George Herbert Walker Bush - Prophet Of A New World Order

Updated on August 5, 2017

The Truth About The Bush Family - In George Herbert Walker Bush's Own Words

George Herbert Walker Bush

Born on June the twelfth day of 1924, George Herbert Walker Bush grew up to become the forty first president of the United States of America. Before that, he was many things, and one of them was a very brave hero of the second world war.

George Herbert Walker Bush is the oldest surviving former president of the USA at the time of this writing, but at 88 years of age, it is only natural to not expect him to be here with us for a great many years to come. I decided to research and write what follows about George due to seeing a notification on the web concerning him recently succumbing to illness, and having to be hospitalized in Houston, Texas.

From his famous American family involving sons as governors, and a son in the White House for eight long warmongering years, to the famous 'read my lips' commentary that became a terrific joke so typical of campaign promises, and onward to his legacy for the future, we're going to take a look at George Herbert Walker Bush.

George Herbert Walker Bush At 88 Years Of Age

George Herbert Walker Bush - His Early Years

Born in Milton, Massachusetts to father Prescott Bush, and mother Dorthy Walker Bush, young George excelled in leadership positions in school, but not in Milton, the family had moved to Greenwich, Massachusetts soon after his birth.

Of course the Bush family was already tremendously wealthy. It wasn't like George attended public schools, he attended private schools, and he'd graduate from Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts in 1942. Pearl Harbor had been bombed by the Japanese the previous December, and soon, at just eighteen years of age, George Herbert Walker Bush would become the youngest Naval aviator in US history, and besides that, he'd be a very good one.

Piloting a Grumman TBN Avenger from aboard the carrier USS San Jacinto, George Herbert Walker Bush and the task force he was assigned to would rein victorious in one of the largest air battles ever seen by that date, the Battle of the Philippines Sea. Soon after the battle, George would be promoted to Lieutenant, and would show some real heroics the likes of which no current president of the USA could remotely dream of. Piloting one of four TBN Avenger aircraft, Bush and company were sent to attack Japanese forces on Chichijima. The group of four aircraft encountered heavy anti aircraft fire, and the airplane piloted by George was hit, and caught fire, and while flying a burning aircraft, George Herbert Walker Bush, with the aide of his crew,maintained his command, and completed his mission, scoring direct hits on his target.

Not all was success, however, as Bush and the crew of the TRB Avenger had to escape from the burning aircraft, not everyone's parachute opened, and only George survived. He floated in the shark infested ocean for four hours awaiting rescue, and would spend the rest of the war aiding in the rescue of pilots stranded in the ocean.

Altogether George Herbert Walker Bush would fly fifty eight combat missions in the second world war, and for this he would receive the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Presidential Unit Citation, and some additional air combat medals. Say what you will about George Herbert Walker Bush, but no US President since he administered over the nation has been even remotely as fit to lead the world's most powerful military as he.

George H.W. Bush, George Bush, and Barbara Bush


George Herbert Walker Bush, Marriage, Yale University, and Baseball

Just weeks after returning to the US from war in the pacific, George would marry his lifetime partner, Barbara Pierce, and together they would have six children. There is something to be honored in a successful marriage. Clearly George and Barbara were and are a committed couple devoted to each other and their family.

Prior to joining the war effort, George had been accepted to Yale university, and in 1945, he'd take up the offer, and attend school. He graduated in just two and one half years due to being enrolled in an accelerated program.

George was a dedicated athlete, and a superb left handed hitting first basemen. He'd play in two college world series, and even get to meet Babe Ruth during his senior year.

As for myself, I've always been a HUGE fan of Major League Baseball. I've never seen George Herbert Walker Bush in person, but I have seen George W. Bush in person, and I do mean several times. When the younger George Bush was Governor of Texas, and even before that, he was part owner of the Texas Rangers baseball franchise, and I used to see him at the old Arlington stadium. I do appreciate the interest the Bush family has always seemed to have in the sport that has always been my personal favorite. The only thing I use a television for at all, is to watch Texas Rangers baseball games.

