United States Presidents issue
executive orders to help officers and agencies of the executive
branch manage the operations within the federal government itself. Executive orders have the full force
of law, since
issuances are typically made in pursuance of certain Acts of Congress, some of which specifically delegate to
the President some degree of discretionary power (delegated legislation), or are believed to take
authority from a power granted directly to the Executive by the Constitution. However, these perceived
justifications cited by Presidents when authoring Executive Orders have come under criticism for exceeding
executive authority; at various times throughout U.S. history, challenges to the legal validity or justification
for an order have resulted in legal proceedings.
“An Executive Order is a policy or procedure issued by the
President that is a regulation that applies only to employees of the Executive Branch of government,” notes
theTenth Amendment Center. “When a President issues an unconstitutional Executive Order and Congress allows the order to stand
they are violating their oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.”

Brian Tuohy - Disaster Government and Executive
An overlooked broadcast that would appear to have relevance 2 months later. Ian Punnett's
interview with Brian Tuohy about his historical research into Executive Orders, US planning for natural disasters,
national emergency and continuity of government. First 7 minutes talks about the fixing of sports events. Quote
from Tuohy's website: The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, "I'm from the government and I'm
here to help" - Ronald Reagan. Edited - no breaks.
Disaster Government is the new book by author Brian Tuohy based entirely on the federal
government's own files. It delves into national emergencies, Continuity of Government, Presidential
Executive Orders, martial law & the Posse Comitatus Act, FEMA and its history, USNORTHCOM, and the
Presidential Emergency Action Documents. Also covered is the odd world of the secret underground bases and
relocation sites built across the country to protect our officials in the event of a "national emergency."
Shockingly, hidden within these secret cities is an unelected shadow government ready to assume control should our
elected officials be killed in a terrorist attack or nuclear war. Visit www.disastergovernment.com for more
Revealed within the pages of Disaster
Government is the most detailed information ever made public regarding Continuity of Government programs.
These are the Top Secret plans the U.S. federal government created to save itself in the event of a nuclear war or
some other "national emergency."
What is a national emergency? You'd be surprised.
When one is declared--which occurs more often than one would believe--a whole slew of horrific legislation is made
available to the President to enact. Some of this could do what you would hope is
rationing of food, water, and energy; the confiscation of your personal vehicle (car, boat, or plane);
the confiscation of your personal "electromagnetic device" (cell phone, ipod, computer, television,
forcing you to work where and on what project the government deems necessary;
the ability to control your wages;
and much, much more.
These dormant laws waiting to spring to life were put into place by Democrats and Republicans from
both the Left and the Right "for your protection"...and theirs.
Disaster Government delves into Presidential Executive Orders, martial law & the Posse Comitatus
Act, FEMA and its history, USNORTHCOM, and the Presidential Emergency Action Documents that make much of this
possible. Also covered is the odd world of the secret underground bases and

Obama Brings Ebola Into America After
Signing Executive Order to Detain Sick Americans
Officials are importing Ebola into the U.S. which doctors
have failed to contain in Africa
by Kit Daniels | Infowars.com | August 3, 2014
Despite the fact that doctors in Africa cannot keep Ebola from spreading,
United States officials brought an affected patient into the country only days after President
Obama signed an executive order mandating the detention of Americans who show signs of “respiratory
“Video from Emory showed someone wearing a white, full-body protective suit helping a similarly clad person
emerge from the ambulance and walk into the hospital early Saturday afternoon,” CNN reported.
This has stoked concerns among the American public that Ebola could now spread inside the U.S., especially since
the virus has been difficult to contain in Africa.
“It sounds like the perfect script for a horror movie: A virus with no vaccine and no cure kills hundreds of
people; despite containment efforts, it keeps spreading, but it’s actually all too real in West Africa, where
doctors have said Ebola is now ‘out of control,’” wrote Sheila M. Eldred for Discovery News.
