Subject: Friday Night E.O.'s 
 
As usual, the Barack Hussein Gang releases E.O.'s on Friday nights. Here's the latest from 3.15.13. I looked up E.O. 12777 Sec. 4 to show what they are striking in its entirety. [shown at bottom] You will notice in Barack's E.O. that he delegates power to the Secretary of the dept. in which the Coast Guard is operating [now under DHS] that being Sec. Napalitano. Also that they act in consultation the Administrator, Sec. of Transportation, Sec. of Interior, & "Eric Holder". This smells bad. - Jim
