The President now has the power, under secret arrangements already established, to seize total dictatorial control. Can he hold such power and not use it? If he has no intention of asserting this secret power, why did the White House go to the trouble of setting it up?
Unknown to virtually all Americans except for the tiny handful who make up his administration’s inner circle. Jimmy Carter promulgated a secret program to suspend the Constitution and to clamp executive dictatorship on the nation whenever, in his judgment, conditions warrant the declaration of “national emergency.”
A young policy analyst who helped draft the original directives have described the new program as a White House stratagem to replace the American Constitutional structure with a so-called “command system” in which you will be subject to total bureaucratic control.
The years since the inauguration of Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933 have been a history of relentless bureaucratic encroachment on the rights of American citizens, the sources acknowledge.
Yet these people, who are familiar with Carter’s design, described the new plan as,
“the most dangerous internal attack on our system since independence.”
It is a,
“quiet coup d’etat that will end up making the Soviet Union look mild and permissive by comparison,” they said.
A major White House directive, known as Presidential Review Memorandum 32 (PRM 32), inaugurated the new order last year as a “national administrative reorganization project” allegedly designed to help the country deal more effectively with disasters and mass emergencies. In a sharp break with tradition, PRM 32 has been hidden from the public under a high level of security classification.
It has never been published in full, even in the “Federal Register.”
Since the Roosevelt era, “executive orders” (EOs) presidential decrees which acquire the force of law have been utilized by the mushrooming bureaucracy to extend its control. The most pervasive and therefore potentially the most damaging executive order prior to 1977 was promulgated by President Richard M. Nixon on October 28, 1969.
Known as EO 11490, the so-called “omnibus” emergency preparedness decree, it incorporated 23 earlier EOs into a so-called “umbrella ukase” granting the national bureaucracy wide powers, in civil or military “crisis conditions,” to literally seize the entire country and every man, woman and child in it.
The following Executive Orders are some of the consolidated orders into EO 11490:
Executive Order 10995 provides for the takeover of the communications media.
Executive Order 10997 provides for the takeover of all electric, power, petroleum, gas, fuels and minerals this includes well water.
Executive Order 10988 provides for the takeover of food resources and farms.
Executive Order 10999 provides for the takeover of all modes of transportation, control of highways, seaports, etc.
Executive Order 11000 provides for mobilization of all civilians into work brigades under the Government supervision.
Executive Order 11001 Provides for Governmental takeover of all health, education and welfare functions.
Executive Order 11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.
Executive Order 11003 provides for the Government to lake over airports and aircraft.
Executive Order 11004 provides for the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
Executive Order 11005 provides for the Government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.
As the Liberty Lobby noted first in a 1965 pamphlet now seen as a classic prophecy:
“More frightening than all its contents if the omission of a definition of the phrase ‘national emergency.’ The decision as to what constitutes a ‘national emergency’ is left to the capricious whim of just one man: the president, whoever he might be.”
This feature has always been the most menacing aspect of government by bureaucratic order disguised as “emergency management.”
But past administrations have found it politically hazardous to invoke crisis conditions without being confronted by some sort of threat of disaster genuine or staged which alarmed large numbers of citizens.
“Any president can be sure of wielding political control only over his own appointees.”
“Since in the past the execution of EOs was the responsibility of long established departments and agencies the Department of Justice, for Instance, or the Federal Bank Supervisory Agencies there were some built in limitations on just how far this presidential power grab could reach.”
With the advent of the Carter era, all this began to change.
The National Security Council in the executive branch was handed over to trusted academic henchmen of the Rockefeller dynasty, to “pragmatic professors” such as Zbigniew Brzezinski and Professor Samuel Huntington, who view the U.S. as a “techinetronic society” in which the Constitution and its safeguards are no longer “relevant.”
Huntington, known as the author of a major Trilateral position paper arguing that jet-age America needed a “centralized,” bureaucratic government, was put in charge of drawing up the framework for it.
Appointed to the senior staff of the National Security Council soon after Carter’s election, Huntington came up with a study suggesting that the most effective road to a fully bureaucratized and “systems-managed” U.S. lay through a “total” approach to federal emergency management.
Critics have dubbed him Samuel “Mad Dog” Huntington for his zeal in promoting bureaucratic totalitarianism. But the Trilateral professor is man of dangerous brilliance.
He saw that crisis management could be used to replace the Constitutional system if two main “flaws” were removed its dependence: on the traditional civil service for enforcement: and on some sort of visible, alarming disaster or dislocation for justification.
Secret Crisis Invented
Threats or catastrophes justifying the imposition of a state of national emergency by the president could be staged or arranged: the origins of World War II were a historic reminder of that.
But staging a upheaval which would appear credible to most citizens takes money, energy and time. Why not devise a “classified emergency” a secret crisis, as it were, which existed solely on the say-so of the president?
Huntington knew that he had the makings of just such an invisible emergency in the space age menace of nuclear terrorism. On November 4, 1975, the chairman of the board of giant Union Oil Co.,Fred Hartley, received and anonymous letter in his Los Angeles office threatening the detonation of a nuclear device unless Union Oil paid $1 million in ransom-small bills in two suitcases.
FBI experts flown in from Washington judged the letter to be a “credible” threat that is, written by someone who may have actually assembled a “kitchen table” nuclear device. Six days later agents arrested Frank James, a 63 year old car salesman, and nothing like a bomb or its makings was found. James was charged only with a “threat to destroy property,” not with the far more serious crime of blackmail.
Although James was convicted in October, 1976 and sent to prison for about six months, the evidence in the case remained murky. James maintains to this day that he was innocent and the victim of a “federal set-up.”
