My thoughts, FWIW--

- I have wondered for some time if nobama would try and cancel or "permanently delay" the November elections. Maybe this is somehow connected with that?

- 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).

- Maybe this is tied to the "talk from the shadows" that FEMA has been provisioning some of the closed military bases (refurbing barracks and building more, with lots and lots of barbed wire) for who knows what.

As the Chinese say, we live in interesting times.

He’s in serious trouble with the elecorate and he knows it, so he needs a back-up plan to take care of the election.

At least this travesty is inching it's way out into cyberspace.
As of this morning, the only place anyone had seen/heard about it was here on FR.

While poking around on the Examiner site, this bit of info showed itself:

CBS Local Digital Media and Examiner.com Form Original Content Partnership

Given their having gotten into bed with CBS,
it'll be interesting to see how long Examiner's coverage of this issue lasts once the weekend's over . . .

For those who've yet to see it, here's a hotlink for the original FR posting this morning:

Executive Order: National Defense Resources Preparedness

These kinds of laws are predicated on the assumption that a president would be a patriot, a man to honor his oath of office and uphold the US Constitution, and one to hold the interests of America and Americans first and foremost in his heart.

No one ever thought we would have a person like Barack Obama as president. A man who is a traitor to the country, a traitor to his oath of office, a traitor to the US Constitution and a man who does not love America or place our interests first.

A man like Barack Obama cannot be trusted to exercise this kind of authority in the ways intended.

We Need a patriotic rebellion for real.

To fire everyone who is there in DC and undo the government and media aggression.

It looks like the leftists in power are setting the stage in case when he wins reelection- they know most of us will see it as a stolen election; they will have things set to fast express his agenda. This guy is for real, folks. Do we think John McCain and the Speaker from Ohio will do much. Are they brave? I think dark days are ahead. If it were a video game; if one were into seeing countries turn from being a free nation of free people to countries such as China or Venezuela; guess it could be a captivating game. Our Founding Fathers gave us the blueprint of this very scenario happening and of how for us not to allow it. This is becoming scary, really.

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.

Considering that everything from a hangnail to a paper cut is deemed a crisis requiring government intervention, I can just imaging what would qualify for an emergency.

be prepared, in the event of a potential threat to the security of the United States, to take actions necessary to ensure the availability of adequate resources and production capability, including services and critical technology, for national defense requirements

"in the event of a potential threat to the security"

Not even an actual threat. A potential threat.

Amen, that is the difference between Obama and a man like Bush.

Bush had his faults, but he could be trusted to not do something like this.

Obama is AMORAL and cannot be trusted.

I am not a lawer, but I understood that executive orders apply only to the departments of the executive branch under control of the President. Perhaps some Lawyer Freeper could confirm this. The elections are under control of the states.

Of course, he could always just act like he had the power to seize private property or cancel elections and if not challenged by “the people” and the states then I suppose he would have raw power, just no legal basis for his actions.

50 USC 1641 “Not later than ninety days after the termination of each such emergency or war, the President shall transmit a final report on all such expenditures.”

He’s pushed it back to September of this year because addressing the matter now (as would be required by the law, above) would create a lot work for him.
I suspect his reasoning is, `Never do today what you can kick down the road or dump on your successor.’
At the same time, `It’s Good to Be a War King.’

Snip;

Executive Orders created for national defense and national preparedness are not new in American history, but in each instance they brought about a Constitutional crisis that nearly led standing Presidents to hold dictatorial power over the citizenry. During the Civil War, President Lincoln halted freedom of speech and freedom of the press,

King Obama invokes Lincoln to achieve his goals.

Your panties seem to be in an especial wad in regard to this topic.

If Jim or the mods find it unworthy of FR's attention, it'll be nuked in due course.
If it bothers you so much and/or you find it merely the rantings of the paranoid, here's a hint: click on something else

In the meantime, an impartial observer could easily conclude that you're making an effort to discourage fellow FReepers from deciding for themselves.

I don’t think our military will stand for it

Sadly, disagree....there's no longer an "Old Corps"; just a bunch of 'lifers' who couldn't hack it in the real world, covering their asses until tit-time.......same phocking reason I got my ass out of the Marine Corps as quick as my time was up waaaay back in 1968.

I think I remember you griping earlier. People need to be aware of Executive Orders signed without any transparency.

Nobody is stating that they have proof Obama would find a way to use this EO. But the people do need to know that he has given himself extra power outside of Congress approval. More power than any President has ever had.

IF Obama is reelected, most people will be in for a real shock, because he will go all out. And I’ll make a bet he won’t even be remotely nice about it either.

I agree. I work at a military base and the old guard is being forced out to let younger more inexperienced people take over.

In other words, the ones who know what to do and how to do it are being forced out in favor of someone who might be able to run 1.5 miles within standards but couldn't aim a rifle if his life depended on it.

You're right, he's a traitor to our Constitution and to the office he holds.

He's gone ballistic with E.O.'s!

He goes around Congress and the democrats in the Senate permit him while the RINOS don't know how to fight or won't.

TEA Party Rebellion!

Will we have an election?
