Justification from the State Dept: “...furniture, art and tableware that are provided by the Department of State to our embassies and residencies abroad represent U.S. cultural and manufacturing excellence to our host country guests.”

LOL! We can’t have just ordinary crystal either. Oh no! We want the best of the best for the purpose of representing our “manufacturing excellence!” Again, LOL.

This makes sense.
They will hoist ONLY the finest glassware
to the destruction of America, its allies,
its Ambassadors, and the murder of its people.

Can’t they just go begging to the UK (Waterford) or Austria (known for crystal) and get some freebies? Send the Clintons over there with their hands out. They’re renowned for their carpetbagging.

Another clear example of what is wrong with this government of ours.

While the military is threatening to cut the salaries of our fighting men and women, these dolts are focused on the quality of the vessels that will carry their fine champagne.

I just sent this on to our Congressman. I said, “no money for embassy security, but $10,000,000 for glassware...”.

This is so insulting, and is just one tiny example of the wastefulness that robs us of our hard-earned money every single day.

I am not surprised. Democrats are in power.
