  • Giuliani Lobs Back At Bolton: If I’m A Grenade, He’s “An Atomic Bomb”

    Do Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump want John Bolton to offer a deposition to House Democrats? One might think that, under the circumstances, the president and his attorney might want to lower the temperature with Trump’s former national security adviser after Fiona Hill’s testimony. Instead, Giuliani wasted no time in trolling Bolton over Hill’s reports about his reaction to Giuliani’s work in Ukraine.His conversation with New York Magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi wasn’t too bad: I asked Rudy Giuliani, “If you had to describe yourself as a weapon other than a hand grenade what weapon would you be?” Giuliani responded, “I’m...
  • For Criticizing Trump on Ukraine, Scarborough Suddenly Hails Bolton as 'Patriot'

    Today's Morning Joe offered up another example of what we at NewsBusters label "Sudden Respect," the phenomenon in which a person formerly despised by the liberal media suddenly earns its respect by doing something to liberal liking. Joe Scarborough has been a fierce critic of John Bolton, as illustrated here, here, and here. Scarborough actually excoriated President Trump's appointment of Bolton as his national security adviser as "a fitting coda to conservatism’s failures." But suddenly this morning, Scarborough overflowed with praise for Bolton, saying he would be putting his photo up on his wall next to that of Robert Mueller,...

    FULL TITLE: Bolton wanted White House lawyers alerted to Ukrainian efforts, called it 'drug deal,' witness tells Congress ============================================ Former national security adviser John Bolton was so disturbed by the efforts to get the Ukrainians to investigate President Donald Trump’s political opponents that he called it a “drug deal,” former White House official Fiona Hill reportedly told Congress on Monday. Hill, the former top Europe expert in Trump’s White House, testified that Bolton told her he wanted no part of the effort that involved acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, a person in the room for Hill’s testimony...
  • Trump Delivers Hard Truths to UN General Assembly: Future belongs to sovereign, independent nations

    United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres’ speech to the 74th annual High-Level General Assembly meeting on September 24th was full of generalities about world problems the UN is purporting to deal with, in contrast to President Trump's honest discussion of hard truths. “We are here to advance the common good while upholding our shared humanity and values,” the secretary general said. “That vision united the founders of our Organization.” However, Secretary General Guterres’ concept of the UN “vision” today is of a globalist institution, which was not the founders’ original vision at all. The founders' vision for a new United...

    Former national security adviser John Bolton told a former aide to President Trump on Russia to call White House lawyers to warn them about a pressure campaign on Ukraine, House investigators were reportedly told Monday. Bolton told Fiona Hill, the senior director for Russian and Eurasian affairs, to contact the lawyer for the National Security Council and say that the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani was involved in the efforts to pressure Ukraine into investigating Democrats, the New York Times reported Monday night. “I am not part of whatever drug deal Rudy and Mulvaney are cooking up,” Bolton told Hill...

    Breaking Defense (News) ^ | 30 September 2019 | Colin Clark
    WASHINGTON: Ousted National Security Advisor John Bolton said Kim Jong Un “will never give up” nuclear weapons voluntarily — an implicit warning to his former boss. Bolton was restating a consensus view of the Intelligence Community, one that runs counter to President Trump’s faith that the North Korean dynast can be wheedled and cajoled. Speaking at the Center for Strategic and International Studies today, Bolton attracted a forest of TV cameras hoping for some fireworks. They probably thought they were getting something hot when Bolton made his comment about North Korea but, as Breaking D readers know, the Intelligence Community’s...

    Former national security adviser John Bolton didn't offer any praise of President Donald Trump in remarks at a private event Wednesday, but instead took aim at his former boss' policies on the world stage, according to an attendee. Bolton, who Trump fired earlier this month, made comments at an event hosted by the Gatestone Institute in New York that the attendee characterized to CNN as scathing in their criticism of Trump's approach to Iran, North Korea and Afghanistan. Politico was first to report on Bolton's remarks. "Bolton didn't have anything positive to say about Trump," the attendee said.

