    Classified documents seem to be everywhere. It’s a big deal, but why is the praetorian guard leftist media treating Trump different than everyone else? Obama said he didn’t take any documents with him. But Mark wants everyone to know that Biden’s documents are Obama’s documents. A huge piece of crime tape should be wrapped around D.C.--------------------------------------Some of these ex-Presidents and Vice Presidents...Let me show you how pathetic the media are. So I am reading here in the Daily Mail and there are others, 4 former Presidents have no classified documents. Really? And how do we know that? “Because statements were...

    Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton are sidestepping the classified documents controversies embroiling their successors, with staffers saying the former presidents all turned over their materials to the National Archives and Records Administration years ago when they left office. "That process was conducted in 2008 and 2009, and all Presidential records – classified and unclassified – were turned over to the National Archives upon leaving the White House," said Freddy Ford, Bush's spokesperson, when asked what Bush is doing to assess whether he has any classified documents in his possession, in light of recent discoveries that President Joe...

    On Tuesday’s Mark Levin Show, all top government officials take documents home with them when leaving office, it just happens. That is why it is ridiculous to take Bill Barr and legal analysts and others in the press at face value who are out to get Trump and want him thrown in jail for this. Barack Obama, Bush, Cheney, Gore, and Hillary are uncharacteristically quiet about Biden’s current classified document scandal because they know they have documents too. The National Archives has been politicized to the point of it being a joke, and Merrick Garland and his team of Castro-like...

    The George W. Bush Institute is calling on the United States and its allies increase their aid to Ukraine and address the ongoing refugee crisis. The institute released a series of policy recommendations to the Biden administration and Congress on Wednesday, including international proposals regarding the war in Ukraine and domestic recommendations about immigration laws and education. The organization recommended sending more aid to Ukraine, like tanks, fighter jets and missile and air defense systems, saying the aid the U.S. has already sent to the country is “not enough.” “Helping Ukraine push out all Russian occupying and invading forces from...

    Jenna Bush Hager wanted to “hide” when her grandma Barbara Bush body-shamed her as a teenager. The former first daughter was wearing a yellow bikini when her grandparent stated she was “looking chubby,” Bush Hager recently told “Today” show viewers. The journalist clarified last week that she “adored” her family member, who died in 2018, despite her “biting personality.” The former first lady apologized to her granddaughter years after the comment, explaining to Bush Hager that she had been “talking to [herself]” since her own mother, Pauline Pierce, “said those types of things” to her growing up.

    President Joe Biden has quietly continued his predecessor’s America-first tariffs.Free traders on the left and the right routinely excoriated Donald Trump for his willingness to implement tariffs on foreign imports. With the election of Joe Biden in 2020, many hoped the incoming president would reverse the former president’s “protectionist” trade policies and return to free trade orthodoxy. This, however, never happened. In fact, U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai, just two weeks ago, pushed back against claims made by the World Trade Organization that the Trump-era tariffs violated international trade rules: The WTO is on “very, very thin ice.”President Biden has,...

    Progressive Democrat Rep. Cori Bush (MO) faced backlash online after lamenting the recent execution of Amber (previously “Scott”) McLaughlin, a biological man identifying as a transgender woman who was convicted of brutally raping and killing his ex-girlfriend. Following the execution by the state of Missouri, far-left “Squad” member Cori Bush released a statement saying that McLaughlin was “killed by state-sanctioned, inhumane capital punishment.” “My heart is with her family and loved ones,” the Democrat congresswoman said, making no mention of McLaughlin’s victims. “I yearn for the day when our society acknowledges that state-sanctioned murder will never achieve justice.”

    In 2004, former President Bill Clinton had surgery to remove scar tissue around his lung. In the days that followed, who called him on the phone? Former President George H.W. Bush, anxious to check on him. “What do your doctors say? Are you sore? How much can you exercise? Are you using your treadmill?” That is my favorite moment in a collection of stories that Liz Joyner and I have been calling “treasonous friendships.” I grew up in the time and place where despising Bill and Hillary Clinton was just a rite of passage — a way of signaling you...

    In the years since former President George H. W. Bush and his wife Barbara's deaths, a number of books have come out about the couple's lives and political careers. But Rev. Russell Levenson, Jr. believed one large part of the couple's lives was missing: their faith. Levenson serves as the rector at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston and got to know the couple over more than a decade, as the Bushes regularly attended Sunday services. He has reflected a lot on his relationship with them and decided to chronicle not only their lives and deaths but also what he...

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — As the sun began to set over Purdue University Tuesday, around 100 people from the Purdue community marched to Elliott Hall of Music to protest the arrival of former United States President George W.

Bush was invited as part of outgoing President Mitch Daniels’ final Presidential Lecture Series. Identified media were not allowed inside the event Tuesday night.

"41" called the Houstonian Hotel home during his presidency, even listing its address, 111 North Post Oak Lane, on his driver's license as his official Houston address. He and...

    Former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Michael Chertoff on Sunday called potential Republican efforts to impeach the agency’s current leader, Alejandro Mayorkas, a “political stunt.” In an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation” moderator Margaret Brennan, Chertoff, who served under former President George W. Bush, said House Republicans threatening to impeach Mayorkas would be engaging in performative politics, calling any effort to do so a “very sad day.”

    Would someone please define "Neocon"? I can't quite figure it out based on the usage of the word here on FR. From what I can tell it seems to be anyone who doesn't think Putin is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I know it can't be that. Where did the term come from, and what exactly does it mean?

    Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama are hosting back-to-back conferences about disinformation in the days following Donald Trump's 'big announcement.' Bush, 76, will host his The Struggle for Freedom conference in Dallas on November 16, while Obama's democracy conference will be held in New York City on the 17th. Trump's big announcement - largely rumored to be his 2024 presidential campaign announcement - is set for Tuesday. Organizers said the conferences were not planned together, but will focus on the rising threats from authoritarianism and disinformation. David J. Kramer, of the Bush Institute, said it was 'terrific' the...

The conversation is part of the Bush Institute’s conference on the “Struggle for Freedom” on Nov. 16, where Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen will also provide virtual remarks.

    The White House has declassified and released the 9/11 Commission's notes on an interview they held with then-President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney in 2004, exploring the situations prior to, during, and after the attacks on the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001. One area of discussion was how the U.S. had been working on counterterrorism prior to the attacks. Bush said that in early 2001 his administration had been working "to change the conditions that caused terror to arise." In particular, Bush mentioned working on relations with Uzbekistan and Saudi Arabia. "This was a difficult problem," the...

    The red wave never came. What happened in Tuesday’s midterms was closer to a trickle. As of this writing, we still don’t know definitively which party controls the House. It’s likely to be the Republicans but not by much. Before Tuesday, the House had 222 Democrats (that includes two vacant Democratic seats) and 213 Republicans (including one vacant Republican seat). As of 4 p.m. Eastern Time Wednesday, the Associated Press had called 206 seats for the GOP and Republicans were poised to win 18 other contests. That would leave the GOP with 224 seats to the Democrats’ 211. It will...
