To ASI Supporters:

There were many moving tributes to the late former President George H.W. Bush. He was an excellent role model as a human being. He was a good father and husband. We need many more like him. But it’s not disrepectful to consider and comment on what kind of president he was.

Jared Kushner received the Order of the Aztec Eagle from Mexico

Consider the late Senator John McCain, who was a Vietnam veteran. It’s because of one of McCain’s last votes in the Senate that Obamacare remains in place. In his column, Who Lost The House? John McCain, Rep. Jason Lewis blamed McCain for making it difficult to win re-election.He wrote:

The Republican Party lost its House majority on July 28, 2017, when Sen. John McCain ended the party’s seven-year quest to repeal ObamaCare. House leadership had done an admirable job herding cats. On the second try, we passed the American Health Care Act in May. Then McCain’s inscrutable vote against the Senate’s “skinny repeal” killed the reform effort.

This put conservatives on the defensive throughout the campaign. Lewis wrote:

McCain’s last-minute decision prompted a “green wave” of liberal special-interest money, which was used to propagate false claims that the House plan “gutted coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.” That line was the Democrats’ most potent attack in the midterms.

This treatment should apply to former President George H.W. Bush. We can respect his service to the country and worth as a human being without having to praise his terrible record.

Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of FedUp PAC and ConservativeHQ.com, wrote that:

…in the age of President Donald J. Trump, those who draw unflattering comparisons between Bush and Trump and wax nostalgic for George H.W. Bush’s public decorum and old-fashioned Protestant rectitude want Americans to forget that behind the gentlemanly exterior was a politician whose policies were anything but conservative, and whose greatest political legacy was breaking the Reagan coalition and undoing many of Ronald Reagan’s hard-won victories…While most commentators tend to focus on “Read my lips,” Bush quickly walked away from conservative principles on a long list of policies and decisions. Some of the worst were:

  • He bailed out the troubled savings and loans banks.
  • He bought into global warming by signing the Framework Convention on Climate Change.
  • He created a “no net loss of wetlands” policy out of whole cloth, with little legislative authority, outraging farmers and landowners across the country.
  • And in what was perhaps his most lasting and damaging betrayal of conservatives, he appointed an obscure [liberal and pro-abortion] state judge, David Souter of New Hampshire, to the Supreme Court.

One test of a politician at a national level is whether he or she follows through on reducing the size and scope of the federal government, and whether he carries through on a pro-American foreign policy.

Viguerie adds:

While it was hard for Bush and his advisers to believe that he could go from over 90 percent approval when Operation Desert Storm ended in 1991, to getting just 37.5 percent of the popular vote in the 1992 election, it is easily explained when you look at the litany of me-too policies he backed and the liberal bills he signed.

Bush lost the 1992 election to Bill Clinton. In retrospect, Operation Desert Storm didn’t accomplish its goals. While we praise our soldiers and honor them, the plan to “save” the Middle East from Saddam Hussein did not work out. Because of bad decisions made by both Presidents Bush, President Trump is now trying to save the Middle East from Iran. Our politicians have failed to recognize the nature of the Red Jihad. Take a look at the Saudi Crown Prince at the G20 summit laughing and clapping hands with Vladimir Putin.

By the way, just before the G20 meeting, outgoing Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto awarded senior Trump adviser (and son-in-law) Jared Kushner his nation’s greatest honor -- the Order of the Aztec Eagle. It was supposed to be for his work on the new NAFTA.

But the pro-Trump Liberty Counsel points out:

President Trump has now signed the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which would replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), at the G-20 summit in Argentina. It now goes to the Senate for ratification. While the USMCA is an improvement over NAFTA, it must not be allowed to pass with “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” in Articles 23.9 and 23.1(5)(l)(i).

Mat Staver, Chairman of Liberty Counsel Action, says, “The LGBT provision is a Trojan horse that must not be included in any trade agreement.”

Thanks Jared. 

Newt Gingrich was on Sean Hannity’s Fox show last night saying that Russia-gate Prosecutor Robert Mueller is trying to destroy Trump. Here’s what he said in May 2017:

Will somebody tell me why anybody pays any attention to Gingrich?
