Why Hillary, and Jeb Bush would be BAD for AMERICA The first argument against another Clinton candidacy is generational. Baby boomers, Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama will have accounted for 24 years of the presidency by 2016, which seems more than sufficient. Clinton's election potentially extends boomer influence in a manner that risks creating a generation gap that further increases political disaffection among young voters. The pressures of the White House amplify the afflictions of time. Arguably, an optimal president combines an earned wisdom and natural intellect with the residual energy of youth. No one does this by turning 70 during their first year as president, which would be Clinton's status. Although doctors pronounced her perfectly healthy after a recent scare with a blood clot on the brain, the probabilities of geriatric disease in office are very real for someone who might be 77 at the end of a second term. Like it or not Reagan's comportment during his last years suggests tha ...
A Tale of Two Presidential Vacations By Brian C Joondeph “Our character is what we do when we think no one is looking” is an aphorism from author H. Jackson Brown, Jr. Much of the life of an American president is public, yet much is not. The true character of the president may be revealed during moments away from the television cameras and news reporters. President George W. Bush and his wife Laura “[n]ever left Washington, D.C., until the day after Christmas,” writes Former White House reporter Joseph Curl. The reason was simple. A low-level White House staffer explained, “So all of us can be with our families on Christmas.” The “us” meant hundreds of staffers, police, Secret Service agents, and reporters who move with the president. President Obama and his family, in contrast, begin their Christmas vacation well before Christmas. His large entourage follows, most of them leaving their families behind to celebrate Christmas without them. Sure, Waikiki Beach is nice, but who wouldn ...
When George W. Bush, Jr. term ended, his father, George H. Bush, Sr. attempted to keep a grip on the White House by pushing his other son Jeb Bush and his daughter in law, Laura Bush run for President they both refused to run. Now, Jeb Bush, Fmr. Gov. of Florida who helped ( wink wink) his brother George W. to win a very chaotic and controversial Presidential Election in 2000. In 2000, Dan Rather was a highly qualified Anchorman with high integrity in this world for many many years. He read the election reports that were coming in and announced his perspective that Al Gore had won the Presidential Election of 2000. He was fired even though he was right. How dare he, Dan the Anchorman tell the truth. It cost him his livelihood because it set off a republican storm by exposing corruption and civil rights violations in Florida. It revised the way America would vote because the 2000 Bush Election was rigged and Florida's Gov., Jeb Bud was in the middle of it all.

Assistant Secretary of Defense under Reagan and then Secretary of the Navy. Senator from Virginia. Prolific writer. Articulate. Intelligent. Speaks fluent Vietnamese. One of his sons is an active duty Marine who served in Iraq during the Bush administration, a situation that led then newly sworn-in Senator Webb to say that he "felt like slugging [President George W.

Everyone agrees the immigration system is broken. Now is the time for local Texas business, community, elected, faith and labor leaders to work with Congress and the White House to improve the lives of all who live here through common sense immigration reform. I am committed to doing just that. In 2007, President George W. Bush tried to fix immigration; a bipartisan group has continued trying ever since. Every day Washington waits to act, millions of undocumented immigrants who live in the shadows but want to play by the rules and pay taxes have no way to get right by the law. A lot of people here in North Texas are stuck with this plight. Consistent with actions by previous Presidents starting with Eisenhower, President Obama will address the problem through executive action. Republican Congressional leaders have said that action may lead to them taking extreme measures in response. I hope Congress will avoid another government shutdown and address immigration reform now. If Congress wants to start with ...
FROM NEWSMAX: Even with Ginsburg on the job, the Obama administration has had a rocky relationship with the Supreme Court. The court historically has sided with the White House in a significant majority of cases it has heard. But the Obama administration has a losing record before the court, and has lost an unusually high number of cases in unanimous 9-0 decisions. Obama saw 20 unanimous defeats in the first 5 1/2 years of his administration, while his predecessor George W. Bush saw just 15 in his eight years in office. The court recently dealt a potential blow to Obama's signature effort, the Affordable Care Act, when it decided to hear a case challenging provisions of Obamacare. The bottom line, according to the source, is that the court just does not like the Obama administration and its continual disrespect of co-equal branches of the federal government. Footnote: The last Supreme Court justice nominated by a Democratic president and confirmed by a Senate Republican majority was Rufus Peckham — in 1 ...
They Knew It They KNEW they were committing war crimes... and LOVED it. WASHINGTON -- A six-year-old memo from within the George W. Bush administration that came to light this week acknowledges that White House-approved interrogation techniques amounted to "war crimes." The memo's release has called attention to what has changed since President Barack Obama took office, but it also raises questions about what hasn't. The Bush White House tried to destroy every copy of the memo, written by then-State Department counselor Philip Zelikow. Zelikow examined tactics like waterboarding -- which simulates drowning -- and concluded that there was no way they were legal, domestically or internationally. “We are unaware of any precedent in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, or any subsequent conflict for authorized, systematic interrogation practices similar to those in question here," Zelikow wrote. The memo has been obtained by George Washington University's National Security Archive and Wired's Spen ...

On October 16, 2001, President George W. Bush approved legislation requiring the American flag to be lowered to half-staff on all Federal buildings to memorialize fallen firefighters. Public Law 107-51 requires this action to occur annually in conjunction with observance of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service. American flags across the country will be lowered today, Sunday, October 12, 2014. This includes the U.S. Capitol and the White House. Flags at half-staff today honor and recognize the brave men and women who died protecting their communities from natural and manmade emergencies and disasters and those who carry on the proud tradition. May God bless the families of fallen firefighters and may He bless all those serving locally in our fire departments. We are blessed in Henderson County with the best fire protection anywhere.

Former president George W. Bush says his brother Jeb 'wants' the White House
Little known George W Bush created the Ebola virus in the White House kitchen right after causing a hurricane.
On this day September 11th 2001: At 7 p.m., President George W. Bush, who had spent the day being shuttled around the country because of security concerns, returned to the White House. At 9 p.m., he delivered a televised address from the Oval Office, declaring "Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve."
Liberal Media's View: CHILMARK, Mass. – President Barack Obama has spent less time away from the White House than his predecessors. But his two-week break on the resort island of Martha’s Vineyard and hours on the golf course have his detractors teeing up as they highlight the slew of foreign policy crises currently facing the United States. The criticism has the president’s aides confronting a question it faces whenever Obama gets away: Is there ever a good time for the commander in chief to take a few days off? Since becoming president, Obama has taken 20 vacations lasting two to 15 days. As of Friday, he has spent all or part of 138 days on “vacation.” By the same point in his second term, President George W. Bush spent 381 partial or complete days at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, and another 26 at the Bush Family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, according to CBS News reporter Mark Knoller’s widely respected record keeping on the presidency. Other recent American leaders also spent more ti ...

Paul’s comments come at a time of Republican frustration with President Obama’s use of 184 executive orders during his six and a half years in the White House. Obama has threatened to use more orders related to issues such as immigration, for instance, if Congress continues to remain in legislative gridlock. (By contrast, former President George W. Bush issued 291 such orders over the course of his two terms.) Wow rethink that Dictator nonsense! The real tyrant was Bush!

Subject: Conservatism is an abject failure. George W. Bush presented his valedictory, desperately seeking thanks and congratulations. So here goes: Thanks and congratulations, W, for showing the world that today's conservatism is an abject failure. Thanks to Bush, we know that conservatives are not fiscally responsible, they are not for small government, they don't stand up for moral values and they won't make Americans one bit safer. Conservatives aren't even true defenders of "free markets" -- having presided over the biggest market bailout in the world. After eight long years, Bush can no longer fool the public. Polls show that he is the most unpopular president in the history of survey research. When the 2006 and 2008 elections are considered together, Bush policies resulted in the landslide rejection of his party at both the federal and state levels. There are probably a hundred examples where Bush conservatism failed, but let's stick with the top 10. 1. The worst recession since the 1930s. The curre ...
***Obama Seeks $3.7 Billion To Meet ‘Moral Obligation’ At Border*** WASHINGTON (MCT) — President Barack Obama will seek $3.7 billion in emergency funds from Congress to meet the country’s “moral obligation” to care for unaccompanied minors who have flooded in recent months to the southwestern border, White House officials said Tuesday. Nearly half the money would go to the Department of Health and Human Services for food, housing and medical care for the tens of thousands of children and teenagers who have arrived at the border, senior Administration officials told reporters. The rest of the money would be aimed at deterring further migrants by strengthening law enforcement, going after smuggling networks that ferry people from Central America and expanding the number of deportation hearings. The spending plan, nearly double the $2 billion the White House initially said was the minimum amount it would seek, is certain to raise concern among budget hawks in Congress. The request reflects the Pr ...
It was one of the final pieces of legislation signed into law by President George W. Bush, a measure that passed without controversy, along with a pension bill and another one calling for national parks to be commemorated on quarters. “This is a piece of legislation we’re very proud to sign,” a White House spokesman, Tony Fratto, told reporters on Dec. 23, 2008, as the president put his pen to the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, named for a 19th-century British abolitionist. “This program has been very effective around the world in trying to stop trafficking in persons.” Now the legislation, enacted quietly during the transition to the Obama administration, is at the root of the potentially calamitous flow of unaccompanied minors to the nation’s southern border And now the U.S.A. is looking super hypocritical .

On Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, NBC chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd reacted to the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll showing President Barack Obama’s job approval rating at 41 percent, matching a previous low, and also finding 54 percent of those polled saying they no longer feel the president “is able to lead the country and get the job done.” According to Todd, this is a sign that the American public has determined this is the beginning of the end of Obama’s presidency and he likened it to then-President George W.

Paul Bedard Hillary Clinton, who sniffed to ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer Monday about being “dead broke” when leaving the White House in 2000, already had a $4 million book advance in her purse and $190,027 worth of gifts collected over eight years--and accepted as she and Bill Clinton handed the keys to George W. Bush. The Clintons took the motherlode of presents as friends were also pushing to get them thousands of dollars more in “housewarming gifts,” including a Faberge serving spoon for $510 and a Spode vegetable dish for $980. What was the rush?
Tonight, American comedian and political satirist Jon Stewart poked fun at Fox News for making far too much out of the way Bergdahl's father acted at the White House rose garden last week. If you recall, he showed up there with a long beard. Furthermore, he uttered the Arabic phrase, "Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim." I found it a smidgen odd, but it never really irked me the way it has irked some conservative commenters. Here's the thing: As Bernard Goldberg himself said on Fox News earlier tonight (*COUGH* @ Jon Stewart), having a beard does not make you a Muslim. Many, many, many others have uttered the exact same phrase while in the presence of the president, i.e., former President George W. Bush. I hate discrepancies like these, man. Now, I still stand the belief by conservatives that this deal should have never been made -- a sentiment also shared by many in Bergdahl's former platoon (not to mention many veterans). However, I say that we ought to focus on stuff like THIS (and the fact that Obama made t ...
John Gaultier ARE ALL OF YOU AWARE OF "Directive 51" The National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive (National Security Presidential Directive NSPD 51/Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-20, sometimes called simply "Executive Directive 51" for short), created and signed by United States President George W. Bush on May 4, 2007, is a Presidential Directive which claims power to execute procedures for continuity of the federal government in the event of a "catastrophic emergency". Such an emergency is construed as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions." The unclassified portion of the directive was posted on the White House website on May 9, 2007, without any further announcement or press briefings LOOK IT UP!!

By all rights, the EU and the rest of the world are protesting against Russian President Vladimir Putin's annexation of Crimea and his use of violence. But there is also reason to protest against the United StatesPresident Barack Obama, who is operating a low-intensity war far away from the country's own borders. It was George W. Bush who declared war against terrorism after the attacks on the U.S.A. on Sept. 11, 2001. The peace prize recipient, Barack Obama, has taken over not just the rhetoric, but also some of the methods of his warring predecessor. Since 2004, the U.S. Air Force, commissioned by the CIA, has killed suspected terrorists in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia via unmanned, remote controlled aircraft armed with guided missiles. After there was criticism of the Guantanamo detention camp, the U.S.A. began, with the help of drones, to kill suspected rebels instead of taking them captive. According to the White House, this tactic is successful. Barack Obama claims that no missiles are fired if i ...
How North Korea Could Cripple the U.S. A single nuke exploded above America could cause a national blackout for months. By R. JAMES WOOLSEY And PETER VINCENT PRY Over the past three days, North Korea has launched six short-range guided missiles or projectiles in tests that landed in the Sea of Japan. The launches were of a piece with Pyongyang's springtime custom of muscle-flexing, undertaken to extract concessions from the West in exchange for stopping the provocations. The Obama administration would do well to ignore these minor fireworks and focus on the much greater threat of a long-range North Korean missile carrying a nuclear warhead. So far President Obama has seemed content to parry North Korea's thrusts, much as his White House predecessor did. The George W. Bush administration did not distinguish itself in recognizing, or acting on, the danger from North Korea. Last month, in a worrying sign of similar detachment, Mr. Obama essentially dismissed the Defense Intelligence Agency conclusion that No ...

Raiole latest in a long list of CIA station chiefs revealed to the media… Identities of CIA station chiefs are no big secret… Much ado is being made of the White House mistakenly releasing the name of the CIA station chief in Kabul to the White House press pool reporters who re-sent the list to some 6000 reporters. The email was sent during President Obama's surprise visit to Bagram airbase in Afghanistan… The email sent by The Washington Post's White House reporter Scott Wilson was later amended with the name of station Mike Raiole deleted. Critics of the Obama administration are attempting to make political hay out of the disclosure of Raiole's name. There was also a rather pathetic attempt by the corporate media, including the Washington Post, Reuters, and the cable news networks, to display a form of bizarre patriotism by congratulating themselves on withholding Raiole's name from publication or broadcasting… Some administration critics suggested that the revelation of Raiole's name was akin t ...
WHITE HOUSE ACCIDENTALLY REVEALS THE IDENTITY OF THE CIA’S AFGHANISTAN CHIEF The White House mistakenly identified the Central Intelligence Agency’s top official in Afghanistan on Sunday, during President Barack Obama’s short, surprise visit to troops at Bagram Air Base. The official’s name was included on a list of names participating in a military briefing with Obama, which was provided to the press traveling with the president. The individual was identified as the “Chief Station Officer.” The list was then more widely distributed in a “pool report” — one reporter’s summary of the event that is passed on to all press on the White House media list, including those not on the trip. The Washington Post’s Scott Wilson was the pool reporter at Bagram Air Base on Sunday, and he noted the apparent mistake to the White House. Wilson asked White House officials whether they had meant to include the name, at which point they backtracked. The individual’s name has not been released on a bro ...

I was having a talk with my brother today about how I can't stand seeing Michelle Obama (Mooch) on TV. I never asked for her opinions or speeches and I really don't need them. I don't need her telling other people how to eat or how to exercise. Utter nonsense. And expensive nonsense, at that. I compared her to George W. Bush's wife and realized that neither of us could remember her personal name for several minutes! Laura. Yeah. That's it. Laura Bush. She was such a perfect First Lady that we couldn't even remember her name. That is how little she bothered or offended people while she lived in the White House.

THE Turd Blossom AIN'T NO BLOSSOM...HE'S ALL TURD Republican strategist/consultant/Fox "News" analyst Karl Rove has long thrived in gutter politics. His mastery of it was instrumental in getting George W. Bush elected to two terms in the White House. But reports this week that Rove said Hillary Clinton has brain damage are simply beyond the pale, even to those who used to admire him. “Thirty days in the hospital?” Rove said, according to the report. “And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.” First of all, Rove (who President Bush called "Turd Blossom") just flat-out lied about Clinton's hospital stay, which was three days, not 30. The rest of Rove's statment, which he repeated several times before a live audience, is simply a crass and disgusting attempt to start an unsubstantiated rumor about Clinton because he and the GOP are deathly afraid that Hillary will run for president. He was roundly c ...
Did you read that Congress formed a Select Committee to probe the Benghazi attack? Yes, the White House stopped saying it was caused by an anti-Muslim video too; now they think the fire at the U.S. consulate was ignited by global warming. They can’t blame George W. Bush, so they’re going after Al Gore. I read the Powerball lottery announced one winning ticket in last week’s drawing worth $150 million. The winner is a guy in Florida. As to how much in taxes he owes, the IRS says it’s too early to say because they don’t know yet if he’s a Democrat or a Republican.

FROM THE NEWSROOM: STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut judge has told a former Bush administration lawyer charged with attempted murder that he can't use a mental state defense at his upcoming trial. Superior Court Judge Richard Comerford in Stamford also told John Michael Farren on Thursday that he would not allow the Former White House counsel for President George W. Bush to make a mockery of the judicial system by employing more delaying tactics. The judge said the trial would go forward next month. The Advocate of Stamford reports that Farren called the judge's ruling "absolutely unjust" and vowed to appeal to a higher court. Farren is representing himself in the case. Prosecutors say he nearly beat his wife, Mary Margaret Farren, to death at their New Canaan home in January 2010.
The New York Times has a major story today on how many of Chris Christie's potential donors for a Presidential run are shifting to Jeb Bush who is becoming the Establishment favorite for the Republican nomination in 2016. My own sense is that Christie's candidacy is dead and that those who put George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush in the White House will try to do the same for Jeb Bush. I think that Jeb Bush is wrong about education, immigration, and foreign policy for starters. With a divided conservative movement, don't be surprised if yet another Bush becomes the Republican presidential nominee in 2016. Whatever happened to the once powerful Goldwater-Reagan conservative team? It is no more.
What do you think about another bush in the White House?.
President George W. Bush said his younger brother Jeb Bush would make a “great president,” as speculation builds that the Republican former governor of Florida might mount a run for the White House in 2016.

