CFPB attempts a regulatory coup

first_imgThe attempt of the holdover leadership of the CFPB to extend its reign over the Bureau is the type of legal maneuver that lawyers love and that makes everyone else hate lawyers. At the end of the day, what the CFPB and its most zealous supporters will accomplish is nothing more than to underscore that the Bureau is an out of control Bureaucracy in desperate need of reform.When Richard Cordray announced that he was leaving the Bureau at the end of the month, speculation surfaced immediately that the trump administration would name former Congressman and current OMB Director Mick Mulvaney as its Acting Director. Considering that Mulvaney has been an outspoken foe of the Bureau, supporters of the Bureau were understandably upset; but in the words of our previous President, “Elections have consequences.”Fast forward to Friday. Director Cordray apparently was so anxious to get a jump on his Black Friday shopping that he announced that Leandra English who had previously served as the Chief of Staff as his Deputy Director. When Cordray announced his departure, he effectively designated her as his successor until his five-year term ends in July. In a statement explained that “we will continue to benefit from Leandra’s in-depth knowledge of the operational needs of this agency and its staff.” The White House responded with a statement naming Mulvaney as the Acting Director. English has already filed a lawsuitseeking to block Mulvaney from taking up this position. continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Speedy passing of jobs law contrasted with stalled sexual violence bill

first_img“It makes us wonder whether the government is really committed to bringing justice to the victims of sexual violence in this country.”She went on to say that the government and lawmakers appeared to have deliberately overlooked social justice issues currently plaguing the country by putting the omnibus law above other draft legislation that many deem more important for the public welfare, including the sexual violence eradication bill.“With the omnibus law, the government was most enticed by its economic incentives,” Andy added.In July, the House of Representatives excluded the sexual violence eradication bill from this year’s National Legislation Program (Prolegnas) priority list, citing difficulties in arranging the bill’s deliberation. The speedy passing of the controversial Job Creation Law has angered women’s rights activists and members of the public who have long awaited the enactment of the sexual violence eradication bill, the deliberation of which has been stalled for years at the House of Representatives.National Commission on Violence Against Women (Komnas Perempuan) commissioner Andy Yentriyani told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday that the sexual violence eradication bill had gone through a bumpy road over the past several years – in stark contrast to the omnibus law’s smooth sailing.“The deliberation of the sexual violence eradication bill began years ago in 2014, but the process has since continued at a snail’s pace,” Andy said. Read also: ‘Take all the time in the world to heal’: Agni’s message for victims of sexual assaultHouse Commission VIII deputy chairman Marwan Dasopang previously claimed the deliberation of the bill was “complicated”.In stark contrast, the House Legislation Body (Baleg) revealed that the deliberation of the Job Creation Law took place effectively from April 20 until Oct. 3 before the bill was passed into law on Monday. Lawmakers and the government held intensive meetings over the past months, even on weekends, to expedite the deliberation.Komnas Perempuan has called for the sexual violence eradication bill to be included in the 2021 Prolegnas, urging lawmakers to exert as much effort in the bill’s deliberation as in the passing of the omnibus law.Legislation that sides with the victims of sexual violence is vital, especially given that Komnas Perempuan received at least 46,698 reports of sexual abuse cases against girls and women between 2011 and 2019, according to the commission.“There is no excuse. The House must work hard to ensure the fairest law that protects and fulfills the rights of sexual abuse victims,” Andy told the Post.Eva Nur Cahyani of the Women’s Movement Alliance also demanded the House immediately deliberate the sexual violence eradication bill. “The refusal to deliberate the bill means that [the House] has turned a blind eye to victims of sexual abuse, the number of which has continuously increased every year,” she said as quoted by kompas.com.Members of the public have echoed a similar sentiment since the passing of the controversial jobs law as they took to social media to lament the interminable deliberation of the sexual violence eradication bill and condemned the government for putting their effort into rushing through the omnibus law instead.ruu pks udah berapa lama ga disahkan, tapi ruu cipta kerja / omnibus law cepet banget disahinnya, it’s obvious where their priority lies, it’s obvious they don’t care about the people, they only care about themselves and things that profited them— putri annisa (@putriaftrni) October 5, 2020“[The sexual violence eradication bill] has never been passed into law, whereas the omnibus law was completed very quickly. It’s obvious where [the government’s] priority lies,” Twitter handle @putriaftrni tweeted on Monday.Comedian Ardit Erwandha tweeted satirical remarks encouraging the government and lawmakers to keep turning a blind eye to public welfare as the omnibus law was completed at the expense of the sexual violence eradication bill.“Omnibus law was passed, while the sexual violence eradication bill remains ignored. […] Don’t think about our welfare, prioritize your interests,” @ArditErwandha wrote in the tweet.Topics :last_img read more

