An initial welcome from the editor of the Vision Report Watch.
4 PROJECT MEGIDDO
Can an infamous FBI Project reveal clues as to how the US government would operate during a future national crisis?
10 THE EXTERNAL THREAT
11 THE HR 645 BILL
The HR 645 Bill calls for the establishment of six national emergency centers in major regions across the US to be located on existing military installations.
13 US WORLDWIDE THREAT ASSESSMENT
On February 4, 2012 the National Director of US Intelligence, the number one spy chief in the country, testified before the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on what he believes to be the major threats for 2012.
16 BUNKER PREPARATION
The concept of a meteor striking the earth or an alien threat has long been themes played upon by Hollywood to expose us to the fear this brings.
The on going publicity on survival bunkers is growing as the 2012 doomsday debate gathers pace. Even the very wealthy can now purchase survival family bunkers.
Welcome to the Vision Report Watch Dear Member The preparations for Dec. 21, 2012, the day the world is supposed to end according to ancient Mayan predictions are well underway in China. According to Laurie Burkitt of The Wall Street Journal, people across the nation are getting ready for the coming Armageddon by reserving fictional tickets to escape on a modern day version of Noah's Ark. The escape from Earth is based off the movie "2012," a 2009 science fiction disaster film in which international leaders build a series of arks in China to save humanity from a cataclysmic ending.
Chinese online shopping portal, Taobao, has several online stores selling these tickets at 3 RMB a piece. The tickets have been popular as a new year’s gift, a comical way of ensuring one’s safety in the face of the 2012 Armageddon. Thousands of tickets have been sold so far. Physical stores are printing up and selling these tickets, too. One store in Jingsau has sold 2,500 train and ark tickets at 3 RMB each. Another one sold 1,700 Chinese Noah’s Ark passes in a month, at 2 RMB each. Although there are several versions of the ticket, the information on all of them remains consistent – the boarding time, which is midnight on December 21st 2012, and the boarding place, at Zhuo Ming Gu dock. This is the same information that is talked about in the movie 2012. Cabin seats and ticket numbers have also been included. To make the tickets look real, some stores have introduced ticketing systems that allow the customers to enter their name, nationality and other information on their tickets. Whilst this may bring a sense of humour in observing the reaction of people to a supposed incoming doomsday, intelligence agencies don't necessarily see possible reactions to doomsday events as humorous. In fact during 1999 and the run up to the end of the twentieth century, an infamous project was leaked to the public which revealed that the FBI had built a model of intelligence measures to cater for what they believed to be the threat caused by religious groups with a heavy apocalyptic doomsday focus. We examine this to see if this historical report offers clues as to what to possibly expect for December 2012.
All the best now. Enjoy the read. Reece Woodstock Chief Editor, Vision Report Watch
PROJECT MEGIDDO Blackberry Under the Spotlight In the run up to the year 2000 the prophecies of Nostradamus had receive exposure more than at any other time in history. The History Channel continually replayed the interpretation that the quatrains of Nostradamus seemed to converge on the run up to the year 2000 as being a time of great calamity in earths history in which the “King of Terror” would arise in July 1999.
Thirteen years later, the new “August 11, 1999” is December 21, 2012, the end of the Mayan Calendar, and linked with another astronomical event: the conjunction of the Winter Solstice Sun with the crossing point of the Galactic Equator. The new date for a new hope for a better future – and/or the demise of this earth – is therefore reprogrammed from 1999 to 2012.
The date being so close to a new millennium invoked apocalyptic prophecies and predictions of comets colliding with earth, an alien invasion, a nuclear war, or the return of the plutonium filled cassini spacecraft which were all listed as possible terrors. Others interpreted it as the awakening of the spirit of Jesus within the masses, or the opening of the Hall of Records under the great Sphinx – who, in Arab tradition, was called “the Father of Terror”.
Nostradamus has been exchanged for the often self -proclaimed heirs of Mayan priests, who claim that the end of the Mayan calendar will mark the apocalypse. In truth, though it is a fact that the Mayan calendar will end, there are no Mayan accounts that argue doom, or great change of any nature, will coincide with this calendar end. Whilst various governments around the world are secretly reacting differently to the growing 2012 hysteria most are outwardly dismissing the 2012 issue as simply hysteria, pointing back to the Y2K fiasco
Thirteen years later we are still here and are now being told that whatever you are planning for your future, whether it’s a new house, starting a family or even going on a diet - don’t bother. Later this year the world will end and your plans will be ruined. This is the general belief of thousands of people across the planet, preparing for the end of the world and death of mankind. So grab your diary and put this date in it - December 21st 2012. The concept is gaining momentum as many religious texts, historical documents and even NASA have ‘predicted’ that there will be major changes to the Earth in the year 2012. And with the help of celebrity believers including the alwaysreliable Mel Gibson joining in, 2012 has become the talking point at dinner parties everywhere. So, where has this cultural phenomenon come from and why do so many people believe? The widespread panic that accompanied the end of the millennium and the whole Y2K debacle seems to have shape shifted into another end of the world scare. Why should we believe this one when Y2K believers became figures of fun to all those who had mocked them.
However what many are not aware of is that in 1999 the FBI published a report regarding their growing interest in the apocalyptic phenomena leading up to 2000. The document published was called “Project Megiddo” and was named appropriately in relation to the plains of Megiddo in Israel.
