This Executive Order was just released by the White House on March 16th. “He” has granted himself unlimited powers in a time of “national emergency” of which he self-defines! VERY SCARY. This is Atlas Shrugged moving from the tomes of fiction to the front page of tomorrow’s newspapers. I’m sure he will consider the situation with Afghanistan and Iran as “national emergencies,” thus leaving him free reign to take over production, energy, resources, and labor in any way he and his fellow criminals see fit. Wait until you read just what he can now do in the name of a self-proclaimed national emergency!
BEWARE. It’s coming. Can’t say we weren’t warned! Where are our government’s checks and balances now? We have none when it comes to an executive order.
As dry and obfuscated as this is, you probably need to read it all the way through. Much of this is a rehash of claims to authorities made by previous Presidents under a series of Executive Orders collectively called the FEMO E.O.s.
So, has the President taken over the country? Technically, no. What this order states is that the President will be prepared to take over the nation in the event of a National Emergency, but again, this is not a new concept as it already occurs in prior E.O.s.
Part II assigns direct control over the nation's assets to various cabinet positions under that national emergency, but again this is merely a clarification of earlier power-grabs.
So, why now, and for what reason?
Although couched in terms of National Defense, I take special note of Part III, which sets forth several fiscal authorities not previously mentioned in the earlier Presidential E.O.s. The authorities set forth include direct purchase by the government of assets, loans and loan guarantees, subsidy payments, and so forth. These are normally authorities which would originate in legislation in the House, as they involve spending. The end result of this E.O. is that Obama is usurping the spending authority of the U.S. House of Representatives. So, while presented as a proactive plan to deal with the coming invasion of Iran, Part III suggests that the real purpose of this E.O. is to prepare for the coming collapse of Greece and the E.U. by transferring spending authority to the White House ahead of the collapse of the dollar.
The additional following documentation is submitted to demonstrate to a candid public, that our governing officials have systematically positioned themselves to be at an advantage over an unwitting public, should the conditions present themselves, to convince the American people, that a “police state” is necessary to handle a perceived “National Crisis”. These documents demonstrate the facilitation of dictatorial powers under that condition, and are repugnant to the authorities present within the principles of our Republic, and threaten to dismantle the freedoms and liberties we enjoy, and are accustomed to:
NSPD 51 and Supporting Documents
The document NSPD 51 (or HSPD 51) was posted at the White House on May 9, 2007 by President George W Bush Jr., but was only partly declassified, and only partly presented to the press… Once Congress gave its approval to the President in the wake of the 9/11 event, and the Office of Homeland Security was established, this document gave wide sweeping powers to, not only the Office of Homeland Security, but also to the President of the United States in times of “National Emergencies”… not even the Congress of the United States was authorized to review the remainder of the “Presidential Directive Decision” (PDD) which was classified as “Top Secret”… in late 2007 the Director of Homeland Security at the time thinking that his powers during National Emergencies were equal to that of the Presidents, demanded to review the rest of PDD 51 for clarification, and was denied by President Bush, who insisted that the document was only reviewable by those in Congress with the highest of security clearances, and who presided over the proper National Security committees, and he insisted that those officials were already privy to its contents, and he denied the Directors request. This “Directive” gives “absolute dictatorial powers” to the President of the United States and consolidates a myriad of other Executive Orders that deploy a “Police State” that is without Legislative or Judicial review, and contains no provisions for discontinuation should the President choose to continue it indefinitely You can find this document at the following web address in PDF form:

Council of Governors
Obama’s “Council of Governors” Executive Order, January 11, 2010, takes advantage of PDD 51′s provisions of conferred dictatorial powers, and provides for the federalizing of a group of 10 Governors that will assist the various Czars of National Security provided for in the E.O. and the President of the United States in implementing the “Police State” over the United States under the conditions of “National Emergency”, when it is determined that “Martial Law” must be implemented… PDD 51 gives the President absolute dictatorial power during those times, with the suspension of the Constitution, and no Legislative or Judicial review of such a condition, until such time as the President should decide to allow it… Something to be strongly noted here, and that is, that there are no provisions in the Constitution that allows for the federalization of any State Official by the Federal Government, and that makes this Executive Order unconstitutional. This illegal seizure of power is being implemented under the auspices and provisions of a government policy called “Continuity of Government” which can now provide for a bunch of Organized Crime Lords that run our Government, and they will be interested in one thing only… preserving absolute control over the masses, and securing their future for generations to come. You can find this document at the following web address:
Authorizes without Judicial or Legislative oversight, electronic surveillance… warrantless and roving wiretaps… warrantless and roving interception of voice mails and text messaging… authorizes federal authorities to undertake warrantless “sneak peek” searches, allowing for the provision of “fishing expeditions”… authorizes federal authorities to provide “hand written” warrants absent of a sworn affidavit under penalty of perjury of an accusation… contains provisions for “guilt by association”, and broadens the characterization of the terms “belligerent” and “combatant” to reflect a broad scope of meaning applicable to even “law abiding” citizens… was amended in 2004 to prevent meaningful Judicial review due to internet service providers contesting the release of confidential communications after a 2003 declaration by the federal courts declaring it “unconstitutional”… provides for “indefinite detention” based upon “secret evidence”… allows for incarceration without the basic “due process” provided for by the Constitution… allows for detention based upon “suspicion”… and the list goes on…

