FEMA , the Red Cross, and the department of homeland security are now using taxpayer money to educate children in public schools about ‘getting ready for disaster’. But why would government agencies hold interest in this? Is it because they want schools to be safer, or because they want citizens to flee to FEMA camps in a time of crisis?
A disaster that very well could be orchestrated by a government agency, one might add. So what are these ‘disaster relief’ camps like? A quick google search for ‘FEMA camps’ would turn up thousands of results. Yet contrary to what one may think, leaving these camps may not be voluntary.
In fact, a leaked document signed by Joyce E. Morrow (administrative assistant to the secretary of the army) suggests that disaster relief camps may actually be military internment camps. The document is titled ‘internment and resettlement operations’ , and it describes these camps in great detail, stating that ‘civil support is the department of defense support to civil authorities for domestic emergencies. Civil support includes operations that address the consequences of natural or man-made disasters, accidents, terrorist attacks, and incidents in the U.S.’ .
To sum it up, this leaked document confirms plans by the department of defense to operate internment prison camps for citizens during a crisis . But why would they need a crisis to imprison large amounts of people, and why would they imprison large amounts of people in the first place? But the real question is, do these prison camps tie in with FEMA?
And if so, is FEMA preparing children in public schools to accept going to an internment camp if there is a disaster? Perhaps the military internment camps to be used for disasters, and the FEMA camps to be used in times of crisis, are unrelated. But given the recent NDAA , allowing for the legal indefinite detainment of American citizens, and the political weather, it seems this isn’t such a far out possibility. It isn’t a nice issue to think about, but spreading the word about the possibility of an American holocaust would be arguably the most effective way to stop such an event.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden – Three nights of violent rioting by immigrant youth in the suburbs here have seen dozens of cars burned, multiple police officers injured, numerous windows shattered, schools set ablaze and more.
The riots began on Sunday in Husby, just outside of the capital, where about 80 percent of the population is either first or second generation immigrants. Most of them come from largely Muslim countries like Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and Somalia.
Chaos quickly spread on Monday and Tuesday, with authorities reporting that at least six areas of Stockholm were affected by rioting and violence. A police station was also attacked.
Roving youth gangs threw Molotov cocktails and rocks at first responders trying to rein in the disorder and clean up the mess.
By early Wednesday, even more vehicles and buildings were burned out as first responders worked to put out the flames.
It was the worst turmoil experienced by Sweden in years, with hundreds of youth participating in the riots. Police say at least 15 have been arrested so far.
Calls for peace
Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt called for an immediate end to the violence while admitting that it may go on for some time.
“We have groups of young men who think that that they can and should change society with violence,” Reinfeldt said, urging parents and adults to help restore order.
“Let’s be clear: This is not okay,” he added. “We cannot be ruled by violence.”
The prime minister, who belongs to what Swedes consider to be the “center-right” Moderate Party, said Husby residents “must get their neighborhood back.”
Despite the calls for calm, however, violence continued into the night.
As the riots raged, the sudden outbreak of violence and chaos in normally peaceful Sweden – reportedly sparked by police shooting an elderly man wielding a large knife on May 13 – led to an intense debate about the underlying causes.
Not enough welfare?
Unsurprisingly, advocates of bigger government claimed not enough public money was being spent on various social causes – schools, jobs, training, social services, welfare and more.
More than a few commentators and far-left politicians tried to link the violence to slight reductions in the size and scope of Sweden’s welfare state – one of the world’s most expansive.
Some rioters quoted in media reports made similar claims, while others alleged that the violence was a response to “police brutality” or “structural racism.”
“We see a society that is becoming increasingly divided and where the gaps, both socially and economically, are becoming larger,” said co-founder Rami Al-Khamisi with the group Megafonen, which purports to represent suburbs and minorities.
“And the people out here are being hit the hardest,” he added. “We have institutional racism.”
Backlash against immigrants
Others in Sweden lashed out at immigrants and massive immigration in general, saying the riots illustrated the “failure of multiculturalism” and the problems with allowing too many foreigners in without a real plan.
As the debate over immigration raged, the Sweden Democrats party, which seeks to implement broad restrictions on further immigration, has now become the third largest political party based on recent polls.
