Deep State Fixture John Bolton Casually Admits To Plotting Foreign Coups To CNN’s Jake Tapper

This week the January 6th Committee spent a fair amount of time attempting to prove former President Trump’s guilt in planning a “coup d’etat” by linking his actions to those taken by far-right-wing groups.

Not one to turn down an opportunity to hear the sound of his voice, famed war hawk and career Deep Stater John Bolton sat with CNN’s Jake Tapper to provide his “expert” opinion on if the committee has proven President Trump attempted a coup. 

While criticizing President Trump’s actions leading up to and on January 6th, Mr. Bolton explained that he didn’t believe he planned a coup because, to summarize, it’s super hard to do that. The former President isn’t smart enough.

And apparently, Mr. Bolton would know since it takes someone with real smarts and experience in the dark arts, like him, to orchestrate a coup d’etat. 

Did He Say That Out Loud?

It all started with Mr. Bolton stating the following:

“None of it is defensible. It’s also a mistake, as some people have said including on the committee, the commentators, that somehow this was a carefully planned coup d’etat aimed at the Constitution.”

Mr. Tapper wasn’t going to be OK with that statement and, with his vast knowledge of coups, countered with:

“One doesn’t have to be brilliant to attempt a coup.”

Insert Mr. Bolton casually announcing on television that he’s basically a coup mastermind:

“I disagree with that. As somebody who has helped plan coups d’etat – not here, but other places – it takes a lot of work. And that’s not what he did. It was just stumbling around from one idea to another.”

…. 

I guess we are just saying these things out loud now without regard for international law.

Bolton Longs For The Good Old Days

For my readers who aren’t familiar with what a coup is, it’s the attempt to overthrow a government illegally – often times done by one country to another through clandestine means. Some think all coups are military in nature, but they don’t have to be. 

So the fact that a former long-time major player in U.S. government operations who has held significant roles over the years would just openly admit to participating in coups is odd, to say the least. 

As author Jonathan Katz wrote:

“The United States has indeed sponsored and participated in lots of coups and foreign government overthrows, dating back to the 20th century [and] Bolton was personally involved in many of the recent efforts – in Nicaragua, Iraq, Haiti and others.”

He goes on:

“Generally, officials do not admit that sort of thing on camera.”

That is unless you are Big Bad John Bolton, baby! It’s no secret that Mr. Bolton is a fan of dark operations meant to tip the balance in foreign countries.

He supported regime change in Iraq and said in 2018:

“The declared policy of the United States should be the overthrow of the mullah’s regime in Tehran.”

But my all-time favorite was back in 2007 on NPR. Mr. Bolton said wistfully:

“We once had a capacity for clandestine efforts to overthrow governments. I wish we could get those back.”

Ah yes, the good old days.

Please, Bolton, Tell Us More

When pressed by Mr. Tapper on what coups, in particular, Mr. Bolton had a hand in orchestrating, he took the opportunity to plug his book that speaks about the Venezuelan attempted coup while he was National Security Advisor.

“Not that we had all that much to do with it, but I saw what it took for an opposition to try and overturn an illegally elected president and they failed. The notion that Donald Trump was half as competent as the Venezuelan opposition is laughable.”

Wow, John, please tell us how you really feel about your old boss. Again, not a secret that Mr. Bolton doesn’t think highly of the former President’s intellectual prowess or lack thereof.

He told Newsmax in an interview:

“The fact is that he barely knew where Ukraine was. He once asked John Kelly, his second chief of staff, if Finland were a part of Russia.”

Do We Really Care About Any Of This?

While I found it pretty shocking that someone openly admits to having a hand while serving in government in international coups, I suppose it shouldn’t, given who the person is. But, unfortunately, John Bolton isn’t known for discretion.

He famously flashed notes he had scribbled on a legal pad that said, “Afghanistan –> Welcome the Talks” and “5,000 troops to Columbia”. 

But the real question is, does anybody really care about the January 6th hearings? The latest New York Times/Siena College poll doesn’t bode well for the Democrats.

When asked, “What do you think is the MOST important problem facing the country today?” only 11% said the “state of democracy/political division.” Even more dismal was the 2% that said “Trump/Republicans” are the biggest problem, and 0% said “Domestic Terrorism.”

What made it to the top of the list? The Economy Stupid!, at 20%. And who can blame us with inflation hitting an all-time 40-year high of 9.1%?

