John Bolton is an extremist. Or, at least he was. The man’s policy preferences had him painted into a corner by the Democrat/media paintbrush. But has he magically escaped? Trump doesn’t agree with him, and an enemy of my enemy is, well, you know the deal.
The Democrats and the American media will do anything to bash Trump even if it means embracing John Bolton, whom they hate. Over at the Washington Times, they’ve got an excellent piece of contrasting evidence. A picture of how that looks.
Chris Murphy, Connecticut Democrat. is quoted as saying,
“John Bolton is being picked for the top non-confirmable national security job because a Senate that confirmed DeVos, Zinke, Price, and Pruitt will not confirm Bolton for anything [because] he is too extreme,” the senator tweeted. “Noodle that for a second.”
And the flip!
“I’m legitimately shaken by the grave instability of American foreign policy today,” the senator tweeted after news of Mr. Bolton’s ouster emerged earlier this week. “I’m no Bolton fan, but the world is coming apart, and the revolving door of U.S. leadership is disappearing America from the world just at the moment where a stable American hand is most needed.”
The real ‘Satan,” as anyone familiar with spirituality across human history, is always the great deceiver. The one who appeals to the capital vices. Pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth. The weaker aspects of our nature.
Free stuff, promises of retribution, class envy, and wealth without effort or investment. Power at the expense of those you rule.
For high profile folks like Bolton, the left would offer praise, book deals, appearances, and money. Ans an opportunity to enter the inner circle of their not-so-secret hell. A place where politics meets reality television. A fantasy world inside a bubble that protects you from real people and the real world.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, no fan of Mr. Bolton until roughly five minutes ago, decried his “sudden departure” as a “symbol of the disarray that has unnerved our allies since day one of the Trump Administration.” Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, said that Mr. Bolton’s firing “is just the latest example of his government by-chaos-approach.”
Keep in mind that the departure is a matter of policy difference. Mr. Trump’s position is to disengage from these regions. To avoid starting unnecessary wars. Things Democrats don’t just talk about but say when they run for office.
Bolton is gone because in some small way he agrees with what Democrats claim as the own foreign policy and this is now explained by Democrats as, disarray and evidence of instability.
It is, among Democrats.
And no, I’m not saying Bolten will take the apple from the serpent, just that they’ll keep offering it until he proves himself unable or unwilling to carry their water.
