Bush Death List
Subject: You've heard of Clinton's 'Dead';
Here's a partial list of Bush 'Dead'...
A Roster of the Dead
is a list of bodies, a roster of the dead, who might have been called
Witnesses had they not met their untimely ends. Some of the names on
this list will give you pause. Some are rumor. Some you may find incredible,
and some frightening. Do your own research http://www.google.com. You
will draw your own conclusions.
The above paragraph began the last edition of the Bush Body Count. In
previous editions, there were no special criteria for adding bodies
- only that they could be related to the Bush family in some way, and
be dead. In fact, the original Bush Body Count started as a parody of
the so-called Clinton Death List.
Times have changed. The Bush Body Count is no longer a parody, and many
of the names have been removed. This edition examines the scandals and
misdeeds of the Bush family generations, and lists the corpses they
leave in their wake.
Mr. Adger, a Houston oil supply company executive and Bush family friend,
died in 1996 of unknown causes. Adger was the mysterious businessman
who approached General James Rose and asked him to help George W. Bush
avoid Vietnam by recommending him for a pilot position with the National
General James Rose
General Rose recommended George W. Bush for a pilot position with the
Texas National Guard. He died of unknown causes in 1993. He was immediately
buried and no autopsy was performed.
Lt. Colonel William Harris, Jr.
Lt. Col. William Harris was one of two commanding officers who could
not perform George W. Bush's annual evaluation covering the year from
May 1, 1972 to April 30, 1973. They stated in their filing that "Lt.
Bush has not been observed at this unit during the period of this report."
Fortunately for George W. Bush, Lt. Col. Harris is not here to verify
his 1973 statement. He's dead.
Lt. Colonel Jerry B. Killian
Lt. Col. Jerry B. Killian was another of George W. Bush's commanding
officers. He cannot testify in a court of law as to George W. Bush's
dereliction of his sworn duty. Lt. Col. Killian is dead.
James Downing Aalund
Mr. Aalund's name is the first on a long list of young Texans who died
in Vietnam. These young men did not have influential fathers to pull
the strings necessary to get them into the Texas Air National Guard.
If they had been so lucky, they would surely have fulfilled their responsibilities
to the ANG, if only out of gratitude that they did not have to die,
thousands of miles away in a strange land. They surely would not have
disappeared from duty for over a year, as did our fearless leader George
Found dead in his car, shot in the head. Mr. Baxter was vice chairman
of Enron Corp. when he resigned in May 2001. Enron has been hot copy
lately with the revelation that they were the largest campaign contributors
for George W. Bush. Was J. Clifford Baxter a potential witness to Bush
foreknowledge of their wrongdoings? His death was ruled a suicide.
Charles Dana Rice
He was the senior vice president and treasurer of El Paso Corp., an
energy corporation swept up in the recent energy scandal. Two months
after the "suicide" of Enron executive Clifford Baxter, in
the midst of questions about the accounting practices of El Paso Corp.,
Charles Rice was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head. His death
was ruled a suicide.
James Daniel Watkins
His body was found on December 1, 2001 in the Pike National Forest in
Colorado, a gunshot wound to the head. Mr. Watkins was a consultant
for Arthur Andersen, the accounting firm for Enron. He disappeared on
November 13 after he left work. He was described as a devoted family
man who always called home if he were going to be late. Officials initially
said that the death was suspicious, but have changed their tune and
have ruled his death a suicide.
Commerce Secretary Ron Brown
He died in a plane crash on April 3, 1996. Was Ron Brown the first Enron
body? In 1995 Enron officials accompanied Brown on a trade mission to
India, and to Russia in 1994. Speculation among right-wing whackos suggests
that our last duly-elected President, Bill Clinton, was somehow responsible
for his death, but we wonder: was Secretary Brown privy to information
that would conclusively link George W. Bush to Enron greed and corruption?
Charles Meissner, Assistant Commerce Secretary, also died in this crash.
He was the senior ice-president of Gulf Power, a subsidiary of Southern
Company, a cohort of Enron in the energy industry, and a major contributer
to the Bush agenda. According to reporter Gregory Palast http://GregPalast.com
and http://www.guardian.co.uk/enron/story/0,11337,643422,00.html , Horton
knew of the company's appalling accounting practices, and "...
had no doubt about its illegal campaign contributions to Florida politicans
- he'd made the payments himself. In April of 1989 Horton decided to
come clean with state officials, and reserved the company jet to go
confront company officials. Ten minutes after takeoff the jet exploded.
