Civil Service jobs are reknowned for offering job security, that’s considered their greatest perk. But throw all of that bathwater out with the baby in the era of Trump. Nobody is secure in a government post these days unless you’re a Trumpkin, it doesn’t matter how competent you are. As a matter of fact, competence itself is looked upon with suspicion, as an indicator of a good mind, and the only mindset wanted in this mis-administration is one that is tuned to worshiping the Orange God. Trump’s former body man is now in charge of the Presidential Personnel Office and he’s about to shake up a lot of careers. Axios:

Johnny McEntee called in White House liaisons from cabinet agencies for an introductory meeting Thursday, in which he asked them to identify political appointees across the U.S. government who are believed to be anti-Trump, three sources familiar with the meeting tell Axios.

Behind the scenes: McEntee, a 29-year-old former body man to Trump who was fired in 2018 by then-Chief of Staff John Kelly but recently rehired — and promoted to head the presidential personnel office — foreshadowed sweeping personnel changes across government.

  • But McEntee suggested the most dramatic changes may have to wait until after the November election.

  • Trump has empowered McEntee — whom he considers an absolute loyalist — to purge the “bad people” and “Deep State.”

  • McEntee told staff that those identified as anti-Trump will no longer get promotions by shifting them around agencies.

That’s pretty straightforward, isn’t it? If you don’t play ball with Trump, he’ll ruin your career, end of story. There is one story in Washington that needs to end and one only — and that is his.

The lack of a quorum of FEC commissioners is terrifying.

Wow, I’m just to the point I no longer know what to say! When will all of this come to an end!! Do the republicans, Trump’s base, really want an authoritarian as our leader, really?

I wonder if they have any clue the extent this is happening. I sometimes think they just vote and cheer for the person who says what they want to hear.

Yes, they do. But count on it—If a Democratic president expresses the smallest of authoritarian tendencies, they will be out front warning of the Constitutional crisis and violation of the presidential oath to defend the Constitution.

Look at the states where majority-R legislatures are trying to take power away from D governors – they were fine with governors having that power when they were R.
