Rule by decree is a style of governance allowing quick, unchallenged creation of law by a single person or group, and is used primarily by dictators and absolute monarchs. Rule by decree allows the ruler to arbitrarily create law, without approval by a legislative assembly.
When states of emergency such as martial law are in place, rule by decree is common. While rule by decree is easily susceptible to the whims and corruption of the person in power, it is also highly efficient: a law can take weeks or months to pass in a legislature, but can be created with the stroke of a pen by a leader ruling by decree. This is what makes it valuable in emergency situations. Thus, it is allowed by many constitutions, among which is the French Constitution, Argentine Constitution, Indian Constitution, etc. U.S. presidential executive orders share some similarities with rule by decree.

At great risk to their careers and personal well-being, these whistleblowers came forward to report that HSBC Bank was laundering money for drug cartels.
That's right. HSBC Bank was laundering money for those nice people who have flooded our communities with heroin -- while they murder and torture victims in the nations from where they operate. Yes, these are the same people who hang the naked, decapitated bodies of their victims from overpasses in Mexico and South America.
Did Ms. Lynch go after HSBC Bank when she was U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York? Well, let's hear from the United States Senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, to know the kind of public official Ms. Lynch is:
