The Royalist

This week's New Yorker magazine features a chilling yet fascinating profile (link here) of Donald Trump's attorney general, William Barr.

Ever since his days as a Nixon fanatic, Barr has supported the idea of a President more powerful than the other two branches of government. That effectively would make a President more like a monarch than an elected official.

You'd think that an incompetent corrupt thug in the Oval Office would help him realize how such an idea is dangerous. To the contrary, Barr has repeatedly doubled-down on his theory.

Reading the piece, in many ways you come to realize that Barr, not Trump, is the most dangerous man in America.
