FEMA Camps: Real or Imagined?

American Concentration Camps

The horror of the thought of a FEMA camp in America, similar to that of what happened in Germany may be realized. I do not know if there is any truth to these rumors and pictures and videos but you can google it yourself. I have tended to ignore the rumors as conspiracy theory extremists talk but when it starts getting national television shows such as Jesse Ventura's, it's time to question how much truth there is to it.

Rumors go from them to being death camps to camps set up to help us in times of trouble such as war. The idea of FEMA came up in a Senate bill. KBR’s call for FEMA camp service bids arrives soon after the Senate overwhelmingly passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which permits the military to detain and interrogate supposed domestic terror suspects in violation of the Fourth Amendment and Posse Comitatus.

Another link I visited stated this:"FEMA detention camps in the United States are preparing for civil unrest. Halliburton subsidiary KBR is seeking subcontractors to staff and outfit FEMA camps to deal with riots inside the United States. President Obama can implement martial law, and Senate Bill 1031 of the National Defense Authorization Act gives police and military authorization to round up American citizens to be snatched off the streets and held in detention camps."

Could this be a repition of Hitler's camps of death? Will they truly start putting people in these camps such as the 99% protestors? What about normal citizens who are just sick of the BS are government has been up to for the last forty years?

Or is this just an X-Files scare? Remember the motto "TRUST NO ONE"? Are the crazies getting crazier? Only the future can show that I guess, but the rumors have to at least make you wonder.


This idea is actually a good one if it is only used for terrorists. However, according to the rumors this is just an excuse to detain normal citizens who don't agree with what the government wants. For example, any group that is prepared to bear arms to make a statement will be thrown in a FEMA camp.

The worst of the rumors are that the government intends to imprison all of us and re-program us like a nightmare out of "1984" by George Orwell with Big Brother. The terrifying part of this book is that it was written so long ago and half of it has come true. The government definitely represents Big Brother and keeps an eye on what we are doing. Look at some of the new technology, satellites that can look right in your windows. They can follow what you are doing through your cell phone if necessary and soon enough, the "666" number will be imprinted in your forehead.

So are the rumors true? You decide.

Hey--interesting Hub. I've been paying some attention to this. Here's a thought. If the best case scenario was that these camps were just for the "terrorists" then the worst case scenario is, "What is a terrorist?" The definition is pretty broad and could include LOTS of people and different types of groups. Take a look a the Patriot Act. I think that life as we've known it will not be life as we know it in the (near) future because what we think we know may not be what is actually the case. I encourage you to keep on researching--try some alternative media sources. Thanks for writing!

"Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was a secretive "scenario and drill" developed by the United States federal government to suspend the United States Constitution, declare martial law, place military commanders in charge of state and local governments, and detain large numbers of American citizens who are deemed to be "national security threats", in the event that the President declares a "State of Domestic National Emergency". The plan states that events that might cause such a declaration would be widespread U.S. opposition to a U.S. military invasion abroad, such as if the United States were to directly invade Central America. To combat what the government perceived as "subversive activities", the plan also authorized the military to direct ordered movements of civilian populations at state and regional levels.

Rex 84 was written by Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North, who was both National Security Council White House Aide, and NSC liaison to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and John Brinkerhoff, the deputy director of "national preparedness" programs for FEMA. They patterned the plan on a 1970 report written by FEMA chief Louis Giuffrida, at the Army War College, which proposed the detention of up to 21 million "American Negroes", if there were a black militant uprising in the United States. Existence of a master military contingency plan (of which REX-84 was a part), "Garden Plot" and a similar earlier exercise, "Lantern Spike" were originally revealed by journalist Ron Ridenhour, who summarized his findings in an article in CounterSpy."

Signed into law by Ronald Reagan.

Heard a lot about FEMA camps during Bushco.

Somehow, I think white, Judeo-Christins have nothing to worry about.

I have done some research on FEMA camps and it is scary because there are dozens of executive orders that support the confinement of U.S. citizens in these camps and all that has to be done is for the president to sign them... no review... no passing through both houses just signed and enacted. It is ironic that u mentioned that u thought this was just a conspiracy theory. What is wrong with conspiracy theories. Conspiracy theories are theories that gather information to attempt to prove that two or more people plotted together to do something underhanded. Let me go out on a limb here. Has anyone seen any film footage of the plane supposedly flying into the Pentagon. We seen footage of the towers to the point that it is imbeeded in the American Pscyhy. There were 86 six cameras with a vantage point at the Pentagon that would have recorded the catastrophe. There were two videos, one from a nearby gas station and one from an adjacent Hotel that were confiscated 20 minutes after the explosion. Why if someone questions why they won't releaes footage of this tragic event do they get labeled as a conspiracy nut. I was alive when both Kennedys and Martin Lther King were shot and there were a multitude of questionable issues Surrounding all three murders but generations later because of the label conspiracy nut people who weren't alive back then can easily be convinced that these murders were random acts of violence by one crazed person in each case. If we play the FEMA camps off as the paranoid rantings of conspiracy nuts then we desrrve to live in these Halliburton built luxury suites of barbed wire and concrete.

