Today we discuss the recent “foiled terror plot” from a new “underwear bomber” that has recently been exposed as a CIA covert exercise. The mainstream media has been using the incident to instill fear into the minds of the masses in order to justify the continued war on terror. We also look at a leaked military document that seeks to set up reeducation camps for political dissidents.
Here is a pdf of the leaked military document:

New documents have recently surfaced showing that the US military is setting up protocols for facilities where Civilian Internees would be detained. This echoes the rumors of FEMA camps being set up to detain civilians. I thoroughly researched this issue and would like to share with you what I have found. Indeed, these documents exist and the military has been setting up these provisions for decades. Most of this applies only in a military context and mostly to overseas operations, but also evidently on US soil due to the involvement of agencies like DHS, ICE and FEMA. It looks to me like the US is setting things up to enable them to detain large amount of civilians in:
a-disaster scenarios, which would apply to evacuees etc, who would be considered protected persons and released as soon as possible
b-in a situation of civil unrest, most likely under martial law, where anyone who resists its imposition could be detained as a Civilian Internee.
It is apparent to me that the documents are not describing the rounding up of activists in a non-emergency/martial law situation, for the purpose of suppressing free speech or political dissent. Rather, they describe the capture of anyone ‘going againts US interests’ in a situation of civil unrest. However, the documents also refer specifically to PSYOP officers quelling political activism inside these facilities and using ‘psyop products’ to keep inmates in line and crush any rebellion against their captors.
Political activists would be pacified to sympathize with the government
by Paul Joseph Watson
May 3, 2012
A leaked U.S. Army document prepared for the Department of Defense contains shocking plans for “political activists” to be pacified by “PSYOP officers” into developing an “appreciation of U.S. policies” while detained in prison camps inside the United States.
The document, entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF) was originally released on a restricted basis to the DoD in February 2010, but has now been leaked online.
The manual outlines policies for processing detainees into internment camps both globally and inside the United States. International agencies like the UN and the Red Cross are named as partners in addition to domestic federal agencies including the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA.
The document makes it clear that the policies apply “within U.S. territory” and involve, “DOD support to U.S. civil authorities for domestic emergencies, and for designated law enforcement and other activities,” including “man-made disasters, accidents, terrorist attacks and incidents in the U.S. and its territories.”
The manual states, “These operations may be performed as domestic civil support operations,” and adds that “The authority to approve resettlement such operations within U.S. territories,” would require a “special exception” to The Posse Comitatus Act, which can be obtained via “the President invoking his executive authority.” The document also makes reference to identifying detainees using their “social security number.”
Aside from enemy combatants and other classifications of detainees, the manual includes the designation of “civilian internees,” in other words citizens who are detained for, “security reasons, for protection, or because he or she committed an offense against the detaining power.”
Once the detainees have been processed into the internment camp, the manual explains how they will be “indoctrinated,” with a particular focus on targeting political dissidents, into expressing support for U.S. policies.
The re-education process is the responsibility of the “Psychological Operations Officer,” whose job it is to design “PSYOP products that are designed to pacify and acclimate detainees or DCs to accept U.S. I/R facility authority and regulations,” according to the document.
The manual lists the following roles that are designated to the “PSYOP team”.
– Identifies malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders within the facility who may try to organize resistance or create disturbances.
– Develops and executes indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes.
– Identifies political activists.
– Provides loudspeaker support (such as administrative announcements and facility instructions when necessary).
– Helps the military police commander control detainee and DC populations during emergencies.
– Plans and executes a PSYOP program that produces an understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions.
Remember, this is not restricted to insurgents in Iraq who are detained in prison camps – the manual makes it clear that the policies also apply “within U.S. territory” under the auspices of the DHS and FEMA. The document adds that, “Resettlement operations may require large groups of civilians to be quartered temporarily (less than 6 months) or semipermanently (more than 6 months).”
The historical significance of states using internment camps to re-educate detainees centers around the fact that it is almost exclusively practiced by repressive and dictatorial regimes like the former Soviet Union and Stalinist regimes like modern day North Korea.
We have exhaustively documented preparations for the mass internment of citizens inside America, but this is the first time that language concerning the re-education of detainees, in particular political activists, has cropped up in our research.
In 2009, the National Guard posted a number of job opportunities looking for “Internment/Resettlement Specialists” to work in “civilian internee camps” within the United States.
In December last year it was also revealed that Halliburton subsidiary KBR is seeking sub-contractors to staff and outfit “emergency environment” camps located in five regions of the United States.
In 2006, KBR was contracted by Homeland Security to build detention centers designed to deal with “an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S,” or the rapid development of unspecified “new programs” that would require large numbers of people to be interned.
Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was established under the pretext of a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossing the Mexican/US border, the same pretense used in the language of the KBR request for services.
During the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987, however, it was revealed that the program was a secretive “scenario and drill” developed by the federal government to suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, assign military commanders to take over state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens determined by the government to be “national security threats.”
Under the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act, which was signed by Barack Obama on New Year’s Eve, American citizens can be kidnapped and detained indefinitely without trial.
Read a portion of the Internment and Resettlement Operations manual below.
The following portions of the document make it clear that the policies apply “within U.S. territory” (as well as abroad in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan) and that domestic federal agencies are involved.

To others, FEMA is an apt example of the disturbing blurring of the lines between local, state and federal law enforcement and even perhaps a danger to the American people with the moves to create operable detention centers on 72 hours’ notice through KBR.
Not to mention that FEMA is part of what I have no problem calling one of the most problematic government agencies, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Apparently FEMA is trying to help twist the public’s perception of them and their work, not by actually improving themselves but instead by monitoring media coverage in order to present a better face.
According to a solicitation posted on February 15, FEMA is looking to contract a media monitoring firm “To monitor the effectiveness of public affairs messaging, and respond to critical events, FEMA requires the ability to monitor and retrieve clips and transcripts from network and local television affiliates in a rapid manner upon demand 24/7 through an on-line distribution service.”
