During the 1980s Iran Contra hearings, Lt. Col. Oliver North was questioned by Congressman Jack Brooks concerning North’s role in the development of a continuity-of-government plan called “Rex 84” (“Readiness Exercise 1984”), under which the U.S. Constitution would be suspended, and people moved into FEMA camps in the event of a major disaster. Upon being questioned, the look of absolute fury on North’s face was telling, as if some great secret had just been revealed. Immediately thereafter, the questioning of Congressman Brooks was shut down by the committee chair on the grounds that the subject touched upon a “highly sensitive and classified area.” The short exchange is documented in a video here.

FEMA and the National Security Police State

Executive Orders have been on the books for a half century now, empowering the Federal Emergency Management Agency to take control of everything from public and private communications, energy and transportation to housing and more. Most disturbing is that these presidential decrees encompass the registration and seizure of people, including the separation of family members, should the government find it necessary.

These orders have been revised and updated throughout the years by different presidents, regardless of party affiliation. Until recently, they have operated under the premise of some great national emergency that would justify the use of such draconian measures. That premise disappeared on March 16, 2012 when Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13603, titled “National Defense Resources Preparedness”.

In this Executive Order, Obama essentially gave himself the authority to declare Martial Law in times of war or peace. Section 310 authorized the heads of “each agency engaged in procurement for the national defense” to “take appropriate action to ensure that critical components, critical technology items, essential materials, and industrial resources are available from reliable sources when needed to meet defense requirements during peacetime, graduated mobilization, and national emergency.” Throughout the document, the phrase “in peacetime and in times of national emergency” is repeatedly used. The Order outlined specific duties, assigned to the heads of all of the major federal agencies, who would form a “Defense Production Act Committee.”

Speculation has circled for years as to when these plans might be utilized. With the advent of the government-orchestrated false-flag attacks of September 11, 2001, the feds have been increasingly hostile to the American people, our freedom, and privacy. Everyone has become a suspect in the government’s war OF terror.

Lessons From Louisiana

When Hurricane Katrina tore through New Orleans, there was flooding and storm damage. But the greatest destruction and devastation was not caused by the hurricane itself, but by the breached levees. But was it the hurricane that caused the levees to fail?

Eyewitnesses were interviewed who said they witnessed helicopters flying above the levees, which were accompanied by explosions on the levees. These eyewitnesses swear that the levees were blown.

In the aftermath of the Katrina fiasco, many people died due to a lack of clean drinking water, food, and shelter. Federal agencies were of no help. In fact, it seemed clear to those of us who were observing the story unfold at the time, that the federal “relief” agencies actually appeared to be hindering assistance operations. Volunteers and supplies were turned away, communications were cut, and agents went door to door confiscating the firearms of those who remained in their homes. Remember, for your own safety, be a good victim.

Just when it seemed as though nothing could get any worse, President George W. Bush added insult to injury by praising Michael Brown, the FEMA director, at a press conference by saying, “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job.” I lot of people thought the comment was laughable. It would have been, unless “Brownie” was doing exactly what he was supposed to be doing and the chaos, suffering, and deaths were all intentional.

Order Out of Chaos

As Hurricane Sandy made it’s track up the east coast, I remember thinking how odd it was that the forecasters had predicted that it would take a hard left-hand turn toward the northwest. Most storms of its kind tend to be pushed out into the Atlantic, toward the northeast by the jet stream. One meteorologist from the Weather Channel blamed a high-pressure wind system that he called a “blocking high” which changed the flow of the jet stream, a phenomenon he called “peculiar.” But, he noted, we’ve seen an increase in these “blocking highs” in recent years.

U.S. Patent No. 4,686,605 was one of three original patents awarded to Bernard Eastlund in 1987. Eastlund had worked with ARCO Power Technologies Incorporated (APTI), a subsidiary of Atlantic Richfield Company. APTI was the original contractor that built the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) station in Gakona, Alaska, in the early 1990s. This patent dealt with “Method and apparatus for altering a region in the earth's atmosphere, ionosphere, and/or magnetosphere” and, among other things, included the following application, specifically mentioned in the patent:

“This invention has a phenomenal variety of possible ramifications and potential future developments. As alluded to earlier, missile or aircraft destruction, deflection, or confusion could result, particularly when relativistic particles are employed. Also, large regions of the atmosphere could be lifted to an unexpectedly high altitude so that missiles encounter unexpected and unplanned drag forces with resultant destruction or deflection of same.”

If the technology can be used to interfere with missiles, could it also be used to block or steer jet streams? Could this technology be the source of the “high pressure blocking”, mentioned by the meteorologist? The patent goes on to say:

“Weather modification is possible by, for example, altering upper atmosphere wind patterns or altering solar absorption patterns by constructing one or more plumes of atmospheric particles which will act as a lens or focusing device.”

