How did your congress critter vote?  You should know and when the time comes, hold them accountable!

HR 1540 Recorded Vote, December 14th, 2011 at 6:58pm EST

The vote was 283 Ayes to 136 Noes with 14, including Ron Paul, Not Voting
Of the Aye votes, 190 were Republican and 93 were Democrat
Of the Noe votes, 43 were Republican and 93 were Democrat
8 Republicans and 6 Democrats were not present to vote

This bill is the joint conference committee revision of Senate Bill 1867 which contains provisions that gives every US president from now forward the discretion to have American citizens indefinitely detained without charges being filed, trial by a jury of their peers, or any due process allowed.

Obama is expected to sign this bill into law.

IF there are elections in 2012 in this country, every single Congressional representative who betrayed the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the American people, by voting “yes” for this abomination needs to be voted out of office, and handed their hat.

DHS advising suspicion of people who don’t use credit cards – 12160info

A YouTube video being distributed by DHS implies you are “weird” if you prefer to pay in cash instead of using a credit card!  Guess their bosses in the banking industry have put out the word that those merchant fees need to be protected as a matter of national security!

Dismal’ prospects: 1 in 2 Americans are now poor or low income

50% of the US population now poor?  Yup!  According to an article published by Associated Press, half the population is now poor.  Funny thing is, only a small percentage of those qualify for any sort of “safety net”.

Segment #3: Feature Presentation – Best of 2011 SmartScarecrow Show Review!

Presenter:  SmartScarecrow
Estimated time:  30 minutes

Tonight our feature presentation is about US!  Yeah, time for a little bragging.  We will see clips taken from some of the best shows put on during 2011 and discuss future plans for the show.

This will be the last show for 2011.  As we enter the holiday period, I have plans to spend time with family and friends giving thanks for our good fortune and crying on each others shoulders  about our bad.  The next scheduled live broadcast will be on January 5th, 2012.

In 2011, we produced 47 shows of which 42 are posted for on demand viewing at YouTube.  That is more than 60 hours of content.

A few interesting factoids!

According to YouTube analytics

During 2011, The SmartScarecrow Show was viewed on YouTube 133,385 times.
Of those, 93,108 watched directly from YouTube, 8,831 watched from an outside source and 31,760 watched from a mobile device.

The audience for The SmartScarecrow Show typically Male (93.9%), 45-55 years old (42.2%).

Many have made suggestions what I need to do to attract some 25-35 year old women to the audience so we have a better balance, but I just don’t look that good in a Speedo and I ain’t gonna wax my chest for anyone!  Maybe we can get Zero to do it!

20111208 – Tommey Reed’s rotory piston engine

Segment #1:  This week in free energy

Presenter:  Sterling Allan, CEO, founder of New Energy Congress
Estimated Time:  20 minutes

Segment #2:  Scarecrow’s News Rant – Is it time to look forward to 3 hots and a cot in nice warm FEMA Work Camp?
Presenter:  an editorial by SmartScarecrow
Estimated time:  10 minutes

Item 1:  The Militarization of the American Police, the Shredding of Our Constitutional Rights
Read the source article at –

The militarization of police forces throughout the United States cannot be taken in a vacuum, but is part of the ongoing drift towards a police state. The government has said for years that American citizens on U.S. soil may be targets in the war on terror, and is using anti-terrorism laws to crush dissent.

Indeed, you can be labeled as or suspected of being a terrorist simply for questioning war, protesting anything, asking questions about pollution or about Wall Street shenanigans, supporting Ron Paul, being a libertarian, holding gold, or stocking up on more than 7 days of food. Government agencies such as FEMA are allegedly teaching that the Founding Fathers should be considered terrorists. So perhaps that means that any people who like American values are “terrorist sympathizers”.

