Neocon down!

The God-Emperor axes Mustache John Bolton:
President Donald Trump has fired National Security Adviser John Bolton after a string of disagreements between the two over how the U.S. should handle North Korea and Iran.

Trump announced on Twitter that he had asked for Bolton's resignation, which he received this morning, after the president had "disagreed with many of his suggestions."

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning,” Trump said on Twitter.
You can probably imagine how the conversation that preceded his departure went:

Trump: How should we deal with Afghanistan?

Bolton: Send more troops! We need more troops!

Trump: Easy, 'stache. All right, moving on. What about Iran?

Bolton: Bomb them! Bomb bomb bomb them! Then send in the troops!

Trump: How many troops do you think we will need?

Bolton: All of them! Bring back the draft. Draft the girls! And the Canadians!

Trump: I don't think we can actually draft Canadians.

Bolton: WHY DO YOU HATE ISRAEL?

Trump:  I almost dread to ask this, but do you have any thoughts concerning the trade war with China?

Bolton: All the bombs! All the troops! All the nukes! Rain fire upon the land! Blood for the Blood God!

Trump: (picks up phone) Yeah, Mike, we seem to have a little problem here...

Blogger Borsabil September 10, 2019 1:03 PM  

Bolton served the purpose of seeing off the neo clowns for a few months while he was waiting for the Mueller gay op to run it's course. Bolton got not one single thing passed, he was a toothless tiger that the GE kept on a tight leash and muzzle. The tactical benefit from having Bolton in the administration was that Trump could point to him during negotiations and say 'See that dude? He's a genuine psychopath who wants to see the world burn. So let's do a deal or else I might let him loose.'

Anyway reading the tea leaves what do we make of this? I reckon he's going to pull out of Afghanistan, which would be wildly popular heading into 2020.

I'll never claim to have read Trump's mind. That being said, I do seem to recall the cries of anguish from some here about all the neo-clowns in Trump's Whitehouse. Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. Whether Trump got it from reading Machiavelli or elsewhere, there are times you put your enemies in positions to keep them quiet while you suss out who their allies are. When you fighting the swamp, just using a machete isn't enough - you need to have more tactics running behind the scenes and in parallel.

No, the shrieking from the Left was identical to their shrieks against Jordan B. Peterson or Benji Shipiru. Trump ropes in their designated punching bags to defang them and prove he's open-minded. Then he castrates them (Mittens, Christie, etc.) and casts them into the abyss as soon as they countersignal clearly enough. Remember that his neocon opposition can carve out power if he dismisses them too quickly.

I wouldn't be surprised if he appoints Shapiru to head up the Ministry of Train Deportations at some point, and then makes sure he's gets a booster seat in the back of the caboose.

Yes, he was. But he had no workable solution to the problem. Trump isn't interested in being told there's a problem; he can figure that out for himself. He wants solutions.

There is no solution to Afghanistan. Either the people there can keep out the Taliban or they can't. We can't do it for them. Time to cut our loses and get out. And make it clear that if we ever have to go back in, we'll just kill everyone involved and be done with it.

Yes - NeoCon down, but is this just about NeoCons?
"The end of America’s unchallenged global economic dominance has arrived sooner than expected, thanks to the very same Neocons who gave the world the Iraq, Syria and the dirty wars in Latin America. Just as the Vietnam War drove the United States off gold by 1971, its sponsorship and funding of violent regime change wars against Venezuela and Syria – and threatening other countries with sanctions if they do not join this crusade – is driving European and other nations to create their alternative financial institutions." - Michael Hudson Feb/19
"This break has been building for quite some time, and was bound to occur. But who would have thought that Donald Trump would become the catalytic agent? No left-wing party, no socialist, anarchist or foreign nationalist leader anywhere in the world could have achieved what he is doing to break up the American Empire. The Deep State is reacting with shock at how this right-wing real estate grifter has been able to drive other countries to defend themselves by dismantling the U.S.-centered world order. To rub it in, he is using Bush and Reagan-era Neocon arsonists, John Bolton and now Elliott Abrams, to fan the flames in Venezuela. It is almost like a black political comedy. The world of international diplomacy is being turned inside-out. A world where there is no longer even a pretense that we might adhere to international norms, let alone laws or treaties."

