They Have a Little List

The business end of government: It always comes down to the barrel of a gun or the edge of an Executioner's blade.

"As some day it may happen that a victim must be found, I've got a little list -- I've got a little list, of society offenders who might well be underground, and who never would be missed -- who never would be missed!...

There's the pestilential nuisances who write for autographs [or, as we call them now, blogs]; all people who have flabby hands and irritating laughs....

Then the idiot who praises, with enthusiastic tone, All centuries but this, and every country but his own...the Judicial humorist--I've got him on the list!

All funny fellows, comic men, and clowns of private life-- they'd none of 'em be missed--they'd none of 'em be missed..... The task of filling up the blanks I'd rather leave to you. But it really doesn't matter whom you put upon the list, for they'd none of 'em be missed--they'd none of 'em be missed!"

The song of the Lord High Executioner, from Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado

For a long time, filed in the category of "Things We Always Knew But Couldn't Prove" we could find the assumption that the Regime has a Little List -- a database of people who would be subject to questioning, detention, or worse, in the event of a "national emergency."

We now can file that assumption in the category of "Awful Things We Know For Sure."

According to "The Last Roundup," a diligently researched and carefully written investigative piece in Radar magazine, The List is not an artifact of overheated imagination, but rather a tangible and portentious reality.

Although several former high-ranking government officials are cited by name in the Radar piece (some of whom spoke to the publication directly), the most important source is a "former senior government official who served with high level security clearances in five administrations." He chose to remain anonymous for reasons his key disclosure should make obvious:

"There exists a database of Americans who, often for the slightest and most trivial reason, are considered unfriendly, and who, in a time of panic, might be incarcerated. The database can identify and locate perceived `enemies of the state' almost instantaneously."

The "List" is actually a database called Main Core that reportedly contains the names of at least 8 million Americans. Based on what is known of previous lists compiled by the FBI and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Radar speculates -- quite responsibly -- that Main Core "includes dissidents and activists of various stripes, political and tax protesters, lawyers and professors, publishers and journalists, gun owners, illegal aliens, foreign nationals, and a great many other harmless, average people."

As we can see, this is not the first time that the Feds have undertaken to assemble a master list of Troublesome People, to the extent existing technology made this possible.

In 1950, coincident with the Korean War, J. Edgar Hoover proposed the arrest and mass imprisonment of thousands suspected of disloyalty as a means of protecting the government from "treason, espionage and sabotage."

He had a Little List: J. Edgar Hoover, a key architect of the National Security State.

For many years prior to that proposal, Hoover had been compiling his Little List, which he called a "Security Index.
“The index now contains approximately twelve thousand individuals, of which approximately ninety-seven per cent are citizens of the United States,” he wrote in a message to Sidney W. Souers, a special assistant for national security to President Truman.

Rounding up these purported troublemakers would be quite simple, Hoover continued; a "master warrant" could be attached to a list naming those subject to arrest, coupled with a presidential declaration suspending the habeas corpus guarantee. Then the FBI, working in collaboration with the military, would make arrangements for the indefinite detention of those people in military facilities around the nation.

Hoover initially sought permission to compile his Little List in 1946; two years later Attorney General Tom Clark consented. While his proposal wasn't acted on, it took root within the national security establishment, mutating into various similar proposals over the following decades.

At about the time Hoover (who, ironically enough, opposed the WWII-era roundup and detention of Japanese-Americans) was poring over his list of potential detainees, the security establishment was beavering away at "Operation High Point," a crash program to build a sprawling underground survival complex at Mount Weather, a tract of federally owned land near Bluemont, Virginia.

Mount Weather is the central node of the Regime's "Continuity of Government" network. Virtually impregnable, the facility has its own secure supplies of food, water, and power, as well as most of the amenities to which our "public servants" have become accustomed. (I don't know whether this would include a Strangelovian stable of nubile young playthings, but I would be surprised if it didn't.)

The true priorities of our ruling class can be deduced from this fact: While it has undertaken a detailed, expensive plan to ensure the continuity of government, there is no corresponding effort to ensure the continuity of freedom. In fact, a crisis of sufficient magnitude to justify activation of "continuity of government" plans would be perceived as a good and sufficient justification to dispense with the troublesome business of individual liberty outright.

