Posted on 03/18/2012 1:35:36 PM PDT by My Favorite Headache
Ok...so Drudge and others are talking about the E.O. that was re-signed by Obama on Friday with the additional words "non-emergency" added to it as well.
Dig a little deeper...now mind you I am not jumping on the Alex Jones bandwagon just yet...but what's up with these other E.O.'s being signed days and weeks apart that actually link right along with what was re-signed and amended on Friday night?

To help protect national security and further American economic, humanitarian, and strategic interests in the world, it is the policy of the Federal Government to promote and elevate development as a core pillar of American power and chart a course for development, diplomacy, and defense to reinforce and complement one another. As stated in the 2010 National Security Strategy and the Presidential Policy Directive on Global Development, the successful pursuit of development is essential to advancing our national security objectives: security, prosperity, respect for universal values, and a just and sustainable international order. The effectiveness of this development policy will depend in large measure on how we engage with partners, beneficiaries of our development assistance, and stakeholders. We will use evidence-based decision-making in all areas of U.S. development policy and programs, and we commit to foster development expertise and learning worldwide.
Sec. 2. Establishment.
There is established the President's Global Development Council (Council). The Council shall be established for administrative purposes within the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) subject to the foreign policy and budgetary guidance of the Secretary of State.

The Chair shall convene and preside at meetings of the Council, determine meeting agendas, and direct its work.

The Council shall advise and support the President, through the National Security Staff and the National Economic Council staff, in furtherance of the policy set forth in section 1 of this order. The Council shall meet regularly and shall:
(a) inform the policy and practice of U.S. global development policy and programs by providing advice to the President and other senior officials on issues including: (i) innovative, scalable approaches to development with proven demonstrable impact, particularly on sustainable economic growth and good governance; (ii) areas for enhanced collaboration between the Federal Government and public and private sectors to advance development policy; (iii) best practices for and effectiveness of research and development in low and middle income economies; and (iv) long-term solutions to issues central to strategic planning for U.S. development efforts; (b) support new and existing public-private partnerships by: (i) identifying key areas for enhanced collaboration and any barriers to collaboration; and (ii) recommending concrete efforts that the private and public sectors together can take to promote economic development priorities and initiatives; and (c) increase awareness and action in support of development by soliciting public input on current and emerging issues in the field of global development as well as bringing to the President's attention concerns and ideas that would inform policy options.

Members of the Council may, however, receive travel expenses, including per diem in lieu of subsistence, as authorized by law for persons serving intermittently in the Government service (5 U.S.C. 5701-5707).

Executive Order 13602 of March 15, 2012
Establishing a White House Council on Strong Cities, Strong Communities
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to forge a partnership with local communities to provide them with comprehensive technical assistance to use and compete for Federal resources more effectively and efficiently, which will enable them to develop and implement economic strategies to become more competitive, sustainable, and inclusive, it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. Policy.
Cities, towns, and regions across our Nation continue to face difficult economic challenges. Enhancing current Federal assistance is helping to lift communities out of distress. To allow the Federal Government to better partner with these local communities to build local capacity to address economic issues, and to support comprehensive planning and regional collaboration, my Administration established the Strong Cities, Strong Communities (SC2) pilot initiative. By partnering with cities and regions to augment their vision for stability and economic growth, the SC2 was designed to help communities strengthen their capacity to create jobs and more competitive business climates, and implement locally driven community and regional planning approaches that lead to sustained economic growth, as well as ensure that Federal assistance is more efficiently provided and used.
This order improves the way the Federal Government engages with and supports local communities by better aligning resources and coordinating efforts across executive departments and agencies (agencies) so that communities across the country have access to comprehensive, localized technical assistance and planning resources to develop and implement their economic vision and strategies.
Sec. 2. White House Council on Strong Cities, Strong Communities.

Sec. 4. Outreach.
Consistent with the objectives set forth in this order, the Council, in accordance with applicable law, shall conduct outreach to representatives of nonprofit organizations, businesses, labor organizations, State and local government agencies, school districts, elected officials, faith and other community based organizations, philanthropies, other institutions of local importance, and other interested persons with relevant expertise in the expansion and improvement of efforts to build local capacity to address economic issues in cities and communities.

