    This is not a hoax.

    In March, the President gave himself the power to nationalize any industry and confiscate any and all private property, all food, water, gas, raw materials, anything and everything, and best of all, there is no definite trigger, he can just declare he needs to do it.

    I don't see anywhere in the document where he consults with Congress. He can order people to work for the executive departments as he sees fit.

    "PART II—PRIORITIES AND ALLOCATIONS
    Sec. 201. Priorities and Allocations Authorities. (a) The authority of the
    President conferred by section 101 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2071, to
    require acceptance and priority performance of contracts or orders (other
    than contracts of employment) to promote the national defense over performance of any other contracts or orders, and to allocate materials, services,
    and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national
    defense, is delegated to the following agency heads:(1) the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health
    resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial
    fertilizer;
    (2) the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;
    (3) the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health
    resources;
    (4) the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;
    (5) the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and
    (6) the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services,
    and facilities, including construction materials."

    I read about this when it he first signed it. It's completely legit, in regard to the KING signing it. The good news is, President Romney said he will rescind every single EO Obama signed and put in to place the moment he is sworn in! :)

    Yeah I remember this from last year, turns out that it is a long standing order dating back to before WWII and re-signed by every president since, take a deep breath and change your shorts.

    -- 50 USC App, DEFENSE PRODUCTION ACT OF 1950: ACT SEPT. 8, 1950, CH. 932, 64 STAT. 798

    It is an Act that basically says, in times of catastrophe or terrorism, the Government grants the authority to the Executive to use (essentially) eminent domain to allocate the products and services of American industry under certain specific circumstances, and the Executive is called upon to draft rules and regs to put the legislation into effect.

    It can be argued that the Executive Order [ http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-03-22/pdf/2012-7019.pdf ] goes too far. Or maybe it doesn't.

    But I don't see it as a power grab.
