Jeb Bush On The Record

- John Ellis "Jeb" Bush was born February 11, 1953 in Midland, Texas, the second son of former President George H. W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush.

- On Tuesday September 10, Jeb Bush, chairman of the board for the National Constitution Center and former governor of Florida, presented former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (Democrat) with the group’s annual Liberty Medal.

It is hard to understand why Gov. Bush would want to bolster Secretary Clinton’s credentials in such a way. Her actual lifetime accomplishments are so razor thin that an award celebrating her lifetime accomplishments presented by a likely Republican presidential candidate will drastically help her in this regard.

This decision becomes even more questionable on Bush’s part when considering the timing.

The day after the ceremony, 9/11/13, was the first anniversary of the attack on America’s consulate in Benghazi, which many believe could have been avoided had then-Secretary of State Clinton not bungled it so badly. There is still an open investigation regarding her State Department’s gross negligence that possibly led to the death of four Americans in Benghazi that night.

The National Constitution Center’s website has a long profile of Secretary Clinton which tries to provide some reasoning for the decision to give her this award. It is striking to note though, that there are very few, if any, actual accomplishments noted.

It finally praises Clinton for “advocating for universal health care.”

Secretary Clinton’s tireless advocacy for the nationalization of the healthcare industry, one sixth of the American economy, will not be seen as much of an accomplishment after Obamacare wrecks the economy with skyrocketing healthcare costs and severely decreased quality of care.

Clinton playfully joked that the two ex-presidents are “let’s face it, the classic odd couple of American politics.” She said the duo “just had one of their annual play dates up in Kennebunkport,” at the Bush family compound in Maine.

“Jeb and I are not just renewing an American tradition of bipartisanship. We’re keeping up a family tradition as well,” Clinton said.

- From 2004 to 2007, Bush served as a Board Member for the National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB). Created by Congress, the board's purpose is to establish policy on reports examining K-12 students' academic progress in America's public and private schools. Since then Bush's education foundation has advocated for the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

- October 2013 - As Florida education officials concluded three days of public hearings on the Common Core education standards, former Gov. Jeb Bush on Thursday again strongly defended the standards at a national education forum in Boston.

State education officials have started avoiding using the term “Common Core” in describing the standards, which guidelines, designed to help children think more critically, laying out say youngsters across the country should know at each grade.

The Summit ended with a closing keynote by Rahm Emanuel, mayor of Chicago, and former White House chief of staff for President Obama. No need to describe its contents. He is for the Common Core, financed by the Obama administration's "Race to the Top." For Jeb Bush, it gave the Summit a glowing patina of non-partisanship.

- In 1990, Jeb Bush interceded with his father, the president, to pardon Orlando Bosch, a Cuban exile whom Attorney General Dick Thornburgh called an "unrepentant terrorist." Bosch was released from prison and granted residency in the U.S.

- In April 2013, Jeb Bush authored a cover story for Newsmax magazine, arguing that America's entitlement system risked collapse unless there was a course correction in U.S. public policy. Bush touted a six-point plan to restore growth to the economy, including a key plank calling for more legal immigration. "A growth agenda is inextricably linked with a welcoming immigration policy", he wrote.

I Was Told To Spread This Around

Oligarchy: Government by a few, especially by a small faction of persons or families.

For four decades we have had two families in high power positions in Washington: Bushes and Clintons from CIA Director (GHW Bush) to Vice President (GHW Bush) to President (GHW Bush, B. Clinton, GW Bush) to Secretary of State (HR Clinton)!! That sounds like an Oligarchy to me.

If all the sheeple have to choose from is a Bush and Clinton (in their eyes), the Oligarchy continues.

It is time to do anything it takes to stop this Oligarchy from continuing.

thank you for this

We have to be armed with info so we can fact-check the pro-Bush propoganda headed down our throats.

Bump! The Time Has Come.

Christie has likely damaged himself beyond repair. The media will now focus on the new "front runner" Jeb. Get the word out about his record. More dirt needed.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Yep....

Jeb is a loathesome creature. Can't imagine another Boosh getting the nod.

Of course, Hitlery will be put through the wash and spin cycle...she will probably even find Jesus. And, millions and millions will be fooled again.

Let the info war begin....

Experienced federal investigators, acting independently, have discovered a covert funding channel used by the 2000 and 2004 Bush-Cheney campaigns and the administrations of Jeb Bush in Florida and Bob Taft in Ohio to illegally funnel foreign and other questionable money into Republican coffers.

Ever since the brutal death of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) investigator Ray Lemme in July 2003, the focus of investigators in Florida and Georgia has been on the political scandal Lemme was uncovering. After his official investigation of contract fraud, money laundering, illegal immigration, and election fraud was shut down on orders of Jeb Bush, Lemme continued to investigate the use of FDOT to launder cash for the Bush brothers and their allies. Lemme's focus was on the use of the Florida Turnpike system to launder cash for the Jeb and George W. Bush campaigns. It was an investigation that would ultimately lead to Lemme's body being discovered in a motel room bathtub in Valdosta, Georgia. A two-state police cover-up of Lemme's death, threats directed at Florida and Georgia investigators, and a virtual media blackout indicates that the GOP administrations of Jeb Bush and Georgia's Sonny Perdue wanted the Lemme story to go away—and fast.

The reason for the cover-up of Lemme's reported "suicide" is simple. Investigators have now discovered that foreign cash, including Chinese, Saudi, and Nigerian money, was laundered via the biggest state-run cash cow in Florida—the Florida Turnpike system. Because most of the transactions involving Florida's toll roads involve cash and huge amounts of it, it was easy for foreign and other questionable money to be laundered via FDOT.

Lemme had reportedly become aware of the use of FDOT to commit criminal acts. Valdosta, where Lemme went to meet a still unknown source, is a key center for international organized criminal activity, including illegal foreign worker smuggling, involving close political allies of George W. and Jeb Bush.

BUMP!!!

For some reason I have this gut feeling the GOP is choosing Jeb Bush as there pick.

I get that feeling too

From the news today it looks like the MSM are in their process of taking Paul and Christie out. A Bush and Clinton dynasty is what they are shooting for, that's a known and safe commodity for TPTB

Maybe it's just my perception

Maybe it's just my perception, but looking at their records in actions or statements, it all feels like the Bush line can only breed evil political freaks or retards.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Knew it, Jeb is THE GOP PICK

Jeb is who the GOP is gonna run against Hillary. Period.

That's the framework going in.

Rand is gonna make a play and know what? He's not gonna get the nomination. And he'll be left in absolutely no position to lead outside of the GOP.

I'm hoping for something good from LPUS.
