While this idea and concept may seem absurd, the groundwork for this type of government was instituted on September 11, 2001, and will likely be fully activated after an Obama assassination. In the post Obama assassination atmosphere, a race war, martial law, and COG are all possibilities. Should the situation get out of hand, the FEMA concentration camps will be opened and utilized in the extermination of political dissidents. The only way to avoid this impending scenario is to immediately share this information globally in hopes that the International Community will informed and up-to-date regarding the political situation in America.
1. FEMA Concentration Camps: Yes, there are concentration camps in the United States of America. These camps have now been confirmed by both mainstream and alternative news sources and have been built for the wholesale slaughter of the American public. Bard-wire fences facing inward, human transport rail cars, mass coffins, and human incinerators reminiscent of Nazi Germany's death camps are all present at these FEMA facilities. When these camps will open for business is a question the whole world should be asking.
2. Operation ENDGAME: "Operation ENDGAME" is a 2003-2012 plan under implementation by the Office of Detention and Removal Operations of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The goal of "Operation Endgame" is to detain and deport all removable aliens and "suspected terrorists" currently living in the United States by 2012. The aliens and "suspected terrorists" removed from the United States will likely suffer the same fate that aliens and "suspected terrorists" faced in Nazi Germany; gas chambers.
3. COG (Continuity of Government): The "Continuity of Operations Plan" refers to the preparations and institutions maintained by the United States government for the survival of federal government operations in the case of catastrophic events. The George W. Bush administration put the "Continuity of Operations Plan" into effect for the first time directly following the September 11, 2001, attacks. This plan will be fully implemented in the event of an Obama assassination.
4. REX 84: "Readiness Exercise 1984", is a contingency plan developed by the United States federal government to suspend the United States Constitution, declare martial law, place military commanders in charge of state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens who were deemed to be "national security threats". This plan will be enacted in the event that the President of the United States declares a "State of Domestic National Emergency".
5. Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007: Senate bill "S-1959" permits the U.S. government to classify many types of venerated American political activity, such as civil disobedience, as terrorism. This law will be used to round-up any person that chooses to disobey orders, regardless of their constitutionality.
6. Presidential Directive 51: The "White House National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 51" allows the President to execute procedures for continuity of the federal government in the event of a "catastrophic emergency". Such an emergency is construed as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions.” Should Obama be assassinated, there is no doubt that new president Joe Biden will enact this law.
7. Enemy Belligerent Act: Senate bill "S-3081" allows for the infinite detention of any person, including American citizens, who is deemed to be an unprivileged enemy belligerent without criminal charges or trial for the duration of hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners in which the individual has engaged or which the individual has purposely and materially supported. This law basically allows any person at any time to be arrested and held without bail or trial for any amount of time deemed necessary by the U.S. government. This law paves the way for mass arrests and the wholesale extermination that is sure to follow.
8. Human Cattle Cars: The U.S. government has contracted with several companies,
namely KBR, to build thousands of railcars for human transportation which are
reportedly equipped with shackles to transport political detainees. Unfortunately,
history repeats and this is the exact same scenario that was used in Nazi
Germany to transport victims to the gas chambers. According to diplomat
and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is part of a Homeland Security
plan titled "Operation ENDGAME", which sets as its goal the removal
of "all removable aliens" and "potential terrorists" from the United States.
9. Mass Graves: Mass coffins have been appearing in strategic locations throughout the Unites States over the last couple of years. While U.S. government officials explain that the coffins are for catastrophic emergencies, there is a growing suspicion amongst Americans that something far more sinister may be going on. Whatever catastrophic event is about to transpire, the U.S. federal government will be able to bury hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people in an extremely short amount of time.
1. FEMA CONCENTRATION CAMPS
TRUTHER.ORG: Yes, there are concentration camps in the United States of America. These camps have now been confirmed by both mainstream and alternative news sources and have been built for the wholesale slaughter of the American public. Bard-wire fences facing inward, human transport rail cars, mass coffins, and human incinerators reminiscent of Nazi Germany's death camps are all present at these FEMA facilities.

Title: Bombshell: FEMA Camps Confirmed
Date: November 10, 2010
Gov. Jesse Ventura and his crew at Conspiracy Theory have blown the FEMA camp
issue wide open in a truly groundbreaking episode from the program’s second
season on TruTV. The “Police State” episode proves once and for all that the feds have
trained to take on American citizens, planned for riots and disasters and made
preparations to maintain order at any cost. Tune in this Friday, Nov. 12 at
10 PM Eastern/ 9 PM Central and leave the denial at the door.
At one of many real and verified FEMA
locations, Jesse Ventura and Alex Jones approach a “Residential Center” run by
Homeland Security in central Texas where they find locked doors, double-fences
and escape warnings around the entire perimeter. Further inside the facility,
they witness a playground complex, swings and slides for children. The crew
walks up to the front door and attempts to get some answers.
