One lawsuit to stop it has already been filed, and several more will be filed early next week.

He is setting a very dangerous precedent.

I don't think the Texas Landowners have a case but Congress has to check the Presidential Powers, it's been going on too long and only getting worse. And here we are. I thought when Congress gave Bush ridiculous power for the Patriot Act we went down a dangerous road.

Interesting article in Psychology Today, written a couple of years ago:

Check out the clinical criteria for NPD. Ring a bell?

Troubling article on the "MAGA" hat as symbol of racism, spreading beyond our shores:

Interesting. How about the OK hand gesture with last 3 fingers spread.

That's not an OK gesture. That's the white power gesture.

Yeah. That's what I meant. I wonder how many people know about this dog whistle. Here it is.

Anyone else freaked out about Barr? He's obviously Trump's man & he has control of the justice department. Trump is consolidating power and I'm scared for our country.

Rule of law is being trampled. And that's the core value of this country.

I don't think the Democrats will stand for it. They are fighting already.

CNN has reported that Trump told the Director of Customs and Border Protection to order his agents on the border to break the law and he will pardon him. Dictator. Here it is. He's ordering criminal behavior. Terrified. He's being emboldened by Barr who will let him do whatever he wants.

CALL YOUR SENATOR & ASK FOR IMPEACHMENT or ask them to do something about it.

They're trying to spin it as a joke. Right. My sister said Twitter has exploded.

break the law and get pardoned...

That is crazy talk.

But then it has been crazy talk for years.

bookfan, I fear it is too late. Dangerous precedents have been set, and it has opened the door for even more egregious acts in Trump's second term (and there will be a second term; Russia will see to that).

What I really don't understand, is how otherwise decent, seemingly intelligent people can still support this guy. My boss is an example of this. He's basically a nice guy, smart enough to run a community bank but kind enough to spend his vacation in Guatemala helping out at an orphanage, and yet he stands staunchly behind his man Trump. How? Why?

It boggles the mind.

Yeah sef - and this is the tipping point for me. I fear it's too late also. Trump has too much power.

I was just reading several articles which I can't find now. They were more or less about confirmation bias. In short, once people have made a decision about something they embrace anything supporting their belief & reject anything that doesn't support it. This may be a part of what's going on with some of the 41%.
