CFPB: Trump targets a monster

By Monica Showalter November 26, 2017

President Trump has slammed the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as a "total disaster" and rightly objects to a second leftist taking the place of outgoing leftwing director Richard Cordray. His battle is just the tip of the iceberg surrounding this federal agency that shouldn't even be there in the first place.   What Trump is battling is an unaccountable agency run by the Democrats and for the Democrats with the aim of funding more Democrats. It's a shakedown racket targeting banks and other moneybags businesses based solely on the size of their assets to harvest from fines. It was never about protecting consumers. It was never about oversight. It just amounted to a slush fund for Democrats that as set up cannot be reformed.

A long, worthy piece by a Ronald L. Rubin, a former enforcement attorney at CFPB, in National Review, lays out the problems as only an insider's account can.  
Conceived as a government watchdog with noble aims, the CFPB was doomed by a structure that made it an inherently political agency.
is how he summed this leftist racket up............... Then its creators designed the agency so that no Republican could ever enter it.............. Rubin describes how the agency systematically discriminated against Republican hires through wink and nod hiring processes and got away with it.............And that cash they extracted goes solely to Democrat groups............their activities are more political than charitable...........With a setup like this and no possibility of reform or a change of emphasis through elections, is there any reason to keep this agency around?............Throw the whole thing out........To Read More.....
My Take - One thing the Democrats understand - and understanding the Republican elite fail to grasp or don't care - is the Deep State, or Swamp as it were, exists only because there a massive number of federal bureau, agencies and departments that keep them funded as bureaucrats. 

But, just as in the Roosevelt administration  - which created a massive federal bureaucracy filled with Soviet agents, socialists of one type or another and fellow travelers, and yes Joe McCarthy was right - all these government agencies are filled with leftists with the goal of overturning the U.S. Constitution and imposing a socialist state on the American people. 

All in collusion with those international socialists desiring to create socialist world government under the auspices of the United Nations.   The only fix to the Deep State is to eliminate most of the federal government.  Getting rid of the EPA, Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management and OSHA would be a good start. 

Here's a list of all the government agencies.  If no one has an objection - After the four I mentioned - start eliminating them alphabetically.
