FEMA sealing off Texas?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Hot news, just in. Buddy called me and said 9400 shortwave out of Austin Texas was screaming something about FEMA sealing the Texas Borders. The Station is now being jammed and is indecipherable. Anybody else can confirm this report? There has been a tremendous amount of highway patrol checkpoints on the Tx. interstates the last few days in addition to the military exercises. Somebody help me out here, I need to know if this is a radio hoax or for real.

Ialso recieved an e-mail a couple of days ago statine that a TX. highway patrol had stopped a truck hauling signs that said YOU ARE UNDERMARTIAL LAW. I dismissed that as a hoax, now am not so sure.

I sure hope that they are using a good quality sealant, such as GE 50 year silicone caulk.

-- Uncle Deedah (oncebitten@twiceshy.com), February 15, 1999.

Don't know how FEMA could seal the Texas border. Nobody else has been able to do it.

-- Vic (Roadrunner@compliant.com), February 15, 1999.

Hi Unc. I'm serious here, this info came from a friend of over 30 years and he is solid as a rock. What he told me is what he heard, you can take that to the bank. 9400 usually comes in clear as a bell on my shortwave, and is still carrying a strong signal today but the vocals are unintelligible.

-- Uncle Deedah (oncebitten@twiceshy.com), February 15, 1999.

I just wish someone could come up with another link other than WorldnetDaily concerning what's going on in Texas and the mil. I've been doing a search for more than an hour and haven't come up with anything yet. But then again my search engines haven't brought up the WorldnetDaily links either. Keywords I used were military operations kingsville texas etc.

I'm serious, too. One Bagelry per block is MORE than enough.

Seriously, I'm in Austin, racking my brains for corroborating sources.

-- Lisa (for@real.now), February 15, 1999.

I've been searching for approximately 2-3hours myself, Chris. Haven't found one single story out there besides WorldNetDaily. What's going on here????? Is this a hoax? Hey Texans, what's going on down there?

-- BParker (BParker201@aol.com), February 15, 1999.

well I just got off ICQ with my buddy. He says the radio announcer was real excited, reported that sections of the Tx. coast had military attacks underway involving Black helicopters, and that He had gotten inside information that FEMA was preparing to seal the interstate borders out of Tx. My mother came in from Dallas last night and says they had a massive task force set up on I-20 stopping traffic and profiling. Looks like we may have a nuke or some bio-chem weapons floating around in Tx. and they are trying to coral them. That is just my best guess, not hard intel.

-- Nikoli Krushev (doomsday@y2000.com), February 15, 1999.

Nikoli: where was the truck with the signs stopped? I can call some friends who have cop friends.

Hi Lisa, I have already deleted that e-mail but I believe it gave the location as south of Waco, perhaps near the Temple area. It didn't look like credible information when I got it, and it was a forwarded message. The originator was unknown to me.

I just got back from Texas, (Beaumont, Orange, Port arthur area), and if anyone is trying to seal off Texas they might want to think about Interstate I10 too. The damn thing is wide open and normal traffic is flowing through.

Hey EVERYBODY? Dontt laugh at nIKOLI. AT THIS MOMENT, NOW RIGHT NOW THE BORDER between North and South Carolina IS BEING SPACKLED BY FEMA!!!! I have also BEEN told by very reliable sources that WHEN IT is dry IT WILL BE SANDED!!!!


-- Dieter (questions@toask.com), February 15, 1999.

I'm a Texan, too, and have not seen or heard anything out of the ordinary. I'm in Northeast Texas close to both I-20 and I-30. I'm the former business editor at the daily newspaper, so I have contacts there. I'll try to find out if there's anything to this. Kinda doubt it, though I did see a state trooper giving a ticket to a Mexican this morning.

-- Vic (Roadrunner@compliant.com), February 15, 1999.

Thank you Diane! I was just about to e-mail you...have read many of your posts with your excellent investigating! I knew if anyone could get at the bottom of this, you could! Let us know the latest scoop or poop!! Thanks again!

-- BParker (BParker201@aol.com), February 15, 1999.


If this were true it would be all over the TV and there is no way they could keep the media quiet about something this major.

Why would you make something up like this??


-- PMM (grute22@yahoo.com), February 15, 1999.

