    The recent utterly unsurprising utter capitulation by the Fredocons to the SJW/tech/media campaign to deplatform and silence any right-wing voice who is not trying to sell you a cruise cabin is a symptom of a bigger problem. It’s not a symptom of Trump Derangement Syndrome, though Trump has utterly deranged these pointy-headed geeks. It is a symptom of Conservative, Inc.’s contempt for you.The dethroned conservagimps are angry with you. Donald Trump is not really the issue. He’s just a convenient target for those these establishment sissies. They truly despise you.You.They hate you because you refuse to honor and respect them, to...
  • Communist China Lobby Buys U.S. Influence With Clintons, Bushes

    The most murderous dictatorship in all of human history is assembling a massive battery of U.S. lobbyists and propagandists in and around Washington, D.C., sparking growing concerns across the political spectrum about its intentions and the effect this lobbying Leviathan will have on the federal government. That dictatorship, of course, is the Communist Party regime enslaving mainland China. And among the growing roster of political hacks on its payroll are top former officials including ex-House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner, who played a key role in transferring America's productive capacity to Communist China in the late 1990s. Unsurprisingly, the Clintons...

    For two decades, Joseph James Pappas has held a grudge against the Houston cardiologist who performed the surgery that left his mother dead on the operating table, police say. Pappas, 62, planned Dr. Mark Hausknecht's killing-- apparently over his mother's death -- and last month followed the doctor as he rode his bicycle to work at Houston Methodist Hospital, according to authorities. Both men were on their bikes on July 20 when Pappas rode past Hausknecht before turning around and fatally shooting him, police said. The prominent surgeon and former cardiologist for President George H.W. Bush was found near a...
  • Trump's high-octane growth wows 'low-energy' Jeb: 'Credit to @POTUS's economic policies'

    Former Florida governor Jeb Bush offered a rhetorical hat tip to one-time rival President Trump on Friday for the nation’s surging economy. The man deemed “low-energy Jeb” on the 2016 campaign trail by Mr. Trump took to Twitter to marvel at America’s high-octane economic growth — 4.1 percent in the second quarter. “Today’s news confirms that 4% growth isn’t just aspirational, it’s achievable through policies that unleash the power of the market,” Mr. Bush wrote. “Credit to @POTUS’s economic policies. To sustain this growth, we must pursue a free trade agenda and move to a merit-based immigration system.” Mr. Bush...

    George H.W. Bush offered condolences on Friday after a cardiologist who previously treated the former president was killed in a drive-by shooting. Bush, 94, issued a statement through his spokesman on Twitter after authorities said Dr. Mark Hausknecht was shot and killed by a fellow cyclist while riding near the Texas Children's Pavilion for Women in downtown Houston. "Mark was a fantastic cardiologist and a good man," Bush said in the statement. "I will always be grateful for his exceptional, compassionate care. His family is in our prayers." Bush spokesman Jim McGrath added that the nation's 41st president was "deeply...

    A cardiologist who once treated former President George H.W. Bush was gunned down Friday morning while riding his bicycle through Houston’s Texas Medical Center. *snip* Hausknecht was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. Finner said he was hit at least once. The area where the shooting took place is part of a 1,345-acre complex of hospitals and medical institutions, including the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and is teeming with traffic and pedestrians during the day. Hausknecht was going to work at Houston Methodist Hospital when he was shot, the hospital's CEO said in...

    A Clinton Foundation grant went to the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund — but the latter group had only an office address in Washington, D.C. So what happened to the money? Here’s a question for which Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, special counsel Robert Mueller, and former FBI Director James Comey may well know the answer to — but aren’t likely to want to talk about in public, under oath: Why did the Clinton Foundation send a $37 million grant for the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund in 2010 to a Baltimore post office box when the CBHF told federal tax authorities that...

    Putin met the last four US presidents since he took office in the 1990s. The two leaders met again in June 2000 in Moscow after Putin became president of Russia and Clinton was in his final year in office. After Bush was sworn into office in January 2001, the two leaders met for the first time in June for a summit in Slovenia. Putin met with the recently sworn-in Obama for the first time in July 2009 in Moscow. Obama reportedly emerged from the meeting feeling confident and optimistic in resetting relations with Putin. "We think there's an excellent opportunity...

