Obama’s Deep State: 78 Appointees Burrowed Into Government

358

A new report from the Government Accountability Office – a watchdog organization meant to keep tabs on the federal government – shows that 78 of President Obama’s political appointees have burrowed their way into the deep state, where they now hold career positions in the Trump administration. According to the report, which was obtained by The Washington Times this week, these appointees included seven who failed to obtain permission for the job switch from the Office of Personnel Management. Subsequently, they were either denied jobs or left on their own accord.

Nonetheless, that still leaves 71 of Obama’s political appointees working in the Trump administration. And how many of them do you reckon support Trump’s agenda on environmental regulations, foreign policy, illegal immigration, spending cuts, and so forth? We’d guess…none. And sure, you can do your job to the best of your ability even when you don’t align politically with the over-arching motivations of the administration, but is that what these people are doing? Or are they leaking to the press, thwarting the goals of the Trump agenda, and intentionally sabotaging the will of the people?

There’s nothing illegal about a president allowing his political appointees to transfer over into career positions, of course, but we have to look at this in its proper light. No administration in history has been besieged by as much outright mutiny as this one. Leaks are constantly flowing to the press, agency heads are openly discussing the ideological differences within the departments, and even the president has made mention of a federal government conspiracy against him. And frankly, you don’t need that many people “off the script” to cause a hell of a lot of trouble. 71 people across a number of different agencies? That’s MORE than enough, and that probably only scratches the surface when it comes to Obama loyalists.

As the Washington Times pointed out, Congress has been concerned about the practice of “burrowing” for some time:

A Congressional Research Service report last year said burrowing frequently occurs during the transition period when one administration is preparing to leave office and a new administration is coming in. CRS said the practice can foster the belief that “the individual who is converted to a career position may seek to undermine the work of the new administration whose policies may be at odds with those that he or she espoused when serving in the appointed capacity.”

Whether this is true in reality or just in perception, we can’t say. But we do know that Trump is facing extraordinary resistance inside his administration, and this could help to explain why that might be.

    Ok you verbalized the problem, what is the solution, if any? These 71 people need to be identified, then vetted-if they are NOT for the new administration, they need to be replaced asap. Why hasn’t this been done already?

    1. Retired says

      You need to ask McConnell that question along with why he is sitting on Trump’s appointments !!

      1. Deby says

        True-but I think we already know the answer to that one- he is a RINO and does not want Trump to succeed. I believe his days are numbered-take the recent Alabama election for example-Trump got some bad advice on who to support, from guess who? Mitchie, and his “guy” lost-big league.

        1. Maxine Smith says

          Trump played McConnell with the Alabama election.

          1. JeromefromLayton says

            The good new is that he congratulated the winner (Moore) and will support him.

        2. Pam says

          Pray Ky will see the light and vote him out. Also that we have a good candidate to replace him.

      2. chucky001 says

        Because he has a conscience?

        1. Retired says

          I would not be so sure about that !!!

          1. SILENTHAMMER says

            Name s, please?

          2. DennisBechtel says

            they are all in the federal registry,you can’t access this unless you are a member or dept. head.the deep state is burrowed in like a tick on a coon hound ,trump will be the like the best flea and tick eradicator ,none of these atypical minds can be changed .they all must be plucked and eradicated.

          3. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Eradicated, that’s a rather harsh solution.

          4. DennisBechtel says

            eradicate we must like ticks on a coon hound these people are alinsky trained ,like Russian spetsnaz.

          5. Retired says

            McCain – McConnell = Peelosi – Schumer are the main ones and to name all the list would be a mile long .

          6. Wayne says

            Ideology is blind or we would not have had 8 years of leftist misery that put Trump in office!!!

        2. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

          No liberal or liberal democRAT has any conscience. Who you trying to kid Sparky?

        3. Kenny Albert says

          The only thing Mitchie is worried about is his wallet.

        4. niknar says

          He does? That’s news to me, & I’ve been hearing about this repulsive creep for decades.

      3. gotabgood says

        got to have the votes… and he don’t!!

        1. Retired says

          So are you finally going to admit we have a chickenshit congress ????

          1. JeromefromLayton says

            Actually, they have done a lot of good stuff but it doesn’t get reported by the lame stream media. Yes, the Senate does need to get busy with the bills that came up from the House.

          2. Retired says

            The media does not want to eat CROW as the saying goes. The anti Trump people will not admit to anything accomplished .

          3. Robert Dostoevsky says

            What good stuff is not being reported?

          4. JeromefromLayton says

            Here’s two for starts: Hearing conservation bill that takes suppressors off the BATFE license list combined with another firearms related bill and sent to the Senate. Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, also off to the Senate. The Snowflakes are screaming about both of them. The Senate has confirmed some of the nominated Judges but they have more to do. So far, most of the real action has come from the White House in the form of Executive Orders undoing the Obamanations such as enabling the Keystone XL pipeline. Morale is up in the Border Control agencies thanks to new management. I’m going to challenge my local Congressman to post a list of the things that have actually gotten through.

          5. Robert Dostoevsky says

            All that has been reported in most of the msm.

          6. gotabgood says

            I realize this is a little late… but you have had a chickenshit congress since 2010

          7. Retired says

            That and who knows about the many decades prior . The computer has made it possible to do a lot of digging and not be dependent on the Media .

          8. gotabgood says

            Truth prevails on the internet… right?
            Someone told me once you can make the bible say anything you want it to say.
            If you can do that to the bible, do you think the internet is holler than the bible?

          9. Retired says

            No you miss understood about the bible , most just dwell on parts of it to their likings . On the internet it just helps you find things to compare against Fake news , just like reading a Union Paper , one has to think for themselves .

      4. Dustevietnamvet says

        Because McConnel needs to go to .

    2. chucky001 says

      Who says it’s a problem? We need some checks and balances on Dolt 45’s idiotic agenda. If those checks and balances come from a “deep state”, then so be it. After all, Tweety has NO mandate despite the bleatings of conservitards to the contrary. The Trumpster LOST the popular vote.

      1. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

        I thank God every morning that America was spared chapter two of the Clinton crime family after eight years of being looted by Obama and his tribe.

      2. Sgt. York says

        And crooked clinton lost the vote that counts as we now have the true Ptrsident,President D.J. Trump. Rember this as we spoke.

        1. Maxine Smith says

          Crooked Killary lost the popular vote too. There were thousands of illegal votes that have been proven but the left continues to act as though noting has been proven. California and a couple of states had more votes than they had registered voters and those “extra illegal votes” for Hillary voided/stoled the Republican votes. How about the dead people that were verified as deceased that apparently got up out of their graves and voted for Her. I guess they weren’t buried deep enough huh. Well, at least all those boxes of illegal votes found in a warehouse by a worker that surprisingly were all for Hillary that would have been used to cheat even more were destroyed. Hillary lost across the board so get over it. Besides I would think that after being denied the path to the White House by the American people she would realize that no one wanted her as POTUS except those too stupid to see what she is. What about the illegal woman that bragged that she voted 5 times and was bussed to the different locations? Who paid for those busses? How about Obama encouraging these illegals to vote multiple times. He just knew that Hillary was going to be elected and then nothing would ever be done to them. Guess the good Lord Jehovah had other ideas. He put now President Trump in place and we the true patriotic Americans voted him in and we will do it again in 2020. We will also vote out all the DemocRats and the RinocRATs. We have had enough. All these Obama appointees need to be removed now. If McConnell wants to stay he needs to get off his behind and get President Trump’s appointees in now or when he comes up for re-election I hope his constituents do what is right and votes him out. America use to be a whole lots better and respected but after the Democrats over the last 30 years (that includes the Bushes) America has gone down hill and really fast in the last administration with the fake POTUS Obama. All thanks to the traitorous RinocRATs that have betrayed the very people that put them in office. It is time to take our country back from these traitors and our vote is the beginning. We need true patriotic Republicans that have a backbone and do not get involved in the sleezy world of the Democrats so they can’t be blackmailed. Time to drain the swamp of all the slime. Let’s get it done.