“Allegedly the Ebola carriers will be quarantined in special rooms, but we already know that American hospitals
cannot even contain staph infections,” columnist Paul Craig Roberts wrote. “What happens to the utensils, plates, cups, and glasses with
which the ebola infected persons eat and drink and who gets to clean the bed pans?”
“One slip-up by one person, one tear in a rubber glove, and the virus is loose.”
This really highlights the reckless nature of the global elite and government officials for importing a virus
into the country which has no specific treatment and a mortality rate of up to 90%.
Similarly, state-funded universities and other facilities across the U.S. are maintaining weaponized viruses for
so-called “bio-defense” under the Project Bioshield Act passed by Congress in 2004, but because these facilities
are only moderately secure for the most part, there is a real risk that a deadly virus could escape into the public
and affect millions of Americans in an outbreak on the same level as the pandemics which killed 80%
of Native American populations by the 19th century.
The National Research Council found that one of these laboratories in Kansas, for example, has a 70% chance that a virus will spread from its lab in the
next 50 years, even though the facility is designated as “maximum security.”
And it should also be pointed out that this is just one lab out of many in the nation, a good percentage of
which have even less security.
Obama Signs Executive Order to Allow Detention of Americans With ‘Respiratory Illnesses’
Amendment comes in wake of Ebola scare
by Paul Joseph Watson | August 1, 2014
As the Ebola outbreak continues to cause
concern, President Barack Obama has signed an amendment to an executive order that would allow him to mandate the
apprehension and detention of Americans who merely show signs of “respiratory illness.”
The amendment signed by Obama replaces subsection (b) of the original Bush executive order which
referred only to SARS. Obama’s amendment allows for the detention of Americans who display, “Severe acute
respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or
other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or
have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious
morbidity if not properly controlled.”
Although Ebola was listed on the original executive order signed by Bush, Obama’s amendment ensures
that Americans who merely show signs of respiratory illness, with the exception of influenza, can be forcibly
detained by medical authorities.
Although the quarantining of people suspected of being infected with the Ebola virus seems like a
perfectly logical move, the actual preconditions for this to happen aren’t restricted to just those suffering from
As we highlighted earlier this
week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has measures in place for dealing with an outbreak
of a communicable disease which allow for the quarantine of “well persons” who “do not show symptoms” of the
In addition, under the Model State
Emergency Health Powers Act, public health authorities and governors would be given expanded police powers to
seize control of communications devices, public and private property, as well as a host of other draconian measures
in the event of a public health emergency.
When the legislation was introduced, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons warned
that it “could turn governors into dictators.”
Yesterday it was reported that
Emory University Hospital in Atlanta was set to receive a patient infected with Ebola. A hospital in Germany
also accepted an infected patient earlier this week. Some critics have raised concerns about the risk of
deliberately importing infected individuals into the west.
COMMENT: Apologists here for
Obama’s use of executive orders point out the other recent presidents who’ve also overreached their use of
executive orders. This makes the abuses more important, not less, as this has been an on-going deviation from the
Constitutional limits of the president since at least FDR in the 30s. An executive branch run wild makes the abuses
of kings and dictators almost inevitable. That is why it must be reined in; that’s why the framers constructed
limited powers in their document. On the otherhand, there’s clear evidence that all of Obama & co.’s study of
the Constitution must have been focuses on tactics to skirt its limitations.

Infowars has discovered new FEMA documents that confirm information received from DoD sources that show military
involvement in a FEMA-led takeover within the United States under partially-classified Continuity of Government
(COG) plans. It involves not only operations for the relocation of COG personnel and key officials, population
management, emergency communications and alerts but the designation of the American people as ‘enemies’ under a
live military tracking system known as Blue Force Situational Awareness (BFSA).
