ASSIGNMENT OF NATIONAL SECURITY AND
EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS COMMUNICATIONS FUNCTIONS
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. Policy. The Federal Government must have the ability to communicate at all times and under all circumstances to carry out its most critical and time sensitive missions. Survivable, resilient, enduring, and effective communications, both domestic and international, are essential to enable the executive branch to communicate within itself and with: the leg
(f) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person. BARACK OBAMA

after 11 years the greatest communication breakdown since pearl harbor the Gov. now decides it need to have total control over ALL communications?
too little too late I am afraid. whats hiding in this vague Assignment is Total electronic control over every US citizen.
I for one am glad they are thinking of my safety and I know when Obama shuts civilian communication down it will be for our protection. who needs to vote when you have such a loving big brother taking care of it.

Ah. I was afraid it was something like that. I don't know--I don't think we're at that point yet. For one thing, I think they'll need to disarm us first.
Anyway, I think a previous EO already claimed sufficient government ownership and control of everything that's worth having, short of our immortal souls. Of course, claiming it and being able to take it are two different things....
And why has Obama waited until right this very second to issue this new EO?
Again, WHY all of a Sudden right now????
They seem to use the magic word "intent" loosely.
People should be afraid of them "doing it anyway" and see what happens after the damage is already done.
* EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.
* EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months.
