    Wow you have to be pretty horrible to make John Bolton flinch. Could Bolton be the whistleblower?

    NBCNews
    confirms that Fiona Hill told Congress today that Bolton told her he wanted no part of Giuliani's "drug deal," and referred to Giuliani as a "hand grenade."
    @nytimes first reported this shortly ago
    While I don't think that Bolton is the actual whistleblower, it did cross my mind that some of the what we know about the whistleblower seemingly comes from what was Bolton's corner of things and that Bolton said something along the lines of that we would "Be Hearing From Him..."

    Fort Worth Officer Charged With Murder In Killing Of Atatiana Jefferson In Her Home

    Officer Aaron Dean was arrested after he fatally shot the 28-year-old Black woman who was inside her own house. He was later released from jail. That ratfuck should've been left in the lockup.

    LeBron James Says Daryl Morey Wasn’t ‘Educated’ About Hong Kong And China

    The Lakers forward shared his thoughts on the Houston Rockets general manager’s tweet in support of anti-government protesters in Hong Kong. Short and sweet: just like the rest of the cowardly NBA which knuckled under to Beijing, this was all about Lebron putting his bank account first because Chinese NBA fans buy his jerseys and shoes.

    Brooke Baldwin To Trump: Why Is It Taking You So Long To Condemn That Video?

    The CNN anchor said the president tweets “all the time,” but not about a video of a fake Trump murdering critics and the media. Hmm! I wonder about that too. Yo, Donnie! Step up, homie!

    LeBron James undermines values with comments on Daryl Morey and China

    On behalf of the 327 million American citizens who generally believe that freedom is good and authoritarian regimes are less good, let me apologize to LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers.

    It must have been a real inconvenience to take that 13-hour chartered flight to China last week and hang around a luxury hotel in Shanghai for five days while promotional appearances got cancelled. Surely it was awful to be in the middle of an international firestorm where the stakes were so high: Would preseason NBA games be played or not?

    And to think, LeBron and his teammates were so disrupted all because Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey had the temerity to send a relatively anodyne tweet supporting a protest that pretty much every one of his countrymen — whether on the left or right side of the political spectrum — would agree with over the rights Hong Kongers were promised when the United Kingdom handed control of the territory over to China in 1997.
    Because as James tweeted on Monday night, trying to clarify comments he made to the media earlier in the evening: “My team and this league just went through a difficult week. I think people need to understand what a tweet or statement can do to others. And I believe nobody stopped and considered what would happen. Could have waited a week to send it.”

    Right on, LeBron. Millions in Hong Kong are fearful that their entire way of life is about to change, and thousands upon thousands of protestors are risking their lives to make a stand for their freedom and their future. Why would Morey think about them when your preseason vacation and your bank account is at stake? How selfish of him.

    If only Morey had done what you did Monday, LeBron, and tacitly admit that the only thing that really matters is your ability to sell shoes and market "Space Jam 2" in a country of 1.4 billion, we could have had an intellectually honest discussion about doing business in China and the cost of free speech in a country where only propaganda is tolerated.

    So unless LeBron takes the side everybody wants him to take on an issue he almost certainly doesn't know or care much about, he's undermining American values, yet it's the Chinese that are the brainwashed hivemind? Hong Kong has always been an island where unregulated capitalism has run amok, and these protests are nothing more than the privileged few fighting to protect their privileges, regardless of whatever flowery talk they may spew about freedom or democracy. Obviously the left and right are united on this issue because it goes against the interests of a geopolitical adversary, but this won't turn out any better than the Arab Spring, Ukraine, or Venezuela, and egging on the protesters with uncritical support from a safe distance is just irresponsible.

    Bolton is going nuclear today.

    He has a short attention span and doesn't read any long documents. Even if he was briefed on it he may not have been paying attention.

Why have someone who will lie to you 98% of the time when you can get someone who'll lie to you 100% of the time?

    Remember when people thought that getting rid of Bolton might have actually been one of Trump's unicorn-like good decisions?

    Bolton is a horrible human and mad on foriegn policy. But he's not a traitor like many in Trump's circle.
