Emergency Powers Give Barack Obama Authority Over Just About Everything During A Major National Crisis

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Barack Obama With His Hand On The Resolute DeskPresidents have always exercised emergency powers, but now thanks to dozens of new laws, regulations, court decisions and executive orders, Barack Obama is the most powerful president in all of U.S. history.  Of course the U.S. Constitution does not actually give the president any special powers during a time of national emergency, but over time presidents have decided that they should be able to exercise such powers and the courts have generally agreed with them.  During World War II and prior to that, these emergency powers were largely uncodified and were primarily used during times of war.  But since World War II things have completely changed, and this has particularly been true since 9/11.  Over the past decade or so, a whole host of extraordinary powers have specifically been given to the office of the president, and all that it takes to exercise them is a major “national emergency”.  So if we do have a full-blown economic collapse, a historic natural disaster, a significant war or a massive pandemic, Barack Obama could use the emergency powers that he has been given to essentially take authority over everything.

There is not a single document or series of documents that contain all of the emergency powers that Barack Obama could potentially wield during a major national emergency.  As I mentioned above, these powers come from literally dozens of laws, regulations, court decisions and executive orders.  But in this article I will discuss a few important documents.  One of these is a presidential directive that was issued during the second term of George W. Bush.  It is entitled NATIONAL SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/NSPD – 51/HOMELAND SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/HSPD – 20, and you can take a look at it on the FEMA website right here.  This document is primarily concerned with the continuity of our federal government in the event of a catastrophic emergency.  So precisely what would constitute a “catastrophic emergency”?  The following is how the document defines that term…

“Catastrophic Emergency” means any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions;

That sounds quite broad to me.  It could apply to all sorts of scenarios.

If we do have such a “catastrophic emergency”, the president essentially becomes a dictator at that point.  The document certainly talks about the need to ensure that “constitutional government” continues, but during the course of the emergency there really is not much of a role for the other two branches of government to play.  Instead, the “shadow government” takes over under the overall command of the president.  The following is a short excerpt from the document…

The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government. In order to advise and assist the President in that function, the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism (APHS/CT) is hereby designated as the National Continuity Coordinator. The National Continuity Coordinator, in coordination with the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (APNSA), without exercising directive authority, shall coordinate the development and implementation of continuity policy for executive departments and agencies. The Continuity Policy Coordination Committee (CPCC), chaired by a Senior Director from the Homeland Security Council staff, designated by the National Continuity Coordinator, shall be the main day-to-day forum for such policy coordination.

Of course the 11 page document that we have on the FEMA website is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to continuity of government planning.  Unfortunately, most of the plans are top secret and are not allowed to be seen by the public.  Astonishingly, this even applies to members of Congress.  The following comes from Wikipedia

On July 18, 2007, Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR), a member of the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security, requested the classified and more detailed version of the government’s continuity of government plan in a letter signed by him and the chairperson of the House Homeland Committee, which is supposed to have access to confidential government information. The president refused to provide the information, to the surprise of the congressional committee.

Another document that raises a lot of red flags is an executive order entitled “National Defense Resources Preparedness” that was issued by Barack Obama on March 16th, 2012.  This particular executive order updates previous executive orders, and it gives the president extraordinary authority during a time of national emergency.  Below, I have posted most of section 201 of that executive order.  As you can see, it potentially gives Barack Obama authority over just about everything during a time of national emergency if he feels it is needed for “national defense”…

Sec. 201Priorities and Allocations Authorities.  (a)  The authority of the President conferred by section 101 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2071, to require acceptance and priority performance of contracts or orders (other than contracts of employment) to promote the national defense over performance of any other contracts or orders, and to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense, is delegated to the following agency heads:

(1)  the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;

(2)  the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;

(3)  the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources;

(4)  the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;

(5)  the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and

(6)  the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials.

