FEMA's primary role is to be tyranny's final enforcer; disaster relief is secondary 

Times of crisis are rife with heroes and villains. Making the distinction is a matter of life and death.

While FEMA and its chief Michael Brown have emerged as obvious villains, now taking heat for failing to respond, and for the (deliberate as well as unplanned) obstruction and mismanagement of relief and rescue efforts (which continue, even as more people die), there is something far more ominous underway, involving FEMA itself.

Few understand what FEMA really is. Its primary role is not benevolent disaster relief.

As Mike Ruppert wrote in Crossing the Rubicon: “Most Americans think of FEMA as a nice, benevolent agency that comes to help out when there is an earthquake, fire, or flood. It is much, much more than that. FEMA is an enormously powerful agency tasked with, among other things, ensuring the Continuity of Government (COG) in the event of a crisis or “neutralization” of key government leaders or institutions . . . Collectively, the Continuity of Government operations under FEMA command have come to be known as the ‘shadow government.' In a declared major emergency, arising from events even more devastating than 9/11, FEMA's authority divides the US into ten regions under FEMA control, which then operate semi-autonomously with the full cooperation of the military.” [my emphasis-LC]

These three new articles on FEMA, written in the wake of Katrina, are essential reading.

"Retrospective on the role of FEMA"

"FEMA privatized hurricane recovery disaster planning in New Orleans and Louisiana"

"Greeks Bearing Gifts: Paul Krugman at the New York Times and Clinton FEMA Director James Lee Witt leading America into the next slaughter"

When all hell breaks loose, as it now has in the South, and in the depths of human suffering, beware the cold hand of tyranny.
