THE BUSH FAMILY LINKS TO HALLIBURTON
SOME SHOCKING INFORMTION IN THIS DATA DUMP:
THE BUSH FAMILY LINKS TO HALLIBURTON, ROOT & BROWN AND
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 the Cuban 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 (right-wing variety) and to Halliburton and
Brown and Root, thus to PERMINDEX.
THE DEEP POLITICS OF THE BUSH FAMILY POLITICAL EMPIRE.
by Linda Minor © 2000
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, whose father spent his entire career
working for a competing investment bank--Lazard Freres--or Lazard
Brothers, as it was called in London.
The Bush family ties to the Lairds and Lords of Scotland and
Lazard Brothers was controlled by officials in the British
government. It was always the investment bank 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 named above, 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 run the 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,
among the directors. Called "Bank for Investment and Credit Berne"
(BICB), its stock was owned by Capital National 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 and Johannesburg. These investors are more
than interesting in light of the fact that Paravicini is a
descendant of the Venetian Pallavicini family, whose attorney in
Carlo d'Amelio, was the general counsel to Centro Mondiale
the Italian arm of Permindex. CMC was incorporated in Berne
Switzerland, and D' Amelio sat on the board 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 in New 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.
According to a 1970 report called "The Torbitt Document," (Click to
read the entire document), William Torbitt, states: "...a
compilation of information gathered by a Texas attorney from
"court-approved and documented evidence" from sources in the U.S.
Customs Department and the Narcotics Bureau, from the Warren
Commission and the Garrison investigations, Bloomfield's Permindex
Corp. supervised five subsidiary groups:
(1) "White Russian" organization called the Solidarists--members
Ferenc Nagy of Dallas (former Hungarian premier) and Jean De Menil
of Houston (head of Schlumberger); (Click to read about
Schlumberger, David Atlee Philips, Clay Shaw and the CIA.)
(2) American Council of Churches--H.L. Hunt organization;
(3) Free Cuba Committee--Carlos Prio Soccaras (Cuban
(4) "The Syndicate"--Clifford Jones and Bobby Baker working with
Joe Bonanno Mafia family;
(5) NASA's Security Division--Werner Von Braun, headquarters in
Redstone Arsenal in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and on East Broad Street
in Columbus, Ohio.
The Kennedy assassination was planned and carried out by Division
Five of the FBI, which acted in conjunction with the Defense
Intelligence Agency under the control of the Joint Chiefs. These
divisions had a highly secret police agency called the Defense
Industrial Security Command, which also worked with NASA, the
Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), USIA and weapons and ammunition
supply corporations (munitions makers) which contract with those
agencies. The police force originated in the 1930's to work for the
Tennessee Valley Authority, then expanded to the AEC, tying it in
with army intelligence. Agents of this force included Clay Shaw,
Guy Bannister, David Ferrie, Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby and
others, and was headed up by Bloomfield.
According to the Torbitt report:
The principal financiers of Permindex were a number of U.S. oil
companies, H.L. Hunt, Clint Murchison, John De Menil, Solidarist
director of Houston, John Connally, as executor of Sid Richardson
estate, Haliburton [sic] Oil Co., Sen. Robert Kerr of Okla., Troy
Post of Dallas, Lloyd Cobb of New Orleans, Dr. Oechner of New
Orleans, George and Herman Brown of Brown & Root, Attorney Roy
M. Cohn, Chairman of the Board for Lionel Corp., New York City,
Schenley Industries of New York City, Walter Dornberger, ex-Nazi
general and his company, Bell Aerospace, Pan American World Airways
and its subsidiary, Intercontinental Hotel Corp., Paul Raigorodsky
Claiborne Oil of New Orleans, Credit Suisse of Canada, and
Heineken's Brewery of
Canada and a host of other munitions makers and NASA contractors
the Defense Industrial Security Command.
