Tillerson sacked
« on: March 13, 2018, 10:59:29 AM »
Well, in the latest round of government by tantrum, the Orange Disaster Area fired SecState Rex Tillerson today, apparently without bothering to tell Tillerson first.  Mike Pompeo is tapped to come over from the CIA to be the new Secretary of State.

Hmmmm...
What's going to be interesting about Pompeo's nomination is that so far he's been hawkish on Russia.  We'll see how long he lasts if he says anything about Tsar Vladimir.  And if he does roll over and play nice on Russia, then getting him out of the CIA may actually be a good thing, relatively speaking.  Shows how low the bar has to be set for this White House to get 'good'...

The target has shifted from N Korea to Iran.  Bibi has ordered it.  All the Russia stuff is distraction for the sheeple.

The new woman head of the CIA, will claim she killed Osama with her bare hands.  Nobody can check, no corpse.

But there's no chaos in the White house, nothing but high energy...

I have to admit, I never cared much for Tillerson, but damn!

I see that Chump's personal assistant has also been fired! But he was hired by the campaign for 2020.

I've done so many face palms since Chump got in office that I'm in danger of beating myself to death!

One more terrible human being removed from the government, with 3 worse waiting to fill his space (and 6 more waiting to fill what ever vacancy they leave).

I want to be happy about this, but I just cant.

Most people thought that Tillerson was "more of the same" kind of swamp creature.  It seems if you aren't CIA, or DoD or Goldman-Sachs, you won't last long in this administration.

He was caught with his hand in the till-erson.  Yes, supposedly financial trickery tripped him up.

If we really saw things as they are ... all the grifting by all the folks near power and money .. I think most people would off themselves.  They keep it from the public, best they can, for our own safety.  Remember the scifi movie a few years ago, where everyone was committing suicide randomly?  Maybe that should have been a story where people finally got past all the propaganda.

Hey, sometimes you need new tires every week because the last ones couldn't dodge that big pothole in that construction zone.  Or that same pothole the next week.  Or new brakes every month because the last one didn't stop the car from hitting that tree a quarter-second after they were pushed.  Cars are so unreliable...

I know a few people that still think Trump isda shit. They say “liberals are waiting for him to screw up”. I kinda think that happened 13 months ago.

Insane people saying Trump is going to go down in history as one the best presidents ever. Course not many of them pay attention to anything Trump does.

BTW that well oiled machine just keeps going. Just last week Trump was bragging about election night like it was a few days ago.... kinda like grandpa bragging about something that happened 20 years ago
not expecting god to show up, but if he does we’re going to have to beat the prick up.
