Ryan Zinke plans overhaul because
Interior Department employees

Washington Examiner, by John Siciliano

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said Monday 30 percent of his agency´s employees are "not loyal" to him or President Trump and he is developing a plan to overhaul the department. "I got 30 percent of the crew that´s not loyal to the flag," Zinke said in remarks to the National Petroleum Council, a federal advisory panel. He compared his running of the agency to a pirate ship that seizes "a prized ship at sea and only the captain and the first mate row over" to complete the mission. He then went on to discuss a forthcoming "huge" plan to restructure the

A 30% reduction in force sounds about right for a group that has stifled our energy prospecting and production for many years.

Disloyal forces abound in our Federal workforce. Don´t have to look very hard to find them either!

One wonders how easy it will be for the partisan Interior warriors that get laid off to do damage in the private world. Unless, of course, they can get hired by the National Felon league.

Most of us that live in very rural areas that are pretty much dominated by Federal lands, are acutely aware of the reality that environmental extremists have fairly taken over the US Forest Service, the BLM, and the US Park service. They came out of the 60´s and 70´s college environment and over time have assumed most of the higher positions as regards policy in those Federal agencies. My best wishes to Ryan Zinke, but he has to deal with a major portion of what is referred to as "the Swamp". He´s going to cause one heck of an uproar as he replaces those that are working for their extreme agendas as opposed to simply caretaking Americas resources.

I doubt a reduction in force would get rid of the subversives--civil service rules would negate that.

The only overhaul that needs to be done is to wipe out the Interior Department.

Mandalay Bay shooting hero Jesus Campos was pressured into giving his only interview to Ellen DeGeneres because the giant company that owns the Las Vegas casino feared he would spill the beans about the shooting timeline if he was grilled by real journalists, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively. MGM is worried that families of the 58 people murdered as well as many of the 546 injured in the Mandalay Bay massacre will launch lawsuits potentially worth billions of dollars against the company, sources tell DailyMail.com.

The "Doctor of Democracy," Rush Limbaugh, had yet more fun at the Left´s expense in a segment Tuesday in which he walked through all of the ways "a lot of leftist things" are "imploding." Not only is Hollywood in a state of absolute chaos amid a flood of sexual harassment and assault allegations, noted Limbaugh, the former Paper of Record, the former First Lady, the formerly invulnerable NFL, and Obama´s destined-to-be-former signature piece of legislation, are all on the ropes.

Politicians exploit public ignorance. Few areas of public ignorance provide as many opportunities for political demagoguery as taxation. Today some politicians argue that the rich must pay their fair share and label the proposed changes in tax law as tax cuts for the rich. Let’s look at who pays what, with an eye toward attempting to answer this question: Are the rich paying their fair share? According to the latest IRS data, the payment of income taxes is as follows. The top 1 percent of income earners, those having an adjusted annual gross income of $480,930 or higher, pay about

US cities are offering Amazon at least as much as $7billion in tax breaks ahead of a Thursday deadline as they compete to house its second headquarters. The world´s largest online retailer has won promises from elected officials who are eager for the $5billion-plus investment and up to 50,000 jobs that will come with Amazon HQ2. New Jersey proposed $7billion in potential credits against state and city taxes if Amazon locates in Newark and sticks to hiring commitments, according to a Monday news release from the governor´s office.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is likely to personally save tens of thousands of dollars if he is able to defeat Republican efforts to eliminate state and local tax deductions. Schumer wrote off $58,000 in state and local taxes last year, according to his publicly available federal tax returns. The amount Schumer wrote off is roughly equivalent to the median household income of $59,039 in 2016. A report from the Tax Policy Center found that eliminating the deduction would save the federal government $1.3 trillion over 10 years, and would hit wealthy taxpayers the hardest. “Taxpayers with incomes over $100,000

Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) has done more than 150 television interviews on at least 100 different days since President Donald Trump took office, according to a Washington Free Beacon news analysis. As ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, Schiff has been frequently brought on to discuss the latest in the Russia investigation and allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Schiff often "can´t comment" on sensitive matters surrounding the probe, however. His most frequent interviewers have been MSNBC´s Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell and Chris Hayes; and CNN´s Wolf Blitzer and Jake Tapper. He´s also appeared

