In a new CNN report deeply rooted in Department of Homeland Security propaganda, CNN’s John Acosta says that the Federal government is not building detention camps around the country and that there is absolutely no proof of these kinds of activities. However, a highly controversial documentary released a couple of months ago offers the viewers almost 90 minutes of heart-stopping proof that plans for martial law and FEMA camps are indeed very real.
“Camp FEMA” has been called the most comprehensive documentary made on the topic of concentration camps in America. In the opening moments of the film, viewers are very quickly reminded that our government has turned to the use of detention camps to solve its problems before with the forced detention of over 120,000 Americans of Japanese decent in the early 1940’s. Forced labor, compulsory vaccinations, and mandatory “Americanization” classes top the list of atrocities committed against fellow citizens, on behalf of their Federal government.
The movie is kicked off by a single question, “Is it possible that history could repeat itself?”
Senate Select Committee Hearings and official FBI documents echo the rhetoric spewed forth by DHS and MIAC reports that transform patriot-minded third party supporters into dangerous potential terrorists of the homegrown variety. White House policies classify homeschoolers, gun rights activists and anti-abortionists as threats against the existing social and political order, by default creating an entire nation of radicals and revolutionaries – where everyone is a suspect… equally guilty until proven otherwise. History shows us what tyrannical governments have done with these people in the past.
CNN’s John Acosta also forgot to mention H.R. 645 introduced in early 2009 by Rep. Alcee Hastings, a Democrat from Florida convicted of bribery charges. In Camp FEMA, the audience learns the true meaning of “Emergency Centers.” The intent of the national emergency centers, according to Section 2 of HR 645, is to meet, “…for an extended period of time the housing, health, transportation, education, public works, humanitarian and other transition needs of a large number of individuals affected by an emergency or major disaster…” and can be used to advance “other purposes” not defined in the bill.
H.R. 645 is specific. If the ”Relocation Center” is to be a closed military installation, the installation will no longer be under the Secretary of Defense, but the jurisdiction will be transferred to the Secretary of Homeland Security. As “relocation centers” will be established in the wake of a “national emergency,” the center should then fall under FEMA. The Federal Emergency Management Agency, FEMA, is the emergency response arm of the Federal Government. Established during the Carter Administration to respond to national emergencies and disasters, and under the Bush administration FEMA was brought under the Department of Homeland Security.
If CNN and Acosta needed more proof, they should check out Army Regulation 210-35, which was set up during the Reagan Presidency, and surfaced under the Clinton Administration. According to Alex Jones, who appears in Camp FEMA, there are now 12 camps completed and ready to house American citizens.
Also ignored in the CNN report is the participation of NORTHCOM in creating an advertisement, run earlier this year, on the Army National Guard’s own website. For the first time in U.S. history, there has been an army unit assigned to The United States. NORTHCOM, according to an article in The Army Times “…may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios…” The ad for a “Corrections Officers and Internment/Resettlement Specialists” was removed in mid August. Camp FEMA points out that the ad was specific with regard to the needs of the National Guard; someone to train “as Internment Settlement Specialists, to control and supervise detainees.”
CNN has conveniently chosen not to address the legislations, the government reports or the list of terror suspects that the US government keeps adding to a database on a daily basis. “You don’t keep a list unless you intend to use it,” said William Lewis writer of Camp FEMA. Producer Gary Franchi added, “There are now over 1.2 millions names on the DHS watch list. How did we let this happen in the United States of America?” Why is CNN deliberately misleading the public about internment camps? You may find the answers in Camp FEMA.

The corporate media reports “tens of thousands” in attendance at the Tea Party demo today in the District of Criminals. Sources on the scene, however, put the number at hundreds of thousands upward to over a million.
“But whether the marchers reflect a small minority’s continuing anger over the more liberal direction the country began taking in the 2008 election or something deeper that could have repercussions in 2010 and 2012 is one of the questions the march may begin to answer,” reports Politico this afternoon.
Politico and the rest of the corporate media would like to characterize the mass movement as a right versus left sideshow that is of little relevance.
In fact, there was no such “liberal” direction taken after the dog and pony show 2008 election — Obama’s administration is packed with CFR, Trilateral, Bilderberg, and Federal Reserve insiders and he continues the wars and occupations initiated under his predecessor. The elite are using left cover to push their one-world agenda. It’s business as usual, never mind CNN, MSNBC, and yes Fox News. The Democrats are under the control of the Soros one-world faction and the Republicans under the neocon one-world faction. It is all a parlor trick.
Glenn Beck covered the demo this morning on Fox. Beck’s task is to make the event look like it was organized by the Republicans. Beck will never tell you the original tea party movement was created by libertarians, not one-world Republicans. Beck will not tell you the vast majority of the participants believe both parties represent one party — what Gore Vidal called the Property Party, the small elite that own D.C., excepting Ron Paul and few other brave souls.
That’s why Beck calls Paul a dangerous kook and his supporters violent extremists. How many people in the streets of Washington at the moment supported Ron Paul during the so-called election? How many of them want to go back to the days under the Republicans and the neocon front man Bush? The Republican party is the party of record budget deficits and mass murder (more than one million dead Iraqis and counting).
Ignore the Associated Press — one of the crown jewel’s of Operation Mockingbird — and its insistence in the above video to focus on a placard thanking Fox News. Instead, look at the streaming crowd in the street outside of the of the corporate whorehouse otherwise known as the U.S. Capitol.
That’s the real story, not Glenn Beck interviewing shameless Republicans who want to gain mileage off the event.
It looks like the government will have to do something — and soon — otherwise the movement to take back the government and restore the vision of the founders will reach critical velocity and there will be no turning back.
Is a false flag event to whip the populace back into slavish obedience just around the corner?

