Petroleum is now so deeply entrenched in our economy, our politics, and our personal expectations that even modest efforts to phase it out are fought tooth and nail by the most powerful forces in the world: companies and governments that depend on oil revenues; the developing nations that see oil as the only means to industrial success; and a Western middle class that refuses to modify its energy dependent lifestyle.
But within thiry years, by even conservative estimates, we will have burned our way through most of the oil that is easily accessible. And well before then [like, NOW] the side effects of an oil based society – economic voliatility, geopolitical conflict, and the climate chhanging impact of hydrocarbon pollution – will render fossil fuels an all but unacceptable solution.
How will we break oour addiction to oil? And what will we use in its place to maintaon a global economy and political system that are entirely reliant on cheap, redily available energy?
The Bush Dynasty, the powerful forces that put it in the White House, and what their influence means for America.
Family of Secrets reveals that what most of us believe about the Bush Dynasty is only a fragment of a larger reality. Indeed, the same forces that put Bush-Cheney into power are still very much at work, exerting a stealthy dominance over the mechanisms of democracy, regardless of who occupies the White House.
Award-winning investigative journalist Russ Baker lays out in compelling detail the untold story of how a network of financiers, oilmen, and intelligence operatives shaped the political careers of two presidents Bush- and what the Bushes did for them in return.
The Fluoride Deception unearths the mystery of how a grim workplace poison and the most damaging environmental pollutant of the cold war was added to our drinking water and toothpaste.
A chronicle of abuse of power and of the manufacture of stste-sponsored medical propaganda, The Fluoride Deception reveals how a secretive group of powerful industries, all of which faced extensive litigation for fluoride pollution, collaborated with officials from the National Institute of Dental Research to launder fluoride’s public image.
This book is the best one to date detatiling the enormity of the Bush family’s blood thursty drive to power by slavishly protecting their insestual business interests in the Petroleum, Banking, Espianage, and Weapons manufacturing industries.
Simply put, the Bush family and their business partners have made their fortunes but giving Third World dictators like Saddam Hussain and the Saudis weapons in exchange for cheap oil and lucrative industrial contracts (anybody heard of Halliburton, Bechtel, and GE) who regularly work with tyrants to oppress the local population and keep raw materials cheap.
Including Bin Laden and Hitler, to name a few of their more well known strategic partners.
As the real depths and ramifications of the Bush-Saudi Co oil-dependancey begins to break through the Mass Media blackout and see the light of day. Like a house of cards beneath the dancing feet of Satan on a crystal-meth bender, the absurd fiction of “Bush as Messianc Savior” is crumbling faster than than all the kings spin meisters and propgandists can repair.
The fact is: Most of these facts have been in the public record for decades (including the Bush familie’s role in the illegal rebuilding of the Nazi military before WWII and their remarkable similar rolecreating the latest boogy man Saddam Hussein.
(Some of you may be asking ‘what ever happened to Bin Laden’. . . you people will be quietly escorted to the door and never seen again.)
Love him or hate him, Michael Moore is here to kick ass and take names. More importantly, he gives us the facts, tells us who was involved, and lets us decide for ouselves if we want to start kicking ass, or keep getting screwed.
This carefully documented book makes it abundatly clear that the current unelected administration should be removed from office and hung from the nearest power pole for treason.
If you believe that a real working Democracy depends on a well informed population, then do the country a favor and start informing yourself by reading this book.
Did Hitler simply seize power through a few inspirational speeches, or did he use fear, intimidation, and a well funded propaganda campaign (backed by wealthy industrialists who thought Fascism would be a great way to boost the bottom line) to drive his country into war?
The story of IG Farben is an Enron executive’s wet dream. IG Farben was the German industrial monopoly that turned the once Democratic Germany into a tool for terror and global domination simply because it was good for business.
Mussolini said, “Fascism, should more apropriately be called Corporateism, because it is the merger of State and Corporate Power.” But more to the point, Fascism is great for the bottom line. Especially if your Business is war.
If you’ve never heard of IG Farben, then the real story of Hitler’s rise to power and the Military Industrial Complex that backed him may come as a shock. Especially given the paralels and connections between the administrations of both President’s Bush who were backed by many of the same people and corporations that backed Hitler.
Upon reflection, the fact that the Bush family and their business partners helped finance the rise of Hitler is hardly a surprise given former head of the CIA George H. W. Bush’s lifelong efforts to arm and finance fundamentalist right-wing dictatorships throughout the world. (Need I mention Saddam Hussein, Bin Laden’s Mujhadin, the Contras, and Saudi Arabia?)
Considering Bush Junta’s maniacal drive toward war, some of you may be wondering how the Benevolent Machine of Media and Government could be used to start a war on the other side of the world by lying to congress, ignoring public opinion, and compounding the massive fraud by sticking American tax payers with the bill.
Some of you might also remember that it’s all happened before. He who does not learn from history is doomed to repeat it.
If you’ve heard anything about the Bush administration’s habit of doing business with terrorists, arms dealers, and drug dealers, you might find it interesting to know that treason and trading with the enemy are a long and lucrative tradition for the Bush family and their business partners.
As if training and financing the rise of Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden, Manuel Noriega, and the Contras (while rigging the Florida election and collapsing a few Savings and Loans) weren’t enough, Grandpa Prescott Bush also helped the giants of American industry rebuild the Nazi war machine and built the family fortune on that terror and bloodshed.
Prescott Bush, and his lawyers the Dulles brothers, did everything in their power to merge their clients (Standard Oil, ITT, Ford, GM, Dupont, and GE to name a few) with the German Industrial Combine IG Farben, in an elaborate plan to divide the world’s resources and markets under a Fascist Oligarchy led by the business leaders of the day (themselves).
For those who haven’t heard a definition of Fascism lately, I refer to Benito Mussilini (who should know): “Fascism should more appropriately be called ‘Corporatism’ because it is the merger of State and Corporate power.”
Read up kids, history repeats itself . Everything old is new again. . .
