    Default Who's in charge of the USA - Trump or FEMA?

    If Trump declares a state of emergency, does FEMA step in...? What are the mid and long term implications of this...? Video at bottom.

    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 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.

    * 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. 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, which 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;

    o the 1950 Defense Production Act, which gives the President sweeping powers over all aspects of the economy;

    o the Act of August 29, 1916, which authorizes the Secretary of the Army, in time of war, to take possession of any transportation system for transporting troops, material, or any other purpose related to the emergency; and

    o the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which 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.

    what do you mean if?

    Quote NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including sections 201 and 301 of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) and consistent with section 1135 of the Social Security Act (SSA), as amended (42 U.S.C. 1320b-5), do hereby find and proclaim that the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States constitutes a national emergency, beginning March 1, 2020. Pursuant to this declaration, I direct as follows:

    Section 1. Emergency Authority. The Secretary of HHS may exercise the authority under section 1135 of the SSA to temporarily waive or modify certain requirements of the Medicare, Medicaid, and State Children’s Health Insurance programs and of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Privacy Rule throughout the duration of the public health emergency declared in response to the COVID‑19 outbreak.

    Sec. 2. Certification and Notice. In exercising this authority, the Secretary of HHS shall provide certification and advance written notice to the Congress as required by section 1135(d) of the SSA (42 U.S.C. 1320b-5(d)).

    Sec. 3. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this proclamation shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

    (i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

    (ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

    (b) This proclamation shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

    (c) This proclamation is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
    Hard times create strong men, Strong men create good times, Good times create weak men, Weak men create hard times.
    Where are you?

    Each order is unique in how it assigns authority.

    They are much more precise than "allows the government to do something".

    Currently all states of emergency expire in a year unless renewed. So for example each year we usually find them renewing something that came out of 9/11.

    As for who is "in charge", if it comes to something like a split decision in the Supreme Court, then, effectively, one judge determines the fate of the whole subject.

    One of the main uses of FEMA is a cash cow, for instance, they gave us a furnace, and then called us back in a few months and gave us a roof. Oodles of projects at ridiculous prices go through it, but, at least, it gets paid to civilian workers this way.

    I see instant death for Trump, like a massive heart attack or stroke, around the age of 74. I knew he would win the last election, because I saw him looking Presidential in the future, and Hillary looking isolated and depressed.

    I get that some people living underground are calling the shots for the U.S, like in Idaho, or Iowa, something with the letter I.
