With George W. Bush's Record, Never Again will a 'BUSH' become President

  The failed presidency of George W. Bush, the U.S. 43rd President, now comes to haunt the Republican wanna-be for president. Jeb Bush ignorantly wants to be the 45th president, thinking that he has a chance to be the 3rd person with the name of Bush to be President of the United States. It didn't take long for many to realize that all the money in the world could not help him but he continues to run. He owns the name of Bush, and in fact IS the brother of George W. Bush, one of the most failed presidents in U.S. history. To date, Jeb has spent more than any other candidate, almost as much as all of the other candidates combined. Still, he is in single digits when it comes to voter support in every poll. He is trying very hard to gain recognition in the polls, but the Republican supporters want somebody different, an outsider, someone who is not 'politically correct'. They seem to have no where to go except to now follow Donald Trump. The Republicans may have had a chance to regain the White House, but the party seems to continuously try to destroy itself, some in an attempt to support anyone who holds the last name of Bush which is a big mistake. The Bush ego continues to shine, as the candidate realizes that he cannot win, but he continues to try and challenge the front line candidate - Donald Trump, another mistake. Neither candidate has a chance to win the White House.
   Even George W. Bush would admit for what we know now, that he would not have invaded Iraq. Thousands of U.S. soldiers died because of his decision to attack Iraq.  The war is widely accepted to have been a disastrous mistake, but what is more disastrous is the fact that George W. Bush ignored numerous warnings of a major terrorist plot, leading up to September 11, 2001. He continued to make one mistake after another, even fooling the American people for his intentions to invade Iraq. In a special televised report, it was stated that George W. Bush's intention to invade Iraq is because he wanted to take the country's oil. Many people are not aware of that.  Yes, he was a newly elected president, but he did absolutely nothing to help prevent such an attack on the mainland of the United States. He continued to only take advise from his ill-informed advisers.
   In the Republican field of contestants today now running for the nomination of President to replace Barack Obama in 2016, one of the candidates named Donald Trump, now leading in the polls, openly states in an interview on October 16, 2015 said " When you talk about George W. Bush--I mean, say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time."
   Jeb Bush obviously heard these comments by Donald Trump at a debate, after Jeb had said, "We were attacked, my brother kept us safe." Really?!@/@!?%/@/$!. How did he keep Americans safe when the Twin Towers came down?  How many lives were lost?
  How could he keep America safe when all he wanted to do was to take vacations. Yes, George W. Bush took more vacation time than ANY other President in modern history. A CBS White House reporter named Mark Knoller stated in a tweet on August 8, 2014, that Obama had taken 19 vacations totaling 125 days by August last year. But now let's compare with George W. Bush. The Republican president took at least 65 combined trips to his Texas ranch and his parents' home in Kennebunkport, Maine, which totaled 407 days at the same point in his presidency. Not included in this data are trips to the Camp David presidential retreat in western Maryland, which Knoller doesn’t count as "vacation." Knoller told Yahoo! News that, through Aug. 12, 2014, Obama had made 33 visits to Camp David for all or part of 84 days, while Bush had been there 108 times for all or part of 341 days. President Bush spent at least 20% of his presidency vacationing at the Crawford ranch.
  So what does this data prove? It displays a totally different leadership style between Obama and George W. Some of the late-night comics said that this symbolized a lackadaisical approach to the world's most important day job, an impression bolstered by Bush's periodic two-hour midday exercise sessions and his disinclination to work nights or weekends. Now, the last noted fact here is disastrous to George W Bush. He spend at least a month at the ranch shortly before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, when critics assert he could have been more attentive to warning signs. Yes, even at the ranch, George W. did receive national security briefings, had to sign documents, hold teleconferences with aides and military commanders, and even meet with foreign leaders, but he did this in the midst of taking vacation upon vacation at his ranch.

Enhanced Interrogation (TORTURE) Report Now Released

The Senate Intelligence Committee released the "Interrogation Report", otherwise known as "The Torture Report".

