Posted on 05/09/2013 2:42:29 PM PDT by ColdOne
The first executive order will launch competitions for three Manufacturing Innovation Institutes, partnerships focused on developing manufacturing technologies, and will call on Congress to set aside $1 billion for the creation of 15 such institutes modeled off a pilot program in Youngstown, Ohio.
The second executive order will require that all new government data be available in open, machine-readable formats to help technology entrepreneurs and researchers in their work.

A trillion sounds better.
Well, nothing could go wrong with THAT.
Do I really need a /sarc?
This sounds as workable as Obama’s “Green Jobs Initiative.”
Apparently the game is to throw money at cronies and then walk away.
>> call on Congress to set aside $1 billion
We don’t *have* a billion lying around. Does the term “sequester” mean anything to you, blue-lipped kenyan jerk?
Manufacturing in our past was the best in the world. Why is there a need for an "innovation institute"? We just need to return to what we use to do best.
He literally cannot do this. He is taking control from Congress to do things that are completely outside of his authority.
More government meddling. When will this cretin in the White House learn to let the free market work? NEVER, I guess.
Ever Heard this one, O`Bozo, "Wish in one hand, (defecate) in the other, guess which full fills first?"
obama the all-wise, all-knowing businessman
Executive Order — Making Open and Machine Readable the New Default for Government Information
- - - - - - -
MAKING OPEN AND MACHINE READABLE THE NEW DEFAULT
FOR GOVERNMENT INFORMATION
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. General Principles. Openness in government strengthens our democracy, promotes the delivery of efficient and effective services to the public, and contributes to economic growth. As one vital benefit of open government, making information resources easy to find, accessible, and usable can fuel entrepreneurship, innovation, and scientific discovery that improves Americans’ lives and contributes significantly to job creation.
Decades ago, the U.S. Government made both weather data and the Global Positioning System freely available. Since that time, American entrepreneurs and innovators have utilized these resources to create navigation systems, weather newscasts and warning systems, location-based applications, precision farming tools, and much more, improving Americans’ lives in countless ways and leading to economic growth and job creation. In recent years, thousands of Government data resources across fields such as health and medicine, education, energy, public safety, global development, and finance have been posted in machine-readable form for free public use on Data.gov. Entrepreneurs and innovators have continued to develop a vast range of useful new products and businesses using these public information resources, creating good jobs in the process.
To promote continued job growth, Government efficiency, and the social good that can be gained from opening Government data to the public, the default state of new and modernized Government information resources shall be open and machine readable. Government information shall be managed as an asset throughout its life cycle to promote interoperability and openness, and, wherever possible and legally permissible, to ensure that data are released to the public in ways that make the data easy to find, accessible, and usable. In making this the new default state, executive departments and agencies (agencies) shall ensure that they safeguard individual privacy, confidentiality, and national security.
Sec. 2. Open Data Policy. (a) The Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in consultation with the Chief Information Officer (CIO), Chief Technology Officer (CTO), and Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), shall issue an Open Data Policy to advance the
management of Government information as an asset, consistent with my memorandum of January 21, 2009 (Transparency and Open Government), OMB Memorandum M-10-06 (Open Government Directive), OMB and National Archives and Records Administration Memorandum M-12-18 (Managing Government Records Directive), the Office of Science and Technology Policy Memorandum of February 22, 2013 (Increasing Access to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research), and the CIO’s strategy entitled “Digital Government: Building a 21st Century Platform to Better Serve the American People.” The Open Data Policy shall be updated as needed.
(b) Agencies shall implement the requirements of the Open Data Policy and shall adhere to the deadlines for specific actions specified therein. When implementing the Open Data Policy, agencies shall incorporate a full analysis of privacy, confidentiality, and security risks into each stage of the information lifecycle to identify information that should not be released. These review processes should be overseen by the senior agency official for privacy. It is vital that agencies not release information if doing so would violate any law or policy, or jeopardize privacy, confidentiality, or national security.
Sec. 3. Implementation of the Open Data Policy. To facilitate effective Government-wide implementation of the Open Data Policy, I direct the following:
(a) Within 30 days of the issuance of the Open Data Policy, the CIO and CTO shall publish an open online repository of tools and best practices to assist agencies in integrating the Open Data Policy into their operations in furtherance of their missions. The CIO and CTO shall regularly update this online repository as needed to ensure it remains a resource to facilitate the adoption of open data practices.
(b) Within 90 days of the issuance of the Open Data Policy, the Administrator for Federal Procurement Policy, Controller of the Office of Federal Financial Management, CIO, and Administrator of OIRA shall work with the Chief Acquisition Officers Council, Chief Financial Officers Council, Chief Information Officers Council, and Federal Records Council to identify and initiate implementation of measures to support the integration of the Open Data Policy requirements into Federal acquisition and grant-making processes. Such efforts may include developing sample requirements language, grant and contract language, and workforce tools for agency acquisition, grant, and information management and technology professionals.
(c) Within 90 days of the date of this order, the Chief Performance Officer (CPO) shall work with the President’s Management Council to establish a Cross-Agency Priority (CAP) Goal to track implementation of the Open Data Policy. The CPO shall work with agencies to set incremental performance goals, ensuring they have metrics and milestones in place to monitor advancement toward the CAP Goal. Progress on these goals shall be analyzed and reviewed by agency leadership, pursuant to the GPRA Modernization Act of 2010 (Public Law 111-352).
(d) Within 180 days of the date of this order, agencies shall report progress on the implementation of the CAP Goal to the CPO. Thereafter, agencies shall report progress quarterly, and as appropriate.
Sec. 4. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:
(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department, agency, or the head thereof; or
(ii) the functions of the Director of OMB relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.