A laundry list of operations organized under FEMA’s National Continuity Programs (NCP) provides a base of
technical support for the deployment of national emergency plans and the logistical tracking of all personnel
incorporated under what Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano has lovingly termed the big “federal
“Friendly” military and FEMA personnnel, along with their contracted employees and those of other federal
agencies, will carry transponder ID badges, like those
described here, to designate their “blue” inclusive status. As our military sources have confirmed, under the
Blue Force Situational Awareness (BFSA) all other American citizens and civilians are designated under the “red”
category and treated as an enemy or potential unfriendly. Throughout his past investigative work including
witnessing numerous military drills, Alex Jones has also witnessed the technology and the use of this alarming code
branding ordinary Americans as battlefield enemies. The plan includes drone and other high-tech tools to monitor
and target individuals designated under the “enemy” status.
The military’s blue force tracking
technology has been adopted since 2003 in Iraq and used in
theaters like Afghanistan to quickly distinguish “Blue” friendlies (including U.S. forces and allies like
tribal forces) from “Red” enemies. However, on the U.S. homeland battlefield, it is the American people who will be
designated under “red,” whereas cleared occupying personnel are tracked as “blue” friendlies by their
ID transponder badges. The designation was set-up to reduce “friendly fire” incidents.
Blue Force and other related programs like Geospatial Information Systems (GIS), Continuity Analysis
and the Command, Control, Communications and Computing (C4) operations named in the document electronically track and verify the location and
clearance of COG-related personnel, the usage of emergency shelter facilities and their components as well as the
military’s friendly/enemy designations– creating a matrix for live monitoring and control coordinating with FEMA
databases during martial law or national emergency scenarios.
In particular, the Mt. Weather Emergency Operations Center outside Washington, D.C. is empowered to “coordinate,
track, and synchronize the relocation of key leadership and staff from the DHS and FEMA Emergency Relocation Groups
(ERG) members to perform their essential functions” during a declared national emergency using the Blue Force and
other related tracking programs managed under the established joint relocation operations control center and
emergency relocation programs referenced in the document. Section 1.3.4 further details the minimum ID requirements
for contractor employee identification and verification.
The FEMA National Shelter System
(NSS) is a comprehensive, Web-based database created to support Federal, State and local
government agencies and voluntary organizations responsible for Mass Care and Emergency Assistance. The FEMA NSS
allows users to identify, track, analyze, and report on data for virtually any facility associated with the
congregate care of people and/or household pets following a disaster.
FEMA has also outlined detailed support for its vast Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS),
proscribed under Executive Order 13407 for the federal takeover of communications. It details the continuity of
emergency communications and the issuance of warnings to the public, including public-private partnerships
concerned with issuing alert messages through cellular providers– a program that only recently caused
panic when it was publicly tested without forewarning in New Jersey. It is designated in the document
under the Commercial Mobile Alerting
As we have mentioned here and detailed in the past, this is part of larger COG government takeover– not part of
any ordinary natural disaster response as the media has been told. The elite have initiated worldwide economic
collapse and prepared their power-grabbing response as currencies and markets fall across the globe. All the
experts we’ve talked to over the years concur with this basic analysis.
To put it simply: once the economic depression has sunken in completely, the population will willingly head in
droves to government centers for basic requirements like food. As Henry Kissinger bluntly quipped, “Control oil and
you control nations; control food and you control the people.” FEMA’s response will in hinge, in part, on just
that– encouraging people sign up for their own enslavement.

President Obama’s state of the union pledge to “act with
or without Congress” marks a milestone in presidential usurpation of Congressional authority. Most modern
presidents have used executive orders to change and even create laws without Congressional approval. However
President Obama is unusually brazen, in that most Presidents do not brag about their plans to rule by executive
order in state of the union speeches.
Sadly, his pledge to use his pen to implement laws and polices without the consent of Congress not only received
thunderous applause from representatives of the president’s party, some representatives have even pledged to help
Obama get around Congress by providing him with ideas for executive orders. The Constitution’s authors would be
horrified to see legislators actively adding and abetting a president taking power away from the legislature.
Executive orders are perfectly legitimate and even necessary if, in the words of leading Constitutional Scholar
Judge Andrew Napolitano, they “…. guide the executive branch on how to enforce a law or…complement and supplement
what Congress has already done.” The problem is that most modern presidents have abused this power to issue orders
that, as Judge Napolitano puts it, “restates federal law, or contradicts federal law, or does the opposite of what
the federal law is supposed to do.”
