DESTINY AND POWER: The American Whitewash of George Herbert Walker Bush
By Roger Stone
John Meacham’s “biography” of our 41st President George H.W. Bush, “DESTINY AND POWER” comes in at a whopping 864 pages and a wrist snapping 3.4 pounds and it’s pure whitewash. It ignores inconvenient historical facts because it is an authorized biography. Meacham seems oblivious that the goofy, patrician manner and weird syntaxes that makes him look like a bumbler hide a man of steely ambition, ruthlessness, entitlement and duplicity.
Fortunately, my own book Jeb and the Bush Crime Family will be released Jan 26th and will expose what a tool of the power elite “Historian” Meachem is and there is a whole genre of books that are authorized profiles that stress the Bush Family “integrity ” and “honor. All are vehicles in which the Bush to cover up the truth about the House of Bush. Destiny and Power is one of those
Meacham ignores declassified Federal Documents showing Bush was in Dallas on November 22, 1963 staying steps from Dealey Plaza and lied to the FBI to create an alibi when he said for 30 years he “couldn’t remember where he was.” Not in Meacham’s book.
Meacham omits stone walling of the Iran-Contra Investigators on the trail of cocaine and arms smuggling he over saw a Vice President and chair of a Secret Task Force to illegally raise money for Nicguaran Rebels. Bush, on advice of Presidential Legal Counsel Boydon Grey creepy son of Eugenics Guru and funder Gordon Grey, refused to be questioned or turn over Documents. Not in Meacham’s book.
CIA Drug Smuggler and Pilot Barry Seal was murdered 3 days after threatening to expose Bush Sons Jeb and W. involvement with drug smuggling. Seal is gunned down with Bush 41 private phone number in his wallet. Not in Meacham’s book.
There is no mention of his racist support of eugenics, Prescott Bush financing the armament of Hitler or owning condoling interest in a steel mill in Germany that used skave labor from Auschwitz death camp. Again not in Meachem’s book.
The Bush even paid for a vanity biography of Prescott Bush “Duty, Honor Country” airbrushed his Nazi business dealings out of the picture. Author Mickey Herskowitz should be ashamed. The Feds seisong Prescott’s Bank for trading with the Nazi’s is not mentioned.
Meachen miss Poppy’s his obsessive quest for the Vice presidency, which he felt was his “birthright” that he could advance from. Bush made attempts to get on the ticket in 1968, 1972, 1974, 1976 and 1980.
Far from timid, he pulled the strings behind many of the dark events which have come to haunt us. Yet Bush maintained he was “out of the loop.” Never the one to take responsibility, never the one to accept blame, Bush CIA pal Felix Rodriquez ran the loop. Bush and CIA Director Bill Casey were the loop.
Destiny and Power, reads more like an autobiography than a biography unless biographies are limited to relating the facts only as approved of by the subject. In this massive self serving account, is a deliberate exclusion of many of duplicitous plots and lies. Like the one about his fighter plane catching on fire after being hit. Poppy dashes out and parachutes to safety. Fact show Bush bailed prematurely without warning his comrades who he left to die. The last part is historical fact. The true story is one of cowardice and self-preservation sold to people a war time bravery in endless 8 mm TV commercials of a smiling Poppy being scooped at see. Meacham buys the Bush spin he’s a hero.
When I realized that some of the story had come from Bush’s own personal diaries, I should have realized that Bush wouldn’t have written down anything that would make him look bad or could incriminate him. I wonder how, as a journalist and respected author, John Meacham produced such an obviously sanitized and unbalanced bio.
There is no mention of the family racist support of Eugenics or Planned Parenthood and Population Control for lessor races. One never gets the impression that so many politicians of the era had of George H W Bush: that he was weak, limp, soft spoken and timid.
That perception, perpetuated by Bush, could be the greatest con of recent times. Driven, or ganized and ruthless he pulled the strings behind many of the events which have come to haunt us. Yet Bush maintained he was “out of the loop.” Never the one to take responsibility as a good CIA man.
Destiny and Power is a masterwork. A brilliantly concocted script written only to praise Mr. Bush. Destiny and Power has garnered critical acclaim: a New York Times Best Seller and one of the top ten books of this year. The book is a fraud! Look who love it – Establishment elites Walter Issacson, and LBJ punch Doris Kearns Goodwin who was well acquitted with “Jumbo”. Mike Beschloss jumps on. These people hide the history of our country. Meachem hides it too in giving us the Bush family version of events while ignoring historical facts.
Meachem, like Bill O’Reilly misses much about the backstory of the Reagan Assassination and Bush ties to it- the second gunman , Bush’s secret effort to set Reagan up in Iran Contra and later have him declared non-compis mentis and seize power.
Old man Bush profiteering at Carlyle taking Saudi pay-offs and connections the Bin Ladens? Sanitized in Meacham’s book.
As old man Bush nears the end of his life, it seems not to be the end of the Bush dynasty. Jeb’s story is also one of privledge, shady connections, get-rich-quick schemes, using the Governorship to make millions taking post Governorship payoff’s from Wall Street for lucrative state actions. As Jeb Bush lays struggles and plan to steel the nomination from the convention, we must ask ourselves, “do we really want another Bush in office? Why aren’t these people in jail?
