'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.

A group of gay police officers is barred from marching in next year’s annual Pride parade, the police organization’s leaders said Friday. New York City Pride has told the NYPD’s Gay Officers Action League that it is not welcome in the parade, said Det. Brian Downey, president of the police group. NYC Pride had been expected to announce the Gay Officers Action League’s exclusion from the parade early next week. But GOAL preempted that announcement by issuing a news release on Friday night—and it referred to parts of the NYC Pride statement on its exclusion that have not been released yet.

Bentonville, Ark.—Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, said Friday that it won’t require vaccinated shoppers or workers to wear a mask in its U.S. stores unless state or local laws say otherwise. Vaccinated shoppers can go maskless immediately, the company said. Vaccinated workers can stop wearing them on Tuesday. As an incentive, Walmart said it is offering workers $75 if they prove they’ve been vaccinated. Customers won’t be asked but rather held to an “honor system” regarding their vaccination status, Walmart said. Workers, however, will need to answer “yes” to a vaccination question in a daily health assessment in order to go maskless,

A statue of Jesus was smashed and an American flag burned outside a Catholic church in Brooklyn—in what cops are calling a possible hate crime. The incident occurred around 10 p.m. Thursday when an unknown person hopped the fence at St. Athanasius Church on Bay Parkway at 61st Street in Bensonhurst, police said. The vandal pushed over a statue of Jesus’s crucifixion, breaking it into pieces, and torched an American flag hanging outside the rectory, according to cops.(Snip) The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is looking into the incident. “This was truly an act of hatred, and today is the saddest day

Four people were attacked in 11 minutes at three different stops along a Brooklyn-bound 4-train Friday morning. Between 4:26am and 4:37am, NYPD said two to three men punched and slashed four people, stole money and wallets, and, in at least one attack, threw someone's cell phone on tracks so the victim couldn't call 911. All four were taken to hospitals with non life-threatening injuries, according to the NYPD.(Snip) Sarah Feinberg, interim MTA president, and the Transport Workers Union, which represents 60,000 workers in the NYS, blamed the mayor for creating this culture of violence in the subways.

Unvaccinated children still need to wear masks when playing with friends, especially while indoors, Dr. Anthony Fauci insisted Friday. The recommendation from the country’s top infectious disease expert came just hours after the CDC eased its mask guidance for fully vaccinated Americans, saying they can stop wearing masks and practicing social distancing in most settings. But Fauci said in his first interview following Thursday’s announcement that youngsters should continue to take precautions such as wearing a mask to protect themselves against COVID-19.(Snip) Fauci noted that children ages 12 through 15 are now eligible to get vaccinated with Pfizer’s shot

New charts reveals exactly how Joe Biden's inauguration triggered a surge of immigrants arriving at the southern border, despite repeated claims from administration officials that they inherited a broken system. The graphs—showing that border detentions and child arrivals dropped to their lowest level in years at the end of 2020 before rocketing as soon as Biden took office—derailed efforts by the top U.S. homeland security official to deliver a rosy message when he appeared before senators on Thursday. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was forced on the defensive after Sen. Ron Johnson produced his dramatic red chart displaying 'border apprehensions.'

Disney has reportedly deleted its “diversity and inclusion” anti-racism training program following a backlash about it becoming the “wokest place on Earth.” The webpage that previously carried the much-maligned internal training documents was down this week, replaced with a “pardon our Pixie dust” message, according to Christopher Rufo, who first reported on the training forcing staff to recognize their “white privilege.”(Snip) “Disney was peddling the most toxic elements of critical race theory—and my reporting led to immediate changes within the company,” he said. His screenshot, however, showed that the page was “currently under technical maintenance for approximately 72 hours”

The New York Yankees now have seven confirmed cases of coronavirus among coaches and staff—a surprising fact given that all of the infected personnel have been vaccinated. Pitching coach Matt Blake was the latest to be diagnosed with COVID-19, following third-base coach Phil Nevin, first-base coach Reggie Willits, and four unidentified staffers. All seven received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which requires only a single shot, as opposed to the two-injection vaccines from pharmaceutical companies like Moderna and Pfizer. New York shortstop Gleyber Torres has not tested positive, but was held out of Wednesday's 1-0 win in Tampa

A uniformed NYPD cop was shot three times—including once in the bulletproof vest—during a shootout with a known gang member in Brooklyn on Wednesday night, police said. The incident unfolded around 11:15 p.m. at Macon Street and Howard Avenue in Bushwick, when two police officers and a sergeant assigned to the 81st Precinct were inside an unmarked car when they spotted a man “walking briskly” and “blading his body,” Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said at a morning press conference. The officers got out of the car to investigate—at which time the man pulled “a firearm, turns on the officers and begins to shoot

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has a plan for getting the Big Apple fully vaccinated: french fries and burgers. The Democrat touted a partnership with Shake Shack that uses greasy treats to get people in line for COVID-19 shots. “I want you to look at this and think about, again, some people love hamburgers, some don’t. I really want to respect all ways of life, but if this is appealing to you, just think of this when you think of vaccination,” Mr. de Blasio said during a Thursday press conference.(Snip) “Mmm, vaccination,” the mayor added while biting into a burger.

Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick is one the finest books ever written for many reasons, but the main theme is obsession. The captain of the whale ship Pequod is obsessed with hunting down and killing the white whale, the giant mammal that cost the captain his leg. Despite his having lost the last battle with the whale, Ahab is filled with a terrible resolve that is frustrated by his megalomania, his hubris and overconfidence. (snip) Doesn’t that character description sound exactly like Liz Cheney, just-ousted from her House GOP Caucus leadership slot? She is obsessed, overconfident and hubristic to the point of insanity.

