This article is the first in a several part series which will expose the fact that a major shake up, A MAJOR DRAINING OF THE SWAMP, is going on inside various Federal agencies. President Trump is attempting to drain the swamp of the Obama/Clinton holdovers who are acting as moles and 5th column agents inside of the Federal government. Make no mistake about it, these traitors to the Republic are dedicated to the overthrow of the Republic, as we know it.
President Trump appears to be wise to the threat to his administration and the American people as a whole.
President Trump’s Greatest Threat
Shortly after the election, I wrote that the greatest threat to President Trump would come from mid-level managers in the Federal government who were still loyal to Obama and Clinton.
I am in the middle of breaking a major story on possible State Department coverups with regard to obfuscating information related to child-sex trafficking within the United States. I will be reporting on this State Department fiasco in a future article. The remainder of this article will deal with a purge going on inside the Secret Service.
President Trump is Draining the Swamp the Secret Service
With Secret Service Agents like her, who needs assassins?
Do you remember the case of Secret Service agent, Kerry O’Grady (pictured above), who said in a Facebook post that she would not take a bullet for then candidate Trump. She identified herself as an ardent Hillary suppoter. She is the poster child for the trash that the Obama administration left behind. I believe that she is also the impetus for the draining of the swamp at the Secret Service. After three months of being allowed to stay on the job after her treasonous post under Obama, she has been suspended. It would appear that some of her superiors are being fired and that this is the beginning of a purge at the Secret Service.

Update: according to a CNN report – so as always take with lots of salt – the story has shifted materially, because according to two senior administration officials, it wasn’t a resignation by the State Department officials, but more of a termination: “the Trump administration told four top State Department management officials that their services were no longer needed as part of an effort to “clean house” at Foggy Bottom.”
Patrick Kennedy, who served for nine years as the undersecretary for management, Assistant Secretaries for Administration and Consular Affairs Michele Bond and Joyce Anne Barr, and Ambassador Gentry Smith, director of the Office for Foreign Missions, were sent letters by the White House that their service was no longer required, the sources told CNN.
All four, career officers serving in positions appointed by the President, submitted letters of resignation per tradition at the beginning of a new administration. The letters from the White House said that their resignations were accepted and they were thanked for their service.
The White House usually asks career officials in such positions to stay on for a few months until their successors are confirmed.
“Any implication that that these four people quit is wrong,” one senior State Department official said. “These people are loyal to the secretary, the President and to the State Department. There is just not any attempt here to dis the President. People are not quitting and running away in disgust. This is the White House cleaning house.”
Mark Toner, the State Department’s acting spokesman, said in a statement that “These positions are political appointments, and require the President to nominate and the Senate to confirm them in these roles. They are not career appointments but of limited term.”
A second official echoed that the move appeared to be an effort by the new administration to “clean house” among the State Department’s top leadership. “The department will not collapse,” the second official said. “Everyone has good deputies. It’s a huge institutional loss, but the department has excellent subordinates and the career people will step up. They will take up the responsibility.”
Victoria Nuland, the State Department’s assistant secretary for Europe, was also not asked to stay on.

President-elect Donald Trump has fired, effective Inauguration Day January 20, every U.S. ambassador politically appointed by President Barack Obama, according to a report published Thursday night by the New York Times.
The Times reports the State Department sent out a notice on December 23 informing the ambassadors of Trump’s order. The move sent shock waves through the diplomatic corps as some ambassadors in previous transitions had been given time to leave their post for personal convenience.
President-elect Donald J. Trump’s transition staff has issued a blanket edict requiring politically appointed ambassadors to leave their overseas posts by Inauguration Day, according to several American diplomats familiar with the plan, breaking with decades of precedent by declining to provide even the briefest of grace periods.
The mandate — issued “without exceptions,” according to a terse State Department cable sent on Dec. 23, diplomats who saw it said — threatens to leave the United States without Senate-confirmed envoys for months in critical nations like Germany, Canada and Britain. In the past, administrations of both parties have often granted extensions on a case-by-case basis to allow a handful of ambassadors, particularly those with school-age children, to remain in place for weeks or months.
Mr. Trump, by contrast, has taken a hard line against leaving any of President Obama’s political appointees in place as he prepares to take office on Jan. 20 with a mission of dismantling many of his predecessor’s signature foreign and domestic policy achievements. “Political” ambassadors, many of them major donors who are nominated by virtue of close ties with the president, almost always leave at the end of his term; ambassadors who are career diplomats often remain in their posts.
A senior Trump transition official said there was no ill will in the move, describing it as a simple matter of ensuring that Mr. Obama’s overseas appointees leave the government on schedule, just as thousands of political aides at the White House and in federal agencies must do. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity about internal deliberations, said the ambassadors should not be surprised about being held to a hard end date.”
