While You were Sleeping: Obama just RE-Declared Martial Law, AGAIN, on May 7, 2013

Yes America, You've Always lived in Not a De Facto, but a De Jure Police State, since 1933 National Emergencies Act was signed by FDR, and every single year since, when it has been renewed annually by every single subsequent Presidents.

Obama, simply following honoring FDR's Martial Law 'Tradition,' today:

Obama Continues America's NEVER Ending State Of Emergency! This Time Because Of SYRIA!

Consider all of this as a respiratory pause, nothing more.

In truth, technically speaking, we've been hijacked in 1913 by NWO banksters, but 'legally' we've been officially a Police State since FDR signed the War Powers Act/National Emergencies Act in 1933, and EVERY SINGLE POTUS since have annually renewed it.

Yup, not much talked about, but not metaphorically, but LITERALLY we've always lived in an official police state/martial law, since 1933. No really, really:

On November 19, 1973, the Special Committee on the Termination of the National Emergency presented Senate Report 93-549 at the first session of the 93rd Congress. The Introduction to the report, an examination of existing War and Emergency Powers Acts, states:

“Since March 9, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency. In fact, there are now in effect four presidentially-proclaimed states of national emergency: In addition to the national emergency declared by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933, there are also the national emergency proclaimed by President Harry S. Truman on December 16, 1950, during the Korean conflict, and the states of national emergency declared by President Richard M. Nixon on March 23, 1970, and August 15, 1971.”[1]

“These proclamations give force to 470 provisions of Federal law. These hundreds of statutes delegate to the President extraordinary powers, ordinarily exercised by the Congress, which affect the lives of American citizens in a host of all-encompassing manners. This vast range of powers, taken together, confer enough authority to rule the country without reference to normal Constitutional processes.”[2]

“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.”[3]

“With the melting of the cold war–the developing detente with the Soviet Union and China, the stable truce of over 20 years duration between North and South Korea, and the end of U.S. involvement in the war in Indochina-there is no present need for the United States Government to continue to function under emergency conditions.”

FDR’s Emergency Act has NEVER been rescinded; recently, as predicted, and practiced by every POTUS since FDR, Barack Hussein oBUSHma just renewed it:

State of National Emergency in effect since November 1979

The United States has been in a state of national emergency continuously for over 30 years, since the Carter administration invoked it premised on the “situation in Iran”. In November 2012, President Barack Obama informed Congress that the State of National Emergency in effect since November 14, 1979 will be extended another year.[1] The National Emergencies Act grants various powers to the president during times of emergency,[2] and was intended to prevent a president from declaring a state of emergency of indefinite duration.[3]

To me, yesterday and today were just another act in the theater of the absurd.

Currency collapse is coming, all the while the biggest explosion in technology boom is coinciding with that mess. Graphene/carbon nanotubes, 3D printing, anyone?

Where will all this lead??

How will we all come out? Who knows?

We're in the midst of an epic, epic history in the making.

But I know one thing: develop your own parallel systems of 'thrival' (thrive+survival) because the Ruling Class already has.

IMHO, there's no 'fixing' anything. Stock up, but leave a bit of room for beauty and creativity will ya? lol.

CRS report number: 95-753
Author(s): David M. Ackerman, American Law Division
Date: August 20, 1996

Abstract

The "War Powers Act of 1933" is a name given by some members of the militia and patriot movement to emergency banking legislation passed in 1933 five days after President Roosevelt came into office. It has apparently been so labeled by some because the banking legislation amended the "Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917" in order to give legal underpinning to President Roosevelt's efforts to cope with the banking crisis. It is alleged by its modern-day critics that by that amendment the government in effect declared war on the American people and began a reign of unconstitutional rule through President emergency powers. These allegations overlook the facts that the amendment of the Trading with the Enemy Act has subsequently been repealed, but the powers exercised pursuant to President Roosevelt's proclamation of national emergency have been terminated, and that the President's exercise of emergency powers is now regulated under the "National Emergencies Act."

Senate Report 94-549: Special Committee on the Termination of the National Emergency, 93rd Congress (1973-1975)

Senate Report 93-549
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Senate Report 93-549 was a document issued by the "Special Committee on the Termination of the National Emergency" of the 93rd Congress (Hence the "93" in the name) (1973 to 1975). Its purpose was to discuss and address the 40 year long state of emergency that had been in effect in the United States since 1933. During the continued state of emergency, Congress voted to transfer powers from Congress to the President. The debate to end long-running states of National Emergency was ended in 1976 with the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601-1651), which limits any such declared emergencies to two years.

Emergency Powers Statutes (Senate Report 93-549)

In this 1973 official report, the U.S. Senate admits that the Emergency Powers given to the President under the pretense of the National Emergency of 1933 have remained in force and that the normal function of the Federal government has been suspended.

