Frum, Frum, Frum, Frum .....

Quite a number of people are comparing President Trump's claim of a right to self-pardon to George III. In fact, Trump is asserting a much much greater power than George III ever imagined - a power for which Charles I lost his head and James II lost his throne ... more ...




The Stuart monarchs asserted a "dispensing power" that permitted them to absolve individual subjects of the duty to comply with laws.




This "dispensing power" was grievance number 6 in the famous Nineteen Propositions adopted by Parliament in 1642, leading to outright civil war.