PROJECTÂ MEGIDDOÂ Blackberry Under the Spotlight Megiddo is a hill in Israel near the modern settlement of Megiddo, known for theological, historical and geographical reasons. In ancient times Megiddo was an important city state. It is also is known alternatively as Tel Megiddo (Hebrew) and Tell al-Mutesellim (Arabic). The hill is made of 26 layers of the ruins of ancient cities in a strategic location at the head of a pass through the Carmel Ridge, which overlooks the Valley of Jezreel from the south. For over four thousand years this hill in has been the site of many battles. Ancient cities were established there to serve as a fortress on the plain of Jezreel to guard a mountain pass. As Megiddo was built and rebuilt, one city upon the other, a mound or hill was formed. The Hebrew word "Armageddon" means "hill of Megiddo." In English, the word has come to represent battle itself. The last book in the New Testament of the Bible designates Armageddon as the assembly point in the apocalyptic setting of God's final and conclusive battle against evil. The name "Megiddo" was thus an apt title for a project that was to analyze those who believe the year 2000 will usher in the end of the world and who would be willing to perpetrate acts of violence to bring that end about.
who attach special significance to the year 2000." An accompanying FBI statement mentioned "The threat posed by extremists as a result of perceived events associated with the Year 2000 (Y2K) is very real. The volatile mix of apocalyptic religious and (New World Order) conspiracy theories may produce violent acts aimed a precipitating the end of the world as prophesied in the Bible..."
The concern of the FBI was that there were militant conservative religious groups who believed that by creating widespread instances of massive destruction, violence, and death, that the end of the world would be precipitated to usher in either the Second Coming of Christ or some doomsday apocalyptic scenario based on the prophecies of secular seers such as Nostradamus. The report named followers of the white supremacy Christian Identity, the militia movement, Black Hebrew Israelites, and apocalyptic cults as potential terrorists who might become violent in reaction to the new millennium.
Insight on the News commented, "In a polemic
Project Megiddo was published on October 20th 1999 and was a protocol aimed at providing a procedure of how the US government was to handle the possible threat to US security from the increase of hysteria around the transitioning to a new century. The report was intended to alert U.S. law enforcement to what they described as the time as "the potential for extremist criminal activity in the United States by individuals or domestic groups
presented as a threat report, the FBI has targeted religious groups and right wing eccentrics as potential terrorists likely to go postal as the new millennium arrives...Even at the height of the Cold War during the seventies and eighties the FBI was not allowed to pursue openly declared revolutionary Marxists in this way, being required by the courts to show cause by establishing an actual attempt to commit illegal acts."
Data for the report was collected over a nine-month period of intensive intelligence gathering by the domestic terrorism unit of the FBI, The report was "considered to be so sensitive and secret that it would not be made public." Fortunately, the Center for studies on New Religions (CESNUR)
PROJECT MEGIDDO Blackberry Under the Spotlight obtained a copy and placed it on the Internet. The FBI report's executive summary follows: as well as two specific sections of the report which are of interest for this discussion. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The year 2000 is being discussed and debated at all levels of society. Most of the discussions regarding this issue revolve around the topic of technology and our society's overwhelming dependence on the multitude of computers and computer chips which make our world run smoothly. However, the upcoming millennium also holds important implications beyond the issue of computer technology. Many extremist individuals and groups place some significance on the next millennium, and as such it will present challenges to law enforcement at many levels. The significance is based primarily upon either religious beliefs relating to the Apocalypse or political beliefs relating to the New World Order (NWO) conspiracy theory. The challenge is how well law enforcement will prepare and respond. The following report, entitled "Project Megiddo," is intended to analyze the potential for extremist criminal activity in the United States by individuals or domestic extremist groups who profess an apocalyptic view of the millennium or attach special significance to the year 2000. The purpose behind this assessment is to provide law enforcement agencies with a clear picture of potential extremism motivated by the next millennium. The report does not contain information on domestic terrorist groups whose actions are not influenced by the year 2000. There are numerous difficulties involved in providing a thorough analysis of domestic security threats catalyzed by the new millennium. Quite simply, the very nature of the current domestic terrorism threat places severe limitations on effective intelligence gathering and evaluation. Ideological and philosophical belief systems which attach importance, and possibly violence, to the millennium have been well-articulated. From a law enforcement perspective, the problem therefore is not a lack of understanding of motivating ideologies: The fundamental problem is that the traditional focal point for counterterrorism analysis -- the terrorist group -- is not always well-defined or relevant in the current environment. The general trend in domestic extremism is the terrorist’s disavowal of traditional, hierarchical, and structured terrorist organizations. Even well-established militias, which tend to organize along military lines with central control, are characterized by factionalism and disunity. While several “professional” terrorist groups still exist and present a continued threat to domestic security, the overwhelming majority of extremist groups in the United States have adopted a fragmented, leaderless structure where individuals or small groups act with autonomy. Clearly, the worst act of domestic terrorism in United States history was perpetrated by merely two individuals: Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. In many cases, extremists of this sort are extremely difficult to identify until after an incident has occurred. Thus, analysis of domestic extremism in which the group serves as the focal point of evaluation has obvious limitations. a minor or trivial domestic threat. Without question, this
