The "brain "of President
Karl Rove , his life , his dirty work
Edgar González Ruiz*
Communication Strategist appointed by Bush , Karl Rove
helped to climb up the post of president , largely limiting his
verbal gaffes and by getting them to seduce the electorate
fundamentalist Christian. A great admirer and follower of
Richard Nixon , he did his business by opening a consulting
firm specializing in political shenanigans . His career marked
by " suicide " doubtful, collusion with far-right movements
varied and its links with Enron show that behind the
righteous speeches of Bush lies a cunning and ruthless
character , desperate to satisfy his political ambitions.
Rove Karl Rove is one of the most influential advisers of George W.
Bush. Some think he is the man whose election strategies have
enabled it to occupy the post of governor of Texas , to secure his
reelection , then enter the White House .
It has been described as " Goebbels "of Bush , child prodigy of
the policy, eminence grise, co -president, but is above all a
treacherous character as it abounds in the policy community and
But beyond the qualifiers , only count the actions of a person .
Karl Rove, sa vie, ses basses oeuvres [Voltaire] Page 1 of 11
Rove 's life is a succession of lies, slander and crimes , including
His knowledge of many arts policy is to be attributed to his long
experience as " debauched " policy , and the success of these is
among others to attribute to the stupidity of much of American
society accustomed to methods of advertising sales .
The fact that as a "coup Thicket , torts and slander, Rove may
have had an ascending career , destroyed the myth of the
strength of democratic institutions in the United States .
Rove is leading the ' Club lunches " collaborators Bush meets with
him weekly to plan schemes against Kerry . At the same time ,
he enjoyed vis- à-vis the U.S. press of a greater impunity , which
allows him to dodge the interviews and staying in the shade. This
raises questions about freedom of expression in Venezuela ,
where some are more equal than others " , to paraphrase Orwell
's character , and where it is facing the press the untouchables
who are public figures no obligation to answer for their actions .
Bush to Nixon
Born December 25, 1950 in Denver , he already admired Richard
Nixon to 9 years the cheat , and 11 years, he had political
ambitions that would lead him a few years later to abandon his
studies at the University of Utah join the campaign of a
Republican senator . "He dreamed of being president and was
unable to get the autographs of a governor .
During the Watergate scandal , Rove has been cited by
Washington Post as "a youth who had conducted training
sessions for dirty tricks that Nixon had used"And he was
interviewed by the FBI .
His personal profile , his lack of ethics and his ability to destroy
his political enemies attracted the attention of George Bush Sr. ,
who recruited him to be his assistant at the Republican National
Committee (NRC ), or he knew George W. Bush the son.
In the early '80s , he opened a consulting firm in politics, which
he sold to Texan billionaire advice to destroy the Democrats by
slanderous campaigns , up to invent their place of espionage
Karl Rove, sa vie, ses basses oeuvres [Voltaire] Page 2 of 11
scandals or telephone false FBI investigation .
In addition to defame political rival of his clients, he intimidated
the media by threatening to deliver on the supposed sexual
secrets and even went so far as to verbally .
He also made use of marketing campaigns, using the media hype
to create the illusion that society as a whole "request" the
triumph of a character the likes of Bush .
Given Bush 's verbal clumsiness , Rove has kept away from the
media, while using other figures such as Rudolph Giuliani  , so
they appear in favor of his client.
During the presidential campaign for Bush in 2000 , Rove boasted
that people do not retain details of the route of Bush policies ,
but rather they would vote by focusing on its image as a
defender of U.S. values  .
In November 2002 Karl Rove organized the reelection campaign
of Governors as well as a large part of the Congress taking
advantage of the war and the attacks of September 11 . The
Democrats were unwilling to criticize the government for fear that
one doubts their patriotism , thereby allowing you to put aside
the arguments of an economic and social. This strategy enabled
Bush to win by using the lie of weapons of mass destruction that
Saddam Hussein was supposed to hold .
