Product Description


This is the groundbreaking classic expose of the Bush family, cited by all that followed it, yet still unmatched. Exhaustively documented by intensive search of dozens of archives and months of interviews with government insiders, this biography digs up all the dirt - frightening, gory, hilarious - on the Bush dynasty: how the Bushes made their fortune building up Hitler and the Nazi war machine; Iran-Contra; Zapata's Watergate burglars; the Reagan shooting; the 'war hero' story; the secret government; 'Eugenic' population reduction plans; Kissinger, China, and genocide in the Third World; Luring Iraq to attack Kuwait; The Bush Leveraged Buyout Mob, theft of a nation; Jupiter Island, Skull and Bones, and other power bases. Essential reading as long as this Anglo-American oligarchy directs American politics, the "Unauthorised Biography" is a vivid X-ray of the presidential dynasty, and the private forces dominating both major political parties.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The authors explain the life and times of president G.Bush I as a man who is a major chess piece in the network of the mighty investment bank Brown Brothers Harriman and the freemason lodge `Skull and Bones'.

The authors sketch a dark picture of an oligarch in the Platonic sense: G. Bush as a scion of a wealthy patrician family, born to reign over the `democratic masses'.

Politically, G. Bush was implicated in the Iran-Contras scandal, the Panama and first Iraq invasions, the replacement of Formosa (Taiwan) by the PR of China (negotiating lucrative deals for his friends). He buried the investigation into the Hinckley (a brother of a friend of one of his sons) shooting of President Reagan.

Economically, he defended his friends in the Pennzoil-Texaco trial about the take-over of Getty Oil. He saved the NCBC (NationsBank) from bankruptcy by `massive favors and graft at the expense of the tax payer'. He relentlessly intervened on behalf of the oil cartels for their ground-tax privileges and oil depletion allowances. His war on drugs was only `rhetorical'.

Ideologically, the authors state that he sided with those propagating population control, eugenics, race science and the `inferiority' of the blacks.

Personally, they stress his mental instability and his `boundless lust for power'.

Original but important is their analysis of the Watergate scandal. For them it is a coup d'état, instrumental in laying the basis for an authoritarian-totalitarian regime, not less than a rearrangement of the dominant institutions of the US government in favor of the intelligence communities.

Nixon was dumped for his inability to manage the collapse of the dollar. However, as W.

Tarpley and Chaitkin have written here a well-researched biography of George HW Bush. The book was written around 1990 and yet it still resonates to this day.
The authors' style is easy to read and follow and you will learn a great deal about the subject.
Anyone wishing to understand the current world situation should read this book as event and policies shaped by Bush throughout his career continue to have an effect to this day.

Think you know Bush? Think again.

Using dates as headings, the book reads like a diary of a man who travelled with Bush through out his life. Everything little political detail is capured and written about.

remember the attempt on REagan's life by the Jodie Foster fan? ALOT more is added to that story in this book. He was the youngest boy of the famil, and his family were very closes with the Bushes. Yes, THOSE Bushes. And Bush 1 had planned to meet for dinner THAT afternoon the would-be assassins older brother, having already set up a mock "swearing in" to the Presidency in case Reagan should somehow die.

You don't hear THAT on T.V

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mr. N. A. Bonnar on 23 July 2009
Format: Paperback
I would say that for historians this book is an invaluable source of some very detailed data, constantly referencing itself as you progress through the book gives the opinion that Webster is keen to ensure that the Lawyers are kept far enough from the door to give him enough breathing space to make his points - this is where the book allows in a fundamental weakness in Tarpleys style of writing. Wading through line after line after line of who is a member of what corporation and who references back to who and in what capacity is at best tedious and at worst like reading the complete works of Mao Tse Tung in its original language. I would suggest that complex relationships are best demonstrated with diagrams and not left to the reader to 'join the dots' - he makes several good points about how interconnected Bush seniors cronies are and then uses page after page after page to demonstrate this, by page 100 I got the point, by page 200 I was losing the will to read on. Webster if you are reading this review, please find a way to reduce the number of paragraphs you use to make what are some very good points, your topic to an historian is critical but unless you can find a way to carry the reader you'll lose most, whilst I appreciate this is not a Jackie Collins novel never the less you run the risk of losing a very loyal band of supporters. However - it's not all bad, this book overall is an incredible read, George Tarpley borders on genius and I think all serious recorders of history and political events should study his words carefully, as long winded as they are you can't hide the truth..keep joining the dots....and keep following the money.

And the cocaine abuse was only the least of their flaws! 15 Jan. 2005
By Robin Orlowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Bush family has spent millions projecting an image of 'down home' folks whose only concerns are 'faith' and 'family'. It's a pretty picture, but the authors of this book affirm that it is only an image. They are wolves in sheep clothing.

Since the days of their association with Hitler, the Bush family is only interested in power. However they get it and however they can keep it is the only thing which really matters to these people. Their obligatory talks about 'morals'...etc are just put in to give the illusion of caring about democracy. If they had their own way, the Bush family would have all of us living under a dictatorship.

