UPDATE ON THE AMERICAN FASCISTAS

UPDATE ON THE AMERICAN FASCISTAS

The Decider

Even Time Magazine recognizes “An Administration’s Epic Collapse” and “America’s Broken Down Army” (Time)

Bush’s speech on September 6, 2006 amounted to a public confession to criminal violations of the 1996 War Crimes Act. He implicitly admitted authorizing disappearances, extrajudicial imprisonment, torture, transporting prisoners between countries and denying the International Committee of the Red Cross access to prisoners. These are all serious violations of the Geneva Conventions. The War Crimes Act makes grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions and all violations of Common Article 3 punishable by fines, imprisonment or, if death results to the victim, the death penalty.

New “presidential” directive gives Bush dictatorial powers (Alex Jones)

EXCERPT: The National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive , signed on May 9, 2007 declares that in the event of a “catastrophic event”, George W. Bush 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”.”

[Full text is at the link] A critical analysis on the directive can be found here. 

Fascist America in 10 easy steps (Guardian, UK): 1) invoke a terrifying internal external enemy, 2) create a gulag, 3) develop a thug caste, 4) set up an internal surveillance system, 5) harass citizen’s groups, 6) engage in arbitrary detention and release, 7) target key individuals, 8: control the press, 9) dissent equals treason, 10) suspend the rule of law

Over TWENTY SIX THOUSAND illegal aliens being held in prisons, sometimes in tents, without access to family or lawyers, or plans to deport them (Breitbart.com). This is the slow crawl of fascism… first they came for the illegal immigrants?
