FEMA – DICTATORSHIP POSSIBLE???
This article sourced from: http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/esp_sociopol_un10b.htm
Hidden in the bureaucratic maze Washington politicians call “our Constitutional system of government”, a little-known federal agency is quietly making plans to turn the United States into a dictatorship.
There are “stacks of blueprints” in the top-secret safe of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) designed to convert American society into a “command system”, a former deputy administrator of the agency has told …the investigative team.
In a private interview, allowing him to remain anonymous, this highly placed source confirmed that the procedures developed by FEMA to “suspend” the Constitution and to round up thousands of dissenters nationwide can be activated by a single phone call from the White House.
“Even people who have become aware of FEMA’s existence and know something about its activities-not many do-think the word “Emergency” in its designation means it will go into action only in case of a natural disaster or perhaps a surprise nuclear attack“, related this expert.
“In reality, however, this outfit can be mobilized whenever the politicians occupying the White House decide they need special-and extra-Constitutional-powers to impose their will on the nation.”
…FEMA’s bureaucrats can then proceed to:
Take over all farms, ranches or timberland in order to utilize them more effectively as decreed in Executive Order (EO) 11490, the so-called omnibus emergency preparedness decree promulgated by President Richard Nixon on October 28, 1969.
Seize all sources of public power: electric, nuclear, petroleum, etc.
Freeze all wages, prices and bank accounts.
Take over all communications media.
Such totalitarian measures can be imposed by bureaucrats under FEMA’s direction, not just in the face of a cataclysmic upheaval, but “whenever necessary for assuring the continuity of the federal government in any national emergency type situation”, decreed a subsequent White House ukase, EO 11921, issued by President Gerald Ford in April 1976.
Can such a blueprint for tyranny be clamped on the United States by a force of faceless federal officials? It is the role of FEMA (prepared) for most intensively, says the former high agency administrator.
“In recent years, despite talk of spending cuts, FEMA’s budget has been steadily increasing,” revealed this knowledgeable source. “It now stands at somewhere around $3 billion annually. I say ‘somewhere’ because part of this agency’s funding is appropriated under so-called black programs, submitted to Congress with the defense budget without an explanation of its purpose, asking the secret CIA appropriation.”
The Plot Against Private Property!!
In the February 2 Issue of his newsletter, Remnant Review, GARY NORTH makes the provocative suggestion that our Constitutional Convention of 1787 was a manipulative maneuver of the Elitist Syndicate plotting world control via a central banking conspiracy. This is too long and too meaty an article for THE OSTRICH to offer more than a few nibbles.
The American Convention consolidated the 13 original states, sovereign under the Articles of Confederation, into a giant free trade zone. North speculates that the Constitution was a peaceful thesis to the violent antithesis of the French Revolution of the same period—”a Hegelian dialectic even before Hegel was born.” Both aimed at the same goal on the same timetable: completion by 2000. That goal was world political totalitarianism under a money monopoly.
North dates organization of the plotters from SIR ISAAC NEWTON‘S “capture” of England’s Royal Society, chartered in 1661, and the founding of the monopolistic Bank of England in the same period. He attributes success to conspirators’ sources in occultism (secret societies) and journalism. For more than three centuries, London has been the brain and control center of the conspiracy. The Bank of England is the model for a world-controlling money monopoly. North suggests that the United States is the model for its political aspect, the peaceful thesis for the violent antithesis (USSR) which has failed.
Given worldwide aspirations inspired by the idealism launching the American Experiment, this was a brilliant propaganda choice and is thus being sold for a United Europe, first step in the Syndicate’s One World. As in the United States, K was first peddled as a free trade union. Gradually, as THE OSTRICH has been reporting, the original sovereignty of our confederated states has been devoured with bribes, blackmail, and such outright theft as the Nixon Administration regionalism shown in the map below. A similar fate is predictable for European nations under the Syndicate’s consolidation planned for 1992.
Unless a re-united neutral Germany breaks from the conspiracy…. Unless Americans awake and their own non-violent “velvet” revolution outlaw fractional reserve and usury banking….
REGIONAL GOVERNMENT STRUCTURE
White House Directive, “Restructuring of Government Service Systems”, dated 27 March 1969 merged the fifty sovereign states into ten federal regions in violation of the prohibitions of Article IV, United States Constitution.
An examination of the type of government established under regional governance shows that it is a government of appointed rather than elected officials, a governance established in violation of the guarantees of Article X, United States Constitution. Under regional governance US citizens are to be held in bondage, in perpetuity, as producers and servers for a self-appointed Oligarchy.
Interlocking subversion in government departments can, of course, be successfully challenged by an informed electorate motivated to act. within the authority of the U.S. Constitution. (38)
FEMA can draw on the defense budget and on the protection of the secrecy reserved for national security projects because it came into being under President Jimmy Carter in a move that merged the civil defense and disaster relief responsibilities formerly shared by the Pentagon, the Commerce Department and the General Services Administration under a single powerful agency.