          1. Pam says

            I think that all Federal level election should have standard rules. Government issued photo ID, standard registration period before a election. No registration the day of voting, documentation to be verified and checked off ,so no multiple voting. In state elections can be controlled by each state. Standardized method of voting would cut out a lot of voter fraud. Which is why it will never happen.

          2. Robert Dostoevsky says

            You need to quit reading YouTube poop.

          3. Maxine Smith says

            Maybe you should. Everything I’ve read has been proven to be true but really it is none of your business what I read or post .

          4. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Illegal voting is being investigated by the current administration, so far only anecdotal incidents have been reported. This is an official investigation by a real hard core “illegal votes are rampant” lead investigator. So far nothing.
            Obama never encouraged illegals to vote, he did encourage their children to vote but they are U.S. Citizens!
            I’m not sure if you think Obama was a fake President because of his policies or if you think he is not a U.S Citizen.

          5. LastnameFirst says

            He most certainly did, I remember watching him on TV. My own eyes, versus your lying azz.

          6. Robert Dostoevsky says

            B.S. He never told illegals to vote. You can think whatever you want but that doesn’t make it true.

          7. Jo Melcher says

            AMEN to this! You are absolutely correct! Let’s get those Republican’s out of there that doesn’t support our President Trump!

      3. Beenthere43 says

        Hillary won the illegal vote!

        1. Maxine Smith says

          Yeah but the illegal votes don’t count. LOL

          1. JeromefromLayton says

            They do in California where she won big (or grande).

      4. SILENTHAMMER says

        Great profile, Chunky. But WHO says he lost the pop vote? And, about the mandate, are you color-blind too? Let’s see, Dolt worth $17B, employs 1200 people, President of the United States? Yup….I think you’re on to something.

      5. Linda Christensen says

        There really is no such thing as a popular vote in a Republic. The President is determined by electorate. You lost get over it.

      6. Donna E Turner says

        Where were the checks and balances on Traitor 44’s?

      7. DennisBechtel says

        if you remove the foreign (illegal) voters and the deceased voters trump won the popular vote also

      8. LastnameFirst says

        Praise God. Now bugger off.

    3. ABO says

      Excellent point Deby. You are entirely correct.

    4. Michael Skok says

      The solution is to move them all into one building without any telephones or computers. Don’t give them any work or assignments to do except knitting pajamas for the poor.

  2. Retired says

    Those 78 are controlled By Obama – Clintons -Soros -UN and Bilderberg society . Look up who attended the Bilderberg meeting in Virginia this year , it was all the world Money Changers to go against Trump . Even our Fed. , Yellen is controlled by them .

    1. tCotUS says

      You got it Retired…These are America’s real enemies, & many still in power..Print & highlight their names, they do not like the spotlight, & afraid of “We the People”…
      Lets send these aholes a message….”Were taking America Back”.

      1. Retired says

        Those are the main ones running to the media.

            By replacing a lot of the media we can change the USA as Donald wants and not like the Demos want.

          3. Dina J. Padilla says

            The communist party pays for these groups to undermine our country. CA. legislators, judges, etc.. & Celebs go where the money comes from including the mideast. No loyalty as an American in la la land, or as I call it, sodom & gemoraha, excuse the spelling.

          4. SD of AZ says

      3. Thinkingman2025 says

        Dial it back some. As a career Civil Servant (meteorologist), I can assure you that a large majority of Fed employees favor Democrats, but our first allegiance is to our country, jobs and Agency. It matters not one bit who is on top. There are adequate laws to deal with leaders, and those laws need to be enforced by DOJ.

        1. Linda Christensen says

          Thank you for you comment. But I believe you can only speak for yourself and there appears to be others that have loyalty to Obama and nothing else. Not Country, not Freedom.

          1. gonzales27 says

            Of course they are not for freedom,that’s what they are out to destroy

          2. John says

            they are all obo’s people and need to be gotten rid of NOW. Why wasn’t that Vegas guy in DC doing us a favor.

          3. gonzales27 says

            Obama is discouraged that Hillary didn’t win to finish his job of destroying America.

          4. Linda Christensen says

            This vote is really a referendum on the Presidency of Obama and he does not like he tally.

          5. gonzales27 says

            American first half black Muslim President-what could go wrong?

            And never realizing that once the goal is attained, they will be the first eliminated.

          7. JeromefromLayton says

            True and that’s why the IG does audits. Remember Deep Throat’s suggestion to “follow the money”? There is government slang for that called Color of Money in which certain activities can only draw from specific budget funds. So, if an activity is working to enable the UN arms control agenda, for example, find that budget line and dry it up. That cuts the head off the snake and sends his or her underlings scurrying around for new jobs.

          8. richard king says

            And those with loyalty to Obama and nothing else are either stupid or treacherous. Obama was, and is, a traitor.

        2. tCotUS says

          Agreed to an extent ..But the Goverment is top heavy, its not in place to create its own jobs, but help create an environment so business can complete both large & small. And for those called.Leakers they are somtimes Patriots..If you see a Traitor to your Country turn them in. Largest majority of traitors are Democrats.

          1. marshmil1789 says

            Amen tCot US.

          2. Thinkingman2025 says

            Of course, If I find someone willfully breaking the law, I will gather evidence to present to management. I am not sure how reducing Gov’t employment will work out. What I have seen is that the demands are such that agency managers hire contractors to do the jobs they don’t have the budget to support, but are mandated to do. Contract employees are now ~ 50% of the workforce. Total Federal employment has been ~2 million forever, but all the employment growth has been in the contractors.

          3. niknar says

            That’s right! Contractors have been taking over, even very sensitive jobs.

            I know some people who worked for the EPA for a long time, but officially for a contractor, & were tossed from one contractor to another several times. Their pay’s pretty low, & their vacation minimal, & they lose it when they’re tossed to a different contractor. They got out of there when they could, one transferring to a state job, & another early retirement. The positions aren’t very secure, either. Jobs get cut at the whims of politicians.

          4. richard king says

            Try presenting the evidence against Lois Lerner to the IRS Commissioner.

          Thank you 2025. My father retired as a meteorologist. (Unfortunately we don’t dare say “weatherman” like folks used to say in the ’40s and ’50s. I am a retired fed. employee. I was about the only Republican on board. One liberal co-worker bragged about federal employment as “they can’t fire you”. Over time a high percent of fed. employees are in it for job security–NOT “CUSTOMER SERVICE”. The workplace is now a daily “fashion show” where the younger women employees show off their new clothes, hairdo’s, fingernails and face makeup. Try to call their offices for assistance—they are “on the other line or out of my office, please call back later.”. WHAT ARE THEY DOING FOR THEIR PAYCHECKS?

            Gonzales that’s what I get when I call Office of Personnel Management. Also, I’ve emailed them seven times in the past 17 months requesting information. All I get is a return email that says something like: “Your inquiry has been forwarded to the appropriate department. Please allow xxxx days for us to respond.” After 17 months I’m still waiting for replies to seven inquiries–all about the same inquiry. Are we living in a resurrection of the former Soviet Union?

          5. richard king says

            Worse, but Trump is working on it. He needs more guys with brooms, though, and the corrupt senate won’t approve them. Get the good ol’ boy McConnell out of there.

          6. whoselineisitanyway says

            I remember Krushev on TV in the 50s, plainly stating
            “WE WILL BURY YOU FROM WITHIN.”
            Appears to be working.

