A commentary on this article:
Rule by fear or rule by law?
Lewis Seiler,Dan Hamburg
Monday, February 4, 2008
“The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating
any charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgment of his peers, is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all
totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist.”
– Winston Churchill, Nov. 21, 1943
Since 9/11, and seemingly without the notice of most Americans, the
federal government has assumed the authority to institute martial law,
arrest a wide swath of dissidents (citizen and non-citizen alike), and detain people without legal or constitutional recourse in the event of “an
emergency influx of immigrants in the U.S., or to support the rapid
development of new programs.”
Beginning in 1999, the government has entered into a series of single-bid
contracts with Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) to
build detention camps at undisclosed locations within the United States.
The government has also contracted with several companies to build
thousands of rail cars, some reportedly equipped with shackles, ostensibly to transport detainees.
According to diplomat and author Peter Dale Scott, the KBR contract is
part of a Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of “all removable aliens” and “potential terrorists.”
Fraud-busters such as Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Los Angeles, have
complained about these contracts, saying that more taxpayer dollars
should not go to taxpayer-gouging Halliburton. But the real question is:
What kind of “new programs” require the construction and refurbishment of detention facilities in nearly every state of the union with the capacity to house perhaps millions of people?
Sect. 1042 of the 2007 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), “Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies,” gives the executive the power to invoke martial law. 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 Military Commissions Act of 2006, rammed through Congress just
before the 2006 midterm elections, allows for the indefinite imprisonment
of anyone who donates money to a charity that turns up on a list of
“terrorist” organizations, or who speaks out against the government’s policies. The law calls for secret trials for citizens and non-citizens alike.
Also in 2007, the White House quietly issued National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD-51), to ensure “continuity of government” in the event of what the document vaguely calls a “catastrophic emergency.” Should the president determine that such an emergency has occurred, he and he alone is empowered to do whatever he deems necessary to ensure “continuity of government.” This could include everything from canceling elections to suspending the Constitution to launching a nuclear attack.
Congress has yet to hold a single hearing on NSPD-51.
U.S. Rep. Jane Harman, D-Venice (Los Angeles County) has come up with a new way to expand the domestic “war on terror.” Her Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 (HR1955), which passed the House by the lopsided vote of 404-6, would set up a commission to “examine and report upon the facts and causes” of so-called violent radicalism and extremist ideology, then make legislative recommendations on combating it.
According to commentary in the Baltimore Sun, Rep. Harman and her
colleagues from both sides of the aisle believe the country faces a native
brand of terrorism, and needs a commission with sweeping investigative
power to combat it.
A clue as to where Harman’s commission might be aiming is the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, a law that labels those who “engage in sit-ins, civil disobedience, trespass, or any other crime in the name of animal rights” as terrorists. Other groups in the cross hairs could be anti-abortion protesters, anti-tax agitators, immigration activists, environmentalists, peace demonstrators, Second Amendment rights supporters … the list goes on and on. According to author Naomi Wolf, the National Counter-terrorism Center holds the names of roughly 775,000 “terror suspects” with the number increasing by 20,000 per month.
What could the government be contemplating that leads it to make
contingency plans to detain without recourse millions of its own citizens?
The Constitution does not allow the executive to have unchecked power
under any circumstances. The people must not allow the president to use the war on terrorism to rule by fear instead of by law.

Washington Post: Obama Endorses Indefinite Detention Without Trial
Camp FEMA – Will You Go Quietly?
FEMA camps: Not just for April fools anymore
Undercover FBI agent Larry Grathwohl told us of people whom he described in this way:
Obama has close friends in the weather underground (Google Bill Ayers) http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&aq=1&oq=%22bill+ayers&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4ADBR_enUS229US229&q=bill+ayers+obama
Is it reasonable to assume that they have given up this plan now that they control the Whitehouse?————————————-
Army Regulation 210-35
Civilian Inmate Labor Program
14 January 2005 Unclassified
This new regulation is dated: 9 December 1997
Be sure to read Chapter 3:
Establishing Civilian Inmate Prison Camps on Army Installations
Changing Commands: The Betrayal of America’s Military (Paperback) by John F. McManus (autographed copies available)
An excerpt from “The Gulag Archipelago” … on how to resist fascism & tyranny. The lesson that is just as important today as it was half a century ago.
