To Save America, Abolish the Civil Service

Original Article

Posted By: Judy W., 1/30/2023 7:36:05 AM

Over the past few months, we've been considering the wholly negative history of the so-called "Progressive"-era constitutional amendments, none of which did anything to improve the nation but did much to undermine its founding principles. (Snip) It's not just the constitutional amendments that have contributed to the decline of the Republic, however: it's also the actions of an ever-burgeoning federal government, which has simultaneously abandoned its core fiscal, executive, judicial, and legislative responsibilities, and extended its intrusive reach into almost every facet of our existence via the creation of the regulatory agencies, which now essentially control every aspect of a citizen's public and private life.

That posted paragraph should be etched in stone. A bunch of unelected nobodies with the power to destroy a country and they're hard at work doing just that!

Members of the uniparty are running America as kings, barons, lords, dukes, earls, etc. Their family members get perks, the government agencies are used for them and against the people, and the government employees, who think they're safe working directly under the ruling class, dutifully take orders from them. They won't stop until either we make them or our enemies take over and control them. They've all but trashed this Republic's Constitution and turned US into a "democracy" that they now need to protect. We no longer give our lives to protect our country, they take our lives.

Bidet is giving the a raise of over 4% this year and a member of Congress is talking about an over 8% raise in 2024. Government workers do not provide any services that the private sector can't do more effeciently at lower cost. But the government cannot control us without their bureaucracy

I think this was written with a pretty wide brush. And I think, maybe people have the wrong idea about’Civil Service’. I worked for the U. S. Air Force as a civil servant for 30 years; in aircraft maintenance. All civil servants are not D. C. based desk jockeys sucking up tax payer money. We worked in the cold, in the heat and in the rain if necessary to keep war fighters supplied with armaments. I’m proud to have served in that capacity. FTA: A permanent bureaucracy enjoying the perks of "public service" in perpetuity that consistently votes for the Democrats? I say bulls**t! It was a rarity to come across a democrat voting liberal in the ‘working’ sector. And most NEVER had a use for the union.

#5...I remember before jfk unionized civil service and the workers did all you state you did then and more, before union rules put the end to some practices they thought were wrong and made kings out of the union bosses, insufferable arrogant untouchable kings. Other than some southern democrats all dems were on board with fdr and jfk gravy trains.

If there were a way to legally withhold our taxes in revolt, to force government to actually represent us, our 'voice' would be much more audible. Our votes have become muted.

The real problem is that as one political party, the Democrats, took over control of the Civil Service in DC having politically appointed and by becoming aligned politically with the Super Bureaucrats there who controlled the Executive Agencies; while at the same time the other political party, the wimpy Republicans, for the most part ignored the politicization of the Civil Service while vilifying the working members of the Civil Service who make the federal government go, thus driving a majority of them into the hands of the Democrats.

When I was a military guard at the Air Force Museum decades ago, we called the missiles on static display the "civilian missiles" because they dont work and you cant fire 'em. Civil service was where the lazy and incompetent go to put in their time and retire.

Now THIS is a great idea. The bureaucratic sh**show that is all of our agencies is nearly impossible to change due to the very, very bad idea of "Civil Service" which protects the criminal, the incompetent, the lazy, and the politically corrupt from any real retribution. This would be a wonderful idea.

To get rid of patronage Chester Arthur's (?) administration instituted the civil service to rout out corruption. It looks like the cure was worse than the disease. Bring back patronage.

When you talk with any member of the US Civil Service who has been employed therein for any length of time and who has been paying attention, they will tell you that usually only about half of any executive agency unit does all the work, while the other half is essentially “dead wood”. Guess which half is usually politically connected?

Enough with black history month 25 replies

On Wednesday, America will kick off another black history month. This year’s theme is black resistance. Among the 9 people featured in the official poster are Angela Davis and Malcolm X — not Martin Luther King or Clarence Thomas, men who made America better, but a pair of thugs. Davis is the communist who in August 1970 surreptitiously armed three murder defendants which led to a shootout with the police that left the judge and the three gunmen dead. Malcolm X was an ex-convict who once was the face of the Nation of Islam, a black supremacist church. When he left it, the church sent assassins who killed him.

