>NOTE FROM BOB:  Ladies and gentlemen, please read this carefully and
>thoroughly. This is not the figment of a fertile imagination. It is a devious
>by many previous administrations to replace America's sovereignty with
>It is TRUE. It is FEDERAL LAW. 1998 is meant to be The Year of FEMA.
>The Dark Under-belly
>Some people have referred to it as the "secret government" of the United
>It is not an elected body, it does not involve itself in public disclosures,
>and it
>even has a quasi-secret budget in the hundreds of billions of dollars.
>This government organization has more power than the President of the United
>States or the Congress, more power than "the people", it has the power to
>suspend laws, move entire populations, arrest and detain citizens without a
>warrant and hold them without trial, it can seize property, food supplies,
>portation systems, and can suspend the Constitution.
>Not only is it the most powerful entity in the United States, but it was not
>created under Constitutional law by the Congress. It was a product of a
>Presidential Executive Order. It is not the U.S. military nor the Central
>Intelligence Agency. These organizations are subject to the control of
>The organization is called FEMA, which stands for the Federal Emergency
>Management Agency. Originally conceived in the Richard Nixon Administration,
>it was refined by Jimmy Carter and given teeth in the Ronald Reagan and
>Bush Administrations.
>FEMA had one original concept when it was created, to ensure the
>of the United States government in the event of a nuclear attack on this
>It was also provided with the task of being a federal coordinating body
>times of domestic disasters, such as earthquakes, floods and hurricanes.
>awesome powers grew under the tutelage of people like Lt. Col. Oliver North
>and General Richard Secord, the architects on the Iran-Contra scandal and
>the looting of America's savings and loan institutions. FEMA has even been
>given control of the State Defense Forces, a rag-tag, often considered neo-
>Nazi, civilian army that will substitute for the National Guard, if the Guard
>called to duty overseas.
>Though it may be the most powerful organization in the United States, few
>people know it even exists. FEMA has crept into our private lives. Even mort-
>gage papers contain FEMA's name in small print if the property in question
>near a flood plain. FEMA was deeply involved in the Los Angeles riots and
>1989 Loma Prieta earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area. Some of the
>black helicopter traffic reported throughout the United States, but mainly in
>West, California, Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Colorado, are
>flown by FEMA personnel. FEMA has been given responsibility for many new
>disasters including urban forest fires, home heating emergencies, refugee
>situations, urban riots, and emergency planning for nuclear and toxic
>In the West, it works in conjunction with the Sixth Army.
>FEMA was created in a series of Executive Orders. A Presidential Executive
>Order, whether Constitutional or not, becomes law simply by its
publication in
>the Federal Register. Congress is by-passed.
>Executive Order Number 12148 created the Federal Emergency Management
>Agency that is to interface with the Department of Defense for civil defense
>planning and funding. An "emergency czar" was appointed. FEMA had spent
>only about 6 percent of its budget on national emergencies while the bulk of
>their funding had been used for the construction of ground facilitis to
>continuity of government in case of a major emergency, foreign or domestic.
>Executive Order Number 12656 appointed the National Security Council as
>the principal body that should consider emergency powers. This allows the
>government to increase domestic intelligence and surveillance of U.S.
>and would restrict the freedom of movement within the United States and
>the government the right to isolate large groups of civilians. The National
>could be federalized to seal all borders and take control of U.S. air space
>all ports of entry.
>Here are just a few Executive Orders associated with FEMA that would suspend
>the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. These Executive Orders have been on
>record for nearly 30 years and could be enacted by the stroke of a
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 ( 27 F.R. 1527 ) allows Secretary of Trans-
>     portation to take over ALL modes of transportation and control of
>     and seaports. It also gives the Secretary of Commerce full control of
>     production and distribution of ALL construction materials, gas, oil,
>     power as well as ALL civilian, private aviation facilities, highways
>     seaports.
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 ( 27 F.R. 1519 ) allows the government to
>     seize and control the communication media. It establishes the
>     Telecommunications Management Agency that provides for the "takeover"
>     of ALL communications media in the United States. This includes broad-
>     cast and cable television, ALL radio stations, ALL satelite earth
>     and satelites and ALL telephone companies and telephone systems in
>     the United States.
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 ( 27 F.R. 1522 ) allows the government to
>     take over ALL electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals. In
>     other words, ALL sources of energy.
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 ( 27 F.R. 1524 ) allows the Secretary of
>     Agriculture to take over ALL food resources and farms and farm
>     This means that all privately owned farmland and food resources will be
>     commandeered by the Federal Government, together with all farm
>     implements and equipment used to work this land. ALL will become the
>     properety of the Federal Government.
