Washington, D.C.--(ENEWSPF)--January 11, 2010. The President today signed an Executive Order establishing a Council of Governors to strengthen further the partnership between the Federal Government and State Governments to protect our Nation against all types of hazards. When appointed, the Council will be reviewing such matters as involving the National Guard of the various States; homeland defense; civil support; synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States; and other matters of mutual interest pertaining to National Guard, homeland defense, and civil support activities.

The bipartisan Council will be composed of ten State Governors who will be selected by the President to serve two year terms. In selecting the Governors to the Council, the White House will solicit input from Governors and Governors’ associations. Once chosen, the Council will have no more than five members from the same party and represent the Nation as a whole.

Federal members of the Council include the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, the Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement, the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Americas’ Security Affairs, the U.S. Northern Command Commander, the Commandant of the Coast Guard, and the Chief of the National Guard Bureau. The Secretary of Defense will designate an Executive Director for the Council.

The Council of Governors will provide an invaluable Senior Administration forum for exchanging views with State and local officials on strengthening our National resilience and the homeland defense and civil support challenges facing our Nation today and in the future.

The formation of the Council of Governors was required by the Fiscal Year 2008 National Defense Authorization Act which stated, “The President shall establish a bipartisan Council of Governors to advise the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the White House Homeland Security Council on matters related to the National Guard and civil support missions.” (NDAA FY2008, Sec 1822)

Neither, what makes you think that?

If you had read the press release you would have seen "The Council of Governors will provide an invaluable Senior Administration forum for exchanging views with State and local officials"

so it is just a forum for exchanging ideas

Very important development people! Not that this is definitely a bad thing, but it sure does need to be checked out to ascertain the true intentions and ramifications of it.

Yes, this reeks of trying to by-pass the 10th amendment. Obama doesn't like the fact that the states have so much power.

You could be right, but, I see it as a further integration of Central Power.

How will they choose who serves on this ~Council~?

I have a lot more questions at this point.

What does this .Gov legalese double talk REALLY mean?

Always look for the loop holes...

Try reading the press release! It is explained there...."The bipartisan Council will be composed of ten State Governors who will be selected by the President to serve two year terms.

The Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement

Another ~Bureau~ no one ever heard of... and ~Engagement~...sounds like a Military term used on a Battlefield...to me at least, and notice not a peep from the Big MSM on this?

...And if it's for a future disaster why no mention of FEMA?

ETA: Well 4 of the top 4 in the ~Bureau~ are from Chicago...surprise!

Yes, lets go with what you say and everything will be OK! The Fed. Govt. is only for good and will never harm or take advantage of our citizens.

Seriously folks. All these Obamanites speak a different language than most. I think it's call Moronise.


Obama needs to stay the hell out of our states! Period!
If he wants to use an Executive order, than why don't he grow some balls and use the one by JFK, 11110

This could very well be some advance planning to deal with the looming resistance on the state level if Obamacare actually passes. I think at least 13 states will challenge the constitutionality of this mess if it presses through. That number is sure to grow because Obamacare is poised to financially destroy some key states. California being one of those.

Is Obama trying to force the states into his lap? We'll have to wait and see. Every move Obama makes like this has been highly calculated in advance. "If this, then that"

Everything seems to link back to Obamacare these days. This is clearly Obama's purpose.

Your spot on Hx3! Another Bureau, to represent the states, appointed by the Feds? Sounds like a means to sneak by a power grab.

I was not aware that nearly all of the 10 Council were military officers.



The mechanisms for martial law and dissoluting the United States have been put to good use when by executive order, a Council of Ten Governors [Operation Garden Plot style] was established by Obama on January 11, 2010. All of the appointed officials are for the most part military officers:

Federal members of the Council include the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, the Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement, the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Americas’ Security Affairs, the U.S. Northern Command Commander, the Commandant of the Coast Guard, and the Chief of the National Guard Bureau. The Secretary of Defense will designate an Executive Director for the Council.

The takeover of state and local government to break up into regions in a national 'emergency' would occur during time of war or disaster
