  • Michael Chertoff: “The Hijacking of Homeland Security“

    The Trump administration’s deliberate decision to intervene in the Portland protests with a heavy hand, unconventional means and inflammatory political rhetoric has contributed to growing public distrust — particularly of the Department of Homeland Security. Critics of the department are now rightly worried that its law enforcement agents might be increasingly deployed by President Trump to score political points, or even interfere with the November election.
  • George W. Bush: Those silencing protesters 'do not understand the meaning of America'

    How do we end systemic racism in our society? The only way to see ourselves in a true light is to listen to the voices of so many who are hurting and grieving,” Bush said in a statement Tuesday. “Those who set out to silence those voices do not understand the meaning of America — or how it becomes a better place,” he said. Bush said he and his wife, Laura, have “resisted the urge to speak out, because this is not the time for us to lecture. It is time for us to listen.”

    The economics director at President George W. Bush’s advocacy center slammed President Donald Trump’s popular, pro-American immigration policy. The May 1 slam came just before Bush posted a May 2 video urging national unity in the coronavirus crash that has pushed more than 25 million Americans out of jobs. “The most important thing to remember in this is that we don’t want [Trump’s] temporary policy to become permanent immigration policy,” economic director Laura Collins said a video posted on the center’s Twitter account. She continued: We know immigrants are good for the economy. We know they’re good for our culture....

    Former Rep. Ron Paul on Thursday called for the firing of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease specialist leading President Trump’s medical response to the coronavirus pandemic. Mr. Paul, a retired doctor who ran three times for president during his decades in politics, also called Dr. Fauci a “fraud” and encouraged Americans to “quit listening to him.” The former Republican congressman from Texas made the remarks during an internet program he co-hosts, the Ron Paul Liberty Report, after Dr. Fauci slashed the number of Americans projected to die from COVID-19, the infectious respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus. The...

    President Trump in a new book reportedly takes aim at Republican leaders including former President George W. Bush and the late Sen. John McCain (Ariz.). In the book, "American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War and the Rise of President Trump," by Politico Magazine chief correspondent Tim Alberta, Trump said he "brought the [Republican] Party back" after it was in "big trouble," Axios reported early Wednesday. Trump reportedly attributed the party's previous failures to his predecessors, including Bush, who "caused tremendous division ... tremendous death and tremendous monetary loss" during his presidency by focusing on foreign...

    Former President George W. Bush said Monday that the U.S. should not shy away from enforcing its borders — but he also called on Congress to set aside political acrimony and approve a broad legalization for illegal immigrants. Mr. Bush, who himself led a massive round of wall-building beginning in 2006, did not specifically praise or attack President Trump, who is now engaged in another wall fight. But the former president did say Congress should again attempt to tackle “comprehensive immigration reform.” That’s the name backers use for bills offering amnesty from deportation to millions of illegal immigrants. Mr. Bush...

    (Newser) – Michelle Obama and George W. Bush have long had a special relationship, and at John McCain's funeral, a video of the former president handing the former first lady a cough drop as they sat next to one another in the crowd went viral. Obama, appearing on TODAY Thursday, explained. "It was a simple gesture," she said. As Bush got out a cough drop for his wife, Laura, "I looked over and I said, 'Hand me a cough drop,'" and he did. "President Bush and I, we are forever seatmates because of protocol. That's how we sit at all...
  • George W. Bush Raising Money to Maintain Trump Cover-up (Textbook definition of delusion)

    George W. Bush, who declined to endorse Donald Trump (or anybody) in 2016, and made muttered elliptical criticisms of the 45th president, has thrown himself into the task of covering up Trump’s many crimes. Bush, reports Politico, is raising money for candidates who are committed to maintaining the cover-ups. To be sure, Bush doesn’t put it that way, and almost certainly doesn’t think of it that way. But it is syllogistically true. The Republican majorities in both chambers of Congress have followed a course of non-oversight, blocking disclosure of Trump’s tax returns, allowing him to to be paid by figures...

