An Update On Obama’s Personal Army…

 

 

 

 

 

” Because the American military swears an allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, and not to the President, could Obama’s strategy be to strip our Armed Services and shift their dollars into an all powerful civilian Army under his command?  Two tips coming into CiR this week surprisingly connect just these dots and link these machinations to Obamacare funding.

An article from the Marine Corps Times this week states: “The Marine Corps faces a difficult period of transition that will include shedding thousands of personnel per year, sharpening its role as a crisis-response force. . .”  This means our U.S. Marine Corps is being cut by 8,000 personnel fewer “than previously planned, and 12,800 fewer than the 186,800 end strength” recommended by senior Marine analysts!  This severe reduction in the Marine Corps force is the “minimum acceptable force” according to the warning given Congress by Commandant Gen. Jim Amos.  “Eleven combat arms battalions and 14 aviation squadrons will be cut,” he added.  This very important article, sent to CiR, details a severe force reduction in “Manpower and Force Structure,” plus procurements and even Aviation.  As many as 25,000 airmen and 550 planes “would go if sequester continues.”  But how come sequester isn’t affecting Obama’s Army?

A long time FEMA source cites this sentence in the Obama Army speech:  “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set.”  This tipster told CiR that when Obama took office, older, long time FEMA employees and/or individual assistance personnel were in the process of being replaced by “18 to 24 year olds who knew next to nothing” about homeland security or emergency response.  These young people and FEMA operations were pulled into Washington, D.C. under the executive branch’s prerogative.”

Stop Demonizing Preppers

 

 

 

” My friend Ceredwyn Alexander lives on a homestead in the mountains of Vermont. She and her family raise a lot of their own food, from chickens to cabbage, and they heat their home with wood they chop themselves. (She won’t live anywhere, she tells me, “without supplemental heat that operates without electricity.”) They worry about peak oil. They try not to buy things on credit. They always keep a great deal of food and water and other supplies on hand. If everything goes to hell tomorrow, they want to be prepared.

People who say and do such things are often called preppers, and Ceredwyn willingly applies the term to herself: It’s a decent label, she says, for people who try to be prepared for sudden, disruptive emergencies. If you’ve been absorbing the recent portraits of preppers in the press, where they’ve been depicted as doomsday-fearing right-wing paranoiacs stocking up on guns and canned goods, you may think you know all there is to know about Ceredwyn. But before you use your stock of stereotypes to fill in those blanks, here are a few more facts about her. “

The Post-Sandy Christmas

 

 

 

” “I have a wreath on my hotel room window,” said Stout. “It stinks. You just can’t go home. I feel like I’m on a road trip in my own neighborhood. It’s not like I have a tree up with lights.”

“It’s very different from what we’re used to,” said Vinny Accetta, a Midland Beach, Staten Island resident. He, his wife, and twin 2 ½ year olds are living with in-laws. “We usually do Christmas Day at our house,” he said. But that is not possible as his home has been flooded out.

“We’re not doing what we usually do. We don’t have our own tree or decorations, we feel out of sorts,” Accetta said. “If it weren’t for the kids, we would not be celebrating.”

The upheaval is compounded by FEMA’s ineffective response. Those insured by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), administered by FEMA, cannot rebuild their lives until they hear from the government how much they will be receiving. “

 

FEMA to the rescue … what would we do without our government saviors ?

 

” Gerritsen Beach Sandy Relief is continuing to care for its own in the Brooklyn borough after some 10,000 of its residents’ homes were flooded by sewer and sea water. Their call for people to loan its residents motor homes continues after being denied trailers by FEMA.

The wish list posted on Amazon a week before Christmas for the residents lists not video games or toys but bleach, paper towels, gloves, hot chocolate, 2x4s, and canned food like Spam and Chef Boyardee. ”

 

 

 

 

LIST OF ALL FEMA CONCENTRATION CAMPS IN AMERICA REVEALED

 

November 28, 2012 – There over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty.

These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general’s signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached.

Seaside Heights Gives Victims 15 Day Notice on Demolitions; Threatens Fines

 

 

 ” Dated November 13th, one noticed by a resident who wishes to remain anonymous, stated “Your structure has possible structural of footing failures.”

It went on to say the structure would be demolished by November 30, 2012, just 17 days from the notice.   The order allowed the residents to request a hearing, but also threatened by fines of up to $2,000 per week if they did not comply with the order and fix their homes before the 30th. “

Mary Katharine Ham on Hurricane Sandy and FEMA’s Lame Performance

”  It took days for FEMA to hit the ground in hard-hit parts of NYC. More than a week after the storm, FEMA representatives were just getting on the ground and opening
temporary offices in New Jersey. When a nor’easter blew in, several of their offices shut down because of— wait for it— severe weather.

An army of FEMA volunteers is now housed in the USTS Kennedy near Staten Island, a 540-foot training ship .

They are well-meaning, no doubt, and yet the State Island FEMA office was one of those closed for inclement weather last
week, in one of the hardest hit parts of the city.

 

Citizen groups stepped in:

” Victims of an unforgiving one-two punch from superstorm Sandy and a nor’easter that both hit New York’s Staten Island say FEMA has forgotten them…

Punch-drunk residents’ ire is also aimed at the city — which is going door-to-door to order people out of their homes — at the American Red Cross, which some say has not done enough and at police and firefighters.One group of residents, calling themselves the “Brown Cross,” is patrolling the devastated streets,armed with walkie-talkies, and helping residents clear debris and pump water from their flooded homes.

“We’ve done more for our community than FEMA, the Red Cross and the National Guard combined … ”

 

  As usual , waiting for the authorities to rescue you is a sure-fire path to misery and even death .

FEMA Disaster Centers Shut Doors ‘Due to Weather’

 

Tottenville FEMA Office Closed

” They fly into disaster areas, but flee from raindrops.

FEMA disaster recovery centers in Hurricane Sandy-ravaged sections of the city that were supposed to provide assistance to hurricane victims went MIA Wednesday morning, posting signs saying that they were closed due to the approaching Nor’easter.

The temporary shuttering of the facilities, which help victims register for disaster relief, as well as city food distribution centers come even as many of those still reeling from the monster storm were not told that they had to leave the battered areas.

On Tuesday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that residents in the low-lying portions of Staten Island, Queens and Brooklyn were advised to leave ahead of the nor’easter, which could hit the city with 60 mph gusts and several inches of rain Wednesday afternoon, but that the evacuation was not mandatory like the one issued for all of Zone A ahead of Sandy.
