Hell Awaits Rex Tillerson

Just wanted to point out the obvious. For those joining late, Rex Tillerson is Trump’s former Secretary of State. But before that, Tillerson was one of the many people who served as CEO of Exxon, the biggest company in the world. Not Oil company big, Company big. Bigger than anyone (debate over the size of […]

Our Stoopid Country

For those joining us late, Jeffrey Epstein has apparently taken his own life in NY’s own MCC, one of the most secure jail facilities in the US prison system. He was on suicide watch, and had an earlier ‘incident’ a few weeks ago when bunking with an ex-cop. He thus secured his own cell and […]