George Herbert Walker Bush And The Brotherhood Of Death

There is George, just to the left of the grandfather clock.

Skull And Bones - The Brotherhood Of Death

Just like his father before him, George Herbert Walker Bush became a member of the Skull and Bones secret society while attending Yale university. Less than twenty years after George graduated from Yale, John Fitzgerald Kennedy would warn the world about the dangers the peoples of the United States of America would face due to secret societies.

Of course the persons who wish to not see what the rest of us see can forever state that the J.F.K. speech was entirely directed towards communism, but only a stunted historical perspective could lead one to such a conclusion, as history flows a bit more seamlessly than that, and Hegel's Dialectic reveals its structure of progression..

Skull and Bones is the exact point where I get off of the George Herbert Walker Bush fan train, this is where we part ways...long before I was ever born. You see, the age of the ego is soon to end, and nothing but nothing says EGO like a group of Ivy league super rich boys patting themselves on the backs for not earning much of anything, spending their father's money, and telling themselves they are superior to others.

Yes, George Herbert Walker Bush was a stupendous success in the second world war, and I find his deeds therein exceedingly impressive, but he was far from mature, and his personal maturity surely took a hundred steps back in the cesspool of bullshit that is the essence of ivy league egotistical liberal false logic universities.

George H.W. Bush, and Son George W. Bush


Texas, Oil, And Business

Following graduation from Yale university, George and Barbara and family moved to Western Texas to use George's father's business connections, and to become his own man. Many a millionaire has Texas oil made, and George was and is one of them.

Starting as a mere sales clerk for Dresser industries, George would go on to form two different oil companies. He drilled for oil in the Permian Basin, then would become President of the offshore drilling portion of Zapata Petroleum Corporation. He and family moved from Midland to Houston, he'd become a millionaire, and so his aspirations turned political, perhaps they'd always been so.

George Herbert Walker Bush - Political Career

Starting in 1964, George Herbert Walker Bush's eyes were on political ambitions, and who can deny this comes easily for millionaire oilmen? He'd serve as chairman of the republican party for Harris County, Texas. In 1966 George would be elected to the House of Representatives from the seventh district of Texas. Despite its general lack of popularity in George's own very wealthy Tanglewood Houston area neighborhood, George would vote for the Civil Rights Act of 1968, which pretty much disproved the earlier notion by critics that he was some sort of racist white wing supremacist.

While George H.W.Bush and his son George W. Bush will forever be remembered as warmonger Presidents, the early incarnation of George H.W.Bush as a member of congress showed a mixed bag concerning U.S. military matters. He'd support Nixon's Vietnam war policies, and then he'd vote to discontinue and abolish the draft.

In 1968 George was re-elected to the House of Representatives, and then was pressed by Richard Nixon himself to run for the Senate in 1970, but George would lose that election.

The Nixon presidency, of course, was fraught with disaster, and would end in disgrace. Richly, would Richard Nixon earn the disgrace, but Nixon did love his loyal supporters, and George H.W. Bush was rewarded with the position as Ambassador to the United Nations, a position he served in for two years. Following that, he became the Chairman of the Republican National Committee.

When Nixon had to go, and Gerald Ford ascended to the presidency, George H.W. Bush was a serious consideration for the vice presidency under Ford, but eventually lost out to Nelson Rockefeller. It has been said that Donald Rumsfeld, the White House chief of staff preferred Rockefeller, and so George's ascent was slowed a bit.

President Ronald Reagan, and Vice President George H.W. Bush


George Herbert Walker Bush - Director Of Central Intelligence, Vice President of the USA

As a proud member of the Brotherhood of Death from a liberal bullshit university such as Yale, it is no wonder George H.W. Bush would ascend to director of the nation's terrorist organization, the CIA. Since the days of operation paperclip, the Central Intelligence Agency of the USA was fraught with Nazi ideology, and was the premier terrorist organization in the entire world. Oh they'd suffered some shame in the media, but nowadays, they control the media with the iron fist of the fascist minds that fermented their growth following world war two.

