Skip to comments.Things to watch for during a “Declared National Emergency”
Posted on 10/25/2009 8:04:24 PM PDT by STARWISE
When the Constitution of the United States was framed it placed the exclusive legislative authority in the hands of Congress and with the President. Article I, Section 1 of the United States Constitution is concise in its language:
All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
That is no longer true. The Bill of Rights protected Americans against loss of freedoms. That is no longer true. The Constitution provided for a balanced separation of powers. That is no longer applicable.
Perhaps it can be summed up succinctly in the words of arch-conservative activist Howard J Ruff:
Since the enactment of Executive Order 11490, the only thing standing between us and dictatorship is the good character of the President, and the lack of a crisis severe enough that the public would stand still for it.
Next we will look at all legislation passed or attempted by the dishonest Socialist regardless if they call themselves Progressive, Liberal, Independent, Republican, or Democrat.
If you have a computer you can look up the legislation.
Here are just a few Executive Orders 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 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 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.
Here are the later Executive Orders:
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.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 12148 created the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 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 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 granted 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. Many of the figures in the Iran-Contra scandal were part of this emergency contingent, including Marine Colonel Oliver North.
President Barack Obama declared the fast-spreading swine flu a national emergency Friday night, a move that authorizes federal officials to waive some requirements in dealing with the virus, such as letting hospitals set up separate facilities to keep patients with the virus from infecting others.
The White House announced Saturday that Obama had signed the proclamation, saying it will make it easier for healthcare providers to handle a surge in H1N1 patients" if necessary.
In a letter sent to Congress reporting the move, Obama wrote, the rapid increase in illness across the Nation may overburden health care resources and that the temporary waiver of certain standard Federal requirements may be warranted in order to enable U.S. health care facilities to implement emergency operations plans."
Since April, over 1,000 people have died and 20,000 people have been hospitalized by the virus. Thousands more have gotten sick from the flu with the onset of fall, resulting in mass absences from school and work across the country.
CDC officials estimated this week that 1 in 5 children had symptoms of H1N1.

If its Sunday, expect to find Obama golfing at Fort Belvoir. This week, though, his foursome includes Melody Barnes, President Obamas chief domestic policy advisor -- and the first woman whos played golf with Obama during his 24 trips to the links since taking office.
Barnes, wearing a baseball cap, dark long sleeve shirt and beige pants, joined Obama the same day that the New York Times is running a front page story, Mans World at White House? No Harm, No Foul, Aides Say, the latest in a round of similarly stories triggered by a high-profile, all-male basketball game the president played in earlier this month.
Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton initially told pool reporter Lynn Sweet it was not true that Barnes was the first woman to golf with Obama, but when the Chicago Sun-Times reporter emailed back to ask who the others were, Burton replied:
I was wrong about this - all apologies. He golfed with women on the campaign trail but not until Melody this year. Sorry to all the people who were unwittingly misled by what I gave the pooler. (4:19 p.m.)
~~Isn’t it neat? -44 can golf when we have
military commanders and brave troops who’ve
been patiently awaiting his word on support
and reinforcements for months, as they suffer
and die .. and we’re in the middle of a national
There’s got to be Karma ..
>> Theres got to be Karma ..
I don’t know about karma. I do know that there IS an Almighty God.
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” -Gal. 6:7
The real disaster is the failure of government to quarantine the sick. Now you must quarantine yourself and your family from ALL PUBLIC GATHERINGS!! Do not let your child go to schools!! Do home schooling for at least a year or your child may die of the Mexican Pig Flu!! The Virus has not even STARTED!!!
“CDC officials estimated this week that 1 in 5 children had symptoms of H1N1.”
Nothing to do with O golfing, but isn’t Rahm-E brother a member of National health board?
I’ve said that often ... God will not be mocked ...
and I believe it.
And I know it’s in His time, not ours.
bump for later read
Ezekiel Emanuel is a health advisor, I believe.
Emergency emergency everyone to get from streets!!!
The Gov't we have reflects the people..
Could be many of the people are corrupt.. maybe most..
else; they would rise up.. and revolt.. unless they are generally cowards..
Could be all the courageous ones are out of the country, fighting specters..
If so; that plan was brilliant..
There’s something big about to go down. Not sure what it is, but things just don’t feel right. Does anyone else have this feeling or am I just being paranoid?
Chairman 0bama’s declaration of a “National Emergency” gives me an uneasy feeling in the pit of my gut.
You are not alone.
I feel it too...I know he wants it...He needs it to further his take over but I DO NOT think he realizes what he is about to get.
We’ve all been waiting for God to act since March.
Thanks. At least we know there are 3 of us anyway.
“Swine flu a national emergency”
Well National, sure. But emergency, not. Just O, being PotUS, as should be.
Real stuff is, well real. Chicken Little I fear, is the friend of our enemy.
