Obama Executive Orders Nationalizing Energy, Food, Water, Everything Else

Executive Order 13603’s “Emergency and Non-Emergency Powers”

One of the most frightening Obama edicts is Executive Order 13603 on “National Defense Resources Preparedness,” issued on March 16, 2012. This executive order is frightening because of its sweeping scope, explicitly declaring that the president and his designated Cabinet and agency heads have authority to commandeer and control:

all water,

all human and animal food,

all transportation,

all energy,

all construction materials,

all “health resources,”

all farm equipment,

all fertilizers,

all fuels,

… and much more.

President Obama declares in Executive Order 13603 his power to carry out these broad usurpations “By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2061 et seq.), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States.”

What should be particularly alarming to Americans is that Executive Order 13603 does not merely claim these powers during war time or during a “national emergency,” but explicitly and repeatedly states that these apply “in peacetime and in times of national emergency.” It further states that this “authority shall be used to promote the national defense, under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.”

    Yeah ... not liking the non-emergency provisions. During a serious emergency I can be a little flexible, but this EO permits the Prez to grab whatever he wants, whenever he wants to.
