Clarence and Ginni Thomas at a Heritage Foundation event to celebrate his 30 years on the Supreme Court last October.

The Supreme Court justice and his wife battled for years for a more conservative America. New reporting shows how far she was willing to go after Donald Trump’s 2020 election loss.

...

In the year since the insurrection, a number of friends and allies of the Thomases, and even a former Thomas clerk, have received subpoenas from the congressional committee investigating the events of Jan. 6. Ginni Thomas co-signed a letter in December calling for House Republicans to expel Representatives Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger from their conference for joining the Jan. 6 committee. Thomas and her co-authors said the investigation “brings disrespect to our country’s rule of law” and “legal harassment to private citizens who have done nothing wrong,” adding that they would begin “a nationwide movement to add citizens’ voices to this effort.”

A few weeks later, the Supreme Court ruled 8 to 1 to allow the release of records from the Trump White House related to the Jan. 6 attack. Justice Thomas was the sole dissenter.


...

She's a "stop the steal", MAGA Republican who is selling access to the SCOTUS, and appears to have influence over at least one justice.

The founding fathers would never have believed so many completely clueless people would live in this country.  It's not just the US, IQ scores are falling globally.  Poor education, food higher in fats and sugar, less reading, less social interaction, less community connection.   The Right panders to those looking to blame and not question information.  As crazy as it sounds, their base is growing.

In principle, yes.
The ambiguity is over 'rules'.    

Norms?  Social conventions?  Legislated regulations?  Laws?  
 
Any of those / all of those ?  It's an analogy of an observation of "the system".  How about this ... rules are only for how to play the game, not how to win the game.  The rules are made so complicated that you spend all your time just trying to figure out what they are and how to comply and never end up playing the game.  A fools errand / Gordian Knot

How about this as an example of saying fuck you and your rules ...  ??

The GOP gets the Goebbels Award™ for co-opting the term "patriot," implying anyone that disagrees with them is - by definition - not a patriot. Sneaky!

QED. Babble, babble.

Wendy Rogers Is Pushing Right-Wing Conspiracy Theories to Move ‘The Overton Window’
In just one term in office, Rogers, a 67-year-old grandmother, has catapulted onto the national stage and raked in record donations thanks not only to her embrace of Trump, who has endorsed her bid for reelection, but also the far-right extremes of the white nationalist America First movement.

Rogers’ new ad is predictably heavy on Big Lie rhetoric and demands to see “arrests” and “perp walks” of those allegedly responsible for supposedly stealing the election.

“If you told me two years ago that, ‘Wendy Rogers, you’re going to be in the limelight on election integrity issues, election corruption for the nation,’ I never would have imagined it,” Rogers said. “We’ve collected all this data to arguably show widespread corruption in our voting system. … I want to see arrests. I want to see perp walks. I want to see everything out in the open. Elections have consequences. Stolen elections have far worse consequences.”

“We’re on defense all the time as state legislators fighting against the vaccine mandates, fighting against the mask mandates, fighting against medical tyranny,” she continued. “This is a long, protracted battle, and as much as the left gets away with changing the narrative, there is what’s called ‘the Overton Window of political acceptability’ and we have to move it inch by inch, day by day, and call out the fraud, call out the communist influence that is infiltrating this country.”

So what does this fellow mean by 'rules'.   I know he is not an academic but some clarity would be nice.
 
I got there by searching my phrase, We all have the right to be wrong as long as we play by the rules

I had a roommate who also drove a coffee truck with the same outfit I did who later became the Transportation Director for a large local school district and then a big wig in our national school bus transportation organization.  He passed some 20 years ago. Anyway, he told me of how he wrote a proposal for a legislative act that would create a board to write rules and regulation for the state regarding all things school busing. He also wrote the rules for minimum qualifications / certifications required for board members and the powers that they would have.  He essentially created a job and wrote the rules that would make him most qualified to run the board and have last word.  The legislation got passed.

I would just say that as with voting, it is not about who votes, but who counts the votes.  Same with "rules".  It is more about who writes them and why than what they actually are.  I would say where there is a "rule" that means someone else has the last word, unless you are the one writing the rules.

The same applies in commerce.  They are called entry barriers.  The ones writing those rules make it as hard as possible to start up a new business to compete with their existing businesses.  Happens everywhere, federal, state, county, local levels.

Mark Finchem, the Arizona secretary of state candidate backed by former President Donald Trump, spread dangerous misinformation about the Covid-19 pandemic on social media, calling the vaccine a "crime against humanity," implying it was a "bio-weapon" and sharing an article last August that suggested Covid-19 did not exist in the Canadian province of Alberta.
