That's pretty funny: Obama wasn't even president, but you want to blame him for not enforcing the voting laws and prosecuting all those people who were arrested.

I say again: where is your listed of people arrested for voting illegally?

Yes, the Bushes were and are UNDERLINGS for the Rockefellers and Rothchilds.

The BAILOUTS of first, the Savings and Loans under Sr., and then, the BAILOUTS of the BANKSTERS under W. should eliminate skepticism.

Tragically, the BIG MONEY that backed Hitler's war machine was never held accountable. Now that same BIG MONEY controls the MSM, Hollywood and Acedemia.

At the latter he was a member of the first law class. He graduated from Ohio State University in 1893, and began the practice of law in Richwood, Ohio. At the turn of the century he was elected prosecuting attorney of Union County, he served in this capacity for six years.

He was elected to a second term in 1925, and a third in 1930, but he died two years into the term.

Zapata Corporation (NYSE: ZAP) is a holding company based in Rochester, New York, and originating from an oil company started by a group including the former United States president George H. W. Bush. Various writers have alleged links between the company and the United States Central Intelligence Agency. In 2009, it was renamed the Harbinger Group Inc.
In 1954, Zapata Off-Shore Company was formed as a subsidiary of Zapata Oil, with Bush as president of the new company. He raised some startup money from Eugene Meyer, publisher of the Washington Post, and his son-in-law, Phillip Graham.[3][4]
Zapata Off-Shore accepted an offer from an inventor, R. G. LeTourneau, for the development of a mobile but secure drilling rig. Zapata advanced him $400,000, which was to be refundable if the completed rig did not function. If it did function, LeTourneau would get an additional $550,000 together with 38,000 shares of Zapata Off-Shore common stock.
In 1959, Zapata Corporation split into independent companies Zapata Petroleum, headed by the Liedtkes, and Zapata Off-Shore, headed by Bush funded with $800,000.[5] Bush moved his offices and family that year from Midland, Texas to Houston.
In the late-1950s and early-1960, Zapata Off-Shore concentrated its business in the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Central American coast.[6] The U.S. government began to auction off mineral rights to these areas in 1954. In 1958, drilling contracts with the seven large U.S. oil producers included wells 40 miles (64 km) north of Isabela, Cuba, near the island Cay Sal. In January 1959, the Cuban government of Fulgencio Batista was overthrown during the Cuban Revolution. Zapata also won a contract with Kuwait.
In 1962, Bush was joined in Zapata Off-Shore by a fellow Yale Skull and Bones member, Robert Gow. By 1963, Zapata Off-Shore had four operational oil-drilling rigs—Scorpion (1956), Vinegaroon (1957), Sidewinder, and (in the Persian Gulf) Nola III.
In 1963, Zapata Petroleum merged with South Penn Oil and other companies, to become Pennzoil.
By 1964, Zapata Off-Shore had a number of subsidiaries, including: Seacat-Zapata Offshore Company (Persian Gulf), Zapata de Mexico, Zapata International Corporation, Zapata Mining Corporation, Zavala Oil Company, Zapata Overseas Corporation, and a 41% share of Amata Gas Corporation.
In 1964, Bush ran for the United States Senate, and lost; he continued as president of Zapata Off-Shore until 1966, when he sold his interest to his business partner, Robert Gow, and ran for the U.S. House of Representatives.
In 1966, William Stamps Farish III, age 28, joined the board of Zapata.

Memo from J. Edgar Hoover, referring to "Mr. George Bush of the CIA", briefed 24 hours after JFK's murderTwo Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) memoranda have been offered to show connections between the CIA and George H. W. Bush during his time at Zapata.
The first memo, written by FBI Special Agent Graham Kitchel on 22 November 1963, names Zapata Off-Shore regarding the John F. Kennedy assassination at 12:30 p.m. CST that day. It begins: "At 1:45 p.m. Mr. GEORGE H. W.

The company traces its origins to Zapata Oil, founded in 1953 by future-U.S. President George H. W. Bush, along with his business partners John Overbey, Hugh Liedtke, Bill Liedtke, and Thomas J. Devine. Bush and Thomas J. Devine were oil-wildcatting associates.[1] Their joint activities culminated in the establishment of Zapata Oil.[1] The initial $1 million investment for Zapata was provided by the Liedtke brothers and their circle of investors, by Bush's father and maternal grandfather—Prescott Bush and George Herbert Walker, and his family circle of friends. Hugh Liedtke was named president, Bush was vice president; Overbey soon left.

Two Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) memoranda have been offered to show connections between the CIA and George H. W. Bush during his time at Zapata.

The first memo, written by FBI Special Agent Graham Kitchel on 22 November 1963, names Zapata Off-Shore regarding the John F. Kennedy assassination at 12:30 p.m. CST that day. It begins: "At 1:45 p.m. Mr. GEORGE H. W. BUSH, President of the Zapata Off-Shore Drilling Company, Houston, Texas, residence 5525 Briar, Houston, telephonically furnished the following information to writer... BUSH stated that he wanted to be kept confidential... was proceeding to Dallas, Texas, would remain in the Sheraton-Dallas Hotel."

A second FBI memorandum, written by J. Edgar Hoover, identifies "George Bush" with the CIA. It is dated 29 November 1963 and refers to a briefing given to Bush on 23 November. The FBI Director describes a briefing about JFK's murder "orally furnished to Mr. George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency...[by] this Bureau" on "December 20, 1963. When this second memorandum surfaced during the 1988 presidential campaign, Bush spokespersons (including Stephen Hart) said Hoover's memo referred to another George Bush who worked for the CIA.[7] CIA spokeswoman Sharron Basso suggested it was referring to a George William Bush. However, others described this G. William Bush as a "lowly researcher" and "coast and beach analyst" who worked only with documents and photos at the CIA in Virginia from September 1963 to February 1964, with a low rank of GS-5.[8][9][10] Moreover, this G. William Bush swore an affidavit in federal court denying that Hoover's memo referred to him:

General Electric is in the Rockefeller GLOBALIST loop and since they, the GLOBALISTS, were the ones that green-lighted Obama over Hillary, the least he can do is give a tax break on the 14 BILLION profit General Electric made, ha ha. ZERO FEDERAL TAX!

What an Uncle Tom he is.

The March 27, 2011 edition of CBS 60 Minutes had a segment on US corporations pretending to move their headquarters to other countries to avoid US taxes. The 60 Minutes story repeatedly referred to the US corporation tax rate being 35%, and said this was higher than most other countries. This was somewhat misleading as 35% is not "the" tax rate, but the top bracket. And many corporations staying in the US use tricks to pay much less. The 60 Minutes story was broadcast shortly after the New York Times reported that during the last 5 years GE has reported $26 billion in US profits, paid no taxes and claimed the government owes it $4.1 billion tax credits during those 5 years. There was an announcement in Washington listing 10 US corporations paying little or no taxes this year. Forbes magazine also had an interesting article last year which included US corporation that paid little or no taxes. The corporations that pretend to leave the US aren't doing so to pay the same tax rate as you and me - they're going to places with corporate tax rates of 12%. They want to pay less than regular Americans.
Yes, the trick they used was setting up their headquarters overseas and then putting a meaningless skeleton crew in charge, while the main operation stayed in the states.

RIP Herman Cain
Chasing poosay was his bane
Rubbing them against the grain
And last but not least
Total absence of a political brain
