    Anons, Tweeters, FReepers and others are still digging in the right place, and still willing to dig wherever Q points. This thread is a friendly collaborative place for FReepers to analyze information and share opinons. FReepers have a wide variety of reasons for investigating Q Anon content; this is not the appropriate place to criticize or badger those who choose to use some of their time in this manner. This thread is a continuation of the prior Q Anon thread located here: I plan to post one thread at a time and ping new drops posted to it....

    Government Executive ^ | 12-15-2015 | Charles S. Clark
    Okay this is from Dec. 15, 2015 but it sure is relevant. President Obama on Tuesday signed a long-awaited executive order on strengthening the Senior Executive Service that streamlines recruiting and hiring while raising the aggregate spending cap on executive performance awards from the current 4.8 percent cap to 7.5 percent.**snip**The impetus for the hike, the order said, is to “retain and reward more top performers” among SES and senior level/scientific or professional employees. “The heads of agencies with SES positions that supervise General Schedule employees will implement policies for initial pay setting and pay adjustments, as appropriate, for career...

    SNIP The Washington D. C. Deep State is a group of 8,156 appointed mangers in 75 federal agencies that control the executive bureaucracy and tell new political appointees what they can and cannot do. Yes, that’s right, the Deep State is an official government program, well-organized, comprehensive, and “in charge.” OUT OF THE 8,156 MEMBERS WHO MAKE UP THIS DEEP STATE OF ENSCONCED BUREAUCRATS, OVER 7,000 WERE APPOINTED BY OBAMA. These the are the “Obama Holdouts” that still control the executive branch of government a full year after Trump has come to office. Obama expanded the existing Flag_of_the_United_States_Senior_Executive_Service.svgprogram of Deep...
  • Stuffing the Bureaucracy at the 11th Hour

    Center for Immigration Studies ^ | January 5, 2017 | Dan Cadman
    On December 31, the Washington Post published: "Federal agencies rush to fill job openings before Trump takes office Jan. 20". this violates an agreement reached between the incoming and outgoing administrations on November 20. It also quotes anonymous sources as confirming that the outgoing administration agreed especially to halt last-minute Senior Executive Service (SES) appointments, but did not necessarily agree to provide a list to the incomers that would make it easier to spot violations of the agreement. SES appointments are the top of the federal bureaucracy's hierarchical pyramid. They come in two types: political appointments for those at the...
  • Presumptuous Sin

    "Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me!” (Psalms 19:13) If you as a believer know what you need to do to overcome lust but then do the opposite, you are acting in willful disobedience. This is presumptuous and arrogant sinning and it comes with a price. As David understood fully, by arrogantly and selfishly entering into sin, you are allowing sin to gain dominion over you. You become an “addict” to a life-dominating sin—a slave with no way out.
  • Tax the Rich!!!!! (OK, Raise Taxes on all the "Rich" GS and SES "Workers" Until Deficit is Zero.)

    NA ^ | 5 July 2011 | R A Cook
    So Obama demands that we must progressively "Tax the Rich" as a price for raising the debt limit. OK. Let's do that. Any civilian government employee making over $150,000.00 per year gets a 15% tax increase until the deficit is zero'ed. Any civilian making over $100,000.00 per year gets a 10% tax increase. Any civilian making over $75,000.00 per year gets a 5% tax increase. So how much would this raise? Does it really matter, Obama (and Hillary) have already said in 2008 that the fact that raising capital gains tax rates doesn't increase revenue "doesn't matter, it is a...

    A new survey shows strained relationships between senior career federal managers and executives and the political appointees they work with. In the survey, respondents rated Obama appointees lower than those in previous administrations. Obama appointees earned a C average, or 2.0, compared with a 2.3 for those in the George W. Bush and Clinton administrations. More than 30 percent gave Obama appointees a D or an F for overall job performance, while only 20 percent awarded past appointees such low marks. The study, conducted in April by Government Executive's research division, the Government Business Council, involved surveying 148 Senior Executive...

    Long Beach Press-Telegram ^ | 3/13/06 | Editorial
    Negotiations have been going on for nine months between Long Beach City Hall and the company that wants to build a controversial liquefied natural gas facility. But "negotiations" is an overstatement. Nothing has happened in the three months since the company, Sound Energy Solutions, made a specific proposal. SES offered $16.3 million up front and $12.6 in annual fees and taxes, plus $3 million in pipeline revenue in exchange for building the facility at the Port of Long Beach. The city offered no counterproposal, then last week abruptly threatened to end the talks for lack of progress, just four weeks...

    DAMASCUS, Syria — First of two parts A Syrian trading company with close ties to the ruling regime smuggled weapons and military hardware to Saddam Hussein between 2000 and 2003, helping Syria become the main channel for illicit arms transfers to Iraq despite a stringent U.N. embargo, documents recovered in Iraq show. The private company, called SES International Corp., is headed by a cousin of Syria's autocratic leader, Bashar Assad, and is controlled by other members of the president's Baath Party and Alawite clan. Syria's government assisted SES in importing at least one shipment destined for Iraq's military, the Iraqi...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Lower-income African American children are less likely to aspire to better-paying and higher-status jobs, which many view as held mainly by white workers, according to a new study that looks at children's perceptions of race and occupations. Middle-class black children also associated higher status jobs with white people but were more likely to want those jobs, said the study, to be published in the May issue of Developmental Psychology. "Socioecononic status makes a difference," said Pennsylvania State University professor Lynn Liben, one of the study's authors. The study examined 92 black first- and sixth-graders from a racially...