In an exclusive interview on December 9, 2014, Michael Hirsh of "Politico", asked Bush's former CIA director some questions. One of them is the following question, quoted out of that same "Politico" article, dated December 9, 2014, that can be found at the following URL...  .....

"According to CIA records, it concludes, no CIA officer including Directors George Tenet and Porter Goss briefed the president on the specific enhanced interrogation techniques before April 2006. Is that true?"
Michael Hayden: "It is not. The president personally approved the water-boarding of Abu Zubaydah [in 2002]. It’s in his book! What happened here is that the White House refused to give them [the Senate Intelligence Committee] White House documents based upon the separation of powers and executive privilege. That’s not in their report, but all of that proves that there was dialogue was going on with the White House. What I can say is that the president never knew where the [black] sites were. That’s the only fact I’m aware that he didn't know."

So it is George W. Bush's own CIA director that claims that the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush did know of the torture techniques, and he knew about everything except where the "black sites" were. The black sites are now known to be located all across the world. How would the leader of the United States not know? The fact is what Michael Hayden is saying MUST be correct. He is going on record stating the facts. Vice President Dick Cheney and the President himself condones torture as legal and just. The vice president has recently been quoted that if he were to do it over again, he would gladly do it. President Bush mentioned how he condoned the torture techniques in his book.

What were the techniques?  Here is a list of highlights of the torture techniques. Immediately to follow is the abbreviated version of a several thousand page document that took over 6 years to accumulate and declassify for the public to read.

Here are the points the report makes, according to its summary:

#1: The CIA's use of its enhanced interrogation techniques was not an effective means of acquiring intelligence or gaining cooperation from detainees.

#2: The CIA's justification for the use of its enhanced interrogation techniques rested on inaccurate claims of their effectiveness.

#3: The interrogations of CIA detainees were brutal and far worse than the CIA represented to policymakers and others.

#4: The conditions of confinement for CIA detainees were harsher than the CIA had represented to policymakers and others.

#5: The CIA repeatedly provided inaccurate information to the Department of Justice, impeding a proper legal analysis of the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program.

#6: The CIA has actively avoided or impeded congressional oversight of the program.

#7: The CIA impeded effective White House oversight and decision-making.

#8: The CIA's operation and management of the program complicated, and in some cases impeded, the national security missions of other Executive Branch agencies.

#9; The CIA impeded oversight by the CIA's Office of Inspector General.

#10: The CIA coordinated the release of classified information to the media, including inaccurate information concerning the effectiveness of the CIA's enhanced interrogation techniques.

#11: The CIA was unprepared as it began operating its Detention and Interrogation Program more than six months after being granted detention authorities.

#12: The CIA's management and operation of its Detention and Interrogation Program was deeply flawed throughout the program's duration, particularly so in 2002 and early 2003.

#13: Two contract psychologists devised the CIA's enhanced interrogation techniques and played a central role in the operation, assessments, and management of the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program. By 2005, the CIA had overwhelmingly outsourced operations related to the program.

#14: CIA detainees were subjected to coercive interrogation techniques that had not been approved by the Department of Justice or had not been authorized by CIA Headquarters.

#15: The CIA did not conduct a comprehensive or accurate accounting of the number of individuals it detained, and held individuals who did not meet the legal standard for detention. The CIA's claims about the number of detainees held and subjected to its enhanced Interrogation techniques were inaccurate.

#16: The CIA failed to adequately evaluate the effectiveness of its enhanced interrogation techniques.

#17: The CIA rarely reprimanded or held personnel accountable for serious and significant violations, inappropriate activities, and systemic and individual management failures.

#18: The CIA marginalized and ignored numerous internal critiques, criticisms, and objections concerning the operation and management of the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program.

#19: The CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program was inherently unsustainable and had effectively ended by 2006 due to unauthorized press disclosures, reduced cooperation from other nations, and legal and oversight concerns.

#20: The CIA's Detention and Interrogation Program damaged the United States' standing in the world, and resulted in other significant monetary and non-monetary costs.

