Obama Maintains a State of National Emergency

No threat whatever exists. Alleged ones are fabricated. They’re fake. They used to enforce police state harshness.
Fearmongering is longstanding US policy. So is bald-faced lying. At issue is supporting wealth, power, and privilege. It’s about advancing America’s imperium.
One war after another follows. Permanent ones persist. So does police state ruthlessness.
On September 14, 2001, George Bush issued Proclamation 7463: Declaration of National Emergency by Reason of Certain Terrorist Attacks.”
They were state-sponsored. So-called “crazed Arabs” had nothing to do with them. Bush didn’t explain. The 9/11 Big Lie persists.
So does a state of national emergency. Faking one doesn’t matter. It’s in force. It’s renewed annually. On January 21,Obama did so.
