Government spending billions on detention camps.
This so important that I am sending this to everyone I can think of
The provision of the Trading with the Enemies Act of 1917, as modified on March 9, 1933 (search Congressional Record, March 9, 1933, Emergency Banking Act, Trading with the Enemies Act), to include American citizens as enemies is now about to be more fully implemented. (BTW, this is the “secret” provision that Obama used to justify the murder of an American citizen) With this new proposed law, I suppose that they have to fill those camps that Haliburton built to justify their $435M cost. The camp, just southwest of Fairbanks, Alaska, by itself, can hold 2M people; and, during the winter, I bet you can turn over the population every 2 weeks or so. That’s better than what the Nazi’s accomplished. There are approximately 800 camps throughout the United States, fully staffed but currently sitting empty, Alaska being the largest. These were established under Rex-84, Operation Cable Splicer and Operation Garden Plot, by executive orders of the Reagan administration (Google for more information).
Do nothing and this is what you are facing for you and your family.
Senate Moves To Allow Military To Intern Americans Without Trial
NDAA detention provision would turn America into a “battlefield”
Saturday, November 26, 2011
The Senate is set to vote on a bill next week that would define the whole of the United States as a “battlefield” and allow the U.S. Military to arrest American citizens in their own back yard without charge or trial.
“The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself,” writes Chris Anders of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office.
Under the ‘worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial’ provision of S.1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which is set to be up for a vote on the Senate floor Monday, the legislation will “basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who supports the bill.
The bill was drafted in secret by Senators Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), before being passed in a closed-door committee meeting without any kind of hearing. The language appears in sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA bill.
“I would also point out that these provisions raise serious questions as to who we are as a society and what our Constitution seeks to protect,” Colorado Senator Mark Udall said in a speech last week. One section of these provisions, section 1031, would be interpreted as allowing the military to capture and indefinitely detain American citizens on U.S. soil. Section 1031 essentially repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 by authorizing the U.S. military to perform law enforcement functions on American soil. That alone should alarm my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, but there are other problems with these provisions that must be resolved.”
This means Americans could be declared domestic terrorists and thrown in a military brig with no recourse whatsoever. Given that the Department of Homeland Security has characterized behavior such as buying gold, owning guns, using a watch or binoculars, donating to charity, using the telephone or email to find information, using cash, and all manner of mundane behaviors as potential indicators of domestic terrorism, such a provision would be wide open to abuse.
“American citizens and people picked up on American or Canadian or British streets being sent to military prisons indefinitely without even being charged with a crime. Really? Does anyone think this is a good idea? And why now?” asks Anders.
The ACLU is urging citizens to call their Senator and demand that the Udall Amendment be added to the bill, a change that would at least act as a check to prevent Americans being snatched off the streets without some form of Congressional oversight.
Under the National Defense Authorization Act bill, no declaration of martial law is necessary since Americans would now be subject to the same treatment as suspected insurgents in places like Afghanistan and Iraq.
If you thought that the executive assassination of American citizens abroad was bad enough, now similar powers will be extended to the “homeland,” in other words, your town, your community, your back yard.
Six years ago I did the numbers on the Fairbanks detention camp to find out if such a thing is possible. The numbers tell a gruesome story outrivaling anything Hitler could dream up. In order to take care of 2-million people and feed them this is what you need. For example, if you employed half the people in the entire state of Alaska 2-mllion divided by 350,000 = 5714 people. There is no way that one person could take care of 5714 people so obviously something is drastically wrong here.
Who will take care of the dogs and cats owned by 2-million people? Where is that food going to come from? Are they going to kill all the dogs, cats and parakeets, rabbits, ducks, hamsters, gineypigs, snakes, and fish owned by 2-million people. What is the government thinking? Where are they going to get the soldiers to round up all the people to fill 800 detention camps?
Now let’s see how much food 2-million people would need to keep them alive. If you rationed the people to 1/2 pound of dried food a day you would need 1-million pounds of food a day. Where is this food going to come from? Say for instance, you brought a ship into Anchorage once a month carrying 30-million pounds of rice you might be able to keep them alive for a little while. However there is not enough people to cook 1-million pounds of rice a day. Where would you get the energy come from to cook 1-million pounds of rice each day?
Say for example, you charted jet airplanes to fly two million pounds of food into Fairbanks each day to keep the people alive, how many 747 plane loads would it take. Two million pounds is 1000 tones. Each plane can carry about 120,000 pounds or about 60-tons of food so you would need 17 plane loads each day flying into Fairbanks to feed the people. Where would the 1000 tons of food come from. Is there enough grain stored in Louisiana and how long would the supply last. What is on the government’s mind? Why did they build the 800 detention camps?
