Iran’s sanction relief proposal by Trump prompted Bolton’s departure: Report

Bolton’s ouster a defeat for Israel: MP

What Does Bolton’s Ouster Mean To Victims Of US Imperial Aggression?

What Does Bolton’s Ouster Mean To Victims Of US Imperial Aggression? Above Photo: From John Bolton, the hired gun who specializes in warmongering for Republican presidents, has legions of soul mates among Russia-obsessed Democrats. “If Trump tries to make peace with some US ‘enemies’ this election season, he will be opposed by corporate Democrats and their […]

Targeting Trump is No.1 priority for the ‘Resistance’ – even if it means rehabilitating John Bolton

First came the efforts to cast Bolton as some kind of “important check” on Donald Trump’s impulses. God forbid, after all, he might opt for diplomacy over sheer brute force. Then Trump spoke and confirmed all their worst fears. Bolton’s “tough guy” rhetoric was indeed hampering diplomatic efforts with North Korea, particularly as he suggested the […]

After Bolton, Trump Goals Remain Unrealized By Patrick J. Buchanan

“It is only among foreign policy elites in Beltway think tanks, the generals who ran the national security state, liberal interventionists in the media and the hierarchy of the GOP that we find echoes of Bolton. The rest of the country has moved on. They want an end to the endless wars and to put […]

Without Bolton’s Hindrance Peace Might be Possible with Iran and North Korea

On Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump finally fired his third national security advisor, John Bolton after eighteen long and grueling months. John happens to be the thirty-fifth member of Trump’s revolving door administration to get fired or resign, since he took office in 2016. Bolton gives a different version of events but regardless of whether […]

Bolton has left the building – hopefully, so too have his crackpot ideas

Though, as befits the chaos of the Trump White House, there is a dispute over whether Bolton resigned or was fired, for a world laboring under the dead weight of US exceptionalism and the hegemonic posture it gives rise to, this particular dispute is otiose. What is not in doubt is that, whereas President Trump […]

Bolton out, Iran in? Oil orices think so there’s a good reason oil prices tanked

Oil Price – There’s a good reason oil prices tanked on Tuesday (temporarily) and then continued to do so on Wednesday. Bolton has always been a warmonger, while Trump is a leveraged negotiator who may bring things to the brink of war but is not gunning for a conflict; rather for leverage in a high-stakes […]

Trump Fires John Bolton After “Disagreeing Strongly With His Suggestions”

By Tyler Durden While there was some feverish speculation as to what an impromptu presser at 1:30pm with US Secretary of State Pompeo, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and National Security Adviser Bolton would deliver, that was quickly swept aside moments later when Trump unexpectedly announced that he had fired Bolton as National Security Advisor, tweeting that […]

Bolton’s Exit: Does Adelson now need Trump more than Trump needs Adelson?

Donald Trump has just cut-off Sheldon Adelson’s chief proxy in Washington: John Bolton. But will it change US policy on Palestine, or Iran? This week, two important events just collided. First was the announcement by Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu that he plans to annex Palestine’s West Bank. But the second event threatens to nullify the […]

Bolton Tried His Best to Draw the U.S. Into War. Luckily He Failed.

President Donald Trump parted ways with his hawkish national security adviser John Bolton on Tuesday, ending a 17-month tenure that included additional troops deployed to the Middle East, saw the U.S. repeatedly threaten “military action” against the Venezuelan government, and brought the country within minutes of bombing Iran. In May 2018, less than […]

Bolton’s sacking won’t change US foreign policy but Russia is always ready to talk – Kremlin

With Bolton gone, pundits around the world are trying to guess if this provides an opportunity to resolve some of the diplomatic deadlocks the US is stuck in. But Russia doesn’t set its expectations too high, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told media on Wednesday. We don’t think that the presence or dismissal of any official […]

Trump Sacks Bolton. Who is the Next National Security Advisor?

It’s a good start, way short of what’s needed — cleaning house of all Trump regime far-right extremists, notably Pompeo and likeminded hardliners. Chance for positive change is virtually nil. Dirty business as usual in Washington won’t miss a beat — other than perhaps somewhat less toxic rhetoric with Bolton gone, short of enough to […]

Kill Your Inner John Bolton

By  Caitlin Johnstone Source We each have a miniature John Bolton living rent-free inside our heads, ruining our peace and promoting world domination at every opportunity. Hear me out. The most common objection I hear when I advocate non-interventionist foreign policy can essentially be boiled down to something like, “But- but- but if we’re not […]

John Bolton being sidelined by Trump allows the world to breathe easier

Punctuating its history, crazed warmongers – people for whom war and conflict is the acme of purpose and meaning – have occupied key positions with US political and military establishments. Take the seventh US president, Andrew Jackson. This is a man who took savagery to new levels while serving in the US Army, earning himself […]
