Civil Action Number 76-H-667
This is William R. Pabst. My address is 1434 West Alabama Street, Houston,
Texas, 77006. My telephone number is area code 713 521-9896. This is my 1979
updated report on the concentration camp program of the Department of
Defense of the United States.
On April 20, 1976, after a rapid and thorough investigation, I filed suit on
behalf of the People of the United States against various personages that
had a key part in a conspiratorial program to do away with the United States
as we know it. This is a progress report to you, the plaintiffs, the People
of the United States.
The civil action number is 76-H-667.
It is entitled,
"Complaint Against the Concentration Camp Program of the Dept. of Defense".
It was filed in the U.S. District Court for the southern district of Texas,
The judge responsible for the case was Judge Carl Beau
Chapter 1 - A NATIONAL EMERGENCY
You have no doubt heard the story:
Once upon a time, under the Nazi regime
in Germany, a man worked on an assembly line in a baby carriage factory. His
wife was going to have a baby, but the Nazi government would not let anybody
buy a baby carriage.
The man decided he would secretly collect one part from
each department and assemble the carriage himself. When this was done he and
his wife gathered up the pieces and assembled it. When they were finished
they did not have a baby carriage; they had a machine gun.
And that is exactly the situation that I am going to present to you at this
Center for the Study for Democratic Institutions recently
completed a proposed constitution for the "Newstates of America". The Center
is Rockefeller funded. To give you an indication of the type of constitution
proposed, the term "national emergency" is mentioned 134 times. The document
did not have a Bill of Rights and the right to own arms was taken away.
the same time, House Concurrent Resolution #28 awaited for calling a
constitutional convention on or before July 4, 1976.
The presiding officer of such are event would have been
Vice President and president pro tem of the Senate. This particular
resolution awaited in committee.
Obviously money would not be spent on these
massive programs unless there would be the chance for the actual
implementation of such a scheme.
However, in case the American people do not voluntarily adopt a new
constitution less troublesome to those who desire dictatorship, there is
Executive Order #11490, which will include its predecessors when it is cited
herein. The Executive Order authorizes the secretaries of the various
agencies to prepare for any "national emergency" type situation; including,
but not limited to, those specified in the Executive Order itself.
read the Order, there is nothing at all left to the imagination. For any
conceivable pretext, a national emergency may be declared based upon this
frightening decree, dated October 1969. The Order itself was prefaced in
March of 1969 by another Executive Order which established the federal
regions and their capitals.
All the departments of the government were
involved, including the Law Enforcement and Health, Education and Welfare.
Congressman Larry McDonald has revealed to Congress that various guerrilla
and terrorist groups were being financed by the federal government. If they
(the terrorist groups) actually began in search of activities, Executive
Order #11490 would be activated.
But as mentioned previously, if you will read Executive Order #11490, you
will see that a "national emergency" may be declared for any conceivable
pretext whatsoever. If the Order itself were activated, here is what would
happen. The next day you and your family would be standing in front of your
local post office with your neighbors; the front doors bursting with
block-long lines of people waiting to be registered.
After waiting in line
with your family for hours, you finally get channeled through the doors.
Once inside, you overhear the postal clerk with his sidearm on telling a
"Look there is nothing I can do. The truck behind the
building will take you to a work camp where you have been assigned.
Your wife has been assigned to a factory and there's nothing I can do."
your son or daughter looks up at you with a quivering voice and asks,
why are we here?"
Chapter 2 - IMPLEMENTING THE NEW GOVERNMENT
There's much more to life in a "free country" than paying your mortgage. You
have to be aware of what is going on and act accordingly and participate in
government; that is, get involved.
Examine the organization chart on
Executive Order #11490 to discover how we have all helped finance (through
our tax dollars) the mechanics of the overthrow of our Constitution.
Executive Order #11490 designates certain authorities to the
Preparedness, which in turn designates authority to the various departments
of the federal government.
If the Order were implemented, the Post Office Department would be
responsible for a national registration.
The State Department would be
responsible for the protection of the United Nations personnel or property
and prevention of escape from the United States.
The Department of Defense
would be responsible for its expropriation of industry; direction of service
and national production system; control of censorship; and communication
expropriation of non- industrial facilities.
The Commerce Department would be responsible for expropriation, selection
and international distribution of commodities (which would be the actual
looting of the United States), census information and human resources.
The Treasury Department would be responsible for collection of cash and
non-cash items and the recreation of evidence of assets and liabilities.
Justice Department would have concurrent responsibility with the Department
for prevention of escape from the U.S.
for replenishing the
stockpile of narcotics
for a national police force; for correctional and
for mass feeding and housing of prisoners
for use of prisoners to augment
manpower which would be slave labor
The Federal Bank (which is not a FEDERAL bank) would be responsible for
regulation of withdrawal of currency.
The General Services Administration would be responsible for confiscation of
private property for government use. Health Education and Welfare would be
responsible for nationalization of education (which the Department of
Education has already done), health services, hospitals and mental
The Labor Department would be responsible for recruiting
manpower; referring manpower; and allocating manpower so each particular
person that was registered at the post office in this regional registration
would be told where be (or she) was going to work.
Housing & Urban
Development would be responsible for transfer of persons to temporary or
permanent housing in regional emergency planning and cooperation.
Transportation Department is responsible for emergency enforcement and
control and movement of passengers and the emergency operation of the
There are two specific agencies here that we need to look at and to keep in
those two agencies are related to the Department of Defense.
military departments are part of the Department of Defense.
Under it, we
Secretary of Army
Chief of Staff
Deputy Chief of Staff of
Personnel and law enforcement
U.S. Army's forces command
Army Reserve & National Guard
And under that we have the four armies
dividing up the United States.
Under the Fifth Army we have the provost
marshal, who is directly connected to the Deputy Chief of Staff for law
enforcement personnel. Under the provost marshal for the Fifth Army we have
the 300 Military Police Prisoner-of-War Command at Livonia, Michigan.
At this point I quote from retired Admiral Elmo Zumwalt's book 'On Watch':
Henry Kissinger: I believe the American people lack the will to do the
things necessary to achieve parity and to maintain maritime superiority. I
believe we must get the best deal we can in our negotiations before the
United States and the Soviet both perceive these changes and the balance
that occurs. When these perceptions are in agreement, and both sides know
the U.S. is inferior, we must have gotten the best deal we can. Americans at
that time will not be happy that I have settled for second, but it will be
Zumwalt: Then why not take it to the American people? They will not accept
the decision to become second best while we are in a position of Gross
National product twice that of the U.S.S.R.
Kissinger: That's a question of judgment. I judge that we will not get their
support and if we seek it and tell the fact as we would have to, we would
lose our negotiating leverage with the Soviets.
Zumwalt: But isn't that the ultimate immorality in a democracy; to make a
decision for the people of such importance without consulting them?
Kissinger: Perhaps, but I doubt that there are 1 million who could even
understand the issue.
Zumwalt: Even if that presumption is correct, those 1 million can influence
the opinions of the majority of the people. I believe it is my duty to take
the other course.
Kissinger: You should take care, lest your words result in a reduction in
the Navy budget.
So we see what the intention of the State Department is regarding the
On Dec. 30, 1975, the California National Guard
announced in a press release (which I have) that the state's Military Police
battalions were organized and trained to provide immediate response to
virtually every civil and man-made disaster, as well as to assist law
enforcement officers in emergency situations; to carry out their law
enforcement as well as their military mission.
