Opinion | I Am A Part of Resisting the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration

Published

on

Big League Politics today is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers.


President Trump is facing a test unlike any leader in modern American history.

Wednesday, an enemy of the American people within the administration conspired with a tabloid newspaper that covers President Trump with a psychopathic level of deranged bias, resorting to the publication of an anonymous op-ed to smear the President.

I would know – I’m a member of the resistance resistance (we call it resistance²), resisting the resistance from within.

I surreptitiously watched the treasonous actor as he hastily threw on his garments after a mid-day romp with his newspaper pal. In exchange for the good time, he was promised him a platform to tell his story. This is a common practice in D.C. Only students from the finest journalism schools in America are taught the renowned “sleep-with-your-source” method.

The root of the problem is the anonymous author’s amorality. Anyone who has worked with him knows that he is not moored by any discernible principles. The author is in complete contrast to President Trump, who is grounded by America First principles, including building a wall, stopping rogue communist nations from ripping us off through globalist trade deals, lower taxes, and peace in the Middle East and Korean peninsula.

But the author’s erratic behavior would be more concerning if not for the unsung heroes like me, in and around the White House. We will do what we can to eradicate these bad actors until – one way or another – they are all gone.

After Wednesday’s sedition, Trump was infuriated.

But I did my duty on behalf of the 63 million Americans who – tired of being subverted by political grandstanders who are out of touch with the ordinary American at best, and harbor disdain for them at worst – voted for an outsider to clean this place up in 2016.

In service to God and country, I fired him.

He has lost his job – added to the list of corrupt anti-Trumpers who have been expelled from Washington, never to return to wreak their havoc on the American people.

There is a quiet resistance resisting the resistance, standing with President Trump, choosing to put the country first. But the real difference is made by normal citizens, rising above progressive politics, wrecking liberals with hilarious memes on Twitter, donning “Bill Clinton is a Rapist” t-shirts and wandering the streets, boycotting anti-Trump companies like Nike, Starbucks, Uber, Pepsi, Nabisco, Netflix, Lyft, Nordstrom among countless others, and reaching across the aisle – shedding partisan labels in the understanding that a global cabal of ultra-wealthy elites in politics, business, Hollywood and academia has infiltrated both parties – in favor of a single label: American.


This piece is obviously satire, meant to highlight the ridiculousness of the apparently new “journalistic standard” of  publishing anonymous op-eds.

Swamp Bureaucrats Try to Oust America First USAID appointee

Disgruntled bureaucrats.

Published

on

Bureaucrats at a division of the U.S. Agency for International Development that focuses on conflict prevention are fuming about their new boss.

In fact, they’re so angry that they drafted a lengthy memo detailing their grievances with the aim of getting the Trump administration to take action on their behalf, according to a report by Politico.

The disgruntled officials’ 13-page memo singles out Pete Marocco, the head of USAID’s Bureau for Conflict Prevention and Stabilization.

A USAID official stated that a small group of veteran staffers drafted the memo in the bureau’s Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI). Marocco has voiced his skepticism towards a lot of programs this division runs, which is in line with the America First reluctance of embracing foreign aid programs.

The memo portrays Marocco as a micromanager who has thrown several wrenches into the bureau’s operations. In addition, the memo accuses Marocco of marginalizing employees and being vague about his orders that are allegedly difficult to implement. According to the complaint, “thousands of hours of staff time” have been “spent unnecessarily and unproductively.”

Furthermore, the complaint alleged that Marocco “has leveraged once-routine administrative processes to reopen previously-approved plans, interrogate and redirect country programs, halt movement on programs, procurements, and people, and inject uncertainty into daily operations and office planning.“ In addition, it contended that Marocco “has eschewed providing direction in writing or through other formal channels, and rarely sent guidance to teams directly implicated. Instead, he has conveyed orders and decisions, sometimes only orally, to individual staff … who then must attempt to relay this information as best they can to colleagues. This has inevitably generated significant confusion over intent and expectations, and made it difficult to confirm decisions or maintain adequate records.”

One of the more unheralded aspects of President Donald Trump’s ascendancy into the White House has been his skepticism towards the efficacy of foreign aid, which has traditionally been plagued with corruption. According to the Brookings Institute, the U.S. government spent roughly $39.2 billion on foreign aid in 2019, with very little results to show for it.

Overall, officials like Marcocco were appointed with the task of re-orienting USAID’s priorities, which ruffled many feathers.

For example, Marocco was against a $2 million extension of an OTI program in Ukraine that senior USAID and State Department officials werenin favor of. The proposal to extend the program has been sitting on Marocco’s desk waiting for the greenlight since he assumed the position in July, according to the complaint. On two occasions he has called for canceling this program and made a request to find out how much the cancellation process would cost. Politco reported that Marocco “hasn’t said what he would want to do instead with the money besides “do something ‘important’ like train and equip the military or police, or work on security sector reform,” according to the memo, which notes that the first suggestion is prohibited by law, while the second is not a USAID priority in Ukraine.”

It’s clear that Marocco is no swamp creature and does not believe in just doling out money to corrupt countries. An America First foreign aid policy would be one of minimal to no foreign aid, and people like Marocco make it easier for us to achieve that goal.
