John Ellis Bush Running For President

http://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/story/n...ident/71238556/
QUOTE
Bush campaign theme: I know we can fix the country

MIAMI — Jeb Bush made it official Monday, launching a 2016 presidential campaign that plays up his experience as Florida governor, plays down his family name, and casts himself as a fix-it leader of the future.

"We will take Washington -- the static capital of this dynamic country -- out of the business of causing problems," Bush plans to say in his announcement speech at a Miami college, according to excerpts released by his campaign.

"We will get back on the side of free enterprise and free people," the former Florida governor will say, according to the excerpts. "I know we can fix this. Because I've done it."

Bush, who struggled at times during the run-up to Monday's announcement, also figures to spend part of the campaign arguing that he is a different kind of leader than his presidential father or brother.

From his new campaign logo — "Jeb!" — to the issues he is stressing, Bush's announcement is designed to stress that he is his own person, and answer attacks that have come from conservative Republicans as well as Democrats.

"I will campaign as I would serve," Bush plans to say, "going everywhere, speaking to everyone, keeping my word, facing the issues without flinching, and staying true to what I believe.

"I will take nothing and no one for granted -- I will run with heart -- I will run to win."

Presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush did not attend the campaign kick-off event, though Jeb Bush didn't turn his back on his family. Former first lady Barbara Bush, the candidate's mother, appeared to loud applause, as did siblings Doro and Neil.

In his speech, Bush is likely to echo the themes of a pre-announcement video released by the campaign Sunday. It features four Florida residents discussing Bush state initiatives — school vouchers, small business assistance, aid to the disabled, and programs to battle domestic violence — that the candidate says reflect his approach to government.

"I said I was going to do these things and I did them, and the result was Florida is a lot better off," said Bush, 62, who served as governor from 1999 to 2007.

Education also figures to be a theme for the newest Bush candidacy. He will make his announcement at the Kendall campus of Miami-Dade College, on a gymnasium stage festooned with American flags and "Jeb!" signs.

In case there was any doubt, the Bush team filed legal paperwork just hours before the candidate's speech, setting up an official campaign account with the Federal Election Commission. The official name of the presidential campaign committee: Jeb 2016 Inc.

Jeb is more of a nickname, an acronym of his formal name: John Ellis Bush.

After the formal announcement in Miami, Bush spends the rest of the week touring the key early caucus and primary states of New Hampshire Iowa, and South Carolina,

While Bush is expected to have more money than his Republican opponents, a series of early polls show an unformed race with no clear front-runner.

The exploratory part of Bush's campaign included a number of stumbles. His poll numbers dropped, he shook up his campaign staff, and he struggled to answer questions about the Iraq war launched by President George W. Bush.

Asked about the idea of being "another Bush," the candidate told CNN in a recent interview: "Well, Jeb is different than George, and Jeb is who he is. My life story is different."

The Republican field includes another Floridian and former Bush protege, Sen. Marco Rubio, who welcomed Bush to the race with a statement of friendship.

"When I call Jeb Bush my friend, I mean he is someone I like, care for and respect," Rubio said. "He and I have worked closely together for many years, on issues big and small. He is a passionate advocate for what he believes."

Other senators — Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina — are also running.

Ex-governors Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, Rick Perry of Texas and George Pataki of New York are already in as well. The race is expected to eventually include four other current governors: Scott Walker of Wisconsin, Chris Christie of New Jersey, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and John Kasich of Ohio.

Also seeking the Republican nomination: businesswoman Carly Fiorina and retired surgeon Ben Carson. Businessman Donald Trump is scheduled to announce Tuesday whether he will get in.

Democrats say other Bush policies — from tax cuts for the wealthy to opposition to anti-discrimination legislation — show he favors only the well-off.

"Throughout his career, Jeb Bush has consistently put what is best for himself and those at the top above the priorities of working Americans," said Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., chairwoman of the Democratic Party.

Jeb Bush, a Florida businessman before launching a losing a bid for governor in 1994, came back to win the office in 1998 and 2002.