Political opponents of the president rightly condemned Obama for disregarding the Constitution. However, it was
not that long ago that many of the same politicians where labeling as “unpatriotic” or worse anyone who dared
question President Bush’s assertions the he had the “inherent” authority to launch wars, spy on Americans, and even
indefinitely detain American citizens.
Partisan considerations also make some members of the opposition party hesitate to reign in the president. These
members are reluctant to set a precedent of “tying the president’s hands” that could be used against a future
president of their own party.
The concentration of power in the office of the president is yet one more negative consequence of our
interventionist foreign policy. A foreign policy based on interventionism requires a strong and energetic
executive, unfettered by Constitutional niceties such as waiting for Congress to pass laws or declare war. So it
simply was natural, as America abandoned the traditional foreign policy of non-interventionism, for presidents to
act “without waiting for Congress.” After all, the president is “commander-in-chief” and he needs to protect
“national security,” they argued. Once it became accepted practice for the president to disregard Congress in
foreign affairs, it was only a matter of time before presidents would begin usurping Congressional authority in
It should not be surprising that some of the biggest promoters of an “energetic” executive are the
neoconservatives. They are also enthusiastic promoters of the warfare state. Sadly, they have misled many
constitutionalists into believing that one can consistently support unchecked presidential authority in foreign
policy, but limit presidential authority in domestic matters. Until it is fully understood that virtually limitless
presidential authority in foreign affairs cannot coexist with strict limits on Presidential authority in domestic
matters, we will never limit the power of the Presidency.
The people must also insist that politicians stop viewing issues concerning the separation of powers through a
partisan lens and instead be willing to act against any president who exceeds his constitutional limitations.
Thankfully we have scholars such as Louis Fisher, who has just published an
important new book on presidential power, to help us better understand the Founders’ intent with regard to
separation of powers. The key to achieving this goal is to make sure the people understand that any president of
any party who would exceed constitutional limitations is a threat to liberty, and any member of Congress who
ignores or facilitates presidential usurpation is being derelict in his Constitutional duty.

Another arrogant violation of Article I Section I of the
November 2, 2013
The Obama administration on
Friday once again disrespected the Constitution by signing an executive order that circumvents Congress and the American people.
The latest move defiantly ignores a decision by Congress in 2009 to not establish a
cap-and-trade system that would have supposedly discouraged greenhouse-gas emissions. The Waxman-Markey bill passed the House but was defeated in the Senate. At the time,
Democrats controlled both houses of Congress.
The latest unconstitutional EO
establishes a task force of state and local officials “to advise the administration on how to respond to severe
storms, wildfires, droughts and other potential impacts of climate change.” according to Fox News.
The EO lumps extreme weather events under the discredited rubric of climate change.
It will mandate new federal building codes under Agenda 21′s “sustainability” and promises to “address climate impacts and
infrastructure needs.” The order was praised by the EPA and its administrator, Gina McCarthy, who said it serves
as a “roadmap for agency work” and forces the nation to face what it deems are “climate-related challenges.”
The EO will withhold money expropriated by the federal government from the states if
they do not sign on to the latest climate scam proposals. It will “bring sweeping new changes to land use and
resource policies,” “refocus of climate change data and use of it to push a new agenda into every priority of the
federal government,” and, importantly, make policies immune to challenge by establishing “a new internal
organization for coordination efforts during a government sequestration and possible future shutdowns.”
A study released last year debunked Al Gore’s “hockey stick” graph on warming and
states that the statistical outcomes on climate change produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change and associated organizations are “quite wrong.”
Data compiled by NASA’s Langley Research Center earlier this year, writes Ethan A. Huff for Natural News, reveals that “all those atmospheric greenhouse gases
that Al Gore and all the other global warming hoaxers have long claimed are overheating and destroying our
planet are actually cooling it.”
