Keep John Bolton OUT! He is a NEOCon!

Keep John Bolton OUT! He is a NEOCon!

The New National Security Advisor [NSA]: NoNoNo to John Bolton! Yes, Sir! to Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster.

Once again, new candidates have to be vetted for standard WH positions. Without any hesitation, I would warmly recommend Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster. I do not know McMaster. Yet, I am fully aware of his distinguished military/intellectual history.

Let me quote from the NYTimes [2/18/17]:
“General McMaster, a highly decorated Army officer, is considered one of the military’s leading intellectuals. He earned something of cult status in the military as a young major for his influential 1997 book: Dereliction of Duty, an indictment of the military’s failure to stand up to LBJ and other civilian leaders during the Vietnam War.”

Ironically, I have cautioned military officers at a class at Ft. McNair, Wash. D.C  to refuse civilian orders which cannot be carried out or are doomed to fail. I cited LBJ, who never served in our military but created the “Gulf of Tonkin Resolution” false flag. POTUS LBJ stated that the North Vietnamese attacked our navy vessels in the Gulf of Tonkin but history shows that he lied just like Bush Jr, Cheney, and the other “chicken hawks” had done on 9/11.

Remember: in the Vietnam War, we lost over fifty thousand dead. In addition, over 250,000 men/women were wounded or incapacitated. How many dead or shattered military do we have from Iraq, Afghanistan or North Africa?  Get it?

In contrast to the scholar/warrior, Lt Gen. McMaster, John Bolton is our in-house cowardly neocon. Bolton went to Yale to receive his BA and J.D. Next he spent most of his professional adult life making certain he was never in any war zone. Bolton digs an office job with benefits.

Bolton was a contemporary of Bill and Hillary Clinton at Yale School. He wrote the following in his Yale 25th reunion book [Wikipedia]:

“I confess I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy. I considered the war in Vietnam already lost.”

I have known John professionally for several decades. Overall, I found him to be quite likeable, if not basically a “moral coward’ and “intellectual bully”. His intellectual firepower was close to nil. He reflexively took a tough stance  with his perceived adversaries [North Korea, Russia, et.al.] The problem with Bolton was/ is the simple fact that he spent most of his professional life pandering for favors and money from his Republican patrons [Adelson, Mercer]. Like the other chicken hawks, he was also involved in the illegal “Iran Contra Affair” during the Reagan administration.

As with most of the other NeoCons who were afraid to die in battle, Bolton had no problem recommending that ordinary American citizens offer themselves as cannon fodder in the Iraq War.
What was a couple of thousand more dead American soldiers to a man who openly feared kinetic action for himself?

Bolton “attempted to have the chief bioweapons analyst in the State Department Bureau of Intelligence and Research [INR] and the CIA’s national intelligence officer for Latin American affairs reassigned.” [Wikipedia]. Bolton “forged the documents about yellowcake uranium from Niger” [Wikipedia] that allowed Bush Jr to rationalize the nonsensical Iraq war. Accordingly, Bolton would stop any intelligence or professional who might contradict his own inherently misguided views about war and nation building. He withheld evidence which ran counter to his own goals when he had served both Sec States Condi Rice and Colin Power.

Bolton has never had any problem lying under oath during his different confirmation hearings throughout his different careers at the State Dept. Nevertheless, he has received the whole-hearted endorsement of the Jewish casino mobster, Sheldon Adelson. That’s a red flag!

Bolton should not ever be brought back into any present or future administration. Unlike Lt Gen. H. R. McMaster, Bolton is the “civilian rat”  who got away with murder, again and again. Like POTUS Obama who had received a Nobel Peace Prize for having done nothing [even before his eight year tenure], Bolton also had the incredible audacity to have himself nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

I would appreciate it if Dr. Rand Paul would write a letter to the Trump team informing them that Bolton is D.O.A. Dead On Arrival!

The British novelist, Charles Dickens writes in his novel Great Expectations:

“In a word, I was too cowardly to do what I know to be right, as I had been too cowardly to avoid doing what I knew to be wrong.”

    In system like this, we have right now, members of military (lower class) used by (upper class) to go teach lesson members of only upper class in another countries. And when they teach them, members of upper class from invaded country, goes to USA, or they get in some compromise with member of domestic upper class to stay home to suck blood of own lower class in some weak compromise with members of US upper class until they change their time again. After that, lower class, back home is becoming poorer while rich richer. It used to be different, and invaded countries would get real money coming from work, not from wall street manipulation. Meaning they would be really occupied like W. Germany, S. Korea, Japan … did. USA is becoming impotent UK before WW1 unable to occupy countries. Bolton is idiot who does not understand that.

    1. Embrey

      I believe neocons are one political wing of the Communist, global imperialist movement. Direct line from Trotsky to neocons.

      1. Chia Cha

        Oh do not worry, they may only think they are communist, but they are bureaucrats and they are all members of bureaucratic caste (caste is own hierarchy, only listening those above), they are nothing. Also how can exist revolutionary leader, that is impossible, if he is leader then he is leading someone, therefore we have hierarchy, and hierarchy is caste, so far in human society we have only hierarchy of clergy (for instance modern Iran, Vatican), bureaucrats (USSR and fascist Italy), military (NAZI Germany), or aristocracy (country of Bhutan, maybe). Capitalists are in upper class (horizontal in it selfe USA, 8-9 of them). Imagined communists are also class, working class, but never existed on power (meaning without those above).

        1. Chia Cha

          Therefore neocons (bureaucrats) are fascists. USSR was, also fascism, just, red one (they were just saying they were communists, to able to conquer world, but they were Russian national fascist hiding them self under propaganda lying how they liberate all workers of the world buy putting working class on power)…

          1. Embrey

            I think that is the part you do not understand.
            People who profess communism and power to the people and the working class are only selling false hope. Their goal was never to empower anybody but themselves by using the disenfranchised.
            You say they are bureaucrats. OK. You do realize that the neocons have included George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama? Hillary was also a neocon. McCain, neocon. I can go on. The point is, they are not just bureaucrats but like communists they are collectiviststs.

          2. Chia Cha

            Yes, bureaucratic caste tends to promote collectivism as way to overthrow ruling capitalist class (those bureaucrats are most of the time even supported by capitalists), and if bureaucrats gets on power we get fascism. Fascism goes stronger when economy is weak, meaning when woking class stop believing lies produced by capitalist class, meaning buying their products. Lie = profit. Without lie there is no profit. Profit is when someone buys something for bigger price then it what is value of that thing. When people stops believing lies, capitalists will rule by bureaucracy or military (nazi germany), meaning capitalists will rule by via terror. Your rule by lies or by terror. There is no other way. Of course, someone will always rule.

          3. Chia Cha

            Yes sometime bureaucracy will use propaganda about communism, when their goal is to eliminate existing capitalist class to take their positions and become new capitalists. Let s look Venezuela for instance, there we have ruling capitalist class, using soc. as propaganda to not protect them self capitalists supported by USA. Soc. is there propagated via their bureaucratic caste, while their bureaucrats are under constant open control by military caste, while military is under hidden control of their capitalists 😀 , they use Rule of capitalists must hidden for capitalists to rule.

            Sorry Edit*

Rule of capitalists must be hidden for capitalists to rule, meaning they must rule by lies, otherwise we do not have capitalism any more (rule of lies) but rule of terror, which is by defintion then open rule :)…

    2. That Robert David Steele Vivas guy seems like someone Pres. Donald John Trump needs in his White House.

      1. Fivi Zogbi

        I don’t know why; it’s just a gut thing, an inexplicable reaction, but there’s something about the Robert David Steele guy that gives me an uneasy feeling. I admit, though, I have nothing to base that feeling on. Maybe you’ve followed his career path and know his track record, while I rely on simply perceptions.

        I try to avoid being a fan of anything or anyone. Habits are often routines that have little or no logic but this site is becoming a habit because it is so logical. It is not just your comments, Dr. Pieczenik, but I find the large majority of your readers who leave comments also add value and insights.

        I cannot speak for others, but I am, for the first time in my life, fearful of the future and the unknown. I suppose I’m searching for the lighthouse in a brewing storm that may guide us all to smooth waters.

        Thank you for taking the time to inform us. Please continue to write your columns that also generate valued reader comments. I’ll try to keep mine to a minimum. 🙂

        1. Ill admit I’m relying more on perception than anything solid. He seems to have a solid resume with some good ideas, but more than that he seems to be something of the type of person that would make a political watchdog for the President; someone to protect from intrigue, unlike what seems to be the case with some other persons.
          That being said: “This is what the LORD says: Cursed is the person who trusts humans, who makes flesh and blood his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD.” Jer 17:5

        2. Michael Radney

          @Fivi – I get the very same gut reaction. Not to disqualify the man, but there’s something there he isn’t wanting revealed.

      2. Furtive

        He has made many attempts to contact Trump through Bannon, Trump himself & his kids, Pence, Priebus.

        He even showed up at Trump tower.
        He has a wriiten step plan to drain the swamp.

        To date, no luck in reaching him.

  2. Embrey

    Interesting write up Dr. P. Specifically, what qualifies Sheldon Adelson as a casino mobster? If it is casino ownership would you then conclude that Steve Wynn is also a casino mobster? If that is also true then should we say that Trump mixes with casino mobsters just like Bolton?
    I would like a bit more substance to your allegations. Otherwise, you are simply asking me to take your word on what appears to be your opinion.
    Are you attempting to inform your audience or shepherd the people you want into powerful positions in the administration?

    1. Chia Cha

      Difference is that Adelson is politically active mobster. He is guilty even by actual laws.

  3. Loran

    Hi Dr. Pieczenik
    What do you think about the qualifications of General Robert “Abe” Abrams as National Security Advisor now that Harward has declined the appointment? Thanks
    Loran

  4. Joseph Chiara

    I sent this abbreviated (2500 characters or less required) version to POTUS at WH email for whatever that is worth. I also sent my own comments against Bolton, for McMaster to the same yesterday. Thank you. I can’t quite understand why this loony, very tained fool, chicken hawk is kept in play.

  5. UN Watch

    Steve,
    Please comment on death of Russia’s UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin’s death. Follows very recent cluster of Russian crashes, accidents and ‘heart attack deaths’
    Churkin one of top world diplomats. Loudly renounced ISIS, supported Assad and was meant to serve as key figure in bettering relations w/ US under Trump. His poisoning is major provocation (which wont be answered) and makes WW3 much more likely. In an event little heeded outside UN circles, this could be a game changer. Churkin the lone bulwark against NATO and western rogue actions and wars there. Can you comment? Seems deep state is winning. Urgent.

    1. Steve Osborne

      Good question. I would also like to read Steve’s comments on that.
