Editor’s Comment: On the surface, there are good intentions here. The Bushes, like other patriotic establishment figures, always honor the troops, and count the sacrifices. Typically, they are stoic and praiseworthy of everything the military does. But underneath the surface, one has to wonder what is really going on inside the disturbed mind of George W. Bush – whose orders for an illegal war in Iraq, and a broader War on Terror in Afghanistan and elsewhere resulted in the deaths of thousands of U.S. troops, tens of thousands of wounded or injured and potentially more than a million civilians dead.

Does he feel remorse? Guilt? Has he admitted to his personal responsibility for what happened to their lives? Or do his paintings reveal a morbid sense of power over the lives of men and women whom he can only reflect upon and humanize after the fact? Considering that the Iraq war was based upon a provable lie – or false intelligence if you prefer to lie to yourself – something seems very off about honoring victims who wouldn’t have been harmed if Bush himself hadn’t authorized the actions that took place under his watch.

George W. Bush Paints Portraits Of The Veterans Who Were “Injured Carrying Out My Orders”

by John Vibes

This Veterans Day, former president George W. Bush revealed one of his favorite hobbies and talents, painting portraits. However, there was an extremely disturbing twist.

This week, Bush posted a photo to his official Instagram account, showing himself in an art room painting portraits of the veterans who were injured carrying out his orders. He was even brazen enough to describe the situation in those exact words.

In the caption below the photo, Bush said,

Over the past several months, I’ve painted the portraits of 98 wounded warriors I’ve gotten to know – remarkable men and women who were injured carrying out my orders. I think about them on #VeteransDay and every day. Their paintings and stories will be featured in PORTRAITS OF COURAGE – a book and special exhibit – next spring, and I am donating all my proceeds to @thebushcenter and our Military Service Initiative’s work to honor and support them. Click link in bio for more info.

Is this a slap in the face to the veterans who Bush sent to be injured and die in senseless wars, or does he actually have remorse for the part he played in the conflicts?

The portraits will also be featured in a book that will be released by the former president and will tell the stories of the veterans depicted in the paintings.

For some reason, despite the fact that Bush said he painted 98 veterans, the official “portraits of courage” series consists of a total of 66 images, according to the website.

66 is a bit of a strange number for them to select, don’t you think?

The paintings in the book will be the subject of a special exhibit at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas on the campus of SMU that will be open to the public from March 2, 2017 through October 1, 2017.

      Only the Almighty knows the truth.

      • Recondo550

        I agree completely!

        • W68

          Many people on this web site, many “conservative” leaning people GLORIFY military service. They praise military service. Like it is an honorable pursuit.

          I have been up close and personal in combat. Not hiding behind the wire in a “green zone”. Patching up the end result of combat.

          There is absolutely NOTHING honorable about being in military that sends you across the world to MURDER people you don’t know. People who have done nothing to you personally.

          You are just killing them because a suit or suit’s in Washington DC sent you there. You are in another man’s country imposing your world view upon him. Trying to kill him. And he sure as hell is trying to kill you. You have no right to be there anyway.

          War is the most Demeaning, Humiliating, and Treacherous act that any human being can inflict upon another. There is NO honor. There are no “good guys”. Just a bunch of ass holes on Both sides profiting form the death-destruction-chaos. Each sides Leaders lining their own pockets. Fighters get nothing but dead or broken.

          The “warrior”. Is the biggest goof. He bought into a line of bull shit. Went looking for trouble in someone else’s country. He found trouble and got himself killed or messed up.

          You brave arm chair warriors. I challenge you to go to the nearest VA hospital. Go visit men without families. Or those of us who once had families and lost our wives. Because we were not home. We went looking for trouble believing LIAR politicians like Bush. Over seas our heads were messed up because we simply lost too many people we cared about, saw too much.. As result we drink a bit much and act like ass holes. So our children have nothing to do with us. VA hospital does NOT take care of any of our medical or psych needs. US Army then comes after money they gave us to re-up and continue fighting the liar politicians war. The damn state of California even wants to charge us INTEREST on the promised money that they NOW want us to pay back.

          It is ALL bull shite. Keep your children OUT of ANY military service.
          *They will get killed.
          *Loose arms-legs-mind.
          *Or kill them selves upon returning because nothing makes any since back home.
          *No one home gives a rat’s ass about anything you did. All for NOTHING.
          *VA hospital screws you out of every last dime you have. They charge you!
          They also play paper work games hoping you will just give up on benefits due you.
          *Government wants BACK money they paid you, with INTEREST.

