Yes, Executine orders have the same lifespan of the pols term, unless they are not overturned. Bammy did in a lot of Bush's EPA rules for example.

For fun and education here is a site that lists all current and former EOs. Very entertaining but not for the faint of heart. Wnat you learn could give you a fit.... Have fun and happy reading.

“The formation of the Council of Governors was required by the Fiscal Year 2008 National Defense Authorization Act which stated, “The President shall establish a bipartisan Council of Governors to advise the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the White House Homeland Security Council on matters related to the National Guard and civil support missions.” (NDAA FY2008, Sec 1822)”

Does this remind anyone of Licoln’s War Board, which evolved into the General Staff? But we whave a General Staff. Why set up another one, unless the existing one won’t do what is going to be asked of the new one?

Are you certain about that ..??

I believe any EO stands forever, unless the next President gets rid of it.

Bush also got rid of a lot of the “bombs” which the Clintons gleefully delighted in setting for the Bush admin, figuring Bush was too stupid to find them. Fortunately for America, Bush was not stupid. One week - they were all gone.

I remember reading about this. From our friends at CFR.

http://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/60094/stephen-e-flynn/the-neglected-home-front

But it’s no longer available, so I did a search and found it here.

The Neglected Home Front
By Stephen E. Flynn
http://zonecours.hec.ca/documents/H2005-P6-334483.Flynn,TheNeglectedHomeFront.doc

Page 6

The United States should roughly replicate the Federal Reserve model by creating a Federal Security Reserve System (FSRS) with a national board of governors, 10 regional Homeland Security Districts, and 92 local branches called Metropolitan Anti-Terrorism Committees. The objective of this system would be to develop self-funding mechanisms to more fully engage a broad cross-section of American society to protect the country’s critical foundations from the widespread disruption that would arise from a terrorist attack.

This opens up a whole new can of worms.

I don’t get how Obama and his hand-selected governors of 10 States are going to issue orders to the governors of the other 40 states? Because this sounds like the Feds trying to cloak their intended attempt to federalize the state militias and National Guards with the consensus of only 10 selected Governors?

There is no constitutional relationship between the governors of the several States and the executive branch of the federal government. To establish such a relationship under the force of law can have only one purpose, and it cannot be good. It is to subordinate the governors to the president. This is a compromising of the very structure of our federal republic.

The Left has been seeking to dissolve the States for years now and to relegate them to the status of mere administrative units of the federal government.

In so doing they render large parts of the Constitution moot. The Ninth and Tenth Amendments are already considered dead letters by the federal judiciary. The relatively modest and benign "Commerce Clause" has been distorted into a man-eating monster, a tail which wags the dog. Soon the power of the States to govern themselves will atrophy, strangled by the strings attached to federal funds.

I'm not clairvoyant, or privy to secret information. Just observe the trends and follow them through to obvious conclusions.

Wow how many executive orders has this guy signed in past year? Seems like in addition to travel, and TV airtime, he is setting another record. I don’t recall so many from Bush or even Clinton. Like many, this one particularly concerns me.

Mesta, This looks serious but my understanding is much limited on the impact this could make, especially with comments made on this thread..are they indeed right? or some?

What I am understanding is it can take away the states rights..yet he’s been doing this right along so it won’ be stopped no matter if it breaks the constitution...our constitution isn’t carrying any weight right now.

Great point!,,,

IMHO there is no way in hell this can be enforced in

all states,,,

Maybe in the North and some places on the West coast,,,

The 60’s riots list would be close,,,

Lets do the math,,,

I'll need some extra fingers,,,

Now,,,There are about 90,000,000 gun owners in the USofA,,,

There is only about 3,000,000 members of the US Military and

LEO’s in the US,,,

Much of the military is scattered around the world,,,

From what I've read only about 25-30% of the Military would

follow any orders to kill citizens or take away guns/etc.,,,

The very best thing for ALL to do is stock our homes with

whatever is needed to just “Fort-Up” for 2-3 months,,,

O’Bammy’s Mau Mau squad won't last very long in

Red States...Ya’ll keep yer powder dry...GOD Bless...;0)
