I’ve been trying to imagine what it must be like to be a well paid senior nonpartisan career expert working in one of the federal departments, waiting for a Trump appointee to take over, and knowing his role is to destroy my life’s work and that of all the other dedicated professionals in the department. I decided that there could be only one ethical course of action, but thought nobody actually facing that situation would see it that way. Fortunately, I was wrong.

Add to that the head of the Border Patrol, who is gone; no one knows whether he resigned or was fired, but he is gone. A career civil servant who understood and explained why a wall will not work.

very sadly noted, our State Department workers are good, honest and NON-Partisan or NON-Political and just do their jobs every day to try and make our country and world a better, safer place

It is more like, in the Frump administration, Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter: But, "Then suddenly on Wednesday afternoon, Kennedy and three of his top officials resigned unexpectedly, four State Department officials confirmed." I hope career staff who can afford to retire or leave, do. Let this new administration, I HATE using that word, flounder as it did when it was a campaign. The country will survive that easier than it will survive Frump and his idiot shenanigans. I watched parts of his "interview", lies, complete, ridiculous lies. And he'll keep telling them for as long as his party allows him to stay in the office. It isn't like people don't KNOW they are lies, everyone does, even his acolytes will have to admit that at some point, the rest of the world already knows. I suppose the upside is the more insane he gets the harder these clowns will fall in 2018 and 2020 even if the Democrat's can't get their act together.

I don't know, Animae...I wish we'd just hit rock bottom and bail out in the elections next year!

Since he has no diplomats to other countries appointed (and made old ones resign) and now is without SOS management team--he really has no way to negotiate anything with other on NAFTA...this one is important TC

The solid bodily waste ejecta are definitely starting to impinge with great force upon the electrically-powered rotary air circulation device.

Indeed, very worrisome, read about this this afternoon.
They're all bailing, and quite frankly, I don't blame them.

Seems like utter chaos and insanity is the order of the day. The latest prediction for the Grump;s Wall is $15-40 billion to come out of taxpayers' pockets. How's that going to impact the economy of the country?

Nectarine Nero....BWAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA love it! I frikken LOVE IT that they all resigned en masse. Wish a hell of a lot more of them do the same thing in departments that really are crucial. What a statement....what a RESISTANCE!!!!!!! They rather quit or retire than serve one day under the TYRANT and his Nazi Regime.

The article states: " Kennedy will retire from the foreign service at the end of the month, officials said. The other officials could be given assignments elsewhere in the foreign service."That would suggest that they didn't resign but were take from their posts, to make room for Drumpfian acolytes.

Don't worry about the misunderstanding TomCat. I'm sure there will be many of these news flashes which are just too unbelievable for our brains to accept at face value in time to come.

Thanks all. Hugs and stars. Arielle is correct. They did not quit. The Fuhrer purged them. I have posted a correction. See today';s lead article.

He is Firing , Freezing and Threatening where he should be doing as promised , hiring and creating new jobs. He is a five year old brat in a constant tantrum. I fear his head might explode. Lol, hope there is a camera on him when it happens, It will break the internet.

JL, perhaps Drumpfenfarten will look to Russia to provide consular services and negotiate with other countries. Very sad! . . . for the US, and for the world!

"That amounts to a near-complete housecleaning of all the senior officials that deal with managing the State Department, its overseas posts and its people."

When I see the word 'housecleaning', I assume it is a top down orchestration, having been housecleaned out from my last job. It is quite obvious that Drumpfenfarten wants only 'yes men' in his administration. IDIOTS!!!

The years of knowledge walking out the door is astounding. This will be a huge impact on not only these agencies, but on all agencies that relied on these officials.

A leader that is ignorant, egotistical and insecure with NO ONE to guide him. A ship without a rudder can not sail.

Getting to this one late…by a few days. That, however, does not mean that the idiocy shown at the POUTUS, oh, nice typo, yes, it's the pouting POTUS, will not cease and desist, of its own will. But, maybe its own idiocy will grind it to powder!
