Obama Declares Another National Emergency When None Exists - by Stephen Lendman

Well, not exactly. In fact, he renewed, for the second, time, the Bush administration's 9/11 one, a White House press release saying:

"Letter from the President on the Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to Certain Terrorist Attack"

"Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act, 50 USC 1622(d), provides for the automatic termination of a national emergency unless, prior to the anniversary date of its declaration, the President publishes in the Federal Register and transmits to the Congress a notice stating that the emergency is to continue in effect beyond the anniversary date. Consistent with this provision, I have sent to the Federal Register the enclosed notice, stating that the emergency declared with respect to the terrorist attacks on the United States of September 11, 2001, is to continue in effect for an additional year."

"The terrorist threat that led to the declaration on September 14, 2001, of a national emergency continues. For this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue (it) in effect after September 14, 2010, the national emergency with respect to the terrorist threat."

In fact, no threat existed nine years ago or today. Declaring one, however, lets Washington maraud globally and at home, committing state terror. It's the only kind that matters, given America's destructive power and intent to wage it as part of the nation's permanent war agenda. Peace for this country is anathema, a topic two previous articles addressed, accessed through the following links:

Continuity of Government (COG) Authority

An earlier article explained it in detail, including its historical roots, accessed through the following link:

Initially planned and developed under Ronald Reagan, it's renewed annually, Obama's 9/10/10 "Continuation" extending it another year, a process repeating ad infinitum despite no justification for doing it.

COG created coup d'etat authority in America, its pretext being:

"a coordinated effort within the Federal Government's executive branch to ensure that National Essential Functions continue to be performed during a Catastrophic Emergency."

If implemented, the president and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will have unprecedented police state powers to declare martial law without congressional approval - to rule extrajudicially, free from constitutional constraints. As a result, personal freedoms will be suppressed for our own good, replaced by tyranny, the kind of America no one wants but one day may arrive full blown, ready or not.
