HALLIBURTON DETENTION CENTERS: (New York Times) = Cheney's even making $$ off throwing us in concentration camps... (bastard!)

The New York Times

Halliburton Subsidiary Gets Contract to Add Temporary Immigration Detention Centers


Published: February 4, 2006

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3 — The Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a contract worth up to $385 million for building temporary immigration detention centers to Kellogg Brown & Root, the Halliburton subsidiary that has been criticized for overcharging the Pentagon for its work in Iraq.

KBR would build the centers for the Homeland Security Department for an unexpected influx of immigrants, to house people in the event of a natural disaster or for new programs that require additional detention space, company executives said. KBR, which announced the contract last month, had a similar contract with immigration agencies from 2000 to last year.

The contract with the Corps of Engineers runs one year, with four optional one-year extensions. Officials of the corps said that they had solicited bids and that KBR was the lone responder.

Halliburton Detention Centers

Margaret Kimberley


What ought to shock and terrify every American is that KBR, a Halliburton subsidiary, was awarded a $385 million contract to build "temporary detention facilities" in case of an "immigration emergency":

"The contract may also provide migrant detention support to other U.S. Government organizations in the event of an immigration emergency, as well as the development of a plan to react to a national emergency, such as a natural disaster. In the event of a natural disaster, the contractor could be tasked with providing housing for ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) personnel performing law enforcement functions in support of relief efforts."

Anyone paying a little bit of attention will ask, "What immigration emergency?" If there is an immigration emergency looming on the horizon it is a big secret. Of course immigrants will be the first ensnared in the net that big brother Bush has in mind, but the net won't stop with them.

What sort of national emergency requires detention centers? America has plenty of prisons. More of our population is behind bars than in any country on earth. There are detention centers for immigration in existence already. As for helping in case of a natural disaster, hurricane Katrina proved that saving American lives is not on the Bush agenda.

When the word detention comes up, hairs should rise on the back of every neck. Thanks to the Patriot Act and the creation of "enemy combatants" these detention centers can be used to lock up anyone for any reason for any length of time that Uncle Sam wishes.




Halliburton Detention Camps For Political Subversives

Paul Joseph Watson/Prison | February 1 2006

[Ed note: Please check the original article for LINKS to more articles, videos or interviews that explain EXACTLY what the controversial facts below are. They reference various measures that have already taken place and that were written about as separate pieces - including many mainstream news stories. Oh - and check out Gil Scott Heron's "King Alfred Plan" song from 1972 where he quotes official U.S. government regulations concerning plans to detain American citizens in "camps" that are a threat to the "state", and specifially cites Allenwood, PA. In fact, come to think of it, that's probably part of the reason why they weren't used - SO - spread the word that we don't want to be Cheney's turd...]

In another shining example of modern day corporate fascism, it was announced recently that Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root had been awarded a $385 million dollar contract by Homeland Security to construct detention and processing facilities in the event of a national emergency.

The language of the preamble to the agreement veils the program with talk of temporary migrant holding centers, but it is made clear that the camps will also be used "as the development of a plan to react to a national emergency."

Discussions of federal concentration camps is no longer the rhetoric of paranoid Internet conspiracy theorists, it is mainstream news.

Under the enemy combatant designation anyone at the behest of the US government, even if they are a US citizen, can be kidnapped and placed in an internment facility forever without trial. Jose Padilla, an American citizen, has spent over four years in a Navy brig and is only just now getting a trial.

In 2002, FEMA sought bids from major real estate and engineering firms to construct giant internment facilities in the case of a chemical, biological or nuclear attack or a natural disaster.

Okanogan County Commissioner Dave Schulz went public three years ago with his contention that his county was set to be a location for one of the camps.

Alex Jones has attended numerous military urban warfare training drills across the US where role players were used to simulate arresting American citizens and taking them to internment camps.

The move towards the database state in the US and the UK, where every offence is arrestable and DNA records of every suspect, even if later proven innocent, are permanently kept on record, is the only tool necessary to create a master list of 'subversives' that would be subject to internment in a manufactured time of national emergency.

The national ID card is also intended to be used for this purpose, just as the Nazis used early IBM computer punch card technology to catalogue lists of homosexuals, gypsies and Jews before the round-ups began.

Section 44 of the Terrorism Act in Britain enables police to obtain name and address details of anyone they choose, whether they are acting suspiciously or not. Those details remain on a database forever. To date, 119,000 names of political activists have been taken and this is a figure that will skyrocket once the post 7/7 figures are taken into account. At the height of the Iraq war protests, around a million people marched across the country. However, most of these people were taking part in a political protest for the first time and as a one off. Even if we take a figure of half, 500,000 people being politically active in Britain, that means that the government has already registered around a quarter of political activists in the UK.

In truth the number is probably above half because we are not factoring in those already on MI5 'subversive' lists and those listed after the 7/7 bombings, when the powers were used even more broadly.

Concurrently in the US, a new provision in the extended Patriot Act bill would allow Secret Service agents to arrest and jail protesters accused of breaching any security perimeter, even if the President or any other protected official isn't present. The definition of 'free speech zones' can be shifted around loosely and this would open the floodgates for protesters to be grabbed and hauled away in any circumstance at the whim of the Secret Service.

During the 2004 RNC protests, thousands of New Yorkers were arrested en masse in indiscriminate round-ups and taken to Pier 57 (pictured), a condemned, asbestos poisoned old bus depot, where they were imprisoned without charge for up to 24 hours or more.

The existence and development of internment camps are solely intended to be used to round up en masse and imprison 'political dissidents' (anyone who isn't prepared to lick government boots) after a simulated tactical nuke or biological attack on a major US or European city.

P.S. Saving The World is easy, watch "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report" to know the government and media lie to us ALL the time, then check and newswires or The Alex Jones Radio Show for why. Then distribute copies of "TerrorStorm: A History of Government Sponsored Terrorism" on DVD or Google Video, and give everyone the option of waking up! NOW!!!

P.P.S. Check this out too while you still can!

Congress is pushing a law that would abandon the Internet's First Amendment -- a principle called Network Neutrality that prevents companies like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast from deciding which Web sites work best for you -- based on what site pays them the most.

Don't be fooled, we already pay a lot for everything - THAT's why they're so rich!

Don't be fooled into thinking that we shouldn't OWN the public "airwaves" - including the internet and bandwidth, those were the original rules for radio and television too. We can regulate them to ensure fair use for all - including "us" - while still allowing companies to handsomely profit.

Don't be fooled into thinking that there are "bandwidth" issues either, during the "telecom/internet bubble" they layed millions of miles of fibre optics - a tiny fraction of which is currently "lit". It's like having hundreds of highways available and charging us for more and for more toll roads right beside them: it's a joke.

Don't be fooled into thinking that this isn't a measure to control free speech too - the "flat fee" model works fine right now, and for a monthly pretty-penny gives us access to the entire world - which us unprecedented and awesome. What they are proposing is that each website would have to pay each service provider in each city or region or country a fee to get them to make their (our?) websites available to their internet subscribers.

Who can do that?


Who can't?


And millions of others trying to Save The World.

We have the chance to use G-d's gift to the World to help us learn from each other and trust each other, and to simply let big corporations fool us with their "logic" is stupid.

Please, pretty-pretty-pretty please, from now on use your own logic to see what's wrong and right from the best perspective for YOU AND YOUR COMMUNITY AND FRIENDS AND FAMILY, and what you can do about it...

Peace, (NOW!!!)
