Peter Navarro Shreds John Bolton…

White House Trade Policy Advisor Peter Navarro outlines what many CTH readers are aware of.  John Bolton begged for the job and enlisted Sean Hannity and Mark Levin to get advanced recommendations.  That’s how he got in. However, as National Security Advisor John Bolton never understood the President Trump doctrine, using economics to achieve national security objectives.  Underline it, highlight it, that’s the primary issue.

In this interview Navarro goes full wolverine on Bolton, and deservedly so.  What Navarro outlines is the truthful reality.  You can tell because it aligns at every level with what we watched every day while John Bolton was in the administration. God bless Navarro for truthfully calling the baby ugly.  WATCH:

.

John Bolton felt unimportant in the world of geopolitics because President Trump relied on the economic team of Secretary Mnuchin, Secretary Ross, USTR Lighthizer and Trade Advisor Peter Navarro to achieve national security objectives.

Bolton was the knuckledragger at the end of the table, useful as leverage, where Trump could point to him and say lets make a deal to keep the warmongers like this guy out of the picture. Bolton’s biggest problem was with that Trump doctrine.

President Trump’s foreign policy doctrine is executed through the prism of using economics to achieve national security objectives.

This approach was so fundamentally foreign to Bolton that he couldn’t wrap his mind around how trade and economics could be used instead of dropping bombs.

Note Bolton’s own quote “I had the most futile role of all“.

He was futile because his DC neocon view to achieve national security through military is so far away from the successful strategic deployment of economics that he cannot fathom it.

Bolton had no way to open his mouth at the table because the economic team was speaking a foreign language.

The use of economics requires an entirely different set of skills. The strategic map is not looked at from the position of geographies; the map is viewed from the perspectives of wealth, currency exchanges, trade dynamics, tariffs, rules of commerce and other complex economic contracts that require a completely different frame of reference.

Planning successful outcomes on an economic front requires taking steps, gaming out the opponents financial goals, and taking actions that seem completely disconnected at the time they are happening – but come together much later on.

An example is U.S. energy development: a strong U.S.-Saudi Arabia relationship to coordinate lower oil prices, liquefied natural gas to Poland and simultaneous sanctions against Venezuela. Collectively this type of strategic economic process hurts the affluence of Russia, Iran and China and inhibits their geopolitical influence.

Hurt their strategic affluence, diminish their strategic influence… That’s geopolitical warfare using economics. This type of economic leverage is foreign to the mind of John Bolton who prefers a military approach.

Notice how the strategic economic team are exactly the same as the day the administration began?  The only member who changed in the first term was adding NEC Director Larry Kudlow to replace Gary Cohen after the China tariffs started.

The the economic team are achieving the desired results by following a plan Donald Trump thought about, formulated and expressed for decades. The group has remained consistent because they follow this economic strategy. Secretary Mnuchin, Secretary Ross, USTR Lightizer, Trade Advisor Navarro and NEC Chairman Kudlow are executing a well-defined plan, policy and strategy.

Bolton could never fathom how to be part of that economic strategy.

Bolton is clueless, won’t last long…

        When a person has an extremely high IQ, above and beyond most they are or have been around, it isn’t also “ego” that they are projecting as they are correct on most issues. They are just smarter than most around them. I think President Trump has a humble heart, but he’s a tough as nails streetfighter that put him in the Oval Office and can come across to some as rather egotistical. Even so, I actually think he has earned that perspective based on his high IQ and far greater experiences and successes because of it. JMO.

          Personally, I think the press & enemy attacks on the President (about his ego) are not warranted. He’s a successful business man. They’re not. He’s resurrecting the economy as we write, despite the Democrats’ efforts to block & stall.

          I’ve never seen him in public, but I was watching his arrival at an Argentine opera with Melania & the angle of the camera shot gave me the impression that when he looks at whoever he is talking to in an intimate setting, he puts his entire focus on them and the effect is powerful. Ego or not, that is a great leader. IMHAO

        • President Trump being an egotistical person is another MSM created narrative. Just giving two examples from many –
          1) During 2016 campaign, candidate Trump did something, and Savage, the egotistical maniac he is, went bonkers on him. But candidate Trump still went for an interview on his radio show. Mind you, this was the time when candidate Trump was already having thousands lined up for his rallies and he didn’t need Savage to broadcast his message.
          2) Another example, remember that “conservative ” guy virtuously declaring castrating candidate Trump because of NBCs hit job with that leaked audio? I remember President Trump very graciously tweeting to buy his new book about a year or two ago.

