In order to provide an example of just how good a lead this posting is, consider the following:
“Senate Report 93-549” (The United States has been under dictatorial control since March 9, 1933. Report of the Special Committee on the
Termination of the National Emergency, Senate Report 93-549, War and Emergency Powers Acts, November 19, 1973. “Foreword: Since March 9, 1933, the
United States has been in a state of declared national emergency.
These proclamations give force to 470 provisions of Federal law. These hundreds of statutes delegate to the President extraordinary powers, ordinarily
exercised by the Congress, which affect the lives of American citizens in a host of all-encompassing manners.
This vast range of powers, taken together, confer enough authority to rule the country without reference to normal Constitutional processes.
Under the powers delegated by these statutes, the President may: seize property; organize and control the means of production; seize commodities;
assign military forces abroad; institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and communication; regulate the operation of private
enterprise; restrict travel; and, in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens.”)
This should answer some the burning questions of how Obama can do what he does and get away with it. The previous quote explained why he can do so and
get away with it.
Thanks for the posting and thanks again for such a good lead.