This monitoring, archiving and analysis would spread across all local news in all “major Nielsen markets,” along with all nationally broadcasted news and all cable news outlets for their coverage of FEMA and their activities.
The monitoring service will be tasked with giving FEMA “media statistics including the audience exposure and publicity value,” for any given news coverage.
“Publicity value” is not defined but one can assume that this is either a subjective determination of the impact of a news story or perhaps an objective determination based on how many outlets cover a given story/event, what the tone of the coverage is (positive or negative), how much time is given to the coverage, etc.
Currently, the FEMA office of external affairs monitors news coverage for their Joint Field Offices (JFOs) along with their headquarters’ broadcast operations.
The project seems to be considerably large, with the solicitation stating that it should be able to hold an unlimited number of digital clips, permanent archiving of said clips, unlimited keyword searches and editing capabilities. Given this capability, it is not a leap to wonder if it might be used to monitor and archive online video and independent news as well.
“The contractor shall provide at least 11 accessible accounts or individual passwords to access the service (with a potential surge capacity of 40 if needed during extremely high disaster activity),” reads the statement of work.
The time frame on this proposal is surprisingly small, with only two days (until February 17) for prospective small businesses to submit questions about the project and until February 23 to have their complete proposals completed and submitted.
This program is clearly not something with the short-term in mind, as FEMA is looking to make this single contract into an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity, or IDIQ, contract. This contract would have a one-year base period and three one-year options although it could be extended indefinitely beyond that.
Seeing as we have no money to spend to begin with, making these kinds of plans seems nothing short of foolish.
No price range is given, instead it is written that, “Price will be evaluated using price analysis to determine the extent to which it is reasonable, realistic, and consistent with the proposal.” Meaning we have absolutely no idea how much we will be paying for FEMA to monitor the news.
It seems quite clear to me that the real reason that FEMA is pursuing this project is to increase their ability to craft public statements and their approach to dealing with the public in an attempt to get the public to see the agency more favorably.
This could also be used to help them engineer better ways to announce disasters, direct the public and generally how to more aptly present themselves as to create the reaction they seek, be it positive or negative.
I don’t see any legitimate reason why this should be paid for when there are countless Americans living in the streets or out of cars, struggling to survive and even more who are struggling to get an education or a job.
Yet, if historical precedent is any indicator, I expect to see this contract fulfilled without a hitch and without comment from the mainstream media, as per usual.

Mass Graves Filled with U.S. Citizens Pile Up as Bodies are Unloaded from Privately Rented U-Haul Trucks
The Intel Hub
January 24, 2012
CHICAGO — An uncanny site as human bodies in makeshift pine boxes are unloaded from a private U-Hual truck.
Mass graves prepared for U.S. citizens are not an urban legend, but a reality originally exposed by Shepard Ambellas of The Intel Hub in March of 2009 on The Alex Jones Show (and infowars.com) with the article titled: Military Industrial Complex Prepares Mass Graves for U.S. Citizens.
Now as a total breakdown of society and an economic collapse looms, the makeshift graves are stacking up.
Mail Online reports;
No mourners were present for the burial at the cemetery, which lies 25 miles south west of Chicago.
The gruesome discovery of the pauper’s burial section at Homewood was made last year, sparking a call for more strict federal regulations for cemeteries.
Sheriff’s officials had found caskets stacked on top of one another – some buried eight at a time – at Homewood.
And the morgue has been accused of missing markers and poor record keeping.
But coroners have said the practice is shared in other cities and states across the U.S.
Tony Cox, the legislative chairman and former president of the Illinois Coroners and Medical Examiners Association, earlier told the Chicago Sun Timesother cities, including New York, follow similar mass burial procedures for those with limited options.
New York City Department of Corrections spokesman Stephen Morello referred to a burial site in Hart Island, New York, where 800,000 bodies lie.
Officials there, he said, follow the same procedure – stacking coffins with inmates’ remains three deep.
Although the size of this operation pales in comparison to the original mass graves Ambellas exposed in 2009, it is still a gruesome find.
One can only wonder if the homeless will be rounded up into FEMA camps and then disposed of in mass graves already set in place nationwide.

Below is a letter composed by one of our peace officers in Ohio. This letter was written to raise awareness of the ominous problems in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.
Because Jim Singleton is a State chapter officer for Ohio Oath Keepers and is Ohio’s Peace Officer Liaison, this letter will be circulated within LE communities around Ohio. I am placing this letter on our national website as a guide and/or template for all Peace Officer members in Oath Keepers in all State chapters.
All are encouraged to write their own letters and mail to all Peace Officer offices in respective States. Oath Keepers is mobilizing on various fronts in response to the travesty called NDAA-2012. Oath Keepers salutes current-serving Peace Officer Jim Singleton, our Ohio chapter Secretary.
Ohio Oath Keepers
Office of the Secretary
Law Enforcement Liaison
Greetings and Salutations,
It’s unfortunate that I have to write this letter, however in light of current events it is inevitable. Just days ago the United States Congress passed the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) this in itself was necessary.
However in this bill was an insidious piece of verbiage that for all intents and purposes destroys the foundation of everything we believe in and took an oath to uphold. To me the possibility of those citizens and others under my protection being spirited off in the middle of the night by agents of the military, then being summarily incarcerated without access to judge or jury are insufferable and intolerable acts.
It will be argued that this only applies to foreign persons or others suspected of terrorism, but there are far too many avenues available to apply this to any group to which any administration may take umbrage with.
When growing up and especially during our training in the academy we are instructed that the constitutional rights of all must be upheld at all times, as well as the respect for all people we come in contact with or represent. This section of the NDAA attempts to remove those rights which are enumerated and given to us by our creator, and places them in the hands of the office of the President of the United States to be disregarded at his whim.