Perhaps it is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. I live to do both, and I encourage any readers here to do the same thing.

Following service as director of terrorism worldwide via the Central Intelligence Agency, George Herbert Walker Bush, as you all well know, would become Vice President of the United States of America under Ronald Reagan two times, from 1981 - 1989. What a fine mess it all was, an actor, and a leader of global terrorism at the helm of the world's most powerful nation.

The times were surely turbulent, and they saw the fall of communism, the desire of fools to get free things, rather than work for things..

George did show some serious class as Vice President, when Ronald Reagan was shot, George was urged to fly to the White House via helicopter, but he refused, and insisted that only the President of the USA should land there by helicopter. This was something that showed a great deal of respect, something to be applauded.

Lost in the trivial pursuits of history is one small thing most do not know or recall. George Herbert Walker Bush, for an eight hour period of time, was acting President of the USA while under Reagan, and while Reagan was having surgery to remove polyps from his colon. The day was July 13th, 1985.

Forty First President Of The United States Of America - George Herbert Walker Bush

George Herbert Walker Bush - President Of The United States Of America, Positives and Negatives

If you want more facts and links than this page shall offer, then you should find the Wikipedia page about George. As for myself, my lot in life is to be as honest as I know how to be, and that involves ripping the propaganda into shreds, and then burning it.

George H.W. Bush was a warmonger president, and accelerated man's inhumanity towards man by ratcheting up the drug war, and the prison industrial complex. Oh sure, Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, and this we all know, we also know the United States Government only via the media trumpets injustice and military intervention abroad when there is profit to be made by major corporations. Full stop - this is just a fact, and there is no arguing it, any of it, and under George H.W. Bush the war against American citizens increased with the amoral drug war spending.

Fair, however, is fair - and George H.W. Bush wasn't entirely bad in regards to the rights any human deserves, at least he wasn't all bad here at home, and he did, in fact, sign into law the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, one of the most righteous bits of civil rights and human rights legislation in decades. For that, we must salute George.

Civil Rights regarding disabilities were not the only thing we must now tip our hats to George H.W. Bush for signing into law, George also displayed some zeal for environmentalism, and he resigned the Clean Air Act, so let it be said that we had, for a time, breathed a bit easier here at home with thanks in part to George H.W. Bush.

Definitely a mixed bag, the presidency of the elder Bush included the appointment of one Clarence Thomas as a supreme court judge, and while many African Americans surely thought this was a wonderful thing for human rights, the facts of the matter were and are that it was an absolute atrocity, a slap in the face of all humanity, as Clarence Thomas was once a lawyer for Monsanto, the single worst corporation ever to exist on the planet Earth.

Devils are forever found in details, and in especially powerful egotistical human beings, persons just like George Herbert Walker Bush, the Prophet of the New World Order, and that is his legacy.

His only legacy.

Never forget that ten years to the day before the CIA or Mossad, or both flew jet liners into the twin towers via remote control, it was George Herbert Walker Bush who'd proudly proclaim with drugged out glassy eyes, the inception of a New Word Order, and he did it from the Oval Office.

      G.H.W. Bush - probably the most wicked president the US has ever had. I believe the evidence does show he did direct the hit team on Kennedy, (possibly JFK Jr as well), he is a known devil worshiper and practicing Luciferian, and he is sold to the globalists. I would not want to stand in his shoes on Judgment Day. His trail of tears runs long and deep.

      LOL! I don't remember those things - but I was young enough when he was POTUS that I still thought that the president was always a highly respectable man who had our very best interests at heart. Wish I could still believe that today :)

      Well it has been known and even stated since the end of the second world war that the one thing that has to happen for world the USA has to be weakened rather considerably.

      The second major consideration or division is the Western world's incompatibility with Islam, which I'm sure you've noticed, is being "attended to."

      Overseas, in China, the Middle East, Russia, Indonesia and elsewhere, they're sitting back, shaking their hands and laughing their arses off as we shoot ourselves in the foot.

      Catch the video that Republican Chris Christie recorded today about the House, and the jokers on his side of the aisle? Watch it. Christie has a low BS tolerance.

