writes "that GlobalResearch.ca reports that by executive order, the president of the United States signed into law directive NSPD 51 & HSPD 20, that in the event of a "catastrophic event" (that could be located anywhere in the world), the president can become what is best described as "a dictator":
"The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government." This directive, completely unnoticed by the media, and given no scrutiny by Congress, literally gives the White House unprecedented dictatorial power over the government and the country, bypassing the US Congress and obliterating the separation of powers. The directive also placed the Secretary of Homeland Security in charge of domestic "security".
Would the events of say Sept. 11th, 2001 or hurricane Katrina be "catastrophic events"? A critical analysis on the directive can be found here."Link to Original Source
