President Trump Fires The Entire Board Of Top Democrat Federal Agency

Published

on

Although President Trump should have disbanded the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) which most people don’t even know exists, he did do something to try and fix it.

He put Nick Mulvaney in charge of the agency.

And to prove his worth, what did Mulvaney do to fix the CFPB? Simple, he fired each and every one of the 25 member team who advises the board. Make the CFPB Great Again!

“Trump should have nixed the rogue CFPB agency last year, but he did the next best thing in putting Mick Mulvaney in charge of it.

Well now Mulvaney has just fired the entire 25 member team that advised the board:

WAPO – Mick Mulvaney, acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, fired the agency’s 25-member advisory board Wednesday, days after some of its members criticized his leadership of the watchdog agency.

The CFPB said it will revamp the Consumer Advisory Board, known as the CAB, in the fall with all new members.

The panel has traditionally played an influential role in advising the CFPB’s leadership on new regulations and policies. But some members, who include prominent consumer advocates, academics and industry executives, began to complain that Mulvaney was ignoring them and making unwise decisions about the agency’s future.

On Monday, 11 CAB members held a news conference and criticized Mulvaney for, among other things, canceling legally required meetings with the group.

On Wednesday, group members were notified that they were being replaced — and that they could not reapply for spots on the new board.

In a statement, the agency’s spokesman, John Czwartacki, took a final swipe at the group. “The outspoken members of the Consumer Advisory Board seem more concerned about protecting their taxpayer funded junkets to Washington, D.C., and being wined and dined by the Bureau than protecting consumers,” he said.

Revamping the board is part of the CFPB’s new approach to reaching out to stakeholders to “increase high quality feedback,” the bureau said in an email to the group. The CFPB will hold more town halls and roundtable discussions, the letter said, and the new CAB will have fewer members.

Of course Democrats are going to try and make hay over this:

“Mick Mulvaney has no intention of putting consumers above financial firms that cheat them. This is what happens when you put someone in charge of an agency they think shouldn’t exist,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who helped conceive of the bureau, said in a statement.

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) said: “Mulvaney has proven once again he would rather cozy up with payday lenders and industry insiders than listen to consumer advocates who want to make sure hard-working Americans are not cheated by financial scams.”

I’m sure the advisory board needed purging, but in all honesty the CFPB needs to be shut down. As Steve Hayes explained last year, the board is a rogue independent agency that has a broad mandate to end “unfair, deceptive, and abusive practices,” all in the name of protecting the consumer. But this could mean anything to anyone. And the board isn’t accountable to Congress which means there’s no appropriate oversight. Which means they can do what they want.

Now I’m glad that Mulvaney is in charge, but what happens when a Democratic administration takes charge again? It’s the same argument I made when the administration didn’t want to repeal the executive regulatory infrastructure that Obamacare put in place.”

That’s right folks, the CFPB will revamp the Consumer Advisory Board, known as the CAB, in the fall with all new members with fresh ideas. The panel was originally set up to play an influential role in advising the CFPB’s leadership on new regulations and policies. But through the years and under the supervision of the Swamp some members who even include prominent consumer advocates, academics, and industry executives, began to complain that Mulvaney was ignoring them and making unwise decisions about the agency’s future.

So on Monday, 11 CAB members held a news conference to criticize Mulvaney for, among other things, canceling legally required meetings with the group, only two days later the 23 group members were notified that they were being replaced and that they could not reapply for spots on the new board.

In a statement, later that day an agency spokesman, John Czwartacki, took one final swipe at the group. “The outspoken members of the Consumer Advisory Board seem more concerned about protecting their taxpayer-funded junkets to Washington, D.C., and being wined and dined by the Bureau than protecting consumers,” he said.

Revamping the board is all a part of the CFPB’s new approach of reaching out to stakeholders to “increase high-quality feedback,” the agency said in an email to the group. The CFPB will now hold more town halls and roundtable discussions and the new CAB will have fewer members but those members will be impartial and start putting consumers first.

Lib Actress Thinks She’s Above The Law, Sends Threatening Letter To Trump – BAD Idea!

Out of touch, Hollywood elitest actresses turned far-left activists, seem content to use the platform afforded to them by virtue of their profession to spew politics at the rest of America that they clearly have no understanding of while telling the rest of us what we can and what we must believe.

Rather than entertaining, Alyssa Milano now appears to spend a significant portion of her time on Twitter, pushing the far left, extremist agenda.

She recently wrote in an open letter to President Donald Trump that was published on Monday in Bustle magazine in which she claimed that she and millions of healthcare advocates will “vote Republicans out of office in November.”

And just how pray tell is President Trump threatening American families? You remember that entire Obamacare debacle… the one that is “a fine, not a tax” and “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor?” Well, apparently that is all somehow the fault of President Trump and his administration.

She states: “Ever since becoming president, you and the Republican Party have made it your priority to raise the costs of Americans’ health care by any means necessary — but the American people are not backing down.

“A few months into office, you tried to destroy our entire healthcare system in Congress. Your plan would have padded the pockets of the wealthiest 1 percent by slashing over $800 billion from Medicaid and the health care that millions of working families rely upon. It would have raised health care costs up to 850 percent.”

Apparently, attempting to correct this giant financial mess equates to President Trump “threatening” the American people because he dared to try to correct the disaster that Obama left.

Milano continues her nonsensical tirade, adding:

“Your plan would have cost American jobs and American lives, and you tried to convince us that we deserved it.

“Thanks to the voices of millions of health care advocates across the country, you and the Republican Party were stopped, but your attack on our access to health care has only continued.

