How does everyone know there is nothing to 'the Russian hoax'? Mueller hasn't leaked or announced the current status of this investigation.
I posted "pretty much everyone". You fall outside of that as part of the "pretty much" aspect. The evidence/signs have been posted ad nauseum both here and various news outlets. If you choose not to read/think on those then that is totally up to you.

Because it's the stupidest conspiracy theory in the history of stupid conspiracy theories.  Worse than 9/11 Troofers.  Worse than that Birther crap.  Worse than the faked moon landing conspiracy.

Bummer.  I love Mad Dog.  Huge loss. 

And I disagree with Trump pulling troops against Mad Dog's advice.  Terrible decision and it cost him the best cabinet appointment of his presidency. 

Defense Secretary James Mattis to retire at the end of February, Trump says

I really don't think it matters. Likely it will be someone who will agree with him. He had the best possible person but Trump is always the smartest person in the room

Everyone is replaceable, you were replaced, I will be replaced. It is troubling, but not the end of the world.

A generic statement certainly. But back to specifics... It will be difficult to find a replacement that is knowledgeable about the subjects, intelligent AND will agree with Trumps views.

It may be for certain. Who would you choose?

I hope he says yes.  I would have voted for him in 2016 if he won the nomination.

FORMER DEMOCRATIC SENATOR COULD REPLACE MATTIS AS DEFENSE SECRETARY, SAYS REPORT
01/03/2019 | POLITICS
Virginia Kruta | Associate Editor

Former Democratic Virginia Sen. Jim Webb is reportedly being considered as a possible replacement for retiring Defense Secretary James Mattis.

According to a report from The New York Times, Webb has been approached by representatives for both Vice President Mike Pence and acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.

Representatives for Vice President Mike Pence and Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, have reached out to Mr. Webb, one of the three officials said. Separately, a senior Defense Department official confirmed that Mr. Webb’s name had been circulating at the White House. Those two and the third official all spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the internal discussions.

Webb’s vocal opposition to the Iraq war and former President Barack Obama’s Iran Deal — along with his belief that China should be dealt with aggressively — seem to align him with much of President Donald Trump’s foreign policy. He also fails to align with the more progressive Democrats on other key issues like climate change. (RELATED: Donald Trump Should Consider Jim Webb For Veep)

The Naval Academy graduate and Vietnam veteran also served as President Ronald Reagan’s secretary of the Navy. While in Vietnam, he earned the Navy Cross, the Silver Star Medal, two Bronze Star Medals and two Purple Hearts.

Webb, who served only one term as senator, briefly entered the 2016 Democratic presidential primary. He left the race abruptly after the first televised debate, saying that he and the Democratic Party had parted ways.

“I fully accept that my views on many issues are not compatible with the power structure and base of the Democratic Party,” he said, leaving the door open for an independent run that never materialized.

In 2016, Webb distanced himself further from the Democratic Party when he said that he could not cast a vote for nominee Hillary Clinton and admitted that he would consider pulling the lever for Trump.

Other names reportedly being discussed for Mattis’s past position include former Republican Missouri Sen. Jim Talent and sitting Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

No idea. But if I were in that position I would develop or have developed a list of potential candidates that meet a criteria of experience and knowledge. What I wouldn't do would be to choose someone that didn't have the balls to tell me what they really thought of an idea or policy. I also would recognize that I should put weight to their guidance because I sure don't know enough about it.

I'm not delusional. I'm not a sociopath. I don't believe I know more than the generals. I respect differing opinions and don't feel lashing out is my first option in the face of controversy. I have experience in consensus building and leading from the front. I am moral, trustworthy and have the countries best interest at heart. I never filed bankruptcy  Those are a few of the reasons I am more qualified than him, but even then, I am not qualified to be President. I think we (the majority of Americans) are seeing what happens when an unqualified person takes that office. It aint pretty

I suppose to those who think once you have an idea in your head you should stick to it no matter what, it might sound that way
