Pompey, not Brutus? I am joking. What is happening today reminds me of history before our democracy with balanced powers. It seems people educated for technology do not have a good understanding of the importance of balanced powers, and opposing points of view.

...
Yah, even though Tillerson was @ the heights of oil/natgas extraction, with no formal political background @ all, he was apparently still too reality-based for Trump's liking. Tillerson should be grateful, however, that he's been jettisoned before the ship of state comes a cropper.

Pompeo, I'm sure, will do well @ State. He'll doubtless finally get to the bottom (again!) of the Benghazi scandal/crisis in time for the primetime newscast - whenever he actually gets there. In reality, of course, he'll merely mark time @ State - maybe recruiting any worthwhile intel analysts @ State's intelligence department - assuming there's anybody left over there. Then State will likely be moved over to the White House Protocol Office, its role limited to providing suits to place wreaths @ important international ceremonies, whenever VP Pence is too busy to attend.

Since Pres. W, the State Depart. has been deemphasized. It's the US military that are now the US proconsuls, attended with all the pomp & circumstance that all that money, patronage & hardware merit out beyond the Pale.

And not long after, Tillerson's top aid was punted as well.

A separate but interesting factoid, within minutes of the Republican President's tweet firing Tillerson, Nikki Haley tweeted congratulations to Pompeo with nary a reference to poor Rex.

Which job is she positioning herself for?

Unbelievable! The man doesn't even have the courage to talk to Tillerson face to face. In other news, John McEntee (Trump aide) was escorted out of the WH this morning because he is currently under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes, a source familiar with his firing told CNN.

The charges are not related to the President, the source said. (LOL--RIGHT!)

Minutes after news of his departure broke, the Trump campaign announced McEntee would be joining the reelection effort as a senior adviser for campaign operations. (SURE!)

McEntee escorted from the White House on Monday, three sources with knowledge of the matter told CNN. Two sources said McEntee was pushed out because of issues with his security clearance, making him just the latest aide to be forced out because of difficulties obtaining a full security clearance.

Little Sarah Sanders said, "We don't comment on personal issues." HUH??

Loyalty over all, just like every two-bit dictator. Did you see DeVos showing how much she doesn't know about education??


DeVos?? What a joke and a half. "After embarrassing herself on CBS’ 60 Minutes, one of President Donald Trump’s controversial cabinet appointments, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, retreated to the administration's safe space on Fox & Friends, where she was asked easy questions and not challenged on the specifics of a school safety commission she will chair.

In a March 11 interview with 60 Minutes anchor Leslie Stahl, DeVos struggled to provide evidence in support of “school choice,” her signature issue, stumbled when challenged on her claims, and failed to answer even basic questions about schools in her home state. When pressed to say whether there are as many false accusations as actual sexual assaults on college campuses -- which fits into a long-standing right-wing media myth that the problem of sexual assault is overblown -- DeVos said, "I don't know."

From Tillerson's "goodbye" speech:

Quote:
His voice quivering, Tillerson thanked career diplomats for their “honesty and integrity” and the American people for “acts of kindness,” and he singled out Defense Secretary Jim Mattis for their partnership and mutual support of diplomacy. But he notably did not thank Trump or praise his policies.

The moment he called his boss a moron his days were numbered. I'm surprised it took this long.

So, you won't criticize Lord Lard-Ass until those things change?
