Charles Hugh Smith – Era of the Lawless Presidency


Charles Hugh Smith has written recently about The Most Destructive Presidencies in U.S. History: George W. Bush and Barack H. Obama.

Powers once granted are almost impossible to take back.

After 13.5 years, there is more than enough evidence for reasonable people to conclude that the presidencies of George W. Bush and Barack H. Obama are easily the most destructive in U.S. history.

When historians speak of failed presidencies or weak presidencies, they are typically referring to presidencies characterized by uneven leadership, petty corruption by self-serving cronies or in extreme cases such as the Nixon presidency, abuses of executive power.

But weak or failed presidencies are not destructive to the rule of law and the foundations of the nation. The failed president leaves office and the basic structure of the nation continues: the rule of law, the balance of powers and a free-market economy.

    When discussing destructive presidencies, one should not omit those of U.S. Grant or Jimmy Carter. Both were nightmares for the American people. FDR was not all that far behind nor was Woodrow Wilson and his approval of the Federal Reserve System, arguably the most financially destructive organization ever created.
