Since when did eviscerating the Constitutional separation of powers become conservative? When re-election becomes more important than our founding principles

Genuinely looking forward to see how many self-styled “constitutional conservatives” clearly condemn Trump’s executive actions which attempt to take fundamental powers from Congress. My guess is that we’ll hear is a lot of whataboutism instead…

"The president’s meager, weak, and unconstitutional actions further demand that we have an agreement and any constitutional question issue is a separate issue." @NancyPelosi  #FoxNewsSunday 

Former President Jacob Zuma has fulfilled his promise to adhere to a Constitutional and High Court rulings ordering him to publicly apologise to former ANC Disciplinary Committee Chairperson Derek Hanekom.

Vladimir Putin has been either president or prime minister of Russia since 1999. And recent constitutional changes mean he can now stay in power until 2036 if he wishes. The stakes of Putin's succession are high. Ambassador John Tefft explains:

GOP ME Sen Collins: I hope the President’s actions will prompt Democratic leaders to negotiate seriously to reach a much-needed agreement..Congress must act quickly. There are constitutional limits on what the President can do to help through executive orders

It's bad enough that Donald Trump seems unable to act like the constitutional steward he is, but he's not alone. Read the full article by @NoahCRothman : Who’s Doing the Delegitimizing? ▸ #DonaldTrump  #JoeBiden  #2020Election

Recent constitutional changes have given Putin more flexibility in mapping his succession. John Tefft explains how the Russian leader now has several paths to maintaining control of Russian politics and ensuring the continuation of his policies & legacy:

Trump just had peaceful demonstrators viciously attacked. No, Mr. President. This is not a dictatorship. This is the United States of America. Our citizens have a constitutional right to peacefully protest. It's called the First Amendment.

I thought we’d already covered this after the attacks in Lafayette Square: the US government should not be using unidentified federal officers as a secret police force to terrorize US citizens & violate their constitutional rights. This is outrageous.

President @realDonaldTrump  announced historic steps to protect the Constitutional right to pray in public schools!

Mr. President, I go home to my district daily. Each morning, I wake up, and I go and fight for my neighbors. It is my constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch. But, it is my moral duty to fight for my constituents.

Your constitutional rights don’t depend on your race, gender, religion, sexuality or income. I can’t believe we still need to say that.

To: Republican colleagues From: Everyone else Date: Today Re: Constitutional duties After diplomat Taylor’s testimony you can no longer question whether this happened. The question is if you choose to follow the law or be part of the cover-up. We look forward to a response.

This week, President Trump has: Called the Constitutional ban on profiting off the presidency “phony” Given blanket defiance of lawful subpoenas Stood by his shakedown of a foreign power as “perfect” He insists he is above the law. We are following the facts. #TruthExposed 

BREAKING: Alabama's legislature just passed a law that criminalizes doctors and makes abortion illegal. Abortion is NOT a crime — it's a constitutional right. We will sue to stop this law from ever taking effect.

Congress voted 517-5 to impose sanctions on Russia. The President decides to ignore that law. Folks that is a constitutional crisis. There should be outrage in every corner of this country.
