H.R.645: Department of Homeland Security to establish FEMA camps

When I recently looked for more info on the Wackenhut empty prison buses cruising Tucson and the desert, I saw many people ridiculing the claims that FEMA camps exist.

The timing is bizarre, but just a day before Ellen Brown posted her article, related legislation was introduced in the House:

H.R.645
Title: To direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish national emergency centers on military installations.
Sponsor: Rep Hastings, Alcee L. [FL-23] (introduced 1/22/2009)      Cosponsors (None)
Latest Major Action: 1/22/2009 Referred to House committee. Status: Referred to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and in addition to the Committee on Armed Services, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned.

This is really weird because I'm sure that they already built FEMA camps.  And I don't just believe everything I see on the web or hear on Alex Jones, but occasionally I talk to people in person.

The full text and updates for the legislation are at http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/D?d111:6:./temp/~bd7Utc

Is this supposed to legitimize the camps?

And while I sure won't be going to a FEMA camp voluntarily, you do what you think is best for you.

Hi Christine, The Thomas link

Hi Christine,

The Thomas link doesn't seem to work. Like you, I like to

verify Alex Jones' claims.

Thanks for letting me know,

Thanks for letting me know, Warren.  I had trouble with the link last night and thought this one worked.  Apparently, you can't direct link to the gov database.  So, to find it again, I went to http://thomas.loc.gov/ and clicked on "bill number" and searched for "H.R. 645" - that got me straight to the bill.

Of course it's not law yet, but Alex is probably right about its purpose being to LEGITIMIZE the existing camps just as they did with the monitoring of all telecommunications.  

But I don't know why he's having such a fit over it.  He made movies about FEMA camps many years ago.  And I haven't heard him say yet what people are supposed to do about it, am listening to his podcast right now.

I can't think of anything to do about it, can't even think of a country to go to (long term) that's more to my liking. It's a global event.

And if anyone has a DIRECT link to the bill at a GOV site, I'll appreciate it. 

I'm aware of sites that have copied the text, but I want to be able to see the progress of the bill  and I don't want to have to worry about edits.

Rep Hastings, Alcee L. (FL) introduced the bill and currently there are NO cosponsors. 

It'll be interesting to see what happens.  The purpose might just be to evaluate public (non) response and to help determine how to proceed.  Obama can just issue an executive order if it becomes an issue.

Norm, thanks for the link to

Norm, thanks for the link to the text of 645.

I read your post on California prisons and it strikes me as odd, like from another reality.

... I work in a California prison. Perhaps you should see how egregiously Californians are paying for the healthcare of these criminals where simply poor people, victims' families, and even veterans lack comparable healthcare. ...

I know a guy who spent a year in a California prison and trust me, he did NOT want to go back.  In fact, if it's so wonderful, why worry about the FEMA camps?  Let's just enjoy our complementary stay.

At a time when people go to jail because they were framed or committed serious crimes such as failing to return a library book, texting in class, smoking pot, failing to pay a parking ticket, slapping their kid, selling raw milk, and, as in my case, are threatened with arrest because they dare to publish the TRUTH (scroll down to paragraph 24), I'll do whatever I can to ensure healthcare for prisoners.

The big money is going to the PRIVATE CORPORATIONS running the prisons, such as Wackenhut and of course the legislators who make the bizarre laws.
