Trump is used to breaking the rules
with impunity. That will be his undoing.

The Week, by Paul Waldman

Original Article

Being rich is more pleasant than not being rich for many reasons, one of which is that the more money you have, the less society´s rules and obligations weigh on you. You slide through life using your wealth and connections to avoid the hassles and complications that occupy ordinary people, seldom having your choices impeded by what others or even the government demand of you. In theory the rules apply to everyone, but in practice there are almost always ways around them that are only available to a few. A wealthy person with a powerful conscience and moral foundation can avoid

"Clinton is used to breaking the rules with impunity. That will be her undoing."

For the life of me, I can´t figure out why we never saw this headline from the Enemedia. I´m sure they´ll correct their error...

Pretty pathetic boilerplate screed against wealthy people. "They do whatever they want" "They break the rules"

The author claims that Trump os against following "the rules" but what rules? There has been a multitude of investigations going on for a year. NONE OF THEM HAVE ANY EVIDENCE OF SIGNIFICANT CRIMES OR EVEN IMPROPRIETIES! What Trump is against is the perpetual investigation of him and his administration that has NO basis. No "rules" have been broken.

Further, politicians are worse abusers of power than rich people. Why? Because rich people can hire lawyers to find ways to get things done and make it happen. That´s not "breaking" rules but finding your way through government red tape. Politicians, like Hillary, have to sneak their way around DO break rules. Her Pay for Play Foundation is egregious. Her email server distributed classified info to A. Weiner. What has been done about those things?

Mueller is supposed to be unbiased but his assignment was due to Comey´s manipulations and he has staffed up with Clintoon lawyers.

It must be nice to live in Trump Derangement Land, like this author, where you can rail against anything and everything without reason.

In my experience as a general rule, wealthy people follow the rules much more obediently simply because they have so much more to lose. The real scofflaws are those who never made anything of themselves and, therefore, have nothing to lose. Prisons aren´t full of poor people simply because they couldn´t afford a better lawyer, its because they live in a mindset that says, what have I got to lose? Nothing.

But the other general class of scofflaws are the politically powerful. Your Clintons, Weiners, Pelosi´s, Obamas, Harry Reids, Maxine Watters, etc. of the world who know that, because of their party affiliation and it the pary´s relationship with the media and deep state, they can get away with murder (literally and figuratively).

Trump is a self-made wealthy non-Dimocrat non-politician. If he ever skirted the rules/laws, it was when he was donating the most to Dimocrats and so felt protected by the system they have going. Now he´s the opposite. He knows (or probably learned quite quickly) there´s no free ride for him.

"Who is the "they" of whom he speaks in the first tweet?"

"They" are people just like you, Paul, sitting around in your striped pajamas, drinking your hot latte-frappe-crappochino and reading the New York Times and the Washington Post so you can fry up your brain enough to repeat their fake news in snowflake-friendly language. Most of them don´t look like a genuine nerd like you do, Paul, but trust me, "they" are.

I expected the president to go through a period of adjustment from being the CEO of a business empire to the restrictions and very different requirements of the Oval Office. They are different worlds and he needed some time. But time is up. Now he must remember and concentrate on his presidential agenda.

Trump has not broken any rules. And I do not see any evidence here that Trump is "used to breaking the rules with impunity". On the contrary, Mr. Waldman, if you have ever been in business, which I doubt you ever have, there are hundreds of thousands of rules you have to follow, and the administrative offices are filled with compliance employees and professional advisers to get through it all. So this article is more fake news.

Prosecutor who opposes death penalty won´t

Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 8/20/2017 4:27:01     Post Reply
Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Saturday evening issued an executive order removing the case of two police officers slain in Kissimmee, Fla., from a prosecutor who had previously stated she opposes the death penalty. “Today, I am using my executive authority to reassign this case to State Attorney Brad King to ensure the victims of last night’s attack and their families receive the justice they deserve,” Scott said in the order. King will replace State Attorney Aramis Ayala, who argued earlier this year that the death penalty is not a deterrent and causes cases to drag on for years, inflicting anguish

Growing debate over the removal of Confederate monuments Debate is heating up throughout the country over what to do with Confederate statues and memorials. But it appears, at least for now, that 10 major U.S. Army bases will keep the names of Confederate soldiers. The Army refused to answer questions last week on whether those bases – including Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Hood in Texas, and Fort Benning in Georgia – will keep their names, the Charlotte Observer reported.

Last Sunday ABC News had absolutely no question about how to identify the van driver in Charlottesville: “REGISTERED REPUBLICAN.” I guess none of the terrorists in Barcelona yesterday were REGISTERED REPUBLICANS, but then, judging by the headlines last night, it’s somewhat unclear if a human being was even involved in this latest slaughter. Washington Post: “Van Rams into Barcelona Crowd.” MarketWatch: “Barcelona Truck Attack reportedly leaves at least 12 dead.” So was it a truck or a van that committed this atrocity? The New York Times at least said, “Van Driver Kills 13.” These Muslim terror attacks are like the old movie “Groundhog Day.” It’s

On July 18, 2015, about a month into his long-shot campaign for president, Donald Trump famously attacked John McCain. "He´s not a war hero," he said. "He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren´t captured." Campaigning in Iowa that summer, Trump mocked Jeb Bush for being "low-energy." In February 2016, Trump said Bush´s brother, the forty-third president, had lied in order to invade Iraq. When Mitt Romney attacked Trump the following month, Trump responded by calling the 2012 Republican nominee a "choke artist." On his path to the 2016 GOP nomination and then the

There´s a whiff of Weimar in the air. During the years of the Weimar Republic (1919-33), Germany was threatened by Communist revolutionaries and Nazi uprisings. Foreign Minister Walter Rathenau was assassinated, and violent street fighting was commonplace. Then Adolf Hitler took power in 1933. America is nowhere near that point. But many surely agree with The American Interest´s Jason Willick, who wrote Sunday that "this latest round of deadly political violence has" him "more afraid for" the United States than he has "ever been before." But as he pointed out, this political violence -- identity politics violence is a more precise term

A federal judge on Thursday ordered the IRS to name the specific employees the agency blames for targeting tea party groups for intrusive scrutiny and said the government must prove it has ceased the targeting. Judge Reggie B. Walton also said the IRS must explain the reasons for the delays for 38 groups that are part of a lawsuit in the District of Columbia, where they are still looking for a full accounting of their treatment.

The attempt to find systemic police bias has come to this: the difference between an officer saying “uh” and saying “that, that’s.” According to Stanford University researchers, police officers in Oakland, California, use one of those verbal tics more often with white drivers and the other more often with black drivers. If you can guess which tic conveys “respect” and which “disrespect,” you may have a career ahead of you in the exploding field of bias psychology. In June, a team of nine Stanford psychologists, linguists, and computer scientists released a paper purporting to show that Oakland police treat black drivers

Now for a few words about the Confederate statues contretemps in various states. 1. I wonder how many of the counter-protesters at the Charlottesville event even had any idea who Robert E. Lee was. He was a major hero of the Mexican-American War. He fought for the Confederacy against the Union, but at the time he did it, it was not illegal. Slavery was — while 100 percent evil — completely protected by law as of 1861. When Lee went to work to defend his native Virginia, he was not violating any law. In fact, at no time did the

Thousands of fans of Elvis Presley gathered at his iconic Memphis mansion, Graceland, on Tuesday to honor “the King of Rock” a day prior to the 40th anniversary of his death. The vigil was attended by Elvis’ former wife Priscilla Presley, 72, who was snapped mingling with attendees in the afternoon. Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis’ only child, was also at the memorial alongside 10-year-old twin daughters Harper Lockwood and Finley Lockwood. The 47-year-old rocker lit candles with mourners, joining them for a procession throughout the grounds of the 13.8-acre estate — which includes the graves of Elvis, his parents and his grandmother.

Nearly 800,000 people have taken advantage of this two-year renewable amnesty.

A House Democrat introduced a resolution on Friday suggesting that President Trump undergo a physical and mental health exam to help determine whether he is fit for office. Rep. Zoe Lofgren’s (D-Calif.) resolution specifically calls on Vice President Pence and Trump’s Cabinet members to “quickly secure the services of medical and psychiatric professionals” to “assist in their deliberations” invoking the 25th Amendment, which outlines presidential removal procedures. It posits that such an examination by doctors would “determine whether the president suffers from mental disorder or other injury that impairs his abilities and prevents him from discharging his Constitutional duties.

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects. Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.
