Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Speaking to soon-to-be graduates of the Virginia Military Institute on Wednesday, Tillerson dropped this truth bomb: "If our leaders seek to conceal the truth, or we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as American citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom."

How do you know what his motivation is for speaking out JPW. I think when a conservative, corporatist, warns us about the potential loss of freedom, we would be stupid not to listen carefully to what he has to say.

I'm not suggesting we ignore his statements.

My comment was a critique of his willingness to participate and only speak out once he was humiliated and kicked out.

Headline score = 4 inflatable Pamela Anderson ironic counter-terrorism blowup dolls. You've got enough to start a fetish makeup channel, dude!

Tillerson reminds me of someone who should have been exasperated because of personality conflicts, not logic, data or policy. Instead, while dominating he does seem pragmatic, and it's lovely hearing him wax "we're all just human beings trying to do our part", "you don't have to participate in that" and warning later that Russia is "heading .. toward greater isolation." The irony being - as a non-politician appointee he appears to be the most competent politician in the entire administration.

That's perhaps the nicest thing I've ever posted about a Republican. Slather it all over, I won't be excreting more anytime soon from the look of the rest of them.