Glenn Beck debunked the FEMA camps a long time ago on his TV show. I've looked at some of these conspiracy theory websites and they all have the same things in common.

No links to their sources.

Focus on the Trilateral Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations.

It's all a bunch of garbage designed to scare people.

There are plenty of REAL problems in the world right now to be concerned about like the unsustainable debt in Europe and the US that is likely to cause a global economic collapse. Plus the instability in the Mideast and Iran going nuclear.

The best thing we can all do is be informed and be prepared. I know there's a good possibility that we're in for global changes and upheaval, but I'm not afraid because I'm prepared.

Stock up on food, have some cash on hand, plus guns and ammunition. I'm really lucky because I live in a rural area far from population centers and know how to grow and preserve my own food.

Buckle up guys. It's going to be a bumpy ride!

Nothing like LMC coming by to continue the fear spreading and Bush bashing.

Look, the fact behind these was in response to the failures of Katrina. One of the main problems after any major disaster is what to do with the people displaced due to a disaster. There are only so many shelters in an area. Most times we use a public building, a school, sports arenas. In most disasters, those live in a shelter for a short time. If not they get put up in a hotel or FEMA puts a moblie home on the property until rebuilding is completed. Katrina showed we could not handle when tens of thousands get displaced all at once and for more than a few weeks. In addition, La was not willing to work with FEMA on temporary housing adding to the difficulty. A study in the aftermath showed a way to build short term housing to address the problem. The idea is to build safe secure temporary housing. These places will hold between 300 but no more than 3000 people and for a time period up to 30 days. The cotract is to include elctric, running water,HVAC, showers, providing food, doing the laundry at no cost to the residents and many more services to try to make the people comfortable. If we were going to hold people prisoner as many are fearing, it would be easier for the government to just open any one af the closed abandoned prisons that are around the country. People really need to not read more into something that is not there. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar

Uhhh, NOOOO AV...Reagan wasn't around for Katrina, nor was he prez in 1970.

He DID however, sign into law rex 84, written by Oliver Iran/Contra North.

These camps are built for "subversive" Americans. Whether they use them or not is another matter.

My feeling is they are meant for people of color, muslims, and those who oppose Zionism.

But that is just my feeling.

Again, more 1/2 truths. LMC, did you not know the US has had contigency plans just like Rex 84 going back to the 1950s? Of course you did not. Did you know the last two practiced waqs 1967 and 1971? Of course not. Did you know the plan run by North was patterned the plan on a 1970 report written by FEMA chief Louis Giuffrida, at the Army War College. Of course not. And did you know them FEMA plan this hubber wrote about is a different plan than those? Once more of course not. There is already a plan in place if the government to pick up subversives if they choose to. The plan here being discussed is a rapid disaster response project and it the reason people have heard about it is because the project is currently out for bid looking for participating contractors to meet the specs. The other plan, the one you fear is secret and you will never know the details of it until they knock on your door and round you up. LOL Just kidding on the round YOU up comment. Time has come for people to stop making mountains out of mole hills and present correct information

Here is one source and I can provide a dozen more for anyone having tribke verifyinf the feam camps. As for Glenn Beck he was none of the original fema camps alarmists but then all of a sudden he changed his mind. He used footage of sited not owned by fema and not even in this country. He also stopped at one point, looked into the camera and said"help they are making me say this stuff". So anyone who places their eggs in Glenn Becks' basket better like scrambled eggs. Anyone who depends on a talk show host for information should be in a twelve step program to recapture their sanity and develop a method for establishing convictions without submitting themselves to propaganda and brain washing

I'm an anti-Zionist....who runs the world these days?

We always hear Right Wingers acting like they are victims somehow....Just who is running who?

Fundies and Zios are safe. Anyone else better watch their p's and q's.

You all claim that lefties are the threat to freedoms...it's just the opposite.

The Corporate Military State is what we have to fear, IMO. Fascismo.

Jessie Ventura has one of the best shows on this topic. About 1/2 way through the video, he visits one of these FEMA Camps and speaks with a woman that comes to the door. She explains that if he has any questions about the purpose of the camps, that he can call ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Qx20LA4PM0

However, I think that it is very interesting that they have waited until there is civil unrest and the Occupy Wall Street Movement-- before they announced that they were hiring for positions in these camps. One of the last articles that I read on this said that they were planning to hire over 100,000 internment specialists, caterers, laundry personnel, etc.... -- and the army has just put up advertisements for employment at these facilities -- for the position of "Relocation Specialists".

