BREAKING! Trump Just Put 3 Million Entitled Employees On Notice! HE’S DRAINING THE SWAMP!!!

The term “government employee” has become synonymous with lazy, subpar, bureaucratic nonsense, and a host of other unflattering adjectives.  If you are like me and deal with various federal, county, and state offices on a daily basis, it can be rather frustrating. While there are certainly good folks to be sure, it seems in some offices and entities that is just simply not the norm.

Now President Donald Trump is proposing to make some much-needed changes to the federal civilian workforce with his 2019 budget.  To those employees not measuring up or pulling their weight, this could spell doom for them.  The budget is set to be released on Monday and is purported to contain some of the biggest reforms to the government workforce in decades. President Trump’s efforts to wrangle the bureaucracy fulfill a key campaign promise of the businessman president, who pledged a hiring freeze to shrink the cost of government and reduce regulation.

Among the changes proposed:

  • Creation of a bonus pool to reward good employees.
  • An end to so-called “step increases,” pay hikes of 3% to 5% that 99.7% of federal workers get even if they are poor performers.
  • Changes to the overall pay package, with a focus on generous retirement benefits, that align federal pay to the private world.
  • Retraining of employees.
  • Redeploying workers where they are needed.

The White House is purposing to change how more than 1.5 million federal workers are paid with a merit-based system. The proposed system would emphasize performance-based raises instead of the current system that generally increases pay based on tenure. The proposal would slow tenure-based increases, generating $10 billion over 10 years for performance-based payments. Then the subject of benefits, now currently 47% higher than in the private workforce, according to a congressional report, will be trimmed back in line with the private sector.

Many are touting it as “the most ambitious proposal to overhaul the civil service in 40 years” as President Trump proposes what is the norm in many private sector companies.  Simply put, he is proposing to “hire the best and fire the worst.”

President Trump briefly alluded the proposal in his State of the Union address last weekwhen he stated – “Tonight, I call on Congress to empower every Cabinet Secretary with the authority to reward good workers and to remove federal employees who undermine the public trust or fail the American people.” 

President Trump is using the VA Accountability Act, which gave the Secretary of Veterans Affairs greater authority to fire and discipline workers, as a model for this newest proposal. The White House reports the VA Accountability Act resulted in the dismissal of 1,470 employees, the suspension of 443, demotions for 83 others last year.

Another portion of the upcoming proposal plans to reduce automatic pay increases and instead use that money for a performance bonus pool. Currently, federal employees get a review every one to three years. Employees whose performance is “fully successful” — as 99.7% are — get a within-grade “step” increase in addition to annual cost-of-living increases.

Reforms have been introduced in the past but opposition from the biggest workforce in the country often resist change, fighting any effort to be accountable to the very American people that pay their salaries.

Critics claim these bonus will be used to reward loyalists and lackeys and be used to discriminate against minorities and women. American Federation of Government Employees President J. David Cox claims President Trump is using this proposal as a means for “political revenge” stating – “While to some people those are code words, they’re very clear to us. Basically, it wipes out due process rights for employees. He seems to be interested in political revenge by firing people. The government is not a family business that you get to be in total control of.”

Proponents of the proposal say that is not the case and instead state the overall goal is to bring the 1950s-styled Civil Service into the digital age, introduce automation, reward “the best” with bonuses, make it easier to hire and fire and provide “flexibility” by moving employees where they are needed and even rehiring skilled retirees.

USA Today details just how difficult this proposal might be to carry out though as many have come before President Trump and failed to do the same –
“Since President Jimmy Carter signed the Civil Service Reform Act in 1978, every president has tried — to some degree or another — to promote greater efficiency in the federal workforce. 

And every president has largely failed, running up against an entrenched culture in the bureaucracy, opposition from labor unions and a fickle Congress, said Donald Devine, who was President Ronald Reagan’s civil service director. Reagan tried implementing Carter’s reform law but ran into resistance from Congress. 

Trump administration officials say Devine’s work has inspired their efforts, but they weren’t popular at the time: Newspapers gave Devine nicknames like “the Grinch,” “the Rasputin of reduction in force,” and “the terrible, swift sword of the civil service.” He served four years as director of the Office of Personnel Management but withdrew his re-nomination in 1985 amid congressional opposition.

