* USA concentration camps: here’s the documentation *

2007-12-22

Richard Moore

Friends,

This article should be no surprise to anyone who has been watching the unfolding
program of the neocon regime, and noticing how it has copied its script directly
from the Third Reich. We've had our 911 Reichstag Fire, the Patriot / Enabling 
Act, a blamed minority (Muslims replacing the Jews), Lebensraum Blitzkrieg 
invasions of Iraq & Afghanistan, power being seized by the Executive, arbitrary 
detention and torture of civilians, and our own prototype concentration camp at 
Guantanamo.

All of this in the name of a non-existent terrorist threat. Was there ever any 
doubt what all of this has been leading to? Did anyone doubt that sooner or 
later they'd need to start rounding up dissidents? And with our prisons 
overflowing already, isn't it clear that new detention centers would need to be 
constructed? Is it mere irony that President Bush is the grandson of Prescott 
Bush, who was the Nazi's money-manger in America before and during World War II,
and whose factories in Poland used slave labor from Auschwitz?

As the author points out, the same financial elites who funded Hitler's rise 
have now been funding the neocon's programs. But there is one significant 
difference between how fascism is unfolding in America, and how it unfolded in 
Germany. In Germany the program's champion was an incredibly charismatic and 
crazed leader, who never did anything by halves. Once Hitler got into power, he 
proceeded directly to full fascism without any pause.

In America, on the other hand, there is no such charismatic leader, no one who 
is able to whip the American people into a frenzy in support of the fascist 
agenda. Instead we are seeing a more coldly calculated sequence of steps, kept 
largely behind the scenes, proceeding methodically and incrementally toward the 
same objectives that Hitler pursued in one extended adrenalin rush.

For that and other reasons I don't expect these new detention facilities to go 
into operation any time soon. The cancelling of the Iran invasion, which was 
obviously not the act of the neocons themselves, indicates that the neocons have
been muzzled by their backers -- the folks who own and manage America, and who 
earlier funded Hitler. The PNAC expansionist agenda has been put on hold, and 
most likely the roundup agenda has been put on hold as well. Hillary or whoever 
will come into the White House, close down Guantanamo, and everyone will think 
the evils are behind us.

But when the 'right time' comes, and these all-powerful financial elites decide 
its time to go again on the offensive, both internationally and domestically, 
all those detention centers will be ready and waiting. At the moment America is 
beginning to wake up and notice how we are moving toward fascism, and that's 
probably the reason the program is being put on hold. I can only hope and pray 
that those who have been waking up do not go back to sleep when some 
pseudo-liberal slick-talker like Hillary takes up puppet duty in the White 
House. Perhaps we need a rallying cry. How about, "Remember Guantanamo!"

Now We Know Why There's A Press Blackout On S 1959 - It's Called "ENDGAME" By 
DHS

By William Cormier

Today I received a tip by a fellow writer that KBR (Kellogg Brown & Root, Inc.),
a subsidiary of Halliburton, was behind the creation of Senate Bill S 1959, 
otherwise known as the ³Thought Crime Prevention Bill², or by its legal 
designation, the ³Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act 
of 2007.² I wasn¹t able to make a solid connection that indicated KBR was 
actually behind the introduction of S 1959, but what I did find demonstrates we 
are likely approaching the final days when Homeland Security (sic) implements 
their ³final solution² which DHS has labeled as ³EndGame.²

This is what I found, researched it thoroughly - and unfortunately, unless ³the 
people² react in the millions, life in these United States is about to change 
forever, and apparently, it could also end for thousands, if not millions of 
Americans:

____________________
Halliburton Confirms Concentration Camps Already Constructed

On February 17, 2006, in a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations, Defense 
Secretary Donald Rumsfeld spoke of the harm being done to the country¹s 
security, not just by the enemy, but also by what he called ³news informers² who
needed to be combated in ³a contest of wills.²

In 2002 Attorney General John Ashcroft announced his desire to see camps for 
U.S. citizens deemed to be ³enemy combatants.²

A Defense Department document, entitled the ³Strategy for Homeland Defense and 
Civil Support,² has set out a military strategy against terrorism that envisions
an ³active, layered defense² both inside and outside U.S. territory. In the 
document, the Pentagon pledges to ³transform U.S. military forces to execute 
homeland defense missions in the . . . U.S. homeland.² The strategy calls for 
increased military reconnaissance and surveillance

The Washington Post reported on February 15, 2006 that the National 
Counterterrorism Center¹s (NCTC) central repository holds the names of 325,000 
terrorist suspects, a fourfold increase since fall of 2003. A Pentagon official 
said the Counterintelligence Field Activity¹s TALON program has amassed files on
antiwar protesters.

