Obama executive order imposes martial law on United States
Coach is Right ^ | 3/19/2012 | Doug Book

Posted on 03/19/2012 9:03:14 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax

On Friday evening Barack Hussein Obama signed into existence “National Defense Resources Preparedness,” an Executive Order which will afford the president dictatorial powers over the nation and the American people whenever he chooses to implement it.

Some of the more important—and frightening—dictates of the Obama decree:

The President can place the Order in effect virtually whenever and for whatever reason he wishes. Although related to the Defense Production Act of 1950, written as a result of the Korean War, the current Executive Order makes it clear that the nation need not be at war or threatened with aggression by outside forces to be implemented. The Order specifically states that it may be activated in peacetime.

All actions of the Order are ultimately controlled by the President. Obama has appointed the National Security Council and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano as the “integrated policymaking forum” for all Order policies.

All commerce will be conducted according to the demands of the President. All “services, materials and facilities” may be commandeered by the President “as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense…”

Regulations will be issued by the President’s representatives, establishing nationwide standards and procedures of production. The entire economy will literally work under the President’s direction.

He and his representatives will also decide how all important resources shall be apportioned. They will “control the general distribution of any material (including applicable services) to the civilian market.”

The President’s representatives will have authority to...

Interesting that no one is talking about this on the news or by politicians. Even Fox hasn’t reported on it and what it means to every American.

As linked from Drudge:

“A side-by-side analysis of Obama’s order compared to Clinton’s, conducted by Ed Morrissey of HotAir.com, reveals Obama’s order is essentially just an update to reflect changes in government agency structure.”

They don't know it yet, but both houses are on borrowed time.

The very first part all the Holder/Obama plan is to suspend Congress indefinitely. No. They will not be ceremonial, as some have postulated, they will be disbanded and sent home.

The reason I bring this up is because that is the only part of what Hussein is doing that I actually agree with.

The Obama Regime has cocked the trigger on our Constitution. Abraham Lincoln set the precident and Zer0, who worships Lincoln, is getting set to do it again.

I figure he will implement it the day before he leaves office in January, and declare Martial Law.

Cut/paste from comments at GatewayPundit:
‘Most people have no idea that the United Nations has been drafting an environmental constitution for the world that is intended to supersede all existing national laws.

This document has a working title of “Draft International Covenant on Environment and Development” and you can read the entire thing right here. Work on this proposed world environmental constitution has been going on since 1995, and the fourth edition was issued to UN member states on September 22nd, 2010.

This document is intended to become a permanent binding treaty and it would establish an incredibly repressive system of global governance. This “covenant”, as it is being called, claims authority over the entire global environment and everything that affects it. Considering the fact that everything that we do affects the environment in some way, that would mean that this document would become the highest form of law for all human activity. This proposed UN environmental constitution for the world is incredibly detailed.

The U.S. Constitution only has 7 articles, but the UN document has 79 articles. If the U.S. eventually ratifies this treaty, any national, state or local laws that conflict with this covenant will be null and void. This is potentially one of the greatest threats to our national sovereignty that we have ever seen and we need to warn the American people about it.

Essentially what this proposed environmental covenant does is it takes the sustainable development principles underlying Agenda 21 and turns them into global constitutional law.

All parties to this new constitution would be forced to turn their nations into centrally-planned societies where all decisions about everything are evaluated within the framework of sustainable development.’

Proposed UN Environmental Constitution For The World Would Establish An Incredibly Repressive System Of Global Governance

The pieces fall into place. This is why Hussein issued his EO taking over everything. And I’m sure the Democrat controlled Senate will deem this totalitarian UN abomination ratified without debate.

While I put nothing past this POS, I would really need to see this in writing before I throw in my 2 cents.

This statement is false. This declaration is a direct natural extention of LBJ's war on poverty and Great Society. It's about cannibalizing/scavenging on the country in decay.

As for foreign invasion, we do need martial law instated given how many muslims, liberals, communists and retard RINOs are in power and who need the boot, if we were truely Lincolnian.

HOwever, there is better, which is Civil Divorce, which the recent EO above makes illegal, thus rendering the Declaration of Independence null and void.

Other than praising obama for doing it, don't expect anything on this from the main stream media, including FOX.

As obama begins preparing for his second term, the main stream media will be keeping a lower and lower profile as they become less and less relevant and useful to obama.

