Jeb Bush: Donald Trump ‘Couldn’t
Have Been Nicer’ After Bush Sr. Died

Breitbart Politics, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/5/2018 10:03:44 AM

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush praised President Donald Trump on Tuesday for his gracious response to the Bush family after the death of George H.W. Bush. Jeb Bush said that Trump called him after his father died and “couldn’t have been nicer.” Trump’s former rival for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 spoke about his father’s death and President Trump during a Wall Street Journal event in Washington, DC. (Snip)“What people want to talk about is, well, why isn’t the president giving the eulogy?’” he said. “It’s because we have a unique circumstance here: my brother was president.”

What comes as a surprise to his former adversary is old and familiar knowledge to President Trump’s supporters. He is a king, generous-spirited gentleman. Blunt? Yes, when circumstances make it necessary. Warmhearted. Yes. Authentically so.

I believe Trump is a good guy basically. He is definitely outspoken, sometimes awkwardly, exasperatingly and over-the-top. He is his own man, used to fighting for his goals. He´s also open-minded and appears to let bygones be bygones. You have to not overreact to everything he says, like his enemies do all the time. He has good intentions for America and its people. He gets things done.

Oh I hate to say it, but I think there´s a marked change in their attitude since his wife died. GHWB seems to be a more forgiving person and perhaps has cautioned his family to lead with forgiveness (forgive us our trespasses - as - we forgive others - in other words we ask God to forgive us in the same manner we forgive others, tough one that is sometimes).

Death tends to make us all put aside our petty differences. It reminds us that life is fragile and we are all in this for the short haul.

Donald Trump plays the political game as well as anybody. He can get down in the gutter and throw mud with the best of them.

But he is also gracious and caring. When the campaign is over, his business experience has taught him well that you forget the mud slinging and work with your enemies (as long as they will work with you) for the mutual benefit of everyone.

President Trump may have said nasty things bout the Bush´s during the campaign, as the Bush´s said nasty things about Donald Trump. But this is no longer the campaign. This if life. And I honestly believe that everyone involved is keeping this about honoring a good man at the time of his death!!!!!

It may have been a blessing that John McCain died first. The public pettiness of the McCain family (undoubtedly with John´s consent) at his funeral may have shocked the Bush family. The Bush family has for the most part been a class act (except about the 2016 election) and they´re smart enough to see that the only people damaged by the McCains trashy behavior at John´s funeral were the McCains themselves.

If one goes back and looks at when President Trump attacks others, it is almost always after they have attacked him. It was so with Jeb Bush.

You may be right, #10, the tacky attacks on our President during the McCain spectacle might have made the family think long and hard. After all, Rove and the Bushes are working like little beavers quietly in Texas to launch Georgie P. Bush for higher office. (Yes, here we go again.)

Jim VandeHei of Axios claimed to sum up on Sunday “what we already now know” about Robert Mueller’s findings in the Russia probe. His next claim was even more robust. “What we already now know is highly damning and highly detailed.” If you want to — and I quote — “go deeper,” you can click a button that gives you “460 words” of how what we know is highly damning and highly detailed.

Two events this week could provide acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker enough reason to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller: The egregious case against General Michael Flynn and the mishandling of cell phones used by FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. According to the federal statute governing special counsel investigations, “the Attorney General may remove a Special Counsel for misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest, or for other good cause, including violation of Departmental policies.” (Snip)“other good cause” could be the failure to produce court-ordered documents related to the Flynn case or the special counsel’s

For the past two years we have seen the emergence of a coherent Trump doctrine in both words and deeds. There is a remarkable consistency throughout all of President Trump’s speeches, formal documents (such as the National Security Strategy) and actions of the administration. To understand the Trump doctrine, we must begin with candidate Trump’s first major speech on foreign policy on April 27, 2016 (thus even before the Indiana primary) to the Center for the National Interest at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Fox News reported, "Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team on Friday released key documents relating to the FBI’s questioning of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, confirming agents did not believe at the time Flynn intentionally lied to them -- though he was later charged with making false statements in that interview." I told you that Bungling Bob Mueller had a bad day on Wednesday when federal Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered him to release all exculpatory evidence that could clear General Flynn.

Mexican federal investigators discovered an active fentanyl lab belonging to the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico City. The discovery was the result of an investigation by the Attorney General’s Office of Mexico, according to local media. Authorities executed a search warrant inside a building housing the city hall for the Azcapotzalco municipal government, located in the northwest section of Mexico City. The raid took place on the weekend of December 8, but information was not released to the public until days later. One person who oversaw and managed the lab was arrested, according to the Attorney General’s office.

