I have seen several posts regarding Obama's executive orders. I believe this disinformation is originating from a viral e-mail going around. Excerpt
There have been over 900 Executive Orders put forth from Obama, and he is not even through his first term yet. He is creating a martial law
‘Disney Land’ of control covering everything imaginable. Some of the executive orders he has signed recently have been exposed thanks to
‘Friends of Conservative Action Alerts.’ They have compiled a choice list of ‘Emergency Powers, Martial law executive orders’: Get your
headache medication out while you still can without a prescription.
When a co-worker of mine started freaking out over this e-mail, it immediately set off some red flags. I already knew that the numbers for our last
few presidents were way too low (by hundreds), and it sounded fishy to me. With a quick internet search on my phone, I was able to prove my point.
Q: Has President Barack Obama signed 900 executive orders, some of which create martial law?
A: No. Obama’s executive orders do not create martial law. And so far he has signed 139 executive orders — not 900.
The full analysis is on the link above, going over the e-mail point by point. Every single thing can be verified at other sites, and was a very well
done analysis. I just wanted to bring this to the attention of those freaking out that the sky is falling when there is absolutely nothing valid about
that e-mail. I would think by now people would learn to distrust viral e-mails. Apparently, not. Anyway, I hope this information is helpful to some.
