In 1789, the Founders devised a system of checks and balances to keep kingly powers out of the hands of presidents.

These men hatched a plot that would allow the White House to wield enormous powers, operating behind a veil of secrecy and unchecked by Congress or the courts. Today's administration is bringing this project to fruition.--From publisher description."@en ;
