Skip to comments.State Dept. carries out layoffs under Rex Tillerson (DEEP STATE/Vault 7!)
Posted on 02/17/2017 4:48:07 AM PST by tcrlaf
While Rex Tillerson is on his first overseas trip as Secretary of State, his aides laid off staff at the State Department on Thursday.
Much of seventh-floor staff, who work for the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources and the Counselor offices, were told today that their services were no longer needed.
These staffers in particular are often the conduit between the secretarys office to the country bureaus, where the regional expertise is centered. Inside the State Department, some officials fear that this is a politically-minded purge that cuts out much-needed expertise from the policy-making, rather than simply reorganizing the bureaucracy.
There are clear signals being sent that many key foreign policy portfolios will be controlled directly by the White House, rather than through the professional diplomats. Not a single State Department official was included in the White House meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week. Trumps son-in-law, Jared Kushner - who has no regional expertise or diplomatic experience - had a greater role in the meeting than the Senate-confirmed secretary of State.

The entrenched Academic Socialist Deep State beaurucrats are being cut out. These are the 7th floor "Untouchables" at State!
"There was a powerful group of very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as 'The 7th Floor Group' or 'The Shadow Government.' This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss the FOIA process, Congressional records, and everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries," the FBI's interview summary said.

The Soros Billionaires have spent a LOT of money getting those people in place, and are not going to be happy about this!!
Re: Soros: Oh well....
Damn good more fire them all and the pick the ones who pass a lie-detector test to hire back.....FIRE THEM ALL!!!
If a criminal can pass a lie detector test, watch out...sociopath alert!!!
Outstanding news to kick off a Friday!
Obama Appointees Preventing Mattis From Rebuilding The Military, Says Armed Services Chair.
When will this be drained, come on folks! get to it!
I hope this is as YUGE as it sounds.
GWB was steadfast in not cleaning house of the disloyal, politicized staff put in by Clinton. Either he was in denial, or stupid, or complicit. I haven’t figured out which.
After GWB, I was beginning to think that perhaps it couldn’t be done, due to the President being hog-tied by various Civil Service regulations.
I love WINNING!
RE: Soros TOUGH !!!!
And now those Clintonistas, turned Obamabots, have been in place for 20 years. Many are now in positions where they cannot be fired. Trump/Tillerson need to identify those and take away their access to info. NOW.
GWB was establishment. Trump is a wrecking ball.
Now about the 1,000 that signed the protest letter about Pres Trumps travel review...
I really advice all FReepers to read the whole piece. You can definitely taste the salt of the flowing tears.
President Trump is a very fast learner.
“News You Won’t be Seeing on CNN/MSNBC”
I’m actually shocked that CBS is covering it.
It is amusing that because of building height restrictions in Washington DC the top floor of many agencies is the 7th floor, which is where the senior "leadership" is housed along with their political hangers on. Thus the 7th floor group is a common problem throughout government.
I agree with the “fire them all” sentiment. We need to hire people who are loyal to the American people and those who are fellow deplorables.
This could be a tool
Reassignment to positions not requiring that level of security access
Ordering office furniture to replace that stolen by Clinton, perhaps
“And now those Clintonistas, turned Obamabots, have been in place for 20 years. Many are now in positions where they cannot be fired.”
They can, however, be transferred to the “New” State Department Field Office Projects in Barrow, Galena, and Guam!
“Layoffs” is a loaded word. Are these just getting rid of remaining Obama political appointees or moving career types aligned with Obama out of these jobs and into another that is lower profile?
