(Truthstream Media) After the New Hampshire primaries last night, everyone who still believes in the ridiculously rigged presidential election process in this country is wondering how in the hell John Kasich managed to get 2nd place, and how in the hell Jeb Bush managed to stay in somehow even though he has been consistently trailing everyone this entire time.
Well, here’s a big fat clue. It comes from the summer of 1999, just before Jeb’s brother George W. was (s)elected.
Kasich had a brief run for president which was announced in March 1999. Just a few months later in July, he was dropping out and supporting his “friend” George W. Bush.
Or, rather, “bowing” to him:
In fact, for a time Kasich was supposedly on the table as George W.’s potential running mate.

But… it seems the establishment was too afraid that a Bush-Kasich ticket might “give the appearance of two fraternity brothers.”

In fact, the love affair involved playful banter about the possibility of Kasich being W.’s VP, with declarations from both that the two were “philosophically compatible”:
“He’s going to fit perfectly on my team,” George W. playfully said in response to Kasich’s pledge to campaign for Bush.
Fast forward to presidential race 2016, and we find a commentary in the Chicago Tribune today titled, “What Republicans Lose if Jeb Bush Fails,” which points out on cue, “If this were a script, you would now write in a timely entrance by the seasoned, well-credentialed Jeb Bush.”
SINCE IT IS A SCRIPT, we can easily see what’s going on here.
In fact, it was Jeb that pointed out Kasich ran a “one-state strategy” aimed solely at New Hampshire which he somehow managed to come from nowhere and get 2nd place in… a campaign that held others much higher in the polls at bay while magically allowing Jeb to eek by and even somehow get delegates when it’s a shock that Jeb is even still somehow in this “race”. New Hampshire, it has now been declared, breathed “new life” into both Kasich and Jeb’s campaigns.
Gee… a New Hampshire-only campaign otherwise seems like pretty bad campaign strategy… unless the strategy all along was to help a good friend’s brother to bat back the competition. It will be no surprise when Kasich once again bows to another Bush.
In fact, the whole campaign on the GOP side is being run as if the entire strategy is to get this historically unpopular dynasty brat elected. Ted Cruz, the pretend tea party conservative who cheated in Iowa by lying about Ben Carson dropping out to suck up Carson’s votes, is also a long-time Bush minion as we’ve previously (and repeatedly) reported. He was a Bush lawyer and advisor when he met his Goldman Sachs, Council on Foreign Relations, pro-North American Union wife Heidi — also a Bush advisor.

Cruz would lay down for Jeb in a heartbeat. So would Kasich. So would Floridian Rubio who Jeb has previously declared he is a “huge fan” of.
You see where we’re getting at here? Any of these guys would gleefully be VP for Jeb in less than two seconds if tapped.
On top of that, don’t forget about the potential of a brokered convention. What if all these closeted Bush-ites get together like good little boys and hand over their delegates to Bush? It could happen. And all the Trump supporters have to realize by now that the elite won’t let Trump anywhere near the White House, no matter how popular he is in the polls. Ron Paul was real popular once upon a time, and look what happened to him.
We’ve said it a hundred times but here it is once again for effect: the game, folks, is rigged. The people running it who want dynasties like the Bush clan in power again and again but know the public can’t stand them anymore have to make this election puppet show look legit somehow.
And in other news, Hillary will magically walk away from the New Hampshire primary with more delegates than Bernie Sanders, despite the fact that he beat her by a landslide there, and her hair-thin win in Iowa was only secured due to a “virtually improbable” coin toss (yeah right) that is still under investigation.
Rigged. The whole thing. Rigged. You might as well light your vote on fire and dance around it for all the good it will do you come November.
It’s just like Mark Twain said: “If voting made any difference they wouldn’t let us do it.”