The Project Megiddo intelligence initiative has identified very few indications of specific threats to domestic security. Given the present nature of domestic extremism, this is to be expected. However, this is a function of the limitations of the group-oriented model of counterterrorism analysis and should not be taken necessarily as reflective of initiative has revealed indicators of potential violent activity on the part of extremists in this country. Militias, adherents of racist belief systems such as Christian Identity and Odinism, and other radical domestic extremists are clearly focusing on the millennium as a time of action. Certain individuals from these various perspectives are acquiring weapons, storing food and clothing, raising funds through fraudulent means, procuring safe houses, preparing compounds, surveying potential targets, and recruiting new converts. These and other indicators are not taking place in a vacuum, nor are they random or arbitrary. In the final analysis, while making specific predictions is extremely difficult, acts of violence in commemoration of the millennium are just as likely to occur as not. In the absence of intelligence that the more established and organized terrorist groups are planning millennial violence as an organizational strategy, violence is most likely to be perpetrated by radical fringe members of established groups. For example, while Aryan Nations leader Richard Butler publicly frowns on proactive violence, adherents of his religion or individual members of his organization may commit acts of violence autonomously. Potential cult-related violence presents additional challenges to law enforcement. The potential for violence on behalf of members of biblically-driven cults is determined almost exclusively by the whims of the cult leader. Therefore, effective intelligence and analysis of such cults requires an extensive understanding of the cult leader. Cult members generally act to serve and please the cult leader rather than accomplish an ideological objective. Almost universally, cult leaders are viewed as messianic in the eyes of their followers. Also, the cult leader’s prophecies, preachings, orders, and objectives are subject to indiscriminate change. Thus, while analysis of publicly stated goals and objectives of cults may provide hints about their behavior and intentions, it is just as likely to be uninformed or, at worst, misleading. Much more valuable is a thorough examination of the cult leader, his position of power over his followers, and an awareness of the responding behavior and activity of the cult. Sudden changes in activity - for example, less time spent on “Bible study” and more time spent on “physical training” - indicate that the cult may be preparing for some type of action. The millennium holds special significance for many, and as this pivotal point in time approaches, the impetus for the initiation of violence becomes more acute. Several religiously motivated groups envision a quick, fiery ending in an apocalyptic battle. Others may initiate a sustained campaign of terrorism in the United States to prevent the NWO. Armed with the urgency of the millennium as a motivating factor, new clandestine groups may conceivably form to engage in violence toward the U.S. Government or its citizens. Most importantly, this analysis clearly shows that perceptions matter. The perceptions of the leaders and followers of extremist organizations will contribute much toward the ultimate course of action they choose. For example, in-depth analysis of Y2K compliancy on the part of various key sectors that rely on computers has determined that, despite a generally positive outlook for overall compliance, there will be problem industries and minor difficulties and inconveniences.12 If they occur, these inconveniences are likely to cause varying responses by the extreme fringes. Members of
PROJECT MEGIDDO Blackberry Under the Spotlight various militia groups, for example, have identified potentially massive power failures as an indication of a United Nations-directed NWO takeover. While experts have indicated that only minor brownouts will occur, various militias are likely to perceive such minor brownouts as indicative of a larger conspiracy. The Senate Special Committee on the Year 2000 Technology Problem has stated that some state and local governments could be unprepared, including the inability to provide benefits payments. This could have a significant impact in major urban areas, resulting in the possibility for civil unrest. Violent white supremacists are likely to view such unrest as an affirmation of a racist, hate-filled world view. Likewise, militia members who predict the implementation of martial law in response to a Y2K computer failure would become all the more fearful. 2. THE NEW WORLD ORDER CONSPIRACY THEORY AND THE YEAR 2000 COMPUTER BUG Unlike religiously based terrorists, militia anxiety and paranoia specifically relating to the year 2000 are based mainly on a political ideology. Some militia members read significance into 2000 as it relates to their conception of the NWO conspiracy.  The NWO conspiracy theory holds that the United Nations (UN) will lead a military coup against the nations of the world to form a socialist or One World Government. UN troops, consisting mostly of foreign armies, will commence a military takeover of America. The UN will mainly use foreign troops on American soil because foreigners will have fewer reservations about killing American citizens. U.S. armed forces will not attempt to stop this invasion by UN troops and, in fact, the U.S. military may be “deputized” as a branch of the UN armed forces. The American military contingent overseas will also play a large part in this elaborate conspiracy theory, as they will be used to help conquer the rest of the world. The rationale for this part of the theory is that American soldiers will also have less qualms about killing foreigners, as opposed to killing their own citizens. Under this hypothetical NWO/One World Government, the following events are to takeplace: 1) private property rights and private gun ownership will be abolished; 2) all national, state and local elections will become meaningless, since they will be controlled by the UN; 3) the U.S. Constitution will be supplanted by the UN charter; 4) only approved churches and other places of worship will be permitted to operate and will become appendages of the One World Religion, which will be the only legitimate doctrine of religious beliefs and ethical values; 5) home schooling will be outlawed and all school curriculum will need to be approved by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); and 6) American military bases and other federal facilities will be used as concentration camps by the UN to confine those patriots, including the militias, who defy the NWO. Other groups beside the UN that are often mentioned as being part of the NWO conspiracy theory are Jews, Communists, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderbergers and the Trilateral Commission. Law enforcement officials will probably notice different versions of this theory, depending upon the source. The NWO conspiracy theory is particularly relevant to the millennium because the year 2000 is considered to be a triggering device for the NWO due to the element of computer breakdown. Many computers around the world are based on a numerical system in which the year is only registered by the last two digits. A number of militia members accept the theory that on January 1, 2000, many
