Not another Clinton – Bush election? Please!

Get ready, we may indeed see another Clinton – Bush election.  This time, Hillary Clinton, former First Lady and former Secretary of State pitted against Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida.  It’s like being Bill Murray in Ground Hog Day.  Ever get the feeling you’ve been here before?

Both candidates have something to prove.  Clinton wants to scrub her husband’s impeachment off the books and this would do it.  In a hundred years when some ten year old boy scans through the list and sees that Bill Clinton was impeached but his wife was elected president shortly thereafter he will make the ready conclusion, “The impeachment must have been political or else the country would never have turned so quickly to his wife.”  And Jeb Bush is running to prove, well, that not all Bushes should be judged by the last one.

How did it come to this?  There are three dynamics at work.

1.) Political dynasties are active in both parties simultaneously.

Normally, one can count on the opposition to raise a fuss.  If there was a Democrat dynasty the Republicans would howl.  If there was a Republican dynasty the Democrats would be outraged.  But now two have appeared at the same time.  No Democrat will raise the issue of corruption and attack the idea of the Bush family dynasty and risk alienating the powerful Clinton’s.  And no Republican will attack the Clinton’s and risk alienating the Bushes?  Even if the latter prove weak and Jeb Bush fails to show well in the primaries, the GOP nominee will have to have that powerful, fundraising machine supportive in the general election.

Now, in a very rare moment of history, the two dynasties have cancelled each other out.  As a result? There are dynasties gone wild. The electric fence is down and the cows are roaming all over.  The Cuomo’s, the Paul’s, the Kennedy’s, the Carter’s don’t get me started.

2.) Journalism is dead.

Normally, one can count on a vigorous Fourth Estate.  No less than Joseph Pulitzer railed against the idea of Robert Todd Lincoln running for president.  Throughout American history the media has been vigilant.  Attempts at family dynasties were always shot down.  This was America, not a monarchy.  After the Revolutionary War, when George Washington was presented a massive family genealogy by the English government he rejected it, pointing out that in these United States success or failure was determined by the choices of the individual not the bloodline.

This is not the Philippines.  This is not Indonesia.  This is not Panama, where fifteen families rule the country.

But in case you haven’t noticed, journalism is dead.  If a reporter can’t even pronounce Sevastopol what hope do we have that they are telling us anything accurate about Russia and the Ukraine?  We now live behind our own iron curtain.  News has become entertainment and the Clinton’s, Bushes, Kennedy’s all sell well.  Don’t expect any help from the media.

3.) Obama has failed.

Finally there is Barack Obama.  His election has been a great historic milestone but by just about any measure, including his own, his presidency is ending in disaster.  For example, the rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer at a rate that would make an Eastern establishment Republican blush.  The Nixon administration spied on its enemies but the Obama administration spies on its friends too and on its own political allies in the U.S. Senate.  Having tried an “outsider” like Obama, the American electorate is now more likely to turn to an “insider,” a Bush or a Clinton.  Better to have someone who doesn’t have to learn on the job.

While a Clinton – Bush rematch might just happen, almost any historian will warn that the idea of multiple presidencies in the same family is a recipe for abuse and disaster.  Having been in power and then spending time out of power, a family can muse about what might have been.  Who was loyal and who was not?  What should be done if given another chance?  How could the office have been better monetized?  Who should have been an Ambassador?  Whose corporate jet would be better appreciated and useful, added to the fleet of corporate jets loaned out to a former president?  What government contracts could legitimately go to whom and why?  How can the next family power contender be groomed?

America, already beginning to experience the corruption of a Third World nation, doesn’t need to grease the skids to fall any deeper into the abyss.  Clinton – Bush?  It may happen.  But if it does, expect America’s post constitutional drift to gain full sail.  The abuses won’t be pretty.

    VOTE LIBERTARIAN

    More good news (off topic): Kathleen Sebelius, whom Rand Paul called to resign for her incompetence (and her complicity) in bringing on the UNCONSTITUTIONAL economic disaster that is Obamacare — will follow Rand Paul’s call and is resigning!

    Another Liberal Scumbag down the drain…!

    What an utter embarrassment to Barrack Hussein Obama!
    —————————————————————————-

    His chosen, Sebelius, failed to deliver the 7,000,000 YOUNG Bodies needed to prop up Obamacare, instead (even with several more months of extending the “dead line”) only 7.5 million Americans have bought into it — and the majority of these are the old and decrepit. MSM touts it as a “success” — when the reality is that WAY LESS than 1 million are the Young Blood — when 7 million Youngsters were needed to make this Ponze Scheme work. Total Obama DISASTER, that MSM is WILLFULLY IGNORING!