What Lurks Beneath:
Mount Weather -- the visible portion thereof -- in its verdant Virginia setting.

Alluded to in the 1962 novel (and 1964 film) Seven Days in May, the Mount Weather complex was the subject of a 1975 investigation by California Senator John V. Tunney, an unauthorized expose via a 1976 article in The Progressive, a controlled-release profile in a 1991 Time magazine piece, and a bizarre cameo in the atrocious 2002 film adaptation of Tom Clancy's exceptional novel The Sum of All Fears.

During his 1975 investigation of government surveillance activities, Senator Tunney discovered that Mount Weather also hosted a master electronic database compiled by FEMA on 100,000 Americans.

In its expose the following year, The Progressive reported that Mount Weather's computer systems could "obtain millions of pieces [of] information on the personal lives of American citizens by tapping the data stored at any of the 96 Federal Relocation Centers" -- which, Radar helpfully explains, was "a reference to other classified facilities." The FEMA/Mount Weather surveillance program was run entirely outside the law, and its information was inaccessible even to House and Senate "oversight" committees.

The next significant disclosure regarding the existence of The List and the role it would play in continuity of government planning came in the mid-1980s, when Oliver North's Rex 84 program received some unexpected -- and unwelcome -- scrutiny. In the event of a national emergency (whether in the form of a natural disaster, military crisis, mass terrorism, or some other catastrophe) Rex 84 envisioned the effective suspension of the Constitution, the appointment of regional military commanders to run state and local governments, and the detention of hundreds of thousands of people -- illegal aliens, criminal suspects, and sundry non-criminal troublemakers -- in a system of at least 10 military facilities across the country.

Radar points out that this element of Rex 84 grew out of existing federal contingency plans calling for "large-scale detention" of Americans in the event of widespread unrest. "Around the time of the 1968 race riots, for instance, a paper drawn up at the U.S. Army War College detailed plans for rounding up millions of`militants' and `American negroes,' who were to be held at `assembly centers or relocation camps,'" notes the magazine.

Keeping tally of kills? That seems to be the purpose of the figures drawn on the side of this APC used by the Midland County Sheriff's Department in its terrorist assault on the FLDS community.
(Hat tip:

All of this helps underscore one reason why I have spent so much time examining the ongoing atrocity committed by the State of Texas against the FLDS community at Eldorado:

The assault on the YFZ Ranch by militarized police units; the subsequent seizure of children and mothers and their detention in facilities described by outraged medical professionals as "concentration camps"; the use of what could be called a "master warrant" -- obtained through what has to be conscious fraud on the part of law enforcement -- to place an entire community under arrest; the effective nullification (through judicial indifference) of the habeas corpus guarantee as it applies to the abducted children -- all of these outrages are part and parcel of the martial law system that has been developed over the past six decades. Indeed, the Eldorado Atrocity could be seen as that system in microcosm.

Therefore the question is not whether, but rather how extensively, that system will be put into use.

In order to illustrate how the Master Core database could be used, Radar sketches out the following scenario:

"[C]oordinated bombings in several American cities [culminate] in a major blast -- say, a suitcase nuke -- in New York City. Thousands of civilians are dead. Commerce is paralyzed. A state of emergency is declared by the president. Continuity of Governance plans that were developed during the Cold War and aggressively revised since 9/11 go into effect. Surviving government officials are shuttled to protected underground complexes carved into the hills of Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Power shifts to a `parallel government' that consists of scores of secretly preselected officials. (As far back as the 1980s, Donald Rumsfeld, then CEO of a pharmaceutical company, and Dick Cheney, then a congressman from Wyoming, were slated to step into key positions during a declared emergency.) The executive branch is the sole and absolute seat of authority, with Congress and the judiciary relegated to advisory roles. The country becomes, within a matter of hours, a police state."

I must point out that what is described above fails to terrify me, since it is not noticeably removed from where we are now. Yes, there has been no mass evacuation of government personnel to Weather Mountain and its sister facilities, or any large-scale round-up of dissidents. But the Bush Regime has treated the other branches of government as if they were constitutional nullities -- both in matters of war and peace and domestic security.

