Where is your nearest FEMA camp? An NBC news crew may have stumbled across one in upper state New York…
Executive Directive 51 was signed by George W. Bush in 2007, which gives the US Federal gov’t the power to declare impose martial law in the event a ‘national emergency’, giving the White House and Homeland Security (DHS) the ability to detain millions of Americans on US soil under Rex 84 and other military programs previously planned and run as inter-agency exercise drills.
A number of bloggers, patriot groups, survivalists and preppers have compiled lists of FEMA Camp locations, but much of the reporting is still isolated and anecdotal.
One reason why evidence is relatively sparse could be because it’s not easy to film at these secluded sites with hired security personnel intimidating press and media.
It’s not just alternative media outlets being harassed by privatized government contractors. Even mainstream media crews are being chased off of these secret sites too…

There are some strange aspects to this report to begin with. Local NBC news claim they were simply filming a news package for the “129th anniversary of Ulysses S. Grant’s passing” (bizarre anniversary date, 129 years?), and then decided to use an abandoned prison as the backdrop while he was speaking to the camera. Quite the odd incident occurred however when a prison Lieutenant rolled up,
According local NBC affiliate WNYT, “Corrections employees who are still working at the empty prison made every attempt to stop Mark Mulholland from doing his job.” This included a demand from a private contractor to ‘get off state land’ and then to hand over the tape – or face arrest.
Why the secrecy? Why the stress on the part of the private prison contractors (from Wakenhut, or Serco?) when it’s supposed to be ‘closed’? Clearly, this is not just an “empty prison” as WNYT reported.
Watch the incident here:
News crew threatened with arrest and confiscation of footage after stumbling across a potentially operational FEMA camp facility inside a “closed” prison
WILTON, NY – WNYT News 13′s Mark Mulholland and his cameraman had a few rather interesting encounters with overly aggressive State correctional officers while trying to do a story on a historic monument, Grant’s Cottage, which is located at the top of Mount McGregor.
During the encounters, which were all caught on video, the crew was repeatedly asked to stop filming what appeared to be a closed prison facility in the backdrop.
“You are on State property right now. You can’t film here.”, said the officer after pulling up to the news crew on a public roadway in an aggressive manner with his unmarked vehicle. “You are going to leave the mountain now.”, the officer continued, insinuating that the news crew was on the mountain for a “different reason”.
After the conflict, the correctional officer, identified only as “Lieutenant Dorn”, radioed to his co-worker to block the roadway with another vehicle as the crew tried to enter the historic monument where the supposed “closed” prison facility.
Finally after bickering with Lt. Dorn and the State Police for over an hour, the crew managed to be released with all of their footage…
