Politicians used to avoid creating power because once created, it can be used by their opponents. First clue something is super wrong: They suddenly don't care. Every #POTUS from now on will have #SpecialCouncel. Goal: Destruction of public confidence in elected governance.
That's crushed tight in a single Tweet, so let's dig in a little. First consider deeply:
One of the biggest caps on the expansion of power in our history has been the goose/gander problem of politics. "If I grant myself this power, the other side will also have this power." Trying to create one-sided political power could be considered the holy grail of US politics.

Stitching update, plus a bonus pic of my needle minders. 💜❎ #CrossStitch #WashingtonDC a half-finished cross stitch of Washington DC monuments, done in pastelsneedle minders, which are magnets stuck to my cross stitch to hold needles. they are: a double skull, a purple zombie hand holding a slice of pizza, a blue sparkly cootie catcher, and Kermit sipping tea
And these supplies for a GIGANTIC project came in the mail, but I'm waiting on one more thing before I start stitching. It's going to be about 2.5 feet tall, with every square stitched. It will almost certainly take a couple years to finish.
99 colors and the pattern is an actual book 😱

1-The evening of the 22nd of June, Miss #SarahSanders (#WH press secretary) went for dinner with her family to this little place called ‘The Red Hen’. It seems that she was unceremoniously kicked out &harassed some more all the way across the street to the next restaurant
2-It seems somehow this incident has created some sort of mob-mentality wanting to harass Miss Sanders that has gotten to a point in which she now needs protection.

3-What kind of person chases somebody down the street based solely on political opinions?
