It should be obvious by now to anyone who has been paying attention that the government is planning on declaring Martial Law. Over the last 20 years the laws and infrastructure for a coming tyrannical American police state have been implemented, and the plans for Martial Law are now ready to be acted upon. They are merely waiting for the “right major crisis” to happen, to quote globalist banker David Rockefeller.

The plans to detain large numbers of American citizens during a national emergency dates back over 30 years. Readiness Exercise 1984 (Rex 84) established an undisclosed number of concentration camps throughout the U.S. The original plan involved rounding up illegal aliens if a mass exodus of Mexicans crossed the border, but it was soon modified to include incarceration American citizens as well. Rex 84 called for many military bases to be closed down and secretly be turned into prisons. More than 97 military installations inside the U.S. were closed in 1988, 1991, 1993, 1995 and 2005. Most of these were converted into FEMA concentration camps.

The existence of Rex 84 was first revealed in 1987 during the Iran-Contra Hearings, and was also reported by the Miami Herald in July 1987. And the declassified documents, totaling over 1,000 pages, have subsequently been posted on the internet, so the plan is well documented.

Operation Cable Splicer and Operation Garden Plot are two sub-programs of Rex 84. Cable Splicer is the program that allows the government to takeover state and local governments, while Garden Plot is the program to control the population. FEMA is the agency that was authorized to head up all operations. Presidential Executive Orders also are part of the legal framework for this plan.

Years later, in October 2001, the passage of the USA Patriot Act dramatically revved up the march toward Martial Law. Next, the Domestic Security Enhancement Act of 2003, also known as the USA Patriot Act II, was passed into law. It was a mirror image of the powers Adolf Hitler was given after the Reichstag fire. While the first Patriot Act gutted the First, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Seventh, and Tenth Amendments, the second Patriot Act reorganized the entire Federal government as well as many areas of state government under the dictatorial control of the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA.

Next, the Military Commissions Act of 2006 slammed another nail into America’s coffin. This tyrannical law officially suspended habeas corpus, allowing the president to declare any American an “enemy combatant” and deprive them of their rights to seek legal or judicial relief from unlawful imprisonment. The government now has the legal authority to secretly abduct suspected terrorists in the name of the war on terror. There is nothing in this detainee legislation that protects American citizens from being kidnapped by their own government.

Another frightening piece of legislation, the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007, authorizes the government to deploy the U.S. military against American dissidents after the next big national emergency. This law destroys the protections of the Posse Comitatus Act (which prevented the military from being used for domestic law enforcement) and re-wrote the Insurrection Act.  This bill allows the president to declare a public emergency and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities.

And the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 allows the government to classify many types of esteemed, legal political activity as terrorism. This law will be used to round-up any person that chooses to engage in protest or civil disobedience, regardless of whether or not the act is constitutional.

The next piece of tyrannical legislation, the Presidential Decision Directive 51 (officially called the National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive) was signed in May 2007. It declares that in the event of a "catastrophic event” the president can take total control over the government and the country, bypassing all other levels of government at the state, federal, local, territorial, and tribal levels, and thus ensuring total unprecedented dictatorial power.

This PDD places the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in charge of domestic security. It was signed without the approval or oversight of Congress and supersedes the 1976 National Emergency Act which allowed for Congressional oversight over presidential emergency powers.

PDD51 allows the president to declare a national emergency on his own and Congress has no power to review or cancel it. This directive is a clear cut violation of the Constitution in that the three branches of government are supposed to be separate and equal, with no single branch superseding the others. That could explain why the signing of this Directive was not covered by the mainstream media nor discussed with the U.S. Congress. It was just quietly slipped into law allowing the president to act like a dictator. Interestingly, the 1976 National Emergencies Act is not even mentioned in the text of PDD51.

Then the National Emergency Centers Establishment Act was passed by into law in January 2009. This bill mandates that the Department of Homeland Security establish a network of FEMA camps (Guantanamo-style concentration camps) at undisclosed locations to incarcerate citizens in the event of a national emergency or economic collapse. The bill specifically authorizes DHS to use existing active and closed military bases around the country. Closed prisons were also converted into FEMA camps.