About 15 percent of the people in Sweden were born in other countries, and the numbers are growing.
In certain areas of the country, which have become virtual “no-go” zones for native Swedes, almost the entire population is either foreign or born to immigrant parents.
While the Sweden Democrats were largely ostracized and demonized by state-funded media even in recent years, last election saw the controversial party’s first entrance to Parliament.
With general elections set for next year, analysts and pollsters expect the Sweden Democrats to see major gains – especially in the current economic and social climate.
Much of the native Swedish population is proud of the openness and tolerance in accepting foreigners, but as immigration continues unabated, significant segments of society are having second thoughts.
Many immigrants also adapt to Sweden and its culture, but large areas in major cities dominated by foreigners have become known as “ghettos” where the people refuse to assimilate.
It was not always that way, however.
In a 1965 speech to parliament following violent race riots in America, then-Swedish Prime Minister Tage Erlander celebrated Sweden’s uniformity.
“We Swedes live in a so infinitely happier situation,” he reportedly told lawmakers in remarks that have once again entered the immigration debate. “The population in our country is homogeneous, not just according to race but also in many other aspects.”
Integration of Immigrants
Experts on the integration of immigrants into Swedish society, meanwhile, pointed to the welfare state itself as one of the problems contributing to the chaos.
Nima Sanandaji, a Swedish author of Kurdish-Iranian origin who has published two books on the subject, told WND that the government has played a role in fomenting the problem – but not in the way members of the Left Party and other supporters of a large welfare state claim.
“A common explanation given in Sweden is that the riots are due to social exclusion, and that the correct measure is to aim more public funding to the parts of Sweden where riots are occurring,” he explained.
“But in fact, Sweden has a massive welfare system, aimed at the same segments at society – and it is even partially to blame since so much welfare dependency has been created,” Sanandaji said.
There is, of course, a strong link between poverty and the riots, he continued.
“But one has to understand the concept of poverty in modern societies, where every citizen is granted publicly funded health care, schooling, higher education as well as various financial supports. Why does poverty remain in such a society?
“The answer, formulated well by Nobel laureate Robert Fogel, is that much of modern poverty is spiritual, or social if you will,” Sanandaji continued.
“If you grow up in an environment where most adults are supported by welfare rather than work, in a system where high taxes and rigid labor regulations hinder entrance in the labor market and where much of the reward for success through hard work is taxed away, you are likely to have weak working norms,” he added.
Sanandaji said that people who grow up in immigrant-dominated neighborhoods where the riots normally occur tend to go to public schools “that fail them.”
They also live in environments where young people can earn more respect by ditching school or joining a gang than doing well on math tests, he added.
“Politics is definitely to blame,” the integration expert told WND.
Still, Sanandaji noted that it is “far from impossible” to succeed in Sweden, regardless of one’s background.
He recently wrote a book about Iranian immigrants in Sweden, who constitute close to one percent of the population. Arriving mainly during the 1980s, they were, for the most part at least, highly motivated and very well educated.
“But most were trapped in welfare dependency,” Sanandaji said, citing a study showing that as late as 1999 fully one third of adult Iranian immigrants lived solely on welfare while another third had some income but was primarily supported by public handouts.
“Only the remaining one third mainly supported themselves, often with jobs far below their level of education,” he continued.
Despite cultural norms that encourage careers in medicine or engineering, most young Iranians in Sweden today grew up in families supported by welfare.
In his 2012 book “From Poverty to Success,” Sanandaji showed that 45 percent of Swedes started higher education by the age of 25, compared to 37 percent of immigrants generally and just 16 percent of Somalis.
Among Iranians, however, the number is closer to 60 percent, he said.
“So what does this teach us? The rigid Swedish system did not allow the first generation of Iranians, the same group that has achieved much success in countries such as Canada and the UK, to realize their potential,” Sanandaji said.
“But the strong norms that survived welfare dependency make it possible for the young generation to succeed – often by physically moving away from the neighborhoods where the cars are burned.
“It is possible to succeed in the Swedish welfare state,” he concluded. “But the process might take a generation, since entering the system through business ownership and work is made difficult by the high taxes, the rigid labor regulations and the generous public handouts.”
