John Bolton’s new book makes many things clear, but most important is this: Donald Trump violates his oath to defend our Constitution against “all enemies foreign and domestic” because he is the leading domestic enemy of our Constitution.

Bolton shows that Trump has no regard for our Constitution using example after damning example of disloyal conduct unseen by the public or even White House journalists.

“The Room Where It Happened,” Bolton’s book, shows that Trump routinely commits felonies, wants the “execution” of journalists despite our First Amendment, and tries to rig criminal prosecutions to curry favor with dictators he likes.

Bolton shows that Trump has no regard for our Constitution using example after damning example of disloyal conduct unseen by the public or even White House journalists.

His book confirms key points that I have been warning people about for more than five years: Trump is appallingly ignorant, disloyal, dumb, heartless, possessed of violent desires for revenge and thinks nothing of selling out our country for personal gain.

Consider the scariest anecdote in Bolton’s book, one that has gotten little attention in the mainstream news and no coverage connecting the dots, the awful dots.

Connect them and you realize that, wittingly or not, Trump gave China the green light to forcibly vivisect living people who Beijing regards as enemies of the state. Their organs are then either sold or given to loyal communist party members in need of transplants.

Bolton is himself a moral monster who played a significant role in the gratuitous American invasion of Iraq 17 years ago which has caused at least 208,000 documented deaths and perhaps twice that figure. That Bolton didn’t willingly testify during the impeachment proceedings shows that he cares more about his $2 million advance than his country. Still, Trump surrounds himself with people possessed of deeply flawed character and keeps his distance from decent folk. Just as prosecutors often rely on criminals to catch other criminals, so should we pay heed to Bolton’s revelations.

Trump, predictably, dismisses Bolton as a “disgruntled boring fool” whose book is “made up of lies & fake stories.”

Building More Concentration Camps

Bolton writes that Trump twice encouraged President Xi’s construction of more concentration camps for Uyghurs, the Chinese Muslims who will not abandon their faith and bow down to the communist party. Bolton, who uses a variant spelling of the group’s name, writes:

“On the 30th anniversary of China’s massacre of pro-democracy demonstrators in Tiananmen Square, Trump refused to issue a White House statement. ‘That was 15 years ago,’ he said, inaccurately. ‘Who cares about it? I’m trying to make a deal. I don’t want anything.’ And that was that.

“Beijing’s repression of its Uighur citizens also proceeded apace. Trump asked me at the 2018 White House Christmas dinner why we were considering sanctioning China over its treatment of the Uighurs, a largely Muslim people who live primarily in China’s northwest Xinjiang Province.

“At the opening dinner of the Osaka G-20 meeting in June 2019, with only interpreters present, Xi had explained to Trump why he was basically building concentration camps in Xinjiang. According to our interpreter, Trump said that Xi should go ahead with building the camps, which Trump thought was exactly the right thing to do. The National Security Council’s top Asia staffer, Matthew Pottinger, told me that Trump said something very similar during his November 2017 trip to China.”

What Bolton doesn’t explain, at least in the excerpt I read, is that these are not just concentration camps, holding at least a million people who Beijing persecutes for having a moral conscience. They are horror chambers right of Nazi Josef Mengele’s nightmare concepts of medical practice.

Vivisecting Chinese Dissidents Alive

Chinese concentration camps are also centers for the torture and murder of those Beijing considers enemies of the people—Uighurs and followers of Falun Gong, a spiritual movement that emphasizes truth and compassion and which Beijing condemns as an “evil cult.”

Concentration camp doctors vivisect some believers alive, the China Tribunal in London determined last year after extensive investigation and hearing testimony by, among others, a participating surgeon. The Tribunal concluded that “beyond reasonable doubt” China harvests organs from unwilling people. You can view the film version here.

The deafening silence of American clergy—priests, pastors, rabbis, and even imams—about Beijing’s torture and murder of believers helps explain how Trump, an immoral fake Christian who spouts anti-Christian concepts such as revenge and violence, occupies the White House. Clerical silence on this illuminates the moral collapse of religion in America.

