Nasdaq trading, most likely due to the suspicious trades as mentioned in previous posts. I think Bernanke not attending is because of schedualing
conflict. I'd be more interested in what meeting he will be going too and what is being talked about in that meeting than what is being talked about
at the conference. Especially with all this Syria talk heating up.
China is turning out to be more of a paper tiger than anything else, and Google, Amazon, etc. all suffering outages?
I present this to you. Sorry for the tangent, but I saw other people bringing this stuff up, so I present my explination.
National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions
The section that has people all up in arms is section 5.2:
Sec. 5.2. The Secretary of Homeland Security shall: (a) oversee the development, testing, implementation, and sustainment of NS/EP
communications, including: communications that support Continuity of Government; Federal, State, local, territorial, and tribal emergency preparedness
and response communications; non-military executive branch communications systems; critical infrastructure protection networks; and non-military
communications networks, particularly with respect to prioritization and restoration;
(b) incorporate, integrate, and ensure interoperability and the necessary combination of hardness, redundancy, mobility, connectivity,
interoperability, restorability, and security to obtain, to the maximum extent practicable, the survivability of NS/EP communications defined in
section 5.2(a) of this order under all circumstances, including conditions of crisis or emergency;
(c) provide to the Executive Committee the technical support necessary to develop and maintain plans adequate to provide for the security and
protection of NS/EP communications;
(d) receive, integrate, and disseminate NS/EP communications information to the Federal Government and State, local, territorial, and tribal
governments, as appropriate, to establish situational awareness, priority setting recommendations, and a common operating picture for NS/EP
(e) satisfy priority communications requirements through the use of commercial, Government, and privately owned communications resources, when
(f) maintain a joint industry-Government center that is capable of assisting in the initiation, coordination, restoration, and reconstitution of NS/EP
communications services or facilities under all conditions of emerging threats, crisis, or emergency;
(g) serve as the Federal lead for the prioritized restoration of communications infrastructure and coordinate the prioritization and restoration of
communications, including resolution of any conflicts in or among priorities, in coordination with the Secretary of Defense when activities referenced
in section 5.1(a) of this order are impacted, consistent with the National Response Framework. If conflicts in or among priorities cannot be resolved
between the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security, they shall be referred for resolution in accordance with section 2.1 of this order; and
(h) within 60 days of the date of this order, in consultation with the Executive Committee where appropriate, develop and submit to the President,
through the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, a detailed plan that describes the Department of Homeland
Security's organization and management structure for its NS/EP communications functions, including the Government Emergency Telecommunications
Service, Wireless Priority Service, Telecommunications Service Priority program, Next Generation Network Priority program, the Executive Committee
JPO, and relevant supporting entities.
Here is a

And I would imagine that the actions outlined in the above Executive order are
spurring the latest round of impeachment
So it should get really interesting.
