There are a lot of claims on websites that promote the FEMA Camp conspiracy theories and the locations of the alleged interment/concentration/prison camps. From my research into these locations, many of these websites have very common trends to them and the locations that are posted.
Here are some things that I have found to be quite common with these location claims, and the websites that promote them:
The claims about these alleged FEMA camp locations tend to be all alike, word by word.
Many of these websites "expose" these "locations" appear to do a lot of copying and pasting of these claims from other websites. Many times these claims are exactly the same, including misspellings, and lack of any real research.
Many websites list completely bogus locations.
While many websites misidentify what a location is, or what's at a location, some of the locations that are claimed never had what was claimed to be there to being with. A good example of this would be the claim that there is a renovated Japanese interment camp in Josephine County, Oregon. There was never a Japanese interment camp in Josephine County, Oregon, and thus the claim is bogus.
Many websites that list locations sometimes have little to no information on those locations.
I've seen a lot of location claims that have very little, to next to none, to no information about the location what so ever. Even the most detailed of claims often are only have about two to three of sentences worth, and provide no in depth details, or creditable evidence to back up the claim that the location is in fact an interment/concentration/prison camp.
Any true facts given about a location still fails to prove anything.
Yes, sometimes these websites will actually list facts about a location. The problem is that these facts are often muddled with unproven allegations. Even when they aren't, they still do not prove that the location is a FEMA camp.
Area 51 is not listed as a FEMA camp location.
This one surprised me. Despite all of the conspiracy theories that have been made about this place, being a FEMA camp location is apparently not one of them...
There are often more claims of total locations then there are locations listed.
Many web sites claim there are 600 to over 800 known locations for these alleged prison camps, yet these websites never include that many locations in their locations list. Of course many websites will contain a kind of "disclaimer" about those missing locations by putting up something like this near or at the bottom of their list:
- There are many other locations not listed above that are worthy of consideration as a possible detention camp site, but due to space limitations and the time needed to verify, could not be included here. Virtually all military reservations, posts, bases, stations, & depots can be considered highly suspect (because it is "federal" land). Also fitting this category are "Regional Airports" and "International Airports" which also fall under federal jurisdiction and have limited-access areas. Mental hospitals, closed hospitals & nursing homes, closed military bases, wildlife refuges, state prisons, toxic waste dumps, hotels and other areas all have varying degrees of potential for being a detention camp area. The likelihood of a site being suspect increases with transportation access to the site, including airports/airstrips, railheads, navigable waterways & ports, interstate and US highways. Some facilities are "disguised" as industrial or commercial properties, camouflaged or even wholly contained inside large buildings (Indianapolis) or factories. Many inner-city buildings left vacant during the de-industrialization of America have been quietly acquired and held, sometimes retrofitted for their new uses.
Many of the location claims have been around for years.
During my research I've noticed that many of these location claims have been around for a very long time, in some cases well over a decade now, and yet the claims are nearly the same, with no new information.
Rex 84 and several Executive Orders are often listed to try to help prove the existence of these FEMA camps.
Yes, our government has done some pretty messed up things in the past, and Rex 84 is one of them, but from what I understand of Rex 84 it was a thought experiment that was created in 1984 (back when the Cold War was still hot) about what would need to be done if in the unlikely event of large scale civil unrest, and that no actual military training was done. Go here to learn more.
As for the Executive Orders, these websites tend to only give the author's summarized version of the Executive Order, which is often times only a sentence about one part that is often taken out of context of something that can be several pages long. What they usually do not give is a link to the actual Executive Order itself. They also don't tell you if the Executive Order has been revoked or not either, which many of them listed happen to be.
No location claims are ever taken down when proven to be false or out right bogus.
While you might see a new "location" being posted, you'll most likely never see one taken down after they have been proven to be completely false and/or bogus.
