Presidential hopeful Ron Paul rendered a blistering commentary about the distinct possibility of Martial Law in the United States and stated that “Attorney General Eric Holder should be “immediately fired,” and that President Barack Obama is pushing for the legalization of “martial law” in the U.S.” In the matter of Martial Law preparations within the United States, Ron Paul stands on firm, substantiated ground. Some consider Ron Paul to be a “Conspiracy Theorist,” and while we don’t agree with all of Ron Paul’s views – we stand firmly committed to publicize and expose the Martial Law Internment Camps that are currently built and and presenting government documents that prove, beyond any reasonable doubt that Martial Law preparations by DHS, who is under the direct authority and control of the Presidency are indeed proceeding with plans to inter large amounts of an unspecified segment of our population. After presenting Dr. Paul’s statements on the subject, we’ll look into who exactly may be “interred” in the interests of National Security (Sic):
Ron Paul: Obama pushing ‘martial law,’ Holder should be ‘fired’
By Stephen C. Webster
Wednesday, December 14, 2011
Speaking to conspiracy talk show host Alex Jones on Tuesday, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) said he believes that Attorney General Eric Holder should be “immediately fired,” and that President Barack Obama is pushing for the legalization of “martial law” in the U.S.
In his comments about Holder, Paul, who’s in a close second place among Iowa Republican primary voters, suggested that his role in the “fast and furious” gun-running scandal should be enough to leverage him from office.
“He should be immediately fired and then there should be an investigation to find out if charges should be made,” he said. “That’s obviously over the top. All these kind of sting operations and false-flag, this is criminal. They do it constantly. I think they were doing that when there was this so-called attempt to kill the Saudi, or, the Iranian ambassador. That kind of stuff. They should be investigated.”
The Republican frontrunner also took issue with the inclusion of an “indefinite detention” provision in a defense budget authorization bill that recently made its way through Congress. The provision cements into law the power claimed by the Bush administration and reaffirmed by the Obama administration, letting authorities detain American citizens under military custody, without formal charges against them or access to legal representation.
As a candidate, then-Senator Obama said repeatedly that should not happen in the U.S., but as president he pushed Congress to approve that very power, and created by executive order a system of once-yearly reviews for detainees in military custody. He’s threatened to veto the bill, which is currently being renegotiated, but only because it imposes too many checks on the administration’s power to detain prisoners. MUCH MORE
First, let’s examine the prospects of Marital Law being declared in the United States. Based on new material I’ve received, all of it substantiated, we believe that Martial Law is no longer a possibility – but an eventuality that will soon show its ugly face to segments of the population that we are not privy to and will be discussed below. We are aware that people are becoming concerned because of the constant hits on our series on S-1959 and Halliburton building FEMA Concentration Camps throughout the Continental United States. This article is still the most read story on this site and has been reproduced in its entirety on far too many sites to list and it is read every single day here in the U.S. and throughout the global community. Americans do not trust their government, and we find it interesting that the volume of “hits” on this article is now rising and often is the most popular Op-Ed month after month – which indicates to us that the public who read the Alternative News are becoming ever more fearful of their own government – and now we know their fears are justified. We have been concentrating on other political matters and thank Alex Jones for continuing the Infowars investigation into this matter as well as supplying substantiation and government documents that our corrupt, Mainstream News Media refuses to publish. First, reading this article should bring you up to speed on the current situation:
Now that you’ve seen the substantiation and government directives, this latest article, published a few days ago, adds to the substantiation and places the entire situation into perspective:
KBR seeks sub-contractors to outfit “emergency environment” centers
Paul Joseph Watson
Wednesday, December 7, 2011
The revelation that Halliburton subsidiary KBR is seeking sub-contractors to staff and outfit “emergency environment” camps located in five regions of the United States follows preparations over the last three years to deal with riots inside the United States that have already spread throughout Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
As Infowars reported last night, a document sent to us by a state government employee confirms that Kellogg Brown & Root Services are looking to activate camps built for FEMA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers across the United States.
This follows the Senate’s passage of Section 1031 of the National Defense Authorization Act which allows American citizens to be snatched off the street and held in detention camps without trial.
