    The establishment in Washington, DC, is preparing to resist and thwart reforms to the federal bureaucracy proposed by a potential second Trump administration. Trump plans to purge the administrative state by firing career bureaucrats from the DOJ and the FBI if he wins reelection, nine people involved in the effort told Reuters in May. Trump has repeatedly vowed to drain the administrative state, or “deep state” as he termed it, upon returning to office. The term “administrative state” specifically describes the phenomenon of unaccountable and unelected administrative agencies, including the national security apparatus, exercising power to create and enforce their...

    With the proliferation of bureaucrats in leftist-run California, they're descending like locusts onto the farms of not just California's lower Central Valley, but now the Napa Valley and its wine makers, according to the U.K. Daily Mail. The farmers are swatting back. The Daily Mail reports:Napa Valley's prestigious wineries have launched a revolt against 'abusive' county officials, accusing bureaucrats of killing the region's famous vineyards with absurd and excessive red tape.Wealthy vintners say they are being 'crushed' by 'gross regulatory overreach', which has included penalizing wineries for planting trees, making jam and conducting wine tastings on their own land.One vineyard...
  • "Covid" Didn't Destroy Businesses and Lives; The Government Did

    Time to Change Our Language.. It is time to stop blaming “Covid” for breaking the economy, destroying businesses and livelihoods, and wreaking untold havoc upon families. It was not “Covid” that did this. It was not even the Chinese. It was our government. The government has conditioned us to blame the impersonal “Covid” for the destruction it wrought upon our businesses and families. We need to change the discussion by using the proper language to fix the blame where it belongs. Good generals can win a battle by picking the terrain upon which they fight. At Waterloo, Wellington forced Napoleon...
  • Adams plans to give NYC bureaucrats $2.1B raise as he pushes program cuts over migrant crisis

    Mayor Eric Adams might be crying poverty over the Big Apple’s migrant crisis, but that didn’t stop him from quietly pushing through a giant $2.1 billion raise package for 10,000 bureaucrats. The salary increases, which Adams approved in February without putting out a press release, will retroactively boost salaries by 16.2% for managers and other non-union employees when compounded annually over a five-year period dating back to 2021.
  • Biden Admin Installs New Rule Making It Harder to Fire Bureaucrats

    A new rule adopted by the Office of Personnel Management boosts protections for government employees, making it harder to fire them. The Biden administration has issued a new rule that makes it harder to fire government employees in an apparent bid to thwart former President Donald Trump’s pledge to fire “rogue bureaucrats” and radically reshape the federal workforce. The new rule, which bolsters job protections for career civil servants, was issued on April 4 by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which hinted in a statement that it’s targeting a promised move by a potential second Trump presidency to...

    The Spectator ^ | 04/05/2024 | Matthew Foldi
    The Biden administration is bracing for a second Trump term by rolling out a rule that would complicate Donald Trump’s pledge to fire tens of thousands of federal workers if he wins in November. The new rule is also a huge gift to the public-sector unions that Joe Biden needs firmly in his corner.The latest edict, issued by the US Office of Personnel Management, is an almost direct response to Trump’s stated plans to purge the bureaucracy. That’s not how the OPM is framing it, of course; instead, OPM deputy director Rob Shriver said it “is about making sure the...

    "You can't fight City Hall," we used to say, assuming we were living in a movie from the 1930s. Kidding aside, the old expression was for venting frustration at the odds of a lone citizen going up against bureaucrats who care more about filling out the proper forms than serving their communities. But what happens when City Hall goes up against Wall Street? Or in today's case, when Communist Chinese control freaks displease the millions of investors who participate in global stock markets? It's game over, man — game over! Feng Shixin isn't a name I'd ever heard before today,...

    Federal government workers from the State Department to NASA are circulating open letters demanding that President Joe Biden pursue a cease-fire in Israel's war against Hamas. Congressional staffers are picking up microphones in front of the Capitol, speaking out to condemn what they say is the silence of lawmakers about the toll on Palestinian civilians.

