American Ambassador to Panama Resigns, Saying He Can No Longer Work for Trump


Resignation #1. Let’s see how many more there are in the next few days.

Since the ambassador was an Obama appointee sympathetic to illegals, he’s no great loss except in the sense that a rebellion against Trump could leave Trump out on a limb with no friends except his deplorables.

The Independent

The US ambassador to Panama has resigned from his post on principle, writing in a resignation letter to the State Department that he can no longer serve the Trump administration.

The US State Department confirmed the departure of John D Feeley, saying he decided to “retire for personal reasons, as of 9 March this year”.

Mr Feeley wrote in his resignation letter: “As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the President and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies.

“My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honour-bound to resign. That time has come.”

What?! His “instructors.” He’s admitting that he’s taking orders from somebody, most likely you know who.

The State Department learned of his plans on 27 December, Reuters reported – well before the Washington Post reported Donald Trump had referred to “s***hole countries” in a meeting about immigration.

Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African nations were said to have been among those discussed with the President at a briefing with congressional leaders.

Mr Trump has denied he used that language but admitted speaking in a “tough” manner during the Oval Office meeting on immigration reform and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme.

Mr Feeley was one of the State Department’s Latin America specialists and among its most senior officers.

According to a Spanish copy of the notice of Mr Feeley’s resignation, tweeted by Univision News, the Barack Obama appointee has been in public service for 35 years, in the US Marine Corps and State Department.

The notice said he held an “unbreakable” belief in the need for close ties between American countries.

Under-secretary of State Steve Goldstein said Mr Feeley’s departure was not a response to the President’s reported comments.

“Everyone has a line that they will not cross,” he said. “If the ambassador feels that he can no longer serve … then he has made the right decision for himself and we respect that.”

The Trump administration has taken a tougher stance on immigration from Latin America, most notably with moves to expel hundreds of thousands of immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and Nicaragua who benefited from temporary protection status after natural disasters.

Mr Trump’s alleged “s***hole” comments on Thursday led to outraged responses from Haiti and the African Union. The AU said it was “alarmed” by the nature of the President’s remarks while Haiti’s government criticised “these insulting and reprehensible statements”.

El Salvador’s foreign minister said he had sent a formal letter of protest in response to the reports.

On Twitter, Mr Trump twice denied having used the word “s***hole”.

Feeley will get a lucrative position with a law firm or on Wall Street. There’s no need for him to worry about his future.

If other Obama people make a stink and leave, then President Trump can appoint people who share his beliefs.

  1. I once had a work associate who had done some contracting for the State Department and Foreign Service. He said that to get in and move up the ranks one had to be a blue blood or a queer, preferably both.

    From this birds Wiki page, I see he’s a homo:

    “In September 2014, he [Feeley] assessed the development of LGBT rights in Latin America saying “It is the cultural heritage of machismo, which is a bad thing in many ways … not just in the manifestation of anti-LGBT attitudes”. He added: “We have seen in some places — Argentina, Uruguay — some very progressive, advanced thinking”. He expressed support for Wally Brewster, whose nomination to be Ambassador to the Dominican Republic was encountering opposition because he was in a same-sex marriage.”

    Feeley, who is from Jew Yark, was a Marine chopper pilot. He had 35 years public service so at 57 he didn’t have time to get to know the common folk, as he never had a serious private sector job.

    This jackass is a virtue signaling, self congratulatory fool and mentally unbalanced as well. They let this horse’s ass fly choppers? Well David Ferrie, who really WAS a Ferrie, was a cracker jack pilot for Eastern Airlines who in his time off flew twin engine cargo planes into Cuba carrying arms and ammo and taking back escapees from Castro’s gulags. In Ferrie’s other pursuits, he conspired with Oswald, Seals, LBJ and et al to whack JFK.

    The Wally Brewster mentioned above the senate confirmed unanimously in 2013 knowing full well this guy was a butt ranger. At the time of confirmation the RepubliCUNTs had a 55 seat majority. There’s your principled CONservatives for you.

    Cardinal Jesús López, referred to Brewster as a maricón, equivalent to “faggot, in English.” At least Jesus is sane.

    “It’s not what you know, it’s who you blow.” This seems relevant for state and the foreign ‘service’ and apparently in some Marine assignments. The Navy has long been a nigger hangout, I guess the Marines are now becoming a queer hang out.

    • Chopper pilot qualification is nothing like fixed wing qualification. They’ll let any punk with 20/20 vision fly a whirlybird.

      • It’s true, at least in England. A friend of mine was in the RAF, he was booted of jets and demoted to flying helicopters, he was a lush, they had so much spare time that there was nothing else to do but get drunk. He told me all kinds of crazy story’s, it’s a wonder we ever won any battles with those drunken bastards at the stick.
