JEB BUSH: HEIR OF BUSH CRIMINAL NETWORK IN FLORIDA
Earlier this week, Jeb Bush made his announcement that he would be running for president in 2016. News and media outlets have noted that he was-- and has been-- careful not to lean too much on his family name, as many in the Republican base are suspicious of the Bush Dynasty. The Republican base is right to be suspicious and the mass media is correct that it is central to the Jeb campaign that he enforces that he’s “his own man”. But neither group fully reveals the reasons why Jeb and the entire Bush family are to be considered as criminals.
The story of Jeb Bush and his family are too vast to be told in one briefing. We will begin by examining the role he played in his father’s duplicitous scheming before examining Jeb’s political platform as it emerges in the coming future.
JEB BUSH AND ANTI CASTRO CUBANS
When Bush Sr. stopped in Miami during his 1988 campaign, he addressed a constituency he has been closely associated with for three decades: the Miami Cubans. In the “George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography” by Webster Tarpley describes the role of Jeb Bush as the representative of the Bush Dynasty in Florida is described as follows:
“There was a good turnout of Republican Cuban Americans, who lionized George and also his son Jeb Bush, the former Dade County GOP chair who was now the Florida Secretary of Commerce. Obviously with some help from the family network, Jeb had been lobbying the Immigration and Naturalization Service to procure work permits for the wave of Nicaraguan émigrés flooding into south Florida, not a few of whom were part of the contra drug-running operations.” (p. 419)
Earlier in Dr. Tarpley’s expose, Jeb Bush is revealed as a facilitator of DC-6 aircrafts loaded with drugs from Contra bases in Honduras to Homestead Air Force Base in Florida.
“With reference to the covert arms shipments out of Miami, George Bush’s son Jeb said: ‘Sure, there’s a pretty good chance that arms were shipped, but does that break any law? I’m not sure it’s illegal. The Neutrality Act is a completely untested notion, established in the 1800s.’”(p. 357)
Later, Jeb is directly implicated in drug smuggling and murder during his time in Dade County, Florida.
“Tommy Teagle, an ex-convict interviewed by [Miami Herald reporter] Thomas Burdick, said he feared that George Bush would have him killed because information in his possession would implicate Jeb Bush in cocaine smuggling. Teagle's story was that [Cigarette boat racer] Don Aronow and Jeb Bush had been partners in cocaine trafficking and were $2.5 million in debt to their Columbian suppliers. Dr. Robert Magoon, a friend of Aronow, is quoted in the same location as having heard a similar report. But Teagle rapidly changed his story (Blue Thunder: How the Mafia Owned and Finally Murdered Cigarette Boat King Donald Aronow, pg 351, 357) Ultimately; an imprisoned convict was indicted for the murder of Aronow.”
Other investigations into Jeb’s past reveal that his career was jumpstarted by working for the Texas Commerce Bank, which was founded by the family of Bush Sr.’s friend James Baker III. In the late 1970s, Jeb was sent to Venezuela to serve as vice chairman and manager of the new branch there. This bank became the hub for money and arms to flow from the South American drug cartels and CIA to the Nicaraguan Contras and other insurrections in South and Central America.
After returning to the States and settling down in Miami, Jeb became business partners with Cuban-American Armando Codina, together the two purchased an office building in 1985 with financing coming from a savings and loan bank named Broward Savings. Three years later, when Broward was closed during the savings and loans crisis of the 80s and 90s, the federal government found the partner’s $4.6 million loan was in default. Rather than repay the loan or sell their office building, the federal regulators simply reduced the amount owed by Bush and Codina to just $500,000. Bush paid the drastically reduced price, kept his office building and shoved off the other $4.1 million to taxpayers.
In 1986 Jeb was hired as the leasing agent for a commercial office building built and owned by Camilo Padreda. Padreda began as a counterintelligence officer for Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista then worked for the CIA created “Bureau for the Repression of Communist Activities” (Spanish acronym BRAC) from 1953-59 but “can’t comment” on any relation with the CIA after that. In 1982 he and Bay of Pigs veteran Hernandez Cartaya ripped off $500,000 from the Texas savings and loan bank Jefferson Savings in 1982. When the FBI indicted the pair, a call from the CIA informed them that Cartaya was in their employment. The charges against Padreda were dropped and Cartaya’s reduced to one count of tax evasion. It has been admitted to the House Intelligence Committee in the 1990s that CIA operatives had misused savings and loans to fund covert operations aiding the Nicaraguan Contras.
Bush also worked as a relator for Padreda’s friend and CIA asset in attempts to assassinate Castro, Miguel Recarey. Recarey owned the massive health maintenance organization, International Medical Centres (IMC), and paid Jeb $75,000 to find a new headquarters, but the company never actually moved locations. In 1985, Jeb acted as an intermediary between IMC and Contras supporters (like his vice president father) to provide free medical care to the guerilla insurgents. Recarey would later flee a federal investigation into his company International Medical Centres fo health-care fraud; at his request, Jeb contacted fedral regulators to ask that Recarey be given a fair hearing on an exemption from laws that would unfavorably affect his business empire. From his refugee in Spain, Recarey told ABC’s 20/20 he had only hired Jeb Bush to gain political influence.
In light of all the above damaging evidence of the integrity of Jeb Bush, we may see a return of his father George “Poppy” Bush to the public eye to once again act as a vanguard for his son’s rise to power. When Neil Bush was implicated in the massive fraud perpetuated on the Silverado Savings and Loans of Denver Colorado, “Poppy” was in the midst of his own 1988 presidential race. He bolstered Neil’s self-defense campaign in a self-righteous monologue to a press conference in mid-July saying:
“But what father wouldn't express a certain confidence in the honor of his son? And that's exactly the way I feel about it, and I feel very strongly about it. And for those who want to challenge it, whether they’re in Congress or elsewhere, let the system work and then we can all make a conclusion as to his honor and integrity. And it’s tough on people in public life to some degree. And I’ve got three other sons and they all want to go to the barricades, every one of them, when they see some cartoon they don’t like, particularly those that are factually incorrect in total—total demeaning of the honor of their brother. They want to—they want to do what any other—any other kids would do. And I say: you calm down now, we’re in a different role now; you can’t react like you would if your brother was picked on in a street fight—that’s not the way the system works. But we have great emotions that I share with Barbara, I share with my sons and daughter that I won’t share with you, except to say: One, as a president I am determined to stay out of this and let it work and let it work fairly. And secondly, I have confidence in the honor and integrity of my son, and if the system finds he’s done something wrong he will be the first to step up and do what's right.” (New York Times, 1990)
If his father does not come out to defend his honor, there is little doubt that the world of the controlled media will take his place. In future reports, we will continue to do the work the mass media has surreptitiously excluded and expose the Bush family dynasty where we find it.
