    The Elephant’s Graveyard

    THE REPUBLICANS  ELEPHANT SYMBOL originated during the 1860 campaign

    I AM DISGUSTED WITH THE REPUBLICANS OLD GOP RIGGED ESTABLISHMENT’S ELECTION PROCESS
    —————————

    I watched the 2016 Presidential primary election unfold, 17 candidates down to the election of Trump as the GOP Presidential candidate, on July 19, 2016, BY THE POPULIST VOTE….  IN SPITE OF THE GOP ESTABLISHMENT’S RIGGED ELECTION PROCESS

    AS A TRUMP SUPPORTER, I AM DISGUSTED,

    I asked Google a sarcastic question.

    WHERE DO OLD ELEPHANTS GO TO DIE?

    THE ELEPHANTS GRAVEYARD

    IT IS THOUGHT TO BE THE RETREAT OF OLD AND DYING ELEPHANTS, OLDER ELEPHANTS INSTINCTIVELY DIRECT THEMSELVES WHEN THEY REACH A CERTAIN AGESO THAT THEY DIE AWAY FROM THE HERD,

    NOT HINDERING THE PROGRESS OF THOSE THAT REMAIN “IN FRONT”.

    ——————————————————————————

    I watched as promises were broken by the GOP Republican establishment POLITICIANS as they failed to endorse the elected people’s choice candidate. Including a friend that persisted with negative email comments.

    I sent him the above, and suggested that he go to the  Elephants Graveyard and stop hindering the progress of those that remain behind, with his negative email comments.

    ——————————————————————————-

    AND, I WATCHED  AND I LISTENED TO THE LATEST GOP ESTABLISHMENT’S FIFTY PROMINENT REPUBLICAN FOREIGN POLICY AND NATIONAL SECURITY EXPERTS PUBLIC MEDIA OPPOSITION TO TRUMP…INCLUDING KASICH .

    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH I HAVE POSTED THIS MESSAGE TO “ALL OF THOSE TRUMP NAY SAYERS” ON MY WEBSITE

    YOU HAVE  REACHED A CERTAIN AGE, PLEASE INSTINCTIVELY DIRECT YOURSELVES TO GO TO THE ELEPHANTS GRAVEYARD, DIE AWAY FROM THE GOP HERD AND STOP HINDERING THE PROGRESS OF THE GOP REPUBLICAN THAT REMAINS IN FRONT.(by populace vote)

    Elephant Graveyard – Elephants Forever

    TRUMP SUPPORTERS HAVE “HAD IT”  WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT’S  DIE HARD GOP’S PUBLIC MEDIA FRENZY, SELF INFLICTED  SUICIDAL MISSION, TO THEMSELVES AS GOP POLITICIANS AND TO THE  LOSS OF THE  GOP REPUBLICAN PARTY IN THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

    POLITICALLY CORRECT OR NOT

    WINNERS ARE NOT LOSERS

    PATTON SAID, LEAD ME, FOLLOW OR GET THE HELL OUT OF MY WAY!

    His vigor was always infectious, his wit barbed, his conversation a mixture of obscenity and good humor. He was at once stimulating and overbearing. George was a magnificent soldier.

    He was tough. War is tough. Leaders have to be tough.

    If you’re a leader, you don’t push wet spaghetti, you pull it.

    You know me…

    research, document, document, document… HISTORY is good.

    AN IMAGE OF AN ELEPHANT WAS FEATURED AS A REPUBLICAN SYMBOL IN AT LEAST ONE POLITICAL CARTOON AND A NEWSPAPER ILLUSTRATION DURING THE CIVIL WAR

    WHEN “SEEING THE ELEPHANT” WAS AN EXPRESSION USED BY SOLDIERS TO MEAN EXPERIENCING COMBAT.

    ———————————————————–

    Many VETERANS of George W. Bush’s administration, Fifty (50) GOP prominent Republican foreign policy and national security experts, oppose Donald Trump.

    ———————————————————————————-

    POLITICAL CARTOONS? MANY A REAL TRUTH IS SPOKEN IN JEST.

    Old silly me, I thought the republican symbol of the elephant was  created by the genius of the GOP.

    THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WAS FORMED IN 1854

    TWENTY YEARS LATER 1874  THE ELEPHANT WAS STILL A GOP POLITICAL CARTOON

    IN AN 1874 HARPER’S WEEKLY CARTOON. an elephant labeled “THE REPUBLICAN VOTE,” which was shown standing at the edge of a pit, Thomas Nast who’s considered the father of the modern political cartoon employed the elephant to represent Republicans in additional cartoons during the 1870s, and by 1880 other cartoonists were using the creature to symbolize the party. 

    An 1879 cartoon (pictured) showed a politician grabbing a donkey LABELED “DEMOCRATIC PARTY” by the tail to keep it from falling into a pit of “financial chaos.”

    And in fact THE UNCLE SAM AMERICAN’S KNOW, STARTED AS A POLITICAL CARTOON BY Thomas Nast

    ——————————————————

    Jul 27, 2016 – The Republican Party is one of the two major contemporary political parties … Donald Trump became the Republican presidential nominee on July 19, 2016. … the GOP’s ELEPHANT SYMBOL originated during the 1860 campaign

    History

    Jul 7, 2015 –   THE REPUBLICAN PARTY’S ELEPHANT and THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S DONKEY have been on the political scene since the 19th century. The origins of the DEMOCRATIC DONKEY can be traced to the 1828 presidential campaign of Andrew Jackson. DURING THAT RACE, OPPONENTS OF JACKSON CALLED HIM A JACKASS.

    WHAT ARE OUR AMERICAN KIDS BEING TAUGHT IN PUBLIC SCHOOL?

    THIS IS A MAJOR CONCERN TO ALL PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS.

    with a header SELECTING THE NEXT PRESIDENT?

    NOT ELECTING THE NEXT PRESIDENT

    Why Nast chose the donkey and the elephant is a pretty complicated story.

    Although Nast’s original interpretation used the donkey to stand in for a Democrat-leaning newspaper scaring away Republican voters,

    his cartoon showing a duplicitous donkey attacking a weak-minded elephant,

    became a handy symbol for other cartoonists wanting to represent Democrats attacking Republicans.

    Popular recognition of the image overrode the party’s own wishes

    Over time, Republicans came to view the elephant emblem as a sign of strength and intelligence, while their opponents portrayed it as a timid and clumsy behemoth. Democrats seized the “jackass” label, and transformed it into a clever and courageous donkey.

    AS IS STILL TRUE TODAY, IT’S ALL IN THE SPIN!

    Elephant Graveyard – Elephants Forever

    www.elephantsforever.co.za/elephant-graveyard.html

    Elephant Graveyard. The existence of a mass graveyard to which elephants go to die remains a myth. IT IS THOUGHT TO BE THE RETREAT OF OLD AND DYING ELEPHANTS,SO THAT THEY DIE AWAY FROM THE HERD, NOT HINDERING THE PROGRESS OF THOSE THAT REMAIN BEHIND.

    An elephants’ graveyard is a place where, according to legend, OLDER ELEPHANTS INSTINCTIVELY DIRECT THEMSELVES WHEN THEY REACH A CERTAIN AGE. THEY THEN DIE THERE ALONE, FAR FROM THE GROUP.

    AWAY FROM THE HERD, NOT HINDERING THE PROGRESS OF THOSE THAT REMAIN BEHIND.

    ———————————————————————-

    Is  Google answer, a coincidence of political symbolic importance, a myth  a legend or an oxymoron? All of the above?

    Whatever  Elephant Graveyard – Elephants Forever is, for the purpose of this comment, I’m going with a type of  analogy, A simile – A comparison between two things that are not alike and replaces the word with another word AND uses the word “like” or “as.”

    LIKE AN ELEPHANT,  AS AN REPUBLICAN

    AS A REPUBLICAN, LIKE AN ELEPHANT

    —————————————————————————–

    Hmmm…. perhaps I should add?

    Metaphor, figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable.

    And,  mixed metaphor,a combination of two or more incompatible metaphors, which produces a ridiculous effect

    With documented  facts about the Republican (GOP) thrown in

    What ever this comment is….

    Provided by the U.S. Dept. Of State

    Full Report

    This is the current report as provided to President Trump, his appointed and the full congress, by the Dept. of State  It is a 407 page document

    Country Reports on Terrorism 2015 (PDF)

    Country Reports on Terrorism 2015 is submitted in compliance with Title 22 of the United States Code, Section 2656f (the “Act”), which requires the Department of State to provide to Congress a full and complete annual report on terrorism for those countries and groups meeting the criteria of the Act.

