John Bolton - Neocon/Zionist Warmonger/Psychopath National Security Advisor to President Trump

bolton.jpg

I'm just going to post the title and say something like, um, wait, let me drink a beer.

I'm back.

I was going to say that um, Bolton is, um, what this means is um, wait, let me drink another beer.

I'm back.

So anyhoo, you gotta be shittin' me. Really? John Bolton, right after appointing Pompeo to SOS and that Torture Lady to head the Gestapo?

My God. I'm gonna drink another beer.

I'm back.

Those fuckers. I am so fucking sick of Trump apologists who keep insisting that the fucking deep state is keeping him from saving the fucking country. Make America Great Again. What bullshit. These latest moves culminating in John Fucking Bolton as National Security Advisor, a rabid psychopath who wants war with everyone except Israel, should be the end of the fucking conversation.

But Trump supporters are like Obama supporters, they never give up even when they're slapped in the fucking face.

A couple days ago, Paul Craig Roberts had this to say at the end of his daily rant:

"If Trump names John Bolton National Security Adviser, plan to die."

To all those Trump supporters and apologists out there I can only say,
Fuck You.

How Many Millions of People Have Been Killed in America’s Post-9/11 Wars? – Part One: Iraq
March 22, 2018
Save
The numbers of casualties of U.S. wars since Sept. 11, 2001 have largely gone uncounted, but coming to terms with the true scale of the crimes committed remains an urgent moral, political and legal imperative, argues Nicolas J.S. Davies.

By Nicolas J.S. Davies

How many people have been killed in America’s post-9/11 wars? I have been researching and writing about that question since soon after the U.S. launched these wars, which it has tried to justify as a response to terrorist crimes that killed 2,996 people in the U.S. on September 11th 2001.

But no crime, however horrific, can justify wars on countries and people who were not responsible for the crime committed, as former Nuremberg prosecutor Ben Ferencz patiently explained to NPR at the time.

“The Iraq Death Toll 15 Years After the U.S. Invasion” which I co-wrote with Medea Benjamin, estimates the death toll in Iraq as accurately and as honestly as we can in March 2018. Our estimate is that about 2.4 million people have probably been killed in Iraq as a result of the historic act of aggression committed by the U.S. and U.K. in 2003. In this report, I will explain in greater detail how we arrived at that estimate and provide some historical context. In Part 2 of this report, I will make a similar up-to-date estimate of how many people have been killed in America’s other post-9/11 wars.

Our estimate is that about 2.4 million people have probably been killed in Iraq as a result of the historic act of aggression committed by the U.S. and U.K. in 2003.

From the posting above.

An estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were killed during the 100-day period from 7 April to mid-July 1994,[1] constituting as many as 70% of the Tutsi population. Additionally, 30% of the Pygmy Batwa were killed.[3][4] The genocide and widespread slaughter of Rwandans ended when the Tutsi-backed and heavily armed Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) led by Paul Kagame took control of the country. An estimated 2,000,000 Rwandans, mostly Hutus, were displaced and became refugees.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rwandan_genocide

The regime was led by Pol Pot, who controlled the government from 1975 to 1979, killing approximately 1.5 to 3 million Cambodians

He not only signals a complete neocon shift in the illegal regime controlling the White House, he's a Zionist and a rabid warhawk against Iran and North Korea, advocating military solutions. Combine that with Pompeo who is the same way and it does appear Trump is getting what he campaigned for, as some Trump apologists and supporters are saying, although in a different way. He stated all along he was against the Iran nuclear agreement and now the moment of truth has come appointing these two psychos. There are leaks out of the WH that Trump will not recertify the agreement next time it comes up which I believe is May 12th. These moves had to have been made with that in mind.

Our country is truly controlled by psychopaths that have no concern for human life, only their whacked out agendas.

New training facility boosts Jordan’s status as ‘counter-terrorism hub'

AMMAN — The government and the US State Department on Thursday inaugurated a training facility south of Amman that aims to double the Kingdom's capacity in counter-terrorism training.

Constructed and fully funded by the Department of State's Anti-terrorism Assistance programme (ATA), the centre, dubbed the Jordan Gendarmerie Training Academy, will provide essential training in crisis response, explosive incident counter-measures, post-blast investigations and tactical medicine, according to a statement from the US embassy.

"For 30 years, the Government of Jordan has proven itself a steadfast partner of the ATA programme and has contributed significantly to US efforts to advance the counter-terrorism capabilities of law enforcement agencies in the region," the statement read, adding that the ATA has conducted training for Jordanian police and their counterparts from 21 other countries in the Kingdom, described as a "regional hub" for counter-terrorism efforts.

The US PTB have military bases all over the world from which to launch attacks on virtually everybody all at once, if/when desired, and I'm surprised that their currently useful allies can't see this. Unless they do and are quietly arming against the US PTB rather than, or in addition to, those the US PTB wishes attacked.

@Big Al that Wall St. would be the final player to put a stop to this to avoid the economy tanking. But things move fast. We used to run at snail mail speed and transactions happened m-f 9 to 3. Then we ran at fax speed, then email any day of the week speed, then text/IM 24hrs/7days a week. Trades can happen in milliseconds if you're in the drivers seat. The big players have probably run computer simulations of the various scenarios, and may have had a heads up before Trumps announcement. If there is a market crash the winners will win big, the losers will have a soft landing via taxpayer bailout. Every recent economic crisis has turned into an opportunity for Wall st. to enable massive transfers of wealth. From us, to them.

So, you're 100% right, we're screwed.

You are correct, the head of the National Security Agency (NSA) does have to receive Senate confirmation. The NSA is under the Dept. of Defense, and the current director is Admiral Michael Rogers.

However, that is not the position to which Bolton was just appointed. He is the new National Security Advisor. His official title is "Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs", and he reports directly to POTUS. No Senate confirmation required.

(One of Bolton's predecessors was Condoleezza Rice, who served as Dubya's National Security Advisor during his first term. 9/11 happened on her watch.)

@Centaurea Trump has made a point of appointing the worst possible people to high level posts. This is not draining the swamp.

This man belongs in the mental ward of the highest security prison on earth.

I could understand Pompeo because of all the cabinet members, he had forged a strong personal relationship with Trump, but the last two appts. are seriously frightening. I did not want to see Trump impeached because he would be better than Pence against the war machine. Sadly this shows the war machine is in complete and total charge. It is depressing and sickening.

@JtC @JtC Bolton isn't being nominated to head the NSA. He's being hired as the National Security Advisor. As a Presidential advisor, and not the head of a government agency, he doesn't need to be confirmed by the Senate.

Now Pompeo and Torture Lady have to be confirmed by the Senate, but since Israel owns that body it's a certainty.

Nothing like a war to deflect attention from presidential scandals. It does seem like those in power who generate profits for the MIC ("W", Hillary etc.) are immune to justice.
Trump is surrounding himself with warmongers for a reason. I would like to think this is a bluff to get North Korea to give up its nukes (good cop/bad cop schtick), but that would involve Trump having to be a lot smarter than everyone thinks (which is not likely). And even if it is a bluff, Trump would still act as insane as ever, which could in itself cause a war.
The simplest explanation is most likely the truth. Trump is gearing up for war, to please the MIC, and if the pattern holds immunize himself from justice.

Trump replaces McMaster with Bolton as national security adviser

Bolton’s hiring was met with opposition among Democrats on Capitol Hill, who expressed fear that he could help lead the country into an overseas war. As President George W. Bush’s UN ambassador, Bolton was a vocal proponent of the Iraq War.

“With the appointments of Mike Pompeo and John Bolton, @realDonaldTrump is successfully lining up his war cabinet,” tweeted Democrat Senator Ed Markey. “Bolton played a key role in politicizing the intel that misled us into the Iraq War. We cannot let this extreme war hawk blunder us into another terrible conflict.”

“No man is more out of touch with the situation in the Middle East or more dangerous to our national security than Bolton,” GOP Senator Rand Paul had written in an op-ed days after Trump’s election when news came that Trump is interested in appointing Bolton to a top post.

Do I hear the sound of guillotines being constructed?

@gulfgal98 one thing I like about this place is The Aspie Corner gets to talk and not be judged for having symptoms or whatever. Sometimes I like to imagine every comment with a UID, user id pointing to some disorder in the DSM. LOL that would be funny! Or not. Mine would go straight to Major Depressive Disorder, or Clinical Depression, or sometimes Dysthymia. Whee. Those really make my f-bombs drop, I'm chronic. Fuck it.

Anyway, all that blathering was to say if The Aspie Corner has Asperger's Syndrome then those comments are "just Aspie being Aspie" and not to stop any conversations from occurring on a blog. To me they are just harsh words, abruptly spoken. Thanks.

@eyo No thanks. Those morons are just eShockTroops™ for the capitalists in the same vein as Correct the Record and CrowdStrike. Anything that comes from them is suspect at best.

Modern education is little more than toeing the line for the capitalist pigs.

Guerrilla Liberalism won't liberate the US or the world from the iron fist of capital.

@The Aspie Corner I was asking why you would throw away all Q/4chan comments and I guess you answered; because you think they are all trolls trying to disrupt communication, or make money, or whatever a "ShockTroop" thingy does. It's not a real war in my view, it's social media propaganda that is all. You can always turn it off and not bite someone elses head off when they are sharing something here. Thanks.

@The Aspie Corner
I understand the aspie thing and all you've been through and I've been very patient with you, but I'm going to have to ask you to back off the tone of your comments. I want you to have a space where you can voice your frustrations but it's beginning to affect other members of this board. Please consider and respect other folks opinions before you post.

And it is true in the sense that we are all fragile in particular ways, shaped by our experiences.

But that same thing makes us strong, too. And stronger together, able to speak with less fear the truth of what we see.

People reading here are drawn by the uncompromised truth being spoken publicly.

@gulfgal98

in one country of the however many attacked/invaded/'destabilized/'sanctioned' etc. by the Psychopaths That Be, followed by Bolton, I wouldn't have thought I could have enjoyed anything ever again, but that video heartened me, even if the poor bugger believes that Trump could be a great President.

Thanks for posting it!

Psychopathy is not a political position, whether labeled 'conservatism', 'centrism' or 'left'.

A tin labeled 'coffee' may be a can of worms or pathology identified by a lack of empathy/willingness to harm others to achieve personal desires.

Thank you for making me laugh. Thank you for the straight talk. Thank you for moving us into the cold chill waters of truth.

This one has to be one of your best posts. I think we should all go have a beer or six.
