Biden continues purge of Trump officials by scrapping dozens of EPA holdovers

They say that personnel is policy, and President Joe Biden is making sure that his staff is on the same page with him as he aggressively reverses Donald Trump’s agenda.

A rolling purge of Trump holdovers in the Biden administration came for dozens of scientists at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Wednesday, the Washington Examiner reported.

Biden fires Trump appointees

Biden has often contrasted himself with Trump, framing his own approach to immigration as more humane and making much of bringing “science” back to the White House.

The Biden administration framed the EPA firings as part of an effort to reset environmental policy on a scientific basis, after it had been allegedly undermined by Trump, who was often accused by critics of spoiling the environment and favoring industry.

According to The Hill, some 40 science advisers were removed from the Science Advisory Board and the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee in what administrator Michael Regan called a “reset” to bring back “scientific integrity.”

“Resetting these two scientific advisory committees will ensure the agency receives the best possible scientific insight to support our work to protect human health and the environment,” EPA Administrator Michael Regan said in a statement, according to the Washington Examiner.

“Today we return to a time-tested, fair, and transparent process for soliciting membership to these critically important advisory bodies,” he added.

Purge-happy Biden gets to work

While framing the purge as benign, Regan was accused by critics of being heavy-handed.

“Michael Regan’s purge of EPA scientists and policy experts who may offer critical thinking in response to the Biden agenda is a complete politicization of science within our federal government,” said James Taylor, of the conservative Heartland Institute, according to The Washington Times.

While presenting himself as a bipartisan figure, Biden has sent shockwaves through Washington with a take-no-prisoners style, even recently threatening to end the filibuster to pass his agenda, NBC News reported.

As Biden confronts a border crisis that critics call self-inflicted, he paired the rapid reversal of Trump’s strict immigration policies with another purge at the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS’s) Advisory Council. Ken Cuccinelli, who served in Trump’s DHS, said the move was typical of Biden’s “Stalinistic” presidency.

“This is a part of a broader pattern and practice by Biden’s administration of being the most Stalinistic in my adult lifetime,” he said, according to Fox News.

  1. Biden has crowned himself king with god like powers, it’s a shame that his handlers allow this game to play out. Even His supporters are starting to think they made a poor decision when they voted for this mentality incapacitated idiot. Biden is walking up the gallows steps all by himself, can’t wait for latch to be pulled, serves this megalomaniac right, will laugh as his feet twitch!

    1. 1984, Saul Alinsky’s Playbook, Obama, anti-white, anti-Christian, anti-1st, 2nd etc Amendments. Happening so fast. Biden’s puppet masters are behind this. We know who they are. Trying to Federalize elections which proves they stole election.

  3. Can’t have a whistleblower in a Biden administration must be sure only communists that will fit in to the swamp to make the FBI and the CIA the DOJ and all the swamp people in Washington look like they are doing there jobs what a communist joke

  4. Biden does not have a clue on what he is doing. Its just what ever President Trump did Biden wants to get rid of despite that it hurts the American people. Biden has to much hate in him, we will never come together. Biden does not want the people to come together., We cant , Biden shows it to us every day.

    1. The citizens need to demand a article 25 on Biden’s mental capacity. And put a stop to democrats lunacies. Everything he has signed from day one. Impeachment of all who lied about his mental health. He don’t even know what he has signed. He sure as hell did not have any idea what he sighed.

  5. Biden is a puppet of the shadow government run by Soros and Obama. Look at the reality of this government which will pave the way for a 1 world government which will soon be run by the anti-christ himself who is waiting in the wings for the ” Great Reset” .

  6. My way, or the Highway, but don’t worry, Biden has lot’s of stimulus money to buy them out. You know where that money originates, but he will need more, stand by Taxpayers.

  7. Biden should pay attention to Russia, Communist China, N. Korea and Iran. Forget about Trump already. What a Bum Joe is.

  8. Unfortunately Little Joe will likely replace all those scientists and thinkers/advisors. If the purge resulted in a reduction in the Federal Workforce or the number of people who believe the federal government should be messing in all the things it messes it, it would be a good thing. Of course, the end product will be the same: policies driven by a senile person with no (zip, zilch, nada) experience in the real world; full of facts and beliefs that just aren’t so. He will go down in history as one of the great destroyers of all time.

  9. You can’t fix stupid! That is why I choose not to listen to anything Biden or any Democrat has to say.

  10. That is his prerogative, but does he have to replace them with totally incompetent people? Can’t he find any qualified people in the Democratic party? Probably not. He himself isn’t qualified so why would he want more qualified people around him to make him look even worse then he does now.
