INFRAGARD: FBI Deputizes Business for Martial Law

Including "shoot to kill" during Martial Law. This is a direct copy of the KGB-citizen-business spy network, now in Amerika. Doing this increases both paranoia and super-patriot fantasy that is quick to mark people or groups as suspicious, especially dissenters of various sorts. Deputizing big business in particular means that "some are more equal than others" (Orwell, Animal Farm), where "Membership has its privileges".

"Protect the Homeland". Sieg Heil! The increasing elements of fascism are plainly evident here and should alarm and awaken the public.

Exclusive! The FBI Deputizes Business

Today, more than 23,000 representatives of private industry are working quietly with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. The members of this rapidly growing group, called InfraGard, receive secret warnings of terrorist threats before the public doesand, at least on one occasion, before elected officials. In return, they provide information to the government, which alarms the ACLU. But there may be more to it than that. One business executive, who showed me his InfraGard card, told me they have permission to “shoot to kill” in the event of martial law.

InfraGard is “a child of the FBI,” says Michael Hershman, the chairman of the advisory board of the InfraGard National Members Alliance and CEO of the Fairfax Group, an international consulting firm.
“At its most basic level, InfraGard is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the private sector,”
InfraGard may be closer to a corporate TIPS program
