Some of you missed it!
This allows Obama & Company to setup “friends” as defense contractors, food suppliers, manufacturers through the “loans and grants”.
If they think most armor manufacturers are run by conservatives or loyal Americans, they will create new armor manufacturers (using taxpayer money) that are operated by radical socialists. Guess who is going to have the lowest costs?
This is the means to create companies that produce food, energy, defense, etc which are loyal to the socialist cause and will ensure those who hold power are protected, fed and comfortable.
This is a way of saying, “If I declare a national emergency, I get to take over completely and there’s nothing anyone can do to sue me or anyone else in the government for any losses they may incur as a result of my actions.”
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping?
Here’s a question for everyone.
If the Constitution of the United States can be looked at as a contract between the several states and the peoples they represent so as to form a unifying government aka the Federal Government. Then if the Constitution is set aside for whatever reason isn’t that contract then null and void?
And if it is null and void then any actions the Federal government takes at that point are what? Illegal? Piratical? Tyrannical?
In any case I can see the implementation of an executive order of this type as being in that vein. I just hope that this is another one of those boiler-plate just-in-case things like all of the thousands of “War Plans” the DOD comes up with like the invasion of Penguins from the Falklands on the shores of Florida, (Little tongue in cheek there).
Look at all the use of the word during “peacetime.” It is one thing to plan the logistics for emergencies, but now it includes access to resources and people in ‘peacetime.’
So this is not just a “war warning.” Recall 0bama said last fall if congress would not cooperate...he would do things by executive order. This is what he was talking about. He has essentially found a way to do it and this EO sets the stage and essentially orders the acquisition of people and resources, even without a direct threat.

Remember the BRAC, and "right-sizing" the military, and Les Aspin's review of two-front war capabilities?
Not to mention the wholesale, literal, evisceration of our industrial capabilities by sending them to China including ALL our latest trade secrets?
And Loral helping China with their ICBMs?
China, being the subhuman scum that they are, used this not merely to get rich; but to spread the nuclear technology to as many rogue states as they could, eh?
PING for the Gardening List...
Does anybody recognize some of this language from the cynically mis-named (and stealth-passed) “Food Safety Act” (S510 from last December)??
[From the Executive Order]
(c) “Farm equipment” means equipment, machinery, and repair parts manufactured for use on farms in connection with the production or preparation for market use of food resources.
(d) “Fertilizer” means any product or combination of products that contain one or more of the elements nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium for use as a plant nutrient.
(e) “Food resources” means all commodities and products, (simple, mixed, or compound), or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption. “Food resources” also means potable water packaged in commercially marketable containers, all starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, seed, cotton, hemp, and flax fiber, but does not mean any such material after it loses its identity as an agricultural commodity or agricultural product.
(f) “Food resource facilities” means plants, machinery, vehicles (including on farm), and other facilities required for the production, processing, distribution, and storage (including cold storage) of food resources, and for the domestic distribution of farm equipment and fertilizer (excluding transportation thereof).
(g) “Functions” include powers, duties, authority, responsibilities, and discretion.
Making sure you heard about this.
Kudos and props to the original poster. What a find.
I just read the original post, and the comments, twice through now. This could very well be It. The mechanism is now in place, by way of an EO, for the Kenyan to launch a takeover at a time of his choosing.
Old thread posted about Clinton’s version of this EO.
Setting up to cancel elections in November!
