Bush announces imminent dictatorship


Richard Moore

         Under [the] plan, he entrusts himself with leading the entire
         federal government, not just the Executive Branch. And he
         gives himself the responsibility "for ensuring
         constitutional government."

We need only to await the next false-flag incident. Let's hope it 
doesn't come to a theater near you.

Bush Anoints Himself as the Insurer of Constitutional Government in Emergency

By Matthew Rothschild
May 18, 2007

With scarcely a mention in the mainstream media, President Bush has 
ordered up a plan for responding to a catastrophic attack.

In a new National Security Presidential Directive, Bush lays out his 
plans for dealing with a "catastrophic emergency."

Under that plan, he entrusts himself with leading the entire federal 
government, not just the Executive Branch. And he gives himself the 
responsibility "for ensuring constitutional government."

He laid this all out in a document entitled "National Security 
Presidential Directive/NSPD 51" and "Homeland Security Presidential 

The White House released it on May 9.

Other than a discussion on Daily Kos led off by a posting by Leo 
Fender, and a pro-forma notice in a couple of mainstream newspapers, 
this document has gone unremarked upon.

The subject of the document is entitled "National Continuity Policy."

It defines a "catastrophic emergency" as "any incident, regardless of 
location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, 
damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, 
infrastructure, environment, economy, or government function."

This could mean another 9/11, or another Katrina, or a major 
earthquake in California, I imagine, since it says it would include 
"localized acts of nature, accidents, and technological or 
attack-related emergencies."

The document emphasizes the need to ensure "the continued function of 
our form of government under the Constitution, including the 
functioning of the three separate branches of government," it states.

But it says flat out: "The President shall lead the activities of the 
Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government."

The document waves at the need to work closely with the other two 
branches, saying there will be "a cooperative effort among the 
executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Federal 
Government." But this effort will be "coordinated by the President, 
as a matter of comity with respect to the legislative and judicial

branches and with proper respect for the constitutional separation of powers."

Among the efforts coordinated by the President would ensuring the 
capability of the three branches of government to "provide for 
orderly succession" and "appropriate transition of leadership."

The document designates a National Continuity Coordinator, who would 
be the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and 

Currently holding that post is Frances Fragos Townsend.

She is required to develop a National Continuity Implementation Plan 
and submit it within 90 days.

As part of that plan, she is not only to devise procedures for the 
Executive Branch but also give guidance to "state, local, 
territorial, and tribal governments, and private sector owners and 
operators of critical infrastructure."

The secretary of Homeland Security is also directed to develop 
planning guidance for "private sector critical infrastructure owners 
and operators," as well as state, local, territorial, and tribal 

The document gives the Vice President a role in implementing the 
provisions of the contingency plans.

"This directive shall be implanted in a manner that is consistent 
with, and facilitates effective implementation of, provisions of the 
Constitution concerning succession to the Presidency or the exercise 
of its powers, and the Presidential Succession Act of 1947 (3 USC 
19), with the consultation of the Vice President and, as appropriate, 
others involved."

The document also contains "classified Continuity Annexes."