    Vladimir Putin, wannabe cowboy and newly minted close buddy of President Bush, eagerly wanted to ride a horse in Texas, so he may have been disappointed to learn that Bush zips around his ranch in a Ford pickup. That's what was awaiting the Putins as they landed at the Bush ranch outside Waco in midafternoon. The Bushes, in ranch gear and carrying umbrellas to shield their guests from the rain, met the casually attired Putins when they arrived by helicopter for an overnight and barbecue at the Bush home. "The president brought the rain, for which we're always grateful in...

    Jeb Bush blasted the Trump administration on Wednesday for indicating it's considering an offer from Russian President Vladimir Putin to observe questioning of indicted Russians in exchange for allowing Russian authorities to question American citizens. "Not dismissing this absurd request out of hand is an extraordinary sign of weakness by an American president," Bush tweeted. At a joint press conference in Finland, Putin said he’d be willing to allow U.S. law enforcement to travel to Russia and observe the questioning of suspects implicated in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. In exchange, Putin said he’d want access to U.S. citizens for...

    MSNBC’s “AM Joy” host Joy Reid lamented Sunday how the media viewed former President George W. Bush and Sarah Palin as authentic and enchanting because of their speech while also “disparaging” former President Barack Obama for “being almost too erudite and articulate.” “There is a thing in Republican Party politics where not being erudite as a speaker is seen as a virtue,” said Reid. “It was with George W. Bush, the idea that he’s plain-spoken, and so, when he would mangle the language — even the media would read that as authentic and great, right? He would make up words...

    MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski comment on President Trump mocking John McCain and George H.W. Bush to the delight of crowds at his rallies: JOE: Mika, we can talk about Donald Trump. We have. But, again, at what point is there decency in the crowd where people stop cheering when he mocks a man who has brain cancer and who is -- again, fighting for his life? A losing struggle for his life. Or George H.W. Bush. A man who fought in World War II. Was shot down by the Japanese, served America overseas as ambassador...

    Facebook’s new algorithms for spotting political advertisements are inadvertently blocking ads for businesses that share the same names as famous politicians.Advertisers told Bloomberg that their ads mentioning the word “bush” have been flagged as political content, even if they are completely unrelated to politics. The company’s filters took down an ad from a Walmart in Beeville, Texas, advertising a sale on cans of Bush’s Beans. In another instance, Facebook took down an ad from a lawn-mowing service in South Dakota advertising bush trimming. Under Facebook's new rules for political ads, the ads are taken down until advertisers can verify themselves....

    American Spectator ^ | June 21, 2018 | by David Catron
    Laura Bush needs a remedial course in history and immigration policy. The Bush family has a famously adversarial relationship with English. It became clear this week that at least one of them is also illiterate where U.S. history and immigration policy are concerned. This was demonstrated when former First Lady Laura Bush took to the pages of the Washington Post to denounce President Trump for enforcing a statute signed into law by her own husband, George W. Bush. Even worse, she compared the HHS facilities where the children of illegal immigrants are briefly housed to the infamous internment camps where...

    Donald Trump Jr. has canceled a fundraiser he was scheduled to hold for Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush after multiple members of the Bush family levied harsh criticism at President Donald Trump’s administration for its enforcement of immigration laws. The barrage began earlier this week when former First Lady Laura Bush (the wife of former president and Texas governor George W. Bush and George P. Bush’s aunt) wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post in which she called Trump’s handling of illegal immigration “immoral,” a narrative pushed by national Democrats and, in Texas, retiring Texas House Speaker Joe Straus....

    Press Secretary Sarah Sanders fired both barrels at former first lady Laura Bush during Monday’s White House press briefing. Sanders was asked about an op-ed Bush wrote for the far-left Washington Post, where she compared the necessary and moral separation of migrant children from their illegal alien parents to the Japanese American internment camps built by Democrat president and icon Franklin Roosevelt. Sanders held nothing back in pointing out Bush’s hypocrisy. And, frankly, this law was actually signed into effect in 2008 under her husband’s leadership, not under this administration,” she added. “We’re not the one’s responsible for creating this...

    Many readers likely are wondering why Laura Bush put her name on an op-ed condemning President Trump for enforcing a border protection law that her husband signed into law. The short answer is she is all the Democrats have left Their leadership is too tainted by scandal or incompetence (and in the case of Hillary, both) to persuade anyone. Bill is a joke with his pants around his ankles. Obama's legacy quickly shrank like a cheap T-shirt in its first wash. Not one of their 2020 candidates had sense enough to give President Trump a sportsmanlike chance, which renders their...
