Executive Order: improving efficiency

And eliminating unnecessary or redundant agencies.
Presidential Executive Order on a Comprehensive Plan for Reorganizing the Executive Branch

EXECUTIVE ORDER

- - - - - - -

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR REORGANIZING THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1.  Purpose.  This order is intended to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of the executive branch by directing the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (Director) to propose a plan to reorganize governmental functions and eliminate unnecessary agencies (as defined in section 551(1) of title 5, United States Code), components of agencies, and agency programs.

Sec. 2.  Proposed Plan to Improve the Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Accountability of Federal Agencies, Including, as Appropriate, to Eliminate or Reorganize Unnecessary or Redundant Federal Agencies.  (a)  Within 180 days of the date of this order, the head of each agency shall submit to the Director a proposed plan to reorganize the agency, if appropriate, in order to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of that agency.
It would certainly be a blow to the Deep State if the God-Emperor started with the CIA and the NSA. Looks like the lull period is over and it's back to the grand offensive.

Still not tried of smiling…. The God-Emperor is impressive even this early in the game. He could do a great deal of efficiency improvements at State and Justice too. Lots of Obamabots and assorted dead-weight in both locales. Perhaps get rid of all the jackboot departments of the different agencies? I still remember some folks being surprised to find the Dept. of Edumaycashun has its own well equipped SWAT teams to go after certain loan defaulters who lacked sufficient melanin content during the reign of His Magical Negretude.

Speaking from experience, the majority of the glut within the Federal service is centered in the DC area. I started my career as a GS, then moved over into the IC (Excepted Service), and within two years of that move, got out.

Yeah, the benefits are great (that's what gets you in), but I can make more via a private corporate entity and provide a bit of stability when the GSers aren't properly installed in their positions or (as is more often the case) actually capable of performing the job they were hired to do. Plus, all of the paperwork bullshit turned me off.

Besides, all of the real work is done outside of the DC area, anyways. That's what most of the people who don't support this don't seem to understand.

OK, that will bear fruit six months or a year from now. Right now, the Feds are almost out of cash. They were at over $400B in cash on Oct. 24, now less than $30B (they stopped reporting), and they've been going through over $6B a day. The Federal government could mostly shut down on the 15th. Stockman thinks it could last until Memorial day, maybe a up to three months beyond that with raiding the trust funds, but at the end of it the USG will need to borrow $500B in a short period of time, which could crash the stock market and the bond market at the same time. Now might be a good time to get out of the market. Stockman Explains The Mystery Of The Treasury's Disappearing Cash

Another story I found interesting is that the spying on Trump was done through British GCHQ / Five Eyes. This was long known to be the protocol for warantless domestic surveilance: we spy on each other's citizens and swap data. Supposedly this is legal. This gives a good reason why P.M.

I'm afraid this doesn't fill me with much win. It's full of wishy-washy studies will be done where appropriate, and from that a plan will be made, and ... no action items from that plan except for publishing the plan in the federal register.

IOW what distinguishes this from any other "good government" / "efficient government" initiative. E.g., Al Gore's "National Partnership For Reinventing Government".

Highlights from that article (written in 2013) - which was a 20 year retrospective: a) Reforming the IRS, b) Improved treatment at hospitals run by the Veteran Affairs Dept., c) improved attitude at agencies like the EPA and FDA and CPSC so that they were no longer "them against the world", and finally d) shrinking government workforce.

How well did any of those "reinventing government" initiatives stand up in the last 16 years - especially the last 8 years? IRS? VA? EPA? FDA? Shrinking workforce?

The sad fact is ... since Nixon the President doesn't have the ability to sequester/impound appropriated funds, and the line item veto was struck down by the Supreme Court so we're never going to see that.

Thus: No federal department, agency, board, commission, or government-owned corporation is going to be dismantled without Congress passing a law to do it (or zeroing it out in a budget law).

Therefore: It ain't going to happen in our lifetimes, much as I wish Trump would take a flamethrower to 90% of the non-military government (any 90% he could pick at random, I wouldn't much care which).

Two things caught my attention. First, consideration be given to spin that agency off to a state level, or private sector contractor. Secondly recommendations are to be published in FR for public comment.

Asking people if you would like the IRS shutdown, and it's functions passed back to each State's tax collection system, or to a private sector contractor, will get lots of "hell YES!"

I would rank the IRS as one of those agencies particularly at risk. This can be a pretty good deal. Some years ago Missouri outsourced DMV to various contractors, and the service is way better than it was when the state drones were running it.

Fake News has been reporting what are purported to be 'transcripts' of admin phone calls for months.

where do transcripts come from? FROM WIRETAPPING OPERATIONS. so Fake News ( including NYT and WaPo ) have been 'documenting' that Trump admin was tapped last year during the election AND they've been documenting this for months.

so now that Trump has called them out on their retarded shit, they are studiously ignoring the subject or trying to accuse Trump of making it up.

even though we've got documentation on Obama making multiple FISA court warrant applications and going to the extent of removing Trump's name from the warrant app in order to sucker the FISA judge into approving it.

