You Can Lead a Sheep to Knowledge, but You Can’t Make Them Think

Most of you know the look you get when you honestly try and convince a member of the “Sheeple Nation” that America is on life support and that tens of millions are in grave danger.  Along these lines, I was recently speaking with a friend of mine from Tennessee and began to point out how bad things in this country have become. Inevitably, the discussion began to center around the subject of unwarranted detention centers called FEMA Camps. My friend rolled his eyes and repeated the national anthem of all sheep, “I didn’t know you were one of them conspiracy theorists.” He couldn’t hold back the laughter.

I was not deterred, because I was at home and I had my evidence and I thought the evidence was irrefutable. Most of you could write the following paragraphs.

I asked my friend if he knew that American citizens for any reason, or for no reason whatsoever could be detained under the NDAA and sent to a FEMA Camp? He said that the government would never use this law against American citizens. Then I showed him a leaked document in which KBR was telling its subcontractors to be prepared within 72 hours of notification to provide essential services to FEMA camps such as the installation of barbwire, blockades, personnel, food, water and sanitation services. I published this notice 18 months ago and one of my readers, Richard Firth, forwarded an email he sent to the document’s listed KBR official, Bob Seifert, and asked him for an explanation which could  justify the fact that KBR document was informing subcontractors to get ready to man the camps. Surely, I thought this would convince my friend. Below is the email exchange between Wirth and Siefert.

Subject: Level with Public about FEMA camps

Dear Mr. Siefert:

I am given to understand that KBR, a subsidiary of Halliburton, is in the process of activating the FEMA camps according to a leaked memo. I and many others would like to know why these camps are being activated?

I look forward to your response.

Sincerely- Richard W. Firth

Mr. Siefert wasted no time in answering Mr. Firth’s concerns as he provided a hastily prepared same day response.

Dear Mr. Firth,

Thank you for asking about the truth concerning our search for subcontractors. First, KBR is not a subsidiary of Halliburton, and hasn’t been since April of 2007. KBR intends to respond to an upcoming Request for Proposal. FEMA is looking for companies that can set up temporary camps to house First Responders to natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, tornados, floods, etc. The services included in the KBR request for information are ones we cannot provide ourselves and will need companies who can react quickly enough to meet the FEMA goal of having a place for their responders to stay within 72 hours of a call up. The camps will be temporary in nature, and nothing is being “activated”. FEMA is trying to be proactive in preparing for timely responses if emergency responses are required. I hope this answers your question.


Bob Siefert
Manager – Small Business

To summarize, KBR’s Siefert asserts that (1) the camps are temporary; (2) the camps are only being constructed for first responders who will be used in anticipated future natural disasters; and (3) the existing FEMA camps are not being activated.

Often in life, there is the stated reason for performing some action and then there is the real reason. Below are some key provisions which are part of the impetus for activating the FEMA camps which are contained in the Siefert KBR memo (http://static.infowars.com/2011/12/i/general/kbr-doc.pdf ).

“The Continental US will be broken up into five regions as indicated in the map below Services” will be required in each State within each region.” (Author’s note) Interestingly, the South was also broken up into five military districts during the military occupation of the South during the Reconstruction Era following the Civil War.

“(Contractors will) Establish services listed below within 72 hours for initial set-up and respond within 24 hours for incremental services. This is a CONTINGENCY PROJECT and it should be stressed that lead times will be short with critical requirements due to the nature of emergency responses. Subcontractors must be flexible and able to handle multiple, shifting priorities in an emergency environment.”

Additionally, the Siefert memo disturbingly calls for the installation of fencing and wire used for large scale detention of prisoners.

“Subcontractors will mobilize, transport, erect, install and demobilize temporary fencing, barricades, and associated equipment according to federal, state and local laws, codes and manufacturer installation instructions. The Subcontractor shall be able to mobilize and deploy key personnel(s) within four (4) hours of NTP to meet with KBR Site Manager at the Responder Support Camp (RSC) site in order to finalize the site design plan and acquire site specific design requirements and layout. Number of linear footage:

“Approximately 2,300LF for a 301 person camp after 36 hours of NTP”

“Approximately 3,600LF for 1,000 person camp after 72 hours of NTP”

This sounds like FEMA Camp activation to me.