          I doubt this perspective is posted here. As there is a concerted conspiracy to cover up the truth. Everyone in lock step.

          NFL player who volunteered for combat, Pat Tilman, figured out the truth. He was going to talk about it publicly.
          So the Army Friendly Fired upon Pat Tilman and MURDERED the man. It was a hit.

          But we are all big boys n gals. You are responsible for your choice. If you get messed up “fighting” for America. It is on YOU. Because you were actually fighting so rich politicians and corporations make more money and line their pockets. Young people are gullible. So are their parents.

          Now let the fur fly from you EXPERTS, out of shape Fat asses sitting at home behind your keyboard. Comfortable, beer in hand, good hot food near by, running water, air conditioning, or heater, warm dry, safe, sound. You pricks know NOTHING and have likely seen very little. Only those who have truly been there can speak: WW II-Korea-Nam those guys seen the shit. I salute them with great respect. All I have seen is likely cake walk by compare. And even that cake walk sucked. Not recommended.

          Just stay out of it. Leave other people alone. Don’t go looking for trouble in another man’s country. SECURE our own Borders. Clean our own house.
          -That is All.

            That’s the difference between a Celtic king and a European king (a chess reference of strategy). In days of old, a king would “captain” his men by bravely leading them into battle himself. Now, all wars are now fought by the young while their kings remain safely far away from the battle.

          • Mary

            How incredibly honest of you. Just want to say “I respect that honesty”. No damn lying, no illusions……just calling shit what it is.
            I sincerely hope that someone convinces TRUMP to put people like you in front of the American people, to speak to them, to name the nastard bankers and money rollers for what they are…..human slaughter groups who benefit from the dead and rotting corpses, as well as the walking wounded.
            I hope TRUMP spends his entire time in office using the bully pulpit to change the American psyche about war and what the reality is when young men decise to buy the bullshite!

            I support EVERYTHING you said. And I am very, very sorry you had to go through that hell.

            We should have NEVER gone to the Middle East – the leadership of this country has innocent blood on its hands – and guess what – God HATES the shedding of innocent blood. The leadership is culpable.

            I’d hug you, shake your hand, if you were standing next to me.

            God bless you.

          • Mayor McCheese

            Spoken like a true veteran. I salute you.

      • A Arizonian

        I agree completely!

      • john stiner

        George Bush actually cared about our veterans. He met with every signle family member that was killed during the wars.

        Every single one.

        Once a month he hosted a diner where all the family members were invited and he spoke with every single one of them.

        Even that fat bitch anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan.

        Obama, piece of shit he is, never met with the family of the dead and ordered the military to report American troops killed as “NATO” troops to fool the American public.

        Remember when Geroge Bush and his wife ditched the secrete service and went to Killeen to meet with the injured during the Army mass shooting at Fort Hood in 2009?

        George Bush cared, so it pisses me off when people make light of that.

        • durangokidd

          GWB “cared” so much he used the Alabama Air Nat’l Guard to avoid Vietnam, and was AWOL from that.

          He was a fucking coward.

          This Vietnam Vet would love to paint his portrait: hanging from a noose, dangling next to Obola. 🙂

          • JimB

            A very large portion of active duty never went to Vietnam either. I suppose you would call them cowards also.

            • durangokidd

              No. The cowards went to Canada and the Alabama Air Nat’l Guard to sit out the war. 🙁

              • Mr. Charlie

                Soooooooo…..Let me get this right; “our” government does the false flag thing to kick start the Vietnam war so they could make “a killing”,(no pun intended), then they sent our young boys(men?) into a meat grinder just for kicks and giggles, and you say anyone wishing to NOT take part in this insane plan, is a coward? Man, I really hate to tell you this, but you really need to take a real hard look at your soul and who you call a coward.

                All wars are for money and if you do just a tiny bit of research you will find that to be the real hard TRUTH.

                Mr. Charlie out.

              • Anonymous

                It is not a coward to avoid war. You avoid not out of fear. But out of respect for human life. Some people don’t buy into the Bravo Sierra of going to kill someone because you are told to.

                No one owns me or my children.
                Not the federal government.
                Not the state government
                Not the church.
                We REFUSE to Hate. Live in Fear. Be Fearful. Or KILL.
                Just because any of these “Authorities” dictate, order, draft.
                I also could care less about thier Reason-Lie of the Moment-Justification for violence. We are NOT Fighting or Dying because the fed-church-state says to.

