  • Bannon on 60 Minutes: I Hold Bush Admin ‘Geniuses’ in ‘Complete Contempt’

    Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon blasted the “geniuses” in former President George W. Bush’s administration for selling out American workers and getting the country stuck in the Middle East in a 60 Minutes interview with CBS anchor Charlie Rose. Bannon took offense at establishment Republicans associated with the Bush administration who went out of their way to question President Donald Trump’s competence during the 2016 campaign even though nearly all of their “genius” ideas—like Paul Wolfowitz’s brand of nation-building and neoconservatism—turned out to be disastrous. “I hold these people in contempt, total and complete contempt,” Bannon told Rose,...

    Former president George H.W. Bush and his son George W. Bush condemned hatred and bigotry on Wednesday — a day after President Trump incendiary comments further inflamed racial tensions in the US. “America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms,” the ex-presidents said in a statement issued from their vacation home in Kennebunkport, Maine. “America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms,” the ex-presidents said in a statement issued from their vacation home in Kennebunkport, Maine. “As we pray for Charlottesville, we are reminded of the fundamental truths recorded by that city’s...

    George W Bush and Bill Clinton both took apparent jabs at Donald Trump at a forum on Thursday night as they named the one characteristic a president needed above all others. The two former presidents were speaking at a graduation ceremony for the Presidential Leadership Scholars program at the George W Bush Presidential Center in Dallas. Bush replied ‘humility’ in answer to the question about presidential qualities, and added – ‘I think it's really important to know what you don't know and listen to people who do know what you don't know.’ Clinton said anyone holding the highest office in...
  • For the Record: Democrats Called For Last 4 GOP Presidents To be Impeached

    While the lying mainstream makes it seem that Democrats are onto something with impeachment talk of President Trump, they fail to show that Democrats have called for the impeachment of GOP presidents in ‘81, ’83, ’84, ’91, ’04, ‘05, and ‘07.Investors Business Daily reported: The fact that some Democrats are already calling for the impeachment of President Trump is hardly news. What is news is the fact that even some ardent liberals are worried that reflexively jumping on the impeachment bandwagon is folly. According to a list compiled by CNN, 27 Democrats have so far come out in favor of...

    In 1986, United States President Ronald Reagan authorized military aircraft to unleash a torrent of bombs in Tripoli, Libya to send a strong message to Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. The attack was in response to Gaddafi’s involvement in the terrorist bombing of a Berlin disco that resulted in the death of American soldiers. After the successful attack, terrorists around the world understood that President Reagan was a serious adversary who would not hesitate to utilize the American military if necessary. Thankfully, Reagan did not follow the bombing with an invasion of Libya or additional military actions in the country....

    With the inauguration of Donald Trump this year, we have now had, for the first time in our history, three American presidents who were born in the same year. There have been three pairs of presidents born in the same year -- the very dissimilar John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson, in 1767; Richard Nixon and his surprise successor, Gerald Ford, in 1913; and Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush, in 1924. Now we've had three presidents who were born in calendar year 1946: Bill Clinton (in August), George W. Bush (in July) and Donald Trump (in June). Note...

    You see what happens when you start trading liberty for alleged security.  Under George W. Bush, a full on unconstitutional federalization of airport security and subsequent violations of the Fourth Amendment that take place every single day in this country were passed following the 9/11 attacks.  Now, the news is a buzz about Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah's wiretapping of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, but Project Dragnet records are now providing evidence that Donald Trump and his family were being illegally spied on by the National Security Agency (NSA) under President George W. Bush. According to the Project Dragnet database,...

    Washington (CNN) — Former President George W. Bush and Michelle Obama are surprisingly close considering their political differences, and the 43rd president credits the former first lady's appreciation for his sense of humor as a key reason. The unlikely pair have often been photographed together during formal events. When Obama embraced Bush at the opening ceremony for the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture last September, the photo of their warm interaction went viral. "When I saw her, it was a genuine expression of affection," Bush told People magazine as he reflected on the moment. The interview...