Shortly after Bush orchestrated 9/11, he issued ³Military Order Number One², 
which empowered him to detain any noncitizen as an international terrorist or 
enemy combatant. Today that order extends to U.S. citizens as well.

Halliburton subsidiary ³KBR has been awarded a contract announced by the 
Department of Homeland Security¹s United States Immigration and Customs 
Enforcement (ICE) component. The Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity 
contingency contract is to support ICE facilities and has a maximum total value 
of $385 million over a five year term. The contract provides for establishing 
temporary detention and processing capabilities in the event of an emergency 
influx of immigrants into the United States, or to support the rapid development
of new programs². See Source Document on Halliburton Site or page 1, & 5 below

HOUSTON, Texas ­ Halliburton (NYSE:HAL) announced that income from continuing 
operations for the full year of 2005 was $2.4 billion. Consolidated revenue in 
the fourth quarter of 2005 was $5.8 billion. Consolidated operating income was 
$779 million in the fourth quarter of 2005. This increase was largely 
attributable to higher activity in the Energy Services Group (ESG), partially 
offset by lower revenue in KBR primarily on government services projects in the 
Middle East. Annual operating income more than tripled to $2.7 billion in 2005.

Why exactly are prisons being built for ³the rapid development of new programs².
Halliburton¹s company site confirms that the government is engaged in a massive 
construction and preparation exercise to build concentration camps and prisoner 
processing facilities in the United States. This is particularity astonishing 
and disturbing considering that the U.S. already incarcerates more orders of 
magnitude more people than any other nation, about on-par with U.S.S.R. at the 
height of Stalin¹s era.

The contract of the Halliburton subsidiary KBR to build immigrant detention 
facilities is part of a longer-term Homeland Security plan titled

  €  ENDGAME

, which sets as its goal the removal of ³all removable aliens² and ³potential 
terrorists.² In the 1980s Richard Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld discussed similar 
emergency detention powers as part of a super-secret program of planning for 
what was euphemistically called ³Continuity of Government² (COG). These men 
planned for suspension of the Constitution, not just after nuclear attack, but 
for any ³national security emergency,² which they vaguely defined in Executive 
Order 12656 of 1988.

Over 800 concentration camps are reported throughout the United States, all 
fully operational and ready to receive U.S. Prisoners who disagree with the 
government. The concentration camps are all staffed and manned by full-time 
guards, however, they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA 
(Federal Emergency Management Agency) when Martial Law is implemented in the 
United States (at the stroke of a Presidential pen and the Attorney General¹s 
signature on a warrant).

The camps have railroad facilities as well as roads leading to and from the 
detention facilities, many have airports. Like Auschwitz, some of the camps have
airtight buildings and furnaces. The majority of the camps can each house a 
population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the largest of these facilities is 
just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive ³mental 
health² facility and can hold approximately 2 million people.

Following the Halliburton subsidiary KBR (formerly Kellogg Brown and Root) 
announcement on Jan. 24 that it had been awarded a $385 million contingency 
contract by the Department of Homeland Security to build detention camps, two 
weeks later, on Feb. 6, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff announced 
that the Fiscal Year 2007 federal budget would allocate over $400 million to add
6,700 additional detention beds (an increase of 32 percent over 2006. What is 
interesting in the Homeland Security plan is that each concrete prison bed costs
$60,000 per bed! Observing these concentration camps and general jail and prison
facilities throughout the U.S., the Homeland Security plan is clearly buffered 
to build significantly more than 6,700 additional beds.

The Homeland Security $400 million allocation is more than a four-fold increase 
over the FY 2006 budget, which provided $90 million for the same purpose. Both 
the contract and the budget allocation are in partial fulfillment of an 
ambitious 10-year Homeland Security strategic plan, code-named ENDGAME, 
authorized in 2003. According to a 49-page Homeland Security document on the 
plan, ENDGAME expands ³a mission first articulated in the Alien and Sedition 
Acts of 1798.² Its goal is the capability to ³remove all removable aliens,² 
including ³illegal economic migrants, aliens who have committed criminal acts, 
asylum-seekers (required to be retained by law) or potential terrorists.² The 
government¹s definition of an enemy combatant covers almost any individual who 
promotes the rudimentary rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

Readiness Exercise 1984 - Rex 84

Rex 84 is a United States federal government program to test their ability to 
detain large numbers of American citizens. Exercises similar to Rex 84 happen 
periodically. From 1967 to 1971 the FBI kept a list of persons to be rounded up 
as subversive, dubbed the ³ADEX² list.

