    Executive Order -- National Defense Resources Preparedness

    Executive Order -- National Defense Resources Preparedness | The White House

    This is some scary stuff. If I read it correctly, the president will have the authority to size pretty much everything in the event of a national emergency and become a dictator.

    It is the continuation of an EO from 1994.

    this order does nothing to give a POTUS dictatorial powers in the event of an emergency, nor the power to "seize everything".

    basically, this is just another chicken-little paranoia Conspiracy Theory thread.

    It would come as absolutely no surprise, if the government's reaction to a nationwide catastrophe was to institute martial law and nationalize everything including the contents of your own personal pantry.

    why would the federal govt. nationalize everyone's personal property?

    sounds kinda paranoid to me, Goshin.

    Except that is not included in this EO. The EO basically requires "Executive departments and agencies (agencies) responsible for plans and programs relating to national defense (as defined in section 801(j) of this order), or for resources and services needed to support such plans and programs" to "identify, assess, be prepared, improve, foster cooperation" in the event of a national emergency. The reason for the EO is when the original was made, there was no Department of Homeland Security, so this includes them in preparing for a national emergency.

    Sorry you feel that way.




    What about laws against "hoarding" in an emergency? If that isn't nationalizing your personal pantry, what is?

    Yes but it gives them authority to do so much in the name of national defense
