State Department Waging “Open War” on White House

The U.S. State Department has backed away from a demand that Israel return $75 million in military aid which was allocated to it by the U.S. Congress.

The repayment demand, championed by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, was described as an underhanded attempt by the State Department to derail a campaign pledge by U.S. President Donald J. Trump to improve relations with the Jewish state.

The dispute is the just the latest example of what appears to be a growing power struggle between the State Department and the White House over the future direction of American foreign policy.

    Things are bound to come to a head, but this depends on where Jared and Ivanka stand. Stay tuned.

      From what I have read so far Jared is determined to raise that old failed policy of demanding “peace negotiations”, which will end as they always do. One cannot and must not negotiate with a group seeking your extermination and the extermination of your country.

        If I remember correctly, if a position is non Federal Civil Service,( an appointed position), all Trump has to say is, “I no longer have faith or trust in you, I want your resignation with in the hour and gone no more then a hour later”.
        They are then gone as simple as that……..I know getting rid of family is a lot more complex then that, but if Trump is not careful those two just might sink him…….

    The state has been at war with the people since Eisenhower.
    He even warned of it and left it as a problem for others to solve after him. It’s gotten progressively more despotic, more secretive and more corrupt with time’s passage.
