Darren Weeks- Hurricane Sandy, Martial Law and FEMA Camps: Rehearsal for Future America?
During the 1980s Iran Contra hearings, Lt. Col. Oliver North was questioned by Congressman Jack Brooks concerning North’s role in the development of a continuity-of-government plan called “Rex 84” (“Readiness Exercise 1984”), under which the U.S. Constitution would be suspended, and people moved into FEMA camps in the event of a major disaster.
Upon being questioned, the look of absolute fury on North’s face was telling, as if some great secret had just been revealed. Immediately thereafter, the questioning of Congressman Brooks was shut down by the committee chair on the grounds that the subject touched upon a “highly sensitive and classified area.” The short exchange is documented in a video here.
FEMA and the National Security Police State
Executive Orders have been on the books for a half century now, empowering the Federal Emergency Management Agency to take control of everything from public and private communications, energy and transportation to housing and more. Most disturbing is that these presidential decrees encompass the registration and seizure of people, including the separation of family members, should the government find it necessary.
These orders have been revised and updated throughout the years by different presidents, regardless of party affiliation. Until recently, they have operated under the premise of some great national emergency that would justify the use of such draconian measures. That premise disappeared on March 16, 2012 when Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13603, titled “National Defense Resources Preparedness”.
In this Executive Order, Obama essentially gave himself the authority to declare Martial Law in times of war or peace. Section 310 authorized the heads of “each agency engaged in procurement for the national defense” to “take appropriate action to ensure that critical components, critical technology items, essential materials, and industrial resources are available from reliable sources when needed to meet defense requirements during peacetime, graduated mobilization, and national emergency.” Throughout the document, the phrase “in peacetime and in times of national emergency” is repeatedly used. The Order outlined specific duties, assigned to the heads of all of the major federal agencies, who would form a “Defense Production Act Committee.”
Speculation has circled for years as to when these plans might be utilized. With the advent of the government-orchestrated false-flag attacks of September 11, 2001, the feds have been increasingly hostile to the American people, our freedom, and privacy. Everyone has become a suspect in the government’s war OF terror.
Lessons From Louisiana
When Hurricane Katrina tore through New Orleans, there was flooding and storm damage. But the greatest destruction and devastation was not caused by the hurricane itself, but by the breached levees. But was it the hurricane that caused the levees to fail?
Eyewitnesses were interviewed who said they witnessed helicopters flying above the levees, which were accompanied by explosions on the levees. These eyewitnesses swear that the levees were blown.
In the aftermath of the Katrina fiasco, many people died due to a lack of clean drinking water, food, and shelter. Federal agencies were of no help. In fact, it seemed clear to those of us who were observing the story unfold at the time, that the federal “relief” agencies actually appeared to be hindering assistance operations. Volunteers and supplies were turned away, communications were cut, and agents went door to door confiscating the firearms of those who remained in their homes. Remember, for your own safety, be a good victim.
Just when it seemed as though nothing could get any worse, President George W. Bush added insult to injury by praising Michael Brown, the FEMA director, at a press conference by saying, “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job.” I lot of people thought the comment was laughable. It would have been, unless “Brownie” was doing exactly what he was supposed to be doing and the chaos, suffering, and deaths were all intentional.
Order Out of Chaos
As Hurricane Sandy made it’s track up the east coast, I remember thinking how odd it was that the forecasters had predicted that it would take a hard left-hand turn toward the northwest. Most storms of its kind tend to be pushed out into the Atlantic, toward the northeast by the jet stream. One meteorologist from the Weather Channel blamed a high-pressure wind system that he called a “blocking high” which changed the flow of the jet stream, a phenomenon he called “peculiar.” But, he noted, we’ve seen an increase in these “blocking highs” in recent years.
U.S. Patent No. 4,686,605 was one of three original patents awarded to Bernard Eastlund in 1987. Eastlund had worked with ARCO Power Technologies Incorporated (APTI), a subsidiary of Atlantic Richfield Company. APTI was the original contractor that built the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) station in Gakona, Alaska, in the early 1990s. This patent dealt with “Method and apparatus for altering a region in the earth’s atmosphere, ionosphere, and/or magnetosphere” and, among other things, included the following application, specifically mentioned in the patent:
“This invention has a phenomenal variety of possible ramifications and potential future…………..
