Here's a site that lists many of the camps, by state, also the executive orders permitting mass takeover of all industry, private homes and food, animals, detention of populace, relocation of population.

Yes, the road signs are all marked with reflectors so the military trucks know where to go to pick up citizens taken by helicopter to drop off detention points. Any place, like a large tennis court with a high chainlink fence surrounding, can be used for a temporary detention holding place for American citizens, just like in the movie Red Dawn.

I did not believe this when I read it. It had to be a hoax. So... I went to the official reporting center for Bills for the United States Congress. This is not a joke.

Bill Text

This is a legitimate, and OFFICIAL government website. This is eerie stuff folks.

A little more info on the Bill

That's the Congressional excuse.

Perhaps its time to call your congressman?

The Committee Where the Bill is, Currently

These would be the congressmen to call. If they can kill it in committee...

Why doesn't it say detention anywhere?

Bit of a misleading title don't you think?



Oh and this isn't breaking news, since it happened over a month ago.

Relax the camps don't exist as of yet but maybe it's a jobs creation thing. No I'm not going to follow your link to a 10 year old video that has been debunked to death. Do the foot work and report back.

The list is wrong. I happen to live near Blytheville. The base is indeed closed. BUT, it is open to traffic. Let me tell you what you will find there.
Westminister Retirement Village. Thunder Bayou golf course. A few businesses that are doing fairly well, even in this economy. The Humane Shelter. A private Gun club.
What you WON"T find. Newly constructed wooden barracks. The barracks that are there are falling appart.
The runways are in good shape, and every now and then, the Air Force uses the the runways. But guards? no. Soldiers? no. Unless the aircraft mechanics and all the old folks living there are undercover special ops folks, which I somehow doubt.
I also doubt the rest of the bases are being used as FEMA camps as well, all though Fort Chaffee was used for some of the refugees from Katrina.

I will no be the leat bit suprised, if someting bad or catastrophic happens, an inside job like 9/11. Nuclear detonation in DC or NYC, biological germ or virus outbreak in some major city..all government and CIA orchestrated, to get things moving...make people belive FEMA is the place to go.. not me..something does happen i will NOT be participating with FEMA..seems like a death sentence, from what ive learned and heard. Being thier on military bases, that represent US government. A thread was started not too long ago, about Bush;s executive order 11110? Authorizing martial law and police and military can kick down yuor door without a warrant, even for hte slightest sepcualtion of having a gun or being a terrorist. As far as i know, that executive order has NOT been deactivated or reversed. I fear something big is goin on, and the FEMA camps are a part of it. What lovely work they did during Katrina...familys were split up all over the states, and the campers, also FEMA, were found to be laced somewhat with formaldyahide, kerosine i think was another.
Well, this a clear sign the governemnt i not on our side, and indeed, have the best of intentions for us...some of the owrst things imagiinabel have been done, with the best of intentions...AUswitch, the atomic bomb, were creatted with the best of intentions..and look what happened. This is unamerican, and i firmly belive, something adolph hitler would have done. SO much for democracy and constitution of the united states: ( I feel like sending them an email at least... COnstitution of the united states of america...its BY AND FOR the people yuo remember that congress..

When i wa a kid, it was public opinion that counted. be it voting, to rallying at congress...apparently today, its an unheard of thing. Problem is, everyone is oblivious to whats going on, hencce forth the dumbing down of america, to being taught not to care anymore, via the system.
anything happens, im DEF going new hampshire..i suspect up thier at least, thyed put up one hell of a constitutional fight!

Yes, I do believe the financing of this is part of the whole "HR 1" stimulus package. I've been trying to get back to it on opencongress.com but my web browser freezes up every time I try and load the text. I remember distinctly reading about this on the bill when it was first put out.

This bill HR 645 was introduced on 1/22/09. 2 days after the president came into office.

Any why again are national emergency centers a bad thing? Wouldn't their existence help prevent another Katrina-style nightmare?

I've found from my experience here at ATS, that the more members there are saying "HERE WE GO" in a thread, the less likely it is to actually amount to anything.

Who is going to institute putting people in these camps if martial law does take place? I don't picture our own soldiers going against the grain of the people so the government can put people in cages.

This will without a doubt lead to a revolution if this takes place.

If we are dealing in the hypothetical...

Possible scenarios:

-With rising debt and mass foreclosures, these camps are seen as an amazing gift from the government protecting the people and giving them a roof over their heads.

- In the even of a major SHTF natural disaster, these become holding areas for displaced persons.

- Likewise, in the event of the collapse of the Mexican government, these become mass camps for displaced persons

- In the event of an outbreak of disease, these become quarantine zones

Sinister Scenarios:

- There is a crackdown on those who are breaking the "law" by opposing new regulations... and those who post on forums like this one. Dissent will be the highest form of treason

- Martial law is imposed (due to a whole host of reasons... war, aliens, natural disasters... take your pick), those who are in strategic areas are evacuated for their safety to guarded locations.

BUT... The most likely scenario is the economic collapse/ housing-for-all. This will seem benevolent, until they shut the gates.
