Lawfirm Demands Emails from Minneapolis Public Schools Regarding Relationship with Terror-linked Islamic Org CAIR
AUGUST 22, 2018
Source: FCDF Demands Emails from Minneapolis Public Schools regarding Relationship with CAIR – Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund
Yesterday, FCDF sent a data records request to Minneapolis Public Schools, demanding the production of emails that could show whether MPS is unlawfully collaborating with the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) Minnesota chapter to both single out Muslim students for special benefits and revise school curricula to portray Islam in a more “inclusive” light.
In recent months, Minnesotans have raised concerns about CAIR’s influence in MPS and other area school districts. For example, MPS has held CAIR-facilitated teacher workshops called “Increasing Academic Engagement and Cultural Competency with Muslim Students.” MPS has not held workshops about increasing engagement with Christian or Jewish students. CAIR also promotes curriculum revisions that portray Islam more favorably, including revising the narrative about the Palestinian conflict with Israel.
If MPS is singling out Muslim students for favorable treatment, it is violating the First Amendment, which prohibits government from discriminating in favor of one religion. All students must be treated equally, regardless of race or religion.
MPS has a large percentage of Muslim students, especially Somali refugees. School officials nationwide have recognized that Muslim students face challenges with assimilation, including culturally related behavioral conflicts arising between students and school staff. For example, male Muslim students have had difficulty respecting and responding to female teachers due to certain Muslim cultural norms about gender equality. CAIR also claims that schools are hotbeds of “Islamophobia” and Muslim bullying. For these reasons, CAIR pressures school districts to allow them to hold “culturally relevant” sensitivity workshops.
Learning more about students’ cultural and religious backgrounds is no doubt beneficial for teachers. But problems arise when a public school district allows a religious organization to advance its agenda under the guise of ‘promoting tolerance and diversity.’
Indeed, the local community also has expressed concern about CAIR’s access to children and influence over district policy. CAIR’s mission is to promote the “active practice of Islam.” Nihad Awad, CAIR’s National Executive Director, said “informing the American public about the Islamic faith is a religious obligation,” and the purpose of its public school programs is to “create a religious educational environment.” Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR’s Director of Strategic Communications, stated: “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future. But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”
Moreover, although CAIR portrays itself as a social justice advocacy organization, national security and public policy experts have confirmed CAIR’s ties to radical Islam. For example:
Federal prosecutors have testified that CAIR was founded by members of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood
CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in financing terrorist activities in the Holy Land Foundation case
The FBI no longer works with CAIR because of its ties to terrorism
The United Arab Emirates has designated CAIR as a terrorist organization
“We continue to urge all public school districts, including MPS, to reconsider potential partnerships with CAIR that place the safety of their schoolchildren at risk,” said Piedra. “Allowing a terrorist organization to indoctrinate children defies common sense and undermines the Constitution.”
FCDF is representing five California families in a federal lawsuit challenging the San Diego Unified School District’s “anti-Islamophobia initiative” with CAIR. The Muslim group has hailed the initiative as a pilot program for a nationwide rollout. The parents oppose CAIR’s access to vulnerable children for purposes of proselytization. In response, CAIR contends that the families—whose racial makeup include white, Chinese, and Hispanic and religious makeup Christian, Buddhist, and atheist—are merely “Islamophobes.”
FCDF has asked MPS to respond to the records request within five days.

DNC phishing hack was actually a false alarm
Someone set up a fake login page for the Democratic National Committee's voter database.
AUGUST 23, 2018
The hacking attempt relied on a bogus login page for VoteBuilder, which hosts the DNC's voter database.
It must have been a bad sense of deja vu for the Democratic National Committee.
A scheme discovered and shut down Tuesday involved someone who seemed to be trying to steal usernames and passwords of Democratic Party officials by way of a fake login page for VoteBuilder, the service that hosts the DNC's voter database.
That was a disturbing echo of an incident during the 2016 US presidential election. At that time, Russian hackers infiltrated the DNC using a similar "spear phishing" method, according to indictments filed in July against 12 Russian agents. And cyberattacks against US electoral systems have only ramped up since. On Monday, for instance, Microsoft said it foiled similar phishing schemes targeting conservative groups.
Tech companies, along with US agencies like the Department of Homeland Security, have increased efforts to protect elections against cyberattacks, which are now coming from nations like China and Iran as well, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said Sunday.
But the trickery uncovered Tuesday seems to have been more benign.
The DNC said late Wednesday that the phishing site was an unauthorized simulation.
"We, along with the partners who reported the site, now believe it was built by a third party as part of a simulated phishing test on VoteBuilder," said Bob Lord, the DNC's chief security officer, in a statement. "The test, which mimicked several attributes of actual attacks on the Democratic party's voter file, was not authorized by the DNC, VoteBuilder nor any of our vendors."
The committee said that the unnamed third party took precautions to ensure that sensitive data was not compromised.
"While we are extremely relieved that this wasn't an attempted intrusion by a foreign adversary, this incident is further proof that we need to continue to be vigilant in light of potential attacks," Lord said.
The DNC learned about the phishing site Tuesday morning, after security researchers from Lookout, a mobile cybersecurity company, alerted the organization.
Lookout's "Phishing AI," artificial intelligence that automatically picks up on such attack campaigns, discovered the attempt and reported it to DigitalOcean, a cloud provider. The spoof page was almost impossible to distinguish from the original and was taken down within hours, Lookout said in a statement.
"We see no evidence that any sensitive data was stolen, and our initial investigation indicates that we were able to address this threat prior to the attack being launched," DigitalOcean's chief security officer, Josh Feinblum, said in a statement at the time. "We are continuing to partner with the DNC and appropriate law enforcement agencies on this issue."
The DNC contacted the FBI after learning about the hacking attempt. The FBI declined to comment. NGP VAN, the organization that owns VoteBuilder, didn't respond to a request for comment.
CNN reported the attempted hack earlier Wednesday.
CNN reported the attempted hack earlier Wednesday.
First published Aug. 22 at 10:12 a.m. PT
Update at 11:19 a.m.: Added details on how researchers found the spoofed website, along with responses from Lookout and Digital Ocean.
Update Aug. 23 at 5:44 a.m. PT: Added response from the DNC and reworked elements of the story to reflect the DNC's disclosure that the phishing site was a simulation.

