I received an e-mail yesterday telling me about the alarming move by Barack Obama to create martial law:
In a stunning move, on March 16, 2012, Barack Obama signed an Executive Order stating that the President and his specifically designated Secretaries now have the authority to commandeer all domestic U.S. resources including food and water. …The EO also states that the President and his Secretaries have the authority to seize all transportation, energy, and infrastructure inside the United States as well as forcibly induct/draft American citizens into the military. The EO also contains a vague reference in regards to harnessing American citizens to fulfill “labor requirements” for the purposes of national defense.
And I took this directly from www.whitehouse.gov. No need to check Snopes!!!!
Even though it says there’s no need to check it out on Snopes, I did visit Snopes and learned this is actually an update to an existing policy that’s been around for many years, for many decades in some respects. The update included the Department of Homeland Security, for example, that didn’t exist a few years ago.
So it’s OK to get alarmed by the police state aspect of it, but it’s nothing new.
