DRILLS Practice FORCED VACCINATIONS!

"Bird Flu Pandemic Exercise" Drill in Anderson, Arkansas on June 14, 2006
(with audio, more comments from Pastor, newspaper articles and photos, plus more information to come on this soon. Keep checking this post for updates.)
White crosses (huge plus signs) are showing up on highways and roads, parking lots, including WalMart parking lots, in many places, and will probably be all over the U.S. Keep on the lookout for these crosses and take pictures, note locations / addresses /intersections where you see these. They are for helicopter landings so that the NWO's minions can take over during any emergency / false emergency / martial law / roundup of citizens, including those who "know too much", and those who are on the red, blue, and green lists. Churches and Pastors around the U.S. are working with FEMA and Homeland Security to coerce the people to do what the government demands, including planning to seize our property, animals, food, water, supplies, vehicles, guns, and people! There are laws against hoarding food, water, supplies, etc.
WalMarts, Super WalMarts, and Targets, SuperTargets, along with schools, churches, will most likely be used for forced vaccinations, forced drugging, processing of citizens, quarantining, relocation, etc.
Information is included regarding Target Department store logo and its occult meanings as well as the fact that they were caught selling White Supremacist clothing a few years ago.
There is a program called "Pills in People's Palms in 48 Hours" (PPP). This is being practiced throughout the U.S. and probably the world, during drills, and at WalMart stores, etc. Pastor "Revere" states that WalMart stores will be where this program will be carried out when the real thing happens. There have also been reports of practices taking place at WalMarts where M&M's were used as a drill in place of drugs.

There is massive military activity in and around the Desoto National Forest of Mississippi. Local eye-witnesses tell of Red Dawn-like scenarios with foreign military forces conducting roadblock checkpoints. These photos were sent to Alex Jones by one of his radio listeners.
This is obviously some type of detention/training camp for American and Eastern block forces.
Front Entrance to SFOR Base. The speed limit sign is in kilometers, not miles.
(40 kilometers is around 25 M.P.H,).
Wide shot of the entrance to the camp. Notice the sign is in English and Russian, (enlargement of sign below). The arrows point out concertina (razor wire), a weapons collections station and concrete barracudas.
A slight zoom in on the sign at the entrance. Notice the text is in both English and Russian. English text reads: "SFOR Checkpoint".
To the left of the entrance, you can see a gun tower and search lights. Concertina (razor wire) and a 10' wall surrounds the facility.
Another shot of the camp shows a watch tower and guard shack. Here again you see the razor wire and dirt wall that surround the complex.
A shot of the guard shack and watch/gun tower from a different/closer angle. Notice how much razor wire is in use.
This shot shows a portable prison move in on trucks, as well as another gun tower and more search lights.
A close-up of the portable prison.
Here is a large tent facility in a remote area deep behind the razor wire.
Another shot of the tent city. You can see that sandbags surround all housing in the area.
The listener who sent these photos estimates the facility to be about 40 Acres in size.
This photo shows another tower and more searchlights.

FEMA Plans To Use Pastors as Pacifiers
in Preparation For Martial Law
Nationwide initiative trains volunteers to teach congregations to "obey the government" during seizure of guns, property, forced inoculations and forced relocation
Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | May 24 2006
(Excerpts):
"We get the the picture that we're going to be standing at the end of some farmer's lane while he's standing there with his double barrel, saying we have to confiscate your cows, your chickens, your firearms," said Pastor Revere.
The Pastor elaborated on how the directives were being smoke screened by an Orwellian alteration of their names.
"They're not using the term 'quarantine' - this is the term they're going to be using - it's called 'social distancing' don't you like that one," said the Pastor.
He also highlighted how detention camps had been renamed to give them a friendly warm veneer.
"Three months ago it was quarantine and relocation centers and now it's 'community centers' and these are going to be activated at the local schools," he said.
Pastor Revere outlined the plan to carry out mass vaccination and enforced drugging programs in times of crisis such as a bird flu outbreak.
"In the event of an outbreak or a bio-terrorist attack, there'd be a mass vaccination....they have a program nationwide 'Pills in People's Palm In 48 Hours'(PPP)," said the Pastor, who was told that Walmart had been designated as the central outlet of this procedure.
Pastor Revere said that many attendees believed in the necessity of the program and were completely unaware to the motivations behind its true purpose and were offered incentives to become volunteers such as preferential treatment and first access for themselves and their families to vaccines and food shipments in times of emergency.
Which roads to close off after martial law was declared had also already been mapped out.

PROGRAM: Alex Jones
GUEST: Pastor "Revere"
DATE: May 24, 2006 - A Pastor (Alias- Pastor Revere) has come forward to blow the whistle on a nationwide FEMA program which is training Pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to "obey the government" in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation.

The portion below is regarding ANOTHER> Pastor who has come forward,
named Pastor Paul Collins:
UPDATED 9/12/06:
Pastor Collins has also seen crosses, (plus signs), being painted with white paint, on the ground, in Anderson, Arkansas. He approached a man who was painting one and asked him what he was doing. The painter replied that he was doing this for Homeland Security in case of emergency, to show helicopters where to land. The audio as well as written information of Pastor Collins states that he was told by local law enforcement that the town could be shut down in 30 to 45 minutes with the use of multiple helicopters landing! A source has reported confirmation of more crosses seen appearing in Springdale, Arkansas. There has also been a report of these crosses seen in a WalMart parking lot by another source in MO.
Places where these crosses may / or are likely to appear: on parking lots, roads, highways, pinch points, (places where 4 lane roads funnel down to 2 lanes or where 2 lanes funnel down to one lane), also near or on cloverleafs coming off of highways, etc., where there are no overhead wires / power lines, etc. to interfere with helicopters landing. They are probably also being painted on roofs of buildings as well. If anyone can look for these and get pics with addresses of intersections and roads where these can be found anywhere across the country, that would be great!

Update: 9/14/06:
*Here is an article which appeared in the newspaper in Pastor Paul Collins' area which talks about these white crosses appearing on local highways and roads.

A Pastor has come forward to blow the whistle on FEMA:
Pator Revere (name changed)
A Pastor has come forward to blow the whistle on FEMA
Wed May 31, 2006 00:37

Official documents here. (PDF)

A Pastor has come forward to blow the whistle on a nationwide FEMA
program which is training Pastors and other religious
representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their
congregations to "obey the government" in preparation for a
declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and
forced relocation.
This program is a nationwide initiative and a literal Soviet model
whereby the churches are being systematically infiltrated by
government volunteers and used as conduits for martial law training
and conditioning. The Pastor was told that over 13,000 counties were
already on board.
FEMA related to the Pastors that quarantines, martial law and forced
relocation were a problem for state authorities when enforcing
federal mandates due to the "cowboy mentality" of citizens standing
up for their property and second amendment rights as well as farmers
defending their crops and livestock from seizure.
It was stressed that the Pastors needed to preach subservience to
the authorities ahead of time in preparation for the round-ups and
to make it clear to the congregation that "this is for their own
good."
Pastors were asked to make a pledge or an affirmation during the
meeting to fulfil the roles ascribed to them by FEMA. They were
given assurances that they would be covered by full compensation in
the event of resisters injuring them during property seizures and
round-ups.

Pastor Butch Paugh- May 23, 2006
About three months ago, I was invited to become a part of a group
implementing federal FEMA / Homeland Security directives in our
county. I couldn't pass that up!
Lots of interesting and bothersome info being discussed at these
meetings...
Local FEMA's ("across the US" according to a spokesman at our local
meeting) are gathering Ministers, (Pastors), to help in the event of
a "declaration of Martial Law or like police action following a
declared emergency or quarantine due to an act of bioterrorism".
The discussion centered around the need of 'locals' to "quell the
cowboy mentality" of farmers who may have their stock or crops
confiscated and subsequently destroyed.
FEMA and other Disaster Agencies (NVOAD in particular):
(
www.nvoad.org) are training volunteers in a "Peer to Peer" program.
That program trains people to assist FEMA in a neighborhood setting--
teams reach out to neighbors in a declared emergency and "get their
neighbors to obey authorities". According to our spokesman,
Ministers will be especially helpful because "you guys and gals can
use Romans 13".

One more IMPORTANT note:
If you are familiar with red, blue, and green lists and what they are allegedly all about, here is some chillingm> information. If not, do an online search for these terms:
A Super Target store in Florida has overhead signs all over the store in specifically RED, BLUE, AND GREEN! Different sections of the store are designated with these same colors! This may mean that these stores, and probably WalMart, will be used as "processing centers" for those on the "red, blue, and green lists." There are 31 checkout registers with big red signs with white numbers on them. Target colors / target symbol is red and white. This "target" symbol is used by Freemasons and is called the "point within the circle". This company is tied to Freemasons. These symbols can be found on Target signs, hundredsm> of them on their shopping bags, on products made by the store, and on the race car they sponsor. It's even found on the dog used in their commercials - notice the circle around the dog's eye? That's the same "point within the circle" symbol!
*SEE INFO. BELOW regarding what the "point within the circle" symbol which is Target's logo, means!
Update: 9/13/06:
Target Was Found In Past Years to be Selling White-Supremacist Clothing!
TARGET: Retailing White Supremacy
August 26, 2002 -- Thanks to Target, the nationwide department-store chain, students across the country may be heading back to school in hip-looking white supremacist regalia. The retail giant is selling shorts and baseball caps splashed with EIGHT EIGHT and 88 – white-power code for Heil Hitler, because THE LETTER H is the eighth letter of the alphabet.
Target customer Joseph Rodriguez, a 51-year-old video producer/director at the University of California-Davis, discovered the products in the chain’s downtown Sacramento store when he went shopping in late July.
A horror and science-fiction fan with youthful tastes, Rodriguez was immediately attracted to a blood-red pair of shorts he spotted in the racks, emblazoned with a collage of images and symbols including skulls.
“I just thought they were cool,” Rodriguez says. “But when I saw the 'EIGHT EIGHT,' I couldn’t believe it.”
Rodriguez had been clued into the meaning of “EIGHT EIGHT” just a few days earlier, when he watched “Turn It Down,” a VHI documentary about the rise of racist rock music in America. When he saw the “Heil Hitler” code, quite popular among young neo-Nazis, Rodriguez “recognized it immediately.”
Target officials have not been so quick on the uptake. Rodriguez alerted the store manager in Sacramento, but was told that the store simply carries whatever the department-store giant’s headquarters ships.
After returning home, Rodriguez contacted Target headquarters through the company’s Web site.
“Speaking as a member of a minority targeted by hate groups,” he wrote, “I find something of this nature being sold by Target appalling!” He signed the note, “Joe Rodriguez, Potential Former Customer.”
Once again, Target’s response was disappointing.
Update! Target Stores to Pull "88" Clothing from Shelves
August 27, 2002 -- The Target Corporation said today that it will remove shorts and hats with neo-Nazi symbols for "Heil Hitler" from its 1,100 stores.

"Though the shirts and shorts in question bore Target’s house brand, Brookter said the company does not know if the merchandise was actually designed by a Target employee."

Here's what the symbol means according to expert Dr. Cathy Burns:
This was copied from http://www.libertytothecaptives.net/books_Dr._Burns.html#occultsym">Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated
(Includes 728 Illustrations), by Dr. Cathy Burns
From:
Chapter 1.What is a Symbol?, p.27-30.
3.THE CIRCLE
The circle is the symbol of the universe. Eastern Star writer, Sarah Terry, mentions that the circle "is derived from the SUN."(2) Masonic author, J.S.M. Ward, explains that the circle also symbolizes God.(3) A Treasury of Witchcraft explains that "the circle that the magician draws on the ground... [is] to enforce demons to appear."(4) Shortly we'll discover who the god of Masonry is, so it will be evident which god the circle represents.
One particular symbol that is prevalent in Masonry utilizes the circle but a point is added inside the circle. It is called the "point within the circle." Harold Percival in his masonic book tells us: "The point and the circle are the same, the point is the infinitesimally small circle and the circle is the point fully expressed."(5) Since the point and the circle are the same, let's look at what Masons tell us about this specific symbol.
In the Masonic Quiz Book we find that this symbol "is from the Egyptian and is a symbolic sign for the SUN and the god OSIRIS."(6) Albert Mackey, a 33 Degree Mason, reveals that:
"The point within the circle is an intersting and important symbol in Freemasonry... The SYMBOL IS REALLY A BEAUTIFUL BUT SOMEWHAT ABSTRUSE ALLUSION TO THE OLD SUN-WORSHIP, and introduces us for the first time to that modification of it, known among the ancients as the WORSHIP OF THE PHALLUS."(7)
While some Masons are now trying to distance themselves from Mackey, he is nevertheless a HIGHLY RESPECTED MASON and is still looked up to today by many "higher" level Masons. In one Short Talk Bulletin about Mackey, lodge members were told: "Never did he read into a Masonic symbol a meaning which is not actually there,"(8) so we have every reason, then, to accept his interpretation that the point within a circle actually represents a phallus.
Albert Churchward, a Mason, says that: "The POINT WITHIN A CIRCLE IS ONE OF THE HIEROGLYPHIC SIGNS OF THE SUN-GOD, RA..."(9)
The point within the circle represents other gods in other mythologies. In India the dot or the point within the circle represents SHIVA(10) and in Egyptian mythology it represents HORUS(11) or OSIRIS(12). The Druids used the point within a circle as the emblem of their Supreme God who was ODIN.(13) Masons, by the way, admire the Druids and some of them even claim that Masonry came from Druidism. Of course, the Druids were occultic priests, practiced astrology, and offered human sacrifices.
So, like all the other symbols which we have looked at, we find that the circle and the point within the circle refer to a pagan god. Also, like the previous symbols, the point within the circle has a sexual connotation.
In one Short Talk Bulletin entitled "Point Within a Circle", which was to be read in Lodge meetings, we are told that this symbol is connected with SUN WORSHIP. This pamphlet states:
"'It was believed in India that at the general deluge everything ws involved in the common destruction except the male and female principles or ORGANS OF GENERATION, which were destined to produce a new race and to repeople the earth when the waters had subsided from the surface. The female principle, symbolized by the moon, assumed the form of a lunette, or crescent, while the male principle, symbolized by the sun, assumed the form of the lingam (or Phallus) and placed himself erect in the center of the lunette, like the mast of a ship. The two principles in this united form floated in the surface of the waters during the period of their prevalence on the earth, and thus became the progenitors of a new race of men'...
"The Indian interpretation makes the POINT THE MALE PRINCIPLE, THE CIRCLE THE FEMALE; the point became the sun and the circle the solar system which the ancient peoples thought was the universe because the sun is the vivifying, the life-giving principle, for all that lives."(14)
Albert Pike writes that Isis and Osiris:
"the Active and Passive Principles of the Universe, were commonly symbolied by the generative parts of man and woman... The Indian lingam was the union of both, as were the boat and mast and the point within a circle: all of which expressed the same philosophical idea as to the Union of the two great Causes of Nature, whcih concur, one actively and the other passively, in the generation of all beings..."(15)
The point within a circle has been employed in some rather unique ways. For instance, once Masonic book states: "The sign of the infamous Mafia or Cosa Nostra is not the 'black hand', as many believe, but the familiar dot within a circle."(16) We are further informed that:
"Because the true purposes of Illuminism were so shocking, Weishaupt constantly encouraged the SECRETIVE nature of the order. No member was ever allowed himself to be identified as an Illuminati. The words Illuminism or Illuminati were never to be used in correspondence, but were to be replaced by the astrological symbol for the sun, a circle with a dot in the middle."(17)
Another thing we need to look at is a circle surrounding the inverted five-pointed star. In The Question of Freemasonry we learn: "The inverted five-pointed star within a circle is the highest form of satanic expression, representing Baphomet, the God of Mendes, or the embodiment of Lucifer as god."(18) In fact, the PENTAGRAM ENCLOSED WITHIN THE CIRCLE IS A SIGN FOR THE GOD AND GODDESS.(19)
Actually, any occult symbol is considered to be even more powerful whenever a circle is used around another occultic symbol.(20)

Let's observe another logo. Target stores use the point within a circle for their symbol. As mentioned earlier, this sign is a representation of the phallus. The obelisk (e.g. the Washington Monument) is another phallic symbol. With this in mind, it is quite interesting that the Target stores are helping to restore the Washington Monument. They also have a punch out paper where you can build your own obelisk.(61) Just "coincidental"?

"It is remarkable that in all the ancient systems of MYTHOLOGY, the Great Father, or the MALE GENERATIVE PRINCIPLE was uniformly symbolized by a POINT WITHIN A CIRCLE. This emblem was placed by the Scandinavian priests and poets on the central summit of a RAINBOW, which was fabled to be a bridge leading from earth to heaven."(95)

Chapter 19. MASONIC AND EASTERN STAR SYMBOLS, p.340-342
Another name for a four-sided pillar is the obelisk.(124) Pillars have always been worshipped as gods.(125) In Egypt, the obelisk stood for the sun god.(126) The New Age Magazine had ana rticle by 33 degree Mason, Henry Ridgely evans, in which he said that Osiris, the god of the underworld, was also depicted in the form of a pillar.(127)
In fact, in Numbers: Their Occult Power and Mystic Virtues, we find that the lingam (the male sex organ) was an upright pillar.(128)
H.L. Haywood, another Mason, states:
"In some cases these crude rock pillars were thought to be the abodes of gods or demons; in others, homes of the ghosts; and often as symbols of sex. Of the
last-named usage one writer has said that 'pillars of stone, when associated with worship, have been from time immemorial regarded as symbols of the active and passive, the generative and fecundating principles.' In Egypt, Horus and Sut (Set) were regarded as two living pillars, twin builders and supporters of the heavens..."(129)
Masonic author, Rollin Blackmer, elaborates:
"The symbolism regarding solar worship indicated by the point within the circle has many variations, but one of the most primitive and natural was that the Sun was to be regarded as the male generative power of nature. To the ancient philosopher the origin and creation of life led to the contemplation of only one process, the generative act. The Sun God was certainly the generator of life, light, and heat, the male principle, and this was symbolically represented by the Phallus or Lingam, which was some picture, more or less veiled, of the human male generative organ. The most frequent illustration was of a pillar set up in the center of a circle. The circle just as distinctively represented the earth or female principle. The Sun was the Great Father. Under his begign influence all nature germinated, and the earth was the Universal Mother, in whose ample womb all these germs grew to maturity."(130)
In Our Phallic Heritage we are told that "All pillars or columns originally had a phallic significance, and were therefore considered sacred.(131) Pan, the goat god and god of sensuality, was often represented as an obelisk.(132)

A former witch gives some interesting information about the obelisk. He writes:
The obelisk is a long pointed four-sided shaft, the uppermost portion of which forms a pyrmadid. The word 'obelisk' literally means 'Baal's Shaft" or Baal's organ of reproduction. This should be especially shocking when we realize that we have a gigantic obelisk in our nation's capitol known as the Washington Monument."(133)
Of course, the Masons and Egyptians aren't the only ones who had high regard for the obelisk. In front of the Vatican stands the very same obelisk that once stood in Egypt!"(134) Ralph Woodrow explains:
"The very same obelisk that once stood at the ancient temple which was the center of Egyptian paganism, now stands before the mother church of Romanism! This seems like more than a mere coincidence".

When the children of Israel would forsake God, they turned to worshipping idols. One of the idols they worshipped was the obelisk. God had specifically forbidden them to do so. Leviticus 26:1 warns: "Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a STANDING IMAGE , neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down to it: for I am the Lord your God." They were also told that when they went into pagan nations, they "shall overthrow their altars, and BREAK THEIR PILLARS, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place. Ye shall not do so unto the Lord your God" (Deuteronomy 12:3-4). Many other such warnings are also in the Bible. The following references use the same Hebrew word for "pillar" but it is translated as "images". See: Exodus 23:24, 34:13; Deuteronomy 7:5, 16:22; I Kings 14:23; II Kings 10:26, 27, 17:10, 18:4, 23:14; II Chronicles 14:3, 31:1; Jeremiah 43:13; Hosea 10:1-2; and Micah 5:13.
Note: Capital letters from paragraph above are used as emphasis by Vetzine and do not appear as capital letters in the Bible.
How can anyone who truly loves the Lord belong to Masonry, the Eastern Star, or any other Masonically-affiliated organization when they so blatantly promote paganism? The Bible clearly states: "Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you" (II Corinthians 6:17).

The City of London financial services sector will next month test out how it would cope with a bird flu pandemic in an exercise run by finance industry regulators.
The Bank of England, the Financial Services Authority and the Treasury will organise the bird flu simulation event, which will run from October 13 to November 24.
More than 60 organisations from the financial services industry have been asked to take part.
These three bodies cooperate on business continuity planning for incidents that could cause major disruptions to the City of London financial services industry, one of the world's biggest financial centres and home to some of the world's biggest banks.
The simulation of a major crisis has become an annual event.
Last November, the Bank of England, the Treasury and the FSA -- known as the Tripartite Authorities -- carried out the world's biggest ever business endurance exercise to test the financial sector's ability to deal effectively with a major operational disruption.
This involved about 80 firms, including banks, brokerages and insurers, as well as the financial authorities and the police.
This time it is bird flu, which will be run as an "evolving scenario."
"The overall objective for the authorities is to improve their own and the sector's preparedness by providing an opportunity to review, test and update plans for managing a pandemic threat," the three authorities said on their website -- UK Financial Sector Continuity.
Major banks in the City of London have been gearing up to cope with a potential bird flu epidemic for months now.
Last year, for example, Citigroup, the world's biggest bank, set up an avian flu task force, combining business continuity, health services and security services.
During next month's exercise banks and financial services firms will receive regular updates on the severity of the pandemic, its effect on them and on the wider economy.
Banks will review if contingency plans they have made can actually cope in the face of rampant bird flu which will mean reduced staffing levels, disruption to transport, power and telecoms.
The authorities will publish a report on the exercise after it is completed.
The Bank of England, the Treasury and the FSA's business continuity systems were put into action last year during the suicide bomb attacks on London's transport system in July.
The three activated a secret Internet chatroom, which was set up in the wake of the September 11 bombings of the World Trade Centre in New York. This aims to keep lines of communication open between banks and the authorities during a crisis.
In July this year, the Bank of England also ran a seminar to examine how the $2 trillion (1.06 trillion pounds) a day foreign exchange market would cope with a sustained outage of the global currency payments system due to terror attacks or other disruptions.
http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/april2006/070406birdfludrill.htm">Bird Flu Outbreak Coincided With Drill
Foot and Mouth example should set alarm bells ringing if pandemic occurs
Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | April 7 2006
Britain's bird flu scare that officials are now warning could spread to other areas of Scotland coincided with an exercise that drilled a response to an avian flu outbreak. The drill included the involvement of Downing Street and the Ministry of Defence.
"The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in London was running it with control centres in Bury St Edmunds, Leeds, Cardiff and Gloucester," states the article.
"It also involved the Association of Chief Police Officers, the Environment Agency, Downing Street, the Ministry of Defence, and other government departments."
The drill revolved around a scenario where bird flu was discovered in two places in England and one in Wales.
Why is this important to note?
Staged-managed manufactured crises are always paralleled by drills of the same nature. This provides culpable deniability if any government agency is caught with their hands in the cookie jar. They can say it was just part of the drill.
Obviously, other organizations like the RSPCA and farming groups would have no knowledge of what the drill is really intended to achieve and at this stage it is just a coincidence. However, if the crisis were to escalate causing Blair's government to start restricting the movement of people then more serious questions would need to be asked. If the next three cases of bird flu popped up in Norfolk, south Wales and northern England, the same places as in the drill, then this would turn into a smoking gun.
Though a bird flu outbreak is in a different league to terrorist bombings, the outcome will eventually be very similar in terms of emergency police state measures rushed through to respond to the situation.
The Foot and Mouth disease spread like wildfire throughout the country as many accused the government of not doing nearly enough to contain it and the spring of 2001 in England was characterized by apocalyptic images of burning pyres (pictured above) dotted all over the countryside as over four million animals were slaughtered.

Britain again became a victim of bird flu paranoia today after a dead swan in Scotland tested positive for the H5N1 strain of bird flu. Since Sky News and BBC are reveling in the seriousness of all this it's pertinent and timely to recap on the real agenda behind bird flu.
Both the British and US governments have created policies of http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/february2006/010206detentioncamps.htm">quarantine> http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/february2006/010206detentioncamps.htm">http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/february2006/010206detentioncamps.htm> and internment procedures which they need to indoctrinate Joe public into going along with. In the first stage, limited biological panics will be metered upon the public (in Britain through Porton Down, the same people who brought you http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/1760689.stm">Foot and Mouth) http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/1760689.stm">http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/1760689.stm> in order to train them into producing the desired response. Those who are taken to temporary relief centers for their own safety will be treated kindly and released swiftly, putting to shame the outlandish protests of civil liberties advocates and Internet conspiracy theorists.
Bird flu is one more tool in the arsenal of Globalist Malthusian social Darwinists who believe it is their destiny to act as guardians to mother earth against the 'plague' of humanity and that brutal methods of population control are the only way to realize a new world order.

In another shining example of modern day corporate fascism, it was announced recently that Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root had been awarded a $385 million dollar contract by Homeland Security to construct detention and processing facilities in the event of a national emergency.

The language of the preamble to the agreement veils the program with talk of temporary migrant holding centers, but it is made clear that the camps will also be used "as the development of a plan to react to a national emergency."

Discussions of federal concentration camps is no longer the rhetoric of paranoid Internet conspiracy theorists, it is mainstream news.

The national ID card is also intended to be used for this purpose, just as the http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/june2004/062204ibmsued.htm">Nazis used early IBM computer punch card technology http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/june2004/062204ibmsued.htm to catalogue lists of homosexuals, gypsies and Jews before the round-ups began.

Those details remain on a database forever. To date, 119,000 names of political activists have been taken and this is a figure that will skyrocket once the post 7/7 figures are taken into account. At the height of the Iraq war protests, around a million people marched across the country. However, most of these people were taking part in a political protest for the first time and as a one off. Even if we take a figure of half, 500,000 people being politically active in Britain, that means that the government has already registered around a quarter of political activists in the UK.

In truth the number is probably above half because we are not factoring in those already on MI5 'subversive' lists and those listed after the 7/7 bombings, when the powers were used even more broadly.

The existence and development of internment camps are solely intended to be used to round up en masse and imprison 'political dissidents' (anyone who isn't prepared to lick government boots) after a simulated tactical nuke or biological attack on a major US or European city.
http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/january2006/310106patriot_act.htm">New Patriot Act Provision Creates Tighter Barrier to Officials at Public Events
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,183147,00.html">Kelley Beaucar Vlahos / Fox News | January 31 2006
WASHINGTON — A new provision tucked into the Patriot Act bill now before Congress would allow authorities to haul demonstrators at any "special event of national significance" away to jail on felony charges if they are caught breaching a security perimeter.
Sen. Arlen Specter , R-Pa., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sponsored the measure, which would extend the authority of the Secret Service to allow agents to arrest people who willingly or knowingly enter a restricted area at an event, even if the president or other official normally protected by the Secret Service isn't in attendance at the time.
The measure has civil libertarians protesting what they say is yet another power grab for the executive branch and one more loss for free speech.
"It's definitely problematic and chilling," said Lisa Graves, senior counsel for legislative strategy at the American Civil Liberties Union , which has written letters to the chairmen and ranking members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, pointing out that the provision wasn't subject to hearings or open debate.
Some conservatives say they too are troubled by the measure.
"It concerns me greatly," said Bob Barr, former U.S. prosecutor and Republican representative from Georgia. "It clearly raises serious concerns about First Amendment rights."
But not everyone agrees that rights are being trampled on by the additional provision. In fact, some say the ACLU is the problem when it comes to protecting national security.
Rocco DiPippo, a freelance writer for the conservative FrontPageMagazine.com and editor of The Autonomist Web log , said the ACLU has fought the government every step of the way over security measures following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
"Its opposition to Specter's reasonable proposal is simply more of the same," he said. "I can understand the concern that we should be suspicious of government, but we shouldn't adopt this mindset: 'government is evil.' This is just more hatred of (President) Bush."
Under current law, the Secret Service can arrest anyone for breaching restricted areas where the president or a protected official is or will be visiting, but the new provision would allow such arrests even after those VIPs have left the premises of any designated "special event of national significance." The provision would increase the maximum penalty for such an infraction from six months to one year in jail.
In a post-Sept. 11 world many non-political events have been designated National Special Security Events and would rise to the higher status. Examples of possible NSSEs are the Olympics or the Super Bowl. In 2004, the presidential inaugural balls and President Ronald Reagan's June funeral procession in Washington, D.C., were designated NSSEs.
According to government sources with knowledge of the legislation, Secret Service protection and law enforcement authority would extend beyond protecting a specific person, rather the event itself would become the "protectee."
Currently, non-violent demonstrators who enter restricted areas at such events previously would be arrested and charged by local law enforcement with simple trespassing, said Graves. Under the provision included in the new law, they will be charged with felonies by the Secret Service.
"It's a different consequence to people," she said.
"You are talking about giving the executive branch broader authority to create these exclusion zones which could cover broad areas and last for days [during an event ]," David Kopel, a constitutional expert with the Cato Institute, told FOXNews.com.
A spokesman at Specter's office said the senator was surprised by the clamor over the provision, which merely makes a technical change to clear up legal confusion over who has arresting authority at NSSEs. His office had no further comment on the provision. Committee Ranking Member Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., also declined comment. Republican and Democratic House Judiciary Committee leaders did not return calls for comment.
White House sources say the measure was not instigated by the administration and pointed out that it was a stand-alone bill that was rolled into the Patriot Act by Specter's office during House-Senate conference negotiations. White House spokeswoman Dana Perino told FOXNews.com that the White House would not comment on the intent of the measure, but that the president is concerned with preserving individual rights.
"President Bush is committed to protecting the American people's national security as well as their civil liberties," she said.
Secret Service representatives said the agency does not comment on pending legislation.
The Bush administration has been criticized in the past for what many say are tactics that keep protesters far away from official events and by employing stringent policies to ensure favorable audiences for the president.
Last year, three ticket-holding audience members at one of the president's Social Security events in Denver, Colo., were apprehended by a man who they said identified himself as Secret Service. The three were forced away from the event because of an anti-war sticker on the driver's car.
"[The administration] has certainly demonstrated a desire to have carefully-controlled events," said Graves.
John Pike, director of GlobalSecurity.org, an Alexandria, Va.-based clearinghouse for domestic and international security information, said he "could certainly understand why the Secret Service would want that legal authority," given the enormous burden of making venues safe for VIPs today.
"However, I think many people have concluded that the way it is being used has nothing to do with protecting the president from Usama bin Laden and everything to do with suppressing dissent and making sure the protesters don't get on TV," Pike said.
Bush is not the first president to flex his authority in this area, said Kopel, who pointed out that beginning with Reagan, presidents have created a larger security bubble and greater distance between themselves and dissenters at public events. The 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States just intensified the situation, he said.
"I think the concerns about free speech in areas where the president is speaking long pre-date Bush. They were an issue in the Clinton administration, the first Bush administration and began as an issue during Reagan," Kopel said. "I do think the ACLU has legitimate concerns about the breadth of the new language and how it could be applied."
Graves points out that conservative "pro-life" groups will be the target of the new provisions, too, a scenario that could raise the concerns for those who are typically critical of the ACLU, which she said is necessarily concerned about other provisions in the bill that impinge on civil liberties.
House and Senate leaders, who return to Capitol Hill this week, are trying to renew the Patriot Act by Friday. Democrats and four Republicans in the Senate who filibustered a final vote in December after raising concerns about preserving civil liberties instituted a short-term extension of the previous bill, which was set to expire on Dec. 31.
http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/january2006/310106IDprotester.htm">ID protester stopped and filmed under terror law will have police record for life
London Telegraph / Philip Johnston | January 31 2006
Comment: Ask yourself, why are the authorities so worried about peacful protest and the spread of information like in this case?
A campaigner against ID cards who was stopped under counter-terror laws while collecting signatures for a petition has been told by police that his details will be kept on file indefinitely.
Mark Wallace was outside the Labour Party conference in Brighton last autumn when he was detained under section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000. The measure gives officers wide powers to stop anyone in a designated area, whether or not they are acting suspiciously.
Mr Wallace, who is campaign manager for the Freedom Association, said he had subsequently asked Sussex police what they proposed to do with the record of the encounter and was told the written version would be permanently retained. A video of his detention would be held for seven years, even though he had done nothing wrong.
"One minute I was peacefully collecting signatures, and the next I had five policemen around me, one with a video camera recording my every move and another taking my personal details, address and so on," Mr Wallace said.
"It was bad enough that I was subjected to this unjustly, but why am I now registered for life as linked to anti-terrorist investigations, despite my innocence?"
Mr Wallace added: "It worries me that this could damage future travel plans or even attract suspicion in future cases, when all I have done is to use my freedom of speech. The fact that peaceful protest and petitioning is subject to police investigation is itself worrying, but a policy of keeping details of the innocent on file forever is an utter disgrace."
Christopher Gill, chairman of the Freedom Association, said: "These laws are terrifyingly wide ranging, and fail even to demand suspicion in order to stop someone and thus list them for life.
"They are being over-used, and innocent people are having their records marked as a result. The police are supposed to protect the innocent from the guilty, not smear their records arbitrarily."
During the Labour conference, 426 people were stopped under section 44 and none was charged or convicted. Official figures show that nationally 119,000 people were stopped under the powers between 2001 and early 2005, and only 1,515 of these were arrested. Figures for 2005 are expected to be far higher after the London bombings last July.
Section 44 bestows exceptional powers on the police to stop and search at random, once a particular geographical area has been designated by a chief officer as one that might be targeted by terrorists and authorised as such by the Home Secretary.
Sussex police confirmed that they held stop-and-search records indefinitely and videos for seven years. The Terrorism Act does not specify what should happen to the information.
While Labour was in Brighton, the whole of the city was a designated area. Unlike with normal stop-and-search powers, police are not required to have "reasonable suspicion" that an offence is being committed.
In his annual review of the Terrorism Act last year, Lord Carlile said the use of section 44 "could be cut by at least 50 per cent without significant risk to the public or detriment to policing".
During the 2005 general election, a group of train-spotters was detained and searched at Basingstoke station, which was on a list of possible terrorist targets drawn up by the Home Office.
Also at last year's Labour conference Walter Wolfgang, an octogenarian party member who was ejected from the main hall for heckling, was questioned under section 44.

GENEVA (AP) -- A Swiss court has cleared the way for Gypsies to sue IBM over allegations that the computer company's expertise helped the Nazis commit mass murder more efficiently, the plaintiffs' lawyer said Tuesday.
The Geneva appeals court disagreed with a lower court that refused to hear the case last year on grounds it lacked jurisdiction, said the Gypsies' lawyer, Henri-Philippe Sambuc.
A Gypsy group filed the lawsuit in Geneva because IBM's wartime European headquarters were in the city. They claim the office was IBM's hub for trade with the Nazis.
"IBM's complicity, through material or intellectual assistance to the criminal acts of the Nazis during World War II via its Geneva office, cannot be ruled out," said the appeals court ruling.
It cited "a significant body of evidence indicating that the Geneva office could have been aware that it was assisting these acts."
In its June 2003 ruling, the lower court said IBM only had an "antenna" in the Swiss city.
City archives, however, show that in 1936 IBM opened an office under the name International Business Machines Corporation New York, European Headquarters.
There was no immediate reaction to the ruling from IBM's Geneva lawyers, who have previously referred requests for comment to the company's U.S. headquarters. The ruling came before business hours at the IBM's New York base.
The company has said its German subsidiary, Deutsche Hollerith Maschinen GmbH -- or Dehomag -- was taken over by the Nazis before the Second World War, and it had no control over operations there or how Nazis used IBM machines.
Sambuc contends the company's Geneva office continued to co-ordinate Europe-wide trade with the Nazis, acting on clear instructions from world headquarters in New York.
The group represented by Sambuc -- Gypsy International Recognition and Compensation Action -- sued IBM for "moral reparation" and $20,000 US each in damages on behalf of four Gypsies from Germany and France and one Polish-born Swedish Gypsy. All five plaintiffs were orphaned in the Holocaust.
The campaigners began planning the lawsuit after U.S. author Edwin Black claimed in a book published in February 2001 that IBM punch-card machines enabled the Nazis to make their killing operations more efficient.
Black said the punch-card machines were used to codify information about people sent to concentration camps. The number 12 represented a Gypsy inmate, while Jews were recorded with the number 8. The code D4 meant a prisoner had been killed.
The Nazis are believed to have killed around 600,000 Gypsies, although Gypsy groups say the number could have been as high as 1.5 million.
"It does not appear inconsistent to conclude that the respondent (IBM) facilitated the task of the Nazis in their committing of crimes against humanity -- acts which were counted and codified by IBM machines," the ruling said.
IBM's German division has paid into Germany's government-industry initiative to compensate people forced to work for the Nazis during the war.
In April 2001, a class action lawsuit against IBM in New York was dropped after lawyers said they feared it would slow down payments from the German Holocaust fund. German companies had sought freedom from legal actions before committing to the fund.
The Geneva case is the first Holocaust-related action against IBM in Europe, Sambuc said. A city court will likely hear the lawsuit in the fall, unless IBM lodges an appeal at the Federal Tribunal, Switzerland's supreme court.
London Independent | November 24 2004
Plans to make every offence arrestable, including minor crimes such as littering or spraying walls with graffiti, were criticised yesterday by solicitors for giving the police excessive powers.
The proposal is contained in a Bill that includes the setting up of a national crime agency that is expected to become Britain's version of the FBI.
The Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill is expected to give the police many new powers including allowing officers to take DNA samples and fingerprints from minor offenders arrested on the street.
One of the controversial measures is to allow officers to arrest a suspect for any offence. At present, a police officer can only arrest someone suspected of an offence that could result in a prison sentence of at least five years.
Janet Paraskeva, the chief executive of the Law Society, which represents all solicitors in England and Wales, said: "The police would have a power to arrest however minor the suspected offence. That is not an appropriate balance between the liberty of the citizen and the needs of the police."
The Bill extends the powers of community support officers.
In addition it will create a new offence of incitement to religious hatred to protect faith groups - particularly Muslims - from hate attacks.
Police powers are also to be strengthened to combat harassment by animal-rights extremists against scientific and medical establishments that use animals. The Bill would strengthen the existing police power to prevent protesters from demonstrating outside people's homes.
The Bill is one of the few pieces of legislation that is likely to become law before the expected general election in May and highlights the importance the Government places on the measures, which are likely to win popular support.
Powers to test offenders on arrest rather than when charged is to be contained in the Drugs Bill. The Bill will give the police powers to tackle dealers who hide evidence or claim drugs are for personal use.

Okanogan County Commissioner Dave Schulz says he's convinced his county is a designated home for a "concentration camp'' in case of civil unrest. Schulz says he has copies of documents, although he hasn't been able to confirm the rumor.
Federal officials say they have no idea where the commissioner got the notion of civilian detention camps.
A Federal Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman says it sounds like an urban legend and a Pentagon spokesman says he's not aware of any planned camps in Okanogan County or elsewhere.
Rumors of planned U.S. detention facilities appear on dozens of Web sites.
Schulz says he thinks the plan has been written in the event of a national emergency where martial law is necessary, and hopes it never becomes necessary.

http://www.prisonplanet.com/080702camps.html">FEMA's Plan for Mass Destruction Attacks: Of Course It's True
Newsmax August 7 2002
Let me state for the record that FEMA is moving ahead with plans to create temporary cities that could handle millions of Americans after mass destruction attacks on U.S. cities.
Though the agency has denied the program to some of our readers and has made misleading claims about NewsMax's original story to members of the press, the basic facts of the story remain unchallenged.
In early July, NewsMax first reported in our e-mail news service, Insider Report, the story "FEMA Preparing for Mass Destruction Attacks on Cities," revealing that FEMA was seeking bids from three major real estate and/or engineering firms to help prepare for the creation of the emergency cities, using tents and trailers - if an urban area is attacked by NBC (nuclear, chemical or biological) weapons.
Since that report, several NewsMax readers and members of the press contacted FEMA and asked them if the NewsMax story was true.
These readers reported to us that FEMA has categorically denied the story.
For example, my friend Jonathan Kemp, who hails from an illustrious California family (his father was a director of Standard Oil of California), called FEMA's Washington office and was told by a public affairs officer, "The news report about FEMA building the temporary cities to house disaster refugees is totally bogus."
NewsMax, of course, told its readers it stood by the story.
In late July, I called FEMA and spoke with public affairs officer Chad Kolton.
I explained to Mr. Kolton that it was improper for the agency to claim that NewsMax had fabricated this story.
Mr. Kolton denied that there was any claim by FEMA that the NewsMax story was baseless, only that it was "factually inaccurate."
He made that claim without having read the NewsMax story, which he asked me to e-mail to him.
As I pointed out to Mr. Kolton, FEMA has put out a bid notice for the program to build the temporary cities (they call it "temporary disaster housing"). The bid is not only a matter of public record, it also is available on the federal government's Web site.
Note: You can read a synopsis of the bid by clicking here. A lengthier explanation of the program is available online at: http://www1.eps.gov/spg/FEMA/OFM/ORPD/Reference-Number-EMW-2002-TAC/listing.html
The Emergency Housing Cities
On June 19, FEMA posted a special bid notice for one of the agency's largest contract awards ever - offering contracting firms $300 million for a five-year contract to simply prepare plans to create temporary housing on a scale never before imagined, and then stand by.
This is reportedly one of the largest contracts ever awarded by FEMA for a disaster preparedness program.
The name of the program is entitled "Standby Technical Assistance for Disaster Related Operations."
The bid notice states, as NewsMax first reported, that three real estate/engineering firms will be selected for the program.
The firms will be required to provide "technical support, consultant and project management resources" with the specific duty to "provide project management resources and expertise to support the Disaster Housing Program."
According to the bid notice, the firms need to have professionals, including engineers, architects and other real estate-related experts.
According to a source familiar with the current bid, the program is a major expansion of a smaller program FEMA has had for temporary housing in case of disasters.
The Standby Technical Assistance program bid offering never mentions "mass destruction attacks" or terrorist preparedness.
Instead, the bid notice's "Statement of Work" sets out a broad mandate for the firms being contracted, stating that "The Contractor shall be required to provide support capability for all types of disasters with emphasis on riverine and coastal flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, and tsunamis."
The bid states: "... the firm must have at least one permanent and adequately staffed and equipped office located in the Washington Metropolitan area, and two (2) additional offices in other geographic locations within the United States with the capability supporting deployment operations in the event that one area is incapacitated."
The real purpose of the Standby Program was made clear to potential contractors at a meeting held on July 10 at the Department of Education headquarters in Washington.
FEMA officials met with the representatives of firms seeking the bids. Approximately 100 people attended the meeting.
FEMA officials made very clear that the purpose of one of the most massive undertakings in the agency's history was to prepare for potential mass destruction attacks on U.S. cities.
Sources who attended the meeting tell NewsMax that most of the meeting dealt with how the firms should handle biological, chemical and nuclear disasters.
After he had reviewed the NewsMax story, I again chatted with Mr. Kolton. He identified the factual "inaccuracies" in NewsMax's story.
One was that NewsMax reported the contracted firms need to be prepared for creating such cities by January of next year. Mr. Kolton said the firms only need be hired by January of 2003.
NewsMax reported that FEMA told contractors it had ordered tents and trailers for temporary housing. Mr Kolton said the tents and trailers have not been purchased yet. (That may be the case, but FEMA does currently possess tents and trailers for disaster housing.)
These are minor points - and a far cry from claiming the NewsMax story was "totally bogus" or "riddled with inaccuracies," as some members of the press have been told.
In fact, Mr. Kolton agreed that the program includes preparation for terrorist mass destruction attacks, though the FEMA bid notice specifically avoids using such language.
He stressed that the Standby Program is being implemented to prepare for "all types of disasters" including terrorist ones.
Asked why the bid notice conveniently forgot to mention the potential for terrorism, though it must be among the highest priorities for FEMA, he again stressed that the language does include that possibility - though the program's main focus, he said, is on natural disasters.
What natural disaster had caused such a need for the largest program of its kind ever in the history of FEMA?
In decades of emergency response, why, all of sudden, is FEMA set to spend $300 million just for architects and engineers over the next five years simply to be on "standby"?
This $300 million doesn't include the probable billions that would be needed for infrastructure and labor to implement the emergency cities.
What natural disaster would require FEMA to create emergency cities in different geographic areas of the U.S. at the same time?
Kolton responded that FEMA could foresee two Category 4 hurricanes slamming into two distinct parts of the East Coast at about the same time.
The evidence is clear that FEMA is preparing for mass destruction attacks. There is nothing wrong with this program, and in fact, the agency has a duty to disclose its plans to the public.
Far from panicking the public, I think the public would be happy to learn that the U.S. government - our government - is preparing for potential terrorist acts. FEMA should be applauded for thinking ahead. It has nothing to hide.

Halliburton sex slave trade criminals prepare camps for political dissidents

Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | March 1 2006
Bush administration and US army preparations to target American citizens and intern them in forced labor camps has vastly accelerated in the past month and commentators from all over the political spectrum are sounding the alarm bells that the round-ups may begin soon.
Once the bane of the media's stereotypical 'tin foil hat wearing' caricatures, concentration camps in America are now serious news and no one is laughing.
Following the news first given wide attention by this website, that Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root had been awarded a $385 million dollar contract by Homeland Security to construct detention and processing facilities in the event of a national emergency, the Alternet website put together an alarming report that collated all the latest information on plans to initiate internment of political subversives and Muslims after the next major terror attack in the US.
The article highlighted the disturbing comments of Sen. Lindsey Graham, who encouraged torture supporting Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to target, "Fifth Columnists" Americans who show disloyalty and sympathize with "the enemy," whoever that enemy may be.
It is important to stress that the historical precedent mirrors exactly what the Halliburton camp deal outlines. Oliver North's Reagan era Rex 84 plan proposed rounding up 400,000 refugees, under FEMA, in the event of "uncontrolled population movements" over the Mexican border into the United States.
The real agenda, just as it is with Halliburton's gulags, was to use the cover of rounding up immigrants and illegal aliens as a smokescreen for targeting political dissidents. From 1967 to 1971 the FBI kept a list of persons to be rounded up as subversive, dubbed the "ADEX" list.
The current terrorist suspect list was recently revealed to contain the names of 325,000 people. The government claimed that only a tiny fraction were American citizens living in America but when compared to the potential terrorist list in the UK, which under section 44 of the terrorism act has ensnared at least 119,000 people, most of them innocent protesters, the number is likely to be far higher. Britain's population is only 60 million compared to the US at 295 million.
Halliburton, through their KBR subsidiary, is the same company that built most of the major new detention camps in Iraq and Afghanistan. KBR have been embroiled in a human sex slave trade that their representatives have lobbied to continue.
We have a company that has been handed a contract to build prison camps in America that is engaged in trafficking young girls and women. Can this horror movie get any more frightening?
A much discussed and circulated report, the Pentagon's Civilian Inmate Labor Program, has recently been updated and the revision details a "template for developing agreements" between the Army and corrections facilities for the use of civilian inmate labor on Army installations."
The plan is clearly to swallow up disenfranchised groups likes prisoners and Muslims at first and then extend the policy to include 'Fifth Columnists,' otherwise known as anyone who disagrees with the government or exercises their Constitutional rights.
Respected author Peter Dale Scott speculated that the "detention centers could be used to detain American citizens if the Bush administration were to declare martial law."
Daniel Ellsberg, former Special Assistant to Assistant Secretary of Defense, called the plan, "preparation for a roundup after the next 9/11 for Mid-Easterners, Muslims and possibly dissenters. They've already done this on a smaller scale, with the 'special registration' detentions of immigrant men from Muslim countries, and with Guantanamo."
George Bush has declared himself to be dictator and to have supreme power over and above the limitations of the US Constitution. Bush administration officials like Alberto Gonzales have declared Bush to be "above the law." White House advisors are openly discussing the legality of crushing a child's testicles as part of the war on terror. Preparation for the internment of thousands of Americans who are 'disloyal' in times of emergency are afoot.
The next step is clearer than it has ever been. One more large scale staged terror attack in America and the result will be martial law. When even famous singers like Morrissey are being detained and questioned by the secret service for "speaking out against the American and British governments," we know we are in a lot of trouble.

