Open letter to George W Bush….and the American people

Op-Ed

Dear President Bush,

After listening intently to, and considering the context of, your speech last week, I feel compelled to respond.

“We’re gathered here in the cause of Liberty.”  Liberty is freedom with personal responsibility.  Considering all which has transpired here, and world-wide, over the last several years, you choose a rather odd time to speak out.

You assert freedom, democracies fail when, “those charged with preserving and protecting,” democracies fail. Let me be clear, the last several presidents of this country have failed miserably to preserve and protect our liberties.  But none failed quite so stunningly as Barack Obama which leads many to wonder, where have you been over the past, devastating 9 years?

“Exploit our divisions”: We all witnessed President Obama engage in the constant pitting of all factions of Americans against each other. Be it race, religion, financial or social status, no president in memory worked harder at sowing divisions.  Politically, Leftist ideologies were glorified, Right ideologies/traditional American values were mercilessly vilified and effectively silenced.

“Freedom is not merely a political menu option”:  Indeed it is not, Mr. Bush.  But during the Obama years, freedom of speech and the right of personal, chosen beliefs were under perpetual assault.

BTW, did you have a chance to read the list of potential domestic terrorists issued by Mr. Obama’s DHS secretary?  Christian, Patriot, Veteran, Pro-Life, Constitution – chances are Sir, some of your beliefs fell under one or more such labels making you, too, a “Potential Domestic Terrorist.”

A Sampling of Obama years in America … as you sat silent:

  • Blatantly violated the Constitution no fewer than 21 times
  • Flat out repeatedly lied to the American people about major issues
  • He ignited the War On Cops resulting in their deaths; honored BLM with WH invite “Pigs in a Blanket, fry them like bacon” “What do we want, dead cops, When do we want it, ‘NOW”
  • He & Holder threw gasoline on conflicts like Ferguson
  • National debt exploding to +20 TRILLION
  • IRS selectively target citizens who politically disagree ie Christians, Conservatives, Patriots
  • Instituted New Rules of Engagement resulting in INCREASED military wounded and deaths
  • Proposed wounded Vets pay their own healthcare (after all, they volunteer, knew the risks)
  • Took no action to repair broken VA hospitals, Vets died awaiting care
  • Used military as a petri dish of social science experimentation
  • Forbid military from speaking the name of the enemy, Radical Islam
  • Threw wide open our Southern border to millions of illegals and covert
  • Releasing hundreds of thousands convicted illegal alien prisoners, free to reoffend
  • DACA costing millions and the lives of American children via horrific diseases imported with them
  • From 2009-2013 alone, imported 680,000 refugees from every world wide hot bed of terrorism
  • Dangerous jihadists released from Gitmo, free to re-join the battle against us
  • The stunningly bad, almost treasonous Iran Nuclear Deal
  • 1.7 Billon delivered to Iran on pallets of cash
  • 1.7 Billon delivered to Iran on pallets of cash

You claim we have a, “crisis of confidence.”  You are quite correct but sadly, do not seem to comprehend why.

As an example, the American people are neither ignorant nor disengaged.  Millions of us witnessed a demoralizing and yes, lawless 8 years in America. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, wiped clean with Bleach Bit from her illegal home brewed server some 33,000 emails.  Her hand held devices were sent to the FBI minus Sims cards while other devices suffered destruction by hammer.

ALL of the aforementioned were under subpoena.  Three days after a clandestine meeting between Bill Clinton and AG Lynch at an obscure tarmac in Arizona, FBI Director Comey detailed some of Ms. Clinton’s many felonious acts then, rewriting federal law, let her off due to “lack of intent to harm.” Our national security was, without doubt, put at serious risk.

Meanwhile, Machinist 1st Class Kristian Saucier was sentenced to a year in prison for taking a few submarine photos.  He hoped to show them to his children one day.  “We are a nation of laws” but, when it becomes painfully apparent, laws do not apply to equally to citizens and political, when our judicial system has become tainted and corrupt, there can be no confidence.

After the horrific 9/11 attack you asserted, “I hear you … and pretty soon the world will hear you.”  You heard but did you actually listen?  Sept. 20, 2001, you followed with a speech addressing the Muslim world referring to their, “teachings are good and peaceful.”  There actually is/was video recordings of many Muslims in America, and around the world, celebrating the worst attack on American in our history.

