Architects Confirm Shopping Malls Will Become FEMA Camps

CSS Offical-New-Logo2


Earlier in the summer of 2015, I was awestruck when I had an epiphany about much architecture had changed on commercial and public buildings. The most striking change came in the form building what clearly looks like guard towers on new strip malls, shopping malls, new schools and this trend even went so far as to include the retrofitting of CLOSED strip malls.

No we have architects who are as concerned as we all are. The allegations of paranoia and unfounded conclusion will fade into the background after these accounts.

From a layman’s perspective, I could not see any justification for addition of guard towers to a malls. I reasoned that the addition of a guard tower structure had to be time consuming and very expensive. When I first published my observations, I was besieged with allegations that I was suffering from extreme paranoia and was imagining all of this. Yet, my readers and listeners responded with dozens of examples of what I was trying to alert the public to in that our public structures were increasingly resembling a prison facility.

Who Are the FEMA Camps For?

Nothing happens in isolation, and in the context of the martial law drill, Jade Helm 15, it was quite clear that DHS and FEMA were preparing for mass detentions in numbers which would greatly exceed the estimated 800 FEMA camps currently in existence. As an aside, do you remember when FEMA was cornered with proof as to the existence of FEMA camps and they said that they would only be used in the event of a mass immigration event due to an external cause? Well, we know this is a lie because we have and still continue to experience mass immigration. Some demographers estimate the number of illegal aliens residing inside the United States is between 30-35 million and this administration continues to allow the inflow to continue, unabated as President Obama keeps pushing for wholesale citizenship. None of these people are ending up in FEMA camps, nor should they. Our government and our corporations want them here. If President Obama and his corporate benefactors did not want them here, they would not be here. Obama’s people are doing a great job keeping the oppressed Syrian Christians, Obama could do the same to any immigrant group. Do not blame the people, blame Obama and the greedy corporations that he is beholding to, but I digress.

Not one illegal alien has been put in a FEMA camp. When one of these people commits a crime, they are typically deported to only enter the country again. Yes, this is how much this administration loves you, the middle class American. The FEMA cover story that FEMA camps were built to house illegal aliens is laughable. So, why are these guard towers being built into architectural genre of our malls and schools?

Architects Speak Out

I have heard from over a dozen architects who all say the same thing; Guard towers built upon shopping malls and schools serve no legitimate purpose. They are costly, they do not add to the aesthetics of the structure so as to attract customers or students and they serve no purpose in relation to the structure that they are attached to. Here are two examples of architects who have contacted me in support of what I have already printed on this topic.

Dear Dave, 

I have been reading your accounts of guard towers being built on various structures around the United States, Canada and even Great Britain. Your concerns echo what many of my colleagues feel as well. I work in various aspects of commercial design and  I work with a team, from other backgrounds in planning and supervising construction of malls. It is pointless to voice our opinion that guard tower structures are a waste of time, space, material and money. If we persisted with this assessment, it is clear that we would be immediately terminated or we would lose contracts.  Dave, although you know my name, please do not release my name or refer to my firm for all the apparent reasons.  Thank you.

When an architectural team designs a mall, they work very hard at having the various structures complement each other. The purpose is to create a functional commercial community as well as a warm, inviting atmosphere where people where let their “guard” down and are willing to spend their money. We want to design structures that sell ease if accessm beauty and comfort. Guard towers do not add to this architectural objective.

When I first raised the question of why so many malls were having EXPENSIVE and utterly useless guard tower structures built on the corners of malls, I was told that it was what the client requested. As I attended many pre-planning and construction meetings, I discovered that representatives of the “client” did want the guard tower structures even though there was never a legitimate explanation offered. I challenged one representative by telling him the structure would substantially drive up costs, served no aesthetic purpose and would draw hard to labor away from the the construction of the mall and delay the completion of the main structures comprising the mall. In this business where time is money and construction completion dates are of a high priority, the insistence of the clients who want “elevated structures” made no sense.

 I was firmly told to drop the subject.

Then one day I was reading one of your articles and you mentioned that Simon Properties, the “biggest owner of malls in North America,” had made a deal with DHS to house people during an emergency. This discovery scared the holy s___ out of me because I realized that you were correct and these malls could quickly become detention facilities…. There is no doubt in my mind.



