    The University of New England welcomed two former White House chiefs of staff to the Biddeford Campus on Wednesday for the 13th annual George and Barbara Bush Distinguished Lecture Series, offering behind-the-scenes accounts of a presidential administration during a transformational time in history. Featured speaker John Sununu, former chief of Staff to President George H.W. Bush, and moderator Andrew Card, once Sununu’s deputy, painted a picture of a president who cared deeply about his domestic agenda, even though he was known for his foreign policy. “George Bush’s reputation as a foreign policy president was earned,” Sununu said. “But (he) was...
  • ‘Morning Joe’ Says George W Bush ‘Would Have Gutted’ Trump if They Actually Ran Against Each Other (Video)

    Donald Trump once again mixed up candidates he ran against this week, this time conflating Jeb Bush with George W. Bush. But, had Trump actually run against George W. Bush, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” crew is pretty sure Trump would have been “gutted” in no time at all. During a speech in South Carolina on Monday, Trump recounted to his followers that, in 2016, “everyone thought Bush was going to win,” because he “supposedly was a military person,” but then mocked his military leadership. “He got us into the Middle East,” Trump said. “How did that work out, right? But they...

    Texas Scorecard ^ | September 20, 2023 | Sydnie Henry
    Attorney General Ken Paxton has returned to work following more than three months of leave after being impeached by the Texas House. He was acquitted on all charges by a majority of state senators, with only two Republicans—Kelly Hancock (North Richland Hills) and Robert Nichols (Jacksonville)—voting to convict. Now, Paxton told Texas Scorecard, he’s excited to continue serving Texans. "It’s been hard to sit on the sidelines for four months and watch things happen and not have the ability to go impact them. That’s what I ran for." He said that ultimately, the blame rests with House Speaker Dade Phelan...

    Jeb Bush wasted no time expressing his gratitude to Bermuda and its reinsurance market during the 62nd General Assembly & Annual Meeting of the World Federation of Exchanges at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club. [cut] The remarks were made during a wideranging and freewheeling “fireside chat” with the former governor, his son George P. Bush and Thomas Gallagher, chairman and CEO of Miami International Holdings, which owns the Bermuda Stock Exchange. [cut] “I am worried about his [President Biden] age.

  • The George W. Bush impeachment push wasn’t unreasonable

    washingtonpost ^ | 09/18/2023 | Anthony Salemi
    I read with absolute astonishment the Sept. 14 editorial “Republicans cheapen a vital power of the House.” The editorial stated that “some on the far left tried to impeach President George W. Bush on unreasonable grounds.” Mr. Bush misled the country about weapons of mass destruction, waged a war against a sovereign country (without U.N. approval) and caused the deaths of thousands of innocent people in the process. If that’s an unreasonable proposition, then the criteria for impeachment need to be reevaluated.

    Ron DeSantis is attending a Texas fundraiser hosted by Lamar Smith, a former Texas Congressman who is now a registered foreign agent and a donor to Democrat politician Jamie Raskin, who led impeachment efforts against Donald Trump over January 6th.Smith is advertised by Team DeSantis as one of the hosts of the Friday fundraiser in San Antonio. The Florida Governor is currently polling at 10 percent to Trump’s 61 percent in Texas, and Smith seems unlikely to help burnish the Floridian’s America First credentials, being a registered foreign agent.Despite his background as a GOP legislator, Smith is also a donor...

    Do not let it escape your notice that not a single professional Republican entity has stood up to show their support for Texas AG Ken Paxton or congratulate him on the clear and decisive impeachment victory against the corrupt UniParty system in the Lone Star state. Not a word from The Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA), or any other professional Republican group.Instead, only President Donald Trump and the overwhelming majority of the MAGA base have stood strong with Paxton – before, during and after the smear campaign to remove him. Keep this BIG UGLY data point in mind. On the...

