Let’s address the President’s new 23 Executive Orders, shall we? They look like gun control on the outside, but they are so much more than that. These are the most treacherous executive orders possible. These were NOT simply thought up in the few weeks since Sandy Hook. These types of documents require many months to conceptualize and then many months to get ‘sign off’ from all the affected parties. There are 23 of them- so add up all the months that would require. When documents like these are specific, they are specific for a reason and when they are vague, they are vague for a reason. Specificity gives control while vagueness gives great latitude in implementation. But all of this requires a lot of thought and revision. This is the type of work I used to do when I worked as an international management consultant. Believe me, you can’t get 10 managers to sign off on even one of these types of documents in under a year, let alone 23 documents that involve the president of the United States of America. Especially when they are tantamount to overturning the entire Bill of Rights for every U.S. Citizen during emergencies.
No, these executive orders were already written, well before Sandy Hook ever happened. Sandy Hook was the critical catalyst to getting these passed and nothing more. Nothing short of dead children could make Americans look away so far from the Second Amendment. I believe that the Sandy Hook massacre was a government ploy. Ever see ‘Wag the Dog?’ Same concept.
Below, I have listed the titles of the Executive Order and have given you their translated meaning. You can read the Orders for yourself if you don’t believe my translations. One thing I can tell you for sure: there is zero accountability to Congress for any of these executive orders.
Reading laws, bills or executive orders can be tricky, very tricky. You need to understand the political context in which they were written, who wrote them, and why they were written before you read them. You must look for what is said and what is NOT said to fully understand their meaning. Remember the following guidelines whenever you read a law, bill, or Executive Order:
- Always replace “me” with “citizen”, ‘person’, ‘terrorist’ or ‘criminal’. Whatever can happen to any person ‘is’ you. Personalize it and see how you feel about it. If you don’t like it, then don’t support it.
- Unless a law specifically limits the government, the government is not limited.
- If the law fails to describe legal redress, legal redress does not exist.
- Unless the law forces transparency, transparency does not exist.
- If a power is given, it will never be given back to the People unless the People demand it back.
- If the law doesn’t specifically address secrecy, secrecy will exist.
- If the law says the government can take something from you and doesn’t specifically say how you can get it back, you will never get it back. Example: If your child can be taken from you in one law but no law exists to define how you can get your child back, then you can NOT get them back.Observe and let your heart be faint:
1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.
‘Federal agencies’ is a pretty vague term, isn’t it? How about ‘relevant data’? Especially since the federal government has taken over such a HUGE part of the U.S. economy. Isn’t there a federal ‘agency’ that regulates just about every part of our lives? How about the IRS (what is your profession & how much do you make?), FBI (gulp), Department of Homeland Security (who knows what those guys collect), Dept. of Education (are we college educated or just high school educated?), Transportation (speeding tickets anyone?), US Military (were you a soldier?) and who knows what else! Very soon, there will be a new federal Cybersecurity Czar- a new ‘federal agency’. (see** below) This agency will have the power to put spyware on EVERY computer in the world- every server, satellite, relay station, phone, etc. Soooo… all that data on your computer- your emails, your blogs, your FB entries- all of that will be submitted to a ‘background check’ too.
All this would be bad enough if it was only limited to purchasing guns. But the text says nothing about limiting these background checks for gun purchases. And what did I say in my guidelines above? If the limitation isn’t specified, it doesn’t exist!
**My prediction came true. As of Dec 18, 2015, a Cybersecurity Bill was passed that empowered the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, a civilian agency in the DHS, to be the new government agency that funnels all our internet data to every other government agency. On May 11, 2017, President Trump wrote another Executive Order to strengthen the federal government’s power over the internet.
2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.
In other words, privacy laws (HIPPA) will be completely removed and your medical records will be used to create a ‘background’ assessment of some kind. It’s clear, after reading the totality of the 23 Orders, that this is not the same process or background check as the one currently being deployed when people buy guns. It is being used to create more of a ‘profile’ for each person. Think, “Big Brother”. It will also be used to assign you a ‘category’ (see #4 below). If you have any mental illness – even depression that is completely under control- or are taking medicine , it can be used as criteria to determine if you are ‘dangerous’ or not. Or, if you are or were a soldier with any emotional issues that needed some counseling, too bad for you! Divorced? Medicated for any reason? No gun for you and let’s see… yes, here is the perfect ‘category’ for you in the next emergency: “Loony Bin- Commit on Sight.” This executive order is stated so broadly, that all your private medical information can now be available to the federal government for any reason.
You will see in the following executive orders, that Obama fully intends for your doctor to spy and report on you to the federal government. It doesn’t just end with your medical condition. It can be their ‘opinion’ of your risk of danger or if you answered, ‘yes’ to gun ownership. This can include your children answering ‘yes’ to gun ownership! Every pediatrician is now asking children if there are guns in the house and what kind they are.
