    What did Obama do when his politically pliant pet and hack, Susan Rice, couldn’t get the Secretary of State position because she couldn’t get confirmed? He made her NSA — no confirmation required. Imagine the nefarious activities she was able to undertake with control of the NSA database.

    My choice would be John Ratcliffe. Imagine the GOOD he could do aiding Barr and Durham, and supporting the public release of documents revealing all the nefarious shenanigans the last Administration and its embeds in this one engaged in to undermine a major party candidate, a President-elect, and a President of the United States. His appointment would cause immeasurable anxiety among the conspirators. Go for it.

  3. Bolton represents “old school thinking” about the use of American military power, and unfortunately also was a poster child for military industrialism. This does not align with the President’s far more sophisticated deal-making sensibilities.

    Bolton’s characteristic way of thinking was responsible for eighteen years of lucrative stalemate in Afghanistan. With apologies to the Beach Boys (“Barbara Ann”), it goes like this:

    “Bomb bomb bomb … bomb bomb I-ran … BOMB BOMB BOMB … BOMB BOMB I-RAN! … BOMB I-RA-A-A-AAN …”

    … and that was always the end of it. That’s as far as their thinking had to go.

    So now the story from fox is:
    Last night Bolton and President got into argument and Bolton offered resignation. Bolton comes in this morning and sits through a two hour conference and then decides to resign.

    More like President asked Bolton to resign last night and then found out this morning that Bolton is attending a conference and then fired him.

    I may be missing it entirely, but I thought Trumps effort at the Camp David Meeting was to get the Taliban and the Afghan government into some semblance of a cease-fire/stop blowing crap up so that the United States could get OUT of that useless desert. The deal wasn’t necessarily gonna be with us, but with the “others” the Taliban doesn’t want to live with.

    Personally, If I were President, I would just send word to all the contractors to get their personnel out of Afghanistan within 24 hours, then 24 hours after that issue orders to remove every service member in Afghanistan in the next 24 hours. If you can’t load it on a plane, burn it or blow it up.

    The only way to “win” in Afghanistan is to kill everyone who opposes you. They don’t understand anything else. We have too much of a moral conscience to do that, as a country, so just leave and let them kill themselves.

      Bryan,
      Complete total extraction of troops is possible.
      But, Afghan, as a nation is a partial construct and inherently unstable.
      It’s a magnet for external predators, a territory dominated by uncooperative sectarian interests.

      Vulnerable to everything from archaic Islamist extremists, nuclear Paki militarists to Turkey , Iran, Iraqi & China expansionists.

      As a potential powder keg, we have to keep an oar in the water. I’d prefer to do that through actuall Afghanis, rather than court and bribe duplicitous third parties like Pakistan and Iran.,,

      Total evacuation, including our semi covert operatives would create a power vacuum in a convergence zone of ruthless predatory power seekers.

      Is it realistic to expect outsiders to respect Afghan’s political sovereignty? .

      Absolutely and in the future we don’t go to war unless the people are on board with us going in and wiping out the enemy and not complain if there are innocent people hurt. America goes above and beyond to avoid this but no more at the expense of our own people.

    I like Bolton and have always thought he is a smart man and a loyal American. But he is a Neo-Con and I never thought he would fit in well with Trump’s desire to reduce our military commitments throughout the world. Apparently this weekend the rubber met the road. I really like the dwpender’s suggestion of John Ratcliff for a replacement at NSA. I hope that Bolton takes this like a man and goes away quietly without taking a gig at CNN. But whatever Bolton does, Trump moves on.

        It is when you are surrounded by a nest of vipers or you get it from millennial liberals like Ivanka or Jared. To be fair, I cannot assume they are behind any of the poor personnel decisions (Kelly, Mattis, Cohen, McMaster, Powell), but the expansion of earned income child credit was not good.

        Getting advice from the RIGHT people is always good – getting advice from the WRONG people just to identify their strategy.

      Bolton could have been hired to indirectly help with North Korea negotiations. Trump could honestly tell NK he is getting significant pressure to simply blow up their nuclear sites rather than negotiate. NK would know from Bolton’s reputation that Trump is serious about getting the advice to attack.

      I would say that something more like false flags (set up by Bolt head) were revealed and this was proven to Trump. No doubt Bolton has ben the one stirring up the trouble with Iran the whole time (the ‘pretend fuzzy pictures’ ) we were subjected to of mines and things in the side of the tanker for example. Very Bolton. No fan of Iran, but they are the perfect ‘baddy’ to amplify and ramp up to get a war started for Bolton to justify himself

  14. I have no problem with a few hawks in the administration. And it does no good to have a strong military if the enemy feels you will never use it. Best to use generals or enlisted men if you have to include hawks as advisers. Junior officers and civilians are just trouble.

    President Trump has made many personnel choices that has made me wonder. But that’s how successful people do it. He tries to catch ‘lightning in a bottle’ with unconventional choices but gets rid of them quickly if they don’t work out. Also, my guess is many choices are a head fake; he chooses someone knowing he’ll quickly get rid of them and then choose the person he really wanted.

    It’s like the young man who goes home to mom and tells her he wants to marry another man. After she flips out, he says, “Well, there is this nice girl I’d like to marry but she’s a stripper.” The mom, relieved says, “I’m sure I’ll love her!” My science teacher told me that story back in 1972. Learned a lot from him 🙂

    I believe Andrew McCarthy is correct when he says Americans ignore our antagonists’ ideology at our peril. The Taliban will never negotiate in good faith. They are Islamic jihadists to the core. Accordingly, it was madness to invite a bunch of them to Camp David to “negotiate.” I’m glad they bombed Kabul, except for the deaths of the American and the Romanian soldiers, as I hope it brought Trump a little closer to understanding the ideological scourge of Islam. Because right now it is evident by this episode that he doesn’t get it. Islamists won’t make honest “deals.”

  32. Both Bolton and President Trump are patriots and love their country.

    Unlike some here, I don’t think you will see Bolton out trashing this administration…. forcefully voicing his differences? . . . . perhaps, but trashing, no.

    Bolton understands that Islamic supremacist savages comprise an ideological death cult posing as a religion, will NEVER negotiate in good faith with the civilized Judeo-Christian West and understand only one thing…..the threat or use of overwhelming force. That was what Iraq was all about. Before 0bama surrendered and withdrew against military advice the surge had worked, we were holding ground on their turf and killing jihadi scum at will who were flocking there from all across the region on orders from Bin Laden . . . . . . exactly as we planned. It was a long term strategic effort that was working as until 0bama did a 180, apologized & bugged out. We can argue with hindsight whether going into Iraq in the first place was a mistake, but the abject debacle caused by the 0bama / Biden precipitous withdrawal was predicted by military experts BEFOREHAND . . . . . . but I digress.

    President Trump has shown that he isn’t adverse to using military force, yet doesn’t want to get (or stay) bogged down in any protracted ground wars – these are both good things.

    I do think, however, that – like Rand Paul and his old man – the President may be a bit naïve in thinking he can reason with the likes of fanatic third world Mohammedan terrorists, just as he thought he could reason with the democrat left who are allied with Islamic supremacists in a long ideological war against capitalism, individual liberty and the Judeo-Christian values that made Western Civilization in general and America in particular great.

    Having said that, I don’t think Bolton should have been kept around if he is that at odds with the Commander-in-Chief and I hope President Trump really doesn’t think he can cut a deal with islamists….they aren’t interested in capital, they want blood.

    Flame me if you want, but don’t for one second think I’m a leftist troll.