Yep...and to put a spin on the first hog’s comment:
For the first time in my adult life, I’m ashamed/embarassed to be an American.
It’s because Obama knows he is likely to lose this next election.
Usurper (most likely an illegal alien) as POTUS:
Oh no, the Clinton’s would NEVER let that happen
Oh no, the Republicans would NEVER let that happen.
Oh no, the 50 SOS’s would NEVER let that happen.
Oh no, the Congress would NEVER let that happen.
Oh no, the Military would NEVER let the happen.
Oh no, the Supreme Court would NEVER let that happen.
Oh no, the Conservative media would NEVER let that happen.
Oh no, the Secret Service would NEVER let that happen.
Oh no, the Judiciary would NEVER let that happen.
Fast and Furious:
Oh no, Homeland Security would NEVER let that happen.
Oh no, the FBI would NEVER let that happen.
Oh no, the ATF would NEVER let that happen.
Bushs are not yukking up nothing now
What do you mean?
“When I saw Bush 41 and Jeb Bush yucking it up with the evil bastard in the Oval Office just a month ago, I knew. It made me sick”
Ditto for me
Some animals are more equal than others.
When we get to that point in our communist future where we decide we have nothing to lose, those Patton quotes will come in handy. We’ll need a Patton, a George Washington, maybe even a Spartacus to lead us.
When I said the Tea Party was a nice try, I meant the same thing you said. We won in Nov 2010, but began to lose in January 2011. We needed to get angry at those politicians we sent to DC. Really angry. To quote my favorite movie hero Josie Wales: “Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is.”
We failed to do that. The communists and GOP eunuchs beat us through our own complacency. We never thought the communists would win, so we just assumed that the problem would go away. Now we’re going to pay for that assumption (and you know what they say about ASSUME!)
Yes, all Americans should be shamed and shocked to have the likes of these evil bastards in our White House.
General Pinochet type also comes to mind.
These EO's to "secure" the Internet and the resources and such are just opening moves to a game that is going to get bloody real quick.
Stock market crashes and bank runs aren't all that big a concern to most folks being their portfolios are gutted and hardly anyone is saving money when passbook savings accounts and money market savings rates are under 2%.
BUT when bank runs and market crashes affect the food supply (especially if the Dollar collapses) THEN the government will have to pull the plug on the Internet and declare marshal law because if they don't most of them will be hanging from the street lights within a couple of weeks.
Take down the Internet and have troops patrolling the streets and you stop the avalanche before it starts.
If they don't close down the net; even if Obama and crew had the best interests of the country at heart (which I am sure they don't); they run the risk of a Revolution starting and an overthrow of the government. They've seen it happen in the last year with the Arab Spring. No government is going to risk that.
Government seeks to control... period!
I honestly don't think these measures are for that issue. Now I may be wrong on such but I have a suspicion that all this stuff (Internet shutdown authority Law, takeover of resources EO, marshal law EO) is a natural response from what happened during the Arab Spring.
See the FED and the EU are engaged in a Juggling act that can't last. Soon someone makes a connection and the markets are going to crash and the bank runs will start and if it is bad enough to stop the food supplies in the US then we will have us and Honest to God Revolution.
But if you shut down the Internet and control the resources and have armed troops in the streets you can cut the legs right out from under such before it starts. Maybe even stop the run on the banks. (Hard to do modern day banking without the Internet)
That leader is out there somewhere. I believe that with my entire being. There are many solid patriots. Many who have already fought...and they are true leaders. Being American is not just about the country, being American is a thought process. Some of us are ingrained with it and recognize what is being done for what it is. We have pursued (and should pursue) all avenues peacefully but our enemy is also in our ranks (repubs).
Remember, only 20%-some say 30% (I believe that is an overly liberal estimate) of the population fought in the Revolutionary war while the remainder of the population didn’t want to get involved or they were on the side of the Tories. Those figures are probably pretty much in line with today’s population.
Love that quote from Josie Wales!
Hey...be sure to take a look at that interview if you have a chance.
Been terrific chatting with you.
“WHAT can be done about it?”
This topic is frequent here on FR.
The problem is that you are not fighting a foreign invasion.
You are fighting the opinions of misguided fellow citizens, as well as the illegals.
All the talk of stocking up on ammo and Tupperware full of beans is little more then whistling in your britches.
You are not going to pull off a new American revolution
with guns, as you will be fighting your fellow citizens,
not the king of England, even though you see them as foreign invaders.
Unfortunately, America is not alone with turmoil .
It is festering all over the globe.
Since I am now retired, I have been fortunate enough to
leave and see other parts of the world, starting in Central Europe, and now in Asia.
There is just no way that I would be able to tolerate what
fellow Americans are now suffering, and there not a damn way in the world that my staying there would be of any help.
In my opinion, if Americans are foolish enough to reelect
Obumbo, it will be all over but the shouting.
Even if he is defeated, it will be very hard to undo the damage, and return to the country that we had under Ronald Reagan.
Who was it that answered the question Whats there to worry about? with the answer nothing? Who was it that said Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!? Thats who I was addressing that too, and anyone else who thinks this is nothing to worry about.
yes, about a half hour left, it is recorded so you can start from the begining shortly after it is over and a link will be placed
TSA already has a Domestic Force on the ground:
Three things come to mind for these Executive Orders
First...war ahead with Iran/Syria, perhaps sooner rather than later. Political move for having stalled BeBe off until it’s to Obamas advantage in the election.
Second...He said he’d go move ahead without congress. To show he’s the man with the power and nobody’ts going to get one over on him.
Third....All moves position the USA for Global Governance...and to squell any outrage when it’s a go. They’re already saying Obma needs to be the leader.
I think you don’t understand the extent that the election process and voting has been corrupted.
The GOP itself is committing fraud in the caucus and nomination process and no one is doing anything about it.
If the so called principled party is committing fraud, then what the democrats will do is breathtaking in its criminality.
Both parties are corrupt at this point, by the globalist money and the globalist agenda. They won’t have to re-elect Obama, because Obama or Romney, both have allegiance to foreign interests and either one will do for the globalist agenda and coming officially sanctioned global government.
With this EO, all Obama’s councils have to do is say, if we pledge allegiance to global government we will be helping all the other countries in the world we are supposed to help with the EO.
This race is EU or NAU (obama or romney). Not good for the American people AT all.