Washington, D.C., residents mourning the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks this morning heard an eerie echo just an hour later — reports that a Coast Guard vessel had fired shots at a boat in the Potomac River near the Pentagon.
But after half an hour of anxiety, the Coast Guard and local police said the whole thing was a training exercise, and no shots were fired at all.
Network news programs broke into regular morning shows to report the incident, and CNN went to blanket coverage.
Departures from Washington’s Reagan National Airport were halted from 10:08 a.m. to 10:29 a.m., delaying 17 departures, and FBI agents scrambled to the scene near the river. A law enforcement official, asking not to be identified, told the Associated Press the local FBI office had not been told ahead of time about the exercise.

The video here — covered by Alex Jones on his radio show — simply provides more evidence much of the news is propaganda and nonsense — and the joke is on us.
CNN’s Charles Jaco makes light of a fake Scud attack during the Gulf War.
Even the foundation-supported FAIR — recipient of grants from the Rockefeller Family fund — reported that the Pentagon is intimately involved in producing the “news.”
In February, 2002, FAIR reported: “Even if the PSYOPS officers working in the newsroom did not directly influence news reporting, the question remains of whether CNN may have allowed the military to conduct an intelligence-gathering mission against the network itself.”
The Dutch newspaper Trouw and France’s Intelligence Newsletter reported in 2000 that several officers from the US Army’s 4th Psychological Operations (PSYOPS) Group at Ft. Bragg worked in the news division at CNN’s Atlanta headquarters, starting in the final days of the Kosovo War.
In the 1980s, officers from the 4th Army PSYOPS group staffed the National Security Council’s Office of Public Diplomacy (OPD), a shadowy government propaganda agency that planted stories in the U.S. media supporting the Reagan Administration’s Central America policies, according to FAIR.
“CNN has always maintained a close relationship with the Pentagon.”
In fact, the entire corporate media is a subsidiary of the ruling elite, as evidenced by the CIA’s Operation Mockingbird.
“Starting in the early days of the Cold War (late 40’s), the CIA began a secret project called Operation Mockingbird, with the intent of buying influence behind the scenes at major media outlets and putting reporters on the CIA payroll, which has proven to be a stunning ongoing success. The CIA effort to recruit American news organizations and journalists to become spies and disseminators of propaganda, was headed up by Frank Wisner, Allen Dulles, Richard Helms, and Philip Graham (publisher of The Washington Post),” writes Mary Louise for Prison Planet. “Media assets will eventually include ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, Associated Press, United Press International (UPI), Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service, etc. and 400 journalists, who have secretly carried out assignments according to documents on file at CIA headquarters, from intelligence-gathering to serving as go-betweens. The CIA had infiltrated the nation’s businesses, media, and universities with tens of thousands of on-call operatives by the 1950’s.”

MSNBC desperately tries to make the Obama Joker poster a racial issue. It’s MSNBC, after all.
An obnoxious Greg Gutfeld for Fox makes it a Democrat vs. Republican thing and thus pushes the false right-left paradigm. Yawn.
CNN: It’s those damn Repubicans and Rush Limbaugh! Ordinary Americans are outraged, don’t you know.

