Freelance reporter Christopher Ketcham, author of a new piece called “The Last Roundup” for Radar magazine, discusses the “Continuity Of Government” (COG) plan to keep government operating after a national emergency such as a nuclear strike, effectively suspending the Constitution and turning the country into a fascist military dictatorship, the history of COG going back to the Cold War and it’s partial implementation after 9/11, DHS’s “Main Core” and other databases and lists of dissidents kept ready by the government, the measures in place for total police state after the next crisis, the pending collapse of America resulting from the suicide-pact with the military industrial complex and the possibilities to reverse this course.

  1. Thank you so much for raising awareness about 9/11 2, which I agree would trigger the absolute end of this country. They need this event to happen not only to finish the police state transformation, but to preempt the war crimes tribunals that are otherwise right around the corner.

  2. Christopher Ketcham is the best. Man it was totally worth the wait. What´s he doing in France? Chris we need you here.

    I love Ketcham, love Radar Mag, love Antiwar radio–absolutely love it. Keep up the great work, Scott.

  3. To reverse this course, IMPEACH BUSH AND CHENEY NOW BEFORE THEY DO ANYTHING ELSE REALLY INSANE AND ILLEGAL! It’s never too late to uphold the Rule of Law and to hold those criminals in the White House accountable!

    Impeach Bush and Cheney NOW

    Defense of the Constitution Knows No Party

    The Bush administration has illegally seized and imprisoned Americans without benefit of their trial by jury, has spied on Americans without warrant in violation of the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution, has lied America into a disastrous war, and has betrayed an American intelligence officer, who was working on weapons of mass destruction networks, to our enemies (Valerie Plame.)

    Impeachment hearings against Vice President Dick Cheney are now a distinct possibility, thanks to a recent outpouring of public support for impeachment by Americans across the political spectrum. Your calls and faxes to House Judiciary Committee members are needed to keep up the pressure.

    Leave a message for your Congressman, to demand he obey his oath to “defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Act now to restore your rights and the rule of law bequeathed to us by our Founding Fathers, which brave men have died defending throughout our history.

    Call the House Judiciary Committee

    202-225-3951
    and demand that Impeachment hearings begin ASAP!

    *What Happened to Make This All Possible?

    On November 6, 2007, Rep. Dennis Kucinich brought H.Res.799, for the impeachment of Cheney, to the House Floor for debate. It was broadcast on CSPAN. A sudden outpouring of public support for impeachment forced lawmakers to keep the resolution alive. Democrats, most of whom currently resist demands for impeachment, were unwilling to kill the bill with the public watching. Republicans and some Democrats, mindful of impeachment sentiment, voted to debate the bill, but failed. At the end of the day, Americans of both parties had made it clear whose “table” this is, and that they want to see impeachment on it.

  4. Great interview.

    What will happen in the coming months and years is that overwhelming evidence of massive government corruption will continue to be revealed and disseminated on the internet, and it will become correspondingly difficult for Joe Public to ignore.

    This will increasingly delegitimize our government. This process will continue to increase exponentially along side the importance of the internet.

    All this makes a Soviet Union style collapse very, very likely. Evidence of massive corruption will continue to pile up until it is so high that even the political and bureaucratic classes will become fed up with the current system.

    This will provide a crisis/opportunity, and whether it results in a change for the better or for the worse depends upon how organized, unified, and ready to lead the forces of democracy are at that point.

  5. He is so right. The majority of the American people just do what they are told.

  6. [...] is also an interview with Mr. Ketcham by Antiwar Radio’s Scott Horton that I provide the link to here for download. It is imperative for Americans to begin to understand the Continuity Of Government programs for it [...]

  7. “”Freelance reporter Christopher Ketcham,”

    They all now are working and paid for by the CIA with deficit dollars to lead others astay of what is really important, or you would not be hearing it in the media. They are trying to find who’s not “with” politics.

    The word is on the street. Search + Share ~ Magnetrition

    They instill fear, causing many to remain in their homes, politically assigned communities, thus becoming humanitarily unsociable. This limiting their access to information to that of their controlled media/propaganda outlets. Their minds, their thinking, becoming indoctrinated with the darkness of the tainted truths of political correctness. Rather than gaining true enlightenment by way of exercising their free will, choice, concerning exposure to the information offered by the whole of reality.

  8. Christopher Ketcham is a real patriot and a REAL AMERICAN – and I “got your back”, as they say.
