As the 2016 presidential election approaches media speculation, propaganda, and misinformation spikes as alleged pundits and experts begin to prepare the masses for the next presidential election. What better strategy to involve the herds and engender controversy than recreating a Clinton Versus Bush rivalry. The Clintons will be represented by Hillary Rodham Clinton a Democrat who was severely shafted and betrayed in the election of 2008 by the global and corporate money masters who pick and elect presidents. Clinton’s rival would be John Ellis Bush known and promoted in the media circles as JEB to conjure up a biblical elixir that will penetrate the blood brain barrier of the Christian right who will wholeheartedly support him and automatically elect him when he runs. This group will consist of almost 35% percent of the popular vote, which means, that JEB will only need 16 additional percentage points to easily win the next 2016 presidential election.
Who is JEB?
John Ellis Bus is the son of George Walker Herbert Bush, the brother of George W Bush, and the previous Florida governor. John Ellis “Jeb” Bush (born February 11, 1953) served as the43rd Governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007. He is the second son of former President George H. W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush, and is the younger brother of former President George W. Bush. Jeb Bush is the first and only Republican to serve two full four-year terms as Governor of Florida.
Bush grew up in Houston, Texas. He attended the University of Texas, where he earned a degree in Latin American affairs. Following his father’s successful run for Vice President in 1980, he moved to Florida. In 1986, Bush was named Florida’s Secretary of Commerce, a position he held until resigning in 1988 to help his father’s successful campaign for the Presidency.
In 1994, Bush made his first run for office, narrowly losing the election for governor by less than two percentage points to the incumbent Lawton Chiles. Bush ran again in 1998 and beat Lieutenant Governor Buddy MacKay with 55 percent of the vote. He ran for reelection in 2002, and won with 56 percent, to become Florida’s first two-term Republican Governor. During his eight years as governor, Bush was credited with initiating improvements in the economy, environment, and health care, as well as reforming the education system. He was also responsible for ending the Florida high speed rail initiative. In 1995, Bush also converted from Anglicanism to Catholicism.
American neoconservatives appear to be positive about JEB, seeing him as committed to upholding whatever conservative principles they might contrive to manipulate the masses, just as his father and older brother did before him. Bar none, JEB Bush is and will be the Christian Fundamentalists’ primary presidential candidate.
Who is HRC?
Hillary Rodham Clinton, born on October 26, 1947 is a former United States Secretary of State,U.S. Senator, and First Lady of the United States. From 2009 to 2013, she was the 67th Secretary of State, serving under President Barack Obama. She previously represented New York in the U.S. Senate (2001 to 2009). Before that, as the wife of President Bill Clinton, she was First Lady from 1993 to 2001. In the 2008 election, Clinton was a leading candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination but was burned by the elite who deliberately chose an unknown black candidate for the presidency leaving her and her husband empty handed, and giving the public the illusion that by electing a black president racism would be eradicated in the most racist nation on the planet. Hillary and her husband the previous president Bill Clinton have been plagued by a barrage of scandals throughout their public life. Hillary will be an easy target for Republicans to attack. As a secretary of state she was blamed for mishandling many situations in the Obama White House, including the Benghazi disaster. In addition, there are many questions surrounding her health.
Media preparation for 2016:
As expected, the global media embodied in the misinformation networks began this year their propaganda campaign to arouse public interest in the prospective election and to attempt to mobilize the herds by giving them the impression that Democracy is at work. Many of the networks have started dialogues discussing or trashing Hillary’s run for another presidential election, either to appeal to her vanity, foment controversy, or rally women voters while constructing the illusion of a democratic election. If uncovered, blatant prearranged elections will definitely turn people off, even though, the public remain oblivious to the reality of their two parties not realizing that in every election the viable candidates have always been pre-chosen by the by elite.
