Our “State of Emergency”, Ongoing Since 1995:
What Does It Mean To You?
The United States is formally in an ongoing “state of emergency” which has been initiated, declared, maintained, and extended by our last few successive Chief Executive Officers. It was initially implemented on January 24, 1995 with the signing of Executive Order 12947 by President Bill Clinton. This “national emergency” was expanded in 1998 to include addi-tional targets such as Osama bin Laden, and was continued to 2008 by order of President George W. Bush, who declared an ongoing state of emergency on September 14, 2001 through Proclamation 7463, regarding the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Presi-dent Barack Obama extended George Bush’s Declaration of Emergency regarding terrorism on September 10, 2009, and again on September 10, 2010.
A “state of emergency” is a governmental declaration that may suspend normal functions
of the executive, legislative and judicial powers, alert citizens to change their normal beha-viors, or order government agencies to implement emergency preparedness plans. It can also be used as a rationale for suspending rights and freedoms, even if guaranteed under the constitution. Such declarations usually come during a time of natural or man-made dis-aster, a period of civil unrest, or following a declaration of war or situation of international or internal armed conflict.
An emergency declaration also allows the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to exercise its power to deal with emergency situations, and federal assistance becomes available to areas that are declared to be in a state of emergency. For FEMA, emergency declarations are different from the more common disaster declarations such as those imple-mented for hurricanes and floods. Typically, a state of emergency empowers the executive to name coordinating officials to deal with the situation and to override the normal proces-ses governing the passage of administrative rules. Rights and freedoms may be suspended during an emergency, for instance, freedom of movement.
FEMA and REX 84
According to various sources, there may be over 800 internment camps in the US, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA should mar-tial law ever need to be implemented in the United States, and all it would take is a presi-dential signature on a proclamation, and the attorney general’s signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached. Ask yourself if you really want to be on that list.
The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons.
Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub-programs which will be imple-mented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework for this operation.
The camps all have railroad tracks as well as roads leading to and from the detention facil-ities. Many also have an airport nearby. The majority of the camps can house a population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the largest of these facilities is just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive mental health facility and can hold approximately two million people. Now let’s review the justification for any actions taken…
Executive Orders associated with FEMA would suspend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. These Executive Orders have been on record for nearly 30 years and could be en-acted 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 super-vision.
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 popula-tions.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005
allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facili-ties.
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 econo-mic 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 Pres-ident.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049
assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolida-ting 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 institutions 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.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has broad powers in every aspect of the nation. General Frank Salzedo, chief of FEMA’s Civil Security Division stated in a 1983 conference that he saw FEMA’s role as a “new frontier in the protection of individual and governmental leaders from assassination, and of civil and military installations from sabotage and/or attack, as well as prevention of dissident groups from gaining access to U.S. opinion, or a global audience in times of crisis.” FEMA’s powers were consolidated by President Carter to incorporate the:
National Security Act of 1947
allows for the strategic relocation of industries, services, government and other essential economic activities, and to rationalize the requirements for manpower, resources and production facilities.
1950 Defense Production Act
gives the President sweeping powers over all aspects of the economy.
Act of August 29, 1916
authorizes the Secretary of the Army, in time of war, to take possession of any transpor-tation system for transporting troops, material, or any other purpose related to the emer-gency.
International Emergency Economic Powers Act
enables the President to seize the property of a foreign country or national. These powers were transferred to FEMA in a sweeping consolidation in 1979.
