Stroke of the pen/King of the land.

The National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order, just signed by Presbo, grants him total command of all manufacturing, transportation, technology, resources, food, energy supplies, livestock, raw materials, healthcare facilities, and all visual and written media for whatever use and purposes that he so decides are “necessary”.  Doesn’t require a state of emergency.  Doesn’t require martial law or a war.

Means that whomever he wants to give money to, whatever he wants to commandeer, whatever he desires to manufacture, whatever he decides to stockpile, whatever energy boondoggle he wants to slush fund, he now can.  Without all of that messy bothering to have Congress ok with it.  No more worrying about conflicting laws, civil liberties, or private property rights.

Every other president up to now has signed orders as to what they will do re: power in event of something cataclysmic.  Presbo changed it so he can do that anytime.  No good crisis necessary.  May not need to even bother with that silly election thing any more if he can just get through this next one.

Becomes law of the land in 30 days unless Congress stops it.
