Startling Connection Between Jeb And Hillary Just Exposed, And It Looks Awful For Him

According to recent reports, one of the scandals surrounding Hillary Clinton’s fledgling presidential candidacy have now at least partially ensnared one of her likely Republican rivals. Reports that the Clintons have gotten rich from giving speeches over the last 15 years have damaged Hillary’s credibility as a populist candidate who can relate to working class Americans.

As it turns out, one of the speeches for which Hillary Clinton took home a six-figure paycheck was funded by Academic Partnerships. The private sector education company reportedly paid Clinton $225,500 last year for a speech she gave in Dallas.

Jeb Bush, expected to announce his 2016 intentions in the near future, happened to have been an advisor, board member, and high-level investor at Academic Partnerships at the time Hillary Clinton was invited to speak. The former Florida governor also addressed the audience at the same event.

First Look explained that Bush’s involvement with the company began in 2011, and he was one of its public faces until he resigned last December to consider a White House bid.

Even prior to reports of this connection, Clinton and Bush have faced similar criticism regarding their perceived inevitability as nominees and the idea that, fairly or not, both give the appearance of creating a dynastic executive branch given their respective relationships with previous presidents.

“If the GOPe rams Jeb down our throats,” one Twitter user wrote, “they are no better than Queen Hillary and her merry band of thieves.”

Since the financial connection between the two politicos came to light, conservative criticism of Bush has only continued.

“JEB IS DONE!!” declared the Organization of Conservative Americans in a recent Twitter post.

Does his connection to Hillary Clinton make Jeb Bush less electable? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Last-Minute Coalition Deal Saves Netanyahu From Being Forced From Office

On Wednesday night, just an hour before a midnight deadline to build a coalition, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu informed President Rivlin he had succeeded in forming a government.

He made the announcement after his Likud party reached an agreement with the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party that will give Education and Diaspora Affairs portfolios to its leader, Naftali Bennett. Two other Jewish Home politicians will receive portfolios as well. MK Uri Ariel will be Agriculture Minister, and MK Ayelet Shaked Justice Minister.

Netanyahu had until midnight to speak to Rivlin. Otherwise, the president would have been required to ask another politician to try to form a government.

The new government will have a slim majority of just 61 seats in the 120-seat parliament.

The late-night deal with Bayit Yehudi saved Netanyahu from the unthinkable scenario of being forced from office. But it set the stage for the formation of a narrow coalition dominated by right-wing and religious parties that appears to be on a collision course with the U.S. administration and other allies.

The coalition talks stalled this week when Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, a longtime partner of Netanyahu’s, unexpectedly stepped down and announced his secular nationalist Yisrael Beitenu party was joining the opposition.

That left Netanyahu dependent on Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett, who is known to have a rocky relationship with Netanyahu. The talks with Bennett stretched throughout the day and well into the night before Netanyahu called President Reuven Rivlin, as required by law, to announce the deal.

The prime minister reiterated his desire to expand the coalition beyond its current 61 members of the Knesset, Israel’s parliament. “We will build a government that is strong and stable for the people of Israel,” Netanyahu said. “We have work to do.”

However, Netanyahu’s options to enlarge the government are almost non-existent.

Zionist Union leader Yitzchak Herzog has ruled out participation in Netanyahu’s government. The left-wing Zionist Union is the second largest party in Israel and consists of the Labor Party and Tzipi Lini’s Ha’Tnuah party. Herzog called the new government “the weakest, narrowest, and most prone to extortion coalition in the history of Israel.”

Other parties that could in principle join the new government are Yair Lapid’s Yes Atid party and Israel Beitenu.

Lapid, however, has always refused to sit in a government that contains ultra-orthodox parties and will not have forgotten that Netanyahu fired him as Finance Minister in November last year. So even when he would be offered the now-vacant, prestigious post of Foreign Minister, it will be hard to imagine Lapid’s return to a right-wing government led by Netanyahu.

Former FM Avigdor Lieberman is unlikely to go back on his decision not to join Netanyahu’s government. The Yisrael Beiteinu leader feels he has been treated poorly by Netanyahu for years. During a press conference on Monday after he resigned as Foreign Minister and quit the coalition talks, Lieberman blasted Netanyahu’s zigzagging, latent dovishness, and political conspiracies. Analysts said that Lieberman’s last-minute move was an attempt to ‘suicide bomb’ Netanyahu’s coalition.