computers will misinterpret this date as January 1, 1900, and malfunction and/or shut down completely. They further believe that these major computer malfunctions will cause widespread chaos at all levels of society- economic, social and political. This chaos will theoretically create a situation in which American civilization will collapse, which will then produce an environment that the UN will exploit to forcibly take over the United States. Therefore, these militia members (as well as other groups) believe that the year 2000 will be the catalyst for the NWO. According to James Wickstrom, former leader of the defunct Posse Comitatus and “Minister” of the True Church of Israel, anyone who holds any powerful political influence knows that the Y2K crisis may be the final fuse that will lead to the NWO that “David Rockefeller and the rest of his satanic jew seedline desire to usher in upon the earth.”  He claims that Jews have conspired to create the Y2K problem and that the prospect of impending computer failure is very real. Similarly, The New American, an organ of the ultraconservative John Birch Society, speculates that the Y2K bug could be America’s Reichstag fire, a reference to the 1933 arson attack on Germany’s Parliament building that was used by Hitler as an excuse to enact police state laws. Similar to this train of thought, Norm Olson, leader of the Northern Michigan Regional Militia, believes constitutional rights probably will be suspended before the real crisis hits. He states: “It will be the worst time for humanity since the Noahic flood.” However, there are some extremists who do not attach any major significance to the Y2K problem. In his article, “The Millennium Bug and ‘Mainstreaming’ the News," William Pierce of the National Alliance tells his followers not to worry, or at least, not to worry very much about the Y2K issue. Pierce predicts that the main event that will occur on New Year’s Day 2000 is that crazed millennialists will go “berserk when the Second Coming fails to occur.” Also, “a few right-wing nuts may launch a premature attack on the government, figuring that without its computers the government won’t be able to fight back.” Pierce claims that the lights will remain on, and that airplanes will not fall from the sky. He says that he is able to make such a prediction with some degree of confidence because, “contrary to what some cranks would have you believe, the computer professionals and the government have been working on the Y2K problem for some time.” 3. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF JERUSALEM The city of Jerusalem, cherished by Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike, faces many serious challenges as the year 2000 approaches. As already evidenced by the deportation of various members of the religious cult known as the Concerned Christians, zealotry from all three major monotheistic religions is particularly acute in Israel, where holy shrines, temples, churches, and mosques are located. While events surrounding the millennium in Jerusalem are much more problematic for the Israeli government than for the United States, the potential for violent acts in Jerusalem will cause reverberations around the world, including the United States. The extreme terrorist fringes of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are all present in the United States. Thus, millennial violence in Jerusalem could conceivably lead to violence in the United States as well. Within Jerusalem, the Temple Mount, or Haram al-Sharif, holds a special significance for both Muslims and Jews. The Temple Mount houses the third holiest of all Islamic sites, the Dome of the Rock. Muslims believe that the prophet Muhammad ascended to Heaven from a slab of stone -- the “Rock of Foundation”-- located in the
PROJECT MEGIDDO Blackberry Under the Spotlight center of what is now the Dome of the Rock. In addition, when Arab armies conquered Jerusalem in 638 A.D., the Caliph Omar built the al-Aqsa Mosque facing the Dome of the Rock on the opposite end of the Temple Mount. The Western (or Wailing) Wall, the last remnant of the second Jewish temple that the Romans destroyed in 70 A.D., stands at the western base of the Temple Mount. The Western Wall has long been a favorite pilgrimage site for Jews, and religious men and women pray there on a daily basis. Thus, the Temple Mount is equally revered by Jews as the site upon which the first and second Jewish Temples stood.
They see a time in the future where there will be a confrontation on the globe comparable to that biblical scenario, and have made preparations for it when it comes about. This is no myth, nor is it imagination, but absolute reality. This government project is created and drawn up with very definite guidelines for implementation when the need arises. Furthermore, the fact that it is an F.B.I project, puts it directly in the enforcement and law and order section of governmental policy making.
Israeli officials are extremely concerned that the Temple Mount, an area already seething with tension and distrust among Jews and Muslims, will be the stage for violent encounters between religious zealots. Most troubling is the fact that an act of terrorism need not be the catalyst that sparks widespread violence. Indeed, a simple symbolic act of desecration, or even perceived desecration, of any of the holy sites on the Temple Mount is likely to trigger a violent reaction. For example, the Islamic holy month of Ramadan is expected to coincide with the arrival of the year 2000. Thus, even minor provocations on or near the Temple Mount may provide the impetus for a violent confrontation.
Project Megiddo was created as a strategic plan for the containment and control of citizens in a time of The implications of pilgrimages to Jerusalem by vast numbers of international uprising, and was designed to police tourists are ominous, particularly since such pilgrimages are likely to and constrain society at all levels. include millennial or apocalyptic cults on a mission to hasten the arrival of the Messiah. There is general concern among Israeli officials that Jewish and Islamic extremists may react violently to the influx of Christians, particularly near the Temple Mount. The primary concern is that extreme millennial cults will engage in proactive violence designed to hasten the second coming of Christ. Perhaps the most likely scenario involves an attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock. Some millennial cults hold that these structures must be destroyed so that the Jewish Temple can be rebuilt, which they see as a prerequisite for the return of the Messiah. Additionally, several religious cults have already made inroads into Israel, apparently in preparation for what they believe to be the endtimes.
Many top scientists and the like have gone public on many of these experiments and have devoted their lives to the exposure of this corruption. These are people like scientist David Kelly who mysteriously committed suicide over the "yellow cake" affair in London, and the ex-signals office Secret Service man in Australia that exposed criminal violation of the Geneva treaty on treatment of prisoners of war by Australian soldiers in Iraq, that John Howard so vehemently denied.
It is beyond the scope of this document to assess the potential repercussions from an attack on Jewish or Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem. It goes without saying, however, that an attack on the Dome of the Rock or the Al-Aqsa Mosque would have serious implications. In segments of the Islamic world, close political and cultural ties between Israel and the United States are often perceived as symbolic of anti-Islamic policies by the Western world. Attacks on Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem, particularly by Christian or Jewish extremists, are likely to be perceived by Islamic extremists as attacks on Islam itself. Finally, the possibility exists that Islamic extremist groups will capitalize upon the huge influx of foreigners into Jerusalem and engage in a symbolic attack.
