90 years ago today, FDR declared an emergency, by using Martial Law — It was called The New Deal.
His Martial Law is still in effect today.
In 1973 the U.S. Senate investigated the possibility of terminating the national emergency, but did not teminate it.
According to Senate Report 93-549, written in 1973:
“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”
Many people think that the right of Habeas Corpus must be suspended to have Martial Law. But this is not true, see Article 1, section 9.
Many people think that Martial Law must be declared, but this is not true. In Lincoln’s Martial Law manual, government guns in the street is sufficient notice of Martial Law. In the old days, back when we had liberty, it was never a government function to kill someone without a trial. If an officer wanted to protect himself, he can provide his own weapon.
After FDR socialists confiscated our gold (our only lawful money) in 1933 (based on the guise of controlling a banker created depression) the FDR socialists on March 9, 1933, removed domestic transactions from the exclusions to the 1917 Trading with the Enemy Act (40 Stat L. 411). Trading with the Enemy is always illegal. Prior to March 9, 1933 domestic transactions were always legal. After March 9, 1933 all domestic transactions are illegal. We are the enemy of the occupation forces. Again: trading with the enemy is always illegal, but now our domestic trading is with the enemy of your foreign masters. Domestic transactions can now be regulated and punished. I repeat: domestic transactions are illegal. It is illegal to buy or sell in America unless your transactions are with a surrendered person. It is lawful to trade with surrendered people. It is illegal to trade with the unsurrendered enemy. But guess who surrendered.
Details: The March 9th 1933 national emergency referred to by that Senate report amended in Section 1, the authority of the Trading With The Enemy Act of October 6th, 1917. FDR signed into law on March 9, 1933, chapter 1, Title 1, Sec. 1, 48 Stat. 1:
“Subdivision (b) of section 5 of the Act of October 6, 1917 (40 Stat. L 441), as amended, is hereby amended to read as follows: … during any other period of national emergency declared by the President, the President may, through any agency that he may designate, or otherwise, investigate, regulate, or prohibit, under such rules and regulations as he may prescribe by means of licenses or otherwise, any transactions in foreign exchange, … payments by banking institutions as defined by the President, …, by any person within the United States or any place subject to the jurisdiction thereof…”
“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, are hereby approved and confirmed.”