Did you consider having the courage to call for a temporary pause on Muslims entering our country?  No, you allowed them continued entry instead opting for the Patriot Act.  Yes, this allowed surveillance of Muslims here but also intense surveillance of American citizens.

The “slippery slope”created by the Patriot Act that we worried about has now evolved in ways which far surpass our initial concerns. You speak of a crisis of confidence?  We now know Obama’s NSA chief defiantly, flat-out lied to congress about surveillance of American citizens.

From wrong-sided interference in the Arab Spring, to ignoring Iran’s Green Revolution … from the horrific Iranian Deal, refusing to address North Korean’s nuclear aggression to the irresponsible spread of ISIS, the “JV team,”  had you nothing at all to say Mr. Bush?

No fewer than 8 times you speak about, “global,” concerns. and dare to lecture about “Nationalism vs Nativism.” Sir, we’ve just arisen from an administration where by, “patriotism,” was nearly akin to a crime.

It qualified citizens as potential terrorists.  Have you forgotten during WWII America saw as many as 1,700,000 deaths in the European Theater alone? Our country was the decisive factor in liberating Europe from the grips of the Third Reich. Be it natural disasters or human conflicts, America has always given, and continues to give, its full measure of relief and assistance around the world at great sacrifice both monetarily and in American lives.

Do not conflate Nationalism with Nativism. Our great, and deserved, national pride has thankfully been liberated by President Trump. That his every decision is guided by the safety, protection and best interests of the America people, first and foremost, is what every president is charged to do.

We refuse to keep apologizing for our successes, our kindness not continue to be perceived as weakness. Seeking fair and equitable trade agreements alleviating suffering of the American workforce should, in no way, be a source of scorn, not by you, not by anybody.

During his first foreign trip, his “apology tour,” President Obama was invited by President Sarcozy to join him in a  trip to Normandy where many of our dead are buried.  He refused as he feared. “insulting Germany.”  Were you even tempted to speak out as Obama took the world stage humiliating our America?  Or then as now, did  you agree with his sentiments?

“Little did we know that repressive governments would be undertaking a major effort to encourage division in western societies and to undermine the legitimacy of elections.”  None have done more to undermine the legitimacy of this past election than Democrats, the Leftist movement and yes, even some Republicans.

Those foreign entities’ attempts to interfere have been aided and abetted by these enemies of our current president. You will recall sir, the legitimacy of your own first election was called into question.

“Renewal of our (democratic) spirit the urgent task at hand.”  Where were you when Obama crushed the American spirit by denigrating us on the world stage?  As he violated our Constitutional protections?

Mitt Romney, John McCain, both lacked the courage to run serious and aggressive campaigns against Barack Obama.  Yet Romney, like his father, somehow found the nerve, or gall, to viciously, disgracefully, attack one of his own.

In many ways Mr. Bush, you helped to usher in the Obama administration, the most lawless presidency in our history.  During your presidency, you refused to fight back against your many attackers.

You thought the long string of lies gone unanswered would magically disappear. Instead, they eventually they took on a life of their own and became believed.  “Bush lied, people died,” is still chanted.  As you left office, you left your supporters hanging out to dry.  The very words, “Republican,” “Conservative,” became akin to calling somebody a foul and dirty name.  Understand this Mr. Bush, every time President Trump defends himself, he defends all of us.

You remained a silent bystander as Obama systematically dismantled America in more ways than I can mention here. Whether lack of courage or covertly sympathetic Obama’s radical, Leftist agendas, all too many Republicans lacked courage to stand up for the American people. Either way, We The People have had their fill of treachery.

Last November, the American people spoke, loud and clear.  Our president, Mr. Trump, is exactly what American most needs at this point in time.  He is a man who, without doubt, has a deep and abiding love of country and has already demonstrated, against all odds, his ability to stand and deliver. We have had our fill of professional politicians promising everything, delivering nothing save for betrayals.

Ah yes, we well know President Trump comes without political pedigree, nor does he speak in political “tongue.”  You and other professional politicians, Elitists, look down upon him as a political peasants, an out-sider, unsophisticated … but please note, every time a member of the DC swamp strikes out against him, you deliver a slap in the face of every patriotic American voter.

