The Examiner reports Obama has signed an executive order giving Janey Napolitanoâ€™s Gropers a far larger role in State and local affairs. A new bureaucracy, the â€śSecurity Partnership Council,â€ť is to be created to effect this power grab.
Briefly quoting the Examiner item linked above:
Economically, the Establishing the White House Homeland Security Partnership Council Executive Order will increase funding and resources to state and local governments to fulfill Homeland Security programs and doctrines, as well as increase Federal oversight in the implementation of directives tied to the agencies mission.
Past Obama decrees have increased the size and power of the Federal bureaucracy, and this appears no different. In many of this decreeâ€™s aspects it could have been copied from Italian decrees of the 1923 to 1930 time period, when that unfortunate regime was solidifying power and giving control of every department of government to Il Duce.
Here is an excerpt from the complete text of Obamaâ€™s decree:
Section 1. Policy. The purpose of this order is to maximize the Federal Governmentâ€™s ability to develop local partnerships in the United States to support homeland security priorities. Partnerships are collaborative working relationships in which the goals, structure, and roles and responsibilities of the relationships are mutually determined. Collaboration enables the Federal Government and its partners to use resources more efficiently, build on one anotherâ€™s expertise, drive innovation, engage in collective action, broaden investments to achieve shared goals, and improve performance. Partnerships enhance our ability to address homeland security priorities, from responding to natural disasters to preventing terrorism, by utilizing diverse perspectives, skills, tools, and resources.
The National Security Strategy emphasizes the importance of partnerships, underscoring that to keep our Nation safe â€śwe must tap the ingenuity outside government through strategic partnerships with the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, foundations, and community-based organizations. Such partnerships are critical to U.S. success at home and abroad, and we will support them through enhanced opportunities for engagement, coordination, transparency, and information sharing.â€ť This approach recognizes that, given the complexities and range of challenges, we must institutionalize an all-of-Nation effort to address the evolving threats to the United States.
Sec. 2. White House Homeland Security Partnership Council and Steering Committee.
(a) White House Homeland Security Partnership Council. There is established a White House Homeland Security Partnership Council (Council) to foster local partnerships â€” between the Federal Government and the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, foundations, community-based organizations, and State, local, tribal, and territorial government and law enforcement â€” to address homeland security challenges. The Council shall be chaired by the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism (Chair), or a designee from the National Security Staff.
In this context, â€śhomeland security challengesâ€ť should be read as â€śfacilitating the centralization of the government.â€ť Of course, among those challenges to centralization is the continued possession of firearms by the people. As another Socialist Leader said:
â€śWe do not allow the people to think, why should we allow them guns?â€ť
Joseph Stalin, 1929
