In today’s society, resigning is too easy for Barack Obama holdovers in the federal government, they have to make a grand statement in hopes it will hurt President Trump.
According to the Hill, There’s a growing number of federal employees displaying insubordination and defiance toward White House officials since Trump took office.
The report centers on allegations that some past and present career staffers in the Interior Department and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are purposely showing a lack of respect and in some cases, outright defiance to Trump’s presidential agenda.
That’s not how this works, that’s not how any of this works. Federal employees don’t get to “push back,” they serve the federal government, which is we the people, and the party has changed, don’t like the directive, then get out. Do your job as directed or be fired! This is treason and should be punished appropriately.

A handful of current and former career staffers in the Interior Department and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have openly shredded their superiors within the last several weeks, continuing a trend that has developed throughout the government over the course of Trump’s tenure in the Oval Office.
The growing opposition in the executive branch comes as the White House’s legislative agenda has stalled in Congress and Trump turns to his Cabinet agencies to change course in several policy areas. It also is emanating from career staffers or political holdovers whose resistance to Trump has, at times, been rooted in deep opposition to the president’s agenda.
“From our point of view, it’s kind of obvious,” said Jeff Ruch, the executive director of the Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) group, when asked about staffers’ growing pushback.
“You have Donald Trump, who ran and said he would drain the swamp, meaning them.”
Trump’s allies have often cast the president as the victim of the “deep state,” an entrenched, liberal bureaucracy bent on damaging his agenda through leaks and resistance.
They argue the deep state extends from agencies such as the EPA, where employees could be angered with Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate deal, to career service intelligence agency staff who leak damaging information about the president.
Policy and guidelines changes happen all the time and if an employee refuses to follow and abide by those changes they need to fired with the quickness. There are plenty of qualified people that are willing to fill any positions that open up.
The EPA must be rife with deep state soldiers. It was and is corrupted, with warped policies intended to extend the reach and power of the federal government. True it does take longer to fire a govt employee, but it can be done. If they refuse to do their jobs and follow orders, fire them.
There are still lots of unemployed individuals looking jobs. If those people aren’t performing up to standards and are being insubordinate, fire them. All of what is going on shows just how corrupt this government is. More than I ever knew.