At the conclusion of the report, regardless of what was found, President Obama and legal consul has decided not to prosecute George W. Bush, or Dick Cheney, or the CIA Director Micael Hayden. This may be true for the moment, but there will be some lawsuits on indictments to follow such a report as this, as someone has to be accountable for what has happened. In my book, it should start at the top, indicting George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, because both of these people were ultimately  responsible for everything that happened in the military.

FACTs ABOUT GEORGE W. BUSH, our 43rd President of the United States

HERE IS A FACT ABOUT GEORGE W. BUSH, our 43rd President of the United States....

The present civil war within IRAQ is a direct result of President George W. Bush's involvement in destroying the Saddam Hussein regime in an attempt to gain access to billions of barrels of oil to be exported back to the United States. Not too many people know that fact.  In a recent report by Rachael Maddow listed in my previous story, these facts are now known. Now because of unrest that Bush initiated years ago, ISIS or ISUL is now killing innocent Iraqi's throughout-the country. If George W. Bush did not intervene in his war in Iraq, ISUS would have never gained power in the country. We have George W Bush to thank for, for the atrocities that are happening today.
The prior president who wants the world to forget what he is responsible for, the killing of over 4,000 Americans in the foreign country of Iraq, hides from the truth like a scared sheep. He refuses to defend his action in Iraq, and continues to live a life as a previous President in riches and wealth that he does not deserve. He lives for the world to forget what he has done, thinking that future generations will think of him in a more positive light.
How can this man sleep at night? Does he care that under his PONTUS direction, that he sent thousands upon thousands of American solders into harms way for his entire Presidency, and is responsible for their deaths. If it weren't for his direction, these American soldiers would be living. President Bush has forever destroyed thousands of American families just for his sickness to proclaim war on the world. What right did he have to con so many Americans into thinking that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction? How could such a man so deceptively win election, let alone re-election in America as our President. How could he fool so many? I am ashamed of being a citizen of a country with a tyrant President such as him. President George W. Bush is as guilty as Saddam Hussein himself, along with his vice President Dick Chaney, who condoned unjust punishments of torture. Thank God that our present President, Barack Obama will never condone torture on anyone, not even our worst enemies.
The phrase, "do unto others, as others shall do unto you" is what should happen to George W. Bush. Has he ever been tortured? No. Has he ever served in the military, under any President who put his troops into war? Absolutely not, and in matter of fact, George W. Bush did everything possible to stay out of the service, and he received a specialized deferment just so that he would not have to go into the military.

That my friends of this blog is what our past president is all about.

