The premeditated usurption of power over the people.

A brief summary of presidential directives, executive orders, and congressionaly approved bills that where signed into law over the last 40 or so years.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) was iniated on March 31st, 1979 by Jimmy Carter through Executive Order 12127, and evolved through a series of presidential Directives that bypassed congress.

In May,2001 Bush announced that FEMA would expand its responsibility to include government response to terrorist attacks. Joe Allbaugh, head of FEMA, explained that this mission, dubbed "homeland defense", would focus on dealing with the effects of such attacks, but not extend to gathering intelligence to prevent them. This left the agency as one of the most visible responders in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks. At the time of the attacks, Bu$h appointee Joe Allbaugh was attending a conference in Big Sky, Montana, on the subject of emergency response.
