As stupid incompetent and fuckall as President Trump is, we can be thankful for a few things.
He hasn’t yet set light to Fort McHenry’s arsenal. He hasn’t stubbed his toe on Malmstrom’s itchy nukes. He hasn’t gone Bay of Pigs on Portland. He hasn’t called a trans-polar airstrike on Chris Hayes.
There are so many personality chinks to be wary of. It’s not clear exactly where and when he’ll go Commander Guy. He will of course, but it hasn’t happened yet. It’s early enough we can still take some pleasure in Armageddon being weeks away.
It’s not much to be glad about, I’m only taking what I can get. This however makes my blood run cold.
Senior White House officials and members of the National Security Council are pushing former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton as a replacement for ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.
It’s the Free Bacon I know. But Bolton has gadflied every administration official and presidential pretender for 20 years. He’s as ambitious and greedy as a person can get. He’s as bloody and violent as a person can get. I have no doubt he’s got every bar buddy and evangelical phone tree flunky calling the White House.
Bolton will not be denied his place in history. He must start a war with Iran.
To Stop Iran’s Bomb, Bomb Iran
By JOHN R. BOLTON MARCH 26, 2015
…This gold standard is now everywhere in jeopardy because the president’s policy is empowering Iran. Whether diplomacy and sanctions would ever have worked against the hard-liners running Iran is unlikely… The inconvenient truth is that only military action like Israel’s 1981 attack on Saddam Hussein’s Osirak reactor in Iraq or its 2007 destruction of a Syrian reactor, designed and built by North Korea, can accomplish what is required. Time is terribly short, but a strike can still succeed.
He’s been flogging this bombshell for years.
Pray everybody. Because if the Bacon is right, we’re in shit.
The selection of Bolton as the next national security adviser would empower Flynn’s allies still in the White House and send a message that his national security vision is represented within the Trump administration. Bolton is also favored by White House staffers who are opposed to the selection of any candidate who criticized President Trump during the 2016 campaign.
Bolton is so maniacal and manipulative he’ll have Trump on his ass in a few months. We’ll be in Iran before 2019 for sure.
