    Watch the video of the interview. On "The O'Reilly Factor tonight, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz reacted to reports that former President George W. Bush doesn't like him. At a closed door fundraiser for his brother Jeb Bush Sunday, Bush said he does "not like that guy," referring to Cruz, according to reports. Cruz told Bill O'Reilly that he likes and respects President Bush, and he isn't surprised that Bush is supporting his brother's campaign. "He's attacking the candidates that they see as a threat to that campaign," Cruz suggested. Cruz added that he met his wife while working for...

    Tries to rescue brother's campaign by trash-talking Ted Cruz We haven’t heard much from President George W. Bush during the past seven years. After leaving office with approval numbers in the high 20s, he made a conscious decision to keep a respectful distance from Washington, to refrain from becoming the Pundit-in-Chief criticizing his successor’s every move. “He deserves my silence,” Bush said of the newly elected Barack Obama. “I think it is essential that he be helped in office.” Indeed, when the left was going wild in Obama’s first term, all the Bushes went mum. George W. was suddenly applauded...

    Since leaving office, former President George W. Bush has made a point of not being critical of Obama—a fact he confirmed in an interview on FOX News’ “Hannity” program—because he felt to do so would undermine the office of the presidency.“I don’t think it’s good for the country to have a former president undermine a current president; I think it’s bad for the presidency for that matter.”“Secondly, I really have had all the fame I want. I really don’t long for publicity, and the truth of the matter is in order for me to generate publicity … I’d have to...
  • Jeb: I Have ‘Grave Doubts’ About Trump Having Nuclear Codes

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Republican presidential candidate former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said he has “grave doubts,” about the possibility of his opponent Donald Trump being in charge of the nation’s nuclear codes because “it looks as though he’s an actor playing the role of a candidate for president not boning up on the issues.” In defending his brother, former President George W. Bush, on his response to 9/11 from Trumps recent criticisms, Bush said, “My brother responded to a crisis and did it as you would hope a president would do. He kept us safe and...
  • Smoking gun emails reveal Blair's 'deal in blood' with George Bush over Iraq (tr)

    Daily Mail ^ | 19:49 EST, 17 October 2015 | Glen Owen and William Lowther
    A bombshell White House memo has revealed for the first time details of the ‘deal in blood’ forged by Tony Blair and George Bush over the Iraq War. The sensational leak shows that Blair had given an unqualified pledge to sign up to the conflict a year before the invasion started. It flies in the face of the Prime Minister’s public claims at the time that he was seeking a diplomatic solution to the crisis. He told voters: ‘We’re not proposing military action’ – in direct contrast to what the secret email now reveals.

  • Illegal? Obama Wants to Use Bush's 2001 War Authorization to Justify Attacks on ISIS

    09/12/2014 8:05:46 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 41 replies ^ | September 12, 2014 | Katie Pavlich
    In his address to the nation Wednesday night about how the United States is going to handle the growing ISIS threat, President Obama announced new airstrikes in Syria and called on Congress to give "input," but didn't ask for their authorization. Why? Apparently President Obama thinks he can use the authorization given to President George W. Bush in 2001 to go after al Qaeda. Legally, that move isn't panning out. Al Eli Lake over at the Daily Beast writes, Obama's latest war is probably illegal: Obama’s using the law that authorized attacks against al Qaeda to justify his new fight in...

    Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that he had a moment of clarity in a Florida elementary school classroom on Sept. 11, 2001, when his chief of staff told him the second World Trade Center tower had been struck by a jetliner and the U.S. was under attack. A young girl was reading aloud at the time, Bush recalled during a paid appearance at a college scholarship luncheon, an event that coincided with the 13th anniversary of the terrorist attacks. He said he realized that morning that his job was to protect the girl, her family and their community....

    CBS News ^ | 07/31/2014
    The George Washington Bridge spanning New York and New Jersey is getting a fence to help curb suicides as the number of deaths there approaches record levels. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says there have been 13 suicides and 40 rescues on the span so far this year. There were 16 deaths for all of 2013. Plans call for erecting a 9-foot fence to replace the current railing to make jumping from the bridge difficult. Chief structural engineer Bernie Yostpile tells The Record newspaper that the project will cost $37 million to $47 million and will...
  • Robert Redford to Play Dan Rather in 'Truth'

    Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather's producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries. - See more at:

    The following is mostly satire. President Obama disclosed on Friday that he plans to rein in the NSA’s spying. His critics immediately said that he can’t be trusted to which the White House responded, “hey, did we lie to you about keeping your health care plan and your doctor or about how that youtube video provoked the killing of our guys in Benghazi?” No, we didn’t. We only told the least amount of truth!” Meanwhile, terrorists around the world celebrated this news because it signaled that the unabated surveillance of all Americans, rather than profiling them, was more likely to...

    The following is mostly satire. This week, the FBI dropped all criminal investigations related to the IRS targeting of conservative groups; they said that under direction of Attorney General Eric Holder, they’ll be off to help OJ find the real killers. Resources are also needed, they say, in handing out weapons to Mexican drug cartels; the FBI is apparently worried that if they are not fast, the cartels will be furious. Gov. Chris Christie, at another press conference to discuss the GWB scandal, expressed dismay that the media would be concerned about the size of things, he reportedly said, “look,...

    Emails released today revealed two political bombshells: Gov. Chris Christie's office had advance knowledge of the traffic nightmare at the George Washington Bridge that crippled Fort Lee in September. And his top officials at the Port Authority did indeed close the lanes as a form of retribution against the town's mayor. "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee," Christie's deputy chief of staff wrote to David Wildstein, a top Christie appointee at the Port Authority. Wildstein answered, "Got it." Which confirms what critics have suspected all along: This was an outrageous misuse of public resources, a reckless endangerment of...
