    Trump fires National Security Advisor John Bolton over disagreements on key policy matters

    Bolton's removal comes after he was reportedly sidelined from high-level discussions about military involvement in Afghanistan. The Washington Post reported that Bolton was not invited to a high-profile meeting after opposing diplomatic efforts in the region. The Post reported that his opposition bothered Trump.

    “Simply put, many of Bolton’s policy priorities did not align with POTUS,” a White House official told Fox News on Tuesday.

    No surprise, Trump is not happy with the money it takes to stay in Afganland when they continue to just shamelessly rip us off. We know what the Taliban game is, do we really give a shit if they run a fecally contaminated shit hole? It's not like we couldn't bomb the **** out of anything we didn't like with no boots on the ground. The bottom line for me is that they just aren't worth our blood and money.

    I was astonished that Trump ever picked him in the first place, Bolton is a super-hawk. I'm glad to see Bolton going bye-bye, and I'm relieved that he did not somehow finagle us into another useless war (you just KNOW Bolton was pushing for war with Iran), wasting blood and minds of our service members.

    So how long before Bolton is working as a TDS analyst for CNN and trashing Trump a la Mr. Scaradouche. CNN probably on the phone with him right now knowing those scumbags. Any chance they can get dirt on Trump CNN will hire that person.

    1. Wasn't a fan of hiring him in the first place.
    2. Sort of don't get the white house response that they fired him cause he didn't agree with Trump. I mean, sure you want people that you can work with, but what good is a staff if everyone simply agrees with you. You do want some opinions in the room.

    Then again, who knows how bad the disagreements were.

    Trump is pretty much fearless in trying people out and just as quick to show them the door if it doesn't work out. The MSM simply doesn't understand that you have to make it on the merits and your name or past accomplishments mean dick.

    Good.

    Bye!

    Bolton is a blow-hard with a record full of failures.

    Me and you agree on a lot, actually.

    But where we disagree, we very much disagree.

    Bolton has always been a hawk. Trump wants to give peace a chance. Difference between Trump and a Dem is that when he gives peace a chance and you screw him, he will come kill you.

    Cheers, well said.

    Strong leadership: Give (a group/someone) enough rope to pull themselves up to your established organization and safety, or which they can hang themselves with. Test for loyalty. Fire defectors and trouble makers. Expose and seek retribution publically from trouble makers.

    Notice a similarity to the animal kingdom:

    Alpha Animals: fight to the death and attain dominance. display dominance, seek normalcy until preyed upon. Kill or badly injure active threats. Work collectively with a Wolfpack or family to create a safer circle.

    Leadership of leaders: Hire qualified professionals and expect them to do their jobs. If they do not, get rid of them quickly. It is better to feel temporary pain rather than be tied to a continual failure that harms the whole. Anyone who does not subscribe to this position should not lead leaders.

    I’ve mentioned before, my daughter works in a high capacity within the administration...the country CONTINUES to be in VERY GOOD hands...

    Just another example of bringing someone in, due to their experience, reputation, and to receive their viewpoint. However, possessing the brass balls to make a move once necessary, for the best of the country when needed, without letting them see you sweat.

    I’m not allowed to know everything, but what I do know, I can assure you...we are in the BEST hands possible, and MUST make sure it remains that way.

    All I can share.
