On the California Energy Crisis: As Seen and Said by the Salton Sea  

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

“Unless President George W. Bush abandons his present ways, his policies are now going to lead his administration toward a point, in the rapid unfolding of the current California energy-crisis, at which Bush will be confronted with a global crisis so horrifying, that most of you would not now even try to imagine it,” writes LaRouche. “For your own good, you, and President Bush, had better find the courage to face up to that reality, now, before it is too late. For the sake of all of us, please permit me to lead you, step by step, into discovering for yourselves, what it is that you need to know, if we all are to work our way out of this mess.”

Bush Sets Up Apparatus for Crisis Management

by Jeffrey Steinberg

The U.S. Commission on National Security has issued recommendations which include creation of a Cabinet-level agency to coordinate all internal security functions. The recent confirmation of John Ashcroft as Attorney General, and the Bush Administration’s hideous bungling of the western states’ energy crisis, create the strong prospect of these emergency powers being abused, and the country subjected to “rule by decree” police-state measures.