(b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.
(c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
(d) Nothing in this order shall compel or authorize the disclosure of privileged information, law enforcement information, national security information, personal information, or information the disclosure of which is prohibited by law.
(e) Independent agencies are requested to adhere to this order.
Hope Republicans see Obama’s Billion and raise him to 5 Billion. We got to start making things here.
Wonder if this includes the technology that produced his fake birth certificate?
I have a great idea! Why don’t we just let manufacturers of products decide for themselves on how to run their respective industries?
How about that mush mouth making the speech? If I had to listen to that I would be looking for something to throw.
“...and will call on Congress to set aside $1 billion for the creation of 15 such institutes...”
Comrade Lenin... uh... sorry - I meant president hussein - really loves to pour hard-earned taxpayer dough down the crapper, doesn’t he....
Meanwhile, he’s downsizing the Marine Corps and kicking out airmen caught with... gasp! - Playboy magazines - even as China lays claim to the Spratleys/Paracels and occupies sites in northern India.
Is there anyone else who’s experiencing a growing sense of alarm over the possibilities of next four years?
Myself, I don’t think it could possibly be more clear that this *ssclown hates America and is ultimately going to destroy the whole frickin’ nation.
Thank you Obama voters.
Is that supposed to be more efficient than manufacturing with assembly lines?
Another EO and more money to siphon off into his wallet.
He has no Constitutional or statutory authority to do this, Whether he can do it or not remains to be seen and is up to the Republicans in Congress so he probably can, in fact, do it.
more government and tyranical executive orders is not what is needed to “help” manufacturing. what is needed is to get the government out of the way like for example eliminate most of the hundreds of thousands of pages of government regulations crippling businesses and reduce taxes ( U.S. corp tax rate is the highest in the world for example). Eliminating the EPA and environmental laws alone would allow energy companies and manufacturing to explode3 in growth as they can provide cheap energy to manufacturers
how is that gov meddling in education going with the public schools and how most are like prisons now where a kid can't draw a picture of a gun without getting in trouble with these school commies. TSA, EPA,IRS, gov housing ( hell on Earth what is so good about gov ?
did the 2700 pages of obamacare help healthcare. hope you like the IRS now looking at your healtcare
You're choking on talking points.
If I come into your store and steal $1000 from you; only to return later on and buy $1000 worth of merchandise, how much better off are you?
Can't you see that's what you're recommending?
Let's stop here and think for a second. Does "All government data to be available in open, machine-readable formats" include our Medical Records under Obama-Care?
Inquiring minds want to know!!
more government doesn't work: it hurts the economy and takes away our individual right . yes government growing does that . we need less government less laws and less executive orders.you people are individuals and you are for government taking away your individual rights. as if some gov goon can better take care of you and what you want much less the million of transactions of the free market that are done by million of business experts with their OWN money not some gov grant as in socialism(government running things)
When is enough government enough? there is too much gov.America in the 1800's had practically no gov and that's when it grew faster than any country
socialism doesn't work you big eared doofus Obama, ok get it moron?
$1 Billion = 8 hours of deficit spending at the current rate.
I'm recommending we start making things here instead of importing them and bankrupting our economy. Romney said we have 24,000,000 people looking for work. The GOP is in need of solving this because these votes are going to the Dems. As for the government seeding the ground, call it socialism, or call it filling a vacuum, I call it jobs.
Why not go whole hog an make it a Brazillian dollars.
It’s play money now anyway, so let’s piss it away on another Obama scheme. His others have worked out so well.
Cut off his money boehner.
We should just divert all resources to the government, and make for ourselves a DMV world.
Wow! Another multi-billion dollar taxpayer-funded government jobs program! Who woulda thunk?
-— Myself, I dont think it could possibly be more clear that this *ssclown hates America and is ultimately going to destroy the whole frickin nation. -—
When he was elected, I predicted a 10 year, Carter-level, recession. It appears that I was optimistic.
Between socialized medicine and undefended borders, we may never come out of this.
This is what fundamental transformation looks like.
—— As for the government seeding the ground, call it socialism, or call it filling a vacuum, I call it jobs -——
So why not take another $1 trillion away from productive working people, businessmen, and business owners, and give it to the government?
This will destroy private sector jobs, jobs that are created by the choices of freely trading individuals, and create government jobs, jobs that are demanded by bureaucrats serving political demands.
How does this “seed the ground” for anything except more bureaucracy?
Besides, we tried this already with the Stimulus.
To make it easier for the Chinese to steal.
I think I might sense a pattern here:
1) Medical records under next-gen to all be using the same type database
2) School records under InBloom to be all using the same type database
3) FAA under its own next-gen to consolidate records under same type database
Now buissnesses required to have records under a database .Hmmmmm
C'mon man private industry has been creating jobs in China not here. That is not helping Romney's 24,000,000 looking for jobs. Private industry will create jobs 'in the long run'. In the long run we will all be dead. The long run ends next pay day.
Government seed money started the computer industry and the spin offs from the space program are still paying dividends. Don't turn your nose up on anything that will create jobs here. It's the only offer on the table.
” Manufacturing with executive orders...
Is that supposed to be more efficient than manufacturing with assembly lines? “
According to the Muslim Marxist, yes!
(means we charge off another billion in bad debt)
” Its play money now anyway, so lets piss it away on another Obama scheme. His others have worked out so well.”
100% have failed, using OUR money.
—— It’s the only offer on the table. ——
If the only offer on the table is to make things worse, by allowing the government to steal even more resources from working people, then no thanks.
You can’t get much better than 100% can you?
Nope, never in American history.
