This administration showed us that whoever got into a position of power, he or she was a “victim” of something and she or he wanted some compensation. We the people, at least the ones reading and investigating knew the game smelled to corruption and nepotism coming to live in there.
What is a billionaire doing in a government position but helping himself to the spoils of richness? How stupid we are to not understand they are down to earth and want all poor people to become like them.
It also showed us that some section of the population believing in the stork story, thought it was time for a president to do something because they are being victims of an annihilation by the same government allowing those illegal criminals, and Muslims, and whatnot to come to this country. So stupid to not read history to learn those criminals once fought hand to hand on this same field or overseas for the commonwealth of this country.
Oh yeah! Them victims gathered around the liar in chief and believed he was going to circle the country with a beautiful wall and deport those undesirable criminals that were “Muslims, and Mexicans=Hispanic”.
I have to make something clear: I disagree with Marcus saying “You’re saying that they need special help from white men to accomplish anything”. I hope my English comprehension didn’t play me a joke, but I think he is not doing anything but becoming the racist we are trying not to be. “the white men” excludes, displaces, demeans, stereotypes other “Americans” as worthless as if they didn’t exist. This country is not white, nor black, nor Asian nor European but a rainbow of many races, colors, sizes, types and languages. Unless you are trying to say that the government itself is made out of only white people. Is Carson a white person so he can give away handouts to “whoever is a victim”? I got lost trying to grasp what he said.
Anybody is a victim here. I will touch the rent control later to see if anybody here confesses he or she is a victim of something.
So, a piece of politics in the make. Did you know why Carl Icahn resign? Because he felt himself a victim of the government and took a chance to join this corrupt government (remember draining the swamp?) in order to get his hand in the cookie jar but was caught in the act big time.
On Dec. 22, the day after Icahn was formally declared a White House adviser, the price of the credits dropped. Then, on Feb. 27, news leaked that Icahn had struck a deal with the Renewable Fuels Association to change the ethanol blending requirement. That sent the price of credits down more, and it fell further when word leaked that an executive order on ethanol blending was imminent.
Early in the year, CVR actually was selling renewable fuel credits, the magazine wrote. It was able to buy them later at a discount to meet federal requirements, according to the story.
Painter, reached Saturday by The Associated Press, said Icahn faces potential legal exposure to insider trading laws as well as other fraud statutes “if he took information from the White House or government in violation of any relationship or trust.”
Despite being unpaid, his job title as adviser to the president exposes him to possible legal action, Painter said. “When you have a title like that, that’s ‘to the president,’ it’s very hard to argue that you’re not a government employee,” Painter said.
