Those documents are about 45 years old, so any science or tactical plans
they may contain on how to contain a bioterrorism incident would be
ridiculously out of date and technologically useless to anybody, but
politics is much the same now as it was then so they could still be very
useful to somebody who wants to become a dictator, and that's why the
powers that be don't want the American people to know anything about them.
This is a detailed plan on how a president can ignore the Constitution and
get away with it. By the way, was anybody else disturbed by the recent
farcical election in Wisconsin and the 5 to 4 decision by the Vichy
Justices on the Supreme Court not to extend the deadline for absentee
voting and what this may bode for the November 3 2020 Presidential

The Commander In Chief would strongly disagree with you. On March 13 he
issued a decree that started "*I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United
States, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of
the United States of America, including sections 201 and 301 of the
National Emergencies Act...*" Apparently he thought the authority vested in
him by the Constitution were not enough. And on that very same day he said "*I
have the right to do a lot of things that people don’t even know about*".

He's right, and that's something I rarely say about Trump, it's absolutely
true that almost nobody knows about those extraconstitutional powers,
but unfortunatly
I think we're going to find out.
