  1. when trump time comes, melania must go to kremlin square and not capitol hill, no americans will give an eulogy and inly putin will…and putin will say how great the useful idiot was

  2. Hebrews 9:27 God made a way for escape thru His Son Christ Jesus. I hope he chose rightly. Today is the day of Salvation. Choose this day who you will serve. A man can not serve two masters. either he will hate the one and love the other… Peace to all the Bush family during this trying time. In God we Trust.

  3. HW the last real president that knew what it was like to fight for freedom… WWII vet. Bush Jr is another story…Lots of american lives lost and money spent in Iraq…Did not.need to happen.

  4. People, viewers of YouTube, ask Google owned YouTube to add the ability for each viewer to block the comments section while viewing the video content. I want to not be exposed to the spam or degrading evil comments being posted under the videos I want to watch. Also, I don't want that crazy constant stream of lies and bots spam that spew untruths and political or religious based comments to be read by my young family members. Many have no idea of the truth or the historical reality of stories/news. Send your comments or requests to Google and/ or YouTube. I'm to the point I will stop watching YouTube if they don't allow each of us the ability to control the content we wish to view, minus the comments if we wish. That's why I watch PBS videos, no comments allowed!

  5. No matter the negative comments here, the man George HW Bush served his nation well. His example should be the example we all follow. All of us have a Dad, to have to say a final goodbye here is the hardest thing to accomplish. George W Bush accomplished it well, following the example his Dad taught him. Tears represent a healing process of the heart. I lost my Dad much too soon at the tender age of 14, I remember collapsing into my Mom's arms, sobbing as she told me the news. I too remember she asked me to sit down, the news is bad. Trying my first attempts to become a man I told I would stand. Once she told me my Dad had died I collapsed into her arms, in which my first attempt ended in failure, however she never brought it to my attention. I Loved and still Love my Dad, this is 2018, it was January 1972 when I got the news of my Dad's passing. I am the image of both my Dad and Grandfather, and I am fiercely proud of that. I still cry thinking of both of the men I was privileged to call Dad and Grand Dad. I cried with George W Bush as he broke at the podium talking about the man he called Dad. I am relieved that we do not have to be strong and politically correct, we can cry as men and should cry. This episode will stay with me the rest of my life, especially when I think of my Dad and end up crying. It is Love that causes this emotion to come forward. To the entire Bush Family I say, God will heal the hurt, it is very much acceptable to show emotion, You will be in my prayers when ever I think of the loss you have suffered, I know it well. To George Herbert Walker Bush, Rest in Peace brother, you were an example of mine when I put on the nation's uniform. Finally to our lovely country, God Bless America!

  6. God bless to the bushes and the 41 president you are a beautiful man you have served our country well thank you may you and your wife and sweet child rip together

  7. Yes, George Bush fought in WWII. Later, as CIA director, he supported dictatorships all over the world. As Vice-President, he helped Israel arm neo-Nazi death squads in El Salvador and Guatemala, with the result that 500,000 people were killed and democracy was prevented from breaking out. As President, Bush worked closely with Saddam Hussein to ensure the successful gassing of Kurds — Hussein's "own people."

    A few years later, George Bush Jr. decided the gassing sponsored by his father had been the crime of the century, invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000 civilians. This was based on a precedent set by his father, who had attacked Iraq in 1991 and killed 500,000 people fleeing the US forces.

    Finally, George Bush helped create NAFTA, which drove tens of thousands of rural Mexicans off their farms and created the immigration crisis facing the US today. Lastly, lets not forget the contempt George Bush and his wife Barbara showed for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

    This is the man we are honoring today.

  8. Bush was very crupt globalist he started the mass imagration in 1990 he brought them here to take american jobs.america worshing the devil how sick

  9. She looks like an 👼, singing so beautiful and precious of God's love. Thank you Reba for your sweet kindness and love for your country and The late Mr. President Bush

  10. What would really help Make America become Great Again is for 43 to help 45 DRAIN THE SWAMP! 🇺🇸🙏🏽…we must re-educate the Dems or DEPORT THEM!

