Keeping Others Awake at Night

Politico reports the Trump administration is cracking down on leakers in the White House, the intelligence agencies and elsewhere in government. Bureaucrats are experiencing paranoia about it. Good.

Deep State members should worry, they've been damned overt in their opposition to their new boss. I don't know what their governmental experiences have been, but in the private sector leaking, if discovered, can get you fired and blackballed; it can basically ruin a good career.

Bureaucrats beware, the new boss is from the private sector and embodies its values. Prior to joining government, his most famous quote was "You're fired!" These are words you don't want to hear, prefaced by your name. Hat tip to Secretary Mattis for the title.
