In a 2014 interview with The Washington Blade, a newspaper and website devoted to the gay community in the nation’s capital, former ambassador to Panama John D. Feeley aligned himself with President Barack Obama’s LGBT diplomacy–even when it meant feuding with local Catholic bishops. The Blade reported:
Feeley conceded progress on LGBT rights in Latin American countries has been “spotty,” in spite of a few exceptions. These include Mexico City extending marriage rights to same-sex couples in 2010 and Uruguay and Argentina enacting expansive transgender rights laws.
“We have seen in some places — Argentina, Uruguay — some very progressive, advanced thinking,” he said.
Feeley also applauded gay U.S. Ambassador to the Dominican Republic James “Wally” Brewster and his husband, Bob Satawake, in spite of lingering opposition over the appointment from Cardinal Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez of the Archdiocese of Santo Domingo and other religious leaders in the predominantly Roman Catholic country.
Feeley told the paper that the problem with some countries in the Southern Hemisphere is their obsession with machismo.
Despite progress the Obama administration and gay rights advocates were making in parts of the hemisphere, Feeley told the paper, is still: “absolutely retrograde, medieval behavior” in the region.
There were multiple media reports that Feeley resigned because of comments attributed to President Donald J. Trump during a private meeting with lawmakers at the White House Thursday, but Feeley, an Obama holdover had already made his decision to quit.

John Bolton Completes Turncoat Transformation, Slams Trump White House For Delaying Tell-All Book
Bolton’s book is subject to a national security review.
Former White House National Security Adviser John Bolton bemoaned a national security review of his upcoming tell-all book when speaking at Duke University on Monday.
Bolton isn’t pleased that his book, “The Room Where it Happened: A White House Memoir,” is being delayed while White House national security personnel thoroughly review it to ensure any and all classified information remains private. According to Bolton, the book’s been in review since December 30th, hardly a lengthy period of time to ensure that classified U.S intelligence isn’t released to the broader public.
According to Bolton, the process is censorship.
“I say things in the manuscript about what [Trump] said to me; I hope they become public someday. He tweets, but I can’t talk about it — how fair is that?”
Bolton was fired as National Security Adviser for consistently trying to undermine the President’s America First foreign policy vision, instead preferring a neoconservative approach of regime change, globalism, and wide-ranging foreign intervention.
He’s flirted strongly with anti-Trump resistance liberals since his ouster, falling out of the President’s good graces and drawing his ire in presidential tweets.
For a guy who couldn’t get approved for the Ambassador to the U.N. years ago, couldn’t get approved for anything since, “begged” me for a non Senate approved job, which I gave him despite many saying “Don’t do it, sir,” takes the job, mistakenly says “Libyan Model” on T.V., and..

This isn’t the first time that Bolton has claimed the White House are censoring him. He incorrectly believed the White House was blocking his access to his official Twitter account, when by all indications it simply appears he was unaware how to bypass the two-factor authentication needed to access Twitter from a new IP address after his firing.
It’s totally reasonable for Bolton’s profiteering book to be delayed for any and all considerations over classified information. The longtime neoconservative pundit will simply have to wait to cash in.
