Read This Slowly. It is Obama making his move.
This executive order, published on the White House website yesterday, gives the Obama regime power to take over . . . pretty much EVERYTHING, including agriculture, labor, energy, transportation (both interstate and intrastate) and commerce IN PEACETIME and NON-EMERGENCY conditions.
Read it. Just commit a half hour and read the damn thing.

This one has not made much news outside of the conservative blogosphere. It is the newest executive order signed by Barack Obama.
Anyone nervous yet?
From the Examiner:
On March 16th, President Obama signed a new Executive Order which expands upon a prior order issued in 1950 for Disaster Preparedness, and gives the office of the President complete control over all the resources in the United States in times of war or emergency.
The National Defense Resources Preparedness order gives the Executive Branch the power to control and allocate energy, production, transportation, food, and even water resources by decree under the auspices of national defense and national security. The order is not limited to wartime implementation, as one of the order’s functions includes the command and control of resources in peacetime determinations.
I am not an alarmist but the idea of the Obama regime having total control over anything is disturbing. No it isn’t disturbing, it is totally, freaking scary.
Also from the Examiner:
The economy of the United States is based on the free flow of resources, energy, and the rights of consumers to buy and sell as they see fit. Any interference in this economic process quickly leads to shortages, rising prices, and civil unrest. The purpose of President Obama signing this new Executive Order is yet unclear, however, it may coincide with information coming out of Israel yesterday that plans for a tactical or strategic strike on Iran are accelerating. Oil prices in Europe rose over $3 a barrel for Brent crude after the Israeli actions, and US oil prices rose $2 for WTI.
The Obama administration appears to be preparing for a long drawn out war in the Middle East, or at the very least, an expected crisis that will require the need to override Constitutional authority and claim dominion over all resources in the United States under the guise of national defense. With the rise in Disaster Preparedness growing for both individuals and states leading up to yesterday’s Executive Order, the mood of the nation points strongly towards some event or disaster that will require massive preparations on a national as well as local scale.
Any one really nervous yet?
Given the cavalier way the Obama regime tends to ignore the Constitution, the thought of the Regime having emergency powers is a nightmare.
