Friday News: John Bolton Pick Means “It’s Time to Panic Now”; Trump Trade War Killing Stock Markets; “Tim Kaine is looking for a Democratic wave”

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Friday, March 23.

  • Anthony Shifflett

    I am just taking a beating in the market because of Trump. That pales compared to the danger we’ve put ourselves in. I sure hope things don’t fly apart before the election this fall, but not optimistic…

    • The markets could get a lot worse…take your money out now?

      Take your money out of the market and go to Vegas. Your odds of winning are better in Vegas.

      • With Trump in the White House, you’re right.

  • Dems can do better than a guy who fantasizes about beating “the hell” out of the opposing candidate and who says anyone who talked like Trump was “always the fattest, ugliest SOB in the room”


    • RobertColgan

      Walter E Williams has long been the resident John M. Olin award scholar there.
      …Olin is the character who gave away his fortune ($370 Mil) over 52 years to fund conservative academic teaching posts which would further the conservative free market message to young impressionable minds ripe for the picking, especially among the law schools and the economics departments.

  • RobertColgan

    I suspect John Bolton’s true concern is protecting against foreign powers that threaten to interfere with the precious bodily fluids.

  • RobertColgan

    Placing John Bolton in the position of National Security Advisor is not really that much different from hiring Charles Manson as nanny for the kids.

  • RobertColgan

    Good article about his latest announcement…..
    Why Goodlatte’s committee never even CONSIDERED the Emoluments Clause shredding by Trump&Family……?!? Staggering political ineptitude masquerading as partisan protectionism, as evidenced by the demand for Clinton investigation documentation.

  • From Rep. Don Beyer’s office:

    Beyer: Appointment of John Bolton Is a Monumental Step Backward

    March 23, 2018 (Washington, D.C.) – Rep. Don Beyer released the following statement after President Donald Trump appointed John Bolton to be his third National Security Advisor, amassing one of the most aggressive and hard-line national security teams in modern political history:

    “Even for this Administration, the appointment of John Bolton is a monumental step backward. President Trump desperately needs tempered and measured voices around him; Bolton is neither of those things. His appointment carries grave national security implications, and sends the worst kind of message to our allies.

    “Bolton is a discredited actor in the foreign policy community, and helped lead us into the Iraq war. His views on North Korea and Iran could lead us down a similar path. He was ousted from the George W. Bush Administration for being an extremist, and is the opposite kind of voice this White House needs. We are inherently less safe as a result of this decision.”
