Feds Train Clergy To "Quell Dissent" During Martial Law

[GW's comment: We need to Do Justice to counter those who would use Hitler's tactic of citing Romans 13 to force martial law down people's throats.].

Prison Planet and Shreveport, Louisiana's KSLA news have the goods.

A shocking KSLA news report has confirmed the story we first broke last year, that Clergy Response Teams are being trained by the federal government to "quell dissent" and pacify citizens to obey the government in the event of a declaration of martial law.

In May 2006, we exposed the existence of a nationwide FEMA program which is training Pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to "obey the government" in preparation for the implementation of martial law, property and firearm seizures, mass vaccination programs and forced relocation.

A whistleblower who was secretly enrolled into the program told us that the feds were clandestinely recruiting religious leaders to help implement Homeland Security directives in anticipation of a potential bio-terrorist attack, any natural disaster or a nationally declared emergency.

The first directive was for Pastors to preach to their congregations Romans 13, the often taken out of context bible passage that was used by Hitler to hoodwink Christians into supporting him, in order to teach them to "obey the government" when martial law is declared.

It was related to the Pastors that quarantines, martial law and forced relocation were a problem for state authorities when enforcing federal mandates due to the "cowboy mentality" of citizens standing up for their property and second amendment rights as well as farmers defending their crops and livestock from seizure.

It was stressed that the Pastors needed to preach subservience to the authorities ahead of time in preparation for the round-ups and to make it clear to the congregation that "this is for their own good."

Pastors were told that they would be backed up by law enforcement in controlling uncooperative individuals and that they would even lead SWAT teams in attempting to quell resistance.

Though some doubted the accuracy of this report at the time due to its fundamentally disturbing implications, the story has now been confirmed by a KSLA 12 news report, in which participating clergy and officials admit to the existence of the program.

Watch the video.

The report entertains the scenario of martial law as depicted in the movie The Siege and states that "quelling dissent would be critical."

Dr. Durell Tuberville serves as chaplain for the Shreveport Fire Department and the Caddo Sheriff's Office. Tuberville said of the clergy team's mission, "the primary thing that we say to anybody is, 'let's cooperate and get this thing over with and then we'll settle the differences once the crisis is over.'"

Such clergy response teams would walk a tight-rope during martial law between the demands of the government on the one side, versus the wishes of the public on the other. "In a lot of cases, these clergy would already be known in the neighborhoods in which they're helping to diffuse that situation," assured Sandy Davis. He serves as the director of the Caddo-Bossier Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.
For the clergy team, one of the biggest tools that they will have in helping calm the public down or to obey the law is the bible itself, specifically Romans 13. Dr. Tuberville elaborated, "because the government's established by the Lord, you know. And, that's what we believe in the Christian faith. That's what's stated in the scripture."

So there you have it - Homeland Security are working with local police departments and religious leaders to prepare for the declaration of martial law and in particular developing techniques they will employ during the crisis to "quell dissent."

Phony Christian leaders are brainwashing their congregations to accept the premise that the totalitarian police state is "of the Lord" and that they should get on their knees and lick jackboots while the round-ups take place as citizens are processed into quarantine zones and detention camps by the National Guard and U.S. troops returning from Iraq.

The precedent for mass gun confiscation and martial law in times of a real or manufactured emergency was set during Hurricane Katrina, when police and National Guard patrols forced home owners - even in areas unaffected by the hurricane - to hand over their legally owned firearms at gunpoint.

This is a clear precursor for the imminent declaration of a state of emergency, a scenario that President Bush codified in his recent Presidential Decision Directive of May 9th, which states in the event of a "catastrophic event" the President can take total control over the government and the country, bypassing all other levels of government at the state, federal, local, territorial and tribal levels, and thus ensuring total unprecedented dictatorial power.

The scope of the program is so secretive that even Homeland Security Committee member and Congressman Peter DeFazio was denied access to view the classified portion of the documents

Economic Collapse As

Economic Collapse As Precursor To Open Plan For Martial Law?
Many fear recession, bank run, strike on Iran or terror attack could signal green light for state of emergency

The open announcement of a program on behalf of the federal government that is recruiting clergy to aid the authorities in "quelling dissent," gun confiscation and forced relocation in the event of martial law has many worried that the current economic plunge could be the precursor for a state of emergency in America.

You must have read my mind Chris.

That is exactly what I was thinking. This morning I noticed the stock market was still going down both here and abroad. When the manipulated world wide "Great Depression" hits, Bush will surely declare martial law. I think the next 9/11 will be financial. I would bet on it. As far as the clergy going along, so be it. I know very few people who still go to any church and listen to such nonsense......... "God save us from Religion."

yeah, even the MSM is

yeah, even the MSM is starting to reluctantly ring the alarm a bit on our so called "fluid" economy. the middle class is dying and the middle class has always been the class that rose up and fought back when it was needed. the rich have no reason to fight back while the poor have no resources so its a race to destroy the middle class and destroy any resistance. China owns us anyway but thats another story i guess.....

There are still some of us middle class ....

who are aware enough to continue to teach our young about the problems that they face in their future.

Just tonight I was having dinner with my 26 year old son and he said to me that he has a feeling that he is the end of the line as far as the truth and justice that his mother and I taught him. He is an Eagle Scout class of 1995.

I warned him that I see it getting worse until we can turn it around. I told him that I had written to the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America and told them that I had difficulty with a change in the requirements for the Citizenship in the Nation Merit Badge. In 2005 it was completely rewritten from the 1984 requirements. Most were the same but my letter was about a new requirement that I thought was intended as a form of behaviour modification of the youth.

The new requirement was that each Scout would have to watch a major news program for one hour a night for 5 nights or read the front page of a major newspaper 5 days in a row and discuss the national news with his merit badge counselor.

I mentioned to them that the CIA has had control over the media for years and that even the Presidential Order #51 did not make the front page of any newspaper in the country. The best it did to my knowledge is Page 14 in Iowa. The failure of the TV News to investigate news items is demonstrated by the failure to bring out the truth about what is actually going on in this country.

I also told them that I was doing my best to do my duty to God and my country as required by their own Scout Oath to bring my thoughts to their attention so that they could keep their mission as stated in their website. I don't have the link here at home. It is in my office.

I suggested a change to the requirement to have the Scout select an important national issue such as 9/11, corrupt government or whatever research it and discuss it with the counselor.

I don't know if they will even respond to my letter and if they do it should prove to be worthy of a separate blog for better or worse.

I just called KSLA 12 news in Shreveport, LA in order to speak with the director of this segment. I found out his name is Jeff Ferrell.
