Is it just me or have you noticed all the recent poignant and touching stories in the establishment mainstream media about the Bushes, particularly Jeb Bush and his father George H. W. Bush. It seems that a full court press is on to “humanize” and create a new spin on the legacy of the Bush dynasty. For what purpose? To have Jeb appear as “the man on the white horse” come to save the Party as its legacy nominee and in the name of party unity, seize the GOP nomination from Mitt Romney who is still distrusted by the party’s base of supporters? Jeb’s most recent remarks about the need for moderation are very suspicious. Is he testing the waters for a palace coup attempt in Tampa?
Everyone should carefully study the 1940 GOP Presidential Convention and its “dark horse” nominee Wendell Willkie. The world was at war in Europe. The Republicans held an “open convention” in Philadelphia. There were two non-interventionist candidates, former president Herbert Hoover and Ohio Senator Robert Taft (Ron Paul’s mentor). Thomas Dewey of New York represented the Rockefeller forces, Senator Arthur Vandenberg of Michigan (another prominent non-interventionist who was “turned” by covert female British agents), several other lesser candidates, and Willkie (covertly chosen by Thomas W. Lamont of the House of Morgan, FDR, and by British Intelligence).
Justin Raimondo reviews the book here.
William Jasper discusses the Willkie nomination here.
Was Taft supporter Ralph E. Williams, who headed the committee on arrangements, murdered, allowing Sam Pryor of the Willkie forces to secretly get control of the convention through its credentials process? Pryor latter sabotaged Herbert Hoover’s impassioned anti-FDR, non-interventionist speech to the convention delegates by deliberately installing a defective microphone which distorted and drowned out his address. He also isssued fake duplicate tickets to the gallery to pack them with hired Willkie supporters.
Read the Mahl book, one of the most important (and revealing) I have ever read.
