      Folks you have to realize that TREX has done his job but we are about to enter into a completely different phase where trade negotiations are everything for the foreseeable future. Our President is realizing that the Democrats in the Senate aren’t going to vote for his Infrastructure Bill. They are proposing raising taxes in order to fund a $1 Trillion dollar Infrastructure plan. DACA is on the shelf for over a year before the SC hears the case and rules on it (June 2019).

      Our President has the funding for our military over the next two years. He also has high stack negotiations with North Korea that are going to play themselves out throughout the year. He needs a person running his State Department that is all in!

      TREX is no longer that man. He questioned our President about pulling out of the Iran Deal. He questioned our President for getting us out of the Paris Accord. He didn’t think our President should recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel. He didn’t think our President should meet right now with Kim Jung-un.

      Also TRex is a Globalist! He oversaw one of the largest Global Corporations in Exxon Mobile. Our President is all in when it comes to trade and needs his SoS on the same page whenever he meets with foreign leaders and his counterparts.

      If our President gets the trade situation handled by cutting the deficit from $800 billion to $300-$400 billion a year with us picking up the slack, you are talking about yearly real GDP in the range of 6%+ year in and year out.

      Lets enjoy the hell out of the ride!

      Here is what our President is getting with Mike Pompeo:

        I am not surprised one bit about the turnover rates w/ our Pres’ staffing. I’ve said this a long time ago, this is his leadership and management style. He has the talent to put right people in the right situation and at the right time. When an objective is achieved, he’d move on to the next “asset”. Also, I truly believe, on the job training is over, he starts to do the things that he really wants to do and he needs the right supporting cast in helping him to accomplish those objectives and tasks. One thing for sure, it is never a dull moment w/ this Pres. He is not only shifting the paradigm in the traditional politics modus operandi but the way how people think, which is much more important in combating the country full of sheep.

        Fle., agree.

        TRex is a globalist. That’s what you get w/large international corp/wall st. big whigs. Let’s hope Trump does not appoint Larry Kudlow to replace Cohn. Kudlow is not on the same page w/Trump re. fair trade and tariffs. Kudlow loves him some unfair globalist wall street trade and would be a disaster in the WH. I did not dislike TRex, but was never overly excited about him. He just never seemed to be all in w/Trump’s agenda or a Nationalist agenda. Seems like these SOS critters (Rice/Hillary?Kerry) all think they are God’s gift to us peasants.

        I’m sure there was a lot of ass kissing of globalists and foreign leaders while CEO of Exxon. Trump is not in the ass kissing business. He’s in the ass kicking business. TRex didn’t fit in once the agenda was in place. He may have been OK for a transition, but once the agenda was set, he was just not on board. I don’t see that he accomplished much. The Omama/Hillary?Kerry SOS is still intact. He should have cleaned it up, one way or another. If you can’t fire them, you can sure transfer and reassign them to outer mongola or Siberia.

        Thank you TRex for your limited service, but we want a 100% Trump agenda supporter. You are either all in or you are all out. Don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya.

        I was always curious why President Trump believed Tillerson was the “best” choice for State that he could make at the time early last year (actually at the end of 2016), since Tillerson was well-known to hold those various other policy positions that were in direct conflict with Trump’s. Obviously Pres. Trump wanted something specific from Tillerson; I guess I’ll eventually figure out exactly what that was.

      I don’t look at it as good or bad. Tillerson had a job, the Mideast. He completed his job well. Now time for a new crew for a new job. In that sense, it’s good, because it means Trump is moving along on his timeline.

      Trump is a builder. This is just the next step on the critical path. We’re finished pouring and setting the foundation. Now it’s time for the steel.

      First step was stabilizing the Mideast, because we were hemorrhaging money there. Next step is China, NoKo, the BRICs and the trade imbalance. New job. New crew. No need for drama.

      Tillerson was still stuck in the Demolition phase for the State Department: Too little, too slow.

      Mike Pompeo has an intimate understanding of what’s going on in all of the world’s key countries and what needs to change to build enduring Foundations with partners around the world (Defense-Energy-Trade).

      Most importantly, the Pompeo COMPLETELY REFRAMES how to pursue future relationships in the eyes of America’s Fake Allies (EU), Geopolitical Rivals (China-Russia) and Rogue States / Terrorists (North Korea, Iran, Pakistan, Taliban, etc.).

        That is entirely up to the Congress whose authority comes from Advice and Consent in the Constitution. The concept of hearings is a post-Constitutional construct which is how they choose to exercise their Constitutional authority. It is totally arbitrary and of their choosing.

        They can demand a new round of hearings or they can skip hearings entirely and wave him in if they choose. They can even pass a law stating that Presidents no longer need confirmation of appointed officers at all ( this is specifically provided for in the Constitution ) in which case they would be granting permanent Consent, but don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen. The most dangerous place on Earth is getting in between a Congress-person and a camera.

        It all depends on what the Congress thinks of the President. If they hate him they can male life miserable. Radical Republicans did it to Andrew Johnson, and with a few more added critters they would do it to Trump as well.

