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

The Week, by Paul Waldman

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 6/17/2017 5:36:38 AM

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.

ATLANTA -- They had a long way to go and a short time to get there, but hundreds of fans in Trans Ams have put the hammer down and made it to Atlanta to celebrate the 40th anniversary of "Smokey and the Bandit." About 350 cars this week retraced actor Burt Reynolds´ wild ride from the Texas-Arkansas line to Atlanta in the movie that roared into pop culture in 1977. "Every town we drive through, people come out to film us, take pictures and wave as our convoy of cars comes through - it´s like being in a huge parade,"

Did Putin show Oliver Stone a fake video? Director

It may be a tempest in a teacup, or, perhaps, a storm in a samovar. Russian social media is reacting strongly to something President Vladimir Putin showed filmmaker Oliver Stone for the director’s much-hyped, four-part series of free-flowing chats with the long-time Russian leader. In episode three of “The Putin Interviews,” the Russian president shows Stone footage on a cellphone of what he claims are Russian operations in Syria. You see heavy bombardment, huge clouds and men running. The Conflict Intelligence Team, a group of Russian researchers who track Russian involvement in military conflicts, says the footage is U.S. Department

It’s still months before Megyn Kelly’s new NBC daytime show is set to premiere, but it already feels like the former Fox News anchor has overstayed her welcome. Only three weeks into her Sunday-night newsmagazine show — a “Dateline” style piece, structured around her interviews with high-profile “gets” — Kelly’s star is dimmer than ever. It’s a far cry from where she was just a year ago. 2016 was a banner year for Kelly: After a wave of flattering media coverage, she led round-the-clock election coverage for Fox News — anchoring one of its highest-rated programs, “The Kelly File,” and shoring

Furious at their loss in yet another Trump-era special election, Democrats are calling for the head of ... House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. It’s understandable: Republican ads in Georgia painted the Democrat, Jon Ossoff, as sure to be a Pelosi pawn — a charge that has scored for the GOP in race after race over the last decade. New York’s own Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-Nassau) is far from alone in saying, “It’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go, and the entire leadership team.” And Rice backed Pelosi in last year’s leadership fight. The challenger, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), is even

Donald Trump earned respect from the Washington establishment for appointing three of the nation’s most accomplished generals to direct his national-security policy: James Mattis (secretary of defense), H. R. McMaster (national-security adviser), and John Kelly (secretary of homeland security). In the first five months of the Trump administration, the three generals — along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil CEO — have already recalibrated America’s defenses. At home, illegal immigration is down by some 70 percent. Abroad, a new policy of principled realism seeks to reestablish deterrence through credible threats of retaliation. The generals are repairing

Last August, Dominique Heaggan-Brown, an African-American police officer in Milwaukee, shot and killed Sylville Smith, an African-American suspect with a lengthy record who was armed and fleeing the police. Anti-police rioting ensued. Four officers were injured. It was clear from the beginning that the African-American policeman did not shoot Smith for reasons having anything to do with race. But this didn’t matter to the local rioters or to Black Lives Matter activists. Nor did it matter that the facts surrounding the shooting had not yet emerged. As I wrote: The locals are using the incident as an excuse to riot and attack police

Ex-Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson’s testimony Wednesday should mark the definitive end of “Russia hacked the election” hysteria. Too bad it took so long to get to this point. Johnson told the House Intelligence Committee outright that the Russians failed to alter “ballots, ballot counts or reporting of election results.” Yes, it’s clear Russia (with Vladimir Putin’s full approval) orchestrated cyberattacks designed to influence the 2016 contest, and also pushed fake news. But the hack, and release via WikiLeaks, etc., of Democratic e-mails produced nothing game-changing. The biggest impact was to confirm the obvious: The Democratic National Committee favored Hillary Clinton from the

Whenever a tragic event hits the news—whether it’s as monumental as the thousands dying on 9/11, or as personal as the crew perishing on the Challenger space shuttle—something predictable happens afterwards. People make jokes. It’s part of human nature. Something is so awful, you have to laugh to keep from crying. But here’s the thing—previously, these jokes were underground. They’d be passed quietly from person to person, sometimes with a sense of embarrassment. You wouldn’t turn on the TV or read a humor column to find them. Now, however, it seems the atmosphere has become so ugly that TV, and widely-read websites, are the

Democrats pulled out all stops in their effort to show that the #Resistance isn’t just about marches and slogans and insulting the president, but also about flipping the House in 2018.

Now I confess I couldn’t follow all the actual allegations made in those essays. They were six jungles deep in the weeds. But I do remember the intense atmosphere that the scandal created.

Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for

"I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party," Obama wrote. "Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did." He argued that the Republican health care bill

Most illegal immigrants who pay taxes have stolen someone else’s legal identity, and the IRS doesn’t do a very good job of letting those American citizens and legal immigrants know they’re being impersonated, the tax agency’s inspector general said in a new report released Thursday. The theft creates major problems for the American citizens and legal foreign workers whose identities are stolen, and who have to deal with explaining money they never earned.

The deadly collision between a U.S. destroyer and a container ship June 17 took place while the freighter was on autopilot, according to Navy officials. The Philippines-flagged cargo ship ACX Crystal was under control of a computerized navigation system that was steering and guiding the container vessel, according to officials familiar with preliminary results of an ongoing Navy investigation. Investigators so far found no evidence the collision was deliberate. Nevertheless, an accident during computerized navigation raises the possibility the container ship´s computer system could have been hacked and the ship deliberately steered into the USS Fitzgerald, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.

President Donald Trump has said he will pursue legislation that would bar immigrants from being eligible for welfare for at least five years. At a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, last night he said ´the time has come´ for ´new immigration rules´ that would require those seeking admission to the country to be able to support themselves financially and would bar the use of welfare for a period of at least five years. He said his administration would be ´putting in legislation to that effect very shortly.´ It is unclear, however, how Trump´s proposal would change the current situation.
