STARNES: [00:03:12] There is a crazy story over at Axios. And if this is true, then I think Donald Trump should be reelected in a landslide.
So according to the reporting of Axios and this is Jonathan Swan and he’s got some pretty good he has some pretty good intel, some pretty good insight into what’s going on inside the Beltway. Trump allies are preparing to do a complete overhaul of the federal government.
Now, one of the reasons and it’s easy to forget these little nuggets, but they’re important nuggets, one of the reasons why the establishment Republicans despise Donald Trump, and especially Liz Cheney, is because Donald Trump was cleaning out the swamp in Washington.
Liz Cheney’s father is one of the largest swamp creatures. I mean, the guy’s making tens of millions of dollars on these government contracts and the military industrial complex. It’s unbelievable the amount of money that Dick Cheney has made as a result of his connections in federal government.
And President Trump was eliminating all of that. He was he went in there and he started getting rid of as many swamp creatures as he could. The problem is and anybody who lives in Louisiana, you folks in Lafayette, Louisiana, you know all about this, the swamp, you got tons of the, you got the snakes and you got the crawfish and the alligators, all sorts of critters down there, not to mention Swamp Thing. So there was a lot of work to be done and the president was not able to finish the job.
Well, according to Axios, if Trump goes back in and is president of the United States, they are going to implement a policy that is going to immediately terminate the employment of thousands, if not tens of thousands of government workers in Washington, D.C.
Ah, this is reading from the Axios piece here. The impact could go well beyond conservative targets, such as the EPA and the Internal Revenue Service. Trump allies are working on plans that would strip layers at the Justice Department, including the FBI reaching international security, intelligence, the State Department, the Pentagon.
Axios goes on to say. During his presidency, Trump often complained about what he called the deep state. We were just talking about that. The heart of the plan is derived from an executive order known as Schedule F. It’s already been developed. It’s already been refined. It is ready to go.
The plan was to originally implement this over the second half of Trump’s term and launched. It was launched 13 days before the election. So the report, and it is massive, and we’ll put a link to it over on our website.
As Trump publicly flirts with a 2024 comeback, the planning is quietly flourishing from Mar-a-Lago to Washington. With his blessing, but without the knowledge of some people in his orbit, Trump remains distracted by his obsession with contesting the 2020 election results, but he has endorsed the work of several groups.
The work could accelerate a controversial policy and enforcement change, but also enable revenge tours against real or perceived enemies. They intend to stack thousands of mid-level staff jobs. Well-funded groups are already developing a list of candidates in line with Trump’s long running obsession with draining the swamp.
It includes building extensive databases of people vetted as being committed to Trump and his agenda. The groups are operating on multiple fronts shaping policies, identifying top lieutenants, curating an alternative labor force of unprecedented scale, and preparing for legal challenges and offenses that might go before Trump friendly judges all the way to the Supreme Court.
And I say, Good for you, Mr. President. Tens of thousands of civil servants who served in roles deemed to have some influence over a policy would be reassigned to schedule F employees upon reassignment, they would lose their employment protections.
You see, this is the problem in America. This is the problem with the federal government. Right now, the federal government is controlled by the bureaucracy.
And who is the bureaucracy? It’s all these left-wing lunatics. It’s all of these pajama boy snowflakes. It’s all of the hairy-legged women wearing the Mexican man shoes. It’s all of these people who don’t know their preferred pronouns. They’re the ones that are running the government, and they’ve been there for years, if not decades. We’ve got to do something about it.
You know, we were talking about Fox News a couple of days ago. Fox News, when you look at the primetime lineup, you got the host and everybody is a conservative. Right. But then behind the scenes, you’ve got all of these lower-level employees who are radical leftists, who are sabotaging the efforts of Fox News Channel.
The same thing happened during the Trump administration. You’ve got the leadership coming in. The White House is rock solid conservative, but you’ve got all the underlings, the bureaucracy. Those people have been around for decades and they’re flaming leftist morons.
And Trump, if this is to be believed, there is a plan to fix it. And it this works, this will make Trump the greatest president of all time. If he’s able to implement it.
And this is why people like Liz Cheney and others are so horrified because they know what this president is capable of. They know that this president will, in fact, deliver on those promises he had already started to do.
May I just throw on to the pile here? He needs to follow the advice of former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos last week, and he needs to eliminate the Department of Education. But this is why Liz Cheney is so hell-bent on destroying Donald Trump to the point of wrecking, ruining her own political career. [00:09:42][390.5]