But FEMA’s real focus is not on disaster relief, knowledgeable sources say. An investigation of this little-known agency, conducted earlier this year (1992) by the General Accounting Office (GAO), the congressional watchdog unit, has found that less than 10 percent of FEMA’s staff – 230 bureaucrats out of an estimated 2,600 – are assigned full time to preparing for and dealing with major natural calamities such as storms or earthquakes.
What, then, is FEMA really up to? …an advance copy of the GAO report on this secretive agency… The study’s surprising findings have been reviewed with the help of well-placed confidential sources in order to bring into full view, for the first time, the federal bureaucracy’s secret blueprint for tyranny in America.

THE FEDERAL BUREAUCRACY’S SECRET BLUEPRINT
FOR TYRANNY IN AMERICA
President Eisenhower’s warning about the “Military Industrial Complex” should hit home. The term “Military Security” has become a shield behind which the American people are being systematically drained and defraud… Unlimited spending for weapons programs has become the means by which contractors have virtually unobstructed access to public funds. When you have contractors being reimbursed for expenses without documentation you have a license to steal.
Evidence that we are becoming a “Military Welfare State” is found in Public Law 85-804, which holds that contractors who are “deemed essential” to national defense must be protected against bankruptcy. This legislative legerdemain means that American citizens (taxpayers) are REQUIRED to underwrite
Incompetence, Waste, and even Fraud.
The Pentagon has been given the power to subsidize suppliers who have broken their contractual obligations. National security has become the facade behind which the National Treasury is being brazenly raided… (18)
FIGURE OUT WHAT MJTF POLICE, BATF, FINCEN and FEMA HAVE DRAWN INTO MESSING UP WITH THE EXECUTIVE ORDERS!!!
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 I, clause I), the power to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution” (Article II, Section I, 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” (EOs).
AN “EXECUTIVE ORDER” HAS NEVER BEEN DEFINED BY CONGRESS
In use from the earliest days of the republic, the executive order was at first employed mainly for the disposition of the public domain, the withdrawal of lands from federal reservations and for other similar purposes.
During World War I the use of the executive order was widened, as executive authority and power increased.
In the early years executive orders were not numbered, and since there was no uniform system for recording them the total of the unnumbered orders is unknown.
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 No.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 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 color of law,” on the American people.
On March 9, 1933 President Franklin Roosevelt declared a state of “National Emergency” to deal with the banking crisis. Later, he declared two other national emergencies as he led the United States into World War II.
Another state of emergency was declared by President Harry Truman in 1950 after Red China’s intervention in the Korean War. Truman formally ended both the World War II emergencies in April of 1952, but expressly reaffirmed the 1950 declaration.
Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon also reaffirmed it as each took office. Nixon declared other national emergencies on March 23, 1970 and August 15, 1971.
A declaration by the president indicating a national emergency exists has always stopped short of Martial Law, although the president has that prerogative. Undoubtedly it would be exercised in the event of a major or nuclear attack on the United States.
The last use of Martial Law was in Hawaii a few hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.
It is interesting to note that the tendency of martial law to perpetuate itself was demonstrated in that case. The military retained basic control of Hawaii until the Supreme Court in 1944 ruled that the continued use of martial law, long after the disaster conditions had ended, was un-Constitutional. (19)
THE FRIGHTENING SIGHT OF DICTATORIAL POWERS
It is a frightening thought, but there are Executive Orders (EOs) on the books that made it possible for a president to ignore the Constitution and its cherished Bill of Rights, Congress, the judiciary and the very will of the American people.
It is a fact that a complete dictatorship can be imposed upon the people at nay time, simply by the president declaring a national emergency.
During the 1950s and 1960s, it was believed that the best way to bring about one-world government was by disarming the United States. Those who feared for America’s Constitutionally guaranteed liberties, and rightfully so, warned that America would be disarmed and would become easy prey for the ever-expanding military power of the Soviet Union and Red China.
They particularly opposed the powers of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, established to disarm America.
Now, however, with Eastern Europe shaking itself free from the shackles of communism and those peoples exercising their nationalistic yearnings, disarmament by both sides has become a necessity to cure social ills plaguing the U.S. and former Soviet bloc countries. With the apparent failure of the Red military machine, the general movement has been toward as easing of the arms race.
From the newfound “friendship” with Eastern Europe and in particular from the so-called multinational effort against Iraq in the Persian Gulf, President George Bush rarely gives a speech or holds a press conference in which he fails to mention his thoughts about a “New World Order.”
Now, however, a new method is needed to nullify America’s treasured Constitution, and the insidious EOs have gained a new and even more dangerous part to play in the plotting of the one worlders of the Trilateralist–Bilderberger ilk.
The biggest danger of such schemes as those proposed by Rep. Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) and Sen. Phil Gramm (R-Texas) is that any declared “national emergencies” would allow the president to activate repressive EOs signed by presidents going back to World War II.
Here are some of the EOs involved:
EO 10995, which provides for the takeover of the communications media. In other words, forget about freedom of the press.
