Trump Admins Blow Out the #COG on The Seventh Floor
To start I wanted to go over some of the reactions from the media then dip into history on The Seventh Floor, C.O.G., and learn more about Rex Tillerson.

In #1 Margaret Brennan, assigned to the State Department, describes this as a “politically-minded purge” that will get rid of “much-needed expertise” from professional diplomats. During this transition she might be losing some friends or business contacts within the department. It can be a setback for a modern journalist to lose government contacts or for them to lose status.
The “shadow government” is referenced in #3, by sundance. We see the difference in word choice between conservative and liberal media. They link to a document detailing how they’ve given themselves this name called “The Seventh Floor Group” under the Clinton administration.
The career political operatives who reign within the State Department openly view themselves as a distinctly separate state governing authority, with no attachment to the policies or objectives of the United States presidency or any mere elected official therein.
There’s more in that article including how this group has a lifestyle of wealth and protection afforded by their station.
As an aside, these articles reference a quote that it’s irresponsible to fire these people without a replacement. I think that is the message, that no replacement is needed.
Number 4 details connections between Hillary Clinton and the FBI while working at the State Department. Utah Representative Chaffetz named some of the people involved in some alleged cover-ups. Could that be why the press and angry mobs are going after him? One recent incident had a Town Hall group yelling “Do your job!” I think they wanted him to investigate President Trump rather than the State Department and Clinton.
CNN gives us #5. R.C. Hammond, a State Department spokesman says that some of these people might be reassigned into something more productive.
It also gives an interesting quote by an unknown person.
The difference now is they are actually doing work. We think the American taxpayer will appreciate that.
It’s a purge! Some of what these articles say reminds us of the Soviet Union or transitions in power in general. It can also trigger in people the memory of throwing up which is unpleasant.
Article #6 is so inflammatory I kept laughing through every paragraph. I learned nothing from it unless you count how to whip up one’s self into a “politically-minded” fervor.
I was going to stop at #6 but number #7 was begging to get in here too. Part of this was quoted in #6.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson takes a private elevator to his palatial office on the seventh floor of the State Department building, where sightings of him are rare on the floors below.
Who made this office so palatial? Didn’t he just get in there?
former ExxonMobil chief executive is isolated, walled off…
His distant management style has created growing bewilderment
It’s well-worth a read. The use of provocative language throughout is great. The drama! The spectacle! The Palatial State Department… where people have tons of paperwork to do, and reading, and talking, and getting attacked by the media…
C.O.G.(Continuity of Government) is a plan that reestablishes government in case of emergency. An example is that major players in the government hierarchy could be killed in an attack on the nation and C.O.G. will initiate.
Alex Jones and Conservative Treehouse are both reporting on documents coming out of WikiLeaks. The idea is that The Seventh Floor group already put their plan in motion while Clinton was serving in the State Department.
It’s an ongoing issue we’ve seen in modern times like with Operation Valkyrie in WWII Germany, the CDC, FEMA, and now with The Seventh Floor.
Alex Jones says:
C.O.G. had been used to build a parallel government

I’d like to emphasize that the use of disease, pandemic, and nuclear fallout are justifications for starting these C.O.G. plans. Throughout your government education you’ve been briefed on the danger of these disaster scenarios.

It’s not a secret that these programs operate. Ostensibly their purpose is to maintain order and essential services in case of emergencies. We may find out if that is their true purpose.
What happens if the people running the government, intentionally or unintentionally, created a crisis and then use the plans to stay in power?
For example in the current time we’ve got a population indoctrinated into Communist ideology rather than critical thinking. The currency we’ve been issued by fiat is run by people hostile to us. By inflating the currency into the trillions much of the wealth our parents had was destroyed and the debt placed on future generations.
Official policy was to invite in as many brown people into our nation as possible. Those same people do not share our values and are hostile to us like the black population that was already here. The race-baiting media has whipped up each minority group(and white women) into a passionate hate of white people.
Given some of the circumstances I think it does constitute a crisis, possibly even a disease, but the whole thing was manufactured by the rulers. By their own malevolence are they going to see the nation fall then assume authority over the wreckage?
Possibly not. Rex “The T-Rex” Tillerson is in there “reading documents” and “alienating” the staff in his palatial office on the Seventh Floor.
He joined ExxonMobil in 1975 and climbed all the way up to CEO in that organization. This is a really big deal because that company has a world-wide scope and huge impact on the economy. Can you imagine what interesting experiences and knowledge he gained while in that position?
He’s also an engineer so that would indicate he’s able to imagine complex systems and get things to work under difficult situations. That fact is counter to what some of the reporters said about him being inexperienced in government. Tillerson would have had the technological and organizational challenges while working with ExxonMobil. In addition he’d have the added strain of navigating problems the government gave them.
The media is talking about his “Ties with Russia.” “Tillerson has ties with President Vladimir Putin” which are featured on Wikipedia.
It’s difficult to find information about who he is without the liberal spin. He does appear to have been a loyal Republican that only reluctantly accepted the position as Secretary of State. He was going to retire and enjoy spending time with his children and grandchildren. Instead he was convinced by people close to him and then agreed to take the new job.
Rex Tillerson is a man in his sixties who could have had a comfortable retirement but instead was called to service by Donald Trump. The media and other diplomats are constantly criticizing and second guessing his decisions. Making things possibly a lot worse is a situation where the State Department is filled up with people loyal to Israel as detailed by Kay Griggs.
For anyone, even Rex Tillerson, it’s going a very challenging job, potentially the most difficult of his life. The United States federal government is a huge monstrosity. Whatever he is learning about in here is sure to cause him some headaches, nausea, vomiting, and the usual effects of toxicity.
My own opinion is that Rex Tillerson and the Trump administration know exactly who and what they are dealing with. I think one of the greatest challenges that they have is that the general public are unaware of the danger we’re in as a nation, who is involved, and how it could be remedied. Officials like Tillerson are going after big players in the federal government and it is bound to get very very dirty.
