OMB Director Mick Mulvaney Brilliant MAGA Segment During Cabinet Meeting…

Office of Management and Budget Direct Mick Mulvaney had a break-out session during the White House cabinet meeting today where he discussed part of the government restructuring and reform proposals.

We have waited a long time for this type of common sense initiative.  This is MAGA.  Some will say it can’t be done; however, if it is not attempted it most certainly will never be done. As President Trump has shared for years: “the impossible is only the starting point”; and I would not bet against this administration actually getting this accomplished.  WATCH:

      Also, with condensing programs that do the same thing into one regulatory agency you 1) identify redundancy and 2) make it easier to reduce or eliminate fraud and abuse and waste.

        Rhoda R, exactly redundancy means so much evil can be done. Mulvaney, you are great! and so happy you brought this forward to we can remove a lot of employees in DC, concentrate on fewer departments that will actually be logical and working for America. Thanks to you Pocohonas’s gamey department without oversight has now been crushed by a judge so I suppose she is weeping again. Small government was the start of America so, yes, let’s get back to a smaller government with proper oversight and no more having to go here, there and wherever to get anything done. Thank you, Mulvaney, and your fantastic economic mind. I feel confident that our President knew about this because he wants a smaller government, a more honest Congress, and Supreme Court that only has ONE power and that is to interpret laws and not make them. Hearing this today has made my day 100% better and knowing that the great appointees are actually working for us and not for themselves (or YOU’RE FIRED).

        Don’t disagree at all.

        Personally the only thing I want accomplished in a merger is if it makes it easier for the merged departments to be eliminated in their entirety I want downsizing. Then I want laws prohibiting these kind of departments being instituted again as being unconstitutional. The EPA among others are responsible for take over of the Federal government into every aspect of our lives. The Department of Education was directly responsible for promoting the faster demise of our education in this country. Sorry I’m just not impressed with merger even if it was never accomplished before unless it means they will eventually be gone as a result of the merger.

          Read the Constitution about enumerated powers and then read the 10th Amendment…it’s all there but ignored by the ‘Deep State’, + Judges for many years. They ignore these provisions as they take away all their power!

          If we must have ‘Bureaucracies’ then every rule, policy and ‘law’ they push out should stand before the Congress and require a 2/3 Majority of both houses, then POTUS signature to go into effect. That would stop our current Bureaucratic State run amok!

            I believe the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, is now obstructing the efforts of Devin Nunes to hold Rosenstein in contempt for obstructing Congressional oversight. The first deadline was when Rosenstein was to meet with them to ‘review documents’ but the DOJ reneged. The second time Nunes set a deadline, Ryan asked him to give the DOJ more time before giving his approval to take that action. Of course it is all a big UniParty cover up operation by Ryan and Rosenstein. Nunes can’t really enforce anything without the Speaker.

          Nunes in 2032 as VP to one or the other, hopefully Pompeo takes over from President Trump with Mick as VP and then Mick as President with Nunes VP and finally Nunes as President with some other MAGA VP. That would secure the USA 🇺🇸 until 2048 at least.

      We, as voters, wil have to be prepared to spend some time visiting or calling the offices of people on committees, and registering our demands. It really unnerves them.

      For example, I called Rob Bishop, Chairman of one of the interior committees, when that bizarre Puerto Rican PROMESA bailout legislation was in the works (another Ryan/Donor failure). I was well versed on the issue, and he was deeply involved. I wasn’t able to talk with him, but I WAS able to talk with one of his personal legislative directors.

      He was astonished that I knew about the issue, was interested, and I think he was a little intimidated. He didn’t think anybody cared but the PRs and the Wall St. donors, and he felt exposed. Imagine that, a legislative staffer actually having to talk to one of the peons! The point is, he was not prepared to actually interact with the public, and that was to my advantage.

      So, I learned that they are used to hearing from, and dismissing, their constituents, but if we were to call a Congressman in his role as a committee head, or whip, or some other capacity, it would completely overwhelm that and let them know that we are involved, educated, motivated, and NOT GOING AWAY! SO DO IT!