    No wonder Kathleen Sebelius is scurrying to go underground by resigning — such liberal scumbags are distancing themselves from Obama ALREADY, so they can escape the stigma of such an association, hoping to win some office once he’s done!

    LOL — no such luck for you, Kathleen Sebelius, you’ve been forever pegged!

    “And Jeb Bush is running to prove, well, that not all Bushes should be judged by the last one.”

    Or the first one, for that matter.

  4. Jim says:

    I want to know why the champion of Liberty Ron Paul and his trusty sidekick Doug Wead aren’t out in Nevada defending that dude who refuses to pay the feds grazing fees? After all, he’s pretty much a creation of Ron Paul Incorporated. Stand by your product!!!

  5. Surfisher says:

    off topic — but in response to Rand Paul’s Class A lawsuit against Obama’s NSA spying on ALL AMERICANS (my take is also that this will be the Most crucial test of The Supreme Court in US History… if they have any INTEGRITY left, to properly defend (or falsely deny) the Validity of the US Constitution):

    MAKE THIS VIDEO VIRAL — Judge Napolitano’s statement I predict will be the final ruling in the Supreme Court (about 2 years from now): “Obama’s NSA found guilty, thus criminal charges against Obama and his underlings may be filed!”

  6. Surfisher says:

    NSA metadata analysis would declare Paul Revere as terrorist back in 1776 — and thus most likely kill him with a drone strike — WOW and a LOL!!!

  7. Surfisher says:

    Rand Paul destroys Kerry (and by proxy Obama) on Constitutional Law!

    Plus, mops the floor with this scumbag; leads him by the nose; and makes him look the Court Jester that Kerry is, by having him cavort at the feet of Obama’s Throne!

    Priceless!

    P.S. Who cares about Israel — It is the US we are to be concerned ONLY!!!

  8. Surfisher says:

    Amending the US Constitution?

    Of course — it is a Living Document that strives from Day One to GUARANTEE that Our Government has the LEAST Power while The Citizens enjoy the MOST Freedoms! Period.

    It has seen many amendments to this end. So, I propose the following Amendment #28

    (stated poorly and in short — someone else, You DOUG, improve on this):

    “Since the writers of the US Constitution did not envision US becoming the Ultimate Bureaucratic State where Gov Employees would nearly equal EVENTUALLY, and THAN SURPASS if UNCHECKED, the free Citizens that work for an actual living (WORK is deemed as doing something quantitatively productive, while TO BE EMPLOYED by the Gov means to have a position that pays you money, regardless of your TOTAL LACK of PRODUCTION). Thus, let this 28th Amendment be approved and forever remain in the US Constitution, as follows:

    1) Only those that work for a living in the private sector shall be allowed to vote.

    2) The only exception will be those that are in the US Military, for they also work for their living (by risking their lives to protect us).

    3) No one person that is employed in any way, by any and all, Local, State or Federal Governmental Agencies is to be allowed to vote — since it is self evident that they’ll vote for a Bigger Government, which the antithesis of our US Constitution!”

  9. Surfisher says:

    What if,
    Obama declares Martial Law come 2016 — then appoints himself as the next Caligula for life….?

    LOL — sounds laughable…but, I don’t think the African Kenyan will go away without an Unconstitutional Coup d’état try…all his unconstitutional moves he’s made so far are calculated for his Final Putsch against our Free Republic (owns the DHS militants, the NSA, and the media)!

    Long Live King Bama — we’ll be singing that before long…(to get a piece of bread in the FEMA Camps he’s constructing for US as we post)!

    We can live without the Sun, but can’t live without Obama!
    Our youth is for Obama, BIG Communist Heil Hussein:

  10. Surfisher says:

    Barrack Hussein Obama will go to speak on many more venues.

    Knowing that, I urge all Americans that attend such, to carry their actual Birth Certificates in their hands!

    And when Obama opens his mouth — interrupt him with the following:

    “Hey, here are our GENUINE American Birth Certificates we are waving in your face, before you open your mouth Obama, shows us your real one!”

    In other words — put up or shut up!
    ——————————————————————

    The MSM reporters won’t do it, since they are afraid of him, and what he’ll do to them, BUT FREE CITIZENS must not be afraid — just ask Obama to show what we MUST all show to get a job!

