If you're on the front lines and lost in the fog, just head towards the sound of gunfire and you'll be headed in the right direction.

It's not something they actually care about at all and first rate cognitive dissonance is a fundamental requirement of that element.

This.

It's not about women in power. It's about Democrat women in power.

Just like none of the Marches this past January were about "get out the vote" they were only about "get out the Democrat vote.

I for one am enjoying the fact that things are being done differently for a change.

Yup, I gotta agree with you on this...I got North Korea to the table with you...next up--China and the Soviets....Hmmmmmm, who'd be good for this evil dirt gathering job? Replacements?

Next up: 'Bestseller'. After that, the 'Rex and Hillary' Tour--"What went Wrong". Next week it'll be someone else with their head on the block. It's truly almost scary-comical...

PLEASE TAKE NOTE - KidA espoused a non liberal view.

This should lay waste to the notion that he is a progressive, bleeding heart scooter riding fag.

right. feminists and campus liberals don't like pro-war and pro-military women in power at IC agencies. NGA had a female director.

Mieke Eoyang, a former Democratic House Intelligence Committee aide agrees that Haspel is a torture-er

A prominent Hillary Clinton supporter by the name of "The Washington Post" says that Haspel is tied to interrogation measures widely condemned as torture


These democrats are talking to USA Today, The Times, The Post, NPR, Bloomberg, and anyone else that will listen. Even the 'dot.gov' web site the dems use for the juDiciary c0mmitte decided to release a statement because

Nancy Pelosi felt the nomination of Rex Tillerson "sends a disturbing signal" because she claimed Tillerson had a cozy relationship with the Kremlin.

Nancy Pelosi now feels that firing Tillerson "sets a profoundly disturbing precedent" because apparently Tillerson was very tough on his aforementioned buddies in the Kremlin.

Well gee I cannot wait to hear her spin the Russian connections of Mike Pompeo.

I dont know how Nancy Pelosi is able to breath considering how far up her ass her head is...
...even when it isnt stuck up her ass, there is still no oxygenated blood getting to the top half of that scary looking head she is carrying around

Easy to see why Tillerson had to go...when you can't be taken seriously as backing the aims of your boss, you're no good in that role. For any woes people have, President Trump should have the cabinet he chooses so long as they aren't grossly unqualified.

Though if I were him, I'd of saved this firing for at least 24 hours. He may have some election results he'd rather people be distracted from here in a bit, and this news would have done it easily.
