Homeland Security’s “Endgame”

I am writing this post mainly for all of my friends over at Mudflats (link to her site is in my blogroll). In the comment section on her site I mentioned NSPD51 and the possible implementation of martial law in this country. With my posting of the text of that act I believe that most of the readers now believe that such a bill exists and that Bush can implement the act if he decides to do so, but most seem fairly well convinced that he wont. I myself, don’t actually think that he will because it could cause the largest rebellion against the government in our nation’s history. However, after watching his speech this morning on the economy which was short and vague on details (always that “vague” thing when he speaks) but essentially the plan is for the federal government to take over our biggest financial institutions (banks, insurance and stock markets) and to put restrictions on smaller stock companies (many stocks are banned from trading) to keep their sales from driving down the sales on larger stocks (don’t take trades away from the filthy rich?). I can’t make any claims on their broader goals or the details of their plans because they didn’t give any details, just a vague overview.

  However, on the rules set down by Bush in NSPD51, the conditions that would warrant implementation and enforcement of the Presidential Directive includes any danger to our country, including natural disaster, war, and yes, even a economic crisis. So almost all of his conditions on implementing NSPD51 are now a reality. The only problem would be in how to control a very upset population should he decide to put martial law into effect.

   In a Homeland Security measure which they have named “Endgame” the problem with citizen unrest has been addressed. Across the country there have been a series of installations set up and prepared to serve as concentration camps for, believe it or not, American citizens. Most of these facilities are now empty, but most have room to hold up to 200,000 inmates each.

  Here is where the comments should start with the “conspiracy theory” claims. But this is a bit more than a conspiracy theory. The Endgame directive set up by Homeland Security is very real and the existence of the camps has been verified and was reported on by the SanFrancisco Chronicle in February.

  Biginning in 1999 the Halliburton subsidiary, Kellogg, Brown and Root  has been under a 385 million dollar contract to build a series of detention centers at undisclosed locations across the U.S. while other companies have been contracted to build a fleet of railcars equipped with shackles, apparently for transporting detainees.

According to author Peter Dale Scott, the contract is part of a Homeland Security plan called ENDGAME, which sets as its goal the removal of “all removable aliens” and “potential terrorists.”

 But, this is all conjecture for the most part and there has been no documentation released to the public concerning these contracts or the implications intended. The has been speculation into the professed claims that these dentention centers are for the holding of immigrants here illegally should we suffer another terror attack like 9/11. But 9/11 happened in 2001, these contracts were drawn up in 1999, so I find it hard to believe that these camps could have been planned as a response to 9/11.

  The main thing that concerns me, and should concern everyone is the Presidents Directive and whether or not he would actually try to suspend elections and place a martial law order into effect. Former Congressman, Dan Hamburg seems to think so, and he tried to warn us of the implications behind NSPD51 almost a year ago.

This is an excerpt from an article in the SanFrancisco Chronicle dated feb. 4th 2008:

“Fraud-busters such as Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Los Angeles, have complained about these contracts, saying that more taxpayer dollars should not go to taxpayer-gouging Halliburton. But the real question is: What kind of “new programs” require the construction and refurbishment of detention facilities in nearly every state of the union with the capacity to house perhaps millions of people?

Sect. 1042 of the 2007 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), “Use of the Armed Forces in Major Public Emergencies,” gives the executive the power to invoke martial law. For the first time in more than a century, the president is now authorized to use the military in response to “a natural disaster, a disease outbreak, a terrorist attack or any other condition in which the President determines that domestic violence has occurred to the extent that state officials cannot maintain public order.”

The Military Commissions Act of 2006, rammed through Congress just before the 2006 midterm elections, allows for the indefinite imprisonment of anyone who donates money to a charity that turns up on a list of “terrorist” organizations, or who speaks out against the government’s policies. The law calls for secret trials for citizens and noncitizens alike.

Also in 2007, the White House quietly issued National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD-51), to ensure “continuity of government” in the event of what the document vaguely calls a “catastrophic emergency.” Should the president determine that such an emergency has occurred, he and he alone is empowered to do whatever he deems necessary to ensure “continuity of government.” This could include everything from canceling elections to suspending the Constitution to launching a nuclear attack. Congress has yet to hold a single hearing on NSPD-51.

U.S. Rep. Jane Harman, D-Venice (Los Angeles County) has come up with a new way to expand the domestic “war on terror.” Her Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 (HR1955), which passed the House by the lopsided vote of 404-6, would set up a commission to “examine and report upon the facts and causes” of so-called violent radicalism and extremist ideology, then make legislative recommendations on combatting it.

According to commentary in the Baltimore Sun, Rep. Harman and her colleagues from both sides of the aisle believe the country faces a native brand of terrorism, and needs a commission with sweeping investigative power to combat it.

A clue as to where Harman’s commission might be aiming is the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, a law that labels those who “engage in sit-ins, civil disobedience, trespass, or any other crime in the name of animal rights” as terrorists. Other groups in the crosshairs could be anti-abortion protesters, anti-tax agitators, immigration activists, environmentalists, peace demonstrators, Second Amendment rights supporters … the list goes on and on. According to author Naomi Wolf, the National Counterterrorism Center holds the names of roughly 775,000 “terror suspects” with the number increasing by 20,000 per month.”

Watch this video from C-SPAN news.

So, anyway, I believe I would like to conclude this by saying that I am not a conspiracy theorist, nor do I fully believe that the president would go to these drastic measures to control the populace of our country. But there is no way to deny that the possibility does exist, and that the conditions stated by Bush needed to impliment theis directive are already happening, 1) War. 2) Natural disaster (Ike). 3) an economic crisis (uh,,do we have one of those now?) and 4) A percieved increased threat from abroad or from terrorists (Iran, Pakistan).

  Treat this information however you wish, but don’t just discount it as a conspiracy theory. It probably wont happen and I sincerely hope it doesn’t, but we all must realize that the possibility is there, and the only one who can make that decision is George Bush.

  1. I think these detention centers are being set up for the supposed pandemic the bird flu…and anyone who refuses the vaccine (which will most likly kill us)see the series of 12 you tubes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLT0_xMeLjI
    and google coffins in georga on you tube. They show coffins being lined up for (us) and the detention centers that are in every state.
    VERY SCARY!

  2. There was mention of avian flu is some of the research that I did on this and that was mentioned as a possible use in the beginning, however, with NSPD51 and HR1955, which gives the president the right to call martial law and the right to hold suspected “homegrown terrorists” without charges indefinately, and the shackled railcars that are being built (I don’t think they would put people in shackles for having bird flu, but I could be wrong on that) I believe they are being set up for citizens who go against the use of martial law. They already have over 750,000 names on their list of suspected terrorists and the list grows by about 20,000 per month so I suspect much of that room is for them.

  3. […] National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive […]

  4. Absolutely fucking frightening. I had to change my BVDs at least three times. I’ve read up on a lot of this, and it’s completely plausible.

    THIS IS WHY WE HAVE A SECOND AMENDMENT, Ladies and Gentlemen. The question remains whether brother will fight against brother again; once again to save the Republic…only this time from ourselves.

  5. Ok, this is not just a tin-foil conspiricy theory ohhh you’re just trying to scare people… well go ahead, scare people… we should be scared…
