When they crash the United States dollar, and they will, we will fall into utter chaos……..and the nationwide martial law and FEMA camps that they have been preparing and legislating for us in our very own Congress will be activated.
J. Micha-el Thomas Hays (Rise of the New World Order: The Culling of Man)
New Rule: Since Glenn Beck is clearly onto us, liberals must launch our plan for socialist domination immediately. Listen closely, comrades, I've received word from General Soros and our partners in the UN--Operation Streisand is a go. Markos Moulitsas, you and your Daily Kos-controlled army of gay Mexican day laborers will join with Michael Moore's Prius tank division north of Branson, where you will seize the guns of everyone who doesn't blame America first, forcing them into the FEMA concentration camps. That's where ACORN and I will re-educate them as atheists and declare victory in the war on Christmas.
Bill Maher (The New New Rules: A Funny Look At How Everybody But Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass)
Both the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of the Interior removed from their websites the links to climate change data. The USDA removed the inspection reports of businesses accused of animal abuse by the government. The new acting head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Mick Mulvaney, said he wanted to end public access to records of consumer complaints against financial institutions. Two weeks after Hurricane Maria, statistics that detailed access to drinking water and electricity in Puerto Rico were deleted from the FEMA website. In a piece for FiveThirtyEight, Clare Malone and Jeff Asher pointed out that the first annual crime report released by the FBI under Trump was missing nearly three-quarters of the data tables from the previous year.
Michael Lewis (The Fifth Risk)
Instead, states are forced to buy vital supplies from private contractors; the federal government commandeers those supplies, and then FEMA distributes them back to private contractors, who then resell them.
Mary L. Trump (Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man)
On Rachel's show for November 7, 2012: Ohio really did go to President Obama last night. and he really did win. And he really was born in Hawaii. And he really is legitimately President of the United States, again. And the Bureau of Labor statistics did not make up a fake unemployment rate last month. And the congressional research service really can find no evidence that cutting taxes on rich people grows the economy. And the polls were not screwed to over-sample Democrats. And Nate Silver was not making up fake projections about the election to make conservatives feel bad; Nate Silver was doing math. And climate change is real. And rape really does cause pregnancy, sometimes. And evolution is a thing. And Benghazi was an attack on us, it was not a scandal by us. And nobody is taking away anyone's guns. And taxes have not gone up. And the deficit is dropping, actually. And Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction. And the moon landing was real. And FEMA is not building concentration camps. And you and election observers are not taking over Texas. And moderate reforms of the regulations on the insurance industry and the financial services industry in this country are not the same thing as communism. Listen, last night was a good night for liberals and for democrats for very obvious reasons, but it was also, possibly, a good night for this country as a whole. Because in this country, we have a two-party system in government. And the idea is supposed to be that the two sides both come up with ways to confront and fix the real problems facing our country. They both propose possible solutions to our real problems. And we debate between those possible solutions. And by the process of debate, we pick the best idea. That competition between good ideas from both sides about real problems in the real country should result in our country having better choices, better options, than if only one side is really working on the hard stuff. And if the Republican Party and the conservative movement and the conservative media is stuck in a vacuum-sealed door-locked spin cycle of telling each other what makes them feel good and denying the factual, lived truth of the world, then we are all deprived as a nation of the constructive debate about competing feasible ideas about real problems. Last night the Republicans got shellacked, and they had no idea it was coming. And we saw them in real time, in real humiliating time, not believe it, even as it was happening to them. And unless they are going to secede, they are going to have to pop the factual bubble they have been so happy living inside if they do not want to get shellacked again, and that will be a painful process for them, but it will be good for the whole country, left, right, and center. You guys, we're counting on you. Wake up. There are real problems in the world. There are real, knowable facts in the world. Let's accept those and talk about how we might approach our problems differently. Let's move on from there. If the Republican Party and the conservative movement and conservative media are forced to do that by the humiliation they were dealt last night, we will all be better off as a nation. And in that spirit, congratulations, everyone!
Rachel Maddow
ID issue would bedevil countless FEMA officials in the days ahead—the agency’s barebones IDs, which lacked many standard government markings like an authorizing signature or specific statute citations, were repeatedly barred by skeptical security personnel. Once

Most seemed to have been prepping for the Obama apocalypse, the one with FEMA storm trooping in, black helicopters dispatched by the first black president, come to seize their guns, hustling them off to camps where they’d be forced to read the Koran, eat kale, who knew what, while they waited to be dragged before death panels.
David Sosnowski (Happy Doomsday)
I am extremely concerned that the ability of our nation to prepare for and respond to disasters has been sharply eroded. I hear from emergency managers, local and state leaders, and first responders nearly every day that the FEMA they knew and worked well with has now disappeared. In fact one state emergency manager told me, “It is like a stake has been driven into the heart of emergency management.”827
Michael Greger (How to Survive a Pandemic)
A similar bout of affective realism gave birth to Florida’s controversial “Stand Your Ground” law. This law permits the use of deadly force in self-defense if you reasonably believe you’re in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm. A real-life incident was the catalyst for the law, but not in the way that you might think. Here’s how the story is usually told: In 2004, an elderly couple was asleep in their trailer home in Florida. An intruder tried to break in, so the husband, James Workman, grabbed a gun and shot him. Now here’s the true, tragic backstory: Workman’s trailer was in a hurricane-damaged area, and the man he shot was an employee of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The victim, Rodney Cox, was African American; Workman is white. Workman, mostly likely under the influence of affective realism, perceived that Cox meant him harm and opened fire on an innocent man. Nevertheless, the inaccurate first story became a primary justification for Florida’s law.47
Lisa Feldman Barrett (How Emotions Are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain)
For three days, Charity Hospital, one of the biggest facilities in the country, had somehow fallen off the government’s disaster management radar screen, and no help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or the National Guard arrived. “On day three and day four, we were told, at least twice, ‘Pack your bags, they’re coming

It turns out U.S. Representative Steve Cohen from Tennessee, who was interviewed for the Conspiracy Theory “Police State” FEMA camp segment, pressured TruTV to pull it from airing again and to have it removed from people’s DVRs if they had recorded it, which Time Warner cable did without notice to anyone who had it stored on their DVRs at home.654 U.S.

After Trump took office, DJ Patil watched with wonder as the data disappeared across the federal government. Both the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of the Interior removed from their websites the links to climate change data. The USDA removed the inspection reports of businesses accused of animal abuse by the government. The new acting head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Mick Mulvaney, said he wanted to end public access to records of consumer complaints against financial institutions. Two weeks after Hurricane Maria, statistics that detailed access to drinking water and electricity in Puerto Rico were deleted from the FEMA website. In a piece for FiveThirtyEight, Clare Malone and Jeff Asher pointed out that the first annual crime report released by the FBI under Trump was missing nearly three-quarters of the data tables from the previous year. “Among the data missing from the 2016 report is information on arrests, the circumstances of homicides (such as the relationships between victims and perpetrators), and the only national estimate of annual gang murders,” they wrote. Trump said he wanted to focus on violent crime, and yet was removing the most powerful tool for understanding

Who’s the we?” Lexi asked, stepping back. Dotty gave her a playful punch on the arm. “The good guys,” she said. “Your friendly local government and FEMA overlords.

Evacuees in the shelters would sleep alternating head-to-toe, “the best position for sleep, in that it decreases the spread of respiratory ailments,” explained FEMA’s comprehensive 1981 guide, How to Manage Congregate Lodging Facilities and Fallout Shelters.

roadway, got trapped under an overpass. FEMA created its own mobile command center effort, known as Mobile Emergency Response Support (MERS) units—eventually building some 300 special vehicles and stationing them across the country at regional command centers. The convoys, the thinking went, would be able to range across the nation, one step ahead of any Soviet attacks, hiding in the vast portions of the country that would be unscathed by nuclear attack. The convoys were meant to be entirely self-sufficient for a month, carrying massive generators and specially equipped fuel tankers that could draw diesel fuel from abandoned gas stations across the country. Meanwhile, a network of as many as 500 radio towers known as GWEN, the Ground Wave

Together, they represented a vast bureaucracy hidden in plain sight: For every dollar that FEMA spent preparing for natural disasters, the agency’s public purpose, it spent $12 preparing for nuclear war and running COG programs. Nearly a third of FEMA’s entire workforce existed in the secret black budget, known to only twenty members of Congress and completely unknown to the general public. The innocuous-sounding National Program Office, run by Vice President George H.

few civilians understood that so much of FEMA’s resources went to its primary mission behind the scenes—coordinating the nation’s COG efforts—and that much of its funding was actually classified, hidden in the nation’s black budget. Under

The programs and planning are buried inside innocuous-sounding entities like the Pentagon’s Center for National and Nuclear Leadership Command Capability, FEMA’s Special Programs Division, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s Balanced Survivability Assessment branch, or the Joint System Engineering and Integration Office (JSEIO) at the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).

Michael Lewis (The Fifth Risk)
As noted in Chapter 4, there’s abundant evidence that presidents use their disaster-declaration authority under the Stafford Act to aid their own reelection prospects. Presidents direct more disaster relief to politically important states and declare more disasters in election years—and the average number of yearly disaster declarations has been increasing over time.35 Bill Clinton still holds the election-year record, with 75 disaster declarations in 1996; George W. Bush came in a close second in 2004, and has declared disasters at a faster rate overall than Clinton.
Gene Healy (The Cult of the Presidency: America's Dangerous Devotion to Executive Power)
Even the measures of food were confusing and FEMA had no way of understanding what was going on. The Red Cross talked about pounds of food, while others were talking about pallets. We preferred to talk about meals, which was actually what FEMA’s contracts specified. All these counts went into a big Excel spreadsheet that FEMA maintained and emailed every day. At the bottom of the spreadsheet, the total count of food was supposed to be there for everyone to see. Instead, the count was a calculating error because there was no standard unit of food that everyone used. If FEMA couldn’t manage a spreadsheet, how could it manage an emergency?
José Andrés (We Fed an Island: The True Story of Rebuilding Puerto Rico, One Meal at a Time)
Of course, the President retains the power to actually declare an emergency, but as soon as he does that, the implementation of the measures utilized will be transferred directly to the Director of FEMA.

[Added before press time: H.R. 4079 may have been secretly passed just as S.B. 2834 was passed and H.R. 4079 may be Public Law 101-647 signed into law by President Bush on November 29, 1990. If this has occurred, then we are already subject to a FEMA takeover. I am attempting to acquire a copy of P.L. 101-647. This late-breaking new was furnished by a Congressional staff member and has not been verified as of January 8,1991.]

Delays in incorporation of companies, lack of early stage (essentially seed or angel) funding, limited options around employee stock options, insolvency laws, lack of access to external commercial borrowing, and the cumbersome Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) are only some of the constraints budding start-ups encounter.
Bharat Joshi (Navigating India: $18 Trillion Opportunity)
Fugate had pinpointed the failure of large transformers as one of his greatest areas of concern: “If you cause overloads and you cause significant damage to the very large transformers, that’s probably one of the most difficult things” for us to respond to, “because there [are] very few manufactured in the United States.” Asked what he would say were Jeh Johnson or the president to ask whether FEMA was prepared for such a scenario, Fugate responded bluntly, “No.

The “common good principle” requires that secure communities come from having a well-funded infrastructure. This means funding not only police and fire departments but also departments like FEMA, the Army Corps of Engineers, the National Weather Service, and a public health infrastructure—as well as good schools and universal health care. Thus, a strong infrastructure is crucial to security. So

Steven Pinker (Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress)
The government’s primary concern is the continuity of government, not the people, or their lives and families. Take a look at what they did following Katrina. Thousands of people showed up offering help, food, supplies and medical care, all for free. FEMA sent them all away while people suffered and died in their homes. When official help did arrive, it was too little, too late, and people were required to leave their pets behind.
D.F. Capps (Meteor Storm)
As soon as the election in the United States is over with, Karimi will make his move. He has been looking forward to this for a very long time, as I have. What’s the report from the FEMA Camps and the round-up?” “The round-up of the small churches and synagogues is nearly complete. From what camp commanders have told me, very few of the Christians and the Jews have done much in the way of physical resistance, and that disappoints them. They’d like to bash some heads in, although some of them might anyway, since the passive resistance is getting on their nerves. Not like anyone outside of the camp would know anyway,” “That’s good to hear. After the election, you can step it up, and then no one will be in our way. I’ll talk to you again after the election. Have a great day, David.

Being able to quickly move away from established plans, procedures, and capabilities, and utilize reflective learning tools, is a capability that FEMA has not yet identified.

To show just how all pervasive the Committee of 300 is, a few words about the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), a Club of Rome creation and the test it ran against a nuclear power station at Three Mile Island (TMI) Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, seems in order. Termed “an accident” by a hysterical media, this was not an accident, but a deliberately designed plot to reverse favorable public opinion to nuclear power generated electricity. TMI was a crisis test for FEMA. An additional benefit was the fear and hysteria provoked by the news media, which had people fleeing the area, when in fact they were never in any danger. Bear in mind that nobody died as a result of the TMI “accident,” nor were any serious injuries reported. The stage-managed incident bore all the hall marks of a similar incident when Orson Wells scared New York and New Jersey half to death with claims that the world was being invaded by alien beings from Mars. Actually, the radio play was an adaptation of H.G. Wells “War of Worlds.” TMI was considered a success and gained favor with the anti-nuclear forces, as it provided the rallying point for the so-called “environmentalists,” well financed by Atlantic Richfield and other major oil companies and