It doesn't seem that likely to me that overt martial law will descend on our country as the result of one discrete catastrophic event. Instead, I see it as already realized in principle, and becoming a more tangible reality as opportunities present themselves. Our rulers don't need a second 9/11-style incident in order to grab more power than they have already claimed, although such a disaster would be useful in terms of cultivating public acceptance for the undisguised exercise of those powers. But that acceptance is being won incrementally, and at a remarkably accelerated rate.

To understand how this works, consider the case of former Texas Congressman Jack Brooks, featured in the film clip above trying to drag Rex 84 out of tenebrous realm of contingency planning. During the 1987 Iran-Contra hearings, Brooks demanded that Col. North defend Rex 84 and its provisions for suspending constitutional government -- only to be slapped down by Committee Chairman Daniel Inoyue.

That happened, as I noted, in 1987. By 1993, Brooks -- by then Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee -- had become a craven apologist for the exercise of the very powers he had denounced, as least when "cultists" like Waco's Branch Davidians were on the receiving end. Speaking in the aftermath of the Mt. Carmel Holocaust, Brooks sneeringly said of the victims:

"Those people got what they deserved."

Why did those people "deserve" to be penned into a building and burned alive, or shot by paramilitary forces as they attempted to flee the flames? From the perspective of Brooks and his ilk, this was condign punishment for the supposed crime of resisting the lawless lethal violence of the State, in this case the unjustified initial assault by the ATF on the Mt. Carmel sanctuary.

Today, as FLDS parents are being told that they must, in effect, plead guilty to unspecified charges of child abuse as a condition of being permitted to associate with their own kidnapped children, tens of millions of Americans are giving voice to variations on the same incredibly cruel sentiments expressed by Jack Brooks fifteen years ago.

How many of those Americans could find their names on the Main Core list of potential "troublemakers"? How many of them, when given an opportunity to help the Regime's Willing Executioners with the task of "filling up the blanks," would do so with indecent eagerness?

His name was on a list, too: Patriot hero John Hancock.

It's something akin to a certainty that anybody who has made himself conspicuous by opposing the Regime and its crimes, both foreign and domestic, has already inscribed his name on the Main Core list. Anybody worthy of our heritage should already be doing something that will have that result, and treat that prospect with the same insouciance displayed by John Hancock, who signed his name large enough "so that fat King George can read it without his glasses."

Such is the perverse temper of our times that genuine patriots shouldn't let their eyes close in well-earned slumber each night without doing something to earn the hostility of the Keepers of The List.

On sale now!

"Instead, I see [martial law] as already realized in principle, and becoming a more tangible reality as opportunities present themselves."

Quite so. Since 2001, numerous steps have been taken which directly contravene the constitution: the PATRIOT Act; the Guantanamo prison; telecoms spying; the Military Commissions Act. No effective resistance has been raised by the judiciary, the legislature, or the people.

One definition of martial law is suspension of the constitution during wartime. Well, we have a president who constantly claims that this is "wartime," and we have statutes in place which repeal much of the Bill of Rights.

Fascism was founded during a more plain-spoken era. Governments "declared" war; leaders "declared" martial law. Since then, lessons learned from advertising and public relations have indicated that ambiguity and deception are far more effective.

Why stir people up by talking about martial law? As long as the shopping malls and the polls stay open, it's child's play to convince them that everything is normal, even as prison complexes sprout like hulking dark mushrooms across the land. "You can vote, can't you? That's democracy! You're FREE!"

Of course, democracy itself is a bait-and-switch from a constitutional republic. But a government-schooled populace isn't going to detect that. And it turns out that with a captive Media and electronic voting machines, "democracy" is as easily managed as a tilted pinball machine, loaded dice, or a marked deck of cards. "Democracy" is no credible threat to the Depublicrat elite who have ruled for the last 150 years.

Based on outmoded images from fascism's early days, people conceive martial law as meaning tanks rolling down the streets and soldiers manning checkpoints. That day may come. But the infrastructure of martial law already will have been in place for years, fine-tuned through several revisions, blessed by the Supreme Court, and thoroughly devolved to the state and local levels via federalized law enforcement. Soldiers on the street will be the culmination of the process, not its beginning.

Will,I just had to interject that I REALLY enjoy your writing talents and the thought process that goes into them. Thank you.

