Posted: March 17th,2012

This Executive Order was posted on the WhiteHouse.gov  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.    It’s peacetime, because as the title of the order says, it’s for “Preparedness”.  A copy of the entire order follows the end of this story.

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 transporation (meaning any vehicles, boats, planes),  and any other materials, including construction materials from wherever they are available.  This is probably why the government has been visiting farms with GPS devices, so they know exactly where to go when they turn this one on.

Specifically, the government is allowed to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate.  They decide what necessary or appropriate means.

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?

A bit of history…  During WWII, price stabilization didn’t begin until May of 1942, which froze prices on nearly all every day goods and rationing started in 1943.  Why would the government want to control everything before a war?

Here’s what some gas ration cards looked like during WWII.  Will there be rationing under this kind of system?  What better way to control the movement and actions of the populace…

WWII era gas ration cards via Old Chester PA.  You couldn’t go on vacation without a “vacation pass”.

Under this new Executive Order, cabinet heads are authorized to loan money, offer loan guarantees and even subsidize payments at above market rates (no bid contracts?) for whatever they need.   This could make Solyndra or Halliburton look like Junior Achievement.   Nothing like a war will generate these kinds of huge profits for the corporate “partners” and you can bet the bankers and contractors are already lining up for this one — because under this order no war is even required!

In a crisis situation, the government will be able to take whatever they need, print money to get whatever they want and distribute it as they see fit….for the benefit of a “war effort” or the politically connected corporations and individuals.  All other contracts except those for employment are superseded by this executive order, it’s all here in black and white.

Specifically, it orders:

“to require acceptance and priority performance of contracts or orders (other than contracts of employment) to promote the national defense over performance of any other contracts or orders, and to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense, is delegated to the following agency heads:

(1)  the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;

(2)  the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;

(3)  the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources;

(4)  the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;

(5)  the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and

(6)  the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials.

About all I can say is “Have a nice day!”

Executive Order — National Defense Resources Preparedness



By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended (50 U.S.C.

Section 101.  Purpose.  This order delegates authorities and addresses national defense resource policies and programs under the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended (the “Act”).

Sec102.  Policy.  The United States must have an industrial and technological base capable of meeting national defense requirements and capable of contributing to the technological superiority of its national defense equipment in peacetime and in times of national emergency.  The domestic industrial and technological base is the foundation for national defense preparedness.  The authorities provided in the Act shall be used to strengthen this base and to ensure it is capable of responding to the national defense needs of the United States.

Sec103.  General Functions.  Executive departments and agencies (agencies) responsible for plans and programs relating to national defense (as defined in section 801(j) of this order), or for resources and services needed to support such plans and programs, shall:

(a)  identify requirements for the full spectrum of emergencies, including essential military and civilian demand;

(b)  The Secretary of Homeland Security shall:

(1)  advise the President on issues of national defense resource preparedness and on the use of the authorities and functions delegated by this order;

(2)  provide for the central coordination of the plans and programs incident to authorities and functions delegated under this order, and provide guidance to agencies assigned functions under this order, developed in consultation with such agencies; and

  1. This is potentially confiscation, if put into action. The purpose of this order as I read it is simply to develop a plan, under peace time, in the event there is a national emergency, having everything in place to reduce confusion, establish sources for immediate requirements, etc. I believe this type of order has been going on since 1988. See the dates for previous Executive Orders shown in this section which are being revoked and replaced. Apparently similar orders have been issued since November 1988 (Ronald Regans second term). I have not read the previous orders apparently issued by Regan and Clinton, but it would appear they are similar in nature.

  2. It plainly says "emergency AND non-emergency" conditions. This means anytime they want, they can take whatever they want from whoever they want for any reason they want.

    We are now officially a communist dictatorship. Obama has crossed the line and must be charged with treason.

    • The sooner Obama is charged for treason we can find out other issues he has been hideing from the World.

      It's so obvious that he wants illegal people in the United States that are not required to show I.D. cards so they can illegally vote for him.

      Obama favors the US Muslim military guy who shot & murdered American's on the base at Fort Hood,Texas, but I'm sure he will have no compassion for the poor soilder who had a nervous break down from too many tours in Afganistan.

      It's dispicable to see children as suiside bomers, 5 year old daughter's given to perverted men for marriage toys, & wives & daughter's mudered for not obeying men.

      The Loving words of our LIVING GOD found in the HOLY BIBLE are the answer. JESUS came to earth to show us how to live, & died for our sins.
      If we believe how much GOD loves us, & that there is nothing we can do but accept Jesus to be our Savior
      we will have PEACE in our hearts now & eternal life. I have known GOD'S mercy & forgiving grace in my life for 50 years. My wish is that all would be open to the leading of GOD'S HOLY SPIRIT & BELIEVE.

