Are you ready? Are you prepared for a disaster? The City of Mesa Emergency Management is sponsoring National Emergency Preparedness 2008 on Saturday, Sept. 27
National Emergency Preparedness 2008 is part of National Preparedness Month, created by a Presidential mandate following 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina to help citizens become better prepared for disasters.
More than 25 agencies, including Mesa Fire, Mesa Police and Mesa Utilities, are participating in National Emergency Preparedness 2008 with displays outside and inside Bass ProShops. The displays will include a variety of emergency disaster vehicles and apparatus, including helicopters, an emergency command van, fire trucks, mass decontamination equipment semi-trailer, bomb squad, SWAT Team truck and Army humvees
The Bush administration has taken this argument to new extremes, and supports a radical new view of executive power.
Their view is that, once Congress passed the Authorization for Use of Military Force in response to 9/11, all decisions relating to the response to terrorism are for the president alone to make, reducing the other two branches of government to advisory status.
Under this reading of the Constitution, the president has the authority to overrule both Congress and the courts, and interpret the Constitution, laws, and treaties of the United States as he sees fit in any matter related
It is time to think about the "unthinkable."
The Bush Administration has both the inclination and the power to cancel the 2008 election.
What's also clear is that this administration has a deep, profound and uncompromised contempt for democracy, for the rule of law, and for the US Constitution. When George W. Bush went on the record (twice) as saying he has nothing against dictatorship, as long as he can be dictator, it was a clear and present policy statement.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, I hereby declare that the national emergency has existed since September 11, 2001, and, pursuant to the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), I intend to utilize the following statutes: sections 123, 123a, 527, 2201(c), 12006, and 12302 of title 10, United States Code, and sections 331, 359, and 367 of title 14, United States Code.
Al Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America ... and Obama is worried about the police reading people their rights?
In addressing the financial crisis gripping the nation and the world on Friday, President George Bush reassured Americans that their money in traditional checking accounts, savings accounts and certificates of deposit is safe and that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is still financially able to back up those deposits.
The Treasury Department has asked Congress to give it sweeping power to buy up toxic debt that has nearly paralyzed Wall Street.
Bush also has authorized Treasury to tap up to $50 billion from a Depression-era fund to insure the holdings of eligible money market mutual funds. And the Federal Reserve announced it will expand its emergency lending program to help support the $2 trillion in assets of the funds
FEMA has activated a national emergency family registry as well as a child locator center to help people find members of their family who may become separated as a result of the storm.
WASHINGTON (AP) - A new Federal Emergency Management Agency locator system has been set up to help people displaced by Hurricane Gustav get in touch with family members.
People who sign up with the National Emergency Family Registry Locator can let up to s
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) (NEA), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code,
I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, find that the current existence and risk of the proliferation of weapons-usable fissile material on the Korean Peninsula constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.
Sec. 3. (a) Any transaction by a United States person or within the United States that evades or avoids, has the purpose of evading or avoiding, or attempts to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.
(b) Any conspiracy formed to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.
Sec. 4. For the purposes of this order:
(a) the term "person" means an individual or entity;
(b) the term "entity" means a partnership, association, trust, joint venture, corporation, group, subgroup, or other organization; and
Sec. 5. The Secretary of the Treasury, after consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to take such actions, including the promulgation of rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to the President by IEEPA as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of this order.
By next week, sheriff’s deputies will institute martial law, forcing remaining residents out of the area.
Transportation to the area is cut off. The Bolivar Ferry will be down for months. There is no estimate on when the service will return.
Washington - Some 1 500 US troops were prepared to respond on Friday as Hurricane Ike roared toward Texas
Plans call for sending the USS Nassau, an amphibious assault ship, from Norfolk, Virginia to the Gulf loaded with helicopters, landing craft and a humanitarian relief team, he said.
Whitman said the military also has identified six bases across the south-eastern United States that will be used as staging areas for post-storm relief logistics.
Thus, Congress has empowered Bush just as Germany's Reichstag empowered Hitler, Wolf writes, recalling Hitler's boast, "Democracy will be overthrown with the tools of democracy."
Privacy in America today as guaranteed by the Constitution is fast becoming a memory. The New York Times reported the government in 2005 was monitoring your e-mail and telephone talk without legal warrants and the following year the newspaper disclosed U.S. treasury officials, with CIA help, "were reviewing millions of private bank transactions without individual court-ordered warrants or subpoenas," Wolf pointed out.
One method of intimidation is to limit a citizen's right to travel freely. The Bush regime has created "watch"(75,000 names) and "no fly"(45,000 names) lists that restrict individuals' air travel--and those searched and/or stopped from flying can complain all they like because it won't do them any good.

Order Of The Garter
(Inner Core of The Committee of 300 also Knights of the Garter)
Order of the Garter is the core of the Committee Of 300 (aka Olympians). Queen Elizabeth II is the leader of this organization.
Its members include most if not all of the royal British family along with, many peers of the realm including Lord Rothschild, as well as other European nobility, and a slew of other wealthy individuals scattered across Europe and America.
These elite own businesses on every level, especially the oil and banking industry. George Bush is a recent member who was knighted by the Queen on December 20, 1993, as a Knight Grand Cross of the Most Honorable Order of the Bath.
