    Well now, this is quite a quandary. I was raised to not speak ill of the dead, so I’ll keep my dignity and tradition.

    I highly recommend a 24/7 news blackout for at least 5 days. It will be nothing but a NWO uni-party bashing of our great president Donald J Trump. Take up…basket weaving, bird watching, decorate your house like Clark Griswald, rearrange your screws and nails bin, whittle…anything but watch the news.

      I turned on Fox and Friends this a.m. as I do every morning to use the program to do my back exercises which keep me walking if not running. I saw where GHWB had died. May he rest in peace and may his family find comfort in their grief. To live in hearts you leave behind is not to die. That said, I went to a Lou Dobbs rerun and watched that to exercise.

      I wish none of the Bushes ill, but the ill they visited on this country can never be repaired.

            I see Ross Perot differently. I see Perot as God’s giving us the first chance to save the country from NAFTA and the NWO of the Uniparty. That was 1992. We didnt listen. Sixteen years later when we were well on our way to Globalism and endless wars, he sent Ron Paul to challenge John McCain. McCain may well be a country hero but he was a traitor to the very issue that got him reelected –obamacare. We didnt listen. Eight years later, God sent us Donald Trump to save our sovereignty. This time we listened. Whether we waited too late to listen remains to be seen.

            • I was in Texas at the time and the people from the Perot staff who were quitting because of his horrendous temper convinced me that, in hindsight, we had someone quite similar to McCain. And where McCain hated conservatives and Trump, Perot loathed Bush and was paranoid.

              NOw knowing more about Herbert Walker it’s very confusing, but what I held on to was that Perot had a dangerously unchecked ego and a napoleon complex.

          • Of course POTUS had to be invited to the funeral. Even if the Bushes wanted to snub the current POTUS, they couldn’t do it by not inviting him without looking foolish themselves and diminishing the memory of GHWB. You see, GHWB was a former POTUS which means there is a stricter protocol for who gets invited and who other countries send to represent their countries at the funeral. He was a POTUS, so every country has to send their top delegation to the funeral. Countries with presidents will send their presidents, a prime minister or minister of Foreign Affairs alone will not do. The Netherlands will send King Willem-Alexander and probably the prime minister is allowed to tag along. The same for other reigning monarchs in Europe as well. The only exception is Queen Elizabeth of UK. She’s elderly and depending on her health she may choose to send Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales and next in line to the throne instead.

            If the USA did not send their A-list team i.e. POTUS and the First Lady to GHWB’s funeral, that would be a major snub from the Trump administration to GHWB in terms of protocol. The Bushes can’t have that.

              I hope for Bush’s sake that he is pardoned, though I don’t like him, but I REALLY hope that he repents because Our Father in Heaven wants every child He created to choose to come home to Heaven by truly repenting and begging for God’s mercy.

                Jesus said you can know a tree by its fruit. If George Sr. died as he lived then he is in Hell awaiting judgment. If he had a death bed salvation only God can know.

                Voltaire was a profuse opponent of Christianity and wrote a compendium against Christ and Christianity. He was perhaps the most fierce opponent of Christianity in his time. His nurse said that on his death bed he was in intense agony and cried out in horror; “Oh God, Oh Christ, lost and without hope and without Christ.” Very soon after that he died. The nurse who was attending Voltaire said that she would never want to be in the room with anyone ever again who died like he did.

                To me the horror of dying without hope in Jesus Christ is the greatest tragedy that anyone could ever experience. One millisecond after dying we realize that our position, whatever it is, is irreversible. For the unbeliever it is horror beyond expression. For the believer it is joy beyond expression. Almost 44 years ago I made the right choice and have never had a desire to look back. The peace that God gives through Christ is worth everything to me.

Bush 41 choked on tax increases. Bush 43 choked on Iraq. They both deserve to be judged by these clutch moments when they failed.

      Otherwise they were good Presidents. 43, particularly, does not get enough credit for NOT CHOKING during the economic meltdown. He did the right thing by infusing money into the banking system.

        Their desire to replace our Free Republic with globalization was evil and contrary to all that America stood for. Globalism is the slave market of mankind where control is absolute and personal freedom is taboo. It is the rule of a few elites over the masses and oppression of the masses without regard to their needs or desires. Anyone who espouses that system is evil and doesn’t have the best interests of mankind at heart.

        The Bush presidents both came out for a new world order as did Clinton and Obama. They worked hard for decades to change the landscape in America to prepare the way for Hillary to deal the final death blow to our nation. I can’t thank God enough that Hillary lost and Donald Trump won! America will be great again.

