U.S. Diplomat’s Resignation Signals
Wider Exodus From State Department

Foreign Policy, by Dan de Luce, Robbie Gramer

Original Article

Posted By:Hpmatt, 12/10/2017 12:30:19 PM

An award-winning U.S. diplomat who was seen as a rising star at the State Department has issued a scathing resignation letter, accusing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Donald Trump administration of undercutting the State Department and damaging America’s influence in the world. Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,

Comments:
YES! Obviosly she was such a rising star -hasn’t everyone heard how she fixed US-Somalia relations? Great work lady...you must have gotten extra credit from that diplomatic breakthrough where you could get 90% of your taxpayer funded pension at 38 y/o...

MAGA!

I am sure she is ready to get on the money-train: from a rececntbUS Aid press release - gotta pay my taxes because the US Constitution says I have to pay for this or go to prison:

Today, the United States announced nearly $639 million in additional humanitarian assistance to the millions of people affected by food insecurity and violence in South Sudan, Nigeria, Somalia, and Yemen. This additional funding brings the total U.S. humanitarian assistance to over $1.8 billion for these four crises since the beginning of Fiscal Year 2017.

As a diplomat, you must know that elections have consequences.

During the eight years Obama was the president, he appointed Hillary Clinton and John Kerry to run the State Department. The world became more violent and the influence, stature and respect of the US tanked as State Department budgets swelled.

American voters rejected Hillary´s policies and corruption and voted Trump to be president to clean house and restore sanity to the State Department. Trump appointed Tillerson as Secretary of State and he has been doing a great job. Too bad your "skills" are not compatible with a well run organization.

Good riddance, you will not be missed.

The fact that she was a "rising star" and so very, very experienced just means that she worked well within the old system, where the mission was to spin your wheels and wave your hands around so it looked like you were doing something.

So now that the State Dept. is facing much needed house cleaning and a refocus of direction, putting the US first, means she would not have been so adept at doing the job as it´s now required.

In other words, no great loss.

Apparently, someone believes that this woman´s public and bitter resignation is bad news. The South Koreans and the Japanese, who are both looking at a terrible regional conflict with North Korea, at extreme peril to their lives, aren´t complaining. This woman´s boss is trying hard to prevent a ghastly war on the Korean Peninsula.

Leave it to some over-rated policy wonk at the State dept. to whine openly about "human rights" just as millions of East Asians are looking at the ultimate actual violation of their own human rights.

I´m still not tired of winning.

"award-winning"?

Is this like the academy awards where actors take time once a year to self congratulate one another. And prove that they are better than everyone else because they wear $20K dresses and insanely priced bling?

People on the Left have real trouble fitting into a world where it is expected that you will actually accomplish something, not just pretend to.

Too bad we cant get rid of some of the other leftists that run the State Dept. Like Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs David Satterfield. And State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert who when interviewed by Matt Lee of the AP both denied there was any change in policy regarding the move that Trump made when declaring that Jerusalem is the capitol of Israel and consequently we are moving the Embassy to Jerusalem. It appears that they are hoping to wait out Trump, for when he leaves the Presidency and is replaced by a liberal democrat so that they can put the kabosh on such changes. Tillerson opposed the announcement that Trump made too.

And there are others. Many, many others after all the years of the State Dept being run by John Fn Kerry and Hillary under the 0bama Regime. The State Dept is absolutely full of leftist skunks and is rogue. Just waiting for another marxist administration. It was full of leftists even before the 0bama Regime took over. They don´t represent America. They represent the UN, Palestinians, Arab countries, European countries and others. But not America. Not really. They are resisting Trump, hoping to wait him out till he is gone.

This woman has been misinformed about the purpose of the State Dept. For decades the State Dept. has functioned incorrectly, eg with no oversight, which was fine with the entire US political class. There was no State Dept. IG for Mrs. Clinton´s entire 4 years at State Dept. It´s no wonder State Dept. personnel viewed themselves as entities separate from their employers, US taxpayers. Some months after Mrs. Clinton left the State Dept. Obama finally nominated an IG.

This is good news. Very good news.

In corporate business, when the Eeyores would wring their hands and bemoan the “turnover” rate, I’d drive them nuts by saying it was “Creative Turnover”. Things were almost always better when some of the deadwood had either been cleared out or took itself somewhere else. (The latter was a gift! No unemployment insurance payments.)

Here is some info on her from article:

Friday was Shackelford’s last day as a foreign service officer after nearly eight years in the State Department.

Born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, the 38-year-old Shackelford graduated first in her class at the University of Pittsburgh Law School. She worked at a law firm, then the consulting company Booz Allen Hamilton on foreign aid projects before joining the foreign service in 2010.

Shackelford distinguished herself in South Sudan for overseeing the evacuation of 1,000 Americans and other foreign nationals when violence erupted in Juba in December 2013. For her leadership skills and crisis planning in the evacuation effort, she received a department-wide Barbara M. Watson award for consular excellence.

(Hit submit too soon) Shackelford only worked at State for O&Co. Hillary. Loretta. One of the goils? Hardly an icon. She started talking about leaving about six months ago. Probably about the time Tillerson said he was going to make big cuts in positions at State.

Can the existing "think tanks" support all these losers? Chances are they can´t, and since millennials don´t read, the books they author will go unread. And since the shopping malls are all closing down, there won´t be any JCPenny´s stores in which they can sell shooes. It´s rough being a liberal in conservative times.

#32 thank you for posting that info on her. Eight years , sheesh a pittance. I personally know a young person that has braved huge dangers during his assignments. His reward was an easy posting for a short bit then off again to another horrible place. He rose steadily in ranks because of his fine work until ‘Bamster buddies took over State Dept. and filled it with political tools. This man warned my daughter NOT to join State even though she could have. He is still there as are many others - listening, watching just doing a good job and knowing Tillerson is there to fix things. Housecleaning is way after Kerry/Clinton way overdue.

The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal.

He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit.

More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign. But almost all of them were Republicans. Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said. (Snip) Congressional officials expect the classified memo to be made available to the public before the end of the month. In order to

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,

Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to