When I asked four of the
defendants in this case for their mission statement they did not provide it,
although they say it is public information.
The training spoken of for the California National Guard covers such
subjects as dealing with individual civilians/civil population, detention
procedures, citizen's rights, and similar matters. And you know as well as I
do that when there is
Martial Law, or Martial Rule, citizens have no right,
because the Constitution is preempted.
Even the uniforms of the National
Guards who participate in this program are different from the regular
uniforms. Army spokesmen will not reveal more about the uniforms, but the
Los Angeles Sheriff's Department paramilitary unit, who have received this
training have army fatigues dyed black for their uniforms.
A further fact is the disaster preparedness plan for the Marine Corps Supply
Center in Barstow, California. Quoting from that document:
Under the Constitution and the laws of the United States, the preservation
of law and order is the responsibility of local and state government. And
the authority to maintain the peace and enforce the law is invested in the
authority of those governments.
There are specific exceptions to the above concept. One of these pertains to
federal intervention to civil disturbances in certain situations.
commanders are deemed to have the inherent authority to take any measure
reasonably necessary for the protection of life and property in the event of
a sudden unexpected public calamity which disrupts the normal process of
government and presents an emergency so eminent as to make it dangerous to
await instructions from appropriate authorities. This includes law
enforcement duties. The manual mentions something called "Garden Plot
Forces" which we will discuss at length in a few minutes.
Don Bell (who writes a weekly report) reported on July 25, 1975 that in May
of 1975 the 303 Civil Affairs group of the U.S. Army Reserves in Kearny, New
Jersey conducted an exercise to sharpen plans for a military takeover of the
According to Colonel Frances Clart they had conducted
similar studies on how to seize municipal and county government over the
past few years.
But this was the first time they had studied STATE
government. Such units were trained during World War II to operate captured
governments. We never had federal troops training to take over government in
the United States. When local violence or catastrophe struck, the National
Guard, under command of the governor, went into action.
This is definitely
not the situation at this time.
Chapter 3 - CONTROLLING THE MASSES
On February 16, 1975, in the 'San Gabriel Valley Tribune' it was reported
that the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration, funded by the Department
of Justice, and the Police Foundation, funded by the Ford Foundation, are
prime movers toward implementing a national police force.
contends they support local police agencies. The total program involves
military units that have the function of taking over the administration of
local and state governments. That program is "Operation Cable Splicer" by
Army civil affairs groups, a sub-plan of "Operation Garden Plot" (the
Martial law program).
The method by which the national police concept is being presented to the
public has changed. It was first disguised under the cover of protection
against civil disturbances.
This program was as follows:
Keep the people from gathering in the
Isolate and neutralize the revolution's
Dispersal of crowds and demonstrators
This is followed by successful prosecution in order to:
Validate the action of the police
Deny the arrestee's propaganda materials
Deny them the opportunity to recover money damages against the police for
Let me quote for you the scenario which was developed for Cable Splicer One,
Two and Three to justify the needs for dealing with civil disturbances:
Phase One - an arrest and shooting
provoke crowd unrest and threats against public officials and a riot
begins to form
Phase Two - police vehicles are
ambushed, various attempted assassinations of public officials
occur, destruction and raiding of armories occur, and thousands of
people begin to gather and local police lose control
Phase Three - increased movement of rioters and the crowds must be dispersed
before they become sympathetic with the rioters. The National Guard and the
local police lose control"
This scenario provides for an orderly transition from state to federal
The Deputy Attorney General of California commented at a Cable
Splicer Three conference that anyone who attacks the State, even verbally,
becomes a revolutionary and an enemy by definition. They are the enemy and
must be destroyed. This program was taught in almost every state west of the
Mississippi River and included as participants local active military,
reserve military and civilian police.
The course name was "Civil Emergency
The official explanation that was to be given if any
questions were asked about the program was:
"This activity is a continuous,
joint law enforcement-military liaison effort and a continuation of
coordination established last year."
In 1976, the 'Oakland Tribune' carried the most complete explanation of what
is planned. It is reported in its entirety in the 'National Chronicle' which
added an analysis to the story. (The 'Oakland Tribune's editor died suddenly
after the story was published.)
And I quote:
Last Saturday the California National Guard unveiled a new
Assistance Force, L.E.A.F., a specially trained and outfitted Military
Police Unit, whose members will serve as shock-troops in the state's war
against political protesters and demonstrators.
I saw a full-dress exhibition of what the California National Guard has
planned for the next American revolution. Helicopters, SWAT teams, civilian
military policemen in jack boots and helmets, twelve-gauge shotguns,.38
and.45 caliber pistols, radios, walkie talkies, and electrically-controlled
intelligence centers wired for instant communications with any police force
in the state.
L.E.A.F. is a 1,000 member unit put together this year to handle unique law
enforcement problems such as mass civil disobedience, protest demonstrations
and riots. In other words, breaking heads and taking names.
L.E.A.F. has the
support of Governor Brown, a quarter-million dollars worth of grants from
the federal government, and no public opposition from civil liberties
For all its ineptitude however, L.E.A.F. has a frightening possibility from
a civil liberty standpoint. It is a direct product of the California "Cable
Splicer" conferences - a series of high-level secret meetings between
government officials, law enforcement officers and military planners held
during the late '60s and early '70s.
The meetings were held as late as 1975
so far, as many public records show. These were the conferences which
Counter-Spy magazine had identified as California's "Garden Plot Sub-plan".
Gray Davis - Gov. Brown's right hand man - says L.E.A.F. is to assist
civil police, not to replace them.
"Civilians could expect a
civilian type law enforcement rather than what is commonly known as Martial
Despite this assurance, L.E.A.F.'s exercises look disturbingly like
the military coup described in the novel, Seven Days In May.
L.E.A.F. soldiers with nightstick's stood at intersections, stopping cars
with suspicious occupants, checking I.D. cards and generally intimidating
onlookers with their SWAT style uniforms, their sidearms and helmets.
Perhaps more ominously, several participants in the role-playing exercises
Saturday admitted that even under simulated pressure there has already been
a number of incidents where the L.E.A.F. troops used excessive force to
quell disturbances - even though their orders forbade it.
Former L.E.A.F. administrator, Charles Ross Dovan (phonetic spelling), is on
record as having stated that local law enforcement has failed and must be
replaced by a national police force.
Patrick Murphy, the administrator of
the Police Foundation, states,
"I have no fear of a national police force.
Our 40,000 police departments are not sacred."
Ex-Attorney General William
Saxby warned that if we can go on as we are, crime will invade us and the
national police will take over.
For the policemen who do not cooperate and still want to be policemen, there
is the program of Contemporary Research, Inc., an organization of
psychologists, sociologists, education specialists and economic experts, who
work toward a solution of many of today's social problems. The same
organization develops specialized computer programming for the new
world-wide military command and control system, as well as computer base
systems for law enforcement agencies at all levels of government.
The L.E.A.F. alone will receive over a billion dollars a year over the next
4 years, even though it has been ineffective against crime.
This is because
the L.E.A.F. is not geared to fighting crime; it's geared to developing a
system for takeover of the United States with the assistance of the
Department of Defense.
Chapter 4 - PLANS FOR A POLICE STATE
One of the programs the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (L.E.A.A.) works on
in its fight against crime is psycho-surgery.