More than a dozen years after his last political race, Bush faces questions from conservatives about his commitment to their cause. The list of complaints include his support for Common Core education standards and for new immigration rules.

Ari Fleischer, who served as press secretary for President George W. Bush, said Jeb Bush enters the race in the "top tier" of Republican candidates and will likely stay there. Bush has some "vulnerabilities" with Republican grass roots, he said, but will have a chance to address those on the campaign trail.

The Bush family name is both an attribute and a liability for Jeb, Fleischer said, pointing out that George W. Bush remains popular with Republican primary voters.

"All candidates have to stand on their own two feet and prove their own worth," Fleischer said. "Jeb has a chance to do that."

In his campaign announcement, Bush plans to say he will run an "optimistic" campaign because "I am certain that we can make the decades just ahead in America the greatest time ever to be alive in this world."


I am voting for him. Oh yeah. Not because of politics but because it brings us one step closer again to 911 perps.


Jeb Bush Announcement 28'42"


I understand Bush Sr. not attending but it says a lot when W. does not attend the announcement. Never fear because brother Neil attended. The Bush brothers: has there ever been a more corrupt incompetent group of siblings in modern American history? And that is why I want more Bush in the White House. And I'm not talking anymore female interns on the prowl.

I look at the previous Bush administration as a Thanksgiving turkey that has been almost picked to the bone and then put in a refrigerator. With Jeb as president, that turkey now comes out and there is still some more picking left. I take a picked-at turkey and then put the whole carcass in very slightly boiling water for two to three hours and find enough left to use in soup. That is Jeb. Hopefully the fun begins right after the '16 election.

Does it really matter whether Billary or Jeb is president? No. But with Jeb it makes things much more interesting, imo.

Interesting that you are posting this now, because my recent research on Atta and the flight training school led me to none other than good ol' Jeb Bush!

Apparently (need to confirm this) within hours of the 9/11 attacks Jeb Bush was swooping down on the flight school and stripping it of all documents related to Atta. He was Florida Gov. at the time.
If it's true, the question begs to be asked, "How did he know to target this place, and what was the reason?"

QUOTE
At the instigation of Bush Administration officials the Immigration and Naturalization Service is preparing to deport the man whose Venice, FL. flight school served as a magnet for Mohamed Atta's terrorist cadre, effectively placing him beyond the reach of the upcoming 9/11 investigation, the MadCowMorningNews learned.
Rudi Dekkers, who began "marching Arabs across the tarmac" soon after his arrival in 1999 at Huffman Aviation, has run afoul of the Immigration and Naturalization Service for a variety of immigration violations, sources state, including being in the U.S. illegally.

"Wally (Hilliard) and Rudi formed a fictitious company to keep Rudi in the U.S.," explained one aviation observer in Naples. "But the I.N.S. has known about that for years. Something else is going on."
Aviation sources suggest the deportation move by the I.N.S.— widely-accused of having failed to do anything while terrorists roamed freely across U.S. borders— is less a sign of any renewed vigor at a beleaguered federal agency than an Administration effort to curtail the 9/11 investigation by placing Dekkers beyond the reach of questioning.

For the record, a spokesperson speaking for the I.N.S Commissioner would only say, "We do not comment on individuals being removed from this country."
The (acting) I.N.S. Commissioner is Michael Garcia, who headed the terrorism investigation for INS following the 1993 World Trade Center attack.
*************
"What happened to the flight school records? Ask Jeb."

