DHS’s If You See Something, Say Something spying program now at the Indy 500. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is quickly taking over all our major sporting events. What’s next? Shopping malls? Hospitals? Grocery stores?
Local first responders attend DHS training:
Alabama – Members of the South Central Mountains Regional Task Force’s Health and Medical Committee completed training offered by the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) in Anniston, Ala.
The CDP is operated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency and is the only federally-chartered Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) training facility in the nation.
One hundred and forty-three professionals from hospitals, emergency medical services (EMS) and public health entities attended the training April 15-19. Participants attended one of three classes: “Healthcare Leadership for Mass Casualty Incidents,” “Hospital Emergency Response Training” and “Emergency Medical Operations.”
DHS and private companies an unholy alliance:
At last month’s Border Security Expo at the Phoenix Convention Center in Arizona, Wyatt Nease held a remote which controlled a small car called the Pointman Tactical Robot (PTR). “Swat teams absolutely love it,” Nease, an unmanned systems specialist with Applied Research Associates, told the Guardian. “You can throw it through windows and doors, it goes up stairs, it’s self-righting. We can mount 12-gauge shotguns on it, so we can weaponize it as well.”
Two themes emerged from a day at the Expo: equipment and technology used by the US military is increasingly becoming available to domestic entities. And software is now easy to use and more powerful. Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software potentially gives officials huge surveillance powers whether in a desert or a metropolis.
The Expo, which featured some 185 companies, gave both start-ups and established companies the chance to show off their inventions in an effort to pitch projects to federal agencies.
According to Nease, the PTR, which costs between $23,000 and $35,000, was originally only available to the military, but is currently being used by the FBI and LAPD for recon missions where it could be dangerous for humans to enter.
“You can send this robot up to a door, blast it and go right on through,” Nease told theGuardian.
“You can add teargas canisters to it. If someone tries to come up to it you can detonate the teargas canister and haul ass out of there.” Other optional extras include strobe lights and shrieking noises to disorient suspects.
Other inventions shown off at the expo included the a license plate recognition system which would help police, but also ordinary businesses who want to catch people parking in unauthorized spaces; a video camera system that can be worn by law enforcement which can gather video and sound which could later be used in court; and ammunition rounds that flatten on impact in order to “obtain the proper amount of pain to enable target compliance.”
Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software which gives law enforcement significant surveillance powers in urban or rural areas. PSIM makes it possible for several agencies to share information and make incident responses faster and more effective.
“Threats are always evolving. We’ve moved from a world where threats used to be single gunmen to a world where threats and risks are much more complicated.” John Gill, a former White House Chief Security Officer who now works for VidSys, a PSIM provider told the Guardian.
Two GOP members of the House Homeland Security Committee, took issue with the president’s renewal of his call to close the detention center at the U.S. Naval Base on Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Obama promised to close the facility as a candidate for president, but has been blocked by a congressional ban on relocating the foreign terror suspects held there anywhere in the United States.
“Name me one American city that would like to host these guys,” Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said on CNN’s State of the Union. Rep. Peter King of New York, appearing on ABC’s This Week, said he is “very concerned about sending detainees back to Yemen.” More than half of the 166 prisoners still on Guantanamo are from Yemen, and 56 have been cleared for return to their country. Others are deemed too dangerous to be released, but have not been prosecuted because, claims the Obama administration, their trial would compromise security secrets.
DHS is teaching kids to go to FEMA camps in times of crisis:
FEMA , the Red Cross, and the department of homeland security are now using taxpayer money to educate children in public schools about ‘getting ready for disaster’. But why would government agencies hold interest in this? Is it because they want schools to be safer, or because they want citizens to flee to FEMA camps in a time of crisis?
“Educators can get help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which introduced guidelines to help schools develop procedures to respond to all types of disasters, including school violence.”
“There are certain types of procedures for any emergency,” Peggy Stahl, chief of FEMA’s Outreach Branch and Preparedness, Training, and Exercises Directorate, told Education World. Those procedures are outlined in “School Emergency Planning Concept,” which Stahl presented last week at a Department of Education conference in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Stahl told those attending the conference that there is a new awareness in schools and communities regarding the importance of emergency preparedness. “And it is not only natural disasters that are providing the wake-up call but also the far too numerous tragic incidents of school violence,” she said. “The message has been clear that school crisis response support programs are needed, [programs that] include a ‘FEMA-type’ response with more federal assistance for the school and community when there is an incident of violence.”
FEMA Offers School Emergency Planning
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) presented guidelines for schools to develop their own school emergency plans.
The multipart guidelines, “School Emergency Planning Concepts,” include six primary steps in creating an emergency plan.
1. Institute a planning process– Recruit support from the community, identify planning issues, recommend strategies for addressing those issues and assign a committee to develop a plan.
2. Identify hazards — In addition to obtaining or drawing a map of the school and school grounds, identify potential hazards along building evacuation routes.
3. Train and drill — Develop procedures for classroom and school drills, determine ways of evacuating the building, and practice the drills to determine their effectiveness.
4. Plan for immediate response and care — Anticipate first-hour priorities, assign roles and responsibilities, coordinate the plan with the school district and local emergency officials, and educate parents on the school response plan and their role in an emergency.
5. Develop a communications plan — Develop call lists, determine on-site and off-site communication needs, and develop reporting procedures to convey emergency information to parents and the media; submit copies of the plan to school district and local emergency response offices.
6. Develop a post-disaster shelter plan — Develop a list of post-emergency care and shelter planning assumptions.
FEMA’s school emergency plan is a multistep program that focuses on several aspects of emergency response, including planning, practicing evacuation drills, and setting up ways to handle both on-site and off-site communications.
A disaster that very well could be orchestrated by a government agency, one might add. So what are these ‘disaster relief’ camps like? A quick google search for ‘FEMA camps’ would turn up thousands of results. Yet contrary to what one may think, leaving these camps may not be voluntary.
In fact, a leaked document signed by Joyce E. Morrow (administrative assistant to the secretary of the army) suggests that disaster relief camps may actually be military internment camps. The document is titled ‘internment and resettlement operations’ , and it describes these camps in great detail, stating that ‘civil support is the department of defense support to civil authorities for domestic emergencies.
Civil support includes operations that address the consequences of natural or man-made disasters, accidents, terrorist attacks, and incidents in the U.S.’ .
To sum it up, this leaked document confirms plans by the department of defense to operate internment prison camps for citizens during a crisis . But why would they need a crisis to imprison large amounts of people, and why would they imprison large amounts of people in the first place? But the real question is, do these prison camps tie in with FEMA?
And if so, is FEMA preparing children in public schools to accept going to an internment camp if there is a disaster? Perhaps the military internment camps to be used for disasters, and the FEMA camps to be used in times of crisis, are unrelated. But given the recent NDAA , allowing for the legal indefinite detainment of American citizens, and the political weather, it seems this isn’t such a far out possibility. It isn’t a nice issue to think about, but spreading the word about the possibility of an American holocaust would be arguably the most effective way to stop such an event.
Don’t think DHS is creeping into ever facet of American’s lives? Here’s a picture of an electronic traffic sign in Brookline, MA:
