He should be behind bars.
He enlisted the rogue Bannon/Mercer directed, fuck-with-our-heads Cambridge Analytica data coven to find ways to make Americans love war.
Carrie Levine at The Center for Public Integrity fills us in on Trump’s latest blow-America-up appointee.
Finger-pointing, hyper-ventilating, hortatory histrionics–did he and Trump train together?
Did I forget eye bulging?
Juan Cole at Informed Consent reviews Bolton’s CV:
Bolton “helped lie our country into an illegal war of aggression that killed several hundred thousand Iraqis, wounded over a million, and displaced 4 million from their homes, helped deliver Baghdad into the hands of Iran, and helped create ISIL, which blew up Paris. In a just world, Bolton would be on trial at the Hague for war crimes.
“He is also in the back pocket of the MEK Iranian terrorist organization, which despite its violent and smelly past has proved so useful to those plotting the apocalyptic destruction of Iran that the Washington elite decided to take it off the list of terrorist organizations in 2012.”
Jonathan Swan in Axios recaps the catastrophic implications of Trump’s latest declaration of war on everything and everyone:
“Bolton said, ‘Mr. President you ran on this agenda. You ran against Iran. And if you want to hire me, that’s what I’m going to produce for you.'”
He will take out Mueller and the Democratic party by taking out America, as well as the rest of the world.
The Dems had better realize that Pompeo, Haspel, and Bolton spell 2018 electoral strategy and, for once, proactively resist America’s bipartisan support of war as all-purpose panacea.
We are governed by a sociopath enabled by a GOP majority that is traitorously supporting him every inch of the way.
His statements on Pompeo and Bolton are completely inadequate.
We need leadership from the Democratic leadership.
And if Sen. Schumer thinks an attack on Iran is in Israel’s interests, let alone America’s, he is cooking without gas.
And, well, you’ve really got something.
Watching Symphonie Concertante from the wings of the theater, the stage during the orchestral climaxes seems to be a geyser of women’s legs vectoring in every direction, enormous white tutus frothing and cascading in mathematically controlled euphoria, and very loud pointe shoes hammering in time to those surging strings.
The first time I had that experience, I almost felt submerged in the tumult of that classically pure and palpably stampeding ballet.
Was anyone, except Trump and his entire cabinet, as unqualified for a government position as John Bolton?
A horrifying appointment.
This confirms Trump’s Plan B: now begins the run-up to our midterm wars.
Naturally, the Mercers are on board.
As Jane Mayer tweets:
“Bolton, like Trump, owes much to hard-right hedge fund donor Robert Mercer. Mercer has donated $5M to Bolton’s super-pac since 2013, and is Bolton’s biggest donor. Bolton has relied on Cambridge Analytica, which Mercer helped found and fund, like Trump, too. Big Mercer influence.”
How have we allowed these evil, sick people to take over this country?
He won’t play defensive on that how-will-you-pay-for-it standard-issue hustle, which is sprung by the GOP as well as Democratic “fiscal hawks” whenever a politician advances legislation that actually address human needs.
When it comes to the black hole of military spending and tax cuts for super-rich individuals and corporations alike, the question, of course, never even comes up.
Regarding Schatz’s proposal for debt-free college tuition, Ella Nilsson writes for Vox:
“I don’t play the pay-for game. I reject the pay-for game,” the senator said. “After the Republicans did the $1.5 trillion in unpaid-for tax cuts, and as we’re doing a bipartisan appropriations bill — which I support — which is also an increase in federal spending [that’s] unpaid for, I just reject the idea that only progressive ideas have to be paid for. We can work on that as we go through the process, but I think it’s a trap.”
She recalls it for Wanderlust Journal: “Sexy, Sultry, and Migraine-Free.”
