Teddy Roosevelt: 3 Others Prior To FDR: NONE FDR: 11 in 16 years Truman: 5 in 7 years Ike: 2 in 8 years JFK: 4 in 3 years LBJ: 4 in 5 years Nixon: 1 in 6 years Ford: 3 in 2 years Carter: 3 in 4 years Reagan: 5 in 8 years Bush 1: 3 in 4 years Clinton: 15 in 8 years Bush 2: 62 in 8 years Obama: 923 in 3½ years!

If you don’t get the implications you’re not paying attention. How many warnings do you need?

Scary! 923 Executive Orders in 40 Months

During my lifetime, all Presidents have issued Executive Orders, for reasons that vary, some more than others.

When a President issued as many as 30 Executive Orders during a term in Office, people thought there was something amiss.



Even some Democrats in the House have turned on him, plus a very small number of Democrat Senators question him.



Not really surprising that he appointed “Czars” to be in charge of everything.

Emperor Obama?

Coming soon to a neighborhood near you.


Remember what he told Russia ‘s Putin: “I’ll be more flexible after I’m re-elected.”

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION: Obama has signed 923 Executive Orders in 40 months!

What did Congress do in those 40 months? (The House - considerable. The Senate -nothing, not even a budget nor allowing any House bill to be considered.) A whole new order must prevail in Washington DC as a result of this next election! Now look at these:

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels, and minerals.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 allows the government to take over all health, education, and welfare functions.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 designates the registration of all persons. Postmaster General to operate a national registration.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 assigns emergency preparedness functions to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

-EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institutions in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that, when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months.

Feel free to verify the “Executive Orders” at will... and these are just the major ones I’m sure you’ve all heard the tale of the “Frog in the Pot”... You comfortable??? Watch Obama’s actions, not his words! By his actions he will show you where America is headed.

Sounds to me like he is superseding the Constitution of the USA…… But, yet I did not find any provision in the U.S. Constitution for such Executive Orders.

Just this week, Obama has issued a new Executive Order that seeks to “harmonize” U.S. economic regulations with the rest of the world. This new Executive Order is yet another incremental step that is pushing us closer to a North American Union and a one world economic system.

Unfortunately, most Americans have absolutely no idea what is happening.

The American people need to understand that Barack Obama is constantly looking for ways to integrate the United States more deeply with the rest of the world. The globalization of the world economy has accelerated under Obama, and this latest Executive Order represents a fundamental change in U.S. economic policy. Now federal regulators will be required to “harmonize” their work with the international community.



Maybe now you can understand why article 5 of the US Constitution is so deeply needed.



Read the Rules

Isn't this because ofthe historical lack of action by congressional republicans.? The extreme tea party obstinance? The overuse/abuse of filibuster (in the 1st 2 years especailly) of this Pres term?

Isn't this because of the do nothing repub congress?

How about a lack of republicans that respect the principles of the republic?

It's not the republic part they have a problem with. That's easy to sell away to ALEC.

It's the democracy part they don't cotton to, as it effects their ability to affect the former.

Replace pro 1% extreme right wing conservative with pro 99% progressives, and protest for real change that benefits the people

If this is true-The email that states Obama has issued 900 executive orders and lists orders that previous presidents signed. The email also inaccurately describes those orders.

Then the cognitive infiltration is busy while deeply embedded. In checking, it apears the executive order 10990 is not about controlling road and seaports.


Meaning that article 5 is even more deeply needed so free speech can be restored. Or, if this erroneous message was intentionally sent out to make it appear as though internet information/conspiracy theory is all bunk, then we should ONLY meet face to face and discuss what facts are so ACCOUNTABILITY is maintained.

Not because you are a liar - but because you use easily provable data
