The Deconstruction of the Administrative State Continues

Still, she persisted.

Still, she persisted.

During the 2016 Goat Rodeo and aftermath, we were told by Hair Führer’s handlers/administrators and toadies and minions to…

Take Donald Trump seriously but not literally — or better yet, take him symbolically, a member of the president-elect’s transition executive committee advised Tuesday. “No, no, no, no, don’t take him literally, take him symbolically,” Anthony Scaramucci told MSNBC. “See, it’s different.”Dec 20, 2016

Which seemed fair because he is a babbling, mewling idiot.

Then there was Bannon’s ominous comment at CPAC:

The third, broadly, line of work is what is deconstruction of the administrative state…

I think the consistent, if you look at these Cabinet appointees, they were selected for a reason and that is the deconstruction, the way the progressive left runs, is if they can’t get it passed, they’re just gonna put in some sort of regulation in — in an agency.

That’s all gonna be deconstructed and I think that that’s why this regulatory thing is so important.

…seemed like more of an operating principle, a philosophy more than something actionable. Most of the Russian Usurper’s Executive Orders seem inoperative, but to the mouth breathers were red meat, and the Muslim Ban was clearly unconstitutional and was immediately blocked.

Of course, Bannon/Pence/Priebus appointed people so profoundly unqualified to be agency and department heads (Pence’ theocrat buddy Betsy DeVos comes to mind) that one feels assured that by the end of the term the department will be diminished.

And now we have this interview on Petunia And Pals:

“A lot of those jobs, I don’t want to appoint someone because they’re unnecessary to have. In government, we have too many people.”

And remember, we were advised to not take him literally, only symbolically. I think that’s another misdirection.

It’s easy in the abstract to say that there are too many people working in government (and no explanation why that is a bad thing), but those jobs were created to solve real problems. Competence in those jobs as we learned from Chimpy’s  FEMA director Brownie is essential.

And so here’s the thing: not only are many/most of the secretaries and department heads incompetent ideologues who want to burn the government to the ground and then salt the earth, The Russian Usurper is now telling us that he’s not going to fill other jobs. Symbolically or Literally?

We don’t know what it will be, but when Trump’s Katrina hits —and it will— we will all see the cruelness of their calculated destruction of ‘the administrative state.’ It will be different from Chimpy’s incompetence. Bannon has told us this is a feature, not a bug.

    Please, somebody take him. Preferably take him to Mars or Pluto. Yes, yes Pluto, it’s not really a planet. It’s more like a giant lump of very cold shit. How appropriate for Herr Drumpfenfuhrer.

    Speaking of Trump’s Katrina, at least there is an experienced Acting Administrator of FEMA serving in the position. I’m guessing that won’t be a position filled by a Trump political appointee since it would be an incompetent clown, of course.

    Call me crazy and I’ll agree. But, I (think I see) see that tRump is hell bent on destroying Government as we all know and rely on it. His goal seems to be to kill off Government as fast as he can, as if knowing he will be thrown out of power soon? Perhaps his thought ( a laugh there, as if he ‘can’ “think”) is to leave us willing to accept Pence’s ‘Theocratic style of Government more readily? Heck, I’d accept Shrub for a third term over these current nitwits.
    Still, “follow the money” seems to be a guiding principle in this age as all others.

      No, I think he just wants to steal everything he can and sell off the rest. More empty positions in the Government mean fewer people to stop him, fewer witnesses and fewer bribes.

    The entire government (except the legislative branch) will be nothing more than a fond memory in less than 4 years, thanks to Dolt 45.
