I really am fascinated by the daily catch 22......congress goes to the courts when the President works around them, but it's obvious that congress will not work with the President and will only resist....so the President (charged with protecting the country) goes around congress, who take him to court.....

You really can't make this shit up.

Raw data is available for the pardons and clemency granted by president, by month and year. Our previous President (link to data) pardoned more people per month than our current President (link to data) has his entire term to date.

If you read through the convictions of those pardoned by our previous President, you will find instance after instance of heroin dealers, meth manufacturers and distributors, conspirators, murderers, kidnappers, extortioners.

Our current president has yet to pardon any drug dealers or manufacturers, murderers, or any for low level common crimes.
He has pardoned however, Kristian Saucier, Joseph Arpaio, "Scooter" Libby and a boxer, long dead who appears to have been castigated for being successful, black and married to a white woman simultaneously. There are a couple of others I have not mentioned.

Pardoning Saucier seems to have been a huge middle finger aimed at the lack of any indictments served to the HrC camp for their "you mean wipe it with a towel?" personal email server. Arpaio makes sense to me, Johnson does as well. Reading a little bit about "Scooter" makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. He seems like a pretty shady dude, with great connections.

If the dems want to open up recipients of presidential pardons to post-pardon prosecution, they either have a very specific target, someone whom Trump has pardoned (Libby?), or they have forgotten how long an action like this would tie up the courts re-prosecuting all of Obama's murderers and drug dealers.

Or, this is all normal politics as usual - make nice for the cameras and share drinks and legal insider trading tips in the VIP lounge after business hours. Meanwhile, the constant chaos and manufactured bullshit being blasted at the American public 24/7 keeps folks worried 24/7 that the sky is falling and that we wont survive as a country if this goes on for much longer.

In reading the writings of our Founding Fathers, one could easily conclude that it takes much sober consideration to build a country, while it takes a wildly different type of consideration to run a country.

The 3 Letter Agencies estimation to high.

I think the estimations on the 3 letter Agencies are to high these days, wishful thinking.

Here is why. Where do the 3 letter Agencies recruit from? The Universities and Colleges that we are now saying are Marxists indoctrination institutions. Which has been going on for decades know and the rank and file may not be what we hope. Case in point the FBI and the Soft Trump Coup attempt.

Unfortunately this could be happening to the whole US Government to include the DOD.

I may be an alarmist - but the DOD has been leaning left for a long long time. If the DOD as a culture/community holds conservative values as part of their core structure then they are doing a tremendous job of hiding it and PRETENDING to espouse a much more liberal bent.
