John Bolton, the incoming US Security Adviser John Bolton, tried to end Iran's nuclear deal last year, "tells us a lot about it" How he understands America's place in the world Eli Lake. Unlike the Beltway establishment, which wanted to keep the deal intact, Bolton set out to "rock the boat." So he designed a detailed and aggressive political and diplomatic strategy that "announced more than just the retreat of America". he "presented options that are very close to a regime change." But President Trump "went along with the strategy of repairing the Iran deal rather than killing it altogether." Now, however, Bolton will, in his new official role, "have the chance to argue again."
From right: Will Trump really hit the wall?
As a candidate, Donald Trump made the construction of a wall on America's southern border the centerpiece of his campaign. As President, he continues to praise his virtues, albeit less theatrically.

Conservative: NBA has the best sports activism
Laura Ingraham may want basketball players to simply "shut up and dribble," but Siraj Hashmi of the Washington Examiner suggests NBA stars make a successful balancing act between "completely respectful." and have made very social issues. After all, he notes pro-hoop players "stand for the national anthem" (they are required by league rules) and "give their communities back in a meaningful way."

In fact, "they are sensible, and above all, they are not at every waking moment in politics, they talk when they have to, and they do not let themselves be defined who they are." Maybe that's why that the NBA, in contrast to the NFL, enjoys "a flood of quotas".