  11. President George H Walker Bush 41st President of America God bless your soul “the whole world miss you 😘 “ !!!!

  12. It was a remarkable funeral and I did tear-up by the poignancy of it all, especially the military respect and the people waiting for the motorcade and train to pass. I learned the whole funeral affair is spoken to the President after his inauguration to the Presidency, that is, his wishes just in case. Then, years of rehearsal are performed by the chosen military troops, thousands of them, for the event and the transportation choreography. I wonder if George H.W. Bush knew what a long drawn out event it was going to be would he have approved? Funerals such as this are really for the living and a show of love and commitment to other nations about how we honor our beloved leaders. As for me, when I die I would hope my wishes will be carried out as I have stated; drag my bloated carcass into the back of my truck and drive it out to the desert or woods and just dump it out; no hole, no eulogy, no funeral, no fuss; maybe just ask the coroner to donate the body to medical science and organ donation, for it is our soul that we ask God to save and reclaim to be recycled for new life, for God owns our souls and in His infinite mercy has given us life. And, if we believe through our faith that God will save our soul, that joy of knowing and believing that is a glorious thing. I ask in my prayers that God save my soul to fight in His Army to battle evil on His behalf.

  13. Where is our honor as Americans. This whole thing has been not a memorial but a slight roast. With a slight honor at the end. Instead of a total honor of a president

  14. Weird to see Anglican church in America with its rituals! Somehow Evangelical and Pentecostal churches appear to be synonymous with the US

  15. too much. just too much. we all have to get in line?
    what did the Lord Jesus Christ say?
    But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
    (luke 6)
    and what was this church he went to? that was his church? what church is good these days? what one? any? i don't see any, if there is even one. two of the 'reverends' at his church are women. it is so funny that people who say they follow the Lord continue to say that when they go against his word. God said that women were not to be in authority over men in the church. it is not wise that they are in authority over men in other spheres either, but i am just being specific here. but these types of women say they follow God and yet do not do what God's word says. but then again, the jews say they follow God too and they don't do what God says. they reject the Messiah. and mormons say they follow God. they do not. buddhists? they are damned. so many messed up people. when you begin to be messed up at the outset, how can you be right in the end? i'm just saying. it seemed like a church of rich people. all the pomp and stuff. not, for example, a country baptist church. part of the accoutrements of a particular kind and style of life? i don't know. i do know though if someone is spiritually aware and discerning that when something like this makes itself known.. how can a person continue to be a part of that place? that church? a church like that that can't even tell as much as a 5 year old can what the bible says and what it means. oh.. it means what it says.. by the way.

  16. May God bless this man and his family.  He was truly a "charter member" of America's greatest generation and pray for his family during this difficult time.

  17. It's sad that we didn't see the whole internment. Maybe they decided to make it private obviously. I remember Mr. Reagan's it was so emotional.

  18. 🕸Spies🕸 Like Uz!

    I knew Bush personally from many years ago being the CIA Director I guess it was his staff of DoD Generals below him would gather and meet me and give me high metals of honor for doing stuff the press look at as the most horrendous acts of terrorism that generals knew was censored out of the news media each time they would all laugh at the vulgar news and me being honored by them.
    But Bush was not a lizard!
    I had the keys to Denver CIA Regional HQ I walk in one Saturday everyone was gone. I look in the hallway before central command HQ found Bush hanging upside down from fire sprinkler from the ceiling by his claws bare ass naked clothing and skin below him🕸 on the floor,
    he was a huge black and white spider🕷! I presume a male black widow. I had a machine gun, though, Nah, I'll just let it go I know he is gonna be a clone walk around him!

    Try to notice Bush's stink box being hoisted with ease just like JFKz🕷 spiders don't weigh much around 30 lbs at the rotunda 1 Paul burrier lefts JFKz🕸 stink box with 1 finger and it slides out place on the table to lean on it!

    By the way RFK Stinkbox train reason for being late I used dynamite blew it off the track walk back with the conductor found 2 stink box open 1 empty the next had a jack in the box a huge black widow spider with white marks from bullet perforation and of course Robby was alive and talk with his zoo prude accent saying good grief can you give me a break just leave me alone stop harassing me.
    I said, yea I guess could overlook a few things your playing along with the game I can drop it.

  19. The president of America Donald J Trump “You say the America Flag stays down for one ☝️ month Mr President Donald J Trump we Love ❤️ you forever

  20. I Hope They Sing Beautiful Songs like the Service Before. The Choir Was So Beautiful. God Bless The Bush Family. God Give Them Straight..