Although Rove ale had used the strategy of terrorizing his
political opponents by threatening to reveal their inner lives , or
invent lies about it , the personal history of Rove is quite dark
and contains details about which reflection is needed .
His father left home when he was 19 and his mother, alone,
committed suicide in Reno, Nevada in 1981.
Twenty years later , in July 2001, another suicide occurs in the
life of Rove , that of James H. Hatfield , biographer of Bush in his
book : The Bush cartel or the route of a privileged son ,
revealed that Bush had been arrested in 1972 for coc aine
possession , and that his powerful father had then used his
Karl Rove, sa vie, ses basses oeuvres [Voltaire] Page 3 of 11
influence to remove this blot his
record . Since the publication of the
book, a campaign of vilification of the
author was launched by the Daily
Texan Daily Morning News, Close to
Bush. Under pressure, the publisher ,
St. Martin Press , retired from the
bookstores and cremation 70,000
copies available . In his defense ,
Hatfield revealed the name of his
informant : Karl Rove , Bush's close
adviser . Anyway , the biographer lost
two publishing contracts and was
literally ruined. Finally , shortly after he
received death threats and witnessed by two Bush advisers ,
Hatfield was found dead in a hotel room in Springdale , ingestion
of toxic substances. Beside him , a note explaining that his ruin
and his alcohol problems were behind his decision. It is well
known that many well-planned assassinations often falsify these
letters testamentary supposed suicide . Nobody has been able to
prove credibly that Hatfield had committed suicide .
The previous facts are hardly surprising , given the values of
education and that Rove has received, he was initiated , among
others, political shenanigans by Lee Atwater , who in 1973 was to
lead a Republican presidential scholars .
That same year, Karl Rove introduced Bush to his friend Lee ,
who after the 1984 elections has joined the firm of Black
Manafort and Stone , which worked for the Bush- Quayle
campaign four years later.
Among employees of the firm is also Dwight Chapin, who was
jailed in 1972 for having lied in denying that he hired Donald
Segreti to sabotage the campaign of Sen. Muskie Edgar .
Activities Segreti , master Rove, are recounted by Woodward and
Bernstein in their book Wacky President in the following quote
we see how Segreti tried to recruit a collaborator cons Muskie
"Would you like to work in an operation with a bit of political
espionage ? ... Suppose we go to a political meeting Kennedy and
we are a strong advocate for his campaign . You tell him you're
James H. Hatfield
Karl Rove, sa vie, ses basses oeuvres [Voltaire] Page 4 of 11
also in favor of Kennedy , but you need his help . You then send
the work with Muskie , to carry envelopes of electioneering or any
other similar thing , and you use it to transmit information .
People approached believe they are doing something for Muskie,
Kennedy and cons , but in reality you will use the information for
According to this testimony, "the main goal ... was that
Democrats could not present a united front after the discovery of
a series of tricks in the campaign for the election of their
candidate ... what we had to do was to cause them damage as
they can not rely.
Black, Manafort and Stone, clients included the Prime Minister of
the Bahamas , Oscar Pindling , involved in drug trafficking , Jonas
Savimbi , leader of UNITA , the Angolan movement supported by
the CIA and the Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
Savimbi and Marcos have paid for the lobbying work of Rove , as
well as tobacco magnate , Philip Morris , who recruited him to
provide "Political Intelligence. From 1991 to 1996 , Rove has
received more than three thousand dollars monthly from tobacco
company where he worked for Jack Dillard . At the same time ,
Rove worked for the then-governor George Bush, but falsely
stated : "My job as adviser to Philip Morris has nothing to do with
my work for the governor. The fact is that the cigarette
manufacturer took the opportunity to avoid paying hundreds of
millions of dollars resulting from charges for damage to health.
At the end of January 2001 , that is to say the arrival of George
Bush as president , Bernd McConnell , assistant for African affairs
secretary of defense , met with Jardo Muekalia movement Angola
Right UNITA , despite the ban imposed by the UN to establish this
type of contact  . journalistic sources , Muekalia was also
received by Karl Rove.