But the officials
refuse to either confirm or deny the facility’s purpose, including whether or
not American citizens are being held inside. However, our past investigations into this facility reveal that it has confined
both children and adults, including immigrants,
refugee seekers and American citizens. Despite hundreds of government documents
identifying emergency and contingency plans, including plans to deal with mass
insurrection, internment and quarantines, Ventura and his team repeatedly encounter outrageous
denial and avoidance by officials at every level.
Despite going through official channels, Ventura finds that Jim Gerlach (P-Pennsylvania)
repeatedly “ducks” TV cameras and refuses to answer questions about H.R. 645.
Another Congressman who co-sponsored the
bill starkly admits that FEMA camps exist, but rationalizes that they were put
in place to deal with “happy children.” This bizarre admission is another
confirmation that Congress and the leadership in Washington are out of touch
with the oppressive measures that have been authorized against the American
people. Later, Ventura and Jones visit the Deep South and discover what
appears to be an active cover-up to keep them from the truth. Outside the Atlanta, Georgia area is
another confirmed location in FEMA’s disaster preparation network.
They pay a visit to a facility storing thousands of plastic coffins where video has already confirmed the coffins in large numbers. Ventura and Jones discover upon arrival that a convoy of trucks has just left hauling away the evidence– thousands and thousands of liners the facility wanted to keep out of the way of cameras and public knowledge. Various plastic coffin locations affiliated with FEMA, as well as plans for mass graves and large-scale fatalities, have been previously exposed and reported upon– including photographs sent by an Infowars listener of an Alabama facility in 2009 with thousands and thousands of plastic coffin liners. Why then would the officials in Georgia engage in such a desperate and hurried cover-up?
Concerned about the fact that these programs admittedly monitor ‘returning veterans,’ ‘Ron Paul, Bob Barr and
Chuck Baldwin supporters’
and beyond, the TV show contacted a Fusion Center spokesman to find out more
about why they are targeting ordinary Americans.
Spokesman Lance Clem told the show point blank that these domestic intelligence
gathering centers have no oversight. Clem
shockingly admitted, “We police ourselves.”
The show’s producers have told Alex behind the scenes that this episode turned out to be the most exciting from its entire Second Season line-up. It not only confronts the FEMA camp issue head on, but uncovers significant reason to worry about the actions of Homeland Security and other agencies. At location after location, it is clear that its administrators are nervous to discuss what they are preparing, but it is clear from their records and public documents that they are preparing for something big.TruTv’s Episode Guide: “It’s been said the government has a plan to declare martial law and round up millions of United State citizens into concentration camps. Jesse may have found a conspiracy in plain sight as he investigates the proliferation of law enforcement Fusion Centers around the country. And they may be connected to hundreds of detention centers ready to accept prisoners at the stroke of a Presidential pen” (Infowars, 2010).

Title: Operation Endgame
Abstract: "Operation Endgame" is a 2003-2012 plan under implementation by the Office of Detention and Removal Operations of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement to detain and deport all removable aliens and "suspected terrorists" currently living in the United States by 2012.
The objectives of the plan are described in a memorandum from the director Anthony S. Tangemann to the Deputy Assistant Director of Field Operations dated June 27, 2003:
"The DRO provides the endgame to immigration enforcement and that is the removal of all removable aliens. This is also the essence of our mission statement and the 'golden measure' to our successes.2
A document issued by the Office of Detention and Removal Operations titled "Strategic Plan, 2003-2012 Detention and Removal Strategy for a Secure Homeland "describes Operation Engame as follows:
"Endgame is the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Office of Detention and Removal (DRO) multi-year strategic enforcement plan. It stresses the effective and efficient execution of the critical service DRO provides its partners and stakeholders to enforce the nation’s immigration and naturalization laws. The DRO strategic plan sets in motion a cohesive enforcement program with a ten-year time horizon that will build the capacity to “remove all removable aliens,” eliminate the backlog of unexecuted final order removal cases, and realize its vision" (Wikipedia, 2011).
3. CONTINUITY OF GOVERNMENT (COG)
TRUTHER.ORG: The "Continuity of Operations Plan" refers to the preparations and institutions maintained by the United States government for the survival of federal government operations in the case of catastrophic events. The George W. Bush administration put the "Continuity of Operations Plan" into effect for the first time directly following the September 11, 2001, attacks. This plan will be fully implemented in the event of an Obama assassination.
Title: Continuity Of Operations Plan
Date: September 11, 2001
Abstract: The Continuity of Operations Plan refers to the preparations and institutions maintained by the United States government, providing survival of federal government operations in the case of catastrophic events. The George W. Bush administration put the Continuity of Operations plan into effect for the first time directly following the September 11 attacks.
Since September 11, 2001, the newly created Department of Homeland Security has conducted at least three exercises to test continuity plans. The first, named "Forward Challenge '04", took place from May 12 to May 13, 2004, and included more than 40 government agencies. The second major exercise took place from June 20 to June 24, 2005. Titled "Pinnacle", the exercise tested responses to various emergencies, including a hypothetical act of terrorism. "Forward Challenge '06" was the third major exercise, and took place on June 19, 2006. It reportedly involved nearly 4,000 government personnel.
