What you are about to read may seem too far off the wall to be taken seriously. But, after you have examined the evidence, you will see that our problem is not that this story is off the wall; it is off the radar. The public is unaware that the federal government is preparing to ratchet up its control system. If you agree, then please forward this report to people you trust and who will see its relevance.
Alex Jones has published an article on the FEMA camps. He says that a major private contracting agency hired by the government has issued a call for prospective employees of these camps.
Before you dismiss this as crazy, do this: look at the map Jones has posted. The document could be a fake, but if it is, it is a very convincing fake. You had better hope it’s a fake. It’s here.
For those of you who have read the document, you are now ready for what I have to say. (The rest of you probably are not.)
In 1977, after Ron Paul had left office and I was no longer on the government’s payroll, I first wrote about FEMA as the key agency for administering the federal government’s emergency controls. This is not a new story.
The building of internment camps is an even older story. There were the camps for American-born Japanese in World War II. There were also the little-known kidnapping centers in Texas that were set up for Japanese citizens of Latin American countries who were arrested by their governments and shipped to the U.S. on request of the U.S. government. I wrote about this exactly 10 years ago this week. The article is here.
In 1958, I read my first book on the government’s plans for non-wartime camps: Lewis Albert Alesen, Mental Robots (Caxton, 1957). But, as far as I know, nothing came of these plans. That was before FEMA.
As to how many people can physically be put into these FEMA camps, I do not know. Or who will be put there. Or on what legal basis. But the fact that any of these camps exist at all is an outrage. It points to a ratcheting up of selective tyranny. “When you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail.”
In his video on this, Jones says they could house a million people. I do not think this will happen. Here is why. The cost of arresting, processing, moving , feeding, and policing a million people would be astronomical: a huge drain on the already stretched federal budget. A federal bureaucracy that can barely round up and send back 400,000 illegal aliens a year out of a minimum of 11 million already here is incapable of rounding up and feeding for life a million American citizens.
I have done evangelism in a maximum security prison, one of five in east Texas (Tennessee Colony) located on a tract of 21,000 acres. It takes a complex, very expensive prison system to house about 17,000 inmates. It took three decades to build these prisons, beginning in 1965.
He also thinks the camps are a prelude to slave labor. I do not. Why not? Because slave labor is inefficient and unprofitable. Slave labor has produced North Korea, not South Korea. It produced Mao’s China, not Wen’s China. The Powers That Be are milking the existing system efficiently, and have been for over a century. They understand this rule: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Still, I do not discount the fact that some camps have been built. We need more evidence about how many, how large, and for what purposes. Jones needs more informants. Jones has some. They send him documents. He reports on what he has been sent.
I do not think Jones is a scam artist. I am not big on his use of bull horns, but that’s a matter of aesthetics. I also think it takes a lot of time to connect the enormous number of dots that are out there. He is under a daily video production schedule that does not allow him and his staff enough time to connect as many dots as we need to have connected — tightly connected. But at least he points to the dots he is tracking. He calls on people to do their homework. We should take these dots seriously. It is our job to monitor at least some of these dots. The Internet makes this possible.
The camps are real. We do not know how many there are. They are now about to be staffed. These are dots worth monitoring.
Is this all nutty? Consider this. The Senate has passed a bill with a veto-proof majority that will end Americans’ Constitutional protection from arbitrary arrest, and also will end the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act against the use of the armed forces as police. We are getting very close to the next ratchet up of bureaucratic tyranny.
I don’t think the government can pull this off. It is running out of economic resources. The deficit is too big. Also, a resistance movement is growing. The Tea Party is real. But I do think the legal and physical infrastructure to pull it off is being laid.
