President Bush wants More power to the Executive
I was watching FOX news, yesterday as President Bush stated that Congress needs to pass new laws to to extend the powers of the Executive in response to a mass casualty event like another major storm or even a terror attack. Sorry, but he already has them under a series of Executive Orders written by every President since JFK and under continuous authorization of an ongoing "State of Emergency" that every President since Eisenhower has extended, probably under the threat of the Cold War. These Executive Orders authorize the total suspension of the Constitution for six months without review by Congress. Authorizes FEMA to assume all governmental powers and powers to relocate populations, en masse. As well as confiscate everything from individual food supplies, to firearms to power generators purchased at Home Depot. There are some fifteen such orders all artfully strung together during the Nixon administration and expanded under the Omnibus Crime Bills of 1991 and 1994. They are all viewable in the Federal Register and they are truly frightening. President Bush wants to now ADD to this power? I don't think so. With this power, Hillary Clinton could succeed in doing what her husband always longed to do: Become American royalty and rule for life.
