Ground broke on the project March 2nd and appears to be near completion according to a video recorded by a local, who seemed distressed over the FEMA complex.

The Mayor’s report also states the mega complex will be available for other City purposes, subject to FEMA limitations, while not in use for emergency situations.

A FEMA Safe Room is designed with the intention to protect locals from natural disasters, as defined by FEMA.

Near-absolute protection means that, based on our current knowledge of tornadoes and hurricanes, the occupants of a safe room built in accordance with FEMA guidance will have a very high probability of being protected from injury or death.”

Mayor Musselwhite details that the Federal government used American tax dollars to cover 95% of the costs of the massive building that is expected to be finished in the spring of 2016.

  • Total square footage is approximately 12,777.
  • Useable square footage is approximately 9,069.
  • Federal funds will provide 95% of the total cost.
  • Construction part of the grant is $2,583,526.
  • Construction bid for $2,667,000 was awarded to Murphy & Sons.

These types or shelters are not new, this is one of many popping up around the country and have also been used to help immigrants.

Tension around the subject of FEMA buildings are at an all time high after a recent US Army document called for detaining “political activists” at re-education camps staffed by military-hired “PSYOP officers” in both America and abroad. The US Army training manual dated February 2010 is available to view on the website

According to RT, the 326 page manual was to be distributed solely to the US Defense Department and its contractors, and that it must be “destroy[ed] by any method that will prevent disclosure of contents or construction of the document.”

“This manual addresses I/R [Internment and Resettlement] operations across the spectrum of conflict, specifically the doctrinal paradigm shift from traditional enemy prisoner of war (EPW) operations to the broader and more inclusive requirements of detainee operations,” the paper’s authors explain in the first paragraph of the documents preface. From there, it goes on to explain that the methods of psychological warfare and brainwashing of persons applies to “US military prisoners, and multiple categories of detainees (civilian internees [CIs], retained personnel [RP], and enemy combatants), while resettlement operations are focused on multiple categories of dislocated civilians (DCs).”

Throughout the manual, the DoD outlines methods to go about detaining US military prisoners captured for both “battlefield and nonbattlefield confinement,” how to rehabilitate them to “ensure a successful return to society” and “psychological operations (PSYOP), practices and procedures to support I/R operations.”

Fifty-six pages into the manual, its authors explain the role of psychological operations officers regarding internment and resettlement, and explain that they will be responsible for developing methods designed “to pacify and acclimate detainees or DCs to accept U.S. I/R facility authority and regulations.” PSYOP officers, the manual adds, identify “malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders within the facility who may try to organize resistance or create disturbances.”

The manual also demands that the PSYOP officers overseeing the detainment camps identify “political activists” for indoctrination.

It is particularly disturbing in light of the fact that the president recently acquired the power to indefinitely detain US citizens without trial or conviction through the NDAA act. note particulars of the manual by writing, “We have exhaustively documented preparations for the mass internment of citizens inside America, but this is the first time that language concerning the re-education of detainees, in particular political activists, has cropped up in our research.”

The manual lists the following roles that are designated to the “PSYOP team”.

– Identifies malcontents, trained agitators, and political leaders within the facility who may try to organize resistance or create disturbances.

– Develops and executes indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes.

– Identifies political activists.

– Provides loudspeaker support (such as administrative announcements and facility instructions when necessary).

– Helps the military police commander control detainee and DC populations during emergencies.

– Plans and executes a PSYOP program that produces an understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions.

FEMA has also been involved in building “Safe Rooms” in local schools to protect children during disasters. Recently on the 10 year anniversary of hurricane Katrina schools gave tours to the public, Hattiesburg American reports.