Texas Congressman Henry Gonzales revealed many years ago plans of Rex 84 which 
former colonel Ollie North helped design. The late Representative Jack Brooks 
also of Texas brought this concentration camp and internment program as well as 
the Continuity of Government Program to light during the Iran Contra hearing. 
The chairman refused to let North even talk about them in open hearings under 
³National Security.² Mr. Gonzales stated these camps and plans were for the 
detention of AMERICANS, especially those who refused to surrender their weapons.

The Rex-84 Alpha Explan (Readiness Exercise 1984, Exercise Plan), indicates that
FEMA in association with 34 other federal civil departments and agencies 
conducted a civil readiness exercise during April 5-13, 1984. It was conducted 
in coordination and simultaneously with a Joint Chiefs exercise, Night Train 84,
a worldwide military command post exercise (including Continental U.S. Forces or
CONUS) based on multi-emergency scenarios operating both abroad and at home. In 
the combined exercise, Rex-84 Bravo, FEMA and DOD led the other federal agencies
and departments, including the Central Intelligence Agency, the Secret Service, 
the Treasury, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Veterans 
Administration through a gaming exercise to test military assistance in civil 
defense.

Apparently all nature contingencies are being taken care of. Photographers 
snapped pictures of an estimated half a million plastic coffins:

These plans are similar in many ways to Hitler and Stalin¹s plans who all have 
generally the same financial backers.

Clearly Presidential Executive Orders primarily from FDR and Bush Jr., which are
blatantly treasonous in form, have been laying the groundwork for this Fascist 
Socialist takeover: Executive Order Treason - - MUCH MORE

I stated that I believed we are in the final stages of this plan based on the 
success of ³Operation Falcon² and being aware the final readiness test is due 
soon in the western United States; further, just today, I noted that DHS is 
finalizing plans to use spy satellites on the American public:

DHS finalizing plans for domestic spy satellite program

Congress has not been updated since civil liberties concerns delayed satellite 
spying

A plan to dramatically widen US law enforcement agencies¹ access to data from 
powerful spy satellites is moving toward implementation, as Department of 
Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff expects to finalize a charter for 
the program this week, according to a new report.

Chertoff insists the scheme to turn spy satellites ‹ that were originally 
designed for foreign surveillance ‹ on Americans is legal, although a House 
committee that would approve the program has not been updated on the program for
three months.

³We still haven¹t seen the legal framework we requested or the standard 
operation procedures on how the NAO will actually be run,² House Homeland 
Security Chairman Bennie G. Thompson tells the Wall Street Journal. Thompson was
referring to the National Applications Office ‹ a new DHS subset that would 
coordinate access to spy-satellite data for non-military domestic agencies, 
including law enforcement.

Civil liberties concerns delayed the program after lawmakers and outside 
activists wondered how the program would be structured to protect Americans from
unconstitutional surveillance from the powerful satellites, which can see 
through cloud cover, trees and even concrete buildings. MORE

I don¹t have a lot of commentary to offer on this issue, but it¹s obvious that 
KBR and Halliburton would make hundreds of millions of dollars, if not billions 
operating these so-called ³detention facilities if they were filled to capacity 
by the plethora of services they would have to offer, i.e., meals, medical 
attention (if that¹s included), extra security guards, and a host of cottage 
industries that would spring-up to supplement the imprisonment of hundreds of 
thousands, if not millions of American citizens whose only crime was to demand 
that Bush and Cheney adhere to our constitution and the rule of law.

If you think your voice and participation isn¹t needed to fight S 1959, think 
again, and please visit the site where I found this information. This is not a 
³conspiracy Theory² but is based on factual evidence, and there¹s a lot more 
when you visit the ³Liberty For Life Association.²

It¹s your life and our country - and now it looks like it¹s time to pour on the 
pressure, and we must join together in solidarity to fight what may be the end 
of freedom in America. As was stated on the page where I found this information:

This is for real! - Wake Up America!

Authors Bio: I am nothing more than a patriotic American that is doing whatever 
I can to further the cause of democracy, the rule of law, and am absolutely 
outraged on how the Bush administration is defying our Congress, the 
Constitution, and the Bill of Rights! Footnote: I write in a style that I 
believe is appropriate in today¹s world where we can¹t trust the Mainstream News
Media, and rather than concentrating on one article alone, which may or may not 
receive the exposure and emphasis it should, I prefer to meld several relevant 
stories together, that each taken alone may not expose the entire situation, but
when taken-in as a whole, tend to give the reader a better understanding of the 
subject. One article or story alone does not represent the ³Big Picture² - but 
when several are effectively tied-together it often reveals a trend or broader 
view of the subject matter that is important to completely understand any given 
situation. http://justanothercoverup.com/
