Government will use anti-hoarding laws to take your food, water and supplies

(Bugout.news) On April 5, 1933, with a desperate nation in the throes of the Great Depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 6102, “forbidding the Hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States.” The effect of the order, in conjunction with the statute under which it was issued, was to criminalize the possession of monetary gold by any individual, partnership, association or corporation, and at a time when Americans were desperate to regain lost wealth.

The order was issued to allow the Federal Reserve to bypass restrictions contained in the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, regarding the amount of gold reserves it had to retain in relation to the amount of Federal Reserve notes (dollars) it was creating.

Fast forward to 1994. Then-President Bill Clinton issued an executive order that combined a number of laws that would take effect in the event martial law was declared. One of the laws including in his order, EO 10998, permits the federal government to seize hoarded food supplies from both public and private holders.

“Some people may feel the federal government does not have the right to confiscate stored food in the event of a national emergency where access to food is limited,” notes eHow.com. “They believe the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution — which prohibits unreasonable search and seizure — protects their privacy and should be upheld to protect their food supplies even if other people do not have access to food in a disaster.”

Only, that’s not going to be the case, as any declaration of martial law would essentially nullify any constitutional protections and civil rights that inhibit the government from self-preservation and preservation of the civil society.

In fact, the government’s hand – not yours – was strengthened even further in March 2012, when President Barack Obama signed the National Defense Resources Preparedness executive order, which “grants the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Labor, the Department of Defense and other agencies complete control of all U.S. resources, including the ability to seize, confiscate or re-delegate resources, materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense as delegated by the following agencies,” SHTFPlan.com reported.

Included in the order is all farming equipment; all forms of energy and energy production; “food resources,” which means all food commodities; all water resources; and so forth.

What’s more, under the order all Americans are automatically registered with the government according to their skill level, so – like the military draft – they can be forced to perform jobs and services the government deems vital to the nation’s functioning [as part of a National Defense Executive Reserve].

And by the way, it won’t just be your food and water the government will take; if you’ve stored fuels, weapons, medicines and other supplies, Uncle Sam will help himself to those items, too, leaving you nothing but dependent (and vulnerable).

We bring you this information not to make you angry, but to make you think – about who you tell of your preparedness plans and what items you’re stockpiling; about where you may consider moving your stash to avoid detection; about finding additional ways to feed yourself in times of trouble. A food-and-water stash won’t do you any good if it’s confiscated “for the greater betterment of the country,” so you ought to take the time now to consider ways to protect what you’ve built or what you’re building.

    Never take photographs of your preparedness and never add them to the Internet. If you have any pictures on a computer with wireless, Intel/AMD processors then remove them immediately whilst also making sure metadata is removed from those pictures. Never connect to a preparedness website or article with your IP address, instead use the TOR or I2P networks and never a VPN. Why not a VPN? Well somewhere your details are logged against that VPN! Do not leave a trace of anything for these cretins to police state you later on. Make sure you never put your gold/silver stash on Youtube. Why do you think these services now like to have your cellphone service connected as two-factor authentication? Now they instantly know your location rather than needing to deal with ISPs which is slow and time consuming. We’re dealing with pure pond scum when it comes to the Governments of the west and if you want to realize how bad it’s become then watch the murder of Finicum as a perfect example of tyranny.
