Biden extends his Covid-19 emergency powers edict

The national emergency due to the Covid-19 pandemic, first declared by President Donald Trump in 2020, was set to expire March 1. On Friday, President Joe Biden extended that national emergency. It expires in a year unless he ends it or continues it for a fourth year.

Read the declaration of emergency.

Biden wrote “Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)) provides for the automatic termination of a national emergency unless, within 90 days prior to the anniversary date of its declaration, the President publishes in the Federal Register and transmits to the Congress a notice stating that the emergency is to continue in effect beyond the anniversary date.  In accordance with this provision, I have sent to the Federal Register for publication the enclosed notice stating that the national emergency declared in Proclamation 9994 of March 13, 2020, beginning March 1, 2020, concerning the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, is to continue in effect beyond March 1, 2022.”

Biden wrote, “There remains a need to continue this national emergency.  The COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause significant risk to the public health and safety of the Nation.  More than 900,000 people in this Nation have perished from the disease, and it is essential to continue to combat and respond to COVID-19 with the full capacity and capability of the Federal Government. Therefore, I have determined that it is necessary to continue the national emergency declared in Proclamation 9994 concerning the COVID-19 pandemic.”

As the national emergency continues, the order gives over 130 special powers to the president, including the ability to deploy troops inside the country to tamp down civil unrest. He can freeze bank accounts, and shut down various types of communications during an emergency. It also gives the federal government vast powers involving other aspects of Americans’ lives, such as their health insurance premiums, deadlines for filing for federal relief or benefits, and the ability for the government to waive requirements for Medicare, Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA.

There are already several national emergencies that on the books, specific to prior national crises, usually involving national security, terrorists, or terrorist states. President Trump declared a national emergency to secure the southern border, for example, after Democrats blocked him in Congress from building a wall on the border with Mexico to stem the millions of non-citizens coming north to America through non-legal means. He was also trying to stop the massive influx of illegal drugs. Democrats in Congress were in an uproar over it, saying he had overstepped the separation of powers in the Constitution.

But Democrats in power have made no similar objection to the extension of Biden’s vast authorities. Nor did they object when he extended the national emergency one year ago.

As the president maintains the national emergency status for the pandemic, most states are easing up the policies and restrictions that have crippled normal life for Americans and have harmed their states’ economies, led to a mental health crisis, a worsening of the opioid epidemic, and that have stunted the education of America’s young.

  1. How long will good people continue to listen to the lies and DO NOTHING! There never was an emergency! This is a plandemic! A coup d’ etat by the elites and corrupt politicians to take over the world. Klaus Schwab and George Soros as well as the rest of the tyrants like Trudeau must be arrested and charged with crimes against humanity! Emergency Authorization for COVID jabs must be removed. There are effective safe treatments. Everyone must stand up for their medical and personal sovereignty or the NWO will OWN everyone! No one will be safe or happy if they implement their plans to destroy humanity!

    • ATS, this will continue until people realize that ” we are the Heroes that we’ve been waiting for”. Time to cowboy up around here.

      • I totally agree! No one is going to come to our rescue. WE have to come to our rescue by being brave heroes like the Canadian Truckers and the current People’s Convoy that is getting ready to begin its trek to Washington DC. This government is no longer working for the people. The Biden Administration has gone totally rogue so it’s time that we stand up and take our country back. It’s not going to be easy but if we want our children and grandchildren to live in a FREE country, then we must go to Washington and get rid of everyone of these evil people who are no longer working for the people. We begin that in November 2022 through the ballot box.

    • in some respects I strongly believe there is a spiritual aspect to this world wide crime against humanity and it needs a spiritual remedy. Let us redouble our prayers and ask the Lord to forgive us are sins and have mercy on our poor nation!

    • Totally agree with you. I’m sorry, it is WAY past time to call for IMPEACHMENT of this incompetent fool… why has it not been done by now??? Everyone is sick of being played. I refuse to comply! Call for Impeachment… They did less with Trump!
      LET’S GO BRANDON

      • For all the surreal and hyperbolic, Evan-Singh-style nonsense about the 1/6/21 protest and minor riot having been an ‘insurrection’, if these dark globalist totalitarians keep pushing us into a corner, they are going to have a REAL insurrection on their hands! And idiots that they are, they fail to realize that it will mean the end of them, and of their perverted, sociopathic and Orwellian “Great Reset”.

