(Perhaps this is a new meaning for "jingo")
The rumor is widespread that DJT is seriously thinking of making Ambassador (recess appointment) John Bolton his National Security Adviser if LTG HR McMaster departs the job. I am no longer a great admirer of McMaster, someone who is suffering Russia and Iran Derangement Syndrome (RIDS), but Bolton? Bolton? My god! Not Bolton!
At one time I had the chore given to me of visiting the State Department from DIA to explain various events. In the round table discussions at Foggy Bottom John Bolton seemed ever present. He was a brooding, glowering, presence seemingly filled with free floating hostility towards alien populations in the lands of the Saracens. We had a few snarling exchanges.
Tucker Carlson and Lou Dobbs are bêtes noires of the neo-marxist left in the US. Their evening commentary shows on Fox TV routinely excoriate the Democrats. They are usually rather friendly to Bolton who is a paid personality on Fox television. In the two interviews linked they tear Bolton apart.
We should contemplate a future in which Mattis (the Iran hating adult), Pompeo, the mechanical engineer type, Bolton the jingo and the torturer lady may be a big part of the national security team.