UPDATE 2:

While You were Sleeping II: Obama officially RENEWED Martial Law declared by GWB, Post-9/11; Just before Syria PR Speech

Guess what? oBUSHma just renewed the police state, again...'officially' but very quietly; irony of ironies: the 1st MSM source that popped on StartPage, on this issue? MSDNC. Yes, you're under Martial Law, officially. But, y'all knew that already (well, hopefully, most of you were/are):

Obama quietly extends post-9/11 state of national emergency

Ned Resnikoff, @resnikoff

In this long-exposure photo, soldiers with the United States Army’s 3rd Battalion, 41st Infantry Regiment, pull security while other soldiers sleep, during a two-day, joint mission with the Afghan National Civil Order Police, near Command Outpost Siah Choy on March 25, 2013 in Kandahar Province, Zhari District, Afghanistan. (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)

Twelve years after the worst terrorist attack in American history, President Obama yet again extended his predecessor’s Declaration of National Emergency for another year. The declaration, which was originally put into place on September 14, 2001, was renewed on Tuesday.

“The terrorist threat that led to the declaration on September 14, 2001, of a national emergency continues,” wrote President Obama. “For this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue in effect after September 14, 2013, the national emergency with respect to the terrorist threat.”

The powers provided to the executive branch by President George W. Bush’s declaration include the ability to “detain enlisted members of the Coast Guard beyond their terms of enlistment,” “order any enlisted member of the Coast Guard on the retired list to active duty” and “increase the number of members of the armed services on active duty beyond the number for which funds have been appropriated,” according to a report [PDF] by the Congressional Research Service.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

lol

Yep and people wonder why

Yep and people wonder why traitors like McCain and Graham run around claiming the entire US is a battlefield. WE have been in perpetual war since 1933 with who you ask? With the banksters who control the government. The war is against us folks we are the enemy of these bastards! They have just made it more subtle until now where they are becoming more and more blatant.

God forbid we wake up and fight back like we should when a foreign entity makes war on us...

Time is nigh & so "blatant" they have 2B as their plans entropy;

kinda puts the whole Kokesh's 'armed march on DC'-thing, a wee bit more ominous, eh?

"God forbid we wake up and fight back like we should when a foreign entity makes war on us..."

indeed, foreign coporatist entities have LONG hijacked America, and we are living under a de jure occupied territory.

So...WHEN...is the 'right' time??

In principle, too support Kokesh's March, but not necessarily the action itself or the timing, not to mention the Mordor on the Potomac that is the District of Criminals's statist actors predictable tyrannical response is the real issue; those loons would do everything to sabotage it, somehow.

So, AK's 'armed march' if it could ever be characterized, perhaps can be called: "Right Time, WRONG Timing."

But unless there was a way to ensure ZERO false flagging or entrapment by statist actors, it's such a predictably loaded event...

I hope to God, it goes as PEACEFUL as possible.

I truly wish we had visibly enough critical mass of Americans who'd altogether, all at once, simply not comply and 'lovingly' tell off the statist frakkers: "No Thank You. We don't feel like complying with your idiocy, today, or anymore."

Then, like 'magic' it could all be stopped: sick paradox, how simple, yet how ridiculously difficult it is...to simply wait on about 100 Million Americans going "Hundredth Monkey Syndrome"???

C'est la vie. It seems this is the epoch that the creator/cosmos dealt us.

LOL.

You wanna know the sickest part?

While in my most loftiest of optimistic wishful thinking, I hope (that silly and beautiful human sentiment) that we already have over 30% of a critical mass of awakened citizenry. Then again, I see a small sample of our supposedly 'educated' youth, the likes of which Dice has been 'Jaywalking'... I wonder, I mean I truly wonder, even IF 30 MILLION Americans all knew about the 1933 National Emergencies Act, whether they'd be compelled to do something, even if it is quiet non-compliance, to a wholly different way of looking at the world, along with forever dismissing the 'brand' govt as the assaulters, kidnappers, pedophiles, rapists, torturers, and murderers that they are, and have always been.

But alas, a tiny tiny sample of Commufornia it may be, but still, observing Watertown, MA's response to police state rollout, it's hard not to imagine the worst about the mass Idiocracy afoot, in America:

I seriously doubt Adams march

I seriously doubt Adams march will happen at least not armed. I suspect it is just Adam gauging where people are at. While I agree with the sentiment I cannot see it accomplishing anything unless it is was million strong with firm resolve, and it provides a host of potential scenarios gone bad. They will not let people just walk in to DC armed their will be a show of force to stop it if it actually happens.

While it may be time their is still not enough sentiment for it to be successful and as has been mentioned it would be ripe for government provocateurs.

Adam's on AJ show live, now,

and he seems to be doubling down.

the DC police chief responded; Adam's citing all the felonies he may be facing, if and when he literally crosses the bridge into DC via an armed march.

the classic authoritarian impulse is exposed in the female DC police chief's response: they'll do "civil disobedience OUR way."

but he's also calling on those who want to attend unarmed, spectators, indy film crew and citizen journalists.

cautious, but Adam's on.

prayers to all, madness to none but the Ruling Class & their sycophants.