Strength for the Journey with Joe Stowell Friends in High Places “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” John 15:15 Most of us would like to be known by someone important—to have friends in High Places. So being invited to the White House to meet President George W. Bush was a pretty exciting moment for me. As I waited for my turn to greet him, my mind raced to think of what I would say. Since no one had clued me in to the protocol and with no one there to introduce me, I thought it would be right to introduce myself and tell him what I did for a living. So, I decided my opening line would be something like, “Mr. President, my name is Joe Stowell and I serve as the President of Moody Bible Institute in Chicago.” I must admit, secretly I was hoping that his eyes would light up and he’d say, “Oh yes, Moody Bible Institute. I’ve heard about ...
So Jeb Bush is considering running for President! Seriously, Michael Bolton would do a *** of a lot better than a Bush will ever do! George H. W. Bush was terrible, George W.

In the leaked paintings first revealed last year by hacker “Guccifer,” Bush seemed to be wrestling with himself. I stand by my original positive assessment of his more personal work from my Feb. 13, 2013 column, “The artwork of George W. Bush.” His imaginative subjects included: his feet sticking out of bathtub water; his partial reflection in a mirror; and a dog staring mournfully through metallic gates at the far-away White House. Unfortunately, the Bush camp is now running away from his affecting, early period. “When asked about the bathing paintings in interviews ramping up to the exhibition, Bush distanced himself from them — and indirectly ridiculed anyone who took them seriously — by saying that he had only painted them to shock his teacher,” wrote Smith. In an April 4 “Today” show segment with Jenna Bush Hager, his daughter and a NBC contributing correspondent, when she brought up the bathroom self-portrait, he derisively compared his likeness to Alfred E. Neuman.
I just shared a story about how former President George W. Bush got in his car and drove to Fort Hood after the shooting to visit the injured and families of the ones who died. He was asked to leave by the White House so our "so called" president could come days later for photo ops in a gym but never stepped a foot in the hospital. Here's my thought: I'm thinking that if our next candidates for President don't have an American name, they sure as *** don't need to be president. I mean this man has totally destroyed what faith I had left in our government. Our soldiers fight and die to protect his *** and all he can think of is a photo opportunity? I'm not opposed to a colored president but for the love of God not a Barack Obama!!! Can we get a Junior, Billy Bob, Abraham or something? This man has totally sucked as President. Rant over. Thank You!
Clinton and Lagarde high five female political power New York (CNN) - Though Hillary Clinton demurred Thursday about any chance she’ll run for president in 2016, she seemed every bit the candidate during an evening appearance. The Former Secretary of state participated in a question and answer session with International Monetary Fund chair Christine Lagarde at the Women in the World forum in New York, and an enthusiastic audience seemed to see the pair as future world leaders. Moderator and New York Times columnist Tom Friedman prodded the two women about whether they might run for larger roles — Clinton for U.S. president and Lagarde for European Commission head.

Now say I lied ! ! carmen In the United States , a report by the Senate Intelligence Committee published by The Washington Post showed that during seven years after the attacks of September 11, 2001 , the American spy agency has used brutal torture techniques against terrorism suspects arrested . Including against those who had already revealed everything they knew . Six thousand three hundred pages reveal how the CIA hid from the government itself and the American People the tortures committed against terror suspects in prisons funded by the agency in various parts of the world. The brutalities took place between late 2001 and late 2008 , during the whole term of President George W. Bush . When he took over the White House , Barack Obama ordered the closure of prisons . But before that , when Congress raised suspicions about the use of torture , the CIA argued that detainees only revealed new information about terrorist actions when they were subjected to enhanced interrogation , a code for brutal treatm ...
For those of you who continue to cling to this utter failure of a President... on so many levels... Chickens come home to roost for Obama By Michael Goodwin March 30, 2014 It is impossible to dismiss as mere coincidence the Russian Bear’s invasion of Ukraine and the continuing mayhem of the Affordable Care Act. In their own ways, each reflects the full flowering of the policies of Barack Obama. His chickens are coming home to roost, and what a mess they are making. Obama’s sixth year in the White House is shaping up as his worst, and that’s saying something. He’s been in the Oval Office so long that it is obscene to blame his problems on George W. Bush, the weather or racism. Obama owns the world he made, or more accurately, the world he tried to remake. Nothing important has worked as promised, and there is every reason to believe the worst is yet to come. The president’s casual remark the other day that he worries about “a nuclear weapon ­going off in Manhattan” inadvertently reflected th ...
When George W. Bush was president, 61 percent of Democrats considered NSA surveillance to be "unacceptable", but now that Obama is in the White House, only 34 percent of them consider it to be "unacceptable". Or...45% believe my guy is good regardless of his beliefs. And I'm sure the numbers work the same with the Republicans. You get the government you deserve.
All the self-righteous huffing and puffing in Washington over Ukraine jars on European and especially Russian ears after the multiple U.S.-led invasions and interventions in other people's countries of recent years. It's difficult to say what is more astonishing: the double standards exhibited by the White House, or the apparent total lack of self-awareness of U.S. officials.Secretary of State John Kerry risked utter ridicule when he declared it unacceptable to invade another country on a "completely trumped-up pretext," or just because you don't like its current leadership. Iraq in 2003 springs instantly to mind. This is exactly what George W. Bush and Tony Blair did when they "trumped up" the supposed threat posed by the hated Saddam Hussein's fabled weapons of mass destruction.Simon TisdallLike Saddam, the Taliban leadership in place in Afghanistan in 2001 was deeply objectionable.

incredibly, President George W. Bush told French President Jacques Chirac in early 2003 that Iraq must be invaded to thwart Gog and Magog, the Bible’s satan agents of the Apocalypse. Honest. This isn’t a joke. The president of the United States, in a top-secret phone call to a major European ally, asked for French troops to join American soldiers in attacking Iraq as a mission from God. Now out of office, Chirac recounts that the American leader appealed to their “common faith” (Christianity) and told him: “Gog and Magog are at work in the Middle East…. The biblical prophecies are being fulfilled…. This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase his people’s enemies before a New Age begins.” This bizarre episode occurred while the White House was assembling its “coalition of the willing” to unleash the Iraq invasion. Chirac says he was boggled by Bush’s call and “wondered how someone could be so superficial and fanatical in their beliefs.” After the ...

Just discovered this story. It’s a bit dated, but I still found it funny. While visiting England, George W. Bush is invited to tea with the Queen. He asks her what her leadership philosophy is. She says that it is to surround herself with intelligent people. He asks how she knows if they’re intelligent. “I do so by asking them the right questions,” says the Queen. “Allow me to demonstrate.” She phones Tony Blair and says, “Mr. Prime Minister. Please answer this question: Your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child is not your brother or sister. Who is it?” Tony Blair responds, “It’s me, ma’am.” “Correct. Thank you and good-bye, sir,” says the Queen. She hangs up and says, “Did you get that, Mr. Bush?” “Yes ma’am. Thanks a lot. I’ll definitely be using that!” Upon returning to Washington, he decides he’d better put the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to the test. He summons Jesse Helms to the White House and says, “Sen ...

Victor Davis Hanson National Review March 11, 2014 4:00 AM Obama: Ike Redivivus? Obama admirers have created a complete distortion of “the Eisenhower era.” By Victor Davis Hanson In critique of the George W. Bush administration, and in praise of the perceived foreign-policy restraint of Obama’s first five years in the White House, a persistent myth has arisen that Obama is reminiscent of Eisenhower — in the sense of being a president who kept America out of other nations’ affairs and did not waste blood and treasure chasing imaginary enemies. Doris Kearns Goodwin, Andrew Bacevich, Fareed Zakaria (“Why Barack Is like Ike”), and a host of others have made such romantic, but quite misleading, arguments about the good old days under the man they consider the last good Republican president. Ike was no doubt a superb president. Yet while he could be sober and judicious in deploying American forces abroad, he was hardly the non-interventionist of our present fantasies, who is so frequently used and ...

set the record straight: Eight months into President George W. Bush's second term, the Washington Post wrote that Bush's frequent trips to his Texas ranch symbolized "a lackadaisical approach to the world's most important day job" and gleefully noted that Bush was intent on setting the record for being on "vacation"--or away from Washington, D.C.--for the most number of days of any president. But when President Barack Obama vacations in Hawaii, sets up a fantasy golf vacation for himself with Butch Harmon and Tiger Woods, averages more than a vacation a month in 2013 while purporting to be a man of the people and demanding the rich pay their fair share, and playing sequester politics by shutting down White House tours, the mainstream media is silent. And while Bush spent more time outside of Washington than Obama, it is also worth nothing that nearly all of Bush's vacations were trips back to his Texas ranch or family vacation homes in Maine. The Post, in 2005, conceded that Bush's vacations--unlike Obama ...

