George W. Bush:´Bigotry seems emboldened´in US
Hill, by Rebecca Savransky

Original Article

Posted By:Tishimself, 10/20/2017 7:50:22 AM

Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that “bigotry seems emboldened” in the United States, warning that Americans need to reject “white supremacy.” The former president also criticized the “governing class,” but did not specifically mention President Trump, Congress or any other politicians in office. “Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts” in recent years, Bush said in remarks from New York City at a forum focused on security and sponsored by the George W. Bush Institute.

The Bigotry from the LEFT is what is emboldened. No doubt. All of the "White Privilege" crap is an excuse by those who refuse the "Personal Responsibility" aspect of life.

And who is the bigot here, George? It seems to me to be your friends, the Democrats.

They´re the ones pushing divisiveness. And when you have differences that are celebrated - nay demanded - you have bigotry. And they have always been the party that hunted out the envies of fellow Americans to enhance and then present themselves, not as the cure, but as the means to revenge.

The Bushes (except for Laura) have been “rolled” by the best, Mitchell, Clinton, Daschel, Nancy P, Reed, Obama, Hillary! It is pitiful that they capitulate to the dishonest, corrupt lockstep voting of the democrat party! The democrat party is not Democratic they do not have one vote one person, they have a party vote! Name a major issue that the democrats do not vote in unison! Starting with Obamacare! Not one descent?
The Bushes are nice people but naive to the core!

Dear President Bush:

You sir have become part of the biggest problem we have in the USA. You have allowed the ministry of propoganda to shape your thoughts, then turned to regurgitate their drivel from a position of power that we gave you. You have allowed yourself to be a tool of the grievance industry.

There is bigotry in this country but the only aspect that is "emboldened" is that which Obama´s election unleashed.

BLM, all based on bovine excrement and it´s treated as a legitimate entity as if it were an extension of MLK. That´s bold indeed now isn´t it?

Are players kneeling at football games to protest a lack of proportional white players? Who has become so bold as to kneel and why?

Are you even aware of who Jason Kessler is?

So the quiet mouse was silent during the two terms of Obama, would not criticize Obama or even defend himself against what Obama said about him. Now, all of sudden he fires up the microphone to criticize a Republican administration and America itself. Shut up you foolish buffoon! We don´t care what you think. Go back to "not nation building", your claim to fame, early in your campaign. You just got sour grapes because we told Jeb to take a hike. Thank god we ended your monarchy of Bushes.

Americans have no duty to "adapt" to changes that put them at a disadvantage.

I voted for W twice, not understanding that his refusal to secure our borders was part of a globalist redistribution scheme. He allowed illegal immigration to continue unchecked. As we have seen, developed nations around the world are now on the receiving end of millions of "refugees" and "migrants," always at great expense of their own citizens and their way of life.

President Trump upset the "New World Order" by vowing to return power to the American people whether party elites like it or not. God bless him.

I always thought two things about the Bushes. 1. They were gentlemen, in the traditional way men were gentlemen. They didn´t fuss, the didn´t fight they sure didn´t use crude examples and language to defend themselves. 2. Their background pushed them, whether they resisted the pushing or not only they could really say, toward the center left. They played to the conservative values of the Republican base, but were never entirely comfortable with their stance´s within themselves.

It strikes me as noticeable that each of the Bushes, father and sons, has kept quiet when it comes to criticizing the Democrats, and been comfortable criticizing Conservatives and Trump, ostensibly, the Republican leader in office now. Adopting the view that to disagree with, is to embrace or water the roots of "bigotry" in the USA, is to buy into the worldview of the Liberal in the US today.

"White supremacy" -- OK so they redefine any sort of pride in your race, heritage and history of clear, world changing accomplishment as "white supremacy" so that you have to be ashamed to be white?

NOT a "white supremacist" in the Webster´s dictionary form, but if they mean I have to have guilt for being white, no pride in myself, my race, my ancestors massive, world saving accimplishment - then go to hell.

