There was a recent resignation in the State Department of an employee who came aboard when Barack Obama was president.
Hearing the reason why he resigned was not shocking when you consider who hired him.
Josh Paul, a senior official in the State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, has tendered his resignation.
The reason that Paul gave for tendering his resignation should be a real eye-opener for moderates in this country.
Paul posted his resignation on LinkedIn, more than likely hoping he would get a bunch of virtual slaps on the back for doing the right thing.
Only, in my opinion, he pointed to what is becoming a glaring problem with the Democrat Party.
He wrote, “I made myself a promise that I would stay for as long as I felt the harm I might do could be outweighed by the good I could do. In my 11 years I have made more moral compromises than I can recall, each heavily, but each with my promise to myself in mind, and intact.
“I am leaving today because I believe that in our current course with regards to the continued — indeed, expanded and expedited — provision of lethal arms to Israel — I have reached the end of that bargain.”
The statement continued, “This Administration’s response — and much of Congress’ as well — is an impulsive reaction built on confirmation bias, political convenience, intellectual bankruptcy, and bureaucratic inertia. That is to say, it is immensely disappointing, and entirely unsurprising.”
Now, this is someone who is supposed to have loyalty to the United States and its allies, yet he is resigning because we have enabled our ally to protect itself against terrorists.
Add this to the rhetoric coming out of the mouths of Democrats like Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and you can see why I have believed for some time that the enemy has infiltrated our government.
These are not statements made by people who love America and want to keep it safe.