If you don't cooperate with
their programs, you are merely operated on so that you will be as
cooperative as an adding machine. Or, the L.E.A.A. supports drug research
for the same purpose-to neurological sources violence. Hence, as an example,
if a law were passed whereby the ownership of firearms was declared to be
illegal, you would be placed in one of these programs if you did not
The L.E.A.A. control exercise (at the state's level) is from the
Office of Criminal Justice Planning of the Governor's Office. Here in Texas,
Mr. Robert C. Klowers is still the executive director in that office. But
all states have that particular department.
In May, 1975 the 'L.E.A.A. Newsletter' describes the function of one of its
organizations: the National Institute of Law Enforcement & Criminal Justice.
This organization funds something called the "United Nations Clearinghouse"
in Rome, Italy.
The function of that organization is, among other things,
the exchange of Criminal Justice System information with the Soviet Union.
And it goes without saying that we have nothing to learn from the Criminal
Justice System of the Soviet Union. These incredible projects are being
funded with our tax dollars.
The code name for these projects are: "Garden Plot" and "Cable Splicer".
An investigation was completed in November 1975 by 4 sources:
Conservative publication, 'American Challenge'
the leftist 'New Times'
foundation financed Fund for Investigative Journalism
Don Wood of the
trustworthy 'Ozark Sunbeam'
It involves the potential creation of a Police
State through the use of the Pentagon and its computerized intelligence
dossier (lodged in the Pentagon basement) of thousands of citizens by the
National Guard, state and local police departments, the L.E.A.A.,
plainclothes military forces, SWAT teams, and the Department of Justice.
Brigadier General J.L. Julienit (phonetic spelling), senior Army officer of
the Pentagon National Guard Bureau, has admitted,
"I know of no state that
did not have some form of these exercises within the last year."
Today the Cable Splicer handbook is composed of 6 loose-leaf 3-ring binders
that are merely an outline for the impending takeover and destruction of our
The Sixth Army used the term "Cable Splicer" for the name of
the operation, but it is not revealed the name of the operation in the other
military areas within the U.S.
On page 4, paragraph 10 on Public Information, the instructions state:
As a means to prevent adverse publicity or misleading psychological effects
in regard to coordinating, planning, and conducting this exercise, all
military participants involved will perform such duties in civilian clothing
when exercise oriented activities are conducted at law enforcement
facilities. In the event inquiries are received regarding this exercise, the
response should be limited to identifying the activity as a continuous,
joint law enforcement military liaison effort and a continuation of
coordination established last year.
On page 6, security guidance is explained to the effect that if anybody asks
any questions, limit the information that is given out on the basis of it
being in the interest of "national interest" (security).
Now, in the festivities celebrating the success of completion of the
exercises, Attorney General Stanley R. Larsen, the commanding general of the
Sixth Army stated:
The most serious challenge facing all of us will be the challenge of
discharging our legitimate responsibilities. For a significant portion of a
society at large is likely to regard us with suspicion and question, even
challenge our authority on the basic assumption of our profession. Part of
this challenge we must be prepared to deal with; a potentially dangerous
portion of our society which, in truth, could well become the domestic
The manual includes instructions on operation of confinement facilities,
handling and processing prisoners; including searching, transporting,
feeding, housing and handling of the special class of persons called
The plan also specifically includes a proposition for
confiscation of privately-owned weapons and ammunition.
Chapter 5 - PREPARING TO TAKE PRISONERS
The Army has over 350 separate record centers containing substantial
information on civilian political activities.
Virtually every major army unit has its own set aside from this. The Fifth
Army of San Antonio has over 100,000 files of its own.
The overall operation
command post is a domestic room at the Pentagon. There are 25 million card
on individuals and 760,000 on organizations held by the Defense Central
Index of investigations alone. And this information includes political,
sociological, economic and psychological profiles. All this type of
information on 25 million Americans.
Since 1970 local county and state police forces all over the country have
undertaken crash programs to install various kinds of computerized
information systems. A large portion of this is being paid for by the Law
Enforcement Assistance Administration. Beginning in 1970, Congress and the
Joint Chiefs of Staff ordered the destruction of all these data banks, but
they were not destroyed.
All the outlawed collection is now located at Mt. Weathey, Clark County, West Virginia and similar Pentagon facilities
designed as adjuncts to the president's emergency powers under the Executive
The cadre of specialized persons to enforce this plan are found in the U.S.
Army Reserves Military Police POW Command at Livonia, Michigan.
(phonetic spelling) of the 300th Military Police POW Command at Livonia told
me, when I called him from the Federal Information Center at Houston, that
the camps in the Command were for foreign prisoners of war and for,

I asked him if enemies of the United States included
He became angry, wouldn't deny it and referred me to a very
sinister individual at the Army Reserve facility here at Houston who I
talked to; who explained to me that the prisoners were called "inventory"
and "internees". He would not deny that the camps were for U.S. citizens.
I called the Pentagon, spoke with the defendant there, and then with the
provost marshal for the Fifth Army, and do you know what? Not one of these
persons would deny that the system was for U.S. citizens.
marshal for the Fifth Army, when I mentioned the names of all the camp
"Well at least you've got that right."
The names of the detention facilities that I gave him were a list that I had
acquired from the 'Ozark Sunbeam'. That list of names was the same list of
facilities designated under the old Detention Act of 1950 as "emergency
But there is only one problem: That act was supposed to
have been repealed in 1971. After some research, I found out what the
One Congressman, when the hearings were held for the repeal of
the Emergency Detention Act, mentioned that there are 17 other bits of law
that provided for the same thing. So it didn't matter whether they ever
repealed the Emergency Detention Act. The public was in fact tricked by the
Congress of the United States!
Here are the designated sites:
Tucked away in the Appalachian Mountains of
central Pennsylvania is a bustling town of approx. 10,000 people. Fifteen to
twenty years ago it was a sleepy village of 400.
Allanwood, Pennsylvania is
linked to New York City by Interstate U.S. 80. It takes up approximately 400
acres and is surrounded by a 10-foot barbed-wire fence. It now holds
approximately 300 minimum security prisoners to keep it in shape. It could
hold 12,000 people from one day to the next.
Thirty miles from Oklahoma City on U.S. 66 is El Reno, Oklahoma with an
approximate population of 12,000. Due west, 6 miles from tow, almost in
sight of U.S. 66 is a complex of buildings which could pass for a small
school. However, the facility is overshadowed by a guard house which appears
to be something like airport control tower, except that it's manned by a
vigilant, uniformed guard. This is a federal prison camp or detention
center. These camps are all located near super-highways or near railroad
tracks or both.
The federal prison camp at Florence, Arizona could hold 3,500 prisoners. It
is presently kept in condition by approximately 400 legally convicted
Wickenberg, Arizona is famous for its municipal airport, which
was once government-owned. It is now occupied by a private party. It is
rumored to be capable of being taken back by the federal government without
Now there are a couple other of these facilities which probably exist under
the same arrangements.
This particular rumor has existed for about 9 or 10
years. The only way it can actually be established is by looking at the
local contract for the Wickenberg Municipal Airport itself and the parties
that have possession of it.
As I mentioned previously, these names were ratified by the provost marshal
of the Fifth Army who is in charge of the 300th Military Police POW Command.
He is the one who verified them.
