Exclamation Bush Extends 9/11 National Emergency Yet Again

From Global Research
by Peter Dale Scott
September 4 2008

Though few Americans realize it, Cheney and Rumsfeld worked through the 1980s and 1990s on emergency nuclear-response plans which allegedly suspended the American constitution and also Congress.[1] (Through these decades Rumsfeld was CEO of a major pharmaceutical firm, and in the later 1990s Cheney was CEO of Halliburton; but their private status did not deter them from continuing to exercise a supra-constitutional planning power conferred on them by Ronald Reagan.)

Even fewer Americans know that these rules, originally dealing with a nuclear attack on America, were extended by Reagan Executive Order 12656 to cover “any occurrence, including natural disaster, military attack, technological emergency, or other emergency, that seriously degrades or seriously threatens the national security of the United States.”[2] And few Americans realize that at least some of these rules, known technically as Continuity of Government or COG rules, were invoked before 10:00 AM on September 11, 2001.[3]

As he did in 2007, President Bush has again, on August 28, 2008, continued for another year the national emergency first officially proclaimed on September 14, 2001, along with “the powers and authorities adopted to deal with that emergency:”

Notice: Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to Certain Terrorist Attacks

Consistent with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency I declared on September 14, 2001, in Proclamation 7463, with respect to the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center, New York, New York, the Pentagon, and aboard United Airlines flight 93, and the continuing and immediate threat of further attacks on the United States.

Because the terrorist threat continues, the national emergency declared on September 14, 2001, and the powers and authorities adopted to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond September 14, 2008. Therefore, I am continuing in effect for an additional year the national emergency I declared on September 14, 2001, with respect to the terrorist threat.

This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.

GEORGE W. BUSH

THE WHITE HOUSE,

August 28, 2008.[4]

Once again appropriate personnel in Congress should learn and review what those “powers and authorities” are, since almost certainly they include COG (Continuity of Government) rules. In 2007 National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD 51), issued by the White House, also extended for one year the emergency proclaimed in 2001; and it empowered the President to personally ensure "continuity of government."[5]

NSPD 51 also contained "classified Continuity Annexes" to "be protected from unauthorized disclosure." Congressman DeFazio twice requested to see these Annexes, the second time in a letter cosigned by House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson and Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Christopher Carney. The White House denied these requests, claiming that the congressmen lacked the requisite clearances. But as I wrote earlier this year,

"Congress has a right to be concerned about Continuity of Government (COG) plans refined by Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld over the past quarter century….The story, ignored by the mainstream press, involved more than the usual tussle between the legislative and executive branches of the U.S. Government. What was at stake was a contest between Congress's constitutional powers of oversight, and a set of policy plans that could be used to suspend or modify the constitution."[6]

Oliver North, who worked on COG planning with Rumsfeld and Cheney in the 1980s, was asked in the Iran-Contra Hearings about his work on an emergency plan “that would suspend the American constitution.” Democratic Senator Inouye, who was presiding, pounded his gavel and interjected that this was a “highly sensitive and classified matter,” not to be dealt with in an open hearing.[7] Congress has never discussed COG plans publicly since that time.

According to Wikipedia, “The National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601-1651) is a United States federal law passed in 1976 to stop open-ended states of national emergency and formalize Congressional checks and balances on Presidential emergency powers. The act sets a limit of two years on states of national emergency. It also imposes certain "procedural formalities" on the President when invoking such powers, and provides a means for Congress to countermand a Presidential declaration of emergency and associated use of emergency powers (emphasis added).

Bush’s denial of the Homeland Security’s right to review the COG plans in the classified Appendices of NSPD-51 should have been seen as a constitutional crisis -- a line in the sand for Congress to assert its constitutional rights and duties. Now, one year later, I understand (although I cannot corroborate it from the Internet) that Congressman Kucinich has introduced or will introduce a bill for Congress, under the terms of the National Emergencies Act, to countermand the presidentially proclaimed national emergency. This is an important move, but it should not obviate the need for Congress to review rules which allegedly restrict its own powers under the constitution.

Between now and November the American electorate have an opportunity to present this demand to everyone running for office: that they will insist on vigorous congressional action to expose and dispose of these secret COG rules -- rules that allegedly suspend the American constitution.

Possible:

- Declaration of Nat. State of Emerg. shortly.
- Possibly No Nov election (delayed election).
- Bluebeam op. (Know how to block it - Know how to recognize it !)
- China - US mfg conflict still on the agenda for 2008 (already begun)


sidenote: Russ EMP wpn is nothing new... whereas spacebased similar systems pose problems for civilizations dependent on high-tech.


BUT: live life and be aware. Be happy and fear Not.
Nothing will hurt you if you make basic prudent preparations - Especially mental preparations (learn how to relax).

Moving to the West coast of South or Central America is Not a good idea.

Nuclear war is unlikely.

Water, food and high spirits are always good to have!
Always good to have a month's supply of fiat money on-hand.
and some toilet paper :-)

It will be over soon. Enjoy the "ride" if one even takes place.

Hi Henry,

Your posts always give me a great deal of pause. I read them carefully. There has been a good bit of talk, beginning with George Green, about Ecuador and other western coastal areas of South America. Some are already in the planning stages of a move in that direction. Is it possible that you could be more specific as to what is considered safe and what isn't? Is there a particular elevation or number of miles inland in those areas that would qualify as safe or any other metric that should be considered based on the potential threat(s)?

I'm aware that you have to be cautious with the information you provide, so I'll take what I can get. A riddle would even do

Thank you for your response, Henry. Although this threat of Martial Law really worries me. I live in a very populated area. I certainly don't want anyone banging on my door.

I would like to go to the safe part of the Southern Hemisphere soon, but I worry that it may not be soon enough.

I'm aware of the Bluebeam op. It seems so crazy that I couldn't see them trying to pull that off, but I do know they are capable of anything. I have an idea how to recongnize it but I'm not quite sure how to block it. I certainly have much more to learn and I hope I'm not too late.

I do hope that their plans are at least postponed somehow.

Hi, Henry -

This jumped off the page at me and I don't recall having had this conversation.

Can you say more??

Indeed, I second Bill's question. Is it not enough to simply be aware of the trickery? Do we need to be out of range, in the basement? How do we protect ourselves?

Henry, I wonder if you could elaborate on this comment a bit?

I'm moving to central Mexico soon. I personally feel it's safer than most states in the U.S right now.. In any case it's as far as I can get with limited resources.

Great to have you part of the forum. Thank you for risking your life for the homies.

Hi Henry,

yes, could you pls elaborate? If there is an issue for this area is there also a problem for it's opposite ie the east coasts of Australia and NZ?

Any forewarning would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