The value of deterring illegal immigrants from trying to attempt a dangerous journey into the United States doesn’t seem to be that high for liberals. That’s true even when those immigrants are bringing young children along on a journey often facilitated by human traffickers.
Instead, the only thing that we discuss are the psychological “scars” suffered by children who are apprehended at the border and separated from their parents, even as the Trump administration tries to fix the problem.
Never mind the potential physical and psychological scars inflicted by a horrifying journey — that won’t score political points toward the reinstatement of a catch-and-release policy for illegal aliens. In short, deterrence not only isn’t a factor for liberals, it shouldn’t even be discussed.
This is problematic, if only because deterrence actually works.
In fact, it’s the most effective way to ensure that children aren’t separated from their parents or suffer emotional pain from a harsh journey that takes them away from home and often puts them in unspeakable danger.
But don’t take my word for it. Take the words of potential migrants who have been considering trying to enter the United States illegally.
This report from Fox News shows what many of them are thinking about the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy regarding those caught crossing the southern border.
“See, I have two kids,” one woman told a reporter speaking through an intepreter. “They’ll take them away and send them to a shelter. If it comes to a choice where I have to choose between my kids and crossing, I’ll keep my kids.”
Now, separating families likely shouldn’t be a goal of either the Trump administration or of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. However, the point is that it has had a deterrent effect.
Besides this mother’s admission, which is a telling statement of just how effective strict border enforcement can be, there are several interesting things to note about the video, particularly since it takes place in the port of entry in Tijuana.
One of the gentlemen being interviewed is from Cameroon, and he says he’s seeking asylum because someone wanted to kill him back in his home country.
“I don’t believe the United States will allow someone to kill me,” he can be heard saying.
No, and Mexico likely wouldn’t either, at least when it comes to the individual he’s claiming “credible fear” of. This is the point of asylum under international law: To escape a situation where one has a credible fear for one’s life and into another country where that credible fear doesn’t exist.
Asylum isn’t supposed to involve venue-shopping. When you leave your country due to those aforementioned circumstances, the point is to find the first country you can enter where those circumstances don’t exist.
Cameroonian ne’er-do-wells are unlikely to be able to track this gentleman to Mexico — or, on the off chance they would be able to, they wouldn’t have any less trouble finding him there than finding him in the United States.
The same thing can be said for the current influx of asylum-seekers from Central America. If you feel yourself under threat in El Salvador or Guatemala, that threat isn’t likely to follow you into Mexico.
The fact that they’re still willing to make the trek much farther north indicates this isn’t about a credible fear, but more about a credible belief that getting into the United States, however they do it, isn’t a particularly difficult task.
As the interviews with this women showed, that impression appears to be changing. Negative consequences really can discourage unwanted behavior.
And that’s not a bad thing.

Caged migrant children’ go viral… until picture turns out taken under Obama, not Trump
Published time: 29 May, 2018 01:12
Edited time: 29 May, 2018 06:40
Journalists, Obama’s former speechwriter and other public figures all quietly deleted their misplaced horror at images of caged migrant children in the US when they found out the picture was taken under President Obama.
CNN journalist Hadas Gold, NYT Magazine editor-in-chief Jake Silverstein, Obama’s speechwriter Jon Favreau, Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour and former LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa were all caught out by a seemingly new article that featured an image of two migrant children sleeping in a cage at an ICE detention facility.
The group, along with several others too excited to tweet their dismay to check the article’s publication date, told their ‘followers’ to look at the “disturbing” images and the immigration policy that put them there. The only problem? It was under President Obama’s watch, not Trump’s.
“This is happening right now, and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible," Favreau wrote in screenshots captured by Caleb Hull, senior editor of The IJR.
"Speechless. This is not who we are as a nation," wrote former Mayor Villaraigosa.
Favreau and the rest all quietly deleted the tweets when they learned of their blunder. Gold and Silverstein acknowledged their mistake, with the latter blaming his family and the former pretending she knew it to be old footage.
The photo was actually part of a story, published in 2014 by The Arizona Republic, about migrant children who enter the country illegally. The children, once apprehended by US Customs and Border Protection, were shipped to Nogales from overwhelmed processing facilities in Texas.

Viral Photo of Caged Children Actually from Obama Era, Nothing To Do with Trump
By Jack Davis
May 28, 2018 at 7:05am
Activists attacked the Trump administration Sunday for its treatment of children who were detained at the border, based upon a picture that showed children sleeping in a cage.
There was only one flaw in the tweets that called the treatment “inhumane” and laid it at the door of President Donald Trump.
The image was from an Arizona newspaper report from 2014, during the second term of former President Barack Obama, The Daily Caller reported.
Former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau began the avalanche of tweets with a since-deleted comment.
“This is happening right now, and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible,” Favreau wrote. He added a link to the image, which was part of an Arizona Republic photo gallery from 2014.
TRENDING: Tom Arnold Teams Up With Cohen: We’re ‘Taking Trump Down’
A series of tweets followed as many used the outdated image and applied it as though it was current.
“Children of immigrants are being held in cages, like dogs, at ICE detention centers, sleeping on the floor. It’s an abomination,” Shaun King tweeted.
Context for the picture was provided by Fox News, which noted that the picture was taken at a time when immigration officials had detained more than 1,000 children who illegally crossed America’s Southern Border.
Controversy over the image reflects the debate over immigration policy that separates children from their parents.
Trump has called for changing that policy as part of broad-based immigration policy reform.
Even after the true origin of the picture was revealed, few of those who tweeted it clarified that the picture was from Obama’s days in the White House.
One who did was Jake Silverstein, editor in chief of the New York Times Magazine.
“Correction: this link, which was going around this morning, is from 2014. Still disturbing, of course, but only indirectly related to current situation. My bad (and a good reminder not to RT things while distracted w family on the weekend),” he tweeted.

One topic that I feel is often over-looked in the U.S. today is the Executive Orders that President Obama has signed into law. I would like to take a little time and look at just one of the one hundred and eighty eight executive orders Obama has signed into existence.
On October 5, 2009, Obama signed (EO) 13514. The EO addresses the US government’s response to preparing “the Nation for the impacts of climate change.”
This includes prolonged periods of:
Excessively high temperatures
During such times, the government will collaborate with “affected communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies, and public health across the Nation.”
This EO broadens the power of the Federal Government in the name of Climate Control.
