John Bolton...A Man of Strength and Credibility
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot

"They’re all out there on
the public record. I've never been shy about what my views are. The
important thing is what the president says and what advice I give
- Former U.N. Ambassador John
Bolton on any past statements made
He's gone...well almost anyway.
Now in the transition stage of turning his National Security Advisor
position over to former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton on April 9th, Lt.
Gen. H.R. McMaster, who will now also retire from his 34-years of
military service, cannot go soon enough as far as I'm concerned...and I'll go one step further...he never should have been appointed to
so vital a position in the first place, good little islamic condoner
that he is.
can read about those specifics in my article The
Manipulation of Willful Ignorance as I have been a vocal critic
of Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster's appointment from the very day in March
2017 when President Trump announced that he'd be replacing embattled
Gen. Mike Flynn as National Security Advisor with this man instead of
John Bolton, the man some say Trump had always wanted.
who advised President Trump to choose McMaster...none other then
former Armed Services Committee Chair Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Sen.
Tom Cotton (R-AK), and Secretary of Defense General Mattis. And while Gen. Mattis looked at the appointment from a military
perspective alone and who has America's best interests at
heart, and with good guy Tom Cotton I believe being misled by John McCain, it was McCain, one of the biggest Trump bashers and one who I also believe to be a Deep State swamp dwelling operative, who not only advised but
pushed our new president into placing a fellow islamic condoner into a
position that would see him crafting U.S. foreign policy and
decisions that make it to the president's desk...security decisions
that have made us anything but more safe.
And while McMaster's leaving has
been fodder for the D.C. rumor mill for quite some time now what with
the rumors starting to affect his interactions with foreign officials
and with others within the Trump cabinet, especially with his contentious relationship with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis being no
secret...in fact McMaster has whined that Gen. Mattis “treats me
like a three-star rather than a coequal”...on the surface at least
it appears his leaving Trump's cabinet is quite amicable as Trump
publicly praised McMaster for his “outstanding job” and saying
that he would “always remain my friend.”
But that is something I seriously
doubt because Trump and McMaster were often at odds on both a
professional as well as on a personal level. Remember, as Commander-in-Chief, Trump pushed back hard against McMaster on his
decision to escalate the war in Afghanistan, and on the personal side
it is now suspected that it was someone in McMaster's orbit or even
McMaster himself who leaked to the press President Trump's congratulatory call
to Vladim Putin on his winning his latest election...a call most forget that
even Obama made when he was president. And that coupled with McMaster
being a man of many condescending words during the White House daily
briefings, it left Trump, according to some, needing to put the rigid
McMaster in his place on numerous occasions by telling him, “I get
it, general, I get it.” So it should come as no surprise that H.R.
McMaster, a military man truly not in the president's corner, had to
know that John
Bolton...who held both State and Justice Department posts under President
Reagan and both President Bushes, including serving as
Undersecretary for Arms Control and International Security Affairs at
the U.S. Department of State under President George W. Bush...is
a true professional who knows all the world's key players, how things are done,
and what games to play in order to get them done...done to America's
advantage that is...and is well-versed on issues both domestic
and on the foreign policy stage. Truly a much better all around fit
for President Trump than McMaster ever was, and a man who has stated
that he will “absolutely
go along with Trump,"
we have in John Bolton a strong willed, pro-military, unabashed
foreign policy hawk and 'so-called' neoconservative whose views on
issues like North Korea, Iraq and Syria will allow him together with
Donald Trump to seriously kick not only islamic butt but North
Korea's Kim Jong-un's butt as well.
with Bolton's naysayers like Sen. Christopher Coons of Delaware, a
liberal Democrat of course, saying that Bolton’s positions on Iran and
North Korea “are overly aggressive at best and downright dangerous
at worst,” you just know that President Trump has made the right
choice not only in picking Amb. Bolton to replace Gen. McMaster as
his National Security Advisor but in doing so right on the heels of
his replacing so out of his league Secretary of State Rex Tillerson
with C.I.A. Director Mike Pompeo. And with both these men now in
place to form the strongest national security team we have seen in
quite some time, you can be assured that changes in America's foreign
policy approach are not just down the road but are already here.
