FEMA Exercises Include Foreign Troops Practicing on U.S. Soil
July 29, 2009 by Bob Livingston
This week the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been conducting its annual National Level Exercise program to prepare governmental agencies to respond to emergencies. But this year’s exercise has ominous underpinnings: it is the first to focus exclusively on terrorism protection and planning, and, for the first time, foreign troops are being trained to respond to emergencies in the U.S.
That’s right, troops from Australia, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom are being trained in Washington, D.C., Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas to help impose martial law in the event of a terrorist incident in the U.S.
This from FEMA’s own website: “This scenario enables participating senior officials to focus on issues related to preventing terrorist events domestically and protecting U.S. critical infrastructure… Exercises such as NLE 09 are an important component of national preparedness, helping to build an integrated federal, state, tribal, local and private sector capability to prevent terrorist attacks, and rapidly and effectively respond to, and recover from, any terrorist attack or major disaster that occurs. The full-scale exercise offers agencies and jurisdictions a way to test their plans and skills in a real-time, realistic environment and to gain the in-depth knowledge that only experience can provide. Participants will exercise prevention and information sharing functions that are critical to preventing terrorist attacks.”
Of course, we live in a world where an attack is possible any time from Islamo-fascist terrorists who are desperate to hit America whenever and wherever they can. And Timothy McVeigh’s bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma in 1995 is an example of what domestic terrorists can do (though evidence uncovered by reporters indicated an Iraqi connection that the government never pursued).
But don’t forget that your government may consider you a terrorist as well. Do you believe in the second amendment to the U.S. Constitution? Terrorist. Do you believe in a limited government? Terrorist. Do you believe in state’s rights? Terrorist. Do you oppose abortion? Terrorist. Do you oppose illegal immigration? Terrorist. Former member of the military? Terrorist.
These descriptions are right out of a special assessment issued by the Department of Homeland Security entitled: Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.
And then there is this: Two bills pending in Congress sponsored by Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL). That’s the same Alcee Hastings who, while a judge, was impeached by a Democrat-controlled Congress 18 years ago by a vote of 413-3 for conspiring to accept bribes. The good citizens of Florida’s House District 23 then elected him to represent them the next year to a seat he still holds.
The two bills are HR 645 and HR 2647. What do they do?
HR 645 requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish no fewer than six national emergency centers on military installations. These are designed, according to the bill’s language, to provide temporary housing and humanitarian assistance in case of an emergency or national disaster. And one clause of the bill reads: “to meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security.”
And Hastings’ other bill, HR 2647, gives the Attorney General the power to determine who or what is a hate group.
We touched on the possibility of foreign or United Nations troops enforcing laws on American soil in conjunction with U.S. census takers recording Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates, Census Workers Marking GPS Coordinates of U.S. Homes, June 19.
Now to connect the dots: Foreign troops brought to the U.S. use GPS coordinates to locate and arrest domestic terrorists (as defined by Attorney General) and taken to military installations where they are held in detention in concentration camp-style facilities.
As the march toward fascism continues and civil unrest grows, who knows what the government boys and girls might try next?
