I think I mentioned before that many, all or much of FEMA, emergencey Executive Orders were revoked or recinded. A lawyer friend of mine Diane looked
into this for me last year. Thank you Diane.
That does not mean that FEMA and the Patriot Act are not threats to National security. Kennedy passed these acts at a time when the US was threatend

Executive Order Number 12148 created the Federal Emergency Management Agency that is to interface with the Department of Defense for civil defense
planning and funding. An "emergency czar" was appointed. FEMA has only spent about 6 percent of its budget on national emergencies. The bulk of
their funding has been used for the construction of secret underground facilities to assure continuity of government in case of a major emergency,
foreign or domestic.
Executive Order Number 12656 appointed the National Security Council as the principal body that should consider emergency powers. This allows the
government to increase domestic intelligence and surveillance of U.S. citizens and would restrict the freedom of movement within the United States and
grant the government the right to isolate large groups of civilians. The National Guard could be federalized to seal all borders and take control of
U.S. air space and all ports of entry. 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:

It would be interesting to know how these executive orders were revoked and if they life on in any sort of amended Executive Order?
