Former White House national security adviser John Bolton was recently spotted wandering the streets of Qatar for reasons unknown, sparking questions about why the mustachioed neocon war hawk was in the Middle East.

A video of Bolton reportedly walking on a sidewalk in Doha, Qatar was posted to Twitter on Wednesday.

It is unknown whether Bolton is in Qatar to cash in on a lobbyist job, as so many former government officials are known to do, or to do something more sinister.

One Twitter user identified the location of the video:

Bolton recently stated that he would testify in a Senate trial regarding President Donald Trump following his impeachment by Congress, even if it is against the wishes of the administration.

“The House has concluded its Constitutional responsibility by adopting Articles of Impeachment related to the Ukraine matter. It now falls to the Senate to fulfill its Constitutional obligation to try impeachments, and it does not appear possible that a final judicial resolution of the still-unanswered Constitutional questions can be obtained before the Senate acts,” Bolton wrote.

“Accordingly, since my testimony is once again at issue, I have had to resolve the serious competing issues as best I could, based on careful consideration and study. I have concluded that, if the Senate issues a subpoena for my testimony, I am prepared to testify,” he added.

Since Bolton left the White House, President Trump has talked candidly about his incompetence as national security adviser and the many differences of opinion between the two men.

“So, John is somebody that I actually got along with very well. He made some very big mistakes,” Trump said a day following his ouster of Bolton from the White House.

“And it set us back, and frankly he wanted to do things — not necessarily tougher than me — You know John’s known as a tough guy. He’s so tough he got us into Iraq … but he’s actually somebody I had a very good relationship with. But he wasn’t getting along with people in the administration that I consider very important,” he added.

Bolton has threatened the White House publicly, inferring that he may go rogue against his former boss.

Bolton also reportedly opposed President Trump’s diplomatic efforts with Ukraine. He was a vocal opponent of Trump’s talks with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which were used to promulgate the second phase of the impeachment witch hunt against the President.

Bolton’s lawyer Charles Cooper told the House of Representatives last year during the heat of their impeachment inquiry that his client “was personally involved in many of the events, meetings, and conversations about which you have already received testimony, as well as many relevant meetings and conversations that have not yet been discussed in the testimonies thus far.”

It may not be a coincidence that Ukraine-gate kicked off right after Bolton left the administration under less-than-ideal terms. Bolton’s shady appearance in Qatar only adds to the intrigue regarding his behavior as he readies himself to testify against the President to the Senate.

Campaign 2020

The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters

Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.

Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters. 

Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits. 

He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.

The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:

Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…

By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.

For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats. 

Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another. 

In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election. 

Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
