ZitatUnder the proposed new rules package, which was seen by Bloomberg, members could face a $500 fine through deductions to their paychecks for a first offense of using electronic photography or audio or visual recording, as well as for broadcasting from the chamber's floor. A $2,500 fine would be leveled for the next such offense and each subsequent violation. https://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2016-12-24/ryan-proposes-fines-ethics-moves-on-grandstanding-house-members

Zitat"I think we've lived through an historic time. I think we'll talk about what happened in this year politically for many, many decades to come."
ZitatBut Bannon is right. It will take many years to undo the damage done in the last 60 years by the progressive Marxists.
ZitatChuck Todd has interviewed Donald Trump many times, and he's noticed something somewhat disquieting about the unquiet president-elect.The man doesn't laugh — not in a normal, spontaneous, regular-human kind of way."[It] drives me crazy. Do you know what? I've never seen him laugh," the "Meet the Press" host told me during an interview for POLITICO's "Off Message" podcast earlier this month. "I challenge somebody to find him laughing, and that person has yet to find an example, in my opinion. He'll smile, but he smiles appropriately. Watch him at the Al Smith dinner [the roast in New York City in October] ... He doesn't really laugh. He looks for others to laugh. It is just weird."
Zitat"Then there's the amount of time he spends after the interview is over, with the sound off. He wants to see what it all looked like. He will watch the whole thing on mute," Todd told me, sitting in his cluttered office in NBC's nondescript, low-slung Washington headquarters on Nebraska Avenue."He's a very visual guy," says Todd. "He thinks this way, and look, it's an important insight in just understanding him. The visual stuff is very real beyond just himself." It's a source of his political effectiveness, an understanding of the blunt force of imageryhttp://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/chuck-todd-donald-trump-off-message-podcast-233066
ZitatTodd said of Trump, "He is a marketer. He is a salesman. I've never met a salesman that didn't exaggerate or worse. And one of the things we have to remember about him because it's the salesman mentality. He will never say a negative word about you in person. To your face. he will always compliment—always find a way to compliment. It's every salesman trick in the book, like Dale Carnegie."Todd continued, "He doesn't want to be unpopular. That is a powerful thing...I think he is an any means necessary kind of guy. I think he is a transactional guy," adding, "I ultimately believe that guardrails for him are popularity, and that matters to him."
ZitatSoon after Donald Trump passed over bristle-brush-stached former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton as his pick for secretary of state, the Washington Post quoted an anonymous Trump associate speculating as to why the president-elect may have done so: "Donald was not going to like that mustache. ... I can't think of anyone that's really close to Donald that has a beard that he likes." Trump, another unnamed source with knowledge of the transition team's thinking said, is "very aesthetic."
ZitatTrump understands one important dynamic: In a world where there is a wealth of information, there is always a poverty of attention, and he has this ability to generate four or five story lines a day. In the face of that, how can his opponents break through on even one of them? He is always in control."Making the media drink from a fire hose worked to Trump's benefit throughout his unconventional presidential campaign. By forcing editors and news producers with a finite amount of ink or airtime to choose what to cover and what to ignore, Trump succeeded in bombarding the nation's collective consciousness with his massive presence and unrelenting will. It is, in fact, a hallmark of his approach during several decades in the business and media world."A lot of the time he creates chaos in order to get where he wants to go. It's often planned chaos," said Louise Sunshine, a longtime Trump Organization executive who worked for him for 15 years. "His style is to throw all the cards up in the air and let them land. He likes to see people scramble and be on their toes."
Zitat"Out of the chaos usually comes something good for him. It doesn't always work for everyone else," she added.http://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/trump-twitter-feed-fears-233242
Zitat von: Peiresc am 05. Januar 2017, 22:16:13Sie müssen dann nur noch die lächerlich nebensächliche Aufgabe lösen, zu konkurrenzfähigen Preisen auf den Markt zu kommen. Aber auch dafür wird es eine Lösung geben. Arbeitsminister wird Andrew Puzder, bisher CEO einer Restaurant-Kette. Er ist dafür bekannt, gegen den Mindestlohn zu sein, gegen Pausenvorschriften, gegen Vergütungen für Überstunden usw.
ZitatDa muss man nur noch zwei und zwei zusammenzählen: In den USA Löhne wie in Mexiko, und einszweifix – also wo ist das Problem? Genial.
Zitat von: grober_unfug am 06. Januar 2017, 10:49:59Genau, das hält auch die Mexicaner und hier die Musels draussen. Wir machen ein Land für einen erheblichen Teil der Menschen so übel wie die bescheidensten Ecken vom Rest der Welt und dann kommen die Leute von dort nicht mehr hierher und wir haben unsere Arbeitsplätze hier und die böse Automatisierung vernichtet auch keine Arbeitsplätze mehr.
ZitatTrump, they say, doesn't usually like getting into day-to-day minutiae or taking lengthy briefings on issues. [...]He doesn't like to be presented with long manuals and often has a short attention span
ZitatHe can become obsessed with seemingly unimportant details — like the color of a floor in a hotel, or the exact dollar amount of a check, these people say. But unless he becomes interested in a project or issue, or unless it involves large sums of money or publicity, he stays away. "He tends to micromanage the budget," Nunberg said.
Zitat"You'd go several days when you wouldn't hear from him," said Sam Nunberg, a former Trump aide. "Then, he'd ask you 'Are we on this? What's going on with this? What's happening there?' If there's something he wants done, he doesn't do well with you telling him it's not done yet."[...]"They'll have as much room as they need — until they don't," one transition official said of Trump's Cabinet secretaries, noting that Trump has a tendency to insert himself into issues that pique his interest in dramatic fashion.
ZitatSecretary of state appointee Rex Tillerson, for one, was asked during a recent prep session conducted near the White House what he would do in a situation where he awoke in a foreign country to learn of a tweet by Trump that had undermined his negotiating position, according to a source close to the process. The typically unflappable former Exxon CEO was momentarily tongue-tied when searching for a response.
