On Bush’s Freudian Confession

Thursday, 19 May 2022 — Caitlin Johnson

Listen to a reading of this article:

Oh my God. It happened. I can’t believe it really happened.

During a speech in Dallas at Southern Methodist University’s George W Bush Presidential Center on Wednesday, the man himself, George W Bush, did the best thing ever. I am pretty sure it is the single best thing that has ever happened. I do not believe I am exaggerating when I say that.

We are at the point Edward Snowden described as “turnkey tyranny.”And on Wednesday night the key was turned a bit more dramatically. Ray McGovern explains.

By Ray McGovern

Gerry Condon, President of Veterans For Peace, was bloodied and “taken to ground,” on Wednesday night for trying to get food to people inside the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington. The activists inside, some of whom have lived in the embassy for weeks with permission from the Venezuelan government, are protecting the premises from protestors who support the self-declared president Juan Guaido.

Former U.S. President George W. Bush recently dedicated his Presidential Library in Dallas. The ceremony included speeches by President Obama, ex-President Bush, and every other living ex-president. But none of the speeches so much as mentioned to Iraq war — the undertaking that dominated George W. Bush’s presidency, and will define his historic legacy.

Google’s Spymasters Are Now Worried About Your Secrets By Robert Scheer

29 April 2013 — Truthdig

A recent article in The Wall Street Journal by Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt, “The Dark Side of the Digital Revolution,” makes for very scary reading. It is not so much because of what he and co-author Jared Cohen, the director of Google Ideas, have to say about how dictators can use new information technology to suppress dissent; we know those guys are evil.

Bush insider, who planned to tell all, killed in plane crash

Michael Connell told a close associate that he was afraid that George Bush and Dick Cheney would “throw [him] under the bus.”

Yahoo News (PRNewswire)

Michael Connell, the Bush IT expert who has been directly implicated in the rigging of George Bush’s 2000 and 2004 elections, was killed last night when his single engine plane crashed three miles short of the Akron airport. Velvet Revolution (’VR’), a non-profit that has been investigating Mr. Connell’s activities for the past two years, can now reveal that a person close to Mr. Connell has recently been discussing with a VR investigator how he can tell all about his work for George Bush. Mr. Connell told a close associate that he was afraid that George Bush and Dick Cheney would ‘throw [him] under the bus.’

Codepink: Want to throw your shoe at Bush?


18 December, 2008

CBEFACED-BD64-45A1-BAAD-80AC20808E9B.jpgWith one hurl of his shoes, Iraqi journalist Muntadar al-Zaidi brought the plight of the Iraqi people to the world’s attention. “This is for the widows and orphans and all those killed in Iraq!,” he shouted to Bush. We, too, feel anguish for the widows and orphans and all those killed in Iraq and we were moved by al-Zaidi’s passionate outcry.

That’s why we moved into action to defend him. On Tuesday we confronted the Iraqi Ambassador to the U.S. when he was at a public event. We also took a letter to the Iraqi Embassy, signed by groups around the country, calling for Al-Zaidi’s release.

And yesterday, CODEPINK gathered outside the White House and around the country to display shoes representing innocent Iraqis who have died since Bush’s illegal occupation of Iraq. In Washington DC we also had a shoe-throwing contest at a paper maché George Bush.(See FLICKR photos).

It’s outrageous that Al-Zaidi could get several years in prison for insulting George Bush, who is directly responsible for the deaths of 1.5 million Iraqis and 4,200 U.S. troops, and for the displacement of 5 million Iraqis. The one who should be in jail is Bush, not Muntadar al-Zaidi. Please join us in calling on the Iraqi government to release al-Zaidi without charges. We’re bringing the petition with your signature directly to the Iraqi Embassy. Please click here to sign it today.

Thank you to everyone who donated to send sewing machines and other needed items to help the women of Iraq rebuild their shattered lives. This week we are raising funds for Iraqi sisters who, because of the violence, have fled to during our own country’s hard times. You can still do so today by clicking here.

When you donate to CODEPINK, 25% will go toward sending shoes and other necessary supplies to those who truly need them–the widows and orphans of Iraq. Please help today.

Thank you for opening your hearts and your pocketbooks to those whose lives have been devastated by Bush’s unjust war.
In solidarity,

Audrey, Dana, Deidra, Desiree, Farida, Gael, Gayle, Jean, Jodie, Liz, Lori, Medea, Nancy, Paris, and Rae

bush-dog.jpgThe 50,000 Signatures Campaign for Muntather al-Zaidi

The campaign will proceed in demand of the release of the Iraqi Journalist, Muntather Al-Zaydi who hurled a pair of shoes at George Bush on 12/14/2008 in Baghdad in reaction to Bush’s immoral invasion of Iraq and the war-crimes committed by the occupying forces with the aid of local warlords. We hereby sign below to demand the immediate release of the Journalist Montadhar Al-Zaydi, without any constraints or conditions. We also hold Al-Maliki’s government and the Bush administration accountable and responsible for his life, dignity, and well-being…

VIDEO: Iraqi journalist throws two pairs of shoes at Bush


Comment from Layla Anwar, An Arab Woman Blues:

December 14, 2008

Bush bidding his last goodbyes in occupied Baghdad. Bush the president of the United Asses reaping the fruits of his labor and that of his American people from my Beloved.

