Executive Order — Establishing the White House Homeland Security Partnership Council
(A.K.A. Vulture-Capitalism at it’s finest)
- – – – – – -
ESTABLISHING THE WHITE HOUSE
HOMELAND SECURITY PARTNERSHIP COUNCIL
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to advance the Federal Government’s use of local partnerships to address homeland security challenges, it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. Policy. The purpose of this order is to maximize the Federal Government’s ability to develop local partnerships in the United States to support homeland security priorities. Partnerships are collaborative working relationships in which the goals, structure, and roles and responsibilities of the relationships are mutually determined. Collaboration enables the Federal Government and its partners to use resources more efficiently, build on one another’s expertise, drive innovation, engage in collective action, broaden investments to achieve shared goals, and improve performance. Partnerships enhance our ability to address homeland security priorities, from responding to natural disasters to preventing terrorism, by utilizing diverse perspectives, skills, tools, and resources.
The National Security Strategy emphasizes the importance of partnerships, underscoring that to keep our Nation safe “we must tap the ingenuity outside government through strategic partnerships with the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, foundations, and community-based organizations. Such partnerships are critical to U.S. success at home and abroad, and we will support them through enhanced opportunities for engagement, coordination, transparency, and information sharing.” This approach recognizes that, given the complexities and range of challenges, we must institutionalize an all-of-Nation effort to address the evolving threats to the United States.
k): No mention is made concerning the Congress or the people of this country, nor are the exalted purposes of this self-proclaimed edict ever mentioned. The public has made no demand of the government for more “local private-partnerships” to do anything which the federal, state and local governments have already and so consistently FAILED so massively to even address; much less achieve…
Whatever “success” is hypothetically being sought here obviously has nothing to do with the survival of the public, regardless of the supposed-point in anything undertaken by this “government” to improve anything which has already become part of the lives of any American’s in today’s world.
As for the public-safety – That has NEVER been a priority since the Department of HOMELAND-SECURITY was created!
Section 2. White House Homeland Security Partnership Council and Steering Committee.
(a) White House Homeland Security Partnership Council. There is established a White House Homeland Security Partnership Council (Council) to foster local partnerships — between the Federal Government and the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, foundations, community-based organizations, and State, local, tribal, and territorial government and law enforcement — to address homeland security challenges. The Council shall be chaired by the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism (Chair), or a designee from the National Security Staff.
(b) Council Membership
(i) Pursuant to the nomination process established in subsection (b)(ii) of this section, the Council shall be composed of Federal officials who are from field offices of the executive departments, agencies, and bureaus (agencies) that are members of the Steering Committee established in subsection (c) of this section, and who have demonstrated an ability to develop, sustain, and institutionalize local partnerships to address policy priorities.
(ii) The nomination process and selection criteria for members of the Council shall be established by the Steering Committee. Based on those criteria, agency heads may select and present to the Steering Committee their nominee or nominees to represent them on the Council. The Steering Committee shall consider all of the nominees and decide by consensus which of the nominees shall participate on the Council. Each member agency on the Steering Committee, with the exception of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, may have at least one representative on the Council.
(c) Steering Committee. There is also established a Steering Committee, chaired by the Chair of the Council, to provide guidance to the Council and perform other functions as set forth in this order.

At the invitation of the Chair, representatives of agencies not listed in subsection (c) of this section or other executive branch entities may attend and participate in Steering Committee meetings as appropriate…”
Once upon a time there was a congress here that had the job of legislating the business of the people and the activities of the legislative and executive branches of the government in order to formulate and provide for the population. Whatever was needed, by the citizens, especially in times of crises would be provided: However it’s clear from this privately-written dictate from the TARNISHED HOUSE—that the CONGRESS is no longer here:
Therefore CONGRESS should no longer exist!
There is a lot more of this drivel from the TRAITOR in the Tarnished House. The entire document is listed in footnote-one below.
Incidentally this gift to the American People was released to the public during the peak of Superstorm Sandy’s romp through the Northeastern US, while SANDY was devastating the same public this document was meant to destroy by governmental fiat of which this is a prime example.
Had any of this bullshit mattered, then the carnage left behind from both Sandy, and the Nor-Easter that followed in her wake, would not still be growing as it is today. Millions of people devastated, hundreds if not thousands dead, thousands more driven from their homes – not by the storms but by FEMA, DHS, the states and the FEDS and all of it was supposedly done to protect people from the aftermath, while failing to provide, power, fuel, food, water or safety to any of the survivors of either storm.
