Did you already know that the US is officially under a State of Emergency? Since September 14th, 2001?
Alright, you probably knew that.
Well, under a State of Emergency, your basic rights are subject to being revoked. (And, in a sense, already have been.)
You probably knew that too.
You also knew that a THIRD aircraft carrier is on it’s way to the Persian Gulf?
(Bear with me. I’m leading up to something here.)
Did you know that Friday is always the day that the US administration releases bad news?
With all that in mind, I hope that you’ll forgive me if I’m a bit nervous about why Obama chose to update the “Executive Order — National Defense Resources Preparedness” ON FRIDAY?!
Okay, it’s true. It’s an UPDATE. This isn’t a new document. It was originally drafted in 1958 by Eisenhower and updated by Clinton in 1994 and Bush in 2003.
This executive order is upsetting to many, but we’ve already said that there is a ‘State of Emergency’. So, this shouldn’t be any surprise. Really. If you don’t like this executive order, you need to tell your Congressman and Senator to revoke the ‘State of Emergency’ – which they never should have enacted in the first place. (But, they didn’t ask my opinion, right?)
All of the above should be understood.
Again, why did Obama update this executive order this past Friday?
Is there something going down?

“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.” (The Intel Hub)
While millions of people have been preparing for the possibility of a catastrophic event by relocating to rural homesteads or farms, as well as stockpiling food, water, personal defense armaments and other essential supplies with the intention of utilizing these preparations if the worst happens, the latest executive order signed by President Obama on March 16, 2012 makes clear that in the event of a nationally deemed emergency all of these resources will fall under the authority of the United States government.
The signing of the National Defense Resources Preparedness executive order grants the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Labor, the Department of Defense and other agencies complete control of all US resources, including the ability to seize, confiscate or re-delegate resources, materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense as delegated by the following agencies:
Sec. 201. Priorities and Allocations Authorities. (a)
(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.
(b) The Secretary of each agency delegated authority under subsection (a) of this section (resource departments) shall plan for and issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources and establish standards and procedures by which the authority shall be used to promote the national defense, under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.
The new order provides specific definitions for each of these essential infrastructure elements, indicating that all resources, not just those owned by large farms and businesses, are to be directly controlled by the government. Thus, if you think the investments you made in digging a water well, building a solar array, or stockpiling food were for your own personal use, think again:
