Left Wing Media finally find a reason to praise George W. Bush – for his pro-Islam remarks after 9/11

“Ben Carson and Donald Trump — you are no George W. Bush. And neither are you, Bobby Jindal, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee and Scott Walker,” whines David Haynes of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.


JS online  Six days after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, which were perpetrated by Muslim extremists, President George W. Bush went to the Islamic Center of Washington, D.C., to give a speech (see video below). Concern was rising among Muslims about reprisal attacks, and Bush tried to tamp down the raw emotions as the ruins of the Twin Towers lay smoldering at Ground Zero.

“The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam,” the president said. “That’s not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorists don’t represent peace. They represent evil and war.” Bush led Americans to higher ground — it was one of his finest moments as president. But some Republican candidates now insist on leading us into the muck.

Carson told Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” last week that he couldn’t support putting a Muslim “in charge of this nation” even though the Constitution is blind on religion.


Trump smilingly played along with a supporter at a New Hampshire town hall meeting who told the real estate baron that “we have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims.” The man also claimed President Barack Obama is Muslim and parroted a common meme among the right-wing fringe about supposed terrorist “training camps” in the U.S.  “We need this question,” Trump said with a chuckle.



Bobby Jindal, the Louisiana governor, has warned that Muslims are trying to establish Sharia law in “no-go zones” in western nations, a widely ridiculed notion that even Fox News distanced itself from.


Mike Huckabee has claimed Obama coddles Muslims. “The one group of people that can know they have his undying, unfailing support would be the Muslim community,” the former Arkansas governor said.


And Scott Walker, who quit the race this week amid a cash crunch, declined earlier this year to say whether he thought Obama was Christian — “I’ve never asked him that,” he said.

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas gave a similar answer last week, a politically cute wink-and-a-nod that leaves open the possibility that people who believe such rubbish will think you believe it, too.


Marginalizing Islam in these ways is crass and cynical. It is pandering to a slice of Republican voters who are worried about Islamic extremism but aren’t making a clear distinction between terrorists and the vast majority of American Muslims who love their country and abhor violence committed in the name of their faith.

Republicans or those who lean Republican have far more negative views of Muslims than do Democrats, according to a survey conducted last year by the Pew Research Center. Republicans rated Muslims about the same as atheists and far lower than any other religious group.


 In a Gallup poll this month, 54% of those identifying as Republicans said they wouldn’t vote for a Muslim for president. A PPP poll from August found that 54% of Republicans believe Obama is a Muslim. No surprise: The Washington Post’s “Monkey Cage” blog found a strong connection between Trump’s support and a belief that Obama is lying about being a Christian.

BNI Readers will recognize the man standing directly behind Bush as Nihad Awad of designated terrorist group CAIR.

George Herbert Walker Bushand Barbara Pierce Bush have been married for 70 years, holding the record for the longest-married presidential couple.Peter Schweizer, author of a biography of the family, has described the Bushes as “the most successful political dynasty in American history”.[1] According to some online sources,[2] the Bush family is of primarily English and German descent.



Patrilineal line[edit]

  • John Bush (1593-1670), The last Old World ancestor
    • Samuel Bush (1647-1733)
      • Richard Bush (c. 1676–1732 in Bristol, Plymouth Colony)
        • Timothy Bush (1728–1821 in Springport, New York) may have been the son of Richard Bush.[citation needed]
          • Timothy Bush, Jr. (1761–1850 in Penfield, New York) was the son of Timothy Bush.
            • Obadiah Newcomb Bush (January 28, 1797–1851) was the son of blacksmith Timothy Bush, Jr. and Lydia Newcomb, and was born in Penfield, New York on January 28, 1797. He left home during the War of 1812 and married Harriet Smith (1800–1867) (Cambridge, New York, May 12, 1800 – Cincinnati, Ohio, June 21, 1867), the daughter of Dr. Sanford Smith (1760–1815) (Stonington, Connecticut, February 27, 1760 – Scipio, New York, June 15, 1815) and his wife Priscilla Whippo Smith (1763–1838) (Cambridge, New York, c. 1763 – Pottstown, Pennsylvania, August 26, 1838), in Rochester, New York on November 8, 1821. He and his wife had seven children. Through his son Reverend James Smith Bush (1825–1889), he is the great-great-grandfather of former President George Herbert Walker Bush and the great-great-great-grandfather of President George W. Bush. In Rochester, Obadiah was employed as a schoolmaster and was also a well known abolitionist. He served as vice president of the Anti-Slavery Society and was on a committee to nominate candidates for justice of the peace. His brother Henry, a manufacturer of stoves, was also well known for his involvement in abolitionist activities. He was a participant in the Underground Railroad, and even petitioned the New York State Legislature to secede from the Union in a protest against slavery. The Rochester Daily Advertiser accused him of encouraging “anarchy.” Eventually Obadiah, Henry and possibly another brother or two went off to find their fortunes in the California Gold Rush of 1849. After two years of toiling in California he began passage home, by ship, to retrieve his family in New York. He died, however, aboard ship and was given a sea burial. According to the book The Faith of George W. Bush: “[He] left his home during the War of 1812, became a schoolmaster, then caught gold fever and left for California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Two years later, he tried to return home to reclaim his family and take them west. He died in the attempt, though, and was buried at sea. leaving his wife and seven children alone in Rochester, New York.”[citation needed]

WSJ – Bush Sr. In Business  With bin Ladin Family  Via Carlyle Group

WASHINGTON, DC -Judicial Watch, the public interest law firm that investigates and prosecutes government corruption and abuse, reacted with disbelief to The Wall Street Journal report of yesterday that George H.W. Bush, the father of President Bush, works for the bin Laden family business in Saudi Arabia through the Carlyle Group, an international consulting firm. The senior Bush had met with the bin Laden family at least twice. (Other top Republicans are also associated with the Carlyle group, such as former Secretary of State James A. Baker.) The terrorist leader Osama bin Laden had supposedly been “disowned” by his family, which runs a multi-billion dollar business in Saudi Arabia and is a major investor in the senior Bush’s firm. Other reports have questioned, though, whether members of his Saudi family have truly cut off Osama bin Laden. Indeed, the Journal also reported yesterday that the FBI has subpoenaed the bin Laden family business’s bank records.
Judicial Watch earlier this year had strongly criticized President Bush’s father’s association with the Carlyle Group, pointing out in a March 5 statement that it was a “conflict of interest (which) could cause problems for America’s foreign policy in Middle East and Asia.” Judicial Watch called for the senior Bush to resign from the firm then.
“This conflict of interest has now turned into a scandal. The idea of the President’s father, an ex-president himself, doing business with a company under investigation by the FBI in the terror attacks of September 11 is horrible. President Bush should not ask, but demand, that his father pull out of the Carlyle Group,” stated Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman.
“This has the potential of making ‘Billygate’ (Jimmy Carter’s brother’s dealings with Libya) look like small potatoes,” added Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