(b)  The Secretary of each agency delegated authority under subsection (a) of this section (resource departments) shall plan for and issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources and establish standards and procedures by which the authority shall be used to promote the national defense, under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.  Each Secretary shall authorize the heads of other agencies, as appropriate, to place priority ratings on contracts and orders for materials, services, and facilities needed in support of programs approved under section 202 of this order.

A similar executive order regarding national communications was issued on July 6th, 2012.

But the powers that Barack Obama could potentially wield during a time of national emergency are not just limited to what is written down.  This may shock many Americans, but it is true.  In the past, presidents have used their “emergency powers” to suspend habeas corpus, to place American citizens in internment camps and to seize private property.  The following comes from Wikipedia

A claim of emergency powers was at the center of President Abraham Lincoln’s suspension of habeas corpus without Congressional approval in 1861. Lincoln claimed that the rebellion created an emergency that permitted him the extraordinary power of unilaterally suspending the writ. With Chief Justice Roger Taney sitting as judge, the Federal District Court of Maryland struck down the suspension in Ex Parte Merryman, although Lincoln ignored the order. 17 F. Cas. 144 (1861).

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt similarly invoked emergency powers when he issued an order directing that all Japanese Americans residing on the West Coast be placed into internment camps during World War II. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld this order in Korematsu v. United States. 323 U.S. 214 (1944).

Harry Truman declared the use of emergency powers when he seized private steel mills that failed to produce steel because of a labor strike in 1952. With the Korean War ongoing, Truman asserted that he could not wage war successfully if the economy failed to provide him with the material resources necessary to keep the troops well-equipped. The U.S. Supreme Court, however, refused to accept that argument in Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer, voting 6-3 that neither Commander in Chief powers nor any claimed emergency powers gave the President the authority to unilaterally seize private property without Congressional legislation. 343 U.S. 579.

And it is important to keep in mind that Barack Obama now possesses far more power than any of those presidents ever did.  All it is going to take for him to exercise those powers is a major national emergency.  This is something that Jim Powell discussed in an article for Forbes

Not long after that, we found ourselves in an open-ended national emergency declared on September 14, 2001 and extended since by both George W. Bush and Barack Obama.  This means the president has standby powers from hundreds of statutes that would enable him to re-introduce military conscription, seize private property and in myriad ways establish a government-run economy.

Thankfully, things are still somewhat stable for the moment so Obama does not have a reasonable excuse to use all of the powers that he has been given.  But that could change at any time.  If we do see a “catastrophic emergency” in the next year or so, there are very few limits on what Barack Obama would be able to do.  That includes potentially postponing or suspending the 2016 election so that he can remain in office throughout the course of the national emergency.

We have never seen such a thing happen before, and hopefully we never will.  And of course it isn’t just Barack Obama that we need to be concerned about.  A future leader of this nation could potentially be even worse than him.  It has been exceedingly foolish for us to give a single person so much power in the event of a “catastrophic emergency”, and in the end we may regret this bitterly.

  • Priszilla

    That power was GIVEN to him by laws and courts – other people.

  • Horiboyable .

    It is for this reason the fore fathers made provisions for an event like this. This type of situation was at the root of the right of the citizen to bear arms. If you have a crazy government you can form militias to combat the government. When Benjamin Franklin said, “you have a republic if you can keep it”, I think he had this in mind.

    • AzDi

      Hoping our Military will stand with Americans against the dictator.

      • Nemnor

        Very unlikely for the Military to “stand with Americans”. The Military and the Police are the “violent arm” of the Ruling Class (“the 1%”) and ANY dictatorship will be FOR and OF the Ruling Class – as it has always been.

        The Military would most likely remain the “protectors” of “the 1%”, during and after any “emergency” situation.

  • K

    This is what happens when the same people are returned to office again and again. They end up bought and paid for. You have a totally useless Government who does not represent the common man at all. No the Republic is gone, and will not return anytime soon. The people lack the will to do anything effective. In the end a Country gets the Government it deserves. Sadly this is the Government 80% of the population deserves.

