BIDEN BLOCKS TRUMP FROM FIRING BUREAUCRATS

Biden moves to block Trump, future presidents from firing bureaucrats

By Stephen Dinan  The Washington Times  Thursday, April 4, 2024

President Biden finalized new civil service protections on Thursday aimed at preventing the sort of bureaucratic housecleaning that former President Donald Trump plans, should he win reelection.

At stake are potentially tens of thousands of policymaking jobs across the government and the ability to have them follow the president’s direction or face firing.

That has become a top goal of Republicans after the deep state thwarted or watered down many of Mr. Trump’s initiatives. It also has become a chief fear of Democrats.

Mr. Biden said his rules would insulate employees from such political pressure by making it tougher to reclassify their jobs and then fire them.

“Day in and day out, career civil servants provide the expertise and continuity necessary for our democracy to function,” Mr. Biden said. “This rule is a step toward combatting corruption and partisan interference to ensure civil servants are able to focus on the most important task at hand: delivering for the American people.”

The rules shield federal workers from losing civil service protections if they are involuntarily moved into job classifications that lack those protections. The rules also create an appeals process for workers who are shifted.

The target is indisputably Mr. Trump, who issued an executive order late in his administration that could have allowed thousands of career civil service positions to be reclassified, making it easier to fire workers.

Mr. Trump said removing “poorly performing employees” who fell under civil service protections had become too difficult, so reclassifying them was a way to get better results from the bureaucracy.

Known as Schedule F, the order was aimed at positions that create policy. Trump officials said those jobs ought to be responsive to the president.

The National Treasury Employees Union, a major public-sector labor union that sued to block Schedule F, said it could have swept up “tens of thousands of frontline federal employees.”

Mr. Biden revoked Schedule F when he took office, derailing the lawsuit.

Mr. Trump has been eyeing a revival should he win the White House in November.

The new rule, finalized Thursday by the Office of Personnel Management, will make it tougher for Mr. Trump or another administration, but not impossible, to surmount.

To overcome a regulation, a president must either go through the rulemaking process again, which can take months or years, or persuade Congress to pass legislation.

James Sherk, who led the Trump administration’s civil service efforts, said the new regulations will be a speed bump but not a roadblock. He said the chief wrinkle is that writing the rules could give Mr. Trump’s opponents more room for court challenges to a policy.

Mr. Sherk said federal employees have long leaned to the left but appear to have skewed hard left since the Obama years, based on campaign donation data.

“In most agencies, the career employees are more liberal than 90% of Americans,” he said.

He released a report, “Tales From the Swamp,” highlighting areas where Trump plans were thwarted by the liberal ideological bent of bureaucrats.

Trump: Election Day Will Be ‘Christian Visibility Day’

by Paul Bois    April 2, 2024

Former President Donald Trump declared that the November election will be “Christian Visibility Day” in opposition to President Joe Biden’s declaration of “Transgender Day of Visibility” on March 31, which coincided with Easter Sunday this year.

“Election Day, November 5th, will be the most important day in the History of our Country. It will also be Christian Visibility Day, the biggest turnout of Christians in the history of our Country!” the former president declared on his Truth Social account.

As Breitbart News reported, the president sparked controversy over the weekend when he used Good Friday to proclaim “Transgender Day of Visibility” on March 31, which coincided with Easter.

BIDEN DECLARES EASTER SUNDAY ‘TRANSGENDER DAY OF VISIBILITY’

Saturday, March 30th, 2024

 

Unbelievable  !!!   Nancy  

Joe Biden Declares Easter Sunday ‘Transgender Day of Visibility

BRADLEY JAYE

30 Mar 2024

President Joe Biden’s White House has declared the holiest of Christian holidays “Transgender Day of Visibility,” announcing that “transgender Americans are part of the fabric of our nation.”

Biden issued an official proclamation on Good Friday, reading, “We honor the extraordinary courage and contributions of transgender Americans and reaffirm our Nation’s commitment to forming a more perfect Union — where all people are created equal and treated equally throughout their lives.”

The official proclamation continued:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 31, 2024, as Transgender Day of Visibility. I call upon all Americans to join us in lifting up the lives and voices of transgender people throughout our Nation and to work toward eliminating violence and discrimination based on gender identity.

Biden’s chosen day for the inaugural celebration is Easter Sunday — a day on which, even Biden, who discusses his Catholic faith often, celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The Biden White House has made the promotion of transgenderism a cornerstone of its policy agenda, with Biden in his 2024 State of the Union address pledging loyalty to transgender Americans. His proclamation touts the work he has done to promote that agenda:

I am proud that my Administration has stood for justice from the start, working to ensure that the LGBTQI+ community can live openly, in safety, with dignity and respect.  I am proud to have appointed transgender leaders to my Administration and to have ended the ban on transgender Americans serving openly in our military.  I am proud to have signed historic Executive Orders that strengthen civil rights protections in housing, employment, health care, education, the justice system, and more.  I am proud to have signed the Respect for Marriage Act into law, ensuring that every American can marry the person they love.

The proclamation continues:

Republicans Help Democrats Pass Omnibus Spending Bill

Wednesday, March 27th, 2024
Thanks to Royal Brown of Florida for sharing this information with us on the recently passed $1.2 trillion Omnibus Spending Bill.  Democrats do this to Republicans every time – wait till the last minute to bring forward a huge spending bill packed with pork for their Democrat pet projects.  A government shut down is threatened if Republicans don’t cave and surprise, surprise, the Republicans fall for it every time. 

Nancy

The terrible 1,200+ page $1.2 T Omnibus Spending Bill passed March 22 once again increasing the National Debt; funding most of Democrat agenda and made very few cuts or needed increases needed for a true conservative Republican agenda.  Beijing Joe Biden and Chuck U Schumer put it over on House Speaker Mike Johnson who along with another 100 Republicans voted to pass this bill.  See a partial list of the bad spending at link that follows:
The House vote was bipartisan, with 286 members for it — 185 Democrats and 101 Republicans — and 134 against. Twelve members did not vote. To see an alphabetical  list of how each House Member voted click on:  How each House member voted on the $1.2 trillion funding package | CNN Politics
The omnibus bill passed through the Senate with a 68-29 vote. The 68 Senators who voted in favor of passing the bill included 18 Republicans.  Both FL Senators Rubio and Scott correctly voted NO on the bill.
Following  is a  list of the 18 Republican Senators who voted in favor of this bad bill (most are usual suspects e.g. establishment, ruling class, elitist, neo-con RINOs):
  • Roy Blunt (Missouri)
  • John Boozman (Arkansas)
  • Shelley Capito (West Virginia)
  • Susan Collins (Maine)
  • John Cornyn (Texas)
  • Tom Cotton (Arkansas)
  • Lindsey Graham (South Carolina)
  • Jim Inhofe (Oklahoma)
  • Mitch McConnell (Kentucky)
  • Jerry Moran (Kansas)
  • Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
  • Rob Portman (Ohio)
  • Mitt Romney (Utah)
  • Mike Rounds (South Dakota)
  • Richard Shelby (Alabama)
  • John Thune (South Dakota)
  • Roger Wicker (Mississippi)
  • Todd Young (Indiana)
So the overspending adding more to the National Debt goes on without securing the border or demanding accountability for spending in areas which are anti-American, anti-Constitution, immoral, promote the LGBTQ agenda and/or not in best national interests of the United States or the safety of its citizens.

The Democrats have certainly done an about face on illegal immigration since 1995 !  This c-span video is a  this reminder of what Democrats used to stand for.

CRISIS ON OUR NORTHERN BORDER

Sunday, March 17th, 2024

 

The number 1 issue in this year’s election is shaping up to be our country’s massive problem over illegal immigration, our open borders and Biden’s refusal to use his powers that congress gave him to stop this invasion into our country.  With the stroke of his pen, Biden could stop this invasion.  Nancy
We’re So Sick of It:  Northern Border Crisis Gets Worse
Border Patrol apprehensions of illegal immigrants at the northern U.S. border have jumped from 916 in fiscal year 2021 to 10,021 in fiscal 2023
by Allan Stein   March 16, 2024

HIGHGATE, Vt.—At dawn or dusk, Kristy Brow used to enjoy alone time walking in the woods on her 21-acre property in Highgate, Vermont, a small rural town near the U.S.–Canada border.

Lately, however, she’s cautious—she’s worried about potential encounters with illegal immigrants along the remote logging trail.

