Draining The Swamp At The State Department

Seems the new SecState is cleaning house and getting rid of Obama loyalists.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is cleaning house at the State Department, according to a report.

Staffers in the offices of deputy secretary of state for management and resources as well as counselor were shown the door Thursday, according to CBS News.

Many of those let go were on the building’s seventh floor — top-floor bigs — a symbolically important sign to the rest of the diplomatic corps that their new boss has different priorities than the last one.

The staffing changes came as Tillerson was on his first foreign trip — attending a G-20 meeting in Bonn, Germany.

“As part of the transition from one administration to the next, we continue to build out our team. The State Department is supported by a very talented group of individuals, both Republicans and Democrats,” State Department spokesman RC Hammond told CBS.

“We are appreciative to any American who dedicates their talents to public,” he added.

This week’s round of firings marks the second time State Department personnel have been cleared out since President Trump took office last month.

Four top officials were cleared out of the building at the end of January.

“As is standard with every transition, the outgoing administration, in coordination with the incoming one, requested all politically appointed officers submit letters of resignation,” a State Department spokesman said at the time.

    Kristallnacht at the state department is overdue. It will rid the department of all the dangerous “left behind” Obama booby-trap setting stooges.

  2. Damn Bogside! Using that term only feeds the illiterate nitwits on the left with more
    Trump = Hitler narratives.

    I love it because every time I begin to think Trump is slowing down, he reminds me
    of why I voted for him! Trump is like the Energizer Bunny in that he never stops
    moving. The guys who produce South Park have given up on poking fun at Trump
    because he is a moving target. By the time it takes them to complete an episode,
    the material is dated!

    Also, the house is starting to work again. They just passed a single sentence bill
    to abolish the EPA! They are also working on drug testing for people on the dole,
    and other good things. The Trump train is UNSTOPPABLE! Even the senate
    is going to have to climb aboard in spite of McStain and Grahamnisty.

    Right now, Milo Y. is contemplating an Ethel Merman skit where he sings Everythings
    Coming Up Roses!

    Somewhat off topic, but I am listening to President Trump and its so refreshing. A President who is doing what he promised. After decades of lying shysters saying whatever they think will get them elected. The idea that a politician doing something they actually campaigned on seems revolutionary. Over here the BBC cant get their heads around it. It speaks volumes that these fucks always refer to him as Donald Trump or Trump. Not President Trump.

    This expresses my feelings pretty well:

    All I can add is, MOAR!
