Benito Mussolini is Shrill! 

From Empire Burlesque:

George W. Bush has quietly renewed the infamous Executive Order 13303.


...In the order, Bush proclaims that any legal action taken for any reason against any American corporation dealing in "Iraqi petroleum products" at any point in the process – from well-head to gas-pump to boardroom – "constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security" of the United States.


Bush declares flatly that any "judicial process" launched against these protected entities "shall be deemed null and void."


how to guarantee that his partners and patrons won't be troubled by some rogue nation that still clings to the outmoded principle of law and order? Simple: one of the agencies authorized to "employ all powers" necessary "to carry out the purposes of this order" is our old friend, the Defense Department...


Fascism should rightly be called Corporatism as it is a merge of state and corporate power.
--- Benito Mussolini
