'won't win anything' if they stand for
'white Anglo-Saxon protestantism' and
slams his own party for not
being inclusive

Former President George W. Bush suggested the Republican Party needed to reach out to a more diverse coalition of voters if it wanted to come back into power. 'If you Republican Party stands for exclusivity—you know, it used to be country clubs, now evidently it's white Anglo-Saxon Protestantism—then it's not going to win anything,' Bush said in an interview with The Dispatch podcast last week.(Snip) 'My whole point on all this immigration debate and stuff is, I think if we valued life as precious and every life matters, that we’re all God’s children, that all of a sudden the tone

What possible good could come from demonizing the people who founded this nation? And how many Americans of every kind were killed or maimed in Dubya's Big Middle East Adventure? How many inconvenient babies murdered by Planned Parenthood, which the Bushes secretly supported all along? "Miss me yet?" Not at all.

Logic was never GW's strong suit. Neither was the courage and foresight to stand up to baseless charges by our domestic enemies. It's an outright lie that Anglo-Saxon Protestantism isn't inclusive and welcoming to all races. GW is a village idiot and coward for not recognizing and vigorously defending that truth.

I'm half in agreement. Conservatives have a lousy way of "selling" their viewpoint. And it is too "white." We all have our own motivations, our own values that may intersect. Too many look for orthodoxy, quick to label those who may disagree "not real conservative". Want to "argue" with a Muslim or Hindu, both key constituents in my county, don't start up with Bible quotes. In my Texas county, which is minority-majority with a very heavy (legal) immigrant population, the hat and six-shooter approach doesn't sell well. Some folks can't see that...and wonder why the county is quickly becoming blue after decades of Republican administration.

W, you staying up too late at night or something? Just now catching on that you are public enemy No. 1 and 1/2? Yeah, W, tell Jebbie everything will be all right despite Trump mopping the floor with him. Have you wondered how different things would be if your daddy HW hadn't sold out America in 1992 with the tax increase thing? W, you starting to wonder what kind of presidency you would have had less 9/11? Was 9/11 orchestrated by the US Government, W? Ok. So maybe the white guy schtick is the fly in the ointment now? But, I thought the Eye of the Illuminati was always on you? So many questions.

#10, it isn’t America’s job to cater to newcomers from disparate cultures. The Anglo-Saxon customs of English common law, private property and enjoying the fruits of one’s own labor are attractive to immigrants of good will and citizens should insist on appreciation of those things on the part of immigrants. The Protestant habits of hard work, honesty, selflessness, thrift, self-determination, respect for all others and reverence towards a Supreme Being make strong communities filled with people who are generous with time, money and friendship. George Bush is another child of privilege who never appreciated America for its goodness.

W is "old news" trying to remain relevant by jumping onto the "white guilt" bandwagon. Under the constitution, "all men are created equal." NO guarantees, but do what you do well and you will succeed in America regardless of color. That's why Nigerian immigrants succeed here while American blacks always seem to struggle and cry victim-hood. Wait for the free-stuff handouts from those who perpetually promise heaven-on-earth, in exchange for your vote, and you'll get what you deserve.

Wow. This is pretty stupid. Candace Owens is a WASP? The new wave of black and Hispanic support is coming from the country club? How thick is W? By his logic and the poster who wants to stand on the soapbox with him and attempt to lecture everyone, I say this. By your reasoning you HAVE to support Donald J Trump, today. Right now, send him money and speak out FOR him. You can NOT deny that President Trump got more support from more people of ALL backgrounds THAN ANY OTHER REPUBLICAN, ever. RECORD employment for minorities, record income, support that is funded for years for black colleges, record turn out and support by Hispanic communities. School choice, opportunity zones and much more. To whine and pontificate about Donald Trump's Presidency as a doomed bastion of WASPs, from the leader of that insider gang of globalist trash is not funny, it is infuriating. You punk. You suddenly loud mouth loser. You privileged coward. Now you stand up? Of course you do you globalist apologist for Saudi Arabia and every other sewer with money. If you knew honor or shame you would shut your mouth. I mean really, how stupid can someone be to spew the media lie, when the recent record is crystal clear and filled with facts and accomplishments so big, so historical that even the evil media had to report it. Denying that and lecturing on some podcast or coming here and spewing the same nonsense, is a sign of some deep misunderstanding of the reality of the entire Trump Presidency. Or they just lie as often as they can to try and smear the record for the smooth brains.

