This book takes a devastating look at the actions and policies of the George W. Bush administration in terms of their impact on women in the United States and abroad. Surprisingly, this is a largely ignored aspect of Bush's presidency, even though his policies have in many ways reversed or inhibited women's progress over the past three decades. While the media have focused on his opposition to abortion, Bush's less-publicized anti-feminist agenda has in fact been much more extensive. He has opposed women's interests in multiple ways, from shutting down women's offices in the government to de-funding programs that assist women, from opposing global women's rights treaties to supporting anti-feminist organizations. Contrary to his public claims that 'W stands for Women,' his policies, appointments and actions reveal a strongly patriarchal bent. This book also includes a chapter on the negative effects on women of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

"We're all out here in the dark, out in the coldand denying our hostile surroundings when it comes to interpreting what's going on in this evermore deranged nation. Like the best conspiracy theories, the Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File slashed through the darkness like white light. We're not quite certain what we're looking at, but it sure is dazzling. --Jonathan Vankin Author "Early in 1983, while visiting a friend in London, I was given a copy of the Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File. Fascinated by its revelations, I devoured the document in one sitting, unable to put it down. A few years later, in Australia, I was given another copy. "Here, take this, make another photocopy, and pass it on," the person told me. I took their copy (of a copy of a copy) and passed it on to someone else. "Pass it on," I repeated, as many had said before. And now, many years after Bruce Roberts, author of the original Gemstone File, died in 1976, his manuscript has become legendary. The Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File, by Stephanie Caruana, is perhaps the world's best known circulated document, one that is mentioned in dozens of books on the Kennedy assassination and the role of the Mafia in the affairs of the United Staes and other countries throughout the 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's." --David Hatcher Childress Whirlwind powering the Ancient Aliens programs on H2; Author, Publisher, Adventures Unlimited Press; "Inside the Gemstone File." 1999. "Who knows the contents?.... Did Dean read it?" --Richard Nixon, President The White House Transcripts, 1973 "I gave [the 2 manila envelops in Howard Hunt's safe] to Gray; he burned them. --John Dean Nixon's White House Counsel The White House Transcripts, 1973 "I never heard of the Gemstone File.. Good luck with your project." --John Dean Author, "Worse Than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W.Bush" 2004 "Gemstoned again! --A 24-page rant that many believed deserved an early death on the conspiracy circuit, but one that shows a remarkable durability of interest." --Kenn Thomas Author, Publisher, Steamshovel Press Inside the Genmstone File, 1999

Towel Snapping the Press follows the president's lifelong association with the media, showing how he has developed and, over the years, modified his tactics. During Bush's early years in the public eye, the press did not scrutinize him; but as president he became a subject of intense analysis. Still, many reporters find the president's disposition charming, even while they are frustrated by his message discipline and rigid control of press access to administration sources. This book not only presents interesting stories about the president from reporters' points of view, but also raises important issues that any civically engaged citizen will want to explore.

The contributors to this volume variously analyze Bush's inaugural and State of the Union addresses, as well as his political philosophy, policy issues, and the rocky relationship with the news media. Collectively, they provide insight into the role of public discourse in the campaigning and governing of the George W. Bush presidency.

It is hard to imagine a more Orwellian presidency than George W. Bush's, according to Joseph Russomanno, who demonstrates how a form of Newspeak became thoroughly entrenched in the historical record. Bush and his team, especially Vice President Dick Cheney, neither respected the Constitution nor the separation of powers. Instead, the Bush administration deliberately and explicitly violated the law in ways that will continue to be felt for generations. Tortured Logic shows us, in the words of the participants themselves, how this egregious abuse of power came about. Presenting quotations by Bush, Cheney, and others—including our leading journalists—in a narrative sequence in the book's first half, Russomanno allows the story of Bush's imperial presidency to unfold . In the second half, he focuses on the war presidency, including the way the Iraq War was sold to the American people and the methods used to “legalize” torture, or at least to protect its proponents from prosecution. By having the principal actors speak for themselves, Tortured Logic provides a unique critique of the Bush administration.
