Last Mature Man Has Left Trump White House

I am shaken by the resignation of General Mattis. For what it means to our country, for the message it sends to our troops, and for the indication of what his view is of the commander-in-chief.

— House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), quoted by The Hill.

The letter of resignation form Mattis is an astonishing rebuke of Trump.

Key quotes:

“While the U.S. remains the indispensable nation in the free world, we cannot protect our interests or serve that role effectively without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to those allies.”

“Similarly, I believe we must be resolute and unambiguous in our approach to those countries whose strategic interests are increasingly in tension with ours.”

“My view on treating allies with respect and also being clear-eyed about both malign actors and strategic competitors are strongly held and informed by over four decades of immersion on these issues.”

    Isn’t it great that you and nancy pelosi live in a great country where snowflakes can live in comfort and spend way too much time taking pot-shots at a man who is trying to bring America back on course and make it a better place for all of us to live? What constructive efforts have you made to that end? Maybe you have spent some time Thanking Governor Walker for all the things he did to make your life better while he was in office? That would be positive! Or maybe you have offered your vast intellect to the new governor, who is certainly going to need some help in that area? Or maybe you are just practicing being a bully – something that you have spent a lot of time writing about? I hope in the new year you will become more positive, and supportive of people who are giving up a lot to serve you…

  2. Smokey,

    You have no respect for intelligence, or for international order. You have no regard for anyone other than yourself. If you had any moral compass–at all–you would grasp the enormity now facing the Kurds as a result of Trump’s move. But why care for them as they are a different skin color than yours. You show your complete disregard for the process of government and also you show that you have no allegiance even to conservative principles by not denouncing the Trump move. You can not even stand with the US military! You are shameful.

    The reason why is clear and demonstrated with your comments. You are not mentally able to stand with those who use facts and reason.
