You would be surprised the amount of people who do not know about the National Emergency Act and what it means to them once a National Emergency has been declared like the current effort blaming H1N1.


Quote from Wikipedia : National Emergency Act

The National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601-1651) is a United States federal law passed in 1976 to stop open-ended states of national emergency and formalize the power of Congress to provide certain checks and balances on the emergency powers of the President.

The act sets a limit of two years on states of national emergency.

It also imposes certain "procedural formalities" on the President when invoking such powers.

The perceived need for the law arose from the scope and number of laws granting special powers to the executive in times of national emergency (or public danger).

At least two constitutional rights are subject to revocation during a state of emergency:

The right of habeas corpus, under Article 1, Section 9;

The right to a grand jury for members of the National Guard when in actual service, under Fifth Amendment.

In addition, many provisions of statutory law are contingent on a state of national emergency, as many as 500 by one count.

It was due in part to concern that a declaration of "emergency" for one purpose should not invoke every possible executive emergency power that Congress in 1976 passed the National Emergencies Act.

Among other provisions, this act requires the President to declare formally a national emergency and to specify the statutory authorities to be used under such a declaration.

There were 32 declared national emergencies between 1976 and 2001.

Most of these were for the purpose of restricting trade with certain foreign entities under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) (50 U.S.C. 1701-1707).

I began this thread because of the topic of National Emergency being prevalent on ATS.

As well the threads below and any others which may be supplied by other ATS'ers.

Obama Declares National Medical Emergency on H1N1 Flu

Could THIS be the reason for the H1N1 "National Emergency"? (Bank related...)

Bush Declares National Emergency? why?

This is something more than banks. Could be Iran has a nuke ready and the threat of burning is real. Further if a nuke is exploded in the atmosphere it creates a EMP and all computer records are damaged, so banks were backing up files in haste.

I like to believe our great government is on top of this and doing their best so our free lifestyles won't be interupted. But they also are realistic and plan for the worst. We are the most powerful and detailed nation on the planet and have lots of enemies who are growing in power. It's not wasy to avoid occasional conflict. But we do it with class!!!

Habeus Corpus is defined as the following :


Quote from : Wikipedia : Habeus Corpus

Habeas corpus (pronounced /ˌheɪbiːəs ˈkɔrpəs/) (Latin: You (shall) have the body) is a legal action, or writ, through which a person can seek relief from the unlawful detention of him or herself, or of another person.

It protects the individual from harming him or herself, or from being harmed by the judicial system.

Of English origin, the writ of habeas corpus has historically been an important instrument for the safeguarding of individual freedom against arbitrary state action.


This mean that if you are apprehended you cannot expect the usual course of law to be your salvation if you know your rights, choose to seek legal counsel, and or think that you have the right to seek legal action.

I was only pointing out that someone else was speaking on the banking issues, as well as Swine Flu being causations for the National Emergency Act being invoked by President Barack Obama.

It is troubling to say the least and I had hoped this would never happen during my lifetime.

Good morning Leonidas. Excellent thread. I just started putting together a thread with this information. You have just saved me a lot of work, I guess I better get started on chores.


S&F for all the info. Question: I was building my thread to post a connection to the thread I had started on Obama declaring a National Medical Emergency. Could I post a link to this thread on mine? That way if anyone asks themselves what does National Emergency mean, they will have a place to look. All hail King Leonidas
All reference to your thread will have your name referenced. Look forward to hearing from you.

I'm just not buying the US government taking over the population of the US. There's not enough manpower and the motivation would only be if there was a foreign force behind it... like the Caliphate and Islam.
If that's the case and Obama is the Manchurian Candidate of Islam then it could get interesting as the US military will go against the president.

The question people should be asking themselves is if this all is a flase flag operation.

Hoist the Flag : False Flags, Agent Provocateurs, and Black Box Operations

First, the economy is collpasing due to negligence of Bush, and nothing from Obama.

Second, a pandemic, that could have been stopped at the border.

Third, the border has been militarized since Bush, so why was nothing done?

Was I right in the thread below or even in the one above?

I would like to see what statutes are to be used-maybe FOIA request, might get an answer in 2 years. This is the one that scares me about our government. With EVERYTHING that is going on, how do we know this is why the Emergency Declaration was made? Does the Declaration remain secret or can it be made to be kept secret? What I am wondering is, if this is actually for the Banking/Money crisis, could they release it as for the Flu and make excuses to Congress and themselves to keep that part secret? To keep a panic or free for all on withdrawals of money from the banks?



(a) Maintenance of file and index of Presidential orders, rules and regulations during national emergency When the President declares a national emergency, or Congress declares war, the President shall be responsible for maintaining a file and index of all significant orders of the President, including Executive orders and proclamations, and each Executive agency shall maintain a file and index of all rules and regulations, issued during such emergency or war issued pursuant to such declarations.


I would like to see this when its "OVER", if it will be over.

Interesting times indeed.

I'm sure there's something on the White House website that might be informative.

I just haven't made the time to look it up.

I do know by law Obama has to supply the statutes in order to declare a National Emergency.

Care to expand on that a bit?

I'm all ears of course since Blackwater/Xe is one of the people handling Martial Law.

Martial Law falls under National Emergency.

The funny thing is that most people do not know there was a conspiracy surrounding the events of one Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing in that militias were rounded up and offered funding if they cooperated with the Clinton Administration.

However, that is off topic, unless someone can provide me with a correlation of National Emergency and Clinton to prove it, it was something I read and I do not know where I had found the source since it was so long ago.

Yes, you are correct, Blackwater/Xe was who stepped in after Katrina.

Another examle of a National Emergency, because of the crisis involved, and many states being affected.

That sure is one theory that's been out there.

Yet to be seen though.

Guess we will see once the order for Martial Law is declared, or a round up.
