This Man Wants To Be President: Bush Campaign Caught In A Black Lives Matter Lie

The Black Lives Matter movement has been disrupting several political candidates at speaking events of late, so one candidate, Jeb Bush, decided to get out in front of the issue and have a ‘face to face’ meeting with the group.

Trouble is, as with much of what Jeb Bush says, that was a lie.

Oh, he did have a meeting, but there was not a single Black lives Matter activist in attendance. Instead, Jeb met with a local elected official, a GOP lobbyist and a staffer from an anti-poverty organization.

Three people; and not one a Black Lives Matter activist. One was a member of the Las Vegas Urban League, and one was North Las Vegas Mayor Pro Tem Pamela Goynes-Brown, and Sean Fellows, a registered lobbyist for a communications firm was the third.

Jeb Bush said he was meeting with Black Lives Matter.

But that was a lie. And that’s how Jeb Bush rolls.

The lies have to be found out and publicized to show these rotters in their true colours

The same Republican establishment that anointed the last 2 Puppets Bush are now deperately trying to anoint yet another Puppet Bush. This latest Puppet has "raised" by far the most money of any of the Republican candidates.

Why should the country want or need a new Puppet Bush, after the last Puppet Bush presided over the wasteful, stupid war in Iraq as well as the crash of 2008. Not to mention 9/11.

Since the Iraq invasion and the years ensuing it our demonstrators have been gifted with Tony Blair's name which converts with ease on placards to 'B-Liar'. Pity that J. Bush's name isn't quite as easy to play with.
