    Gordon Brown yesterday surprised commentators by refusing to rule out military action against Iran. “I firmly believe that the sanctions policy that we are pursuing will work, but I’m not one who’s going forward to say that we rule out any particular form of action,” the new British Prime Minister told a news conference. While Brown had previously seemed to follow his European partners France and Germany by playing down the idea of using force against Tehran, his line on Iran yesterday was compatible with the more hawkish position of President Bush. What are we to make of these maneuvers?...

    @realDonaldTrumpJohn Bolton was one of the dumbest people in government that I’ve had the “pleasure” to work with. A sullen, dull and quiet guy, he added nothing to National Security except, “Gee, let’s go to war.” Also, illegally released much Classified Information. A real dope!
  • John Bolton Rips Pompeo for ‘Delusional’ Comments on Transition: He’s ‘Eviscerated His Credibility Internationally’

    Former Trump national security adviser John Bolton piled on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for his comments Tuesday about a transfer of power. Wolf Blitzer brought up Pompeo’s remark about a transition “to a second Trump administration,” and said, “That sounds like something we might hear in Russia, not the United States of America.” “How dangerous is this?” he asked. Bolton called it “delusional for Mike to say that,” and added, “He has eviscerated his credibility internationally because I think there are very few people, even in the U.S. government who believe that’s the case. I don’t know why he...

    Former National Security Adviser John Bolton said on Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Situation Room” that President Donald Trump has been a “useful idiot” in his dealing with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping, and North Korean Kim Jong-un. Anchor Wolf Blitzer asked, “Lieutenant Colonel Vindman also told The Atlantic magazine President Trump is in his words, Vladimir Putin is a useful idiot. Do you agree with that characterization?

    Former White House national security adviser John Bolton said in comments published Friday that he never heard President Trump refer to slain American soldiers buried at a French cemetery as "losers" and "suckers," after the allegations were made in a bombshell report published on Thursday. "I didn't hear that," Bolton told the New York Times. "I'm not saying he didn't say them later in the day or another time, but I was there for that discussion." Bolton's remarks came after Trump himself denied any allegations of disrespectful comments toward American soldiers killed in comment, which were first reported by The...

    Fox News ^ | August 04 2020 | Adam Shaw
    Former national security adviser John Bolton on Tuesday accused Democrats of having taken the “opportunity” of the impeachment inquiry and having driven it “straight into a ditch” by turning it into a partisan fight. Bolton was widely criticized by Democrats for refusing to testify in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump’s actions in relation to Ukraine -- only to release a book on his time in office after the trial was over, when Trump was acquitted by the Senate. But on Tuesday he blamed Democrats for the outcome of the process, saying they’d turned it into a “partisan war.”

    White House officials held a series of discussions over the past two years on the possibility of resuming US nuclear testing, according to the former national security adviser John Bolton. “Certainly the subject was discussed,” Bolton, a fierce advocate of testing, told the Guardian. However, there was opposition from some in the administration who felt current computer-based testing of US warheads was sufficient, and no decision was made by the time Bolton left the White House last September. When the prospect of the first US underground nuclear test in nearly three decades came up at a White House meeting in...

    Kim Yo-jong, sister to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, published a poorly written “press statement” Friday praising Kim’s relationship with President Donald Trump, rejecting further summits between them, and requesting DVD copies of Fourth of July celebration footage. Kim Yo-jong’s statement appeared to be a response to speculation triggered by leftist South Korean President Moon Jae-in that Trump and her brother may soon host another summit to ease tensions between the two countries, which have technically been at war for 70 years. During the course of publicizing his book against Trump, former National Security Advisor John Bolton also hinted at...

    Four months before the next US presidential election, Donald Trump’s poll numbers are in a slump. Disaffected conservatives call him incompetent and are campaigning against the Republican president, citing the upward curve of new coronavirus cases in the US, the millions of unemployed Americans, and the protests and racial tension in the wake of George Floyd’s killing. They echo Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, who says Trump’s leadership is inadequate. One of his three former national security advisors, John Bolton, joined DW’s Tim Sebastian to discuss his impressions of President Trump on Conflict Zone. […] Bolton characterizes White...

    Speaking on "Face the Nation," former National Security Adviser John Bolton dismissed US President Donald Trump's claims that he wasn't briefed about intelligence suggesting that Russia commissioned Taliban-linked fighters to kill US soldiers, The Guardian reports. "All intelligence is distributed along the spectrum of uncertainty," Bolton said. "And this intelligence ... by the administration’s own admission, was deemed credible enough to give to our allies. So the notion that you only give the really completely 100% verified intelligence to the president would mean you give him almost nothing. And that’s just not the way the system works." Former National Security...

    For US National Security Advisor John Bolton warned that President Trump’s reelection could imperil Israel. Speaking with Israel’s Channel 13 in an interview which is set to be aired Thursday night, Bolton said he fears that if President Trump is reelected this November, it could create a ‘risk’ for Israel. Specifically, Bolton claimed that Trump is “eager” to open negotiations with Iran and could offer sanctions relief, something which would pose a “a danger”. .....

    Top officials in the White House were aware in early 2019 of classified intelligence indicating Russia was secretly offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans, a full year earlier than has been previously reported, according to U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the intelligence. The assessment was included in at least one of President Donald Trump’s written daily intelligence briefings at the time, according to the officials. Then-National Security Adviser John Bolton also told colleagues at the time that he briefed Trump on the intelligence assessment in March 2019.

    The liberal hosts of "The View" had some strong words for former National Security Adviser John Bolton whom they argued should have spoken out against President Trump while House Democrats worked to impeach him at the end of last year. Co-host Sunny Hostin outright accused Bolton of being "one of the very reasons, if not the reason, that President Trump is still in office, and wasn't impeached. Help me understand why your silence is not complicity in this," she said. The House ultimately impeached Trump along partisan lines but the GOP-led Senate declined to convict Trump on the two articles...

    John Bolton would consider testifying against Attorney General William Barr if House Democrats were to call him, he told The Washington Post in an interview Tuesday. "I'll certainly consider it if and when it comes up and consult with my lawyers and try and do the right thing," Bolton told The Post's Robert Costa in a virtual interview. The House Judiciary Committee is preparing to subpoena AG Barr in an investigation into the firing of Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman last weekend. "You know I'd rather not get into a hypothetical about that," Bolton told Costa....

    Tamarac’s vice mayor, who leads an evangelical North Lauderdale church as Pastor Fire when he’s off the dais, announced publicly he plans to add a yarmulke to his wardrobe … in a manner of speaking. Just after decrying Mayor Michelle Gomez’s use of identity politics to win an election, the pastor announced at the June 10 meeting that he’s undergoing a conversion to Judaism. “I am a Christian,” he said, during a fiery, freewheeling exchange between him and the mayor. “I am going through a conversion to join the Jewish community as we speak. And I am learning Hebrew.” The...
