Rex Tillerson Removed as Secretary of State…
Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 3/13/2018 8:43:09 PM

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson did an excellent job representing the professional and deliberate diplomatic approach of the U.S. and President Trump administration. (Snip) Having said that, as President Trump stated earlier today, there was also more than a tinge of disunity between the advocated views of Tillerson and the views of the Commander in Chief toward economic national security. At times the fractures between policy perspectives were visible. Over time those differences became more obvious. As Secretary of the DoS Rex Tillerson supported the Paris Climate Treaty; the President did not;

Rather than being a slapdash media put-together, this is a well reasoned analysis of President Trump’s and Secretary Tillerson’s philosophies. They were bound to clash.

Unapologetic economic power is where the views of President Trump and Secretary Tillerson parted. T-Rex projected more of a humble and altruistic approach; almost seeming embarrassed at times to participate in discussions of economic conflict and confrontation. Indeed it often seemed awkward for Mr. Tillerson as he carries a less confrontational and more servant-minded constitution.

While he is not a pure ‘globalist’ per se’, Secretary Tillerson was less deliberate toward achieving territorial economic goals as a method to achieve geopolitical national security. On matters surrounding these issues, T-Rex was more Wall Street than Main Street; more traditionally republican than change-agent populist.

I may be in favor of most of Trump´s policies, but am under no illusion as to his coarseness. I think he has little "human-relations" skill in terms of organizational leadership. Were he my direct boss, the Secret Service would have to be present at any meeting to prevent black eyes. I say this as having survived working under a short Napoleon wannabe who I was capable of heaving through his 5th story office windows...and boy I was tempted!

Agree that this is a very objective and fair analysis, both of Tillerson and of the core reason for the firing. He was a very intelligent and competent SOS in the mold of professional statesmen of earlier eras. The problem was he and the President disagreed on several vital issues. That couldn´t continue.

Concur with #3 and #4. POTUS listens to pro and con discussion. Once the decision is made by POTUS, that is the program. Understanding the boss´s vision and mindset is key to success and position longevity.

Just support Pres. Trump!.. he is a wise, generous, dedicated American. He sees what is and tells us the truth. He also has some excellent supporters in young Reps Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan. We can rejoice that there are such admirable patriots!! Tillerson was too much into his own career, like most politicians.

Tillerson, because of forcing the Boy Scouts to admit homosexuals was the Trump appointment who I disagreed with the most.

Now we find that he was in favor or the Iran disaster, was soft on illegal aliens, and supported the hamstringing of the USA with the horrifically bad Paris Accord.

Tillerson is a globalist, and a leftist to a significant extent and I am glad he is gone.

He was a bad choice from the beginning, sorry. He was not on the same wavelength as Trump and in the end it didn’t work out. Michael Savage was melting down over his firing by Trump. Get over it already Dr Savage. If it ain’t working it ain’t working. With NoKo on the table and the Iran deal melting down its time to get a new Sec of State on the job. Plus TRex is a global warmest and Trump is not. Obviously things have to change. And they just did. For the good.

The crying girl featured in an audio-recording touted by pro-migrant groups was brought to the United States by her mother to escape the poverty of her quiet El Salvador town, according to a Washington Post report. The Post‘s report shows the migrant mother was not fleeing threats and had no grounds for claiming asylum, but was simply following the route taken by her two older sisters who had successfully walked though the weak U.S. border to settle in Houston, Texas. “The standard of living in is higher in the United States for the vast majority in the world, and if poverty becomes the basis for allowing people to immigrate,

Forty-one House Republicans voted against a bill Friday that would have secured funding for President Donald Trump’s border wall, addressed Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and included E-verify, among other conservative provisions. Members voted on an amended version of GOP Reps. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Michael McCaul of Texas’s bill that provided more border security funding, only granted DACA recipients a temporary protected three-year legal status with no pathway for citizenship — which moderate Republicans are fervently asking leadership to provide — and included other features. The bill failed in the House in a 193-231 vote Thursday.

The mother of the crying child featured on the cover of TIME Magazine was previously deported from the United States in 2013, according to ICE. TIME Magazine pasted the image of the young girl crying as President Donald Trump looked down on her, attempting to symbolize the administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy at the border that leads to family separations. The father of the child later revealed that the girl was never separated from the mother and that the child was only briefly set down so that border patrol agents could perform a pat down. The mother also left three other children behind

In the media’s rush to exploit the plight of migrant children this week, the public testimony of Michael Horowitz has been buried or, more likely, ignored by the news media.(Snip)But one reason Horowitz might have punted in his recent report is because he knows the real bombshells are yet to come: He is investigating the FISA warrant on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page; the cozy relationship between Justice and FBI officials and the media, including perks for scoops; ex-FBI Director James Comey’s handling of classified information; and the potential doctoring of official documents. “We’ve got lots of investigations going on,” Horowitz

The Media Misrepresents Pope

From the way the media has reported it, you might think that Pope Francis has condemned the Trump administration — and only the Trump administration — for the crisis at the border. "Pope Francis Rebukes Trump Administration Over Family Separations," headlined Politico. "Pope Francis Condemns Trump´s Family Separation Policy," shouted Vox. The same headlines were virtually parroted one way or another by HuffPo and WaPo. Of course, none of these outlets uttered so much as a peep when the Roman Pontiff compared eugenics abortion to Nazi crimes or affirmed the Church´s doctrine of marriage being between a man and a

If there is one thing we can count on in our age of expert ignorance, it is that experts in their intellectual and moral smugness will offer opinions that, if acted on, would simplify complex issues and therefore harm the national good. Thus, Jessica Henderson Daniel, president of the American Psychological Association (APA), has issued the following statement: The administration’s policy of separating children from their families as they attempt to cross into the United States without documentation is not only needless and cruel, it threatens the mental and physical health of both the children and their caregivers.

An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.