      Internationally, they're either funding our debt or watching us in disbelief, sometimes both. No can could screw us like we're doing to ourselves. The rest of the world just gets to watch -- and there's your international component. Happy New Year.

      I agree! Thanks Sir!

      The spending of the moron "W" Bush and continued with Obama....just wow!

      All that money spent far far away, and all the while the USA is ...crumbling.

      I think it intentional, but folks hardly ever believe I'm right about my globalist conspiracy theory.

      Wes -- Rick's nick name is enough for lots of folks -- "Governor Good Hair" -- sorta envy him on that score anyway as his hair is "good!" I'm with you in being somewhat enamoured with the Texas Secession movement -- only problem with it would then we'd have to try to protect all four borders -- the southern one to deal with Mexican illegals and the other three with all the folks that don't like Obama trying to join us in Texas. My guess is you don't care what folks other than Texans think of Texas anyhoooooo? As to Austin -- lived and worked there many years in the music business and loved it -- don't even recognize it anymore when I visit -- including most of the music (although am a huge fan of Aaron Einhouse). Happy New Year! Best/Sis

      First, if I am on the Conspiracy Channel, this New York boy wants to get paid for it! Second Wes, we said the said thing differently: no matter one's color, political persuasion or who you sleep with... whether you like dogs or cats, whether you prefer Nascar or tennis, whether you eat burgers or sushi... we're all Americans (Texans, Louisianians, Iowans, Floridians, and yes, New Yorkers and Hawaiians!)

      Who owns Obama? Ha! That is rather simple...answer the question "Who owns the federal reserve?" There is your answer.

      Dude, I live in Texas....When I talk to people face to face....they are Texans. People have the strangest damned ideas about Texas....cracks me up.

      Cheers Ken, but you are definitely on the conspiracy channel.

    • Kenja profile image

      Ken Taub 5 years ago from Long Island, NY

      Wesman, you're missing my main points.

      It's not really about political change (the country has not changed so very much politically these last 10 and 20 years), it's about cultural and demographic changes. The make-up of the population, the acceptance of gay people (no less than the army being the first to integrate right after WW II)... the population becoming more like Texas or California, as in less than half Caucasian. Simple demographic facts (okay, not so simple if one doesn't like the racial & cultural change now upon us)...

      And what's the "liberal mass media"? Is it CNN, with contributors from both sides of the aisle? Is it neutral PBS? Is it NBC or CBS news? Is it the Wall St Journal or the NY Times? Each contain a rather wide span of opinion...

      For the decidedly more liberal MSNBC and Huffington Post there is the Drudge Report, Instapundit, Daily Caller or 25 other well-visited conservative news sites and blogs. (What, you're getting the truth from FOX? Do you even know who Roger Ailes is, and what he did before founding FOX 16, 18 years ago? You may want to check that out, since you like investigating things for yourself, which is the best way)...

      So who, exactly, owns Obama? Swiss banks or the Chinese Govt? The teacher's union or rich silver speculators? That's simply nonsense talk. He may be the Least Owned US President since Harry Truman. Even George H. W. Bush was rather beholdened to Big Oil and walked hand in hand (literally) with the Saudis, our "dear friends." As for a true moron, I thought that was Bush Jr., no?

      But hey, it's America. We're all entitled to our own lifestyles, dress, diets... and opinions.

      Here's the thing Wes about Rockefeller, Kissinger, both Bushes, JFK and his daddy, Nixon, both Clintons, and Obama -- they each have enough flaws and made enough dumb mistakes that we need not come up with grandiose conspiracy theories. Most people, inc. presidents, are simply dumb or flawed enough, all on their own.

      Have a great and successful 2013. Cheers, Ken

    • Wesman Todd Shaw profile image

      Wesman Todd Shaw 5 years ago from Kaufman, Texas

      Kenja you are only repeating memes the liberal mass media wants you to embrace as "truth." You sure aren't talking about ME, but yet you attempted to describe me. I recommend you watch a different news outlet...or preferably, no mass media news outlet whatsoever, that way, you may become more accustomed to reality.

