    Since July of 2008, the chattering classes of America have been uneasy about Barack Obama’s proposal for a civilian national security force “as well-funded as the U.S. military”. (video). The civilian national security force was already in place long before last July’s public proposal. Its general doesn’t wear army fatigues but sleeveless dresses. The General of this national security force is not out in the field in Iraq or Afghanistan, but running the troops from the White House. Meet First Lady Michelle Obama, General of Public Allies New Leadership for New Times. Public Allies, modeled after Saul Alinsky’s “Peoples Organizations”,...

    Bush — who defeated McCain in the 2000 Republican presidential primary — said that the Arizona senator “detested the abuse of power and could not abide bigots and swaggering despots.” “He respected the dignity inherent in every life, a dignity that does not stop at borders and cannot be erased by dictators,” Bush continued. “John’s voice will always come as a whisper over our shoulder: ‘We’re better than this, America is better than this’.” Watch above, via CNN.

    I was just on a blog post today about the death of John McCain and there was a discussion about his integrity compared to his opponents. And one of the people he was compared to was his Republican primary opponent of 2000 George Bush. This comment caught my eye; "In 2000 George Bush and John McCain were competing in the South Carolina Republican primary. Bush chose to spread rumours that McCain had fathered a black child out of wedlock, and McCain's adopted Bangladeshi daughter was used as the proof. Bush won the closely contested primary. Bush was never a decent...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is appealing to former President George W. Bush in an escalating fight over documents tied to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Schumer, in a letter to be released on Friday, is asking for Bush's help with a "time-sensitive request"—to publicly release all paperwork from Kavanaugh's service in the Bush White House, where he worked as a legal counsel and staff secretary. "My purpose ... is to ask you to authorize that the complete record of Judge Kavanaugh's service in the White House be made public so all Americans can be informed about this nomination...

    Former President George W. Bush says he’s “disturbed” by the immigration debate occurring under President Trump, where after decades, Americans are speaking out against mass immigration to the United States. During a panel discussion alongside former President Bill Clinton, Bush said the current immigration debate “doesn’t recognize” the “valuable contributions” of foreign nationals. “I’m disturbed by the debate that’s taking place because I think it undermines the goodness of America,” Bush said. “I think it doesn’t recognize the valuable contributions that immigrants make to our society. And it obscures the fact — the rhetoric does — that the system is...

    Former President George W. Bush was supportive of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program Thursday, as he told an audience at a summit in Abu Dhabi that the U.S. needs to “welcome” them. Beyond that, he said at the summit hosted by the Milken Institute, a California-based economic think tank, that Americans should be thanking the illegal immigrants for doing jobs they refuse to do. "Americans don’t want to pick cotton at 105 degrees, but there are people who want put food on their family’s tables and are willing to do that,” he said, according to The Associated...

    President Trump boasted Friday that he fulfilled a campaign promise by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital — mocking his three predecessors with clips showing them only voicing support for the move. “I fulfilled my campaign promise – others didn’t!” Trump tweeted early Friday. In the montage, Bill Clinton is seen in 1992 saying: “Jerusalem is still the capital of Israel and must remain an undivided city accessible to all.” George W. Bush, who is seen in 2000, says: “As soon as I take office, I will move the United States ambassador to the city Israel has chosen as its capital.”...

    WASHINGTON — President Trump on Monday officially designated North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism, returning the rogue nation to a list from which it had been removed during the George W. Bush administration. North Korea had been removed from the list under the George W. Bush administration in an attempt to salvage negotiations for a nuclear deal. The president made the announcement at the White House on Monday morning. North Korea will join Sudan, Syria and Iran as countries that the State Department identifies as ones that have “repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism.” Administration officials...

    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...

    President Donald Trump's recent comments are making Republican strategist Ron Christie nervous – and he told CNBC he's probably not the only one. On Thursday, Trump cryptically suggested that a meeting with senior military leaders was "the calm before the storm. "It gives our allies and adversaries pause for reflection to say, 'What is the United States about to do?'" said Christie, former special assistant to President George W. Bush.

    Many of us remember the “Fake but Accurate” assertion made by Dan Rather in response to the millions of Americans who questioned the CBS claim that George Bush had run away from his duty to serve in Vietnam. In this October Surprise of 2004, it didn’t matter to Rather that the documents he put forward to accuse the president of cowardice were proven to be fraudulent. For according to the CBS talking head, it was simply a fact that George Bush had shirked his responsibility to serve, evidence to the contrary be damned. The claim, Rather argued, was accurate, even...

    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...

    Didn't think he was the "true elected president". Unprecedented, huh? Not only was it John Lewis who picked the fight with Donald Trump - regardless of what you keep hearing to the contrary - but he pulled a fast one on you with the claim that he’s never done it before. First time Lewis has ever missed an inauguration since he was elected to Congress in 1986, is that right? Totally unprecedented, and all because of the unique awfulness of Donald Trump, yes?
