The last century was drenched in blood, as unchecked governments wreaked havoc upon peaceful peoples through war and genocide. This should have taught us valuable lessons about where humankind went wrong. It should have shown us that no nation is exempt from electing a genocidal maniac to lead (especially considering the fact that Adolf Hitler was Time Magazine’s Man of the Year in 1939—the world thought that the fellow was a real straight shooter). Sadly, we were wrong then, and we’re still making the same mistakes today.
Today’s America is no different when it comes to the human condition and our unfortunate capacity to blindly empower evil people. So, when the U.S. government moves into action using the same modus operandi as previous governments that had engaged in genocide in the last century, it might be a smart idea for liberty lovers pay close attention to the actions of the powers-that-be.
One such questionable action taken under the Obama administration is the creation of the FEMA Corps. Essentially, the FEMA Corps is a body of youth (ages eighteen to twenty-four) that are primarily concerned with disaster relief efforts and community service – quite admirable at face value. The FEMA Corps is under the President’s direct control, since FEMA is a White House department and does not answer to elected lawmakers. This civilian force has many eerie similarities to something that we’ve seen before. An article from Tony Oliva of Gun Owners of America gives us a brief review of the past:
As a paramilitary organization, the Hitler Youth could be and were used as an armed auxiliary force to perform a variety of duties such as being active in fire brigades and assisting with recovery efforts from natural disasters and later Allied bombings. The Hitler Youth also assisted in such organizations as the Reich Postal Service, fire services, Reich radio service and served among anti-aircraft defense crews.
Well, that doesn’t seem so bad, right? These kids in the Hitler Youth were used to bring relief in the event of disasters and foreign attack. The FEMA Corps just so happens to be a force that is used in the exact same way.
Also, both groups are comprised of highly impressionable youth, which have a tendency to fawn after father-figure leaders. Considering the fact that Barack Obama won the youth vote by 67 percent in the November 2012 election, it’s easy to see that youngsters like the guy. And an impressionable army that acts without question can be quite useful in the hands of a tyrant.
But the why do we jump to the idea that the FEMA Corps is anything other than a benevolent community service organization? The controversy surrounding the FEMA Corps arises from Barack Obama’s speech in 2008:
We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.
The belief is that the FEMA Corps is this paramilitary civilian force. However, the FEMA Corps we are seeing today is completely unarmed, just like the Hitler Youth. The common misconception among patriot thinkers is the idea that such a paramilitary civilian force must have firearms in order to be used as a tool for tyrannical action and martial law against the law-abiding citizenry of the U.S. They cite the news reports, which shed light on the fact that several federal government bureaucracies have recently bought billions of hollow-point rounds. Once such bureaucracy is the Social Security Agency, as reported on Infowars.com:
A solicitation posted by the SSA on the FedBizOpps website asks for contractors to supply 174,000 rounds of “.357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition.”
This report may not have much to do with the FEMA Corps, but it does matter in the grand scheme. We will revisit this in a bit.
Now, to make sense of what might be happening here, one must have a conceptual understanding of military logistics. Folks who have experience in the armed forces understand that very few soldiers actually ever experience the war on the front lines. A military is a giant organism, which does more than just fire bullets and missiles at the enemy. A military must run on logistics, which means that it must carry out other tasks in order to function properly.
During a potential armed conflict within the U.S., the federal government’s military (or UN “peacekeeping forces,” for that matter) are going to be bogged down just trying to keep federal or UN control intact. Between rampant crime problems, refugee dispersal, civilian insurgency, rogue faction military resistance, and even the possibility of foreign aggressors, they are going to need all the logistical support they can get. This is where the President’s paramilitary civilian force comes into play.
Simply put, having this force not only provides the federal government with a pool of willing draftees, but it also allows the government to use these kids for unarmed logistical support. Also, they would be terribly useful for deep undercover intelligence work (i.e., ratting on the townsfolk). This was one of the most infamous functions of the Hitler Youth, and we are watching this same scheme unfold before our eyes yet again, less than one century later.
Here’s where things get interesting: many of the U.S. government bureaucracies that are buying up hollow-point rounds don’t employ armed, trained personnel. To put it simply, the Social Security Administration has absolutely no use for 174,000 rounds, as it doesn’t do any policing and it doesn’t have any kind of military function. So why do they actually need these rounds?
One prevalent theory comes from an understanding about what the U.S. government is currently doing in the Middle East. Essentially, the reason why certain factions with special U.S. backing take power when a Middle Eastern regime falls (Egypt) is because U.S. intelligence was already supplying them with arms and ammunition. The New York Times divulges a glimpse of this fact (while glossing over the important parts, courtesy of the mainstream media):
A small number of C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey, helping allies decide which Syrian opposition fighters across the border will receive arms to fight the Syrian government, according to American officials and Arab intelligence officers.
So, why does the Social Security Administration need 174,000 rounds? It could be that they don’t intend to fire them. No, they intend to supply the faction that offers the U.S. government the most strategic opportunity.
But, how will the powers-that-be disperse the ammunition to their favored faction? Well, that sounds like a job for the FEMA Corps.
The important lesson to take from this is a simple understanding: the government is obviously preparing for some kind of armed conflict or cataclysmic event. But, rather than making preparations to keep Americans safe and free, their actions indicate that this event will be their golden opportunity to erect tyranny in the Home of the Brave. It happened before in Germany, and it can happen again in America.
The best defense against such a scheme is a strong family that teaches the little tikes about the blessings of freedom and law. Only then, will they see through the devices of the “father leader,” calling the scheme for what it truly is: a lie from just another power-hungry crook.
