New York Judge Rules Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Unconstitutional Construct…

The CFPB was constructed by Elizabeth Warren and her progressive ideologues as an extra-constitutional government agency.  This was entirely by design.

The CFPB had two two primary, albeit unspoken, functions.  First, it was structured as a holding center for fines and assessments against any financial organizations opposed by progressives.  Second, it was a distribution hub for the received funds to be transferred to political allies and groups supportive of progressive causes.

To pull off this scheme Elizabeth Warren et al ensured it was structured to allow no congressional oversight; however, it was also structured to have no executive branch oversight – and the funding mechanism for the CFPB budget was directly through the federal reserve.  The lack of any legislative or executive branch oversight made the entire scheme unconstitutional according to an earlier court decision.

The CFPB defenders then appealed the decision to a select appellate court in Washington DC to continue the construct.  The Warren crew won the appeal; but today, in an unrelated jurisdictional ruling a New York judge affirmed the minority opinion setting up a possible supreme court pathway to get a final decision.

NEW YORK (AP) – The U.S. government’s beleaguered consumer finance watchdog agency is unconstitutionally structured, a judge said Thursday as she disqualified the agency from serving as a plaintiff in a lawsuit.

U.S. District Judge Loretta A. Preska in Manhattan reached the conclusion about the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in a written decision.

Her ruling related to a lawsuit brought against companies loaning money to former National Football League players awaiting payouts from the settlement of a concussion-related lawsuit and to individuals slated to receive money for injuries sustained when they helped in the World Trade Center site cleanup after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

She let claims brought by the New York State attorney general proceed, but dismissed those that were brought by the CPFB, saying it “lacks authority to bring this enforcement action because its composition violates the Constitution’s separation of powers.”

In ruling, Preska sided with three judges who dissented from the six-judge majority in a January ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington. The majority found that the agency director’s power is not excessive and that the president should not have freer rein to fire that person.  (read more)

CFPB Interim Director Mick Mulvaney has already said the CFPB needs to be disassembled.

Taking the agency down is perfectly ok with the Trump administration.

    What is it with Progressive’s strong attachment to the utter lack of oversight. It almost seems like they know what they’re doing is wrong or something. 😉

    Btw, whatever happened to the Acting chief (the one in the picture) if anyone knows? Hopefully she’s safely outside the agency.

    There’s a lot of gnashing about John Roberts and his Obama Care decisions on the previous page. I was as outraged as anybody when those decisions came down. In retrospect, I think Justice Roberts did the right thing. The Courts under the left have done nothing but overturn the will of the people as acted on by their elected representatives. After watching President Trump so carefully thread the needle to not take outrageous positions outside of the boundaries of common sense good law, I have grown to respect his patiencs and his willingness to work within the system. Did I want fast results a year ago? Damn right. But now I understand what he is doing. He is salvaging the system by respecting it as he carefully and relentlessly cuts out the corruption. I have no proof, but I think that’s what Roberts did in the Obamacare decision. Unlike any of Obama’s dictatorial orders, Obamacare went through Congress. A tortured path through Congress, no question, but it did go through Congress, and it became the law of the land. I think it would have been a bad precedent to overturn it in the Courts. I hate the law, but it was a law made the way laws should be made. I know, corrupt Congress, etc., but a Congress elected by the people, none the less.

            I hated every speech given by Obama to “hard sell” Obamacare. He was bent on making it law and withing that law, much was added to burden small business owners and restrict the freedom of the people. Obama preached and preached again and again until in the wee hours of the morning a Democrat controlled Senate votes strictly down party lines to pass Obamacare. It was gruesome to watch and a relief to many business owners when Trump pushed to have many of the burdens, penalities and restrictions taken away.

            I’m not necessarily against people having a mean to acquire health care if it is done right. Most people don’t realize now that even under Obama’s system, one had to be able to prove income of at least $15,000 per year. That is why the $15.00 minimum wage was pushed into action.

            One thing that always kept me from attempting to open a business has been the question of insurance. It can be terribly expensive to fund insurance for a family of four when one is taking a risk of opening a new business and taking risk that may or may not result in success.

