Obama Gives Himself the Power to Economically Assassinate Syrian Leaders

By Eric Blair | Activist Post | May 27, 2011

In April of this year President Barack Obama, claiming powers vested in him during an “International Economic Emergency” and “National Emergency” signed Executive Order 13572;  Blocking Property of Certain Persons With Respect to Human Rights Abuses in Syria. Essentially, it gives him the power to seize assets of Syrians suspected of being complicit in human rights abuses.

This incredibly vague standard gives the president the power to determine who ends up with the control of wealth in Syria. The EO describes the broad accusations that can be deemed sufficient enough by the State Department or Treasury Department to render asset seizures:

(i) to be responsible for or complicit in, or responsible for ordering, controlling, or otherwise directing, or to have participated in, the commission of human rights abuses in Syria, including those related to repression;

(ii) to be a senior official of an entity whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order;

(iii) to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services in support of, the activities described in subsection (b)(i) of this section or any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to Executive Order 13338, Executive Order 13460, or this order; or

(iv) to be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to Executive Order 13460 or this order.

If events leading up to Libya’s “liberation” are any indicator, this Executive Order is the first step in engaging in an interventionist “humanitarian war”.  In February of this year Obama signed an eerily similar Executive Order 13566Blocking Property and Prohibiting Certain Transactions Related to Libya.  Again, Obama declared the situation in Libya a “national emergency” in order to obtain the power to economically assassinate Qadhafi and anyone loyal to him:

I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, find that Colonel Muammar Qadhafi, his government, and close associates have taken extreme measures against the people of Libya, including by using weapons of war, mercenaries, and wanton violence against unarmed civilians. I further find that there is a serious risk that Libyan state assets will be misappropriated by Qadhafi, members of his government, members of his family, or his close associates if those assets are not protected. The foregoing circumstances, the prolonged attacks, and the increased numbers of Libyans seeking refuge in other countries from the attacks, have caused a deterioration in the security of Libya and pose a serious risk to its stability, thereby constituting an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.

This Executive Order was executed less than a month before the U.N. Security Council resolution for the so-called “No-Fly Zone” that has now festered into nightly bombings of Libya’s capital city and the actual targeted assassination of their sovereign leader.

This appears to be the modern imperial playbook for starting preemptive humanitarian wars for the purpose of regime change. Step one; seize the assets of the group currently running a country to weaken them. Step two; build strategic popular support for humanitarian intervention.  Step three; bomb the humanity back into the country and kill the rightful leader. Step four; install globalist puppets to control the flow of the country’s currency and assets. Step five; move on to the next “oppressive” regime, bypassing the mirror of conscience.

One thing is for certain, Syria is next on the globalist chopping block despite the West’s clear involvement in spearheading the opposition movement there.  The U.S. president can now conveniently claim the powers of international economic emergency and national emergency to circumvent any checks and balances to justify nearly any act of imperial tyranny.  And 2011 is shaping up to be a Blitzkrieg by Western powers to take out the remaining global chess pieces that oppose their domination.

  1. Libya is only an emergency Libyans under attack by US-led NATO, which now includes Israel.

    That emergency is to stop that US-led NATO aggression; by any means necessary for the national resistance fighting off a fascist coup d’ etat by the CIA and likely Mossad involvement as they have been in Africa internal affairs for decades.

    A State of National Emergency is unlawful, for it is deceitful name for gross violation of the constitution. The constitution can be amended, public law and agencies already exist for all contingencies including invasions insurrection here!

    The US Constitution can not be suspended by the president, congress, the court; individually or in unison! ~ American Law Library Report to House Committee on Constitutional Rights.

    These are power-grabs by a rogue regime that has impeached and proven itself guilty of High Crimes, War Crimes, Capitol Crimes, International Crimes; because they are criminals in a criminal conspiracy involving mass murder into the millions depending on the decade, it is worldwide continuously

    Syria in another target of Israel’s choice for their hit-list; demanding compliance or consequences, for compliance is complete!

    No wonder the ‘Iron Dome’ systems, it is cover for forward deployment to attack as in 1967.

    Syria has not been demanding the return of Goland Heights, that I have noticed, nor is it in the discussion of the ‘”Peace”‘ something or other!

    Nail Israel on 9/11 and put that into a historical review of events like the false flag attack on the USS Liberty to get the US to drop two hydrogen bombs on Egypt in 1967.

  2. we’re about to see another Israeli run ‘false flag’ attack on a U.S. aircraft carrier or escort ship, and the reason I say that, is that after carrying out the false flag attacks (Israel) against the U.S. in Sept. 2001, and getting away with it for ten whole years, the U.S. knows that the people are too thick skulled to do anything even when 75 or more percent finally accept the fact that the whole thing was ISRAEL with the U.S. in a secondary role that day, and has failed to do anything about it.

    So we’re due again. and of course, it’ll be blamed on IRAN, or SYRIA, or maybe LIBYA, but it’ll once again be orchestrated by the MOSSAD, and it’ll involve a U.S. navy vessel, attacked by Israeli’s and sunk, as the excuse ‘du jour’ to go into IRAN with tactical nuclear weapons.

    Not too long ago an Aegis cruiser left P.S.N.S., after sitting pierside for a long time, for unknown destination somewhere, and it wouldn’t surprise me if this inactive ship gets sunk and blamed on Iran. Just a thought, but clearly highly unusual for the ship to be moved briefly, have some work done on the masts or antenna’s, and then suddenly be gone. I hope I’m wrong, but it’s most likely going to be the next FALSE FLAG by Israel against the U.S., this time with a lot more coordination with the U.S. Navy, as we now know that Naval Research Labs provided the THERMITE that took down the towers of the WTC complexes on Sept. 11, 2001, and that Israel was not capable of forumlating that exact nano-mixture or matrix of THERMITE that the Naval Research Labs had been able to create.

    Strictly U.S. military THERMITE, as was the ANTHRAX from Ft. Detrick that Dr. Phillip Zack mailed to various recipients, such as Patrick Leahy. Aren’t you all glad your U.S. Navy is so accomodating when it comes to Israeli false flag attacks now, far cry from the day a U.S. admiral on the carrier that sent those ‘2’ A-4’s (ready aircraft) to nuke Cairo for Israel, but then refueled them and sent them back out to go take out Tel Aviv before Lyndon B. Johnson stopped him.

    Methinks Adm. Fallon to be the same kind of patriot that task group commander was in 1967, before Johnson fired him for wanting to get the real perpetrators who attacked GTR-5, the U.S.S. Liberty.

    now, the U.S. Navy aids and abets TREASON.