    IT IS TERRORIST GROUPS–AND THEIR ACTIONS–THAT ARE THE FOCUS OF THIS REPORT.

    THE FOCUS OF THIS POSTING ON MY WEBSITE IS Foreign Terrorist Organizations

    STARTING WITH CHAPTER SIX, PAGE 349/407

    Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO)

    DESIGNATIONS OF FOREIGN TERRORIST GROUPS EXPOSE AND ISOLATE THESE ORGANIZATIONS, DENY THEM ACCESS TO THE U.S. FINANCIAL SYSTEM, AND CREATE SIGNIFICANT CRIMINAL AND IMMIGRATION CONSEQUENCES FOR THEIR MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS. MOREOVER, DESIGNATIONS CAN ASSIST OR COMPLEMENT THE LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS OF OTHER U.S. AGENCIES AND OTHER GOVERNMENTS.

    3.The organization’s terrorist activity or terrorism must threaten the security of U.S. nationals or the national security (national defense, foreign relations, or the economic interests) of the United States.

    Foreign Terrorist Organizations AKA

    PRESIDENT TRUMP’S TEMPORARY TRAVEL BAN WAS  TO “PROVIDE” TIME TO REVIEW AND IDENTIFY  TERRORIST THREATS FROM SEVEN COUNTRY’S, PREVENTING  IMPROPERLY VETTED ALIENS FROM ENTERING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THAT POSED A THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY.

    THE TRUTH IS “ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES”

    PRESIDENT TRUMP IS THE NEW SHERIFF IN WA DC.

    HE HAS DELEGATED HIS AUTHORITY TO AMERICAN LAW ENFORCEMENT TO ARREST RIOTERS.

    (Obama’s Ferguson riotjustice is out)

    President Trump’s justice was enforced on Jan 20,2017

    According to interim D.C. police Chief Peter Newsham.

    The 217 people arrested during a clash Friday morning were all charged with RIOTING

    217 RIOTERS WERE ARRESTED AND TAKEN TO JAIL.

    RIOTERS threw bricks at law enforcement.

    THE RIOTERS INJURED AT LEAST SIX POLICE OFFICERS DURING THE SKIRMISHES, THREE WHEN THEY WERE STRUCK IN THE HEAD WITH PROJECTILES.

    Police said the “RIOTERS”came armed with hammers and crowbars and smashed the windows of several banks and chain restaurants, later dragging trash cans and newspaper boxes into the middle of the street and lighting refuse and even a limousine on fire.

    Many of the protesters, “RIOTERS”  engaged in violence exhibited black bloc-style tactics, donning masks to hide their identities and wearing all black clothing.

    1. A Bill for the More General Diffusion of Knowledge, 18 …

    As part of his work in revising the laws of Virginia during the late 1770s and early 1780s, Thomas Jefferson put forth a bill that has become one of his most enduring works on the subject of education: Bill 79, “A Bill for the More General Diffusion of Knowledge.” Its oft-quoted preamble reads as follows:

    ————————
    Whereas it appeareth that however certain forms of government are better calculated than others to protect individuals in the free exercise of their natural rights, and are at the same time themselves better guarded against degeneracy, yet experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms,

    those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny;

    AND IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE MOST EFFECTUAL MEANS OF PREVENTING THIS WOULD BE, TO ILLUMINATE, AS FAR AS PRACTICABLE, THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE AT LARGE,

    AND MORE ESPECIALLY TO GIVE THEM KNOWLEDGE OF THOSE FACTS, WHICH HISTORY EXHIBITETH, THAT, POSSESSED THEREBY OF THE EXPERIENCE OF OTHER AGES AND COUNTRIES, THEY MAY BE ENABLED TO KNOW AMBITION UNDER ALL ITS SHAPES, AND PROMPT TO EXERT THEIR NATURAL POWERS TO DEFEAT ITS PURPOSES;