“During an arrest, you think since you are not guilty, how can they arrest you? Why should you run away? And how can you resist right then? After all, you’ll only make your situation worse; you will make it more difficult for them to sort out the mistake.
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family?
Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?
The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! We did not love freedom enough. Every man always has handy a dozen glib little reasons why he is right not to sacrifice himself.”
MULTIPLE URLS (ONE IS FROM THE ARMY ITSELF):
THIS IS THE ONE THAT IS ONE THE ARMY’S OWN WEB PAGE:
Why does the US Army have regulations for running a concentration camp?
FEMA inquired to where mass graves could be placed in the county and would they accept bodies from elsewhere.
Concentration Camps in USA?
Who believes that this is true? You judge it for yourself.
Here is a video that I have no way of verifying. After the high level of interest that has been expressed, I have concluded that people should at least have the chance to judge it for themselves. These videos are presented WITHOUT ANY CREDITS BEING GIVEN. These videos are supposedly produced by a CIA agent; who found his OWN NAME on a list of people to be liquidated, and then decided to tell the public. The voice is electronically altered. You judge it for yourself.
Even though we cannot prove that this is authentic we can notice that it is consistent with the facts that are known to be true. We also have to wonder what would be the motive for presenting it, if it is false.

Unhidden Agendas: Off To Camp FEMA
Concentration Camps being built for U.S citizens
This has happened in many other places.
Of course, “It can’t happen here”. Right?
Personally, I am not going anywhere.
BUT if I wind up in a concentration camp, I am not going to have to remember a day when I should have done more to defend liberty.
I will save this country or die trying.
Oliver North Questioned On Plan to Suspend Constitution
List of concentration and internment camps:
The Guinness book of world records shows the largest mass killings in the history of man kind to have happened in China, under Mao.
The Guinness book of world records shows the largest slave labor camps to be Russian.
One FOURTH of the population of Cambodia was murdered in OUR TIME.
There is always a government shill who is ready to tell us that we should not believe what we see with our own eyes. His usual routine is to tell us that there is something magic about our time, or our location that makes it different from all other times and places. Sometimes he will claim that a new technology makes us safe. Governments are usually ahead of the little people on making use of new technologies.
This happens over and over again, and the main reason that it happens over and over again is because people will not face the simple horrible reality, and deal with it.
People are predisposed to ignore a horrible reality.
Even people who KNOW that this happens over and over again just keep saying “It can’t happen here.”
This is pure madness, but it is also sometimes the result of clever government propaganda. The government shills will spin the awareness of the people into ignoring the horrible reality.
It does not matter if we are hearing pure madness or clever government propaganda. In either case it is fatal to deal with government shills or ignorant dreamers.
The usual procedure is that ten or twenty storm troopers take one man, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. If he still has a gun, his gun never comes out, because it happens too fast. He does not even wake the neighbors. Usually he thinks that he will be able to work it out in court.
Since an entire ARMY of storm troopers focuses on one town at a time,
the next morning thousands of people are gone.
WHOEVER IS LEFT IS SCARED TO DEATH, AND THEY ARE JUST GLAD THAT THEY WERE NOT TAKEN. The people in the next town never know what happened until it is their turn. Communications systems “fail” as soon as it begins.
Tell those people who just keep saying “It can’t happen here” to talk with an American Indian or a Japanese American. It has ALREADY happened here.
Increases in technology work to the benefit of tyranny. High tech systems cost too much for the little people, but not too much for government. Ask what is left of the Branch Davidians in Waco.
At the time that the Feds came to snatch Elian Gonzalez every cell phone stopped working. They can also turn off electricity and come in with night vision equipment. Battery operated strobe lights might be a good purchase. Do not be quiet. Sound an alarm. Wake the neighbors. Loud sirens of security systems, fog horns or bells might be nice.
We did AN OLD POST ON THE SUBJECT OF MARTIAL LAW:
Watch this video and hear these exact words from Rep Michael Burgess 26th District of Texas:
“Mr. Speaker I understand that we are under martial law, as declared by the Speaker last night!”
