2. Oh, I noticed it. But I did not tune in to a single program
featuring war criminal Dubya Bush."The NSA’s capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything. There would be no place to hide." Frank Church "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." - Frederic Bastiat, 1848

5. What do you think the point is?

8. I suspect it will be larger

7. Not really Hillary its deeper than that
If you notice none of the TV media stars blinked an eye having him on.
and even danced with him like Ellen. ………….. She’s gay right? Boy is she a lefty…lol with a short memory or should I say a convenient $ memory. Even Obama’s wife went all lovey dovey on him as has the Clinton cabal.
This has nothing to do with so called Christian forgiveness since he is a war criminal. Its orchestrated, contrived and purposeful in warping the minds of the public.
Whose’s behind it?……I don’t know but…… It an’t George jr. who is the turtle on the top of the fence post.

9. Turtle on top of the fence post
It’s sinister. And what makes it even more obviously part of some diabolical plot, is the fact they can’t even bring someone new into the picture to try and sell their wares.
Something sinister is afoot. I know I sound very CT. But with everything we now know, it’s difficult not to go there

10. I'm seeing some interesting things on the fringe in the ufo world
regarding UFO disclosure world
We have the David Wilcock, Christopher Good UFO disclosure scenario
and then the
the Peter Levenda/ Tom Delonge scenario…. remember the band blink 182?
Both are major in this field but opposite in their approach in a way.
I’ve read many of Levenda’s books and he is a great researcher that uses the FOIA and German archives for his research on the esoteric, corporate, NAZI, US south american connections.
David is out there but interesting.
Both camps are interesting if you want to go deep down this UFO rabbit hole and both say its gonna happen soon….. who knows?
You want CT? This is the ultimate CT………LOL
Peter on Rune Soup
But both groups are saying its happening within the next 2 months.

11. LOL! Yep, that's the ultimate
Although, I have always believed that to think we are the only “intelligent” life out there is REALLY arrogant.

12. You know my father's history with nukes
I heard stories during my parent’s high ranking cocktail parties that when the liquor flowed there were loose lips.
Look into Robert Hastings and nukes story, no bullshit on this story …… for the real deal and I’m familiar with these stories
To me its not a question anymore ‘are we alone?’ Its more like
What the fuck do they want? Many, including me,say its opposing forces and their alliances, and non alliances playing this game
But its all a game isn’t it, in this holographic quantum universe we live in?

Yep, that’s exactly what it is

14. I saw GWB on Kimmel.
And scarily, I think it might work. He really comes off as a nice, fun guy when he’s just shooting the shit. And having him come out against Trump about the importance of an independent press, and whatever else, makes him look like the reasonable, ‘informed’ one.The DNC can try to squash us but we'll just come back stronger.

17. I saw it too and had a very different opinion
First of all, it leaves me cold and galled that Bush would paint ‘personable’ portraits of soldiers for whom
his administration had no regard at all, having sent them into bogus wars for profit…so many died,
were injured and psychologically damaged.
And it left me questioning if he truly painted those Vet portraits or if that was just another lie.
First of all, I didn’t feel he had any empathy with the vets he painted that were in the audience.
They were painted from photographs rather than the soldiers modeling live.
When Kimmel asked one soldier and his mother if they owned or had seen the portraits in person they said no,
they had only seen the book. Before the mother could finish her sentence Bush said something to
the effect of ‘don’t get any ideas about that’ which I took to mean they would not see them in person
or own the original. Sure seems that giving them as gifts to the soldiers would have much more
meaning and significance.
Kimmel hinted that the soldiers themselves ought to have the portraits or be able to see them
in person. And then when he suggested to Bush that they use the commercial break to draw each
other, Kimmel again was adamant that the two soldiers in the audience should get the drawings they’d done.
And it was strange that Bush’s drawing was so awful, not even coming close to looking like Kimmel, while
Kimmel’s drawing looked a lot like Bush. Hmmmmm…..
Something fishy about the whole thing.
Why is Bush re-emerging from the rock he crawled under now?

20. Wow. I missed that whole part about the soldiers!
I was working on my computer while it was on. I just got the impression that he was joking with Kimmel like a good ol’ boy and people would see him as likeable. (I never will!)
Thanks for posting your take on it since I didn’t notice/see that part of it.The DNC can try to squash us but we'll just come back stronger.

21. It was a subtle dynamic going on between the lines, so I'm guessing most people
didn’t pick up on it. I think Kimmel kind of exposed Bush in this subtle way. Would
be curious if anyone else picked up on this.

15. Out of the closet under the premise he no longer is one of the worst presidents.
Kimmel agreed to be a part of this charade…talk about normalizing evil. ack

18. Normalizing Evil for sure:
He’s taken up, in his Post Presidential years, painting cute pictures of cats and Michelle Obama just loves him along with Hillary Clinton. Photos everywhere posted here of the Bear Hugs and Kisses to Bush II by the top representatives of the Dem Party. Nancy Reagan’s funeral with Hillary all over Chimpy and more of Obama and Michelle in many photo ops with Michelle’s arms around him hugging in glee.
It doesn’t matter for Dem Presidents and their former First Ladies to just hug and kiss this guy because he is: One of Them and They are One of Him.
That old expression “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words,” comes to mind. In this case…Many Pictures chumming it up with Bush II are overwhelming in showing how Bush II is revered by the party he wasn’t a member of.
And, one might ask: Why is that?

19. They have a guilty conscience?
Drones might do that, selling arms up the wazoo to Saudi Arabia….no one at the top went to jail for the crash of 2007?
I could go on. lol
Kidding aside, I don’t know why but it seems the Obama’s are fine with it. They have no obligation to take it that far to be courteous when they’re in public..ack.

Former Gitmo prisoner details U.S. interrogation tactics to ‘60 Minutes’
By Olivia Beavers – 03/12/17 07:00 PM EDT
A former Guantanamo Bay prisoner of 14 years described to “60 Minutes” Sunday his experience under the now-outlawed U.S. enhanced interrogation program.
In Mohamedou Slahi’s first televised interview since being released, he details the special interrogation program he was subjected to in 2003, which he said then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld personally approved.
