Rex Tillerson Removed as Secretary of State…
Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 3/13/2018 8:43:09 PM

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson did an excellent job representing the professional and deliberate diplomatic approach of the U.S. and President Trump administration. (Snip) Having said that, as President Trump stated earlier today, there was also more than a tinge of disunity between the advocated views of Tillerson and the views of the Commander in Chief toward economic national security. At times the fractures between policy perspectives were visible. Over time those differences became more obvious. As Secretary of the DoS Rex Tillerson supported the Paris Climate Treaty; the President did not;

Rather than being a slapdash media put-together, this is a well reasoned analysis of President Trump’s and Secretary Tillerson’s philosophies. They were bound to clash.

Unapologetic economic power is where the views of President Trump and Secretary Tillerson parted. T-Rex projected more of a humble and altruistic approach; almost seeming embarrassed at times to participate in discussions of economic conflict and confrontation. Indeed it often seemed awkward for Mr. Tillerson as he carries a less confrontational and more servant-minded constitution.

While he is not a pure ‘globalist’ per se’, Secretary Tillerson was less deliberate toward achieving territorial economic goals as a method to achieve geopolitical national security. On matters surrounding these issues, T-Rex was more Wall Street than Main Street; more traditionally republican than change-agent populist.

I may be in favor of most of Trump´s policies, but am under no illusion as to his coarseness. I think he has little "human-relations" skill in terms of organizational leadership. Were he my direct boss, the Secret Service would have to be present at any meeting to prevent black eyes. I say this as having survived working under a short Napoleon wannabe who I was capable of heaving through his 5th story office windows...and boy I was tempted!

Agree that this is a very objective and fair analysis, both of Tillerson and of the core reason for the firing. He was a very intelligent and competent SOS in the mold of professional statesmen of earlier eras. The problem was he and the President disagreed on several vital issues. That couldn´t continue.

Concur with #3 and #4. POTUS listens to pro and con discussion. Once the decision is made by POTUS, that is the program. Understanding the boss´s vision and mindset is key to success and position longevity.

Just support Pres. Trump!.. he is a wise, generous, dedicated American. He sees what is and tells us the truth. He also has some excellent supporters in young Reps Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan. We can rejoice that there are such admirable patriots!! Tillerson was too much into his own career, like most politicians.

Tillerson, because of forcing the Boy Scouts to admit homosexuals was the Trump appointment who I disagreed with the most.

Now we find that he was in favor or the Iran disaster, was soft on illegal aliens, and supported the hamstringing of the USA with the horrifically bad Paris Accord.

Tillerson is a globalist, and a leftist to a significant extent and I am glad he is gone.

He was a bad choice from the beginning, sorry. He was not on the same wavelength as Trump and in the end it didn’t work out. Michael Savage was melting down over his firing by Trump. Get over it already Dr Savage. If it ain’t working it ain’t working. With NoKo on the table and the Iran deal melting down its time to get a new Sec of State on the job. Plus TRex is a global warmest and Trump is not. Obviously things have to change. And they just did. For the good.

The FBI agent who was removed from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election for sending anti-Trump texts intends to testify before the House Judiciary Committee and any other congressional committee that asks, his attorney said in a letter made public Sunday. Peter Strzok, who was singled out in a recent Justice Department inspector general report for the politically charged messages, would be willing to testify without immunity, and he would not invoke his Fifth Amendment rights in response to any question, his attorney, Aitan Goelman, said in an interview Sunday. Strzok has become a special target of

The Justice Department Inspector General’s report on the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s unsecured personal email server laid bare a widespread pattern of conduct that “cast a cloud” over the FBI. The report incites the inference that the Bureau is a severely corrupted organization, tainted and warped by unconstitutional ambitions to meddle in electoral matters. Although Inspector General Michael Horowitz asserted he lacked “documentary and testamentary evidence” to prove political bias ruled in making decisions of great political consequence, clearly he did not mean bias was not present.

Today marks the third anniversary of Donald John Trump descending down his golden elevator and into the presidential race. A victorious warrior, he won the battle and then waged the war. He had the right message -- "Make America Great Again" -- and the right battle plan in taking the battle for votes directly to the people, using the vast wealth of celebrity he built over the decades. The press got him absolutely wrong. The press and the experts beclowned themselves. And they have not stopped beclowning themselves. The Daily News in New York is obsessed with talk about "mindless zombies" and clowns.

