Trump Brings the Imperial Presidency to a Halt

This passivity, this failure of creative administration, is not at all what the president’s critics feared. They feared executive overreach—and with some justification. The only American presidents with the temerity to argue that the president’s actions are by definition legal have been Richard Nixon and Donald Trump. Even Andrew Jackson only argued that the Supreme Court had no ability to enforce its decisions, not that it had no basis to judge.

President Trump’s failures during the COVID-19 pandemic have been legion, but they have not been the result of executive overreach. In fact, he has been incredibly slow to use those powers available to a president. He has not organized governors or international efforts or driven legislation, all traditional presidential actions during crises.

6 Biggest Influences to an Inflammatory Lifestyle and How to Fix it

Inflammation is your body’s natural response to foreign substances. It’s the way that your immune system defends and protects you from viruses, bacteria, infections, and materials that may harm you.

The inflammatory response is one of the first steps that your body takes on the way to healing.

There are two main types of inflammation, acute and chronic. Acute inflammation is what takes place when a mosquito bite swells, a rash develops from poison ivy, or you spike a fever from a cold. Acute inflammation is usually marked by redness, heat, or pain as your body works to eliminate harmful agents and damaged tissue. Acute inflammation surfaces quickly and generally subsides quickly, too. 

Chronic inflammation, on the other hand, is a lot less visible and can wreak long-term havoc within your body. Recent research indicates that chronic inflammation causes and advances many common diseases. Chronic inflammation can exist within the