Any showing of goodness and decency may only have resulted from his advanced age – but for the most part, I view his life as that of a sociopath. CIA was running cocaine through Mena ARK while Bubba was gov. Bushes/Clintons were extremely close. Did he repent at some point and have a true ‘come to Jesus’ moment? Only the LORD knows. If not, he’s bound for the lake of fire for all eternity.

He went on to say that this New World Order would be enforced by armed soldiers of the United Nations. Exactly 10 years to the day of this speech, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, along with Building 7, would be intentionally destroyed in the greatest mass attack on the United States since Pearl Harbor. George H.W. Bush’s son, Marvin Bush, was in charge of security for the World Trade Center, while his other son, George W. Bush was president. ….”

      A career politician is not a good and decent man. The secrets that are disclosed to them as president, the secrets that we KNOW a former CIA head knew, would have been disclosed by a decent and good man.

      He and his son played the role of dignified heads of state after Obama was supposedly lambasting their legacies….but the possibility that this was all a game and they never took it seriously was confirmed when President Trump, who never slandered them as Obama did, was not spared their UNdignified, petty and uniparty undermining.

    The truth of the matter is that, with 20/20 vision, America has had a 50 years long stream of weak to catastrophic presidents. Chronologically :

    1. Hussein Zerobama – shouldn’t need to talk about. Domestically, just your regular commie organizer and rubble-rouser, Externally a feckless idiot. His smug incompetence is now legendary.

    2. W. Bush – hands down the worst president ever. If HusseinO was bad by his inaction, Bush 2 was a catastrophe by his actions. Suffice to say that if now millions of displaced Middle Easterners are destroying the Western Civilization, that’s due to this bumbling idiot globalist. Domestically he achieved nothing.

    3. Clinton – while credited for a great economy, that was in fact due to the end of cold war, the Internet bubble & Newt congress. Corrupt to the bones, he sold the country’s best interests to China. Rise of Al Qaeda on his watch. The 2008 meltdown was largely due to his policies.
    A worthy competitor of Bush2 for the “worst ever” title.

    4. HW Bush – a globalist puppet with a non-consequential presidency.

    5. Reagan – he’s been way over-rated by those who fall for words and style rather that substance. He’s credited by some for the fall of Soviet Union. Not even close. Soviet Union fell for other reasons : the egregious inefficiency of its system, the sponsoring of dozens of bankrupt commie countries, the Afghan war drain.
    Reagan’s amnesty of millions of illegals turned California blue and opened the gates for the inexorable destruction of American civilization. For that, we can call him a catastrophe.

    6. Carter – no need to talk about that feckless idiot.

    7. Ford – just 2 yrs. president, nothing there.

    8. Nixon – he was not that bad actually but didn’t bring any greatness either.

    9. Johnson – Yet another catastrophe. He basically started and lost the Vietnam war. His signing of the 1965 Immigration Act which enshrined chain-migration led to the slow but certain death of American civilization.

    So,
    W.Bush, Clinton, Johnson made catastrophic foreign policy mistakes. Their mistakes cannot be reversed.

    Reagan, Johnson – catastrophic domestic mistakes, as they relate to immigration which is the one NON-REVERSIBLE policy that changes the fabric of a society forever. Their mistakes cannot be reversed.

    HusseinO – he did both types of mistakes but due to his fecklessness he was never too bold to be catastrophic. His mistakes can, and are being reversed.

    The others don’t matter much.

        Superfly007, it was JOHNSON who totally screwed up Vietnam. Take a few minutes and search the internet for photos of Johnson, wearing his pajamas and robe, sitting at his desk late at night, handpicking the next day’s bombing targets for Vietnam. He was a micromanaging fool. We did and still have the best air superiority in the world. Johnson could have and should used those air assets to their full capabilities, instead of sending half a million of our troops to South Vietnam. Had Johnson done what Nixon did with Operation Linebacker I and Linebacker II, the war would have been over very quickly and the north would have surrender unconditionally. Instead, LBJ gave us Operation Rolling Thunder, three years of wasted air assets and manpower. Much of the bombing targets were bomb craters from previous bombing missions. When asked why he did that, he stated that it was to show North Vietnam that we had air superiority. They laughed at us while continuing to build up their air defenses that were effectively used to shoot down our pilots. Johnson was a weak president who worried more about one of our bombers hitting a Russian ship in the Haiphong Harbor, than he was about the US being in it to win it.

      Decent write-up. Chain migration has been a disaster, yes. All the foreign wars have been a disaster, yes. I’d give Nixon credit for getting us out of a war, which is what had to happen, and he did it. But really, we’ve had an unbroken run of bad presidents. The Swamp has just been too powerful to allow an effectively good one, perhaps. I’d agree Obama’s legacy isn’t much, but his incompetence and laziness did allow the Swamp to overwhelmingly grow their power, so that alone makes him bad.

