NDAA – Wake-up America

After reading the first article by Dave Hodges, be sure to read the following article               authored by Devvy Kidd (Important).


By Dave Hodges  –  December 27, 2011  –  NewsWithViews.com

Unquestionably, Americans, who dare to speak out against the emerging military dictatorship within our country, will soon be taking up a new residence at your neighborhood FEMA camp.

Through the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), CONgress, complete with their 9% public approval rating, has declared war upon the American people.

Previously, I wrote an article in response to the intention of Congress to permit the military to indefinitely detain, without due process protections, American citizens for any reason, or for no reason whatsoever. In the previous article, I referenced the leaked memo from KBR manager, Bob Siefert, which was informing subcontractors to be prepared within 72 hours of notification to provide essential services to FEMA camps such as the installation of barbwire, blockades, personnel, food, water and sanitation services.

Subsequently, one of my readers, Richard Firth, bravely took the initiative to write to Siefert and asked him to explain his stated intentions in the leaked memo.

Below is the exchange between Wirth and Siefert along with my analysis.

Bob Siefert
Level with Public about \FEMA camps

Dear Mr. Siefert:

I am given to understand that KBR, a subsidiary of Halliburton, is in the process of activating the FEMA camps according to a leaked memo.  I and many others would like to know why these camps are being activated?

I look forward to your response.

Sincerely- Richard W. Firth

Mr. Siefert wasted no time in answering Mr. Firth’s concerns as he provided a hastily prepared same day response.

Dear Mr. Firth,

Thank you for asking about the truth concerning our search for subcontractors. First, KBR is not a subsidiary of Halliburton, and hasn’t been since April of 2007. KBR intends to respond to an upcoming Request for Proposal. FEMA is looking for companies that can set up temporary camps to house First Responders to natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, tornados, floods, etc. The services included in the KBR request for information are ones we cannot provide ourselves and will need companies who can react quickly enough to meet the FEMA goal of having a place for their responders to stay within 72 hours of a call up. The camps will be temporary in nature, and nothing is being “activated”. FEMA is trying to be proactive in preparing for timely responses if emergency responses are required.

I hope this answers your question.


Bob Siefert
Manager – Small Business

To summarize, KBR’s Siefert asserts that (1) the camps are temporary; (2) the camps are only being constructed for first responders who will be used in anticipated future natural disasters; and (3) the existing FEMA camps are not being activated.

Often in life, there is the stated reason for performing some action and then there is the real reason. Below are some key provisions which are part of the impetus for activating the FEMA camps which are contained in the Siefert KBR memo. [Link]

“The Continental US will be broken up into five regions as indicated in the map below Services” will be required in each State within each region.” (Author’s note) Interestingly, the South was also broken up into five military districts during the military occupation of the South during the Reconstruction Era following the Civil War.

“(Contractors will) Establish services listed below within 72 hours for initial set-up and respond within 24 hours for incremental services. This is a CONTINGENCY PROJECT and it should be stressed that lead times will be short with critical requirements due to the nature of emergency responses. Subcontractors must be flexible and able to handle multiple, shifting priorities in an emergency environment.”

Additionally, the Siefert memo disturbingly calls for the installation of fencing and wire used for large scale detention of prisoners.

“Subcontractors will mobilize, transport, erect, install and demobilize temporary fencing, barricades, and associated equipment according to federal, state and local laws, codes and manufacturer installation instructions. The Subcontractor shall be able to mobilize and deploy key personnel(s) within four (4) hours of NTP to meet with KBR Site Manager at the Responder Support Camp (RSC) site in order to finalize the site design plan and acquire site specific design requirements and layout. Number of linear footage:

“Approximately 2,300LF for a 301 person camp after 36 hours of NTP”
“Approximately 3,600LF for 1,000 person camp after 72 hours of NTP”

This sounds like FEMA camp activation to me. When a reasonable person compares Siefert’s original memo to his response to Mr. Firth’s inquiry, the latter is clearly a poorly and hastily orchestrated version of damage control because his original leaked memo was never meant to see the light of day. The KBR memo called for barricades, barbwire, food, water, sanitation, guards, etc. This is the material that prisons are made of, not temporary housing for first responders as Seifert alleges. Hastily staffed FEMA camp personnel would also fit the definition of first responders in the advent of widespread civil insurrection.

