In 2007, local news outlet KSLA did a story about clergy response teams being activated by FEMA in the event of any major disaster or period of civil unrest. It was said to be a “debunked story” until a brave pastor released the documents confirming it.
Also in 2007, Bruce Wilson at talk2action.org noted:
Was it a hoax ?
….The White House website notes the emergence of a private, non-governmental effort clergy disaster relief effort, “Christ In Action”, headed by Assemblies Of God minister Denny Nissley. According to a WH website page concerning lessons learned from the Katrina disaster:
“Dr. Denny Nissley, the Director of Christ in Action is organizing a Coalition of Faith-Based First Responders from around the Nation to be prepared for the next major disaster. This Coalition will perform disaster relief training for volunteers and will maintain a current roster of thousands of volunteers who can be quickly called upon to provide support during the next major disaster.”…
…Christ In Action’s working relationship with top level government officials has at times seemed surprisingly close, even to the point of a “joint operation”, publicly announced by Brigadier General working at the Pentagon, during the relief efforts that following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
…Denny Nissley’s organization was on site providing meals shortly after the Set. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the Pentagon; a November 18, 2001 Assemblies Of God publication reports that Nissley’s effort to feed Pentagon officials quickly morphed into a “joint operation”, announced by Brigadier General Bob Smolan, who “designated the [Christ In Action kitchen] tent as the hub for the feeding operation” at the disaster site. A volunteer account on the “Christ In Action” website states that the group ran a water distribution station for FEMA during the Katrina relief effort. That site also website described disaster relief efforts at “Ground Zero” in New York City as a “ministry opportunity” and possible public perceptions that the group might carry some level of government endorsement raises the specter of [apparently] government-sanctioned religious predation.
In 2003, a document describing Washington D.C.’s “Clergy Response Team” circular was distributed, explaining their purpose and function since 2000 to “serve the residents…that have been, or are at risk of being, in the criminal justice system.”.
Section 1385 of the Posse Comitatus Act states, “Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.”
Under the John Warner Defense Authorization Act, signed by President Bush on October 17, 2006, the law was changed to state, “The President may employ the armed forces to restore public order in any State of the United States the President determines hinders the execution of laws or deprives people of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law or opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws.”
However, these changes were repealed in their entirety by HR 4986: National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008, reverting back to the original state of the Insurrection Act of 1807. Despite this repeal, President Bush attached a signing statement saying that he did not feel bound by the repeal.
In December 2008, the Pentagon announced that 20,000 more troops were going to be deployed on U.S. soil to “bolster domestic security”:
The American Civil Liberties Union and the libertarian Cato Institute are troubled by what they consider an expansion of executive authority.
Domestic emergency deployment may be “just the first example of a series of expansions in presidential and military authority,” or even an increase in domestic surveillance, said Anna Christensen of the ACLU’s National Security Project. And Cato Vice President Gene Healy warned of “a creeping militarization” of homeland security.
“There’s a notion that whenever there’s an important problem, that the thing to do is to call in the boys in green,” Healy said, “and that’s at odds with our long-standing tradition of being wary of the use of standing armies to keep the peace.”
Only 6 months into Obama’s presidency, the Pentagon and Department of Homeland Security hosted a teleconference for law enforcement agencies and associations such as the National Association of Chiefs of Police to discuss the Obama Administration’s interest in using the military during “emergencies.” Local police officer Edna Aquino noted:
“My initial reaction is: why are we allowing federal troops to basically invade the sovereignty of individual states when each state has its own law enforcement agencies and each state possesses an armed and trained National Guard and, in the case of some states such as New York, a trained militia?”
“We have not used armed federal troops in New York since the Civil War when Union troops and Navy battleships attacked dissenters who opposed conscription by the Union Army,”
In October 2012, the army released a bizarre document about “religious support” (and the document applies to National Guard forces as well as forces overseas).
And just last December, a blogger wrote about hearing a pastor at a public board meeting at a City Hall bragging about being “with the FBI” when pastors were discussing these clergy response teams.
…A document from a church in Ohio educated it’s congregation that Barack Obama’s presidency is appointed by God and that Obama himself is “God’s minister.” This document, if authentic, literally teaches that Barack Obama’s presidency is appointed by God, according to Romans 13. Read the insane document here.
In this video, a Pastor Anderson describes his views on the FEMA Clergy Response Teams, and says he personally knows of religious leaders taking orders from high officials in government. In the comments sections, Pastor Anderson elaborates, “Jack Schaap and Jack Trieber were called to meet with George W Bush and were told what to preach. Also, David Gibbs was called into a meeting with about 10 other preachers and told by George W Bush personally to tone down their preaching against homosexuals. Anyone who went to First Baptist Church of Hammond in early 2005 can verify that Jack Schaap was called in. Plus, there were about 40 other people present to hear what David Gibbs said.”