Days after warning, “I’ve got a pen and … a phone and if Congress won’t do its job, I’ll do mine,” Obama met with his national security team to green-light a new climate change project. “Call me the Rainmaker,” he told the group assembled.
A heavily redacted copy of a classified report titled “America Cools Down on Climate” (ACDC) and obtained by TheGreenGrok outlines the audacious plan to use commercial air traffic to mitigate the growing impacts of climate change across the United States.
The plan falls under the category of what is known as Geoengineering: the attempt by humans to slow, stop, or even reverse global warming by manipulating the environment instead of slowing the production of greenhouse gas emissions themselves.
Geoengineering examples include injecting particles into the stratosphere to reflect sunlight back into space and dumping iron into the ocean to enhance the uptake of atmospheric carbon dioxide by oceanic phytoplankton. The ACDC plan, code-named “Rainmaker,” is considered by experts to be groundbreaking not only because it did not require the construction of a vast industrial infrastructure; it also helped keep flights on time. This can be done either by mixing nano-sized particles of metals such as Aluminum and Barium into commercial jet airline’s fuel or directly spraying from military and private contractor’s aircraft. There is a patent for this process.
Could these metals and others be the cause for the recent outbreaks of strange respiratory illness’s sweeping the country? With these clouds of nano-sized particles falling down onto the soil, water, plants, animals and humans, what type of health and environmental effects could Geoengineering have on the planet and it’s inhabitants? The following are Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for the metals in question.
Aluminum (AL): Potential Acute Health Effects:
Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant). Non-irritating to the eyes. Non-hazardous in case of ingestion.
Potential Chronic Health Effects:
CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: Not available. MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: Not available. TERATOGENIC EFFECTS: Not available. DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Not available. The substance is toxic to lungs. Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage. Repeated exposure to a highly toxic material may produce general deterioration of health by an accumulation in one or many human organs.
Barium (Ba): Effects of Exposure:
To the best of our knowledge the chemical, physical, and toxicological properties of barium have not been thoroughly investigated and recorded.
Barium compounds may cause severe gastroenteritis, including abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea, tremors, faintness, paralysis of the arms and legs, and slow or irregular heartbeat. Severe cases may produce collapse and death due to respiratory failure. Soluble barium compounds are more likely to cause these effects than insoluble compounds. Inhalation of fumes may cause sore throat, coughing, labored breathing, and irritation of the respiratory tract as well as the above symptoms.
Inhalation: May cause severe irritation to the nose, throat, and upper respiratory tract.
Could Geoengineering be the cause of the extreme weather we have seen in the recent years? If Obama is the “rainmaker” as he coined himself, why not make some rain in drought stricken California and Texas? Could this engineering be used to create disasters that the Federal Government could use to abuse EO #13514? Also, could this aerosol assault on the planet and people be creating sickness and chronic bad health? If so why? Ask yourself who is to gain from this? Could it be Monsanto with the creation of GMO seeds that can grow in ground poisoned by aluminum? How about big pharma and health care? I feel there are way too many questions left unanswered and there needs to be more independent research done on this matter as soon as possible.

FEMA CONCENTRATION CAMPS: Locations and Executive Orders
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. Ask yourself if you really
want to be on Ashcroft's list.
The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a "mass
exodus" of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be
quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84
allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into
Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will
be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose.
Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the
program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the
federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state
and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders
already listed on the Federal Register also are part of the legal framework
for this operation.
The camps all have railroad facilities as well as roads leading to and from
the detention facilities. Many also have an airport nearby. The majority of
the camps can house a population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the
largest of these facilities is just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The
Alaskan facility is a massive mental health facility and can hold
approximately 2 million people.
Now let's review the justification for any actions taken...
Executive Orders associated with FEMA that would suspend the Constitution
and the Bill of Rights. These Executive Orders have been on record for
nearly 30 years and could be enacted by the stroke of a Presidential
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990
allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control
of highways and seaports.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995
allows the government to seize and control the communication media.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997
allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum,
fuels and minerals.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998
allows the government to seize all means of transportation, including
personal cars, trucks or vehicles of any kind and total control over all
highways, seaports, and waterways.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10999
allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000
allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001
allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002
designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to take over all airports and
aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate
communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be
abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005
allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051
specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives
authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased
international tensions and economic or financial crisis.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310
grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out
in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial
and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and
correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049
assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and
agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921
allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to
establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of
energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S.
financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides
that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress
cannot review the action for six months. The Federal Emergency Management
Agency has broad powers in every aspect of the nation. General Frank
Salzedo, chief of FEMA's Civil Security Division stated in a 1983
conference that he saw FEMA's role as a "new frontier in the protection of
individual and governmental leaders from assassination, and of civil and
military installations from sabotage and/or attack, as well as prevention
of dissident groups from gaining access to U.S. opinion, or a global
audience in times of crisis." FEMA's powers were consolidated by President
Carter to incorporate the...
National Security Act of 1947
allows for the strategic relocation of industries, services, government and
other essential economic activities, and to rationalize the requirements
for manpower, resources and production facilities.
1950 Defense Production Act
gives the President sweeping powers over all aspects of the economy.
Act of August 29, 1916
authorizes the Secretary of the Army, in time of war, to take possession of
any transportation system for transporting troops, material, or any other
purpose related to the emergency.
International Emergency Economic Powers Act
enables the President to seize the property of a foreign country or
national. These powers were transferred to FEMA in a sweeping consolidation

OTHER LOCATIONS IN THE UNITED STATES
There are many other locations not listed above that are worthy of
consideration as a possible detention camp site, but due to space
limitations and the time needed to verify, could not be included here.
Virtually all military reservations, posts, bases, stations, & depots can
be considered highly suspect (because it is "federal" land). Also fitting
this category are "Regional Airports" and "International Airports" which
also fall under federal jurisdiction and have limited-access areas. Mental
hospitals, closed hospitals & nursing homes, closed military bases,
wildlife refuges, state prisons, toxic waste dumps, hotels and other areas
all have varying degrees of potential for being a detention camp area. The
likelihood of a site being suspect increases with transportation access to
the site, including airports/airstrips, railheads, navigable waterways &
ports, interstate and US highways. Some facilities are "disguised" as
industrial or commercial properties, camouflaged or even wholly contained
inside large buildings (Indianapolis) or factories. Many inner-city
buildings left vacant during the de-industrialization of America have been
quietly acquired and held, sometimes retrofitted for their new uses.
