'Bush-Nazi' journalist explains his improbable
GOP Presidential run to "stop Bush"
Buchanan is the investigative reporter who went
to The National Archives and Library of Congress
in September 2003 to confirm the existence of
U.S. government documents that prove the 27 years
of Bush family Nazi collaboration via German industrialist
Fritz Thyssen. Mr. Buchanan's work first appeared
in The New Hampshire Gazette, founded in 1756
and the oldest newspaper in America, beginning
October 10. It has since been reported on six
continents via Associated Press, major world newspapers,
and more than 100 Web sites.
a result of his recent work, Mr. Buchanan has
been drafted to run for President of the United
States, head-on against George W. Bush as a Republican,
by John McConnell, the 88-year-old founder of
Earth Day and The Minute for Peace (1963), whose
friends have included 39 Nobel laureates and UN
Secretary General U Thant. "Mr. Buchanan has the
kind of courage and conviction that can really
change the world," says Mr. McConnell. "He has
a real vision, based on new ideas that deserve
Buchanan, 53 and a native of Virginia, is on the
ballot for the January 27 New Hampshire Republican
primary. He says he expects to be on the ballot
in at many as a dozen states, including California
and Florida in early March. More information is
available at www.johnbuchanan.org.
qualifies you to run for President?
a respected and nationally published journalist,
with 33 years of experience in the biggest media
markets in the country, covering politics, government,
business, the arts - you name it. A reporter's
job is to sort out the facts and report the truth.
That gives you a unique sort of qualification,
I think. My only goal, which half the U.S. population
shares, is to get rid of Bush as soon as possible,
preferably during the primaries.
facts or truth are you running on?
on what I discovered in reporting the "Bush-Nazi"
stories - that war profiteering, plain and simple,
has been an elite secret society within U.S. economy
for a century and that members of the Bush family
have been right in the middle of it the whole
time - I have come to the realization that much
of America's post-Cold War foreign policy is based
on the greed of the military-industrial complex,
not the best interests of the people or the world.
Iraq is the perfect example.
entire run-up to war was based on lies, disinformation
and propaganda, not just from Bush but from every
senior member of his administration. Vice President
Cheney twisted the arm of the CIA to an unprecedented
extent to get the "intelligence" he wanted, in
order to justify a bogus invasion that toppled
a UN-recognized government and cost more than
400 American lives, as well as thousands of civilian
lives. It was done to satisfy the business interests
of the neo-con hawks - and secret Bush family
defense industry interests like The Carlyle Group,
Engineered Support Systems and BioPort, to name
your solution to the Iraq situation?
will bring the troops home within one year - period.
I'll turn the job of reconstructing Iraq over
to the UN, the World Bank, the IMF and the people
of Iraq. The country will join the long list of
developing nations. It's up to Iraqis to progress
in the name of democracy and commerce. They have
do you propose to stop war profiteering?
you have to make it illegal for any former government
official or Washington insider to work as a paid
"consultant" to a for-profit defense contractor,
whose sole responsibility should be the national
security of the United States. Those relationships
prompt terrible conflicts of interest - the situation
with Saudi Arabia and Daddy Bush, via Carlyle
Group being a classic and dangerous current example.
Arabia is the #1 supporter of state-sanctioned
terrorism, via the royal family and their highest
ranking supporters. Saudi Arabia has been a supporter
of Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda since its inception.
Andrea Mitchell reported on NBC News in early
September that the Saudis met face to face with
bin Laden before and after 9/11 and that they
paid money to some of the 9/11 hijackers and paid
protection money to Al Qaeda.
has the White House never spoken out about that?
Why has Bush not demanded that the Saudis stop
their support of Wahabbi-based terror? The answer
is that the Bush family has profited enormously
from its unknown and unreported relationship with
the Saudis and the bin Ladens for 20 years. It's
fact. It can be confirmed with documentation.
But nobody in the "mainstream" press will touch
else would you end war profiteering?
has to be complete "transparency" in the defense
contracting and aerospace industries. In instances
where the relevant information must be classified,
I would have a Congressional subcommittee in each
house of Congress oversee all defense and aerospace
contracts and contractors, then have their reports
audited by the GAO before being released to the
public semi-annually and annually. The people
have a right to know where their tax dollars are
going and why.
say you have a plan for getting corporate interests
out of politics. How will you do that?
one, make it illegal for corporations and business
entities to contribute to candidates or political
parties. Number two, ban political action committees
(PACs). Number three, outlaw professional lobbying.
If you want to lobby, you can buy your own ticket
and sit on Capitol Hill on your own time to tell
your representatives what you want. It shouldn't
be done by billion dollar corporations. People
shouldn't earn a million dollars a year doing
lobbying a free speech issue?
not. That's a myth spun by the corporations. Corporations
have no Constitutional rights. They are artificial
entities, created by public charter, at the will
of the people. Only people have rights. Now we
need to exercise those rights to return government
to the people - take it back from the corporations
and global special interests.
you really think Republicans will vote for you
in the primaries?
find out in New Hampshire, I guess. That's our
"do or die" state. It also happens to be our first
state. I'm just going up there and talking to
people and telling the truth, the whole truth
and nothing but the truth, as a journalist. That's
all I can do. I have to trust destiny - and the
Internet. No matter what, I had a living legend
who knew Edward Teller and Margaret Mead ask me
to run for President. To a freelance journalist,
that in itself is a major victory if you ask me.
I have nothing to lose. And I just might win.
In 1976, there was this unknown peanut farmer
from Georgia who went to New Hampshire. His name
was Jimmy Carter.
you think you really have anything in common with
were both once unknowns. It remains to be seen
whether I stay unknown.
