Media Attacks Mick Mulvaney’s Salary, But Trump White House Saves Taxpayers Millions

Published

on

White House “acting” chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and his team are at the top of the pecking order when it comes to White House salaries — and deservedly so.

The mainstream media is targeting Mulvaney’s paycheck in their ongoing quest to disparage the Mick, even though President Trump’s White House spending cuts have saved the American taxpayer $19.8 million compared to Barack Obama’s White House at this point in the Democrat’s presidency. In that previous White House, First Lady Michelle had twice as many staffers as current First Lady Melania.

Politico reports: “The highest paid staffer in the Trump White House…It’s one of acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney’s closest aides and his de facto spokesman inside the West Wing, whose official title is senior adviser to the chief of staff for strategy and stakeholder engagement…Mulvaney also benefits from earning a higher salary as a West Wing staffer detailed from an agency. Technically, he is still on loan from the budget office and earns $203,500.”

The establishment treats Mulvaney much like John F. Kennedy’s great adviser Kenny O’Donnell, whom they referred to as a lynchpin of the so-called “Irish Mafia.” But Mulvaney’s results speak for themselves.

Before beating Jared Kushner for chief of staff, Mick already made his name in the administration for unilaterally firing the entire 25-member Consumer Financial Protection Bureau advisory board. His work as chief of staff has kept Trump more tethered to reality, popping the Washington bubble — unlike Stephen Miller, whose young friend Sylvia May Davis puts Bill Kristol white papers on the president’s desk. Tucker Carlson has established himself during the Mulvaney Age as the only rightful Fox News primetime adviser for the president, steering Trump out of imminent war with Iran.

Mulvaney helped Trump set the all-time record for longest government shutdown, serve McDonald’s in the White House, declare a national emergency to build the Wall, and veto both houses of Congress when they tried to stop the national emergency to build the Wall. Now, the Wall’s fate will almost certainly be decided by the Supreme Court — where Trump has placed two justices, just two of the more than 100 judges that he has successfully seated to the bench.

Minnesota Had Record Numbers of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in 2020

Red or blue, Americans nationwide are getting strapped.

Gun sales have boomed all across America. And it’s not just the Red states. Blue states like Minnesota have also witnessed an increase in the number of concealed carry permits issued. 

According to Valley News Live, over 96,000 permits were issued in 2020, which represented the highest number of permits issued since carry permits became legal in 2003. Furthermore, 2020’s numbers represented a twofold increase from 2019 in the number of permits issued. 

Tom Knighton of Bearing Arms noted that roughly “400,000 permits have been issued in total in a state of just over 5.6 million people.”

The Valley News Live piece actually conceded that the increase in permits issued was largely the result of a “ rise in violent crime in the Twin Cities and the civil unrest that followed the death of George Floyd.”

Minneapolis was the epicenter of social unrest after the death of George Floyd in late May 2020. With calls to defund the police and irresponsible political leadership that refused to decisively crack down on crime, Minnesotans began to take matters into their own hands.

Gun owners are ultimately the most effective first responders in times of crisis and overall breakdowns of social order. Minnesota’s gun laws are actually quite strict, which has earned it dismal rankings in Guns & Ammo magazine’s rankings for Best States for Gun Owners (39th place) and Best States for Concealed Carry (37th place). Regardless of the sub-optimal gun policies, Minnesotans still instinctively understand the importance of the right to carry.

2020 was a big year for gun sales and showed that the right to bear arms still has a massive constituency of people that can be targeted and activated for future occasions. Serious Republican campaigns should recognize this trend and make targeting gun owners a major priority throughout their get out the vote programs.
