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.

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.

The Bush Family Goes “All In” For Number Three (With The Help Of Its Bankers)

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.”
