Act Three, Scene Two: Clinton Criticizes Bush (Again)
Stage show rolls on with Katrina backdrop in tow

The Houston Chronicle reported that former President Bill Clinton, asked by President Bush to help raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, offered harsh public criticism of the Bush administration's disaster-relief effort on Sunday, saying, "You can't have an emergency plan that works if it only affects middle-class people up."
Clinton's comments on the ABC News program This Week could prove awkward for the White House, given Bush's eagerness to involve his Democratic predecessor in a high-profile role to raise money for the hurricane's victims, the Chronicle reported.
So what was the Bush response to Clinton's "tirade"? "I still like him" Bush Snr responded.
The Bushes and the Clintons are currently the main players in a long running grand stage show. Listening to Clinton saying the Bushes have ignored the working classes of Louisiana is like listening to A Klan member denouncing the National Front for being racist.
What has Clinton ever done for the poorer people of America? He signed the welfare reform Personal Responsibility Act, which forced millions of working class people off welfare. Not so bad in itself, but when you consider that the jobs available to them were purely extremely low wage and slave labor work, it becomes a different matter. It was EARLY into Clinton's second term in office that the manufacturing jobs decline started. Manufacturing employment alone has fallen 3.3 million (19 percent) from its March 1998 peak under Clinton. This trend is simply continuing under Bush as more and more jobs are being exported.
Oh but Bill Clinton is now going to solve Global Poverty, he is the saviour of the poor man, some will cry. Newsmax has revealed that to simply attend Clinton's poverty conference you must fork out $15,000.
"This nonpartisan conference will bring together a diverse and select group of current and former heads of state, business leaders, noteworthy academicians, and key NGO representatives to participate in a series of dynamic interactive workshops," the conference web site claims. This is nothing more than an elite think tank cobbled together to discuss how they are possibly going to continue to pull in record profits under the nose a world obsessed with "solving" Global Poverty.
Another of Clinton's belly ups, the War on Drugs, was as phony a facade as the Surgeon General's warning on cigarette packages. Just as the US government continued to subsidize and protect the tobacco industry, so its covert operations spurred the traffic of heroin and cocaine into the United States. And, likewise, the policies on pharmaceuticals did more to defend the profits of industry than the health of consumers. Clinton's Government consistently put the interests of powerful industries before the well-being of ordinary people.
We have continually exposed how Clinton and the Bushes personally profited from massive drug smuggling operations through Mena, whilst Clinton was Governor of Arkansas. Alex Jones has interviewed multiple former CIA officers who were UNLOADING the cocaine. Bush Snr, then Vice President, met ELEVEN times with the Clintons in the year before Clinton announced. Teenagers Don Henry and Kevin Ives were murdered for accidentally witnessing a CIA cocaine smuggling operation in Mena. Bill Clinton aided in the cover up, as well as the money laundering. The Clinton-Bush relationship is a long and fruitful one.
The Clintons and the Bushes have been known to vacation together in more recent times. Earlier this year on CBS, Clinton revealed that he looks upon the Bushes as a surrogate family, and how Barbara Bush refers to him as "her son". Is this really a picture of two distinct and opposed political ideologies pitted against one another?
||Last year George W invited both Clintons as guests of honour and praised them to the hilt as he unveiled portraits of the two to be hung in the White House. Bush described him as having "...a great compassion for people in need... a man of enthusiasm and warmth". This after Bush's 2000 campaign was built around Clinton having no honor or dignity whilst in the White House.
Festivities continued last November when the entire Bush family journeyed to Little Rock for the opening of the Clinton Presidential Library. The praise from both President Bushes for Bill Clinton was sick bag overwhelming. "The William J. Clinton Presidential Library is a gift to the future by a man who always believed in the future and today we thank him for loving and serving America." Bush 43 was quoted.
