How can anyone not see that something really sinister is going on?

Tillerson fired after crictizing Russian poisoning and Devin Nunes shuts down the House Russia investigation.

I know people are stupid, but Jesus Christ: Wake Up!

That's ESPECIALLY true for those who voted for "it" in Nov '16, and still support him. The others who have had second thoughts, less so.

8. honestly, i think the timing is somewhat coincidental.

other than that there's a lot of generally pro-russia and pro-autocratic things going on, so of course they're going to line up from time to time.

but i think donnie's been actively looking for a replacement for state for at least a couple weeks and it seem fairly clear donnie had decided to fire him well before that comment about russia and the poisoning.

and nunes shutting down the "investigation" was part of the plan from day one, it was always a sham. they wanted the illusion of oversight, and those damn democrats took the opportunity to do some actual digging and leaking of at least some of the findings. so they had to shut it down, it had long outlived its propaganda usefulness and had become merely a danger to their cover-up.

25. But Donnie only took credit for the firing, he din't fire Tillerson cuz he's a shithole coward.

Any employee/staff member deserves the respect of being told in person by the person they report to that they are being let go.

Trump disrespected Tillerson by tweeting it. Just like he disrespected Comey with Comey finding out about it on TV.

What an ass. Karma (in the name of Mueller) is coming to take care of him though.

Putin may or may not be an evil genius playing Trump for a fool, but that concept runs counter to the prevailing sentiment I'm reading on this thread that Trump himself is an evil genius.

Maybe he is a mastermind... Wiley E. Coyote was a Super-Genius, and nothing he ever did back-fired on him.

50. The founding fathers attempted to protect the minority. The explored this at length.

The Federalist Papers that were authored by Madison, Hamilton and Jay were published in newspapers to basically support the voted for the Constriction explored this. It was a compromise to gain support for the ratification. The attempts amend this procedure have been met at nearly every election by the losing party, who have won the popular vote, but lost the election. The party that wins can't go against what put them in office creating an impossible Catch 22 situation. It appears that the only way would be for the citizens to massively protest and demand the election by be determined by vote count.

Nothing we can do about it now.

GOP is strong arming it.. They dont care and may be successful at pushing through their changes... Democrats are not able to do anything about it. Nothing until new voting is done in November.

If we dont take that house / senate there wont be any changes to this for another 2 years.

If GOP where smart they would force drastic changes.

National Voter ID. Voter clearances through the Government (GOP)
Changing the constitution to allow only republicans tv stations freedom of press..
Getting ownership of all media outlets and then they set the narrative..
etc, etc

They have done this before by changing the powers of the Democrat governor in NC.. They are ruthless and dont care if they kick a democrat around or out of the country.

You better get your asstothe voting booth and vote.

the one we live in. Based on the alternative version of reality they are presented with, they think we are the ones who can't see that something sinister is going on (deep state.) I know someone on that camp; she married a Faux watcher and now lives in the alternative reality universe.

47. A War Hawk set to replace Tillerson. It's all about ginning up War w/ N. Korea to save SHitler's rep

That's all, IMO.

1. Discredit Russia investigation any way possible
2. Ditch Tillerson and put a raging warhawk in his place just weeks before meeting w/ N. Korea leader
3. Gin up Nuke War w/ N. Korea
4. Meet w/ Kim Jong Un
5. NUKE the planet (and SUDDENLY NOBODY'S TALKING ABOUT TRUMP/RUSSIA ANYMORE!)

And SHitler is SAVED (while the rest of us and the planet are nuked to ashes)

Think he's above that?

I DON'T. I could be wrong - but I don't put A N Y T H I N G past SHitler.

51. I'm just wondering if...

... Putin's after trump now, trying to squeeze him into lifting sanctions, or like the other day with Putin's bombing display targeting Florida, or his poisoning people around the world lately, and now turned to threats because he's tired of trump's excuses, he wants the sanctions lifted. I think Putin doesn't want to be further exposed by the Mueller investigation too, so trump will fire Mueller soon I think, for Putin and himself. Tillerson was to buy time maybe, and he blamed him . Trump also has a habit of stop paying his creditors, so is he stiffing his Russian creditors now too? There's a lot more to this then what we know, but with trump expect the worse, and its probably more likely possible.

Ive said it many times, but money talks. Economic boycott. It doesnt have to be as extreme as walking out on your jobs, but stopping all discretionary spending until there is a response isnt so hard, when it comes to saving our country.

Where’s the red line? I feel like a frog in a pot slowly having the heat turned up. I think we all do.
We are inundated with news cycling that we cant even keep track of, and even DIGEST before the next story comes out! Things are being done under our noses that we dont even know. Probably the same corruption that occurs with Putin. I mean, basically the tax cut was a money grab by the american oligarchs. Raiding the govt till and giving it to them.
