Ford the bastard

Filed under: Uncategorized — Bart @ 8:31 pm

In 1976, Ford brought Bush the Smarter back to Washington to become Director of Central Intelligence. Ford’s Def Sec was Rummy the Bastard, his Chief of Staff was the lying Dick.

Gerald Ford, like Denny Hastert, was a talentless nobody who was appointed into history
so he could be a puppet for smarter, more ambitious sons of bitches than himself.

…and America’s whore press can’t give him enough oral now that he’s gone. 



  1. “Rumsfeld and Cheney and the president made a big mistake in justifying going into the war in Iraq. They put the emphasis on weapons of mass destruction,”… “And now, I’ve never publicly said I thought they made a mistake, but I felt very strongly it was an error in how they should justify what they were going to do.” – Former president Gerald R. Ford

    Aw! Who is the clown who had to mess up the lovely pomp and circumstance by filing this quote?
    Why it’s none other than Bob “ten-cents a dance” Woodward!
    But wait! It gets better!

    Ford (was quoted) in an embargoed interview in July 2004 that the Iraq war was not justified…
    The Ford interview…took place for a future book project, though he said his comments could be published at any time after his death.

    That’s right! The Wood-man has been sitting on this bijou for three years!. But ol’Bob ain’t a tool is he? Naw! By definition tools are useful for something.
    Did Woodward really need this final effort? I mean, didn’t he have “Press Whore of 2006″ already sewed up.
    So don’t let anyone tell you Ford was anything but a loyal company man. If he were still alive he would be supporting Bush right up to the burning of the Reichstag.
    According to PBS this evening Ford was sandbagged by Nixon loyalists just prior to the pardon. The way it was supposed to work was Nixon was to have signed a confession and only then get the pardon. Ford had a bit of the three-card-monty played on him and Nixon claimed to his dying day he was innocent and had been hounded from office.
    Bet the funeral parade will be nice, though. I’m going to get me a balloon.

  2. Some of the more interesting parts of Ford‘s career that won’t make the evening news:

    As mentioned elsewhere, Ford was responsible for one of the Warren Commission’s biggest lies; by re-positioning the bullet entry wound that hit Kennedy in the back (here, page 7), Ford made Arlen Spector’s single bullet theory nonsense seem plausible.

    It has also been mentioned, in only a tiny handful of news reports, that Ford (along with perpetual international thug Henry Kissinger) supported Indonesian dictator Suharto’s invasion of East Timor that led to the death of hundreds of thousands of East Timorese. As Dennis Perrin noted in his Red State Son blog,

    Now, a civilized country that dealt with its history honestly would mention the above in any overview of that period. And had Gerald Ford been, say, a Chinese premier who ordered a client army to wipe out a third of a smaller country’s population, I’m guessing that would be mentioned in American news outlets upon his death. But being the U.S. president who ended a “national nightmare,” Ford’s direct hand in mass murder is completely ignored.

    But an even darker story that you certainly won’t hear about is his how Ford deftly smoothed over the shocking death of Army chemist Frank Olson. Olson was a victim of the MK ULTRA experiments, a bizzare but unfortunately real program of the CIA in which unwitting Americans, including military officers and government agents and even civilians and ordinary citizens, were dosed with LSD and other mind-altering drugs in a series of attempts at human mind control. After being dosed in the earliest days of MK ULTRA in 1953, Olson suffered a nervous breakdown. His concerned family (who had no idea at the time he had been dosed) was assured by the military that he would be well taken care of. But instead, Olson was found dead outside the New York Statler (now Hilton) Hotel after falling 13 stories from the window of the room where he was supposedly getting “rest”.

    In the mid-seventies, when all manner of government wrongdoing began to work its way into the public consciousness after Watergate, it was revealed that Olson had been dosed. Ford’s White House painted it as a tragic accident: the poor man went mad from the drugging and killed himself. Ford actually had a photo-op with the widow Olson and formally apologized. He paid off Olson’s family (in exchange for them signing a waiver not to sue) and later issued the first executive order banning the CIA from such experimentation. The problem is, it meant “grandfathering” in all the prior acts of human experimentation, in effect giving the perpetrators blanket immunity from prosecution. Lawsuits by alleged victims still pop up from time to time–there were thousands of MK ULTRA guinea pigs, since the program lasted for 20 years–but the suits are almost always thrown out because either the courts decide “it happened a long time ago, so it doesn’t matter anymore” or else they cite a “lack of evidence”, which is the CIA’s fault since they illegally destroyed almost all of their documentation of the experiments (and they got away with that too, suprise suprise).

