    This is really long I know, but every American needs to read the powers Barack Obama has conferred upon himself and those he has delegated to unelected heads of departments and agencies. Basically the below executive order gives him (or those he has appointed ), dictatorial powers which he may invoke, WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF CONGRESS OR THE COURTS, should HE declare a national emergency. If you read carefully you will see that this is a framework for the takeover of virtually all national resources, including agricultural, manufacturing, natural, manpower (which could include a draft of civilians to meet human resource requirements), and private property.


    The White House

    Office of the Press Secretary

    For Immediate Release March 16, 2012 Executive Order -- National Defense Resources Preparedness

    NATIONAL DEFENSE RESOURCES PREPAREDNESS

    Python , only arguement i have is you know how much suffering a governemnt can cause folks in a few days let alone a few years ??

    i dont mean saddam , nor the PRC i'm talking western governments , like here in Australia and in the UK

    look at sweden , where you can be sued for race hatred for stopping a islamic gang rape of a non muslim woman

    why allow that even for a few seconds? we dont know how long ( we can guess and theres limits ) but it could be 10 years

    pol pot took 10 months to build his camps and kill his first million

    his next million only took 4 months ... , he got most of the "trouble makers" out the way with that..

    the Christians , The educated , those who could think for themselves or who had a higher authority than the national "brotherhood"

    different socialism but would you wish 10% of that on anyone ?? i does matter even after we have gone , if we can now help others , we should do so ..

    fighting evil is always a good thing to do

    just watching our own butts ??

    i'll leave that to those who are in politics

    It sounds dangerous, especially in light of how he has taken to cutting out Congress when he makes his diktats. This, coupled with his vision of a civilian army, the recent threats to imprison anyone who protests against or criticizes anyone protected by the Secret Service, and a few dozen other things worry me. Will he find some excuse/way of stopping the elections in November, or will he use massive voting fraud to get himself reelected?

    It's Agenda 21. United Nations implementation of control over our sovereignty. They plan on controlling every square inch of our country that they can. With these new rules... this task is just about wrapped up.

    I sure don't want to be seen as one who is taking up for this
    kenyan in any way...

    But if any reads the former Exec Order(s) [simply google the numbers and dates]that this affects...it is clear that with the exception of some consolidation of some cabinet positions/responsibilities etc...or removal of
    some etc....this Exec Ordr is about same content as you will find in
    previous (required orders) of past POTUS back to Reagan and previous...

    With most obvious changes simply due to technical or logistical changes
    or developments...especially as relates to our current national security
    practices....(as approved by Congress....)

    :)

    Like I say..I am not for this kenyan staying in office another term...but email scares
    like this and "death camps" and etc...arent needed to oust him...His beliefs as to
    our directions, and past failure to lead and accomplish will take care of this...in
    short...if true Americans vote, only the truth is needed.

    regards,

    (just my 2 cents)

    Jack, I'm well aware of the suffering that government can cause in just a few years. Christ said, "it will be a time of great suffering, the kind that has not happened from the beginning of the world even until now and certainly won't happen again". In just a few (7) years 2/3's of the worlds population will be dead, not a pretty picture. I try to help people everyday by warning them, very few listen.

    I'll be passing this on as well. Not even my idiot wife ( she married me after all! ) thinks Obammy walks on water. This should convince her that the little Hitler has plans for this country.

    If Obozo is kicked out on the street in November, it won't matter! Nothing will change! The new POTUS will keep all the power that Obozo has given to the office, and add to it. If you believe there is a God, and if you believe the Bible is his word, then you know that a One World Government is almost imminent. I for one will fight it in any way I can, but I know that it has to happen sooner, or later.

    You're absolutely right carver, nothing will change regardless of who is in power, "if you believe God's word". It's frustrating trying to convey to people the enormous danger they face in these "last days' and the horror that is soon to come. This world has become so screwed up, black is white, up is down, the historic beacons of normalcy and morality, the church and Christians have morphed into something unrecognizable. So many are now mired in the pig pen of post modernism and emerging New Age lies. Then there's this whole issue of time. Unbelievers dance on the precipice of eternity everyday, not realizing that the political and economic landscape is gelling into that socialistic lie of a New World Order. The United States as we have always known it, is gasping it's last breaths of freedom, never to be the same again. Our lives are about to change, and not for the better! Regarding Bible prophesy pertaining to the "last days", the puzzle pieces are falling into place more every single day. It won't be much longer before a catastrophic event occurs that will rock this world and change international relations forever. Just about every person on this earth seems to have a nagging sense that something is about to happen. They are right.

    Speaking the unvarnished truth isn't the popular thing to do, but I'm not out to be elected prom king, which at my age, is a moot point anyway. Prophesy constitutes almost 1/3 of the Bible, it's food for spiritual growth, it can and should be green pastures for disciples. Most Christians believe with their minds that Jesus is returning, but they don't believe with their hearts, and therefor their belief has no impact on their behavior. Bible prophesy doesn't just relate to the future. It has an important spiritual relevance to the way we live our lives in the present. Bible prophesy provides very definite signs that we are to watch for which will signify the season of the Lords return. The great tragedy of our day is that the loudest scoffers are religious leaders who profess to follow Christ. Such leaders crucified Jesus the first time He came. They now scoff at the promise of His return. In 1 Thessalonians 5:20 the apostle Paul pleads with us to treat prophesy with respect: "Do not despise prophetic utterances".

    Consider the understanding of current events. The Bible contains detailed prophesies about the "last days" we're living in, and there is just no way to fully understand much of what is happening today apart from those prophesies. Three characteristics of our day and time immediately come to mind: the intensifying decay of our society, the growing apostasy in the church, and the escalating crisis in the Middle East. All three of these situations are prophesied in the Bible. We are told that society would be as violent and immoral as it was in the days of Noah (Matthew 24:37-39); that the church will be assaulted with "doctrines of demons" (1 Timothy 4:1); and that all nations of the world will come against Israel over the issue of who will control Jerusalem (Zechariah 12:2-3). And all just like Jesus said in Mark 13:30, in this the "last generation". Yes, if you believe there is a God, and if you believe the Bible is His word, the One World Government/New World Order is imminent, not almost.