Whatever secrets Dekkers may possess about the terrorists, records from his flight school were deemed sensitive enough to have merited being escorted back to Washington by Florida Governor Jeb Bush aboard a C-130 cargo plane, which left Sarasota less than 24 hours after the September 11 attack.
Many in the South West Florida aviation community have begun to voice the suspicion that ‘Magic Dutch Boy’ Dekkers played a still-unexplained role in the story of the terrorist conspiracy’s time in Florida.
"The I.N.S. is acting to place the prime suspect in a wider-ranging 9/11 conspiracy investigation out of the reach of the Independent Investigation," said one skeptical Naples aviation executive.
"They're getting Rudi out of town fast. And Wally Hilliard is heading out the door right behind him."
This statement is bolstered by records of recent Florida property transactions, which reveal that Rudi Dekkers has, indeed, been liquidating assets including airplanes and a condominium.
*************
'Cashing out' at Huffman Aviation

Now the MadCowMorningNews has learned that 70-year old Wallace J. Hilliard of Naples, FL., multi-millionaire businessman and self-styled Mormon Bishop, is also selling out, peddling Huffman Aviation, the infamous "terror flight school" bought just three years ago.
As if the Venice Airport needed any more "Magic Dutch Boys," the potential buyers represent what one source close to the sale characterized as "two Dutch investors."
As Rudi Dekkers prepares to (hopefully-for-him) slip from sight, many things about him remain mysterious. The biggest unanswered question involves how Dekkers, running a flight school which trained both pilots who flew airplanes into the World Trade Center Towers, and a known fugitive from justice in Holland, managed to end up being invited to testify before the Congress of the United States of America... instead of behind bars.
Why did the FBI and the national media accept at face value (and so eagerly) Dekker's claims to being an innocent victimized businessman? Was Rudi, even in the immediate aftermath of September 11, somehow being protected?
"When the FBI came down the day after Sept. 11, it totally amazed me that they took everything Rudi said as the truth," said Sue DeAngelis, Dekkers’ former office manager, who let FBI agents in at Huffman Aviation when they arrived in the middle of the night.
Perhaps the answer is that Dekkers was already well-known in certain circles. A startling number of federal agencies, the MadCowMorningNews has learned exclusively, have files on Dekker's going back a decade.

And what was the Emergency that occurred on September 7th 2001? I surmise that Jeb just forgot the part of the meeting when they said "in a few days time,,,"

Very good. Not many people outside 911 research know about Martial Law story.

I would like this thread to contain all things Jeb at least until Election Day. I have waited for yesterday for awhile. Who will the neocons prefer in 17 months? Putting another Bush in the White House smacks of arrogance but in this case I am going to enjoy it.

Truth, you CAN'T be serious! You would vote Jeb Bush in? How, in Heaven's name, will that help ANYTHING? Jeb Bush is interested in repealing what Congress did (very ineffectual, but something) to RE-regulate banking. Jeb said he would deregulate. Banking is what he's talking about, he'll do ALL he can to help the banking industry repeat what they did in 2007, which was steal taxpayers money. GUARANTEED! Listen, friend, if Bush gets in there, we truly deserve exactly what he will give us.

Exactly. After all what the Bushes did I would find voting for any of them seem being a purest insanity and anybody who would do deservers exactly what the one gets - being a sheep led sooner or later to a slaughter.

What does this even mean? Are you thinking the news media will get another crack at 9/11 with Jeb as president?

That's just not going to happen. The corporate media's charter is not to investigate, inform and educate a God fearing nation.
They're job is to maintain the status quo. George Carlin made an insightful statement when asked about 9/11. "They just don't like to investigate themselves."

Of course it does. Noam Chomsky said picking the lesser of the two evils still results in less evil.

http://www.truthdig.com/avbooth/item/20081...lesser_of_two_e

I'm supporting the Socialist Bernie Sanders because his values not only line up with with mine but also the vast majority of the American public.
If Hillary is the nominee, I'll vote again for the Green party since I don't live in a swing state.

Controversy! Hillary= Jeb. One of those two will be president. Lesser of two evils? They are both evil. Of course nothing will change, no matter WHO is president.

With Jeb we now get the chance to have someone involved in 911. I realize the media won't do anything. I ain't no dummy. But Jeb is. Do anyone actually believe anyone other than HillaBush will be president?

Those that do evil almost always repeat themselves. And then they get caught. We here know what has happened the last 14 years. The rest are gradually catching up to us. With PNACer Jeb as president he is going to be followed every second by us. The same cronies are going to be back in action. Some will be on the sideline but they still will be calling the shots. Believe it or not, having Jeb as president may be a gift to us because their arrogance is going to backfire one time.

I was naive and voted for Obama thinking that he may call for a new independent investigation. You can see how that turned out. The new boss same as the old boss. Having Jeb brings all the evildoers back into the spotlight.

In summary, no matter who is president, the same crap will continue. I am hoping the fall of the perps happens while Jeb is president. It may be our best chance.

A little something concerning Jeb's brother. Please watch the embedded video. I try and do in my area what this guy did in Houston. Kudos to people who confront the perps.

I wouldn't write Sanders off like the media desperately want you to do. His message is resonating with a frustrated electorate - people like you. They're angry that Obama governed like a Republican and see Hillary in the same light; a centrist, closeted neo-con in bed with Wall Street. If all those people turn out for the primaries, it could be another 2008 for Clinton.

Having said that, even if Sanders is elected, there is not going to be a "reopening" of an investigation into 9/11 but you can dream on if you want to. And my dream is to have actress, comedian and activist, Janeane Garofalo as a girl friend which is just as likely.

I respect your opinion. But you have not followed the political scene since Reagan. My strong suit is the political scene since '80. I don't 'dream on'. Garafola? Good sense of humor. I'll agree with you on that. Tina Fey would be alright as well.

It comes down to Hillary or Jeb. The rest are pretenders. It just comes down to who the neocon agenda feels fits the bill. The neocons are very satisfied with Obama as you can tell since '09. The next president will continue the agenda.

Jeb PAC Donors
https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2015/06/...da-republicans/
QUOTE
A PREVIEW OF JEB BUSH’S SUPER PAC DONORS: TITANS, TYCOONS AND LOBBYISTS

Former Gov. Jeb Bush has spent much of the year raising money for his Super PAC, called Right to Rise, without disclosing his donors.

He doesn’t have to — Bush’s Super PAC and traditional PAC are on a semi-annual reporting timeline, meaning they have until mid-July to file public campaign finance reports. Clues from a variety of sources, however, provide a preview of his donors, who include major leaders in technology, business and lobbying.

Agents for foreign governments fall under special transparency rules, meaning several have already had to disclose their donations in filings with the Justice Department. Ignacio Sanchez, a former trade official for President George W. Bush, is a lobbyist for Saudi Arabia. Sanchez gave $5,000 to Right to Rise on February 17, the same day that George Salem, another lobbyist retained by the Saudi government to influence American policy, gave the group $10,000. A day later, former Sen. Don Nickles, R-Ok., now a lobbyist for Wal-Mart, ExxonMobil, Taiwan and the Republic of Korea, among other clients, gave $5,000 to Right to Rise.

Glenn Youngkin, managing director of the Carlyle Group, the investment firm that owns Booz Allen Hamilton, gave $10,000, according to a disclosure statement posted on the company’s website. Because Carlyle manages pension fund money, the company faces special campaign finance requirements.

Although Bush has not named the donors giving to his PACs, certain donors, including state-level PACs, are obligated to disclose on a different schedule. These disclosures show that Florida politicians have dipped into their own campaign funds to support Right to Rise. The Florida Conservative Leadership Fund, associated with state Rep. Dana Young, R-Tampa, gave $5,000 to Bush’s Super PAC in February. Among other Florida PACs, Growing Florida’s Future chipped in $25,000, Liberty Florida gave $5,000, and the Treasure Coast PAC gave $1,000.

Right to Rise donors also include longtime Republican moneymen in Florida like Mel Sembler, a real estate tycoon who fundraised for Jeb’s father and brother, and is also known for bankrolling anti-marijuana advocacy.

Right to Rise events provide another way of identifying Super PAC donors — through their hosts. Right to Rise has held fundraisers, with some asking for as much as $100,000 at the door, at a breakneck speed. In New York, private equity heavyweights Lewis Eisenberg and Henry Kravis sponsored a fundraising dinner for Bush. In the Bay Area, venture capitalists Bill Oberndorf and Bill Draper have hosted Right to Rise events. At the Right to Rise’s luncheon in San Francisco in early April, we identified Ron Conway, an investor to Twitter and Facebook, making his way into the event.

