[6 months ago] (BHO's Msg re Continuation) National Emergency w/r/t Certain Terrorist Attacks
The White House ^ | September 9, 2011 | Office of the Press Secretary

Posted on 03/17/2012 4:55:16 PM PDT by NECAWA

"The terrorist threat that led to the declaration on September 14, 2001, of a national emergency continues. For this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue in effect after September 14, 2011, the national emergency with respect to the terrorist threat. Barack Obama"

TOPICS: Government
KEYWORDS: emergency; obama
As I understand it,we are already (still) in a state of national emergency. On 9/9/2011 President Obama once again extended President Bush's original 2001 declaration through September 23rd, 2012. If that's correct, the content and timing of his new executive order on National Defense Resources Preparedness is cause for even more urgent concern. Is he already empowered to implement these provisions? Does anyone know whether congress now has any power to restrict his exercise of the state of emergency provisions?

"...the national emergency with respect to the terrorist threat. Barack Obama"

They should proofread these things more carefully. Obviously, someone typed a period where there should be a colon.

So, here we are, with a "State of Emergency" existing at least until September 11th, 2012, and a new Executive Order on National Preparedness going into effect yesterday...

What could go wrong?

First the new EO does not require an emergency.

Does anyone else read this as a setup to suspend elections if things aren’t looking good for Obie in the polls?

The emergency will be that he’s losing, or has lost the election. All a matter if timing.

Why now?

Why the EO and now this at this time? Friday, yep. March madness, yep. Is that all?

It seems like there’s a piece missing somewhere.

Folks, the country has been in a constant state of Emergency, through executive fiat, since 1933.

We’re still under a national emergency from the flu scare 2 yrs ago. It was never rescinded.

“We are at war with Oceania”

Exactly. 1984 hit the nail on the head perfectly and it isn’t liberal or conservative, it is a combination of both.