The House of Representatives in the new 118th Congress is off to a good start. In adopting a set of innovative rules governing its parliamentary deliberations, the new House Republican majority has authorized the creation of a Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic with broad jurisdiction. After three years, and more than 1 million deaths in the U.S. associated with COVID-19, a comprehensive, sober, and detailed investigation into the federal government’s response is a necessary precondition for restoring Americans’ trust in federal public health agencies. Specifically, that includes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, the Food and Drug Administration, and

Commies have always been after the wealth of America. It is their plum, their Holy Grail, their much-lusted-after crowning achievement. From the ruined universities of Europe, they flooded to the New World after WW2, determined to get some of her lovely money. Communists are always money hungry, starved in fact, ravenous for cash, but they never figure out how it is created. So they steal it by insinuating themselves into the bureaucracy and public sector unions, there to shake down the culture, no matter what. They don’t give a damn about the people they putatively serve. Citizens are meatsuits to be exploited for benefits and raises.

Watching a Project Veritas undercover sting operation invariably leaves me with mixed feelings. On the one hand, I’m struck with admiration for yet another one of James O’Keefe’s bold strokes against the corrupt empire that now dominates our world. On the other hand, I’m shocked by the disclosure that the Empire is staffed by such moral and intellectual lightweights. Though incredible, it appears that the subject of O’Keefe’s latest sting, Jordon Walker, really is a Pfizer Director of Research & Development Strategic Operations. Here he is giddily talking about deliberately mutating SARS-CoV-2 by means of “directed evolution” in order to keep Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine gravy train going.

I am a West Virginian. I am not now nor have I ever been a supporter of Joe Manchin. Over the decades, I did not vote for him for secretary of state, governor or senator. But I must salute his unapologetic abuse of campaign finance laws. He is living large on other people’s money. He owns a yacht and a Maserati, and racked up $1 million in fine-dining bills as he lives the lifestyle of the rich and famous — and he just may run for president next year. That’s where the big money is. Just ask Democrat Martin O'Malley. (Snip) Presidential elections are now a multi-billion-dollar industry.

Trump or DeSantis? It doesn't matter. Phantom voters will decide 2024. The phantoms are not voting for either. Those working deep in swing state voter rolls can tell you with 100% certainty that unless Trump or DeSantis wins with a 5%-to-18% margin in swing states, they will lose every one. Let's do some electioneering math. To win the presidency, about a dozen swing states matter — we all know who they are. Some will add Georgia, Virginia, and Arizona, some not. President Trump won in 2016 because he caught the leftists off guard. Perhaps even Trump was surprised on Election Night — the surprise was so complete!

I’m confident I know the answer without asking, because I’ve been in a comparable position. Harris suggests it with his view that Weinstein was right but isn’t right, because he was right when it was wrong to be right, which is wrong.

Biden’s misappropriated classified documents problem keeps getting worse with a second tranche of documents being discovered at another location. It is now clear that the first set of classified documents found at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement was not an isolated incident. Despite that, the FBI and National Archives are continuing to take a casual approach to the case. There have been no raids of Biden facilities. And won’t be. But beyond the misappropriation of classified documents, a violation of the Espionage Act, the discovery renews old questions about the foreign connections of Joe Biden and his family.

Border crossers, who arrived in New York City on buses from Texas, are refusing to leave a luxury Manhattan hotel that city officials had placed them in. Over the weekend, city officials sought to move migrants out of the Watson Hotel in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan and to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal where Mayor Eric Adams has constructed a massive shelter for new arrivals. Many of the border crossers staying at the Watson Hotel, paid for by taxpayers, are refusing to leave and have instead set up a homeless encampment outside the hotel. There, they are demanding the city “cancel rent” and provide them with “permanent homes.” (Tweet)

Joe Biden repeated an untrue story for at least the eighth time on Monday claiming an Amtrak conductor congratulated him for racking up one million miles on the train commuting between Wilmington, Delaware and Washington, D.C. The president has told this fabricated story since at least his 2020 presidential campaign. Standing beside Maryland Governor We Moore, Biden told the often-repeated story as part of his remarks kicking off a new project to replace a train tunnel in Baltimore built in the 1870s. Biden, 80, said a conductor gave him kudos for logging more miles on Amtrak than on Air Force Two as vice president.
