  • Something's Rotten in Dubai: The Ports Deal, The President's Bro, Homeland Non-Security & ICE

    Something's rotten in Dubai. And it's not just the deal to control six of America's ports. The approval of Dubai-owned DP World to run the ports has brought out a lot of security issues that should have been raised at least 4.5 years ago, after 9/11. But there are a lot of issues associated with this that HAVEN'T come to light. First, there's the President's refusal to re-examine the deal, despite the fact that he admittedly didn't know about it until the public furor. What you don't know is about the President's brother, Neil Bush, and his ties to Dubai....

    HOUSTON - The former wife of President Bush's brother has rejected a proposed settlement of a slander lawsuit accusing her of spreading rumors that Neil Bush fathered a child out-of-wedlock. Sharon Bush says paternity tests she ordered on the boy last year are unreliable. She claims the doctor who performed the test is unqualified, and that she hired a new DNA expert to review the original test. The original results "are flawed and should be thrown out," Sharon Bush said in a statement released Tuesday by her publicist. "They do not demonstrate one way or the other who fathered the...

The reporter for 20/20 did the biggest smear on Bush I have seen on the network in years. Not one person was interviewed on the Bush side of the story...all for the ex-wife. The way she made it sound it was as if the Bush family were the Corleone's from The Godfather series. ABC presented the most one sided smear I could imagine this close to an election.

    HOUSTON – Paternity testing shows presidential brother Neil Bush did not father the child of his mistress-turned-wife, attorneys in a slander case against his former wife said yesterday. Sharon Bush, Neil Bush's former wife of 23 years, is accused of spreading rumors that the child at the center of a defamation lawsuit was fathered by her ex-husband. The suit was filed last year by Robert Andrews, who previously was married to Bush's current wife, Maria Andrews Bush. Robert Andrews, whose DNA matched that of the boy, claims the rumors harmed his 3-year-old son. "You can't unring a bell," said Andrews'...

    HOUSTON - A judge ordered DNA testing to determine whether President Bush's brother Neil fathered a child with another woman while he was married. Neil Bush's ex-wife, Sharon, requested the tests to defend herself against a defamation lawsuit filed by the other woman's ex-husband. Sharon Bush testified during the couple's contentious divorce that she heard rumors that her husband had an affair with Maria Andrews and is the father of her 3-year-old son. Andrews and Neil Bush are now engaged. Andrews' ex-husband, Robert, filed a defamation lawsuit against Sharon Bush in September, saying he is the boy's father. The DNA...

    HOUSTON (AP) - In the annals of embarrassing presidential relatives, Neil Bush is no Billy Carter or Roger Clinton. But his messy divorce has produced some eye-opening disclosures. Among them: He had sex with women who showed up uninvited at his hotel rooms in Asia; he had an affair and may have fathered a child out of wedlock; and he stands to make millions from businesses in which he has little expertise - including a computer-chip company managed in part by the son of former Chinese president Jiang Zemin. It seems certain opportunities tend to present themselves when your name...

    WASHINGTON -- Cashing in stock options before the market crashed, presidential brother Neil Bush made at least $171,370 in a single day by buying and selling shares in a small U.S. high-tech firm where he had previously been a consultant, according to tax returns that give a glimpse into his business dealings. The July 19, 1999 purchase and quick sale of stock from Kopin Corp. of Taunton, Mass., came on a day that the company received good news about a new Asian client that sent its stock value soaring. "My timing on this transaction was very fortunate," Bush told The...

But you could hear an all-too-familiar lament from the White House — Oh, Brother! Presidents are always having family problems, just like the rest of us.

    If you survey the contrasting fortunes of the Bush brothers this week, you cannot help noticing that Neil Bush is the guy the media, the Democrats and the Europeans accuse George W Bush of being. The one who's President - George, not Neil - flew in to Baghdad to spend Thanksgiving with the troops, whose rapturous reception was reported in The Independent under the headline "The turkey has landed" - which is apparently what passes for wit among its sub-editors. I hope they saved some turkey jokes for leftovers: they're going to have to keep up the moron cracks until...

    President George Bush's lightning public-relations strike on Baghdad last week will have provided him with powerful television imagery with which to launch his re-election campaign next year. But the sight of the President serving Thanksgiving turkey to the troops has also served to overshadow - at least for the moment - a catalogue of potential political embarrassments created by his younger brother. Neil Bush caused trouble for their father, President Bush the first, more than a decade ago because of his role in the collapse of a savings and loan company that ended up costing American taxpayers $1.3bn (£750m).

At the same time the Bush administration is promising to crack down on alleged trade abuses by the Chinese, Neil Bush has agreed to strategize with China's Grace Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp., the documents show. While there is no indication he has done anything improper, Bush's arrangement could attract attention during a presidential election cycle in which Chinese business practices have become a hot-button issue.

The request, filed Monday, asks that the judge order Neil Bush and Robert Andrews to submit blood tests to determine the paternity of Andrews' 2-year-old son. Sharon Bush contends she needs the tests to defend herself against a $850,000 defamation lawsuit filed against her by Andrews. Andrews' suit contends Bush defamed him when she suggested in conversations with reporters,...
