Evidence is Growing: Continuity of Government Plan is Currently in Effect

In two previous posts (here and here), I showed that Continuity of Government (COG) plans were implemented on September 11th, and I argued that it is possible that they have never been suspended.

Now, one of the top investigative journalists in the country, Larisa Alexandrovna (the lead journalist at Raw Story), says:
"it seems to me that this administration has justified its crimes by NOT suspending the state of emergency that went up on September 11, 2001. They are using emergency powers if you look at the whole of the spying, military actions inside the US, etc. I would wager that if asked, this administration will admit that we have been in a state of emergency for their tenure in office."
Remember that Continuity of Government plans -- that is, the measures that go into effect in case of emergency -- suspend the Constitutional form of government, cut elected officials out of the loop, and may even allow the government to tell the media what it can and cannot report.

Remember also that the entire Homeland Security Committee of the U.S. Congress has been denied access to the government's Continuity of Government Plans even though it has clearance to view such plans (video; or here is the transcript). Indeed, a member of that Committee has said "Maybe the people who think there’s a conspiracy out there are right”.

If we are in a state of emergency and COG plans are in effect, then Congress acting even more obviously like corporate and military lapdogs than normal and totally ignoring the will of the people would make sense. It would make sense that "impeachment is off the table", because Congress would not even be sitting at the table under a non-constitutional COG form of government; and Congress certainly would not be a co-equal branch of government with the Executive branch.

If we are in a state of emergency and COG plans are in effect, then the corporate media's acting even more obviously like the disinformation arm of the government than usual would make sense.

Given the stakes, it is vital that we demand that Congress and the White House state on the record whether or not Continuity of Government plans are currently in effect. We're not going to make any progress on whatever issue is most important to us -- peace, liberty, election integrity/vote fraud, 9/11 truth, etc. -- if we are living under a COG regime and we don't even know it.

And our strategy will be different depending on whether we are living under a COG regime or a Constitutional form of government.

We have to find out one way or another.

Bush didn't need to declare a state of national emergency, it was declared by FDR in 1933 and never rescinded. You can read about this in more detail at War and Emergency Power Act Portal to Dictatorship

In 1933, Congressman Beck, speaking from the Congressional Record, states,

"I think of all the damnable heresies that have ever been suggested in connection with the Constitution, the doctrine of emergency is the worst. It means that when Congress declares an emergency, there is no Constitution. This means its death. It is the very doctrine that the German chancellor is invoking today in the dying hours of the parliamentary body of the German republic, namely, that because of an emergency, it should grant to the German chancellor absolute power to pass any law, even though the law contradicts the Constitution of the German republic. Chancellor Hitler is at least frank about it. We pay the Constitution lip-service, but the result is the same."

{ ... }

"But the Constitution of the United States, as a restraining influence in keeping the federal government within the carefully prescribed channels of power, is moribund, if not dead. We are witnessing its death-agonies, for when this bill becomes a law, if unhappily it becomes a law, there is no longer any workable Constitution to keep the Congress within the limits of its Constitutional powers."
In 1973, in Senate Report 93-549, the first sentence reads.
"Since March the 9th, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency."
So what happens in a national emergency according to the Constitution?
"This vast range of powers, taken together, confer enough authority to rule the country without reference to normal constitutional processes. 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, in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens."
. . . and this situation has continued uninterrupted since March the 9th of 1933.

Does this make it more clear how Bush could have violated the Constitution so blatantly and with impunity? He was appointed dictator and while other Presidents have largely played along with the facade of democratic principles in a constitutional republic, George hasn't. Why hasn't the Congress responded to their duty to uphold the Constitution? It has been suspended for 75 years and no one has made a move to change the settings on this game.

Read again the powers of the President during a "national emergency". Look familiar?

This has got me worried even in Australia.

We must continue what we are doing, educating people.

Education not force.

Let them fire the first salvo.