Our Canadian friends tell us that virtually all Canadian military bases,
especially those north of the 50th Parallel, are all set up with
concentration camps. Not even half of these can be listed, but here are a
few sites with the massive land space to handle any population:
Suffield CFB - just north of Medicine Hat, less than 60 miles from the USA.
Primrose Lake Air Range - 70 miles northeast of Edmonton.
Wainwright CFB - halfway between Medicine Hat and Primrose Lake.
Ft. Nelson - Northernmost point on the BC Railway line.
Ft. McPherson - Very cold territory ~ NW Territories. Ft. Providence -
Located on Great Slave Lake. Halifax - Nova Scotia. Dept. of National
Defense reserve.... And others.
Guayanabo, Puerto Rico - Federal prison camp facility. Capacity unknown.
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba - US Marine Corps Base - Presently home to 30,000
Mariel Cubans and 40,000 Albanians. Total capacity unknown.

How Obama brought back Muslim slavery of black people 22 Nov, 2017 by https://www.herald.co.zw/how-obama-brought-back-muslim-slavery-of-black-people/
Daniel Greenfield Correspondent
AMERICA???S first black president didn???t bring ???Hope??? to America, but he did bring slave auctions to Africa. After Obama ???liberated??? Libya for the Islamist rebels, Arab Muslims sell black slaves for a few hundred dollars at slave auctions. While leftists tear down the statues of slave owners from centuries ago, it was the left that brought back the sale of black men as property.
Slavery was always one of Barack Obama???s favourite subjects. It was a favourite subject because it provided him with countless opportunities for tearing down America. When called upon to disavow the racist, anti-Semitic and anti-American rants of his mentor, he instead denounced the Constitution as ???stained by this nation???s original sin of slavery.???
At the funeral of the Dallas police officers murdered by a member of the racist hate group he supported, he once again invoked this original sin even while he was justifying Black Lives Matter???s bigotry and violence. At Hillary???s DNC convention, Michelle Obama claimed that the White House had been ???built by slaves???. The unifying theme was that America???s racist past made its origins, including their constitutional restraints on his power, illegitimate.
A constitution tainted by slavery should not be able to inhibit the actions of the nation???s first black president. His wife had a special moral authority over the White House because it had been built by slaves. Slavery gave the Obamas a unique moral claim on power. But Barack Obama and his ancestors had never been slaves. They might have been slave owners and sellers. And America???s first black president unquestionably helped bring Muslim slavery back to Libya. After Obama invaded Libya to aid the Muslim Brotherhood, black slaves are being sold there once more.
Videos show black people being put up for sale for as little as $400 by Arab Libyan Muslim slave traders. The black men being sold as slaves are described as ???big strong boys for farm work???. After years of lecturing Americans about the ???original sin??? of slavery, Obama brought it back. The black men being sold as slaves are Nigerians. Islam forbids Muslims to enslave Muslims. Nigeria has a large non-Muslim population. It is likely another case of Arab Muslims selling Christians into slavery.
Unlike President Bush, Obama paid little attention to Africa. When he did pay attention to Africa, it was largely to reward Muslim violence against African Christians in Nigeria, Kenya or Côte d???Ivoire. And, most prominently, Libya. Obama???s Arab Spring encouraged Islamist movements in their bids for power whether they used ballots or bullets. The resulting devastation in the Middle East, with its death toll in the hundreds of thousands, and the rise of ISIS, has captured the world???s attention. But the Islamist wave, spread chaos and terror through Africa. Egypt and Tunisia fell into the hands of Islamist killers who brutalised their own people even as the media cheered these ???democratic revolutions???. Boko Haram allied with ISIS in Nigeria. And Obama illegally bombed Libya to aid the Muslim Brotherhood and allied Islamist groups in their bid for power.
The regime change operation in Libya had been urged on by Hillary Clinton. The former Secretary of State had been encouraged by her associates to use it as a platform for a presidential run. But the Islamist takeover in Libya made for a bad photo op. Our attempts to address the flow of Qatari weapons into the hands of terrorists (after Obama gave a pass to their weapons smuggling scheme during the civil war) led to the Benghazi massacre. And the blackest stain on Hillary???s record. But it didn???t stop with Benghazi. Libya tumbled into a second civil war between Islamists and the Libyan government.
Despite the media blackout, the violence touched off by Obama???s regime change has never really stopped. ISIS has a significant presence in Libya. And until recently had a death grip on parts of Benghazi. And that isn???t the worst of it. The Islamist Arab rebels had quickly begun targeting Africans during the civil war in a racist purge. Photos and videos showed be-headings, beatings and mutilations. The false claims of genocide in Benghazi that Obama had used to justify his invasion became real when his invasion led to the actual ethnic cleansing of Africans in Libya.
The first black president, who had allied with hate groups such as Black Lives Matter that accused America of genocide, had made possible an actual genocide of black people by his Arab Muslim allies. The rebels he had armed and backed would identify themselves as, ???The Brigade for Purging Slaves, Black Skin???. And then it got even worse. The Tuaregs, a Berber Islamist people whose leaders claim to trace their ???pure??? ancestry back to Mohammed, invaded and captured a large section of Mali.
Accompanying them were Al Qaeda Jihadists. The Tuaregs keep slaves and have been at war with the ???blacks???. Their hostilities were motivated in large part by the conviction that ???blacks??? were slaves while they were the descendants of Mohammed. Obama ignored another racist Islamist war caused by his pro-Islamist intervention. Instead it was the French that stepped up. The recent deaths of four American soldiers in Niger however can be traced back to the disaster in Mali. Sergeant. La David Johnson, the African-American soldier whose condolence call by President Trump touched off a storm of leftist outrage, was murdered after being captured and tied up.
The Jihadists who murdered Johnson are believed to be from the Islamic State in the Greater Sahara, an ISIS affiliate empowered by the Mali invasion, whose perpetrators are from a group deeming themselves ???white???. While President Trump has been accused of racism by Rep. Frederica Wilson over the death of the African-American soldier, it was Obama who had empowered the racist Islamists that murdered him. Meanwhile back in Libya, the slave trade has made a comeback. Videos show public slave auctions in Libya where light skinned Arab Libyans sell black Nigerians for a few hundred dollars.
