EMINENT DOMAIN, JEB BUSH AND HIS BROTHER
Jeb Bush advocates the destruction
of the fragile desert environment
with the Keystone
Pipeline and the use of
eminent domain to force people
off of their land.
When Jeb Bush criticized others for
their misuse of eminent domain,
a betwork reporter responded
later that G W Bush's father used
domain to force poor people
out of their homes in Arlington
Texas so that the Rangers stadium
could be built. They were given
less than their property was worth.
The poor were
also taxed to pay for it.
But when it was sold, none
of them got any of the profits.
I A Three Bush Wars
On June 15, Jeb Bush announced he is running for the US presidency. His father and his brother have started THREE wars: the first Gulf war, the socalled Desert Storm, and the war in Afghanistan, now the longest war in US history. These 3 wars have killed millions, injured millions more, destroyed fragile environments, and have virtually bankrupted the US, penalizing the poor as Trillions of dollars have been spent on arms, geometrically multiplying veterans' injuries etc. These wars have meant declining health care, library shut downs, students financially shut out of higher education, banks running amok etc. Rand Paul has the only antiwar record of the 16 Republicans expected to run for the presidency.
Jeb Bush was a coconspirator in the theft of the 2000 election from the citizens of the US.
He was supervisor of the removal of untold hundreds of thousands illegally from the voting rolls, under the guise that they were felons. He was the man who directed that policemen be in black and Hispanic neighborhoods shutting off roads leading to the polls. Jeb Bush was in charge of the decision of the Jacksonville metropolitan paper's decision to spread disinformation about the ballot in black neighborhoods. A special edition of the Florida Times-Union was published and distributed in black neighborhoods, with false instructions. Twenty thousand ballots in Jacksonville were disqualified because of this. In addition there were robocalls telling blacks they could vote through Nov 7, Wednesday.
Not all the ballots were counted in the 2012 election on November 8th, an election in which Miami residents, many, were kept waiting til ONE AM to vote.
Because of his colossal crime, the war in Iraq by G H W Bush was again instituted and euphemistically
called Desert Storm. Because of his felonious action, the war in Afghanistan was begun by his brother. He is therefore a cocreator of TWO wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Jeb Bush's father G H W Bush conducted a secret attack on William Colby, CIA director, because Colby had revealed to the Senate past CIA assassinations of foreign leaders etc. Bush's reward was to be named director of the CIA, a position he held for 1 year. Jeb Bush's brother George through an executive order ratified the kidnappings and torture conducted by the CIA. The euphemistic term for the barbarism was 'rendition'. 23 CIA operatives were convicted by the Italian government.
Jeb Bush has made bellicose statements about the Ukraine and has promoted once again expanding US government military in Iraq. According to the Washington Post, 19 of Jeb Bush's campaign advisers are holdovers from Bush 1 and Bush 2, and even as far back as the Reagan administration.
Jeb Bush has criticized Barack Obama for reducing the number of soldiers in Iraq.
1B Jeb Bush wants others to go into harm's way in immoral, illegal, stupid bankrupting wars which hurt the real security of the US. He himself never served. His father arranged to keep his brother out of Vietnam, and his brother was AWOL from the Texas National Guard. The movie "Truth" with Robert Redford as Dan Rather reveals how CBS backed down from revealing the truth when pressured by Bush operatives.
On Aug 14,, 2015 Jeb Bush said he would not rule out enhanced torture interrogations. His brother dropped plans to go to Switzerland because of human rights groups' calls for his arrest for torture advocacy. .http://time.com/3998483/jeb-bush-republicans-torture/
1D Jeb Bush promotes the continuing hemorrhaging of money in bombing people in several countries including Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria etc.
II State Murder
Because of the treason of helping his brother steal the presidency from Al Gore, Jeb Bush is also reponsible for executions continuing in the US. His brother nominated John Roberts, author of torture briefs, and Sam Alito the Supreme Court. A number of execution cases have been decided in the Supreme Court by 5 Republicans voting to kill and 4 Democrats voting not to kill.
