Forgive me if this is not the best place to put this posting.

It is no surprise to members here the strong ties that the Jewish community have to the white house.

But there is evidence that Jewish people by the name of Bush paid a significant role in the military and geopolitical history of the US.

Scroll down this page to find commentary on this subject:

"We attempted to research the genealogy ourselves, to determine if there is any relation to the current President and the Major George Bush mentioned in the document. It appears that the Bush family genealogy records are missing from the public domain. Any further insight from readers would be appreciated. If there is a connection, perhaps it would help explain the below author's observations, from the NYC Jewish newspaper, the Forward:"

Wow...I guess this would clear up why Bush wasn't at the collapse of the World Trade Centers!

Remind you of anything? This maybe: The Claim by the Nazis that Franklin Roosevelt was Jewish? That his "real" name was "Rosenfeld":
"America, Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Holocaust"

Oh yeah baby....I'll get back to this one.

Barbara Bush's maiden name is "Pierce".
Autobiography here:

"Barbara Pierce Bush"

Seeing no Jewish ancestry yet but will look into here family next.

Welp, I would shot for "Czech" before I went for Jewish:
Pretty good family breakdown right there (goes back a long ways...1650 to be exact):

"The Czech Roots of Barbara Pierce Bush"

Well I understand that Jewish ancestory is traced via the female side of a family line but the assumption here is that it comes from the male side.

Whether true of not I have no idea but it is intruiging that several men by the name of Bush were involved in the military and seemingly had clout in past american affairs. A good co-incidence at the very least.

NEO, I hope you didn't think I was blowing you off cause I certainly wasn't.

Lets do a 'search' on Bush, the male side lineage then?
I'll start digging.

It is common in gentile culture to focus on lineage mostly from the males side of the family. But of course both sides matter greatly.

For example George Bush's wife comes from the same clan that my father's family does in Ireland.

I also find it interesting that current Democratic front runner Kerry is a bonesman and has strong Jewish roots in his background yet for all intents and purposes appears as a gentile.

I will do a bit of digging too and see what I can find out here.

I had a good look at your links Seeker and while everything looks as it would be expected it does not really prove anything. Names can be changed and unless one sees actual census and other records there is often a lot of recollecting going on in geneology. The reality is that any of those people are potentially Jewish. What struck me most was the mention in the Jewish date books of a family by the name of Bush being Jewish, this is new to me. Bush is an English name which was likely taken up by Jews in England at some time in the past.

Still I am interested in what the initial originators of this idea meant by saying:

--It appears that the Bush family genealogy records are missing from the public domain.--

And German, though being German and Jewish are NOT mutually exclusive.

Alot of Busch's became Bush's in America during immigration.

posted on Feb, 7 2004 @ 08:01 PM

good points, we didn't even touch on that angle.

posted on Feb, 7 2004 @ 11:04 PM
NEO and Rant, though I agree that "names" can change, is there any particular proof or evidences to suggest that this is indeed what has happened or has occured? Some of those links give lineage going back to the 1500's. In such, I have yet to see a or any link(s) or books or whatever suggesting that the 'BUSH' name was changed from its original.

Bush might be Jewish???? (G*d helps us all.....) I'm a pretty active Jew, and I don't know one Jew who supports Bush.

posted on Feb, 8 2004 @ 12:20 AM
On a light note, he certainly does see god in an old-testament sort of style, you know, what with the wars.

But apart from that are these:

1) Wasn't there extensive evidence that Bush's grandfather was a Nazi sympathizer? If so, then perhaps Bush or his father overcame a very strong hatred against the Jewish people and married into being Jewish, or at least breaking down old walls.

2) I have a few Jewish relatives. That doesn't make me Jewish. So what if every Bush that ever lived before George W. was a Jew, for one thing we shouldn't care what his religion is, and for another it means nothing about what religion he has chosen. If he goes to church, believes Jesus was the Messiah, and has never uttered the word 'Shalom', then he's probably Christian. I just don't see what difference it should make.

posted on Feb, 8 2004 @ 12:26 AM

you make a lot of good points here.

but consider the pamphlets that the links point too in my first posting, there are Jews that think it is important to know which Jews in the world are in positions of influence so that they can claim them for their 'community.'

posted on Feb, 8 2004 @ 03:14 AM
I dont know if he's Jewish per se, but I think he has a lot of Jewish infulences on him

Scroll down a bit and you'll see the picture I'm referencing to. interesting , sure looks like he knows what he's doing there to me.

A Jew traces his genealogy on both sides. That's why rabbis often have those screwdrivers by their temples. Man that sounded strange. You know that curly piece of the hair in front of the ears.

Ummm... what about all the Zionists???

Unless of course you don't consider them to really be Jewish.
