Obvious maladies: prepublication reviews and Trumpís Bolton problem : Comments

By Binoy Kampmark, published 23/6/2020

It was another atrocious week for US President Donald Trump, whose efforts to prevent the publication of his former national security adviser's memoir seemed more than a touch childish.

Thanks Binoy,

Don't we all love a circus ?! Maybe not all of us .....

Some more exciting news from the new Barnum & Bailey's:

http://forum.onlineopinion.com.au/thread.asp?discussion=9191

Trumpf must surely be the most misunderstood and mistreated president in US history, maybe in all of world history. Treated worse than Kennedy, Lincoln, Richard III, Julius Caesar (but who knows yet ?), Mithradates, and all of those kings in the Old Testament who were captured, skinned and hung from trees, like the king of Aa.

And every day brings new surprises :). Wouldn't be dead for quids !

Over the last few decades in theology if you wanted to deny truth, twist Scripture or promote perversion instead of looking for a true believer to defend/argue the truth you would employ a 'scholar'. Often the term 'scholar' is a cover for heretic. You find them many in religious departments of national broadcasters and theological colleges. Same seems to have happened with politics. Scholar is suppose to be a specialist, not someone blinded by their own failed narratives. Binoy's TDS on display yet again.

Trump only has a Bolton problem among those who choose to believe Bolton's fairy-tales.

And those people would never be Trump supporters anyhow...thus no problem for Trump.

Hi Binoy

Fact Check.

Many of the claims made by Bolton are said to be false ... by many people who were in the room. Notable is Mike Pompeo, the Secretary of State, who said 'in many matters and discussions Bolton was deliberately excluded because he leaked, twisted things and did things contrary to the administrations objectives.'

A white ant.

Many of Boltons past claims congratulating Trump's great foreign policy success are contradicted by Bolton, in his book, where many of his current claims disparage Trump's foreign policy successes.
Take your pick, but Bolton is contradicting himself.

Inconsistant.

Not all discussions have been claimed to be classified. What is classified is any material that would expose US Agencies methods and expose contacts. That might not necessarily mean naming names or processes but discussion of the basis on which decisions were made might inadvertently reveal those methods or contacts.
Bolton would know that.

A possible security risk.

It will be the Department of Justice, Bill Barr, who will determine if Bolton broke the law in relation to classified material.
it won't be Trump or an Archieve analyst like Kornbluh, nor as you suggest the CIA.

While the Department of Justice failed to stop the publication of Bolton's book, it can still prosecute and, in my opinion, likely succeed in prosecuting Bolton for breaching the relevant laws.

Boltons focus or Hong Kong was, in the grander scheme of relations with china, meddling in China's internal affairs. Worthy of rebuke .. but a twitter campaign? really?

Only anti Trumpers sees Trump as 'a Star Struck lover of authoritarianism'.

Every President , in their first term, 'has an eye on' re-election. In this regard rump however has focused on filfiulling his previous election promises
.
Please quote circumstances, with evidence, where Trump corruptly sundered the Office of President.
While it is not your claim, you have repeated that claim without proof. ie. repeated it as an unsupported aspersion. Ok but you did not say that it was such.

You as an academic should know better, and I think you do.

Slippery Binoy...

yep those with TDS will always make up their own truth to be the 'truth' they still want it to be. CNN spent 3 years lying about Russian collusion followed by Ukraine collusion. Now they blame the virus on China on him. Really being on the democrat side requires having a badge of lying consistently.

Bolton is more than likely one of the first Dominos & as such the rest can't afford to let him topple for obvious reasons !
