Steele dossier

The executive director of the George W. Bush Institute, who organized a letter from presidential libraries calling for national unity, previously leaked the now-debunked Steele dossier to reporters during (the) height of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation. David Kramer, who worked in the State Department under President George W. Bush and was an associate of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), pushed for the foundations and centers of former presidents to sign a letter about unifying the country. However, in 2016 Kramer provided the Steele dossier to BuzzFeed, which published it without corroborating its allegations that then-President-elect Donald Trump was a puppet of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Doesn't surprise me that the Bush clan is affiliated with that dodgy dossier. Tom Fitton and James O'Keefe could do a lot for the country if they started digging into the elites of the swamp, especially the great grandparents. If not prosecution, then humiliation on the world stage for starters for all of them.

FTA: “ I stressed to every person I met the sensitivity of the document, the need to verify or refute it, and not to publish it," Kramer said.” Then why distribute it? This has to be one of the most disingenuous statements ever made. It’s like a mean girl telling a piece of juicy gossip with the caveat that it might not be true but she knows it’s just too good not to spread around. These people are not only irresponsible liars they are juvenile pukes while doing it. Furthermore, the fact that Kramer is connected to the Bush family does not surprise me. Birds of a feather. Wasn’t it little George W. who got us into the Iraq war under false pretenses?

The letter says, “Our elected officials must lead by example and govern effectively in ways that deliver for the American people,” Considering the performance of recent Presidents, this sounds like a ringing endorsement for President Trump.

When they told us that George W. Bush was stupid we should have listened. He turned against the country when little brother "low energy" Jeb was running for POTUS. The Bushies really thought that a trifecta was good for the country. As for McCain, his mind was warped by the Viet Cong so I'm inclined to give him somewhat of a break but not much. War is hell and he has the broken airplanes to prove it.

We are finding out Bush and the rest of the Republicans are complicit in many of the things the Democrats and the left are doing. Trump had to have kicked a few hornet's nests to get the response he got. We should make sure we know which hornet's nests they are and continue kicking them. Would guess illegal immigration is one. Another is foreign trade. Especially with China. Wouldn't surprise me if there are others. As for the unity letter, tyranny is unity for these people.

Many years ago, a friend who worked on 'black' missions for the CIA under Reagan and then got entangled in the criminal operations of the CIA, and they tried to shut him up forever warned me about never trusting the Bushes one bit more than the Clintons. This was in the 1990s and I was really wondering if he had just been given bad data. Now I discover that 30 years ago, my friend had the correct story. The Bushes are bad folks, and always have been. Unfortunately, they fooled us for far too long. Never again.

Bushies always talk out of both sides of their rear ends. They are examples of what Cicero was talking about: ........................................... A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.

A federal appeals court ruled against Mississippi’s permanent voting ban for certain felons, going against Supreme Court precedent in doing so. (snip) Judge Edith Jones countered in a dissenting opinion that the majority ruling itself contradicted the Constitution and reflected judicial activism. (snip) Jones also cited the Supreme Court precedent set in the 1974 case Richardson v. Ramirez, which determined that felon voting bans don’t violate the Equal Protection Clause. In that case, the court ruled that the question of handling voting rights for felons should be hashed out in a legislative forum, and that it wasn’t for their court to “choose one set of values over another.”

Cotton, an Army veteran, wrote to Austin: I write regarding the Department’s decision to incorporate ‘gender neutral’ language into decoration and award citations. Our military apparently will now use “themself”—which is not even a word, I hasten to add—instead of “himself” or “herself” to describe heroic or distinguished actions.

Because FBI agents mishandled their relationship with a key informant and the investigation into Morales, prosecutors dismissed the charges against him, according to the NYT.

Stephen King just published his most recent horror novel, Holly. Disappointing does not begin to describe it. Do not purchase Stephen King’s Holly if your goal is to be entertained. This book is a poisonous political diatribe from beginning to end. King, America’s premier storyteller of the past 50 years, has never hidden his left-wing political bias. But before the mess that is Holly, King kept himself in check, never making politics central to his story nor demonizing those who do not share his ideology by using fact patterns unmoored from any sort of reality. With Holly, King has jumped the shark.

Mayor Adams warned Saturday that all New York City agencies may have to slash up to 15% from their budgets by the spring in response to the ever-rocketing costs of the migrant crisis.

But if the city doesn’t get enough financial aid from the Biden administration or state legislators by early next year, Adams warned additional 5% cuts could come in both January and April. “The simple truth is that longtime New Yorkers and asylum seekers will feel

The Democratic mayor of a small Massachusetts city is urging state lawmakers to reform a 40-year-old “right-to-shelter” law that is putting immense strain on the area as thousands of migrant families arrive. Woburn mayor Scott Galvin said by Friday there were about 150 families living in the city’s hotels, an arrangement he called unsustainable for his 40,000 constituents. Under the 1983 right-to-shelter law, Massachusetts officials are legally required to offer housing to any homeless families seeking shelter in the state. The law now covers a rising influx of migrant families, although individuals are not covered under its provisions.
