If the President has the power to overrule the Posse Comitatus Act
and use the National Security Agency, a military organization, to spy on Americans why couldn't he use the military to save Americans from the flood waters in New Orleans without the permission of the governor of Louisiana?
If we are at war as a result of 9/11 why didn't Congress issue a declaration of war instead of an Authorization for Use of Military Force
If they felt hemmed in by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act

The President is selected by a majority of 535 electors. Each state has the right to designate its share of the total by any means it finds appropriate.

How can someone receiving fewer actual votes than most small town mayors unilaterally decide that the law of the land is not binding?