The Bible itself says that evil will be exposed. You can only hide the truth for a little while and it will arise like sin to the surface. But society has a habit of refusing to believe the obvious even when it stares it right in the face, and to justify the ignorance concerning them, file these events as conspiracy theories. Like all the neo-cons, they feed us our crumbs and we politely say thank you and go on about our lives while they condition us to believe what they want us to believe.
When one analyses this report it causes us to ask why the F.B.I. would want to use a word like “Megiddo” to express a plan they have, or more to the point, why would they even allow that sort of terminology to be used when many believe it to be mystical and mythological. The reason is sobering.
Project Meggido had some very nasty and sinister sections to it. One such section deals with the problem of the resistance of religious conservatives in times of crisis. They have now moved from maintaining law and order to the place of dictating law and order. Now, under the guise of dealing with the threat of terrorism, they are recruiting pastors all around the world to become the herders of human
PROJECT MEGIDDO Blackberry Under the Spotlight cattle and pacifiers of the populace, for the moment could retaliate making this apocalyptic cataclysm when they deem it right to introduce Martial Law for reality, so order must be enforced. the dictatorial control of citizens. Many pastors are going along with it, and becoming agents for the government on their payroll. This is what Project Megiddo is all about. It was particularly drawn up around the introduction of the 21st century in response to the religious extremists that they anticipated would attempt to overthrow established government. Training and preparation involves gun control, and going into interpretations of the Bible’s apocalyptic religious beliefs and the significance of prophecy regarding Israel. It looks at the different sections of Biblical Christianity and then addresses many of the cults and other offshoots of belief. It deals with the Book of Revelation and points out how Federal Government in many countries is always viewed as the enemy and sometimes seen as Satan to the common person.
It opposes any one and anything that in any way suggests there is a New World Order coming and makes mention of the insanity of such people who stir up reaction and resistance who support this idea. The document deems them to be psychopathic. It states their main concern is that extremist Christian groups will attempt to hasten the coming of Christ in seeing these times to be what they consider and believe to be Biblical end times thereby creating Armageddon. A simple step then, in understanding why this project carries the title ‘Project Megiddo’.
Paul Hall, managing editor of the Jubilee, a Christian Patriot publication (www.jubileenewspaper.com) says the report amounts to "declaring war on Christians." Hall tells Insight in the first interview he has given in five years that Project Megiddo is a poorly written fantasy about a battle some in the federal government would love to engage in. "Unfortunately, their mythical enemy is In an intense secular study of the Book of not interested," he says Revelation, it teaches how people understand Bible numerics, teaches on the ancient cults and instructs Hall explains that there were two important points on Biblical prophecy concerning Babylon and the that the FBI apparently had overlooked. "First," he symbolism used there. Documents mention the says, "the scripture is clear that we won't know the United States of America is seen as the modern time or date of the Second Coming of Christ. Babylon and is hated as such. The entire project Second, we couldn't force the battle of Armageddon was directed against Christian fundamentalism, even if we wanted to. God has the timetable and which is considered extremist and not one mention none of us believe that we can cause this to is made accusatively of other religious extremism happen. Furthermore, contrary to what they say, until the very last chapter where the emphasis is we're not motivated by race. They say we want to again slanted at Christians, warning that they may kill all non whites and that the Jews are the spawn create an apocalyptic confrontation on the Al Aqsa of evil. This isn't true.

We blame ourselves. attacked in some way by Christians and that Islam
THE EXTERNAL THREAT Could the concept of a meteor such as Planet X striking the earth be an event that the Global Elite feel would help to break down national barriers and unite the world. The movie Armageddon, Deep Impact and Independence Day were some of the more recent films in our times which have helped to sow a seed into the consciousness of today’s society through a believable portrayal of an external threat. The seed being one which believes that due to historical and religious conflicts and ideologies between various nations on the earth, true would unity can never really be achieved unless the existence of man is threatened by something outside of the earth zone. For instance, Deep Impact starts off with a young astronomy student, Leo Beiderman discovering a large comet. What he doesn't know is that the comet is headed straight for Earth and is an E.L.E., extinction level event. The comet is 7 miles long and 500 billion tons in weight, roughly the size of Manhattan and height of Mount Everest. The story falls into a groove that follows a MSNBC reporter, who is investigating a report of a sex scandal in the White House and stumbles upon the E.L.E. Having poked around a little more, she discovers enough to "force" the President of the United States to announce what is going to happen to the earth. During the year that the comet was only known to the two American and Russian government, they had been building a spaceship to fly out to the comet. The plan was to plant some nuclear devices on the comet and blow it to pieces. The US also takes other precautions by building vast underground caves that can hold a million people for up to two years. Armageddon which was released in 1998 begins with a computer animation and voice-over by Charlton Heston depicting the death of the dinosaurs by a comet strike. Sixty-five million years later, humanity faces a similar calamity, the first indication of trouble comes when a meteor shower destroys the Space Shuttle Atlantis and impressively lays waste to New York. NASA, under the leadership of Dan Truman finds the reason for this unexpected crisis, a rogue comet has collided with the asteroid belt and sent a number of asteroids towards earth. The largest asteroid headed for earth is the size of Texas, a 'global killer'. With only eighteen days remaining until Armageddon, several proposals are made on how disaster can be averted. The only viable solution calls for astronauts to land on the asteroid and place a nuclear device deep within the asteroid's core. Independence Day takes on a theme where the actual threat is not a meteor but an actual extra terrestrial intelligence. Released in 1996 the movie starts out quickly with the sight of a gigantic alien spaceship hovering over the craters of the moon, heading towards the Earth. The film has the usual news on earth, like all invasion flicks, having the news spread, starting from a small organization investigating extraterrestrial activity, then to the military, who then phone calls the White House, giving the full news to President Thomas Whitmore. The movie evolves into one where it becomes clear that reason for the alien visitation is hostile and then leads to a major military conflict. How can we forget that former US president, Ronald Reagan on three separate occasions in public speeches, alluded to the impact on humanity from an extra-terrestrial threat. "... when you stop to think that we're all God's children, wherever we may live in the world, I couldn't help but say to him, just think how easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from some other species from another planet outside in the universe. We'd forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries and we would find out once and for all that we really are all human beings here on this earth together" White House transcript of "Remarks of the President to Fallston High School Students and Faculty" December 4, 1985
"In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond.