In 2006, KBR was contracted by Homeland Security to build detention centers designed to deal with “an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S,” or the rapid development of unspecified “new programs” that would require large numbers of people to be interned.
Since 2006, the world has been beset by riots and civil unrest as a result of the fallout from the economic collapse. From the United Kingdom, to continental Europe, to the Middle East and North Africa, almost every corner of the globe has experienced social dislocation.
Now U.S. authorities are preparing for such eventualities on home soil, with major police departments like the NYPD staging “mobilization exercises” to train police to prepare for civil disorder in the United States.
Warnings and preparation for civil unrest coming to the United States have been voiced on a regular basis.
Back in 2008, U.S. troops returning from Iraq were earmarked for “homeland patrols” with one of their roles including helping with “civil unrest and crowd control”.
In December 2008, the Washington Post reported on plans to station 20,000 more U.S. troops inside America for purposes of “domestic security” from September 2011 onwards, an expansion of Northcom’s militarization of the country in preparation for potential civil unrest following a total economic collapse or a mass terror attack.
A report produced that same year by the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute warned that the United States may experience massive civil unrest in the wake of a series of crises which it termed “strategic shock.”
“Widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security,” stated the report, authored by [Ret.] Lt. Col. Nathan Freir, adding that the military may be needed to quell “purposeful domestic resistance”.
The United States has continuity of government plans in place should martial law be declared by the President. However, the details of those plans have been so tightly guarded that even Congressman and Homeland Security Committee member Peter DeFazio (D – OR), who has the necessary security clearance, was denied access to view the material when he requested to do so back in July 2007.
Under the terms of the the National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645, first introduced in January 2009 and still awaiting passage, emergency camps are to be made available 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.
With many Americans now becoming “pre-revolutionary” as a result of their fury at the Obama administration and equally unpopular lawmakers in Washington, potential civil unrest could spring not just from a poverty-stricken underclass, but also the shrinking middle class.
Indeed, top elitist Zbigniew Brzezinski warned earlier this year that middle class unrest caused by economic disenfranchisement would soon hit America.
Perhaps that’s why the Department of Homeland Security is increasingly focusing its anti-terror apparatus on white middle class Americans, portraying them as domestic terrorists in a series of PSA videos. In addition, ‘Occupy’ protesters are also now being characterized as terrorists. MORE
Alex Jones comments and editorializes on a number of issues, and while we are not in complete agreement on some of his content, there are other areas of his investigations that hit home and are extremely well documented. During our initial reporting upon this matter, we also published San Francisco Chronicle Acknowledges ENDGAME By Homeland Security, and even as far back as 2007-8, the plans and designs of Homeland Security and EndGame were substantiated, albeit never publicized by the MSM or discussed by any of our politicians in a meaningful manner other than that by Ron Paul – and he was dismissed as a “conspiracy theorist” and kook for attempting to alert the American people to the dangers and pitfalls that were being posed by our government against the people whom they are supposed to represent:
Presidential candidate responds to question about detention camps for civil unrest
Paul Joseph Watson
Saturday, August 20, 2011
In a response to a question asked by Infowars correspondent Robert Wanek at Iowa State University during the recent Ames straw poll, Ron Paul said that the federal government was preparing for civil unrest and martial law in the United States.
Paul was asked for his opinion on whether H.R. 645 (The National Emergency Centers Establishment Act) could lead to Americans being incarcerated in detention camps during a time of martial law.
“Yeah, that’s their goal, they’re setting up the stage for violence in this country, no doubt about it,” responded Paul.
The National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645, first introduced in January 2009, mandates the establishment of “national emergency centers” to be located on military installations for the purpose of providing “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster,” according to the bill. MUCH MORE
NOTE: To the best of my knowledge and belief, Ron Paul is the only Congressman that has NEVER voted “Aye” on any legislation or measure that was not in compliance with our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and in this age of tyranny and faux politicians, that is certainly a breath of fresh air. Newt Gingrich, who is now leading the GOP Presidential Race recently stated: the government should occasionally allow a terror attack in order to remind the American people there is still a war on terror and officially designated terrorists. I’ll go along with that as long as the “Terror Attack” is confined to his own residence for having the gall to suggest that innocent Americans who would die in such an attack would somehow serve the greater good. What a Maggot…
We also need to understand that the militarization of our Local Police Departments is escalating, and unfortunately, it appears that the DHS is gearing-up for actions the public is wholly unaware of:
The Pentagon Is Offering Free Military Hardware To Every Police Department In The US
The U.S. military has some of the most advanced killing equipment in the world that allows it to invade almost wherever it likes at will.