  • George W. Bush: I am ‘disturbed’ by the immigration rhetoric

    Former President George W. Bush is “disturbed” by the "rhetoric" in the current immigration debate. Bush attended an event at the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Ark., on Thursday with former President Bill Clinton, CNN reported. He said the current immigration debate “undermines the goodness of America.” "I think it doesn't recognize the valuable contributions that immigrants make to our society," Bush said. "And it obscures the fact — the rhetoric does — that the system is broken and needs to be fixed." There has been a national debate over handling immigration after the Trump administration implemented what it...

    Kanye West revealed in a TMZ interview on Tuesday that he wanted to apologize to George W. Bush for saying in 2005 that the president did not care about black people in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Kanye West said he was always told not to apologize to Bush, but that he recently saw the former president pushing his father’s wheelchair at Barbara Bush’s funeral in March, and he felt sympathy for him. “Do you know how bad I would want to go to George Bush and say I’m sorry for hurting you. I was an artist I was hurting...

    Russia meddled in U.S election, George W. Bush says ABU DHABI (Reuters) - Former U.S. president George W. Bush accused Russia on Thursday of meddling in the U.S. 2016 presidential election, calling Russian President Vladimir Putin a “brilliant tactician”. Bush, interviewed on stage at a business conference in the capital of the United Arab Emirates, said there was clear evidence that the Russians had meddled but whether that affected the outcome of the election was another question. “But they meddled and that is dangerous for democracy,” he said, adding that Russia had done the same thing during the Cold War...

    They were the leaders of the free world, but presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama didn’t let that responsibility get in the way of a little fun.(snip) While Bush made a practice of making fun of himself, the Obamas were known to good-naturedly tease their employees. For Bernard’s first day at the White House, he wore an orange Hermès tie that he second-guessed all morning as staffer after staffer commented on it. Then, he arrived in Michelle Obama’s office to greet his new boss. “Oh, my . . . your tie!” she exclaimed before bursting into laughter and going in for...
  • Vanity - "Republican Establishment" RINOs, "Never Trumpers", Dead-On-Arrival.

    Republican Establishment, RINO, Ed Gillespie wanted no part of POTUS, Donald J.Trump in his campaign. Instead, he chose and preferred the deadbeat, "has-been" ex-POTUS, G.W.Bush to campaign with and for him. Ed Gillespie got massively politically slaughtered last evening by a weak, incompetent Democrat. Thousands of Virginian Trump supporters stayed home and did not turn out to vote for Gillespie. In fact, Gillespie's two running mates Jill Vogel & John Adams received more votes then Gillespie who was heading the ticket. I did not like Ed Gillespie, never did like him, but I gave him 100% support...across the board in...

    They were among the most powerful and, in many cases, most popular political figures in their states, proven Republican vote-getters who coalesced remarkably early around one of their own for the presidency: George W. Bush. And so, from Tom Ridge in Pennsylvania to John Engler in Michigan to his own brother Jeb, in Florida, Mr. Bush could count on the company of an important Republican governor when he campaigned in the biggest battleground states. These governors and others like Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin helped define Mr. Bush's very candidacy, vouching for his character, policies and record on the network talk...

    To some, they might seem an unlikely twosome: a former president and former first lady from two different administrations, different political parties, different generations and different upbringings. But George W. Bush tells PEOPLE that he feels a real fondness for Michelle Obama. “She kind of likes my sense of humor. Anybody who likes my sense of humor, I immediately like,” says Bush, in an interview to launch his first art book and new exhibit, Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors, a collection of his paintings of post-9/11 war veterans.

    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.

I wish I could take it back now, you didn't deserve to be defended) Further evidence of your cowardice -- you couldn't be bothered to criticise the terrible obama presidency. But now, now that America’s very democracy is hanging by a thread, you have the nerve to come and out and attack the only person holding it together? FUGWB, Please go crawl under a rock and...

    Former U.S. president George W. Bush said Monday that a free press was 'indispensable to democracy' during his two White House terms – hinting that he disagrees with President Donald Trump's assessment of some reporters as 'the enemy of the people.' 'We need an independent media to hold people like me to account,' Bush said on the 'Today' show. 'I think power can be very addictive, and it can be corrosive, and it's important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power, whether it be here or elsewhere.'
