ASSIGNMENT OF NATIONAL SECURITY AND EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS COMMUNICATIONS FUNCTIONS
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.

They’re gonna take our free speech.
Obama’s in a tight election - he’s not going to leave anything to chance.
and who’s going to stop him?
Why? How? Explain!
The take over begins. Civil liberties be dammed.
It means that the feds want to take over all means of communications, including this one (the internet). That isn’t going to happen, no matter how hard they try. As long as I have a source of electronic parts, I can get a signal out, and no one can stop me. The genie has been let out of the bottle.
Maybe this is why the FBI will be shutting down parts of the internet on Monday. “This is a test, for the next 24 hrs... blah blah blah... this is only a test”
The virus warning is just a cover up for this EO.
Each and every state shall form a militia,to be defined as a “Continental Militia” that receives no funding nor direction from the Federal Government.
This Continental Militia cannot be disbanded by any other branch of the Armed Forces.
And those states shall train and equip its ranks to defend that states borders from invasion or usurpation of a higher elected office on the Federal level.
Never let a crisis go to waste...
Are you in Portland?
If I have to do it from scratch, including building batteries, it might take a day, not counting cigarette and coffee breaks and lunch.
Like Steffie told Bill Clinton, “Stroke of the pen, law of the land”....
I am reading it right now but not sre what it means. I notice it revoked an order President Reagan did and ammended another. “b) Executive Order 12472 of April 3, 1984, as amended, is hereby revoked.
(c) Executive Order 12382 of September 13, 1982, as amended, is further amended by striking the following language from section 2(e): “in his capacity as Executive Agent for the National Communications System”.
It means I despise Barack Obama a little more than I did before knowing he did this. I didn't think that was possible, until now.
Every day, drip drip drip. And to think there are people who will not support the Republican Presidential Candidate because he “is just as bad as Obama”.
Really? There are two guys, one of them HATES AMERICA AS FOUNDED and the other is a RINO. Yeah, they're identical twins. Geez...
Come November, what will be, will be. It will be the beginning or the end depending on your perspective.
Amen, brother. I may have to solder with a hot rock, but as long as I can dig up an 807 and a hunk of wire, there’ll be communications...Obama EO or not.
Are you a DXer?
