  • GEORGE H.W. BUSH'S DEPUTY AG SAYS BILL BARR IS 'UN-AMERICAN,' THINKS TRUMP IS 'ABOVE THE LAW'

    Former Deputy Attorney General Donald Ayer called his former colleague, Attorney General William Barr, "un-American" because he thinks the president is above the law. "The reason I say he's un-American...is that the central tenet of our legal system and our justice system is that no person is above the law," Ayer told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Monday. "Bill Barr's vision is that there is one man—one person—who needs to be above the law and that is the president." Having known Barr for 40 years, Ayer told Blitzer that there was never a reason to "test" Barr's "very strong view" that...
  • Political Memo; Democrats Don't Need Sacrificial Lamb for '92

    The New York Times ^ | March 11, 1991 | Robin Toner
    Presidential elections are not canceled because the incumbent President is skyrocketing in the public opinion polls. As a result, Democrats are putting on their game faces and beginning to confront the hard realities of the 1992 campaign. This is still a pessimistic party as President Bush basks in the afterglow of the Persian Gulf war. But personal ambition and party imperatives are beginning to produce a few signs of life among the Democrats. "I will admit that today it looks somewhere between unlikely and impossible that a Democrat will win the Presidency," said Robert S. Strauss, chairman of the Democratic...
  • Ex-Bush Aide Has Damning Theory For Why Trump Supporters Won't Turn On Him (LOL)

    Peter Wehner said there’s a reason why many of President Donald Trump’s most loyal supporters won’t turn on him. “It is almost like a hermetically sealed world,” Wehner said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” “Facts are like BBs, they’re just bouncing off of a brick wall. They just don’t penetrate.” Wehner, who served in the administrations of presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and as a senior aide in the White House of President George W. Bush, said it comes down to a concept called the psychology of accommodation. “People decided early on for a variety of reasons to accommodate...

    Andrew Card, who served as White House chief of staff during the George W. Bush administration, on Monday expressed support for House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry of President Trump, saying that "clearly lines have been crossed." "I do think an impeachment inquiry is warranted," Card, who led Bush's White House team between 2001 and 2006, said on MSNBC while addressing revelations about Trump's alleged efforts to enlist Ukraine's help in his 2020 reelection campaign. Card cautioned that he wasn't sure if Trump's actions qualified as an "impeachable offense" and implored members of Congress to let the investigation play out before reaching...

  • We Made Donald %#&@ Trump PRESIDENT -- What Else Can We Do?

    This nation is mind-bogglingly generous. But decades of lies make it impossible for even the most tender-hearted American to fall for this bait-and-switch one more time. Every politician swears up and down that he wants a "secure border." But then these same politicians go absolutely berserk when Trump says he wants to build a wall.

    Congress has tried to sneak through amnesties three times in a little more than a decade. Every time, the American people somehow found out -- despite the best efforts of the press -- rose up in a rage and killed the proposed bills. In 2006, President Bush got the brilliant idea to push amnesty on the country. His party was wiped out the very next time voters could get to the polls. Liberals like to claim that their brave opposition to the Iraq War led to the midterm slaughter, but, as I recall, they were against that war in the...

    BROWNSVILLE, Texas - If you want a short course in understanding why border relations between the U.S. and Mexico tend to be a bit shaky, I heartily recommend a visit to the place where the border wall begins. That’s in this city at the eastern end of the Rio Grande near where it empties into the Gulf of Mexico. To get to the wall, which was built during the Bush 43 administration, you drive to the campus of Texas Southmost College and then follow a dirt road as it runs along an eight-foot fence. The fence soon turns into a...

    WASHINGTON -- Who will speak for President Donald Trump at his state funeral, far in the future though it should be? That must be what the 45th president was thinking as he sat in the front pew at the funeral for former President George H.W. Bush. Bush was eulogized by a man of words, a foreign world leader, a onetime ally in Congress and his eldest son -- Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and Bush biographer Jon Meacham, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, former Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., and son and former president George W. Bush. Is there a scribe...

    George H.W. Bush "gave the nation its most successful one-term presidency." He "was the best one-term president the country has ever had, and one of the most underrated presidents of all time." So said two not impartial sources -- the late president's vice president, Dan Quayle, and his Houston friend and secretary of state, who was with him at the end, James Baker. But their assessments are entirely defensible. The toughest one-term competitor was President James K. Polk, who achieved all four of his goals -- gaining the Oregon Territory and the Pacific Coast, establishing an independent treasury and lowering...

    Whatever you might think of the Bush dynasty’s legacy, no one can ever accuse the family of not showing class and decency. And their sterling example of this, while saying goodbye to their beloved patriarch, has also served as an important reminder of just how awful the McCain family is.

    They just couldn’t help themselves. During their Wednesday evening reports on the deeply touching and emotional funeral service for the late President George H.W. Bush at the National Cathedral, broadcast networks ABC, CBS, and NBC had to get in their digs against President Trump for his behavior (or lack thereof). One even touted how Trump managed to keep his mouth shut about Bush all week. In the midst of their stories on the funeral service, both ABC and CBS noted the tension between President Trump and the Clintons. “The Trumps and Clintons did not shake hands,” reported CBS Evening News...

    RUSH: Here is Patrick in Brecksville, Ohio. Great to have you, sir. CALLER: Hi, Rush. How are you? Mega dittos, 1991 dittos. You know, with the Bush funeral, I’ve had a real hard time, you know, kind of feeling my normal grief or normal respect for him. I respect him. I think he was a fantastic man. But given how cynical I’ve become on so many things and sort of his lack of fighting back and what the Republicans have done over the last 40 years, I find it really hard now to have as much, you know, respect or...

    President Trump exchanged greetings with his predecessor Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama after arriving at George H.W. Bush ’s funeral Wednesday, but there was a noticeable lack of warmth between the commander-in-chief and the woman he defeated to win the White House. Bush’s funeral brought together all of the living former presidents – Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter – as well as Trump and first lady Melania Trump. The pair was seated in the front row of the Washington National Cathedral next to the Obamas. Trump shook hands with Obama and former first...

    Trump and first lady Melania Trump took their place in the front row at President George H. W. Bush's funeral at National Cathedral yesterday morning, right next to the Obamas. It was a bit awkward considering the past war of words between the two couples. Trump has accused Obama of authoring some of the worst deals the U.S. has ever signed and is currently upending his predecessor's legacy, while Obama has sounded off on Trump's policies. Meanwhile, Michelle Obama wrote some unflattering things about 45 in her new book, including how she'll never forgive him for his role in...

    There is no light coming from the Washington Post, but only the kind of darkness that corrosive hatred brings The Washington Post headline on the Bush funeral shouts volumes: ‘Bush funeral: Trump sits with fellow presidents but still stands alone’. WaPo wants a grieving world to believe that “from the moment he crossed the transept of the soaring Washington National Cathedral, tore off his overcoat and took his seat in the front pew, President Trump was an outsider.” Wrong: Donald Trump “was an outsider” from the day he won the 2016 presidential election, something the mainstream and social media saw...