Hi Dave,

I’ll keep this brief.  I drove by a new Market Basket last week, not too far from my home.  Noticed the guard towers on 2 ends.  I attached the link below to the conceptual drawings.  They are also visible from google earth.  Athol MA, Market Basket.  I design timber homes and some commercial buildings, so I have noticed this trend over the past few years that new buildings have a guard tower feature (emphasis added).  You can probably guess why.  My assumption is massive conditioning for the sleeping public that when they see these entering the camps that they are images of a non threatening nature.  After all, you walk through them all the time to get an overpriced meal right?

Take care!





I  am in possession of several of these emails which all same the same thing: There is no legitimate purpose for a guard tower to be built on a school, a mall and certainly there is no explanation for retrofitting a closed strip mall.

As I said earlier, nothing happens in isolation. In the context of Jade Helm, there is no question that these unusual structures are FEMA camp facilities and in this time of soft martial law and Jade Helm, every American should be concerned.

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you for continuing to post re: detention camps. I believe that if these plans every were to go into active status, it would be your website, as a hub for grassroots reporting, that would be the first to break the news. The advanced warning could save many families from lockup.

    The picture of the mall in Tampa is a stunner and shocking, even to those who might be a naysayer. It speaks to me how asleep Americans are to everything around them. Evil is out in the open now because it knows that most people are asleep and don’t care. It can be more bold, just like Obama is with all that he says and does. He doesn’t care about how his words and actions look anymore, he serves his dark master without a conscience.

    Keep it coming Dave for those of us who are awake and want to
    serve our Lord in these last days. Thank you sir!

    In Isa.14 we see the “king of Babylon” in vs.4 doing the work of setting up Lucifer’s (vs.12-15) NWO. But, that king of end times Babylon with great ” POMP” (as bad as it is now, what would it be with martial law and extended kinghood rule) is brought down to the grave (vs.11).

    That Lucifer inspired king of end times Babylon “made the world as a wilderness (he was a geopolitical wrecking ball) and destroyed the cities” and “OPENED NOT THE HOUSE OF HIS PRISONERS”(vs.17). He is likened to an “ABOMINABLE BRANCH” in vs.19. Concerning his nation we are told in vs.20, “thou hast DESTROYED THY LAND AND SLAIN THY PEOPLE”.

    To any who think we are not oppressed by the globalist banker’s Lucifer inspired leader of destruction—think again. This was written about 728 BC by a prophet of God who is warning us, the people of end times Babylon, at the time Lucifer is thrown down in mid-tribulation (also see Rev.12:9), our leader will be the ABOMINABLE BRANCH whose prisoners will never see the light of day. SO—-PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT DAVE IS DESCRIBING WITH GUARD TOWERS and about Wally World and mall conversions!

    While I agree with a majority of what you post, I have to say at times I get a little confused by other parts. Example would be the first picture in the above article where the caption reads, “Prison fencing and guard tower at Denver public school.” Where is the prison fencing? It’s a 4-5′ chain linked fence. I agree with your premise and rational about what is taking place all over the country in regards to Fema camps and makeshift Fema camps, but sometimes I think your evidence is not really evidence. Thank you for being vigilant in your work and helping all of us realize what is really going on this world! Looking forward to the next article as always!

    Fyi-the megachurch near my house is building a 30 million dollar facility that has a “prayer”tower just like this.

    I would be interested in reading the rest of the architect letters, as a matter of curiosity, what else they have to say. I suggest posting them in the comment section, or at the end of the article.

    “If we persisted with this assessment, it is clear that we would be immediately terminated or we would lose contracts.”
    Better to lose your contracts. Otherwise it will be said about you, “not all whores wear skirts” or worse. There are things more important than money.

    Someone told me earlier this year that the FEMA camps are not to keep people in, but to keep people out. Have you heard such a statement?

    Traveling 6 hours on the I-10 to CA, I must have seen (at least) 8 large malls and/or industrial complexes with towers. Old malls did not have them but ALL the newer malls did. Even the small ones. And those were just the ones I could see from the freeway.

    Once you are aware of what to look for, they are everywhere.

  17. wb August 14, 2015 at 11:03 am

    there has to be a way to get these people to come forward. what we have here is a statement made by a Casey. there is no info presented that proves his argument other what he has written. anyone could send such an email. no records, no company name, nothing. many of these stories are the same, here, at infowars, etc. such charges require proof otherwise the public looks and sees just more paranoia at work. if just one person out there could provide video or papers substantiating these things, the credibility built would do much, otherwise, the left mouth pieces can pick apart the story at will. sooner or later one of those involved will have to come forward. with all the underground building going on surely one construction worker or truck driver could provide something a little more substantial. showing the entrance to a supposed underground tunnel where the pictures stop at or near the entrance does nothing for your case. however, video taken a hundred miles underground at the facility would do wonders for the charges. just saying.

