Students in history will remember that the ... and even in ancient Rome the consuls, who wanted to become Emperors or Dictators declared Emergencies and then they said they were the, well, they were the Emperor in charge of solving the problem. This new National Security and Homeland Security National Security Directive 51 Homeland Security Directive 20 Have no requirement to go to Congress and say nothing about how these directives complied with or superseed the National Emergency Act requirement to notify Congress. Don't believe it? See for yourself... Some of the least noticed and least discussed changes in the law are the changes made to the Insurrection Act 1807 and to Possi Comitatus by the Defense Authorization Act of 2007. These changes pose a threat to the survival of our Republic by giving the president the power to declare Martial Law for as little reason as to restore public order. The 1807 Act severely restricted the President in his use of military within the USA borders. And the Possi Comitatus Act of 1878 strengthened these restrictions with strict oversight by Congress. The new law allows the president to circumvent the restrictions of both laws the Insurrection Act has now become the: "The enforcement of the laws to restore public order act." This is hardly a title to suggest that the authors cared about or understood of the nature of the Constitutional Republic. Now, ... Martial Law can be declared not just for insurrection, but also for natural disasters, public health reasons, terrorist attacks or incidents, or for the vague reason called "Other Conditions"! The President can call up the National Guard without Congressional approval or ... the Governor's approval and even send the state guard troops into other states! The American Republic is in remnant status. The stage is set for our country eventually devolving into a military dictatorship and few seem to care. These precedent setting changes in the law are extremely dangerous, it will change American Judisprudence forever if not revised. The beneficial results of our revolt against the King's abuses are about to be elliminated and few members of Congress and few Americans are aware of the seriousnes of the situation. Wake up!