The question needs to be asked: Was Hurricane Sandy steered into the coast by a modification of the jet stream for the purpose of creating a crisis situation?

That question has further significance with the revelation that the state of New Jersey had issued a five year contract with Radiant RFID for “an RFID-based managed evacuation solution that tracks evacuees, pets, emergency transport vehicles and commodities deployed at state shelters in preparation for and in the event of a hurricane, natural disaster or other incident to assist in reunification of families.” After reading the press release from Radiant RFID, Aaron Dykes remarked, “Hurricane Sandy formed just four days later, October 22, making for notable timing as New England hasn’t been hard hit by a hurricane since 1938. Who could have seen the devastation to New York, New Jersey and other parts of the East Coast coming when that area hadn’t been hit by a major hurricane for some 70 years?”

One might say the officials had impeccable timing. A little too impeccable?

Problem, Reaction, Solution - The Hegelian Dialectic

A state of Martial Law has been declared in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. Local TV station WPVI reported on the storm damage, the struggles of survivors, and the frustration from homeowners that were not allowed in to see whether or not they still had a house. The station reported, “It's hard to conceive of how long that could take. Seaside Heights and nearby towns are under martial law.” They went on to include a quote from police chief Tom River. "We know people are there, we're keeping an eye on them, and they need to stay on their property. If they come off their property to come off the island, then they don't get back on.”

Other areas were said to be pondering a Martial Law declaration as well. In Pennsylvania, the Wilkes-Barre city council voted to “bestow emergency powers” upon Mayor Tom Leighton, according to the Times-Tribune. The mayor didn’t use the power, wisely recognizing the police already had enough power under civilian law to deal with crime, looters, and other unlawful acts. The paper then stressed the gravity of a Martial Law declaration.
“Martial law is not simply an emergency declaration. It is the suspension of civil rights and assumption of all authority by the police or military, which in a democracy [sic] are supposed to be under civilian control.

“The measure is so extreme that, on the national level, it has been imposed exactly once - by Abraham Lincoln. Despite the obvious calamity posed by the Civil War, Mr. Lincoln's imposition of martial law and suspension of habeas corpus remains controversial.

“An approaching storm, even portending natural disaster, should not prompt local elected officials to raise the prospect of such drastic measures. Police have adequate authority under existing civilian law. Council members should focus instead on effective emergency responses.”

The reporter was right, except for one thing. The united States of America is not a democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic. This means that “We The People” are the government, and we have unalienable rights which come from God, and therefore government has no authority to take them away.

But “take them away” is exactly what they are doing. We now have CBS News reporting that evacuees have been taken to FEMA camps, and the state of New York is actually pondering the transfer of storm victims to a prison! The New York Post reported on November 9th,

“The state is eyeing the recently shuttered Arthur Kill Correctional Facility on Staten Island as a temporary home for people displaced by the ravages of Sandy and this week’s nasty nor’easter, officials said yesterday.

“Closed last December, the medium-security prison could feed and sleep as many as 900 people with nowhere else to go.”

If the prison is opened and the people are transferred there, presumably there will be security officers there to keep the peace. Will the prison’s new residents be allowed to leave?

Residents, housed inside the FEMA camps, describe the deplorable environment there. They shiver in the bitter cold, without heat, while Black Hawk helicopters buzz overhead.

Furthermore, they are being isolated from the outside world. “No media is allowed inside the fenced complex,” reports the Asbury Park Press. “All the while, a black car with tinted windows crests the hill and cruises by, as if to check on the proceedings,” the paper reported. Communications were also being cut. Evacuees were not allowed to take pictures, Wi-Fi was shut down, and officials would not allow evacuees to charge their cell phones. They claimed there was not enough power.

One resident summed it up thusly, “Everybody is angry over here. It’s like being in prison.”

We’ve been warning for years that Martial Law was coming to America. With each orchestrated, Hegelian event, the likelihood has drawn ever closer. From the ever-nearing financial cliff, to manufactured pandemics and lab-produced influenzas, to created food shortages, and geoengineered weather events -- each scenario provides the potential excuse to pull the plug on our freedom. And along the way, we see evidence that the government is engaging in trial runs.

Regardless of whether or not the reader believes Hurricane Sandy was a manipulated storm system, local officials’ reaction to it are beginning to form a very unsettling picture. The precedents are being set on a local level for the unfolding of a totalitarian police state. It is this writer’s belief that these incidents are test cases to gauge the public reaction, study behaviors, and ultimately desensitize the nation to the idea that Martial Law and the suspension of our rights is an acceptable and necessary solution to every crisis scenario.

We are witnessing the unfolding of a new norm. Whether real or promulgated by government, when crisis strikes, a declaration of Martial Law will be made, and the only right you will have is to do exactly as you’re told.