In September 2010, President Barack Obama informed Congress that the State of Emergency in effect since September 14, 2001, will be extended another year. The National Emergencies Act grants various powers to the president during times of emergency, and was intended to prevent a president from declaring a state of emergency of indefinite duration.
In 2007, Professor Larry J. Sabato criticized the incomplete nature of the plan in his book A More Perfect Constitution. In particular, he objected to the fact that there is no Constitutional procedure for replacing U.S. House members in the case of a large-scale attack which could potentially kill a large number of representatives. In regard to the Continuity of Operations Plan, Sabato said it "failed outright" during the September 11 attacks.
Title: Newsmax Calls For Military Coup In U.S.
Date: September 30, 2009
Abstract: There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.
America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn’t mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it. So, view the following through military eyes:
2. Top military officers can see the Constitution they are sworn to defend being trampled as American institutions and enterprises are nationalized.
3. They can see that Americans are increasingly alarmed that this nation, under President Barack Obama, may not even be recognizable as America by the 2012 election, in which he will surely seek continuation in office.
4. They can see that the economy — ravaged by deficits, taxes, unemployment, and impending inflation — is financially reliant on foreign lender governments.
5. They can see this president waging undeclared war on the intelligence community, without whose rigorous and independent functions the armed services are rendered blind in an ever-more hostile world overseas and at home.
6. They can see the dismantling of defenses against missiles targeted at this nation by avowed enemies, even as America’s troop strength is allowed to sag.
7. They can see the horror of major warfare erupting simultaneously in two, and possibly three, far-flung theaters before America can react in time.
8. They can see the nation’s safety and their own military establishments and honor placed in jeopardy as never before
Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a “family intervention,” with some form of limited, shared responsibility?
Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.
Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.
Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don’t shrug and say, “We can always worry about that later” (Newsmax, 2009).
Title: 'Continuity Of Government' Planning: War, Terror And The Supplanting Of The U.S. Constitution
Date: May 30, 2010
Source: Peter Dale Scott
Abstract: In July 1987, during the Iran-Contra Hearings grilling of Oliver North, the American public got a glimpse of “highly sensitive” emergency planning North had been involved in. Ostensibly these were emergency plans to suspend the American constitution in the event of a nuclear attack (a legitimate concern). But press accounts alleged that the planning was for a more generalized suspension of the constitution. As part of its routine Iran-contra coverage, the following exchange was printed in the New York Times, but without journalistic comment or follow-up.
Brendan Sullivan [North's counsel, agitatedly]: Mr. Chairman?Senator Daniel Inouye: I believe that question touches upon a highly sensitive and classified area so may I request that you not touch upon that?
Congressman Jack Brooks: I was particularly concerned, Mr. Chairman, because I read in Miami papers, and several others, that there had been a plan developed, by that same agency, a contingency plan in the event of emergency, that would suspend the American constitution. And I was deeply concerned about it and wondered if that was an area in which he had worked. I believe that it was and I wanted to get his confirmation.
Senator Daniel Inouye: May I most respectfully request that that matter not be touched upon at this stage. If we wish to get into this, I’m certain arrangements can be made for an executive session. But we have never heard if there was or was not an executive session, or if the rest of Congress was ever aware of the matter.
According to James Bamford, “The existence of the secret government was
so closely held that Congress was completely bypassed.” Key
individuals in Congress were almost certainly aware. Brooks was responding to a
story by Alfonzo Chardy in the Miami Herald. Chardy’s story alleged that Oliver North was involved with the Federal
Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in plans to take over federal, state
and local functions during a national emergency.
This planning for “Continuity
of Government” (COG) called for “suspension of the Constitution, turning
control of the government over to the Federal Emergency Management Agency,
emergency appointment of military commanders to run state and local governments
and declaration of martial law.” To my knowledge no one in the public
(including myself) attached enough importance to the Chardy story.
himself suggested that Reagan’s Attorney General, William French Smith, had
intervened to stop the COG plan from being presented to the President. Seven
years later, in 1994, Tim Weiner reported in the New York Times that what he
called “The Doomsday Project” – the
search for “ways to keep the Government running after a sustained nuclear
attack on Washington” –had “less than six months to live.” To say that
nuclear attack planning was over was correct, But this statement was also very
On the basis of Weiner’s report, the first two books on COG
planning, by James Bamford and James Mann, books otherwise excellent and
well-informed, reported that COG planning had been abandoned. They were wrong. Mann
and Bamford did report that, from the beginning, two of the key COG planners on the secret committee were Dick Cheney
and Donald Rumsfeld, the two men who implemented COG under 9/11. What they
and Weiner did not report was that under Reagan the purpose of COG planning had
officially changed: it was no longer for arrangements “after a nuclear war,”
but for any “national security emergency.”