Google the term “FEMA camps,” look the photos, and ask yourself why first responders would be housed behind barbwire encampments where the wire is facing inward which is indicative of keeping people inside of an installation. Common sense dictates that first responders would not reside in prisons with armed guards and barbwire. Instead, they would be housed in tents as are forest fire fighters. It is clear that the FEMA camps are being activated and very soon they will be staffed by 100,000 new intern specialists currently being recruited by the Army [Link] and [Link].

It is an easy task to determine that KBR’s Bob Siefert and the truth are strangers on this issue. However, this Globalist-serving minion should not be the focal point of our attention. He is merely a useful idiot. Every freedom-loving American is now at risk for kidnapping, torture and execution thanks to the NDAA. The police are being federalized, FEMA camps are being activated, the Constitution is on the verge of extinction and Obama is poised to begin WWWIII as a pretext to usher in martial law and cement his control over us as our military dictator.

Many people think that their actions will not draw the watchful eye of our increasingly corrupt and dangerous government. Before some of you go back to the football game, take a look at the following groups that the government categorizes as domestic terrorists according to the Homeland Security inspired MIAC report:

Domestic terrorists support Ron Paul
Libertarians and Constitutionalists are domestic terrorists
Domestic terrorists don’t believe the official explanations for 9/11, Ruby Ridge, Waco and the Oklahoma City bombing.
Domestic terrorists oppose abortion and support gun rights.
Domestic terrorists are fearful of big government and espouse support for the Constitution
Domestic terrorists collect firearms and survivalist books.
Domestic terrorists are religious zealots, reading the book of Revelation, and speak of the second coming of Christ
Domestic terrorists grow their own food
Domestic terrorists proudly display bumper stickers in support of Constitutional rights
Returning military war veterans are domestic terrorists

This is a small sample of how the people who have hijacked our government view the average American. We are held in utter contempt and disdain.
Indeed, you are an endangered species and have been targeted for extinction. From the abovementioned list, you should see that there can be no further
fence sitting. It is 1935 and all of us are de facto Eastern European Jews whose futures consist of detention camps and worse. Have you ever asked yourself
why the FEMA camp episode from Jesse Ventura’s show is banned from rebroadcast and from appearing on other public venue sights?

Consider the following three quotes from some prominent globalists who are some of the puppeteers behind the coming abuse of the American people.

“The elderly are useless eaters” -Dr. Henry Kissinger

“A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” -Ted Turner, in an interview with Audubon magazine

“No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation.”
-David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations

Some articles are easy to write because the globalists expose themselves with their own words and this was surely the case with this article.

The clock is ticking and your neighbors are asleep. Roll up your sleeves and get to work; it is time to save the planet from the purveyors of this trickle down tyranny. 

Montanans Launch Recall of Senators Who Approved NDAA Military Detention – Updated



By: Devvy  –  December 26, 2011  –  NewsWithViews.com

The Internet has been literally burning up over the National Defense Authorization Act. Another monstrous bill with language that has produced headlines like: “Obama is going to ship Americans to Gitmo!!!” And, “Americans will be detained indefinitely in secret without due process!!!!” There is this dire prediction:

Storing 7 Days of Food Could Send You to Gitmo Indefinitely

“The real danger lies in the government’s definition of what a suspected terrorist is.

“According to Sen Rand Paul (R-KY): “We’re talking about American citizens who can be taken from the United States and sent to a camp at Guantanamo Bay and held indefinitely. There are laws on the books right now that characterize who might be a terrorist: someone missing fingers on their hands is a suspect, according to the Department of Justice. Someone who has guns, someone who has ammunition that is weatherproofed, someone who has more than seven days of food in their house can be considered a potential terrorist. If you are suspected because of these activities, do you want the government to have the ability to send you to Guantanamo Bay for indefinite detention?”

“Paul says this is why he and twelve other senators voted against the bill, because they saw the dangerous implications of this provision which was designed to give the military certain powers during the current conflict with al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.”

