THE BUSH FAMILY LINKS TO HALLIBURTON, ROOT & BROWNAND PERMINDEX.
Researchers of the JFK assassination have tried since 1963 to determine if George H.W. Bush had any
intelligence role in November 1993. Efforts to conclusively prove that George H. W. Bush was a CIA
agent at that time have been futile. Efforts to conclusively prove that he was directly involved with theCuban exiles have also been futile. This is so, despite the close proximity of the Zapata oil platform to
Cuba and the naming of boats for the Bay of Pigs invasion, notably the "Barbara." However, the
financial and corporate structures which have financed George H.W. Bush and now his son, can be
conclusively proven by documents.
The following article by Linda Minor is an analysis of these financial and corporate roots of the Bush
family political and financial fortune. Note how these roots lead to the Harrimans, British Intelligence
wing variety) and to Halliburton and Brown and Root, thus to PERMINDEX.
THE DEEP POLITICS OF THE BUSH FAMILY POLITICAL EMPIRE.by Linda Minor
Who were the clients of Brown Brothers Harriman when Prescott Bush and his wife's father, George H.
Walker, worked for them? It was these investors who funded George H.W. Walker's campaigns. His
biggest contributors were his uncle Herbie Walker, formerly of St. Louis, and Eugene Meyer, whosefather spent his entire career working for a competing investment bank--Lazard Freres--or LazardBrothers, as it was called in London.
The Bush family ties to the Lairds and Lords of Scotland and England.
Lazard Brothers was controlled by officials in the British government. It was always the investmentbank of David Rockefeller. And, besides Meyer and Walker, George Bush's other large investor in
Bush-Overbey was British Assets Trust, Ltd., an investment company whose directors interlocked with
the management of companies associated with Lord Kindersley, such as Hudson's Bay Company. The
chairman of British Assets Trust in 1956 was J.G.S. Gammell in Edinburgh, Scotland, and in 1985 by
J.C.R. Inglis, a partner in Shepherd & Wedderburn, WS, an Edinburgh law firm. Inglis was also a
director of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group, Scottish Provident Institution for Mutual Life Assurance,Edinburgh American Assets Trust and Atlantic
Assets Trust, as well as chairman of European Assets, N.V., Gammell also had served as director of
The Royal Bank of Scotland Group, as did such other notables as The Right Hon. Lord Balfour of
Burleigh, The Right Hon. Lord Clydesmuir and The Right Hon. Lord Polwarth. Polwarth, incidentally,
began serving as a director of the Halliburton Company, parent of Brown & Root, in 1974.
The Bush family continued to amass its fortune an power from the British and Scottish sources namedabove, as these sources introduced their financial tentacles into Texas, and as George H.W. Bush and
Barbara drove that old red Studebaker into Houston. Has anything changed? Do the same people runthe selection of Dick Cheney as Vice President today? Will their scion, that old Skull & Bonesman,George W. be annointed?
The PERMINDEX connection to the Bush power moves.
Paravicini Bank and Permindex
In the same year that Zapata and Pennzoil were moving toward hostile takeovers, a new Swiss bank
opened in Houston with J. Hugh Liedtke and George Bush's securities adviser, W.S. Farish III, amongthe directors. Called "Bank for Investment and Credit Berne" (BICB), its stock was owned by CapitalNational Bank and Paravicini Bank, but investors included Seagrams, Boeing, Minute Maid in Zurich,the London subsidiary of Brown and Root and the Schlesinger Organization of London andJohannesburg. These investors are more than interesting in light of the fact that Paravicini is a
descendant of the Venetian Pallavicini family, whose attorney in Rome,
Carlo d'Amelio, was the general counsel to Centro Mondiale Commerciale (CMC),
the Italian arm of Permindex. CMC was incorporated in Berne Switzerland, and D' Amelio sat on theboard of directors during the time that Seagrams' attorney, Louis Mortimer Bloomfield of Montreal,was chairman of Permindex.
When the role of CMC in the attempted assassination of President DeGaulle of France was discovered,
it fled Europe and re-
emerged in Johannesburg, South Africa. However, the parent company,Permindex, continued to be managed from Montreal by Bloomfield. Clay Shaw, the man prosecuted inNew Orleans by Jim Garrison for his role in the Kennedy assassination, was also a board member of
CMC, with which his International Trade Mart had connections.