As Congress debates reforming the federal tax code for the first time in more than 30 years, the states continue to confirm what too many in Washington are denying: Taxes matter for economic growth. A new report released this week by the Tax Foundation – along with assessment of states´ fiscal health, economic performance, and population changes – confirm that states with lower taxes and reasonable levels of government spending have stronger economies and are more attractive for businesses and individuals. The State Business Tax Climate Index is an annual ranking of state tax systems and how well they are

On Thursday’s Morning Joe, after days of ignoring The Hill’s latest reporting confirming an extensive racketeering scheme organized by Russian government officials that appeared to directly benefit Bill and Hillary Clinton, the show finally decided to cover the story. However, instead of getting worked up about unethical or possibly illegal Clinton-Russian collusion, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, along with Democratic Senators Tim Kaine and Michael Bennet, attacked Trump for tweeting about the new revelations and accused him of undermining American democratic institutions.

It is now clear to anyone who filters through all the media chaff on condolence calls that the FBI and Department of Justice allowed a criminal conspiracy to proceed, endangering national security, but enriching the Clintons, and have been covering up the evidence. The two people responsible for targeting the Special Counsel on Trump and Russia are directly responsible for the cover-up. Yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing produced plenty of video clips of Al Franken badgering Jeff Sessions, making him look off-balance. That might comfort the sensibilities of Trump haters, but it is all a phony distraction. It is now

Illegal aliens who have received temporary amnesty from the Obama administration are reportedly working as interns and aides in local California government on immigration issues. Under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, nearly 800,000 illegal aliens have been allowed to remain in the U.S. and work legally. Last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on behalf of President Donald Trump that DACA would officially be ended in March 2018. A new report by the San Jose Mercury News reveals the extent to which DACA beneficiaries have been given opportunities ahead of Americans, with many working as aides and

Former President George W. Bush offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy. “Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Bush warned in remarks at the Bush Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York. By chance, Bush was standing in the same spot at the Time Warner Center where former President Barack Obama made a similar plea for democracy and American leadership in late September, shortly after President Donald Trump had finished a belligerent, isolationist speech to the United Nations

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says players should stand for the national anthem, speaking out amid the furor over some players´ protests before games. "We believe everyone should stand for the national anthem. That´s an important part of our policy," Goodell said in a press conference Wednesday in New York. But Goodell said he would not commit to making a rule stating players must stand for the anthem.

As National Football League owners and players’ union representatives meet in New York today and tomorrow to discuss the players’ recent demonstrations — the kneeling, linking arms or raising fists during the national anthem — they should know how the law views these protests. This will not only tell them what the league lawfully can do; it also will reveal something about American values. There has been some confusion about the law and the anthem protests. Because the First Amendment generally treats government and corporate power differently, allowing a business to impose on its workers what the government

Clinton Scandals: For well over a year now, the progressive left in the Democratic Party have tried hard to sell the idea that, a) Russia meddled in our election, and, b) that it was to the detriment of Hillary Clinton. After nearly a year and a half of investigating, neither appears true. What is true, and now documented, is that Hillary Clinton and her family foundation both benefited handsomely from Russian corruption. Citing federal officials and government documents, The Hill details the Russians´ nuclear-industry corruption here in the U.S., citing extensive evidence that "Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery,

George W. Bush hinted Thursday at his dissatisfaction with Donald Trump, complaining in a New York City speech that ´bullying and prejudice´ has become a caustic norm in American public life. At an event hosted by the George W.

Someone within the Obama administration’s intelligence apparatus made requests to unmask the identity of Americans named in intelligence reports on behalf of Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. That’s what Power told the House Intelligence Committee last week during a closed-door interview. South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy revealed in an interview on Fox News on Tuesday that Power was “emphatic” on the point that someone else in the Obama administration made the unmasking requests that have been attributed to her. Fox News recently reported that Power made approximately 260 unmasking requests — a rate of one per business day

Why would you ask something that dumb?” “My job as a United States senator — you mean I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement?” McCain said incredulously.

Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´.  Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume.

The much-publicized Tuesday meeting between NFL officials, team owners, NFLPA officials and several players lasted about three hours. While there was undoubtedly a lot discussed in that time, it sounds as though there has not been a resolution on a rule change to require that players stand for the national anthem before games. A statement released jointly by the NFL and NFLPA called it a “productive meeting,” and that there will be another session in the future: Today owners and players had a productive meeting focused on how we can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality
