Well if you think this is all B.S., then look at this. I have seen all the white trains with "special" accommodations.

Crazy stuff.

If you look past the cheesy dialogue and theatrics, I thought the Jesse Ventura video on fema camps was pretty scary. The stackable plastic coffins are quite ominous.

Almost as scary as a crate of surplus ammo.
Some quick numbers fudged off the top of my head...

America has 300 million people.
If people live 100 years, that means 3 million dead every year.
divided by 300 days, that's 10,000 people dying every day.
Planting that many means quite a bit of...stuff seeping through the ground into the water supply.
Grave liners don't sound like such a bad idea, and I remember a scary number of 70,000 stockpiled, or, a weeks supply.
Not so scary once you get over the Jonesian hysteria.

Columbia, South Carolina has decided to rescind its controversial decision to criminalize homelessness after facing major backlash from police, city workers and advocates.

Columbia’s city council decided on Tuesday to reverse its unanimous vote that would have given homeless people the choice to either go to a remote shelter or get arrested, according to the Free Times. The council apologized, backtracked on its decision and said it would give homeless people the option to go to the shelter, but would not force them to.

“I will take responsibility for that getting into the public discourse,” Councilman Cameron Runyan said on Tuesday about his suggestion to force homeless people into confinement, according to the Free Times. “That is not the desire…We are not going to forcibly confine anyone.”

Runyan’s softer stance is a far cry from his stern Aug. 13 declaration.

Last month, after bemoaning the fact that Columbia’s Downtown area had become a “magnet for homeless people,” the council decided that it would make loitering and panhandling in the area illegal and it would make homeless people go to a 240-person bed shelter or go to prison. The measure would have required additional police to round up homeless people and to stand guard at the facility to make sure that no one left without permission.

But even the members of the law enforcement who would have been needed to carry out the plan would not get on board.

“Homelessness is not a crime,” Interim Police Chief Ruben Santiago told The State.“We can’t just take people to somewhere they don’t want to go. I can’t do that. I won’t do that.”

After paying heed to the concerns of those who opposed the plan, the city council has revamped the approach to putting an end to homelessness.

The city will dispense vans that will take people on the streets to the shelter, if they choose to go, and they will be able to stay there for a week before getting transferred to a more stable program that addresses their specific needs.

The city will also install public bathrooms and garbage cans and will educate people about the city’s loitering and panhandling policies by putting up explicit signs, according to the Free Times.

But the city council hasn’t smoothed out all of the program's kinks.

Runyan suggested using the homeless people’s food stamps, Social Security checks and other benefits to help pay to run the shelter, but some aren’t sure if that is legal. The shelter, which is poised to open at the end of the month, also doesn’t have kitchen facilities, so it’s still unclear how it will provide food to homeless people.

Still, advocates felt bolstered by the council’s willingness to compromise.

“The city of Columbia, Christ Central Ministries and service providers recognize that meeting the challenge of homelessness and poverty requires a community response and that this is a ‘we’ challenge, not a ‘them’ challenge," Mayor Steve Benjamin said, according to the State, "and never an effort to deprive any individuals of civil liberties or to criminalize poverty."

Oh, wait...


Homeless people are under attack again, this time in Columbia, South Carolina. Last week, in a move to keep homeless advocates from feeding the homeless in public parks, the city started levying a fee for use of publicly owned spaces. Food Not Bombs has been feeding the homeless in Columbia’s parks for over a decade. Now they may see their mercy mission forced to end.

Judith Turnipseed, a Columbia organizer with Food Not Bombs said they are a non-profit. “We’re just a group of people who come to the park…” to share food with the homeless and anyone else that is hungry says Turnipseed. FNB services roughly 25 people each time it comes to a public space in their efforts to feed the hungry. The new regulation would require the group to request a permit 15 days before each meal and would cost $120.00.

The city says the regulation was not meant to be aimed at specific classes of people, but rather provide improved public space use for everyone in Columbia. Acknowledging that there are groups that use the facilities without advance notice, the city’s director of parks, Jeff Caton, claimed the ordinance was meant to make sure the trash cans are emptied and bathrooms are clean before any group uses it.

FNB intends to keep feeding the homeless and are considering legal action against the city. FNB has tried speaking with Caton, and other city officials, but without luck. Columbia has taken controversial steps against the homeless in the past.

In August 2013, an ordinance was passed that criminalized homelessness. Homeless people were given the choice of either relocating to a shelter outside of town or go to jail. Following a public outcry, the city back pedaled and revoked the ordinance. The plan, put into motion by Cameron Runyan, was passed unanimously by Columbia City Council.

Under the ordinance, law enforcement were assigned to patrol the downtown and keep homeless people out. They were told by the police chief to strictly enforce the city’s quality of life laws which includes bans on loitering and public urination. A hotline was established so that residents could report the presence of a homeless person to law enforcement.

Homeless violators were to be taken to a shelter outside of the city limits. With 240 beds, the shelter could only accommodate one-sixth of the city’s homeless population. Once a person arrived at the shelter, they were not allowed to leave the grounds. A police officer was stationed on the road leading to the shelter to make sure that homeless people didn’t start wandering towards town again.

The choice for the 1,500 homeless people in Columbia would be either get arrested or confined to a shelter that they couldn’t leave, making the shelter a pseudo-jail. One source said the shelter was like the county poor farms that were prominent in the Midwest in the 1930s and 1940s.

Columbia isn’t alone in its anti-homeless attitude. During the first week of February, amidst some of the most brutal weather New York City has seen in years, officials started ticketing people who were trying to escape the bad weather by going to the subway system. Miami, Tampa and Palo Alto have also passed ordinances this year making it illegal to be homeless inside city limits.

Meanwhile, in Columbia, FNB continues to serve those who are homeless and anyone else that is hungry.

You know, I Really do want to believe all this stuff is just BS but quite frankly when you know without a doubt things like bureaucrats essentially making laws that for all intents and purposes are to destroy all commerce, property rights and morals, judges essentially ignoring laws, obviously different sets of laws for us suckers, politicians, police, it makes you wonder.

Add in things like the massive ammo purchases in the US, police becoming politically active, receiving things like RG-13's (not shitty old lavs, the ones our military SHOULD have), basically snot nosed punks in serious need of a major attitude adjustment sporting body armor and carte blanche in the eye of the, "law", well, it's disconcerting to say the least.

Now add in things like the mad rush to disarm everyone despite all logic, history and facts screaming that's the road to tyranny and genocide, our publicly funded teachers not caring if children can read, write, or add as long as they can name 17 genders, things like wynn being elected despite the glaring facts a rock at the bottom of the ocean couldn't possibly not know, (same goes for redford's progressive party), idiots using debit cards and not bothering to get their receipts, the wealth of the knowledge of mankind at their fingertips and they're on facebook instead, believing wholeheartedly that computors are infallible, well, you get the picture.

Yes, I just poured my 3rd rye and this is my rant of the day, but it truly is disconcerting and I wouldn't doubt unelected wannabe dictators are building fema camps for a second. There are simply far too many indicators to possibly believe there is no agenda, wether or not the ignorant fools fostering the agenda are even aware of it. In fact I'd strongly suspect they'll be shocked at the end result of their plans.

Gosh, the Fema Force is strong here. If AC was here, he would clarify everything. Although I am getting a feeling he is close by.

Some clarification:

FEMA Region 3 http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/67/FEMA_logo.svg
Claim: A flurry of activity in FEMA Region 3 indicates that "something big is coming."

http://www.snopes.com/images/content-divider.gif

http://www.snopes.com/images/red.gif
FALSE


http://www.snopes.com/images/content-divider.gif
Examples: [Collected via e-mail, September 2013]

Well this is pretty creepy. According to a notice sent by Senator Sheldon R. Songstad, Ret. of South Dakota State and published, with a video, which will be shown below, titled "Emergency Fema Region 3 Alert!!!," the government obviously believes something big is coming.

Region three includes, DC, DE, MD, PA, VA, WV.

The preparations listed include; Nine-week training course for UN Peacekeepers in CONUS to learn Urban Warfare, English, and US weapons systems beginning 4th week of July for 386,000 troops to be completed by October 1st;

$11 million in antibiotics to be delivered to FEMA region III by October 1st ordered by CDC;

FEMA purchase orders for over $14.2 million for MREs and heater meals to be delivered to Region III by October 1st;

FEMA purchase orders for 22 million pouches of emergency water to be delivered to region III by October 1st;

FEMA purchase orders for $13.6 million for MREs and heater meals to be delivered to Austin by October 1st;

2800 MRAPs must be delivered to DHS by October 1st;




Origins: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) figures in wild schemes cooked up by conspiracy theorists, who have long claimed that the federal agency has constructed and maintains concentration camps (http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/FEMA_concentration_camps) in the U.S. for the inevitable detention of dissenting American citizens. The August 2013 warning referenced above, which asserts FEMA is planning for a "major event" in Region Three (which encompasses the District of Columbia, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia) around 1 October 2013 is more of the same tinfoil hat nuttery — what's described in the video linked above is either erroneous or is ordinary activity misleadingly made out to sound alarming.

First of all, given FEMA's mission as an emergency management agency, it's hardly surprising that FEMA would be keeping a stock of storable food and water supplies. That FEMA might have ordered certain items with the specification that they be delivered before 1 October 2013 is unsurprising, as the federal government's fiscal year (http://www.senate.gov/reference/glossary_term/fiscal_year.htm) ends on 30 September 2013. Likewise, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)







maintains a Strategic National Stockpile (SNS (http://www.cdc.gov/phpr/stockpile/stockpile.htm)) comprising "large quantities of medicine and medical supplies to protect the American public if there is a public health emergency severe enough to cause local supplies to run out," so it's hardly surprising that the CDC might be stocking up on antibiotics prior to the end of the fiscal year. (Government agencies that don't spend all the money that has been allocated for them within the current fiscal year often risk having their budgets cut for the following year.)

The World Health Organization (WHO) did call for its second-ever emergency meeting (http://www.businessinsider.com/who-emergency-meeting-about-mers-2013-7) in July 2013 to discuss the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS (http://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/mers/)) Coronavirus in conjunction with the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee (IHREC) system which was implemented after the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) outbreak in 2002. However, the IHREC decided that MERS did not at this time constitute a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHIEC), defined as "an extraordinary event which is determined to constitute a public health risk to other States through the international spread of disease and to potentially require a coordinated international response." Moreover, any shipment of antibiotics to a FEMA region wouldn't have anything to do with MERS, as no vaccine for MERS yet exists, and antibiotics are of little or no use in treating viral infections such as MERS.

Finally, the notion that 386,000 "foreign" U.N. peacekeeping troops have been training in the U.S. outside the public eye is beyond belief. That number is greater than the entire population of the city of New Orleans, more than double the highest number of troops the U.S. had on the ground during the height of the Iraq War, and about nine times higher than the number of soldiers stationed at Fort Hood, the largest military installation in the U.S. In fact, it's more than three times larger than the number of U.N. peacekeeping troops (http://www.un.org/en/peacekeeping/about/) in the entire world.

That many troops in training would leave an awfully large footprint somewhere (even if they were dispersed across several different training locations), yet no one seems to be able to produce any evidence of this 386,000-strong contingent of "foreign troops" in the U.S., or even identify where they might be.

Would a Canadian or US government round up citizens and put them in camps ? Given the right circumstance probably. You don't have to look back any further than the Second World War. Do they have all these FEMA camps that infowars and others say, I doubt it. That being said ,never say never about rounding up people.
