Dear Friends, PLEASE CHECK THIS OUT! Things are moving very fast now. The Powers That Shouldn't Be are finally playing their full hand. The United States of America have been declared a Soviet-style tyranny, down to the control of your labor and everything you own. Not a joke.


Text of entire Executive Order posted on this thread. Read it, your jaw will drop, I guarantee.





Eerrrrrr - what's up Doc? :hmm

Not for the faint of heart. Scroll to Part II for a quick idea of what it's about, then read the rest.

Do we know if this was actually signed by Obama as claimed? Not questioning you just the site listed.

We may want to pin this in the political section for a while :sherlock

I am waaaay too busy to read the whole thing, even just Part 3, could someone summarize the bad parts in a couple sentences? I skimmed Part 3 and nothing popped out at me. Something about the FedRes and supplies and loans.

So the first question for me is why now? Why?

After looking through several forums, I happen to agree with some of the ideas posted.

To whit -

This executive order basically says that our government is now prepping to nationalize all private property and persons in preparation for war.

The government can take anything it needs whether you want them to or not.

It also means they can use any people they think are necessary, whether those people want to go or not.

The government can use your property anyway it wants to, including putting government (military) equipment on your property, if they think it is necessary.

Lastly, they do not have to be in an emergency or war to enact these abilities.

To be clear, it says it will take control of all food, water and people it feels necessary for national defense.

I really hope, I am making something out of this that it is not, but reading on other blogs and forums, the consistent thing people are saying is that this, above anything else that has happened recently, is making people believe something big is looming.

We are prepping for a war with our chief manufacuring supplier - China and, maybe, Russia. China and Russia have said they will defend Iran, even to the point of third world nuclear war, if necessary. Israel and United States seem guaranteed to invade Iran soon. Maybe these things are connected.

It sounds as if we are going to be supporting ourselves in this war and the leaders know it.

I have to say, I didn't expect this under Obama. :evil

Edited to add: It is time to finalize your preps - ASAP.

They read ZT: (1)

Quote:
The Zeta's have recently explained that the 7 of 10 scenarios are to be slowed down as well as explaining that their predictions were always worst case scenarios. My question is: they've predicted 90% of the world's population to be lost to the PS. Is that also a WORST CASE scenario? Could the possible outcome also only be, say, 40%? Or is the 90% a hard, definite number?

SOZT
There is much confusion regarding the deliberately held back pace of the 7 of 10 plate movements, and how this interference with the natural order of events during a passage of Planet X might affect our overall predictions. The 7 of 10 plate movements are going to occur regardless of how much they are held back at the start. Every jerk of the Earth during the daily wobble is impelling them to MOVE. There are steps and stages in the plate movements as the hour of the pole shift approaches. What this delay means is that one of the plateaus will be shortened. The other 7 of 10 scenarios will follow each other with greater speed. And that there will be overlap with the later 7 of 10 plate movements and 8 of 10 scenarios.

Those who are confused about the deliberate delay are thinking of a continuum, a linear series of events where a delay in one place translates to a delay in the overall. If a skier on a steep slope were held back by a cord, so his pace was slowed, what would be the result? If the cord were cut, then the skier would pick up speed but his speed at the bottom would not be what it was formerly. His ability to accelerate would have changed. This would be the case if the Earth changes were linear, with only one impetus rather than many. The Earth wobble is an impetus that is a DAILY affair. It is a skier put on the slope daily, and each day the slope more steep than the last. Where his speed was slowed on one day, on the next he would arrive at the bottom SOONER, and with greater speed.

Interfering with the pace of change thus has consequences. We have explained that the end result,
http://zetatalk.com/ning/18fe2012.htm
the pole shift, would not be altered. Where a deliberate delay has been allowed essentially at the START of the 7 of 10 plate changes, to break the cover-up, this would certainly not be the case by the time the Last Weeks had arrived. Likewise, the 90% death rate we have predicted was NOT due to death from injury or drowning but rather due to depression,
http://www.zetatalk.com/xtime/x24.htm

giving up because life was just not going to be the same and unlikely to return to a pre-shift level in their lifetimes. This is a CHOICE that humans are allowed to make.
EOZT

Prior ZT: http://zetatalk.com/ning/18fe2012.htm
Thus, temporarily, the pace of change here on Earth will be slowed, but not averted. Nor is the ultimate result or timeframe being changed.

Prior ZT: http://www.zetatalk.com/xtime/x24.htm
The 90% die-off that we have predicted, as we have stated, will not occur simply because of the shift. Most will die because of depression, failure to thrive, sitting down with a slight injury and not eating or drinking, as occurs after all calamities.

Hmm, so maybe the new law and expected war are intended as diversions to prevent the events described in this video from coming in to reality?