There is no language to ensure that it remains a check for only when you are purchasing weapons! All the language, if you read carefully, simply says it is part of a ‘background check system’. But it doesn’t say ‘when’, ‘for whom’ or ‘why’ the checks will be done.
3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.
4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.
This is the crux of all 23 executive orders. All of them feed their collected data into this one. The title of this Executive Order is so misleading. It implies that it limits people only when making gun purchases but when you read the language of the Order, it is clear that it has nothing to do with that event. It is more concerned with ’emergencies’, not gun purchasing. Furthermore, note the language, ‘review categories’. That is misleading because it implies that the Attorney General already had categories of people he is only now reviewing. Not so. This Exec. Order gives him the power to create those categories. No Congressional oversight is necessary. Also note the language, ‘dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks’. What does that mean legally? Answer: Nothing and anything. Which is exactly why this Order is so dangerous.
The language in this part of the Executive Order allows the Attorney General and the President, two individuals without any Congressional oversight, to create ‘categories’ of U.S. citizens and their definitions, that can be attached to any U.S. citizen. It states that all the data collected from your doctor, your kids’ doctors, from state agencies, from all federal agencies, from social media and everything about you can be used to determine what ‘category’ you should be given. Depending on the category you are assigned, you can be treated differently under the law when you purchase weapons AND whenever there is an ’emergency’. This ’emergency’ state is completely vague in the language and has no formal definition in the bill. This means that it could be anything at any time. A president could just call an ’emergency’ and enact the powers defined in these 23 Executive Orders and begin to discriminate against people based on their secret ‘categories’. That means that U.S. citizens can be treated differently under the law as long as there is an ’emergency’, which could be anything. That is a clear violation of our Bill of Rights!
It allows a category to be assigned without a person’s knowledge. There is no language that allows a citizen to request which category they have been assigned or how to change or remove it. There is no language that requires the government to tell the U.S. citizens what these categories are or will be. There is no legal redress to change your category if you don’t like it.
Also, in subcategories of this order, provisions are made for the funding of , training and dissemination of handheld devices for all police enforcement that will contain the category information of local citizens. During any ’emergency’, these devices will contain people’s names, categories, photos, phone numbers, addresses, their kids’ names and photos, etc . They will use these devices to see who has which categories.
One category is already defined. It is called, “dangerous person”. Part of its definition is that when there is an ’emergency’ around schools, this person can’t go within a certain perimeter of that school. Police officers in that region will have handheld devices loaded with all the people in that area. Those with bad categories like, ‘dangerous person’ will be prioritized on their handheld devices that will have their photos, addresses, phone numbers, etc. These people can be denied access to the school and their children who might be there. They can be apprehended, detained, questioned etc. You can be prevented from picking up your children at their schools! No provision is given on how/when you can get them back.
Which category do you fit into? What kinds of categories will be created? How about: “Useless Eater”, ” Life Unworthy of Life”, “Impaired”, “Political Enemy”, “Trouble Maker”, “Fundamentalist Christian”, “Constitutionalist”, “Progressive” etc.? This allows the federal government to keep lists of people for quick action. Heaven forbid that you fall into the ‘dangerous people’ category.
I’ve mentioned several times that the wording doesn’t say that these new ‘background checks’ will only be used when a person is buying a gun. Indeed, in Executive Order #4, we see the proof that not only will the ‘background checks’ be done for everyone, but they must be done as soon as possible for any kind of emergency prevention described in #4 to even work! How can the police possibly catch any ‘dangerous person’ unless every citizen of that local city has first been analyzed in order to catch the ‘bad ones’ and the appropriate ‘categories’ already given? The assumption is that these things have already happened, right? In order for the police to instantly have the photos of all the ‘dangerous people’ in the area for ’emergencies’, the government has to have already analyzed all the people in that locale and determined whether or not they were a threat, right? So, by logic alone, we know that these ‘background checks’ aren’t the same background checks that used to be done for when people used to buy guns. These are a whole new animal. They are more of a ‘profile’ that will belong to every citizen that will be constantly updated based on your activities. Obviously, a person can be one category one day and become another on the next day based on new data. Thus, every citizen must have a ‘background check’ assessment profile at all times for this entire philosophy will fall down. The government has become Big Brother, big time.
Because there is complete secrecy about these categories (ie, no requirement for Congressional oversight and no reporting requirement is written in the text), no one can even complain about their existence in order to object. Most Americans don’t even know about these 23 Executive Orders, let alone want to protest them. No one has objected to this executive order or determined that it is against the Constitution thus far.
5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.
This means that if the government seizes your guns (which they can now do if they simply say you own guns for the purpose of dealing drugs- no proof required), they can run a background check on you before you get it back. OR if your gun was stolen and then used in a crime, they don’t have to return it to you. Remember that the ‘background check’ now includes all your medical records.