According to Bush, who serves as Texas Land Commissioner, Cheney should have been less focused on former President Donald Trump and more concerned with President Joe Biden and the advancements his administration has made. “So instead of training fire on the President, she really should have been firing on Biden and that agenda…that’s what you want out of your leadership, & unfortunately…she didn’t rise to the challenge,” Bush added. Bush is also the nephew of former President George W. Bush, who worked alongside Cheney’s father, former Vice President Dick Cheney.

President Joe Biden reportedly has a very short fuse and a tendency to go on profanity-laced tirades at his staff, according to a report from the New York Times. You know things are bad when even the Times has to acknowledge it. The newspaper spoke to over two dozen current and former Biden staffers, who painted a portrait of a “president with a short fuse, who is obsessed with getting the details right – sometimes to a fault.”

Joe Biden wants to present this image of himself as the congenial moderate who wants to unify everyone. As we’ve seen so far, his first few months have been anything but. It’s apparently not great for the folks working with him behind the scenes either. As we saw during the campaign, Biden lost his temper multiple times with voters and reporters, two groups you would think you’d be trying to court while you’re running, not yell or scream at. He called one girl a “dog-faced pony soldier,” insulted another man with “Look, fat,” even challenged a voter to “go outside” and told him that he was

It’s about time.U.S. Representative Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.) prompted outrage this week following his remarks during a congressional hearing on the events of January 6, 2021. Clyde, along with several Republican House members, is finally pushing back on the Democrats’ allegedly unassailable narrative about what happened that day. The roughly four-hour disturbance at the Capitol, as I’ve covered for months, is being weaponized not only against Donald Trump but also hundreds of nonviolent Americans who traveled to their nation’s capital to protest the final certification of a fraudulent presidential election. Big Tech used the so-called “attack” on the Capitol as an excuse to achieve its long-sought-after goal to deplatform the former president;

Congresswoman Liz Cheney lectured Fox News host Bret Baier on Thursday in a heated interview about her ouster from the GOP leadership, and the importance of Americans knowing that the 2020 presidential election wasn't stolen. The Wyoming Republican said that Fox News had an "obligation" to make sure viewers knew a second term in the White House wasn't stolen from former President Donald Trump in November last year as Baier defended the network. Fox News hosts, including Baier, have previously pushed back on guests trying to cast doubt over the 2020 election result. The network also ran a package debunking

Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy went into the weekend on a bang, hammering the Biden administration during Friday’s briefing about the sudden change no longer requiring vaccinated people to mask or socially distance indoors and outdoors. Specifically, he wondered what the “big breakthrough” was since President Biden had said in March that such a change was “Neanderthal thinking.”Doocy first told Press Secretary Jen Psaki there’s been “a lot of questions about the timing of the CDC’s announcement yesterday,” so he first wanted to know whether anyone on Team Biden had the update done out of “political reasons.”

Just after midnight on Friday morning, Israel announced that "air and ground forces from the IDF are now attacking in Gaza. More details to follow." The military columnists in Israel understood that this meant the armored corps and artillery deployed near Gaza will attack, but the unclear notice led foreign reporters to report the beginning of a ground operation in Gaza. Now it has been clarified that the unclear announcement was a planned trick by the IDF to eliminate a large number of Hamas terrorists within a short time.

Trader Joe’s said it will allow fully vaccinated persons to go maskless in stores, while places like Home Depot, Target and Starbucks say customers should still cover up for now. CVS and Walgreens, top pharmacies that offer the COVID-19 vaccine, haven’t changed their mask policies but they’re taking a second look and said they will be guided by the safety of their workers and customers. “As a destination for COVID vaccine and testing we have decided to keep our current face-covering policy in place for the time being,” said Walgreens spokesman Fraser Engerman.(Snip) Some things changed overnight, with President Biden roaming

The criminal hacking group that took down Colonial Pipeline, causing debilitating fuel shortages on the East Coast, has said in a message that it is shutting down after facing pressure from the U.S. government. “In view of the above and due to the pressure from the US, the affiliate program is closed. Stay safe and good luck,” the group said in a message sent Thursday to partners in its ransomware business, according to a blog post by Intel471, a cybercrime intelligence firm. But some security experts warned the group may just be trying to take its money and run,

The Biden administration seems to be proud of its inflation surge, brought on by low interest rates and monster government spending. How else to explain this? According to the White House transcript, Psaki, answering a reporter's inflation question, said: Obviously, we’ve seen, over the last couple of days — to your point — some reaction to the CPI numbers that came out just yesterday. And, you know, our view on that is it reflects the reality of an economy that’s rapidly turning back on because of a successful economic strategy. And if you dig into the data, there are a couple of

The United State’s capital is nearly dry of gasoline Friday morning while states such as North Carolina and Virginia are also struggling, according to recent data. According to GasBuddy data posted at 9:33 a.m. ET, D.C. is experiencing an 88 percent outage, with North Carolina at 67 percent, and Virginia at 50 percent. The Colonial Pipeline’s recent ransomware attack and ensuing concerns about gas prices have contributed to a fuel shortage on the East Coast, Breitbart News reported Tuesday. “Colonial Pipeline, a critical source of fuel on the East Coast of the United States, shut down its operations on Friday after the cyberattack, prompting concern
