Obama Officially Lays Final Groundwork for Totalitarianism

If the voter fraud Eric Holder has been diligently working to facilitate isn’t sufficient to extend Obama’s disastrous presidency for another four years, don’t be too sure he’ll go quietly. Our historic First Affirmative Action President has just signed a terrifying executive order [PDF] assigning to himself total control over all resources in the USA in the event of a 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.

The last president to attempt this sort of power grab was the world’s first fascist dictator.

During World War I, when Congress refused to grant Woodrow Wilson extended power over resources to help the war effort, he invoked an Executive Order which allowed him complete control over businesses, industry, transportation, food, and other economic policies.

Somehow America survived Woodrow Wilson, becoming a free country again when he no longer had the war to justify his authoritarian excesses. Whether it will survive Barack Hussein Obama remains to be seen.

Combine the National Defense Resources Preparedness order with Homeland Security’s definition of a terrorist as someone who disagrees with Obama, the Regime’s proclaimed right to detain US citizens indefinitely without charge, its stated policy of never letting a crisis go to waste, the other alarming executive orders Obama has signed, his longing for a utopian revolution, and the likelihood that his wildly irresponsible deficit spending will lead to economic collapse and you have some very good reasons to be thankful for the Oath Keepers.

    Now why didn’t I hear about this on the news?

  • StanInTexas

    Once again we see Democrats passing laws and handing out power as if THEY will be in charge forever.

    During the next Republican administration, look for Democrats to viciously attack this order, even if the Republican in charge never uses it.

  • Jay B.

    StanInTexas says:

    I highly doubt the democrats will let another election go by. There are too many new executive processes in place to let this go to waste. Also, keep in mind that every liberal outlet basically bet the farm with Obama, publicly abandonning any pretenses of objectivism. There are too many ships sinking when Obama’s will, so you can expect a “crisis” by the time elections come.

    Oh, I understand that, Jay. And I would put nothing past this group in terms of making sure Obama stays in power.

    However, we have seen in the past how a policy or order or law is good under a Democrat and bad under a Republican. My point is that this one is no different.

  • F.D.R. in Hell

    I would have kept “rationing” in place past the end of World War Two. Of course, I ended up in [this] place.

    The important word in that Executive Order is “peacetime”… your boy will implement this “rationing” whenever he pleases.

    Is anyone in America awake? …didn’t think so. 🙁

  • forest

    Here’s a guy with a terrific resume for handling this. Experience as a peacetime central planner and wartime economic dictator. Not averse to using forced labor:

    He has a nice trouser crease to boot. Not one of those unwashed rabble rousers.

  • dan

    Totalitarianism by incrementalism….who needs the old
    communist dialectic.

  • Sam Adams

    I wonder really who will run the show? Obama is, at his core, not a workaholic. He enjoys shooting hoops and playing golf and being supreme commander actually requires a lot of work.

    Will it just be the faceless bureaucrats that control so much of our lives today?

  • Z1ggurat_Vert1go

    I don’t think the collapse can be averted at this point. It’s just a matter of who is running the country when it happens.

    If the right people are in charge, when people call for them to take over everything and “just fix it” they will do the correct, difficult thing and say, “No.”

    If the wrong people, they will gladly take over.

    Just a matter of when, not if, the dollar is going to implode.

  • Sam Adams

    Of course Woodrow Wilson did much to fundamentally transform the US; we have never recovered from his presidency.

    Of course, that was at a time when many actually believe that the government could solve problems rather than making them worse.

  • AC

    It’s a matter of when, not if. Mittens McMilquetoast is not strong enough to reverse what the Marxist usurper has set in motion.

    The winning strategy is preparation.

    I guess it’s time to bite the bullet and buy a Prius, then add in a huge battery. I can’t imagine what sort of hell life will become once the oil/gasoline supply has been socialized and rationed. Washington is trying to herd us onto public transportation.

  • Frolicking with Muslims

    Ironic isn’t it, that the Constitution BO disparages is now suddenly useful for grabbing more power?

