Executive Order 13603 – How Dangerous Is It?

DHS-OUT-OF-CONTROL

President Obama has been using executive orders (EO’s) in ways they have never been used before. He is using them to do end-runs around Congress by legislating from the White House. Some EO’s are dormant but pose a potential future threat. One of those is EO 13603.

President Obama signed EO 13603 on March 16, 2012. The purpose is to delegate authority and address national defense resource policies and programs under the Defense Production Act of 1950. It provides the framework and authority for the allocation or appropriation of resources, materials and services to promote national defense.

It is an update and it is not much different from prior EO’s on the National Defense Resources Preparedness. However, one difference which is concerning to some is that the definition “national emergency” is now broader and it is quite vague. There were other subtle changes that might be of interest.

The EO includes all of Obama’s out-of-control agencies and they would have unlimited power if the president declared a “national emergency.”

Executive Order 13603 — National Defense Resources Preparedness allows the government to completely control our lives through the “industrial and technological base,” should the president declare a national emergency.

EO 13603 gives Obama the power over all commodities and products capable of being ingested by human beings and animals; all forms of energy; all forms of civil transportation; all usable water from all sources; health resources; forces labor such as military conscription; and federal officials can issue regulations to prioritize and allocate resources.”

EO 13603 is the plan to control our economy and our lives in the event of a crisis endangering our national security. There are no checks and balances written into the EO.

Could a cyber threat be used as an excuse to use this authority? Could an economic crisis cause the president to take over retirement funds using this EO?

In Obama’s hands, this EO does give one pause.

President Obama is behind the nationalization of education, car companies, energy, school loans, housing. The growth of government and the unbridled spending seems endless under his reign.

One of the issues to be concerned about is his expressed desire to wrap his financial hands around the trillions in private retirement savings. A national financial crisis would allow him to do that.

Those are hypotheticals and there is no indication that President Obama will do any of that, however, the biggest concern is that we have now allowed our government to pass laws, EO’s, rules et al that give the government the right to do pretty much anything they want to us. We’ve been careless and inattentive.

We need an order like this but we don’t need an order that gives undefined and unlimited power to one person in the government who can then utilize his/her out-of-control government agencies as s/he sees fit.

Taking “your” country back? Surely you jest. I look at how old this post is and how there were talks of “the birth certificate” and the POTUS being a Muslim. And then this “take back our country” crap. It’s laughable. I even saw some fool say something about a race war Obama was starting. Some fool even said, “The one that cries racism is the racist.” Is that the spin you people put on it? Pitiful.
The irony is it is you all who are crying racism, accusing a bi-racial President of a. Having a fake birth certificate b. Starting a race war. c. Being Muslim.
Now is it just coincidence that the ONE President you accuse of these vile things isn’t White? This leads one to deduce that his race is the reason for this baseless, ignorant claim. After all, it was you people that said, “He who cries racism is the racist”.
Now, here we are, Obama at the end of his 2nd term and I have heard him tell anyone to attack us White people. Even newly-elected President Trump has stated that Obama is American. I’m sure you all believe HIM, right? And lastly, do you paranoids realize or even KNOW that Ovama’s Black father was no where to be found at any time during Obama’s youth? He was raised by his White, AMERICAN mother and his White Grandparents. None of which were Muslim. So keep telling yourselves your “theories/lies in your mind turned facts” are true when it comes to this man starting a race war or being Muslim. By the way, I guess you all are saying our entire government is for the Muslim/Black racists then because the Secret Service and FBI, etc., gave this non-American, Kenyan-born, “half-breed” Muslim clearance to run our country. See how stupid that sounds? Are you all going to make up three same theories about our new First Lady since she is Slovenian? Surely she must be a Russian spy, right? Since anyone whose parents that aren’t American is suspect and as you all claim, race doesn’t matter.
With that, I’m done here. I just find it hilarious that as of yet, there has been no race war, (if anything a lot of Blacks call Obama a “sell out”), no executive order of the one above, or one iota of proof that he is Muslim. If this is OUR country and you all love it so much, you would not disrespect our authorities and claim that they would clear a Muslim ready to start a race war to not only run, serve as our Commander and Chief for eight years. Maybe for once, you all will stop being hypocrites and acting like everyone that looks different from you wants to kill you. That makes you no better than the black lives matter people forever hollering racism.

There’s been a race war in this country since it was stolen by the British settlers from black indigenous people of the Americas. Or was it only when Obama was elected is when you realized it?

What black people would they be. Simply focusing on the British is a tad bigoted since a whole range of different races entered the US, In any event the US won its little war in 1776. I think it was Americans via the ignoring of 600 treaties with native Americans, after 1776, that stole the land.

What part of executive overreach do you not understand?
If your only defense is racism, then you have no defense.
Reality? Closed minded? How about projection?
If this were a conservative, of any color or sex, you and you minions in the MSM would be apoplectic.
Proof of point, when Ben Carson came out as a conservative, the MSM was calling him an Uncle Tom.
How racist is to think all Blacks MUST be /progressive/democrat/leftists?
Don’t lecture us about racists, the left are the most overtly racist and sexist among us.