YES - Barack Obama: The current president wrote about his cocaine and marijuana use as a youth in Hawaii and famously said, “When I was a kid, I inhaled, frequently. That was the point,” when running for president in 2008. YES - George W. Bush: Dubya was known as a cocaine user in his younger days, but he would never respond to questions about his marijuana use. Later, he told his biographer, Douglas Wead (yes, pronounced like “weed”), “I wouldn’t answer the marijuana questions. You know why?

Saturday's going way out on a limb with this book review. Regardless of what you have read and heard about this book, it is extremely well-balanced. The most surprising thing is how he "informs" himself by talking with young officers and soldiers. You might like it! The inside accounts of the Obama administration's internal debate over Afghanistan may be grabbing the headlines, but former Defense Secretary Robert Gates' new memoir has some other eye-openers as well. Yes, Gates levels blistering criticism at Congress, Vice President Joe Biden and former colleagues and describes White House aides working to undercut President Barack Obama's confidence in his own commanders. But in "Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War," the low-key Gates -- who replaced Donald Rumsfeld at the Pentagon late in George W. Bush's administration and was kept on by Obama when he took office in 2009 -- also talks about his own moments of doubt, anger and frustration. Here are a few items from the book that may surprise readers. -- ...
1. "We Ought to Take It Out" In early 2007, as Iraq seemed to be slipping inexorably into chaos and President George W. Bush into inescapable political purgatory, Meir Dagan, the head of the Israeli Mossad, flew to Washington, sat down in a sunlit office of the West Wing of the White House, and spread out on the coffee table before him a series of photographs showing a strange-looking building rising out of the sands in the desert of eastern Syria. Vice President *** Cheney did not have to be told what it was. "They tried to hide it down a wadi, a gulley," he recalls to filmmaker R.J. Cutler. "There's no population around it anyplace... You can't say it's to generate electricity, there's no power line coming out of it. It's just out there obviously for production of plutonium." The Syrians were secretly building a nuclear plant -- with the help, it appeared, of the North Koreans. Though the United States was already embroiled in two difficult, unpopular, and seemingly Endless Wars, though its military w . ...
SENS. WARREN & DURBIN JOIN LOCAL WORKERS & BUSINESS OWNERS IN BOSTON TO CALL FOR MINIMUM WAGE INCREASE BOSTON, MA – At a roundtable discussion in Boston today, United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Senate Majority Whip *** Durbin (D-Ill.) joined local workers and business owners in calling for a minimum wage increase. Boloco founder John Pepper hosted the roundtable discussion at one of the restaurant’s Boston locations, and Massachusetts AFL-CIO President Steven Tolman also attended the event. “Raising the minimum wage is the first step to rebuild and strengthen America’s middle class,” said Senator Warren. “Congress has not given workers a raise since George W. Bush was president, and the federal hourly minimum wage for tipped workers has been frozen in place at $2.13 since George H.W. Bush was in the White House. It's time to raise the minimum wage because full-time work should not mean full-time poverty.” “Imagine being a single parent working 40 hours a week to care fo ...

"Have you ever noticed that President Obama loves the word UNPRECEDENTED? He has often spoken of the 'unprecedented problems' he inherited form President George W. Bush. Then there are the 'unprecedented opportunities' we American now have because HE was elected to the White House. A lot's going on that's 'unprecedented,' all right, but that is by no means a good thing. Take the UNPRECEDENTED 'greatness' of his plans to create jobs and simultaneously save the economy, the earth, and the American dream. Uh-oh. These policies actually entrenched our national debt, killed jobs, and secured a new level of power for the federal government at the expense of families and businesses." -Mike Huckabee
Time to Change. Time to Choose. When the White House and Congress of the United States of America were controlled by Republicans, the nation found itself at war. It was a war not asked for by America, but one we were dragged into by terrorists who wished us dead. Some tried to blame America. Some claimed it was because of the cycle of poverty and violence our enemies suffered. They ignored facts. But George W. Bush kept us safe. His foreign policy was not perfect, but far better than the present blundering of Barack Obama. Unfortunately, while George W. Bush focused on keeping us safe, his party waged war on thrift and small government domestically. Hiding behind war spending, the Republicans in Congress, with the President’s blessing, destroyed any sense of reasonableness to the size and scope of the federal government. They passed Medicare Part D, expanding entitlements. They passed No Child Left Behind, expanding the federal government’s incursion into state run public schools and setting the stage ...
On the eve of that the second Gulf War was declared, I had the honor of hearing Pete Seeger sing with Paul Stookey and Mary Travers at a candlelight peace vigil at the Lincoln Memorial. They suggested an improptu, peaceful walk down to the White House after the vigil so that President George W. Bush could see the masses of people who were peacefully urging our country away from more death and destruction. They led, we followed - and as we walked, the government decided, for the first time in our country's history, to shut down the public gathering space behind the White House, which never even closed during the tumultuous protests of the Vietnam War. I'll never forget the unity that I felt that evening amongst these Peace Warriors - RIP Pete.
Back when people with real credentials were appointed to the Cabinet (via Von Howze): On this day in 2005, President George W. Bush appoints Condoleezza Rice to the post of secretary of state. A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. Rice's credentials included advanced degrees in Political Science and international relations from prestigious schools, followed by a post as Stanford University provost. At Stanford, she honed her reputation as an expert in Soviet affairs, catching the attention of the Reagan administration. In 1986, at Reagan's behest, Dr. Rice served on the Council on Foreign Relations, and then secured an appointment as Special Assistant to the director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1989 to 1991. The first President Bush elevated Dr. Rice to director of Soviet and East European affairs in the National Security Council. She also served as the senior President Bush's Special Assistant for national security affairs. President George W. Bush renewed her advisory role in the White House when h ...

When you draw near to God, The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. --2 Chronicles 16:9 When you draw near to God, there is infallible wisdom to direct you, perfect love to keep you, and eternal power to protect you. God’s will for His people is not held captive to the ups and downs of human existence. One of the lasting images I have from the 2000 Presidential Election night coverage is commentator Tim Russert, who sat in the network control room with his little erasable board and marker, showing the various combinations of state electoral votes that George W. Bush or Al Gore needed to win the White House. The lineup kept changing throughout the night as the votes came in, and that man’s erasable board almost took on a life of its own. We saw how easily one state could turn the entire election around. This may be the way we elect presidents, but it’s not the way God operates His world. He’s not sitting i ...

pxxvi ... the Carlyle Group is a story of dealings inside "Iron Triangle," the place where the world's mightiest military intersects with high-powered politics and big business. It is a company whose history includes ties to CIA cover-ups and secret arms deals, and an astounding trail of corporate cronyism. By making defense buyouts the cornerstone of its business strategy, Carlyle now finds itself the beneficiary of the largest increase in defense spending in history. Indeed the stars seem to have aligned perfectly for Carlyle, in just 15 short years. With the ascension of George W. Bush to the presidency, the White House is now full of ex-Carlyle employees, friends, and business partners. And with the newly fattened defense budget, Carlyle has been able to extract massive profits from its defense holdings, like United Defense, in the wake of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. It may be tough times for America, but as Bette Midler might say, everything's coming up Carlyle. While the company fle ...

What It Takes to Free A Man? On December 19, 2013, President Obama commuted the sentence of eight individuals, including Clarence Aaron. I have been a supporter of President Obama since he was vying for the Presidency in 2007, and I am still his supporter.

