Potential Presidential Candidate
Elizabeth Warren at Center of
CFPB Scandal

Breitbart Big Government, by Chriss W. Street

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/5/2014 2:11:27 PM

Possible presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who came up with the idea and led the start-up of the “Consumer Financial Protection Bureau” as a federal watchdog to prevent financial institutions from abusing U.S. consumers, is now at the center of the a scandal regarding the vanished authorization to spend $215.8 million on a luxurious remodel that included a new penthouse floor and indoor waterfall for the bureau’s rented Washington, D.C. office space. The Office of Inspector General of the United States Federal Reserve (OIG) was requested by the House Financial Services Oversight and Investigations Committee on January 29, 2014,

Comments:
To put things in perspective. That $215.8 million in renovation costs for the renovation of one building for one department, is almost as much as the Vatican´s entire operating budget for an entire year.

And - almost as much as the Obama family vacation budget.

In a rented office space! Wonder who owns the building and what the remodel will do for his property values.

You didn´t build that Pocantas, Squatting Bull, Elizabeth, Queen of the Cherokee Nation... a fool and a ... congenital liar, like her opponent Hitlary. What scum they are. They love money... yours. Warren prostituted herself to big corporate when she could make a dime... Her herstory (ha) is a disgrace. Follow the money and you´ll find EW and her ilk.. Think John Edwards, ambulance chaser extrodinaire... Her house in Cambridge bepeaks her love of luxury and pursuit of power... at other people´s expense, of course...

he whole Frank/Dodd bill which led to this stupid room addition,isn´t getting the blame it deserves in destroying the economy.People are getting rich flipping assets,not creating jobs and growing the economy.Small banks are being swallowed up everywhere on the path to central banking.LOFO subprime car loans are starting to pile up defaults.

People like Warren believe they´re doing such a great job as a puplic servant,ordering something like this to be build is just a small showing of gratitude.

How sad to know that each of us work every day to send tax money to Washington and they work every day to waste it.

Would love to know who owns that building. This deal stinks to high heaven.

Firstly, a government agency does not need the "Taj Mahal" to operate out of.

In real life, where real tenants and real landlords negotiate a new lease the landlord will do the necessary renovation/new tenant fit out. The landlord pays for the typical tenant fit out and special above standard features would be paid by the tenant. Built into the lease is the landlord´s recapture of his expenditures over the term of the lease.

Greece, NY - A recent U.S. Supreme Court decision brought a lot of attention to Western New York Tuesday night. Efforts to maintain separation of church and state took center stage in the Rochester suburb of Greece where an atheist delivered the invocation to open a town board meeting.

The differences between Hamas and Israel are so profound, it’s almost as though the two aren’t living in the same century. The Hamas war against Israel pits cheap rockets — basically the 21st-century version of an exploding cannonball — against a high-tech military so sophisticated, it can send harmless “door-knocking” bombs to land on the roofs of buildings to warn its targets inside that the next live bomb will level the place.

The administration of Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy (D-WFP) has denied a request from federal officials to temporarily house up to 2,000 illegal immigrant children from Central America at a residence in his state for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Citing concerns about the condition of the aging Southbury Training School, the difficulties associated with caring for over 300 developmentally disabled clients, and legal and procedural hurdles, Connecticut’s state Office of Policy and Management (OPM) wrote to the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) New England regional offices on Monday, indicating that Connecticut could not assist them.

The World Health Organization is reporting that the rate of HIV infection among young gays is growing so rapidly the agency is recommending for the first time that men who have sex with men take anti-viral drugs as a preventative. Gay men in their twenties are too young to remember the panic in the gay community when HIV/AIDs was first discovered in the 1980s. With the advent of anti-viral drugs that make HIV, at least until the disease mutates, chronic but manageable, young men may be taking more chances sexually. Couple that with the general belief among all young men

Missouri Governor Signs Bill to

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) has signed legislation that provides for a task force to write new education standards that will eventually replace the Common Core in his state. Nixon’s office announced his approval of the measure Monday, the last possible day the governor could take action on bills passed earlier this year, local news KMBC.com reports. The Republican-led Missouri legislature, which has battled the standards since their adoption in 2010, approved HB 1490 23-6 in the state Senate and 135-10 in the state House. Originally, the bill was intended to ban the Common Core standards entirely. Increasing numbers of

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Tuesday asserted the Southern border is secure despite the massive surge of illegal minors from Central America that has overwhelmed federal agencies. “The border is secure,” he told reporters after the Senate Democrats’ weekly policy lunch. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich [D-N.M.] talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.” Reid said lawmakers need to worry less about border security and focus instead on President Obama’s $3.7 billion request to help process the tens of thousands of children from Honduras, Guatemala

An internecine battle has broken out between the Obama administration and the School Nutrition Association (SNA) over the federal government’s requirements for school meal programs. The fight has gotten so nasty that Michelle Obama’s food policy czar, celebrity chef Sam Kass, who handed out awards at the SNA´s annual convention in 2012, was refused permission to speak at this year´s convention, held in Boston this week and attended by approximately 6,500 school nutrition workers.

No one from True The Vote, the highest profile organization targeted by the IRS in the scandal involving improper scrutiny of conservative-leaning non-profits, has been interviewed by the FBI or investigators from the Department of Justice, according to the group’s President, Catherine Engelbrecht. This stunning revelation comes just days after Attorney General Eric Holder rebuffed the suggestion that an independent investigation is needed into the growing scandal. Holder told ABC News this weekend that a special investigation was unnecessary because “career people” and FBI agents were “doing a good, professional job” investigating the matter.

The New York Times editorial board believes the border crisis is merely "a myth." In a weekend editorial, the Times said the "White House is getting it mostly right" on immigration and blasted Republicans, who are "throwing up roadblocks" with "dangerous overreaction." The Times praised the Obama administration´s request for $3.7 billion in aid to deal with a crisis they think is a "myth." "The besieged border is a myth, and the arrival of a few thousand weary refugee children on buses does not make the myth true," the Times wrote.

Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this.

The Foul Four — who beat sexual-misconduct charges — can’t be fired by the Department of Education because they are entitled to job protections under state tenure laws, which require “due process.” Educators are entitled to a trial with an independent hearing officer who decides whether any misconduct warrants termination.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