Not that the gangster administration under the usurper (Obama/Soetoro/Dunham) wouldn’t like to try something like that, but please remember Obama/Soetoro does not occupy the White House as he was never eligible to run for president; no one had the “right” to vote for him. Anyone charged under any bill he has signed into law has the full right to go after Obama. As a usurper, Barry has never had a shred of authority to sign any legislation into law.[1]

As for the Department of Justice, the Outlaws in the Congress have the clear authority to impeach Holder today and immediately pass legislation to stop any attempt to round up Americans. With enough votes they can override a veto by the fraud in the White House. They also have the power to pass legislation immediately which nullifies any definitions of a “suspected terrorist” put forth by the corrupt DOJ. Does anyone get constitutional militia yet?

Moving on. The two objectionable sections are: 1031 and 1032 in the Senate bill. Like so many others, I read those sections. There is a great deal of references to the Law of War. These united States of America are not at war with anyone. The last legal war was declared constitutionally by the U.S. Congress on Dec. 11, 1941. Since then, other names have been used to justify ignoring the U.S. Constituion: the Korean Conflict, Viet Nam Era. The illegal, grotesque invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and other “hot spots” are referred to as “overseas contingency operations”. Tragically, the American people have sat on their backsides cheering on the slaughter and carnage.

Here is one article about the Senate bill:  Senate Passes Controversial Defense Bill

“According to Firedoglake.com, sections 1031 and 1032 of the NDAA will:

1) Explicitly authorize the federal government to indefinitely imprison without charge or trial American citizens and others picked up inside and outside the United States;

(2) Mandate military detention of some civilians who would otherwise be outside of military control, including civilians picked up within the United States itself; and

(3) Transfer to the Department of Defense core prosecutorial, investigative, law enforcement, penal, and custodial authority and responsibility now held by the Department of Justice.

“AddictingInfo.org adds:

A provision of S. 1867, or the National Defense Authorization Act bill, written by Senators John McCain and Carl Levin, declares American soil a battlefield and allows the President and all future Chief Executives to order the military to arrest and detain American citizens, innocent or not, without charge or trial. In other words, if this bill passes and the President signs it, OWS protesters or any American could end up arrested and indefinitely locked up by the military without the guaranteed right to due process or a speedy trial.”

Okay. Let’s go look at the explicit language authorizing the federal government to “indefinitely imprison without charge or trial American citizens and others picked up inside and outside the United States;”

This is the language of the final Enrolled House bill – page 273:


(a) BRIEFINGS REQUIRED.—Beginning not later than March 1, 2012, the Secretary of Defense shall provide to the congressional defense committees quarterly briefings outlining Department of Defense counterterrorism operations and related activities involving
special operations forces.

(b) ELEMENTS.—Each briefing under subsection (a) shall include each of the following:

(1) A global update on activity within each geographic combatant command.
(2) An overview of authorities and legal issues including limitations.

Onto page 274:

(3) An outline of interagency activities and initiatives.
(4) Any other matters the Secretary considers appropriate.

Do you read anywhere in that section that authorizes the federal government to indefinitely imprison anyone, etc? I don’t.

How about Section 1031 in the final Enrolled Senate bill? Go to page 426:

Subtitle D—Detainee Matters


The applicable language begins on page 428:

(e) AUTHORITIES.—Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities, relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.

I don’t read anywhere in that sentence which explicitly states Americans will be rounded up without due process under the Bill of Rights. Do you?

A small number of outlaws in the Congress sent a letter objecting to language in the bill:

“Both the ACLU and Human Rights Watch point out that the final version does nothing to protect American citizens against indefinite detention.

“The sponsors of the bill monkeyed around with a few minor details, but all of the core dangers remain – the bill authorizes the president to order the military to indefinitely imprison without charge or trial American citizens and others found far from any battlefield, even in the United States itself,” said the ACLU’s Chris Anders.

“The latest version of the defense authorization bill does nothing to address the bill’s core problems – legislated indefinite detention without charge and the militarization of law enforcement,” concurred HRW’s Andrea Prasow.

“Proponent of the legislation Senator Lindsay Graham ironically summed up the nightmare scenario the bill will codify into law – the complete evisceration of all Constitutional protections for U.S. citizens.

