Will Bush Declare A “National Emergency” And Stay In Office?

Those of you who heard my radio program back in 2001 know that I predicted
then that George W. Bush would do to the Republican Party much the same
thing that Bill Clinton did to the Democratic Party. However, I must
confess, I could not then realize the magnitude of that prediction.

Most of us remember that it was the election of Bill Clinton in 1992 that
was the impetus for the Republican revolution of 1994. If you recall, a
congressional election sweep of the magnitude of 1994 had not been seen in
the previous seventy years. It is a truism that Bill Clinton helped to elect
more Republicans than the Republican National Committee could ever dream
about. Now, the same thing is happening with George W. Bush. In spades!

Amazingly, the two issues that I predicated my prediction on have
materialized exactly as I said they would. I warned my audience in 2001 that
George W. Bush had every intention of invading Iraq, and once there, did not
plan to leave, but would probably seek to expand the war’s theatre. I also
predicted that Bush would seek to facilitate illegal immigration and create
the working group to create a hemispheric government.

I then said that if Bush did as I suspected he would, it would be the end of
the Republican Party as a major force in American politics. Looking back, I
cannot believe how right I was. And, make no mistake about it: I would love
to have been proven wrong.

George W. Bush is driving the GOP off the cliff. His mad infatuation with
Mexican immigration, and his unbelievably naïve and dangerous policies in
the Middle East are causing people to leave the Republican Party like rats
off a sinking ship.

In a recent CNN poll, fewer than 25% of the American people now identify
themselves as Republicans. If there is any saving grace for the GOP, it is
only found in the fact that a majority of people are also fed up with the
Democratic Party. Only 33% of the American people now identify themselves as
Democrats. Instead, a much larger percentage, some 42% of the American
people now identify themselves as Independents. However, it is the
Republican Party that will take the brunt of the voters’ wrath come next
year.

Even those who were willing to forgive Bush for taking us to war with Iraq
have no patience or mercy for his dogged determination to grant amnesty to
millions of illegal aliens, and to merge America into a regional commercial
entity with Mexico and Canada.

Add to the frustration of the GOP faithful the fact that the popular
frontrunners for next year’s elections are all conservative misfits. Rudy
Giuliani is a blatant liberal on most of the fundamental issues that
conservatives care about. Mitt Romney has flipped and flopped so many times,
he looks like a dying trout. And John McCain can kiss whatever campaign
hopes he had goodbye, as conservatives now realize that he is one of the
movers and shakers of the amnesty bill currently being shoved down our
throats. Some believe Fred Thompson can save the sinking ship, but he can’t.
He is too closely connected to Big Government interests to become 2008’s
version of Ronald Reagan. Ditto for Newt Gingrich.

Of course, Ron Paul is the man that could save the GOP in next year’s
general election, but the Republican machine would rather die than let him
win the nomination. Therefore, the GOP is in a self-destruct mode, and I
don’t believe anyone can do anything to prevent it.

Then again, perhaps George Bush knows something we don’t know. Writing for
World Net Daily, Dr. Jerry Corsi reports that President Bush has just signed
a Presidential Directive that would give the President dictatorial powers
should he decide to declare a “national emergency.”

Corsi writes, “President Bush, without so much as issuing a press statement,
on May 9 signed a directive that granted near dictatorial powers to the
office of the president in the event of a national emergency declared by the
president.

“The ‘National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive,’ with
the dual designation of NSPD-51, as a National Security Presidential
Directive, and HSPD-20, as a Homeland Security Presidential Directive,
establishes under the office of president a new National Continuity
Coordinator.”

Corsi continued by saying, “Translated into layman’s terms, when the
president determines a national emergency has occurred, the president can
declare to the office of the presidency powers usually assumed by dictators
to direct any and all government and business activities until the emergency
is declared over.”

In much the same way that President Bush has committed the United States to
a new hemispheric governmental entity with Mexico and Canada under the
Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) agreement, he has created a new
position of “National Continuity Coordinator,” complete with dictatorial
powers, without the knowledge or consent of Congress.

So, the sixty-four million dollar question seems to be, Is George W. Bush an
egomaniac, without conscience or regard for his own party, or is he a
bumbling, stumbling, simpleton-cowboy who is really as dumb as he talks, or
is he deliberately and meticulously (with much help, of course)
orchestrating America’s entrance into Daddy Bush’s “New World Order”? I
personally believe the correct answer is found behind curtain number three.

In any case, President Bush has almost single-handedly superintended the
destruction of the Republican Party, which by itself, is not necessarily a
bad thing. America desperately needs a strong Independent party that
respects America’s working men and women and submits to constitutional
government. Perhaps the demise of the GOP will create a void that such a
party can fill in 2008–providing that Bush has not become der Führer by
then.
