I do know about FEMA. While working in the Fire Dept the retired chief went to work for them. Found out after a while that due to the type of work we did and it being a kinda paramilitary operation we could be directed to work for FEMA. Knowing some of the powers that were in the thing..I could see a LOT of problems in the future..and it has come to pass..

Yep, you get it. Powers to keep order after a natural disaster that do not necessarily require a natural disaster to pull the trigger and to my knowledge are not restricted to a specific area of a disaster. All one needs to do is watch the inspectors and adjusters work and it is very obvious they are not interested in cooperation with state, county or city at their lower levels of authority.

I got myself caught, by accident, between the State and FEMA one time in 2005 and I decided in an instant I did not want any part of that. But, in that process I learned all I wanted to learn, about FEMA and its authority.

FEMA..yep. I remember dealing with the FBI a few times. They were...um...difficult..yep right word..Difficult. Dealt with the Secret Service...and while very serious about their work..not overly bossy.. Some of the security details protecting other impotent people are pretty pushy though..especially the French and middle Eastern security people..Israelis too. Remember once that the whole contingent of the King of Kuwait shoulda had messy drawers after he kinda sorta almost messed up a landing in one of his airliners..a 707 if I remember right.. I Thought all of the gals in his harem needed a LONG hot bath and a nice shopping spree afterwards. Well lets put it this way..If'n I was on that plane..I'd a thought we were crashin.. or being shot at. But you do have to understand..the King owned the airlines and all them people too. Actually I have bad feelings about the role of HS in this country especially in the coming years

Red face

The current misadministration, criminal cabal that they are, will never come clean about why they need so much ammo, guns, vehicles, etc. Just remember what the pretender in the Whitehouse said awhile back about about wanting his own 'civilian defense force' just as well equipped and funded as the US Military......
This is happening NOW.

Skeet, you echo the same thoughts as many of us. My 'spidey sense' has been jangling for over four years now...... 'something' is in the wind.