This was defined in Executive
Order 12656 of 1988 as: “any occurrence, including natural disaster, military
attack, technological emergency, or other emergency, that seriously degrades or
seriously threatens the national security of the United States.” In other words extraordinary emergency
measures, originally designed for an America devastated in a nuclear attack,
were now to be applied to anything the White House considered an emergency.
Thus Cheney and Rumsfeld continued their secret planning
when Clinton was president; both men, both Republicans, were heads of
major corporations and not even in the government at that time. Moreover,
Andrew Cockburn claims that the Clinton administration,
according to a Pentagon source, had “no idea what was going on.” The
expanded application of COG to any emergency was envisaged as early as 1984,
when, according to Boston Globe reporter Ross Gelbspan, Lt. Col. Oliver North was working with officials of the Federal
Emergency Management Agency . . . to draw up a secret contingency plan to
surveil political dissenters and to arrange for the detention of hundreds of
thousands of undocumented aliens in case of an unspecified national emergency.
The plan, part of which was codenamed Rex 84, called for the suspension of the
Constitution under a number of scenarios, including a U.S. invasion
of Nicaragua. Clearly 9/11 met the conditions for the imposition of
COG measures, and we know for certain that COG planning was instituted on that
day in 2001, before the last plane had crashed in Pennsylvania.
Report confirms this twice, on pages 38 and 326. It was under the auspices
of COG that Bush stayed out of Washington on that day, and other
government leaders like Paul Wolfowitz were swiftly evacuated to Site R, inside
a hollowed out mountain near Camp David. What few have recognized is that, nearly a decade later, some aspects
of COG remain in effect. COG plans are still authorized by a proclamation of
emergency that has been extended each year by presidential authority, most
recently by President Obama in September 2009.
COG plans are also the
probable source for the 1000-page Patriot Act presented to Congress five days
after 9/11, and also for the Department of Homeland Security’s Project Endgame
— a ten-year plan, initiated in September 2001, to expand detention camps, at a
cost of $400 million in Fiscal Year 2007 alone. At the same time we have seen
the implementation of the plans outlined by Chardy in 1987: the warrantless
detentions that Oliver North had planned for in Rex 1984, the warrantless eavesdropping that is their logical
counterpart, and the militarization of the domestic United
States under a new military command, NORTHCOM.
Through NORTHCOM the U.S. Army now is engaged with local enforcement to
control America, in the same way that through CENTCOM it is engaged with
local enforcement to control
Afghanistan and Iraq. We learned that COG planning was
still active in 2007, when President Bush issued National Security Presidential
Directive 51 (NSPD 51). This, for the
sixth time, extended for one year the emergency proclaimed on September 14,
2001. It empowered the President to personally ensure “continuity of
government” in the event of any “catastrophic emergency.” He announced that
NSPD 51 contains “classified Continuity Annexes” which shall “be protected from
Under pressure from his 911truth constituents,
Congressman Peter DeFazio of the Homeland Security Committee twice requested to
see these Annexes, the second time in a letter signed by the Chair of his committee.
His request was denied. The National Emergencies Act, one of the post-Watergate
reforms that Vice-President Cheney so abhorred, specifies that: “Not later than six months after a national
emergency is declared, and not later than the end of each six-month period
thereafter that such emergency continues, each House of Congress shall meet to
consider a vote on a joint resolution to determine whether that emergency shall
be terminated” (50 U.S.C. 1622, 2002).
Yet in nine years Congress has not
once met to discuss the State of Emergency declared by George W. Bush
in response to 9/11, a State of Emergency that remains in effect
today. Appeals to the Congress to meet its responsibilities to review COG have
fallen on deaf ears. It is clear that the planning by Cheney, Rumsfeld and
others in the last two decades was not confined to an immediate response to
The 1000-page Patriot Act, dropped on Congress as promptly as the Tonkin
Gulf Resolution had been back in 1964, is still with us; Congress has never seriously
challenged it, and Obama quietly extended it on February 27 of this year. We should not forget that the Patriot Act
was only passed after lethal anthrax letters were mailed to two crucial
Democratic Senators – Senators Daschle and Leahy – who had initially
questioned the bill. After the anthrax letters, however, they withdrew their
initial opposition. Someone — we still do not know who – must have planned
those anthrax letters well in advance. This is a fact most Americans do not
want to think about.
Someone also must
have planned the unusual number of war games taking place on 9/11. COG planners
and FEMA had been involved in war games planning over the previous two decades;
and on 9/11 FEMA was again involved with other agencies in preparing for Operation
Tripod, a bioterrorism exercise in New York City. Someone also
must have planned the new more restrictive instructions, on June 1, 2001, determining that military interceptions of hijacked
aircraft had to be approved “at the highest levels of government” (i.e. the
President, Vice-President, or Secretary of Defense).
attributes this order to a JCS Memo of June 1, 2001, entitled “Aircraft Piracy
(Hijacking) and Destruction of Derelict Airborne Objects.” But the written
requirements had been less restrictive before June 1, 2001, and I am informed
that the change was quietly revoked the following December. In The Road to 9/11
I suggest the change in the JCS memo came from the National Preparedness Review
in which President Bush authorized Vice-President Cheney, together with FEMA,
“to tackle the… task of dealing with terrorist attacks.”
