Acting CFPB Director Mick Mulvaney Holds Brilliant Press Conference – Video…

Make Sure You Watch The Video:

OMB Director Mick Mulvaney is covering as ‘Acting Director‘ for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) until a permanent replacement is nominated by President Trump.  As most people are aware the Democrats are apoplectic about their holy grail bureau being under oversight of Mr. Mulvaney.  As evidence of their angst they are supporting legal maneuvers to stop the Trump administration from carrying authority within the agency.

The Department of Justice, White House Office of Legal Counsel (OLC), agreed with President Trump’s authority to appoint an ‘acting director’.  The legal counsel within the CFPB also agreed that President Trump was well within his authority to appoint Mulvaney.   However, that didn’t stop bureau employee Leandra English from filing a weakly positioned lawsuit trying to stop Director Mulvaney.

A federal judge listened to the argument of CFPB employee Ms. English a few hours ago. Judge Tim Kelly did not make an immediate ruling.  Instead, the DOJ will file a response to the pleading later tonight and Judge Kelly said he’ll take a look and make a decision from there.

The CFPB is the product of far-left progressives, specifically Elizabeth Warren, initially setting up a financial control agency that operates without congressional oversight. The Bureau construct was challenged in court and ruled ‘unconstitutional’.  That’s the backdrop for this press conference today with Acting Director Mick Mulvaney.


“Only one person who today showed up at work claiming to be director.”  “She wasn’t here.”   “In the ordinary world, if you don’t call, you don’t show, you don’t have a job the next day, but I’m not sure how it works here.”

The CFPB was essentially created to work as a legal money laundering operation for progressive causes by fining financial institutions for conduct the CFPB finds in violation of their unilateral and arbitrary rules and regulations.  The CFPB then use the proceeds from the fines to fund progressive organizations and causes. That’s the underlying reason why the Democrats are fraught with anxiety right now.

Elizabeth Warren set up the bureau to operate above any oversight. Additionally, the bureau was placed under spending authority of the federal reserve. The CFPB gets its operating budget from the Federal Reserve, not from congress. Again, this was set-up to keep congress from defunding the agency as a way to remove it. Everything about the way the CFPB was structured was done to avoid any oversight. Hence, a DC circuit court finding the agency held too much power, and deemed the Directors unchecked position unconstitutional.

Mick Mulvaney is now in a position to look at the books, look at the prior records within the bureau, and expose the political agenda within it to the larger public. That is sending the progressives bananas.

Most likely President Trump will not appoint a replacement until Mulvaney has exposed the corruption within the bureau.  That sunlight is toxic to Elizabeth Warren and can potentially be politically destructive to the Democrats. If the secrets within the bureau are revealed, there’s a much greater likelihood the bureau will be dissolved.

There are billions of scheme and graft at stake. Within the record-keeping there are more than likely dozens of progressive/Democrat organizations being financed by the secret enterprise that operates without oversight.  That’s the risk to the SWAMP.

    Absolutely love Mulvaney!
    I forwarded the link & video from CTH to a friend currently on business trip in China. Like most successful businessmen, he has very little time to follow the inner workings and swamp machinations of DC. What troubles me is the one-sided, blatant abuse of power at this Warren created “bureau.” Until last week, I had little understanding of what this bureau actually does. My friend currently in China is a CFO for a mid-size manufacturer based in USA. He too is in the dark as to how one sided and Swampian things have become in DC after 8 years of Obama preceded by 20 years of Bush/Clinton Uniparty rule. Drain the Swamp!

  3. Trump also provided cover for Mulvaney today by zinging Fauxcahontas during the ceremony today honoring the WWII Navajo Code Talkers. By putting her name and face in public this way on this particular day is no coincidence. Now people will associate Princess Crazy Talk with TWO important frauds: her false claims to Indian ancestry and her creation of a powerful, unconstitutional and unaccountable new bureaucracy.

    Typical Trump. There is method behind the madness.

Indeed, thank God for President Trump!

      Is it really necessary to get AG Sessions bashing into every single thread?

      Ag Sessions PLUGGED THE LEAKS so you have ZERO idea of what Sessions is doing behind the scenes.

      So what do we know AG Sessions doing?
      Here is one example:
      “A federal complaint was unsealed today charging Candace Marie Claiborne, 60, of Washington, D.C., and an employee of the U.S. Department of State, with obstructing an official proceeding and making false statements to the FBI, both felony offenses, for allegedly concealing numerous contacts that she had over a period of years with foreign intelligence agents….

      Candace Marie Claiborne is a U.S. State Department employee who possesses a Top Secret security clearance and allegedly failed to report her contacts with Chinese foreign intelligence agents who provided her with thousands of dollars of gifts and benefits,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General McCord. “Claiborne used her position and her access to sensitive diplomatic data for personal profit. Pursuing those who imperil our national security for personal gain will remain a key priority of the National Security Division.”… (Can you say TREASON…) —

      AG Sessions nimbly side stepped Congress appointing a a Special Counsel that would allow the Swamp Critters in Congress access to any investigation into Uranium one. SEE 28 CFR § 600.9

      There have been many FBI raids taking place. These raids so far have netted 4,474 arrests that includes those trafficking children and young adults into sex trade/slavery. Out of these nearly 2,000 were in California alone. This includes the biggest Pedophile Ring affecting 68,000 children — Operation Broken Heart.

