JOHN BOLTON To Be Pushed by White House: The Games Begin Again


Both sides in favor and opposed to John Bolton being confirmed by the U.S. Senate in this Congressional Session are drawing their battle plans.
TWN and Bolton Watch are big parts of the picture. I have much more to write — and much to recount from a major set of interviews I have done with insiders on John Bolton.
But George Voinovich’s op-ed today blasts the door open — and we are ready. Congrats to Richard Grenell, Bolton’s communications manager — as Rick is the best in the business — for this great theatre today. Someone much better and enlightened about the world needs to hire Rick back to the side of light.
I am hosting and chairing a dinner with former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski tonight — and need to get through that before posting pieces of our next major assaults on the lacking performance of the unconfirmed Ambassador.
More later.
— Steve Clemons

    Acomplia represents one of the latest and indeed a most novel method for controlling body weight. Acomplia operates by being a cannabinoid receptor antagonist. This means that Acomplia prevents the normal action of endogenous cannabinoid in the brain from stimulating the so-called CB1 receptors.

    How can a country the size of Rhode Island control this government? God that makes me so sick.

    Phocion, if Bolton is the best this nation has to offer in representing our best interests in acting as our UN ambassador, heaven help us..I do believe however, he is by far the best this country has to offer in furthering Israel’s interest.

    Both Parties Back Ally, Court Jewish Support
    By Jim VandeHei
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Wednesday, July 19, 2006; Page A05
    Democratic and Republican congressional leaders are rushing to offer unalloyed support for Israel’s offensive against Hezbollah fighters, reflecting a bipartisan desire to not only defend a key U.S. ally but also solidify long-term backing of Jewish voters and political donors in the United States, according to officials and strategists in both parties.
    With Israel intensifying its air and artillery attacks on Lebanon and warning of a protracted war, the Senate yesterday unanimously passed a bipartisan resolution endorsing Israel’s military campaign and condemning Hezbollah and its two backers, Iran and Syria. A few hours earlier, Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) delivered his most strident defense of Israel since the conflict erupted a week ago. The House is expected to pass a similarly pro-Israel resolution today.”
    Let me repeat the obvious;
    ..”reflecting a bipartisan desire to not only defend a key U.S. ally but also solidify long-term backing of Jewish voters and political donors in the United States, according to officials and strategists in both parties.”
    Policies made in Washington concerning War, Death and Resources are NOT being made in the interest of the US,or peace or democracy.
    The fate of american lives and other’s lives are based totally on:
    1)What is good for politicans own personal careers.
    2)The foreign interest or loyalties of a minority.
    3)The agenda of other self interested elements neo masters of the universe community.
    Vote them ALL out. ALL of them, dem and repub alike. I don’t care what their polices are on health care or any other domestic issue. There won’t be anything domestic to worry about if Americans don’t get control of their country and foreign policy back.

    Thank God. Nobody speaks with more command of the material and more clarity of purpose than John Bolton. He’s among the most intelligent and elloquent diplomats in service today. The man has more experience in UN matters than any TWO State officials, and has proven his mettle over and over again. There is not another diplomat in service that could have gotten that North Korean resolution, and we’re clearly going to need him to work similar magic on Iran.
    Bravo, George Voinovich…Bravo!