General David Petraeus was arrested for leaving his classified schedule on mistress Paula Broadwell’s nightstand. Kristian Saucier was arrested for taking a classified photograph on a submarine.

One of the interesting aspects of the IG report is the documented use of personal email by participants within the FBI “small group” Mid-Year-Exam (MYE) team. [pg 424] One of those documented examples involves FBI Agent Peter Strzok downloading the content of the sealed Anthony Weiner Indictment, October 29, 2016, to his personal email address. Unauthorized extraction of a ‘sealed SDNY indictment‘, and transmission to a non-secure system, is a felony. (From summary pg vii) We found that Strzok used his personal email accounts for official government business on several occasions, including forwarding an

The state of Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation projects in Chicago´s South Side neighborhood around the Obama Presidential Center site, $199 million of which will fall directly on the shoulders of Illinois taxpayers. Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law the legislature´s budget on June 4, which included $174 million for road work in and around Jackson Park — where the 235-foot-tall building would be located — and another $50 million to renovate an above-ground rail stop two miles away. “Bringing the Obama Presidential Center to Chicago took leadership and vision, and we are gratified that our

Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said it was “obnoxious to our Constitution” to put former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort behind bars prior to a trial. “He has never been convicted of anything. He is as innocent as you and I,” Dershowitz said in an interview on MSNBC on Friday. “And the idea of locking somebody up before a trial is so obnoxious to our Constitution that every civil libertarian should be up in arms.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. — Tiger Woods needs a reality check. “Absolutely,’’ he said Friday at the U.S. Open when asked if he’s convinced he can win another major championship, 10 years after winning his last. The reporter’s follow-up question: Why? “Have you seen the way I’ve been swinging?’’ Woods replied with a toothy smile. Yes, Tiger, and we’ve seen the way you’ve been putting. Absolutely he’ll win another major, at the age of 42, with his 155-foot yacht looking far more impressive than his golf game this week? It sounded more like delusion than confidence. Once among the world’s finest putters, Tiger now ranks among the

Janique Walker knows the cost of a split second. Her younger brother, 17-year-old Charles Macklin, was killed while trying to steal a Jeep from a Chicago fire lieutenant on the West Side last August. The lieutenant had left the Jeep running, and Macklin jumped behind the wheel. The lieutenant ran in front of the Jeep and shouted, “Get out,” according to a police report. When Macklin began pulling away, the lieutenant drew his gun and fired through the open driver’s side window, hitting the teen in the chest.

You wonder why Fox News is Number One in cable? It´s because CNN, MSNBC, NBC and the rest are so relentlessly negative about Donald Trump they force people to watch Fox to find out the truth about the growing economy or the historically low unemployment rates for blacks. Take this week´s Singapore Summit. No matter what President Trump accomplished in Singapore in his face-to-face meeting with North Korea´s Kim Jong Un, for Joe, Mika and their fellow foreign policy experts in the media, it was not enough. Or it was too much. Or Trump was naive or stupid. Or he gave away too much. Or he didn't ask "Little Rocket Man"

Christian leaders across the country have taken issue with Attorney General Jeff Session´s usage of the Bible as justification of his policy that is separating thousand of immigrant families at the border. Sessions cited Romans 13 to attempt to justify how separating families was ordained by God because ´orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.´ For religious leaders who still weren´t pleased with his usage of scripture, he offered them to ´speak up strongly to urge anyone who would come here to apply lawfully, to wait their turn and not violate the law.´

Phil Mickelson´s 48th birthday took a stunning turn at the US Open on Saturday when he stopped a putt from rolling off the 13th green. Clearly at the end of his tether after a shocking run of bogeys in his third round, the much-decorated American embarrassed himself when another putt rolled past the hole. Instead of waiting to see where it finished, he stopped the ball with his putter and knocked it back whence it came. (Photos/Video) It meant an automatic two-shot penalty and he ended up with a 10 for the hole. ´That´s absolutely amazing, that´s Phil basically giving