    What worries me about this is a power grab at a time when there is no apparent need to do so.

    What matters of urgency would occur in the foreseeable future to necessitate martial law?

    Oil dries up from Iran causing riots in the streets perhaps?

    Or it could be the bill recently proposed in congress to implement articles of impeachment if he used the military without congressional approval?

    Or it could just be a narcissist whose ratings are low, can’t raise cash for his filthy (see Cee Lo Green) campaign, hasn’t a clue as to how to run the country, has used up the race card and now has Sheriff Arpaio breathing down his Kenyan-born neck.

  • whotothewhat

    Although, updates have been made and other blogs have dissected this order and found it to be a routine update issued on a quiet Friday where the Press was not paying attention. It did get me motivated to assemble some resources that I have had for some time and do a little prepping. Fill clips and clean weapons organize other materials food and water. Although I was inclined to see this as a Def Con 3 moment, not seeing any black helicopters or paramilitary units trucking thru my town calmed me down a bit. But with Obama this could be just his way of saying hey “I could do this if I wanted, so better hope nothing bad happens this year” hint hint. With Iran, Syria, OWS, the election anything could be used as a excuse to CLAMP DOWN on the people.

  • Sam Adams

    We can look forward to the OWS folks providing the emergency that the administration so desperately needs. That is why they will ramp up their protests as soon as the weather gets better (and school lets out).
    Question is how to counter a violent OWS movement?

    When this Exec Order news simmers down, check out this one from Liz Klimas at “The Blaze”:

  • Bob Roberts

    So what is the procedure for escorting an ex-President out of office after he loses an election and refuses to vacate?

  • Val

    My God! I keep asking myself “how did that happen??” It’s like a bad dream and we can’t wake up!
    Traveling around the country we see gas price soaring, everything more and more expensive and yet more and more cars with the “Obama 2012” sticker! Is America that blunt??

  • dmgore

    Bob that is an excellent question. Pre 2008 I would have never thought that was something I would contemplate, but I can honestly see that happening.

  • AC

    They’re going to push for a reinstatement of the Clinton gun ban. Mark my words.

    The time to buy is now, before there is another shortage of arms.

  • Someone Once

    Ammunition will never be cheaper than it is now.
    Stock up.

    I saw interesting graffiti this morning at the bus stop. It said “F*ck Commies”. It wasn’t too long ago it would have said “F*ck Capitalists.” Maybe things are changing as reality soaks in to the sheople.

  • A. Levy

    Jay, you surely hit the nail of the head! Aside from the fact that 2012 will be “the most” corrupt election this nation has ever seen, if the Marxist-in-Chief is seen as losing, look for;

    a) blacks rioting in order to intimidate the country.

    b) the “invention” of a national “emergency” where congress, the courts, and the Constitution, will be side stepped and “over-ruled”. And guess what, the American people will sit still for it, as usual.

  • Bloodless Coup

    “America is already under a state of martial law, but many have been conditioned to accept it because the degree to which it has been implemented has not yet reached its maximum. You don’t have to witness a Waco siege every day with tanks and the government killing citizens to be under a state of martial law.
    – We already have the executive branch claiming the power to have Americans abducted and imprisoned without trial under the NDAA.
    – We already have the executive branch claiming the power to assassinate American citizens with no legal process whatsoever.
    – We already have checkpoints manned by TSA goons as well as other militarized forces spreading across America.
    – We already have the Pentagon claiming it doesn’t have to even recognize Congress to launch wars and that the only superior body it has to answer to is the United Nations.
    – We already have the Department of Defense characterizing protest as “low level terrorism” while the federal government is busy labeling banal activities and behavior as indicative of terrorism.
    Those five things alone illustrate beyond any conceivable doubt that America is already under a degree of martial law.
    Martial law is primarily used as a tool of the elite to rob the people blind. Once the next big crisis hits, the degree to which America is under martial law will increase once again.”
