Government takeover of the Land of the Free?
Canada Free Press ^ | March 18, 2012 | Judi McLeod

Posted on 03/18/2012 1:30:34 PM PDT by hildy123

...Early Sunday morning and the AWOL mainstream media has missed the proverbial boat on the latest Executive Order signed Friday by President Barack Hussein Obama.

Executive Order “National Defense Resources Preparedness”, in effect nationalizes all the energy, food and water currently existing on American soil.

The EO is cunningly covered under the auspices of Peace Time Martial Law at the discretion of one man.

Although now posted on the Drudge Report, at the time of this writing, only scant reportage on the Web about the signing away of liberty and individual rights.

The most divisive president in history is preparing for the Second Civil War.

Like OUR military (who the Cretin-in-Chief) has screwed in A-stan, and not called soldiers while calling the slut, while simultaneously trying to screw them out of their retirement and medical benefits ...will actually obey this slug.

Sorry, folks, but if that septic piece of Obamastuff would try this, methinks our soldiers - remembering their oath to defend the Constitution (not the t*rd in the White House) against all enemies, foreign and liberal - would surround the White House...not us.

I agree w/you my friend. What obombo doesn’t realize is that our constitution requires our military to defend it, not who happens to be president at the time. Also, congress would intervene and override his e.o.

I did read that article and see that this is just extending policies that have been in place for a long time.

However, we’ve never had a communist as POTUS before. That is the problem.

And which, if any, of our candidates will publicly promise to revoke a significant number of these 11,000+ “Executive Orders”?

Will any of them list the EO’s they would expunge from our republic?

I am tired of this flaccid campaign, too little or nothing of substance is being said by the candidates.

Newt comes closest, but even he is too timid so as to not be labeled as “Radical” and/or “Extreme”.

I am tired of the niggardly effort being made to revive our republic, it’s time for some one to man-up and make a true stand.

They can start by announcing their VP choices now, not later.

Hot air “pretty much breaks everything down” except this comment on the Hot Air article, which notes additional new definitions in Section 801:

>>>>”All these EOs are updates to the Defense Production Act of 1950, right?

The DPA was used during the Korean War to establish a large defense mobilization infrastructure and bureaucracy. Under the authority of the Act, President Harry S. Truman established the Office of Defense Mobilization, instituted wage and price controls, strictly regulated production in heavy industries such as steel and mining, and ordered the disperal(sic) of wartime manufacturing plans across the nation.[3]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_Production_Act
PART VIII – GENERAL PROVISIONS

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.

(b) “Energy” means all forms of energy including petroleum, gas (both natural and manufactured), electricity, solid fuels (including all forms of coal, coke, coal chemicals, coal liquification, and coal gasification), solar, wind, other types of renewable energy, atomic energy, and the production, conservation, use, control, and distribution (including pipelines) of all of these forms of energy.

(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).

My blood pressure is rising at the arrogance of this man. However, before it boils over, I want to see independent confirmation from at least one other source.

Zero is, without a doubt, the most corrupt, dictatorial tyrant we have ever seen and, increasingly, it is beginning to appear that the only way we will extricate him from the WH will be through a civil action. Going to the ballot box in November just won't cut it!!

I think it might be more accurate to say he’s inciting a second civil war. He better be careful what he wishes for.

A civil war conducted by WHOM!!?? What I see in America is people who have NO passion for freedom, NO passion for liberty and are willing to take whatever is handed out to them as long as they don’t miss the latest episode of American Idol or Survivor!!

Our rights, freedoms and liberties have been slowly chipped away from us over the past several decades and, from those of us who OWN this government, nary a peep!!

So, give me a scenario that will bring people other than a liberal rent-a-mob to the streets to make zero back down.

I’ll wait!

I don't think you have been keeping up with current events. Obama has shredded the Constitution and been allowed to get away with it. He has increasingly been bypassing Congress to "rule" by EO and the Congress is full of so many political cowards that NONE of them are willing to challenge him.

Take off your rose-colored glasses and see this country the way it REALLY is, NOT the way we THINK it is SUPPOSED to be!!!

Along as the food stamps, unemployment, and welfare continues his army will be loyal. Over half of Americans pay no income tax. Why because to change this would loose a huge part of his army. But once this dictator become permanent he will just cut the freeloaders off and hopefully he will not institute the gas chambers. Easy to round them up, all the data he needs is now obtainable. They he will round up all the gun owners and firing squads. (Started be a tongue in cheek but I scared myself)

Obama has shredded the Constitution and been allowed to get away with it. He has increasingly been bypassing Congress to "rule" by EO and the Congress is full of so many political cowards that NONE of them are willing to challenge him.

The Founding Fathers did not envision a time when a corrupt congress and house would back a corrupt president and be supported by a corrupt judiciary and press.

The root cause of this destruction of the Republic and the Constitution is the powerful two party political system.

We now have people in positions of power throughout the government and the press who hold their first allegiance to the Democratis party rather than to the United States of America. in fact with many allegiance to the country and the constitution is far down the list or nonexistant.

As a corallary, one of the reasons the Republican party does not currently muster the kind of political power as the democrats is that a good part of people who comprise the Republican base are solid patriots who hold their allegiance to the nation and the constitution first and foremost. Their allegiance to the party is often far down the list after family, country, religion, ethics, morality, etc., etc. For many there really is no party allegiance - the republicans are usually just the lesser evil of two bad choices.

The two party political system, and specifically the democrat party, is destroying America and there is no remedy on the horizon. In fact, in any attack on the system, hard core Republicans fight reform just as hard as do democrats.

The Founding Fathers did not envision a time when a corrupt congress and house would back a corrupt president and be supported by a corrupt judiciary and press.

Actually, they did. Central to their entire scope of government was the notion of the balance of power. The balance of power extends throughout the Constitution and was the basis for the south to secede from the union when they disagreed with the president's decision to free the slaves. In turn, the north also used the balance of power to force the south back into the union.

In addition, the whole issue of the Second Amendment is also about the balance of power. The people were allowed to keep and maintain weapons as a means of maintaining the balance of power between themselves and a powerful, abusive central government.

Where the failure of the Founding Fathers enters into the picture is their failure to predict or envision the political and moral cowards who have taken control of the government. To be sure, the Democrats are bullys who do not hesitate to issue epithets and sound bites that d@mn conservatives. But, the Republicans, as the representatives of conservative values, lack both the courage and moral conviction to stand up for America, the Constitution, and the values that conservatives espouse.

And this comment:

Ed, I think you could have done some more research before posting this “all clear.” Specifically, look at the language change in Section 201, part b.

It now says:

(b) The Secretary of each agency delegated authority under subsection (a) of this section (resource departments) shall plan for and issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources and establish standards and procedures by which the authority shall be used to promote the national defense, under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.

The 1994 document you linked to says nothing of “non-emergency” conditions. This is a broad and frightening expansion of the Executive Branch’s power to ration food, energy, health care, water, and “all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials” whenever the president deems it necessary, under both emergency and non-emergency conditions. What non-emergency conditions would merit such rationing? Emergency political conditions, that’s what.

This is a stunning grab for power over the nation’s resources and its people’s liberties.

Wake up, Ed. Really. Wake up.

Am waiting also. Cancel the NCAA basketball tournament and maybe a few million will protest in the streets, that I believe is more likely.

Prove this Fraud presented a forged document as his birth certificate, a forged selective service registration, and a bogus social security number registered in CT -start impeachment and I guarantee millions and millions of his sycophants take to the streets and riot.

There will be no civil war, not even an attempted overthrow of the government when it takes our liberties.

We are going to get exactly what we deserve and it’s going to be ugly folks.