A major fundraiser in Washington, D.C., was hosted in part by a number of corporate lobbyists, including Microsoft’s Ed Ingle and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Tom Collamore, according to an invitation. The Sunlight Foundation hosts an invaluable database of such invitations.

Right to Rise’s July campaign report will also reveal how the committee has spent its funds.

Filings from the Federal Election Commission already point to an aggressive attempt by Bush to share the wealth with influential Republican politicians, some of whom are likely being courted for campaign endorsements. FEC disclosures show that the Right to Rise PAC has given at least $5,000 each to PACs supporting Reps. David Young, R-Iowa, Frank Guinta, R-N.H., Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y, , John Katko, R-N.Y., Martha McSally, R-Ariz., Barbara Comstock, R-Va., Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., Crescent Hardy, R-Nev., and Mike Simpson, R-Idaho. In February, Politico reported that Right to Rise also gave $120,000 to various GOP state committees, including state party funds for early primary states such as Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada and Florida.

When the full data is released in July, some expect the entire haul to rise to as much as $100 million. But Bush, who will reportedly announce his candidacy on June 15, also maintains a 501©(4) campaign entity also known as Right to Rise. This vehicle allows sensitive donors to give unlimited amounts to Bush’s campaign without ever being disclosed.


The whole idea of this thread is to track a 911 perp in real time for the next 17 months. Post anything about Jeb concerning his time as governor, his presidential campaign, his personal life and friends, etc.

Ten Ways Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush Are Basically the Same Presidential Candidate

June 17

Now that Jeb Bush has officially announced his intention to run for president in 2016, the most corporate-funded presidential election in history is set to begin, headed by two prospective frontrunners with eerily familiar names. It’s Bush versus Clinton—again! With third party candidates certain to be relegated to back alleys, we see, yet again, two of the prized families of the great American oligarchy being trotted out as namesake party spokesmen and women. Their purpose: to create manufactured consent for a failed two-party system while furthering a pre-scripted, nationalist, and corporatist narrative.

Are there some differences between Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush? Absolutely. Women’s rights are up there on the list, as Jeb Bush has an appalling history in that realm. While we are sensitive to the reality of Supreme Court nominees and the politics of personal identity, there can be no delusion that the most toxic dangers to our country are large sweeping economic and geopolitical doctrines that consolidate wealth into the hands of the rich elite, who promulgate wars abroad. Even on issues like the environment, while Clinton has a better record than Jeb, her support of corporations and trade agreements that derail environmental progress completely cancels out her hollow sound bytes about renewable energy.

The two candidates are almost identical on the major issues poisoning our republic.

1. They both have blatantly corrupt corporate ties

Like virtually all mainstream politicians in Congress, both Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are beholden to corporations. This goes beyond simply receiving campaign funds from super PACs. We’re talking the marriage of corporate interests with the government’s foreign and domestic policies, from the military industrial complex to Big Pharma and “too big to fail” financial institutions. As we work our way down the list, corrupt corporate ties will resurface, but for now, let’s simply list these two politicians’ major corporate ties.

Jeb Bush has actually consulted 15 companies, seven of them for-profits: InnoVida Holdings, for which Bush was a board member and consultant, paid him $15,000 a month before collapsing into fraud and bankruptcy (the company’s CEO, Claudio Osorio, is serving 12½ years in prison); five of the companies for which Bush served on the board (or as adviser) have faced class action lawsuits. Some of these cases are ongoing and involve fraud or environmental damage.

Hillary Clinton’s corporate ties include her six-year stint as director of Wal-Mart, during which time the company aggressively fought to destroy union activity. In more recent times, Hillary showed her colors most spectacularly by hiring a former Monsanto lobbyist to run her campaign. She is also exceedingly cozy with some of the more corrupt Wall Street entities, which we’ll get into later. For now, suffice it to note that the Clinton Foundation has received donations of anywhere from $250,000 to $5 million from Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, and Bank of America.

