Drain the Swamp: Trump Triggers Mass Resignations at State Dept.

Prison Planet

The entire senior level of the State Dept. resigned on Wednesday, underscoring how the department was in step with both the Obama administration and the globalist agenda.

The mass resignations provide President Trump with a clean slate to reboot the State Dept. which, over the past few years, became synonymous with corruption and violent regime changes overseas.

Those who resigned even made the point to do so when President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, was visiting the Harry S. Truman Building where the State Dept. is located.

“It’s the single biggest simultaneous departure of institutional memory that anyone can remember, and that’s incredibly difficult to replicate,” said David Wade, who served as under Secretary of State John Kerry. “Department expertise in security, management, administrative and consular positions in particular are very difficult to replicate and particularly difficult to find in the private sector.”

And it’s worth mentioning that several of those who resigned were likely part of the Clinton State Dept. and its numerous scandals.

Ironically, this has left the anti-Trump Washington Post with very few insider sources of information at State

“[State Dept. Undersecretary] Kennedy, who has been in that job for nine years, was actively involved in the transition and was angling to keep that job under Tillerson, three State Department officials told me,” the WaPo’s Josh Rogin reported. “Then suddenly on Wednesday afternoon, Kennedy and three of his top officials resigned unexpectedly, four State Department officials confirmed.”

The resignations weren’t just limited to headquarters; career foreign service officers at regional bureaus also resigned, which will cause pain in the short-term but will allow a cleaner atmosphere at the State Dept. to flourish.

One comment on “Drain the Swamp: Trump Triggers Mass Resignations at State Dept.
  1. I am so glad the remnants of the State Department under the Obama-Clinton Administration chose to resign. Their behavior and their mindset are massively out of step with the many citizens of the United States. I am very grateful to be a citizen of this country, and even though as human beings we have at times made terrible errors of judgment in our dealings in the world, we love and appreciate our heritage and Constitutional Republic that allowed us to have freedoms of speech, worship, and thought disallowed to large portions of the world. If these resigned State Department employees cannot appreciate what we have been for the most part, there are many other countries where they could feel more in step with their socialist, or communist leanings. Go help in Venezuela, for instance. The communism there is quite exciting , playing ” where is a meal?” So many people would love to be free, making a living for their families, and sharing the blessings of liberty. Would those of you who have no appreciation for those liberties take their places?
