    Barbara Pierce Bush, the daughter of former President George W. Bush, will headline a Planned Parenthood fundraiser next week in Texas, according to a report from the Texas Tribune. Bush is expected to be the keynote speaker at the Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas's annual Fort Worth fundraising luncheon. President Bush pushed for anti-abortion policies during his time in the White House, but his wife Laura Bush has supported legal abortion in the past. The announcement comes amid the continuing debate over federal funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides a variety of reproductive health services to women, including abortions. Barbara...

    Republican President Donald Trumps first month in office is the sort of beginning that any other Republican president may have had, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday. As I look at what we might have expected from a President Mitt Romney or a President Marco Rubio, or a President Jeb Bush at the beginning of their tenures in office, I cant see much difference between what President Trump is doing and what they would have done, McConnell, R-Ky. told a Capitol news conference.

    Union leader says some stations continue to follow Obama 'catch and release' directives Some border patrol stations have been slow to carry out President Donald Trumps immigration enforcement executive order and instead have continued former President Barack Obamas catch-and-release policies, according to a union official. Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told LifeZette that he raised concerns Thursday with U.S. Border Patrol Chief Ronald Vitiello. He said he is confident that issue soon will be corrected. But Judd said as recently as Thursday, some border patrol stations were still releasing border-jumpers, often without even issuing notices to...

It puts him ahead of only Gerald Ford (47.2 percent), Jimmy Carter (45.5 percent) and Harry Truman (45.4 percent).

    President-elect Trump is taking a far more hands-on approach to working with Congress than his senator-turned-president predecessor. President Obama spent four years in the upper chamber, working closely with many colleagues on both sides of the aisle, but when voters sent him to the White House, he notoriously gave Capitol Hill the cold shoulder. Former congressional colleagues, even some of his biggest supporters, often described him as distant and aloof, a no-drama leadership style that eschewed President George W. Bush's chummy nicknaming of lawmakers who he cultivated with regular White House lunch and dinner invitations.

    As Donald Trump begins to staff his administration, his appointees should understand how deeply the ideologically-driven LGBTs have burrowed into permanent jobs in the permanent bureaucracy and how dangerous they are.The new political appointees should also understand how this group and their allies have driven those who may disagree with their agenda either underground or from the federal bureaucracy altogether, and some even to jail.And they should understand that this group is entrenched and determined not to give an inch in the territory they have gained under the incredibly radical Obama administration.The LGBT cadres had already made great strides...

    We all remember the Jeb! plant that made news during the election for her questions to Trump during the No labels forum in New Hampshire. At the forum, Batchelder asked Trump, 'I want to get paid the same as a man, and I think you understand that. So if you become president, will a woman make the same as a man? And do I get to choose what I do with my body?' Then Trump replied: 'You're going to make the same if you do as good a job and I happen to be pro-life. Okay? I'm pro-life.' Trump...

    In January 2014 President Obama referred to ISIS, one of the most vicious terror armies to ever exist, of being a "JV team." The analogy we use around here sometimes,and I think is accurate, is if a JV team puts on Lakers uniforms, that doesnt make them Kobe Bryant, Obama told the New Yorker at the time. After that comment the group marched from Syria to Iraq, taking large swaths of territory, pillaging and raping along the way and slaughtering thousands.Now with just a month left in his presidency, President Obama is saying he was surprised by the capability of...

    Khalid Sheik Mohammed: George W. Bush's Shock and Awe Response to 9/11 Prevented Other Attacks Far from trying to draw us in, KSM said that al-Qaeda expected the United States to respond to 9/11 as we had the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut when, KSM told Mitchell, the United States turned tail and ran. Then he looked at me and said, How was I supposed to know that cowboy George Bush would announce he wanted us dead or alive and then invade Afghanistan to hunt us down? Mitchell writes. KSM explained that if the United States...

    The Tampa Bay Times' The Buzz ^ | December 1, 2016 | Alex Leary, Washington bureau chief
    The last time Jeb Bush held an education summit in Washington, as he does today, scores of reporters and a big crowd showed up. The headline: Bush seeks balance on Common Core under 2016 glare. Two years ago, speculation raged over whether Bush would run for president. Finally, in June 2015, he jumped in with a big splash of money. The rest is well-known. Today, Bush continued his re-emergence in a space he feels most comfortable in: policy wonk. He kicked off his Foundation For Excellence in Education summit with an 8:45 a.m. speech. "This is a time for big...