    • Horiboyable .

      When people really feel pain, they will rise. It is not your time yet. Europe is worse, they are feeling pain and civil unrest is not far away. When European Nations start defaulting you will see some real carnage. USA citizens are in a better position because you have the right to bear arms. We are defenseless citizens.

      • Mike Smithy

        The people of Europe are so domesticated that they have lost the will to fight. They will gleefully put the rope on their own necks and walk off the edge of the cliff in service to bankster whims and desires.

            Michael, I’ve been seeing this poster all over the net, posting this same thing ad nauseum. He’s really getting on my nerves. Maybe brain damage from the geoengineering?

    • Randy Townsend

      Almost. This is the result of politicians that have no allegiance to the Constitution, but instead, value keeping their office as the priority. Gerrymandered districts, exemption from federal laws they have granted themselves, a continuing decrease in political involvement by the average citizen, a judiciary that no longer acts independently, all of these have given us a government that essentially does whatever it wants. Automatic pay raise? Done. Judicial approval of actions never before granted a President? Done. Creation of regulatory agencies, “czars”, and unelected bureaucrats that issue rules that have the force of law? Standard procedure. This will not end well, because there are still enough people that will not be sheep herded by government drones…..

    • Nemnor

      K, you stated – “…Government who does not represent the common man at all…”.

      This has been the case with virtually every government from since the founding of the USA, and a return to the “Republic” is also not the answer.

      However, (extreme) “Patriotism”/”Nationalism” is equally “sinful” as (extreme/blatant) “Anti-patriotism”. And, to save the World (and by extension, save every country), sufficient people must become genuine “Internationalists”, as it is only at that “enlightened” level (i.e. being a genuine “Internationalist”) is there any real hope for the future of the World.

      It is at the prospective of a genuine “Internationalist”, is one able to more accurately analyse and understand the main root cause of the major issues facing every country and the World as a whole. And, by extension, the genuine “Internationalist” is best equipped to (hopefully) come up with effective/lasting solutions to the major issues facing every country and the World as a whole.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      It is true. In fact, 79 members of Congress have been in office for at least 20 years. This is something that I recently wrote about right here…

    “Emergency Powers Give Barack Obama Authority Over Just About Everything During A Major National Crisis”

    And when the big one (in what ever form it is) hits, martial law will be in place and then it will be Dictator for life B Hussein. Something that I’m sure the occupant of the white house’s handlers have been planning from day one. Wow I’m pessimistic before my first cup of coffee.

    • Horiboyable .

      An economic event could be classified as an “emergency”

    • Lugnut Capp

      Obama is A tall thin man with A small head


    The assumption was that we would always have an honorable, law abdiding person in the Oval Office. Assuming we get through the balance of Hussein’s term without a declaration of Martial Law (a very large assumption IMHO), we might want to reflect on that when we enter the voting booth in 2016. Do you really want to give this kind of power to HRC? We live in interesting times.

    • Avner

      TPP is bathroom tissue. That is all.


        That is what we thought about NAFTA but we found out otherwise.

      It makes NO difference who is in the WH. For a long time now, the USA is really a 2-Party Dictatorship. there is NO genuine democracy in the USA (and virtually anywhere else in the World)

      Can you currently imagine a third party (i.e. a party fundamentally different from the “Dems” and “Reps”) winning an election in the USA anytime soon?


        I do not disagree with you. Our choices are bad, worse and horrible. HRC is horrible. Maybe we can get bad? Now a third party might nudge the leviathan a little to the center or the the right but that is the best we can do other than repeat the serenity prayer. I will say this. If HRC, the Fraud, is elected it will Game Over. May be too late already.

    It does strike me a tad remarkable that congressmen have relinquished their power so readily. Congress is unwittingly making itself unnecessary, and eventually the lobbying bribes and campaign donations will dry up. Does greed make you stupid?

    It’s clear that the US is going towards an imperial form of government. Anyway I find curious how much hatred there is against Obama, when it’s far more probable that the next republican president will be the first emperor, not Obama.