Not noticed by the press was the fact that
Cheney and FEMA had already been working on COG planning as a team throughout
the 1980s and 1990s. Weiner’s article persuaded authors James Mann and
James Bamford that Reagan’s COG plans had now been abandoned, because “there
was, it seemed, no longer any enemy in the world capable of . . . decapitating
however, only one phase of COG planning had been terminated, a Pentagon program
for response to a nuclear attack. Instead, according to author Andrew
Cockburn, a new target was found: Although
the exercises continued, still budgeted at over $200 million a year in
the Clinton era, the vanished Soviets were now replaced by terrorists.
. . . There were other changes, too. In earlier times the specialists selected
to run the “shadow government” had been drawn from across the political
spectrum, Democrats and Republicans alike.
But now, down in the bunkers,
Rumsfeld found himself in politically congenial company, the players’ roster
being filled almost exclusively with Republican hawks. . . .“You could say this was a secret
government-in-waiting. The Clinton administration was
extraordinarily inattentive, [they had] no idea what was going on.”
The Pentagon official’s description of a
“secret government-in-waiting” (which still included both Cheney and Rumsfeld)
is very close to the standard definition of a cabal, as a group of persons
secretly united to bring about a change or overthrow of government. In the
same era Cheney and Rumsfeld projected change also by their public lobbying,
through the Project for the New American Century, for a more
militant Middle East policy.
light of how COG was actually implemented in 2001, one can legitimately suspect
that, however interested this group had been in continuity of government under
Reagan, under Clinton the focus of Cheney’s and Rumsfeld’s COG
planning was now a change of government (Peter Dale Scott, 2010).

Abstract: USNORTHCOM has admitted that they are preparing military operations within the United States. This is the first time in history this has been done and they will be working with DHS, state and local law enforcement on U.S. soil. The focus of this operation will be in our own back yard. Northcom is planning on defending against enemy attacks and supporting civilian authorities with fighting an unconventional foe, all on US soil. NORTHCOM went on to say that the drill will be in the Gulf area. They anticipate no infrastructure and possible extreme weather conditions.
“Even more significant, this inspection marked the first time that any Air Force unit has been wartime validated in support of the security and defense of the United States of America. That’s huge,” Nelson said. “The survival of thousand Americans rests on this training”. The Intel Hub believes that their could be a mass evacuation of the Gulf. The chemicals that are being used on this oil spill could, by themselves cause a tremendous amount of various health problems.We will keep you posted.
This could be part of Operation Garden Plot. and possibly could be why there has been reports of hardened troops building up in the Gulf. BP is currently saying that the oil spill should be stopped by next week. One thing is for sure, the dispersant isn’t going anywhere in months much less weeks (The Intel Hub, 2010).
Title: Poll: Americans Trust Military, But Not Congress
Date: September 13, 2011
Source: ABC News
Abstract: Congress may be in the doghouse with the American public, but a new poll suggests that the broader government — especially the military — gets high marks for keeping the nation safe and secure.
What's more, nearly seven in 10 Americans are trying to make things better by volunteering, a sign that optimism survives in a nation riled by partisan policy fights and economic uncertainty.
"It's very healthy because it indicates that although we are annoyed, skeptical and have less trust than we'd like in our institutions, we are not hopeless," said David Eisner, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, which partnered on the poll with The Associated Press. "We believe that the bedrock values and principles that we built our society on are right."
The public's contempt for Congress exceeds that of other American institutions, including banks, major corporations and the media. The broader government's performance "making sure that our nation is safe from foreign and domestic threats" received an uptick in confidence from 53 percent a year ago to 72 percent now. And a growing number of people said the government is doing a good job of "making sure all Americans feel safe, secure and free," up from 54 percent in August 2010 to 63 percent now.
The military in particular earns the most respect of the survey, with 54 percent deeply confident in the institution.
But deep contempt for Congress and aspects of President Barack Obama's health care law remain among Americans tired of partisan standoffs over basic pocketbook issues. The Associated Press-National Constitution Center poll of 1,000 adults, conducted Aug. 18-22, found that 57 percent have little or no confidence in Congress, up from 49 percent last year.
So while Boise, Idaho, retiree Dale Shoemaker, 54, feels safer, he doesn't give the nation's political institutions credit.
"I think we're more secure. There are a lot of professional, talented people doing a tremendous job," Shoemaker, who used to consider himself a Republican but now is more of an independent. "But the leadership of the Congress and the Senate are not making decisions about what to do, and they're leaving people hanging."
It's notable news on the brink of an election year for Obama, the health care law's chief author and the one who made the call in May to take out terrorist chief Osama bin Laden. Congress, too, is taking note of its estimation in the eyes of the voting public as both parties gird for battle over control of the House and Senate.
