NO BUSH MECHANICS THESE: Bush Sr, W, and new kid on the block Jeb Bush. The US presidency, seemingly, is now a virtual birthright for these bogus Americans.
“I John Ellis Bush do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. So Help me God.” – January 20 2017
In January 2013, I did a piece headed “BUSH SR MUST HANG” as the eighth instalment of the JFK Series under my weekly column This Earth My Brother.
Of the succession of men who have strutted the Oval Office from Harrison Truman (1945-1953) to the incumbent Barack Obama, I wrote: “Barack Obama is a time-out interlude, holding fort for the next neo-Nazi President, one of either John Ellis Bush (Jeb) or his son George P Bush, one of whom takes over from Barack in 2017. That’s how the cycle runs folks.”
At the time I asserted so, Jeb Bush was yet to signal he was contemplating the highest office in the land. He had in fact hitherto parried suggestions to the effect that he might make a bid in that direction. Thankfully, I’m not American and so I wasn’t fooled. I knew he was going to run because he was destined to be America’s 45th President. So when on December 16 last year he for the first time expressly made known that he was exploring the possibility of a tilt at the presidency, I was not roused though naturally I was revolted. It did not help my sense of disgust that in the ensuing delirium of snap opinion polls, Jeb shot right to the top of potential GOP candidates by margins of at least 10 points to the good.
When it comes to the pinch, however, Jeb has the resolute Hilary Clinton to contend with as she is convinced she was fated to be America’s first breasted president. In a head-to-head popularity match-up with the former First Lady, Jeb trails by a numerologically foreboding 13 points according to one authoritative survey. But Democrats need not lick their chops: Hilary is simply a mock contender meant to give the impression that the US presidency is not a coronation but a do or die, blow for blow contest. If I were a Yankee, I would not fixate myself on the talking heads whilst they spew forth the Gallup stats but would instead direct my gaze up the stars. In there, it is written, in black and white, that on January 20 2017, Chief Justice John Glover Roberts will administer the Oath of Presidential Office not to Hilary Rodham Clinton but to John Ellis Bush. Of that I swear by John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Of course you are wondering why I can be so definite in my prognosis. Let me explain why.
A SHAM OF A DEMOCRACY
First, let me dispel two deeply ingrained myths about the US. The one is that “God’s own country” is a democracy. It is not. America has never been a democracy from the day it was founded. The word democracy does not feature both in the Declaration of Independence (1776) and the Constitution of the United States of America (1789). The Founding Fathers were skeptical of and anxious about democracy. Let us listen to just one of their ilk called James Madison: “Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and in general have been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths”. The setup the Founding Fathers envisaged from the word go was a republic dressed as a democracy and there is a difference. Madison again: “By a republic I mean a government in which a scheme of representation takes place, opens a different prospect and promises the cure for which we are seeking.”
A republic is a scheme and I need not explain that as it is self-explanatory. Since the powers that be in the US frowns upon democracy, they devised a way with which to circumvent it in decision-making once in a while. This was in the form of Executive Orders, which are issued by the President and have the force of law although they are not subject to Congressional approval. A sample of the tally of Executive Orders per presidential tenure goes thus: Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 3522; Ike, 484; George W Bush, 291; Barack Obama to date, 194. The closest we have to Executive Orders in Botswana are Presidential Directives. In Kenneth Kaunda’s Zambia, Executive orders took the form of Statutory Instruments and believe you me “Super Ken” pronounced them forth with a flourish.
Another very mistaken belief is that US Presidents are elected. Far from being elected, they are actually selected and typically decades before they trumpet their candidature. The anointing is done by frontmen of the Military-Industrial Complex at the behest of the Jesuit-General. For instance, very few people are aware that Obama was tipped to be future President whilst he was studying at Columba University at age 20/21. The news was broken to him by Democratic Party Tsar Zbigniew Brzezinski. and Republican Party fiend Henry Kissinger, presently two of the few Methuselah’s of American politics. Whereas in public the projected impression is that of two cutthroat opposition parties furiously at odds with each other, in reality the two are actually joined at the hip – what I call opposames.
By the same token, when Bill Clinton stepped forward to feature in the Democratic primaries and later on challenged incumbent President George H W Bush, he wasn’t simply a former and undistinguished governor of Arkansas. He had long been prepped as the guy who was going to either take over from Bush Sr or dislodge him if he somehow rubbed the Cabal – courtesy of Winston Churchill – the wrong way. Indeed on pages 184-185 of her book Access Denied, Cathy O’ Brien, who was a mind-controlled slave of America’s high and mighty, writes that in 1984, she heard Bush Sr tell Clinton that “when the American people become disillusioned with Republicans leading them into the New World Order, you as a Democrat will be put into place.” Clinton ascended to the presidency in 1993, almost ten years since the “prize” was promised him. The fact that the elections that catapulted him to power were a charade is partly attested by the absurdity (which the shockingly gullible American populace took lying down) of Bush Sr’s and Clinton’s campaign managers, namely James Carville and Mary Matlin respectively, being husband and wife! Of course to the Illuminati this was no big deal as in the grand scheme of things the couple served masters who were simply two sides of the same Mephistophelean coin.