At a meeting with youth to promote his landmark healthcare law, Obama said he is not allowed to have Apple's smartphone, the iPhone, for "security reasons," though he still uses Apple's tablet computer, the iPad. Apple was one of several tech companies that may have allowed the National Security Agency (NSA) direct access to servers containing customer data, according to revelations by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The companies deny the allegation. Obama fought to keep his BlackBerry after coming to the White House in 2009, though he said only 10 people have his personal email address. Neither George W. Bush nor Bill Clinton used email during their presidencies. BlackBerry, a Canadian company formerly known as Research In Motion, virtually invented the idea of on-the-go email, but lost its market stranglehold as rivals brought out more consumer-friendly devices, like Apple ...
On this day in the American presidency and Congress , Dec. 8: • 1987, President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev signed a treaty at the White House calling for destruction of intermediate-range nuclear missiles. • 2003, President George W. Bush signed a $400 billion Medicare overhaul bill that included a prescription drug plan for seniors. • 2003, Congress approved legislation to stem the flood of unwanted junk e-mail known as "spam."
Lei esto hoy en Internet, como parte de los articulos sobre la muerte de Mandela. Es un extracto: [...] Mandela and other ANC officials remained on the terror watch list even as President Bush welcomed Mandela, newly released from prison, to the White House in 1990. Because of what was described as a "bureaucratic snafu," their names were kept on the list (of terrorists) until 2008, 14 years after Mandela had been elected president and nine years after he had left power. He was 90 at the time. The terrorist designation finally proved too embarrassing for the U.S. government to ignore. In April 2008, during the last year of the George W. Bush administration, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told a Senate committee that her department had to issue waivers for ANC members to travel to the United States. "This is a country with which we now have excellent relations, South Africa, but it's frankly a rather embarrassing matter that I still have to waive in my own counterpart, the foreign minister of South .. ...
America’s Shameful Treatment of Nelson Mandela The U.S. government brand Mandela a terrorist and the ANC a terrorist organization. Mandela was well into his second decade in prison on Robbins Island, posed no threat to the South African government, and had no direct say in the political or military operations of the ANC. Yet he was still regarded by the Reagan administration as a dangerous subversive. Though Regan had dumped him and the organization on the terrorist watch list in the 1980s and it stood unchallenged during those years. It took a concerted effort by civil rights activists and many congressional Democrats to end the political targeting of Mandela. But it was not a slam dunk. As late as 2007, ANC officials, and that included Mandela, who sought to travel to the U.S. still had to get a State Department waiver or special certification in order to enter the country. Mandela had to get that even for his White House visit with George W. Bush in 2005. A chagrined Secretary of State Condoleezza Ri ...

Julian Zelizer says Bill Clinton is still trying to shape his party, years after the White House, while George W. Bush opts for a much more passive role.
Stayed up late last night and caught George W. Bush and Laura Bush on the Jay Leno Show. I truly admire them.they are so gracious and humble. Their marriage of thirty years is such an inspiration. It has withstood all the years of politics and that in itself is inspiring to me. Can not imagine some of the dark days they weathered in the White House and all the time they have remained loyal to each other. We need more role models like them in the public eye. President Bush also respects and honors our service men and women and will not hesitate to give them the honor they deserve. No matter how one may feel about his legacy as President, I for one respect the goodness in him and respect what he stands for. Just felt good to see him and Mrs. Bush it gave me that warm, cozy, protected feeling again. I miss that.

THANK THESE REPUBLICANS FOR OBAMACARE October 30, 2013 We have Obamacare for one reason and one reason only: For a brief, ghoulish period in recent history, Democrats controlled the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. We don't have Obamacare because the public was clamoring for it. We have it because Republicans lost elections. First, Republicans lost their majorities in the House and the Senate in 2006, thanks to George W. Bush's highly effective "Keep the Base at Home on Election Day" campaign, which consisted of pushing amnesty for illegal aliens. Then in 2008, Republicans had the bright idea to run crazy-eyed crypt-keeper John Mccain for president. McCain supported: amnesty (until he needed our votes), retroactive Social Security benefits for illegal aliens, free speech-crushing campaign-finance laws, crackpot global warmin . ...

White House seeks Republican immigration help By: Reid J. Epstein and Seung Min Kim November 10, 2013 06:16 PM EST President Barack Obama hasn’t given up on immigration reform, but he still needs a way to break through with House Republicans. The White House has reached out to former George W. Bush administration officials, conservative business leaders and selected House members, all in search of a way to hone a message that can move House Leaders without scaring them off. In closed-door meetings, they have urged the White House to find a way to reach out to the GOP that doesn’t center on Obama banging the podium telling Speaker John Boehner to bring a bill to the floor. During the Senate debate, Obama mostly stayed out of the limelight, for fear his involvement would end any hope of a bipartisan success. But his staffers were heavily involved behind the scenes. White House aides recognize the situation with the House is similar, but participants in the meetings say the president’s team simply does ...
Guide to Grammar and Writing : - Capitalization Capitalize this! majuscule The first word of every sentence. The first-person singular pronoun, I. The first, last, and important words in a title. (The concept "important words" usually does not include articles, short prepositions (which means you might want to capitalize "towards" or "between," say), the "to" of an infinitive, and coordinating conjunctions. This is not true in APA Reference lists (where we capitalize only the first word), nor is it necessarily true for titles in other languages. Also, on book jackets, aesthetic considerations will sometimes override the rules.) Proper nouns Specific persons and things: George W. Bush, the White House, General Motors Corporation.

Vanity Fair politics LETTER FROM WASHINGTON November 8, 2013 The Lonely Guy He’s a community organizer who works alone. What was once his greatest strength—he kept his cool and didn’t need feedback—is now a liability. By Todd S. Purdum © T.J. Kirkpatrick/Corbis. When Barack Obama arrived in Washington almost five years ago, the universal assumption was that the young president—who had, after all, won office by exploiting every connective tool of the national social and electoral network—would run his White House in sharp contrast to the bunkered, hunkered-down George W. Bush. Like so much conventional wisdom, that impression has proved dead wrong. In fact, Obama’s resolute solitude—his isolation and alienation from the other players and power centers of Washington, be they rivals or friends—has emerged as the defining trait of his time in office. He may be the biggest presidential paradox since Thomas Jefferson, the slaveholder who wrote the Declaration of Independence: a community orga ...
From: Gary L. Bauer Obama At The Polling “Abyss” A new Gallup poll over the weekend is sending fear through the White House. Obama's approval rating has dropped to 40%, down three more points in the last week. Fifty-three percent of respondents now say they disapprove of his performance. When George W. Bush hit 40%, the media said that politically he was “toast.” The standards are different for Obama, of course, but if he drops into the 30’s the Democrat establishment will be in full out panic mode. What’s Not To Like? Why is he dropping? The simple answer is the ongoing train wreck known as Obamacare. Americans with individual policies continue to get cancellation letters of their current policies and learn that they will pay a lot more for a lot less. Ezekiel Emanuel, an architect of Obamacare and brother of Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, said over the weekend, “The individual market is going away.” He didn’t sound upset! Of course he didn't. That was their goal! The . ...
1/16/08 Congratulations Larry: The only thing that was missing from your show was that this message was not paid for by Mitt Romney. Unfortunately we the people do not need another CEO President of the United State, which if Romney wins a trip to the White House you should definitely get to sleep in the Lincoln Bedroom. Moreover, what is truly sad is that Democrats that completely boycotted the State of Michigan. John Edwards who understandably wants to win South Carolina missed a clear opportunity to collect a needed victory in Michigan without competition. Mrs. Clinton clearly picked up an easy victory without appearance and in my view is the only Democrat that could win if Michigan becomes the next Ohio, or Florida. I only hope that Michigan does understand that Romney is not a compassionate conservative just as George W. Bush was not a compassionate conservative either. Michigan would clearly suffer the faith of Massachusetts under the next four years under Romney as president. Larry how many o ...

Day 1 of the Cuban Missile Crisis, 51 years ago. The closest we have ever ever come to nuclear destruction. As an aside, George W. Bush's Press Secretary, Dana Perino, when asked about it didn't know what it was. told a story about herself that she had previously shared only in private: During a White House briefing, a reporter referred to the Cuban Missile Crisis -- and she didn't know what it was. "I was panicked a bit because I really don't know about . . . the Cuban Missile Crisis," said Perino, "It had to do with Cuba and missiles, I'm pretty sure." Sigh.
WAKE UP AMERICA!!! (This is part of an article I read: Liberals talking about the O b a ma administration.) "NYT reporter: Obama admin “most closed, control-freak administration I’ve ever covered” POSTED AT 1:01 PM ON OCTOBER 5, 2013 BY ED MORRISSEY Remember when the media rushed to talk about transparency in the Barack Obama “Hope and Change” era? Good times, good times. Leonard Downie, who once worked as the executive editor of the Washington Post and wrote a novel about Washington corruption and the Iraq War, finds a bigger and non-fictional problem in the successor to George W.

Downie gives the Post a preview of his report from the Committee to Protect Journalists which outlines the Obama war on reporters and their sources: “A memo went out from the chief of staff a year ago to White House employees and the intelligence agencies that told people to freeze and retain any e-mail, and presumably phone logs, of communications with me,” Sanger said.

I realize most Americans like Bill Clinton and he is a very personable man, but he is also a snake. The financial position we are in now are because of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000, along with the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999. They were largely to blame for the housing and credit bubbles that eventually led to the 2008 financial collapse. Clinton, contrary to what he told Americans was a strong proponent of both bills as was an overwhelming majority of Democrats. But as the financial markets along with the economy collapsed in 2008, the media withheld this inconvenient truth from the public opting instead to blame it all on President George W. Bush and the Republican Party. This assisted Barack Obama's ascendancy to the White House. Now, as the Clintons try to get themselves back into the Oval Office, they most certainly don't want the truth about their involvement in that financial crisis to be made public. As such, you can understand why they wouldn't want the public t ...
We were told in 2008 that, if elected, Barack Obama would make America beloved in the world again. His mere election, we were told, would heal the wounds George W. Bush supposedly inflicted on our international reputation. We are nearly five years into the Obama experiment and not so much. The Daily Caller News Foundation's Brendan Bordelon reports: "A last-minute plea from President Obama couldn’t stop Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff from postponing an October state visit, after revelations that American intelligence spied on her presidential communications allegedly sent her into a rage. Reuters reports that Obama spent 20 minutes on the phone with Rousseff Monday night, apparently trying to salvage the first state visit by the up-and-coming South American nation in nearly two decades. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney tried to play down the cancellation on Tuesday, telling reporters that the decision was a mutual one. 'The president agreed with President Rousseff that it is important to celeb ...

