No Administration in US history, has had more turnover of top people than the Trump Residency, leading to an ever increasing level of incompetence due to chaos. Now, Trump has fired Putin’s choice for Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, and nominated Mike Pompeo, former CIA Director, Teabagger Representative from KS, and Kris Kobitch supporter, to fill the post.

As you pointed out, Tillerson was Putin's choice. So if there was any reason to fire him other than that he backed up Theresa May on "Putin poisoned Sergey and his daughter" - well, sure, there could have been any number of reasons, but you KNOW that's why Putin gave permission! Pompeo is a dominionist, and Gina Haskel is a torturer. The only reason she is a deputy in the CIA is that "Deputy" did not require Senate confirmation. Even so, Democrats on the Senate Intelligencr Committee (including your Ron Wyden) called her out at the time! I hope they will continue to stand up against her - and against him too! (The fun one is going to be NASA, I suspect.

Don't you love the way the clown tRump let Rex know he was fired? He has no professional respect what so ever. I can't wait till he is taken out of that position. Thanks TomCat

Thank you TomCat.

Tillerson’s sacking had been in the air for weeks, as the almost immediate response of media around the world showed. It was much like having the obituary finished ahead of time when someone famous takes ill, the British, Dutch and Australian major news media posted very similar ‘obituaries’ with just Drumpf’s Tweet added, and all remarking that Tillerson had gone against the White House by directly blaming Russia for the attempted murder of an ex-Russian spy and his daughter in London. Any Russian involvement in Tillerson’s firing was then left to the discretion of the readers, of course.

Let’s be honest, Tillerson isn’t a diplomat and a terrible choice for a Secretary of State, but he did better than I had expected him to do, mainly because he dared to voice a different, more reasonable, opinion from Drumpf’s. And ‘reasonable’ globalist Tillerson has more diplomatic feeling in his pinky than hawk America-über-Alles Pompeo, so with the latter behind desperately-looking-for-a-fight Drumpf, some country has it coming very soon. I leave the odds for North-Korea, Iran, Venezuela or China to the bookies, but you can be sure that the odds are now even further down for the USA in the rest of the world.

“We were not really thinking the same,” Mr. Trump told reporters at the White House, explaining his decision to replace Mr. Tillerson."

That's true. Tillerson criticized Vlad saying Russia was murdering people in other nations. Which is true. But not allowed in Donnie's administration. So he exchanges one maniac for another. Notice he can no longer go outside his Cabinet for appointments, no one wants "Trump Administration" on their resume given it isn't going to last much longer and many in it are going to prison. What a freaking zoo. The clown car is full to overflowing...

Tillerson had just lost his father and was sick being in Africa. He had asked, could it wait till I get home?
No consideration at all for anyone! after TRUMPY had appointed him!

If all this doesn't wake up the United States of America, - I feel more than sad! The entire world is watching the de-construction of our nation, the values, the hopes for a world where people could have a chance of living a compassionate life. It takes a great deal of problem solving to achieve such a goal, absolutely no doubt about that! However, the inspiration of this country came from such ideologies. Yes, our struggle to survive developed our aggressive behavior. Yet, our ability to have personal dreams for our lives and see a kinder better future in the distance has strengthened our thought processes to solve our difficulties without the mind of a brute. As far as I've observed, Trumpelstiltskin can only function on the brute mindset level. He does not inspire, nor lift spirits, he does not reconcile nor make peace, he does not lead with honor, nor facilitate positive relationships among people. He only takes us back to the mindset of fighting for survival and kill those who don't fall behind. He is a toxic menace to our planet. - and - a co-worker mentioned that a possible strategy of presidential impeachment could be to do so in the 3rd year to diminish the chances of a re-election. God help us. If he stays for 3 years, I pray of us all.

The stable genius is at it again. Creating kaos in his play pen to give the impression that he is stable and in control.

It's like we have unleashed the Tasmanian Devil of incompetence on the world. Is there room in the Guinness book of world records for this? Its as though the Barnum and Bailey Circus has been reincarnated and become the Trump Administration.

Congress has completely defaulted in its role in overseeing this administration and this president. Likely because the stable genius is letting them run wild with greed and their myriad social, religious and xenophobic perversities. Gone is any sense of unity, country, the power and strength inherent in diversity or America. What we have are just a series of knuckleheads dry humping the others, complete and unadulterated failure of leadership.

It won't save itself, the constituency needs to intervene because it is empowered with the ultimate power of oversight and it alone will decide if this country fails or thrives.

New and enthused candidates who demonstrate concern for the critical issues that we could tackle if and when we combine and focus our energies and an equally enthused constituency willing and able to engage and participate in the thrill and excitement of the self governance model set up for us by our founding fathers. That alone will save us from this circus side show of self centered letchery.

Who remembers the spirit embodied in "God bless America" an expression of enthusiasm for this unique form of government and calling on deep resources to bring it into being.
