PURGE ALERT: TRUMP FIRES CRO-MAGNON TILLERSON — REPLACES WITH TOP SPOOK POMPEO

Lots of moving parts here. For one, Rex the Cro-Magnon is likely heading back to the oil barrel to live out the rest of his days lathered in a tar-like substance. Secondly, Trump has appointed the Director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo as the new Secretary of State. Frankly, placing a fucking spook in charge of the State Department is a little much — but then again, Trump is extra.

Lastly, he’s appointed the first woman as top spook at the CIA, Gina Haspel. Previously, Ms. Haspel was Deputy Director and before that she ran a fucking black site in Thailand that specialized in waterboarding and other unsavory interrogation tactics. When she captured Al-Qaeda big chief Zubaydah — he was summarily waterboarded 83 times in a month, then sleep deprived in a large box and had his head smashed against the wall until he lost his left eye. He yielded hardly any useful intelligence while in custody.

Ms. Haspel is the recipient of the George H. W. Bush Award for excellence in counterterrorism.

Casualties of the Trump administration. Add the knuckle dragging ape to the list.

A little background on Pompeo.

    I’ll be happy with the Haspel appointment if they waterboard Hillary at Gitmo.

    Trump replaces some crook who called him a fucking moron with some crook who only privately called him a fucking moron.

    More chess. If Pompeo is on Trump’s cabinet he’ll be easier to fire in the not to distant future.

    Many D chess right there. WTF? CIA in oval office. How does one square this hole? Keep your friends close, enemies closer? Cycle your staff often and quickly so they dont get comfortable and start conspiring? Marxist heads are exploding and blood shooting out of their eyes.

    My God. In just 24 hours one Secretary of State falls down the stairs, and the other gets shoved.

    “Ms. Haspel is the recipient of the George H. W. Bush Award for excellence in counterterrorism.”

    Women are far better at spy craft than men. They can lie while putting on the apron and washing dishes and you would never know it. No way a man could do that and get away with it.

    Netanyahu, on his recent visit, talked Trump into breaking the Iran deal. Prepare for war soon. It is coming.

    THe big question is why.

    It’s been a while sicne he called Trump an idiot, so that’s not the reason. Given the timing, my bet is that Tillerson thought meeting with NK is a bad idea and did not support it. Pompeo probbaly is just intersted in information on NK program so that CIA-paid private contractors know waht targets to hit.

    This turn of events guarantess that we will not end up with any treaty where NK gives up their nukes voluntarily. Long concrete and freeze-dried food…

      Tillerson wasn’t feeling well the other day – maybe he has health problems?

        Usually it is the other way around: people who are no longer wanted are allowed to safe face by resigning with “health problems” or “to spend time with the family.” Execs with *actual* health problems are not fired (that only happens to unprofitable worker bees).

        Pompeo is a Tea Party politician, with no spy or diplomatic experience. In other words, a Trumpster. That leads more credence to the idea that a policy disagreement was the issue.

      Trump cited disagreement over the Iran deal. Netanyahu visited the White House last week and he and Trump made plans on moving forward with Iran (i.e. breaking the deal and likely going to war).

        You’re right, I guess I should have just done some basic research.

        Trump is such an idiot. You could make a case that we shouldn’t have signed the Iran deal in the first palce, but now that we’ve already unforzen their funds and assets, what is the point of dropping out now? So that the UN can no longer send inspectors? Art-of-the-Deal, indeed.

        *This* is the President that is going to negotiate a successful nuclear deal with NK?

    McMaster is next to go. Another man standing in the way of war with Iran.