          7. marshmil1789 says

            I remember that too. The USA has been infiltrated by socialists/communists over the past several decades who have been observing how the typical American mind works and what it is concerned with. Such things as what time does a certain TV program come on? What’s the latest on ball game scores? Catching a sale at the mall. Keeping up with the Jones’s. Not much attention has been paid to what the kids are learning at school, the “three R,s”. Many Americans are easily fooled by political hoodwinkery as proved by the Presidential elections of November 2008 and 2012. As a result we now have a malignancy of “deep state” tumors that we are obligated to take out asap before the cancer destroys our unalienable Rights: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness endowed by our Creator.

            We (privately) call those “EEO” employees, and it seems every office has them. I am also near to retirement.

          10. marshmil1789 says

            Thinkingman enjoy your retirement but be forewarned the OPM is another bureaucratic boondoggle. ~~~Creating jobs is not a Constitutional function of the US Government. Ha! But somebody came up with that EEO idea. The federal government has more dead wood piled around than a private corporation would tolerate in a millisecond. I am supporting Donald Trump in any and all efforts to rid the government payroll of fake jobs. And get rid of the Department of Education and the IRS. Let the states handle their own education systems. Totally revamp the system for revenue to get rid of the IRS. A federal sales tax for example will make everyone pay taxes and eliminate gimmicks where hiding income will be difficult. Provision can be incorporated to assist very low income persons.

          11. JeromefromLayton says

            EEO started sometime in the 1960s to implement the Civil Rights Acts. Like anything else in government, it goes into “mission creep” as grows like a cancer. See C. Northrop Parkinson for comments on this stuff: Parkinson’s Law.

            Those paying under the table will have to pay the tax on the money as gross income so we will get more into the government

          14. marshmil1789 says

            “Under the table” means hidden so it does not show up as income therefore is not reported. But when the receiver of the hidden money buys something she/he pays sales tax.
            If you don’t want to pay taxes then never purchase things.

          15. JeromefromLayton says

            They started setting us up for that in the Air Force back in 1973 when they sent out a self-identification form with 24 categories in which they parsed out Asians, South Asians, Africa, Latin America, and so on. But, “whites” were all lumped together in one line near the bottom of the sheet. So, someone from the Azores, Sicily, or Lapland would all be coded the same while being from Korea or Japan or China made a difference to them. So, I checked the “X” box for other since they didn’t have “Human” as a category.

          16. marshmil1789 says

            Lets get rid of the government pensions like they did with our 401 retirement plans a few years back and now the employers don’t have to have one for us.

          19. Thinkingman2025 says

            So you think everyone should work without pensions? Try attracting anyone to study 6-12 yrs post HS for an advanced degree in science with that kind of logic. Government does not mandate than an employer provide a pension, that has always been a perk for the job to attract employees.

          20. jaybird says

            A lot of them do not dress for the job, my daughter worked for Fed. Gov. (wore business suits) and when she went on vacation she told them no flip flops, sandal’s or jeans filling in for her while she was away and she reported an older (black)r women for falsifying her time sheet and at 20 yrs old had to talk to her about it, her boss told her she had to handle it. She found most were lazy career people and were not reported for any abuse or work ethic.

            Where I worked you wasted your time filing a complaint against people who were not the same color as you. Those you complained about could raise hell literally and nothing was done about it. But the slightest prejudiced complaint about one of “us” was investigated thoroughly. Where I grew up it was labeled morality. Right was right and wrong was wrong–we didn’t twist things to make each change to the other. Today “victimology” is a popular enterprise–for low lifes.

          24. evangelinebrabant says

            The feds, and the state governments do not worry about lazy, inefficient employees. they keep them on, and continue hire new ones .

            The Federal Government has 22 million employees. Add that to the state governments, and their many-times lazy millions of employees, and contemplate why we are so inefficient on so many levels, and why our taxes are so high.

            Where did you dredge that canard from? There are about 2 million Feds, and an equal number of contractors in the Federal Government.

          26. Bonita Beach Babe says

            Hope she fired her.

          27. jaybird says

            She was an Adm. Asst. to the big boss. She thought that it was his position to file a complaint with the Union or whoever, this was not in her pay grade. She had only been out of high school 1 1/2 yrs and it was her 1st full time job. When she took the government test, her scores were high and 4 or 5 agencies offered her a job. She was a lamb working with people that ignored policy & I had taught her differently. When she got out of high school I took her shopping for business suits and proper dress.

            You cannot fire a government worker, the appeals go thru the Union and there are many. Some Departments are so big that in one agency a worker had been absent for a month and no one noticed so therefore he was not reported. You need to watch some of the hearings by the Senate and Congress when they question some of these department Supervisors.

          You are describing the way it OUGHT to be, not the way it is.

          Given what has gone since the 2016 election,most people understand that the left is actively working, all the time, to destroy Trump so they can get on with their 100 year goal of destroying capitalistic America, and turning it into a workers’ paradise, with the same ideology that killed 230 million in the 20th century.

          It is what the Left does.

          The trouble is, neither those laws nor many others are being enforced by the DOJ. Under the eight years of Obama, the DOJ was co=opted and corrupted, and with a weak AG and a conflicted Deputy AG it is still not functional. Rosenstein, the deputy AG forced the conflicted Mueller on us, and these people appear to be dedicated to bringing down the President of the United States. No investigation of Clinton crimes, no grand juries, proetction of a corrupt former FBI Director, no investigation of a corrupt AH, Lynch, no investigation of unmasking by high previous government officials, it stinks.

          1. Thinkingman2025 says

      4. marshmil1789 says

        Amen tCotUS. This nation now has a faction of anti-traditional America that wants to change as much as possible toward a socialistic/communistic agenda. That faction’s main ingredient is anti-God so you can bet it is supersaturated with atheists. They absolutely hate the concept “under God”. The USA was not founded by atheists. The “Founders” left it open about one’s choice to believe or not believe that a “God” exists. But today’s atheists are working overtime coming up with arguments contrary to Faith matters. The US has a visible enemy, Islam, as well as an internal enemy–Darkness. (…now watch the lame brains accuse me of racism for using a word that means evil.)

        1. SD of AZ says

          No way, you are labeling the Death Cult. Go right ahead. More than half this country agrees with you.

          1. marshmil1789 says

            Thank you SD. I believe you are correct. We just need to “infect” the other half with sense and sensibility based on tried and proved methods traditionally held that have proved to lead to and buttress a great nation that has held for 228 years and has turned out to be the most powerful and the most prosperous that is also sharing its wealth with others who respect human basic rights. (Whew! …that was a long one.)

        2. a fool says

          Evil never wants to face Truth! It fears its own IMAGE! Thus, they all cheat and hide, lie and kill, trying hard to get rid of themselves! They all hate that Self within, thus, they can not stand what is GOOD! What is Good Makes them angry, jealous and full of SHAME… no place to run, therefor, they cause Hardships to others! Each and everyone of them is a Prideful Selfish Beast!’ The fruit of that is Self Destruction and destruction to all those around them! Look at all the Disasters their Selfishnesses have caused the Nation!

