Trump fires Secretary of State Tillerson, taps CIA director Pompeo

By Feux Follets following x   2018 Mar 13, 6:22am 1,076 views   42 comments   watch   sfw   quote     share    


U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he had replaced U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with Central Intelligence Agency Director Mike Pompeo, and had tapped Gina Haspel to lead the CIA.

The resignation represents the biggest shakeup of the Trump Cabinet so far and had been expected since last October when reports surfaced about a falling out between Trump and Tillerson, 65, who left his position as chief executive of Exxon Mobil to join the administration.

U.S. stock index futures pared their gains and the dollar also trimmed gains versus the yen while extending losses versus the euro amid the news.

“Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!” Trump said on Twitter.

Get rid of the imbecile Jeff Sessions.

Keep asking myself how much worse can it get but I think I better stop asking.

Now about that bloody nose strike in North Korea and more misadventures to boost someone's ego



“I have gotten to know Mike very well over the past 14 months, and I am confident he is the right person for the job at this critical juncture. He will continue our program of restoring America’s standing in the world, strengthening our alliances, confronting our adversaries, and seeking the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” Trump said.

Liberals, liberals . A meeting is what gets them riled up?? I try and understand liebrals and their craziness is beyond normalcy.

Pig Obama gives billions to iran and gets practically nothing in return-that is genius.

Trump agrees to meet with N. Korea without giving a thing, strong sanctions and liberals go crazy. What do you expect from a group of people who think there are 32 genders-or is it 54 genders now??

Liberals are nuts -I hope they come to their senses some time. It must be exhausting.

For all of you deep state assholes elevated to a Trump Deep State Affirmative action position because the Establishment resisted Trump's original Cabinet picks.
Ha Ha Ha You deep State bitches, did you really think Trump respects your opinion? Tell them stupid dumb asses to get out Trump's way and quit interfering with Trump's Presidency.

The more you resist the more we all shit on Obama's legacy, perhaps Obama might have a nice museum somewhere if he would go away and shut the fuck up.
That's way more than the evil cocksucker deserves.

No kidding.

Remember when Liberals were saying that Tillerson was picked because he was a big friend of Putin?

Pompeo is no Russia (or Iran) fan.

Wonder what make believe narrative the dishonest Liberals will come up with next?

Trump nominates Gina Haspel as CIA director. She has been overseeing illegal CIA programs, such as torture, detention without court, secret prisons and so on. This is horribly wrong, if anything, she is a swamp creature/Deep State squared. And if someone says "she tortured our enemies and so it is OK" - you will see how this torture will come back to US, just like the wars came back in shape of militarized police departments.

I really have no problem with him firing people. May be it is even a slight positive - high level bureaucrats get knocked off their podiums. What I have a really, really big problem is that he puts a person who is either a sadistic bitch or has no spine (does not go against illegal orders by superiors) in charge. But then again, Trump probably wants a spineless subordinate.

Based on the comments from some of the "deplorables" on this thread it is getting easier to understand why Trump is in office since there is a clear lack of depth of understanding all the way around.

Potus classless act from a classless person. Firing someone via twitter who also found out about the termination via twitter, not enough balls to fire the guy face to face. Truly a priceless display of leadership, tact, diplomacy and ethics.

Tillerson is more of a negotiator leader and statesman as well than Potus could ever hope to be. This was someone who actually needed to be involved with the goings on in the Middle East and especially Asia.

Didn't care for everything he did in his past gig to be sure but at least he wasn't bragging about being a stable genius.

Yep.

Pelosi (2017): Rex Tillerson is "too cozy" with Putin, he's a Russian puppet.

Rex Tillerson's cozy relationship with the Kremlin is especially alarming in light of his attitude toward sanctions over Russia's aggressive behavior in Europe, while at the same time the President-elect continues to side with Russia over the judgment of the U.S. intelligence community. President-elect Trump's priorities.

"The Secretary of State should champion American values, American security and American interests. Fawning over Putin is poor preparation for being the top diplomat of the United States of America."


Pelosi (2018): Rex Tillerson was fired because he stood up to Russia.

Secretary Tillerson's firing sets a profoundly disturbing precedent in which standing up for our allies against Russian aggression is grounds for a humiliating dismissal.

President Trump's actions show that every official in his Administration is at the mercy of his personal whims and his worship of Putin."


Boy, you Dems can really pick some brain dead winners to represent you.

Where to begin ? Make it short and sweet instead. Despite his past tenure at Exxon (a company I loathe) he was more suited than Potus to be Potus.

Refer to my comment 25 for any clarification.

Again, considering your brave Potus didn't have the where with all to meet this guy in person and let him know his fate is really beyond any sense of decency, normalcy, ethics, - anything a true leader would have done, but then we don't have a leader in the White House.

Then to go on record as saying he would be "communicating" regularly with Rex is an even more blatant display of outright lying since he rarely talked to the guy when he was holding the position.

The deplorables have elected one of the greatest embarrassments to leadership the world has and ever will know.

How does Potus methods in terminating Tillerson compare to what is usual and customary when dealing with another human being, provided of course Potus sees someone as human and not as an inanimate object or other than piece on a chess board to fulfill his delusions of glory and grandeur.

Going to think you are quietly applauding in the background so how does this next rumored move grab you ?

John (Bomb Iran, Invade Iraq etc.) Bolton to replace H.R. McMaster - sounds good huh ?

Remember how much fun we had shocking and aweing the Iraqi people and the world television audience ?

Wasn't that quite the spectacle ? And not just on the tube.

Remember how that little excursion ran the deficit the hell up not too mention the forgotten costs of taking care of all the "heroes" who got sent over there as cannon fodder. Talk about your good times.

A new war we didn't need started by a draft dodging President who listened to John Bolton amongst others firmly entrenched in NeoCon Nirvana.

Your children or grandchildren didn't get a chance to take part in a NeoCon wet dream ?

Great news for you ! Get them down to your recruiting office today, request front line infantry in Afghanistan, anywhere in the Middle East, Africa (don't say this too loud, no one supposed to know were there) and of course South Korea.

Do your part America - just like in Vietnam be the very first one on you block to have your kid or grandkid come home in a box.

You will get a robo signed letter from someone important somewhere in the government who pretends to care and best of all there will be billions added to an already exploding deficit generations of your heirs will be paying off and can thank you for.

Feel better now ?

This next excursion in Asia is going to be so much more sweller than Shock and Awe.

Wonder what clever code name it will have to suck in the television audiences ?

Maybe the theme from Jaws playing in the background before the bodies and body parts start flying in Seoul and surrounding areas.

Whhhhheeeeeeeee ! MAGA ! WINNING !

By the way Bolton ran his mouth yet once again making the case for a preemptive strike on North Korea citing them as a grave and imminent danger despite their never having a rocket get much past Japan or anything but conjecture as to what their capabilities are but cleverly failed to mention South Korea one time.

Isn't that grand ? The same John Bolton who never got his nut by bombing Iran.

No mention of South Korea who will bear the brunt of some neo-cons cum inducing dream of seeing bombs drop or mushroom clouds.

Personally I think Potus, Bolton, Pompeo and the rest should have at least their eldest child on the DMZ without any extra protection just like the rank and file and better yet they attend in person to witness the extravaganza they have created and give the American people a first hand account.

Butter flavored or regular popcorn for this one ?
