Anthology – Peoples’ Plan for Life, Now and Forever …
With respect to the Russ Baker book, I have a major problem extracting the significant events from it because there are so many. But let me take a stab by bringing out Mr. Baker’s salient point, presented in Chapter One. The thread of deception and dishonesty he presents is so long and tightly woven that I could easily end up quoting the entire book! On the strength of everything else offered in Anthology I urge you to read every word of it. I promise you, it is a fast, terribly disturbing read.
[page 5] “Building on the hidden past of George Bush the elder, I reveal how and why that most improbable national leader, George Bush the younger, was essentially cleaned up, reconditioned, and then ‘managed’ into becoming his father’s successor in the White House. Once this is understood, it becomes clear that George W., like his father, has both benefited from and faithfully served powerful interests that have remained largely hidden from the public eye and immune to public debate.
“There’s a paradox here: while serving forces that operate best in the shadows, the Bushes craved for themselves a place in the spotlight. To get what they wanted and to do what they felt they must, they had to live what amounts to double lives. Even as the Bushes gained fame and power, they managed to somehow avoid careful scrutiny of their actions and purposes. So adept were they at this game that they are almost never mentioned in their colleagues’ writings – not Senator Prescott Bush, and not United Nations representative and Republican National committee chairman George H. W. Bush. Although Richard Nixon makes bland reference to Poppy Bush’s vice presidency and presidency in his memoirs, he does not even bother to mention that Poppy served him in two top posts and held cabinet rank. It is almost as if this clan never existed until the moment it occupied the White House.”
