    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...

    Reservations in the White House on troop levels in Afghanistan have reportedly led the Trump Administration to a point where it is considering withdrawing U.S. troops from the beleaguered country altogether, contrary to recommendations from the Pentagon. The Wall Street Journal reported that without managing to green light a plan to send 3,900 more troops to Afghanistan to turn back an advancing Taliban, the White House is instead considering scaling back U.S. presence there. One unnamed senior administration official was quoted as saying that the question of U.S. commitment in Afghanistan is a fundamental one for the White House. “It...

    Former President George W. Bush says he can’t remember if he said “that was some weird s***” after President Trump’s inauguration speech in January. He was asked about the alleged remark in an interview that aired on NPR’s “Morning Edition” Thursday. He does, however, clearly remember his awkward response to rain that day. “I wish I got the rain poncho on a little more cleanly,” Bush joked, referring to his struggle to put on a transparent poncho during the ceremony as it began to rain. “My daughters were aghast. ‘Dad, you’re a national tweet sensation. You’re trending,’ or whatever the...

    Former president George W. Bush reportedly said Donald Trump’s inaugural speech was “some weird sh-t.” Bush made the comments after the January inauguration ceremony, which was also attended by Presidents Obama, Carter and Clinton, according to New York Magazine. “That was some weird sh-t,” Bush said before departing the dais, where he infamously struggled to wrangle a poncho in the day’s downpour.

    One day in late spring in the early days of the George W. Bush administration, FDA inspectors visited the headquarters of Sargento cheese in Plymouth, Wisconsin—a routine visit as part of the federal government's efforts to ensure the safety of the food we eat. The inspectors took samples of cheese to test for bacteria. Sargento conducted tests on cheese from the same lot. A week later, the results from both sets of tests were in—the cheese was bacteria-free. Sargento, having gotten the all-clear from the government, shipped the cheese to stores across the country. Two months later, however, the FDA...

    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,...

    This is the 13th anniversary of the start of the Iraq War II. What if President George W. Bush had not invaded Iraq? I suggest this scenario: 1. Saddam Hussein would have become a bigger threat to the region. He had clearly come to the conclusion that the West would not stop him and was acting as such. 2. Iraq would have continued shooting at U.S. and UK planes enforcing UN resolutions. How many times do you allow someone to fire missiles at your aircraft? 3. What about Israel? We do know today that Iraq won't be attacking Israel or...

She noted how members of both parties can work together if they can find common ground. “We have a responsibility to find common ground and I did with Speaker [John] Boehner as well,” Pelosi said.

    Former President George W. Bush insisted Monday that “we all need answers” about possible connections between Russian officials and President Trump's associates. "I think we all need answers. ... I'm not sure the right avenue to take. I am sure, though, that that question needs to be answered,” Bush said to NBC's "Today" host Matt Lauer. U.S. intelligence agencies believe Russian hackers attempted to sway the election for Trump, while multiple news reports say that Trump campaign officials had "constant" contact with Russian intelligence during the election.

    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.

    Donald Trump is one month into his presidency. For his supporters, every day is Christmas. Cabinet picks under the Christmas tree. Executive orders in the stockings hung by the chimney with care. Democrats gnashing their teeth and pulling out their hair. Are all Republicans happy? Surprisingly no. Republicans, particularly self-described conservatives, should celebrating. To start with, he is doing exactly what he said he would do, following through on campaign promises. Unlike most GOP members of Congress. And long overdue, a Republican punching back at a biased and agenda-driven media. Music to Republican ears, a president calling out CNN as...

Well, yes, that’s what the folks at Focus On The Family want me and others to do. The October 2008 issue of Citizen magazine has a full-page article with the headline: “Thanks, Mr. President.” A smaller headline reads: “Pro-life taxpayers can thank President Bush for keeping their dollars from being misspent.” But, there’s a slight problem here that keeps me...
  • Robart: Student Expelled for Sexual Misconduct Can’t Defend Himself

    Remember Amherst College student "John Doe," who was expelled for sexual misconduct, even though he had good reason to believe that his accuser had actually assaulted him? A judge recently blocked Doe's attempt to subpoena his female accuser's text messages on grounds that re-litigating the matter "would impose emotional and psychological trauma" on her. Consider the implications of this decision. According to Seattle District Judge James Robart, a student who believes Amherst violated his due process rights, wrongfully expelled him, and ignored subsequent evidence that his accuser, "Sandra Jones," was the actual violator of the college's sexual misconduct policies, does...

    Didn't think he was the "true elected president". Unprecedented, huh? Not only was it John Lewis who picked the fight with Donald Trump - regardless of what you keep hearing to the contrary - but he pulled a fast one on you with the claim that he’s never done it before. First time Lewis has ever missed an inauguration since he was elected to Congress in 1986, is that right? Totally unprecedented, and all because of the unique awfulness of Donald Trump, yes?

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed former President George W. Bush and the Republicans on Friday for the more than $9 trillion that has been added to the national debt under President Obama's watch. Pelosi argued that under Obama, the annual budget deficit, which contributes to the national debt, has been reduced dramatically, and said that without Obama's work, the national debt would be even higher. She also mostly blamed Bush for not paying for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. "When President Obama stood on the steps on the Capitol eight years from next week, the [budget] deficit was...