Netanyahu’s Likud party will remain in control over Israel’s foreign and defense policy. The army, the diplomatic corps, the police, prisons and intelligence agencies, the pseudo-ministries variously called “strategic affairs” and “intelligence,” and the Knesset’s powerful Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee all remain in the hands of Likud.

The Palestinian Authority blasted the forming of a right-wing government in Israel.

The government “will be one of war that will be against peace and stability in our region,” Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erakat told AFP.

“This government will set its sights on killing, and reinforcing settlement activities,” he said of Israel’s ongoing construction on land the Palestinians want for a future state.

In March after the announcement of the results of the Israeli election, Erekat compared Netanyahu to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. During an interview on Palestinian television, Erakat said that al-Baghdadi “claims he is the head of the Islamic State while Netanyahu claims he is the head of the Jewish State.”

During the same interview, Erakat said that the Palestinians would intensify efforts to bring Israel to trial in the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

President Barack Obama “looks forward” to working with Benjamin Netanyahu and his newly formed government, the White House said on Thursday.

“The president congratulates the Israeli people, Prime Minister Netanyahu and the new governing coalition on the formation of Israel’s new government,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement. “President Obama looks forward to working with Prime Minister Netanyahu and his new government.”

“As the president has emphasized, the United States places great importance on our close military, intelligence, and security cooperation with Israel, which reflects the deep and abiding partnership between both countries,” Earnest continued. “We also look forward to continuing consultations on a range of regional issues, including international negotiations to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon and the importance of pursuing a two-state solution.”

Jeb And Hillary: The Worst Of Evils

Does anyone in the country want to see another Bush vs. Clinton presidential race? If they do, they have a death wish for America.

It is not uncommon these days to hear people refer to Jeb and Hillary as the “royals.” And, while I’m glad that a lot of people seem to have a natural revulsion to having another Bush or Clinton in the White House, the fact is, the Bushes and Clintons are not two “royals.” They are one CRIME FAMILY.

One of the greatest hoaxes of modern times was the façade that the Bush and Clinton families were political adversaries, when the truth is, they have all been “best buds” for most (if not all) of their political careers. For anyone who wants to research the veracity of what I am saying (with an honest and open mind), it will take almost no time to be convinced. The recent reports about foreign influence and money that have poured into the Clinton coffers are nothing new and are just the tip of the iceberg.

While there is no way that we can know the totality of all that this international Crime Family is guilty of, there is enough evidence and eyewitness testimony out there to convince even the most stubborn skeptic that these people are among the most despicable trolls in the world. If we had a semblance of a free and independent national news media, the Bushes and Clintons would have already been exposed as the miscreants they are and would be serving life sentences in prison–which is where they all belong. (Of course, that could be said for a bunch of those criminals in Washington, D.C.)

We hear much talk about the “lesser of two evils.” Well, folks, I’m here to tell you that Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton are the worst of evils. Both of these people are owned lock, stock, and barrel by the international elite who are hellbent on destroying capitalism, free enterprise, constitutional government, and yes, the sovereignty and independence of the United States. There is no substantial difference between them. They may have two different last names and claim to represent two different political parties and ideologies; but, again, they are members of the same cabal of international gangsters. And between the two, Jeb is probably more dangerous.

Despite the best attempts by the propaganda press to keep Hillary’s crimes under wraps, the skeletons are starting to fall out of the closet. It will be virtually impossible to keep them from developing into full-fledged scandals in forthcoming months. Hillary is damaged goods. In fact, Hillary is NOT even electable. I repeat: Hillary is NOT electable. The only way that Hillary will even obtain the Democratic nomination is if the power elite want to offer her up as a political sacrifice so Jeb (or another controlled Republican) can be the next President. The fact that New York newspapers are already breaking the foreign-cash scandal against Hillary is illustrative of what I’m saying. But if it looks like they cannot cram Jeb Bush down the throat of the Republican Party, and there is too much popular resistance to Bush, they might decide to let so many skeletons out of the closet that Hillary would not be able to even win the nomination.

As for Jeb Bush, he is the quintessential neocon: he loves Big Business, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and, especially, Big Banks and the Federal Reserve. He loves perpetual war; he loves the military-industrial complex; he loves open borders; he loves the DHS, the Patriot Act, and a domestic Police State. And Jeb Bush knows where the bodies are buried. He knows virtually every skeleton in every closet in Washington, D.C.–and in foreign capitals.

