Jeb Bush was the Republican Party’s favorite presidential nominee but Donald Trump has conducted a controlled demolition of his candidacy over the Bush family’s role in the 9/11 atrocity, an American scholar and political analyst says.

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 on Monday when was asked to comment on Donald Trump’s recent statement about Jeb Bush.

Bush, brother and son to two former US presidents, dropped out on Saturday night after a disappointing showing in South Carolina’s Republican primary.

Trump, who has been credited to ruin the candidacy of onetime party favorite Jeb Bush, on Sunday refused to take responsibility for his opponent’s exit from the 2016 White House race.​

“Is Donald Trump responsible for the destruction of Jeb Bush’s candidacy for the White House?” Dr. Barrett asked. “I think the short answer to that is: Yes, he is responsible.

Donald Trump has conducted a controlled demolition of the candidacy of Jeb Bush. It’s been very clear from the get-go that Trump saw that the weakness of Jeb Bush was his complicity in the atrocities of September 11, 2001, and the wars that those atrocities were designed to trigger.

“These wars have been a disaster for the United States. The majority of the American people understand that the presidency of George W. Bush was perhaps the biggest catastrophe ever to hit the United States in its history, and that’s saying something.

“We had a civil war, we had a number of very unfortunate incidents, but never before the presidency of George W. Bush, did a sitting president allow his vice president to murder 3,000 American citizens in a false flag event designed to launch a series of wars on behalf of a foreign entity, in this case the state of Israel—wars that bankrupted the United States’ treasury, wars that have ruined the reputation of the United States in the eyes of the world, wars that have shredded the American Constitution, wars that have essentially come very close to putting an end to the American experiment.

The presidency of George W. Bush has nearly ended the United States as we used to know it.

“And Donald Trump recognizes this as do many Americans, who half-consciously understand that things have gone terribly, terribly wrong. And where they began to go utterly disastrously wrong was during the presidency George W. Bush with the 9/11 false flag event, which Americans deep in their hearts know very well was an inside job, and with these horrific wars and wars on civil liberties, and wars on the American economy that have followed.

“So this is the elephant in the living room in the American political unconscious. And Donald Trump, a very astute political thinker, much smarter than he appears with some of his ill-considered statements, I think understands it totally, that this is the Achilles’ heel of the Bush family in general, and of Jeb Bush’s candidacy for the White House in particular.

So Trump hammered away at Jeb Bush by repeatedly throwing up 9/11 [allegations] in ways that have more and more directness, targeted the official story and questioned the official story of 9/11, and made that connection between Jeb Bush and the 9/11 war crimes of his brother.

“And I don’t think it’s any coincidence that in the last week we saw Trump going so far to say that ‘elect me and you’ll find out who really knocked down the Twin Towers,’ and then Jeb responded by bringing his brother, George W. Bush, on the stage with him for the first time in this campaign, and then virtually the next day he dropped out. It’s quite an amazing spectacle.”

  1. It’s been a real pleasure watching this process take place. It can only happen when the American people are ready for it so that in itself is very encouraging. The shift from conspiracy to acceptable truth has come with some real growing pains but these are the fruits of the relentless. It shows that if there’s enough reinforced truth out there that the right people will align with it.
    I could also mean that like the Bush criminals, the bankers too know when to burn an asset. The Bush Family and friends could be on barrel end of a Saddam special. Hmm,..maybe they used Santa Fe drilling to get nukes under the WTC.

  2. Absolutely agree there, George Bush presidency took USA and flushed it down the toilet. He took a very good engine of let’s say Dodge Viper or of a Ferrari with some corrosion but still driving well and he totally dismantled it. I really wish 9/11 never happened but the apparent bloodsuckers Wolfowitz and the gang would go ahead through it with anybody I guess. The worst thing it did, 9/11 didn’t help America, didn’t help Israel and ultimately didn’t help the elites. On the long run 9/11 helped no cunning political gain whatsoever. My favorite description of Bush presidency is the simplest one, from Richard Gere: “a very, very poor president..”

  3. maybe now trump-chump will tell how GHWB rammed NAFTA-GATT down our throats as DC handed out corporate welfare for companies to “outsource” all technology and production, and how HILLARY jumped in on the board of directors to WALMART to sell Chinese goods and expand into every little city possible to close all the smaller retailers and CANCEL the millions of THOSE related JOBS, while they make themselves beneficiary to “dead peasant” insurance policies of the elderly “walmart greeters” so they can build another walmart store…

    • I’m serious about this, hillary IS a multiple FELON and treasonous economic saboteur who made multi-millions from making millions of people unemployed. she is NOT a legitemate candidate at all, and obama appointing a FELON as secretary of state was a criminal act too! thrown out of DC as a young intern caught trying to hide paperwork from the Watergate federal investigation should have ended her politically. being fined 300k for violating the Logan Act instead of minimum 3 years in a federal penitentiary = guilty = felon.