I believe we are already in martial law. Doing it more or less secretively and without fanfare is much simpler and less messy than having a civil war type scenario.

Do the math. When you realize just how many people are either incarcerated or in some other way under the thumb of the legal system in this country, (I think it's something like 1 in 32) and add all the now-common abuses of power against citizens exercising their constitutional rights or simply minding their own business, it equals out to something resembling a quiet war on Americans.
Not so quiet any more, but by doing it in increments, people seem to become de-sensitized, and so they can get away with more and more criminal behavior without too much flack.

Actually, the Constitution has been effectively suspended since March 9, 1933 under Roosevelt, under the War Powers Act, Trading with the Enemy Act (which makes all American-US citizens the "enemy"), and more. I seem to remember that Continuity of Government has been in effect for many years, and was never discarded.

May God protect all of us who consciously of unconsciously do something to get on "the list", but we must do what we must do. Because I ain't "deferring" to any "Lord High Executioner"!

Will, connecting the dots in a way that can be digested by the average amerikan couch potato can be very dangerous you know. Keep them coming, you are a patriot in the true sense of the word.

Regarding your comment:

"Therefore the question is not whether, but rather how extensively, that system will be put into use."

My observation would be that when learning a new skill individuals and organizations need practice to develop a level of competency. Waco was practice, but the gov't got it's nose bloodied in Oklahoma City as a result. They realized that we live in an age where the visuals of burning people alive still won't fly even in our lethargic, spoiled society and suppressing those images is all but impossible given the technology. So, they've revised their tactics in Eldorado and have found a level of force that Joe average amerikan is willing to stomach. A little tweaking here, a little there and they will have a perceived workable plan.

Milton Meyer was so prescient in "They Thought They Were Free". (If you haven't read it and/or can't get it - it is out of print - feel free to borrow mine, you live in a neighboring community and I'll deliver. It would be an honor). I suppose the old saying that history repeats itself is so very true.

And yeah, I suspect I'm on such a list and damned proud of it.

UPDATE: Since this article went to press, several documents have emerged to suggest the story has longer legs than we thought. Most troubling among these is an October 2001 Justice Department memo that detailed the extra-constitutional powers the U.S. military might invoke during domestic operations following a terrorist attack. In the memo, John Yoo, then deputy assistant attorney general, "concluded that the Fourth Amendment had no application to domestic military operations." (Yoo, as most readers know, is author of the infamous Torture Memo that, in bizarro fashion, rejiggers the definition of "legal" torture to allow pretty much anything short of murder.) In the October 2001 memo, Yoo refers to a classified DOJ document titled "Authority for Use of Military Force to Combat Terrorist Activities Within the United States." According to the Associated Press, "Exactly what domestic military action was covered by the October memo is unclear. But federal documents indicate that the memo relates to the National Security Agency's Terrorist Surveillance Program." Attorney General John Mukasey last month refused to clarify before Congress whether the Yoo memo was still in force.

Meanwhile, congressional sources tell Radar that Congressman Peter DeFazio has apparently abandoned his effort to get to the bottom of the White House COG classified annexes. Penny Dodge, DeFazio's chief of staff, says otherwise. "We will be sending a letter requesting a classified briefing soon," she told Radar this week.

YESSS! As others noted, "the unanimous ruling by three judges of the Third Court of Appeals in Austin [in an 'unusual mandamus opinion'] revoked the state’s custody over a large group of the children and by extension almost certainly the rest, for what it called a lack of evidence that they were in immediate danger of sexual or physical abuse."

The New York Times article does not mention Will Grigg's uncompromising denunciation of this abuse. But it should. Once in a blue moon, truth and justice still prevail. Thank God for Will Grigg and Texas RioGrande Legal Aid, for a job well done.

Never compromise and never back down in the face of injustice. Thank you for your shining example.

I can't help but have these questions. Does cps only steal white kids cause white people or so docile? Did they take them because they are home schooled? Did they take em because they weren't getting poison vaccinations? Did Rosetta Swinton's crackpipe suddenly fill up after the raid? Who bailed out Swinton? SPLC? Some ratface fascists from Kotexas? Think, it ain't illegal...yet.

