Martial Law by Executive Order - An Obama Dictatorship?
Published on 2012-05-16 12:05:00
I have a hard time believing that anyone could establish a dictatorship here in the U.S., but, seeing how, with every breath, Obama believes that he knows best how to run our lives, it is not a far stretch to believe that he might try it. His usurpation of Congressional powers, his disdain for the Supreme Court and the Constitution, and the systematic enactment of the NDAA and this executive order gives us all reason to become more vigilant and aware of what could happen. Terrorism is the crisis that Obama and the far left may well take advantage of to solidify their control of the government and our lives.Excerpt: President Obama's National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order of March 16 does to the country as a whole what the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act did to the Constitution in particular -- completely eviscerates any due process or judicial oversight for any action by the Government deemed in the interest of "national security." Like the NDAA, the new Executive Order puts the government completely above the law, which, in a democracy, is never supposed to happen. The United States is essentially now under martial law without the exigencies of a national emergency.Finally, the 2012 NDAA was hurried through the House and Senate almost like a covert op with minimal public attention or debate. It was then signed by the president at 9:00 PM on New Year's Eve while virtually nobody was paying attention to much other than the approaching new year. This new Executive Order was written and signed in complete secret and then quietly released by the White House on its website without comment. All this was done under a president who studied constitutional law at Harvard.Read full Huffington Post article here.