An internal FBI memo reported that on November 22 a reputed businessman
named George H. W. Bush reported hearsay that a certain Young Republican
had been talking of killing the President when he came to Houston. The
Young Republican was nowhere near Dallas on that date. According to
a 1988 story in The Nation, J. Edgar Hoover said in a memo that Mr.
George Bush of the CIA had been briefed on November 23rd, 1963 about
the reaction of anti-Castro Cuban exiles in Miami to the assassination
of President Kennedy. George H. W. Bush has denied this, although he
was in Texas and cannot account for his whereabouts at the time.
He sat on the Warren Commission, which concluded that President Kennedy
was slain by a lone assassin. Later, in 1971 and '72, Boggs said that
the Warren Report was false and that J. Edgar Hoover's FBI not only
helped cover up the JFK murder but blackmailed Congress with massive
wire-tapping and spying. He named Warren Commission staff member Arlen
Specter as a major cover-up artist. Congressman Boggs' plane disappeared
on a flight to Alaska in 1972. The press, the military, and the CIA
publicly proclaimed the plane could not be located. Investigators later
said that was a lie, that the plane had been found. On the plane were
Nick Begich, a very popular Democratic Congressman, and Don Jonz, an
aide to Mr. Boggs. All were killed.
George de Mohrenschildt
A rich Russian oilman, he was described with his wife as being the two
people friendliest to Oswald at the time of the assassination. De Mohrenschildt
was the man who moved Oswald to Dallas. In the late 1970's, shortly
before the first meeting of the House Select Committee on Assassinations,
de Mohrenschildt started seeing a new doctor in town. He quickly became
mentally unstable, at which time his wife convinced him to stop seeing
the doctor. They moved away and left a false forwarding address. On
the same day that the Committee tried to contact him about testifying,
he was found dead of a gunshot wound. In his personal address book was
the entry Bush, George H.W. (Poppy) and Zapata Petroleum Midland (the
oil company owned by George H.W. Bush).
Mrs. E. Howard Hunt
In December 1972, while George H. W. Bush was at the Republican National
Convention, a United Airlines flight carrying Mrs. Dorothy Hunt, CIA
operative and wife of Howard Hunt, (CIA operative and suspect in the
Kennedy assassination) crashed. Believed to be carrying $25,000 in "hush
money", she died in this crash.
George H.W. Bush
He was investigating Lawrence E. King, Jr., a very influential black
Republican who was also a friend of George H.W. Bush. King was director
of the Franklin Community Credit Union in Omaha, Nebraska, and was suspected
of embezzling $40 million . The Nebraska Senate questioned child prostitutes,
who accused King of running a child prostitution ring. One of these
children said that she saw George H.W. Bush at one of King's parties.
"Pronto", a newspaper in Barcelona, Spain, reported that the
scandal "appears to directly implicate politicos of the state of
Nebraska and Washington DC who are very close to the White House and
George Bush himself". On July 11, 1990, Gary Caradori was killed
along with his 6-year old son in the crash of his small plane, after
a mid-air explosion, the cause of which was never discovered. He had
told friends repeatedly in the weeks before his death that he was afraid
his plane would be sabotaged.
He was torn to bits by a car bomb on the streets of Washington DC just
before he was to testify against the Chilean dictator Pinochet. After
the bombing, CIA Director George H. W. Bush told the FBI that there
had been no Chilean involvement whatsoever. In 1991 the post-Pinochet
Chilean Supreme Court asked George H. W. Bush if he would submit to
questioning. BUSH REFUSED.
She was Letelier's assistant. She and her husband were riding in the
car with Letelier when the bomb exploded. Mr. Moffit survived. Ronni
Jack Delaney and Ted White
These young men were killed when pilot George H. W. Bush abandoned his
plane when it was hit by enemy fire. Much has been made of this story
- Bush propaganda would have us believe that he was a hero. An eyewitness
to the event tells us otherwise: Chester Mierzejewski, who was the turret
gunner in another plane, had an unobstructed view. He states that he
saw a "puff of smoke" come from Bush's plane and quickly dissipate.
He states that the plane was never on fire and that Bush never attempted
a water landing, which was standard procedure, and which would have
given Mr. Delaney and Mr. White a chance.
His web site, Liberalism Resurgent, was meticulously researched and
presented such a problem to the "real boss" of George Bush,
Richard Scaife, that he hired a private detective to look into Kangas'
past. Steve Kangas was found in a 39th-floor bathroom outside of Scaife's
offices at One Oxford Centre, in Pittsburgh, an apparent suicide. Mr.