2. They are both major war hawks

In today’s America, anyone elected president who doesn’t want to go the way of John F. Kennedy has to serve the interests of the military-industrial complex. Even ostensibly non-hawkish presidents like Barack Obama (who won a Nobel Peace Prize shortly before authorizing military drone strikes that have killed almost 2,500 people) must keep the war machine going.

Hillary Clinton doesn’t even try to disguise her support for on-going war. Her complete embrace of what The Nation calls “destructive nationalist myths” has earned her the label of a “war hawk”. The moniker is well-deserved. She was a vocal supporter of the second Iraq War in 2003, despite the lack of clear evidence that military action was necessary (and, of course, we now know that the entire justification was a completely manufactured web of lies bent on taking advantage of the fear people felt after 9/11). She also supported military strikes on Afghanistan. These two wars took the lives of 174,000 civilians.

Despite finally admitting her vote for war was a mistake, Hillary has not lessened her push for war. As Secretary of State, she was instrumental in facilitating the use of U.S. airpower to decimate Libya. She then did virtually the same thing in Syria. “The results have been anarchy, sectarian conflict and opportunities for Islamist extremists that have destabilized the entire region,” The Nation observed.

Jeb Bush, of course, supported all of the aforementioned wars and military actions with extreme bravado, then had the extra audacity to claim everything had gone decently in Iraq until Obama ebbed the surge. Hisrevisionism and whitewashing over the decimation of Arab nations post-9/11 is nothing short of pathological.

3. They both support the Patriot Act and NSA mass surveillance

Both Clinton and Bush supported the Patriot Act from the day it was secretly drafted, only days after 9/11. They both voted for its reauthorization in 2006.

This unconstitutional bill granted the government unprecedented powers of civilian detainment, as well as access to private data. When the FISA laws were updated by the Patriot Act, programs like PRISM enabled the NSA to collect millions of phone records from Americans with no suspected ties to terrorism.

Hillary Clinton has expressed concern over privacy issues, but when she has had the chance to take a real stand on them, she has consistently avoided doing so. Meanwhile, Jeb Bush applauded President Obama’s expansion of NSA surveillance, proclaiming: “I would say the best part of the Obama administration would be his continuance of the protections of the homeland using the big metadata programs, the NSA being enhanced.”

Fret no more, cynics of the American political system. When it comes to the erosion of civil liberties, bipartisanship is still possible.

4. They both support fracking

This one may strike some as surprising considering Hillary Clinton has a fairly good record (maybe a C+) on environmental issues. Unfortunately, the fact is that both candidates support hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” a practice used by oil and energy companies to extract gas and oil from shale rock by directing a high pressure stream of water, sand, and chemicals underground. The practice wastes incredible amounts of water and may contaminate groundwater with carcinogenic chemicals. Recent studies have also shown that fracking causes earthquakes in normally stable regions.

During a keynote speech at the National Clean Energy Summit, Clinton made it clear she wanted strong regulations on fracking, but as Secretary of State, she was responsible for promoting the practice in countries like Bulgaria, which are unlikely to enforce regulations. As it is, fracking is barely regulated in the United States.

5. They both support the Drug War

Hillary Clinton has been very vague—even evasive—about her stance on the Drug War. She supports the use of medical marijuana in some cases but has consistently spoken out against the decriminalization of marijuana, particularly in the lead-up to the 2008 election. She also made a mind-numbingly strange remark in regard to the black market trade, saying drugs couldn’t be legalized because “there’s too much money in it.”

Jeb Bush has virtually the same history and position: support for marijuana use in extreme medical cases but absolutely no support for decriminalization. When push came to shove on an actual ballot initiative, Bush lent his support to opponents of a legalization bill.

Meanwhile, $3.6 billion is spent each year busting and prosecuting people for pot possession, ruining lives and families over a natural herb that has never caused a death. With black people four times as likely to be arrested over marijuana, the issue is a socio-political travesty.