      Paco Loco, by rearranging all this as put forth by Mulvaney would automatically reduce the number of departments, save a hunk of our tax money, and reduce employments of way too many in those separate department. When I was young there was only 25% of Americans working in DC, and now a huge number with outrageously high salaries more than many of us get. So creating fewer departments will speed up getting results, fewer employees and probably a lot of empty buildings that can be sold, leased, whatever to bring more money into our country. This is exciting to see the Trump appointees are sharp and doing what they were appointed to do.

      Just like in any company reorg,, overlapping functions mean downsizing. Or merging two functions or company’s means duplication which produces savings by reductions in force which when it comes to dindu nuffin fed employees is good enough for me.

    He is so great at making common-sense explanations of these absurd governmental complexities.

    I enjoy listening to Mick as much as listening to our Wilburine.
    We are so fortunate to have them both working for us, to clean up this mess.

    Mick was being far too generous with Bill Clinton, though.
    Clinton wasn’t the one who was trying to ‘reform’ anything…it was Newt Gingrich.

    Newt Gingrich was the one who was trying to de-fund Agencies, eliminate arcane & absurd programs, cut govt waste…and balance the budget.
    Bill Clinton fought him every step of the way.
    Then, Bubba took credit for anything that Newt forced him to do!

    Mick is in a position of power to get things done.
    And our VSG President has his back…which is a wonderful thing.

    I don’t know if anyone’s tumbled to this, and posted it (if so, sorry about the repetition) but what’s being discussed here is no more or less than a massive merger. Every time you merge functions or firms you get redundancy in the work force. That means the payroll subsequently shrinks. I know – my railroad merging with another in the mid-80s resulted in me losing my job but also going back to school and finally getting my bachelor’s degree. If the payroll shrinks in the government, our taxes should tick downward but, more importantly, it becomes less and less of a haven for Liberals, Socialists, and outright Communists like the female who harassed POTUS a few days ago. Not only that, but with fewer employees, those remaining will have to work harder and will have less time to plot sedition or “la resistance,” as it were.

    I wish Mulvaney every possible good outcome in his endeavor. He will need the stalwart backing of POTUS because many of the Dems will be dead-set against shrinking the size of the government, it’s their best and most loyal constituency.

      Not disagreeing but put another way what we’re hearing is non-political speak. Politicians must never speak honestly about a problem. Probably because they don’t understand the complexity of the problem or don’t really want to fix it. That’s why after listening to a talk by a politician you still don’t understand what he just said. It’s a kind of phony glibness all politicians learn to master.

    Talk about workin’, when he swung that spreadsheet,
    You could hear, for miles, the squeals of the deadbeats.

    Talk about thinking, that man’s so smart,

    And RINOs line up to take a kick, from Mick

    Talk about tough, well he once had a fight
    With Squaw Fauxohontas on a cold dark night.
    I ain’t sayin’ who won,
    but we don’t hear her shtick, thanks to Mick

    He was 50 years old when he said with a sigh,
    “I can’t watch my Country just lay down and die!
    We have to re-deem her, brick by brick.” Said Mick

    It took eighteen months just to bust the ground.
    24 more to run the permits down.
    This system is dumb, we’ll change it real quick, says Mick

    So late one night, DC starts to shaking
    The Dems start to howlin’ and RINOs a- quaking
    “It’s a matter of pride, they call me a prick” says Mick

    He shook the stench from his DC clothes
    He scratched his butt and wiped his nose
    “DC’s no fun, these people are sick,” said Mick

    So next time you hear a ‘Timber’ yell
    That sounds like it’s coming from the pits of hell
    Then a weird and devilish, ghostly wail
    Like someone choppin’ on the devil’s tail
    It’s just the Director of OMB,
    One who FINALLY works for you and me,
    Slashing their cash as he flicks his Bic, that’s Mick.

    Mick is the Man! He sets the stage for his talk by describing the fact that, while we all complain about how big The Beast has gotten, and it never stops growing, that the germination of this incarnation is about 100 years old.

    And then he proceeds to give hard examples of the sheer lunacy of the complexity that has evolved and become “The Beast.” It takes a smart and dedicated group of people to take on reformation of something so colossal but the way he describes it, it can be done in bite size pieces.

    Gives one hope that while the Federal Employee Union and many others will be screaming bloody murder, the people who elected, and will reelect President Trump, want, need, must have this kind of thinking and action to save our Republic. After all, the government is the servant of the People, and not vice versa, a tax source of unlimited funds to be wasted by idiots and their crony partners.