          An egotistical person will never do these things, no matter the price or consequences. If you think logically, show me one business man/woman who is egoistic. You will be hard pressed to find one who is successful in business with this “feature “.

      He’s like the new AC-130W Stinger gunship firing howitzer round after round of truth at the target as he circles around to his next point. Follows up point #1 with multiple salvos of armor piercing 30mm autocannon rounds at the heart of the target.

      He seems to me to be the most protective fellow to POTUS on President Trump’s entire staff & I sure wish President Trump had more folks like him on his team. I like most of the other folks too, but Navarro is like a Wolverine in the way he gleefully accepts his role on the team.

      I wish he’d be the follow-on after President Trump leaves office in 2024, but by then he’ll likely have seen enough of DC to last two lifetimes.

    Levin and Hannity. Both pushed hard for Pierre Dilecto on 2008 and 2012 to win the GOP nomination. Both knee capped Mike Huckabee in 2008 but now act friendly towards him. Both pushed hard for Bolton. Both cheered for WMD and the Iraq war. I’m sure I missed a few here.

    No one is always right and we all regret some of our political decisions (I made calls for Mittens in 2012 and put a Mittens bumper sticker on my car 😲), but like the earlier article on Heritage taking big Google $$$, our conservative talking heads don’t always have our best intentions at heart.

      Mike, speaking as lawyer and a conservative libertarian, your generalization is off the mark. Perhaps more than anyone, lawyers understand that there are many roads to victory, and many ways to wage war. In the case of lawyers, kinetic warfare would be most akin to going to trial. The overwhelming majority of cases filed in this country get resolved well before trial. Yes, we do not shy away from a good fight, and figuratively run towards the danger, but only when all other options fail. The threat of trial, or war, and the resources to carry out that threat, Teddy Roosevelt’s ‘big stick,’ is a useful tool, but like war itself, kinetic, or in the form of economics / business ( which is also likened to war, ), or any other of many forms,are just tools, that one needs to know how to use best. I oppose unnecessary use and sacrifice of our blood and treasure. Bolton was a war-mongering, Deep State, Neo-Con relic who is jilted because the Donald sent him packing and wouldn’t let him talk him into another unneeded war.

      The concept of “limited warfare” and “surgical strikes” should be an anathema to us. To them that hold this consideration as valid let them be eternally condemned!

      War is the most consequential action a nation can take. Very much like a governor ordering a death row prisoner to his final justice. It is all violent, blunt force trauma with terrible costs even for the Victor.

      There is a reason the Constitution requires a Congressional Act to declare War on a mortal enemy of ours. They who would seek to destroy us have to get thru our Military first.

      Anything less urgent – try economic warfare, try diplomatic efforts and possibly containment, blockades and trade interdictions. See what that gets us and maybe see how the “bad guys” respond.

      Military sloth and complacency are not ok either, but with all other large human organizations, hold the leaders accountable for leadership and stay out of their business in the meantime.

      This is why I voted for President Trump. He won my vote when he explained why our invasion of Iraq in 2003 was one of the worst decisions our country has ever made.

      I thank God for his courage to say that to the Swamp. To the Military-Industrial Complex the 5-star General Eisenhower warned us about.

      At best, the MIC is almost an extortionary insurance policy that costs way too much, one you hope you never have to use.

      I used to be a believer in the (Milton Friedman) position that free trade is good for both parties. And, that every nation had some comparative advantage that they could exploit for economic gain. For instance, we sell food to the Southern hemisphere half the year, and we buy food from the Southern hemisphere half the year: win-win. But the comparative advantage that China brings to the table is the willingness to make its citizens work for a few dollars a day, fenced in work camps (Foxconn), with no benefits and abysmal working conditions. Further, Chinese industry need not worry about pollution of the air with smog or the water with hexavalent chromium salts; there are no EPA rules or Superfund sites in China. And, they manipulate their currency and steal intellectual property. Further, the proceeds of their industry go to the CCP to fund military efforts against us, which likely include development of bioweapons like coronavirus, whether they intentionally released it, or not. So, I have come around to the notion that free trade is not possible with China the way it might be with England, or France, or Chile, or Ghana, etc.

      Further, tariffs on NAFTA and NATO partners who exploit loopholes in trade agreements to facilitate subrosa Chinese imports, or shirk their defense commitments are justified, too.

    Unless Navarro is saying Boltons claims are true but we’re not supposed to be shared?

