The Bush family dynasty that’s reigned supreme in American politics for over 40 years was brought to an abrupt end as Trump-backed Attorney General Ken Paxton beat the son of Jeb, George P. Bush, Tuesday night.
Paxton, who’s served as the Lone Star State’s attorney general since 2015, clobbered Bush handily during the Republican primary runoff election beating him by a 2-to-1 margin, leaving the former two-term Texas land commissioner out of a job.
“Things didn’t go as we planned. But after the tragic events of earlier today, it’s important to keep life’s temporary disappointments in perspective,” Bush said in a statement attempting to deflect from the stinging loss in his home state. “There are grieving parents in South Texas today. My family and I are grieving with them.”
The defeat means the Bushes, at one time a major force to be reckoned with on par with the Clintons, for the first time in 40 years have no family member holding political office.
Of course, many Infowars readers are also aware of the family’s close ties to the Yale secret society dubbed The Order of Skull & Bones, whose “Bonesmen” rosters boast several Bushes, including George W. Bush, his father President George H.W. Bush, and his grandfather, former Connecticut Senator Prescott Bush.
(Interestingly, The Order was sued in February 2009 by the descendants of Apache Chief Geronimo, who alleged in a federal lawsuit that the group was in possession of their ancestor’s skull – which members are alleged to have posed with in group photos for decades.
The skull was reportedly stolen from the warrior’s grave at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, by members of Skull & Bones who were stationed at the base, with some accounts alleging Prescott Bush played a role in the theft. The lawsuit was dismissed the following year.)
This is the latest development for the Bush family which has managed to generate headlines in recent weeks with the FBI foiling a plot to assassinate W, in addition to the former president also being tricked by Russian comedian pranksters.
The defeat also speaks to the power of Donald Trump’s endorsement, with Paxton receiving the nod after having gone to bat for the former president in the aftermath of the 2020 election.
In the days after the election was stolen in 2020, Paxton fought hard for Trump, going as far as to file a federal complaint with the US Supreme Court calling on the Justices to weigh in on the unlawful last-minute changes in voting rules that he said disenfranchised Texas voters.
George P. pushed hard to receive the Trump endorsement last year, pledging “unyielding loyalty” to the former president and even attempting to win over Trump voters in Texas with pro-Trump merchandise.
I missed out on the @georgepbush swag yesterday: The koozie says "this is the only Bush that likes me. This is the Bush that got it right. I like him" – Donald Trump #txlege pic.twitter.com/pFTzQCmoRG— Scott Braddock (@scottbraddock) June 3, 2021