    And it turns out Ford’s apology was actually covering up a much more disturbing truth: Olson didn’t commit suicide–he was murdered. After Frank Olson’s wife’s died in the 1990s, their son Eric had his father’s remains excavated and properly autopsied. The results were incredible: Olson’s body had no markings that would be consistent with jumping through a plate glass window as alleged. Instead, the forensic pathologist, the well-reknowned Professor James Starr, found injuried to the head that would be consistent with Olson being knocked unconscious before being thrown out of the window to the street below.

    And just in case you’re wondering who in Ford’s White House suggested that the White House be vague and not really bother to get to the heart of the matter, which made the White House an accessory after the fact in what has turned out to be the murder of a man who loyally served his country? Why, it was two White House aides. Maybe you’ve heard of them. Their names are Richard Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld. The documents in which they recommended Ford’s CYA routine (now declassified as part of the Ford Library) can be viewed here.

    For an absolutely heartbreaking article about the Frank Olson saga, I recommend reading this, archived from the Frank Olson Project website.

  3. …and why was Ford appointed into history by Nixon? Because he was Nixon’s best friend: and

    Ford also fucked with the Warren report evidence (

    And how did Ford get onto the Warren Commission? Nixon recommended him!! (

    Fuck Ford

  4. Just for the sake of argument you could also say that had Ford not pardoned Nixon, Clinton might have been removed from office, but the Senate lost its nerve when comparing his crimes to Nixon’s and since a precendent had been set for pardon, they voted not to remove Clinton.

    I still think Nixon shouldn’t have been pardoned. I also think Clinton shouldn’t have been impeached. But it’s obvious we have no justice in this country.

  5. There is no comparison as to what Clinton did and was impeached, and what Nixon or the chimp has done and one pardoned and the other nothing.

    It is all beyond me.

  6. Ford on the Warren Commission, was a 1986 (or so) revelation for me; putting him in company with Allen Dulles and John J McCloy made his reputation drop, for me, beyond his Nixon pardon…

    But I can’t hate him: his Secret Service detail guarded my racing bicycle when I worked a concert he attended, in Vail, Co., USA. :-)

    As R Parry (Consortium) said, he served more, perhaps, as the ‘incubator’ for the bad President&Co we endure now, as well as a springboard to Reaganism.

    I won’t know if he’s fryin’, don’t believe in elevators…

  7. If you read Webster G. Tarpley’s book – George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography – you’ll see that Poppy wanted to be VP pretty bad.
    And if I were a betting man, I’d bet that Bush was behind the assasination attempts.

    As for pardoning Nixon… The blanket pardon “for any and all crimes” was to stop an investigation that would have led all the way to the Bay of Pigs and JFK. Ford was part of the cover-up in the beginning, and the Nixon pardon was another door slammed to keep the truth from getting out.
    Nobody liked Nixon – do you think anyone really gave a shit if he went down for ordering a break-in?

    Besides JFK… if all the conspirators had been rounded up on that one, and there were no “gate-keepers” left in power… the truth about the apollo scam would have come out too.
    Ever wonder why Nixon halted the program when he knew he was leaving? :) Started under Nixon… ended under Nixon… the original video is “lost” (actually it’s been MIA since 1971)… we want to beat the Chinese there, but can’t make it till 2020?

    I know – it sounds crazy. Everything can’t be a conspiracy… maybe this or that… but not the other… but think about it this way – these are the same crooks doing it all. What does that do to the odds?

    Isn’t a fake war on terror with $2 trillion spent with most contracts paid and not completed… some not even started… brazen enough to make you suspect that when Rummy and crew were in the nixon whitehouse that JUST maybe they sold us a fake moon landing like they sold us a fake war?

    Or maybe you’d like to see proof? I can show you… :)

  8. Those eulogies for Gerald Ford sound a bit different to me.
    When they say how decent Jerry was, I hear, “…unlike that yahoo we’ve got now”. When they talk about healing the nation, I hear, “instead of ripping it apart.” When they talk about his honesty….

  9. Ford was a real party hack. His actions in pardoning Nixon cleaned up the Rebublican image enough to allow Reagan in and we’ve been on the downhill slide ever since. Seeing the fruits of Bush41, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and the other trash from his administration only validates my opinion.
    Hope they have a particularly nasty room for him in the Ronald Reagan Wing of hell. (Sorry, Nixon, he beat you out for the top honor,)