      Get over your curiosity and looks at the facts!

    • Cal

      No we are not.

      We are a Constitutional Republic, and if you are not American enough to fight for liberty, please move to another nation.

      Our forefathers bought our freedom, and our type of government and paid a very heavy price so that we could live free and fight for it when needed.

      Get off the couch, READ the US Constitution. READ not text. This is our nation, and I for one will die before I let those treasonous scum destroy our nation, and I want the death penalty for all traitors to the USA.

      Guess what, most AMERICANS do, which is why Obama was the greatest gift to the increase of the purchase of weapons within the USA.

      Here in America no one was given that authority.

  • DJohn1

    The problem with executive power is mortality.
    Sooner or later everyone dies.
    The entire idea behind a republic is to keep people obtaining the office by way of election. Therefore, the man in charge changes.
    No one person needs that responsibility long term.
    We treat all of our executives with honor and respect as long as they realize that at the end of their second term of office they have to step down and make way for someone new.
    The very pressures involved in a presidency make it a mortal endeavor long term.
    Keep a close eye on the signs of aging. Because what is happening is the very pressures of that job will add 20 years to a person’s age in 8.
    The same holds true of women seeking that office.
    Personally I think a person would have to be slightly insane to even want that amount of responsibility. Because the fact is that job has stolen away 8 years of his life.
    Add this further regulation and control given the President in times of emergency means putting a lot of additional pressure on the person holding the office.
    I have held a minor office in a union. I did it so well that I was re-elected every six months against some of the finest opposition one could have. Why? I was honest. I tried to help people.
    But when it was time to step aside and allow someone else to take the helm, I was glad to do it.
    That President elected this second term is running against time to accomplish what he intended to accomplish in this office. I do not envy him that office one little bit.
    He is one heart beat away from Vice President Joe Bidden being President in his place. He is two heart beats away from the Republican in the house taking his place.
    Neither alternative president wants the job.
    If I were to change anything about the job it would be putting time restrictions on any executive order made out there. Meaning that any executive order eventually has to be approved by the Congress. By the ELECTED people representing us that eventually have to come before the people for re-election and possible judging of what they have done in office.
    No executive order should outlive the term of a President.

  • underaged

    Correction – Emergency powers are given to the president, not the person named Obama. Please try to reign in your hyperbole.

    • Mike Smithy

      Is the person named Obama, President of the USA? If so, tone down your idiocy.

      • Cal

        No, actually Obama is impersonating a US President, but he could NEVER be a US president LAWFULLY.

        He was made a presidential candidate through *Election Fraud, and was elected by **Election Fraud, nor did he/does he meet the ***three requirements that all presidential candidates MUST meet in order to lawfully represent the people and carry out the duties assigned to that branch by the US Constitution.

        * The 2008 Democratic Nominating Committee (DNC) document did not include the normal
        language stating that Obama was qualified to be a candidate. The 2008 Republican Nominating Committee (RNC) document did, as is normal.
        This shows that the DNC knew that Obama was not qualified, or why change the form?

        ** South Bend, Indiana JURY found that Election Fraud put BOTH Obama and Hillary Clinton on the
        presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election.

        *** Read the US Constitution

    • Cal

      NO, here in the USA within our Constitutional Republic there is NO SUCH THING AS “emergency powers” or “martial law”. Those are only valid in monarchies or dictatorships, etc.

      Here in American those in government are NOT THE government, they are there to carry out the duties assigned to the branch they are under. Our government is the US Constitution, and each state’s Constitution.

  • Rukander

    More killing on the way over the world.

  • greanfinisher .

    I was only surprised that this didn’t occur during the previous administration. Regardless, in such a scenario described here, the U.S. Constitution would be suspended (along with the liberties and freedoms-perceived or otherwise), and most likely eventually discarded.
    Everything would be on the table including savings, precious metals and gun confiscations, random detentions, capital controls, wide scale curfews and seizures.
    The most troubling aspect would be that chief executive may not feel himself obligated at all to cede any of his emergency powers after the actual crisis had passed. In that sense, it would simply depend on his good nature alone whether some semblance of constitutional law is restored.

