The People Are The Enemy

Let's see if the Congress can stop Bush in the middle east.

The People Are The Enemy

Rick Stanley:

"Since March the 9th, 1933, the United States has been in a state of
declared national emergency. Under the powers delegated by these
statutes, the President may: seize property; organize and control the
means of production; seize commodities; assign military forces abroad;
institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and
communication; regulate the operation of private enterprise; restrict
travel; and... control the lives of all American citizens"

This situation has continued absolutely uninterrupted since March 9,
1933. We have been in a state of declared national emergency for nearly 63 years without knowing it. According to current laws, as found in 12 USC, Section 95(b), everything the President or the Secretary of the Treasury has done since March 4, 1933 is automatically approved: "The actions, regulations, rules, licenses, orders and proclamations heretofore or hereafter taken, promulgated, made, or issued by the President of the United States or the Secretary of the Treasury since March the 4th, 1933, pursuant to the authority conferred by Subsection (b) of Section 5 of the Act of October 6th, 1917, as amended [12 USCS Sec. 95a], are hereby approved and confirmed. (Mar. 9, 1933, c. 1, Title 1, Sec. 1, 48 Stat. 1]".

On March 4, 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt was inaugurated as President. On March 9, 1933, Congress approved, in a special session, his Proclamation 2038 that became known as the Act of March 9, 1933:
"Be it enacted by the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Congress hereby declares that a serious national emergency exists and that it is imperatively necessary speedily to put into effect remedies of uniform national application".

This is an example of the Rule of Necessity, a rule of law where
necessity knows no law. This rule was invoked to remove the authority of the Constitution. Chapter 1, Title 1, Section 48, Statute 1 of this Act of March 9, 1933 is the exact same wording as Title 12, USC 95(b) quoted earlier, proving that we are still under the Rule of Necessity in a declared state of national emergency. 12 USC 95(b) refers to the authority granted in the Act of October 6, 1917 (a/k/a The Trading with the Enemy Act or War Powers Act) which was "An Act to define, regulate, and punish trading with the enemy, and for other purposes". This Act originally excluded citizens of the United States, but in the Act of March 9, 1933, Section 2 amended this to include "any person within the United States or any place subject to the jurisdiction thereof". It was here that every American citizen literally became an enemy to the United States government under declaration.

According to the current Memorandum of American Cases and Recent
English Cases on The Law of Trading With the Enemy, we have no personal Rights at law in any court, and all Rights of an enemy (all American citizens are all declared enemies) to sue in the courts are suspended, whereby the public good must prevail over private gain. This also provides for the taking over of enemy private property. Now we know why we no longer receive allodial freehold title to our land... as enemies, our property is no longer ours to have. The only way we can do business or any type of legal trade is to obtain permission from our government by means of a license.

So who initiated all of these emergency powers?

On March 3, 1933, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York adopted a
resolution stating that the withdrawal of currency and gold from the
banks had created a national emergency, and "the Federal Reserve Board is hereby requested to urge the President of the United States to
declare a bank holiday, Saturday March 4, and Monday, March 6".

Roosevelt was told to close down the banking system. He did so with
Proclamation 2039 under the excuse of alleged unwarranted hoarding of gold by Americans. Then with Proclamation 2040, he declared on March 9, 1933 the existence of a national bank emergency whereas: "all Proclamations heretofore or hereafter issued by the President pursuant to the authority conferred by section 5(b) of the Act of October 6, 1917, as amended, are approved and confirmed".

Once an emergency is declared, there is no common law and the
Constitution is automatically abolished. We are no longer under law.
Law has been abolished. We are under a system of War Powers. Our
stocks, bonds, houses, and land can be seized as Americans are
considered enemies of the state. What we have is not ours under the War Powers given to the President who is the Commander-in-Chief of the military war machine.

Whenever any President proclaims that the national emergency has ended, all War Powers shall cease to be in effect. Congress can do nothing without the President's signature because Congress granted him these emergency powers. For over 60 years, no President has been willing to give up this extraordinary power and terminate the original proclamation. Americans are an enemy subject to tribunal district courts under Martial Law wartime jurisdiction; a Constitutional

RE: "This situation has continued absolutely uninterrupted since March 9, 1933. We have been in a state of declared national emergency for nearly 63 years without knowing it."---

What proof is there that "This situation has continued absolutely uninterrupted..."? Please don't tell me that I have to research every single Statute, Executive Order, etc. since Roosevelt to locate the Act or Order which ended this "emergency".

Just saying something is so does not necessarily make it so. I see nothing in the article to make me conclude that such actions have "continued absolutely uninterrupted". I'm willing to look at evidence that so states, but I don't see any yet. My mind is open on the subject, but you have to show me on what your conclusion is based.

Here is 12 USC 95(b)---

"(b)(1) In the event of natural calamity, riot, insurrection, war,

or other emergency conditions occurring in any State whether caused

by acts of nature or of man, the Comptroller of the Currency may

designate by proclamation any day a legal holiday for the national

banking associations located in that State. In the event that the

emergency conditions affect only part of a State, the Comptroller

of the Currency may designate the part so affected and may proclaim

a legal holiday for the national banking associations located in

that affected part. In the event that a State or a State official

authorized by law designates any day as a legal holiday for

ceremonial or emergency reasons, for the State or any part thereof,

that same day shall be a legal holiday for all national banking

associations or their offices located in that State or the part so

affected. A national banking association or its affected offices

may close or remain open on such a State-designated holiday unless

the Comptroller of the Currency by written order directs otherwise.

(2) For the purpose of this subsection, the term "State" means

any of the several States, the District of Columbia, the

Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam,

the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, the Trust Territory of the

Pacific Islands, or any other territory or possession of the United


I see nothing there to support your contention that the 1933 banking "emergency" is still in effect.