By Katherine Hunt
Last Update: 12:19 PM ET Jan 24, 2006

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- KBR, the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton Co. (HALHalliburton Company, said Tuesday it has been awarded a contingency contract from the Department of Homeland Security to supports its Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities in the event of an emergency. The maximum total value of the contract is $385 million and consists of a 1-year base period with four 1-year options. KBR held the previous ICE contract from 2000 through 2005. The contract, which is effective immediately, provides for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to expand existing ICE Detention and Removal Operations Program facilities in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs, KBR said. The contract may also provide migrant detention support to other government organizations in the event of an immigration emergency, as well as the development of a plan to react to a national emergency, such as a natural disaster, the company said.
Step #1. Create detention centers in case of national emergency.
Step #2. Create national emergency.
The Village Voice September 4 2002
Jonathan Turley is a professor of constitutional and public-interest law at George Washington University Law School in D.C. He is also a defense attorney in national security cases and other matters,
writes for a number of publications, and is often on television. He and I occasionally exchange leads on civil liberties stories, but I learn much more from him than he does from me.
For example, a Jonathan Turley column in the national edition of the August 14 Los Angeles Times ("Camps for Citizens: Ashcroft's Hellish Vision") begins:
"Attorney General John Ashcroft's announced desire for camps for U.S. citizens he deems to be 'enemy combatants' has moved him from merely being a political embarrassment to being a constitutional menace." Actually, ever since General Ashcroft pushed the U.S. Patriot Act through an overwhelmingly supine Congress soon after September 11, he has subverted more elements of the Bill of Rights than any attorney general in American history.
Under the Justice Department's new definition of "enemy combatant"-which won the enthusiastic approval of the president and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld-anyone defined as an "enemy combatant," very much including American citizens, can be held indefinitely by the government, without charges, a hearing, or a lawyer. In short, incommunicado.
Two American citizens-Yaser Esam Hamdi and Jose Padilla-are currently locked up in military brigs as "enemy combatants." (Hamdi is in solitary in a windowless room.) As Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Tribe said on ABC's Nightline (August 12):
"It bothers me that the executive branch is taking the amazing position that just on the president's say-so, any American citizen can be picked up, not just in Afghanistan, but at O'Hare Airport or on the streets of any city in this country, and locked up without access to a lawyer or court just because the government says he's connected somehow with the Taliban or Al Qaeda. That's not the American way. It's not the constitutional way. . . . And no court can even figure out whether we've got the wrong guy."
In Hamdi's case, the government claims it can hold him for interrogation in a floating navy brig off Norfolk, Virginia, as long as it needs to. When Federal District Judge Robert Doumar asked the man from the Justice Department how long Hamdi is going to be locked up without charges, the government lawyer said he couldn't answer that question. The Bush administration claims the judiciary has no right to even interfere.
Now more Americans are also going to be dispossessed of every fundamental legal right in our system of justice and put into camps. Jonathan Turley reports that Justice Department aides to General Ashcroft "have indicated that a 'high-level committee' will recommend which citizens are to be stripped of their constitutional rights and sent to Ashcroft's new camps."
It should be noted that Turley, who tries hard to respect due process, even in unpalatable situations, publicly defended Ashcroft during the latter's turbulent nomination battle, which is more than I did.
Again, in his Los Angeles Times column, Turley tries to be fair: "Of course Ashcroft is not considering camps on the order of the internment camps used to incarcerate Japanese American citizens in World War II. But he can be credited only with thinking smaller; we have learned from painful experience that unchecked authority, once tasted, easily becomes insatiable." (Emphasis added.)
Turley insists that "the proposed camp plan should trigger immediate Congressional hearings and reconsideration of Ashcroft's fitness for important office. Whereas Al Qaeda is a threat to the lives of our citizens, Ashcroft has become a clear and present threat to our liberties." (Emphasis added.)
On August 8, The Wall Street Journal, which much admires Ashcroft on its editorial pages, reported that "the Goose Creek, South Carolina, facility that houses [Jose] Padilla-mostly empty since it was designated in January to hold foreigners captured in the U.S. and facing military tribunals-now has a special wing that could be used to jail about 20 U.S. citizens if the government were to deem them enemy combatants, a senior administration official said." The Justice Department has told Turley that it has not denied this story. And space can be found in military installations for more "enemy combatants."
But once the camps are operating, can General Ashcroft be restrained from detaining-not in these special camps, but in regular lockups-any American investigated under suspicion of domestic terrorism under the new, elastic FBI guidelines for criminal investigations? From page three of these Ashcroft terrorism FBI guidelines:
"The nature of the conduct engaged in by a [terrorist] enterprise will justify an inference that the standard [for opening a criminal justice investigation] is satisfied, even if there are no known statements by participants that advocate or indicate planning for violence or other prohibited acts." (Emphasis added.) That conduct can be simply "intimidating" the government, according to the USA Patriot Act.
The new Steven Spielberg-Tom Cruise movie, Minority Report, shows the government, some years hence, imprisoning "pre-criminals" before they engage in, or even think of, terrorism. That may not be just fiction, folks.
Returning to General Ashcroft's plans for American enemy combatants, an August 8 New York Times editorial-written before those plans were revealed-said: "The Bush administration seems to believe, on no good legal authority, that if it calls citizens combatants in the war on terrorism, it can imprison them indefinitely and deprive them of lawyers. This defiance of the courts repudiates two centuries of constitutional law and undermines the very freedoms that President Bush says he is defending in the struggle against terrorism."
Meanwhile, as the camps are being prepared, the braying Terry McAuliffe and the pack of Democratic presidential aspirants are campaigning on corporate crime, with no reference to the constitutional crimes being committed by Bush and Ashcroft. As Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis prophesied: "The greatest menace to freedom is an inert people." And an inert Democratic leadership. See you in a month, if I'm not an Ashcroft camper.

Feb. 13, 2006 issue
In the latest twist in the debate over presidential powers, a Justice Department official suggested that in certain circumstances, the president might have the power to order the killing of terrorist suspects inside the United States. Steven Bradbury, acting head of the department's Office of Legal Counsel, went to a closed-door Senate intelligence committee meeting last week to defend President George W. Bush's surveillance program. During the briefing, said administration and Capitol Hill officials (who declined to be identified because the session was private), California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein asked Bradbury questions about the extent of presidential powers to fight Al Qaeda; could Bush, for instance, order the killing of a Qaeda suspect known to be on U.S. soil? Bradbury replied that he believed Bush could indeed do this, at least in certain circumstances.
Current and former government officials said they could think of several scenarios in which a president might consider ordering the killing of a terror suspect inside the United States. One former official noted that before Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania, top administration officials weighed shooting down the aircraft if it got too close to Washington, D.C. What if the president had strong evidence that a Qaeda suspect was holed up with a dirty bomb and was about to attack? University of Chicago law professor Cass Sunstein says the post-9/11 congressional resolution authorizing the use of military force against Al Qaeda empowered the president to kill 9/11 perpetrators, or people who assisted their plot, whether they were overseas or inside the United States. On the other hand, Sunstein says, the president would be on less solid legal ground were he to order the killing of a terror suspect in the United States who was not actively preparing an attack.
A Justice Department official, who asked not to be ID'd because of the sensitive subject, said Bradbury's remarks were made during an "academic discussion" of theoretical contingencies. In real life, the official said, the highest priority of those hunting a terrorist on U.S. soil would be to capture that person alive and interrogate him. At a public intel-committee hearing, Feinstein was told by intel czar John Negroponte and FBI chief Robert Mueller that they were unaware of any case in which a U.S. agency was authorized to kill a Qaeda-linked person on U.S. soil. Tasia Scolinos, a Justice Department spokeswoman, told NEWSWEEK: "Mr. Bradbury's meeting was an informal, off-the-record briefing about the legal analysis behind the president's terrorist-surveillance program. He was not presenting the legal views of the Justice Department on hypothetical scenarios outside of the terrorist-surveillance program."

27 January 2006
By Adam Brookes
BBC Pentagon correspondent
A newly declassified document gives a fascinating glimpse into the US military's plans for "information operations" - from psychological operations, to attacks on hostile computer networks.

The document says information is "critical to military success"
Bloggers beware.
As the world turns networked, the Pentagon is calculating the military opportunities that computer networks, wireless technologies and the modern media offer.
From influencing public opinion through new media to designing "computer network attack" weapons, the US military is learning to fight an electronic war.
The declassified document is called "Information Operations Roadmap". It was obtained by the National Security Archive at George Washington University using the Freedom of Information Act.
Officials in the Pentagon wrote it in 2003. The Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, signed it.
Information Operations Roadmap
Most computers will open PDF documents automatically, but you may need to download Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Download the reader here
The "roadmap" calls for a far-reaching overhaul of the military's ability to conduct information operations and electronic warfare. And, in some detail, it makes recommendations for how the US armed forces should think about this new, virtual warfare.
The document says that information is "critical to military success". Computer and telecommunications networks are of vital operational importance.
Propaganda
The operations described in the document include a surprising range of military activities: public affairs officers who brief journalists, psychological operations troops who try to manipulate the thoughts and beliefs of an enemy, computer network attack specialists who seek to destroy enemy networks.
All these are engaged in information operations.

The wide-reaching document was signed off by Donald Rumsfeld
Perhaps the most startling aspect of the roadmap is its acknowledgement that information put out as part of the military's psychological operations, or Psyops, is finding its way onto the computer and television screens of ordinary Americans.
"Information intended for foreign audiences, including public diplomacy and Psyops, is increasingly consumed by our domestic audience," it reads.
"Psyops messages will often be replayed by the news media for much larger audiences, including the American public," it goes on.
The document's authors acknowledge that American news media should not unwittingly broadcast military propaganda. "Specific boundaries should be established," they write. But they don't seem to explain how.
"In this day and age it is impossible to prevent stories that are fed abroad as part of psychological operations propaganda from blowing back into the United States - even though they were directed abroad," says Kristin Adair of the National Security Archive.
Credibility problem
Public awareness of the US military's information operations is low, but it's growing - thanks to some operational clumsiness.
When it describes plans for electronic warfare, or EW, the document takes on an extraordinary tone. It seems to see the internet as being equivalent to an enemy weapons system
Late last year, it emerged that the Pentagon had paid a private company, the Lincoln Group, to plant hundreds of stories in Iraqi newspapers. The stories - all supportive of US policy - were written by military personnel and then placed in Iraqi publications.
And websites that appeared to be information sites on the politics of Africa and the Balkans were found to be run by the Pentagon.
But the true extent of the Pentagon's information operations, how they work, who they're aimed at, and at what point they turn from informing the public to influencing populations, is far from clear.
The roadmap, however, gives a flavour of what the US military is up to - and the grand scale on which it's thinking.
It reveals that Psyops personnel "support" the American government's international broadcasting. It singles out TV Marti - a station which broadcasts to Cuba - as receiving such support.
It recommends that a global website be established that supports America's strategic objectives. But no American diplomats here, thank you. The website would use content from "third parties with greater credibility to foreign audiences than US officials".
It also recommends that Psyops personnel should consider a range of technologies to disseminate propaganda in enemy territory: unmanned aerial vehicles, "miniaturized, scatterable public address systems", wireless devices, cellular phones and the internet.
'Fight the net'
When it describes plans for electronic warfare, or EW, the document takes on an extraordinary tone.
It seems to see the internet as being equivalent to an enemy weapons system.
"Strategy should be based on the premise that the Department [of Defense] will 'fight the net' as it would an enemy weapons system," it reads.
The slogan "fight the net" appears several times throughout the roadmap.
The authors warn that US networks are very vulnerable to attack by hackers, enemies seeking to disable them, or spies looking for intelligence.
"Networks are growing faster than we can defend them... Attack sophistication is increasing... Number of events is increasing."
US digital ambition
And, in a grand finale, the document recommends that the United States should seek the ability to "provide maximum control of the entire electromagnetic spectrum".
US forces should be able to "disrupt or destroy the full spectrum of globally emerging communications systems, sensors, and weapons systems dependent on the electromagnetic spectrum".
Consider that for a moment.
The US military seeks the capability to knock out every telephone, every networked computer, every radar system on the planet.
Are these plans the pipe dreams of self-aggrandising bureaucrats? Or are they real?
The fact that the "Information Operations Roadmap" is approved by the Secretary of Defense suggests that these plans are taken very seriously indeed in the Pentagon.
And that the scale and grandeur of the digital revolution is matched only by the US military's ambitions for it.
Any UK citizen who refuses to be marked as cattle of the state and carry a national ID card must leave the country before 2008 or face fines and prison sentences as the government cracks down on refusniks.
Eliminates opportunity for stay of execution
Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | April 4 2006
Any UK citizen who refuses to be marked as cattle of the state and carry a national ID card must leave the country before 2008 or face fines and prison sentences as the government cracks down on refusniks.
Up until now Britons were able to renew their passports for periods of ten years at any time. This meant that many (including me) were planning to renew right before it became compulsory to be issued with an ID card when renewing your passport in 2008, giving us ten years of ID free existence.
The government has put the brakes on such tactics by simply announcing, with no debate or legislation, that passports can now only be renewed for 9 months in advance.
Today's Register piece anticipates that an entire propaganda campaign has already been carefully prepared to target anyone considering becoming an ID card refusnik. Highly publicized police crackdowns and arrests of people who intentionally lose or destroy their passports before the 2008 ID deadline will be made to frighten people into submission.
The legislation already states that if you lose your ID card you will have to immediately report it to the government or face a £1000 fine.
Government council spies have already been deployed in Scotland to follow smokers who flout the new law to their own homes and then notify the police. Will the same tattle-tale squads be used to target refusniks?
But the ID card will still be voluntary! You just won't be able to leave the country, own a house or a car, have a doctor, a bank account, a mobile phone, get an education, own a business, rent a room in a hotel, or have a job. You won't officially be authorized to live or die. But it's still voluntary! Oh, and did we mention your iris scan will still be in the national database anyway?
When ID cards were introduced in the UK during World War II, they had three functions. By the time they were abolished in 1952 they had 39 administrative uses. What else is going to be added? Political persuasion? Day to day activities? Likes? Dislikes? Thoughts?
The Nazis used the earliest ID card technology, the IBM punch card model, to catalogue and compile a database of subversives, homosexuals, gypsies and Jews before the round ups began.
The British government is unrelenting in its role to impose the ID card program as a key cornerstone of the worldwide tracking, surveillance and control grid but it will have to throw millions of refusniks in jail who will reject high-tech slavery to the bitter end. The only question is whether they do it incrementally or stage their own night of the long knives and rapidly enforce a crackdown en masse, a move that could easily backfire and lead to the collapse of the entire stinking infrastructure.
Related: Why You Should Resist the National ID Card
Prison Planet | September 16 2005
This piece focuses on the introduction of the British national ID card but the same principles can be applied in any country.
1) A government engaging in escalating criminal actions and becoming more and more secretive should not be watching and tracking us as if we're all criminals. The same goes for CCTV surveillance. That's not freedom. Would you let a convicted murderer and pedophile watch your child 24/7?
The often peddled mantra of 'why should you care if you have nothing to hide?' is manifestly ridiculous in light of the fact that we have a government that has everything to hide and yet we're the ones under suspicion.
Should it concern us that our government shredded hundreds of thousands of documents before a 1st January Freedom of Information deadline? Why should the government care about freedom of information if they have nothing to hide?
But they did care enough to order this mass shredding.
We are told by the government to make our lives completely transparent or go to jail while the government itself becomes more secretive than ever before.
Why should they know everything about me when they won't tell me anything about them?
Would you walk up to a gang of criminals and give them your credit card and PIN number?
2) The government told us that the ID card would make our information more secure. Blair said this would protect, not infringe our liberties. And how did they propose paying for it? By selling the information of 44 million British citizens to private companies. How secure is that?
3) As a perspective on how governing powers use ID cards, consider the fact that residents of Fallujah in Iraq were finger scanned, given retina scans and ID cards just to be able to leave and enter the village. Every citizen is treated as a potential insurgent and is given an ID card. Is that how our government views us all, as potential insurgents?
So, what do you have to hide? is the wrong question. The question should be, why does the government need to know everything about me?
4) ID cards will not stop terrorism. Even the Home Secretary Charles Clarke admitted it after the London bombings. In addition, the Blair government has been caught faking terror alerts to push through increased power. Firstly in the case of the Ricin plot that never was and also an attack on Canary Wharf which was admitted to be totally scripted. Furthermore, the so-called London bombing mastermind was an MI6 asset. Reams of evidence point to the bombings being an inside job, one of the purposes of which was making British people accept ID cards. Large scale terrorist atrocities worldwide always lead back to government perpetrators. In this instance it is important to recall Herman Goering's quote,
"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."
5) Top criminologists have gone public to say that ID cards will actually result in an increase in identity theft, not a decrease as the government claims.
6) The introduction of the national ID card is one step further towards the mandatory implantation of ID chips in all British citizens. Does this sound outlandish? Implantable chip technology has been in existence for a decade and discussions on ID chipping humans is in the news regularly. Tommy Thompson, the former Health and Human Services Secretary in the Bush administration, had a chip implanted and is now touring the country lauding the virtues of ID chips. During the the confirmation hearings for John Roberts Jr., George W. Bush's nominee for Supreme Court chief justice, Roberts was questioned by Senator Joseph R. Biden on whether he would rule against a mandatory implantable microchip to track American citizens.
7) The purpose of government is to serve the people, not control them. Any scheme of national registration is alien to the basic fundamental principles of a supposed free country.

