Trump destroyed Jeb Bush candidacy over his role in 9/11

"9/11 was W's fault" - Trump

Jeb Bush was once the presumptive Republican Party nominee but New York billionaire Donald Trump has destroyed Bush’s candidacy, an American scholar and political analyst says.

VT Editor Dr. Kevin Barrett, editor of We Are Not Charlie Hebdo and scholar of Arabic and Islamic studies, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV while commenting on a new poll which shows that Bush’s favorability among GOP voters has dropped to new lows during last seven months.

Bush, who was once the Republican Party’s presumed leading contender, had a net favorability of +27 in July, but in the latest poll it is -1.

“Jeb Bush was the presumed favorite for the Republican nomination going into the beginning of the race. And it’s been very interesting to watch him self-destruct during this campaign, Many people are scratching their heads and wondering what went wrong for Jeb Bush,” Dr. Barrett said.

“Jeb Bush is a very bright and talented Bush as Bushes go. He was the heir apparent to the Bush dynasty along with his other competent brother, Neil, and their idiot, incompetent brother, George W.[who] somehow became president.

“We have reports that George Bush, the elder, actually wept tears when he found that W. was going to get the nomination. He knew that W. was not competent enough to be elected a dog-catcher of a small village, much less President of the United States.

“So when Jeb Bush announced his candidacy and had tons of money behind him, everyone expected that he was anointed to get the nomination, if not the presidency. And yet today his popularity, formerly almost 30 points net positive, has dropped into the negative range. It is a complete collapse of his campaign.

“And the question is that how did this happen?

“Well, Bush hasn’t done himself any favors. He hasn’t given anybody a compelling reason to vote for him. But I think the real reason that Bush’s campaign has been destroyed is exactly the same reason that Rudy Giuliani’s campaign was destroyed back in 2008 – and that is that just as with Giuliani, Jeb Bush is a 9/11 criminal, who participated in the destruction of the World Trade Center and the murder of almost 3,000 Americans.

“Giuliani was haunted in 2008 during his campaign by ‘We Are Change.’  Everywhere Giuliani went, ‘We Are Change’ followed him and filmed each other, asking him why he announced that he knew the World Trade Center was going to collapse before it happened? And that’s why he moved his emergency headquarters from Building 7 to Pier 92. And yet he didn’t tell the firefighters.

“And hundreds of firefighters died in the collapse of those buildings.

“Giuliani knew it was going to happen, as he clearly stated in a television interview that day. So by dogging Giuliani, ‘We Are Change’ destroyed his presidential campaign and saved America and the world from the specter of a President Giuliani – ‘the 9/11 president.’

“The same thing [has happened] with Jeb Bush. Instead of ‘We Are Change’ destroying his presidency, it’s been Donald Trump. Donald Trump has repeatedly very sneakily challenged Jeb Bush on 9/11 by saying that 9/11 was the fault of George W. Bush, which is true in more ways than one.

“It’s not just that Bush was so incompetent that he let it happen. Bush was part of the program. It was run by [then Vice President Dick] Cheney out of a basement in the White House – the murder of 3,000 Americans, the worst crime ever committed on American soil. It was commanded by Dick Cheney, and there’s overwhelming evidence for this. Simply read David Ray Griffin’s book, the New Pearl Harbor, and his subsequent very-well researched studies of 9/11.

“Jeb Bush, for his part, actually participated in the destruction of evidence at the CIA drug import airstrips in Florida that were tasked to be flight schools where they pretending to train alleged 9/11 hijackers to fly.

“Bush himself flew into these drug import airstrips on the night of 9/11 with National Guard thugs, and they stole the evidence that these so-called flight schools were CIA drug import airstrips.

“That evidence had been collected by police. Jeb and his goons went to the police station and stole that evidence from police at gunpoint and put them at a C-40 cargo plane and flew them to God knows where.”

    However in present state of world affairs the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal will never attain a UN mandate or recognition, for the same old anglo-american exception rule, above the law and above all nations, proving the UN is completely controlled by the anglo-saxon law and therefore not applicable throughout the world. But if one nation or joint committee of nations would argue enough they could lift the ban of non-prosecuting US/UK officials, soldiers etc.