The slave auction, that terrible institution, wasn???t brought back by the right. It was the left. Slavery isn???t new to the Islamic world. And where Islam rules, slavery returns. The leftist-Islamist alliance doesn???t just mean the burning of churches and the bombing of synagogues, or that Jewish students are hounded out of college campuses while European streets flow with blood. Muslims immigrants have brought slaves to America.
When Islamists took over Egypt, one of their political projects was undoing the ban on slavery. ???It???s not possible to say that slavery is inherently absolutely categorically immoral in all times and places since it was allowed by the Quran and the Prophet,??? Professor Jonathan Brown, an Islamic Civilisation professor, at Georgetown, insisted. Brown is an Islamic convert. The Washington Post, and the rest of the left, came to his defense. The left spends a great deal of time lecturing Americans on the evils of slavery. But it is they and their allies, from Cuba to Libya, who practice slavery today. The slave auction is ancient history in America. But Obama???s Islamist alliance brought it back to Africa.

I have been around for 20 years doing my show Poppen Report,and have never seen such great journalism from independent media sites like Infowars or Breitbart,and CNN is dead last and dead wrong alway now reporting bad image or narrative to please the top 1%.
They should have focused on pleasing the "majority audience" not trying to divide the American independent thinker into becoming sheep or slaves to the system called Establishment.
I have never been prouder over the years to be called a Infowarrior and vetted so many times by CNN in past,they now regret losing my journalism on their platform as I prefer telling nothing bu the truth,whole truth,so help me god and protected by god.
Their audience is literally dying
Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com - March 6, 2018
One of the primary reasons why CNN is attempting to sabotage Infowars by having YouTube shut down our channels is because we are attracting an increasingly younger audience, while CNN’s is literally dying.
According to Nielsen Live, in 2017, the average CNN viewer was aged 60-years-old. This appears to be creeping up since the last time the figures were run, the average was 59-years-old.
Compare this to the average age of viewers to my YouTube channel.
CNN's average primetime viewer is 59 years old.
Compare this to my demographics, where the biggest groups are 18-24 and 25-34.
This is why they are so obsessed with bringing us down.
I've nothing against the elderly, but CNN's audience is literally dying.
By far the biggest demographic is 18-24-year-olds and 25-34-year-olds.
While my audience appears to be getting younger and younger, CNN’s audience is literally dying.
This is also backed up by my own anecdotal experience. Every day, I receive glowing messages of support from people in their teens and early 20’s telling me how I changed their minds and that they are now conservatives or libertarians.
Virtually everyone who recognizes me on the street is also in these same age brackets.
Studies show that Generation Z, people born after 1995, are also likely to be more conservative than any generation since World War II.
According to Forbes, “Gen Z is more individualistic, more conservative both socially and fiscally, and they’re already making waves of impact on our political system.”
Last year, when I quipped that “conservatism is the new counter-culture,” the media defensively reacted with a volley of articles asserting that I was wrong.
But when dominant cultural institutions, the academic establishment, Silicon Valley and the legacy media all lean increasingly far left, how could conservatism not be the counter-culture?
You can’t be the dominant culture and the counter-culture. This is also reflected in messages I receive from teens in school who tell me that being a conservatism is a new form of rebellion that more and more young people are adopting as an identity.
Meanwhile, CNN’s ratings are crumbling.
CNN does not have a single show in the top 20 news shows.
Congratulations @FoxNews: Fox has 15 of the top 20 shows with @SeanHannity and @TuckerCarlson leading the pack at 1st and 2nd respectively. CNN has become totally irrelevant, down 19% from last year with only 1 show in the Top 25 (#24th)
Figures released last week show CNN has lost 19% of its total day audience and 16% of its primetime audience. Despite its widespread reach across airports, bars and hotel rooms, CNN returned an average audience of 979,000 total viewers, half that of MSNBC and way behind Fox News, which boasts and average viewing audience of 2.766 million viewers.
After enjoying a brief spurt thanks to the backlash to Trump’s election, CNN has now returned to its natural state of malaise and decline.
Given this, maybe CNN should concentrate on improving their dreadful ratings instead of trying to sabotage other news networks.
CNN is a global news organization with endless corporate funding and establishment-backing. They dwarf Infowars. But the fact that on some levels, despite having a vastly inferior budget and staff, we are beating them and demolishing their narrative, drives them completely insane.

Japanese residents from San Pedro, California, are shuttled to a temporary detention center on April 5, 1942.
On July 5, 1987, the day after Independence Day, a year and two days after President Reagan’s centennial rededication of the Statue of Liberty, and at the height of the Iran-Contra hearings, a monumental story appeared in the Miami Herald. Penned by investigative reporter Alfonso Chardy, the piece claimed to expose the workings of a “secret government” in place during the first six-and-a-half years of the Reagan Presidency, set up initially in 1980 to monitor then-President Carter’s efforts to release the Iran hostages. The clandestine operation, purportedly authorized by President Reagan himself after winning the 1980 presidential election, then metastasized into a cabal of troubleshooters even more powerful than President Nixon’s “Plumbers,” made up of Reagan advisors, intelligence veterans, and military liaisons like Oliver North.
What caused the most eye-raising among Herald readers was the account of a series of secret meetings between Oliver North and then-FEMA director Louis O. Giuffrida. FEMA, created by Jimmy Carter in 1979, had been given powers to aid in the aftermath of disasters that transcended the authority of local officials. Chardy reported that Reagan officials had gone to FEMA with plans to suspend the U.S. Constitution in the event of a devastating nuclear strike that destroyed American infrastructure, communications, and command and control. FEMA had in fact been practicing these “Readiness Exercises” since 1982, in conjunction with the Department of Defense. Diana Reynolds, affiliated with the Edward R. Murrow Center at Fletcher School for Public Policy at Tufts University, revealed the names of these joint exercises in a 1990 article in the CovertAction Information Bulletin: “Proud Saber/Rex-82,” “Pre-Nest,” and “Rex-84/Night Train.” REX 84 would eventually become an umbrella term for the entire series of Reagan-era acts and exercises.