We produce so much military equipment that inventories of military robots, M-16 assault rifles, helicopters, armored vehicles, and grenade launchers eventually start to pile up and it turns out a lot of these weapons are going straight to American police forces to be used against US citizens.
1033 was passed by Congress in 1997 to help law-enforcement fight terrorism and drugs, but despite a 40-year low in violent crime, police are snapping up hardware like never before. While this year’s staggering take topped the charts, next year’s orders are up 400 percent over the same period. Read More LINK
From the above substantiation and documentation, it is obvious that Martial Law preparations are in full-swing in the United States which elicits the $64,000 question: Who are these Internment Camps being prepared for? This is a matter of speculation and paranoia that appears to be gripping the “informed” of our nation, as indicated to us by the surge in search queries in regard Martial Law and our work on S-1959 and the publicizing of our government’s authoritarian governance that is being accomplished with as little publicity as possible and a Press Blackout by the Mainstream News Media on any hint of Internment Camps being built and staffed in a nation that once was a model to the global community for democratic principles and human rights.
We do not claim to know who might find themselves jailed without the benefit of Habeas Corpus or the slaughtering of the Posse Comitatus Act should Martial Law be declared, however, let’s examine the so-called justification and logic that Congress relied upon for creating fear and uncertainty throughout the informed American public with actions that are far too reminiscent of Germany’s Third Reich:
- In 2006, KBR was contracted by Homeland Security to build detention centers designed to deal with “an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S,” or the rapid development of unspecified “new programs” (My emphasis) that would require large numbers of people to be interned.
- In December 2008, the Washington Post reported on plans to station 20,000 more U.S. troops inside America for purposes of “domestic security” from September 2011 onwards, an expansion of Northcom’s militarization of the country in preparation for potential civil unrest following a total economic collapse or a mass terror attack.
- A report produced that same year by the U.S. Army War College’s Strategic Institute warned that the United States may experience massive civil unrest in the wake of a series of crises which it termed “strategic shock.”
- With many Americans now becoming “pre-revolutionary” as a result of their fury at the Obama administration and equally unpopular lawmakers in Washington, potential civil unrest could spring not just from a poverty-stricken underclass, but also the shrinking middle class.
None of the above “justifications” for creating Internment Camps in our nation hold-up to minimal scrutiny and in fact, we believe they are nothing more than smoke-screens for the real reason these camps have been constructed. Here’s a brief point-by-point examination of each of the above points and authorities that Congress has used to justify their need to illegally imprison American citizens under a declaration of Martial Law:
- “an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S” is an absurdity and should insult the intelligence of any individual that is in possession of the facts rather than the propaganda being spewed by the MSM. During the Bush Administration’s criminal regime when Congress first authorized KBR to begin building these Internment Camps, we have to remember that it was the Bush Administration itself whom turned a blind-eye to our immigration laws and in deference to corporate owned mega-farms and other businesses that require low wages and/or a strong-stomach to staff, illegal immigrants were embraced as a source of cheap labor with the underlying belief that the United States had too many job positions that our own citizens would refuse to staff. (As it applies to seasonal farm labor, it is now becoming obvious that we do need a viable Migrant Farm Workers policy, however, poultry processing and other “undesirable” jobs have since been filled by Americans after extensive ICE arrests and deportations, and the influx of illegal immigrants entering our nation has dropped significantly.)
- For items 2, 3 and 4, the underlying theme appears to be the Economic Collapse of the United States, brought to us by the Bush Administration by and through his illegal war in Iraq and the total bumbling of the war in Afghanistan, notwithstanding the Bush Tax Cuts that wrecked havoc on the government’s ability to pay its bills. Now that the Department of Homeland Security, working with cities throughout the nation have successfully advised Mayor’s and law enforcement officials on how to disband Occupy Wall Street protestors from their various cities, it becomes obvious that even though our government supports free speech and protests in nations they have targeted for regime change – those same rights are not available as they should be for Americans.
