    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...

    Nor is it only American patriots who should never give up the fight but all who count on the freedom and liberty of the West; all those who know down at heart that “Without America, there is no Free World” Former President George W. Bush—whose lips remained forever sealed during the eight long years that Barack Hussein Obama was uninterruptedly fundamentally transforming America—threw his weight on the no-evidence conspiracy that the Russians stole the election from Hillary Clinton, today. “In remarks at a forum in New York held by the organization that runs his presidential library, Bush said the Russian...

    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.

    Former president George H.W. Bush and his son George W. Bush condemned hatred and bigotry on Wednesday — a day after President Trump incendiary comments further inflamed racial tensions in the US. “America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms,” the ex-presidents said in a statement issued from their vacation home in Kennebunkport, Maine. “America must always reject racial bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred in all forms,” the ex-presidents said in a statement issued from their vacation home in Kennebunkport, Maine. “As we pray for Charlottesville, we are reminded of the fundamental truths recorded by that city’s...

    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.

    Dear GWB You are an idiot for helping a media that tore you down. You are also a coward who couldn’t even be bothered to defend yourself when you were president, (I defended you. 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?

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed former President George W. Bush and the Republicans on Friday for the more than $9 trillion that has been added to the national debt under President Obama's watch. Pelosi argued that under Obama, the annual budget deficit, which contributes to the national debt, has been reduced dramatically, and said that without Obama's work, the national debt would be even higher. She also mostly blamed Bush for not paying for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. "When President Obama stood on the steps on the Capitol eight years from next week, the [budget] deficit was...

    Larry Elder responds to a caller twice in regards to the "United Nations Security Council Resolution 1441" and the Iraq War. Firstly, the caller thinks we have to get permission from the U.N. to begin with. This is false (see: http://tinyurl.com/zjw7v7l). Secondly, Bush did more than his predecessor or Obama did in regards to his activity in the Middle-East with both Congress and the United Nations.

    'Where's the outcry against Obama's wars?' If you were paying attention during the Bush years, you’ll no doubt remember Cindy Sheehan. After losing her son in Iraq, she became the left’s anti-war focal point. Almost overnight, she found herself a staple of the 24-hour news nets and a regular Sunday morning guest. She camped out in front of Bush’s home, marched, spoke wherever possible, and never missed an opportunity to decry “Bush’s imperial war for oil.” Now, in a new op-ed titled “I led the anti-war movement against George W. Bush 11 years ago. Hillary Clinton is hardly better,” Sheehan...

    Former President Bill Clinton and George W. Bush will appear together in Little Rock on Thursday during the graduation of a leadership program launched by the duo in 2014. The graduation of the 61 members from the 2016 Class of the Presidential Leadership Scholars Program will feature a discussion with Bush, Clinton and Tony Blair, the former British Prime Minister. The 42nd and 43rd presidents have a close relationship despite past political tensions. Clinton defeated Bush's father, President George H.W. Bush, in 1992. And in 2000 George W. Bush ran for president promising to bring "honor and dignity to the...

    Since 1992, Republicans have been smarting their loss by claiming that Ross Perot stole enough votes to elect Bill Clinton. Even as much as the loyal opposition seeks to demystify the winner's victory, the Perot-elected-Clinton lie has only served to force the GOP to adopt pro-immigrant pro-big-gov narratives. Perot was more liberal than Slick Willie himself. http://www.ontheissues.org/Ross_Perot.htm He was pro-abortion, pro-homo, and for tax hikes on fossil fuel, the driver of American jobs. Bush I's job approvals in 1992 were as low than Jimmy Carter's in 1980 http://spectator.org/63682_bushioisie-wrong-ross-perot-didnt-cost-ghw-bush-white-house-1992/ http://www.gallup.com/poll/116677/presidential-approval-ratings-gallup-historical-statistics-trends.aspx Of course Bush was 1000x better than Surrender Monkey Dhimmi, but...

    I see where Hillary blamed current voter anger and unrest on the George W. Bush recession, (some things never seem to get old);And Trump warned that we’re headed towards another yuuge recession. Should that actually happen it will be blamed on George W. Bush too, as we’re not allowed to blame anything on American’s First Real Black President, or, by extension, any Democrat. To do so would clearly consist of a racist microaggresion – which in case you haven’t noticed is the new shorthand for the old  “dog whistle.” While the dog whistle proved useful in the past 2 presidential...

    Whatever it portends for Jeb Bush's struggling 2016 White House bid, George W. Bush's return to the campaign trail is bad news for the Republican Party. The former president and former Florida governor headlined a joint rally Monday in South Carolina. The state helped George H.W. Bush finish off Bob Dole in 1988 and set Bush 43 on his path to the nomination after a disappointing loss in New Hampshire in 2000. Jeb is hoping the third time's a charm...

    Donald Trump doesn't like being interrupted. At the Republican debate on Saturday, when Jeb Bush broke into one of Trump's answers, Trump turned around and shushed Bush. This was a continuation of how Trump has long handled Bush, often verbally bullying the Florida governor and characterizing him as weak. But this was also during a particularly tense conversation over eminent domain, in which the government takes over private property for other purposes. Trump defended the practice - specifically, calling it necessary to build roads and other infrastructure.

    Less than three months before the kick-off Iowa caucuses, there is growing anxiety bordering on panic among Republican elites about the dominance and durability of Donald Trump and Ben Carson and widespread bewilderment over how to defeat them. Party leaders and donors fear nominating either man would have negative ramifications for the GOP ticket up and down the ballot, virtually ensuring a Hillary Rodham Clinton presidency and increasing the odds that the Senate falls into Democratic hands.