Greg Dixon, of FreedomsPhoenix.com, claims to have a letter from a pastor of the Grace Shepard Church (location witheld), where the pastor describes FEMA gathering local ministers to help in the event of martial law:
Subject: FEMA/Plum Island
About three months ago, I was invited to become a part of a group implementing federal FEMA/Homeland Security directives in our county. I couldn’t pass it up!
Lots of interesting and bothersome info being discussed at these meetings…
Local FEMA’s (‘across the US’ according to a spokesman at our local meeting) are gathering Ministers (Pastors) to help in the event of a “declaration of Martial Law or like police action following a declared emergency or quarantine due to an act of bioterrorism”. The discussion centered around the need of ‘locals’ to “quell the cowboy mentality” of farmers who may have their stock or crops consequently confiscated and destroyed…According to our spokesman, Ministers will be especially helpful because “you guys and gals can use Romans 13”
Along with major disasters, large-scale terror attacks, or simple economic collapse comes the need for housing for victims, which is where HR 645 comes in:
The National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645 mandates the establishment of “national emergency centers” to be located on military installations for the purpose of to providing “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster,” according to the bill.
The legislation also states that the camps will be used to “provide centralized locations to improve the coordination of preparedness, response, and recovery efforts of government, private, and not-for-profit entities and faith-based organizations”.
Ominously, the bill also states that the camps can be used to “meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security,” an open ended mandate which many fear could mean the forced detention of American citizens in the event of widespread rioting after a national emergency or total economic collapse.
Adding to the “FEMA camp conspiracy theory” is the documentation proving that the U.S. Army has a “Civilian Inmate Labor Program” and that KBR has a contract with the Department of Homeland Security (through their “intelligence gathering arm”, ICE), written up about the same time as HR645:
The maximum total value of the contract is $385 million and consists of a 1-year base period with four 1-year options. KBR held the previous ICE contract from 2000 through 2005. The contract, which is effective immediately, provides for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to expand existing ICE Detention and Removal Operations Program facilities in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs, KBR said. The contract may also provide migrant detention support to other government organizations in the event of an immigration emergency, as well as the development of a plan to react to a national emergency, such as a natural disaster, the company said.
However, the preoccupation/obsession with civil disturbances and unrest on the part of local, state, federal, AND military agencies are nothing new: After the LA riots in 1992, the FBI wrote an entire book dedicated to civil unrest, and FEMA released a document outlining steps that should be taken by local law enforcement, fire, and medical emergency personnel. Comically enough, it specifically reiterates the law stating that the military cannot operate on U.S. soil, while at the same time, suggesting a loophole to fix this problem:
Federal law prohibits the U.S. Armed Forces from performing law enforcement functions within the U.S. When the State National Guard and the U.S. Armed Forces do operate in the same area, it is possible to federalize the National Guard, placing both forces under one command…this is necessary to ensure effective management and coordination, however, there may be drawbacks to this action, as was evident in Los Angeles. Federalizing the National Guard abolishes its power to enforce state laws, as happened in Los Angeles, where the local police lost the services of the guard in enforcement actions such as security and looting patrol.
What they are essentially saying here is that they can use the military on U.S. soil, but it means that they can’t take care of the people that the “disturbance” is even affecting ; In other words, they’ve gotten rid of the locals who usually respond to these situations, but can’t respond to these situations themselves, either, which would make the purpose of the forces being deployed a very limited one: to ensure the continuity of government. That’s it. Rape, looting, and violence in the streets? You’re on your own. If the people left behind decide to unite and develop a militia-type force, however, they would be there on the spot, “quelling” the dissent.
On May 1, 1992, President George Bush issued a proclamation calling for all persons engaged in acts of violence and disorder in Los Angeles to cease and desist therefrom and to disperse and retire peaceably. President Bush signed the Executive Order providing for the restoration of law and order to the City and County of Los Angeles. The Order expressly addressed the applicable jurisdictional questions and provided all federal agencies with authority to act in a law enforcement capacity during the civil unrest. It authorized the Secretary of Defense and the Attorney General to delegate to subordinate officials of their respective departments the authority conferred to them by the Order….
By issuing the proclamation ordering insurgents to disperse, the President met the requirements under federal statute to exercise presidential power to use federal troops to quell domestic violence.
Calling up the National Guard and other federal agencies has an important psychological effect on how quickly order is restored in a civil unrest situation. However, without proper planning and coordination in riot control tactics, and without an update in administrative and tactical procedures, federal agencies will be underutilized in civil unrest emergencies.
