Supplanting the US Constitution: War, national emergency and “continuity of government”

by Peter Dale Scott

The National Emergencies Act, one of the post-Watergate reforms that Vice-President Cheney so abhorred, specifies that: ‘Not later than six months after a national emergency is declared, and not later than the end of each six-month period thereafter that such emergency continues, each House of Congress shall meet to consider a vote on a joint resolution to determine whether that emergency shall be terminated’ (50 U.S.C. 1622, 2002). Yet in nine years Congress has not once met to discuss the State of Emergency declared by George W. Bush in response to 9/11, a State of Emergency that remains in effect today. Appeals to the Congress to meet its responsibilities to review COG have fallen on deaf ears.” (05/22/10)