I am not making anything up. I don't know if there is anything to this or not. I am just trying to find out the truth. The info I gave was reported on the air, 9400 shortwave today. My friend said immediately after the announcement that FEMA was preparing to seal off the TX interstate borders that jamming began on that frequencey only. I have verified that the signal is being jammed on my own shortwave. That is all I know.

-- Nikoli Krushev (doomsday@y2000.com), February 15, 1999.

9400 MHz isn't being jammed. This is WGTG out of NW Georgia, and sometime in the afternoon thwey switch over from AM transmission mode to single sideband (SSB)mode, which is unintelligible with a standard AM-only shortwave radio. This might be why the signals sound garbled. I heard the entire broadcast, and the host (he also has an AM radio program out of Houston, I believe) *suggested* that perhaps the operations in Kingsville and Port Aransas (see WorldNet Daily's site) were a prelude to declaration of a state of martial law in Texas. He was obviously very upset about this situation during the broadcast (as was I), and some of his remarks were clearly speculation... although if you tuned in at just the wrong time you could have thought otherwise.

No doubt whatsoever that the goonverment is up to its usual evil business in Texas, but I don't think it's to the point of martial law just yet. Give it a few weeks (I am not joking).

If anyone is interested in a short course in shortwave listening, I'll post one, along with pertinent equipment recommendations and frerquencies..

-- Why2K? (who@knows.com), February 15, 1999.

Hang in there Nikki. If there is something going on, we'll find it! <:)=

-- Sysman (y2kboard@yahoo.com), February 15, 1999.

No nothing showing up so far. Believe me, it would have hit the wires if it was anything big.

Thanks, Why2K. Im interested in a short course in shortwave listening, along with pertinent equipment recommendations and frerquencies.

-- Diane J. Squire (sacredspaces@yahoo.com), February 15, 1999.

Why2k, I'd be interested in your SW info. I saw some info a couple of weeks ago in response to a post by Zorro. Freqs. mentioned were 9400, 5070, 5085,12160. I you have others, please start a new thread. Any other tips appreciated.

-- Puddintame (dit@dot.com), February 15, 1999.


I have been considering getting informed about short wave and the Ham bands. I would appreciate any info you could provide. This stuff in Texas is frightening, and I have lost faith in the networks and regular media to tell us what is really going on.

Naturally enough, as a Texan, I am consumed by hubris born of dedication to my home state and its heritage. Tell ya one thing, though, if the feds picked Texas to start some of this kind of stuff, they picked the wrong state.

Why2k Thanks. I would also be interested. Just purchased a shortwave and it seems to be more complicated than I thought.

-- Mike Lang (webflier@erols.com), February 15, 1999.

Why2k, thanks, that sounds like the explanation to me. My friend said he hadn't heard the entire broadcast, he tuned in just a few seconds before the signal went crazy. My shortwave isn't equipped with whatever switch it is you are talking about. I didn't even know they existed. I just bought it a couple of months ago, it is a DX-375 from radio shack.

-- Nikoli Krushev (doomsday@y2000.com), February 15, 1999.

Thanks all for the response, I'll post information on shortwave sometime this evening/early morning. BTW, Nikoli, that DX-375 is one of the best radios readily available in its price range. Like you said, it doesn't receive SSB, which is what WGTG was using for that broadcast.

Well no spam, I see you're still pouting over that thrashing I gave you on the federal reserve scam.

-- Nikoli Krushev (doomsday@y2000.com), February 15, 1999.

Dieter; You sir, are obviously not a drywall tradesman. One does not refer to finishing drywall as spackling. Spackling is the result of very loose bowels and an inability to reach the appropriate facility at just the right time.

-- KoFE (Onlyspackledonce@years.ago), February 15, 1999.

I don't know anything about sealing the borders, but last Thursday morning I was driving from San Antonio to Oklahoma City for my aunt's funeral and there were highway patrol all up and down I35. The first group of about 4-5? DPS cars were about 50 miles north of San Antonio (in San Marcos, TX) randomly stopping cars for, what a sign read, "Narcotics Checkpoints". The sign also warned "be prepared to stop". Very strange. They had various vehicles pulled over (mostly pick-ups and vans). Don't know what that was all about but I saw many, many DPS cars up to the Ft. Worth area. Perhaps they'd received some tips about some smuggling that was to take place.

-- Deborah (deboreb@texas.net), February 15, 1999.