William N. Grigg said...

I've tried to find answers to some of those very questions, particularly the ones dealing with Swinton.

Her situation is complicated in interesting ways by the following facts: 1) She comes from a very troubled family background that apparently included abuse at the hands of her father, a convicted murderer who benefited from a politically useful parole by the former Gov. of Tennessee; 2) she was shuttled around in foster care for many years and apparently across several states; 3) she's reportedly a Mormon, albeit a member of the Salt Lake City-based trunk, rather than one of the isolated branches; 4) she was a missionary in El Salvador, although I don't know if this was for the LDS Church or another denomination; 5) she ended up in the care of a fairly prominent Christian foster care activist who has mentioned her in a couple of books; 6) she's been diagnosed with, and put on medication for, a suite of psychological problems, including MPD.

So the least we can say here is that Miss Swinton isn't just some random deranged individual. Her actions may have been spontaneous, but her background -- at the very least -- explains why she'd have a compulsion to make bogus abuse reports, and why she'd be interested in the FLDS and know at least some of the relevant details.

That she was bailed out by some benefactor I've yet to identify suggests that somebody has had an enduring interest in her, as well. So that's something I'm eagerly trying to learn more about.

Mr. Grigg,

Thanks for all the good work. If you had a paypal donate button I'd hit it.

A Member on a board I belong to made this following suggestion.

begin quote:

If these people have one competent attorney anywhere, they will have the Great Writ, (Habeas Corpus), served on the judges first AM. This will force the constitutional issues to hearing, as when the Great Writ is served, the court is in session, and the matter before it must be resolved speedily as possible. If anyone here has contact with these people, get them this information, and let them know it is their best speedy and adequate remedy available to recover their children. Their constitutional rights, and indeed, the rights of the children, were stomped into the mire beyond recognition of our alleged rule of law from the outset, and THIS IS the remedy, if their lawyers have any idea whatever how to frame it properly.

Some key things which should be included, which will make sense to competent counsel:

"...thereby in one of the united States of America, in fact, by right of heritage, Citizens of _______, protected by our family's contracts/compacts with the government as found in the Constitution of ----------), the Articles of Confederation of 1777, the Constitution for the united States of America (1787), including its Preamble and the Bill of Rights (1791); and as such retain all unalienable rights granted by God, within the positive law embodied in the Declaration of Independence, 1776, therefore binding upon ourselves and our parentage, this day and for all time.

...--------- County Department of Human Services, and ________ Foster Care Providers, the above named respondents, for the relief of your Petitioner and their minor child,...

Your Petitioners are entitled to a judicial Power proceeding with full measure of Constitutional protection as the ruler of justice and right to life, liberty, and property.

The legality of the restraint has not already been adjudged on a prior proceeding of the same character...

Petitioners have repeatedly demanded that Respondent's surrender to Petitioner the person of the minor, but Respondents have refused and still refuse to do so, based upon Statutory process, under color of law, without regard to the Constitutional rights of your Petitioners, See Exhibits -------

Petitioners are in all respects fit Citizens and proper parents to have custody of the minor child, and the minor's interests and welfare will be best served by replacing the minor into Petitioner's custody and home.

Respondents have and are acting in a unconstitutional manner, under color of law, with out due course of law, for the Court record shows no such evidence of Respondents said statutory child abuse existed, and as such are lawfully unfit persons to have custody and control of the minor, ---------, in that also they have and are violating the jurisdiction of the Court and the rights of your Petitioners, who are the lawful parents and Citizens -------------------, whom too, by our long standing care and support have consistently provided all necessities of life, in a respectable, responsible and lawful manner, since the birth of our child, ------------. See "Parent and Child" Memorandum of Law, which your Petitioner's have operated and confided in, as hereto attached and made a record of for judicial notice under Rule 201 (d) and (e).

Whereas, the Great Writ may not be suspended, except under the condition of civil martial law (rebellion or invasion), your Petitioners demand that a Writ of Habeas Corpus immediately issue out of and under the aforesaid constitutional judicial Power and the judicial seal of this Court pursuant to ------ et seq, for the relief of your Petitioner's child from the aforesaid unlawful imprisonment and restraint of her liberty and only as that of your Petitioner will ever demand."

