July 19, 2007Bush Outlaws All War Protest In United States

In one of his most chilling moves to date against his own citizens, the American War Leader has issued a sweeping order this week outlawing all forms of protest against the Iraq war. 

President Bush enacted into US law an ‘Executive Order’ on July 17th titled “Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq”, http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2007/07/20070717-3.html and which says: 

”By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, as amended (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.)(IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.)(NEA), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, 

I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, find that, due to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States posed by acts of violence threatening the peace and stability of Iraq and undermining efforts to promote economic reconstruction and political reform in Iraq and to provide humanitarian assistance to the Iraqi people, it is in the interests of the United States to take additional steps with respect to the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13303 of May 22, 2003, and expanded in Executive Order 13315 of August 28, 2003, and relied upon for additional steps taken in Executive Order 13350 of July 29, 2004, and Executive Order 13364 of November 29, 2004.” 


  1. I have read this three times and do not understand what you are trying to say. The first sentence does not appear to be supported by everything that follows. It seems to me to cover activities in Iraq. What am I missing?

  2. If you read this as pertaining to activities in Iraq as opposed to here in the US then that is even worse. What gives Him the right to impose any "Executive Order's" over Iraq? We are supposedly there to help the Iraqis, not to impose our Executive on them.

    But I do not read it as pertaining to protests happening in Iraq, I read it as pertaining to protests happening here opposing what is happening in Iraq. And I restate, that is Unconstitutional. I have a constitutional right to disagree with my President and I have a Constitutional right to say that without any fear of anything.

  3. Sorry, but I'm not getting it either. The actual order as copied here just seems to be a bunch a doublespeak and doesn't really do anything. It says take additional steps, but doesn't define those steps. It references previous orders, and as I am unfamiliar with those orders - cretin that I am - it means nothing.

    I don't like Bush and I don't like the direction he has taken our country, but this seems to be purely inflammatory.

  4. Jon Stewart hasn't done a single joke about Iraq, since you posted this--very spooky.

  7. I have read it one more time and find in the first paragraph an order to block property of persons that harms the US effort in Iraq. While I can not make out anything definative in the remainder, I believe this refers to the money that is used to oppose US efforts in Iraq. That money is used to give support to radical Islam and this president wants to stop that. Does this make more sense?
