Executive Branch

As it relates to the checks and balances of our American government, the Executive Branch is responsible for the daily administration of the state bureaucracy. The head of the Executive Branch is the President of the United States. Underneath the President are the several Departments that have been created by Executive Order. The Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Justice are just a few examples of these subgroups within the Executive Branch. The representative leaders of these departments are collectively known as the President’s “Cabinet” of advisors.

Since the Executive Branch of our government is in charge of administrating the affairs of the nation, it is important to keep them in our prayers. The Executive Branch directs the general political flow of the federal government.

Featured Member of the Executive Branch for Prayer

Gregory J. Touhill, U.S. Cyber Security Chief

Gregory Touhill entered active duty in the U.S. Air Force through the Reserve Officer Training Corps program at Pennsylvania State University, from which he received a B.A. in Political Science. He later earned a Master’s degree in systems management from the University of Southern California at Los Angeles. He received considerable additional education as part of his Air Force assignments.

He held numerous staff positions at major commands and Air Staff levels, and has commanded at squadron, group and wing levels. He has been deployed in Southeast Asia, and at the U.S. Embassy in Kuwait. Before leaving the Air Force, Touhill was the Director, Command, Control Communications and Cyber Systems, where he also served as the Command’s chief information officer.

After retirement, Touhill has been serving as deputy assistant secretary for cyber security and communications at the Department of Homeland Security. He will begin his new role in late September.

IN THE NEWS

The Administration of President Barack Obama has made bolstering federal cyber security a top priority in his last year in office. The issue has gained more attention because of high-profile breaches in current years of government and private sector computers.

President Obama announced the new cyber security chief job back in February alongside a budget proposal to Congress for $19 billion for cyber security across the U.S. government. The job is a political appointment, meaning Obama’s successor can choose to replace Gregory Touhill after being sworn in next January.

Executive Branch Prayer Needs

President Obama has until Friday to veto a bill making it easier for families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia. The EU is encouraging his veto. An override vote is expected next week.

Making his case at the UN against nationalistic and anti-immigration movements, President Obama said, “a nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself.”

Pray for President Obama and his desire to see his legacy completed before his term ends.