Like his brother George, Jeb Bush was governor of 1 of the last 7 states involved in execution. Because Jeb Bush did not prevent the execution of a man named Diaz, the man had several inches of chemical burns on his right and left arms. Altogether, he turned thumbs down to 21 requests for mercy, and executed 21 people, more than several other Florida governors. Florida and Texas
remain 2 of the last 7 states involved in state judicial and prosecutorial murder, while 43 states have come into the 21st Century. Since government murder was reintroduced by the Republican dominated Supreme Court in 1976, Jeb Bush as of December 2014 holds the record in Florida executions.
Jeb Bush said Lawton Chiles when governor of Florida was not executing fast enough.
III African Americans
When he was asked what he would do for African Americans if elected, he replied 'probably nothing'.
Oil interests want to hasten Florida's sinking into the sea by fracking and drilling in the Everglades
a Jeb Bush has private investments in fracking
b Jeb Bush was a proponent of offshore drilling.
Florida depends heavily on its tourist industry.
c He served on the board of a Norwegian company which sold fire equipment for oil operations.
d As governor, Jeb Bush raided environmental trust money of 75 million for general expenses http://www.ontheissues.org/2016/Jeb_Bush_Environment.htm
e Jeb Bush supports the destruction of the fragile desert environment for the Keystone Pipeline
f Is Florida sinking?
Jeb Bush established the dominance of the petroplutocracy in Florida.
V Monsanto Connection to Bush Family *A
Bush's corporate ties
VI Social Security Contract With Americans
a Bush wants to privatize Social Security, as his brother tried. He wants to open Social Security to Wall St. fraud, insider trading, pension theft, criminal corporate bankruptcies.
b Jeb Bush is on record in wanting to raise the retirement age, which would be a contract breaker. He wants to push back retirement 5 years.
VII Raising Taxes
Unlike his father who said 'no new taxes' and then raised them, J Bush said he will not rule out increasing taxes. http://www.politico.com/story/2014/12/jeb-bushs-policy-minefields-113624
VIII Prochoice Prolife
Jeb Bush prevented public fund use for stem cell research.
Jeb's Father and Brother
Because of the bartering of the Bush administration and the US Catholic bishops,
most Catholic bishops in the US were silent about the ungodly wars in Iraq, Afghanistan waged by the US government.. In return, the Bushes were responsible for the appointment of ostensbily prolife Catholics to the Supreme Court. Is it an oxymoron for a man to call himself prolife when voting to ratify the bombing of people around the world, to execute prisoners, to deny animals even the slightest modicum of legal protection, to quash the lawsuits of those working to protect Mother Earth's plants, water and air?
*IX Animal Rights
a. Jeb Bush gave 310 million dollars in Floridian citizens money to Scripps to set up its animal torture labs. He also opposed state funds for stem cell research. The 2 wars he cocreated with G W Bush by his criminal suppression of the vote in the 2000 election in Florida killed billions of animals.
b. What are Bush's and Rubio's positions on the hunting of bears in Florida?
c. In Florida Jeb Bush passed prohunting legislation
d G H W Bush was the keynote speaker at a Reno Nevada convention of Safari Club International, a group of trophy seeking animal killers.
e George W Bush was named by Safari Club as governor of the year.
f George W Bush wrote a letter for an Indiana trophy hunter asking Botswana to bring back lion hunting.
The privacy rights of Floridians who emailed Jeb Bush were violated as he released their emails.
Jeb Bush gave 310 million dollars in Floridian citizens money to Scripps to set up its animal torture labs.
Such stem cell research would have reduced the amount of pain inflicted on Florida animals in labs.
XI Gay Rights
Jeb Bush Has Said Indiana Has A Right To Refuse To Serve Gays
a Jeb Bush wants to repeal the health law passed under the current administration.
b He signed a bill and eliminated mandatory helmets for motorcyclists. ER doctors say helmets save many lives yearly.
c Physically, Jeb Bush has blood pressure problems.
d. Jeb Bush's dangerous paleo diet
XIII Offshore Private Equity firm

