The globalist “swamp” in Washington, D.C., is aiming to put top Hillary Clinton aide Joseph Macmanus (shown) into a key post, U.S. ambassador to Colombia, according to GOP sources cited in news reports. If the plot succeeds, it would potentially help keep under wraps the sordid details of the Obama administration’s betrayal of Colombians to the mass-murdering Castro regime and its hordes of communist FARC terrorists. It would also give the globalist establishment — widely ridiculed today by conservatives as “the swamp” — a reliable operative to advance the machinations in Colombia that numerous experts say will set the stage for an eventual communist takeover of that once firmly anti-communist nation. Conservatives in the Senate and beyond, though, are speaking out in an effort to derail the plot.
News of the scandalous push to install Macmanus as U.S. ambassador to Bogota was first reported in mid-September by the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative-leaning online publication that focuses on national security. According to the Beacon, the potential nomination was being pushed by, among others, Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Tom Shannon, described as “a career foreign service diplomat” who “is considered Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s right-hand man.” The deeply controversial nomination is also said to be supported by Tillerson himself, who has a troubling history of promoting globalism. It was not immediately clear whether President Donald Trump was onboard, or whether he knew of Macmanus’ “baggage.” But multiple reports suggested the former Clinton aide was seen as a frontrunner for the nomination.
Among other concerns expressed by critics is the fact that Macmanus has a long history of service to the “swamp” and the most infamous swamp creatures within it. In January of 2009, for example, he took the job of executive assistant to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He served in that post amid the Benghazi mega-scandal, in which several Americans were killed amid the Obama administration’s lawless activities in Libya and the broader Middle East — illegal wars, gun running, secret operations to arm terrorists, and more. In that capacity, Macmanus was “the senior professional aide” to Clinton. In other words, he knows where the bodies are buried, so to speak. Indeed, Macmanus reportedly played a leading role in the entire Clinton-Benghazi affair, including the subsequent lies put out by the administration — even though documents obtained by Judicial Watch prove Macmanus knew the claims about the attack having to do with an “anti-Islam video” were false. He is also involved in the e-mail scandals.
Another claim to fame for Macmanus has been his role in funneling U.S. taxpayer money into unconstitutional foreign-aid schemes promoting left-wing extremism, globalism, and other anti-American ideologies overseas — and then covering it all up when lawmakers got curious. While serving as the executive secretary of the Bureau of Legislative Affairs, Macmanus was asked about the U.S. Agency for International Development, also known as USAID. Senators wanted to know, for instance, why the tax-funded bureaucracy