One case in point, Bolton knows
that the upcoming May talks between Trump and Kim Jong-un will not be
a panacea for peace as some, including McMaster, hope they would be
but that it will be just another in a long line of North Korea's dog
and pony shows. In fact, in regards to North Korea know that John
Bolton recently made a legal case for not only a pre-emptive strike
against North Korea but for regime change as well by calling the
man-child's regime an "imminent threat." So it should be
quite interesting to see how this now three man tour-de-force takes
on the oh so mad man-child with the oh so silly haircut.
in regards to Iran, Amb. Bolton is a staunch supporter of the Jewish
State of Israel and of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself, and
like Netanyahu, Bolton so rightfully wants President Trump to let
Obama's very bad nuclear deal... as in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of
Action (JCPOA)...to fall by the wayside...a total 180ᴼ
departure from the wishes of Obama supporting, Palestinian
supporting, Lt. Gen. McMaster. Writing
an article last October in The Hill titled, Mr.
President, don't put America at risk with flawed Iran deal...Amb.
Bolton's words were in direct contrast to those of Gen. McMaster who
urged President Trump not to abandon said deal warning him of serious consequences if he did.
But could McMaster's argument
pass the proverbial 'smell test'...I don't think so and neither does
Amb. Bolton who hopefully will now convince President Trump to see it
his way and pull us out of a deal that should never have been signed
in the first place. Saying that trashing the deal will of course
“spur Iran to accelerate its nuclear-weapons program to rush across
the finish line,” but even that means nothing in the scope of
things for trashing the deal will not “induce Iran” to become
more threatening or supportive of global terrorism than it already is.
The real issue is how much worse Iran’s behavior will be once it
gets deliverable nuclear weapons...something that McMaster never
“President Trump continues to
appoint true friends of Israel to senior positions. John Bolton is
one of the most outstanding.” So said Israeli said Justice Minister
Now as far as Israel itself is
concerned, with Israel being a key if not 'the' key player in the
Middle East, John Bolton is rightly perceived as a man of action and
a “stalwart friend of Israel.” His appointment also suggests to
many in Israel that on May 12th...when the next scheduled deadline
regarding the nuclear deal is reached...President Trump will indeed withdraw us from the 'very bad'
Iranian nuclear deal.
And Amb. John Bolton is also opposed to a two-state solution in regards to the
Israeli/Palestinian conflict as opposed to Gen. McMaster who not only publicly pushed for a two-state solution but who just about demanded
it by his constantly referring to a Palestinian state existing before
1947. Fact: there never was a Palestinian state and hopefully there never
will be one. And let's not forget that it was Gen. McMaster who had described Israel on many occasions as being both
“illegitimate” and an “occupying power.” But with Bolton's
appointment we and Israel will see not only a tougher U.S. stance
towards the Palestinians, but also a new beginning for much needed
sound American leadership throughout the entirety of the Middle East
region...leadership that sees America standing by her allies not
deserting them or stabbing them in the back as Obama did to
Israel...and as McMaster, in my opinion, really wanted to do in regards
As for the domestic stage, the
differences between the two men can also be seen as it was McMaster
who allowed for Obama cabinet official Susan Rice to retain her top
security clearance even after she was accused of conducting illegal
surveillance on American citizens...something Bolton would never have
done as he has been a staunch critic of Susan Rice ever since she
went on her Sunday morning talk show 'Benghazi blame game tour' if
And when just a few weeks ago
McMaster said there was “incontrovertible’’ evidence of a
Russian plot to disrupt the 2016 U.S. election not only did he draw
an immediate public rebuke from the tweet trigger finger of President
Trump, but he saw John Bolton coming to the president's defense by
saying on FOX News that he's been a long time skeptic of Russian
interference in the presidential election and that all the media brouhaha
over such nonsense was was nothing but a "false flag"
operation...an operation showing no signs of Russia's fixing or
tampering with the election results. And notice how I say fixing or
tampering with not trying to influence which is a totally different
animal. Bolton knew that critical difference...McMaster obviously did
not. And dare we forget McMaster's publicly offered but widely
scrutinized 'non-denial' denial that President Trump shared
classified intelligence with Russians in the Oval Office.
A man so obviously not in Trump's
corner...a man that should have been let go months ago...a man who
never should have been appointed in the first place, but hey,
non-politician Donald Trump is indeed allowed to make some mistakes.
But in his now choosing Amb. John Bolton as the replacement for Gen.
H.R. McMaster as his National Security Advisor, know that no mistakes
have been made for John Bolton, who called the appointment "an
honor" and said that he looks "forward to working with
President Trump and his leadership team" to "make our
country safer at home and stronger abroad,” both President Trump
and 'We the People' have in John Bolton a man who will put America
first and who will not be ashamed to do so.
we, our president, or our country ask for anything more...no...I don't think so.
