I have been wondering through the midst of this illegal alien crisis, I have been wondering why are we not seeing the 800 known FEMA camps being used to house these illegal alien immigrants. After all, the following paragraphs establish the fact that this is why the concept of FEMA camps came into being back in 1987.
There is not a simple one sentence, or own paragraph answer to this question except to say the aftermath of what has begun serves to threaten every American citizen. In the following paragraphs I systematically present the notion that there are two types of FEMA camps. There is the one for the present illegal aliens and there are the untouched 800 FEMA camps plus the use of public venues for you and me.REX 84When the REX 84 FEMA Camp program was created by people such as Lt. Col. Oliver North,
who was both National Security Council White House Aide, and NSC liaison to the Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA, and John Brinkerhoff, the deputy director of “national preparedness” programs for FEMA’s role in the creation of the camps.m our ultimate fate for a future generations of Americans was sealed.
The existence of the Rex 84 plan was first revealed during the Iran-Contra Hearings in 1987, and subsequently reported by the Miami Herald on July 5, 1987. ”

……Wal-Mart and the National Security State
Do you remember when Wal-Mart began to run the East German Stasi “snitch of your neighbor ” message at the checkout counters at Wal-Mart stores in which then DHS director, Janet Napolitano commanded Wal-Mart shoppers to spy on each other?
I wished I could say that Wal-Mart’s participation began and ended with this development. It is not likely that when you enter Wal-Mart to shop, that you are thinking to yourself that Wal-Mart would make a wonderful FEMA detention camp in times of national emergency or martial law. You might want to think just that if you continue to shop at Wal-Mart as you contribute to your own demise.
“FEMA Camp Question” ~ The Gates of Hell Have Opened and the US Is Being Attacked and Occupied | Dave Hodges – The Common Sense Show
FEMA Camp Question
During the Jessie Ventura Conspiracy Theory series, Jesse covered the FEMA camp issue ,which was later banned. In the episode, Jesse and Alex Jones visited a FEMA camp in Texas and videotaped CHILDREN playing behind restraining fences.
Why? This unanswered question never settled properly with me.Yesterday, while walking on the beach, it occurred to me that this nagging question may have been answered 5 years ago during the H1N1 scare by former Kansas State Patrol officer, the highly decorated Greg Evensen.
……Rehearsing for Martial LawLast fall, FEMA, DHS and select foreign entities extensively rehearsed for the following contingencies in the following list of preparedness and disaster drills planned and carried out over a six week period:
1. FEMA purchase orders for over $14.2 million for MREs and heater meals to be delivered to Region III by October 1st, 2013. 2. FEMA purchase orders for 22 million pouches of emergency water to be delivered to Region III by October 1st, 2013.
3. FEMA purchase orders for $13.6 million for MREs and heater meals to be delivered to Austin, TX. by October 1st, 2013.
4. $11 million in antibiotics to be delivered to FEMA region III by October 1st ordered by CDC
5, Nine-week training course for UN Peacekeepers in CONUS to learn Urban Warfare, English, and US weapons systems beginning late July for 386,000 troops to be completed by October 1st
6. Great Shakeout Drill Scheduled for October 17, 2013 7. More Than 1,000 Banks Plan National Cyber-Attack Drill Oct. 16-17, Oct. 23-24 8. Quantum Dawn’ Is a Cyber-Attack Bank Drill – 9. GridEx2 Nov. 13-14 The Grid EXII drill was the most concerning of these drills because it rehearsed an EMP attack upon our grid and estimates at the time forecasted a 90% mortality rate, in America, following such an event within two years.
The most telling part of these drills is that they all have in common the need to impose strict martial law in which the tenets of EO 13603 will come into play.Last fall, I expressed serious concerns over so many of these drills taking place in such a short period of time. I raised the question of martial law arising from any one of these events going hot. In hindsight, I think I was too close to the truth as to what is coming because even the Russian media invited me on a news show that is distributed in New York City and Washington DC, as well as in 35 other countries.On October 28, 2013,

Not on my watch!Not on my watch! I have been writing that my military sources tell me that their greatest fears are beginning to become realized because the United States will be, in the relatively near future, this country will be under martial law and the bulk of the occupation force will be comprised by foreign troops operating under the flag of the United Nations.
Will You Survive Being Sent To A FEMA Camp?
Our banker hijacked government has eviscerated the Constitution through tyrannical legislative acts such asThe Military Commissions Act,The Patriot Acts I and II,The John Warner Defense Act,The NDAA,Quantitative Easing I, II and to infinity.
These events explain why a mass incarceration/genocide is a potential event in the future of America. Why? Simple, we are on the precipice of World War III with Russia and we are a false flag event away from total martial law and the above legislative acts and executive orders stand in evidence of this position.This article does not debate the existence of FEMA Camps i.e. Concentration Camps, they exist.
Rather, this article examines what one could do to survive a period in our future where nobody is safe and anyone for any reason could be sent to a concentration camp.The Legal Infrastructure Is In Place for Mass DetentionsThe NDAA should scare the life out of every American Citizen. This allows the government the authority to secretly arrest Americans, without due process, torture and even murder American citizens without so much as a trial.
The National Defense Resources Preparedness allows the president, without going through the U.S. Congress, the ability to seize control of all corporate assets, manufacturing operations, and conscript American civilians into work brigades i.e. slave labor, seize all food, impose restrictions and rations on all vital resources and to hand these resources to the Department of Homeland Security.

