The definition of terms section at the end of the order gives one the picture. No question that it means to impliment martial law against the civilian populace, and the comandeering of private transportation of every kind:
“Sec. 801. Definitions. In addition to the definitions in section 702 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2152, the following definitions apply throughout this order:
(a) “Civil transportation” includes movement of persons and property by all modes of transportation in interstate, intrastate, or foreign commerce within the United States, its territories and possessions, and the District of Columbia, and related public storage and warehousing, ports, services, equipment and facilities, such as transportation carrier shop and repair facilities. “Civil transportation” also shall include direction, control, and coordination of civil transportation capacity regardless of ownership. “Civil transportation” shall not include transportation owned or controlled by the Department of Defense, use of petroleum and gas pipelines, and coal slurry pipelines used only to supply energy production facilities directly.”
I had the thought that the “preservation of the nations industrial base,” being the trigger for this order, would somehow involve the larger Unions who now support Obama, and who would act to impliment this order as agents of Homeland Security.The TSA would also be involved.
This executive order reads like something from the pre Civil War era.
Appears on first look to be the initiation of a command economy
with Obama and his posse doing the commanding.
“War warning? “
That was my initial thought...preparing for attack.
He declared the War on Terror OVER, except for INTERNALLY, where we have people who oppose this Socialist Ditatorship/Takeover of the USA, and the last couple of "Proclamations" are to stifle ALL DISSENT WITHIN, which includes NOT being able to speak out in opposition to The Messiah, and now, we are being told he has taken over all means of production, transportation, food, monetary system, etc., via his self-appointed Czars.
We need a military coup BADLY, although since he's planted the seeds of faggots/dykes over-running the former Duty-Honor-Country warriors of the past, it better be sooner rather than later, or it will be too late to have a Military with balls.
The very first people who will ‘silenced’ will be the people who have been instrumental in putting him in power...the Press.
Obama is a Stalinist. Anything of patriotism is meant to be broken and anihilated.
Thanks for the thread; thanks for the link here from another thread; thanks to all posters.
(from now until election day...DEFUND the regime)
Doesn’t pass the smell test. Ignore this creep. Please understand we must elect the right person or they could use what Obama has put in place instead of getting rid of it. Electing someone because they are better than Obama will not do it. You have to elect someone who really cares about our country. We will spiral down that Alice in Wonderland hole until we hit bottom unless we elect real people and get these people out.
Something like this was set by Clinton and Bush.

Bump for posterity
That’s not an EO. It’s legislation. It’s completing Obama’s dictatorship - if we let him.
If you take this Exectutive Order seriously, and you shuold, and lay it alongside the power of the Patriot Act, you have the makings of a totalitarian dictatorship. The awesome power herein vested with the cabinet secretaries is beyond frightening.
If the federal government can seize control, as is provided in this order, of food, energy, health care, transportation and construction resources literally at will and without the right of redress by citizens, the POTUS and his cabinet now will hold the power of life and death.
This executive order only sets up a platform for use of the Patriot Act to identify citizen threats to dictatorial control once declared. Think about the last 3+ years. Does anyone really trust Ojackass not to abuse the powers this EO grants him?
How can this EO possibly be constitutional even in a national emergency? The powers it confers would make our Constitutional Rights meaningless and Obama, no different than Hugo Chavez, can trump up any national emergency he wishes. It is stuff like this that gives me nightmares should Obama be re-elected. With this kind of power he could be dictator for life on a whim.
This is a stimulus bill under the guise of emergency management.
This is also a move to force the nationalization of the all first responder unions. Obama couldn’t get it done through Congress, so he’s doing it through executive fiat.
