Listening to the President of the United States of America talking to Native American Veterans about their unique contribution in WWII as “Codetalkers” and in this ceremony honoring Veterans he chose to take a moment to make disparaging remarks about Senator Elizabeth Warren… WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM?? Omg… words can’t say… he’s just disgusting, I am so ashamed of his representation of the USA. Okay, but is his real motive in playing the idiot to defer attention from the real damage to all of us… for instance, when Richard Cordray Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau resigned on Friday, the agency’s Chief of Staff Leandra English, was appointed Deputy Director, a natural and wise chain of knowledge. The position requires confirmation by the Senate, however Trump immediately thwarted the due process and appointed his own lackey, Mick Mulvaney, being more interested in pleasing lobbyists for the banking industry. it is apparent time after time that Trump is only interested in dismantling our government which was developed for “of the people, by the people, for the people”, to a government favoring the wealthy and the rest of us be damned. He himself personally has taken the position it is smart to declare bankruptcy to save his money rather than pay contractors, small business owners and laborers their rightful due. Please don’t listen to his words, although hard to ignore, but watch what he is doing to our country, he is doing away with all protection for the “common man”. Too tRUMP we are all “losers” and don’t deserve protection from people like him. We need to protect ourselves before it is too late.

So, read our columnists Tom Hastings, Robert Koehler, Kary Love and Kathy Kelly to try and make sense of the times…oh these times…..

One thought on “Wednesday, November 29, 2017

  1. Now that the Crack Editorial Staff of the Prospect has broached the subject of Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren and the formerly obscure Consumer Financial Protection Board, maybe its time to learn more about this unaccountable government bureaucracy and Warren’s involvement in its creation.

    From the Conservative Tree House Blog:

    “…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 previously challenged in court and ruled ‘unconstitutional’…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…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…”

    “…The Democrats, most specifically Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren and crew, are apoplectic at the end result of their too-cute-by-half plans and the possibility of their agency being deconstructed. What is even more delicious to note – in their rush to construct the entire CFPB scheme the Dodd-Frank law does not specify the deputy director as next in line to serve in the event of a vacancy. That means President Trump is within his normal constitutional powers to appoint whomever he likes.

    In appointing Mick Mulvaney President Trump has now put in place someone who can be counted on to deconstruct Warren’s leftist plan to control all our financial transactions by dictatorial fiat and unilateral authority. By their own doing Pocahontas et al created a situation they are now powerless to stop…”

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions has also reversed an Obama-era policy of having corporate defendants fund nonprofit organizations as a part of settlements of claims for civil or criminal liability.

    This is how the big government swamp gets drained, and the Trump Administration is just getting started.