ICE: http://www.ice.gov/

Here are the google links for Advertisements for FEMA Camp Employees: http://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&...

Here is the Advertisement for the FEMA Camp Internment and Resettlement Specialist: http://www.goarmy.com/careers-and-jobs/browse-care...

----------

Intuitively, I don't trust the new legislation that Congress has just passed. Bill 1867 basically tosses our Constitution into the toilet.

There are a number of very sketchy things going on right now that make the FEMA Camps seem much more than a mere "Conspiracy Theory". These are a Conspiracy FACT... why else would the govt. spend so much money building these?

----------

I've been covering the topic of "Chemtrails"-- this backs up into a LOT of different research rabbit holes, including Agenda 21... where they propose an 85% reduction in the World's Population. Michael Shaw has one of the most thorough reports on this. Check this video out-- it will explain a lot of what is going on now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_o8JJSNN6g

Please wake up America!!! It is happening whether we approve or not. Whether we protest and try to change, or not, it will come to pass. The end of America as the most powerfull Nation on this planet. Slowly but surely, wait a minute, actually quite rapidly, the Gov. and the tools in congress are passing laws and ammendments to current laws that give them (gov) soooo much power to do whatever they wish to, hello totaliterianism, while simultaneously slashing the laws and ammednments that this Country was initially built on! I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior! In doing so I stand fast to the acknowledgement that history will come to pass just like prophesied in the Holy Bible. But, have you heard the good news? Jesus died for yours and my sins and He loves us very much! Ask him into your heart and you too will understand about the events happening world wide that appear to be getting worse. I would love to join a "resistance to gov" group and do whatever they ask of me in order to further state my disgust with the current adminiastration! I understand it needs to happen but that doesn't mean its right. The way Dummy Obama is attacking our? country is disgusting!!! Why is it every thing Obama does is in direct contrast to the good of the USA ???? He is attacking our rights, right in front of our bleeping eyes! WAKE UP AMERICA. The time is now, just watch it get worse ten fold!

I have read and thought about the theory. I believe a lot of it, but I have been to a lot of the so called camps and they are not there. Ft mcclellan al, camp atterbury In, camp grayling, mi. Did not see anything. so that makes it harder to believe. also,Terre Haute federal pen does not have a large cremation furnace.

Rex84 is a hoax, first of all. secondly, what really is the pupose of detaining civilians in these 'camps'? when will this occur? how is it that NO ONE in the congress ever raised hell about these orders being ready to sign, without debate (as one commenter suggested). there is no justification here for all the fear, mistrust, and conspiracy-mongering. its ridiculous.


joe scalise 4 years ago

You really believe Congress would object. They can't handle the run of the mill operations of this country. The care about two thiugs money and re-election. If these are housing facilities for disaster victims why is there barbed wirs around them. If they are for terrorists why are there so maany of them. Smoke, how do you know Rex 84 is a hoax. Have you read the list of executive orders that are contingencies for martial law. Its the frog in hot water scenario. Put a frog in boiling water he will jump out put him in warm water and raise the temperature a few degrees at ati,me and he will stay and be boiled. The government has been eroding our freedoms a few degrees ata time and the grand finale mighht be boiling in FEMA camps.

People, do your homework. Look up Agenda 21. This is the root of what is actually going on right now. Papa Daddy Bush Senior, yes-- George W's daddy-- was the one that signed the USA into an alliance and soft treaty (Agenda 21) in the year 1992. This has been running as a soft treaty for now 20 years.

I found out about this about 8 or so months into the Chemtrail research, which I was pounding for about 12-18 hour days for over 8 or so months.

Agenda 21 is designed to handle the bulk of the Global population. It is a massive de-population plan with the intention to restructure the USA and create a sustainable environment that will end all personal property-- yes, that's right... farms, land, homes, and cars. Cars will be a thing of the past-- replaced with mass transportation (trolleys/trams/ trains/buses/etc...) located in bee hive type city units which are going to be built along mass transit location sites. About 80% of the United States is slated to be restored to wild-lands, where animals can roam free of human interaction.

You can quibble all you want to about the fact that FEMA camps and Rex 84 are a hoax, but do your homework on Agenda 21-- and you will find what I'm saying is the gospel truth.

Unless EACH state in the USA creates firm legislation to end Agenda 21 and the NDAA Bills, people (at some point) will be rounded up and will become a part of a massive DEPOPULATION routine (probably similar to Nazi Germany). This will NOT be a trip to Disneyland... so I highly recommend that EACH STATE take action NOW to abolish Agenda 21-- AND the NDAA Bill.