And in those few words lies a conundrum, do we as police officers, sheriffs, deputies and others who have taken the oath to uphold and defend the constitution, now turn our back on that very oath? Do we now turn against the very same people that entrusted us with a most sacred duty to serve and protect them? If in fact we follow a rule of law such as this bill enacts, it would mean that the oath that we all took meant nothing.
We are obliged to follow all lawful orders given to us, but we cannot do this blindly. History has seen the result of these acts and has judged them accordingly. I can only ask all of you to take a moment to reflect upon all that we are taught and hold dear, the people we serve deserve and demand our highest respect for it is through them and they alone that we were given this oath.
Do we simply turn a blind eye for the sake of political expediency and lose our respect? Is a few pieces of silver so dear that we would sell our honor for it? How will we explain to our friends and loved ones why members of our community were spirited away or how will they see us when they realize (that when their time comes) we won’t be there for them?
I believe that if and when those orders come, I cannot in good faith and in strict observance to my oath, allow myself to be a part of them.
I would hope that members of our military in accordance to the articles of the UCMJ, would also refuse them as well. When that time comes I will do exactly as I have sworn to do, I will serve and protect those under my care, so help me God.
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying,
Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?
Then said I, Here am I; send me. Isaiah 6:8

December 23, 2011
On the Friday edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex talks with a Department of Defense Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command source who provides more detail on the military, Department of Homeland Security and FEMA push to build detainment camps and outfit them with contractors, a story covered by Infowars.com earlier in the week.

This includes the explicit codification of indefinite detention without charge or trial as well as rendition under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Fiscal Year 2012, the KBR move to create a team of sub-contractors to activate the so-called FEMA camps on a moment’s notice and the designation of American citizens as the enemy under Continuity of Government (COG) plans created by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Unfortunately, the file revealing the FEMA COG plans, entitled “National Continuity Programs (NCP) Program and Mission Support Services (PAMSS)” was quickly removed from the Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) official website, according to Infowars.
All that is left is a message warning users to not upload any classified materials, even though the document was listed as “Source Selection Sensitive” and not classified, as the warning notice might have you believe.
This serves as just another example of our criminal, corrupt government believing that there is no need for them to be accountable for their actions to the American people which are used as collateral and man power in their insane schemes.
These developments have been part of a gradual march toward an all-encompassing authoritarian police state with a massive surveillance grid so expansive George Orwell would likely never believe it could be reality.
Just a few pieces of this incomparably complex control grid include the Carrier IQ monitoring software which is loaded on to every major smartphone by every major wireless service provider, drone surveillance which includes so-called threat assessment technology and facial recognition, comprehensive and centralized biometric databases, along with widespread citizen spying programs.
This surveillance state, which has already been rolled out and is only increasing in reach and depth, is complimented by the militarization of police moving towards a de facto martial law.
However, the NDAA makes the steady move to turn local and state police departments into paramilitary forces look like child’s play.
Previously, I believed that programs like the Pentagon’s 1033 program were being used to transform public servants into public oppressors without having to formally declare martial law, but now it is clear that I was wrong.
Under the NDAA, there is absolutely no need to declare martial law now or in the future, given that it effectively eviscerates the Bill of Rights, the Posse Comitatus Act and the Non-Detention Act.
Declaring martial law would just be redundant, given that there is absolutely nothing stopping the military from kicking down the doors of innocent Americans and holding them indefinitely under the guise of fighting terrorism.
We are already seeing military technology being rolled out in situations where it hardly seems warranted, as was the case with the use of a Predator B drone in North Dakota, along with the entirety of the dangerous domestic drone program, and the decision to deploy an armored personnel carrier (APC) to the Occupy Tampa protests.
There is no need for the individual to even have tenuous links to terrorism or terrorist groups, as the military will never be forced to justify their actions or present evidence to anyone.
Even more disturbing is that now American citizens can be charged with providing “material support” to terrorists simply by writing about issues which might otherwise be covered by free speech.
This was exemplified by the case of 29-year-old Tarek Mehanna who federal prosecutors claim travelled to Yemen in 2004 in hopes of training as a terrorist and then killing American soldiers fighting in Iraq.
However, Mehanna failed to locate any training camps – clearly indicating he is not keyed in to the terrorist underworld – and then allegedly returned home to promote al Qaeda by writing about violent jihad against the United States online.
Mehanna and his legal team gave a much different story: instead of going to Yemen to attempt, and fail, to find a terrorist training camp, Mehanna claims that he went to Yemen simply to receive instruction to become an Islamic scholar and that his writings on the internet were protected by free speech.
Carol Rose, the executive director of the Massachusetts chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), said that they are “gravely concerned that today’s verdict against Tarek Mehanna undermines the First Amendment and threatens national security.”
“Under the government’s theory of the case, ordinary people – including writers and journalists, academic researchers, translators, and even ordinary web surfers – could be prosecuted for researching or translating controversial or unpopular ideas. If the verdict is not overturned on appeal, the First Amendment will be seriously compromised,” the ACLU’s statement said.
It is clear that there is an assault on the Constitution on all fronts, with the federal government leading the charge in the war against our liberties, as clearly shown by the disturbing levels of support for the NDAA seen in both the House and Senate.
Increasingly American citizens are being treated like the enemy, and if the NDAA’s sections are fully utilized, many Americans could be locked up as prisoners of war and civilian internees without charge or trial with no hope of being released until the government makes the call.
The disturbing truth is that being designated a civilian internee is literally the best case scenario for people like myself who relentlessly expose government malfeasance and the evisceration of our most essential liberties as protected by the Constitution.
The mainstream corporate controlled media is all but completely ignoring the NDAA, and when they do cover it, which is laughably rare, they whitewash the most important sections and claim that the bill does not actually provide for the indefinite detention of American citizens, which I clearly debunked in a previous article.
As every week goes by, it becomes clearer that we are approaching a crossroads in this nation and around the world.
One road will lead us even further down the slippery slope of tyranny into a situation that would make the Orwellian police state we currently see unfolding around us look tame.
