Unleashing the T-Rex (Sunday Sermonette)

Thanksgiving wasn't enough for LSP. He's doing another feast day today...but today's sermonette is not about that.

ASK NOT what your T-Rex can do for you but what you can do for your T-Rex!

I'm working out of a US Embassy at the moment and there is a lot of teeth gnashing over the work that Rex (T-Rex) Tillerson is doing to reduce the size and wastefulness of government and to drain the swamp. 

He could only do what he's doing with the full and complete support of President Trump.

The  Foreign Service and condescending DC elites cannot fathom why they are unable to stop Secretary of State Rex Tillerson from streamlining the mission of State. They keep reporting that President Trump is going to fire the T-Rex and the Washington Post duly relates their predictions to the (gullible) American public. It's trumpeted by the corrupt, lying, sly, smug, filthy mainstream media on every channel. But it still doesn't happen...what can be done?

The minions of the T-Rex start with two questions that are put to State Department drones:  “What is your specific and quantifiable value to the core mission of the United States Department of State; and how do we measure your effectiveness therein? Go ahead and write down your answer. Here's a piece of paper and a cheap pen. I'll wait."

"HOW DARE YOU ASK (you cretin)!!!????" The question is offered in reply with a quivering lower lip. 

The truth is that we spend billions/trillions on absolutely nothing, but it's been a place for protected pets for a very long time, many with degrees from Harvard and the Ivy League. Some are Skull-and-Bones Yale people who had an implicit guarantee that they'd be set for life, would be paid a princely fee and wouldn't have to do anything but sit on a committee that deals with interruptions in bird migration patterns or some such. T-Rex doesn't care any more than a Jurassic tyrannosaurus rex would.
(The Conservative Tree House) No-one, repeat NO-ONE, could have pulled off what T-Rex is accomplishing except T-Rex himself; with the full support of President Trump, of course. The former leader of the worlds largest private business, Exxon-Mobil, is now systematically bringing efficiency and effectiveness to the worlds largest public institution, the State Dept.
The lack of reasonable answers within the bureaucratic ranks is leading to massive downsizing.
Making America Great Again means Making Interventionism Irrelevant AgainThe New York Times outlines why the diplomatic retention of irrelevant snobbery is vital to those within the State Department’s cocktail circuit influence network. At the rate Tillerson is going he might even eliminate the entire staff for the Assistant Cultural Ambassador to the U.N. Center for Biodiversity and Southern Hemispheric Aquatic Species Rights. That’s the threshold where things are really going to get ugly: 
New York Times […] For those who have not been dismissed, retirement has become a preferred alternative when, like Mr. Miller, they find no demand for their expertise. A retirement class that concludes this month has 26 senior employees, including two acting assistant secretaries in their early 50s who would normally wait years before leaving. 
The number of those with the department’s top two ranks of career ambassador and career minister — equivalent to four- and three-star generals — will have been cut in half by Dec. 1, from 39 to 19. And of the 431 minister-counselors, who have two-star-equivalent ranks, 369 remain and another 14 have indicated that they will leave soon — an 18 percent drop — according to an accounting provided by the American Foreign Service Association. 
The political appointees who normally join the department after a change in administration have not made up for those departures. So far, just 10 of the top 44 political positions in the department have been filled, and for most of the vacancies, Mr. Tillerson has not nominated anyone.
"But--but--but," the global elite sputter at the club, sloshing down their third Singapore Sling and chomping down a sweet-and-sour shrimp, "what about the new One World Government that we've been working to forge?" 

"Sorry. If it doesn't make America great again, there is no job. Maybe you can find work bad mouthing the President at Cal Berkeley?"

Ted Kennedy's boy, Patrick Kennedy
Illuminati shill or just lazy?
Are the Kennedy Family 
Appointees Safe?

Please, don't tell me that even the Kennedy family is on the chopping block! This is a sermonette, not a horror show.
Even before Mr. Tillerson was confirmed, his staff fired six of the State Department’s top career diplomats, including Patrick Kennedy, who had been appointed to his position by President George W. Bush. Kristie Kenney, the department’s counselor and one of just five career ambassadors, was summarily fired a few weeks later.
The liberal panic at the deconstruction and realignment of their most cherished institution (run by Hillary herself) has been the topic of discussions in elite clubs from New York to DC (which is where everyone whose anyone is - unless they're vacationing in the Hamptons or at Martha's Vineyard) -- or meeting with George Soros at La Costa (San Diego, California) as happened this past week.
“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.”- Nicolo Machiavelli
SECSTATE Rex Tillerson and President Donald Trump want to make America great again. Greater than ever before. Gutting Hillary's State Department is a good first step. It's a cool place to put the enema pipe.

    1. Everyone there is uncomfortable, checking their positions (checking their 6 o'clock) to see if there is a T-Rex stalking them. So many of them were/are mawkish toadies that it is difficult explain (other than 'politics') how they survived. They were the single largest repository of elitism and liberalism in the USGOV and many of them are retiring short of tour/career.

  3. That was wonderful!! I had heard some glimmerings of Tillerson shaking things up at State, but I had no idea he was being so effective. State is probably the most anti-American department in the Fed.gov (yeah, I know: lots of competition from DOJ and others). The fact that he's striking fear into the hearts of these useless meat sacks is great in itself; getting rid of some is even better.

    Add in this pure gold line, At the rate Tillerson is going he might even eliminate the entire staff for the Assistant Cultural Ambassador to the U.N. Center for Biodiversity and Southern Hemispheric Aquatic Species Rights. That’s the threshold where things are really going to get ugly:

    Plus, I had never heard him referred to as T-Rex, so double thanks.

    1. Eliminating the Kennedy clan from US STATE is just about the kindest thing that SECSTATE could have done. The word "meat sack" applies to them nicely.

  4. Trump/Tillerson welfare reform? From the security of the government teat to the private sector? Oh, the humanity!

    1. The Kennedy family used the family treasury as a golden parachute to migrate to board positions on family owned companies and had angled toward places like the Clinton Foundation (now defunct). Even absent Clintonia, there are other liberal bastions an universities who will pay big to have their likes on a board of regents, etc.

  6. I guess there is potential for funding of former US bureaucrats from countries that used to pay to the Clintons. They will probably be willing to pay the extra cost of funding the leftovers. This will secure their salary until the next president some time in the future will be willing to spend taxpayers money on this tremendously important group of people. I guess it is just a matter of time before Democrats will start a campaign towards countries wanting a future benefit from the US. I guess the Russians will find an oligarch or five, or maybe even Soros, willing to spend money and it will have nothing to do with Kremlin. The FBI will confirm that. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/11/26/fbi-didnt-tell-u-s-targets-russian-hackers-hunted-emails/895634001/

    1. The FBI hosts parasites just the way that the State Department does. There are not so many, of course, because the FBI is smaller and actually has a mission (if it does that and stops being a political pawn). John, the Dems would like to start campaigns featuring future benefit, but since they control neither legislative house, don't dominate in the Supreme Court, don't control the executive, and don't control the legislatures in 33 states nor a majority of governor's offices, it would be a fool's bet to take at this point.

    2. PS- My friend "M", who you have met was at the La Costa conference with Soros last week.

    1. +1, although I am reminded of the book 'Shogun'. At some point in the story, a seer tells the main bad guy that he will die "very old". He takes the meaning literally and believes he will live a long life.

      After his side loses the climatic battle, he is buried up to his neck, and passers by are invited to use a bamboo saw on the most notorious neck in the land. He did indeed die very old.

  9. They are doing everything they can to get rid of T-Rex, and that continues, daily, if not multiple times a day. Everyday it seems more and more shrill! :-D
