The Games People Play

Apparently “silly season” is not limited to electoral nonsense in D.C. The democrats and the media whores have made Republican presidents the object of non-stop abuse for decades. Then a creature not born of the swamp descended on Washington like a cyclone in a wheat field. Not content to silently take the abuse democrats dish out the way Bush did, Trump hits back. Sometimes swiftly, as in the CFPB attempted coup, other times like Chinese water torture.

Winning: Donald Trump Calls Democrats’ Budget Bluff on Amnesty
President Donald Trump stepped up his budget confrontation with Democratic leaders today and called their bluff on their mumbled threats to block the 2018 budget if it did not include the unpopular ‘Dreamer’ amnesty.

Instead, the Democrats retreated to Congress where they lobbed complaints at Trump. The retreat left amnesty advocates in the lurch, despite months — and years — of media-magnified claims that the American public wants a no-strings amnesty for the 3 million ‘dreamers,’ plus their millions of chain-migration relatives.

Trump dared “them to shut the government” and they folded, said Mark Krikorian.

WINNING! POTUS Trump Gives Presser Next to Empty Chairs for Pelosi-Schumer …. PELOSI FREAKS OUT

Senile Nancy Pelosi threw a tantrum because Trump gave a press conference next to two empty seats after the House Minority leader and her fossil counterpart in the Senate, Chuck Schumer decided to be a no-show Tuesday
“Meeting with ‘Chuck and Nancy’ today about keeping government open and working. Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I don’t see a deal!” Trump tweeted.

In a stunning visual, President Trump gave a press conference next to two empty seats where Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were supposed to be sitting.

REMEMBER THIS FROM THE RNC CONVENTION?

Trolling the two butthurt Dems with the empty seats in the Roosevelt Room reminded me of another notable empty chair scenario. Picture it. The year was 2012. The Oscar-winning actor/director/legend Clint Eastwood entered the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the site of the RNC Convention, in dramatic fashion with the backdrop screen showing a large silhouette of him from the film “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”. The speakers in the arena were blaring the score from the film. The crowd ate it up.

SPEAKING OF BUTTHURT:

CNN to boycott White House Christmas party

Under fire from Trump, the network says it would be ‘inappropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests.’

“CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party,” a CNN spokesperson said. “In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests. We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants.”

NOTICE THEY’RE REFERRING TO IT AS A “CHRISTMAS PARTY?”…THINK THEY’LL HAVE TO ISSUE A RETRACTION?

[CtH:  Methinks those who attend will somehow manage to soldier through their devastating disappointment. ::snork::]

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Has Best Response Ever To CNN Boycotting The White House Christmas Party

“Christmas comes early! Finally, good news from @CNN,” tweeted Sanders.

[CtH: ROFLLLLLLLLLLLL}

Tensions are running high between the White House and CNN after President Trump tweeted the news network represents America poorly around the world.
“@FoxNews is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!”, tweeted Trump on Saturday.

Ted Cruz Shuts Down Bernie Sanders’ Thoughts on Taxes, Socialism

I HEARD SOME AUDIO CLIPS OF THIS DEBATE THIS MORNING.  IF BERNIE SANDERS IS THE DEM NOMINEE IN 2020 THIS WILL BE FUN… HE HAS NO CLUE ABOUT THE REAL WORLD.

[CtH: It’s no surprise that Democrats seem to dominate in politics and academia, both places where they are largely protected from reality.]

Democrats have one talking point on taxes: ‘It’s a tax cut on the rich.’ And they say it over and over and over and over again in response to everything.

The most important thing for you to know when you’re at home is when they say rich, they mean taxpayer. Every time they say ‘rich’ they mean taxpayers. Why is it?

And the reason is there are not millionaires and billionaires to pay for all the socialism Bernie and the Democrats want.

Bernie really is feelin’ the burn on that one.

Black Lives Matter plans ‘black’ Christmas to ‘resist white capitalism’
Black Lives Matter Los Angeles called on people to refuse to buy from white-owned businesses and take that money to invest in the black community from Nov. 25 to Jan. 1. 2018. The boycott serves as an attempt to resist President Donald Trump and his ties to white capitalism, the group added.

[CtH: It might be more to the point for them to tell their people to stop destroying black owned businesses in their own communities.]