          1. marshmil1789 says

            I cannot add anything here except to endorse the statement. When people of evil intent are brought into the presence of good they see themselves for what they are by comparison. Therefore to make themselves feel good they have to denigrate the good. *The pot calling the kettle “black”.* We have a faction today of low-lifes who are trying every gimmick they can think of to bring down this great nation. They are the non-contributing crowd who are nobodies. To be recognized they stir up riots, destroy monuments, statues, buildings, businesses, break windows and set fires to name a few of their immoral activities. Now by one selfish hate-filled individual drawing a very high paycheck one of the nation’s most beloved past times is tarnished. And when one of their kind demonstrated respect for our national anthem he was denigrated by the others on his team. So we see one football player who brought the wrath of the nation upon himself and his team while another stood up for the ideals of his country. We have seen both evil and good. Now let’s see where it all goes from here. Football you now have a mess on your hands. What are you going to do about it? The nation and the world are waiting.

            here is how they are tearing this country apart and they have got to be stopped taking our guns away is the only thing they have not accomplished but it is coming people are too stupid to see this
            Beware the Useful Idiots
            submitted by Garret Geer
            Recall that Hillary did her college thesis on his writings and Obama writes about him in his books.
            Saul Alinsky died about 43 years ago, but his writings influenced those in political control of our nation today.
            Died: June 12, 1972, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA

            Education: University of Chicago
            Spouse: Irene Alinsky
            Books: Rules for Radicals, Reveille for Radicals
            Anyone out there think that this stuff isn’t happening today in the U.S.?
            All eight rules are currently in play.
            How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:
            There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.
            1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.
            2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible; poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
            3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
            4) Gun Control– Remove the ability to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state.
            5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
            6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.
            7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the government and schools.
            8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent, and it will be easier to take (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.
            Does any of this sound like what is happening to the United States?
            Alinsky merely simplified Vladimir Lenin’s original scheme for world conquest by communism, under Russian rule. Stalin described his converts as “Useful Idiots.”
            The Useful Idiots have destroyed every nation in which they have seized power and control. It is presently happening at an alarming rate in the U.S.
            “It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.”

          5. marshmil1789 says

            Thanks Jan. I’ve recently pulled masks off atheists and when they are found for what they are their heads explode with expletives you won’t believe. They accuse us of telling lies–they only wish we actually were. They take the truth and substitute names of conservatives into where progressives’ names were originally placed. Liberals live in a land of fantasy and that land has proved over and over again to not function–Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea for examples. Some people never learn because you cannot fix stupid!

          6. Jan says

            that is why if at all possible your guns should not registered, I got mine from indivuals, 30-06, 40 caliber Clock and a 10gauge shot gun, anyone comes in my door uninvited I have them, I really believe we are on the verge of a civil war in this country

          7. marshmil1789 says

            Correct Jan. The Constitution nowhere requires guns to be registered. “…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” [ In today’s English it might be written “..the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be limited, undermined or encroached upon.” So who are these nuts who want us to register our guns and WHY do they want us to do so? Registering guns will not keep them out of the hands of criminals–the historical record proves that. Dianne Feinstein should retire and stop coming up with
            stupid requirements of We the People when we already have a Constitution that outlines our governments responsibilities, its limitations and our rights.

          8. billdeserthills says

            Easy to see the answer to gun registration, merely look at the Brits & Aussies–
            The reason, of course there are many reasons why gun grabbers want to ban Our Freedom, but to my thinking the Brits & Aussies didn’t have the mass migration of ‘refugees’ they have now, until their gun ownership rights ended

            Hard to take over a well-armed country, all those ‘refugees’ might get hurt

          9. marshmil1789 says

            Thank you billdeserthills. They learned too late. There are some factions you just cannot be “nice” to. It appears the Aussies and Britts have learned the hard way. Maybe the same for France and Germany. Liberals have minds that were wired with reverse polarity. That is why they think 180 degrees off the rational, common sense logic. Just notice.

          10. Phyllis Rasmussen says

            I like reverse polarity fits well

          11. marshmil1789 says

            Yes Phyllis it fits those whose thinking comes across as “backward” when compared with common sense logic.
            I heard, “His mind was wired with reverse poliarity.”several years ago when describing someone’s strange thought patterns. Nowadays, it fits those who support liberalism and Islam. Both run against that which has been tried and proved successful and to work for the best for the most people. But then, some people never learn. Their prejudices blind them.

        I have a better idea-they may be political appointees that “cannot be fired” because of the “political UNION” that they belong to, but they can be “reassigned” to different jobs. As in, 3rd world countries, with little or no cellular service, filing printed out paperwork in filing cabinets, with a one hour per week limit of “online service” for the internet, at a severe pay reduction(to save us taxpayers some money). Let us just see how long they will last.

      8. pappy450 says

        Agreed…NOW we need to find out those “names” print them up, and put them out on the internet for ALL to see. The way the ‘net is today, It wouldn’t take long

    2. LIVE FREE OR DIE says

      I don’t know why Trump just didn’t fire every one of them from day one, and I think he should still do just that.

      We should demand Trump reveal the owners of the Fed. I’d love to know just how much it pays in income taxes…..hehehehe………..ZERO?? Anyone doubt that? Does anyone think there has ever been an IRS return that says ” Federal Reserve Bank of NY” or other branch?

      The income tax started in this country only a year or two after the Fed was created, and it has grown to a level of near slavery.

      1. Pam says

        I think I read and article that the reason Obama borrowed them in it makes them career employees and very hard to fire. Kind of like teachers with tenure. Only the government can come up with positions that are bullet proof.

        1. LIVE FREE OR DIE says

          Then re-assign them to traffic duty in the Mohave. Isn’t that a federal park or something?

          1. Pam says

            Haha, I could get behind that idea. #MAGA!

      2. Retired says

        If Trump could fire them without backfire from the media and the political supporters [ mainly Democrats] he would be doing it . The fed is controlled by the IMF/IMG and World Central Bank . Yellen meets with them before she makes any announcements . The Stock market and the Fed shows how long the OWO/NWO has been trying to control .

        1. LIVE FREE OR DIE says

          The Federal Reserve is a PRIVATE BANK (as are the other central banks in Europe and Japan the ownership of which should be disclosed by Trump in addition to just how much this private company pays in taxes. As far as the media and political reaction to firing the Obammunists….Who’d care. Let ’em riot…better reason to finally take them out.

          1. Retired says

            The federal Reserve and Central Banks as well as World Bank are controlled by the Leaders of the IMF/IMG . Yellen does not make a move or speech without getting together with them . Greenspan and his follower was the same thing .

          2. LIVE FREE OR DIE says

            and they are intellectually inbred – almost all central bankers are schooled at either MIT or the London School of Economics.

          1. Retired says

            It is probably the same one I read . Trump met with a potential replacement and supposedly he will make the announcement this coming week .

          2. Jesusprotectus says

            Thank you, she needs to go.

          3. Retired says

            Yellen is part of the IMF/IMG and World Central Bank click that is also part of the Bilderberg Society .Look up the Bilderberg meeting group that was in Va. this year ,it lists some of the attendants .

          2. Retired says

            Just go back to the hearings that Clinton was questioned about her activities as SS and the destruction of computers as well as cell phones . Democrats can do that but not republicans ,no double standard is there ???

          3. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Ok but what parts are highly classified?

      Martha Stewart was put in prison for much less. You’re so use to the corrupt Clintons you don’t even notice. #LockHerUp

        Your email scandal did its work.. you have Trump!
        Now they whole damn group has private email servers…. get them the hellouta office..

      2. Robert Dostoevsky says

        What shady uranium deal. You’ve varied your posting on this before.

        1. mac12sam12 says

          You really don’t know what I mean? Russia donated $146 million to the Clinton foundation, they give Bubba double his normal speaking fee and now Russia owns 20% of US uranium. It was illegal for her to have a foundation while being SoS. haven’t varied my posting.

          1. Robert Dostoevsky says

            I’ve looked everyplace I could think of but could not find anywhere where it states that it was illegal for Clinton to have a foundation while she was Sec. Of State.

          2. mac12sam12 says

            Trump couldn’t have one a no one that holds a high political office can have one because it could lead to bribery. (see Russian deal)

          3. Robert Dostoevsky says

            I’m really disappointed, you usually respond with something that might be factual but not this time. There is no law preventing the Sec. Of State from having a charitable foundation.

          4. LastnameFirst says

            You are hopeless. Brain dead lefturd.

          5. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Welcome to the discussion…Oh wait, you’re not joining the discussion, you’re just name calling.

          6. LastnameFirst says

            Did you look into them selling access to the government to foreign nations. No, that would wreck your fairy tale.

          7. Robert Dostoevsky says

            No, did you?