This road leads to massive indefinite detention of American citizens in FEMA prison camps which have already been erected around the nation, along with the establishment of even more detention centers on military installations and elsewhere.
It also leads to the total abolition of habeas corpus and all of the rights which so many Americans never imagined could ever be in danger of being impinged on, restricted, or even removed altogether.
The other road is obviously the one I would much prefer we head down.
This is one where the traitors in our government are brought to justice, the tyrannical financial establishment is dismantled in favor of a much more equitable debt-free monetary system, and the global imperialistic force serving the corporate elite that the United States military has become is radically changed.
The nationwide and now global surveillance state would be scrapped, the mainstream media would become irrelevant and die off in a matter of days, the government would no longer believe itself to be immune from criticism and the once opaque operations would become open and accountable to the people footing the bill.
No longer would innocent people be slaughtered at home and abroad in the name of the sham that is the war on terror and the United States would no longer be the reviled death machine that it has become thanks to our hijacked government.
Collusion between corporate interests and all government corruption would no longer be the rampant, parasitic blight that it currently is.
Our freedoms and safety would be secured, not through a phony war on terror which seeks to have us trade liberty for security, but instead through a genuine government that actually sought to protect its citizens and not use them as collateral and slave labor in private prisons.
The failed drug war would end and thus the countless non-violent offenders we are paying to keep locked up in college for criminals while they are exploited for cheap labor by government-connected corporations would no longer fill our prisons.
Medical marijuana could replace many overpriced and dangerous pharmaceutical treatments and hemp could drastically impact countless industries and revive the American economy and turn the United States back into the manufacturing powerhouse and economic power it once was.
Bankers would be held accountable for their criminal activity and no longer would our government be a revolving door system for corporations and their employees.
It would truly be a government of the people for the people, but this not something that would happen overnight nor is it something that could occur without the majority of Americans waking up to reality and taking a stand.
It now appears that it is only a matter of time until the government either drops the hammer and we find ourselves travelling rapidly down the dark road or the American people finally stand up and refuse to let our nation be destroyed any further.
Hopefully Americans will not wait to take action until the worst case scenario has unfolded, as it very well might be too late at that point.
I encourage all of my readers to spread this information to anyone and everyone and encourage them to actually look into it, check my sources and decide for themselves if they want to wait and ignore the signs or start making an effort to make our country, and the world, a better place for ourselves and future generations or just allow a once-great nation to become a system that would make the Soviets green with envy.

Given the current developments in the United States with the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Fiscal Year 2012 and the indefinite detention provisions contained therein, I think taking some time to cover psychological preparedness is incredibly important.
Usually, whenever someone speaks of preparedness, they mean physical preparedness and thus taking measures like securing food, water, protection, shelter, etc. in times of emergency.
While this is obviously very important, it is only a very small part of the picture and in times of true emergency, you might be unable to take your supplies or whatever you might have stored away.
Under the NDAA, people like myself, and likely most people reading this, could be snatched up by the military at any moment.
There is the real possibility that we could be taken to one of the many detention centers erected around the nation, or even worse, to any foreign country.
The NDAA specifically states that you or I could be not only transferred to any foreign nation but any foreign entity, meaning that you could be transported to some even more brutal regime abroad to be tortured and killed with impunity.
These very real possibilities are too oft ignored by people promoting preparedness, likely because they realize that they’re not going to be able to sell you a year’s supply of food while telling you the reality of the situation in the United States.
Obviously, the military isn’t going to knock on your door and offer to help you carry several boxes full of canned goods to be transported with your person to a domestic or foreign detention center of some kind.
Nor will they offer to let you take your weapons, water, or any of the other many items you might have acquired in your efforts to be prepared for the worst case scenario.
This is where the concept of psychological preparedness comes in, and it is something that is either completely ignored, marginalized or barely mentioned by far too many people in the so-called truth movement.
One can only speculate as to the reason for this, but I suspect it is because you can’t sell products for psychological preparedness and some might see it as a defeatist attitude, while in reality it is the exact opposite.
One might argue that this is a defeatist attitude because you must accept that the absolute worst case scenario could very well unfold at any moment and be psychologically prepared for that horrific possibility.
However, I believe that you can live a much more productive and healthy life if you accept that you could not only die at any moment but also have your life turn into a reality so nightmarish that it is hard to imagine.
If you realize this and psychologically prepare for the worst, you will find that you only end up being pleasantly surprised by every good thing that happens to you, no matter how small.
And if all goes well and the hellish possibilities never unfold after you have already accepted that the worst could happen, I bet that you will likely find that you’re happier and more prepared in every way than you would otherwise.
On the other hand, if you only prepare for an economic collapse by stocking up on storable food, protection, fuel, and so forth, and suddenly you find yourself completely unprepared for the situation you are in, you will likely be psychologically overwhelmed.
Some find even considering the possibility of having your door kicked down and being dragged off kicking and screaming to a prison camp to be depressing or otherwise untenable, but to ignore this possibility is to ignore reality.
Contrary to what many in the establishment media might tell you, preparedness is not something to be demonized or otherwise made out to be radical, extreme or relegated to the lunatic fringe.
There are only benefits that can be reaped from being prepared both physically and psychologically, while there are no benefits to be found from failing to be prepared in any way.
Just imagine for a moment what it would be like to find yourself in a situation you had convinced yourself was relegated to dystopian works of fiction and would never become a reality.
Do you believe that taking such an approach would benefit you? Would you really like to delude yourself until wake up in a tiny cell in a prison camp somewhere in the United States or abroad?
I recommend that you take the simple steps to psychologically prepare for this worst case scenario now, instead of waiting until the situation has already presented itself.
Getting psychologically prepared is free, easy and only takes a bit of imagination and creativity. You do not need to spend thousands of dollars on storable foods, in fact all you need to do is sit down and accept that life as you know it could change or end completely at any moment.