Item 2:  Detainment Camps Going Live: FEMA Seeking Subcontractors to Provide “Temporary Camp Services”
Read the source article at –

For the better part of two decades FEMA detention camps were believed to be a figment of tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists. As more information over the years has been made available through alternative news researchers like Alex Jones in his full length documentary Police State 4 and former governor Jesse Venutra’s FEMA camp exposé, it is becoming increasingly clear that the government has been taking steps for quite some time to ensure a rapid and effective response in the event of a national disaster or U.S. military deployment on American soil.

As many of our readers know, the U.S. Senate recently passed the National Defense Authorization Act, which, it has been argued, authorizes the establishment of domestic war zones and the subsequent detention of those who are suspected of engaging in terrorist-related activity – including, arguably, U.S. citizens. What you may not know, however, is that just days after the passage of the act reports are surfacing that the Federal Emergency Management Agency, under the auspices of the Department of Homeland Security, is requisitioning private contractors to provide services for government, defense & infrastructure pertaining specifically to FEMA activities with respect to emergency services.

At first glance, this may seem like no big deal. Why shouldn’t the government prepare for emergencies?

However, a review of an email made available through Info Wars from Kellogg, Brown & Root Services (KBR), a subsidiary of mega government contractor Haliburton, notes that the contracting opportunities available through the government and KBR are specifically for “temporary camp services and facilities.”

    Key Excerpts from the email and Project Overview:

    -Kellogg, Brown and Root Services (KBR) is seeking subscontractors on a national basis to provide temporary camp services and facilities as part of its current and future emergency services contracts for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and state/local government agencies.

    -The continental US will be broken up into five regions – Services will be required in each State within each region.

    -Establish services listed below within 72 hours for initial set-up and respond within 24 hours for incremental services. This is a CONTINGENCY PROJECT and it should be stressed that lead times will be short with critical requirements due to the nature of emergency responses. Subcontractors must be flexible and able to handle multiple, shifting priorities in an emergency environment.  Supply lines needed must be short but not necessarily pre-positioned.

    -The personnel on site to be covered by these services will depend on the size and scope of the recovery effort, but for estimating purposes the camp will range in size from 301 to 2,000 persons for up to 30 days in length.

The full RFI from KBR is available for your perusal via SHTFplan and details, among other things, the host of services that are required for temporary camp facilities:

    Catering Services
    Temporary Fencing and Barricades
    Hand Washing Stations
    Laundry Services
    Medical Services
    Office Trailers / Administration Areas
    Potable Water
    Power Generation, Fuel Delivery / Supply and Electrical Distribution
    Refuse Collection
    Shower and Toilet
    Tentage, Flooring, Electrical & HVAC
    Waste Water Removal

For all intents and purposes, FEMA / DHS is now activating camps across the nation – in all 50 states – and ramping them up for detainment if and when the need arises.

Security, while not mentioned in the KBR release, is an issue addressed previously under guidance of the U.S. military. In an August 2009 report we highlighted that the Army is Hiring for Internment/Resettlement Specialists, in which we noted:

    It seems that the US Government is preparing for a high volume of military prisoners. We suspect these will not be foreign nationals, as we either kill them or detain them outside of the USA. So, one must conclude that these corrections, interment and resettlement specialists will be supervising US citizens. The military is calling them internment camps or resettlement camps. Back in World War II they were called by a different name.

Additionally, we have learned over the last couple of years that FEMA has  requisitioned manufacturers for 140 Million Packets of Food, Blankets, and Body Bags, while the U.S. military is Actively War Gaming ‘Large Scale Economic Breakdown’ and ‘Civil Unrest’ which includes training for over 20,000 US military personnel for contingencies that may include riots and/or mass detentions.

While mainstream media will not report this, and most of the population will either ignore it or chalk it off as being once again blown out of proportion by the alternative news sphere, the evidence is right in front of us – it is overwhelming and very compelling.

Our government is, without a doubt, preparing for an event(s) that will likely result in the mass detentions of tens of thousands of individuals across the entire United States.
