I wish only the best for them both; but if they did want to avoid sitting outside in the freezing for a terribly long time, that´d be an adequate reason

They are older and the former President particularly not in good shape. We all know this election has been exceedingly devastating for the family. They get the finest of the finest medical care and I am glad. Prayers that they will be feeling well very soon.

We already knew the older Bush´s were not coming. His lower body Parkinson´s would not permit sitting in the bad weather like that. This is shoddy reporting by Fox News to act like they were coming.

The only news here is that they both are in the hospital. I am truly sorry to hear this news today. Makes me wonder if Junior Bush will be coming Friday.

Prayers for a speedy and full recovery for both. It seems that they got the ´crud´ that has been going around. While just an annoyance for me and others, it can be serious to those with compromised immunity. A reminder to all of us that those flu shots are not always 100%. (But they are still generally worthwhile.)

@#4 - Barring something awful happening between now and Friday, Bush 43 will be at the Inauguration. If need be, you can bet Trump will offer up Air Force One to Bush to get back to Texas.

#9, not necessarily. I understand your concern, but my father survived two bouts of pneumonia, one at age 90 and and the second at age 93. If it´s bacterial pneumonia, it´s very easily treatable with i.v. infusions of antibiotics. Sometimes patients with a host of pre-existing and terminal condition are allowed to die of pneumonia. And viral pneumonia, as opposed to bacterial pneumonia, is a killer.

In any case, I wish President and Mrs. Bush full and speedy recoveries

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Wednesday that there is “more than circumstantial evidence now” to suggest that President Donald Trump’s campaign may have colluded with Russia’s attempts to disrupt the election, but he would not offer details. (Snip) “I don’t want to go into specifics, but I will say that there is evidence that is not circumstantial and is very much worthy of investigation, so that is what we ought to do,” Schiff said.

WASHINGTON — A network of some of the nation’s wealthiest Democratic donors is weighing providing money and support to several of the new activist groups that have cropped up since Election Day to challenge President Trump and his agenda. Organizers of January’s Women’s March on Washington and leaders of Indivisible will make presentations later this week to the Democracy Alliance when the influential donor coalition holds its private spring meeting in Washington, the group’s president Gara LaMarche said. (Snip) The alliance, aligned with billionaire financier George Soros, also is weighing building a pool of money that can be deployed for

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Monday accused Democrats of making up allegations that Russia interfered in last year´s election, and said Congress and the FBI should be going after media leaks instead. His tweets came just hours before a potentially politically damaging hearing in which FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers planned to testify on allegations of Russian hacking and whether there were any connections between Moscow and Trump´s campaign. “The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!”

Republican senators are asking Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to investigate claims that U.S. taxpayer money is being used to back left-wing billionaire George Soros´ political meddling and similar efforts overseas. A letter sent Tuesday asked for a probe into how U.S. funds are being used by agencies such as the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to back left-wing political groups in other countries. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, one of the co-signers, even said foreign officials and political leaders have come to him with "reports of U.S. activity in their respective countries."

A senior Senate Democrat is asking the Treasury Department to evaluate whether President Donald Trump and his family´s business associates and possible investors from Russia and other countries have violated U.S. laws against financing terrorism, money laundering and other illicit activities. Trump´s refusal to jettison or disclose investments that create potential conflicts of interest raises concern over his extensive international holdings, Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio said in a letter Thursday to the new Treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin. Brown is the senior Democrat on the Senate Banking Committee. Brown asked Mnuchin whether he has requested or received from Trump and

President Trump welcomed Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to the White House on Friday. Before the two world leaders held a press conference, they met in the Oval Office and shook hands. That 19-second handshake is one of the most talked about things on Twitter right now. “I shook hands but I grabbed him and hugged him because that’s the way I feel,” Trump said at the press conference in the East Room later. Trump and Abe are flying to Mar-a-Lago for a round of golf and “long talk” this weekend. (Entire article.)

A Texas high school art teacher has been placed on administrative leave after video surfaced showing her “shooting” President Donald Trump inside a classroom while screaming, “Die!” The Secret Service field office in Irving tells me they are aware of the incident, but declined further comment. (Snip) Video of the inauguration was being broadcast inside the classroom on a whiteboard. The video shows the teacher lunging at President Trump and firing the squirt gun numerous times while shouting, “Die!” It is disturbing, to say the least. Dallas Independent School District seems to be taking the matter quite seriously.

Josef Joffe, the editor-publisher of German weekly Die Zeit, suggests the easiest way to end the “Trump catastrophe” is to murder the president in the White House. Joffe joined panel show ARD-Presseclub to answer questions from the public. A viewer called in to ask if it was possible to impeach President Donald Trump and end the “catastrophe.” “There has to be a qualified two-thirds majority of the Senate in order for a removal of office to take place,” a female panelist responded.

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Green Party-backed voters dropped a court case Saturday night that had sought to force a statewide recount of Pennsylvania’s Nov. 8 presidential election, won by Republican Donald Trump, in what Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein had framed as an effort to explore whether voting machines and systems had been hacked and the election result manipulated. (Snip) Lawyers for Trump and the state Republican Party argued there was no evidence, or even an allegation, that tampering with Pennsylvania´s voting systems had occurred. Further, Pennsylvania law does not allow a court-ordered recount, they argued, and a lawyer for

With the words "credibility questioned" prominent on the screen, Scott Pelley once again is doing what network evening-news anchors generally don´t do: abandoning careful neutrality in favor of pointed truth-telling. He is talking Thursday night about President Trump. And here are some of the words he is using: "his boasting and tendency to believe conspiracy theories." It´s nothing new. Pelley, of CBS Evening News, has set himself apart — especially in recent weeks — with a spate of such assessments, night after night. Perhaps the most notable one, on Feb. 7, went like this: "It has been a busy day

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday stepped up his criticism of House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to replace him. "Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes," the Senate minority leader said from the floor. "If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes." Nunes caused an uproar last week when he told the press that he had seen intelligence showing that members of President Trump´s transition team had been caught up in surveillance operations — without first discussing the information with fellow committee members.

Is a guaranteed paycheck from the government, with no strings attached, the answer to the relentless rise of automation? The concept might sound far-fetched, but a so-called universal basic income (UBI), is currently one of the most hotly debated policy topics being floated as a means to address income inequality and the disruption that technology poses to the workforce. UBI is being tested in Finland and other international markets, but has received decidedly mixed reactions. Meanwhile, developments in robotics and artificial intelligence have grave implications for the labor force. A report issued this week from consulting firm PwC found that

Matryoshkas are Russian nesting dolls. Inside each doll are several others smaller but identically shaped characters until you get to the smallest one inside. Studying what we have learned of the timeline -- and we still don’t have the entire story -- we see Wikileaks, the smallest, at the core, and Obama as the largest piece in what is the most historically outrageous misuse of the people and institutions of government for partisan advantage.

Speaking at the White House, Mr. Sessions said his department is preparing to dole out more than $4 billion in funds this year, but will try prevent any of it from going to sanctuaries. “Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Mr. Sessions said.

The New York Democrat made the offer in the wake of Friday’s decision by Mr. Trump and House Speaker Paul D.

The bill lacked enough Republican support to pass, including many defectors among conservatives.
