Once again the wingnuts on the far right are screaming about another Executive Order of Obama, which once again is nothing more then a modernization of executive orders by previous presidents.
In this case, the Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions.
Which is explained in the first section as: The Federal Government must have the ability to communicate at all times and under all circumstances to carry out its most critical and time sensitive missions. Survivable, resilient, enduring, and effective communications, both domestic and international, are essential to enable the executive branch to communicate within itself and with: the legislative and judicial branches; State, local, territorial, and tribal governments; private sector entities; and the public, allies, and other nations. Such communications must be possible under all circumstances to ensure national security, effectively manage emergencies, and improve national resilience. The views of all levels of government, the private and nonprofit sectors, and the public must inform the development of national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) communications policies, programs, and capabilities.
Whish is in fact nothing more then a modernization of the executive order, number 12472, bearing the same name, issued by Ronald Reagan in 1984. I guess some people fail to realize that communications have changed somewhat in 30 years?
It is also updating Reagans EO 12382, which originally founded the Presidents National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee.
But of course, like so many of Obamas Executive Orders, bringing decades old EO’s of other presidents in the modern century, there must be something sinister here. After all- he IS a black man, a muslim, a marxist/socialist/communist foreign born anti-christ (or so these same people tell us… )