When a reasonable person compares Siefert’s original memo to his response to Mr. Firth’s inquiry, the latter is clearly a poorly and hastily orchestrated version of damage control because his original leaked memo was never meant to see the light of day. The KBR memo called for barricades, barbwire, food, water, sanitation, guards, etc. This is the material that prisons are made of, not temporary housing for first responders as Seifert alleges. Hastily staffed FEMA camp personnel would also fit the definition of first responders in the advent of widespread civil insurrection following something like a massive false flag or a looming currency collapse.


 More Proof

I showed my friend more proof by breaking out the CBS News reported on November 10, 2012, that FEMA camps are in place and being used to house victims of super storm Sandy.

I subsequently told him I had video and photos as the FEMA shelter camp taped in the accompanying video link is home for victims of Sandy and is located in Oceanport, New Jersey. This camp was located on 40 acres of emergency housing and was located in the parking lot of a race track. The camp was complete with hot meals and hot showers. The CBS report interviews a representative of FEMA who sells the camp as a refuge for first responders to the storm and then at the end of the interview, as an afterthought, acknowledges that 200+ storm victims also live there now with more showing up every day.

Reporters are not permitted to enter the FEMA facility because the “residents” did not want to be disturbed.

The Heavy Artillery

Then I started breaking out the heavy artillery in which I had him watch the now famous Jesse Ventura FEMA Camp episode which upset DHS so much that they forced TruTV banned its owned episode costing itself over 3 million dollars in advertising revenue based upon multiple replays it had planned for this episode. I showed my friend the following clip and told him to take note how these facilities have razor wire facing in which would be designed to keep people in.

Advertisement for FEMA Camp Guards

I showed him  more proof that the FEMA camps are being activated and very soon they will be staffed by 100,000 intern specialists  currently being recruited by the Army as included in this ad  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dkkbsy5QHEg and http://therealnewsjournal.com/?p=9426 ).

 Prior Program Trumps Documentation Every Time

He then asked me why would the establishment be preparing to illegally incarcerate millions of innocent people? I gladly broke out my handy-dandy copy of the MIAC Report in which the American Stasi, Homeland Security, listed Ron Paul supporters, Bible believing Christians, Libertarians, gun owners, Constitutionalists and veterans as domestic, “home-grown” terrorists. He was a veteran, surely that would sway him. He just looked at me with that glazed look that we know all to well.

The Final Curtain

I handed him an article I wrote about four years ago in which I featured depopulation quotes from prominent members of the establishment. I asked him to consider the following three quotes from some noteworthy globalists who are some of the puppeteers behind the coming abuse of the American people.

“The elderly are useless eaters”

Dr. Henry Kissinger

“A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”

Ted Turner, in an interview with Audubon magazine

No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.”

David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations

I won all the debating points. And I was sure that I had won over a convert and an ally. However, a more normal appearing gaze returned to my friend as stood up and said thanks but he had to go do some yard work. As he was leaving, I showed Sherrie Wilcox’s photo of FEMA coffins and asked him who could need this many coffins? He literally sprinted out the door.

 You Can Lead a Sheep To Knowledge, but You Can’t Make Them Think

This is is a prime example of why America is finished. Although we need to continue with our duty in identifying tyranny when as it occurs, the more awake of our flock need to begin to seriously focus on adaptation and survival.