After this Bush Snr and former President Bill Clinton joined forces for Tsunami Relief. They appeared at this year's Super Bowl and seemed to be having a blast together. They declared their friendship; we learn they talk on the phone often, play golf together and are just plain ‘pals.'
The Washington Times revealed that the current President even takes foreign policy advice from Clinton, along with his father, and lets them sit in on CIA briefings.
These two families are desperate attention loving power mad elitists and want to retain control of their respective political parties. They are using each other to ‘soften' their disapproval in the opposite party. We have two simultaneous dynasties - the Bushes and the Clintons. The Bushes are the hand of the Republican arm and the Clintons the hand of the Democratic arm. The body is of course controlled by one mind that outranks them all, the corporate fascist elite.
Just as the two major parties - with isolated examples of winning third party candidates - control who can win elections, these two family dynasties control who can be nominated inside their respected parties.
There has not been an occupant in the White House outside of the Bush or Clinton families since 1988. This will seemingly continue through to 2012 and beyond. How can this be in a constitutional republic?
Police State policies such as the Patriot Act, put in place by Bush have set the stage for the next Clinton who will be able to exploit them to extremes far beyond the Republicans would ever dream of being able to. Under another Clinton a horrific event like that at Waco under William J could become an everyday occurrence.
The policies stay the same, the faces alternate. The elite system of control has worked this way for centuries, when it's time for a change one dynasty takes a backseat and the other moves forward.
It is clear that Hillary Clinton's recent "move to the center" is a stage managed operation that signifies such a change of guard is underway. Hillary reached personal best in terms of national popularity this summer, with 52 percent of Americans now saying they view her favorably - and only 37 percent disagreeing. This has rocketed up from just a 39 percent favourability in March.
Whilst her husband has been hanging around with the Bushes, she has been living it up with the likes of Newt Gingrich, Bill Frist, John McCain and Rick Santorum. There is clearly a bipartisan move underway to shift public perception.
And so we return to the backdrop of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Clinton really has no right to criticize anyone over this disaster of criminal negligence that will lead to vast profit for corporate America. Not only is the Bush Administration directly responsible for the ferocity of the disaster, the blame also lies with Clinton. 10 years ago, the Clinton administration cut 98 flood control projects, including one in New Orleans, saying such efforts should be local projects, not national.
A $120 million hurricane project, approved and financed annually from 1965 was killed by the Clinton administration after being approved by the Army Corps of Engineers. It was designed to protect more than 140,000 West Bank residents east of the Harvey Canal.
Furthermore, Clinton's biggest "disaster", the OKC bombing proved just how responsive he was in a time of crisis. He took FOUR days to reach the scene, Bush only just beat him to it by taking three to reach New Orleans.
And now of course we have Clinton Teaming up with the Bushes again with Katrina as the backdrop. Once again this is an example of the two hands scratching one back.
|Clinton suggested a bipartisan Katrina commission be formed. It would investigate what went wrong and determine 'what is the best structure and what are the best personnel decisions' to make in emergency management, he said," according to CNN. "The elder Bush echoed Clinton's sentiment, telling CNN's Larry King that he is 'not satisfied' with the handling of the hurricane's aftermath."
So who will be surprised when this "commission" clears all those in power of any wrong doing or negligence, just like after 9/11? Of course it will also recommend Halliburton et al to be contracted to make sure nothing of this sort happens again - at least for another few months.
The Clinton-Bush name tag has so far raised $96 million for Katrina victims, whilst boosting the PR reputation of the two together beyond the stratosphere. The tag team serves to create the impression that the two hands together can lift more stones, whilst backstage, behind the scenes both hands are scratching the proverbial behind of the New World Order.
The Clintons and the Bushes are comparable to the Lucchese and Genovese families: they have their little spats, but at the end of the day they eat their gnocchi from the same table. The Democons and the Republicrats are the left and right hands of a single body. The mind of this body is intent on barehandedly tearing apart freedom and ripping to shreds the constitutional form of governance that was created to bring down this elitist rabble