The person to fire last, wins.

I'm a college sophomore, professional writing major, and I have decided to uphold the Pledge of Allegiance I first made in kindergarten. I didn't know what I was saying back then, but now I understand its importance and I want to uphold its words. I've grown tired of complaints. It's time for action. Just under an hour ago, I began sending this message to Facebook groups, and I will be sending it to alternative news websites and blogs in a moment. I need as much help as I can get, because I have no experience in organizing marches; I've never even held a protest sign.

I'm using the idea you suggested: the 2 million citizen march, wearing red, white, and blue.

The message reads as follows:

To anyone who considers themselves Patriotic,

I have grown tired of complaining. Complaining is what we do when we are too lazy to take action. And at this point, we are in dire need of action. I have taken the Pledge of Allegiance, and now I am going to uphold that pledge.

I'm preparing to rally as many people as possible for a march/protest in Washington DC this coming July 4th. I'd like to get as many as 2,000,000 people involved in a march through the capital city. The goal is revolution. Not to overthrow the government, but to reinstate it! An end to lawless dictatorship and a return to the rule of law. We must restore the Constitution.

I want at least 2 million people to come en masse to the capital city of our glorious country and show our righteous fury. Peacefully! I will encourage everyone to wear red, white, and blue to show our Patriotism. And, of course, to bring cameras and camera phones to document any violence the Police bring.

I am going to contact as many organizations as possible to spread the message. With any luck, we can do this. This is important beyond description. It doesn't matter what god you believe in, what sex you prefer, what race you are, or what political party you identify with. This is bigger than any of that.

Our Founding Fathers are rolling in their graves; the ideals and laws they based our nation on are being trampled upon! If you have any interest in helping me, any interest in showing that you love the country you live in, and if you are fed up with the lying tyrants that are raping our Constitution and usurping our civil liberties and rights, then join me!

A question most of these discussions (not just here) do not ask (nor answer):

Is there even a constitutional basis for suspension of the constitution?

Cheney's implied claims that he is part of a
fourth branch of government start to seem less insane if we consider that what was really implied was not that there was a fourth branch of government but that the form of government in effect is not part of the three branches of government that we thought we had. Yet, the media would not be allowed to report on such a topic, due to the continuity of government plans. How is this different than a coup? The duplicity is astounding. This is not partisan politics, my fellow countrymen. Indefinite use of continuity of government plans is treason.

Regardless of whether or not COG is in effect, we can and should lobby to have the legislative authority for it repealed. Its existence is a danger and the authority would better be exercised by the states.

Well now that all the facts are in regarding the COG, I can see that this is the "foundation" for the New World Order.

Not long after WW-II, I was in France and met a couple who were political opposites of each other. She was conservative and wanted the basic freedoms found in a constitution. He was a Communist who firmly believed in Illuminati/Socialistic "salvation."

Later, I was in Italy and met a restaurant owner who was a Communist and capitalist. I thought that was odd but later realized that such combinations were rather ordinary.

Put all that together and you have the grassroots for forming the New World Order composed of corporate Nazis who know how to make the money and pay taxes to the Political Communists and their lap dog bankers to fully control the rest of us slaves.

Other than Revolution, of course.

Reminds me of the line from Star Trek III from Dr. McCoy:

"How can you get a permit for a damned illegal thing??"

If that is the case, then what does that mean about the legality of every single law or resolution passed by congress since then?

The Banksters, and more importantly the International Banksters gained control of America long ago. James Traficant spoke before Congress in the early 1990's on the Bankruptcy of America as can be seen at this link:

which is probably how he caught a ride on the DOJ railroad to prison.

Many have no idea the Wilson and especially Roosevelt were the worst Bankster scoundrel traitors to the U.S. Constitution that America has ever seen. These scumbags put America under U.C.C Law and made most Americans subservient to Congress. Here is some very interesting reading on all of this:

This is some very interesting reading.