MOST POWERFUL PRESIDENT
If I were to ask you as to who was the most powerful American President ever, you would in all likelihood strain to venture a response particularly that being the “archetypal democracy”, America has never had a Stalin or a Mao. Well, this will probably take you aback: America’s most powerful President ever was George HW Bush. When he became President in 1989, that was not the first time he had ruled America. Of the Presidents who were in office from JFK to George W, the only one on whom Bush Sr had no sway was Jimmy Carter. The rest dutifully answered to Bush, including the “Democrat” Bill Clinton. It was actually worse with Bill Clinton because he owed his turn at the presidency to Bush himself.
Writes Cathy O’ Brien in Access Denied: “In 1984, I was at the Swiss Villa Ampitheatre in Lampe, Missouri, when Bush and Clinton were talking about their New World Order. Bush was really pleased with how well Clinton’s Mena cocaine operation was funding the New World Order effort and he assured Clinton he would be rewarded politically”. It was Bush Sr, folks, who positioned Bill Clinton in line for presidential office. Bush Sr was meant to serve two terms but he made the mistake of upsetting the Jews when he withheld the US’s paternalistic and routine monetary assistance to the Israeli government subject to conditions Israel considered unpalatable. The 1989 elections were meant to be simply a dress rehearsal for Bill Clinton as he was ideally “scripted” to take occupancy of the Oval Office in 1997. Thus alienated by Bush Sr, the highly influential and moneyed Jewish lobby nipped his presidency in the bud prematurely by dramatically propelling Clinton to office. After a whole life time of being so loyal to the Illuminati cause, Bush was as stunned as he was gutted.
In regard to the other Presidents before Obama, Bush Sr was their line manager save for Carter. For instance, Bush Sr had an office next door to Richard Nixon’s so that he could barge in any time he saw fit and bark instructions at him. When Clinton was President, Cathy O’ Brien wrote in a subsequent edition of her other book, Tranceformation of America, that “Clinton poses no more leadership or loyalty to our country than Ronald Reagan did since both follow (ed) New World Order directives from former UN Ambassador and CIA Director George Bush”. As for his own son W, Bush Sr controlled him by proxy, through Vice President Dick Cheney. At one time, when Cheney reported to Bush Sr that W was being a shade intransigent on an issue, Bush Sr picked up a phone to directly ram sense into his son and father and son had a tiff which ended in W curtly hanging up on the old man.
THE JFK BENEDICTION
If you are wondering why Bush Sr has been able to wield such political power for such an inordinately long time, then you didn’t read my JFK Series. To begin with, the Bushes, as I demonstrated in the series, are not Americans: they are Nazis. They were transplanted from Germany at the fall of the Third Reich to come and assume covert hegemony over the US. That Bush Sr was one of the founders of the CIA in the 1940s was not coincidental. All US Presidents to date save for Carter, Clinton, and Obama have been either Nazis proper or Nazi Chester Missings.
Although Bush Sr was promised the presidency half a century ago, this was not solely on account of his Nazi antecedents: it crucially had to do with the role he played in the JFK assassination. We now know that it was he who carried out on-scene supervision of the assassination at Dealey Plaza and was even arrested shortly thereafter but was freed when it was realised that he was one of the country’s untouchables. All the prime movers in the JFK assassination with demonstrable political pedigrees were promised the presidency. Besides Bush Sr, they included Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan. Indeed, W is on record as having repeatedly boasted to his friends whilst in high school that his father was going to be President some day. Barbara Bush too took special pleasure in telling her friends in hushed tones that she was a First Lady in waiting.
Yet Bush was content not only to be President in his own right. The privilege had to extend to his brood. Just like Joseph Kennedy created a powerful political dynasty, Bush Sr also was determined to mould his own that in the fullness of time would even eclipse the Kennedys. One way he ensured this came to pass was to engineer the 1999 aerial demise of JFK Jr, who was not only tipped to be the future President by the drooling body politic but had indicated to close friends and kith and kin that he did indeed have presidential designs.
Meanwhile, the Bush boys had long been told they were headed for No. 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Writes Cathy O’Brien in Access Denied of a conversation she conducted in 1992: “I did see Bush Jr being conditioned and trained for the role of President at the Mount Shasta, California military programming compound in 1986. He is not very bright though, so I don’t know how they could possibly prop him up.” Before each became President, he first of all had to gain experience in the exercise of political power at the level of state governor. As such, W was maneuvered to become governor of Texas in 1995 and Jeb governor of Florida in 1999, both prestigious and preeminent gubernatorial perches.