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 ( 27 F.R. 1532 ) allows the Secretary of Labor
>     to "mobilize" civilians into work brigades under government
>     That's right, every working American will be under the direct
>     the Federal Government. Where you work now or want to work in the
>     is not a consideration. You will be required to work where you are told
>     work. Have you ever considered the term "slave labor"?
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 ( 27 F.R. 1534 ) allows the Secretary of
>     Health, Education and Welfare to control ALL health services, doctors,
>     hospitals, etc., ALL welfare services and All educational programs and
>     facilities, public and private.
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 ( 27 F.R. 1539 ) designates the Postmaster
>     General to operate a national registration of ALL persons in the United
>     States. This will account for every American, his or her location and
>     "status".
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 ( 27 F.R. 1540 ) empowers the Federal
>     Aviation Administration to take over ALL airports and commandeer ALL
>     aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 ( 27 F.R. 1542 ) establishes the authority for
>     the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) to take control of ALL
>     lodging and community facilities in the United States. This means the
>     relocation, to a place of the government's choosing, of any part of the
>     population they choose to move. In other words, it doesn't matter where
>     you live now or what property you own, it will become the property of
>     It will relocate entire communities, build new housing with public
>     designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for
>     populations.
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 ( 27 F.R. 1544 ) empowers the Interstate
>     Commerce Commission to take over ALL railroads, inland waterways
>     and public storage facilities.
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 ( 27 F.R. 1688 ) specifies the responsibility
>     of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all
>     Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international or
>     domestic tensions and economic or financial crisis.
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 ( 32 F.R. 12877 ) directs the Department
>     of Justice to enforce the plans set out in All Executive Orders, to
>     industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to
>     all aliens, to operate ALL penal and correctional institutions, and to
>     and assist the President.
>     EXECUTIVE ORDER 11490 ( 34 F.R. 17567 ) authored by Richard Nixon
>     consolidates all previous Executive Orders into one act of law. It also
>     gave the Department of Justice the power to control "alien enemies" and
>     all "other aliens" and to provide for their location, relocation,
>     and/or custody. It also provides the power to seize ALL property of the
>     alien enemies and "other aliens". No definition of terms was given to
>     who "alien enemies" or "other aliens" are. It is left to the discretion
>of the
>     Department of Justice, i.e. Janet Reno! It allows the Federal Emergency
>     Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the
>     mechanisms of production and distribution of ALL energy sources, wages,
>     salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institutions in
>     undefined national emergency. It makes mandatory the confiscation and
>     control of ALL monetary items and the entire financial structure and
>     of the United States of America, public, private and institutional by
>     Secretary of the Treasury. It also provides that when a state of
>     is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six
>     months.
>And last but not least, on 20 July 1979 "You Can Trust Me" President Jimmy
>Carter authored Executive Order 12148 ( 44 F.R. 43239 ) which completes
>STATES OF AMERICA. In this E.O. President Carter places the powers
>previously given to separate agencies or departments/administrations under
>the SOLE CONTROL of FEMA - the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
>He also "handed off" to FEMA many powers previously held ONLY BY THE
>powers and duties of the President, in violation of the Constitution of the
>United States of America. All that is needed to implement these controls is
>the declaration of a national emergency by any President. Neither Congress,
>previous Presidents nor the courts have ever rendered a definition of a
>"National Emergency"!
>The Federal Emergency Management Agency has broad powers in every
>aspect of the nation. General Frank Salzedo, chief of FEMA's Civil Security
>Division stated in a 1983 conference that he saw FEMA's role as a "new
>frontier in the protection of individual and governmental leaders from
>assassination, and of civil and military installations from sabotage and/or
>attack, as well as prevention of dissident groups from gaining access to
>U.S. opinion, or a global audience in times of crisis."
>FEMA's powers were consolidated by President Carter to incorporate:
>     the National Security Act of 1947, which allows for the strategic
>     of industries, services, government and other essential economic
>     and to rationalize the requirements for manpower, resources and
>     facilities;
>     the 1950 Defense Production Act, which gives the President sweeping
>     powers over all aspects of the economy;
>     the Act of August 29, 1916, which authorizes the Secretary of the Army,
>     in time of war, to take possession of any transportation system for
>     transporting troops, material, or any other purpose related to the
>     emergency; and
> the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which enables the
>     President to seize the property of a foreign country or national.
>These powers were transferred to FEMA in a sweeping consolidation in 1979.