Once you start this "which race is best" garbage you are going to lose, so don´t do it. Clearly almost all of the advances in the world have come through European developents in science, technology, government and law. That means that the white Europeans are the ones who achieved the things that makes the world what it is.

Hard facts. Not going away, and I will not deny the facts to buy into the "all cultures are equal" garbage. This is obviously not true. Look what the continents of Africa and much of Asia and North and South America prior to colonization accomplished. Nothing much in the way of advancing the lot of mankind. Much of the world was still in the stone age when Europe had firearms, and much more.
Cut the BS "white supremcist" smear in what is justified pride in accomplishment.

We are learning so much more about George W. Bush. Would he have been President if what we know about him now had been known in 2000? Unfortunately, the options were Al Gore or John McCain...

If Bush is going to call out white bigotry, he needs to call out black bigotry as well. The whole notion of fighting a war on racism is stupid. Government cannot legislate human nature.

MLK (a Baptist minister) succeeded by appealing to our better natures. The anti-white bigots and their globalist fellow travelers - including Dubya - try to shame us. All they are accomplishing is to kindle a race war.

Newton´s Third Law applies to politics as well as kinetics. The Trump corollary adds that the political reaction will be several times stronger than the triggering action.

Bush is showing that he really is an idiot, under the spell of the Clintons with who he hobknobs, as almost all Americans, except for a very radical few, have long ago abandoned any ideas of so-called “white supremacy” or any form of organized bigotry.

Clearly Bush is still smarting from the beating that President Trump put on his brother the wimpy Jeb, last year in the run up to the election. But even that was not as bad as the political whipping that the liberal and socialist Democrats put on his personal and professional reputation for eight years when he was President, without Bush making any competent response in defense of himself or his political policies and programs as the liberal and socialist Democrats continuously kicked him and his political agenda into the gutter.

By doing that Bush was greatly responsible for the liberal and socialist Democrats taking over the Congress and Obama being elected. The result of that was American troops being pulled out of Iraq very early that gave ISIS the ability and time to form and take over portions of Iraq and Syria murdering hundreds of thousands of people and causing the mass illegal migration into Europe.

Go back to sleep G.W. Bush.

In an exclusive interview with Utah Gov.

He’ll have a lot of support from the wealthy people that he knows from when he ran for president.

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

Arizona Senate Primary Battle Officially Kicks Off

The Arizona Senate primary officially kicked off Friday, and it’s going to be a battle — with war planes and all. Republican Rep. Martha McSally launched her Senate run at the Tucson Jet Center on Friday morning and will travel to other areas of the state later in the day. She donned a blue flight suit to fly in a World War II-era AT-6 trainer to Phoenix, and then to Prescott. McSally, of course, is piloting the plane herself. “Fly, fight and win. That’s our plan,” said McSally, a second-term congresswoman and the first female pilot to fly in combat.

Republicans hoping to hold on to the Arizona Senate seat currently held by Sen. Jeff Flake (R) face an increasingly tumultuous primary environment, with firebrand former sheriff Joe Arpaio entering the race from the right and Rep. Martha McSally trying to win over President Trump’s supporters without alienating more moderate general election voters. The Tuesday announcement from Arpaio, whose criminal contempt conviction Trump pardoned last year, came just days before McSally joined the primary. While Arpaio made his name as an immigration hard-liner and promoter of the discredited conspiracy theory that former President Obama wasn’t born in the United States, McSally

Federal prosecutors have long insisted the goal of a fraud scheme at Pilot Flying J was to boost the truck stop giant’s profit and market share, and this week they served up numbers to try to prove it. Jurors in U.S. District Court in Chattanooga this week heard testimony and saw financial records showing that Pilot Flying J’s margin on diesel fuel sales, the number of truck stops it controlled and the amount of diesel fuel it sold all grew substantially during the time of the fraud at issue in the ongoing trial of the firm’s former president and three subordinates.

