In regards to the previous post - I find it extremely peculiar that no major news media outlet has picked up the story of the Council of Governors, the reason behind the grossly authoritarian dictum, and the implications it has on the country as a Constitutional Republic.
No questions are being asked, and no answers are being demanded.
A President is not going to make an Executive Order that has no purpose - so WHY are not even FOXNEWS asking WHAT WAS THE PURPOSE?
In reading other blog posts and the chat boards full of comments, many are suggesting that this is in line with the federal prediction of a constitutional crisis regarding the complete collapse of the dollar or the upcoming Massachusetts US Senate election coming up on next Tuesday, where it looks as if a Republican is going to win Ted Kennedy's seat (and the Senate may delay swearing him in until after the temporary replacement votes YEA on Healthcare).
IF the country ends up in a constitutional crisis, there are specific segments of the Exec Order that are more important - such as the State National Guard Troops (the organized state militias) now being under the authority of the President instead of the Governor of the states... like a private military run by the Council and NOT the Senate (who has constitutional authority over the federal army). Such a private army can be used, such as in China during the Tienanmen Square incident, where New York Guards may be called to deploy to deal with civil unrest in Texas or Alaska, where Texan or Alaskan Guard Troops may refuse to fight their neighbors...
The implications of such a consolidation of power mean only ONE thing, that the President is ready for some strategic maneuvers against the free citizens of the states.
Prove me wrong - leave me a comment with your predictions.
