My father once brought up the topic of FEMA internment camps and what role they would play when the president declares marshal law. The topic intrigued me. I recently overheard two people discussing this matter. The following is a dramatization of that conversation in response to the Writing 101 blogging assignment “give and take.”
“What is the Federal Emergency Management Agency?” asked Robins.
“Simple. It is the secret government that has powers and authority that go well beyond any other agency in the nation,” said Williams.
“What do you mean? What can FEMA do?” Robins wanted to know.
“It can suspend laws. It can move entire populations. It can arrest and detain citizens without a warrant and can hold them without a trial. It can seize property, food supplies, and transportation systems. And it can even suspend the Constitution of the United States,” said Williams.
“I don’t understand. How is that legal?” asked Robins.
“Well, FEMA allows the White House to suspend the Constitutional government on declaration of a national emergency. A series of executive orders was used to create FEMA. It doesn’t matter whether an executive order is Constitutional or not. It becomes law simply by being published in the Federal Registry. These orders go around Congress,” said Williams.
“Yeah, but I understood the original concept, the original mission of FEMA, was to assure the survivability of the United States Government in the event of a nuclear attack. Its secondary function was to be a Federal coordinating body during times of domestic disasters like earthquakes, floods, and hurricanes,” said Robins.
“There are secret black helicopters that are reported throughout the country, mainly in the west in California, Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Colorado. They are flown by FEMA personnel. FEMA has been given the responsibility for many new national disasters such as forest fires, home heating emergencies, refugee situations, riots, and emergency planning for nuclear and toxic incidents. It works together with the Sixth Army in the west,” said Williams.
“How is any of this right, though? We live in a free country. It’s a government of the people, by the people and for the people,” said Robins.
“We have to be prepared for insurgency. We have to maintain control. Can you imagine if the banking system collapsed? Or if race riots broke out in all the major cities? We have to have a way to ensure that the government can continue to operate. That the United States survives,” said Williams.
“This sounds a lot like The Hunger Games,” said Robins. “I’ve read online that the Marines will be in charge. That FEMA is only a front for these operations, and that in fact it would be the military and possibly the UN operating the internment camps,” said Robins.
“Look, we have to maintain order,” said Williams.
“What about the idea that citizens will be separated into who shall live and who shall die? There will be lists of people, once arrested under martial law. The so-called FEMA Red and Black lists. When people come up Red Flagged, they will be arrested and taken to the camps, but they will be considered salvageable. They can be rehabilitated or re-educated. But people who are Black Flagged, they will be arrested and put to death. No questions asked,” said Robins.
“You’re reading the wrong Internet sites,” said Williams.
“And Christians see the writing on the wall. There are many more believers in the United States than you might think. And by God’s grace God is raising up more and more committed and informed Christians who see the new world order and the coming martial law tyranny for what it is in light of Scripture, and who are going to their commander-in-chief, God Almighty, for wisdom, and counsel, and direction,” said Robins.
“Well, I, for one, am glad our government is prepared for riots and uprisings,” said Williams.
“And what about the 500,000 plastic air-tight coffins in the middle of Atlanta, Georgia. Apparently, the government is expecting a half a million people to die relatively soon, and the Atlanta Airport is a major airline traffic hub. Probably the biggest in the country, which means Georgia is a prime base to conduct military operations and coordination. It is also the home of the Centers for Disease Control. I don’t want to sound like an alarmist, but usually you don’t buy 500,000 plastic coffins just in case something happens. You buy them because you know something is going to happen. These air tight containers would be perfect to bury victims of plague or biological warfare, wouldn’t they?” said Robins.
“Yeah, well the lot they filmed for that Internet story is a Vantage storage facility in Madison, Georgia. Of the 900,000 or so in-ground burials in America each year, a small percentage of those people pre-arrange their own caskets and vaults, which Vantage holds at the storage facility until the appropriate time. According to the company vice president of operations, Michael Lacey, there are approximately 50,000 vaults in storage in Madison. It’s nowhere near the quantity they talk about on the Internet. Lacey also said the company maintains detailed records of product ownership, and it’s audited annually to insure all vaults are accounted for,” said Williams.
“So you’re in denial about what FEMA’s real power is?” said Robins.
“I really think you need to reconsider what you believe when you surf the Internet,” said Williams.
“And I think you need to take a good, hard look at what’s really going on. I, for one, am not going anywhere when the UN troops come barreling down my street. I have plenty of fire power in my basement. They’re not taking me without a fight,” said Robins.
“Looks like we’re just going to have to agree to disagree,” said Williams.