Today's scenes do not herald 'new civil rights movement,' only invading army of foreigners
Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones/Prison Planet.com | May 1 2006
Today's massive immigration protests which are being afforded lavish and complimentary media attention were orchestrated by the Neo-Cons and the Bush administration and represent a fifth columnist movement openly intent on destroying America as we know it.
The agenda is multi-faceted and includes protecting government drug-running operations, balkanizing the US and lowering the standard of living, and inciting race riots that lead to the justification of martial law and internment procedures being implemented.
As we reported last month, in late December 2005, Mexican President Vicente Fox hired a lobbying firm to sweeten political sentiment in the US towards Mexicans and the immigration issue. The same PR expert and GOP political consultant helped George W. Bush defeat Ann Richards for the governorship of Texas in 1994 and worked on both Bush's presidential campaigns.
Rob Allyn of Rob Allyn & Co. secretly engineered Fox's 2000 presidential victory and is closely tied with George W. Bush.
There can be no doubt that a foreign government is working in tandem with the government of the United States and a powerful, politically-connected public relations firm to manufacture consent and to hold back a growing grassroots movement to defend America's sovereignty.
The LA Times reported that Vicente Fox hired Allyn & Co. when the rumblings of immigration reform began to be heard in Congress. The firm was hired to create a mechanism to sway public opinion in favor of Mexico and Mexican immigrants into the U.S. at the same moment public concern over border security was beginning to reach a fever pitch. The timing is impeccable.
The legislation that Fox found so "shameful" is the very same that is being protested so vehemently by hundreds of thousands around the country. The mainstream media's massive protest coverage kept coming back to a few central themes: the protesters are against "criminalizing" the illegal crossing of U.S. borders and they are seeking a blanket amnesty for undocumented immigrants currently residing in the country. Fox turned to Allyn & Co. to push this very agenda.
An LA Times report on last December's announcement quotes Allyn (pictured) on his tactics on behalf of Fox,
''Our focus is on public opinion, which influences policy outcomes in Congress,'' said Allyn, 46, who grew up in Huntington Beach, Calif., and moved to Texas when he was in high school. "There is a huge misperception among the U.S. public about Mexico.''
Allyn set up a phony human rights front group called Democracy Watch, supposedly to "monitor" elections in Mexico. The group solicited donations and used the money to illegally sway the Mexican election in favor of Vicente Fox.
The scenes you will witness on the streets of America over the next few days do not illustrate a 'new civil rights movement' but an invading army of militant foreigners bankrolled and supported by predominantly white rich Neo-Cons and Neo-Libs who are using the different Mexican race groups as a vice to crush the sleeping American middle class.
The real agenda embraced by the ringleaders of the protests are still being whitewashed and covered up by the mainstream media.
The demonstrations are part of an orchestrated advance on the part of a race hate movement that seeks to enact a brutal program of ethnic cleansing that will wipe uncooperative whites and blacks from the south and western states off the map, as detailed in our previous article.
The Atzlan movement openly states its goal is to create a separatist state that encompasses the entire southern and western states. Their version of Hitler's Mein Kampf is the Plan of San Diego, which outlines the plan to ethnically cleanse the entire region of whites and blacks by mass genocide. Mecha's own slogan reads, "For the race everything. For those outside the race, nothing."
The catalyst for the agenda to intern millions of Americans deemed subversive in a time of manufactured chaos could be race riots kick-started by radicalized Mexican Klan groups and their establishment controllers.
During our reporting on the immigration protests that are a front for the violent separatist Atzlan movement, watching Spanish TV news stations we were able to ascertain that the marches were not wholly an organic response to the introduction of the immigration bill but were being artificially promoted and organized by the Spanish-language media.
The very next day the Associated Press reported that, "Many of the 500,000 people who crammed downtown Los Angeles on Saturday to protest legislation that would make criminals out of illegal immigrants learned where, when and even how to demonstrate from the Spanish-language media.
"For English-speaking America, the mass protests in Los Angeles and other U.S. cities over the past few days have been surprising for their size and seeming spontaneity."
"But they were organized, promoted or publicized for weeks by Spanish-language radio hosts and TV anchors as a demonstration of Hispanic pride and power."
Last week Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff dismissed concerns over repeated incursions onto US soil by the Mexican military and drug runners, calling claims of a border war "scare tactics."
Over the past few years there have been hundreds of incidents of rocket attacks, drive by shootings, murders of sheriffs and police chiefs and abductions of US citizens. If Al-Qaeda was engaging in this kind of behavior it would be all over the front pages without recourse.
Sheriff Rick Flores, whose jurisdiction includes vast swathes of the southern border, told the London Telegraph last week, "Yeah, it's a war."
"These people are sophisticated and they are organised. They wear body armour and helmets, just like our soldiers in Iraq. They have no respect for life and are not afraid of law enforcement on this side."
The National Executive Director of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps Al Garza calls the southern border a "warzone" and says that areas of south Texas and Arizona are more dangerous per capita than Israel's West Bank.
"We are virtually at war, we should in fact deploy our military to the borders. You do that and you will seize all these criminals and all these drug cartels that do what they want to do," Garza told The Alex Jones Show.
Mexican drug commando organization los Zetas (pictured) has been carrying out kidnappings of American citizens and politically motivated assassinations which have stretched from the border town of Nuevo Laredo through to Dallas, Houston and San Antonio all the way to Nashville, Tenn., and Atlanta, Ga.
Why would the US government make it easier for drug smuggling death squads to enter the country? Because the US government controls los Zetas and uses it as the front group for their narco-empire.
Retired DEA Agent Celerino "Cele" Castillo III served for 12 years in the Drug Enforcement Administration where he built cases against organized drug rings in Manhattan, raided jungle cocaine labs in the amazon, conducted aerial eradication operations in Guatemala, and assembled and trained anti-narcotics units in several countries.
Castillo affirms the truth is that they are still working for the US government in protecting drug routes to keep the wheels of Wall Street oiled. Castillo has gone on the record to state that the commandos are working directly for the US government drug cartel in carrying out hits on rival drug smugglers who aren't paying their cut.
This is why President Bush attacked the Minutemen as "vigilantes" and the Border Patrol in Arizona were ordered to stand down and not arrest people illegally crossing the border, in order to make the Minutemen look bad and ineffective.

U.S. moves to debunk 'alternative theories' on Sept. 11 attacks
http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/09/01/news/conspiracy.php">Jim Dwyer The New York Times | September 2 2006
Comment: Although this piece still misses the mark - we have covered how and when the explosives could have been placed within the towers, it fails to address building 7, and the people who do not believe the government's official story are in the majority, not the minority - it is indicative of how far the 9/11 truth movement has come. For the NEW YORK TIMES to cover in depth the controlled demolition theories is a great achievement for the movement on the whole.
Faced with an angry minority of people who believe the Sept. 11 attacks were part of a shadowy and sprawling plot run by Americans, separate reports were published this week by the State Department and a federal science agency insisting that the catastrophes were caused by hijackers who used commercial airliners as weapons.
The official narrative of the attacks has been attacked as little more than a cover story by an assortment of radio hosts, academics, amateur filmmakers and others who have spread their arguments on the Internet and cable television in America and abroad. As a motive, they suggest that the Bush administration wanted to use the attacks to justify military action in the Middle East.
Most elaborately, they propose that the collapse of the World Trade Center was actually caused by explosive charges secretly planted in the buildings, rather than by the destructive force of the airliners that thundered into the towers and set them ablaze.
The government reports and officials say the demolition argument is utterly implausible on a number of grounds. Indeed, few proponents of the explosives theory are willing to venture explanations of how daunting logistical problems would be overcome, such as planting thousands of pounds of explosives in busy office towers.
Nevertheless, federal officials say they moved to affirm the conventional history of the day because of the persistence of what they call "alternative theories." On Wednesday, the National Institute of Standards and Technology issued a seven-page study based on its earlier 10,000-page report on how and why the trade center collapsed. The full report, released a year ago, and the synopsis, in a question and answer format, are available online at http://wtc.nist.gov.
About a dozen researchers produced the new study over the last two months by assembling material from the longer report that addressed the conspiracy claims.
"With the fifth anniversary coming up, there seemed to be more play for the alternative viewpoints," said Michael Newman, a spokesman for the institute. "We have received e-mails and phone calls asking us to respond to these theories, and we felt that this fact sheet was the best means of doing so."
A nationwide poll taken earlier this summer by the Scripps Survey Research Center at Ohio University found that more than a third of those surveyed said the federal government either took part in the attacks or allowed them to happen. And 16 percent said the destruction of the trade center was aided by explosives hidden in the buildings. The survey questioned 1,010 adults by telephone and had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points. Details are available at http://newspolls.org.
The demolition theory has managed to endure what would seem to be enormous obstacles to its practicality. Controlled demolition is done from the bottom of buildings, not the top, to take advantage of gravity, and there is little dispute that the collapse of the two towers began high in the towers, in the areas where the airplanes struck.
Moreover, a demolition project would have required the walls of the towers to be opened on dozens of floors, followed by the insertion of thousands of pounds of explosives, fuses and ignition mechanisms, all sneaked past the security stations, inside hundreds of feet of walls on all four faces of both buildings. Then the walls presumably would have been closed up.
All this would have had to take place without attracting the notice of any of the thousands of tenants and workers in either building; no witness has ever reported such activity. Then on the morning of Sept. 11, the demolition explosives would have had to withstand the impacts of the airplanes, since the collapse did not begin for 57 minutes in one tower, and 102 minutes in the other.
Those who believe in the demolition theory remain unpersuaded by government statements new or old, and the officials who issued the would-be rejoinders say they are not surprised.
"We realize that this fact sheet won't convince those who hold to the alternative theories that our findings are sound," Newman said. "In fact, the fact sheet was never intended for them. It is for the masses who have seen or heard the alternative theory claims and want balance."
Newman was correct that the institute's reports would not convert those who favor the demolition theories, said Kevin Ryan, who is the coeditor of an online publication, www.journalof911studies.com, that has published much of the material arguing that the government's accounts are false.
"The list of answers NIST has provided is generating more questions, and more skepticism, than ever before," Ryan said.
Newman said, "NIST respects the opinions of others who do not agree with the findings in its report on the collapses of WTC1 and WTC2."
The State Department report, which officials said was written independently of the NIST synopsis, is titled, "The Top Sept. 11 Conspiracy Theories" and says, "Numerous unfounded conspiracy theories about the Sept. 11 attacks continue to circulate, especially on the Internet." Produced by an arm of the State Department known as a "counter-misinformation team," the report is dated Aug. 28 and appears as a special feature on the department's Web site, at http://usinfo.state.gov/media/misinformation.html.
The report brought to light one little-known detail about the morning: a private demolition monitoring firm, Protec Documentation Services, had seismographs at several construction sites in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Those machines documented the tremors of the falling towers, but captured no ground vibrations before the collapses from demolition charges or bombs, according to a separate report by Brent Blanchard, the director of field operations for Protec. It is available online at www.implosionworld.com.
Asked for comment, Ryan said that his online 911 journal would soon publish an article on those seismic recordings. He also maintained that the Protec paper did not adequately address why puffs of smoke were seen being expelled from some of the floors. However, the federal investigators said that about 70 percent of a building's volume consists of air, and what looked like puffs of smoke were jets of air - and dust - that were pushed ahead of the collapse.
Among those now propelling the argument that explosives took down the trade center is Steven Jones, a physics professor at Brigham Young University, coeditor with Ryan of www.journalof911studies.com, which published his paper, "Why Indeed Did the World Trade Center Buildings Completely Collapse on 9-11-2001?"
In an e-mail message Thursday, Jones did not explain how so much explosive could have been positioned in the two buildings without drawing attention. "Others are researching the maintenance activity in the buildings in the weeks prior to 9/11/2001," he wrote.
He said his investigation was finding fluorine and zinc in metal debris and dust gathered from near the trade center site, and argued that those elements should not have been found in the building compounds. "We are investigating the possibility of thermite-based arson and demolition," he wrote, referring to compounds that, under controlled circumstances, can cut through steel.
The federal investigators at the National Institute of Standards and Technology state that enormous quantities of thermite would have to be applied to the structural columns to damage them. Not so, said Jones; he reported that he and others were investigating "superthermite."
Jones also argues that the molten steel found in the rubble was evidence of demolition explosives because an ordinary airplane fire would not generate enough heat. He cited photographs of construction equipment removing debris that appeared to be red.
In rebuttal, Blanchard of Protec said that if there had been any molten steel in the rubble, it would have permanently damaged any excavation equipment encountering it. "As a fundamental point, if an excavator or grapple ever dug into a pile of molten steel heated to excess of 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, it would completely lose its ability to function," Blanchard wrote. "At a minimum, the hydraulics would immediately fail and its moving parts would bond together or seize up."

Agency wants FAA execs disciplined over 9-11
The U.S. Transportation Department's inspector general has urged the FAA to consider disciplining two executives who failed to correct false information provided to the commission that investigated the September 11 attacks, the New York Times reported on Saturday.
Citing the report by the acting inspector general, Todd Zinser, whose office acts as the department's internal watchdog, the Times said the Federal Aviation Administration executives, as well as a third, now-retired official, learned after the fact that false information was given to the commission in May 2003 about the FAA's contacts with the Air Force on the morning of the attacks.
That information suggested that the FAA had made contact with its Air Force liaison immediately after the first of the four hijacked planes struck the World Trade Center in New York, the Times said.
But the commission's investigators found that the liaison did not join a conference call with the FAA until after the third plane crashed nearly an hour later.

The time gap is considered significant because it helps undermine an initial claim by the North American Aerospace Defense Command, which is responsible for domestic air defense, that it moved quickly and had a chance to shoot down the last of the hijacked planes still in the air, United Airlines Flight 93, the Times said.
Now the inspector general's report, compiled to address complaints from the independent September 11 commission, has found that the three FAA executives failed to act on an "obligation" to correct the false information given to the commission.
The FAA declined to identify the executives and their names and titles were not disclosed in the inspector general's report, the Times said. The agency also did not say whether it was considering disciplinary action. There was no evidence that the executives provided false information knowingly, the inspector general's office found.
The FAA said the "inspector general's investigation has clarified the record and found no evidence that FAA officials knowingly made false statements," the Times said.
The Pentagon's inspector general said in a similar finding last month concerning military officers who provided inaccurate testimony to the commission that their inaccuracies could be mainly attributed to poor record-keeping.

(with audio, more comments from Pastor, newspaper articles and photos, plus more information to come on this soon. Keep checking this post for updates.)



White crosses (huge plus signs) are showing up on highways and roads, parking lots, including WalMart parking lots, in many places, and will probably be all over the U.S. Keep on the lookout for these crosses and take pictures, note locations / addresses /intersections where you see these. They are for helicopter landings so that the NWO's minions can take over during any emergency / false emergency / martial law / roundup of citizens, including those who "know too much", and those who are on the red, blue, and green lists. Churches and Pastors around the U.S. are working with FEMA and Homeland Security to coerce the people to do what the government demands, including planning to seize our property, animals, food, water, supplies, vehicles, guns, and people! There are laws against hoarding food, water, supplies, etc.



WalMarts, Super WalMarts, and Targets, SuperTargets, along with schools, churches, will most likely be used for forced vaccinations, forced drugging, processing of citizens, quarantining, relocation, etc.



Information is included regarding Target Department store logo and its occult meanings as well as the fact that they were caught selling White Supremacist clothing a few years ago.



There is a program called "Pills in People's Palms in 48 Hours" (PPP). This is being practiced throughout the U.S. and probably the world, during drills, and at WalMart stores, etc. Pastor "Revere" states that WalMart stores will be where this program will be carried out when the real thing happens. There have also been reports of practices taking place at WalMarts where M&M's were used as a drill in place of drugs.



False Flag News site and radio show has information on drills taking place all over.

(40 kilometers is around 25 M.P.H,).

Wide shot of the entrance to the camp. Notice the sign is in English and Russian, (enlargement of sign below). The arrows point out concertina (razor wire), a weapons collections station and concrete barracudas.

A slight zoom in on the sign at the entrance. Notice the text is in both English and Russian. English text reads: "SFOR Checkpoint".

To the left of the entrance, you can see a gun tower and search lights. Concertina (razor wire) and a 10' wall surrounds the facility.