What's wrong with White Anglo-Saxon Protestantism? Nearly everything we have in modern civilization was invented by White Ango-Saxon Protestants. Talk about "cultural appropriation." Everyone, whites, blacks, hispanics, asians all dress in modern clothes, watch TV, use cell phones, drive cars and everything else invented by us. We outlawed slavery, freed the slaves, built a nation where we at least try to have liberty and justice for all.

The Bushes are a lost cause. Bush ‘43 at least had credentials, but didn’t understand politics, a third tier rural politician and a chicken rancher derailed his 2nd term. W abandoned the party and has gone over to the dark side. Jeb was a waste of time, even with a bankroll couldn’t differentiate himself from a nobody. A sad tale of a WASP family squandering their privilege. The moral of the story is if you want to like the Bushes, you’ll never get elected again. That’s why we all voted for TRUMP.

The ONLY good thing I can say about this jerk is that in 2000 he gave us an alternative to a greater evil—Al Gore, and did the same in 2004 with John Effing Kerry. Seeing the damage to the country that Obama inflicted, and Biden has ramped up, it is clear that we dodged catastrophes in 2000 and 2004 and that even though Bush was a worthless, useless President, he didn’t intentionally destroy the USA, as Biden is surely doing.

Here is an observation regarding Democrats and Republicans... Many Republicans look back on the Bushes, Romney, and McCain and realize they were mistakes. When Democrats look back on Obama, the Clintons, Gore, Kerry, and Carter, they still hold them in high regard. Republicans acknowledge their mistakes. Democrats do not. As for George W Bush, he doesn't get it, and never will. The Republican party is absolutely required to provide an alternative to the Democrats. When they don't they are worthless. Those that don't vote democrat do so primarily because they disagree with their policies. When the republicans provide real policy alternatives, those people will vote republican. When the Republicans fail to offer an alternative, those people either sit out or vote Democrats since there is no difference. Bush needs to wise up, but he never will. He really is a Democrat, but being from Texas he ran as a Republican so he would win.

Heading into the May 18 primary that will likely decide Philadelphia’s municipal elections, George Soros-backed District Attorney Larry Krasner is facing voters who are deeply concerned about soaring crime and homicide rates, a new poll finds. The poll of likely Democratic voters in the overwhelmingly Democratic city found nearly half—48%—named public safety and the homicide rate as an unprompted answer to Philadelphia’s most pressing concern. “That’s a really big deal,” said Jim Lee of Susquehanna Polling and Research, which conducted the survey.(Snip) The poll also found Mr. Krasner’s support to be lukewarm among Philadelphia’s Black voters who account for a disproportionately

The churn of Philadelphia’s Democratic primary for district attorney continued a chilling turn Tuesday, with a Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream founder’s frosty response to the police union and Mister Softee. The Fraternal Order of Police dealt the first cold blow Friday to District Attorney Larry Krasner, parking a Mister Softee truck in front of his office to cast him as “soft on crime.” The union passed out free soft-serve cones and asked people to support Krasner’s Democratic challenger, longtime homicide prosecutor Carlos Vega. Ben Cohen, a Krasner supporter, offered this biting reply Tuesday, accusing the FOP of opposing Krasner because he holds police officers accountable.

Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana have sued the Biden administration over a mandate in the American Rescue Plan that they say prevents states from cutting taxes. The states, led by Texas, argue the federal government is violating the constitution by prohibiting states that receive federal COVID-19 aid from using the money to “directly or indirectly” offset tax revenue reduction. “This is yet another attempt by the federal government to unlawfully exert control over how sovereign states operate,” said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. “While hiding behind a deceptively friendly name, the Act effectively removes Texas’ ability to lower taxes while granting Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen

Washington—The Treasury Department says it will employ measures to avoid an unprecedented default on the national debt this summer, but officials say those measures could be exhausted “much more quickly” than normal given the unusual circumstances of the global pandemic. Treasury officials on Wednesday urged Congress to pass either a new borrowing limit or another suspension of the debt before a July 31 deadline. The Treasury will continue to initiate the types of bookkeeping maneuvers it has used in the past to keep the government from breaching a level that would trigger a default on the massive national debt. “In light of the substantial COVID-related

Council enacted sweeping police reforms last summer.(Snip) In Baltimore, the department has lost nearly 300 officers since last year, leaving detectives “overwhelmed with their caseload because they, too, are short-staffed,” said the leader of the local

Pfizer said Tuesday it expects to do $26 billion in sales this year from its two-shot COVID-19 vaccine alone. That’s up more than 70 percent from its last forecast, largely thanks to new contracts signed with countries struggling to get their hands on vaccine doses. The estimate assumes that Pfizer will deliver 1.6 billion doses of its COVID-19 vaccine in 2021.(Snip)“Based on what we’ve seen, we believe that a durable demand for our COVID-19 vaccine—similar to that of the flu vaccines—is a likely outcome,” CEO Albert Bourla said on a conference call with investors.