    As president, I will restore American strength on the world stage and focus our attention and resources on deterring Xi’s Chinese Communist Party — the greatest economic and security threat facing America today. My goal is straightforward: We win, and they lose. My treasury and commerce secretaries will focus on American interests, not Wall Street’s access to Chinese markets. I will create an Office of Economic Security and Competition to prioritize reshoring and friendshoring critical production, protecting technologies and reducing reliance on adversaries. I will defend American workers and innovators from illicit technology transfer and intellectual-property theft. I will align...

    National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir on Friday afternoon said he had instructed the Commissioner of Israel Police and senior officials in the Jerusalem District to prepare for "Operation Defensive Shield 2 in eastern Jerusalem" starting on Sunday. "The purpose of the operation is to fight and root out terrorism, to reach the terrorists' homes and to stop terrorism before it comes to carry out attacks," said a statement issued by Ben Gvir’s office. The statement, which was published just before the start of Shabbat in Israel, followed the deadly terrorist attack in the Ramot neighborhood of Jerusalem, in which...

    The completion of the Fern Hollow Bridge construction in under a year and at a cost of $25 million is truly a feat that should be applauded by one and all. But it also points out the utter failure of our government to function on an expeditious and cost-conscious manner daily (“Editorial: Fern Hollow failure,” Jan. 29). Tom Wolf declared at the bridge opening ceremony, “This is the power of government that works for the people.” “Under normal circumstances this bridge would have taken 5 years to complete,” said Kate Thomson of the United States Department of Transportation. “This is...

    During an interview aired on Thursday’s broadcast of CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) stated that over the next two years, he wants to make sure that the Inflation Reduction Act is implemented properly and he is concerned that whatever government agency is in charge of the tax incentives in the legislation is “going to interpret it differently than what the intent was.” Co-host Joe Kernen asked, “In the next two years, do we should do another series of bills, now you said this — the IRA’s paid for. But do you think we should do a lot in...

    A report issued last year by the watchdog group Open The Books, “The Militarization of The U.S. Executive Agencies,” found that more than 200,000 federal bureaucrats now have been granted the authority to carry guns and make arrests – more than the 186,000 Americans serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. “One hundred three executive agencies outside of the Department of Defense spent $2.7 billion on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment between fiscal years 2006 and 2019 (inflation adjusted),” notes the report. “Nearly $1 billion ($944.9 million) was spent between fiscal years 2015 and 2019 alone.”

    When Congress authorized $80 billion this year to beef up Internal Revenue Service enforcement and staffing, Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy invoked the language of war to warn that “Democrats’ new army of 87,000 IRS agents will be coming for you.” A video quickly went viral racking up millions of views, purporting to show a bunch of clumsy bureaucrats receiving firearms training, prompting alarm that the IRS would be engaged in military-style raids of ordinary taxpayers. The GOP claims were widely attacked as exaggerations – since the video, though from the IRS, didn’t show official agent training – but...

    We cannot believe this has happened. We sent business correspondence to our local U.S. Social Security Administration office two weeks ago by certified mail, return receipt requested. The documents were received by the Office, as we received the green Cert Mail card in return verifying same. Included in the envelope we had sent to SSA was an official SSA form whose instructions were to return the form to the local SSA office. Along with the SSA form was a detailed cover letter, and documentation SSA requested confirming legal status. Ten days later, we received an envelope in the mail from...

    The world over and through eons of time the principles of communism must always fail and capitalism must always prevail. The danger comes when the most successful societies attract the attention of the communists. The central issue at play in both systems, communism and capitalism, and the cause of failure or success, is innovation. Communists are communists, because they’re administrators, mid-level managers who recognize the need to use threats and force to obtain results. If they begin as communists, they are attracted to these positions where there is no requirement of specific talents or abilities other than the willingness to...

    This week, California child care licensing investigators made a surprise raid on three Aspen Leaf Preschools in the San Diego area. During a routine visit in December state health inspectors discovered that most of the students were not wearing masks. During the surprise raid teams of investigators terrorized the youngsters for hours alleging that their teachers were trying to make them sick by not making them wear masks. Parents were furious when they learned of the raid from their frightened children later on the day of the raid. "The school was very open about its decision not to require the...
