Jeb Bush looted Florida pension funds to fund his brother's presidential campaign

When word got out that creepy Jeb might be running for prez, the crap started hitting the fan.  The crap being that he was more moderate and more intelligent than his brother.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  He is a true member of the Bush clan.  They've never found a rich man they didn't like or think deserved special handling by the government.  Never turn your back on a member of the Bush clan!

There were many things he did wrong while governor of Florida, but this may be one of the most egregious and we're just learning about it now.  What does that say about our MSM?

While Jeb Bush was governor of Florida, state pension officials committed at least $1.7 billion to financial firms whose executives were “Pioneer” fundraisers for his brother’s presidential campaigns. To achieve Pioneer status, the fundraisers had to amass at least $100,000 worth of bundled contributions to one of George W. Bush’s campaigns.

An International Business Times analysis of Florida government documents and a list of George W. Bush’s bundlers compiled by Public Citizen found that 11 firms that received new Florida pension investments under Jeb Bush were Pioneers. IBTimes also analyzed data from the Florida Division of Elections and Political Moneyline to determine how much money executives from those firms donated directly to Jeb Bush’s campaigns, George W. Bush’s campaigns, the Republican National Committee and the Republican Party of Florida between 1998 and 2006.

The crooks really have been in charge!

It just makes you shake your head in dismay.

Bush versus Clinton. Can't both parties come up with something better?

Well, we know the GOP can't, but seriously... anyone but Hilary on the Dems side? It's not Hilary I'm so objecting to, but her husband.

There are still a few more Bushes being groomed to lead us for a long time.

We did have a single Clinton as President. He like many in the Bush family has a wife and only one child and one grandchild. None have ever been arrested for smuggling, nonpayment of taxes due for purchases abroad, Driving while under the influence of alcohol or, drugs, Going AWOL, while serving in the National Guard, or drowning a date.

We are a forgiving people, as long as only one political party seems prone to being a willing accessory to putting an evil man in positions of trust, like VP of the USA, etc. There’s probably more, but not enough care when it comes to electing people to high office and getting huge sums of money to use to hire people to subvert our system, pay for speeches, hire as TV pundits etc .Either Democrats are too honest, which I doubt, or they are unemployable, as once minorities were until enough voters began to ignore the propaganda and vote intelligently after EXAMING RECORDS AND ASKING QUESTIONS.

The good old days did have some wonderful things that should be reinstated after a general cleanup.

How is a dynasty defined and why is it an issue?

Jeb is just George Dubya without the charisma.
He's supposed to be the "smart one" too, but he doesn't seem like any less of a dim bulb.

I think the political branch of the family was started by grandpa who began his career as a crooked banker and was forced to leave town. He moved and married into a wealthy banking family that prospered and gave him a newly found respectability. He took shortcuts, did lots of business with Nazi Germany before AND DURING WW2. Other banks did the same as it was profitable, and very few Jews were in banking, due to prejudice or honesty. When our government made Bush stop, by threatening action due to the “trading with the enemy act”, he retired and went into the Senate, where ethics were more to his liking and basic talents.

The family became very wealthy due to investments in the oil industry, and George Bush Senior, moved to Texas where he could be relatively independent and become a self-made millionaire, with a lot of help from friends of the family. He was thought of as an honest man. Barbara Bush wore the pants for the entire family along with a hidden large jock strap under her skirt. Great wealth does that to some famous dynasties. All Bush men eventually run for President, after undistinguished political careers, as slow but steady plodders and being placed in the line of upward mobility by not offending anyone and being loyal to their party, which always believed it knew best for the country. Events and some of their careers, the ones the media exposed as less than honest or even smart did not prove that to be accurate or correct.

There is a Bush Dynasty and currently and it has bred a number of Spanish speakers and the Bush name and money as their qualifications. The voters, with the media’s help, love them, without further evaluation. They might think the family name refers to the Bible’s famous Burning Bush.

I cannot guarantee that all my facts can be verified, as research is missing on some members of the family