Article I Section I of the Constitution unambiguously states that Congress, not the
executive, has legislative power. An executive order is not lawful legislation.
“An Executive Order is a policy or procedure issued by the President that is a
regulation that applies only to employees of the Executive Branch of government,” notes the Tenth Amendment Center. “When a President issues an unconstitutional Executive Order and
Congress allows the order to stand they are violating their oath to preserve, protect and defend the

Continuity in Government programs have been one
edge of the wedge to wrest control of the U.S. government away from Constitutional authority and put it in the
hands of the secret teams under the direction of hidden interests.
The political infrastructure for martial law in the U.S. is already in place. Apparently unsure
that the USAPATRIOT Act(s) and the Military Commissions Act weren’t strong enough, on May 9, 2007, Bush issued a
document doubly titled “National Security Presidential Directive/NSPD 51″ and “Homeland Security Presidential
Directive/HSPD-20.” This document supposedly outlines the federal government’s plan for maintaining continuity in
the face of a “catastrophic emergency.”
“Catastrophic emergency” is defined as “any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary
levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure,
environment, economy, or government function.” So, pretty much anything…
In the event of this improbable catastrophe, this unconstitutional legislation by the executive grants itself
supreme power to ensure the continuity of Constitutional government. Good one.
In other words, NSPD 51/HSPD-20 would impose martial law under the authority of the White House through DHS. It
would suspend constitutional government under the provisions of Continuity in Government (COG).
Since 2003, following the invasion of Iraq, Homeland Security (DHS) has contemplated time and again the
possibility of a so-called code red alert “scenario” — using a potential or possible Al Qaeda terrorist attack on
American soil — as a pretext for implementing martial law. At one time, Tommy Thompson Former Health and Human
Services Secretary said that if we “went to” Code Red the entire civilian government would “shut down.” There are
no known provisions for returning America from Code Red status, once it is invoked.
“This Combined Directive NSPD /51 HSPD 20 grants unprecedented powers to the Presidency and the
Department of Homeland Security, overriding the foundations of Constitutional government. NSPD 51 allows the
sitting president to declare a “national emergency” without Congressional approval The adoption of NSPD 51 would
lead to the de facto closing down of the Legislature and the militarization of justice and law enforcement:
The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional
government. In order to advise and assist the President in that function, the Assistant to the
President for Homeland Security and Counter terrorism (APHS/CT) is hereby designated as the National Continuity
Coordinator. The National Continuity Coordinator, in coordination with the Assistant to the President
for National Security Affairs (APNSA), without exercising directive authority, shall coordinate the development
and implementation of continuity policy for executive departments and agencies. The Continuity Policy
Coordination Committee (CPCC), chaired by a Senior Director from the Homeland Security Council staff,
designated by the National Continuity Coordinator, shall be the main day-to-day forum for such policy
coordination. (National Security and
Homeland Security Presidential Directive NSPD 51/HSPD 20, emphasis added)
NSPD 51 grants extraordinary Police State powers to the White House and Homeland Security (DHS), in the event of
a “Catastrophic Emergency”. The Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counter terrorism (APHS/CT),
who is slated to play a key role in the eventuality of Martial law, is a key White House adviser, Frances Fragos
Of course, preparations for emergency management of the U.S. Government has by this time become a tradition here
in the Homeland.
According to William M. Arkin in “Shadow Government” in the Case of a “Second 9/11:”
“Continuity programs began in the early 1950s, when the threat of nuclear war moved the administration of
President Harry S. Truman to begin planning for emergency government functions and civil defense. Evacuation
bunkers were built, and an incredibly complex and secretive shadow government program was created.
At its height, the grand era of continuity boasted the fully operational Mount Weather, a civilian bunker built
along the crest of Virginia’s Blue Ridge, to which most agency heads would evacuate; the Greenbrier hotel complex
and bunker in West Virginia, where Congress would shelter; and Raven Rock, or Site R, a national security bunker
bored into granite along the Pennsylvania-Maryland border near Camp David, where the Joint Chiefs of Staff would
command a protracted nuclear war. Special communications networks were built, and evacuation and succession
procedures were practiced continually.