He said, as I mentioned before,
least you've got that right."
Some of the locations are:
Tool Lake in California, now in private hands. It
can be retaken without notice.
Mill Point, West Virginia. I couldn't find a
thing on Mill Point, but in that area we have all kinds of prisons
Alderson, W.V., a women's federal reformatory
Lewisburg, W.V., a federal
Greenville, S.C. in Greenville County is now occupied by the State
Youthful Offenders Division. Even that is a mystery to the people of that
At Montgomery, Alabama we have a federal civilian prison camp at Maxwell Air
Now does that sound right?
There's one at Tucson, Arizona, David
Munson Air Base. In Alaska we have Elmendorf at Eielson Air Force Base.
And that brings us to a facility in Florida called Avon Park, Florida. I
sent a representative to see what was there. He found the Avon Park Bombing
and Gunnery Range, which is also listed as the Avon Park Correctional
Institute. No one is permitted entrance and probably there is no over flight
permitted because it is a bombing and gunnery range. This was one of the
places ratified by the provost marshal of the Fifth Army.
In 1976, as well as on March 20, 1979, I went to the Sheriff's Department in
Houston to see if our local Sheriff had been infiltrated by these plans.
Well, it appears so.
I was put in contact with a Lt. Kiljan (phonetic
spelling) who is in charge of some secret unit in the department. I asked
him if be had participated in military training or in training with military
personnel here in the Sheriff's Department.
He denied it, and when I asked
him if be would testify so under oath he became angry and stated,
just an ordinary citizen. I don't have to tell you anything."
discovered that Lt. Kiljan is the ex-director of the Houston branch office
of the U.S. Secret Service.
Now where does his money come from? The area is
administered by the Houston- Galveston Area Council.
In this regional government plan, each federal region is divided into state
clearinghouses, and each state clearinghouse is divided into area
clearinghouses. And for our area we have the Houston-Galveston Area
It serves as a conduit for federal funds in two major areas:
Most everybody thinks this organization (the Houston-Galveston area Council)
is for the development of the area; the geographical area here in Houston.
It is not. It is for the development of L.E.A.A. and H.E.W. projects. Now
this finds its counterpart in every community across the U.S.
for these agencies a liaison for intergovernmental communications,
interaction and coordination.

I examined their projects to see what they were doing.
government program distributes federal funds for two major purposes:
Radio hookups between every police
agency in the state to Fort Sam Houston
Mental health programs, including
programs for the mentally ill having priority of beds and hospitals
Another interesting fact to consider is that in the Pine Bluff Arkansas
Arsenal "B-Z" is stored.
It's a nerve gas which creates sleepiness,
dizziness, stupor, and the incapacity to move about. According to the
Associated Press, the agent can be sprayed by aerosol, injected or sprayed
over large areas by a bomb. The Military has admitted that one potential use
of the gas is for civilian control. So whatever they planned, they've also
planned a way for you to go to your destination in a tranquil state of mind.
H.E.W., by law, is operated in conjunction with the United Nations through
the World Health Organization.
Back in 1948, the International Congress on
Mental Health, a U.N. organization, declared in its pamphlet "Mental
Health and World Citizenship" that,
Prejudice, hostility or excessive nationalism may become deeply imbedded in
the developing personality without awareness on part of the individual
concerned. In order to be effective, efforts of changing individual must be
appropriate to the successive stages of the unfolding personality. While in
a case of a group of society, change will be strongly resisted unless an
attitude of acceptance has first been engendered.
Principles of Mental health cannot be successfully furthered in any society
unless there is progressive acceptance of the concept of world
Programs for social change to be effective require a joint effort of
psychiatrists and social scientist, working together in cooperation with
statesmen, administrators and others in positions of responsibility.
The three phases of the development are:
Mental hospitals for segregation, care
and protection of persons of unsound minds
Community Mental Health Care Centers, so
that persons may be treated in their own neighborhood
Child Care Centers for dealing with early difficulties of nationalism in
a child's life
Two years earlier, Major General G.B.
Chisholm, Deputy Minister of Health in Canada, who later became director
United Nations World Health Organization (WHO), explained:
"Self defense may involve a neurotic reaction when it means defending one's
own excessive material wealth from others who are in great need. This
altitude leads to war..."
So his solution to the problem is: Let's redistribute the wealth among
Further, the reinterpretation and eventual eradication of the individual's
concept of right and wrong which has been the basis of child training are
the belated objectives of practically all effective psychotherapies.
we digress even further, to Buria (phonetic spelling), the director of the
Soviet Secret Police in the 1930's, we see he explained the communist
political strategy through the use of "mental healing" of psychiatry:
Psycho-politics is the art and science of asserting and of maintaining a
dominion over the thoughts and loyalties of individuals, officers, bureaus,
and masses, and the effecting of the conquest of enemy nations through
mental healing. You must work... until every teacher of psychology
unknowingly or knowingly teaching only communistic doctrine under the guise
If you look at the Russian manual of instruction
of psycho- political warfare, we see in chapter 9:
Psycho-political operations should at all times be alert to the
opportunities to organize for the betterment of the community mental health
Now, under the new national Mental Health program at this moment there are
more than 600 of these community mental health centers across the United
The whole thing was promoted by Dr. Stanley F. Yoles (phonetic
spelling), who was the director of the National Institute of Mental Health
And he stated back then, that the newest trend in treating mental
illness is care at local health care centers where the patient is not
isolated from his (or her) family and friends. They have been working on
this program for 46 years publicly. Now across the U.S. through your tax
dollars you have 603 centers (to be exact); Community Health Centers that
are all part of this program.
And this is how they are part of the program (it has already happened):
the mid-1950s, there were set into motion an interesting chain of events.
About 1956 the Alaska Mental Health Bill was proposed and later passed.
granted approximately 12 million dollars, and 1 million acres of public land
to Alaska so that it could develop its own mental health program. Now this
was a little abnormal since Alaska only had a little over 400 people who
were classified as mentally ill!
After the bill was passed, Alaska passed its own enabling legislation to get
into the mental health business.
They started by adopting the essential
elements of the Public Health Service Draft Act on the hospitalization of
the mentally ill in the old "Interstate Compact on Mental Health", now
Uniform Mental Health Act.
There were no provisions for jury
trial in it or anything else. You would just be picked up and taken to the
Alaskan-Siberian Asylum incommunicado and the state would also confiscate
all of your personal and real property! And they actually tried to do it in
1954 in the case of Ford vs. Milinak (State Treasurer R. Budd Dwyer -
Suicide, Alaska Mental Health Bill "U.M.H.A. Ford V. Milinak"), which declared the
act as adopted in another state (Missouri) as unconstitutional.
But the act itself still exists, modified, but essentially in the same form,
the Uniform Mental Health Act to which approximately 6 states subscribe. And
in passing most State Constitutions, if you will check them from the period
of 1935, made a part of their constitution the practice of having a person
submit to a 90-day mental examination to determine his (or her) sanity,
without any provisions for a trial by jury. This was part of the national
program at that time.
In this act, the governor could have anyone picked up and sent to the Mental
Health Institution in Alaska or elsewhere.
The result as rumors back in the
'50s, were that there was in fact a sinister, Frankenstein-type mental
health prison in Alaska. I wrote to Alaska (the officials that is) and asked
them for a description of the land of 1 million acres that they were
eligible to receive, under the Alaska Mental Health Act, were. And I also
asked them for a copy of the inventory they ran for their facilities back at
that same time.
