OMB Director Mick Mulvaney CPAC Discussion…

    Get some more White Hats for these unfilled positions…not easy….surely they have to be out there. First of all, look outside the swamp.

      I can easily imagine the number of people who would never want to be included in that swamp called DC. The atmosphere, the high property cost, overall cost of living, just knowing the majority of the people there are probably Communist. That has to be the most depressive city deep down. Until the federal government is broken up and moved to various locations, DC will always be ‘Teh Swamp’.

      That means Republicans who are Conservatives, which is the only kind there should be.

      Any other kind is just a Uni-Party demonrat by another name.

        And my pet peeve — Conservatives need all “conservatives” to define what they are conserving. “Republican” won’t do. Nor will any other label. We need more President Donald Trump Pragmatic Republicans.

        I am a classical liberal, conserving American Republic classical liberal values that were hard won from both the Protestant Reformation and the Enlightenment. I honor, as someone from Protestant background, all Christians from whatever background in this country — so long as they support the American republic and the representative democratic traditions that are included. All are fundamentally defined by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

        I wish to exclude from the protections of citizenship of this United States of American all those who will not pledge allegiance to the Constitution of our Republic. This is what I conseve.

        Mick Mulvaney, to my way of thinking, is a conservative, a classical liberal, and a pragmatist, like our beloved President. More power to them all. MAGA

            And all too often Jack it is choosing the lesser of two evils. We here in VA-7 know how hard it is to primary an incumbent. But we Cantored Eric. Been happy with Brat but we need term limits to make sure they don’t stay too long and get sucked into the muck of the swamp.

              All states need term limits. Since we all know the cretins of DC will never vote themselves out of a taxpayer funded pension we will have to find a way around these Federal doofuses. The only way I see a possibility is with state referendums that forces the term limit act within each state. I really believe most people, even in Blue states, are all in favor of term limits.

          Pyromancer: If I may ask, what do you mean when you say, “classical liberal values that were hard won from both the Protestant Reformation and the Enlightenment”, what values exactly?

          • Mr. T. says:

            LEET, I believe what Pyromancer is trying to say, is that today’s democratic party is nothing at all like it was back in the day. Today’s democratic party is a socialist(communist) progressive bunch of misfits, who have no respect for our Constitution and Bill of Rights, or what they represent to us who support them. They are now the facist tyrants who want, We, The People, to give up what so many have fought so hard to protect, including our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights. The old democratic party believed in less government, more personal freedoms, Americans first, and they believed in God, family values, and weren’t afraid to step up, take the oath, and defend our country and what it stands for as a proud member of our Armed Forces.

            The classical liberalism of Thomas Hobbes, John Locke and others is the framework of American governance. Based in the concepts of natural rights and consent of the governed, its simplest expression is the Declaration of Independence.

          I don’t want him anywhere near the immigration issue. He is an open borders guy. Great where he is.


    • No, we need Government that’s made up of PATRIOT CITIZENS.
      • Who serve the people, not themselves.
      • Who put America First, not oligarchs.
      • Who have the character to do what’s right when no one else is looking.

    This is a great segment. Love Director Mick Mulvaney!

    He’s wearing Captain America socks. Heheh.
    He mentioned his daughter, so I guess she gave them to him.

    He mentions how ‘Deregulation’ is a foreign concept to so many in our govt.
    I can imagine.
    He said a lot of these people weren’t born yet the last time there were any serious efforts to deregulate…and that there is “no form for deregulation”.

    Sounds like he is having to constantly keep his people herded towards the goal of Deregulating.
    Bureaucrats don’t like it, I’m sure.
    Fewer regulations = fewer jobs for bureaucrats.

    What a great pick for the job!
    Thank you, Mr. President, for choosing Mick Mulvaney for this herculean task.
    And thank you, Mick, for the great job you’re doing!