When the Soviet Union crumbled, the program became a Cold War curiosity: Then-Defense Secretary Dick Cheney
ordered Raven Rock into caretaker status in 1991. The Greenbrier bunker was shuttered and a 30-year-old special
access program was declassified three years later.
Then came the terrorist attacks of the mid-1990s and the looming Y2K rollover, and suddenly continuity wasn’t
only for nuclear war anymore. On Oct. 21, 1998, President Bill Clinton signed Presidential Decision Directive 67,
“Enduring Constitutional Government and Continuity of Government Operations.” No longer would only the very few
elite leaders responsible for national security be covered. Instead, every single government department and agency
was directed to see to it that they could resume critical functions within 12 hours of a warning, and keep their
operations running at emergency facilities for up to 30 days. FEMA was put in charge of this broad new program.
On 9/11, the program was put to the test — and failed. Not on the national security side: Vice President Cheney
and others in the national security leadership were smoothly whisked away from the capital following procedures
overseen by the Pentagon and the White House Military Office. But like the mass of Washingtonians, officials from
other agencies found themselves virtually on their own, unsure of where to go or what to do, or whom to contact for
Continuity in Government programs have been one edge of the wedge to wrest control of the U.S. government away
from Constitutional authority and put it in the hands of the secret teams under the direction of hidden interests.
The elite decision-makers behind this crypto-fascist coup obviously include big finance, military corporations,
elements of intelligence, and interlocking corporations, and also have curious deep ties to the creation and
sustenance of the State of Israel.
It’s commonplace humor to refer to Dick Cheney’s being in a “secure location,” but he and Donald Rumsfeld have
been intimately involved in Continuity in Government (COG) since their days in Congress. I’ve read several articles
on this connection, but was interested to find that I could find no reference to this, or to much at all about the
ongoing development of COG programs since the onset of the cold war.
It’s also interesting to note that in Arkin’s excerpt above he notes that for most of Official Washington the
COG measures in place failed to take account for them, serving instead only some short list of insiders. This
begins to make obvious just who this government serves.

A document currently circulating through the
Washington state government details the attempt to vastly expand Continuity of Government powers by amending the
Exclusively revealed to Storyleak, the document, entitled
“Modernizing State’s Continuity of Operation Planning,” asks State Representatives to pass legislation concerning
the government’s ability to implement COG. Spearheaded by the Washington Military Department and the State
Auditor’s Office, the document also details the move to add Continuity of Operations planning to state law.
Created at the height of the cold war during the 1960s, the Continuity of Government (COG) program was designed
to give the federal government martial law powers in the event of a nuclear attack. Now, states have begun
following the federal government’s lead in granting themselves much greater COG abilities.
“Change ‘only enemy attack’ to ‘any emergency, disaster or attack’ in the state’s Continuity of Government Act,
as well as the Continuity of Government provisions developed for the Office of the Governor, the legislature,
county commissioners and city or town officers,” the document states.
The document also goes on to call for erasing the government’s requirement of bringing the legislative body
together no later than 30 days after a disaster or attack, giving the governor the power to keep COG operations
ongoing for undetermined lengths.
“Amend the provisions for the governor calling the Legislature into session from ‘as soon as practicable or no
later than the 30th day after the attack’ to ‘as soon as practicable,’” the document reads.
Under revised amendments, each state agency, commission and board will be directed to begin developing and
practicing a yearly continuity of operations plan.
“COOP is nationally recognized as a critical Continuity of Government component to ensure Washington citizens
receive government assistance during emergencies,” the document’s first paragraph details.
While some feel the expansion of COG operations is a simple update, other laws passed in recent years seems to
paint a more focused picture, as historically low government approval ratings coincide with increasingly authoritarian
President Obama’s extension of the National Defense Resources Preparedness executive order last year, which allows the government to completely take over all
manufacturing, food, transportation and water resources in the event of any stated emergency, whether legitimate
or not, followed several unprecedented law changes.
