Obama signs new Executive Order expanding Homeland Security mission in the U.S.
Examiner ^ | 10/26/12 | Kenneth Schortgen Jr

Posted on 10/27/2012 9:18:46 PM PDT by Nachum

On Oct. 26, President Obama signed a new Executive Order which expands the role and scope of Homeland Security in states and areas across the country. This order, which establishes a new Security Partnership Council, will have far reaching effects in the overall mission of Homeland Security, and for state and local areas that interact with the Federal agency.

Economically, the Establishing the White House Homeland Security Partnership Council Executive Order will increase funding and resources to state and local governments to fulfill Homeland Security programs and doctrines, as well as increase Federal oversight in the implementation of directives tied to the agencies mission.

I think that is the extent of action this President can take on his own; pick up a pen and sign an Executive Order. I would like to know who’s really thinking these EO’s up, developing them, and writing them. Who is the puppet master? VJ?

The purpose of this order is to maximize the Federal Government's ability to develop local partnerships in the United States to support homeland security priorities.

ie) here is our money, and we will tell you what to do.

At what point does this nation stop being a republic and union of States with sovereign powers and turns into something else?

Most of Obama's crap comes from the Center for American Progress (CAP).

They wrote the health care bill, anyway.

“In a little more than a decade, the Department of Homeland Security, in conjunction with its underlying and partnering Federal agencies, have infiltrated nearly every community in America.

“This new Executive Order, which expands the scope of the agency and gives it greater power in state and local partnerships, will mean greater loss of freedoms and liberties to both the states and citizens - as the Federal government imposes greater authority - over what should remain state sovereignty scope and missions.”

Thanks, Nachum.

938 from Obama in less than four years.

I heard a radio host talk about the numbers going back to Nixon.

Obama has them all (combined) beat. But, I have not seen the numbers.

CAP was originally called the American Majority Institute and was spawned by Morton Halperin & John Podesta. Morton Halperin has actually called for the abolishment of US intelligence services, and has been an apologist for the PLO. They are red daiper doper babies.

CAP is partially funded by George Soros. Its sister organization is American Progress Action Fund.

One of the first pet projects was to try to knock rush Limbaugh off of armed Forces radio, or at least reduce the amount of time he was aired.

One of their other pet projects [and that of French and German socialists] is a global tax [see the keyword Toobintax], to fund the UN so it can field an real army.

Note Benghazi's infamous liar Susan Rice is also associated with the group:

* Robert Rubin, Clinton’s Treasury Secretary; [attended CAP's initital conference] * William Perry,  Clinton’s Defense Secretary;  [attended CAP's initital conference] * Sandy Berger, Clinton’s National Security Adviser;  [attended CAP's initital conference] * Richard Holbrooke  a Clinton-era Assistant Secretary of State; [attended CAP's initital conference] * Susan Rice, a Clinton-era Assistant Secretary of State; [attended CAP's initital conference] * Rodney Slater, Clinton’s Transportation Secretary [attended CAP's initital conference] * Carol Browner, Clinton’s EPA administrator, who serves on the center’s  board of directors.”  [and who attended CAP's initital conference]

OCTOBER 2003 : (CAP CONFERENCE ON "NATIONAL SECURITY" IS CO-ORGANIZED WITH THE AMERICAN PROSPECT & THE CENTURY FOUNDATION - See ATTENDEES FORMER CLINTON TREASURY SECRETARY ROBERT RUBIN {LINKED TO NEWS ANCHOR TOM BROKAW}, PERRY, BERGER, HOLBROOKE, SUSAN RICE {see SUDAN, SANDY BERGER, BENGHAZI LIBYA}, SLATER, H CLINTON, BROWNER; ALSO SEE MEDIA MATTERS aka MMA)

Remember this from ...

Singing Heil Obama in New Jersey
Eagle Forum ^ | October 2, 2009 | Phyllis Schlafly
Posted on Monday, October 12, 2009 1:35:24 AM by myknowledge