Theft, lies and terrorism
Already in 1970 , in Illinois, Rove broke into the office of
Democrat Alan Dixon . He stole campaign materials and printed
false invitations Dixon in which he promised his followers "free
beer , girls and good times. They were distributed to the
homeless . It was a calculated maneuver to undermine the
In September 2003, the Washington Post revealed that there was
Karl Rove, sa vie, ses basses oeuvres [Voltaire] Page 5 of 11
an ongoing investigation against Rove for violating federal laws
that prohibit revealing the identity of CIA agents . Rove and the
CIA director , George Tenet , briefed a half - dozen reporters that
the wife of Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV was an agent . As
such , it was discovered that Bush's accusations , saying that
Saddam Hussein wanted to procure uranium from Niger were
false. That's why Rove had launched against him one of his usual
campaign of discredit and political revenge and personal.
A recent campaign Rove was based on the dissemination of false
witness who cast doubt on Kerry 's activities in Vietnam. They
were propagated by a group of Vietnam veterans that Bob Perry ,
a millionaire and friend of Rove , had given two hundred
As usual , Rove then lied about his relationship with Perry , as he
had lied to avoid military service in Vietnam as an excuse to
further his studies , he never completed.
On August 20, 2004 , the New York Times revealed that Rove
had said through a spokesman that he and Perry were longtime
friends , but they had not spoken for over a year. Five days
later , Rove told Fox News : "I do not want to leave a false
impression . But , you know , Perry is not someone with whom I
spoke at length for years ..." , implying that in reality he had
spoken with Perry, but not "long" very relative term , if any.
Among the money that Bush gave Rove to reward his expertise in
" dirty tricks " there are 340,579 dollars in 1994 and 220,228
dollars from January to March 1999 for his consulting firm , he
will sell quickly to focus exclusively to the Bush campaign .  .
In January 2002 , it was revealed that among the largest
shareholders of Enron were featured Karl Rove , as well as
Pentagon chief Donald Rumsfeld, Deputy Director of the
Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA), Linda Fischer, Deputy
Treasury Secretary Peter Fischer and Foreign Trade
Representative Robert Zoellick. Just as the Navy Secretary
Thomas White was vice chairman of Enron before assuming his
post at the Pentagon , and this time he held shares in the
company valued at between 50 and 100 million dollars  .
Previously , June 1, 2001 , the Associated Press revealed that
Rove had 1.3 to 3.3 million in stock that included a one -quarter
Karl Rove, sa vie, ses basses oeuvres [Voltaire] Page 6 of 11
million dollars in each of the following companies : General
Electric , Enron Intel, Boeing , Johnson & Johnson
pharmaceutical , Cisco Systems and American Express.
Previous data have interesting ramifications , especially regarding
the actions of Rove in the pharmaceutical industry .
It is common knowledge that the National Endowment for
Democracy ( NED )  Is a means of financing state - Americans
of right-wing groups in many countries and in particular, he
strongly supported the anti -Chavez opposition who wanted to
end the mandate of the statesman by dismissing Venezuelan by
In the style of Rove , the firm Penn , Schoen & Berland
Associates has lied about the forecast and actual results of the
referendum , arguing the opposite of what happened , that
Chavez would lose the consultation with the same gap that one
with which he has actually won  . Penn , Schoen & Berland
had members in Súmate , who had received more than fifty
thousand dollars from the NED. Moreover , as noted by New York
Times of 24 April 2002 , the director of the NED was the former
Republican congressman Vin Weber, a well-known figure on the
far right who was simultaneously lobbying of pharmaceutical
companies which , as has been said , Rove held shares for
amounting to one quarter of a million dollars .
