    Trump's national security advisor, Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, is resigning and be replaced by John R. Bolton, another Fox News guy. Bolton is characterized as a hard-line former United States ambassador to the United Nations. New York Times reporting.

    Trump's getting his dream team of sycophants and bullies. However, it just became more stupid.

    John Bolton was only ambassador to the United Nations under George Bush because Bush made him a recess appointment when his fellow Republicans considered him unsuitable for the post.

    As per Wikipedia, Bolton is currently a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a senior advisor for Freedom Capital Investment Management, a Fox News commentator, and counsel to the Washington, D.C. law firm Kirkland and Ellis. He has been involved with the Institute of East-West Dynamics, the NRA, the U.S, Commission on International Religious Freedom, the Project for a New American Century, the Jewish Institute for National Security of America, the Committee for Peace and Security in the Gulf, the Council for National Policy, and the Gatestone Institute where he serves as Chairman.

    For those familiar with these organizations, you cannot get much further right. If anyone in Trump's organization makes the case for war with either Iran or North Korea, it will be John Bolton. This guy is absolutely dangerous.

    The Iran Nuclear deal will be the first thing they will scuttle.

    I could use some four letter expletives to describe my opinion of John Bolton but will just leave it at that.

    I agree entirely.

    It's as if they filming a low budget situation comedy and trying to reach new levels of absurd.

    If this guy gets what he has talked about in the past, the US is likely to be invading and\or bombing NK and Iran.

    But, it's really Putin's call. ;)

    True to form, Trump ALWAYS picks the least qualified people. Now that John Dowd has "resigned", the circus will get even crazier.

    I wrote a lot about that this country is going down the drain; you guys need more proof?

    Better buy some more guns and built your underground bunker; the third world war is closer than you think; especially if you elect total idiots in your government. Congratulations America!!

    Yes I hope that too! However if the Russians "meddle" and Facebook stays asleep; may be a "little result" but not enough to sway things around. If Pence would replace Trump, then I fear he will continue on the same path with the same idiots, as long as they are super "religious" Thus I've not got too much hope, that things will get "normal" soon.

    They are finally fixing my hurricane damaged roof (cost me a fortune) and then I likely will be out of here as soon as the house sells.

    First time I saw Bolton I thought that is a deviant guy absent any conscious with a secret agenda. Chosen .

    Oddly enough, you mentioned something I was going to begin a thread about, social media, facebook, twitter, and maybe a couple of others.

    You know, I watched a clip of Rossen Reports a few days ago about social media, and how really stupid people are when it came to posting details about their family. Facebook was called out recently and in 2011 for doing what they promised to do, which was to take action concerning people's privacy, since 2011, they have done nothing. People's privacy is still being used improperly.

    Pence replacing trump would be bad, but if we had democrats controlling the house and senate, we might have a chance to stall the republican and evangelical agenda.

    I am going to call this one right now: trump fires Bolton within 6 months.

    - Bolton is a Neocon hardliner that wants war.
    - Bolton will not modify his political views to appease trump.
    - Bolton won't be a "Yes" man to trump.

    If Bolton last longer than 6 months it is because trump is willing to adopt of Bolton's stance: We're going to war before the mid-terms

    In general, Trump appears to have hired Bolton because he likes how confrontational Bolton has been on Fox news, but Bolton is not a Jeff Sessons, Ted Cruz, or Devin Nunes, who drop their own policies and ethics in favor of trump's choas and not ethics.

    Wherever there is a "no Trump"; either France or Spain.