PERMINDEX AND SEAGRAMS USED THE SAME INVESTORS THE BUSH FAMILY
Roy Cohn was a very close friend of Lewis Rosenstiel, who was in
turn a friend of Sam Bronfman. Bloomfield was also president of
Heineken of Canada. What these companies seem to have in common is
their shareholders, directors and financiers. They are the same
persons who invested in Bush-Overbey, Zapata and Dresser Industries
through the investment trusts they controlled. The 1992 edition of
Dope, Inc. (a LaRouche publication) has this to say about the banks
Both Seagram's (and its old Prohibition rum-running partner,
Hudson's Bay) are interlocked through a maze of contacts with all
five of the big Canadian chartered banks: the Bank of Montreal, the
Royal Bank of Canada, the Bank of Nova Scotia, the Toronto Dominion
Bank, and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. Thus, the dirty
money gleaned from the drug trade is conduited through these banks
to points further south: The banks' offshore centers in the
Caribbean, and from there the money makes its whirlpool round of
The chairman of this Houston-based international investment bank,
BICB, whose investors included Seagrams and the Schlesinger mining
interests in South Africa, was Johan F. (Fred) Paravicini.
Vice-chairman was L.F. McCollum, Sr.-a long-time Humble Oil
employee, who headed Conoco and founded Capital National Bank of
Houston in 1965. The bank's president was Baker Lovett, cousin of
James A. Baker III, and grandson of the first president of Rice
University, Odell Lovett, a friend of Woodrow Wilson at
In an interview with the Houston Post, Baker stated that his
experience of 15 years in banking indicated that Houston had a
relatively short supply of money, and that venture capital had to
come from New England-from "more mature economies." He believed a
bank "should dedicate a portion of its resources to relatively
risky situations because it's those which sometimes really pay
off." As the 1980s showed, however, it was also that type of
investment that resulted in the bailout of the savings and loan
In addition to its investment in the BICB set up by Conoco's
chairman, Seagrams also owned a great deal of stock in Conoco and
caused a major eruption with DuPont in 1981 over who would control
the company. Seagrams was interested in Conoco because it owned a
53% interest in Hudson's Bay Oil and Gas Co. in Canada. Since it
had recently received $2.3 billion cash profit from the sale of
Sunoco stock, with which it had tried and failed to purchase
control of DuPont's St. Joe Minerals, the Scottish-financed liquor
barons at Seagrams saw another chance to grab something prized by
the New Englanders-control of Conoco.
In 1969 W.S. Farish III was 31 years old and was a partner in the
investment companies of Underwood Neuhaus and W.S. Farish &
Co., through which he handled millions of dollars of his family's
wealth in addition to George Bush's blind trust. Farish was also
serving as president of a company called Fluorex, an international
mineral and exploration company, and in 1973 also became a director
of Houston Natural Gas. He was the only grandson of one of the
founders of Humble Oil, W.S. Farish, Sr., who had been chairman of
Standard Oil of New Jersey prior to World War II. W.A. Harriman
& Co. helped Jersey Standard finance a merger with I.G.
the German chemical corporation which manufactured the gas used to
so many Jews.
Lehman Brothers, which had an office in Capital National Bank's
building at 1300 Main-on the same floor, incidentally, as George
Bush's friend (and later, Commerce Secretary, Robert Mosbacher),
was represented on the board of the Capital National and its
international investment branch. One director was Lehman Brothers
partner, John B. Carter, Jr., and another was director I.H. "Denny"
Kempner III, heir to the Imperial Sugar fortune, whose brother was
a Lehman representative in Houston.
