Biden Set to Shut Door on Conservatives in Federal Jobs

When working for the government, Joe Biden is no longer content with the tried-and-true question of patriotism: “Are you with or against us?” In a shocking effort to overhaul federal hiring guidelines, the president wants to ask: “Are you with or against me?”

A proposed rule governing federal hiring is, at best, a bad policy promoting left-wing loyalty over competence. At worst, it’s a stepping stone to undermining fair hiring practices and freedom of speech.

In January, the Office of Personnel Management proposed changes to the federal government’s “personnel vetting investigative and adjudicative processes for determining suitability and fitness.” It explains that this refers to “a decision by an agency that an individual does or does not have the required level of character and conduct necessary” for federal employment. The public has until April 3 to file comments on these amendments before the rule is finalized.

Current policy prohibits hiring applicants found to be involved in “knowing and willful engagement” in trying to overthrow the government. The new policy adds interpretive words like “coercion,” “intimidation” and “indoctrination” of others for “unlawful aims.” It would also exclude people with membership in groups with “unlawful aims.”

If this is clear as mud, it’s obviously on purpose. It can mean “toe the party line, or you won’t have a paycheck to sign.”

It’s a leftist trope that words are violence. So, it’s only a matter of time before bureaucrats use the rule to deny employment, justify firing and generally allow the harassment of conservatives in federal jobs.

This harassment isn’t a conspiracy theory. It is knocking at the door. Let’s count how conservatives are canceled today based merely on what they say.

If you say marriage should be between a man and a woman, you can be canceled. If you say schools and libraries shouldn’t host drag shows? Canceled. If you say we shouldn’t lower standards on people based on their race or gender? Canceled. If you say you support the Second Amendment? Canceled. If you say we shouldn’t have pornography in elementary schools? Canceled.

In January, a restaurant owner stopped Project 21 member Gianno Caldwell — a black conservative — from eating his breakfast. Gianno was publicly shunned and kicked out of the restaurant because he dared to openly discuss his political beliefs. In December, a Virginia-based conservative Christian advocacy group was denied service at a restaurant just an hour before their reservation. Why? The restaurant’s employees felt threatened by their pro-life advocacy.

In countless other examples nationwide, leftists are growing bolder in their intolerance. Remember when Rep. Maxine Waters said “they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere” about Trump administration officials? The federal government could end up sanctioning such behavior — throwing water on a grease fire.

With this rule, President Biden would send a chilling effect on political participation. He apparently wants conservatives to be afraid of expressing their political views by harming their employment prospects. He wants conservatives to be afraid to dissent against his policies. He wants conservatives to fear engaging in peaceful political activities or speaking on issues.

Biden wants more power, more control and more dominance.

It is no longer about the diversity of ideas or a healthy democracy. Can you imagine what will happen if federal agencies are staffed primarily by a political echo chamber? It would erode trust in government and the legitimacy of our constitutional republic.

Such an exertion of control may violate federal law and constitutional principles. The Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 prohibits discrimination against federal employees based on political affiliation. Additionally, the First Amendment protects the rights of individuals to express their political views without fear of government retribution. If this rule is approved, it must be challenged in the courts.

Biden’s federal hiring proposal is a direct assault on democracy. Leftists seem determined to stifle free speech, quash ideas and sow a culture of fear and mistrust. If adopted, these vague hiring rules will give leftists the green light to use your taxpayer dollars to discriminate against your interests.

There is still time for the government to reject this dangerous plan. People need to speak up for fair federal employment practices. Societies excel when we promote qualified individuals to roles based on their skills, knowledge and experience — not politics.

Let’s do our best to keep merit-based principles in federal agencies and tell Biden to protect our Constitution and freedom of speech — not his cronies.

The disrespectful and disobedient people against God leads to their unfaithfulness and that is the evil you said. We are in a deep spiritual battle.

Personally, I fully expected the practice of hiring discrimination, based on one’s adherence to the Democrat’s now openly socialist ideology, to be somehow codified in this administration. When Biden ordered the 60 day stand down of our military forces all around the world in 2021, to look for so-called “right wing extremists” (anyone in the military who opted to honor their oath to the Constitution over blind allegiance to General Milley and Secretary Austin) and purge them from their positions, I knew it was only a matter of time before all hiring and continued job retention within the federal government would be subject to what is essentially a party loyalty test. Just like what was found in the old Soviet Union and still exists in the modern day communist controlled Chinese government. At the end of the day, all authoritarian type governments end up imposing the exact same type of screening policies to ensure unwavering control of all aspects of government. Elections have consequences.

Biden and the Democrats are dictators. They don’t give a damn about US citizens, Democrats or Republicans. The US under Biden and the Dems will become a communist-run country. No freedom of speech. It’s 1984 folks.

Sounds like it could back fire and encourage more people to stand up to this blatant road to dictatorship. He acts like a weak parent wanting to control by intimidation and fear. We have nothing to “lose” since we are already nonentities and are cancelled at every turn. So what happened to their ideology of tolerance. I guess those that disagree with them are the intolerant ones. Boy, (can I say that?) socialism is such twisted ideology. I never knew that socialists were soooo discriminatory and intolerant. How do they practice what they preach when they cancel what they don’t like or people who disagree with them. Well, I’ll pray for them anyway.

I’m against you Crazy Joe! I’m against everything you say, think, or do. Your laughing responses to the murder of 3 beautiful children shows you are not only a terrible excuse for a president but a terrible excuse for a human being. But, what can one expect since you are owned and controlled by Satan? The demo/globalist party is completely evil and not capable of any good.

Using their own rules, none of them meet the new qualifications for hire. We really need to bring these socialist / communist party back into check and stop letting them decide everything based on their warped ideology. They are the party of the mentally disturbed, which shows by the increase in everything abnormal, and criminal. Enough is enough! They need to be reigned in!!

Yet the sheeple continue to support the propagandized nation building conflicts our “wonderful” country starts using our chosen foreign country as a proxy against any and all competitor nations.
“We” are not the good guys. “We” haven’t been for a very long time.
Thankfully our ill gotten empire is finally collapsing under the weight of its own perversity and most of us will live to see that collapse

Biden is openly treasonous and unfair. True patriots and traditional Americans are being treated like second-class citizens. Instead of acting like the president of the United States, Biden is promoting division and resentment. Sadly, he reminds me more of a tyrant than a good American. When will the true liberals start standing up against the poisonous words and policies of Biden? Biden isn’t even close to acting like a true liberal. He has morphed into a far left Marxist.

There they go again, destroying America and trashing the Constitution. If the Dem’s can’t get their way, they change the rules and laws to prevent conservatives from exercising their god given rights in this country! America needs to exercise its rights and kick them all out of office. 2024 cannot come soon enough!

Biden is simply too stupid and feeble to be doing any of this. This is coming straight from his commie wife, Jill Biden! She’s the one making most of these decisions in the oval office, not slow-Joe. Slow-Joe is just being run like a marionette! I wonder how many of the democrat voters are content with this un-elected wife running the show.

I left federal service at the end of the 1960s because government hiring was not based on merit. Over recent years patriots and conservatives have been purged from government service, so this is not new but just added methods.

The event was hosted by the Maricopa County Republican Party. Media outlets from all over the country converged in Phoenix to cover this event. Previously, Mr. Trump created a media firestorm with his comments about illegal immigration during his candidacy announcement. Thousands filled the north ballroom of the convention center to see Trump and hear him speak. The event was scheduled to be held at the Arizona Biltmore, but the requests for tickets were so great the event had to be moved to the larger venue. Opponents held a peaceful protest outside the center. Trump s slogan is Make America Great Again.