No party profited politically from the standoff over the nation's finances much of the year, especially by the unseemly debt limit dispute that earned the nation a credit rating downgrade and sank approval ratings for all policymakers involved. The bickering continued even as the unemployment rate refused to drop much below 10 percent.
A poll last month found the infighting sank Congress' approval rating to 12 percent.
Congress and the broader government give Americans heartburn, with one central feature of Obama's signature health care overhaul standing out as an example. More than eight in 10 people surveyed — 82 percent — say the federal government should not have the power to require Americans to buy health care insurance. Politically important independents were more aligned with Republicans on the mandate question, with 87 percent who don't identify with one of the two major parties saying government should have no right to require insurance; 95 percent of Republicans agreed, according to the poll.
"I just think that people should have the right to buy health insurance, or not," said Daisy Mallory, 78, a retired factory worker from of La Grange, Ill., who says Medicare covers her health care costs. Obama, she said, may have misjudged public's opposition to health care mandates. "I think he understands it better now," she said.
Obama himself acknowledged that his party took a "shellacking" in the 2010 midterm elections, when Republicans made the health care law and the Democrats who muscled it through Congress their Issue No. 1 — and won enough seats to control the House. Obama has said he believes the Supreme Court will uphold the law's constitutionality, but Republicans continue to mention it as a key example of government overreach that they would repeal.
But after nine months in control of the House, Republicans haven't boosted the public's view of Congress.
In the AP-NCC poll, just 8 percent say they are confident in the people running Congress, 10 percent in the federal government. Majorities of Republicans and Democrats lack confidence in congressional leaders, with politically crucial independents showing the sharpest increase in distrust of Congress over the past year. That's up from 49 percent in 2010 to 62 percent now
Even so, most Americans feel safe and more have confidence in the government to keep it that way, the poll shows.
The uptick in approval for the government's handling of national security crosses party lines, but Republicans have shifted sharply. Last year, just 32 percent of Republicans gave the government positive reviews on keeping the nation safe; now, 61 percent of Republicans agree on that. And on making sure Americans feel "safe, secure and free," the same group has jumped from 33 percent who said the government is doing a "good job" to 54 percent now, the poll shows.
The urge to contribute through volunteerism remains strong, according to the poll. Nearly six in 10 Americans say the country needs more sense of community and people helping one another. Most — 69 percent — have volunteered in the past year. Eight in 10 said they have made a charitable donation of $25 or more during that time.The AP-National Constitution Center poll was conducted Aug. 18-22 by GfK Roper Public Affairs and Corporate Communications. It involved landline and cellular telephone interviews with 1,000 adults nationwide and has a sampling error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points (ABC News, 2011).
Title: FEMA Communication Takeover Test Scheduled For November 9
Date: October 18, 2011
Abstract: 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.
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.
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 (Infowars, 2011).
4. REX 84
TRUTHER.ORG: "Readiness Exercise 1984", is a contingency plan developed by the United States federal government to suspend the United States Constitution, declare martial law, place military commanders in charge of state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens who were deemed to be "national security threats". This plan will be enacted in the event that the President of the United States declares a "State of Domestic National Emergency".
Title: U.S. Federal Governmen's "Readiness Exercise 1984"
Date: 1967 – Present
Abstract: Short for Readiness Exercise 1984, is a contingency plan developed by the United States federal government to suspend the United States Constitution, declare martial law, place military commanders in charge of state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens who were deemed to be "national security threats", in the event that the President declared a "State of Domestic National Emergency".
The plan stated that events that might cause such a declaration would be widespread U.S. opposition to a U.S. military invasion abroad, such as if the United States were to directly invade Central America.
To combat what the government perceived as "subversive activities", the plan also authorized the military to direct ordered movements of civilian populations at state and regional levels. Rex-84 was written by Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North, who was both the NSC White House Aide and NSC liaison to FEMA, and John Brinkerhoff, the deputy director of "national preparedness" programs for FEMA.
They patterned the plan on a 1970 report written by FEMA chief Louis Giuffrida, at the Army War College, which proposed the detention of up to 21 million "American Negroes", if there were a black militant uprising in the United States.
Existence of a master military contingency plan (of which REX-84 was a part), "Garden Plot" and a similar earlier exercise, "Lantern Spike" were originally revealed by journalist Ron Ridenhour, who summarized his findings in "Garden Plot and the New Action Army." Rex 84 was publicly mentioned during the Iran-Contra Hearings in 1987.
Exercises similar to Rex 84 happen regularly. For example, from 1967 to 1971 the FBI kept a list of over 100,000 persons to be rounded up as subversive, dubbed the "ADEX" list. The basic facts about Rex 84 and other contingency planning readiness exercises—and the potential threat they pose to civil liberties if fully implemented in a real operation—are taken seriously by scholars and civil libertarians (Wikipedia, 2010).
5. VIOLENT RADICALIZATION AND HOMEGROWN TERROR ACT
TRUTHER.ORG: Senate bill "S-1959" permits the U.S. government to classify many types of venerated American political activity, such as civil disobedience, as terrorism. This law will be used to round-up any person that chooses to disobey orders, regardless of their constitutionality.