That is hilarious: They’re “afraid” that federal agencies will be underutilized, while the U.S. population is afraid (and rightfully so) that federal agencies will be overutilized!
Even before then, the Army Field Manual 29-25 (1985) was specifically written up to train Army personnel to essentially side-step the Constitution and the Bill of Rights by operating on American soil without actually “operating on American soil”. Going back even further in time, pre-World War II even, the rather newly-developed Federal Government had its’ concerns. This is mainly because tyrannical governments (whether they are dictatorships, oligarchies, or monarchies) want desperately to stay in power, and any threat to their domination scares the hell out of them.
Many people are unaware of McArthur’s military seige in 1932 on 22,000 U.S. citizens peacefully occupying Washington, D.C. and demanding nothing more than what their government had promised them. President Hoover ordered the action directly, and from that point onward, the people of the United States knew to be fearful of their government, and it was generally accepted that no such protests were to be allowed (at least not for any length of time necessary to actually force their will upon the government).
In 1972, when a group of students at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio were protesting Nixon’s Cambodian Campaign, national guardsmen fired 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis. This was just another reminder that the federal government will always stick its’ hand out to spank you if you rebel or try to form a movement to counteract it, even if it means using their gubernatorial sock puppets to do so.
The U.S./UN military takeover has been stealthily increasing since 9/11, and gotten particularly brazen in the past couple of years. In September 2008, the U.S. Army posted a press release on their website, announcing that the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team was going to be “helping ‘people at home’ under NORTHCOM”:
They’ll learn new skills, use some of the ones they acquired in the war zone and more than likely will not be shot at while doing any of it.
They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack. . . .
The 1st BCT’s soldiers also will learn how to use “the first ever nonlethal package that the Army has fielded,” 1st BCT commander Col. Roger Cloutier said, referring to crowd and traffic control equipment and nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them.
A few weeks later, the Colorado Independent reported:
“In the next three years the military plans to activate and train an estimated 4,700 service members for specialized domestic operations, according to Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, commander of U.S. Northern Command, which was created in 2002 for homeland defense missions,”
“It’s to help us manage the consequences of a large-scale event,” said Renuart. “We have one [unit] now trained and equipped and assigned to the Northern Command. We’ll grow a second one this calendar year of 2009 and a third one in the calendar year 2010 so we can provide the nation three sets of capabilities that could respond to an event of the size of 9/11 or larger.”
The mainstream media doesn’t help, either, when it participates in the mass cognitive dissonance and forgets to mention these events while at the same time, hyping up stories demonizing the 10th amendment and states’ rights. This is done deliberately to condition the population into accepting a nationwide, militarized police force and dismantling their local and state governments out of unjustified fear and ignorance of the true agenda.
An integral part of “America’s Heartland” is its’ deep-rooted connections to religious faith. Many would say that we were founded as a “Christian nation” built on “Christian” principles, but no matter what, the fact of the matter is that America and religion go hand in hand, whether that religion is Christianity or not. The federal government knows history better than the people it governs, it seems. During the Revolutionary War, most of the “rebels” were actually pastors, and they saw rebellion against the British Crown as service to God Almighty.
In the event of a major civil disturbance, natural disaster, or mass killing, the pastors and comfort of church leaders are what millions of Americans will be naturally turning to, so the government has preemptively enlisted their “assistance” in dealing with these matters. According to a paper released by the National Institutes of Mental Health in the Spring of 2000:
“The pastoral community represents a large and often untapped resource in times of crisis. It possesses a unique aggregation of characteristics that makes it uniquely valuable amidst the turmoil of a psychological crisis…. the pastoral community may possess especially powerful restorative attributes…. This paper represents an initial effort to elucidate how the principles of pastoral care may be functionally integrated with those of crisis intervention.”
The documents released in 2007 are astounding: Along with pointing out that during crisis situations, “Evangelism and Bible reading are not particularly helpful”, they also encourage “seeking health professionals for people experiencing anxiety” (a nice way of saying, “You can’t give them Valium, so give them to someone who can”) and also encourage something called “ventilative confession”, which they also coin as “debriefing”. Again and again, they stress the importance of the mental health profession and that they are part of that system, and that that’s a good thing.
To anyone with any awareness of both the mental health profession and the theological one, things can get a little dangerous when you mix the two. Andrea Yates is living proof of that. Trauma alone is bad enough: throw pills on top of it and you’ve got an Eric Harris. Or a James Holmes. At least 31 school shootings and/or school-related acts of violence have been committed by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs, resulting in 162 wounded and 72 killed. 90% of school shootings have been linked to psychiatric medications. When pastors are encouraging the drugging of our society into compliance and docility (and in worst case scenarios, homicide and suicide), we have a major problem.
