“VIETNAM VET: A TRUE PATRIOT”
Since: Apr 07
#1 Aug 19, 2007
On May 4, 2007, President George W. Bush signed an executive order that could ensure that he won't have to relinquish office is 2009. Or he could just deliver a dictatorship in the hands of a future chief executive.
The official name of this charming order is the National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive (specifically, NSPD-51/HSPD-20), NSPD-51 didn't receive any coverage in the mainstream media--in fact, it was only discovered when the unclassified portion was posted on the White House Web site on May 9, with no further announcement or press briefing.
According to NSPD-51, in the event of a (loosely defined)" catastrophic emergency," the president can literally take over all government functions and direct all private-sector activities to ensure that the US emerges with an "enduring constitutional government." How the government is supposed to remain constitutional in the face of the de facto dictatorship and abridgement of the separation of powers that NSPD-51 would deliver isn't addressed in the language of the directive "Catastrophic emergency" is defined as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the US population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions."
Even more frightening, there is no requirement that the president submit to Congress a declaration that such a state of catastrophic emergency even exists: NSPD-51 can be implemented without Congressional approval. Of course, since Congress would also be directed by the president, why should they be bothered to approve his right to rule?
NSPD-51 apparently supersedes the National Emergencies Act, a US federal law passed in 1976, which actually charges Congress with oversight of presidential emergency powers.
Conspiracy theorists who have speculated that the Bush administration won't be giving up the reins of power so easily come Jan. 20, 2009, argue that NSPD-51 could set the stage for the cancellation of the '08 presidential election, or serve to justify a suspension of the transfer of office from Bush to the new president-elect. For all those people counting down the days and hours to Bush's exit, that wo9uld be a major disappointment, to say the least. Until then, we'll all just have to hold our collective breath in the hope that no such "catastrophic emergency" comes to pass.--Mark Miller

Vision with out Sight, Justice with out Truth, Faith with Character
There are those hiding behind their position and badge. They are not up holding the law seeking the truth, but promoting a vision.
Their vision statement says a lot one city, one state, one school board, one police force and one mind at a time.
Lets take a closer look at some legislation
Oklahoma: 1999 legislation, HB 1765, authorizes district school boards of education to develop and make available character education programs. The local school boards of the school districts of this state may develop and implement a comprehensive program for character education in grades K-6. This program shall focus on students development of character traits, the kind and manner found in available curriculum.It being immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety, an emergency is hereby declared to exist, by reason whereof this act shall take effect.
1.How would it be immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety ? We are talking about a school grades k-6 are we not?
2.What an emergency is to be declared to exist, by reason whereof this act shall take effect ? Who would declare it ? Would it be the same people placed in positions that have been promoting his program ? Instead of serving the people in the courts up holding their rights or freedoms.
3. Whereof this act shall take effect. Meaning no vote by the people will be needed kind of like military law.
