Trump Declares War on the Professional Civil Service


Reclassification of Civil Service Posts Will Compromise Public Health Threats  

Health Editor’s Note: With this executive order, Trump has declared war on the professional civil service, by giving himself the authority to fill the government with his friends and anyone else who will work for him, not the American people.  

Trump signed an executive order which creates a new classification of ‘policy making’ federal employees which would take large numbers of the federal workforce and remove their civil service protections. The executive order would undo what the Pendleton Act (1883) and civil service laws tried to accomplish, ‘which was to create a career civil service with expertise, that is both accountable to elected officials but also a repository of expertise in government.’ If this executive order is allowed to stand anyone involved in policymaking can be sent into a new classification and once there they are subject to political review and dismissal for any reason. Like giving the truth about something, that makes Trump look bad. 

American Federation of Government Employees National President Everett Kelley is quoted as saying this executive order is ‘the most profound undermining of the civil system system in our lifetime.’ 

From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic Trump has denigrated all things scientific and medical as America and the world has  struggled to understand what this novel coronavirus does, how it is spread, who it harms the most, etc. Trump has repeatedly tried to control the CDC, NIH, and FDA and bully them into not doing their jobs and saying and doing what he thinks would politically benefit him.

Through Trump’s lack of leadership, crazy clown show mentality, inability to care about what this pandemic is doing to America and the rest of the world, his need to continue politicking to make another four years of hell in the White House as we continue to suffer increased cases of COVID-19 and along with those cases, deaths. Public disagreement with Trump will cost people their jobs.  There appears to be no end to Trump’s madness and leadership vacuum. Changing leadership during this pandemic is pure madness!….Carol

  1. The CDC, NIH, FDA, etc….are all filled with Big Pharma, Big Agra, Big Tech Food(GMO), their top possitions. These agencies policies and recommendations are wrecking this country and the world for that matter for the benefit of a few.

    • metalflyer11, Well, here you are again. If you think the CDC, NIH, FDA are filled with incompetents at the top…which is not true, wait until Trump starts giving his cronies jobs in those positions. Perhaps his sons, daughter, son in law will be given positions. Not one of them has an inkling of what science and medicine does.We can really hope that Trump is gone from the ‘White House on November 3rd. The mere thought of replacing those who are trying to make medical and scientific decisions to save lives at this time would be disastrous….but then again, would Trump even know? Daily he is directly responsible for the deaths of many Americans and all he can think about is politicking, rallies (which bring people together so COVID-19 is more easily spread, and at one of his latest rally debacles, he tried to kill them off with hypothermia. Trump knew the deadliness of coronavirus from the get go (Woodward’s interview) and yet he did nothing to stop it. Trump is a monster. Cast your aspersions at him and leave everyone else alone.

  2. #DrainTheSwamp was another Freudian confession.

    Water is the cleanest part. Draining it only leaves sludge.

    Time to #DredgeTheCesspool!

    • Under Mango Mussolini,

      The US Attorney General was LITERALLY a… #HotTubTimeMachineSalesman!

      The TrumpU Salesman Prez appointed an IlluminatiMagicSalesman a Presidential Scholar…

    • … Still no answer to this question:

      Who paid off Brett Kavanaugh’s $92,000 country club fees plus his $200,000 credit card debt plus his $1.2 million mortgage, and purchased themselves a SCOTUS seat?