The Real Reason for the Iraq War

As reported for the first time yesterday, March 6, 2014, Rachel Maddow, a commentator from MSNBC, outlined what was to be the real reason for the Iraq War, in her commentary "Why We Did It". People just need to know the truth. Who would have thought that the story would begin with the activity in N. Korea. As reported, on October 9, 2006, seismic recorders recorded what was thought to be an earthquake, located in North Korea. What it turned out to be was an underground nuclear test by North Korea. Our secret intelligence was caught off guard, as North Korea just set off its first nuclear bomb. It is important to note that President Bush didn't see a need to disarm that country,  as there was no move by the U.S. to do so. Even after the actions of of Osama bin Laden for the 9/11 attack on Sept. 11 2001, the United States did not directly go and seek out whom was considered now the number one terrorist in the world. The President and Vice President repeatedly said that they could not find the very elusive terrorist.
Instead, the United States under false pretenses made a premeditated attack on Iraq. So what was the reason? Was Osama bin Laden in Iraq? What people didn't recognize is the fact that even prior to Sept. 11 2001, the United States led by George W. Bush had been working on something totally outside the scope of seeking out terrorists, even though central intelligence reports showed increased activity by Osama bin Laden, and intelligence gathered that Osama bin Laden was planning an attack on America.
The President of the United States, along with the Vice-President of the United States, Dick Cheney, were more interested in Iraq, and purposely hid secrets concerning their real objectives for attacking Iraq. The Secretary of Defense at the time Donald Rumsfeld, serving under George W. Bush, purposely hid secrets from the United States Congress, along with the President and Vice President. What they claimed was the immediate issue was the fact that Saddam Hussein, the reining president of the time in Iraq, was producing and stockpiling weapons of mass destruction. Was that true? It was proven after the U.S. attack on Iraq that Saddam Hussein did not have any weapons of mass destruction. So what just happened was that the United States started a war under false pretense and went through one of the longest wars in U.S. history.
So what is this hidden secret? Behind closed doors, not even privy to the U.S. Congress, the President, Vice President and Secretary of Defense along with a few select others who are not important to this story, were secretly figuring out a way to take over the Iraq oil fields. The very rich reserves of oil in the country of Iraq proved to be of very high interest to oil billionaire George W. Bush from Texas. An oil company called Halliburton, had two major headquarters, one in Dubai, and another in Houston, Texas. David J Lesar has been CEO of Halliburton (HAL) for 12 years. Mr. Lesar has been with the company for 19 years. The 59 year old executive ranks 8 within Oil & Gas Operations. His prior boss was Dick Cheney. So here you have it, two Texas Oil men, George W. Bush and David Lesar worked in Texas with oil. In September of 2000, the price of oil kept climbing, affecting the United States, especially with global energy demand on the rise. The U.S. dependence of foreign oil hit an all-time high. Just before becoming the President, George W. Bush was interviewed and ran for President with the premise that foreign oil was going to be a big problem for his administration. The President met in Houston, and plans to take over Iraqi oil were made. The President had secret meetings with Haliburton, just before the insurgence into Iraq. Not known at the time by the American people, plans were being made to secure oil fields in that country.
When George W. Bush became President, he immediately began to try and find a way to work on the foreign oil issue. He determined that what better way to get allot of oil if the United States were to take it from Iraq. Not long after his election as President, the attack of the World Trade Center took place on Sept. 11 2001, and now the President  found a reason to enter Iraq and get approval from Congress to do so. His claim, to attack Saddam Hussein, because he had weapons of mass destruction. What we know now is that this was a lie, as he involved the United States in a foreign war. He became directly responsible for thousands of U.S. lives lost on foreign soil. The sad thing about the war is that we were not hunting for Osama bin Laden, but used Saddam Hussein as a scapegoat with weapons of mass destruction, just so that we could enter Iraq and secure the oil fields. Ultimately by securing the oil fields, the production of oil greatly increased from Iraq. But was it worth the invasion of Iraq, and the loss of so many American lives, along with the innocent citizens of this country that were caught up in a war started by the United States? The unnecessary loss of American soldiers lives because of President Bush's selfish and greedy interests makes him directly responsible for the lives of the thousands of dead Americans. Has the cost of oil gone down because of the attack on Iraq and increased production from the oil fields? Absolutely not, and in matter of fact, the oil prices have continued to go up.
President Bush claims that history will judge him over time in a more favorable light. He doesn't seem concerned on what people think of him now. All that I plan to do about it is publish articles like this to help bring to light what exactly happened during the Presidency of George W. Bush and how bad I consider him for America.
One thing is certain. If Democratic contender for President, Al Gore was to become president instead of George W. Bush, the Iraq war would have never happened. Thousands of American soldiers would be living today and the United States wouldn't have been the reason for so much death and destruction in the foreign country of Iraq. I say this because no American president of that time would have started a war in a foreign country just to secure oil fields. The United States was not being threatened by Saddam Hussein by weapons of mass destruction.

Immediately below is a video clip, narrated by Rachel Maddow of MSNBC in her commentary that was aired yesterday on her news station.

Below, Rachel offers a bit of a preview to The Daily Show's Jon Stewart.

