What has happen?

July 22, 2007

What has happen since the last meaningful blog entry I put up?

We have had “Presidential Directive 51”. This directive gives all of the power of the government to the Executive Branch, thus creating a dictatorship. You will get a lot of people that on the face of the document will tell you that no it does not.

At face value it does look like that, but you must go research all the other “Directives” and “Executive Orders” that it refers too.

The congressman wanted to see government plans for after a terror attack

In other happenings around the Government, Congressman Peter DeFazio, of Oregon, received many request from his constituents to find out what is in the classified section of a plan that this administration will be enacted incase of a terrorist attack. It seems that the White House has denied the Congressman’s right to see these classified documents.

As a member of the U.S. House on the Homeland Security Committee, DeFazio, D-Ore., is permitted to enter a secure “bubble-room” in the Capitol and examine classified material. So he asked the White House to see the secret documents.
On Wednesday, DeFazio got his answer: DENIED.

Does this mean the only ones that will know what is to be done after they attack, will be the attackers?

“We’re talking about the continuity of the government of the United States of America,” DeFazio says. “I would think that would be relevant to any member of Congress, let alone a member of the Homeland Security Committee.”

It seems that you would want some people to know what to do in case we are attacked, on a major scale. Like the one in Chertoff’s “GUT”. If thinking that this is just the slightest bit suspicious is to believe in Conspiracies, well then I believe.

“I find it inexplicable and probably reflective of the usual, knee-jerk overextension of executive power that we see from this White House,” Ornstein said.
This is the first time DeFazio has been denied access to documents. DeFazio has asked Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., to help him access the documents.
“Maybe the people who think there’s a conspiracy out there are right,” DeFazio said.

So why is it that the White House won’t let the congressman see the documents? Although it comes as no surprise to me seeing how secretive this administration has been in the past, and with good reason. They have been breaking the law, and ignoring the Constitution. Although I have ask this of you in the past, “Are we being ruled by the Constitution, or The Patriot Act?
