George W. Bush: Russia
meddled in 2016 U.S. election

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/8/2018 6:00:10 AM

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates – Former President George W. Bush says “there’s pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled” in the 2016 U.S. president election. Bush made the comments in a talk in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. Bush also said that Russian President Vladimir Putin “is zero-sum. He can’t think, ‘How can we both win?’ He only thinks, ‘How do I win, you lose?´” Bush also said that the United States needs to reform its immigration law. While not directly naming President Donald Trump, it appeared Bush was targeting him in his comments. Bush

A once respected President becomes a bigger and bigger disappointment with every passing day.

He owns the immigration debacle as much as Obama does. Then again, the CoC and globalists owned him. Screw the American people.

#5 - so true.

Meanwhile, George NEVER said anything about Obama for eight years.

What happened to not speaking about a sitting President??

Moreover, anyone else notice how he skipped around the REAL news of Obama/Clinton/Holder/Comey, etc????

I´ve always thought the Bushes liked the Clintons a bit too much. He is trying to cover her b__t in some way by trying to implement Pres. Trump. Wonder how much he got to make that speech! Money talks. Follow it!

George W. is becoming a tedious fool when he insinuates his displeasure with this President but kept his mouth firmly closed when Obama was wreaking havoc on this country. Frankly, I don’t care what he says about anything. He has become a huge disappointment because he let the media roll him and gave them more power than he should have. They certainly gained confidence during his presidency. Had he challenged them or even defended himself, I don’t believe they would be quite the rapacious jackals they have become.

It´s obvious that the dead have ´meddled´ in the election... that there were people double voting... that the elderly gave their votes to ´helpers´...

...and, of course, the illegals/non-citizens.

Of all of these, you only have a concern about Russian influence?

When the Democrats and the media pounded George Bush for eight years with no defense or pushback from him, it left us conservatives perplexed and demoralized. Now, as Bush has denigrated Trump throughout the campaign season and his presidency while not uttering an unkind word about Obama throughout his 8 years, we´re seeing how entangled in the swamp the Bush family is, ending with Low Energy Jeb! Bush.

No more Kennedy´s, no more Clinton´s, and no more Bushes!

Hey George - not one word of criticism of Obama or the his policies or the USA during Obama´s reign. Heck, if you travelled overseas during those years, you certainly didn´t criticize Obama or the US. But now, while Trump is President - you can´t keep your mouth shut; her or overseas. A disgrace. The salvaged official portrait of you that I had has since been flung into the trash can.

Any faith I had in the Bush cabal went out the day I heard the words "new world order." I had hoped GW would be an American president but alas that wasn´t so.

Bush need not position such statements to target Trump, over half the nation and the vast majority of media will leap to the conclusion that a former POTUS is endorsing the notion that Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election. The lack of clearly stating he meant no such thing, given the political climate, means he fully intended to add fuel to the fire that is attempting to burn down a presidency. Its sedition and he´s participating. I, appalled; one of the worst acts of any former POTUS. Take your resistance and stuff it.

Selling our national interests, Uranium, missile technology for personal gain is no big deal as long as one of the swamp creatures does it. Trump spits on the sidewalk and its a constitutional crisis.

God save us and MAGA.

Who gave him that info? What investigative agency did he use to get it? What information does he have, specifically to prove his point? If I were a Senate Committee Chairperson, I would immediately invite the ex-President to come forward before the committee and tell us the details that support his remark!

It is blatantly stupid statements like that that hurt a nation. And that horse´s A55 does it in a foreign country filled with Billionaires who hate our country! But, then again, G.W. Bush is a blatantly stupid man.

George was a good man very early in his Presidency, the right person at the right time after 9-11. But overall he was a terrible President with no ability to defend American principles or fight back against the hard left and the enemedia. And let’s be honest, the Bush family (who are my distant cousins) are a founding component of The Swamp.

Why didn´t you end this did you keep our precious military over there so a democrats could end it?

But I have now lost all respect for the Bush family, and hope we never see in political office another Bush, or a Clinton, or a Kennedy.

History shows that the Bush clan are very liberal Republicans who disguised themselves as being “compassionate conservatives”. During his time in office as the liberal and progressive Democrats trashed his character, his personal and professional reputations, and his policies, G.W. Bush remained silent thus allowing his political enemies to essentially kick him into the gutter without Bush offering any effective defense. That was a big part of the political pathway that allowed the liberal and progressive Democrats to successfully get he most liberal and socialist President in histor, Barack Obama, to be elected. After that happened G.W. Bush again remained silent as Obama went around blaming his for all of the nation’s ills.

