President Obama Declares National Emergency

President Barack Obama has declared yet another National Emergency in order to extend his powers under The National Emergencies Act.

Martial Law People FightingThe National Emergencies Act, which was first enacted in 1976, was written to make sure that the President of the United States would have various powers during times of emergency. The Act also set strict timelines to prevent any one president from using these powers for an indefinite amount of time.

With this new extension President Obama is setting a disturbing trend that was started by President Bush right after the September 11th attacks. On September 14, 2001, President Bush enacted a National State of Emergency. Since that date both President Bush and Obama have managed to extend their power year after year by declaring various states of emergency.

A Long List of Questionable  Executive Order

A couple of months back we highlighted a number of questionable Executive Orders that some people speculated were preparing this country for Marital Law. While some in the mainstream media would like you to believe that these are just conspiracy theories created by crackpots hiding in their mothers basements, it seems some lawmakers can now be added to that crowd.

A couple of months back, Congress Woman Kay Granger of Texas issued a Press Release warning of the Presidents unprecedented power grab. In the letter she warned that President Obama and the Federal government had passed an Executive Order giving them the power to take over all the fundamental parts of our economy – in the name of national security – in times of national emergency.

She goes on to warn:

This means all of our water resources, construction services and materials (steel, concrete, etc.), our civil transportation system, food and health resources, our energy supplies including oil and natural gas – even farm equipment – can be taken over by the President and his cabinet secretaries.  The Government can also draft U.S. citizens into the military and force U.S. citizens to fulfill “labor requirements” for the purposes of “national defense.”  There is not even any Congressional oversight, only briefings are required.

It is still unclear why this order was signed now, and what the consequences are for our nation – especially during times of peace.  This type of Martial Law imposes a government takeover on U.S. citizens that is typically reserved for national emergencies, not in a time of relative peace.

Power Grab

Do Not Discuss Propaganda PosterFrom the NDAA that gave the President the power to indefinitely detain American Citizens to the huge urban warfare drills in Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles , and Tampa; The United States is starting to look more and more like we are actually in the middle of a national emergency.

These unchecked powers will some day come back to haunt us.

Even if this President never abuses these powers, the very fact that they have been enacted sets a dangerous trend that will ultimately lead to a country that looks nothing like what our founders intended. No one man or office should ever have unlimited authority over the people. Whether you agree with the person in office or not, this much power in one person’s hands is not a very comforting thought.

    Hi ~ I normally agree with your stance against Obama and did not like the last executive orders he signed in Jan and Mar 2012 giving him sole power etc. ~ but I reviewed the newest executive order and this does not fall into the category of the prior two executive orders… “U.S. President Barack Obama has ordered a one-year extension of the U.S. national emergency over Russian atomic material suitable for use in nuclear weapons. Obama submitted a notice of the extension for publication in the U.S. Federal Register on Monday. “The accumulation of a large volume of weapons-usable fissile material in the territory of the Russian Federation continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States,” Obama said in a message to the U.S. Congress accompanying the notice.
    “For this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue the national emergency declared with respect to the risk of nuclear proliferation created by the accumulation of a large volume of weapons-usable fissile material in the territory of the Russian Federation and maintain in force these emergency authorities to respond to this threat,” he said. The national emergency over Russian nuke material was declared in Executive Order 13159 of June 21, 2000 by the then-president Bill Clinton. It has been extended annually ever since. The extension of the emergency is necessary to support the execution of a 1993 Moscow-Washington agreement on eliminating highly enriched uranium removed from Russian nuclear warheads (the so-called HEU-LEU agreement)”

    The 1 yr extension on this order sounds right in protecting the US ~ Ive been worried about a nuke exploding over the US and causing an EMP attack, wiping out our power grid and anything electrical. So I commend this extension. AniOre

      100% wrong on your assessment. This has nothing to do with stopping Russia. If Obama gave two shits about Russia he wouldn’t be rolling over to please them at every turn. He also wouldn’t have disarmed our nuclear warheads.

      Obama and every idiot before him have used one excuse after another to extend this act. If it wasn’t the Russian excuse it would have been something else. We all know he will do nothing to stop Russia.

        The true threat is the Muslim Movement in the United States. it is necessary to find out how much power Obama has given them. They are part of Homeland Security and numerous other important positions in this country. Their goal is to “Destroy the U.
        S. from within”. They have a good grasp. do you?

    • LiberTEA Vet says:

      You mean the uranium rights our govt gave them are the reason it was extended this year instead of a falsified terrorist threat? Right about the same time they decided to invite armed Russian troops to CO to train with us? Shocking… NOT – have you woke up yet?

    This should make it clearer for those of logic who understand false flags and why they are implemented. Give a little of your freedom for security. Welcome to your police state and your eventual funeral. Should make it far clearer why two steel-framed structures free-fell to the ground on that fateful day and why WTC 7 was announced as fallen before it actually happened. Cause and effect.

  5. Clint says:

    BTW: I can understand Russia’s proliferation issue as they sit back and watch one middle eastern nation fall after another–only to see the US driving the war machine. Parking a “missile shield” in Europe might pose a bit of a threat as well.

  6. Bev says:

    This admin. does NOTHING positive for America. ANY EO he signs is for his benefit only and not for ours. The Patriot Act needs to go permanently and so does half of govt. – PUBLIC SECTOR EMPLOYEES, i.e. Fed. workers!
    VOTE SMART. NOBAMA 2012!!

    We will know more by October.

    This explains all the amunition being bought.
    BO says one thing and does another,smoke and mirrors. We already know he hates the Constitution, and views it as an henderance.
    The media is totally silent because they are in the pocket of the DNC!!!