I predict just after the Nov. elections when he loses. He has no patience and will want to strike out at us immediately.

At first I thought they were just updating, but why would they even delve into this unless they have something in store for this nation.

They all are finagling with language and labels as usual. It has nothing to do with “martial law” per say, but all to do with socialism. THey just put a bunch of mumbo jumbo.

Now, if that mumbo jumbo works, it’s on to the next. Like pedophile mad rapists going on rampage, once a liberal gets a language he can superficialy believe in by the inaction of others, he will do it.

Let him find the language and excuses to start killing people indiscriminately as his foreign henchmen feed him, and then he will do it.

The writing is on the wall, pretty much, at this point in time.

It’s my understanding that any treaty must be approved by the Congress. This means that we need control over our Congress.

One other thing. He is so anxious to bring our troops home. Could it be that he needs them here when he declares martial law? Makes one wonder.

—is this for real?—

I believe the executive order is for real. However, it must be taken into context, regarding any other similar action by other presidents. And take anything in the article not specifically pulled directly from the executive order with a grain of salt.

Though I really like the stuff I see coming from Coachisright, everything must be analyzed if one is to do more than simply read an article for entertainment.

Well....back in Ayers’ heyday...it was only around 25 million dissenters or anti-communists that they would have to deal with. Now it’s more like 150-200 million. So yeah....they’ll need more bullets.

And we’ll be paying for those bullets.

Ironic, eh?

Remember that: PATRIOTS are “Counter-Revolutionaries”

Calm down. This is no reason to get excited!

Make it widely known by posting on all firearm ownership supportive websites that everyone wearing a suit (or a dress) and even suspected of giving or supporting the orders to round up American citizens for re-education in a “FEMA camp” will become the target of Patriot snipers.

Let this become widely well known to all bureaucrats and government officials. Announce that they will instantly become a target on the 24/7 360degree range. This includes at their government offices, at their private residences and anywhere in between.

“If you write, support or attempt to enforce an order to round up American citizens, you will be writing your own death warrant.”

WHAT IS A PATRIOT?

PATRIOTS are not “Revolutionaries” trying to overthrow the government of the United States.

PATRIOTS are “Counter-Revolutionaries” trying to prevent the government of the United States,
from overthrowing the Constitution of the United States. - Unknown Author

Are you talking about Raul Odinga, Obama’s cousin, whose supporters went on Christian-slaughtering rampages when Odinga lost the election in Kenya?

You know...the one that Obama helped him campaign for? I guess Odinga doesn’t read US news...else he would have known not to have his American cousin, the Destroyer, get anywhere NEAR his “campaign”...lol.

Hmmmm. You bring up a good point. Maybe this is the purpose of the Occupy protests: To get it established in order to use IT as the reason to declare Martial Law. Notice how Occupy is spread throughout the country, including Dallas.

Executive Order -- National Defense Resources Preparedness

EXECUTIVE ORDER

NATIONAL DEFENSE RESOURCES PREPAREDNESS

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2061 et seq.), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States, it is hereby ordered as follows:

PART I - PURPOSE, POLICY, AND IMPLEMENTATION

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").

Sec. 102. Policy. The United States must have an industrial and technological base capable of meeting national defense requirements and capable of contributing to the technological superiority of its national defense equipment in peacetime and in times of national emergency. The domestic industrial and technological base is the foundation for national defense preparedness. The authorities provided in the Act shall be used to strengthen this base and to ensure it is capable of responding to the national defense needs of the United States.

Sec. 103. General Functions. Executive departments and agencies (agencies) responsible for plans and programs relating to national defense (as defined in section 801(j) of this order), or for resources and services needed to support such plans and programs, shall:

(a) identify requirements for the full spectrum of emergencies, including essential military and civilian demand;

(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;

(c) be prepared, in the event of a potential threat to the security of the United States, to take actions necessary to ensure the availability of adequate resources and production capability, including services and critical technology, for national defense requirements;

(d) improve the efficiency and responsiveness of the domestic industrial base to support national defense requirements; and

(e) foster cooperation between the defense and commercial sectors for research and development and for acquisition of materials, services, components, and equipment to enhance industrial base efficiency and responsiveness.

Sec. 104. Implementation. (a) The National Security Council and Homeland Security Council, in conjunction with the National Economic Council, shall serve as the integrated policymaking forum for consideration and formulation of national defense resource preparedness policy and shall make recommendations to the President on the use of authorities under the Act.

