As far as exit interviews are concerned, this one was unofficial and especially ugly. In his forthcoming book, “The Room Where It Happened,” John Bolton condemns President Trump as a bumbling executive and mocks Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin as a political opportunist and dismisses Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as generally averse to conflict. But he doesn’t stop there, as one rising GOP star is finding out. The highly unflattering 494-page tome, cataloguing the former national security adviser’s time in the Trump White House, seems destined for bestseller lists — that is, if it can get published.

Comments:

Bolton has deteriorated into a nasty, bitter, jealous man, angry that he never achieved the power he coveted.

He really was a deep state infiltrator. Wow. He fooled a whole lot of people. I took umbrage with Tucker Carlson when he threw shade on Bolton and more-or-less attacked him in a face-to-face interview (a couple years ago before Bolton had joined Trump). I was unhappy with Tucker after that, but now I think I see that Tucker had better insights than I do (go figure!). Side note: I had a typo for Bolton's name and spelled "Bozolton." Maybe I should stick with that.

I am pleased that Pompeo is averse to conflict. I prefer economic war...squeezing them is the first step to resolution. Bolton sent other people's kids to war.

Mr. Got Milk Bolton was never on my serious list from years ago. First he looks stupid but the constant war mongering was a bit disturbing. He wanted to go to war for the shooting down of a drone, not a soldier, a drone. Mr. Blood and Guts, our children's blood and guts. I hope the book dies I'm sure all the liberal Trump haters will love it and to think years ago the left hated Mr. Got Milk.

Like Omarosa's tell-all, Bolton's book will remain an issue so long as Trump continues to talk or tweet about it. It's already been discredited. Time for the president to move on, maybe focusing on things that count, like the economy and putting people back to work.

John Bolton’s White House career was over once President Trump evaluated his game, and determined that Bolton was a dangerous neocon warmonger, who gave the incredibly stupid advice to bomb Iran, North Korea, and even the strategic nuclear powers, China and Russia. Trump then knew that Bolton was no use to him as a credible advisor, in that it was not his mantra to start new endless foreign wars in the Middle East and elsewhere that would not be in the US national interests and causing huge numbers of US and foreign casualties. Instead of following neocon warmongering advice it should be obvious that Trump has always used all sorts of economic measures to try to get the attention of adverse foreign leaders and governments. In those respects it is clear that Bolton would advise the President to militarily bomb Chinese assets causing a war and the ensuing casualties, rather than encourage China to purchase and import US farm products which would help US farmers. Bottom line, Bolton is just the latest in a long line of DC “Swamp” insiders, politicians, bureaucrats, and appointees, who have advocated decades long foreign policy related failed “interagency” initiatives who have been attacking Trump since he was elected. The problem is all those DC insiders were not elected President, Trump was, and Trump holds the presidential prerogative to say what US foreign policy will be.

John Bolton’s aspirations to publish 500 pages of what reportedly is a nonstop jeremiad against that fellow in the Oval Office faces a steep legal hurdle: the 1980 Supreme Court decision in Snepp v. United States. Frank Snepp was a CIA agent who spent 1968 in Vietnam, the year in which American weekly casualties peaked. In 1977 Snepp published a memoir of what must have been a most unhappy tour, even by the standards of wartime. Titled A Decent Interval, it ran some 600 pages. Its thesis, in a nutshell, was that America made an indecent exit from Vietnam, abandoning its allies, knowing that the North Vietnamese

Like many contemporary social movements—#metoo, Black Lives Matter, the Women’s March—the environmental lobby has tended to create an atmosphere of unanimity. In its struggle to win public and elite opinion, it has frequently evoked “science” as something settled and immutable, warning that those who dissent are either self-serving or seriously deranged. Yet in recent months, there has been growing criticism about the current green orthodoxy, including from people long associated with environmental causes. This has been most widely seen in the strange case of the Michael Moore–produced Planet of Humans, which exposes the rapacious profit-seeking and gratuitous environmental damage caused by the renewable energy industry.

A man accused of shooting eight people outside a San Antonio bar after he was turned away because he was too inebriated was arrested Thursday by U.S. marshals and Florida sheriff's deputies, police said. Jenelius Crew, 37, was arrested at a Miami hotel by a regional fugitive task force, San Antonio police said in a statement. On Wednesday, the department obtained eight aggravated assault and deadly weapon arrest warrants for him, the statement said. Crew is accused of opening fire on people outside a bar Friday night after he and others were denied entry because they were too drunk, police said. The victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

The Vatican on Thursday urged Catholics to divest from fossil fuels, a call made in church documents warning against the dangers of climate change. The 225-page encyclical, which is sent to all bishops within the church, also encouraged divesting from arms and monitoring sectors like mining to ensure they are not damaging the environment. The document, "Journeying Towards Care For Our Common Home," argues people “could favor positive changes ... by excluding from their investments companies that do not satisfy certain parameters,” according to Reuters.