Thus far, America has had two Bush presidencies, the 41st and 43rd. The 45th was preordained and it comes to pass in January 2017. Will that be the end of the Bush scrum? Far from it. On January 2nd this very year, a Bush took the oath of office as Commissioner of the Texas General Land Office. It is just a matter of time before he makes a bid for governorship. Before long, we will be calling him President George Prescott Bush, the grandson of former President George H W Bush, the son of former President Jeb Bush, and the nephew of former President George W Bush.
No: the dynasty will live on, probably till Kingdom come. So trust me folks, 47 is on the way!
Botswana health officials have confirmed the new COVOD-19 variant, which was first found in India. The Ministry of Health and Wellness has through a press statement informed members of the public that a new COVID-19 variant (B.1.617), first discovered in India. The Indian variant was confirmed in Botswana on 13 May 2021.
According to Christopher Nyanga, spokesperson at the Ministry, this followed a case investigation within Greater Gaborone, involving people of Indian origin who arrived in the country on the 24th April 2021.
“As at 16 May 2021, the B. 1. 617 variant was confirmed in two (2) people. The clients are currently receiving medical care and remain stable with no life-threatening symptoms. The two (2) cases were part of 383 people (both Batswana and some Indian nationals) who were tested for COVID-19. From this number, 43 tested positive, with two (2) showing the B. 1. 617 variant as already alluded to. Contact tracing has been expanded in line with COVID-19 protocols. All contacts and confirmed cases have been evacuated to facility based quarantine and isolation respectively, for close monitoring,” Nyanga narrated.
The World Health Organization recently announced that the Indian Covid-19 variant was a global concern, with some data suggesting the variant has “increased transmissibility” compared with other strains.
Meanwhile in the wake of Botswana’s confirmation of the Indian variant, Nyanga reminded the public of the government intervention to control the introduction of new variants of public health concern into the country. He stated that all those who have travelled or transited through areas of high risk as previously communicated on 3rd May 2021 upon return shall immediately quarantine in a central area to be identified by the Ministry of Health and Wellness for a period not exceeding ten (10) days; Repeat Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test after seven (7) days of quarantine and be discharged as per the outcome of the results.
He said the requirements are complementary to the mandatory requirements of producing on arrival a negative PCR test not older than 72hrs from the time the sample was collected
“The public is advised to remain vigilant and minimize the spread of COVID-19 by following the already outlined preventative measures such as washing of hands with soap or use of a hand sanitizer, wearing of face masks, avoiding crowded places/social distancing and avoiding non-essential movement,” Nyanga said.
The India variant – officially called B.1.617.2 – is one of four mutated versions of coronavirus which have been designated as being “of concern” by transitional public health bodies, with others first being identified in Kent, South Africa and Brazil.
The lawyers representing former President Lt Gen Ian Khama, Ramalepa Attorneys have come forth dismissing a response letter penned down by Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) activist MacDonald Peloetletse after he was slapped with a P1.5 million lawsuit for defamation of their client.
Tebogo Tladi, an attorney at Ramalepa, said last week Thursday Peloetletse took to social media to publish a substantively false, wrongful and unlawful statement about Khama. MacDonald Peloetletse’s commentary which was posted on Gabz FM News page reads, “I am a former soldier. Everything former President SKI Khama said here is a LIE. In fact, soldiers suffered more under Khama than under his predecessors.
He actually stole money that the UN had paid to the soldiers who went for the operations and paid them less than a quarter of what was actually due to them. “Unhappy soldiers took the BDF to court and won, the BDF is still struggling to pay the debts! Khama can fool some people, but not all the people and not all the time.
“In fact many soldiers, serving, retired and those that resigned and were in the operations during Khama’s time get even more annoyed to such disrespectful statements by Ian Khama.” Khama’s lawyer says the impugned statement was published with the intention to injure his client (Khama) in his personality rights, good name and dignity, further indicating that the statement has damaged his good reputation.
“We have therefore been instructed by Client to demand, as we hereby do, that you publish on the same forum a retraction and a full and unconditional apology to Client within three days of receipt of this letter- and that you deliver such apology in a formal letter to the Office of the Former President, Dr Khama. In the event that you have not compiled with this demand by close of business on Monday 10th May 2021, our Client will assume that you have refused to comply with this demand.”
To top it all off, Khama demands that Peloetletse pay him P1.5 million in damages for defamation. “Furthermore, we hold instructions to demand as we hereby do, that you pay our Client damages for defamation in the sum of P1, 500,000.00 within seven days of receipt of this letter.” In the event that Peloetletse fails to pay the amount of damages demanded by Khama, Tladi says they will institute legal proceedings for the recovery of the aforesaid damages.
