At the Ames Iowa straw poll a member of Minnesota Change asked Dr. Ron Paul his thoughts on HR 645 the National Emergency Centers Establishment Act.
The answer provided is shocking to say the least, especially coming from an active member of Congress and one who has time and again proven himself to be a trustworthy and knowledgeable resource:
I know that’s their goal. They’re setting up the stage for violence in this country.
No doubt about it.
-Ron Paul, August 2011
While the bill itself has not become law, it attempted to address certain aspects of emergency mobilizations, including the establishment of emergency detention centers.
It has already been established with 100% certainty that “emergency centers” are in existence throughout the United States and they number in the hundreds. Some of the larger centers, often referred to as detention camps and/or refugee relocation facilities, can house upwards of 50,000 people.
HR 645 may not have become law, but it doesn’t have to. The President of the United States, via executive order, can declare a national emergency (and will when the time is right and necessary), implement martial law, and execute emergency procedures as outlined in HR 645 and a host of other procedures without any say so from Congress or the American people.
There is absolutely no reason that hundreds of acres of land, millions of dollars, and thousands of man hours would have been spent for no reason. Someone, somewhere plans on populating these facilities at some point in the near future.
Given recent events around the globe and the fact that the US government and military are actively war-gaming large scale economic breakdown and civil unrest we, like Dr. Paul, have no doubt that the stage is being set.