      214 U.S.-based MS-13 gang members were arrested. Sixty-four poor “Unaccompanied Alien Children” (DACA) many turn out to be vicious killers.

      Nov 26, 2017 — For those of us keeping track, there are now 4,289 sealed federal indictments filed nationwide in less than a month. The national average per year is 250. tweet

    You gotta get the terms correct Buddy.

    The former Director appointed an “acting director,” who fills the position while the current director is unavailable. There is no current director, the minute the director resigned. President Trump appointed an “interim director” because there was no sitting director, who will serve until his nominee is “consented” to by the Senate. There is a huge difference….and that difference is why Trump should win.

Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so the that American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.

          If she does not request and is approved leave (e.g. sick, annual) then yes. I doubt she has any intention of accumulating AWOL charges. She will show up for work or request some vacation time.

          There’s no urgent need to fire her. I brought this up at the beginning of the President’s term when talking about some of the other agencies.

          The government has much more leverage over CURRENT employees than it does over former employees. Having her on the payroll requires her to cooperate with government investigators. She can be forced to answer questions about the operations. If she refuses to cooperate or lies, then she can be criminally charged with hindering an investigation.

        Not sure how discipline works at her pay grade, but a rank-and-file employee must be put on an “improvement plan” and given the opportunity to improve during a probationary period. Repeated failures or offenses can culminate in termination, but this entire chain of disciplinary procedures needs to be conducted and document for the termination to be bullet-proof.

    It’s frustrating that these employees come under the Federal Reserve. I often use to research the salaries of federal employees. But employees in this bureau show up under Agency=Federal Reserve System, and are thus not included in the federal employee data base. More secrecy.

    For an agency that is supposed to be about transparency, they certainly don’t practice what they preach.

    Interesting wiki tidbit about the toxic oleander, Ms. Leandra English:
    “Before joining the CFPB, she served as a senior advisor to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget under President Barack Obama.” OMB, Mulvaney’s other job…

    Can or will there be an audit of the CFPB? I wonder also if there will be an audit of the Fed.

    ARGH! Stupid phone!

    …He WILL find malfeasance. He will find that the “overseer” of CFPB, the Fed, was involved. Those facts, and questions, would beg for a Fed auditing.

    Lordy, lordy, the draining out the swamp started slowly, the momentum is building faster and faster, it will take a bit longer but it is getting done. Thank you President Trump and our wonderful cabinet of like minded people, most of all thank you God.

    It would have been brilliant if, after referring to his own small business ownership, Mulvaney had thrown in, “I built it”.

    Think of the evidence they likely have access to. Looks like an institution used for pushing undocumented money to me.

    Imagine all the dirty tricks against tea
    partiers and the progressive’s political
    enemies that will be revealed.
    Also the corrupt fines used to finance their
    Subversive groups.
    The media still refer to president Trump as a boob but he is showing that he has mastered statecraft. They may have destroyed records but they can’t fool honest men like
    Mr. Mulvaney.

    The reason we’re all filling so comfy is because we now realize Mulvaney is very competent… and we already know the entire Democrat bench is highly incompetent. No way in hell they’re going to stop this guy from doing what needs to be done.

      Mr. Mulvaney is quick witted and competent. He and his staff will slog through the muck of the CFPB agency and find and expose lots of funny business. It will take time.
      It appears the Democrats were very sneaky, greedy and crooked when they set up Dodd-Frank and the CFPB agency. Pocahontas Warren, Barack Obama, Treasury Secretary Geitner, Janet Yellen at the Federal Reserve, Democratic Congressional Representatives and Senators , staffers and lawyers galore were most likely involved in this scheme. It will be interesting to learn how money was directed towards the schemers. Also how much money CFPB fines generated and how monies were dispersed to favored Democratic Groups.
      The swamp is deep, ugly and toxic.

    I personally want to see this Bureau dissolved. The paragraph in the post I liked the most:

    “Most likely President Trump will not appoint a replacement until Mulvaney has exposed the corruption within the bureau. That sunlight is toxic to Elizabeth Warren and can potentially be politically destructive to the Democrats. If the secrets within the bureau are revealed, there’s a much greater likelihood the bureau will be dissolved.”

    Mulvaney said there is a $53 million account on the CFPB’s general ledger that makes periodic disbursements. He placed a freeze on the account pending his personal review. How much do you want to bet it’s a slush fund used to pay groups like OFA, AntiFa, BLM, Occupy WS, etc.? The account can also donate to DNC campaigns we are learning? How? With money they get from where?