Well, so far no answer. And probably, I will never receive
an answer without a court order.
But through the years, there was a spot in Alaska that was continually
referred to: Southeast of Fairbanks; southwest of Fairbanks; northwest of
Fairbanks; somewhere near Fairbanks.
Then I received information that a
pilot had flown over the area once and had his license revoked. And so, for
$1.85 each, I ordered the low-level navigation maps from the federal
government for Alaska and located the Alaska-Siberian Asylum for the
treatment of enemies of the United States.
It's right where rumor over the
past 20 years had placed it: Southwest of Fairbanks.
It stands out like a
sore thumb! It's the only one of that geometric configuration within the
sate of Alaska, and you will note a black line running up through Fairbanks
and down over near that area of the map.
That is the railroad that the
Department of Transportation would take the emergency operation of, under
the Executive Order, if the Executive Order went into effect. And H.E.W.
would be responsible for making a determination of whether or not you were
mentally disturbed because of your nationalistic tendencies, your love for
the United States, or your adherence to any political or religious doctrine.
But let's look a little further into the type of program that the L.E.A.A.
is paying for through the Department of Justice.
The Federal Bureau of
Prisons, located in the backwoods of North Carolina, near a tiny village
called Butner, is constructing a mammoth 42 acre research complex for
prisoners from throughout the East. Who will be sent for experiments to test
new behavioral programs and techniques? Target date for completion of the
entire system is ironically 1984.
And so, they're using right now, under the L.E.A.A. program, something
anectine (Phonetic spelling).
Punishment for troublesome behavior
within the prison is being done by drugs and shock, likely to be the most
selected examples of programs that have made use of anectine, a derivative
of South American
curare. Anectine was originally used as a beginning factor
to electro-convulsive shock.
Such shocks applied to the bead are so strong
they can break and graze bones under the strain of resulting muscle
contractions. Since anectine paralyzed the muscles without dampening
consciousness or the ability to feel pain, by first injecting the inmates
with it, researchers can turn up the voltage as high as they want without
cracking the inmates' skeleton when his body is thrown into convulsions by
What the anectine does, in short, is to simulate death within 30 to 40
seconds of injection. It brings on paralysis first with the small rapidly
moving muscles in the nose, fingers and eyes, and then in the diaphragm and
the cardiovascular system. As a result, the patient cannot move or breathe
and yet remains fully conscious, as though drowning and dying.
This is from the 1974 publication, 'Human
Chapter 7 - THE PEOPLE VS. THE CONSPIRATORS
The federal government answered my suit in June (1976) by filing an unsworn
general denial of everything that I had alleged.
I spoke with the assistant
U.S. Attorney in charge of the case and asked him if he had gone to the
trouble to call any of the parties mentioned in the suits. since I had
provided not only the addresses, but their telephone numbers to provide a
faster means of investigation. He said he had not. He had not even done a
minimal amount of investigation of the case, but yet he filed a denial of my
I filed a motion in the meantime to take the deposition of the person who
writes the training programs for the concentration camp guards, Mr. Richard Burrage, the 75th Maneuver Air Command at Army Reserve Center at Houston,
Texas, stating that in light of all the recent activity of government
agents, one of the agencies involved might attempt to murder this key
witness, the author of the training camp program. The federal Judge denied
my motion, stating that I had not quoted enough cases to him justifying my
However, he was also aware as that there were no cases existing on
this set of facts, but as you will see as I go along with this report, he
chose to ignore it.
I then made an agreement with the assistant U.S. Attorney to take the
deposition to Mr. Burrage. After I'd made the arrangements, the U.S.
Attorney refused to voluntarily go along with taking the deposition. It is
very difficult to find justice in our system of courts.
Law is usually practiced by the "buddy system", hence the court rules are
overlooked or not followed.
On July 20, a hearing was held at the magistrates of Norman Black U.S.
District Court in Houston. The courtroom was completely filled with
spectators. And although the news media had been contacted, no
representatives of the press were there. There is a news media blackout on
this matter here in Houston.
Brief oral arguments were presented.
The U.S. Attorney explained that I was
not the proper person to bring the suit because, although the free exercise
of my constitutional rights was threatened by the concentration camp program
as alleged, it did not constitute my injury. The magistrate was impressed
with the information I had thus far collected and stated that he would bring
it to the attention of the federal judge. The U.S. Attorney tried to have my
investigation of the case halted, but the magistrate would not go along that
far with a pre-arranged decision.
As an additional indication of what I was up against, the original hearing
was scheduled for 10:30 in the morning. However, the U.S. Attorney had
secretly had the time changed to 2:30 in the afternoon. The magistrate gave
the U.S. Attorney permission to file for motion to dismiss because he felt
that the concentration camp program, to be used for persons who exercise
their freedom of speech, did not present any injury.
Now, on July 23 I had placed in the 'Houston Post' and in the 'Houston
Chronicle' newspapers the following advertisement in the legal section.
"Solicitation for witnesses in Civil Action 78-H-667, Federal
District Court of Houston, People extemporal William Pabst vs. Gerald Ford
The action titled:
Complaint Against the Concentration Camp Program of the Dept. of Defense.
Attention: If you have participated in Operation Garden Plot, Operation
Cable Splicer, the 300th Military Police Prisoner of War Command, or the
Army Reserve Civil Affairs group, you may be involved in a program that
needs to be deposed for this suit. To give your testimony call or write;
(and here I placed my name address and telephone number).
As I previously mentioned, there is a news media blackout on the story here
Both newspapers refused to carry the ad. First at the 'Houston
Post'; I had to threaten them with a law suit to carry out the ad, even
though I was paying for it. And then at the 'Chronicle'; I had to meet with
the president and various vice presidents because a refusal from that paper
had come up from their own lawyers. Both newspapers finally carried it, but
only after two days of complaining.
The initial response of both papers was;
"We don't carry stories like that", and
"Don't you think that the people
planning the concentration camps have our best interests in mind?"
will hear for yourselves, the policies definitely do not reflect our best
The next event that occurred was that the U.S. Attorney filed a "Statement
of Authority", showing the reasons that he could find why I should not be
allowed to take depositions to get more information from the person who was
writing the concentration camp guard training program.
However, his brief
was completely filled with misquotes of the law from many cases. He'd
mention the case and then invent whatever the case should say. In my brief
to the court at this point, I notified the judge of the violation of the law
requiring honesty in such matters.
But the notification was ignored by the
judge, who apparently sanctioned this most dishonest of acts commonly known
as "quoting out of context".
Chapter 8 - THE GENEVA CONVENTION
My brief filed on August 27. On August 31, formal arguments were set.
new courtroom of the magistrate was almost filled again. However, no one
from the news media showed up for this hearing either. The few who were
contacted had been told not to go; they would lose their jobs.
At the hearing I introduced evidence that heretofore had never been
introduced in any court of law in the U.S. The U.S. Attorney had denied, you
will remember, everything in my suit without so much as even a tiny
investigation. So I introduced him to evidence the following letter from the
Department of the Army, Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff of Personnel,
signed by; I.B. Sergeant, Colonel G.S., Acting Director of Human Resources
On behalf of President Ford, I am replying to your letter 27 May, 1976,
regarding a news article in the Dallas Morning News.
