The Nationalization of the Communications System Just Got Its Marching Orders from Obama

Written by Gary North on July 11, 2012

Obama has signed an executive order outlining the nationalization of the entire communications system.

It is written in bureaucratese. I have no doubt that it was not understood by Obama. It is too detailed. It sets up a powerful new bureaucracy.

The language is limited to a national emergency. But an emergency on this scale is almost inconceivable. The government never discusses what could justify an executive order this comprehensive.

If such a threat to the nation (and the world) really exists, the voters should be given a detailed description of its nature. Congress should debate this. Solving it should be a high national priority.

If the answer is, “discussing this would create panic,” then democracy is a sham.

If the answer is, “we don’t know what might happen, so we are asserting total control in advance,” then this executive order should never have been signed. It transfers too much power to bureaucrats to determine when to implement it.

In 2011, Senate Democrats tried to get a law passed to give Obama this power. This attempt was no secret. You can read about this here. Republican opposition stopped it. No problem. Obama has simply imposed his own authority to take this power. This is now the law of the land.

My prediction: no future President will revoke this executive order.

This is no longer a nation run by the Constitution.

The executive order is long. Few people will read it. It authorizes the White House to take over the entire communications system on the authority of the President.

Lots of committees will be set up to lay down the new rules. But the bottom line is this: Obama thinks that this power belongs to the President.

It begins with a comprehensive declaration.

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. The Federal Government must have the ability to communicate at all times and under all circumstances to carry out its most critical and time sensitive missions. Survivable, resilient, enduring, and effective communications, both domestic and international, are essential to enable the executive branch to communicate within itself and with: the legislative and judicial branches; State, local, territorial, and tribal governments; private sector entities; and the public, allies, and other nations. Such communications must be possible under all circumstances to ensure national security, effectively manage emergencies, and improve national resilience. The views of all levels of government, the private and nonprofit sectors, and the public must inform the development of national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) communications policies, programs, and capabilities.

    Screw this SOB.

    Since, thanks to the courts, all laws are rubber and can be stretched or compressed to mean whatever the perverts called government wish from moment to moment, a new and horrible law is not much change. People need to answer 2 questions for themselves: How much is too much and When too much is reached, what is to be done?

    Can somebody please explain to me how this……(there are no words harsh enough!) egomaniacal moron just make up rules as he goes along and nobody is stopping him? I would really like to know how this works. I mean, if we are all created equal with certain inalienable rights, then I should be able to make up rules and expect Barry to bow and scrape, right? There are simply no words to describe this………whatever.

  4. Can't really see a problem with the White House wanting to use the nation's communication system to notify people of national emergencies. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

  5. It's not a case of the White House just wanting to "use" the nation's communication system — they will nationalize it on the President's say-so. Total and complete control of all communications, the vast majority private property. Where exactly in the Constitution is he given that power?

  6. I suggest you think a little deeper into this, Castro, Chavez, Stalin, Hitler, come to mind pretty quickly.

  7. Nowhere in the text does it say it would nationalize all communications.

  8. I suggest you read the actual text of the E.O.

  9. freedomfirst says:

    the no-brainer is that he can stop this website, Fox News, Rush, just to mention a few. He can freely make you believe whatever he wants. He or any president. THAT is a no-brainer!

  10. Really, Gary? More fear-mongering? I read the entire bill, and there is absolutely NOTHING in it that even REMOTELY mentions the possibility of nationalizing all communications. You are a joke.

  11. Uh, no, he can't. Show me where it states that he has the power to do that. Don't just say it. Prove it. As I already stated, I read the whole E.O. Nothing like that is in there.

    Obviously, Obama is getting ready to wage war domestically.

  13. Yea Screw this Obama SOB and MFing POS

    " All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void" Marbury vs Madison 5 US (2Cranch) 137, 174, 176, (1803)
    Obama can write all the EOs he wants. If they violate the constitution they are null and void..
    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rle making or legislation which would abrogate them." Miranda vs Arizona, 384 US 436 p. 491. There are more but you get the drift..

  15. Ranchman says:

    This was unnecessary, there was no problem with "communications" before this EO. He fabricated a problem and came up with a solution, a typical false flag which ultimately erodes the rights and freedom of Americans even more. I can see martial law being declared by this tyrant before the elections, he will never accept defeat. We need to be prepared for any and all possibilities.

    Remember 1776 and Keep Your Powder Dry!

  16. What's the point in even having a constitution then? Let's just skip the pretense that we have one & admit we have a government that rules by decree. And if you resist, too bad for you.
