Trump has told Federal Employees that they can't talk about their jobs.

Patrick--I would think this would bother you?

He needs to just fire all of Obama's legacy then he wont have the problem of insubordinate Government employees trying to undermine the voters will.

Amanda Marcotte.

How's the crazed stripper doing who claimed she was the Raep by Duke Lacrosse Team? Oh yeah, in prison for stabbing her boyfriend - amid other things like drug possessions. How's Edwards' political career?

Doubling down on the narrative against "Rape Deniers" at UVa:

Just another always wrong Pundit who suffers no penalties for being perpetually wrong, and an SJW, opinion dismissed.

In fact the UVa case is a great example of her tendentious writing. Even after the Rolling Stone blasted it's own reporting, even after it was pretty clear Haven Monaghan didn't exist, she accused others of having an axe to grind "Getting their culture warrior knives out" or some such. She spent weeks fighting off allegations the story wasn't 120% true and 'proved' we have a Raep Culture.

TLL--

Who the fuck cares who wrote the damn article. Do you deny that Trump has stifled the free speech of government workers? EPA workers? National Park workers?

I'm sure it doesn't bother you now because it's your dear leader who is doing it.

Shall I continue? Are you going to try to launch ad hominem attacks on all these authors?

Wait, did you support Obama, who used the Espionage Act more than any President in History, mostly to punish Government Whistleblowers?

I just want to check in so you can point me to where you criticized that.

When the Police Chief doesn't want Cops discussing investigations with the Press, is their Free Speech being horrifically violated?

It's either shut them up or shoot them in the face.

What do you hate niceness?

Yeah, this is just anti-Trump hysterics.

OMG, so chilling! Communication Directors, don't make any major announcements about anything until the Beachhead Team has time to deploy and review policy.

Pretty clear this is aimed at Media People within these agencies, and it's talking about Agency Social media, not individual employee media.
There's nothing stopping Water Quality Researcher II from tweeting "I just saw this great paper from UC Davis on Chloramine Levels" to his personal account.

But, you supported Trump because you said he'd be better than Obama??!?? Where is your criticism as he is turning out to be MUCH worse?

Show me where Trump is firing, disciplining, or charging with crimes National Park employees for Tweeting for "Don't feed the bears" warnings at Yosemite.

Rationalize much? That is pretty damn chilling actually. And it's only going to get worse.

OK, those articles should be coming out in the next few days after the administration has had time to identify and fire the individuals who tried to express their right to free speech and tweet out facts.