        • I think that is what is part of the script! This is all about compressing the conservative patriots into retaliation against the WEF/Great Reset. When it pops and games on we’ll be herded right into what the PTB intended all along!

    • Absolutely correct yet most people are ignorant of what is happening! I’m so glad there’s another person awake to the global depopulation plan. It’s happening right in front of everyone and the sheeple are blind. Continue to speak truth and some will awaken. Humanity is at stake. This is a spiritual war. For those who think this is a conspiracy….do your research. Look into agenda 2030. Georgia guide stones. Bill Gates 2015 Ted talk about depopulation. The list goes on…. Don’t search on google. Use another search engine like DuckDuckGo. Google censors information!

      • Yes!! You have done your research. Another sensible person, lol. More people need to rise up now or forever hold your peace, and allow your rights to be stomped on. It’s like 30% or so of Americans are sheep with signs on them saying, “Tread on me.”

  2. Of course Biden , (or who is really calling the shots in the white house)would extend the emergency powers. Remember Boy’s and Girl’s, there is nothing so permanent as a Temporary Government Program!

    • Speaking of shots in the White House, Congress is still not mandatory to have them. Good for thee, but not for me. The elites can also have their perspiration filled for the medications that work. Show me the numbers of the Congressmen who have got their shots. Besides Don Young. But he is 89 and is scared.

    • Biden is dead. The imposter has been a series of bad actors, mask wearing actors, and other pawns led by puppetmasters. Get with the program.

  3. Even with all the incontrovertible evidence staring me straight in the face over the past year, it is still hard for me to accept that somebody so senile and so mentally incompetent as Usurper Biden can still be so profoundly evil.

  4. If you are American, Get all your money out of the banks as soon as you can and keep it at home! Bank runs have already started in Canada! The Banks are broke folks and if you keep your fiat paper money in the bank you will loose it and you will loose everything you have because banks will protect themselves first! Truckers are already pulling cash out thanks to the commie in Canada, don’t learn the hard way and think that’s it’s only protesters in Canada that are getting accounts Frozen, Banks are broke!!!! This is happening worldwide and they are trying to keep a lid on it!

      6 hr of patriot music, your new radio station

  5. This is so much of an emergency. We’re going to send a Uber drive to your neighborhood to pick up your ballot. Oh, it’s ok to leave it blank. We got you.

  6. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Russia now has over 170k troops on the Ukraine border. All combat and combat support forces there are in an invasion posture.

    All while our leaders fight over masks, and when they plan to squash the truckers convoy in the USA and start seizure of bank accounts. Keep you children and pets close.

  7. Or unless the Republicans initiate a joint resolution stopping it. Now it will likely not pass the House but the vote count is an excellent political reveal that will feed growth on the Right which will also help us in the ‘24 elections
    Yes Congress can stop this but their is little courage in the swamp

  8. Let us pray that Congress comes to its senses and trims this neo-dictator’s sail before he uses his emergency powers to cancel the Great November Reset.

  9. We may not have a country in ’24, if we do, fair elections will be out the window. Just recovered from my 2nd infection from COVID and again, perfectly fine. We need to end this nonsense now as it will only build and the scenes from Canada will play out here. Or, we can be like Australia and capitulate. They’re all locked down now since their guns were taken.

  10. Biden’s 37 million dollar deal building a Covid test manufacturing plant in Germany that wont be completed until 2 years from now and Australia just now finishing building a monstrous “Well Camp” prison complete with 30 ft walls and Constantine wire tells me all I need to know about there plans…

  11. This silly, old, demented counterfeit president doesn’t have enough savy or wherewithall to change his own underwater. His battalion of Marxist women in the White House who have no clue how businesses are run or how wars are fought, run Brandon’s day to day presidency. The old pedophile is the best the Democrat s could do.

  12. Extending his emergency edict powers for another WHOLE YEAR? What science is he listening to? On what grounds is he using to extend these powers? Talk about total and complete power!!! This has gone far enough folks!! Can anyone say dictator? What a dilemma we’re in. We really can’t want to get Biden out of office because just look at his replacement. It’s a no win situation.

