Could John Bolton be the key to removing Donald Trump?
Jason Easley of Politics USA wrote on a new angle that MSNBC is pushing to get President Donald Trump out of office.
Nicole Wallace of MSNBC argued that former national security adviser John Bolton has the power to compel the U.S. Senate to convict and remove Donald Trump from office.
John Heilemann broke down this scenario on MSNBC’s Deadline White House:
You have used the analogy of brick by brick, and I think the Democrats have gone about this in a very sturdy way trying to get this case across. Where I think we are right now, however, is that castle that’s being built out of those bricks is going to be large and imposing and undeniable in what it looks like to anybody with eyes in their head.
And, yet, I don’t think at this moment that that castle, that built, that edifice is going to be enough to move Republicans in an appreciable number in either the House or the Senate to act in the way the Democrats are going to want to act with respect to the disposition of president trump’s presidency, which is why I think so much now hinges in a way on John Bolton. And he is the person who can do something other than build the edifice, the person who because of his credibility, because of his place in the world, because of what he means to conservatism, because of what his place in the world and particularly the Republican world.
The more we learn about him and his role in this, where he was and what he was privy to, what he witnessed, if he came forward and told the story, it might be enough to start to shift the tectonic plates. It might. Not necessarily because we know Republicans are resistant to even powerful pieces of evidence but he’s the wildcard now, and, man, could he — turns out to be the most high-value target on the list by a long, long way.
Nicole Wallace added her two cents, “I am reluctant to say this out loud because I don’t want to put anything in the water that could disincentivize John Bolton from testifying, but I believe he is the difference between conviction and no conviction in the Senate.”
It’s anyone’s guess what Bolton is capable of doing.
Bolton was among the most hawkish individuals in the Trump administration and did everything he could to undermine his restrained foreign policy.
He’s now secured a book deal detailing his time during the Trump administration, which will likely be filled with critiques of Trump’s allegedly “isolationist” approach to foreign policy.
To add insult to injury, Bolton has been throwing Trump’s foreign policy under the bus during a talk with corporate big wigs at Morgan Stanley.
All in all, Bolton’s presence in the Trump administration will not be missed.
For the country’s sake, let’s hope Bolton stays on the sidelines during this impeachment drama.
Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit
She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.
A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.
Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.
Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.
A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.
Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.
So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.
Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:
The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.
Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.
Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”
He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”
Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
