Communications Management Units- Is a type of self-contained group within a facility in the United States Federal Bureau of Prisons that severely restricts, manages and monitors all outside communication (telephone, mail, visitation) of inmates in the unit. The question would be that usually most facilities already monitor the telephone, mail and visitation. The units all have camera’s, phones are recorded and so are the visitations anyway so what set this unit different than any other unit. Well, it appears that this facility doesn’t have to answer many questions.
There are three type of prisons inside the United States.
- There is the one that the people see. In this instance, the prison works in conjunction with legal authorities and their activities are transparent.
- A second type of prison system is the privatized system which has degenerated into a system of slave labor which benefits Wall Street with free labor.
- The third type of prison is a FEMA camp for Political Prisoners. The Government admits to two such facilities and they call them Communications Management Units. The latter operates under the auspices of the NDAA. What is presented in this article is a brief review of the second and third types of prisons in the United States. After reading this article and watching the associated videos it can be said that any journalist who denies the existence of FEMA camps, is not worthy of the public’s consideration. All hats off to Will Potter!
Most prisoners per capita 2016
The United States only has about four percent of the world’s population. Yet, the U.S. presently incarcerates over one quarter (25%) of the world’s prison population. In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave, an American citizen has a six times greater chance of being incarcerated than in most other countries. We lead the world in per-capita incarceration rates and the number is growing by leaps and bounds. Over the past 45 years, our prison population has risen by 700%. Incredibly, one in 99 American adults are behind bars in the U.S. Further, one in 35 adults are under some form of correctional control (e.g. prison, jail, parole and probation populations). All too frequently, incarcerations are the result of low-level, non-violent offenses that makes for a large big business for the the nation. We spend more money on inmates than we do students in our education system. Example of this in the State of California spends more than $62,000 per inmate (2014-15) than students in K-12 $9,200.
Given our incarceration rates, it is apparent that the number one goal of our justice system is to incarcerate as many poor people as possible who do not have the economic means to fight back. These conditions are leading to the creation of a “prison industrial complex” that is just as real and just as corrupt as the military industrial complex.
Privatizing Probation for Fun and Profit
The prison industrial complex is motivated by profit. Privatized corporations have been given extra-judicial authority in this country to jail as many people as possible. And they have found an old way to accomplish this goal. The end result is that on an increasing basis, our prison population is made up of nonviolent offenders who cannot pay their court costs. In other words, our prisons are increasingly being turned into debtors prisons.
Prison for Profit
The GEO Group is not the only profitable privatized prison group. The Corrections Corporation of America is the largest private prison operator in the United States. The CCA procured its first private prison in, ironically, 1984.
Did you know that in many states, privatized prisons are guaranteed 90% to 100% occupancy rates by the government?
According to the California Prison Focus, “The private contracting of prisoners for work fosters incentives to lock people up. Prisons depend on this income. Corporate stockholders who make money off prisoners’ work lobby for longer sentences, in order to expand their workforce. The system feeds itself,” says a study by the Progressive Labor Party, which accuses the prison industry of being “an imitation of Nazi Germany with respect to forced slave labor and concentration camps.”
A Globalist Endeavor to Incarcerate As Many People As Possible
Privatized prisons are big business, very big business. The GEO Group, headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., claimed $115 million in profits on $1.52 billion in revenue in 2013. The GEO Group is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange, is worth $2.3 billion and it paid Chairman and Chief Executive George Zoley $4.62 million in total compensation in 2013.
According to public analysis from the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC), the largest holder in Corrections Corporation of America is Vanguard Group Incorporated. Vanguard is a major player in controlling several media giants. Vanguard is the third largest holder in Viacom and AOL Time Warner. Vanguard is also the third largest holder in the GEO Group. The GEO group is second only in size to the CCA with regard to privatized prisons as it controls over 100 correctional facilities in the US, UK, Australia and South Africa. In addition to CCA’s unwarranted control over the media, the number-one holder of both Viacom and Time Warner is a company called Blackrock. Blackrock is the second largest holder in CCA, and the sixth largest holder in the GEO Group in this never-ending incestuous relationship. This is why you are not hearing about these abuses in the media. By association, the media is a partner in locking up as many prisoners as possible for slave labor purposes.
Overt Slave Labor
Many of Wall Street’s giants have been invited to the party and are reaping huge profits. The following is a list of the corporations that contract with CCA and GEO to produce American slave labor goods. They include Intel, Northern Telecom, TWA, Nordstrom’s, Boeing, Motorola, Microsoft, AT&T, Wireless, 3Com, Revlon, Macy’s, Pierre Cardin, Texas Instrument, Dell, Compaq, Honeywell, Hewlett-Packard, Nortel, Lucent Technologies, Target, and countless more. All of these businesses are excited about the economic boom generation by prison slave labor and most actively lobby for mandatory sentencing.