(b) The Secretary of Homeland Security shall:

(1) advise the President on issues of national defense resource preparedness and on the use of the authorities and functions delegated by this order;

(2) provide for the central coordination of the plans and programs incident to authorities and functions delegated under this order, and provide guidance to agencies assigned functions under this order, developed in consultation with such agencies; and

(3) report to the President periodically concerning all program activities conducted pursuant to this order.

(c) The Defense Production Act Committee, described in section 701 of this order, shall:

(1) in a manner consistent with section 2(b) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2062(b), advise the President through the Assistant to the President and National Security Advisor, the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, and the Assistant to the President for Economic Policy on the effective use of the authorities under the Act; and

(2) prepare and coordinate an annual report to the Congress pursuant to section 722(d) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2171(d).

(d) The Secretary of Commerce, in cooperation with the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and other agencies, shall:

(1) analyze potential effects of national emergencies on actual production capability, taking into account the entire production system, including shortages of resources, and develop recommended preparedness measures to strengthen capabilities for production increases in national emergencies; and

(2) perform industry analyses to assess capabilities of the industrial base to support the national defense, and develop policy recommendations to improve the international competitiveness of specific domestic industries and their abilities to meet national defense program needs.

(c) Each resource department shall act, as necessary and appropriate, upon requests for special priorities assistance, as defined by section 801(l) of this order, in a time frame consistent with the urgency of the need at hand. In situations where there are competing program requirements for limited resources, the resource department shall consult with the Secretary who made the required determination under section 202 of this order. Such Secretary shall coordinate with and identify for the resource department which program requirements to prioritize on the basis of operational urgency. In situations involving more than one Secretary making such a required determination under section 202 of this order, the Secretaries shall coordinate with and identify for the resource department which program requirements should receive priority on the basis of operational urgency.

App. 2071(c)(1) (2), are delegated to the Secretary of Commerce, with the exception that the authority to make findings that materials (including equipment), services, and facilities are critical and essential, as described in section 101(c)(2)(A) of the Act, 50 U.S.C.

App. 2091, to guarantee loans by private institutions.

(b) Each guaranteeing agency is designated and authorized to: (1) act as fiscal agent in the making of its own guarantee contracts and in otherwise carrying out the purposes of section 301 of the Act; and (2) contract with any Federal Reserve Bank to assist the agency in serving as fiscal agent.

(c) Terms and conditions of guarantees under this authority shall be determined in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The guaranteeing agency is authorized, following such consultation, to prescribe: (1) either specifically or by maximum limits or otherwise, rates of interest, guarantee and commitment fees, and other charges which may be made in connection with such guarantee contracts; and (2) regulations governing the forms and procedures (which shall be uniform to the extent practicable) to be utilized in connection therewith.

To ensure the supply of raw or nonprocessed materials from high cost sources, or to ensure maximum production or supply in any area at stable prices of any materials in light of a temporary increase in transportation cost, the head of each agency engaged in procurement for the national defense is delegated the authority of the President under section 303(c) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2093(c), to make subsidy payments, after consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury and the Director of OMB.

“Essentially” is an interesting word. Read both orders side by side and the differences are striking. For example, FEMA is OUT and the likes of Janet Napolitano IN. Napolitano is Obama’s trusted destroyer of individual liberty. Look at her VIPR program at DHS.

Also, Obama’s EO cancels that of Clinton but only makes a few changes to that of Reagan.
The Executive branch is specifically given total authority in Obama’s order, language not in Clinton’s.

In any event, as the title says the EO would provide Obama absolute power over the American public. That doesn’t give me a warm feeling.

Is it coincidence that just at the time that Obamacare is going to be Heard at the USSC, this EO comes out?

Notice the part about ALL National Health Resources are under the control of HHS in this Order?

Even if (highly doubtful) that the USSC does its duty and rules Un-Constitutional the Obamacare, this EO will stifle ANY un-winding of what they've already put in place, and they will CONTINUE Obamacare anyway, because of "National Defense".

The Obama Regime has cocked the trigger on our Constitution.

I believe that Jackson ignored the Constitution first...

