US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring. That means that Trump will appoint his 2nd Supreme Court Justice and give the ultra-conservatives a majority in all three branches of the US government. Kennedy himself was conservative, but he was much more libertarian and fairly balanced by today's conservative standards.

With this appointment, Trump and his cult will have carte blanche to do whatever they feel. It will be on the Democrats and their base to show up in November or else hell will break lose.

The justice thing is troubling, but I wouldn't totally fear things either. Most conservatives in Congress have the good sense to worry about re-election in November (or when their term is up) and most of them have been pretty restrictive to Trump for that reason.