What The Frapp? Dripping in extra whipped cream, caramel syrup drizzle, pumps of cinnamon dulce and honey, five bananas and more—this sticky, tricky Starbucks order has social media percolating.(Snip)“This order comes in every other week,” a fellow Starbucks staffer tweeted, empathizing with Josie via a picture of a Green Tea Creme Frappuccino with 29 supplementary specifications. “I raise you this,” another coffee maker carped alongside a flick of a Caffè Misto with over 30 additional demands. And customers who are waiting behind the “Edwards” of the world aren’t fond of the TikTok coffee craze either. “I was behind a woman who had an order

Seattle—There’s a suspected mail thief operating in West Seattle. The victims know his name. So do the police, the post office and prosecutors. He's been arrested seven times since Jan. 7 and each time, he was released from jail, sometimes within 48 hours after his arrest. His name is Jason Turner and his case is another example of a suspected repeat offender falling through the cracks of the criminal justice system, leaving everyone who touches his case frustrated.(Snip) “When you've arrested someone multiple times for the same crime, it's extremely frustrating," said Sgt Randy Huserik of the Seattle Police Department.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday that US efforts to free Americans detained in Iran are “separate” from negotiations to curb the country’s nuclear program. Psaki said the issues aren’t linked after the US denied an Iran state media report that the US will unfreeze $7 billion in Iranian assets for the release of four Americans. Four Iranians also would be freed. “Our policy as the US government has not changed on ransom. But I will tell you that discussions to bring home Americans who are held in Iran are something that are raised — that is raised at the highest level

Washington The Biden administration is considering using outside firms to track extremist chatter by Americans online, an effort that would expand the government's ability to gather intelligence but could draw criticism over surveillance of US citizens. The Department of Homeland Security is limited in how it can monitor citizens online without justification and is banned from activities like assuming false identities to gain access to private messaging apps used by extremist groups such as the Proud Boys or Oath Keepers. Instead, federal authorities can only browse through unprotected information

Appearing Sunday on MSNBC, Mr. Nye, who hosts the podcast "Science Rules! with Bill Nye,” was asked by anchor Mehdi Hasan how "irresponsible” and "deadly” he finds the "anti-vax message” pushed by conservatives like Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson.(Snip)"Now, I've noticed that people don't like to use the word 'mutate,' because that's associated with evolution, the facts of life, we'll use the word 'variant.'

White House press secretary Jen Psaki believes President Biden deserves credit for how he has handled the border and blamed Donald Trump for the migrant surge and the overflowing immigration system. 'After four years of an immigration system rooted in destructive and chaotic policies, President Biden is taking the challenge head on and building a fair, orderly and human immigration system,' the White House press secretary said at the top of her briefing. Psaki launched into a list of accomplishments related to the crisis, including Customs and Border Protection (CBP) nearly doubling their rate processing unaccompanied minor migrants and working to reunify families.

Bill and Melinda Gates have had a decades-long agreement that the Microsoft boss could vacation for a long weekend at the beach every year with his venture capitalist ex-girlfriend. The odd arrangement raises eyebrows now that one of the richest couples in the world are going their separate ways after 27 years together and building a $130billion fortune. Bill, 65, and venture capitalist Ann Winblad, 70, dated in the 80s but broke up in 1987, the same year he met future wife Melinda. Ann was reportedly more ready for marriage than Bill as he worked day and night to build his billion-dollar Microsoft empire.

Failed special election Democrat candidate Jana Lynne Sanchez has sounded the alarm that 2022 “could be a major setback” for Democrats if they lose their slim majority in the House of Representatives. Sanchez, after not receiving enough votes last Saturday to make the special election runoff, has a very strong message for the Democrats. Sanchez lost by fewer than 400 votes to come in third place. Republican candidates did extremely well, edging out the rest of the field. Sanchez said the Republicans received an overwhelming majority (62 percent) of the total voters. Sanchez continued to say, “all the things I thought would have motivated Democrats” to come and vote failed.

We are not a social impact company,” Fried added, encouraging employees to focus on their jobs rather than politics while in the workplace.
