The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is Unconstitutional, and is Stealing Money from the U.S. Treasury.

When Congress created The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, they put Elizebeth Warran, in charge of setting it up. It was set up so that funding was not provided through congressional appropriations but it would receive all its funding directly from the U.S. treasury. How and why Congress would do this is the big question. This would be handing the agency its own power and it would not being answerable to anyone, even to Congress!

The agency was set up by the Democrats in answer to the Home Loan Bubble Collapse in 2008, later followed by the Foreclosure Crises in 2010. How is this agency even legal if we are calling this, our government, a democracy? If this is allowed to stand as is, it gives the agency its own power and makes it untouchable, not subject to any congressional control or oversight, which leaves it wide open for all kinds of corruption. In a democracy this should not even be possible, due to our constitution which says in Section 1, article 7 that only the Congress alone has the right and duty to distribute funds to a government agency.

After Richard Cordray announced his resignation on November 24, President Trump, appointed Mick Mulvaney, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to serve as Interim Director of the CFPB until the Senate can confirm a new replacement.

Leandra English, said, “Not so fast, this is my seat!” English came to work and told all the staff she was the one in charge and the rightful director, having been given the position by the previous director.

Mulvaney also came to work and set up his office and then sent a memo out to everyone telling them to disregard any memo coming from Leandra English, that she was not the person in charge. English then went to court and immediately filed a case to try to stop Mulvaney and make the case that she was the rightful Director.

If the court determines that the set up of the agency is unconstitutional (and if we are calling this a democracy it would be.) thus it would be illegal. The whole question of whom is in charge of the agency will not matter, and they will have to shut it down. The idea that an agency can just dip into the U.S. treasury with no oversight, begs the question, who is really in charge and who authorizes these transactions if not congress? Do the we really want agencies taking money from the U.S. Treasury with no congressional oversight at their own discretion? Who decides how much money they take? Doesn’t the U.S. treasury belong to the American Republic?

I think this agency is stealing money from our Treasury. After all, there is no congressional no oversight, they are just dipping into the treasury, taking whatever they want, whenever they want it and using it for their left wing liberal agenda. It needs to be closed. Fire everyone President Trump.

34th Annual Monte Vista Crane Festival

Monte Vista, Colorado: 34th Annual Monte Vista Crane Festival

March 10-12, 2017

January 4, 2017 – Its nearing that time again when tens of thousands of sandhill cranes descend upon Colorado’s scenic San Luis Valley to feed and rest up for the journey further north to their nesting grounds. It’s a wildlife phenomenon akin to the celebrated march of the penguins in Antarctica. But instead of the penguin’s gakkering and growling, birdwatchers hear the trumpeting of five, six and ten thousand cranes, whose rattling call sounds something like a cross between a tiger’s purr and pigeon’s coo.


“When you have 5,000 cranes all making their rattling calls, it can be deafening,” says Scott Miller, wildlife biologist for the Monte Vista national Wildlife Refuge, where most of the 25,000 cranes congregate in early spring.


The silver-colored cranes stand 4-feet-tall and don a distinguishing red forehead and russet-flecked wings. They feed in the nearby fields by day and roost in the refuge’s wetlands by night. Sandhill cranes mate for life, Miller says, so visitors often see the bird’s ritual courting dance. “They jump up and down, flapping their wings and moving their necks,” he says. “They’re these big lanky birds yet their dance is so graceful.”

Folks who arrive early to the wetlands are often privy to another amazing spectacle when the cranes launch en masse at daybreak and head to their feeding grounds. “When they liftoff, it’s pretty incredible,” Miller says. “You can hear their wings and the sound of rushing wind.”

This year’s Monte Vista Crane Festival includes sunrise and sunset tours, photography workshops, raptor tours, fieldtrips to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Penitente Canyon and more. There’s a daily craft and nature fair with local artists, and Friday night’s movie is “Hoot”—about a group of young friends on a mission to save burrowing owls. The 2017 keynote speaker is avid birder and Colorado Breeding Bird Atlas illustrator, Radeaux (