- Items 2,3 and 4 also speak of a “mass terror attack,’ or “a series of crises which it termed “strategic shock,” and finally, “Americans now becoming “pre-revolutionary.” In attempting to understand and clarify the government’s fear and loathing of our civil rights and the current OWS Protestors, and the designation by the DoD that OWS Protests qualify as “Low-level Terrorism,” sorting through the rhetoric becomes extremely hard to analyze and elicits ambiguous results; we have weathered the threat of a “mass terror attack” since 9-11 without experiencing anything other than the FBI and DHS recruiting mentally unstable individuals and then supplying them with weapons and materials they need to conduct said attacks – and ultimately arrest them with full MSM fanfare that our nation’s security apparatus has “thwarted another terror attack” against the United States (Sic). The belief that Americans are becoming “Pre-Revolutionary” was not based on intelligence reports or acts – but on a Rasmussen poll and email by pollster Pat Caddell that indicated a record number of Americans were disgusted with their government and believe that our Presidency and Congress are hopelessly corrupt. (Being dissatisfied and failing to trust Congress or the Presidency hardly qualifies Americans as “Pre-Revolutionary.”) We have no way to evaluate or define what “a series of crises which it termed “strategic shock” actually allude to, however in our opinion, is a catch-all to declare Martial Law at the whim of the Presidency by and through the urging of Corporations who fear their assets are in danger and/or the fear of Congress that the bulk of their long-serving Senators and Representatives are threatened with losing their lucrative positions in Congress by the current dissatisfaction of the American public. We believe that the 1% will do anything it takes to maintain their positions of power, wealth, and dominance over the political and legislative processes of The United States – even if it results in another Great Depression or a declaration of Martial Law.
Who Are The Internment Camps Being Built For – And What Could Trigger Issuing A Decree Of Martial Law?
We believe that there are three (3) major developments that could spur our government to declare Martial Law and are listed below in order of their likelihood of being the catalyst for a Martial Law declaration:
1. War with Iran/Syria/Pakistan
2. The Economic Collapse of The United States
3. A Major Natural Disaster. (This category could be number one and is dependent on forces we cannot control)
War – Whether or not a War with Iran/Syria or Pakistan is in our future remains to be determined, however, there are recent developments in the Middle-East that suggest military planners here and elsewhere are preparing for this possibility. There are reports that “Hundreds of US-NATO Soldiers (have) Arrive(d) & Begin Operations on the Jordan-Syria Border;” The sabotage of Iranian Nuclear and Industrial sites has escalated dramatically:
“JERUSALEM — An explosion at a steel production complex in the central Iranian city of Yazd on Monday has intensified rumors that Iran is at war.
The undeclared, semi-covert campaign against Iran appears to have started several years ago, analysts say, and in recent weeks has included the massive blast on Nov. 28 that demolished significant parts of the city of Isfahan, the location of a uranium conversion site.
Two weeks earlier, at least 17 soldiers were killed in an explosion at a military base storing missiles in a suburb of Tehran. General Hassan Tehrani Moqaddam, a key figure in Iran’s missile program, was also killed in the blast. MUCH MORE
There are also reports that Britain is moving closer to an all-out War with Iran, and Israel is again clamoring for action in their desperate attempt to incite others to destroy their decades old enemy with threats that if Iran is not “contained,” they will attack Iran unilaterally, while others believe that the War with Iran has already started, albeit on a covert basis (for now).
As we have stated before, in order to predict our future, we have to understand our past. That said, it’s a historical fact that when the United States declared War on Japan after the attack on Pearl Harbor, approximately 110,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese who lived along the Pacific coast of the United States were forced to camps called “War Relocation Camps.” Make no mistake, Iran is not another Iraq or Afghanistan from a military standpoint; ever since George W. Bush included Iran in his “Axis of Evil” statement in his State of the Union Address on January 29, 2002, followed-up by the subsequent attack on Iraq, Iran has been preparing for the eventuality of War with Israel and the United States. Not unlike several militarized nations, Iran has a “Special Forces” unit called the Quds Force:
The Quds Force (or Qods Force) (Persian: ????? ???, translit. Niru-ye Qods, “Jerusalem Force”) is a special unit of Iran‘s Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (Revolutionary Guard). It has been described as “tasked with exporting” Iran’s Islamic revolution, or “responsible for extraterritorial operations” of the Revolutionary Guard.