Huntington concluded, was the ideal situation; a “national emergency” which could be triggered by a single nuclear blackmail note-a letter which could originate with a genuine terrorist or on a White House typewriter with equal facility enabling the president to assume command of the country.
To maximize the impact of such and event, as the official jargon has it, Huntington proposed the formation of a separate bureaucracy to deal with various aspects of the crisis.
From these suggestions there emerged, in the spring of 1979, a new staff organization called Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA.
As befits a brand new bureaucracy destined to manage the nation’s affairs. FEMA capitalized on the already existing 10 Regional Government Councils which were established during the administrations of Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon and set up a district office in each of them.
In Washington, its authority grew as on presidential orders it assumed control of a chain of older agencies:
the Federal Disaster Assistance Administration
the Federal Insurance Administration
the National Weather Service
the Federal Emergency Broadcast System
and a dozen others…
In the Justice Department, for instance, the senior FEMA officer will take charge and direct the imposition of,
“those restraints that the exigencies of a dire peacetime nuclear emergency might necessitate with respect to the free exercise of Constitutional and other basic rights and liberties.”
The FEMA agents directing the machinery of the Department of Justice will also assist the FEMA officers who have taken charge of the Department of Health and Human Services in setting up “mental health centers’ where citizens considered deranged or overly upset may be confined at the pleasure of the president by administrative order.
FEMA controllers working with the Department of Agriculture staff will issue commands concerning the decontamination, safekeeping and distribution of food supplies. In the treasury, they will impose a moratorium on banks and administer the printing of money during the “emergency.”
What is foreseen is a system of government most closely resembling a state of martial law, but that is nothing new; what they are not telling you and the reason the government can write secret laws to enslave you and then not tell you that they are on the books, is because the martial law from the Civil War time when it was put into place then has never been rescinded.
Our civil liberties have simply been swept away one by one.
They have been boiling the frog (you) slowly for a very long time and they are just about ready to put the lid on the pot. The executive bureaucracy will have absolute power, and the duration of their rule will be determined wholly by the president’s personal view of the “emergency”.
American people the time to wake up is today; you have been screwed by your government and the men that you vote to put in power to do the right things for you and your country and as long as they can keep you pacified and ignorant they will put the people of America into a “technotronic” dictatorship, and take all of you rights and liberties away from you and put you into total slavery if you don’t wake up and take the power back that you have for to long given away to people that don’t care for your well being, but only theirs.
Carter ordered into being an entire apparatus unprecedented in American history designed to seize and exercise all political, economic and military power in the United Slates, establishing the president as total dictator.
He did this with and executive order.
History of Executive Orders
Under the Constitution of the United States, the president is vested with the executive power of the government (Article II, Section 1, Clause 1), the power to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution” (Article II, Section 1, Clause 7), and the power to see that the laws are faithfully executed (Article II Section 3).
From these powers is implied the authority to issue “executive orders.”
An “executive order” has never been defined by Congress
The validity of executive orders has been questioned many times, but a ruling as to the extent or limit to which they may be used has never been determined by the courts or by Congress (Library of CONGRESS, Legislative Research Service #398/117-9)
The “Federal Register” contains the text of directives issued under the authority of the president. No congressional authorization is required. There is no review by the judiciary.
All executive orders (EOs) are laws made by one man-the president of the United States.
Through existing EOs, it is possible for one man to ignore the Constitution, Congress and the will of the people. A complete dictatorship can be imposed, under the veil of law, on the American people. During the Nixon presidency, an attempt was made to incorporate all of the “national emergency” powers of the presidency into an omnibus order which would cover most or ail of the situations requiring the use of the power.
This became known as Executive Order 11490.
Under the terms of EO 11490, the president of the United States could order that a national emergency exists.
In this list please, notice how many of these relate directly to the vast connections it has back to the December 15, 1865 covenant that was put into place with the formation of the United States Military Railroad for transportation and communication and public services, to be put into operations for the president and military to be seized in the time of national emergency or war, and was to remain in operation forever for the president.
Folks, this has been on the planning board for a very long time.
Taking over all communications media
Seize all sources of power (electric, nuclear, petroleum etc.)
Control all food resources
Seize all forms of transportation
Control all highways and seaports
Seize railroads, inland waterways and storage facilities
Commandeer all civilians to work under federal supervision
Control all activities relating to health, education and welfare
Register every man. woman and child in the U.S.
Shift any segment of the population from one location to another
Control all devices capable of emitting electro-magnetic radiation
Take over farms, ranches, or timberland properties so as to protect, manage, and utilize them effectively
Freeze all wages and prices
Demand emergency welfare services, (food, clothing, and lodging) in private homes, for those in need
Regulate the amount of your own money you can withdraw from your bank or savings and loan institution
Close the stock exchanges and freeze stock and bond prices
Institute EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES with respect to any facility, system, or service essential to national survival
All of these items listed, plus many others clearly enumerated on 32 pages incorporating nearly 200,000 words, pertain to every previous executive order ever issued unless specifically revoked.
When Carter look office, EO 11490 was incorporated into a new plan ordered into existence by Presidential Review Memorandum 32.
This gave the mantle of law to another executive order #12148, titled Federal Emergency Management. All prior EOs having anything to do with emergency planning have been incorporated into it. The order gives the president absolute power during any “emergency” so declared by him, to be kept by him until specifically revoked by action of the legislature.
Go to your local law library and look up in its entirety the Federal Emergency Management under Executive Orders 12148 dated July 20,1979.
