Say It Ain't So Condoleeza!!

I'm constantly asked questions about George Bush's cabinet. People ask "Bruce, who are these characters in his cabinet and where did they all come from? And why them?

Well, this question is always met with a smile. "That's an easy one. They all (or the vast majority) came from the oil industry." Our government has been run by oil industry executives ever since Georgiepoo came into office." Did the media ever even bother to report this? Do I even need to answer that question... other than Dick being former CEO of Halliburton.?
But one of these cabinet characters is someone that I've always been obsessed with. No, not Dick, and no, not Don... Condoleezza Rice. I wondered from the start... WHO IS THIS WOMAN AND WHAT IS SHE DOING RUNNING THE NSA and is now is our embarrassing and by far the most ineffective and incompetent Secretary of States in American history? (I also believe she is the single most accomplished LIAR on planet earth... and I've known and watched a lot of great liars.)

Well, to do my homework, I came across one of THE funniest blogs I've ever read that I simply cannot stop reading and laughing. Princess Sparkle Pony's Photo Blog. Her tagline: I keep track of Condoleezza's hairdo so you don't have to. I need not say anything else... its just too funny for words. Go to her blog and laugh... and cry.

So, who is this woman? Well, we were told by the MSM upon her initial appointment that she was a tenured professor from Stanford. OK... that's cool. But why her? There
are lots of tenured professors from Stanford and every single Bush Cabinet appointee was someone that was either prominent in government, a hawkish and wackadoodle NeoCon and/or a Senior Oil Industry Executive... and here is this nobody running the most sophisticated intelligence gathering organization the world has ever seen and works in an office just feet from the President.

Well, no surprises here.... a little research and... oh look at that!... Condi is from CHEVRON. Yea, that really big oil company that swallowed Texaco and is the third largest oil company in the world.

I'll just let Wikipedia tell you the rest of this sorry and sordid tale (as they could do it just as well as I and with no typos).... and no doubt... there are twists and turns everywhere that I'll bring all of you up at to date on them very soon.

"Since she would have been ineligible for tenure at Stanford if she had been absent for more than two years, in 1991, she returned to Stanford. She was now taken under the wing of George P. Shultz (Ronald Reagan's Secretary of State from 1982-1989), who was a fellow at the Hoover Institution. Shultz included Rice in a "luncheon club" of intellectuals who met every few weeks to discuss foreign affairs. In 1992, Shultz, who was a board member of Chevron Corporation, recommended Rice for a spot on the Chevron board. Chevron was pursuing a $10 billion development project in Kazakhstan, and as a Soviet specialist, Rice knew the President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev. She traveled to Kazakhstan on Chevron's behalf, and, in honor of her work, in 1993, Chevron named a 129,000-ton supertanker The SS Condoleezza Rice.

Rice headed Chevron's committee on public policy until she resigned on January 15, 2001, to become National Security Advisor to President George W. Bush."

Condoleezza sat on the Board of Chevron for nearly 10 years before becoming National Security Advisor. What a surprise!

I'll end with a question: Does this tell us anything about this woman's interests, agenda and beliefs, and what impact do you think this has had on the situation we are in now?
