Operation: Garden Plot

During my look into the theories surrounding REX84, FEMA death camps, and Fusion Centers I came across the over-arching plot that these things are allegedly apart of. In the 1960’s, during a time of massive social upheaval, the United States government developed a plan to have assets in place for large scale social unrest. This plan would be called Operation Garden Plot and over the years it has been re-evaluated and revamped to deal with new threats and civil disorder.

Article One of the United States Constitution reads…”Congress shall have power... to provide for calling forth the Militia to execute laws of the Union, suppress insurrections, and repel invasions." The Constitution also empowers the President with the authority to put down insurrections, rebellion, and civil unrest. Essentially this means that when the proverbial “crap hits the fans” here at home, Congress and the President both have to authority to exercise the power to put it down.

That ever present sticking point known as the Posse Comitatus Act, however, prohibits the use of the federal military in a law enforcement role within the boundaries of the United States. What few people fail to realize is that the Posse Comitatus Act also gives the President all the authority he needs in the event of a dire necessity to employ the U.S. armed forces for just that purpose.

During the 1960’s, a time that fundamentally changed the fabric of this nation, the federal government sought to come up with a plan in the event that any of the movements gathering strength became too much for local authorities to handle. All branches of the United States armed forces have a coordinated plan in the unlikely event that this plan is called into action. The idea that a federal government would have this type of plan in place should not come as surprise to anyone; one would think people should be more upset if the government didn’t have such a plan.

I imagine that the perfect example of how this plan should have been implemented is in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. As we all know, the city descended into chaos following the Hurricane and people were looting, rioting, robbing, raping, and pillaging throughout the city. Rightly, the country was outraged as we saw the video on our television screens for months, blaming those in charge for their incompetence.

If my understanding of Garden Plot is correct, and I believe I am giving an accurate representation of it, the process would have begun at the Fusion Center, where the information of what was going down and where would be analyzed and prioritized. Working in conjunction with the local authorities, the armed forces working as part of REX84 and Garden Plot would have gone about the tasks of dealing with the chaos that griped New Orleans.

These so-called FEMA death camps would most certainly not been death camps at all, but merely a location for those who had lost their homes to temporarily reside. We all remember the FEMA trailers used after Katrina, and I’m in no position to debate the FEMA trailers viability because I haven’t looked into it a great deal, and I believe that this would be type of situation that these programs would implement.

This is not if course what many conspiracy theorists believe, hard to imagine I know. Their interpretation of what these programs and facilities are meant for is far more ominous, and far more conspiratorial.

In their wild interpretation, the Fusion Centers are currently collecting intelligence about private citizens and enterprise, for use when the New World Order sets there plan for global domination into action from their luxurious compound under Denver International Airport; ok so I threw that last tidbit out in sarcasm.

Once the plan has been set in motion, the Fusion Centers will serve as a clearing house for locating and rounding up dissidents. This part of the process will be carried out members of the armed forces working under the auspices of REX84. These groups will allegedly begin rounding up the many targets, as determined by information gather at the Fusion Center, deemed to be “enemies of the state”.

Finally, the dissidents rounded up by members of the REX84 forces would then be imprisoned in one of the hundreds of suspected FEMA death camps located throughout the country. These camps will confine those dissidents and preparing them for their ultimate demise, similar to the concentration camps of the Holocaust. There are even those that claim to have seen these camps and who also claim to have evidence that these places are fully staffed and ready to go.

This whole thing is enough to make a person’s head spin, the elaborate theories included in this particular conspiracy indicate that level of instability included in this school of thought. I know that I am not in the minority when I say that I certainly want for my government to have a plan of action for dealing with a chaotic situation like the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The purpose of the REX84 plan and the function of the Fusion Centers is a valid program to have in place, the notion that there is any such thing as a FEMA death camp is absolutely absurd.

      I'm sure that comment really had the wheels turning, it's unfortunate that the lip had been snipped, I would have liked to see it. More than anyone the President really has to watch the terms that he uses when he's before the public, I doubt that he meant the sort of internment camps that this theory entails but many would have interpreted it that way. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my hub.

      While I was subbing for a school district some time back, the CNN was on TV during part of the class, playing the same stories over and over for the students to get some information about the world news. On one clip, President Bush was talking about the H5N1 virus and he said that there were already places that people with the H5N1 virus would be taken for quarantine purposes. This was referred to as internment camps. Funny, though, this little segment of the broadcast was never played again during the day. It had been snipped!

      I agree but I think we've established that the idea of a death camp is absurd, the idea of a FEMA established temporary shelter is most likely the intent of the provisions of Garden Plot and REX84. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my hub.

      While the idea of FEMA Death Camps may be absurd, sometimes absurd ideas have a tinge of reality in them. Great write.
