White House Closing Down War Crimes Office After Being Accused Of War Crimes:

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Admits US Policy of Regime Change for Iran

Sec. of State Tillerson Admits US Policy of Regime Change for Iran:

In case there was any doubt, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has just confirmed that official U.S. policy towards Iran includes regime change, Think Progress reports

During a Wednesday hearing before the House Foreign Affairs Committee regarding the 2018 State Department budget, Tillerson was asked whether or not the U.S. supports regime change in Iran. He replied affirmatively, stating that U.S. policy is driven by relying on “elements inside of Iran” to bring about a “peaceful transition of that government.”

Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) also asked Tillerson if the government would sanction the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) – a powerful entity inside Iran.

“They are doing bad things throughout the world, on behalf of terrorism and destroying human rights of many people,” Poe said, referring to the IRGC.

Tillerson: ‘Iran’s Provocative Actions Threaten the United States’

Tillerson: ‘Iran’s Provocative Actions Threaten the United States’:

It’s all coming together now. All inside Trump’s 1st 100 days in office, we can clearly see where his administration is heading toward — all out war. It’s fun and games now, up until when the draft is reinstated and your ANTIFA fighting skills are put to the test inside of Tehran.

Incredulously, our Sec. of State, Rex Tillerson, just did a presser, announcing the Trump administration was doing a ‘comprehensive review’ on Iran, followed by a lot of saber rattling.

“The Trump administration is currently conducting across the entire government a review of our Iran policy … an unchecked Iran has the potential to follow the same path as North Korea and take the world along with it. The United States is keen to avoid a second piece of evidence that strategic patience is a failed approach.”

The entire speech was filled with ridiculous anecdotal evidence, ‘proving’ how evil Iran was — such as a photograph of a bomb scrawled with ‘Death to Israel’ on it. Clearly, that sort of graffiti and hate speech is unacceptable. We ought to go with war with them now.

Amid attempts to “clarify areas of sharp difference,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov blasted the Trump administration’s “ambiguous and contradictory” foreign policy at the start of talks with Tillerson in Moscow Wednesday calling the demand for the Kremlin to abandon Assad “absurd.” Furthermore, he warned Tillerson that Russia “believes it’s fundamentally important not to let these actions happen again.”

US Ambassador Nikki Haley To UN: “Regime Change In Syria Is Now A Top Priority For Trump” – #WW3


US Ambassador To UN: “Regime Change In Syria Is Now A Top Priority For Trump”:

The US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, who has done a remarkable job of continuing the diplomatic tone set by her predecessor Samantha Power, said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” which will air in full on Sunday, that regime change in Syria as one of the Trump administration’s top priorities in Syria.  Her statement was a complete U-turn from what she said just over a week ago, when she told a group of reporters that the US was “no longer focused on getting Assad out.”

In her CNN interview, Haley also said that defeating the Islamic State, pushing Iranian influence out of Syria, and the ouster of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad are top priorities for Washington.

Tillerson Warns Russia “Coalition Steps Are Underway To Remove Assad” – #WW3

Tillerson: “I think further it’s very important that the Russian government consider carefully their continued support of the Assad regime.


Tillerson Warns Russia “Coalition Steps Are Underway To Remove Assad”:

VIX was being crushed and stocks were leaking higher just as planned, until Secretary of State Rex Tillerson hit the tape beating war drums and announcing a new US policy on Syria, just a week after he said the US had no interest in removing the Syrian president.

Specifically, Tillerson said that steps are underway to remove Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and that the U.S. is considering an “appropriate response” to the Syrian government’s alleged use of chemical weapons.

“The process by which Assad would leave is something that requires an international community effort both to first defeat ISIS within Syria, to stabilize the Syrian country to avoid further civil war and then to work collectively with our partners around the world through a political process that would lead to Assad leaving,” Tillerson said at the news conference in Palm Beach, Fla.

Wave Of State Department Personnel Resign, Are Fired As Tillerson Takes Control

FYI.


Wave Of State Department Personnel Resign, Are Fired As Tillerson Takes Control:

Update: according to a CNN report – so as always take with lots of salt – the story has shifted materially, because according to two senior administration officials, it wasn’t a resignation by the State Department officials, but more of a termination: “the Trump administration told four top State Department management officials that their services were no longer needed as part of an effort to “clean house” at Foggy Bottom.”

Patrick Kennedy, who served for nine years as the undersecretary for management, Assistant Secretaries for Administration and Consular Affairs Michele Bond and Joyce Anne Barr, and Ambassador Gentry Smith, director of the Office for Foreign Missions, were sent letters by the White House that their service was no longer required, the sources told CNN.

China warns of ‘devastating consequences’ if US blocks its plans for artificial islands

China warns of ‘devastating consequences’ if US blocks its plans for artificial islands:

THE US has been warned of potentially “devastating consequences” if it blocks China from islands it has built in contested waters in the South China Sea, according to Chinese media reports.

And in more inflammatory comments, prospective US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was told he better watch his mouth, after the former ExxonMobil CEO told US senators that he would seek to deny Beijing access to the artificial islands.

China’s actions in the region are comparable to Russia’s invasion of Crimea, he said, a comment that did not sit well with the nuclear-armed Asian giant.

Rex Tillerson To Sever All Ties With Exxon, Will Receive $182 Million


Rex Tillerson To Sever All Ties With Exxon, Will Receive $182 Million:

Ahead of his confirmation as Donald Trump’s proposed secretary of state, Exxon Mobil and the company’s former chairman and CEO Rex Tillerson, have agreed to sever all ties to comply with conflict-of-interest requirements.

If his appointment is confirmed Tillerson is set for a generous payday: as Reuters reports the value of more than 2 million deferred Exxon Mobil shares (worth about $182 million at Tuesday’s closing price) that Tillerson would have received over the next 10 years will be transferred to an independently managed trust, the company said in a statement. The share awards will be canceled and Tillerson will also surrender entitlement to more than $4.1 million in cash bonuses, scheduled to pay out over the next three years, and other benefits, Exxon Mobil said.

Separately, Tillerson also committed to the State Department that, if confirmed, he would sell the more than 600,000 Exxon shares he currently owns, the company said. It was not clear if the transaction would be exempt from all capital gains tax, although according ho historical precedent the answer is yes.
