A Presidential executive order is most commonly applied to orders issued by thePresident, who is the head of the executive branch of the federal government
U.S. Presidents have issued executive orders since 1789, usually to help officers and agencies of the executive branch manage the operations of the federal government itself. Executive orders have the full force of law, since they should be made in pursuance of Acts of Congress which specifically delegate to the President some degree of discretionary power, or are derived from a power granted directly to the Executive by the Constitution. Occasionally the justifications cited by Presidents when authoring Executive Orders have been criticised for exceeding Executive authority.
Some say that this NATIONAL DEFENSE RESOURCES PREPAREDNESS EO issued on 16 Mar 2012 is nothing but a directive to the respective federal agencies to get a plan together, or update an outdated plan to prepare for the possibility of a national emegency.
Message from the President Regarding the Continuation of the National Emergency (partial)
The White House ^ | 9/9/2011 | Office of the Press Secretary
“The terrorist threat that led to the declaration on September 14, 2001, of a national emergency continues. For this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue in effect after September 14, 2011, the national emergency with respect to the terrorist threat. Barack Obama”
Interesting combination of events – especially in the order and timing of the announcements…
Now Lets connect the Dots to Barack Obama’s incipient tyranny

It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months.
Consider this quote from Obama regarding Executive Orders that are used to hide or cover up information that the president wishes to keep secret, “For a long time now, there’s been too much secrecy in this city. This administration stands on the side not of those who seek to withhold information but with those who seek it to be known,” Obama said after signing the order rescinding the Bush-era measure.
“The mere fact that you have the legal power to keep something secret does not mean you should always use it. Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency.”
That was one of the first utterances made by Obama after taking office; I DON’T THINK HE HAS TOLD A BIGGER LIE THAN THAT ONE EVER SINCE.
We are regularly scolded as to how comparing Obama’s administration in any way to Nazi’s or Fascism has been regarded as a bad idea.
My view is: How can we compare it to anything else?
All of these EOs are under Obama’s watch. All that is missing is the “fire at the Reichstag” as Obama’s own version of Adolph’s Enabling Act.
When you say, “Nah, he couldn’t do that here because we are protected by a written Constitution,” remember this:
“In 1934, the Weimar Republic was protected by a written Constitution that was just as powerful as the Constitution of the United States. The Weimar Constitution required the President and Chancellor of Germany go to the members of the Reichstag for authority to do anything. Once he was able to rule by decree, IT TOOK ADOLPH HITLER EXACTLY 39 DAYS TO DESTROY THE WEIMAR CONSTITUTION and become an absolute dictator—-and assume the power of life and death over every subject in the THIRD REICH.”
A few scenarios for your perusal
1) An EMP attack by Iran launched from Venezuela, followed by Hezbollah sleeper cells rising up and wreaking havoc in every major city and fanning out from there to the more rural areas. This would be the final communist-Islamist coup that George Soros and his communist and Muslim allies have been preparing America for.
2) Another economic run on the bank by Soros’ communist and Islamist allies who did the last run on the bank to get Obama elected and (I believe) threatened the media companies, eligibility judges, Congressional leaders, Bush, Cheney, and again threatening to collapse the world economy
3) Riots spurred on by the union heads. This is what retired military generals such as Paul Vallely believe has been threatened in order to get Congress and the Supreme Court to kowtow to Obama on things like Obama’s ineligibility.
Obama has moved 30,000 soldiers out of the US to go to Afghanistan. He’s long said that he wanted a CIVILIAN force that was just as powerful as the military, and in spite of not having enough soldiers that we use wounded soldiers on 4th tours we are reducing the size of the US Armed Forces So it very much looks like Obama is defunding, the legitimate, Constitutional military, while pushing for an Obamunist CIVILIAN militia force as he has always wanted.
Why a civilian force rather than military? Because the US military has officers who have sworn to protect and defend the US Constitution over and above any tyrant in the White House. If the chain of command came to realize that their CINC is an unconstitutional foreign enemy combatant they would have a duty to disobey him and even depose him.
The continued existence of a constitutional republic may well rest on the shoulders of the 2-3-star generals who have to decide whether they meant their oaths or not, and whether their own promotion means more to them than the existence of this country for their children and grandchildren.
In Feb of 2012 Obama, complained: “People are frustrated I can’t force my will on Congress … Our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change than I would like sometimes.”
No, that was the entire purpose of the Founding Fathers so has to prevent the consolidation of power by usurping the Constitution and acting illegally without the consent of Congress.
Make light of this latest EO if you will, you might reconsider when the fecal matter strikes the air current generating device. This EO basically grants full ownership of every object, living or otherwise, on the North American Continent to the President and his Cabinet Secretaries. Consider this:
Sec. 502. Consultants. The head of each agency otherwise delegated functions under this order is delegated the authority of the President under sections 710(b) and (c) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2160(b), (c), to employ persons of outstanding experience and ability without compensation and to employ experts, consultants, or organizations. The authority delegated by this section may not be redelegated.
Wow! I’m sure I heard somewhere that Abe Lincoln fought a war over this type of thing.
Now here’s your Civilian Military Force (Brown Shirts?)
