    He's mad .. and rightfully so. Without any notice, his Sat. radio address was televised live. He's putting Congress and the press on notice that he's got the authority to do what he's done to protect US .. that Congress was notified at least a dozen times about these NSA oversights .. and that the press leaks and any such security leaks are illegal and are aiding and abetting the enemy.

    Remember when then-Texas Governor George W. Bush was running for president and a Boston local television gotcha journalist hit him with a surprise quiz asking him in rapid succession to name the leaders of Chechnya, Taiwan, India and Pakistan? The Associated Press promptly alerted the nation to the news that Bush “scored only 25 percent” on the quiz. The AP story implied this was somehow an important test of a presidential candidate’s qualifications and quoted an Al Gore aide mocking Bush’s college academic record while claiming that Gore knew all the answers. “Bush Fails Quiz on Foreign Affairs,” screamed...

    Liberals really ought to thank the heavens above for George W. Bush, he comes in so handy for them. Whenever anything goes wrong in their hermetically-sealed reality, as everything connected to them eventually does, their Pavlovian response is to misdirect attention toward Bush. Latest example -- rollout of the misnomer of a track wreck known as the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, which became law three years ago without a single Republican vote on the basis of one of the most audacious lies repeated ad nauseum by an American politician -- if you like your health plan, you can keep...

According to Obama and the official recession agency out there... the recession ended in 2009, and that's when the recovery began. But -- as you know and I know -- there hasn't been a recovery, but in official Washington vernacular the recovery from the Bush recession began in June of 2009. This is a powerful statistic.

    TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone XL pipeline, which would carry oil from landlocked Alberta to the U.S. Gulf Coast, is a “no-brainer” that would create jobs and bolster the economy, former President George W. Bush said on Tuesday. The $7.6 billion Keystone XL line would generate private-sector employment and government revenue, he said at an American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers conference in San Diego. The U.S. government’s budget deficit is unsustainable and must be reduced by supporting industry, Bush said. “The clear goal ought to be how to get the private sector to grow,” said Bush, who spoke during a luncheon at...

But the former commander-in-chief tells The Associated Press there's one aspect of his presidency he still misses: interaction with U.S. troops. And Bush, who sent them to wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, says that despite his desire to remain largely out of the public eye, he wants to make sure veterans and military members know they still have his support.

    As lefties gloat over the political implications of Osama bin Laden’s demise, and the media ramp up an “Obama bounce” meme, conservatives should politely but persistently shift the conversation from politics to policy. In my latest column for Townhall, I draw on a number of fascinating news accounts elucidating how the our military and intelligence community finally nailed bin Laden. US officials describe a “mosaic” of intelligence that ultimately led a team of Navy SEALs to a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan — suggesting that it took many years and myriad sources to pinpoint bin Laden’s precise location. As we now...

When Bush said this a year ago, the howls from the left weren't as loud as usual. And why would they be? The "angry left," as Bush called it -- and felt it more acutely than anyone bestriding the planet -- didn't care much anymore. Waterb oarding had been a tool for the left's purposes: to demonize and defeat Bush. It had usefulness just as Iraq once had. It had gotten the...

    I'm a nonpartisan pollster, but I'm also a columnist with a strong Republican background. So let me be clear right from the start: I believe President Barack Obama and his national security team performed admirably in the near-flawless effort to capture and kill Osama bin Laden. It's disingenuous and just plain silly for anyone to say otherwise just because the president is a Democrat or because they disagree with his other policies. The snuffing out of the world's top terrorist demonstrated the power and determination of America and its leaders. A poll we conducted just after the announcement of bin...

    Osama bin Laden was (a) killed by a unit overseen by Dick Cheney's "executive assassination ring," (b) sent into action based on intel derived from now-outlawed "enhanced interrogation techniques" (c) used on detainees captured during Bush's term, who were (d) held in now-outlawed "secret prisons" or Gitmo. President Obama's deputy national security advisor, John Brennan, confirmed that the death of bin Laden resulted from "a mosaic (of intelligence) appearing over time and by ... people who have been following bin Laden for many, many years." This explains why 81% of Republicans give George W. Bush "at least some of the...

The nagging pain that this radical Islamic assassin had never received American justice was finally relieved. Crowds gathered in front of the White House and at Ground Zero to chant joyously, "USA! USA!" But for most, it wasn't jubilation. It was the silent fist pump and a silent prayer of thanksgiving...

By comparison, the White House has released statements recognizing the observance of major Muslim holidays and released statements in 2010 on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha. The White House also failed to release a statement marking Good Friday. However, they did release an eight-paragraph statement heralding Earth Day. Likewise, the president's weekend address mentioned neither Good Friday or Easter. However, the First Family did attend an Easter Sunday worship service at a Baptist church and last week, the president...

A dense president born into old establishment wealth had conned the American people and we were trapped into implacable problems, both foreign and domestic. These problems included a bad war that the president had lied us into, a good war that he had ignored, a deficit that was out of control, a prison that violated human rights, and a relationship between big business and big government that had become too cozy.

    President Obama quietly signed an executive order on Monday instituting a system for indefinitely holding terrorist detainees at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay (Gitmo), Cuba. The administration also announced that terrorist trials by military commission would recommence. This is a win for U.S. security, but the country has paid a heavy price for Mr. Obama’s on-the-job training in counterterrorism. The low-key announcements stand in marked contrast with the bombast with which Mr. Obama approached this issue just a few years ago. During the 2008 presidential campaign, then-Sen. Barack Obama harshly criticized President George W. Bush’s detainee policies. When...