    • Cal

      “… chief executive may not feel himself obligated at all to cede any of his emergency powers…”

      He does not EVER have any “emergency powers”, nor the power to call for “martial law” here in America. Those are the exact opposite of the US Constitution and would be (another) open declaration of Treason on his, and his administrations part.

      Here in America there is NO SUCH THING AS “”emergency powers” or “martial law”.

      READ the US Constitution.

      Home Building & Loan Association v. Blaisdell, 290 U.S. 398, 425 (1934): “Emergency does not create power. Emergency does not increase granted power or remove or diminish the restrictions upon power granted or reserved.
      The Constitution was adopted in a period of grave emergency. Its grants of power to the Federal Government and its limitations of the power of the States were determined in the light of emergency and they are not altered by emergency.”

      The Supreme Court of the United States, 1866 – yes it does still apply: “The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times, and under all circumstances. No doctrine involving more pernicious consequences was ever invented by the wit of man than that any of its provisions can be suspended during any of the great exigencies of government. Such a
      doctrine leads directly to anarchy or despotism.”

      James Madison, Father of the US Constitution: “Because
      if . . . [An Unalienable Natural Right of Free Men] . . . be exempt from the authority of the Society at large, still less can it be subject to that of the Legislative Body. The latter are but the creatures and vicegerents of the former. Their jurisdiction is both derivative and limited: It is limited with regard to the coordinate departments, more necessarily is it limited with regard to the constituents. The preservation of a free Government requires, not merely, that the
      metes and bounds which separate each department of power be invariably maintained: but more especially that neither of them be suffered to overleap the greater Barrier which defends the rights of the people. The Rulers who are guilty of such an encroachment, exceed the commission from which they derive their authority, and are Tyrants. The people who submit to it are governed by laws made
      neither by themselves nor by an authority derived from them, and are Slaves”

      Judge Thomas M. Cooley: “Legislators have their authority measured by the Constitution, they are chosen to do what it permits, and NOTHING MORE, and they take solemn oath to obey and support it. . . To pass an act when they are in doubt whether it does or does not violate the Constitution is to treat as of no force the most imperative obligations any person can assume.” (If you are not aware, ONLY the legislative branch, those elected into office themselves, can create laws that are binding on the people here in the USA. No one else can no matter what branch they occupy.

      So when Obama says “… by the authority invested in me by the US Constitution….” and creates an EO He is LYING. He does NOT have the lawful authority to make EO’s that have any bearing on anyone except those who work for the executive branch and on Washington DC. They are not LAWFUL, nor are the binding on the people. Those who enforce them are made into criminals and traitors to the American people and the US Constitution.

      • greanfinisher .

        You are correct strictly speaking, but since when have those in power paid any regard to the Constitution (except when it fitted their purpose)? FDR certainly didn’t pay it any heed when he signed the 1934 National Firearms Act, created military tribunals, and indiscriminately incarcerated all Japanese-Americans. This was all back then, and in much humbler times..
        Now we are dealing with the here and now, and after Congress foolishly handed over virtual dictatorial powers to the executive branch with the so-called ‘Patriot Act’. For all intents and purposes, tyranny is knocking on our door while we speak.

        • Cal

          True, but what has been missing out of this equation?

          “We the People”. We are the ones who have not been doing our job, and letting the corrupt serving tell us what we can and cannot do, create agencies of all types they are NOT allowed to have, practice Election Fraud, etc.

          Who’s duty is it, as the Militia, to control them? To enforce the US Constitution and all that is in Pursuance thereof it – Supreme law that all MUST FOLLOW in order to be lawful within our nation, and each state Constitution – the highest law of each state and the contract each state governmental employee – elected, hired, contracted, etc are under.

