America’s Constitutional Dictatorship

World Newstand, First published in July 1996 by the North Bridge News

“National Emergency: A state of national crisis; a situation demanding immediate and extraordinary national or federal action” Black’s Law Dictionary

“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… for when this bill becomes a law, …there is no longer any workable Constitution to keep the Congress within the limits of its Constitutional powers.” -Spoken by Congressman Beck in 1933 prior to the passage of the Farm Bill.

Once an emergency is declared, there is no Constitution. Senate Report 93-549 (written by Congress in 1973) states in the very first sentence

“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 Dictatorship.

    From what I read this declaration comes from the USC which is not our law, but pertains only to govt.. So, they have declared an emergency that pertains only to the United States. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    • tc says:

      USC SHOULD only apply to the govt. and the mechanisms within the govt. system, but that’s not what they did.
      It all goes back to the 14th Amendment. “…and SUBJECT to the jurisdiction thereof..”
      This is where the govt. claims it gets the power to do whatever it wants, whenever it wants, to whoever it wants, for as long as it wants.
      It’s nice to see the betrayal and treason laid out in one nice little article.
      All the enactments and proclamations listed above are actually Declarations of War against the American People.

  2. Enemy of the State says:

    Declarations of War against the American People.

    oh I see tc already said that

    Here’s a little light reading.
    Articles of Impeachment Against Federal Reserve.

    Americans do not get it! All this Trump bullshit is calculated to create chaos. Trump is a shill designed to create frustration that leads to the disintegration of the fabric of America. It is all planned, it is staged and Trump is only an actor who never had any desire but to deceive and lie to the American public. His life shows he is not an honorable man, never was and never will be…but America deserves what it gets. Both sides of aisle are bought and paid for and the rest of America has their head up their arse.

    • kender says:

      Yeah, well don’t gloat! Just b/c you may not be an american doesnt mean you wont go down with us….it’s all connected. All of it. The reasons nothing has happened yet is because we still have our weapons. If you are an american then disregard. But those Down Under and those with Mommy issues have dutifully given up their weapons willingly! That was stupid! We are kind of “stuck” in the middle. In the middle of a global see saw. We don’t have our heads up our “arse”. What would be your solution? That we….uh….vote them out? Instead of berating us for being “yokels” across whichever pond can you perhaps give us a better visual than GIVING UP OUR GUNS??? You guys give up the only piece you have to the wolves …..and you want us to get a clue???

    All Legislation that is to be binding on the American people MUST be in Pursuance thereof (follow) the US Constitution. Just because the Congress created it, or a US President, or a judge (that only gives OPINIONS, do NOT make laws, or lawfully decide guilt or innocence), or an agency (which has NO LAWFUL authority to create any type of legislation), etc. If it is NOT in Pursuance thereof the US Constitution, it is NULL AND VOID.

    Can it be enforced, sure; but the enforcers then are committing *TERRORISM, and quite possibly treason, definitely a felony and Perjury, and quote a lot of statutes, etc broken.

    28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

    It is just Color of Law. Take the Patriot Act, or the NDAA, Free Trade, wEtc, Etc, etc; everyone acts as if it is LAWFUL and binding, it is not. Anyone who enforces it shows their TREASON and *terrorist activities against the American people. The contract that they are required to follow is in writing; and like all contracts, it is lawful and binding, but hey, guess what, that Oath makes everyone who serves within the governments PERSONALLY responsible for their actions.

    Alexander Hamilton: “There is no position which depends on clearer principles that that every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid.”

    It is the US Constitution itself that is the supreme LAW of this land, not the people who serve within the federal government, nor the people who serve within the state governments.

    JFK, Yale University, June 11, 1962: “For the greatest enemy of the truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived, and dishonest – but the myth – persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “The several States composing, the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government; but that, by a compact under the style and title of a Constitution for the United States, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a general government for special purposes — delegated to that government certain definite powers, reserving, each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self-government; and that whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force: that to this compact each State acceded as a State, and is an integral part, its co-States forming, as to itself, the other party: that the government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party (the people) has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “The policy of the American government is to leave their citizens free, neither restraining nor aiding them in their pursuits.”

    Treason – Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution of the United States provides:
    Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
    The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

    Three key elements are necessary for an offense to constitute treason: an obligation of allegiance to the legal order, and intent, and then action to violate that obligation.

    If you have never listened to KrisAnne Hall teach the US Constitution, may I recommend her classes, they are free. I do not always agree, but that is true with everyone, but I highly respect her knowledge as I do those who “speak” here.

    There has been so much dumbing down for decades. That was a deliberate action done to Americans, along with the corrupted and scummy corporate media.

    Those that serve within our governments are not supposed to hide anything from the people.

    Patrick Henry, American colonial revolutionary: “The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.”

    The federal government may not lawfully circumvent the U.S. Constitution by international treaties. It may NOT do by Treaty what it is not permitted to do by the U.S. Constitution.

    James Madison: “But it is objected, that the judicial authority is to be regarded as the sole expositor of the Constitution in the last resort; …”

    Thomas Jefferson: “…To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions is a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men and not more so. They have with others the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps… The Constitution has erected no such tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruption of time and party, its members would become despots….”

    Thomas Jefferson: “If the federal government is allowed to hold a monopoly on determining the extent of its own powers, we have no right to be surprised when it keeps discovering new ones.”

    Alexander Hamilton, Federalist 33: “…If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard [The Constitution] they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify….”