    And whereas it is generally true that that people will be happiest whose laws are best, and are best administered, and that laws will be wisely formed, and honestly administered, in proportion as those who form and administer them are wise and honest; whence it becomes expedient for promoting the publick happiness that those persons, whom nature hath endowed with genius and virtue, should be rendered by liberal education worthy to receive, and able to guard the sacred deposit of the rights and liberties of their fellow citizens, and that they should be called to that charge without regard to wealth, birth or other accidental condition or circumstance; but the indigence of the greater number disabling them from so educating, at their own expence, those of their children whom nature hath fitly formed and disposed to become useful instruments for the public, IT IS BETTER THAT SUCH SHOULD BE SOUGHT FOR AND EDUCATED AT THE COMMON EXPENCE OF ALL, THAN THAT THE HAPPINESS OF ALL SHOULD BE CONFIDED TO THE WEAK OR WICKED:
    ——————————————————————–
    The Bill was presented in the House of Delegates in 1778 and 1780, but was not passed; James Madison presented the bill several more times to the state legislature while Jefferson was serving in Paris as Minister to France. A much-revised version was finally passed into law in 1796 AS AN “ACT TO ESTABLISH PUBLIC SCHOOLS.”

    A $5 billion lawsuit filed by a NON PROFIT  insurer against the Obama administration for a program implemented under Obamacare is raising questions about the use of a fund available for settlements with the government and

    other snippet

    “THE JUDGMENT FUND ” was established in 1956 to relieve Congress of the burden of appropriating money for judgments on a case-by-case basis.

    Initially, the fund had a payment limit of $100,000.

    Since 1977, however, there has been no limit on payment size. Congress has amended the judgment fund numerous times since, according to the testimony of Neal Kinkof, professor of law at Georgia State University.

    Jan 8, 2017 Whether the GOP Congress can, and should, intervene?

    Good Lord, Mr. Ford…. WHAT THE DEMOCRAT’S U.S. CONGRESS CREATED IN 1977, LET THE REPUBLICAN’S 2017  CONGRESS PUT ASUNDER.

    ———————————————————————————-

    Von Spakovsky, who worked at the Justice Department during President George W. Bush’s administration, specifically warned of the White House’s history of “SUE AND SETTLE CASES,” which he said allows parties to circumvent federal statutes and regulations and receive large sums of money through settlements with the government.

     Jeffery Axelrad from George Washington University said in written testimony that the identity of fund recipients is not available when judgment fund statistics are compiled.
         “Likewise, the amount paid to attorneys and the identity of the attorneys is not currently available,” he added. “This information is central to knowing whether THE JUDGMENT FUND is, or is not, being abused.”

    A $5 billion lawsuit filed by a nonprofit insurer against the Obama administration for a program implemented under Obamacare is raising questions about the use of a fund available for settlements with the government and whether Congress can, and should, intervene.

    The $5 billion it’s seeking, the money would come from THE JUDGMENT FUND an indefinite appropriation created by Congress and administered by the Department of Treasury.

    ——————————————————–

    April 12, 2012 The federal government will pay more than $1 billion to settle a series of lawsuits brought by American Indian tribes over mismanagement of tribal money and trust lands, under a settlement announced Wednesday.

    MONEY FOR THE TRIBES’ SETTLEMENTS ALREADY HAS BEEN APPROPRIATED UNDER A CONGRESSIONALLY APPROVED JUDGMENT FUND

    Negotiations continue on dozens of other cases.

    An appeals court this week upheld a $3.4 billion class action lawsuit settlement concerning the mismanagement of government trust funds for hundreds of thousands of Native Americans, ruling that it was fair, reasonable and adequate.

    The Cobell v. Salazar settlement is one of the largest class actions ever filed against the United States, and accused the federal government of mismanaging money owed to Native Americans under trust funds. The alleged mismanagement dated as far back as the 1880s.

    “They’re getting political friends to sue them and settle without going to Congress,” he said.

    A $5 billion lawsuit filed by a nonprofit insurer against the Obama administration for a program implemented under Obamacare is raising questions about the use of a fund available for settlements with the government and whether Congress can, and should, intervene.

    According to legal experts, if the Obama administration decided to settle its class action lawsuit with Health Republic Insurance of Oregon, one of 23 co-ops started under Obamacare, and other insurers for all or part of the $5 billion it’s seeking, the money would come from THE JUDGMENT FUND an indefinite appropriation created by Congress and administered by the Department of Treasury.