Another shot of the camp shows a watch tower and guard shack. Here again you see the razor wire and dirt wall that surround the complex.

A shot of the guard shack and watch/gun tower from a different/closer angle. Notice how much razor wire is in use.

This shot shows a portable prison move in on trucks, as well as another gun tower and more search lights.

A close-up of the portable prison.

Here is a large tent facility in a remote area deep behind the razor wire.

Another shot of the tent city. You can see that sandbags surround all housing in the area.

The listener who sent these photos estimates the facility to be about 40 Acres in size.

This photo shows another tower and more searchlights.

FEMA Plans To Use Pastors as Pacifiers
in Preparation For Martial Law

Nationwide initiative trains volunteers to teach congregations to "obey the government" during seizure of guns, property, forced inoculations and forced relocation

Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | May 24 2006

(Excerpts):

"We get the the picture that we're going to be standing at the end of some farmer's lane while he's standing there with his double barrel, saying we have to confiscate your cows, your chickens, your firearms," said Pastor Revere.

The Pastor elaborated on how the directives were being smoke screened by an Orwellian alteration of their names.

"They're not using the term 'quarantine' - this is the term they're going to be using - it's called 'social distancing' don't you like that one," said the Pastor.

He also highlighted how detention camps had been renamed to give them a friendly warm veneer.

"Three months ago it was quarantine and relocation centers and now it's 'community centers' and these are going to be activated at the local schools," he said.

Pastor Revere outlined the plan to carry out mass vaccination and enforced drugging programs in times of crisis such as a bird flu outbreak.

"In the event of an outbreak or a bio-terrorist attack, there'd be a mass vaccination....they have a program nationwide 'Pills in People's Palm In 48 Hours'(PPP)," said the Pastor, who was told that Walmart had been designated as the central outlet of this procedure.

Pastor Revere said that many attendees believed in the necessity of the program and were completely unaware to the motivations behind its true purpose and were offered incentives to become volunteers such as preferential treatment and first access for themselves and their families to vaccines and food shipments in times of emergency.

Which roads to close off after martial law was declared had also already been mapped out.

GUEST: Pastor "Revere"
DATE: May 24, 2006 - A Pastor (Alias- Pastor Revere) has come forward to blow the whistle on a nationwide FEMA program which is training Pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to "obey the government" in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation.

The portion below is regarding ANOTHER Pastor who has come forward,
named Pastor Paul Collins:

UPDATED 9/12/06:
Pastor Collins has also seen crosses, (plus signs), being painted with white paint, on the ground, in Anderson, Arkansas. He approached a man who was painting one and asked him what he was doing. The painter replied that he was doing this for Homeland Security in case of emergency, to show helicopters where to land. The audio as well as written information of Pastor Collins states that he was told by local law enforcement that the town could be shut down in 30 to 45 minutes with the use of multiple helicopters landing! A source has reported confirmation of more crosses seen appearing in Springdale, Arkansas. There has also been a report of these crosses seen in a WalMart parking lot by another source in MO.

Places where these crosses may / or are likely to appear: on parking lots, roads, highways, pinch points, (places where 4 lane roads funnel down to 2 lanes or where 2 lanes funnel down to one lane), also near or on cloverleafs coming off of highways, etc., where there are no overhead wires / power lines, etc. to interfere with helicopters landing. They are probably also being painted on roofs of buildings as well. If anyone can look for these and get pics with addresses of intersections and roads where these can be found anywhere across the country, that would be great!


Update: 9/14/06:
*Here is an article which appeared in the newspaper in Pastor Paul Collins' area which talks about these white crosses appearing on local highways and roads.

A Pastor has come forward to blow the whistle on a nationwide FEMA
program which is training Pastors and other religious
representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their
congregations to "obey the government" in preparation for a
declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and
forced relocation.

This program is a nationwide initiative and a literal Soviet model
whereby the churches are being systematically infiltrated by
government volunteers and used as conduits for martial law training
and conditioning. The Pastor was told that over 13,000 counties were
already on board.

FEMA related to the Pastors that quarantines, martial law and forced
relocation were a problem for state authorities when enforcing
federal mandates due to the "cowboy mentality" of citizens standing
up for their property and second amendment rights as well as farmers
defending their crops and livestock from seizure.

It was stressed that the Pastors needed to preach subservience to
the authorities ahead of time in preparation for the round-ups and
to make it clear to the congregation that "this is for their own
good."

Pastors were asked to make a pledge or an affirmation during the
meeting to fulfil the roles ascribed to them by FEMA. They were
given assurances that they would be covered by full compensation in
the event of resisters injuring them during property seizures and
round-ups.

"We get the the picture that we're going to be standing at the end
of some farmer's lane while he's standing there with his double
barrel, saying we have to confiscate your cows, your chickens, your

screened by an Orwellian alteration of their names.

"They're not using the term 'quarantine' - this is the term they're

=====================================================================

Pastor Butch Paugh- May 23, 2006

About three months ago, I was invited to become a part of a group
implementing federal FEMA / Homeland Security directives in our
county. I couldn't pass that up!

Lots of interesting and bothersome info being discussed at these
meetings...

Local FEMA's ("across the US" according to a spokesman at our local
meeting) are gathering Ministers, (Pastors), to help in the event of
a "declaration of Martial Law or like police action following a
declared emergency or quarantine due to an act of bioterrorism".
The discussion centered around the need of 'locals' to "quell the
cowboy mentality" of farmers who may have their stock or crops
confiscated and subsequently destroyed.

FEMA and other Disaster Agencies (NVOAD in particular):
(www.nvoad.org) are training volunteers in a "Peer to Peer" program.
That program trains people to assist FEMA in a neighborhood setting--
teams reach out to neighbors in a declared emergency and "get their
neighbors to obey authorities". According to our spokesman,
Ministers will be especially helpful because "you guys and gals can
use Romans 13".

One more IMPORTANT note:

If you are familiar with red, blue, and green lists and what they are allegedly all about, here is some chilling information. If not, do an online search for these terms:

A Super Target store in Florida has overhead signs all over the store in specifically RED, BLUE, AND GREEN! Different sections of the store are designated with these same colors! This may mean that these stores, and probably WalMart, will be used as "processing centers" for those on the "red, blue, and green lists." There are 31 checkout registers with big red signs with white numbers on them. Target colors / target symbol is red and white. This "target" symbol is used by Freemasons and is called the "point within the circle". This company is tied to Freemasons. These symbols can be found on Target signs, hundreds of them on their shopping bags, on products made by the store, and on the race car they sponsor. It's even found on the dog used in their commercials - notice the circle around the dog's eye? That's the same "point within the circle" symbol!



*SEE INFO. BELOW regarding what the "point within the circle" symbol which is Target's logo, means!



See the Target logo, the "point within the circle" symbol, here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Target_Corporation



Update: 9/13/06:
Target Was Found In Past Years to be Selling White-Supremacist Clothing!

TARGET: Retailing White Supremacy

August 26, 2002 -- Thanks to Target, the nationwide department-store chain, students across the country may be heading back to school in hip-looking white supremacist regalia. The retail giant is selling shorts and baseball caps splashed with EIGHT EIGHT and 88 – white-power code for Heil Hitler, because THE LETTER H is the eighth letter of the alphabet.

Target customer Joseph Rodriguez, a 51-year-old video producer/director at the University of California-Davis, discovered the products in the chain’s downtown Sacramento store when he went shopping in late July.

A horror and science-fiction fan with youthful tastes, Rodriguez was immediately attracted to a blood-red pair of shorts he spotted in the racks, emblazoned with a collage of images and symbols including skulls.

“I just thought they were cool,” Rodriguez says. “But when I saw the 'EIGHT EIGHT,' I couldn’t believe it.”

Rodriguez had been clued into the meaning of “EIGHT EIGHT” just a few days earlier, when he watched “Turn It Down,” a VHI documentary about the rise of racist rock music in America. When he saw the “Heil Hitler” code, quite popular among young neo-Nazis, Rodriguez “recognized it immediately.”

Target officials have not been so quick on the uptake. Rodriguez alerted the store manager in Sacramento, but was told that the store simply carries whatever the department-store giant’s headquarters ships.

After returning home, Rodriguez contacted Target headquarters through the company’s Web site.

“Speaking as a member of a minority targeted by hate groups,” he wrote, “I find something of this nature being sold by Target appalling!” He signed the note, “Joe Rodriguez, Potential Former Customer.”

Once again, Target’s response was disappointing.

Update! Target Stores to Pull "88" Clothing from Shelves

August 27, 2002 -- The Target Corporation said today that it will remove shorts and hats with neo-Nazi symbols for "Heil Hitler" from its 1,100 stores.


"Though the shirts and shorts in question bore Target’s house brand, Brookter said the company does not know if the merchandise was actually designed by a Target employee."

Here's what the symbol means according to expert Dr. Cathy Burns:

This was copied from
Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated
(Includes 728 Illustrations), by Dr. Cathy Burns


From:

Chapter 1.What is a Symbol?, p.27-30.

3.THE CIRCLE

The circle is the symbol of the universe. Eastern Star writer, Sarah Terry, mentions that the circle "is derived from the SUN."(2) Masonic author, J.S.M. Ward, explains that the circle also symbolizes God.(3) A Treasury of Witchcraft explains that "the circle that the magician draws on the ground... [is] to enforce demons to appear."(4) Shortly we'll discover who the god of Masonry is, so it will be evident which god the circle represents.

One particular symbol that is prevalent in Masonry utilizes the circle but a point is added inside the circle. It is called the "point within the circle." Harold Percival in his masonic book tells us: "The point and the circle are the same, the point is the infinitesimally small circle and the circle is the point fully expressed."(5) Since the point and the circle are the same, let's look at what Masons tell us about this specific symbol.

In the Masonic Quiz Book we find that this symbol "is from the Egyptian and is a symbolic sign for the SUN and the god OSIRIS."(6) Albert Mackey, a 33 Degree Mason, reveals that:

"The point within the circle is an intersting and important symbol in Freemasonry... The SYMBOL IS REALLY A BEAUTIFUL BUT SOMEWHAT ABSTRUSE ALLUSION TO THE OLD SUN-WORSHIP, and introduces us for the first time to that modification of it, known among the ancients as the WORSHIP OF THE PHALLUS."(7)

While some Masons are now trying to distance themselves from Mackey, he is nevertheless a HIGHLY RESPECTED MASON and is still looked up to today by many "higher" level Masons. In one Short Talk Bulletin about Mackey, lodge members were told: "Never did he read into a Masonic symbol a meaning which is not actually there,"(8) so we have every reason, then, to accept his interpretation that the point within a circle actually represents a phallus.

Albert Churchward, a Mason, says that: "The POINT WITHIN A CIRCLE IS ONE OF THE HIEROGLYPHIC SIGNS OF THE SUN-GOD, RA..."(9)

The point within the circle represents other gods in other mythologies. In India the dot or the point within the circle represents SHIVA(10) and in Egyptian mythology it represents HORUS(11) or OSIRIS(12). The Druids used the point within a circle as the emblem of their Supreme God who was ODIN.(13) Masons, by the way, admire the Druids and some of them even claim that Masonry came from Druidism. Of course, the Druids were occultic priests, practiced astrology, and offered human sacrifices.

So, like all the other symbols which we have looked at, we find that the circle and the point within the circle refer to a pagan god. Also, like the previous symbols, the point within the circle has a sexual connotation.

In one Short Talk Bulletin entitled "Point Within a Circle", which was to be read in Lodge meetings, we are told that this symbol is connected with SUN WORSHIP. This pamphlet states:

"'It was believed in India that at the general deluge everything ws involved in the common destruction except the male and female principles or ORGANS OF GENERATION, which were destined to produce a new race and to repeople the earth when the waters had subsided from the surface. The female principle, symbolized by the moon, assumed the form of a lunette, or crescent, while the male principle, symbolized by the sun, assumed the form of the lingam (or Phallus) and placed himself erect in the center of the lunette, like the mast of a ship. The two principles in this united form floated in the surface of the waters during the period of their prevalence on the earth, and thus became the progenitors of a new race of men'...

"The Indian interpretation makes the POINT THE MALE PRINCIPLE, THE CIRCLE THE FEMALE; the point became the sun and the circle the solar system which the ancient peoples thought was the universe because the sun is the vivifying, the life-giving principle, for all that lives."(14)

Albert Pike writes that Isis and Osiris:

"the Active and Passive Principles of the Universe, were commonly symbolied by the generative parts of man and woman... The Indian lingam was the union of both, as were the boat and mast and the point within a circle: all of which expressed the same philosophical idea as to the Union of the two great Causes of Nature, whcih concur, one actively and the other passively, in the generation of all beings..."(15)

The point within a circle has been employed in some rather unique ways. For instance, once Masonic book states: "The sign of the infamous Mafia or Cosa Nostra is not the 'black hand', as many believe, but the familiar dot within a circle."(16) We are further informed that:

"Because the true purposes of Illuminism were so shocking, Weishaupt constantly encouraged the SECRETIVE nature of the order. No member was ever allowed himself to be identified as an Illuminati. The words Illuminism or Illuminati were never to be used in correspondence, but were to be replaced by the astrological symbol for the sun, a circle with a dot in the middle."(17)

Another thing we need to look at is a circle surrounding the inverted five-pointed star. In The Question of Freemasonry we learn: "The inverted five-pointed star within a circle is the highest form of satanic expression, representing Baphomet, the God of Mendes, or the embodiment of Lucifer as god."(18) In fact, the PENTAGRAM ENCLOSED WITHIN THE CIRCLE IS A SIGN FOR THE GOD AND GODDESS.(19)

Actually, any occult symbol is considered to be even more powerful whenever a circle is used around another occultic symbol.(20)

Let's observe another logo. Target stores use the point within a circle for their symbol. As mentioned earlier, this sign is a representation of the phallus. The obelisk (e.g. the Washington Monument) is another phallic symbol. With this in mind, it is quite interesting that the Target stores are helping to restore the Washington Monument. They also have a punch out paper where you can build your own obelisk.(61) Just "coincidental"?

"It is remarkable that in all the ancient systems of MYTHOLOGY, the Great Father, or the MALE GENERATIVE PRINCIPLE was uniformly symbolized by a POINT WITHIN A CIRCLE. This emblem was placed by the Scandinavian priests and poets on the central summit of a RAINBOW, which was fabled to be a bridge leading from earth to heaven."(95)

Chapter 19. MASONIC AND EASTERN STAR SYMBOLS, p.340-342

Another name for a four-sided pillar is the obelisk.(124) Pillars have always been worshipped as gods.(125) In Egypt, the obelisk stood for the sun god.(126) The New Age Magazine had ana rticle by 33 degree Mason, Henry Ridgely evans, in which he said that Osiris, the god of the underworld, was also depicted in the form of a pillar.(127)

In fact, in Numbers: Their Occult Power and Mystic Virtues, we find that the lingam (the male sex organ) was an upright pillar.(128)

H.L. Haywood, another Mason, states:

"In some cases these crude rock pillars were thought to be the abodes of gods or demons; in others, homes of the ghosts; and often as symbols of sex. Of the
last-named usage one writer has said that 'pillars of stone, when associated with worship, have been from time immemorial regarded as symbols of the active and passive, the generative and fecundating principles.' In Egypt, Horus and Sut (Set) were regarded as two living pillars, twin builders and supporters of the heavens..."(129)

Masonic author, Rollin Blackmer, elaborates:

"The symbolism regarding solar worship indicated by the point within the circle has many variations, but one of the most primitive and natural was that the Sun was to be regarded as the male generative power of nature. To the ancient philosopher the origin and creation of life led to the contemplation of only one process, the generative act. The Sun God was certainly the generator of life, light, and heat, the male principle, and this was symbolically represented by the Phallus or Lingam, which was some picture, more or less veiled, of the human male generative organ. The most frequent illustration was of a pillar set up in the center of a circle. The circle just as distinctively represented the earth or female principle. The Sun was the Great Father. Under his begign influence all nature germinated, and the earth was the Universal Mother, in whose ample womb all these germs grew to maturity."(130)

In Our Phallic Heritage we are told that "All pillars or columns originally had a phallic significance, and were therefore considered sacred.(131) Pan, the goat god and god of sensuality, was often represented as an obelisk.(132)


A former witch gives some interesting information about the obelisk. He writes:

The obelisk is a long pointed four-sided shaft, the uppermost portion of which forms a pyrmadid. The word 'obelisk' literally means 'Baal's Shaft" or Baal's organ of reproduction. This should be especially shocking when we realize that we have a gigantic obelisk in our nation's capitol known as the Washington Monument."(133)

Of course, the Masons and Egyptians aren't the only ones who had high regard for the obelisk. In front of the Vatican stands the very same obelisk that once stood in Egypt!"(134) Ralph Woodrow explains:

"The very same obelisk that once stood at the ancient temple which was the center of Egyptian paganism, now stands before the mother church of Romanism! This seems like more than a mere coincidence".

