Tillerson and Mattis Holding Trump Back From Launching Attack on North Korea

Tillerson and Mattis Holding Trump Back From Launching Attack on North Korea

(ANTIMEDIA Op-ed)  Before the New Year, Anti-Media reported that the Trump administration was weighing a limited tactical strike on North Korea similar to that of the U.S. military’s April strike against the Syrian government.

However, not everyone in the Trump administration is particularly happy about the strike proposal, according to Business Insider. From the outlet’s recent report:

“Both The Telegraph and The Wall Street Journal have portrayed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis as trying to caution President Donald Trump against a strike, and the national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, as advocating it.”

As Business Insider notes, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appeared to change the Trump administration’s stance on North Korea in mid-December, stating that the U.S. was “ready to talk anytime. North Korea would like to talk, and we’re ready to have the first meeting without precondition.”

“Stop Bickering, Get in Early, Make an Appointment” – in the five months since John Kelly took the helm as Trump’s Chief of Staff, the former marine has reportedly turned the West Wing from a free-for-all of division and disorganization into a well oiled machine. 

Mountains of unchecked paperwork no longer cross the Resolute Desk. Gone is the ability for aides and associates to simply swing by the Oval Office and have a chat with President Trump – including his own son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka who began reporting directly to Kelly. Senior staff meetings which once began at nearly 9 a.m. were moved to 8 a.m. in the Roosevelt Room – in sharp contrast to the wandering discussions held by Kelly’s predecessor, Reince Priebus – often with the TV blaring in the background of his office.

Moreover, Kelly has instructed staff not to simply patch calls through to President Trump from friends outside the White House who wanted to chat about current events – instead requiring that they make appointments. (more…)

Holding Your Breath Until You Turn Blue

My wife’s family had a schism going, back when I first met her, thirty-six years ago. One side had voted for and ardently supported President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The other side wanted nothing to do with the man. But the real family split came when Roosevelt expired during his fourth term in office. One grandfather […]

Graphic Body Cam Shows Cops Needlessly Kill Man for Holding a Hammer — He Never Advanced

Tahlequah, OK — Graphic body cam footage was released this week showing officers needlessly escalate to deadly force as they surrounded a man who was holding up a hammer. One of the officers effectively deployed his taser to stop the man, however, it was futile as two other cops put three bullets each into him. The victim was 49-year-old Dominic Rollice of Park Hill who was drunk and in the house where he used to live. He was in the garage when his ex-wife called the police to have him removed.