    Health Republic Insurance of Oregon’s lawsuit was filed on behalf of insurers participating in Obamacare’s risk corridor program, and specifically those who did not receive the full amount of money requested through it.

    “In this case, the argument is the statute requires the government to pay out for the risk corridors, but Congress refused to appropriate the money to do that and therefore the court is going to have to award a judgment since the administration, under the direction of Congress, is violating the law,” Timothy Jost, a law professor at Washington and Lee University School of Law, told The Daily Signal of the lawsuit.

    “And therefore the money has to come out of THE JUDGMENT FUND that the Court of Claims has to award a judgment against the federal government, which is appropriated money,” he continued.

    The Obama administration’s use of THE JUDGMENT FUND has come under fire in recent years, particularly after it was reported the Justice Department used the fund to pay billions to farmers who alleged discrimination by the Department of Agriculture, circumventing Congress.

    (Really? Just asking, using THE JUDGMENT FUND to settle discrimination lawsuits from black, Native American, Hispanic and female farmers is a valid use of the fund. )

    “The Obama administration has a history of using THE JUDGMENT FUND,” Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Signal. “They cannot be trusted to properly defend the lawsuit.”

    Von Spakovsky, who worked at the Justice Department during President George W. Bush’s administration, specifically warned of the White House’s history of “SUE AND SETTLE CASES,”” which he said allows parties to circumvent federal statutes and regulations and receive large sums of money through settlements with the government.

    “They’re getting political friends to sue them and settle without going to Congress,” he said.

    A spokeswoman for the Justice Department said the agency is reviewing the complaint, but had no further comment.

    Reported Sep 8, 2016 Iran Settlement

    The $1.3 billion came from a fund administered by the Treasury Department for settling litigation claims. THE JUDGMENT FUND IS TAXPAYER MONEY THAT CONGRESS HAS PERMANENTLY APPROVED IN THE EVENT IT’S NEEDED, ALLOWING THE PRESIDENT TO BYPASS DIRECT CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL TO MAKE A SETTLEMENT. The U.S. previously paid out $278 million in Iran-related claims by using the fund in 1991.

    HOW DOES THE JUDGMENT FUND OPERATE TODAY?

    BY DEFINITION, IT REQUIRES NO FURTHER CONGRESSIONAL ACTION AND DOES NOT EXPIRE AT THE CLOSE OF ANY FISCAL YEAR.

    THE APPROPRIATION MAKES AN “UNLIMITED AMOUNT OF FUNDS” AVAILABLE FOR PAYMENT OF CERTAIN JUDGMENTS AGAINST THE UNITED STATES.

    NEGOTIATED AND AGREED TO BY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.

    • 4 days ago – January 3, 2017

    The House on Tuesday approved a measure to require the Veterans Affairs Department to permanently note reprimands in employees‘ personnel files, MAKING THE ACCOUNTABILITY MEASURE THE FIRST BILL THE CHAMBER APPROVED IN THE 115TH CONGRESS.

    Federal Employee Accountability Bill Is First Approved by House in New Congress

    • The House on Tuesday approved a measure to require the Veterans Affairs Department to permanently note reprimands in employees’ personnel files, making the accountability measure the first bill the chamber approved in the 115th Congress.
    • The Ensuring VA Accountability Act would mandate that VA keep copies of reprimands and admonishments in the employee’s permanent record for as long as they are working for the department. Currently, “admonishments” remain in employees’ records for two years and “reprimands” for three.
    • “The artificial limitations make it difficult for VA managers to properly review employee performance and obtain an accurate picture of their work history,” the Republican Policy Committee said.

