Bush 3.0: Pax Americana
Jenna Bush, 24-year-old party girl. Not talked much, but she is now at some undisclosed country "south of the border". Before giving her part on Jorge's Latino Outreach Program, she was hired year and a half ago in DC teaching bilingual education to a bunch of third graders at Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School.
But one will have to speculate what were her reasons are for going South of the Border -
Times must be tough for Jenna if she left the country to seek employment as a teacher.
Or maybe she left because she did not like the overwhelming amount of paperwork and the constant testing required by her father's "No Child Left Behind" policy.
Of course, what was I thinking; she is just following in the footsteps of Uncle Jeb who also went Mexico to teach. While he was in high school, back in 1971, Jeb went to León, Mexico to teach English for an exchange program for Phillips Academy.
It was in León, Guanajuato, México where young Jeb met his mestiza mami that captured his heart, Columba Garnica Gallo. Columba Bush was born in the State of Guanajato, Mexico, in the city of León de los Aldamas (León for short) in 1953. It is often believed she grew up in Leon and Guanajuato, but it was not until in 2001 when Manuel Carrillo reported that her family grew up in Arperos, a small rural community outside of city of Silao.
En su reportaje titulado La Familia de George W. Bush en Guanajuato, dado a conocer en 2001, el periodista Manuel Carrillo investigó otros datos en Arperos, comunidad rural situada a 40 kilómetros de la zona urbana del municipio de Silao, de donde es originaria la familia de Columba. Señala: "Todavía hace algunos años aquí - vivía gran parte de la familia Garnica, ahora, casi todos emigraron a los Estados Unidos, León (la principal ciudad de Guanajuato), o la cabecera municipal de Silao".It is generally assumed that Uncle Jeb converted to Catholicism to marry his Mexican mama, not accurate. After his first lost for Governor of Florida in 1994, it was then he made the full conversion, to "help save his family."
The marriage does have the Nativist worried because they feel Jebby's three "little brown ones" is helping in Mexico's reconquista effort.
The three "little brown ones"
George P. - The Republican's "Ricky Martin," this Latin hottie made a splash with Republicans and Latinos at the GOP National Convention. However, to the Nativist, they clearly appear threaten by this Latin hottie, in fact, they strongly believe "P." Bush will continue Bush dynasty.
At only 27 years old, George P. is too young under the Constitution to become the 44th President. But he could be ready to run in another 20 years or so, by which time his uncle's policy of "electing a new people" has altered the voting population in ways favorable to him.In 2004, George P. married his gringa girlfriend Amanda Williams in Maine. Sorry ladies, he is taken. Bush used to work in Dallas for the law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld.
Before Amanda, he was not a big hit with his ex-girlfriend's immediate family after he broke into their house and drove circles in their front yard with his car during a fit of rage.
On December 31, 1994, George P. Bush, ... dropped by the Miami home of a former girlfriend. It was four in the morning and apparently he had not been invited. He broke into the house and began arguing with the woman's father. He then departed. But 15 to 20 minutes later, Bush, a Rice University student, was back. This time he drove his Ford Explorer over the front lawn, causing damage. The father contacted the police, and a Miami-Dade police officer called on George P. and his parents that night. But as the subsequent police report noted, George P. "was not arrested on the scene" because the woman's father did not want to press charges. The report also said that George P. and this woman broke up a year and a half earlier and that Bush "has been a problem ever since."Noelle Bush - like her elder brother, P, Noelle has appeared in newspapers across the nation, but, unlike her hermano, it is for all the wrong reasons. Between 1999 and 2001, it was previously reported that Noelle would become belligerent after one of the four car wrecks she got into. She may also have been arrested for shoplifting in Arizona. In 2002, she was arrested again for prescription fraud, and it was reported that Jeb Bush covered up three other prescription fraud incidents. On September 9, 2002, Orlando Police received an anonymous call from within the Center for Drug-Free Living, where Noelle Bush resided. The transcript reads:
"One of the women here was caught buying crack cocaine tonight. And a lot of the women are upset because she's been caught about five times. And we want something done because our children are here, and they just keep letting it slip under the counter and carpet... She does this all the time and she gets out of it because she's the governor's daughter. But we're sick of it here 'cause we have to do what's right, but she gets treated like some kind of princess. And everybody's tired of it, you know. We're just trying to get our lives together, and this girl's bringing drugs on property."Then on October 17, 2002, Noelle was sentenced to ten days in Orange County jail for contempt, because of the crack cocaine. I don't think she will be into politics any time soon. However, it did not stop Jorge.
