Bush fundraiser linked to crashed drug plane

Remember the strange circumstances surrounding the Gulfstream II jet filled with 3.7 tons of cocaine that crashed in the Yucatan last month? There's more.

According to Mad Cow Morning News, the plane was once owned by ultra-rich Bush supporter Stephen Adams. (In July, the Federal Election Commission filed suit against Adams on charges that he "failed to report and include proper disclaimers on $1,000,000 in billboard ads during the 2004 Presidential race.")

Not only that, but Mad Cow alleges that Adam's business partner owned the other American drug plane that was found in Mexico with 5.5 tons of cocaine in 2006.

200710291335 Recently-released FAA records from the Gulfstream II business jet that went down in Mexico a month ago with four tons of cocaine reveal that before it was “parked” in the name of a New York real estate developer with ties to the Russian Mob, the plane was owned by a secretive Midwestern media baron and Republican fund-raiser, who had a business partner who, incredibly, owned the other American drug plane, the DC9, recently busted in Mexico.

Adams was in business with Miami attorney Michael Farkas, who founded SkyWay Aircraft, which owned the DC9 busted in Mexico 18 months ago with 5.5 tons of cocaine aboard.

Moreover at the same time the Bush Ranger extraordinaire Stephen Adams owned the Gulfstream (N987SA) in 1999 and 2000, he was personally buying over $1 million of billboard ads for George W. Bush for his 2000 Presidential election bid.



  1. It should be no surprise.Your government is in bed with Drug Lords.In Afghanistan too.
    Rule #1 of governing,keep the masses poor and stupid,so they are not watching you when you give them the royal screwing.

  2. I think the excerpt misuses the word “incredibly”; I find it entirely credible, myself.

    That new investigative journalism outfit that the Wall St. Journal guy started (recently on BB) — they should look into this, no?

  3. Georgie-boy’s just trying to stock up before he leaves office. Give him a break.

    Move along, nothing to see here.

  4. Am I missing something here?

    Believe me, i’d love nothing more than concrete evidence that Bush was backed by drug money, but this is nothing. This has nothing to do with Bush or Adams.

    If I sold two computers and then years later someone was busted using them for some crime, would that mean that anyone I had supported for election was now tied to that crime?

    C’mon folks. The administration does enough genuinely illegal and unethical things that we don’t need to waste our time on this kind of a stretch.

  5. I can’t find it in myself to be shocked by any of this – I mean, for me, it doesn’t quite top “reviewing” the CDC director’s presentation on global warming from 14 pages to 4 followed up by staged FEMA press conferences…

    It is fascinating, though, to see an administration and a prez implode before he’s turned in a budget for his presidential library. I’d say an outhouse with a vast underground septic tank will do just fine.

  6. You’d think by now they would’ve figured out how to fake FAA and purchase records. The CIA really needs to hire a few good counterfitters and hackers to get the job done right! Whatever happened to “we have no record of that” . . . now it’s a long list of associated people with ties to the top. Get some other friends…try democrats, they haven’t had a good scandal in a little while…

  7. “If I sold two computers and then years later someone was busted using them for some crime, would that mean that anyone I had supported for election was now tied to that crime?”

    That isn’t quite what happened here. This latest news isn’t proof, it’s circumstantial, but it does raise questions and there does seem to be a pattern of criminality here.

  8. I’m no Bush supporter, but I have to say I’m with Vertigo25 on this one. The fact that someone once owned a plane that is used to commit a crime in no way implicates that person.

    Odds seem pretty good that somewhere in the chain of title for any vintage 1970s private jet lies a big business honcho who has done some political fundraising.

    All this conspiracy nonsense is just that: nonsense. While I guess I see the fun in it, anyone who takes it seriously is either the liberal equivalent of Rush Limbaugh (i.e., so obsessed with smearing one’s political opponents that it doesn’t matter what the basis of the attack is) or or simply a moron.

  9. Well, it’s not like there isn’t precedence for this. Are you all too young to remember the Iran-Contra affair? It’s not a giant philosophical leap from drug money to defeat the commies to drug money to defeat the more recent conservative bugbear: liberals. [Shudder.]

  10. Keeping it illegal keeps it expensive and I mean expensive in direct proportion to the amount of tax dollars being wasted in enforcing what amounts to yet another incarnation of the utterly counter-productive prohibition-style enforcement. Keeping it expensive, of course, means lots of extra profits with which to rig the game of politics, speaking of which, what other protected american industry has seen its profits and its power with the overlords of the country’s governing process soar over the last few years? Religion. Yeah…not ususally thought of as an industry, but we all know it is and like any entity it strives to be..uh, relevant..and powerful. Be very carefull anytime both religion and big time crime are sharing the reins of power in the horse cart that’s carrying you and your most cherished posssessions.

  11. Bells

    Mike was in the fertilized egg business.

    He had several hundred young layers (hens), called ‘pullets,’ and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs.
    He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.

    This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to his roosters.
    Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing.
    Now, he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.

    Mike’s favorite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen, but this morning he noticed old Butch’s
    bell hadn’t rung at all. When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing 
    pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, could run for cover.

    To Mike’s amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn’t ring..
    He’d sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.

    John was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair 
    and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

    The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece 
    Prize but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.

    Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making. Who else but a 
    politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted 
    awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and 
    screwing them when they weren’t paying attention.

    the bells are not always audible…
