Profile of an Occult Lodge Puppet
"For three more years America is going to be led by, not just a lame
duck President, but a totally discredited President. In a poll taken
yesterday 90% percent of those asked said they believed top Bush
administration officials are guilty of either illegal or unethical
behavior in the CIA leak case.
So where does that leave an un-indicted George W. Bush? There really
are only two explanations and neither reflect well on him. First he
can claim his closest aides conspired behind his back while he was
otherwise occupied. I call that the "Exxon Valdez Defense," -- the
captain was not at the helm when a careless crewman ran the ship of
state aground. Unfortunately for Captain Bush that defense did not
wash for the real captain of the ill-fated tanker. Because, you see,
the captain is always responsible.
The other explanation is worse; that the President of the United
States knew what was going on, maybe even participated in it.
Either way, Bush is finished as a force in American politics. How he
ever got to become President in the first place -- not once, but
twice -- will remain a subject social scientists will study and
debate for decades to come. Because there was plenty of evidence
that George W. Bush was a made man. He had accomplished nothing in
his adult life on his own. Not one. (Click Here for more on that.)
Of course, for those of us who have covered the Bush family for
years, it's no mystery at all. The best way to think of George W.
Bush is as a "beard" for others. At every step in his "career"
individuals of wealth and/or power groomed and then used him as
their front man.
These benefactors had learned long ago that there was more money and
more power to be had in the shadows than the limelight. All they
needed was the right person to front for them, someone with a name,
a smile, a confident swagger. Vision, dreams, hopes and ethics were
not only unnecessary but liabilities in a beard. All they needed was
a person they can program, wind up and send out into the public
spotlight and deliver for them.
That's George W. Bush. He fit the bill to a "T." Texas oil men and
companies with international agendas and voracious appetites for
government contracts had found their perfect front man in GWB a
kind of Forrest Gump from the Dark Side. A man ignorant, proud of
it, and willing to take direction from those he considered friends.
They began by nurturing George's pathetic efforts to become a high-
rolling Texas oil man. Though his companies failed, they made sure
he never did. Then they were able to further his ascendancy by
indulging his playful side, buying him his own baseball team a
baseball team. That raised George's public profile to just a notch
below their ultimate goal, public office.
Fully groomed and programmed they finally steered George towards the
goal. And it worked, probably beyond their wildest expectations. As
Governor of Texas their beard kept state regulators out of their
hair on dollar and cents issues critical to the oil drilling and
processing industries, like air quality. That alone would have been
sufficient payoff for their years of cleaning up George's business
Bagging the US Presidency was an unexpected super-bonus. Still, they
knew it was a development ripe with as much danger as opportunity.
After all, they knew the real George W. Bush. There was no way they
could send that hayseed off to the Big Show unattended. Dick Cheney
and Karl Rove were tasked with keeping their idiot prince both on
message and a short leash. God forbid he should ever make a speech,
take a position or make a decision on his own!
All went very well for the first four years. From day one, their boy
delivered, delivered and delivered again. He was a gift that just
$1.6 trillion in tax cuts, the bulk of which went to people like
environmental laws watered down;
expanded logging allowed in national forests;
a push to open protected Alaska wilderness to oil and gas drilling;
Iraqi oil fields suddenly within reach;
plenty of cheap labor flooding across our southern border.
And just as it looked as if he was on the way to fulfilling another
assignment, the elimination of the estate tax, his beard fell off.
It was the thing they had always feared most the real George W.
Bush went public. There it was, for the whole world to see a
chuckling, twitching, dope of man standing in front of the America
people, unleashed and unscripted. Worse yet, he was making his own
decisions. He chose his friend and admirer, Harriet Miers, for the
Supreme Court of the United States of America. ("Harriet who," his
What went wrong? Where were his handlers?
Busy. They dropped Gorege's leash when handed subpoenas. Junior was
unleashed and home alone.
It's a moment new to America, a leader who himself needs to be led,
now unled. And the world watching. It's as if the police had come
and dragged Edgar Bergin off stage in the middle a show, leaving
Charlie McCarthy, wide-eyed, mouth agape and slumped alone on his
So, what now?"
