President Obama signs Executive Order allowing for control over all US resources
examiner.com ^ | March 17, 2012 | Kenneth Schortgen Jr

Posted on 03/17/2012 5:05:01 PM PDT by upchuck

On March 16th, President Obama signed a new Executive Order which expands upon a prior order issued in 1950 for Disaster Preparedness, and gives the office of the President complete control over all the resources in the United States in times of war or emergency.

The National Defense Resources Preparedness order gives the Executive Branch the power to control and allocate energy, production, transportation, food, and even water resources by decree under the auspices of national defense and national security. The order is not limited to wartime implementation, as one of the order's functions includes the command and control of resources in peacetime determinations.

Additionally, each cabinet under the Executive Branch has been given specific powers when the order is executed, and include the absolute control over food, water, and other resource distributions.

The Obama administration appears to be preparing for a long drawn out war in the Middle East, or at the very least, an expected crisis that will require the need to override Constitutional authority and claim dominion over all resources in the United States under the guise of national defense. With the rise in Disaster Preparedness growing for both individuals and states leading up to yesterday's Executive Order, the mood of the nation points strongly towards some event or disaster that will require massive preparations on a national as well as local scale.

I am also pissed off and very worried but I also know that the military of today and I mean the enlisted and officers, at least most colonels and below, know very well what their oaths mean and where the problems lie. Nobody should think for a minute that the troops today are mindless robots who swear an oath of allegiance to any politician. They do understand their duty to the Constitution and many are as worried about the current situation as any one of us.

Even if there is no credible threat, this administration is not beyond lying and claiming there is a threat and the media won’t ask one single question or challenge it or request proof. He has another tether around the throat of the U.S. people

Unless I’m missing it, i’m still seeing nothing about this on Breitbart.com, or Drudge.

At the time I posted this, the examiner.com article was all I could find on this.

Still nothing on Drudge. I emailed him links to the original article and to this thread.

Somebody needs to WAKE UP!!

Yes indeed. Before or after the election, will be the “emergency.” I don’t think we will see any president but Obama installed. They are going to win in a Chicago Landslide. That’s why the no photo-voter crusade, etc. They have no plan to lose, so I think they have a plan to win. No matter what.

Canada Free Press now has an article here

Part of it:

This Executive Order was posted on the WhiteHouse.gov web site on Friday, March 16, 2012, under the name National Defense Resources Preparedness. In a nutshell, it’s the blueprint for Peacetime Martial Law and it gives the president the power to take just about anything deemed necessary for “National Defense”, whatever they decide that is. It’s peacetime, because as the title of the order says, it’s for “Preparedness”. A copy of the entire order follows the end of this story.

Under this order the heads of these cabinet level positions; Agriculture, Energy, Health and Human Services, Transportation, Defense and Commerce can take food, livestock, fertilizer, farm equipment, all forms of energy, water resources, all forms of civil transporation (meaning any vehicles, boats, planes), and any other materials, including construction materials from wherever they are available. This is probably why the government has been visiting farms with GPS devices, so they know exactly where to go when they turn this one on.

Specifically, the government is allowed to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate. They decide what necessary or appropriate means.

More at the link.

Yep, the fix is in, on every level. The ABCNNBCBS affiliates of Gangster Govt are fully in on the deal. They would report 90% votes for Obama with straight faces. They would put Obama portraits on the walls behind the anchor desks. George S. will continue to prostitute himself. Birth control, anyone? George and his pals will oil up the new memes and slide them right in, smiling.

This is what liberal facsism will look like, at first. Before they start to round up the scapegoats, and parade them for their Hours of Hate on GGTV.

I’ve read every thread about his ability now to control everything in this country, including your food, water, energy of any kind, plus the new law that say no one can say anything against the president or his policies if the person is anywhere near him, or the person will be arrested and given a big fine.

If he is reelected, I wonder if we can write anything against his policies a year from now?

We are in serious trouble and everyone should have stored food and water.

Look, I wasn’t being snarky. I was being stupid and thought I was helping. I was paraphrasing a comment I read from an earlier thread. I stand on my interpretation of that particular comment. It had nothing to do with the suggestion to “read all four threads”, or whatever.

So, go instuct someone else on the measure of your psychic ability, or lack thereof.

I have NEVER seen a GOP House & Senate that did absolutely nothing in a REAL emergency.....until NOW! And we need them more now, than any time in my life.They allowed Kagan(a communist from college days) and Sotomayor to be approved...neither one was REMOTELY qualified for SCOTUS!!
Obama has begun to take over every facet of our lives, and the Constitution doesn’t even exist anymore!He must be totally emboldened by the silence of our reps in D.C. He is capable of starting a war, race riots, anything, because nobody seems interested in stopping him. He must be in “Communist Pig Heaven”

You're right. God bless you and patriots everywhere. We have to rebel and Be Breitbart.

Notice that the majority of office holders have signed onto Romney's campaign. Worthless RINOS.

That is what I have been thinking. Where are these guys on this? Plus, has this even been discussed openly by anyone in the government? It seems that this a pretty big deal and needs to be explained to the public why this is being done now by executive order and what it means.

Innocently enough crafted in the beginning, taken altogether it can and has become something quite different.” <<

I was paraphrasing a comment I read from an earlier thread. I stand on my interpretation of that particular comment.

I don't claim and definitely don't have psychic abilities so I had no idea you were referring to an unmentioned comment from another thread. I made the mistake of assuming you were referring to the one and only comment I had replied to on this thread. How I came to that conclusion only Heaven would know.

FWIW I was talking about your apparent psychic abilities not mine.

"Perhaps the nobama regime believes there is a credible threat to the US from Iran. Possibly a surgical electro-magnetic pulse explosion (don't need a nuke for that)."

Exactly! What better reason to declare martial law than to have an EMP device(s)knock out our electrical infrastructure? And no they don't have to be nukes, and it doesn't have to be Iran doing it. Food for thought....

Not very trustworthy or he would have warned the nation about Obama.

I would assume that somewhere in the governmental structure there has to be a strategy/plan that deals with a rogue presidential administration. Certainly, the opposite party in Congress, has emergency measures to thwart a takeover. There is no way a “shadow government” or redundancy system doesn’t exist.
