Norman Ornstein on Trump's state of emergency: ‘Our fundamental freedoms could be at stake’
Pay attention and watch respected political scholar Norman J. Ornstein deliver a clear, precise and powerful account of the devastating consequences to our republic if the judiciary were to somehow uphold Trump’s voluntary state of emergency.
I’ve watched this several times and it’s a thing of beauty.

Ornstein delivers this in a way that can be easily understood. And it’s extremely sobering.
No Article 1, and a president may seize property, institute martial law, control all transportation and communication. This is really scary stuff from Norm Ornstein, but this is what could happen. Our fundamental freedoms are at stake and more people need to know that.
This is a clip that needs to be shared. Who do you think needs to see it the most?
