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.

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.

Tillerson almost certainly knew of Trump's intention and timing, reportedly from a telephone call last Friday from Trump's chief of staff, hence he cut short his Africa trip.

Re. Clinton, I doubt there was a serious intelligence agency in the whole world that did not read her emails.

The plot thickens, time to build a bigly, beautifully, firewall between us and the logic free zone of Washington DC.

Is was it is: alternatif de Coup d'état... "The working class is confronted with an extraordinary political situation. On the one hand, the Republican Trump administration has more military generals in top posts than any other previous government. On the other hand, the Democratic Party has opened its doors to a 'friendly takeover' by the intelligence agencies."