The Common Sense Show
One prominent talk show host is telling his listeners to get out of the country because the Denver Post is reporting that there are 200,000 Russian troops in America. I have previously reported on government documents which demonstrate that FEMA reached a bilateral agreement Russia to bring in 15,000 Russian troops.
I also believe that there are Russian sleeper cells located throughout America based upon reports from Russian defectors and eyewitnesses such as Dr. Susan Helman of Gatlinburg, TN.
But to leave the country based on the erroneous reports of a talk show host would be a gross mistake.

Napolitano Leaving DHS Under Cloud of Suspicion
Townhall.com ^ | July 15, 2013 | Rachel Alexander
Posted on Monday, July 15, 2013 8:24:25 AM by Kaslin
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano suddenly announced last week that she was resigning her position at the embattled agency in order to take a $750,000-a-year job as president of the University of California system. This will more than triple her salary, which was $200,000 at DHS.
The timing of her resignation is highly unusual for a member of the president’s cabinet. Most cabinet members who leave after a president’s first term don’t wait an extra six months into the second term.
Many believe she abruptly left DHS because of some sordid dealings that are about to be discovered. Her tenure at DHS has been characterized by back-to-back lawsuits and multiple controversies regarding the agencies DHS oversees, which include the TSA, ICE, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services and FEMA.
Following outrage and controversy last year over the Obama administration’s unprecedented decision to invite Russian troops for terror drills on U.S. soil, the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA is now under fire for signing more agreements to “cooperate” with Vladimir Putin’s Russian “Emergencies Ministry” EMERCOM in a wide array of fields.
Among the controversial deals outlined in an official Russian press release: exchanging of “experts” and “experience,” “provision of security at mass events,” and “cooperation in disaster response operations.” Critics of the scheme reacted with a mixture of fury and deep concerns.After the news was picked up in the alternative media, it quickly went viral, stirring widespread fears that Russian forces could be deployed inside the United States under the bogus guise of “security.”
Officials from both governments rushed to deny the speculation, trying to downplay the agreements as merely routine international collaboration. However, it remains unclear why the American people would need or want any sort of “assistance” from the Russian government, which, despite the supposed fall of communist tyranny, is still widely regarded as a lawless gangster regime.

I realize it’s a rhetorical question, but it’s for the same reason they’re not carrying the story of the massive personnel firings (and not the reasons when reported) in the top echelons of the government, military and banks; they’re bought, paid and controlled by higher up handlers.

But on closer inspection, the black plastic containers are what the narrator reveals to be as many as 125,000 outsized casket liners that are in no way there to service the needs of live American citizens!

Ex-Feds and Wall Street Execs Are Going Into Hiding – Part One
In my role as a talk show host, I have been approached by individuals who claim to have “insider information” about what is coming, and according to these individuals, what is coming is very bad. Most credible sources demand complete anonymity. As a result, I have found myself in a position to try and evaluate whether to write about and broadcast some very controversial information. Sometimes, my insider information turns out to be stunningly accurate as evidenced by the Chris Stevens murder story which was spot on. My information on the Aurora Batman shootings has also proven to be very accurate.
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.