    Despicable Racist Cliven Bundy is (you guessed it) a Ron Paul Supporter!
    “The visit with Bundy was cordial. He is no stranger to reporters and is more than glad to hold forth on his case, his cause and the Constitution. With “Ron Paul” and “Bundy Melons” signs nearby, the rancher, whose family has run cattle in the area for many generations, went on at length about state sovereignty, the power of local government and the Founding Fathers granting limited power to the U.S. government.”

    https://www.reviewjournal.com/columns-blogs/john-l-smith/government-full-force-corral-cattle-first-amendment

    Kansas City Shooter Frazier Glen Miller is (you guessed it) a Ron Paul supporter who’s comments strongly echo Surfisher’s rants:

    “Not surprisingly, Miller denigrated most American politicians, but cited one positively: “If I had my way [all US senators] would be in jail right now for treason, if not hung from a sturdy oak tree…Ron Paul is the only independent politician, representative in Washington.”

  12. Surfisher says:

    An American stands up for his rights (and gets mauled and arrested by Fed Agents):

    “…Dave Bundy spoke to the media about his arrest the day before in the federal roundup of his father’s cattle from public land 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

    The 37-year-old said heavily armed federal agents roughed him up and arrested him for exercising his constitutional rights on a state highway in northeast Clark County on Sunday.

    “They got on their loudspeaker and said that everyone needed to leave,” Dave Bundy said during an impromptu news conference alongside his father outside a 7-Eleven on Las Vegas Boulevard. “I stood there and continued to express my First Amendment right to protest, and they approached me and said that if I didn’t leave, they’d arrest me.”

    The younger Bundy said he was taking photographs and protesting peacefully at the time….”

  13. Surfisher says:

    Obama and Hitlery Clinton should be jailed and put on Death Row for their complicity in the 4 Americans that died because of them in Benghazi!
    Then, perhaps one of these two criminals in office, would bury the other one with FACTS to escape the Chair and vie for Life in Jail instead!

    If you caused the deaths of 4 Americans, do you think you’ll escape prison for life, or the electric chair? NO! But if the Gov’s elites do it — they get a free pass, because they are more ‘equal’ than the rest of us??????!!!!!!!!!!!

    How sick is this! Wake up America!

    Citizen are put in jail, because their children are selling lemonade of their parent’s private property…! AND THE COPS will come in busting 10 year old’s lemonade stands?!?!

    But the responsible killers of the 4 Americans in Benghazi are not to be bothered, let alone arrested, since they are Top Gov officials…???!!!

    Wake up Real Americans — what’s wrong with this picture!

    Amazing: The hatchet job the MSM media and the RNC “debates” did to the Last Honest Man in America — Ron Paul!

    Another wonderful example is at minute 15:01 — where the winner of the poll (Ron Paul) is shown last on the graph…priceless misdirection by CNN!

    And another at minute 15:12 — CBS shows for New Hampshire: Romney in 1st place at 43%, followed by Gingrich with 9%, Huntsman with 7% and Santorum with 6% — (missing in the picture is Ron Paul — who won 2nd place with 20%)! Kudos for CBS being the New Nazis to ERASE COMPLETELY FROM THE RECORD on National TV the Candidate that won 2nd place!

    (Someone once said that today’s Jews in Media BEST yesteryear’s Nazis in propaganda…could this be true…?!)

    Watch this at minute 15:14 — MSNBC with Rachel Maddow — showing a pic of ALL 5 left in the race (but Ron Paul’s FACE is replaced with someone else’s picture INSTEAD, Pawlenty, that was no longer running, but supporting Mitt Romney at the time)! So 4 real candidates were displayed in this picture, and the 5th, was a “mistake” by MSNBC with Rachel Maddow…LOL, so many mistakes concerning Ron Pal, one would think it a conspiracy (but, since it is said by the media that conspiracies do not exist…it has to be “true”). No matter — Ron Paul has been painted out of this picture, too!

    Gets even funnier at minute 15:29 — FOX News reports:
    1) (picture of Romney) — STATES Romney leads by 35%
    2) (picture of Ron Paul) — BUT … states ROMNEY at 19%
    3) (picture of Gingrich) — States … Gingrich is at 17%
    4) (picture of Huntsman) — States… Huntsman at 13%
    Fox is “better” than MSNBC — they’ll show a pic of Ron Paul, but give 2 wins to Mitt Romney! Just another “mistake” by our controlled media…LOL!

    And the MSM perfidy kept on going by making their bosses happy — TOTAL BLACK-OUT on Ron Paul in their news!

    If you are a Real American — make this video VIRAL!