    Dear GWB You are an idiot for helping a media that tore you down. You are also a coward who couldn’t even be bothered to defend yourself when you were president, (I defended you. I wish I could take it back now, you didn't deserve to be defended) Further evidence of your cowardice -- you couldn't be bothered to criticise the terrible obama presidency. But now, now that America’s very democracy is hanging by a thread, you have the nerve to come and out and attack the only person holding it together? FUGWB, Please go crawl under a rock and...

    For eight long years, George W. Bush refused to criticize Barack Obama. “I don’t think it’s good for the country to have a former president undermine a current president,” Mr. Bush explained to Fox News’s Sean Hannity in 2014, on why he refused to critique his successor’s policies. “I think it’s bad for the presidency, for that matter.” Yet one month into President Donald Trump’s presidency, Mr. Bush decided it was OK to offer a critique of the former real estate mogul.

    Former President George W. Bush is criticizing President Donald Trump's first month in office, though he remains optimistic about the future. "I don't like the racism and I don't like the name-calling and I don't like the people feeling alienated," Bush told People magazine. "Nobody likes that." . . . "I didn't feel like speaking out before because I didn't want to complicate the job and I'm not going to this time. However, at the Bush Center we are speaking up." The Bush Center programs include immigration ceremonies, AIDS prevention programs in Africa and leadership training for Muslim women.

    A caller just mentioned George W. Bush making a comment on the present political situation in a negative fashion against President Trump AND in defense of the media!!! He is a TRAITOR along with McCain, Graham and other Republicans who are corrupt, bought-off and leading this nation over the edge of the cliff. The caller made an excellent point the Bush had nothing to say about Obama's wrecking ball on the nation. The elites are all on the special lifeboat while the Titana-US is sinking after hitting the immigrationliberalleftistpro-immorality iceberg.

    Former President George W. Bush believes President Trump is off track by fighting the media and speaking out against Islam in speeches and in his executive immigration order. Bush didn't directly criticize Trump in an NBC interview on Monday, but he used his own time in office to contrast with what how the current president is using the presidency. When asked about Trump's spats with the media, Bush said he never considered the press the "enemy of the American people," as Trump said last week. "I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy," Bush said. "We need an independent...

    Former U.S. president George W. Bush said Monday that a free press was 'indispensable to democracy' during his two White House terms – hinting that he disagrees with President Donald Trump's assessment of some reporters as 'the enemy of the people.' 'We need an independent media to hold people like me to account,' Bush said on the 'Today' show. 'I think power can be very addictive, and it can be corrosive, and it's important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power, whether it be here or elsewhere.'

    Former President George W. Bush said Monday “we all need answers” on the extent of contact between President Donald Trump’s team and the Russian government, and didn’t rule out the idea that a special prosecutor could be necessary to lead an investigation. The Republican also defended the media’s role in keeping world leaders in check, noting that “power can be addictive,” and warned against immigration policies that could alienate Muslims. “I am for an immigration policy that’s welcoming and upholds the law,” Bush told NBC’s “Today” show. Bush’s comments came after a prominent Republican in Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa of...

    Bush emphasized to host “Today” host Matt Lauer the importance to “worship freely.” “I think it’s very important for all of us to recognize one of our great strengths is for people to be able to worship the way they want to or not worship at all,” Bush said. “The bedrock of our freedom, a bedrock of our freedom, is the right to worship freely. And I — you see, I understood right off the bat, Matt this, that is an ideological conflict. And people who murder the innocent are not religious people. They want to advance an ideology. And...

    John Lewis Lied: History Reveals He Did Not Attend George Bush’s 2000 Inauguration Once a civil rights icon, now a democratic shill working energetically towards dividing America, Congressman John Lewis lied during a ‘groundbreaking’ Meet the Press interview on Sunday. He announced to a ‘shocked’ and dramatic Chuck Todd that he could not, in good conscience, attend the Trump inauguration because he felt MUH RUSSIANS did it and the election results were illegitimate. Moreover, John Lewis announced that this would be the first time ever, in his congressional career, that he’d miss a Presidential inauguration. Earth shattering. The only problem...
