I will say this again as I think it bears repeating.

The 2 statutes in question (from the op) specifically deal with foreign nations and foreign governments and not US citizens. Any US citizen involved in any of this would already fall under US Domestic law.

While I wish this was the start of the deep state downfall we need to be realistic and not get our hopes up.



"(c) the term “United States person” means any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States."

Defining "person" specifically suggests that the EO is about degrees of separation. If x took money from y and it was then given to z indirectly, Z goes down regardless of nationality if they have assets in the US or in federal reserve notes. The difference, as I read this, is that current laws give due process to those accused, this bypasses this tradition of cluster#$%ing through lawyers and claims that as a private person they are not responsible. Notice there is new crime added, only penalty of losing it all if they can tie to corruption, that word is the key here, not human rights blah blah. Corruption is spelled out, in the "I know it when I see it" way.

The real issue is to understand two very fundamental aspect of the US, Separation of Powers and Public Law Vs. Private Law and how this factors into crimes. My reading of this is it seeks to bypass that problem, and gives the SOT the capacity and power to follow the money and take it without regard to due process. The government has the right, through public law, to take what is theirs and Federal Reserve Notes are theirs, they can take them at any time without reason in the same way you can take the car you loaned to a friend without reason given. Corruption falls under Public law.

Whether this can play out is another story, but as I read this he has given people not plagued with bribes and kickbacks, politics etc. the power to follow the money and take it without regard to previous laws. What is most fascinating, if it plays out, is how X will deal with waking up with no money. Are they going to CNN to do an interview claiming the money they got in bribes has been take by the SOT and they want it back? If they have no money for lawyers (useless anyway) how are they going to get it back? Frankly I'd rather have them all bust, then taking more energy, more tv time, more print ink, more table talk being tried over decades. Civil Asset Forfeiture is a bitch...

Yeah, but did you actually read the OP?

It looks like Trump is going after corrupt politicians


Not really. He can't shake things up too much without Trump University being brought up again, or His other bankruptcies that amount to the GDP of some third world nations.
Saying "locker room talk" isn't going to save him the next round of that also.



Ahhh none of that has anything to do with corrupt politicians..is that why it would be brought up?

Trump is using EOs to spread the net that will ensnare the corrupt & self-serving politicians ... since the Uranium One scheme was foisted on the People


that's what the 'national Emergency' is framed around... Trump is setting up a Chess-game strategy For 'Catching' the Left/Progressive/Communists of the last few Administrations...that's what the OPs excerpts are targeting ~~ the Bad Apples

While belief in mega anon, or q anon is questionable to say the least. I do find the recent post by mega anon to be interesting and thought provoking on this topic of asset seizure. It would seem that whomever or whatever mega anon is, reads the EO the same way as I. As well as my thought that the EO was done AFTER the process was put in place and was released on Tax reform day to bury it on purpose.

December 21 HERE WE GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Haha! You're right in many ways!! Guess what? The Swamp's financials FROZE OVER while they all slept last night, y'all.

It's gonna be a LOOOOOONG Christmas break for them... they were all broke before sunrise. ;o)

December 21 HAPPENING: NEW TRUMP EO

Their swamps were frozen before sunrise, y'all. Now we'll get to watch them squirm through the holidays. By January 2nd, these people won't even recognize DC.

I'd like but I recall some provision against liking to another site so dig around...

Hoping that this is the foundation to seize all assets of The Clinton Foundation.

Dream on. This measure was drafted by career bureaucrats in the State and Treasury Departments.

From your interest stated in the OP, what came to mind for me was the fact we have been trading favors with other countries such as Russia and China, the Saudis with American Soil. Properties and Land even water and mineral right grabs including our very own National parks and other well-known areas perfect for BIG Agriculture in the future. It also occurred to me how we have watched profiteers make out like bandits as the American life and liberties dwindle and the Golden parachutes of the Clinton/Bush eras were the real shock and awe to anyone paying attention. And also remember the contractors like Haliburton and the "Secret" contractors supposedly not under Government authority to clean up the worst disaster in US history The BP Spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Hence the 2 statutes apply to foreign persons outside the United States.

A law cannot remove due process / deny due process for a person in the United states. That has been reinforced by SCOTUS rulings dealing with the NDAA in addition to a myriad of other cases throughout the decades / centuries.

I agree that it's a sign of things to come, given how quietly it was signed and the way that CNN and the MSM made ZERO mention of it as far as I know.

It reminds me of something that Jesus said about first binding the "strong man" (devil or devilish system) and then pilfering his house of all his treasure.

2018 will be an interesting year and an interesting struggle in the public square.

I'd like to see some true and authentic sandals involving the so-called "elite" "ruling class".

Praying for Trump's safety.

He needs to stop acting like a petulant child and take on the full authority of the Presidency - in order to get the damn swamp drained, and to save the children.

Godspeed Mr. Trump. Godspeed ie: go fast and get it done under the protection and care of God almighty.

If he’s going after corrupt politicians then hopefully this means that he will be resigning soon.

Looking at the list and response from Putin (Oh please don't throw me in the briar patch) , it appears to be a dog's dinner of bad boys and girls who have been controlling illicit money laundering and influence...more of an Interpol/UN left wing NGO wish list. Good move by Trump, but nothing that shouldn't have been happening already......really positive move on it's face.

Yellowstone suddenly erupting would be an actual National Emergency.
A flu epidemic with a higher than normal rate of fatality would be an actual National Emergency.
A stock market crash & ensuing economic chaos would be an actual National Emergency.
A fricking EMP over every major city knocking us out of commission would be a an actual National Emergency.

This is not a national emergency, it's just asset freezes trying to smoke out any rats that may be in the woodwork.

I think people are getting hung up on the words national emergency. It is nothing more than a legal phrase used for the law in question. Read through some other EO's and you will see the same thing.

It is a legal phrase yes and there are maybe 30 or so ongoing nation emergencies in the USA. Now answer this this. The others where reported on the msm. This one was not. Why?

They all were reported. It is not the job of the White House to tell media to cover an executive order.

Secondly the EO's are announced and listed on the White House website.

Third the EO is not major news as all it does is refocus the priorities of this administration over that of the Obama administration. In case you didnt notice or are unaware it happens when new Presidents are elected. Obama did the same thing when he took office, just as Bush did and Clinton did as bush did as Reagan did etc etc etc.

What exactly is your concern?
