ANDREW KREIG: Poppy Bush's Seed And Bitter Harvest - Half Truths / History

The real story behind one of the most infamous figures in U.S. history  

By Andrew Kreig

The corporate-owned mainstream media have provided only partial truths regarding life of President George H.W. Bush, below left, whose death on Nov. 30 led to days of prominent coverage of his career and positive aspects of its lasting impact.

Our Justice Integrity Project excerpted prominently on these pages such accolades over the past week. Now it's time for the rest of the story, which draws heavily from the three chapters about the Bush family in our 2013 book Presidential Puppetry: Obama, Romney and Their Masters, which documented the secret ties of America's recent presidents with the power structure.

Excerpted below is the introduction to our chapter "George H.W. Bush: Poppy's Seed and Bitter Harvest," which draws on the late president's nickname "Poppy." 

Immediately before that in the book is a chapter about his father, "Prescott Bush: Roots of the Bushes," and his son, "George W. Bush: Shameless, Heartless and Selected — Not Elected."

The "Poppy" chapter will be excerpted in several parts here over coming days.

All of efforts at historical understanding are too important to delay or leave to hand-picked courtiers of the powerful whom the major media put before us. Several major national problems afflicting the United States have direct roots to little-known aspects of the Bush dynasty and the 41st president (1989-1993) in particular, as will be seen in the last segment of our multi-part series.

Globalist MSM frauds and CIA shills bemoan the passing of Bush while shamelessly fawning over his war criminal son

These problems include ongoing Middle Eastern wars, blight in our major cities caused by Iran-Contra smuggling, and that smuggling's contribution to instability in Central America fostering immigration from there to the United States.

Another result traceable to this president and this family is a notable advance in the growing culture of "elite deviance," whereby wealthy, well-connected insiders are spared the consequences of their actions, whether it is Bush family members who helped bring on the multi-billion-dollar Savings and Loan scandal of the 1980s or the Iran-Contra criminals whom the 41st president pardoned with the support of his Attorney General William P. Barr, below center, whom Trump has just nominated (doubtless in hope of the same kind of gentle treatment justified by high-sounding legal principles). 

We begin with an introduction from Presidential Puppetry to "Bush 41."

An appendix excerpts major recent stories about the death, drawn primarily from major mainstream print publications but interspersed with a several independent commentaries that largely support our themes in this series. This editor is amplifying these themes also on The Midnight Writer News Show, a radio broadcast from downstate Illinois and hosted by S.T. Patrick. The show scheduled for broadcast next week was recorded as Episode 105 on Dec. 9, 2018.

Such research comes from many sources, of course. We recognize as essential for this series those dedicated researchers, law enforcers and whistleblowers who have contributed to book-length portraylals of the late president. Among those recognized below from the independent sphere are:

Texas Tech professor Peter Brewton, a former Houston Post reporter who authored The Mafia, CIA and George Bush. Among others are the following independent-spirited authors:

Russ Baker (Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, The Powerful Forces That Put It In The White House, And What Their Influence Means For America;

Daniel Hopsicker, Barry and the Boys: The CIA, The Mob, and America's Secret History);

Robert Parry (Secrecy And Privilege: Rise of the Bush Dynasty from Watergate to Iraq;

Kevin Phillips; American Dynasty: Aristocracy, Fortune, and the Politics of Deceit in the House of Bush;

Barbara Honegger (October Surprise: Did the Reagan-Bush election campaign sabotage President Carter's attempts to free the American hostages in Iran?);

George H.W. Bush: Poppy's Seed and Bitter Harvest

In early 1976, Republican U.S. Senator Charles Mathias of Maryland announced on the Senate floor that he could not vote in good conscience for former Republican National Chairman George Herbert Walker Bush to become CIA director. The farsighted senator told his colleagues, “CIA power should be kept away from those who ascend to that post via partisan politics.”

Mathias (below) lost the debate, and Bush was confirmed.

Worse, the senator’s concerns about an ever-growing and increasingly politicized national security sector have all but disappeared from the Senate discussion in both parties. Indeed, the CIA’s headquarters has been renamed “The George Bush Center for Intelligence,” and is far from the vision President Truman had of an expert resource without partisan taint and without military capabilities uncontrolled by civilian authority.

From the Mathias comments, even the senator did not seem to suspect that Bush became a CIA asset in the agency’s earliest days in the 1940s, and was enriched beginning in 1954 by running a CIA-front company undertaking Gulf of Mexico oil drilling.

The pages ahead illuminate George H.W. Bush’s past in ways that many readers will find surprising. The scandals include Iran-Contra and a long-running Bush romantic affair. True, it is nearly impossible to know with certainty all the specific details of scandals, but official follow-ups were far less aggressive than warranted. This illustrates how a selective, politically biased justice system affects news coverage, elections and the rest of governance.

The nation’s 41st president has many attractive personal qualities, to be sure. Among them are an ethic of hard work, strong loyalty to family, and instinctive graciousness to most of those whom he encounters, high and low. I accept the view of trusted friends that he is considerate on a personal basis above the norm. His published letters from 1942 to 1998 reflect that quality.

Nonetheless, his admirable qualities do not foreclose a sense of entitlement, a willingness to exploit others outside the inner circle, and a potential for evil deeds in secret on occasion. Successful politicians are often attractive, both superficially and personally. 

And even those with good manners can sometimes exploit those outside the inner circle of family, friends, and the powerful.

We have already discussed in the first part of this analysis how the American geography dooms whoever controls the territory to being a global power, but there are a number of other outcomes that shape what that power will be like. The first and most critical is the impact of that geography on the American mindset.
