Is this a sort of Homeland Security Politburo? American Republic replaced by Council of Governors? By Judi McLeod Tuesday, January 12, 2010
imageQuietlyeven stealthilyin the opening days of the New Year, President Barack Obama has set up a Council of Governors.
Like the 30-plus czars running America with neither the peoples nor the congresss blessings, the Council of Governors is already a done deal.
Is this a first step towards Marshall Law, or a tie to the InterPol, RAND National Police Force stuff weve been hearing about, asked a Texas patriot who tipped off Canada Free Press (CFP) after finding news of the new Council of Governors on Twitter. Is this a sort of Homeland Security Politburo?

I’d be more startled to see community organizer Bummer pass up any chance to organize his way into more muscle. So a coalition of Rat governors... sweet, right down his alley. I don’t recall George W. Bush doing the same with GOP governors.
Well, he can’t appoint a Governor. A Governor is a duly-sovereign individual elected as the “President” of whichever state. A Governor is not under any order of the President. I don’t like Sec. 2 Functions. Well, lets see. This basically makes the states into Provinces, and at the same time puts Governors under the direction of the Secretary of Defense, an appointed position, not elected. Haha, oh man. Yum yum Fascism. Delicious.
"A Republic. If you can keep it."
Is ol' Marsh still alive?
It would be nice if some folks who are so concerned about Martial Law could learn to spell it correctly.
Note to all Patriots: The word used to describe military-based rule in times of emergency is “martial”. Calling it “marshal” or “Marshall” (who the heck is Marshall?) makes you an easier target for lefties who think we’re all illiterate, inbred hicks.
Oh, and the term for a state leaving the Union is “secede”, not “succeed”.
That is all.
Opossum also may use this Council to intimidate any of the governors whose states are/will pass 10th Amendment Sovereignty resolutions.
The beginning of the end of freedom.
Martial law is close at hand.
You just described my finances since I got married eight years ago.
It’ll never happen, but in the event they try it.. I’ll start the Armed Revolution myself.
lol glad to see cfp is monitoring Free Republic and reporting the news from items we post! THANK YOU CFP FOR GETTING THE STORY OUT I KNOW YOU FOUND IT HERE :) on FR!
New Executive Order, IMPORTANT!
Today President Obama signed a new executive order, found here:
The executive order formed a Council of Governors, pursuant to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2008.
The Council will “strengthen further the partnership between the Federal Government and State governments to protect our Nation and its people and property”. Provisions include:
1. The Council shall meet at the call of the Secretary of Defense or the Co-Chairs of the Council to exchange views, information, or advice with the Secretary of Defense; the Secretary of Homeland Security; the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism; the Assistant to the President for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Engagement; the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Americas’ Security Affairs; the Commander,United States Northern Command; the Chief, National Guard Bureau; the Commandant of the Coast Guard; and other appropriate officials of the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense, and appropriate officials of other executive departments or agencies as may be designated by the Secretary of Defense or the Secretary of Homeland Security.
(a) matters involving the National Guard of the various States;
(b) homeland defense;
(c) civil support;
(d) synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States; and
(e) other matters of mutual interest pertaining to National Guard, homeland defense, and civil support activities.
Recall a few of those key items that I have highlighted...
If you remember the NSPD-51 “Continuation of Government”—martial law—that vests all power in the executive branch, identifies the individuals who will be responsible for the oversight of the CoG government. Here is an excerpt:
The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government. In order to advise and assist the President in that function, the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism (APHS/CT) is hereby designated as the National Continuity Coordinator. The National Continuity Coordinator, in coordination with the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (APNSA), without exercising directive authority, shall coordinate the development and implementation of continuity policy for executive departments and agencies. The Continuity Policy Coordination Committee (CPCC), chaired by a Senior Director from the Homeland Security Council staff, designated by the National Continuity Coordinator, shall be the main day-to-day forum for such policy coordination.” “The National Continuity Coordinator, in consultation with the heads of appropriate executive departments and agencies, will lead the development of a National Continuity Implementation Plan (Plan), which shall include prioritized goals and objectives, a concept of operations, performance metrics by which to measure continuity readiness, procedures for continuity and incident management activities, and clear direction to executive department and agency continuity coordinators, as well as guidance to promote interoperability of Federal Government continuity programs and procedures with State, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and private sector owners and operators of critical infrastructure, as appropriate. The Plan shall be submitted to the President for approval not later than 90 days after the date of this directive.” “The Secretary of Homeland Security shall coordinate the integration of Federal continuity plans and operations with State, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and private sector owners and operators of critical infrastructure, as appropriate, in order to provide for the delivery of essential services during an emergency.” “Continuity requirements shall be incorporated into daily operations of all executive departments and agencies.” Remember, under NSPD-51 a disaster will be declared in order to justify the Federal siezure of state and local functions under the control of the executive branch with the legislative and judicial brances operating as advisors. A disaster is defined as:
The directive states that this power could/would be exercised in the case of a “Catastrophic Emergency”, meaning “any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions ...”
Seriesly, thank you for making those hugh corrctions.
After all, we don’t want to loose our freedoms. :)
The National Hockey League is run by a Board of Governors, and we can all see how well THAT is working out /sarc
