Obama Executive ‘Order’: US
can seize any person, any resource, any time
March 19, 2012 at 9:03 am
THIS IS DIS-INFO GARBAGE!
From the ariticle;
“President Obama signed an Executive Order for “National Defense” yesterday that claims executive authority to seize all US resources and
persons, including during peacetime, for self-declared “national defense.”
The EO claims power to place any American into military or “allocated” labor use(analysis here and here).”
Yet, when you go to “here and here” you read a bunch of BABBLE! Statements are taken WAY OUT OF CONTEXT and are bent to insinuate things that are
just not true!
For example, in the ATS (which is a dis-info site that routinely hates on Alex Jones) article it states, “On Friday, March 16, Barack Obama signed
the “National Defense Resources Preparedness” Executive Order, authorizing his administration to begin “under both emergency and non-emergency
conditions,” … ” to employ persons of outstanding experience and ability without compensation,” and to retain other individuals and
organizations with specialized knowledge or abilities, or otherwise important to the adminstration.”
It highlights, “without compensation” and suggests that the President or his Scretaries can force people to work without pay, but that is NOT what
the EO says at all! The EO says,
“Sec. 502. Consultants. The head of each agency otherwise delegated functions under this order is delegated the authority of the President under
sections 710(b) and (c) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2160(b), (c), to employ persons of outstanding experience and ability without compensation and to
employ experts, consultants, or organizations. The authority delegated by this section may not be redelegated.”
If you read 710(b) and (c) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2160(b), (c), you can CLEARLY SEE that it is talking about VOLUNTEERS and people within their
areas of expertise being used, without officially being employed by the US government, for a short period of time.
It is NOT about forcing people to work, or using prison labor for anything. Further, if you read the EO in context, you see that what the EO is doing,
is re-delegating the Presidential authority to use 710(b) and (c) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2160(b), (c), to offices underneath the President.
Before, only the President could do it, now a Secretary in his cabinet can do it without needing to go to the President first. And BTW, the President
has had this power, under 710(b) and (c) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2160(b), (c), since 1950, when it was PASSED BY CONGRESS!
Don’t get me wrong, this EO is troublesome in that it delegates Presidential authority to literally dozens of people with no accountability to
anyone, but it does NOT claim the ability to do anything that they cannot already do.
It is further troublesome that attention is again being given to the Selective Service (draft) and its Secretary is given more resources to develop a
new way of drafting people, should a draft order be given, which has NOT been done within this EO, as insisted by Turberville in his analysis.
I think EO’s are unconstitutional, and I believe that the authorities of the President can NOT be delegated to his lowers on his own authority, but
this is not the same as suggesting that the President has control over everything.
DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE on this one!
BTW: Alex last week bashed and accused George Clooney of being "evil" "fake" etc. etc. I just noticed on the website that his guest today will be
Dick Gregory, who was with Clooney when they were arrested for the protest. Can wait to see how Alex dances around and does a 180. Because when it
comes to celebrity, he ALWAYS sucks up, without fail or exception.