Now G.W. Bush shows up in a Middle East country adversely commenting on President Bush and putting down the US immigration laws, the non-enforcement of which during the Bush Administration to supply an unlimited supply of cheap foreign labor for hire by US Chamber of Commerce members exasperated the illegal alien situation. Clearly as far as he immigration laws were concerned G.W. Bush and his ineffective immigration enforcement policies were a big part of the problem and encouraged more mass uncontrolled illegal immigration. Give us a break!

We need more businessmen and women like Trump and less "professional" politicians like the Clinton´s, Bushes and Obama´s. There is a new day coming in politics if we dare to make it happen. These politicians get lifetime jobs, pensions, health care and benefits for their families for WHAT? The people always get screwed with them.

If GWB´s aim is to compete with Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama, he is getting closer to his goal.

At the time he attacked Saddam, I supported him with the belief that he was going to finish the job. Wrong assumption. The only thing Saddam was doing wrong was killing Iraqis and Iranians, a far better situation than killing Americans and spawning ISIS. Yes, his "surge" was a good move but it followed the mistake of not having enough troops there for years.

Go home and cut some brush on the ranch, George, or grow some nads and give that speech in Washington instead of in front of the muslim world. I have some eggs and tomatoes with your name all over them.

"Meddled" could mean anything from a post on a Fakebook page to actually accessing voter machines.

IMO, these globalists who are desperate to smear Trump want to take real evidence of exceedingly minor and mostly irrelevant stuff like Fakebook posts and try to confuse/convince people that what they really mean is that Trump helped the Russians flip votes inside a voting machine which did NOT happen

When these guys go so totally overboard to oppose Trump, and while I see all the wonderful, right, proper, GOOD things that Trump is doing to help our country, I move them into my "never again be fooled by these liars" category. A whole lot of people that I used to be fooled into thinking were conservatives are now in that box.

W completes the circle and shows us exactly how big a Deep Stater he is. There must be some dangling thread that connects him to a globalist in a way that he doesn´t want revealed. To cover his behind and his entire globalist loving family, he chips away at President Trump. The only interesting part of this anti Americanism is how difficult it might be for the progressives to embrace their new ally after hating him for their entire lives.

They probably did, but not in the way everyone seems to think. But, hey ... it´s what they do.

I read somewhere the opinion that Russia spends more cash, time, and energy on sowing disinformation than on "spying," per se. It´s easier, effective, and less expensive than actual espionage.

President Donald Trump used his failed North Korea summit to blast Democrats, charging the party with ´rooting against us.´ He lashed out against them the day after he announced he was cancelling the planned summit with President Kim Jong-Un in Singapore next month. ´Democrats are so obviously rooting against us in our negotiations with North Korea,´ he wrote in an early morning Twitter blast on Friday. His Twitter attack was filled with his other grievances against Democrats, including his assertion they defend the violent El Salvadorian gang MS 13 and that they want to raise taxes. ´Dems have lost touch!,´ he charged.

Roger Stone, the self-described Republican ´political dirty trickster´ and longtime Trump adviser, allegedly inquired about damaging information on Hillary Clinton from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange before the 2016 election. According to The Wall Street Journal, Stone asked New York radio host Randy Credico in a September 18, 2016, email if he could reach out to Assange. ´Please ask Assange for any State or HRC e-mail from August 10 to August 30 — particularly on August 20, 2011,´ Stone wrote in the email. Stone reportedly wanted information that dated back to 2011 when Clinton was blamed for a failed Libyan

Six huge fissures sent rivers of molten rock through a blackened, volcanic wilderness that was once jungle, farmland and rural homes.

John McCain admits he knew the anti-Trump dossier that he infamously passed to the FBI contained “unproven accusations,” “mostly raw, unverified intelligence” and allegations about which the senator “had no idea” if “any were true.” Yet McCain maintains he had an “obligation” to pass the wild charges against Donald Trump to FBI Director James Comey and he would even do it again. “Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain exclaimed. In the book The Restless Wave, McCain provides an inside account of how he says he came across

The public face of the gun-control movement demanded $1 million Thursday from the Florida-based grocery chain in a tweet, just one day after calling for a “die-in” protest at its stores. Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns.

President Barack Obama took a light swing at his successor during a tech conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday. His eight years in office were scandal free, he told the audience. "I didn´t have scandals, which seems like it shouldn´t be something you brag about," Obama joked. President Donald Trump’s presidency has thus far been racked with scandalous allegations, but Obama later hedged his barb.

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko.
