WHY IS JEB BUSH RUNNING? My Own Cynical Conspiracy Theory

Jeb Bush's recent decision to announce his candidacy for the presidency is curious, to say the least.

Though the Republican National Committee and its ostensible chairman Reince Priebus appear bound at the hip to Bush; though the Washington Post has anointed him the GOP frontrunner; and though the former Florida governor has assembled a formidable set of financial backers; there's just one problem.

Bush has zero, none, zip, zilch, nada, no chance of winning a general election.

Many of his positions are those of a Democrat, including his troubling support of open borders and -- like his brother -- the federal takeover of education known as Common Core.

But Democrats despise the Bush brand, as do conservatives. So Democrats will never support him en masse, no matter how much money he raises and spends.

As for conservatives, in last weak's Iowa straw poll (as but one example), Jeb's finish was pathetic, trailing the winner Scott Walker, Rand Paul, and Mike Huckabee.

Without Democrats and conservatives, who exactly makes up Bush's constituency?

I have no earthly idea.

Thus, my conspiracy theory.

We all know that the RNC is actually run by Tom Donahue, president of the Chamber of Commerce. And Donahue, more than anything else, seeks cheap immigrant labor--the American economy, the American citizenry, the U.S. Constitutional system, and the civil society be damned.

Which explains Bush's borderline-insane pleas for open borders, Amnesty, and the inevitable voting rights and citizenship for tens of millions of illegal aliens.

Knowing all of this, why would the Chamber fund a Bush candidacy?

I can come to only one conclusion: the Chamber seeks to see Hillary Clinton elected President.

In the Chamber's formulation, Obama's illegal Executive Orders on Amnesty must not be reversed. Therefore, Hillary Clinton must win the presidency.

My belief, then, is that Jeb Bush's campaign is a false flag operation. Jeb, in fact, may be delusional enough to believe that he can win election (which says plenty about him). But the men behind the curtain are nothing but cold, ruthless pragmatists. Which is why they are, in effect, funding Hillary Clinton through the persona of Jeb Bush.

The voting population is not exclusively Dems and Repubs and there are many who are independent and belong to neither party. Bush could win a general election with moderate and liberal Repubs, moderate Dems and enough Indies.

Your conspiracy theory really doesn't hold water - Jeb has expressed interest in the Presidency for a long time and has also been pro-immigration reform for a long time (as has Bush 43). Jeb's wife and children are of Hispanic origin also.

He certainly seems to have the GOP Establishment behind him and can raise tons of money in campaign contributions, so all in all, he is a formidable candidate in the primaries and the general election.

And he would be a much better President than Hillary.

The Republicans have thrown the last two elections. If Jeb actually wins the nomination you can bet Hillary will be a shoe in. Keep in mind the only difference between most Republicans is the methodology of arriving at the same goal ... more power.

The next president was already decided at Davos. I agree that they most likely have decided on Hillary Clinton. She would also be extremely useful because they have so much dirt on her that she'd have to dance to their every tune. I suspect they'll have to shoot her up with all sorts of drugs to get her to even survive the four years of a presidency.
