Both President Trump and Mick Mulvaney have had strong opinions about the CFPB in the past, with Mulvaney saying “It is a completely unaccountable agency, and I think that’s wrong,” and adding “If the law allowed this place not to exist, I’d sit down with the president to try to make the case that other agencies can do this job well if not more effectively.” Mulvaney also called the agency "a sad, sick joke."

Aside from the $5 billion "slush fund" detailed in the Post, the CFPB has also engaged in the following:

  • Bounced business owners and industry reps from secret meetings it’s held with Democrat operatives, radical civil-rights activists, trial lawyers and other “community advisers,” according to a report by the House Financial Services Committee.
  • Retained GMMB, the liberal advocacy group that created ads for the Obama and Hillary Clinton presidential campaigns, for more than $40 million, making the Democrat shop the sole recipient of CFPB’s advertising expenditure, Rubin says.
  • Met behind closed doors to craft financial regulatory policy with notorious bank shakedown groups who have taken hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal grant money to gin up housing and lending discrimination complaints, which in turn are fed back to CFPB, according to Investor’s Business Daily and Judicial Watch.
Moreover, the CFPB secretly assembled several massive consumer databases which raise privacy and corporate liability concerns. "One sweeps up personal credit card information and another compiles data on as many as 230 million mortgage applicants focusing on “race” and “ethnicity.”" reports The Hill. Another database contains over 900,000 unvetted grievances against financial companies, points out Alan Kaplinsky, lead regulatory attorney for Ballard Spahr LLP.

Think a database of google's depth, but used solely by the government.

Does this not apply to each and every fed.gov "agency?"

Unaccountable collectivism hath no bounds.

IRS - involuntary servitude
DOE - dumming down of our children
CIA - world's biggest drug smuggler
BATF - corrupt to the hilt
BLM - grabbing our land from us
FDIC - banksters phony insurance

And the list goes on & on.