          No where within the US Constitution is that duty assigned to anyone but us.

          We have our own Constitutionally mandated protections and duties that has not been being performed. That is the problem.

          Elections – we ALLOW them to commit fraud, and we do not, have not been removing and charging the corrupt.

          “Good Behaviour” requirement for all judges – state and federal has also not been being enforced. Most jurors do not even understand that THEY decide if the law that is being used against someone is a “good ” law or must be removed BEFORE they ever start deliberations on guilt or innocence. Nor do they understand that i9f they see a judge, etc using “Misbehavior’ in a courtroom, they must call for a Grand Jury investigation by the people.

          Grand Jury – this is our tool, and no one serving in ANY branch has any authority over us and our use of it LAWFULLY.

          Militia – how anyone cannot know that those that serve within our governments – state and federal are REQUIRED to ONLY use the Militia to enforce the laws of the land, protect our borders, etc. Even to defend our nation until a military is formed (“called out”).

          Both a “standing” (permanent) military and a governmental professional law enforcement is FORBIDDEN to them to create and use. That was to protect us from ever being a police state.

    I’m going to hate that Yugga Cup year 2016. It’s not going to be A god year t al for any one of us. Rember that the year 2016 is going to be the year of the Yugga Cup

  • Maureen Peltier

    As ignorant & sleepy as America has been, this country is filled with strong fighters. Strong minded & proficient clean honorable killers. Our defense will NOT allow them to get far. Sleepy Americans will wake up & realize the evil that is already here, when the UN, foriegn & DAESH, maybe cartel & other thugs & gangs actually grow a pair & actually start acting on thier threats against true Patriots. Once they pull the trigger, Americans will see a thug Army was being prepared against them in thier own lands. Than Americans will fight. I know they will. The able bodied of course.
    That’s why they haven’t even started with us (in a major scale like in Iraq & Syria) They know they will loose here in our land. They are waiting for Obama to bring them reinforcements. Pretending they hate Obama. But they don’t. Obama is thier brother/leader. I can see we have already been infiltrated. The only reason the government no longer will be protected by many of us, is because we know it has already been infiltrated. I know my brothers & sisters in arms know. I know they know. We saw to much & all have had lots of time to figure it all out.
    Anyone that is still in government or politics & a true patriot should leave or begin an exit plan. A QUICK ONE. Because when they start making their moves, they will either kill you & your family or hold you against your will. Fake soldiers befriending real Soldiers will kill real Soldiers (and their families) as they will be off guard thinking they are with like minded battle buddies. There are a lot of fake soldiers right now. Color does not matter. Dont get comfy if your so called friend is the same color as you. I’ve seen the red flags just before I got out. #ChrisKyle , that attacker, that soldier was not real. He was implanted long ago. AND WHITE. They have been serving by our side a long time now. Foiling our missions, stealing our info, creating hostile unethical work environments, fake leaders providing weak & toxic leadership, re-defining our military core values, etc.
    Real Soldiers, wake up! Things are really bad systemically in every branch throughout the country & you know it! Get out now!
    Let the gay agenda, wiccan cult, & spies etc stand alone as if this ‘new’ military with no more God will survive the spies & islamic radicals. The real Army is no longer part of the government. Get out & join your real patriot brothers & sisters. Time to prepare to battle against the domestic enemies with your real Battle Buddies. Execute. Find a strong, local militia in training & join with no fear. Stop acting confused or in fear of the government spying on your thoughts, interactions, communications. They already know many are on to them & will not serve them. The militias are formed with many true Patriots, good law enforcement, military already communicate off the grid. Go. Nothing will happen until the battles actually begin. Neither side is gonna pull the trigger just yet. Obama is close, as you can see, much of the very equipment we worked with is refurbished & instead of in military motorpools or proper authorized storage, staged in various locations with UN equipment & other foreign war systems outside military instalations. That is not part of the peace time RESET process. They are still staging it all. Don’t help them stage. Just leave. Share the Intel with friendlies/patriots. Be sure to vet anyone you come across as a Patriot. Already spies not just on the Internet watching comments like mine, but in real world militias. However, they get found out & isolated. Just use your common sense & prior training & experience to carefully discern whom your talking to.