In late 2001, in his book Cuba Confidential : Love and Vengeance
in Miami and Havana Ann Louise Bardach has revealed Rove
's support for militarist sectors of the Cuban exile . According to
Bardach , Rove "asked the president to please the advocates of "
hard line " as retribution for his election victory and that of his
In March 2004 , Karl Rove went to Miami and promised Cuban-
American series of measures against the Castro regime , which
would include stiffer penalties for those who trade with Cuba ,
strong measures against countries allied U.S. who sympathize
with Havana , and the reduction of flights to the island  .
In late June of last year , Rove , who despite not having finished
his studies , is a professor at the University of Texas , has
corrected a student who challenged him to explain how the U.S.
government justified the war against Iraq when we did not find
weapons of mass destruction. He corrected "Above all, the battle
Karl Rove, sa vie, ses basses oeuvres [Voltaire] Page 7 of 11
of Iraq, not war. Explaining that "war" is a progressive war
against terrorism that has no end , Rove has confirmed the
government's commitment to terrorism to Bush  .
In July 2004 , Wayne Madsen reported that September 15,
2001 , Rove used the authorization given to policies issued after
the assassination attacks against the Twin Towers , to eliminate
the Lebanese politician Elie Hobeika . It plans to show
incontrovertible evidence available to it to show that Prime
Minister Ariel Sharon had authorized the massacre of hundreds of
men , women and children Palestinian camps Sabra and ShatilaIn
1982 . At that time, Elie Hobeika was intelligence chief of
Lebanese Christian forces fought the Muslims  .
In March 2002 , at a gas station in Sao Paulo , Brazil , and her
husband Michael Nasar was murdered , a maneuver Rove for
additional help Sharon because Nassar also held information on
the killings. Among other things , the murders planned by Rove
obeyed the strategy for increasing support of U.S. Zionists in the
Enron version of Christianity
As stated by the Protestant theologian Juan B. Stam , when Bush
and Rove worked together for the presidential reelection
campaign of Bush Sr. , they have established ties with the
evangelical sector .
"Both were handled to perfection the semantics of this
subculture . While other candidates were considering
controversial subjects , Rove advised Bush to speak simply of his
faith . Bush's son presented himself as " a man with Jesus in his
heart . When a reporter asked who his favorite philosopher socio
- political , Bush replied: " Jesus , because he changed my life . "
It matched perfectly to the extreme individualism of
fundamentalism and what is in the metalanguage of subcodes
Gospel is called " personal witness ."
Stam continued: "In the semantic battle of religious language ,
Bush and Rove have won easily , because they had no rivals.
Bush dominated the fundamentalist language ( and, to some
extent , the language has begun to dominate ).
From a pragmatic point of view only after the 2000 presidential
Karl Rove, sa vie, ses basses oeuvres [Voltaire] Page 8 of 11
election , Karl Rove lamented that the only reason why Bush had
not won a majority of votes was that he could not raise a quarter
of voters sector fundamentalist Christian . He therefore attached
great importance to developing a strategy for securing the vote
of religious fanaticism , although his personal life can be reduced
to a daily violation of virtually all the commandments of the
Christian faith . To this end , Rove has woven a complex web of
alliances and had several characters , including Ralph Reed ,
former leader of the ultra- conservative Christian Coalition ,
which has a vast experience as a televangelist . Rove has
recommended to the infamous Enron , who was recruited as a
consultant for a salary of between ten thousand and twenty
thousand dollars monthly.
In 1999 , when Bush 's presidential campaign has been officially
announced, Reed has joined the list of Republican without
breaking its ties with Enron. According to Reed, Bush would win
the election with the help he received from God. And as if this
were not enough, Reed 's activities at Enron included the
mobilization of religious sectors to support the claims of the
company for "deregulation "of electric utilities in Pennsylvania
and , from there , in other States.
One of Rove 's allies in this mission was a Catholic Deal Hudson
in August 2004 had to publicly renounce its participation in the
Bush campaign after it was discovered he had been involved in
past case of sexual harassment against one of his students .