                It takes a strong man to swim against the tide and current of the mass Borg think.
                I would Not catagorize REFUSING to kill as being a coward.

                I would counter that Fat American Corporate and Politician PUKES sending others to kill so they can make them selves RICH is cowardly.
                –Let them do their own killing.
                –Fight their own wars.
                –Send their children to Iraq-Syria-Africa-Afghanistan.
                THEN wars would stop over night.
                THEIR children will NEVER fight in front line units.
                They themselves would Never want to be under fire.

                It is Damn easy to send someone else to fight-kill-bleed-die.
                THAT IS BEING A COWARD.
                I piss on your mindless following of a lying ASS in a suit.

                Us deplorables take care of our own business.
                Politicians can put in their own work.
                My children will NEVER fight Fat Liar Politicians wars.
                That is FACT.

            Exactly Durrango. I believe it was the Texas Nat Guard though.

            August 1st 1972
            On this day in 1972, George W. Bush, the nation’s 43rd president, was permanently suspended from flying with the Texas Air National Guard for having missed an annual medical examination.

            The matter spawned a political controversy in both the 2000 and 2004 presidential campaigns. Reporters probed not only how and why Bush had lost his flight status
            but also how he came to be a member of the Texas Air National Guard during the Vietnam War and whether he had in fact fulfilled the requirements of his military service contract.

            Bush defended his military record by contending that he satisfactorily completed all of his military obligations. HE FLUNKED THE MEDICAL EXAME BECAUSE HE WAS AOL FOR MONTHS STUFFING COCAINE UP HIS NOSE AND WHY HE WANTED TO USE HIS OWN SHILL DOCTOR TO DO THE EXAME.

            National Air Guard regulations require pilots to pass an annual physical in order to remain in flight status during the three months prior to a pilot’s birthday, in Bush’s case, July 6. Because Bush did not take the exam during this time frame, his commander suspended his flight status. The decision to do so was confirmed by Col. Bobby Hodges on Sept. 5, 1972, and re-confirmed by a National Guard Bureau order on Sept. 29 of that year.

            As a presidential candidate in 2000, Bush said he wanted wait to take the physical until it could be done by his own private doctor. However, Air Guard regulations require that the physical be performed by an Air Force doctor. Moreover, flight surgeons conducted Bush’s two previous physical exams.

              Dan Rather much?

        • Frank Thoughts

          Agree: Bush and his wife are good people. Whatever you may think about the decision to attack Iraq, he knew the seriousness of that decision and he understood what it meant for the military and their families.

          Obama, on the other hand, has fought a devious and secretive global war that would not have been as large and as bloody if the US had stayed in Iraq and kept the Iraqi state functioning. Iraq required troops being there for another 50 years or so to keep it stable. If Iraq held together, then there would not have been all the instability we see today in the Middle East. A fully trooped up base network in Iraq would have ensured any militants would have been squashed quickly and there would have been no ISIS nor the caliphate.

          We now have Islamic militants running operations right across the Middle East and Africa and parts of Asia and they have their ground troops placed all over Europe. That is a way worse outcome than keeping some permanent bases in Iraq (which could have been paid for with Iraqi oil).

            The Bush Family conspired with Saudi Arabia that sent those hijackers into the Twin towers on 9-11. Tell us again what great people the Bush’s are???

            Trump will release all the dirt on the Bush Family of Criminals. And that is exactly why the Bush’s supported their shill Hillary who would not expose them of their crimes.

            The Bush Family is a Massive Crime Family and needs to be sent to Prison and or hanged for Treason.

            • Leonard

              What proof do you have that the Bush family conspired with the Saudi royal family, or had anything to do with a gaggle of ragheads hijacking 4 planes and flying them into buildings? Please don’t quote Alex Jones or Rense–I understand that like yourself, neither of them were present at any of the conspiracy meetings…

        • eclipse

          bush is a coward and liar. he got thousands of brave American soldiers and Marines killed just because he wanted to prove how “tough” he was. his rich, politically well connected daddy got him out of Vietnam by getting him into a National Guard unit ahead of 300 other applicants. He was among our worst presidents. I will never believe he cared. He is a national disgrace and should be in prison for war crimes.

        • Marys

          No, he did NOT care. He was simply playing the role of the big daddy who takes care of his brood……so that the American people would THINK he cared. He was fully aware of the PNAC plan and documents. He KNEW that Bin Ladenhad nothing to do with the twin towers. He KNEW the Saudi family and Israel qere involved, as well as the highest levels of our 3 letter agencies and entire defense department.
          That criminal knew it was all a scam.
          So, of course he pretended to care. Are you REALLY that easy to fool?