    • there is more to this then meets the eye,first of all you disrepectful SOB'S President Obama can do only what he is told, now figure that shit out Sgt!!!!.

  3. The difference of Obama law vs previous presidents is – "It doesn’t even require the declaration of an emergency. It’s based upon national defense readiness, both in peacetime and during an emergency. It extends the powers of martial law at anytime the President sees fit. Martial law normally requires a breakdown of law and order. This President has determined he has the authority right now, today, to implement any measures he deems necessary to prepare the troops."

  4. At least our unconstitutional non natural born citizen bogus “president” has made it official. He’s now proclaimed himself, American Caesar.

    God have mercy upon our nation! And, may the just and holy Triune God cut short the resident stay of this undocumented worker, White House occupier!

    • How can a man of God be retired and say anything,true Men of God don't retired from the Word? Chew on that!
      what's false and what's real is it you?

  5. What are you doing about this Executive Order for Martial Law? Including National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), codifying indefinite military detention without charge or trial … Posse Comitatus Act is the United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385 the Act does not prohibit members of the Army from exercising state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain "law and order"; it simply requires that any orders to do so must originate with the United States Constitution or Act of Congress.

    Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia needs to sign HR 1160 and stop playing games or the Legislature will get their 2/3 to over ride the veto.

  6. I would then advise everyone to contact their local congressmen or women and ask questions about this bill!? Many of you don't . I have on other issues. To many people out there complain, post and throw scare tactics out there without getting to the facts.Get it straight from your elected in officials out there..Quit assuming and complaining and posting and do something about it people. The NDAA bill I hate to say was signed by mostly Republicans and I vote republican. I am not happy but I would like to know if people would call or write or e-mail their elected candidates and ask questions its easy just do it instead of posting without knowing truthfully what it

  7. As it turns out, Obama’s executive order is nearly identical to EO 12919, issued by President Clinton on June 7, 1994, which itself was an amendment to EO 10789, issued in 1958 by President Eisenhower, and which in fact, was later amended by EO 13286, issued in 2003 by George W. Bush.

  8. may be easily abused as an excuse for tyranny on the road back to divine rights of the sovereign to take whatever he wants. this is why we devised a constitution after a long and costly war. this is why a great president set an example of turning down a kingship that our president is honoring in name only and perhaps not for long. The other two branches of government must overturn this or this or another president will overturn the other two branches of government if it is not already too late.

  9. WOW, remember government by "we the people"? Long term permissiveness and being politically correct has led to this along with monumental apathy.

  10. This is a carbon copy of what happened in the Philippines when Mr. Marcos wanted to stay in power and rule as a dictator. The Congress was closed and the Senate was closed and all military were paid a 50% increase in pay to in force the martial law procedures and kill all rogue folks.

  11. This is crazy! There is no need for this at this time. My only thought, is like other comments I have read, that he is getting ready to take over. With only a few short months before he can be ousted and a new president elected I think he is trying to secure his hold on this nation. I agree, we must contact all of our representatives in Congress and the Senate! Let them know how we feel, make them tell us exactly what this order means. This is OUR country and they are their to protect us and see that it stays that way. I really don't think he will be able to take this very far, but it is scary that he is even attempting to take such control!

  12. We the People of the United States of America, have no one to blame but ourselves!..Why do we KEEP electing the same Politicians in election after election?…As I have stated for more than a few years now, We the People need to demand Term Limits of no more than 8 years and also demand a Balanced Budget, just for starters!!!!

  13. I really wish the American people would pick a President with EEOC guidelines against job discrimination based on sex, age, national origin and religion. The idiots including GOP bigot wing destroyed America in 2008 by discriminating Romney & doing in again in 2012 so we can suffer more. The proven management skills and experience are what's needed today not political ideologue. God willing this nation will correct the injustices……at least, I hope so.

  14. Obama has made me nervous since Day 1. I remember him being sworn in and not placing his hand on the Bible. And I remember him making "mistakes" in his vows and allegedly doing them over and getting them "right" behind closed doors. I am not convinced he is U.S born, and I certainly do not believe he has our best interests in mind. In my eyes, Obama is a glorified communist, and he is leading this nation to disaster. I am ashamed to call myself an American because our government has turned into the laughing stock of the world. I believe it is time for a 3rd Continental Congress and an impeachment, but they'd likely be tried for treason by our backstabbing government. Those who wish to lead are the most ill-fit to do so.

