Had a small Civics discussion this week.

The topic was: Which (USA) branch of government enforces laws?

Many don't know and this is why many laws are selectively enforced.

Law enforcement

If you follow all the different agencies to the top it's the executive branch that drives the bus.

Closest thing USA has to a national police is the FBI.

DoJ owns them.

Not so simple any more, though. Many comparisons have already been made of BLM protest handling, and the fine mess at the Capitol; the literal National Police taking selfies with those violating the one law the NP were sworn to enforce and so on. Langston Hughes and Solomon both warned that governments that permit that sort of imbalance will face consequences.

I do think the selective enforcement is due to bigger causes than ordinary ignorance. That at least could be fixed by systems (schools) already in place.

If you mean McConnell, he was reelected to the Senate.

What he won't be, almost certainly, is majority leader. That's where his power was.
