Since the first Department of State was created in 1789, of which Thomas Jefferson was the first appointee.
The Department of State has always been under the direction of the president, which means he is the authority over this “executive department” and the role of the executive departments, are to conduct the President’s policies. This is found in the Constitution in Article 2, Section 2, Paragraph 1 and 2, which specifically state in part:
“The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments…”
“…He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law…”
David Barron of Harvard Law School and Martin Lederman of Georgetown University Law Center, describe it perfectly when they say, this Article in the Constitution is a textual designation of the President as the Commander in Chief, and no one else, would be responsible for performing that role, no matter what it was to entail, and they are correct. They also point out that in respect to certain functions, Congress may not (by statute or otherwise) delegate this power to anyone other than the President. So even though it does take Congress to give a declaration of war, they are in essence handing that declaration over to the President’s control of it, which makes huge sense, as it keeps a democracy oligarchy from ever developing, by ensuring the Constitutional Republic that unites the separation of powers.
So not only is it clear that the President of the United States has authority and directions over all executive departments of which the President appoints directors and “all other Officers of the United States,” To include the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), which is a cabinet position. The same DNI that is in charge of the 16 separate departments which include the 5 military branches, the departments of Justice, Energy, Homeland Security, State, Treasury, and the 5 National Agencies of the CIA, NSA, Defense intelligence agency, Geospatial intelligence agency, National Reconnaissance Office, and the FBI.
The State Department analysis intelligence for the Secretary of State, ambassadors, and the office of terrorism and management. It had its beginnings in New York City, then Philadelphia before ending up in Washington D.C. in 1819. The department started off small, but as time went on, its development, began outgrowing its former buildings, and yet it internally keeps on growing. The duty of the State Department is foreign policy with world nations. Implementing the Foreign policy of the President to be more specific, the State Department only has the authority the current President allows them to have, and guidelines given to them by the President and what he deems appropriate as foreign policy. The problem with the current Intelligence Agencies which includes the State Department (foreign policy establishment) is its growth and evolution post World War II, and the mindset they have separate from the Executive Branch.
It took President Trump to begin to seek out the corruption in Ukraine, as well as in our own swamp, before initiating his foreign policy there, to shine the light on the cockroaches, which started a huge pushback by the corruptors in both countries. When you know the country is corrupt, and then find out family members of the past administration and congress are working there, it gives good probable cause to look into it. Throughout the faux impeachment efforts, the pushback on the President’s authority of implementing his foreign policy has indeed triggered The State Department and Intelligence Community to retaliate by saying it’s not his place to interfere in the already ongoing policies put in place by them and the former president. For the first time since the development of the Intelligence Community, post-WWII, this pushback is showing the world through the leftist elitists and their minion media, that this entity has developed and is doing business as a covert 4th branch of government, working independently from our designed Constitutional Republic. This is no “theory” (a supposition), but it is for sure a conspiracy (a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful). A group of unelected members who are supposed to be under the direct authority of the President of the United States. You don’t have to believe me, just listen to what Democrat Congress Woman, Tulsi Gabbard, who is running for President said at one of the Presidential debates as her closing statement:
“Our Democrat Party, unfortunately, is not the Party that is of, by, and for the people. It is a party that has been and continues to be, influenced by the foreign policy establishment in Washington, represented by Hillary Clinton, and others foreign policy, by the military-industrial complex, and other greedy corporate interests.”
-Tulsi Gabbard Democrat Congresswoman, Presidential Candidate, Combat Military Veteran.
Being inside both the military and the democrats in congress, Gabbard knows more than the average American. No, I don’t want her as our president, but she is head and shoulders above any of the existing democrats at every level. This was just an affirmation to everything that good people have been exposing for years.
Our president, Donald Trump, is doing what needs to be done, and as long as he keeps exposing traitors, the longer we need him in office, at least for another 4 years. The worry and challenge of We The People should be, who we are going to help develop after Trump’s 8 years are gone. We The People need to continue down the path that the Tea Party movement started. The people’s movement created some great awareness and great champions. Through its focus on We The People, the Constitution, and the mindset of defending the vision of our founding fathers, it brought someone like Donald J. Trump to step up to the plate and do what the people have needed for years. To stop the corruption network from developing a 4th branch of government. So start now and begin to rally, coordinate, and network folks to vote for Trump 2020, and vote for other champions of the people from local, state, and federal offices.
