INQUISITR
— PRESIDENT TRUMP ADVISER NEWT GINGRICH THINKS HE SHOULD FIRE ALL FEDERAL EMPLOYEES WHO VOTED CLINTON – Glenn Minnis  (DIERSEN: What about the adverse actions a) that my Democrat GAO superiors took against me including forcing me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, not promoting me beyond GS-13, keeping me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forcing me to take an $18,459 pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980, b) that my Democrat IRS superiors took against me including not promoting me beyond GS-12, disallowing my education deductions, and disallowing my partial day per diem claims, and c) that my Democrat Post Office superiors took against me including forcing me resign in 1969 and disallowing my sick leave requests?)
http://www.inquisitr.com/3905947/president-trump-adviser-newt-gingrich-thinks-he-should-fire-all-federal-employees-who-voted-clinton/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Salon reports the plan is part of empowered Republicans overall push to purge thousands of jobs from the payrolls of the federal government at a savings of as much as $10.5 trillion over the next decade. In all, the government could be hit with budget cuts of as much as 10 percent and the federal workforce could be slashed by up to 20 percent over that same period. The plan is said to be the blueprint of the ultra-conservative Republican think tank Heritage Foundation, which has long been on record with its preference for doing away with nearly all of the government’s discretionary spending. In Gingrich’s mind, there’s really only one approach to take when faced with such a critical undertaking. “All those bureaucrats overwhelmingly voted for Clinton,” he said, while admitting the prospect of mass firings could lead to sabotage and a lack of cooperation from workers toward new, incoming cabinet bosses. “There won’t be any real cooperation until we change federal law so we can fire them,” he added. Currently, African-Americans account for roughly one in five of all government employees, a ratio that completely dwarfs their overall population size of just 13 percent. It seems a safe assumption that those figures aren’t lost on Gingrich, who would also seem to be well aware that African Americans have in recent history overwhelmingly voted democratically. “I would say by one week after the inaugural, it will be very interesting to look at how many things have changed,” he recently told a group of supporters convened for a Heritage Foundation event, where he also predicted the laws of “Trumpism,” will soon predict a balanced budget based on policy as much as active campaigning. Gingrich also recently penned an open letter where he advocated for the dismantling of the Congressional Budget Office that provides budget and economic data to members of Congress. “The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is simply incompatible with the Trump era,” he wrote. “It is a left-wing, corrupt, bureaucratic defender of big government and liberalism.” He later added what the office stands for runs counter to and “is the opposite of [Trump’s] commitments” to Make America Great Again. Gingrich’s current stance is far different from the one he took during the era of President Bill Clinton, when as House Speaker he and fellow Republicans saluted the agency after its analysis found that the then president’s push for a health care plan would swell the deficit. More recently, CBO officials concluded that if the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, were to be gutted as Republicans have made it a signature vow of doing, the number of uninsured Americans would increase by 18 million in the first year and premiums could skyrocket by up to 25 percent over that same time. Gingrich recently characterized those findings as not only wrong but somehow clearly corrupt. “CBO literally brought in the architect of Obamacare to be the adviser on scoring the very Obamacare legislation that he helped write,” he ranted. “The score was a lie. It was so wrong it was totally indefensible. A year later the CBO produced a new score that was so much more expensive that it was clear Obamacare would have been defeated if it had been the original score.” Overall, the federal government’s workforce is comprised of at least 4 million workers, some 300,000 of them located in D.C. along.)

— Agencies asked to come up with solutions to tackle low Hispanic employment – Nicole Ogrysko  (DIERSEN: The obvious Democrat solution is to even more aggressively get rid of federal employees who are not Hispanic.)
http://federalnewsradio.com/workforce/2017/01/agencies-asked-come-solutions-tackle-low-hispanic-employment/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: After six consecutive years of modest increases in Hispanic representation in the federal workforce, the Office of Personnel Management wants each agency to examine why. “In light of persistent low representation,” OPM is asking each agency to conduct a focused barrier analysis on Hispanic employment. Specifically, agencies should focus on employment at the GS-12 through Senior Executive Service levels to “identify and eradicate any barriers to equal employment opportunity, consistent with the merit system principles and applicable laws,” acting OPM Director Beth Cobert and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Chair Jenny Yang wrote in a Jan. 18 memo. The memo has been in the works for more than a year, when the Hispanic Council on Federal Employment voted to begin looking at the issue in more detail.)