Seven hundred National Guard members from the Northeast and Caribbean will be in central New York this week for disaster preparedness training. They will train for certification as a regional disaster response force capable of assisting responders following a chemical, biological, nuclear or high-explosive incident, according to the Associated Press.
National Guard Homeland Response Force.
They are part of the National Guard Homeland Response Force (HRF) controlled by the Department of Defense. There are currently ten HRF units hosted by one state in each FEMA region, according to the Pentagon.
In 2008, candidate Obama called for a domestic civilian army.
It is being put together now. This comes from FEMA’s Website.
On March 13, 2012, the White House announced an innovative partnership between the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) to establish a FEMA-devoted unit of 1,600 service corps members within AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) solely devoted to disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. This partnership builds on the historic collaboration between the two agencies and will enhance the federal government’s disaster capabilities, increase the reliability and diversity of the disaster workforce, promote an ethic of service, expand education and economic opportunity for young people, and achieve significant cost savings for the American taxpayer. When the program is at full operational capability, and in an average disaster year, we expect to see a savings of approximately $60 million in a year.
Every year, millions of Americans suffer the effects of natural and man-made disaster. Disasters can lead to human losses, social problems, economic harm, and environmental damage. Given the prevalence and severity of disasters and other hazards, FEMA is looking for ways to diversify and fortify its existing disaster workforce structure.
(““We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” Barack Obama, 2008″) FEMA Corps To Be Brownshirts For Homeland Security Emergency Response?
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” Barack Obama, 2008
Homeland Security has announced the creation of a new FEMA corps to tap volunteers for disaster/emergency responses. The program is a partnership between FEMA and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), itself managed under the Homeland Security umbrella.
The Department of Homeland Security plans to start with 1,600 volunteers dispatched across the country and specially trained to provide “critical disaster services” during an emergency response. Volunteers are not FEMA employees, but will wear branded uniform clothing and will be directed by FEMA. DHS boasts that the entry level positions will prepare these trainees for careers in the ever-bloating disaster response bureaucracy.
While this new unit may seem innocuous and even advisable in the context of helping after natural disasters (despite the abuses seen after Hurricane Katrina), the FEMA Corps takes on much more ominous overtones when one considers their likely roles under Homeland Security’s plans and provisions for responding to other disasters– states of emergency over man-made disasters (false flags for instance), economic instability, pandemics, social unrest or the like.
Smear number 654: Ron Paul says tornado victims shouldn’t get help
Dinosaur Media Misquotes Ron Paul, Jumps On Congressman Over Tornado Comments 2012 03 03 tornado
Once again the corporate media has pounced on any opportunity it can to smear Congressman Ron Paul as he heads into perhaps the most important week of his presidential campaign thus far.
Paul explained that he was not an advocate of the federal government having authority and responsibility over such situations, that he does not support the notion of federal money, and that the states should be allowed to take care of their own.
Of course, being the attack dog hacks that they are, corporate media minions immediately poured forth with headlines such as “Ron Paul: Victims of Midwestern tornado outbreak should not get federal aid” and “Ron Paul: No Federal Financial Aid For Tornado Victims”.
Federal agency seeks to track “effectiveness of public affairs messaging”
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has followed in the footsteps of the DHS in looking to hire a private contractor that will monitor news coverage of the agency’s activities on a 24/7 basis.
FEMA Follows DHS In Monitoring News Coverage Of Its Activities 24/7 normal 05142 FEMA National Response and Coordination Center
“FEMA is planning to award a 100% small business set-aside contract to a media monitoring firm that can monitor, archive and measure all local news in “major Nielsen markets,” all nationally broadcast news and all cable outlets for their news coverage of FEMA activities in the field across the U.S.,” reports Government Security News.
The program is similar in nature to a Department of Homeland Security monitoring effort that stoked controversy and a congressional hearing after it emerged that the DHS had hired an outside contractor, General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, to monitor social media outlets along with a list of websites, on a “24/7/365 basis,” in order to uncover “any media reports that reflect adversely on the U.S. Government and the Department.”
This included monitoring remarks by residents of Standish, Michigan in “newspaper comment talkbacks, local blogs, Twitter posts, and publicly available Facebook posts,” to gage the response to a plan to bring Guantanamo Bay detainees to a local prison.
Although the FEMA contract does not specifically mention the monitoring of blogs and comments made by Internet users, it does call for the program to “Monitor the effectiveness of public affairs messaging,” which implies that feedback from citizens regarding FEMA’s activities will be part of the process.
The FEMA contract for the monitoring service explains that the agency is looking for information on “media statistics including the audience exposure and publicity value” for news items related to FEMA.
Concerned about its reputation in the eyes of American citizens who are growing increasingly wary of big government, this is not the first time FEMA has reached out to try and massage its image following the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, which “evoked some of the harshest criticism the agency has ever faced.”
Fed Interest in Food Storage Facility Connected to FEMA Executive Order 10999 food+storage column+systemOn Thursday, Stewart Rhodes of Oath Keepers posted a bulletin on the organization’s blog reporting on federal agents demanding a food storage cannery in Tennessee turn over customer lists so they might discover who is purchasing bulk storable foods and storing it at the facility owned by Mormons.
As Rhodes notes, it is part of Mormon Church religious doctrine to store food for hard times and emergencies. Church doctrine states that each family store a year’s worth of basic dry goods along with three months worth of store-bought canned and boxed foods. “These Church canneries also often sell food storage items to non-church members, seeing it as both morally right and prudent to help their neighbors store food, whatever their faith,” Rhodes explains.
He then speculates as to why the feds would demand customer lists. “DHS/FEMA wants to know which Americans have food storage so the federal government can at some future point confiscate that food. Just as with lists of gun owners, compiling such lists is the first step toward future confiscation,” he writes.
In fact, the government codified the concept of food confiscation and redistribution when president Kennedy issued Executive Order 10999 on February 16, 1962.
10999 was one of several executive orders signed by Kennedy under the rubric of “national emergency” that extended extrajudicial power to FEMA, including the ability to control communications, energy, food, fuel, farms, transportation, highways, railroads, inland waterways and seaports, health, education and welfare. The EO also allows FEMA to organize citizen work brigades under government control and undertake the relocation of the population.
10999 also gives FEMA the authority to control all public storage facilities.
On June 3, 1994, president Clinton consolidated all previous FEMA executive orders into one all-encompassing order, #12919.
As many have noted, FEMA is not an emergency agency. It is a martial law agency. It is often referred to as the “secret government” of the United States.
“It is not an elected body, it does not involve itself in public disclosures, and it even has a quasi-secret budget in the billions of dollars,” writes Harry V. Martin. “This government organization has more power than the President of the United States or the Congress, it has the power to suspend laws, move entire populations, arrest and detain citizens without a warrant and hold them without trial, it can seize property, food supplies, transportation systems, and can suspend the Constitution.”
If we take the above into consideration, it makes sense that the feds would be interested in keeping track of facilities storing food supplies.

