Are you ready for the ultimate government shake-up?

Former President Donald Trump is back and he’s got a plan to completely transform the way the federal bureaucracy operates.

According to sources close to the Trump campaign, the former President is set to begin campaigning in earnest over the next few weeks as he seeks to become the GOP’s 2024 presidential nominee.

And, if he wins, he’s got a new plan to “drain the swamp” that is sure to leave many in Washington reeling.

One part of the plan involves an executive order that would allow for the immediate firing of federal workers, ending their virtual ‘job-for-life’ status.

This would strip any official who has anything to do with the policy of any real career protections or due process.

Government employees could essentially be fired at will or even on a whim.

The Conservative Brief confirms:

Former President Donald Trump, who is set to begin campaigning in earnest over the next few weeks as he seeks to become the GOP’s 2024 presidential nominee, has been developing a new plan to “drain the swamp” should he manage to win.

One part of the plan involves an executive order that would allow for the immediate firing of federal workers, thereby ending their virtual ‘job-for-life’ status.

“It would strip any official who has anything to do with the policy of any real career protections or due process. Government employees could essentially be fired at will or even on a whim,” a federal worker union official warned, according to the Washington Examiner.

During his first term, Trump had hopes of reforming federal employee hiring and firing processes in order to replace embedded careerists who were slow-walking or thwarting his agenda, but his administration ran into tough resistance from federal unions.

In July, a report noted that Trump and his allies spent the previous several months meticulously planning not only his return to the White House but also a massive overhaul of the federal bureaucracy down to the mid-staff level that could lead to tens of thousands of firings.

According to Axios, whose correspondents spent three months interviewing some two dozen Trump insiders and others familiar with the planning, Trump will reimplement “Schedule F,” an executive order he issued just days before the 2020 election and which was quickly rescinded by President Joe Biden that calls for completely reshaping hundreds of federal agencies.

The plan calls for replacing current bureaucrats with young professionals who are all-in with his “MAGA” agenda. Schedule F formed a new category of federal employees who are in “positions of a confidential, policy-determining, policy-making, or policy-advocating character,” and allows for those employees to be replaced following a presidential transition.

“The Federal Government benefits from career professionals in positions that are not normally subject to change as a result of a Presidential transition,” the order says.

The federal government is about to see a major shake-up, and it’s all thanks to Trump’s bold new plan to “drain the swamp”.

If and when he wins, the way the government operates will never be the same.

Keep reading, as we take a deep dive into the details of Trump’s plan and what it means for the future of our country.

Are you ready for a massive shakeup of the swamp?

Because that’s exactly what could happen if former President Trump is elected to a second term.

Trump signed an executive order in October 2020, “Creating Schedule F in the Excepted Service.”

This established a new employment category for federal employees, allowing the immediate firing of tens of thousands of civil servants who serve in roles deemed to have some influence over policy.

In other words, this gives the president the power to replace them with people more loyal to the “America First” agenda.

Axios confirms:

Trump signed an executive order, “Creating Schedule F in the Excepted Service,” in October 2020, which established a new employment category for federal employees. It received wide media coverage for a short period, then was largely forgotten in the mayhem and aftermath of Jan. 6 — and quickly was rescinded by President Biden.

Sources close to Trump say that if he were elected to a second term, he would immediately reimpose it.

Tens of thousands of civil servants who serve in roles deemed to have some influence over policy would be reassigned as “Schedule F” employees. Upon reassignment, they would lose their employment protections.

New presidents typically get to replace more than 4,000 so-called “political” appointees to oversee the running of their administrations. But below this rotating layer of political appointees sits a mass of government workers who enjoy strong employment protections — and typically continue their service from one administration to the next, regardless of the president’s party affiliation.

An initial estimate by the Trump official who came up with Schedule F found it could apply to as many as 50,000 federal workers — a fraction of a workforce of more than 2 million, but a segment with a profound role in shaping American life.

Trump, in theory, could fire tens of thousands of career government officials with no recourse for appeals. He could replace them with people he believes are more loyal to him and to his “America First” agenda.

Even if Trump did not deploy Schedule F to this extent, the very fact that such power exists could create a significant chilling effect on government employees.

It would effectively upend the modern civil service, triggering a shock wave across the bureaucracy. The next president might then move to gut those pro-Trump ranks — and face the question of whether to replace them with her or his own loyalists, or revert to a traditional bureaucracy.

Such pendulum swings and politicization could threaten the continuity and quality of service to taxpayers, the regulatory protections, the checks on executive power, and other aspects of American democracy.

Trump’s allies claim such pendulum swings will not happen because they will not have to fire anything close to 50,000 federal workers to achieve the result, as one source put it, of “behavior change.” Firing a smaller segment of “bad apples” among the career officials at each agency would have the desired chilling effect on others tempted to obstruct Trump’s orders.

They say Schedule F will finally end the “farce” of a nonpartisan civil service that they say has been filled with activist liberals who have been undermining GOP presidents for decades.

Unions and Democrats would be expected to immediately fight a Schedule F order. But Trump’s advisers like their chances in a judicial system now dominated at its highest levels by conservatives.

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.), who chairs the subcommittee that oversees the federal civil service, is among a small group of lawmakers who never stopped worrying about Schedule F, even after Biden rescinded the order. Connolly has been so alarmed that he attached an amendment to this year’s defense bill to prevent a future president from resurrecting Schedule F. The House passed Connolly’s amendment but Republicans hope to block it in the Senate.

This is a move that could change the very fabric of our government and it’s something that you don’t want to miss.

It would give the government back to the people.

Will Trump be able to reimpose Schedule F and “drain the swamp” or will Democrats and unions be able to stop him?

Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure, the fate of the deep state is at stake.
