It's A Bloodbath At The State Department
nypost.com ^ | February 17, 2017 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 02/17/2017 9:10:13 AM PST by Helicondelta

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.

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

Good, exactly what has been needed for quite some time.

The State Dept. has been filled with domestic enemies and needs a good purge.

Hear that hollow, gurgling sound? That’s the sound of the swamp being drained.

I heard on Maria Bartiromo’s show this morning that they let seven officials go. Seven is not quite the bloodbath that I’m looking forward to but it’s a start!

Use plenty of Obama and Hitlery stain remover and air deodorizer. Maybe even just a good, old fashioned steam cleaning would work as well.

There NEEDS to be a thorough blood bath, house-cleaning, purge of anyone with any allegiance to BHO.

When they hit 7,000 I will start to take notice. I think there are 69,000 in the department so I couldn’t say 70,000.

He wasn’t sent to the State Dept. to keep doing what they do.

Frankly, if there isn’t massive change at State, Trump doesn’t need him to run it.

Doing the job he expected to do.
Refreshing. Excellent.

Hmmm ... maybe they could shore up the Oroville Dam spillway with chained up bundles of lawyers.

Given that we are talking about the State Departing, if there isn’t a wood chipper involved, it ain’t enough of a bloodbath.

Most of these jerk-offs are gone (which probably explains the missing silverware and furnishings).

But apparently STILL some work to do at the White House!

Can’t you just picture these people being walked out the door, and they are crying and running down the street to Barky’s house:

“They fired us!!! What are we going to do now? We can’t have the information we used to have...ohhh what a terrible day...and money, what are we going to do about money, we have millions to pay and now no money!!!”...

ROFL...wished I was there for a picture of all of this!!!

The collective crapping of pants by those not (yet?) terminated must be a sight to see. I hope they are monitoring all electronic traffic and file placement and deletion right now... they have to be in a mad scramble and will catch MANY traitors by this single action.
