Angry Senate Republicans Demand Tillerson Spend More Money in State Dept…

The Usual Suspects – Senator John McCain joins Senator Bob Corker demanding that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson spend more money or face being hauled up to congress for Senate investigative hearings on his excessive streamlining and productivity efforts.

According to their arguments, Secretary Tillerson has the audacity to think he is allowed to run the state department. Exactly who does he think he is?

If he doesn’t start spending more money, the Republicans in the Senate might just impeach him.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Two senior U.S. senators asked Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Wednesday to explain “questionable management practices” at his department that they believe are weakening the country’s diplomatic power, adding to a chorus of concern in Congress.

Republican Senator John McCain and Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen delivered a letter to Tillerson asking him to begin consulting with lawmakers on decisions that have an impact on recruiting, retaining and staffing the State Department, removing a hiring freeze and resuming promotions.

[…] Many members of Congress, Democrats as well as some of President Donald Trump’s fellow Republicans, have rejected Trump’s proposal to cut the State Department budget by about 30 percent. Tillerson has embraced the plan, and imposed a hiring freeze while analyzing the agency’s operations and deciding how to reorganize them.

On Tuesday, the Republican chairman and top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee both blasted the agency for cuts in staff and what they described as a failure to have a plan for a proposed organization.  (read more)

Suffice to say, anyone who has followed politics for any substantive amount of time knows the inherent issue with an operational entity, The U.S. State Department. Their entire mission has been at the epicenter of UniParty globalist advocacy.  Heck, selling foreign policy is where the big bucks are made.  Tillerson is now an existential threat to their bank accounts.

If you go back to the larger State Dept. challenge, Secretary Tillerson is essentially in charge of a U.S. Department that is comprised almost exclusively of Kerry/Clinton/Obama/Bush/UniParty/GOPe big “G” Globalists.

These entities, together with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, see themselves as a complete and separate structure of U.S. government.  They also function as a complete and separate ideological structure of government:

fbi-clinton-4-shadow-government

When you accept the scope of the challenge, and recognize it is almost impossible to change the participants therein; and further accept these career embeds will work earnestly and diligently to undermine the structure of a Trump administration at every opportunity; perhaps only then can you truly value Tillerson’s skill-set as a leader who knows how to deliver results within MASSIVELY COMPLEX organizations.

Leaders who know how to operate complex global organizations, mega scale corporations, which, by their very nature, may contain hostile agents to the larger corporate mission – ie. Exxon/Mobil – are not commonplace. Hence, the jaw-dropping compensation those elite titans of industry command.

We knew  a long time ago it was going to take some out-of-the-box thinking to find the specific skills needed if Donald Trump was intending to cut down the anti-American endeavors within the enterprise known as the U.S. State Department.

Deconstruction and realignment while simultaneously managing/controlling the amount of damage internal agents can do toward larger administration objectives is a tenuous undertaking. Taking the rotting vehicle down to the frame and cutting out the cancerous rust is an epic battle with ZERO Washington DC supporters as T-Rex endeavors to overcome their roadblocks.

As predicted, both wings of the UniParty (Democrat and Republican) are taking action to impede that 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

Additionally, the economic battle -brought about by foreign nations who take exception to the pending trade realignments- is also being waged on the destabilizing battlefield of global oil and energy (dollars as global trade currency).  Rex Tillerson brings another unique attribute into the necessary America-First defense armory.

        Exactly.

        It’s the same with all of these scumbags.

        They (so-called Republicans, mind you — the filthy crap-weasels) say they need to ‘find a way to PAY for the tax cut’.

        They didn’t care about paying for ANYTHING while the Hussein DOUBLED the national debt!

        Where were you deficit chicken-hawks then?!?

        When it comes time for WE the PEOPLE to get a break, all of a sudden you’re keeping a close watch on spending?

      Which is ironically exactly why I’m praying the current tax “reform” bills fail utterly. The current bills are shams really. All they do is leave spending untouched and shift the visible tax burden from globalist Crony forms to we taxpayers. If I lose my deductions I’ll see massive tax increases. Meanwhile big globalist firms keep their deductions and get massive tax cuts and more spending.

    _______________

    It has been almost a YEAR now. Those Kerry/Clinton/Obama/Bush/UniParty/GOPe globalists are only there because either Tillerson or Trump WANTS them to be there, aren’t they?

    Oh yes, I know, it’s soooooo hard for fire anyone in government… if only the former CEO of Exxon Mobile or even President Trump was smart enough to figure out how to get rid of saboteurs in their own administration…

    Are Trump and Tillerson too incompetent to figure out how to fire them, or too incompetent to figure out how to transfer them all to the U.S. research facilities at the North and South Poles, prompting a FLOOD of resignations?

    No, they’re not too incompetent to figure that out.

    So Tillerson and Trump must WANT these saboteurs inside their administration.

    I don’t know why, but THAT is the question that needs to be answered.

    WHY.

    Why do Trump and Tillerson want these saboteurs inside the administration?

    If we figure out the answer to THAT question, we’ll probably unravel the whole freakin’ ball of yarn explaining all kinds of apparent self-defeating decisions.

        I’m sure it wasn’t your intent, but your post is misleading without any references other than a “person on Lou Dobbs” or some other specific references to check. Also, are you sure about the “grade C” reference?

        A majority of the people we are talking in this article are part of the Senior Executive Service (SES). Some may be political appointees, but many are not. They were most likely made part of the SES during Obama’s time.

        It’s complicated. You can’t just fire them. Hell, Congress had to pass special legislation to get some of the worst SES from the VA, and a few of them won their jobs back under appeal.

        Even during a Reduction in Force (RIF), much of this dead weight in the State Department is entitled to placement assistance.

        OPM offers placement assistance (45 days) to try to place the executive elsewhere in the government. If the executive cannot be placed in any SES position, he/she is removed from the SES, but is entitled to placement in his/her agency at GS-15, with saved base pay.

        Sorry for the long reply, but it’s sometimes necessary when correct incomplete and misleading information.

        Hope this helps. More here below.

        billsv, apparently if Trump opens a “new” department, they can be removed from a department as no longer needed. Agree, remove public unions for them and teachers (why I didn’t want to continue paying dues to support the democrats and left off teaching), let them live on the same benefits we have, be reviewed every 6 months as to what they have done and accomplished (which we know in many cases they were teaching them dances, plays, you name and so nothing really done – which is a great job with great pay when you do little to nothing). Difficult to remove them but NOT impossible and we will see more thousands moving out (Trump has removed quite a few and when the cannon fires, we will see more removed in EVERY department). Tillerson is a great businessman the same as Trump so eventually we will see the plan in COLOR!

    Of all days for this post… I had an experience today with the State Department in Bern Switzerland. I need a SSC number for my child to claim an exemption on the tax return I need to file in the US (as one of the only countries in the world that requires citizens resident in another country to pay taxes on income outside of the US – Eritrea is the only other one and most people won’t know where that is)

    I went with all paperwork in hand and they informed me that as of October 1, they no longer are accepting applications for SSC numbers – that I must go to Frankfurt Germany to the FBU – Federal Benefits Unit. They said it was a change in the regulations… however I pressed and from what I can tell all they were doing in Bern was forwarding the information to the FBU in Frankfurt and confirming they had seen original documents.

    There is no real reason for this change, except I’m certain are not happy with budget cuts, so they are doing things that don’t save money but will cause their customers pain and blame the Trump / Tillerson budget cuts. It’s absolutely ridiculous.