Obama on 4th of July: ‘‘I can’t believe I have to miss a good day of golf for this crap!’’ by Michael Madshack, DP Assistant Editor, www.duhprogressive.com (site is currently suppressed; mainstream not reporting) Thursday, July 4th, 2013 (WASHINGTON) — A “hot mic” has apparently picked up some very unflattering words from President Obama this Fourth of July, and may plunge him deeper into some very hot water. “Hot” or “open mics” frequently catch public figures unknowingly expressing their true feelings, usually with colorful language (prime example: in 2000, then presidential candidate George W. Bush was caught complaining to vice-presidential candidate *** Cheney that a reporter covering their campaign was a “major league *** ). However Obama’s “slip” while exiting the balcony of the White House after his fifth Independence Day address may well exceed the average “hot mic faux pas.” The smaller of Obama's two microphones, which was clipped inches below Obama ...
On the eve of Fourth of July weekend, looking back on two-hundred and thirty years of American history, it's easy to see that, as a nation, we've made a mistake or two along the way: Slavery, the administration of James Buchanan, prohibition, Barry Manilow - all readily come to mind. But nowhere - and I mean, NOWHERE - did we err as mightily as we did in November of 2000 - Election Day, to be precise - when we foolishly sent a contemptible, half-witted inside trader by the name of George W. Bush to the Oval Office - to the White House! Most people learn from their mistakes, right? Not us! No sir! Already the laughingstock of the planet, the world looked on with what can only be described as horrified amusement, wondering if we would repeat our little electoral aberration. On Election Day, 2004, we cheerfully obliged.

Venezuela 2002 Main article: 2002 Venezuelan coup d'état attempt In 2002, Washington is claimed to have approved and supported a coup against the Venezuelan government. Senior officials, including Special Envoy to Latin America Otto Reich and convicted Iran-contra figure and George W. Bush "democracy 'czar'" Elliott Abrams, were allegedly part of the plot.[131] Top coup plotters, including Pedro Carmona, the man installed during the coup as the new president, began visits to the White House months before the coup and continued until weeks before the putsch. The plotters were received at the White House by the man President George W. Bush tasked to be his key policy-maker for Latin America, Special Envoy Otto Reich.[131] It has been claimed by Venezuelan news sources that Reich was the U.S. mastermind of the coup.[132] Former U.S. Navy intelligence officer Wayne Madsen told the British newspaper The Guardian that American military attachés had been in touch with members of the Venezuelan military to expl ...
A man above the crowd. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT READ A Class Act whose predecessor and successor will never match. George W. outclasses Barack and Bill, without even trying... Joseph Curl / April 25, 2013 DALLAS - Shortly after Barack Obama was elected in 2008, a fellow reporter who'd covered President George W. Bush all eight years told me she'd had enough of the travel and stress and strain of the White House beat, that she was moving on. We reminisced about all the places we'd been, all the crazy days and wild nights, all the history we'd seen - first hand. Just before we said our goodbyes, I asked her if she'd miss covering President Obama. "Not at all. He's an inch deep. Bush is a bottomless chasm, a deep, mysterious, emotional, profound man. Obama is all surface - shallow, obvious, robotic, and, frankly, not nearly as smart as he thinks. Bush was the one." Her words, so succinct, have stuck with me ever since. By the way, she's a hardcore Democrat. But she was right. And that contrast was apparent to al ...
WASHINGTON/SAN FRANCISCO, June 21 (Reuters) - Twelve of the 14 judges who have served this year on the most secret court in America are Republicans and half are former prosecutors. One is a former director of the Illinois State Police. Another helped direct the White House war on drugs. One served as a prosecutor in the Whitewater case involving the Clintons' real estate investments. Another forced President Bill Clinton to testify during the same scandal. But judges of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, drawn from regular trial courts across the country, also have issued orders in public cases that belie their conservative, law-enforcement roots, sometimes ruling against the government in terrorism-related cases. Years after the drug official - Reggie Walton - left George W. Bush's White House, he sentenced Scooter Libby, Vice President D*** Cheney's chief of staff, to 30 months in prison for perjury. And years after Bush appointed the Whitewater prosecutor - John Bates - to the federal bench, ...
George W. Bush isn't the first Republican president to face a full-blown immigration crisis on the US-Mexican border. Fifty-three years ago, when newly elected Dwight Eisenhower moved into the White House, America's southern frontier was as porous as a spaghetti sieve. As many as 3 million illegal migrants had walked and waded northward over a period of several years for jobs in California, Arizona, Texas, and points beyond. President Eisenhower cut off this illegal traffic. He did it quickly and decisively with only 1,075 United States Border Patrol agents – less than one-tenth of today's force. The operation is still highly praised among veterans of the Border Patrol. Although there is little to no record of this operation in Ike's official papers, one piece of historic evidence indicates how he felt. In 1951, Ike wrote a letter to Sen. William Fulbright (D) of Arkansas. The senator had just proposed that a special commission be created by Congress to examine unethical conduct by government officials ...
Being president of the U.S., the most powerful man in the world, is often most about perception. The man (or, one day, woman) in the job takes actions large and small every day, but it is the perception of the man that seeps into the everyday lives of working Americans. That’s why presidential candidates always hit Philadelphia for a cheesesteak during campaigns (Democrats to Pat’s, Republicans to Geno’s). Sure, they’re running billion-dollar operations trying to win the White House, but one picture of them wolfing down a Cheez Whiz-covered glob of meat on a Philly street hits home with millions of voters: “Hey, that guy’s just like me! He loves him a Pat’s [or Geno’s] cheesesteak, too!” (Unless you’re John F. Kerry and order Swiss cheese — then everyone hates you.) Sometimes, that perception cuts to the core. Like when President George W. Bush stopped playing golf in 2003, at the height of the Iraq War. “I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal,” he said yea ...
Jesuits among us. Pat Buchannan.Governor Jerry Brown.Rick Santorum.Shawn Hannity. Shortly after Pope Benedict XVI's election in 2005, President Bush met with a small circle of advisers in the Oval Office. As some mentioned their own religious backgrounds, the president remarked that he had read one of the new pontiff's books about faith and culture in Western Europe. Save for one other soul, Bush was the only non-Catholic in the room. But his interest in the pope's writings was no surprise to those around him. As the White House prepares to welcome Benedict on Tuesday, many in Bush's inner circle expect the pontiff to find a kindred spirit in the president. Because if Bill Clinton can be called America's first black president, some say, then George W. Bush could well be the nation's first Catholic president. This isn't as strange a notion as it sounds. Yes, there was John F. Kennedy. But where Kennedy sought to divorce his religion from his office, Bush has welcomed Roman Catholic doctrine and teachings . ...

Bush's closest Texas pals as two of its major partners. I have earned the attention of an Orwellian Ministry of Truth-like "counter-propaganda" office at the U.S. Department of State, which maintains a web site that criticizes my articles. It is against U.S. law for the International Public Diplomacy unit to directly respond to my counter-arguments, they can only legally respond to foreign queries and not from U.S. citizen journalists who they cavalierly attack.

Why is Obama Hiding 6,000-Page Report on Bush-Era Torture and Why is Torture Still Allowed? President Barack Obama is currently blocking the release—or allowing the CIA to block the release—of a comprehensive Senate report on the use of to...rture by the George W. Bush administration CIA that is said to conclude that torture was not an effective or reliable method of interrogation and that the agency repeatedly misled the White House, the Justice Department, and Congress about its interrogation efforts. Initiated by Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-West Virginia) and continued by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) when she succeeded him in 2009, the Senate torture probe entailed about six years of work and the review of 6 million pages of documents. In December 2012, the committee voted out the report on a mostly party line vote. Since that time, the report has been stuck in limbo at the CIA, with Director John Brennan refusing to state when his review will be complete, an ...