While news reports have not connected the dots, Walter Shaub, the former head of the federal Office of Government Ethics, has.  Shaub tweeted: “China has concentration camps in which an estimated 1 million Uyghurs are being tormented, raped and killed. The sitting President of the United States said this was absolutely the right thing to do. But what’s shocking is that this won’t end his presidency. Welcome to America.”

Trump in all likelihood doesn’t know that people are murdered by having their organs forcefully extracted because he is appallingly ignorant. But Trump is so immoral that even were he to know about the murders of Uyghurs and Falun Gong he’d wave it off as not his concern. Trump would denounce these murders-by-government, Bolton makes clear, only if he believed doing so would win him votes or make the family money.

As for American foreign policy, Trump doesn’t give a damn because all he cares about is what benefits him personally, Bolton writes.

War with China

Serious and long-term consequences flow from Trump’s disloyal and dumb conduct. Years ago, I revealed that China used Wall Street fronts to acquire and remove American rare-earth elements and technology, vital to making everything from smart bombs to cellphones.

Chinese military doctrine holds that war with the United States is inevitable. A new book, The Kill Chain: Defending America in the Future of High-Tech Warfare asserts that America might well lose such a war. Author Christian Brose is a former military adviser to John McCain and former staff director for the Senate Armed Services Committee.

That Trump is an enemy of our Constitution awaiting indictment when he leaves office is revealed in Bolton’s description of how pathetically Trump begged President Xi to help him win a second term. Trump pleaded with Xi for “increases in Chinese farm-product purchases, to help with the crucial farm-state vote.”

There it is, plain and simple. Donald Trump asked the tyrant in Beijing to help him win a second term. It is a felony to accept foreign assistance in an election. The regulation implementing this law is even clearer. “No person shall knowingly solicit, accept, or receive from a foreign national any contribution or donation.” 

Bolton’s Question and Answer

Bolton writes, accurately, that “China moved away from democracy, not toward it. In Xi Jinping, China now has its most powerful leader and its most centralized government since Mao Zedong. Ethnic and religious persecution on a massive scale continues. Meanwhile, China has created a formidable offensive cyberwarfare program, built a blue-water navy for the first time in 500 years, increased its arsenal of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, and more.”

Predictably Bolton, a determined Republican war hawk, asserts that President Obama “basically sat back and let it happen.” But then he damns Trump, writing that Trump actively encouraged the worst of Xi’s oppression.

“The real question is what Trump does about China’s threat,” Bolton writes. The answer is in Bolton’s book and its frightening. Trump doesn’t just sit back and do nothing. Trump eagerly enables Xi’s oppression at home and his planning for a future in which Chinese communists, who kill dissenters, set the world stage.

Donald Trump is broke and his businesses are collapsing — is that why he pushed to re-open the economy?

Published

on

For the past several decades, Donald Trump has been widely regarded as a great big phony. Everything about him is a mirage. He steals credit for the accomplishments of others, especially his predecessor, Barack Obama. His business model is all about slapping his goofy name on properties built by others. Even his outward appearance is a fraud: his unsubstantiated self-confidence, his hair, his clown makeup, his baggy suits designed to hide his doughy frame, even his shoes, which appear to have unusually high heels — it's all intended to make him appear physically more powerful than he actually is. Fake, fake and fake.

Yes, the Reichstag is on fire — but the American people have water to put it out: Will Bunch

Part of a life well-lived, I’ve come to realize, is hanging on to an old quote from a mentor or family member that over time has taken on much deeper meaning than when it was uttered to you as a clueless 16-year-old. For me, it’s the oxymoron that my high school football coach, Rob Pickert, used to teach how a defensive end must rush a quarterback — “with reckless abandon, but under control.” Over the next 45 years I’d see that’s the right way to tackle a lot of problems … including a vainglorious wannabe dictator poised to end U.S. democracy.My thoughts on President Donald Trump’s open contem...