    Voices around the world, from Europe to America to Libya, are calling for U.S. intervention to help bring down Moammar Gadhafi. Yet for bringing down Saddam Hussein, the U.S. has been denounced variously for aggression, deception, arrogance and imperialism. A strange moral inversion, considering that Saddam's evil was an order of magnitude beyond Gadhafi's. Gadhafi is a capricious killer; Saddam was systematic. Gadhafi was too unstable and crazy to begin to match the Baathist apparatus: a comprehensive national system of terror, torture and mass murder, gassing entire villages to create what author Kanan Makiya called a "Republic of Fear."

Senior administration officials and Pentagon planners, as they discuss sanctions and a possible no-fly zone to neutralize the Libyan air force, say that the 2003 deal removed Colonel Qaddafi’s biggest trump card: the threat of using a nuclear weapon, or even just selling nuclear material or technology, if he believed it was the only way to save his 42-year rule. While Colonel Qaddafi retains a...

Thus, he delivered his infamous "Chicken Kiev" speech urging the Ukraine not to secede. Ukrainians, of course, rejected Bush's counsel and did just that, by declaring their independence three weeks later. Bush also refused to encourage the Chinese student demonstrators in Tiananmen Square -- even though these student demonstrators had built a replica of the Statue of Liberty and were quoting Jefferson, our Declaration of Independence,...

    Stick a fork in him. George W. Bush is done with politics. The ex-President told C-SPAN he has no plans to raise cash, stump for Republican candidates and even appear on television.

    Chris Matthews Blames Egypt Riots on George W. Bush and Iraq War By Noel Sheppard Created 01/29/2011 - 12:17pm By Noel Sheppard | January 29, 2011 | 12:17 Noel Sheppard's picture It's a metaphysical certitude that whenever anything happens in the Middle East, the media will quickly blame former President George W. Bush and the war in Iraq. Not missing the opportunity to do so, Chris Matthews began the 5PM installment of "Hardball" Friday connecting the riots in Egypt to a man that has been out of office for two years (video follows with transcript and commentary): CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST:...

    "The life of the Cuban revolution is in the balance! We rectify or we sink!" (Raul Castro Dec. 18, 2010) “Cuba will be bankrupt in 2011.” (Italian ambassador to Cuba, Wikileaks Cable) “Here I come to save the day!” (U.S. President Barack Obama, Jan. 14th 2011) But unlike Andy Kaufman on his first Saturday Night Live skit, President Obama hoped to keep his Castro-rescue quiet. He waited till after the November elections (Florida Democrats could be besmirched by a Democratic bail-out of Castro) to sign the executive order, then announced it on a Friday afternoon, slowest news period of the...

    Cheney: Obama has learned that Bush policies were right By Daniel Strauss - 01/17/11 05:18 PM ET President Obama has “learned from experience” that some of the Bush administration’s decisions on terrorism issues were necessary, according to former Vice President Dick Cheney. In his first interview since undergoing major heart surgery last July, Cheney said he thinks Obama has been forced to rethink some of his national security positions now that he sits in the Oval Office. "I think he's learned that what we did was far more appropriate than he ever gave us credit for while he was a...

    On Sunday, the southern Sudanese began voting on a referendum to secede from the Republic of Sudan and establish their own sovereign nation. By all accounts, they will soon secede from the Arab, Islamic country and form an independent African, Christian and animist state. The consequences of their actions will reverberate around the world. This week’s referendum takes place in accordance with the US-brokered Comprehensive Peace Treaty between the Khartoum government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement signed on January 9, 2005. The CPT officially ended the second Sudanese Civil War that began in 1983. The South Sudanese referendum will...

    In the New York Times story today that details information on the Stuxnet computer worm that ended up destroying 984 Iranian unranium centrifuges, an interesting “item” pops out. Not immediately, not in the New York Times. But about half way through the story we find out that President Bush got the Stuxnet started in 2008 with Israel. He even managed to get the cooperation of Germany, Britain and the Saudis. Not bad for someone the world supposedly hated. Then, near the end of the piece, we find out that we got a lot of material from Libya after it gave...
  • Palin derangement syndrome now eclipses Bush derangement syndrome

    I personally never thought it would happen. I mean the Left HATES and I mean HATES President Bush. I mean he had the audacity to win an election after all and he was not even a Conservative, but Sarah Palin has now rocketed to that coveted position. I am not going to spend a lot of time digging into the past but suffice it to say it has a lot of relevance. One such example I remember is the clothes “SCANDAL”. You might recall the McCain campaign bought thousands of dollars worth of clothes for Sarah because they didn’t like...
  • "Decision Points" abridged CD by Random House Audio - WMP pulls fake album cover art

    As a Christmas present I received a copy of Decision Points, abridged CD audio by Random House Audio. When I placed Disc 1 into my laptop disc drive, Windows Media Player attempts to pull the cover art from the internet. Apparently someone is trying to sell some music. Very poor taste nonetheless. Instead of viewing the book cover, I see this: A quick Google search leads me to DJ Flash's MySpace page: And to his "record label" . . .
