Understanding Bush Family Treason

James Fulford over at Vdare.com has an excellent article on George W. Bush’s biography and Bush’s explanations on just what the *#$(# he was thinking when he pushed for full amnesty for 10-20 million Mestizos and open borders immigration.

It appears the young G.W. Bush had a deep love for a poor Mexican nanny, housekeeper that the spoiled, super rich Bush family exploited in return for assistance in acquiring US citizenship and help bringing over large numbers of her extended family.

Barbara Bush was apparently too lazy to do her own housework and too cheap to hire an American at a decent wage – so Barbara went the classic elitist route of importing a non White, loyal slave.

Bushes look like us, just don't work or think like us

The situation seem to work out so well that the “adult” George W Bush wanted to welcome the entire poor population of Mexico in to the US to experience the same happy ending as Bush’s loyal, happy slave/nanny Paula.

I see the moral of the story as simply this:
Don’t trust super rich, political elite families like the Bushes and the Kennedys – they don’t work and usually work to destroy the lives of White Americans who do work.

Here’s the whole Fulford article:

Dubya Memoir Shows He Never Understood Immigration (Although His Nanny May Have)

When George W. Bush was 13, his family acquired a nanny:

“She was standing on the doorstep, alone in the rain. She looked tired and scared. A few days earlier, Paula Rendon had said goodbye to her family in Mexico and boarded a bus bound for Houston. She arrived with no money and no friends. All she had was an address, 5525 Briar Drive, and the names of her new employers, George and Barbara Bush.”[Decision Points, By George W. Bush]

I can’t find any other reviews of Bush’s book that talk about Paula Rendon. I suppose the other reviewers left her alone because she didn’t start the Iraq War.

A New York Times story says that Señora Rendon was hired when Barbara Bush answered an ad from a woman “who was seeking sponsorship in return for housekeeping services.” [Texas Town, Now Divided, Forged Bush’s Firm Stand on Immigration, by Jim Rutenberg, June 24, 2007]

That sounds almost as if she were offering to work without pay, like Linda Chavez’s illegal housekeeper/guest. That can’t be right, can it? In fact, what visa did Señora Rendon come in on?

In any event, Señora Rendon is now an official Bush family retainer. The NYT says she “stayed on with the Bush family for decades, following George H.W. and Barbara Bush to the White House and back home”. Ex-First Lady Barbara Bush had her recipe for lemon chicken published in her memoirs.

Dubya goes on:

“I was thirteen years old when I opened the door that evening in 1959. Before long, Paula became like a second mother to my younger brothers and sister and me. She worked hard, taking care of our family in Texas and her own in Mexico. Eventually she bought a home and moved her family to Houston.”

We call this chain migration.

“She always says the proudest day of her life came when she saw her grandson graduate from college.”

It would be nice to think that this was paid for out of the Bush oil fortune. But lots of things that would be nice to think aren’t so. More Dubya:

“As governor and president, I had Paula in mind when I spoke about immigration reform.’Family values don’t stop at the Rio Grande,’ I said.”

So let’s review—Barbara Bush, in 1959, didn’t want to do her own housework, or pay American wages for a housekeeper. As a result, she sponsored a woman who eventually brought her whole family. And who paid for it?

You did!

Bush’s nanny is no doubt a nice lady. But Bush is wrong here—family values actually do stop at the Rio Grande, or to put it another way, Mexican family values start there. Differences between Mexican and American family values include drinking customs, safety and health, respect for women, and women’s’ rights, sexual harassment, and the age of consent. The age of consent in Mexico is twelve.

Bush views the rest of Mexican immigration simply in the context of his experience with his “second mother”:

“Like Paula, most who left Mexico for the United States came to put food on the table for their families. Many worked backbreaking jobs, picking crops in the field or laying tar on roofs under the Texas sun. Some, like Paula, received permanent work visas. Others came as temporary workers through the Bracero Program. Some crossed the border illegally.”

“Over the next four decades, the size of America’s economy expanded from under $3 trillion to more than $10 trillion. The need for workers skyrocketed. Yet immigration and employment laws were slow to change. The Bracero Program expired in 1964 and was not replaced. The supply of permanent work visas did not rise anywhere near as fast as the demand for labor. With no practical way to enter the country lawfully, increasing numbers of immigrants came illegally.”

I’m not going to reproduce Bush’s entire Open Borders spiel here. But I assure you that at no time does he blame the illegals for coming illegally—he’s only worried about the horrors of the illegal crossing that are caused by the fact that it is illegal:

“An underground industry of document forgers and smugglers, known as coyotes, sprang up along the border. They stuffed people in the trunks of cars or left them to walk miles across the searing desert. The number of deaths was appalling. Yet immigrants, many of them determined to feed their families, kept coming.”

Just a little “feed their families” note—there is no famine in Mexico. People can feed their families there.

I think the last actual famine was in 1915. Indeed, Mexico now suffers from a “growing” plague of obesity, which is only going to get worse in El Norte.

What Mexicans want is not food, but money—to buy SUVs and the like, and access to American hospitals and schools.

In any case, the suffering of the illegals during the Bush administration was partly due to the Mexican government, which encourages the crossers; and partly due to Bush himself, for not guarding the border.

So because Barbara Bush, in 1959, didn’t want to do her own housework, or pay American wages, the Governor of Texas/President of the United States wanted to open the border to all comers.

That would multiply the consequences of his family’s importation of Señora Rendon’s family by a factor of several million. (The bill will still not be paid by the Bush Family, but by you.)

And one line that in his biography that actually shocked me was here.

