James Turk interviews Lawrence Parks on the subject of “emergency powers”.
Note that, in my opinion, the President’s “emergency powers” only apply within the districts and territories “of the United States”. They do not apply within the borders of the States of the Union (“The United States of America”). If my opinion is roughly correct, it implies that your exposure to the President’s “emergency powers” may depend on whether you consent to assent to government’s presumption that you are “in” a territorial state (“this state”) of the singular “United States“.
In theory, if you can establish that 1) you’re a man made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-28); 2) you’re “endowed by your Creator with certain unalienable Rights” (“Declaration of Independence”); 3) are one of the people of a State of the Union (like “The State of Texas”); who 4) is living and working within a State of the Union (a State of “The United States of America“); which 5) is not a “state of emergency”; and who is 6) entitled to “separation of powers”; and 7) therefore does not consent to be subject to administrative law or administrative process; then, 8) you might not be subject to President Obama’s “emergency powers”.
