Ted Cruz Introduces One-Line Bill To
Abolish Warren’s Consumer Agency

Daily Caller, by Thomas Phippen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/15/2017 11:13:47 AM

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz introduced a one-page bill Tuesday to abolish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the darling of Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. The Repeal CFPB Act, which Cruz and four other Republican senators sponsored, would repeal the Consumer Protection Act of 2010, the part of the Dodd-Frank bill that created the CFPB and granted it sweeping authority over banks, money lenders and financial institutions. “Don’t let the name fool you, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau does little to protect consumers,” Cruz said in a statement. “During the Obama administration, the CFPB grew in power and magnitude

A nice start. Here are some other one-sentence bills which Congress should vote one - -

• The federal government shall have no involvement whatsoever in the health insurance business.

• The federal government shall have no involvement whatsoever in the education business.

• The federal government shall have no involvement whatsoever in the pension business.

• The federal government shall have no involvement whatsoever in the housing market

• The federal government shall have no involvement whatsoever in what individuals choose to ingest

There are lots of others - - but those will make a pretty good start.

Good start hope it passes. Now if someone would do the same for Senator Kennedy´s odious 1965 immigration bill allowing only people of color from third world hellholes into the country!

Very risky bidness....writing Bills in common language and brutal brevity.

Most laws gird themselves with reams of protective weasel words and opt-outs.

Cruz keeps it simple so that the INSULT to the Left is not lost in the shuffle.

And there, my friends,” declared our guide, gesturing out at a sprawling mountain view, “is where we will soon see The Great Wall of Trump.” Everyone laughed. Then we stared. We were in West Texas, high in the Chinati Mountains — yes, Virginia, there are mountains in Texas — and it was hard to imagine a giant wall smack dab in the middle of that fantastic view. But there it was, in the thick of rugged desert beauty few Americans trek out to see: a gigantic, imaginary line, primed, if our enthusiastic president gets his wish, for a “big, beautiful

Former Cornyn challenger wins … bail?

At one point, Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX) thought he could serve at least one six-year term in the US Senate when he challenged incumbent John Cornyn in Texas’ 2014 Republican primary. Now Stockman’s looking at a five-year term in Club Fed, thanks to an FBI and FEC probe of his campaign finances. Stockman appeared in federal court yesterday, accused of funneling money from a non-profit to his own personal and political use, and the judge offered Stockman some advice after setting bail (via The Blaze):(snip for video) He is accused of conspiring to violate federal election laws during his last

In the third week of January, an Israeli named Yoni Ariel flew from Tel Aviv to Rome carrying $9,000 in cash on a secret mission to bring down Donald Trump. There, he met with an Italian businessman. Seated at a table toward the rear of a café, away from the street where they might attract unwanted attention, Ariel recalled, he handed over the cash. In exchange he was given a copy of a potentially explosive set of documents. Its 35 pages told the story of a $1.6 billion wire transfer from petroleum giant ExxonMobil to a European office of a Chinese mining

Hardly a day has passed since the 2016 election without several “Save the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau” editorials. They are irrelevant. Only the agency’s director, Richard Cordray, can save the CFPB — by resigning. The op-eds all defend what the CFPB was supposed to be rather than what it became. To sell the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act that created the bureau, then-professor Elizabeth Warren and other Democrats promised a professional law-enforcement agency whose mission was to prevent financial-services companies from defrauding consumers through deceptive advertising and indecipherable contracts. A unique organizational structure — a president-appointed single director removable only for cause

Few Americans know the power of the administrative state better than a man America met a few years ago when he performed on a reality TV show. It was the summer of 2013, and it was episode 806 of “America’s Got Talent,” an “American Idol” knockoff with hosts Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, and Howie Mandel. Up to the microphone stepped a 36-year-old man — acoustic guitar in hand — dressed in jeans, a tucked-in khaki shirt, and a pair of brown cowboy boots. His name was Jimmy Rose. He was born in a town called Pineville, in Bell County, Kentucky —

The indoctrination to love and live Texas begins at a young age in the Lone Star State. Beginning in early childhood, Texans learn to “Remember the Alamo,” chant the seemingly infinite lyrics to “Deep in the Heart of Texas,” and recite the pledge of allegiance to the Texas flag—after, of course, pledging to the American flag. Most people quickly learn to “hook ‘em,” “gig ‘em” “sic ‘em” or put their “guns up” based on family loyalties to their respective Texas universities. But “Don’t mess with Texas” is a phrase that inspires Texans of all regions and all alma maters and incites

Preet Bharara, the crusading U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York who was asked to submit his resignation letter Friday, along with the 45 other U.S. Attorneys held over from the Obama administration, has yet to do so, a federal law enforcement official tells The Daily Beast. Bharara—whose office is in the end stages of an investigation of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, about to begin the trials of two close allies of Governor Andrew Cuomo, and also appears to be investigating how Fox News structured settlements of sexual harassment and other claims brought by its employees—met

No good reason for angry Americans

Posted By: StormCnter- 3/9/2017 4:17:35     Post Reply
Reasonable, decent people should be really angry about how angry everybody is. In today´s America, there really is no good excuse for mass anger. So the mass anger we see from left, right and center is so out of line that it should really make us mad. Oh, and everybody else should just shut up when they insist that anybody else shut up. I mean, just shut up already. Let´s first consider the anger. In America today, materially speaking, life is good. Damn good. As I´ve reported elsewhere, household incomes are actually higher than they were when people were celebrating Ronald Reagan´s booming mid-1980s

Wind Energy Takes Flight In

Georgetown, Texas, is a conservative town in a conservative state. So it may come as something of a surprise that it´s one of the first cities in America to be entirely powered by renewable energy. Mayor Dale Ross, a staunch Republican who attended President Trump´s inauguration, says that decision came down to a love of green energy and "green rectangles" — cash. When Georgetown´s old power contract was up in 2012, city managers looked at all their options. They realized wind and solar power are more predictable; the prices don´t fluctuate like oil and gas. So, a municipality can sign

The half-hour ride from Marfa to Alpine was uneventful. My husband, our son, and I had crammed into the single-cab truck one Saturday, chattering about school and 4-H projects while on the way to the feed store. In Alpine we bought alfalfa and returned to the vehicle, where Huck, who was about eleven years old at the time, opened the passenger door. Instead of climbing in, he abruptly jumped backward into my chest, nearly toppling us both. “Snake!” he stammered. “There’s a snake.” And, lo, reader, indeed there was a snake. As we peered into the cab and opened the door

In April, millions of tiny flowers spread over the blackjack hills and vast prairies in the Osage territory of Oklahoma. There are Johnny-jump-ups and spring beauties and little bluets. The Osage writer John Joseph Mathews observed that the galaxy of petals makes it look as if the “gods had left confetti.” In May, when coyotes howl beneath an unnervingly large moon, taller plants, such as spiderworts and black-eyed Susans, begin to creep over the tinier blooms, stealing their light and water. The necks of the smaller flowers break and their petals flutter away, and before long they are buried underground.

Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security.

Others were seen lying in the road on Westminster Bridge, where reports suggest around six people were knocked down by a car.

Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move

Mr. Comey’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee created a treacherous political moment for Mr. Trump, who has insisted that “Russia is fake news” that was cooked up by his political opponents to undermine his presidency. Mr. Comey placed a criminal investigation at the doorstep of the White House and said officers would pursue it “no matter how long that takes.” (Snip) The New York Times and other news organizations