“My first partner on immigration reform was President Vicente Fox of Mexico. Vicente and his wife, Marta, were our guests at the first state dinner Laura and I held, on September 5, 2001. I discussed the possibility of creating a temporary worker program that would allow Mexicans to enter the United States lawfully to work a specific job for a fixed period of time. Vicente supported the idea, but he wanted more. He hoped America would legalize all Mexicans in the United States, a policy he called regularization. I made clear that would not happen. I believed amnesty—making illegal immigrants automatic citizens [Emphasis added]—would undercut the rule of law and encourage further illegal immigration.”

“Making illegal immigrants automatic citizens”? Is that what Bush thinks amnesty means? (I discover, googling, that he said the same thing in a 2006 speech.)

I suppose that’s why, having invented this new definition of amnesty, he kept saying his plan was “not amnesty.”

Amnesty means not punishing aliens for their illegal crossing, or their illegal working-without-a-work-permit, and giving them the right to stay in the US as long as it’s profitable for them.

Mexicans immigrants don’t want particularly American citizenship—they have a perfectly good country of their own, that they can go back to when they retire, or at least be buried in.

What they want is residency. They want the right to stay in the US as long as it’s profitable. They also want to be able to leave if it’s not, or if they might be liable to military service.

Mexican illegals in the United States are doing the same thing American expatriates do when they work overseas in Dubai, the Czech Republic, or France. They don’t want to be Dubainiks, Czechs, or Frenchmen. They want to make some money and go home.

And Mexicans, unlike the storied immigrants of Ellis Island, haven’t left the Old Country behind, across the sea. It’s right there next door.

Bush never understood this, in spite of having a Mexican nanny, a Mexican sister-in-law, a Mexican niece and nephew and being good friends with Mexican President Vicente Fox.

In effect, in spite of being Governor of a Border State, he doesn’t really grasp that there’s a whole other country called Mexico, with its own laws and traditions.

He should probably have asked Señora Rendon.

Of course, that would have involved, not just speaking to a servant—but actually listening to her.


  1. I ran across a related news story this morning: Jeb Bush announced his opposition to Arizona-style laws. The GOP establishment and its elites are worse than the anti-racist Left.

    Jack Ryan replies:

    I understand your position – but I wouldn’t exactly say they are “worse” than the (Jewish, out and out anti White) anti racist Left, they just can’t be trusted in important positions of leadership/power. The Bush family isn’t going to actively work to incite Blacks to riot, loot and murder in Los Angeles, they just are pretty much worthless when the situation occurs and it does. The WASP, non “racist” elite that George Bush Sr. and family personifies is always interested in being well dressed, well liked, agreeing with everyone in the room – they agree with Ronald Reagan pro life, anti Communist Conservatives if they are in the room, but with moderates in the room, they let on that they aren’t part of the rural, bible thumping right wing crowd, the Bush WASP elite doesn’t like the (Jewish) cultural marxists that infest Ivy League schools like Harvard and Yale, but the WASP elite insists that their grandfather Prescott Bush went to Yale, became a US Senator, George Bush Sr. went to Yale, became head of the CIA, Vice President and US President so Bush’s son George W. Bush, despite all his problems with academics was going to be another Bush from Yale who went to the top.
    These types are just no use went “the top” institutions have become hopeless anti White and they refuse to even consider the notion that the USA would be so much better off if Harvard and Yale were burnt to the ground – Geroge W. Bush’s grandfather probably worked hard on setting up the United Nations charter, so the grandson isn’t going to chuck the whole UN mess.

  3. I was under the assumption that wealthy people with class had White servants while people that hired Mexicans were rich trash.

  4. You are crediting the Bushes with way too much altruism for poor little Mexican maids and not enough cold, calculating political pragmatism that is quick to get ahead of foreseeable demographic trends.

    Grandaddy Prescott Bush was doing deals with Hitler, Mussolini, and Franco during WWII, because he believed that fascism might be taking off in Europe and spread to the United States. When THAT failed, George Herbert Walker Bush became a soft-core Fabian Socialist.

    His position as vice president in the house enabled him to position his family to jump ahead of the next trend which will be the North American Union. He saw the righting on the wall when Reagan signed off on the Simpson-Mazzoli bill – the grandaddy of Mexican amnesty bills.

    He used his oilman ties to establish firm ties of friendship with the corrupt Mexican oligarchy. He even sent his son, Jeb, to Mexico where he acquired a Mexican bride, Columbina. They are quietly positioning Jeb to run for president in either 2012 or 2016, gambling that the Obamanation will help the country overcome the Bush Fatigue they suffered in 2008. Moreover, they intend to do it again after that with George Prescott Bush (Jeb and Columbina’s son).

    The Bushes are very adept at staying in the national game. They make the Kennedys look like pikers in comparison.

  5. Clytemnestra says:
    “You are crediting the Bushes with way too much altruism for poor little Mexican maids and not enough cold, calculating political pragmatism that is quick to get ahead of foreseeable demographic trends.”

    Jack Ryan replies.

    The Bushes, like the Kennedys have their fingers to the wind – looking to go with the flow and be on top whether the current mood is “America First”, McCarthy anti Communism, United Nations international cooperation, Reagan Conservatism or Mexican American unity.

    But, with the Bushes, it just comes off as an elite blue blood family that doesn’t like to work real jobs and manages to stay on because our side can’t form pitch fork mobs of peasants willing to take out corrupt, lazy royals.

  6. Actually, the Bush clan was on the way out until Reagan made his Mistake of Mistakes: bringing in GHWB as VP. Maybe I’m wrong here, but I tend to view RR’s (increasingly detached, senescent) second term as more Bush 41’s First: legalization of illegals, Free Trade with Japan, Iran-Contra….that’s all via the corporate/CIA wing of the Republican Party, less so the Reagan, more populist (now TP) wing. Whatever, the Bushs are now a national tumor.

  7. True. Thanks for the reminder! I can’t believe I let myself fall into using the other side’s meme when I should know better.