  15. I am ashamed that I voted for the President . I was standing by him,because this is my country . I did not expect his betrayal of our USA how dare him. We have become a people so nieve,were like children needing to believe or I should say abused children that we go along,hopping we won`t be punished. It was easy for us not to look deeper.So here we are now and how do we fix it ,we thought we were, by voting and that turned out wrong! I agree with Rocco.Do we kiss it all good bye,do we fight ,write, pray? I think that WE THE people are in trouble. I wonder if this is how all the PEOPLE Hitler rounded up that did not fit in his world(New World Order) felt like?HELP!!!!!

    • We fix it be standing together & voting him out in November. We can't afford to have him in office another 4 years.We're doomed if that happens.

  16. It goes further back than WWII. Consider the 16th Amendment to the Constitution; how about the Federal Reserve? These were created because WWI already was in the works (planned by the insiders/elite/etc.). Open your eyes and get rid of the acceptance of the flim-flam you've been brainwashed(programmed) to believe.

  17. All of this is bigger than most will believe. We do not wrestle with flesh and blood but spirits and principalities in high places. All of this is prophetic and One World Govt. will happen. There is nothing anyone can do to stop The Word of God from being fulfilled. The mark of the beast is coming and everyone needs to decide who they will serve. You cannot serve both God and Mammon and anyone taking this mark on your rt hand or forehead will never enter the KIngdom of Heaven. God loves us and wants us to know that as long as man is in charge . . .chaos follows. Come Lord Jesus; King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

  18. i hope everyone of you all that voted for this idiot are happy with your decision, he wasnt born here, he shouldnt have ever been allowed to run for president and now hes going to carry us all into the end of days. i had no clue he was trying to do this but now i do and i hope you all can live with yourselves cause youve virtually signed all of our death certificates.

  19. Arden Christopherson is correct. Nobody can stop what is coming. Although you can't help others to understand the crisis at hand. Preach the word of God. Only the book of Revelation has foretold all that is happening now. Not Ancient Aliens, not Nostradamus, nothing. It's all in the Bible brothers and sisters.

  20. Now this is nothing new and nothing to freak out over because it has been tried before and failed but it is important that we all stay connected to our governments intentions.

    Now I am not at all insinuating or comparing our current administration to the Nazi Party but they used legislation much like this to their advantage. Have a read on the Decree of the Reich President for the Protection of People and State.

    There are power hungry folks in any and all governments so don't be made a fool of. Don't rely on anyone else to protect you and your family from enemies….foreign or domestic. Get involved and stay engaged.

  21. Get your passports why can… When our last chance to leave this coming mess comes it will be the last…we already have no chance to change what’s to come…you talk but you can’t show or fight without putting the ones you love in harm… It’s coming.. Be prepared… No matter if obama calls this order someone will.. The president is a figure to people.. But everyone has a boss and the people have no control anymore.. Nvr really have

  22. This was a Hugo Chavez-style Coup from the outset!

    He was elected by his COLLUSION MEDIA, his background and ideology being deliberately obfuscated.
    He has no respect for any of the institutions, people, principles, sacrifices or concept of this country, and never has.
    He was born into a Marxist household, reared and educated that way, then groomed as the perfect racial barrier-breaking candidate – with the primitive minds of a COLLUSION MEDIA so obsessed with race that they ignored the obvious signs of his pernicious INTENT! – Win one election, then consolidate One-Party rule using the vestiges of the country you stole into, and control the most powerful nation on Earth for the foreseeable future.

    Welcome to Obama's Amerika!

    (If you're a Conservative, Independent or rational Democrat, please feel free to friend me @ fb/norbit.peters)

  23. I find it very comforting reading comments from those that know what they are talking about.I went to hear him speak at Youngstown State in 2008 when he was running the first time. He had me standing up chearing because he was saying every thing I wanted to hear, Get rid of the lobbyist, clamp down on the special interest groups, get rid of NAFTA, all students will go to college, he will transform America ( that's where he got us, we all know we needed transformed, but not from the free enterprise system to COMMUNISM !!! ) He went around the nation telling the same story, which turned out to be nothing but lies. The major news media are part of the whole deal, the one world government, new world order. If they would have exposed him as they should, we would not be stuck with this traitor

  24. Here it is – 2 years later – and nothing dire has happened. Actually, almost nothing has happened in Congress since President Obama was sworn in. Remember Mitch McConnell's vow to make Obama a 'one term president'?

    I feel hopeless that we don't seem to be the UNITED States of America. Remember the old adage: UNITED, we stand; divided, we fall'? Truer words were never spoken.
