Tomorrow Americans may be ringing in the New Year of 2015 but as the hyperventilating of the mainstream political media grows heavier we will soon be going back to the future. In an ominous sign for all potential 2016 Republican White House aspirants Jeb Bush’s spokespeople have announced that the king in waiting has resigned from all of his board memberships. This clears the decks for the coming formal announcement that Bush III will be the chosen one to duke it out with Queen Hillary the Inevitable in the political steel cage death match to replace Barack Obama as the head of the American Empire.
As reported by The Washington Post in a story entitled “With eye on 2016, Jeb Bush resigns from all boards”:
Former Florida governor Jeb Bush, moving closer to a possible presidential run, has resigned all of his corporate and nonprofit board memberships, including with his own education foundation, his office said late Wednesday night.
He also resigned as a paid adviser to a for-profit education company that sells online courses to public university students in exchange for a share of their tuition payments.
Bush’s New Year’s Eve disclosure, coming in an e-mail from an aide to The Washington Post, culminated a string of moves he has made in recent days to shed business interests that have enriched him since leaving office in 2007. The aide said the resignations had been made “effective today.”
The aide said Bush was reviewing other businesses in which he is principal partner or owner, such as Jeb Bush & Associates, a consulting firm, and Britton Hill Partnership, a business advisory group that in 2013 set up private-equity funds investing in energy and aviation.
Aides said Bush wants to devote his time to exploring a return to politics rather than pursuing his business commitments. But separating himself from those interests now could also be a strategic attempt to prepare for the added scrutiny of a hotly contested campaign for the Republican nomination.
The big money donors are loving it because in a contest between Jeb and Hillary it’s heads they win, tails we lose. Wall Street gamblers, weapons industry titans, plutocrats and corporations that have offshored millions of good paying jobs while importing illegals to drive down wages are already drooling. For any Americans who want serious change it increasingly appears that the only realistic option given the total corruption of the two party system is to leave the country. Change is not going to happen here as the vested interests are already working hard to lock down their ill gotten gains no matter which party “wins” in 2016. While the American people as a whole are the big losers there will be much carping, weeping and gnashing of the teeth from the GOP field of doomed lesser candidates who have just had the big one dropped on them.
None are taking it harder than Florida Senator Marco Rubio who had been groomed by Bush during his tenure as governor of the Sunshine State. Rubio has become completely unraveled after being delivered the twin blows of Obama’s “normalization” of U.S. policy towards Cuba and now Jeb’s entry into the race. Not that the ambitious little twit would have emerged with the nomination but his new hard core opposition to immigration reform – which is as phony as the day is long – will likely now see him lose out on being the token Hispanic on the Bush ticket.
Dynastic political rule, most often associated with banana republics is just the way we roll in the USA these days.
