What is up with the New Executive order issued yesterday by Obama? Why now?Why on a Friday?
UPDATE: Just in case you think we are not in a “State of Emergency”:
Obama signed a “Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to Iran” on March 13, just three days before the following E.O.
Update from Gulag Bound just in case you think this is the same old, same old.
Obama has added to Section 201(b) the phrase “under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.” In 12919, though, the duties of the Cabinet Secretaries were not limited to emergency situations in Section 201(b), either. And in both EOs, section 102 specifically notes that the EO is intended to ensure defense preparedness “in peacetime and in times of national emergency.”
So, is this a signal that Obama could use his powers during a ‘non-emergency?’ I would certainly not put it past him.
