Obama Gives Himself Control of all Communication Systems in America
World Truth ^ | July 6, 2013 | Staff

Posted on 07/06/2013 6:59:53 PM PDT by yorkie

US President Barack Obama quietly signed his name to an Executive Order on Friday, allowing the White House to control all private communications in the country in the name of national security.

President Obama released his latest Executive Order on Friday, July 6, a 2,205-word statement offered as the “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions.” And although the president chose not to commemorate the signing with much fanfare, the powers he provides to himself and the federal government under the latest order are among the most far-reaching yet of any of his executive decisions.

“The Federal Government must have the ability to communicate at all times and under all circumstances to carry out its most critical and time sensitive missions,” the president begins the order. “Survivable, resilient, enduring and effective communications, both domestic and international, are essential to enable the executive branch to communicate within itself and with: the legislative and judicial branches; State, local, territorial and tribal governments; private sector entities; and the public, allies and other nations.”

President Obama adds that it is necessary for the government to be able to reach anyone in the country during situations it considers critical, writing, “Such communications must be possible under all circumstances to ensure national security, effectively manage emergencies and improve national resilience.” Later the president explains that such could be done by establishing a “joint industry-Government center that is capable of assisting in the initiation, coordination, restoration and reconstitution of NS/EP [national security and emergency preparedness] communications services or facilities under all conditions of emerging threats, crisis or emergency.”

“The views of all levels of government, the private and nonprofit sectors, and the public must inform the development of NS/EP communications policies, programs and capabilities,” he adds.

He's just doing all this stuff for his health.

He has absolutely no intention of actually using any of it.

The Dictator of Sodom on the Potomac takes over by EO and ignores the Congress. Sadly the US Constitution no longer exists inside the Beltway of Sodom. The Dictator rules and the MSM covers it up and the military is becoming homo hell. America is done. It shall never rise again. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. America is rust.

Well, heck. I guess I must be turning forgetful as well as elderly and creaky, because I don't recall seeing any such bull obama in the Constitution.

I agree, DRT! I think we all should purchase one, and then I think we need to have a license to operate it - anyone know?

This authority is from Communications Act of 1934 and is basically a continuation of EOs dating back to the 80s.

He doesn’t need congressional approval for anything. Once upon a time, presidents did...but in the new United States of Africa, Odinga/Mugabe/the African dictator of your choice reincarnated in Obama can do whatever he wants.

And he can also take $100 million dollar vacations whenever he and his retinue want, thank you.

This is nothing new. This EO has been around, in one form or another, since at least the early 80s. It’s standard.

I think the thing that freaks everybody out is that Obama has a track record of taking more or less innocuous things and using them as an excuse for or normalization of another power grab.

A lot of the NSA stuff was pretty harmless - because we didn’t think it was gong to be abused. But under Obama, it was.

You don't remember the Klintoonistas bragging about "Stroke of the pen, law of the land, kind of neat, Huh?" An EO can the overridden by a majority vote of the Senate but then the slavish RATs run the Senate.

I had to get a license back in the 70’s for a CB radio, still remember my call letters, but that is no longer required. I have no idea if SW is the same. I doubt the Feds are spending any money monitoring that stuff any more, but I could be wrong.

Does anyone remember what happened in - I believe it was - Bridgeport CT back in the 2010 election?

During that election, lawyers connected with the Racial Grievance Industry got a local court to declare that not enough voters - in certain voting districts of the city - had known where the polling places were, and that, for that reason, those polling places would remain open for another hour or two past the statutory time that all polling places were supposed to close state-wide.

As soon as this order - from a judge - was entered, the city activated its reverse 9-1-1 system, and informed the people - in the districts that were named in the judge's ruling - that they could still vote until much later. The "reverse 9-1-1" system is capable of placing tens of thousands of pre-recorded "robo calls" nearly simultaneously. These very expensive systems were built using government money; some elements of the systems were incorporated directly into the infrastructure of the telephone system under orders from the Federal Government.

This was done in the interests of "national security."

They're not, for the most part. They're out of office, in the hinterlands, recovering from the savage beating they've sustained in the last five years. I don't look to Washington for anything at this juncture. Time to form a new party - the Pubbies are history.