>FEMA's deceptive role really did not come to light with much of the public
>Hurricane Andrew smashed into the U.S. mainland. As Russell R. Dynes,
>director of the Disaster Research Center of the University of Delaware,
>in The World and I, "...The eye of the political storm hovered over the
>Emergency Management Agency. FEMA became a convenient target for
>criticism." Because FEMA was accused of dropping the ball in Florida, the
>media and Congress commenced to study this agency. What came out of
>the critical look was that FEMA was spending 12 times more for "black
>operations" than for disaster relief. It spent $4.3 billion building secret
>throughout the United States in anticipation of government disruption by
>or domestic upheaval. Fewer than 20 members of Congress, only members
>with top security clearance, know of the $4.3 billion expenditure by FEMA
>non-natural disaster situations. These few Congressional leaders state that
>FEMA has a "black curtain" around its operations. FEMA had worked on
>National Security programs since 1979, and its predecessor, the Federal
>Emergency Preparedness Agency, had secretly spent billions of dollars
>before being merged into FEMA by President Carter in 1979.
>FEMA has developed 300 sophisticated mobile units that are capable of
>sustaining themselves for a month. The vehicles are located in five areas of
>the United States. They have tremendous communication systems and
>each contains a generator that would provide power to 120 homes each, but
>have never been used for disaster relief.
>FEMA's enormous powers can be triggered easily. In any form of domestic
>or foreign problem, perceived and not always actual, emergency powers can
>be enacted. The President of the United States now has broader powers to
>declare martial law, which activates FEMA's extra-ordinary powers. Martial
>law can be declared during time of increased tension overseas, economic
>problems within the United States, such as a depression, civil unrest, demon-
>strations or scenes like the Los Angeles riots, and in a drug crisis. These
>Presidential powers haveincreased with successive Crime Bills, particularly
>the 1991 and 1993 Crime Bills, which increase the power to suspend the
>guaranteed under the Constitution and to seize property from those suspected
>of being drug dealers and to individuals who participate in a public protest
>demonstration. Under emergency plans already in existence, the power exists
>to suspend the Constitution and turn over the reigns of government to FEMA
>and appointing military commanders to run state and local governments.
>FEMA then would have the right to order the detention of anyone whom there
>is reasonable ground to believe...will engage in, or probably conspire with
>to engage in acts of espionage or sabotage. The plan also authorized the
>establishment of concentration camps for detaining the accused, but no trial.
>Three times since 1984, FEMA stood on the threshold of taking control of the
>nation, once under President Reagan in 1984, and twice under President Bush
>in 1990 and 1992. Under those three scenarios, there was not a sufficient
>to warrant risking martial law. Most experts on the subject of FEMA and
>Law insisted that a crisis has to appear dangerous enough for the people of
>United States before they would tolerate or accept complete government
>takeover. he typical crisis needed would be threat of imminent nuclear war,
>rioting in several U.S. cities simultaneously ala South Central Los Angeles
>and any other city, a series of national disasters that affect widespread
>to the populous, massive terrorist attacks, a depression in which tens of
>millions are unemployed and without financial resources, or a major
>environmental disaster.
>In April 1984, President Reagan signed Presidential Directive Number 54 that
>allowed FEMA to engage in a secret national "readiness exercise" under the
>code name of REX 84. The exercise was to test FEMA's readiness to assume
>military authority in the event of a "State of Domestic National Emergency"
>concurrent with the launching of a direct United States military operation
>Central America. The plan called for the deputation of U.S. military and
>National Guard units so that they could legally be used for domestic law
>enforcement. These units would be assigned to conduct sweeps and take
>into custody an estimated 400,000 undocumented Central American
>immigrants in the United States. The immigrants would be interned at 10
>detention centers to be set up at military bases and other detention centers
>throughout the country.
>REX 84 was so highly guarded that special metal security doors were placed
>on the fifth floor of the FEMA building in Washington, D.C. Even
>employees of the Civil Defense team of the Federal Executive Department
>possessing the highest possible security clearances were not being allowed
>through the newly installed metal security doors. Only personnel wearing a
>special ed Christian cross or crucifrx lapel pin were allowed into the
>Lt. Col. North was responsible for drawing up the emergency plan, which U.S.
>Attorney General William French Smith opposed vehemently. The plan called
>for the suspension of the Constitution, turning control of the government
>FEMA, appointment of military commanders to run state and local governments
>and the declaration of Martial Law. The Presidential Executive Orders to
>such a plan were already in place. The plan also advocated the rounding up
>and transfer to "assembly centers or relocation camps" of at least 21
>American Negroes in the event of massive rioting or disorder, not unlike the
>rounding up of the Jews in Nazi Germany in the 1930s.
>The second known time that FEMA stood by was in 1990 when Desert Storm
>was enacted. Prior to President Bush's invasion of Iraq, FEMA began to draft
>new legislation to increase its already formidable powers. One of the
>incorporated into the plan was to set up operations within any state or
>without the prior permission of local or state authorities. Such prior
>has always been required in the past. Much of the mechanism being set into
>place was in anticipation of the economic collapse of the Western World. The
>war with Iraq may have been conceived as a ploy to boost the bankrupt
>economy, but it only pushed the West into deeper recession. Please
>remember that a deep recession or all-out depression would be a cause for
>declaring martial law. Think of what the stock market is doing this week,
>1 to 7 Jan.
