The Obama administration is attempting to hamstring the successor Trump administration by hiring large numbers of new staff, and promoting existing employees before it leaves office.  Lisa Rein and Juliet Eilperin report in the Washington Post:

 >Several federal agencies are accelerating hiring in the final days of the Obama administration to ensure that as many new employees as possible are in place before President-elect Donald Trump imposes a promised hiring freeze.

Leaders at these agencies are filling open positions with transfers and outside hires and are making internal promotions before Trump takes office Jan. 20, according to internal documents and interviews.

It appears that a prior agreement is being flouted:

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

Obama was famous for making up his own definitions of words.  They called it "re-interpretation" or some goofy name like that.

Trump could have a lot of fun with a few "re-interpretations" of his own.

Let it be a lesson on how our government needs to slim down in virtually every department.
It is an old gambit. Increase prices, then offer a discount and have a 'sale'.

It's just another way to 'only' increase by 10% instead of 30%, and then call it a "60% cut".

From the article:  The agencies rushing to bring on new employees include not just Fish and Wildlife but also the Transportation Security Administration, the National Park Service, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and parts of the Agriculture and Labor departments.

Democrats are demanding Team Trump work closely with them.  In a show of magnanimous bipartisanship I therefore offer a few suggestions.

[1] Democrats may submit a list of which agencies they feel should be axed.

[2] Democrats may also submit a list of which industries they wish to be attack in a fashion similar to Operation Chokehold.

Lists should be submitted by January 22nd, after that it will be too late.
