Didn't see that coming, but I don't pay any particular attention to the Whitehouse to differentiate the normal CNN the sky-is-falling chaff from real life weirdness.

I'll miss Rex, and I wish the President good luck in his dealings with NK, but I have the uneasy feeling he is getting played, which with this President is very easy.

Trump should have named Dennis "The Worm" Rodman Secretary of State,
he and Little Rocket Boy are tight.

I think he shoulda named Stormy Daniels Sec of State. Dennis just doesn’t know how to dress.

But he did make today’s paper, for a double DUI conviction. With his record he only got
“informal probation”, a 9 month alcohol program, and a $390 fine? Our justice system is a joke.

To be replaced by Mike Pompeo, who "has done nothing but talk about how we need to take the gloves off..." (via https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/30/us/politics/mike-pompeo-state-cia.html ).

Now he'll get his chance. If you're in the weapons business, these should be a profitable few years.

Regardless of the party in charge the weapons business has been booming since 911.

Go figure.

Do you mean 911 AD? Or 911 BC?

More likely since some caveman got a reputation for making a better club than anyone else.

"911 changed everything." So did the "shoe bomber" and the "underpants bomber." Now we have to take our shoes off at airports, and we're lucky we don't have to take off our underpants, too. Hold onto your shoes and shorts for the next few years -- things are going to get weird.

The guy I follow on Twitter(@20Committe, or his new pay-to-play page @TheSpyBrief) wrote about Tillerson gonna leave at least a week ago.

FWIW, he also wrote that DT, with his meeting with NK, is doing exactly what Kim wants. Superfluously, that NK feels its nuke program moves the country up a notch to be seated at the Big Kids Table, instead of being treated like the pesky little cousin forced to sit a gatherings with the pre-school aged kids even as they are nearing teenage years.

My own opinion, based on what I read, is that - if you believe NK is being supported with their nuke program via Russia, which I do - DT had no choice but to meet with NK; he was directed to. And it's a set-up for a no-win situation.

WTF ?????? Who knows?????

The US and Israel plan to use secretly developed tactical nuclear weapons to decapitate Syria. These weapons were developed since 1994 and were produced and deployed using budgeted funded supposedly intended to modernize the B61 nuclear bomb. They include “salted” nuclear weapons with one kiloton charges, very small, that will blind Russian radar and take down Russian communications in Syria.

Trump just fired Secretary of State Tillerson in order to push this forward. Tillerson has been warned to stay silent or be murdered.

In the runup to the planned attack, two Russian planes were downed, one in Syria, one in Russia, part of of a plan to influence the Russian elections. Trump has been told Russia won’t respond because of the upcoming election.

The plan is to take place in the next 36 hours, beginning with a massive missile attack on Damascus and US and Israeli air strikes to decapitate Syria and kill President Assad. The propaganda war against Syria, hyped to the max over the last few days, is the “set up.

The US has been ferrying planes into the region, into Israel and Jordan in particular for the strike including secretly deploying at least one entire wing of F35s and over 70% of the still operable F22 aircraft (around 150 are airworthy) in the entire US inventory.

I'm not sure what to expect at this point. Israel is basically a nation with first-world weapons playing by third-world rules. God only know what they'll do. I hope it's "not decapitate Syria," but who knows. The US nuked space for the heck of it in the 1960s (see "Starfish Prime").
