The Real Purpose of FEMA

By the time the masses see the bars the door will have already slammed shut. - David Icke

Our society is one of the most tightly controlled societies on earth. These controls are always sold to us with some good intention in mind, e.g. the environment, the children, a drug-free America, victory over terrorism. However, these controls carry a price: i.e. our lives, our liberty and our pursuit of happiness. - by Doug Newman, June 25, 2007

The Reality Of FEMA Camps And The Martial Law ApparatusLee Rogers
February 3rd, 2009
http://www.roguegovernment.com/The_Reality_Of_FEMA_Camps_And_The_Martial_Law_Appartus/14096/0/13/13/Y/M.html It is a fact that the federal government has many facilities right now that can be used to house large numbers of political dissidents if the need arises
There is no doubt that the government is preparing a nationwide system of detention facilities under the guise of emergency management that could be used to house large quantities of Americans during a time of civil strife. Many think that it is a conspiracy theory, but it is not. It is a fact that the federal government has many facilities right now that can be used to house large numbers of political dissidents if the need arises. During World War II, the U.S. government through an executive order by FDR forced many Japanese-Americans to move into internment camps.
In 2006, George W. Bush signed legislation to preserve these camps. Why would he do this unless there was a chance that they would be used in the future? In addition, KBR the engineering and construction arm of Halliburton was recently awarded a $385 million contract to build detention facilities under the guise that they would be used to house illegal immigrants. This news broke at a time in which outrage against illegal immigration was at an all-time high and covered extensively in the media which in essence made the announcement less controversial. There is also a great deal of anecdotal and video reports of detention facilities in many areas around the nation that have been posted on the Internet by concerned citizens. With all of this in mind, it is additionally disturbing that institutions like the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Northern Command have been incrementally moving this country into a militarized police state through a wide variety of initiatives and programs. With the economy unraveling on a day to day basis the possibility of civil strife becomes greater and greater and the possibility of the establishment needing these types of facilities continually increases.
Last week we were the first to break news of legislation proposed in Congress by Representative Alcee Hastings (D-FL) that would legalize and authorize the construction of National Emergency Centers on open and closed military bases which would be run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency otherwise known as FEMA. It is already confirmed that infrastructure which could possibly be used in this capacity is already available to the U.S. government. So for all intents and purposes this bill will essentially provide the legal capacity for them to use already existing facilities as emergency centers. It also provides the government the authority to create additional facilities on closed and open military reservations so long as a minimum of 6 emergency centers are built to fulfill the needs of the FEMA regions designated in the bill. The language in the bill also authorizes the Secretary of Homeland Security to use these facilities for whatever purpose that the Secretary believes is necessary. So if the Secretary wanted to use them as concentration camps, death camps or torture facilities, the language in the bill authorizes that activity.
We also have a declassified U.S. Army document posted on the U.S. Army’s official web site outlining U.S. Army Regulation 210-35 which describes standard operating procedures on how to setup a Civilian Inmate Labor Program. Although the document focuses in on using individuals that are already in civilian prisons for the purposes of the program, the standard operating procedures included in this document could be used for political dissidents or anyone for that matter who are taken to National Emergency facilities on military reservations.
Additionally, in the 1980s it was reported that Oliver North had assisted FEMA in drafting preparations for civil defense. The plans included the suspension of the U.S. Constitution, the imposition of martial law, internment camps, turning control of state and local governments to military commanders and giving dictator like powers to FEMA in the event of a national emergency including events such as nuclear war and widespread political dissent. This news was reported by the Akron Beacon Journal, the Miami Herald and other publications on and after July 5th 1987. North himself was questioned about this report during the Iran-Contra scandal by Congressman Jack Brooks but was stopped by the committee Chairman because it touched upon classified information.
In 2002, the Sydney Morning Herald ran an additional report, referencing these prior news articles and additional information stating that the conditions for martial law have been set in the United States.
With the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Northern Command in 2002, the federal government has even more tools to use to quell dissent during a time of civil strife. U.S. Northern Command now has a full brigade of troops at their disposal to deploy domestically. Additionally, an agreement between U.S. Northern Command and Canada Command has been signed without any sort of Congressional approval allowing Canadian military troops to enter the United States during a number of declared civil emergencies. On top of that, the Department of Homeland Security is providing grants at the local level to militarize police forces and setup a technological infrastructure to provide additional capabilities to track and trace the American people.
Back in 2007, George W. Bush signed National Security Presidential Directive 51 a continuity of government directive which is worded specifically to grant the President dictatorial powers over the executive, legislative and judicial branches during a declared catastrophic emergency.FEMA according to a report from the Associated Press has even been looking into ways to expand their capabilities of transporting large quantities of people via train during emergencies. This is particularly disturbing since this was the preferred method of transportation used by the Nazis to transport Jews to the concentration camps during World War II.
It is simply impossible to dismiss all of these separate reports as pure coincidence. There is a definitive push to setup a fully functioning apparatus that will be used in a time of civil strife or any sort of national emergency to have the capability to round up large groups of people and put them in FEMA run detention camps. It is important to note that this is not some sort of left-wing conspiracy to round up people who don’t like Barack Obama as Family Security Matters believes. Both Republicans and Democrats have been behind this agenda for several decades, as all of this information indicates.
It is true that nobody knows with 100% certainty if the government will round up large numbers of political dissidents during a time of civil strife. However, they are certainly building the infrastructure to do it. With the global economy collapsing around the world, there will naturally be an increasing amount of dissent the worse the economy gets. The protests in Iceland, France, Greece and in other countries is evidence of this. As a result, all of this information should be of great concern to the American people. After all, it is doubtful that they are getting this infrastructure ready if they didn’t think that they might have to use it in the future.