Rep. Burgess: Congress under Martial Law to pass banker bailout bill
What we chose to ignore – the plans to suspend the constitution
Foreign Troops Gearing Up for Martial Law In America
How Long Will Americans Stay Apathetic To The Reality
Top Ten Signs Your Country May Be Going Fascist
Naomi Wolf, author of “The End of America”
a somewhat humorous discussion of a serious subject
Ray Taliaferro – Directive 51 Dictator Bush
One spin that is being put forth is the assertion that “martial law” was just a figure of speech. This assertion is that Rep Michael Burgess was referring to martial law under the rules of Congress. Look at the passion of Rep Michael Burgess and see if he could possibly be responding to a “figure of speech”, or some of the rules of Congress.
A part of this spin is that the idea that this martial law only applies to the Congress, not to the American people.
Would this really be important if this was true? This is like being told that you are not being killed, BUT you are just having your heart removed.
If you know nothing else about Roman history you know that Caesar left the Senate functioning as a semblance of the old Republic.
The important change was that the only function of the Senator was to do exactly as Caesar said to do.
“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny. “
What do we have if the only function of the Senator is to do exactly as Caesar says to do?
Watch the rest of the videos on this message.
You will find a full legal definition including the specific executive orders and statutes,
which provide for martial law over the whole American people.
In this video: What we chose to ignore
You will see YET ANOTHER discussion (in the SENATE) about the plans to suspend the constitution. You will see quite a bit of obfuscation about this using the claim that this subject is “classified”. Everything about the creation of tyranny is always “classified”.
It is not at all ambiguous.
The Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, and a few hundred Executive Orders that are detailed in the videos, were not passed by Pelosi. Pelosi simply invoked these. If you look and see who it was that put these things in place you will know that this has nothing to do with partisan politics. The enabling legislation is all in place.
Watch this one:
I thought it was interesting to learn that Hitler had a law that said the same thing, and that Hitler’s law was ALSO CALLED directive 51.
By the way: Most dictatorships are created as a “temporary emergency” measure.
Life is temporary.
Martial law is not a piece of paper.
Martial law is not an edict from on high.
Martial law is not possible unless the people accept it.
Wake the people.
It is not enforceable, just because they say so.
They do not even have the courage to say so openly.
It is “classified” and only being said to the conspirators who are supposed to implement it. The plans to suspend the constitution have always been “classified”
as you can see in the video where Col. is questioned about it:
6. Video of Undercover FBI agent Larry Grathwohl telling how he sat in on the meeting discussing liquidation (Internment Resettlement) of Americans in “re-education camps”.
7. Videos before the House and Senate showing testimony on the plans to declare martial law.
Oliver North Questioned On Plan to Suspend Constitution
8. HR 645: To Authorize & Legalize FEMA Camps right from the federal site
9. Obama Endorsing Indefinite Detention Without Trial
DO YOU THINK THAT WE ARE IN TROUBLE YET?
Ask those who lived in Nazi Germany how they could let the holocaust happen, and they usually claim that they did not know. The fact is: there is nothing that would have ever caused them to know. If they had toured Auschwitz, and helped load bodies into the crematorium they would STILL not know. Like being told that you have a fatal disease, DENIAL is the usual first response to news that is too horrible to consider. It looks as though there are some people who will still be claiming that there are no concentration camps after they are IN ONE OF THEM.
STILL DO NOT BELIEVE THAT THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING?
You can go on for ever finding reasons not to believe something that is too horrible to leave you feeling happy BUT ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS:
WHY IS THE US Army National Guard HIRING “Internment / Resettlement Specialists“?
Thomas Jefferson said:
“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”
We add this:
“The battle for liberty is never won, and is never lost.
The battle for liberty always continues.
It is never too late, and it is never soon enough, to defend freedom.
No matter how enslaved we are, we always have hope.
No matter how free we are we are never safe.
NOTHING EVER LIMITS THE GOVERNMENT, EXCEPT THE PEOPLE.
Any generation that fails to defend freedom will lose it.
The next generation will have to shed blood to gain it back.
When the defense of liberty becomes a crime, tyranny is already in force. At that point failure to defend liberty makes slavery at certainty.” John Perna

The National Security Agency is the only part of the government that actually LISTENS to you. Do you wish that the government would read the Constitution? Just email it privately to your friends. What we formerly called “freedom of speech” we now call the “right to remain silent.” BUT they will now claim that you DO NOT HAVE the right to remain silent… if THEY are asking the questions.
The Patriot Act is constitutionally illegal, but was signed into law takes away your rights and turns them into privileges, which the government can grant or take away at will. If you remember we were told that this would just be temporary. Now it has been made permanent. But no one protested did they?
