Let's concede first that Donnie Dotard- a.k.a. "Captain Bone Spurs" - who actually fancies having a military parade - is the last person who should. This is because he is NO military guy- i.e. five times he ran away from the chance to serve by using the excuse of bone spurs. So what better way for an utter, loser coward to try to portray himself as a rough, tough "military" hombre? No one is fooled other than his Trumpkin groupies. Rather than be man enough to face former FBI Director James Comey directly and explain his real reasons for his firing, the spineless putz asked his bodyguard to tell James Comey back in May.
Now, in what we can only call "Coward Redux" - this yellow haired, yellow bellied slime ball - for some reason adored by clueless Trumpkins - has fired Rex Tillerson, this time by a tweet. Can we finally say, those of us with enough spare brains and eyes to see, that this good for nothing, chiseling, con-man coward has more business being in charge of a diaper service than being President of the United States?
Basically, the latest move of this walking turd disgrace to the race threw U.S. diplomacy into fresh turmoil yesterday by firing his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson – said to have discovered his fate via Twitter. Meanwhile, Dotard compounded his mental disease and degeneracy by promoting two officials condemned by human rights groups for endorsing or overseeing torture. One (Gina Haspel)has also come under scrutiny for her role in CIA torture under George W Bush and the destruction of evidence.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) interviewed this morning about the pick didn't mince words:
"I don't want to send a message to the world that torture is okay, because our young men and women can be captured too. And if the whole world thinks it's okay to torture prisoners they'll do the same to ours. She is the poster child for what went wrong with water boarding and she should never, ever be the head of the CIA."
Well, let's hope enough senators agree and vote down this egregious Trump pick at the hearings.
To get a fair idea of what Haspel's spooks were up to readers should check out the film Zero Dark Thirty. The CIA honchos deny it's of a factual basis, but anyone familiar with some of the records released by Snowden, know it's on the mark.
Taking Tillerson's place will be another degenerate and a puppet of the Koch billionaire brothers, Mike Pompeo. As John Nichols put it in an article e-mailed to me by a fellow Freethinker last night:
"Now Pompeo is positioned to become a Koch brothers–influenced secretary of state.
After serving for a little more than a year as Donald Trump’s top yes-man at the Central Intelligence Agency, Pompeo is Trump’s pick to replace Rex Tillerson, the administration’s listless placeholder at the Department of State.
In a measure of the extent to which Trump and Tillerson had disengaged from one another, the outgoing secretary of state apparently learned of his firing via Twitter Tuesday morning—when an aide showed the nation’s top diplomat a tweet from the president announcing the transition. A statement from the department indicated that Tillerson was “unaware of the reason” for his removal.
Tillerson displayed a measure of independence from Trump on issues ranging from Russian cyber attacks to the aggressive approach of Saudi Arabia to Qatar and other countries. "