When the children of Israel would forsake God, they turned to worshipping idols. One of the idols they worshipped was the obelisk. God had specifically forbidden them to do so. Leviticus 26:1 warns: "Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a STANDING IMAGE , neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down to it: for I am the Lord your God." They were also told that when they went into pagan nations, they "shall overthrow their altars, and BREAK THEIR PILLARS, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place. Ye shall not do so unto the Lord your God" (Deuteronomy 12:3-4). Many other such warnings are also in the Bible. The following references use the same Hebrew word for "pillar" but it is translated as "images". See: Exodus 23:24, 34:13; Deuteronomy 7:5, 16:22; I Kings 14:23; II Kings 10:26, 27, 17:10, 18:4, 23:14; II Chronicles 14:3, 31:1; Jeremiah 43:13; Hosea 10:1-2; and Micah 5:13.

Note: Capital letters from paragraph above are used as emphasis by Vetzine and do not appear as capital letters in the Bible.

How can anyone who truly loves the Lord belong to Masonry, the Eastern Star, or any other Masonically-affiliated organization when they so blatantly promote paganism? The Bible clearly states: "Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you" (II Corinthians 6:17).

City of London to have bird flu drill

City of London to have bird flu drill

Scotsman | September 14 2006

Bird Flu Outbreak Coincided With Drill
http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/april2006/070406birdfludrill.htm

Bird Flu And Social Darwinism
http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/april2006/070406birdflu.htm

The City of London financial services sector will next month test out how it would cope with a bird flu pandemic in an exercise run by finance industry regulators.

The Bank of England, the Financial Services Authority and the Treasury will organise the bird flu simulation event, which will run from October 13 to November 24.

More than 60 organisations from the financial services industry have been asked to take part.

These three bodies cooperate on business continuity planning for incidents that could cause major disruptions to the City of London financial services industry, one of the world's biggest financial centres and home to some of the world's biggest banks.

The simulation of a major crisis has become an annual event.

Last November, the Bank of England, the Treasury and the FSA -- known as the Tripartite Authorities -- carried out the world's biggest ever business endurance exercise to test the financial sector's ability to deal effectively with a major operational disruption.

This involved about 80 firms, including banks, brokerages and insurers, as well as the financial authorities and the police.

This time it is bird flu, which will be run as an "evolving scenario."

"The overall objective for the authorities is to improve their own and the sector's preparedness by providing an opportunity to review, test and update plans for managing a pandemic threat," the three authorities said on their website -- UK Financial Sector Continuity.

Major banks in the City of London have been gearing up to cope with a potential bird flu epidemic for months now.

Last year, for example, Citigroup, the world's biggest bank, set up an avian flu task force, combining business continuity, health services and security services.

During next month's exercise banks and financial services firms will receive regular updates on the severity of the pandemic, its effect on them and on the wider economy.

Banks will review if contingency plans they have made can actually cope in the face of rampant bird flu which will mean reduced staffing levels, disruption to transport, power and telecoms.

The authorities will publish a report on the exercise after it is completed.

The Bank of England, the Treasury and the FSA's business continuity systems were put into action last year during the suicide bomb attacks on London's transport system in July.

The three activated a secret Internet chatroom, which was set up in the wake of the September 11 bombings of the World Trade Centre in New York. This aims to keep lines of communication open between banks and the authorities during a crisis.

In July this year, the Bank of England also ran a seminar to examine how the $2 trillion (1.06 trillion pounds) a day foreign exchange market would cope with a sustained outage of the global currency payments system due to terror attacks or other disruptions.

Bird Flu Outbreak Coincided With Drill
Foot and Mouth example should set alarm bells ringing if pandemic occurs


Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | April 7 2006

Britain's bird flu scare that officials are now warning could spread to other areas of Scotland coincided with an exercise that drilled a response to an avian flu outbreak. The drill included the involvement of Downing Street and the Ministry of Defence.

The
BBC http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4878198.stm reports that the exercise was cancelled as soon as the discovery of the H5 virus in the dead swan in Fife was made.

"The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in London was running it with control centres in Bury St Edmunds, Leeds, Cardiff and Gloucester," states the article.

"It also involved the Association of Chief Police Officers, the Environment Agency, Downing Street, the Ministry of Defence, and other government departments."

The drill revolved around a scenario where bird flu was discovered in two places in England and one in Wales.

Why is this important to note?

Staged-managed manufactured crises are always paralleled by drills of the same nature. This provides culpable deniability if any government agency is caught with their hands in the cookie jar. They can say it was just part of the drill.

Obviously, other organizations like the RSPCA and farming groups would have no knowledge of what the drill is really intended to achieve and at this stage it is just a coincidence. However, if the crisis were to escalate causing Blair's government to start restricting the movement of people then more serious questions would need to be asked. If the next three cases of bird flu popped up in Norfolk, south Wales and northern England, the same places as in the drill, then this would turn into a smoking gun.

A consultancy agency with government and police connections was
running an exercise http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/july2005/090705bombingexercises.htm for an unnamed company that revolved around the London Underground being bombed at the exact same times and locations as happened in real life on the morning of July 7th. The statistical probability of these two events coinciding was astronomical. The exercises provided cover in case government involvement in the attacks was proven, although after this website first brought wide attention to the drills on July 13th, that culpable deniability vanished.

Wargames http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/september2004/080904wargamescover.htm running on the morning of 9/11 simulated planes crashing into high visibility buildings on the US east coast. These drills were enough to confuse air traffic controllers about the real world nature of the actual hijacked planes thereby slowing response times and enabling them to find their targets. In addition the exercises also provided culpable deniability.

Though a bird flu outbreak is in a different league to terrorist bombings, the outcome will eventually be very similar in terms of emergency police state measures rushed through to respond to the situation.

For those who doubt the veracity of a British government plot to once again eviscerate the livelihoods of farmers (the biggest power block opposing Blair) in an act of 'Agraterrorism', just consider the fact that a vial of the Foot and Mouth virus was supposedly 'stolen' from Porton Down bio-weapons facility before the 2001 outbreak took place.
The Sunday Express reported http://archives.tcm.ie/breakingnews/2001/04/08/story9257.asp that it was released deliberately and could have possibly been the source of the outbreak two months later.

The Foot and Mouth disease spread like wildfire throughout the country as many accused the government of not doing nearly enough to contain it and the spring of 2001 in England was characterized by apocalyptic images of burning pyres (pictured above) dotted all over the countryside as over four million animals were slaughtered.

Coupled with reports of the government making inquiries to timber merchants and sign makers (before closing public footpaths), it is inconceivable that an animal rights activist, as we are led to believe, could have penetrated a level 4 bio-weapons facility that also houses anthrax and ebola and is
protected by armed guards http://www.robertkey.com/epolitics/e-0016.htm of the Ministry of Defence Police and the Military Provost Guard Service. The individual who stole the vial must have had full security clearance to enter the facility. Why would an animal rights activist release a virus that would kill four million animals?

Patricia Doyle, PhD
also reported http://www.rense.com/general9/fttd.htm that Foot and Mouth exercises were being run by the British government immediately before the outbreak was made public.

Bird Flu And Social Darwinism
A quick refresher course

http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/april2006/070406birdflu.htm

Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | April 7 2006

Britain again became a victim of bird flu paranoia today after a dead swan in Scotland tested positive for the H5N1 strain of bird flu. Since Sky News and BBC are reveling in the seriousness of all this it's pertinent and timely to recap on the real agenda behind bird flu.

Both the British and US governments have created policies of
quarantine http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/february2006/010206detentioncamps.htm and internment procedures which they need to indoctrinate Joe public into going along with. In the first stage, limited biological panics will be metered upon the public (in Britain through Porton Down, the same people who brought you Foot and Mouth) http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/1760689.stm in order to train them into producing the desired response. Those who are taken to temporary relief centers for their own safety will be treated kindly and released swiftly, putting to shame the outlandish protests of civil liberties advocates and Internet conspiracy theorists.

This is in preparation for the more grandiose biological releases, those advocated by people like
Dr. Eric Pianka, http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/april2006/030406massculling.htm that will kill millions through weaponized airborne ebola or smallpox. People will now have learned that militarized police, curfews and internment facilities bring safety and then will happily spend their time in the camps working to help recover the massive damage to the economy, safe in the knowledge that they will soon be free to leave.

"If we had an outbreak somewhere in the United States, do we not then quarantine that part of the country, and how do you then enforce a quarantine? When -- it's one thing to shut down airplanes; it's another thing to prevent people from coming in to get exposed to the avian flu. And who best to be able to effect a quarantine? One option is the use of a military that's able to plan and move."
President Bush, http://prisonplanet.com/audio/bush_flu.mp3 October 4th 2005.

The Bush cabinet
was on Cipro, http://www.judicialwatch.org/1967.shtml the anthrax fighting antibiotic, on the day of September 11, weeks before the first anthrax attack took place.

The people who will profit financially from a bird flu outbreak are
Donald Rumsfeld and top Bilderberg members http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/october2005/241005fluscam.htm like Etienne F. Davignon.

Bird flu is one more tool in the arsenal of Globalist Malthusian social Darwinists who believe it is their destiny to act as guardians to mother earth against the 'plague' of humanity and that brutal methods of population control are the only way to realize a new world order.

Halliburton Detention Camps For Political Subversives

http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/february2006/010206detentioncamps.htm


Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | February 1 2006


In another shining example of modern day corporate fascism, it was announced recently that Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root had been awarded a $385 million dollar contract by Homeland Security to construct detention and processing facilities in the event of a national emergency.


The language of the preamble to the agreement veils the program with talk of temporary migrant holding centers, but it is made clear that the camps will also be used "as the development of a plan to react to a national emergency."


Discussions of federal concentration camps is no longer the rhetoric of paranoid Internet conspiracy theorists, it is mainstream news.


Under the enemy combatant designation anyone at the behest of the US government, even if they are a US citizen, can be
kidnapped and placed in an internment facility forever http://www.prisonplanet.com/090402camps.html without trial. Jose Padilla, an American citizen, has spent over four years in a Navy brig and is only just now getting a trial.


In 2002, FEMA sought bids from major real estate and engineering firms to construct
giant internment facilities http://www.prisonplanet.com/080702camps.html in the case of a chemical, biological or nuclear attack or a natural disaster.


Okanogan County Commissioner Dave Schulz went public three years ago with his contention that his county was set to be a location for one of the camps. http://www.prisonplanet.com/022703camps.html


Alex Jones has attended numerous military
urban warfare training drills http://www.infowars.com/ouwmar9901.html (see pics) across the US where role players were used to simulate arresting American citizens and taking them to internment camps.

The move towards the database state in the US and the UK, where
everyoffence is arrestable http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/november2004/241104everyoffence.htm and DNA records of every suspect, http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/april2005/210405dnadatabase.htm even if later proven innocent, are permanently kept on record, is the only tool necessary to create a master list of 'subversives' that would be subject to internment in a manufactured time of national emergency.


The national ID card is also intended to be used for this purpose, just as the
Nazis used early IBM computer punch card technology http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/june2004/062204ibmsued.htm to catalogue lists of homosexuals, gypsies and Jews before the round-ups began.


Section 44 of the Terrorism Act in Britain
enablespolice to obtain name and address details of anyone they choose, http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/january2006/310106IDprotester.htm whether they are acting suspiciously or not. Those details remain on a database forever. To date, 119,000 names of political activists have been taken and this is a figure that will skyrocket once the post 7/7 figures are taken into account. At the height of the Iraq war protests, around a million people marched across the country. However, most of these people were taking part in a political protest for the first time and as a one off. Even if we take a figure of half, 500,000 people being politically active in Britain, that means that the government has already registered around a quarter of political activists in the UK.


In truth the number is probably above half because we are not factoring in those already on MI5 'subversive' lists and those listed after the 7/7 bombings, when the powers were used even more broadly.


Concurrently in the US,
http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/january2006/310106patriot_act.htm a new provision in the extended Patriot Act bill would allow Secret Service agents to arrest and jail protesters accused of breaching any security perimeter, even if the President or any other protected official isn't present. The definition of 'free speech zones' can be shifted around loosely and this would open the floodgates for protesters to be grabbed and hauled away in any circumstance at the whim of the Secret Service.


During the 2004 RNC protests,
thousands of New Yorkers were arrested en masse http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/june2005/080605martiallaw.htm in indiscriminate round-ups and taken to Pier 57 (pictured), a condemned, asbestos poisoned old bus depot, where they were imprisoned without charge for up to 24 hours or more.


The existence and development of internment camps are solely intended to be used to round up en masse and imprison 'political dissidents' (anyone who isn't prepared to lick government boots) after a simulated tactical nuke or biological attack on a major US or European city.

New Patriot Act Provision Creates Tighter Barrier to Officials at Public Events

Kelley Beaucar Vlahos / Fox News | January 31 2006

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,183147,00.html

WASHINGTON — A new provision tucked into the Patriot Act bill now before Congress would allow authorities to haul demonstrators at any "special event of national significance" away to jail on felony charges if they are caught breaching a security perimeter.

Sen. Arlen Specter , R-Pa., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sponsored the measure, which would extend the authority of the Secret Service to allow agents to arrest people who willingly or knowingly enter a restricted area at an event, even if the president or other official normally protected by the Secret Service isn't in attendance at the time.

The measure has civil libertarians protesting what they say is yet another power grab for the executive branch and one more loss for free speech.

"It's definitely problematic and chilling," said Lisa Graves, senior counsel for legislative strategy at the American Civil Liberties Union , which has written letters to the chairmen and ranking members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, pointing out that the provision wasn't subject to hearings or open debate.

Some conservatives say they too are troubled by the measure.

"It concerns me greatly," said Bob Barr, former U.S. prosecutor and Republican representative from Georgia. "It clearly raises serious concerns about First Amendment rights."

But not everyone agrees that rights are being trampled on by the additional provision. In fact, some say the ACLU is the problem when it comes to protecting national security.
Rocco DiPippo, a freelance writer for the conservative FrontPageMagazine.com and editor of The Autonomist Web log , said the ACLU has fought the government every step of the way over security measures following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

"Its opposition to Specter's reasonable proposal is simply more of the same," he said. "I can understand the concern that we should be suspicious of government, but we shouldn't adopt this mindset: 'government is evil.' This is just more hatred of (President) Bush."

Under current law, the Secret Service can arrest anyone for breaching restricted areas where the president or a protected official is or will be visiting, but the new provision would allow such arrests even after those VIPs have left the premises of any designated "special event of national significance." The provision would increase the maximum penalty for such an infraction from six months to one year in jail.

In a post-Sept. 11 world many non-political events have been designated National Special Security Events and would rise to the higher status. Examples of possible NSSEs are the Olympics or the Super Bowl. In 2004, the presidential inaugural balls and President Ronald Reagan's June funeral procession in Washington, D.C., were designated NSSEs.

According to government sources with knowledge of the legislation, Secret Service protection and law enforcement authority would extend beyond protecting a specific person, rather the event itself would become the "protectee."

Currently, non-violent demonstrators who enter restricted areas at such events previously would be arrested and charged by local law enforcement with simple trespassing, said Graves. Under the provision included in the new law, they will be charged with felonies by the Secret Service.

"It's a different consequence to people," she said.

"You are talking about giving the executive branch broader authority to create these exclusion zones which could cover broad areas and last for days [during an event ]," David Kopel, a constitutional expert with the Cato Institute, told FOXNews.com.

A spokesman at Specter's office said the senator was surprised by the clamor over the provision, which merely makes a technical change to clear up legal confusion over who has arresting authority at NSSEs. His office had no further comment on the provision. Committee Ranking Member Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., also declined comment. Republican and Democratic House Judiciary Committee leaders did not return calls for comment.

White House sources say the measure was not instigated by the administration and pointed out that it was a stand-alone bill that was rolled into the Patriot Act by Specter's office during House-Senate conference negotiations. White House spokeswoman Dana Perino told FOXNews.com that the White House would not comment on the intent of the measure, but that the president is concerned with preserving individual rights.

"President Bush is committed to protecting the American people's national security as well as their civil liberties," she said.

Secret Service representatives said the agency does not comment on pending legislation.

