President Obama signs Executive Order allowing for control over all US resources
Examinier.com ^ | 3/17/12 | Kenneth Schortgen Jr

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

Totalitarian control via Executive Order, and it's not even covered in the newspapers.

Not with a bang. Not with a whimper. No even with a yawn.

Had anybody bothered to pay attention they would have known 20 years ago the left objective was to seize all the natural resources from private owners.

In 1992 Bill Clinton made the comment that he believed all the natural resources belong to the country as a whole and not the individual land owners. It was his belief that individuals could only own the surface of the land, not the minerals below the surface or anything defined as natural resource on the surface, water, timber, etc.

***This executive order is added to Richard Nixon’s EO 11490 ***

THAT should have scared off 20% of those who were going to vote for him. Shows you just how far we have sunk as a people.

And if he loses, he will do as much damage as he can between Nov. 6 and Jan. 20.

On Dec 21, 2012, Obama will have had a little over a month to stew in his humiliating, crushing and unexpected defeat at the hands of the American people.

He’ll still be Commander in Chief.

He’ll still have the nuclear ‘football’. Just sitting there. Staring at him. Taunting him. Daring him...

I have been on the road all day listening to every talk show I could find. I am enraged that no one is screaming about this.

That especially applies to the republican contenders who should be fighting for the stage to announce that they would repeal this immediately. It seems like a paraphrase of the Hugo Chavez governance plan.

Where is the outspoken libertarian?

Brett Baier carried the story tonight on Fox. However, the story was mostly a report how people are reading too much into it and that is because it was released on Friday which gave room for speculation.

If we are reading too much into it, which seems to mean it's not that important; WHY WAS IT WRITTEN?

...and if we are reading too much into it, then surely it's not too much to ask for a repeal.

Well you should have been screaming for a long time because this EO represents pretty much the same state of affairs that have been in force since 1933.

Slow down brother. I went ballistic too, until I did my homework. This has been pretty much the same verbiage, same EO, since about Reagan.

Yes, it's worse in Obama's hands, but the EO only allows for analysis of policy, not implementation.

See more here.

And we know Hot Air is no Politico Obama-butt-boy-outfit.

No, the problem is that the powers the President wields are far in excess of Constitutional permits regardless of who sits in the White House. George W. Bush was just as bad in that regard. Most folks just don't know how badly they've been had, much less for how long.

Much has been said about this EO. I admit my blood boiled when I first read it.

However, gaining some perspective, this is an updated rehash of EOs issued by Clinton and Bush. The most level, fair critique I've read is the one at Hot Air titled, "National Defense Resources Preparedness" executive order: Power grab or mere update?

"Well you should have been screaming for a long time because this EO represents pretty much the same state of affairs that have been in force since 1933."

Several comments say the same thing. Do you have any idea why the need to rewrite an existing law if nothing is different?

There was a pretty good analysis on the sidebar this morning. Effectively, the main reason is that we now have a DHS where we had various other lines of authority. The purpose was a clarification.

Now, that does NOT mean that everything is hunky dory and we can go back to sleep. Effectively, pursuant to the bankruptcy of 1933, the President has been invested by our creditors with illegal and unchecked military powers within US borders (which is why I provided the link above; I urge you to read it all).

Sorry, I thought my prior post had a link. Must have goofed in posting. As to the article this morning, here. I did not say that the article went back to 1933. I was saying that the powers have been in place since 1933 and did offer and refer you to a link above to Barefoot's World that discusses the War Powers Act and the Trading with the Enemy Act. I urged you to read it. Did you?

They haven’t followed the constitution in a while - and that is because we don’t fight for it.

In the end we have pushed for this imbalanced mess - to follow the constitution means stopping the giant monstrosity that is the Federal Government. Unfortunately we all wanted the FedGov to push our pet political ideas (with the power of a gun behind it). And they did our bidding and now everything is a federal crime. Everything is a lawsuit. And everything we do has to be approved by a bureaucrat in Washington.

The FedGov, according to the constitution, shouldn’t be pushing anyone’s pet ideas. They should be in existence to protect our liberties and our borders and that’s about it.

But everyone wanted this monster - and now we have it - the same monster that will eventually crush christians and conservatives. We can all point our fingers in the mirror to see who is to blame. We asked for a mighty, ruthless giant, and we got one. God help us.

I find it amazing that the entire leftist media still follows him and no one questions his actions or motives. Some day something is going to happen that causes some retrospection and when it does I wonder if there will be anyone left in DeeCee with the courage to drag the facilitators before an investigative body.

Oh, I don't know about that. It might be a nice club to have so that the networks stay polite after 07 November 2012. Otherwise their *resource* might have to be *temporarily* taken in trust by the incoming Republican administration.

Unless, of course, they run Romney or Santorum.