And it has been widely rumored that schools, sports stadiums, shopping malls, and large box stores like WalMart will be used as processing centers for FEMA camp prisoners. Professional sports leagues including the NFL, the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League have all entered into agreements with DHS to allow their stadiums to be used as holding centers. And Simon Properties, who owns many of the largest malls in America, signed a deal with DHS which allows their malls to likewise be used as detention facilities.

In order to have concentration camps in American, someone has to build them. Even though many secret FEMA camps had already been built using black budget money, in 2006 Kellogg Brown and Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton, was awarded $385 million to build more detention facilities on American soil. Although, for the most part, the government and Halliburton have kept the locations of these facilities secret to the public.

FEMA did, however, release information about one of these new camps. Camp Alpha, described by FEMA as a “political realignment facility,” was built on 500 acres of Federal land in southwest Arizona near the Chiricahua National Park. According to FEMA the camp can hold over 10,000 Americans. The FEMA press release stated that they plan on having 16 such facilities up and running before the 2016 election.

Camp Alpha could be your new home if you live in the greater Phoenix area.

These FEMA camps will be used to incarcerate anyone who the government views as a threat, including peaceful political dissidents. So it’s no coincidence that in April 2009 - just 3 months after the passage of the National Emergency Centers Establishment Act - DHS released a report on rightwing extremism called, Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment. This report warned of possible violence being perpetrated by Americans who are concerned about abortion, illegal immigration, future restrictions on firearms and the loss of U.S. sovereignty. Returning veterans who possess combat skills were specifically targeted.

That same year, DHS launched Operation Vigilant Eagle, which is a covert plan to surveil military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, as they are now considered as potential domestic terrorists because they might be “disgruntled, disillusioned or suffering from the psychological effects of war.”

In February 2009 a secret report was leaked out. The Modern Militia Movement Report (MIAC report) was distributed by the Missouri Information Analysis Center. The MIAC report classifies supporters of Ron Paul as “militia influenced terrorists” and it advises the Missouri State Police to be on the lookout for bumper stickers and other paraphernalia about the Constitution, the Campaign for Liberty, and the Libertarian Party. The MIAC report categorizes members of the patriot movement and other political organizations, along with anti-abortion activists, those opposed to illegal immigration, and income tax resistance as domestic terrorists. Were the FEMA camps built for these types of individuals?

The MIAC report is similar to a brochure that was distributed by the Phoenix FBI to all Arizona law enforcement agencies. This document explicitly designates “defenders of the Constitution” as “right-wing extremists.” So Arizona police have been brainwashed into believing this stuff – even more reason to have a good escape plan if you are living anywhere near the megacity of Phoenix.

Then in December 2011, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) was passed which authorizes the use of the Armed Forces in major public emergencies, thus officially ending what was left of the Posse Comitatus Act. 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 NDAA also officially ended the Writ of Habeas Corpus, which dates back to the Magna Carta, and was enshrined by the founders in our Constitution. The government can now seize American citizens, without a warrant, without probable cause, and without even charging them with a crime, calling them “enemy combatants” and incarcerate them indefinitely in a military prison without the right to an attorney or a trial by a jury of their peers.

What could the government be expecting that leads them to make contingency plans to detain without recourse millions of its own citizens? They know the financial collapse of America is inevitable. And they know that many patriotic Americans won’t go along with Martial Law and will take up arms against the government.  

Then there is the Pentagon's Civilian Inmate Labor Program. This program "provides Army policy and guidance for establishing civilian inmate labor programs and civilian prison camps on Army installations."

And a U.S. Army document entitled, FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations, was originally released as a classified document to the Department of Defense in February 2010, but was later leaked out on-line. This military training manual outlines policies for processing detainees into internment camps.

The truth is that there are now hundreds of FEMA camps hidden throughout America. The existence of these concentration camps were proven to be real on Jesse Ventura’s Conspiracy Theory TV show. The episode was pulled by Homeland Security after just one airing, but can still be viewed on Youtube. Even CBS News reported that FEMA camps are authentic as they were used to house victims of hurricane Sandy.

Sadly, many, if not most unprepared Americans who survive the first wave of the financial collapse will actually be standing on the street corners, suitcases in hand, waiting for a FEMA bus to pick them up and haul them off to a concentration camp, for their safety of course.

FEMA camps dot America from sea to shining sea.

