In 1959, writer Richard Condon wrote a chilling thriller called the Manchurian Candidate. In 1962 the controversial film was released and had a brief
airing on tv. On November 22, 1963, the Democrat JFK was assassinated and his VP, LBJ took over.
Later the rights to the film reverted to Frank Sinatra and the film disappeared from view or circulation. One side saying it was just neglect, the
other side saying it was a conspiracy.
After the Democrat JFK was killed and LBJ had his time, a Republican just happened to take the white house after LBJ. Nixon then was involved in
Watergate. (Watergate Burglars broke into the Democratic Party's National Committee offices on June 17, 1972.) Apparently someone on the Republican
side had something to hide.
Fast forwarding to 2004's presidential election. The movie The Manchurian Candidate for some reason was released again. This time alluding to all
conspiracies surrounding Bush.
For those who haven't seen the film such conspiracy references are made:
Manchurian Global: Haliburton (Getting no bid contracts)
An election move to touchscreen computers, hinting fixed (2004 election)
An opponent that cannot win (Gore/minority or Kerry/young vp)
After seeing what has unfolded so far, the movie clearly was an attack on Bush. Manchurian Global is Haliburton and the pawn for them who in the
movie was the mother, is Dick Cheney.
