By clicking on the below listed link of a press release from the White House Press Office, you will be able to read the Presidential Executive Order that was released late on Friday evening. This new Presidential Executive Order is different in context and definition from similar Presidential Executive Orders issued by previous residents of the White House. It includes an overly broad definition of National Defense, and for the first time in the General Provisions section of the order, Part VIII, Section 801 (j), it allows for emergency preparedness activities conducted pursuant to title VI of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5195 which permits the President to declare Martial Law when the country is not in times of war. The Republic can still be safeguarded by Congressional action if the Congress is able to come together to act, and if the media establishment will do its duty to alert the American people in advance of the enactment of Section 801 (j).
"There is no nation on earth powerful enough to accomplish our (the United States) overthrow. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing." - Daniel Webster, June 1, 1837