The Kempner brothers' mother was Mary Carroll Kempner, a
W.T. Carter and sister of W.T. Carter, Jr., whose wife was Lillie
Neuhaus, making them first cousins of Victor J. Carter. Lillie was
a niece of C.L. Neuhaus and W. Oscar Neuhaus, the founders of
Neuhaus & Co. (later Underwood Neuhaus). Oscar's son, Hugo,
married Kate Rice, Libbie Farish's cousin, and after W.S. and
Libbie's son died in 1943, their daughter-in-law, Mary Wood Farish,
married Kate Neuhaus' son. The Oscar Neuhaus who became trustee for
the wealthy Cullen family and secretary of a joint venture between
Dresser and Cullen interests, was a key member of the
Neuhaus/Farish banking interests-which thus had control of
Cullen/Dresser real estate matters in downtown Houston. This
relationship resulted in the construction of a
complex of office buildings in the southwest part of downtown
leased to Dresser, Cullen/Frost Bank, Enron, Oppenheimer & Co.
and assorted other interesting companies. The Carter family also
were investment bankers in Houston.
Still another director of Capital Bank was Bill Barziza, a
descendant of Decimus et Ultimus Barziza, founder of Houston Land
& Trust, which has since merged into First International Bank.
This ancestor was the son of a Venetian count and French-Canadian
mother, born in Williamsburg, Virginia, who, during the Civil War,
had been captured at Gettysburg and smuggled through the
Confederate underground to Canada where he was returned to Houston
via the blockade route through Bermuda.
The decision to form a partnership with Paravicini may have also
been influenced by another Lehman representative-William Mellon
Hitchcock--grandson of William Larimer Mellon, founder of Gulf Oil,
and nephew of banker Andrew Mellon. Bush's partners in Zapata were
the sons of William Liedtke, Sr.-one of the "highest ranking
lawyers in Gulf Oil Corp."
Billy Mellon Hitchcock worked from 1961 to 1967 for "his father's
mentor," Bobby Lehman of Lehman Brothers in Manhattan. Fred
Paravicini began an illegal trading relationship with Billy in
1965, for which they were not indicted until 1973-Hitchcock in
February and Paravicini in June. Hitchcock pled guilty in April. He
then appears to have disappeared from sight.
What Hitchcock shows us is a classic fondi member, educated at
Harvard, trained at Lazard Brothers during Lord Cowdray's tenure,
who while vacationing in Venice, is recruited to work for
CIA-connected investment bank with connections to the Bronfman
family by a member of his father's polo team! How did he manage to
get caught? These people never get caught.
But what was never followed up on was how Hitchcock and Paravicini
were connected to Conoco, Seagrams, Standard Oil, Brown & Root
and the Schlesinger mines in Johannesburg. These connections lead
straight to Permindex, the Bronfmans and to the Dallas oil men
funding the JFK assassination. They also lead to George Bush
through W.S. Farish-investor of his blind trust.
The Pearson Group and Texas oil men.
Although it has never been proven that Farish, Liedtke or George
Bush had any background in intelligence operations before Bush was
appointed director of the CIA by Gerald Ford in 1976, an inference
can be made just by reviewing the associations that existed in the
Texas oil community in the 1960s. Billy's training as an investment
banker had taken place at the English branch of Lazard Freres,
which has been shown to be closely tied to one of George Bush's
original investors, Eugene Meyer, and to Everett DeGolyer, a
Dresser director who had spent most of his career working for Sir
Weetman Pearson (Viscount Cowdray). DeGolyer left his job at
Amerada Petroleum in New York and moved to Dallas where he
established a geological consulting firm called DeGolyer and
MacNaughton and served from 1954 until his death in 1956 on the
board of Dresser Industries in Dallas. He was replaced on the board
by his partner, Lewis W. MacNaughton, who remained until 1969.
Lewis MacNaughton was also a director of Empire Trust, a company
whose largest single holding of stock was comprised of Loeb-Lehman,
Bache and Bronfman holdings, in which Edgar Bronfman became a
director in 1963.
Bronfman, Sr. married the daughter of John L. Loeb (Loeb, Rhoades),
who was himself married to a Lehman. A vice-president of Empire
Trust in Dallas was Jack Crichton (also president of Nafco Oil
& Gas, Inc.) who was connected with Army Reserve Intelligence.
