EXECUTIVE ORDER /<quoted text>
Putin throws down Obama
Obama is a weak leader. His biggest goals are attacking the 1st, 2nd and forth amendment. He also feels gay rights are more important that the US economy. The worst president ever. Will I be audited?
Without an exception everyone I personally know in New Mexico wants Obama gone but not just from his job, gone from the country or placed in jail. I am an American and I want America to be what it is supposed to be, a shining example of freedom and liberty for humanity but in the last five years we are clearly going backwards. In time I am sure the American people will prevail and elect more responsible leaders, as it is I am not happy with the direction we are going and hoping for a better future. Please April wrote:
EO 13303 /
Effective Date: May 28, 2003 http://tinyurl.com/ca3se
I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, find that the threat of attachment or other judicial process against the Development Fund for Iraq, Iraqi petroleum and petroleum products, and interests therein, and proceeds, obligations, or any financial instruments of any nature whatsoever arising from or related to the sale or marketing thereof, and interests therein, obstructs the orderly reconstruction of Iraq, the restoration and maintenance of peace and security in the country, and the development of political, administrative, and economic institutions in Iraq. This situation constitutes 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.
Executive Order: Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq / July 17, 2007 / http://tinyurl.com/4e4pmha
The Executive Order signed by Bush on July 17 is entitled "Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq".
This order authorizes the confiscation of any and all properties belonging to two classes of American citizens (or anyone else for that matter):
1. Anyone who opposes the administration's "peace and stability program" in Iraq. In other words, anyone who opposes the occupation of Iraq by American forces.
2. Anyone who can be accused of "undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction", or those who oppose the confiscation and privatization of Iraq's oil resources - otherwise known as the "Oil Sharing Agreement" which gives 87 % of the revenues from Iraq oil to the Anglo-American oil giants. Anyone with a sense of history knows that this is the result of the Cheney-Oil company Energy Plan. The one which divvied up the Iraqi oil fields to the American oil companies; yes, the energy plan the administration refused to disclose because of "Executive Privilege".
This Order violates the First Fourth and Fifth Amendments of the Constitution. It removes the right of free speech and expression and the right to dissent.
It has not been discussed by the Congress, nor has it been disclosed by the media. The same media which parroted the administration's lies to justify invading Iraq all those years ago.
Of all the illegal acts by this administration, it seems to me the self declared right to confiscate the property of citizens without due process of law should be the final straw.
If congress - both Republican and Democrat - do not do something NOW to bring this criminal conspiracy to the bar of justice, it seems to me that they are just as guilty as the administration.
In that case we can kiss our nation goodbye. I wonder, is this how the citizens of Germany felt in the 1930s?
