March 18, 2012 – (updated 8:10 pm) Barack Obama released an executive order for the preparation of national defense resources. Some might say this may be a readiness measure for martial law or an attack on the United States. Why is this order being issued as a press release? Is this order a prelude to peace time martial law?
Read this press release thoroughly folks, this lays the ground work for peace time martial law but doesn’t necessarily mean anytime soon. Not quite the time for freaking out just yet.
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.
It’s actually just a reworking of existing Clinton & Reagan orders to incorporate DHS. (and they got it from Truman & Nixon). -JRoycroft