      We can’t know now, but I’m willing to bet a deal was made with Tillerson by someone. From what I understand, he didn’t really make a huge impact on the State Department as the president wanted — that was to get rid of the extraneous layers of personnel which comprise the deep state. In short, I think Tillerson was compromised somehow and was acting in a subversive way.

        He did say in his parting speech that “the world needs the diplomats at the State dept.”
        It was across the bottom of the screen on FOX News. I did not watch the whole thing. Busy.
        Well the “world” may need them, but the “MAGA agenda” does not.

        So let those diplomats apply for jobs at the United Nations. With the neocon agenda that has been prevalent there since circa 1990, I presume most of the people there are complicit with that agenda. If there are any that are not, I am sure they made their viewpoints heard over the years. Those are probably the ones to keep.

        Just like with NAFTA, tariffs, trade, etc. these people keep clamoring for doing the same thing and they expect different results by just applying a little “tweaking”. No, it is time to get out the pressure washer and clean house there at the State department.

        Remember, the whole cadre of those “diplomats”, with their ilk at the Council on Foreign Relations, TLC, etc. threatened to blacklist ANYONE who dared get on the “Trump Train” way back in the primaries.

      Just keep this in mind. Many high level executive type pass through the revolving door of high government office. Think in terms of Rumsfeld or Dick Cheney. They command industry then move into government office to affect policy for their previous industries and future industries and then exit service and get hired on immediately to a company where he did favors as a government official.

      All that to point out that Tillerson was a globalist in the sense that his company was a global company. He necessarily viewed the world through that prism and likely thinks “make the world great” is the way forward.

      I think Tillerson was a serious man but his view of the world was globalist by his very nature.

          I pay little attention to any of the Cabinet picks – most of it is noise and my opinion wouldn’t mean a thing. I figure the President does what he needs to do (and that’s a very good thing) and at this time, in this place, he is doing what he thinks he should do. The media can go pound sand, but I’m grateful that this President doesn’t have incompetent people running the show. Each has their strengths and their weaknesses.

Businessmen are fundamentally averse to armed conflict. Real Military men almost relish it. Trump’s more of a military man than a businessman, deep down.

        TY Johnathan, I received a News Flash when I read your post.

        Trump is more like a Roman General. What did Roman Generals and Legions do when not in military conflict? Governed their territory, yes, but mainly they built things, with building skills of the highest order. Roads, bridges, ports, structures for commerce and military defense, marvelous aqueducts… Romans even built a Wall.

        The analogy breaks down after you go thru the positive aspects of generals and emperors of Rome. Trump is not guilty of every wrong thing Rome ever did. He is American. The British Empire was rather like the Romans. Trump is better than the Brits by far.

          The analogy is spot on. We just haven’t had men like Trump in public office since the turn of the century, Ike and JFK being exceptions. But they’ve always been there- in the military, business and sports. It’s no surprise that a number of veterans are running for public office, and more business leaders as well. The lawyer turned politician days are waning. We are actually more like the Roman Empire than the UK ever was. They were really just merchants with a better navy than a couple of rivals. Our wars overturned entire geopolitical, cultural systems, especially WWI and II, even though our physical role in I was small in comparison. Our financial resources actually won that war. And we didn’t actually seek conquest or invasion.

Regrettably TREX was a globalist who ran once of the largest global corporations in the world (Exxon Mobile). Mike Pompeo get or President and is in agreement with everything he wants to accomplish. 2018 is going to be an incredible year on the trade front and North Korea front!

        I agree with you, fle – with trade – the stakes are higher – sad this had to happen – but, as with any ‘corporation’ – one needs to tow the company line – trust and loyalty are imperative – if the CEO says ‘no’ to the ‘Climate Accord’ and the ‘Iranian Deal’ – he means ‘no’ – not maybe – or that it is ‘negotiable’ – President Trump is not one to go back on his word – you should know that.

        I liked Tillerson – he did a lot of things right – but, like Cohn – he did one thing wrong – he miscalculated the resolve of a man who practically took an oath against ‘globalism’ – a man on a mission of reciprocity – not inequality – both the ‘Climate Accord’ and the ‘Iranian Deal’ were against the interests of the American people – economically – they were raw deals!

        I pray you and your family will find peace with your departure – and that God will bless you in your future endeavors – we are grateful for what you have done for America – and thank you for your service.

            We elected Donald Trump, a superior project manager for POTUS.
            Project managers bring in the skills needed for the stage that the project(s) are at.
            You don’t keep the crew that put the foundation to the building in, on the job while the drywall crew is finishing up their phase.

            With this in mind, and how fast Rocket Boy wants to sign a peace treaty with Trump, this is absolutely no time for the distraction of an underling that has other ideas of how to get the job done. Donald wants to put this festering mess away for good! He has far greater plans in view as his goal. Think Euchre here: Donald wants to Trump this trick!

