Joltin’ Bolton and Reckless Romney

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 1/28/2020 4:19:31 AM

I guess I should say something. For five years my office at AEI was right next to John Bolton. Lately I’ve been having fun with this photo suggesting I can do “hearsay” with the best of Adam Schiff’s witnesses (that is, “making stuff up”). I can’t say I got to know Bolton very well, but as early risers we were often the first people in the office before well before 7 am on many days, so I’d sometimes stop to chat over coffee and we’d joke about things. And he was helpful to me several times when I needed some inside information on how the UN’s climate change circus

Comments:

Bolton expected to be SofS and holds a Trump grudge because it never happened. No one can explain Romney.

I am having a difficult time with Mitt Romney. I am certain he is a respectable person. My gut reaction is that he is jealous. He wanted to win but couldn't just like John McCain. I think there is something deeper but I probably would need to know more details. It is sad that he is a Never Trumper. Democrats, I want you to know that I believe the Biden family should be investigated regardless if Joe Biden is running for President of the USA or not. I firmly believe that Donald Trump's attitude is the correct one. It is horrible how Ukraine is being treated as a country and the video that was floating around with Biden boasting in 2012/13 shows disrespect for Ukraine. I also want you to know that this "testimony" from John Bolton is not believable to me. Anyone who is trying to sell a book is suspect. I am very skeptical, also, because he was let go. If there is even a faint smell of revenge, I will question John Bolton's motive. Every day I am reminded of the infantile behavior from the Democrats and Never Trumpers. You do not disappoint!

Re: "I am having a difficult time with Mitt Romney. I am certain he is a respectable person. My gut reaction is that he is jealous." My opinion is also that he is very jealous and cannot and does not accept the he and only he failed against that putz Obama. He had him on the ropes and let him connive his way out of his own, (Obama's) predicament.

I'm not worried about Bolton. To me he's not a sympathetic figure, he's been brash and unlikable. Now Romney is a smug, I'm a better person than you are, type of guy. I think he sees an opportunity to smack Trump around and he's going to take it.

#2 I am not at all certain that Romney "is a respectable person". There are many comparisons to John McCain that would be valid. McCain also was not a respectable person. When Hillary did a face plant and it became obvious that she would not be able to provide benefits in exchange for contributions to her Clinton Foundation "charity", her donors shifted over to John McCain's "charity". I'm not sure where they moved when he died, but I know Romney has one too. Congress needs to pass a law against these bribe collection devices, but that is about as likely as passing a law for term limits.

My take is that Bolton is dying to testify. It will be worth a thousand stops at suburban book stores to peddle his story. I don’t have an opinion about his integrity one way or the other. I don’t know him. But I am suspect of anyone who has lived and worked in the DC Swamp as long as he has. Washington corrupts people.

It was over when Romney became Pierre Delecto. I get it that most who are in politics have the Type A personality schtick, but, dog gone it, Pierre, do you realize that the future of our constitutional republic is in the balance and if you keep it up with your snit over the President, we become Amerika overnight?

If I recall correctly, Mitt Romney received a full-throated election endorsement from...President Donald J. Trump. Said all sorts of nice things about the former GOP presidential nominee that many supported (sometimes robustly) in these very halls of discussion. Any Republican would have done in that Senate seat. John Bolton was a Fox Contributor who gathered a large popular gathering around him for his tough talk and mustache fashion on the usual shows. He was appointed an ambassador by Dubya, once the "GPOAT". For awhile Bolton was PDT's National Security Advisor, but then the practicalities of being President and setting real foreign policy, one with a purpose besides maintaining a global war footing and perpetual conflict, met the ideological advice of Amb. Bolton, and practical won. Seems ol' John was also once an advisor to that Romney guy. Can't win them all.

Not sure about SecState OP, but like all the egg head academics who think they know more than us regular folks, he was very thin skinned about Trump not always taking his advice. That is why he and Newt Gingrich would have been unbearable in a Trump WH. Neither man knows how to park their own ego, and they get offended if somebody like Trump disagrees with them. They still see him as an ignorant school boy when it comes to foreign policy. They forget that he has been dealing with foreign governments and political types most of his career. It is no surprise that he is a bit of a cuck RINO. Romney has always been a corrupted sneak and always will be. He has no core principles to guide him, and I would not trust him on the subject of Godly living as far as I could throw him. Romney is proving he is nothing but an appeaser, and I think he would have gone on bigger apology tours than Obama did.

I saw Romney and his wife had entering the Bezos party this weekend. Yes indeed, he and Anne are loving the Washington social scene. I wonder how much time they spend in Utah. Let's face it, Mitt is a Massachusetts carpetbagger, aka Rino. He's definitely no replacement for Senator Orin Hatch, the people in Utah got short changed...and the Republican party is getting stabbed in the back by this fake Republican. My guess is, he has financial connections in the Middle East like all the rest of them.

It’s clear that in a lot of respects that the nation dodged a major bullet when Romney, with Bolton at the time being his top foreign policy advisor, lost the general election against Obama. Most people who have been paying attention will remember that the wimpy Romney when he had Obama on the ropes during a presidential debate clammed up and allowed Obama to rigged free and then win the election. Can you imagine Romney coming up against the likes of Putin or other Street tough adversarial world leaders with Bolton running his foreign policy, you have to figure knowing Bolton’s love for war, of course with him leading from a bunker in DC, that untold numbers of US armed service members would have given their lives in useless wars where there would be no satisfactory end for the USA. Bolton found out that Trump was not about to take such war mongering advise, fired Bolton, and that’s why we find ourselves today with Bolton writing his kiss and tell book. The leftist and liberal Democrats have always thought that Bolton was a warmongering neocon and had nothing in common with him, but are now playing Bolton up fraudulently as a wise national hero in their quest to knock Trump out of running for re-election in November. Anyone with any common sense has to figure today, that Bolton just by writing such a kiss and tell book about his confidential deliberations and interactions with Trump that throughout history would have been covered under the principle of Executive Privilege, as Trump’s closest national security adviser, is a person who is not to be trusted either to give sound advise or when testifying to supposed facts.

