DO OBAMA’S EXECUTIVE ORDERS REVEAL A PATTERN? 7/21/12
Obama has offered over 900 Executive Orders (EO), and he is not even through his first term. Including a list of “Emergency Powers” and martial law EOs. And while Obama is busy issuing EOs to control everything inside the US, he has been issuing EOs to force us to submit to international regulations instead of our US Constitution.
Obama says (among other things) that [we must]: be prepared, in the event of a potential threat to the security of the United States. Obama has the power, through this EO, to “nationalize” (not seize) private assets in order to protect national interests.
EO 13603, Obama has given himself power to declare martial law and suspend elections.
EO 13617 the Russian Federation continues to constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.
We don’t want to offend the Russians by having them honor treaties they signed (the “HEU” Agreement). But what’s more important is that Obama can now “justify” any action he wants to take by citing EO 13617 since it declares a national emergency.
Then, in EO 13618, entitled, “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions,” Obama states (among other things) that: The Federal Government must have the ability to communicate at all times and under all circumstances. Obama sees ANY excuse for declaring a national security emergency will appear better than taking over the nation’s communications assets by force.
EO 10990 allows the Government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.
EO 10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels, and minerals.
EO 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision
EO 11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.
EO 11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
EO 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate and establish new locations for populations.
EO 11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways, and public storage facilities.
Former White House director of the Office of Management and Budget Peter Orszag, who, on September 14, 2011, in a The New Republic article entitled “Too Much of a Good Thing: Why we need less democracy,” said that we are that we are hampered by too much democracy, that the constitutional system (not really a democracy) is too slow to react, and the deliberations and negotiations are simply too cumbersome. Orszag suggests that the constitutional rules of limiting government offers impediments to autocratic, dictatorial actions, and are just too great.
Orszag, believes that doing away with the US Constitution is a viable solution should cause every AT reader to quake. I’m never comfortable with laws that give the government broad reaching powers in the event of a “national emergency.”