According to CNN, the Pentagon is “to establish regional teams of military personnel to assist civilian authorities in the event of a significant outbreak of the H1N1 virus this fall, according to Defense Department officials.”
“The proposal is awaiting final approval from Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
The officials would not be identified because the proposal from U.S. Northern Command’s Gen. Victor Renuart has not been approved by the secretary.
The plan calls for military task forces to work in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. There is no final decision on how the military effort would be manned, but one source said it would likely include personnel from all branches of the military.
It has yet to be determined how many troops would be needed and whether they would come from the active duty or the National Guard and Reserve forces.
Civilian authorities would lead any relief efforts in the event of a major outbreak, the official said. The military, as they would for a natural disaster or other significant emergency situation, could provide support and fulfill any tasks that civilian authorities could not, such as air transport or testing of large numbers of viral samples from infected patients.
As a first step, Gates is being asked to sign a so-called “execution order” that would authorize the military to begin to conduct the detailed planning to execute the proposed plan.
Orders to deploy actual forces would be reviewed later, depending on how much of a health threat the flu poses this fall, the officials said.” (CNN, Military planning for possible H1N1 outbreak, July 2009)
The implications are far-reaching. The decision points towards the establishment of a police State. The Pentagon is already planning on the number of troops to be deployed in the case of a pandemic. A nationwide vaccination program is is already planned for the Fall. The pharmaceutical indsutry is slated to deliver 160 million vaccine doses by the Fall.
US Northern Command
“regional teams” have already been established under USNORTHCOM, which has been involved in preparedness training and planning in the case of a flu pandemic for several years (See U.S. Northern Command – Avian Flu. USNORTHCOM website).
Within the broader framework of “Disaster Relief”, Northern Command has, in the course of the last two years, defined a mandate in the eventuality of a public health emergency or a flu pandemic. The emphasis is on the militarization of public health whereby NORTHCOM would oversee the activities of civilian institutions involved in health related services.
According Brig. Gen. Robert Felderman, deputy director of USNORTHCOM’s Plans, Policy and Strategy Directorate: “USNORTHCOM is the global synchronizer – the global coordinator – for pandemic influenza across the combatant commands”(emphasis added) (See Gail Braymen, USNORTHCOM contributes pandemic flu contingency planning expertise to trilateral workshop, USNORTHCOM, April 14, 2008, See also USNORTHCOM. Pandemic Influenza Chain Training (U) pdf)
“Also, the United States in 1918 had the Spanish influenza. We were the ones who had the largest response to [a pandemic] in more recent history. So I discussed what we did then, what we expect to have happen now and the numbers that we would expect in a pandemic influenza.”
The potential number of fatalities in the United States in a modern pandemic influenza could reach nearly two million, according to Felderman. Not only would the nation’s economy suffer, but the Department of Defense would still have to be ready and able to protect and defend the country and provide support of civil authorities in disaster situations. While virtually every aspect of society would be affected, “the implications for Northern Command will be very significant.”
“[A pandemic would have] a huge economic impact, in addition to the defense-of-our-nation impact,” Felderman said. The United States isn’t alone in preparing for such a potential catastrophe. (Gail Braymen, op cit)
Apart from the CNN dispatch and a FOX news report, there has been virtually no mainstream press coverage of this issue. No statement has been made by USNORTHCOM. The Fox New Report suggests that US troops would be involved in organising military quarantines.

On July 30, Campbell Brown went after Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert for appearing on the Alex Jones Show. In a segment dubbed “Wingnut Watch,” Brown and her guest attacked Gohmert for his opposition to Obama’s plan to ration healthcare. Gohmert is a mental case, according to CNN, because he also would have presidential candidates demonstrate they are American citizens, as required by the Constitution.
Gohmert hit the “trifecta” when he appeared on the show of “9/11 truther” Alex Jones, according to Brown’s smirking guest.
Meanwhile, over at the Daily Beast, a website run by the former editor of Vanity Fair and The New Yorker and owned by IAC/InterActiveCorp (famous for consistently losing large sums of money) and Barry Diller (the man dedicated to eradicating free content on the web), the liberal scribe Michelle Goldberg writes Jones off as a John Bircher. Goldberg’s article is primarily about Judge Andrew Napolitano and Alex Jones is used to criticize Napolitano for the company he keeps:
On March 18, for example, Freedom Watch did a joint broadcast with the prolific conspiracy theorist Alex Jones—or, as Napolitano introduced him, “the one, the only, the great Alex Jones”—so that the show aired simultaneously on the Fox News Web site and on Jones’ radio program. It was an extraordinary collaboration, because Jones is best known as a leader of the 9/11 Truth movement. In his documentary 9/11: The Road to Tyranny, Jones argued that the attacks on the World Trade Center were orchestrated by the U.S. government as a pretext for the “power-mad megalomaniacs” of the New World Order to “usher in their corrupt world government, a world government where populations, their own documents show, will be herded into compact cities, will be issued national ID cards, and yes, even implantable microchips.”
Goldberg claims “Freedom Watch gave Jones a mainstream venue to warn that the banks had engineered the financial collapse in order to establish a global government that would collect carbon taxes to fuel its evil designs.”
Ms. Goldberg may not know it, but Freedom Watch is not a mainstream venue — it is an internet show and does not appear on Fox’s television network.
Goldberg is associated with The American Prospect, where she writes a column. Like the Daily Beast, The American Prospect excels at losing money and depends on grants to stay afloat. It takes money from the Schumann Center for Media and Democracy, a foundation created by the former president of General Motors Acceptance Corporation and an IBM trust fund baby. Schumann also funds the Tides Center, a “progressive” organization connected to the globalist George Soros.
Alex Jones is making the corporate media and the liberal foundation globalists nervous. In the past, they ignored him. Now they are increasingly shrill and desperate to portray him as a kook.