6. They both aggressively support big banks and bailing them out

Unfortunately, despite the fact that their reckless derivatives trading nearly caused a complete global economic collapse, big banks and financial institutions have the complete support of both Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.

Interestingly, if you remember Bill Clinton’s presidency, you may consider that it was his move to dismantle the Glass-Steagall Act, undoing the regulation of derivatives. His henchman on the repeal was former Goldman Sachs CEO Robert Rubin. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Hillary Clinton has repeatedly signaled she will not change course on financial regulation. In fact, in 2013, Goldman Sachs paid her $400,000 for a speech in which she said that progressives and their anti-Wall Street rhetoric are “foolish.”

Meanwhile, the Bush family has a long and sickening history of colluding with big banks, starting with George H.W. Bush running a deregulation task force with a former Merrill Lynch CEO. The lax policy of bailing out banks has continued unabated. Jeb Bush is on record as a huge supporter of bailouts for the Big Six banks that collectively rig our economic system.

Any disagreement between Hillary and Jeb over this issue during the debates will be for show only—they are both puppets on strings when it comes to the banks.

7. They both support Monsanto and GMOs

This one is fairly obvious, seeing as Clinton hired a Monsanto lobbyist to run her campaign. She’s also a supporter of GMOs, which some evidence shows could be harmful to humans yet are found in the vast majority of the American food supply. Jeb Bush is also a GMO supporter and even opposes GMO labeling. Clinton has been unclear on her position on labeling but supports the idea of selling the whole idea to the public in a different context. During a speech, she openly brainstormed ways to use different kinds of propagandistic rhetoric—such as “drought-resistant” instead of “genetically modified.”

The support both candidates lend to Monsanto is deeply troubling as the multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation has monopolized the seed and food supply across the world withherbicidal and pesticidal toxins. They also use heavy-handed legal tactics and litigation to force local farmers to comply, even to the detriment to their communities.

8. They will both spend billions on the upcoming election

Hillary Clinton has openly stated her goal of raising $2.5 billion for her upcoming presidential campaign. To put that in perspective, in 2012, Obama and Romney combined spent over $2 billion, which is bad enough.

Jeb Bush and the GOP will, of course, match or surpass this number, which means the 2016 presidential election could cost $5 billion dollars. Meanwhile, most Americans are in debt and 14.5% of the nation—45.3 million people—live in poverty.

With super PACs and Citizens United allowing for a virtually unrestricted flow of corporate money into our elections, we are now seeing the full effects of a corporatocracy running our “representative democracy.”

9. They both support the secretive and dangerous TPP agreement

Though initially voicing her support for the ominous trade deal at least 45 times while Secretary of State, Hillary has backed off of her support for the TPP now that it’s become politically advantageous. Basically, she is still politically flip-flopping and will likely continue to do so a through the election.

Given that Clinton was a gung-ho supporter of NAFTA (an agreement that is almost universally agreed upon as being responsible for millions of jobs lost and higher income inequality), it is highly unlikely she will take a stand against TPP. If passed, it would essentially allow corporations to decide trade laws in private tribunals and strip down both worker’s rights and environmental protections. To her credit, Hillary has voiced concerns—and if she reverses course, I will be the first to gladly eat my own words.

Meanwhile, Jeb Bush openly supports the agreement, which, one shouldn’t forget, is so pernicious it was kept secret for years. We only know about it because of a WikiLeaks cable. Bush once said, “We must push privatization [of government] in every area where privatization is possible.” TPP would accomplish that with extreme measures.

10. They both support the death penalty

This one may be surprising as well. Not for Jeb Bush, as he is a proud executioner. This was especially true in his earlier days, before he leaned back to the center of political posturing. He once clearly stated his plans on the death penalty: “I want to accelerate, not slow down, the enforcement of the death penalty in Florida.”

In her earlier years as a constitutional lawyer, Clinton fought against the death penalty and the corrupt criminal justice system. In more recent years, she has lent it her “unenthusiastic support.” We will see if she hedges on this in the primaries, where she will face staunch death penalty opponent, Bernie Sanders.

