Skip to comments.Weekly Enewsletter: An Executive Order You Should Know About
Posted on 06/15/2012 9:29:39 PM PDT by manic4organic
With all that is going in Washington these days some things dont make the news the way they should. Fourteen days ago President Obama issued an Executive Order that you should know about. This order gives an unprecedented level of authority to the President and the federal government to take over all the fundamental parts of our economy - in the name of national security - in times of national emergency.
This means all of our water resources, construction services and materials (steel, concrete, etc.), our civil transportation system, food and health resources, our energy supplies including oil and natural gas even farm equipment can be taken over by the President and his cabinet secretaries. The Government can also draft U.S. citizens into the military and force U.S. citizens to fulfill "labor requirements" for the purposes of "national defense." There is not even any Congressional oversight, only briefings are required.
By issuing this as an Executive Order the President puts the federal government above the law, which, in a democracy, is never supposed to happen.
As President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, he has the Constitutional authority to issue executive orders. And while similar orders have been made before by presidents from Eisenhower and Reagan to Clinton and George Bush it has never been done to this extent.
It is still unclear why this order was signed now, and what the consequences are for our nation especially during times of peace. This type of Martial Law imposes a government takeover on U.S. citizens that is typically reserved for national emergencies, not in a time of relative peace.
I want you to know I am following this very closely. If you would like to read the order for yourself please click here.

What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
The difference being with Bambi's EO is that ALL control can occur during peacetime for ANY reason. It doesn't take a war, or national emergency, or even a regional emergency...just whatever the current presidents says. Huge difference. This should be one of the first overturned EO's by president Rommney - doubt that will occur since he's such a political player.
“National Security” - the last refuge of a high-ranking political scoundrel.
it is our duty to disobey unconstitutional actions by our government leaders and show that they are not above the law.
people will die because of this, and i can only hope, in the end, freedom prevails, because the will of the people is split about 50-50.
This has been posted and discussed ad nauseum on FR.
Some get it ...some don’t.
In light of yesterday’s announcement though...
Go on I dare you or anyone else to tell these kids(useful idiots) that what happened was criminal. That the President can’t do what he just did yesterday!
The box now in the middle of the room with the beautiful immigration bow on it...is a community agitator trap for Martial Law.
Oh..and somewhere in that order is the discussion of the DHS definition of ‘extremist’ and there is that minor order signed back on Dec. 31st/Jan. 1st about being able to detain citizens indefinately and even being able to ship them abroad to do it...