    4. LastnameFirst says

      Let’s compare the amount of classified information that was exposed. No contest at all.

  4. Jr1776 says

    WTF ! why is that scumbag still working at the IRS ?

  5. Jeffrey Cahoon says

    Find out who they are, and shoot them!

    1. DennisBechtel says

      shooting them would be easy enough ,but getting away with it is another thing.

  6. Les Prangley says

    Drain the swamp and get rid if these parasites before they drain the lifeblood from the Trump administration.

  7. lha says

    One thing that must change is the protection of Federal employees against being fired like everyone else can be.

    1. pineapple says

      AMEN!!

  8. DonRS says

    What in the HELL are Trump’s Cabinet appointees doing to DRAIN their Agency’s SWAMP RATS! Rex Tillerson talks gravely but seems to be doing NOTHING of any consequence at the WORST anti-American SWAMP of all, the State Department.

    Jeff Sessions, is the head of the most POWERFUL, MOST EGREGIOUS SWAMP, the Justice Department. His department is the parking ground for worst of Obama/Holder/Lynch’s EVIL henchmen! WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING? Only after Trump had to kick his ASS, publicly, has he taken the most basic of steps – made a few speeches, but WHO HAS BEEN FIRED?

    Elaine Chao has done WHAT at the Dept. of Transportation (actually the Department of Speading the Spoils of Government. Have there been in Obama appointees removed from her department?

    Alexander Acosta, Sec. of Labor – has anyone heard of any reduction in the number of SWAMP RATS at the Dept. of Labor (actually the Dept. of Avoiding Labor – the Union arm in government!).

    Ben Carson, that very nice man, has accomplished exactly WHAT? HUD is just another huge bureaucracy ripe for drastic reduction! Its primary result has been to increase the numbers of citizens living lives of dependency!

    Tom Price, former Sec. of Health and Human Services, is gone for far more lack of accomplishment than just STUPIDLY using government aircraft for personal travel! The good doctor, a former member of Congress, an outspoken critic of ObamaCare in the 7 years he was in Congress, was totally unprepared for getting rational legislation to our “do-nothing” Congress!

    James “Mad Dog” Mattis, as a General, seems to have learned NOTHING about the penalties for INSUBORDINATION during his period in the military. Possibly, because he was high in the chain of command and only concerned himself with insubordination of those lower in the ranks than himself! Same goes for the Joint Chiefs of Staff – the first group of Obama suck-ups that should have been fired! Collectively, this group of BOZOS are convinced the military is one giant organization whose purpose is Social Engineering and Experimentation, not COMBAT READINESS and WINNING WARS!

    H.R. McMaster, National Security Chief, apparently slept through the classes on INSUBORDINATION when he was coming up through the ranks, or, as a General, felt himself to be exempt from the rules about him being insubordinate. If EVER there was a function of government that was TOTALLY our of CONTROL, operating in UNCONSTITUTIONAL WAYS, DAILY, it is our “Intelligence Community”! With a FISA court that is equally out of control, they are a disgrace to the Constitution, the rule of law and the American way.

    Certainly, there are more Cabinet Agencies worthy of similar criticism, but the picture of a CORRUPT Federal Government could not be more EVIDENT!

    1. Sgt. York says

      Closet liberal Sessions is a true wimp. He should be run out and sent back to Alabama as a disgrace to their state. They will handle him the Bama way.

      1. Retired says

        Let me ask , how can Sessions do much with so many of Clintons and Obamas people still in positions that should be removed ??? Congress is to busy play hate and games because Hillary lost instead of going through the list of Trump’s appointments . Congress is to blame more than Trump , they are stalling for the 2018 election and it is going to bite back at them in both parties .

        1. Sgt. York says

          Jeff was an ok person for the AG with all of us here in Alabama UNTILL he recused himself and that shot him and how we here feel. He might reclaim his standing but I doubt it.

          1. Retired says

            There is a big difference from State level to WDC . But you did not answer to the fact that there are so many hold overs from Bill Clinton through Obama . Congress will not allow them to be replaced and so far the media has tried and succeeded in destroying people that Trump works with . The media has a lot of people working world wide to destroy Trump so his only outlet on frustration is his dumb tweets . No one want’s to give Trump or his picks a chance to do anything including Congress .

    2. Robert Dostoevsky says

      Who are we left with after your purge?

      1. DonRS says

        So, your view, bad breath is better than no breath? We had 8 years of horrible breath, let’s not continue it. Of the MILLIONS in the bureaucracy, we can certainly get along without a few (or a lot) of them!

        1. Robert Dostoevsky says

          Yeah, any breath is better than none. I am a little puzzled about your insubordination comments about Mattis and McMaster.

          1. DonRS says

            No, “breath” that does severe harm to America is NOT better than “no breath”. Our country and we Americans would have been far better off had Republicans selected appropriate Presidential Candidates, rather than the “bad breath” of McCain and Romney! But, had they have won, I would agree, in that case their “bad breath” would have been far better than Obama’s horrible anti-American presidency. So, I guess it depends on how bad the “breath” is!

            Regarding the insubordination of Mattis and McMaster, you must not have been paying attention to their words, repeatedly, in direct conflict with Trumps. Tillerson has done the same. A number of the members of the Joint Chiefs has, likewise, done the same, specifically regarding transgenders in the military. If one is having sustained medical problems, they are ineligible to serve in the military. Transgenders, who demand transformational surgery and its subsequent sustained medical attention, should certainly fall into that category.

            A bit off topic, but, for Obama, our military serves as little more than an organization for social experimentation and cannon fodder (outrageous rules of engagement). You may recall, Obama attempted to limit the medical care for wounded soldiers, as they volunteered, so no medical care resulting for wounds suffered in wartime was not due them! But transgender surgery and medical care, well, that’s due them!

          2. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Insubordination has a specific meaning and I don’t think you’ve proven that. I think Here Trump would get rid of anyone who was actually insubordinate.

          3. DonRS says

            Since you were unaware of the comments, how can you possibly determine they weren’t being insubordinate?

          4. Robert Dostoevsky says

            ?????

          5. DonRS says

            Really? Try to stay current on what’s going on, if you chose to correct those that do!

          6. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Never tried to correct you, just pointed out that insubordination has a specific meaning. Who refused to obey a direct order from the president?

          7. DonRS says

            If you paid attention, you would know. Each of the identified members of the Trump administration have “corrected” Trump’s stated positions. It is not appropriate for them to do so, publicly. They have the responsibility communicate those disagreements directly, if their views are not supported by their superior, their options are: 1) change direction and support their superior’s position, or 2) RESIGN!

            Insubordination in government has a different Meaning than in the military, but the options are the same!

          8. Robert Dostoevsky says

            I was going to stop our discussion until I read your last sentence. Insubordination is the same in business, government or the military; however, the consequences can be quite different.
            Nine of the former generals disobeyed or failed to follow a Trump order.

          9. DonRS says

            I presume you meant “none” not “nine”. If you claim “none”, you are wrong. The leaders of several branches of the services said they would NOT enforce Trump’s change to transgenders being allowed to join the military!

            Indeed, both the determination of what insubordination is, and the consequences vary, significantly between military, government and business!

            President Trump defined the change in POLICY. The Generals do NOT get to determine the policy, they implement it!

          10. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Whoops, you’re right I meant none. I’ll stick with none but we disagree with what the generals did or said. Rather than argue this point I think we should just agree that we both have a different opinion and leave it at that.

          11. DonRS says

            Fair enough.

          12. LastnameFirst says

            Wow, close call. You almost had to state an actual fact.

    3. LastnameFirst says

      The DOJ needs hit first, so the “intelligence Community can be properly cleaned. The corruption is almost self-sustaining. Something like a run-away reactor.

