FEMA: Executive Orders & The National Defense
Authorization Act of 2012
We all have witnessed the glowing reports of the fiasco's of the infamous FEMA escapades!
And how we have seen demonstrated the obvious evidence of bureaucracy over planning and
total disorganized; and ill-equipped implementation of their programs! From the allowance of
formaldehyde-laced mobile-homes; the unprepared distribution of supplies; and flagrant over
spending abuse; and lack of fiscal over-site.
At issue: FEMA, and the Executive Orders(listed below) that have the potential to impact your
life (legally) in ways that you cannot begin to imagine. Given world events, economic crisis,
shortage of natural resources and a general media 'blackout' resulting from unparalleled media
bias_this information is extremely relavant.
FEMA's enormous powers can be triggered easily. In any form of domestic or foreign problem,
percieved and not always actual, emergency powers can be enacted. The President of the United
States now has broader powers to declare 'martial law', which activates FEMA's extraordinary
powers. Martial law can be declared during times of increased tension overseas, economic
problems within the United States: such as depression, civil unrest, demonstrations of scenes
like 'the Los Angeles riots', or in a drug war crisis.
Here are just a few examples of 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) thirty years and could be enacted by the stoke of a Presidential pen:
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of
transportation and control of highways and seaports.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 allows the government to take over all electrical
power utilities, gas, petroleum, fuels, and minerals.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 allows the government to seize all means of
transportation, including personal autos, trucks or vehicles of any kind and total
control over all highways, seaports, and waterways.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10999 allows the government to take over all food resources
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work
brigades under governmental supervision.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 allows the government to take over all health, education
and welfare functions.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national
registration of all persons.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate
entire communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be
abandoned, and establish new locations of populations.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 allows the government to take over control of the
railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 specifies the responsibility the Office of Emergency
Planning, and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect during times
of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce
the plans set out in all the Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish
judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate all penal and correctional
institutions, and to advise and assist the President.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 assigns emergency preparedness function to federal
department and agencies, consolidating (21) twenty-one operative Executive Orders
issued over a fifteen month period.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency
to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution,
of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in the U.S. Financial
Institutions in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state
of emergency is declared by the President, that Congress cannot review the action for

THREE TIMES FEMA STOOD BY READY FOR EMERGENCY
There have been three times since 1984, FEMA stood on the threshold of taking control of the
nation. Once under President Reagan in 1984, and twice under President George H. Bush(Sr)
in 1990 an 1992. But under all of those three scenarios, there was not a sufficient crisis to warrant
the risking of 'martial law'! Most experts on the subject of FEMA and Martial Law have insisted
that any crisis has to appear dangerous enough for the people of the United States before they would
tolerate or accept complete government takeover.
The typical crisis requires the threat of imminent nuclear war, rioting in several U.S. Cities
simultaneously, a series of national disasters that effect widespread danger to the populous,
massive terrorist attacks, a depression in which ten's of millions are unemployed and without
financial resources, or a major environmental disaster.
In April 1984, President Reagan signed Presidential Directive No. 54, that allowed FEMA to
engage in a secret national 'readiness exercise' under the code name of 'Rex 84'! The exercise
was to test FEMA's readiness to assume military authority in the event of a “State of Domestic
National Emergency” concurrent with the launching of a direct United States Military operation
in Central America.
The plan called for the deputation of U.S. Military and National Guard units so that they could
legally be used for domestic law enforcement. These units would be assigned to conduct sweeps
and take custody of an estimated 400,000 undocumented Central American immigrants in the
United States. These immigrants would be interned at (10) ten detention centers to be set up at
military bases throughout the country.
REX 84 was so highly guarded, that special metal security doors were placed on the fifth floor
of the FEMA Building, in Washington D.C. Even long-standing employees of the Civil Defense
of the Federal Executive Department possessing the highest security clearances would be
used for the preparation for drawing up the emergency plan, which U.S. Attorney General
William French Smith vehemently opposed.