The "Black Curtain" around FEMA's Operations: http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=NIM20050911&articleId=929 FEMA was not created to respond to natural disasters and help American citizens. FEMA has only spent about 6 percent of its budget on national emergencies, the bulk of their funding has been used for the construction of secret underground facilities to assure continuity of government in case of a major emergency, foreign or domestic. FEMA was spending 12 times more for "black operations" than for disaster relief. It spent $1.3 billion building secret bunkers throughout the United States in anticipation of government disruption by foreign or domestic upheaval. Yet fewer than 20 members of Congress, only members with top security clearance, know of the $1.3 billion expenditure by FEMA for non-natural disaster situations. These few Congressional leaders state that FEMA has a "black curtain" around its operations.
DHS And FEMA Concentration Camps: Where's Your State Homeland Security's Civilian Concentration Camp? Where Will You Be Incarcerated? by Mark Lowry http://www.rense.com/general77/dhs.htm Existing legislation permits suspension of constitutional rights, arrests and detention of American Citizens. The legislation also provides the budget to provide for: private mercenary armies to enforce marshal law, adequate space to house at least 400,000 and maybe millions, use of prison inmate populations on work details, and defined concentration camp locations in numerous states.
FEMA Concentration Camps: Locations and Executive Orders: http://www.sianews.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1062 There over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general's signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached. The camps all have railroad facilities as well as roads leading to and from the detention facilities. Many also have an airport nearby. The majority of the camps can house a population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the largest of these facilities is just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive mental health facility and can hold approximately 2 million people.
FEMA - The Secret Government: http://sonic.net/sentinel/gvcon6.html Some people have referred to it 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. 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.
What is the Federal Emergency Management Agency? Simply put, it is the "secret government". http://www.freedomfiles.org/war/fema.htm This agency has powers and authority that go well beyond any other agency in the nation. What can FEMA do? It can suspend laws. It can move entire populations. It can arrest and detain citizens without a warrant and can hold them without a trial. It can seize property, food supplies, and transportation systems. And it can even suspend the Constitution of the United States. The "secret" black helicopters that are reported throughout the US, mainly in the West California, Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Colorado areas are flown by FEMA personnel.

Concentration Camps In America: Is it true? Is the Military or FEMA preparing to round up dissident civilians and lock them up in Slave Labor Camps? http://www.freedomdomain.com/concamp.html Believe it or not, this issue has been talked about in this country since the 1960's. The Japanese were interned during the Second World War. We are currently under Martial Law in America. Before Hitler took power, he passed laws making everything he was about to do legal. He then passd anti-gun legislation to reduce the possibility of opposition. All of the laws have been passed in this country giving the power to the President to suspend the Constitution under a so-called "Declared State of National Emergency". The power has also been given to the president to use the Military in Civilian Law Enforcement as well as the power to round up large groups of civilians.
Secret FEMA Plan To Use Pastors as Pacifiers in Preparation For Martial Law: http://www.greatdreams.com/political/secret_fema_plan.htm A Pastor has come forward to blow the whistle on a nationwide FEMA program which is training Pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to "obey the government" in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation.

Rex 84: FEMA's Blueprint for Martial Law in America: http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=ROL20060820&articleId=3010 We are dangerously close to a situation where ~ if the American people took to the streets in righteous indignation or if there were another 9/11 ~ a mechanism for martial law could be quickly implemented and carried out under REX 84. The Cheney/Bush administration has a plan which would accommodate the detention of large numbers of American citizens during times of emergency. The plan is called REX 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984. Through Rex-84 an undisclosed number of concentration camps were set in operation throughout the United States, for internment of dissidents and others potentially harmful to the state.

FEMA Concentration Camps: Locations and Executive Orders
25 September 2008
There over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general's signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached. Ask yourself if you really want to be on Ashcroft's list. The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a "mass exodus" of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons.
