I suppose this video won't be allowed to stay on YouTube for whatever reason. The network that ran it was reportedly asked by Homeland Security to remove it and did.
I watched the whole thing. It was very well done through to the end of the beginning part covering the Fusion Centers. It was especially interesting to hear the head of the Denver Fusion Center say that they are not run by the federal government, that they are each independent. It's a very strange thing to contemplate corporations and all the different agencies under homeland security right down to the local police and sheriffs being fused together but without being overseen by the federal government even though Homeland Security if federal.
It was proper of Jesse Ventura to expose that people were being put on watch list simply for supporting Ron Paul or being anti-Zionists or being pro-life (that is anti-abortion) or going to a large church (going to a large church?).
Let's see. The only people not on that list would be pro-abortion neocons going to small churches or none at all. Ah, the real Americans. They are the only people who are not potentially dangerously violent extremists. Wow!
Well, you can bet that every Muslim is on the list. I wonder if members of the Jewish Defense League are on it. They probably are. Everyone who attends any political rally whatsoever that is at all critical of US foreign or domestic policy and practices is on the list. Everyone who writes on the Internet or elsewhere the government can snoop on who is likewise critical is on the list.
By the way, I hate that term "Homeland." It's so Nazi sounding. America was always our motherland. By contrast, the Germans said fatherland. What we never said was "homeland." The first time I heard it, it scream that there was a fascist mentality behind those who named it that.
You know, none of this was tolerated by the American people after Watergate and the Frank Church Committee and such up until 9/11. We also have not had the thorough investigation of 9/11 that we need to get to the bottom of who at the Federal and other governmental levels deliberately facilitated 9/11. That needs to be the focus. If we get that done, all the rest of this will straighten itself out.
When the video started conflating the ICE detention centers with FEMA, it became quite sketchy. When the plastic grave liners were condemned as not being in preparation for a real and natural epidemic, such as the bubonic plague that wiped out, what was it, a quarter of Europe, I thought that the video did the viewer a disservice by not offering up that as a real possibility rather than that the government under the elitists are planning to kill off the mass of the population via bio-warfare for which the elitists would have been inoculated in advance. I'm not saying it's impossible. I'm simply saying that the video didn't even raise the obvious answer that the government would give.
The government is stupid for not answering questions. They should have said that the ICE "family residential centers" were for holding rounded up "illegal aliens" and been done with it. Alex Jones hasn't exactly been for open borders with, and and immigration from, Mexico. The government doesn't want to have to deal with people who won't believe the government anyway, but it's still stupid not to just answer. Not answering makes things worse, not better. Not answering leaves things ripe for conspiracy theories.
Do I think there are real police-state issues? Of course I do. The government has lied and lied and lied to the American people about reasons for going to war after war after war and about spying on us and experimenting on us and turning us against each other, etc. So I don't say that it isn't easy to start speaking in emphatic terms that grave liners are definitely for placing bodies from a government inflicted "mega-death." However, that doesn't have to be the real reason for the liners. In fact, I don't think it is. I believe Alex is reading that in simply because he thinks that everything has to reflect the most evil possibility. There are hugely evil people in the world. There are many of them. That doesn't have to mean that every possible evil use for something has to be exactly the foundation of the plans of the evil ones. It could get out of hand though. There's no doubt about that.
Do I want the government to have emergency preparedness in mind and to have preplanned to handle natural and stupid man-made disasters? Yes, I do. However, I believe that the general level of selfishness is resonating through the environment disturbing everything and causing upheaval. The answer then lies in settling things down, which means lessening and even eliminating selfishness and replacing it with the spirit of unselfish love in action (the spirit of oneness in service and friendship).
When I see the flooding everywhere, I don't automatically blame HARRP rather than Global Warming caused by the burning of oil, gas, and coal. Alex does though. Alex never admits that an increase in CO2 causes the trapping of infrared rays in the atmosphere thereby raising the average temperature. He always appeals to solar and other factors or says an increase in CO2 is only good. Well, he's a good 'ol boy from the Oil State of Texas. Go figure, as they say. Does he think cigarette smoking never caused cancer too?
So, to wrap up, I'm pointing out that after the Fusion Center portion, the other side, the other possibilities were not offered but should have been. I found the same general problem with Jesse's program on 9/11 and the Pentagon. There was a fairly thorough "other side of the story" version available on the "Above Top Secret" site when Jesse was making his program on the Pentagon and 9/11: "Concerning the 9/11 Plane vs. Missile Hitting the Pentagon Debate."
I like Alex Jones and Jesse Ventura in many ways, but they really, really need to improve their journalism. I'm trying to improve mine by looking more at both or all sides. Doing so hasn't changed my views yet, which makes me feel all the more secure in my Christian take on things. I do think though that using the term "alleged" is more in order all the way around. I see a great lack of it in the mainstream corporate media as well.
We do need to speak out against governmental abuse and over reach. The Bill of Rights does say that we have a right to be secure in our "persons, houses, papers, and effects." That's privacy. All the governmental spying makes our persons, houses, papers, and effects insecure. We have a right not to have the government even look at (search) our papers. Naturally, that same right extends to what is now digital "papers." If we make something public of our own accord, that's different.
Here's the video's description on YouTube:
Censored Jesse Ventura Show On FEMA Camps Survives On You Tube
January 5, 2011
We urge you to watch the videos below because they might not be around for much longer. Jesse Ventura's Conspiracy Theory show about the police state and FEMA camps, which TruTV never re-aired because of constant government harassment and pressure, has already been memory-holed and is now under threat of being removed from You Tube as well.
The show covers the takeover plan and what they don't want you to see — how martial law is being implemented in America. Get these videos now and share them before they disappear forever.
During his last appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Jesse Ventura confirmed that TruTV was forced to pull the show from their schedule due to government threats.
FLASHBACK: "Police State" episode of hit Ventura show covering FEMA camps pulled from air
Former Gov. Jesse Ventura and his crew at Conspiracy Theory have blown the FEMA camp issue wide open in a truly groundbreaking episode from the program's second season on TruTV. The "Police State" episode proves once and for all that the feds have trained to take on American citizens, planned for riots and disasters and made preparations to maintain order at any cost. Tune in this Friday, Nov. 12 at 10 PM Eastern/ 9 PM Central and leave the denial at the door.
This powerful episode is the largest and most in-depth investigation into FEMA camps to date— and it is scheduled to air on television. Radio host and filmmaker Alex Jones returns to the series yet again, as the team takes you to confirmed on-the-ground facilities, confronts the legislators who authorized FEMA camps and breaks down the full-scale technologically-integrated police state that includes Fusion Centers, FEMA, the Department of Homeland Security and more.
At one of many real and verified FEMA locations, Jesse Ventura and Alex Jones approach a "Residential Center" run by Homeland Security in central Texas where they find locked doors, double-fences and escape warnings around the entire perimeter. Further inside the facility, they witness a playground complex, swings and slides for children. The crew walks up to the front door and attempts to get some answers. But the officials refuse to either confirm or deny the facility's purpose, including whether or not American citizens are being held inside. However, our past investigations into this facility reveal that it has confined both children and adults, including immigrants, refugee seekers and American citizens.
Well, Google's AdSense informed me that this page contained a dead link or something but didn't say which part. It turned out to be the video. Therefore I've remove the embed to the video that is no longer available on YouTube.
The following should appear at the end of every post:
According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":
Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.
Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.
Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.
Political Campaign Intervention
Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.
Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.
Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:
- Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
- Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
- Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
- Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
- Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office
Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:
- The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
- Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
- We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
- When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
- It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
- We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
- We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
- When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
- We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
- It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