The force is described as “active in dozens of countries.” According to former U.S. Army intelligence officer David Dionisi, Quds force is organized into eight different directorates based on geographic location:
If we play the Devil’s Advocate on this issue, it would not be beyond the realm of possibility that active Quds Force operatives have infiltrated the United States in preparation for retaliation of an attack on their homeland, and what manner of weapons of mass destruction they possess is purely speculative, but has surely been taken into consideration by America’s War Planners. We know that the former USSR was in possession of “Suitcase Nukes,” as is the United States and Israel. We also know that several of the Soviet Union’s Suitcase Nukes supposedly “went missing,” and for years, the DoD feared that Al Qaeda was attempting to purchase these weapons, however, that fear never materialized. (We believe that if Al Qaeda had purchased said weapons that they would have already been deployed and activated.) We also believe that because of the astronomical black-market cost of these weapons, they would have to be acquired by a well-funded nation rather than a terrorist organization with limited funding. Although Iran is a member of the Biological Weapons Convention, U.S. intelligence reports claim that Iran currently maintains an offensive biological weapons program. The Iranian program is believed to include active research and development, agent production and weaponization.
Taken as a whole, if U.S. War Planners believe that Iran does have Quds Force Operatives stationed in the United States, a War with Iran could easily result in the internment of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Iranians who currently reside in our country. Add Syria to the list and the numbers become higher, although to the best of our knowledge, Syrian migration into the U.S. has not been nearly as high as that of Iranians. Even though we eventually had to pay reparations for the Internment of the Japanese, this in no way can be construed to mean that we wouldn’t do the same thing to Iranians if Washington believes they are a threat to National Security. (Another catch-all phrase…)
Economic Collapse of the United States – On this subject matter, we will acquiesce to Gerald Celente, who has delved in-depth into this possibility and provides us with a glimpse into what might happen if a U.S. economic collapse becomes a reality:
Gerald Celente: “Economic Martial Law Will Be Declared”
August 1st, 2011
In his latest quarterly Trends Journal (Summer 2011), Gerald Celente provides us another “history of the future,” in which he discusses global economic, monetary, and political events as they happen and what their consequences will be for months, years and decades to come. As he has said before, it is only a matter of time before a major terror attack is executed in a major Western nation. And once it happens it will send shock waves throughout the world, leading to mass global panic and a further tightening of the noose around the necks of the populace:
“What will another major terror strike mean? Should an attack hit one of the major NATO nations, the effects, this time, will go global. Bank holidays will be called, the US and other fragile economies will crumble, gold and silver will soar, and already-troubled currencies will crash. Economic martial law will be declared. Introduced as a temporary measure, once in place it will remain in place (like the curfews and draconian security precautions installed by despots and dictators everywhere). Civil rights will be suspended and, particularly in America, Homeland Security, already intolerably intrusive, will achieve an Orwellian omnipresence.
With banks closed and economic martial law in place, restrictions will be set on the amounts, times and frequency of withdrawals. As we have cautioned before, it will be essential to have a stash of cash on hand. Even though governments will devalue their currencies, it will happen in stages. Speaking only for ourselves, we at The Trends Research Institute will not be storing precious metals in bank safe deposit boxes.”
Since “terrorism” is now a term we can use to describe just about any action deemed a threat to the public and government infrastructure, the possibilities for what the next “terror attack” will look like are endless. It can come in the form of suicide bombers at your local shopping mall, a cyber attack on financial markets launched via the internet, or any number of other potential threats that have been recently highlighted by our Department of Homeland Security.