A Horrific Bush Suck-Up Article:

QUOTE
Jeb appears worthy to assume Bush mantel

By Kathleen Parker | June 17, 2015

If anyone should be feeling an overwhelming sense of Groundhog Day this presidential election, c'est moi

Frankly, I've been covering Bushes for so long, I feel like I ought to be parachuting out of airplanes. In fact, the arc of my career parallels the so-called Bush Dynasty, beginning in 1980 when I was a young reporter for the Charleston (S.C.) Evening Post.

That was the first year South Carolina held a Republican presidential primary and it's been the "First in the South" ever since.

Recognizing the historic importance of the 1980 race, my paper's editors split the state into east and west and assigned two reporters to cover the terrain. The other reporter was a classic from central casting - a chain-smoking political veteran aptly named Jack Roach.

Taking off in different directions, we traversed the state, filing three columns a week - on typewriters, with no spellcheck I might add.

Memorably, I found myself one night in a Charleston hotel room with Ronald and Nancy Reagan. I don't recall how I got there, but I was pretty good at wiggling into places I didn't belong, probably because I looked about 12 years old. Though my intent was to interview Reagan, my confidence was rendered null by my having to explain to the future president that my parents didn't need to know where I was.

This may also explain why my favorite of the bunch was George H.W. Bush, who was courtly, kind, handsome and, most important, treated me as if I were his equal. This was more than a paternal gesture but spoke to his quality, character and class - the thread that runs through my nearly 30 years' exposure to and experience with the Bush family.

By the time the senior Bush became president in 1988, I was writing a different sort of column, more lifestyle than politics, and was busy with motherhood. But his defeat four years later by Bill Clinton, thanks largely to the chart-happy vote siphon Ross Perot, signaled a turning point in American culture and, therefore, in my column and my politics.

Lifestyle and politics suddenly collided.

After the national trauma of the Clinton years, during which mothers like me were forced to shield our children from the president's deeds, it was a relief to see George W. and Laura Bush move into the White House. If nothing else was certain, at least no one would have to worry about blue dresses, knee pads and cigars.

I became familiar with these Bushes, as their years in office coincided with my own migration to Washington.

I remember a comment George W. Bush made to me during a one-on-one, in-flight interview. He said the toughest moment of his life wasn't what to do after 9/11 but seeing his father - "this fine, fine man" - defeated by Clinton. I thought for a moment he might cry, but of course he wouldn't.

I also got to know Laura Bush when she invited Greta Van Susteren and me to travel with her to the Middle East to launch a breast cancer awareness program in four countries.

People say you can learn about a person's character by playing golf with them. The same is true about traveling together, especially under challenging conditions. It wasn't like dodging bullets in Bosnia, mind you, but sharing close quarters with Secret Service snipers provides its own sort of bonding tension.

More to the point, observing Laura Bush navigate the uber-man's world of the Middle East - putting kings and sheikhs at ease while lifting terrified women from despair by her reassuring presence - was inspiring. Mrs. Bush didn't get as much recognition for her efforts on this side of the world as she deserved, but seeking such attention was never her point.

And now comes Jeb.

Though I've not met him, I formed an impression about Jeb Bush during the 2012 Republican Convention in Tampa, Fla., when I heard him speak at a small reception. Predisposed neither to like nor dislike him, I was immediately impressed. Without notes, he was eloquent, thoughtful, fluent in policy yet plainspoken, accessible and utterly free of artifice or guile. I remember thinking at the time: If the American people could hear him, they would like him.

They finally got to hear him Monday as he launched his presidential campaign. We'll soon know whether my instincts were right. As to the dynasty question, Bush settled the issue, indirectly and cleverly: "The presidency," he said, "shouldn't be passed on from one liberal to the next."

Classy. And the real point, after all.

Parker's email address is kathleenparker@washpost.com.


I have covering the Bushes since 1980 election. I have no idea what Bushes she has been covering.
