MUST WATCH: “Rewriting the Limits of Presidential Powers,” a CBS News Report on Top Secret ‘Presidential Emergency Actions Documents’

“I have the right to do a lot of things that people don’t even know about.” – President Trump, March 2020

Anyone the least bit of political awareness knows Trump likes talking about his power almost as much as he likes talking in hyperbole.  So when he said “I have absolute power,” naturally it was chalked up to his narcissistic personality discorded.

Except it turns out, as the wanna be dictator likes to remind us, he “doesn’t kid.”

In what can only be described as one of the most terrifying news stories in recent memory, Ted Koppel, special contributor for CBS News Sunday Morning reports on the “Presidential Emergency Actions Documents” (PEADs).  These documents are so Top-Secret Congress is not privy to them; PEADs have the power to void parts of the Constitution ie habeas corpus; and can be enacted in times of National Emergency, which Trump has declared seven times already (and it’s not even election day).

Are we overreacting?  Judge for yourself.
