Back in the days when even the American Government pretended to give a shit about the constitution. Back when Ashcorft was dismissing the Geneva Convention as "quaint".

Now it's the Bill of Rights & the Constitution on the "quaint" list. Things we can just ignore as historical anomalies unsuited for the challenges of 21st century plundering governing

The US increasingly reminds me of sicily under the governorship of Verres.

But you now don't even have a court in which to try him, let alone a Cicero to prosecute.

In 1972 the Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that Nixon was not beyound the subpoena powers of Congress, opinion by Burger, a Nixon appointee.  Today the decision would go 5-4 the other way.  The state of the Rule of Law in Murica.

current US Circuit Ct. D.C.
Merrick B. Garland was appointed to the United States Court of Appeals in April 1997 and became Chief Judge on February 12, 2013.
Remember him? How about the others? Shame that three of them folded so easily on the settlement, ain't it.

Trump is not "winning". He can go to hell and probably will sooner than later. He's a front, not a "dictator". Fact is, the Republican Party are killing it, as the children say. DNC has no plan but packing the House with #%$!@ DINO Biden? That is no path to recovering SCOTUS endgame, much less constitutional "reform". Worse defense evah. WHERE ARE THEIR #%$!@ 2020 SENATE FRESHMEN? People better wise up and uproot those losers. Or pray what's on the bench regresses to mean, when --not if-- a true hard-core conservative dons RBG's robe.

US is so headed for a carnival of broke-ass, sovereign states' wildlife.