While Sanandaji sees very big government as a major obstacle for immigrants, Swedes – even on the “right” – generally support the welfare state.
The rest of Europe
The riots in Stockholm this week follow much larger and more devastating unrest in recent years seen in major European cities like London and Paris. In London, a horrific case developed Wednesday where two knife-wielding attackers allegedly beheaded a soldier.
Both areas saw raging violence as immigrant youth, primarily Muslim, marauded through the streets wreaking havoc.
Countries like Greece and Spain, meanwhile, have also witnessed dramatic riots in recent years.
However, in those nations the turmoil was primarily fueled by the economic crisis, from which Sweden has largely been spared so far.
Analysts say similar economic and demographic conditions in the United States could eventually lead to problems as well, and America has already seen more than a few major, deadly riots.

(NBC News) A former manager at the IRS Cincinnati office at the center of the controversy over the targeting of conservative political organizations seeking tax-exempt status tells NBC News she doesn’t think low-level employees acted on their own in flagging them for further scrutiny.
But she also said that in her time at the IRS she has never known politics or partisan motivations to play any role in the office’s work, and doesn’t think it did in this case.
Bonnie Esrig, a 38-year IRS veteran, worked as an area manager in the Determinations Unit of the IRS’ Exempt Organizations department in 2011 and 2012.
(Breitbart) An investigation by Cincinnati Fox 19 reporter Ben Swann finds that Obama Administration claims that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeting of conservative groups was the work of two “rogue” low-level employees in Cincinnati, Ohio, strain credulity and are “falling apart.”
Swann reports that so far six IRS agents working out of the Cincinnati office—which is the central hub for processing tax-exempt applications—have been identified as sending scrutinizing letters to conservative groups. These include …
(Weekly Standard) Perhaps no other IRS official is more intimately associated with the tax agency’s growing scandal than Lois Lerner, director of the IRS’s Exempt Organizations Division. Since admitting the IRS harassed hundreds of conservative and Tea Party groups for over two years, Lerner has been criticized for a number of untruths—including the revelation that she apparently lied about planting a question at an American Bar Association conference where she first publicly acknowledged IRS misconduct.
Still, Lerner has her defenders in the government and the media. Shortly after the scandal broke, The Daily Beast published an article headlined “IRS Scandal’s Central Figure, Lois Lerner, Described as ‘Apolitical.’” Insisting Lerner, and the IRS more broadly, were not not politically motivated has been a central contention of those trying to minimize the impact of the scandal.
The trouble with this defense is that, prior to joining the IRS, Lerner’s tenure as head of the Enforcement Office at the Federal Election Commission (FEC) was marked by what appears to be politically motivated harassment of conservative groups.
(McClatchy News Service) The Republican National Committee Wednesday formally requested a series of documents related to the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups.
The request, filed under the federal Freedom of Information Act, seeks a host of data, including “any and all documents and correspondence” between Treasury officials and the White House from January 1, 2010 and Monday. The documents would include terms like tea party and patriot.
The RNC also wants documents related to “be on the lookout criteria” the IRS used.
(Beef Magazine) When it comes to business, sometimes it’s not what you know, but who you know. The Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS) appears to have a powerful friend within the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). It’s Lois Lerner, who serves as director of the in the IRS Exempt Organizations Division, and is also a proud member and supporter of HSUS.
Lerner has been a popular name in the headlines lately, after a press conference where she confessed, “I’m not good at math.” Wait, an IRS employee is bad at math? Does that make sense?
The press conference was held to address the IRS admission that it inappropriately targeted conservative groups seeking non-profit status from the agency. Lerner was unable to answer questions about political bias behind the targeting of these groups, but the IRS is admitting that such abuse has been occurring.
(CNS News) What did the White House know about the IRS targeting conservative groups and when did it know it?
Crucial evidence needed to develop an accurate answer to that question would include the records of any communications that went back and forth between the IRS and the White House on the topic.
In a May 14 letter signed by Chairman Dave Camp and Ranking Member Sander Levin, the House Ways and Means Committee demanded precisely those records from the IRS. In the same letter, the committee also demanded the records of any communications between IRS and the Treasury on the matter, plus other information and records that would help the committee understand the facts about IRS actions that subjected to heightened scrutiny conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.