      Maureen, do you have any advise on organizing a local militia/defense force? What things would indicate to you that a person shouldn’t be included because their loyalties are suspect? We don’t want just everyone knowing where the weapons & ammo are stashed, now do we?

      • Maureen Peltier

        Absolutely agree! Sorry, just saw I have a reply here. One should see the leadership & I’m sure the leaders will properly vet any potential members with several other trusted Co leaders & such. A team would make such choices.

      • Maureen Peltier

        Oh, and I do not have proper guidance on how to organize such an important & vital group. My only advise, is to search for one in place. I’m no too leader.

    • Stan Jones

      Paranoia runs deep in fantasy land , Maureen.

      • Maureen Peltier

        Checked out your last 30 comments. Inconsistent at best, for sure no solutions ever provided or thought of, absolute troll material. All over the map, lacks any concern, values or morals.

  • Richard Broberg

    This means no election next year or ever. Obama is now President for Life.

    • Nemnor

      While I believe there will be an election in 2016, it is not far fetch to imagine the US Ruling Class (“the 1%”) cancelling elections (for a while at least).

      You see, the Ruling Class are aware that more and more Americans are beginning to realize that – elections in the USA are really big shams. That elections are really to give the American people the IMPRESSION that they live in a Democracy.

      From since the early 70s, and after several decades of swinging back and forth between the “Dems” and “Reps” (while the USA continue to DECLINE), the US Ruling Class needed a “non-white face” and/or a “woman” in the WH, to help keep up the ILLUSION that the USA is a democracy.

      Now, after the “black face” is gone, a “woman” (Hilary ?) is already selected to (likely) be the next President – and help keep up the illusion. However, after 1 or 2 terms of a “woman” in the WH, there will be NO (significant) improvement/change for the better with the socioeconomic condition in the USA (and the condition is likely to get worse – because most Americans are brainwashed into NOT knowing the main root cause of the issues facing the USA and the World, and hence, NO real solution without right knowledge of the cause of a problem).

      I imagine that after the US Ruling Class play their “last card” (i.e. a “woman” in the WH), their next move might then be to cancel elections (at least for a while). Because (eventually) they would have no choice but to stop PRETENDING that the USA is a democracy, and it would then be “open dictatorship” – just like the “open dictatorship” the USA has been supporting, from time to time, all over the world, for the past 75 years or so.

  • Mondobeyondo

    Thank goodness there is an amendment in the Constitution that prevents a president from running for more than 2 terms in office. Otherwise we might be stuck with King Barack I for quite a while.

    There’s a reason why there are checks and balances between the 3 branches of government. Say Obama tries to suspend the Constitution and impose martial law. That’s against the law, and the judicial and legislative branches would call for impeachment, and if guilty, imprisonment (maybe at Guantanamo).

    So I’m not that worried about Obama gaining TOO much power…

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      If there is a major national crisis, Obama may not leave at the end of his term. I know that sounds bizarre right now, but just file that away and remember what I said.


      • RageHard84

        Hopefully he will leave, but there’s a possibility he may not. Haven’t there been incidents of the Constitution being “suspended” in other nations?

    • Gay Veteran

      “…That’s against the law, and the judicial and legislative branches would call for impeachment, and if guilty, imprisonment….”


  • WhoKnows

    Breaking news. We now have a national crisis.

    Chris Soules, 33, and Whitney Bischoff, 29, have called off their wedding, Mike Fleiss, the creator of The Bachelor tweeted on May 28. The couple, who met and fell in love on season 19 of The Bachelor, just recently celebrated the six months of their engagement! So, what went wrong?

