“John Bolton played an instrumental role in politicizing the intelligence that misled Congress and the American people into going to war in Iraq. He supports proactively bombing Iran, conducting a first strike on North Korea without provocation, and has said, ‘There is no such thing as the United Nations.’ Mr. Bolton has never seen a military conflict he didn’t like. President Trump is endangering the American public by appointing this extreme war hawk as his chief advisor on national security matters.
“With the nomination of CIA Director Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State and now the appointment of Mr. Bolton as National Security Advisor, President Trump is assembling a war cabinet full of ‘yes men’ who will fan his worst impulses. John Bolton has already blundered the United States into one terrible conflict; we cannot let him do it again.” (US Senator Markey, Senate Foreign Relations Committee)
Even Putin should be worried, since it has recently been revealed that former French President Sarkozy allegedly took a major bribe (around $62 Million US) from Libya’s Gaddafi in 2007, and only a few years later became hell-bent on removing him and was at the forefront of the invasion of Libya and the killing of Gaddafi. Even Putin may end up trumped, as Mueller closes in and Trump lashes out.
“Senator Markey Calls Appointment of John Bolton as National Security Advisor a Grave Danger to the American People Thursday, March 22, 2018
Washington (March 22, 2018) – Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement after President Donald Trump announced the resignation of Lt. General H. R. McMaster as his National Security Advisor and the appointment of former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton.
John Bolton has stated that to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, “only military action…can accomplish what is required.” He believes that it is “perfectly legitimate for the United States to respond to…North Korea’s nuclear weapons by striking first.” And before he was clamoring for war in those countries, he was “confident that Saddam Hussein has hidden weapons of mass destruction and production facilities in Iraq.”
“Appointing John Bolton to be National Security Advisor is a grave danger to the American people and a clear message from President Trump that he is gearing up for military conflict,” said Senator Markey. “John Bolton played an instrumental role in politicizing the intelligence that misled Congress and the American people into going to war in Iraq. He supports proactively bombing Iran, conducting a first strike on North Korea without provocation, and has said, ‘There is no such thing as the United Nations.’ Mr. Bolton has never seen a military conflict he didn’t like. President Trump is endangering the American public by appointing this extreme war hawk as his chief advisor on national security matters.
“With the nomination of CIA Director Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State and now the appointment of Mr. Bolton as National Security Advisor, President Trump is assembling a war cabinet full of ‘yes men’ who will fan his worst impulses. John Bolton has already blundered the United States into one terrible conflict; we cannot let him do it again.”. https://www.markey.senate.gov/news/press-releases/senator-markey-calls-appointment-of-john-bolton-as-national-security-advisor-a-grave-danger-to-the-american-people
“John Bolton’s consistent, public, and remarkably unashamed response to nearly every international crisis — including Iraq in 2002 and both Iran and North Korea at present — has been to call for war. He will now serve a president desperately lacking in impulse control, judgment, and national security experience.“ (Michael Breen of the Truman Project)
Bolton “recently advocated a first strike on North Korea and pulling out of the nuclear deal with Iran…. Fans of Bolton’s tough talk are rejoicing, however, including thriller novelist Brad Thor.” (VOA-Herman, 22 March 2018) https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2018/03/23/trump-replacing-his-national-security-adviser-with-warmongering-mercer-linked-fox-news-commentator-bush-appointee-john-bolton/ The opinion of a thriller novelist named for the violent hammer wielding god of thunder and lightening (Thor) is supposed to be the standard now?
McMaster is apparently in place until mid-April, possibly giving some time to save food and water and make whatever plans possible in such limited time. Doing whatever you would like to do before you die is a good idea, though always a good recommendation, anyway, as we can die at any time.
For the 2016 election cycle, John Bolton’s Super PAC got $3 million from Robert Mercer https://www.opensecrets.org/pacs/pacgave2.php?cycle=2016&cmte=C00542464
Robert Mercer influence seems to be tightening the noose. Mercer gave $3 million to John Bolton’s Super PAC for the 2016 election cycle. $2.5 million went from the John Bolton Super PAC to Connell Donatelli and $362,000 to Cambridge Analytica. Bolton currently works for Fox News, owned by long-time Trump friend Murdoch.

Update note: In “Bolton Was Early Beneficiary of Cambridge Analytica’s Facebook Data“, the New York Times points out that The John Bolton Super PAC hired Cambridge Analytica for the first time in August of 2014, within months of Cambridge Analytica’s creation and while Cambridge Analytica “was still harvesting the Facebook data“. Over the next two years, the John Bolton Super PAC paid them almost $1.2 million. Read the article here: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/23/us/politics/bolton-cambridge-analyticas-facebook-data.html
