I was alerted to this by Mark Austin on Facebook.
"Congress passed the FEMA emergency for this Oct. HR11 for Obama to continue into a 3rd term.
Everything is in place just in case elections must be limited or cancelled.
LOOK at the actual laws and open plans & drills.
No secret. On 11-1-16 none of this election show will matter if multi-national impact "event" is triggered.
Many reasons to be prepared for the surprise"
Will they make Trump and Putin "hacking" the DNC into an emergency?
“Each dept has it's own plan so anyone of them could be used. Extensive work completed with Bioshield. The NAVY - DARPA sonic tests off the coast of Fla proved they could induce a 4.2 quake in an non-tectonic zone. The Blue Beam test videos we conducted in Vegas were very successful, so that program is exactly on track per the serious science videos I posted back in April on NBL. Big push to have all these various technologies ready for warfare & EVENTS this late Oct just before elections.”
Anything's possible, isn't it?
OBAMA EXTENDS ‘EMERGENCY’ CYBERSECURITY POWERS
29 March, 2016
President Barack Obama on Tuesday said computer attacks remain a national emergency and informed Congress he will renew the administration's power to sanction overseas hackers.
(Russian "hackers" of the DNC? - SMR)
It has been nearly a year since Obama authorized financial penalties against foreign hackers, although he has not exercised his power yet.
Last week, the U.S. government unsealed an indictment accusing seven hackers tied to the Iranian government of paralyzing IT networks at Wall Street financial institutions and toying with a dam flood-control system in Rye, New York.
Some administration officials reportedly have said the charges announced last Thursday could signal the imminence of economic sanctions against Iran for computer attacks.
National emergencies sunset after a year, unless a president notifies Congress three months ahead of the termination date about an extension.
"Significant malicious cyber-enabled activities originating from, or directed by persons located, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States, continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy and economy of the United States," Obama said in his letter to the House and Senate chiefs. As a result, "it is necessary to continue the national emergency" beyond April 1, 2016.
The presidential order allows sanctions against nation state hackers and complicit individuals.
In January 2015, before inking the executive order, the administration imposed financial sanctions against North Korea in retaliation of a destructive hack attack at Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Emergency Powers Give Barack Obama Authority Over Just About Everything During A Major National Crisis
28 March, 2015
“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;
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.
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.
Sec. 201. Priorities 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:
(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 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.
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.
