Trouble for Pocahontas II in Leftist Massachusetts

Mick Mulvaney turning Elizabeth Warren’s dream into a nightmare

by Thomas Lifson at American Thinker:

“Mick Mulvaney has rapidly become one of my favorite federal executives.  In addition to Mulvaney heading the Office of Management and Budget, President Trump appointed him to the job of running the former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), when Elizabeth Warren’s handpicked head of the agency resigned to run for office.

Warren had designed the bureau to be immune from congressional oversight by funding it with Federal Reserve money so as to not be dependent on appropriations.  Warren also planned to keep the bureau in the hands of dedicated leftists by having the bureaucrats name a successor instead of the president.  But President Trump appointed Mulvaney instead and won the fight, as Mulvaney continues as “interim” director and is implementing vast changes.  Suddenly, all the independence designed by Warren has turned into a nightmare.

When Mick Mulvaney served in the House, he tried to warn colleagues that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was too independent of Congress.  Now that he’s running the CFPB, Mulvaney wants to demonstrate just how correct he was.  For the second straight day, the acting director has told a congressional panel that he can just sit in front of them all day and ignore their questions, and there’s nothing they can do about it[.]

It was such a nice touch that Mulvaney directed his refusal to answer questions to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the godmother of this hideous operation, leaving her licking her wounds and yelling of her care about consumers, which was never the point of the CFPB, as it has always been just a leftist slush fund.

Now comes news that Mulvaney is proceeding with his demolition of Warren’s dream by renaming her baby.  Joseph Lawler reports in the Examiner:

From the time its doors opened in 2011, the agency was known as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.  Usually, people just called it “the CFPB.”

Yet those terms, which adorn the agency’s headquarters, make up its website URL, and are used in its Twitter handle, aren’t technically in the law that created the bureau, the 2010 Dodd-Frank reform law.  And so Mulvaney changed them.

Late last month, the agency published a blog post announcing that it had devised a new seal for the agency.  The seal is a neoclassical emblem similar to other federal agencies’, featuring an eagle and the name of the agency: The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection.

Here is the new seal:

I was always against the CFPB name because those already were the initials of The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a mechanism for funneling taxpayer dollars into PBS and NPR programming, which in practice has been yet another example of government funding for left-wingers.

As with his flouting of Senator Warren’s attempts to question him, Mulvaney is getting in the faces of the lefties by using the law Warren designed against them:

That, Mulvaney explained during congressional testimony on Wednesday, “is the formal name of the CFPB — the CFPB technically doesn’t exist.”

A representative for the agency added Friday that the name change “furthers the acting director’s stated goal of hewing closely to the statute.”

That logic appeals to one of the bureau’s top congressional critics, House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling.

“Agencies should follow the law,” the Texas Republican said through a spokesman when asked about the new name.  “I commend Acting Director Mulvaney’s efforts to follow the law as written.”

A name change (or re-branding, as marketing people call it) usually is used as a symbol of change, so it is perfectly appropriate, given Mulvaney’s agenda.  It also changes the critical first word of the title from “consumer” to “bureau,” emphasizing that this is indeed another government bureaucracy with power over us.

Well played, sir.  The left can no longer presume that it is the master of image management.  Nor of unaccountable bureaucracies.

Today’s U.S. a Matter of the Chic!

Today’s 21st Century America is ruled by the undergraduate Chic…..Indoor animals, poorly educated throughout at Harvard and Yale, California at Berkeley,  St. Olaf, and Amherst, Middlebury and so on and etcetera.    They have been LIBERATED from knowledge;  INDOCTRINATED into feminism, black racism, Mexicana, Marxism, any  ism produced by feelings, anything anti-white suggesting equality.

Knowledge, invention over the past five centuries has been far too white, far, far to male.    History must be reinvented, made brief and equal among the world’s races.

And then there arrived this Donald Trump from the wastelands of New York City, a Presbyterian with a Bible…..a rarity over the past four generations of American wealth and disappearance of family.

I foolishly subscribe to the Wall Street Journal, a Trump hating institution of championship order.  On page C3 of today’s Saturday issue I read the opening paragraph to a story titled, THE AMAZING AMERICAN STORY OF THE ORIGINAL SIAMESE TWINS.

Written by a Yunte Huang.

ON HIS RECENT VISIT to California, President Donald Trump likened people who climb over barriers on the U.S.-Mexico border to “professional mountain climbers”

The metaphor was another instance of his ugly rhetoric against immigrants, but it contains, ironically, a grain of truth.  Throughout American history, almost all immigrants, legal or illegal, have indeed had  Mr. Trump would only need to look back at his own family’s immigration history to know the difficulties facin new arrivals. But few newcomers to the U.S. have crossed more daunting barriers than Chang and Eng Bunker, the original “Siamese Twins.”…..and then offers an interesting tale about Chang and Eng Bunker….likely not in truth the original ones.

Similar sleazy  introductions of the established leftist chics have become chic ever since the election of our America’s salvation President, Donald J. Trump.

Constant slams and slurs, nearly all contrived, are core in among the indoor chic means of communication.   These core are not yet of the Soviet Union style controlled communication to its public…..but it is a good start if you are a fascist or such now popular among the American Left or propagandizing  in the “liberal arts” world of your local school, college  or university, subscribe to a daily newspaper, or watch television news including nearly anything Fox.

Donald J. Trump is an  American, not an internationalist chic continuing forever to fleece our Nation.   As a matter of observation, there isn’t much chic in him all.

He speaks traditional American with perhaps a bit too much street color.

He is worried about the antiAmerican  fascists and racists in control of the nation’s communications these days.

 

 

TROUBLES WITH ABORTION

The Left Is Hunting for Scapegoats, and Using Rhetoric of Extermination

by John Zmirak  at the Stream

(article sent by Mark Waldeland)

. . . The god that thirsts for blood in Hoffman’s case is feminism, of course. She continues:

The act of abortion positions women at their most powerful, and that is why it is so strongly opposed by many in society. Historically viewed as and conditioned to be passive, dependent creatures, victims of biological circumstance, women often find it difficult to embrace this power over life and death. They fall prey to the assumption, the myth, that they cannot be trusted with it.

Victimism Unmasked

Here is Victimism in its absolute molar purity: We will kill babies, knowing they’re babies, because it makes us feel powerful. We will scapegoat them with violence, and pro-lifers with the threat of imprisonment. And we will feel justified, even proud of ourselves.

There are some ideas you can’t argue with. They only respond to prayer and fasting.

Is the existence of pro-life Americans a “crime against women”? Is a woman “at her most powerful” when she lies down for a doctor to kill her unborn baby? That’s what feminist author and abortionist Merle Hoffman thinks. In case you dismiss her as a crank, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman appears to agree with her. He joined her in a lawsuit aimed at ordinary Americans who stand on sidewalks outside clinics urging women not to choose abortion.

Does such language strike you as creepy, even menacing? Is it troubling that one of America’s largest states is on board with such sentiments, and targeting free speech? It should.

The act of abortion positions women at their most powerful, and that is why it is so strongly opposed.

The Ideology of the New Totalitarians

A coherent ideology goads such angry, escalating attacks. It explains why left-wing state governments get behind them. And why you can count on quick cooperation between advocates of wide, divergent causes. In the recent anti-gun march, Planned Parenthood was a sponsor. At anti-Israel events, you’re certain to meet some vegans. At climate change panic rallies, you’ll meet LGBT activists. In part that’s just trendsniffers who like to network. But something deeper underlies it.

I’ve already written here that the now dominant leftist academic movement called Intersectionalism works much like a religion. It explains why evil exists and offers false redemption. The sect gathers believers for passionate, and sometimes frenzied rituals. (Like last week’s gun-grabbing rally.) It identifies who’s orthodox, and tries to silence heretics. Most importantly, it performs its own sacrifices.

Help us champion truth, freedom, limited government and human dignity.Support The Stream »

Hunting Down Dissenters

For that, of course, it needs scapegoats. Jason Jones and I wrote here last week about how progressives find them. We pointed to the perverse power move called “Victimism.” It is

a method of political activism and control that perverts Christian ethics at their root. The Victimist who wants to wield power over others … identifies himself with the forces of justice. He will right the old wrongs. He’ll avenge those whose ancestors suffered in the past. What’s more, he will punish those who represent the old, onetime oppressors. That is, their innocent descendants, or those who simply share their race or sex.

Caught up in the Victimist temptation, today’s left weaves

a tissue of rationalizations for accumulating power, imposing collective punishment and scapegoating the innocent. White males must pay for the sins of their ancestors. Christians must be punished and marginalized because of events in the Middle Ages. Traditional families must pay for the self-loathing which sexual deviants suffer with. Europeans living in their own countries must be subject to violence and intimidation at the hands of Muslim interlopers who live on public welfare.

Abortionists Are Victimists

Fittingly, it’s on the abortion issue that Victimists out themselves most blatantly. It’s almost refreshing how shameless Hoffman is about admitting what she’s up to. She admits that abortion is “taking a life.” And she embraces that. She writes in her memoir:

Does the fetus not impede a woman’s tendency to maintain her own existence? Is it not an unjust aggressor, threatening the survival of the mother? Is not a woman’s choice of abortion an act of self-defense? … [T]hose who deliver abortion services have not only the power to give women control over their bodies and lives, but also the power — and the responsibility — of taking life in order to do that. Indeed, acknowledgment of that truth is the foundation for all the political and personal work necessary to maintain women’s reproductive freedom.

