Obama Executive Order: Peacetime Martial Law!

UPDATE: Since I posted this last night, Twitter is on fire about this Executive Order. We need to call our Congressman and both of our Senators tomorrow and tell them it is past time to stop this President's usurpation of authority. We can not continue to ignore his unprecedented power grab!

UPDATE II: Hot Air seems to have a different take on this and they are saying this is business as usual and just an update to a previous EO. Really? I'm still going to contact my representatives but just like Fox News - We report, you decide.

Hot Air: “National Defense Resources Preparedness” executive order: Power grab or mere update?

This Executive Order was posted on the  web site on Friday, March 16, 2012, under the name National Defense Resources Preparedness.  In a nutshell, it’s the blueprint for Peacetime Martial Law and it gives the president the power to take just about anything deemed necessary for “National Defense”, whatever they decide that is.    It’s peacetime, because as the title of the order says, it’s for “Preparedness”.  A copy of the entire order follows the end of this story.

Under this order the heads of these cabinet level positions; Agriculture, Energy, Health and Human Services, Transportation, Defense and Commerce can take food, livestock, fertilizer, farm equipment, all forms of energy, water resources, all forms of civil transporation (meaning any vehicles, boats, planes),  and any other materials, including construction materials from wherever they are available.  This is probably why the government has been visiting farms with GPS devices, so they know exactly where to go when they turn this one on.

Specifically, the government is allowed to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate.  They decide what necessary or appropriate means.

What happens if the government decides it needs all these things to be prepared, even if there is no war?   You likely won’t be able to walk into a store to purchase virtually anything because it will all be requisitioned, “rationed” and controlled by the government. 

Construction materials, food like meat, butter and sugar, anything imported, parts, tires and fuel for vehicles, clothing, etc. will likely become unobtainable, or at least very scarce.  How many things are even made here in the USA any more?

A bit of history…  During WWII, price stabilization didn’t begin until May of 1942, which froze prices on nearly all every day goods and rationing started in 1943.  Why would the government want to control everything before a war?

As long as obama and his cronies can keep a large amount of Americans ignorant and illiterate plus dependent on his handouts and freebies, communism will be here to stay. By the way, get one of his free phones, the ads are politically directed towards reelecting obama, and we pay for this. People wake up. If you cant do your part to keep this nation free, get the hell out.
