According to The Washington Free Beacon, senior White House officials and members of the National Security Council are pushing for Bolton, including senior administration officials loyal to Flynn who were upset at his exit.

“There’s a strong inclination in the NSC towards the kind of experienced leadership Bolton would represent,” one unnamed official told the Free Beacon. “He knows the ins and outs of D.C. but he’s not an establishment, Never Trump type.”

Another unnamed foreign policy source told the outlet that Bolton, as a senior figure in the George W. Bush administration, brings a deep knowledge of the White House that would give the new Trump administration added credibility.

Did McCain Just Call Trump A Dictator?

(NewsMax) Sen. John McCain on Saturday took a broad swipe at President Donald Trump’s attack on the media, warning that “how dictators get started” is by shutting down the press.

Story Continues Below…

In an interview to air on NBC News’ “Meet The Press,” the Arizona Republican conceded the media and elected officials often have an adversarial relationship; the Trump administration has repeatedly sparred with reporters and Trump himself has labeled media organizations “fake news.”

The remarks were posted ahead of the airing by NBC News.

“A fundamental part of that new world order was a free press,” McCain said, adding laughingly: “I hate the press. I hate you especially. But the fact is we need you.”

McCain’s comments came in response to a Friday tweet from Trump in which he chillingly branded news outlets – the New York Times, NBC News, ABC, CBS and CNN – “the enemy of the American People.”

Norma McCorvey Passes Away

(LifeNews) Norma McCorvey, who was the Jane Roe of the infamous Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court case legalizing virtually unlimited abortions, passed away today. McCorvey never had an abortion and eventually became pro-life and dedicated her life to overturning the horrible Supreme Court decision that bared her pseudonym.

McCorvey died today at an assisted-living facility in Katy, Texas. She was 69.

McCorvey never wanted an abortion — she was seeking a divorce from her husband — but young, pro-abortion feminist attorney Sarah Weddington used McCorvey’s case as a means of attempting to overturn Texas’ law making most abortions illegal. Weddington took the case all the way to the Supreme Court, which invalidated every pro-life state law in the nation protecting unborn children and the rest is history.

School Teacher Fired For Agreeing With Trump…

(WND) Employees of a Georgia school district known for its diversity of refugees and migrants – legal and illegal – are being told not to express themselves on or off campus if their views on immigration line up with those of President Donald Trump.

Story Continues Below…

If their words are considered not “welcoming” of refugees and migrants, they will face investigation and possible termination.

DeKalb County Schools Superintendent Stephen Green issued the statement after Trump’s executive orders banning travel temporarily from seven Muslim countries. In it, Green delivered a stern warning to teachers and staff: Any comments made inside or outside the classroom must line up with the school district’s commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.

The statement, issued Jan. 30, is the second such warning Green has issued since Trump’s election and since two teachers were forced to resign, one in November and another in December, for allegedly making comments disparaging of illegal immigration in the presence of students and staff. The teachers reportedly told illegal-alien students they would be deported under Trump, but the teachers say their comments were bent out of context.

Not So Fast… Ford Building Those Plants In Mexico After All

(AFP) US car maker Ford is sticking with a plan to open two auto-parts plants in Mexico this year, despite earlier announcing it had scrapped plans for a separate factory there.

Story Continues Below…

Ford without warning last month canceled plans to build a $1.6 billion project in San Luis Potosi, an auto-making area in central Mexico.

Gabriel Lopez, president and CEO of Ford Mexico, said however that this did not affect two other projects it has under way in the country since 2015, which are scheduled to begin production this year.

The plants, in the central state of Guanajuato and the northern city of Chihuahua, will make engines and transmissions.

They will supply Ford factories in the United States, South America, Europe and Asia.