President Obama has just been hosting British Prime Minister David Quisling* Cameron and maybe behind the public smiles some very dark plans were being formulated?

L2L, I too would like a vote on such events.

re: Zetatalk and Px, I've heard it said that if one looks at the sun through the 'disk' part of an old computer floppy disk then it is possible to see Px.

I am yet to try this for myself.

The webbots quoted a week-long dateline for early March which more or less proved accurate, with Greece defaulting right at the very end of the dateline. I've seen speculation that we are poised to experience a major tectonic event (perhaps Weds / Thurs this week 21/22 March 2012). "We shall see" is my response.

Commentary from Natural News:

Other signs of the takeover
• Last year, I interviewed Farmer Brad in central Texas, who openly stated, on camera, that FEMA has already started calling farms across Texas and demanding an inventory list of all their crops and seeds. Watch this interview yourself at: http://tv.naturalnews.com/v.asp?v=72620 ... D4857C08EC

• Yesterday in Chicago, the police arrested NBC reporters outside a hospital, screaming that their First Amendment rights could be taken away from them at any time:
http://www.prisonplanet.com/cop-arrests ... ur-first...

• Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta recently revealed in U.S. Senate testimony that the Obama administration takes its orders from the UN and that the U.S. Congress is now null and void. (http://wethepeoplefree.com/constitution ... -panetta...) and (http://www.infowars.com/coup-detat-pent ... gress-ce...)

• When MF Global head Jon Corzine stole billions of dollars from investors (many were farmers), there were absolutely no investigations, no indictments and no criminal arrests! Massive financial theft is now openly tolerated in America as long as those doing the stealing are politically connected to the Obama administration. (http://www.prisonplanet.com/the-cojones ... rzine.html)

Of course, it's not an Obama thing. Bush was much the same. It's not the name of the person in the Oval Office who matters, it's the fundamental lack of principles and ethics reflected across government today. Instead of protecting the rights of the People, today's corrupt governments are little more than criminal gangs who steal power and resources for themselves (and their connected buddies) while destroying the economy and stealing everything in sight from the real workers upon whose sweat-drenched backs America was built.

What's the government buying these days? Hollow point bullets, hardened checkpoint booths and radiation pills


...... what happens if we profile the purchasing behavior of the U.S. government? What do we find?

Bullets, bullet-proof roadside checkpoint booths, and anti-radiation pills.

Just a few weeks ago, the federal government initiated a contract for acquiring 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition. "The special hollow point effectively passes through a variety of barriers and holds its jacket in the toughest conditions,"...... This ammo is for the Department of Homeland Security as well as ICE.

******************************************************
rutsuyasun:(NOTE: I read the original document detailing the contract to purchase the ammunition. {ATK Secures .40 Caliber Ammunition Contract with Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (DHS, ICE)} It states that the contract is for a MAXIMUM of 450,000 million rounds, not a TOTAL of that number. Now that's not to say that they won't fill that quota, but just want to straighten out that misconception.
Quote:
This contract features a base of 12 months, includes four option years, and will have a maximum volume of 450 million rounds.

*******************************************************

.....no one buys hollow point bullets for target practice.

....the far more expensive hollow point ammo is ballistically designed to shred internal organs upon impact.

....The DHS is a domestic agency. It does not fight wars overseas. It almost exclusively concerns itself with the American people on American soil. That the DHS is contracting to buy 450 million rounds of hollow point ammo can only mean DHS plans to need this ammo to be used against the American people.

.....DHS has now bought tens of millions of dollars worth of bullet-proof roadway checkpoint booths featuring level-3 bulletproof glass
http://www.prisonplanet.com/after-huge- ... ooths.html

.....Oh, by the way, DHS is also acquiring monstrous assault vehicles which you can see pictured here:
http://www.prisonplanet.com/homeland-se ... us-swat-...

.....In addition to the hollow point ammo and the bulletproof checkpoint booths, the U.S. government has also purchased $400,000 worth of potassium iodide pills -- the kind of pills you take to avoid damage to your thyroid in the wake of radioactive fallout.

....possible situations that would result in DHS activating their plans to take over America's roadways and set up armed checkpoints across the nation: (explanation of the reasons for each of the following is at the article link.)

• Fukushima disaster followed by radiation wave.

• Grid down.

• Financial collapse followed by social unrest. In this scenario

• False flag terror attack followed by declaration of Martial Law.

• Pandemic outbreak and quarantine of cities.

• No emergency at all: DHS could decide to just implement all the checkpoints even without any event happening. It could all be put in place merely as part of their prisoner training agenda, which the TSA has been carrying out for years in the airports. Sort of a "get used to living in a police state" psychological tactic.
