News with Attitude – 6/3/2007

I’m the Decider

It is hardly surprising not a single corporate newspaper reported the death of the Constitution. Go to Google News and type in “National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive” and hit enter. Google returns ten paltry results, not one from the New York Times, the Washington Post, or related corporate media source. Google Trends rates the story as “mild,” that is to say it warrants nary a blip on the news radar screen. Of course, another death blow to the Constitution, already long on life support, is hardly news. Few understand we now live in a dictatorship, or maybe it should be called a decidership.

As the nation focused on whether Congress would exercise its constitutional duty to cut funding for the war, Bush quietly issued an unconstitutional bombshell that went virtually unnoticed by the corporate media.
The National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive, signed on May 9, 2007, would place all governmental power in the hands of the President and effectively abolish the checks and balances in the Constitution.
If a “catastrophic emergency” – which could include a terrorist attack or a natural disaster – occurs, Bush’s new directive says: “The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government.”

Now that the reprehensible neocon Paul Wolfowitz is out of the way at the World Bank, it is time for our rulers to nominate yet another reprehensible neocon to the post. Said neocon is Robert Zoellick, PNAC signatory, and a former director of the Aspen Institute Strategy Group, a “non-profit” set-up and bankrolled by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Carnegie Corporation, and the Ford foundation. Zoellick is of course the perfect choice, as he worked in the “private sector” for Goldman Sachs, Enron, and Fannie Mae, in other words he is a seasoned cut-throat operator, ready to inflict neoliberal globalism and loan shark schemes on the impoverished masses, most of them living on less than two dollars a day. If Zoellick and the “private sector” have their way, billions will live on less than a dollar a day.