            I”m sure that if T-Rex was in the same position as POTUS, and an underling was distracting with other ideas on how to get the job done, at a very critical time, he would do the same thing… Fire the distraction ASAP.

              Maybe these leftist ideologues can’t look in a mirror and understand,
              Rocket man is them. The evil he brutally inflicts on his country,
              isn’t any different than the left wishes on middle Americans.
              If the Communist Left knew they could get away with it? It would already have happened in the last 8 years. The 2nd amendment protects us from letting that happen.

              President Trump will attempt to isolate North Korea from harming other free countries and let Kim Jong Un continue his tyrannical reign on his people.

              Is that inhumane, maybe. But he will not be able to stop civilization from infecting his population to a point of having themselves a pig roast, with Un as the Entree’.

    Michael Savage has completely bought in to the narrative and opened his show by slamming Trump for the way he fired Tillerson. He just feels the need to be a contrarian. He’s so predictable, I switched over to Hannity about 10 seconds into his rant. I just can’t stand Savage when he gets like this. I find it extremely boring.

        I had to pull out of Savag’s show also because of his toxic behavior. I am not willing to join him on the roller coaster for my own sanity.
        These outbursts of his are his problem not mine I value my inner peace to much.

        I too cannot listen to more than a few seconds of him before I have to switch the station. He is so overbearing. I actually heard him take credit for our victory. He claims he “got Trump elected.” I heard him say that and it confirmed everything I suspected him to be.

        Savage can’t get over the feeling of being scorned by Trump. This egomaniac thinks he was singularly responsible for getting Trump elected and now Trump won’t give him the time of day. When Savage is on his game, he has excellent analysis capabilities. But most of the time he sounds like a raving lunatic. I hardly ever listen to him, and when I do I have to turn him off after about 15 minutes.

          It’s so stupid and petty. Roger Stone is the same way. I met at a gathering of Trump supporters a few months back and his complaint was that “oh he doesn’t need me anymore. They are keeping him isolated from us. He doesn’t know what’s going on”. I just smiled and said “He doesn’t seem isolated to me. He is getting his agenda enacted”. He sulked and turned to another person.
          What? They expected him to call them everyday and have deep policy discussions with them or something? These people are too full of themselves and their imagined importance.

      joeknuckles, I have gotten to the point that I go to the music button because Savage is becoming more of a savage. Sometimes has good stuff but lately for the last several months is a naysayer on so much and repeats, repeats, etc. until you are tired of his ranting and raving. I like Rush, and even can listen now to Levin since he let his dislike of Trump slide away. He does have some good stuff and since he is not yelling as much as before, I can listen to while driving. At least, however, we get some real news from them and that is a good thing. By the way, since I didn’t listen to Savage, did he finally decide to run or not for the senate. He would certainly wake them up!

      Savage is a #RegretTrumper. So far I’ve had to quit Savage, Limbaugh, Larry Kudlow, and even a tech podcast, TWIT-TV because I can only take so much of their B.S. I also quit the GOP after 40 years because nothing spells loser like the acronym GOP.

  47. It’s only 12:11 here on the west coast and I need a drink. I loved T-Rex. Was shocked when I turned on the TV this morning. Almost couldn’t get ready to go to work on-time. Alas, this too shall pass. While I’ve disagreed with Trump on some of his bombastic and outrageous speeches and tweets, I’ve learned my lesson. Ultimately our President is correct.

      President Trump isn’t bombastic at all. He’s just not PC and Rex undermined him with European leaders on the Iran deal, plus he believes in Junk Science Global Warming and hasn’t drained the Swamprats from the corrupt State Department. He needs ppl that will back his agenda, not go against it.

      President Donald J. Trump is fighting against against a powerful adversary. He puts the people he needs where he needs them, when he needs them, to do the job he needs them to do.

      I was once concerned by the churn, but now I see it for what it is, a very effective strategy. Get the right person who can utilize their skills to achieve the results desired. Get them out before they can get co-opted or burned out. Smart, but the complete antithesis to the way the swamp usually works.

    Some time ago I heard Pompeo saying the same crap about…. Russia is bad… and Israel is perfect …..as I have heard over and over again. That is what I am tired of. I hope Pompeo does not have that kind of “let’s go to war “mentality as I have heard from moron Nikki Haley. My comments are not meant to offend anyone but I do remember turning to another channel when I heard Pompeo trash talking Russia.

      Give winky a break. He is correct. Pompeo is a war monger. Just wait, you will see. There are many problems with his ‘view’ on the world that mean he is not a rationalist but more resembles a neocon. I think its unfair to launch into the lefty tactic of ‘vlad vlad, russia russia’ line every time someone here disagrees with your thinking. If you want to have a rational debate, you need to stay open minded and alert. The main thing – is don’t be a groupie blindly believing everything is heaven scented. Trump is brilliant, but his field of options is slim and he has made some big mistakes in his choices due to being misinformed by those around him. He is a risk taker though, and will ‘give things a spin’ because he is able to bring in the axe if he feels its not working out, most times. Possibly not so with the DOJ problem though.
