Homeland Security Moves to Man FEMA Camps
December 19, 2011
On December 6, we reported on
a document originating from Halliburton subsidiary KBR describing services KBR is looking to farm out to subcontractors. The document was passed on to us by a state government employee.
Our research has since discovered another document that further reveals the ongoing effort by the government to establish FEMA camps and provide services for them in the event of an emergency, including a real or more likely a false flag terrorist event.
In May of 2011, the FedBizOpps.gov website posted a Department of Homeland Security solicitation document entitled “National Responder Support Camp”
calling for contractors to construct and operate camps “in which to stage responders and other authorized personnel and assets deployed for occurrences or events requiring a federal government response. The National Responder Support Camps contract will be used by FEMA, or by other federal agencies through FEMA, consistent with the specific authorities of the agency utilizing the contract’s services.”
“During disaster situations or other events, FEMA federal, state and local responders may need a place that provides shelter, food, and additional basic needs,” the document continues. “Hence the need for the procurement of effective and efficient Responder Support Camps is present.”
The DHS document makes a point of stating that FEMA’s role transcends “hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, cyclones, tornadoes, blizzards, acts of terrorism, tsunamis, or avalanches” and includes playing “a role in assisting with events designated by the Secretary of Homeland Security as National Special Security Events (NSSEs) and with respect to National Response Framework activities of federal agencies.”
In 2008, a document exposed by Wikileaks
revealed the mechanics behind the NSSE as it related to the 2008 Republican National Convention held in St. Paul, Minnesota. “Compiled by Terri Smith, the Branch Director for Response, Recovery and Mitigation at the Minnesota Homeland Security and Emergency Management agency (HSEM), the 31-page file offers a veritable bird’s-eye view onto the close coordination amongst federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, including the Pentagon’s U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM) during a so-called National Special Security Event (NSSE),” Tom Burghardt
wrote in November, 2008.
The Democrat convention held in Denver in 2008 was also considered a National Special Security Event.
The repressive political agenda of “lead federal agencies” operating under NSSE revealed itself during the Republican convention when activists in Minnesota were arrested and charged with “conspiracy to riot in the 2nd degree in the furtherance of terrorism.”
In addition to arresting political activists and charging them with terrorism, operations during the NSSE included establishing a Multi-Agency Communications Center (MACC), described in the Wikileaks file as “a centralized communications and coordination center operated 24 hours a day during the NSSE.” The Minnesota MACC was “staffed by representatives from all participating operational security entities, local government operations, and public and private institutions who are responsible for the critical infrastructures of power, gas and telecommunications.”
Other elements participating included NORTHCOM, the FBI and local law enforcement, the latter an obvious violation of a consistently trampled Posse Comitatus.
“To conclude, the Wikileaks document provides new and startling information how federal, state and local law enforcement entities acting in concert with corporatist ‘private partners’ during September’s Republican National Convention, conspired to deny American’s their right to peacefully protest,” Burghardt writes.
The benign language of the “National Responder Support Camp” document belies the real character of FEMA and its genuine agenda. So-called “responder camps” are less about coordinating response to hurricanes than assisting in the implementation and facilitation of a police state apparatus during martial law and establishment political events covered under NSSE, as noted above.
The officially stated purpose of FEMA
is to “reduce the loss of life and property and protect the Nation from all hazards, including natural disasters, acts of terrorism, and other man-made disasters, by leading and supporting the nation in a risk-based, comprehensive emergency management system of preparedness, protection, response, recovery, and mitigation,” but this is merely a public cover for the agency.
During the Reagan administration, it became apparent that FEMA’s mandate was the implementation of martial law and the round-up and detainment of American citizens under presidential directive 54, which spawned Rex 84, Operation Garden Plot and a number of other so-called “civil disturbance” programs.
With the scantily covered National Emergency Centers Establishment Act
, the Military Commissions Act
, and the recent NDAA
sailing through Congress, and a raft of lesser legislation and unconstitutional directives, we are beginning to see the contours of the police state.
The “National Responder Support Camp” is but another puzzle piece of a larger mosaic representing totalitarian control of the population, specifically political opponents deemed to be dangerous enemies of the state, or simply terrorists, who will be disappeared into a nightmare dystopian world of concentration camps and gulags operated by the military at the behest of the global elite after martial law is declared.