Better Tulsi than Bolton, perhaps. ``No more pointless foreign adventures'' is a pretty weak statement, but it beats Bolton's stance that we need to spill more blood and treasure on more of them.

She might be more valuable as a Dem presidential contender for a while, yet. The contrast between her and the barking madness of the anointed Dem contenders seems worthwhile.

[CEV] Evil people must be removed before anyone can rule with justice.
[ISV] Purge the wicked from the king's presence, and his throne will be established in righteousness.
[NIV] remove wicked officials from the king's presence, and his throne will be established through righteousness.

It's a feature, not a bug. Consider what they've wrought in the tech sector: what was an well-paying job field has been reduced to ridiculousness like 5/7/10 years required experience for an ENTRY level job, the difficulty of getting a job in that sector (it took me 8 months last time) all spurred on by the continual importation of cheap H1B and L1 foreign labor… and with these companies, would you be surprised if disemploying regular Americans and depressing the wages paid to them were an actual goal?

The only bad thing about Bolton being gone is now I'll hear his BS as a paid foreign policy "expert" more than before. He is perhaps the most unentertaining talking head of them all - so damn predictable. Hearing him talk is like hearing a parody of neocon.

Bolton's 'stache was ceremonially torn off his face, which was then slapped twice, after his courts marshal. He was then pushed out of the fort and into the desert, as everyone turned their backs to him, and closed the gates.

And then he was given the Custer treatment by some Plains Indians, whatever that was.

Except on our southern border?


Our border? Since when do we have borders that neocons recognize?

The real question for me is not just how incongruous he was, but what is the alternative. The President's potential "talent" pool for the job seems to be nothing but neocons, Bushies and the like.

It's always the same cabal. Ivy degrees, Kennedy school of government, Council on Foreign relations-all members in good standing of Codevilla's "Ruling Class".

It's a reminder that the swamp is not only big, but deep and putrid.

Looks like it's related to Uncle Binnies declaration of the annexation of the West Bank. Nation of sociopaths.

Yes, of West Bank Palistinians.

Buchanan? I've heard that Tucker Carlson has been floated.

Trump is a Queens version of Bugs Bunny.

Trump is a visual guy. I bet he has every scene in both Godfather movies memorized. (We don’t speak of the 3rd one). A frustrated Hillary complained about him running his company like a mafia family, mainly because he keeps secrets, always assumes he’s being recorded, and doesn’t write anything down. Not a bad way to run an empire.

Great news, a lot still hinges on who he replaces him with but I can't imagine it being another warhawk. Pompeo is next for the axe.

I've been hearing about the coming collapse of the dollar all my life. Somehow, it never seems to happen.

As disappointed as I was when Bolton was hired, his firing by the GE made up for it...and some.

Yeah, I'll take a more broad reading of the Old Testament over single verse quotes. There is literally no scenario where Trump would have been able to achieve anything by excluding or purging all of the swamp creatures on day one. That would more likely have lead to real attempts to impeachment and alienation of all the normies. This isn't a sprint cupcake, this is a marathon.

I would have said that it never stops happening. When my grandfather was young, a nickle would buy a pie and a pot of coffee. You can't get that much food for one hundred times as much money today.

Our currency isn't money, and it's been in slow motion collapse since 1913.

I'm not saying "he should have cut them off cold turkey!", though I have zero problem with that; no, what I'm getting at is that there seems to be a willingness on Trump's part to surround himself with known-bad people… even when there's a perfect opportunity to replace them.

At some point, it becomes impossible (or insane) to deny the pattern.

I am also curious where Japan stands in all of this. They don't have their own nukes, but besides that, are they prepared to resist the Chinese? Is that question even relevant. What is China's interest in Japan?