... Public schoolchildren are now forbidden to sing Christmas carols that mention the real meaning of Christmas (only songs like “Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer” are allowed), but in New Jersey, second-graders were taught to sing the spiritual “Jesus Loves the Little Children” in which Jesus’ name was replaced with Obama’s. They sang, “He said red, yellow, black, or white/All are equal in his sight/Barack Hussein Obama.”
Before Obama’s election, it was considered a political no-no for Republicans to use his middle name. Beginning with his inauguration in January, he and his followers use Hussein to glorify his Muslim heritage and connections.
The revised lyrics teach the kids that Obama will “make this country strong again.” The lyrics promote Obama’s Lilly Ledbetter law by including the line: “He said we must be fair today/Equal work means equal pay.”
Proving that this rewritten Jesus-song wasn’t an aberration, New Jersey second-graders were taught to sing a second Obama-personality-cult song to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic. Here are some of the lyrics: “Mr. President we honor you today!/For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say ‘hooray.’/Hooray, Mr. President! You’re number one!/Hooray Mr. President, we’re really proud of you!/So continue, Mr. President, we know you’ll do the trick/So here’s a hearty hip hooray, Hip, hip hooray!”
These songs were not spontaneous kiddie exuberance or extracurricular playground activity. The video makes clear that the teacher was methodically instructing the children, using one talented second-grader to demonstrate exactly how to sing the songs, and coaching students who forgot the words.
The teacher also led the children in giving a sort of Heil Obama salute. On cue, they outstretched their right hands, accentuating their community of action in praising Obama.
The New Jersey songs were first taught to the children at B. Bernice Young Elementary School in February to celebrate Black History Month, and then videotaped in June as part of a Father’s Day tribute to Barack Obama. Only after the video was later posted on the internet did parents learn about it.
Who’s responsible for this outrage? The teacher has retired with full pension and benefits, and the principal, Dr. Denise King, defended the controversial song, making no apologies.
Parents quoted the principal as saying she would allow the performance again if she could. King touted her trip to Obama’s Inauguration in the school yearbook along with Obama campaign slogans and pictures she took in Washington on January 20, and she has posted pictures of Obama in the school’s hallways.
Superintendent Christopher Manno issued a written statement that the taping and its distribution were unauthorized, but failed to say whether the singing lesson was approved. State Education Commissioner Lucille Davy directed the superintendent to review this matter but declined to say what the review will cover or if any action would be taken.
Some shocked comments from parents included: “I can’t believe it’s our school. We don’t want to praise this guy like he’s a god or an idol or a king.” “I felt this was reminiscent of 1930s Germany, and the indoctrination of children to worship their leader.”
RNC Chair Michael Steele said: “This is the type of propaganda you would see in Stalin’s Russia or Kim Jong Il’s North Korea.”
A poster for the book “I Am Barack Obama” by activist Charisse Carney-Nunes can be seen near the chanting second-graders.
The songs’ lyrics sound like a follow-up of the “I pledge” video shown in Utah in which kids were invited to pledge to support all sorts of leftwing goals such as national health care. Specific legislative pledges culminated in pledges “to be a servant to our President” and “to be of service to Barack Obama.”
The New Jersey songs are further proof of Obama’s plan to indoctrinate schoolchildren, which was evident in Education Secretary Arne Duncan’s instructions to all school principals to use the “historic moment” of Obama’s September 8 speech to all schoolchildren as a tool to “inspire” them and teach them to be cheerleaders for Obama.

Homeland Security (with it’s nazi sounding name) now has about the same number of people as the USMC. And they have TWICE the budget of the USMC.

And they are aimed squarely at us.

When they take over the Union, maybe. He seems to be building some kind of federal police force.

Is he expecting to win or lose the election? Why this kind of EO now?

Can his EO's be overturned if he loses the election? If not, can Romney write EO's superseding Obama's EO's?

It absolutely does! This menace can not be reelected...he just cannot be reelected.

He'll be an evil menace if he does not get reelected. Imagine what he would be if elected.

If he isn't reelected, and the EO is not squashed or superseded, it can always be used by the next stealth far left, statist president.

The Department of Homeland Security should be disbanded immediately, before they find some brown shirts lying around to try on.

I was naively all for the establishment of the DHS after 9/11, when Bush had the agency directed to genuine Islamic terrorist threats abroad and at home.  During the Usurper Administration, I saw a foreign born Muslim Bolshevik direct the attention of DHS towards American patriots in politically motivated persecution.  I have finally woken up to the imminent danger of the agency known as the Department of Homeland Security.

Someone sent me a list of them a while back. He is literally taking over America. The Obama voters don’t seem to have any idea that they will be enslaved like the rest of us and just think of that North Korean loyal officer that was murdered because the government there said he was drunk and carousing during the mourning period of the old leader. They won’t escape either. It’s sad they don’t read history.

And how we burned in the camps later, thinking:  What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?  Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?  The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!

Actually, I believe that you (and I) may not be the primary targets. I believe the primary targets may be their own constituents.

What dictator would want to rule a nation of parasites?

I think there may be a "pivot" designed into the grand scheme of things. The politicians themselves would simply shift to fit the remaining demographic after the big purge.

DISCLAIMER: I've been known to be wrong on more than one occasion.
