 Chicken Hawk Bolton Fired

Russia: house of cards

State TV channel Rossiya 1 describes Mr Bolton as a "classic hawk of American politics" with a hard stance on Iran, Venezuela and Russia. "Bolton is known as the person who is ready to bomb any problem," its correspondent says.

Iran: chaos in Washington

Iranian newspapers are reporting the story prominently. Arman newspaper carries the headline "Chaos in the White House" while Sharq daily asks "Was Bolton sacrificed for Iran?"

Israel: complex legacy

Newspapers in Israel see Mr Bolton's departure as a blow for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Mr Bolton was Mr Netanyahu's "most enthusiastic supporter in Washington", says Amos Harel, defence analyst for Haaretz, calling his departure "a significant shift in policy towards Iran".

Korean peninsula: more flexibility?

The view today from South Korea's state news agency Yonhap is that Mr Bolton's departure "may bring flexibility to the upcoming nuclear talks with North Korea but could undercut efforts to achieve the regime's complete denuclearisation."

Venezuela: source of pressure

Venezuelan pro-government newspaper Ultimas Noticias quotes Vice-President for Economy Tareck El Aissami as saying on Twitter that Bolton was the one who "lied the most about our people and caused them most damage".

Middle East: missiles and sanctions

Turkey's nationalist Sozcu newspaper highlights the tension that has grown between Ankara and Washington over the purchase of Russian S-400 air defence missiles - and puts the blame on John Bolton.
“It will be fit to call Bolton not a security adviser striving for security but a security-destroying adviser who is wrecking peace and security,” the spokesperson said, according to AP. “It is not at all strange that perverse words always come out from the mouth of a structurally defective guy, and such a human defect deserves an earlier vanishing.” 

The representative reportedly called Bolton an “ignorant” extremist who has been anxious to start a war with North Korea throughout his high-level participation in several presidencies.

North Korea’s leadership will be delighted at Donald Trump’s decision to fire his hawkish national security adviser and to rely more on his own “gut feelings” on foreign policy challenges, analysts have told The Telegraph.

The US president said he fired John Bolton on Tuesday, citing differences of opinion on how to tackle the diplomatic impasse with Pyongyang, as well as similarly difficult positions with regard to Afghanistan and Iran. 


An Axios report in July suggested that, from Trump’s perspective, Bolton’s aggression was the main reason to keep him around. Trump is said to have joked about Bolton’s bloodlust with foreign leaders, saying things like, “John has never seen a war he doesn’t like.” Such lines signaled that if people didn’t like Trump’s methods, they might have to deal with bad cop Bolton.

Despite Bolton’s best efforts, Trump pursued diplomatic talks with North Korea and resisted escalating tensions despite a resumption in missile tests over the last few weeks. And even after reimposing crushing sanctions on Iran, Trump repeatedly said he’d be willing to negotiate a “better” nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic’s top officials.
There’s little indication Trump wants to ignite another war in the Middle East despite his tough Iran stance. In fact, the Washington Post reported Tuesday that Bolton was “devastated” Trump chose not to attack Iran after it downed an American surveillance drone in June.

The two have regularly clashed over foreign policy matters; Bolton is a gung-ho neocon interventionist who was one of the core architects of the Iraq war and who has called for bombing Iran and nuking Pyongyang. 

Bolton’s departure will come as a relief to most of the foreign policy world, who have long considered the walrus-moustached neocon as one of the greatest dangers to world stability because of his near-fetishistic desire to solve almost every problem with the application of extreme military force.

Push back against gun banning

Small business entrepreneurs have an opportunity when the corporatist mega retailers adopt the authoritarian "PC" hysteria that seeks to ban all firearms and ammunition. Now may be a good time to jump into the snake pit and apply for a Federal Firearms License to become a gun dealer. Debating the validity of the Second Amendment with a snowflake or soccer mom is like dealing with a programmed sucker who took the short bus to their indoctrinated schooling sessions. Their lack of self-respect stems from the absence in the meaning of self-defense. They do not foster any sympathy as a victim; much less make a compelling argument that banning guns of responsible citizens is necessary to safeguard the children.