The 2012 and 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, signed by President Obama, not only declared the entire
United States a battlefield in the never-ending war on terror, but granted the US government the ability to
kidnap and detain any American citizen without charge or trial indefinitely.
If Hurricane Katrina is any guide, the federal government’s main objective will be confiscating the guns of law-abiding citizens while others desperately wait for food
and water. If Americans are lucky like New Yorkers, they will be greeted by “closed due to weather” FEMA signs instead of gun-confiscating soldiers during their next major disaster.

President Barack Obama is
rapidly advancing an executive dictatorship that threatens to completely nullify the US Constitution if left
unchecked, with his administration hastily eroding every other branch of government as the White House crosses the
rubicon to push through its political agenda on every front, from the war in Libya to domestic gun
WAR ON LIBYA
Obama has displayed open
hostility to the rule of law and the Constitution when asked why he has failed to obtain Congressional approval for
the war on Libya.
As part of its bid to eviscerate the Second Amendment by stealth,
“under the radar” as Obama himself called it, the White House is about to
launch a new gun control offensive that will bypass the necessity of passing legislation in Congress and instead
rely on “only executive orders or administrative actions.”
According to aHuffington Post story on the issue, Obama is likely
to have more success pushing through gun control if he circumvents Congress on the issue. “Executive actions offer
something that legislation doesn’t: guaranteed results. And as one gun control advocate told the Huffington Post,
there are ways to “use these administrative changes to obtain similar results,” writes Sam Stein.
With the revelations surrounding Fast and Furious having blown up in their face,
and the Obama administration’s ploy to blame violence in Mexico on gun rightseven after they got
caught shipping in the weapons in tatters, the White House is desperate to
push through new gun control measures that are integral to advancingRahm
Emanuel’s May 2007 call to put people who are on a no fly list on a no gun
buy list, stripping millions of Americans of their Second Amendment rights because they have been erroneously
placed on a notoriously inaccurate no fly list that includes everyone from Senators to toddlers.
As part of Obama’s charge to sink America into more debt to foreign bankers, he
has dredged up a 143-year-old clause related to the Civil War in a bid to raise the debt ceiling, overtly
challenging Congressional control of the budget, a development that could spark a “constitutional
Obama’s attempt to use an obscure civil war clause to circumvent Congress, which
is empowered to control the purse strings, is another example of his administration’s flagrant effort to nullify
the separation of powers within government and give the executive branch supreme control.
The EPA’s move was little more than a threat to back Congress into a corner and
force them into passing legislation that would regulate CO2 for all new or expanded power plants.
The fact that this has nothing to do with the environment and everything to do
with fleecing American taxpayers was
confirmed when Obama gave a waiver to General Electric and ensured
that one of the biggest emitters of carbon dioxide on the planet, and coincidentally one of Obama’s largest
campaign contributors, was exempt from the new regulations.
Obama’s White House has issued a new executive order mandating the creation of a
“Rural Council,” another step in the move towards a centrally planned economy.
According to this new executive order, the Obama administration plans to stick its
itchy little fingers into just about every aspect of rural life,”writes the Economic Collapse Blog. “One of
the stated goals of the White House Rural Council is to do the following….”
“Coordinate and increase the effectiveness of Federal engagement with rural
stakeholders, including agricultural organizations, small businesses, education and training institutions,
health-care providers, telecommunications services providers, research and land grant institutions, law

Another White House executive order that creates a council of state governors who
will work with the feds to expand military involvement in domestic security has stoked fears that the

of State and Federal military activities in the United States”.
The governors will liaise with officials from Northcom, Homeland Security, the
National Guard as well as DoD officials from the Pentagon “in order to strengthen further the partnership between
the Federal Government and State governments,” according to the executive order.
Conservatives and libertarians responded to the announcement by expressing their
suspicion that Obama is preparing to give governors their marching orders in targeting “anti-government” types that
have long been characterized as a terrorist threat by the feds in numerous reports stretching back over a
On every front, the Obama administration is entering the final stages of a total
power grab that represents a clear effort to turn the country into an executive dictatorship, another stark
indication that America is quickly beginning to resemble a decaying banana republic.
