George Bush

George Bush

Jeb Bush may be on the #NeverTrump train, but another one in his family has decided to back Trump.

Jeb Bush’s son, has supported his father through the entire primary, but now is taking a very different stance than his father.

George P. Bush, a Texas land commissioner is backing Trump and going a step further.

The next generation of Bush’s is urging fellow Republicans to reconsider Trump and to give him the support he needs to defeat Hilary Clinton.

Bush was quoted during a meeting of Texas Republican activists.

“From Team Bush, it’s a bitter pill to swallow, but you know what? You get back up and you help the man that won, and you make sure that we stop Hillary Clinton.”

Donald Trump had some battles with Jeb during the primary.

It is reported that Jeb spent over $250 million during the primary, and majority of the money went to fighting Trump.

Jeb fell in the polls from leading the GOP back in the spring of 2015 to dropping out in February 2016.

It was a “tough pill to swallow” for the Bush family, that is an understatement. The public beating was especially embarrassing since the knockout punch came from a non-politician, Donald Trump.

By George P. Bush backing Trump, it possibly hints to another Bush that is working his way into the White House.

We don’t know if Jeb or his uncle George W. Bush will change their minds and follow the young Bush, but we’ll find out in the next 91 days.

Do you think Jeb will ever come around to endorsing Trump? Let us know in the comments below.

Guantanamo Bay

Surprise, surprise; one of the suspects arrested in connection with last week’s terrorist attacks in Turkey spent time at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The U.S. released him to his native Russia along with six other detainees who subsequently became known as the “Russian Taliban,” according to an alarming report published by a Washington D.C. think-tank that studies totalitarian societies of Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union.

One of the members of the so-called Russian Taliban, Airat Vakhitov, is among 30 people arrested by Turkish authorities in connection with the attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport that killed dozens and injured more than 100, a U.S. government-funded news service reports. Vakhitov spent two years at Gitmo after being captured by U.S. forces in Afghanistan in 2001, the news report says, and he’s one of 11 Russian citizens arrested in the last few days in connection with the Turkey attack, which was carried out by ISIS. “Russia’s security services have accused Vakhitov of fighting in Syria and Iraq alongside terrorist groups, as well as recruiting foreign fighters for IS and other groups, and raising funds for terrorists,” the news story says.

Judicial Watch tracked down Vakhitov’s Department of Defense (DOD) Gitmo file and it says he was born in Naberyozhnyj and traveled by train to Afghanistan where he was eventually arrested by the Taliban on suspicion of espionage. He was taken to Gitmo in mid-June, 2002 and was “cooperative” during his two-year stay. “Because of the Russian government’s agreement to incarcerate this detainee upon his transfer, and provided that he remains incarcerated under the control of the Russian government, the detainee poses no future threat to the U.S. or its allies,” the DOD file states. “In addition, the Russian government has agreed to share with the United States all intelligence derived from this detainee in the future.”

It’s not clear when Russia freed Vakhitov or if he was ever really incarcerated there after leaving Gitmo. An international human rights organizations claims Vakhitov and his fellow countrymen were tortured in Russia after leaving Gitmo in 2004. “Access to the ex-detainees is limited because three of them are in prison and the rest have either managed to leave the country or are in hiding,” the group writes in an announcement promoting a report blasting the U.S. for relying on Russia’s “diplomatic assurances” of fair treatment to justify sending Gitmo captives.

If Vakhitov was involved in the Turkey attack, he’s simply the latest of many Gitmo captives to reengage in terrorism after leaving the top security compound at the U.S. Naval base in southeast Cuba. Judicial Watch has reported on this for years, documenting specific cases based on intelligence reports. Earlier this year the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) disclosed that dozens have joined terrorist causes after begin released, including seven of the 144 captives freed by the Obama administration.

Of the 532 released under the George W. Bush administration (this includes Vakhitov), 111 eventually reengaged in extremist causes, the ODNI revealed. Just a few weeks ago Judicial Watch reported that a veteran Al Qaeda operative released from Gitmo to Uruguay in late 2014 has gone missing and authorities in Latin America believe he sneaked into Brazil after being denied legal entry. Keep in mind the summer Olympics are just weeks away in Brazil.

In one embarrassing case an Al Qaeda operative freed from Gitmo was subsequently placed by the U.S. government on a global terrorist list where a $5 million reward was offered for information on his whereabouts. The Saudi national, Ibrahim al-Rubaysh, was repatriated by the Bush administration in 2006 under a Saudi Arabian “rehabilitation” program that supposedly reformed Guantanamo Bay jihadists but instead serves as a training camp for future terrorists.

Ted Cruz

Where hustle’s the name of the game
And nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain
There’s been a load of compromisin’
On the road to my horizon
But I’m gonna be where the lights are shinin’ on me. . . Like a rhinestone cowboy

I can’t help it.

That song comes into my mind every time Ted Cruz appears on the television screen.

Growing up in Texas, that song was a reminder to never trust a Rhinestone Cowboy. Someone who just plays to the crowd and puts on a show for gain.

The thing is . . . Ted Cruz isn’t even good at it, yet too many Americans are falling for the gag.

A man who presents himself as a constitutional attorney but refuses to take an intellectually honest look at his own eligibility to be president should be the first indicator that the guy is a phony.

But that’s for those people who really think about the inner character of a man.

Other like to focus on the merely superficial traits of a man . . . somewhat believing it gets you to the core of a person at a glance.

For me, it’s that black belt with the silver buckle and flourishes that Creepy Cruz just can’t stop wearing.

Emblazoned with a lone star and made in a way that won’t allow a self-respecting man to establish a gig line for himself, Ted Cruz’s western-style belt is an attempt by the politician to appear to be “one of us.”

But seriously, who wears that belt with black ostrich boots and a flannel shirt?

While the outfit may be popular on glory-hole night at a backwoods gay bar in Alberta, Canada, it has no place under the paunch of a leading presidential contender.

Harsh? Yes. But someone has to say something.

Reagan and even George W. Bush could pull off the cowboy look. These men genuinely preferred to go out and clear brush on their property as a form of therapy.

They’d put on work clothes, break a sweat and put in real work.

Back at the office, they’d throw on just a touch of the West by keeping a set of polished boots on their tired feet.

Canada Cruz, on the other hand, has likely never spent time on a ranch other than for a quick photo opp of him posing with a gun.

The Texas senator needs to do himself, his state and his country a favor and dress like a the politician he is rather than the Rhinestone Cowboy he dreams to be.



When Comey, the director of the FBI decided not to charge Hillary Clinton, it looks like it had more to do with money than...
