By increasing the power of the President, usually used during wartime and now available with discretion in peacetime, this allows the President to control and/or allocate every resource our country has , in this way:
“(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.
(e) “Food resources” means all commodities and products, (simple, mixed, or compound), or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption. “Food resources” also means potable water packaged in commercially marketable containers, all starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, seed, cotton, hemp, and flax fiber, but does not mean any such material after it loses its identity as an agricultural commodity or agricultural product.”
Our country has suffered greatly in the past few years. Resources are not what they once were, and as we all know…there is NO money anywhere to use for anything. We are so in debt, spending all of our resources in paying interest on loans. Hints coming from Israel suggest a strike against Iran and this new Executive Order may suggest an interest in an ongoing war in the Middle East. I am in favor of helping Israel out if the need arose, but this President would most certainly take resources away from the American public to help out in a war against Iran, and we couldn’t be sure which side we would be fighting on! This is extreme and doesn’t bode well for the people of America.