      As for me, I think I totally get Obama...he is a globalist totally bought and paid for by international banks and corporations...which hardly makes him an intellectual. He is a Stalin like wanna be dictator, who deems American citizens not worthy of due process....hardly a commendable or admirable person...a total statist authoritarian moron, in my opinion.

    • Kenja profile image

      Ken Taub 5 years ago from Long Island, NY

      I don't know Wes, it may be sociological.

      The white rural and suburban working and middle class feels left behind, or angry about losing ground... Many people still think this a white, Christian country, and it was, and still is, by a hair, but it won't be for long, and the people in Idaho, Wyoming, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Mississippi, and 15 other states sense this, they see it really -- and they don't much like it.

      And who can blame them? Who of us likes to be replaced, surpassed, lose primacy and status, or go from the majority to something less than? No one.

      And then in comes this mulatto intellectual, born in un-white Hawaii to an African father and a globetrotting mom, he raised in Indonesia and Chicago and NYC? To them, this man is an alien, Other. And in many ways he is. They don't get him, he's not a Bush, Reagan, or Clinton. He unsettles them. Makes them suspicious.

      Above all, he dots the i and crosses the T that America, their America, is rapidly changing, and leaving their easy grasp. So they recoil, create and join these tea Parties, or militia groups, buy more guns, get themselves paranoid, fearing they know not what...

      And circle the wagons in a silly Custer-like Last Stand, as if... becoming 48% of the racial mix-up of America, that America will somehow disappear, or that they won't matter any more... or that we're becoming somehow European, or Global God forbid, or something other than baseball and apple pie.

      What happened, I think, is that a bunch of frightened white folk huddled together, hoping beyond hope that the 1980s or the 1950s would return... and of course it has not, nor can it.

      But guess what, just as the people who lived from 1880 to 1930 had to get used to a lot of literal foreigners (now known as Immigrants, or our grandparents), this group of Kansans and South Dakotins and even Alabamans will get used to a changing America, just like the south did, reluctantly, for the 100 years after 1865, and like the WASPS from the Northeast and the Midwest did with my grandparents from Russia, Poland and Austria... They adjusted, slowly but surely.

      Just take time, is all -- as Jimmy Stewart might say.

      Ken Taub 5 years ago from Long Island, NY

      Wes & Friends: I'm a pretty progressive guy (and a pragmatist). I voted for Obama, twice, and worked hard for him this time too. I took my young son to meet Bill Clinton (a smart lad who called Bush Jr. "a meathead" at the bus stop), but... we must be fair, and open minded. Richard Nixon, no lovable guy, did start the Environmental Protection Agency and opened the door to China, establishing full relations. Today, he would be considered a flaming moderate.

      Bush the Elder slapped down Saddam Hussein after his illegal invasion of Kuwait, kicked his ass in 3 weeks, and then came home. Very enlightened leadership. He was willing to compromise, to raise taxes . He was a very sensible guy. Even when I disagreed with him, I knew he was a moderate, a patriot, and a decent man. His son was the buffoon, not he.

      It's simple. Our Presidents are full-blooded human beings, just like us. They have flaws and inconsistencies, just like we do. Who was more flawed than LBJ and Clinton, and they were very effective Presidents, yes? But most do their very best. If you have not yet, see the movie Lincoln. Here was a troubled, conflicted, flawed human being, who turned out to be both quietly courageous -- and the greatest President we ever had. Sometimes, we just need perspective, and an ounce of compassion. best, Ken

      Those Nixon years were when I was at my angry worst. After both he and Agnew were booted I had a poster on the back of my entry door with their photos and the caption was "Vote for those you can Republican".

      Again another very good hub. I have seen that video, and yes he did speak of the New World Order. Many Presidents that followed him spoke of it also, but this one was the first. Thank for writing more about his history. Very interesting.

      Hi Wesman. Because of our tendencies to write either puff pieces or hit pieces--depending on our ideologies--it's difficult to write balanced hubs about major political figures. And you have succeeded here. Voted up.
