Obama Just Gave Himself the Power to Seize Your Assets Without a Warrant 5.00/5 (100.00%) 1 vote


President Obama has signed another Executive Order, but this one could affect you directly.  On Monday, Obama signed an Executive Order (EO) that will allow him to seize assets of any company or individual, he decides is aiding Russia in the Ukraine.  No courts, no warrant, no 4th Amendment.  The order is written broadly enough that it could be used against any enemy of the government (Not of the people but of the government) and therefore would allow him to seize assets at will to any real or perceived enemy of his administration.  Can you say, “IRS”?

This will be brought up several times, and you can bet Obama’s surrogates will assure us that Obama has no intention of doing any such thing.  Trust Obama.  That’s like Custer saying, “I don’t think the Indians will be any trouble today.  After all, they were great at the dance last night.”  And of course, his final words, “WTF!!!???”

The current EO is aimed at the Ukraine.  But once you use an executive order to bypass the Fourth Amendment, and allow seizure of property without due process, what is to stop you from writing another EO, calling for the seizure of assets for everyone who aids Breitbart or Hobby Lobby or even Fox News?


The main points of the current EO are as follows:

All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person (including any foreign branch) of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in: any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State:

(i) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have engaged in, directly or indirectly, any of the following:

(A) actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine;

(B) actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine; or

(C) misappropriation of state assets of Ukraine or of an economically significant entity in Ukraine

Under an order such as this one, you could have your property seized for making political commentary favoring Russia.

Obama has recently reauthorized the EO which allows him to seize energy suppliers, food supplies or almost anything else he wants during a state of emergency.  And he gets to decide what an emergency is.
