U.S. Embassies Around World Still Refuse to Hang Trump Portrait, Swamp Still in Control

In multiple embassies around the world, particularly those staffed entirely by career Foreign Service officers, no portrait of President Trump or Vice President Pence has been hung. Up until last week, the swamp had an excuse – there was no official portrait and the swamp refused to go to the trouble to find unofficial ones.

But it’s not just the entrances to embassies where it seems the 2016 election never happened. All throughout the government, Obama holdovers who rabidly oppose President Trump and his policies still hold positions of extraordinary power. The swamp is alive and well.

Consider the National Security Council, where Fernando Cutz is enabling Trump’s most mortal enemies – George Soros and the globalist Left – to threaten to topple the pro-American government of one of America’s closest allies, Guatemala.

Fernando Cutz

Cutz is the director of South American policy at the National Security Council. He is a graduate of the Clinton School of Public Service, managed Obama’s cozying up to the Communists in Cuba, was on the Obama National Security Council staff in the “global engagement” office, and is a committed swamp creature of the foreign service genus.

Back to Guatemala. George Soros money and United Nations officials are attempting to use an activist leftist "Constitutional Court" in Guatemala to undermine, and perhaps ultimately remove, President Jimmy Morales. One effect of this judicial coup is to impair the rights of American mining interests in the country. The Guatemalan government has been very helpful in stemming human trafficking and drugs that ultimately wind up in the United States.

Instead of defending American interests and the Guatemalan government against coordinated Soros-driven attacks, the American embassy, with Cutz’s support and oversight, has enabled it. Cutz controls the information flow to Trump loyalists. A maelstrom of swamp bureaucrats at State are in full agreement.

The irony is thick. Soros money and international leftists are Trump’s most mortal political foes at home, while abroad the same gang is seeking to undermine one of America's strongest allies, and yet a man who enables this Soros agenda — Cutz — works in the National Security Council.

But the problem isn’t confined to the State Department or the National Security Council. The swamp is alive and well at the Department of Justice also. There, other ideological radicals and Obama holdovers remain in positions of power, pretending that President Trump’s election never occurred.

Meet Richard Pilger. Pilger is the answer to the Jeopardy question: “Who was asleep on watch at the Justice Department for eight years of Obama and never brought a single case of voter fraud?”

Pilger is still the head of the Election Crimes Branch at the Criminal Division. Pilger is the same DOJ lawyer who was consulting with Lois Lerner as she was targeting Tea Party groups, and refused to answer questions from the House Oversight Committee.
