In January of this year, Bush signed Executive Order # 13456 allowing, permitting and encouraging the so-called [investment] in America by foreign agents, individuals and corporations.  Apparently trying to make sure he finished his father’s efforts to sell off the taxpayer funded and owned infrastructure to private interests, including foreigners, this EO makes clear the intent to divest America of all assets previously funded and paid for by US taxpayers, and the intention to offshore even more of our jobs and businesses to foreign investors. 

 

We are currently an estimated 10 to 70 TRILLION in debt as a nation.  As a country, we own less than 38% of all lands, and less than 42% of what were national assets. 

 

I have no doubt this EO was written with full knowledge of the planned collapse of our economy.  When reading through it, note the extensive powers already delegated to the Treasury Secretary…..many of which were promoted as new powers under the bailout package.

Executive Order 13456—Further

Amendment of Executive Order 11858

Concerning Foreign Investment in the

United States

 

 

 

Section 1. Amendment to Executive Order 11858. Executive Order 11858

of May 7, 1975, as amended, is further amended to read as follows:

 

‘‘FOREIGN INVESTMENT IN THE UNITED STATES

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the

laws of the United States of America, including section 721 of the Defense

Production Act of 1950, as amended (50 U.S.C. App. 2170), and section

301 of title 3, United States Code, it is hereby ordered as follows:

 

Section 1. Policy. International investment in the United States promotes economic growth, productivity, competitiveness, and job creation. It is the policy of the United States to support unequivocally such investment, consistent with the protection of the national security. (end excerpt)

 

Note:  In what is nothing less than a paragraph containing outright lies, we know that investment in the United States actually means the buying up of home mortgages, public lands, bridges, roads and other infrastructure. 

 

International investment kills jobs and does not create anything but devastation.  Competitiveness is not even a consideration as international investment is a tool for eradicating competitiveness.  Productivity is a term used to disguise the slave labor wages and work conditions of poorer countries where the businesses are relocated.  Paying non-livable wages to people who are unbelievably poor but who are forced to take the only work that may be available allows the investors to reap profits by sheer volume.  That’s not an increase in actual productivity, only an increase of people forced into slavery.

 

Reading through this entire EO, we find that [national security] is exposed for the fraud that it is. 

 

(2nd excerpt)……………….

 

(a) The functions of the President under subsections (b)(1)(A) (relating to review and consideration after notification),

 

(b)(1)(D) (relating to unilateral initiation of review and consideration), and

(m)(3)(A) (relating to inclusion in annual report and designation) of the Act are assigned to the Secretary of the Treasury.

 

(b) The Secretary of the Treasury shall perform the function of issuance of regulations under section 721(h) of the Act. The Secretary shall consult the Committee with respect to such regulations prior to any notice and comment and prior to their issuance. (end 2nd excerpt)

 

Note:

In this section, in preparation for the planned economic collapse, Paulson is given extraordinary powers as S.O.T.    Preparing the way for the wholesale divesting of American assets, Paulson is given the power to begin the selling off of infrastructure, financial and otherwise.  This will be accomplished by allowing his office to establish the rules and regulations under which this selling off will occur once the planned economic collapse takes place. 

 

Having gotten ten months head start, and knowing what was ahead, allowed Paulson to begin negotiations far in advance. 

 

Also note, every effort is made to avoid congress, or congressional approval.  The president claims [unilateral] authority to review and consider these sales of assets. 

 

We must work to end all Executive Orders!  And to expunge all those from the past which are known to be unconstitutional.