          Charlie2dogs, I recently had one the worst trauma’s of my life as a 71 year old senior. My 13-year old dog MacDuff (a 50lb Terrier mix) went in for vet check on a routine hearing test. The vet noticed a swollen liver/spleen area during the check. He X-rayed the dog. His face came back grim. He said your dog will not live long because his spleen is going to burst. In panic I went to a second vet and had an ultrasound done on MacDuff. This vet was even grimmer She said “…I give him 2 weeks at the most…).

          In total panic I dove to our cottage to close it for the winter to get back to the city and prepare for my dog MacDuffs death. Then while I shut up my the cottage my 6 year beagle started throwing up each day. I worked 14 hour days got the cottage closed and drove back to the city to find out what was going on with my beagle.

          My 6 year beagle Bosco was diagnosed with total kidney failure and had days to live. I immediately put Bosco in 24-hr care to try to save him. My mind was in absolute panic being told both my dogs would die in days…I took Xanax for the first time in my life…I was dizzy..I had raised both dogs from puppies and they had been with me 24by 7 for years. Bosco began to fight back. MacDuff was weak.

          So I prayed day and night to Jesus Christ (your mind figment) for his healing grace. One week into the prayers I opened the new testament and read “the evil one will be cast out of him…”. A week later while I was expecting MacDuff to die he recovered. At the same time our Beagle Bosco was over come and he crossed over the rainbow bridge. I cried for weeks over Bosco – to go at 6 years old when weeks before he was the picture of health….

          Today as I write MacDuff plays with our new 16 week old beagle Scooter in the court yard of our home as I write this looking out the window watching them. Scooter is quiet a puppy. Scooter’s ears are so long he almost steps on them when he walks. Scooter is full of love. Love that some how found us in our grief…

          We still grieve over Bosco. But we are so grateful for the lords mercy and the miracle that saved MacDuff. So as for me an my wife …we believe…

            Listen [email protected]$$, I will tell you a story you can’t blow off with your worthless God denying arrogance.
            In 1984 I adopted a tiny Alaskan Husky from the family of a musher in the northern part of the country. He weighed less than 5 lbs while his litter mates towered above him. He had been bottle fed since a baby because he couldn’t compete with his litter mates.
            Upon getting home I immediately took him to my vet because he was so weak, tongue grey etc. She confirmed that he was have cardiac problems. She consulted with out Veterinarian Teaching University hospital about the possibility of heart surgery. They said he was too tiny and too frail to wothstand the type of surgery needed. The recommended he be PTS.
            I refused to end his life and took hom home to allow him to spend whatever time he had left being pampered and loved. I was advised that somemorning I would likely find him dead in his bed. Every morning when I came down to the kitchen I paused at the kitchen door knowing I might see a lifeless body. Every night nefore I went to bed I would sit on the kitchen floor cradling this tiny wonderful soul in my arms, crying and aching inside…….begging God to spare him.
            Over the weeks this little dog remained weak, never gained an ounce, yet somehow stayed alive. One morning I peered into the kitchen, as usual. He heard me. He raised his head the leapt to his feet and ran across the room to me and leapt into my arms……this from a boy who had previously only been able to walk a few sreps and then had to lay down to rest!!!!!!
            I checkd his tongue and gum color……they were no longer grey!!!!!! They were a healthy pink.
            I called in sick and was at the vet clinic when the vet arrived. She listened to his heart and her mouth literally dropped open amd she dropped her stethoscope.
            A full 15 years later I told this story to a human cardiologist from whom I was buying some land. He was a surgeon, and a top notch one at that. When telling the story I dopid not mention ONE WORD about the prayers I regularly said…NOT ONE WORD.
            when I got done telling him the story he peered intensely at me and asked…”were you ever parying to God to save your dog?” I thought the question was maybe a setup, so I was reluctatnt to answer……I am a nurse……andmany surgeons are cold blooded godless creatures.
            But, I decided I really did not care what he might think of my answer.
            I said, ” yes, I prayed every night, with every fiber ofmy being, as I held him in my arms knowing it might be the very last time I would spend with him.” This surgeon replied ” ” i thought so. Actually, I knew so. I knew you had prayed because at 6 months of age your dog’s heart would NEVER HAVEBEENABLE TO SPONTANEOUSLY HEAL THAT CARDIAC ISSUE…..MEVER…BECAUSE THE TISSUE WOULD HAVECHANGED IN SUCH A WAY AS TO PREVENT THAT FROM HAPPENING. You have, in fact, a miracle…..and you should know that every day that you and he live.”
            So there, you godless creature. Take your godless reality and chew on that story.

