This is what authoritarianism looks like. This is what the demands of loyalty to an authoritarian feels like. This is what being under this presidency is like.

Trump erases offshore drilling rules enacted after BP oil spill
The Trump administration on Thursday dismantled safety rules for offshore drilling put in place by the Obama administration after disastrous BP oil spill fouled the Gulf of Mexico nearly a decade ago
Mr. Trump has spent his entire presidency trying to undo Obama’s presidency. A presidency that laid the bedrock that this economy has solidly stood on. If the Trump administration could erase history I am sure they would delete the entire time slot that Obama was in office.
Trump: McGahn shouldn't testify to Congress
President Donald Trump said Thursday that he did not want former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify before Congress about allegations that the president obstructed justice.
Why? Is it because he actually obstructed justice both in front of and behind closed doors?
Kamala Harris on Barr stammering: He knew he could 'expose himself to perjury'
Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., suggested Attorney General William Barr was worried about perjury as the reason for his…
Harris, a 2020 candidate for president and former California attorney general, asked Barr if President Trump or anyone else at the White House suggested to him that he open an investigation into anyone. Barr struggled to answer, saying at one point that he was “trying to grapple with the word ‘suggest.’”
During an interview Thursday on CNN, Harris said Barr asking her to repeat her question and hesitation to answer was indicative of delay tactics.
“He did not answer the question. First of all, he wanted it to be repeated which impressed me as he wanted time to really think about how he was going to answer the question. He obviously heard the question the first time. And then parsing words about ‘suggested.’ He did not answer the question,” Harris said. “I’m sure he didn’t, because he knew he was under oath and he knew he could potentially expose himself to perjury if he didn’t answer honestly.”
Asked if she wished she has pressed Barr further to answer the question, Harris said Barr was “clearly” not going to cooperate.
The exchange between Barr and Harris has been the subject of debate. Veteran journalist Bob Woodward said on MSNBC that it became evident that “a line clearly was crossed” between Barr and the White House. John Dean, former President Richard Nixon’s White House counsel, went as far as to suggest Barr actually did lie.
Later in her line of questioning, Harris also got Barr to admit that he decided not to charge Trump with obstruction of justice without seeing the underlying evidence of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation report.
After leaving the room, Harris told reporters that Barr “lacks all credibility” and called on him to resign.
Actually not only should he resign, he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law that he has sworn to uphold. But why would he want to do that!?
A consistent majority of the members of this Congress dating back to Obama’s presidency in both chambers are impertinent to the constitution and to the constituents they serve. They staunchly serve a debased form of governance in Trump that racializes as well as politicizes the corruption, injustice, and inequality that plaques our country.
The impact of Trump’s presidency, which not coincidentally proceeded from the election of the first Black president, is undoubtedly an assertion — in hierarchical exercise, to usurp any democratic freedoms that would infringe upon the vanity and insanity of a tyrannical minority or electoral college vote. It is meant to check and keep in line those who (by effect and by appearance) threaten the order, the privilege, and entitlement that inequality, resentment and injustice foments in our country.
