On Friday, July 6, President Barack Obama continued his quest to codify his own dictatorship with the issuing of a new executive order granting himself yet another expansive, unconstitutional power. The power afforded to the president in this latest executive order is so frighteningly expansive that it exceeds the scope of the authority acceded to the president in all his previous edicts.

Of course, the president assures citizens that such authority would be exercised only for the protection of national security.
“The Federal Government must have the ability to communicate at all times and under all circumstances to carry out its most critical and time sensitive missions,” the order reads. “Survivable, resilient, enduring and effective communications, both domestic and international, are essential to enable the executive branch to communicate within itself and with: the legislative and judicial branches; State, local, territorial and tribal governments; private sector entities; and the public, allies and other nations.”
