This Executive Order was posted on the WhiteHouse.gov
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.



UPDATE: BIN reader Kent Welton writes: This allows for the giving
away of USA assets and subsidies to private companies: “(b) provide
for the modification or expansion of privately owned facilities,
including the modification or improvement of production processes, when
taking actions under sections 301, 302, or 303 of the Act, 50 U.S.C.
App. 2091, 2092, 2093; and (c) sell or otherwise transfer equipment
owned by the Federal Government and installed under section 303(e) of
the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2093(e), to the owners of such plants,
factories, or other industrial facilities.”



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?



Here’s what some gas ration cards looked like during WWII. Will
there be rationing under this kind of system? What better way to
control the movement and actions of the populace…



WWII era gas ration cards via Old Chester PA. You couldn’t go on vacation without a “vacation pass”.



Under this new Executive Order, cabinet heads are authorized to loan
money, offer loan guarantees and even subsidize payments at above market
rates (no bid contracts?) for whatever they need. This could make
Solyndra or Halliburton look like Junior Achievement. Nothing like a
war will generate these kinds of huge profits for the corporate
“partners” and you can bet the bankers and contractors are already
lining up for this one—because under this order no war is even required!



In a crisis situation, the government will be able to take whatever
they need, print money to get whatever they want and distribute it as
they see fit….for the benefit of a “war effort” or the politically
connected corporations and individuals. All other contracts except
those for employment are superseded by this executive order, it’s all
here in black and white.



Specifically, it orders:



“to require acceptance and priority performance of contracts or
orders (other than contracts of employment) to promote the national
defense over performance of any other contracts or orders, and to
allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or
appropriate to promote the national defense, is delegated to the
following agency heads:



  1. the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources,
    food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources,
    plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment
    and commercial fertilizer;
  2. the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;
  3. the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources;
  4. the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;
  5. the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and
  6. the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials.

About all I can say is “Have a nice day!”

    This has the makings of something very bad for America...
    if he tries to cancel the elections in November, I think there could be a serious revolution.

    I had heard this before and I know that other presidents have updated and/or passed similar bills in the unlikely event that we become involved in some worldwide war. In a case like that, we would need all the resources we could muster just as in WWII.
    I am not jumping to any conclusions about this as some people seem want to do.
    I sincerely doubt that there are any plans for the Obama administration to take over civilian interests and prepare for war or civil uprisings anytime soon.

    He's either power grabbing,

    or is trying to crash the economy to assure, he will get a second term...

    I already knew. Now, I'll put it back on you: Did you know that Clinton signed a very similar executive order, 20 years ago or so?

    Obama's such an incompetent bozo, he didn't even realize that he already had the powers he was attempting to seize, simply because Clinton already signed it.

    As am I. It's only a matter of time before the POTUS institutes martial law and orders the military to collect entire families and send them to fully operational detention facilities. This would be the line in the sand that would send many Americans to take up arms against its own government.

    and have asked several times if people understand the difference between a RIGHT and a privilege becasue we will lose all privileges first such a the use of our cars and public transport and VOTING and then once all those are gone we will start to lose our rights in teh name of regaining some privileges....

    I wonder when they will start pushing for limiting gun ownership more...soon I think after the masses re-elect him? (I would hope not BUT he did get elected IN in the first place..)
