Executive Order:

http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/03/16/executive-order-national-defense-resources-preparedness

Sec. 201. Priorities and Allocations Authorities. (a) The authority of the President conferred by section 101 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2071, 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;

In a stunning move, on March 16, 2012, Barack Obama signed an Executive Order stating that the President and his specifically designated Secretaries now have the authority to commandeer all domestic U.S. resources including food and water. The EO also states that the President and his Secretaries have the authority to seize all transportation, energy, and infrastructure inside the United States as well as forcibly induct/draft American citizens into the military. The EO also contains a vague reference in regards to harnessing American citizens to fulfill “labor requirements” for the purposes of national defense.


Not only that, but the authority claimed inside the EO does not only apply to National Emergencies and times of war. It also applies in peacetime.

This, coupled with the announcement that the President has the right to be Judge, Jury, and Executioner of U.S. citizens with no "Due" or "Judicial" process is shocking and should be a wake-up call for all Liberals & Democrats alike.

The Defense Production Act (Pub.L. 81-774) is a United States law enacted on September 8, 1950, in response to the start of the Korean War. It was part of a broad civil defense and war mobilization effort in the context of the Cold War. Its implementing regulations, the Defense Priorities and Allocation System (DPAS), are located at 15 CFR §§700 to 700.93. The Act has been periodically reauthorized and amended, and remains in force as of 2012.

The Act contains three major sections. The first authorizes the President to require businesses to sign contracts or fulfill orders deemed necessary for national defense. The second authorizes the President to establish mechanisms (such as regulations, orders or agencies) to allocate materials, services and facilities to promote national defense. The third section authorizes the President to control the civilian economy so that scarce and/or critical materials necessary to the national defense effort are available for defense needs.

The Act also authorizes the President to requisition property, force industry to expand production and the supply of basic resources, impose wage and price controls, settle labor disputes, control consumer and real estate credit, establish contractual priorities, and allocate raw materials to aid the national defense.

The President's authority to place contracts under the DPA is the part of the Act most often used by the Department of Defense (DOD) since the 1970s. Most of the other functions of the Act are administered by the Office of Strategic Industries and Economic Security (SIES) in the Bureau of Industry and Security in the Department of Commerce.

Korean War-era usage
The DPA was used during the Korean War to establish a large defense mobilization infrastructure and bureaucracy. Under the authority of the Act, President Harry S. Truman established the Office of Defense Mobilization, instituted wage and price controls, strictly regulated production in heavy industries such as steel and mining, and ordered the disperal of wartime manufacturing plans across the nation.

The Act also played a vital role in the establishment of the domestic aluminum and titanium industries in the 1950s. Using the Act, DOD provided capital and interest-free loans, and directed mining and manufacturing resources as well as skilled laborers to these two processing industries.

Use as innovation tool
Beginning in the 1980s, DOD began using the contracting and spending provisions of the DPA to provide seed money to develop new technologies. Using the Act, DOD has helped to develop a number of new technologies and materials, including silicon carbide ceramics, indium phosphide and gallium arsenide semiconductors, microwave power tubes, radiation-hardened microelectronics, superconducting wire, and metal composites.

On August 16, 2011, President Barack Obama announced an interagency initiative between the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Energy and Navy to use the DPA to stimulate commercialization and production of advanced drop-in biofuels.

The Congressional Authority was given the President 62 years ago- and the Act has been in existence and amended as needed since that time....

So.........if it has been in existence so long, why the sudden interest in including all Dept heads in it's implementation during peacetime?

In fact, why bring it up at all? Especially if he already had the authority?

I think you know the answer. If you don't, you are more stupid than we could have ever imagined......................... :roll: :roll: :roll:
DPA authorities are not permanent. Rather, they are time-limited, undergoing periodic
amendment and reauthorization. Of the seven titles contained within the original Act, four have
been repealed.

Really go read the NEW EO and see what is different and remember that leon panetta said they can decide what to do without congress approval.
Come on OT can you not see the writting on the wall or do you but feel you cant admit it here? I pray you have done what you can to protect your family in the coming months....or do you think being such a good defender you will be excluded and allowed to live the same as you are now?

Many of these actions have taken place several times before- when the President acted alone just on his authority...Lincoln during the Civil War confiscated/rationed many necessities/goods and took over the rail system-- again in WWI and WWII- along with the Great Depression... FDR probably went the furthest during WWII... I guess Congress thought there should be a law authorizing it...

Like I said- many of these laws often need amending to update to the changing makeup of government- and technology- and this one has previously been updated- so a new update does not surprise me...We have many new agencies that did not exist in 1950...
That is the main reason I'm not wetting down my leg with thoughts of it being a major conspiracy.... :wink:

This particular Executive Order implements and authorizes tactics and subjects not authorized by Congress.

There's no conspiracy whatsoever, it's all there in front of us and out in the open.

If Bush had issued this order, you would be screaming to high heaven and hollering about the "Constitution".

Are you really as stupid as you seem?????? :roll:

Obama Executive Order would seize US infrastructure, citizens for nat'l defense
By Joe Newby, Spokane Conservative Examiner
..

On Friday, President Obama signed a sweeping Executive Order that would effectively nationalize everything - including food, water and U.S. citizens - in order to prepare for national defense.

Worse yet, the order would also allow for a civilian draft - the conscription of “persons of outstanding experience or ability” without compensation.

A post at Current.com adds:


The EO also states that the President and his Secretaries have the authority to seize all transportation, energy, and infrastructure inside the United States as well as forcibly induct/draft American citizens into the military. The EO also contains a vague reference in regards to harnessing American citizens to fulfill “labor requirements” for the purposes of national defense.

Not only that, but the authority claimed inside the EO does not only apply to National Emergencies and times of war. It also applies in peacetime.





