Bush Assumes Dictatorial Powers Via Two Presidential Directives
Though author and journalist Dr. James Corsi provided in 2007 the disturbing commentary below on two secretive Homeland Security Presidential Directors (HSPDs) on C-SPAN, I missed his interpretation of how Bush now can designate himself dictator whenever he so construes a civil disturbance as threatening national security.
With the impending implosion of the economy arguably qualifying for such an event, combined with the recent recall from Iraq of the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team deployed 1 October 2008 in the US "to help with 'civil unrest' and crowd control'" at home, we certainly well on our way toward imposition of martial law.
Below is the YouTube.com narrative that accompanies Corsi's taped C-SPAN commentary.
Bush signs unconstitutional "power grab" presidential directives NSPD51 and HSPD20, giving him full-dictatorial powers in the event of a loosely defined "catastrophic emergency."
The directives define "catastrophic emergency" as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government function."
It also states, "The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government." In other words, the president gave himself the sole power and duty to interpret the constitution anyway he chooses, and neither Congress nor the public shall be allowed to debate or disagree on such matters.
Right now, the only thing standing between the United States' Constitutional Republic and Bush/Cheney's apparent desire to rule with an iron fist is a lesser event than that of 9/11
