Obama to issue executive order to allow Treasury to freeze US-based assets for free speech on Yemen

any person who "obstructs" in any form the implementation of the new Yemeni government..

This is almost unbelievable.

That would mean that any editorials criticizing the former vice president taking office, the single candidate election, etc., could have any assets "based" in the US frozen. That would mean any speeches, editorials, published articles, blogs criticizing the whole sham "transition" would be subject to having assets frozen.

What is the president* doing? Who really does control his actions? This is, to me, surely not the kind of thing a Democratic incumbent does to win voters' confidence and enthusiasm? But it may win the Saudis' continued support....

Oh, my. Heckuvajob, Barry.

(*What is Hillary doing supporting this?)