Bush congratulated his stooges, the extra-large Zionist/Kurdish buffoon Talabani and the other Kurdish pimp Barazani. The puppet Tareq Al-Hashemi who was all smiles, and guess whom Bush kissed on the cheeks ? None other than the son of a bitch from Iran, A.Al-Hakeem, head of the Supreme Iranian Butt Council and head of the Badr death squads, whose hands are inundated with the blood of innocent Arab Iraqis.

The criminal psychopath, Bush last stop, was at a press conference with his other puppet, the sectarian dictator, from Iran, PM Nuri Al-Maliki.

And whilst Bush was pontificating from his ass, Muntather Al-Zaidi, a 28 years old journalist, a leftist, from the independent anti-occupation, anti-sectarian TV, Al-Baghdadia, stood up and threw not one shoe but TWO pair of shoes at Bush, calling him at the top of his voice YA KALB – YOU DOG.

Al Jazeera’s excellent news anchor the IRAQI Layla Al-Sheikhly was the only one to report the slur and insult to the President of the United Asses. His last visit indeed and a souvenir from a patriotic Iraqi. Subsequent news censored the insult – YA KALB-YOU DOG.

Let me tell you more about Muntather Al-Zaidi. Muntather was kidnapped, tortured and humiliated and when released he resumed his work as a journalist at the Baghdadia TV. He graduated from Baghdad University in Journalism and was active pre-2003 in the Iraqi Federation /Student Union and was/is known to be a vehement opposer to the dual occupation of my Beloved.

One of his colleagues confirmed that Muntather came to the press conference late, and his other colleagues from the same TV station had preceded him way before. This other colleague also confirmed that they had to stand for hours for stringent security checks before being allowed to enter the press hall.

Muntather as a dignified Iraqi, used the only weapon available to him – HIS SHOES.

He threw the first one with such dexterity, Bush ducked and within seconds he threw the second one and aimed right above that bastard’s head and landed smash into the American flag. I think that Muntather was hoping to aim the other shoe at Maliki, the puppet.

Needless to say about 5 men or more, dressed in civil clothes and some of them were American dogs, threw themselves on this HERO Muntather. Amidst the stupor and shouts, I could hear his screams while he was being kicked, his hair pulled, and his face scratched…

We all watched it and Mom and I burst into tears, tears of happiness and tears of grief.

Happiness because Muntather filled us with hope, hope that there are still brave heroes left in Iraq. Mom even called him the Salah El-Deen Al Ayubi /the new Saladin.

A historical moment in the Iraqi tragedy indeed and during Bush’s last visit !
A historical moment that will be recorded as the ultimate humiliation to any American president and to the “American Empire” hahahahahahaha.

We were also filled with grief and recited the Fateeha, because we knew that Muntather Al-Zaidi signed his own death warrant. This guy is finished.

Mom added that he will be tortured first, most probably with shoes before his execution.

Muntather Al-Zaidi was aware that the consequences of such an act will bring the wrath of the sectarian Shiites and zionists Kurdish puppets and that of the Americans on his head. But he risked it anyway…like a TRUE IRAQI HERO giving his occupier the ultimate humiliation next to the military defeat of America – because America has been DEFEATED in Iraq.

Yes, you dirty motherfuckers, NO VICTORY for you in IRAQ. No victory as long as people like Muntather exist…

I therefore urge all people of conscience, in particular [Reporters] without Borders, any syndicate or union of journalists anywhere in the world, to mobilize themselves for the release of Muntather before he gets executed.

I will leave you with an Iraqi song by Bassem Al-Ali singing for the Iraqis, all of the TRUE Iraqis, saying : You, Iraqi don’t bow your head down and don’t kneel. All the others will be defeated.

Yuri BARANCHIK: Why Does the US Elite Need Obama?

“Everyone knows that when a customer does not go to a brothel, girls – not beds are replaced. But replacing ‘girls’ should not affect our attitude to a brothel as an institution.”

The outcomes of November 4, 2008 US presidential elections gave ample proof that the not so-long period of ‘a single-polar world’ fuzzily outlined on the horizon due to the disappearance of a second superpower was over. So having realised that clearly, the US establishment made necessary conclusions.

Electing Obama as an ‘anti-Bush’ character is a sign that the US elite is aware of the fact that neither the US economy nor its political system are no longer efficient tools of continuing the domestic and external policies course that Washington pursued in the past 8 years.

The Anti-Empire Report #48: Read this or George W. Bush will be president the rest of your life by William Blum

Separation of oil and state

On several occasions I’ve been presented with the argument that contrary to widespread opinion in the anti-war movement and on the left, oil was not really a factor in the the United States invasion and occupation of Iraq. The argument’s key, perhaps sole, point is that the oil companies did not push for the war.

Responding to only this particular point: firstly, the executives of multinational corporations are not in the habit of making public statements concerning vital issues of American foreign policy, either for or against. And we don’t know what the oil company executives said in private to high Washington officials, although we do know that such executives have a lot more access to such officials than you or I, like at Cheney’s secret gatherings. More importantly, we have to distinguish between oil as a fuel and oil as a political weapon.

More on the Bush-Nazi connection By William Bowles

21 November 2003

Awhile back I touched on the connection between the Nazis and the Bush family fortune as part of the review of the book “The People as Enemy“. And I also referred extensively to it in “Frauds ‘R’ US” as well. Then a big piece was published in the New Hampshire Gazette a couple of weeks ago, after some new files were released after an FOIA application managed to squeeze it out of the bureaucracy. Well the guy who wrote the Gazette story, John Buchanan, mailed me the other day complaining that the mass media just don’t want to know about it. Here’s the press release he sent me, followed by my ‘Banking on Nazis II’.
