Somebody named Rick Manning says there's too many people in government agencies that are sabotaging Trump policies at the Cabinet level.

Manning is President of an organization "Americans for Limited Government".

He wants Congress to somehow reduce funding for federal employees and get 10% - 20% of them out.

With all the leaks and resistance to Trump so far, he might be right.

It's also possible (actually probable) the Obama Administration set up some landmines during the last days after the election.

Could be Obama and Co. used some old tactical guidance from Operation Gladio

It might take a year to get rid of the left-over Obama cultists.


Manning: Sabotage of Trump Agenda by Bureaucrats Should Spark ’10 to 20 Percent Reduction of Federal Workforce’

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning wants Congress to help President Trump get rid of “rogue bureaucrats [who] are not serving the American people” by “cutting the personnel budgets of non-defense civilian departments and agencies, reducing the enacted full-time equivalent number for each department, agency and office by 10 to 20 percent reduction in the workforce on a last-one-in, first-one-out basis,” according to a statement releas ed on Friday

“By now it should be abundantly clear to the Trump administration that there are Obama administration holdovers in the 1.3 million non-defense, civilian federal workforce who have no other intention than to politically damage the White House,” Manning said.

Breitbart News has reported extensively on many ways federal bureaucrats who oppose President Trump’s policies are sabotaging his agenda.

During the very last months, and even days, Obama went on a hiring binge with a flurry of new hires.

Put this in your pipe and smoke it:


Seventeen political Obama appointments across eight different agencies converted to career positions without receiving the required Office of Personnel Management (OPM) approval.


I would say 'sabotage' is a good word for it.

Every single one of those hires needs to be terminated immediately. It's despicable how subversive Obama and the Democrats are. At what point does this become treason? He clearly wants to undermine and his hires and last minute surveillance change. This is unheard of. No exiting president has ever schemed against an incoming administration like this.

Good example of what the problem is.



This is from the same article:

a number of political appointees have been “burrowing in” recently, switching from those roles to permanent federal positions.


Hmmm.

The fact there are permanent federal positions is a problem. No position should be permanent.

That is easily and legally handled by relocating these permanent federal positions to a location in the middle of nowhere, Alaska.

Sack them all and have them reapply on a case by case basis whilst all this is happening I guarantee the country would never of run better.

No problem with the concept, I imagine the execution much like DoD budget cuts will be handled about as badly as you can do so...

Many people in the Civil service workforce are hard working people that love their job and would not leak information to try and sink the sitting president... so of course if anything other than a targeted approach occurs it will be those people fired while the actual problem will persist.

ETA: Examples: a Full time reservist is a civil service position also..
Air craft Depot: extended downtime maintenance for our military aircraft are civil service.

The word permanent in this case means it is a Civil Service position, not subject to the whims of the party in power.

In the old days pre Civil service, every time there was a new administration, all the Federal government employess, from the top to the lowest employees (street sweeper), were subject to be replaced. This was the patronage / cronyism system, based on being in the right party and who you knew to keep your job.

This OSS field manual includes many instances of institutional sabotage which form a template for insider resistance.

Organizations and Conferences

Insist on doing everything through "channels." Never permit short-cuts to be taken in order to expedite decisions.
Make "speeches." Talk as frequently as possible and at great length. Illustrate your "points" by long anecdotes and accounts of personal experiences.
When possible, refer all matters to committees, for "further study and consideration." Attempt to make the committee as large as possible — never less than five.
Bring up irrelevant issues as frequently as possible.
Haggle over precise wordings of communications, minutes, resolutions.
Refer back to matters decided upon at the last meeting and attempt to re-open the question of the advisability of that decision.
Advocate "caution." Be "reasonable" and urge your fellow-conferees to be "reasonable"and avoid haste which might result in embarrassments or difficulties later on.
Managers

In making work assignments, always sign out the unimportant jobs first. See that important jobs are assigned to inefficient workers.
Insist on perfect work in relatively unimportant products; send back for refinishing those which have the least flaw.
To lower morale and with it, production, be pleasant to inefficient workers; give them undeserved promotions.
Hold conferences when there is more critical work to be done.
Multiply the procedures and clearances involved in issuing instructions, pay checks, and so on. See that three people have to approve everything where one would do.
Employees

Work slowly.
Contrive as many interruptions to your work as you can.
Do your work poorly and blame it on bad tools, machinery, or equipment. Complain that these things are preventing you from doing your job right.
Never pass on your skill and experience to a new or less skillful worker.