    • Nemnor

      “Mindless” shows like The Bachelor, are a “distraction” from the worsening socioeconomic issues facing the US Citizens. (LOL)

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      That is very sad.

  • AzDi

    From what I understand, there are places build in many areas underground in the US for “the current government including congress and who knows how many others” will go in this type of emergency that Michael talks about.

    That right there is a very sad and disgusting bit of information, because they are the people who have put Americans in this position! Who want’s them back.

  • Kent Harris

    Americans are fat and lazy. Americans as long as they are able to get free government cheese they will never rise up. The parable of “Catching the Wild Pig” comes to mind. Wild pigs in the woods when they see free corn lying on the ground they will eat it, then a fence goes up on one side and they get use to it and it continues until all the sides are up. Then finally, the gate is the last portion and you slam it shut and you are made captive. Just as the Jews complained to Moses about returning to Egypt as slaves we ourselves want to be under bondage.

  • Just think what Arnold could do with all those powers?

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      But Arnold will never be president.

    • Nemnor

      While the current constitution of the USA, makes it “impossible” for Arnold to be President, IF you are implying that, with that kind of power, Arnold will make a significant difference for the better, I posit that Arnold will also NOT make a difference (for the better), that the likes of Arnold would NOT be the solution, as he does not show that he has right knowledge of the main root cause of the major issues facing the USA and the World.

      The person without correct knowledge and understanding of the main root cause of the major issues facing the USA and the World, is really part of the problem (and will, of course, NOT be part of the solution).

  • Tatiana Covington

    You realize, of course, that they just make this stuff up out of nothing. They’re just a bunch of people waving fancy documents around to hypnotize you… what about them?

  • Undecider

    The people taking charge of the Constitution and Bill of Rights have nothing to fear. The problem is and always has been the people having abdicated their rights expecting government to be their saviors. Bottom line, look in the mirror for the person to defend your rights. Government can only take over your life if you allow it.

  • Patriot Alice

    The Mayor said to give them room to destroy. Well, give them the room they need. The Mayor is the elected leader, let her lead, she knows her people best…

  • WILL SEE ABOUT how far your authority goes with me and my people during any crises, you freaking tyrant.

    • df NJ

      I’m not 100% convinced the military is actually under Obama’s control anyway. I think the careers are the real power.

      • df NJ

        But you know, the members of Congress, the president, and the military all swear to uphold the Constitution. When people fail to keep that oath there will most likely be consequences. Although most people worship authority above all else, the Constitution still carries with it an air of patriotism for what it represents.

  • Rohan

    I guess the Economic emergency is going to come as USA is facing with a lot of problems which will in a matter a of time bring a hail storm of problems to US and Obama as stated will be the sole protector or dictator for the people(as he feels good) –

    1.USA owes trillions to other countries (it was $16 trillion in 2012)

    2.Boomerang kids i.e unemployment is another problem (kids not willing to work) and prefer to be dependent on their parents
    3.Hyperinflation( USA is just printing money .It has no Solid thing to back it up)
    4.The OBAMACARE AND MEDICARE which are constantly and unnecessarily emptying the us treasury.

    And as mentioned the problem will be heightened if Obama acts foolishly. RIP AMERICA

  • df NJ

    Feel like 1932. Looks like the Germans won the war after all.

    • df NJ

      People really don’t care about politics for the most part. We mostly have government by the rich, for the rich, screw the worker. People love the military. People love to worship authority. Everyone hates government. Everyone especially hates Congress. Maybe it’s time to have a right wing military style dictatorship so we can finally get it out of our systems. Then maybe people will start caring about politics again and representative democracy will get back in vogue.

  • Jay

    I see much truth to what you are reporting, however, focusing on Obama, making it appear as if “HE” and only him is the madman president who usurp all these powers, SMH … All of these powers were already laid out for any president to use outside of the constitution. So the next president will have even more power… I hope you write this same article again just this time you will put Hillary’s name, who will most likely be the next president on this cesspool of corruption.
