Executive Order National Defense Resources Preparedness

President Obama just signed an Executive Order giving him and his specifically designated Secretaries authority to commandeer all domestic U.S. resources, including food and water. It authorizes them to seize all infrastructure, energy, and transportation within the U.S. and to forcibly draft American citizens into the military. It refers to harnessing American citizens to fulfill “labor requirements” for the purposes of national defense.

Housekeeping Amendment

This is a housekeeping amendment to an existing EO. While it's a horrible EO and the timing makes me very paranoid, it's a product of the system, not strictly Obama. Remove your panties from your cracks, and stop pinning this on Obama! Give Dubya some credit, will ya! ;)

Here's a side-by-side analysis with Dubya's 1994 EO: www.goo.gl/asZBJ

Diligence is still a MUST!

Thank you, Obama

I feel so much safer now.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

This is a big deal folks


Why Now?

Why is he signing this executive order now? I just read the whole thing. This is World War II level mobilizing the country, and nationalizing all our resources. What is the administration saying is the reason for doing this now? What are they saying is the pending threat? If it is terrorism, a terrorist attack -- even a nuclear detonation in a city -- doesn't warrant nationalizing all of our resources. So what threat is this executive order supposed to be countering?

The only thing that makes sense to me is the age-old racket of the government giving itself the power to give lucrative contracts to companies that will fund future re-election campaigns. This Order is full of authorities for subsidizing businesses, assigning priority of contracts, giving the National Labor Relations Board a say (i.e., ensure contracts are awarded to union shops).

I'm not counting out that this might be related to recent laws passed such as HR 347 (Trespass Act), ObamaCare violation of religious conscience, NDAA indefinite detention provisions, FEMA camp contingency plans, and Patriot Act. I'm sure the UN Small Arms treaty will be upon us soon. I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist, but all this put together is astonishing. Our Constitution is being blatently violated, regardless of the motives. It has affected almost every Amendment in the Bill of Rights. The Third Amendment and the Seventh Amendment are the only ones I think haven't been violated at this point. However, this Executive Order could very well be used to violate the Third and at least affect the Seventh.

I was really surprised this DP topic was so far down on the 'vote' totem pole. It had a vote of "1" after I hit "+". Doesn't this concern anyone?

Because he is running out of time

His agenda to transform this nation to communist socialism is running out of time. He has been true to form from the beginning and I knew he would pull this before he got out of there.It was predictable.