  9. AKLady says

    “According to the report, which was obtained by The Washington Times this week, these appointees included seven who failed to obtain permission for the job switch from the Office of Personnel Management.”
    .
    Permission from OPM? LOL, talk about Tom Foolery. Appointees remain in their positions until they are replaced or resign. There are Bush II appointees still in office,

    1. Retired says

      Get the facts right , there are people from Bill Clinton and Obama there as well . Your Muslim King is still out there creating problems . Clinton and Bush were at the Bilderberg Meeting the year before getting elected , Hillary was supposed to appear also but chose to go campaigning instead . Obama was chosen through the UN and OWO/NWO .

  10. MIKE6080 says

    get rid of all of them now , if theyre barrys boys they are trouble.

  11. Joseph R. Davis says

    Oh, Dear G-d, more bull-s**t from LeeRoy and Daisy Mae, about individuals who made the transition from appointees to career government employees. But…these people are the reason that Donald Trump screws up practically everything he does. Yeah, and if pigs had wings, they’d be pigeons.

    1. LastnameFirst says

      Protecting the trash pile doesn’t help any of us.

  12. Joseph R. Davis says

    Yes, LeeRoy and Daisy Mae. It’s all the fault of hold-overs from Obama, from Clinton, from Roosevelt, from Abraham Lincoln, from Andy Jackson, and so on, ad nauseam. It’s NEVER the fault of President S**t-Bird.

  13. henrikovratd says

    Government is a dirty world that is being openly exploited, however still nothing gets done, this is bigger then the mafia could have ever gotten.
    The sad part is it’s open and everyone knows this and seemingly nothing anyone can do.
    If the president of the USA is having such a hard time that says it all!!

  14. Joseph R. Davis says

    It is interesting to note that Trump didn’t drain the swamp. He merely brought in his own alligators.

  15. Barbara Johnson says

    It is past time to get rid of even more of these political appointees they only want to go on and take money from the tax payers year after year and try and destroy Trump in the process.

  16. SILENTHAMMER says

    Do you really think Donald Trump expected this to be EASY? Did we elect a LOSER? Has he had even a YEAR as president? Is Congress — for the majority, at least — SUPPORTING him? Are liberal Democrats honest and forthright? Of course, the multiple answer is….NO. Even the best Rat Terrier needs some time to root-out the rats that have been setting up shop in the house for YEARS! Even DECADES! Give him time. Support him! Have you seen his record on getting things DONE? It’s GREAT! Pray for This Nation. Pray for President Trump! And STOP WHINING!

    1. Robert Dostoevsky says

      Just what has been done that is so great?

  17. CUZIN ERN says

    Fix the NO Profit Racket called sports owner feeding themselves to owners money by the millions plus! etc
    Next stop the players from running the front office where the owners cringe from the meat heads!

  18. Gregory Sarmas Sr. says

    The President has not been able to fulfill his positions in the Gov let alone worry over rogue employees .Where does one start?Either with the political chessboard or covert leakers?

  19. Eddie says

    This is the reality of American politics and how the state can be flipped from a democracy to a socialistic format by using key people in certain positions to thwart or cause discourse for the new administration. #44 was / is a master manipulator that was able to deceive millions with his fake agenda fronting as a cure all for society. He’s been propped up on a pedestal by the Mid Eastern oil tycoons and used to destroy the last remaining deterrent (USA) to their Globalist agenda of a one world government and religion.

  20. Donald Lindsey says

    Remove the traitors ASAP one way or the other and restore America to the people not to illegals, radical muslims, traitors and terrorists of the New World Order of Liberal Socialistic Morons of the Democratic Party that wants America on her knees before foreign countries

  21. Richard Gedachian says

    tar and feather the s.o.b.s.

  22. Joseph R. Davis says

    More right-wing bull-s**t. Burrowing! As if it’s illegal for an individual to seek to move from an appointed position, to a career position in the US Government.

  23. Joseph R. Davis says

    Here’s a flash for you, LeeRoy. Trump is destroying HIMSELF. And…by G-d…he’s doing a great job.

  24. DennisBechtel says

    get rid of the deep state obama appointees ,everyone of these idiots must go and without their pensions.

  25. Thor Brevik says

    GET THE RATS THE HELL OUT!

  26. Mike W says

    The only reason this would be is because – Barry – whoever the hell he really is – is still spying.

  27. Sharon Coulter says

    Set up US agencies in various foreign countries (without staffing) and give each of the 71 the choice of transfer or quit.

  28. Luis Luna says

    President Trump should just hold rallies and let the public know who he suspects who’s leaking information and read the names out better yet plaster their faces

    1. LastnameFirst says

      The President needs to have others do it. He is taking WAY too much flak for being his own spokesperson. He needs actual, real helpers.

  29. Liesel says

    Get them out now before the cause real damage.

  30. Robert Kahlcke says

    Fire the bastards forthwith or put them in a desk in the basement under guard.

  31. Ron says

    The swamp MUST be drained now…these deep state creatures are doing terrible damage to POTUS’s agenda and consequently to our nation itself!.

    1. Joseph R. Davis says

      Or WHAT? President S**t-Bird will shoot himself in the foot AGAIN?

      1. LastnameFirst says

        What exactly have YOU done for your country. I suspect it is a negative value.

  32. Joseph R. Davis says

    Well…LeeRoy and Daisy Mae are in full hue-and-cry over former political appointees who chose to take permanent jobs with the US Government. And these are the people that President S**t-Bird is blaming for his own short-comings and monumental f**k-ups?

  33. RG ODOM says

    i think trump’s son in law is a big problem in keeping good people he drives the good ones away as he wants to be “The Boss”…and keep ones that should go as they bow down to Jarad. watch what i say he will be the down fall of trump due to his know it all attitude and vanity.
    he is certainly no assistance in draining the swamp when he personally drags into the white house George Soros

  34. JeromefromLayton says

    Nothing new. I remember my History teacher telling us about that process back in the 1950s with FDR appointees going to high level GS- positions.

  35. Nellie McConnell says

    Trump SHOULD fire every person appointed by Obama. He wasn’t legally our President. He choose to appoint Muslims WHO DON’T WANT our Constitution and LAWS. GO TRUMP

    1. Robert Dostoevsky says

      Why wasn’t Obama legally our president?

      1. LastnameFirst says

        Liberal ploy. Jump in with BS questions. You need to find another country. When we clean house, you are done.

        1. Robert Dostoevsky says

          The lady made a statement and I questioned it. Go back and read her statement and perhaps you can understand my question.
          I’m wondering whose house you’re cleaning? Since I’m a registered Republican will I be purged from the party?

  36. Walter Flatt says

    ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS DO THE BELOW AND LISTEN TO ALL AND IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT MY PARTY PLANNED AND IS STILL PLANNING, GO TO A DOCTOR. PASS A LAW TO DISCONTINUE SUCH AS THIS AND FIRE THE 78 BEFORE THE RUIN THIS COUNTRY.

    GOOGLE THE 6 THINGS BELOW, YOU MIGHT LEARN SOMETHING.

    MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD TERROR GROUPS IN THE USA. WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED?

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, PASSED IN 1952, NEEDS ENFORCING NOW.

    THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015, IS THIS WHY THEY WANT OPER BORDER?

    FEMA CAMPS IN THE USA, WHY SO MANY? ARE THEY LOADED WITH MUSLIMS?

    THOMAS JEFFERSON, SEE WHY HE FORMED THE MARINES.

    BLACK JACK PERSHING, SEE HOW HE STOPPE A MUSLIM UPRISING.

    WE ARE IN WORLD WAR 3 TODAY, NOT BY OUR CHOICE BUT THEIRS.

    1. Robert Dostoevsky says

      Walter when are you going to quit posting about the 1952 law which you know was superseded?

      1. LastnameFirst says

        He states it needs enforcing. What is so hard to understand about that?