    Glad we are on CPAC. Gotta take a short break from Special Witch Hunt and Broward County Corruption Inc. Got lots of catching up on CPAC so far here are a few takeaways:

    Ajit Pai, FCC Republican Senate forced Bozo to appoint. Got rid of Net Neutrality, although there is a Senate vote on regulations coming up. Totally an America First guy.

    Steve Moore, Reports 1Q18 GDP data (thats data with a D) shows 3.5% growth. Yuuuugggeee!!!

    Ok on to the next one in my catch up.

    I expected a lot more corruption to come to the forefront on this rancid CFPB take over but it’s been a big nothing, plus the lying Indian was up to her eyes in it with her filthy fingers right in the rotting meat,but zero not a head rolled , maybe it will be in the Horowitz report the I.G thing that everyone is waiting for .


    • Sylvia Avery says:

      Your post made me wonder a bit. I was doubtful that the Horowitz report that we’re all waiting on would have anything to say about the CFPB, but it made me wonder if that stupid “agency” with its corrupt structure was even answerable to an Inspector General? So I looked it up, and found this:

      “A new bipartisan effort is underway to create the Office of an Independent Inspector General to oversee the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

      The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection-Inspector General Act of 2015 has been put forward by Rep. Steve Stivers (R-OH) and Rep. Tim Walz (D-MN). The representatives noted that there are more than 30 federal departments or agencies that have an independent Inspector General, but the CFPB shares an Inspector General with the Federal Reserve—and that Inspector General is appointed by the Fed leadership without congressional confirmation. Under the new legislation, a new CFPB Inspector General focusing solely on the Bureau’s activities would be appointed by the president and then confirmed by the Senate….”

      The biggest plus is that the CFPB is no longer a Liberals slush fund.

    This Consumer Financial thing was created as a slush fund for Pocahontas Warren’s BFFs. For every non-profit group that promoted the liberal cause, they gave the money collected from fines from banks and other institutions. What a scam! Love the Mul! He’s another unsung Hero along with Nunes. The President has some real talent surrounding him.

  15. Director Mulvaney gives me confidence that he actually knows all about the ‘doing’ rather than being merely a political appointment with a skillset limited to winging it as a figurehead.

    I’m sure it must have been frustrating early on for the bureaucracy when they employed their standard (Sir Humphrey-esque) tactics of complicated gobbledegook as a means of pulling the wool over the Director’s eyes. I suspect many are now somewhat pleasantly surprised to find themselves working diligently to the Administration’s agenda, as hard & honest work will always be more satisfying.


  16. Michael says:

    You know, I had strong reservations about Mick Mulvaney’s appointment to OMB based on his history however he has completely proved me wrong. Amazing!


  17. Pam says:

    It can’t be easy to wear two hats every day but Mulvaney has somehow found a way to make it work. I never imagined what a huge asset he would be to this administration. He’s doing a tremendous job.

      Mulvaney 2024 with VP Nunes. Could you even imagine?


    • mopar2016 says:

      Mulvaney probably has a very hi IQ.
      You can tell that he’s a ringer when it comes to numbers and percentages.

      And he seems very comfortable while running two agencies at once.
      I’ve seen him on ” Face the Nation” and other shows, and he sometimes makes the host look like a simpleton. Juan McCain voted against his confirmation, so that’s another reason that I like this guy.

    MUST WATCH for anyone who needs help understanding how taxes, budgets, and spending should work. It will be 17 minutes well spent.
    Mick does an incredible job as always. And the host, Daneen Borelli, is excellent – just asks questions, then lets Mick speak – very refreshing!
    If you only have 1 min, watch at the 17:00 mark. Mick sums up the Trump plan and you will believe that America WILL be great again!

    Problem with all the good and energetic words spoken at CPAC is that one CPAC idiot destroyed it all with his “racial” comments about former RNC Chairman Steele. Guess what video clip 100% of the MSM is going to be playing all the way to November elections?? This will be followed by discussion of a Republican Party supported by KKK loving CPAC…somebody in the RNC better get ahead of this or it will not matter if Trump has a 100% approval rating because he will have support after the elections.
