An attempted Coup is taking place at the CFPB


The deep state is alive and well..but a new buckeroo is head of CFPB. If you have access to the NY Times piece its worth a look at the instant changes. Meanwhile the wizards at the agency are up to their old tricks. Here is what happened.

Inside the agency, change has been swift. Mr. Mulvaney briefly stopped approval of payments to some victims of financial crime, halted hiring, froze all new rule-making and ordered a review of active investigations and lawsuits. Some, he has indicated, will be abandoned.

“This place will be different, under my leadership and under whoever follows me,” Mr. Mulvaney More at the  New York Times

Employees within the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) are using encrypted messaging apps to conspire various ways of resisting acting director Mick Mulvaney’s agenda, according to a Tuesday report.

The group calls itself “Dumbledore’s Army,” a reference to a fictional secret cabal of young wizards in the children’s fantasy series “Harry Potter,” The New York Times reported.

“An atmosphere of intense anxiety has taken hold,” employees said, according to The NYT. “In some cases, conversations between staff that used to take place by phone or text now happen almost exclusively in person or through encrypted messaging apps.”

The Cause of Action Institute, a nonprofit devoted to “public advocacy and legal reform tools to ensure greater transparency in government, protect taxpayer interests and promote economic freedom,” has filed a Freedom of Information Act request for records related to information about the use of encrypted messaging apps by CFPB employees.

    Interesting! After the court decision the CFPB said this battle was not over even though the ruling could not be challenged and now we are seeing what they meant.

    I could be wrong, this isn’t my field of even close expertise, but I have found Mulvaney highly intelligent and articulate every time I’ve heard him open his mouth. And tough. Disappointed, but not surprised, that the slant the NY Times is giving is this “Mulvaney doesn’t want to protect us from corrupt banks and those poor employees within are sad and trying to work against him and for the people!” Or do you read it differently than I? I hope you do and I’m wrong.

    Yes, Mulvaney isn’t a fan of this CFPB and I find him smart enough to be forced to agree with him because that’s how he thinks!…but do we not need some kind of watch dog to prevent things like the Spanish situation discussed in the NY Times link?

    Still….Mulvaney is good……..am hoping someone can FINALLY articulate WELL what he’s trying to do instead of his staying quiet and letting the NY Times bat him around…….

      I think Mulvaney will rock it….I thought the Times was worth looking at their slant…plus the quotes. The best hing that could happen would be for the agency to be closed down. We have lost so many Community banks because ot them

        That was very likely the ulterior motive. For the big banks it’s nothing more than a pesky fly to be swatted away.

    Not unlike the Depts of Education and Energy, this boondoggle agency should be shut down at once and its employees arrested. A stick in the eye of the Cyclopes is more than warranted here. Come on Donald put on your big boy pants and drain that damn swamp!

        His low profile and inaction is sure to secure a lucrative position in any number of D.C. Law firms once he’s out of the administration. What other explanation is there?

      That has been on my mind as well….why did he retire? It was at the time of all of those harrasment allegations. Could be his health I suppose, but that is too simple.

    Each and everyone of those folks need to be arrested and charged as enemy of the state. I know, they are unknown at this time, but when they are found, arrested and charged. I read that article yesterday, and boy, let me tell you, my blood boils. AND I would say that if that was Obama in office and folks were trying to overturn his agenda. Enemy.of.the.state.

      As I have commented before, change the law so they can be fired, in the mean time post them to Alaska.
