This one has not made much news outside of the conservative blogosphere. It is the newest executive order signed by Barack Obama.
Anyone nervous yet?
From the Examiner:
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.
I am not an alarmist but the idea of the Obama regime having total control over anything is disturbing. No it isn’t disturbing, it is totally, freaking scary.
Also from the Examiner:
The economy of the United States is based on the free flow of resources, energy, and the rights of consumers to buy and sell as they see fit. Any interference in this economic process quickly leads to shortages, rising prices, and civil unrest. The purpose of President Obama signing this new Executive Order is yet unclear, however, it may coincide with information coming out of Israel yesterday that plans for a tactical or strategic strike on Iran are accelerating. Oil prices in Europe rose over $3 a barrel for Brent crude after the Israeli actions, and US oil prices rose $2 for WTI.
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.
Any one really nervous yet?
Given the cavalier way the Obama regime tends to ignore the Constitution, the thought of the Regime having emergency powers is a nightmare.
A coup against the American people and their right of self-government...that's what.
What did Hitler use the Sturmabteilung for?
10 - 4 on all that.
Infact when I enlisted in the military in 1963 I raised my right hand and swore to uhold and protect the constitution of the United States, Not the president!
I agree with Billy on one thing - Truman valued and respected the military like no other President until Reagan.
I'm not sure about the whole Kennedy thing ... but I would say that I don't believe the full story of that assassination has ever been told, in any form - and probably won't be for decades.
The reasons coups are successful is that complacent people do not believe they can happen. What the Hades are all the "czars" doing. We know O has taken over the bureaucracy with appointments and executive orders. The bureaucracy is the real control over our daily lives. Will the mlitary follow his orders? I wish I knew? In Nam we were never told we didn't have to obey an illegal order. Of course AFTER the Mi Li massacre it was a different tune. One can ALWAYS depend on the brass to cover thier asses. Then how is a serviceman going to know if a specific order is illegal? It's easy sitting here but not so a real command situation. Failure to follow an order can result in a firing squad. That's a strong incentive to do so. O can easily bring about a crisis to trigger all this. Occupy (this that and the other) will be the trigger. These people are violent by nature. And I do hope everything I just wrote is a bunch of nonsense.
I hope that it's nonsense, too, Larry .... but we're both pragmatic, reasonable adults. And we both understand the threat to the Republic that Obama and his ilk represent from what they've done since 2008.
Which is why 2012 is a make-or-break year and election for us; probably more so than any of us truly realizes.
We saw "Act of Valor" last night. A little bad language and violence, but I am in awe of our Military. ..especially 'special service'...as I have a family member who was a SEAL.
We need to be as fearless as this lady...
I Read this at C4P:
"After noting how the Obama campaign used her (Sarah Palin) in an ad as if she were a political candidate, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin challenged the president to a debate, “anywhere, anytime” according to The Hill.
Human Events thinks that the idea of an Obama/Palin debate is excellent. The theory is that if Obama is going to treat Palin as if she were his political rival in an attack ad, he might as well go all the way and meet her one on one to discuss the issues of the day.
Of course Obama will no more debate Palin than he would play a one on one basketball game with her. She would beat him in both contests."
Debrajoe..We all know that..but, he and his administration don't care about any Laws of this Land. of ours....except their own.
We need to start putting heavy pressure on our so called Political Reps in DC to start the impeachment process on this guy and Start it... NOW.
So what else is new Debrajoe? It seems that this President can violate the constitution and break every law in the land and no one seems to give a d*m. It's not just the President that should be tried for treason, it's also the majority of Congress. What we need to insist upon, after we elect an American as our President in 2012, is another Un-American activities committee to try,convict and deport all these Socialist/Marxist if anybody will take them. If not we could create another devil's island.
It is getting really old reading about all that Obama has done or will do.Every day it is a new nitemare story to read.I want to read about what is being done to stop him or what I can do to help stop him.I want solutions,not the daily sob story..
Well said, Kenneth! What do you people reading this intend to DO, not what do you just intend to say?
VOTE REPUBLICAN!!!!! No matter who it is. There has to be someone with a shred of love for this country and what it is founded on to get into the office and congress. Has everyone gone batty in DC?
