Word has it that Jeb Bush (R) is the current frontrunner for the GOP 2016 Presidential nomination. And his opponent will in all probability be Mrs. Clinton (D). So, what would be the difference if either of them won? Or, to put it in her words, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
Here’s a little situational breakdown from yours truly:
1) Middle Eastern issues:
The Bush clan has well-known close ties to our “allies”, the Saudi royals, whose government provided, or provides, funding to jihadis who blew up our soldiers and Marines in Afghanistan and Iraq. And BTW, was it not true that 15 of the 19 jihadis who carried out the 9/11/01 attacks were from Saudi Arabia? Anyone believe that Jeb Bush is really going to denounce his brother’s and father’s support of the Saudis?
And what about Hillary?
Well, her closest advisor for years upon years has been Huma Abedin, whose familial ties to the Muslim Brotherhood’s upper echelons are well-documented. And didn’t Congresswoman Michele Bachmann pay a price for raising the question, via a letter she wrote to Representative Keith Ellison (D), as to whether a little background check on Ms. Abedin might be in order.
2) National Security, vis a vis our borders:
The Bush clan, in particular Bush 43, has a history of not only refusing to actually close the southern border, but one of W’s two greatest “regrets” was that he didn’t get that “immigration reform” (read that one: amnesty) passed before he left office (remember, “See you at the signing.”?). If you want to know what Jeb Bush believes about amnesty, read this.
Hillary claims to be a “huge supporter” of comprehensive immigration reform (again, read that: amnesty) for millions of illegals who have invaded our nation. And the WashPo report says she expects the Republican-controlled House of Representatives to lead the way in passing the bill.
In my recenty-published thriller novella, A Summons To Perdition: Book 2, I wrote about the huge historical precedent set by an ancient empire which invited its own final destruction by allowing tens of thousands of impoverished immigrants to enter its borders. The parallels between what happened to the Roman Empire in the late 4th century and what is happening to our nation today are beyond astonishing.
So, which of these two contenders is going to save us from what befell the Romans?