    • The prioritization as the first bill in the new session of Congress — following only a resolution to set the House rules for the 115th Congress — could signal VA and federal employee accountability will be a key area of focus over the next two years.
    • Congressional Republicans have fought since 2014 to make it easier to fire VA employees and restrict their bonuses, though many of their efforts were blocked by their Democratic colleagues or President Obama. President-elect Donald Trump spoke throughout his campaign of the need for VA reform and as part of his official platform promised to bring more accountability to VA senior executives.
    • “I think that’s a good sign,” Dan Caldwell, vice president of policy for Concerned Veterans for America, a conservative group that backs increased accountability measures, said of Tuesday’s vote. He added Congress would need to pursue “much deeper” reforms to “really make a difference.”
    • Previous efforts to ease the discipline of VA’s Senior Executive Service members, implemented after the 2014 Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act, stalled when the Obama administration declined to defend the provision in federal court.
    • Later in the 115th Congress’ first week, the House will consider a series of bills aimed at providing more oversight of federal agencies. The Taxpayers’ Right to Know Act would require the Office of Management and Budget to post online information related to “the cost and performance” of federal programs that exceed $1 million. The House approved the bill in 2015, but it stalled in the Senate. It will also vote on a measure that would require agencies to give all federal records requested by the Government Accountability Office to the auditing agency, and authorize GAO to bring civil actions against those who fail to comply. The House will also consider Office of Special Counsel reauthorization and a bill to bring more transparency to federal advisory committees.
    • Later in the week, the House will vote on the 2017 Midnight Rules Relief Act, which would allow Congress to nix en bloc regulations finalized by agencies within 60 legislative days of the end of a presidential term. It will also consider the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, which Republicans have pushed for years and would require congressional approval of rules and regulations that would produce an impact on the economy of more than $100 million.

     VA IG Confirms Worst Fears: 300000 Vets Really Did Die While …

    Sep 3, 2015 – Pedestrians walk past the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) headquarters in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Friday, May 10, 2013.

    AND NOT A SINGLE GOVERNMENT PUBLIC SERVANT AT THE VA WAS FIRED.

    ACCORDING TO THE APRIL 22, 2015  NEW YORK TIMESTHE ACTUAL NUMBER IS: ZERO.

    As the Times recalls, soon after the “Sixty heads rolled!” headlines were written, the Department of Veterans Affairs backpedaled and said that only 14 people had actually been removed.

    THAT WAS A LIE, TOO.

    AS SO OFTEN IN THE OBAMA YEARS, IT FELL TO A COMMITTEE OF CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS TO FLOG THE TRUTH OUT OF THE ADMINISTRATION, AND IT TOOK MONTHS OF EFFORT:

    The documents given this month to the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, which provided them to The New York Times, show

    THAT THE DEPARTMENT PUNISHED A TOTAL OF EIGHT OF ITS 280,000 EMPLOYEES FOR INVOLVEMENT IN THE SCANDAL.

    One was fired, one retired in lieu of termination, one’s termination is pending, and five were reprimanded or suspended for up to two months.

    The only person fired was the director of the Phoenix hospital, Sharon Helman, who technically was removed not for her role in the manipulation of waiting lists but for receiving “inappropriate gifts,” according to the department.

    In a statement released Wednesday night, the department did not dispute the numbers released by the committee, but said that more than 100 other employees were facing disciplinary action.

    The Untouchables SES Senior Executives

    Posted on November 14, 2016 4:29 pm by Pearl Rains Hewett Comment

    THERE IS NO PLACE IN THE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S GOVERNMENT AGENDA FOR THIS BEHIND OUR BACKS, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS UNTOUCHABLE, UNFIREABLE,  7000 SES SENIOR EXECUTIVES, A CORRUPT, LAYER OF POWER AND GREED IN THE VETERAN’S ADMINISTRATION OR ANY OTHER BRANCH OF THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT.

    WHICH IMPAIRS THE PRESIDENT’S ABILITY TO SUPERVISE THE EXECUTION OF THE FEDERAL CIVIL SERVICE LAWS

     “SECTION 707 THUS VESTS A FEDERAL EMPLOYEE WITH THE FINAL AUTHORITY —

    UNREVIEWABLE BY ANY POLITICALLY ACCOUNTABLE OFFICER OF THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH

     to determine whether to uphold the removal of a [Department of Veterans Affairs],

    WHICH INCLUDES THE POWER TO OVERRULE THE DECISION OF A CABINET-LEVEL OFFICER,”

    SOMETHING WENT BLATANTLY AMOK IN THE US GOVERNMENT CIVIL SERVICE BETWEEN 1883-2016.

    HOW DID THE U.S. GOVERNMENT END UP  WITH 7000 (SES) UNFIREABLE UNTOUCHABLES CIVIL SERVICE EMPLOYEES CHARGED WITH LEADING THE CONTINUING TRANSFORMATION OF OUR GOVERNMENT?
