In light of Fox News' new chief propagandist Glenn Beck's recent
with regards to the existence of martial law holding facilities
within America, we at Infowars feel it necessary to further
enlighten Mr Beck on a few details.
The purpose of such facilities is to provide “temporary
housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals
and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster,”
the expansion of which under FEMA is codified under HR 645,
otherwise known as the National
Emergency Centers Act.
Ominously, the bill states that the camps can be used to “meet
other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland
Security,” an open ended mandate which many fear could
mean the forced detention of American citizens in the event
of widespread rioting after a national emergency or total economic
The issue of containment camps re-gained national
attention three years ago when it
was announced that Kellogg, Brown and Root had
been awarded a $385 million dollar contract by Homeland Security
to construct detention and processing facilities in the event
of a national emergency.
The language of the preamble to the agreement
veils the program with talk of temporary migrant holding centers,
but it is made clear that the camps will also be used "as
the development of a plan to react to a national emergency."
Following the story, first given wide attention by Prisonplanet.com,
website put together an alarming report that collated
all the latest information on plans to initiate internment of
political subversives and Muslims after the next major terror
attack in the US.
The article highlighted the disturbing comments of Sen. Lindsey
Graham, who encouraged torture supporting then Attorney General
Alberto Gonzales to target, "Fifth Columnists" Americans
who show disloyalty and sympathize with "the enemy,"
whoever that enemy may be.
It is important to stress that the historical precedent mirrors
exactly what the Halliburton camp deal outlines. Oliver North's
Reagan era Rex
84 plan proposed rounding up 400,000 refugees,
under FEMA, in the event of "uncontrolled population movements"
over the Mexican border into the United States.
The real agenda, just as it is with Halliburton's gulags, was
to use the cover of rounding up immigrants and illegal aliens
as a smokescreen for targeting political dissidents. From 1967
to 1971 the FBI kept a list of persons to be rounded up as subversive,
dubbed the "ADEX" list.
As recently highlighted by author Naomi Wolf, the National
Counterterrorism Center holds the names of close to one million
"terror suspects" with the number increasing by 20,000
Discussions of federal concentration camps are no longer the
rhetoric of paranoid Internet conspiracy theorists, they are
Halliburton, through their KBR subsidiary, is the same company
that built most of the major new detention camps in Iraq and
Afghanistan. KBR have been embroiled
in a human sex slave trade that their representatives
have lobbied to continue.
We have a company that has been handed a contract to build
prison camps in America that is engaged in trafficking young
girls and women. Can this horror movie get any more frightening?

A much discussed and circulated report, the Pentagon's
Civilian Inmate Labor Program, has recently been
updated and the revision details a "template for developing
agreements" between the Army and corrections facilities
for the use of civilian inmate labor on Army installations."
The plan is clearly to swallow up disenfranchised groups like
prisoners, immigrants and Muslims at first and then extend the
policy to include 'Fifth Columnists,' otherwise known as anyone
who disagrees with the government or exercises their Constitutional
Respected author Peter Dale Scott speculated that the "detention
centers could be used to detain American citizens if the Bush
administration were to declare martial law."
Daniel Ellsberg, former Special Assistant to Assistant Secretary
of Defense, called the plan, "preparation for a roundup
after the next 9/11 for Mid-Easterners, Muslims and possibly
dissenters. They've already done this on a smaller scale, with
the 'special registration' detentions of immigrant men from
Muslim countries, and with Guantanamo."
Furthermore, In 2002, FEMA sought bids from major
real estate and engineering firms to construct
giant internment facilities in the case of a chemical,
biological or nuclear attack or a natural disaster.
Okanogan County Commissioner Dave Schulz went
public in 2003 with his contention that his county
was set to be a location for one of the camps.
Furthermore, in May 2006, we exposed
the existence of 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 the implementation of
martial law, property and firearm seizures, mass vaccination
programs and forced relocation.
A whistleblower who was secretly enrolled into
the program told us that the feds were clandestinely recruiting
religious leaders to help implement Homeland Security directives
in anticipation of a potential bio-terrorist attack, any natural
disaster or a nationally declared emergency.
The first directive was for Pastors to preach
to their congregations Romans 13, the often taken out of context
bible passage that was used by Hitler to hoodwink Christians
into supporting him, in order to teach them to "obey
the government" when martial law is declared.
It was related to the Pastors that quarantines,
martial law and forced relocation were a problem for state authorities
when enforcing federal mandates due to the "cowboy mentality"
of citizens standing up for their property and second amendment
rights as well as farmers defending their crops and livestock
It was stressed that the Pastors needed to preach
subservience to the authorities ahead of time in preparation
for the round-ups and to make it clear to the congregation that
"this is for their own good."
Pastors were told that they would be backed up
by law enforcement in controlling uncooperative individuals
and that they would even lead SWAT teams in attempting to quell
Though some doubted the accuracy of this report
at the time due to its fundamentally disturbing implications,
the story was later confirmed by a KSLA 12 news report, in which
participating clergy and officials admitted to the existence
of the program.
Watch the video:
This program is continuing under the Obama administration
declaring that Barack Obama’s presidency
is appointed by God and that Obama himself is “God’s
In another detention camp related development,
last May it was revealed that the federal government is accepting
bids on the contracts from county governments or private companies
to build and run "family
detention centers" on both coasts and on the
Again, as with REX 84, the precedent is to deal
with an influx of immigrants.
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency
(ICE) already runs two similar camps, one of which hit the headlines
at the end of 2006 after residents in Taylor Texas held protests
outside the The T. Don Hutto detention facility.
One of the last acts of Congress in 2006 was to
send President Bush a bill that establishes a $38 million program
of National Park Service grants to preserve
Japanese POW internment camps in Hawaii, California,
Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and Idaho. Is this
really in the name of historical interest or does it dovetail
with programs on the books to intern hundreds of thousands of
dissidents in a time of crisis?
What could the government be contemplating that
leads it to make contingency plans to detain without recourse
millions of its own citizens? asked former Congressman Dan Hamburg
of the watchdog groupVoice of the Environment, Inc. in a article
carried by the San
Francisco Chronicle last year.
"Since 9/11, and seemingly without the notice
of most Americans, the federal government has assumed the authority
to institute martial law, arrest a wide swath of dissidents
(citizen and noncitizen alike), and detain people without legal
or constitutional recourse in the event of an emergency influx
of immigrants in the U.S., or to support the rapid development
of new programs." Hamburg co-wrote with Lewis Seiler.
The article continued:
Beginning in 1999, the government has entered
into a series of single-bid contracts with Halliburton subsidiary
Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) to build detention camps at
undisclosed locations within the United States. The government
has also contracted with several companies to build thousands
of railcars, some reportedly equipped with shackles, ostensibly
to transport detainees.
According to diplomat and author Peter Dale
Scott, the KBR contract is part of a Homeland Security plan
titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of "all
removable aliens" and "potential terrorists."
Over the past decade we have witnessed an extreme
acceleration of the physical implementation of a framework and
infrastructure ready to receive those who will not go along
with a coordinated destruction of traditional American values
You do not need any confirmation one way or the
other on this issue from Fox News or Glenn Beck, who has
a track record as one of the most insidious corporate
propagandists on television.
Just over a year ago Beck was on TV every week
CNN viewers that Ron Paul supporters, libertarians
and the anti-war left were terrorist sympathizers. Beck inferred
that the U.S. military should be used to silence such dissenters,
a theme we revealed to be a direct talking point that could
be traced back to a September 2006 White House directive.
Now Beck acts like Ron Paul's closest supporter,
featuring interviews with the Congressman every other day.