NBC News Fires Matt Lauer Over Allegations of Sexual Misconduct

SHOCK!!

Along with Charlie Rose at CBS, Lauer is the second morning anchor to lose his job over sexual misconduct allegations. Last month NBC fired political commentator Mark Halperin after numerous women claimed he had behaved inappropriately with them while he was working at ABC/Disney.

Lauer’s co-anchor, Savannah Guthrie, and Hoda Kotb opened Wednesday morning’s Today Show with a chyron that read “NBC News Terminates Matt Lauer.

Almost Every Graduate Of DC High School Was Truant, Yet All Of Them Were Accepted To College
The majority of graduating students at a Washington, D.C. high school did not attend more than six weeks of high school, but still managed to get into college, an investigation into the students’ records found.

The District of Columbia Public Schools system policy states that students who misses a class more than 30 times should fail that class, according to WAMU.

Despite these absences, all of the 2017 seniors got into a college, a feat for which the school received high praise. One student said the class-wide acceptance was a repudiation of all those who said the school — where at one point only 3 percent of students met the reading standards — couldn’t do it.

Some teachers who spoke to the outlet said they felt they had to graduate failing students due to pressure from the high school administration. Other teachers said the lack of expectations allowed students to do what they wanted and not show up for class.

Bernie Sanders Was Just Nominated for a Grammy
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may not have won the Democratic nomination for president, but he was just nominated for a Grammy Award. Sanders, along with actor Mark Ruffalo, received the nod for the audiobook recording of Sanders’ book “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In” in the category of Best Spoken Word Album.

Barack Obama won the Grammy in 2006 for “Dreams From My Father” and in 2008 for “The Audacity of Hope.” Bill Clinton received the honor in 2005 for “My Life.”

NoKo Threat

Defense Sec. Mattis: North Korea ICBM launch “went higher than any previous shot they’ve taken,” part of effort to build missiles “that can threaten everywhere in the world.”

Sensible people took to prayer. Democrats howled at the uncaring sky.

In Case You’re Not Keeping Up

There’s a battle raging in D.C. that you may not be aware of or even fully understand. Here’s an attempt to simplify things a bit.

Consumer Protection Finance Bureau … that’s the last time I type that because pecking away at this keyboard I’m 8 thumbs and two middles fingers. Henceforth it is now simply CFPB.

This dirty little deed came about during the Dodd-Frank disaster that ruined the economy and led to the ascent of one Barack Obama. Lieawatha Warren was once the head of this thing.

Rush can summarize it far better than I can:

Democrats Set Up Unconstitutional CFPB to Launder Money for Liberal Causes

 

Rush:  The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This is another little liberal enclave that was established by liberal Democrats, including Elizabeth Warren, that was set up as an agency that was unaccountable to anyone. It even had a budget that was unaccountable to the U.S. budget. Barney Frank and Chris Dodd set this thing up and Elizabeth Warren was the real driver of this particular organization, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

This was an independent agency set up to be able to legally get money from the financial industry and then turn around and give it to left-wing activist groups. And that’s what they were doing with it. And that’s why they are so desperate to hold on to it. The point is, it’s unconstitutional, and that’s the only thing that matters.

RICHARD CORDRAY, WHO IS STEPPING DOWN TO RUN FOR GOVERNOR OF OHIO, ILLEGALLY APPOINTED HIS UNDERLING, LEANDRA ENGLISH, AS ACTING DIRECTOR.  HE HAS NO AUTHORITY TO DO THAT.

Rush:  There’s something called the Federal Vacancies Reform Act which allows the president, who runs the executive branch, to appoint successors to people in federal agencies under the executive branch umbrella leaving. This thing was set up to be an independent agency accountable to no one. Its very existence is unconstitutional. The left knows it. That’s why they’re hell-bent, Cordray named this Leandra English to succeed him.

The money went to unions. The money went to states and teachers and union members to keep them employed during the Great Recession. The reason for that is, those people need to be employed in order to pay union dues. Union dues are collected from what they make and are sent in a circuitous route back to the Democrat Party in the form of campaign donations. So the stimulus was a substitute for Obama walking over to the Treasury and writing a check for $800 billion to the Democrat National Committee.

