Well, since Trump scared away all the qualified civilians who might have been remotely interested in taking over as his new National Security Advisor, he had to put on his Commander-In-Chief cap and order an active duty general officer to take the job.
From what I can tell, Lieutenant General McMaster has the intellectual and national security chops to manage the security needs of job, as well as the [feisty] character and courage to manage the narcissism and egos of Trump and Bannon.
I just hope he has the heart for it…

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

While the president does everything within his power, which is growing mightier by the day, to convince us that the press is the enemy, we have to seriously consider alternate means for holding him accountable for these egregious actions of his that are direct attacks on our freedoms.
I don’t believe he will ever in a declarative, political manner take our eloquently expressed Constitutional freedoms away from us by any messy and slow Rule of Law means; for, this would require him to rallying the Congress to write and pass the laws that would strike down our freedoms, and which would require such a slanted stacking of the Courts with those who would find such invalidating laws…legal.
Not his style.
Besides, there is no need for him to go through all that effort…

Been dying to watch Westworld.

Two days of crashing from the sleep deprivation.