Scandal the TV Show is REAL. June 1, 2006 -- Rocky shoals for Bush marriage? Informed sources Inside the Beltway report that First Lady Laura Bush has established temporary residence in the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC as a result of a tiff with President Bush over an extramarital relationship involving her husband. Mr. Bush's tryst is said to involve Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. It is not known how long Mrs. Bush plans to remain at the Mayflower, however, her security detail has been present at the hotel during hours when the First Lady would normally be residing in the White House. While she was National Security Adviser, Rice, who has never been married, referred to George W. Bush as "my husband" before she corrected herself and said, "President. Bush" Rice was speaking at a dinner hosted by New York Times bureau chief Philip Taubman when she made her "husband" remarks. So if this must is TRU then what else is
Truth and Beauty Music, writing, film, photography, public policy, and California love Monday, May 27, 2013 Memorial Day in the United States of Amnesia “I think they had a plan from day one; they wanted to do something about Iraq. While the World Trade Center was still smoldering, while they were still digging bodies out, people in the White House were thinking: ‘Ah! This gives us the opportunity we have been looking for to go after Iraq.’” -Richard Clarke, George W. Bush's counterterrorism adviser Each Memorial Day, Americans fly flags and express gratitude for veterans who have sacrificed on our behalf. But while the day is filled with rituals and ceremonies honoring vets (as it should be), discussions about what role our military should play abroad or how veterans are treated when they return home are cordoned off by the rules of polite society. Yet is there a day more appropriate to discuss the fate of our troops than Memorial Day? If not today, when the spotlight is on our often-invisible vo ...
4 July 2001: Add mine disaster witness statements. 4 July 2001 Source: British paper faces suit over Palast investigation Friday, June 29, 2001 Gregory Palast In retaliation for the investigative story about the finances of the George W. Bush campaign, Barrick Gold Mining of Canada has sued my paper, the Observer of London, for libel. The company, which hired the elder Bush after his leaving the White House, is charging the newspaper with libel for quoting an Amnesty International report, which alleged that 50 miners might have been buried alive in Tanzania by a company now owned by Barrick. The company has also demanded the Observer and its parent, Guardian Newspapers, force me to remove the article from my US website, a frightening extension of Britain’s punitive libel laws into the World Wide Web. The company has also issued legal threats against Tanzanian human rights lawyer Tundu Lissu, one of the Observer’s independent sources and an investigator of the mine-site allegations. The attack by Barri ...
consortiumnews.com Bush Spins Scandalous Neglect of Vets By Jason Leopold  January 6, 2009 It’s not uncommon for Presidents to embellish their accomplishments upon leaving office, but George W. Bush, who will exit the White House leaving the country in the worst shape since Herbert Hoover, has gone a step further, moving past exaggeration into outright lying. Last month, trying to change the emerging historical consensus about a failed presidency, the White House published two lengthy reports, “Highlights of Accomplishments and Results of the Administration of George W. Bush,” and “100 Things Americans May Not Know About the Bush Administration Record.” One of the surprising claims that stood out among the combined 90 pages of so-called accomplishments was the White House’s glowing assessment of Bush’s record on veterans’ issues. Bush claims he “provided unprecedented resources for veterans” over the past eight years and provided “the highest level of support for veterans in Americ ...

Statement of Candidacy As a lifelong resident of the Old Dominion, I was born in Fairfax Hospital and raised in Stafford, at a time when it was still largely a county defined by "turning off the paved road,” rather than the burgeoning DC outer suburb it has become. I first took a real interest in politics during the 1980 elections, and by the time I started high school in 1986, I was a confirmed conservative Republican. As the years flew by, and as the Gulf War and the George H.W. Bush presidency exposed the opportunistic and increasingly totalitarian nature of the Republican Party establishment, I moved more and more into the pro-liberty corner, until I became disgusted and disillusioned by the nomination of Bob Dole for President in 1996. In 2001, soon after George W. Bush entered the White House, I became involved in the Republican Liberty Caucus, with Chairman Chuck Muth at the helm. I drifted away after several years, disillusioned with the direction the organization, and our nation,appeared to be ...
WHO BENEFITS? The lawyer who first drew up White House policy on lethal drone strikes has accused the Obama administration of overusing them because of its reluctance to capture prisoners that would otherwise have to be sent to Guantánamo Bay. John Bellinger, who was responsible for drafting the legal framework for targeted drone killings while working for George W. Bush after 9/11, said he believed their use had increased since because President Obama was unwilling to deal with the consequences of jailing suspected al-Qaeda members. "This government has decided that instead of detaining members of al-Qaeda [at Guantánamo] they are going to kill them," he told a conference at the Bipartisan Policy Center. Obama this week pledged to renew efforts to shut down the jail but has previously struggled to overcome congressional opposition, in part due to U.S. disagreements over how to handle suspected terrorists and insurgents captured abroad. An estimated 4,700 people have now been killed by some 300 U.S. dro ...
Before formulating a political opinion, pause to ask yourself, "If the last election for this office had turned out differently, and this policy position were being advanced by the other candidate instead of this one, would my view of this proposal be different?" On more than one occasion, Democrats and Republicans reacted completely differently to similar positions taken by Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, and I wonder how most conservatives and liberals would have reacted had, say, Senator John Kerry filibustered against a nominee of President Mitt Romney after the GOP-controlled White House advocated the use of drones against American citizens on American soil.
During his first month in office, President George W. Bush appointed Vice President *** Cheney to head a task force charged with developing the country's energy policy. The group, which conducted its meetings in secret, relied on the recommendations of Big Oil behemoths Exxon Mobil, Conoco, Shell Oil, BP America and Chevron. It would be the first of many moves to come during the Bush administration that would position oil and gas companies well ahead of other energy interests with billions of dollars in subsidies and tax cuts—payback for an industry with strong ties to the administration and plenty of money to contribute to congressional and presidential campaigns. During the time that Bush and Cheney, both of whom are former oil executives, have been in the White House, the oil and gas industry has spent $393.2 million on lobbying the federal government. This places the industry among the top nine in lobbying expenditures. The industry has also contributed a substantial $82.1 million to federal candid ...
In his first news conference since his heart was replaced one week ago, Former Vice President *** Cheney announced Saturday that he regretted his “extensive” role in the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 — and the subsequent coverup. Former Vice President *** Cheney said that “knowing the truth would be good for the country.” Photo: AP. “It was a terrible, terrible thing to do,” said Cheney, speaking in the lobby of Bethesda Cardiac Unit in Maryland, the nation’s most prestigious heart center. Reporters, his transplant team and members of his family crowded around Cheney, who served for eight years under President George W. Bush. “Looking back, I can’t believe Karl and I actually did that,” he added, referring to Former White House staff member and Republican strategist Karl Rove. “There are a lot of ways to start wars. I don’t know why we had to kill so many Jewish people,” he explained. As reporters shouted their questions, Cheney raised his hand and said, “I am sorry, this is ve . ...
The Dangers of False Equivalence By Rudolf Ogoo Okonkwo Posted: March 5, 2013 - 13:39 Columnist: Correct Me If I Am Right By Rudolf Okonkwo I was simply following the panache of the news when I said that President Olusegun Obasanjo met his American counterpart, George W. Bush, at the White House. Immediately, raw anger stormed across his face as if Kanji dam just busted at the center of his skull. The muscles of his cheek tightened like a bow tie around a boxer’s neck. Even the hot moist air coming out of his mouth curled up with a vicious gait. “Counterpart, my behind,” the former MIT Professor said. It was over ten years ago but I still remember it as if it was yesterday. We were watching T.V news at a Boston apartment of another Nigerian. The professor rolled out a series of rants on why nobody should ever make such comparison. He centered his argument on what real democracy and accountability for those charged with administering the state ought to be. I listened to him carefully because he was n ...
Michelle Obama is also far from the only inhabitant of the White House to drop in for a surprise Oscar visit. The tradition began with Franklin Roosevelt, who kicked off the 1941 Oscars ceremony via radio. More recently, beloved Republicans Ronald Reagan and even George W. Bush appeared in taped appearances, in 1981 and 2002, respectively. The vitriol against the First Lady comes at a time when she’s more beloved than ever before. The “Evolution of Mom Dancing” video clip from the Late Show with Jimmy Fallon has gone viral since it aired on Friday night, picking up more than 4 million views. Her favorability ratings in recent polls are sky high, with four times as many respondents giving her the thumbs up than the thumbs down. Democratic strategist Karen Finney thinks the conservative media is suffering from jealousy. “She has got some moves, and look how good she looked in that dress,” she said on PoliticsNation Monday. “Every First Lady and president, there have been things that they’ve do ...
'Reagan,' Vice President *** Cheney famously declared in 2002, 'proved deficits don't matter.' Unless, that is, a Democrat is in the White House. After all, while Ronald Reagan tripled the national debt and George W. Bush doubled it again,

Secret Memo by Donald Rumsfeld Proves Iraq War Started On False Pretenses Everyone Knew Iraq Had No WMD … and Was Not Behind Anthrax Attacks or 9/11 Everyone knew that Iraq didn’t have weapons of mass destruction. Indeed, Secretary of State Colin Powell’s chief of staff – Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson – just said that Powell knew that there were no WMDs: I wonder what will happen when we put 500,000 troops into Iraq and comb the country from one end to the other and find nothing (starting at 6:43 into video). But war is sold just like soda or toothpaste … and so a false justification also needs to be concocted. George W. Bush, John Mccain, Sarah Palin, a high-level National Security Council officer, Alan Greenspan and others all say that the Iraq War was reallyabout oil. It has been extensively documented that the White House decided to invade Iraq before 9/11: Former CIA director George Tenet said that the White House wanted to invade Iraq long before 9/11, and inserted “crap” in its justif ...
Obama advances globalist '2-ocean' plan Grandiose expansion of 'North American Union' pushed by Bush New YorkPresident Obama has revived George W. Bush's Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America effort with a grandiose trade plan that transcends the continent to encompass both the Atlantic and Pacific spheres. In his State of the Union address Feb. 12, Obama announced a two-ocean, globalist free-trade agenda. Despite having demonized Republican challenger Mitt Romney as a "jobs outsourcer," Obama in his SOTU address did not hesitate to sell the new globalist alliances to Congress and the American People as "partnerships" that would expand U.S. exports. It's the same premise all previous administrations have used to sell free-trade agreements such as NAFTA. Follow this link to help fight Obama's "Partnership" and power grab. For the first time, a decision by the U.S. Trade Representative within the White House to expand negotiations to create a Free Trade zone with Pacific Rim countries wa ...

