英语咬文嚼字 The Crazy Logophile

buy into sth
— phrasal verb with buy verb (BELIEVE)
to completely believe in a set of ideas
完全相信
I don't buy into all that New Age stuff. 我根本不相信那些什么新思潮。

At the start of his presidency, Trump regarded Europe as an afterthought. Now, there seems little left to the relationship but a bitter aftertaste for EU leaders who spent three years trying and failing to coax and cajole the combustible American into buying into the Western alliance. (Politico)

drive home
Make clearly understood, make a point
使人明白; 击中要害;中肯;讲清楚

These are not “one-off” incidents. There is a system in this country where the police force is trained to view civilians as the enemy and vice versa. These people getting attacked and bloodied only drives home the point—the system must change.

overbearing

too confident and too determined to tell other people what to do, in a way that is unpleasant
专横的;傲慢的;盛气凌人的

verb
to talk or think about something again, with the intention of improving it or changing it
重新考虑(意图改变或改善)
Gun laws need to be revisited. 枪支法律需要重新考虑。

high-handed
adjective disapproving/ˌhaɪˈhæn.dɪd/
using power or authority more forcefully than is needed, without thinking about the feelings or wishes of other people
高压的;专横的 (Cambridge)

Many former senior officers and government officials have rightly protested Donald Trump’s calling upon the military to clear Lafayette Square on Monday night. There is yet another deleterious consequence of the president’s high-handed decision to have troops confront peaceful American protesters. It is the impact that his actions may have on our fighting men overseas. (The National Interest)

pack up
— phrasal verb with pack verb
1)to give up (an attempt) or stop doing (something)
放弃
if you don't do your work better, you might as well pack up
2)to stop working properly
停止转动,出故障
