Washington Bureaucrats Are Quietly Working to Undermine Trumps Agenda

Across the government, career staffers are finding ways to continue old policies, sometimes just by renaming a project.

Snip
“The bureaucracy is generally resistant, no matter what the hell you’re trying to do,” Leon Panetta, who guided presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama through transitions, said in an interview. But when a president sets out to be as disruptive as Trump has, Panetta added, getting career staff to implement those policies “is gonna take a hell of a lot longer.”

long read with many example. I found it heartening.

2. Exactly the reason the criminal hitlerite trumpers want to leave so many posts unfilled,

one of the stated objectives during their fake campaign. The civil bureaucracy forms a checks and balances line of defense against cocksuckers like trump.

7. What really sucks is that many trumpies will remain after he is gone

So that when a democrat takes over in 2021, they will be in a position to slow or even sabotage the rebuilding of our federal institutions

11. It is important that a professional government exists.

No nation can be held hostage by a tyrant.
