A New Emergency Declaration
Jun 28, 2008
Two days ago, North Korea turned over their nuclear program documents to international observers, and then yesterday they destroyed the cooling tower on their nuclear power plant. This was said to be "good news" in all the media. However, according to the White House web site, President Bush has responded to North Korea's action by declaring yet another national emergency. It is dated June 26, 2008.
I am not sure why he has done this, because it appears to make no sense. But I know that lawyers draw up these documents, and so no mistake was made. It reads in part,
I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, find that the current existence and risk of the proliferation of weapons-usable fissile material on the Korean Peninsula constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat. I further find that, as we deal with that threat through multilateral diplomacy, it is necessary to continue certain restrictions with respect to North Korea that would otherwise be lifted pursuant to a forthcoming proclamation that will terminate the exercise of authorities under the Trading With the Enemy Act (50 U.S.C. App. 1 et seq.) (TWEA) with respect to North Korea.
So it is plain to see that America continues to be ruled by martial law. The Constitution remains suspended, and no president seems inclined to give up the dictatorial powers given to him by the Congress in 1933. All of these Executive Orders are issued, not under the authority of the Constitution, but by the power of "unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States." The 1933 resolution was based upon the "Trading with the Enemy Act" of 1919, so the President refers to it again in his current "emergency."
The President says nothing of American nuclear missiles in South Korea. Apparently that is okay, since that is in "our best interests." We love to impose standards upon other nations that are different from our own, all in the name of patriotism. We love double standards, because it allows us to be exempt from our own laws that would otherwise inconvenience us. This is just the political manifestation of the heart of the Church in America, which also loves to impose double standards in our Middle East policies.
I believe that when this nation re-emerges as an independent nation once again, it will do so as part of the Stone Kingdom, having Jesus Christ as its King. Then the law of equal weights and measures will be enforced, and all men will have true equality under the law.
