I think most of you are missing the significance of the National Emergency Declaration. This is not "business as usual". It is an extraordinary
declaration that has been made only a few times in history. The declaration of State or Local Emergencies are regular occurances...but not
This event has been seriously "under-reported" by the media, and its importance has been seriously "under-estimated" even by members of ATS. Such
a declaration serves more than just to provide a "heads-up" to the population at large. It is a formal declaration, sent to Congress, that
establishmes FEMA as the principal governing body during the emergency, which has been given extraordinary powers by a whole pleortha of presidential
orders and decrees.
These powers are ennumerated in another thread on this site: www.abovetopsecret.com...
but are worth repeating here.
FEMA was created in a series of Executive Orders. A Presidential Executive Order, whether Constitutional or not, becomes law simply by its publication
in the Federal Registry. Congress is by-passed.
Here are just a few Executive Orders associated with FEMA that would suspend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. These Executive Orders have been
on record for nearly 30 years and could be enacted by the stroke of a Presidential pen:
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 allows the government to seize all means of transportation, including personal cars, trucks or vehicles of any kind and total
control over all highways, seaports, and waterways.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 10999 allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be
abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into
effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders
issued over a fifteen year period.
•EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and
distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It
also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months.
Given these extraordinary and non-Constitutional powers, if you think the declaration of a National Emergency is trivial, then you need to think
again. It "sets the stage" for a complete "take over" by the Executive Branch of every aspect of American life--about which neither you, nor I,
nor Congress can have any say so whatsoever.