If it is true that there are this many undisclosed FEMA camps, it raises many questions. Why are there so many, and why are they being kept secret? Who are they intended for? Illegal aliens? People who will lose their entitlements during the coming economic collapse? People displaced because of a biological outbreak? Those who will refuse to follow new firearm restrictions? Those listed in the infamous 2009 MIAC report?

Also troubling is how FEMA has hundreds of thousands of plastic coffins stored along a stretch of interstate near Atlanta, Georgia, which is where the Center for Disease Control is located. Due to their close proximity to a large international airport it is believed that the CDC is waiting to disperse these coffins throughout the country when there is high-casualty event such as a pandemic or massive civil unrest. What exactly are they expecting? Why are they storing a half million coffins in plain view? Are these just the overflow that wouldn’t fit hidden away inside warehouses? The government wouldn’t buy this many coffins just in case something happens, they must know something is going to happen.

Next, DHS purchased over 2 billion hollow point rounds. Hollow points are not used by the military because they have been outlawed worldwide for military use by the Hague Convention. Additionally, DHS also bought 7,000 full-auto AR16 rifles to shoot the rounds. Just who does DHS plan to shoot with all these guns and ammo?

Radio show host Mark Levin wrote about how much ammo 2 billion rounds is.

“To provide some perspective, experts estimate that at the peak of the Iraq war American troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month. At that rate, the Department of Homeland Security is armed now for a 24-year Iraq war. A 24-year Iraq war!”

“I’m going to tell you what I think is going on. Law enforcement and national security agencies, they play out multiple scenarios. I’ll tell you what I think they’re simulating: the collapse of our financial system, the collapse of our society and the potential for widespread violence, looting, killing in the streets, because that’s what happens when an economy collapses. I suspect that just in case our fiscal situation, our monetary situation, collapses, and following it the civil society collapses, that is the rule of law, they want to be prepared.”

Another troubling DHS purchase is that of numerous giant armored SWAT vehicles. They have been seen being transported on flatbeds all across America, although nobody seems to know exactly how many they have and where they are being stored.

"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.” (Famous Quote by President Ronald Reagan)

And some of the Homeland Security vehicles have become even more militaristic. DHS retrofitted 2,717 Mine Resistant Protected Vehicles (MRAPs) to be used domestically, within the U.S. Why does DHS need military vehicles that can withstand IEDs and mine blasts?

And for the past several years there have been numerous eye-witness reports and Youtube videos of railroad trains, some miles long, carrying armored military vehicles and tanks to destinations unknown. Most people believe that they are being prepositioned for Martial Law, while a few speculate that articles of surrender have already been signed and the armaments are being secretly transported to China so that they are not available for the active military personal and the patriotic veterans to use to defend the nation from Chinese troops.

MRAP military vehicles being hauled by train in California.

Yet another deeply disturbing DHS purchase was that of $2,000,000 worth of paper targets – called “no hesitation targets” – for their agents to use to practice murdering American citizens. The images on the targets are not that of Molotov cocktail throwing thugs, Islamic terrorists or anything of the like. Instead DHS is practicing shooting pregnant women, children, and let’s not forget ole’ grandma (pictured wearing a robe in her own home). Apparently, DHS agents are being deliberately desensitized to shoot people who they might otherwise hesitate to kill, hence the name “no hesitation.”

In another bizarre move in preparation for Martial Law, DHS has recruited an estimated 26,000 pastors so far to be part of their Clergy Response Teams. These pastors are trained to use Romans 13 to brainwash their congregations into obey government authorities.

The pastors will preach subservience to the authorities once the Martial Law roundups and forced population relocations begin, telling their congregations that it is for their own good. When family members are separated from each other the pastors will be used to comfort separated family members. They will also be used to go to homes where people are refusing to be relocated and convince the reluctant to willingly go to the FEMA camps. Otherwise DHS will send a SWAT teams to remove them. The pastors were forced to sign non-disclosure agreements which require them to not quote Scripture. Pastors will be issued official DHS badges and any pastor not wearing an ID badge will not be permitted into the "DHS safety zones," which is what DHS is calling the FEMA concentration camps. These pastors will also act as informants.

Many high level people have taken notice of these Martial Law preparations. For example, a retired U.S. Army Captain - Terry M. Hestilow - publicly voiced grave concerns over the DHS’s acquisitions of ammo and armored vehicles by posting a letter on his Facebook page, calling them “weapons of war.”