Jeb and his fellow globalist robot, Benjamin Netanyahu, are international gangsters of the highest (or lowest, depending on how one looks at it) order. With the two of them in power at the same time, WATCH OUT! The Warfare State and Police State would grow exponentially. War in the Middle East would become as hot as hot can be. Jeb and Bibi would take the world to the precipice of, or into, World War III.

Skull & Bones, the Rothschilds, Bohemian Grove, CFR, Trilateral Commission, Bilderbergs: Jeb is in the shadow of all of it. Jeb Bush is the Darth Vader of 2016. And with virtually unlimited money and a questionable voting system–not to mention the support of virtually the entire international banking system, military-industrial system, and corrupt foreign leaders in his pocket–he is going to be a most formidable candidate. The media is already skewing poll numbers to make it appear that Jeb Bush is popular with grassroots Republicans. Media manipulation of opinion in favor of Bush has only begun. It will proliferate tremendously in the months to come.

If Jeb Bush is elected President of the United States, he will make Barack Obama’s terms in office look downright benign by comparison.

However, the global elite do not always get their way. Jeb’s nomination is far from locked up. He is almost universally despised among grassroots conservatives. They know he is a Big Government neocon. His support for Obama’s executive amnesty for illegals, his support for Common Core, his support for Loretta Lynch, his infatuation with Lyndon Johnson, etc., have raised major red flags with genuine conservatives. It is yet to be seen if GOP grassroots conservatives can rise up against Bush in sufficient numbers to derail his candidacy–but they might.

Of course, the second scenario is that the power elite might use Bush as a smokescreen to pave the way for someone equally controlled. The field of GOP contenders is littered with neocons: Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Lindsey Graham, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, John Kasich, Bobby Jindal, Bob Sasse, etc. (Forget about Mike Pence; he killed any presidential aspirations he may have had with his embarrassing flip flop over the religious freedom issue in his home State of Indiana.) If conservatives derail Jeb Bush in the primaries–and if the media keeps Hillary Clinton in the race–you can know that this second scenario is the one the elites are using.

Again, if the elites plan on a Democrat taking the White House next year, they will remove Hillary from the race. Otherwise, they plan to play the same old “throw-the-bums-out” game and replace a controlled establishment Democrat with a controlled establishment Republican in 2016. In like manner, they replaced a controlled establishment Republican with a controlled establishment Democrat in 2008. In that race, John McCain was the sacrificial lamb. If this is the same game plan for 2016, Hillary Clinton will be the sacrificial lamb. This two-party charade has been going on forever. One would think that, sooner or later, the American people would catch on; but they seem to never do.

Thus far, the only two Republican candidates who are outside the blessing of the global elite are Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. So, you can mark this down and take it to the bank: the Republican establishment and propaganda media will do everything in their power (which is substantial) to make sure that neither of these men obtain the nomination.

I have written preliminary reviews of both Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.

My review of Ted Cruz is here:

Ted Cruz: Pros And Cons

My review of Rand Paul is here:

Rand Paul: Pros And Cons

Without a doubt, New World Order globalists have been active in many presidential administrations, beginning with the man who started it all: Abraham Lincoln. Of course, some administrations have been worse than others: Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, for example. But in the modern era, George H.W. Bush introduced America to the neocon agenda–complete with perpetual war and a burgeoning Police State. And every single presidential administration since Bush I (Clinton, Bush II, and Obama) has merely continued and escalated this agenda. For all intents and purposes, America has had only one continuous presidential administration since Bush I. And the globalists will do their very best to ensure that this agenda continues unabated into the next presidential administration, be it Republican or Democrat.

But Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton represent the very pinnacle of the ideal globalist-controlled candidate. If you value your liberties at all, you better pray to God that neither of these people is elected President next year. As I said, anyone who would want to see a Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton presidential race in 2016 has a death wish for America.

Here’s What Hillary Clinton’s Attempt To Re-Create Herself Tells Us About American Politics

ALEXANDRIA, VA — Hillary Clinton, in announcing her presidential candidacy, is now engaged in an effort to re-create herself.

The unusual commercial she used to introduce her campaign has received critical reviews, from liberals and conservatives, Republicans and Democrats.