>The third scenario for FEMA came with the Los Angeles riots after the Rodney
>King brutality verdict. Had the rioting spread to other cities, FEMA would
>been empowered to act. As it was, major rioting only occurred in the Los
>Angeles area, thus preventing a pretext for a FEMA response.
>On July 5, 1987, the Miami Herald published reports on FEMA's new goals.
>The goal was to suspend the Constitution in the event of a national crisis,
>such as nuclear war, violent and wide- spread internal dissent, or national
>opposition to a U.S. military invasion abroad. Lt. Col. North was the
>National Security Directive Number 52 issued in August 1982, pertains to the
>"Use of National Guard Troops to Quell Disturbances."
>The crux of the problem is that FEMA has the power to turn the United States
>into a police state in time of a real crisis or a manufactured crisis. Lt.
>North virtually established the apparatus for dictatorship. Only the
>the Attorney General prevented the plans from being adopted. Intelligence
>reports indicate that FEMA has a folder with 22 Executive Orders for the
>President to sign in case of an emergency. It is believed those Executive
>Orders contain the framework of North's concepts, delayed by criticism but
>never truly abandoned.
>The crisis, as the government now sees it, is civil unrest. For generations,
>the government was concerned with nuclear war, but the violent and
>demonstrations that surrounded the Vietnam War era prompted President
>Nixon to change the direction of emergency powers from war time to times of
>domestic unrest. Diana Reynolds, program director of the Edward R. Murrow
>Center, summed up the dangers of FEMA today and the public reaction to
>Martial Law in a drug crisis: "It was James Madison's worst nightmare that
>a righteous faction would someday be strong enough to sweep away the
>Constitutional restraints designed by the framers to prevent the tyranny of
>centralized power, excessive privilege, an arbitrary governmental authority
>the individual. These restraints, the balancing and checking of powers among
>branches and layers of government, and the civil guarantees, would be the
>first the first casualties in a drug-induced national security state with
>Civil Emergency Preparedness unleashed. Nevertheless, there would be those
>who would welcome NSC (National Security Council) into the drug fray,
>believing that increasing state police powers to emergency levels is the
>way left to fight American's enemy within. In the short run a national
>state would probably be a relief to those whose personal security and
>of life has been diminished by drugs or drug related crime. And, as the
>general public watches the progression of institutional chaos and social
>decay, they
>too may be willing to pay the ultimate price, one drug free America for 200
>years of a free and dynamic republic. God forbid!
>The first targets in any FEMA emergency will be the hispanics and the blacks.
>FEMA's orders call for them to be rounded up and detained. Tax protesters,
>demonstrators against government military intervention outside U.S. borders,
>those who are ever vocal to point out the shortcomings of the government or
>the present administration and the grossly apparent usurpations of the
>citizens' rights by that government and people who maintain weapons in their
>homes are also targets. Operation Trojan Horse is a program designed to
>the identity of potential opponents to martial law. The operation set up by
>FBI at Burke, South Dakota (The Tri-State Militia) is an outstanding example
>of a Trojan Horse. The program lures potential protesters into public
>conducted by a leader of the people who advocates readiness and survival
>training. The list of names gathered at such meetings and rallies are
>computerized and then targeted in case of an emergency. Just a short time
>ago, the news broke of a highly sophisticated Top Secret computer system in
>the White House called WHO DB. It is reported that this data base contains
>over 200,000 persons. It tracks such things as whether the subject supports
>or opposes issues such as same sex marriages, gays in the military and
>whether the subject speaks out against the administration.
>Yes, patriots will be targeted!
>The most shining example of America to the world has been its peaceful
>transition of government from one administration to another. Despite crises
>of great magnitude, the United States has maintained its freedom and
>This nation now stands on the threshold of rule by non-elected people
>non-Constitutional powers. Even Congress cannot review a Martial Law action
>until six months after it has been declared. For the first time in American
>history, the reigns of government would not be transferred from one elected
>element to another. The Constitution of the United States will be
>The same Constitution that many of us swore to "support and defend
>against all enemies, foreign or DOMESTIC".
>     Dear God, where are my comrades,
>                   why do they not rally?!
>The scenarios established to trigger FEMA into action are generally found in
>the society of today; economic collapse, civil unrest, drug problems,
>attacks, distrust of the government by a majority of the people, protests
>against American intervention in a foreign country. With all of these
>existing, it could only be a matter of time until one of these triggers the
>emergency necessary to bring FEMA into action, and then it may be too late,
