The headline is misleading in that it's not a declaration of a national emergency as much as an extension of one already declared by Clinton in the year 2000, that has been running ever since.

Isn't the "national emergency" part procedural?

By which I mean the President doesn't have the authority to get this done without declaring it a national emergency?

There were concerns that payments due to the Russian Federation under these agreements may be subject to attachment, garnishment, or other judicial process, in the United States, which could put implementation of such agreements at risk.


It seems like they're worried that someone will try to use the courts to stop them paying the Russians, or that Congress will start fucking around with it by attaching conditions or refusing to pay etc. If that happened, there would be justifiable concern that the Russians would stop doing the work.

America has been in national emergency since 9/11 and can not afford another war or is that the bluff by rocketing the debt ceiling off to make the ones that want to destroy America think that they are weak .

Good job Seahawk and mucho thanks for staying with it.

I was knocked offline due to unavoidable crash of my internet at this end.

Though I wouldn't climb the "run-for-the-hills" fence just yet, I was just a little edgy with this story coming up and then losing my internet - gee - go figure.

Anyhoo, hope everyone is watching the airwaves for anything out of the ordinary.

It could be harmless, but then, nothing our government does is harmless.

LoL.

cheers and peace.

Here's the text of the letter covering the Executive Order in question....................


TEXT OF A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT TO THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE



June 25, 2012



Dear Mr. Speaker: (Dear Mr. President:)

Pursuant to section 204(b) of the International Emergency Economic
Powers Act (IEEPA), 50 U.S.C. 1703(b), I hereby report that I have
exercised my authority to declare a national emergency to deal with the
threat posed to the United States by the risk of nuclear proliferation
created by the accumulation in the Russian Federation of a large volume
of weapons-usable fissile material.

In Executive Order 13159 of June 21, 2000, the President found that
this same risk constituted an unusual and extraordinary threat to the
national security and foreign policy of the United States and declared a
national emergency to deal with that threat. The United States and the
Russian Federation had entered into a series of agreements that provide
for the conversion of highly enriched uranium (HEU) extracted from
Russian nuclear weapons into low enriched uranium (LEU) for use in
commercial nuclear reactors. There were concerns that payments due to
the Russian Federation under these agreements may be subject to
attachment, garnishment, or other judicial process, in the United
States, which could put implementation of such agreements at risk. In
Executive Order 13159, the President therefore ordered blocked all
property and interests in property of the Government of the Russian
Federation directly related to the implementation of the HEU Agreements
so that it would be protected from the threat of attachment,
garnishment, or other judicial process.

In the Executive Order I have issued today, I find that the risk of
nuclear proliferation created by the accumulation in the Russian
Federation of a large volume of weapons-usable fissile material
continues to constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the
national security and foreign policy of the United States. I therefore
declared a national emergency to address this threat and to continue the
blocking of all property and interests in property of the Government of
the Russian Federation directly related to the implementation of the
HEU Agreements.

A major national security goal of the United States is to ensure that
fissile material removed from Russian nuclear weapons pursuant to
various arms control and disarmament agreements is dedicated to peaceful
uses, subject to transparency measures, and protected from diversion to
activities of proliferation concern. The United States and the Russian
Federation entered into an international agreement in February 1993 to
deal with these issues as they relate to the disposition of HEU
extracted from Russian nuclear weapons (the "HEU Agreement"). The HEU
Agreement provides for 500 metric tons of HEU to be converted to LEU
over a 20-year period. This is the equivalent of 20,000 nuclear
warheads.

Additional agreements were put in place to effectuate the HEU
Agreement, including agreements and contracts on transparency, on the
appointment of executive agents to assist in implementing the
agreements, and on the disposition of LEU delivered to the United States
(collectively, the "HEU Agreements"). Under the HEU Agreements, the
Russian Federation extracts HEU metal from nuclear weapons. That HEU is
oxidized and blended down to LEU in the Russian Federation. The
resulting LEU is shipped to the United States for fabrication into fuel
for commercial reactors.

The HEU Agreements provide for the Russian Federation to receive money
and uranium hexafluoride in payment for each shipment of LEU converted
from the Russian nuclear weapons. The money and uranium hexafluoride
are transferred to the Russian Federation executive agent in the United
States.

The executive branch and the Congress have previously recognized and
continue to recognize the threat posed to the United States national
security from the risk of nuclear proliferation created by the
accumulation of weapons-usable fissile material in the Russian
Federation. This threat is the basis for significant programs aimed at
Cooperative Threat Reduction and at controlling excess fissile
material. The HEU Agreements are essential tools to accomplish these
overall national security goals. The Congress has repeatedly
demonstrated support for these agreements.

Payments made to the Russian Federation pursuant to the HEU Agreements
are integral to the operation of this key national security program.
Uncertainty surrounding litigation and the possible attachment,
garnishment, or other judicial process that could impede these payments
could lead to a long term suspension of the HEU Agreements, which
creates the risk of nuclear proliferation. This is an unacceptable
threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.

Accordingly, I have concluded that all property and interests in
property of the Government of the Russian Federation directly related to
the implementation of the HEU Agreements should remain protected from
the threat of attachment, garnishment, or other judicial process. I
have, therefore, exercised my authority and issued an Executive Order
that provides:

except to the extent provided in regulations, orders, directives, or
licenses that may be issued pursuant to the order, or that were issued
pursuant to Executive Order 13159 of June 21, 2000, all property and
interests in property of the Government of the Russian Federation
directly related to the implementation of the HEU Agreements that are in
the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or
hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States
persons, including any foreign branch, are blocked and may not be
transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in;

unless licensed or authorized pursuant to the order, any attachment,
judgment, decree, lien, execution, garnishment, or other judicial
process is null and void with respect to any property or interest in
property blocked pursuant to the order; and

that all heads of departments and agencies of the United States
Government shall continue to take all appropriate measures within their
authority to further the full implementation of the HEU Agreements.

The effect of this Executive Order is limited to property that is
directly related to the implementation of the HEU Agreements. Such
property will be clearly defined by the regulations, orders, directives,
or licenses that will be issued pursuant to this Executive Order. I
have delegated to the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with
the Secretary of State, the authority to take such actions, including
the promulgation of rules and regulations, and to employ all powers
granted to the President by IEEPA as may be necessary to carry out the
purposes of the order. All agencies of the United States Government are
directed to take all appropriate measures within their authority to
carry out the provisions of the order.

I am enclosing a copy of the Executive Order I have issued.

Sincerely,

BARACK OBAMA