Title: U.S. Congress' Violent Radicalization And Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act Of 2007
Date: April 19, 2007
Abstract: A bill sponsored by Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA) in the 110th United States Congress. Its stated purpose is to deal with "homegrown terrorism and violent radicalization” by establishing a national commission, establishing a center for study, and cooperating with other nations.
Amended the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to add provisions concerning the prevention of homegrown terrorism (terrorism by individuals born, raised, or based and operating primarily in the United States).
Directed the Secretary of Homeland Security to:
Establish or designate a university-based Center of Excellence for the Study of Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism in the United States;
Conduct a survey of methodologies implemented by foreign nations to prevent radicalization and homegrown terrorism.
Prohibited the Department of Homeland Security's efforts to prevent ideologically-based violence and homegrown terrorism from violating the constitutional and civil rights, and civil liberties, of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents.
Homegrown Terrorism: The use, planned use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual born, raised, or based and operating primarily within the United States or any possession of the United States to intimidate or coerce the United States government, the civilian population of the United States, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.
Ideologically Based Violence: The use, planned use, or threatened use of force or violence by a group or individual to promote the group or individual's political, religious, or social beliefs (Wikipedia, 2010).
6. PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE 51
TRUTHER.ORG: The "White House National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 51" allows the President to execute procedures for continuity of the federal government in the event of a "catastrophic emergency". Such an emergency is construed as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions.” Should Obama be assassinated, there is no doubt that new president Joe Biden will enact this law.

The unclassified portion of the directive was posted on the White House website on May 9, 2007, without any further announcement or press briefings (Wikipedia, 2010).
7. ENEMY BELLIGERENT ACT
TRUTHER.ORG: Senate bill "S-3081" allows for the infinite detention of any person, including American citizens, who is deemed to be an unprivileged enemy belligerent without criminal charges or trial for the duration of hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners in which the individual has engaged or which the individual has purposely and materially supported. This law basically allows any person at any time to be arrested and held without bail or trial for any amount of time deemed necessary by the U.S. government. This law paves the way for mass arrests and the wholesale extermination that is sure to follow.
Title: The Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, And Prosecution Act Of 2010
Date: May 4, 2007
Abstract: The Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010 (S. 3081) is a bill introduced by United States Senator John McCain, sponsored by Joe Lieberman and eight other Republican Senators. Its counterpart in the House is H.R. 4892, introduced by Howard McKeon (R-CA). According to the bill's official summary, the bill requires that any person who is arrested on suspicion of terrorism against the Unites States or its coalition partners be placed in military custody for the purposes of initial interrogation and determination of status as an "unprivileged enemy belligerent". Such determination is to be made within 48 hours.
The bill proceeds to define an "unprivileged enemy belligerent" as an individual who:
- Has engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners;
- Has purposely and materially supported hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners; or
- Was a part of al Qaeda at the time of capture.
It further prohibits the use of Department of Justice (DOJ) appropriated funds to prosecute an unprivileged enemy belligerent in an Article III court. Finally, the bill allows for the detention of a person who is deemed to be an unprivileged enemy belligerent without criminal charges or trial for the duration of hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners in which the individual has engaged or which the individual has purposely and materially supported. S.3081 was co-sponsored in the Senate by: Scott Brown [MA], Saxby Chambliss [GA], James Inhofe [OK], George LeMieux [FL], Jeff Sessions [AL], John Thune [SD], David Vitter [LA], and Roger Wicker [MS] (Wikipedia, 2010).
8. HUMAN CATTLE CARS
TRUTHER.ORG: The U.S. government has contracted with several companies, namely KBR, to build thousands of railcars for human transportation which are reportedly equipped with shackles to transport political detainees. Unfortunately, history repeats and this is the exact same scenario that was used in Nazi Germany to transport victims to the gas chambers. According to diplomat and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is part of a Homeland Security plan titled "Operation ENDGAME", which sets as its goal the removal of "all removable aliens" and "potential terrorists" from the United States.
Title: Rule By Fear Or Rule By Law?
Date: February 4, 2008
Source: San Francisco Chronicle
Abstract: 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." 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." Fraud-busters such as Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Los Angeles, have complained about these contracts, saying that more taxpayer dollars should not go to taxpayer-gouging Halliburton.
But the real question is: What kind of "new programs" require the construction and refurbishment of detention facilities in nearly every state of the union with the capacity to house perhaps millions of people? Sect. 1042 of the 2007 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), "Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies," gives the executive the power to invoke martial law.
For the first time in more than a century, the president is now authorized to use the military in response to "a natural disaster, a disease outbreak, a terrorist attack or any other condition in which the President determines that domestic violence has occurred to the extent that state officials cannot maintain public order." The Military Commissions Act of 2006, rammed through Congress just before the 2006 midterm elections, allows for the indefinite imprisonment of anyone who donates money to a charity that turns up on a list of "terrorist" organizations, or who speaks out against the government's policies.