  13. I heard he attempted to extend but he was thirteen (13) hours late after the deadline So will it be quite illegal to expend funds for this purpose? He missed the deadline. What are deadlines? Imaginary, suggestions? Good to know.

  14. Party of science, indeed.

    He is going to do his level best to bring down this country. Unless he stumbles us into a war our woke military can’t win

  15. Just another excuse to continue wiping his……feet on the Constitution. THERE IS NO HEALTH EMERGENCY. Just like the “Patriot” act, it’s an excuse to exercise extra-constitutional dictatorial powers. AK Senators: I implore you to put a lid on this joker before it goes hot. I fear that the Americans don’t have the patience our Canadian brothers and sisters are displaying, and of course they have no 2nd Amendment. I pray every day that it doesn’t come to that, and you are the last line of defense. Please, get it done.

  16. The president’s handlers don’t want their powers to expire. Sad really because Americans are getting tired of having smoke blown up their keesters.

    • Now is the time to make your life right with the man upstairs, and stand, United for your country. We are not a one world society.

  17. Ever since President Trump came down the golden escalators to announce his candidacy for president of the United States, many professional and even casual observers of politics and history have wondered just what was going on in the events that followed.

    Many historians and folks who just read the newspaper every morning and watch the news at night felt that something quite different and very odd was occurring.

    Where were all the leaks coming from? Why all the Russia – Russia – Russia talk? What was all this 25th Amendment talk about? Why was there immediate talk of impeachment? What was with the quick firing of Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn by Vice President Mike Pence? Why did the progressive liberal media obviously show that they had a favorite? Why the criminality in the 2020 election? Why the Jan. 6 roundup of citizens who only wanted free and fair elections?

    Now it is clear for all to see, the Deep State was running a coup against Donald Trump. A coup against candidate Trump. A coup against President-elect Trump. And a coup against President Trump while in office. The Deep State, including the Fourth Branch of government (the intelligence apparatus), went after Trump from the moment he came down the escalators. Not a military coup that we once thought of from a banana republic. No rifle fire, hand grenades, or mortar launchers. But a soft and silent, yet deadly coup done by people with suits and ties and dresses and skirts in law firms and executive offices.

    One must wonder why the Deep State/Fourth Branch went after Trump immediately once he announced. It never made sense. Most early observers thought that Trump would govern as a moderate Republican. Possibly a Nelson Rockefeller-type governance. But the enemies of choice and freedom and democracy went after Trump right away. Maybe it was because Trump was not a part of the club. Not a part of the governmental elite. Maybe it was because they knew they could not control him. Maybe they knew a billionaire could not be bought off and bullied by the military-industrial complex. Maybe they knew Trump would not play the game. Or. Maybe it was because he did put America First. Maybe it was because he did believe in nationalism, borders, and America’s sovereignty. Maybe it was because he did not believe in and would not succumb to a One World governance. Maybe, it was because President Trump did not believe the answers to climate change, global warming, health care, wars, starvation, poverty, and Covid all rested in the arms of a One World entity. Maybe, Trump was not going to allow a One World government on his watch. Therefore, the silent coup.

    This was not just typical dirty politics. This was very much a coup-d’etat though, and Special Counsel John Durham appears to be uncovering it.

    With the bombshell release over the weekend by Durham revealing that the Hillary Clinton campaign contracted out with third parties to not only spy on candidate Trump’s emails and computer usage but to hack into and spy on President-elect Trump and then President Trump’s computer/email/online usage. A non-government group and non-government people, including the Hillary Clinton campaign, appear to have illegally spied on the president of the United States by breaking into his computer servers. That is a felony. They did this, the Fourth Branch of government knew it, and nobody did anything about this crime. The Deep State, running wild and free, with cover from the Fourth Branch, ran a coup-d’etat against a rightfully elected President Trump during his entire presidency. Some would call this treason; some would call this an insurrection. Most would call this a felony. Admiral Rodgers told President-elect Trump at Trump Towers that he was being spied on by government officials (the Fourth Branch). President-elect Trump immediately moved his team out of Trump Towers. Trump could not call on the intelligence agencies to catch and arrest the criminals and culprits; because Hillary’s campaign and the Fourth Branch were the criminals. Durham is trying to figure out how to proceed in this Deep State when the referees are the crooks.

