The People Are The Enemy

Let's see if the Congress can stop Bush in the middle east.

The People Are The Enemy

Subject: Domestic Policy

Rick Stanley:

"Since March the 9th, 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... control the lives of all American citizens"

RE: "This situation has continued absolutely uninterrupted since March 9, 1933. We have been in a state of declared national emergency for nearly 63 years without knowing it."---

What proof is there that "This situation has continued absolutely uninterrupted..."? Please don't tell me that I have to research every single Statute, Executive Order, etc. since Roosevelt to locate the Act or Order which ended this "emergency".

Just saying something is so does not necessarily make it so. I see nothing in the article to make me conclude that such actions have "continued absolutely uninterrupted". I'm willing to look at evidence that so states, but I don't see any yet. My mind is open on the subject, but you have to show me on what your conclusion is based.

Here is 12 USC 95(b)---

"(b)(1) In the event of natural calamity, riot, insurrection, war,

or other emergency conditions occurring in any State whether caused

by acts of nature or of man, the Comptroller of the Currency may

designate by proclamation any day a legal holiday for the national

banking associations located in that State. In the event that the

emergency conditions affect only part of a State, the Comptroller

of the Currency may designate the part so affected and may proclaim

a legal holiday for the national banking associations located in

that affected part. In the event that a State or a State official

authorized by law designates any day as a legal holiday for

ceremonial or emergency reasons, for the State or any part thereof,

that same day shall be a legal holiday for all national banking

associations or their offices located in that State or the part so

affected. A national banking association or its affected offices

may close or remain open on such a State-designated holiday unless

the Comptroller of the Currency by written order directs otherwise.

(2) For the purpose of this subsection, the term "State" means

any of the several States, the District of Columbia, the

Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam,

the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, the Trust Territory of the

Pacific Islands, or any other territory or possession of the United


I see nothing there to support your contention that the 1933 banking "emergency" is still in effect.
