Homeland Security graduates first Corps of Homeland Youth

October 7, 2012Share Homeland Security graduates first Corps of Homeland Youth

October 7, 2012.

Vicksburg.

The federal government calls them FEMA Corps. But they conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930’s Germany. Regardless of their name, the Dept of Homeland Security has just graduated its first class of 231 Homeland Youth. Kids, aged 18-24 and recruited from the President’s AmeriCorp volunteers, they represent the first wave of DHS’s youth corps, designed specifically to create a full time, paid, standing army of FEMA Youth across the country.

On September 13, 2012, the Dept of Homeland Security graduated its first class of FEMA Corps youth, aka the Homeland Youth. Image courtesy of DHS.gov. On September 13, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security graduated its first class of FEMA Corps first-responders. While the idea of having a volunteer force of tens of thousands of volunteers scattered across the country to aid in times of natural disasters sounds great, the details and timing of this new government army is somewhat curious, if not disturbing.

DHS raising an armed army

The first problem one finds with this ‘new army’ is the fact that they are mere children. Yes, 18 is generally the legal age a person can sign a contract, join the military or be tried as an adult. But ask any parent - an 18, 20 or even a 24 year-old is still a naïve, readily-influenced kid.

The second problem with this announcement and program is its timing. Over the past two years, President Obama has signed a number of Executive Orders suspending all civil and Constitutional rights and turning over management of an America under Martial Law to FEMA. Also in that time, domestic federal agencies under DHS, including FEMA, have ordered billions of rounds of ammunition as well as the corresponding firearms. Admittedly, these new weapons and ammunition aren’t to be used in some far-off war or to fight forest fires in California, but right here on the streets of America.

Strange Armored Fighting Vehicles

Individuals around the US have begun reporting the site of strange, new, heavily-armed FEMA fighting vehicles. What would a disaster relief agency like FEMA need with 2,500 brand new GLS armored fighting vehicles? According to the agency’s own mandate, as well as President Obama’s recent Executive Order, the answer is ‘population control’ during a time of Martial Law.

One set of images made available by Rense.com shows trailer after trailer carrying these new DHS and FEMA armored fighting vehicles, complete with machine gun slots. They’re labeled with the usual backward American flag and the title, ‘Homeland Security’. Below that and the DHS logo, it also reads, ‘Immigration & Customs Enforcement’. Joining those markings, the black vehicles with white lettering also display ‘POLICE/RESCUE’ on one side and ‘Special Response Team’ on the other. DHS & FEMA armed fighting vehicles. Images courtesy of Rense.com.

FEMA Corps

FEMA Deputy Administrator Rich Serino gave the keynote address at the ‘Induction Ceremony’ for the inaugural class of FEMA Corps members. According to the DHS website, ‘Corps members assist with disaster preparedness, response, and recovery activities, providing support in areas ranging from working directly with disaster survivors to supporting disaster recovering centers to sharing valuable disaster preparedness and mitigation information with the public.’

Serino describes what the first FEMA Corps class has accomplished so far, as well as where they’ll be going next:

‘Yesterday, we welcomed 231 energetic members into the first ever FEMA Corps class. The members just finished off their first month of training with our partners at the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and are one step closer to working in the field on disaster response and recovery. They will now head to FEMA’s Center for Domestic Preparedness to spend the next two weeks training in their FEMA position-specific roles. Once they complete both the CNCS and FEMA training, these 231 dedicated FEMA Corps members will be qualified to work in one of a variety of disaster related roles, ranging from Community Relations to Disaster Recovery Center support.’

A standing army

Unlike most local disaster response teams who are volunteers, training periodically and only showing up when there’s a disaster, the FEMA Corps will be a paid, full time, standing army of government youth. FEMA Deputy Administrator Sarino goes on to explain, ‘The new members, who range in age from 18-24 years old, will contribute to a dedicated, trained, and reliable disaster workforce by working full-time for ten months on federal disaster response and recovery efforts.’

In closing his announcement of the first graduating class of FEMA Corps Youth, Sarino describes his and the agency’s vision of the future, one where ‘FEMA Corps sets the foundation for a new generation of emergency managers’.

DHS arms itself

As we detailed in the August 28 Whiteout Press article ‘History of DHS Ammunition Purchases’, federal emergency management agencies are looking more and more like a military army every day.

The federal government’s procurement website actually lists DHS’ requests for bids to supply it with ammunition and military weaponry. All of the orders listed in the above article, including the orders for hundreds of millions of rounds of ammunition, are publicly available at http://www.fbo.gov.

One look at a chart of DHS ammunition purchases over the past decade reveals a drastic spike in orders of bullets recently, totaling in the billions of rounds. Other charts available online show a similar drastic spike in the purchases of accompanying weaponry by the Department of Homeland Security.

What is the US federal government preparing for? And why does it feel it needs an army of brainwashed youth, millions of guns, thousands of armored fighting vehicles and literally billions of rounds of ammunition, just to provide relief to the American people during a natural disaster? Any historian will tell you it sounds more like the arming of the Hitler Youth than an army of first responders fighting forest fires and hurricanes.

The Youth Corps is made up of the inner-city tribal parasites exhibited in NY and NJ and on Twitter, where when disaster strikes, they see it as their RIGHT to go take Whitey’s stuff, ‘cause they’re not there and it’s FREE!