“It is not unfair to make an American citizen account for the fact that they decided to help Al Qaeda to kill us all and hold them as long as it takes to find intelligence about what may be coming next,” remarked Graham. “And when they say, ‘I want my lawyer,’ you tell them, ‘Shut up. You don’t get a lawyer.’”

Those of us who follow the outlaws out in DC know Lindsay Graham is about as close to sewer waste as you can get. However, I don’t seem to be able to find the text in either the final enrolled House or Senate bills that explicitly says U.S. citizens will be indefinitely detained without charge.

Now, I’m not a lawyer, but I have been reading bills from both the state houses and Congress going on two decades. In both bills (House & Senate), I found language that is plain and specific regarding U.S. citizens. In the original bill (S. 1867) here is the section on page 361 which deals with detainees and U.S. citizens:

SEC. 1032. REQUIREMENT FOR MILITARY CUSTODY continues over to page 362:
You can read them, but no where in that final bill do I see any language in those two sections regarding rounding up U.S. citizens and shipping them off to Gitmo or anywhere else.

(1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS. The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.

Unless I’m missing something, that subprovision says detention by military does not apply to U.S. citizens. Words have meaning in the law and that sentence appears to be easily read. That language remains in the final bill (Enrolled):

Again, page 428 begins section 1032, but here is page 430:


10 (1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS.—The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.

Now over to the House. The full text of the bill passed by the House (Enrolled Bill):

H.R.1540 – National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012
Page 265:


(e) AUTHORITIES.—Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United

At this link is the Congressional Record for December 12, 2011, beginning on page H8356; the day after the final vote on House bill 1540. Scroll down to page 81 (H8436) on your screen and see this under Sec. 1022:



(1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS.—The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.

The final enrolled version by the House does contain a Section 1031: Counterterrorism operational briefing requirement. (Begins on page 273). It also contains a Section 1032:


Again, the language is clear as to who could be detained in both bills. Not U.S. citizens – or did I miss something? If I did and the words ‘does not’ doesn’t
mean does not, please let me know. I hate all these massive bills myself and we have to continue to be vigilant 24/7 when it comes to the miscreants in the
Outlaw Congress. I don’t trust any of them. I just want to make sure we’re not getting worked up over some provisions in a bill that attacks our God given
rights that doesn’t appear to be there.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

8 Responses to NDAA – Wake-up America

  1. whocares811 says:

    There seems to be literally thousands of posts on YouTube about people being frightened almost to death of the NDAA, and many of the videos are saying that $662 billion has been allocated for FEMA (alone). I have not found anything like that in my scanning of the bill’s text. Am I correct in surmising that the NDAA is harmless to 99.9% of all U.S. citizens (except for those of us who object to so much of our tax dollars going to the military, that is)?

    • Ask Marion says:

      Here is some additional information:

      Check out Patriot’s Lament

      H.R. 3166: Enemy Expatriation Act – Breathe a sigh of relief! They weren’t telling us lies after all. The NDAA won’t allow for indefinite detention of American citizens…no no no, you silly little Americans.

      You will no longer be a Citizen!!!

      H.R. 3166

      Seems to me they are closing any loopholes they might have missed in the NDAA.

      This bill is one to watch, and we will be.

      Arctic Patriot has a good post on this with some information of the sponsors of this bill, folks that could use a little verbal wake up calls from us.

      Sealing the Deal

      H.R. 3166: Enemy Expatriation Act – 112th Congress: 2011-2012

      To add engaging in or supporting hostilities against the United States to the list of acts for which United States nationals would lose their nationality.
      Sponsor: Rep. Charles Dent [R-PA15]

      Status: This bill is in the first step in the legislative process. Explanation: Introduced bills and resolutions first go to committees that deliberate, investigate, and revise them before they go to general debate. The majority of bills and resolutions never make it out of committee. [Last Updated: Dec 9, 2011 6:17AM]

      US citizens would be stripped of their American citizenship. Stripped of citizenship, all bets and pretenses of protection are off. This bill will most likely make it to signature if it gets out of committee. It’s sponsors are currently 75% Republican.
