Why is National Guard recruiting for 'internment' cops?
2009 WorldNetDaily ^ | August 07, 2009 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 08/09/2009 6:19:03 PM PDT by adanaC

An ad campaign featured on a U.S. Army website seeking those who would be interested in being an "Internment/Resettlement" specialist is raising alarms across the country, generating concerns that there is some truth in those theories about domestic detention camps, a roundup of dissidents and a crackdown on "threatening" conservatives.

The ads, at the GoArmy.com website as well as others including Monster.com, cite the need for:

"Internment/Resettlement (I/R) Specialists in the Army are primarily responsible for day-to-day operations in a military confinement/correctional facility or detention/internment facility. I/R Specialists provide rehabilitative, health, welfare, and security to U.S. military prisoners within a confinement or correctional facility; conduct inspections; prepare written reports; and coordinate activities of prisoners/internees and staff personnel.

The campaign follows by only weeks a report from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warning about "right-wing extremists" who could pose a danger to the country – including those who support third-party political candidates, oppose abortion and would prefer to have the U.S. immigration laws already on the books enforced.

“From the national level, WND was told, officials were unaware of any such “internment facilities” at which there could be jobs to be available. “

How in the H-— can “officials” say they don’t know about it? Who placed the ads?

This is more WND stirring the pot. This MOS has been around since at least the 60’s.

They are to be the guards at the camps for the people who are arrested, and jailed without trials, for not agreeing with the current Whitehouse squatter.

At first I thought ‘UNBELIEVABLE’ then I checked out the GoArmy.com website and it looks legitimate.

This is scary. I’ve been goggling FEMA concentration camps in the USA, and the more I see the more I believe.

If it smells like a skunk, and walks like a skunk ...

The idea that Obama is going to toss all the conservatives, bloggers, gun owners etc into detention camps is tinfoil. It's not going to happen.

However the fact that the Army feels they might need internment cops is unsettling to say the least. They are thinking about a worst case scenario, great depression, mob violence, food riots, you name it. They are thinking about all possibilities for the next few years. Things could get better soon, or they could go to hell. The government always plans for every contingency.

I would make the logical assumption that such expertise would be needed overseas in war zones. That makes sense to me. We already had to do that kind of thing in Iraq.

For a minute there, I thought you wrote it "wasn't" tinfoil. Good thing I re-read it before reporting you to flag@whitehouse.gov.

"The same kinda thing was posted a couple days ago"

This topic was posted months ago when Obama was ordering old military bases refurbished and converted into these "temporary resettlement camps".

We have to be prepared for a civil war. It's obvious Obama is not wasting any time.

These secret detention camps, Obama's recruiting of a national army of his own has to be uncovered and widely exposed

Yeah, their American Hiroshima series was a real winner. I stopped reading them after that. No Americans I know are going to willingly go to concentration camps...alive anwyay. Too many guns, too much ammo for that kind of nonesense.

We are not Russian/Chinese peasants, we are not the jews circa 1930’s. Any signifcant effort in that regard will be met with much violent resistance, and we got the goods to do it. Its an Obama pipe dream (wet dream) that will never happen, at least, will never succeed.

"Internment/Resettlement (I/R) Specialists ... provide rehabilitative, health, welfare, and security to U.S. military prisoners...

This article sounds like fear-mongering. The internment probably has to do with closing Gitmo and moving the prisoners here. I would hope it's not for interning its own citizens for political opposition (smell something fishy? - call the White House!). I don't think even the Dems would go along with interning all Conservatives, would they? < ;[

Obama’s civilian security force — as well funded as the military, as he says — horrifies me.

But I haven’t seen anything credible regarding the secret detention camps. If you have a good link on this, I’d love to see it (sincerely... that’s not a challenge).

The military personnel working at Gitmo today are essentially, if not exactly, what this job description outlines. I don’t find it unsettling at all that the Army is hiring for such positions. Who else is going to guard military prisoners?

Google ‘FEMA concentration camps in the USA’ and there is a lot of information about recent work in these camps.

I pray this is a lotta hype about nothing, but the more I know, the more I wish I didn’t know.

This says it all from the army website under Advanced Responsibilities

# Provide command and control, staff planning, administration/logistical services, and custody/control for the operation of an Enemy Prisoner of War/Civilian Internee (EPW/CI) camp

# Provide command and control, staff planning, administration/logistical services, and custody/control for the operation of detention facility or the operation of a displaced civilian (DC) resettlement facility

Do not believe this nonsense, if you do, you are making a fool of yourself.

This Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) has been around for at least 75 years. These guys work at the military prison at Ft Leavenworth (U.S. Disciplinary Barracks), but in recent years also at Gitmo, and in Iraq and Afghanistan where they have dealt with suspected insurgents.

In World War II, they were responsible for POW’s, refugees, and other internees. Lot’s of them in post war Germany.

Don’t get worked up into a lather over this, there’s nothing there. Spend your time on the truly dangerous things that the Obama gang is doing.

The text of the ad hasn’t been altered in at least four years. If they’d inserted the word “domestic” somewhere in there, this listing might mean something. But it doesn’t.

That dooesn’t mean there won’t be political prisoners in the age of Obama. Socialism cannot exist without political police and political prisoners, to paraphrase Churchill. It just means that this job posting doesn’t offer any evidence of it.

I’m quite sure they already have me flagged@whitehouse.gov. However I still receive Obama’s emails to the faithful. They want me to report to the nearest town hall meeting to denounce the partisan, racist lies about health insurance reform, then to go to my Congressman’s office in person to express my unwavering support for same. Why is there still a “DONATE” button on every Obama email? Donate to what?

The same kind of thing was all over the internet in the 90s. Paranoia was fun then. We had the X-Files. We had Y2K. Suicide cults. New World Order. TEOTWAWKI. Now it just seems derivative and tired.

Hay guys, guess what. I heard the Army isn't just recruiting prison guards, they're also recruiting heavily armed and highly trained professional killers. Trust No 1!

"This is more WND stirring the pot. This MOS has been around since at least the 60’s."

I wouldn't say so. Obama himself mentioned even before he was elected that he wanted to establish a national police force. For what reason? why these "resettlement camps"? Clearly they aren't for Gitmo terrorists. Those are released into the general population.

While these particular recruiting ads many be nothing by themselves, a lot of other things going on are cause for great concern, things Obama and Ayers have been involved in for years.

It’s good to be aware, but don’t panic like they want.

Google ‘FEMA concentration camps in the USA’ and there’s a lot of interesting stuff out there on this topic.

Best to take it all with a grain of salt.

“Well Obama wants to be like Lincoln, and didn’t Lincoln have political enemies jailed?”

Indeed he did. In order to “save” the constitution, President Lincoln ignored the constitution. He arrested legistlators in border states to keep them from succeeding. When the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court ruled him unconstitutional, POTUS Lincoln considered having the Chief Justice arrested....fortunately cooler heads prevailed and quietly kept him from doing so. Regardless of how one views the rightness or wrongness of the civil war...from either side. I think it is safe to say Lincoln did all kinds of violations of the rule of law.

Although, for the most part, Lincoln’s actions ultimately indirectly ended many wrongs (slavery). I don’t want any other POTUS to attempt to do the things POTUS Lincoln did. Especially one, IMO, that is of questionable eligibility to be POTUS. Even that being ignored. Barrack Obama is NOT Abraham Lincoln.

Far more accurate and truthful than anything you see from MSM.