1]The plan called for suspension of the 'Constitution', turning control of the government over
to FEMA, appointment of military commanders to run state and local governments and the
declaration of Martial Law. The Presidential Executive Orders to support such a plan were
already in place. The plan also advocated the rounding up and transferring to “assembly
centers or relocation camps” of approximately (21) twenty-one million American Negro
citizens, in the event of massive rioting or disorder, not unlike the rounding of the Jews
in Nazi Germany in the 1930's. And any Native American, remember the 'Trail of Tears”,
initiated during President Andrew Jackson's Administration. Nor the round up of all the
Japaneze-American citizens, after the 'Declaration of War' on Japan, during WW II
2]The second know time that FEMA stood by, was in 1990, when 'Desert Storm' was enacted.
Prior to President Bush's invasion of Iraq, FEMA began draft new legislation to increase 'Its'
already formidable powers. One of the elements incorporated into the plan was to set up
operations within any state or locality without prior permission of any local or state authorities.
Such prior permission has always been required in the past, since the beginning of this nation.
Much of the mechanism being set into place, was in anticipation of the economic collapse of
the Western Civilization. The war with Iraq may have been conceived, as a ploy to boost the
bankrupt economy, but it only pushed the West, closer to a deeper recession.
3]The third scenario for FEMA, came with Los Angeles riots, after the 'Rodney King butality
verdict'! Had the rioting spread to other cities, FEMA would have been empowered to step
in. As it was, major rioting only occurred in the Los Angeles area, thus preventing a pretext
for a FEMA response. On July 5, 1987, the Miami Herald, published reports on FEMA's new
The goal was to suspend the 'Constitution' in the event of a nation crisis, such as a nuclear
war, violent and widespread internal dissent, or national opposition to a U.S. Military
invasion abroad. Lt. Col. North was the architect. National Security Directive No. 52,
issued in August 1982, pertains to the “Use of National Guard Troops to Quell Disturbances”!
The crux of the problem is that FEMA has the power to turn the United States into a police
state, in the time of a real crisis,(or a manufactured crisis?)........Colonel North virtually
established the apparatus for a dictatorship. Of course, the were many others standing around,
in the positions of power, that knew exactly what was being set into motion. They've been
managing to go unidentified, till NOW!!! Only the criticism of the Attorney General Smith
prevented these plans from being adopted. But intelligence reports indicate that FEMA has
folder with (22)twenty-two Executive Orders for the President to sign in the case of an
emergency. It is believed those Executive Orders contain the framework of North's concepts,
delayed by criticism, but never truly abandoned.
Crisis, as the government now see it, is civil unrest. For generations, the government was
concerned with nuclear war, but the violent and disruptive demonstrations that surrounded
the Vietnam War Era, prompted President Nixon to change the direction of the emergency
powers from war time, to time of domestic unrest.
Diana Raynolds, program director for the Edward R. Murrow Center, has summed up the
dangers of FEMA today, and the public reaction to Martial Law in a so-called drug crisis:
“It was President James Madison's worst nightmare, that a righteous faction would
someday be strong enough to sweep away the 'Constitution restraints', designed by
the framers to prevent the tyranny of centralized power, excessive privilege, an
arbitrary governmental authority over any individual.
These restraints, the balancing and checking of powers among branches and layers of
government, and the civil guarantees, would be the first casualties in a drug-induced
'national security state' with President Reagan's Civil Emergency Preparedness
unleashed. Nevertheless, there would be those who would welcome the NSC (National
Security Council) into the drug fray, believing that increasing state police powers to
emergency levels, is the only way left to fight American's enemy within.
In the short run, a national security state would probably be a relief to those whose personal
security and the quality of life has been diminished by drugs or drug related crime. And, as
the general public watches the progression of institutional chaos and social decay, they too
may be willing to pay the ultimate price, one drug free America for 200 years of