Kangas, a very prolific writer, left no note. He had brought a fully-packed
suitcase of clothes with him to Pittsburgh. He bought a burglar alarm
shortly before he left for Pittsburgh. Why did he need a burglar alarm
if he was going to commit suicide? An avowed advocate of gun control,
he nevertheless bought a gun. What was he afraid of? Why did he go to
Pittsburgh? After his death, his computer was sold for $150 and its
hard drive wiped clean. Everything in his apartment was thrown away.
He was working on a book that tied together the scandals surrounding
the presidency of George H. W. Bush. He told his friends he was going
to "bring back" the head of the Octopus. Instead, his body
was found in a hotel in Martinsburg, West Virginia, on August 10, 1991,
an apparent suicide.
He was an accomplished conceptual artist who, while chatting on the
phone with a banker friend about the Bush savings and loan scandal,
started doodling a diagram and was inspired to create a complex series
of drawings and sketches that charted the details of the scandal. According
to the New York Times, "He was soon charting the complex matrices
of personal and professional relationships, conflict of interest, malfeasance
and fraud uncovered by investigations into the major financial and political
scandals of the day; to keep facts and sources straight, he created
a handwritten database that now includes around 12,000 3-by-5-inch cards."
On the evening of March 22, 2000, Mark Lombardi was found hanging in
his loft, an apparent suicide.
Mr. Hatfield was the author of Fortunate Son, an unauthorized biography
of George W. Bush. The book detailed Bush's cocaine use and cover up
of a cocaine arrest. He was found Wednesday, July 18, in a motel room,
an apparent suicide.
He was one of Prescott Bush's partners in business deals with Adolph
Hitler. He was devastated by the intense grilling he received from the
Senate about his dealings with Nazis, and while Prescott Bush skated
free, Farish collapsed and died on November 29, 1942.
He was U.S. Secretary of Defense, and become a problem for Prescott
Bush when he proposed racial integration of the Armed Forces. On March
28, 1949, he was forced out of office and flown on a military plane
to Jupiter Island in Florida. From there he was taken to Walter Reed
Army Hospital, where he was given insulin shock treatments. He was shielded
from all visitors except his estranged wife. From "George Bush,
the Unauthorized Biography":
On May 22, Forrestal's body was found, his bathrobe cord tied tightly
around his neck, after he had plunged from a sixteenth-story hospital
window. The chief psychiatrist called the death a suicide even before
any investigation was started. The results of the Army's inquest were
kept secret. Forrestal's diaries were published, 80 percent deleted,
after a year of direct government censorship and rewriting
She was executed in spite of enormous protest from the public, even
those religious groups that advocate the death penalty. Even Pat Robertson
thought that Karla was truly repentant and asked George W. Bush to spare
her life. He refused. Afterward, in a Talk Magazine interview, Bush
mocked the woman whose death warrant he had sanctioned, pursing his
lips and whimpering, "Please don't kill me!"
David Wayne Spence
David Wayne Spence was executed in Texas in 1997 in spite of compelling
evidence of his innocence. Two of the State's witnesses were co-defendants
who testified to avoid the death penalty, one of whom changed his story
three times in response to discrepancies. He later testified that D.A.
Simons encouraged him to alter his testimony. Two other witnesses for
the State were jailhouse snitches who recanted later and stated that
Simons offered them favors in exchange for testimony. All of this and
more was supposedly reviewed by Governor George W. Bush, but Bush refused
to commute his sentence, and did not order the Board of Pardons and
Paroles to review his request for clemency. It is a myth that a Texas
Governor can do nothing to stop executions; the Board will almost always
go with his recommendation. Bush washed his hands of the matter and
did nothing. Reasonable doubt is not a factor in Texas justice.
Gary Graham was convicted of the robbery and murder of a white man in
1981. Nearly two weeks after the crime, the state's prime witness could
not pick Gary's picture out of a photo line-up. Mr. Graham was arrested
with a 22 caliber pistol. The victim had been killed with a 22, but
the police firearms examiner determined that Mr. Graham's gun DID NOT
fire the fatal bullet. Four witnesses said Gary Graham was with them,
miles away from the convenience store, when the murder occured. All
four took and passed polygraph tests. George W. Bush, predictably, expressed
his faith in the Texas judicial system and allowed Mr. Graham to be
put to death. Mr. Graham maintained his innocence to the end.