Chelsea v Tel Aviv preview: Mourinho tells journalist to Google after asking ‘stupid question’

first_imgJose Mourinho embarked on a war of words with a journalist at a Chelsea press conference telling the reporter to “click on Google” after asking a “stupid question”.The Chelsea manager remained defiant in the face of critics, with the club having lost three of its opening five games and languishing in 17th spot.The Blues play Maccabi Tel Aviv in their Champions League Group G opener on Wednesday, and a win would take some pressure off Jose Mourinho.”I have nothing to show, to anyone. Nothing,” Mourinho said at a news conference on Tuesday. “Nobody can steal what we are, nobody can steal our trophies, nobody can steal our history. We know what we are: Champions of England.”Porto, which Mourinho led to the Champions League title in 2004, and Dynamo Kiev are the other clubs in the group.Asked if he still has the qualities of a great manager, Mourinho replied: “The point is that the question is stupid. I am sorry.” The Portuguese manager, who joined the club in 2013 for a second spell, said losing is a “strange feeling” after his side’s worst start to a top-flight season in 29 years.Chelsea’s 3-2 victory away at West Brom in August is their only victory in the league so far.He added: “I promise you I am fine. I am not happy. I am not used to losing so many times but I am adapting to the situation.”You cannot expect me to say it is all smiles, laughing and jokes. When people are not getting success we work for, we are going to be frustrated.”We know what we are – champions of England. The fans sing that. Nobody can steal what we are or our trophies or our history, you can try but you can’t do that. “When you are used to winning all the time, then when you don’t it is a strange feeling. Some people deal well with it, others not as good.”–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySportslast_img read more

Indian athletes who are policing the streets during Covid-19 lockdown!

first_imgAdvertisement 2godNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vsb1v2Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Eeg2( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) jfWould you ever consider trying this?😱7fefCan your students do this? 🌚1ixcjRoller skating! Powered by Firework Persuading people to stay home amid a nationwide lockdown isn’t a very easy task, but some of these Indian athletes who are now accomplished police officers are playing a key role in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. 2007 T20 World Cup-winning allrounder Joginder Sharma, Commonwealth Games gold medallist boxer Akhil Kumar and Asian Games champion kabaddi player Ajay Thakur – have all earned the opportunity to serve their country through jobs in the service and are manning the streets during these testing times. Advertisement Under such critical times, these sporting heroes could’ve enjoyed their usual privileges; instead they decided to demonstrate their role as people of influence while proving to be of greater human resource than just being athletes.Advertisement In a recent interview, Joginder Sharma, Akhil Kumar and Ajay Thakur opened up about their challenges that come with “doing duty” during an unprecedented crisis.Joginder SharmaAdvertisement “I have been a DSP since 2007. This is one of a kind challenge for me as a police officer because of the general fear and I can tell you that I have seen quite a few challenges in my years of service,” said Sharma, who made history with the Indian Cricket team in the final against Pakistan in the 2007 T20 World Cup.“Our duty time starts around 6am and we do patrolling, making people aware, send those who are out for fun to their homes, help those in need of essentials or medical aid and take action against those who try to defy without any good reason,” said the 36-year-old former all-rounder, currently serving in Hisar, Haryana.“They respect me for my achievement and sometimes it helps my work when they see my nameplate. When I tell people to not crowd markets for cheap deals, they adhere. I tell them how costly it would be if they catch this infection, that they should not risk a deadly disease for saving a few bucks,” he added.Akhil KumarThis flamboyant bantamweight boxer who happens to be Sharma’s good friend is posted in Gurugram Police as ACP since September last year.“People are generally cooperative and, in any case, essential services are being kept open so there is not much panic. I believe only a strict enforcement of lockdown will be able to halt this virus. People are slowly understanding this,” said the 38-year-old who bagged gold in the 2006 Common Wealth Games.However, one of the most difficult duties for his department during these days is to control the young willful violators, or those who choose to ignore the situation.“There are some who genuinely don’t know but there are others who come out despite knowing what it means. I think they should be dealt with sternly, that’s the only language they understand,” he asserted.“I reach out to their parents. That’s the best way to make them understand because they are a little unaware of the gravity of the situation,” Kumar said.Ajay ThakurArjuna award winner Padma Shri Ajay Thakur is a DSP in Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh since 2017. The 2014 Asian Games gold-medallist recently shared a photo of himself patrolling the streets of the town, raising awareness about the crisis.“Please stay home save lives” wrote the 33-year-old on his Instagram account which has over two lakh followers! You may also like:Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma relay an important Coronavirus message to IndiaShoaib Akhtar’s message to the world in fight against Coronavirus: It’s time to rise above religion Advertisementlast_img read more
