So, there’s this lawyer, John Yoo. He has come up with a legal doctrine for why Trump can legally be a dictator under the Constitution. Hence Trump’s weird news about protecting people from pre-existing conditions, something currently already done by the ACA. He’s going to do an Executive Order that zero’s out the ACA. Then he’s going to cherrypick the most politically popular bits and claim them as his own.
That Twitter liberals a making fun for Trump for this apparently redundant move about pre-existing conditions is a sign of how oblivious they are to how bad things are in real terms in the United States.
We’re now officially so far down the road to tyranny that we’re IN tyranny. And, really, the issue is because of the Overton Window and various forms of ratfucking on the part of Trump’s political goons, the only way the fascists who support Trump will ever care is if it becomes personal. Then they’ll scream bloody murder but it will be way, way, way, way too late.
It’s already too late.
Again, I wish there was something on a practical level I could tell you that would make matters better. But I honestly can’t think of anything. Trump is going to sign a series of EO’s between now and Election Day that the MAGA echo chamber will spin as the second coming of Jesus Fucking Christ.
At this point, the only thing that is actually holding Trump back is American self-perception. So fascism is here in America. Trump’s consolidation of power is well on its way and on a macro level there is absolutely nothing we can do about it.
I wish I was smart enough to think up some way to mitigate this situation, but, alas, I’m not. I fully expect to be either snatched off the street or pushed out a window at some point in Trump’s stolen second term.
Goodnight and good-luck.
