Twelve Years After 9/11, State of Emergency Continues
Obama Re-Signs Proclamation Order 7463 Once Again, by Tim Watts - 091013

As expected, President Barack Obama once again re-signed Proclamation 7463, as he has done every year since arriving in office, just as his predecessor George W. Bush did also, eight times on his own.

What is Proclamation 7463 and what's so special about it that both Bush and Obama have signed it every single year since 9/11?

It's as bad for the US as the Patriot Act is, and that's some heavy finger pointing.

Proclamation 7463 is the State of Emergency Order that was signed by President Bush on September 14, 2001. It is also the order that more than likely triggered the US Government COG (Continuity of Government) plan, that has yet to be confirmed by US officials as having ever been rescinded.

The case could be made, if they keep resigning the State of Emergency order every year, why on earth would they rescind the COG?

That's a question yet to be resolved, however, it is notable that over a dozen years after 9/11, they are still perpetuating the State of Emergency Order (SOE), when in fact there is no apparent current threat, that did not exist before 9/11.

And since the CIA was the creator of Al Qaeda, and we fought alongside them in Libya, plus we want to help them now in Syria, it has become painfully clear to many that the terrorist is us.

As George W. Bush noted with his historic infamous quote... "You're either with us or you're with the terrorists."

Again, a case could be made that we have given the power of terror to ourselves, reserving the exclusive right to do as we wish, under the banner of 9/11 and the ensuing false War On Terror.

Americans need to ask themselves why this SOE is still in effect, because it has become a very dangerous enabler that this government has clearly exploited.

The important question is, how does this state of emergency order affect our US Constitution? Typically, as governments go, under a state of national emergency, constitutions tend to get set aside.

Perhaps this is why the media doesn't care to say a lot about the current SOE?

Knowing what we know about 9/11 and the War On Terror, these questions need to be addressed by the Congress and Senate as to why we are still at a state of emergency, a dozen years after 9/11.

Extending a national state of emergency declaration for over a dozen years is a very dangerous thing to do for any republic, let alone a faux democracy. It negates the checks and balances that we normally have in place to curtail a government from going rogue.

It undeniably gives too much unchecked power to the state.

The continuation of the state of emergency order is without a doubt grossly unwarranted and does nothing more than seriously jeopardize freedom and liberty.

This is not a good thing for the United States.

The sad thing is, most people don't even know that the State of Emergency still exists, because the corporate mainstream media refuses to talk about it.

Now why on earth would that be?

If the government and media won't talk about it, then perhaps they don't want us to know about it.

Time to start asking more questions. Call your representatives today and see if they are even aware of the current SOE. Don't be surprised if they have no clue.

If they are aware, then challenge them respectfully as to why it is necessary.

When you get right down to it, the renewed SOE is essentially a gateway to a US police state. It gives our government special powers far beyond their normal scope. That's a dangerous thing because when it comes to government, power taken is seldom ever given back.

Somewhere in the cosmic ether, Orwell surely must be laughing.

For Immediate Release -- September 10, 2013

Letter -- Continuation of the National Emergency Message

Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1622(d), provides for the automatic termination of a national emergency unless, within 90 days 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 in Proclamation 7463 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 in effect after September 14, 2013, the national emergency with respect to the terrorist threat.

For Immediate Release September 10, 2013

Notice -- Continuation of the National Emergency Notice

- - - - - - -


Consistent with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1622(d), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency previously declared on September 14, 2001, in Proclamation 7463, with respect to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and the continuing and immediate threat of further attacks on the United States.

Because the terrorist threat continues, the national emergency declared on September 14, 2001, and the powers and authorities adopted to deal with that emergency must continue in effect beyond September 14, 2013. Therefore, I am continuing in effect for an additional year the national emergency that was declared on September 14, 2001, with respect to the terrorist threat.

This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.
