On Bolton & the U.N.

Martin Peretz is a partisan Democrat who is, first and foremost, a patriot and an honest man. He sees the opposition to John Bolton's nomination as UN ambassador for what it is:

Now, Bolton has made an issue of the Oil-for-Food scandal, management reform, membership in ancillary agencies (for example, whether notorious human rights-abusing states--like China and Cuba--should be elected to the new U.N. Human Rights Council; they were), and other matters like corruption, the sexually abusive behavior of U.N. peacekeepers, et cetera. It is not that he hasn't accepted compromises. He has. But the American U.N. lobby (there is one) is content, even eager, to leave the bloated, corrupt, and often unethical norms of the organization be. It certainly doesn't want a searchlight focused on them. This lobby is very hostile to Bolton's confirmation.

May 11-LOS ANGELES - Court records concerning the divorce of John R. Bolton, show his first wife fled the couple's marital home.

Corroborated allegations that Mr. Bolton's first wife, Christina Bolton, was forced to engage in group sex have not been refuted by the State Department despite inquires posed by Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt concerning the allegations. Mr. Flynt has obtained information from numerous sources that Mr. Bolton participated in paid visits to Plato's Retreat, the popular swingers club that operated in New York City in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

"Mr. Flynt," which is more respect than Larry deserves, is among the leftist moonbats who believe "allegations" equal "truth." When those same moonbats begin citing news releases from Flynt, an admitted and unabashed (in his own terms) "pornographer," as a source, their deranged desperation must be reaching a fever pitch.

Flynt, after deciding he did not personally believe Bill Clinton's Grand Jury perjury warranted impeachment, began gathering "information" by paying anyone claiming to have damaging dirt on conservatives. Flynt's own daughter told reporters that James Carville was behind her father's efforts, and that the Clintons (illegally, of course) provided FBI reports on various Republicans to Flynt to assist his dirt digging efforts. Flynt, naturally, denied his daughter's reports.

Larry Flynt is among those "sources" whose reputation is even lower than the New York Times' and Dan Blather's standings these days.
