Chilling Executive Order Signed By Bush Allows For Martial Law In Event Of An Emergency–Doesn't Call For Congressional Oversight

Chilling Executive Order Signed By Bush Allows For Martial Law In Event Of An Emergency – Doesn't Call For Congressional Oversight

President Bush

(Best Syndication) With little fanfare President Bush singed National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive NSPD-51 / HSPD-20 which grants the Federal Government comprehensive powers in the event of “Catastrophic Emergency”. The document says it is intended to provide for “State, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and private sector organizations” in the event of an emergency, but some civil libertarians call the executive order a threat to our freedom.

The directive defines a catastrophic emergency as any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions.

[Best Syndication] Senator Hillary Clinton who is a Democratic presidential candidate got noticed for the online ad for her campaign for presidency.

Hillary Clinton has been picking a theme song for her campaign, which she has now chosen and is on her website www.hillaryclinton.com . There you can also watch the complete ad. You can also become a "Hillraiser."

The ad is set at a local diner, where she orders her husband a plate of carrot sticks. He was hoping for onion rings. All of the settings including the music in the background reflect the season finale episode of “The Sopranos” television show.

This is a smart move for their campaign, and has gained a softer more likeable personality for Hillary, which critics say that she was lacking previously.

President Vetoes Embryonic Stem Cell Research Bill – Adult and Umbilical Cord Cells Investigations Still Funded

President Vetoes Embryonic Stem Cell Research Bill – Adult and Umbilical Cord Cells Investigations Still Funded

Bush Wednesday

(Best Syndication) On Wednesday President Bush vetoed the second embryonic stem cell research bill that passed Congress while he has been in office. The only spending bill the President vetoed while the Republicans controlled the congress was the other previous embryonic stem cell research bill.

Many Democrats and some Republicans in congress promised voters they would support the legislation if elected. It is very unlikely the House of Representatives or Senate can muster the votes for an override.

To help squash some of the criticism, the President issued an executive order to encourage scientists to work on ways to derive stem cells without harming the embryo. Whitehouse spokesman Tony Snow said "This is, certainly not an attempt to muzzle science. It is an attempt, I think, to respect people's conscience on such an issue."

Modern Israel Not Fulfillment of Bible Prophecy

The best way for Israel to stop terrorist attacks in its territory is by first ceasing its occupation of all Arab lands and the continual, unrestrained building of Jewish settlements in the West Bank. In 1967 Israel went to war in self-defense and captured Arab land. Israel was right in defending itself.

However, the issue now is no longer so much self-defense. The problem is that Israel will not pull back to its pre-1967 borders so long as many Israelis and most evangelical Christians in America continue to believe that present day Jews have a biblical right to all of Arab territory in Palestine. For this reason a biblical examination of the issue is necessary.
As an evangelical Christian, of Indian origin, I wish to set the biblical issue in proper perspective.

(Best Syndication) The President briefed lawmakers about his European trip on Tuesday, but also made a plea to revive the immigration bill that was withdrawn by the Senate last week. The bill did not receive broad support because it included a provision that some called amnesty for illegal aliens.

The President told reporters “Some members in there believe that we need to move a comprehensive bill, some don't, I understand that. This is a highly emotional issue, but those of us standing here believe now is the time to move a comprehensive bill that enforces our borders and has good workplace enforcement, that doesn't grant automatic citizenship, that addresses this problem in a comprehensive way.”
