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.