Unfortunately, This Won’t Be The Last We Hear From Bolton

I have no doubt Mr. Bolton will find more ways to regale us with his greatness in countless interviews and will always rise to the occasion to bad mouth his prior boss. While he believes Trump was a “disturbance in the force,” which is a weird way to put it, he doesn’t think Trump was the leader of an “attack on our democracy.”

I’m sure Mr. Tapper was bummed with his response. However, Mr. Tapper did try to find out more about the international intrigue that Bolton alluded to, stating:

“I feel like there’s like this other stuff you’re not telling me.”

To which Mr. Bolton very cooly said:

“I’m sure there is.”

Excellent; I can’t wait to hear more from John Bolton.

Read Now: Sen. Tommy Tuberville's brother rebukes his racist sibling on social media – 101 Latest News

Sen. Tommy Tuberville's brother rebukes his racist sibling on social media

#Sen #Tommy #Tuberville039s #brother #rebukes #racist #sibling #social #media

They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, but apples do often roll in radically different directions: some end up in a rich and piquant Bavarian torte and others land in a McDonald’s pie that tastes like moist cardboard and appears destined for the quaggy, cankerous bowels of Donald John Trump. 

Similarly, siblings are often at opposite poles politically—and in numerous other ways. And these differences appear particularly stark when one sibling is a U.S. senator who continues to burnish his racist bona fides under the klieg lights of media scrutiny and the other is, well, not.

Such is the case with Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville and his brother Charles. Charles Tuberville, a Tulsa, Oklahoma-based singer, songwriter, and guitarist who’s played with notables such as B.B. King and Delbert McClinton, has taken note of Tommy’s frequent racist dog-whistling/vituperative vuvuzela-ing and is calling him out over his pig-ignorant comments.

RELATED STORY: Sen. Tuberville makes openly racist remarks on Don Jr.’s web show

AL.com:

The brother of U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville is speaking out on social media, saying he is “compelled to distance” himself from some of the lawmaker’s recent statements.

“Due to recent statements by him promoting racial stereotypes, white nationalism and other various controversial topics, I feel compelled to distance myself from his ignorant, hateful rants,” Charles Tuberville stated in a Facebook post.

“What I’m trying to say is that, I DO NOT agree with any of the vile rhetoric coming out of his mouth. Please don’t confuse my brother with me. Thanks, Charles Tuberville.”

Okay, so brothers often fight. That’s typical—and not really a big deal. And how bad can Sen. Tuberville’s public comments really be, huh? Well, we’ve researched this, and we now have an answer—and that answer is, “pretty fucking bad.”

For instance, in an interview last week on Donald Trump Jr.’s streaming show “Triggered,” Tuberville wondered aloud if teachers in the inner cities can even read. Because, you know, some sitting U.S. senators can barely read, and look how much they get paid for doing essentially nothing.

“The COVID really brought it out about how bad our schools are and how bad our teachers are, in the inner city. Most of them in the inner city, I don’t know how they got degrees,” Tuberville said. “I don’t know whether they can read and write. … And they want a raise. They want less time to work, less time in school. It’s just, we’ve ruined work ethic in this country. We don’t work at it anymore. We push an easy life.”

Yeah, imagine a country where a football coach who doesn’t know what the three branches of government are can just plop his ignorant ass into a U.S. Senate seat because he was endorsed by a shitty reality show host who spends the bulk of his morning tweeting obscenities on the toilet. That’s an education crisis of Brobdingnagian proportions. Also, if you’re trying to make a point about pervasive failures in our education system, maybe don’t start sentences with “The COVID.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time Tuberville has worn his racism on his sleeve. For instance, earlier this month, when asked if white nationalists should be allowed to serve in the military, he said, in reference to the Biden administration, “They call them that. I call them Americans.”

He then went on to elaborate, because why stop when you’re on a roll? “We are losing in the military so fast. Our readiness in terms of recruitment. And why? I’ll tell you why, because the Democrats are attacking our military, saying we need to get out the white extremists, the white nationalists, people that don’t believe in our agenda, as Joe Biden’s agenda. They’re destroying it.”

Yeah, I don’t know about you, but I really doubt that white nationalism makes our military stronger. How’s Vladimir Putin’s anti-woke army doing these days? 

