Skip to comments.New Executive Order: “Obama Has Just Given Himself the Authority to Seize Your Assets”
Posted on 03/19/2014 10:35:24 PM PDT by Kartographer
On Monday the U.S. government took steps to seize the US-based assets of Russian lawmakers and anyone else that the US government deemed complicit in supporting the Crimean secession movement.
Weve seen the U.S. government do this in countless cases surrounding drug and financial crimes, and sometimes even against foreign leaders like Saddam Hussein and Manuel Noriega.
What makes this particular instance so unprecedented and terrifying is that President Obama went so far as to issue a new Executive Order to give himself the authorization to do so, because the laws of the United States are such that our government is not allowed to simply take someones bank assets, home or business without due process.
Heres the kicker.
The new Executive Order doesnt just apply to just Russians or foreigners. It gets blanket coverage, so even American citizens could now face asset forfeiture if their actions are deemed to be contributing to the situation in the Ukraine.

Go ahead - what do I care? I didn't have anything to do with Ukraine.
My property and I are safe.
So, the next executive order will sanction anyone who threatens...whatever...
how about “US national security”
like, anyone who they can associate with the Tea Party or even remarks critical of the WH?
the EO is very broad and totally dependent on decisionmaking by obama and his agencies
You think you and your property are safe?
Go on mass media and criticize the government
moose and squirrel not make joke about govt maybe take your money
Bullies never go after anyone bigger and stronger than they are, they always go after the weak and unprotected.
"Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out - Because I was not a Jew." etc.
Of course this is preposterous... but which Champion of the Right will protest?
Rand Paul, perhaps?
Democrat: If the Constitution doesn't say specifically what we cannot do,
then it's Constitutional.
Impeach the Homosexual, Pot smoking, Cocaine snorting bastard.
Will the UAW end up with this loot as they did with the auto confiscation bonds?
I got your sarcasm.:)
Is it time for the torches and pitchforks?
Remember: the Supreme Court ruled the government could prohibit behavior which reduced prohibited behavior. Ergo, you are contributing to the situation in Ukraine by not contributing to the situation in Ukraine.
I feel so guilty!
If you ever even accidentally clicked on a link that would download a pirated movie, that's a $250,000 fine and ten years in prison. Doesn't matter if you actually downloaded it or not. The NSA has been collecting all that data. They know every single online or phone "crime" you have committed.
They haven't been collecting all that data for nothing.
