There is no mistaking this for anything but a naked power grab. Please consider the points this author made in "How Dare You Want To Know What "Your" Government Is Doing!".

As Thomas Jefferson warned us:
"When all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated."