      Johnson established the welfare state and destroyed the black family and culture, making them slaves of the State, all while driving a great wedge of rascisim into our land.

      Nixon paved the way for China to become the globalists’ “State Capitalism”. He established the EPA. coined the term “hispanic” and gave them extra-constitutional rights. Took us off the gold standard.

      Other globalists agendas were carried out by the rest of them. HW signed America on to the globalist agenda 21, Clinton implemented it in all agencies. Bush 2nd funded it well. Obama began the final and irreversible transition to global governance.

      Some were just better at it than others.

      Goldwater tried to break through. Reagan succeeded, as did Trump.

        Some of the worst DOMESTIC legislation was passed
        during the tenures of Ford and Reagan. I’m referring to
        section 8, part 1 (1974) under Ford. It was one of the major
        reasons for all the wholesale neighborhood changes in the
        mid late 70s.

        Reagan’s 2nd administration brought us Section 8 part 2,
        “fair housing” ( a court decision that outlawed singles only
        complexes. Can’t begin to describe how ultimately harmful
        that was to thousands upon thousands of schools). Home
        funds, expansion of Community Development Block Grants,
        and tying for worst of all, illegal amnesty, and Low Income
        Housing Tax Credits. Everyone thinks Section 8 screwed
        up their old neighborhoods. Wrong. 92% possibility that it
        was Low Income Housing Tax Credits. That comes from
        HUD’s own figures on what mechanisms different percentages
        of “affordable housing” is created by yearly.

        “No Child Left Behind” passed during W. Horrendous law.
        I refer to it as “No School Left Standing”.

      I’ll say this with all respect, and good cheer befitting the season:

      The retroactive single-issue-prism conservative purity tests some folks want to impose here drive me almost as bonkers as the batty tin foil hat Q riddle crap.

      I’ll contest the Reagan characterization. I lived through his presidency as a young adult. He had the Congress he had, which is to say never a Republican House, and never particularly close to it, plus a RINO-infested Senate to a degree that’s hard to imagine today.

      No argument that he made plenty of mistakes along the way. Take your pick. Lebanon. Iran-Contra. The second tax deal. The immigration deal, as you mention. Buckling to Ted Kennedy and gracing the nation with Anthony Kennedy after the Bork debacle is my top choice. Or maybe Sandra Day O’Connor. Plenty to take issue with.

      But come on … Reagan had the foresight to ramp up an arms race with the Soviet Union in the face of fierce and unrelenting global opposition and throw the cans of gasoline on the USSR dumpster fire that brought about its actual demise rather than the theoretical one we’d been waiting decades for. Millions of people in former Soviet satellites will tell you Reagan and John Paul II improved more people’s lives than anyone else in the last half of the last century.

      His “I meant what I said” stance when he fired the illegally striking air traffic controllers was probably his signature foreign policy triumph, because that action echoed far beyond the domestic issue at hand.

      THE ECONOMY WAS A F***ING SHAMBLES WHEN HE TOOK OFFICE. 2008 was a crisis. The economy in 1980 was simply a condition from which Americans had lost hope. He advanced the radical and widely ridiculed argument that lower taxes would trigger prosperity and ultimately increase federal revenue. He didn’t flinch during a painful recession and a midterm shellacking that resulted from tightening the money supply to bring inflation to a halt and restore confidence in America.

      To view an entire presidency through the downrange consequences of a single flawed compromise is hyperbolic and simplistic. Thanks for taking to the time to read all the way through.

      17th Amendment meant that States no longer picked their Senators, but that it became a popularity contest.

      The Income Tax through the XVIth Amendment became a permanent and increasingly convoluted obligation imposed on increasing numbers of the population, and thereby giving the Federal Govt access to the smallest detail of Americans’ lives.

He was shot down over the Pacific and after his rescue by a submarine went back to fighting the Japanese. In all, he flew 58 combat missions and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and 3 Air Medals. I salute his service.

      Hopefully soon, as you say, even if there’s nothing substantial left of the original evidence. Bush was one of the last living witnesses who could have revealed who planned JFK’s assassination. If he didn’t know, no one did. Now we only have second-hand accounts, from his family, to the extent he “shared”, which is questionable.

      On the one hand, to play it completely safe, you’d think he’d never breathe a word about it to any of his family. On the other hand, given the stunning arrogance of the elder Bushes, it’s not hard to imagine him winking at his sons some late night in the study after a heady night of politics with God knows who as guests. They ruled the world and boy did they know they were entitled. They had the good sense to put up a show to the contrary, but the ugly entitlement came shooting out with steam when challenged by those below their station.