    I’m sure that Durham remembers when Sen. Charles Schumer warned Trump, that if you mess with the intelligence agencies, “they will screw you six ways to Sunday.” And Durham himself does not want to be “screwed six ways to Sunday.”

    The Fourth Branch of government is the “surveillance state.” The surveillance state is made up of the FBI/DOJ/DHS/NSA/CIA. This new Fourth Branch does not simply believe that they are equal to the other three branches: legislative, judicial, and executive. This new Fourth Branch, made up of the surveillance and spying communities, now believes that they are above the original three branches. They are a “first” among equals. It’s truly something that George Orwell has written about — in 1984 and in Animal Farm. For those who dismiss this as conspiracy theories, the political prisoners in the D.C. gulags from the Jan. 6 riot might have a different point of view. The J-6 political prisoners know firsthand what the Deep State can do now that they are targeting Americans who might have a different political point of view. The Deep State surveillance entities have used and abused the 9/11 terrorist attack. They have used and abused the Patriot Act by turning the guns inward towards American citizens. Now they are using and abusing the American citizens with a different political ideology. Civil libertarians once warned of the dangers of the Patriot Act. Now, the ACLU is deaf-dumb-blind when it comes to the abusive tactics of the Fourth Branch. This is the first time since the Patriot Act was passed that the Fourth Branch turned all of its weight and power, not after a foreign adversary nor terrorists, but after a fellow American citizen and his supporters whose only sin was having a different political ideology.

    As Special Counsel Durham is now beginning to show, there were a great many felonies committed during the 2016 election, during the Trump presidency, during the election of 2020, and now after the placement of Biden in office. President Trump said that “In another time, it would have been punishable by death.” This is not just vitriol nor hyperbolic language. What would have happened to Americans if they would have spied on FDR during WW II and given this information to the Nazis? What would have happened during the Cuban Missile Crisis if Americans would have spied on JFK and given this information to Castro? What would have happened if Americans would have spied on Ronald Reagan and given this information to Gorbachev? Either death or life in prison would be sure to follow. Well, President Trump was illegally spied on by the Hillary Clinton campaign, and by others; so what should happen to them? This is much worse than Watergate, much worse. Durham is getting in dangerous territory and he knows it.

    The great problem with which Durham will have a very difficult time is that the entities that are supposed to be neutral, supposed to be fair referees, and supposed to be demanding innocent standards of truth…are in on the crime, in on the coup. The Justice Department was anything but just when it came to Donald Trump. This silent coup could not have been done without the help of the Deep State and/or Fourth Branch. This felonious attack by Hillary’s campaign on Trump/MAGA Nation, and the America First agenda had to have already have been known about by the supposed neutral arbitrators of justice. Yet not only did they do nothing, but some were also accomplices. It appears that Durham will find out that some were accomplices before-during-after the crime. John Durham certainly has his work cut out for him. Durham, if he did not know then, he surely knows now, has a tiger by the tail. He does not know whether it is more dangerous to just hold on or to just let go. I am sure hoping Durham does not commit “suicide” as such things can go.

    Senior government officials need to be brought in under oath for questioning. The likes of James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, Eric Holder, Christopher Wray, James Baker, Christopher Steele, Susan Rice, and Valerie Jarrett need to testify under oath as to “what did you do and when did you do it.” A democratic republic only works when the people trust their government. Right now a great percentage of Americans, just do not trust the government. From truckers to churchgoers to moms at school board meetings, the American people are believing the Deep State government of Biden is out to get them.

    Sure looks like Durham is bringing this unfortunate fact to light. There is a Silent Coup!

  18. Be careful what you say. Big Brother, billy gates, georgie porgy, metaburger, and all the libs/fascists advocating the NWO are listening. But if word doesn’t get out, and we don’t resist, we will be accountable. May God bless our efforts and give us the victory in this spirital battle. Amen.

  19. Where is our Congressional Delegation’s outrage over this? If they go along to get along, then they are part of the problem. Boycott Biden’s State of the Union Address.

  20. As long as THIS President(??) is in office, these restrictions will never be disbanded..He is out to extend these quarantines for the rest of his term… The unknown(?)people who are his operatives, will not allow they’re power to be dissolved..It’s these people who are controlling him in his dicisions.