Military Commissions Act of 2006
Suspended habeas corpus allowing the president to declare you an ‘enemy combatant’ and end your rights to seek legal or judicial relief from unlawful imprisonment.
John Warner National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2007
Essentially eliminates the protections of the Posse Comitatus Act and re-wrote the Insurrection Act. The NDAA will allow the president to declare a ‘public emergency’ and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities and against constitutional authority, in order to ‘suppress public disorder’.
Global Governance 2025
The United States “National Intelligence Council” (NIC) and the European Union’s Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) have joined forces to produce this assessment of the long-term prospects for global governance frameworks. This exercise builds on the experience of the two institutions in identifying the key trends important to shaping a future international system that establishes Global Governance by the year 2025.
MIAC Report (Missouri Information and Analysis Center)
The MIAC was relatively unknown until March 13, 2009, when a leaked report entitled “The Modern Militia Movement,” originating from MIAC, appeared on Wikileaks, and subsequently on Infowars.com. Subsequent investigation was spearheaded by the Liberty Restoration Project out of Kansas City, Missouri. The report detailed trends in militia and terrorist activity in Missouri and described common symbols and media associated with militia members and domestic terrorists, in order to help police identify them. The report as leaked included suggestions that political bumper stickers such as those for U.S. Rep. Ron Paul could be used to identify militia members and terrorists. The authenticity of the report was confirmed by Lt. John Hotz, the Assistant Director of the Public Information and Education Division of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, who claims that the report is derived purely from publicly available trend data on militias.
As of MARCH 27, 2009 the entire report was scrapped and letters of apology were sent to Ron Paul, Bob Barr and Chuck Baldwin. Legislation was passed in Missouri which included an amendment to cut funding to the MIAC should it again engage in political profiling, and the director of the MIAC was reassigned.

3/17/2012 Obama Executive Order: Peacetime Martial Law! (LOCAL)
H.R. 1540 (NDAA for FY 2012) has been submitted for Ovomit's signature. Section 1021(e) was requested by Ovomit. It gives him discretionary authority to invoke indefinite detention by the military and does not specifically exclude US citizens (p. 265). Section 1022(b)(1) specifically excludes US citizens from mandatory indefinite detention by the military (p. 266). http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS...-112hr1540enr/pdf/BILLS-112hr1540enr.pdf Given Ovomit's blatant anti-American insurgency, this law's illegality, and the legislative intent spoken to by several members of Congress, our nation is in peril.

National Archives Federal Register address:
When reviewing these Executive Orders, you will observe that they were issued at various dates and times, and by various Presidents. If you should choose to review these E.O.’s at the National Archive website provided above, you will see that there is an extensive history attached to each that reveals what E.O. revoked the former E.O., and then which E.O. replaced the former, or modified it to reflect further emendations by the current administration, thereby bringing it up to date and extending its powers (or limiting it) and extensions of authority into future administrations.
All of these Executive Orders, although they are currently “sleeper” executive orders, or “standby” executive orders, have been extended by previous administrations and are currently active, and can sometimes be found under new E.O.’s, and have been consolidated for implementation under the provisions of Presidential Directive Decision 51 (NSPD 51/HSPD 51), which makes use of them under the auspices of “Continuity in Government” policy:
EXECUTIVE ORDER 12148 created the Federal Emergency Management Agency that is to interface with the Department of Defense for civil defense planning and funding. An “emergency czar” was appointed. FEMA has only spent about 6 percent of its budget on national emergencies. The bulk of their funding has been used for the construction of secret underground facilities to assure continuity of government in case of a major emergency, foreign or domestic.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 12656 appoints the National Security Council as the principal body that should consider emergency powers. This allows the government to increase domestic intelligence and surveillance of U.S. citizens and would restrict the freedom of movement within the United States and grant the government the right to isolate large groups of civilians. The National Guard could be federalized to seal all borders and take control of U.S. air space and all ports of entry. Here are just a few Executive Orders associated with FEMA that would suspend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. These Executive Orders have been on record for nearly 30 years and could be enacted by the stroke of a Presidential pen:

It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has broad powers in every aspect of the nation. http://www.cloud9tn.com/?p=82