Mr. Bush wants People to Forget Who He Truly Is

Mr. Bush thinks that trying to do something right in his life for others will correct what he has done in his. He is presently on a good will mission to poor people in far away lands. That is what is called wishful thinking. Readers of this blog may wonder why I'm so negative when it comes to Mr. Bush. Maybe I can shed some of the light here. He wants to be remembered as something else than what he truly is, even though he would not like to admit it. What is he? How about a murderer for starters because of all the innocent people that he killed, like members of our dead that were killed in the war because of him. Everyone was afraid of him, not knowing where he would strike next. He became a terrorist in his own right. How about other innocent people, like the people of these ravaged countries like in Iraq and Afghanistan, the same type of people he is now out and about in his mission, now in his sickening sympathetic effort to try and do something good for the kind of people that he killed.
The United States was involved in a war, I get that. Innocent people do get killed in battles. Actually in two wars, President Bush  put our troops into harms way. He is responsible for the thousands of innocent lives that have perished because of his actions. The truth is coming out, even before he is dead, even before the historians can tell us and our children about his legacy. The truth is already out that we, the United States should have NEVER been involved in those wars. The good that was done from them, does not even come close or even justify the means in which he took to accomplish his goals. He had no idea that it would draw our country in a war lasting a decade. What did he know? The secret intelligence at the time gave so many false readings on the state of foreign affairs, especially telling him that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. That is what he wanted to hear because he wanted to attack and he wanted to start a war.
Now the families of the sick and fallen of that war have to forever live with the fact that their loved one will be forever affected because of the war. Apparently he forgets about the past and what people overseas think of him. In an article by Ray McGovern, the title read, "George Bush Can't Travel Overseas for Fear of Arrest and Prosecution". Back then, highlighted in the article dated February 9, 2011, he avoided a flight and appearance in Geneva to avoid the risk of arrest on a torture complaint.  There it is, in plain sight, the leader of the free world afraid to travel to avoid arrest, just like Mr. Snowden. The difference between Bush and Snowden is that Bush got away with mass murder, and Mr. Snowden will be forever haunted by the U.S. government for leaking classified secret information to the world.  Mr. Snowden has to forever stay away from the United States in fear of getting arrested, but Bush can come and go as he pleases. As the article continues to read, "Doomed to become America's first better-stay-at-home former president". And how about another quote from the same article... "Remember, Mr. President, it was Richard Nixon who pronounced the principle of presidential impunity in his famous statement to interviewer David Frost. When the president does it, that means it's not illegal."

Bush Recent Interview with Robyn Curnow

In an interview with Robyn Curnow, president George W. Bush starts off explaining how Snowden has damaged the country.
But then he goes on explaining that he put protections in place to protect the country, meaning that he had allot to do with the ways and means of the government spying on other countries but he says it is done with the protection on peoples civil liberties. But then he again came out of his shell being very disrespectful not allowing Robyn Curnow to get her questions fully out before he breaks in and starts talking says that "The only time I cared was on election day".
Ok, what does that mean? That S.O.B president used the country, used our troops and then he brushes it off lightly by saying "I did what I did". "Ah, I know the spirit in which I did it."

 Just watch the video below and see how sick minded the 43rd president of the United States was by making comments as he did in this interview.

He sincerely believes that historians will be the best to judge him, and that time would be when he is dead. Well, I'm here as an American in the year 2013, and I believe that he needs to be judged now, before he is dead. Maybe he doesn't think I would be objective, and maybe not, but people who just want the truth and are not biased read this blog.

 The world is getting educated now, while he is living, and I hope that someday when historians recant the workings of President George W. Bush that he is still living to be able to read in print how it has been objectively decided that he was absolutely the worst president in U.S. History and that his is judged. I hope that the President lives to be 100 years old, just to make sure that he is living when he is judged, way before he is dead. He may be right by saying that it will take some time before objective historians judge him, or at least that is what he thinks in his mind. People who think objectively right now have the right to make their own judgments on this President right now and they most certainly will.

                         Robyn Curnow sits down with former President George W. Bush to discuss
                                                Edward Snowden and the legacy of his office.

A transcript of the interview is immediately below.

Curnow: Do you think he is a traitor? (Curnow asks Bush about Snowden)

Bush: I know he damaged the country. The Obama administration will deal with it.

Curnow: Do you think it is possible for one man to damage the security of the nation?

Bush: I think he damaged the security of the country.

Curnow: And when it comes to surveillance,(then rudely, George Bush interrupts Curnow...)

Bush: I put the program into place to protect the country. And one of the certainties is civil liberties is guaranteed.

