<nettime> will someone explain


Will one of the American nettimers take a few moments to explain
something to a constitutional ignoramous such as myself.

For those of us outside of the long standing narrative put about is that
the US constitution is so cunningly constructed with -checks and
balences- so as to ensure that the President can never be a
dictator/king/emperor.

And yet it appears (at least froma distance) that he is able through
this instrument called -executive orders- to do whatever he likes. Can
someone explain this apparent contradiction. Has he (or Bannon)
introduced in his campaign (and now in government) the political
equivalent of Blitzkrieg in which the sheer speed and number of
initiatives create panic and confusion in his enemies?

Where, if any, are the lilekly constraints and when, if at all, will
they be able to actually constrain?