This is somewhat like preparing yourself for the possibility that every time you drive someone could come careening around a corner out of control and smash into your car, killing you instantly.
While it is relatively unlikely, it is statistically very possible that such an atrocious situation would occur at any time when you leave your house.
Even more unlikely, but also possible, is that a car could come crashing through your living room and hit you while you sit on your couch.
These are just a couple of examples illustrating that you must accept that life as you know it could radically change or end altogether at any point in time.
By realizing this, you cannot be taken off guard or truly surprised by anything that comes your way; no matter how horrible or unimaginable it might be for others.
This is not depressing as some would say, this should really be seen as empowering, as it gives you the ability to be ready for and deal with whatever life might throw your way.
And if all goes well, as we all hope it will, then you can simply say that you were prepared and thankfully you did not have to see the worst unfold.
However, if the NDAA is utilized as so many of us have realized it can be, you will be well aware and prepared for the grim possibilities that could present themselves at any moment.
The most important aspect of psychological preparedness is to not live in fear. To be ruled by fear is to give those in power exactly what they want and you will inevitably be easily manipulated and controlled because of it.
Being prepared both physically and psychologically should allow you to live without fear of anything, as you have already accepted the worst that life can throw at you.
If you do nothing else, take a few moments out of your day to be grateful for whatever you have while accepting that it could all disappear without so much as a moment’s notice.
This will serve to make you impervious to whatever curveballs are thrown your way, no matter how wild and unlikely it may seem right now, while also making you that much more appreciative of whatever good life brings your way.

Today the United States House of Representatives and Senate both passed their final versions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012, or H.R. 1540.
This represents the complete destruction of everything that America is supposed to stand for, the most essential of rights have been stripped away and we are left wondering what the traitors in Washington will do next.
It has become painfully clear that the true terrorists are not hiding in caves in Afghanistan shooting at NATO troops with rusted second-hand assault rifles, but instead wear $5,000 suits and stroll happily through the halls of power in the United States.
The House passed their final version of the NDAA with a massive majority of 283 to 136 and the Senate passed it with a vote of 86 to 13, once again proving that our so-called Representatives do not represent us in any way and in fact are traitorous criminals and enemies of freedom.
No longer do we need to fear our country being attacked by foreign forces hell bent on destroying the American way of life, as these forces can be found calling themselves our “Representatives” while living large on the backs of the American people.
The signing of the NDAA with the detention provisions – that is, sections 1031 and 1032 most importantly – intact represents the final nail in the coffin of our once Constitutional Republic.
I can honestly say that I previously thought that the PATRIOT Act would be the worst legislation I would ever see in my lifetime and quite unfortunately, I was wrong. Dead wrong.
As I said when first covering S.1253, the precursor to S.1867 which the Senate passed with a 93% majority, this legislation makes the PATRIOT Act look like the Bill of Rights, and that is not in any way hyperbolic.
I previously exposed the fact that the claim that Obama would veto the NDAA was wholly without merit, and unfortunately I have been proven right once again when the White House withdrew the veto threat completely.
With the detention provisions intact, and thus the power to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or trial on nothing more than suspicion, the NDAA is the most dangerous legislation to come before the President in recent history.
Some have attempted to amend the NDAA to explicitly protect American citizens and lawful permanent residents from being targeted, but to no avail.
This is the most major problem with so many proponents’ arguments: if they did not intend to leverage this against the American people, especially dissidents who are standing up to the rampant corruption and pervasive police state measures, why wouldn’t they pass such an amendment?
The answer is quite obvious, really. They have every intention of using this against so-called “belligerents” which could be anyone who refuses to bow down to the megalomaniacal ruling class, including people like myself who explicitly reject any and all forms of violence.
When the NDAA is signed by the President – which is all but ironclad at this point – it will only be a short time until the military can begin rounding up American citizens and the FEMA camps could be activated and utilized thanks to KBR’s National Quick Response Teams.
Yet there is indeed a silver lining to this nightmarish cloud, although I’m still holding back from jumping for joy at this point.
This last bastion of hope is known as the “Due Process Guarantee Act of 2011” which was proposed by Senator Dianne Feinstein of California.
The bill is intended, “To clarify that an authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States”.
The bill is intended to amend Section 4001 of title 18, United States Code, known as the “Limitation on detention; control of prisons”.
The bill would insert the following after subsection (a), “(b)(1) An authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States apprehended in the United States, unless an Act of Congress expressly authorizes such detention.
“(2) Paragraph (1) applies to an authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority enacted before, on, or after the date of the enactment of the Due Process Guarantee Act of 2011.”
Sounds great, doesn’t it? Well, there are still a few glaring problems, the most major of which is that this only applies to American citizens and lawful permanent residents who are apprehended within the United States.
Furthermore, it only protects us so long as an Act of Congress does not expressly authorize such detention.
Given the fact that the Congress has already betrayed us in passing the NDAA, can we really rely on hoping that they wouldn’t pass an Act nullifying the Due Process Guarantee Act of 2011, if it indeed passes?
I think such a hope would not only be misguided and naïve but indeed ignorant and divorced from the reality which has presented itself to us in the past months.
Moreover, we are relying on what is arguably an equally nonsensical hope: that the Senate – which voted with a massive majority in favor of the NDAA both times – would actually vote for the Due Process Guarantee Act of 2011.
I, for one, am not going to hold my breath in hopes that they will come through and do the right thing as they have proven that they are some of the most untrustworthy, despicable individuals all too well as of late.
Another major problem for me is that Feinstein, who unfortunately is one of my so-called Representatives, actually voted for the NDAA as you can see in the Senate’s roll call for today’s vote.
She also voted in favor of S.1867, the Senate’s version of the NDAA. Can we really expect her to pass something that will protect us after actively working against us in such a blatant manner?
I think not, and unless there is a massive change in how our government views the American people I do not expect to see positive events unfold as a result.
However, the future is ours to determine at this point and the situation could unfold in any number of ways.
