Who Knew John Bolton Was A 'Tool' For The Radical Left And Deep State? 28.1.2020 Crooks Liars
It's amazing to see the once-beloved Fox News analyst be trashed so thoroughly by those who cheered on his entire war hawk mentality. And never forget, the Orange Julius hired him to be National Security Advisor. In a blink of an eye, John Bolton has suddenly been transformed from an icon on the right into a liberal, deep state swamp infested enemy of Donald Trump, all for writing about the truth of Trump's "drug deal" against Ukraine. Lou Dobbs, who hasn't met a Trump faux pas, moral or illegal act he didn't love, cherish, defend and worship -- just can't handle the truth. After attacking Mitt Romney and drawing a weird conspiracy around the former Republican candidate for president and Bolton, Dobbs said, "John Bolton himself has been reduced to a tool for the radical Dims and the deep state with his, well, with his allegation that the president once told him the aid to Ukraine was entirely dependent on whether or not Mr. Zelensky carried out investigations of his political opponents." After the ...

Pompeo Needs To Testify Under Oath Because Lying To The Media Isn't A Crime 28.1.2020 Crooks Liars
The story of Mike Pompeo's interview with Mary Louise Kelly from NPR and his subsequent response calling her a liar came out while I was reading Catch and Kill and watching Bombshell. Those stories showed the multiple ways the powerful hide their lies and crimes. The good news is that both those stories give us a model to use to stop them. I've watched several Pompeo interviews and they show a man who isn't skilled in talking to the media so he resorts to insults and intimidation.  I've seen this attitude many times before, almost always from men. They think "media training" means figuring out how to train the media to do what they ...
