That’s the trip, the stumble that starts the fall.”

This is how things worked in the Obama administration and how it maintained the illusion of control.

Will it be different under the presidency of Donald J. Trump?

 So you want to join the Trump Administration? Be a special assistant to a Cabinet secretary? Carry a briefcase in the White House?

hard-to-find-jobBe a special assistant to a Cabinet secretary? Carry a briefcase in the White House?

I get it. I did too, out of law school and fresh from a clerkship in 1984.

And I was lucky — very lucky — to work for two great attorneys general, William French Smith and Edwin Meese, and then White House Counsel Fred Fielding and his deputy Dick Hauser as they served as the personal lawyer for Ronald Reagan.

Heady stuff when you are in your 20’s.

Of course, you want to do such things.

Ambition to serve at the highest levels of the most powerful government in the world is a powerful thing.

The Reagan White House and the Smith and Meese Justice Departments were great places to be seen and not heard, to listen, learn and be useful.

These are what “ministries of all talents” bring together: lots of young people who will, as George Washington put it, find in the blink of an eye that they “have grown old in the service of my country.”

Four years go by very quickly.

The departing Obama aides will tell you eight, in fact, fly by.

Then you turn around and everyone at the reunions is over 60.

It happens. So it’s great to serve, and by doing so aquire skills sets and experiences that will prepare you for future service with even greater responsibilities.But … there’s always a but.

It can be very dangerous indeed.

Pride accompanies the entry ID pass that you drape over your neck and that you tuck discreetly away. And often hubris.

Without careful, often-exercised care you will quickly forget all that you do not know.

If there is any lesson in 2016 it is that 95 percent of the experts did not know what they did not know.

Thus the collective shock of election night across both parties’ elites and all of media, legacy and social, cable and radio, print and podcast.

And often hubris.

To avoid that trap and some other ones, three key rules.

First, begin every morning by looking in the mirror and telling yourself you are young and inexperienced, you are here to serve and learn, not puff out and climb up.You won’t believe it — at least not for long. But the practice might occasionally put you in a mind to actually learn something from an unexpected source or to revisit a long held and cherished assumption that perhaps, just maybe, you are completely wrong to hold.

You won’t believe it — at least not for long.

Second, prep yourself for the almost inevitable request by someone in your new circle at work and at play to cut a corner, large or small.That’s how espionage used to work, before cyber thieves cut round most of the recruitment process: Get any player of any rank to do one small thing that was out of bounds. One new friend asking for one small favor. That’s the trip, the stumble that starts the fall.

About JCscuba

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

One Response to Memo: To those wanting to work in the Trump administration

  1. Dave the Differentiat says:

    One of the really big problems in the Supreme Court has been having Justices who will enforce the U. S. Constitution – not attempt to change it with their opinions.

    Roberts is just one example and there have been many others in the past.

    The U. S. Constitution was written in plain English and the new law school” graduates appear to want to change the meaning of the words.

    The Second Amendment is just such an easy example. “The right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” The right of the People shall not be infringed. What right – to keep and bear arms.

    The Government needs to stop the constant chipping away at the People’s Rights!

    The word “hunting” is not included in the Second Amendment and there is not a single word about what type of “arms” are included or excluded.

    The right to keep and bear arms is so simple. ARMS includes any and all guns. The right is reserved for the PEOPLE. ALL PEOPLE and ALL ARMS.

    The U. S. Constitution had the BILL OF RIGHTS for the PEOPLE.

    The U. S. Constitution restricts the Government from taking away the PEOPLE’s Rights.
