  1. John Bolton, President Donald Trump’s fired national security adviser, harshly criticized Trump’s foreign policy on Wednesday at a private lunch, saying inviting the Taliban to Camp David sent a “terrible signal” and that it was “disrespectful” to the victims of 9/11 because the Taliban had harbored al Qaeda. Bolton also said that any negotiations with North Korea and Iran were “doomed to failure,” according to two attendees. “He ripped Trump, without using his name, several times,” said one attendee. Bolton didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. Bolton also said more than once that Trump’s failure to respond to the Iranian attack on an American drone earlier this summer set the stage for the Islamic Republic’s aggression in recent months. At one point, Bolton, a previous chairman of Gatestone, suggested that had the U.S. retaliated for the drone shootdown, Iran might not have damaged the Saudi oil fields. After the attack in June, Trump was poised to launch a military response against the Iranians -- strongly urged by Bolton -- but pulled back after Fox News host Tucker Carlson and others warned him that it was a bad idea. During Wednesday’s luncheon, Bolton said the planned response had gone through the full process and everybody in the White House had agreed on the retaliatory strike. But “a high authority, at the very last minute," without telling anyone, decided not to do it, Bolton complained. Billionaire Rebekah Mercer introduced Bolton as “the best national security adviser our country could have hoped for,” garnering her very loud applause. During the Q&A session, Dershowitz told the crowd that it was “a national disaster” that Bolton had been booted from the White House, to what the attendee described as “thunderous applause.” https://www.politico.com/story/2019/09/18/bolton-trump-foreign-policy-1501932
  2. I feel confident that the 20K people who showed up to see her in Washington Square park were all Wall St. types. /s
  3. OP is a false choice. It won't be either/or rather both/and.
  4. The lions would have a 26M dead cap hit if they cut Stafford next year.
  5. The defense is good but lets not get carried away. The Browns with all their mistakes and the Colts minus Luck aren't the best test of where they stand.
  6. The Panthers could easily move on from Cam after this year.
  7. I think there is a good chance that one of the side effects of RT playing is that he will open up the running game for Henry.
  8. JRob and Vrabel aren't going to intentionally lose games for an entire season.
  9. In his defense, he does have outstanding leadership ability, can read defenses and has already beaten out Eason and Fields at Ga. Still a long way to go and Ga. will be playing late into the season....SEC championship game for sure.
  10. Fromm is hard to judge because he has an elite OL and an elite RB and they run the ball successfully a high percentage of the time. That sets up Fromm's passing game.
  11. https://thedraftnetwork.com/player/jordan-love/PbA4nRzHfK Read all 4 reports on Love. He's not a good fit for a team ready to win right now. If Joe Barrow from LSU keeps playing like he has, he will be in the top group. His game against Texas was near elite.
  12. He's extremely raw from what I read. Haven't seen him yet.
  13. The OP doesn't know it either. It's his theory, therefore his burden of proof, not mine.
  14. It's not Amy. Unlike Bud, she's not stupid enough to try and make football decisions.
  15. Or both. One good thing. JRob has proven he isn't afraid, if necessary, to trade up and get his guy.
  16. The temperature was part of it. If you are on the visitors side, it is miserable.
  17. Tannehill on a 1 year deal and draft a QB in the 1st. If MM keeps playing like today, they may not even have to trade up.