        1. Robert Dostoevsky says

          There is nothing to enforce, the law was superseded by the 1965 Immigration Act! You should understand the facts before jumping into the discussion.

  37. Jesusprotectus says

    President Trump please FIRE all of the traitor’s people! Drain the swamp! Anyone associated with that traitor needs walking papers!

  38. Cheryl Heberle says

    That’s where the leaks pro…….can any of the agencies be found unnecessary and can be eliminated…..
    Where are our freedoms that don’t hurt someone’s feelings….pretty hard not to offend someone!!!

  39. downs1 says

    It would be wise to investigate each and every one of these people and discipline them appropriately, since their job is obviously not to support the President but to undermine him wherever possible!

  40. Al says

    ID them and publish a list of their names and jobs. Put electronic safeguards on all of their correspondence. If necessary isolate them in their new jobs (Similar to the bad teachers who we can’t fire because of union rules) by putting them in monotonous jobs until they quit. If this policy is so awful then we need to treat it that way. I would never trust any holdover of any party put into a job this way.

  41. Firewagon says

    President Trump need only review that “play in the park.” It definitely is all about the “inside players.” “Et Tu, Brute?”

  42. susmart3 says

    Like Trump is loyal to even the ones *he hired.*

  43. BH says

    Is it time for the President to put all of these people under surveillance? Maybe we could find out who is leaking all of the fake news.

  44. Dolores Adams says

    How can we get rid of these criminals?

  45. A-Jay says

    Unfortunately, it appears that President Trump has not followed the path of most Democrats who have a list of readily available appointees upon once being elected so the new administration can promptly cleans house.

    1. Retired says

      Wrong ,McConnell is sitting on a list of appointees that is over 100 long . Some claim that he thinks there are not enough votes to get them appointed .

  46. Larry Brule says

    DIG THEM OUT AND FIRE THEM!

    1. Retired says

      If it only would be that easy , the media would have a hay day with that and make it world wide news like everything else he does .

      1. LastnameFirst says

        We need to fire them too.

  47. Martin says

    Get these low life Un-Americans out of government.

  48. cubuff62 says

    Simple solution. They have civil service protection. Transfer them to Adak, Fairbanks, Tonapah, NV, Brownsville, TX, etc.

    1. Retired says

      Gitmo, serving time would be better seeing they like their brother Muslims more than the USA .

  49. armyisnumber1 says

    Trump should of made make-believe jobs for these traitors and that way they would have no access to the White House or any of it’s dealings.

  50. John says

    The Deep State, Democrat Liberals, the MSM, Liberal Academia, Hollywood Celebs, and the Soros-Funded hate groups won’t rest until America becomes a socialist or fascist republic similar to Venezuela or any of the countries in the EU. 1st and 2nd Amendments will be out, Christians will be persecuted and arrested, The Flag as we know it will be changed and so will the National Anthem or abolished, marriage will be abolished, sexual freedoms such as allowed in the Netherlands, no more drug and alcohol age limits, no border security nor vetting and America will be part or controlled by the EU. Modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah & Babylon and Roman Coliseum as the ancient times, revival of the Inquisition, hate groups similar to the Hitler Youth and the Red Guard will be the new Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, etc…………….

  51. Sue Geagley says

    Do Democrats do anything for their constituents or do they just obstruct.

  52. Phyllis Schultz says

    Those are the people that need to be brought to light and fired. Send all of Obama’s leftovers out of DC.

  53. Michael Heagney says

    Publicize their names so that they can be openly find counter resistance and scrutiny. Each will eventually get caught committing a crime.

  54. Lew Williams says

    name names

  55. Bill Meeker says

    If current law protects these positions, Congress needs to pass an “anti-burrowing” law to allow deleting the positions or firing the folks as was done for the VA.

    1. LastnameFirst says

      Or like Regan did with the air traffic controllers.

  56. Bob Russo says

    I am petrified what will be left of this country for my grandchildren to enjoy, love and defend after I am gone. Can we just stop this party bullshit which is causing lies and separation and has a lying press. Find out if its the Truth before you print it, you owe your readers that much.

    Robert G. Russo

    1. nocbsfan says

      The news media know the truth, but they will not report anything to help the President

  57. will says

    We have to find a way to punish Traitor bin Obama

  58. chuckie2u says

    Bet they are all Socialist tainted. Just maybe the Nazis vision of Socialism really won in the Socialist agenda to control the money.

  59. Brad Fisher says

    Hopefully, the president will twig on to this situation before it’s too late. He needs to get rid of them and pronto!!!

  60. Peggy says

    Easy to fix. Just issue a notice that if you were appointed by Obama, you’re fired! No exceptions!

  61. Charles Wolfe jr says

    I just sent an email to Trump with that information, whether he gets the email remains to be seen but I did all I could do.

  62. DouglasDauntless says

    That’s because the congress took money from the Unions and they let the Unions take over the Government employees. That’s why you can’t get rid of Obama’s people. Government employees don’t need a Union, it’s another payback by the Congressmen who took their money.

  63. John Newman says

    Trump needs to expose these snakes and assign each one to a corner room with no windows, phones, and give them busy work to keep occupied…… Similar to the rubber room, where they send civil service workers that are under investigation.

    1. Retired says

      GITMO for some water treatment as to why they hate the USA .

  64. John Newman says

    The inside fix. That’s exactly why Hillary was so smug when she stated she wasn’t going to be prosecuted. She had Comey and Lynch in her back pocket.

  65. Dave Fischer says

    When talking about draining the swamp….this may be it…getting rid of assholes and scumbags who are doing everything to tear down our president and twist everything he does or says to make it look like he is to blame….they may be the real enemies and I do hope they drain, or get rid of these alleged deep undercover slobs as soon as possible……….

  66. Gary Von Neida says

    We must remember that evil, like rust, does not sleep. Stay alert to any potential danger these plants may be able to do—watch Them closely. One might have been the Secret Service Lady (?) that came right out and said She would not “take a bullet” for Our President; not sure.

  67. Gerri says

    Well this is another indication that President Trump (and I voted for him)has failed to keep his promise to D R A I N T H E S W A M P!!!!! In fact his campaigning for STRANGE tells me he is actually doing the opposite. On the other hand he gets rid of BANNON who ,if in politics, would be exactly the type he should REPLACE the swamp creatures with. Get with the program Mr Trump or you will be exactly the type of President you campaigned against!!!

    1. Don Lindsey says

      You sure turned Rino in a hurry!

  68. James Higginbotham says

    Trump NEEDS TO FIRE ALL OF THEM AND OTHERS PERIOD.

  69. Raymond Quintrro says

    Get rid of all 78 of those Omamania’s

  70. roboteq says

    What would be even nicer is if we could get all American citizens who work in government positions to work together even if they do have differing opinions. That is the way it is supposed to be, not this government official against that government official. Divided we fall. We need to stand together and we need government workers especially to stand together. Anything less is a failure to the system we the people are paying for.

    1. LastnameFirst says

      The people that need firing are NOT redeemable. They are damaged and beyond reform.

  71. Francis Kahler says

    It is obnoxious that WE, the people, have permitted the OBUMASITES, and the DUMOCRATIC TRAITORS to let this occur!! PLEASE help TRUMP drain the swamp, as it is obvious true Americans have been silent way Too long!

  72. curiousmoon says

    The whole situation is absolutely deplorable . The behavior of the liberal media is horrifying, “what goes around comes around” so the liberals should be careful. Most Americans like Trump and believe in policies. As far as the way he speaks, I trust him more then the establishment. He is for our country and our country first. I cannot understand why this is a problem for the left and the media. It is the way a President should act and believe in.

  73. Don't Tread on Me says

    Send them to Puerto Rico on “special assignments” to help distribute supplies. Should be enough accountability with that sort of job to flush them out.

