I may have more uses for my new GPS Palm device than I originally thought. At first, I figured it would be a fun toy and would give us the chance to finally take up geocaching as a family. Now I may have another use for it, getting around roadblocks. About a month ago, there was a news story that mentioned that the National Guard was hiring for “Internment Specialists”. This story contains quotes from spokesmen that make you wonder:
“You must resettle the prisoners to an area of safety where they can be interned in a safe environment,” he told WND today. “This is a specific role of a military police soldier, to be trained in the proper protection and interrogation and handling of enemy combatants on foreign soil.”
Such soldiers “do not … operate a military police role in the United States,” he said.
He said the National Guard has no authority over civilians in the U.S. unless a governor declares some sort of emergency and asks for help, such as when a hurricane hits.
So, they say that they won’t act against US citizens unless an emergency is declared or arises. But it goes on with a few more troublesome quotes:
Another National Guard spokesman, Mark Allen, said, “We ran the ad, but the soldiers that we recruit and train are primarily trained so they can be deployed overseas. We envision that eventually people get deployed and they’ll be responsible for internment and relocation of people overseas.” (emphasis mine)
This is just vague enough to allow for the possibility that these folks could be used on U.S. soil. Which brings me to this rather disturbing video on youtube. There are surely dozens like it, but it makes me wonder. I am not a kook conspiracy theorist, but it is telling that the path our government keeps taking makes you have to at least stop and ask, “could this happen?”
What do you think? Does this sound like the America you thought you knew?
