    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.”
  • Vanity Please define "Neocon"

    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 release of the transcript addresses one of the Boards mandates, to release records and materials of extraordinary public interest. The declassified transcript of the interview is now available at: “The release of this historical record regarding then President Bush and Vice President Cheney’s actions in the period leading up to and...

    Former President George W. Bush will hold a public conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky next week, the Bush Institute announced on Thursday. 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 event plans to discuss threats to freedom around the world, particularly noting Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine and concerns about a potential attack on Taiwan by China. The Republican president’s discussion with Zelensky — a prominent display of support for Ukraine — comes as Republicans in the House have...

    Fox News ^ | 11/10/2022 | Ronn Blitzer
    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...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | Nov. 9, 2022 6:30 pm ET | Karl Rove
    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...

    Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-Wyo.) leadership PAC on Friday released a new ad in Arizona targeting two election deniers who are running for high-profile statewide offices, saying “we cannot give people power who will not honor elections.” “I don’t know that I have ever voted for a Democrat. But if I lived in Arizona, I absolutely would. You have a candidate for governor, Kari Lake, you have a candidate for secretary of State, Mark Finchem, both of whom have said that they will only honor the results of an election if they agree with it,” Cheney can be heard saying in...
  • Liz Cheney’s Plan To Divide The Republican Party Has Failed

    The Federalist ^ | 10/24/2022 | Mollie Hemingway
    The widespread and coordinated plan to divide the Republican Party has failed, and it’s a major reason why Democrat prospects for the 2022 midterms are so bad. Separating Republican officials from their growing coalition of voters and the issues they care about has been the Washington establishment’s goal for several years now. The “divide and conquer” plan is being run by the Democrat Party, its propaganda press, and former leaders of the Republican Party such as Liz Cheney, who see how the GOP’s new composition and approach has threatened or destroyed their hold on power.

    An unwritten pact binding the U.S. and Saudi Arabia has survived 15 presidents and seven kings through an Arab oil embargo, two Persian Gulf wars and the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Now, it is fracturing under two leaders who don’t like or trust each other. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom’s 37-year-old day-to-day ruler, mocks Biden in private, making fun of the 79-year-old’s gaffes and questioning his mental acuity... He has told advisers he hasn’t been impressed with Mr. Biden since his days as vice president, and much preferred former President Donald Trump ... Mr. Biden said on...

    It’s no secret that Karl Rove and the Bush and Cheney families are anti-Trump. These establishment RINOs are outraged that conservative and populist voters no longer support their open border, pro-amnesty, globalist, endless war agenda. Today’s GOP voters support Trump and his populist agenda. This brings us to the latest ad released by American Crossroads PAC, an organization linked to Karl Rove and the Bushes.

If the truth makes me a critic, then so be it; but I’m not going to play the pretending game. Quite frankly, I’m tired of it.Ron DeSantis is backed by the same assembly of political insiders, donors, corporations and financial backers that supported Jeb Bush. The professionally republican class know what they have in DeSantis,...

In fact, you are are one of the few Democrats who still says let’s defund the police. Are you worried at all that that could hurt some of your colleagues going into the midterm elections?”

    PORTLAND, Maine — In the summer of 2010, former President George H.W. Bush sat down at his home in Kennebunkport and jotted a quick note to a young woman who had come to Maine for a work project. “Dear Taylor,” he wrote. “There are a lot of family fans of yours here at our lovely place by the sea. Please come over tomorrow afternoon for a swim and relaxation by our pool. I believe in long shots, so I hope this one works out.” The invitation was accepted, and the next day Taylor Swift came by with several of her...

    Azhar Subedar is an Islamist with a busy schedule. One August day he is at a terror-related mosque in Boca Raton, Florida. The next, he is wakeboarding with someone whom the FBI alleged was a fundraiser for the Taliban. Two days later, he was at a global youth event, in Dallas, Texas, hosted by the US State Department. This past May, Subedar attended a Ramadan celebration at the White House, the invitation of which was from President Joe Biden, himself. Why would a radical Muslim be invited to an official gathering by the State Department or be allowed to step...

    A group of RINOs connected to the Bushs and Mitt Romney filed a brief in Florida requesting the judge to deny President Trump’s request to look into the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago. FOX News reported this morning that a group of seven former prosecutors filed an amicus brief asking the Federal judge in Florida to deny President Trump’s request to look into the FBI’s illegal raid on Mar-a-Lago. Ahead of the Department of Justice’s filing Tuesday night that opposed President Trump’s call for a “special master” to review White House documents seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, seven former...