Obama Attempting To Set Up Dictatorship!
There can no longer be any doubt,the office of the President is being transformed in to a
dictatorial command system.
Next phase of dictatorship proposed to save children and

Obama has officially announced
plans to trash the Constitution and move forward with a socialist-corporatist dictatorship without input from
Congress or the American people. He made the announcement Tuesday during a cabinet meeting.
“We’re not just going to be
waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need. I’ve got a
pen and I’ve got a phone,” Obama said.
“And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and
administrative actions that move the ball forward in helping to make sure our kids are getting the best education
possible, making sure that our businesses are getting the kind of support and help they need to grow and advance,
to make sure that people are getting the skills that they need to get those jobs that our businesses are
Article I Section I of the Constitution clearly states all legislative powers reside
with Congress. The founders were inspired by the writings of Montesquieu and insisted on three separate branches of
government and instituted a system of checks and balances to prevent tyranny. “There can be no liberty where the
legislative and executive powers are united in the same person,” Montesquieu wrote.
James Madison, writing in Federalist 46, warned that consolidated power at the
executive level is the very definition of tyranny. “The accumulation of all power, legislative, executive, and
judiciary in the same hands… may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”
George Washington signed the first executive order proclaiming a national day of
thanksgiving in 1789. Since that time, the Supreme Court has ruled executive orders may not be used to make law,
only execute laws passed by Congress. From Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt onward, however, presidents have
signed a large number of increasingly audacious and unconstitutional executive orders.
“Obama, lacking the charm of Franklin Roosevelt, nevertheless seeks to follow his
path in growing executive power,” writes David Davenport. “Starting with President Woodrow Wilson, and culminating in Roosevelt’s New
Deal, progressives sought to undermine the power of the legislature in favor of consolidating power in the
executive branch. From passing the sweeping healthcare reform bill on a party-line vote, to the largest use of
executive czars in our history, to initiating new policies on things like immigration and gun control by
executive order, Obama seeks to leave 225 years of constitutional separation of powers behind. This needs to be
exposed for what it is: a series of constitutional end-runs and a power grab by a frustrated and legacy-driven
Republicans, looking for partisan ammo to attack a Democrat president, will
undoubtedly criticize Obama’s latest constitutional affront. Executive orders and the gradual evolvement of the
imperial presidency is not limited to Democrats, however.
“Both Republicans and Democrats are fond of referring to the ‘imperial presidency’
when someone from the opposite party is in the White House,” explains William L. Anderson. “Yet both parties have acted to protect and strengthen the presidency
when it was to their advantage.”
“Unless members of the other branches are willing to act on the important principle
of decentralization of power, the American Experiment will end up being nothing but a footnote of history.”
This relegation of the American experiment to an irrelevant footnote is precisely
what the global elite with a stranglehold on government have in mind.
The globalist intelligentsia continue to argue in favor of trashing to Constitution.
In 2011, CNN contributor Fareed Zakaria argued that the Constitution is outdated and its principles should be
“debated and fixed” to conform with the modern era. He suggested “a set of amendments to modernize the
Constitution for the 21st Century.”
Adherence to the Constitution is now portrayed as a form of mental illness. “Indeed,
there is something infantile in the belief of the constitution-worshipers that the complex political arguments of
today can be settled by simple fidelity to a document written in the 18th century,” the editors the Economist wrote in late 2010. “When history is turned into scripture and men into
deities, truth is the victim.”
The Constitution stands between the global elite and their plan to reduce America to
an economic and cultural ruin. Natural rights and individual sovereignty are intractable obstacles and must be
destroyed if a one world totalitarian government is to be realized.
Obama’s latest comments on the plan to impose executive decrees – as usual, for the sake of the children – sets
the stage for the next phase of dictatorial government and the dismantlement of the Constitution and its relegation
to the dustbin of history.
