Looks like some people "working" for the government are getting a little twitchy about Trump.

Many are worried they are part of the "Swamp" !!

What could they possibly be so nervous about ?

Federal employees step up defiance of Trump


Government employees are growing increasingly willing to criticize or defy the White House and President Trump’s top appointees.

A handful of current and former career staffers in the Interior Department and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have openly shredded their superiors within the last several weeks, continuing a trend that has developed throughout the government over the course of Trump’s tenure in the Oval Office.

The growing opposition in the executive branch comes as the White House’s legislative agenda has stalled in Congress and Trump turns to his Cabinet agencies to change course in several policy areas. It also is emanating from career staffers or political holdovers whose resistance to Trump has, at times, been rooted in deep opposition to the president’s agenda.


“You have Donald Trump, who ran and said he would drain the swamp, meaning them.”

It's sad that the idea of term limits rests on the shoulders of the people threatened with term limits.

It'd be amazing.

But that swamp will never do that to themselves.

The Mooch had it right - if I were Trump, everyone who had a federal position on Nov 8th 2016 would not be employed Nov 9th. That would give CNN & the retards about 6 months worth of hysterical batsh!t crazy to propagandize.

Wonder what happens in the private sector when somebody defies the boss?

Regressive policy. Crap leadership coming from the White House.

They're nervous that their leader is incompetent, and rightfully so. His inability to lead is creating serious fractures across the government and it's only going to get worse.

Sadly, for us 'serfs', I know you are right.

One can hope....Giant Meteor 2020.

That would be a lot of people to fire, for no other reason than whom happened to be in the White House before him.

Wouldn't we want to take in to account their ability to do their job effectively, or are we going to be that petty and stupid?

Mutiny can also be the result of a bad or weak captain who's let down his crew one too many times.

Something to consider.

Fire them all. CLean house. USE this as an excuse to burn the castle.

Have the good eggs apply to be rehired.

Then congress needs term limits. Every office should have term limits except the supreme justices.

Make DC moving companies a billion dollar industry.

If they don't like his policies, they are perfectly free to go out and get jobs in the public sector. I expect they are aware that they are swamp creatures and fear being part of the draining. Poor things don't want to give up their cushy jobs with bennies like the public sector can no longer offer. I guess it sucks to be a swamp creature, eh?

If I were Trump I think I would send my chief of staff over to these agencies to open the door for the whiners and stand while they file out and make their way into the real world.

The last desperate move of a failing power structure as it grasps one last time to maintain it's corrupt rule.

I would say his campaign promise was to purge our capitol of corruption. The entirety of DC should be uprooted and replaced from the pool of talent that we have in the US numbering in the MILLIONS.

We dont need these people.

If they arent going to do their job then they need to leave. We need energetic people who will work as hard as we deserve.

The EPA was the one that couldnt keep their employees from taking dumps in their halls right? That was full some of the worst scum of federal employees that milk a joke job for eternity. Total waste of money and ball of undisciplined, selfish chaos.

Indeed. That is why many people openly ask for the media to be "held accountable" for their reporting on Trump and his actions.

They want to consolidate power. They want to repress dissent.

Not a bad idea. Maybe we should try that instead of putting Trumps family and loyalists in there along with Goldman Sachs and the Billionaire class who have no interest or understanding of the other 99.9% of this country.
