Well, there goes Eastern Europe.

What the actual fark?

Tillerson has to visit in person to deliver Trump's loyalty payment for the year?

On the same Day the FBI announces they are investigating collusion between Trump and Russia this comes out.

Just another typical idea by the administration. Senseless, stupid and against our interests, which comet to think of it, is about right.

attend President Donald Trump's expected April 6-7 talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida,

Oh, jesus.  I honestly can't figure whether they'll be so disgusted they nuke us, or spend the next 50 years using it as their example of everything wrong with Western excess and sloth.  Don't get me wrong, they've done a bang-up job of embracing capitalism, but it's still handcuffed firmly to duty, loyalty, and efficiency, with a political officer handcuffed to the other arm and a tank gently idling as a reminder directly across the town square at all times.

The tanks rumble very loudly. You wouldn't want anyone to not notice it. Or forget about it for a few moments.

That's the best way to avoid leaving a trail of evidence.

The only question now is how long it will take Putin to find an excuse to roll his army through western Ukraine.

The spice oil must flow.


NATO stands to interfere with the consolidation of the Ukraine and Crimea under Putin's control. That means they are interfering with profits from oil to enrich Putin and Tillerson's friends. We're talking hundreds of billions of dollars. There is no mystery here.
 
2017-03-20 11:12:10 PM  
I don't know why anyone is surprised by this.
 
2017-03-20 11:16:56 PM  
Every day is worse than the last. I didn't think it was possible. I've said many times, "If the GOP doesn't stand up to this..."

Record low approval numbers, under investigation, still able to appoint SCOTUS and SoS is going to Russia.

Everything is farking fine.

If I'm a country in eastern Europe, I'm probably on the phone with the chinese putting out feelers tonight.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to skip an April 5-6 meeting of NATO foreign ministers for a U.S. visit by the Chinese president and will travel to Russia later in the month, U.S. officials said on Monday, a step allies may see as putting Moscow's concerns ahead of theirs.

Christ, I just am so done with this shiat.
 
2017-03-20 11:50:23 PM  
NATO should simply hold the meeting elsewhere, like in Canada or Mexico, and make it clear that they want nothing to do with the shiatshow that is Donald Trump.

The truest thing said about the whole mess. There is no mystery here. What's going on now is watching the tug-o'-war between folks who care about the country and folks who care about their own wallets, as everyone slowly goes through the process of collecting or hiding the evidence, respectively.

We know O.J. killed Trump colluded with them - the question is, can we prove guilt given the evidence? Right now, Trump's smirk is slowly fading as the evidence is starting to pile up, but there's no guarantee that we're going to find enough evidence to impeach or convict him or his buddies.

I wouldn't be surprised if there were a realignment in the next few years with the US joining Russia and Turkey as one big power bloc.

An axis if you will

Guys, you have to remember; Tillerman has no power.  Bannon and Jared are running foreign policy.

I'm not kidding.  They're regularly meeting foreign minsters and leaders in the White House and not even informing Tillerman or the State Department about it.
 
2017-03-21 12:02:37 AM  
Ha! Awesome! I got a greenlight while actually on a parent-teacher conference call! Score!

Our Secretary of State has always skipped important NATO meetings. Believe me!

what is this state department you speak of?  there is a gutted husk of a department that was once called a state department, but it isn't there now.

Republican response to this news: Who leaked this to Reuters?! Finding out the person whom leaked this is much more important than what the actual information in the leak is really about.

Holy shiat, THIS.  I've only been out six years.  I'm still on IRR, and medical personnel are some of the first to be recalled.

I just made the mistake of picturing them both having sex.

This kind of shiat doesn't look good.

Everyone accused with collating with Russia,  including Tillerson and  Trump himself,  should resign.

Jared will go to the NATO meeting to tell them too Funck off and pay their funkin protection monies.

No evidence is necessary for impeachment.  The real issue is getting Congress to act.  If this doesn't get them into a state of pants shiatting terror nothing will.  We are dealing with a soft coup.  If we are saved it will be by the New York Attorney General's Office.

Trump can't pardon a State charge against him.  He'll be unable to rule from prison.

Wrong!

According to Fox News, AM radio and right wing blogs the real criminals are the leakers and reporters whom had the audacity to report the leaks.

Cordial greetings from a citizen of a neighbouring NATO country. Kindly fix your shiat before the is no coming back. Christ.

someone in another thread posited Rex is going to defect.

I've been considering how that would change things.

Perhaps the FBI will detain him at the airport.
