The email claims that Obama has issued executive orders but lists orders that previous presidents signed. The email also inaccurately describes those orders. Another viral email cuts and pastes a constituent newsletter from Republican Rep.
Kay Granger of Texas. She falsely claimed that an Obama executive order created martial law. Granger has since retracted her statements and removed the newsletter from her website.
Executive orders originated under George Washington, and their use stems from interpretations of Article II of the Constitution — which created the executive branch — and from presidential precedent.
Obama has not issued executive orders. He has signed slightly fewer orders than President George W. Obama has issued executive orders as of Sept.
The U. Bush issued executive orders through Sept. The viral email that claims Obama has signed executive orders lists 13 orders as evidence, all of which previous presidents signed in the s and s. Presidents number their executive orders consecutively. The first executive order that President Obama signed was EO , which dealt with presidential records.
The order reestablished a council to oversee safety of civilian federal employees. Granger, the Texas congresswoman, made false claims about an executive order that Obama actually signed in March. The act expires in Like presidents before him, Obama issued an order updating the resources covered under that act, which allows presidents to delegate authority to various federal departments and agencies. It has no effect at all on continued powers of Congress or the federal courts during periods of war or other national emergencies.
There are only a few changes President Obama incorporated — such as changes to the definitions of resources covered by the law — that have been included in his order. The appointments were unprecedented because he made them when the Senate was technically not in recess, prompting legal challenges from conservative groups.
Obama did not submit the policy change to Congress for review, which the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office concluded he should have done. George W. Norman J.

Despite claims that the executive order provided the President with unprecedented new powers such as declaring martial law, seizing private property, implementing the rationing of food, gasoline, and drugs, restarting peacetime conscription, and nationalizing America industry, merely by declaring a national emergency, the National Defense Resources Preparedness EO issued by President Obama was simply a minor updating of a similar order issued by President Bill Clinton in which itself had decades-old predecessors and amended several times since. A comparison of this Executive Order with its predecessors posted at Hot Air observed that: Note what this EO specifically orders: identify, assess, be prepared, improve, foster cooperation. None of these items claim authority to seize private property and place them at the personal disposal of Obama. What follows after Section are the directives for implementing these rather analytical tasks, mostly in the form of explicit delegations of presidential authority to Cabinet members and others in the executive branch. Why the update?
Executive Order 13603
Executive Order of April 27, Establishing Principles of Excellence for Educational Institutions Serving Service Members, Veterans, Spouses, and Other Family Members By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to ensure that Federal military and veterans educational benefits programs are providing service members, veterans, spouses, and other family members with the information, support, and protections they deserve, it is hereby ordered as follows: Section 1. We owe the same obligations to this generation of service men and women as was afforded that previous one. For example, some institutions have recruited veterans with serious brain injuries and emotional vulnerabilities without providing academic support and counseling; encouraged service members and veterans to take out costly institutional loans rather than encouraging them to apply for Federal student loans first; engaged in misleading recruiting practices on military installations; and failed to disclose meaningful information that allows potential students to determine whether the institution has a good record of graduating service members, veterans, and their families and positioning them for success in the workforce. To ensure our service members, veterans, spouses, and other family members have the information they need to make informed decisions concerning their well-earned Federal military and veterans educational benefits, I am directing my Administration to develop Principles of Excellence to strengthen oversight, enforcement, and accountability within these benefits programs. The Principles should ensure that these educational institutions provide meaningful information to service members, veterans, spouses, and other family members about the financial cost and quality of educational institutions to assist those prospective students in making choices about how to use their Federal educational benefits; prevent abusive and deceptive recruiting practices that target the recipients of Federal military and veterans educational benefits; and ensure that educational institutions provide high-quality academic and student support services to active-duty service members, reservists, members of the National Guard, veterans, and military families. Implementation of the Principles of Excellence. To the extent practicable, the student outcome measures should rely on existing administrative data to minimize the reporting burden on institutions participating in these benefit programs.
