Evidence is Growing: Continuity of Government Plan is CURRENTLY in Effect
One of the top investigative journalists in the country, Larisa Alexandrovna (the lead journalist at Raw Story), may have just provided an answer:
"If I am reading this correctly, 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 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 were in a state of emergency and COG plans were in effect, then Congress acting even more whorish than normal and totally ignoring the will of the people to get out of Iraq would make sense. If we were in a state of emergency and COG plans were 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, and whatever issues are important to you -- peace, free speech, vote fraud, 9/11 truth, etc. -- it is imperative that you demand that the White House state on the record whether or not Continuity of Government plans are currently in effect.