In his response letter addressed to Ramalepa Attorneys, Peloetletse said that he requests enlightenment and clarification that he be provided with proof that the allegations and comments which they attribute to him were indeed authored by him and that the platform which the comments were placed was not hacked.
“Please also advise if whether your clients has been endowed with a “special particular privilege status” that restricts the citizens of this country from commenting or responding to public statements made by your client in the course of political discourse especially when made on public forum and relate to matters of general public concern. (I trust that your brilliant legal mind is well informed with respect to the jurisprudence in such matters)”.
Peloetletse also said he would like to share with the attorneys a video which was posted on a public forum. “Please listen carefully to the conversations and discussion herein and advice if possibly such discussions form a reasonable basis for a justifiably rebuttal by any Motswana Citizen to the public pronouncements and defamatory statements made by your client about our government (bearing in mind of course a citizens constitutional right to freedom of speech and freedom of expression).’’
Consulted for further comment on the matter on Thursday after receiving Peloetletse’s response, Khama’s attorney Tebogo Tladi said the letter doesn’t hold any water. “The only way out for him is to prove the truth of the allegations on his comment or deny publication. He does not answer substantively to the defamation and does not respond to the demand of an apology or payment of damages.
So his letter really contains largely matters irrelevant to the substance of the letter of demand. His response in fact presents no legally cognizable defence at all- it would appear he responded without the benefit of legal advice, which would not be prudent for such an important case. So we will proceed to issue summons and wait to see what defences he will plead in court.’’
Botswana and Zambia this week celebrated the opening of a multi-million Dollar infrastructural project, the Kazungula Bridge, projected to contribute around P100 million annually for Botswana. This project comes after the signing of the 2012 Agreement between the two countries to construct a bridge that would ease movement of goods.
President Mokgweetsi Masisi said the Kazungula Bridge will open avenues for improved trade, job creation and economic diversification in both countries. Further, the Bridge will significantly accelerate Southern African Development Committee (SADC) regional integration agenda which Botswana and Zambia are vigorously pursuing.
“By growing our strategic partnerships through this project, we have improved the development and competitiveness of our economies to attract more private sector investment, thereby, supporting our efforts to create employment, especially for the burgeoning youth,” Masisi said at the opening ceremony in Kazungula on Monday.
The Kazungula Bridge comprises a road and rail bridge over the Zambezi River, directly linking Botswana and Zambia. It has One-Stop-Border Post facilities on both sides, which will enhance the operational efficiency at entry points, replicated on both sides of the boarder.
The Bridge was originally conceived as a critical link in the African North-South Corridor under the African Union’s New Partnership (NEPAD) for Africa’s Development programme. It has since evolved to encompass a multimodal transport plan under the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA).
The PIDA programme, which encompasses liberalisation of air travel, rail links, road, water and all other modes of transport has only one objective: to unite the States of Africa in order to foster trade on the continent
“Connectivity of our nations will in no small measure, promote people to people interactions and uplifts their standard of living. I am pleased to state that the completion of this project is a clear demonstration of our commitment to PIDA.”
The 260 million US Dollar Kazungula Bridge was commissioned by Zambian President, Edgar Lungu and President Masisi. President Lungu said the bridge was a monumental effort linking Zambia internally and externally to ease the movement of goods and services.
“I have held talks with my counterpart in Botswana that this project must run daily up to 22 hours as soon as possible and you the technocrats must not play ping-pong with us after making these public procurements,” Lungu said at the official opening in Kazungula.
For his part, DRC President Felix Tshisekedi said the project was tandem with the Africa Union (AU) goals and priority areas for Agenda 2063 which called for a prosperous Africa, based on inclusive growth and sustainable development.
The new Kazungula Bridge replaces the Kazungula Ferry, a pontoon ferry across the 400-metre-wide Zambezi River between Botswana and Zambia. It was one of the largest ferries in South-Central Africa, having a capacity of 70 tonnes.
In 2003 the ferry was the site of a disaster when a severely overloaded Zambian truck capsized one of the pontoons and 18 people drowned. The accident was blamed on the lack of weighbridges in Zambia to check the weight of trucks.
In August 2007, the governments of Zambia and Botswana announced a deal to construct a bridge at the site to replace the ferry. The existence of a short boundary of about 150 meters between Zambia and Botswana was apparently agreed to during various meetings involving Heads of State and officials from all four States in the 2006-2010 period.
The route for this new bridge crosses the boundary without entering Zimbabwe and Namibia. Zimbabwe already has a bridge into Zambia at Victoria Falls, 70KM from Kazungula. Namibia on the other hand has a bridge into Zambia at Katima Mulilo about 150KM upriver.
