It Turns Out Jeb Bush is the Guy Who’s Started All the #GoldenShowers” Nonsense

Imagine being Jeb Bush right now. He raised the most money of any Republican candidate for president during the primary stage of the the 2016 cycle (more than all the other candidates combined, in fact). He was preordained by the media and the GOP Establishment as the man who was going to be their standard-bearer.  Not only did he fail at becoming the nominee, he was humiliated and memed into oblivion. Him and his family repeatedly spoke out against Donald Trump, even after Trump secured the nomination. And now, come to find out, Jeb Bush is also the one behind the ridiculous “#PissGate/#GoldenShowers” nonsense.

From Reuters

Steele was initially hired by FusionGPS, a Washington, DC-based political research firm, to investigate Trump on behalf of unidentified Republicans who wanted to stop Trump’s bid for the GOP nomination. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reported that Steele was initially hired by Jeb Bush, one of Trump’s 16 opponents in the 2016 Republican primary. It was not immediately possible to verify the BBC’s report.

He was kept on assignment by FusionGPS after Trump won the nomination and his information was circulated to Democratic Party figures and members of the media. 

What a fitting end for ol’ Jeb. He just keeps on losing to Trump on every level imaginable.

    Looks Buzzfeed not only fucked themselves but half of Trump’s most powerful political enemies too, now that the stupid thing became a sensation all the details of how this bewildering “report” was produced will get excavated.

    …Jeb uses 4chan?

    • If this is true (who knows? Any news from media is assumed to be fake), than it’s probably a mishmash of stuff from the original piece by 4chan (given to Steele by Rick Wilson) with additional things. The 4chan author commented back in November that the Russia stuff wasn’t in the original paper, it was added to advance the narrative.

    Yeb is really bitter about it isn’t he?

    So as I reconstruct it:

    Christopher Steele was a phony giving phony reports to his bosses at MI6.

    They found out and asked him to take early retirement. (He’s only 52 now.)

    He went into corporate espionage selling guess work and rumor to clients. Since some of any guesses come true, it would not be apparent. Possibly he did psyops spreading rumors about rivals of his client to drive down stock prices.

    Jeb Bush probably never knew the guy was a phony — like his brother George who got us into a war by believing a phony codenamed Screwball. Considering their dad was the Director of the CIA ….

    Steele made a fake report and did it so sloppily that he did not even proofread it.

    His second career as a fake spy is now in jeopardy and he has done a Sarkisian, staying with some friends while pretending that there is a threat.

    Since you wrote your article Reuters has withdrawn its claim that Jeb Bush had paid for this.

    Reuters source was the BBC. The BBC said it was Jeb had hired Steele initially but Steele came up with the fake news later.

    An American has to remember that the American standards for libel are “reckless, malicious and untrue”. An American can defend himself by showing that his report, even if proven untrue, was well reckoned.

    As an example the London Times was successfully sued by a Russian gangster for calling him a gangster. There was already an arrest warrant waiting for him for gangster activities if he ever touched down in England so he was probably a gangster. But it hadn’t been proven because he was still hiding out in Russia.

      So who the hell did this Steele guy NOT fleece and NOT misinform in America’s political establishment? The way it’s sounding at this point the guy must have been the most prolific snake oil profiteer active during the 2016 election, a corrupt private dick specializing in pouring exactly the form of liquid bullshit into their ears that they wanted to believe.

      • Seele writes for Gawker then?

        • Maintenance Renegade

          No, Gawker is a wrestling fan-site that writes about suplexes, folding chairs and produces top ten lists of reasons why Hulk Hogan is literally the greatest man alive. Those subjects seem to be outside of Steele’s expertise.

    So now we aren’t denying that Trump is a pisser, we’re just trying to blame Jeb Bush for it?
    😂😂😂😂😂

  • Toastrider

    FusionGPS has an interesting pedigree. It’s an opposition research firm tied to the Democrats, and prior to this, they were responsible for a spin-doctored report that somehow ‘exonerated’ Planned Parenthood over those infamous videos that caused such a ruckus last year. They’ve also been implicated in attempts to dig up dirt on donors to various conservative causes.

    Liars gonna lie, I guess.

    Thanks for the article, but I hope you correct the grammatical error: “Him and his family.”

    Maybe Trump can make Kennebunkport into a national park or turn Jeb’s home into a golf course.
