Two events took place earlier this year which have domestic implications, and which have no explanations from the White House as to why they occurred.
First, on March 16,2012 the president issued an executive order called The National Defense Resources Preparedness Order. This Order authorizes the president to approve the dispensing of all domestic energy,production,transportation,food and water supplies as he deems necessary to protect national security. The order makes it clear that the president’s power under this Order is not limited to time of war. He can take command and control of America’s resources in peacetime as well as war. The White House offered no explanation or justification for these powers. But they could be a precursor to a war in the Middle East. It is not clear.
Second, and at about the same time, Homeland Security placed an order for 450 million rounds of hollow point bullets. The Department would provide no explanation for such a massive order for an agency that has limited need for doing domestic harm.
So these events are curiously related in time, and domestic scope, and should raise questions in the minds of citizens as to what may be in store for the nation.