Liberal columnist Richard Cohen wrote that, “It looked like one of those Vaseline-lensed dog-food commercials, so lacking substance that I wondered if I had summoned the wrong video from the Internet. … All I can remember is a bunch of happy people and Clinton saying something about being on the side of the middle class. … I think it is no mere coincidence that the Clinton campaign now has the services of Wendy Clark, a senior marketing specialist from Coca-Cola. Maybe Clinton will ‘teach the world to sing.’”

This announcement video was followed by Clinton’s strange van ride to Iowa, complete with video of her ordering a burrito bowl at Chipotle. She did this while wearing dark glasses, as did her aide Huma Abedin, which produced security-camera pictures making if appear that they were traveling incognito. She said that she would be an advocate for people like “the truckers that I saw on I-80 as I was driving here.”

Perhaps appealing to authenticity would fail in Mrs. Clinton’s case. After losing to Richard Nixon in 1968, the Democratic Party candidate, Hubert Humphrey, conceded that his effort to be authentic, his real self, might have done him in: “It’s an abomination for a man to place himself completely in the hands of the technicians, the ghost writers, the experts, the pollsters and come out only as an attractive package.”

After all of her years in public life, no one really knows where Hillary Clinton stands on any issue. The one constant is her desire to be president.

In a cover article called “What Does Hillary Stand For?”, The Economist declares: “For someone who has been on the national stage for a quarter-century, her beliefs are hard to pin down. On foreign policy, she says she is neither a realist nor an idealist but an ‘idealistic realist.’

“In a recent memoir, she celebrates ‘the American model of free markets for free people.’ Yet to a left-wing crowd, she says, ‘Don’t let anybody tell you, that, you know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.’… Some candidates’ views can be inferred from the advisers they retain, but Mrs. Clinton has hundreds, including luminaries from every Democratic faction. Charles Schumer, her former Senate colleague from New York, called her ‘the most opaque person you’ll ever meet in your life.’”

In The Economist’s view, “Skeptics raise two further worries about Mrs. Clinton. Some say she is untrustworthy — a notion reinforced by the revelation that she used a private server for her e-mails as Secretary of State, released only the ones she deemed relevant and then deleted the rest. The other worry, which she cannot really allay, is that dynasties are unhealthy, and that this outweighs any benefit America might gain from electing its first female president.”

The Clinton candidacy tells us a great deal about the current state of American politics. We often forget that public opinion is usually carefully manipulated, in the present era, by an army of public relations consultants.

Discussing the start of a campaign some years ago, David R. Altman, chairman of the Altman, Stoller and Weiss advertising agency, assessed the influence of advertising upon American politics this way:

The annual exercise in political irrelevance has begun. Once again, the American viewing public is being subjected to a barrage of flashy thirty and sixty-second spot announcements urging votes for this candidate or that. T.V. has become the most destructive political force we have known. It is an open invitation to the demagogue, a path to elective office for the incompetent but glib candidate, and it is a definite deterrent for the brilliant but full office seeker. It has changed the rules of the game of politics from ‘let the better candidate have a chance to win’ to ‘let the most appealing candidate win.’

Mr. Altman charged that, “For the most part, political ads on T.V. perform what I consider to be a massive confidence game on the American people. Why? Because political commercials do not as a rule inform the electorate. They stimulate the emotions. They arouse passions. They polarize people on different sides of the political street. They use trickery — trick lighting, trick makeup, a full gamut of Hollywood special effects — and occasionally candidates have been known to tell lies on television. What has been the result? We consistently elect candidates who later ‘surprise’ us — who turn out to be different from the image perceived during the campaign.”

The well known political consultant David Garth once said, “You’ve seen one of my campaigns, you’ve seen them all.” His technique was to put together cinema variety clips of his candidate and show them on television. Illustrative of his technique was the 1969 reelection campaign of New York City Mayor John Lindsay, when Lindsay was an unpopular mayor. He won a second term in large part because of Mr. Garth’s advertising campaign in which Lindsay repeatedly told voters, “I made mistakes.” This approach, Garth recalled, was highly successful.

