Bush Rape Victim's Suicide ? News Story Blacked Out Nation
ThoughtCrime News - Cutting through the propaganda
In the western world, only one newspaper reports the suicide of the
woman who accused George W Bush of rape

Saturday 13th December 2003
Despite the enormity of the story, a virtual news blackout has remained
in place since Margie Schoedinger first filed charges against George W
Bush in 2002.
Schoedinger had accused Bush of rape and other sexual crimes against
both her and her husband, only one publication in the USA saw fit to
print anything about her or her allegations. That publication was her
Her subsequent suicide earlier this year raised many eyebrows amongst
those who learned of her death via the internet. Even though the
sequence of events was bizarre, again the American media ignored
However, the US press were not alone. Both the (London) Times newspaper
and the BBC as well as other major news organisations in the UK were
furnished with the story and sources for the original court filings.
This should have garnered some attention for the story from the big
media sources, if only to ridicule the allegations. Instead, in the same
way the American media served its audience a stream of controlled news,
so too did the British media by pretending Schoedinger didn't exist.
Schoedinger apparently committed suicide on 22nd September of 2003 but
her death only attracted new attention on the internet in November of
2003. Only now has one small-circulation newspaper in the UK run the
story of her demise. It found the story so newsworthy it ran its
headline on the front page next to the title header.
The New Nation serves the black community of London and, according to a
spokesperson for the newspaper, has a circulation of 25,000. This
spokesperson also stated that the newspaper had confirmed the details of
the story before publishing and apologised for the misprinting of
Schoedinger's death as 12th December 2003.
That a newspaper in the English-speaking part of the world has finally
deemed this story worthy of publication finally gives legitimacy to it.
If one paper can cover this then so can others.
Many regular readers of `quality´ newspapers such as the Times,
Telegraph and even the NY Times have never heard of Margie Schoedinger.
Her tale illustrates how the news available on the internet is often of
greater value than that which is paid for. Editors should be asked by
their paying readers and viewers why this story has been censored.
One can only deduce that the likes of Rupert Murdoch, Lord Conrad Black
and Greg Dyke of the BBC have chosen to keep their political masters
happy by blacking out any reference to the allegations and apparent
suicide of Margie Schoedinger.
Hopefully the public will learn that what is news by the standards of
big-money radio, television and print may not be news according to their
readers. The support of independent media and its reference as a
reliable source is increasingly the only effective way to inform the
public of the real events in the world.

WOMAN WHO SUED BUSH IS FOUND DEAD
by Orantes Moore
Monday 8th December 2003
A black woman who claimed to have been raped by US President George W
Bush and was planning to take him to court has died of a gun shot wound
to the head.
BUSH ACCUSER'S APPARENT SUICIDE
LAST FRIDAY (December 12), Margie Schoedinger, 38, was pronounced dead
as a result of a 'gunshot wound to the head'. The death was officially
registered as 'suicide' by the Harris County Examiner's Office.
As reported exclusively by New Nation in July, Schoedinger of Sugar
Land, Texas, had filed a lawsuit against President Bush (a former
Governor of Texas) in December 2002 accusing him of a series of
'individual sex crimes' against her and her husband.
In the amazing seven- page document, filed at Fort Bend County Court in
Texas, Schoedinger claimed that Bush had abducted, drugged, raped and
She also suggested that she 'dated George W Bush as a minor', and the
President may have been the father of a child she miscarried following
the alleged rape.
Schoedinger said she had filed the lawsuit on December 3, 2002 and
although court documents filed on the following day mention Bush and
offer him 20 days to respond or appear in Fort Bend, it is still unclear
whether the President was ever served with the suit.
Schoedinger was attempting to claim US$1 million in actual damages, plus
US$49 million for punitive damages including emotional distress and loss
Speaking earlier this year to American journalist Jackson Thoreau,
Schoedinger said that the President had personally contacted her to say
that he wanted her dead, but could trust no one to carry out the crime.
Of course, there is no indication that the president had anything
whatsoever to do with her death.
Of the lawsuit she said: 'I am still trying to prosecute, but as yet, I
haven't had a court date set.
'I want to get this matter settled and go on with my life. People have
to be accountable for what they do and that is why I am pursuing this
The US media had largely ignored the filing of the lawsuit and the story
had only appeared in a local newspaper.