Now, we come to the notorious Zimmerman “trial”. In reality, George Zimmerman is guilty of murder because he stalked Trayvon Martin with no legal authority to do so. This provides a very logical reason for the public to be upset by a “not-guilty” verdict. Add the fact that the prosecution withheld the photo of Zimmerman’s face after the incident, which could lend him a “not-guilty” verdict. Add 3 pastors that have reserved seats to watch the whole thing unfold, and… TA-DA! You’ve got riots in the streets.
…in an unusual arrangement, four seats in the second row, just steps from the jury box, have been assigned to a group called “Sanford Pastors Connecting.”
The multi-racial ministerial association has pledged to bear witness to the high-profile proceedings during the trial and to keep the peace afterward.
All of the clergy in the courtroom project have agreed to support the jury’s verdict in the racially-charged case, which sparked large rallies and marches led by civil rights figures like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
As needed, the pastors will report courtroom events to crowds expected to gather outside the courthouse, as well as to their congregations, and have agreed to head off inflammatory rumors.
These pastors exemplify the strong racial and religious backdrops of the entire trial, and there are many people in South Florida who follow one religious faith or another. George Zimmerman is guilty as hell, and the guilt is WAY more provable than other high-profile cases like the OJ Simpson or Casey Anthony cases, and the people know it. A mistrial resulting in an aquittal would be a treason of justice, could be considered an utter slap in the face to the black community, and a stain on South Florida altogether ; It would be no wonder that a dumbed-down population with little resources to legally fight back and put this guy in prison once and for all would feel like rioting.
According to BizPackReview.com:
Triplett said the city was a “tinderbox” with all the demonstrations after Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin in February 2012, and his fear is that it may happen again if Zimmerman is ultimately acquitted.
A “Rodney King-type of riot” is a “scenario that’s certainly a possibility,” Sanford City Manager Norton Bonaparte told Mattingly.
However, neither Bonaparte nor Smith would discuss with CNN what specific security measures, like SWAT or other “personnel,” were in place.
“Months of preparation, intense community relations and a secret law enforcement plan” are in place not just for a Zimmerman acquittal, but in case celebrations over a possible guilty verdict turn violent, Mattingly reported.
This whole trial is a problem-reaction-solution scenario that is working splendidly: The public is distracted and mesmerized by the Hollywoodish scene of the trial itself, which consisted of a witness who very well may be the lowest-IQ’d individual to ever take the stand in Florida’s history.
The mainstream media and Obama himself have pulled the race card on this case at every turn, and most people who know just a few facts about the case are unaware that at the core of the issue, nothing the defense said really mattered anyway because legally, he was guilty. This has led many people to defend Zimmerman based on the “Stand Your Ground” law, and to later look very silly doing it because once again, he’s guilty because he didn’t have the legal authority to detain Trayvon Martin.
So all in all, no one is going to be truly happy at the end of the day, because all this trial has done was taint the “Stand Your Ground” law and gun rights in general, and further divide the country in regards to tolerance and mutual respect for one another. But you can bet that the FBI and DHS are going to send infiltrators into the scene when the “not guilty” verdict is given, to purposely provoke violence and rioting. According to Newsmax:
“We don’t have information about a specific event that might take place at the conclusion of the trial, but we encourage everyone to keep any protests peaceful,” Sheriff Scott Israel said in a prepared statement unveiling the video and his anti-violence outreach.
And according to the Sun-Sentinel:
As the Zimmerman trial progressed, Detective Munib Ahmed said the number of online comments grew from 10,000 to about a million tweets per day.
“What we’re concerned about is all the people starting rumors or instigating fights [through social media]” he said. “So we’re trying to get ahead of the game [and] quell the fight before it starts.”
Based on what these documents have portrayed, the scenario they’re building is going to be a nightmare for those living in South Florida. The police are already making random visits to residents in the area, specifically “requesting” that they not riot. Riots usually go on for a few days, then once the DHS agents have shot, wounded, or dispersed the rioters, the looting begins. Despite popular belief, looting is actually very uncommon during natural disasters, but very common during civil unrest or following riots. Once the looting begins, the DHS response teams will be sent in to disarm the citizens completely and that’s where the FEMA pastors come in.
If there are military vehicles around, trust them when they say in their own documents that they’re not there to help you. They’re there for COG purposes only and it is the Department of Homeland Security (the same agency that has bought 1.6 billion rounds of hollow point ammo), FEMA and their prostitute pastors who will be given the task of “taking care of you”, and their “help” involves medication and brainwashing in return for your food, or board, or even just simple comfort after your house is looted and your wife is raped because your guns have been “temporarily confiscated” during the “time of crisis” these pastors were trained for.