It called for the horrific and catastrophic that it would unite a global establishment of six national emergency centers in justification for their entry into the Middle East, first major regions in the US to be located on existing military installations. in Afghanistan and then later Iraq. One of the difficulties faced with understanding government behaviour is whether their responses and actions in specific situations are based on legitimate concerns or whether the response is there to camouflage an already premeditated alternative agenda.
Now some political analysts believe that Iran and Syria are possible next targets as the US looks to extends is influence across the entire Middle East as part of a vision to subjugate the threat to their implementation of a new world order. The easy “fall guy” needed to make the plan work would be nations accused of harbouring “islamic terrorists”
The stated purpose of the "national emergency centers" is to provide "temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster." In actuality, what we are dealing with are FEMA internment camps. HR 645 states that the camps can also be used to "meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security."
There has been virtually no press coverage of HR 645. These "civilian facilities" on US military bases are to be established in cooperation with the US Military. Modelled on Guantanamo Bay, what we Considering the potential validity of such schools of are dealing with is the militarization of FEMA thought it becomes clear that those who express internment facilities. publicly their views of a coming dictatorial world government and new world order, could also be Once a person is arrested and interned in a FEMA blamed for some painful event triggered secretly by camp located on a military base, that person would political secret groups wishing to raise hostility in all likelihood, under a national emergency, fall against such groups.

The stated objectives of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are to:
In the words of Rep. Ron Paul: "...the fusion centers, militarized police, surveillance cameras and a domestic military command is not enough... Even though we know that detention facilities are already in place, they now want to legalize the construction of FEMA camps on military installations using the ever popular excuse that the facilities are for the purposes of a national emergency. With the phony debt-based economy getting worse and worse by the day, the possibility of civil unrest is becoming a greater threat to the establishment. One need only look at Iceland, Greece and other nations for what might happen in the United States next."
The proposed internment camps should be seen in relation to the broader process of militarization of civilian institutions. The construction of internment camps predates the introduction of HR 645 (Establishment of Emergency Centers) in January 2009.

What is the political intent and purpose of these camps? They are manned, but yet do not contain prisoners. Why do they need all these nonoperating prisons? What are they waiting for? We continuously hear that our current prisons are overcrowded and they are releasing prisoners because of this situation. But what about all these facilities? What are they really for? Why are there armed guards yet no one to protect themselves against? And what is going to be the kick-off point to put these facilities into operation? What would bring about a situation that would call into effect the need for these new prison facilities? A man-made or natural catastrophe?

There are, according to various (unconfirmed) reports, some 800 FEMA prison camps in different regions of the U.S. Moreover, since the 1980s, the US military has developed "tactics, techniques and procedures" to suppress civilian dissent, to be used in the eventuality of mass protests (United States Army Field Manual 19-15 under Operation Garden Once a major disaster occurs (whether it is a real Plot, entitled "Civil Disturbances" was issued in event or manufactured event does not matter) 1985).

US WORLDWIDE THREAT ASSESSMENT
On February 4, 2012 the National Director of US Intelligence, the number one spy chief in the country, testified before the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Director James Clapper delivered the agency’s annual Worldwide Threat Assessment. Among the subjects addressed were Iran, North Korea, the Arab Spring, al Qaeda, the Taliban, Anonymous and surprisingly, global water shortages. Iran: The Director’s biggest threat was seen coming from Iran, mostly due to the possibility of the country developing nuclear weapons someday. For the short term, the assessment confirms that the US doesn’t believe the country is actively developing nuclear arms, yet. His testimony included, “Iran's technical advancement, particularly in uranium enrichment, strengthens our assessment that Iran has the scientific, technical and industrial capacity to eventually produce nuclear weapons, making the central issue its political will to do so. These advancements contribute to our judgment that Iran is technically capable of producing enough highly enriched uranium for a weapon, if it so chooses. We judge Iran would likely choose missile delivery as its preferred method of delivering a nuclear weapon.” The Intelligence Director went on to inform the Senate Committee that there was behind the scenes infighting in Iran among its most powerful leaders. Clapper explained the rivalry goes to the top and is ultimately, “between Supreme Leader Khamenei and President Ahmadinejad." Al Qaeda: With the assassination of Osama bin Laden, the US Intelligence agency believes the next two to three years will be critical for Al Qaeda. Director Clapper believes that the central al Qaeda organization in Pakistan, formerly led by bin Laden, will continue to become less important and involved in global threats. Instead, the agency believes the formerly centralized group will become more scattered, with numerous major centers and charismatic leaders. The main reason for the loss of stature for the Pakistani segment of al Qaeda, according to the assessment, has been the overwhelming pressure and force place on the group on Afghanistan and Pakistan. The testimony states, “We judge that al Qaeda's losses are so substantial and its operating environment so restricted that a new group of leaders, even if they could be found, would have difficulty integrating into the organization and compensating for mounting losses."