Consumer Bureau execs, workers gave 593 donations to Democrats, 1 to GOP

•$46,611 to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
•$13,190 to Sen Elizabeth Warren.
•$19,988 to President Obama.
•$10,075 to Democratic campaign committees.
•$1,129 to Sen. Bernie Sanders.

CFPB Joins Justice In Shaking Down Banks For Democrat Activist Groups
The CFPB plans to create a so-called Civil Penalty Fund from its own shakedown operations targeting financial institutions. Through ramped-up (and trumped-up) anti-discrimination lawsuits and investigations, the agency will bankroll some 60 liberal nonprofits, many of whom are radical Acorn-style pressure groups. It says these organizations will provide “financial coaching” for low-income homebuyers, as well as “housing and social services.”

Obama’s Department of Housing and Urban Development is also getting in on the act.

In a $200 million settlement with Associated Bank, which the agency accused of lending discrimination, HUD is forcing the Wisconsin bank to funnel tens of millions in “donations” to “community groups.”

This is extortion of private business by government. Congress’ new leadership must call on the agency’s inspector general and the Government Accountability Office to audit these pernicious payola schemes.

It turns out that Cordray, quite illegally, on his way out named his deputy, Leandra English, as the temporary director. When Mulvaney arrived at work Monday morning, he was forced to issue a memo saying “Please disregard any instructions you receive from Ms. English in her presumed capacity as acting director.”

Who is Deepak Gupta? Ex-CFPB employee emerges as leading anti-Trump litigator

This week, Gupta was in court representing Leandra English, who claims she is acting director Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. When Trump picked Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney to fill the position, English sued, arguing that as deputy director the law puts her in charge.

Secret Donors Are Financing Leandra English Lawsuit Against Trump

The D.C. lawyer appeared caught off guard when CNBC hosts asked who was financing his effort. He stumbled over his words in his first answer and said some form of unidentified “structure” was being put in place to accept funds from anonymous donors.

“Well, uh, it’s, it’s not, um, Miss, um English, um, ah. There are ethics lawyers that we’ve consulted, and we have a structure set up that is with ethics rules and, um, we’ll and we’ll be talking about that once we have that,” he told CNBC.

Elizabeth Warren leads protest to block Trump’s CFPB appointment

The CFPB, an agency created by the Dodd-Frank banking law that passed during former President Barack Obama’s first term, has become the focal point of a new fight over presidential authority in recent days

Maria Langholz of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, which helped organize the Tuesday protest, added in a statement that “Trump is trying to undermine the CFPB by breaking the rules to install a guy who is wholly unfit for the office and has numerous conflicts of interest.”

The CFPB Coup Attempt Is Over, Court Rules In Favor Of Trump Administration

A U.S. District Court judge in Washington handed a big victory to President Donald Trump, ruling in favor of the administration in its bid to install White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney as acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Judge Timothy Kelly denied a request by Leandra English, who was named last week as acting director by outgoing CFPB chief Richard Cordray, for a temporary restraining order to block Mulvaney from taking the post.

Kelly said there was not a substantial likelihood that the case would succeed on its merits.

Court Rules with POTUS TRUMP – Tells Far Left Hack to Clear Contents of Her Office into Box and Evacuate the Premises

Recent Trump appointee ruled today in favor of President Trump and rejected a lawsuit from an official who claims that she, and not President Trump appointee Mick Mulvaney, is the rightful director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

THANKS AGAIN TO HARRY REID FOR ALLOWING TRUMP TO APPOINT HONEST JUDGES… WINNING!

CFPB Acting Director Mick Mulvaney Orders 30-Day Hiring, Regulatory Freeze

Mulvaney declared that President Trump “wants me to get it [the agency] back to the point where it can protect people without trampling on capitalism.”

The hiring freeze came amidst a feud between current director Mulvaney and deputy director Leandra English, an Obama-era appointee to the CFPB, who argued that she remains the rightful director of the financial regulatory agency.

Former Rep. Frank: Dodd Frank Bill Vacancy Act ‘Not As Clear Cut As I Wish It Was’

WE SURE SCREWED THE PEOPLE OVER WITH THAT ONE, DIDN’T WE?

IN SHORT, THIS WAS AN ILLEGAL DEMOCRAT MONEY LAUNDERING ORGANIZATION THAT THE DEMOCRATS WERE DESPERATE TO HANG ON TO.  THEN ALONG CAME DONALD TRUMP.
