PressTV: Bush crime family members are pillars of US deep state: Scholar

Jeb flees forward into deeper disaster

The Bush crime family is the dirtiest bunch of corrupt politicians in the United States, and they are the pillars of the US deep state, an American scholar and political analyst says.

Dr. Kevin Barrett, a founding member of the Scientific Panel for the Investigation of 9/11, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday, after former US President George W. Bush joined Jeb Bush on the campaign trail for the first time this cycle on Monday night, arguing his brother is the best choice for “the serious job” of the presidency.

George W. Bush condemned Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump – without mentioning the billionaire businessman by name -- and went on to predict that his brother, Jeb Bush, would win the 2016 election.

“The news that Jeb Bush has finally allowed his idiot brother, W., to join him on the campaign trail is rather amusing," Dr. Barrett said.

“This happened immediately after Donald Trump had gone his furthest ever in attacking George W. Bush for not only lying about the non-existent weapons of mass destruction that were the excuse used to invade Iraq in 2003, but also Trump hinted EXPLOSIVELY at Bush being responsible for the explosive controlled demolition of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001," he added.

“He said Bush was to blame for 9/11, the World Trade Center came down under his watch, and got into a very heated exchange with Jeb Bush in the recent debate over that issue. So apparently Jeb is maybe trying to...I guess he is fleeing forward, to a more open in his relationship with his brother, W. And I think he is trying to play to the Republican base. Let’s face it, there is a minority of people in the United States who haven’t yet figured out that George W. Bush was the worst disaster ever to hit the White House," he stated.

“And those people were unhappy that Trump was attacking George W. Bush for his grotesquely failed policies in the Middle East, and of course the hint that he was involved in blowing up the World Trade Center and hitting the Pentagon with a cruise missile on September 11, 2001," the analyst noted.

“So Jeb is vaunting his relationship with W. to play to that element of the Republican base, and perhaps also to try to signal that he is not afraid of the kind of associations with his brother that Trump was highlighting in the debate. But that will not work. In fact, it will backfire in the long run even if Jeb gets a few extra votes from the extreme neocon-brainwashed element of the Republican base," he said.

“In the general election any association whatsoever with the presidency of George W. Bush will absolutely taint Jeb in a way that will make it impossible for him to be elected," the scholar observed.

“And I think that Jeb, by emphasizing his connection to W., who is really the ugly face of the Bush crime family, the one who revealed nakedly just how evil this family is...The Bush crime family has been involved in everything from supporting and propping up Adolf Hitler to murdering John F. Kennedy to engineering the coup d'etat against Nixon during Watergate. They are the pillars of the American deep state. They’re dirty dealers. They were also involved in stealing the election for the Reagan-Bush team against President Carter by keeping the hostages locked up in Iran until Reagan was inaugurated," he pointed out.

The Bush crime family is the dirtiest bunch of corrupt mafia of politicians here in the United States. They are the white collar Corleones. And I think Jeb is fleeing forward into an even bigger (political) disaster by underling his relationship with his idiot brother," Dr. Barrett concluded.
