Senior Trump Official: "I Hope A Long Shutdown Smokes Out The Resistance"

"The Daily Caller is taking the rare step of publishing this anonymous op-ed at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose career would be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers."

"On an average day, roughly 15 percent of the employees around me are exceptional patriots serving their country. But 80 percent feel no pressure to produce results. If they don’t feel like doing what they are told, they don’t. Most of my career colleagues actively work against the president’s agenda. This means I typically spend about 15 percent of my time on the president’s agenda and 85 percent of my time trying to stop sabotage, and we have no power to get rid of them ..

Until the shutdown.

Due to the lack of funding, many federal agencies are now operating more effectively from the top down on a fraction of their workforce, with only select essential personnel serving national security tasks. President Trump has created more jobs in the private sector than the furloughed federal workforce. Now that we are shut down, not only are we identifying and eliminating much of the sabotage and waste, but we are finally working on the president’s agenda."

    Most federal employees earn more, with better healthcare / pensions / vacation time, than workers in the private sector. Of course they will protect their individual fiefdoms with the last tax dollar we give them.

    And behind this army of federal sloths, squashing any hope for reform / accountability in the bureaucracy, are the all powerful unions.

    This shutdown is righteous in so many ways.
