Karate moves

Kurt Nimmo - The Death of a Constitutional Republic;

In other words, Bush wants to erase yet another constitutional amendment—the Tenth, which states “powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people”—and he is using the misfortune of Katrina as an opportunistic wrecking ball. “Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco and Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour declined the president’s offer to federalize the state’s National Guard troops in the aftermath of Katrina. So Mr. Bush wants Congress to consider empowering the Pentagon with automatic control.” In other words, the misery and suffering of the people of Louisiana—deliberately exacerbated by FEMA and the Ministry of Homeland Security—will serve as a red carpet for Bush to systematically dismantle the cornerstone of the United States, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It is, at minimum and as a start, a death knell for Posse Comitatus.

In much the same way as they've used the effect of 9/11, these guys are using the weight and momentum of this disaster to flip the Constitution on its back and knock it out.

It seems to be a trend amongst Western Democracies at the moment.