And last October, in the run-up to the midterm elections, Tuberville had this to say of slavery reparations: “They’re not soft on crime,” Tuberville said in reference to Democrats. “They’re pro-crime. They want crime. They want crime because they want to take over what you got. They want to control what you have. They want reparation because they think the people that do the crime are owed that.”

Whoopsie. Looks like Tommy forgot his racist dogwhistle and was forced to trot out his Aryan airhorn. 

Many of us can sympathize with Charles, of course. Too many of us struggle to cope when family members—ignoring a coup attempt, bushels full of racism, overt mafia tactics, and literal calls to suspend the Constitution—go gaga each year over the return of their pumpkin-spiced Gotti

But imagine if your name were dragged through the mud on a daily basis like Charles’ is. You’d want to speak up, too. Thanks for letting us know what a shitheel your brother is, Charles. We get it. Oh, do we ever. But it’s nice to know not everyone in the Tuberville clan is quite as Klannish as Tommy.

Karen Ocasio-Cortez: AOC Fumes Over Parody Account, Is Immediately Mocked

#Karen #OcasioCortez #AOC #Fumes #Parody #Account #Immediately #Mocked

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) felt the need to have a meltdown over a Twitter feed serving as a parody account of the congresswoman. Despite the fact that it is clearly labeled “parody,” the far-left socialist demanded action be taken.

She tweeted about the account on Tuesday, advising her followers that the policy statements released by the parody account are “false” and that she and her crack staff of cybersleuths are “assessing” how to move forward.

“FYI there’s a fake account on here impersonating me and going viral. The Twitter CEO has engaged it, boosting visibility,” she claimed. “It is releasing false policy statements and gaining spread.”

“I am assessing with my team how to move forward. In the meantime, be careful of what you see.”

The only thing missing from AOC’s statement is the word ‘Ackchyually’ and an admission that her real name is Karen. It’s also worth noting that the only reason she’d feel compelled to tell followers about a parody account they probably hadn’t heard of prior to this is because the parody looks an awful lot like reality.

AOC Mocked For Calling Out Parody Account

The parody account operating in such stealth that AOC felt the need to warn her followers has the following handle: “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Press Release (parody).”

The account also has a short bio: “Saying the quiet part out loud. (parody).”

It has a blue check which indicates they are a subscriber, while AOC’s actual Twitter profile has a gray checkmark which indicates it is a verified government account.

Aside from labeling itself a “parody” twice and having different checkmarks, how is the average Ocasio-Cortez fan supposed to tell the difference? It’s a mystery …

AOC was mocked mercilessly by Twitter users who posted their own version of her tweet calling out the parody account.

Others pointed out that, being clearly labeled a ‘parody’ account, the AOC imposter is not violating Twitter’s terms of service and there isn’t much the devout socialist can do about it.

And others noted that maybe the problem isn’t the parody account itself, maybe it’s the congresswoman who constantly sounds like a parody.

But perhaps the best digs came from the parody account itself, as they continued to pummel her with comical tweets.

“I can’t believe people would think these parody tweets are from our office when they are clearly fake,” they wrote. “Come on y’all you know I would never say something as stupid as that.”

“FYI … I have no problem with parody accounts – just the ones that make fun of me,” they also tweeted.

Elon Musk Engaged

AOC’s rage over Elon Musk engaging with the parody account stems from a tweet on Monday in which they parodied the fake romance between her and the Twitter chief.

This might be the wine talking, but I’ve got a crush on @elonmusk,” they wrote.

Musk replied with a fire emoji.

That fire emoji tweet from Musk earned 1.8 million views. AOC calling out the parody account thus far has 29.6 million views.

Ironically, she did more to amplify the account than Musk did. By far. It’s the Streisand Effect.

Elon Musk and Ocasio-Cortez have been engaged in a Twitter spat for some time. It’s been a classic story of a cat and mouse romance – she, an impressionable former bartender with the intellectual heft of a pre-teen, he a shy billionaire.

AOC even sent a playful public message to Musk suggesting he had censored her on Twitter, all while dining on some lip-smacking good chicken nuggets.

Oh, that sultry vixen.

Musk has been ever the gentleman, even suggesting the couple go Dutch on their social media dates.

The parody account added another tweet which was semi-believable making it quite an effective piece of work.

“After brainstorming with my staff – I’m going to push Congress to make it illegal to joke, laugh, or make fun of me,” they wrote. “Parody should be illegal.”

Sounds real, doesn’t it?
