    Putin met the last four US presidents since he took office in the 1990s. The two leaders met again in June 2000 in Moscow after Putin became president of Russia and Clinton was in his final year in office. After Bush was sworn into office in January 2001, the two leaders met for the first time in June for a summit in Slovenia. Putin met with the recently sworn-in Obama for the first time in July 2009 in Moscow. Obama reportedly emerged from the meeting feeling confident and optimistic in resetting relations with Putin. "We think there's an excellent opportunity...
  • Fired RedState Writer Slams Site Over Hypocrisy of Layoffs: We Were ‘Insufficiently Partisan’

    The conservative blog RedState experienced “mass firings” Friday because of what its parent company, Salem Media, characterized as a decision influenced by finances. But one writer who was laid off said she is skeptical of that characterization, adding that she believes the website is effectively trying to silence voices that are not, in their view, sufficiently supportive of President Trump and his policies... “If this is a decision just strictly made for money purposes, they would want to keep the ones who were bringing in the most [page] views,” Wright said... Indeed, Mediaite obtained RedState’s traffic report for the month...
  • GOP hopes Alabama loss is wakeup call for Trump White House

    President Donald Trump managed to endorse two different losing candidates in the same Senate race, a setback that is highlighting an experience deficit within the White House political team. […] Republicans in Washington and around the country say a bungled approach to the race — in which the president wagered his party’s moral authority with nothing to show for it — should serve as a wakeup call for the administration going into what is sure to be a challenging midterm election year. “This White House is not working on all cylinders,” said Ari Fleischer, who served as press secretary to...

    Former President George W. Bush and his father, former President George H.W. Bush, both criticize President Trump in a new book to be released this month, with George W. Bush admitting that, despite Trump’s political affiliation, he’s worried “that I will be the last Republican president.” George H.W. Bush also calls Trump a “blowhard” in the book, “The Last Republicans,” by Mark K. Updegrove, which was previewed by The New York Times and CNN on Friday. "I don't like him. I don't know much about him, but I know he's a blowhard. And I'm not too excited about him being a leader,” the...

    Oh, I get it. Trump wins on North Korea. But the Uniparty Establishment can't have that. They need International crises to work fear into people on a timetable of their chosing, it's not Trump's job to solve anything. So the "Left" wing of the Uniparty hires masked protesters and other crisis actors who need to make the rent to instigate racial violence, hoping the still newbie citizen-politician Trump will over-tweet himself or step in it somehow, in some way that they can trap him. They do. Then the "right" Unipartiers, the BushMittMcCainRyanGOPe and their Never-Trump FrenchMcMuffins close in on POTUS...

    Jeb Bush, former Florida governor, former presidential hopeful and former loud critic of President Donald Trump, has stepped back into the political arena to call out his fellow Republicans as hypocrites — for not publicly condemning Trump. Sigh. Why, why, why do these entrenched Republicans insist on picking public fights with their fellow GOPers? It doesn’t endear them to anyone but their own dwindling bases. And we know their bases are dwindling because try as they might, their candidates — their Marco Rubios, their Mitt Romneys, their Jeb Bushes — just couldn’t win against Trump. Yet six-plus months into Trump’s...

    A 112-page internal document provided to U.S. News includes more dirt on Marco Rubio, Iowa vote goals and a January advertising plan. Even before Jeb Bush's uninspiring debate performance Wednesday night, his sputtering presidential campaign was working to prevent defections. Bush's top lieutenants convened with donors in sopping wet Houston on Monday to calm their fears and retrench for the unforgiving haul ahead. After the confab, Bush's team distributed a 45-page PowerPoint presentation to select reporters, summarizing an optimistic view of the race, touting the Republican candidate's cash and organization, and assuring supporters that early polls are rarely indicative of...

    nside a sleek Denver condominium, George W. Bush let a hundred donors to his brother’s campaign in on a secret. Of all the rival Republican candidates, there is one who gets under the former president’s skin, who he views as perhaps Jeb Bush’s most serious rival for the party’s nomination. It isn’t Donald Trump, whose withering insults have sought to make Jeb pay a political price for his brother’s presidency. It also isn’t Marco Rubio, Jeb’s former understudy who now poses a serious threat to his establishment support. “I just don’t like the guy,” Bush said Sunday night, according to...

    The Republican Party has played Marley’s Ghost for the past half-dozen years, dragging behind it the sins of the foreign-policy utopians who persuaded George W. Bush to bet the farm on nation-building in the Middle East. Bush’s 2004 Second Inaugural, written with the help of the Weekly Standard‘s Bill Kristol and the Washington Post‘s Charles Krauthammer, was the high-water mark of foreign-policy overreach and the cusp of Republican fortunes. By the 2006 congressional elections, the electorate had had enough, and the public’s disgust with the pointless sacrifice of blood and treasure helped propel the junior senator from Illinois into the...

