– How Jeb Bush’s Recent Speech Bashing Lobbyists Was Organized by Lobbyists (Liberty Blitzkrieg, July 22, 2015):
Last week, the Clinton, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio campaigns filed reports with the Federal Election Commission to list their lobbyist bundlers, revealing that all three have relied on Akin Gump for campaign cash. In Clinton’s case, her campaign not only used Akin Gump lobbyists as bundlers, but the Clinton campaign treasurer, Jose H. Villarreal, works for Akin Gump’s lobbying division, though he is not registered as a lobbyist. In addition, former Sen. John Sununu, R-N.H., who is now employed by Akin Gump, has been tapped to raise money for the presidential campaign of Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio, who kicked off his candidacy on Tuesday.“As a result of the breadth and depth of our experience and relationships, our firm is well positioned to represent its clients — regardless of which party controls the legislative or executive branch,” boasts the Akin Gump website, touting the firm’s lobbying practice.
– From the Intercept article: Lobbyists Fundraising for Clinton, Bush, Rubio and Kasich Are Coworkers
The most amusing aspect of the run-up the 2016 U.S. Presidential election is to watch establishment Democrat and Republican candidates scramble to reinvent themselves to fit the dramatically changed political environment. While a sizable portion of the American public remains clueless about virtually everything happening the world around them, enough people have woken up to the disastrous fraud that is the two-party political system and they’ve had enough. As a result, you see establishment clowns like Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush scramble to pretend to be outsiders when they are the consummate insiders. Naturally, this is impossible and watching them flail and flounder like fish out of water is extremely gratifying.

– White House Contenders Trump, Bush In Virtual Dead Heat: Reuters/Ipsos Poll (Internation Business Times, July 11, 2015):
Donald Trump, who became the center of attention in the race for the 2016 Republican U.S. presidential nomination with his denunciation of illegal immigrants from Mexico, has vaulted into a virtual dead heat with Jeb Bush atop the field, a Reuters-Ipsos poll released on Saturday showed.
Trump, a billionaire real estate developer, had the support of 15.8 percent of respondents in the online poll of self-identified Republicans compared to 16.1 percent for Bush, a former Florida governor.
– The Bush Family Goes “All In” For Number Three (With The Help Of Its Bankers) (ZeroHedge, June 28, 2015):
Money, they say, makes the world go round. So how’s $10 billion for you? That’s a top-end estimate for the record-breaking spending in this 1% presidential election campaign season. But is “season” even the right word, now that such campaigns are essentially four-year events that seem always to be underway? In a political world stuffed with money, it’s little wonder that the campaign season floats on a sea of donations. In the case of Jeb Bush, he and his advisers have so far had a laser-focus on the electorate they felt mattered most: big donors. They held off the announcement of his candidacy until last week (though he clearly long knew he was running) so that they could blast out of the gates, dollars-wise, leaving the competition in their financial dust, before the exceedingly modest limits to non-super PAC campaign fundraising kicked in.
– Jeb Bush’s Deep Love Affair with Lobbyists and Cronyism While Governor of Florida Exposed (Liberty Blitzkrieg, June 24, 2015):
In September 2006, with real estate prices in free fall and panic seizing much of the state’s economy, Bush and state officials were debating the merits of a proposed $50 million purchase of forest and wetlands near Orlando, Florida, to protect it from possible future development. The land under consideration was called “Joshua Creek.” It was owned by a developer called Land South Hunters, which was itself an affiliate of Land South Holdings, a company that enjoyed the labors of a well-connected lobbyist in Tallahassee — Rancourt of the Southern Strategy Group.
Bush voiced concerns that the state was paying far too much at a time in which Florida real estate values were plummeting. “I get emotional when a guy a year ago bought something for $32 million and wants to sell it to us for $50 [million],” said Bush, according to minutes from the meeting. “The worm has turned on real estate prices. Every article in the paper, every paper is writing about it. And I just do not believe that we should necessarily be the purchaser that always shows up with the big number.”
– Putin is a ‘bully,’ U.S. needs to respond resolutely: Jeb Bush (Reuters, June 10, 2015):
Likely Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said on Wednesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin was a “bully” and the United States and its allies in Europe should be resolute in responding to Russian aggression.