Order 21 would include the design plans for FEMA Camps, how they would be supplied, loyalty oaths for everyone who worked under Order 21, how the TSA and EPA would assist the United Nations with Agenda 21, and even how they would disband Congress and the Supreme Court. Order 21 would enable Martial Law and make it known that the United Nations had established a military presence throughout the borders of the United States since the early 2010’s.
Cliff Ball (Times of Turmoil)
Some, who were so alert to their surroundings that they were paranoid, would spread the decades old rumor about the government and FEMA Camps, while most everyone in their circle, especially everyone under thirty, would dismiss it as paranoia. The people who believed everything the government told them, which was now the majority, would have no problem believing these various big digs were related to energy production, such as finding more coal, digging up minerals, or even putting in pipelines for oil distribution. The years spent on indoctrinating the young of America had finally paid off in Michael’s opinion, and with it produced some amazingly compliant citizens.
Cliff Ball (Times of Turmoil)
worked hard for fifty years to get to this moment in time and I’m not going to see it fail. We have the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the TSA, FEMA, and other departments, and they have been waiting for Order 21 to be activated for the past several decades. Once ordered, it will be very hard for any opposition to try to overturn it. It will be in stages, with the final stage being leader of the whole world.
Cliff Ball (Times of Trial: an End Times Thriller (The End Times Saga 3))
We have our orders from DHS, we’ve made sure each location has been scouted, and that each person we’re set to arrest is accounted for. We should be able to get through this with a minimum amount of bloodshed, at least in theory. If you have to use your weapons, make sure the neighborhoods surrounding the buildings are secure and none of the neighbors hear gunfire. We have a limited amount of time each week to do this, so it will take us a few weeks to round up all of the people we need to round up. Once we get the people rounded up, we use their own buses to transport them to the FEMA camp.

You’re Pastor Mike Johnston?” “Yes. Who are you?” “Pastor Johnston, I am with the United States government, and we are here to arrest all of you who are subversives. If you come quietly with us, no harm will come to you or your congregation. I really don’t want to crack some heads to get my point across,” “Took you government types long enough to start rounding up the Christians, I was expecting this in the 2010’s. I assume that you’re taking us to the FEMA Camp that’s between here and Florence. Am I right?” Ellison looked at his fellow team members, then looked back at Johnston, and asked, “How do you know that?” “You think the camps were a secret? Foolish boy, that’s probably been the worst kept secret held by the government in my lifetime. While I don’t agree with what you’re doing, we will go with you. Ladies and gentlemen, follow these men to wherever they want you to go.

Dear Lord in Heaven, I need forgiveness. I am beginning to hate the man who took my husband’s life, and I don’t want to hate anyone or to be consumed by it. Please help me to focus on my children for now and help us to focus on you as we find ourselves persecuted by the forces of evil. I pray in Jesus’ name, amen.

massive complex. It was surrounded by an electrified fence with warnings every few yards, and there was no way for any of them to tell just how big the FEMA Camp was, because only a dome was seen. First, the bus stopped at a guard station. The guards directed the bus towards a place that had all the busses stopping just inside of the structure. They stopped at a dropping-off point, where other people could be seen being directed to go somewhere deeper into the structure. “All right, everyone off.

It would have been easy for Donald to be a hero. People who have hated and criticized him would have forgiven or overlooked his endless stream of appalling actions if he’d simply had somebody take the pandemic preparedness manual down from the shelf where it was put after the Obama administration gave it to him. If he’d alerted the appropriate agencies and state governments at the first evidence the virus was highly contagious, had extremely high mortality rates, and was not being contained. If he’d invoked the Defense Production Act of 1950 to begin production of PPE, ventilators, and other necessary equipment to prepare the country to deal with the worst-case scenario. If he’d allowed medical and scientific experts to give daily press conferences during which facts were presented clearly and honestly. If he’d ensured that there was a systematic, top-down approach and coordination among all of the necessary agencies. Most of those tasks would have required almost no effort on his part. All he would have had to do was make a couple of phone calls, give a speech or two, then delegate everything else. He might have been accused of being too cautious, but most of us would have been safe and many more of us would have survived. Instead, states are forced to buy vital supplies from private contractors; the federal government commandeers those supplies, and then FEMA distributes them back to private contractors, who then resell them. While thousands of Americans die alone, Donald touts stock market gains. As my father lay dying alone, Donald went to the movies. If he can in any way profit from your death, he’ll facilitate it, and then he’ll ignore the fact that you died.