    Ex-national security adviser John Bolton on Wednesday ripped President Trump’s aborted plan to invite the Taliban to Camp David, saying the move sent a “terrible signal” and was “disrespectful” to the victims of 9/11 because the Taliban had harbored al Qaeda. Bolton, speaking at a private luncheon, also said that negotiations with North Korea and Iran were “doomed to failure” on the president’s watch, two people who were there told Politico. All the North Koreans and Iranians want is relief from sanctions to support their economies, Bolton told guests at the event hosted by the Gatestone Institute, a conservative think...
  • JOHN BOLTON: FREEPER LOVE FEST GONE AWRY

    Let's cut the crap. He was everybody's favorite here at this site for the longest time. 'Best Secretary of State we never had.' The Democrat Senators wouldn't approve him for the UN post. 43' had to go to a recess appointment. He would have gutted the (deep)State Department as we all wanted. Then the stupid '2k troops for Venezuela' clipboard memo and the calling out by Tucker Carlson. Has he been exposed by Trump or were the Democrats right all along? No sweeping under the rug this time.
  • Trump grew weary of Bolton’s push for military force against Venezuela

    McClatchy News Service ^ | Sept 11 2019 | MICHAEL WILNER
    President Donald Trump ousted John Bolton in part due to frustration with his third national security adviser’s guidance to pair military power with economic pressure against Venezuela, according to current and former administration officials. One senior administration official said that Trump had grown weary of repeated vows from Bolton that Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro would be out of office in short order. A second official said that they had clashed over Bolton’s efforts to advance planning for military intervention. That official pointed to the administration’s national security strategy, which predated Bolton’s tenure and called for “strong diplomatic engagement” to isolate...
  • Targeting Trump is No.1 priority for the ‘Resistance’ – even if it means rehabilitating John Bolton

    RT ^ | September 12, 2019 | Danielle Ryan
    John Bolton’s departure from the White House was inevitable – as was his instant rehabilitation by the woke Resistance – but as the reasons for his ouster emerge, the bizarre embrace of this warmonger has only gotten worse. First came the efforts to cast Bolton as some kind of “important check” on Donald Trump’s impulses. God forbid, after all, he might opt for diplomacy over sheer brute force. Then Trump spoke and confirmed all their worst fears. Bolton’s “tough guy” rhetoric was indeed hampering diplomatic efforts with North Korea, particularly as he suggested the US follow the “Libya model” in...
  • Close shave: Donald Trump should have followed his instincts and steered clear of John Bolton

    The Star Ledger of Newark ^ | 09.12.19 | Paul Mulshine
    One of the toughest questions for any politician – or anyone for that matter – is the question of whether he should trust his instincts. The case of John Bolton offers a textbook example. Reports say that President Trump’s first impression regarding John Bolton was to steer clear of him because of his mustache. Perhaps it might have made more sense to steer clear of him for the obvious reason that his foreign-policy views are demonstrably insane. But as reasons go, that mustache would have done just fine. Various wags said it made Bolton look like a walrus. Others said...

    President Trump on Wednesday ripped his ex-national security adviser John Bolton, calling him “Mr. Tough Guy” and asserting that he’d damaged Trump’s effort to cut a nuke deal with Kim Jong Un. “John wasn’t in line with what we were doing and actually in some cases he thought it was too tough what we were doing,” he said. “Mr. Tough Guy, you know, you had to go into Iraq. Going into Iraq was something he felt very strongly about,” the president told reporters after a White House meeting on vaping.

    SNIP He slammed a mistake Bolton made early in his tenure at the White House when he discussed a "Libyan model" in the context of North Korea — which that country took as a sign that its leadership could meet the fate of former Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi. SNIP “So, John is somebody that I actually got along with very well. He made some very big mistakes,” Trump said a day after his abrupt ousting of Bolton. He said the "Libyan model" remark had set back talks with North Korea and was “not a good statement to make.” “And it...

    Three top aides to former national security adviser John Bolton submitted their resignations on Wednesday a day after Bolton and President Donald Trump parted ways. Garrett Marquis, Bolton’s top spokesman, Sarah Tinsley, his communications director, and scheduler Christine Samuelian all resigned in what a source called an amicable fashion. “It was an honor to serve my country, and I wish the president and the administration success moving forward,” Marquis said in a brief statement. The trio of aides has worked for Bolton for years. SNIP

    American Thinker ^ | March 24, 2018 | Daniel John Sobieski
    The departure of national security adviser H.R. McMaster and his replacement by former U.N. ambassador John Bolton are both significant and welcome. Bolton will be a team player on Team Trump and not someone with his own agenda who seeks the advice and counsel of those trying to undermine the Trump administration. Leaks such as the one of the memo warning President Trump not to congratulate Vladimir Putin on Putin's re-election will undoubtedly stop, as McMaster and his staff were viewed as the source for many of them.
