Barack Obama - #3743 - "National Defense Resource Preparedness" Executive Order: Power Grab or Mere Update? - Hot Air (2) New Obama Executive Order Not a 'Power Grab' to Nationalize Everything - American Thinker (3) Another Viewpoint: The Executive Order Controversy - American Thinker

ALTHOUGH OBAMA IS CAPABLE OF ANYTHING,  IN RESPONSE TO EMAILS AND PHONE CALLS I HAVE RECEIVED REGARDING THIS ORDER I FIRST SAW FRIDAY NIGHT, I AM POSTING THESE ARTICLES AND THOROUGH ANALYSIS BY HOT AIR AND AMERICAN THINKER.   THESE ARE WEB SITES I TRUST FOR ACCURATE INFORMATION, AND AT THIS POINT THEY ARE NOT CONCERNED. Please read all the way to end as there are 6 Updates to the original article.   
We’re getting a lot of e-mail this weekend about an executive order issued on Friday afternoon by President Obama titled “National Defense Resources Preparedness.” While the timing of the EO is curious — why send it out on a Friday afternoon when an administration is usually trying to sneak bad news past the media? — the general impact of it is negligible. This EO simply updates another EO (12919) that had been in place since June 1994, and amended several times since...........Again, this is almost identical to EO 12919 from 18 years earlier. Note what this EO specifically orders: identify, assess, be prepared, improve, foster cooperation. None of these items claim authority to seize private property and place them at the personal disposal of Obama. What follows after Section 103 are the directives for implementing these rather analytical tasks, mostly in the form of explicit delegations of presidential authority to Cabinet members and others in the executive branch.  Why the update? If one takes a look at EO 12919, the big change is in the Cabinet itself. In 1994, we didn’t have a Department of Homeland Security, for instance, and some of these functions would naturally fall to DHS. In EO 12919, the FEMA director had those responsibilities, and the biggest change between the two is the removal of several references to FEMA (ten in all). Otherwise, there aren’t a lot of changes between the two EOs, which looks mainly like boilerplate.  Read more............

New Obama Executive Order Not a 'Power Grab' to Nationalize Everything - American Thinker........A new Executive Order by President Obama released on Friday has some people blowing a gasket, describing it variously as a "power grab" to take over the American economy or a measure to give the president the authority to declare martial law for little or no reason. Read more.........

Another Viewpoint: The Executive Order Controversy - American Thinker - ............By employing repetitive reporting of "uncertainty about the reliability of the presidential election tally" by the major media, compounded by expressions of the same uncertainty by administration officials, the left could install that narrative amongst the segments of the population that pay little or no attention to the day-to-day practice of politics.  Could the NAACP then, with support from the Department of Justice and the administration, make the case to the U.N. that the election was in fact tainted, and subsequently persuade the member nations of the U.N. to declare the election invalid? It is possible, and such a declaration is certain to bring chaos to the streets of every major city in our country, as well as a great deal of smaller ones. To restore order, the president might need to deploy troops. Should the Congress resist the move, the administration might simply appeal to the U.N., which could request/order the deployment of troops by a willing and complicit Secretary Panetta.  And of course, President Obama would simply continue in office, for the sake of stability, until this could all be sorted out.  Perhaps it now makes sense for the administration to have updated an unused executive order, preparing their legal argument and framework for the imposition of peacetime martial law. Liberty, once lost, is seldom regained.  Yes, it is far-fetched, but it is also distressingly possible. The sad fact in America today is that we have a president so disdainful of our foundational law and freedoms as to make the far-fetched seem queasily reasonable.  The timing of this executive order is jarring, even if the specific changes to the order are not. The power it conveys is staggering and cannot be safely entrusted to a single branch of government, much less to a single man. The Congress needs to reassert control over the exercise and implementation of the Defense Production Act before it can be utilized by a power-hungry cabal of leftists eager to fundamentally transform America. There is a door no one has locked, and our home is not secure. Close the door, lock it, and throw away that key.  Read entire article.........  AW: This is only the last part of the article, the first part agrees with the top two articles.
