    Dr. Sebastian Gorka speaks at the International Special Training Centre's Military Assistance Course, Pfullendorf, Germany, May 14, 2015. (Photo by 7th Army Training Command via Flickr) Former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka fought back last week against former President George W. Bush’s thinly veiled attacks on President Trump in a recent speech, telling EWTN host Raymond Arroyo that while Bush criticized the current climate of “conspiracy theories” and “bigotry,” it was in fact President Obama who “drove the division” in America. “We just came out of eight years in which the White House drove the division,” Gorka said. “They looked...

    All human institutions are essentially a reboot of high school, and within the political scene the Never Trumpers are convinced that they are the cool kids despite being the chess club of American politics. No, they aren't the cool kids. They’re geeks, they haven't won a tournament in years and, more importantly, they're the freaking chess club. In contrast, we normals are just that, the members of the student body who have lives and after-school jobs and girlfriends and who don't care about the dorks padding their resume with student body presidencies or, in this case, jobs at the Eagle Liberty...
  • Bush Assails Culture of Bigotry [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 22 Oct 2017 | John Semmens
    Fresh off eight years of rest during the Obama Administration, former President George W. Bush decried what he called the current "culture of bigotry" in American politics. Based on the content of his remarks, the "bigotry" in question appears to be Donald Trump's characterization of Washington as a "swamp." "When a prominent member of government attacks government in this way it undermines the people's confidence in their rulers," Bush declared. "The loss of confidence creates a very real danger of disobedience toward those in charge. This is the path to anarchy." "Clearly, bringing in an outsider who knows nothing of...

    After crossing the 23,000 line this week, the Dow is up nearly 5,000 points, or about 27 percent, since Election Day. It wouldn’t be there under a President Hillary Clinton or a Jeb Bush. No: Much of the credit has to go to the uncompromisingly pro-business President Trump — the antithesis of what the nation had seen the prior eight years. Nor is it just the stock market: Consumer confidence and economic optimism are up. And the Labor Department reports that claims for unemployment just dropped by 22,000 to 222,000 — the fewest since March 1973. And while, as Charles...

    The president that mainstream journalists loved to hate for eight years is all of a sudden their favorite guy What happened to the president they once reviled? Mainstream media journalists are all of a sudden anxious to give the words of former President George W. Bush a full airing, and to refer to them in the most complimentary way. Bush, wrote The Washington Post, had offered a “blunt assessment” in his speech in New York on Thursday and “warned about threats to American democracy.” NBC News said that Bush had spoken with a "sharper edge," delivering a "clear condemnation of...

    Former White House adviser Steve Bannon says there has not been a more destructive presidency than George W. Bush’s. Bannon delivered a scathing criticism of the former president after Bush this week denounced bigotry in Trump-era American politics, warning that the rise of “nativism,” isolationism and conspiracy theories have clouded the nation’s true identity. Bannon told a capacity crowd at a California Republican convention in Anaheim that Bush “embarrassed himself.” In his remarks in New York, Bush warned of a nation in which discourse has been degraded by “casual cruelty,” where bigotry is emboldened. Bannon says Bush has no idea...

    Former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush have voiced concern about the current political climate in the US, in comments seen as a veiled rebuke of Donald Trump's leadership.

    The two most recent presidents on Thursday blasted the state of US politics in events that were separated by less than 20 miles. First, it was former President George W. Bush. The most recent former Republican president lambasted a political culture that caused "bigotry" to seem "emboldened." The public comments were Bush's most pointed since President Donald Trump took office in January. "In recent decades, public confidence in our institutions has declined," the 43rd president said at an event in New York hosted by his namesake institute. "Our governing class has often been paralyzed in the face of obvious...

    President George W. Bush on Thursday issued a thinly veiled warning about the state of American democracy under the current president, arguing that "bigotry seems emboldened" and politics is "more vulnerable" to conspiracy theories. Speaking at the George W. Bush Institute's "The Spirit of Liberty: At Home, in the World," a national forum in New York City, the former president warned that the trend in Western countries of moving away from democratic confidence and global engagement is seeping into American culture. Parts of Europe, Bush said, have developed an "identity crisis" as a result of economic stagnation, youth unemployment and...

    A vice president is never more important than at the instant of being chosen, because the choice tells you so much about the person who does the picking. When the doors are closed, George W. Bush doesn't have to listen to advice or stroke Republican egos; he can say what he pleases. John McCain? asked a friend. Gimme a break, said Bush. Ohio Congressman John Kasich, Bush argued, isn't ready for the job. Pro-choice Pennsylvanian Tom Ridge might cost him too many pro-life votes in states where a point or two will make the difference. And it has been clear...

    George W. Bush hinted Thursday at his dissatisfaction with Donald Trump, complaining in a New York City speech that 'bullying and prejudice' has become a caustic norm in American public life. At an event hosted by the George W. Bush Institute, the 43rd U.S. president rattled off a thinly veiled litany of complaints about the current commander-in-chief, focusing on both his tone and his isolationist policy choices.

    Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that "bigotry seems emboldened" in the modern U.S. He also warned that the U.S. needs to accept "globalization" and reject "white supremacy." He criticized the “governing class” without specifically mentioning President Trump. "Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts" in recent years, he observed during a speech for the George W. Bush Institute. "Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seem more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication."

    Where do all those Jeb!-festooned tees, cufflinks, and yard signs go when the game is lost? To the Girl Scouts, obviously. Last week, Hammerstone, a company that sells tchotchkes and apparel—you know, like golf shirts festooned with corporate logos—sent out a rather curious email. Hammerstone, which sometimes works with political campaigns, wrote to announce it had on hand a heft of surplus gear from the presidential campaigns of Jeb(!) Bush and Marco Rubio. The items for sale, the email noted, included such indispensables as Criquet polo shirts, cufflinks, challenge coins, and drinkware, all emblazoned with the logos of two long-defunct...

    Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson, a former senior aide to President George W. Bush, used his Friday op-ed to warn establishment Republicans that “the time for panic and decision is upon us.” Gerson urges Republicans to join Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) in publicly raising two questions: “Is Trump psychologically and morally equipped to be president? And could his unfitness cause permanent damage to the country?” If the reports are true that the majority of Senate Republicans agree with Corker’s comment that Trump could cause “World War III,” then Gerson exhorts them to publicly act on their convictions. Though Gerson does not...

On Thursday, Trump cryptically suggested that a meeting with senior military leaders was "the calm before the storm.

    As the Democrats and media left rage about the NRA and Republicans over Las Vegas, these are the REAL facts: 1. The bump stock was outlawed under President Bush in 2005. 2. The Obama Administration reversed this decision legalizing bump stocks in 2010. 3. There was NO lobbying effort by the NRA, Republicans or conservatives for legalizing bump stocks. This was team Obama's decision.

    The Second Battle of the Alamo A second Texas Revolution is currently brewing in the Lone Star State. This all comes as a result of a seemingly laudable plan promoted to and passed by the state’s legislature some four years ago. The plan involved the rebuilding and improvement of the state’s most iconic shrine—the Alamo. The plan as promoted and approved would have rebuilt certain historic structures present at the time of the 1836 battle, as well as give visitors there a better and more complete understanding of the physical environment existing at the time of the conflict. Consequent to...