This book is vastly different from most of the anti-Bush texts which flood the market. It eschews cheap shots to instead bring serious evidence against America's reigning monarchy. It also explains how Junior's 'bumblings' are only the more public versions of what daddy did dating back from his job as CIA head. Insteaad of being embarassed...etc the Bush family is actually proud of his actions!

Pre-Requisite to Any Further Understanding of American History 9 Sept. 2005
By cvairag - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Tarpley's massive and insightgful history of the rise of the Bush family to power and prominence - should be required reading for every high school (yeah - PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL) American history course - as it is for every sincere student of our nation's destiny - and yet, we may likely die dreaming that it someday will be. Well, if we can't seemingly do anything about the problem - at the least, we can get educated about what really happened in America over the past century - and why.

The pinnicle of Tarpley's achievement is that through the meticulous sorting of a myriad of research, the psychological portrait of 'Poppy' Bush emerges - a tragic and disturbing figure - obsessed with a seemingly confused and distorted self-justifying version of patriotism - driven by a primal fear of personal failure - and, lest it never be said by any but the eloquent Tarpley - unmitigated guilt. Yet, to Tarpley's credit, the evidence is weighed sagely, without cant, without spin, and the facts are set forth to testify.

What sets Tarpley's classic biography apart is the richness of the narrative and the precision of the investigation. The details of how Nixon found his way into political power from obscurity in a few years - How the Bush family did as much for the Nazis (before, during, and after WWII) as they ever have done for the Republicans (the root ideological distinctions between the two parties seems as blurred now as ever) - and many other gordian mysteries of modern American history are deftly unravelled and spelled out in coherent fashion.

Whether you agree with him or not, you must take your issues to the facts themselves - and no one has marshaled them in the detail which Tarpley did way back in 1992 - and from thence, justify your conclusions.

Better yet, you can read at least some of Tarpley on the net. Although as an investment, the hard copy may appreciate in value one day, not merely as a historical narrative, but as a bona fide historical document in its own right. That is, if rights, are to be part of our future.

Thank you Tarpley for your courage, your perseverance, and your love for America. A writer of the highest order - amazingly, waiting to be discovered by most readers.

Yes There are Really Conspiracies! 15 Feb. 2003
By William Hare - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If it walks like a conspiracy, talks like a conspiracy, and acts like a conspiracy, it is very possible that we might have a conspiracy. The apologists of the status quo, particularly the Bushies and the corporate establishment to which they are beholden, seek to ridicule books like this and say they are all part of an absurd conspiracy syndrome. What they fervently hope is that you will not dare read them. Had enough Americans read this sizzler it is entirely possible that Bush Junior's forces may not have been close enough on election night to remain within stealing distance of the presidential election, finally achieved through the legal prostitution of Federal Society cronies, including one subservient Uncle Tom with a penchant for Rush Limbaugh, namely Clarence Thomas.
When you read this book you wonder long and hard about whether this was really such an unfortunate coincidence that Bush Sr. in his mudslinging 1988 campaign had ardent Nazis working in his minorities division. It was only when Congressman Stephen Solarz and others sniffed the foul odor and rose up in indignation that the elder Bush expressed dismay and dismissed the miscreants, expressing shock in the process.
Just rewind from 1988 to Tarpley's analysis of how the Bush family got rolling in the banking business, with juicy contracts with the Nazis and strengthening of the Third Reich war machine through loans and subsequent sales for pig iron. Then there was that strange society that still remains, and which Poppy and Junior both belonged to at Yale, along with William F. Buckley Jr., "Skull and Bones." Just a few harmless fraternity pranksters? I doubt it. Check out the records of the members through the years and observe all the hellish havoc they have reeked on America and throughout various portions of the world. It all happened by accident? Hardly. Yes, well, it might actually be a conspiracy! But conspiracies don't exist. Ask any loyal Bushie.
This book has become an underground classic and rightfully so. Its author knows literally where certain bodies are buried vis-a-vis the Bush clan and is not afraid to reveal the facts. Thank God there are a few people out there like Tapley who will not be intimidated and continue to speak the truth no matter what the potential consequences might be.

Mindblowing 23 Feb. 2005
By Shannon S. Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I first encountered this book in the early 90's when subscribing to the LaRouche run newspaper "The New Federalist." The book was reviewed and advertised within it's pages along with the pages of the Schiller Institute's "Fidelio" magazine. As a young person who questions, and moreover, had reservations about the Bush family's legitimacy as leaders, this book became a godsend. This book is a masterpiece of research and "yes" does have an agenda. That agenda being to expose certain realities to our country's past, the Bush family's, that of secret societies, etc. This book obviously has critics. I mean let's face it, they're still in power. But this book did it's best to make a statement or propose an arguement for why our country could do better for itself and for the world at large. Regardless of it's flaws, or even those of the various Bush's, this book is cause for reflection and is worthy of anyone who claims to think for themselves.

I never imagined what we were dealing with. 23 Dec. 2005
By DanInFlorida - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Before reading the book I just though that GHWB was some bumbling a**-kisser who wanted to be president. But now I know that we are dealing with a multi-generational family of scum whose loyalty in no way is to the USA or the American people. I know now that they traded with the Nazis during the war. I've learned that there actually are people who haven't gotten over the Revolutionary War. It's just incredible how much information is in this book, well presented, and totally believable.
