If you don't like how he executes, what are you going to do.
If Congress does not like what the executive branch is doing, it has two main options. First, it may rewrite or amend a previous law, or spell it out in greater detail how the Executive Branch must act. Of course, the President has the right to veto the bill if he disagrees with it, so, in practice, a 2/3 majority if often required to override an Executive Order.
Executive Orders can be challenged in court, usually on the grounds that the Order deviates from "congressional intent" or exceeds the President's constitutional powers.

Are we, the "fringe", at last becoming more powerful? Is MSM starting to pay attention? Ask the hard questions? Dig for the truth?
So it would seem. Not all of them, and not with the speed we would want, but it does seem to be happening.
Maybe there is yet hope.