It would rank as one of the greatest political upsets of 2018 and a stunning rebuke to Trumpism: a gay Latina Democrat grabbing hold of the country’s biggest red state. But is Texas ready for Lupe Valdez? The question was first posed in Dallas in 2004, when Valdez scored a surprise victory to become the nation’s first openly gay female Hispanic sheriff on the same night that George W Bush secured a second term in the White House. She won re-election three times in Dallas county before announcing last month that she would resign to stand for Texas governor. Born in San Antonio,

Fox News is the last place you’d expect to see evidence of the growing push for antitrust enforcement. And yet Tucker Carlson this week devoted segments on two of his shows to arguing that Google has surpassed the federal government as the biggest threat to American liberty. In a spirited debate with Senator Mike Lee of Utah (who sits on the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights), Carlson called for a return to trust-busting: “Here’s the bottom line from my perspective: No company has ever been as powerful in the history of the world as Google

Fifty years ago — really, has it been that long? — Cardinals Hall of Fame righthander Bob Gibson sashayed through the National League with a 22-9 record, 13 shutouts, 28 complete games, 268 strikeouts and a mind-numbing 1.12 earned-run average, best in the modern era. But it wasn’t that easy. “There was pressure all year,” said Gibson, who especially will be honored Sunday night among other Cardinals greats of the past 60 years at the annual St. Louis Baseball Writers’ dinner at Union Station Hotel. “I have them right now, but I think I developed ulcers then.

The Washington Post has placed national reporter Janell Ross on leave after she was exposed giving a strategy briefing at a secret strategy conference for left-wing donors, politicians and activists in November, according to a new report. Ross was a featured speaker a conference funded by Democracy Alliance, a network of left-wing donors aligned with billionaire financier George Soros. Ross’s role at the conference, which was closed to reporters, was only revealed when the Washington Free Beacon obtained a copy of the conference agenda. She did not notify her employers before speaking at the left-wing summit, where she briefed attendees on

Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) has decided against challenging North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp this November, rejecting pleas from President Donald Trump and leaving the GOP without a top-tier candidate against Heitkamp — a first-term Democratic senator seeking reelection in a state Trump won by 36 points in 2016. Cramer made the announcement Thursday on "What´s On Your Mind?" — a radio program syndicated statewide in North Dakota, saying he needed to spend time with his 10-year-old son.

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century. "Chanel liberated women (after World War I) by dressing them in male fabrics like tweed,"

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump’s combative attitude toward the press and called on Congress to protect journalists worldwide. “Whether Trump knows it or not, these efforts are being closely watched by foreign leaders who are already using his words as cover as they silence and shutter one of the key pillars of democracy,” McCain said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post. McCain called the Trump administration’s treatment of journalists “inconsistent at best and hypocritical at worst,” particularly when it comes to condemning attacks on the press abroad. McCain cited foreign leaders who have

By the grace of God, and thanks to our robust and decentralized system of government, the U.S. has survived nearly a year with an unprepared, underinformed, incurious, incontinent narcissist as president. In fact, in some regards, we’ve even thrived during this past year. Still, the president’s character — mostly his colossal self-regard, his lack of self-control, and his unwillingness or inability to learn what he ought — made the year at times aggravating, terrifying, and certainly divisive. Trump hasn’t brought on any catastrophes yet, but he has frayed the nerves of his country. And there’s still three more years of this. I’m sure

U.S. Border Patrol has been accused of causing the deaths of hundreds of migrants a year by destroying food and water supplies left for them in the brutal Arizona desert by humanitarian groups. On Wednesday, two humanitarian groups released a report, detailing how they´ve distributed more than 31,000 gallons of water along dangerous migrant paths in the Arizona desert between 2012 and 2015. In that time frame, they say volunteers have found these stashes of food and water destroyed 415 times - or about two times a week on average. ´Through statistical analysis, video evidence, and personal experience, our team has

In an exclusive interview with Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, FOX Business was told that Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, will likely receive the backing of mega-donors, not just within Utah, but across the country as he gets ready to announce his candidacy. “He’s given me every indication that he’s running. He’ll have a lot of support from the wealthy people that he knows from when he ran for president. The people on the same list of donors that he had before for 2012, including those from Utah, is a very good place for him to raise money,” Herbert, a