EO 10997, which provides for the takeover of all electric power, petroleum, gas and other fuels and minerals.
EO 10998, which provides for the takeover of all food resources and the nation’s farms.
EO 10999, which provides for the takeover of all modes of transportation, control of highways, seaports, etc.
EO 11000, which provides for mobilization of all civilians into work brigades under government supervision. In other words, slave labor.
EO 11001, which provides for government takeover of all health, education and welfare functions.
EO 11002, designates the postmaster general to operate a national registration of all persons.
EO 11003, which provides for the government to take over airports and aircraft.
EO 11004, which provides for the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, designate areas to be abandoned and establish new locations for populations.
EO 11005 which provides for the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.
All of the above orders were combined by President Richard Nixon into the notorious EO 11490… which allows all of these insidious things to take place if a national emergency is declared.
Here are some direct quotes from the 40-page Nixon EO:
“Develop plans and procedures for the Department of Defense utilization of non-industrial facilities in the event of an emergency in order to reduce requirements for new construction and to provide facilities in a minimum period of time…”
In other words, The confiscation of private property.
“Develop plans and procedures for the provision of logistical support to members of foreign forces, their employees and dependents as may be present in the United States under terms of bilateral or multilateral agreements which authorize such support in the event of a national
In other words, prepare for the billeting of foreign troops in your home contrary to the Third Amendment.
“Develop emergency plans for the control for alien enemies and other aliens within the United States. The lo0cation, restraint or custody of aliens.”
“The Secretary of Labor shall have primary responsibility for preparing national emergency plans and developing preparedness programs covering civilian manpower resources.”
Preparation can be undertaken for forced labor.
“Provision for regulation of money and credit in accordance with the needs of the economy, including the acquisition decentralization and distribution of emergency supplies of currency; the collection of cash items and non-cash items; and the conduct of fiscal agency and foreign operations.
“Provision for the continued or resumed operation of banking, savings and loan, and farm credit institutions, including measures for the recreation of evidence of assets or liabilities destroyed or inaccessible.
“Regulation of the withdrawal of currency and the transfer of credits including deposit and share account balances.”
Then along come President Jimmy Carter and EO 12148, titled the Federal Emergency Management Act. All prior EOs having anything to do with emergency planning were incorporated into it. This EO gives the president absolute power during any “emergency” so declared by him.
From Carter’s machinations emerged a totally new bureaucracy, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) which assumed control of a chain of older “emergency agencies”, including the Federal Disaster Assistance Administration, the National Weather Service, the Federal Emergency Broadcast System and about a dozen others.
In an “emergency”, FEMA was, through EO 12148, to virtually take over the key functions of the national government by means of “senior representatives” and “liaison a-gents” now positioned in every major government agency.
Incredibly, FEMA even has the power to assume the duties of the president himself.
…Those who want to know the complete truth about its not-so-innocent nature only need to peruse Carter’s EO 12148, as it appeared on July 24, 1979, in the Federal Register, and as it was reprinted in the May 26, 1980 issue of The SPOTLIGHT.
Finally, President Ronald Reagan updated this EO in his last full year in office on November 18, 1988, leaving his successor, Bush, the tools to create a dictatorship, his “New World Order”. (20)
Then came up to the top of the top, the EO 11051:
“The Director of the Office of Emergency Planning authorized to put Executive Orders into effect in ‘times of increased international tension or financial crisis’. He is also to perform such additional functions as the President may direct.” (21)
It is not specified civilian or elected; may concern anybody, even a close political friend… times of increased international tension or financial crisis: may be related to absolutely anything outside to continental United States, like a major crisis in the Middle East or in Yugoslavia or even in Russia…. May also concern a “Crash” created by a sudden “Coup” in Russia…
Finally, has been created the most unknown HR 4079:
“Forty-eight of your tax-paid congressmen sponsored the Newspeak-named ‘National Drug and Crime Emergency Act’ which could cost you more than $30 TRILLION and imprison 30 MILLION Americans. …here’s what that Constitution-scuttling measure could do:
Declare a five year “Emergency” imposing martial rule. ?Impose testing for drug and alcohol use.
Authorize mass expulsion of drug and alcohol users from public and private high schools and college and fire any workers using drugs.
Accelerate confiscation of cars, boats, planes, other property of casual drug users.
Set much higher mandatory sentences for drug and alcohol use. Previous maximum sentences would become minimum sentences.
Allow revocation of probation, parole and suspended sentences.
Reopen World War II Japanese ‘Relocation Centers’ as concentration camps.
Activate military bases as prisons to ‘re-educate’ Americans.. Create a new private prison system.
In effect, suspend the 4th Article in Amendment (the ‘Bill of Rights’) to our Constitution which prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures, and the 8th Article in Amendment which prohibits excessive fines, bail or punishment. Police would have legal right to break into any home WITHOUT a search warrant, arrest any person, and hold him WITHOUT CHARGE INDEFINITELY.
In effect, ‘legalize’ slave labor by amending present law that restricts purchase of goods and services by prisoners.” (22)
