COMMENT: In FTR #716, we dis­cussed with author Russ Bak­er the large num­ber of base­ball play­ers accused of using per­for­mance enhanc­ing drugs–steroids in particular–while play­ing for George W. Bush’s Texas Rangers.

Since our inter­views with Mr. Bak­er were record­ed (2010), a new “juic­ing” scan­dal involv­ing big name base­ball play­ers and oth­ers has emerged. The Bio­gen­e­sis firm–billed as an “anti-aging” clinic–has alleged­ly been help­ing numer­ous Major League ballplay­ers enhance their per­for­mance.

It now emerges that the firm was head­ed by Antho­ny “Tony” Bosch, a blood rel­a­tive of Orlan­do Bosch, the head of the mur­der­ous CORU orga­ni­za­tion.

CORU was a key ele­ment of what Dan­ish Jour­nal­ist Hen­rik Kruger called “The Inter­na­tion­al Fascista.” Along with Otto Sko­rzeny’s Pal­adin mer­ce­nary group (financed by the Libya’s Khadafy and man­aged by Ger­hard Hart­mut von Schu­bert, for­mer­ly of Goebbels’ pro­pa­gan­da min­istry), CORU worked hand-in-glove with CIA and oth­er West­ern intel­li­gence ser­vices.

As dis­cussed in FTR #284 (among oth­er pro­grams), the Bush fam­i­ly were very close to the Bosch fam­i­ly, with George H.W. Bush hav­ing par­doned Orlan­do Bosch at the urg­ing of Jeb. The Bush­es are very close to the anti-Cas­tro Cuban com­mu­ni­ty which in turn is inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the CIA and orga­nized crime.

Jeb Bush has a his­to­ry of involve­ment with shady, orga­nized crime-linked med­ical enter­pris­es run by Cuban Amer­i­cans.

A num­ber of things come to mind in this con­text, includ­ing:

  • Orga­nized crime makes a great deal of mon­ey fix­ing sport­ing events. Might the “juic­ing” fig­ure into the fix­ing of sports events?
  • Might ele­ments of CIA also be using sports fix­ing to gen­er­ate off-the-books rev­enue, as they have with drug traf­fick­ing?
  • As dis­cussed by Alan Chase, Cuba was the epi­cen­ter of the Falange in the Amer­i­c­as. We won­der if Orlan­do Bosch might be a blood rel­a­tive of the famous Ger­man Bosch fam­i­ly, deeply involved with I.G. Far­ben and oth­er key Ger­man indus­tri­al con­cerns.
  • We also won­der about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of busi­ness con­cerns such as Bio­gen­e­sis being linked–perhaps unwittingly–with exper­i­men­ta­tion on the human ani­mal.  

 “Antho­ny Bosch’s Tan­gle of Ties, Titles” by Mike Fish and T.J. Quinn; ESPN.com; 2/6/2013.

The self-described bio­chemist tar­get­ed by Major League Base­ball as a sup­pli­er of per­for­mance-enhanc­ing drugs has strong links to clin­ics and indi­vid­u­als who make a liv­ing in the South Flori­da well­ness or anti-aging indus­tries.

Even as he treat­ed ath­letes, Antho­ny Bosch had designs on set­ting up a nation­al dis­tri­b­u­tion net­work for per­for­mance enhancers such as growth hor­mone and testos­terone, “Out­side the Lines” has learned. . . .

. . . . The Bosch fam­i­ly name, with its Cuban roots, is well-known with­in the Mia­mi med­ical com­mu­ni­ty. Bosch’s father, Pedro, has prac­ticed med­i­cine in Flori­da since 1976. Bosch’s moth­er, Stel­la, 76, prac­ticed until vol­un­tar­i­ly relin­quish­ing her license last year. His sis­ter is a licensed physi­cian, and so is a cousin.

Accord­ing to Pedro Bosch’s recep­tion­ist, his late cousin, Orlan­do Bosch, was also a doc­tor — a pedi­a­tri­cian — hav­ing prac­ticed in his native land before becom­ing an armed anti-Cas­tro guer­ril­la. At the time of his pass­ing in 2011 at the age of 84, Orlan­do was a hero in some quar­ters of Miami’s Cuban exile com­mu­ni­ty and an unre­pen­tant crim­i­nal in oth­ers.

Con­nect­ed with sev­er­al mil­i­tant anti-Cas­tro groups, Orlan­do Bosch was con­vict­ed in 1968 for using a makeshift bazooka to shell a Com­mu­nist Pol­ish freighter docked in Mia­mi. Lat­er, in 1976, he was charged in Venezuela, and sub­se­quent­ly acquit­ted after much of the pros­e­cu­tion evi­dence was ruled inad­mis­si­ble, in con­nec­tion with the bomb­ing of a Cuban air­lin­er in which 73 peo­ple were killed.

“Very, very famous name in the Mia­mi com­mu­ni­ty,” said Den­nis Kainen, a promi­nent Mia­mi crim­i­nal defense attor­ney. “He was one of those big anti-Cas­tro free­dom fight­ers from the ’60s and ’70s. ... It is one of those South Flori­da things — peo­ple remem­ber things for 30–40 years.” . . .


One comment for “‘Roid Rage: The Bosches, the Bushes and Sports Doping”

  1. Maybe no con­nec­tion, but it is inter­est­ing to note that anoth­er chemist named Bosch, Carl Bosch (1874–1940), was one of the founders of I.G. Farbin. Carl won the Nobel in chem­istry in 1931 for his roll in devel­op­ing the Haber Bosch process for cre­at­ing arti­fi­cial fer­til­iz­er.



    I could­n’t find any­thing on his descen­dants.

    Also inter­est­ing to note that “Bosch” means “Bush”.



    Some food for thoughts, grounds for fur­ther research.
