  • 76 Year Long State of National Emergency

    This sort of ties into my thread Beware the Gold Fringed Flag but this is by far MUCH MUCH scarier. This thread is all about the CURRENT State of National Emergency.( called SNE or SNE's from here on)

    There have been 6 declared SNE's since 1933. Only TWO of those have been ended, the other four including the one from 1933 are STILL in effect to this day. Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719 is the one from the Roosevelt Administration that he enacted just five days after taking the oath of office, they used to take the oath in early MArch. Now this act is phrased in an unusual manner. Instead of saying that the act will become invalid after a certain point in time or that "I, Franklin Roosevelt" will invalidate this act by such and such a date he states the the PRESIDENT shall end this State of Emergency at the time he sees fit to do so. This effectively menas that ONLY a President can nullify it. Roosevelt nor anyone else has ever ended it.

    Like I said there are three others besides this one that are still in effect but I am focusing on this one . Now in 1973 the Senate set up a committee to try and end the four SNE's that were still in effect and they found that there was no legal was to do so. Senate Report 93-549 (93rd Congress, 1st Session, 1973), (Exhibit 2), is where you want to go to read about the committees findings and the documentation to back me up.

    What makes this State of Declared National Emergency so scary is the baggage that comes with it.
    1. Due to the never retired expanded maritime act(Trading with the Enemy Act) which lets the President or gov agency designate "enemies of the state" the citizen may now find themselves arrested, their property seized, or even forcibly moved.
    2. Don't think that habeus corpus will help you, it won't. During a SNE it can be suspended indefinitely. Even though the Constitution states "The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it." Now think carefully about number one. The President can declare the citizenry under that act to be acting to the detriment of the country and declare them rebels or resistance and voila habeus corpus is now kaput.
    3. The constitution also provides an exemption from the privilege of a grand jury hearing for cases arising in the military when in service in a time of "public danger". In other words military units would be exempt from civilian law if putting down "rioters" or some such.

    Now you might ask me about the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601-1651). Well people assume that it ended the 4 open ended SNE's but it didn't. All it did was to state that any FUTURE SNE's cannot last long than two years from the date of creation. As for the four others? They are still in effect to this day and look to be with us until the US is no more.

    Think about the ramifications of these SNE's. Think about what can be done to law abiding citizens with these SNE's.

    Scary is it not?