“In December, you and congressional Republicans pushed the GOP tax bill through Congress, giving even more tax breaks to millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations by forcing working families to foot the bill.

“And in just the last few months, you finalized junk insurance (the same scheme that nearly killed my friend Laura Packard) and nominated a man to the Supreme Court who has refused to defend the 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions and the right to safe abortions that all women deserve.”

Never mind the fact that Obamacare actually raised costs and conservatives and Republicans have called repeatedly for ways to reduce the costs for everyday Americans…

With nary a fact to be found in the entire ridiculous piece, she recites ridiculous and easily disproven leftist talking points verbatim over and over and over again.

Milano’s letter continues with its farcical estimation of the current situation and its roots:

“The American people overwhelmingly disagree with your attacks, but time and time again, you refuse to listen to our voices.

“This is the reality that you have forced on the people you were elected to serve. For the past year and a half, you and the Republican Party have tried to get your way and raised health care costs for millions of Americans by using fear, intimidation, and false statements.

“But no more.

“The American people are stronger than you, and we won’t let you get away with threatening our families, our neighbors, and our communities any longer.”

The lack of self-awareness displayed by Milano throughout her childish tantrum demanding eugenics on demand and socialism is truly astounding and it is clear that reality simply lives nowhere near Milano.

She adds: “There are two months until the midterm elections, and health care voters are not backing down. Across the country, we are are speaking out, sharing our stories, and mobilizing our fellow Americans to vote. Today, there are thousands of healthcare advocates literally taking to the streets in rallies and events across the country to stand up for our access to affordable health care.

“And in 60 days, there will be millions of us marching to the polls to raise our voices even louder.

“We are mobilizing, because when you attack people with pre-existing conditions — whether they are black, brown, or white — you attack all of us.

“You attack children with disabilities like my friend Elena Hung’s daughter, Xiomara, who was labeled a liability to insurance companies the day she was born. You attack people like myself who live with mental illness and who fight every day for the treatment that we deserve.

“And you attack brave Americans with ALS like my friend Ady Barkan, who is spending the last months of his life calling you and congressional Republicans out for attacking our health care.

“But in the face of your hate, we are not going anywhere.

“I am a woman, I am a health care voter, and I cannot wait to submit my ballot and change the tide in November.”

Clearly, Milano in her fact deficient tirade, failed to see that the vast majority of the hate and threats are coming from the left when former Vice President Joe Biden referred to Trump supporters “virulent people,” “the dregs of society” or when Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) encouraged her supporters to accoast Trump administration officials in public to harass them, or telling people when they “knock off” Trump, they should “go after” Vice President Mike Pence.

Americans with facts, brains, and common sense, on the other hand, think Milano is clearly out of her mind.

Kavanaugh’s Wife Puts Reporters Camped Outside Their Home to Shame – Did It With BIG Smile

Since the seemingly “well-planned” release of the alleged sexual assault accusation of Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh, nobody has spoken a word about what his wife and daughters must be dealing with. She’s watched her spouse endure the highest level of scrutiny, after having worked most of his life, sacrificing, to achieve the top judicial position in the country.

It has to be emotionally trying on a level many may never understand to see that opportunity compromised by an assault claim against your husband that’s decades old and lacks substantial detail and recollection.

It’s not about Kavanaugh’s life dedicated to being a fair, honest, and balance judge in our country’s court system and the track record proving that he is. It’s not about his wife and children who have sacrificed time with him while he fills this exceptionally important roll in our country. It seems to be Democrats derailing a decision to put him in place at the highest court in the nation, who is a threat to their agenda, despite the fact that he’s fair and qualified for the Supreme Court position.

Brett Kavanaugh’s wife, Ashley Estes Kavanaugh, has remained silent under all of these allegations and pressure against her husband. She’s kept her poise and class and should be respected for doing so with all the attention on her family. Much of those perpetuating the negative reports on her husband have been camped outside of her family’s home since the moment the allegation came out.

Undoubtedly, this created some difficult conversations with the Kavanaugh’s two young daughters as to what was happening. Ashley, has likely been forced to bear much of the burden this apparent slander has had on their children as well on herself.

However, shouldering all that pressure with tons of eyes constantly outside her home, she finally stepped outside and put all the stalking reporters to shame. She probably wasn’t prepared for the response she got.

The Daily Caller reports:

When press and camera crews from a number of outlets gathered outside her door — as a sexual assault allegation left the Supreme Court nomination of her husband, Brett Kavanaugh, hanging in the balance — Ashley Estes Kavanaugh delivered cupcakes.

According to at least one reporter, CBS’ Kathryn Watson, Kavanaugh offered up cupcakes from Sprinkles, a cupcake bakery in Georgetown.

Watson’s tweet spurred several reactions. First, people asked, “why are you at his house?” and criticized the media for camping out at his house.

Second, the critics began to attack. A number referenced Christine Blasey Ford — who came forward to accuse Judge Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct when they were both in high school 35 years ago — claiming that Ford was being forced into hiding after receiving a number of threats.

And they contrasted those threats with Ashley Kavanaugh handing out cupcakes.

Others simply saw the move as classy, saying, “only a Southerner would think ‘Oh, you hate my family? Here, have a cupcake.’”

This, again, is proof of grace under fire, as we’ve seen from a number of notable conservative women in the past year. There’s nothing more commendable than fighting off hate with kindness, as we’ve seen in Ashley here today, who must be under tremendous pressure, but walked out into the “lion’s den” with a gift and a smile. That’s remarkable and respectable.
