How can anyone possibly be fooled by any of this? And by the way, these are all the same advisors Ted Cruz was hanging out with during George W. Bush’s 2000 election when he was a Bush advisor and lawyer…

Do you realize if this nation elects Jeb Bush as its next president, the last three republican presidents will all be Bushes?
If that’s not an unofficial dynasty, America, I’m not sure what is.
To make matters even worse in the same old, same old department, the guy is already surrounding himself with all the same disastrous advisors that his brother and father had when they were both president.
Via the Chicago Sun Times:
If that’s his story, then it’s a puzzle why his political operation decided to unveil his list of foreign policy advisers just before his speech. That’s because most of the almost two dozen names served in the administrations of George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
The Jeb Bush roll call of national security and foreign policy experts include loyal Bushies who served Bush 41 and 43: James Baker, Michael Chertoff, Michael Hayden, Tom Ridge, George Shultz and that Iraq hawk of hawks, Paul Wolfowitz. Locking up these GOP establishment figures may help Bush jump out ahead of what is shaping up as a crowded Republican primary field. That’s an inside game.
Yeah, it’s an inside game all right.
It reads like the playbook of Fascism 2.0: New World Order or bust.
Council on Foreign Relations member James A. Baker III was George H. W. Bush’s secretary of state and his White House chief of staff. How much more really needs to be said there? Here, I’ll say some anyway. James Baker is also a senior counselor for the Carlyle Group with the Bin Ladens as his major investors up to and on the day of 9/11. In fact, he was reportedly watching the attacks on the twin towers on television inside the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington D.C. alongside Bin Laden family representatives who were attending an annual Carlyle Group conference with him that morning. He has a glorious warmongering past which includes threatening a retaliatory nuclear strike on Iraq during the first gulf war.
George Shultz has been involved in so much he could probably net his own article. A few highlights include the fact that he took over as treasury secretary right after the decision was made to abolish the gold standard — a decision he supported along with Paul Volcker — then went on to participate in the Paris international monetary conference in 1973 which formally abolished the Bretton Woods system. He was executive VP of military contractor Bechtel, an is currently chairman of JP Morgan Chase’s International Advisory Council. He formed the Nuclear Security Project with Henry Kissinger. He was a member of the so-called “Vulcans,” the warhawk policy group that included Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz (also on Jeb’s list below) and Condoleezza Rice. Oh, and Schultz is considered the “father of the Bush Doctrine” — due to his total advocacy of preventative war.
James Baker and George Shultz have also frequented Bohemian Grove; Tom Ridge, mentioned below, claimed he turned down an invitation to what Richard Nixon called, “the most faggy goddamned thing you could ever imagine.”
Former Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff is the man responsible for bringing the TSA full body scanners to our airports, you know, to save our grandmothers from terrorists, while making a huge kickback from the company that made them Rapiscan (along with George Soros who also held a share of the company). Chertoff is the guy behind building DHS up into the full-on gestapo it is today. Prior to that, he failed to really investigate 9/11 as the Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division on 9/11. His cousin is even the guy who wrote the Popular Mechanics propaganda piece that tried to debunk 9/11 “conspiracy theories.” In fact, Chertoff has been involved since the first false flag at the World Trade Center in 1993, guiding that “investigation” too. He’s also responsible for the government’s failed Hurricane Katrina response… you might remember the bloated dead bodies of our citizens rotting in the streets of New Orleans for days? Thanks FEMA!
As for Michael Hayden, just watch this video of the Council on Foreign Relations member and former director of the NSA and CIA’s take on the fact that our 4th Amendment does not — that’s does NOT — include probable cause:
Just… what… what else can anyone say here?
How about this: you know all that stuff Edward Snowden has leaked? Hayden is directly responsible for much of the warrantless wiretapping and illegal surveillance of American citizens after 9/11. Just recently in January 2015, Hayden gave a speech where he essentially stated that ‘9/11 gave him permission reinterpret the 4th Amendment’:
“And I didn’t need to ask ‘mother, may I’ from the Congress or the president or anyone else. It was within my charter, but in terms of the mature judgment about what’s reasonable and what’s not reasonable, the death of 3,000 countrymen kind of took me in a direction over here, perfectly within my authority, but a different place than the one in which I was located before the attacks took place. So if we’re going to draw this line I think we have to understand that it’s kind of a movable feast here.”
Tom Ridge was the first ever Homeland Security secretary when the department was first created in the wake of 9/11 at a time when the country saw a massive clamp down on our constitutional rights like no other in our history. After leaving DHS, he joined the board of one of the biggest RFID manufacturers Savi Technology, a company which contracted with the Department of Defense and Homeland Security to provide RFID inventory control and biometric tracking of workers at secure facilities like airports. Ridge declared, “Biometrics and RFID will make us safer.”
Finally last but certainly not least, Paul Wolfowitz was deputy secretary of defense under George W. Bush and under secretary of defense for policy under George H. W. Bush. He is one of the key members of PNAC — the Project for a New American Century — the neocon think tank that formulated many of the aggressive strategies of the W administration and seemingly foretold the attacks on 9/11 as a “new Pearl Harbor” catalyst for war.
Wolfowitz first crossed paths with George H. W. Bush during the Ford Administration when the power and scope of intelligence and defense was coming under attack. Then-CIA director Bush assigned Wolfowitz to what became known as “Team B,” a group who set out to counter the prevailing assumptions Bush believed underestimated Soviet power, instead recommending significant increases in military budgets and national security projects to ramp up security against perceived Russian aggression.
In the George H. W. Bush administration, this guy crafted the “Wolfowitz doctrine” which aimed to “ensure that no rival superpower is allowed to emerge in Western Europe, Asia or the territories of the former Soviet Union.” This one-world superpower policy was the backbone of Bush Sr.’s New World Order speeches and anticipated the George W. Bush-era PNAC policy — upon which Jeb Bush was a signatory. As if that’s not enough, Wolfowitz was also head of the World Bank.
As if anyone is even fooled when they hear Jeb Bush bothering to say the line, “I’m my own man.”
Sure you are, Jebby… Sure you are.