Just Ask the Aztecs

So yes, it’s human sacrifice. But sometimes that’s just what’s necessary to keep the sun coming up. Just ask the Aztecs.

The god that thirsts for blood in Hoffman’s case is feminism, of course. She continues:

The act of abortion positions women at their most powerful, and that is why it is so strongly opposed by many in society. Historically viewed as and conditioned to be passive, dependent creatures, victims of biological circumstance, women often find it difficult to embrace this power over life and death. They fall prey to the assumption, the myth, that they cannot be trusted with it.

Victimism Unmasked

Here is Victimism in its absolute molar purity: We will kill babies, knowing they’re babies, because it makes us feel powerful. We will scapegoat them with violence, and pro-lifers with the threat of imprisonment. And we will feel justified, even proud of ourselves.

Gulfman Cjack Advises Trump to Skip Trip to Torquemada Mueller, noted Philadelphia Gangster Aid!

—Mr. President, You Have No Good Reason to Meet with Torquemada Mueller, the Grand Inquisitor—
I have one great concern regarding the President’s misguided desire to meet with the ‘Special Counsel’ Robert Mueller; a dirty cop with a turbid legal history. The President has just lost his most sober attorney John Dowd who has been against Trump meeting with Mueller. And Dowd is right. Mueller has gotten Trump all worked up to a point where Trump’s anger is leading him to the trap; which is what Mueller wants him to do. Trump has to contain his anger, emotions, and passion. He has to be calm under fire. He does not have to meet with Mueller who will present a battery of questions to provoke him. This is to present Trump as a dangerous, irrational babbling fool, and a lair.
Trump has nothing to gain from this meeting. Mueller wants the President to contradict himself, to hesitate, to forget the facts (as presented by Mueller) and to come across as a man who cannot be trusted. From the beginning Mueller was in this plot to bring Trump down. Why? Because of the criminal activities of the Obama administration; activities high ranking officials at the US Department of State, FBI, CIA, and DOJ were involved in. Illegal activities Hillary Clinton, Mueller, James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, John Brennan and many others were involved in.

These treasonous, overzealous and corrupt activities involving staggering sums of money have compromised the safety and security of the United States. Oh yes, the Russian master spy Vladimir Putin trained in the art of seduction, bribery, murder, concealment and deception is holding more than a handful of IOU’s from high American government officials. He paid $145,000,000.00 dollars in exchange for the life of the American Republic. And in Iran the Mullahs picked up a cool $150 Billion to proceed with their development of weapons of mass destruction from the corrupt Obama administration. Get the picture? America the safety and security of the United Sates was for sale in one way or another. But Muller has to hide the truth from the American people by vilifying and framing our duly elected President who has promised to slay that ugly partisan ‘deep state’ octopus with its bipartisan political tentacles that are choking the nation.

Instead of the meeting with the nefarious Muller, the President should address the nation on TV and Radio to bring this plot to light to reveal Mueller’s devilish character and intention. Yes, our President should bring to light Mueller’s dishonest handling of the ‘Whitey Bolger’ case in Boston where he sent four innocent men to jail on the lies of the murderous Mr. Bolger and a corrupt FBI agent; four innocent men whose convictions were much later overturned but not before two died in jail. Trump should also mention the Anthrax case where Mueller knowingly pursued another innocent man by fabricating a case of lies from which the poor man was later exonerated.

Trump should also question Mueller’s role in that “Uranium One Deal” where Hillary Clinton and Obama agreed to sell 20% of our uranium deposits to a Russian Corporation (Rosatom), a business in which Vladimir Putin’s held a sizable financial interest. Can you imagine? This was a deal a deal to sell one-fifth of our uranium deposits with the approval stamp of the then Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and the ex-president of the U.S. Barack Hussein Obama! A deal that may have compromised the safety and security of United States. A deal for which the Russians were more than happy to donate a staggering $145,000,000.00 Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation; a deal which later added another $500,000.00 cash into the pockets of Mrs. Clinton’s husband, the ex-president of the U.S,. William Jefferson Clinton— for a speech to a cluster of bankers in Moscow, Russia.

