Plan To Establish Government Operated Slave Labor Camps In The US

Earlier this week, we ran a story on the $385 million contract to Halliburton to build detainment facilities on domestic US military bases for an emergency influx of immigrants; to support the rapid development of new programs; in the event of other emergencies, such as natural disaster. This was an update to previous stories throughout the year on the same plan.

In several stories over the last month, we've reviewed the "Military Commissions Act of 2006", which effectively does away with Habeas Corpus. If you are considered to be an enemy of the state, through action or otherwise, you can and will be thrown in prison. Lets not forget that the pseudo-trial that you may receive will have evidence of your own confessions given up during torture. Well, not torture by the new definition. You'll keep most of your limbs, and you may survive, but you'll be living a whole new life for what you were forced to say.

Now US Army Regulation 210-35 "Civilian Inmate Labor Program" been brought to our attention. Who needs to pay for labor, when you can use the prison population for your slave labor.

Lets review.

Anyone can be arrested for pretty much anything. Charges are optional, as long as you can be considered to be against the state. Having a dissenting opinion is definately fair game.

Anyone can be thrown in prison, without trial or even a lawyer to advise them.

One an individual is in prison, they are fair game to be sent off to the "Civilian Inmate Labor Program" camps.

For those who are unfamiliar with history, lets point out a few real winning examples of how this was done in the past.

Yesterday I encountered a troubling article on whatreallyhappened.com:
We're All Prisoners, Now: US Citizens to be Required "Clearance" to Leave USA
 http://nestmannblog.sovereignsociety.com/2006/10/were_all_prison.html

I feel this gives weight to a recent post of mine:

"Is the US preparing for a mass political exodus?"
 http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2006/09/346724.shtml

Frankly, though, I'm not sure these guys have the power to pull this off (Suddenly turn the US into the Soviet Union complete with Iron Curtain and openly fascist regime). I think they are desperate enough to try anything at this point, though -- the wheels are coming off the wagon. One thing's for sure, we're in for something completely new and different, and it's coming soon!

One might be comforted to remember the fizzled Soviet coup of 1990. Hard-line communists kidnapped Gorbachev and tried to re-establish the old iron-fisted Stalinist order, the people (at first complacent and bewildered) rose up, and the soldiers refused to shoot their own neighbors.