1) He paid federal taxes in 2005.
2) He had used up all of the Carry Forward loss from 1995.

So, we've now confirmed he's written off a $1 Billion in income from 1996 through 2004. Well played by the God Emperor.

I am pleased to tell you all that since the time you reached out to Our Lord on his behalf, the infection has largely resolved and is no longer an immediate threat. His ongoing condition still remains worrisome, but he was able to get through this particular storm, I am convinced with the help of your prayers and good wishes.

The local US Forest Service district has over 40 people working in it. Their district covers less than 85,000 acres and puts up less than 2 million board feet of timber for sale. To contrast, a local privately held TIMO has over 100,000 acres and puts out out over 40 million feet of timber with a staff of 8.
Recently, someone I know stopped by the local USFS district office - on groundhogs day - for some business.. No one appeared to be around. Until he went into a side room where all the employees were sitting there watching the film “ Ground Hog Day”.

States that have traditionally had less than 20 % of their land base under federal ownership are poised to become over 60 % or more federally owned within the next ten years. Using watershed protection as their smokescreen - they appear to be the main agency responsible for implementing the final phase of Agenda 21.

"Trump more than likely leaked this release as well."

Of course, Madcow has a point about there being a problem with Trump being paid more than double what he paid for a house by a Russian Oligarch.

Then there is this: http://lawnewz.com/uncategorized/president-trump-on-witness-list-in-case-involving-pedophile-billionaire-jeffrey-epstein/

Why is Trump being called as a witness in a case involving pedophile?

The Democratic donor frequented Trump's Mar-a-lago.

Why is he being called? Because he's POTUS and counsel is intetested in grand theater.

"The Democratic donor frequented Trump's Mar-a-lago."

Maybe. Or it could be something to do with this Trump quip:

"I've known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it -- Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

@48 I'd laugh my ass off if she was punked by someone planting an intentionally fake tax return.

I was half right. Rachel Madcow was punked with 12 year old real return. I heard a yuge hissing sound awhile ago. It was the air sighing out of all the libtards. There's sure going to be a lot of popcorn to clean up.

You left out the punctuation.
He bought low and sold high? It's a business transaction. That's how they're supposed to work. Find some low-IQ undisciplined pig who needs to unload the house immediately before the mafia shows up at the door, take your time selling it to get the price you want. Seems straightforward to me.

Because a grandstanding lawyer thinks it will help him encourage and or force people to pungle up hundreds of millions of dollars.

Really, if this is the best you've got, time to go back to jacking practice. You'll get it right eventually.

Let's hope it's not what so many think it is

Judging from what I see on clips, Id say it wouldnt make a difference what it showed. Trump is doing what he said he would, the population understands that the entire system is corrupt, and that this is the only man taking their issues seriously. The IRS report coild have a video of Trump shooting a pregnant woman in the belly and the majority of the country would quietly assume he had a good reason to do it amd let it go provided he doesnt make a habit of it and does his job properly.

The Washington Post published an article assessing the effects of Trump's proposed reductions. They figured it would spell a 3% reduction in the federal workforce around DC, 1.9% decline in home prices, and all this translated to untold dire misery, woe, death, pain and agony.

President Harding cut the size of the federal government IN HALF. He did this in response to an extremely severe economic downturn. President Coolidge kept it at it, and put the kibosh on runaway immigration, too, with the most stringent immigration limits ever seen in this country.

What resulted was the Roaring Twenties, a time of muscular exuberance never seen in this country before or since. These two guys are a model for our times. They showed the way.

Trump needs to slash the federal government and keep slashing. And slash taxes, too, as Harding and Coolidge did, too, to great effect.

One of the benefits of having separate agencies is you can defund one & have it matter instead of having it be part of a group.

judges shoot this one down. Maybe they can find a "right to a government job" in the Constitution?

Its right there next to forcing calligraphers to write lesbian wedding invitations.

Might not work, it would jeopardize the Federal Reserve. The

Lets audit the FED first.

MSNBCCOMCAST. White House chortling. If true, why didn't anyone sit down and examine the data before they ran with this?

TRUMP may have leaked this specific year just for that purpose. I posted on gab, a twitter screenshot from a feminist marcher who said women give birth to 1/2 the population, so its math & science that explain the pay gap.

Until he went into a side room where all the employees were sitting there watching the film “ Ground Hog Day”.

Don't try sneaking onto a military base to see tankers playing video games in their barracks rooms most duty days except for when they transfer the tanks to gunnery ranges.

being a problem with Trump being paid more than double what he paid for a house by a Russian Oligarch.

Trump beat NYC jews at the real estate game, the Russian jew that stole resources from ethnic Russians didn't have a chance

Trump's proposed reductions. They figured it would spell a 3% reduction in the federal workforce around DC, 1.9% decline in home prices

Because he's on record as having said that he was invited to one of Epstein's parties, noticed immediately that none of the girls had tits, and left.  IOW, witness for the prosecution.

So's cheering when the God-Emperor helps take down a major-league pedophile.