XIV Power Grab For Executive

XV Harming Public Schools

XVI Bank Bailout

XVII Medical Marijuana

(Rand Paul pointed out the hypocrisy of so many candidates who claim to be states' rights but would act legally to oppose states who legalize marijuana.)
XVIII Jeb Bush Seems Ignorant About Iraq
XIX Criminal Legacy
G H W Bush, for a year the director of the CIA, engineered the Iran Contra scandal, meeting on March 12 of 1980 with James Woolsey, another former director of the CIA, to negotiate arms for Iran in exchange for not releasing the US hostages held by the government of Iran until After the 1980 election. The motive was the portrayal of President Carter as weak. The negotiation by private citizens (both Bush and Woolsey were) with a foreign government is a crime.
James Hatfield wrote the book Fortunate Son about the cocaine arrest and Awol military record of George W Bush. The Bush family fought the publication and was able to block the first publication. After the book was in the second attempt published, James Hatfield was found dead in an out of state motel room. As in the case of Gary Webb who revealed the CIA's role in distributing crack cocaine throughout black neighborhoods in the US, the murder was called a suicide.
Two operatives of George Bush attempting to position themselves for the 2016 election both lost their elections. Eric Levinson sent by Bush to Iraq to arrange the illegal immoral hanging of a foreign leader, Saddam Hussein, lost to incumbent Robin Hudson in a North Carolina Supreme Court race.
Tom Foley sent by Bush and Kissinger to arrange the loan shark capitalization of Iraq in concert with Paul Bremer (who issued Executive Order 19 forbidding Iraqi farmers from saving their own seed and requiring them to buy from approved American companies such as Monsanto) was defeated in the Connecticut governor's race by Tom Foley

911 Criminal Conspiracy
Because the Bush family had foreknowledge of the World Trade Center bombing on Sept 11, 2001, George W Bush was hustled off to Sarasota, Florida where Jeb was at the time governor 911truth.org
On March 12, 1980, 2 former directors of the CIA,G H W Bush,and R James Woolsey (who were in 1980 private citizens) negotiated with Iran arms dealers to give weapons to Iran in exchange for the hostages Iran was holding.... the condition was that they not be released until the election results came in.
Jeb Bush's 9/11 Problem
XXI Bush wants to phase out Medicare.
Like many other multimillionaires, Bush wants to phase out Medicare.
It is not just Social Security Bush wants to privatize. In his years as governor he privatized many jobs.
XXIII Unconstitutional NSA surveillance and the Patriot Act
Jeb Bush wants more not less NSA surveillance, the kind that causes counterhacking by China threatening the privacy of all Americans.
XXIV Eminent Domain

Pipeline and the use of eminent domain to force people off of their land.
When Jeb Bush criticized others for their misuse of eminent domain,

Those who were in George W, George H W
and Reagan administrations:
Paul Wolfowitz warmonger The following quote is from thinkprogress.org
"Wolfowitz, who served as Deputy Secretary of Defense in the George W. Bush administration, began advocating an attack on Iraq shortly after the Sep. 11 attacks, established “what amounted to a separate government” to push for war and invited journalists to secret meetings in order to lay out the foundation for his plans. Wolfowitz established the Office of Special Plans in the Pentagon that ignored the conclusions of the intelligence community and fed policy makers and the media discredited claims of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction."

Like Romney, JEB Bush HAS A NEW Private Equity Fund Based Offshore
"Documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Nov. 27 list Bush as chairman and manager of a new offshore private equity fund, BH Global Aviation, which raised $61 million in September, largely from foreign investors. In November the fund incorporated in the United Kingdom and Wales—a structure, several independent finance lawyers say, that operates like a tax haven by allowing overseas investors to avoid U.S. taxes and regulations." Source: Bloomberg
Like HIS Brother George, JEB Announced HE Would Streamline Exeuctions
"One of Bush's central themes during the 1994 campaign was his desire to streamline the execution process for death row inmates. In order to do this, he proposed limiting death row inmates to only one appeal with the state, a measure he hoped would speed up the state's execution process. Bush named his plan "one trial, one appeal," and released it at a press conference in the spring of 1994. According to a May 19 report in the St. Petersburg Times, Bush told attendees, "I believe the one trial, one appeal will speed the enforcement of the death penalty by two to four years in most death cases."
