Power by Executive Order

Communication SymbolAnother shadowy executive order was released last week from the White House — this one gives the President the power to effectively shut down or seize control of all private communications — and has many worried about its implications, especially with respect to the Internet.

Over the last week, the Internet has been buzzing with rumors of how these executive orders and military actions — like the administrations extension of the National Emergencies Act; the increasing number of large urban war drills in Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles , and Tampa; and the National Defense Resources Preparedness Order — are preparing the government for the possibility of a major civil uprising around election time.

Martial Law - People FightingThis newest executive order, “Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions”, outlines communication protocols and takeover procedures that government agencies would put into place during a national crisis.  The order would allow the Department of Homeland Security to seize and take control of all domestic telecommunications in case of a declared national emergency. What exactly constitutes a “National Emergency” is not outlined in the executive order.

The White House insists that the order is meant to direct government agencies to develop communication plans for natural emergencies like a nuclear attack or terrorist strike. But some suggest that it may cover a lot more than national emergencies. In fact, section 5.2(e) of the order reads:

 “The Secretary of Homeland Security shall … satisfy priority communications requirements through the use of commercial, Government, and privately owned communications resources, when appropriate.”

When appropriate? Seems like a pretty broad statement that could include just about any situation that they want to deem “appropriate”.

This is More Important than Political Affiliations.

Whether you agree with this administration’s policies or not, the groundwork that they’ve laid with these executive orders is pretty disturbing.

As the country continues to fight over liberal vs conservative, left vs right, red vs blue; the Constitution is shredded to pieces by government officials on BOTH sides of the political aisle. In my opinion, it really doesn’t matter if you believe this administration would use these powers in the wrong way or not. The fact is, they have laid the foundation for this administration — or any future administrations — to use these powers in any way they want on the American Public.

    think it time to move to Alaska or Canada.How did this even make it out of congress

    • Mike says:

      It is an executive order. Bypasses Congress completely. The real question should be why EO#12472 was revoked and replaced with this one. 12472 included some checks and balances while this order does not.

    When posting information as such please include web adress to information source (act,bill,document,law,etc.) Gov has all this information on there websites and can be directly linked to for verification and credibilty

    Yeah but some people just want to be spoon fed. If they’re not reading the EO’s on their own, they must not be very concerned about it.

    With all due respect to you and all the great work you and many other freedom fighters are doing.

    Unless you get Americans to stop watching TV and off their iPhones and FB, I sadly doubt you will get the much greater traction you really need to stop or meaningfully influence this incredible theft of liberties.

    The entire world used to look up to the USA as the beacon of light and freedom (I know I did as child) and now, only the vague memory of a great civilization remains.

    Before anyone gets upset about my humble words (due to the programming you have been fed all of your life from MSM), look at yourselves in the mirror and ask, how far off the mark I really am and why do we refuse to admit the unfortunate facts of where we really are?

    Although in another country, I’m also as ready as I can be however; I have the feeling that the way things in the USA unfold, will set the direction for the rest of the world, as it has usually been this way since the last century.

    Sending you my best wishes from Canada

    You’ve never heard of the Emergency Broadcast System? You folks are creating Mass Hysteria. I think some logic needs to be applied to this site. You come across as bigot lunatics a lot.

    • Mike says:

      Yes we’ve heard of it. This EO is not adding to the EBS structure. It is removing former checks and balances and distributing way too much power than needed to effectively communicate during an emergency. It may not affect us immediately, but leave the bank vault open and eventually someone’s going to use it to their advantage. Take some time to actually read and study this EO and compare it to EO#12472 and then you might understand the implications here.

    After investigating this Executive Order, which I suppose all of you have… I found a lot of info on it. There is a NS/EP Committee all ready in force since 1984! There are officers that over see that committee also. The Executive Order was in place by Bush Sr. To have control over all communication during a national crisis. Obama has edited that original order to include Internet and Wireless communications that were not available in 1984 when the EO was originally passed. And it does clearly state, terrorism, nuclear attack. I’m on the fence as far as who I am voting for in Nov. But I am VERY sure I would gladly give up my internet or cell phone for a while if we were under attack! To make sure the right people were talking to eachother, not asking what you had for lunch!
