor for the consequences of hubris, arrogance, overreaching and totalitarianism. So there it is. The GOP got what it wanted, the White House is in shambles, the majority of people in the US can’t wait to get rid of the Bush clan once and for all, the world thinks the US is shitful and George W. Bush is drinking again. Merry Christmas.
