Head of Office of Personnel Management Abrubtly Resigns

The leader of the Office of Personnel Management has abruptly resigned. Reports indicate this could have been apart of a larger effort to remove anti-Trump figures from positions of leadership in the bureaucracy.

According to The Hill:

The head of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) abruptly resigned Tuesday, leaving a void atop a sprawling agency that oversees the federal workforce.


“OPM has received the resignation of OPM Director Dale Cabaniss and OPM Deputy Director Michael Rigas is Acting Director, Office of Personnel Management,” an OPM spokesperson confirmed in a statement.

Cabaniss’s departure was unexpected, according to sources familiar with the matter, and was believed to be related to internal conflicts.

She chafed at treatment by John McEntee, the 29-year-old head of the office, as well as Paul Dans, OPM’s White House liaison, Politico reported. McEntee rejoined the White House last month and has set about stocking the administration with officials loyal to President Trump and his agenda.

The office oversees the HR duties of the federal government and apparently the hiring of a college senior was too much to handle for the outgoing leader.

Lets work through this
Obama dismissed any people he did not appoint and put in his own “Czars” who terrified by absolute rule the career federal servants -m even dismissing them with loss of pension at the for the slightest. Di you know you could be dismissed is caught talking about Obama’s lack of abonifide Birth Certificate?
Obama then staffed all Senior executive positions in the Administration with his own loyalists to ensure they would be loyal to him and not the future president after Obama left office.
Thet the framer of this article snidely remarks in a backhanded way ” McEntee set about stocking the administration with officials loyal to President Trump and his agenda.”
Yet no mention of Obama loyalist and Obama’s ongoing agenda.
No wonder the writer didn’t sign their name.

During the first two years of Trump’s presidency I was vocal on social media to remove those ‘Obama hold-over federal employees’. They’ve never respected President Trump at all. Federal government employees should be fired if they are bias to whoever will be the next president of the United States. Also it would be better to check every state employees in regards of their salary. We must reduced the size of the government. I can give you a lot of examples in the state of Nevada – 2018 Salaries for Clark County (alone) is too outrageous.

What part of the Constitution mentions bureaucratic agencies of any kind, any where in our government? Time to clear the overhead, and this “world crisis” is just too good of an excuse, to not take advantage of it……
“goodbye city life”….IT”S TIME to send these non-essentials back to the green acres…
Don’t go away mad…just go away!
