Secretary Rex Tillerson Begins Deconstructing 7th Floor “Shadow Government” at Dept of State…

The term “shadow government” is not a construct of critics; it’s actually the term the professional bureaucrats within the 7th floor of the Washington DC based Department of State gave to themselves.

The career political operatives who reign within the State Department openly view themselves as a distinctly separate state governing authority, with no attachment to the policies or objectives of the United States presidency or any mere elected official therein.


For years this group has considered themselves “the untouchables”.

They live a life of high financed indulgence including: massive expense accounts, chartered airline travel, swanky cocktail parties, expense chauffeurs to take their kids to private school, seasonally designed home decor – appointed by only the very best interior designers, personal security to keep the commoners away, tickets to the best venues and reserved seating at elite DC restaurants.

With first rights to the budget expenditures, the 7th floor group finds no indulgence too extravagant for their intellectual elitism.  They demand nothing but the finest because they are the most worthy of the DC professionally privileged – who are more equal than others; and after all, their jobs require them to host and visit like-minded diplomats, and celebrities with exclusive tastes from around the world.

Today, this elite crew collectively choked on their crust-less triangle sandwiches:


WASHINGTON DC – […]  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.

[…]  Two sources also told CBS News that Ambassador Kristie Kenney, the Counselor of the State Department and one of the last remaining senior officials, was informed that she will be let go. She is a career foreign service officer who had served as an ambassador under Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton. Her staff was told that Secretary Tillerson does not intend to fill the counselor’s position anytime soon.

[…]  “It is irresponsible to let qualified, nonpartisan, experienced people go before you have any idea of their replacement. You can’t do foreign policy by sitting in the White House, just out of your back pocket,” explains Tom Countryman, Former Assistant Secretary for Non-Proliferation who was let go earlier this month.

Countryman worries that the White House is displaying an intent 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.  (read more)

Ah yes, who will remain to “challenge the edicts of the Oval Office“?   Yes, that’s what they see as ‘THEIR JOB’.    Those,.. those… White House vulgarians are merely peon elected officials who represent the far inferior riff-raff types with lesser intellect and class.

Oh, the horror of it all…

These entities see themselves as a complete and separate structure of government. They also function as a complete and separate ideological structure of government:


Deconstruction and realignment while simultaneously managing/controlling the amount of damage these internal agents will do toward the larger Trump administration objectives is a tenuous undertaking.

Secretary Rex Tillerson is tasked with taking the corrupt and rotting vehicle down to the frame and cutting out the cancerous rust.  This is yet another epic battle with ZERO Washington DC supporters as Trump and T-Rex endeavor through the restoration phase.

We shall now see if the UniParty (Democrat and Republican) will try to impede such an effort:

“There is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than the creation of a new order of things. … Whenever his enemies have occasion to attack the innovator they do so with the passion of partisans, while the others defend him sluggishly so that the innovator and his party alike are vulnerable.”

~ Niccolo Machiavelli

    If you could only fire one swamp monster from the Obama state department, you would be hard pressed to find someone who had done a worse job than the assistant secretary for non-proliferation. Russia, China and North Korea are all expanding and modernizing their nuclear weapons, while we made deals to help Iran get nuclear weapons.

    If there was ever a president whose policies should have been opposed at State, it would have been Obama.

    Good riddance to them all.

        If Iran doesn’t, about which I would only take the word of the Mossad, they will sooner rather than later, thanks to the misguided Mr. Obama and his great pal, Valerie Jarrett (who was born in Iran), and John Kerry (who did “serve” in Vietnam, although his entire command structure assured us, hid his Swiftboat in the marshes, avoiding the fighting whenever possible),

      Yes they lose their clearances on their last day of employment. Depending on if and where they find employment, their clearances can be reinstated applicable to their new job. The private contractors will pick ones who can be helpful to obtaining new contracts. There may be a few new faces in the MSM press, a few new ‘think tanks’, even maybe a new ‘charity’ foundation or two. I’d be curious as to who finds a place at the Obama’s foundation.

      I don’t know how accurate this information is, but this came from a government worker who has retired. At the State Dept. they are 10-13 people deep at way too many positions at the State. Dept and most probably many government jobs all over the swamp. It’s one of the reasons why we are in so much debt.


  14. Niagara Frontier says:

    This story still has more holes than Swiss cheese because it’s still so vague. The term “let go” and “services are no longer needed” generally signify lay-offs. But I doubt these are lay-offs in the traditional sense such that these folks are headed for the unemployment line.

    If these are Senior Executive Service (SES) employees, then it’s probable they will land positions in State or in other agencies at a similar six-figure pay. Likely most entered SES from the career civil service so they could be returned to their previous position if it still exists and is vacant. If not, a similar position will be found.

    Sure, some will retire but others will land somewhere where they might be able to cause mischief if they so choose.

    Step 2: Eliminate ALL Entertainment Budgets pending review of “Spend vs Directly Attributable Objectives and Outcomes”, and freeze ALL socializing with foreigners and lobbyists pending review of unreported interactions and “Interactions without Directly Attributable Objectives and Outcomes”:
    • Fire those who Spend without the Outcomes.
    • Fire those whose Outcomes undermine the Trump Agenda.

    in the private sector companies eliminate whole departments through a procedure called a Reduction in Force. Positions are simply eliminated and the person in that RIF’d position is instantly unemployed. It’s a heartless way to reorganize but corporations do it all the time. Anybody that’s a GS15 or above should have to reapply for their jobs. How are we ever going to downsize the Federal bureaucracy if whole departments aren’t eliminated?