"The National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order exploits the “authority” granted to the President in the Defense Production Act of 1950 in order to assert that virtually every means of human survival is now available for confiscation and control by the President via his and his Secretaries’ whim," Current notes.

Oddly enough, the order does not say these are actions to be taken “in the event of a national emergency.” Instead, it uses the term “purposes of national defense.”
Under the section dealing with labor, the order says:


Sec. 601. Secretary of Labor. (a) The Secretary of Labor, in coordination with the Secretary of Defense and the heads of other agencies, as deemed appropriate by the Secretary of Labor, shall:

(1) collect and maintain data necessary to make a continuing appraisal of the Nation's workforce needs for purposes of national defense;

(2) upon request by the Director of Selective Service, and in coordination with the Secretary of Defense, assist the Director of Selective Service in development of policies regulating the induction and deferment of persons for duty in the armed services;

(3) upon request from the head of an agency with authority under this order, consult with that agency with respect to: (i) the effect of contemplated actions on labor demand and utilization; (ii) the relation of labor demand to materials and facilities requirements; and (iii) such other matters as will assist in making the exercise of priority and allocations functions consistent with effective utilization and distribution of labor;

In order to prevent shortfalls in resources, the order also gives various cabinet-level secretaries the authority "to guarantee loans by private institutions," and gives the Treasury Secretary and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget complete authority to set terms, interest rates and maximum amounts to be paid.

If you think you can move to a farm in the country in order to escape the long arm of the regime, think again.

According to the "Definitions" section of the order, absolutely everything - including farm equipment, all food, water and medicine, energy, fertilizer and all forms of "civil transportation" - would be seized by the government. Even repair parts for farm equipment would fall under government jurisdiction.

The order does note, however, that "'[c]ivil transportation' shall not include transportation owned or controlled by the Department of Defense, use of petroleum and gas pipelines, and coal slurry pipelines used only to supply energy production facilities directly."

'Energy, for example, is defined as: "...all forms of energy including petroleum, gas (both natural and manufactured), electricity, solid fuels (including all forms of coal, coke, coal chemicals, coal liquification, and coal gasification), solar, wind, other types of renewable energy, atomic energy, and the production, conservation, use, control, and distribution (including pipelines) of all of these forms of energy."

The post at Current asks:


Nevertheless, some have no doubt begun to wonder why the President has signed such an order. Not only that, but why did he sign the order now? Is it because of the looming war with Iran or the Third World War that will likely result from such a conflict? Is it because of the ticking time bomb called the economy that is only one jittery move or trade deal away from total disintegration? Is it because of a growing sense of hatred of their government amongst the general public? Is there a coming natural disaster of which we are unaware? Are there plans for martial law?

Finance Examiner Kenneth Schortgen, Jr., notes that previous administrations have taken actions limiting individual rights in the past. During the Civil War, President Lincoln suspended Habeus Corpus and Woodrow Wilson used an Executive Order giving him authority "over businesses, industry, transportation, food, and other economic policies" during World War 1.

"In both cases," Schortgen wrote, "it was only after the death of each President that full Constitutional powers were restored to the citizens of the United States."

This order, however, goes far beyond what either Lincoln or Wilson did, and if invoked, would basically turn the United States into a totalitarian regime with Obama as its dictator.

Delta Sigma Phi Auburn University


http://www.phigam.org/Document.Doc?id=353


October 2001, Auburn University - Photographs from separate Halloween parties sponsored by Beta Theta Pi and Delta Sigma Phi appeared on a Web site. Beta Theta Pi members were dressed in Omega Psi Phi (a historically African-American fraternity) paraphernalia with their faces and bodies painted black. A Delta Sigma Phi party member was dressed in a Ku Klux Klan hood and sheets and another member was clothed in mock FUBU (a clothing line popular among African-Americans) with a noose around his neck. Other fraternity members posed holding rifles to the “black” man with a Confederate battle flag in the background. The University suspended both chapters and 15 students. Both chapters were suspended by their national organizations. A county judge subsequently ordered the University to reinstate the students. The University settled a lawsuit filed by Beta Theta Pi, allowing the fraternity back on campus (Washington Times, Chronicle of Higher Education).



October 1998, Auburn University - Five Pi Kappa Alpha members came to a Halloween party dressed in Ku Klux Klan regalia. The chapter placed the members on social probation

President Obama now trails former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum by four points in a hypothetical 2012 matchup in combined polling of key swing states Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia. The president continues to hold a modest lead in those states.

Bush 41 changed it in preparation for the Persian Gulf War,.

Jan. 9 1991

President Bush, preparing for possible war in the Persian Gulf, Wednesday issued an executive order giving the government authority to get priority delivery of any needed food or industrial material.

"The United States must have the capability to rapidly mobilize its resources in the interest of national security,"

In the executive order on "National Security Industrial Responsiveness,"Bush declared, "to achieve prompt delivery of articles, products and materials to meet national security requirements, the government may place orders and require priority performance of these orders."

Bush invoked authority under the Defense Production Act of 1950. It gives the government authority to claim first priority on the nation's productions of a wide range of products, from oil to trucks to machinery.

He instructed federal departments and agencies to amend their rules and regulations to reflect the new authorities.

it appears Clinton updated it to include FEMA...

and through terrorist attacks and two wars it sat unchanged...

if it changes nothing.. then maybe the liberals can explain why it was even changed.

did Obama just change it for the sake of his ego?

it was last updated 19 years ago by President Clinton... and he like his predecessors gave a rationale for the updates...

if it was meant to be another warning shot as Bush 41 used it.. then it would have been public,. and done to insure the Iranians understood their time was limited..

or is it just another distraction from all Obama's other worse news and fumbles.. or is Obama making plans for something worse..


for this to be part of a Friday night information dump,.. is odd timing...