  74. Herb1949 says

    I said that the day Trump was elected. He will NEVER be able to change the culture of the swamp, and drain it, unless he cleans out the trash covering the drain.

  75. Alleged-Comment says

    Of course they are burrowed in. I always wondered where they are. The sodomite had 8 years to SCREW this country the back door way.

    You might say he gave the government anal cancer.

  76. jovette57 says

    GET RID OF THE “ROTTEN SCUM OBAMA LOVERS” BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY! THEY ARE ALL “SHIT DISTURBERS” like peloosie, schooomer, susan rice, valerie jarret and the rest of the “hidden scum” that is INFECTING OUR GOVERNMENT!!

  77. cathylovesyou says

    Some very very old news. The Democratic Party is the Communist Party of America. Every outrageous lie and event is from the Communist agenda. The more liberal a person the deeper their minds reek of Communism. Like Crazy Lizzy, Crazy Nancy and instigator and strategist Chuckie. The people who follow them are giving away their country and their freedom and will be first to get dumped on by these traitors. Some don’t mention Antifa or associate themselves with it, because of the vote.

  78. skizzy009 says

    Start by publishing names and showing photographs on the “Net”, in local newspapers, on Billboards and any other media available. They have to come out of their “Rat Hole” some time.

  79. Tiger says

    You dig them out, you spotlight them and you find away to take them out. ASAP.

  80. Frederic Charles Hilnbrand says

    Well if we know there are 78 of them we should know there names and get rid of them. WE the PEOPLE will take care of them if nobody else will. We WANT to help TRUMP so he can do MORE for us and our country. At the same time take Obummers citizenship from him and send him back to the land of Muslims. I don’t think he was ever a LEGAL citizen in the first place.

  81. Lawyer says

    “this could help to explain why that might be” – or it could be that there is a sociopathic, narcissistic personalty serving as president – who lied about his true agenda and has tried to undermine health care to pay for tax cuts for the rich, who has not cleaned up the swamped but added to it, who has undermined the clean air act, the clean water act, is trying to reduce and minimize national monuments, and now what to raise middle class taxes to pay for taxes for the rich – Good luck

  82. ggrdr05 says

    we need the names of the 78 obamanites and what departments they are in so we can pressure their dismissal for treasonous actions

  83. Darius the Mede says

    Every single one of those 71 remaining, Obama loving and supporting clowns, need to be terminated for cause RIGHT NOW. Why in the world would anyone think that the President should continue to employ people fully dedicated to bringing about the collapse of everything he stood for. To me, that’s just as stupid as asking a chicken thief to stand and watch your chicken house.

  84. Michael Dennewitz says

    I’ve said it all long – there are far too many mooseslimes hidden within our govmt. Why does anyone think the little velcro headed faggot halfbreed has his little palace just a stone’s throw from the white house? He’s planning a comeback and every damned one of those so-called “refugees ” are to be his personal army. Beware America!!!😣

  85. rick meek says

    Well – like alabama ticks – YA DIG THEM OUT……

  86. DevelDoc1 says

    Get rid of all obama appointees and many if not most of the problems go away

  87. wayne g dearry says

    What a battle but Pres. Trump should CLEAN house because if you don’t it could be almost impossible for him to run the Govt.

  88. ernldo says

    They need to be eradicated, by any means necessary. The leftists do it to us all the time….

  89. rfrichey says

    Seek these burrowers out and let them sit at an empty desk all day doing nothing. Do not allow them a phone of any kind or any other type of communications or nothing to read or write on. Make them sit at their station with nothing to look at but a empty desktop. If they have nothing then they can’t leak anything. Put some trustworthy people alongside them to start sabotaging them with enough to fire them. Make it so hard on them that they will get up from their empty desk and run.

  90. stoth says

    Sessions should have already given Trump a list of each one. With Shumer and the other sheep delaying Trump appointments, it would create a far more perilous road if Trump fired them.
    Thrump already knows who they are and as time comes he will get rid of them.
    Rosenstein should be dismissed (Trump appointed him – a mistake) because he is a Demo Mole, after all he appointed the special prosecutor knowing full well that he is a good buddy of Comey.

  91. Nina Ferguson says

    Simple, fire them if they fail lie detector test. They can be asked if they are leaking information or are obstructing the administrations policies. Depending on their answers, then they can either be fired or prosecuted. Makes sense to me.

  92. J. Anthony Vittal says

    You’re worried about 71 people “intentionally sabotaging the will of the people??” As a Brit might say, “not bloody likely!” Moreover, what about the fact the Administration is routinely sabotaging the will of the people by taking positions contrary, if not diametrically opposed, to the will of the majority of our population. The “will of the people” is not the sentiment expressed by “the base,” or Breitbart, or Fox News, or Bannon, but that expressed by ALL of the people.

  93. El Dee Bee says

    Yes, draining the swamp is a monumental task and an uphill battle all the way. Hopefully by some miracle Trump can pull it off – to some degree at least. These entrenched bureaucrats are out to get him and continue our decline into just another Socialist-Communist dictatorship. Time for some Divine Intervention.

  94. Allyssa says

    There are a lot more liberal Progressives in the bureaucracy than just these 71 successful “burrowers”. There are some still in the dark corridors of the government who were hired when Carter was President and even though they may be reaching retirement age, they are now in the upper reaches of their agencies. Thus they are in positions where they can successfully leak information in such a way that it damages the President’s agenda. Since the Civil Service Act only allows for their firing if they commit certain felonies or become mentally incompetent, they can remain in their positions for as long as they wish. Retirement or death are really the only limits on their tenure. If Liberalism were to become a declared mental disorder, then they could be removed. I really don’t see any other solution.

  95. 2399molly says

    They need a list of every appointee that Obama made and than start cleaning house.

    1. dfinch says

      On these career employees you still have to have grounds to fire them.

      1. 2399molly says

        Getting rid of these nonessential departments would work and the President could do that. That would eliminate a few thousand and make our government leaner.

  96. Joseph R. Davis says

    As usual, LeeRoy and Daisy Mae show an abysmal ignorance of the working of the US government. So appointees went from serving at the President’s pleasure, to being Civil Service employees. BFD. But look on the bright side; Trump can blame them when he screws up again…and again…and again.

  97. jimdarnall says

    We all know this is true. This includes President Trump as one who knows. I believe in all of his business wisdom that he is quietly and stealthy dealing with this danger. Certainly no one believes Trump is stupid and that he doesn’t realize the danger within the government. From every angle he is being targeted for removal but I hope as we all should hope that he makes it through all if this horrible mess.

  98. ernldo says

    They should have all been fired (or disappeared) on Trump day one. Also, we are more deeply infested with leftist slime than these 78….I give as evidence ALL academia..(K through college)…ALL media (with very few exceptions) Hollyweird, judiciary….etc. If the Republic is to be saved, it will NOT be a bloodless task….

  99. Glenn E Moody says

    we the people need a good old fashion trader firing squad march them out line them up & shoot them dead this would be the only way to truly stop this kind of treason against our country or the President elected by we the people. and give them a choice of life in jail or death by firing squad the only way to get the life sentence would be to turn in everyone involved and testify against them.

  100. Phyllis Rasmussen says

    I’ve heard that McCain has received $$ from Soros. Have you?

  101. Elizabeth Sprowes says

    It doesn’t mater if they are in a career position they can still be fired. Get your people in all of the divisions & get all of Obamas Czars OUT of every division. They did not take there oath on the BIBLE they tuck it on the CORAN that is illegal. I also herd that when Obama messed up on his oath he also tuck it on the CORAN, Some one needs to find out if that is true.

  102. Ernest Pearson says

    They should be removed from office, period!

  103. disqus_htVNWSBEmM says

    The Obama appointees should be given the choice of resigning or take a polygraph test for their loyalty and whether they have sabotaged the current administration.
