Alex Jones, the sometimes-entertaining nationwide radio host based out of Austin, has seldom met a conspiracy theory he didn't embrace whole-heartedly. He's the author of 9/11:Descent Into Tyranny which, as you might guess, outlines the New World Order's plans to enslave us all.

His latest call to arms concerns Houston. It seems we are about to be an armed camp, and authorities will all but be feeding us cat food like in District 9: "The Houston Police Department is poised to do what no other civilian police department in the United States has yet to publicly do. On the desk of the Chief of Police is the authorization to begin training officers to staff checkpoints at key infrastructure points throughout the city."

Jones' information comes from "Sarge, an Anonymous Police Officer" and it outlines what the NWO is no doubt calling "anti-terror training" in an effort to keep your eye off the enslavement ball:

The Special Response Group, which was created in 1992 to deal with protestors at the Republican National Convention is the main crowd control unit in the Houston Police Department. They receive 40 hours of training annually in riot control and mass arrest scenarios. This group has a sub-group called the Hard Team, which receive an additional 32 hours of more intense training per year. This training includes pain compliance techniques, dispersal of chemical agents, rubber bullets, crowd control grenades, as well as many other less-lethal munitions.

Now, the Hard Team is poised to get another sub-group called the Checkpoint Team.

And what will the ominous-sounding Checkpoint Team do? "This Checkpoint Team will be armed with Assault Rifle Carbines with shoot to kill orders and tasked with manning sensitive areas such as airports, chemical refineries, and any other critical infrastructure locations," says "Sarge."

Hmmm. Sounds suspiciously just like the kinds of places you'd expect them to guard should a terror threat occur. Luckily, Sarge is able to make a leap of logic that probably never occurred to you.

"By the very nature of their training," he writes, "it is but only a small step for them to be tasked to man check points throughout the city, turning it into a defacto internment camp."

Well, yeah, but...by the very nature of their training, cops could go SWAT-storming into every house in Houston whenever they felt like it. They know how to do it. It doesn't mean they will.

Even more ominous: Houston will lead the way to such armed encampments everywhere.

"This will be the first civilian police agency in the nation to begin this type of training, so it should be seen as the "beta-test" for expansion to other police agencies nation-wide (as is very common in the law enforcement field)," Sarge writes.