Jebby Bush - A month before the 2000 election he was caught humping in the parking lot of the Tallahassee Mall by security guards with a 17-year-old female in a Jeep Cherokee. She was butt naked and Jebby was wearing nothing but his socks. The officer arrived to investigate the scene for a possible crime of "sexual misconduct." The police report states: "I became aware of the political ties" of the suspect. He then "contacted the watch commander...to inform him of the incident." After one of the security guards talked to Jebby's father, the guard told the officer that the preliminary report would be pulled. The cop replied that he would still have to complete an incident report. Luck for Jebby, nothing happened.
However, according to Artie Brown, one of the two guards, Jebby spoke to his father and firmly stated, "My dad will fix it."
But Sergeant Oscar Brannon, who filed the report, said charges were not pursued because the lustful couple had not been in public view. Brown, though, contradicted that assessment. And in his report, Brannon did note that shortly after he arrived at the parking lot, "I became aware of the political ties" of the male suspect.Then in September 2005, Jebby was arrested again This time by Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission agents on Sixth Street in Austin, TX, his bail was set at $2,500, and was later released that night "on his own recognizance." The affidavit from the resisting arrest said Bush continually pushed against a TABC officer who was trying to handcuff him. "Subject further resisted by pushing back with his body as he was restrained at the [Austin PD] transport van," it said.
TABC Capt. David Ferrero told reporters Bush had approached a group of TABC and Austin police officers and asked about an earlier arrest of the people he knew were also intoxicated. Agents did not know his identity until after they had arrested him and looked at his driver's license, which was issued in Florida.
"He was observed to be a danger to himself and others," Ferrero said. Code talk for Jebby received the VIP treatment.
It was also reported that young Jebby received a cut on the chin. He was later treated at a local hospital. Unlike his relative, Jenna, Jebby paid a $2,500 fine and was not required to appear in court.
Back to Jenna and Jorge W. Bush's Latino Outreach Program, there are some feel this is a Bush move to continue to Hispanicization of the US.
"So the decades-long Bush family project to bond with Latin America has not brought, and so far as I can see is not likely to bring, any political advantage to the GOP. It's a strange thing. Anyone got explanations?"Truthfully, this dominant view has been around for a long time and its ideologies are based on embodied by the philosophies of Providence and Manifest Destiny. Some will consider this just talk of conspiracy theories, yet, the corroborating evidence is right under many people's nose. The philosophies behind the Manifest Destiny aren't restricted to history. The idea of continuing to take over the Western Hemisphere is written in the neoconservative document: "The New American Century," the plan to continue the Reaganite muscular approach to protect American power and "moral clarity" in a post-Cold War world. The prime targets can be clearly recognized in their official report issued in September 2000 by the Project for the New American Century [PDF: Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century].
Tom Barry, policy director of International Relations Center, wrote:
In his first months in the White House, President Bush repeatedly promised that he would work to make this the "Century of the Americas," but after September 11, 2001, the president left behind his neighborly focus. Instead, his new vision evoked a global Pax Americana--the type of U.S. hegemony historically exercised in the Western Hemisphere would be extended to the entire globe.Yet, consistently standing in the so-called path are the little brown and black folk.
The president's grand new strategy of U.S. foreign and military policy envisions a world in which U.S. politics, culture, and economics are the coin of the realm, and where there are no existing or potential threats to U.S. supremacy. Conjured up by a small circle of neoconservatives in the early 1990s, this dream of a global imperium draws heavily on the U.S. experience in asserting its power in Latin America and the Caribbean.
What other way can a family continue their political dynasty when most of their family have decided not follow their path? There is a strong need breed the next generation of Bushista leaders after "P" Bush is done.
If so, what about her long time relationship with former Karl Rove lackey Henry Hager who is about in enter grad school to get a MBA at U-Va.'s Darden School? (at least this fellow received his BA, unlike her ex-boyfriend, Blake Gottesmans, who has no college degree who but is now starting classes at Harvard Business School.) According to the Washington Post article, "They'll try to keep their love alive across the Americas." I guess the answer is no, she is single again.
America's "New American Century" lives on. Viva los Bushes!
