This information is crucial if you really want to dive into the issues that this country has with individual liberty or the lack thereof. These plans for a martial law power grab that all of us "conspiracy theorists" have touted as a reality, at least in the planning stages, have been ridiculed and denounced by those on the left and the right. REX 84 is short for readiness excersise 1984. This is the blueprint for martial law in America, and it was penned by Lt. Col. Oliver North in1984 . Existence of this plan first revealed itself during the Iran Contra hearings in 1987. On July 5th 1987 the Miami Herald reporting that detention centers operating under FEMA, would need to be implemented via presidential signed proclamation, along with the signature of the Attorney General on a warrant, with a list of names attached. The REX 84 program was established, that in the event of a "mass exodus" of illegal aliens crossing the US/Mexico border, the government would have totalitarian rule over state and local governments. Let's see, illegal immigrants, Mexcan border, all of this is sounding vaguely familiar. Anyway, I'm getting off topic, REX 84 is broken down into two sub programs, Operation Cable Splicer, and Operation Garden Plot. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Slicer is the program for a Federal takeover of the state and local governments. The plan is there, and has been for decades, and we are now seeing the mass exoudus from Mexico. The President's approval numbers are tanking, he needs an "event" (think Reichstag). Be vigilant people, things could get real nasty real quick. I've given you some information here, go out and research this, be aware of the corruption in our government, and know that this is not a democrat or republican thing. For those of you that are paying attention, 1984 would have been during, that's right, the Reagan Administration. Do your own research, find truth, know what you believe, it is the only way to survive what is coming.