– Emails Show Jeb Bush Coordinated With Florida Legislature for Favorable Primary Date (The Intercept, March 23, 2015):
mails obtained by The Intercept via a public records request reveal Jeb Bush closely coordinating with the Florida legislature to schedule Florida’s 2016 presidential primary in a way most favorable for Bush.
State Representative Matt Gaetz wrote to Bush on January 2 that he is “concerned that Florida’s current primary date will lead to proportional allocation of delegates” and that a “winner take all” system would be preferable.
– As Jeb Bush Pounces On The Hillary Email Scandal, The Real Winner Is… Goldman Sachs (ZeroHedge, March 3, 2015):
While the Clintons have had their share of funding snafus in recent history exposing the former “not truly well off” first lady as not only a puppet of not only Wall Street but also America’s mega corporations, Hillary Clinton’s use of personal email accounts as America’s former top diplomat is a far more serious issue as it touches directly on accountability, and rational decision-making while in a top position of government power. To say that it impairs her image as a presidential candidate who puts the country ahead of her own interests, would be an understatement.
– Jeb Bush Forced to Bus Supporters From Washington D.C. to CPAC as Attendees Walk Out On Him (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Feb 27, 2015):
It sounds like Jeb Bush’s supporters are taking CPAC pretty seriously this year. Emails provided to Slate show that backers of the former Florida governor are busing supporters from downtown Washington D.C. to CPAC in National Harbor, Maryland, and organizing to get them day passes into the event.One long-time CPAC insider said these organized efforts impressed him, and that he didn’t know of any other potential 2016 candidates busing backers in. Perhaps that’s because no other potential candidates are worried about the regular crowd turning against them—the Washington Times reports today that some CPAC attendees are planning “to stage an informal protest when he hits the stage.”
– From the Slate article: Jeb Bush Backers Are Busing Supporters From K Street to CPAC
I mean it just doesn’t get much more pathetic than this. Jeb Bush has such little genuine support, he was forced to bus in supporters from ground zero of American cronyism, K Street in Washington D.C., in order to ensure phony applause at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
What else would you expect from a candidate so awful only a corporate lobbyists could love him…and believe me, they do.
Hayden, Ridge, Wolfowitz, Zoellick and Chertoff?
Maybe he should resurrect Darth Cheney as Vice President …
– Jeb Bush’s foreign policy team is eerily familiar, in one Venn diagram (Washington Post, Feb 18, 2015):
Former Florida governor Jeb Bush will announce his foreign policy vision in a speech Wednesday in Chicago. Accompanying that speech is a rollout of a slate of experts who will help guide the candidate on foreign policy issues.If Bush’s goal is to present himself as his “own man,” that list of advisers undermines the point somewhat: 19 of the 21 people on it worked in the administrations of his father or brother. We’ve identified the roles each played in the past three Republican administrations, divvying them up as needed in the following Venn diagram.

– Jeb Bush Exposed Part 2 – He Thinks Unconstitutional NSA Spying is “Hugely Important” (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Feb 19, 2015):
In some ways I’m actually looking forward to the imperial spectacle that will be the Jeb Bush vs. Hilary Clinton Presidential contest in 2016. Just like an alcoholic or drug addict is often unable to shake the cycle of addiction until hitting rock bottom, so too it seems the American peasantry must hit political rock bottom before becoming fed up enough to do something about it; and I can’t imagine a more odious, absurd scenario than being forced to chose between another Bush and another Clinton.
I’ve given Hilary a lot of grief here at Liberty Blitzkrieg, primarily because she’s an oligarch coddling embarrassment (links at the end). Jeb Bush hasn’t received the same treatment as of yet, but I’m going to do my best to make up for lost time.
Jeb Bush vs Hillary Clinton?
Good luck America!
– Jeb Bush Resigns All Board Memberships, Showing 2016 Presidential Run Is Increasingly Likely (International Business Times, Jan 1, 2015):
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s office announced Wednesday that he has resigned from all of his corporate and nonprofit board memberships, effective Dec. 31, ahead of what seems like an increasingly likely presidential bid in 2016.
The disclosure, which came in an email from a Bush aide to the Washington Post, also revealed that Bush is reviewing his involvement in other businesses in which he is a principal or part owner, including consulting firm Jeb Bush & Associates, and Britton Hill Partnership, a business advisory group.
Hillary against Jeb Bush in 2016?
Wow, what a prospect!
– Bush clan rallies support for Jeb’s expected presidential run in 2016 (RT, Oct 27, 2014):
Will the White House soon host another President Bush? According to family members, Jeb Bush — a son of former president George H.W. Bush and the brother of the current president’s predecessor, George W. Bush — is eyeing the oval office.
With the 2016 presidential election now nearly just two years away, potential candidates are becoming increasingly pressured to announce once and for all if they’re willing to throw their hat into the race. Former Florida governor Jeb Bush has long been rumored to be considering a run in 2016 under the Republican Party ticket which, if successful, would make him the third Bush to win a presidential election in 30 years. Now, two of his sons are lending credence to those rumors by telling the media that the odds are better than ever that Jeb Bush will run in 2016.
– Jeb Bush to Present the “Liberty Medal” to Hillary Clinton (Liberty Blitzkrieg, June 27, 2013):
Yes folks this is really happening. Don’t you just love how these crony crooks give awards to each other while the vast majority of the population can’t stand the sight of them? So not only is Jeb Bush set to present the 2013 “Liberty Metal” to Hilary Clinton, but apparently Jeb Bush is also Chairman of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia! In an article that gives anything The Onion has ever published a run for their money, we find out that:
Hillary Rodham Clinton will receive the 2013 Liberty Medal at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. Jeb Bush, the chairman of the Constitution Center, will present the award to Clinton at a ceremony scheduled for Sept. 10.
Both Clinton and Bush are potential contenders in the 2016 presidential elections, for opposing parties. But in a statement, the GOP’s Bush only accentuated the positive.
