Rex Tillerson just met in secret with the House Foreign Affairs Committee to talk about his time with Trump

Published

on

Former Trump Secretary of State Rex Tillerson just met in secret with leaders and staff on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The subject was President Donald Trump, according to an exclusive report at The Daily Beast.

“Tillerson’s arrival at the Capitol was handled with extreme secrecy,” The Daily Beast’s Erin Banco reports. “No media advisories or press releases were sent out announcing his appearance. And he took a little noticed route into the building in order to avoid being seen by members of the media.”

During his tenure Tillerson called President Trump a “moron,” and repeatedly refused to deny he had done so.

After Trump’s infamous “both sides” remarks defending neo-Nazis who attended the Charlottesville rally, Tillerson said that the State Department represents America’s values, and the President of the United States speaks for himself.

Tillerson has said he spent a lot of time with President Trump, yet he has been surprisingly absent from the administration’s Mueller controversies. Trump fired Tillerson on March 31, 2018, but didn’t tell him directly. The former Secretary of State learned he was unemployed via Twitter.

In May of 2018 Tillerson took a “thinly-veiled shot” at Trump, as the AP reported.

“If we do not as Americans confront the crisis of ethics and integrity in our society among our leaders in both public and private sector … then American democracy as we know it is entering its twilight years,” he told graduates of the Virginia Military Institute in a commencement speech.

Chuck Todd’s terrible interview with fabricator-in-chief Trump snapped the tether: From here on out there’s no truth

Published

Nothing will ever be the same again. Donald Trump’s unwavering disregard for reality and his acts of violence against the truth are rapidly metastasizing into the marrow of the national debate. I'm not sure we have enough heroes in this country to successfully extricate Trumpism and toss it into the biohazard waste bin of history, along other embarrassments in America's mixed record.

The very fabric of right and wrong in America is disintegrating as one of our two major parties, with some crucial help from Russia, has convinced four out of every 10 voters that verifiable truth is nothing more than a fake news plot against them and their beloved Fifth Avenue Clampetts. As a result, half of the political debate, from the local level on up, is built exclusively on wrongness — on total nonsense, invented by Trump himself along with his propaganda cable network.

Trump considering withdrawal from 68-year-old treaty with Japan: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump has been privately talking about withdrawing from the postwar defense treaty with Japan, according to three sources familiar with the matter.

Trump is telling confidants the treaty is unfair to the U.S. because it promises to help if Japan was ever attacked, but doesn't require Japan to come to America's defense, the sources told Bloomberg.

So far, the president hasn't taken any step toward pulling out of the treaty, which was signed in 1951, and administration officials insist that move would be highly unlikely.

Rep. Ted Lieu: Impeachment is coming — and so is a Democratic president

Published

on

Donald Trump recently called “impeachment” a “dirty, filthy, disgusting word,” but his continued stonewalling of legitimate congressional oversight requests are moving more and more House Democrats to embrace that “filthy” concept. That was the very point made by Rep. Ted Lieu of California, a progressive Democrat who sits on the House Judiciary Committee during our recent conversation on “Salon Talks.” That committee would be the starting point for an actual impeachment inquiry of the president.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
