‘Authoritarianism 101’: Trump Plot to Purge Civil Servants If Reelected Draws Alarm

As Axios reported Friday, central to Trump’s plans for a second term is the reinstatement of his executive order known as “Schedule F,” which established a new category of federal employees.

Under the executive order, which Trump signed just days before losing the 2020 election, thousands of federal workers who have served under presidents from both major political parties could be reclassified as “Schedule F” employees, eliminating their employment protections.

Trump could purge as many as 50,000 members of the nonpartisan workforce who he deems to have influence over policy decisions, leaving them with no recourse, and fill their jobs with “loyalists to him and his ‘America First’ ideology,” according to sources who spoke to Axios.

  1. While one of the last things that I want to see is Trump return to the WH (another last thing is Biden remaining in the WH), this move could be seen as a way to get rid of the Deep State, the unelected bureaucrats who stay in power as elected officials come and go. Robert Malone had good things to say about this move.
