Posted on 03/08/2014 5:30:50 AM PST by PapaBear3625
I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, find that the actions and policies of persons -- including persons who have asserted governmental authority in the Crimean region without the authorization of the Government of Ukraine -- that undermine democratic processes and institutions in Ukraine; threaten its peace, security, stability, sovereignty, and territorial integrity; and contribute to the misappropriation of its assets, constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat. I hereby order:
Section 1. (a) All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person (including any foreign branch) of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in: any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State:

Technically, could this be interpreted as an order to seize the assets of the Russian government?
Worded in such a way that it takes a lawyer to understand it. I’m sure Putin is scared to death.
MORE Blah,Blah from Oblah blah the Brown Clown!
Sounds like a treaty.
So where is the Senate approval?
Obama dictates international law
I’m sure the Russian KGB/mafia-connected oligarchs will be impressed when he seizes their property
Soros has been destabilizing Ukraine for years- lets see obama take his stuff
this putz could start WW3 with an executive order
And since when we he take assets from everyone he sees fit.
It could be just meaningless.
Either way, it's probably going to turn out to have been a really stupid thing to do.
I thought this was satire. What does the loony-tune think he’s going to accomplish by declaring an executive order in the U.S. regarding Ukraine?
What he says is misleading. We haven’t been threatened except in retaliation to his threat. He’s so full of crap.
This is not meaningless at all. It is a direct threat to expropriate Russian asests. Putin and his oligarch buddies will notice.
Section 1. (a) All property and interests in property that are in the United States...???
Does “all” mean like “ALL”?
Yours, mine, theirs???
It’s blocking trade and funds between the US and Russia....of “certain persons”. In other words...the politically incorrect are targeted financially. It’s so “in your face” commie/fascist that I had to look to see if it was satire.
It's not about Ukraine. It's about taking over all control of the government of the U.S. by executive order. Read these words CAREFULLY.
"... and I hereby declare a national emergency ..."
I wondered that, too. If anyone donates to a Russian source or buys a product that is sourced to Crimea, could you have your actions sanctions and your property confiscated?
you know it’s really weird because about an hour ago before I even opened this thread, I was thinking of doing a bank run just in case things got frozen up ... hmm... I put nothing past these hooligans these days. Scary times peeps.
Clown Prince nobama is the ultimate LIB/DIM. He is not only insane...he’s CRIMINALLY insane.
Der Leader don’t need no stinkin’ Constitutional or Congressional approval. All hail, Prez Stompy Feet!
That goblety goop could mean anything and all things. Smells to like he’s hit the button on every US citizen.
Instead..they use this Admin's political filter to pick and choose losers, by the stroke of a pen...what a shock./s
Its blocking trade and funds between the US and Russia....of certain persons. In other words...the politically incorrect are targeted financially. Its so in your face commie/fascist that I had to look to see if it was satire.
No, what is “commie/fascist” is invading your neighbor with a fifth column of soldiers with no insignia. Then naval blockading them. Those are war crimes. How dare a POTUS respond to that. Your Kenyan Derangement Syndrome needs treatment.