Thanks for the info Deborah, that is pretty much what my mom described going on between Dallas and Longview on I-20.

-- Nikoli (doomsday@y2000.com), February 15, 1999.

Thanks to C.A. who sent me the links for caller.com via email, and also Diane.

The Corpus Cristi Online articles are quite different in tone than the ones in WorldnetDaily. Reading these articles, nothing is out of the ordinary and about doing the operations in secret "Carol Darby, a spokeswoman for Army Special Operations Command in Fort Bragg, said this week that the public never is notified before such exercises because it poses an security risk and also a danger to residents, who tend to gather to watch." That makes sense to me.

Deborah and others, while searching caller.com I came upon this article about drug traffic in TX, quite interesting.

http://www.te xnews.com/texas97/smuggle051897.html

I'm afraid that E. will respond that it's all propaganda and one more example how the police state is so deprived as to use innocent grannies and single women to brainwash us. But then again, it's naive to think that all grannies and single women are angelic and law abiding citizen with no greed of their own. Having worked with the public for many years, I know the contrary.

-- Chris (catsy@pond.com), February 15, 1999.

You sir are right Mr. Casty. GRANDPAS ARE OFTTEN SEEN SPACKLING AROUND THE HOUSE!!!! How hard would it be to have them join two STATES TOGETHER WITH MUD AND TAPE???? COULD you not simply tell them to fill in the joint between N. AND S. DAKOTA??? How would you know what STATE YOU ARE IN THEN???FEMA IS using our seniors to wipe out state lines with JOINT COMPOUND!!!! This will LEAD INEvITABLY to A one world GOVERNMENT WITHOUT BORDERS!!!THE BORDERS would be GONE!!! FILLED IN!!!!WE do still have time TO STOP THEM BETWEEN THE SEcond AND FINNISH COATS!!! HURRY

-- Dieter (questions@toask.com), February 15, 1999.

Also they will have exercises @ Ft Sam Houston and yes there are black chopers flying around..suspose to have some thing to do with Delta Forces exercises...rumors are rampart and late news on Tv finally carried the news..They tried to come into San Antonio and were told NO several times..funny..Ft Sam is smack daub downtown area of SA..Latest rumor is that it is preparation for when the Y2K crisis occurs and Clinton declares marial law???You figure it out..I can't....

-- wondering (gospurs1@webtv.net), February 15, 1999.

slightly subversive suggestion:

the paint that they use on those helicopters costs more than a thousand dollars per gallon...if one wanted to be annoying one might find some way of launching, oh, say, a large bunch of paintballs directly in front of one of them...personally I think the ones with fluorescent paint in them would be the most interesting.

of course, none of us would ever do anything like that...

If there are 'secret' military exercises going on, I really doubt there will be anything on the wires until they are over. Just my opinion.

-- Deborah the Prophetess (waitingfor@dust.settle), February 16, 1999.


That would be a real trick because nothing has worked so far!

I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary but then I live about a hundred miles west of Ft. Worth on I-20. I did mention this topic to my husband who used to work drug interdiction for the national guard. He said that the national guard often works drug interdiction with the DPS so it would not be uncommon to see uniformed national guard working with the DPS. This is particularly true for the border areas. This, of course, may or may not be the case here but it is a possibility.

Hooo! Scenes from "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" are zooming through my head.

I got a Valentine in the mail,...I'll give her a call tonight.

Seems to me any military checkpoints in any state smell of something rotten no matter what "reason" is spun for why. They've been doing "random" paramilitary-like police checkpoints in various suburbs in California metro areas since the beginning of the year, complete with the propaganda that this is "just keeping the good people safe from all those bad guys."

Gotta complete that work on the hyperdrive spacecraft and get the hell outta Dodge.

This morning about 3 flyovers of 4 black helicopters flew low over our property East of Sherman, TX scaring the dogs & cattle. Asked at local small airport & manager said it was season for DEA aerial surveillance. Guess it makes sense but it's middle of February and the little that's green (not much)is maybe 3 inches high.

Nikoli, consider this your dry run. As you noticed, you couldn't get verification quickly (blackout) You mentioned loading clips for hours. Rotate your clips. Keep half loaded, half not. rotate weekly, Consider all main arteries out of town blocked, find another way while it's peaceful. Think of anything else you could have done better or more efficiently.
