OMG We’re Doomed


The big story in the “news” today. From the fake take at the WaPo:

The State Department’s entire senior administrative team just resigned

“It’s the single biggest simultaneous departure of institutional memory that anyone can remember, and that’s incredibly difficult to replicate,” said David Wade, who served as State Department chief of staff under Secretary of State John Kerry. “Department expertise in security, management, administrative and consular positions in particular are very difficult to replicate and particularly difficult to find in the private sector.”

Gee, what any guy who probably never worked in the private sector outside of college would say.

Breitbart has the honest news, of course. You want to read the whole article.

The American Foreign Service Association also shot down the narrative about mass resignations: While this appears to be a large turnover in a short period of time, a change of administration always brings personnel changes, and there is nothing unusual about rotations or retirements in the Foreign Service. Indeed, both are essential to the development of a steady stream of experienced leaders ready to assume critical roles at State.  “Given the talent available in our diplomatic corps, we expect that the new Secretary will have no trouble finding the right people at State to fill out his senior leadership team.”

Yep. Plenty more where those came from. They can fill those critical roles. With talent you just don’t find in the private sector. Yes sir, noooo problem.

    Maybe when they clean out their desks, they’ll find that missing $6B. You can hire a lot of incompetent State Department flunkies for $6B.

    These guys were not sleeping on the job. Like most gummint bureaucrats, they were watching internet porn, or using social media to promote anti-Trump rallies.

    Like I read somewhere else, “great the swamp is draining itself.”

      It’s the silver lining to the misery of the past eight years. Should be another 30 years at least before we elect another lib and/or RINO president and I’ll probably be dead by then anyway.
      Which is nice.

    Turns out, they were ACTUALLY fired
    They were lucky, especially Kennedy , to be not fired out of a CANNON

    The guy in the baby-blue shirt, “Jabba the office worker”, what does he do? Did he get a government job because he “washed out” of the “Hostess taste testing” position? I heard he’s from a Scandinavian country and his name is “Lar Dass”! He went to buy a belt and they had to cut around the cow TWICE! He burst his waterbed and caused a tsunami, (surfers thought the 20 foot wave was cool). His umbilical hernia operation required the use of a back-hoe. X-rays are expensive for him because Superman charges by the hour!

    I used to work as a federal contractor to the US military on an Army base. Whatever federal employees said can’t be done or they refused to do was done by us federal contractors. They even would try and sabotage our projects and put up posters not to trust us because we are capitalists (federal employee got paid more than us, had better benefits, had seniority, had tenure, hard to fire) so we moved the databases down to Huntsville and Clinton closed down the base we worked at. A lot of federal employees ended up being retired and Clinton was able to create a surplus.

    Note this is not all federal employees, and yes they would read books, newspapers, play video games, and other stuff on government time. I learned later that one was fired for surfing porn, and sent some to a federal contractor who was female and they had a sexual harassment issue to deal with.