    The executive director of the George W. Bush Institute, who organized a letter from presidential libraries calling for national unity, previously leaked the now-debunked Steele dossier to reporters during height of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation. David Kramer, who worked in the State Department under President George W. Bush and was an associate of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), pushed for the foundations and centers of former presidents to sign a letter about unifying the country. However, in 2016 Kramer provided the Steele dossier to BuzzFeed, which published it without corroborating its allegations that then-President-elect Donald Trump was a puppet...

    President George W. Bush visited Ground Zero just days after the 9/11 terror attacks. He stood atop the World Trade Center rubble and delivered an impromptu speech that would comfort first responders at the scene and unite Americans. In Fox Nation’s "I Can Hear You," host Martha MacCallum sits down with members of the team that accompanied the president to New York on that day and witnessed what would become known as the "bullhorn moment." Before the 43rd president made his way to the Big Apple, it was of high importance to allow first responders to continue rescue efforts without...

    As you’re probably aware, Ken Paxton, arguably the best Attorney General in the nation, is facing impeachment proceedings led by so-called “Republicans” in Texas. Many are shocked to see so many RINOs in leadership roles in the Lone Star State. But it makes sense when you consider Texas’s long history of establishment politics. It’s a sad reminder that the establishment won’t back down easily, and they’re not afraid to get in the gutter and play dirty; as we can see with Paxton’s impeachment trial. Fortunately, Paxton’s legal team is skinning the RINOs as we speak. ... As it stands, the...

    As you’re probably aware, Republican RINOs in the Texas House have impeached Ken Paxton, arguably the most popular and effective Attorney General in the nation. Paxton was laser focused on challenging the Biden administration at every turn — and not through empty rhetoric or heated tweets — but through old-fashioned, traditional litigation. Naturally, the GOP establishment united to take him down. The silver lining is that, so far, Paxton has secured the backing of eight out of the ten Texas Senators he’ll need to overcome this unjust political witch hunt. ... There’s an impeachment going on in the Texas legislature...

    As the second day of the impeachment trial of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton took place, his lawyer Tony Buzbee brought immediate sunlight onto the motives of those who want Paxton removed.Ken Paxton defeated George P Bush in the primary race. The Bush clan and professional republicans in the Texas political circle were not happy.Jeff Mateer was the Asst. AG when Paxton took office; Mateer is part of the professional republican apparatus who did not like Paxton, and Mator became a whistleblower against his boss. In this soundbite Tony Buzbee puts the timeline of activity in front of Mateer, including...

    The suicide rate among U.S. veterans may be much higher than estimated by state and national data, according to a study conducted by the national nonprofit America's Warrior Partnership (AWP). According to the research, in the states examined—including Alabama, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, and Oregon—the daily rate of suicide among former service members was 1.37 times greater than previously reported by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). If the eight states collectively represented the national rate, the veteran suicide rate would be 2.4 times greater than previously reported by the VA, according to the study. That means that...

    While off the Japanese island of Chichijima on this day in history on Sept. 2, 1944, then-future President George H.W. Bush was the only survivor after his aircraft was shot down by enemy fire, according to the National WWII Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana. At the time, Lt. Junior Grade George Bush was a pilot with Torpedo Squadron Fifty-One (VT-51) aboard the aircraft carrier USS San Jacinto (CVL-30), a light carrier that was deployed in the North Pacific, according to U.S. Naval History and Heritage Command. Bush’s squadron was conducting a bombing mission when it encountered heavy anti-aircraft fire, according...

    Alberto Gonzales’ tenure as U.S. attorney general was tough to defend. The Brennan Center for Justice’s Andrew Cohen, during his time as CBS News’ chief legal analyst, wrote in 2007, “By any reasonable standard, the Gonzales Era at the Justice Department is void of almost all redemptive qualities. He brought shame and disgrace to the Department.” A year later, Slate’s Dahlia Lithwick added that Gonzales helped create a Justice Department in which “politics sometimes had no end.” Nevertheless, Gonzales remained quite popular with Republicans, even after he left George W. Bush’s cabinet, which makes his latest Washington Post op-ed all...
