  • Zinke: One-third of Interior employees not loyal to Trump

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said Monday that nearly one-third of employees at his department are not loyal to him and President Donald Trump, adding that he is working to change the department’s regulatory culture to be more business friendly.

    Zinke, a former Navy SEAL, said he knew when he took over the 70,000-employee department in March that, “I got 30 percent of the crew that’s not loyal to the flag.”

    In a speech to an oil industry group, Zinke compared Interior to a pirate ship that captures “a prized ship at sea and only the captain and the first mate row over” to finish the mission.

    “We do have good people” at Interior, he said, “but the direction has to be clear and you’ve got to hold people accountable.”

    Cool... This means he's fired enough Gorebots to get it down to 30%...

        I'm not sure of Zinke worded that poorly or is serious. I assume the former, which is to mean that a third of Interior employees are Progressive Leftists and out to sabotage the administration rather than do their jobs as government employees.

        I could easily see many in the Interior department more concerned about a Leftist environmental agenda than doing their jobs as required by law and agency policy.

          That's strange, because there was no similar study done under Obama.

            If you take it purely on the numbers, it should be about 40% (being the number of average joes who are Dumocfrats... versus 40% who are Repuglicans....) and around 20% who couldn't make up their mind on a good day. (Typical for Gov't employees!)

            Sounds like he's got himself a deal if only 30% are "not loyal". (.... and where in the hell did THAT requirement come from?)

              There no requirement to be loyal. They work for the government and the POTUS is only one part of it. They nor anybody else doesn't have to swear true faith and allegiance to a person. We don't live in a Nazi Germany like country, yet.

                      Why does anyone expect the bureaucracy to be loyal to the executive department?

                            I've noticed that many authors are now using phrases like, "under Trump's administration" to stick it to him even when the article has nothing to do with anything he has done. Trying to brainwash the already stupid people out there.
