Patrick Witt worked for the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) under President Trump, and is now running for Congress to rule the deep state, bureaucratic, administrative agencies that have taken over our country.
Witt is running for Congress in the 10th Congressional District of Georgia.
Witt was talking Breitbart news on Saturday leader Matthew Boyle about his work on the OPM under President Trump and everything they did to prevent the spread of critical race theory across the federal government.
“Under President Trump, you know, the message of the swamp drying up. [The OPM is] where the rhetoric met the road. We carried out all the enforcement orders, we were very busy, ”Witt said. “One of those executive orders you mentioned was the EO to eliminate critical racing theory training from our federal agencies.”
Witt praised Christopher Ruf for the investigation journalism he did when he revealed how widespread the critical theory of race was in our federal government, prompting Trump to pass an executive order banning it in federal agencies.
Witt then described in detail how his office handled costly funding requests for training programs that violated Trump’s executive order against the CRT. “I mean, just one agency had more than 1,000 pages of training for unconscious bias, which basically meant that if you’re white, you’re a racist. It was a kind of bias that they wanted to express. “
“So we had to take care of the staff, you know, we had to hire, God, maybe 10 young people to start reading all this material because just the scope of it was huge. And, you know, the spoiler warning, most of these things violated the executive order. “
“And so, it was amazing. We had agencies calling us and saying we needed approval for this seminar we’re preparing, we’ve already built $ 25,000 into this thing, which we can’t cancel now – we’re going to lose money. And we look at the training material and say, “Absolutely not, you know, like a waste of money.”
Witt has pledged to encourage Congress to codify laws banning the use of CRTs in government training. “I’m going to take action in Congress, I’m going to encourage, you know, our club to codify the fact that you can’t train people about it. It is incredibly toxic. And if we want to last even longer as a multiracial democracy, we will put an end to that immediately. “
Boyle pointed out how Witt’s unique experience at OPM will help Witt once he is elected to Congress, as oversight is one of the roles of Congress. “You know, my experience in the executive branch is a bit unique. You know, a lot of legislators are elected. They were already working on Hill, ”Witt said. “But Congress has given up many of our responsibilities and only pushed them into the executive branch.”
Witt pointed out that the actual deep state are the administrative agencies, which are the unelected bureaucrats who run the show behind the curtains. “And it’s really an administrative state, a deep state, call it what you will.”
“Most of the harmful activities and most of the regulations that actually affect people’s lives on a day-to-day basis come from the executive branch, it comes from bureaucrats you can’t turn against. You cannot vote on them. The president can’t fire them either. “Witt said.
Witt further criticized the structure of the administrative state and was disappointed at how difficult it is to fire these career civil servants. “You know, even some of the most democratic bureaucrats will tell you that one of the most frustrating things about working in the federal government is that you can’t fire inefficient employees.”
“You can’t get rid of them. You know, there’s a process that takes about a year, you have to give them you know, a performance plan, document everything, ”Witt said. “And most people just don’t want to take their time, so you can pass them on to the government, transfer them to different agencies, and in the end you have these inappropriate toys that just, you know, rumble through different agencies and the federal government.”
Boyle asked Witt how we actually solve this problem, to which Witt replied with the words, “This is the first step, you need to shed light on it. You need to conduct proper investigations. ”He continued,“ And then Congress must ultimately act with legislation to either definitively in some of these agencies and roles and responsibilities that should not exist in the federal government, or to dramatically reform them. ”
Boyle then commented on how Republicans can learn from the failures of the 2010 midterm cycle to ensure that the 2022 interim mandates are different. He also asked Witt for several ways to defeat the administrative state.
“As I mentioned, you know, Congress needs to start regaining some of its powers under Article 1. Delegation is a huge problem that has allowed the administrative situation to be completely out of control, ”Witt explained. “You know, take immigration, it’s the bureaucrats who have decided that they are, you know, open border politicians, you know, maybe not the general population of the United States, but certainly bureaucrats in Washington, DC.”
“And so they are completely breaking the laws in the books and, you know, they are telling all our law enforcement agencies to step down and allow this crisis to continue. You can’t vote for these people. “Witt doubled the need for congressional oversight and investigation.” So again, if Congress isn’t willing to properly investigate, take action, and ultimately hold these people accountable, Americans lose and have no way to fix the path. “
Witt then discussed how federal law enforcement played a role in strengthening the administrative state and how they should also be governed. “The most damaging part of that, in my opinion, is really the federal law enforcement, the DOJ, the FBI, even our intelligence community.” He continued, “We have seen the power they have and they are led by political activists at the top of these agencies, and we need to know that it may be a reform of church committees for these agencies because the power they have can fight the American public.”
When the interview was over, Boyle Witta asked how the Republican majority in 2022 could make sure they got the job done right. For Witt, the answer is simple: be like President Trump.
“Doing things, actually achieving results, requires hard work and requires you to deal with a lot of, you know, extremely incendiary criticism and consume feedback from the other side. And most Republicans didn’t want to fight that fight. “Witt continued,” Donald Trump was the only person who ever showed up in my life and was willing to accept that coming fire, but that’s why he’s so popular. “
“People want to fight or they want someone to bring results and not excuses. And it hasn’t been a national team for the last 30 years, so you see a lot of Trumpers never show up again. “
Witt stressed that we need people in this fight at the moment, saying, “The window is narrowing. Democrats are trying to completely ruin our elections. They are trying to indoctrinate all our children. “
Witt ended up encouraging voters to support him and other like-minded candidates across the country. “It’s not enough to just vote for a Republican until the general election if you haven’t already chosen the right America First fighter,” Witt said. Breitbart news on Saturday listeners. “No BS person who gets an office and actually demands results like Donald Trump did, then you’ve already lost that person.”