      Do the vets whose portraits being painted know they are being done,perhaps end up in a book?The answer if yes then tis between bush and the veterans,if not,then he really needs to not paint from photos ect. without first asking permission if he then intends to go public with photos.

          Did I forget to mention GW Bush went AWOL from the TX National Guard, when he failed to show up for months, and then failed his drug test because he was stuffed with Cocaine, He then had his pilot fight wings ripped off his flight jacket in disgrace. He never finished the National Guard. Yeah,…Mission Accomplished.

          As a direct consequence of the LIES that Bush and Cheney and their diabolically evil cabal of mostly jewish neo-cons spewed – following their 9-11 false flag operation, which served as the PNAC gang’s widely publicized and much craved ‘New Pearl Harbor’ style of event, which these criminal maggots opined they would need in order to bullshit the IQ deficient, nose picking, childishly gullible American couch potatoes into going along with their war mongering agenda for the next 100 years – fighting unprovoked and illegal wars against every nation that the stinkhole nation of Israel hated and wanted to use the US military to destroy for them – thanks to these LIES, John – we now have a massive invasion of the entire European continent by millions of subhuman, violent, parasitic, indigestible, culturally hostile non-whites from the turd world – posing a existential threat to the SURVIVAL of every White European nation.

          Every bit of this can be laid at the feet of the Bush Crime Family, Johnny boy. These Bushes deserve to be arrested, charged as war criminals, charged as mass murderers, charged with inciting the genocide of every historic White European nation – tried and convicted of those crimes, and then sentenced to DEATH.

            Tucker, BRAVO AND THANK YOU! I’m glad to see someone agree with me on Bush. Sounds like John Stiner’s been drinking the koolaid from Fox News for way too long.

      Ther’s always some Foundation or “non-profit.

      I hope it is a kindness and not some Satanic sacrifice ritual. These people are so creepy. To think that at one time I actually admired them.

      Personally, I’m fed up with former Presidents. Whatever happened to presidents who used to have class? They’d leave office, maybe hang out at the golf course, and show up at other presidents funerals? Other than that, you’d usually never see them ’til their own funeral. The most you saw was, maybe, a speech (given for free) at a VFW hall and there’d be a newsprint story the next day but NO big media. They had the decency to stay out of the limelight.
      Alas, that was the era BC (before Carter). Nowadays, they seem as attention-addicted as Lindsay Lohan. Nobody cares. Nobody wants to see their ugly mugs. But they simply refuse to retire in quiet dignity. They gotta have a “Library” named after them. Usually in a hometown they haven’t been to in 30 years. They have to publish their ‘memoirs’. Like any of us give a rats ass about their opinions now.
      They just WON’T shut up and go away. I’ll bet a dollar to a donut hole that Barak Hussein’s memoirs are already written by whoever his ghost writer is. The manuscript is all prepared, simply waiting for a 7 figure check from the publisher. 2 days after Trump is inaugurated it’ll be on the NYT bestseller list.
      And, of course, the $50 million a year speech circuit is waiting as well. With ample cable news coverage of every appearance. Who cares!?
      Attention Mr Ex-President, now that your nicotine-stained finger is no longer on the nuclear button, we don’t give a damn what you think!
      As Dr. Seuss once said to Marvin K Mooney- “Will you PLEASE go now!?

        True: the British are just as bad at this too. They used to have leaders who would retire to some small cottage, wear a threadbare cardigan, smoke a pipe and drink cups of strong, sweet tea. You never heard much about them until they died. Now, they want to heal the ‘pain’ of the world’s religions, bone every billionaire’s wife, and can’t stop giving an opinion about everything.

      Paparazzi didn’t follow everybody years ago. The difference is paparazzi that gets paid $300 for a photo of the reich and famous blowing their nose which will then be shown in the media with the caption so and so “has a life-threatening illness”.

    6. Braveheart1776

      SmokinOkie, AMEN to your comments. IMHO, that fascist NWO bastard GWB and the rest of his neocon ‘comrades’ should be pushing up daisies for what they’ve done to this country and other countries in the name of hegemony and the petro dollar. I don’t want to hear from these POS either, Smokin. IMHO, seeing them laying in coffins is much more gratifying.

      not news…not morbid…the paintings were..ehh..
      hope these soldiers benefit from this,
      otherwise,

      For all his faults as commander-in-chief and as a President, I honestly feel he cares deeply for the men and women he sent into battle. He visits faithfully the VA centers/hospitals; and, always has. At least he does not avoid the sight(s) of the repercussions of his decisions. In perhaps a strange and unique way he honors these people with his art. I say – let him paint and express exactly what he says “.. remarkable men and women who were injured carrying out my orders..” There is nothing whatsoever wrong with that statement.