Curnow: So you don't think there was a compromise between security and privacy?

Bush: I think that there needs to be a balance and I think as the president explained there must be a proper balance.

Curnow: No one criticized the Obama administration and that's something,  that you really made the decision?

Bush interrupts again: It doesn't do any good.  It's a hard job. He's got plenty on his agenda and ah, it's difficult, and a former president doesn't need to make it harder.

Then she asks him a question about polls and what people think.. He interupts and says..

Bush: I could care less. THe only time I really cared was on election day. Did I? I guess it's nice. Let me rephrase that. Thank you for bringing it up.

Curnow: You like the idea that people are perhaps looking at you differently?

Bush says... Ah, Ultimately history will judge, ah the decisions I've made, ah, I won't be around because it's going to take a while for the objective historians to show up.  So I'm pretty comfortable with it. I did what I did. Ah, I know the spirit in which I did it.

A Gread President He is NOT - George W. Bush is Already Judged

In a conversation with CNN just prior to the dedication of his new Presidential library, George W. Bush still does not openly admit that he really made mistakes starting the IRAQI war, nor does he believe that he was ultimately responsible for not supporting help and rescue plans during Hurricane Katrina that devastated New Orleans. Here is a man that follows the footsteps of his father, George H.W. Bush and became the 43rd President of the United States, and he now says in the CNN interview "History will ultimately judge the decisions that were made for Iraq and I'm just not going to be around to see the final verdict.". Then he says, "In other words, I'll be dead.". Also, stepping  back when he was president, George W. Bush staunchly supported his own form of terrorism, as he practiced a method called 'water-boarding' on his Iraqi prisoners. Everyone knows that the presidency of George W. Bush was a failure, and his right wing agenda and policies crippled the country, and during his two terms as president, he started a systematic bankruptcy of the country. The U.S. government, who had a surplus of money during the presidency of Bill Clinton, quickly evaporated when George W. Bush became president, and since, the deficit has grown to unbelievable proportions. Of course, the Republicans blame the Democrats for the money deficits, because President Obama had no choice than to spend money to try and bring the country back together again when in fact the country technically entered another depression era during the Bush presidency.
Appearently, George W. Bush doesn't read this blog, and if he has, he should realize that authors like me will never let the atrocities such as the ones he made as president ever go away. I'm not waiting for him to be judged after he is dead, as he puts it, to let people know how disastrous of a president he truly was.
What ultimately upset me about this man is that he threw the country in a war under false pretenses, explaining to the country that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. Of course as we know now, this is totally untrue. There never was one bit of evidence turned up in Iraq during the U.S. occupation in that country that proved at the slighted possibility that there ever was weapons of mass destruction in that country.
Thousands of American soldiers died in a war that they never should have participated in. Still George W. Bush doesn't feel guilty for their lives, and doesn't admit to wrongs. He blames the actions that were taken to invade Iraq due to inaccurate reports given to him by the CIA and FBI. But the fact is, George W. Bush knew there were no weapons of mass destruction there. His right hand man, the vice president of the United states at the time was Dick Chaney, and even still today, the vice-president openly admits that attacking Iraq was the right thing to do.
So it begs the question, why were we ever in Iraq? Cheney's answer is that we belonged in Iraq to get rid of Saddam Hussein, a president who had weapons of mass destruction, even though to this day that there never was an ounce of proof that there ever was weapons of mass destruction.
For the dedication today, accompanying George W. Bush and his father H.W., Presidents Obama, Carter and Clinton were on hand for the dedication for the George W. Bush library. 
I have just one thing to thank President George W. Bush for, and of course it is not for his service as president. I think that most will agree it's a presidency that everyone would like to forget. But for me, waking up to the extreme right wing thinking and ideology of Republicans and of George W. and Dick Cheney during his two terms of office, spurred me into openly supporting Democratic President Barrack Obama as I started writing the blog "Obama in the White House",immediately after Barrack's election in 2008.
As the saying goes, time fly's when you are having fun, and I just hope that someday I would soon forget the likings of such a failed president, George W. Bush.
