Conservative talk show host Mark Levin is fond of saying that when liberals win elections, they run the country, and when they lose elections, they also run the country. That's because liberals control much of the media, the judiciary, and especially the bureaucracy, regardless of who wins the election.
Bureaucrats in the federal government, unhappy with the results of the election, feel they should be the ones to decide how America is run, and they are plotting their resistance to President Trump.
At the Environmental Protection Agency, a group of scientists strategized this past week about how to slow-walk President Trump's environmental orders without being fired.
President Trump is going to have the EPA enforce fewer regulations. How do you slow-walk less enforcement? It sounds like liberal-speak for directly disobeying orders of the chief executive.
At the Treasury Department, civil servants are quietly gathering information about whistle-blower protections as they polish their résumés.
I think whistleblowing is a euphemism for leaking government information. This entire episode is in liberal-speak and requires subtitles, like a foreign film. As for the traitorous civil servants, instead of polishing their résumés, they should be packing an emergency travel bag in case they need to abruptly head to the Ecuadorian embassy for an extended stay.

I think it is time for Trump to take the trash out.
That’s it. And he will.
And he will do it in a way where the ####iNg courts can’t do a thing about it.
They can’t stop funds to departments from being slashed.
Which will cause firings.
That’s too bad.
If Ryan and McConnell had any kumquats, they’d defund The EPA
An easy way for the Trump Admin to find the jobs where people have nothing to do and just watch Porn all day
I’m a fed and this is embarrassing.
Any coworker of mine who cannot or will not support the current administration needs to seek employment elsewhere. I sucked it up for eight years supporting Obama, it’s time for a little reciprocation.
I'm thinking it's going to get much better with AG Sessions in charge of the legal aspect of things.
I agree. Think what it was like for conservatives under 0bama.
Fire the ones who are defiant. They should go work for Soros or the soon to be defunct Clinton foundation.
These idiot government “workers” are mainly mad that they might no longer be able to sit around watching porn between bouts of harassing Citizens. What a bunch of retrograde losers.
The courts can do anything they want. Hell they’ve ordered taxes raised in the past They will simply sit at their benches and order the depth funded.
There are no jobs for the 30% excess fed employees to move to: they’ll have to leave DC and the cities they work in. Move in with the parents, maybe.
They’ve been comfortable for far too long.
Slow-Walk = Lay Off
Union loop holes don’t always work.
Ryan and McConnell do have kumquats, that’s the problem. They were lacking the usual fruit of the loin real men possess.
These are the sorts that were being protected with the “outrage” over his wanting to know who was working on what in some of the agencies - they will be uncovered and dealt with, especially as the new heads are in place and giving the orders.
Working as designed.
The problem for the American Left: How to insulate their agenda from the democratic process.
The solutions: 1) a radical and activist judiciary that serves as a super legislature. It rubber stamps every advance in the leftist agenda and overrules every attempt to roll it back; and 2) a massive bureaucracy comprising thousands upon thousands of full time employees answerable to no one and almost impossible to fire. They can leak, refuse orders, etc.
We are seeing this work before our very eyes. The left has designed it such that the only way to get rid of it requires massive reform, i.e. splitting the Ninth Circuit, impeaching judges or wholesale getting rid of Federal Agencies. The problem is that those actions require the legislative process which is easily derailed. The very democratic process sought to be undermined protects the vehicle the left has adopted to make it irrelevant.
So? Fire ‘em!