      I have a different take on this monumental fiasco perpetrated by:
      1. Jonathan Gruber who wrote the ACA and said, the bill was deliberately written “in a tortured way” to disguise the fact that it creates a system by which “healthy people pay in and sick people get money”. He said this obfuscation was needed due to “the stupidity of the American voter” in ensuring the bill’s passage. Gruber said the bill’s inherent “lack of transparency is a huge political advantage” in selling it.The comments caused significant controversy one can google all that!
      2. The Dimms super majority in at the time who voted without reading bc Nancy said vote then see what is in it! Just proved Gruber’s opinion of the Americans particularly when the left has the upper hand how they treat the right and conservatives minority acted as deers looking at the headlights!
      3. The Repubs hoping a reprieve on individual mandate from the so called conservativ SCOTUS and getting a kick on the teeth with another Gruber like scenario from of all people Roberts! If somebody in Repubs had asked me about Roberts his obfuscation was written on the wall(or rather on subway wall)! Roberts was deathly afraid of Obama who was like a second coming of Messiah! He was not mentally strong as was required at the time, he had suffered couple of seizers and it was just not recommended for him that to face the so called Messiah and the guy voted against his confirmation! He blinked!
      Don’t forget he messed up Obama’s swearing! LOL
      4. Obamacare affected the biggest industry that does have the smartest ripoff artists in the country who are also close to Messiah like image! Some doctors may be good but a great numbers are pill pushers of high prices and getting under the table kickbacks! Practically nothing was done to enhance citizen med education within the country! It is a boon for the foreign doctors and quality of practice has gone down!
      Thank goodness Trumpster has the guts to fight on all fronts!

      Couldn’t disagre more.

      First. Roberts didn’t uphhold Obamacare. He rewrote it. He did so by declaring the “penalty” for failing to buy insurance (the “individual mandate”) was a tax, not a penalty. However, tax bills must originate in the House, by law. Obamacare originated in the Senate. Roberts never addressed those facts. He stabbed The People in the back.

      Second, overturning an unconstitutional law is never “bad precedent”. Obamacare was deeply flawed and moreso, the law itself was a dangerous precedent. Why? Because, in Obama’s own words of long ago, the road to government controlled health care was one of small steps. Obamacare was the first of the steps leading to a government controlled monopoly on health. And death of the sick.

      That’s exactly what it is. Soon there will be no money left for the dem party to campaign on. They were essentially broke last go around. Thats how Hillary was able to bail out…er um… buy out the DNC and make sure Bernie lost.

        Yes, but there’s no end of rich fools. Bloomberg is supposedly throwing $80 mil to the Dems in the coming mid-terms. Didn’t Soros just spend a pile in California on D.A. races with zero to show for it? You really can’t fix stupid. And there really is NO cure for narcissism.

      Sue, you nailed it, that is how Obey did everything…Make up crimes, settle out of court (cheaper for those accused), steal the money, funnel to ‘Friends’! I think anyone involved in that scam should be taken out and shot, or HUNG! We don’t need a trial, they convicted themselves with their illegal actions!

    Sorry folks but this how the swamp has been operating in the US for a very very long time while other swamp members approve and do the same exact thing. Each state citizen has a patriotic duty to remove swamp members with their votes. So I feel we either educated the voters in each state or become 2A militiamen in each. Your choice!

    So, what Im understanding is that the structure of the CFPB gave it an internal conflict of intetest. It would be both plaintiff and defendant. the cool thing is that Micky the Dismantler will not challenge the ruling!

    The Federal Reserve is not a US Government entity, they are a private secretive institution run by phantom investors. It’s about as Federal as Federal Express. It’s like a private bank that prints money for the government on demand. Controlling the currency. You can go down a rabbit hole researching it…

    From what I understand, the temporary appointment of Mulvaney as acting director of CFPB just expired. However, now that POTUS Trump has appointed someone, Mulvaney is there until his person is nominated.

    From the article SD links, the dems are using the “kids in cages separated from their parents” issue to slow walk confirmation. Either way, we win.

    “Republican President Donald Trump recently named Kathy Kraninger to head the CFPB. U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat who helped create the CFPB, has said she wants to block the nomination of Kraninger, who is currently an associate director at the Office of Management and Budget, until she knows if Kraninger had a role in the policy to separate children from parents crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.”

    I wonder if Mick Mulvaney deliberately tried to have CFPB be a plaintiff in the case knowing that the judge might rule this way?

    This CFPB construct was obviously an attempt by Libs to set up an Extra-Govermental Control structure so they could take over everything with similar agencies once this ‘worked’! It’s amazing a Judge actually called it what it was. Now we need to HANG all those involved for TREASON! I’m getting really tired of the Left’s attempts to turn America into a Communist State with them in charge.

      We can’t get tired – we have to get EVEN, and then some! Too many voted for all this. I was a Dem in SoCal for 26 years and believe me I voted for a whole lot of truly evil, dangerous people. Atoning for this for the rest of my life. Many patriots are.

    I’m finally willing to concede that when Hillary said vast right wing conspiracy she was actually telling the truth which is clearly a break from the norm with her. It’s quite obvious that republicans in Congress conspired long ago with their “friends across the isle” to screw the funding mechanism = the taxpaying slave for the benefit of the government class. All that is required of you is play your part for the corporate cameras. There’s really no good argument for the system we currently have because it sure as hell is not a constitutional republic.