6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers
This ‘letter’ is actually a warning and a heads up to all gun dealers about how they will be prosecuted and shut down or even jailed if they fail to conduct the new ‘background checks’ on gun owners. Executive order number 9 below threatens action if guns sold by this dealer ever end up in a crime.
7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.
Oh. This is one easy (they get easier as you read more and more bills & politispeak). This translates to SCHOOL brainwashing techniques for our children in public schools. Expect to see Mishy on more Disney programs and infomercials touting the DREAD of guns and the ‘dangerous people’ who own them.
8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).
This will drive up the cost of guns so that only the government can afford them. Make it harder for people to even own gun dealerships- add as much red tape as possible. Only guns with ‘acceptable’ gun locks and stored in ‘acceptable’ gun safes can be purchased or owned. Perhaps this can be used to ‘recall’ all guns that do not meet these new criteria. People, especially ‘dangerous people’ who do not return their guns (all that LEGAL gun ownership is already available to the Feds. because they got it from the States.) will be subject to cops at their doors making a personal ‘request’ and perhaps even land you in jail- or with a huge fine.
9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.
This means that IF your legal weapon is stolen and used in a crime, they will come for YOU and the store that sold it to you.
10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.
This means that YOUR name, address, etc will be on a report widely circulated to cops everywhere and if your stolen gun turns up in a crime, they will come to YOUR house.
11. Nominate an ATF director.
I find it interesting that this is listed in an executive order. There is already a POSITION named ‘ATF Director’ . Todd is the ‘acting’ director. But why put this in an executive order? Why not just do what is normally done to fill a vacant position- ie, nominate him? Why an executive order to do what is already do-able? My thought: they will be adding a new job description, along with the old title. More power, that is. This provision was not added for no reason. This is the only reason possible. ‘ATF DIRECTOR’ now has a new definition. It will be created before the actual nomination.
12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.
I’m sure the ‘proper training’ will include making sure ‘dangerous people’ can’t come and get their kids in a time of emergency. I wonder, will civil unrest be considered a ‘time of emergency’ that will get those police & teachers to lock down our kids in case any of the ‘dangerous people’ in the protest come to ‘hurt’ them in a terrorist attack? What if ‘fundamentalist’ is a category and schools can be locked down if a group of Christian protesters don’t want to accept the Mark of the Beast? The language of these exec. orders completely allows this. Think about it.
13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.
Enforcement efforts to PREVENT gun violence? How does ENFORCEMENT prevent anything? How does taking police action before a crime has taken place make sense? This points the way to PROACTIVE police action IF they feel someone is about to commit ‘gun violence’. Imagine if you are a patriot who is about to engage in an open carry protest on Washington. I guess you might expect to see police at your door demanding your guns or hauling you to jail, huh? Because you MIGHT cause gun violence. What a great way to give the green light to knocking down our doors or removing our weapons BEFORE we mount an armed protest!
14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.
DISEASE CONTROL?? What the HECK does disease control have to do with gun purchases? I hate to even ask. Perhaps they will find ‘genetic’ or ‘mental illness’ or certain pharmacy ‘drugs’ to have connections to ‘gun violence’ and then add new categories of ‘dangerous people’ based on people’s medical records that say they have these ‘conditions’? ALSO, Disease Control will be asked for methods to PREVENT gun violence? Think about that. Does this mean they can ‘inoculate’ against gun violence? Will ‘dangerous people’ be forced to take injections to make them NOT dangerous?
15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.
16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.
This is asking progressive doctors to spy on you and make you believe you MUST answer questions about guns in your home (by the way- you don’t need to answer every question asked by your doctor!)
17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.
In other words, this tells doctors to REPORT you if you give them info. on gun ownership and they think you shouldn’t have one. Your doctor has now become your enemy.
18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.
This means that more police officers will be stationed at your schools. If you are categorized as a ‘dangerous person’ and an emergency happens, these police officers can prevent you from getting your kids, couldn’t they?
19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.
This means that once they have determined who the ‘dangerous people’ are in the neighborhood and once they have the police around the schools, they can create and keep an instantaneous list of who may not enter the school during emergencies. If you are on the ‘dangerous people’ list, don’t count on being able to get your kids in an emergency.
20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.
21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.
22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.
23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.
Considering that your doctor has just become a spy for the government, I can see why Obama wants Obamacare to include every possible mental health ‘screening’. All of that mental health information can now be used against you in a ‘background check’ for whatever reason. All of that information can be used to categorize you as a ‘dangerous person’. And being a ‘dangerous person’ can not only deprive you of your guns, but of access to your children when they are in school. Perhaps your children can even be taken from you if you are considered a ‘dangerous person’ based on gun ownership and your mental conditions to promote ‘gun violence’.
People, these executive orders are vague for a REASON. It is a complete tyranny we are looking at here. It is NOT about gun control. That is simply one goal among the larger goal of a coup d’état by the Progressives. BEWARE and prepare. Especially plan for your children.
