Take some time and research each of these...very interesting stuff (info taken from this site: http://www.cassiopaea.org/cass/exec_tyranny.htm
however, all of the orders are easily accessed through Yahoo/Google search):

EXECUTIVE ORDER 12148 created the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that is to interface with the Department of Defense for civil defense planning and funding. An "emergency czar" was appointed. FEMA has only spent about 6 percent of its budget on national emergencies, the bulk of their funding has been used for the construction of secret underground facilities to assure continuity of government in case of a major emergency, foreign or domestic.(Jimmy Carter July 20, 1979)

EXECUTIVE ORDER 12656 appointed the National Security Council as the principal body that should consider emergency powers.

The National Guard could be federalized to seal all borders and take control of U.S. air space and all ports of entry. Many of the figures in the Iran-Contra scandal were part of this emergency contingent, including Marine Colonel Oliver North. [2] (Ronald Reagan Nov 18, 1988)

You would be doing all of us a favor if you edited your post to show who had signed each of these orders.

Thx in advance. :)

Marvin,

I added the Presidents and the dates as requested. Most of the info was obtained from this web site:

By the way, I was not suggesting anything unusual with this post...just found the content of the orders very interesting and thought others may as well.