The specifics of these plans in Chardy’s 1987 article were truly shocking:
North’s involvement with FEMA set off the first major clash between the official government and the advisers and led to the formal letter of protest in 1984 from then-Attorney General Smith… FEMA’s clash with Smith occurred over a secret contingency plan that called for suspension of the Constitution, turning control of the United States over to FEMA, appointment of military commanders to run state and local governments and declaration of martial law during a national crisis… The martial law portions of the plan were outlined in a June 30, 1982, memo by Giuffrida’s deputy for national preparedness programs, John Brinkerhoff. A copy of the memo was obtained by The Herald. The scenario outlined in the Brinkerhoff memo resembled somewhat a paper Giuffrida had written in 1970 at the Army War College in Carlisle, Pa., in which he advocated martial law in case of a national uprising by black militants. The paper also advocated the roundup and transfer to “assembly centers or relocation camps” of at least 21 million “American Negroes.”
Outrage followed, of course. Not just the presumption that North was secretly working with elements of FEMA under the Attorney General’s nose, not just Giuffrida recycling a 15-year-old emergency plan concocted during the height of paranoia about black nationalism in white America, but the very concept of American concentration camps roiled the public’s conscience. Of course, American concentration camps were nothing new. The history of the forced relocation and imprisonment of Japanese-Americans during World War II was well-attested and even formally apologized for in 1988 by Reagan through signing of the 1988 Civil Liberties Act. Even further back, of course, lies America’s shameful ethnic cleansing of Native peoples and enslavement of Africans, both of which required vast populations to be corralled and controlled. The dual legacy of both Indian reservations and chattel slavery echoes down to today’s America in a myriad of monstrous ways.
Reagan had fostered and acted as political mentor to Louis O. Giuffrida. Before being named FEMA head, Giuffrida had worked under then-Governor Reagan as the head of the California Specialized Training Institute, established in 1971. This was a governmental agency meant to train California authorities in emergency management tactics, one of which included a program to train police in paramilitary tactics during “civil disturbances.” Giuffrida’s Army War College paper obviously loomed large in Reagan’s decision to employ him, given Reagan’s historic paranoia over perceived black militancy. Giuffrida’s plan found its second life in these secret FEMA contingency plans uncovered by Chardy and others. Whistleblowers like Attorney General William Smith knew that the outlined domestic insurgency contingencies far outstripped FEMA’s disaster-planning mandate, even when put in the context of the decade’s fear of global nuclear conflict. FEMA’s secret expansion and exercises like REX 84 were ostensibly meant to protect the government from widespread popular rebellion if Reagan ordered U.S. troops to intervene directly in the Nicaraguan conflict—less than a decade after the painful and divisive Vietnam conflict.
This Miami Herald article, while a blockbuster, was not the first press mention of REX 84 or its predecessor plans; it was simply the first time the mainstream press had addressed the subject. Journalists, activists, and insurgents on both sides of the political spectrum had been working on these stories since 1984 (and previously, in some cases) in the fringe and underground press. Moreover, this opposition to and publicizing of REX 84 appeared in extremist political circles one wouldn’t expect to be hostile to the Reagan administration’s plans to round up African-Americans. The far-right antisemitic Liberty Lobby published an article in April of 1984 in its Spotlight newspaper titled “Reagan Orders Concentration Camps,” where Spotlight‘s own whistleblowers, ostensibly U.S. armed forces officers who were followers of the Liberty Lobby’s extreme right-wing politics, had inside knowledge of REX 84 a mere week after the supposedly secret Executive Order had been signed by President Reagan. The Spotlight article listed the locations of these camps (mostly near or in U.S. Army forts, although notably there was supposedly one near Oakland, California; keep this in mind). Liberty Lobby’s concern was for its own extremist right-wing readership, not for left-wing opponents of a Central American war. In the article, author James Harrer says the camps might be reserved for “a citizen [who] subscribes to the wrong newsletter,” asserting that the government might use a list prepared by the Jewish Anti-Defamation League to identify right-wing “patriots” to intern. This concern among right-wing militants about domestic internment camps operating under FEMA auspices would mutate into conspiracy theories like the UN Black Helicopter urban legends of the 1990s.
However, stretching back into the 1970s, the alert in underground media over plans for concentration camps and internment was almost entirely a left-wing concern, given the federal government’s political alignment under Nixon. In 1973, as Watergate broke, a new magazine appeared in Washington, D.C., raising hackles among the intelligence community. It was called CounterSpy and it declared itself a watchdog to the out-of-control American intelligence establishment. After the resignation of President Nixon, CounterSpy editors found an opening to expose the corruption in the Nixon White House and the degree to which Nixon had co-opted America’s intelligence establishment, following the Church Committee investigations in the U.S. Senate. (In 1975, CounterSpy had openly advocated for the exposure of CIA agents working abroad; the December 1975 killing of CIA Athens Station Chief Richard Welch by Marxists was initially blamed on CounterSpy by the intelligence community, even though Welch had not been identified in that role and station in the magazine.)
Ron Ridenhour, a GI who had served in Vietnam and was integral in exposing the My Lai Massacre, wrote an article in the Winter 1976 issue of CounterSpy titled “Garden Plot and S.W.A.T.: U.S. Police as New Action Army,” which detailed U.S. Army plans to handle widespread civil unrest in the aftermath of the riots of the mid-’60s. Ridenhour’s earlier 1975 article in New Times featured actual excerpts from Operation GARDEN PLOT documents, including an account of an exercise undertaken in 1969 called Operation CABLE SPLICER. This training exercise simulated a domestic military action designed to quell civil unrest in the Western states (California, Oregon, Washington). Governor Reagan gave an opening speech to the personnel involved in CABLE SPLICER, which featured the ominous opening “laugh lines” to the assembled military and police presence: “You know, there are people in the state who, if they could see this gathering right now and my presence here, would decide their worst fears and convictions had been realized—I was planning a military takeover.” Future Reagan White House eminence grise and second-term Attorney General Edwin Meese, then working for Governor Reagan as executive secretary, said of CABLE SPLICER: “This is an operation, this is an exercise, this is an objective which is going forward because in the long run… it is the only way that will be able to prevail.” Meese would later be implicated in a number of the Reagan White House’s more notorious ethical lapses, and would be forced to resign as Attorney General due to the Wedtech no-bid scandal.
