Rumor. John Bolton to Be Named Secretary of State

Monday, November 14, 2016 13:57
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is thin, but it fits into everything that is being said about filling the Secretary of State position.

Source says John Bolton is close to being named Secretary of State, Corker still a remote possibility, Gingrich is out

Bolton would be an inspired choice both in terms of the temperament needed to turn around a fat, flailing and failing State Department that is more interested in being liked by the right people than in pursuing the nation’s interests and in the message it sends.

State is a byzantine organization with its own personnel regulations and it has traditionally operated as though it was the sole adult in the room and the president, especially when the president was a Republican, was an unruly child. Bolton has caused the Iranians and North Koreans to complain about him in the past and the Democrats filibustered his appointment as UN ambassador. His nomination would be a sign that Trump is serious about foreign policy and that he’s not afraid to make enemies of the right people.

    John Bolton would be an excellent choice by the Donald. He needs to make independent decisions. It seems all the pundits want to issue warnings and threats of “the sky is falling”. As if they know better. Haven’t they already demonstrated their skills? Can’t wait till Jan 20 to see the same people suck up!

    Very bad move. Bolton is a NWO globalist.
