How Trump and congress are erasing the last 20 years They’re using an obscure 1990s law to wipe out regulations protecting citizens and the environment https://www.salon.com/2017/11/26/how-trump-and-congress-are-erasing-the-last-20-years_partner/?utm_content=inf_800_3115_2&utm_source=SocialEdge&utm_campaign=influencer&tse_id=INF_de996020d2fa11e7b926579f881108d6

The profound damage President Trump has inflicted on our liberties can be measured by widespread complacency in the face of his administration’s escalating attacks on the rule of law, our public servants and the truth itself.

As Attorney General William P. Barr was reducing the Justice Department to a legal defense and public relations firm, Trump himself (who pretends to be law enforcement’s greatest friend) was attacking the FBI in terms that authoritarians use to prepare the way for persecuting their political enemies. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/our-country-is-accepting-the-unacceptable/2019/12/11/202481b4-1c5a-11ea-87f7-f2e91143c60d_story.html

“I think that it would be handled very beautifully by me. Because, as you know, I’m very diplomatic,” he said to Howard Stern in 2005, adding that while there would be a mix of light-skinned and dark-skinned black contestants, the white team would be strictly blondes only. #RacistInChief

Every American who voted for this, must accept that they voted for this. Trump has not “revealed” himself. He presented who he was and those who voted for him either wanted it or recklessly ignored it. And now this is the President of the United States.

1. Threaten to commit war crimes.

2. Threaten again.

3. Eliminate those ordered to commit the crimes any means of documenting said war crimes.

4. Prevent those ordered to commit war crimes from communicating crimes to homefront.

5. Prevent those ordered to commit war crimes from contacting an attorney when facing retaliation for lawfully refusing to fulfill illegal orders.

6. Pardon a high profile convicted war criminal so the troops know they won’t be held responsible.

If this were about OPSEC, The highest ranking military members twitter account is the primary threat. Since no action has been taken to correct, OPSEC can not be the priority.

Trump to ‘sign executive order about social media’ — BBC News

This Presidency is Killing Relationships—and We’re All Grieving Nothing adequately explains their complete rejection of Science.

Nothing completely accounts for them instantly embracing the most nonsensical of conspiracies.

Nothing truly prepared me for their social media explosions of racism.

Nothing fully connects the dots between their past goodness and this present ugliness.

I can microscopically parcel out every conceivable contributing factor: white supremacy, the pro-life lie, Fox News propaganda, toxic masculinity, Evangelical indoctrination, intellectual laziness, manipulated nationalism, unchecked capitalism, hatred for Hillary, political fatigue, disenfranchisement, fear of replacement, and celebrity worship:

They fail to adequately explain how I lost people I loved and respected.

They don’t cushion the pain of these separations.

They don’t make it easier for me to grieve the loss of living people.

They don’t comfort me in these relational funerals.

And as much as I am in mourning, I know that these people are likely similarly grieving me right now; that they too are lamenting their own list of ways they imagine I’ve changed or lost the plot or abandoned my convictions or betrayed my religion—and they’re wondering where they lost me. https://johnpavlovitz.com/2020/08/06/this-presidency-is-killing-relationships-and-were-all-grieving/