    The Kuala Lumpur court verdict is valid for much of the international crime syndicate, even more than the political stunt Hague that puts third world politicians and crooks into penitentiary and ubermen british lords and us generals into “forced” paid vacations in Bahamas. The Bush family and Tony Blair are worldwide officially indicted war criminals and should be regarded with nothing less of a description.

    Yesterday there was a terrific piece of reporting from RT on how to avoid the international prosecution, How to avoid the Hague-UN’s most borrowed book is about war crime immunity – The UN Library has created a media storm by publishing information about its most borrowed book of 2015. Titled ‘Heads of State and State Officials for International Crimes,’ the publication advises world leaders on how to literally get away with murder.
    The Dag Hammarskjold Library, named after the former secretary general of the organization who died in 1961, tried to create a little bit of publicity for itself, by posting a tweet of the most borrowed book of 2015. However, the results proved to be both surprising and embarrassing for the library. Top of the checkout list proved to be a doctoral thesis from the University of Lucerne by Ramona Pedretti, who wrote about whether heads of states can be charged with war crimes in foreign courts.

    Her thesis concludes that leaders in power cannot be prosecuted while they are serving as the head of government, so the likes of Robert Mugabe or Bashar Assad would not be able to be prosecuted under US jurisdiction at present. However, once they step down, they can be charged by foreign courts.

    Please watch the documentary “The Clinton Chronicles” on Youtube. It will show surprising details of why all of the lawsuits, criminal investigations and charges against Bill Clinton disappeared, dropped, and were brushed aside by various government agencies and officials. That’s why these criminals are still in the office or walk free out there.

    Given that 9/11 “truthers” are seen as “conspiracy theorists” by the MSM and a significant percentage of US citizens, it seems likely that when Trump linked G. W. Bush to 9/11 he did less damage to Jeb Bush than when Trump reminded people that George Wanker Bush got us into Iraq in 2003.

    Very few US citizens still think Iraq 2.0 was a good idea. They know that Bush and his neocon cronies lied about WMDs, lied about “bringing freedom and democracy” to Iraq, lied about “the surge,” and lied about pretty much everything else. The sons and daughters of about 4,500 US families came home from Iraq in boxes, with twice that number committing suicide after the fact. Some of the US public is also aware that somewhere from 500,000 to 1 million Iraqis died in the war, with another 5 million displaced. And finally, after years of lying while others were dying, Bush and his neocon henchmen presented the US public with a bill for several trillion dollars to cover the cost of a war that never should have happened. But Jeb Bush has refused to say his brother W. made a mistake. In fact, he added W. to his campaign team, which was already riddled with quite a few of the same neocons that lied us into Iraq. People, even the dumbed down US public, tend to notice things like that.

      True, and I’m old enough to remember the picture of Donald Rumsfeld shaking the hand of Saddam Hussein after delivery of some of those WMD weapons during the Iran-Iraq war (’80-’88). Neocons were almost telling the truth – for a change – when they claimed “we know Iraq has WMDs,” but only because the USG provided them in the first place.

    Jeb was never a viable candidate for the GOP IMO. Like his brother, fraud is the only way he would’ve gotten elected. And I don’t think the GOP had much faith in him. Maybe early on they did, but delusion will do that to you. If Trump never entered the picture, Jeb’s still in the same boat the Hilldabeast is on. Even among the sheep there is Clinton/Bush fatigue. And if that is not the case, the general public is even simpler than most of us already think they are. The media whores and poles can inflate their popularity all they want. Trump continues to spread Islamophobia, albeit more tongue in cheek lately. Nobody needs that crap blown up their ass. He’s either stupid or a Zionist puppet as many already believe. Bernie? Nice speech about the Wall Street banksters… but no mention of the Fed, IMF/World Bank. Gums flapping and puppets breaking wind in public. And the public will no doubt fall for it all over again. Add, rinse and repeat.

    Trust me, you might not like Trump, think he is too brash, too whatever, but for this guy to be as big as he got to build in NYC, it’s a tight knit club, everyone knows everything in the trade of building skyscrapers and Donald knew those buildings imploded from within. This is why the neocons hate him need to put him down because he very well could heal America and expose these evil deeds…..If it really transpires that he gets the nomination, you will see everyone in the Bush Administration exit this nation PDQ head for nations in so called retirement homes that would be extremely difficult to nab them, or do a plane crash, and just disappear.
    Someone has to be keeping close tabs on these evil doers because they know, we know.