As much as he would
like to, the president cannot reply personally to every communication he
receives. Therefore, he has asked the departments and agencies of the
federal government in those instances where they have special knowledge or
special authority under law.
For this reason your communication was forwarded to officials of the Dept.
of Defense. Within the Dept. of Defense, the Army is responsible for custody
and treatment of enemy prisoners of war and civilian internees as defined
under terms of the Geneva Convention of 1949. Therefore, the Army is
prepared to detain prisoners of war and detainees as defined in Article IV
of the 1949 Geneva Convention relative to the treatment of prisoners of war
and protection of civilian persons.
It is U.S. policy that its Armed Forces adhere to the provisions of
international law to set the example for other countries of the world to
follow and respecting the right and dignity of those who become victim of
It should be noted that the Army program is designed
for implementation during conditions of war between the U.S. and one or more
foreign countries. The Army had no plans nor does it maintain detention
camps to imprison American citizens during domestic crises.
The problem with this letter is that it's not true, and that's what I'm
going to discuss at this point.
First of all, in verifying the authenticity
of the claims in the letter, I checked the Geneva text and there is no
article in the Geneva Convention entitled as the letter states. There is,
however, on each of the classifications; "Protection of War Victims/Civilian
Persons" and a separate article on "Prisoners of War". That was the first
Then I turned to
Article IV of the Geneva Convention. That
article did not set up any requirements or authorizations for military units
of any type and does not even suggest it. Hence, the second discrepancy.
The next problem with the letter from President Ford's representative is
that it states that he prisoner of war guard program is set up for the
"conditions of war between the U.S. and one or more
Article III of the Geneva Convention reads
that the treaty applies to (and I am quoting):
"In case of an armed conflict
not of an international character, occurring within the territory of one of
the high contracting parties."
Obviously and armed conflict occurring within
one's own territory did not mean between one or more of the parties to the
treaty, especially if only one is involved. Now, the examples of this type
of conflict are: civil war, armed insurgency and guerrilla activities. In
other words, they're speaking of a domestic conflict.
An even more shocking item is found in the last pages of the 1949 Geneva
Convention under "Protection of War Victims/Civilian Persons".
You will find
the index card, the identification card, forms to be used for writing your
family, and everything necessary for the administration of a concentration
camp is contained in this treaty that the U.S. signed and ratified. Further,
if there is a conflict in the U.S. involving only the U.S. this convention
or treaty can go into operation; which includes the procedures for setting
up the concentration camps.
Article LXVIII of the Convention states (and I paraphrase):
If you commit an
offense that is solely intended to harm the occupying power, not harming the
life or limb of members of the occupying power, but merely talking against
such a force, such as the Martial Law situation, you can be imprisoned
provided that the duration of such imprisonment is proportional to he
Well, President Dwight Eisenhower didn't feel that
provision was strong enough.
So he had the following additions placed in the
treaty, which states:
"The U.S. reserves the right to impose the death
penalty in accordance with the provisions of Article LXVIII without regard
to whether the offenses referred to therein are punishable by death under
the law of the occupied territory at the time the occupation begins."
So not only can you be imprisoned for having exercised freedom of speech;
you can be put to death under the provisions of the Geneva Convention in
1949 for having exercised, or attempting to exercise, freedom of speech.
The next item that I introduced into evidence was a field manual:
"Civil Affairs Operation".
You will remember at the outset that I mentioned
Civil Affairs groups. Let me quote to you from that manual what one of the
functions of the Civil Affairs activities includes:
Item 4. Assumption of full or partial executive, legislative and judicial
authority over a country or area.
So let's see what a "country or area" is defined as in the same manual.
small towns and rural areas
municipalities of various population sizes
provinces or states
regions of national government
Nowhere in the manual does it exclude this program from being put into
effect right here in the United States.
As a matter of fact in Kearny, New
Jersey, the Civil Affairs group went into that area and practiced taking
over that governmental unit. And yet the Army in its letter of June
16-states that these programs are not for us. Yet they are practiced here in
the United States under conditions that can only occur here at home.
The study outline of field manual, FM 41-10 on page j-24 under "Penal
Institutions 1-B", you see there is a program on concentration camps and
labor camps-number, location and capacity. It is important to note that a
concentration camp and a labor camp are always located near each other, for
Again on page d-4 of the same manual you'll find a sample receipt for seized
property; a sample receipt written in English and containing terminology
applicable to only U.S. territory.
On page 8-2 of the same manual, under the heading "Tables of Organization
and Equipment", we find that there are 3 other organizations that would be
working along with the Civil Affairs operation:
the Chemical Service
the Composite Service Organization
the Psychological Operations
Organization, along with the various Civil Affairs organizations
In July of that year (1976), the following Civil Affairs groups met with the
following airborne groups at a staging area in Fort Chaffee, Arkansas. A
staging area is where military units meet before they go into action.
the 82nd Airborne and part of the 101st Airborne
the 32nd Civil
Affairs group of San Antonio, Texas headquarters
the 362nd Civil Affairs
brigade from Dallas, Texas
the 431st Civil Affairs company from Little Rock
the 306th Civil Affairs group, U.S. Army Reserves,
Fayetteville, Arkansas commanded by Lt. Colonel N. McQuire (phonetic
spelling) and William Highland
the 486th Civil Affairs company from Tulsa,
the 418th Civil Affairs company from Kansas City, MO.
Civil Affairs group from St. Louis, MO.
the 490th Civil Affairs group from
the 413th company from Hanlin, La
the 12th S.S. group, 2nd Battalion
They're ready to go into action.
The problem is as it appears they were
ready to take over the entire government of the United States as their
mission sets out.
One man who attended this staging area talked to a Civil
Affairs sergeant and asked him what his job was. The sergeant explained that
the civilians of this country will really be surprised some day when the
Civil Affairs groups begin to operate the government.
Now the Dept. of the Army still maintains that all this is not for the
United States, yet this training continues here for us. The evidence is
overwhelming; the plan exists for the imprisonment of millions of U.S.
citizens. And even through all this information was presented to the federal
magistrate, he still felt that no one was injured by such a plot.
On the 2nd day of September, 1976, the magistrate recommended to the federal
judge that the case be dismissed. And the sole basis for his reasoning to
dismiss was that we have to be actually physically injured before we can
maintain a law suit of this type.
He did not feel that although all this
active planning, preparation and training was going on, that any U.S. citizen
had been injured even though the citizen may fear exercising his or her
freedom for fear of being detained and imprisoned in a concentration camp at
a later date.
Chapter 9 - IGNORING THE CONSTITUTION
The case of Tatum B. Laird, heard before the Supreme Court in 1974, is a
case in point. It involved the Army intelligence collecting apparatus, which
was developing a list of names of persons who the Army felt were
The Supreme Court held that the making of lists of this type
did not of and by itself present any injuries. The minority opinion in that
case was that the injury in the case with a program such as this made people
afraid to use their freedom of speech for fear of being sent to jail for it.
But the majority did not buy that argument.
The difference between that case and this case although we also have the
computer program, is that we have something much further past that point;
the concentration camp guard program and the Civil Affairs program for the
taking over of all functions of our government. In light of that the federal
judge said that this is not an injury. As a matter of fact the U.S. Attorney
alleged that even if people were placed in concentration camps, if they were
all treated the same they would still not have the right to go to federal
On the 20th day of September, I filed a memorandum to notify the magistrate
and the federal judge that I had discovered that the federal government had
a program for a number of years to suspend our constitutional right of the
writ of habeas corpus.
