President Obama has made clear that hes determined to continue pushing his progressive agenda, regardless of constitutional limitations on his power. He aims to have his way by issuing more and more executive orders.
Emboldened by the past 3 years of the most liberal President in American history, it is becoming fashionable to speak openly against the US Constitution and the works of our Founding Fathers
The most ominous sign of possible things to come appeared on March 16, 2012, when President Obama signed executive order 13603 about National Defense Resources Preparedness.
This 10-page document is a blueprint for a federal takeover of the economy that would dwarf the looming Obamacare takeover of the health insurance business. Specifically, Obamas plan involves seizing control of:
* All commodities and products that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals
* All forms of energy
* All forms of civil transportation
* All usable water from all sources
* Health resources drugs, biological products, medical devices, materials, facilities, health supplies, services and equipment
* Forced labor ( or induction as the executive order delicately refers to military conscription)
Moreover, federal officials would issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources. Each government bureaucracy shall act as necessary and appropriate. To be sure, much of this language has appeared in national security executive orders that previous presidents have issued periodically since the beginning of the Cold War.
But more than previous national security executive orders, Obamas 13603 seems to describe a potentially totalitarian regime obsessed with control over everything. Obamas executive order makes no effort to justify the destruction of liberty, no effort to explain how amassing totalitarian control would enable government to deal effectively with cyber sabotage, suicide bombings, chemical warfare, nuclear missiles or other possible threats. Its quite likely there would be greater difficulty responding to threats, since totalitarian regimes suffer from economic chaos, colossal waste, massive corruption and bureaucratic infighting that are inevitable consequences of extreme centralization. Such problems plagued fascist Italy, Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, communist China and other regimes. Totalitarian control would probably trigger resistance movements and underground networks like those that developed in Western Europe during the Nazi occupation. Totalitarian control could provoke more political turmoil than there was in the Vietnam War era of the 1960s. There would probably be a serious brain drain as talented people with critical skills escaped to freedom wherever that might be. Canada?
Theres nothing in executive order 13603 about upholding the Constitution or protecting civil liberties. source - Forbes NTEB News Desk | September 18, 2012 at 12:08 am | Tags: Executive Order 13603, Forbes, National Defense Resources Preparedness, obama, obamacare | Categories: Obama, Politics, US | URL: http://wp.me/p1kFP6-2Vs

What is the “NTEB News Desk”?
The kenyan does not want too much, does he? B-P
“Freewheeler” and “Ethylenediaminetetraacetate” could have been especially problematic.
Mods, help!! E’s gone missing!!
Laughing...thanks, I ndd that!
We should ride out to meet them.
Well, I won’t hold my breath waiting for the incompetent Boehner to ride out and greet Obama. My question is why the Rupublican House has done virtually NOTHING to stop this nonsense.
. . .My question is why the Republican House has done virtually NOTHING to stop this nonsense?
The NTEB is a web site
One of his “promises” was that he would “fundamentally” change America.
That is what he is doing... multiplying the Executive Orders.
Could that possibly be a new fuel?
I think the brizilians are running their cars on alcohol.
I think they have a choice to run them on gas or alcohol.
I think H Ford originally wanted to run Fords on alcohol.
I just saw the link that said YES.
I copied and pasted this story and sent it to my C man, Saxby & Chambliss, Rubio, (I don’t know how many ) plus my face book wall.
I saw others had it also.
I hope everyone plans to copy paste and put a message there for each Congressman, senator, and facebook .
Forbes said it.
I copy the whole thing and then call innthe morning
let me see the phone # I’m sorry, I had it posted on my desktop.