“I don’t go out by myself anymore—especially at night,” said Mrs. Brow, who runs a dog obedience business from her home.

“It’s unsettling. You can’t feel relaxed anymore,” she said. “You want to be safe in your own house and on your property.

“It’s getting bad. Sometimes, you see them on the interstate, looking for a ride.”

Mrs. Brow and her husband are both avid hunters and have deer stands set up on their property. Their game cameras often record illegal immigrants passing through.

‘They shouldn’t be here!’ Palm Beach Co sheriff warns Americans in furious presser after arrest of 3 migrants accused of heinous crime

March 14, 2024 | Melissa Fine 

With fury and frustration on full display, Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw blasted the Biden administration for failing to protect American citizens from illegal migrants who “never should’ve been in this country.”

The angry Wednesday morning press conference came just days after the arrest of three Guatemalan men, here illegally, for allegedly kidnapping and sexually assaulting a Palm Beach woman.

Andres Felipe Morales, 29; Darinel Ordonez Jjimenez, 30; and Marcos Felipe Ramirez, 31, were booked into the Palm Beach County jail on Monday, hours after allegedly “forcing a woman into a car at around 1 am Monday and sexually battering her at two locations west of Lake Worth Beach,” according to the Daily Mail.

Their bond was set at $200,000 each,” the outlet reports. “Morales faces counts of sexual assault and false imprisonment while the others were charged with felony criminal conspiracy.”

“This morning, I’m just here to deliver a message,” Bradshaw told reporters on Wednesday. “And the message is, don’t think for a minute that what happens at the Mexican border doesn’t affect us here.”

“Here you have three illegals that should’ve never been in this country that have committed a very serious crime: kidnapping and sexual battery of a lady,” the sheriff said. “They shouldn’t be here!”

RACIAL DISPARITY/RACIAL DISCRIMINATION

Wednesday, March 13th, 2024

 

This  madness of racial disparity is the result of racial discrimination will only lead to  a further rapid decline of our country.    Nancy

Disparate Impact Thinking Is Destroying Our Civilization

Heather Mac Donald

Manhattan Institute

Heather Mac Donald is the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor of City Journal. She earned a B.A. from Yale University, an M.A. in English from Cambridge University, and a J.D. from Stanford Law School. She writes for several newspapers and periodicals, including The Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, and The New Criterion, and is the author of several books, including The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe and When Race Trumps Merit: How the Pursuit of Equity Sacrifices Excellence, Destroys Beauty, and Threatens Lives.

The following is adapted from a talk delivered on February 15, 2024, at a Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminar in Naples, Florida.

The most consequential falsehood in American public policy today is the idea that any racial disparity in any institution is by definition the result of racial discrimination.

If a cancer research lab, for example, does not have 13 percent black oncologists—the black share of the national population—it is by definition a racist lab that discriminates against competitively qualified black oncologists; if an airline company doesn’t have 13 percent black pilots, it is by definition a racist airline company that discriminates against competitively qualified black pilots; and if a prison population contains more than 13 percent black prisoners, our law enforcement system is racist.

The claim that racial disparities are proof of racial discrimination has been percolating in academia and the media for a long time. After the George Floyd race riots of 2020, however, it was adopted by America’s most elite institutions, from big law and big business to big finance. Even museums and orchestras took up the cry.

Many thought that STEM—the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics—would escape the diversity sledgehammer. They were wrong. The American Medical Association today insists that medicine is characterized by white supremacy. Nature magazine declares that science manifests one of “humankind’s worst excesses”: racism. The Smithsonian Institution announces that “emphasis on the scientific method” and an interest in “cause and effect relationships” are part of totalitarian whiteness.

As a result of this falsehood, we are eviscerating meritocratic and behavioral standards in accordance with what is known as “disparate impact analysis.”

 

Consider medicine. Step One of the medical licensing exam, taken during or after the second year of medical school, tests medical students’ knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology. On average, black students score lower on the grading curve, making it harder for them to land their preferred residencies. Step One, in other words, has a “disparate impact” on black medical students. The solution, implemented last year, was to eliminate the Step One grading disparity by instituting a pass–fail system. Hospitals choosing residents can no longer distinguish between high and low achieving students—and that is precisely the point!
