JOHN BOLTON



John Robert Bolton (born November 20, 1948) is an American diplomat and attorney, who is currently the National Security Advisor-designate of the United States. He is expected to begin his tenure as National Security Advisor on April 9, 2018.

A devout right winger ( so bad he doesn’t make left turns in his car)  nationalist and conservative,  ( TRANSLATION:   WARMONGER AND RIGHT WINGER NUTCASE By MANY THINKERS)  Bolton served as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations from August 2005 until December 2006 as a recess appointee by President George W. Bush.  he didn’t last long, it was his mouth that got him in trouble.

He resigned in December 2006, when the recess appointment would have otherwise ended, because he was unlikely to win confirmation from the Senate in which a newly elected Democratic Party majority would be taking control in January 2007.  

INSIDER:   He was also considered fairly dangerous and not well liked. only liked on FOX faux news as an agitator.

On March 22, 2018, President Donald Trump announced his appointment as National Security Advisor, to take office on April 9, 2018.  LORD HELP US

It's no small irony that the same week in which ultra-hawk John Bolton finally rose to a position of power at the White House also marked the 15th anniversary of the disastrous war he helped birth.

Bolton, a veteran “swamp” creature who held several national security posts in both Bush administrations, is poised to replace H.R. McMaster as national security adviser in early April. McMaster’s departure and Bolton’s appointment were both expected after weeks of White House whispers, but their tweeted confirmation on Thursday still set alarm bells ringing across the capital.

There are few more notorious hard-liners in Washington than Bolton, a 69-year-old former diplomat known for being profoundly undiplomatic. He shares President Trump’s scorn for multilateralism, and his loathing for the United Nations (where Bolton served a brief stint as U.S. ambassador) is matched by his contempt for the European Union. He sees both institutions as forums for ponderous deliberations that undermine American sovereignty and impede Washington's ability to act decisively.

Bolton’s geopolitical impatience matches his rumored professional demeanor: Allegations of bullying and abuse trail his conduct in office. In 2005 congressional testimony, he was famously described as a “kick-down, kiss-up” manager by a State Department colleague. That insight derailed his chances of permanently securing the U.N. post (he was later chosen by recess appointment). But under Trump, Bolton’s bellicosity has catapulted him into the most important foreign policy position in the White House.

CONNECTIONS AND DANGEROUS CONFLICT ASSOCIATIONS
Bolton is currently a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), a right-wing stink tank.  A senior advisor for Freedom Capital Investment Management, another cesspool,  a Fox News Channel commentator, AKA popular scumbag, and of counsel to the Washington, DC law firm Kirkland & Ellis.

He was a foreign policy adviser to 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney.who dumped him.  Bolton is also involved with a number of politically conservative think tanks, policy institutes and special interest scumbag groups, including:

The Institute of East-West Dynamics,  The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom,  Project for the New American Century, another money stink tank,

The National Rifle Association, Self explanatory.

The Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA)
JINSA’s advisory board includes former United States Senators Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Rudy Boschwitz (R-MN), General James T. Conway, and Chief William J. McSweeney of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department,.   

Also involved were Vice President Dick Cheney,  John Bolton, and former Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith JINSA is a non-partisan organization welcoming advisors from both major political parties as long as Israel National Defense is the cornerstone. Anything Cheney was involved with was dubious.

The Committee for Peace and Security in the Gulf,  The Council for National Policy,  

The Gatestone Institute,  where he serves as the organization Chairman.
The Gatestone Institute (formerly Stonegate Institute and Hudson New York) is a right-wing think tank that publishes articles, particularly pertaining to Islam and the Middle East. The organization has attracted attention for publishing false articles.

Gatestone was founded in 2012 by Nina Rosenwald, who serves as its president. Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John R. Bolton is its chairman.  The institute was founded in 2008 under the name "Hudson Institute New York.  In early 2012 it was briefly renamed Stonegate Institute, before becoming Gatestone Institute in March 2012.

The Gatestone Institute's personnel includes John R. Bolton (Chairman), former US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nina Rosenwald (President), and Naomi H. Perlman.  Amir Taheri is the Chairman of Gatestone Europe.

The organization describes itself as a "non-partisan, not-for-profit international policy council and think tank is dedicated to educating the public about what the mainstream media fails to report.  The organization believes that traditional news outlets conduct insufficient and, as a result, misleading reporting on critical issues, and thus it distributes its own information about events in the Middle East and Muslim populations in other parts of the world.

Allegations of anti-Muslim bias
Gatestone has been criticized for affiliating itself with Geert Wilders, who says that he “ ates Islam" and has been described as "anti-Muslim".  In 2012, Gatestone Institute hosted a talk by Wilders. In 2016, Gatestone paid for Wilders’s flights and hotels on trips to the United States.  The Guardian noted that Gatestone publishes the writings of Geert Wilders.

Policy analyst J. Dana Stuster of the National Security Network, writing in The Hill, criticized Gatestone as "paranoid" for claiming that immigration to Europe was “civilization jihad” and a “Muslim invasion”.

Gatestone's founder, Nina Rosenwald, has been accused of anti-Muslim bias by the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Muslim writers for the Gatestone Institute have defended the organization and Rosenwald against the claims by CAIR.

Zuhdi Jasser, founder and president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, said, "It goes without saying, but to those who may not know Nina, and having known her now for many years, it is clear to me that she has the highest respect for Muslims who love their faith, love God, and take seriously our Islamic responsibility to defeat the global jihad and its Islamist inspiration."

Inaccurate reporting
In 2011 and 2012, Gatestone published articles claiming that Europe had Muslim “ o-go zones", describing them variously as "off-limits to non-Muslim and "microstates governed by Islamic Sharia law".

The claim that there are areas in European cities governed by Sharia is false, although many of the areas deemed as "no-go zones" have high levels of unemployment and crime.  Gatestone's claims were picked up by many outlets, including FrontPageMag, and Washington Times.  The idea of no-go zones originated from Daniel Pipes, who later retracted his claims. 

On November 18, 2016, Gatestone published an article that said the British Press had been ordered to avoid reporting the Muslim identity of terrorists by the European Union. 

Snopes rated the claim "false". Snopes pointed out that the report only made a recommendation and it was issued by the Council of Europe, not the European Union.  Gatestone subsequently corrected the article and apologized for the error,[25] before removing it entirely from its website.

The Gatestone Institute published false articles during the German federal election of 2017.   A Gatestone article, shared thousands of times on social media, including by senior German far-right politicians, claimed that vacant homes were being seized in Germany to provide housing solutions for "hundreds of thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East."

The German fact-checker Correctiv.org found that this was false; a single house was placed in temporary trusteeship, and had nothing to do with refugees whatsoever.  Gatestone also cross-posted a Daily Mail article, which "grossly mischaracterized crime data" concerning crime by refugees in Germany.

Bolton has been called a “ War hawk" and is an advocate for regime change in Iran and North Korea and has repeatedly called for the termination of the Iran deal.  He was a supporter of the Iraq War and continues to support his decision.  He has continuously supported military action and regime change in Syria, Libya, and Iran.