    Dear Mr.Hodges.I would not normally link to this website but the important part is not the article itself but the first two extensive comments.I believe it explains the “phony war”talk we are all being subjected too & why you have so many Russian soldiers in your land.Deal with it as you see fit.

    Hey Dave….greetings from Amarillo. Was informed today that beginning next week ; 19th I think, Pantex will begin “drills” and not to think anything of the possible military vehicle sightings which may be present in our area. Nothing to see here! Have a great weekend my friend.

  22. Jay Warren Clark August 14, 2015 at 2:37 pm

    Dave: Why no specs on what these structures will support and how they are designed and built. This seem like an odd omission from architects. what do you think? JWC

  23. Incognito August 14, 2015 at 2:57 pm

    Why show a photo of the Cheesecake Factory Restaurant? It’s not a strip mall; that does not look like a tower. The other photos above had tower like structures.

    Dave I’ve been watching an elementary school remodel in the city of Rochester that now comes with its very own guard tower. This tower is not able to be seen driving by on South Ave. You can only see the tower from the elevated floors from Highland hospital which sits directly across the street. Unfortunately every hospital employee I’ve talked to about it looks at me like I have 3 eyes. Another observation the NY national guard vehicle repair facility kiddie cornered from my work has had a huge spike in military vehicle service in the past few weeks. God bless and be a beacon of light and hope to others.

    My opinion to this paragraph :

    “United States is between 30-35 million and this administration continues to allow the inflow to continue, unabated as President Obama keeps pushing for wholesale citizenship. None of these people are ending up in FEMA camps, nor should they. Our government and our corporations want them here. If President Obama and his corporate benefactors did not want them here, they would not be here.”

    A friend one day was talking to me about all these illegals here in America. He believes the reason why they are being allowed to stay here is because they are going to replace all those who end up in the concentration death camps a.k.a. FEMA camps.

    Dave, if you’re interested, I have a sharp home video of two black helicopters flying low over my house today south of Denver. Can you tell me how best to get that video clip to you? I’m not familiar with how that’s done. I can crop it or change the format if necessary. Right now it’s a 30.4MB .mov file (Quicktime).

    This has been a daily occurrence for the last three days. I expect they’re headed to/from Ft. Carson or the A.F. Academy.

    Since the beginning of summer at least, I’ve noticed after every rain,a soapy substance like what you would see from a carwash if your car wasn’t properly rinsed.It is everywhere. Main roads,side roads, parking lots and puddles in my own driveway.I t doesn’t matter if it is a prolonged rain or a brief shower. I’ve also noticed very strange weather. Strange lightning patterns and cloud formations. The clouds almost appear painted in the sky over a certain area like a canopy.
    The lightning, is not typical heat lightning ,it is almost like a giant strobe light.But very rarely thunder.

    Helicopters constantly. Last wknd,there were 4 that flew over where I was working and in the distance of about 40 miles my friend saw 8.One being a Chinook I believe it’s called. It was hovering over anewly built GM plant.It had a rope dangling from it.

    I have seen several of these Chinooks over the last few wks flying over my home and surrounding area. They have been heading north.

    I have a couple pictures of the helicopters but the quality is too poor to post. But this is all things I have seen firsthand not rumors.
    Since winter,the helicopters have been flying over during all times of day and night.
    The other helicopters of various looks are flying different directions but with frequency.
    The Chinook all head North.

    The guard towers would be useless unless they get the guns from the public. Anyone with a 7.62mm could turn it and anyone inside into a swiss cheese. Now – if those towers are being reinforced with armor then I would say you are not paranoid.
    No matter what happens there are always those looking to take over. Suppose Yosemite blew as a super volcano. The mall could be used for good and the towers could be used to address those inside. So, you can stay in the middle ages in which case you lose against a tyrant gov or go with modern times and accept what is happening with the idea that we need to be sure the 2nd amendment stays intact because it is the only thing keeping us from becoming subjects of the likes of O-liar or any of the other narcissistic sociopaths that strive to rise in our government.