Clinton Crime Mafia Back in Full Force
In your face and rubbing your nose in it is for all to see. That’s the pattern of the Clinton clan that perfects their criminal culture of corruption and law-breaking. The unmistakable premeditated meeting between William Jefferson Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch is a violation of every ethical legal canon. It should be grounds for expulsion from the practice of the law. Well, in Clinton’s case he is no stranger to disbarment. For Lynch, who was appointed to United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York by President Bill Clinton in 1999, she should know better. Yet, if you are the successor to Eric Holder, there seems to be no need to conduct your affairs ethically as AG.

Gottlieb developed his practices straight from Nazi-doctors responsible for some of the most horrific human experiments on concentration camp victims during World War II. At one point the Nazi scientists were flown to the USA to lecture CIA agents on the effects of the deadly poison gas sarin. Gottlieb emulated these Nazi-tactics in black sites all over […]

The 9/11 attacks not only killed thousands of Americans, they also led to America’s forever wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Iran, and elsewhere, which have brought about the deaths of thousands of other Americans and millions of foreigners. But the 9/11 attacks did more than that. They also fortified the U.S. government as a national-security […]

In America today, the government does whatever it wants, freedom be damned. We can pretend that the Constitution, which was written to hold the government accountable, is still our governing document, but the reality of life in the American police state tells a different story. “We the people” have been terrorized, traumatized, and tricked into […]

As the 18th anniversary of 9/11 approached, the arrest and alleged suicide of Jeffrey Epstein made headlines—and raised questions about the credibility of official narratives. As Eric Rasmusen writes: “Everybody, it seems, in New York society knew by 2000 that Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell were corrupting teenage girls, but the press wouldn’t cover it.” Likewise, everybody in […]


Progressive superstar Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez of New York has characterized the Electoral College as a “scam,” and the majority of 2020 Democratic presidential field have either called for — or been open to — moving to a national popular vote.

“It’s largely a dream because our Constitution is … hard to amend,” Justice Ginsburg said. “I know that from experience.”

Earlier that month, he told New York magazine “50 percent of headlines are bulls---.” Castro has also run a TV ad in which he quotes President Trump saying “s---holes,” though it’s beeped out.

Cory Booker used that word in July’s debate, and CNN wasn’t quick enough to censor it. He has also said that “thoughts and prayers” for victims of gun violence are “bulls---.” When some on the right raised questions about Harris’s heritage, Booker tweeted Harris “doesn’t have s--- to prove.” And his campaign manager at one point tweeted a text message in which Booker called Trump’s comments about gun violence “a bulls--- soup of ineffective words.”

Strange Things Are Happening on Epstein Island: Drone Footage

Considering the fact that Epstein is dead, why is there still maintenance on the island and who is paying these workers? Are the checks coming from the $577 million trust fund created by Epstein two days before his death – with anonymous beneficiaries?

The drone footage taken over the last few weeks prove that heavy construction work has taken place on Epstein Island only days prior to the FBI raids. Considering the fact that these people were paid by Epstein, there is a distinct possibility that they were ordered to destroy evidence and bury whatever needed to be buried.

Strangelove Redux: US Experts Propose Having Artificial Intelligence (AI) Control Nuclear Weapons
In an article in War on the Rocks titled, ominously, “America Needs a ‘Dead Hand,’” US deterrence experts Adam Lowther and Curtis McGiffin propose a nuclear command, control, and communications setup with some eerie similarities to the Soviet system referenced in the title to their piece. The Dead Hand was a semiautomated system developed to launch the Soviet Union’s nuclear arsenal under certain conditions, including, particularly, the loss of national leaders who could do so on their own.
