Are We in a Constitutional Crisis?

This is how democracy ends: not with a bang, but with a long and technical debate over whether we're using the right words.

We are clearly facing an impending threat to our established constitutional order.

As laid out in the Constitution, the Congress is tasked with overseeing the executive branch.

The White House sweeping refusal to cooperate with Congress on any investigation.
Has the makings of a constitutional crisis, because the head of the Justice Department.
Is now helping block congressional investigations into the president regardless of law or merit.

Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
Was emphatic: yes. We are. a line in the sand was Barr’s confirmation.
Without a commitment to recuse, given the letter he wrote last summer.
It turned out exactly as it would obviously turn out once he was confirmed.
But seriously, the invocation of executive privilege to bar.
A congressional committee from investigation or oversight is fully over the line.

Neal Katyal, who served as acting solicitor general in the Obama administration.
Feels the same way: we were in a constitutional crisis.
From the moment of the election, having a leader who has contempt.
For his constitutional duty to take care that the law be faithfully executed.

Professor Dawn Johnsen, of the Maurer School of Law at Indiana University, makes the same point:
The Mueller report and reaction to it confirm that we are deep into a constitutional crisis.
Deeper than we collectively seem to appreciate.

Caroline Fredrickson, president of the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy.
Says we're asking the wrong question altogether: It been an ongoing crisis.
What’s hard to evaluate is when the temperature is so high that we actually begin to boil.
A constitutional crisis isn't necessarily something that happens at one point in time.
Now we have a situation where a series of injuries to the health of our democracy.
And rule of law exert cumulative harm.
If we wait for some 'red line' it will be too late.

From my dear friend 'yoli' to DON CON/CROOK.

In the DON THE CON/CROOK brain.
There is a 'left' and 'right'.
In the left side, there-s nothing right.
In the right side, there-s nothing left.

DON THE CON/CROOK asked the adoring crowd.
Who's going to pay for the wall?
And the crowd responded in unison.
And then the crowd shouted, at the tops of their lungs.
You said Mexico was going to PAY

Tell me who you walk with, and I'll tell you who you are.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Diabetes II or Diabetes 2
Affect a few.
What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.

Looking more like the puppet Walter!
