Just recently, I learned about a program called REX 84 (Readiness Exercise 1984). In short it is a program that was designed, in a national emergency, to suspend the U.S. Constitution, implement marshall law, place military commanders in charge of local governments, and round up citizens deemed to be a threat. Colonel Oliver North was the architect of the original REX 84 program.
Like many things REX 84 may have been originally developed for a good reason. Things have changed a lot since 1984. We all know that a good program or law can be perverted and used for a totally different purpose, in some cases an evil one. The use of the RICO Act against pro-lifers is a good example of a good law gone bad.
In May of 2007, President George W. Bush replaced, or expanded if you will, REX 84 with Executive Orders, NSPD51 and HSPD 20. Obama has continued to expand government control of resources like the internet and other means of communications. In an emergency the President could pretty much control every aspect of our lives.
As of July of this year Obama, after another Executive Order was signed, could bring the internet under government control in an emergency. This would, of course, include any type of uprising by the American people.
New documents reveal the criteria used to create the “Main Core” list that our government has been compiling on Americans for Rex 84 purposes.
To give you a quick background, “Main Core” is a list designed to identify Americans who could be deemed a ‘terrorist’ threat both to the nation and to the government. Again, Rex 84 which was an exercise intended to suspend the Constitution and declare martial law, placing the military in charge of cities and towns across the nation. It was created in case there was an uprising in America, and the original plan was to be able to detain up to 21 million people without due process and only upon suspicion of guilt.
FEMA created the Rex 84 program and is who would be in charge of the detention of people should the plan be executed. As of 2008 there were 8 million Americans known to be on the “Main Core” list and as time has passed the criteria for being placed on it has weakened and the list has grown.
The information is gathered using the spying tools that the NSA, CIA, FBI, and other federal law enforcement agencies use to monitor our daily lives. The list contains personal information like our financial records, our beliefs, our associations, family members, etc. and all of it is analyzed to determine if we should be placed on it.
Are you on it?