This information substantiated the complaint. Habeas
corpus is the name of that legal instrument utilized to bring someone before
a judge when that person is being illegally imprisoned or detained so that
he (or she) may obtain his (or her) freedom. The Constitution states that
the writ of habeas corpus shall never be suspended.
I found the disturbing information in a report; 94-755, 94th Congress, 2nd
Session Senate, April 26th, 1976, entitled "Intelligence Activities and the
Rights of Americans Book II".
On page 17-d, entitled "First Amendment
Rights", the report states that more importantly,
surveillance activities in the aggregate, whether expressly intended to do
so, to deter the exercise of First Amendment rights by American citizens who
become aware of the government's domestic intelligence program."
Beginning on page 54 it is stated that, beginning in 1946, four years before
the Emergency Detention Act of 1950 was passed, the FBI advised the Attorney
General that it had secretly compiled a secret index of potentially
The Justice Dept. then made tentative plans for emergency
detention based on suspension of the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus.
Department officials deliberately avoided going to Congress.
Emergency Detention Act of 1950 was passed, it did not authorize the
suspension of the writ of habeas corpus. But shortly after passage of that
act according to a bureau document, Attorney General J.R. McGraft told the
FBI to disregard it and to proceed with the program as previously outlined.
A few sentences later on page 55 it states, "With the security index, use
broader standards to determine potential dangerousness than those described
in the statute." And unlike the act, Department plans provided for issuing a
master search warrant and a master arrest warrant. This is the center
importance: It is the same thing that I am alleging in federal court, yet
the magistrate chose to ignore these facts also.
We have government officials not only ignoring the will of Congress, but
doing the opposite of what the Constitution provides by planning illegally
for the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus. In addition, as mentioned
before, the master search warrant and the master arrest warrant are forms
fed into the computer, which print the names and addresses on them from the
tapes previously prepared by the intelligence-gathering program.
As you are arrested, your home will be searched and anything found there may
be confiscated. This program has existed since 1946 up to and including
1973, and without proper access to judicial discovery techniques, it can't
be determined whether the same plan now exists under the same name or under
another name right now.
This memorandum was filed on September 28 to make the court aware of the
danger that our rights of freedom of speech and lawful assembly are in. But
the court, on September 30, after this notification was received, dismissed
However, in keeping with the practice of federal courts in Houston
of actively participating in the obstruction of justice, I was not notified
of the dismissal until the 6th of October, which gave me just 2 working days
to submit any further motion in a 10-day period before time starts running
for the appeal.
What I have just said regarding the federal courts in Houston is not only my
opinion; the 'Houston Chronicle', surprisingly, published an extensive
document severely criticizing the federal court in Houston for making up
their own rules as they go along with the proceeding, as well as commenting
on the communist-like Supreme Court attitude of the judges and court
personnel. My experience here has been that the court has returned to me
almost every document I filed.
Then after a big argument they reaccept the
document, stating that they just made a mistake.
In reality, the Power
structure doesn't want these type of cases in any federal court.
Chapter 10 - SUMMARY OF EVIDENCE
On the 8th of October, I had submitted a request for finding the facts in
the filing which had been established by the evidence presented:
The 300th Military Police POW Command is located at Livonia, Mich.
The Dept. of the Army has stated that said Command exists per se the
Geneva Convention of 1949, a treaty of the U.S., Article IV thereof under
the title relative to the treatment of prisoners of war and protection of
No such title exists in the Geneva Convention per se.
There are separate titles, one which is; a. Multilateral Protection of
War Victims/Prisoners of War; b. Multilateral Protection of War
Nevertheless, Article IV of both titles does not provide for the creation
of any military programs for concentration camps.
Whether Mr. Fenren of the 300th Military Police POW Command has stated
that the purpose of the Command is for the detention of foreign prisoners of
war and enemies of the United States.
Further, Article III, concerning civilian persons, makes the treaty
applicable to conflicts occurring solely within the territory of the United
States that are not of an international character, which is capable of
including any type of conflict in its description whether it be civil war or
guerrilla activity or anything else. The text states:
In case of armed conflict not of an international character occurring in the
territory of one of the high contracting parties, each party to a conflict
shall be bound to apply to the minimum of the following provisions.
Dept. of the Army field manual FM41-10, Civil Affairs Operations of Civil
Affairs Organization, lists as one of its functions the assumption of full
or partial executive, legislative and judicial authority over a count or an
area and there is no specific exclusion of the United States as such a
country or area.
Said manual defines country along certain geographical population basis,
county, state regions and national government.
Said organization has in fact conducted practiced takeovers of local and
state governments in the continental United States, including but not
limited to the state of New Jersey.
Said organization includes in its study outline on page j-24 a section
on concentration camps and labor camps.
Said organization includes in it operations composite service operations
and psychological operations organizations.
Said psychological operation is working with the U.S. Public Health
Service, are prepared to operate any and all mental health facilities in the
United States as tools of repression against outspoken but nonviolent
political conduct of the United States citizens in conjunction with all the
above, which is to be used for the same purpose.
Further, the Dept. of Justice, in conjunction with this program, has had
plans for the suspension of writ of habeas corpus since the year of 1946;
has planned depriving persons being detained under this total program any
means for protection against tyrannical political repression.
The plaintiff requested that the court make findings of fact and draw
conclusions of law, consistent therewith as shown by the evidence on record
before the court.
The effect of this request is that the case must go back
to the district judge for further consideration. I mentioned that it
appeared that all this planning for concentration camps was to be directed
against anyone regardless of his political persuasion or his ideology who
exercised freedom of speech against the established power structure of
international bankers and multinational corporations.
But with Proposition
B-type movements threatening to reduce taxes throughout our nation, I
foresee an activation of emergency programs so that the parasites on the
federal take will continue to receive their checks.
Chapter 11 - ARE YOU ON THEIR LIST?
In the same Senate document, on intelligence activities on the right of
Americans referred to on pages 166 and 167, you will find that the federal
government has targeted its intelligence activities against one group of
On page 166 the first classification listed is rightists and
The first group on Page 167 on Army surveillance
Therefore, the groups of U.S. American citizens
considered to be the biggest enemy of the United States by the federal
government at this is the conservative patriot.
Although this information has been available since April of this year
(1979), no one has mentioned this incredible discovery that the federal
government considers the patriotic conservative as its greatest enemy.
have received all kinds of information regarding this case from all across
the United States.
Chapter 12 - THE PRICE OF APATHY
I obtained the 1945 report of the O.S.S. (office of Strategic Services), the
precursor of the C.I.A., 7th Army, William W. Quinn, Colonel G.F.C.A.C. of
the G2, on the liberation of Dachau, a concentration camp during the
liberation in Germany.
It contains many groups of information, but the
relevant portion of the report concerns itself with the section on the
townspeople. Quoting from his report, on why the people of this little town
didn't complain or didn't overthrow oppressors, but just continued to go
along and get along even though they lost their freedom in the process.
These words crop up and up again.
They are the rationalization of a man who
admits that he was a member of the Nazi party.
"I was forced to do so by
business reasons", they state.
We were lied to in every respect but they
admit they knew the camp existed. But they saw the work detail to the
inmates passing through the streets under guard, and in some instances the
S.S. behaved brutally even towards the townspeople.