The Bush administration has been criticized in the past for what many say are tactics that keep protesters far away from official events and by employing stringent policies to ensure favorable audiences for the president.

Last year, three ticket-holding audience members at one of the president's Social Security events in Denver, Colo., were apprehended by a man who they said identified himself as Secret Service. The three were forced away from the event because of an anti-war sticker on the driver's car.

"[The administration] has certainly demonstrated a desire to have carefully-controlled events," said Graves.

John Pike, director of GlobalSecurity.org, an Alexandria, Va.-based clearinghouse for domestic and international security information, said he "could certainly understand why the Secret Service would want that legal authority," given the enormous burden of making venues safe for VIPs today.

"However, I think many people have concluded that the way it is being used has nothing to do with protecting the president from Usama bin Laden and everything to do with suppressing dissent and making sure the protesters don't get on TV," Pike said.

Bush is not the first president to flex his authority in this area, said Kopel, who pointed out that beginning with Reagan, presidents have created a larger security bubble and greater distance between themselves and dissenters at public events. The 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States just intensified the situation, he said.

"I think the concerns about free speech in areas where the president is speaking long pre-date Bush. They were an issue in the Clinton administration, the first Bush administration and began as an issue during Reagan," Kopel said. "I do think the ACLU has legitimate concerns about the breadth of the new language and how it could be applied."

Graves points out that conservative "pro-life" groups will be the target of the new provisions, too, a scenario that could raise the concerns for those who are typically critical of the ACLU, which she said is necessarily concerned about other provisions in the bill that impinge on civil liberties.

House and Senate leaders, who return to Capitol Hill this week, are trying to renew the Patriot Act by Friday. Democrats and four Republicans in the Senate who filibustered a final vote in December after raising concerns about preserving civil liberties instituted a short-term extension of the previous bill, which was set to expire on Dec. 31.

ID protester stopped and filmed under terror law will have police record for life

London Telegraph / Philip Johnston | January 31 2006

Comment: Ask yourself, why are the authorities so worried about peacful protest and the spread of information like in this case?

A campaigner against ID cards who was stopped under counter-terror laws while collecting signatures for a petition has been told by police that his details will be kept on file indefinitely.

Mark Wallace was outside the Labour Party conference in Brighton last autumn when he was detained under section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000. The measure gives officers wide powers to stop anyone in a designated area, whether or not they are acting suspiciously.

Mr Wallace, who is campaign manager for the Freedom Association, said he had subsequently asked Sussex police what they proposed to do with the record of the encounter and was told the written version would be permanently retained. A video of his detention would be held for seven years, even though he had done nothing wrong.

"One minute I was peacefully collecting signatures, and the next I had five policemen around me, one with a video camera recording my every move and another taking my personal details, address and so on," Mr Wallace said.

"It was bad enough that I was subjected to this unjustly, but why am I now registered for life as linked to anti-terrorist investigations, despite my innocence?"

Mr Wallace added: "It worries me that this could damage future travel plans or even attract suspicion in future cases, when all I have done is to use my freedom of speech. The fact that peaceful protest and petitioning is subject to police investigation is itself worrying, but a policy of keeping details of the innocent on file forever is an utter disgrace."

Christopher Gill, chairman of the Freedom Association, said: "These laws are terrifyingly wide ranging, and fail even to demand suspicion in order to stop someone and thus list them for life.

"They are being over-used, and innocent people are having their records marked as a result. The police are supposed to protect the innocent from the guilty, not smear their records arbitrarily."

During the Labour conference, 426 people were stopped under section 44 and none was charged or convicted. Official figures show that nationally 119,000 people were stopped under the powers between 2001 and early 2005, and only 1,515 of these were arrested. Figures for 2005 are expected to be far higher after the London bombings last July.

Section 44 bestows exceptional powers on the police to stop and search at random, once a particular geographical area has been designated by a chief officer as one that might be targeted by terrorists and authorised as such by the Home Secretary.

Sussex police confirmed that they held stop-and-search records indefinitely and videos for seven years. The Terrorism Act does not specify what should happen to the information.

While Labour was in Brighton, the whole of the city was a designated area. Unlike with normal stop-and-search powers, police are not required to have "reasonable suspicion" that an offence is being committed.

In his annual review of the Terrorism Act last year, Lord Carlile said the use of section 44 "could be cut by at least 50 per cent without significant risk to the public or detriment to policing".

During the 2005 general election, a group of train-spotters was detained and searched at Basingstoke station, which was on a list of possible terrorist targets drawn up by the Home Office.

Also at last year's Labour conference Walter Wolfgang, an octogenarian party member who was ejected from the main hall for heckling, was questioned under section 44.

IBM sued over alleged Holocaust link

By JONATHAN FOWLER

GENEVA (AP) -- A Swiss court has cleared the way for Gypsies to sue IBM over allegations that the computer company's expertise helped the Nazis commit mass murder more efficiently, the plaintiffs' lawyer said Tuesday.

The Geneva appeals court disagreed with a lower court that refused to hear the case last year on grounds it lacked jurisdiction, said the Gypsies' lawyer, Henri-Philippe Sambuc.

A Gypsy group filed the lawsuit in Geneva because IBM's wartime European headquarters were in the city. They claim the office was IBM's hub for trade with the Nazis.

"IBM's complicity, through material or intellectual assistance to the criminal acts of the Nazis during World War II via its Geneva office, cannot be ruled out," said the appeals court ruling.

It cited "a significant body of evidence indicating that the Geneva office could have been aware that it was assisting these acts."

In its June 2003 ruling, the lower court said IBM only had an "antenna" in the Swiss city.

City archives, however, show that in 1936 IBM opened an office under the name International Business Machines Corporation New York, European Headquarters.

There was no immediate reaction to the ruling from IBM's Geneva lawyers, who have previously referred requests for comment to the company's U.S. headquarters. The ruling came before business hours at the IBM's New York base.

The company has said its German subsidiary, Deutsche Hollerith Maschinen GmbH -- or Dehomag -- was taken over by the Nazis before the Second World War, and it had no control over operations there or how Nazis used IBM machines.

Sambuc contends the company's Geneva office continued to co-ordinate Europe-wide trade with the Nazis, acting on clear instructions from world headquarters in New York.

The group represented by Sambuc -- Gypsy International Recognition and Compensation Action -- sued IBM for "moral reparation" and $20,000 US each in damages on behalf of four Gypsies from Germany and France and one Polish-born Swedish Gypsy. All five plaintiffs were orphaned in the Holocaust.

The campaigners began planning the lawsuit after U.S. author Edwin Black claimed in a book published in February 2001 that IBM punch-card machines enabled the Nazis to make their killing operations more efficient.

Black said the punch-card machines were used to codify information about people sent to concentration camps. The number 12 represented a Gypsy inmate, while Jews were recorded with the number 8. The code D4 meant a prisoner had been killed.

The Nazis are believed to have killed around 600,000 Gypsies, although Gypsy groups say the number could have been as high as 1.5 million.

"It does not appear inconsistent to conclude that the respondent (IBM) facilitated the task of the Nazis in their committing of crimes against humanity -- acts which were counted and codified by IBM machines," the ruling said.

IBM's German division has paid into Germany's government-industry initiative to compensate people forced to work for the Nazis during the war.

In April 2001, a class action lawsuit against IBM in New York was dropped after lawyers said they feared it would slow down payments from the German Holocaust fund. German companies had sought freedom from legal actions before committing to the fund.

The Geneva case is the first Holocaust-related action against IBM in Europe, Sambuc said. A city court will likely hear the lawsuit in the fall, unless IBM lodges an appeal at the Federal Tribunal, Switzerland's supreme court.

UK Government To Make Every Offence Arrestable

London Independent | November 24 2004

Plans to make every offence arrestable, including minor crimes such as littering or spraying walls with graffiti, were criticised yesterday by solicitors for giving the police excessive powers.

The proposal is contained in a Bill that includes the setting up of a national crime agency that is expected to become Britain's version of the FBI.

The Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill is expected to give the police many new powers including allowing officers to take DNA samples and fingerprints from minor offenders arrested on the street.

One of the controversial measures is to allow officers to arrest a suspect for any offence. At present, a police officer can only arrest someone suspected of an offence that could result in a prison sentence of at least five years.

Janet Paraskeva, the chief executive of the Law Society, which represents all solicitors in England and Wales, said: "The police would have a power to arrest however minor the suspected offence. That is not an appropriate balance between the liberty of the citizen and the needs of the police."

The Bill extends the powers of community support officers.

In addition it will create a new offence of incitement to religious hatred to protect faith groups - particularly Muslims - from hate attacks.

Police powers are also to be strengthened to combat harassment by animal-rights extremists against scientific and medical establishments that use animals. The Bill would strengthen the existing police power to prevent protesters from demonstrating outside people's homes.

The Bill is one of the few pieces of legislation that is likely to become law before the expected general election in May and highlights the importance the Government places on the measures, which are likely to win popular support.

Powers to test offenders on arrest rather than when charged is to be contained in the Drugs Bill. The Bill will give the police powers to tackle dealers who hide evidence or claim drugs are for personal use.

Concentration Camps in Okanagon County?

KXLY News February 27 2003

Okanogan County Commissioner Dave Schulz says he's convinced his county is a designated home for a "concentration camp'' in case of civil unrest. Schulz says he has copies of documents, although he hasn't been able to confirm the rumor.

Federal officials say they have no idea where the commissioner got the notion of civilian detention camps.

A Federal Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman says it sounds like an urban legend and a Pentagon spokesman says he's not aware of any planned camps in Okanogan County or elsewhere.

Rumors of planned U.S. detention facilities appear on dozens of Web sites.

Schulz says he thinks the plan has been written in the event of a national emergency where martial law is necessary, and hopes it never becomes necessary.

FEMA's Plan for Mass Destruction Attacks: Of Course It's True

Newsmax August 7 2002

Let me state for the record that FEMA is moving ahead with plans to create temporary cities that could handle millions of Americans after mass destruction attacks on U.S. cities.

Though the agency has denied the program to some of our readers and has made misleading claims about NewsMax's original story to members of the press, the basic facts of the story remain unchallenged.

In early July, NewsMax first reported in our e-mail news service, Insider Report, the story "FEMA Preparing for Mass Destruction Attacks on Cities," revealing that FEMA was seeking bids from three major real estate and/or engineering firms to help prepare for the creation of the emergency cities, using tents and trailers - if an urban area is attacked by NBC (nuclear, chemical or biological) weapons.

Since that report, several NewsMax readers and members of the press contacted FEMA and asked them if the NewsMax story was true.

These readers reported to us that FEMA has categorically denied the story.

For example, my friend Jonathan Kemp, who hails from an illustrious California family (his father was a director of Standard Oil of California), called FEMA's Washington office and was told by a public affairs officer, "The news report about FEMA building the temporary cities to house disaster refugees is totally bogus."

NewsMax, of course, told its readers it stood by the story.

In late July, I called FEMA and spoke with public affairs officer Chad Kolton.

I explained to Mr. Kolton that it was improper for the agency to claim that NewsMax had fabricated this story.

Mr. Kolton denied that there was any claim by FEMA that the NewsMax story was baseless, only that it was "factually inaccurate."

He made that claim without having read the NewsMax story, which he asked me to e-mail to him.

As I pointed out to Mr. Kolton, FEMA has put out a bid notice for the program to build the temporary cities (they call it "temporary disaster housing"). The bid is not only a matter of public record, it also is available on the federal government's Web site.

Note: You can read a synopsis of the bid by clicking here. A lengthier explanation of the program is available online at: http://www1.eps.gov/spg/FEMA/OFM/ORPD/Reference-Number-EMW-2002-TAC/listing.html

The Emergency Housing Cities

On June 19, FEMA posted a special bid notice for one of the agency's largest contract awards ever - offering contracting firms $300 million for a five-year contract to simply prepare plans to create temporary housing on a scale never before imagined, and then stand by.

This is reportedly one of the largest contracts ever awarded by FEMA for a disaster preparedness program.

The name of the program is entitled "Standby Technical Assistance for Disaster Related Operations."

The bid notice states, as NewsMax first reported, that three real estate/engineering firms will be selected for the program.

The firms will be required to provide "technical support, consultant and project management resources" with the specific duty to "provide project management resources and expertise to support the Disaster Housing Program."

According to the bid notice, the firms need to have professionals, including engineers, architects and other real estate-related experts.

According to a source familiar with the current bid, the program is a major expansion of a smaller program FEMA has had for temporary housing in case of disasters.

The Standby Technical Assistance program bid offering never mentions "mass destruction attacks" or terrorist preparedness.

Instead, the bid notice's "Statement of Work" sets out a broad mandate for the firms being contracted, stating that "The Contractor shall be required to provide support capability for all types of disasters with emphasis on riverine and coastal flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, and tsunamis."

The bid states: "... the firm must have at least one permanent and adequately staffed and equipped office located in the Washington Metropolitan area, and two (2) additional offices in other geographic locations within the United States with the capability supporting deployment operations in the event that one area is incapacitated."

The real purpose of the Standby Program was made clear to potential contractors at a meeting held on July 10 at the Department of Education headquarters in Washington.

FEMA officials met with the representatives of firms seeking the bids. Approximately 100 people attended the meeting.

FEMA officials made very clear that the purpose of one of the most massive undertakings in the agency's history was to prepare for potential mass destruction attacks on U.S. cities.

Sources who attended the meeting tell NewsMax that most of the meeting dealt with how the firms should handle biological, chemical and nuclear disasters.

After he had reviewed the NewsMax story, I again chatted with Mr. Kolton. He identified the factual "inaccuracies" in NewsMax's story.

One was that NewsMax reported the contracted firms need to be prepared for creating such cities by January of next year. Mr. Kolton said the firms only need be hired by January of 2003.

NewsMax reported that FEMA told contractors it had ordered tents and trailers for temporary housing. Mr Kolton said the tents and trailers have not been purchased yet. (That may be the case, but FEMA does currently possess tents and trailers for disaster housing.)

These are minor points - and a far cry from claiming the NewsMax story was "totally bogus" or "riddled with inaccuracies," as some members of the press have been told.

In fact, Mr. Kolton agreed that the program includes preparation for terrorist mass destruction attacks, though the FEMA bid notice specifically avoids using such language.

He stressed that the Standby Program is being implemented to prepare for "all types of disasters" including terrorist ones.

Asked why the bid notice conveniently forgot to mention the potential for terrorism, though it must be among the highest priorities for FEMA, he again stressed that the language does include that possibility - though the program's main focus, he said, is on natural disasters.

What natural disaster had caused such a need for the largest program of its kind ever in the history of FEMA?

In decades of emergency response, why, all of sudden, is FEMA set to spend $300 million just for architects and engineers over the next five years simply to be on "standby"?

This $300 million doesn't include the probable billions that would be needed for infrastructure and labor to implement the emergency cities.

What natural disaster would require FEMA to create emergency cities in different geographic areas of the U.S. at the same time?

Kolton responded that FEMA could foresee two Category 4 hurricanes slamming into two distinct parts of the East Coast at about the same time.

The evidence is clear that FEMA is preparing for mass destruction attacks. There is nothing wrong with this program, and in fact, the agency has a duty to disclose its plans to the public.

Far from panicking the public, I think the public would be happy to learn that the U.S. government - our government - is preparing for potential terrorist acts. FEMA should be applauded for thinking ahead. It has nothing to hide.

Gulags For American Citizens In Final Planning Stages
Halliburton sex slave trade criminals prepare camps for political dissidents



Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | March 1 2006

Bush administration and US army preparations to target American citizens and intern them in forced labor camps has vastly accelerated in the past month and commentators from all over the political spectrum are sounding the alarm bells that the round-ups may begin soon.

Once the bane of the media's stereotypical 'tin foil hat wearing' caricatures, concentration camps in America are now serious news and no one is laughing.

Following the news first given wide attention by this website, that Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root had been awarded a $385 million dollar contract by Homeland Security to construct detention and processing facilities in the event of a national emergency, the Alternet website put together an alarming report that collated all the latest information on plans to initiate internment of political subversives and Muslims after the next major terror attack in the US.

The article highlighted the disturbing comments of Sen. Lindsey Graham, who encouraged torture supporting Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to target, "Fifth Columnists" Americans who show disloyalty and sympathize with "the enemy," whoever that enemy may be.

It is important to stress that the historical precedent mirrors exactly what the Halliburton camp deal outlines. Oliver North's Reagan era Rex 84 plan proposed rounding up 400,000 refugees, under FEMA, in the event of "uncontrolled popu
