Are You on the List?

Are you one of the millions of Americans that have been designated a threat to national security by the U.S. government? Will you be subject to detention when martial law is imposed during a major national emergency? There is actually a list that contains the names of at least 8 million Americans known as Main Core that the U.S. intelligence community has been compiling since the 1980s.

Edward Snowden revealed to the world a great deal about our government and what they are doing. The truth is that the U.S. government is not just gathering information on all of us; but that the U.S. government has used this information to create a list of threats to national security that the government would potentially watch, question or even detain during a national crisis. If you have ever been publicly critical of the government, there is a very good chance that you are on that list.

The following is how Wikipedia describes Main Core:

“Main Core is the code name of a database maintained since the 1980s by the federal government of the United States. Main Core contains personal and financial data on millions of U.S. citizens believed to be threats to national security. The data, which comes from the NSA, FBI, CIA and other sources, is collected and stored without warrants or court orders. The database’s name derives from the fact that it contains ‘copies of the main core or essence of each item of intelligence information on Americans produced by the FBI and the other agencies of the U.S. intelligence community.”
 

It was Christopher Ketchum of Radar Magazine that first reported on the existence of Main Core. At the time, the shocking information that he revealed did not get that much attention. That is quite a shame, because it should have sent shockwaves across the nation.

According to a senior government official who served with high-level security clearances in FIVE administrations, “there exists a database of Americans, who, often for the slightest and most trivial reason, are considered unfriendly, and who, in a time of panic, might be incarcerated. The database can identify and locate perceived ‘enemies of the state’ almost instantaneously.” He and other sources told Radar that the database is sometimes referred to by the code name Main Core. One knowledgeable source claims that 8 million Americans are now listed in Main Core as potentially suspect. In the event of a national emergency, these people could be subject to everything from heightened surveillance to direct questing and possibly even detention.

Federal law is somewhat vague as to what might constitute a “national emergency.” Executive Orders issued over the last three decades define it as a “natural disaster, military attack, [or] technological or other emergency,” while Department of Defense documents include eventualities like “riots, acts of violence, insurrections, unlawful obstructions or assemblages, [and] disorder prejudicial to public law and order.” According to one news report, even “national opposition to U.S. military invasion abroad” could be a trigger.

If that list contained 8 million names in 2008, how big might the list be today? Later on in 2008, Tim Shorrock of salon.com also reported on Main Core:

Dating back to the 1980s and known to government insiders as “Main Core,” the database reportedly collects and stores – without warrants or court orders – the names and detailed data of Americans considered threats to national security. According to several former U.S. government officials with extensive knowledge of intelligence operations, Main Core in its current state apparently contains a VAST amount of personal data on Americans, including NSA intercepts of bank and credit card transactions and the results of surveillance efforts by the FBI, the CIA and other agencies. One former intelligence official described Main Core as “an emergency internal security database system” designed for use by the military in the event of a national catastrophe, a suspension of the Constitution or the imposition of martial law.
 

Is America in trouble? Remember the book 1984? We are nearly there. It is written in Deuteronomy 28:15-68 the curses that would come upon us and overtake us IF we turned our back upon God!!! Where do we stand???