When asked if they realized that within the last 3 months before the
liberation 13,000 men lost their lives within stone's throw of where the
people lived, they claimed they were shocked and surprised.
When asked if they never saw transports of dead and dying pass through he
streets along the railway, they referred only to the last one. They insist
that most of the trains came in at night and that they were sealed cars.
Did they never ask what was in the endless procession of cars that came in
full and always went out empty?
A typical reply was,
"We were told it was
all army material and booty from France."
It is established that anyone who stated that he saw only one train come in
the daytime was telling a flat lie. There are quite a few such people in
The analysis of the anti-Nazi element of the town:
The people knew what was going on in the
camp, even ten years prior to liberation
The town did a thriving business from
the concentration camp guard
Ninety percent are guilty and have
dabbed themselves with the blood of innocent human beings
The people are to blame for their cowardice; they were all too cowardly.
They didn't want to risk anything. And that was the way it was in all of
The conclusion of this report written on Dachau written in 1945 on the
liberation of the concentration camp applies today. The conclusion is as
If one is to attempt tremendous task and accept the terrible responsibility
of judging a whole town, assessing it in mass as to collect a guilt of
innocence of all its inhabitants for their complicity in committing this
most heinous of crimes, one would do well to remember the fearsome shadow
that hangs over everyone in this state in which crime has been incorporated
and called the government.
So you can see how the whole program is related here. My lawsuit was against
one single aspect of the total program: The enforcement arm of the
conspiracy. The people who make up the cadre that is going to occupy the
concentration camps where enemies of the United States will be placed.
Remember Solzhenitsyn's words in the 'Gulag Archipelago':
Resistance should have began right there but it did not begin. You aren't
gagged, you really can and you really ought to cry out that arrests are
being made on the strength of false accusations. If many such outcries had
been heard all over the city would arrests have no longer have been so easy.
They, the tyrants, can't work in the public eye. Those people who were so
apathetic, hoping that nothing was really wrong, that nothing would happen
to their persons and property, sat back and watched. The anarchists,
financed by multinational interests, looted and pillaged their country.
If you think that all that is necessary is to pay your house notes, to pay
your TV notes, to go vote when there is an election, and to stand back
during the rest of the year and watch as your country and way of life are
replaced by a system in which you will be a slave in a concentration camp,
you - not the conspirators - are guilty because you, by silent
acquiescence, invite tyranny and oppression.
And when you have to steal food to eat because our production is for foreign
use because the Dept. of Commerce, through
Executive Order 11490
predecessors, is responsible for international distribution of our
commodities, don't sit in the culvert hiding and eating and wondering what
happened: You made it all possible.
When your family is split up and spread across the United States to do slave
labor and you never see your loved ones again, it will be your fault: You
did nothing to prevent it.
Once we lose our freedom we are never going to
regain it. That is why we must stand together to prevent the loss of our
freedom as citizens of the United States.
Thank you very much.

Editor's Note: A little-known $385 million contract for Halliburton
subsidiary KBR to build detention facilities for "an emergency influx of
immigrants" is another step down the Bush administration's road toward
martial law, the writer says.
A Halliburton subsidiary has just received a $385 million
contract from the Department of Homeland Security to provide "temporary
detention and processing capabilities."
The contract - announced Jan. 24 by the engineering and
construction firm KBR - calls for preparing for "an emergency influx of immigrants, or to
support the rapid development of new programs" in the event of other
emergencies, such as "a natural disaster."
The release offered no details
about where Halliburton was to build these facilities, or when.
To date, some newspapers have worried that open-ended provisions in the
contract could lead to cost overruns, such as have occurred with KBR in
Iraq. A Homeland Security spokesperson has responded that this is a
"contingency contract" and that conceivably no centers might be built. But
almost no paper so far has discussed the possibility that detention centers
could be used to detain American citizens if the Bush administration were to
declare martial law.
For those who follow covert government operations abroad and at home, the
contract evoked ominous memories of Oliver North's controversial
"readiness exercise" in 1984.
This called for the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA) to round up and detain 400,000 imaginary
"refugees," in the context of "uncontrolled population movements" over the
Mexican border into the United States. North's activities raised civil
liberties concerns in both Congress and the Justice Department.
"Almost certainly this is preparation for a roundup after the next 9/11 for
Mid-Easterners, Muslims and possibly dissenters," says Daniel Ellsberg, a
former military analyst who in 1971 released the Pentagon Papers, the U.S.
military's account of its activities in Vietnam.
"They've already done this
on a smaller scale, with the 'special registration' detentions of immigrant
men from Muslim countries, and with Guantanamo."
Plans for detention facilities or camps have a long history, going back to
fears in the 1970s of a national uprising by black militants.
As Alonzo Chardy reported in the Miami Herald on July 5, 1987, an executive order for
continuity of government (COG) had been drafted in 1982 by FEMA head
The order called for "suspension of the Constitution" and
"declaration of martial law." The martial law portions of the plan were
outlined in a memo by Giuffrida's deputy, John Brinkerhoff.
In 1985, President Reagan signed National Security Decision Directive 188,
one of a series of directives that authorized continued planning for COG by
a private parallel government.
Two books, James Mann's "Rise of the Vulcans" and James Bamford's "A Pretext
for War," have revealed that in the 1980s this parallel structure, operating
outside normal government channels, included,
9/11, new martial law plans began to surface similar to those of FEMA
in the 1980s.
In January 2002 the Pentagon submitted a proposal for
deploying troops on American streets. One month later John Brinkerhoff, the
author of the 1982 FEMA memo, published an article arguing for the legality
of using U.S. troops for purposes of domestic security.
Then in April 2002, Defense Dept. officials implemented a plan for domestic
U.S. military operations by creating a new U.S. Northern Command (CINC-NORTHCOM)
for the continental United States.
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld called
"the most sweeping set of changes since the unified command system was
set up in 1946."
The NORTHCOM commander, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announced, is
"homeland defense and also serves as head of the North
American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD)... He will command U.S. forces
that operate within the United States in support of civil authorities. The
command will provide civil support not only in response to attacks, but for
John Brinkerhoff later commented on PBS that,
"The United States itself is
now for the first time since the War of 1812 a theater of war. That means
that we should apply, in my view, the same kind of command structure in the
United States that we apply in other theaters of war."
Then in response to Hurricane Katrina in Sept. 2005, according to the
Washington Post, White House senior adviser Karl Rove told the governor of
Louisiana, Kathleen Babineaux Blanco, that she should explore legal options
to impose martial law "or as close as we can get."
The White House tried
vigorously, but ultimately failed, to compel Gov. Blanco to yield control of
the state National Guard.
Also in September,
NORTHCOM conducted its highly classified Granite Shadow
exercise in Washington.
As William Arkin reported in the Washington Post,
"Granite Shadow is yet another new Top Secret and compartmented operation
related to the military's extra-legal powers regarding weapons of mass
destruction. It allows for emergency military operations in the United
States without civilian supervision or control."
It is clear that the
is thinking seriously about
Many critics have alleged that FEMA's spectacular failure to respond to
Katrina followed from a deliberate White House policy: of paring back FEMA,
and instead strengthening the military for responses to disasters.
A multimillion program for detention facilities will greatly increase
NORTHCOM's ability to respond to any domestic disorders.
