•George W. Bush/Torture Indictment|
The 43rd US President, a bonesman, former oil businessman, now being pursued for war crimes.
George Walker Bush, the 43rd president of the USA, son of the 41st U.S. president, George H. W. Bush. He is brother of Jeb Bush, former Governor of Florida. He was Governor of Texas from January 17, 1995 – December 21, 2000.
George Bush Jr. is son of a lifelong intelligence operative, George (H. W.) Bush Sr. He was sent to Yale university where he like his father and grandfather he became a member of the Skull and Bones society. He went to Harvard Business school, but showed little aptitude for business. This did not stop him following the pattern set by his father, of using business as a cover for other activities.
September the 11th, 2001
Although US President at the time of the attacks and although he used the event as an excuse for a lot of blustering later on, George W. Bush appears not to been deliberately sidelined during the 9-11 event, notwithstanding the suggestions (for example, by Mark Gorton) that 9/11 was planned by his father). George W. was in a primary school in Florida when the events occurred, and after being informed that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center, "he does not even turns his head, it is obvious he knew what was up, if he were really surprised his first reaction would have been to look in the eyes of the person whispering to him". Bush continued to read a story about a goat to the class of primary children, reportedly because he didn't want to upset them. The US Secret Service also apparently saw no problem with leaving him where he was, strongly suggesting that they did not perceive the events of that day as a threat. Bush appears therefore to have been kept out of the way and out of the loop by his handlers.
His popularity, extremely low before the 9/11, rose dramatically in its aftermath.
War Crimes Indictment

Bush was found guilty of war crimes, including the authorisation of torture, which is illegal under the United Nations Convention Against Torture which the USA has ratified. Former UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, Manfred Nowak has given expert opinion that Bush has no immunity as a former head of state. US attorney Vincent Bugliosi, forcefully argued in his 2008 book, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder that since Bush intentionally misled Congress and the US population about the reasons for invading Iraq, under the felony-murder rule the deaths of over 4,000 American soldiers and 100,000 Iraqi civilians amount at the very least to second-degree murder. Bugliosi has argued for Bush's impeachment and offered to work with any US State's Attorney General interested in pursuing the prosecution.
Bush was tried in absentia and convicted by the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission both for crimes against peace and conspiracy to commit war crimes, specifically torture, after the Iraq War and torture carried out at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay. No sentence was pronounced, but the tribunal referred their findings to the chief prosecutor at the International Court of Justice in the Hague.
2004 US Presidential Election
Since 2009, Bush has received a total in excess of $15 million for giving speeches, sometimes for as much as $200,000 each.

|Why Isn’t Everyone In Favour of Taxing Financial Speculation?||report||19 April 2016||Robert Reich||Bernie Sanders wants to tax stock trades at a rate of 0.5 percent (a trade of $1,000 would cost $5), and bond trades at 0.1 percent. The tax would reduce incentives for high-speed trading, insider deal-making, and short-term financial betting. Sanders’ 0.5 percent tax could thereby finance public investments that enlarge the economic pie rather than merely rearrange its slices – like tuition-free public education.|
