Notice: Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to the Western Balkans


RSS Feed White House News

On June 26, 2001, by Executive Order 13219, I declared a national emergency with respect to the Western Balkans pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States constituted by the actions of persons engaged in, or assisting, sponsoring, or supporting (i) extremist violence in the Republic of Macedonia and elsewhere in the Western Balkans region, or (ii) acts obstructing implementation of the Dayton Accords in Bosnia or United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 of June 10, 1999, in Kosovo. I subsequently amended that order in Executive Order 13304 of May 28, 2003.

Because the actions of persons threatening the peace and international stabilization efforts in the Western Balkans continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, the national emergency declared on June 26, 2001, and the measures adopted on that date and thereafter to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond June 26, 2008. Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency with respect to the Western Balkans.

This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.

GEORGE W. BUSH

THE WHITE HOUSE,

June 24, 2008.

I apologize if I missed it, and for not seeing it if its obvious:

If we have established that this was merely the President's way of furthering a diplomatic solution to the perceived NK problem, why is the National Emergency language there and what does it mean?

Thanks.

I seriously believe that George W has no intention of relinquishing his presidency (if you can call it that). He is either setting up for a ´legal´ next term - or (my personal belief) he is setting up to forcibly remain in power in the form of a dictator.

Psychopump,

Please tell me you'll still be an active memeber here in late January 2009 so we can discuss your prediction of GWB's dictatorship.

Also, Am I to assume based on your signature you aspire to be a well fed poor person?

I look forward to creating that thread.

Whoa, hold on. I didn't say I respect HIM, I said there are things that I do not know, because I am not in the loop. I respect the office. Even if he is a usurper, I do not know enough about the facts to make that determination. However, I do know that almost all politicians are lawyers, and judges, too. And they are immoral, godless, wicked people. There is an exception to every rule, and I think the exception to THAT rule is lawyers. 'Woe to you lawyers'. If Nemesis really passes us in 2012, it all won't matter anyway.


It just seems to me that the "office" is a hollow shell, and that any respect due is due to the one holding the office.

As for facts... How much more do you need...? The "Patriot" Act, the secret presidential decrees, the lies (weapons of mass destruction...), the behavior (flipping the bird...), the things he supports ("preemptive" war - i.e., aggression), and the fact that his faction gave us 9/11 as a new Pearl Harbor.

And you can't look at that man with disgust, with respect the furthest thing from your mind?

And believe me, most lawyers are out looking for the easiest way to make more money for themselves. I have known one lawyer I respected (he undercharged me and did an awesome job), but all other lawyers I have dealt with gave me the creeps in their persistence to "sue!" or otherwise litigate.

Have you seen the footage of Bohemian Grove...? Bush was there.

I still have yet to find a single person predicting Bush won't leave office that is willing to make a wager based on said prediction. I wonder why that is...

Because there are many factions at work. Plans might be thwarted and abandoned for the time being. But I can assure you, if they think they can pull it off...they will.

Does that make any sense?

Evening everyone!!

I have a twist that I haven't seen posted yet.

What if US intel has North Korea backing Iran and the two of them are in this together?

When the neighborhood bully used to come around, we gang up on him. If I was Iran, I'd be looking for friends. Particularity NUCLEAR friends.
My take on the NK ending it nuke program is most likely posted somewhere here on ATS, but I'll state it anyway.
They shut down the program because they got enough material to have WMD's already, built and launch able.
We go into Iran, they launch at Israel and then NK launches at SK or CONUS.

Just a thought.

Clever and brilliant observation SystemiK! Look-it, all great societies eventually end; thousands of years of human history prove this cycle. It's going to happen to the US too - we are not exempt from the human condition...but why spend so much time and energy proclaiming the inevitable? As on the Titanic - let the band play on!

Maybe I'm missing the point here, just looks like more of the same 9/11 Conspiracy Bush Basing moveon.org sheepole.

Sent forth by the "Progressive Democrats" Let's call them what they are - Socialists and Communists hell bent on Destroying America and the people that are FREE to decide their own fate!

Blame America for everything bad in the World!

I've spent a lifetime working to better my Family. I always came in second with regards to my Family, yet I was able to better myself in that process. The Government cannot control you unless you let them do so and accept their hand outs.

America is a Consitutional Republic, NOT a Democracy. Sheepole need to wake up to that!

We are living in a Time that has seen and will see many changes.

The human race has seen such changes before and will see after we are all dust.

Read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights... learn it well it will help in the coming times. No the end is not as near as many want you to believe.

Soon we shall see a new beginning and it's not one of cumbya let's hug, sing songs and be friends with our enemies that want to kill us because we believe in Freedom!

Too bad the idiot that posted this didn't bother to post the entire document that he is quoting from.

But then again, if he had done that, he would have destroyed his entire thesis that there is some kind of a conspiracy here.

Oh well, once again, the ignorant follow the ignorant. And none of them will ever learn to actually read the entire relevant document.

Yep, it's so much easier to believe that there is some kind of a vast conspiracy out there, that only YOU really understand.

Well let's see..... if Bush doesn't leave office, then the internet as we know it will likely cease to exist (for national security reasons of course), and many financial institutions wil go belly up.

So........ pretty stupid bet if you can't collect your "winnings" don't ya think?

I'll bet you any amount that you die before me. Makes exactly as much sense as the wager you propose.

I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, find that the current existence and risk of the proliferation of weapons-usable fissile material on the Korean Peninsula constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States
I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.
what does this mean?


It means America has to keep the "fear factor" on the American peoples throats. Declare national emergencies at a drop of a dime, then lie... with the tongue of the devil... do anything... to scare the sheep back in their shrinking pastures.

Some Americans will follow this moron off the cliff of no return and say they love it! The rest, will gladly turn their backs and bend over a trees with no Vasaline for their cammander and thief.


Amercan citizens have become the most brainwashed humans on the planet!

Of course they will. The party controlling Congress is on the verge of controlling two branches of government. In light of this, do you actually think they would allow Bush a third term?


Well....yeah....he was allowed a second (and first) term was he not? Even after many people became aware that the election was rigged. So, why would they not allow a third?

Notice: Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to Certain Terrorist Attacks

August 28, 2008


Consistent with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency I declared on September 14, 2001, in Proclamation 7463, with respect to the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center, New York, New York, the Pentagon, and aboard United Airlines flight 93, and the continuing and immediate threat of further attacks on the United States.

Because the terrorist threat continues, the national emergency declared on September 14, 2001, and the powers and authorities adopted to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond September 14, 2008. Therefore, I am continuing in effect for an additional year the national emergency I declared on September 14, 2001, with respect to the terrorist threat.

This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.

GEORGE W. BUSH
