    Madeleine Albright said Thursday she's worried that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson doesn't love his job as much as she did. "I loved being secretary of state, I thought it was the most incredible job in the world," she said on CNN. "And I don't kind of see Secretary Tillerson seeing it quite that way."

    President Trump’s big war right now apparently isn’t with Iran, or North Korea, or Venezuela, or even Democrats and twice-failed presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, says a new analysis: It’s with the State Department. In the U.S. Run by his own appointee, Rex Tillerson, explains a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin. That’s the conclusion of Soeren Kern, a senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute. He’s assembled a big list of times that “Tillerson and his advisers at the State Department have made a number of statements and policy decisions that contradict Trump’s key campaign promises on foreign policy, especially regarding...
  • State Department Waging "Open War" on White House

    09/17/2017 5:05:23 AM PDT · by AmericanInTokyo · 93 replies
    The U.S. State Department has backed away from a demand that Israel return $75 million in military aid which was allocated to it by the U.S. Congress. The repayment demand, championed by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, was described as an underhanded attempt by the State Department to derail a campaign pledge by U.S. President Donald J. Trump to improve relations with the Jewish state. The dispute is the just the latest example of what appears to be a growing power struggle between the State Department and the White House over the future direction of American foreign policy. The...

    The swamp is overflowing. It's on the garden path. It's in the lawn. It's on the front stairs. It's in the foyer. It's certainly in Foggy Bottom. The State Department hosted this month leaders from the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, which represents a number of organizations including American Muslims for Palestine, or AMP, an organization that promotes "extreme anti-Israel views" and "anti-Zionist" propaganda, according to the Anti-Defamation League, which tracks anti-Israel hate groups.

    The Council on American Islamic Relations, a Hamas-tied Muslim Brotherhood front group, met with officials from the State Department Thursday to discuss the ongoing situation in Jerusalem, the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) posted online. The delegation was brought together by an umbrella conglomerate of Islamist outfits known as the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). They went to the State Dept. to discuss the “ongoing Al-Aqsa Mosque crisis and Israel's denial of religious freedom in Jerusalem, which is holy to the three Abrahamic faiths,” the AMP website said. In July, Palestinian terrorists stormed outside the Al-Aqsa mosque compound and...

    A federal judge is ordering the State Department to conduct a new search for more Hillary Clinton Benghazi emails, but Judge Andrew Napolitano said the Trump administration is making the same argument that it blasted throughout his presidential campaign. “The Trump State Department and the Trump Justice Department sent the same lawyers into this judge to make the same arguments that had been made for four years during the Obama years, that we’ve already searched and we are not going to search anymore,” Judge Napolitano said during an appearance on FOX Business.

    A federal judge has ordered the State Department to search the “state.gov” email accounts of Hillary Clinton aides Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jacob Sullivan for records related to Benghazi, as part of a watchdog’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. U.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia Amit Mehta made the call Tuesday, describing the FOIA lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch in March 2015 as “a far cry from a typical FOIA case.” He noted that “Secretary Clinton used a private e-mail server located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as Secretary of...

    A leaked memo appears to undermine significant details in a new book from a witness to the embassy attacks. But its alleged author tells The Daily Beast he didn't write it. The debate over the Obama administration’s actions before and after the attack on the U.S. mission was reignited following an Oct. 27 60 Minutes report featuring an interview with Morgan Jones Controversy over Jones’s interview and book reached a high pitch on Oct. 31 when The Washington Post published details of an incident report allegedly written by Jones that contradicts the account in his book and reveals his real...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Cinton's emails are under investigation again. Hillary Clinton and her staffers still have access to sensitive government information, but that could change. The State Department has opened a formal investigation into whether the former Democratic Presidential nominee mishandled classified information when she was Secretary of State. Depending on the outcome of the probe, Clinton and her aides could lose their security clearances. The State Department has not said when its probe began.

    Break out the champagne The New York Times reported last Friday that “an exodus is underway” in the State Department. The Times didn’t think this was good news; it gave space to one career diplomat who lamented that there was “complete and utter disdain for our expertise.” This could be the best news to come out of Washington since the Trump administration took office. We can only hope that with the departure of these failed State Department officials, their failed policies will be swept out along with them. Chief among these is the almost universally held idea that poverty causes...

    Full title: State Department lawyers removing references to ISIS 'genocide' against Christians, other religious minorities The State Department's top lawyers are systematically removing the word "genocide" to describe the Islamic State's mass slaughter of Christians, Yazidis, and other ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria from speeches before they are delivered and other official documents, according to human rights activists and attorneys familiar with the policies. Additionally, Democratic senators are delaying confirmation of Mark Green, Trump's pick to head the U.S. Agency for International Development who has broad bipartisan support. These efforts guarantee that Obama-era policies that worked to exclude Iraq's...

    Arabs live among themselves in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Jordan, Egypt - no Jews except a few - but are they happy? No, still they’re miserable: family feuds, tribal grudges, civil wars, thousands killed, millions homeless,brother against brother. President Trump needs to have a talk with Rex Tillerson. Tillerson’s State Department has issued a report that blames Israel for…EVERYTHING. Nobody saw that coming. Well I sure didn’t. Love Trump. Tillerson, not so much, even from the start. The report okays Arab violence as a means to redress “frustrations” and “disappointments”…such as “lack of hope in achieving Palestinian statehood.” The Jews,...

    SHOCKING NEW REPORT SAYS "LACK OF HOPE" IS A CAUSE OF PALESTINIAN VIOLENCE Rex Tillerson’s State Department added blistering anti-Israel language to this year’s “Country Reports on Terrorism,” adopting a tone not seen even during the hostile Obama era. On Wednesday, Tillerson submitted the annual report to Congress. This year’s report may come as a shock to the overwhelmingly pro-Israel majority that elected Donald Trump president. The report appears to blame Israel for the lack of peace between the two sides, pointing to a “lack of hope” as a “driver” for Palestinian violence. Tillerson’s State Department concluded that Palestinian terrorism...

    When Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik massacred 14 people in San Bernardino, California in 2015, newly retired Department of Homeland Security Officer Philip Haney was horrified to discover that a major case he spent years developing might have helped prevent the attack had it not been shut down by a branch of his own agency and Hillary Clinton’s State Department. Now, in his ongoing effort to help prevent future attacks by uncovering how the government quashed his case, three federal agencies either have flatly denied they have any communications or records related to the case, known as the Tablighi Jamaat Initiative, or...