Either we could see the most hellish police state imaginable with Americans being arrested and detained indefinitely by the military for any reason or no reason at all, or we could see the military step up and honor their oaths and refuse unlawful orders and arrest those who issued them, or we could see a second American revolution.
It is impossible to say which we will see, but I hope that the military will pause and remember their sworn oaths and who the real enemies are.
“We the People” are not the enemies of the Constitution; instead it is those traitors in Washington who would love to see nothing other than all of our most essential liberties stripped away in the name of fighting the fraudulent war on terror.
Hopefully the military would realize this and act accordingly, or else the situation would likely be one in which the vast majority of people in the United States would suffer for an unimaginable length of time.

December 23, 2011
The top news story of 2011 is not the assassination of Osama Bin Laden (a CIA psyop), but the advancement of the Martial Law agenda in America under the public radar.
On Wednesday, December 21, Infowars.com published a brand new Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) document dated November 18, 2011, that “that show military involvement in a FEMA-led takeover within the United States under partially-classified Continuity of Government (COG) plans,” and designate “the American people as ‘enemies’ under a live military tracking system known as Blue Force Situational Awareness (BFSA).”
The FEMA document, appearing under the headline “National Continuity Programs (NCP) Program and Mission Support Services (PAMSS),” ask contractors to assist FEMA in national emergencies. But don’t let the bureaucratic language fool you.
This is really a Martial Law document. FEMA is not interested in emergency preparedness, but in establishing a military dictatorship in the United States.
Ordinary Americans are classified as the enemy in this FEMA document, and similar Martial Law documents, such as this one from Halliburton/KBR that Infowars.com published on Tuesday, December 6, 2011.
The militaristic language that appears in these Martial Law documents, and in the draconian NDAA bill that the treacherous Congress passed last week, suggests that the hijacked U.S. government desires that there be insurgents and domestic terrorists in the United States.
The traitors in Washington need enemies, both foreign and domestic, in order for the politically and morally bankrupt National Security State to remain relevant and powerful in American society.
This is a militarist and secret system that is led by the most evil personalities in the 21st century who create fake enemies (Al-Qaeda) and stage false flag terrorist attacks (9/11) just to remain in power. The word restraint does not exist in their vocabulary.
The day will come when the traitors in Washington, led by President Obama, will issue orders to the military and police to fire on Americans and enforce Martial Law. At that point, even the most blind and ignorant people will probably come to the obvious conclusion that it is not Al-Qaeda who desires the destruction of America, but the hijacked and treasonous U.S. government.
Much like in Iraq and other occupied countries, the hijacked U.S. government is reaching out to private contractors like KBR to help the U.S. military and Homeland Security implement Martial Law.
Government thugs and private contractors will be used to control the population in critical areas of the country after the coming economic collapse, as well as to contain and eliminate domestic threats, meaning any American citizen who does not want a hijacked military and blood-soaked mercenaries occupying America.
The idea that America will come under military occupation sounds foreign, but it shouldn’t, because the dark road that was taken by the murderous thieves in Washington after 9/11 would eventually lead to such a crisis.
What is written down in FEMA papers and similar Martial Law documents must be put into a larger political and historical context. America’s political system did not suddenly transform into a tyrannical beast overnight.
The rise of the shadow state, and its evil twin brother, the police state, has been decades in the making.
The culture of the police has been so dramatically altered during this time that for many brainwashed police officers the implementation of Martial Law is a natural and necessary response to emergencies and crises.
After three decades of a traumatic war on drugs, military rhetoric comes naturally to hardened police officers, who don’t see themselves as protectors of the law and the public but as warriors of the state fighting terrorists, criminals, protesters, and drug dealers.
All of these threats, by the way, are invented and exaggerated. If the war on drugs and the war on terror are ended, the warriors of the state will be forced to redefine their identity and occupation because without endless wars to be fought and without enemies to be killed then there is no use for a warrior class.
And society doesn’t really need a warrior class. Our common interests and our democratic values are not threatened by “terrorists,” but by an international oligarchy. Police officers and military men need to grasp this reality. And they also need to realize that by blindly accepting a state of war, and viewing the American population as the enemy, they – the warriors of the state – become the real enemies of the public and the rule of law. But the biggest enemies are the philosophical masters who stand above the brainwashed warriors and define their goals as noble and heroic, but direct their will towards evil ends.
If the facts were known, Martial Law in America, and North America, would be defeated before it is even implemented. A military dictatorship won’t last for long if enough people speak up and fight back.
We have the numbers, the truth, and the bravery to reclaim freedom for future generations to live happily and prosper in this new century. The traitors and terrorists in Washington are not on the right side of history. They are cowards to be defeated, not giants to be feared.
And the truth is they are scared and ashamed, that’s why they do everything in secret. The shameful FEMA document was posted on a government website called FBO.gov, but was immediately taken down after radio host Alex Jones alerted his listeners to the existence of the document and discussed its broader significance.
This shows that the hijacked U.S. government is controlled by very frightened and pathetic people who know they are crossing a red line by quietly setting up a military dictatorship in America.
Aaron Dykes explained why the government’s censorship of the document is unwarranted in his article, “Government censors document revealing plans to wage war on Americans”:
“The government-linked document we posted was marked ‘Source Selection Sensitive’ but not considered classified. Further, it was listed publicly on a government website that was soliciting bids for government contracts. However, despite its public classification, it contains information that clearly is NOT intended to gain wide publicity.”
This document does not tell us anything new. We’ve known for years that there is a conspiracy to destroy America and other Western nations through an engineered economic collapse and a false global war of terror that has been used to legitimize the destruction of basic human rights in the West.
Some facts can no longer be denied and dismissed. It is not a theory that is America is being destroyed by the traitors and terrorists in Washington. It is reality. It is self-evident.
Fortunately, the hijacked U.S. government has no public credibility. Its systematic policy of deceit and fraud, its destruction of the Constitution, and its illegal implementation of Martial Law will backfire severely.
