Sec of State Tillerson Fired: From Bad to Worse, Iran Warmonger In

The warmongers and trade idiots are increasingly in control of the White House.

President Trump on Tuesday ousted his secretary of state, Rex W. Tillerson, extending a shake-up of his administration, 14 months into his tumultuous presidency, and potentially transforming the nation’s economic and foreign policy.

Mr. Trump announced he would replace Mr. Tillerson with Mike Pompeo, the C.I.A. director and former Tea Party congressman, who forged a close relationship with the president and is viewed as being more in sync with Mr. Trump’s America First credo.

Mr. Tillerson learned he had been fired on Tuesday morning when a top aide showed him a tweet from Mr. Trump announcing the change, according to a senior State Department official.

Tweet Announcement

Trump did not even have the decency to tell Tillerson to his face.

Actually, Hillary was the worst secretary of state ever. Libya alone offers sufficient evidence. Also consider security violations for which Hillary ought to be in prison. That said, the rest of Krugman's claim has reasonable merit.

This is what America voted for so don't be surprised. Trade wars followed by actual wars. MAGA!


Oh, man 😊
The upside to Trump making the usual Washington idiocy even more in your face, at least if we’re lucky, is that perhaps a few of the pliable, uncritical, well indoctrinated yahoos designated as simple cheering drones, may just finally realize that there really isn’t one single benefit from having the current US government, vs the current Somali one. Not one single one. Not In any, even theoretically possible, way. It’s pure retardsville, without one single redeeming feature whatsoever.


Oh well if the standard of living of the average Joe should plummet to a level shared by India, then it's probably all for the best. The culture has become far to decadent in any case.


We are all made very rich by our absurdly overvalued capital. That IS the wealth effect. That IS what separates the first world from the third world. Does anyone realize that once we lose the premium that's paid on our capital, we will actually have to take the default share of the world's poverty like everyone else?
Apparently nobody understands that. They think the US is rich because of higher productivity or because of silicon valley. Morons. The world is populated by morons, I'm surrounded by dogs.
