Secretary Of State Tillerson FIRES the deep state ‘shadow government/7th floor’ traitors from State
IWB/CBS ^ | February 17, 2017 | IWB/Margaret Brennan, Kylie Atwood

Posted on 02/17/2017 5:57:49 AM PST by Fennie

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.

Remember, the "7th Floor" of the State Department was the 'SHADOW GOVERNMENT'.

"Countryman worries that the White House is displaying an intent to not rely on the State Department for foreign policy in that no one will be in place to challenge the edicts drawn up in the Oval Office".

********************************************************

Anybody getting a clue why these folks are being let go? Notice the snarky wording, too .... 'edicts' for one.

The State Department is loaded/infested with Arabists .... Bolton & others have said the State Department needs to be cleaned out (think Augean Stables type of mucking) & it looks like that is what Tillerson is doing. The "whining" in the blog & linked CBS article about the WH taking control of policy & having a mostly private meeting with Netanyahu is pathetic. I'm sure Bibi was very happy to have a non-Arabist meeting/dinner with Trump, Kushner & Tillerson.

Definition of "Arabist" per Wikipedia:
As used in modern, mainly American, political discourse, the term Arabist generally refers to a non-Arab observer with experience or specialization in Arabic language and culture, who is perceived to be excessively sympathetic towards Arab political views in relation to the Arab–Israeli conflict. Accusations of bias, and the term's use as a pejorative arose in the United States where "Arabists" in public service, largely in the State Department, were perceived as being "pro-Arab" by pro-Zionist and Jewish organizations and commentators following World War II and in the run-up to the partition of Palestine.

The US is being revealed to be just like Old Europe with the court machinations and conniving factions that beset European thrones for so many centuries. I thought the US had gotten beyond such devious aristocrats, but this is as bad as that ever was.

..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.

Many many of these jerkoffs are legends in their own minds.
The new appointments Tillerson makes will be up to speed in about, ohhh, three hours.

Not to mention that they'll be replacing the sort of 'expertise' that created most of the current international fuster cluck DJT inherited from that jugeared traitor chimp.

Only a small portion of the “Shadow Government”

McCain and his butt boy Lindsey are part of the visible part....

All agencies within the government has these people whose misguided allegiance is to supporting the structure and continuity of the status quo regardless of who is President or what party is in power....

They are on a misguided mission to save all of us from ourselves.....Adherence to their sworn oath or the Constitution is no longer an issue for them....

These people have been in place for decades and will not go away quietly. They are skilled at subterfuge and remaining in the shadows.....They will stop at nothing to accomplish their goals...... Some believe the Kennedy’s assassination and many other suspicious deaths (Scalia) resulted from these people...

Trump has his hands full as they work against him.... This will get very ungly.....State is one small step, the intelligence agencies are huge.... Even Mad Dog is having huge problems at the Pentagon moving his agenda forward with mid-level management stopping him.....(many recent articles regarding this)....

Let’s learn from history then...and start as concerned American citizens to learn who these people are and filibuster them...on the streets, e-mails ect. Protest at Langley and at all these NSA “fusion” centers. Shine a light on them and never let them operate in the dark again! If Trump gets harmed I fear that the country will tear it self apart!

Swamp level just dropped a few more inches.

Hate to see anyone lose their job, but... The team needs to be pro-Trump.

Mark Levin (yeah, I know) talks about an unofficial branch of Government, the Administrative Branch. He’s right on this one, too many embedded Leftists.

The Agencies aren't necessarily the problem....it's operatives that targeted and moved into some key positions in every Agency ranging from Bureau of Indian Affairs to the IRS to the intelligence Agencies, DOD etc......

State Department was a small start but they are still infiltrated or infested depending on your view....

Correctly identifying and removing them is the task....

My wife worked on the 7th floor there less than a year ago, but moved across the street to an adjacent State Department office within her directorate. I spent eight terrible years in the Liberal Elite Echo Chamber Department of State in four different diplomatic postings. Conservatives are the enemy, the military the enemy, Christians the enemy - and if you fit all three as a reitred military person good luck. Back stabbing between friends and coworkers is so common place in that environment where every member of the foreign service spends their every moment engaged in calculations on how their next act will promote their career and advancement. State is Cesspool of hate and envy. I never worked for an Admin Officer who did not take personal perks out of the budget, bend rules for financial gain, unwarranted travel, or to advance their cronies at post. Serving is Israel was the best post posting, followed by Hong Kong and believe it or not Georgetown Guyana while dangerous and 4th world was doable... had my parachutist injury not finished me off in Rio de Janeiro, I might not have retired at Age 55 - but I am so glad to see T-Rex tear thru that concrete jungle.

If the Trump team or T-Rex contingent is reading, I would be glad to come back to DC and stay with my wife in Arlington to help drain the swamp at Foggy Bottem.

#14 - Augean Stables in Greek mythology, the stables owned by King Augeas that had not been cleaned in 30 years. One of Heracles' tasks was to clean them in one day, which he achieved by diverting two rivers through them.

Good reference. Wonder if the Potomac can be diverted and run through DC.