Mr. Bush, you rode off into the sunset to live safely, peacefully on your Texas ranch honing your painting skills.  We, traditional Americans, were left behind depicted by your replacement, by the MSM, by the Left as monsters, as retro bates, as “potential terrorists.”  Rehabilitating ourselves has been no easy task but our burdens became exponentially lighter last November.

For the first time, perhaps since George Washington himself, we have an honest man not already owned and operated by the donor class, by the DC king makers, by lobbyists before his first footsteps into the Oval Office.

President Trump owes nobody but the American people who voted for him.  We are emboldened by his courage, buoyed by his candor and touched by his sincerity.

You remained strictly silent honoring the tradition of retired American presidents never criticizing current ones.  You had nothing at all to say during the exquisitely painful and destructive Obama years.  Why now, Mr. Bush?

  1. “Miss me yet ?” No, Mr. Bush. You missed that boat 2,3,4,5,6,7, years ago, when it counted. Now you want to lecture me on my patriotism and liberty and in the same breath criticize my president ! Jeb lost ; The country won !

  2. Outstanding letter JudyAnn.I confess that I supported GW against the Libs during the post 9’11 years. Building 7 ‘s controlled destruction is the 911 truth evidence that wont go away.The Bushes are in with George Soros and the BILDERBERG CRIME SYNDICATE. In coming out against Trump now, GW has clearly shown his true colors. He’s with them, just as the republican RINO’s revealed in the 2016 primarys.

  3. Thank you Judyann!
    Many of us have been educated in Agenda 21. We have learned that Bush senior sold the US out to the UN when he was president.
    When we thought that the Bush Dynasty couldn’t get worse we get another apple that doesn’t fall far from the tree!
    Your words , we hope , will strike a blow at the heart of the Swamp!!!! The ballots we cast will hopefully send a loud message also; louder than November 2016!!

    • Your welcome, Joe D, I spoke for all of We The People who have made it our business to pay close attention to what has/is transpiring in our country. GW made a HUGE mistake, his speech leaving all of us livid.
      You may recall, it was the old man, George 41 who FIRST mentioned the, New World Order, in those exact words. They are among those, Globalists, who do NOT put America’s interests first. It is the pompous Elitists, ever thirsty for money, hungry for power, selling us out every day they show up at work.
      They do not work for us, they work for their own self interests and, by necessity, protect each other like a cabal of thieves.

    • Russia has achieved exactly what Putin sought to do, create chaos in our country and undermine our election process. Indeed, it is the Democrats, the Left AND the Old Republican Guard fully complicit in their aiding and abetting Russia.

  4. Trump is our President,now. You former Presidents sure have a lot to say about how he is running our country. I really don’t see how any of you can talk about President Trump. I don’t see a lot of things you former presidents done for our country. I for one think he is doing a good job!!

    • So a good job includes lying and bullying people to get what you want. I don’t want to have a president who resorts to that kind of behavior. How can you defend a man who doesn’t have character? Do you really what your children to look up to someone like that?

      • We had a president, Obama, who no fewer than two dozen times looked straight into a camera and lied to every American… “if you like your doctor (insurance), you can keep your doctor, (insurance). That was a flat out lie and he knew it.
        You read, above, the abbreviated list of Obama’s many destructive trespasses, all apparently, perfectly fine with you but President Trump is a liar.
        Putting the best interests of America is not bullying, it is supposed to be the PRIMARY concern of every president.
        I put the character of this president up against the horrendous “character” of Obama who, by his every word and deed, had nothing but disdain for our country, who perpetually sowed the seeds of hate and divisiveness, any day of the week.

      • The one thing President Trump has not done is lie unlike Obama and both Bushes. He is not bullying someone when he tells the truth. For the first time since President Reagan we have a great President who loves this country. Your children should look up to you, not people in the public eye of any kind. Was Obama someone your children could look up too? I certainly would not want my children to look up to him. He was one of the biggest liers we have ever had as President. He hates this country, unlike Trump.