Why there Were no CIA Torture Black Sites in Latin America (Grandin) Posted: 18 Feb 2013 10:33 PM PST Greg Grandin writes at Tomdispatch.com: The map tells the story. To illustrate a damning new report, “Globalizing Torture: CIA Secret Detentions and Extraordinary Rendition,” recently published by the Open Society Institute, the Washington Post put together an equally damning graphic: it’s soaked in red, as if with blood, showing that in the years after 9/11, the CIA turned just about the whole world into a gulag archipelago. Back in the early twentieth century, a similar red-hued map was used to indicate the global reach of the British Empire, on which, it was said, the sun never set. It seems that, between 9/11 and the day George W. Bush left the White House, CIA-brokered torture never saw a sunset either. All told, of the 190-odd countries on this planet, a staggering 54 participated in various ways in this American torture system, hosting CIA “black site” prisons, allowing their airspace a . ...

“How did [the Holocaust] happen? Because God allowed it to happen… because God said, ‘My top priority for the Jewish people is to get them to come back to the land of Israel.’” ~ Rev.

Is America Ensnared in an Endless War? By Patrick J. Buchanan Friday - February 8, 2013 "When the president does it, that means that it is not illegal." So said Richard Nixon in his interviews with David Frost. Nixon was talking about wiretaps and surreptitious entries to protect lives and safeguard national security in a violent and anarchic war decade. The Nixon haters pronounced themselves morally sickened. Fast forward to our new century. For, since 9/11, we have heard rather more extravagant claims by American presidents. Under George W. Bush, it was presidential authority to waterboard, torture, rendition and hold enemy aliens in indefinite detention at Guantanamo. Under Barack Obama, we don't have a Nixon "enemies list" of folks who are not to be invited to White House dinners. Rather, we have a "kill list" -- a menu from which our constitutional law professor president selects individuals to be executed abroad. Not only in Afghanistan, but Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen and who knows where else. And not ...
-The Real Governor Christi Issue- The issue of whether Bill Clinton's White House Physician, Connie Mariano, was right or wrong for simply high-lighting Christi's severe overweight problem, isn't the real question, but rather is it simply a matter of fact. The Governor has done an exemplary job in taking care of the needs of New Jersey. I do not generally like Republicans because the Republican Party has distanced itself from the evolving needs of the American People. Christi, should be a Democrat, because he does not fit the current 'republican mold'. I like Mr. Christi, and I do not want him to die. We have just gotten rid of the worst president that has ever sat in the White House, in George W. Bush. His legitimacy is non-existent, due to in part to his brother's tampering with the Florida ballots, during the election, and due in part to the Supreme Court's interference with the re-count being conducted, after the election, among other things. Americans are entitled to know who will be controlling th . ...
Ben Stein. "In a few days, we will mark that 100th birthday of Richard Nixon, the best friend in the White House that Jews have ever had. Even now, if you mention Nixon to Israelis, they tear up with gratitude about how Mr. Nixon saved them in 1973. American Jews have a very different attitude. I suspect that Mr. Obama will get away with his contempt for Israel, and that the same Jews who have always put the party line ahead of Israel will still support him. If Iran kills two million Jews in an afternoon (God forbid!) they will find a way to blame George W. Bush. Poor Israel, poor beleaguered Israel, abandoned by so many people who call themselves Jewish, so alone, so terribly alone."
MSNBC and Steve Kroft from CBS 60 Minutes fame have just reported - It has been determined that the power outage during the Super Bowl today, was a result of slow response to Hurricane Katrina by President George W. Bush. The White House is in total agreement says Press Secretary Jay Carney. Just thought you would all like to know the real reason behind the problem.
"The team at the White House was steady and a source of inspiration. Laura (1st Lady) was a rock of stability and love. My brother Marvin and sister Doro, both of whom lived in the Washington area, stopped by frequently for meals. Mother and Dad offered constant support, my family gave me comfort and helped me clear my mind." President George W. Bush in his autobiography titled "Decision Points". This was part of the source of his strenght in the wake of 9/11 terrorist attack. This is what I called family support in time of crisis.

The concept of a forum for the world's major industrialized democracies emerged following the 1973 oil crisis. In 1974, a series of meetings in the library of the White House in Washington, D.C. was known as the "Library Group".[5] This was an informal gathering of senior financial officials from the United States, the United Kingdom, West Germany, Japan and France.[6] In 1975, French President Valéry Giscard d'Estaing invited the heads of government from West Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States to a summit in Château de Rambouillet. The six leaders agreed to an annual meeting organized under a rotating presidency, forming the Group of ...
I have tried to avoid partisanship today, though I voted for Obama and got to see everything on the National Mall today and am very excited a Democrat will be in the White House, I am genuinely wondering why George W. Bush was not present today. Aren't all ex-presidents present, if health and travel permits at inaugurations regardless of party?

"With President Obama now contemplating up to nineteen executive orders to combat gun violence, conservatives have started to flip out in characteristic form. Kentucky senator Rand Paul has accused Obama of acting "like a king or a monarch." South Carolina congressman Jeff Duncan declared last week, "We live in a republic, not a dictatorship." Mike Huckabee proclaimed that the White House has "nothing but contempt for the Constitution" and seeks to "trump ... the checks and balances of power in which no branch could act unilaterally." Texas congressman Steve Stockman has already threatened impeachment." "We've crunched the numbers, and as you can see in our handy graph, above, Obama has issued fewer executive orders per day in office than conservative heroes like George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, and Calvin Coolidge. In fact, you have to go all the way back to Grover Cleveland in the nineteenth century to find a president who has issued executive orders at a lower rate than Obama."
Interesting article re second term presidents ~ Stockton Record (011613) SECOND PRESIDENTIAL TERMS LOADED WITH SETBACKS WASHINGTON (AP) — Second presidential terms are never easy — even for George Washington. More often, they're fraught with peril, frequently marred by scandal, failure, hubris, and burnout, and souring relations with Congress. President Barack Obama acknowledges the dangers of overreach but vows to steer cautiously. The odds are against him. He's the 20th U.S. president to serve all or parts of two terms. Most of the others have encountered setbacks and frustrations. He's also the third in a row to win a second four-year term. Both predecessors stumbled. President Bill Clinton was impeached by the House over lying about an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, although the Senate declined to remove him from office. President George W. Bush failed to get a big Social Security overhaul through Congress and was slammed for his handling of Hurricane Katrina and growing voter anx ...
"President Barack Obama on Thursday signed into a law a measure giving him, George W. Bush and future former presidents and their spouses lifetime Secret Service protection, the White House announced. The legislation, crafted by Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, rolls back a mid-1990s law that imposed a 10-year limit on Secret Service protection for former presidents. Bush would have been the first former commander in chief affected." So.I'm thinkin' this is just another way to waste money...
I thought I'd share the top five books I read in 2012 with you. I'd love to hear your favourite reads this year: THE FAULT IN OUR STARS by John Green, is a really sweet, quirky, moving book about teenager, Hazel, who has terminal cancer. But when a gorgeous guy named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. It's one of the most charming books I've read. THE DINNER by Herman Koch is a book that starts off lightly but gets darker with each page. It *** you in from the first page but you soon realise that nothing is at it seems and the book shocks you and surprises you. AMERICAN CAESARS by Nigel Hamilton looks at the lives and careers of the twelve leaders of America since World War II, from Franklin D. Roosevelt to George W. Bush. Hamilton examines the presidents’ unique characters, their paths to the White House and their effectiveness as global leaders. It's a fascinating insight into some of the crazy behind the scenes action i . ...