THIS is the danger of not knowing history. This is the track ALL leftism takes, but there are so many that think it “couldn’t happen here” or that WE can MAKE socialism work in THIS country.

Make no mistake- the leaders on the left always- ALWAYS- knew what they were doing and just WHO would make the best “useful idiots”. And you can thank John Dewey and the Dept of Ed and the teachers’ unions for the rest of the damage.

This election HAS to be about more than just kicking an incompetent administration out of its can. It HAS to be a complete and total repudiation of leftism. We deny this at our utmost peril.

Not much wonder that Romney is intimating he will pass FEMA role over to the States.

This has the left’s panties all in a twist, they are using it as a talking point against Romney on the MSM talking head news.

If the feds were serious about "disaster response and recovery" they would have recruited older, experienced people with the kinds of skills, abilities and experience that would enable them to get the job done without needing On-Job-Training.

Squads of young people like this sounds more like the kinds of youth squads that black despots throughout Africa use to prop them up and control dissenters.

You might be correct, but since there isn't an African American within 300 miles of my house; I figure they won't send them here anyway.

Back on Nov 3rd 2002, we have a 7.9 shaker; best one I've ever went through. Holes & faults opened up everywhere, all my furniture was over turned, wood stoves slid 15 foot across the floor, all the copper water,propane, & oil lines broke, even my well head's top blew off and I had a 6 inch geyser hitting my ceiling in the laundry room. Anyway, FEMA showed up in a couple days and everybody was glad to see them as we didn't have access to hardware to fix everything, (roads were closed for over a month,couldn't go anywhere). FEMA consists of a management force, then they borrow maintenance people from all the other fed agencies and send them to the site to help out. All the maintenance trucks from other state & fed departments did all the work. The FEMA people were hardly ever around. They did show up about a month later and had everybody fill out forms to get a loan to replace everything they lost. The loan was never to be paid back from what I heard. Wife and I were teachers at the village and only I and another one Indian family refused to fill out the forms for the handouts. The one Indian Family told all the other Indians "When did White Man ever give ya something and not take more away" ha ha, no joke. So anyway, about a month later everybody got checks for 9 thousand and bought new snowmachines. Everybody but me I guess, ha ha.

I don't get too worried about FEMA anymore, they ain't that good at what they do to begin with, all screwed up like most govt entities. And,,, if ya do have a real disaster, you sure are glad to see them get everything started at getting things fixed up and back to working order.

Ah, no. At eighteen if they are still being referred to as kid, there is something wrong with the parents. If at twenty-four, then there absolutely is a real issue with parenting.

Thanks for sharing the article. I am surprised we are not hearing all kinds of wonderful things from MSM about how these FEMA troops are helping in a huge way with hurricane Sandy cleanup and aid? Also wonder why 0bama didn’t say that everything would be fine, since his private army will be swooping in the help. ?? (/s)

Most of this bunch look white. They will be the first wave sacrificed. The black ones who are the elite Obots will come in to face the depleted citizenry. This way the sacrificed whiteys will prove that it was not a racially motivated Obot invasion when they are shown dead on TV.

They have females in there too so they won’t want to go home to have sex with abandoned significant others. Separate them from their families and separate them from humanity - isolation into a cult.

Why are we hearing about the September story now? It’s stonewalled stealth.

You're beating your head against a wall.

For some strange reason people in this country simply refuse to believe it can happen here.

They honestly believe the left in this country somehow are different than the left in other countries.

After all they have FRIENDS that are leftist, and their friends wouldn't hurt anyone.

What they can't or wont grasp is their leftist friends wont lift a finger to stop it.

Leftist being leftist will lie to themselves that something is happening. When their friends disappear, they will simply tell themselves they moved without telling them so they must not have really been friends.

” According to the DHS website, ‘Corps members assist with disaster preparedness, response, and recovery activities, providing support in areas ranging from working directly with disaster survivors to supporting disaster recovering centers to sharing valuable disaster preparedness and mitigation information with the public.’ “

Read the above as “Community Activists”, or ARMED 18- 24 yr old community organizers .
The fact that their equipment is above military grade and armored ?
The fact that the uniform is purple should not be surprising !
At least the Job Corps taught meaningful occupational trades ( Carpentry , electricians, plumbers , heavy equipment operators , etc. ) to disadvantaged youth with the opportunity to work their way out of poverty , inner-city gangs, etc.
The FEMA Corps is just another way to create armed government parasites for crowd control .

This goes far deeper than these 231 youts. Apparently the have already co-opted the Girls Scouts who now have badges for this stuff. The Red Cross arm has their own “Masters of Disasters”.

Read through their page,

http://www.citizencorps.gov/getstarted/youth/youthindex.shtm

Apparently stimulus money has flowed to DHS FEMA coffers such that they are offering grant$ to start these Obama Kinder as well as adult community cadres.

And that “Tommorrow Belongs to Me” really is a main selling point.

Holy carp!

This may very well trace back to the Obama care national heealth bill where the Dems put in a clause authorizing a new force equal in power to the army.

It seems like the Dems which are not only highly Socialist but heavily occupied by outright communists which absolutely includes Obama are preparing for a revolt against the lawful government of the U.S.