    Must read article from the American Spectator about Bolton’s dossier. https://spectator.org/john-boltons-sour-grapes/

    Pull quote:

    the moment he cites as the real “turning point” for him in the administration had to do with an attack on Iran that, to Bolton’s abject disappointment, didn’t happen.

    In June 2019, Iran had shot down an unmanned American drone, and Bolton, who has always championed what he proudly calls “disproportionate response,” pushed Trump to approve a series of military strikes in retaliation. You can sense Bolton’s excitement when he describes going home “at about 5:30” for a change of clothes because he expected to be at the White House “all night.” It’s therefore an awful shock when Trump decided to call off the strikes at the very last minute, after learning they would kill as many as 150 people. “Too many body bags,” Trump told him. “Not proportionate.”

    Bolton still seems incensed at this unexpected display of caution and humanity on the part of Trump, deeming it “the most irrational thing I ever witnessed any President do.”

    This right here sums up why Trump is the best Republican POTUS ever elected. How Bolton ever got a foothold in any administration is beyond me.

    Watching Navarro clearly defend and articulate the positions of Trump only reminds us of how few there are in the administration who actually support the MAGA agenda.

    Have to admit P.Trump has so much to learn about politics
    and the snakes in the WH swamp. Why he didn’t fire everyone
    leftover from the Bozo administration….I’ll never know.

    The votes are counted, handled, by cheaters. As we now know…hundreds
    of thousands of the votes were illegal, in so many ways…. dead voters,
    out of state voters, multi votes, illegal alien voters …..and on and on.

    Has anyone been a “banned forever” voter …. for cheating??
    I’ve never heard of any. A slap on the hand doesn’t work. Nope.

    In fact, they allow prisoners to vote. Those anti-Social dregs…
    who’ve long ago lost their ability to respect society…or laws.
    But, because they would certainly vote DemonCrap….since “their ideal world”
    is all about “breaking laws.”

    I understand G. Sorass “OWNS VOTING MACHINES”.
    Now what could (and has) gone wrong there??

    Nobody investigated before the last election…. probably nobody will
    investigate “before” the next one.
    “THIS IS A BIG Fn DEAL!”

    Who is watching the watchers? Does anyone care?

    If POTUS wins re-election, first order of business needs to be firing of 80% of political appointees, and then, since he can’t fire many of the bureaucratic positions, reduce funding of personal in most departments by 50% and direct his head of those departments to root out and let go the anti-Trump employees.

    Didn’t Patreus plead guilty to mishandling classified info — sharing it with his biobrapher/lover Broadwell? How is this different…Bolton shared classified info with his publisher, proof readers and who knows else. Prosecute him.

    Wanna get really ticked off? Catherine Austin Fitts and Economics Prof. Mark Skidmore (PhD st Michigan State) just released an update on the $21 TRILLION missing from the DoD budget and it’s several trillion underestimated. In fact, it’s bigger than the national debt by far as the Army has simply been shoving in figures wherever to satisfy surface scrutiny. Where’s the GAO? Where in the blink is CONGRESS? Who’s in charge here? Whose sponsoring the (according to Fitts’ math) $65,000 paid by every U.S. man, woman and child to fund this slush fund?

    No wonder the military wants Trump out of office before he scrutinizes their secret money — the huge stash they have been using for years to start and wage unnecessary warfare so they don’t lose their relevance…as if they’ve every been anything but a tool for the Banksters’ Usary Cabal spported by all theor alphabet agencies that are suppposed to be protecting us. Sure. Ain’t no hanging tree high enough.

    “Bolton was the knuckledragger at the end of the table, useful as leverage, where Trump could point to him and say lets make a deal to keep the warmongers like this guy out of the picture.”

    POTUS knows how to find ways of using people even when they are antagonistic to his own objectives. Bolton was a useful prop to be pulled out and used when necessary. A scarecrow placed at the edge of a field.

    Reminds me of something Michael Pillsbury said early on about a Chinese ambassador(?) in DC wondering or being uncertain about who President Trump takes advice from. POTUS keeps many different voices in his circle and strategically brings one or the other to the forefront as needed for strategic messaging to our foreign adversaries.

    So Trump uses economics to achieve national security- and the Dems via Dr F and Dr B close the economy to put America at risk- maybe it fills their pocketbooks too. I Can believable.

    “Bolton could never fathom how to be part of that economic strategy.”

    Perhaps now we can use his picture next to the cliche’ – “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks”.

    I wish Navarro would come out of his shell and just say what he means. LOL!

    Bolton has been making what our dear James Comey calls “weasel moves.”