Don’t panic! FEMA urges Americans not to worry as national alert system is tested
Daily Mail ^ | Nov.7, 2011 | Daily Mail Reporter
Posted on Tuesday, November 08, 2011 6:14:15 PM by Free ThinkerNY
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) are spearheading an aggressive public education campaign reminding Americans not to panic when they lose television and radio service for a few minutes on Wednesday during a test of the Emergency Alert System.
Although the public alert mechanism is decades old and often tested and used at the local level, it has never before been tested on a nationwide scale.
This first-ever test will occur at 2:00pm EST on Wednesday, November 9 and will occur simultaneously across the U.S. and its territories, lasting up to three-and-a-half-minutes.
FEMA, the FCC, and Homeland Security plan to commandeer the airwaves next month. The Emergency Alert System (EAS) will be tested at 1 PM EST on November 9. EAS alerts are transmitted over radio and television broadcast stations, cable television and other media services.
Local and state EAS components are tested weekly and monthly, but this will be the first national test of the system. It is significant that FEMA will conduct the mandatory test.
FEMA was created by executive fiat. EO 12148 was signed into law by a stroke of Jimmy Carter’s pen on July 20, 1979. FEMA is described as a federal agency designed to coordinate government response to natural disasters that overwhelm the resources of local and state authorities.
In fact, the federal agency was established as part of a martial law mechanism.
FEMA plans on suspension of the US constitution exposed during Iran contra hearings. Oliver North is questioned by Jack Brooks.
Under Reagan, FEMA was headed by Louis O. Giuffrida, the former national guard general who contributed to the Garden Plot and Cable Splicer, two sub programs under REX 84, a plan to establish concentration camps in America. Operation Cable Splicer is described as “the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government.” For more information on these martial law programs, see Mary Louise, Stalag 17, American Style Plans For Civilian Internment (& Worst).
Giuffrida, a counterinsurgency enthusiast, focused the agency’s resources on the “civil disturbance” aspect of its charter and worked to undermine Posse Comitatus. In 1982, Reagan formally militarized FEMA with National Security Decision Directive (NSDD 26). The result was a series of national training exercises led by the military. Under REX 82, civilian police from around the country received what FEMA euphemistically referred to as “military police methods” for quelling domestic political unrest.
A d v e r t i s e m e n t
Under Reagan, with Giuffrida at the helm, FEMA mutated “civil defense planning into a military/police version of civil society,” a plan on a collision course with Posse Comitatus.
“Hidden behind FEMA’s benevolent face as the body whose chief responsibility is disaster relief, another FEMA exists,” Ritt Goldstein wrote in 2002, referring to Bush’s effort to turn the agency into a counter-terrorism and “enemy combatant” detention outfit under the newly established Department of Homeland Security.
“At present, the final contents and disposition of the Reagan security initiatives, part of a national crisis plan, remains beyond public knowledge,” Goldstein writes. “But given the ‘War On Terror’s’ scope, even if a formal crisis is not declared, speculation exists that a de facto drift into an effective deployment of FEMA’s crisis powers could occur.”
Next month’s EAS test represents the public notification aspect of that national crisis plan. It is significant that EAS will be tested nationally. Natural disasters are usually regional affairs and do not require a nationwide response. The new national EAS system is designed for a more significant event that conforms to the implementation of martial law as envisioned under Garden Plot and Cable Splicer, a plan that was nearly revealed when Representative Jack Brooks of Texas grilled Oliver North during the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987 (see the video above).
