Skip to comments.Are We Paranoid Enough Yet? FEMA’s Russia ‘Protocols’ Raise Serious Questions
Posted on 07/06/2013 6:49:41 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Oct. 8, 2012: Russias EMERCOM Minister Vladimir Puchkov (left) and U.S. Deputy Administrator for National Preparedness and Protection, Timothy Manning, sign the protocol of a bilateral meeting in Vladivostok, Russia.
Have FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security signed a deal that would permit as many as 15,000 Russian troops to be deployed in the United States to deal with an unspecified emergency?
This was not a question that I expected to be researching when I woke up today and decided to get back in the groove as Editor-in-Chief at ViralRead after the Fourth of July holiday. But then I checked the site stats and found that the top story and the top referrer were these items:
Obamas DHS Requests 15,000 Russian Troops Lisa Jennings, ViralRead
Whats With The 15,000 Russian Troops Requested By DHS? The Lonely Conservative
Well, well whats up with that, indeed? The most obvious explanations would seem to be either:
One of our writers has bought into a fringe conspiracy theory;
Its time to start stockpiling ammo and freeze-dried food, before the black helicopters show up to take us to FEMA camps.
This required me to do some research, because if either of these explanations is true, theres a problem. The credibility of ViralRead could be jeopardized if theres nothing to a story like this, but if there is something to the story, why isnt it being covered by mainstream news organizations? And, after doing some research, I found out that this is exactly the problem: While I cannot say for sure you shouldnt be stockpiling ammo, neither can I cite any official source on the content of these U.S.-Russia emergency agreements, and the regular media dont seem to have paid any attention at all to these agreements.....

How much are signed copies?
All that stuff is on my website.
Something about Janet Napolitano and 15,000 Russian troops.
It was pointed out by a person I can’t recall the name of but his point was. “ This is totally stupid! How long would it take for all the conspiracy theory nuts to take these out if it were true?” He is very pro 2nd amendment and has a point.
Anybody seen Snowden lately?
IMHO he’s pining for the fjords.
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I dont add you to the list...
I don’t think Norway wants him, either;)
odinga is preparing for a Zimmerman acquittal.
Word of advice to the russkies: pack lots of body bags.
A friend asked if I’d heard anything about Russian troops on U.S. soil, so I checked around and this was all I could find:
“odinga is preparing for a Zimmerman acquittal.”
Savage was discussing this on Wednesday evening.
Hope they will wear blue berets to we know who to shoot and place the red dot.
Let the War Games begin. Obama has given up this country without firing a shot
From the hypertext link at snopes (announced)
Looks real - by the way - who is that guy on the slideshow at the bottom of the page signing this document for FEMA?
From another article >
The extra-constitutional agreements(that means illegal agreements) were inked late last month in Washington, D.C., at the fourth annual meeting of the illegally created U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission Working Group on Emergency Situations. (http://www.state.gov/p/eur/ci/rs/usrussiabilat/c37332.htm)
This extra-governmental organization, formed under the Obama administration, is one of almost two dozen similar working groups bringing together top U.S. and Russian officials. (http://www.state.gov/p/eur/ci/rs/usrussiabilat/c37181.htm)
Its Not An Invasion, If We Think They Belong Here
Foreign Boots on American Soil: Russia To Share Military Security Experts With United States During Mass Disaster Incidents and Emergencies
Snopes isn’t the most reliable site, but they have this one essentially correct. EMERCOM are not combat troops, they are paramedics, firefighters, disaster responders, etc, and the agreement was just a cooperative training agreement, the likes of which have been going on for years. WND and other unscrupulous sites just decided to hype it because they know paranoid people will eat it up.
Snopes is an old leftist hippie couple in their California trailer. Bzzzzztttt!!
How about a link to your website...
At this point nothing this admin does will shock me
click on his screen name...
Probably the emergency would be too many red states and not enough blue states.
Snopes used by FReepers? Really? You mean the far leftist commie, bleeding heart, managed by liberal scum, Snopes?
Bullcrap. EMERCOM is a Russian federalized firefighter and paramedic force. Not even a paramilitary. They don’t have guns but probably among the best in the world in their business. FEMA has to learn something from them.
Numerous nations including NATO members and Israel are happy to see EMERCOM “troops” for rescue and relief ops in case on earthquake, flood or fires.
When I click on what appears to be boxes on the left side of his page I get this:
The requested URL /index.htm was not found on this server.
Next you'll be calling yourself prophetic, like Ayn Rand, who turned out eerily prophetic. Whoever thought that anything in real life would be evocative of "Atlas Shrugged"?
Reminds me, I have to get some more copies of your series - I gave mine away to a "communist" hackerspace in San Francisco (Noise bridge).
OK, but the timing of this is peculiar. In the past few days, Obama has turned his attention away from the Middle East, where he has where ever since Benghazi he has been siding with Islamic fundamentalists against Russia’s Syrian Ally, Assad. Now, all of a sudden, he turns his attention from that to concentrate on “Global Warming”?? Moreover, this has come at a time when the American public has lost all interest in global warming , due to the weak economy and bleak employment picture.

IMO, it is overinflated and misinterpreted to make some nuts ballistic and start crackdown on Tea Party. “15000 Russian troops speaking perfect English wearing US uniform”. Just wait a bit to see some “right-wing” nut opening fire at national guard or FBI agent under the influence of this propaganda.
Who, you predicted Khazak troops, not Russian!
Supposed to be “Whoa” instead of who.
This is a link I found. It talks about sharing “experts.”
I dont report people to the mods. If anyone refuses to add me to their list, I call my buddies in the NSA to send a black helicopter over to their place to take care of the problem. Capice?
Check your FRmail.
I know. It always amazes me, too, when I see FReepers using Snopes.
Where did you get THAT? I read 5 links and followed several 2 down, and didn't see this. Perhaps a link?
One of many like that.
Somehow, a picture of a very attractive Asian girl with Christian “Angel wings” flipping a “double bird” at the camera doesn’t quite satisfy the meat of my polite request.
I’ll ask again, nicely, please link to any source that could support the 15000 Russian troops that speak perfect English claim, if you could be so accommodating?
Please, look at that page carefully and scroll it down, Don.
I haven’t sent a link to flip a bird before you.
BTW, I don’t think that Russians are coming. I refer to it as an example of fearmongering hysteria about it.
You can find dozens of idiots online claiming that Russians are coming, someone is really encouraging them to believe that for their bad reasons.
He gets an A for crypto and an F for escapology.
Same story we read when clinton was in office. The writer forgot to add the 10 Chinese divisions hiding in the Texas sagebrush and the invisible FEMA camps being built in Idaho and Montana. Those camps will be manned by North Koreans who will float over in holiday cruise ships and land in Phoenix.
They won't be able to grow much beyond 15,000, 'cuz The Government documents foreigners' visas.
Silly ViralRead guy, why would Obama's media friends want to report on an invitation by our President for 15,000 national-sovereignty-destroying Russian frenemy troops to come over here for the unspecified emergency?
Hopefully, FOX News will report on it a few days after everybody else finds out, as usual.
I doubt that anything happened; she's not very attractive.
“she’s not very attractive”
You mean like they were supposed to pay her?
