Skip to comments.Obama Trashes Whistle Blower Protection for Federal Employees
Posted on 03/01/2013 6:06:47 PM PST by paltz
President Barack Obama issued a one-page memorandum on January 25, five days after the inauguration. The memo told the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to establish new mandates that would allow federal agencies to terminate employment of staffers without appeal if their work can be deemed as 'national security sensitive.'
Thousands of federal positions would be negatively affected by the rule if it were to go into effect. The rule would encompass any jobs involving public safety or law enforcement duties. Anyone who works for an office that has an inspector general and individual who is a member of the federal law enforcement officers association would be affected by the proposed rule.
Whistle Blower Advocacy groups like the Washington D.C. based Government Accountability Project (GAP) say that that the Obama administration, who has prosecuted more federal employees under the World War I era espionage act for leaking information to the press, could use this rule to further intimidate federal workers from stepping forward with claims of misconduct in the government.

i believe that the cia reports to the dni.
threatening (among others) the benghazi survivors from talking??
Translation: Obama trashes protection of those who might tell the truth about him or the concept of Socialism.
LOVE the information on your contact page!
Thank ye kindly, ma’am.
Thereby shutting off any further leakage on the likes of, oh, say, "Operation Fast & Furious".
Sieg Heil! Sieg Heil!! Sieg Heil!!!
F#$ing TRAITORS~! ALL OF THEM
It sounds to me that this is intended to go well beyond just whistle blowing. The One might want to purge those that are not loyal to him and only him. This paves the way for a quick and easy transition to his personal Schutzstaffeln (SS). This makes it easy to install his own people in every position of “national security.”
Just the Communist version of the transparency he promised. Down is up, wrong is right, transparent is ......
It is transparent. Those whose mind is clouded with Liberal Mind Fog can tell that he's up to no good, and those whose mind is clouded wouldn't see anything bad he did even if wisleblowers came forward. How much more transparent could he be?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Seems to be a part of a larger pattern...
Things just get worse by the day...
Amazing how av news bragged about him in 2009
“As an Illinois senator, Obama was responsible for passing legislation to protect government employees who come forward and risk their jobs to expose waste, corruption and national security lapses. And during his 2008 election campaign, Obama promised to protect whistleblowers, saying their “acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled.””
Will they eat their words and blow the whistle ?
The new motto: If you see something, don’t say something.
P.S. Yes. Worse and worse!