The law calls for secret trials for citizens and noncitizens alike. Also in 2007, the White House quietly issued National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD-51), to ensure "continuity of government" in the event of what the document vaguely calls a "catastrophic emergency." Should the president determine that such an emergency has occurred, he and he alone is empowered to do whatever he deems necessary to ensure "continuity of government."
This could include everything from canceling elections to suspending the Constitution to launching a nuclear attack. Congress has yet to hold a single hearing on NSPD-51. U.S. Rep. Jane Harman, D-Venice (Los Angeles County) has come up with a new way to expand the domestic "war on terror." Her Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 (HR1955), which passed the House by the lopsided vote of 404-6, would set up a commission to "examine and report upon the facts and causes" of so-called violent radicalism and extremist ideology, then make legislative recommendations on combating it.
According to commentary in the Baltimore Sun, Rep. Harman and her colleagues from both sides of the aisle believe the country faces a native brand of terrorism, and needs a commission with sweeping investigative power to combat it. A clue as to where Harman's commission might be aiming is the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, a law that labels those who "engage in sit-ins, civil disobedience, trespass, or any other crime in the name of animal rights" as terrorists. Other groups in the crosshairs could be anti-abortion protesters, anti-tax agitators, immigration activists, environmentalists, peace demonstrators, Second Amendment rights supporters ... the list goes on and on.
According to author Naomi Wolf, the National Counterterrorism Center holds the names of roughly 775,000 "terror suspects" with the number increasing by 20,000 per month. What could the government be contemplating that leads it to make contingency plans to detain without recourse millions of its own citizens? The Constitution does not allow the executive to have unchecked power under any circumstances. The people must not allow the president to use the war on terrorism to rule by fear instead of by law (San Francisco Chronicle, 2008).
9. MASS GRAVES
TRUTHER.ORG: Mass coffins have been appearing in strategic locations throughout the Unites States over the last couple of years. While U.S. government officials explain that the coffins are for catastrophic emergencies, there is a growing suspicion amongst Americans that something far more sinister may be going on. Whatever catastrophic event is about to transpire, the U.S. federal government will be able to bury hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people in an extremely short amount of time.
Title: Military Industrial Complex Prepares Mass Graves For U.S. Citizens
Date: March 25, 2009
Abstract: A usually quiet U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Cemetery, has been unusually active lately. The National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona is a beautiful 225 acre facility located in Phoenix.
The cleanliness of the heavy equipment operation and the large
perfect cuts of earth is im pressive. These Massive concrete boxes are
transported from a nearby storage yard on various privately owned
flatbed semi-trucks, then unloaded and put into place a half mile away
at the actual mass grave site. They are installed tight together side by
side with no space in between.
An interview was conducted between my friend and a truck driver
involved in this operation. After beating around the bush for ten
minutes, the driver admitted “ I got paid a whole lot of money to speak
good english.” Take it for what it’s worth but that sounds suspect. The
truck driver also admitted “Each burial vault holds four caskets.”
I took note that if caskets were not used you could fit 40 bodies or more in each one.
So if these were to hold four troops each and the truck driver did know what he was talking about; this would mean that there are plans in advance for over 4000 U.S. soldiers deaths.
If these are not to contain caskets and only bodies are inserted there could be room for over 40,000 civilians bodies (Infowars, 2009).
Title: Is FEMA & DHS Preparing For Mass Graves And Martial Law Near Chicago?
Date: February 13, 2009
Abstract: An Indiana county municipal official in the vicinity of Chicago reveals the contents of his meetings with FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security. The initial requests seem reasonable enough when FEMA asks the county officials to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan to deal with flooding, fires, high winds and tornadoes.
“We want to know every important thing in this county. We want
to know where police departments are. Where weapons are stored.
Hazardous material. Where can we land a helicopter. Where are the
airports. How big a plane can you land at the airport. Where are all
the bridges. Where are all the power stations. Where are all the
generating stations.Where are all the substations. They literally
wanted to know where everything was. I’m sitting there thinking man if
there was ever martial law. This kind of information is exactly the
kind of stuff they are going to want. We’re just laying it all out for
them right there."
During the legally mandated meetings held with FEMA and DHS different disaster scenarios were reveled to county officials:
In late December 2008 municipal officials were invited to
Indianapolis for a briefing on the state of Indiana. There were told if
industry were to collapse for example GM going bankrupt resulting in
mass unemployment a depression would soon follow and municipalities
could expect to loose 40% of their funds.
Every county in the nation would be required to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan.
The county should prepare a plan to vaccinate the entire population within 48 hours and practice the plan several times.
FEMA inquired to where mass graves could be placed in the county and would they accept bodies from elsewhere.
The sheriff’s department via the state sheriff association was told that no .223 ammunition rounds would be available as the military would be purchasing all stocks.
The county was asked to make plans for “hardening” of police and fire stations, putting in hardened bunker type buildings around town.
The county was asked to make plans for the possibility of up to 400,000 refugees from Chicago (Infowars, 2009).
