What Are The FEMA "Internment" Camps Really For?

Updated on July 14, 2011

What Are FEMA Camps For?

Many informed Americans have become aware of suspicious FEMA camps that are located all over the United States. The fact that these exist is no longer a debate. Government officials have confirmed that.

The question now is, "What are these camps for?". Government and FEMA officials tell the media that the camps in the U.S. were setup as relief facilities for displaced disaster victims and such. However, the evidence points to a more sinister purpose.

Most of these camps are former military bases that have been converted into what looks like concentration camps. They are equipped with watchtowers, fences inward facing barbed wire, railroad access, helicopter pads, unmarked vans, large incinerators, etc.... All for your safety of course.

Is this being blown out of proportion by conspiracy theorists, or is there substance to their claims that FEMA is creating concentration camps in the United States? I'll present the evidence, you decide.

The Official FEMA Agenda

First, this would not be the first time that the U.S. has placed its own citizens into internment camps. In World War II, thousands of Japanese-Americans were forcefully detained in U.S. internment camps.

In 1984, President Regan signed Presidential Director Number 54, allowing FEMA to conduct a secret national readiness exercise. The exercise was code named REX 84. The purpose of REX 84 was to determine FEMA's ability to assume military authority.

In 2006, Kellogg, Brown and Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton, was awarded a $385 million dollar contract by Homeland Security to construct detention and processing facilities in the event of a national emergency.

Today, military urban warfare training drills are being conducted across the country. In these drills, role players are used to simulate arresting American citizens and taking them to internment camps.

There are over 800 confirmed FEMA camps in the United States and growing. However, a Google maps search of Rex 84 returns over 3,000 results. What are all of these camps for?

Why would the government ever need so many camps unless they are planning for martial law? What other purpose could logically call for such a high number of detainment facilities?

The largest confirmed FEMA detention camp, which is in Alaska, has the potential capacity limit of 2 million people. According to the U.S. Census, Alaska only contains 698,473 citizens.

The general consensus among independent investigators is that FEMA will use these locations for forced detention of American citizens in the case of widespread rioting after a natural disaster or economic collapse.

However, many of the official documents that have raised suspicion are riddled with open-ended definitions of what FEMA's full objectives and power entail. For some, the purposefully vague mandates are a sign of much more ominous intent.

      I hope you are right because in one picture you have of I can only guess could be a soldier-well if he is, he is not from our country. I feel really sorry for many of you because you have absolutely no knowledge of anything and credible evidence. Just go get that fat chick who insists slandering many in a video that showed not one ounce of truth.

      So lets dance and do the time warp(and no, the Rocky Horror Picture Show is not a foreshadowing what will come our way!)