        • Indeed Barrie, if lying is at issue, a sitting president is one person with whom the America people be able to depend upon to be truthful.
          I followed Mr Obama’s tenure quite closely, made it my business to remain well informed on all issues at hand and can assure you, there was not a single speech, address or public statement given by Obama which was NOT filled with distortions, half truths or flat out lies.
          Joe Wilson suffered a temporary loss of decorum during the then president’s address to the joint session of Congress shouting, “you lie.” when Obama was laying out his healthcare plan, stated, “The reforms I am proposing would not apply to those what are here illegally,”
          Wilson was vindicated when it was revealed, “$8.5 million of a $28.8 million award to community healthcare centers has been specifically set aside to help seasonal and migrant farm workers.” In fact, clinics were forbidden to even ask for identification or citizen status.
          Those funds were specifically earmarked, not for American citizens, but for illegals. Worse still, as veterans continued to die awaiting health care, illegals received immediate care.

          As an aside, by July more than 500 bad actors working at the VA have been fired since Jan. 20.. Since then, President Trump has signed the VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act. Expect many more culpable VA employees to be fired.
          Brian Hawkins, director of the Washington DC Veterans hospital, a very “bad actor,” was fired early summer. By August, the Merit System Protection Board forced his rehiring.
          New legislation now enacted by President Trump enabled Hawkins to be fired for good, streamlined the process and lowered the bar for evidence needed to expediently fire incompetent VA employees.
          Before this president brought real accountability to the VA, regardless how bad employees were, they were protected. Instead of being fired they were transferred, sometimes promoted or cases delayed long enough for reprobate employees to retire. All while vets died awaiting care.

  5. President Trump is doing a spectacular job and under the worst of circumstances. He is forced to do battle with the horrifically corrupted Democrat Party, the 91% hostile MSM, under constant attack by Hollywood/the entertainment industry and, worse still, members of his own party fully entrenched in the Deep State.
    He is in many ways, one man standing alone – save for We The People who understood the unique opportunity Mr. Trump gave us, voting into office a president who is no puppet of that Deep State, who owes his only allegiance to we who voted for him.
    Now if we could just get rid of that little rat, Jeff Sessions whose irresponsible actions have given the Left every opportunity to take our president down while REFUSING to go after those truly guilty of multiple felonies and TREASON.

  6. Georgia Bush, I voted for you to become President, but now I am disappointed in your speech. You should have kept a closed mouth. You are embarrassing yourself. Obama was the worst President we have ever had, no question! You have some things during your Presidency to answer for, so you need to stay in Texas and enjoy retirement! God Bless!

  7. This line in your letter sums it up: In many ways Mr. Bush, you helped to usher in the Obama administration, the most lawless presidency in our history. But, the sleeping giant has awoken to the destruction of the left, which sadly consists of RINO’s too. We finally have a president who will stand up for America and American values. God Bless President Trump.

  8. Very good job we forget just how bad Obama was with your information on him we will not forget how evil he was the only problem is the demons will not read anything. About him even if it is true

    • Thank you, Sharon.

      The greatest challenge composing this letter was trying to prioritize what is a near endless list of Obama’s destructive, malicious and wholly damaging trespasses. It would be nearly impossible to have instant recall of all but sadly, his actions were so malignant, I am still tortured by the devastation one man, along with his sycophants, wrought upon us both domestically and internationally.

      We need to remember. We can allow neither time or distance to ever allow this to happen again.

  9. Wow. All I can say is wow. You stated everything We The People are feeling and the reason we voted for President Trump. I for one am very proud of our president. Why now Mr. Bush is the question. The answer is painfully clear in his revealing speech. Thank you for not referring to Barak Obama or Mr. Bush with the title of president. A long letter, but so well written ,I enjoyed every word. Thank you.

    • Thank you for your kind words, Harriet, and your patriotism. Long as this was, I had to edit out the many more “trespasses,” or crimes committed under the Obama regime.

      And no, after his latest abject insult to We The People, I could not bring myself to give him the respect of calling him president.

      Of the many, unexpected “perks,” from Trump the candidate and president has been the revealing of the MANY who have been beating their chests proclaiming themselves, “good Conservatives,” while remaining covert members of the Elitist Deep State globalists. They’ve been betraying us for many years.

      The other, FABULOUS perk, President Trump pointing directly to the MSM and loudly proclaiming, “Fake News.” We The People have long known their extreme bias as they doggedly, subtly pushed Socialism down our throats. President Trump is making sure everybody knows.

      Suffering from acute Trump Derangement Syndrome, they’ve lost their subtle approach and gone crazy. Now, millions more Americans know what we’ve long known, subjective journalism in America is dead.
