  • Despite 7 women's statements, Bush unlikely to be prosecuted

    Allegations that former President George H.W. Bush inappropriately touched seven women involve potential crimes punishable by fines or jail time, if they had been prosecuted. All but one of the cases is ineligible under state laws that limit when a prosecution can begin after an alleged crime, and several lawyers interviewed said that it would be difficult to win a conviction against Bush, who has vascular parkinsonism, a rare syndrome that mimics Parkinson’s disease. “You’re still going to be facing prosecuting a 93-year-old man in a wheelchair that’s a former president,” said Toby Shook, a lawyer who previously served as...

    Texas woman Roslyn Corrigan claims that former President George H.W. Bush groped her when she was just 16 years old. According to Corrigan, the groping occurred in November of 2003 at an event in The Woodlands, Texas. This is the sixth woman to publicly accuse the 41st president of grabbing her butt without consent. Speaking to Time magazine, Corrigan, who is now in her early 30s, said, “My initial action was absolute horror. I was really, really confused. The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything,” she...

    A federal judge in Seattle, Washington, ruled that illegal aliens receiving amnesty under President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) cannot have their status revoked without due process. Judge Ricardo S. Martinez, appointed by President George W. Bush, said illegal aliens have due process rights and that DACA cannot be canceled justification, The Washington Times reported. “While the Court recognizes and acknowledges that DACA does not confer lawful status upon an individual, the Court also finds that the representations made to applicants for DACA cannot and do not suggest that no process is due to them, particularly in Plaintiff’s...

Bannon told the American families of illegal alien crime victims.During a speech at the Remembrance Project conference, an organization that represents the illegal alien crime victims’ families, Bannon blasted the Bush dynasty, calling out President George W.

    Former President George W. Bush went off on his former vice president and defense secretary, stating bluntly that “they did not make one f****** decision.” Bush made the inflammatory remark about his former colleagues in Mark K. Updegrove’s book The Last Republicans: Inside the Extraordinary Relationship Between George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, which is scheduled to be released November 14. The 43rd president pushed back against critics who claim he did not make major decisions during his presidency, and that former Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld made most of the important decisions in...

    The White House on Saturday disparaged the legacies of the only two living Republican presidents to precede Donald Trump, after reports that both men castigated Trump in interviews last year and refused to vote for him. Former president George H.W. Bush mocked then-candidate Trump as a “blowhard” and voted for a Democratic president, while the younger Bush worried aloud that Trump would destroy the idea of a Republican president in all but name, according to “The Last Republicans,” which is scheduled to go on sale later this month. The White House responded after quotes from the book were published on...

    (CNN)The White House has struck back at both Bush presidents Saturday after the two made stinging comments about President Donald Trump in a new book about the father and son. "If one presidential candidate can disassemble a political party, it speaks volumes about how strong a legacy its past two presidents really had," a White House official told CNN. "And that begins with the Iraq war, one of the greatest foreign policy mistakes in American history." "President Trump remains focused on keeping his promises to the American people by bringing back jobs, promoting an 'America First' foreign policy and standing...
  • Both Bush Presidents Lash Out At Trump, GHW Confirms He Voted For Hillary

    The fading Republican establishment remains unable to reconcile its ongoing collapse, and continues to scapegoat Donald Trump for all the GOP’s troubles instead of looking in the mirror. Two weeks after an outraged George W. Bush lashed out at Trump, accusing him of emboldening “bigotry and white supremacy“, on Saturday we learn just how deep the animosity toward Trump runs within the extended Bush household. In a new book to be released this month from historian Mark Updegrove, titled “The Last Republicans“, and previewed on Saturday by the NYT and CNN, former President George H.W. Bush said he considers Trump...

    Think about it. Had Michael Dukakis beat George H.W. Bush in 1988 they would not been a Bush/Clinton/Bush/Obama. Democrats would have went with Sharpton or Jackson or Gephardt in 1996 or something.

    Prominent Republicans around the country, including several who advise Gov. George W. Bush, say they are worried that his candidacy has floundered in recent weeks, allowing Vice President Al Gore to build on his velocity from the Democratic convention in a way that they never expected. While none of these Republicans expressed panic and all said that Mr. Bush could reverse the trend, they acknowledged puzzlement, frustration and even some distress about the strides that Mr. Gore has made, a degree of progress that they said went beyond an inevitable tightening in polls. ''There's no doubt about it: There's real...

    They were among the most powerful and, in many cases, most popular political figures in their states, proven Republican vote-getters who coalesced remarkably early around one of their own for the presidency: George W. Bush. And so, from Tom Ridge in Pennsylvania to John Engler in Michigan to his own brother Jeb, in Florida, Mr. Bush could count on the company of an important Republican governor when he campaigned in the biggest battleground states. These governors and others like Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin helped define Mr. Bush's very candidacy, vouching for his character, policies and record on the network talk...

    Former first lady Laura Bush applauded Melania Trump on Wednesday for her work in the role since President Trump's inauguration. "I just think she's doing a lovely job," Bush told CNN. "She's a beautiful woman. She's a wonderful representative for the United States." Bush, former President George W. Bush's wife, said she's talked to Trump and visited the White House for tea, during which she got to catch up in the Diplomatic Reception Room with some of the permanent employees who helped her during her husband's two terms. Bush added she wished the current first couple "the very, very best."...

    Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said Thursday his presidential campaign wasn't involved in research behind the infamous dirty dossier – a day after President Donald Trump said the campaign's identity will 'probably' be revealed. Rubio got asked about the dossier amid a new round of intrigue over who paid for the research, after the Washington Post reported that Democratic lawyer Marc Elias hired a political intelligence firm, Fusion GPS, who in turn hired ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who compiled it. It has long been reported that a Republican anti-Trump donor initially paid for the research that begat the dossier. But...

    Here’s something that pretty much sums up where the United States of America is right now, more than nine months into Donald Trump’s experiment with blowing up the American Experiment — with principled discourse, a free press, and the quaint notion that citizens should be told the truth all giving up more yards than the Cleveland Browns’ defense on its worst Sunday. On the night of Nov. 8, thousands of the most rabid haters of Trump and his minions plan to gather under the stars in New York and possibly Boston and other U.S. cities to mark the one-year anniversary...