You get the idea. It will force hearing on the constitutional issues the state wants to avoid in "dependency", "juvenile", or other concocted administrative venues and jurisdictions where people have no rights. It will bind the judges to their oaths, and is the most expedient means to run the appellate ladder quickly as necessary, on the reversible constitutional due process violations.

Edit to add: Ok, I did a quick read. The abuse of discretion ruling is the ammunition needed for the petition for writ, with the constitutional abuses of rights properly set forth. What is going on is apparently the usual form without substance, in that no order issued for the immediate return of the children. Without this, the onus is still on the parents, in a rigged forum, to sue the state for custody, when the exact opposite should be necessary. This is an old game of CPS parasites everywhere, to illegally transfer custody and then hide in parens patriae, forcing the parents to volunteer to waive their constitutional and natural rights in a strict liability adminstrative/ministerial summary proceeding and jurisdiction. If these people don't use the writ to force the issues into a judicial proceeding at law, they are most likely going to get the long play record treatment, while the state fabricates a back-up case, and the fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine is flat ignored. Yes, it does apply, and there is quite recent SCOTUS law which absolutely prohibits duplicative evidence after the fact of the exclusionary rule having been violated.

I'm serious as a heart attack. Someone get them this message. The Writ can short circuit this whole mess, and hang some oath-despising crooks out to dry.

Source: Rogue Government - Lee Rogers

The federal government is continuing the incremental agenda to build a Ministry of Love styled detention camp system for the American people. According to a report from the Los Angeles Times, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency or ICE is building three new detention camps in the United States. The detention facilities will be minimum-security residential facilities that the federal government says will be used to house illegal aliens. Considering that the majority of the American people are against illegal immigration and just want immigrants to come into the country legally, most people will believe that this is a reasonable step to solve the illegal immigration problem. Unfortunately, this is really nothing more than a phony solution to solve a problem that has been created by government policies that have been implemented to encourage the illegal alien problem. The federal government is using the illegal immigration problem as an excuse to build the detention camp apparatus that is really meant for the American people. This is pretty obvious considering Rex 84, the Army’s Civilian Inmate Labor Program, the preservation of detention camps for Japanese Americans used during World War II and additional detention facilities built by KBR. Building a series of detention facilities is not going to resolve the illegal immigration problem with an administration that has supported policies to ensure as many illegal aliens enter the country as possible. As the economy unravels and as more and more people begin to protest against this criminal government, the establishment will need these detention facilities to lock up large numbers of Americans.

Recently in Waterloo Iowa, the federal government through ICE and FEMA built a temporary detention facility on the National Cattle Congress fairgrounds to round up a group of illegal aliens working in the area. Rounding up a few hundred illegal aliens does absolutely nothing to reverse the long standing policies that created the illegal immigration problem in the first place. In fact, all they are doing to the illegal aliens they round up is to process them through their temporary FEMA camp. This is clearly not an effective way to stop illegal immigration. Under the guise of solving the illegal immigration issue they are simply having their people go through the motions in order to practice the deployment of a FEMA camp and the processing of live test subjects through the FEMA camp.

According to a report from Radar Magazine, top secret continuity of government operations includes a database called Main Core which contains a list of 8 million Americans. During a national emergency, people in this database could be arrested and detained by government authorities. In 2007, George W. Bush signed National Security Presidential Directive 51 which gives the president authority over all three branches of government during a catastrophic emergency. The Bush administration has also refused to reveal details on specific details of continuity of government operations to the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee. Perhaps the Main Core database and the plans to round up American citizens listed in this database during a national emergency is one of the reasons why they are keeping these details secret.

FEMA has also announced that they are expanding a program to transport a large number of American citizens using trains during an emergency. This is the same method that the Nazis used to transport large numbers of Jews and political dissidents to their death camps.