The state of Georgia became involved in a contentious jurisdictional dispute with the Cherokees, culminating in the 1832 U.S. Supreme Court decision (Worcester v. Georgia), which ruled that Georgia could not impose its laws upon Cherokee tribal lands. Jackson is often quoted (regarding the decision) as having said, “John Marshall( chief justice) has made his decision, now let him enforce it!”

Obama is in trouble for his reelection hopes. His administration is worried that he will lose the election. What to do?

A war would occupy the minds of the American people. Yeah, that's the ticket!

Iran. A pariah among most nations of the world. U.N. sanctions haven't stopped the race to a nuke. Only a devastating war would do that.

Enter Obama. U.S Navy carries in the gulf are at 6 with 2 more conducting exercises and trials in the North Atlantic. I believe a French carrier is there as well. A stunning amount naval air is present.

Obama hasn't moved our carriers there for Israel's defense. He has done so to strike Iran as a diversion from his failed administration. The MSM would be 7/24 with war news thus shielding him from a worse than bad economy and his narcissistic, epic failure as a _Resident.

The EO peactime authority change. War prep. Just my 02 cents.

Better watch out. I had a thread pulled this morning that implied this EO had to do with the bad guys “making their move.” The conventional wisdom is now that this EO is NO BIG DEAL. Those of us who buck that are kooks.

Is this one the ramp up? . . .your guess is as good as mine.

Obama’s Council of Governers also exists as does HR645.

Watch the censored program, featuring Jessie Ventura in Conspiracy Theory – Police State (Season 2, Episode 4)

Any doubt I had, completely evaporated the morning I witnessed enormous quantities of those black vessels (coffins / aka grave liners) in broad daylight, completely unconcealed,stacked and loaded on several long flatbed trucks lined up one after the other, heading north on Rte. 9 in Dutchess County, NY.

I viewed this EO and immediately was worried, under normal situations this would be something that I would not get anxious about but after considering it given our current state of affairs it is at a minimum disturbing. I understand the need for martial law and limited influence of the fed gov but I would think that it is usually up to the individual states to enact something of this magnituded. in this context and in this our current state of the natation it can not be ignored that this is a power move, something that i am extremely uncomfortable with.

For clarification, you believe that Congress should be disbanded and sent home?

Short answer...Yes.

My hypothesis, if you please.

The current state of Congress does not in anyway represent the people of the United States.

The current state of Congress is a liability and hindrance to the well being of the United States.

The current members of Congress act only in their own self-interests, even if it is in direct opposition to the will of the people, in pursuit of money and power.

The role of Congress is to control or balance the Executive and Judicial branches and they have abrogated that function and responsibility.

It is only when their own personal paycheck and interests are directly affected that they will act or at least attempt to live up to their inherent responsibilities.

So, Yes. Obama should summarily disband them and send them home. If they go, then there will be nothing gained and nothing lost anyway.

On the other hand, if they send Obama’s dumb-ass packing back to Kenya instead, and send Holder to jail where he belongs, then the American people have not only rid themselves of an openly self-professed and self-declared aspiring dictator, but the American people will have also regained a ‘real’ Congress as well.

Obama is not totally a bad guy. And maybe he should be President somewhere. His problem is that he is on the wrong continent. He is baffled by America. His mentality and his way of thinking are foreign to America. He really would do much better in South America or Africa. It would suit him. He is doing what leaders all over the world do, and he is truly ‘struggling’ to understand why it doesn't work that way in America. He doesn't know? He is confused. This is all he knows of leadership, brutality and autocracy. He is just in the wrong country for what he thinks is normal, and that truly is the definition of the American Exceptional-ism in which he professes not to believe. Ah, said Yoda, “That is why you fail.”

All this can be stopped very easily if the 50 governors of the United States say resoundingly - NO!

If Obama stays ONE DAY past his appointed term he is a domestic terrorist, subject to all the laws of the United States under the Constitution. As are any who follow him, and every state can at that point arrest and confiscate any federal personnel and assets that are willingly engaging or being used to further Obama’s terrorist acts.

Everyone here MUST do everything they can to get good people into power in their state legislatures this November, and push them to enact legislation dealing with this problem should it arise. Don’t run the yap, ACT!

Uh yea, the congess is all that - so you want to disband them and leave it all in the hands of the office of the presidency (not obama in particular) that is the same EXACT thing - and worse because it's only 1 person?

I guess that makes perfect sense to you but it sounds like the bullet train to a real dictatorship to me.