American law professor and lawyer Jonathan Turley said on C-SPAN on December 19, 2011 that most Americans do not fear any foreign threats like Al-Qaeda, but their own unresponsive and out-of-control government:
“We’ve had three polls in the last year and they all show the same thing. The American people say that they are more afraid of the government than they are outside forces like terrorists. So there’s this disconnect.
The majority of Americans are actually very concerned about the loss of rights, but Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, can’t move harder against privacy. And this is part of the cynical calculation. I think that President Obama made this calculation early on and decided that no one would be to the right of him on terrorism and national security, and he has taken the Democratic party with him on that.
So you have this remarkable disconnect, where the majority of citizens are going, ‘We’re really concerned about this. We are fearful of our own government,’ and yet it’s just not translating on the hill.”
In the near future, Washington may not even exist. The wild wolves of the new world order in the shadow CIA, and their partners in crime in the shadow Mossad, could burn down Washington D.C. in a false flag attack and relocate in Denver, Colorado.
They have already turned the heart of New York City into a pit of ashes, so what’s stopping them from doing the same to the heart of the capital in the heart of the present global order, Washington D.C?
These psychopathic maniacs are capable of carrying out the greatest acts of evil and destruction in human history. Loss of life on an epic scale means nothing to them. They desire mass death and mass destruction.
In their eyes, they believe they must destroy the basic foundations of America, from the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to the grand architecture of Washington D.C., before they can move on and establish their fascist global dictatorship upon the ruins of the old age.
If such a dark and scary scenario unfolds, if Washington is destroyed by the lawless power elite, then Colorado will become America’s green zone, out of which America’s shadow terrorist state will wage war against a politically awakened and rebellious population.

What Is The Best Country In The World For Americans To Relocate To In Order To Avoid The Coming Economic Collapse?
The Economic Collapse
December 8, 2011
Millions of American citizens have already left the United States in search of a better life. As the economy continues to crumble and as our society slowly falls apart, millions of others are thinking about it. But moving to another country is not something to be done lightly. The reality is that there are a vast array of social, cultural, economic and safety issues to be considered. If you have never traveled outside of North America, then you have no idea how incredibly different life in other parts of the world can be. For those that are unfamiliar with international travel, it can be quite a shock to suddenly be immersed in a foreign culture. In fact, no matter how experienced you are, choosing to relocate to a new country is never easy. But things have gone downhill so dramatically in the United States that picking up and moving to a foreign nation is being increasingly viewed as a viable alternative by millions of Americans. A lot of people have decided that they simply do not want to be in the United States when the excrement hits the fan. So what is the best country in the world for Americans to relocate to in order to avoid the coming economic collapse?
For each person, that answer may be different. A lot depends on how much money you have and what your career situation is. A lot depends on what stage of life you are at and what your family situation is. Moving to another country can be very complicated and it can be a lot of work, but there are millions of people that have found it to be very rewarding.
When it comes to leaving America, a lot of people out there have some really strong opinions.
Many people believe that leaving the United States at this time would be abandoning our country in its hour of greatest need. They are convinced that virtually everyone should stay and fight to turn this country around.
Others believe that there is no hope for the United States at all and that leaving this country is the only rational thing to do. A lot of Americans have decided that the best future for their children and their grandchildren is going to be found in another part of the globe.
Still others are waiting to see what is going to happen during this next election. Most people would agree that 2012 is going to represent a huge turning point for the United States, and if the election goes the wrong way it could move America down a road from which it will never recover.
But whatever you believe, the reality is that more Americans than ever seem to be interested in relocating overseas. This appears to be particularly true of younger Americans.
A recent CNBC article contained the following amazing statistics….
*According to the U.S. State Department, 6.3 million Americans are either working or studying overseas. That is the highest number that has ever been recorded.
*According to one recent survey, “the percentage of Americans aged 25 to 34 actively planning to relocate outside the U.S. has quintupled in just two years, from less than 1 percent to 5.1 percent.”
*That same survey found that 40 percent of all Americans in the 18 to 24 age group are expressing interest in relocation outside of the United States. Two years ago that figure was only at 15 percent.
So why are so many Americans looking to relocate?
Well, our economy continues to get worse and worse. If you have not heard yet, it has been announced that an all-time record 46 million Americans are now on food stamps.
How much worse can it get?
We just keep setting new record after new record. Shouldn’t the government just put us all on food stamps and get it over with?
A lot of Americans want to escape this country before they get sucked into the vortex of poverty that has trapped so many other American families. 2.6 million more Americans fell into poverty last year. In addition, according to the U.S. Census Bureau the percentage of Americans living in extreme poverty today is higher than has ever been measured before.
As poverty and despair spread across the United States, the fabric of our society is breaking down. As I have written about so many times, the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is starting to disappear.
Mob violence is becoming increasingly common in America. The following example from earlier this week comes from a story in the Blaze….
New York City firefighters came to the rescue of two NYPD cops who were outnumbered and getting pummeled by 50 angry female teenagers on Tuesday.
The Firefighters from the FDNY opened up on the violent crowd with a “deluge gun”– which is a high-powered, truck-mounted water cannon–finally causing the mob to disperse.
As society breaks down, the government is becoming even more repressive in an attempt to maintain control. Paranoia has become standard operating procedure and we are all considered to be potential terrorists. Sadly, the United States is rapidly being turned into a totalitarian “Big Brother” police state. Millions of Americans are not excited about living in a giant prison and they are starting to look for alternatives.
Meanwhile, the U.S. government continues to pile up the biggest debt in the history of the world and spend money on some of the most ridiculous things imaginable. If you can believe it, over the past 10 years the U.S. government has actually spent almost a quarter of a billion dollars on genital pumps for old men.
Our government is drowning in debt, our businesses are drowning in debt and American consumers are drowning in debt. At some point this entire house of cards is going to come crashing down.
Are you sure that you want to be living in the United States when that happens?