Now, Hillary Clinton is trying to become a person different from the one all of us have come to know, realizing that victory in the presidential race requires such a radical make-over. Is this really going to be a successful enterprise? Former Sen Jim Webb of Virginia, who is considering a presidential run of his own, says that “people are looking for leadership they can trust” and that Americans would like to go back to the party of Harry S. Truman and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Webb states: “Think about Harry Truman, what he would be saying to someone who told him he needed a consultant to show him how to dress or a lifestyle consultant to tell him that he needed to go to Walmart. You know, we need people who will, in politics, lead the same way that they live.”

Enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton’s candidacy is difficult to find among the liberal commentators who might be expected to be a bit more supportive. Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson wrote that, “The choreographed launch was over-thought, over-produced and, in the scheme of things, not terribly important in details. Everyone already knew she was running.”

Hillary Clinton’s candidacy tells us a great deal about contemporary American politics, none of it good.

Don’t Put Your Hope In ‘Conservatives’

“When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on.” –President Franklin D. Roosevelt

Conservatives are continuing on in their venture of shamelessness and stupidity, debating over the next presidential nominees that have been handpicked. Furthermore, in many cases, their records have proven them to be corrupt and ineligible.

Yet, all of this is overlooked by those who should know better. They go on as if to ignore the crimes that have been committed or as if it is the norm for representatives to violate their own oaths and transgress the law.

I ask you: are the conservatives talking about bringing Hilary Clinton to justice? Or are they talking about her chances of becoming the first woman president?

Are they talking about Marco Rubio and his ineligibility? Or are they talking about his chances of becoming the President of the United States? (Article 2, Section 1 The Constitution of the United States)

How about Jeb Bush? There is no difference between him and what America is complaining about concerning the current administration.

Or what of Rand Paul, the libertarian (without regard to the law), who wants to appease both the sodomites who want to marry along with supporters of traditional marriage?

Rand seems to believe that man created government and that he has a right to erect a government in his own image.

It is as if The Lord is saying to America, “You set up Kings, but not by Me” (Hosea 8:4).

The conservatives get the American people talking about the wrong issues; then, they get the same results. All the while, the American people are trying to figure out why they are confused (Daniel 9:7). This process is insanity: doing the same things and getting the same results – while expecting different results (Hosea 8:7).

These are the same people who have helped turn America’s glory into shame because they have left off knowledge and common sense.

Do you want resolve? Well, desperate times call for desperate measures. Bring forth judgment (Amos 5:24)!

For those who realize that this current, criminal administration has done nothing but bring disease, disgrace, lies and deceit, racial division, hatred, huckstering, socialism, poverty, world embarrassment, an illegal healthcare system, tyranny, and economic downfall to this country, also realize that the only remedy for corruption is justice (Psalm 94:16).

America needs to realize that across this nation, we are all saying the same things because we are all rooted in the same principles (Hosea 4).

Shut the mainstream programming off, especially the conservatives; for they, along with their viewers, are responsible for painting America into a corner.

But, some may ask, “Why should I care anymore? There is no hope.” (Jeremiah 18:12)

Yes, there is. The hope is found in what you do with the truth that has been given to you (Colossians 1:27). Do all that you can do, and leave the results up to God. But you first have to do.

There is a story told of a mule that fell into a well. As it sat in the pit of that well, it whined and whined until it could whine no more. During that time, one of the farmers heard the mule, came over, and noticed that it fell into that well and knew that if he did not get it out, it would soon die. So, the farmer gathered some of the local farmers to see how they could get the mule out. Without any lengthy debate, they just decided to leave that mule to die in the pit of that well. It was worthless, or so they thought. Each of the farmers went back to their farms to get their shovels, headed over to the well, and started to scoop the dirt to bury the mule.

Each scoop of dirt that was thrown into the well would land on the back of the mule. In desperation, with each scoop of dirt that was meant to bury him, he would simply shake it off and use the dirt that fell from his back as a stepping stone to trot right out of that hole that they meant to bury him in.

To those who are shaking it off and are in the good fight of faith (1 Timothy 6:12; James 2:18), to those who are bringing forth a labor of love (1 Thessalonians 1:3), to those who are bringing forth Judgment to establish righteousness (Isaiah 26: 9), and have come to the realization that we are overcoming this world (1 John 5:4) and are made more than conquerors through Him that loved us (Romans 8:37) and continue to stand in this warfare (Ephesians 6:12), I salute you.

Remember, God does not need a majority to prevail–just an obedient minority (1 Corinthians 1:29).

God is willing to give to His church what they are willing to fight for.