In fact, it has been confirmed that massive sums from that enormous $145,000,000.00 donation was laundered through a crooked legal firm and the DNC to fund that infamous bogus “Dossier” that falsely accused the Trump campaign of colluding with the Russians to deny the deluded Mrs. Clinton the presidency of the United States. A fake document compiled by the British ex-spy Christopher Steele that has been used not only to impugn and malign the personal character of the President and to attack his family, but also to discredit members of the Trump presidential campaign.

Mueller is a dirty Cop! The President gains nothing by meeting with him, but could lose much if he does not prudently decline. Mueller has gone beyond his original mandate and is now trying to present Trump as a liar to justify his impeachment on the bogus charge of obstruction of justice for the firing of James Comey. Trump has to remain cool under fire and not allow himself to be set up.

Mueller will employ ‘military intelligence’ methods to get Trump to show inconsistencies in his replies. What Mueller will do is to repeat the same questions in different manners, at timely intervals. This is a very effective manner of interrogation. You see, under this method of interrogation you prick the person interviewed to gradually get him into increasing nervous choleric responses to a point where he contradicts himself. Alas! Obstruction of Justice! Didn’t I tell you?!

But Trump can turn the cards on Mueller only if he remains calm and responds, each time, with a question for Torquemada Mueller, the grand inquisitor.

For example: Mr. Mueller, are you not the man who has a history of fabricating charges against innocent men such as the four men you sent to jail in the State of Massachusetts on fabricated charges you weaved together from your criminal informant by the name of Whitey Bolger? …One of the most notorious murderers in the annals of crime in America.

And were you not the same prosecutor who accused an innocent man in the terrorist attacks known as the Anthrax Case; where that innocent man, who after you had destroyed his life, was found completely innocent of all charges? Yet neither you nor your partner in this infamy, James Comey, have had the decency to apologize to that innocent man and to the nation for such travesty? No, you would never apologize because you are a man without a conscience; a rogue prosecutor with no interest in the truth.

If I recall correctly, In the Bible, Jesus calmly responded to a provocateur, with a question to expose the hypocrisy of the provocateur. If Trump takes time to immerse himself in the life of the Nazarene, he’ll find the wisdom and the calm to confront his enemies.

Please note that the safety and security of the American Republic was auctioned off to ‘Czar Vladimir, the Terrible’ for a bucket of dollars by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. But we have no legal justification to honor said transaction because it was a rigged business affair, while the nation slept. However, unless we indict the perpetrators of this terrible crime, the grand inquisitor, “Torquemada” Mueller will slaughter the lambs.

Leftist Fascist CNN, MSNBC Promoted Russian Hate-Trump Rally

CNN AND MSNBC PROMOTED RUSSIAN ANTI-TRUMP RALLY

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

Who can keep up with the news these days? Not me. This story is a day old, but too entertaining to pass up: CNN and MSNBC promoted Russia’s anti-Trump rally in New York on November 12, 2016, just after the election. Scott has already noted that Michael Moore was a prominent figure at the Russia-sponsored rally outside Trump Tower. But Moore wasn’t the only one to fall in enthusiastically with the Russians’ anti-Trump theme:

A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour. Correspondents celebrated the idea that it was “a love rally,” and repeated the marchers’ anti-Trump mantras, such as: “We reject the President-elect.”
***
Of course, none of the networks were aware of who was allegedly behind the march, but CNN and MSNBC reveled in the inflammatory messages of the march. At one point, MSNBC anchor Alex Witt credulously responded to the ridiculously alarmist rhetoric: “That woman, when she’s saying she’s concerned that black people will be shot in the street….Is that a legitimate concern for her? Because, that’s scary.”

Correspondent Morgan Radford cheerfully played along: “Alex, it’s not only a legitimate concern for her, it’s a legitimate concern for a lot of people I’ve spoken to….They’re wondering if this [Trump’s election] is almost a license to carry in terms of hate.”

If the goal of the secret Russian organizers was to inject nonsense like that into the American political dialogue, then their unwitting helpers on CNN and MSNBC certainly gave them plenty of assistance that day.

Both CNN and MSNBC talked about who they thought was organizing the rally. On MSNBC a few minutes before the march began, anchor Alex Witt asked Radford: “Hey, Morgan, can you tell who has organized this rally?…Is there someone in charge here?”

Heh. We know now that the Russians were in charge. It is no surprise that our liberal media followed the Russians’ anti-Trump lead, just as they did with the nuclear freeze movement in the 1980s and the more recent anti-fracking campaign. American liberals have always been happy to be fooled, and few if any have ever expressed regret for parroting the Russian line, then or now.

Still, it is hard to take seriously the Left’s current mantra that Russia’s “meddling” is the greatest threat since 9/11 when leftists themselves have enthusiastically joined the Russian chorus when it suited their agenda.

There is entertaining video at the link.
