The Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communication Functions executive order essentially gives President Barack Obama the power to control private communications when deemed a matter of national security. The Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communication Functions executive order is 2,205 words long, and those of us who respect and cherish the Constitution need to read every single syllable very carefully.
The Secretary of Commerce is even thrown into the alphabet soup of federal agency representatives which will have the power to dictate communications. An Emergency Alert System already exists and the White House is networked into the system to allow a president to quickly address the entire country via television and radio stations. The banana republic administration now has complete control over the internet, communications and commerce. There is no logical reason to give the president the power to reach deeply into private sector communications networks.

To ensure that the president will have the capability to reach every American household, he is reportedly putting together a plan to create a committee of experts and agents from within the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) the Department of Homeland Security, the Pentagon, and a handful of other federal departments.
The communications infrastructure noted by President Obama in the executive order include satellite, wireless, wired, cable, and broadcasting, and those that provide the transport networks that support the Internet and other key information systems. As previously reported by Off The Grid News, an IOActive review of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) revealed just how vulnerable the network is to cyber hackers. Such communications must be possible under all circumstances to ensure national security, effectively manage emergencies, and improve national resilience. When detailing the reach of the Assignment of National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communication Functions executive order, President Obama stated that the necessary technical support for the mandate will be overseen by the new committee. Unless you own a HAM radio, our means of communication effectively and quickly have now been completely eliminated.

That same group of government staffers dispatches alerts to governmental entities via privately owned communication services.
Policy coordination, guidance, dispute resolution, and periodic in-progress reviews for the functions described and assigned herein shall be provided through the interagency process established in Presidential Policy Directive-1 of February 13, 2009 (Organization of the National Security Council System) (PPD-1). Some have read between the lines and pondered if the new order means the president could shut down specific private communication systems in order to maintain the connectivity level desired for governmental purposes.
The Executive Committee shall be composed of Assistant Secretary-level or equivalent representatives designated by the heads of the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, Commerce, and Homeland Security, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), the General Services Administration, and the Federal Communications Commission, as well as such additional agencies as the Executive Committee may designate.
