Skip to comments.President Obama signs Executive Order allowing for control over all US resources
Posted on 03/17/2012 10:44:30 PM PDT by Nachum
On March 16th, President Obama signed a new Executive Order which expands upon a prior order issued in 1950 for Disaster Preparedness, and gives the office of the President complete control over all the resources in the United States in times of war or emergency.
The National Defense Resources Preparedness order gives the Executive Branch the power to control and allocate energy, production, transportation, food, and even water resources by decree under the auspices of national defense and national security. The order is not limited to wartime implementation, as one of the order's functions includes the command and control of resources in peacetime determinations.
Section 101. Purpose. This order delegates authorities and addresses national defense resource policies and programs under the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended (the "Act").
(b) assess on an ongoing basis the capability of the domestic industrial and technological base to satisfy requirements in peacetime and times of national emergency, specifically evaluating the availability of the most critical resource and production sources, including subcontractors and suppliers, materials, skilled labor, and professional and technical personnel; - White House

That, and it smells like we are about to go to war with Iran.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Well, at least some of the media is reporting this.
The administration must have set a record on Friday Document Dumps: Solyndra, Obamacare, Gunwalker, and
and executive order allowing for Peacetime Martial Law...sniff sniff- - - smells like war
Yep. Between now and the election, 0bama will be busy pounding as many nails as he can into Uncle Sam’s coffin.. Just in case.
Obama won’t go to war with Iran, the far left freaks would kick his ass for doing so. Something else must be going on here, preventing future elections from taking place seems more likely.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Ummm, Why this isn’t on Drudge with Flashing Sirens is beyond me....
Time of War. People who wish for a Unitary Executive will get it.
Seems like there is definetly something going on.
[ Obama wont go to war with Iran, the far left freaks would kick his ass for doing so. Something else must be going on here, preventing future elections from taking place seems more likely. ]
Expect to see more “Liberal Wars”.
I’ll bet Obama is steaming pissed off mad that the whole Kony Hoax was exposed.
Expect more of these “Bushfire Wars” as a way to sell that Obama get’s us involved in wars to help the poor people in countries and , cough cough, Soros’s portfolio..
It may not be Iran, but I will imagine we c9uld very well invade some podunk country somewhere in the name of “Social Justice” sometime late this summer. MARK MY WORDS.
Oh I think that they are setting up for some military action against Iran. They are moving battle groups into position and moving equipment over there. From what I have heard, the attack on Iran is almost a done-deal.
As far as co-opting elections, maybe. Both could be true.
I think Ive heard many times in the media how war time brings the country together and a President always gets re-elected during war time, so your theory might be right. If Obama feels like he is going to lose the election he might go to war with Iran, and he will have the media cheering him on, if not Iran, then Syria or some other country.
This election season is going to be very very scary. The progressive movement does NOT want to lose this election, for them, its their ONE chance to turn this country into their European Utopia, they know if they lose the chances of them having this opportunity again is slim to none.
Is it ever going to stop! So if you have your own well...garden....car ....he can say who gets what if he determines so? Like in the case of Marshall law or something a ruther.? Doens't anything have to go thru congress anymore??????? We ought to let all members of congress go home and stop paying them for having no representation.
And Panetta said just a few days ago that the US would get approval from the UN and “let” Congress know if military action was taken. Very odd.
I hope you're wrong....that's our boys out there in those God forsaken places! But then we knew he'd stall off Israel until the election....B*stards playing politics on the backs of our kids!
Yep. I hope I am wrong too.
Something is cooking that’s for sure, and when it involves Obama and his cronies it can NEVER be good. So what’s the excuse they are going to use to invade Iran, intelligence? They are about to attack Israel? Obama will stop at nothing to ensure he gets re-elected, he wants to pull a Chavez and be President for Life
Onyx..just so you don’t miss this thread.
Sick about this....ya know we hope what we call Bo’s going to do doesn’t happen....and then it does. It’s getting harder to “hope” this is going to stop.....even with an election.
Yep. Between now and the election, 0bama will be busy pounding as many nails as he can into Uncle Sams coffin.. Just in case.
And if he loses, he will do as much damage as he can between Nov. 6 and Jan. 20.
Thank you. I will retunr the favor.
I knew Obama was a dictator before he was even elected, I saw he was capable of this when I first set eyes on him, when I told people they thought I was nuts to even suggest it, but look at where we are now, its actually happening..people are wondering why Homeland Security wants 450 million rounds of ammunition, NOT the military, but Homeland Security..what the hell is going on?
Chavez is on his way out very soon, unless Satan crawls out of hell and heals the Communist.
Here is the post from Sat AM, it contains the EO. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2860231/posts
I thought the same thing too when I saw that first speech of his at the rat convention - figured he was BIG trouble. But the reality is so much worse than I ever imagined and he’s only getting started. First he had to soften us up with no jobs, private industry struggling due to his policies and rising prices we can’t afford. Almost half of us are dependents already - how hard would it be to intimidate at least half of those who aren’t yet dependent - especially if they’re hungry.
People call Obama stupid but he is not. He is evil and I believe he is following a plan decades in the making to gut the USA.
This move smells and my gut tells me we have an ambush ahead.
This is a factor
“Something wicked this way comes”.. He is an 0bamanation!
Between Iraq and Afghanistan, I get the feeling that the public has already had its bellyful of war. Committing to another one won’t make Bamsy any more popular than he currently is. He might get a fleeting bounce out of it. Not much more.
Yes, some country that can't fight back.
He wants his rally 'round the flag moment just in time for the election.
OBAMA OR AMERICA, YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH!!!!
PASS IT ON.
and perhaps the 0 is following the advice of the General he put in charge at CIA?
War with Iran??
War within the U.S. between those who take and those who earn?
War with illegals?
Or war on haves vs. the have nots?
War on marxist posers?
Just what are we talking here?
I really despise this quack that sits in the wh.
Isn’t this the way it’s supposed to be? One person ultimately responsible.
Step by step, closer to a dictatorship. And the useful idiots are too busy with their “personal affairs” to see what is happening. What did they think he meant when he said “We are five days away from fundamentally changing the United States of America.”
I know all President’s have these - to make things “legal” in the event....but does this one differ from previous documents?
Does O’s go further to limit our freedoms?
I am Surprised he didnt include that the only resource for News in the event of such an Emergency will be MSNBC,on the Rachel Maddow Show
Most of his far left freaks don't understand how little he cares for them - they are expendable. It is folks like Obama who have killed the most people in wars and "cleansings". It's not so much a question of whether he will start a shooting war, it's a question of who the real targets are.
Must have missed it. When did he say that one?
