I know the title of this edition scares off some readers. I get scared thinking about it, but perhaps better now than later. Sigh, maybe AND later. I just read what’s in Bill Barr’s playbook, and it isn’t pretty. He has a way of seeing things from, frankly, an un-American point of view. (I already referred you to the recent Atlantic article, but I was garbled, so here’s another attempt to pass on the info without the references which the Atlantic series has a slew of:)
Barr believes our founding fathers were mistaken in drawing up the documents upon which our country is based. For example, he is against the separation of church and state.
He believes the powers of the president should be unlimited, extending even to the ability to pardon friends, enemies and himself.

As far as I can figure, major players in what could be thought of as a coup are our president, our attorney general, our vice-president and the head of our senate, plus the Proud Boys, the neo Nazis, the Boogaloos, KKK, you-name-them.

I forget–what’s the name of God’s son?
