RUSH LIMBAUGH AND FOX NEWS ARE RIGHT! THERE IS A SHADOW GOVERNMENT!

JUST NOT ONE SECRETLY ORGANIZED BY BARACK OBAMA

The Trump Destruction Administration has been unusually slow in filling Presidential Appointments below the Cabinet head level.  One would think that after filling every Cabinet chief’s position with billionaires who have vowed to destroy the agencies they head, one would assume that the 4,000 or so positions that the Trump Destruction Administration has the opportunity to fill with even more anti-government, destruction of the Administrative State billionaires, they would move expeditiously to fill them.  Well, according to the ultra-liberal Huffington Post via the Washington Post, this hasn’t happened.  What has happened, however, is the peppering of apparatchiks in all the Federal agencies.  "Apparatchik" is a Soviet Era term and generally refers to a person who is placed in a sensitive position to basically ensure that the organization and its personnel toe the Communist Party line.   In the Soviet Union it wasn’t just the military and government agencies but every neighborhood also had a community committee that monitored the actions, words and attitudes of everyone in the neighborhood.  Often, Communist Party plants served as apparatchik in community organizations and reported deviance from Party dicta to the police or the party.  Apparatchiks had one purpose and one purpose only: to ensure that whatever orders came down from the Party were obeyed.  

This, it would appear, is what the Trump Administration is doing.   Naturally, the Trump Team would not describe the administration’s moles quite like this.  They would maintain that this is just what every prior administration has done in the past, yet apparently this just isn’t true.  It is an unusual arrangement that the Obama Administration, the Bush Administration and the Clinton Administration did not employ.  When top cabinet appointees have no experience in government there needs to be someone who can inform them of the White House’s policies, goals and objectives on a daily basis.  EPA’s Scott Pruitt, on the other hand, does have government experience but bristles at the presence of former Washington state senator Don Benton, who ran Trump’s Washington campaign and is now the EPA’s Senior White House Advisor (aka; mole, spy, apparatchik).  EPA officials said Benton piped up so frequently during policy discussions that he has been dis-invited from many of them.  One EPA official described the situation as akin to an episode of the HBO comedy series “Veep.”  This, by the way, at the agency whose head, Scott Pruitt, has made known his animosity for the EPA by 13 lawsuits he filed against the EPA while he was State’s Attorney in Oklahoma. 

Over at the Pentagon, Brett Byers is Trump’s apparatchik and senior Pentagon staff in the Secretary of Defense]s office, call him another Soviet Era term: “Commissar.”  The White House will not acknowledge the existence of this Trump Shadow Government nor discuss any of the "commissars" who have been dispatched to watch over Cabinet heads to make sure they toe the line, since they do not discuss "personnel matters."  One reason why they may be reluctant to discuss this issue is that it smacks of Chief White House Policy Advisor, Stephen Bannon’s oft stated desire to deconstruct the Administrative State, in this case, the Federal Government.  Bannon is by far the most dangerous of all the Trump Associates save for Russia's Vlad Putin himself.  But I can see one yuuuge problem lurking over the horizon.  Given that most, if not all, of Trump’s Cabinet Secretary’s are rich businessmen and women who are used to charting their own course and getting their own way, they are not likely to just roll over and play dead to some Trump operative who might have helped Trump win votes in one state or another.   Or we could see a fairly rapid turnover rate for Cabinet Secretaries.  

But like everything else associated with the Trump Administration, who knows?  Every day seems to bring new surprises to the nation.  Like investigations into Trump and the Trump Team's Russian connections by the FBI.  Or, who knew, for example, that Trump’s campaign promise of “low cost health insurance for everyone” that we would all love, ("You're gonna; Love It" is, I believe, the operative quote here)  would turn out to be the “Trump/Ryan Deathcare Bill" disaster? 


Stay Strong!  Keep Resisting!   

REMEMBER THIS GUY?
 PS:  Anyone recall how during the Presidential campaign, Republicans (and Rush and Alex and Trump and Rust Belters and everyone to the left of Hitler) proclaimed from every corner of the universe that "We cannot have a President who is under investigation by the FBI."

This ironclad rule, however, applied only to the Evil, Lock Her Up, lying traitor, Hillary Clinton.  Naturally, it does NOT apply to Trump.  Why?  Obama!