    I’ve almost given up on telling people. They would rather watch Dancing With Dr Phil Of Crap than hear the truth. The truth is painful, but sleep is not. Our forefathers said it was up to us, the people, to keep things in line. Well most of the people just want “free” stuff and vote for who will give the most. They’ve been bought out every single time with bigger and more stuff not realizing the true price to actually be paid. I often look at the people around me and know that these people couldn’t handle a sliver. Most will die quickly because of shear panic. I applaud people like yourself who continue to spread the truth even though it falls on deaf ears. I’m starting to fall back into the shadows and just concern myself with my family. For those of you who haven’t began preparing, I’d suggest the very first thing you do is get right with the Lord. When it all it’s the fan, you’ll want to be free of your sins because no matter what or how you’ve prepared physically and mentally you could still be killed quickly by idiots. God bless all of you who are awake!

    Dave, thank you for all of your past postings. You are doing a greatly needed service by waking up (some of) those in need of guidance.

    Your critique Mr. Kissinger tells me that YOU are a useless eater, or have you found the fountain of youth? Do you honestly have no idea what lies in store for you in the not too distant future.

    Mr Turner: You would do all humanity a tremendous service by volunteering to be the first beheaded. You, like the above, will surely be below, but I am judging. I’ll leave that to your soon coming King. (not from below)

    Mr Spangler: After reading your “comment” above, you are as deceived as the morons above. Enjoy your blasphemy while you can. You will have eternity to worship your god in the lake, lest ye repent.

    Your friend is a classic example of the majority of Americans, TPTB know this, which is why we have full frontal treason in this country, criminals like Holder, Feinstein, Obama, wall street bankers all are free to continue their wickedness. The sheep refuse to even TRY and process the fact that the USA is DONE. Now, when SHTF, your friend and every other poor slob like him will be banging down your door looking for you to save them.

    Also, that is why the military cannot be counted on to “save America”, most veterans I know will fight against the anti-2nd amendment conspiracy, but will not at all acknowledge Fema Camps, the intentional Gulf Oil spill, GMOs or even Bradley Manning or Edward Snowden.

    You might have other Americans marching against Monsanto and GMOs, but ignore Illegal Immigration….. Americans are not unified against ALL Conspiracies, but only pick and choose a few “here and there” to stand against. Which is impractical and reaps 0 results (in the long term), again which is why traitors like Oliver North get paid to make graduation speeches at military academies and has his own cable show. (This basstard of course, having been instrumental with Rex 84)

    Having compassion for the sheep is pointless now I feel, soon unfortunately, it may be time to stomp on the fingers of these same Sheeple as they cling to the sides of the “Lifeboats” of the few who are awake……….

    Notwithstanding its factual basis, there is too deep a wave of pessimism in this discussion. The applicable principle should be: “Porro si paulatim idem populus depravatus habeat venale suffragium et regimen flagitiosis sceleratisque committat recte adimitur tali populo potestas dandi honores et ad paucorum bonorum redit arbitrium.” Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae, Prima Secundae, Quaestio 97, De mutatione legum, Articulus I, Respondeo. Or, as the Marines were wont to say, “We are looking for a few good men” … and that “few” will be enough.

    MY brother ,and a few of his friends WATCHED as they hauled box after box of ammo containers up into the guard towers and mounted very large machine guns in the towers,(2 guns in every tower) at the fema death camp in LEWISTON ,ID,they watched trucks bring in supplies all day long,and this was 2 months ago………….he said they hauled at least 100 boxs of ammo into every tower,SO, when you go to rescue your family who were kidnapped by FEMA,remember they got a lot of ammo and some great guns..happy hunting kids………..and don’t believe anything the whores at fema say,remember they are ALL LIEING WHORES AT FEMA,ALL OF THEM,and their ALL GUILTY OF TREASON………….

    Many Americans believe – as a core belief, that the government loves them and only wants to take care of them so they are happy and live good lives. That is really hard to break through.

  19. SAH August 3, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    How can people ignore that the political elites are running this country into the ground? When they push the people too far (history tells us they will) they’ll go into offense mode and start imprisoning anyone who gets in their way. NDA allows military arrest without habeas corpus and FEMA camps will be for detaining the arrested masses. It’s all in place, and people are ignoring it.