President Donald Trump and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen must wrap the blame for the dehydration death of a seven-year-old migrant child around the necks of her father, Ninth Circuit judges, and open-border progressives, says Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies. Democrats “are trying to turn this poor little girl into a martyr for open borders,” he said. Most Americans are not closely following the details, and they can be swayed by media-magnified emotional arguments from the Democrats, Krikorian said. Democrats, he said, are:

Why Wouldn’t The Obama Intelligence

Forget the unmentioned brutally obvious political motives and intents behind the operation against Donald Trump for a moment; and focus on the collective Obama activity as if they actually believed the claims they have since presented… The counterintelligence investigation into candidate, president-elect, and president Donald Trump was predicated on the Obama’s intelligence community believing that campaign officials were colluding, conspiring and otherwise coordinating to take over the office of the presidency, with help from a foreign government. So why wouldn’t the intelligence services of the United States government conduct wiretaps and full blown surveillance upon that incoming administration?

The curious case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn gets even more curious as Robert Mueller doesn’t deliver the FBI notes (FD-302) from the January 2017 interview of Flynn, as requested by Judge Emmet Sullivan, and instead submits notes from an internal July 19th, 2017, interview with FBI agent Peter Strzok. The filing by the special counsel team (full pdf below) is a must read. The special counsel begins their filing by criticizing the approach taken by the Flynn defense in the defense sentencing memo; and attempts to validate/justify their charges against the accused.

A federal judge in Texas late Friday threw the health coverage of some 20 million Americans in limbo by ruling Obamacare must be scrapped because Congress struck the penalty for failing to obtain insurance coverage. The invalidation of the landmark 2010 law is certain to send shock waves through the U.S. health system and Washington after a midterm election seen in part as a rebuke to Republican efforts to tear down Obamacare.

SAN PEDRO SULA, HONDURAS--Less than a decade ago, when Honduras was the homicide capital of the world and this industrial city was the homicide capital of Honduras, the neighborhood of Rivera Hernandez was usually deserted after dark. Residents cowered in their homes, hiding from murderous gangs. Today, there is less to fear. (Snip) The transformation is thanks in part to hundreds of millions of dollars the United States has spent to help Honduras fight crime. The aid has flowed based on a simple hope: If the streets were safer, fewer people would migrate north.

President Trump said Friday that he’s tapped Mick Mulvaney to be acting chief of staff at the White House, adding yet another role to the man who’s already his budget director. Mr. Mulvaney will take over for current Chief of Staff John Kelly, who is leaving at the end of the year. The White House said there is no time limit on the role. “He’s the acting chief of staff, which means he’s the chief of staff. He got picked because the president liked him they get along,” an official told reporters.

A 7-year-old girl from Guatemala died of dehydration and shock after she was taken into Border Patrol custody last week for crossing from Mexico into the United States illegally with her father and a large group of migrants along a remote span of New Mexico desert, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Thursday. (Snip)More than eight hours later, the child began having seizures at 6:25 a.m., CBP records show. Emergency responders, who arrived soon after, measured her body temperature at 105.7 degrees, and according to a statement from CBP, she “reportedly had not eaten or consumed water for several days.”

Another day, another avalanche of news about the President: berating Democratic leaders on camera; unceremoniously announcing the departure of his chief of staff; calling his former Secretary of State “dumb as a rock.” It never lets up. Trump is a ubiquitous, suffocating presence in American life. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The modern presidency is the framers’ worst nightmare, a flatly unconstitutional concentration of power. As the Trump era has made abundantly clear, the office itself — its size, scope, and prominence in American life — is the driving force of dysfunction in our politics.

In October, Warren released a DNA test in an attempt to combat President Donald Trump’s many attacks on her alleged Native American ancestry. The test results showed that she has a Native American ancestor “in the range of 6–10 generations ago.” But during a commencement address at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland, on Friday, Warren made clear that she does not consider herself a person of color. “I’m not a person of

New York -The Weekly Standard, the magazine that espouses traditional conservatism and which has remained deeply critical of President Donald Trump, will shutter after 23 years, Clarity Media Group, the owner of its publisher announced Friday morning. It will publish its final issue on December 17.

If we want to stop climate change, we’ll have to stop pumping out carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. In order to do that, we’ll need to replace all the sources of carbon pollution—like fossil fuel plants and combustion vehicles—with clean, renewable alternatives.

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base.

The Weekly Standard will be no more. There is no real reason we are witnessing the magazine’s demise other than deep pettiness and a personal desire for bureaucratic revenge on the part of a penny-ante Machiavellian who works for its parent company. There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.