      Why is this even on this site?

      • M

        Exactly.

      • Anonymous

        Cause they Plumb ran out of fear porn to spew that why.

        What does this have to do with Prepping? Nothing.

      • Silent Eyes

        Why are any of these articles on this site? All are fear porn and none have anything to do with prepping. This site has become a huge joke……

    10. Me

      He should paint 3,000 + dead on 9/11 and the millions in ME wars.

      Whoever wrote this article was clearly writing in a spirit of hatred and vitriol. You have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about, and are trying to twist everything into something it’s not. You should feel an overwhelming rush of shame for this article. Seeing your “talking points” you’ve let others tell you want to think, and haven’t developed enough to think for yourself. I feel sorry for you, and those who take what you write as facts.

      • Ketchupondemand

        M, feel sorry for yourself and your lack of vision.
        Read Tucker’s post above and learn some damn truth.

        Bush is just trying to ease his conscience.
        A globalist posing as a human being.

        • Braveheart1776

          Ketchup, spot on. A globalist, fascist, neocon POS who deserves what’s coming to him.

      I honestly miss Bush after the travesty that is Obongo. I always felt like he was just a pawn of his father, we all know there has only been one president since 1980 and that would be George HW Bush Sr. Without a doubt, an emperor and the author of our current destruction.

    14. Stormy

      One word: CREEPY.

    15. Brian

      George W Bush needs to talk to people who lived under ISIS or Taliban control about what their lives were like. These muslim terrorists want all people to live like that. Any doubts about fighting these people would vanish like ice cubes in the Gobi desert.

        Nice article. “Brahms only surpassed perhaps by Bach.”

        An interesting article, by Menken.

        Ethel….:

        The German leader so many hate was a Choir Boy who considered becoming a monk. His hair style was much like that of a monk. He said in at least one public speech that it was a lie that he oppressed the Church. I was surprised how often he referred to The Lord. And that he viewed his position as God verses Satan. The belt buckle of the SS says “God on Our Side”.

      It saddens me to see so many here can’t look past the ‘R’ in GW Bush’s title. He is responsible for the shedding of so much innocent blood starting with 9/11. Yet you refuse to see. Of course W was with the toddlers on the morning of 9/11. Ah, the toddlers; just like Hillary.

      I’ll take my stand with my husband who is a signatory of ae911truth.org. He and 2,700 other architects and engineers have put skin in the game to expose the truth about 9/11.

      • B from CA

        Diane:

        Thank your husband for me.

        Diane, my thanks to your husband and all those other people who have worked to expose the truth about 9/11. I lost a friend in the attack on the Pentagon that day. One day the whole truth will come out.

      • Zeus

        Diane, When this all comes out, which some of it already has. We will learn that the Twin towers were taken down by Nuclear demolition by the Israeli demolition crew who rented office space in the twin towers. Even Donald J Trump said how did 3 Buildings fall with only 2 planes on the same day? Pull it!! That’s how. That’s a conspiracy, and how did all the Gold in the Vaults disappear just a month before the Building fell. Amazing moving tons of Gold before an attack. What foresight.

        And Never Forget the 5 Dancing Israeli’s (mossad) who were sent to NY from Israel to film the Plane Crashes into the Buildings. What foresight!!!

        And we somehow keep sending Israel Billions in out tax Monies? WTF Bigtime!! We are being killed and fleeced by this Criminal tribe. Wake up America!!

        Keep posting the truth, never let up.

    19. Redbull

      A lot of very mean spirited attacks on this site today. You give O a total pass and vilify Bush. Pretty sad bunch.

    20. swamp rat

      LBJ was the real a-hole of my generation. He made many bad decisions. He expanded the war and revved up the draft and sent my friends and I to Vietnam so fast it was unbelievable. After the slaughter of Vietnam it certainly weighted on his mind. Before LBJ died he was seeing demons after him. I think there is a weight on Bushes mind now that he is trying to deal with it in the best way he can and I wish him luck.

      This is a plutocracy, run by overgrown children and used car salesmen, just faking it.

      He didn’t give the orders, he just passed them along.
