Here is the bio of this worthy, a career Foreign Service officer currently stationed in Washington:
On June 1, 2015, Mark Toner assumed the role of Deputy Spokesman. Mr. Toner returns to the Spokesman’s Office from the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs, where he served as a Deputy Assistant Secretary. He is a career Foreign Service Officer who has served overseas in West Africa and Europe. Mr. Toner was the Information Officer in Dakar, Senegal; the Public Affairs Officer in Krakow, Poland; and the Spokesman for the U.S. Mission to NATO, in Brussels, Belgium.
In Washington, Mr. Toner has worked as a senior advisor for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee; as a Senior Watch Officer in the Department’s Operations Center; and as the Director of the European Bureau’s Press and Public Outreach Division. Mr. Toner has an undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame and a graduate degree from National Defense University’s Industrial College of the Armed Forces. Prior to joining the State Department, he was a Peace Corps volunteer in Liberia, West Africa, and carried out graduate work in Journalism at the University of California at Berkeley.
In the old days, such deportment would have been grounds for demotion or firing. In the current administration, it will be…oh, who cares what it will be? Certainly, it would appear that no one in this sad excuse for governance even believes in the rule of law, at least not when it comes to their own behavior. Mr. Toner may well continue to enjoy his gallows humor during the dying days of this horror movie. I hope and pray we’ll be able to leave the theatre next January. The French, for example, currently have no exit.
But just for the academic exercise, of the two examples of lawlessness sourced below, which it worse? Yes, I am keeping it simple by limiting my sampling to two. Someone who can bear to do so will be publishing the whole book – all
three five volumes – next year. If they’re smart,
they’ll have good security before doing so.
So…do you think it’s
- Hillary’s willful violation of the rules regarding email security, a violation that appears to have added to her Kill List;
or do you prefer
- Obama’s secret transfer of ransom money to Iran in order to free American captives there?
Notice that both lawless actions involve Iran, i.e., Obama’s best friend in the Middle East.
So y’all decide. Moi? Time to order new barf bags.
Oops. It’s really time to leave for my root canal appointment. Well…that explains my dysphoric post. I just remembered it’s Doomsday @ the Dentist…we’ll be absent for a few hours…
