1/This is a lengthy thread describing in detail the Federal Government Executive Branch Departments & Agencies Reformation & Reorganization Plan (R&R Plan), entitled “Delivering Govt Solutions in the 21st Century.” whitehouse.gov/wp-content/upl…
2/h/t to @ThomasWictor who tweeted about the R&R Plan yesterday as I was still reading it, for highlights he described & particularly for his insight regarding it—& its transformative content—which may in pt be behind the Dem’s escalation/opposition to @POTUS@realDonaldTrump
3/For a thread w/a list of highlights from the R&R Plan, see:
2/“For keeping money unspent, the key agency is the Office/Management &Budget (OMB), &the management officials under OMB in each agency.”
3/“The OMB Director, Mick Mulvaney, is a very savvy veteran of budget issues, &he will have management officials in important agencies who implement his directions. For this approach, the key is sophisticated work in the shadows.” No leaks!
Despite the terrible train wreck en route, Congressional GOP got to their Retreat safely at Greenbrier Resort, coincidentally the site/a massive underground bunker emergency shelter for the US Congress built during the Cold War, code named "Project Greek Island.” #safespace ?
Another interesting coincidence: my mother (see pinned tweet), an army nurse, served at the resort while it was an army hospital during WW2. There she once danced with Gen Eisenhower, &met my dad who was visited his brother who was a patient.
1/It’s time 2 turn our attention 2 Rex Tillerson (TRex) & the Dept/State, as part/my series/threads looking @ the executive depts from the perspective/firings, layoffs, buyouts, & early retirements-all Reductions In Force (RIFs),& how @POTUS is using them 2 reshape the Fedl govt.
2/TRex was confirmed as Secretary/State (SoS) by the Senate on 2/1/17, just a month after retiring early from being CEO/ExxonMobil, one of the largest corporations in the world with revenue near $400B & 80k employees in 200 countries.
3/Much has been made by the lib MSM/Tillerson negotiating w/Putin & other Russians while heading Exxon, but he also had good relations elsewhere in the world, including in the ME, esp w/Saudi Arabia, Qatar, & UAE. We can assume these made him an attractive candidate to @POTUS
Thanks. Plan 2 cont later today, probably drilling down in2 each/the exec branch depts in turn.There’s some interesting stuff happening that is generally ignored by MSM, some w/regard 2 reductions in force + other curious stuff. @POTUS#MakingAmericaGreatAgain#UndertheRadar
1/OK, I’m going to start the next phase/my analysis/the executive departments, reductions in (work)force (henceforth RIF), & other changes being made to #MAGA , largely, I’m convinced, unbeknownst to the Left (Dems, MSM, the coastal elites, etc.).(FYI I may need to break midway).
2/Those tagged R already familiar w/the background info I’ll B covering in the 1st few tweets in this thread, so feel free 2 skip forward 2 the tweet introducing Ben Carson. For others, these preliminary tweets might clarify the Byzantine maze/fedl job titles & lines/authority.
It’s been awhile since I tweeted abt this, but DoD can offer up to $40k, I believe, & there was some movement in congress 2 extend increased max 2 all depts.FEDweek is all over this topic.+I’ve twted bf abt various reductions in force that depts tweet but never mentioned by MSM.
If you search me and retirement there are some tweets back in September about Tillerson cuts then, but I’m trying to think of better search term(s) to find the links.
1/ See cnn.com/2017/04/28/pol… for the administration’s reduction in force plan thru 4/17, with hints thru 1/18. Ignore other MSM snark.
