1979 – FEMA, which stands for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is given huge powers. It has the power, in case of “national emergency”, to suspend laws, move entire populations, arrest and detain citizens without a warrant, and hold them without trial. It can seize property, food supplies, transportation systems, and can suspend the Constitution.
Not only is it the most powerful entity in the United States, but it was not even created under Constitutional law by the Congress. It was a product of a Presidential Executive Order. An Executive Order becomes law simply by a signature of the U.S. President; it does not even have to be approved by the Representatives or Senators in the Congress.
A state of “national emergency” could be a terrorist attack, a natural disaster, or a stock market crash, for example. Here are just a few Executive Orders associated with FEMA that would suspend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. These Executive Orders have been on record for nearly 30 years, and could be enacted by the stroke of a Presidential pen:
# 10995: Right to seize all communications media in the United States.
# 10997: Right to seize all electric power, fuels and minerals, both public and private.
# 10999: Right to seize all means of transportation, including personal vehicles of any kind, and total control of highways, seaports, and waterways.
# 11000: Right to seize any and all American people and divide up families in order to create work forces to be transferred to any place the Government sees fit.
# 11001: Right to seize all health, education and welfare facilities, both public and private.
# 11002: Right to force registration of all men, women, and children in the United States.
# 11003: Right to seize all air space, airports, and aircraft.
# 11004: Right to seize all housing and finance authorities in order to establish “Relocation Designated Areas”, and to force abandonment of areas classified as “unsafe”.
# 11005: Right to seize all railroads, inland waterways, and storage facilities, both public and private.
# 11921: Authorizes plans to establish Government control of wages and salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institutions.