If you do plan to move outside of the United States, there are a lot of things that you need to consider….
It is a lot easier to move to another country if you are independently wealthy. Since most of us are not, you will likely have to consider how you will pay for the lifestyle that you plan to have once you move.
There are some countries (like many of the nations of northern Europe) where the cost of living is extremely high. If you plan to move to Europe that is something that you will need to plan for.
There are other nations where the strength of the U.S. dollar is a huge benefit (at least for now). If you have a sufficient bankroll saved up there are some areas of the world where you can literally live like a king.
Unless you are retired, you will need to consider what kind of job you are going to work once you move. If you do not speak the language of the country that you are moving to that is going to really limit your career options.
Also, you will need to keep in mind that wages in many areas of the world (especially in the third world) are much lower than in the United States.
Americans are often shocked to learn that the rights that we enjoy in the United States do not apply in the rest of the world.
You need to evaluate whether or not you can live with the laws that will be imposed upon you in the country that you choose to relocate to.
For example, I would not have the same freedom of speech to write the things that I do in a lot of other countries. There are many countries that actually hunt down and arrest bloggers like me.
Also, it is important to keep in mind that huge taxes or huge fees are often imposed on those moving to a new country. You may actually have to pay a tax on whatever possessions you bring with you.
In many areas of the world you will not be able to count on the police coming to help you if a crime is committed.
Even if police are available where you choose to live, that does not mean that they will not be corrupt.
So it is imperative that you come up with a security plan. Keep in mind that in many countries the ownership of guns is either banned or is severely limited.
If you choose to relocate overseas without the rest of your family, you probably will not get to see them very often at all anymore.
It will be important for you to evaluate whether you will be able to take long-term separation from your family or not.
Also, it can be very lonely living overseas in a foreign nation where you do not know the language. In many countries Americans are deeply hated so you may find it difficult to make friends.
This is something that should not be underestimated. Moving into the middle of a foreign culture can be absolutely shattering for many people. A lot of Americans have absolutely no idea what life is like on the other side of the globe.
If you are thinking of moving to another country, it might be a really good idea to visit it first so that you can get a feel for what you are getting into.
So what is the best country in the world for Americans to relocate to?
I am not going to answer that question myself. Instead, I want to ask my readers to help me answer that question.
Over the next couple of days, I am going to take comments that readers on my site leave and I am going to post them at the end of this article. Many of them are extremely knowledgeable, and hopefully they can help all of us learn more about what life is like on the other side of the world.
So if you would like to participate in this debate, please post a comment at the end of this article on The Economic Collapse Blog with your opinion. Please tell us what country you think is best for Americans to move to and the reasons why you think that it is the best.
This should be a fun debate, and I am looking forward to hearing what you all have to say.

Darrin McBreen reports on new documents that reveal current on-going operations to staff the FEMA and U.S. Army camps it runs around the United States.
December 9, 2011
For the record, I said months ago that I did NOT believe that there was a REAL plan to round up American/US citizens and put us into “FEMA camps”… being that I am from the “show me state” of missouri.. I felt this claim required more proof that what was offered months/years ago.
Now, the tables have turned, and I surely / sorely stand corrected.
The US congress has approved a bill which AUTHORIZES THE MILITARY to be able to arrest US citizens on US SOIL !!! Not only can they arrest us without cause, they can hold you indefinitely — with no lawyer and no one knowing your location !! ( they can do this now through this “law” that was passed…by labeling you beligerent towards the government thus being a terrorist sympathizer — therefore allowing the military to take you to a secret prison without a trial)
Also this very same short period of days, this week, KBR (security corporation which handles FEMA emergency camps) put out a call to staff these FEMA camps.. and to be ready on a 72 hour notice.
Take these two events together.. same week… FEMA camps being alerted to staff on a short notice, and the US military authorized to arrest people at the drop of a hat.
Who voted yes and who voted no:
Here is the s. 1867 military authorization bill:
here is the link to KBR security corporation needing to staff FEMA camps with a 72 hour notice:
Here is the general link to Alex Jones / Infowars — who has been staying on top of this issue.. (I know a lot of people thumb their nose at AJ — but this is just one of MANY news outlets covering this issue — just search on google s.1867 or KBR FEMA if you don’t like Alex Jones or agree with his other work) This issue transcends “personalities”… we need to put any differences aside and deal with this together in unison !

December 7, 2011
The recent passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (Senate Bill 1867), otherwise known as the “Indefinite Detention Bill,” should scare the heck out of anyone who loves the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
This bill effectively hands over control to the military to arrest, torture and even kill terrorists on American soil. It also allows the military to hold suspected terrorists indefinitely without a trial or due process.
This applies to both non-citizens and citizens of the United States! With this bill, you are not innocent until proven guilty. You are guilty until proven innocent, and you may never get a trial to defend yourself. There is surprisingly little written in the mainstream media about this Senate bill that passed 93 to 7 at the end of November.
Last week, Wired.com posted a compelling article on the “Indefinite Detention” debacle.
It said in part, “So despite the Sixth Amendment’s guarantee of a right to trial, the Senate bill would let the government lock up any citizen it swears is a terrorist, without the burden of proving its case to an independent judge, and for the lifespan of an amorphous war that conceivably will never end. And because the Senate is using the bill that authorizes funding for the military as its vehicle for this dramatic constitutional claim, it’s pretty likely to pass.
It would be one thing if the military was clamoring for the authority to become the nation’s jailer. But to the contrary: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta opposes the maneuver. So does CIA Director David Petraeus, who usually commands deference from senators in both parties. Pretty much every security official has lined up against the Senate detention provisions, from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to FBI Director Robert Mueller, who worry that they’ll get in the way of FBI investigations of domestic terrorists. President Obama has promised to veto the bill.” (The links in the preceding two paragraphs are impressive and need to be read.) (Click here to read the complete Wired.com post.)
My question is who decides who is a terrorist, and who checks to make sure the charges are valid?