US WORLDWIDE THREAT ASSESSMENT The segment of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is considered to be the most likely perpetrator of any future global terrorist attacks. The Threat Assessment states, “We judge AQAP remains the node most likely to attempt transnational attacks. [Awlaki's] death probably reduces, at least temporarily, AQAP's ability to plan transnational attacks, but many of those responsible for implementing plots, including bomb makers, financiers, and facilitators, remain and could advance plots." The US assessment of al Qaeda in Iraq reveals little concern to the US, except for American interests in Iraq. The report explains the belief that al Qaeda in Iraq will concentrate all its energy on overthrowing the majority Shiite Iraqi government and replacing it with a minority-led Sunni government as was in place under Saddam Hussein. US Passport Holding Terrorists: Also attached to the al Qaeda section was a brief mention of US citizens who have left the country, and returned in many cases, to train with the al Qaeda linked group al Shabaab in east Africa. The Threat Assessment specifically states that the intelligence agency is blind to or unaware of any other instances outside eastern Africa, “Members of the group -- particularly a foreign fighter cadre that includes U.S. passport holders -- may also have aspirations to attack inside the United States. However, we lack insight into concrete operational plans outside the Horn of Africa." North Korea: Aside from reporting the two recent nuclear weapons tests in North Korea, the agency said it was too early to tell what trajectory the country’s new leader Kim Jong Un would take. The most eyecatching statement was the confirmation that North Korea had previously been supplying Iran and Syria with ballistic missiles and other technology. The section concluded by assuring, “We remain alert to the possibility that North Korea might again export nuclear technology." Arab Spring: The agency’s threat assessment included a gloomy scenario for countries in the Middle East and North Africa experiencing democracy for the first time in generations. Citing the US government’s support of the various overthrown dictators, the report concedes that the United States will not have as much influence over the countries involved as it previously did. Making matters worse, the revolutionary environment that toppled so many long standing regimes has created an almost chaotic security situation. The statement explains, “The unrest potentially provides terrorists inspired by the global jihadist movement more operating space, as security services focus more on internal security and, in some cases, undergo transformations in make-up and orientation.”
US WORLDWIDE THREAT ASSESSMENT The agency believes most US allies in the Middle East will continue their friendly relationship, if for no other reason than for financial aid and security against Iran. Emergency Censorship: A statement in the 2012 US Intelligence Threat Assessment appears to place the US government on the opposite side of freedom of speech and the unhindered distribution of ideas. The report calls the inability of Middle Eastern dictators to shut down social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, a “failure” and a threat to the future security of the US. Receiving partial credit for the failure of governments to shut down social media sites during national unrest were the groups Anonymous and LulzSec. They’ve also been credited with breaking into some of the most secure networks in the world. The analysis provided to the Senate Committee includes, “Hacker groups, such as Anonymous and Lulz Security (LulzSec), have conducted distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks and website defacements against government and corporate interests they oppose. The well publicized intrusions into NASDAQ and International Monetary Fund (IMF) networks underscore the vulnerability of key sectors of the U.S. and global economy." Drinking water: How can the world’s most abundant substance suddenly become the world’s most valuable and scarce? The answer – multinational corporations. Looking back into the past, there are a number of reasons for the globe’s water shortage. Some include poisoning from pesticides and chemicals. Others include flooding and draught. Looking forward however, the biggest reason for millions dying of thirst throughout Africa and Asia may be corporate monopolies on water rights. For the past few years, investors from China, Russia, Europe and the US have held bidding wars, and some military wars, for the rights to water in the draught stricken continent. In some instances, rivers have been damned or diverted, taking away the drinking water of entire nations. For a decade, the world’s venture capitalists have known that water would soon be the most valuable commodity on Earth. They’ve spent that time positioning themselves to own every drop of it. Going forward, the price for drinking water, even in places like the United States, will come at an ever higher price tag. That price is so high already that the US Intelligence Threat Assessment warns, “Now and for the foreseeable future, water shortages and pollution probably will negatively affect the economic performance of important U.S. trading partners” and thus, negatively affecting the U.S.
BUNKERÂ PREPARATIONÂ "What if the 2012 prophecies are true?" asks a Californian businessman known on the web for selling nuclear bomb and asteroid-proof clandestine bunkers to wealthy families. Vivos, a California based company, has created a $10 million bunker that's equipped to deal with global catastrophe.
The company provides a detailed overview of how its bunker and underground tunnels are equipped with their own power generation, food supply, water wells, filtration systems, security devices and medical equipment. A comprehensible enough project in the light of predictions about global warming, resource wars, nuclear conflict and the like, the sincerity of the project is perhaps slightly called into question by the company marketing the product on the back of Hollywood blockbusters such as "2012" and "The Day After Tomorrow". The Daily Mail spoke to at least two buyers of the bunkers, both of whom only make up a tiny fraction of people who have shelled out a huge amount of money in the hopes of protecting themselves in times of massive tragedies. It is a well known fact that Americans are reportedly rushing to buy $25 survival guides just to keep themselves informed of what could happen should the 2012 doomsday prediction come to pass. The Doomsday bunkers, meanwhile, reportedly costs $ 48,000 per-person. David Morrison, senior scientist at the NASA Astrobiology Institute, confirmed there are many members of the public who are extremely worried over spreading news that the Mayans have predicted the world will end in 2012. In fact, Mr. Morrison said he had been receiving about ten emails a day from worried members of the public who are 'seriously, seriously upset' over the Mayan prediction. Some of the emails are too personal, with remarks on almost unmanageable fears and even suicidal thoughts. 'Nothing bad will happen to the Earth in 2012,' says NASA on its website. 'Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than four billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012.'
NASA's words seem to mean nothing to others who can afford to pay for extreme safety measures in worst case scenarios. Robert Vicino, a Californian businessman who is building the luxury bunkers in secret locations, promotes the properties by asking the market: "What if the prophecies are true? Which side of the door do you want to be on?"
The Daily Mail spoke to Steve Cramer, who already made a reservation for a bunker for his family, and insists he is not acting on baseless fears. "We're not crazy people: these are fearful times. My family wants to survive. You have to be prepared," he said.
BUNKER PREPARATION Other affluent families who have secured a spot in the publicized nuclear bomb and asteroid-proof bunkers all say they only wanted to make sure they have exhausted all means possible in securing their safety in case tragedies of large-scale proportions strike in 2012 as predicted. Jason Hodge, another bunker buyer says, "I want to make sure I have a place I can take me (sic) and my family if that worst-case scenario were to happen."
Several researchers have noted that the Mayans did not specify exactly what would happen in 2012. A variety of speculations have spread about the prediction, including one that says the world will not literally end and will only experience huge significant changes, and another that says the Mayans knew the world will indeed end in 2012. Many other versions have been reported many times over, and the public's imagination has gone wild all over the world. Talks of the 2012 phenomenon are expected to grow months before it the fateful date. While the Mayan prediction has been the subject of many television programmes and films, these features provide neither answers nor comfort to the anxious members of the global society who are at least partially convinced that the world will come to its end this year. However it is not just the public who have access to bunkers, should they be extremely wealthy. We also know, for a fact, that the US government has built secure bunkers in the past to protect high value personnel like the President of the United States and other elected officials. This was confirmed prior to and during the September 11th attacks, when President Bush and Vice President Cheney were reportedly transferred to secure, undisclosed locations. Additionally a Wikileak story emerged in which a report was prepared for Prime Minister Putin by the Russian foreign military intelligence directorate stating that President Obama and US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates were put into what the Americans call their “2012 ALICE Bunker” in December 2009 after the mysterious appearance of what has become known as the “Norway Spiral”. As to what “2012 Project ALICE Bunker” is referring to in this report is not clarified. What can be inferred from this language, though, is that whatever occurred over Norway in December 2009 caused such a state of alarm within the US Military establishment, they advised their President and Secretary of Defense to take shelter in a previously unidentified bunker. In 2006, the EU and other interested parties commissioned the building of a seed bank about 430 feet above sea level, deep inside a frozen mountain, with the hope being that if the Earth was ever threatened by a large scale catastrophe like climate change, nuclear war or an asteroid, the human population would retain access to the many varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs and plants available in modern society. The so-called Doomsday Vault was built by the EU and other governments quickly and efficiently over a period of 18 months and houses millions of seeds from around the world. The rapid deployment of the vault has lead some to speculate that a global catastrophe is imminent. Jesse Ventura, a conspiracy whistle blower believes that the U.S. government is engaged in the building of massive underground bunker systems under the new Denver airport.
BUNKER PREPARATION Anecdotal reports over the years suggest that the largest buyer of frozen dried goods from major frozen dried food manufacturers is none other than the U.S. government. A well known emergency preparedness retailer indicates that they serve not only retail customers, but government entities as well, including the Transportation Security Administration, US State Department, and the Department of Homeland Security. The government is and has been preparing for something, perhaps many things, for decades. The very existence of FEMA and Department of Homeland Security suggests that they are planning for wide a variety of possibilities. To be clear, the fact that they are planning for something doesn’t necessarily mean that it will happen – just that it’s a possibility. And how far out there scenarios?
is the US government when it comes to disaster planning and gaming emergency
Consider an October 25, 2010 report from AOL News discussing the potential threat from an incoming asteroid. It may be the stuff of science fiction movies for most, but for White House Office of Science and Technology Policy director, John Holdren, it’s a possibility that cannot be ignored. In a series of letters to Congress, Holdren outlines a plan for protecting the United States from a near-Earth object that is expected to collide with Earth; and implementing a deflection campaign, in consultation with international bodies, should one be necessary. The plan includes collaborative efforts between governments and militaries around the world in the event that NASA spots an incoming asteroid. If nothing else, this proves that there are agencies within the US government that dedicate time, money (lots of it) and resources to the study of scenarios that can be considered The End of The World As We Know It. Those very same people, your neighbors, friends, and family members, who may consider your personal preparedness efforts a little over the top would likely agree that the government spending billions of dollars on emergency preparedness is a worthwhile project given the many possibilities for calamity to occur. The issue, however, is that the government may be spending billions, but they cannot possibly prepare for wide scale, total collapse situations where tens of millions of lives are at risk. It is simply not possible. Our government, even if they tried, would not be able to stock enough food and resources for the entire population of the United States. They can’t possibly respond to widespread catastrophes that may include simultaneous nuclear, biological or chemical attacks on multiple U.S. cities, or an electromagnetic pulse threat from a rogue nation, or even a solar flare that threatens our power grid infrastructure. The takeaway from understanding that the government is preparing for disasters is to acknowledge that, in an emergency, you and your family may be left floating up a Creek without a paddle. The FEMA web site makes an effort to inform people that each individual should be preparing for emergencies themselves, though most Americans have ignored this, or are simply unaware that the recommendations exist. FEMA makes it clear that they may not be able to provide assistance. If an earthquake, hurricane, winter storm, or other disaster strikes your community, you might not have access to food, water, and electricity for days or even weeks, they warn in one of their reports. However for Christians we put our hope in Christ because two thousands years he prophesied how in the last days mankind would be seriously distressed by some significant calamities and events that would occur and cause widespread fear and paranoia. However he also left comforting words that when such things happen we should know that his coming is at the door and so we rest assured of the blessed hope. “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars,; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then will they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” Luke 21:25-27
