"I care that too much power gets in one place," Paul said in a speech in Lexington at the Kentucky Association of Counties conference.
Yesterday Rand Paul was sounding off on Barack Obama's Executive Amnesty when he suddenly went down a curious path. Soon his warning of too much power being in the hands of one individual became a sobering historical reminder, and possibly a future warning, of American Internment Camps.
Steve Watson provides this partial transcript and commentary:
"Think of what happened in World War II where they made the decision. The president issued an executive order. He said to Japanese people 'we're going to put you in a camp. We're going to take away all your rights and liberties and we're going to intern you in a camp.'" Paul continued, citing then-President Franklin D. Roosevelt's executive order authorizing the internments.
"We shouldn't allow that much power to gravitate to one individual. We need to separate the power," Paul urged.
The Senator, who has expressed support for a potential lawsuit against the immigration order, asked the audience to consider the bigger picture of Obama's actions and the precedent he is now setting by so openly bypassing Congress and the political system put into place by the founders.
"The danger of what the president is doing on immigration isn't necessarily the details of what he's doing now," Paul said. "The danger is allowing so much power to gravitate to one person."
Is Rand Paul speaking hypothetically or does he know more than he cares to tell us?
Do you ever get the feeling that there are still some semi-good people in government that might be trying to warn us by dropping subtle hints? They can't or won't come out and say things in plain words because they fear they would jeopardize their careers, but they want to say something to speak to those who might be able to "decode" what they are saying.
Am I crazy?
Maybe, but I believe these subtle warnings are present for those who might be able to recognize them.
If you want a perfect example of that, watch Congressman Thomas Massie's video about the secret 9/11 documents. He talks about the 28 redacted pages from the 9/11 report and calls for the truth to be told to America. Most who follow the Truthful Media already know what those 28 pages likely contain.
Massie doesn't really believe the government will tell the truth, but he can still, however, let the American people know that the government is lying.
Massie is trying to communicate with those of us who already know of or suspect foul play. He is simply verifying the leaks we have already discovered. He knows that those documents won't be declassified. He is not stupid. But he still feels the need to warn us.
Sometimes you have to interpret what these people say. Is it a warning? Are they simply bound by how much they can tell us? I would say the answer to both questions is very likely "yes."
Back in February, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia issued statements quite similar to those of Rand Paul that might be considered a warning as well.
On Tuesday Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was quoted, in a Washington Examiner article, discussing the possible return of World War II style "internment camps":
Justice Antonin Scalia predicts that the Supreme Court will eventually authorize another a wartime abuse of civil rights such as the internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II.
"You are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again," Scalia told the University of Hawaii law school while discussing Korematsu v. United States, the ruling in which the court gave its imprimatur to the internment camps.
So a respected Senator and Supreme Court Justice are talking about the possibility of Internment camps on U.S. soil…
Should that serve as a warning of what is coming?
Or is it simply reminding us that it could happen here?
Does it really matter?
Either way it is cause for concern and FEMA Camps are not a conspiracy theory. Any government worth their salt is going to have a contingency plan for a "just in case" scenario. Of course, there are plans to incarcerate huge numbers of people, should it be deemed necessary. A form of that plan likely exists, in some fashion, with every national government on Planet Earth.
In case you are ready to open your eyes, click here to learn about REX-84 and a plan for mass incarceration that was written 30 years ago by a very familiar American historical figure. Because, whether Paul and Scalia are trying to warn us, or just reminding us that things might someday get bad, FEMA Camps are real and every American needs to know that.Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
