Trump Fires Rex Tillerson and Will Replace Him With C.I.A. Chief Pompeo:

WASHINGTON — President Trump on Tuesday ousted his secretary of state, Rex W. Tillerson, extending a shake-up of his administration, 14 months into his tumultuous presidency, and potentially transforming the nation’s economic and foreign policy.

Mr. Trump announced he would replace Mr. Tillerson with Mike Pompeo, the C.I.A. director and former Tea Party congressman, who forged a close relationship with the president and is viewed as being more in sync with Mr. Trump’s America First credo.

Rex Tillerson: Ex-spy Skripal poisoning ‘clearly came from Russia’ & ‘will trigger response’

Ex-spy Skripal poisoning ‘clearly came from Russia’ & ‘will trigger response’ – Tillerson:

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has thrown his support behind UK allegations that Russia is responsible for the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal in the UK, whether directly or through negligence.

The poisoning is “a really egregious act” and will “certainly trigger a response,” Tillerson told reporters on board an aircraft as he was returning to Washington DC from Nigeria. And, although he admits he does not know whether the Russian government had knowledge of the attack, he has agreed with British investigators that Moscow is “likely responsible.”

Tillerson said that the US has “full confidence” in the investigation carried out by the UK authorities and in the preliminary conclusions they have reached on Russia’s alleged complicity in the former spy’s death. The US diplomat, however, like the UK PM before him, used the word “appears” when attributing the “attempted murder” to Russia and stopped short of providing any new evidence to support the claims.

He used the opportunity to again lash out at Russia for what the US and its allies are pitching as Moscow’s “destabilizing role” in Ukraine and Syria, “and now the UK.” Moscow, Tillerson alleged, ”continues to be an irresponsible force of instability in the world, acting with open disregard for the sovereignty of other states and the life of their citizens.”

Dying North Koreans a sign US diplomatic strategy works, Rex Tillerson says

Dying North Koreans a sign US diplomatic strategy works, Tillerson says:

Signs of starvation and death in North Korea indicate that US diplomatic strategy works fine, says the secretary of state. The objective now is not to let Pyongyang evoke sympathy around the world for its sanctions-induced woes.

The unexpectedly-revealing description of what Rex Tillerson apparently considers successful diplomacy came from his own mouth on Wednesday as he was speaking at Stanford University with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

“The Japanese… have had over a 100 North Korean fishing boats that have drifted into Japanese waters. Two-thirds of the people on those boats have died,” Tillerson said, citing the Japanese delegation that attended a conference in Vancouver, Canada, earlier this week.

He was referring to the regular phenomenon of so-called ‘ghost ships’ from North Korea, which have become stranded on the Japanese coast for years. Last year, a record 104 such cases were reported by Japanese authorities, with some 30 fishermen found dead on arrival. Any survivors usually ask to be returned to their home country, and Japan obliges.

So why are dozens of dead North Koreans a good sign?

Zionist Founded Gatestone Institute: “Is The US State Department Waging “Open War” On The White House?”

Is The US State Department Waging “Open War” On The White House?:

The controversy goes back to the Obama administration’s September 2016 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Israel, which pledged $38 billion in military assistance to Jerusalem over the next decade. The MOU expressly prohibits Israel from requesting additional financial aid from Congress.

Congressional leaders, who said the MOU violates the constitutional right of lawmakers to allocate U.S. aid, awarded Israel an additional $75 million in assistance in the final appropriations bill for fiscal year 2017.

Tillerson had argued that Israel should return the $75 million in order to stay within the limits established by the Obama administration. The effort provoked a strong reaction from Congress, which apparently prompted Tillerson to back down.

Just who really is Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu? (State of the Nation, April 14, 2015):

“If we get caught they will just replace us with persons of the same cloth.  So it doesn’t matter what you do.  America is a Golden Calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the World’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control.  Why?  Because it’s God’s will and America is big enough to take the hit so we can do it again, again and again.  This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves.”

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

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

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is reportedly closing a decades-old office in the State Department that has helped pursue justice for victims of war crimes.

The “Office of Global Criminal Justice” advises the secretary of state on issues surrounding war crimes and genocide. It was established by Bill Clinton’s secretary of state, Madeleine Albright, a woman who barely batted an eyelid while overseeing the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children.

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.

Russia Slams “Absurd” Trump Demands, Warns Tillerson “Don’t Strike Syria Again”

Russia Slams “Absurd” Trump Demands, Warns Tillerson “Don’t Strike Syria Again”:

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.”

Russia pushed back against demands that it abandon Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad over a chemical-weapons attack as Bloomberg reports that the Kremlin said President Vladimir Putin is likely to meet with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

The surprise meeting comes one day after Kremlin officials said the top American diplomat would not meet with the Russian leader during his first official trip to Moscow.

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.