Below is Captain Hestilow’s letter in its entirety.

The Honorable Senator John Cornyn, State of Texas
United States Senate
517 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510

Re: Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and that agencies preparation for war against citizens of the United States of America.

Dear Senator Cornyn,

It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America. To date, DHS has been unwilling to provide to you, the elected representatives of the People, justification for recent purchases of almost 3,000 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) armored personnel carriers, 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition (with associated weapons), and other weapons systems, when, in fact, the DHS has no war mission or war making authority within the limits of the United States of America.

Significant is the fact that at the same time the Obama administration is arming his DHS for war within the limits of the United States against the People of the United States in accordance with his 2008 campaign speech claiming,

“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve gotta (sic) have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded (as the United States military)”–Candidate Barack Obama, 2008.

The Obama administration is deliberately defunding, overextending, and hollowing the Department of Defense; the only legitimate agency of the U.S. government with a war mission.

This act of the Obama administration stands as a glaring threat of war against our nation’s citizens! This act of the Obama administration can only be understood as a tyrannical threat against the Constitution of the United States of America! If left unresolved, the peace loving citizens who have sworn to defend the United States Constitution “against all enemies, both foreign and domestic” are left no option except to prepare to defend themselves, and the U.S. Constitution, against this Administration’s “coup” against the People and the foundations of liberty fought for and defended for the past 238 years. We have no choice if we honor our oaths.

The only proper response to this threat against the American people is for the representatives of the People, the members of the U.S. House and Senate, to demand in clear terms that the Administration cannot ignore, that the Department of Homeland Security immediately surrender their newly appropriated weapons of war to the Department of Defense (DoD).

Further, since the DHS has assumed a position in the Administration to enforce the tyrannical acts of this president against the People of the United States against the limits of the United States Constitution, it remains for the United States Congress to exercise its limiting power in the balancing of powers established by our founding fathers, to disestablish and dissolve the DHS as soon as possible.

One needs only to look to the rise of Adolf Hitler, and his associated DHS organizations, the SA and the SS, of 1932-1934, to see the outcome of allowing an agency of government this kind of control over the free citizens of a nation. The people of Germany could not have imagined, until it was too late, the danger of allowing a tyrant this kind of power. We must not be so naïve as to think it will not happen to us as well if we remain passive toward this power grab by the Marxist Obama administration!

Finally, for more than two centuries the nation has lived in peace at home because of the protections of our legitimate military and the many appropriate state and federal law enforcement agencies, supported by Constitutional courts.

We stand today at a cross-road. Will we allow this present Administration to overthrow our United States Constitution and its legal processes to amend injustices, or, will we honor our obligations to defend the Constitution against a “domestic” enemy? Our Constitution lays out the proper methods of resolving our differences; and it does not include its overthrow by a rogue agency of a Marxist leadership at home.

You, sir, are our constitutionally elected agent to defend our Constitution at home. We are counting upon you. We remain aware, however, of this present threat and will not expose ourselves as an easy prey to the authors of the destruction of our nation.

I know that this letter demands much of you. We elected you because we, the citizens of the State of Texas, believe that you are up to the task at hand and will, against all threats, honor your oath and office. We are also writing to your fellow members of the House and Senate to stand in integrity with the Constitution and against this present threat by the Obama administration and his DHS.

We refuse to surrender our Constitution or our nation!

Resolved,

Captain Terry M. Hestilow
United States Army, Retired
Fort Worth, Texas
March 23, 2013

This is big time stuff. When a highly-credible, decorated military veteran openly says things like, “the Obama administration is arming his DHS for war within the limits of the United States against the People of the United States” and calls for DHS to “immediately surrender their newly appropriated weapons of war to the Department of Defense,” it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that the situation in this country is very serious.

It should be perfectly clear that We The People have been designated as enemies of the state. If anyone thinks that the government won’t declare Martial Law and incarcerate American citizens during a future state of national emergency, they should consider how in the 1940s Japanese-Americans were labeled as being potential dissidents and locked away in concentration camps for many years based on nothing more than their ethnic origin.

Short of renouncing one’s citizenship and leaving the country, owning a cabin hidden away high in the Rocky Mountains is as good of a plan as any to avoid the Martial Law chaos and roundups.