These left-wing activists’ and journalists’ grand fantasies of concentration camps and military takeovers probably seemed outrageous to most of middle America. But it had only been a few years since COINTELPRO (the FBI’s domestic “Counter Intelligence Program”) had been exposed by ordinary citizen activists. COINTELPRO had been designed to discredit and scatter left-wing political organizing, the Civil Rights Movement, and various black empowerment organizations. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover even used post-McCarthyism fears of Communist-consorting to scare black civil rights leaders away from activism: classic divide-and-conquer. These sorts of abuses, going back 20 years or more, were one of the main factors that led to the Church Committee’s establishment. The combination of citizen action and government investigation demonstrated conclusively to the American people that their own government was both spying on them and working against their constitutional right to peaceably assemble.
Chardy’s article had the impact it did because the mainstream media had been largely silent about such affairs for the first six years of Reagan’s presidency. One could certainly attribute this silence to Reagan’s ability as “the Great Communicator”—and his ability to charm an adversarial media. One could also attribute this silence to a concerted effort among corporate-controlled media to stick to the status quo, to ignore exposés that might cost them ratings, advertisers, or subscriptions. But some individuals had no such concerns about access or boat-rocking: artists, specifically authors of literature, who used REX 84 and its family of conspiracies in an effort to alert the American people to the possible curtailment of their freedoms. The “urban legend” quality of these tales of U.S. government concentration camps and military takeovers filtered through underground news, art, and fiction in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s and then, inevitably, into the 1980s mainstream and beyond.
Canadian author Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale (1985) is a speculative look at a future America, the Republic of Gilead, where religious fundamentalists have used a crisis in fertility to take over the U.S. government, strip women of all rights, and turn fertile women into forced breeders called “Handmaids.” The novel examines how the putsch created an oppressive patriarchal, white supremacist state with details that sound creepily familiar to GARDEN PLOT (leaving aside the forced “resettlement” of Handmaids into training camps located at commandeered public schools). On the night of the “Ceremony,” when the protagonist, Handmaid “Offred,” is compelled to submit to sex with her “Commander” to produce an heir for the elite, the entire household is permitted to watch television. The state broadcasting apparatus shows images of religious apostates and heretics like Baptists and Quakers being rounded up, but there’s also an update from Detroit:
Now we can see a city again, from the air. This used to be Detroit. Under the voice of the announcer there’s the thunk of artillery. From the skyline columns of smoke ascend.
‘Resettlement of the Children of Ham is continuing on schedule,’ says the reassuring pink face, back on the screen. ‘Three thousand have arrived this week in National Homeland One, with another two thousand in transit.’ How are they transporting that many people at once? Trains, buses? We are not shown any pictures of this. National Homeland One is in North Dakota. Lord knows what they’re supposed to do, once they get there. Farm, is the theory.
Leaving aside Offred’s suspicion that there is in fact no resettlement, this passage requires a little bit of unpacking. In Christian exegesis from the Middle Ages onward, Noah’s three sons—Japheth, Ham, and Shem—were believed to be the ancestors of Europeans, Africans, and the Semitic peoples, respectively. The belief in a “Curse of Ham” as seen literally in the skin color of Africans was used as theological justification for the European enslavement of African peoples. In the Gilead of Atwood’s novel, this designation has returned as a way of Othering and eventually eliminating black Americans in the same Biblically-ordained way that Handmaids have been rendered into property and status symbols for the regime’s Commanders. In the far-future afterword, which takes place in a cheekily familiar academic conference in the year 2195, the scholars of Gileadean culture note that “[Gilead]’s racist policies… were firmly rooted in the pre-Gilead period, and racist fears provided some of the emotional fuel that allowed the Gilead takeover to succeed as well as it did.” The intimation among these far-future scholars is that it was intelligence and armed forces conspirators who orchestrated the Gileadean takeover of the U.S., and that they followed a plan they’d had all along.
Don DeLillo’s novel White Noise (also 1985) looks at the REX 84 family of stories from a slightly less fantastic (and consequently more disarming) perspective: that of the traditional government-run disaster management role of FEMA. During the novel’s central set piece, an “airborne toxic event” caused by a train derailment has led to the evacuation of a large part of the state, including the college town where our protagonist, Jack Gladney, teaches Hitler Studies. He is putting gas into the family station wagon when the event occurs, and he seeks aid at the evacuation point, a Boy Scout camp. There, technicians and aid workers have already established operations; computers and communications equipment are online. Gladney eyes the worker who’s interviewing him:
‘That’s quite an armband you’ve got there. What does SIMUVAC mean? Sounds important.’
‘Short for simulated evacuation. A new state program they’re still battling over funds for.’
‘But this evacuation isn’t simulated. It’s real.’
‘We know that. But we thought we could use it as a model.’
‘A form of practice? Are you saying you saw a chance to use the real event in order to rehearse the simulation?’
‘We took it right into the streets.’
All throughout White Noise, echoes of the actual events of the novel are found in the pages of supermarket tabloids, which, at the time, were one of the most popular delivery methods for outrageous urban legends. As Gladney’s wife Babette reads from a tabloid psychic’s predictions at their evacuation camp, Gladney notes to himself, “The tabloid future, with its mechanism of a hopeful twist to apocalyptic events, was perhaps not so very remote from our own immediate experience.” After the airborne toxic event, SIMUVAC remains behind, becoming part of the landscape of Gladney’s everyday life, performing drills at the town supermarket and investigating strange chemicals at the local school. Mysterious figures in environment suits pop up here and there throughout the remainder of the novel, investigating disasters both simulated and (possibly) real. After the airborne toxic event gives this shadowy state group license to walk the streets of College-on-the-Hill, SIMUVAC thus becomes a permanent part of the community’s landscape, right alongside consumers in their supermarkets, children in their schools. The tabloid future has come to live in the present. The specter of disaster and evacuation lingers, heralded by “Mylex”-suited SIMUVAC employees.
