So what happened to protecting the whistle blowers, why even have a whistle blower protection act, if it doesn't protect any one?!

The act clearly states;

The Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 is a United States federal law that protects federal whistleblowers who work for the government and report agency misconduct

Whistleblower Protection Act

Therefore, if the whistle blower has a legitimate reason, they should not be prosecuted, what happened to innocent until proven guilty? Guess we have all seen where that went...right out the window.

Please see article below for more info;

SUMMARY: In accordance with the requirements of the Notification and
Federal Employee Antidiscrimination and Retaliation Act of 2002, the
Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board is providing notice to its
employees, former employees, and applicants for Board employment about
the rights and remedies available to them under the federal anti-
discrimination, whistleblower protection, and retaliation laws.

I apologize, but I may have miss understood your position on this, but i presume you are questioning the implementation of this "No Fear" Act in conjunction with previous whistle blowing acts and the seemingly contradictory position the Fed is tacking on the issue of whistle blowing.

If so, I would agree, however this excerpt

Nothing in the No FEAR Act
alters existing laws or permits an agency to take unfounded
disciplinary action against a federal employee or to

[[Page 13102]]

violate the procedural rights of a federal employee who has been
accused of discrimination.

Does seem to uphold the original act and its integrity.

ETA: To say that this policy seems like a redundancy to waste everyone’s time and its only real purpose is to call a big meeting about whistleblowing to perhaps dissuade people from coming to forward except for in the most serious of cases.

Do you suffer the delusion you are living in a free country? Never underestimate the power of human stupidity. The last ten years it has spread in an alarming pandemic rate. Run or it will get you!

No, I am just a Generation X'er who remembers when we were free, and reminisce of them good ole days...

Some day again, America will be free again.

Or my name isn't John Crichton ADVISOR!

Was I way off base on my comment, that my post warrented no response?

Am I the only one that thinks of this when they hear "No FEAR Act"?

Whistleblowing on, I'm going to have to read more into this to understand it better!

Of course not.

To be honest, I was probably eating my grilled cheese sandwich and surfing twitter. Prefering to comeback and respond to comments in due time.

But since you insist, no your spot on and interpreting my comment well.

I agree, this policy of red tape bs is counter productive at the least, and kangaroo courtish at best.

Kind of comes across as textbook fascism doesn't it? We are living in interesting times.

Perhaps it is time to revitalize the McCarthy era awareness.

It can only get worse, unless more people become aware and understand the direction everything is heading.
