The State Department's broken, but Trump didn't break it...
Oh, it's so broken, the US State Department like the rest of the ''Deep State'' unelected Bureaucrats are active enemies of the American people and constitution. From Ex-CIA Bin Laden hunter Michael Scheuer's blog, http://www.non-intervention2.com;
U.S. diplomats are among the republic’s worst enemies
Posted on November 17, 2019 by admin
The televised impeachment hearings this past week will be very useful for the American people. What each witness said will help the citizenry understand part of the reason why the United States gets into so many wars — U.S. diplomats side with foreign leaders — and why their taxes are spent and wasted in foreign countries, and always are channeled to the local favorites of the Democratic party, particularly to George Soros’s network of subversive, anti-U.S. organizations.
Posing as a demure, Shirley Temple-like innocent, the fierce Democratic partisan Yovanovitch, in particular, explained this to Americans. After preaching to the committee that no government should be allowed to interfere in the elections of another country, she admitted under oath that neither she nor her embassy staff made a single attempt to stop either the then-Ukrainian government’s long and vicious campaign of public attacks on candidate Donald Trump, or its creation of the false evidence which it provided to the FBI to nail Paul Manafort. I wonder how much of a gratuity she got from George Soros and/or Hillary Clinton for doing nothing to protest the pro-Clinton, Ukrainian government’s rhetorical and material intervention in the 2016 election? Yavanovitch also is reported to have arranged the electronic monitoring of U.S. journalists working in Ukraine to investigate the crimes there of the Clinton Foundation, Burisma Energy, and the flamboyant and hysterically inept Biden criminal family.
A few other points about the hearings are worth noting:
–Taylor (who worked for Soros-funded groups), Kent, and Yovanovitch provided no information about improper behavior by President Trump. They did, however, present endless and self-aggrandizing personal views about how U.S. foreign policy should be conducted, as well as their intense resentment of the President for not agreeing with, and following in an unquestioning manner, their sage advice based on long experience. They also resented the President and his advisers for ignoring “inter-agency policy agreements” on which of his policies should be followed and which to ignore. In short, these three senior time-servers were claiming that only senior bureaucrats, rather than the constitutionally designated elected official, ought to formulate and manage U.S. foreign policy.
In my own experience, the inter-agency process is designed for only one purpose, and that is to prevent the full and immediate application of policies that the president has directed to be pursued. During the Soviet-Afghan Communist-Mujahedin War (1979 to 1992), for example, only CIA and NSA reliably labored to implement President Reagan’s policy of driving the Red Army from Afghanistan. The State Department led the effort of other agencies to slow-roll or derail Reagan’s orders in order to protect the Democrats’ beloved Gorbachev and his barbarous Soviet regime. This resistance to Reagan also wanted to provide weapons not to men who would kill Soviets, but to Afghanistan’s Gucci guerrillas, corrupt men who wore suits; talked a lot, often in English; ran heroin internationally; and fought not at all.
–This loathsome diplomat threesome also underscored the enormous difference between Trump’s “America First” foreign policy and their “Ukraine First” foreign policy. Not one of the diplomats could find fault in anything the Ukrainian government wanted U.S. taxpayers to finance. Indeed, they were upset that working stiffs in the United States have not been forced to fork over more of their taxes to help Democratic-allied diplomats like themselves to pal around with the generally corrupt Ukrainian elite, while allowing the latter to stuff their private bank accounts with U.S. tax dollars. This sort of behavior is common to all U.S. diplomats and especially those of ambassadorial rank. They do not represent the republic, but rather the foreign government to which they are accredited. For these people, who are falsely identified as loyal U.S. ambassadors, America is never right and never, ever first. Once installed in a foreign capital, they are the ambassador of the local government – rich, poor, democratic, authoritarian, or tyrannical — in its unending campaign to extort as much money, military assistance, loan guarantees, and other booty from the U.S. government and people as possible. They also actively belittle the president to local government officials and political leaders and assure them it is safe to ignore what he says. Overall, U.S. ambassadors are a lethal, anti-U.S. cult of the savagely self-interested.
–The only true thing that these three sad hacks had to say must have almost caused Schiff’s blood to shoot out of his ears. First, Kent somehow allowed himself to tell the truth, acknowledging that the Ukrainian energy company Burisma is deeply corrupt and that both it and Hunter Biden should have been investigated. Then Yovanovitch slipped and told the truth. She clearly acknowledged to a questioner that she had been briefed by Obama’s gang, before her Senate confirmation hearings, about the increasingly strong stink of corruption that was hanging over Burisma and the drug-using, tossed-from-military Hunter Biden and his father. Obama’s pukes also advised her on what to say and how to deal with the issue in her hearings and during her tenure in Kiev. Interestingly, when asked if the Obama briefers who had prepared her for the Senate hearing had supplied her with the same kind of data about the innumerable number of other deeply corrupt Ukrainian companies, which the three diplomats already had said threatened U.S. interests, Yovanovitch puased for a moment, searched her memory, but could not remember any such data, probably because there were none.
Schiff’s farce will continue for at least another week, but it is now clear that the three star witnesses struck out, and that there is nothing that can be said by those remaining in the parade of clownish witnesses – unless one or more decides to commit perjury — that merits even a passing thought of impeachment. The most positive thing to come out of the hearings so far is the reality of how abominably the U.S. citizenry is served by their State Department and its diplomats. Indeed, the three witnesses made it clear that they are operating to serve the regimes to which they are accredited and themselves. In all cases, the republic, in their view, can take the hindmost
I am being harsh here on U.S. diplomats. My views, however, are shaped by experience. The U.S. ambassador in Saudi Arabia – with his intelligence adviser, John Brennan – worked tirelessly with CIA chief George Tenet, in 1997-1999, to stop all attempts to capture or kill Osama bin Laden. All of them feared the Saudis would be angry at America — and end their payoffs? — if an U.S. attempt to eliminate bin Laden was successful. Earlier, in the mid-1990s, the U.S. ambassador in Qatar and Clinton’s so-called “terrorism czar” forbid the execution of a CIA operation to try and capture an al-Qaida ally named Khalid Shaykh Muhammad. These founts of wisdom asked the Qatari government to arrest the man and turn him over to U.S. authorities. The Qataris snapped to attention and acted immediately — by warning Khalid Shaykh Mohammad and allowing (helping?) him to escape from Qatar without a trace. You may recall, that this fellow – more commonly called KSM – was later to be the operational commander of the 9/11 attacks. Such is traditionally the type of disasters that the State Department and its ambassadors are ready to inflict on their fellow citizens so long as can they keep their host regime happy, and probably their own bread being buttered by the foreigners..
The information in the foregoing paragraph is, of course, well-documented. The verifying documents can readily be found in the archive of the 9/11 Commission. I know this because I hand delivered them in a fat, three-ring binder — double-wrapped for security, of course — to the head of the Commission. For some reason the validating papers in the archive have not yet been published for the review and education of the American people. I believe that the citizenry would find the archive’s papers quite informative. Indeed, they might be so convincing as to make the republic’s collective trigger finger pull, pull, and keep pulling, and so begin to eliminate those who are torturing, fleecing, and deliberately killing the republic, its economy, its laws, its liberties, its cohesion, its children, and its religion.
President Trump, please release those papers. Time to let the cards fall where they may.

I am still a Socialist of sorts, but I always loathed Liberals, and still do. What Michael Scheuer is talking about is one of the biggest clump of reasons why.