The media buzz:
According to the Associated Press, Hillary Clinton insists that she hasn’t decided on a second bid for the presidency, but seems to be laying out more reasons to run than not during her coast-to-coast book tour.6 However, the Republicans’ inquiry into the deadly raid in Benghazi emboldens her, she says. She knows how not to run a campaign after losing the 2008 Democratic nomination to Barack Obama. And she’d be doing something for the women and girls she felt she let down that year, and perhaps, she suggests, be more effective in the struggle by both parties to get gender politics right. “We live with a double standard,” Clinton told ABC News as she kicked off a tour for “Hard Choices,” her memoir. “People ought to think about their own daughters, their own sisters, their own mothers, when they make comments about women in public life.”6
Moreover, Luce of the Financial Times announced in his editorial column that in age of plutocracy what could be more fitting than a dynastic contest for the white house? If either Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush becomes their party’s 2016 nominee, it would be the seventh out of the past 10 US presidential elections with a Clinton or Bush on the ballot.7 He added that the cynical view is not always the right one. The problem with plutocracy is that it is unmeritocratic. But in each case, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Bush are by far their party’s most qualified candidates.7
Furthermore, the Associated Press has also announced that in a highly choreographed appearances and interviews, Clinton is making quite clear that she already has given serious consideration to running for president, again. She has a ready-made network of supporters and fundraisers and, unlike in 2008, no real competition for the Democratic nomination.6
Meanwhile, USA today declared that politics will be friendlier for women in 2016, and added that in an interview on Monday June 9, 2014, about her new book “Hard Choices” Hillary Rodham Clinton stated that women running for president in 2016 (whether her or someone else) would encounter a different and friendlier political landscape than she did in 2008. Clinton added in her interview, that “it feels different,” “it feels like our country, society-we’ve gone through an earning process.” There would be “vestiges” of sexism, as president Obama has faced vestiges of racism, she predicted, “but I do believe it would not be reflexive. It would not be as acceptable.”8
The media circus goes on and on paving the way for the pre-chosen candidates to emerge, thus, disabling the American public from any thinking outside the box. Therefore, and as always the elite will decide for the ignorant and naive masses what is best for them, because the herds need to be led due to their inner impotence to think and choose on their own.
Why would Hillary Clinton’s handlers make her run again for president? Can she be used to mobilize the Democratic Party while losing the election for JEB Bush? Can the Democratic Party win an election after 8 years of Democratic Obama? Will the public want another Bush in the White House? Why is JEB treading gently and slowly? Are his handlers waiting for the right moment to announce his candidacy? Are there any other electable choices in a nation of 307 million people?
After eight years of democratic occupancy in the White House by a Black president, it will be unlikely that another democrat will win the White House in 2016. JEB Bush will be promoted by the media as a savior on a white horse from the corrupt black Obama regime that contaminated the White House and the nation. As a result, JEB the new biblical figure for the Christian fundamentalists will become the only viable Republican candidate to cleanse and win back theHouse of Whites. JEB is the man who was originally groomed by his unscrupulous father to be president. He will certainly be supported by the corporate elites and the Central Intelligence Agency. To ensure his win, Mr. Bush will more likely run against the insignificant vice president Joseph Biden who was branded as a stooge by the media and by many political circles rather than Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Tired Hillary Clinton will not run again for president in 2016. She was humiliated enough in 2008, and was given many consolation awards like her Secretary of State post, just like Al Gore was given his in the form of an Academy Award and a Nobel price to reward him after George Jr. won the presidency by a shady court decision.
Bush versus Clinton Theater of the Absurd
Out of 307 million Americans, only 20 to 25% of the population vote. 35% of that 25% are predominantly Christian fundamentalists. As a result, our democracy becomes dictated by a minority vote rather than a majority rule. Therefore, we have to ask ourselves whether an orchestrated campaign between Bush and Clinton will rejuvenate and mobilize voters and get the public more involved.
Does Hillary Clinton have a real chance of winning against Bush in order to become the next leader of the alleged free world?
How much money and bribes will the Clintons receive to perform the presidential theatrics that will lead once again to Hillary’s loss?
In reality, Hillary Clinton will never be president. She missed her chance in 2008 as the message by the money masters was loud and clear.
Every president builds on his predecessor’s agenda as drawn by the global money masters. What is most frightening would be to have another corrupt Bush in the White House whose agenda would be no different than his predecessors. This agenda is aimed at furthering the total control of the masses and rendering America into a prison nation with an illusion of freedom and democracy only emanating from its 24 hour misinformation network news. Unfortunately, and once again, the 2016 presidential election has already been decided way before 2016.
Meanwhile, if Hillary Clinton decides to run for the sake of money, publicity, and obedience to her money masters, in order to promote the elusive agenda of equality between men and women, the masses might become temporarily frenzied, excited, and mobilized giving the media a memorable election to cover. That will ensue in improved network ratings, and increased profit margins under the guise of promoting the same existing pseudo-democracy. Stay tuned for the 2016 presidential election as the prospective theater of the absurd unravels.
Finally, good luck to the minority of voters who still believe that their votes will make a difference. Meanwhile, they will continue to encourage and enable a corrupt system that will only linger and exist as long as their ballots are cast in the boxes of empty dreams.
