I Traveled To See George H.W. Bush
Honored At The US Capitol–I Was
Stunned By The Crowds

Daily Caller, by Benny Johnson

WASHINGTON — It was bitterly cold and dark on Capitol Hill as I walked the brick sidewalks leading to the U.S. Capitol. I was heading to pay my respects to President George H.W. Bush, who was lying in state. I have covered major funerals in Washington and seen my fair share of grandiose state events. However, nothing prepared me for what I saw as I approached the Capitol that night. The process for a president to lie in state is standardized. There is an official arrival ceremony, followed by remarks from gathered political leaders. Family, friends and members of the

I expected HW to parachute into the funeral gathering. Nevertheless, HW was a WWII veteran, and earned respect. He was also a good President, and should have been re-elected to a second term. The nation would have been much better served. Perot divided the vote, knew he couldn´t win, and knew he was delivering the election to Clinton. The Democrats can always stoop lower.

I wonder what goes through the Clinton´s minds when they attend such an event. Bush was a good and decent man. Obviously loved by his family. Respected by world leaders, and Americans everywhere across the United States. I have images of women lining up to view Clinton´s body with a hat pin in their hands. Hoping to jab it into his thigh to make sure he is really dead. What positive thing could you say about such a person as Clinton that would not be a bold faced lie? I was touched by the ceremonies honoring Mr. Bush. I hope Megan McCain watched it and realizes what a disservice she did to her father´s memory turning his funeral into a political circus.

A beautiful article. I believe most of those people standing in the cold for hours were the people who never believed the media when they were trashing President Bush.

I want to believe that Americans are thirsting to feel and live the way things used to be. Once it was perfectly normal to show respect, to be openly patriotic, and to raise your children to love our country. This week´s beautiful journey in the Way Back Machine was just plain wonderful.

And yet I imagine that a good percent of them either voted for Clinton or stayed home when 41 was seeking a second term.

Benny, HW was the Big Cahuna with the DC Moneychangers. It definitely wasn´t his personality or charm that brought them all out.

Lest we not forget his son´s foray into ports. It takes on a whole different complexion when you follow George Webb, drugs-for-weapons and established rat lines.

The Dubai Ports World controversy began in February 2006 and rose to prominence as a national security debate in the United States.At issue was the sale of port management businesses in six major U.S. seaports to a company based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and whether such a sale would compromise port security.

#2, you could write almost the same thing about 0bama except for the women with hat pins. Who will eulogize 0bama? JayZ, Sharpton, Farrakhan and Wright?

The actual budget appropriations bill is seven compartments consisting of more than 5,000 pages. However, here is the 29 page summary outlining the key elements as negotiated by congress. WARNING: This is a bad deal, but it reflects the UniParty reality within congress. Take a deep breath; don’t lash out. Remember, there are very few MAGA minded representatives. This was negotiated by two wings of the same corporate bird and both want open borders.

Rodgers said that when he told Menendez he worked for the Daily Caller, the Democrat responded by saying he would not answer any questions. An intern who was with Rodgers asked a follow-up question, and tensions apparently rose. (Tweet) The

New Jersey´s five Roman Catholic dioceses listed more than 180 priests Wednesday who have been credibly accused of sexually abusing minors over a span of several decades, joining more than two dozen other states that have named suspected abusers in the wake of a landmark grand jury report in Pennsylvania last year. The lists released Wednesday identified priests and deacons who served in the dioceses of Camden, Trenton, Metuchen and Paterson and the archdiocese of Newark. Many priests on the lists are dead, and others have been removed from ministry. Cardinal Joseph Tobin, the archbishop of Newark, which listed 63

Rep. Gwen Moore (D., Wis.) summed up her excitement about Americans´ improving economic wellbeing in the first two years of the Trump administration by saying "blah, blah, blah" Wednesday. Moore, an eight-term congresswoman, reacted to widespread prosperity across demographic lines by attempting to discredit them as short-term during a House Ways and Means Committee hearing. Moore referrred to Republican Rep. Darin LaHood´s statistics that show the economic situation is improving for African Americans, Hispanics, and the country as a whole, but she wasn´t as enthusiastic about those numbers.

WASHINGTON — The Democratic Party´s first two presidential debates will have two stages for a total of up to 16 participants. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez disclosed the new details Wednesday night at a party fundraiser in Washington ahead of the DNC´s winter meeting. "Two stages, eight and eight," Perez said, repeating his promise for a fair process. It was the first time the chairman had confirmed how many slots would be available for the growing 2020 field that already includes a gaggle of senators and some House members and could soon comprise governors and heavyweights like former Vice President

Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of one of the nation’s largest churches and a prominent evangelical supporter of President Donald Trump, criticized so-called “Never Trump” evangelicals as “spineless morons” who “cannot admit that they were wrong.” “Let me say this as charitably as I can,” the First Baptist Dallas pastor said during a Wednesday appearance on “The Todd Starnes Radio Show”. “These ‘Never Trump’ evangelicals are morons. They are absolutely spineless morons and they cannot admit that they were wrong.” To Jeffress and many other Christians who support Trump, it’s more about the policies, particularly on abortion, than the personal character

The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee is demanding to know why the panel´s Democratic leadership made the "costly" and "unusual" decision this week to hire two prominent anti-Trump consultants to conduct a purportedly impartial investigation of the the White House. In a letter to House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., the ranking member on the committee, GOP Rep. Doug Collins, asked how much taxpayers could expect to be charged for Barry Berke and Norman Eisen´s services -- as well as what exactly the pair of vocally anti-Trump operatives will be doing.

The Diocese of Covington has exonerated the Covington Catholic students of any wrongdoing in the viral incident following the March for Life in January — and added that their actions were “laudatory.” The Diocese had originally condemned the students and apologized on behalf of the students after a liberal media mob swarmed to attack the students. (Photo) In a statement on Wednesday, Bishop Rev. Roger Foys said that an independent investigation into the incident found that the boys did not instigate the incident and had not acted disrespectfully as far-left Native American activist Nathan Phillips had claimed.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he’s still waiting to see the border security deal that House appropriators came up with, and when he does, he’ll be “looking for land mines.” “We haven’t gotten it yet. We’ll be getting it. We’ll be looking for land mines, because you could have that. It’s been known to happen before to people, but we have not gotten it yet. It’ll be sent to us at some point, and we’ll take a very serious look at it. We have a lot of things happening right now,” Trump said during an Oval Office meeting with

The Department of Justice’s Russia investigation headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is said to be close to closing up shop, though we’ve had that for months and we’re still waiting on a report. So far, there is zero evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, the unicorn the Left is hoping to physically take a hold of in order to impeach the president. They’re still seething over their 2016 election loss. They hate President Trump. And that animus extends into the liberal media who has been astoundingly wrong in their coverage of this story. There have been so many so-called bombshells that

A Muslim-American congresswoman who fell on her sword last week after drawing fire for anti-Semitic tweets lashed out at President Donald Trump on Wednesday for saying she should resign her seat instead of offering a ´lame´ apology. ´You have trafficked in hate your whole life—against Jews, Muslims, Indigenous, immigrants, black people and more. I learned from people impacted by my words. When will you?´ Rep. Ilhan Omar wrote on Twitter. Fellow freshman Democratic lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came to Ilhan´s defense after Trump dismissed her publicly and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted her anti-Israel commentary.