A Major Natural Disaster – In January of 2008, we published an article titled: Volcanic Activity Appears To Be Working It’s Way Around The “Ring of Fire” UPDATED. And then, in August of 2009, followed-up with: Update On Earthquakes And Volcanic Activity Marching Northward; both of those articles provided details and substantiation that earthquake and volcanic activity are increasing in strength and frequency, and unfortunately, as you can see by the USGS graphic below, these quakes and associated seismic/volcanic activity are “marching northward” as we predicted. Seismic activity in North America has reached a level that is unprecedented, and while we believe that a major event(s) is likely to hit the West Coast of the United States relatively soon – such a geological catastrophe could strike almost anywhere in our nation:
Follow this with an excerpt on our last Earthquake Activity Update and it becomes obvious that something is going-on from a seismic standpoint in North America, and these quakes are rapidly increasing, not decreasing:
For those of you who have been monitoring earthquake activity within the United States, it is obvious that said seismic activity is increasing, and in the Cascadia Subduction Zone, the recent 4.0 and above quakes that have occurred during the past three months have been unprecedented for as long as I’ve been monitoring this particular Mega-thrust zone, which is now well over seven years. It’s interesting that most of the 4.0 and above quakes have been at opposite ends of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, and while this certainly doesn’t mean that a major event is imminent – it does demonstrate that it’s becoming active again, and that should elevate the awareness level and hopefully, for those that live within this major fault zone to plan for the worst while hoping that the area will once again fall into dormancy. All people in Canada and the United States affected by this quake zone should have solid evacuation plans in place at all times as well as the resources to support their families for as much as thirty (30) days or more. A quake of the magnitude generated by the Cascadia Subduction Zone would be so catastrophic that FEMA would be overwhelmed within a day or two and would cause enough damage to kill hundreds of thousands, if not millions (Depending on the time that the quake struck), and logistics would be a nightmare in reestablishing transit routes for emergency food, water, and medical supplies that affects such a wide area and concentrated population base.
The entire San Andreas Fault Zone has also been more active than usual with small earthquakes occurring directly on the fault lines; interpreting these 2.5 to 3+ quakes that are striking directly on the fault lines is extremely difficult. On one hand, they could be helping to relieve the strain on the fault thereby delaying a major event, while in the same breath, they also could be the precursor to a major event that some scientists have speculated could cause the San Andres Fault to experience a major event that allows the fault to rupture along its entire length. A quake of that severity would not only pummel California with a disastrous 8 or 9+ quake that could travel at supersonic speeds and generate a third type of catastrophic “Supershear” wave that differs from the normal P-Waves and S-Waves generated by earthquakes that are not on strike-slip faults and represent our most common form of earthquakes. A quake of this type is far more dangerous than one of the same magnitude that only generates P & S-Waves and is appropriately called a “Supershear Earthquake.” LINK
A SuperShear quake that encompassed the entire San Andreas Fault would be catastrophic in terms of loss of life, property, and the millions of people that would be displaced and homeless because of the enormous damage that would run the entire length of the fault-line. A major rupture of the Cascadia Subduction Zone would also cause extreme loss of life and damage, as would another major event in the New Madrid Fault Zone – any of which could happen today, tomorrow, or decades from now. Our West Coast has been living on borrowed time, as the San Andreas Fault (Southern section) and the Cascadia Subduction Zone are both overdue for a major event. If any of the events I’ve listed, and others I haven’t accounted for should occur in our nation, FEMA learned some hard lessons when disaster struck the Gulf Coast and New Orleans via Hurricane Katrina.
Where do you lodge people who are homeless when disaster strikes any geographical area of the United States? The population of New Orleans is barely significant when you compare it to Southern California, or in a worst case scenario, a SuperShear Earthquake that encompassed the entire San Andreas Fault-line. If such an event were to happen, it would impact shipping into the United States, food costs would soar, and the sheer number of people in need would tax the entire global community and the United States itself. Based on the number of homeless and critically injured people, we believe that FEMA would transport the victims to “Relocation Camps” throughout the nation rather than busing them to Football Arenas and other areas that do not have the facilities nor ability to house the enormous amount of people that would suddenly become homeless and find themselves without jobs or any of their assets. In a no-win situation, victims could easily find themselves as prisoners until the powers that be in Washington figure out how to deal with a natural disaster of a magnitude that has never before been witnessed in these United States…
