It would appear that they can now take whatever they want, whenever they want, in the name of "preparedness"

It’s peacetime, because as the title of the order says, it’s for “Preparedness”

This Executive Order was posted on the web site on Friday, March 16, 2012, under the name National Defense Resources Preparedness. In a nutshell, it’s the blueprint for Peacetime Martial Law and it gives the president the power to take just about anything deemed necessary for “National Defense”, whatever they decide that is.

Under this order the heads of these cabinet level positions; Agriculture, Energy, Health and Human Services, Transportation, Defense and Commerce can take food, livestock, fertilizer, farm equipment, all forms of energy, water resources, all forms of civil transportation (meaning any vehicles, boats, planes), and any other materials, including construction materials from wherever they are available.

What happens if the government decides it needs all these things to be prepared, even if there is no war? You likely won’t be able to walk into a store to purchase virtually anything because it will all be requisitioned, “rationed” and controlled by the government.

Construction materials, food like meat, butter and sugar, anything imported, parts, tires and fuel for vehicles, clothing, etc. will likely become unobtainable, or at least very scarce.

How many things are even made here in the USA any more? Order dated 3/16/2012

Materials acquired that exceeds the needs of the programs can be transferred to their stockpile:

(b) Materials acquired under section 303 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2093, that exceed the needs of the programs under the Act may be transferred to the National Defense Stockpile, if, in the judgment of the Secretary of Defense as the National Defense Stockpile Manager, such transfers are in the public interest. Order dated 3/16/2012

So apparently, in preparation for any natural disaster that may occur sometime down the road, they can take anything they want to from us now.

This has already been posted.

Also every president has signed this since FEMA started.

Truly scary that everything we have worked for our whole lives can be taken away because they decided to.