The real question to ask is if Bolton is allowed to testify? Almost certainly, Bolton signed a NDA when working for the White House that restricted him from disclosing details of what he saw/heard/did. And depending on the terms of that NDA, Bolton could be subject to penalties if he testifies. A Congressional subpoena to testify would override the NDA. But Trump could simply claim Executive Privilege to oppose that subpoena, forcing it to the courts to resolve. This could drag out for months....exactly what the scummy Democrats want

Open plea to Mitt Romney: 1. The democrats will do ANYTHING to get rid of Trump and grab even more power than they have; ergo, "conveniently" leaking the idea that John Bolton has shaking revelations in his not yet published manuscript. 2. Because the end justifies the means, they will throw everything but the kitchen sink at their republican "enemies," and this is just another example (did you even watch the Kavanaugh hearings?). 3. Yes, Mitt, I mean "enemies." The dems view you and every other republican as the enemy, to be destroyed by whatever means. 4. If you don't get this, it's only a matter of time before you are relegated to the dustbin of has-been politicians who are forever forgotten for their complete lack of impact on the US political scene. 5. Once you vote to let the dems call witnesses, you will be condemned to have to listen to a never ending parade of carefully selected hacks who will claim whatever the dems want them to claim in order to damage Trump and the Republican party. You are ostensibly a smart man, Mr. Romney, but I am shaking my head at the idea that, in light of the dirty tricks and outright lies the dems have used in this impeachment fiasco, you would consider for one second allowing the senate to call additional witnesses.

I really am losing hope for our country, considering the caliber of the people we have governing on the Democrat side and many on the Republican side as well. All this hoopla about a "supposedly trusted adviser", Bolton, writing a book (while still employed in the White House - which tells you a lot about his integrity and trustworthiness), and no clamor at all about Peter Schweizer's book about all the corruption surrounding the Biden family. Our President is questioning the trustworthiness of a country that is steeped in corruption prior to giving them millions and millions of taxpayer's money, and few if any think that is the right thing to do. It is Ukraine that is corrupt; it is the Bidens who are corrupt - it is not the President who is corrupt. And a good portion of our government is corrupt as well. I did not read the article. What could they tell me that is anything new? Just look today what President Trump is accomplishing in the Middle East. No wonder all these wastrels who sit around for years doing nothing want him out of there. Too much of a contrast between them.

Questions about House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff’s dealings with the anonymous Ukraine whistleblower are not “disgraceful,” as Schiff tried to claim on Thursday, nor are they baseless. These questions are relevant and necessary insofar as they inform the impeachment of President Trump, why this impeachment was launched, and how it came about. During Thursday’s question period in the impeachment trial, Schiff was asked why the House Intelligence Committee hired two Obama-era National Security Council aides, Abigail Grace and Sean Misko, who had worked with the alleged whistleblower, and what role Grace and Misko had played in the House’s impeachment investigation. Instead of addressing this potential conflict of interest,

Instead, there was only Representative Adam Schiff, the party’s tireless point man in the impeachment trial, who stood in the well of the Senate making an 11th-hour argument that Trump’s political-dirt-for-military-aid squeeze on Ukraine was too egregious to ignore. “If you accept the argument that the president of the United States can tell you to pound sand when you try to investigate his wrongdoing, there will be no force

Next November, when most voters are trying to forget the partisan antics of President Trump’s impeachment, they will decide his fate based on the same criteria they always use to determine if a president deserves reelection. Committed Republicans will vote for Trump, of course, and committed Democrats will vote against him. But party loyalists are about evenly split among only 54 percent of the electorate. Fully 45 percent of Americans now identify as Independents, and their votes will hinge on more pragmatic concerns. This is good news for the president. A new Gallup survey shows very significant increases in public satisfaction on eight key issues since Trump took office:

It takes serious account of the efforts Israel has made, beginning in the early 1990s, to do what Bill Clinton once called “taking risks for peace.” It recognizes the rueful lessons those efforts have taught us and builds on them.

The next longest tunnel in the U.S., discovered in San Diego in 2014, was 2,966 feet long. "While subterranean tunnels are not a new occurrence along the California-Mexico border, the sophistication and length of this particular tunnel demonstrates the time-consuming efforts transnational criminal organizations will undertake to facilitate cross-border smuggling,” Cardell Morant, acting special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) San Diego, said in a press release.

His sincerity!” Barbra Streisand said, pouring praise on the partisan lawmaker. “He speaks the truth and would make a great president.” (Tweet) Babs may want to pomp the breaks because as it stands, only 27 percent of America has a positive opinion of Rep. Schiff according to YouGov data.

One year after filing for bankruptcy, PG&E has worked out deals to borrow money and guarantee more than $25 billion in payouts to wildfire victims, insurers and local municipalities. It’s even come to terms with bondholders. As a result, its shares have skyrocketed 37 percent so far in January. Mizuho upgraded the stock this week to a “buy.” That optimism may be premature.