In terms of manmade disasters resonating in the public mind during this time, America was only six years removed from the Three Mile Island nuclear meltdown, which occurred on March 28, 1979. In one of those historical and pop culture coincidences that sometimes stretch credulity, Three Mile Island occurred fewer than two weeks after the wide release of the film The China Syndrome in American theaters. One of the last of the great 1970s political thrillers and whistleblower narratives, The China Syndrome is about dogged journalists (Jane Fonda and Michael Douglas) and a harried insider (Jack Lemmon) trying to expose the slipshod safety procedures of the owners of a southern California nuclear power plant. Lemmon’s character’s death at the hands of police at the end of the film reminds us of the militarization of local California law enforcement that began with CABLE SPLICER. In another bizarre coincidence, the Three Mile Island incident in Pennsylvania also occurred three days before FEMA was due to begin its operational life by statute (April 1, 1979). Continuing the pattern of fiction anticipating reality, DeLillo’s White Noise was written before, and subsequently released only a few months after, the Union Carbide disaster in Bhopal, India, in December 1984, when industrial byproducts from a pesticide plant were released into the air from a Union Carbide factory, killing nearly 4,000 people and injuring over half a million.
In Thomas Pynchon’s Vineland (1990), his first novel after the epochal Gravity’s Rainbow (1973), the aftermath of 1960s activism is handled with a deft comic touch. The story is set in 1984 and examines how television has made the American public into “Thanatoids,” half-dead “tubefreex” who haunt the edges of the narrative, which dives back and forth between Reagan’s America in 1984 and Reagan’s California in 1968. Within the late ’60s portion of the fractured story, heroine Frenesi Gates is imprisoned in a CABLE SPLICER/GARDEN PLOT-like camp engineered by the antagonist, FBI agent Brock Vond. The relocation camp program that Vond initiates with the help of folks in Washington (“just about to be put in as a rider to what would be the Crime Control Act of 1970 by a not-so-neo-fascist congressman”) is called “PREP,” for “Political Re-Education Program.” Instead of relocation and internment, the PREP camps are meant to convert leftists into double agents using imprisonment and behavioral conditioning, echoing both the conceit of Room 101 at the Ministry of Love in 1984 (1948) and the widely-known series of real-life CIA mind control programs that fell under the umbrella of MKUltra. Vond believes that this political reeducation was well on its way already, as he sees an inherent desire for authority in the ’60s generation: “Brock saw the deep—if he’d allowed himself to feel it, the sometimes touching—need only to stay children forever, safe inside some extended national Family.” This extends into Vond’s overtly sexual relationship with Frenesi, Elektra overtones and all, as well as through the Thanatoids’ own relationship with television.
Pynchon’s statement on the cultural trajectory of hippie-to-yuppie and the deep-seated Boomer desire for power notwithstanding, his characters also explicitly call out the specific elements of REX 84 in the book’s present-day setting of 1984, as Frenesi’s daughter Prairie hangs out with two of her mother’s former comrades as they discuss their fear of government raids:
‘In the olden days we called it the last roundup,’ DL explained. ‘Liked to scare each other with it, thought it was always real enough. The day they’d come and break into your house and put everybody in prison camps. Not fun or sitcom prison camps, more like feedlots where we’d all become official, nonhuman livestock.’
‘You’ve seen camps like this?’ At once there seeped into the cheery space a silence like a stain in the light. Ditzah, at her editing table trembling, seemed to turn her body from what DL would say, to present less of a target, but DL only answered evenly.
‘Yep, I’ve seen ’em, your mom was in one, you’ll recall, but better than us reminiscing and boring you, go to the library sometime and read about it. Nixon had machinery for mass detention all in place and set to go. Reagan’s got it for when he invades Nicaragua. Look it up, check it out.’
Here Pynchon not only links his fictional PREP program to the actual historical Nixon-era plans that are now part of the historical record, but also links Nixon-era internment plans to the Reagan administration’s explicit desire to have camps on hand for social unrest in the face of another foreign war against Communism. Pynchon is clear to state that all of these plans are publicly available, perhaps only in the underground press of the time, but also hinting at the open history of right-wing oppression of left-wing activists. Just go to the library.
Into the 1990s, the REX 84 family of narratives was folded into the mythology of the nascent post-Cold War anti-UN/sovereign citizen/white separatist movement, but it was still being used by left-wing writers as shorthand for the dangers of authority ungoverned by the Constitution. Scottish comic creator Grant Morrison’s seminal series The Invisibles (1994-2000) features several plot points inspired by REX 84. Most notable of these concerns a former NYPD cop-turned-occult-terrorist Lucille Butler (Invisible code name “Boy”). In Boy’s origin issue (The Invisibles, Vol. 1, No. 20, 1996), REX 84 is explicitly called out as an element of the interdimensional Outer Church’s efforts to control humanity and imprison rebels who threaten global control. Boy’s older brother Martin, an NYPD detective, collaborates with the government agents who’ve been cleaning up gang activity, but balks when he finds out about the REX 84 plan. Later, elements of Morrison’s own personal Invisibles mythology interweave with REX 84, as Boy deals with the possibility that she may be an unconscious double or even triple agent thanks to her thirst for revenge over her older brother’s death or detention. As in Pynchon (and Orwell), the internment camp in The Invisibles looms as a place where individuals have their closely-held beliefs burned out of them. Any commentary on War on Terror-era black sites, psy-ops, and “enhanced interrogation” techniques is left to the reader.
Despite the fact that REX 84 and its predecessors and offshoots began and flourished under Republican Presidents as part of an explicit design to silence or even incarcerate left-wing activists and others who would threaten the status quo, it is today most frequently right-wing extremists who espouse conspiracy theories surrounding FEMA camps. It seems that the idea of mass internment, when it is perceived to threaten gun-enthusiastic white people, becomes an imminent national emergency that necessitates taking up arms. Mass relocation and internment have, however, as examined earlier, demonstrably threatened a quite different set of demographics throughout American history: people of color and left-wing activists. That practice continues today.
No matter which side of the political spectrum, the enduring life of REX 84 and related conspiracy narratives in American pop culture is a testament to the seeming alienness of political internment in “the land of the free.” To Americans, the liberators of concentration camps during World War II, the idea of ceding to fascist impulses to imprison and isolate the politically undesirable is a profound psychic wound to the nation’s self-image. But, in reality, Americans acquiesced to all of these plans, even after they were exposed to the public by both journalists and artists. All of them—GARDEN PLOT, REX 84, the George W. Bush administration’s National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive—are real. These documents, these plans, and the ambitions of men like Louis Giuffrida, remain acknowledged and archived by the government, and await rediscovery and reauthorization. If we do not remain vigilant now, if we cede the rightful suspicion of plans such as REX 84 to those on the extreme political margins, then those who resist the autocratic advances of the current administration may be in for much worse than Nixon or Reagan or Bush ever intended.
