The Most Important News You’ll Never Hear About...

Unless you Google: emergency powers george bush

Weird Wally heard of Mr. Bush’s actions a few days ago but, did not have enough information to come up with a good Google search term.

Although he’d gotten a few good hints over time, there was nothing solid. But when WW decided to put those hints into words, he came up with: emergency powers george bush.

And ,the following links are only a few among many.

President Bush, without so much as issuing a press statement, on May 9 signed a directive that granted near dictatorial powers to the office of the president in the event of a national emergency declared by the president.

The "National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive," with the dual designation of NSPD-51, as a National Security Presidential Directive, and HSPD-20, as a Homeland Security Presidential Directive, establishes under the office of president a new National Continuity Coordinator.

That job, as the document describes, is to make plans for "National Essential Functions" of all federal, state, local, territorial, and tribal governments, as well as private sector organizations to continue functioning under the president's directives in the event of a national emergency.

The directive loosely defines "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 functions."

WW wants to suggest to those of you who are ok with oppression because, you have nothing to hide, consider the possibility that you also have everything to loose.

Here it is, direct from the horses mouth at whitehouse.gov

Now tell me again about how we might fix things after the 2008 Elections, assuming that they actually happen?

Trust me,
