Rex Tillerson is asked: ‘Is Putin a war
criminal?’; Marco Rubio says answer
is ‘discouraging’

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor

Sparks flew early in Wednesday’s secretary of state nomination hearing for Rex Tillerson when Republican Sen. Marco Rubio ripped the former ExxonMobil CEO for refusing to say outright that Russian President Vladimir Putin is a “war criminal.” “Is Putin a war criminal?” the Florida Republican asked. “I would not use that term,” Mr. Tillerson said. Mr. Rubio, who expressed skepticism when President-elect Donald Trump first named the former oil executive to be secretary of state, was being closely watched at the hearing. His tough line of questioning suggested he still had trouble with both Mr. Trump and Mr. Tillerson’s approach

The consensus on his condescending, nearly hostile, questioning was that Rubio - like Booker - was grandstanding.

It´s an absurd question to ask someone up for top diplomat. It is a diplomat´s job to work relationships with foreign governments. It´s not "diplomatic" to call someone a war criminal, even if you believe it.

I didn´t expect nor think it appropriate if Rubio had slobbered all over Tillerson and never asked a pertinent question. However, just like Democrats, Rubio pushed the Russia narrative? Rubio proved here he is not over Trump winning the nomination. He is in with the establishment who dearly hope Trump falls flat so they can run next. Its ALL about politics and not the country.

Very dumb question for a Republican Senator to ask a Secretary of State who has to deal with Putin. This is another reason why Rubio didn´t make it as a Presidential candidate.

We dodged a bullet when this little runt was kicked to the curb. He made a bung hole out of himself and I was actually embarrassed for him. My message to Rubio: "Shut up and go away somewhere and try to be invisible." You´ve been given a sedond chance at the table and you´re blowing it big time. You aren´t fit to tie Tillerson´s sneakers."

What a stupid "discouraging" question to ask the next US SecState. If Tillerson was to reply, "yes, Putin is a war criminal," then what? Tillerson would be putting Trump in a corner. If he said "no," that would officially end any ongoing or future investigation into the matter.

Little Rubio made a fool of himself today with no help from Chris Christy.

Some apparently missed Trump’s press conference this morning when he said either they’d get along or they wouldn’t.

Tillerson’s response was well-reasoned. It was not discouraging except to Marquito. Tillerson does not get his facts from the news media as Marquito implied that he should have done in order to respond to Marquito´s liking.

Being on a Senate committee does not teach a person statecraft.

Rubio’s entire attitude was assinine.

By Russian standards, on a scale of 1 to 10 where Stalin was a 10, Vladimir Putin is a 2 at most. He is a serious adversary, but Russia can be managed.

Before the West helped overthrow a freely-elected (though awful) government in Kiev, and before we offered NATO membership to Ukraine, did anyone consider that Kiev was the ancient capital of the Russian Empire? That Russia leases the home port of their Black Sea fleet in Sebastopol, in Crimea, from Ukraine? (Imagine Russia leasing a crucial naval base from a NATO country.) Did the West consider that most people in eastern Ukraine are ethnic Russians? What kind of response did we expect?!?

Trash Putin all you want, in fact he is trusted and respected by most Russians. Russia has always had strong-man governments. Sad but true. However, bear baiting is never a good idea.

What difference does it make if Putin is politically defined as being a "War Criminal" or not?

As long as Putin controls thousands of tactical and strategic nuclear weapons and he registers a very high approval record in Russia it is clear that the USA or any other country can´t do anything about that.

Rubio acted like a petulant little kid today. He made a fool out of HIMSELF, didn´t lay a glove on Tillerson, who had it exactly right.

Even if we are nearly certain that Putin is a war criminal, there is NO POSSIBLE BENEFIT to the United States from calling him that publicly. NONE. We have to deal with the man, gratuitously angering him may be fine if you are a jerk Senator, but it is not helpful if we need to get some cooperation out of Russia. Try to think of the bigger picture.

Grow up, you simple minded, short sighted little checkers-playing idiot! Calling names should have stopped in the 4th grade, but not for Little Marco.

See if you can´t start trying to think a few moves ahead, like in chess. Or course, that takes adult thinking, so may be difficult.

Trump´s Wall Is Already Paid For
American Thinker, by Daniel John Sobieski    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/11/2017 5:06:29     Post Reply
Critics of the border wall proposed by President Trump have said the cost is prohibitive under current budget and economic conditions, that no way is Mexico going to pay for it, and shifting funds away from the TSA, Coast Guard, and FEMA are counterproductive in terms of national security. These criticisms ignore the costs to the U.S. in terms other than money -- increased crime, overtaxed law enforcement, the drain on public resources such as education, medical care, etc., and the driving down of real wages through an endless supply of cheap labor. In fact, thanks in large part to

During a March 2 segment of the program, MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough held out former Kentucky Gov.

He said the press has still been invited to cover Tillerson and there’s a “press logistics component” being worked out to make sure everyone’s accommodated.

Chelsea Clinton is not fascinating. But the repeated insistence that Chelsea Clinton is fascinating . . . is actually rather fascinating. It’s like a giant social experiment, in which everyone who has spent decades building connections to the Clinton political dynasty attempts to make the world see the president’s daughter as someone she isn’t.