“You get bogged down, the unions keep threatening you, they get Congress so upset,” Devine said. “All the presidents, after a while, give up and forget about it. Some of them make it worse, some of them do a little better.”

And while he credits Trump for taking on the issue with new enthusiasm, he said the real estate mogul and former reality television star will soon learn it’s harder to fire people in government.”

It seems President Trump has his work cut out for him and I wish him all success as this is an endeavor that is desperately needed for the betterment of the American people.

New Racist DNC Email Leaked…Democrats Are Rushing To Cover Up Everything It Said About ‘Whites’

Usually, when the requirements for your next job interview include the message ‘no whites need apply,’ you can probably assume the job is in the film industry…and that the job is playing a character who’s a minority. Usually. Unless you’re working at the Democratic National Committee.

In which case, it might just be that you’re being discriminated against.

We’re not joking. The DNC is currently looking for qualified staffers to fill certain job openings. But the ‘qualifications’ the DNC is looking for? Some of them have to do with the color of your skin…and if you’re white, you need not apply.

I guess there’s not enough diversity in Democrat tech jobs.

Fox News reports:

White men need not apply.

That’s the message from a Democratic National Committee data services manager, currently on the hunt to fill multiple vacancies in the tech department.

The political organization, which routinely makes grand statements about inclusion, recently sent an email to its employees. Though the DNC is looking for a “staff of diverse voices and life experiences,” it apparently doesn’t mean white men.

“I personally would prefer that you not forward to cisgender straight white males, as they are already in the majority.”

Impressive.

You’d think that, what with all the liberal scandals being exposed these days, people would realize that things that they email will eventually be exposed to the light of day. This has been a pattern for a ­long­_time_now.

Apparently, the DNC didn’t get the memo.

They were, however, very quick to distance themselves from the email. Which should tell you one thing – even senior leadership knew this was racist, and wrong.

“The email in question was not authorized by the DNC nor was it authorized by senior leadership,” spokesman Michael Tyler told Fox News.

“All hiring decisions at the DNC are made consistent with the DNC’s commitment to equal employment opportunity and hiring an inclusive and talented staff.”

This is the sound of backpedaling, folks.

It shouldn’t take a rocket scientist to confirm what conservatives have known for years – hiring anyone on the basis of anything other than their skills is essentially either racism or nepotism. Both are wrong. They’re wrong whether they’re used against white guy, a black guy, or a gay Muslim Pakistani.

The Democrats don’t even have a basic grasp of morality.

Rex Tillerson reassigns ‘hundreds’ of State Department employees to search for Hillary Clinton dirt

Rex Tillerson, President Garbage Fire’s largely inconsequential and oft-humiliated Secretary of State, is still struggling with unfilled positions and a president who continually undercuts his own diplomatic statements. He has, however, fully devoted himself to Trump’s only apparent use for a State Department: fishin’ for Hillary Clinton dirt.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s assignment of as many as several hundred State Department officials to quickly clear a huge backlog of public records requests is being met with deep skepticism by rank-and-file employees.Tillerson says his goal is transparency. But many State workers fear the real reason is political: expediting the public release of thousands of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s official emails.

This follows news that Trump has demanded a speedier release of any remaining emails from the previous secretary of state, an overtly political request being made by a sitting president to, if at all possible, further retaliate against his political opponent. Which is not normal.

But there’s another dynamic at work here as well: Tillerson’s demand that hundreds of State Department officials abandon their current duties to be retasked with sorting through public records requests is being seen by many of those officials as another attempt to punish and/or cull the diplomatic ranks.

The staffers also suspect the move — which will reassign many of them from far more substantive duties and has already sparked a union complaint — is meant to force many of them to resign out of frustration with what are essentially clerical positions. […]While many of the people assigned to open-records duty are lower-level staffers and interns, some have previously held prestigious posts, helping shape U.S. foreign policy and engaging in high-level diplomacy.

And under Trump, the U.S. won’t be needing any foreign policy or high-level diplomacy—so sorting through paperwork it is.