    Karl Rove created a stir with his recent suggestion that former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton may have suffered traumatic brain injury in December 2012. Speaking at a conference in California, he noted, “Thirty days in the hospital? 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.” Let’s ignore the media hyperventilating and look at what Rove actually suggested. Secretary Clinton reportedly “fainted, fell and banged her head,” as The Daily Beast put it, suffering a subdural hematoma, or a hemorrhage between her...

    Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will make a decision on whether he’ll enter the 2016 presidential race by the end of this year, he said during an interview on Fox News Channel Sunday during the 25th anniversary celebration of his father’s presidency in College Station, Texas. ... He said in the Fox News interview that illegal immigration is, for many people, an effort to provide for their families, and “not a felony.” “It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family,” Bush said. “I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime. There should...

    A federal appeals court Tuesday declared unconstitutional a law allowing Americans born in Jerusalem to list Israel as their birthplace on their U.S. passports, the latest ruling in a case that stretches back a decade. … The case was brought by parents of an American boy named Menachem Zivotofsky, who was born in a Jerusalem hospital soon after the law was passed. The parents wanted to list Israel as his birthplace, but the U.S. has refused to recognize any nation's sovereignty over Jerusalem since Israel’s creation in 1948—so the boy’s U.S. passport only says “Jerusalem” as his birthplace. The Bush...

    Since arriving in the Senate in 2011, Rand Paul has been probing here and there for issues of populist resonance. Audit the secretive, sinister Federal Reserve. Rein in those TSA screeners patting down little girls. In each instance, Paul (R-Ky.) has evoked the fear of oppressive government without tipping over into the paranoia of his father’s most dedicated supporters. It has been a diluted, domesticated, decaffeinated version of the ideology that motivated Ron Paul’s presidential races.
  • Top McCain aide: We might have stripped Palin of office (Palinoia at a Defcon One level!)

    Nicolle Wallace, White House communications director under President George W. Bush and senior adviser to John McCain, has begun to talk openly about the campaign’s problems with Sarah Palin. I’m not interested here in rehashing the shortcomings of the former Alaska governor. None of that’s relevant any more, because I doubt she’ll ever again seek elected office. However, I do want to point out a remarkable bit of information that Wallace dropped into a recent Time interview: “There certainly were discussions — not for long because of the arc the campaign took — but certainly there were discussions about whether,...

    Ari Fleischer says there's no "way, shape or form" Sarah Palin can lock the Republican nomination. "I cannot see any way, shape or form that she can win the Republican primary," Fleischer, the former press secretary to President George W. Bush, said as reported by the Idaho Mountain Express. Fleischer, who was in Ketchum, Idaho to speak as part of the Sun Valley Center for the Arts' Lecture Series, said he'd never seen such a wide open Republican field, but that the former Alaska governor was not among the serious contenders....

    Dana Pierino, a Bushie and Establishment person for sure, once again was promoting Jeb Bush as being a good candidate to run for President tonight on Bill O'Reilly (TED BAXTER), that she heard his brother GW Bush thinks he should run and so does Bush 41 and she made the case that actually Jeb doesn't have "Bush Baggage" and being a Bush right now might not be a such a bad thing. Bill and Dana were lamenting that there were no one out there who were "serious" to run. I knew what they were trying to get at. Bill said...

    This loss is going to have historical consequences – how much is President Bush to blame for this loss? Is it too early to say that the blame for this loss rests squarely with President Bush and the “Bushbots”? Bush? Or is it Bush and the RINOs? . . . And worst of all to blame, the fault of what some talk show hosts call the Harriet Myers Storm-trooper crowd of Bushbots who simply would bray like a donkey whenever conservatives brought up the obvious problems with Bush from illegal immigration, to port deals, to his globalist friends and massive...

    It has been stomach-turning to listen to flunkies for Bush such as Rush Limbaugh et all call patriots who want to secure our borders “racist” for being “anti-Arab” regarding the port deal. Who’s the racist? Who the hell do you think you are - you think this is a game? Dubai Ports World is anti-Semitic, bottom line, a bunch of Nazis, and U.S. law prohibits doing business with companies who boycott Israel . The whole story regarding Dubai ports firm enforcing Israel boycott is enough of the facts to be the end of this entire deal, dead “in the water“....

    I believe we have 5 important political groups involved in today’s Presidential politics and not just the two usual suspects called the Democrats and Republicans. These 5 major groups are Democrats, Bushies, Republicans, Socialists and Clintonistas. You can only get to the Presidency through the Republican and Democrat parties and no other way. The other 3 parties the Socialists, Clintonistas and Bushies have infiltrated these two established parties to get elected. They have obviously been successful in doing this. If you intend to rise to the Presidency there are only two ladders. The Democrat ladder and the Republican ladder. So...
