Ethics department ... essentially gone, non-operative at this point
War Crimes department ... being closed

Thank god the FBI cannot be removed.

This will make Amy's list for authoritarian happenings this week, for sure. She was just declared a "Radical lesbian" by Russian state news outlets last week ... so, she is turning into kind of a big deal. ;)

Just think for a moment though, a war crimes government oversight and military conduct department is going to be closed. Currently, the military is doing far more on their own, than previously, because the current ranking civilian over them has no good civilian advisors and he himself knows pretty much nothing.

State Department closing things down.
Mattis asking for dollars to carry out policy at end of a gun, if diplomats and other aide aren't going to be around.
State Department takes their eyes off Mattis.

Sounds brilliant!

Banan republic transformation is happening by increments. We better keep track and reverse this.

Surely no American,military or private,would be tortured if captured.
Glad no one knows about "What goes around ,comes around."

You can't defend Trump without owning Tillerson. I wonder if all the Trumpcucks are so lost down the rabbit hole, that now they'll find themselves defending Tillerson. Yuck

Did Obama prosecute Cheney, Tillerson wants to shut down the War Crimes division that initiated it,, and somehow I missed it?

War Crimes is bullshit.

Who cares who the free, very diverse, much more so than the US Monotone Neoliberal Oligarch Media (find me a Communist DAILY newspaper in the US) calls a Radical Lesbian? And since when is a newspaper, state-owned or private-owned, marking somebody as a "Whatever" is a war crime?

US MSM cover up Linda Sarsour's terrorist-praising comments all the time.

The answer to that is clearly yes. Not to mention Jeff "I want to increase civil forfeiture and drug prosecution" Sessions.

Trump cares nothing about governing. The above a-holes are going to be the ones making policy.

Sounds like a den of lawyers to me.
And it sounds redundant and useless. If the alleged war crime is committed by a USA citizen, there's already a legal system to prosecute them. If it was committed by a foreigner, there's the tribunal in The Hague, for al the good it can do attempting to prosecute someone not under their influence.

I suspect that there are entrenched deep state people in that office he wants to get rid of, and might have to at least temporarily close the office to do so. He's been cleaning house lately. It's brilliant!

Thousands...billions...
takes a lot of thousands to get to billions, but in the end it all adds up anyway.

He asked, "You have indicated that Mars was totally different thousands of years ago. Is it possible that there was a civilization on Mars thousands of years ago?"

The job of answering this question fell to Kenneth Farley, a project scientist on the Mars 2020 rover mission and a professor of geochemistry at California Institute of Technology. He calmly answered, "So the evidence is that Mars was different billions of years ago. Not thousands of years ago."

Perfect example of libbie scientists mathematical computational skills.
'thousands' is plural
1000 thousands = 1 billion.
So the statement "Not thousands of years ago" is fake news at it's finest.
Nothingburger with fries here....move on.

Asking a question is one of the smartest things a person can do.
Not asking a question on something that you do not have a definitive answer is one of the dumbest decisions a person can make.
So now libbies are trying to shame people that 'ask questions'? Now that's a big WTF...

anonymous says

Add this to the WTF department....

Congressman asks scientists if they’ve found ancient civilizations on Mars. “Would you rule that out?

C'mon...Condi Rice is featured on TV at US tennis matches as some sort of celebrity. The media is ga ga over George W. Bush's childish paintings. John Yoo got a plum job at UC Berkeley Law.

War crimes pay well.

I'm all about the Socratic method. The problem comes when people realize that your questions are leading them to a conclusion they don't like.

Yes the war crimes department had the idiots that made Criminals out of our soldiers doing their job.

The employees should all be water boarded for their exit interview.

soon and wants to protect himself.
