A Long Overdue Correction to a Failed Policy

 Trump has used Executive Power to re-classify many federal employees as essentially "at-will" - that is, he removed the "nearly-impossible-to-fire" classification from certain jobs. He did this be looking at the type of job they had - did they have the power to make policy? If they did, they fell into this category, and could be given their walking papers, without having to prove a case against them.

His action makes sense. If the employee can make policy on their own, that sets up a competing line of authority, that could not be removed when the Presidency changed hands. That's what makes the Deep State possible.

Here's an article that explains the change, but with THEIR spin on it. Expect to see links to it, or quotes from it over the next few weeks, as the media and the Deep State try to affect public opinion on this policy. If his action is upheld (and there is ample precedent for it, as supervisory and staff positions do fall into that category), it's the Game-Changer of All Time. Really. By itself, it has the potential to MAKE Trump's 2nd term a Blazing Success.

That's why we hired him. I hope he continues this policy with a vengeance.

I don't mean to be critical, but why so late in the game?
Christopher Wray should have been gone a lot sooner than after the election, too.