At the very least, the federal government is setting up some sort of Orwellian Ministry of Love system with these FEMA camps. In George Orwell’s book 1984, thought criminals were taken away to the Ministry of Love where they were re-educated to love Big Brother. These FEMA camps would serve as suitable places for the federal government to take away political dissidents and protesters. If Radar Magazine's report on the Main Core database is accurate, this makes the possibility that these FEMA camps will be used for such a purpose quite real. Top this off with the fact that S 1959 the Homegrown Terrorism and Violent Radicalization Act of 2007 gives the federal government a blank check to establish various think tanks and commissions to study and target people who have certain belief systems under the guise of fighting terrorism and it becomes even scarier. The U.S. House of Representatives has already passed their version of the bill by a vote of 404-6. The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee has come out with a report suggesting that new legislation should be passed to deal with homegrown terrorism and the adoption of so called radical ideology. What better way to deal with people who have certain belief systems than to put them in FEMA camps that will be used for the purposes of re-education? It is no secret that the Bush administration has maintained a policy that endorses torture. The 81 page torture memo that was authored by former Deputy Attorney General John Yoo is proof that the administration sought to justify torture using the phony terror war as cover. There’s little doubt that they are attempting to socially engineer the general public to accept torture as an acceptable practice. If they are successful in doing this, they will undoubtedly utilize these practices in any sort of Ministry of Love styled re-education camp system.

At the very worst, the federal government is setting up these FEMA camps as a way to exterminate large numbers of people. The elites of the world are obsessed with population reduction and these FEMA camps could easily be used to kill a large number of people.

These actions by the federal government should be of the utmost concern to the American people. The executive branch is being incredibly secret about continuity of government operations, there is legislation pending that will give the government a blank check to label particular belief systems as homegrown terrorism, the administration has written memos justifying the use of torture, they are maintaining a database of people who they’d round up during a national emergency and they are increasing the number of government run detention centers. As the economy continues to unravel and as more and more people become unhappy with the criminals and tyrants that have taken over the government, there is a very good chance that the ever growing martial law apparatus could be used on the people. This apparatus that they are setting up could be as bad if not worse than the Ministry of Love as depicted in George Orwell’s book 1984.

A CARELESS mistake by Microsoft programmers has revealed that special access codes prepared by the US National Security Agency have been secretly built into Windows. The NSA access system is built into every version of the Windows operating system now in use, except early releases of Windows 95 (and its predecessors). The discovery comes close on the heels of the revelations earlier this year that another US software giant, Lotus, had built an NSA "help information"
trapdoor into its Notes system, and that security functions on other software systems had been deliberately crippled.

The first discovery of the new NSA access system was made two years ago by British researcher Dr Nicko van Someren. But it was only a few weeks ago when a second researcher rediscovered the access system. With it, he found the evidence linking it to NSA.

Computer security specialists have been aware for two years that unusual features are contained inside a standard Windows software "driver" used for security and encryption functions. The driver, called ADVAPI.DLL, enables and controls a range of security functions. If you use Windows, you will find it in the C:\Windows\system directory of your computer.

ADVAPI.DLL works closely with Microsoft Internet Explorer, but will only run crypographic functions that the US governments allows Microsoft to export. That information is bad enough news, from a European point of view. Now, it turns out that ADVAPI will run special programmes inserted and controlled by NSA. As yet, no-one knows what these programmes are, or what they do.

Dr Nicko van Someren reported at last year's Crypto 98 conference that he had disassembled the ADVADPI driver. He found it contained two different keys. One was used by Microsoft to control the cryptographic functions enabled in Windows, in compliance with US export regulations. But the reason for building in a second key, or who owned it, remained a mystery.

A second key

Two weeks ago, a US security company came up with conclusive evidence that the second key belongs to NSA. Like Dr van Someren, Andrew Fernandez, chief scientist with Cryptonym of Morrisville, North Carolina, had been probing the presence and significance of the two keys. Then he checked the latest Service Pack release for Windows NT4,
Service Pack 5. He found that Microsoft's developers had failed to remove or "strip" the debugging symbols used to test this software before they released it. Inside the code were the labels for the two keys. One was called "KEY". The other was called "NSAKEY".

Fernandes reported his re-discovery of the two CAPI keys, and their secret meaning, to "Advances in Cryptology, Crypto'99" conference held in Santa Barbara. According to those present at the conference, Windows developers attending the conference did not deny that the "NSA" key was built into their software. But they refused to talk about what the key did, or why it had been put there without users' knowledge.

A third key?!

