His lack of confidence is mindbogglingly.

Serious question....Have you spent much time with politicians? From a small town mayor or selectperson, up to the Federal level?

Serious answer - No. What was his excuse before he ran for office? They may all be the same, but some are worse.

Editorial in today's WSJ

“As noted in both Section 232 reports, however, the U.S. military requirements for steel and aluminum each only represent about three percent of U.S. production. Therefore, DoD does not believe that the findings in the reports impact the ability of DoD programs to acquire the steel·or aluminum necessary to meet national defense requirements.”

The Trump Administration has pulled the 232 stunt because it gives the President power to act unilaterally. But its own analysis shows how weak its case is. Steel users should challenge this in court as the unlawful ruse it is.

:o

And all this time, fatty thought our chickenhawks TAATS enforced the law that US military killing thinggiees had to be made with US made products. Where is the great pretend Sen. Mclame on this issue :lol: Simply amazing.....and didn't fatty already post something about RUSSIANS owning the US steel plants anyway?

Why does the Dept. of Defense hate US citizens and its jobs? We give so much of our tax dollars, but the DoD just ignores the Buy American Act (1933). And Trump exec order is mostly ignored?

https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential ... -american/

Thank you miliatary officers....you are SOOOO patriotic :whatever: Why do we keep on giving them so much money? They don't care about their fellow US citizens.

http://www.nwitimes.com/business/steel/ ... 21438.html

The Department of Defense had requested the removal of Buy America provisions

WTF.....fatty and all the other SHAYSIANS are requesting the removal of 80% of the DoD's budget. How about THEM apples.

“The media has been speculating that I fired Rex Tillerson or that he would be leaving soon - FAKE NEWS!"

"THE ART OF FIRING"
(1) Never fire a staffer face to face.
(2) Send a lackey or a navvy to inform the Firee...2 to 3 hours AFTER it's publicly announced.
(3) Firee should be at least 1000 miles away from DD Central when the news breaks.
(4) Tweets and press leaks can be useful tools.
(5) Hold a presser wherein you give all glory and honor to the Firee....without laughing or letting the hoi polloi watch your nose grow.
(6) Any questions, ask Kelly or Huckabuck.
(7) Spell it correctly once and for all.....Stephen Miller NOT Steven Miller.His mommy gave him that name!

Mattis and Mnuchin had a suicide pact with Tillerson. One gets fired, they all walk. Is that still operational?

Well it turns out, someone from the State Department ( and he's been fired) put out a statement that Tillerson became aware of his termination via a Trump tweet..... the real story is.... Kelly told him on Friday. Tillerson supposedly came back from Africa because of sickness... no, he found out he was fired.

That was the rumor. Guess that's going to be tested.

I doubt it, so long as Kelly is COS.

Plus, the pending N Korea deal adds a sense of urgency. I don't see Mattis quitting while that's in play.
I think Kelly & Mattis will be happy with Pompeo at State.

Meanwhile, Vladi is delighted to see the director of our CIA become the SoS. Vladi likes to see those kind of folks move ahead in the world. Does him proud.

Wait, wait: let me guess. This latest firing is just more evidence as to how awesome and amazing Trump is, right?

Did I get it right?

Pompeo is a formidable opponent, one that has been talking in DOPUS' ear from day one. The question is not if, but when, and will he wear the uniform or a $5000 suit like his former boss.

Lost in the Tillerson maelstrom today, I haven't seen anyone post this story:

ICE spokesman resigns

Online headline reads: ICE spokesman resigns, citing fabrications by agency chief, Sessions about Calif. immigrant arrests

"I’ve never been in a situation when I’ve been asked to ignore the facts because it was more convenient,” James Schwab told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Just another wonderful day in Mr. Trump's neighborhood. Acting ICE director Homan looks as if he was summoned from the Mafia hitman central casting.

This is for hobart59:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ri ... f53ec5a546

"Without interviewing key witnesses, looking at all relevant documents or awaiting special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings, the Republican majority on the House Intelligence Committee — lacking the knowledge or consent of committee Democrats — proclaimed that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. In addition to an utter lack of initiative, Republicans were disinclined to recall events that have already been made public and that show a peculiar degree of interaction between members of the Trump campaign and Russians (e.g., then-candidate Donald Trump’s invitation for Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails, the June 2016 meeting between campaign officials and a Kremlin-connected lawyer at Trump Tower). Republicans went so far as to deny Russia had intervened in the 2016 election on President Trump’s behalf."

We blame a lot of stupid things on Nunes, who is a complete and total toolski. But a pox on the rest of the House IC Republicans for allowing this bozo to be the PT Barnum of their silly circus.

And there is this, to be fair:

"Even one of the Republican committee members expressed his disgust. “We’re just basically a political forum for people to leak information to drive the day’s news … we’ve lost all credibility, and we’re probably going to issue probably two different reports, unfortunately,” said Rep. Thomas J. Rooney (R-Fla.). He confessed that the committee had gone “off the rails.”
