Permanent State of Emergency

State of Emergency

State of Emergency

Trading with the Enemy

October 6, 1917 with the passage of the Trading With the Enemy Act. This act gave the President the power to regulate, during time of war, all financial transactions involving any “individual, partnership, or body of individuals residing within any nation with which the U.S. is at war.”

Declaration of Emergency

On March 9, 1933, five days after Roosevelt’s inauguration and four days after he had declared a national emergency, Congress passed the Emergency Banking Act, which amended the Trading With the Enemy Act to include regulation of transactions not only with the enemy but also between Americans during time of war or national emergency.

Still in Effect

This state of National Emergency has never been lifted by a U.S. President or by Congress …. or has it ever expired.  The U.S. Government has since been acting under this “National Emergency” allowing it the power to do whatever the U.S. Government wants.  Many government officials such as Congressmen and Senators admit this.  However this state is never talked about in public or in the media.

The Law

12 USC section 95(b) states:

‘The actions, regulations, rules, licenses, orders andproclamations heretofore or hereafter taken, promulgated, made, or issued bythe President of the United States or the Secretary of the Treasury since March4, 1933, pursuant to the authority conferred by subsection (b) of section 5 ofthe Act of October 6, 1917 [Trading With the Enemy Act], as amended, are herebyapproved and confirmed.’

The following are excerpts from the Senate Report, 93rd Congress, November 19, 1973, Special Committee On The Termination Of The National Emergency United States Senate.

 Since March 9, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency…. Under the powers delegated by these statutes, the President may: seize property; organize and control the means of production; seize commodities; assign military forces abroad; institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and communication; regulate the operation of private enterprise; restrict travel; and, in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens. A majority of the people of the United States have lived all of their lives under emergency rule. For 40 years, freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the Constitution have, in varying degrees, been abridged by laws brought into force by states of national emergency….from, at least, the Civil War in important ways shaped the present phenomenon of a

      permanent state of national emergency.
