Before he actually took office, President-elect Donald J. Trump was very likely under no illusions about the opposition to his policies and views he would face from a sea of Left-wing careerist federal bureaucrats.
So it isn’t a big surprise that these careerists would take every opportunity to trip up the president and stall his agenda, such as going to lengths in order to hide their personal agendas. As reported by The Daily Caller News Foundation, some employees at the Department of Energy even went so far as to ‘hack’ their own internal documents so they could hide their climate-change agenda from the incoming president, who has expressed, correctly, his disbelief in the entire issue.

The website noted:
Department of Energy employees have been scrubbing any reference to “climate change” from internal documents to keep the Trump administration from putting projects on the chopping block.
In an interview with the podcast “This American Life,” one Energy employee admitted that she and others had started “going through all their internal documents that describe ongoing projects and just scrubbing them, deleting the parts where it says ‘and here’s how this can help us combat climate change,’” according to show producer David Kestenbaum.
Trump has been a vocal opponent of the so-called “settled science” of global warming/climate change. In recent days his former transition team member for the Environmental Protection Agency, Myron Ebell, said that the president would “definitely” pull the United States out of the Paris climate accords, which President Obama latched onto but which were never officially ratified as a treaty in the Senate. Trump, like those on his team, understand that global warming is nothing more than an elaborate hoax, complete with faked data and years of false, hysterical claims of the world coming to a flaming end.
Trump, rather, sees this issue as more of a religion, but one that is crippling U.S. economic growth and opportunities for millions of Americans (and others overseas). And he’s not alone in that assessment.
“Global climate alarmism has been costly to society, and it has the potential to be vastly more costly. It has also been damaging to science, as scientists adjust both data and even theory to accommodate politically correct positions,” Dr. Richard Lindzen of MIT wrote in the fall 2013 issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. He, like others, knows that governments have falsified science for centuries in order to pursue political agendas.
And the fact that government workers are now scrubbing data files to hide the global warming agenda behind programs is proof that they will do anything to ensure the American taxpayer continues pouring good money after bad. (RELATED: Discover how ‘they’ have tried to fool us today at Hoax.news)
The previously mentioned DOE employee, who chose to use the fake name Laura, appeared on the podcast which aired on Jan. 20, Trump’s inauguration day, however, there have been a series of news reports in the days since that the Trump administration was removing “climate change” information from the Whitehouse.gov website while putting all federally-funded scientists on a “lockdown,” The DCNF reported.
In her interview with Kestenbaum, Laura said she had no problems altering the DOE’s documents because “as long as it’s getting done it doesn’t matter what we call it”—meaning, as long as the programs go on then that’s all that matters.
Another federal worker under the pseudonym of Karen said that there will be careerists within the bureaucracy working to slow Trump down.
“Withholding information is one way you slow things down,” Karen said. “The bureaucracy is large, there’s a lot of paperwork, a lot of steps, and people that have been in government a long time understand those steps really well. So, some of those tactics may be used to make things go a lot slower.”
Yes, the bureaucracy is large, but Trump just took a major step to reduce it, meaning by the time he leaves office there will be far fewer impediments to his agenda.
