John Bolton: America's
Next Secretary of State?

Breitbart's Big Peace, by Rick Amato

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/11/2012 11:00:21 AM

"Radical Islam is a severe threat against America that is growing and the White House doesn’t seem to recognize or understand it because it doesn’t fit with their narrative of the Arab Spring. It is for either ideological reasons or for political reasons but either way the White House doesn’t appear to understand the dangers”, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton told me recently. Bolton is also a foreign policy adviser to the Romney campaign. “I’m real concerned because Muslims worldwide understand the dangers of radicalism more than the White House does”, Bolton said.

Comments:
He would make an excellent Secretary of State! What an extreme difference that would be from this weak, corrupt regime.

I'd be happy to see this as long as he scrubs the place clean.

There are likely still some senior staffers left over from the Clinton Administration that need to go, to say nothing of this recent regime.

From Amato's keyboard to God's ears! Bolton would be a stellar Secretary of State. And the sound of liberal heads exploding would be the sweetest icing on the cake.

Can you imagine the confirmation hearings?

Demo's would be in terrible panty twist, Bolton knows more about international relations than the entire Obama Administration combined.

Do not forget that Bolton's nomination to the UN ambassador position was blocked by democrats in the senate,and they pulled out all the stops in the confirmation hearing.
They even offered a woman as witness who, when working with bolton in the private sector, said he raised his voice to her.
So President Bush made an interim appointment for Bolton, which upon expiration, caused him to leave the UN position.

He is so knowledgeable about world affairs and knows all the players from experience.

When I see Bolton on tv, everything else is set aside and I listen closely. If Bolton says it, it means something.

On top of that, I like the Samuel Clemens look.

I hope so. To use an old cliche, he has more knowledge in his little finger than the others (I won't even mention Hillary or Kerry, who is hoping to be SoS in the next Obama regime). And he has great reasoning ability and common sense. He is no fool.

I've been wishing and praying for Bolton to be named SOS for years. Even instead of Condi Rice. We have to get the women out of that position. The muslim world does not respect women and to have such highly placed female representatives of the US gov't is merely a PC move.

Re the WH understanding of radicalism - I truly believe that rather than misunderstanding islamic radicalism, they fully perceive the threat - and support it...

If you think the invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan were good ideas, and were beneficial to the interests of the United States (and worth the enormous costs) I will concede that one of us should be wearing a tin foil hat, so to speak. And yes, "neocon" is a very pejorative term. Remember that the neocons sidled up to Clinton before they found the ultimate suckers (or knaves) in the Bush family.

#10/#24:

I’d wear the title of ‘NeoCon’ as a badge of honor!

Please ‘insult’ me so I can sleep with a smile on my face tonight knowing I’ve been endowed.

You seem to forget that Afghanistan was a safe haven for Al-Qaida in 2011.

You seem to forget that Iraq was paying $10K to families of Arab suicide bombers that were killing Jews in 2011.

You seem to forget that Iraq was a prolific user of chemical and biological weapons and was more than capable of giving them away to the badest of guys in 2011.

Maybe we need a chem/bio attack on Disneyland on Christmas Day to get you to see the light, assuming that is, your head can be extracted from the place where it can’t see light even on the brightest of days!

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Without mentioning reports that the man accused of shooting up a Jewish Community Center over the weekend was apparently a fan of the left´s Max Blumenthal, CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen exploited the murders to claim the American Right is more deadly than jihadists. In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the

O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