America has reached an epistemological breaking point. For the first two months following the coronavirus outbreak, public-health experts insisted that we “follow the science” and implement their recommendations, even if it meant millions of lost jobs and significant restrictions on constitutionally protected activities, such as church attendance and freedom of assembly. Blue-state governors quickly positioned themselves as executors of this neutral scientific knowledge, condemning anti-lockdown protesters as “anti-scientific;” meantime, social media companies banned anti-lockdown groups and censored content from lockdown skeptics. But when protests erupted in the U.S. after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, many public-health experts reversed course—and subordinated “science” to their activist politics.

For more than two years now, Walid Phares has kept a secret. The national security expert favored by many conservatives was interviewed and investigated in the Russia collusion probe, mostly for an issue unrelated to Moscow. It was Egypt, actually. The allegation — like many in the Russia case —, turned out to be spurious, and Phares was never charged with wrongdoing by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team. Now, Phares is speaking out for the first time, suggesting that one of the motives of those who made the allegations and sustained the investigation was to hamper the early Trump presidency’s foreign policy goals, including the 45th president’s

"What," Marx asked, "is the Commune, that sphinx so tantalizing to the bourgeois mind?" In 1871 the Commune was the revolutionary government of Paris, a revolt against the newborn Third Republic of Adolphe Thiers. The communards, drawn from the ranks of city-dwelling laborers, overthrew the republican army and replaced it with an armed guard. The police were disbanded—or "defunded"—and reconstituted as an agency of the Commune. "It aimed to expropriate the expropriators." Churches were closed, judges were disestablished, and offices redistributed among the masses of the people. "In a rough sketch of national organization which the Commune had no time to develop," Marx wrote in "The Civil War in France,"

Senate Democrats are agonizing over what to do about Senate Republicans’ police reform proposal. They can either vote down the legislation next week and face charges of obstruction amid a national reckoning on race — or advance a bill they say needs massive changes in order to meet the moment. The dilemma was hoisted on them Wednesday after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell abruptly rejiggered the Senate schedule to bring legislation from Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) to the floor.

There is a growing call for Disney to rebrand one of its classic rides, which is intertwined with arguably the company's most controversial film. Amid the ongoing worldwide anti-racism protests in the wake of the May 25 killing of George Floyd, a number of discussions have taken place about previously accepted symbols of historical division in America. There have been some direct results from the renewed outcry, such as NASCAR banning the use of the Confederate flag at races and the country band Lady Antebellum renaming itself "Lady A." Disney has found itself in the middle of the debate due to Splash Mountain,

On June 17, 1932, 17,000 United States military veterans of World War I and 25,000 of their friends and family gathered in Washington, D.C. to demand early payment of their service certificate war bonuses. Although the bonuses were not due to be paid until 1945, the Great Depression had hit the United States and these veterans were floundering financially. General Douglas MacArthur, chief of staff of the Army, personally led US troops to forcibly drive away his fellow veterans, even though future 5 star general and president, Maj. Dwight Eisenhower (serving as an aide to MacArthur) counseled him not to have anything to do with the eviction.

CHICAGO — The world has entered a “new and dangerous phase” of the coronavirus pandemic, a top official from the World Health Organization said on Friday, a stark warning that came as the United States struggled to control spiraling outbreaks and as business leaders signaled growing unease with the country’s ability to effectively contend with the virus. Coronavirus cases spiked sharply across the American South and West, particularly in states that loosened restrictions on businesses several weeks ago. In Florida, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Arizona, daily counts of new coronavirus cases reached their highest levels of the pandemic this week.

Graham, a Republican from South Carolina who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he will honor the "blue slip" tradition and require the consent of home state senators to proceed -- in this case, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand. Graham's statement signals an uphill climb for Trump to get a new Senate-confirmed federal prosecutor in one of the nation’s most high-profile districts.

The chances that his veep selection might end up becoming president during his term can’t be discounted. Democrats have spent the Trump years talking about the virtues of the 25th Amendment. It lays out a process inside the executive branch that would temporarily and, if necessary, permanently replace a living president deemed by his Cabinet to be too infirm to serve as the most powerful man in the world.

The statue of Grant, who also served as the nation’s eighteenth president, was among three monuments in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park knocked down during the evening by a group of protesters. Other monuments toppled include a statue of Junípero Serra, an 18th century missionary recently declared a saint in the Catholic Church, and Francis Scott Key, the author of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the national anthem.

President Trump on Tuesday unveiled a plan to make reforms in police departments and acknowledged for the first time the existence of "systemic racism." He also promised to meet with some African American families whose relatives have been killed by police officers. That is one step toward healing our deep racial divisions. The next opportunity comes Saturday as the president is scheduled to break his rally "fast" in Tulsa. The Trump campaign claims they have received 800,000 ticket requests. Though not all will get into the 20,000-seat venue, the Trump re-election effort will have mined additional names for its digital campaign.