But according to two witnesses attending the conference, even Microsoft's top crypto programmers were astonished to learn that the version of ADVAPI.DLL shipping with Windows 2000 contains not two, but three keys. Brian LaMachia, head of CAPI development at Microsoft was "stunned" to learn of these discoveries, by outsiders. The latest discovery by Dr van Someren is based on advanced search methods which test and report on the "entropy" of programming code.

Within the Microsoft organisation, access to Windows source code is said to be highly compartmentalized, making it easy for modifications to be inserted without the knowledge of even the respective product managers.

Researchers are divided about whether the NSA key could be intended to let US government users of Windows run classified cryptosystems on their machines or whether it is intended to open up anyone's and everyone's Windows computer to intelligence gathering techniques deployed by NSA's burgeoning corps of "information warriors".

According to Fernandez of Cryptonym, the result of having the secret key inside your Windows operating system "is that it is tremendously easier for the NSA to load unauthorized security services on all copies of Microsoft Windows, and once these security services are loaded, they can effectively compromise your entire operating system". The NSA key is contained inside all versions of Windows from Windows 95 OSR2 onwards.

"For non-American IT managers relying on Windows NT to operate highly secure data centres, this find is worrying", he added. "The US government is currently making it as difficult as possible for "strong" crypto to be used outside of the US. That they have also installed a cryptographic back-door in the world's most abundant operating system should send a strong message to foreign IT managers".

"How is an IT manager to feel when they learn that in every copy of Windows sold, Microsoft has a 'back door' for NSA - making it orders of magnitude easier for the US government to access your computer?" he asked.

Can the loophole be turned round against the snoopers?

Dr van Someren feels that the primary purpose of the NSA key inside Windows may be for legitimate US government use. But he says that there cannot be a legitimate explanation for the third key in Windows 2000 CAPI. "It looks more fishy", he said.

Fernandez believes that NSA's built-in loophole can be turned round against the snoopers. The NSA key inside CAPI can be replaced by your own key, and used to sign cryptographic security modules from overseas or unauthorised third parties, unapproved by Microsoft or the NSA. This is exactly what the US government has been trying to prevent. A demonstration "how to do it" program that replaces the NSA key can be found on Cryptonym's

According to one leading US cryptographer, the IT world should be thankful that the subversion of Windows by NSA has come to light before the arrival of CPUs that handles encrypted instruction sets. These would make the type of discoveries made this month impossible. "Had the next-generation CPU's with encrypted instruction sets already been deployed, we would have never found out about NSAKEY."

Marines Bring Combat Training To Indianapolis

U.S. Marine helicopters will land at the old Eastgate Consumer Mall, Brookside Park and other Indianapolis locations when the city becomes a mock battlefield next week.

About 2,300 Marines from the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, based at Camp Lejeune, N.C., will conduct urban warfare training from Wednesday through June 19 in and around Indianapolis.

Most of the troops will be deployed at the Indiana State Fairgrounds and the Raytheon facility on Holt Road, said Debbi Fletcher of the Indianapolis/Marion County Emergency Management Agency.

“We don’t want anyone thinking that there’s an invasion happening or that we declared martial law or something like that,” Fletcher said.

The Marines have been cleared by state, federal and local authorities, Fletcher said. The unit’s commander promised to try to keep noise to a minimum and give neighbors plenty of warning.

“Our aim in Indianapolis is to expose our Marines to realistic scenarios and stresses posed by operating in an actual urban community, thereby increasing their proficiency in built-up areas,” Col. Mark J. Desens, commander of the 26th MEU, said in a statement. “While some of the activity will take place around Camp Atterbury, residents in many areas can expect to see helicopters flying overhead, military vehicles on the roads and Marines patrolling on foot,” Desens said.

The Marines will practice firing weapons, conducting patrols, running vehicle checkpoints, reacting to ambushes and employing nonlethal weapons, according to a statement.

In addition to Eastgate and Brookside Park, Indianapolis offered the Marines 24 other training sites, including Raymond Park Middle School, Ellenberger Park, Christian Park, Southeastway Park, the old Bush Stadium and Douglass Park.

However, not all cities are so open to the training. In February, after first canceling scheduled training, Toledo (Ohio) Mayor Carty Finkbeiner invited the Marines to train in the city, but outside the downtown area.
