    WASHINGTON -- I have in my office a framed note from President Donald Trump. It says, "Bob, Now We Really Did It. Thanks For All Of Your Help!" The note is dated Jan. 13, 2017. He was responding to my congratulatory email to him earlier acknowledging that indeed he "did it." He won the election and was then gearing up for his inauguration and what would follow. Today he has been president for almost a year and a half. What has he done? He has realized more of his conservative campaign promises than anyone since President Ronald Reagan. Perhaps he...
  • George Will urges voters to oust the Republicans in November

    George Will has been writing columns for a long, long time, and has been considered a highly influential columnist on the right. But I never have read him much; I'm not sure why, but he just never appealed to me.You'd think he would appeal to me. After all, when I experienced my political change, I considered myself (and still do consider myself, in certain ways) to be a relatively moderate conservative. Will was supposedly a moderate as well. But I found his writing boring and uninsightful for the most part.Just now I wondered whether I just wasn't remembering correctly. Maybe...
  • [Catholic Caucus] Saint George, Martyr (Gueranger)

    04/23/2018 4:46:05 AM PDT · by CMRosary · 1 replies
    Red Semidouble CLAD IN HIS BRIGHT COAT of mail, mounted on his war steed, and spearing the dragon with his lance, George, the intrepid champion of our Risen Jesus, comes to gladden us today with his feast. From the East, where he is known as the great Martyr, devotion to St. George soon spread in the Western Church, and our Christian armies have always loved and honored him as one of their dearest patrons. His martyrdom took place in Paschal Time; and thus he stands before us as the guardian of the glorious sepulcher, just as Stephen, the Protomartyr,...

    The new Texas land commissioner was a future governor or senator, maybe even a future president, in waiting. But somehow, less than four years later, Bush’s future is uncertain. “Yours truly is stuck here in Texas this week, but will be out on the trail,” Bush said. “There’s no better experience than getting involved in a presidential race because you truly do absorb so much more information than say, running for dog catcher like I did in Texas.”

    He said it. “Grab ’em by the pussy.” Of course he said it. And we laughed along, without a single doubt that this was hypothetical hot air from America’s highest-rated bloviator. Along with Donald Trump and me, there were seven other guys present on the bus at the time, and every single one of us assumed we were listening to a crass standup act. He was performing. Surely, we thought, none of this was real. We now know better. Recently I sat down and read an article dating from October of 2016; it was published days after my departure from...

    A Chicago pastor has asked the Emanuel administration to remove the names of two presidents who owned slaves from parks on the South Side, saying the city should not honor slave owners in black communities. A bronze statue of George Washington on horseback stands at the corner of 51st and King Drive, at the northwest entrance to Washington Park. Bishop James Dukes, pastor of Liberation Christian Center, said he wants the statue gone, and he wants George Washington’s name removed from the park.

    George W Bush, the former US president, is promoting a book of paintings, entitled Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief's Tribute to America's Warriors, depicting American soldiers - veterans from the ongoing "war on terror".

The hardcover edition costs an affordable $35; the deluxe, signed and personalised edition sets you...

    John Lewis’s Record in Congress Is Less Than Heroic The Democrat deserves an honored place in history. But Trump has a point about what he’s done lately. Jason L. Riley If Donald Trump had been referring to Rep. John Lewis’s civil-rights record when he wrote on Twitter Saturday that the congressman was “all talk” and “no action,” the president-elect might need a refresher course in U.S. history. One of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s closest allies, Mr. Lewis was on the front lines of the successful fight to end Jim Crow. But for anyone who bothers to check out the...
  • Clooney hopes Trump presidency won’t spawn ‘terrible things’

    George Clooney didn’t vote for Donald Trump and doesn’t think he’s the right choice to run the United States. But he hopes Trump succeeds in office, because “when the president of the United States fails, really terrible things happen.” Clooney is one of the most politically outspoken actors in Hollywood, and he defended fellow star Meryl Streep on Monday after the president-elect slammed her for comments at the Golden Globe Awards. Trump tweeted that Streep is “overrated” and a “flunky” of Hillary Clinton. Clooney said that “I support her right forever” to speak out. At reception in London for Syria...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: We've got George Will. I cannot tell you how this disappoints me. George Will -- way back, long ago when I was still spinning records as a disc jockey -- was an idol of mine. I remember I met George Will in Dallas in 1992, Republican convention. I was there, having been sent there by a radio station in Kansas City that wanted to get me out of town. So they sent me down to Dallas and said, "Go down there and prepare commentaries and then send 'em back. We might air them and we might not."...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Sunday that President George W. Bush was "one of the best presidents on immigration," but that the Republican Party had changed after being "hijacked by a radical wing" of the country. "The Republican Party is the Grand Old Party. It's done great things for our country," the Democratic House leader told NBC's "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd. "What we've been saying to them is, take back your party. "It's been hijacked by a radical wing of, I don't even know of what, of our country, not even of your party," Pelosi said....

    President Obama and former President George W. Bush spoke Tuesday at a funeral service for the five slain Dallas police officers. There were many powerful moments throughout the service, but there is one moment that has been turning heads -- President Bush's dance moves during "Battle Hymn of the Republic." The former president swayed and marched in place. Michelle Obama, who was standing to Bush's left and holding hands with him, appeared surprised at first and then smiled.

    The iconic American children's book character Curious George is celebrating Ramadan in one of the latest books from the 75-year-old series.It's Ramadan, Curious George was written by Pakistani-American Muslim author Hena Khan who stated she was glad the book was released during this contentious election season, particularly with Donald Trump's call for a ban on Muslim immigration. "There's a very dangerous narrative being spread about Muslims and inaccurate things being said," Khan said. "[The book] comes at the right time in terms of trying to promote understanding and tolerance." Khan has already written two children's books about Islam, according to...
  • Chilcot inquiry: What Tony Blair and George W. Bush left behind in Iraq

    Baghdad, Iraq (CNN)"Our armies do not come into your cities and lands as conquerors or enemies, but as liberators," read the proclamation to the people of Iraq. These could have been the words of British Prime Minister Tony Blair or President George W. Bush at the time of the invasion of Iraq in 2003. But it dates back to 1917, penned by Lieutenant General Sir Stanley Maude, the commander of British forces in Iraq. The British occupation that followed was messy, though not as messy as its modern U.S.-led version. Then, the people of Iraq waged a bloody insurrection against...

    I've had a pretty good relationship with the CDC here in Atlanta. With one group, I stayed for six years, did very well by them, and supported two major web applications. Things change, though, and when my division decided on a technology that I had no interest in -- Dynamics -- I moved on to another promising group. That group was.... um... well, how can I say it. It was underwhelming in terms of procedure and culture. Developers are treated as commodities, and our knowledge and opinions are not barely noticed, much less respected. Further, the technology I was hired...
