Breitbart calls government workers "the privileged class."

Trump, not gov workers, is a member of the privileged class, as are the bankers, other trust fund kids, and billionaires he surrounds himself with.

Trump wants to freeze and fire; freezing out people not yet hired eliminates corruption how?

Trump wants to clean out corruption, he should start by calling out the Congress to start working for the people instead of spending most of their time positioning themselves for that fat do nothing consultants job waiting for them in DC.

Mostly attrition.

For example, get rid of the DoED. Redundant, waste of billions of dollars.

Waste? Look at Defense as well. Ridiculous, unnecessary spending throughout.

They should go after wasteful defense boondoggles before they hit up admin people and custodians. Because you know they'll go after the easiest targets first, not the well connected ones.

I agree.

I'm sure Trump will look at all of that in time. He went after the new Air Force One. That's a good sign.

By reducing the numbers of those government workers who would be inclined to vote democratic for no good reason other than to keep the government growing and their jobs safe. Although, I think in this election, many government workers came to the conclusion that the out of control expansion could not go on much longer. Many went from thinking short term benefit$ to longer term security

The White House offered a window into the concentration of wealth among senior advisers serving in President Donald Trump’s administration, releasing financial-disclosure reports on Friday for about 180 of its top paid staff.

Four of Trump’s top advisers—Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn and senior adviser Jared Kushner—held assets collectively worth between $757 million and $1.9 billion, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of their financial disclosures. Aides disclose their income and assets largely in ranges, rather than specific dollar figures.

The wealth of those surrounding the president, himself a billionaire, poses a contrast with the populist tone of Trump’s campaign, which made an explicit appeal to working-class Americans. As a candidate, Trump often railed against Goldman Sachs GS, -0.65% . Now, at least four of his top advisers once worked at the financial firm.

specialties so you believe in an oligarchy not in a republic that practices democracy . Here is an article from the Washington Times (not your left leaning paper).

America is an oligarchy, not a democracy or republic, university study finds

By Cheryl K. Chumley - The Washington Times


America is no longer a democracy — never mind the democratic republic envisioned by Founding Fathers.
Rather, it has taken a turn down elitist lane and become a country led by a small dominant class comprised of powerful members who exert total control over the general population — an oligarchy, said a new study jointly conducted by Princeton and Northwestern universities.
One finding in the study: The U.S. government now represents the rich and powerful, not the average citizen, United Press International reported.
In the study, “Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups and Average Citizens,” researchers compared 1,800 different U.S. policies that were put in place by politicians between 1981 and 2002 to the type of policies preferred by the average and wealthy American, or special interest groups.
Researchers then concluded that U.S. policies are formed more by special interest groups than by politicians properly representing the will of the general people, including the lower-income class.
“The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence,” the study found.

Specialties,
Do you ever get tired of talking in riddles and believing that you are the expert on everything? I am sure that you are impressed with your brilliant word smithing, but the rest of us are getting tired of you. Take a break, please and find something constructive to occupy your vast amounts of free time.

To paraphrase Reagan's response to Jimmy Carter in their presidential debate, "See. There you go again."

If you were responding to questions in my class, you would most certainly get an "F", maybe a "D" for not directly answering the question being asked. Continue on with your perceived brilliance and I have no doubt that you impress yourself everyday with your witticisms.

What is the source of their power? Does it involve some kind of unseemly enterprise? A government entity?

no Vlad_Rap if anyone is an idiot .It is you . I did not write what you stated I wrote. Don't you know give credit to the person who did. Her name is

Cheryl K Chumley. You most likely in school took credit for other peoples work. I am a person who credits the people that did the work. Something that you must not believe in.

C'mon Bobkat- come clean!!

It was the One World Government candidate, Hillary Clinton , of the swamp dwelling Clintons, who was/is the most egregious oligarch going. She would hate a meritocracy that actually benefits the working middle class. And yes, that is what oligarchs do - they pass wealth and power down to their idiot kids and other idiot sycophants...

And why did you post this garbage by Carol Chumley to begin with?? Why!? Why?! You were trying to make some sort of point before you thought you saw an opportunity to rag on me - Correct? Fess up now!!!

That's has some truth. American citizens have been saying it for a decade but the government was not listening. Each election voters pressed for change putting in more and more GOP candidates at all levels, national, state and local. When Obama continued to ignore Americans, Americans voted for Trump to make the changes wanted and needed. Now the United States is back on track to being a true democracy where the government abides to the will of the people not the other way around, like liberal democrats prefer it.

There is strong resistance to draining the swamp and it'll take years.
