Rex Tillerson Literally Prevented A War

Rex Tillerson really sucks, but he actually did a great thing here. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. TYT now has a full audio network! Listen at

“Thirteen hours before Secretary of State Rex Tillerson learned from the presidential Twitter feed that he was being fired, he did something that President Donald Trump had been unwilling to do. Following a phone call with his British counterpart, Tillerson condemned a deadly nerve agent attack in the U.K., saying that he had “full confidence in the U.K.’s investigation and its assessment that Russia was likely responsible.”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders had called the attack “reckless, indiscriminate, and irresponsible,” but stopped short of blaming Russia, leading numerous media outlets to speculate that Tillerson was fired for criticizing Russia.

But in the months that followed his departure, press reports strongly suggested that the countries lobbying hardest for Tillerson’s removal were Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, both of which were frustrated by Tillerson’s attempts to mediate and end their blockade of Qatar. One report in the New York Times even suggested that the UAE ambassador to Washington knew that Tillerson would be forced out three months before he was fired in March.”*

6ix9ine Going To Prison For 3 Years?!?!

Fri Aug 10 , 2018
The Manhattan D.A's Office spokesperson said they are suggesting the rapper spend 1-3 years in state prison after claiming that he violated the terms of his plea deal in his child sex case, The Blast reports. The rapper's arrest in Houston and NYC are being used against him as official say that he didn't hold up his terms of the agreement. Additionally, they want Tekashi 6ix9ine to register as a sex offender because of the violation. The prosecutor's letter to the judge says, "Defendant has had over two years to demonstrate to this Court that the role he played in the sexual exploitation of a thirteen-year-old child was an aberration in his otherwise law abiding life. He has failed to do so.” The rapper caught the case in 2015. He pled guilty to one count of Use Of A Child In A Sexual Performance. 6ix9ine was spotted by TMZ on his way into court earlier today. The rapper didn't speak a whole lot but he did say that he was "scared as fuck, right now." The rapper is expected to be back in court on October 2nd.