Generally, prison inmates in state run penitentiaries receive minimum wage for their work. In Agenda 21 controlled Colorado, they only receive about $2 per hour, well under the minimum for state run prisons. However, Colorado inmates are rich compared to inmates in privately-run prisons where they can receive as little as 17 cents per hour. This is worse than Walmart slave labor in China! The highest-paying private prison run by the CCA pays 50 cents per hour for “highly skilled positions.” I am not sure how this is even legal as I remember reading something about the 13th Amendment.
FEMA Prisons Being Built Within Private Prisons
The government will fully admit that they have FEMA type prisons within two Supermax prisons in the United States. It is estimated that about 70 people are being held in CMU units in two federal penitentiaries – namely, in Terre Haute, Indiana, and Marion, Illinois.
This is an NDAA program and these prisons were created to isolate and segregate certain prisoners from the general prison population, and to restrict and monitor communications between inmates and the outside world. Once assigned to the Communications Management Units (CMUs), prisoners are banned from any physical contact with friends or family, and phone calls and letters are restricted too. If they mention anything about the conditions, they will instantly have 26 years added to their sentence and no judge or jury will ever be involved. The Board of Prisons, like the FDA, the BLM and the EPA, are allowed to make up their own laws as they need. Here is one reporter’s account of his experience in a CMU. (ref:http://beforeitsnews.com)
Thanks, Mr. Will Potter! Author of “The Green is the New Red”
For those who don’t look at this let me give a brief overview-
Designation to a CMU may be considered for any inmate whose interaction with persons in the community requires greater management to ensure the safety, security, or orderly operation of Bureau facilities, or protection of the public. Referrals may come from any source, such as, but not limited to, the following:
■ Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU) communication monitoring and intelligence gathering.
■ The Designation and Sentence Computation Center (DSCC), as part of the initial and redesignation processes. ■ Individual institutions or regional offices, based upon an inmate’s behavior or activities.
■ Recommendations from other law enforcement agencies or courts.
THE LISTED ABOVE IS THE REFERRAL SOURCES of what agencies can refer a detainee
Political Reasoning (c) Purpose of CMUs. The purpose of CMUs is to provide an inmate housing unit environment that enables staff to more effectively monitor communication between inmates in CMUs and persons in the community. The ability to monitor such communication is necessary to ensure the safety, security, and orderly operation of correctional facilities, and protection of the public. The volume, frequency, and methods, of CMU inmate contact with persons in the community may be limited as necessary to achieve the goal of total monitoring, consistent with this subpart.
This process has been created to House inmates deemed “Inspirational Significance” and per Will Potter Website Here and here is a couple sentences from his website listed below
It states that there is inmates there that have held Anti-government views and look at this-
Prisoners are transferred out of general population and into a CMU without warning.
In U.S. prisons, there are about 400 prisoners labeled as terrorists[xxi], but only a handful are in CMUs. In McGowan’s case, he was previously at a low-security prison, and had no communications violations. So why was he moved?
Like other CMU prisoners, McGowan repeatedly asked for an answer, a hearing, or some opportunity for appeal.
This example, from another prisoner, shows how those requests are viewed.
“Wants a transfer.” “Told him no.”[xxii]
At one point, the prison warden recommended McGowan’s transfer out of the CMU, saying he had great behavior. But the warden was overruled by the Bureau of Prisons’ Counter-Terrorism Unit working with the Joint Terrorism Task Force of the FBI.[xxiii] are you kidding me! CTU can dictate sentencing and control inmate housing?
Usually CTU – Counter Terrorism Unit will dictate housing and sentencing in a place that is a Military base like Guantanamo. Why has that changed and we are now housing them within Federal Facilities?
CMU inmates, those that are close, Corrections Officers and the Media has called this “Little Guantanamo”
Summary in Closing:
Many issues that arise with this new unit and in BlackoutBunker theory is that this is the beginning of Political Prisons that at the moment are hidden under the blanket of “Terrorism” We see this the majority housed are Muslims which is enough to let the average “Sheeple” read this and move on to there day. But once again this is using the broad term “Terrorism” to strike fear in the average, open up the Governments checkbook and allow phase one of the FEMA Camps.
Daniel McGowan is who Will Potter was referring to in his article was held in this unit and was a American environmental and social justice activist.
This is phase one of the “FEMA camps and if we don’t raise enough awareness, soon we will wake up in a Cell in CMU”
