    Busted ! CNN Uses Jeb Bush Staffer Planted In Audience To Frame Donald Trump Narrativ

    Busted ! CNN Uses Jeb Bush Staffer Planted In Audience To Frame Donald Trump Narrative/Hit Job….

    Posted on October 13, 2015 by sundance

    During an appearance at a Jon Huntsman / The Hill “No Labels” event, a female audience member named Lauren Batchelder played the role of a female antagonist toward candidate Donald Trump.

    However, Ms. Batchelder is not just an average audience member. She’s a paid political operative of the GOP and a paid staff member of Team Jeb Bush:

    Within minutes of her scripted performance at the event, the producers of CNN were quickly editing soundbites and framing a narrative. That story was pushed into the media stream within hours. CNN’s Jeanne Moos was the delivery vehicle for the a hit piece.

    Here’s the CNN narrative as presented yesterday:

    However, as previously noted, it didn’t take long to discover that Lauren Batchelder was not just an ordinary audience member, she is actually a current staffer for Senator Kelly Ayotte and also working in New Hampshire on behalf of the Jeb Bush 2016 campaign.

    Batchelder’s LinkedIn profile shows she is a Jeb Bush For President 2016 staffer.

    Given Senator Ayotte’s position being pro-life, and contrasted against the framework of Ms. Batchelder’s line of questioning being completely opposite of the boss(es) she is working for, it doesn’t take long to figure out this was a planted Establishment GOPe hit job targeting Donald Trump:

    Of course, Ms Batchelder quickly began scrubbing her social media history trying to hide who she works for. Almost all of her Twitter history is now deleted, but not before much of it was able to be captured. Several other profiles remain available:

    [LinkedIn Profile HERE] [Twitter HERE] [Instagram HERE] [ FaceBook HERE]

    (LinkedIn Profile)
    From her Facebook Profile it appears Ms. Batchelder has quite a history as a Thespian (actress).

    [ You can read more of the texts within her deleted tweets HERE Not surprisingly most of them are disparaging toward Donald Trump and Ben Carson ]
    It is amazingly pathetic how the RINO Caucus has to operate in order to try and eliminate their political opposition.

    Facebook Status: “With Jeb!”

    This is an embarrassing fail on behalf of the establishment GOP and in particular Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio.
    This current fail also exemplifies how the broadcast media, specifically CNN, is willing to assist the republican cause when there is a mutual benefit to the elimination of an enemy.
    However, it is also further evidence of the entire construct of the Jeb Bush alliance. There are eight candidates remaining in the race specifically to assist Jeb Bush and help him win the nomination. They are:

    • Jeb Bush
    • Marco Rubio (FL)
    • Carly Fiorina (VA)
    • Chris Christie (NJ)
    • John Kasich (OH)
    • Lindsey Graham (SC)
    • Mike Huckabee (AR)
    • George Pataki (NY)
    • Jim Gilmore (VA)

    A vote for any of these fraud candidates will only result in a later endorsement of Jeb Bush and the transference of delegates to assist his nomination efforts. This was/is the original design of the road map created to help Jeb win in 2016. [ Much More Here ]
    The 2016 plan is similar in many ways to how Mitt Romney was able to win the nomination in 2012. If you remove Donald Trump – Ben Carson becomes Herman Cain, Ted Cruz becomes Newt Gingrich and Jeb Bush replaces Mitt Romney.
    It is all by design, all of it; and the only thing standing between TEAM JEB and achieving this outcome is:

    Hence the GOPe apparatus is going to use every trick they have deployed in the past to stop Donald Trump from winning the nomination.

    Also, don’t be surprised to see them use the same tactics previously deployed against Senate Candidate Chris McDaniel in Mississippi 2014. Between now and removing their fingers from the grip of power, there’s going to be aSERIOUS Political WAR !

    Seeking Distance – Jeb Bush Spokesman on Audience Plant: “Lauren Is Not A Staffer”…

    Posted on October 13, 2015 by sundance

    The discovery that an antagonistic female questioner, Ms. Lauren Batchelder, (during a“No Labels” event yesterday) is actually a campaign worker for Jeb Bush, has created a rather embarrassing political situation for candidate Bush.

    In an effort to draw distance from the brutally obvious set-up, Governor Jeb Bush lead spokesman Tim Miller is now claiming Batchelder is not a campaign staffer:
    The Washington Post reports another

    Bush campaign spokesperson is also seeking to distance the campaign from the profoundly odd, seemingly planted, remarks made during the event:

    (WaPo) […] Allie Brandenburger, a spokeswoman for Bush’s campaign, said Batchelder is not a paid staff member and attended the convention on her own.

    “While this question was not sanctioned by the campaign,” Brandenburger said in an e-mail Tuesday morning, “we can’t help but notice Mr. Trump does seem to be very sensitive about being challenged by women.” (link)

    Meanwhile Ms. Batchelder has gone into hiding, is scrubbing her profiles, and is not responding to additional inquiry.
    WAS SHE A PLANT ? – Many people are specifically questioning why she would frame questions about abortion rights and women’s health issues while working for two republican candidates, Senator Kelly Ayotte and Governor Jeb Bush, who hold identical pro-life positions as candidate Trump.

    It would appear the line of questioning chosen by Batchelder required her to act “as if” she was presenting herself on the opposite side of her own beliefs, taunting and challenging candidate Donald Trump. Indeed, from that perspective and accepting the goal was of taunting Trump, it would appear Batchelder held an ulterior motive beyond asking an honest question as an audience participant.

    While it may well be that Bush campaign worker Lauren Batchelder took it upon herself to try and elevate her boss, Jeb Bush, by taunting candidate Trump, it looks entirely pathetic for the Bush team to now attempt to distance themselves from their own campaign intern.

    Talk-show-host Rush Limbaugh discussed the issue on his radio broadcast today, and the story has also been noted in international publications such as the Daily Mail and dozens of other U.S. media entities.

    In addition to the photographs of Ms. Lauren Batchelder with candidate Jeb Bush, both are also pictured together at rallies and marches as she worked earnestly on behalf of the Jeb Bush 2016 campaign:

    It seems more than a little disingenuous for the Jeb campaign -and various spokespeople- to be attempting distance between themselves and one of their own campaign staff, workers, interns or whatever title would customarily assigned to a political operative working on the candidate’s behalf.

    The issue was also discussed today during a Fox News Broadcast (@3:34 video):

    Beyond the controversy, whether or not Batchelder was planted by the Bush campaign, or whether on her own she just thought it would be cute to try and create an antagonistic moment for Trump (to the benefit the Bush campaign), is a larger part of the storyline.

    The bigger, perhaps more concerning, aspect to the entire matter is how quickly CNN was willing to produce a narrative using the Batchelder controversy.

    Did CNN even make any inquiry into who the lady within their story was? Or did CNN producers just inherently jump at the opportunity to create a narrative that fits their own desires and yet needs a particular willful blindness in production?
    It took CNN less than two hours (from the time of the questioning) for CNN to broadcast a Jeanne Moos segment amid all of their network media. It can only be reasonably assumed that the majority of the following production was canned, cued and ready for an opportunity to use it.

    Here’s what CNN did with the assembled product:

    GOP frontrunner Donald Trump takes to Twitter to criticize Jeb Bush, after news broke that a Bush campaign volunteer questioned Trump about women’s issues during a campaign event in New Hampshire on Monday.

    As Breitbart News earlier noted:

    At the town hall event, [Lauren] Batchelder asked “If you’re elected president, will I make the same as a man? And will I do what I want with my body?”

    “You’ll make the same if you do as good of a job,”Trump responded. “And I happen to be pro-life.”

    Bush’s spokesperson Allie Bradenburger tells Breitbart News that the young woman went on her own accord to the event, and her question was not sanctioned by the Bush campaign:

    Like many in NH, Lauren is a student at St. A’s who is passionate about and active in politics and attended this event on her own accord. While this question was not sanctioned by the campaign, we can’t help but notice Mr. Trump does seem to be very sensitive about being challenged by women.

    Lauren has never been paid staff, she has volunteered at events as she has for other candidates in NH.

    A spokesperson from the Bush campaign also tells Breitbart News Batchelder will be able to continue volunteering at campaign events in New Hampshire, as she does with other campaigns.

    Plants seem to be the trendy thing these days. Special interest groups love to use plants too. Just like everyone else on ALIPAC, I despise Bush, but even I know he probably wasn't personally involved in this. Not because it's beneath him, but because I'd like to think he has better things to do with his time. Let it go Trump, it's not worth it.
