Corn_Fed: Important to remember that Bolton didn't resign as a result of his horror of Trump's behavior, gross ignorance, and crimes.

No, Bolton is upset because Trump fired him. If he hadn't been fired, Bolton would still be there, aiding and abetting Trump's crimes.


There were enough stories out there before he was let go about how he really had his own criminal warmongering agenda.  He just pointed at people Trump happens to be in bed with.  Urinating.

Deathbymeteor: Boo_Guy: LegacyDL: Is there a word or term for someone who doesn't want a job but then decides to take the job and completely do the opposite of the job requirements to the point that they think it was the job they originally signed up for?

I'm betting the Germans have a word for that.

Rückwärtsarbeiter might fit, literally "backwards worker"


The Germans already have a word for Trump: schneidelwutzen.

Dusk-You-n-Me: U.S. Trade Rep. Lighthizer denied Bolton claim that Trump asked Chinese President Xi Jinping for help winning the election. "Absolutely untrue. Never happened. I was there. I have no recollection of that ever happening.I don't believe it's true.I don't believe it ever happened."

LIGAFF: avian: FTA: "Somebody said he went out and wrote a book. If he wrote a book, I can't imagine that he can because that's highly classified information. Even conversations with me, they're highly classified. I told that to the attorney general before - I will consider every conversation with me as president highly classified," Mr Trump said.
"So that would mean that if he wrote a book and the book gets out that he's broken the law. And I would think that he'd have criminal problems. I hope so," the president said.

Trump obviously doesn't realize it is explicitly illegal to classify information because it is embarrassing to Trump (or anyone else).

Someone wake me up when Barr acts on something Trump does which is explicitly illegal.


He acts all the time on illegal activity. It is just that the actions he does appears to be performing cover ups and destroying evidence. It the reason why he been hired by administrations since the Bush Sr administration were told by Barr to pardon all the people involved in the Iran Contra scandal to avoid them testifying.

Why would I believe anything this neocon writes?
 
2020-06-17 8:57:25 PM  
I just hope someone is saving all these crimes up, putting them in a little envelope, and waiting until he can be charged with them. As much was suggested during the Muller investigation.

I hope Biden does more than just win, I hope Biden wins with a majority that is humiliating for Trump, then Trump goes to jail.

Lock him up.

Bolton is just another Israel firster providing distraction from the FBI report showing they had a hand in helping Trump's election

Why would you believe Trump* and handler's forthcoming denials?


/Trump* isn't a neocon, not even a con, but a con man, and an ignorant one at that.

NeoCortex42: You could have testified six months ago, but chose not to. Fark you, Bolton.  I hope not a single book sells.


That's true. What kind of POS tries to play both sides against the other like that?
Rich men. Rich men do that shiat. Never miss an angle.

/I am coming to the conclusion that all rich people are dishonest. Every single one. Yes, even Leo DiCaprio.

SolderGlob: While I am in dire need of a new book to read, and Bolton's does seem quite enticing, I just cannot give that corrupt, walrus looking motherfarker any of my money in exchange for it. 


[Fark user image 416x367]


I'd think anything of value is usually spoken on multiple news casts, articles and talk shows I'd think.  I think most of these book deals are elaborate kickbacks for people in high positions of power to spill the beans of the inner-workings of a dysfunctional Executive Branch and then if they sell any books it's just icing on the cake.  I'm sure Bolton got a nice, lucrative advance for it.

neongoats: "Had Democratic impeachment advocates not been so obsessed with their Ukraine blitzkrieg in 2019, had they taken the time to inquire more systematically about Trump's behavior across his entire foreign policy, the impeachment outcome might well have been different. "

Because this would have made the right wing criminal shiat-golems act like human beings all of the sudden? The problem isn't just Trump, but that the right wing is, as a whole, poisonous to civilization. Trump is just the golden avatar of the right's lack of anything resembling morals or ethics. And they prove it every farking day they aren't dragging him out of the whitesthouse in leg irons.


McConnell is the keystone to the traitorous shiat bridge.  It is he that must be dealt with.

Is it just me, or does Bolton always look like a man served with Divorce Papers, An Eviction Notice, and some bad news from a Doctor in a row?

Somaticasual: Is it just me, or does Bolton always look like a man served with Divorce Papers, An Eviction Notice, and some bad news from a Doctor in a row?


There was one time I saw him smile (can't find the video at the moment). He was at a summit with Trump, and he got to meet and shake hands with Putin, and he had this giddy ear-to-ear smile on his face and his cheeks were flushed beet red, like a 16 year old girl meeting her boyband crush. He was legitimately star-struck.

And that's when it occurred to me: He wishes Putin was President.

RaptorLC: So Trump assumed Xi was just as impulsive and susceptible to flattery as he is. Not much of a surprise there.


Trump is used to working with incompetent "business" men who inherited their money, just like he has, and have never had to study or work a day in their lives.  People who rise up through government service or the ranks of the military are a great mystery to him.

Ghastly: HAMMERTOE: The Gospel, according to John (Bolton)?

More like The Revelation Of John (Bolton).

2 As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my warrgarblerr before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Turd, make his paths bigly,
4 John did warmonger in the wilderness, and preach the projection of power for the commission of sins.
5 And he sent out warning unto all the land of the afghans, and they of Iraq, and all the axis of evil; at all such rogue states did he rattle his saber at, and their weapons of mass destruction.
6 And John's nose was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a loose skin about his gullet; and he did eat donuts and wild honey;
7 And waargarbled saying, There cometh one more deplorable than I after me, the latchet of whose boots I am not worthy to stoop down and lick.

Donald Trump "pleaded" with Chinese President Xi Jinping to help him win re-election in 2020 by purchasing more US farming products

That is an incredibly frightening prospect, given bolton's influence.

Godscrack: People believe this shiat? John Bolton had a chance to do the right thing during the impeachment hearings. Now he wants to make money off a book. Even if it's true, it's not going to hurt Trump.
Summertime entertainment for the feeble minded.


No he didn't have a chance at the impeachment.

But now he truly farked him.

People will talk about that book.

As an allegation, the American people are owed a full investigation, and if this is true, then he deserves a fair trial, before he hangs but his neck until dead.

That is the law.
And we the people should stand to see it through.

I'm terrified that we'll see another post-Nixon "let's just put it behind us" moment.

I think we all assume there's more than enough to convict, and in the primaries all I wanted was a campaign promise from someone was handcuffs at the inauguration.

And we have to remember Trump asked Ukraine to drag the Biden name through the mud.  And during the hearings Nunes and Jordan did nothing else but do that.

I know he's an older man but a Biden scorched earth justice department will make me feel a lot better.