PART V – EMPLOYMENT OF PERSONNEL
Sec. 501. National Defense Executive Reserve. (a) In accordance with section 710(e) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2160(e), there is established in the executive branch a National Defense Executive Reserve (NDER) composed of persons of recognized expertise from various segments of the private sector and from Government (except full time Federal employees) for training for employment in executive positions in the Federal Government in the event of a national defense emergency.
(b) The Secretary of Homeland Security shall issue necessary guidance for the NDER program, including appropriate guidance for establishment, recruitment, training, monitoring, and activation of NDER units and shall be responsible for the overall coordination of the NDER program. The authority of the President under section 710(e) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2160(e), to determine periods of national defense emergency is delegated to the Secretary of Homeland Security.
It seems Obama isn’t going to wait for a national emergency to set this all up. (Not that he’s going to lack one. Pretty sure that’s in the plan, too.)
201 (b) The Secretary of each agency delegated authority under subsection (a) of this section (resource departments) shall plan for and issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources and establish standards and procedures by which the authority shall be used to promote the national defense, under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.
And then there is this little tool to accelerate the coming crash, which by the way, has already been defined as a covered type of national emergency in a previous executive order…
Sec. 301. Loan Guarantees. (a) To reduce current or projected shortfalls of resources, critical technology items, or materials essential for the national defense, the head of each agency engaged in procurement for the national defense, as defined in section 801(h) of this order, is authorized pursuant to section 301 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2091, to guarantee loans by private institutions.
This allows Obama & Company to setup “friends” as defense contractors, food suppliers, manufacturers through the “loans and grants”.
If they think most armor manufacturers are run by conservatives or loyal Americans, they will create new armor manufacturers (using taxpayer money) that are operated by radical socialists. Guess who is going to have the lowest costs?
This is the means to create companies that produce food, energy, defense, etc which are loyal to the socialist cause and will ensure those who hold power are protected, fed and comfortable.
“The Clinton amendment did not accomplish what the Obama one does.
Compare them side by side, and include the Reagan version and the 1950 act.
Obama: Sec. 102. Policy. The United States must have an industrial and technological base capable of meeting national defense requirements and capable of contributing to the technological superiority of its national defense equipment in peacetime and in times of national emergency. The domestic industrial and technological base is the foundation for national defense preparedness. The authorities provided in the Act shall be used to strengthen this base and to ensure it is capable of responding to the national defense NEEDS of the United States.
Clinton: Sec. 102. Policy. The United States must have an industrial and technology base capable of meeting national defense requirements, and capable of contributing to the technological superiority of its defense equipment in peacetime and in times of national emergency. The domestic industrial and technological base is the foundation for national defense preparedness. The authorities provided in the Act shall be used to strengthen this base and to ensure it is capable of responding to all threats to the national security of the United States.
How does changing ONE word alter this EO? Clinton said “threats,” Obama is saying “needs.” If they are synonymous, why change them at all?
Read section 102 on the Clinton version, and the Obama version, the change was 1 word. That 1 word changes everything, and does change the EO to something completely different that is crafted of “need” as opposed to “Threat.
Need is a ubiquitous concept, threat is a very narrow one in comparison. That is only the second segment. Once you read the whole thing you understand the scope of it is unprecedented, and the very thing we need to neutralize the Conservative agenda, and ell the obstructionism practiced by the Republican congress.
But what if the Federal Government, under the guise of national emergency and with nothing but the pseudo-authority of Executive Orders, were to attempt to circumvent the Constitution? Who could imagine such a preposterous thing?
Well, the likes of Patrick Henry, to name one, and other anti-Federalists of the day who raised the specter of such an event.
Madison was incredulous at this paranoid assertion and responded to such a “hypothetical” situation by writing, “But ambitious encroachments of the federal government on the authority of the state governments would not excite the opposition of a single state, or of a few States only. They would be signals of general alarm. Every government would espouse the common cause. . . Plans of resistance would be concerted.”
Madison obviously thought the idea of a runaway federal government was ludicrous! Besides, he reasoned, the state militias are armed and ready to fight such an obvious act of tyranny.
Not just one or two States, but ALL of them would certainly rise up with force of arms and resist! He rebuffed his detractors by saying, “[t]hat the governments and the people of the States should silently and patiently behold the gathering storm and continue to supply the materials until it should be prepared to burst on their own heads must appear to everyone more like the incoherent dreams of a delirious jealousy. . .than the sober apprehensions of genuine patriotism.”
I saw this on the Democrat Underground website:
“Democrats and Independents rejoice.
Obama is doing the one thing that will get us out from under right wing boot.
He is doing what we all want him to do, and all we said he did not do in one fell sweep.
This Executive Order changes everything.
Read the whole thing 10 times it’s going to be talked about more than any other EO in history.
I’m reading it and so far it seems to be exactly what is, we are becoming a new form of government.
Obama is now going to systematically engineer the recovery, and eliminate all the Republican obstructionism by using the powers of the executive branch to defeat the abuses we have seen from the legislative, and judicial.
This is a big deal and the reaction is going to be epic.
I’m still reading but I implore people to read it and read all of it until we understand it fully.
Yikes. By George I think they’ve got it!!!
The outraged citizens were the ones who were supposed to do the tar and feathering. Obama is czar and fettering us!
In conclusion just let me say BHO Umm UMMM UMMMM!!!!
