    The United States will remove most diplomatic staff from its embassy in Cuba as part of a major withdrawal of personnel following mysterious ‘sonic’ attacks, it was reported on Thursday. The Trump administration decided to undertake preparations for a large-scale withdrawal after Washington did not come away convinced that the Cuban government was doing everything it could to protect American diplomats in Havana, CBS News reported. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met this week with his Cuban counterpart, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez at the State Department in Washington. The meeting apparently did little to sway the administration from its original...

    President Trump needs to fire some of his staff. They are doing him and the country a disservice. President Trump has made excellent appointments for his cabinet and Supreme Court. However, the same cannot be said about his staff. He has a staff infection. Some of his staff members need to be fired. They are incompetent and / or yes men. They undermine him. They make him look bad. They don't represent him well. Suggestions on those who should be canned: Reince PriebusSean SpicerKellyanne ConwaySteve Bannon (is he still around?)Who else? What say you? Agree? Disagree?

    UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (AP) - Nearly 600 faculty and staff have taken a voluntary retirement package from Penn State University, including more than 400 employees on the main campus. The Centre Daily Times (http://bit.ly/2mvKKvq ) reports 419 main campus employees took the offer, while 168 others did on satellite campuses. Forty-six percent of employees eligible for the early retirement took it, more than the university anticipated. Faculty 62 and older and staff 60 and older were eligible for a year's lump sum pay if they had at least 15 years' service.

    Miami Herald ^ | February 10, 2017 | Anita Kumar
    As President Donald Trump searches for ways to cut costs at the White House, he has set his sights on the first lady’s office. Trump is considering reducing the number of jobs in that office, which has grown to up to 20 employees in recent administrations, according to three people with knowledge of the situation who were not authorized to speak publicly about the deliberations. Anita McBride, who served in the last three Republican White Houses, including as chief of staff to former first lady Laura Bush, said any potential cutbacks might be consistent with the limited number of projects...

    The Governor of New York State hasn’t been indicted for anything yet, but nearly every rock which gets kicked over in Andrew Cuomo’s vicinity seems to reveal more roaches scurrying away from the light. After a pack of his aides and associates were indicted last week by Preet Bharara, the Albany Times Union began digging into the background of some of the state executive branch staff and almost immediately turned up something interesting. One of the indicted individuals, Steven F. Aiello, has a son who is employed by the Governor as a senior policy adviser. The son, Steven L....

    Trump has run a successful campaign thus far and it looks as if he will win the GOP nomination and with a well-run campaign he should win the presidency. Do any Freepers have any inside info on some of the personalities involved in Trump's campaign staff. Corey Lewandowsky has the title of campaign manager but Barry Bennett may be of equal influence. Some of the staffers have TEA Party backgrounds like Katrina Pierson who serves as the campaign's official spokesman. Stuart Jolly is the National Field Director and was involved in something called the Education Freedom Alliance.

    Hillary and Bill Clinton are so dissatisfied with their campaign's messaging and digital operations they are considering staffing and strategy changes after what's expected to be a loss in Tuesday's primary in New Hampshire, according to a half-dozen people with direct knowledge of the situation. The Clintons - stung by her narrow victory in Iowa - had been planning to reassess staffing at the campaign's Brooklyn headquarters after the first four primaries, but the Clintons have become increasingly caustic in their criticism of aides and demanded the reassessment sooner, a source told Politico.

    Dr. Carson, While I did not support you this time around, I liked you. You seemed genuine and up to now, a real Christian. Since December, you have been bleeding staff, most of which left to go to Ted Cruz's campaign. Even the morning of the caucus, several more left. In December, we read that several staffers had complained that your 'friend' Armstrong Williams was listened to more than your paid staff and several missteps had occurred because of that. You apparently still listen and confide in him, hence the misstep just before the caucus Monday night. Since you are...

  • The EPA’s Secret Staff (dictation from green lobbies in possible violation of the law)

    **SNIP** The Energy & Environment Legal Institute has obtained government emails that show the EPA secretly worked with environmental lobbyists to craft its Clean Power Plan regulating greenhouse gases. The emails show this secret alliance designed a standard that would be impossible or economically ruinous for existing coal plants to meet-in order to force their closure. The New York Times first reported that in 2014 environmentalists Dan Lashof, David Doniger and David Hawkins-all with roots at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)-drafted a "blueprint" that "influenced" the greenhouse gas rules. That wasn't the half of it. The emails, obtained through...

    The full details of Friday's clash between residents of the Jewish village of Adei Ad in Samaria and a delegation from the US Consulate in Jerusalem - which very nearly escalated into a fully-fledged shootout between the sides - are still emerging. But those details which have emerged so far paint a worrying picture regarding the conduct of Consulate staff - who either willingly took part in a planned provocation, or else, in a staggering show of irresponsibility and unprofessionalism, recklessly blundered into a volatile and potentially deadly situation without the slightest idea of what they were doing. Roughly two...

    With projections of a GOP win growing daily, nervousness in Senate committee offices has turned to panic as an army of Democratic staffers braces to be fired, replaced by a Republican majority and their aides. The spoils of political war? Estimates are that 300-600 Democratic committee and personal staff jobs would be on the chopping block if the Republicans pull off the expected victory. “There will be a mass exodus of Senate Democrat staff from committees,” said one insider. And Republicans will get to hire hundreds more aides. A loss on Tuesday that keeps the Democrats in charge of the...

    Most employees believe they have no say when it comes to changes in the workplace that directly affect their jobs. Six out of ten corporate staff said they have little or no input in decisions which affect them personally at work, according to a recent survey by Strayer University and Ipsos. Those over 35 felt their opinions mattered less than those workers aged 18-34 - although perhaps that's just a healthy dose of cynicism that comes from spending longer on the corporate ladder.
